SUCCESS IS BEST SERVED NOW!
Justice disappears when law enforcement agencies serve at the pleasure of the President, Vice President, Congress, judges, religious groups or businesses. Law enforcement agencies need to serve the rule of law. Their function should not include the liability protection of public officials. This is an abuse of power.
Animal sacrifice isn’t against the law in Texas, USA. Yet, Texas has animal cruelty laws. So that must mean that Texans don’t regard ritual animal sacrifice as cruel. There’s some glitch about being tied up or restricted in movement, whereby the authorities can come to the rescue. So these people with torture tendencies, religious people they say, must set out to sacrifice an animal without restricting its movement. Or tie it up, torture it, kill it and untie it before the authorities get there.
It’s difficult to imagine that a person with torture tendencies thirsting for the fervor of inflicted pain and the letting of blood would think not to restrict the animal before torturing him or her. Sacrificing an animal presupposes that the animal has already been enslaved, whereby restriction of movement has already been applied. The fact that animal sacrifice is allowed in Texas presupposes that the authorities already know it takes place.
By allowing people with torture tendencies to take out their perversions on animals with impunity, authorities unwittingly encourage and sanction the same behavior, down the road, toward humans. The most horrific and egregious prejudices in the world are committed against animals other than human, by humans. These horrific and egregious practices nearly always lead to torture and slaughter. Yes, torture and slaughter and discrimination and enslavement are all prejudices.
Sacrificing an animal for ritual religious beliefs, or for food, clothing, glue, experimentation or the perverse pleasures of hunting is always based on a system of prejudice using superiority and disrespect as a foundation for those prejudices. When these societies have as their economic base the slaughter of animals, then everything built from that foundation is flawed, and nothing emanating from that foundation will survive long term.
Steps. If you stay on one step too long, the natural inclination is to walk back down, and not to proceed to the next step or to the top.
Sexism. The pervasive nature of sexism in all cultures, at all levels of society by all males, makes it nearly impossible for males to recognize the fundamentally flawed foundation from which they base their interactions with females. This lack of awareness of their own prejudices makes growth in breaking down barriers nearly impossible to attain without great sustained and painful effort from all sectors of society. It’s painful, because males don’t want to relinquish their power, and don’t want to be treated in the same way, with the same disregard, they treat females.
Sexism is so common and rabid that it appears to have become innate through the process of oppressive and backward moving evolution. Even when females surpass the males with whom they compete, their accomplishment is considered less worthy of respect. Place one female in the company of two or more males, and no matter what the circumstance, no matter how noble or sophisticated the males, the behavior of ‘clumping together’ to pile on the female, always emerges to trivialize and denigrate the female.
The world has yet to scratch the surface of this cold, hardened and bitter prejudice that goes far beyond gender based stereotypical expectations of behavior. Interestingly, gender based prejudices pave the way for all other prejudices in society, and even more disturbing is that it is often the role of elder females to oppress their younger female underlings, which raises the expectation of submissive behavior among the peer groups of young females.
Change. A Magic Wand. In some way you must engage in the process of change if you want change to happen. It’s no longer enough to sit back hoping for change while others do all the work of it. At some point you must make whatever contribution you’re comfortable making, understanding that you may be discriminating against yourself by remaining in a comfort zone you’ve long outgrown, but haven’t had the motivation to move beyond. One must experience the process of change in order to continue on the path of change. It’s not like a movie that somebody else writes and your part is written in somewhere near the end, and all you have to do is show up. Change is an evolution of you. Your life, your goals, your setbacks, your challenges, hopes and dreams are constantly in the state of reassessment. Every individual can and does make a difference. A person’s contribution, however, is no greater or lesser than anybody else’s. You can change the world by starting with yourself. It is by changing yourself that you change the world. Yes, that’s right. You change the world by changing yourself.
The good news is that it can be done in an instant. So yes, you do have a magic wand and that magic wand is you. Nobody else can do it for you. It’s called self-correcting behavior. When you change yourself, because we’re all connected to the same universe, that universe changes in your likeness. So make sure your change is a positive one and that it conforms to the five principles to a better life: no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.
