N.Korea – Confused About the Obvious

RippledReeds-0296

All 15 members of the UN Security Council voted to enforce damaging sanctions against N.Korea, a little independent country that hasn’t any bases beyond its borders and has never attacked or threatened anyone. The world knows that the United Snakes instigated this act of aggression, but why did China and Russia go along with this mockery of international law?

I turned to one of my very favorite writers who has consistently provided sharp and nourishing analysis of world events. Using the email I found on his website, I asked for his take on China and Russia approving the sanctions.

He responded promptly. Perhaps too promptly, before his brain was engaged:
”There is a lot of politics and diplomacy involved. But please read between the lines: China and Russia will never abandon DPRK in case it would get attacked by the West.”

Stating that politics and diplomacy are involved is equivalent to stating that there will be weather tomorrow. What politics and diplomacy? I might have excused his reply as a brain bump were it not for the second sentence. The sanctions are an attack by the West. He, if anyone, should know this. Russia and China have not only abandoned DPRK, they are accomplices in an act of aggression against it.

His reply compounded my confusion until it forced me to see the obvious. Russia and China are also money-oriented countries temporarily (economically) dependent on the United Snakes. They sacrificed DPRK as an act of appeasement. (And will eventually reap the consequence of their folly.) It’s not about politics or diplomacy, but money, Dorothy, money. Not freedom, justice, honor, peace or any other synthetically manicured euphemism. We can ask ourselves why these two countries never tried to initiate sanctions against Israel or Saudi Arabia, for example. It is their right as permanent members of the UN Security Council. They are obviously more concerned about money than right.

Is it a mere a coincidence that directly after the sanctions China announced that it will fund the construction of a counter-terrorism base in Afghanistan? Surely they know that Afghanistan is an occupied country. Is this what is known as diplomacy?

Entertaining the Suckers

ScumFace1050259

The plutocrat gang running the empire just robbed millions of poor, weak and desperate citizens. All will suffer and many die so that the richest of the richest could get richer. The heist was worth $billions. This rabid greed and psychopathic indifference for the victims caused the devil to blush, but he couldn’t hide his smile at how easily it was done. The thieves had their administrators, posing as a government, call the theft a tax reform and abracadabra… the great crime was rubber-stamped legal.

What does the unintelligentsia and the impotent progressives have to say about this? Basically, besides mentioning it briefly as something not good, nothing. They are having too much fun competing with each other to sling elegant verbal mud at the chief court jester.

Cancer Wearing Bling-bling

Bedize1020898

There is nothing fake about the empire and its plutocrats.
It’s pure evil.
It breaths lies and worships wealth.
It devours flowers, mountains, lovers and lakes
and shits junk.
It’s a cancer with fangs wearing bling-bling.
Ain’t nothing fake about it
except its slaves pretending to be free.

Censoring Words

Once the process of censoring words begins
it doesn’t end
until only two words are allowed,
“Yes, master.”

Defending Offending

Arlak(T)1050188

I saw the glow, a warm cloud of light, before I saw her in the middle. Twenty something? Her beige pants and t-shirt matched her somewhat darker skin. She sat on the edge of the grass, back against a tree and bare feet in the water. Before I could move she patted the ground beside her inviting me to sit down without turning to look at me. How did she know I was there? Why did she trust me in this lonely place? The glow disappeared when she turned toward me, but her smile filled me with warmth.
“You’re up and about rather early,” she said as I sat down.
“Not so uncommon for old people. What’s your excuse?”
I had never heard such a husky chuckle.
“This is one of my favorite places. Grass for my ass, bark for my back and my feet in touch with the deep. Not to mention the view, the mouth of the bay, the bird chatter and the whispering of the leaves.”
“Paradise.”
“Hardly. Unless you’re an old lion about to lie down beside little lamb me.”
A note of distaste accompanied the word hardly.
“You have something against paradise?”
“Can you think of anything more boring? Eternal nothingness; no humor, no action, no sex… and no knowledge. The boss forbids it. Not even a taste. Total ignorance forever! Try marching under that parole. Some paradise.”
She held out her open hand and an apple fell into it. After patting the tree she offered me the apple. I looked up at what appeared to be some type of birch tree. No fruit.
“Who are you?”
“I’m a spirit of life, something like an angel but much more in harmony with reality.”
“Do you have anything to do with (finger quotes) the boss?”
“Hardly.”
The distaste vibrated this time.
“What do you have against God?”
“We are not talking about God, which I happen to know quite well, but a literary figure who forbids knowledge; demands that a man kill his son to prove obedience; chooses a tiny group of people as his favorite (racism), and encourages them to wipe out everyone in their path, women and children included; and allows his own son to be tortured for days and suffer a slow painful death because other people have sinned.”
“What about Jesus?”
“A great prophet, one of the greatest. He preached love, tolerance and the equality of all people.”
“Isn’t he God?”
“Yes, in literature. I was talking about the real, living Jesus not the literary one born of a virgin mother impregnated by his father. As he is believed to be his own father as well, technically, he’s a motherfucker.”
“Wow, you are very insulting.”
“Excuse me. I was trying to inject a little humor into a long, long story devoid of humor. Would it be better to say that he knocked up his own mom as a holy spirit before he was born?”
I could barely hear her chuckle.
“Is that supposed to be less insulting?”
“Am I supposed to deny the truth because it offends some people? If such was the case, Darwin should never have published his theory of evolution. It offended millions of people.”
I didn’t know what to say.”
“There’s a difference between general truths and personal truths. We shouldn’t consciously insult anyone by saying something hurtful.
“This is too much for me.”
“You haven’t tasted the apple yet,” she said and disappeared leaving nothing but an indention in the grass.
And an apple in my hand.

