What is Wrong With Humanity?


humanity balanceAt some point in this conversation the words, message, however you may want to term it, will undoubtedly begin to sound as a `rant’. That said, a concerted effort will be made to defer that potential conclusion at all cost to the privilege of your attention to this piece.

Humanity’s presence on this celestial body to which it has been given the unclarified privilege to inhabit for an indeterminate period of time to the present has as history will support, been mired in conflict. Aggression is and, seemingly always has been, at the forefront of this earthly occupation. A condition possibly attributable to the primordial, animalistic, component to living DNA: the innate struggle for all living entities to survive at all cost. But what this does not account for in the case of Humans is the `sentient’ aspect that purportedly differentiates it from other living entities it shares the planet.

So, `what is wrong with humanity?’

According to the Wikipedia’s reference on the topic of `Civilization

“The earliest emergence of [human] civilizations is generally associated with the final stages of the Neolithic Revolution, culminating in the relatively rapid process of state formation, a political development associated with the appearance of a governing elite.

If this holds to be accurate, approximately 9000 BCE was the start of humanity’s evolution to the present era commonly referred to in this the 21st century as the Information Age. A transition period of over 11000 years or, put another way: considering twenty years for each generational cycle – 550 generations.

It is certain many would argue that humanity has progressed substantially to behaving in a more civilized manner meaning, co-existing but, is this accurate?

The underpinning principle to any civilized culture is the `rule of law’. The formulation and establishment of rules and codes of conduct – behavior, a grouping of humans collectively and mutually agree to accept to guide the development and growth of their civilized grouping.

The evolution of this basic principal has undoubtedly met its share of resistance manifest in a variety of ways from the lone-gunman holding up a local bank to corrupt legislators and whole governments often culminating in regional, national and international conflicts.

Examination of the history that brings humanity to its present state now, in the formative years of this 21st century, it becomes evidently clear there is but one principle that truly dictates the course of humanity’s evolution: POWER of FORCE.

The phrase taken from the infamous Star Wars saga: `May the force be with you’ takes on a different connotation in the context of human socio-economic development and advancement where FORCE is derived from two fundamental elements: Money and Bullets. The presence of either or both, in any context of their application, is widely evidenced and proven to supersede the `rule of law’ that underpins a civilized organization.

Ironically, as the presence of humanity surpasses 7-billion and expected to approach 10-billion by mid-21st century, the power of influence increasingly, is residing in the hands of but a few powerful individuals and family dynasties. A situation where 0.7% (32 million) of the global population retain 41% of global wealth (US98.7tn).

This small super-elite group who, through secretive organizations such as the Bilderberg Group, hold high security, suggestively clandestine, conferences at Davos Switzerland to chart the course the remaining 99.93% of humanity will take over the coming decades.

What supports and is essential for this global wealth pyramid to exist and prosper is a myriad and matrix of individual pyramids of power that ultimately support the overall structure of power and influence. Be that by individuals, governmental institutions and/or, private organizations.

All equally share in the application-enforcement of the same two basic elements: money and if necessary, bullets, to acquire, establish and retain such force of influence.

Ultimately the true value of individual human life in the context of such power has to be deemed negligible. The death of countless millions of innocent lives over the last and into the current century is clear evidence to this harsh statement.

A current and living example of all that is being spoken of here resides in the financial dissolution of Greece, a member state to the Eurozone and the European Union.

Without going into the specific details of the Greek situation, suffice it to say the majority of the Greek population are being held captive to punitive, extreme austerity measures imposed by fellow Eurozone states namely Germany and France, for the documented excesses of the minority, Greek elite-wealth establishment.

Emanating from the global financial collapse of 2007-08, Greece amongst other Eurozone member states such as Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Italy, has been embroiled in negotiations to restructure payment of its massive national debt that presently exceeds 200% of Gross National Production (GDP). A level of debt that is unsustainable and never fully repayable when it exceeds the realistic potential of generating revenue to do so.

This dire situation of harsh austerity measures crippling the country since 2009 resulted in the 2015 election of new left-leaning State government party: Syriza on the platform to reverse regulations imposed by Eurozone member states. This mandate is further re-enforced by a 61% majority, national referendum in support of the stated platform even at the cost of leaving the Eurozone but staying within the European Union. This would constitute returning to the Drachma currency from the current Euro.

