I love discussing geopolitics with authors Elizabeth Gould and Paul Fitzgerald; about the current unraveling of the Western materialist dialectic, which is collapsing into something new – but as we clearly see – not without a fight.
In the face of its own decline, the empire is striking back, morphing into confounding forms previously associated with anti-war and anti-patriarchy but this is only so much window-dressing, for this technocratic combine harvester of a war machine is as power-mad and as bloodthirsty as ever.
Their bogus narrative can only work on a population with an 8-second attention span and totally amnesic as to the basic scope of post-World War II history plus willfully ignorant of what’s really happening with their tax dollars in the Middle East right now.
The horrid Neocon Kabuki spews from “Progressive” mouthpieces, desperate to promote the myth of “Evil Russkies” to maintain its false identity of “Pax Americana,” for without the former, it will cease to exist. Its alleged reason for being does not and never really did exist.
Liz and Paul say that the Neocons/Neoliberals are literally dreaming. They cite a great quote from Lawrence of Arabia to demonstrate the dangers of dreaming stupidly:
“Those who dream by night…wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.”
– Lawrence of Arabia from Seven Pillars of Wisdom
On the other hand, they cite another great quote that shows a powerful understanding of dreams, myths and one’s own life:
“Myths are public dreams; dreams are private myths. By finding your own dream and following it through, it will lead you to the myth-world in which you live. But just as in dream, the subject and object, though they seem to be separate, are really the same.”
– Joseph Campbell
In other words, the answer to the cacaphonous hysterics of Jake Tapper and Chris Cuomo is to turn them off and to get engaged with your own purpose, be present to your own authentic narrative and to those of whom you love and admire.[Apologies for my struggles with the 100ºF+ heat, sweating like a fire hydrant, sweat running into my eyes, down my neck. I don’t have and can’t afford AC and I can’t afford a faster Internet connection, so my video’s out of sync because my area gets crowded in the summer…it’s crazy that it’s come to this…hopefully, things will get better].
