“The point of philosophy (today) fails us to inspire amelioration or grant fulfillment 2*”©

(*2 is still a blend of politics and some of what I’d call religiousness; whereas 3 will be devoted to a Christian perspective only.)

 

Fallow is shallow
and it defrays life itself
of lasting, Press On!

 

Philosophy and philosophers the world over throughout history have offered up a manner of thinking to live a life inclusive to improvement (concerned with life itself). If this was remotely true, reasoning would become more prominent in all our lives… and efforts to become more reasonable, exercising soundness in practice and application to our lives, should be seen more frequently. This is not the case here in the world we live in today! The biggest issue is is discernment being used, and what axis does it pivot from or turn toward? Is it God centered or mankind oriented… and to what end or goal is the thought then to concentrate on?

 

 

As an example, most of ’Social Media’ is against what Trump said in his UN speech. I happen to know one group that was exceptionally proud of Trump… and sees it as a means of renewed American pride- read more here. There is a large group of people that do not see it this way, covered by a Christian Science Monitor article here. In today’s world we have many referring to,”By any means necessary”, and it has become a means to an end but I ask,”The end of what?” The end of reasoning (diplomacy or logical discussion) is quickly upon us when people would rather resort to violence as a means to: gain your attention, command your actions from what you were doing… now forced to react to them, to cause dissension and terrorize, or to comply with religious dogma/doctrine… and to do such a thing without regard for the safety of people in the way.

 

I can remember something I thought was peculiar at the time I heard it. Strangely enough, it was something heard at the funeral for Mohammad Ali, spoken by Ambassador Attallah Shabazz, Malcolm X’s daughter. You can read her words here, and see a brief abstract below…

 

“My dad would often state when concluding or parting from one another: “May we meet again in the light of understanding.” And I say to you with the light of that compass, by any means necessary.”

 

Curiously, it is ‘Antifa’ that relies on local groups like ‘By Any Means Necessary (BAMN)’ to engage people in direct action. The influence and connections by nexus of Russian thought and Muslim extremists is unlike any coalition seen by humanity before. See one disturbing (at least it should be) video at this link (or below), a documentary called,”Soviet Islam”, is viewable at that site (or here).

 

 

 

ab inconvenienti… Latin for ‘from an inconvenient thing’. An argumentum ab inconvenienti is one based on the difficulties involved in pursuing a line of reasoning, and thus a form of appeal to consequences. The phrase refers to the legal principle that an argument from inconvenience has great weight.

 

 

 

When it comes to what philosophy has given us, the thoughts used to state a belief in support of what we might align ourselves with or to, just what is it “Philosophy” has given us but support for pluralism- a way traveled to be farther from God than mankind was ever meant to be.

What good did it do for philosophers to point out things humanity needs, as in past history, when ‘Absurdists’ would mock what prevails in thought or thinking it laughable today? Morals spoken of by Plato and defined by Aristotle now openly mocked, despised or denied credibility or validity; which actually speaks more to the perceptions used than the reality seen on the horizon of humanity. To parse words, actions or expectations about the affect of our own actions and deny the effects on our reality is to literally stick your head in the sands… a variation to,”I will see it only as I want to… or am willing to- or it doesn’t exist”.  An example of such a thing, politically, is just below…

 

 

If unwillingness is part the current position philosophers are advocating, in their philosophy of choice (Du jour), we will definitely see more absurdity in present life abounding… being lauded after as a reasonable expectation. All this does is make it that much more absurd and the masses are buying in and stocking up! To hell with the Greeks… give us Caligula! When perceptions can be honed to laser accuracy but dull to discount or slight the panoply of the peripheral or panoramic view we need to live a life inclusive to improvement (concerned with life itself)- we’d squander the opportunity to change the viewpoints we have grown to suffer with and become unfamiliar with regard or foresight (conditioned by/inured) to the damage it can cause.

Is this to be the future viewpoint of ‘LinkedIn’ as well?

