A better person than I can parse and understandthe confounding nature of our world, how we arrive at a multitude of decisions as a disjointed group of politicians handle affairs of our nation from a position of power, personal goals, anger, and disassociation from a particular item of high importance to the people for whom they represent.
It is my belief that our government handlers are anything but centered to their life-long political biases and hatred for their counter-parts, many so paralyzed by their animosity they would deny their nation responsible representation.
An Appalachian transplant, who am I to have such thoughts?
I saw it at recess on the grounds of my elementary and high schools, in the classrooms, in the halls stalked by bullies… Unlike today, we young people were taught ‘Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic’ so we were spared today’s wide-spread indoctrination of blame, of how and who to hate for society’s slide into racial issues, kept alive and more viable to our youth by an almighty ‘National Association of Teachers Union’.
Okay, sure, we must allow for environmental differences, low IQs, high IQs, parental inability to carefully cultivate and fine-tune tolerance and care for a multitude of beliefs. We are built in our early years and that inculcation en masse make for the world we build.
So, we migrate, spread our selective fine-tuning to other cities, other countries, and the centuries roll on with our human sacrifices, wars, famine, and ultimate destruction and re-building…until!
Our ‘Religions’ speak in different tongues, views that see ‘life and death, heaven, hell’ in totally sharp contrast…
Life goes on.
Death goes on.
Zealots go on.
Will freedom and liberty go on?
Can love conquer all?
Can a ‘Cosmic Wave’ pass over the world, instilling in each of us a predominant theme for living?
Does this ‘Cosmic Wave’ erase all of the frailties of the world?
Does Jesus return to make all things right?
Does another planet in another Solar System come to create a true Eloi?
Are we a ‘Lab Experiment’ that has gone wildly awry?
There is so much good in the world – can it not be an unbreakable bond for humanity?
