so, on that note, I've got a question.  Why do you lurk lurkers?  I mean you, if you're a lurker reading this.  Why don't you comment?  It can't be just a matter of time...as in you don't want to waste it, cause otherwise you'd be doing something other than reading this.  So why do you lurk without comment?  What are you scared of?  Being seen or heard? 

You gotta hide in plain sight.

Yeah LD you are so maybe bug out for the time being.  Bob: I love "all the pretty little horses " amidst the slavery as well as the next privileged baby bitch, not to mention yummy and exorbitant ball gowns in the best of taste long languishing in the storage of hell, probably never to return but in the shape of draperies of the future. As the old darkie said, "I knows what I knows, and I sees what I sees." Yes. I know it now. It wasn't everso back in the day. Back in the day of dreaming, dreaming the Stephen Foster hours away. Until finally, after a lifetime of romance and suppression of suspicion, the great reality of human kind and human nature can no longer be denied. Such a romantic sucker am I, probably up to the bitter end. But I do know that carnivores must eat meat. That hormones cannot be either denied or controlled. That survival of the fittest will out in nature red in tooth and claw. That group survival has value only because lone survival trumps all. Sometimes lone survival requires group survival and sometimes not. As we know from Guantanamo, breathing is everything. Sure. Like Ashvin, I so wish it wasn't thus. I so commend civilizations'attempts at rising above. At rising to the challenge of Caritas. At especially having the intelligence of conceiving the IDEA of CARITAS. I must work more on the idea of the glass half full. That is where Agelbert is way ahead. I truly would prefer to be positive, but I was born with a depressive or even manic depressive make up. I can and do vacillate but depressive is dominant. And above all I am a bit obsessive about the idea of truth which has to some extent of course to be a group effort and consensus is involved. Unfortunately, I have never been struck down and blinded on the road to Damascus though I have seen the remains of the public loos in Ephesus. Now, having said that, even forked tongue WHD cannot deny I have a sense of humor.

Is that what that is?! LOL. SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. LOL (some more.) Kali, out of the shadows. If I were near you now I'd offer a back rub. (don't cut my hands off.)  :icon_mrgreen:

WHD: You may not know of what you speak. To relate me to Kali may be more than you could deal with. I personally take it as a compliment but be careful with what you call forth.

That's all why the only thing left for us to do, those of us who want to survive...thrive even, is to make a new way...with new rules.  Rules that don't necessarily apply to reductionist science, but that do apply to the reality of the near future.

So it was keyboarded, so shall it be done.

Kali has dual aspects, yes? I am in service.

A note too, for all those Lurkers out there who do not feel the need or the urge or the necessity to comment, you are a Diner too. Hungry to understand. Which is a thing I admire more than any.

Not me. I hate Lurkers. LOL.

I hate that Lurkers feel constrained to speak what they think. No such thing as democracy if people can't or won't articulate what they really mean. Not everyone is required to speak up either. But you should if you feel called to.

For  all my Guillotine Metaphors and Obeisance to Violence as Solution, one thing I do believe TRUE is that the Pen is Mightier than the Sword; and the Keyboard is Mightier than the Gun.

So YES, in metaphor that graphic of Knights Joining Swords is REALLY Bloggers Joining Words here on the Diner.  I seek the Knights who wield the Words well here.

Sir WHD
Sir Elvis
Sir Lucid Dreams
Sir Monsta
Sir Surly

and yea me too, LORD RE. LOL.   AKA, the GODFATHER! LOL


EGO BIGGER THAN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE! LIVE WITH IT! ROFLMAOPIMP!

Now you're speaking my language RE.  Arthurian Mythology informs my world view more than you probably know. 

The round table is the future.  It's surrounded by knights who aren't afraid to defend truth and justice.  If there are such things.  Let's not forget Merlin either.   ;D

You can't allude to Arthur's table without his mage showing up.  Although you may not know he's there.

