Laudato Si

The whole world is about to make an unparalleled rite of passage.

How you decide to cut down rare indigenous trees in order to pave way for a stone wall fence still baffles me. Like you can't improvise or something. These baby boomers. Smdh. The number of trees that have been felled in Nakuru. God have mercy on us.

His Holiness Pope Francis is the chillest Sensei to ever traverse the 21st century. The most slept on Sensei matter of factly. Perhaps to the levels of Marcus Aurelius, Arcanum or Rumi.

He produced an encyclical named (Laudato si’ : Italian for : “Praise be to you”)
Subtitle: “On Care For Our Common Home”.
Which I curiously went to check out expecting the same old hackneyed environmental tired punditry shit. He does more than talk about climate change, and he makes it look sexy.  The blind see what they want to see.  Don’t let the climate change talk make you fail to notice other teachings in the encyclical. In this encyclical, he takes an ethical interdisciplinary standpoint, a principled way of looking at what’s licit and illicit; factors like mutation, healthy politics, technology, bureaucratic hate, humanism, The financial crisis of 2007-2008, A jab towards Capitalism conjectured by anti eco-snobbery rhetorics , anthropocentrism, anarchy, poetry. All these with a dab of ranch. Supplemented by other disciplines including Islam. He basically points to the cracks in the planet that we inhabit. “The external deserts in the world are growing, because the internal deserts have become so vast.” “The emptier a person’s heart is, the more he or she needs things to buy, own and consume. It becomes almost impossible to accept the limits imposed by reality.”

The Pope could easily be met with accusations of being vehemently ipso facto disgusted by Romanticism or being a Communist Pope but he affirms his position as that good kid who can’t get bullied. He even says “realities are more important than ideas.”
You can’t put words in his mouth.
Pope Francis’ reverse heavenly medieaval diction & language with a profound conviction to match to the extent as if he’s God’s direct mouthpiece or puppet. And how excellent is it to be God’s puppet.
Never have I seen a man so sure of his authority as a teacher like Pope Francis. You’d think he’s Ezekiel incarnate

“If we scan the regions of our planet, we immediately see that humanity has disappointed God’s expectations.”

This one by Pope Francis hit me hard.
The society was dying from drowning and he’s the only one who’s giving it mouth to mouth without trying to kiss it pervertedly like everyone else. His is the only best solution of saving society.

“An authentic humanity, calling for a new synthesis, seems to dwell in the midst…….. Almost unnoticed, like a mist seeping gently beneath a closed door.”

I applaud the book because it shares a lot of my views. Most of the views and standpoint ideologue philosophy I held prior to reading the book.
It just happens that we share the same views. His are just wisely and more elaborate. You feel me. He occupies a point of view that compels his readers to take him seriously. Me am so compromised by my past stupid writings.

We need more people who are capable of staring into the abyss of darkness without falling in, and without losing sight of the light.

Spiritual,? Not really.
The word spiritual has acquired a bad name with its embrace by New-Agers et al. with its association with magic and out of the world mumbo-jumbo. So I use it reservedly.
So not really spiritual.
One thing for sure is that he ain’t dogmatic.

I heard that Pope Francis gave Trump this encyclical when he visited the Vatican. It is too soft for a staunch Capitalist like Trump. It might not even touch his heart or sway his views on Production & Climate change. A little cussing; you know a little motherfucker here and there might have helped the cause.
And it has a Stockholm Syndrome point of view lecturing to it. So yes a little motherfucker would have helped.

“………and that being good and descent are worth it.
We have had enough of immorality and the mockery of ethics, goodness, faith and honesty. It is time to acknowledge that light-hearted superficiality has done us no good.”

Everything in the book/encyclical is so deep I can’t even quote verbatim. Lest I end up quoting the whole book.

Am so happy that Pope Francis made a piece so worthy for the Catholic Millennials to read.
My siz laughing at my poor taste in literary works. Pope Francis is G.O.A.T in my eyes. So, she says whatever floats your goats. She’d rather read about vampires.

Finally someone I can call Sensei. Take that Dalai Lama Louis Farrakhan P.L.O Lumumba nonsense away from me.
Behold, Pope Francis.
Master Sensei.

3 popes in my lifetime. One survived an assassination attempt, died later on, one retired, you are the pope for Christ’s sake, *literally* actually for Peter’s sake; you don’t get to retire. You die on that seat. Pope John Paul even drooling in his last days causing people to go emotional with pity, never retired till his death. Then there is this leftist woke pope. Pope Francis. My Nigga. I actually like him.
Pope John Paul II was a Politician. We now have a Pope. You know, Patron-like, leftist, activist for the weak and hip at the same time. Pope 256.
We have the wokest Pope ever. You just gotta love the guy. Quoting verbatim from his encyclical Laudato Si:

” Everything is related”
“Everything is connected”
“Everything is interrelated”

“Woven together”
“Part of a network which we will never fully explore and understand”
“It cannot be emphasized enough how everything is interconnected”

The reason am saying he’s the wokest pope is because of this. The words “everything is connected” or something of the sort speaking about divine harmony and fraternity or sacred geometry have been repeated in the encyclical close to 70 times give or take 15 to 20.

image

They echo Hippie thoughts, Hopi Native American thought

image

and Hermetic Qabbalah doctrine.

image

So yes he’s woke. Even Leonardo da Vinci held the same thoughts

image

“Learn how to see, Realize that everything connects to everything else.”
                                          ~ Leonardo da Vinci

From the encyclical;
[Sic]
“Intimately and inseparably connected in this universe.”
“All of us are linked by unseen bonds and together form a kind of a universal family, a sublime communion which fills us with a sacred, affectionate and humble respect.”

image

“There is an interrelation between ecosystems and between the various spheres of social interaction, demonstrating yet again that “the whole is greater than the part.”
“…….also entails a loving awareness that we are not disconnected from the rest of creatures, but joined in a splendid universal communion.”
“…. human life is grounded on three fundamental and closely intertwined relationships: with God, with our neighbour and with the earth itself”
“As believers, we do not look at the world from without but from within, conscious of the bonds with which the father has linked us to all beings.”
“Give us the grace to feel profoundly joined to everything that is.”

image

The Unified Theory of everything
We are binary strings of ones and zeroes. Our subconscious minds are coded with innate mental connections back to our Universal Programmer.

image

Think of Sacred Geometry as the written law of creation. Rigid, flowing algorithms of energy converted into a physical formula. This is the unified theory of everything.
Wise move accepting it into the church Pope Francis.

image

All beings are energetically connected.

image

image

image

Separation is an illusion. It is spiritual.
Mainstream conditioning shall never laugh me out of the spiritual philosophy of Pope Francis

image

I will explore the possibility of a path out of the seeming impossibility of escaping the cul-de-sac of our spiritually disinherited and disenchanted condition. According to Haile Selassie: “Spirituality does not come from religion. It comes from our soul.”

“We must stop confusing religion, and spirituality. Religion is a set of rules, regulations, and rituals created by humans which were supposed to help people spiritually. Due to human imperfection, religion has become corrupt, political, divisive, and a tool for power struggle. Spirituality is not theology or ideology. It is simply a way of life, pure and original given by the Most High. Spirituality is a network linking us to the Most High, the universe, and each other.” ~ Haile Selassie I

image

      Or not
Therein lies the problem. You can’t replace something with nothing.
“A little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to atheism; but depth in philosophy bringeth men’s mind about to religion.” – Sir Francis Bacon

Pope Francis states that:

” A spirituality which forgets God as all powerful and creator is not acceptable. This is how we end up worshipping earthly powers, or ourselves usurping the place of God, even to the point of claiming an unlimited right to trample his creation underfoot.”

