I want to make a few things clear up front tonight, because I’m getting very specific about politics. I will never again align myself with a party platform. They don’t mean as much as I thought they did when I was younger. I will also confess that the current president is not presidential; I don’t think he is fit to be in the office he is in. That is not because a certain brand of person should be there; it’s because he has little care for the founding principles, documents, structure, rights, freedoms, and laws of America. Being a billionaire, if he truly is one, means nothing in leading a nation.
The foundation of America, as I have shown in many articles, was rooted in Heart-based energy, and it is inclusive and applicable to peoples beyond the borders of this nation. So, yes, in a way, I’m a globalist. I think globally and believe America should act globally. However, that is not saying we change our foundational structure. I believe our foundational structure can accommodate that. Others have, too.
The fact that this 45th president is revered by a minority, a dwindling minority, as a businessman and that businessmen will “save” this country appalls me. This nation was not founded on business principles of modern corporate America. The “business” principles referred to in founding documents, which are used as support so often by the Wall Street thinking types, were freedom and right principles, and they included ideas and philosophies far beyond “business” and apparently beyond the ability of people who think like that to comprehend. Trump is no savior and no boon because he is a businessman.
That all being said, my bias being exposed, I wish to bring the concluding thoughts about the fraud of this Voter Fraud Commission. Last night I asked about the deeper issues involved in it, and those I will address tonight.
The deeper issues are spiritual ones, not religious mind you, but they have to do with those two operating systems of Ego and Heart. Ego isolates, and that isolation can be expressed in thousands of ways. It’s not necessarily easy to call, and in general, not something I even care to do, especially in my everyday world. However, when Ego manifests in hurtful ways, destructive ways that sacrifice the common good and general welfare (sound familiar?), then my Heart, my disposition, my being, inclines towards shedding light. I won’t fight that.
I want to make clear I do not believe some formula has been passed down from ages past to structure an oligarchy of evil. No, but the dynamic force of Ego has not changed, so as I speak of the treatment of Native Americans — some of whom acted in brutal Ego destruction and those actions were used to fuel an oligarchy of an informal conspiracy of control — as I discuss this, the spiritual forces are parallel.
The White oligarchs of the 19th century worked on the sentiments of the unawakened masses to rouse them against Native Americans. The brutality of the government was ameliorated and enforced by the wicked, evil, Ego practice of Manifest Destiny. I truly have no respect or care about any policies that destroy one race of people against another. That’s exactly what Manifest Destiny did to the Native Americans.
How did the government controllers, the true behind-the-scenes controllers (ahem, ahem, Bannon, Kushner, et al) corral and coerce the tribes? They divided them. They set them against one another. They also made promises that the Indigenous Peoples neither understood nor would have agreed to if they did. This was NOT their fault, nor is it ours today.
Amazingly, as has happened with the Dakota Access Pipeline and as is being proposed in grabbing monument and sacred tribal lands from the People, this administration and its minions are using the exact same strategies: Manifest Destiny, promises of big money payoffs, and an unspoken belief in the inferiority of the Native races. It makes me want to puke, not only does it sicken me that this oligarchy believes they can do the same thing but also that so many willingly ignorant egomaniacs support it — because of money, wealth, economic improvements. It is NEVER okay or a Heart motive to destroy, degrade, or denigrate a culture for pecuniary gain — NEVER.
But those in the past did. They vilified the Native Americans and justified their destruction. Oh, they didn’t call it destruction but rather said it was for the progress of christian people. Bull-fucking-shit. If you have never read Dee Brown’s Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, you may not understand this. Brown states this about the years between 1860–1890: “It was an incredible era of violence, greed, audacity, sentimentality, undirected exuberance, and an almost reverential attitude toward the ideal of personal freedom for those who already had it” (Brown xi). Do you get that, my friend?
What occurred was the societal engineers, the oligarchs, the Trump et al of the time, convinced the unawakened masses that they had a right to be wealthy and these savages stood in the way, presented a real and present danger to the civilized, christian way of life, that their freedom was preeminent and to be protected at all costs — even though they had more freedom than any people in history — and worked them up into an “undirected exuberance.” The common mass of unawakened now had an Ego substitute for their own Heart-energy.
And the Native Americans received promises of pittance payments for lands, were given the barest minimum necessary to sustain life in the areas into which they had been forced, and then when value or convenience or sheer murderous intent kicked in, they were displaced or slaughtered once again. There was and is no excuse. There is, however, a reason, the only reason: a malevolent group of oligarchs manipulated, deceived, and eliminated any threat to their power base. They turned the minds and souls of the apathetic and Ego-influenced masses to a common enemy.
And the oligarchs and Egomaniacs would say these things: “Threats against us, which Trump and his team have shown us, abound: those damned Muslims and liberals and those who don’t think like us, and those fucking journalists lying to the left us, lying to the right of us, exposing Ego-hypocrisy. How dare they! And then, those asshole democrat liberals who have stolen our ‘great America,’ the one that it is our Manifest Destiny to have, they have subverted the voting process. We’ll get them!
“Let’s establish a voter fraud commission. Let’s nullify their power. Oh, we can’t tell you how we will do that, but let’s gather them all together through voting records, disaggregate them by voting records and concerns and offer some good stuff to some and to the rest nothing and turn them against one another and confuse them. By god, they won’t be able to upset our power base in the 2018 elections then.”
If you think I’m wrong and ranting, I only have one defense: wait and see. If you think that this whole appeal to many, even though they are a minority, is spurious, wait and see. Do you want to know the duplicity that abounds, that confuses even Trump’s adherents? He wants to create a super cybersecurity pact with the Russians, enter into a partnership, with the very ones who were the criminals in interfering with our democratic election process through cyber hacking! How can anyone not only be calling Trump a purposeful hypocrite and threat to America but also be calling for his immediate removal?
Well, I have written my Heart. As I said last evening, the best answer to all of this — and it is not hopeless — begins with awakening to Heart, discovering Self and creating Purpose. Then, we understand the threat to others and our own freedoms because we wish to engage in our “certain unalienable rights” of “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” Begin there. Then, hear your Heart for how to proceed, how to express your love to this Universe. Some may shine light; some may resist darkness; some may just go on in developing their purpose that includes no political involvement.
I’m just walking in my Heart-purpose, helping others to discover Self, which includes, sometimes, shedding light into dark places.
