Then why is it so difficult for so many people to accept? Think about it. How many people around you right now buy into the whole "us or them" mentality...go ahead, count, I'll wait.
More than you may have suspected...some of them may even be related to you. Scary huh? No, not really. Most people just take what their given, you know, the P word...no not penis...PROPAGANDA!!!!!
Yup, it's out there all the time, as deadly as the black plague and twice as fast. It's insidious too. Sometimes you don't even realize that you're a victim of it until it's too late and you've already downed that can of diet soda and that hydrogenated burger from (fill in any fast food corporation here)...and that's just the fairly harmless kind of mind gymnastics.
The really dangerous stuff is when nationalism and patriotism are subverted for evil...you know, control the masses with fear and nationalism, find a scapegoat...if at this point you're scratching your heads and considering 'unfollowing' us on Twitter because I sound like a kook, read Orwells 1984 or go and read a little about what Hermann Goering had to say about how to control the masses...go ahead, I'll wait.
Pretty wild stuff, right...no not really, I mean it's crazy but it's being used, to make you believe that we need someone to blame, to hate, to fear...and while you're hating, fearing and blaming this, other group, the powers that be figure out ways to make money on it, on you, on your fear, your hatred and your blame.
That is what our story is really about. We are all human beings on this earth. Most of us are kind, loving people. Parents, children, mothers, husbands, brothers and sisters just trying to make a good life for ourselves and those that we care about and love. Yes, there are a few out there that are evil, I don't doubt it, but the majority are just common folk, making our way through our lives the best way we can.
We all need to learn this now. We need to stop paying attention to the powers that are subverting our way of life to pad their own bank accounts. That are attempting to buy and sell us as commodities. We all deserve to live in peace with each other. Until we all accept that the guy down the block, or on the other side of the world is EXACTLY like us...or sure, they may look a little different, or eat a different kind of food than you and they may even pray a little different than you, but they are you...time to just wrap our heads around it...we are all brothers and sisters on this muddy little ball...thanks for listening to me rant...but I wouldn't rant if I didn't believe it with all of my heart and I didn't think it was time we opened up to it...I'm just the messenger folks...one of many.