“I would add that religious classics can prove meaningful in every age; they have an enduring power to open new horizons….. Is it reasonable and enlightened to dismiss certain writings simply because they arose in the context of religious belief?”

If there is something like Christian braggadocio, Pope Francis further states:

“The rich heritage of Christian spirituality, the fruit of twenty centuries of personal and communal experience has a precious contribution to the renewal of humanity.”

“I am interested in how such a spirituality can motivate us to a more passionate concern for the protection of our world. A commitment this lofty cannot be sustained by doctrine alone, without a spirituality capable of inspiring us, without an “interior impulse which encourages, motivates, nourishes and gives meaning to our individual and communal activity.”

As you can see His Holiness is rooted in a spiritual understanding of the human condition.

                       ∞∞∞ ∞∞∞

“Relationships have been broken, both outwardly and within us. This rupture is sin. The harmony between the Creator, humanity and creation as a whole was disrupted by our presuming to take the place of God and refusing to acknowledge our creaturely limitations. This in turn distorted our mandate to “have dominion” over the earth.”

Fair assumption Pope.

Sorry Master Sensei but I’ll have to differ with you on this part. This part where you say:

“We are not God.”

The only way of making man’s responsibility as custodian of the earth stem from within is by declaring him a God.

image

We are the gods. If we aren’t the gods then let the true gods come clean these earthly mess that is ……. Well we are still fucked either way coz every earthly mess is of humans’ own doing.

man is a divine being—the likeness of God, or better yet, God’s vehicle of manifestation in the world.

image
We are the gods

Behold, thouthren,

“Bid the invaders take the shoes from off their feet, for God is here within.”
  -Ralph Waldo Emerson

image

Or better yet, transcendent in comparison to other species.
We are the true gods. We’ll even cause the Armageddon. Mankind will completely annihilate itself without help from outside.

The Anunnaki👽regrets giving Humans free will because through EVOLution, Humans already surpassed their slave DNA & are re-becoming Gods.

It’s all in Urban Dictionary, I don’t make this shit up. 
Truth is a mighty volume of epigrams and paradoxes.
… Real truth is caught in single word.
… And the ultimate truth bleeds even now in a-
Wreathed mess of skinless time. Time!

That old saying of “I’ll believe it when I see it”… well, it really should be, “When I believe it, I will see it.”

According to the 11 Laws of God:

0. Law of Amen – You were made in the likeness of a peace that nothing can disturb. Reclaim your peace that you may attain to your reason for coming into existence – the enjoyment of life.

1. Law of Ausar – Your nature is an unconquerable peace, therefore nothing or no one in the world can be against you. All experiences come to you to promote your reclamation of peace, that you may in turn, aquire wisdom and power.

2. Law of Tehuti – When all of your thoughts, feelings and actions reflect the Word of God, then the power of God’s spirit and a peace that nothing can challange will flow through your being.

3. Law of Sekher – When the emotions of Man manifest in response to the Word of God, they have the power to influence the course of any and all events in the world.

4. Law of Ma’at – God needs you in order to come into the world. Fulfilling God’s need is the highest act of love, and only through your love for God can you fulfill your love for others. Become the Love of God in the world for the protection of the world.

5. Law of Herukhuti – Know that God neither punishes nor rewards nor protect, that you will have the comfort of controlling these yourself.

6. Law of Heru – You have the power but not the right to ignore God’s Law. Choose to follow the Law of God with the Love and Joy that grows out of understanding and the wisdom and power of God’s spirit will flow through your being.

7. Law of Het-Heru – It is not what you imagine. It is who is imagining. Are you a human or a divine being?

8. Law of Sebek – It is not what you think or what you affirm. It is who is thinking and affirming. Are you a human or a divine being?

9. Law of Auset – Prepare to sacrifice everything to become the vessel of God on earth, and you will, in turn, receive everything.

10. Law of Geb – Know that from heaven you came and to heaven you will return, seek not enduring works on earth.

You become what you believe. You are what you worship.

At all. There is no GOD outside of the divine self. Az in Namaste. Namaste directly translates to “the divine in me bows to the divine in you.”

Qwani how do you think confessions in Catholic work. It follows the Namaste principle. The divine in me lays bare my shameful acts to a chosen divine(Priest) for absolution from sin. Approved by humans (gods).

Prayers too. The god in us is akin to our bargaining tool to the universe. The god in us is connected to the universe. If you ask God for something, the God in you through the web connection to the universe makes it happen.  ‘The Universe is nothing but the Divine uttering its own name to itself.’ – Ramakrishna. Most of y’all may say that’s tantamount to thinking like a Mason, but boy o boy; Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth. It is multiplicity that reveals unity; one is only definable because two exists; knowledge is predicated on this illusion of separation.

image

Whatever the Ritual involved, the Rosary is designed to speak to your feminine side. Its actually the only feminine prayer making it the strongest prayer on Earth. A Prayer with a motherly benevolence.
Women are emotional in order to feel the divine energy at the highest levels and to be supreme healers and lovers and mothers. Not to drive men insane. Her deep spiritual connection to feelings is to inspire a man to his spiritual heights as well. She is not a nag, she is an oracle.

We are living a life out of balance by only having one feminine prayer. The rest are all masculine. Yin & Yang much? Protect The Divine Masculine
Uplift The Divine Feminine

Even though Pope Francis blatantly says that ‘We are not God’, he turns around and says this later:

“each of these sublime realities is God. This is not because the finite things of this world are really divine, but because the mystic experiences the intimate connection between God and all beings and thus feels that all beings are God.”

That’s a subtle acknowledgement. I know the nuances involved in Papacy. It was imperative for him to denounce but still imperative for him to acknowledge. He’s perpetuating binary thinking. Mahn the word became flesh in order to remind us that we are the true gods.

“Grace, which tends to manifest itself tangibly, found unsurpassable expression when God himself became man and gave himself as food for his creatures. An act of Cosmic love. “Yes, Cosmic!”

Not my words. But I know that this is a nefarious way of using his words to justify my theories but the only panacea.

“The universe unfolds in God, who fills it completely.”
“The ideal is not only to pass from the exterior to the interior to discover the action of God in the soul, but also to discover God in all things.” Bam!

In the beginning of time, the subjective soul was unconscious of itself. It then evolved overtime to become conscious of itself, and then conscious of other in relation to self. In time, the Soul will evolve in consciousness to develop the realization that the Self and other are One, and thus complete one rotation of the circle of life.
This is why Saints have the ability to pray for us. The self and other are one. This is even why we get to decide who and who become Saints.
Saint Aquinas
Saint Anthony
Saint Mary
Have the abilities of praying for us.
What is bound on earth is bound in heaven.
We decide who the Saints are. Like St. Valentine who was beaten by clubs, beheaded, buried under the cover of darkness, disinterred by his followers, is commemorated  by sending each other chocolates in honor of his martyrdom.

We decide for ourselves everything on earth.
National Anthems, laws, everything.

God chooses the leaders, huh. God doesn’t choose the leaders, we choose them. Coz we are the gods.

God won’t interfere with Kim Jong Un and Trump’s pissing contest.

God doesn’t meddle but Lucifer meddles. Hence the concept of selling one’s soul to the devil. It goes like this
Lucifer ain’t a god; hence cannot create; thus uses us (humans/gods) gods in flesh to create. Evil & Nefarious.

The gods are great but people are greater
For it is in their hearts that gods are born

Old cosmologies, symbol systems and religions are the products of humans’ own creativity; God just approves by putting a stamp on the current unanimous worldly zeitgeist.