Thanks for the kind words Ashvin, will get back to you on the video when I find the time to listen and contemplate. Have the unfortunate chore of preparing my tax info today for the annual dreaded trip to my CPA tomorrow. Could there be time spent in any less productive manner than preparation for the tax man.  Likewise WHD, sure looks interesting.
         
                                               <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/HB6DssUMx-k&fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/HB6DssUMx-k&fs=1</a>

                                           
                                                 Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, nineteen for me
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.

Don't ask me what I want it for
If you don't want to pay some more
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me.                 :'(

The sixties and seventies were nothing but Vietnam. It permeated all the news, every friggin day, made everybody including me totally miserable. It divided the country, forced anyone with smarts to never trust the government again, it was too horrible to imagine unless you lived through it as a young adult and you had all your dreams of the future and hope and trust in your country and it's leaders shattered.  It was indeed a harbinger of the future, I wish I never heard the word, twenty years of lies death and misery. It sucked Big Time.   :(

And that period of time seems like Arcadia compared to what we are facing today, does it not? Unless you were drafted into the Nam, you had relative freedom of movement. No money, but opportunity. Now the entire country is in the grips of a fascist lockdown, with lies everywhere one turns and no trust anywhere.

I feel you.

Bulls eye Surly, Hard to believe I was describing Funtown compared to today. At least we had hope it was going to end some day, and we could get back to life the way it was.  Those hopes are long gone, no more BAU.  :'(

I really like Rob Brezsny, he is a true contrarian (not nihilist) and a great writer and soul. More importantly he's funny. He has an experiment that may or may not get your doomer hackles up:

*PRONOIA IS THE ANTIDOTE FOR PARANOIA*
is available at Amazon: http://bit.ly/Pronoia
or Powells: http://bit.ly/PronoiaPowells


PROCEDURE: Act as if the universe is a prodigious miracle created for your
amusement and illumination. Assume that secret helpers are working
behind the scenes to assist you in turning into the gorgeous masterpiece
you were born to be. Join the conspiracy to shower all of creation with
blessings.

HYPOTHESES: Evil is boring. Cynicism is idiotic. Fear is a bad habit. Despair
is lazy. Joy is fascinating. Love is an act of heroic genius. Pleasure is your
birthright. Receptivity is a superpower.

DEFINITION: Pronoia is the antidote for paranoia. It's the understanding
that the universe is fundamentally friendly. It's a mode of training your
senses and intellect so you're able to perceive the fact that life always
gives you exactly what you need, exactly when you need it.

OBJECTIVE OF PRONOIA: To explore the secrets of becoming a wildly
disciplined, fiercely tender, ironically sincere, scrupulously curious,
aggressively sensitive, blasphemously reverent, lyrically logical, lustfully
compassionate Master of Rowdy Bliss.

GUIDING QUESTION: "The secret of life," said sculptor Henry Moore to
poet Donald Hall, "is to have a task, something you devote your entire life
to, something you bring everything to, every minute of the day for your
whole life. And the most important thing is -- it must be something you
cannot possibly do." What is that task for you?

UNDIGNIFIED MEDITATIONS TO KEEP YOU HONEST: Brag about what you
can't do and don't have. Confess profound secrets to people who aren't
particularly interested. Pray for the success of your enemies while you're
making love. Change your name every day for a thousand days.

TOP-SECRET ALLIES: Sacred janitors, benevolent pranksters, apathy
debunkers, lyrical logicians, ethical outlaws, aspiring masters of curiosity,
homeless millionaires, humble megalomaniacs, hedonistic midwives, lunatic
saints, sly optimists, mystical scientists, dissident bodhisattvas, macho
feminists, and socialist libertarians who possess inside information about
the big bang.

DAILY PRACTICE: Push hard to get better, become smarter, grow your
devotion to the truth, fuel your commitment to beauty, refine your
emotional intelligence, hone your dreams, negotiate with your shadow,
cure your ignorance, shed your pettiness, heighten your drive to look for
the best in people, and soften your heart -- even as you always accept
yourself for exactly who you are with all of your so-called imperfections.
