Fake News, Fake Views, Fake Culture

P1030392

The previous post (Ghosts of Holy Halo Art) spoke of a high class art exhibition that said nothing. Typical. Modern culture, swamped in decadence, doesn’t have much to say.

Did you see the rose dog?

Did you see the dog, the rose dog, in the picture from that post? Most people don’t unless they take the take the time to look. Once you see the dog, that is all you see.

Once you take the time to look at our world, and not what the experts to tell you, you will see very different kinds of dogs, some silent, some with bloody jaws, and many wonders.

Ghosts of Holy Halo Art

RoseDogHorse1040089
I went to an art museum the other day.
High class joint where art wore a holy halo.
Art that said nothing artfully
was artfully displayed
and artfully repeated
in artful variations.
Guardians of art assured us
we were witnessing great art
because other guardians of art
had said so
artfully
and repeatedly.

Not a single emperor
could be seen
naked
in the artfully dressed
halls of holy halo art.

A sibling exhibition
occupied adjoining halls
saying nothing differently
but artfully
repeated in artful variations.
No emperors here either,
not a single bare ass.

The public walked along
mostly in silence
except for an insider or two
who whispered secrets
about the artists
revealed in glossy print
by guardians
who assured us
we could
if we looked carefully
and artfully enough
see genius oozing
from the well-framed art.

If you looked at the public
carefully and artfully enough
you could see them
choking a child within themselves
who was trying to scream
in a most artless manner
about the ghosts
of naked emperors.

Rich Poor People, Poor Rich People

LouisXIV
The Sun King, Louis XIV of France, died 302 years ago. He was one of the wealthest people in the world at that time. Look at his robe! Obviously not prêt-á-porter. Today we would have a chart showing how many 1000s of people could be clothed by the cost of this one garment. Despite its luxury, it’s heavy, bulky and yet can’t prevent him from freezing his ass off when forced to travel in a bumpy, uncomfortable, uninsulated, 6-horse-powered carriage. The stockings he so proudly displays (We need another chart here.) tells us that his royal bottom need not shiver. This might be so, but try to imagine moving around in this get up! Thanks, but no thanks! His wig (Another chart, please!), the fashion of the day, designed to hide head sores indicating syphilis, often housed lice and other unpleasant tiny things.

The average commoner of today travels much faster and much more luxuriously in any cheap car than the 14th Louis could even have dreamed of. And could be entertained by a symphony orchestra during the ride, night or day in rain, snow or storm. Clothes? No royalty or noble of Louis’ day had the wardrobe of simple citizens today. Nice shoes, Lou, but I’ll stick with my runners.

The average citizen today lives better, ”richer”, in almost every aspect than kings, emperors and pharaohs of old. And, should humanity survive, the nobility of today (the billionaires and their court of millionaires) will be viewed as ”poor” sorry figures by the citizens of tomorrow.

Anxieties of defending, maintaining and increasing their wealth plagues the moneyed monarchs of today. They have as much trouble protecting their asses as Louis had. No amount of money can buy security when hot, cold and economic wars rage around the world. Their health will also be seen as endangered by future standards. Even the most pampered of them have children and grand children come into the world with polluted blood containing dozens of particles and chemicals from a contaminated environment. They don’t carry filthy wigs on their heads, but their heads are full of filthy ideas crawling around in ignorance due to their warped perspective of reality seen from the heights of their arrogance.

Although it could appear to be a paradox, the rich people of today would become much wealthier in a world where everyone is secure in their needs and wealth is as common as smiles.

Health is wealth. Security is wealth. Peace is wealth. Friendship is wealth. Freedom is wealth. Love is wealth. Respect is wealth. Justice 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.

Love is wealth.

False Flowers

FalseFlowers1040042

False flowers almost never die
living a pretend life, a blatant lie.
Looks are all that matters they cry,
a scent can merely evoke a sigh,
weighs less than petals that wilt and die.
Lights go out, no time flies
darkness reigns without the Whys.

Dartwill Aquila

Translation:
Instead of false flowers think of false life
where only money matters
and darkness (ignorance) rules if we don’t question (Whys)
the relationship between money and life.

Protecing Children

OldMedicine-1040027

How often have we seen parents trying to protect children from hearing ”bad” language, often by alerting someone cursing that children are present. Parents also cover their child’s eyes if nudity or exposed genitals endanger their vision.

Dear parents, not a single case of brain damage or character deformation has ever been recorded resulting from hearing vulgarities or seeing any part of the human body.
On the other hand mounds of solid research testify to the harmful effects of drinking soft drinks, particularly those with artificial sweeteners. What have you done and what are you doing to protect them from these slow poisons, the zero real thing? What about junk food that encourages junk bodies?

Unfortunately, there is seldom anyone to protect the child from culturally deformed parents.

Propaganda – Micro & Macro

LoneRed1020206

We’re all indoctrinated from birth with the conventional wisdom of the prevailing order.

America, for example, claims to have won a war of independence to establish freedom and democracy for all. The ”all” did not include woman, blacks or the natives of the country. About 35% of the people were gathered under the umbrella of democracy.

That was 240 years ago. Now, everyone is allowed to vote for someone from the 1% to boss over a congress of millionaires administering the decisions of the billionaires (the 6% of 1% of 1% of the 1%ers). This ”democratic” arrangement channels the wealth and power away from the great majority of the people into the hands of an itsy-bitsy teeny-tiny minority.
Democracy!

It should also be noted that in order to develop this ”democracy” from 35% to a core within the 1% tens of millions of people had to be killed and are still being killed all over the world.
Democracy!

Another perspective:

KoreaLadiesL
Show this marching band of North Korean woman to an American. Like Pavlov’s dog they will bark, ”Propaganda!”
Ask them why it is any more propaganda than a picture of American cheerleaders and they will undoubtedly spout all kinds of reasons based on what they’ve been told about North Korea by the people who regard North Korea as their worst enemy. Regardless of what North Korea is or isn’t, why would anyone judge it based on the opinions of their worst enemy? An enemy BTW who is strongly money-oriented and consequently in direct opposition to North Korea’s people-oriented (Juche) philosophy.

While each country claims that the other is dangerously aggressive, only one has military bases all over the world and has bombed and killed (and is bombing and killing) people in other countries.

It would take someone who has been indoctrinated since birth to believe only one side of an argument without hearing the other side. But we don’t need to hear the other side because we are living in a democracy, aren’t we?
