“The first casualty of war is the truth”

It never fails for me to be slightly amazed at humanity.  Paris Hilton became famous cause daddy’s rich,  her sis was on tv and millions saw her on tape giving a blow job. Then as now,  we as a collective people carry on like lemmings falling off a cliff.  Gawd bless Kim and Kanye and whoever is flavor of the next second long internet meme. Lemmings.

Millions now continue to act like lemmings. All forgetting their past.  But why should we teach kids today the nature of persuasion and propoganda?  In Nazi Germany millions were convinced that it was ok to take part in genocide. Your average person tends to need some heavy convincing to help slaughter millions.

How are people convinced that it really is ok to help commmit genocide? Through lies. Persuasion is a powerful tool. Propoganda has been used by humanity,  probably forever.  Chief architect for the third reich Goebbels,  through satire in the form of print media and cinema helped strip the Jews of their humanity.  Helping to bolster the big nosed,  crooked chinned image,  juxtaposed with actual rats… (nice movies)  the Nazi party convinced Germany it was ok to hate.

If you insult,  malign,  spread hate… not once,  not twice but for years toward 1.5 billion people… would you not expect some reprocussions?

International law,  especially in Europe because of World War II,  has laws,  laws differentiating free speech from hate. Look it up,  world law differentiates between the two. One thing Europe DID learn from the Nazi party,  “never again… ”

Today though,  people prefer their latest meme. If Paris Hilton can build a career based on the foundation of fame she got from sucking a penis on film…. Then the French can clearly build sympathy and declare freedom of speech built on a foundation of hate.  For that is what this is….

But humanity runs off like lemmings,  perpetuating and help bolstering hate.  The Nazi party was doing great work. Without the deaths of millions we wouldnt have the soda called Fanta (invented by CocaCola for the Nazi party) or the VW beetle/bug.  Herbie is a Nazi invention,  or due to medical experimentation on live people would we know so much about what NOT to do during pregnancy.

But,  like lemmings humanity goose steps off a cliff… but then:

“there are several ways… to convince people”

(Throbbing Gristle,  convincing people,  album: 20 jazz funk greats)

The image below on the right is French hate propoganda potraying an Islamic woman with a burqa up her butt (a lot of thought and intelligence went into that… not)

Interestingly Faux News is saying the home of last years peace prize winner Malala,  is a terrorist hot bed. Take that you filthy peace prize winner,  fox has you coverd… and knows all about Birmingham. Lemmings.

While romanticized literature describes the Grail as a chalice, this is a much later derivation, extrapolating from Celtic tradition in which the Grail is described as a platter. Many vessels would have passed through the hands of Jesus in his short lifetime…probably humble clay and wooden bowls such as the famous Nanteos Bowl. This medieval relic, long kept sequested in Wales, is thought to be made of olive wood, and was originally revered in Glastonbury Abbey. According to tradition it was secretly carried away to avoid plundering by agents of Henry VIII. The Nanteos relic is a fragment of wooden bowl credited with miraculous healing powers, with well-attested healing effected as recently as the 1950’s. This also is not the Grail, such a humble vessel with proven powers would perhaps be a stronger candidate for having been used by Jesus. Many manifest vessels can hold Grail power, according to human intention, attunement, and practice, but no single one is the Grail itself.

Just in case there are those who refuse to be caught forever by ugliness and seek some alternative, the evil of cruelty makes its claims. Cruelty is something we recognize so easily as a physical activity, yet find so hard to identify in its finer but no less dangerous forms. It is essentially an intentional misuse of power by a strong entity toward a weaker one on the same plant’ of action. For instance, a helpless cripple could scarcely be physically cruel to a strong and healthy person, yet could very well be diabolically cruel mentally to the same person if he were intellectually vulnerable. Cruelty is only possible as a calculated discharge of destructive energy directed at feebler creature unlikely to retaliate effectively. Thus cruelty automatically implies cowardice as well.The motivation of cruelty is commonly again the artificial ego-enlargement resultant from its practice. It makes the little boy feel bigger when he kicks his baby brother. If we can make others frightened of us we seem larger by comparison to their shrinking. That is the secret of cruelty. A false sense of boost because of aggressive action which appears to avoid injurious reprisals. To hurt and kill some helpless and defenseless creature makes cruel people feel enormously powerful by contrast. They may even delude themselves for an instant that they are acting like gods. Taking their pathetic little share of life energy, they are willing to expend this on damaging the lives of weaker beings for the sake of supposing themselves more powerful than they truly are. None cry louder than such cowardly criminals when justified retribution rebounds on them. Nobody hates being hurt more than those who hurt with hate.

We need not always look for evident violence in order to recognize cruelty. It is possible to be extremely cruel in the “nicest and sweetest” ways. Staging little scenes deliberately to humiliate and hurt someone’s feelings while remaining righteously on the side of conventional virtue meanwhile. With the aid of a little intelligence people can contrive all sorts of cruelties yet themselves keep in the clear so far as rule books apply. Attendants in mental hospitals, for instance, have ample opportunity on these lines. So has anyone in charge of children or animals, or whoever is unable to hit back where it hurts most. Let those who think they could not be cruel examine what conscience they have within their own life-frameworks If we are still in human bodies then we are yet capable of cruelty in some degree or another. It is well to see this and convert our energies otherwise as we can.

If only this did not relate to numerous people in my life at the moment… lol oh well, can’t change them, when it is their own internal battle, their own lack. A baby will eventually soil it’s diapers, a hateful, spiteful, ungrateful, manipulative personage will soil their diaper too…although as they are so oblivious they’ll probably sit in their own feces and not notice the difference…..

Sometimes kitty’s are so honest… at least their malice is only over kibble, belly rubs and how much wool you dangle in front of their face….
……………………………………………………………………………….

We and God are not two separate existences; therefore the will of God is also our own will. If we want to change, then God will not stop us from changing. The poet Nguyen Du put it like this:
“When necessary, the heavens will not stand in the way of humans.
The result of past actions can be lifted,
future causes and conditions can be created.”
The real question is, do we want to change or not?

Do we want to hold on to the lure of suffering and let our minds wander around in dreams? If in your heart you want to change, then whatever spiritual being you believe in will also be happy for you to change.

Families work the same way; no person is completely separate. If the son or daughter changes, then the father and mother will also change. If the energy arises from the son or daughter and effects a change in them first, then it will also produce a change in the heart of the father and mother some time later. Families are not made up of completely separate entities. Even if God has predisposed things to be a certain way, we can still change because, as the Bible says, “we are children of God” (I John 3:2).

What is the relationship between the creator and the creature? One has the ability to create and the other is what is created. If they are connected to each other then we can talk about them as subject and object. If they are not connected to each other, how can we call them subject and object? The subject that creates is God; the object created is the universe in which we live. Between the subject and the object there is a close relationship, just as there is a close relationship between left and right, night and day, satisfaction and hunger; just as, according to the law of reflection, the perceiver and the perceived have a very close link.

When the angle of incidence changes, the angle of reflection will change immediately. What we call the will of God is linked to our own will. That is why the retribution of our past actions can be changed.
