The Few that Remain pt 1

“Do not seek death. Death will find you. But seek the road which makes death a fulfillment.”
― Dag Hammarskjöld

America continues to sink into a black pit of despair, seemingly way beyond its event horizon.  Chris Hedges refers to our future as one of sacrifice zones; those areas on this planet where the dead are simply consequences of a corporation’s cost-benefit analysis.  Few remain who willingly make the superhuman efforts required  to protect the living world and her children.  But they are out there.  They remain.

one of the last to stand up to the corporate power that has taken America by the throat and strangled her until her purse spills to the ground.  He is America’s Dietrich Bonhoeffer.  He is one of the last to stand while those with eyes to see turned their heads to avoid what their eyes were seeing.

It’s absolutely imperative that we begin to understand what unfettered, unregulated capitalism does,” Hedges emphasized. “These are sacrifice zones, areas that have been destroyed for quarterly profit. And we’re talking about environmentally destroyed, communities destroyed, human beings destroyed, families destroyed. And because there are no impediments left, these sacrifice zones are just going to spread outward.”

The whole world has become a sacrifice zone.  The shopping mall, main street, the Middle East, Africa and South America, the ground our families walk upon, even our families, are all sacrificed by idiots whose only sense of value is in self-indulgence.  Hedges openly defies corporate power.  He openly defies imperialism. Hedges stood up to Obama, suing him for claiming the right to take the sons and daughters of this world for any reason whatsoever.

Hugo Chavez, another of those normal human beings with normal human faults,  took his power and turned his corner of the world into a better place. The corporate empire mocked him for his sensitivity towards the poor and towards the human spirit. In the end, his last words were that he did not want to die:

The sanctification of Venezuela’s charismatic leader Hugo Chavez continued in earnest on Tuesday as his last words were revealed to be “Please don’t let me die” – an entreaty uttered because, the government said, he so desperately wanted to continue serving the Venezuelan people.

It might or might not have been murder, but rest assured we know who benefits.  In our cancerous society only thugs make it out with dignity. But this man did what he could to make life worth living for those who followed him.  He was vilified because he would not turn his country into a sacrifice zone.  It’s too soon to say what the future will hold.  But for his effort the lives of millions reflect the choice he provided for economic and social justice.  He lives on in each of them, because he sacrificed himself.

Thanks to Laura Knight-Jadczyk, one of the last to stand up for unvarnished truth in a time of total deceit, history begins to reveal herself to us. Despite years of organized mud-slinging she churns out the true nature of our past, our present, and what it portends for our future.lauraknightjadczyk

In spite of the pathological persistence of her defamers, and in fact because of it, she uncovered the psychological and sociological science of Ponerology.  She brought to light the darkest secret of empire and social decay, discovered under the horrors of Nazi and Communist rule. She brought it from the edge of the abyss, reaching out to its pioneer the late Lobaczewski, himself marginalized by pathological networks.  Following the tracks led her to uncover the role of cosmic catastrophes in shoving humanity’s collective face into the mud, where the pathological simply had to place his boot over our collective face.  Because of her extensive suffering and life-long work she reveals the true labors of liberation.

“An anthropocentric worldview where man believes he is in control stops people – even people in power – from being aware of the realities of our existence on this planet which include civilization destroying cosmic events.”

My mind drifts from these extraordinary figures to the people they stand up and speak out for. I’m speaking of a girl I saw standing outside the other day, her mother leaving her outside in the cold to drive off to another party, her father nowhere in sight and for good reason.  This girl was young and you’ve seen her brown hair before, her yellow raincoat a hand-me-down so big she swims in it.  You’ve seen her sad, crying eyes before.

As I opened the door I heard her wailing for someone in this god-forsaken universe to care for her, for her mother to come back for her. I suddenly understood that, in these spreading sacrifice zones, few speak her language any more.  She is mute.  She does not exist to them.  So even if they heard they would not understand. There is no computer program on this planet that can translate for our society what it means to be a girl in a sacrifice zone, her mother leaving her behind to enjoy hours of intoxication and the avoidance of reality.  With a heavy heart we found her shelter, and we found her siblings.  But though I can still hear her crying, I also still remember the glimmer of hope in her eyes when she saw her sisters again.  Long live the king.

And her counterpart, the young boy who turned his pop-tart into a mountain, only to face a school lock-down because someone thought he shaped it into a gun.  The boy whose only crime was to, in his childish way, emulate the pathological culture of violence he was born into, one which turned around to throttle him for doing so.  And his reply?  That he is still hungry. Young man, so are we.

I am not afraid of a heavy heart.  I am  not afraid of the pain of seeing the darkness that has been unleashed on this planet.  Because the more that we see, the more active we become, the more that the light finds a crack through which to shine. I am only afraid that I will not be as active as I could have been. That there is a stone that remains unturned.

