Assassination of the American Family Unit.

Image

The smallest unit of Government should be the family unit.  What happens when no fault divorce allows the woman to hi jack the marriage and make marriage about her needs, wants, desires, and judgments?  The family unit dissolves leaving every individual in the family exposed to the corporations so that they can extract the maximum amount of profit from every individual in the family.

Since the 1950’s you have been bombarded with propaganda and narrative that besmirch, distort, humiliate, and ridicule the american family head.

Who does this create value for?  (deconstructing for value) It creates value for corporations trying to indoctrinate people into a consumer life style of conspicuous consumption?  corporations.  The father of the family would say, no!  you can’t have a cell phone, you don’t need a cell phone, I don’t care if your classmates have a cell phone,  there is no need for a 12 year old girl to have a cell phone.   Furthermore, we can’t afford it.

When you are indoctrinating a society into the sklavmoral of debt spending, or credit spending, using their house that was sold to them with predatory lending tactics, and encouraging them to take out loans against it as a form of banking, that is sklavmoral.  http://terminclature.wordpress.com/2013/11/12/sklavmoral/

How did America get so stupid?  It was a war by corporations, against American Efficiency Experts, to increase the amount of consuming Americans do.  They don’t want efficency, they want waste, they want you to buy things you don’t want, with money you don’t have, to impress people you don’t like.

1 john 2:

Do Not Love the World

15Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.

Now I am a huge fan of Mr. Banana Hands, aka, Tony Robbins, ok, not a huge fan, but I think he is cool peeps.  Anyway he was the first person that introduced me to Kaizen which I immediately liked and adopted in my philosophy of ZenTao, but, the fact of the matter is that the Japanese learned this after we blew them up and felt bad so we sent the american efficiency experts over their to make things better.  They adopted our philosophy and used it to defeat our american auto dealers.

History[edit]

After WWII, to help restore Japan, American occupation forces brought in American experts to help with the rebuilding of Japanese industry while The Civil Communications Section (CCS) developed a Management Training Program that taught statistical control methods as part of the overall material. This course was developed and taught by Homer Sarasohn and Charles Protzman in 1949-50. Sarasohn recommended W. Edwards Deming for further training in Statistical Methods.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaizen#History

Now why was it that we couldn’t compete with the Japanese over here when they were using the philosophy that we taught them?  Because the corporations were trying to wag the dog, trying to upsell the american citizens products they didn’t need or want.

Now what is it exactly that the government looks like when it has an intact family unit?  There are Unions.  Unions make sure that you can have a family as a man, as a father, that you have protection so you can raise a family.  It means that you have a rational path to increase your value and position and you can’t be fired arbitrarily or forced to compete with unlicensed, uninsured, illegal,  immigrants.

Fascinating little tid bit the word Soviet in USSR is synonymous with Union.  Maybe that is why it was so important for the neocons with their radical Reagonomics to try to destroy the Soviet Union?

And this is how the Neo Cons managed to get elected into office?  Let us take a look at that process for a minute.

George W. Bush shopped himself around while his daddy was president to companies engaged in illegitimate business practices.  Suggesting, I suspect that, his father couldn’t afford a scandal so any underhanded dealings they did would be swept under the table.  Remember that when W. became president he made it illegal to find out what his connection was to Enron.  Enron more or less sold “energy”.  Now remember if you will that Enron was destroyed on 9/11 in the attack on the World Trade Center where it was located.  Enron brokered the deal that sold “excess energy” from Texas to L.A. which was necessitated by the rolling black outs which caused lives and were found later to have been manufactured and a law suit was pending against, you guessed it, Enron.

