Like True Love

DragonRuler1090031

”A snake with a burning body
and a single claw beneath its big head
claims to be our ruler
to protect us from those who wished us dead.
That’s impossible of course,
because claws can’t grow beneath a head
and who believes anything
a ruler or burning snake has said?”

It’s the age of lies and darkness
with candles throughout the world.
Flames of decadence cast light.
And shadows.

System Humanity contains over 1340 posts.
Mostly prime political philosophy
casting light
in these dark and decadent times.
It
—like true love—
asks for nothing…
not likes
not subscribers
not sharing
not contributions.
(If a reader doesn’t take the initiative to subscribe
and spread the word,
the word or the reader isn’t up to par.)

System humanity is not affiliated with any group,
organization, institution, business or party.
It
—like true love—
gives
and asks nothing in return.
This is neither generosity, philanthropy or goody-goodyism.
It’s selfishness.
System humanity needs you.
We can’t survive
if not together
in truth and solidarity.

Seeing a Pandemic

SeeYet1090007
What you see is seldom what you get
depends on your needs, depends on your bet,
depends on your angle, depends on your debt.
depends if you’re hunting or struggling in a net
depends if you’re begging or 1st class in a jet.
You’ve probably not seen the worst or best yet.
But you’ve probably seen that life has no reset.

The Covid-19 pandemic has infected the world with many questions, most of which remain unsolved. Contradicting answers show up in different places. Even national authorities fly opposing views and claims from other nations and authorities.
Let’s stick to what is known.

Politics rides the wild pandemic sitting on a medical saddle. Politics rather than science shapes the public view. Powerful interests fog the atmosphere. The numbers tell one story, the media narrative tells another. This “pandemic” has caused the death of 0,003% of the world’s population. That differs insignificantly from a typical winter influenza. But the impression is formed that a Middle Age plague has been resurrected.
Politics. The politics of fear.

The death statistics beat drums of doom. Out of context. The daily tally rings a chilly toll. The elderly contracting the virus are portrayed as receiving a death sentence. “So and so many over 70 have died today”, we are told every day, and are given a comparison with the day before.

How refreshing to hear an interview with Professor Kim Woo-joo from (South) Korea University Hospital, one of the world’s leading experts on virus epidemics. When asked about the death rate for Covid-19 victims in Korea, Kim quoted the following statistics:
80 years of older = 11.6%
in their
70s = 6.3%
60s = 1.5%
50s = 0.5%
40s = 1 patient
30s = 1 patient
No deaths under 30.

Compare these figures with deaths among populations in general and discover that Corona isn’t a particularly dangerous medical condition for older people. Older people die more often than younger people. Surprise! Surprise!

Covid-19 statistics can also be compared with other causes of death. Take any death-causing disease and shout out the daily sum every day in every news report and watch that disease become the celebrity health-eating monster. Suicides have been increasing for years. I suspect the latest figures show an even greater increase because unemployment affects suicide frequency, and a tsunami of unemployment has resulted from the tactics to deal with Covid-19.

1% increase in unemployment causes an increase of 4000 to 40000 deaths in the USA depending the sources. 4000 or 40000? Big BIG difference. There is however not the slightest doubt that unemployment causes death. Even using the lowest estimate (4000 for 1% increase) we can see that the isolation response will kill far more people than the pandemic itself. This is a real life-taking monster in the room. But let’s not talk about that. It’s enough to drive some people to suicide. And death is only one aspect of unemployment. Megan McArdle called unemployment “A fate worse than Death” in a Time article (Feb. 19, 2014), and added, “Unemployment will always be one of the worst things that ever happened to you.”

Not true Megan. A politicized money-oriented way of life based on private-power (as opposed to a people-oriented way of life based on community power) is THE worse thing that has been happening to us for thousands of years. An open debate and honest research throughout a people-powered world would have answered all questions and equipped us to deal with this (perhaps severe) bout of influenza in short order while protecting those most vulnerable. In other words, 1% of the richest people on the planet are the least competent to deal with the health of 99% of the people. Yet they rule. Profit rules. Greed rules. As witnessed by science (truth) being subordinate to politics in the form of private power.