The key word is no. If left unchecked prejudice leads to discrimination which leads to enslavement which leads to torture and finally to slaughter unless you take conscious steps to prevent it or once implemented to stop it. However, any one of the fundamental flaws of society can occur spontaneously without going through the process of the others. For example, slaughter can occur without prior warnings of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement or torture when a sudden real or perceived threat to one’s survival occurs. Be assured, however, that when the spontaneous event of slaughter occurs, the other four flaws simultaneously occur with it.
The unpredictable nature of the five flaws makes it even more critical to prevent prejudice from occurring in the first place, by being vigilant of your real thoughts and feelings, rather than those you’re told by society to have. To change yourself, thus the world, you must be an activist. Activist means activity. An activist of “one” means that you set an example of the change you want. For example, if you want everybody to get along, then you make an effort to get along with everybody else.
Using ‘ism’ labels to discriminate is part of a propaganda machine used by groups to discredit in the entirety any person who doesn’t support the entirety of what a particular individual, group or nation does and/or supports. The easiest way to accomplish this is to place sweeping labels of prejudice, such as racism, sexism, ageism, anti-semitism, anti-vegetarianism, gayism, anti-patriotism, terrorism, elitism, cronyism , etc., onto the targeted individual, group or nation. As you see, an ‘ism’ doesn’t always denote a prejudice; sometimes you need to put an ‘anti’ in front of it. It’s all confusing, which is often the point. You don’t know if you’ve been called ‘for or against’ something. This strategy though effective in the short term pulls no long term weight. So for all of you who rush to apologize or go into rehab for social gaffes associated with prejudice, wait out your accuser.
We all have prejudices, but thankfully for the survival of the planet (and the individual), within those prejudices are exceptions to our own prejudices. So for example, those who hate all white people will find some qualities or people within that race acceptable to them. Even those who hunt and eat their prey at every meal, while supporting all the prejudices against those with no voice nor vote, will have a dog, cat or bird for whom they would die.
These little wedges built into our simplest and most complex prejudices keep the doors open to further growth. Of course if you separate yourself from everyone and everything that isn’t exactly like you, you’ll either die of loneliness or develop a prejudice against yourself, which could in the latter situation lead to the development of a wedge, if you value just one thing in yourself, which could open the door to growth once more. So there is hope, even for the most prejudiced among us.
If you’ve ever wondered why anti-semitism is against the law worldwide, punishable by ruined reputations, careers, families, businesses, resulting in targeted assassinations, executed by the Jewish worldwide underground network, you’re not alone. However, anti-semitism is not a dislike of Jews or Arabs, but rather a dislike of Jewish and/or Arab practices. At least this is in accordance with Webster’s dictionary, where we can accurately assume the Jews defined themselves and the ’isms’ associated with them as well as their Arab brothers and sisters.
We can probably safely say that most human on human prejudices toward groups are based on the practices of those groups, usually cultural in nature. Rather than punish those who criticize cultural practices with even more atrocious acts of discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, the very existence and nature of some practices beg to be understood.
If black on black crime demonstrates prejudice of blacks against blacks, then black on white crime demonstrates prejudice of blacks against whites. Similarly, white on black crime demonstrates prejudice of whites against blacks. The color isn’t the issue; neither is the person the issue. It’s the practices of crime no matter who’s doing it that people don’t like and don’t support. Does that create a new category of prejudice called ‘crimeism’? If crimeism is a practice of criminals, then anti-crimeism is the dislike of what they do. Should we be punished by a vast criminal underground network designed to stop all criticism of criminal activity, or does the existence of the practice beg to be understood, and perhaps modified or better yet eliminated and replaced with something updated and more productive?
Evolution affects all that exists, which includes all practices, which includes all religions, all governments, all individual behaviors, and yes, all Gods.