George W. Bush was never supposed to be president, his father knew this, it was all Karl Rove’s fault and his weird, creepy attraction to Georgy that allowed it all to happen.  Jeb Bush was being groomed for president.  I am not a huge fan of Bush senior but the man was reasonable.  He didn’t fly in the face of reason, and he backed down when he saw his course of action was unwarranted.  It was so obvious to me when he broke down on stage that he was ashamed of his little pecker wood of a son, who was more like his horrible mother than himself in spite of his looks.  Only his father knew how horribly junior had fucked up the country and then selling our debt to the Chinese?  Junior had never had trouble not paying his debts or reneging on his deals, I assume that he thought the United States would do the same.  The very man that created more debt for the U.S. than any other president in history, that is his true legacy.  The man during whose term massive amounts of money disappeared over seas unaccounted for.

It reminds me of how in GODDESS OF THE MARKET, the author, Jennifer Burns talks about how Ayn Rand modeled two of her main characters after a  killer who kidnapped and dismembered a little girl.   If capitalism didn’t commit suicide in Ayn Rand’s time it certainly is doing so now.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeJuySjCL5g

Bohemian Dystopia, Critique on the State of the Nation.

Bohemian Dystopia: The Anne Ominous critique on the state of the nation

 

How did we get here? I look around every day and I think either I am getting smarter or everybody else is devolving. Since when does the largest group of idiots get to determine policy and what it means to be American? That is called tyranny of the majority and if we understand why our country was put together the way it was it was supposed to checkmate every form of tyranny. Tyranny is the anti-Christ of reason and wisdom from the perspective of the founding fathers but this isn’t just about ships of fools, I hate everything and everyone stupid equally….

You see we are effectively turning into a feudal society, we are already a fascist society and there are elements of communism creeping in as well, and not the positive aspects of it. The wise people are slaves and are worked to death while vile idiots enjoy the surplus of others work. How did this happen? How did we get here? and how the hell do we get back??? 

What you don’t get is that when George W. Bush was in office he passed a law that gives corporations the right of people. This effectively makes them citizens, they can defend themselves and they can endorse themselves and they can pursue their own interests. Is that a bad thing? Well, who do you think they are defending themselves from? That is correct, individuals. What this essentially means is that you have been demoted as a citizen, you are now a plebeian a non citizen by proxy, because you don’t have the man-power, the skill, the knowledge, the lawyers and the money that corporations have, but relax, it gets worse. 

Money is a symbol of value, and it is exchanged after it is decided from two different perspectives that the interaction is mutually beneficial. We have been using money so long we forget what it is. When people have ridiculous amounts of wealth it is no longer about survival it is about control and influence. In order to have a consumer society you have to have a dumb society that can be manipulated through advertising. Axe body spray is not selling cologne, they are selling sex. They conflate their product with the attention of women, young men want feminine attention so they participate with the premise and buy the product. But it incentivizes an irrational and stupid society. Wild animals are smarter than domesticated breeds, they are also dangerous. Our founding fathers wanted us to be dangerous and wild and intelligent. We have failed them.

If you look at the Jewish laws they were written with a single intent, the success of the village. Every 7 years their was a forgiving of debts that couldn’t be payed off. George W. Bush repealed a similar law that the united states had. What this means is that the rich will stay rich and the poor will stay poor and get even poorer. This moves even farther from a democracy into an oligarchy, but it does more than that, it means that if you have money, no matter how you got it, you are virtuous because you have it. Being rich is a virtue in itself now, which means that we are becoming a cleptocracy, the opposite of a meritocracy. Furthermore this prevents wealthy families from losing their positions of prestige and having to compete with other technologies and skills on a level playing field. It was because of fear of not being able to compete and not being able to regain their wealth and stature that provoked this law. 

Right to rule is determined by whether your government contributes to the quality of your life or not. If your life is the same as it would be if there were no government then that government does not have the right to rule. Now, if your government is based on capitalism and nobody has jobs or money, your government does not have the right to rule. Here is another interesting little tid bit. The jobs that we do have are government jobs. If you have a government job it is like you won the lottery, you are comparatively rich. How the fuck did that happen? How is it that civil SERVANTS, are getting paid more than the average American when their job is to make life better for the rest of Americans? There is no fucking way, they should be living high on the hog when they are failing at their job. 

