  6. I’ve been on Maiden several times and that quasi army marching chills me. Incidentally, while the media is not picking this up, they have surely picked up on those ‘evil Russian separatists’ fighting in Donests’k and the ‘take over’ of Crimea. So few people know the dynamics of that region.

  7. Ominous and concerning to say the least, especially in the light of growing reactionary, right-wing Polish and Hungarian ethnic xenophobia. I was so disturbed by this interview, it has taken me more than a week to summon the presence of mind to comment ~ and I was so reluctant, probably wouldn’t have, if Lo had not invited me to do so.

    My own view is that the highest dispassionate consideration should be given to the inappropriate influence of established (ie clerically organized) religious bigotry & dogmatism, as the indoctrinating agency most directly responsible in the historical sense, for societal corruption and brain-washing ~ sui generis. So far as I am concerned, that tendency of formal (‘initiatic’) sectarianism is the artificial politicization and perversion of the pure ‘spiritual instinct’ (if you will;) the obtuse reification and vulgarization of an entirely mystical sensibility, that should be altogether free, unrestricted, subjective, voluntary and indeed, utterly personal & private.

    The public, civic and social sphere should remain the vernacular context for diverse fora enabling and empowering cosmopolitan philosophical debate and discussion. Once religion in any form becomes a quasi-secular power, it betrays its own legitimate function as an experiential vehicle and symbolic arbiter of moral action. Hence the devastating extreme consequences we are witnessing everywhere and by all manner of illicit means.

    Humans who allow themselves to become the vehicles of such diabolical forces ~ are in truth, nothing but instruments of demonic energies ~ and therefore base and ignorant slaves of a very real psychotic possession. Those who would exploit or manipulate such negative powers, are even more culpable. If we elect and empower vain-glorious power-junkies who mislead us in the name of righteous intent, we become complicit and responsible, also.

    In a universe of magicians, there will always be lesser and greater lights, and moreover, the very great potential for error, & most especially ~ ample opportunity for self-deception; so few have the spiritual maturity to discriminate, to tell which is which, & what, or who should and will prevail ~ therefore to be wise, we must not be deceived, for there are certainly higher laws ~ but also, always limits. What operates on one plane ceases to be effective on another. So let us be courageous, but scrutinize our genuine understanding most diligently.

  8. It’s of concern that a global war appears imminent. Capitalism dictates that wars are necessary to hit the reset button on global debt. The US is in financial crisis and Trump is ruthless enough to initiate war to cover their losses and then conveniently lose the bills after it all ends, if there’s anything left at that time.
