Political Observations IN This Blog Are Ending
This is the last week of this blog. Much of the content over the past year has been political in nature, for as a healer, I have begun to see how the wrong political conditions contribute to illness. I had the sense that speaking truth, as I saw it, about difficult issues, might make a difference in the world. I have concluded that it can't. The misguided forces that are driving the world forward are much too great for a blog by an old man to deflect toward doing the right thing. There just can be no good in governance by people, who under law, are felons. We as a country have lost our integrity. We as a country have lost our honor. And in that loss we have become criminals in not taking up difficult issues. The ability to rule is lost in the corruption. The ability to solve problems is lost in the corruption. The ability to do the simple right thing is lost in the corruption. When I was young, I was impressed by the Plebe Handbook, a little volume I got while visiting West Point. The words it held were something about choosing the more difficult right rather than the easier wrong. The words were something about honor. The words were something about speaking truth and having integrity. I am glad that I tried to remind misguided people that there is something wrong in following that tempting misguided path of compromised integrity. I am glad to have seen power of the misguided in moments of my analysis. I am glad to have come up with some sense of who is running the world and how. It is my belief that the efforts toward socialism for corporate losses and privatization of corporate profits will bring all to a bad end. It is my belief that much misguided results comes from covert action and intention. Rule by the covert is ultimately more destructive than atomic warfare. Thousands have been hurt and corrupted by governance by covert action. This process harms all concerned, those governed by these actions and those driven to practice covert rule. The loss of integrity makes a person blind to reality and being blind to reality is an impossible place from which to rule. I have made my contribution toward getting things right. Now is the time for me to attend to small and interesting projects. The human energy field needs to be imaged and a science of energetic interactions needs to be documented and studied. In one week's time I will hit the delete post button on all political comments. Moving forward.
