Even God uses violence to solve his problems, should we be any different? As above, so below. Universe in turmoil. "And men’s hearts shall fail them for fear and for looking after those things which shall come on the world: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken."
decries Luke...the bible...the ultimate mind virus. It's fun to bask in the glory of human suffering. Life has consequences, deal. The cascade of evil continues. "We're history's actors...and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."
Great societies require great actions. "The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity."
As far as my emotional state of trying to deal with humanities sickening decline, the horrors of environmental degradation, the continued worship of war, the burgeoning growth of malfeasance...I could care actually. I've left this realm already. My emotional needs are moot in the face of a meaningless existence where I cannot fully exclaim my hatred for these issues which have lead to our deterioration. I'm sorry, I do care but have not found the lever to undo the horrors we have laid out before each other. That lever lies within us all. WE must change. WE must destroy the halls of power and return them to the hands of concerned citizens (which should be every last living soul in this place). Abuse of power, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Sarah Sanders objects to being kicked out of a Virginia restaurant while thousands of children lie separated from their parents for seeking a better life for them. Sorry you couldn't get your omelete Sarah, the poor dejected unwelcomed possibly rapists and murders looking for greater opportunity share your grief. Compassion, it counts. Darkest before dawn? I wish all my stupid rants were crocheted on pillows..."I feel I've run a maze for a rat." Wailing at a wall. Oh Auschwitz, oh Earth! Cornelius: [reading from the sacred scroll] Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport, or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him. Drive him back into his jungle liar, for he is the harbinger of death. Deep in the distant future, there is a blanket that will comfort me...somewhere in a land where we all care about each other's well being. What waters will cleanse what we have learned? Violence solves nothing, it never could, it never will. Only love heals. We, who couldn't stop fighting to find the love of God in us. It's the rise of homosexuality, men wedding men, it's a abominable behavior before God. I told you this quote too and it slips under the wire..."we shall poison this world as to deafen the voice of God on the land." For those non-theists or who have an appallingly awful view of the god-thing like me, replace the word God with, that which is truly divine, grace...compassion...forgiveness. Heartless persecutions make wicked sinners of us all. In that same book of Luke Judas is vilified for "betraying" Jesus for money. Don't you think he might have wanted better circumstances for himself as well? Try walking in my shoes. Compassion, the only bell that rings true. My soul aches more than I can bear. I want out of this rotten creation no matter who built it! The late spring, early summer reveals SO much beauty, the flowers deliver fragrances unmatched in creation to the air, my garden rises unaware of the thought that eight minutes from now we could be staring at a ball so radiated with the poisons of thermonuclear explosions that could end ALL life here. What if we are the only bastion of life in the universe? You think it would be worth preserving. Words slips like grains of sand through this hourglass of life. Sad, angry, so angry...I deserve a better life than this...we all do. Hell is the absence of reason. Back to your regularly scheduled program...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzXV-5cV60o