Anti-Christ Pictures of Jesus

JesusEnebyKyrka_4893
The six-fingered, two right-handed Jesus.

This ”Salvator Mundi” (world savior) Jesus decorating the preacher’s podium assumes a standard pose made famous by Leonardo DaVinci. Thousands of similar sculptures and paintings show Jesus making a two-fingered blessing with one hand and holding a cross-topped orb in the other.

Look closely and notice that he has six fingers on his (disproportionate) right hand and that the hand holding the orb is also a right hand. Was the artist drunk when he made this sculpture? Probably. He might also have been playing a joke on the church authorities or the worshippers. This is not uncommon.

This ”anti-christ” picture, like almost all the statues and pictures of Jesus divert from his teachings and concentrate on his symbolic appearance. They render form and sacrifice content. The Bible does the opposite. The looks of the main characters are not mentioned. Their deeds and goals are described, not their appearances.

The anit-christ Jesus is a celebrity. We meet him in a type of at-home-with-God reportage. We eat his breaded flesh and drink his wined blood and make sure his teachings are not given any prominent significance. We are given symbolic flesh and blood rather than nourishing heart and soul.

While depictions of the holies and the saints continue to spread,  the Jesus:s and Marys of today throughout the world pay with flesh and blood so that empty souls and bloodless hearts can accumulate wealth. Jesus!

This was originally posted on June 24, 2013. I post it again to call your attention to the lines: “He might also have been playing a joke on the church authorities or the worshippers. This is not uncommon.”

Not uncommon? Why would they do that? Why indeed. The sculptor and the church were joined in a contract. He provided the sculpture and the church provided compensation. No religion was present in the negotiations. It was a commercial deal. It was business. Business where one part could steer the conditions from a position of strength, while the other part struggled under vulnerable circumstances. These jokes on the church (a six-fingered Jesus with two right hands), like all good jokes, carries a message beyond the smiles. This is a classic employer-employee relationship. In this case the artist is telling his peers to watch out for this church. They will ripe you off every chance they get.

Maybe.
Maybe he was drunk when he made the hands, but he wasn’t so drunk that he couldn’t make them. When he showed the statue to the church personnel, one of the nuns pointed to the hand, “It has six fingers:”
The artist: “Shame on you sister! SHAME! Repent!
Shock and confusion had heads looking this way and that.
The artist: “This six-fingered hand … and this right hand on his left arm (gasping and such are heard) are Keezelofs, they attract the eye of the devil. (a nun faints.) The person who looks for faults instead of seeing the holy is weak in faith.” (Another nun faints.)

The statue remains in place in this admirable church where the parishioners are so strong in faith that none of them seem to notice the six fingers or the right left hand.

Part 3 of Aspartame Trilogy

ColoredWindow1040855

(Note: The two previous articles contain the first two parts of the trilogy; The Love of Expert Money and Snapshot of the Empire .)

The case of winning official sanction to distribute the artificial sweetener aspartame illustrates how money dictates the course of events. Truth, health, people, environment, justice or any value considered precious to humanity has minimal influence in a conflict with money. As Donald Rumsfeld states, “Politics, not Science.” The very idea of denying science should cause people to unlock the safety on their guns. To overrule science with politics is to overrule facts with ideas, or truth with money. As preposterous as that sounds it’s now the law of the land.

Money rules and the rulers know no evil. Aspartame is still on the market and can be found in some 6000 products despite heavy science pointing out that pain, suffering and death has occurred, is occurring and will continue to occur because of its poisonous effects. Anyone responsible for this ingredient spreading among the population declares themself evil. They could justifiably be made to wear small signs such as: Certified Psychopath; Mammon’s Servant; Money’s Whore, or Greed’s Bitch.

Aspartame and other artificial sweeteners harm health, AND are unnecessary. They don’t save lives or cure ailments. We don’t suffer from not drinking sweeten, carbonated, and chemicalized water.

These sweeteners inject poison into our bodies, stress our digestive system and confuse our metabolism trying to deal with these strange molecules that don’t break down into useful elements if they can be broken down at all. What’s our biological machinery to do with all this junk?

The story of aspartame is part of the money-rules anthology of our times. The invasion of Iraq killed 100s of 1000s of people, displaced millions and cause destruction and misery on a mass scale. Just another money-rules story of our times. Vietnam is another ancient money-rules story. As is Kennedy’s assassination.

Among current stories we have: slavery in private prisons; lead-laced drinking water; police thieves and murderers; surveillance; tax-breaks for the richest; serf wages… and many, many more money-rules stories. Not to mention Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Palestine…
Yes, Palestine where the US has its largest military outpost they call Israel garrisoned by Zionist fanatics.

There are pharmaceutical stories; medical stories; food stories; academic stories; oil stories, on and on and on, all parts of the money-rules narrative. The media money-rules story pretends not to know of people-first stories. Money rules. It doesn’t want to hear vulgar people-first stories.

Yes, money rules, but respect, honesty, helpfulness, empathy, humor and the other values written into our DNA contract ferment below the prevailing (money-rules) order causing people-first stories to bubble up to the surface with promises of dramas of life, comedies of love and epics of glory.
