Note: Let us remember, during this Equinox time when the Sun begins to move through Libra, sign of balance in relationships, that yin and yang always work together. More on that notion at the end of this post.
Okay, what always allows fires to grow when lit? Dryness. And especially, excessive dryness. Even here in Bloomington, Indiana, the recent dry spell set not one, but three adjacent houses ablaze, just yesterday.
But, as Qanon would put it, What really causes the fires? Which means, what is the context, or framework, we should use to understand what has been happening, especially up and down the west coast?
But first, let’s ask, why is it so dry? Is this unusual? Or might either climate change or chem trails plus weather weaponization be involved. I see the climate change mantra brought up often now, but the chem trails plus weather weaponization is still, apparently, relegated to the realm of (nutjob) “conspiracy theory.”
Okay, here are three prominent theories as to who or what is actually igniting the fires, in order from most promulgated to least:
Arsonists, Antifa or otherwise. There are enough anecdotes of homeowners discovering strangers on their property with matches, or fires set on meridians of I5, to get me to think that arson is, surely, one of the causes. Furthermore, if you picked up the message that donations to non-profit BLM (founded by three Marxists and associated with Antifa) are actually funneled through to the DNC for Democratic candidates; and if you put that piece of info in the larger context of Soros-funded democratic District Attorneys who dismiss arrests of antifa arsonists — all part of his (or his handlers) gigantic. massively funded plan to use chaos to bring in the New World Order — well, your cynicism about the motives of the left to get “protests” started, which then turn into riots, and now, fires . . . revs up to warp speed.
DEW weapons: I haven’t paid much attention to this cause this year, but it was certainly bandied about in the strange California fires two years ago that seemed to be targeted to houses, leaving surrounding trees and other plants intact. Huh?
Lousy land management, plus human habitations in forests where they shouldn’t be. No doubt, this also contributes. But it’s when you put this third cause in what can be argued to be its possible framework, that it really makes sense. Here’s a few excerpts from a post sent to me by reader SueM, by David Rovics:
When you read these excerpts, please keep in mind that the author lets us know he is an active BLM protestor who believes the George Floyd narrative, and rails against police violence (while ignoring antifa violence).
All in all, Rovics points to “unregulated capitalism” as the original cause of whatever is going on with the earth under our feet, especially out west. And I find it hard to disagree with this conclusion. On the other hand, unregulated socialism (Communism) would be just as bad or worse! When are we humans going to figure out that we need to continuously and dynamically recognize, honor, and balance all polarities, no matter what they are? It’s not one or the other. It’s never one or the other. Somehow, in own inner lives, in our interpersonal lives, in our community lives, and in the structures we create and then allow to govern us at any level, we need to learn how to regenerate full aliveness by recognizing that, as Neils Bohr said,
“The Opposite of One Great Truth Is Another Great Truth.”
Or, as Walt Whitman famously put it:
“Do I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself. I am large, I contain miracles.”