It is not evidently clear as to the true reasons for it but, the Syriza Party and the Greek Parliament have failed to institute the clear mandate given them by the majority of the Greek populace and have in fact, resigned to even harsher austerity measures than those imposed at the outset of this dire saga.

So again, it begs the question: `what is wrong with humanity?’

Clearly, the super-elite hold the power of money by which to acquire and control a power of the bullet to easily impose and control a power of force upon the majority into sheepish submission.

It would seem self-evident, with a ratio of 9.93:>1, the ability to change the present system to a more equalitarian structure would/should be relatively easy. So why has this not happened and what will it take to do so?

The simple answer is Fear. The fear of disrupting a civilized order as harsh as it may be; to delve into the chaotic and destructive nature of revolution. The types of revolution being played out in theatres of conflict as in the Middle East: Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc.., the Israeli occupation of Palestinians of Gaza and West Bank. In these conflicts all that appears to being accomplished is death and displacement of thousands of innocent lives that once flourished in established civilized communities now abandoned and laying in ruin; possibly for decades.

In conclusion, if one can be drawn, the super-elite will maintain their austere hold of the majority of humanity unless the ways, means and courage, as yet unfathomable, manifest. Failing such a miracle, the road travelled for most occupants and their progeny to this celestial body, seems less than inviting contrary to the prophetic projections of wealth and goodness professed by contrived, propagandist, entertainment-centric and complicit global, mass media.

May time prove this wrong!

France’s Hollande Proposes Creation of Euro-Zone Governmen


Image result for eu flag

Or a coup for Germany?

I came upon the following bloomberg.com article that struck a funny chord.

The article to paraphrase, suggests: recognizing the difficulty arising from the Greek crisis, would it not be better if there was essentially one-Europe: parliament, currency, budget, taxes, etc.. This would be at the cost of the sovereignty of the 19 member (current) country’s.  And given that Germany reigns supreme in the current Eurozone of EU membership, would it, Germany, manage to conclude the struggle seemingly inherent to the past. 

Overall I find it odd that France to be the spoke’s country for this potential unfolding of events. 

There is no doubt the Greek crisis as it continues to unfold, reflecting an increase in civil unrest and disobedience; Euro countries will feel the need, in order to regain stability; expedite the suggested process of a Euro-Zone Government with, potentially, Chancellor Merkel as ????.

UPDATE: It would seem the reasoning proposed here is shared in a Huffington Post article by Nathan Gardels, THEWORLDPOST
“This week the geopolitical balance changed decisively. As Margaret Thatcher long ago, a German Europe, not a Europeanized Germany, would one day be the dominant reality on the continent. The tough terms of the latest Greek bailout and the relegation of France to a junior partner in those negotiations confirm her prescience.”

France’s Hollande Proposes Creation of Euro-Zone Government

bloomberg.com · by Angeline Benoit

French President Francois Hollande said that the 19 countries using the euro need their own government complete with a budget and parliament to cooperate better and overcome the Greek crisis.

“Circumstances are leading us to accelerate,” Hollande said in an opinion piece published by the Journal du Dimanche on Sunday. “What threatens us is not too much Europe, but a lack of it.”

While the euro zone has a common currency, fiscal and economic policies remain mostly in the hands of each member state. European Central Bank President Mario Draghi made a plea this week for deeper cooperation between the euro members after political squabbles over Greece almost led to a rupture in the single currency.

Countries in favor of more integration should move ahead, forming an “avant-garde,” Hollande said.

“Europe has let its institutions weaken and the 28 European Union member countries are struggling to agree to move ahead,” Hollande said on Sunday in a text which was also a homage to his mentor Jacques Delors, a former European Commission President who proposed similar ideas.

Draghi called for the creation of a shared treasury within 10 years in a joint proposal with politicians including European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem last month.

Challenges To Distraction


GREED

Is uniformity to an abiding person inclined
If, always found, they colour between the lines?
Or, in this age of perceived subversion, we find;
The increase in surveillance, demands it be, critically defined.

Lexicon to this 21st Century, conspires to set the stage;
For the eclipse of the past, be it with a whimper or through rage;
The margins of tomorrow will go beyond the written page;
Ear-marked for destruction or, possibly, left living in a Cage!

