A lot is going on out here…and it isn’t all good. I’m not talking about the yiddish hand either.
What I want to address is the infighting among us.
Jeff Rense is the latest to be outed. Before him it was Mike Rivero. Before him it was Alex Jones. Before him it was David Duke. Before him it was Henry Makow. Before him it was Amy Goodman. Before her it was Noam Chomsky. Before him it was David Icke. And on and on…ad vomitorium. I am leaving out hundreds of such squabbles. This doesn’t even address the little lists that we all personally keep…just the ones that are published out here.
Maybe someone should keep a running list, that we can all check before we surf. Or…
Perhaps we should examine this whole thing a bit more deeply. Trust. My mother once told me “never trust anyone. Not even me.”
On the surface that seems harsh. And it is, if you view trust as an intrinsically good thing. But if you view it as it should be seen, it only makes sense…or rense…whichever the case may be. Trust is a human frailty. Trust is giving part of yourself to another human. You are making a closed door contract with someone that, in most cases, you have no idea about their full mental processes. It is the zenith of intellectual laziness. You are giving another flawed human the right to somehow become part of you. To speak for you. You entrust a part of your personality to reside in this other person, so it’s a small wonder that if they don’t behave entirely in the fashion that you wish, you are crushed. You are angry. You feel betrayed and taken advantage of. But who is to blame? There is a lot of talk out here about “sheeple”. Helllllooooo? ” Pot, I would like you to meet kettle”.
This may sound a little psychobabbly, but to me it is just a fact of life. It’s that old “fool me once, shame on you…” thingy. But a step further.
There is nothing wrong with the fact that you can align with another human’s views. But that is an entirely external process. If two lines in space(not to get too algebraic) are parallel, then they are. They are not forced to be. They just are…until they are not. Q.E.D.
Jeff Rense cannot MAKE you believe that there is a world-wide Muslim threat. David Icke cannot MAKE you believe that the head gal in England is actually a shape-shifting lizard Queen from outer space. Mike Rivero cannot MAKE you believe that Obama is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Amy Goodman cannot MAKE you believe that the USA is a democracy. Henry Makow cannot MAKE you believe in Illuminati-Freemason plots…and on and on.
You make these decisions. These blogger “gods” cannot hide any evil agendas from you, when all they have to communicate with you is the written word. Can they? Either you agree with them on important issues, or you don’t. If you do, read them…don’t “follow”, or “trust” them. If you don’t…move on.
I guess I don’t like the anger. It is counterproductive and time/effort wasting. Especially this emotion directed at those that fail us… intentionally or otherwise.
Not trusting anyone but yourself( and even in that case, I know I cannot trust myself around a tall big-boobed woman) can seem cold and calculating, I understand. But when you think about the multifaceted thing that is the human psyche, you begin to understand that for even TWO of these weird beings to be entirely compatible(notwithstanding the trouble-and-strife) would be approaching the realms of astronomical improbability.
I know, you are saying to yourself…”but they are spreading lies and disinformation!”. So? Isn’t that what we are all fighting out here? Lies? Jeff is just another one. Move on. OR…don’t place so much hope in another human in the first place? Just keep battling for what YOU believe in. There are enough COMMON goals among us to filter out those seeking to dis-inform or to feed their preening egos.
But for the record again…and so you will never feel “betrayed” by me or my site…I hold the following, to be truths from which I will not retreat, nor or be dissuaded:
*All jews are not evil; but behind most evil, you will find a jew(thanks Chucky).
*All religion, along with war and history…is bunk.
*I believe in me…only…and even then, I have doubts.
*I do not believe in divine intervention…for good or bad.
*I like old movies. Especially Ingmar Bergman’s.
But never TRUST me.