Every major world civilization has had one thing in common, a large middle class…. I really shouldn’t have to write the rest of this paragraph, what I just said should be enough. Jewish laws were created to maintain equity in the population. A huge disparity in wealth dispersion means there is no middle class. In the parts of northern Europe that are successfully using a type of socialism there is a wage cap. No one can earn more than so many times the minimum wage. The hidden subject is that it prevents people from hijacking the society because they possess all of the wealth. People react with horror at that concept, but money is an external incentive, there are other types of incentives, internal incentives for example. We have gotten so indoctrinated into external incentives that we don’t do anything without money, or for any other reason than money. Moral courage, righteous indignation, the world we want to live in, just some examples of internal incentives….

Think of how much of your life is spent at work. You spend all of your best energy slaving away for a corporation and you have what is left over for your friends and family and interests, assuming of course that you actually have a job. You are a slave. Not in letter but in spirit. Your every thought, action, and emotion is manipulated by the people with the money, you only think that you are in control of your own destiny and that you have options, and that is because you were manipulated into thinking that. There are two types of freedom, freedom from and freedom too. Freedom from is a feminine freedom, it prevents relationship. It removes individuals from natural consequences, this is the freedom the mother provides for the child protecting it from nature, understanding of truths that are unpleasant, and keeping it from relationships that are undesired. This is an authoritative freedom that is provided by a superior to a subordinate, it requires that the child participate and stay in its box, remaining docile and dumb. Structures of authority give us received knowledge, they do our thinking for us, and they extract their authority from us in order to do it. It makes certain presuppositions, that the mother knows enough to protect the child, that the mother knows what is good for the child, and that the child can be happy being provided for. But this model weakens society by making it stupid, complacent, and domesticated. Pleasant, but douchey and incorrect.

 
 Furthermore, if you examine the mind of the psychopath, as I have, you realize that they are notorious social climbers, and they climb through structures of authority. It is said that “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely” but in my experience that is not true. A corrupt able person sees power where an incorruptible person sees responsibility, power can only be abused and the psychopath is attracted to it like a moth to a flame and like a fly to a piece of shit for the purpose of abusing that power. The incorruptible person reaches for responsibility slower than the psychopath reaches for power.
 
How is it that child molesters keep getting jobs where they can molest children and thieves keep getting jobs in banks and in the stock market and politics where they are allowed to regulate themselves? I have done some introspection on this subject. I have come to the conclusion that psychopaths are over-coddled children that learned how to manipulate their mothers. How do they do this? by communicating harmlessness and agreement to them, the mother does not promote foreign wills, (the father) she thinks only of feminine authority, (the child and the mother). She makes superficial, aesthetic, judgments, not judgments based on results or understanding or insight or experience. She wants smoke to be blown up her ass. She wants to be shmoozed. The psychopath wants the authority to be in tact so that he will have as much power as possible when he possesses the power so he will always argue for power even if it is against his wishes and everybody else’s. Because the child was over coddled by the mother, protected from reality, he has this feeling that he is better than others, innately superior, and incapable of doing wrong. Everything that he does is good because he is the one doing it. So some magical force makes all of his self interested strategic behavior harmless for the world and beneficent for himself. This happens on a subconscious level because being raised in a bubble that is all he experienced. Thank you mom.
 
 We live in the most feminine country in the world and no matter what happens women never take responsibility for the course of events. There is no hostile internal dialogue between American women and I do not trust any group of people that do not have a strong, open, internal dialogue. I don’t trust, Muslims, Mexicans, bankers, the stock market, I am sure there are others but I can’t remember who they are. . . .These lobbying organizations have spent decades silencing the masculine voice to the point where we are becoming a 3rd world country. We are too weak and stupid and dishonest to compete with the world anymore. Women presuppose the surplus created by men and their participation as well while not taking into account their desires, perspective, and happiness. Women are ruining our country just like they did ancient Rome.
 