Imaging Imagine

Beware of those wave a flag and drag a hook from their ass.

 John Lennon
born 1940
died at the age of 40
will be gone 40 years this year.
It’s enough to get biblical
but I won’t.

John encouraged us to imagine a world where
all the people lived in peace
sharing all the world.

Imagining such a world isn’t hard to do, sang John.
Sorry, John,
I’m afraid you overestimated the dreamers
and underestimated the schemers
who
instead of imagining living in peace as one
struggle to keep the world a tool
for 1% of the people
to grow in greed
spreading nightmares and illusions
that possessions offer protection
against species annihilation.

The people scream
instead of dream:
Me, me, me
and lose the image of a world
where
war doesn’t exist,
and everyone is secure in their needs,
where
confident people greet each day with motivation
to protect and improve the well-being of everyone,
where
the childish joy of life never fades.

Imagine!

”If we don’t help raise the people below us up to our level,
we will eventually sink to theirs.”

This quote by Dartwill Aquila can be viewed as an extension of the following words:
Community
Humanity
Solidarity
Survival
Mercy
Truth
Love
Joy

It is also an extension of the previous blog, History’s Voice,
which summarizes all history
by its most dominant pattern,
the rise and fall of private power
(along with death and destruction
as part of its growth and decline):

There is no future
except one built of collective power,
the unity of Homo sapiens.
It’s all for one and one for all
or
everyone will fall.

Homo sapiens
each and every one
will either live in wealth
or die in poverty.

Health is wealth. Security is wealth. Peace is wealth. Friendship is wealth. Freedom is wealth. Love is wealth. Respect is wealth. Justice is wealth. Beauty is wealth. Nourishment is wealth. Knowledge is wealth. Love is wealth. Education is wealth. Solidarity is wealth. Laughter is wealth. Kindness is wealth. Motivation is wealth. Employment is wealth. Truth is wealth. Love is wealth. Trust is wealth. Opportunity is wealth. Happiness is wealth. Honesty is wealth. Love is wealth.

History’s Voice

Cool words can’t prevent blood from boiling with injustice.

History’s voice is upon us.
Everyone hears it,
the young, the old, the deaf
Everyone hears it differently,
the many good, the few bad, the lonely
Everyone hears the same thing
the innocent, the experienced, the phony
Everyone knows it speaks an ancient truth
the knowledgeable, the capable, the blind

History’s voice tells us what we already know
but don’t know that we know it.
We are 99,7% alike.
We were equals 95% of our existence.
We are still 99,7% alike but now unequal.
1% rules
99% obey
and it’s been this way
for the last 5%
of the nearly 200 000 years of our days.

Private power rises and falls.
Always.
Death and destruction on the way up.
Every time.
Death and destruction on the way down.
Unfailingly.
Again again again again again and again.
Bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger
right up until every Homo sapiens
is ruled
by one percent of the Homo sapiens
who won the private power scheme
to come so high
they can’t hear desperation’s scream
or see beyond their twisted dream
or feel the cracks in their self-esteem
or nature’s revenge building steam.
You know what I mean.

Private power builds only pyramids
with points of many names
mostly crowned, rarely clever
pharaoh-king-emperor-chairman-president-shogun-whatthefuckever.
The pyramid’s shape remains
regardless of the point’s name.

Private power raises pyramids
with hammered stone and violent steel,
boiling blood and bleached bones
from clubs to drones
burnt cottages and roofless homes.

Dust, dirt and sand…
the remains of greatness
in history’s hand.

You know this, don’t you?
even if you don’t know that the word history means
the search for the roots of conflict.
Private power is the root of conflict,
a virus preying on our species.

