This Eric Blair post made me lift an eyebrow. Hmmm. Could it be that we’re now going from so-called “foiled terror attacks” (average one per month since 9/11) to “realized terror attacks” (how many this past week? Las Vegas and a school in Oregon for starters). Now that local police departments are clanking forward with recycled military gear —
— might it be that we frogs are being oh so slowly boiled in this gradual ramping up of the police state? The author thinks that the situation will return to “foiled plots.” I wonder. According to the nydailynews, since Sandy Hook, there have been 74 school shootings.
In which case, we can deduce that we have stepped down one more rung on the ladder to hell on Earth.
But you know, all this is so seriously far removed from the world we who choose life are busy building, that I feel we inhabit parallel realities. In other words, while I do notice that other, godawful, paranoid world, I refuse to dwell in it. Rather, I choose to energize the new regenerative, open-sourced, networked, bottom-up, permacultured, etc. etc. reality with all the skills, talents, vision, and heart at my disposal.
“Top down” power is so 20th century, folks. Let’s realize that humanity is going through growing pains in these still early years of the new, 21st century — when we will learn that real, authentic power is primal, that it comes from the Earth and her relations with her cosmic neighbors; that this primal power reconnect us with each other and other Earthlings within a magnificent, living, breathing, conscious planetary home.
Yes. We will learn from Her how to keep everything in balance, in beauty, and flourishing.