Challenges to distraction, are losing to the bid;
Manufacture to its reasons: perception to forbid;
Rendering future minds naive, relentlessly morbid;
Pledging a society chaotic and, grievously sordid.

This query-story need not end on so dire a note;
There is gradual rise to reasonable minds espousing hope
But, there is the pervasive mental lethargy of the many, to cope;
For without so doing, it may become a downward slope!

Who Gives A `Fuck’ Anymore?


As with genres as `docu-fiction’ or `monkumentary’, the following is authored in the same vein:

Who Gives A `Fuck’ Anymore?

A space meandering, life-giving, ball of configured atomic-elements, mysteriously infused with conscious-energy, though equally shared among its inhabitants; its degrees of intellectualized representation is definably and, disturbingly evident. This current epoch’s recorded history serving as source-proof to this expression.

The world seems targeted toward a destiny that belies even the bravest of us to stand against; the prodigious, globalist tyranny that blazons this 21st century existence. The fomentation of those whom came before us in the belief; the foresight to the future of human-kind was theirs to behold. But, times committed passage finds the antithesis; contemporary humanity, succumbing to a malaise surpassing the vilest, cruellest, deadliest of viral bacterium: Greed!

Throughout earthly organism that is humanity; greed for ownership, translated to power of position, spreads like a metastasized cancer. Inflicting its sufferance upon the majority; whom have been strategically, economically, brutalized into a permanent, state of subjugation and submission. A pervasive state; maliciously designed to lobotomize intellectual conjuring or real manifestation, in any form, of countering-forces. The ingenious tools to do so include mindless, distracting entertainment genres, legislated civil obedience replete with brutal, armed-enforcement and penalty-mechanisms and, the anchoring shackles of relentless, financial indebtedness.

Dire though this time depicts, it need not be reason to lament the future for human-kind. Intrinsic to the nature of all living entities is the facet: survival. The intuitive mental and physical strength to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles; like the Phoenix, to rise from the ashes, triumphant and determinately driven to reaffirm it presence.

The question remains for humanity: can it do so without repeating the ills of its historic past or, ask itself: `Who gives a ‘Fuck’ any more?’?

The Death Of Innocent Civilians


refugee

 

The deadly game of global chess being played out by the power elites of nations has but one consequence: the death of innocent civilians.

Exploration of the causes/issues that manifest into conflict over the centuries be it regional, national or international; more often than not are the contrivance of pro- or anti– factions to an ideology premised on theocracy, democracy or autocracy and variant machinations thereof.

However, more significant are they whom, above the fray, are the ultimate and true authors, purveyors to these conflicts who recognize and utilize the variants in ideology to their optimum benefit; be the motivation to attain supreme power of control of the mechanistic aspects of global social order or more fundamentally, control of global currency.

Recognizing that every system is inherently defined by a hierarchical structure, often represented as a pyramid; it is inevitable that within the matrix of the grand pyramid structure, comprised of a multitude of sub-system, pyramidal structures, each representing an element of power in its own right becomes source to potential conflict.

Essentially on examination of the quagmire that is the conflict in the Middle East, this is exactly what is transpiring.

Representing the ideology of democracy, grand pyramidal structure in the Middle East conflict is the United States under the auspicious of a Coalition of  Nations (though this grouping can be confidently deemed but a sub-system structure to yet a higher order of power often alluded to as the Power Elite or Ghost Global Governance; reputed authors to the New World Order).

Representing the ideology of theocracy, grand pyramidal structure in the Middle East conflict is presumed to be Islamic Muslims however, in reality, it essentially is non-existent. This conclusion is in recognition of Islam not being a monolithic (religious) organization but rather, is comprised of eight recognized sects within the Middle East, namely: (Source: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/muslims-adhere-to-different-islamic-sects.html)

Sunni Muslims include 84%–90% of all Muslims. Sunni means “tradition,” and Sunnis regard themselves as those who emphasize following the traditions of Muhammad and of the first two generations of the community of Muslims that followed Muhammad.

A number of movements to reform Islam have originated mainly in the 20th century. Some are limited to one country and others have a broader influence. Most are Sunni movements, such as the Wahhabis, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Jama`at-i-Islami.