Criticism is a necessary part of the Survival Of Societies. Those societies which treat criticism as a crime punishable by isolation and destruction cannot grow, thus will not survive the rigors and challenges presented by the planet. It’s like growing up in a world without caretakers to teach and guide. Groups insisting on taking care of their own, while telling everybody else to mind their own business or they’ll make their lives a living hell, aren’t exercising survival instincts, they’re withdrawing inward to the exclusion of everybody else, which are the early signs of extinction. The downside to killing off or stifling all those who dare to criticize the practices of a group, is that when an alarm should be sounded to save the group, that alarm will remain silent as a result of past fears of retribution by that group.
Accepting criticism only from like-minded individuals or those contained in the group is prejudicial and self-discriminatory. A willingness to change with new information and a willingness to revisit the utility of old ways is necessary for the survival of any group.
The USA flag has become a sign of prejudice. If you display it, you support the war; if you don’t, you don’t support the troops.
Re: the public square: God is everywhere, including the public square and the local bar. You can take religion out of the squares, the bars, the Halls of Congress and the Oval Office, but as long as someone’s there, so is God. When everybody leaves, God leaves too, while simultaneously remaining behind in everything else.
The direct line to God is the direct line to yourself.
Cruelty. There’s no shortage of cruelty on this planet. Be assured, however, that when choosing between cruelty and cruelty-free to achieve an end, the cruelty-free solution, although not always expedient, is always beneficial to the entire solution. If you’re bent on the way of cruelty for convenience, be prepared for the cruelty you impose to come right back at you — not as vengeance, not as justice, not as cruelty for cruelty, but in the form of war. When you war against somebody else, you war against yourself. Cruelty creates war, and war comes in many forms. If you want war, then you’ll get war by weaving cruelty into your problem solving strategies. Take out the cruelty and voila! A solid, workable solution emerges. In fact, many solutions emerge. Every problem has many facets, so to look for one solution for each problem solves only one facet of the problem.
A solution must serve the entire planet, not just a small group of privileged humans wanting the world to revolve around their needs. The gigantic prejudice this particular group has against the entire planet will come back to them in the form of extinction. That’s the price. Be sure, all you privileged humans out there, that you really do want your privileged peers making those kinds of decisions on your behalf. The planet doesn’t discriminate; it survives. If you get in the way of the planet’s ability to survive, it will try to train you in the ways of survival. It’s a lot easier if you train yourself, before the planet is forced to do it on a large scale, which could adversely affect all that inhabits it.
A God separatist: Somebody who separates God from themselves and everybody and everything else. God cannot be separated from any particle in the universe, no matter how microscopic the particle.
Re: Bill Mahr, comic: If you can’t access your own God to your satisfaction, don’t bully everybody else into thinking they can’t either. “If there was a God, you’d know it?” Just because you have a pulpit from which to spew your inaccurate thoughts, doesn’t make you an expert on anything. If you can discern the courage it takes for a person to intentionally put themselves in a position of annihilation by either being a bomb or marching into a hell fire to be bombed, you’ve already accessed that God. If you’re looking to hear voices, then turn up the volume. Most people prefer that that type of chatter remain in the background where it can move freely without judgement until such time a hypothesis or solution is worked out. So refrain from talking to the world about matters that you’re too inhibited to explore, or less rudely, try being an expert on you, before disseminating a bunch of cosmic garbage that hasn’t yet been sorted. See, you have accessed your own God. Now tame it.
Re: Jerry Seinfeld: If you think stealing another person’s intellectual property is boring because it’s a cookbook, what do you say we steal your copyrighted material, make a lot of money at your expense in lieu of your career and reputation, then yawn exaggeratedly when you jump up and down to complain.
Saving pennies today doesn’t lead to riches tomorrow; it leads to high repair and redo bills, injuries, deaths and lawsuits. A penny saved earns you the headache that you knew was probable when you saved that penny at the risk of the well-being of others, a headache you could have avoided had you put the well-being of others ahead of your own personal greed.
All of your individual Gods in the USA put George Bush back into office in 2004, knowing full well he was a dictator, knowing full well that he was destroying you, your families, your friends, your jobs, your country, and your bank accounts. Let us all hope that you all don’t corrupt your Gods again by repeating this dictatorial history by electing another dictator into office. To all worldwide: If you have the right to vote, then vote out the dictator. Get some courage. Don’t let somebody buy your vote. Take the stand and make a change for the better.