Collective power is the cure,
the means of health, harmony and more
It builds gardens flowered with smiles of interaction
and fruits of peace, justice and nourishing satisfaction.
It’s the salve to soothe and repair our lacerations,
give us strength, fill us with love,
show us the beauty of truth
and champion our salvation.

Main-stream Citizens

The media-informed citizens
live in the Great Church of Fear
and listen
daily
to the sermons of the administrators
preaching the gospel
of the money-oriented order
and belief in the winners’
right of ownership
to everything.

In the name of the fatherland,
saintly money
and holy obedience
they are free
to whine, hate
and consume.
Omen!

It’s China’s Fault

DanceRust1000398

The media chorus is singing the “Bad, Bad China” song.  It’s the same song that pours over the citizens every time the exceptional nation tries to justify or defend its actions. The name of the bad-bad victim changes, but the refrain blasts away a constant message, Them the bad guys, we the good guys. And consequently anything we the good guys do is right, no matter how wrong.

The exceptional nation killed 3 million Vietnamese to save them from Vietnam, but, hey!, an exceptional nation gotta do what exceptional nations do. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis were killed and their country devastated to save them from a leader who’s weapons of mass destruction didn’t exist, but good guys have to do such things. Their war against terrorism produced a storm of terrorists, but… (you know the routine.)

The bad guy of the day is now China, but in this case the accusations have merit. It is China’s fault. China kept growing at an astonishing rate: the longest bridges, the highest bridges, the longest railway system with the fastest trains, energy and water supplies traveling 1000s of kilometers, technological advances, megacities, planting 100s of millions of trees, and on and on and on while the infrastructure of the USA was falling apart. China embarrassed the stripes and humiliated the stars of the American image. So when an overweight clown stepped into the spotlight and promised to make America great again, the citizens said, “Just do it!”

It was China’s fault that the USA got a great clown as it’s mouth piece. And consequently, one of the clown’s first actions, cutting the taxes for the super rich, can also be attributed to China. If anyone doubts China’s influence, recall the clown’s next action, a promise to build a great wall. Be honest now! When you hear of a great wall, what do you think of? Nuff said.

China could have left it at that and might have avoided the bad-bad status. But they didn’t. They developed a kick-ass smart phone with the best camera capabilities on the world market at a price a couple C-notes cheaper than the almost as good flagship smart phones in the West. That was the drop that broke some serious hubris hump. Smart phones were almost all that was left of the exceptional nation’s pride. Adding insult to injury, China also develop the fifth generation (5G) communications years before the North Atlantic Empire would be ready.

It was China’s fault that the good guy had to enforce sanctions and cut off access to key services and apps for the brilliant phones of the bad guys. The clown-land geniuses forgot however that China could survive on its own market and that Apple would take a major hit when that market decided it could do without iPhones.

The good guys realized their mistake and tried to negotiate with the bad guys who weren’t impressed with the attitude, offerings or conditions presented. They replied, “You can’t afford to cooperate with us.” Talk about insults. That was a diplomatic way of saying, We don’t want any more of your printed money and you have nothing to offer  that we can’t produce ourselves.

Enter the flu! Excuse me, the pandemic, which, after 4 months, claimed less than 250.000 deaths (0.003% of world population). A pandemic! Please subtract 95% of the fatalities due to underlying health problems to grasp the thinness this “pandemic”. While China stopped the virus in less than two months–they built a 1000-bed fully-equipped hospital from the ground up in 11 days… among other things—the fat clown took the opportunity to throw a few TRILLION dollars at the big bankers and inject some 100s of millions into the military. China’s fault! They never should have allowed that video of the hospital construction on YouTube.

And when a war brakes out we will know it’s because the bad-badies had the audacity to place their country right up against the bases and warships of the good-guys.

Isn’t it time for a word to describe a pandemic of lies, or is propaganda supposed to do the job?