Shi`ite Muslims comprise 10%–16% of all Muslims. Shi`ites are the “party of `Ali,” who believe that Muhammad’s son-in-law `Ali was his designated successor (imam) and that the Muslim community should be headed by a designated descendent of Muhammad. Three main subgroups of Shi`ites are Twelvers (Ithna-`Asharis), Seveners (Isma`ilis), and Fivers (Zaydis).

Sufis are Islamic mystics. Sufis go beyond external requirements of the religion to seek a personal experience of God through forms of meditation and spiritual growth. A number of Sufi orders, comparable to Christian monastic orders, exist. Most Sufis are also Sunni Muslims, although some are Shi`ite Muslims. Many conservative Sunni Muslims regard Sufism as a corruption of Islam, although most still regard Sufis as Muslims.

Baha’is and Ahmadiyyas are 19th-century offshoots of Shi`ite and Sunni Islam, respectively. Bahai’s consider themselves the newest of the major world’s religions but recognize that historically they originated from Shi`ite Islam in the same way that Christianity originated from Judaism. Ahmadiyyas do regard themselves as Muslims. Most other Muslims, however, deny that either group is a legitimate form of Islam and regard members of both groups as heretics — people who have corrupted and abandoned Islamic belief and practice.

Druze, Alevis, and `Alawis are small, sectarian groups with unorthodox beliefs and practices that split off from Islam. Druze and Alevis do not regard themselves as Muslims and are not considered Muslims by other Muslims. `Alawis have various non-Islamic practices, but debate continues as to whether they should still be considered Muslims.

Then, there is Wahabi & Salafi religions of the Arab States and ultimately, this Sect has four names SALAFI, WAHABI, NAJDI and AHL-HADITH – although today they prefer to call themselves Salafi. (Source: http://www.alahazrat.net/islam/wahabi-salafi.php).

Adding to the fray and confusion are the presence of Israeli Jews, Christians and Muslims and variant fundamentalist orthodoxies within each identifiable sect.

This fragmentation of theological ideology is but one, if not easiest to identify components to the complexity being encountered by the purveyors and pursuers of democratic ideology into the Middle East region.

Historically and currently, human societal order of the Middle East is premised on the concept of Tribalism; each tribe having a designated leader who in-turn, participates in a regional council of tribal leaders. For a fuller explanation of the subject refer to `The Middle East’s Tribal DNA’ (http://www.meforum.org/1813/the-middle-easts-tribal-dna).

Given the nature of societal order within the Middle East being so divergent from that of democratically idealized Western culture nations, renders it an intellectually impossible concept to phantom western-style democracy ever taking root. It is conceivable that a form of parliamentary governance for day-to-day management of such things as public works, tax collection, health-care and other generalized societal organs however, this would likely always be subordinate to the individual Tribal Councils from each province comprising the nation as a whole.

In conclusion; bearing in mind the original, stated premise `every system is inherently defined by a hierarchical structure, often represented as a pyramid; …the grand pyramid structure…’; what is attempted here to clarify; the divergent differences of the two principle facets (factions) to the Middle East conflict, namely; the democratic ideology: an organized grand pyramidal structure versus; theological ideology not nor likely to every be an equivalent structure; the satisfactory outcome will likely be forever indeterminate. And, until this is recognized by those at the top of the grand of grand pyramids pursuing and ensuing these battles, they will conceivably be without end with only one major consequence: the death of innocent civilians.

Immersed in the history treading madness that is this earthly existence, questioning the irrational rationality that yields no qualitative answer evokes emotions beyond description; fomenting a resolve toward disengagement of intellectual processes’ attempt to decipher reason toward objective definition of humanity’s purpose of being within the context of principles of synergistic, symbiotic relevance speculated to be the orchestrated product of a divine, omnipresent  ethereal entity; an arguably acceptable theory that is proving to be failing

Debt


Lost to a moment of delusion
A brief fantasy’s illusion
Found to hide the intrusion
Of life problem’s confusion
To inflict painful mental contusion
Leaving want for such detraction’s infusion
But reality imposed its resolution
By its rigid rule constitution
Demanding immediate payment restitution
To the almighty governing institution
Before final absolve and absolution