Mat 18:18 “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

And zeitgeists do change. Abrahamic Religions just happen to be the main current Zeitgeist.

image
As above so below. What's bound on earth is bound in heaven

No ‘new’ is as good, as the ‘old’
For ‘old’ is all, but, there to gage
In bazaars of ‘now’, still past is sold.

image
There are only two options. Either Become CHRIST conscious or join the Illuminati

The awakening of consciousness is the next evolutionary step for mankind.
If by binding something on earth it gets bound in heaven, then there’s so much we could achieve together but ‘together’ is a word we miss in our socialisation, hence the purpose of wokenisation.
Romans 11.17 – Try to do what everyone considers to be good.
Being woke means an analogy as much as coming out of slumber if we fail to realize that we are the true gods.

image

image

There is no term more ubiquitous, obnoxious, and self-serving in our current lexicon as “woke.” Woke is safety-pin politics, masturbatory symbolism, and virtue signalling of a deflated civil society insulated by algorithms, filter bubbles, and Google Chrome extensions that replace pictures of Donald Trump with Pinterest recipes.
Woke is a misnomer —— it’s actually asleep and myopic. Woke is a safe space for the easily distracted and defensive pop culture inbred. Woke is the average millenial curled up in a fetal ball scribbling think pieces about Konza City and Game of Thrones while its rights get trampled by ascendent fascism, domestically and globally.

The main reason the Pope doesn’t want to acknowledge that we are gods is not to precipitate a “The People vs. The Gods” debate but because he is against anthropocentrism.

“Modern anthropocentrism has paradoxically ended up prizing technical thought over reality, since “the technological mind sees nature as an insensate order, as a cold body of facts, as a mere ‘given’, as an object of utility, as a material to be hammered into useful shape; it views the cosmos similarly as a mere ‘space’ into which objects can be thrown with complete indifference.”

“The intrinsic dignity of the world is thus compromised. When human beings fail to find their true place in this world, they misunderstand themselves and end up acting against themselves.”

“Yes we have unique capacities of knowledge, will, freedom and responsibility but we shouldn’t be anthropocentric. Since a misguided anthropocentrism would yield to biocentrism which would entail adding yet another imbalance, failing to solve present problems and adding new ones. A misguided anthropocentrism leads to a misguided lifestyle.”

“When human beings place themselves at the centre, they give absolute priority to immediate interests.”

According to the Holy Father,

“the best way to restore men and women to their rightful place, putting an end to their claim to absolute dominion over the earth, is to speak once more of the figure of a father who creates and who alone owns the world. Otherwise, human beings will always try to impose their own laws and interests on reality.”

the science of Laudato si’ is watertight. He intentionally left a few lose ends for you to fill in the blanks and decide whether to tighten or loosen further the ends.
By being against tyrannical anthropocentrism, is the Pope endorsing the thought of evolution without really endorsing it? You feel me?.
I mean Laudato Si provides a blank check of sorts to anyone willing to play the role of the tough talking straight shooter.
Am more than glad to do that

Climate Change Vs. Global Warming
Fossil Fuels vs. Plastics
Deforestation vs. Endangered Species

Global warming is not real. Climate change is, and that’s because the earth goes in cycles every few hundred years. If it is real it should be put under climate change. Fuck this duplicity.

Global warming obfuscates climate change.
Plastics obfuscate fossil fuels
Endangered species obfuscate deforestation.

one way to disarm a dangerous idea is to give it a non-threatening euphemism.
This is what is happening right now. The elite or whoever control the world won’t allow Capitalism to fail. Every solution to the world’s mess is economically insensible. So they use diversionary techniques. Make you talk about Global Warming instead of Climate Change, Plastics instead of Fossil Fuels and endangered species instead of deforestation.

one way to disarm a dangerous idea is to give it a non-threatening euphemism.

Does the scientific community, NASA and the world Elite have something to hide about our existence? Absolutely! sooner or later you might realize even reality is make believe

Pope Francis tells us :

  “Considering all the available information and of calling things by their name. It sometimes happens that complete information is not put on the table; a selection is made on the basis of particular interests, be they politico-economic or ideological. This makes it difficult to reach a balanced and prudent judgement on different questions, one which takes into account all the pertinent variables.”

All humans are susceptible to the “Illusion of Truth” effect – The more we hear something, the more we believe it’s true.

Global warming is not real. Climate change is, and that’s because the earth goes in cycles every few hundred years. If at all it is real, it should be put under climate change. Climate change can result from position of continents, axis tilt; orbit ellipticity, and precession, HOWEVER. Those processes take… Thousands and thousands of years and can’t explain the current state of rapid warming. That’s why people are calling it global warming.

Many tend to forget about the worst once the good times return, however briefly.

We romanticize summer so much in the winter. That time the heat? The smells? The scorching sun?

In the wet months you forget about global warming.. You even joke that the world is too wet it needs to be put in rice… But when its dry and hot you start your empty anti eco snobbery rhetoric

I honestly don’t care. Not in a bad way. I just don’t have room in my heart for endangered species and all that other bull. Only elephants. No need bullshitting around. Mahn too much new age bullshit hypocrisy.

Let me tell you about endangered species, all right? Saving
endangered species is just one more arrogant attempt by humans to control
nature. It’s arrogant meddling. It’s what got us in trouble in the first
place. Doesn’t anybody understand that? Interfering with nature. Over
90%, way over 90% of all the species that have ever lived on this planet,
ever lived, are gone. They’re extinct. We didn’t kill them all. They
just disappeared. That’s what nature does. We’re so self-important, so
self-important. Everybody is going to save something now. Save the
trees, save the bees, save the whales, save those snails. And the
greatest arrogance of all, save the planet. What?

I’m tired of these self-righteous environmentalists, these middle-class
‘Woke’ baby boomers who think the only thing wrong with this country is
there aren’t enough Half marathons, people trying to make the world safe
for their Toyotas. There is nothing wrong with the planet. Nothing wrong
with the planet. The planet is fine. The people are (fucked) —
difference, difference. The planet is fine. Compared to the people, the
planet is doing great. It’s been here four and a half billion years. Did
you ever think about the arithmetic? The planet has been here four and a
half billion years. We’ve only been engaged in heavy industry for a
little more than 200 years.

Two hundred years versus four and a half billion, and we have the
conceit to think that somehow we’re a threat, that somehow we’re going to
put in jeopardy this beautiful little blue-green ball that’s just
a-floatin’ around the sun? The planet has been through a lot worse than
us, been through all kinds of things worse than us, been through
earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares,
sunspots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles, hundreds of
thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors,
worldwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays,
recurring ice ages, and we think some plastic bags and some aluminum cans
are going to make a difference? The planet isn’t going anywhere. We are!
We’re going away.

image
These things had to go
The world only had room for the African Elephant
Leave the polar bears alone. Its their turn to evolve.
The most conscious are the gods.

The universe is a beautiful woman. Choosy. And it chose us, mammals over reptiles. Mega reptiles (dinosaurs) went into extinction for mammals to thrive. The universe chose mammals because it knew that only mammals had the right ingredients (love for young ones, breastfeeding, internal fertilization) for springing up a being so high in intelligence and intricacy. A being who was able to find the earth’s clitoris and make her cum. Man. Its our turn now. The best we could ask of the universe is 10 million years unchecked by other species.

[Sic]

“Sobriety and humility were not favourably regarded in the last century”

We’re going away. Pack your shit, folks. We’re going away. And we won’t leave much of a trace, either. Maybe a little Styrofoam … The planet’ll be here and we’ll be long gone. Just another failed mutation. Just another closed-end biological mistake. An evolutionary cul-de-sac. The planet’ll shake us off like a bad case of fleas.

