Naykd Poet


cropped-naykdpoet.jpg

Since December 2011 by this blog, I’ve purged my heart, mind and soul; laying Naykd my thoughts to all, to know but, with time of near four years passage, what most did not grow, is awareness to a wisdom, my words, with hope, would sow. Yet, undaunted I pursue this work, not for the charm of accolade or renown but, for the mere chance of survival from that which ails this world; I feel so emotionally, so profound.  It is my only vehicle to solution short of violent revolution upon the corruptness metastasizing throughout this Human institution but to remain discouraged, by its prolific infusion. `Words can be mightier than the sword’ but, for that truth to be known, the right words need be shown, for the courage of strength, to be sown.

YOU


Image result for you

The world feeling stress at the seams;
Truer than life are its worst of dreams;
Hesitant are most to give it a voice;
But there comes a moment, there is no choice.

Every avenue, every domain,
Every institution, established name;
Feeling the pressure, fracturing apart;
Traditions failing those worn closest, to a civil heart.

What remedy, what resolve
Need manifest to this malaise, solve;
Far too great is their weight of dismay,
Leaving loss of hope, to see light of day.

Prophecy of scripture, resigned to by some,
Rendering providence to returning mythical Son;
But reality holds to a much stronger truth:
Solutions reside in the hearts of everyone and, YOU!

Kissinger – Provocateur?


Kissinger's Shadow

CLICK ON IMAGE FOR VIDEO INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR

What unearthly plan gives any woman or man
The right to be untouchable, to have immunity,
To gain the heralded, enviable title of Statesman;
Yet be provocateur to unbridled devastation with impunity?

The ability of such monsters, hands awash in blood,
To gain centre stage in the course of human history;
Emotionally void, eclipsing the constitution of love;
Rivalling the true definition of imposed suffering and misery.

Yet this kind of Being flourishes with unrestrained momentum
As tool to the ambitious powers-that-be to achieve their devious goals;
Only through death will truth held by their inner sanctum
Speak of the brutishness and countless deaths unfold.

Human history is blemished by countless presence of this ilk
Gaining stature of importance and celebrated aggrandizement;
Rewarded for their cunning yet, ignoring the cost of blood spilled;
A testament to the ignorance of humankind and, its willing appeasement.

Reference: Kissinger’s Shadow – the long reach of America’s most controversial Statesman
By Gregg Grandin

Excerpts:

`America’s exceptional sense of itself depends on a similarly ambiguous relationship to the past. History is affirmed, since it is America’s unprecedented historical success that justifies the exceptionalism. Yet history is also denied, or at least what is denied is an understanding of the past as a series of causal relationships. That is, the blowback from any given action—arming anti-Soviet jihadists in Afghanistan, for example, or supplying Saddam Hussein with the sarin gas he used on Iran—is rinsed clean of its source and given a new origin story, blamed on generalized chaos that exists beyond our borders.’

This evasion has been on full display of late, as the politicians who drove us into Iraq in 2003 tell us that decisions made at the time that facilitated the rise of Islamic State militants shouldn’t hinder America from taking bold action in the future to destroy Islamic State militants. “If we spend our time debating what happened eleven or twelve years ago,” former vice president Dick Cheney today says, “we’re going to miss the threat that is growing and that we do face.18 The United States, Cheney insists, needs to do “what it takes, for as long as it takes.”

Kissinger perfected this type of dodge.[emphasis is mine] He was a master of advancing the proposition that the policies of the United States and the world’s violence and disorder are entirely unrelated, especially when it came to accounting for the consequences of his own actions. Cambodia? “It was Hanoi,” Kissinger writes, pointing to the North Vietnamese to justify his four-year bombing campaign of that neutral nation. Chile? That country, he says in defense of his coup-plotting against Salvador Allende, “was ‘destabilized’ not by our actions but by Chile’s constitutional President.” The Kurds? “A tragedy,” says the man who served them up to Saddam Hussein, hoping to turn Iraq away from the Soviets. East Timor? “I think we’ve heard enough about Timor.19″

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.

Miracle To Change


sunrise

Given the tumultuous times we increasingly find our world in, it seems appropriate to give this long ago written poem another spin.  It speaks loudly to the want and hope that humanity recognize the trajectory of its present course that only a blind-fool would think it not toward inhuman sufferance; if not its outright demise:

Miracle To Change

As the world spins on its axis tilt
Twenty-four hours of blood to be spilt

Humanity’s participants long for the day
Brutality and evil will have gone away

If history speaks as loudly as it does
Bullets and famine will win to love

Turbulence and chaos reflected in the skies
Surprisingly some still naively ask `why?

Though beauty of flora and fauna still exist
As casket wreaths it spoils their bliss

Mankind towards destruction seems inclined
What miracle to change will it have to find?

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

Carney-ride To Nowhere


Standing outside, detached, observing willing participants on this carousel of life
Amused watcher to the systematic structure of its repeating traditions
Vocal critic to its unified, cyclical rotation of delineated similarities
Purposely and perceptively disconnected from its contrived ups and downs
That are unquestioningly assumed by most to garner reward: to define purpose
Achievable by pre-set objective: to capture the visible, yet purposely elusive, golden, glimmering ring of inspiration to success
That is tantalizingly hung, dangling, just beyond the measured reach of most daunted players
Yet generation upon generation fall victim to this derived, cognitive societal plan
A contrivance of an invisible, self-appointed force of despotic intellectualism
An elitist minority cult of humanity safe-guarded behind reinforced walls of fractal economics
Blindly defended by legions of the same mindless ticket-holders to this carney-ride to nowhere.
