Masters of Censorship

SilverEye-1020942

Once they start censoring words
they do not stop
until only two words remain,
”Yes, master.”

(The censoring is already in progress.
It can be heard by the whispers
practicing the correct pronunciation of
”Yes, master.”)

Hot New House Word

Armerad-1060252

Hothouse is now replacing
global warming as the euphemism of choice.
It’s fever, Dorothy,
environmental fever
indicating a life threatening sickness.
When the fever reaches a certain level
most species die,
snakes, rats, weasels
and anything larger
regardless of their strength
stupidity
or arrogance.

Feathers & Bubbles

BubblesFeathers(C)-1040263

Feathers & Bubbles
Feathers – Feathers- Feathers
Bubbles – Bubbles – Bubbles
BubblesBubbles – FeathersFeathers
FeathersbubblesFeathers
Bubblesbubbles, featherBubbles
Beathers and Fubbles
Dubbles&Febbles

This is the way the media speaks of the earth on fire,
the unprecedented fires in different parts of the world.
Politicians, experts and pundits
babble and bubble about blatant banalities
the same blatant banalities
on how to deal with the fires
how to deal with future fires
how to cooperate in dealing with the fires
how to prepare…
babble and bubble with the weight of feathers.
No one mentions environmental fever,
not even with the euphemistic ”global warming.”
Like discussing the bubbles and feathers
in the picture above
without ever mentioning the dead bird.
Can you see the dead bird?
Can you see the intellectually dead
politicians, experts and pundits?
Of course not,
no more than you can see the gases
causing the temperature to indicate fever.
Can you see the dead-feather thoughts of citizens
expecting the authorities to do something
about the problems
the authorities are responsible for?
Can you even imagine any one authority
suggesting (ever so feather-lightly)
cutting down on playful and entertaining
emissions from combustion engines.
Nero fiddled while Rome burned.
Waterscooters and motor-racing roar
while the earth burns.
Humanity is racing toward extinction
while we discuss the fires lighting the way.

Oh, bubble it!
The whole of humanity weighs but a feather
in the perspective of life on earth.

Bird-brains

BirdsHorseBooks_0994

Look, bird-brains,
owning books doesn’t make you knowledgeable
owning things doesn’t make you acceptable
owning status doesn’t make you likable
owning power doesn’t make you tolerable
and
owning wealth doesn’t make you honorable.

You really own but the power of life
with the possibility of promoting love.
That makes you formidable.

Patriotism -> Matriotism

When you discovery your shortcommings, you can use them to pave your way.

William Blum states in an article written for the 4th of July,
”I’m sick and tired of this thing called “patriotism”.”

I wonder if he says, when he falls, ”I’m sick and tired this thing called gravity.”
Patriotism is a biological response to a threat against one’s community, a primitive response as natural to biological creatures as gravity is to the laws of physics. A community can survive the death of individuals, but no individual survives the death of the community. That which Blum and many of his peers complain about is not patriotism, but the owners of society appropriating the natural tendency to defend one’s community and employing it in the defense of their own interests. This has been done for thousands of years and will continue until we see that the owners of the community defend nothing beyond their own power and wealth. Our community and theirs are two different groups in opposition to each other. When we the people, the subjects of the rulers, couple our patriot response to our own community, the community of citizens, the power of true patriotism will shatter the chains of obedience to our owners who illegitimately award themselves the right to represent and rule us by virtue of their wealth and their spectacular illusions of democracy.

Blum and those who are ”sick and tired” of patriotism are actually declaring that they are sick and tired of patriotism being debased with nationalism and used in the service of despots, tyrants, plutocrats and all manner of imperial rulers wrapped in ”patriotic” robes. Perhaps it’s time to abandon the term patriotism (defense of the fatherland) and embrace the term matriotism (defense of mother earth) for the community of humanity.

Matriots of the world unite! You have nothing to lose but your illusions and obedience.

Great Horror

10Commandments-1050790

The Economic Horror by Vivian Forrester (1925 – 2013) has been added to the Kiss List. First published in 1996 in French, L’horreur économique, it has been translated into many languages. Vivian tells her story with the passion and clarity of light bouncing off the blade of sword aimed at the heart of a dragon guarding today’s mythical view of economy. Her prose borders on the poetical while her message, despite its factual foundation, glows with holy rage at the injustices portrayed.

I don’t know how tall Vivian was in stature, but her intellectual strength towers over most of the pundits of our times. Reading The Economic Horror will strengthen your own intellect and save you lots of time. You will be able to spot different brands of bullshit in a few words. If you haven’t read this book, you are most likely suffering from essential knowledge deficiency.

Taking the Temperature of Our Times

IMG_0957

This picture was taken with a phone camera. Can you guess the location? It’s on the balcony of a little house about a 90-minute drive from Stockholm.

What does the picture say?
Most people would say 55 degrees Celsius. People in the exceptional country would consult their converter and say 122 degrees Fahrenheit. Others would simply say,
”We’re fucked!”

They would all be right. And wrong. As all the people who comment about global warming. Global warming is a euphemism. It’s a question of environmental fever. The earth has a fever. Unlike fever in individuals, the earth won’t die if the fever increases, but a major portion of life on earth will, humanity definitely included. And not only is the fever increasing, all indications suggest that we are on the curve of an exponential development, that is to say, it’s going to get a lot worse a lot quicker.

Can anything be done? Yes. Will anything be done? Probably not enough, but what choice do we have? We either try or die. We can start by putting aside our superficial differences which keep us from uniting and acting as humans. That’s the first step without which we may as well follow Sally Snowflake to the shopping center and buy a suitable wardrobe to arrive in fashion when we get to hell.