The planet will be here for a long, long, LONG time after we’re gone, and it will heal itself, it will cleanse itself, ’cause that’s what it does. It’s a self-correcting system. The air and the water will recover, the earth will be renewed. And if it’s true that plastic is not degradable, well, the planet will simply incorporate plastic into a new paradigm: the earth plus plastic. The earth doesn’t share our prejudice toward plastic. Plastic came out of the earth. The earth probably sees plastic as just another one of its children. Could be the only reason the earth allowed us to be spawned from it in the first place. It wanted plastic for itself. Didn’t know how to make it. Needed us. Could be the answer to our age-old egocentric philosophical question, “Why are we here?”

Plastic… asshole.

“Doomsday predictions can no longer be met with irony or disdain. We may well be leaving to coming generations debris, desolation and filth. The pace of consumption, waste and environmental change had so stretched the planet’s capacity that our contemporary lifestyle, as unsustainable as it is, can only precipitate catastrophes, such as those which even now periodically occur in different areas of the world.”

“Although the post-industrialist period may well be remembered as one of the most irresponsible in history, nonetheless there is reason to hope that humanity at the dawn of the twenty-first century will be remembered for having generously shouldered its grave responsibilities.” 😂 😂

“When nature is viewed solely as a source of profit and gain, this had serious consequences for society. The vision of “might is right” has engendered immense inequality, injustice and acts of violence against the majority of humanity, since resources end up in the hands of the first comer of the most powerful : the winner takes all.”

                            ∞∞∞ ∞∞∞

Pope Francis seemingly speaks to Kenya, Nairobi to be specific in Chapter 3 of the encyclical – Human Ecology.
All I could see was Mukuru/ Kibra/ Korogocho/ Mathare/ Baba Dogo/ Dandora and KiaMichael. The populous Eastlands. This area houses over 2.6 million or 60 per cent of the city’s population and its most active workforce.

“Respect for our dignity as human beings often jars with the chaotic realities that people have to endure in city life.”

“It is important that the different parts of a city be well integrated and that those who live there have a sense of the whole, rather than being confined to one neighborhood and failing to see the larger city as space which they share with others.”

This is very true mahn. In Kibra, the young and old are equal in hopelessness. Kibera, Mathare and Kangemi are a ticking time bomb. Just one mistake in the heights of Charles Taylor could lead to the biggest pogrom in Africa’s history.

“I will do whatever he asks,” said one supporter, 50-year-old Polycarp Orinda, a resident of Kibera slums.

“I will go to the streets if he wants us to go there.” – AFP

These people have no hope. Don’t judge them for blindly supporting the only person selling them hope. If you’ve got hope, own your privilege but don’t judge and favour favour the killing of the less privileged.
Brilliant minds are fading away in these slums.
Its fucked up coz they’ve got no friends/ relatives in high positions.

“There is also a need to protect those common areas, visual landmarks and urban landscapes which increase our sense of belonging, of rootedness, of ‘feeling at home’ within a city which includes us and brings us together.”

The African capital city looks like any other in the world, with all the edifices of power and wealth—extravagant presidential mansions, resplendent parliament buildings, ornate courthouses and a skyscraper or two. But its concrete solidity is deceptive.

If it were to vanish in an instant, society would not lose much. It has no treasure troves of art and artefacts, or architectural heritage like the Forbidden City, the Taj Mahal and the Sydney Opera House, and cultural life like Broadway or the Rio Carnival which are woven into our identity. In Nairobi what else brings people together other than that K’Ogalo mascot the Tom Mboya statue? That amusement PARK they call the Parliament? Or the Jevanjee smoking zone perhaps. Or Uhuru Park ?
Wangari Maathai was beaten up and her dreadlocks cut through pulling coz she stood against those sick heads who wanted to turn Uhuru Park into some Prime Real Estate.

The vast majority of the African city’s residents have no stake, no property and perhaps most importantly, no social status.

Long ago, Nairobi used to be dismissed in travel brochures as a go-go city without a soul. Well that was better.
Nairobi is now the garbage city in the sun.
It is now filled with thieves, rogue matatus, smoke and slums upon slums, Chakula imelala ya Spur, broke reckless teens, hopeless debauchery leading to 25 and over clubs. Its a hopeless mess.

Oh, I forgot, and street children have quadrupled. Its like Kidero poured them there. (Thank God he’s out btw.)

They accost you on Kenyatta Avenue, the city’s premier boulevard that cuts through the middle of the city. They play hide and seek along Mama Ngina Street. Mama Ngina Street was once the cleanest, best-organised human-friendly street in the city.

Pope Francis says

“We were not meant to be inundated by cement, asphalt, glass and metal, and deprived of physical contact with nature.”

Mahn I couldn’t agree more

The Penalties of Urban living in the 21st Century

Early Stages of Madness

The urban dweller, unlike his country counterpart, is subjected to constant and very fast changes of the physical environment. Obviously the body, especially the brain, has to adjust to these changes as fast as they occur in order to keep the individual in a balanced state of mind. The human brain, being the wonderful organ it is, is normally able to cope with these changes for a whole lifetime without an individual showing any major change in his state of mind.
Independent tests on 10000 dead adult urban dwellers and on the same number of country dweller show, however, distinct, signs of wear and tear on the brain tissues which, had the individual lived to a certain age could have resulted in total madness. There is, however a pronounced absence of these signs in the country dweller.

Every so called skate zone/ skate park is crowded asf.
You can’t skate in Kasa if you’re not part of a crew/ gang. You either learn their handshakes/ gang signs or bounce to Panari and skate with the rich kids. Even worse, pay fare to That skatepark behind Nairobi School (Shangilia Skatepark). Or if you’ve got brass bollocks and no brains go skate on Muindi Mbingu Street then we’ll pay for your kanjo fine or you get knocked by a matatu. Mahn fuck Nairobi. In Naks I can skate anywhere. Wherever whenever I want to.

Nakuru though. We built this town. Planned it, Even though Moi heavily interfered with Nakuru Politics, at least the town has a soul. It is super lit as far as I am concerned. Town organization, specific matatu zones, less cartels, specific street kids zones, More ass, booty to look at, less snobbery, you can trust absolutely anyone in Nakuru, less thugs… Zero thugs, healthy rich-poor balance, organized slums. More chill spots.

“We were not meant to be inundated by cement, asphalt, glass and metal, and deprived of physical contact with nature.”

Nakuru niggas are running out of stuff to diss Nairobi with coz we recently started living in a glass house.. Throwing stones wouldn’t be a good idea.

Since late last year, Northern Nakuru was gripped with what is the biggest Mosquito infestation in Nakuru history.
The mosquitoes were so vicious and they came in millions you’d think Nakuru was Kisumu.

The sophisticated 21st century mosquito. Mosquitoes not native to a land tend to be the most ferocious. The Nakuru mosquitoes for instance. Kenya’s once transition safe heaven now dangerously infested by these nuisance insects. Hazard recipe.

Let’s say there was a plasmodium epidemic.. 90 % of the kids not sleeping under nets would die.

Mosquitoes are a human reflection

They ingest on our DNA

I fucking hate mosquitoes. I mean, I know I am delicious, but I don’t give out free samples

👊 I am always thinking who and why this blood sucking creatures exist and for what purpose 😉

From where i am sitting, the mosquito epidemic could only be due to climate change.

The real climate change is happening in Nakuru.
From 2004 – 2010 it was steady but from 2010 – 2017 it has become rapid.

I have witnessed close to 40% of the outer town Nakuru forest population get lost. And the indifference to it sucks.

In Nakuru, the planting season has drastically shifted from February to April. Rainfall dependent farmers now begin planting in April, let that sink in. Next, farmers will begin planting in August. And it ain’t funny.

The only town left with sane & better weather is Eldoret. So it wins. It wins in everything apart from swag. The only major Kenyan town with no swag.
But a better climate is better than swag.