 In order to unleash the highest common good, every person needs to be highly and equally educated. In Sparta, the person that was standing next to you in the phalanx, owned the farm next to you, and was voting against you on the same law in the senate. Our country was conceived with such men. That was when we were great. We are not allowed to be great like that anymore. Those men pooled their knowledge and wisdom, shared best processes, studied history, philosophy, learned about nature and how to succeed. When society is specialized, which happens in order to create profit, every person has a fractured, partial understanding, their language of experience doesn’t allow them to communicate understand or agree with the other person. the guy that puts the face on the cell phone doesn’t understand the guy that does the oil change. Just like in northern Europe and Israel, it should be mandatory for every person to spend two years in the military defending the country, because it is every Americans responsibility. Politicians would be less likely to send other peoples children to sacrifice themselves to fill their own wallets. On upon the end of their stint, they should be given a military rifle to put in their home. Don’t forget we are a nation, “of the people, by the people, and for the people”. Not of the corporations, by the people, and for the profit.
One of the tenets of communism was From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs “Jeder nach seinen Fähigkeiten, jedem nach seinen Bedürfnissen!” what this does is create a disparate impact in favor of those not capable of getting results in the real world. The capable work for the incapable, the philosopher kings work for the greedy children, and bitter widow. It creates a counter incentive for success. We are not free to, we are free from. Similarly, big business, the way we are practicing it, takes money out of the Oikos, the economy, and that money goes somewhere else. We are not keeping our money in our house. We are letting these corporate fiefdom harvest the fruit from our labor and dictate where it should go.
 
There are certain methods for increasing perceived value for the sake of extracting more profit. You can do more work, do it faster, lower the price, do it better, offer more support, more services, new technology, but the problem is that unlike ancient Sparta the person extracting the profit is not the person doing the work. The person extracting the work was promoted because he doesn’t harsh the buzz of his superior and because of a lack of sympathy for the person creating all the value making all the sacrifice. So this corporate douche bag, a glorified whip cracker, says, “DO THE JOB BETTER, FASTER, PAY MORE ATTENTION, BE NICE TO THE CUSTOMER, THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT, YOU NEED TO TAKE A PAY CUT!” and if you participate, that person turns around and puts down on his resume how successful he was and he gets a promotion and moves higher in the company so he can show less sympathy to more people and extract even more profit and have even less understanding.
 
I will leave you with a few quotes I have always found poignant:
 
 
 
 
 

I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country. Thomas Jefferson 

 
 

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.Thomas Jefferson 

 
 
 
 
Assuming that enough has been already said in discussions outside the school concerning the best life, we will now only repeat what is contained in them. Certainly no one will dispute the propriety of that partition of goods which separates them into three classes, viz., external goods, goods of the body, and goods of the soul, or deny that the happy man must have all three. For no one would maintain that he is happy who has not in him a particle of courage or temperance or justice or prudence, who is afraid of every insect which flutters past him, and will commit any crime, however great, in order to gratify his lust of meat or drink, whowill sacrifice his dearest friend for the sake of half-a-farthing, and is as feeble and false in mind as a child or a madman.
~ Aristotle
 
Now it is evident that the form of government is best in which every man, whoever he is, can act best and live happily. But even those who agree in thinking that the life of virtue is the most eligible raise a question, whether the life of business and politics is or is not moreeligible than one which is wholly independent of external goods, I mean than a contemplative life, which by some is maintained to be the only one worthy of a philosopher. For these two lives- the life of the philosopher and the life of the statesman- appear to have been preferred by those who have been most keen in the pursuit of virtue, both in our own and in other ages. Which is the better is a question of no small moment; for the wise man, like the wise state, will necessarily regulate his life according to the best end.
~ Aristotle
 
