“The point of philosophy (today) fails us to inspire amelioration or grant fulfillment 3*”©

6 Comments

(*… 1 is from a contemporary perspective, narrative, 2 will be a blend of politics and religiousness, 3 has to do with philology [thoughts on thinking… and the use of philosophy] and current events [the Las Vegas shooting], and 4 will be limited to a Christian perspective only.)

 

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

 

When it comes to what the Greeks valued most, it would seem, it would be philosophy (that which told you what one was engaged with in any particular endeavor) but more than this was philology itself- ‘The love of learning’. Philosophy was used to define the nature of the world in which they lived in a secular fashion- without being religious in nature1️⃣. This was the beginning of what many might hold as ‘the building blocks leading to science itself’. From Thales of Miletus, Anaximander… through Plato, Aristotle and Socrates, whatever was discussed was based on ‘reason’ to substantiate it. Even reason was under heavy scrutiny, as by Xenophanes, ridiculing the notion of different nationalities maintaining ethnocentric views to either anthropomorphism or personification of natural phenomena to gods of their own choice. This led to Epicurus and the developement of a complete separation between science and religion as a whole. Pythagoras sought to keep them as combined thoughts, both religious beliefs and reason being of equal importance, forming the symbiotic relationship of one to the other.

 

1… This is known today as Secular humanism; which pertains to the belief humanity is capable of being moral and can achieve self-fulfillment without belief in God.

 

Philosophy thus defined: the reasons people did what they did, why they did it (not as if to justify their actions), and became the methodology (unconcerned with any solutions to social issues) used and associated to whatever one studied or practiced- without regard to any specific religion or god directly. Every facet of Greek life incorporated a reason for the behavior of participation, and the reason was explained by the philosophy of each endeavor, from neophyte to alum. Please look under Ancient Greek Philosophy found here, or here with Ancient History Encyclopedia, on Greek Philosophy… affording a clear view of what is referenced to and why! On the last link, pay attention to the very start of it, or the first three (brief) sentences.

 

Take for example the convergence of philosophies that come to together when there is something that gains the attention of all people- like the Las Vegas shooting. To date, this is one of the largest death tolls, an ‘active shooter event’, and everyone jumps on the bandwagon for various reasons (philosophy at work… being applied). Two of the first few to come into view on this event were ISIS and Hillary- oddly enough. ISIS claimed responsibility, calling Paddock “a soldier of the Islamic State” but the FBI has discarded the reported details as stated. As for Hillary, after a brief ’tweet’ of support for those who lost loved ones, she went to the heart of what she stood for…

 

[What is seen below comes from https://finance.yahoo.com/news/hillary-clinton-goes-nra-response-144612934.html ]

 

In a series of follow-up tweets, Clinton wrote that the country “must put politics aside” and “stand up to the NRA,” specifically citing the organization’s stance on gun silencers.

 

My question is ‘how can we put politics aside’ when the one, coming from the losing party, continues to seek her own ‘Agenda (21)’ first?

 

 

Professors are making absurd claims (presenting personal philosophy over curriculum) regardless to truth or reality of the situation, innocent people losing their lives attending an ‘American Musical venue’. This is not then a philosophy… but a philosophy driven push to alter one’s mind from the thoughts we might have- the ability to think for ourselves instead of being spoon-fed what to think! See below…

 

[Below an abstract of a professor(?) at Drexel University.]

 

“But liberals will drown out all discourse with a deafening chorus screeching ‘gun control.’ To believe that someone who would shoot down 50 people wouldn’t circumvent any gun law you pass is the height of delusion. The narrative of white victimization has been gradually built over the past 40 years. It is the spinal column of Trumpism, and most extreme form is the white genocide myth. Yesterday was a morbid symptom of what happens… ”

 

Then the formation of what happens with further reason for Paddock possibly dealing with depression- and the use of anti-depressants. From an article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal online. See below… an abstract.

 

” …was prescribed an anti-anxiety drug in June that can lead to aggressive behavior, the Las Vegas Review-Journal has learned.”

 

Even to lead us all on is ’the Fake-News’ News articles portraying a less than realistic covering of ‘real humans caught in the worst of situations’ and concerned more with where they might spin it. Really! Is this what we term Social Media or ‘Unsocial Media’? Shame on you… Facebook, Twitter and Google! Is it true… what I’ll continue to go on thinking in the future!

 

[A brief snippet… an abstract on ‘conditions’ the public was placed under.]

 

“… Facebook and Google users would have seen these fake Vegas stories right next to legitimate reports from major news organizations.”

