War or Peace? Choose!
You can’t have both; decide…
by R. Ayana
It’s time to share some ideas which will make me unpopular in many circles. To some, the following words may merely seem to be self-evident truths. To others they will appear as grossly inaccurate and simplistic errors. And some will even see them as fundamentally dangerous misinformation spread by an agent provocateur employed by the Powers That Be.
We live in a chaotic world of competing ideals, lofty hopes, and completely outmoded superstitions, of everyday acts of human kindness, barbarically feuding feudal tendencies handed down from bygone eras, of laudable acts of love, compassion and wholesome valour – a kaleidoscopic mindscape of unbridled emotion, untamed thoughts, thoughtless habits and unexamined assumptions. In essence, how do we get to world peace from here?
The first step toward overcoming most obstacles is to examine them. Sometimes obvious solutions can arise from simple observations. Sometimes the simple act of examination can actually be the sole solution required. The ‘reasons’ for war and violence and all other patterns of behaviour are actually internal mental and emotional programs – inherited or imprinted patterns often misnamed ‘human nature’.
The achievement of true lasting peace – individually and globally – requires individuals to examine the thoughts and programs running through their minds, learning to see where these ideas actually come from, and consciously deciding which thoughts and emotions they wish to continue feeling and feeding.
Who are you? Why are you who you are? What do you think you believe? What do you actually do with your precious time? Are you engaged in creating a healthier world? Or are you simply re-enacting ancient programs, habitual designs and decrepit behaviour patterns inherited from long-dead ancestors, discredited cults or heartless institutions?
The major problems the planet faces today all stem from human ignorance and violence. Ignorance breeds contempt and intolerance. Violence begets more violence. Revenge and retribution create endless, pointless repetitive cycles. How can we break these cycles and redirect human passions and energies in the next generation? By examining ourselves, deciding which dreams to enact as reality and casting out the useless baggage that burdens us.
The world is a hotchpotch of differing cultures and ideologies, yet our global family all plays follow the leader. We all live and learn and change to suit the tempo of the times. When any system proves to work better than one it replaces it’s usually widely adopted. It’s up to those nations that consider themselves advanced and aware to create an example for others to follow.
Friends and readers across the literate world – and Americans in particular – it’s time to take responsibility and change the ancient cycles instead of recycling them. It’s time to enact peace in thought, word and deed. Let’s start with the most obvious behaviour that needs to be urgently corrected and rechannelled; violence.
Violence starts in the heart and mind and can be apprehended and altered before it manifests physically. There’s no reasonable excuse for striking another and no reason for outright murder, just as there’s no excuse for war. It’s time to throw down our weapons and repudiate the self-serving lies spread by profiteering politicians, greedy industrialists, amoral weapon makers and grim financiers. No more excuses. We need to keep these dangerous toys away from the kiddies and adults who kid themselves.
In the current milieu of lies and deception it’s high time for people to stop blaming every terror attack and random killing spree in the trigger-happy states of America on the U.S. Government – and to stop using that excuse to play around with instruments of pain and destruction on any scale.
It’s time to admit that average, everyday people armed with guns in a culture rampant with violence and murder can and do use them all the time. It’s time to separate the major and undeniably false flag events (perpetrated mainly by ‘intelligence’ services working for lethal corporations) – 9/11, the Tonkin Incident, and Oklahoma City for instance – from all the petty vengeances and sundry massacres perpetrated by angry losers and loony tune psych patients with ready access to bullets and guns.
It’s time to assign blame for the all-too-regular Sandy Hook, Columbine and Boston massacres to everyday nationalistic wild west gun culture – a cult of death that revels in mayhem, suffering and destruction. The ‘only remaining superpower’ now resembles a tired, retired, punch-drunk prize fighter reeling around the ring of the globe in search of new helpless victims to pummel into insensibility – before rummaging through their pockets and stealing their wallet and jewellery. In any rational world such a citizen wouldn’t be allowed to run around loose in search of a ‘credible enemy’, much less have access to weapons.
