Make America Again

Not to mention the woman. Hmmm.

Still a mighty poetic cry nevertheless.

Writing in Blood

July 4th, 2020

For the last 2 or more decades of my life, this day is a reminder to me, personally, of all America is not.

The other 364 days of the year, we unconsciously (or maybe we’re semi-aware based on our citizenship status) enjoy the many things America, our home, offers us. Especially if we compare our country to other nations that have even more injustice, political unrest, and violence against their citizenry within their borders.

I maintain this: until there is Justice for All, there is no justice.

Until institutionally-sanctioned violence of every kindis acknowledged, examined, addressed and redressed, always striving toward attaining the best possible equity at every end of the spectrum for the individuals who make up our society, then our society, as a whole, will never know freedom or peace.

Below, a poem by Langston…

Extremism: Sunday Quote

“In a society that is dominated by violent extremists, the “moderate” mainstream ideology is actually extremism and the sane path toward stability looks radical. When war, oppression and ecocide are the status quo, those who just want health and harmony are painted as extremists.” – Caitlin Johnstone. (

Once again I urge you to read the whole article. 🙂

A House Of Cards


Assumption 1: The Method of Counting COVID Deaths is Sensible and Accurate.


Assumption 2: The PCR Test for COVID is Accurate.


Assumption 3: The Antibody Test for COVID is Accurate.


Assumption 4: The COVID Case Count is Rising.


Assumption 5: Thermal Imaging/Screening for COVID is Effective.


Assumption 6: Asymptomatic People Can Spread the Disease.


Assumption 7: Making Schools Adopt Insanely Restrictive Measures Will Stop COVID Spread.


Assumption 8: It’s a Good Idea for Government to Take Abduct Kids from COVID-Positive Parents.


Assumption 9: Social Distancing is Backed by Solid Scientific Evidence.


Assumption 10: Mask Wearing for Healthy People is Backed by Solid Scientific Evidence.


Assumption 11: We Live in a World of Indiscriminate Killer Viruses.


CONCLUSION: Time to Question all Your COVID Assumptions.

“The good news is that these are assumptions not facts. When you look closely, you will realize the entire official narrative on COVID is a house of cards built on sand. It cannot stand up to close scrutiny. This knowledge is the key to remaining sane and free in a COVID-crazed and brainwashed world. Spread the word. Evidence, information and knowledge will dispel assumptions and ignorance.”


Children Of The Understanding Heart

“Everything begins from the source: I am. The power for change begins and ends with us, the individual – not from the hand of a minority elite. The individual has to live within the heart of humanity, as will humanity ever exist within the heart of each person. The question of responsibility is to resist the forces of dehumanization. To defy the forces that place us as anonymous numbers within algorithms. The responsibility is to grow into our humanhood – and to become the humanity that has always awaited us. A humanity within each individual – an individual within our humanity. I am because We are.”

This is a quotation from Kingsley L. Dennis’ article Questions Of Our Time – A Time For Personal Responsibility?

Please do take the time to read, ponder and digest the whole article. Thank you. 🙂

The Process Of Freedom: Quatrain


Which are the thoughts that free you?
And which are those imprisoning you?
Which ones devour your waking hours?
And which new ones are you eating?

The germ for this can be found at Freedom – A Condition Of The Human heart.

MAGA: A Little Background On American Greatness

Borderline: Senryu


What is this border
Between your dream and real life
But a real life dream?


A mighty thought. Next comes right action.

BUDDHA IN THE MUD. There are two truths: the real and the seemingly real. Their connection is the negative emotions. On the path of the seemingly real, the emotions imprison us. On the path of the real, the emotions liberate us. There is a secret life to the emotions.

We Are Sleepwalking In Others’ Dreams

There are those who are aware of this phenomenon,
those who deny it, and those who aren’t bothered.

Globalisation is the process by which businesses
and other organisations –
develop international influence,
operating on an worldwide scale.

If we can see the consequences
of this power in the world,
their dreams do not become our nightmares.

When the Buddha came out of his ‘ivory tower’,
he saw the suffering of old age, sickness and death.
Questioning this, he changed.

We, too, have to see the suffering of greed, deception and injustice
within this technocratic age,
instead of merely accepting greed, deception and injustice.

Questioning this, we change.

Playing The Game

“The cliché is that ‘power corrupts’ but it would be more accurate, and more telling, to rephrase this as ‘the ability to define reality corrupts’! If I have the power to define reality than I am pretty much untouchable; if I have the power to say what reality is and what it isn’t then I can get away with just about anything. How can I get caught out when ‘everything I do is right’ (or when ‘everything I do is eminently justifiable’) and you can be sure that everything I do will be excused in this way if I’m the one in charge of the ‘official validation procedure’!”

One thing we never properly understand is the true function of the power differential in society. We can of course observe, as did Alfred Adler, that there is this drive to obtain and exert power (which Adler derived from Nietzsche’s subtler concept of the ‘will to power’) which effectively incentivizes us to climb as high as we can up the social hierarchy. There are obvious benefits to this – from the biological point of view, having a high social status means (for males, at any rate) that we will have a better chance of passing our genetic material on to future generations, which is of course what the basic biological game is all about. In societies all across the world there are male hierarchies of power but the incentive to compete for a place in them is clearly not about having the precious opportunity to father more babies than lower…
