  6. I saw this when it was first released; a powerful indictment indeed.

    As I see it now, the future of Israel’s Palestinian “re-occupation” is entirely in the hands of those enlightened and enviably courageous Israelis themselves, who have come to terms with the falsehoods and the fanatical mythicism of post-Islamic Zion. The more Palestinians express their frustration and pain through desperate, symbolic demonstrations, the more repressive the extreme right-wing faction’s response becomes.

    Religious politics and polemic is frankly a contradiction in terms. So long as religion divides ‘our’ world, politics will remain an impotent, spent force ~ a post-facto apology for a superficial and partisan status quo, a pseudo-spiritual & morally compromised quasi-ecosystem that is not ecologically or socio-biologically viable at all.

    The health of an emergent solar-centred cosmopolitan, socially diverse and biologically informed planetary consensus, depends exclusively on our capacity for ethical fulfillment and creative intelligence. Once we accept and acknowledge that we all have these fundamental spiritual rights; that we are all entitled to determine our own metaphysical outcomes; that genuine symbolic knowledge exists for us to explore freely and to express our authentic nature(s,) without restriction or fear of repression and intimidation ~ then we may discover the latent certainty that assures us of that innate right to life and liberty.

    The superannuated reflex that still prevents us from calling the bluff of “authority” has to be challenged directly, through our capacity to simply be ourselves, and make (educated) choices. You don’t have to ask permission to live a decent life; it is your/our birthright. If you find the present constitution(s) inadequate ~ draft your own. No two human beings are the same, not even identical twins. A natural forest does not consist of cloned trees, it is an exquisitely complex adaptive organism.

    We have to be optimistic; but we must also be vigilant and courageous enough to call out the lies of governments and vested interests that, drunk on artifice and purloined force, threaten to undermine and extinguish the possibility of the beauty of life. Real power resides in truth. truth realized, lived and shared. That is the only occult force we need to concern ourselves with; everything else is falsehood, artifice, delusion and vanity.