At the end of this collective folly we call history it seems we can only react to the “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” thrown down from on high.  The psychopath has the higher ground, and we are trapped through law, morals, and customs that require obedience and meekness in the face of evil.  But the psychopath does not have the highest ground.  The universe has the final say, and it is loud and furious in its condemnation of human strife and ignorance.    The cosmos provides the battle cry for her children, and ultimately engulfs them:

when volcanoes erupt or comets blaze across the sky or meteor storms and weather anomalies increase, the illusion collapses, the raison d’être of the elites (i.e. protecting the people) collapses and the target has always and will ever be, ultimately, the ruling classes.

America sinks into a pit of despair, seemingly far beyond its event horizon.  The fever reaches its climax. So it’s with a heavy heart that I rejoice in knowing that no empire lasts forever.  I rejoice with a heavy heart because a few still remain. That knowledge, that light, can never die. Long live the king, the spirit, the essence that blesses the defenders of her kingdom which knows no limits, which conquers every fear.  May she rise again from her grave in whatever form he, or she, chooses.

Fireballs!!

It was in 2005 that I first entered the word “fireballs” into Google and found out  just how significant an issue for society these comets and meteorites can become.  So the past week has been quite an interesting, eye opening, and shocking experience as Cuba, Russia, and California have been lit up by these harbingers of destruction.

As I joked on facebook, now is about the time that senators should start talking about legislating away these phenomena, but then I remembered that those in control of decision making have actually classified any incoming fireballs, effectively blindfolding the public. So what are we supposed to make of this?  We have the NDAA effectively implementing a military justice system in the United States, so that anyone who speaks out can be arrested and detained indefinitely.

“In broad terms, the stakes I think are very high, because what our case comes down to is, are we going to have a civil justice system in the United States, or a military justice system? The civil justice system is something that’s ingrained in the Constitution and was always very important in combating tyranny and building a democratic society. And what the NDAA is trying to impose is a system of military justice that allows the military to police the streets of America, to detain U.S. citizens, to detain residents in the United States, in military prisons. And I say that probably the most frightening aspect of the NDAA is that it allows for detention, quote, ‘until the end of hostilities.’ We’re now, by my count, at day 4,163 of this war, which is an open-ended war against al-Qaida, the Taliban, and now it’s defined as ‘associated forces’ in the NDAA.”

And of course we have the Patriot Act, the Espionage Act, the drones are being unleashed over American soil and of course the list goes on.  With the quasi police state being jammed down our throats, and meteorites crashing down on us while we are blindfolded in advance, possibly in order to keep us from knowing when and how to protect ourselves, it’s time to admit that the lies that we’ve believed have led us down this path.  And it’s only seeking the truth, as those who have read this far are obviously doing, that can maximize our survival rate.  It ain’t over until it’s over.  So until then let’s live our lives like we deserve to.  Leave no stone unturned and good day!

Update:  There is a radio show that will be covering this topic extensively, beginning at 1:00 Central time here in the US.  You can find it here at blogtalk radio.

Meteors!!

If you were to go to Google and type in “meteor russia” you’d find about 30 pages of the Russian meteorite explosion over the Urals.  It was a shocking event, though many people around the web seem to be complacent, quickly relegating it to the pile “interesting stuff”.  However, with the astronomical rise, nay the explosion, of fireball sightings around the world, it’s starting to look more and more like earth’s strolling through a pretty dangerous part of space.

Why do I say that?  Take a look at this graph from SOTT.net:

With that kind of perspective, let’s examine what else has been going on this week.  According to CTV and several other sources, Cuba witnessed a smaller, yet still potentially dangerous blast.  Sure, it was no Russian meteorite that blew buildings apart and injured around 1100 individuals.  But when someone’s shooting at you, rather than counting your blessings that they didn’t hit you I think I’d rather know how many bullets are left in the gun.  According to Niall from SOTT.net:

It sure looks like we’re dealing with a lunatic with an automatic to me.  And you know what, I’m not hearing anyone offering legislation to save the day.  In fact, I’m pretty sure that those in charge really don’t want anyone to find out how defenseless they are in the face of this moody Mama Nature.  From an amazing excerpt from the book “Comets and the Horns of Moses”:

[P]eople want to believe that their government – their kings and ruling elite – are powerful enough, or pure enough, to control nature such that the floods, wildfires, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions cease and all returns to normal. And the ruling elite take advantage of this during such times by trying to find likely scapegoats in other nations, some minority group in their own country, or their personal enemies – including those who are pointing out that it just might be their corruption that is bringing on all the evils – so as to distract the larger populace from their own possible sins of commission or omission.

The book is available at Amazon.  It’s about cometary bombardment and meteorite explosions throughout history, and how it’s affected our civilizations.  It might be time to brush up on this, if only to know how NOT to react.

So am I saying the sky is falling?  I guess it probably sounds like that doesn’t it?  But I’m not a doomsayer, or a pessimist.  I just hope that, instead of pretending that nothing’s going on, we people can band together and realize that all of the lies we’ve been told for years has literally blinded us to the corruption of our leaders and the danger in the skies.  Will we learn from the mistakes of the past?  It would be redeeming, I think.
