Happy Summer

(too lazy to change the blog date)


Apologies again for being away for a spell. Thanks to all your kind words and support.


In the midst of turmoil we can learn from others,even those of different faiths.

****
On the radio some nights you can listen in on a program called 'Delilah's, which is MC'd by a pleasant sounding para-psychologist/DJ with the caveat that prior to your calling her 800# you should be aware that " We don't talk about politics here, or religion, or any wars somewhere.
"Just close your eyes and dream of a beautiful place, a quiet place and tell us what you love, what's in your heart tonight and what song you would like played to commemorate the place where you're at."


Let's see , if I called I might say:


"YOU WANNA KNOW WHERE MY HEART IS AT TONIGHT DELILAH? I WOULD LOVE TO KILL HALF THE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS FOR MORALLY AND FINANCIALLY BANKRUPTING THIS COUNTRY AND ENRICHING THEIR POCKETS IN THE PROCESS."

WHAT GRATIFICATION DO YOU GET BESIDES WHORING YOURSELF OUT BY CREATING A BENIGN ATMOSPHERE OF BUBBLE GUM LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE WHEN THINGS ARE GOING TO HELL ?

It would be silly to yell at the nice MC, who is only doing her job and naturally
this would infringe on several key areas that she warned about, and have possible negative effects, not least of which would be a tracer call and a knock on the door later.
Politics suck. I hate politics. Especially these days. But it's kind of hard to keep from mentioning it with WW3 looming in the ME.
I don't want to write about politics that much, except when I have to, but there was one comment made by an anonymous poster over at RI that pretty succinctly puts modern politics as I understand it in prospective.
If this offends you,Tuff.




"How to fight back: I hate to use Matrix-like comparisons but we are literally the batteries of politics. Politics is the space of debate and compromise between people, and political power begins as simply as that. The power is constructed between two people and amplified the more people that take part in the interaction. We have collectively deferred the wielding of that power to political elites internationally. Most importantly we confuse the institutions of that deferred political power, parties, government,treaties, constitutions, as politics per se. But these are only the devices used to consolidate hegemony. They are not politics. They are symbols of power but are not the power themselves. For ultimately their continued legitimacy relies on our collective reconstruction of these symbols as reality, that we are and should be governed by political elites within their protective institutions. And that is where we can fight back. The game being played at the moment is one of confusing the very concept of reality. By constantly changing the justifications for war and creating ambiguous threats as precepts for war, the elites keep shifting the sands and clogging our senses. Refuse to be cast about in the sand. Stand firm. When enough of us stand firm with clear senses we can catch the others being cast about. As long as we keep standing firm a critical mass of people will come to see the lies of the political elites. The sands will become a trickle. We then have an opportunity to reappropriate political power, for if we collectively fail to recognize the institutions then the symbol falters, fails and dies. Politics returns to its natural state of being the space of debate and compromise between people rather than the unnaturally deferred aberration that licenses elites to behave as they want. "

I should add that the anony above and I did not mesh well on other points of view which I will not go into here. If you are curious ,go review the posts.

Well enough of this BS. Time to get into some real good conspiracy.

Until later, thanx for waiting.

thanx Q, yea I thought it was very impressive too.
You can go into RI and see for yourself where we differed, if it indeed was the same Anonomous that I was sparing with.
If he was the same ,then his take on my comment of possible civil war in the US was not taken well.