 

This was ‘a human story’ being mutilated for political interests in points elsewhere but on the issues that truly mattered: innocents injured or killed, a sad plight by large area and those in attendance trapped, when cornered a suicide… and left with no explanation. All we have to go on is the strength of statistics used to carry a ‘burden of (possibility) speculation… the why it was done’ and to be there for all of those people having survived the experience of one man’s madness– philosophy gone wrong.

 

95% of people who complete suicide have a diagnosable psychiatric illness at the time of death, according to the Journal of American Medical Association. Understanding that depression is the leading cause of suicide, that mental health issues are behind more than 90% of lethal suicidal acts, is critically important for suicide prevention.

 

Where is hope seen… offered by the philosophies of so many- where is fulfillment found?

“Let’s sit-in on truth”

6 Comments

The snubbing of Israel, at the recent UN
vote, will assist the US and Israel into war…
this is no little action, it is more of the same
‘leading from behind’ mentality, the chore,
which is stemming from a deplorable reason…
the reasoning of belief over our own country,
a cheapening of American values and manner
of life as we know it, a barometer of sociometry,
for from it comes the divisive views of alienation…
isolating nature of being separated from oneness
of what it means to be an American, a part of the
whole group or grouping, devoid of our happiness,
purposeful in the characteristic denying the motto
of ‘togetherness’ for a palmed off version inverted;
ergo, to proclaim this as our ‘core’ of who and what
we would become… our past is suddenly reinvented
and a synthesis… clearly ‘white washed’ from our
beginnings (far removed) of independence trained,
we stand for anything without our support offered to
an ally, if we become the enemy… what is gained?

 

Remember the ‘Democratic sit-ins’ protesting guns and the use of them? Is this the actions of one so inclined to think the same? Take a good look at whom is on the list of those receiving a Presidential pardon… and come to draw your own conclusions! To deny action (by actually voting) to a country we have called an ally (historically) and to engage in actions to make a mockery of your own party (the Democratic Party… after this [seen below]) is truly a deplorable act.

 

janus-the-roman-god

Janus the Roman god… and the ‘two faces’ representing beginning and ending, as for a new year.

 

 

 
To see what is going on in Israel is to clearly look at why the debate rages on about thoughts of peaceful coexistence (settlements)… the land turned over by the UN in 1948. Israel called this ‘the Promised land’ at the time they left Egypt and their bondage… a covenant made by God to and for His chosen people.

Can we not understand this as: an unprecedented action, a raised fist or as disturbing as kneeling (instead of being something you are proud enough of to stand for) during the National Anthem. For this Veteran… this is unconscionable and points to dire times ahead for both nations.

 

For the Nation of Israel, this is tantamount to turning our back on her… to inspire or offer solace and assistance to those who desire to: impugn, hurt, harm or destroy thoughts of who and what she represents- a Nation under the covenant of the living God. Next will come an open door (a gift by not supporting Israel) by which will be shown, through narrow perception, how there have been (possible) war crimes committed or to declare Israel is practicing an ‘Apartheid-like’ governance of the West Bank.

 

What is not said, or stated (openly), is the amount of attacks on the citizens of Israel (which have increased) have helped to create the very: restrictions, limitations to access, stronger security measures and aggressive measures taken to ensure protection for their own safety and preservation of their own sovereign state.

 

Is this not more of the ‘God bless you Planned Parenthood’… but what about ‘God blessing the land and His chosen people’ as well?

 

“A captive nonetheless”

Leave a comment

There are many furrows which cross the brow,
even when staid conventions are kept captive,
from thoughts removed of the surly depths to
collaborate with collusion’s goal of preemptive
and arbitrary release of soundness and logic…
from thence to feel no sense of consequence,
stolen from the hands of those deceived and
would believe freedom is without a reference,
whence the beginning of freedom is relegated
to being quaint and obsolete, fought for the gain
to attain liberty by loss of lives and blood, fought
tyranny to arrive at peace and quiet without pain,
the pathology of a dyed in the wool liar… paved
with immunity render the liability to sell the whore,
and the whoring… the selling of one’s own body
and lifestyle to suit what another needs from more
of you, to turn from being an individual with choice
to a person with no: voice, morals or clear thought
to what we have been or what we have become…
and we’d be nothing more than clones as taught
to such vapid melodies of rhythm and ceaseless
noise… barely leaving images of color and life,
doomed to repeat this ‘hamster wheel existence’
without realizing its cause and effect is our strife.

 

Twenty years of politics as usual... far from it!

This is not a land of eagles when we want to see things… as we want to see things!