Those who make themselves a market for the world only do so for the sake of revenue, and if a state ought not to desire profit of this kind it ought not to have such an emporium. Nowadays we often see in countries and cities dockyards and harbors very conveniently placed outside the city, but not too far off; and they are kept in dependence by walls and similar fortifications. Cities thus situated manifestly reap the benefit of intercourse with their ports; and any harm which is likely to accrue may be easily guarded against by the laws, which will pronounce and determine who may hold communication with one another, and who may not.
~Aristotle
 
These are the services which every state may be said to need. For a state is not a mere aggregate of persons, but a union of them sufficing for the purposes of life; and if any of these things be wanting, it is as we maintain impossible that the community can be absolutely self-sufficing. A state then should be framed with a view to the fulfillment of these functions. There must be husbandmen to procure food, and artisans, and a warlike and a wealthy class, and priests, and judges to decide what is necessary and expedient.
~Aristotle
 
Now the soul of man is divided into two parts, one of which has a rational principle in itself, and the other, not having a rational principle in itself, is able to obey such a principle. And we call a man in any way good because he has the virtues of these two parts. In which of them the end is more likely to be found is no matter of doubt to those who adopt our division; for in the world both of nature and of art the inferior always exists for the sake of the better or superior, and the better or superior is that which has a rational principle.
~Aristotle
 
And the preference given to one or the other class of actions must necessarily be like the preference given to one or other part of the soul and its actions over the other; there must be war for the sake of peace, business for the sake of leisure, things useful and necessary for the sake of things honorable. All these points the statesman should keep in view when he frames his laws; he should consider the parts of the soul and their functions, and above all the better and the end; he should also remember the diversities of human lives and actions. For men must be able to engage in business and go to war, but leisure and peace are better; they must do what is necessary and indeed what is useful, but what is honorable is better. On such principles children and persons of every age which requires education should be trained. Whereas even the Hellenes of the present day who are reputed to be best governed, and the legislators who gave them their constitutions, do not appear to have framed their governments with a regard to the best end, or to have given them laws and education with a view to all the virtues, but in a vulgar spirit have fallen back on those which promised to be more useful and profitable.
~Aristotle
 
Neither should men study war with a view to the enslavement of those who do not deserve to be enslaved; but first of all they should provide against their own enslavement, and in the second place obtain empire for the good of the governed, and not for the sake of exercising a general despotism, and in the third place they should seek to be masters only over those who deserve to be slaves. Facts, as well as arguments, prove that the legislator should direct all his military and other measures to the provision of leisure and the establishment of peace. For most of these military states are safe only while they are at war, but fall when they have acquired their empire; like unused iron they lose their temper in time of peace. And for this the legislator is to blame, he never having taught them how to lead the life of peace.
~Aristotle

About Christopher Hitchens…..

“Since Hitchens evidently dosen’t take himself seriously, there’s no reason for anyone to…” Noam Chomsky

How many of you know that Noam Chomsky was the mentor to Christopher Hitchens?  I will say this about Hitchens, I respect him for his honest portrayal in “THE RIGHTS OF MAN” of Thomas Paine.  In a way Hitchens kind of falsifies his own perspective in describing the journey of Paine from vehement atheist to deist. Paine helped in the French Revolution and he was almost killed in the French Revolution by Atheists, he was saved by an accident as a matter of fact.  You see, Paine was sitting in his prison cell with the door open, the stupid person that was to mark the door for the order in which he was to be executed painted the number on the inside of the door, and then the door was closed later, since he was to be executed he might try to abscond, so it would be prudent to close the fucking door.  But when they started chopping off everyone’s heads they got to him and his door didn’t have a number and for some reason Thomas Paine, like the chicken shit he was didn’t tell him, “HEY GUISE, I AM NUMBER 13, ITS IN HERE IF YOU WANT TO SEE!”So the dickless wonder survived and came to the united states and realized that a modicrum of grace was needed in the American revolution, he blamed the godlessness of the atheists in France for the violence of the revolution over there and wanted to prevent a repeat in the good old United States.