 

The cartoon comes from this site… https://www.cartoonmovement.com/cartoon/37366 [the cartoonist is Amorim, from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil] as we might festoon a cartoon to lampoon absurdity, by showing absurdity for what it has become to the perception of some.

“A 9-11 testimony worth watching”©

1 Comment

 

Yesterday made 16 years since the event of Sept. 11th, 2001! This one day one the world stage still rings in our ears… our hearts, our minds and determination set in the stone of our memory. Hear but one man’s life story, his testimony, on what happened to him (called experiential) directly. This is worth taking the time, a precious commodity these days, to watch… heart touching and soul awakening. See below…

“Why fan the flames of indifference… unless you want them to continue to burn?”©

Leave a comment

This was from Matthew but the storms of life will hit us all!

 

Hit pieces, like articles by Kenneth T. Walsh, U.S. News & World Report, fan the flames of indifference. When tolerance gets changed to intolerance of hate but those who would scream of the outrage (and act upon it) see neither their own indifference as ‘hate’ nor the wedge being used by those seeking to keep us apart- this is the embodiment of indifference. This is being fueled by what I would termthe alt-left’ and it is being done to cause all Americans to be played… to be prey to our own undoing. A view to what I’m talking about, then and now, and seen respectively. See below…

There is no ‘revival’ to indifference, unless you look how long it took to see Obama get to Ferguson (Jefferson County), Missouri, or who rioted after the election!

“What now Linda?”©

Someone please tell me that Linda Sarsour did not try to exploit victims of hurricane Harvey? Please tell me why the silence from the left… over Antifa as well? Here is but my view, one view, to a show-and-tell to turn your stomach! See below…

 

 

Then she tried to divert money to PAC groups… instead of victims.

 

Madonna performs on stage during the Women’s March rally, Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017, in Washington. Madonna, Julia Roberts, Scarlett Johansson, Cher, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry, Emma Watson, Amy Schumer, Jake Gyllenhaal and feminist leader Gloria Steinem were just some of those Hollywood A-list celebrities in attendance at the march in Washington. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana) Some may not have had a change of heart in their positional stance because of the exploitation… so how about you?

 

 

 

Linda got caught in the lies, just like Hillary did, and now… we can wonder why she isn’t either deported or behind bars! Someone like her… that doesn’t hate at all.

Race, the only race Americans should see in the US
is the race to bring her down, divide and conquer!
Being divided makes it so much easier to throw fuel
on the fires of indignation, of rage, then… no succor
or sympathy would be felt by those allowing us to do
their work for them, since we would have done it for
the wrong reasons: the past (unchanged unless it is
remembered), difference (aren’t we all different?), lore
(A myth… the mythos of ethnocentric unresolved rage)
or intolerance (an unwillingness to accept another’s view).
Isn’t intolerance the same as being bigoted? So what do
we seek to gain by grasping it… do we even have a clue?
If the reason for hating something has past… let sleeping
Dogs lie still! Why feel the need to open old wounds by call…
If we have learned nothing from our past, why the outrage?
I know one thing to be certain… without you I will surely fall!

If there is but one ‘red flag’ to come from this it would be the use of the words to ‘Stand Down’.

For months now… all we have heard from the left is the push for ‘The Russian connection’ but nothing has come to light. Why the distraction to nonsense if there is no connection, never was… and never will be? I think it was used as a ploy… disturbingly, ‘a bare naked lieto distance themselves from obvious connections the left had, prior to the election, exposing the hypocrisy of their own search for a soul- if they have one still intact. The shame comes from using: the media to disseminate the distraction, those on the left (Americans also… the public) for believing it, and those in control of the party for attempting ‘the duping’ of world opinion. This reads more like a soap opera than it does real life.

 

 

The Russian Attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya was not (first) seen with Trump Jr. here… in 2016, she was first seen with… Hillary, Obama’s DOJ (under Loretta Lynch) and the outing of a spy (or just a concerned Russian citizen [?])-and the ‘Russian connection’ goes far beyond the ‘whole memory hole’ of the DNC or unwillingness shown (still) by most Democrats today!