The only remaining shred of credibility possessed by the United States of America rests on the fact that life in many other countries is far, far worse.
Americans need to take a good hard look in the mirror and see what’s blindingly evident to the vast majority who dwell beyond the mazing cloud of mass mediated lies that’s forced down every U.S. gullet. Just glance at most movies, games and TV shows the Land of the Fearful uses to entrain its children – the next generation of unfree wage slaves and hapless cannon fodder.
It’s time to realise that – even though they’re playing right into the hands of totalitarian political control freaks – individual guntoting lunatics can and do commit crimes of violence. Regularly. Repeatedly. It’s very unlike the state of affairs in just about every other relatively advanced place on Planet Earth. Very few people in democratic, pluralistic nations have a wish need to own or carry guns around. And yet shills for weapon mongers try and tell us that every mass shooting in the U.S. is a carefully contrived psyop (psychological operation) designed as an excuse to take their guns from them. How absurd – and yet a silly horde of fearful, brainwashed gun cultists happily suck up the bullshit and respew it out.
Were the Columbine school victims crisis actors? Where the youthful perpetrators psyops dupes? Or were they angry lost kids spawned by a culture of violence with easy access to their family’s instruments of mass murder? Sure, Lee Harvey Oswald may have been a CIA dupe and a patsy, but almost all gunmen who take their anger out on others are merely run of the mill angry dopes, not set-up dupes. How many deliberate and accidental shootings occur every day from sea to shining sea?
The U.S. has made many enemies. There really are plenty of people living in nations the West has mercilessly attacked and destroyed who would like to cause as much pain as possible to Western nations. This is the point behind the openly admitted Neocon(man) creation of a ‘credible enemy’; when you attack an ant nest with a pointy stick for long enough the ants will eventually retaliate. Then you may imagine you have an excuse to be armed to the teeth and ‘fight back’ – in practice attacking anyone you like in a feigned fit of rage that masks deeper, unwholesome motives; profit and control.
It’s time to realise that some victims of Western colonial wars are actually capable of following simple, widely available instructions to make pipe and pressure cooker bombs (like almost anyone in the West). And it’s time to understand why. It’s because their children have been starved, forsaken, maimed and murdered for the sake of money and power for five long, painful centuries. For the last five decaying decades the U.S. has been directly responsible for most of this pain and suffering.
It’s time to realise that this madness only benefits control freak dynasties, rich weaponsmiths, psychotic warmongers, obscenely overripe banksters and powerful invested interests like the rifle association. They lead unwitting Americans to believe in an incredible threat so people live in fear of all their neighbours – and waste huge amounts of money on weapons and ammunition that enrich the biggest assholes on the planet; making everyone afraid of each other and their own shadows so they’ll buy more and more lethal armaments. It’s a very old con game and there’s another sucker born every minute.
Many tools of technology are inherently dangerous; a car can kill by plan or by accident. Yet unlike most other technological tools, weapons are designed for one simple purpose; killing. Guns kill. So do bullets. That’s what they’re made for. And most are designed to kill human beings. How could anyone believe otherwise? How can anyone honestly equate a car with a gun?
Why should anyone imagine they ‘need’ a gun in the modern world? Why do so many people believe it’s safer to live in a place where everyone is armed? How can anyone believe a better world can be built if everyone is armed to the teeth? How can any nation imagine it has the right to build, own – and use – nuclear weapons? It’s painfully obvious that all these addled notions are identically daft. It’s just plain M.A.D. – the gun-ho mentality which makes Americans think they have the right to invade other people’s countries, steal their resources and murder their children with impunity every time their bloodthirsty govcorp releases its dumbed down, rabidly vicious dogs of war.
Will disarming a population lead to its enslavement? Americans are enslaved though they bristle with guns. They have the lowest life expectancy, lowest pay, worst health, highest levels of violence and murder and dumbest education system in the advanced world. More people are jailed there than the rest of the world combined. They’re the world’s biggest weapon seller, trapped in a time warp, imagining they’re still fighting some Revolutionary War with powerful enemies breathing down their necks from all sides.
