Creative Ingenuity

The collapse of culture and emotion—spiritual awareness and self-consciousness—in today’s generation is horrifying. It’s a real nail bitter. We have such little regard for passion, for personal connections… where has all the humanity gone? Was it ever there? Do these glorified stories of happy societies living in harmony and waves of flowing glorious energy, filling from the fingertips through toes and exploding from the third eye—the pineal gland—really exist? What a beautifully misused instrument of truth and self-awareness.

We are slaves to the lingering conscious and ideals installed into our now wired brains and psyches. The masses have been re-circuited into thoughtless bands of earthly destruction. We have all seen Terminator 2, yet we have a desire to be mechanized. Greed is destroying us. We have the whole world, literally, at our fingertips. But how do we use this information… To live in ubiquitous happiness and embrace the wonders of humanity and what it is to be human, nah! War. Destruction. Death. What will it take for us to begin working toward betterment for the majority?

As Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”(1)

And I bring all of this to attention in light of Thomas Jefferson: “Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.”(3)

I liked this a lot! I would ask though who you consider the majority to be? In this time of our lives the minority have become the majority. Its a shame we cant focus on spiritual awareness and are to busy focused on spiritual difference. Would you agree though our society is better off than it was 30 or 50 years ago?

I like your video clip– I’m curious to see the rest of The Great Dictator. Have you seen the film Metropolis? It deals with some of the same sentiments about systematic tyranny, not being a human slave, etc. 🙂

I consider the majority to be all of humankind minus the minority of greedy fucks. And, yes! I do indeed that we are better off now, in SOME respects. But I think there are certain cultures that had it figured out almost perfectly but were infiltrated by missionaries and dismantled. But, there is infinite potential, I’ll always believe that.

I have not seen Metropolis, but it is in my Netflix instant queue! haha