Hitchens hints at a subject that I myself have discovered.  There is no way to use science to make a positive rational assertion for why human beings should have inalienable rights, likewise there is no way to use evolution to do the same.  In fact it is quite possible to use both to do the opposite.  The only way that you can make a positive rational assertion for why human beings should have inalienable rights is if you posit god in some form.  You have to assume some authority some universal law to which all people are beholding and then you can have human rights.

WE ARE ALL SLAVES…

This country isn’t failing, it has failed, the economy isn’t coming back.  There are a few things that have happened that have ensured that.  I came up with the term “hidden subjects”  because there are certain things said and done that are couched in rhetoric and people don’t really know what there significance is.  

No more debt forgiveness after 7 years.  This was taken from kosher law, the hidden subject of kosher law was to create an equal and sustainable society, where nobody got two rich and a large wealth gap was created between the citizens.  This was important because it was known then and it is known now that the single biggest factor in the impending collapse of an economy is a large discrepancy in the dispersion of the wealth. 

This law means that the rich will keep getting richer and the poor poorer.  This was also done to stack the deck in favor of old money and prevent new money from rising up and usurping their authority.  Psychopaths can’t compete on a level playing field, so the pay to have the playing field slanted in their favor.  After they harvest their crops they salt the field when they leave. It is also known as the tragedy of the commons.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tragedy_of_the_commons

Corporations are now citizens which mean that you and I are non-citizens.  They can defend themselves and their interests, from you if need be, but you do not have their resources, their man power, their man hours, or their lawyers.  So put that in your sling and fling it.  That’s right David, Goliath has your number.  When was the last time you heard of a corporation getting thrown in jail, or getting the death penalty?  

Right to rule is determined by whether the ruling government makes your life better than if it didn’t exist.  If you are still taxed by your government while enduring the war of all against all, they don’t have the right to rule.  When you live in an economy that has hitched its fate to capitalism and there are no jobs that are for gainful employment, that government doesn’t have the right to rule.  

 

In Leviathan, Hobbes set out his doctrine of the foundation of states and legitimate governments – originating social contract theory.Leviathan was written during the English Civil War; much of the book is occupied with demonstrating the necessity of a strong central authority to avoid the evil of discord and civil war.

Beginning from a mechanistic understanding of human beings and the passions, Hobbes postulates what life would be like without government, a condition which he calls the state of nature. In that state, each person would have a right, or license, to everything in the world. This, Hobbes argues, would lead to a “war of all against all” (bellum omnium contra omnes). The description contains what has been called one of the best known passages in English philosophy, which describes the natural state mankind would be in, were it not for political community: [14]

In such condition, there is no place for industry; because the fruit thereof is uncertain: and consequently no culture of the earth; no navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by sea; no commodious building; no instruments of moving, and removing, such things as require much force; no knowledge of the face of the earth; no account of time; no arts; no letters; no society; and which is worst of all, continual fear, and danger of violent death; and the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.

— “Chapter XIII.: Of the Natural Condition of Mankind As Concerning Their Felicity, and Misery.”Leviathan

Anthony’s Wiener

Image

Too much information!  We live in an information age and we are privy to knowing everything about everyone.  The world is not changing, what we know about the world is changing.  We are seeing ourselves in our true state.  We shouldn’t know about Anthony Weiner’s wiener, we shouldn’t care about it, it shouldn’t be news worthy.  The fact that he sexts his wiener to tons on internet hoes doesn’t impact the way in which he does his job.  He has obviously NOT been bribing women not to expose his care package so that argument is invalid.  He has not and is not going to allow himself to be blackmailed over something so trivial, well not so trivial, nudge, nudge, wink, wink.  My point is he is not going to steal from government funds to cover his love tackle, as a matter of fact there is probably nothing that could convince him to cover his junk.  

 

This reminds me of my reaction to the Clinton fiasco.  Clinton lied about something that was NONE OF OUR BUSINESS in the first place.  I don’t know what his relationship is with Hillary, maybe they have an open relationship.  The only thing I should care about is how he treats me.  Clinton didn’t fuck me, he didn’t cheat on me, he was good to me, he looked out for me, I don’t care what he does with his cigar, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, but George w. Bush, fucked me every single day he was in office.  