The American imagination is moulded by mouldy old dreams of blood-soaked patriotism, locked into a bygone time when monarchs customarily kept weaponry from their peons. Their armies have slaughtered untold millions of innocent civilians – a tally now even higher than Stalin’s – and as a result the burden of their guilt binds and blinds them to simple truths that underlie all relations between equals; you make more friends with smiles than with snarls, and you can’t sincerely shake hands while holding a gun.
The true revolutionary in any advanced nation is unafraid and free enough to walk down any street without a weapon. Revolution isn’t some knee-jerk reaction by redneck militias but a carefully thought out and boldly actualised ethic and process. The real revolution is a revolution of the mind. Until you examine and free your mind you’re always a slave to the most convincing conman or dictator. A conscious revolutionary knows all about projection and reflection, of karma and dharma. They know that in a real revolution what goes around comes around.
Those well paid apologists for armed mayhem who point out that the Nazis disarmed the German people before instituting their reign of terror never mention the fact that today’s Germany is likewise largely disarmed, yet surprisingly free, wealthy and tolerant – like almost every wealthy nation aside from the US (totalitarian regimes like China’s, of course, are none of these things). Regular random killings and massacres by individuals armed to the teeth really only happen in America.
It’s way beyond time to stop calling all genuine victims ‘crisis actors’ and fakes, when any real examination of the facts (as opposed to a simple clicking of a ‘share’ button attached to some gun manufacture-sponsored video) reveals that REAL people are being maimed and killed in American streets by REAL gunmen and backyard bomb makers. Those who claim the victims are all actors and the perpetrators all patsies are pulling the wool over your eyes – and adding real insult to genuine injury.
Sure, the FBI sets potentially violent people up as fake terrorists – and arms them – all the time, for a multitude of half-baked reasons. But do you really believe the nation that spawned the Black Panthers, the Unibomber and the Weather Underground – a country filled with mentally damaged, well trained veterans of unholy wars – is incapable of producing lone gunmen and bomb making cells? Wake up. The only real surprise is that there aren’t far more of them, given the fact that the US and its allies has already murdered and maimed MILLIONS of innocent foreign civilians in this very new millennium – while multitudes of homeless poor are literally fighting over scraps and dying for want of emergency medical care in the streets of the ‘richest nation on Earth’.
Gun cultists play right into the hands of totalitarian government; they don’t resist Big Brother, but foster him and give him purpose. Curfews, strip searches, xray machines and lockdowns only seem necessary in a nation of people armed to the teeth and riven by internal and external injustices – the Land of the Homeless, Free of the Brave where inequity is at an all time low.
Random shootings don’t appear in a vacuum. These assaults on liberty don’t arise in other so-called ‘free democratic’ nations (aside from, say, Pakistan) – but they do in a triggerhappy country that freely allows anyone at all, including psych patients and morons, access to automatic weapons (particularly at gruesome ‘gun fairs’), and thinks nothing of the fact that everyone can lawfully own – and in many states publicly brandish – tools made for nothing but murder.
Does anyone really believe that owning a gun will protect them from a repressive government? How many gunmen or militias have successfully held off the US government? Why don’t Americans finally grow up and learn to live together without continually threatening each other with death? The British aren’t coming any more; neither are the Russians or Chinese. No-one wants America that much any more. There’s nothing particularly exceptional or unique about it any more. It’s sold its inheritance for worthless pottage and now it’s just one more great big fat fascist mall.
It isn’t a democracy. It’s an ant nest. It’s a shadowy plutocracy of dynastic banksters, fat cat businessmen, media barons and in dust realists, all laughing at their fettered flocks of dumb numbed consumers while bribed and blackmailed glove puppet presidents, congressmen and senators cavort onstage under dazzlingly bright public spotlights in toxic, insectile hive-cities of concreted brutalism. They plod heavily and carry a big stick.
