No Repeat

I feel that we are at the end of a cycle. Civilization is not a method for us to exist. It destroys life.
It has no respect for life.

It was necessary for us to develop the rational mind. Get a really big ego.
Then watch it fade.
Now we’re here. We should have convinced ourselves by now of our power to influence our bodies, our environment, and others.

Why would one want to use that to harm life? Why would one want to use that power to keep others unaware and others supplying them riches at best and sources for their deprivation at worst?

We’re here. What do you do?

You do what you’re lead to do when it fades.
You find ways to reduce your participation in civilization.

There ain’t no gods to save you anymore. You’re here. You’re god.
How do people view your god?

Everything our species has done has been to pursue a conscious awareness of our existence by trying to duplicate ‘better’ the systems we discovered.
Control
Safety
Security

All because we decided we weren’t animals anymore. Our fear of death increased as we dissociated from the natural world and caused us to create our own sphere of existence in our heads.

We walled out those things that might harm us.
Animals are wild and uncivilized.
Where they live is wild and uncivilized.
We might be eaten in the wild.

We can do it better for us.

Israel Tightens Control

Glenn Greenwald at “The Intercept” posted an article that just shows to me how Israel more and more works hard and is succeeding in controlling this government. All of this is going on while, what, 800,000 government employees are not working?

You’ve seen the posts and reposts about AIPAC lobbying, about pro-Palestinian sites and people being harassed and worse.

But you’re a Christian and Israel is our friend right? Maybe you want live under their control, but I kind of want to keep any foreign governments from telling me what to do.

Glenn starts the article with –

When each new Congress is gaveled into session, the chambers attach symbolic importance to the first piece of legislation to be considered. For that reason, it bears the lofty designation of H.R.1 in the House, and S.1 in the Senate.
In the newly controlled Democratic House, H.R.1 – meant to signal the new majority’s priorities – is an anti-corruption bill that combines election and campaign finance reform, strengthening of voting rights, and matching public funds for small-dollar candidates. In the new 2017 Senate, the GOP-controlled S.1 was a bill, called the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” that, among other provisions, cut various forms of corporate taxes.
But in the 2019 GOP-controlled Senate, the first bill to be considered – S.1 – is not designed to protect American workers, bolster U.S. companies, or address the various debates over border security and immigration. It’s not a bill to open the government. Instead, according to multiple sources involved in the legislative process, S.1 will be a compendium containing a handful of foreign-policy related measures, a main one of which is a provision, with Florida’s GOP Sen. Marco Rubio as a lead sponsor, to defend the Israeli government. The bill is a top legislative priority for AIPAC.