Climate change sucks mahn Mosquitoes in Nakuru. Nakuru of all places who would’ve ever thought

Now Eldoret is cooler than Nakuru, literally.

All these things are caused by institutionalized greed.

“Corrupted behavior is directly related to environmental deterioration.” – Francis

The root cause is quitting the laws of nature and assuming the laws of man.
They overbuilt, put nature to the test. If you’re in tune with nature like the Hopis, the balance of life, the harmony of nature, if you understand that, you don’t overbuild, you don’t do all these moron stuff. Its a symphony, everybody is in the band.

Francis asks “what the commandment ‘Thou shall not kill’ means when ‘twenty percent of the world’s population consumes resources at a rate that robs the poor nations and future generations of what they need to survive.'”

Yet climate change poses an existential threat to us in Africa. Although the continent produces two per cent of the annual greenhouse gas emissions, it is expected to bear the brunt of the negative effects of climate change and global warming. 

“The time has come to accept decreased growth in some parts of the world, in order to provide resources for other places to experience healthy growth.”

And as the French say, noblesse oblige. Those in a position of privilege must accept the responsibility that comes with that privilege. 

China, the world’s biggest polluter, what a sleazy definition. Its like that guy who persistently farts in class. Magnanimously ignominious to be precise.

America the second-largest polluter in the world, it has, over the years, emitted more planet-warming carbon dioxide than any other country. Their religion is capitalism. A focus on profit.

“Where profits alone count, there can be no thinking about the rhythms of nature, its phases of decay and regeneration, or the complexity of ecosystems which may be gravely upset by human intervention.”

“Whenever these questions are raised, some react by accusing others of irrationally attempting to stand in the way of progress and human development.”

There is no solution that wouldn’t plunge us back into 1850s living standards and vastly cripple our economy.

When one man is happy, another man is sad, as The Manhattans sang in the famous 1973 golden oldie album, There’s No Me Without You.

“Many things have to change course, but it is we human beings above all who need to change. We lack an awareness of our common origin, of our mutual belonging, and of a future to be shared with everyone. This basic awareness would enable the development of new convictions, attitudes and forms of life. A great cultural, spiritual and educational challenge stands before us, and it will demand that we set out on the path of renewal.”

“In the absence of objective truths or sound principles other than the satisfaction our own desires and immediate needs that limits can be placed on human trafficking, organized crime, the drug trade, commerce in blood diamonds and the fur of endangered species?”

one can also hear some yawns in the audience. Sorry I tricked you into reading this long ass post.

To sum all this shit up I think what the Pope is Tryna tell us is to live by the Golden Rule.

image

The existence of pain, death, thought, and emotion solidify the Golden Rule as primary, and all others as mere commentary.
If you don’t live by the Golden Rule you’re full of shit; The Lord sees through bullshit.

It would be so unfair for God to interfere with human life..

image

Blessings are there .. In other words they are known as karma.. But God doesn’t interfere with human life.

image

We are the shapers of our own reality. Ever since Jesus, The days of God meddling came to an end.

The all time homerun king

If you pray….. I already said that.

Kendrick Lamar categorically stated, “What happens on earth stays on earth” The universe is autonomous and self serving. Every wrong you do gets punished in your lifetime & every good deed you do gets rewarded in your lifetime. Nothing but your heart gets carried to the proverbial Rubicon. Lesser souls perhaps get thrown into the abyss

Nemesis, goddess of moderation, not of vengeance, is watching. She chastises, ruthlessly, all those who go beyond the limit.

“Truly, much can be done!” ~ His Holiness Pope Francis.

Ignore me and get the encyclical. Read it.

The Path : HiiiPower

Warning: long post ahead

image
Cache Sexe

The koteka or penis sheath is traditionally worn by male natives of some ethnic groups in New Guinea to cover their genitals. Apparently dick flashing is Disrespect disregard for common decency. I never knew that.

What I know is that the koteka qualifies as an icon of respect in our society. Respect enforces honour among men. This sheath/ gourd/ cache sexe covers the penis, which is a love sharing tool. Love is akin to heart. Therefore, the cache sexe/ koteka is an icon for Hiii Power. Heart, Honour & Respect. Something I wrote about a while back. Courtesy of Kendrick Lamar the Ayatollah.

image

“HiiiPower is the way we think. The way we live. See it’s known today that the human race is nothing. No morals, no standards. What we’re about to do is raise the level of expectations. No, you don’t have to have a lot of money. You don’t have to be rich. But you will be rich in mind and spirit. Some say it’s big as a crew, some say its big as a gang. We stand for it as if it’s a religion.” – Kendrick Lamar

I sense a kindred Spirit. Its Kendrick Lamar the rock star philosopher badass & his black hippie cohorts TDE.
image

TDE over Dreamvillains anyday. Nothing personal, am just philosophically bent.. & Top Dawg Entertainment has a Foundational Philosophy. There is philosophy in TDE. A guiding spirit.
“HiiiPoWeR” a movement which they treat it as if it were a religion.
The three ‘i’s in the word “HiiiPoWeR” stand for heart, honor and respect—the three main things that people should have and live by.

TDE has no weak links. Every artist releases quality music. They are the most conscious Rap group of this generation.
Isaiah Rashad, Ab Soul, Kendrick, Jay Rock and Q the truth but yall be gassing them other niggas like fr

We’ll consider Kendrick a sell out if and only he divagates from his foundational ethos Hiii Power – The 3 i’s Heart Honour & Respect.

He rep’d on DAMN. I was counting on him to rep. I was really counting on him to stick to the Path. Am really glad he had songs with these titles (Love, Loyalty, Humble, Pride.)
It wasn’t random that he gave the tracks those names. This just shows us that he would never divagate from the path.

The album has millions of lesson. Its thought provoking. Last time I heard something this thought provoking was  Nas waxing poetical in “Take it in blood” or No Church in the Wild. Mahn I thought the world was ending soon when I heard FEAR.

But that’s another story.

I was counting on Kendrick to stick to the Path, which he did ever so gracefully, unradioworthily though.

What’s important is the path.
The Path aims at providing man with an unshakable conviction based on logically derived understanding.

Heart, Honour & Respect. When you lose one of them the whole thing has to reorganize itself to make up for what’s missing.

This path is akin to The Way (a spiritual book) written by Saint José Maria  Escriva the initiator of the Opus dei Catholic prelate or akin to Confucius teachings. Even further it could be equated to the Bushido (武士道?, “the way (or the moral) of the warrior”) a Japanese term for the samurai way of life,

Am just the person to expand Kdot’s teachings like how Saint Paul expounded Jesus teachings
Or how Vladimir Lenin expounded Marxist teachings.

image

Imma steal Aristotle’s triangle and use it. The three vertices are Heart, Honor & Respect.
To the Greeks, the triangle is symbolic of a doorway. It also symbolizes harmony between three parts. Mine are heart, honour, Respect. By balancing the three we get a path. – Hiii Power. A way of living.

The Path is a Panacea for the Society.
Good men have been kneeling down for too long its time to stand up.

There’s a fine line between Heart & Love, Fear & Respect, Pride & Honour. But its still a line. Imma goose your mind.

Yo dude. My hypothesis doesn’t have to be right. I just write to get things off my chest. Catharsis. If I don’t put my thoughts on paper I think I’ll die. So chill.

Heart

At heart am An ardent student of human nature; fascinating paradox we are
So wise and yet so foolish
So brave and yet so fearful
One thing stands in the modern society. People’s hearts are so bankrupt. Minds so baleful it pollutes our will.

People’s souls are so contaminated that art can’t touch their hearts.

People’s’ hearts are so corrupted that they can’t even appreciate art

You can see a man’s face but you can’t see his heart.

