The Empire Falls – The Reality Show Lingers

Listening this morning to an ex UK Ambassador pontificate as to how there is nothing that will be forthcoming from the meeting between Putin and Kim, I was aghast at his arrogance and assertion that Russia is a minnow in the whole affair. He stated categorically that all Putin was scrabbling for was a seat at a table far larger than the side table he operated at present.

 

That a representative of an established hornet’s nest of delusional power, spent force and limpet to days and centuries gone by can offer such bilge merely shows to anyone with one eye, two working ears and a brace of brain cells we have at our head a coterie of sore losers, blank firing opportunists who still cling to the belief they rule the world.

 

In some aspects you could argue they have a few strings that are able to alter process by selective pulling, yet what is far more worrying is the dissemination of this bullshit is soaked up by a ponerised, psychologically renditioned public who take these sorts of statements as fact, not fiction as they plainly are. They have long ago left their critical faculties in the rest room of life, to be flushed at will by anyone but themselves.

 

The Western world is in a sorry pit of wilful and undisturbed ignorance. It has been so soaked in distractions and forced into having eyes taken off all balls of consequence. Like some mad dog it jerks a collective head from side to side in unending movements tiring it instantaneously. This leaves it glued to information portals merely instructing it in the most childish and patronising way to keep calm and get on with little things of little and no consequence.

 

At the same time this headless voice encourages the populace to remember “We’re all in it together”, thus the suffering of even greater austerities for that rainbow arrival around the corner in Never Never Land is imperative. Like sheep the people buy it, in spite of that cell within telling them it is bullshit. The desire for compliance, a roof over the head and a quiet life overrides this weak spark every time.

 

As for our doughty ambassador, his minders in the Foreign Office and Tel Aviv merely place him aside and roll on another propagandist head. The flow on a 24 hour rolling news agenda is infinite thus doubling up is considered affirmation and Highly Likely confirms divine truth.

 

On social media the overt amount of idiots repeating such lies and propaganda as evidence of truth is so depressing as to make any critical thinking, sane awakened mind despair. Yet the urge to cry truth and reality is so strong as to never allow desperation to override vocal and written cries of “Watch Out!”, “Follow the Money!” and “Wake Up!”

When we are forced to live in a time where daily, hourly, minute by minute we have to endure the spectacle of a defunct system grinding itself into terminal seizure, it can be wearisome. Groundhog Day becomes Paradise compared with this torturous path.

Personally I am sick of pointing out the bloody obvious.

 

I am tired of so many suggesting there is a middle way, a path of tolerant concession. Meeting the psychopath half way shows just how delusional, ill informed and La La Land inhabited people have become.

 

Our spiritual leaders, who themselves to a great extent are part of the problem advise tolerance and time. Tolerance is a magnificent must have in the array of humanity’s tool kit, yet it takes something far stronger to rid ourselves of the pestilence that is the popular priesthood of political, financial and corporate chicanery. As for time, well I shall just leave that thought there as to how effective it has been so far.

 

Compassion in its true form is a towering human quality, yet judgment and I mean the judgement through human natural law on the raft of illegality vomited on us, in order to bury us all, is something humankind can render on its like well before any supernal judgement may or may not pass its own.

 

It is pretty simple from an over view to render basic human values as pointers to adhere and guide us all. It is a totally other challenge to educate all to not only learn them but practice them as founding principles of life. The inter-knitted confusion designed around the utter travesty and incomprehensible divisions pounded into us all, ascribed and authorised as lending a fairer and more just interrelationship with each and everyone is as usual created to form exactly its opposite – rank division leading to far, far easier manipulation.

 

It becomes more and more efficacious and likely Nature is called to bring on Her big guns of decimation, perhaps annihilation, which has been proven time and again curative to clear the slate, giving yet another chance for those surviving the process to try again. That is Nature’s essential tolerance and compassion in action and like everything else in Her world something we humans must, for our salvation and education, learn to action so we may ultimately interrelate interdependently and connect with Nature our most truthful and honest mentor and wisdom guide.

 

It is fascinating to observe that when faced with how to translate in the Greek biblical texts the word Hermatia, a term in archery for missing the mark and thus encouraging trying again, the great manipulated scholars of our West chose the word sin as its translation. We all know where that has led us, yet how much more compassionate, empathic and supportive things might have been had there been true enlightenment at that point.

 

Ah! there’s the rub!

 

Otherwise it honestly looks like the only way forward is Boom! Bye!! Start from scratch!

He enjoyed getting to know the world, its peoples and a far wider vision of life on earth on others’ behalf and at others’ expense. He has appeared on TV and radio including the BBC, France Inter and online radio. Invited to speak at creative and literary conferences across the globe, in early 2012, in partnership with his wife, having accomplished several translations of foreign writers they made the first ever English translation, in over 900 years, of 11th century Sufi founder and mystic saint Hoja Ahmed Yassawi’s Diwani Hikmet (Divine Wisdom)poetry and sacred verse.