 

To realize there are many that have voiced their opinions about Trump winning the election, even their displeasure of the electoral college going along with it, but,”That’s democracy Baby! Yeah!” One side wins and the other loses… I wonder if Ruth Bader Ginsburg is still planning on moving- I’ll miss her. If Hillary would have been elected (more of the same), do you think she would have kept the Science Czar we currently have (under a Democrat)? Here is a little of what he is all about… UN policy gone AMOK!

I didn’t like it when Bush Jr. was voted in but this is still my country of choice.

Before leaving the Oval Office, at the the White House,
the lame-duck of a President would fill our stockings…
so that we might cower in the thought of 15 to 25
percent of the Muslims we’d see do their stalkings,
If it is true 15 to 25 percent of Muslims are extremists
then exactly what amount of the imported are ready
to exact extremist views, to do the dirty work like the
suicide squads they really are… lose your own heady
in the details of such a Christmas gift, a UN un-care
Package slighting our borders capacity to its chore…
a seasonal mix of mistletoe and gunpowder, just like in
Florida… the Pulse, license to act on hate some more.

Just when America thinks it has seen the last of the underhandedness coming from in the White House, a whiff of this is like ‘smelling salts’ to someone thinking everything has been rosy indeed. If ‘homegrown terrorists’ aren’t bad enough to curl your toes… do you think you’d sooner forget what happened in San Bernardino too? Compliments of your friendly neighborhood peace-loving POTUS Obama.

 

“Cry not for what we have become”

3 Comments

What has come of my own party,
the party of the people in our home?
Do they not want to believe in truth…
forced to grasp opinions spun by game
or pointed away, distracted, so easily…
thinking no harm would come together,
from the mind without change turned
the geo-political ideology to forgather
sympathies for international causes over
our own, now faceless, and unknown…
decided to lead us from what we are,
Americans, to world citizens who yawn
from disbelief others would think any
different than the way they’d see fitting
but if truth is becoming of the list or of
bias is to try standing as we’re falling.

 

 
We have shed more concern… exerted more blood, sweat and tears for false hopes and unrealistic expectations- listened to political promises never intended to be followed through on. Recently, Hillary lost the election… and it would seem Americans forgot: American lives were lost in Benghazi and after the DNC subpoenas, emails were never intended for sending ‘Classified’ material… least of all with open access to maids and aids, assisting international causes over American laws… even to render American freedoms null and void, and ’lying’ has never been an honorable thing to do- especially when found out to be a regularity… by a Presidential hopeful.

 

 

 

There have been many times in human history lies have worked… even worked well but when they have been exposed as lies- seldom have they become viable to concerned efforts of anyone wishing for good things to come from them. If you can think of a time when blatant outright lies are a benefit… let’s hear your side of the story! One can have their own opinion but cannot have their own facts- tertium non datur [no third (possibility) is given] a logical axiom that a claim is either true or false, with no third option.

 

 

 

President Obama spoke about Trump’s victory… and even to speak of ‘core values’ shared. I see this as the front side… but not the back side or the down-side.

 

 

 

 

If it was not true Hillary acted, at the State Department, with President Obama’s consent to what she did there… why would her own people come out with the same priorities being spoken of or stated as fact. If there is any one thing which needs to haunt Hillary, and the American public that (actually) voted for her, it would be,”Fly over country, where undesirables live, can tell the difference between horse shit and bull shit!” How it is playing in China… just a new American soap opera called,”As the stomach churns.”

“Universal appeal of the dead”©

The patterns appear quite jumbled…
mixed up when winds blow the sand
in the environment, endemic yet so
intrinsic and aid in slight of the hand…
of mind… what was told to believe by
one assumed to be as dazzling light,
the human life so dim… so bleak, and
what was told to write by one so bright,
to want what God has… what God is…
this is by an eternal hunger unfulfilled
in time immemorial, we supposed God’s
own chosen would not be indwelt…
imbibed with the words of the book;
hence, they are the people of the Book,
keepers of the breath of God… for it
is His will to be done, not pawn or rook
in a political gambit of words, in a seen
and unseen world, cleft now in soul…
to deceive the masses with lies and his
deceptions from Jesus, wretched goal
from the great fall to desire to pull us all
down, as many as he will and can reach,
to be so arrogant and boastful in singular
pursuit, to train disobedience and teach
those whom will believe as he has shared
with… gathered from the very sands of time,
there was a promise told them about once…
spoken to another, deceit is then his crime.