Every custom and civilization, that there ever was, every form of social engagement, of human interaction, of friendship, of love, evolve around this single word.

Think for a moment, or as long as it takes. Strip passed the aftermath and do not dwell on the battle itself. We are searching for the absolute core, The deepest parts of our hearts, not the branches that grew as tempers flared, nor the distorted version, that we tell so often, we come to believe as truth. All that soul searching bollocks

Our hearts so bankrupt We like or need to feel justified, as opposed to owning the mistakes we make. And the real nerve, we sometimes become angry, at the person who is simply unraveling the mess we made.

Baleful minds We avoid knowledge for fear it may alter our thought, and we hide our faults and imperfections, as if  we should be viewed as perfect, yet still believe  in a Higher Power. Pious hearts The irony may be missed, but the contradictions, we simply absolve.

Life’s always got me wondering, am I doing it right?

It ain’t about what you do, it’s about how and why you do it. No such thing as good and evil. Only intent and perspective. The heart decides perspective. Its all about the heart.

I live my Truth,
discuss it passionately,
listen to other perspectives,
adopt what resonates
and leave what doesn’t.

The mantra : If the heart is pure.

You have only one judge of character, and this is yourself. Your heart. Decisions you make and how these decisions are carried out are a reflection of whom you truly are. Your heart. I find emotional dishonesty offensive. But we all know You cannot hide from yourself.

Lord please make me a clean heart.

Art can only touch a pure heart. I’d rather die than lose my sense of art.

The value of art can only be measured by how pure the heart is. The point is being selfish with art so that it may have meaning when being given away. Donated to a museum, given as a gift,

Art should be free. Its value should be measured by how generous the giver was. The hearts of both the artist and recipient of the art.

Is a pure heart important?
You decide.

Lord please have mercy on me when my heart turns cold.

The less you have, the more their worth. To Friends

Honour

Honour is one of the seven virtues of a warrior besides Rectitude, Courage, Benevolence, Politeness/Propriety, Honesty/ Sincerity & Loyalty.

Savages are warriors without honor. If by lacking honour, warriors become savages then what does dishonor do to us? There is no honor among scumbags right? Then a lack of honor makes us scumbags.

No honor among scumbags, right?
.. Test of honour/ character

Not knowing what you are doing is an act of dishonor.

Proclamation of fake consciousness is an act of dishonor. Only true purpose is that which is lived, not spoken. Talk your walk.

Betrayal has to be the greatest act of dishonour – Snitching

Never abandon your generation.

Manipulation of Karma is an act of dishonor

Always waiting to learn from experience is dishonorable.

A man may fail many times,
but he isn’t a failure
until he begins to blame somebody else.
 – John Burroughs

Pay your debts
Pay your taxes
Keep your word

The hammer of God hits those who lack honor.

Primary emotions like Jealousy make you lose your honour.
Greed will take away your honour
It is dishonorable to have Fleeting visions
No conviction

Respect begets honour

It is honorable to make your mum happy. Not proud. Pride is a sin

All honourable things are simple and many can be expressed in single words. Nobility, Magnanimity, Conviction, Justice, Hardwork, Honesty, Courage, Loyalty and balls.

But conviction is the cornerstone.
Lacking conviction is like living on your knees.
religion and the law restored social order and basically enforced honour among men,

The more you learn, the less you know.

I KNOW too much; I have stuffed too many of the facts of History and Science into my intellectuals. My eyes have grown dim over books; believing in the logos & studying the universe has prematurely aged me.

You can’t have both truth and happiness. I urge you to choose happiness unless you get a calling. A true calling.
The more you learn the less you know.. Just choose the easy path. Conviction/ belief whatever floats your boat.

Copying is dishonorable

Its a pecking order in the motor world. The copycats are at the bottom as usual. Who’s on top? L’honorable.
Whether by design or happenstance, Cars are now getting facelifts…. These facelifts are coming with more pronounced sexier bumpers, Enhanced spoilers, better yet
Cars too are getting bigger asses. The Dodge Hellcat is fine as fuck. If she was my girl I’d smack her ass every time I kiss her goodbye.
Nissan GT R has the finest affordable ass. All these other cars are Kardashians.. Cosmetic surgeries.. Butt implants like the Lexus LF. The only car left with no ass is the Subaru.

Its a coupe revolution and you know who doesn’t give a shit about whether you put jet transmissions on your cars? Its Ford.
Too busy watering their own grass to check if yours is greener. Cadence. A do what thou wilt type of cadence. The only thing they care about is Henry Ford’s dream. Fordism. What he visioned when he founded the company in 1901. Fordism is the most honorable thing in the industrial world. I say this with my chest.

Ford has the best affordable cars. There’s too many monkey see monkey doers out here but if you have a Ford no matter the kind you just have the best car around. Ford is to vehicles what Sony is to electronics / Zlatan to football.

From the
Ford GT
Ford Mustang 1st Generation to 5th
Ford Shelby
Ford Ranger
Ford Raptor
Ford Super Duty
Ford Everest
Cop cars

Even the focus & Taurus, Fiesta, Sierra are all good; so long it has this logo, its a nice car.

image

ALL these other CARS copying and evolving to other niches just show a lack of foundational philosophy making them blatantly phony thus lacking honour.

The Chevrolet are trying too hard. From their Suburban/ Silverado/ Camarro/ Corvette & all their sedans, they are all monkey see monkey do bull.

BMWs & Mercedes Benz cars were supposed to look sexy, not beastly. I donno what happened. My wildest guess, they saw the Ford Mustang and decided to copy. From the BMW M14 to the Mercedes AMG series.

I still got respect for the Audi though. You’ve seen what they’ve done to their taillights. Audi’s have the best taillights

Then there are the eccentric Swedish cars, Swedish cars like the Volvo, the Koenigsegg or the Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

I’d rather a Ford Ranger to a G Wagon. But you know, rich people are stupid.
A Ford Ranger is better than any SUV, Which I know petrol heads would disagree with. There is no use regurgitating bar-talk and trying to pass it off as sagacity borne out of deep rumination. It won’t wash.

I got news for you petrolheads. One or two of your favourite cars was probably owned by Ford.

Volvo, Aston Martin, Cadillac, Lincoln motors, LandRover/Range Rover, Mazda, Jaguar. Ford once owned these brands or still has a majority stake in these companies. Its only safe to attribute their successes to the Fordism Midas touch.

We are so tired of the Muscle Pony cars in Fast & Furious. Yeah we already accepted that Dodge Challenger is the pretty boy while the Ford Mustang is the bad boy. The Camarro is the wannabe.

I target the car follow the target.

People who call cars motis. Hii Ni nganya, moti Ni wewe.

I got 99 problems and being trapped in a decaying body in a money hungry society on a dying planet in a mysterious dimension may be one.

image

y’all must not understand how freelance this world has become. With each passing age humanity sinks deeper into materialism, and becomes less aware of its true spiritual nature.

Money is the cutest bitch in the world. My only beef with it is because of how superficial it is.
Its just cotton but it affects people like poetry. I mean its no longer underpinned by something tangible. Like gold for instance. Yeah, that’s right. Its just legal tender.

Doing it for the money. Mahn you’re such a hooker.

Scum is anything that makes man do baleful acts & dishonorable deeds.
We put profit above people, Greed above need, Rule of Gold above the Golden rule.

image
Africa got the shorter end of the stick when money became currensy. When you leverage money to your favour then swindle someone of their riches its called theft.

Like that nation that sold its minerals for paper payments.

image

image

Before being carried away however let it it be said that no matter how evil money is, don’t think being broke is holy. Money helps you lift the load of life more easily.

Money is now dangerous because it substitutes Heart, Honour & Respect.