Abuse of Power. Don’t let others beat you up or tear you down for the purpose of building you back up into their likeness. If they’re preaching the life of the five principles, then they already know that you have the power to build yourself up in your own likeness. When engaging in pdetas, there is only one solution–a bad one. When eliminating pdetas, limitless solutions emerge.
Re: dictators: All dictators have endearing qualities. The likes of: Stalin, Mussolini, Idi Amin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao Se Tung, Noriega and Bush could not have gotten millions of people to follow them into hell, unless their personalities endeared them to the masses. In the beginning everybody loves them. In the end that love turns to hate for the dictator, and disgust at themselves for having been taken in by a fraud. Nobody likes to be fooled in the area of adoration. The humiliation of adoring such a figure eventually becomes a source of collective pain, and the masses will rise up against that source of discomfort.
Where people and events block you from your goals, your creative energy will bloom elsewhere in a different way. Trust that you will bloom one way or another; all life does. Some will note that some flowers die before they bloom. Not so. If they sprouted, they bloomed. If the seed doesn’t sprout, then that plant already bloomed before becoming a seed.
Horoscopes are for people who want somebody else to tell them what to do and how to feel. Horoscopes are designed by the government to control the masses. Notice they never tell you to rise up; it’s always to stand down. Everybody else is always holding the cards. Follow the leader? If you’re reading a horoscope then you’re allowing the government to strip you of your power. Be your own leader. Facilitate that ‘leader’ thought.
It only takes changing one small behavior pattern to realign everything else in your life. It’s so easy.
Our behavior needs to become more deliberate. When we’re aware of all of our behaviors, we have power to change them at any given juncture. That’s discipline.
Re: Art: If a picture is worth a thousand words, when nobody counted, then a painting is worth as many interpretations as there are people who look at it.
Consider how small you are in relation to the size of the planet, then imagine how something so small can destroy that planet. It takes only one person to change the world and one person to destroy it.
Torture. Its like the bleach bunny. “How many times do you have to put bleach in my eyes to realize it burns the corneas off, and with repeated applications further destroys surrounding tissues, depending upon where you applied it?” Free the bunnies.
Discipline doesn’t have to be painful and harsh; it can just as easily be empowering, self-educating and fun. It’s all in how you look at it.
People are like variables. Change one and all the others change.
Re: flesh eaters: When societies resort to eating flesh it signals to the planet the demise of those societies, and to the universe the demise of the planet. Some may argue the opposite is true. Look at Africa living on ‘give away grains’. Aren’t they in the process of demise? No. They’re instinctively trying to save their lives by eating plant based foods, signaling to the planet survival. Those eating flesh are signaling demise. Millions slaughtered every day of every year suggests a planet turning on itself. Yes, the planet can be fooled. I think it’s best not to do that however, unless you want to eat plant based products imitating flesh. Mother and father nature sees that trick as a sign of respect for life and will respond accordingly.
I want my Farm Rich non-dairy liquid creamer back. Farm Rich sold it to MorningStar and MorningStar discontinued it. Why would someone buy the rights to a product and then discontinue it? It was the perfect non-dairy substitute for cream sauces, creamed soups, creamy salad dressing. I guess Silk gets the entire market, but as big as they are, they don’t make a Farm Rich type product. Sugar and vanilla do not go very well in cream sauces, soups and salad dressings. It sounds like the veggie people were getting too close to the main dish and the slaughter industry wanted to keep them in the dessert section. I want my Farm Rich non-dairy creamer back–with no animal products. Purely plant based. And don’t tell me a cow is plant based because he or she eats corn.
You have to wonder why with all the allergies and food sensitivities no one is allergic to flesh. Yet, when receiving organ transplants, patients are given special medications to help the body accept and not reject the flesh from another human, pig or cat, etc. In fact, the allergy has yet to be identified. The lack of science has more to do with the slaughter industry controlling scientific exploration than with anything else.