 

Obama, Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin- Joxua MourningStar Weighs In

images

Lynn: You have such a unique perspective I wanted to talk to you about this Florida case that everybody seems to be obsessed with.  So what do you think about it?

Joxua: The way we handle race relations in this country is like a pendulum.  One group gets to punish another group for crimes of the past or crimes that somebody else committed.  Opinions can be invalid and ignored or not allowed to be voiced in the first place because of the opinion or the source of the opinion.  If its not hip or PC or pleasant you are not allowed to say it and you’re not suppose to be thinking it.  I call it the pleasantness fallacy.  We can’t have an honest discussion when we are not allowed to bring up unpleasant topics and if our opinion is preemptively rejected we have no reason to participate with anybody else’s solution.

Lynn: What is your opinion on Trayvon Martin?

Joxua: I don’t really know enough about him to have an opinion.  If I had an opinion it would be based on superficial aesthetic snap decisions and it would be informed by my own personal bias.  He seems like a normal enough kid to me and what happened to him saddens me but I don’t think he was without some culpability.

Lynn: How do you feel about Zimmerman?

Joxua: I think he is an overzealous, beady-eyed, little fuck.  I have a saying “It is not that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely it is that where the corrupt mind perceives power it reaches for it eagerly.  Another uncorrupt person will perceive responsibility where the other perceives power and reaches for it slowly.  It is interesting that Zimmerman wanted a scenario just like this, but he did’t think beyond the actual event.  He wanted to force his will on somebody else, but he didn’t want the aftermath.  There is an old saying “You have the rights to your actions, but not to the results of your actions.”  Zimmerman wanted to prove himself to the police and in the form of the conquest, he demonstrated that he was unfit to be a policeman, but his behavior was what he thought they would approve of which shows his perception of the police not as protectors and servants but as violent, intrusive overlords and this is the kind of people that are attracted to being police.

Lynn: What do you think about the stand your ground laws?

Joxua: I think we are likely to see more of them when the economy is this bad there is more crime and less money for police so authority has to be given back to the people. You should be allowed to be tribal, self-interested and suspicious in your own neighborhood.  We are likely to see more instances such as this.  When there is no money for a structure of authority to govern then people must govern themselves. There were seven houses robbed in Zimmerman’s neighborhood so he wasn’t being just selfish for himself he was being concernful of his neighbors however misguided his actions were.

Lynn: What do you think of President Obama’s voicing his opinion?

Joxua: I find it interesting that Cornel West likens Obama to Zimmerman for his decisions in America’s wars.  Strong words from Cornel West he’s really getting his parr hesia on.  I love my brother Cornel West.  I personally think Obama overstepped his boundaries as a president expanding his sense of self to include Trayvon saying things like Trayvon reminds him of himself at that age and Trayvon looks like the son that he’s always wanted.  He has basically thrown himself into the fray and faked a foul.  Now Zimmerman didn’t just shoot a wanna be gangster that was beating him unconscious he shot the president as a young man or he shot the president’s son.

Obama is not thinking like or acting like the president.  He hasn’t transcended his attorneyness.  He is acting like a propagandist and throwing his weight on one side. He is essentially throwing gasoline in a fire.  He is being divisive.  The president sets the precedent.  Obama should be thinking like a judge and not like an attorney.  He should be unifying the nation not taking sides in polarizing debates.

Lynn: I know you voted for Obama twice.  I am wondering how you feel about it now.

Joxua: I think he is showing some pressure under the stress.  I am really disappointed with how he has proceeded on this topic.  I still don’t feel that the other presidential options were any better.  I don’t think that the president has as much artistic control as other people think the president has with they moneyed and political forces that he has to contend with I don’t think he can control what happens but he can influence the sequence of events in which things happen.

Lynn: Thank you for your input.