The US isn’t a capitalist society. There’s no level playing field in sight. While imagining itself to be the fittest umpire in a global ball game, the disunited states have grown into a fascist empire of Nazi-like toadies and paranoid death cultists. Fascism is a union of monopoly corporations and repressive, invasive government, designed to entrench a few wealthy families in eternal power (sound familiar?), their coffers filled with goods stolen from other, more helpless peoples in farflung foreign lands.
No wonder Americans have been so easily trained by their filthy rich bosses to hate the idea of a united world or a truly unbiased global arbiter. No wonder the UN is anathema to the deathly gun cultists. No wonder Americans have been so easily brainwashed into distrusting any confederation of nations, including the ones they started themselves. No wonder America refuses to subject its leaders to the scrutiny of international (or domestic) courts; they can’t imagine anyone will deal with them fairly after all they’ve done to destroy the planet and enslave its people in the name of free enterprise –an enterprise so free that industrious entrepreneurs can literally do anything they like to anyone, anywhere, anytime at all with utter impunity.
The filthy rich dynastic industrialists and olde worlde monarchs who actually run the greatest show on Earth have no loyalty to any nation. After all, patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel, a mirage mistaken for reality by fools, narrow minded ignoramuses and rag waving killers in uniform. How swiftly the mighty are turned into arseholes. America has become a violent, ignorant, racist, sexist, religionist house divided against itself. Like the rest of the world, it cannot stand without radical rebuilding and remodelling.
Society all starts – or ends – in vicious playgrounds. That’s where training and retraining begins. What do honourable people do when a bully threatens someone weaker in a playground? Do they tell the victim to shoot the bully? Do they shoot the bully? Do they lock them up in a cage to be brutalised by child molesters? Do they just assume violence is ‘human nature’ and allow a violent kid who’s been badly brought up by violent parents to enact their revenge fantasies on the weak and lame? Or do they separate the bully from the other kids and ensure they can’t hurt themselves or anyone else while they restrain and retrain them?
How do we get to world peace – and universal disarmament – from here? Because that’s what we have to do in this brave New Millennium, boys and girls – or we’ll all die in a toxic radioactive hell of our own making. Weapons won’t help one little bit, but renouncing them and repudiating all who claim the right to use them certainly will.
It’s incomprehensible that a supposedly advanced, peace loving people that gave the world the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights can be so hypocritical and stupid. It’s insane that they have become as rigid and blind as Nazi Germany.
Change needs to start with the new generation. Commenting from a remote perspective in a wooden cabin in a distant forest I think America needs to change the war loving, star spangled, rocket-firing, blood soaked National Ant Hem all its children are forced to learn and replace it with a peaceful, lovely, natural song like “America the Beautiful” – to stop glorifying flag rags, terror and wartime. Just for starters.
Get real, America. We’ll all still like you if you don’t have a gun – in fact we’ll like you a lot more. We may even learn to love you again! Put down your anger. Do something positive. Beat your guns into shovels and replant the forests your bosses have stolen from you, along with your peace of mind. Occupy all those empty homes rich manipulators stole from you. Stop putting your money into their ripoff criminal banks and learn to enjoy sharing this beautiful world with real friends and friendly neighbours.
Relax. Laugh at the lies of those who want you to work for them, obey them, fight for them and die for them. Tell them to go f*ck themselves instead of doing their dirty work. Stand on your own two feet and dance. Learn to party again. Have a joint and chill out. You’ll be so glad you did – and so will everyone else.
Come to your senses, America – and everyone else. We all need to be whole, sane and peaceful. The path to paradise on Earth is easy to tread. You only need one guiding rule;
Treat others as you would like them to treat you.
Meditate. Examine consciousness. That’s where you find the real revolution. Turn on. Tune in. OPT OUT and create something new and imaginative! See you in the Brave New World.