No one can put a jinx, a spell or any other type of hex on anybody else. Because we’re all connected there are innate protections against such intrusions.
Somewhere along the way the United States lost its moral compass. Experimentation on humans thrives in the USA and not just after 9-11. All three branches of government: the judiciary, executive and legislative branches are aware, do not stop, thus sanction experimentation on humans. What is particularly unsettling is that the subjects more often than not are unaware of the experiment, and because they’re under continual surveillance, when subjects become suspicious, the experimenters are quick to let them know via corrective signals, which they know the subject will attend to, that it’s all just in their minds.
Ask yourself questions. Instead of wondering, try to figure it out. This is how you develop problem solving skills–in case you forgot. Remember: If the question is flawed so will be the answer. Stop ranting. Just fix the problem. Impress your enemies. Don’t take your fans for granted, and don’t take advantage of your friends. If you don’t like the terms or conditions, change them–within the limits of the law. Then work to change the laws to conform to the five principles.
By making war inevitable, you take away your own free will.
Re: spies in the press and in the government: What else is new? Oh, you mean you didn’t know that they write the scripts too, and the newspaper and magazine articles? You didn’t know that the talking heads on TV and all the broadcasters are reading from scripts that back room government operatives write? You mean you didn’t know that the text from the surveillance of you in your home is sold to Hollywood producers to use in sit-coms, movies, even advertisements? They not only steal your out loud thoughts, they profit from them. Then when your life isn’t wild enough for the consumers watching their productions, they have the machinery in place, via all the intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies, to put obstacles in the path of your life to see how you squirm under conditions of adversity. Only once it’s done they don’t come in and clean up your life, explaining it’s all just a movie. You’re stuck for the rest of your life with the disasters they created in your life in the name of “learning” for the CIA, and real life thrills for the consumer, and huge profits for a CIA controlled entertainment business in the good old USA.
And now Hollywood producers are receiving a 500 million reward out of the 700 billion dollar bailout we’re all giving to the rich people of America for their bad behavior, under threats of extortion if we don’t pass that bill. Don’t pass it, and they’ll destroy the world economy. Whoa! I figure a big chunk of the 500 million to Hollywood producers belongs to me. They know who they are and they know they’ll be found out.
Provisions in the Patriot Act and the Surveillance Act all permit this, and now nobody can get sued or brought up on charges of copyright infringement for stealing your intellectual property, or prosecuted for enslavement and torture, because the leaders in the USA all have their fingers in that mud pie.
What you write on your personal computer is a lot easier for the Feds to access than most realize; but don’t think it’s only your email they’re after; they access everything. Particularly at risk are writers, artists, scientists, anti-war people, entertainers, public figures, Moms and Dads, Grandmas and Grandpas who don’t sit back and let the world tell them what to do, children, community organizers, religious leaders, vegetarian organizations, and on and on. If you’re alive and using your brain, they’re after your thoughts. Protect them for God’s sake. When a writer speaks out on TV in the defense or support of surveillance, that’s proof that they’re a Federal operative. If they do an impromptu interview on the street, again, it’s a ‘plant,’ an actor, used to convince you via the nightly news, that there’s nothing wrong with it. If you have nothing to hide, there’s nothing to worry about? Whoa. That’s a flat out lie. There is something wrong with it. It’s called enslavement. Be worried; next comes torture.
In case Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, has totally lost her morality and memory, there are anti-slavery laws on the books, that she and all those who voted for the Surveillance Act annulled–with impunity and with prejudice against every citizen of the United States of America.
Why do pro-war people think that anti-war people are pro-genocide? War is genocide.
Re: Dictatorship: A four year term in office for the president of the USA is meant to insure that a dictatorship doesn’t take hold, but it doesn’t fulfill that promise. The USA began a dictatorship nearly eight years ago and has been in a dictatorship ever since. A nine percent approval rating for Congress proves the existence of this dictatorship and further proves the complicity of Congress. In eight years a country can be destroyed from within.
