Forget the movies, reality will give more ... as usual. What Americans are pushed to buy at the coming election is nothing else than tickets for war, war everywhere, war forever.
War at home, war at work, war in the city, war between countries, war in the head and in the body, a world at war, because war means profit, profit means enslavement and slaves mean masters.
But don't fool yourself, the next war(s) are only the follow up of present and past wars for the world is at war from the birth of mankind. War is the process and thus the norm, peace is the exception.
What's wrong with man that he needs to fight for a living ? Does everyone wakes up with a sword beetwen the teeth ? Nope, every next fellow open his eyes full of ... nothingness. Hesitating in a blurred picture of reality is the first sight at dawn. "Shall I go right or left, up or down ?" is the day to day nightmare solved by throwing dices. Noone knows what is to come except the universal wish that it will be no different of what is today, a fight. Lost at home, lost in the mind, lost in the heart but walking, laughing, smashing the doubt with a glass of gin. That's our fate, that's the way, that's the pit.
What is driving this fate ? Illusion. The wrong belief that there exists a concept called superiority. Superiority's drive has one and only result: extinction. The sole viable reality is diversity and cooperation. The one way road leads inexorably to a dead end. Each living entity has its own way of thriving, alone but together with evey other. Life is a chain of multiple entities and death is a long line of a similary process. That's why it takes so long to create life and why death comes as a sudden.
All this inept handling of reality has one primary cause. Man is considering himself a social being before a natural one. If man was to considered himself first hand as a natural being, he would favor overall his family standing and guess what ? That's exactly the recipe of all the Powers That Be first principle and reason of their success, and that's why also the first war that the powerful wage against all is to deprive them of that supreme asset. They do that by keeping "their" people either in misery, either in infancy, either in debauchery. That said, every man should see his own success as that of his family first. Every father is a Priest and all other priests, of religion, of communication, of education, of institution are hijacking the very natur of man to the profit of tyranny.
If such a natural behaviour was prevailing over all the derivatives offered by social groups to succeed for a man, many if not all of the possibilities to reign for the powerfuls would be eradicated at the root. Viewing oneself as a natural being first would also engender a society quite different of the one we have always experimented, if not fully opposed. But that's another - interesting - subject. By the way, there are so many subjects worth of researching not even touched by anybody that for a new world to come for us, there is work for plenty of talents to express themselves indefinitely !! When I speak about family, this is to consider family as a goal in itself and not as a lever of power as the PTB use it. But the most important point for a man to consider his natural state of being before the social one is that this is the only way to give to oneself the value one deserves as an life carrying individual as opposed to the social identity that gives oneself the value of a component in a system.
No government, no crime
We're having a few countries that did pretty well without a working gvt for sometime. Spain, presently and since a few months, Belgium, for two years until last *, and other countries too poor to maintain a suffisant numbers of public offices and their managers, clerks and officers.
When facts checking, what does a government bring in the real picture to its citizens ? Really only one thing: what it embodies in the citizens' minds and the consequences of being that, a representative power, which are, obedience, support, foreign presence, spirit of war to defend its prestige, and much more supposedly for the sole benefit of the People. Translate the results in picture: that means oppression, wars, internals and externals, thezaurisation, corruption, lies and subterfuges and perhaps the one thing that allows all the others, secrecy, a hidden hand, a hidden power.
Because for tyrans to rule a people, there is a need for an obedient people first, just like that of a chief who needs a rabbit to cook a 'civet'. Now, the first job of any government is supposed to embody the people, to help all its citizens and to provide the infrastructure for thebest functioning of the people. Alas, it is the contrary that takes place. The citizens provide their unending support to each of their elected representatives, even their lives, willingly or not.
Why do people have such a deplorable need to make themselves subject of a power they freely chose to impose upon them ? While this might be a survival of the animals' instinct to give themselves a leader in order to survive better, it is in the case of a dominent species more the continuation of a childish 'impuissance' to govern one another equitably by the simple power of mutual agreement and indeed, most if not all of the individuals keep toward the group the understanding they have gained during their teen years.
This is too obvious when observing any group of adults kept together during any unintended meeting such as a cruise, a train journey, a public event and so on where all the people brought together react like first graders in a schoolyard. The show begins ... and ends with superficial behavior, not departed with some genuine goodwill but ending inevitably by the search of a dominant character that would impose its view over the whole, whatever it is until it gets the lead by its strenght, be it moral, immoral or physical.
The great majority of people do not evolve in their view of the collective after their college years ... Teen one time, always teen ! So, instead of acknowledging of a possible and desirable communication and compromission toward common understanding between one and one's neighbour, the main tendency will always be to find a third party to decide what the result should be irrespectively of the question involved, quite incredibly. That's why to become a president or a minister, candidates have nothing to do with the task involved but only need to be in the political favor of the concerned people.
That's how one gets an ex-military news anchor as a minister ... ... in Israel for instance. Then, the specialists are taken into the picture only to confirm a desired settlement from the elected morons who act as the teen leader in the schoolyard. Going to war obeys to the same biaised principle and all the rest goes by in the same manner from education to medicine or law commitees. And that's how people end their days less educated, less united, less everything than they did begin with.
Now, I'll tell you how this happens. Before the desire to feel good, man has the urge to feel right. But feeling right does not imply being right with oneself but with others; it is feeling accepted, well-respected, considered, honoured. Man needs a purpose, whatever that could be, from watching football to counting stars or feeding the dog, or himself. After having chosen one or several goals for ones life, the need is to have them validated by others. Then ... nothing, but repeating the process until death. My way. "Me myself, as everyone around" is the human mantra for ages. From the local governors of Italy's Middle Age cities to the biggest Hedge Funds managers, from jet pilots to the Indian peasants, man is totally unable to live alone if only for this reason.
One's first need is a social endorsement, a society around to be part of, a system to integrate just because of the need to feel right. Society is the rule and Don Juan its prophet. Then, seeming trumps being. Outside overrides the inside. The bark takes on the sap and society the individual. Then on, superiority leads to ambition and criminal devoted lives of ascenting the social ladder at any cost ... And keeping the lead. Game over. If all of the above is howeverembedded in human's brains, the process can be activated and coordinated artificially as it has been for a few centuries.
