While We Still Have Time

In spite of the grimness of the times in which we live, there is still hope. If you feel, like I do, that the usual discourse about matters of critical concern tends to be superficial, misguided, and false, then you might find some solace and inspiration here. I will try to offer insight and a holistic perspective on events and issues, and hopefully serve as a catalyst for raising the level of dialogue on this planet.

I was born in 1945, shortly before atom bombs were dropped on Japan. I served in the U.S. Army from 1968 to 1971. I earned master's degrees in Economics and Educational Psychology, and certificates in Web Page Design and as a Teacher of English as a Second Language. I followed an Indian guru for eight years, which immersed me in meditative practices and an attitude of reaching a higher level of being. A blog post listing the meditative practices I have pursued can be seen here.

Looking at the essence

I had planned on writing something lengthy about the Bush "mandate," but ran out of time. A few thoughts are worth mentioning, though. I believe it is important to look at all things in their deepest essence, and the Bush regime, in its deepest essence, is a criminal operation. As such, every act they perform is criminal in nature, and should be looked at with that assumption.

Most clearly in the case of Iraq, but also manifest in places like Afghanistan and Haiti, the Bush crime family is not only criminal, but a murder cult. They kill just for the sake of killing. There is nothing to gain by destroying the Iraqi infrastructure, killing and maiming thousands of its people, and poisoning the atmosphere with depleted uranium other than the joy of killing and destroying. They care nothing about the lives of American soldiers either, as evidenced by the lack of proper equipment and training in Iraq, and the treatment of wounded soldiers after they are sent home. Then there is the "back door draft," the impressment of former military into returning to service (see Smirking Chimp).

What I find most curious about this glee for killing is the implicit belief that by killing people you have attained something. By taking the lives of vast numbers of people, somehow the members of the Bush crime family think that these souls have been rendered unto dust, that they will never be seen again, and that some sort of victory is attained.

On the contrary, serial murder is the clearest and most certain path to one's own suffering and lifetimes of ignominity. I find it ludicrous that "leftists" so bemoan the "success" of the Bush crime family. Repeatedly I find people depressed and enraged that the Bush gang has attained so much "power." To them I say wait a while. The cosmos, the Absolute, will not be mocked for long. Don't give the Bush crime family any power, including the power to make you depressed and enraged. They are not worth it, their "power" is fake, and they will soon be on their way to comeuppance.