It obfuscates Hiii Power. Heck,
Money gives you a voice, and will bestow upon you the honours of the land.  The wisdom of a poor man will go unnoticed. If he saved the entire world, no one would remember him. 

They say money runs the world, you can’t pay God with it. You can’t buy your way to heaven.

You still don’t really understand the effects of dishonor, do you?

After losing its honour and more than 2 million soldiers in the First World War,  The Germans voted Hitler in through popular vote for his hard talk, loud mouth and exotic, daring demeanour.

They thought that anything would be better than the clowns who had driven the nation into a disastrous war, someone to restore their honour. Desperation makes for strange bedfellows.

Dishonor created terrorism.
The way I see it, a kafir wronged a theist. To a theist, there is no greater dishonor than being wronged by an infidel. An infidel; an unclean pork eating individual. So to speak.
I hate the hate mahn. The kind of takfir – branding another human an apostate or kafir (infidel), making it justified and even obligatory and meritorious to kill him. I hate it. It makes my balls itch. Other than fake leather and plastics, its the other thing I hate

But honour goes a long way..

“I fancy that there are no people in the world more punctilious about their honour than the Japanese, Honour with them is placed above everything else.

Death Before Dishonour

To the Samurai, to die a good death with one’s honor intact, is the ultimate aim in a life lived according to bushidō

Under the bushidō ideal, if a samurai failed to uphold his honor he could only regain it by performing seppuku (ritual suicide). seppuku (切腹 seppuku?) or hara kiri, which allowed a disgraced samurai to regain his honor by passing into death.

Seppuku was considered the most honorable capital punishment apportioned to Samurai.

Mahn killing yourself for honour.

Placing honour above everything is called nobility.

Nobility is your soul kneeling before your body. On another plane it becomes divine. It becomes magnanimity.
Magnanimity is a latinization of the Greek word μεγαλοψυχία, megalopsychia which means greatness of soul and was identified by Aristotle as “the crowning virtue”.

Be a man of integrity. Bring honour to your name.

Respect.

CHRIST is the most disrespected deity. Look around

4 years ago someone theorised that God is big on family planning as he only has one son. I almost collapsed.

The problem is that blasphemy & sacrilege is so funny.. We are all guilty. This is an indictment of my generation.

Those Charlie Hebdo Drawings were so funny mahn. Which even incensed the ultras even more, pushing them to defend their prophet’s honour by killing those journalists.

We hail the mother but let the son’s name get tarnished. Romans 14.16 – “Do not let what you regard as good get a bad name.”

The genie is out for good. There’s no way we can impede what will happen. Next thing you’ll see is nuns with guns.

Newton’s laws: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Respect existence or expect resistance.

We all know that when u judge the actions of others to b right or wrong against ur own belief-based expectations, who they are becomes a product of who u are and helplessness is a destructive emotion. So here’s what’s gonna happen.

Catholic Fundamentalism is gonna happen.

Its only a matter of time till Catholic nuns go Qutb on y’all asses for disrespecting their Lord.

Macho nuns will decide enough is enough, spit on their hands and begin slitting throats. It ain’t no joke.

Respect lasts longer than a cheque nigga.

It has no alternative. It is a form of currensy..
Hard to earn.. So valuable because Respect begets honour.

Respect is all we really want. It is all we can hope for and all we can ask. It makes us feel better about who we are, and that we matter. It makes us visible, even if we are hungry and not a penny in our pocket. It gives us strength and the courage we need to build upon a legacy or to maintain the status quo. It makes us feel warm and safe, when our friends, partners and spouses, give respect, in not violating our trust.
Nod your head, respond with Hi hold the door open and do not profile. To give freely, that which costs us nothing, reaps abundance in return. Demonstrate respect in communication, show respect of  time, bow to respect of dreams, accept respect of responsibility. Respect beliefs, respect communities. Respect authority, respect our leaders, who we voted in. Six billion people live in our global world. We will never all agree, and we will not all be friends. We may not feel love’s passion, and we may never worship the same God, but we can respect one another, and if our demonstration stands correct, than at least some of our future problems, have already been solved.
But stripped of respect, robbed of dignity, then we are left to a savage self, an unfeeling being, with the-world-evolves-around-me thinking.

Get on your knees and pray

I love my country but that shit hole is a mess
If an MP earns Ksh 1M a month,then in 5 years you earn 60M bob. What is the rationale of spending Ksh 200M on campaigns? Public service? 🤥That question rhetorical.

We can do better is all am saying.

God bless Kendrick Lamar. Too bad They don’t give out Nobel prices for Philosophy.

As Eccentric as a Banker using the Abacus Pt 1

As Eccentric as the Individual

I think a lot of people have lost respect for the individual, you know, the individual, the person who doesn’t conform. – Erykah Badu

Being.

Outside of my family, groups repel me, because for the sake of group thought, they kill individuality, that wonderful, human oneness. Am wide open to individuals, fine with individuals, individuals are just great, every individual’s edifice gives you something, whether its a blank wall or an infinite regressive barbershop nerds, just as fascinating.
People are wonderful one at a time, each one of them has an entire hologram of the universe somewhere within them. But as soon as individuals begin to clump, as soon as they begin to clot, they change, and the larger the group, the more toxic, the more of your beauty as an individual you have to surrender for the sake of group thought, and when you suspend your individual beauty you also give up a lot of your humanity. You will do things in the name of the group that you would never do on your own; drinking/ injuring/ drugs are all part of it because you have lost your identity; because you now owe your allegiance to this thing that’s bigger and that’s beyond you.

A study by social psychologist Bryan Mullen shows that the larger the lynch mob the more brutal the lynching. Freud declares that groups are “impulsive, changeable and irritable.” Those caught up within them he asserts, can become infantile slaves to emotion. The tendency to doubt and reason is broken down when we join a group. The only place where you are not allowed to be an individual is the millitary. All am saying is stay away from from anything that suppresses your individuality.

Make your life an ongoing process of being who you are, at your deepest, most easeful levels of being. Everything other than this process is secondary.

i like people who have a sense of individuality. i love expression and anything awkward and imperfect, because that’s natural & that’s real..
Not every flower can say love, but a
rose can. Not every plant survives a
thirst, but a cactus can. Not every
retard can read, but look at you go
little buddy! I don’t care if you
lick windows, or screw farm animals.
You hang in there cupcake, because
you’re fucking eccentric, and
you’re an individual Look at you smiling at your phone you crayon eating motherfucker.

Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate. Bashing what you hate in a person will be akin to telling them not to be themselves. Telling them to suspend their individuality for you..

Individualism is a personal credo of great importance. I, for one, am a passionate believer in it. But to scientists, it has been a chimera leading them down a dead end path. Specifically, individualism has reared its head in science in the form of a simple proposition. If a piece of psychology ……… A tooth, a claw, an opposable thumb, or the neural circuit underlying an instinct has emerged from the evolutionary process, it has triumphed for a simple reason… It has helped the individual survive. More specifically, the psychological device has proven useful in the survival of a long line of individuals, each of whom maintained a competitive edge by virtue of the piece of biological equipment in question.

Leonardo da Vinci, Charlemagne, Casanova, Dedan kimathi, Kanye West, Napoleon, Constantine The Great, Opany Leonard and so on. Blow your own trumpet modesty is for suckers.

This psychological device is the ego.

Your ego is essentially a child who is very afraid of death. And sees everything in life as a serious threat. Even though the fear of death is a weakness in itself you need an ego to be an individual. An ego is not bad. it’s just a filter to narrow from the collective to the individual level. Thy ego will help you hold on to your individualism.

With the abolition of private property, then, we shall have true, beautiful, healthy Individualism. Nobody will waste his life in accumulating things, and the symbols for things. One will live. To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.

