The Click in the Brain that Changes Everything

(Note: the Video Weekends are currently stalled because of my relocation — in the worst case this blog may pause for some weeks while I lack both time and Internet access)

WARNING: This can be painful. It might help young (even so-called ‘middle-aged’) people finally grow up inside. But it tends to come with pain. Unlike my fellow human beings, I got to this stage of revelation in my infancy, a condition that always made my fellow humans strike me as some kind of dim-witted semi-sentient alien creatures on whose planet I had unfortunately been dropped somehow. When you get to this stage of awareness (and there is one realization-stage even beyond that *sigh*, one that this frankly imperfectly insightful man in the shared video below has not yet reached) it becomes impossible to glorify or even accept commonly promoted goals and deifications of “meritocratic” competition, rich ruling classes, allegedly “free” markets, oh-so-successful big business “thought leaders”, warmongering jingoism, and similar blind idiocies. It is our lives that really count, both our own and all the other lives in the world, lives infinitesimally short and usually very painful at least towards their ends (if not throughout as they are increasingly becoming to more and more of us human beings despite human domination). To not prepare for the end phase (or ideally even consider preventing it, which would be our ultimate ascension) — not just for oneself but for all of us — and to even artificially make life terrible at younger stages through things like exploitation, abuse, solidarity replaced with excessive competition, and the artificially created poverty; is just utterly insane.

It’s also a main reason why so many people seek refuge in religions who promise eternal lives of some kind or another — but without any evidence. Without any evidence whatsoever. How is that different from putting blinders on? (and may I remind you that Buddha, Jesus, and at least partially Muhammad, as far as I have seen, fought for social justice, solidarity, and compassion?)

Well, below is this video you have been warned about. I can easily imagine folks managing not to really get its message (thanks to their blinders and inner mental walls), but if you do, if you try hard enough, you may come to view our world through new eyes and grasp the insanity of our established and institutionalized cultures and customs, and the huge looming vacuum of stuff we should do, should have done, but haven’t. I am reluctant to share it because of the potential pain and the potential mind-blocks raised against grasping the understanding that takes the blinders off. Still… if one person does have the click happen in his or her brain, it may lead to some reasonable actions. So, with hesitance, here it is:

Hope for a Coronavirus-Stimulated Revolution

(Note: the Video Weekends are currently stalled because of my relocation — in the worst case this blog may pause for some weeks while I lack both time and Internet access)

While the current pandemic is being used by the robber billionaires and their political puppets to steal from us what little we have left, some folks point out that this catastrophe can be a perfect situation for us, the people, to revolt and make our world better, as other nationwide or global catastrophes have historically often done. Catastrophes pull people out of their comfort zone and push them over the edge. Some folks even seem to be sure this is going to happen now, even globally.

This would be great, but I frankly am not at all sure the current pandemic is igniting a global revolution, as much as I wish for it. While the U.S. is getting badly mauled by the pandemic and the rich oligarchs are using it as an opportunity to claw away from us the remaining crumbs left after generations of continued stealing from us, most other countries’ governments are actually performing a lot better in protecting their populations, not only from the virus but also the tragic loss of income and housing. So, it seems to me that it is OUR country that should respond with a revolution, and if it did so, it could lead other parts of the world that way like it did in the past.

But, after having been brainwashed for generations, can we still pull this off? I wonder. I hope but wonder. At the very least, I think this will require grassroots activists to get it started, not through violence, but by organizing crisis management at the bottom and thereby connecting us with each other and teaching the large bottom that we must rise and topple the top and shift from the current sociopathic exploitation culture to an egalitarian one of No Rich and No Poor, No Lies or Violence to control and enslave others, no more ignoring of nature’s challenges or fellow people’s suffering, and following the overarching principle of a Good Life for All.

We need a mentality change. And it won’t happen by itself. So, everybody craving for a better world, play your part.