This life can cause us to be fearful and it might be as confusing (sometimes) as looking in a kaleidoscope but as unpredictable as it may seem, especially with geopolitical influence, it is God that remains the constant- fixed and unchanging… either in His love or (if we oppose Him) in His anger. If you abide in His love He will abide with you. If you oppose Him… He will give you over to your own desires but know when this happens,”Your heaven (or good times) will be found only on this Earth.” Eternity is the goal and not the temporary gain this life speaks out for… yells out for and even demands.

To understand the vitriol one must acknowledge where it begins… in the US- this one article addresses the core of the issues. I do hope you’d realize ‘Islamophobic’ is a coined phrase… one created to ensure anyone speaking out would be labeled by it (shut down) and to give rise to the nature of its use as being the closest thing to reason for ‘political correctness’ in the first place.

See what an investigative project uncovered about: CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), Hamas, IAP (Islamic Association of Palestine) and the HLF (Holy Land Foundation) here, and please note it is a very lengthly PDF which gives rise to counter disinformation claimed by those investigated. Sources are clearly listed: FBI, CNN, PBS, Associated Press, New York Times, Cox News Service, Forbes magazine, News Corp. (parent company for the Fox News Channel, headed by Rupert Murdoch) and many others. CAIR has been known to be aided by the US State Department, see below…

 

Similar to its UAE presentation, CAIR cited its cooperation with U.S. State Department officials such as Secretary Rice and Undersecretary Hughes.

By attempting to hide/omit/purge/remove any who question any religion… I show you a religion we should most question- a fearful religion based on fear would also be afraid of the truth.

Recently, the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) was aided by ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, passage of UN Resolution 16/18 received the same type of help.

23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

 

Below is found here [under Matthew Henry Commentary for 1 John 2:23… nearest the bottom] in an abstract- and food for eternal thought.

 

The great and most hurtful lies that the father of lies spreads in the world, usually are falsehoods and errors relating to the person of Christ.

Proof we need to pray for: all humanity (Brothers and Sisters are we all), revival of the spirit of hope and love, and for strength to return to those in Israel- the Nation for the people of the living God. God does care for all people but He loves His own most of all, and those that have made the conscious choice to seek out the God of eternal peace- the Hebrew God.

Faint the heart prone to despair…
when expectation disappears,
as though an outcome assumed
evaporates… left to all our fears.
Is this not the same as when facts
found out about differ from belief…
fed one thing, not the truth, and
so the truth left us bears not relief,
in the time passed… Black Death a
base for religious and social endemic…
then a biological pandemic, this time
it is to the mind… a view so epidemic.

 

The sweeping change of plague born infection [1346-1353], called the “Great Plague,” stole life and lives of many. There comes another time of such condition [a veritable parallel¹], or conditioning of mind, a time of certain spiritual condition… when the notion of an idea being corrupted (subjected to different views or beliefs) will be justifiable reason for termination of the source of objection. There will be no light found in the darkness of deeds or actions done to preserve such an appearance of purity- spiritual contagion is what kills life, life eternal or value to life in any form.

 
1… there are many profound parallels found throughout history and one (of many) is the reference to ‘Black Death,’ and this is not intended as a racial slight or a racial motivated comment of any kind.

 

 

the-black-flags-of-prophecy

 

 

Hillary just lost the US election… and her aid (support, assistance) offered the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) to help them pass UN Resolution 16/18 may have been a contributor to her loss. Is this the same togetherness she spoke of… during her campaign, as if it would be a benefit to women (See below)? If this is to be used in the US over US Law… she will deserve no pardon (and I half expect one will be offered for her and Comey both) for violating US Laws as she has. She will deserve no sympathy for her loss and no tears shall fall from this Democrat’s eyes. I value the flag we have already!

This makes me wonder if she has a clear picture of what she says she values!

 

 

[Below is an abstract taken from here, an article on ‘Women in Islam,’ through Wikipedia. Please look down to Modern secular education… and then ask yourself,”How is secular thought coming from: a religious faith, Islamic cooperation or spoken of through a theocracy? Then look to Female Employment… and find this,”Traditional interpretations of Islam require a woman to have her husband’s permission to leave the house and take up employment.” Listed below that is ‘History,’ and it eludes to ‘equality of men and women’ in all respects.]

 
The 2012 World Economic Forum annual gender gap study finds the 17 out of 18 worst performing nations, out of a total of 135 nations, are the following members of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation: Algeria, Jordan, Lebanon, (Nepal[52]), Turkey, Oman, Egypt, Iran, Mali, Morocco, Côte d’Ivoire, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Chad, Pakistan and Yemen.