Oscar Wilde, The Soul of Man under Socialism, 1891

As Eccentric as THE SOUL: Death Vs Love

The soul is eccentric because nobody knows where it is. Your soul could be in your blood// heart// brain// gut or balls. Balls are never debatable. .

image
Balls are never debatable

The body was created to serve the spirit. The Spirit/soul was not created to serve the body. Eccentricity is the fine line between this dichotomy. It is the spirit like manifestations on the body.
The soul is invisible but eccentricity in human beings is the closest we ever get to seeing a soul.
Some souls are noble, others shallow, deep while others are weightless, unfed, suppressed. Suppressed individualism is like a body without a spirit.

This is a very dangerous situation because The soul is immortal which is akin to the Immortality of man. Not merely survival of spirits, but of one’s identity across incarnations. i’ve come to realize that once something is created, it never really ends. everything begins, & just keeps evolving into something else.

Every single soul is beautiful beyond measure because The soul is man’s spiritual bridge between his experience of the body, the physical world around him, and of God. Man’s being is an individualisation of the being of God.

Each man is a deity and can attain his power to the degree of his ability to consciously realize himself as such.

The biblical claim that “Man is made in the likeness of God,” is substantiated by the fact that there are powers which are the the sources of all events and things in the world and are shared by both God and man. The latter of course expresses these powers to a much lesser degree.

As I said earlier, God and man, like the ocean and a drop of water, have the same creative qualities (forces) but differ quantitatively in the expression of these qualities.

When we pray we speak to our souls because we have God in us. When We are told to use our talents for the glory of God it is for the God in us. God breathed his spirit into us and gave us life. So we all have God in us.

“To worship a God other than your Self is to worship a gawd inferior to your Self.”

I subscribe to the notion “The more I know self, the more I know God.”

If YOU are a true god then who do you need protection from? You need protection from LOVE. love of the vessel// the body// the flesh.

Evil comes disguised as love because it alters the dichotomy between soul and body. Love becomes evil when humans love the body more than the soul. It is evil because the flesh is an illusion. It Blurs the fact that you have something larger than life .  The flesh will rot one day; but its driving force the essense of life the soul is immortal. It is what you need to love more. This is why the soul is addressed in third person.

Only if you are well grounded in that which is larger than this life will you be able to play life with humor, knowing that each task is but a mirage of necessity.

The soul is death seeking in nature that’s why it seeks love.

I do not resonate with the concept of That food for the soul bullshit. I’ll redefine in every way what love is.
Love is death.

Heart had once been, blood’s naïve pump
Not the sacrosanct shrine, love made of it
Why bards made a world, of this mortal lump
And love, eternal sin, we all commit
Forsake yourself, for the sake of that dream!
Which never is ours, never ever, had been
Why we treasure a pain, for a love to redeem
And suckle that venom, so hard to wean
Oh! That binding need, cupid’s sinful seed
Which costs a soul, heart’s hegemony
Who’s vanquished whom, in this war decreed?
Betwixt yearning selves, so spent in spree!
Why’s love’s utopia built, on grace’s grave?
Why blooms a haunting love, on the blood of troy?
Why on heart’s debris, love’s path we pave?
Why love’s a willing, pain’s decoy, A Devil’s Ploy!

Only a human mind can invent something as insipid as love. How can something perceptible be so many things like that. That’s what makes love eccentric.

Love is a ploy a sort of curse put here to make you love life and in turn fear death. The gods hide the beauty of death by using love so that we endure life. Men go to far greater lengths to avoid what they fear than to obtain what they desire.

They fear death and desire love. Which is the wrong way to live.

On a different plane though love becomes conviction. Conviction is the greatest gift which makes love great too.
Love is great because it is the highest form of actually leaving your essense on something. Sharing love is going all the way. Giving your soul to another soul. Whichever way you do it. Sex// making out// dancing// kissing// hugging. So long as it was love shared. You, leaving your soul on another soul, actually fusing with another soul is invigorating. Sex ain’t shit until it’s with someone you’re in love with. And then, sex is everything you can’t explain.

image

Do not pity the dead. Pity the living. Above all those living without love this is because of two things 1. The value of life can be measured by how many times your soul has been deeply stirred ~ Love will do most of the stirring.
2. Whiskey songs are written by fools who wasted love.
Held hate and misery near
Without its presence, our mind and body literally switch on an arsenal of interior devices for self demolition.

There is an alchemy of souls. There will be a reason why you meet people. Either you need them to change your life or you’re the one that will change theirs.

Judgement on the value of pain
Pain makes us appreciate pleasure. sharing of Love gives humans pleasure.
We cannot be more sensitive to pleasure without being more sensitive to pain.
I think that love and pain are what maintain the balance between life and death. Death answers to pain & Pain is Love’s reminder. Only great pain is the ultimate liberator of the spirit….I doubt that such pain makes us ‘better’; but I know that it makes us more profound”. Pain is Love & death’s alter ego. Pain is the fine line between love and death.

The gods hide the beauty of death so that we endure life

Grey hair is God’s graffiti. It symbolises a person’s maintenance of the balance between love and pain.  While all fell on the swords of life and turned to dust.. He lived on to get gray hair. Gray hair is a mark of nobility. Death. Death is very noble. It is noble because it is the master of life. Love isn’t.

Death is such a profound event that no one can remain indifferent to it. It jolts one’s consciousness to the eventuality that awaits us.
Marcus Tulius Cicero, the great Roman lawyer, stated that “the life of the dead is placed on the memories of the living. The love you gave in life keeps people alive beyond their time. Anyone who was given love will always live on in another’s heart..

Is there sex after death? I doono but i think Death is one big orgasm.. A release of the soul into the proverbial Rubicon is akin to ejaculation. It has to be intense with pleasure. You wanna see Nirvana but you are afraid of death? If death is the ultimate Nirvana then life is just a parade to death. Nobody really knows what happens after death; maybe just nothingness. Exactly. That’s what makes death eccentric.

Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance

I happen to agree with most of the feminist philosophy I have read.
I agree for instance, that for the most part, men are vain, ignorant, greedy, brutal assholes who’ve just about ruined this planet
…who’ve just…who’ve just about ruined this planet because they’re afraid someone might have a bigger dick out there somewhere.
Men are basically insecure about the size of their dicks and so they go to war over it.
You don’t have to be a political scientist or a history major to see the bigger dick foreign policy theory at work.
It goes something like this…”what they have bigger dicks? Bomb them!!!”
And of course the bombs and the bullets and the rockets are all shaped like dicks.
I don’t understand that part of it, but it is part of the equation.
So I agree with that abstract. That man… men…males have pushed the technology that just about has this planet in a stranglehold.

It is through a certain imposed female incapacity that the male is “male”. The world is a big fucking phallocracy. That’s right, THERE WAS NEVER SUCH A THING AS FATHER UNTIL THE CREATION OF PATRIARCHY. You know who contributed to much of this phallocracy? The church.

Powerful men in the early Christian church ‘conned’ the world by propagating lies that devalued the female and tipped the scales in favor of the masculine. Mahn Constantine and his male successors successfully converted the world from matriarchal paganism to patriarchal Christianity by waging a campaign of propaganda that demonized the sacred feminine, obliterating the goddess from modern religion forever.

the sacred feminine and the goddess, which of course has now been lost, virtually eliminated by the Church. The power of the female and her ability to produce life was once very sacred, but it posed a threat to the rise of the predominantly male Church, and so the sacred feminine was demonized and called unclean. It was  man,  not God, who created the concept of ‘original sin,’ whereby Eve tasted of the apple and caused the downfall of the human race. Woman, once the sacred giver of life, was now the enemy. I should add, that this concept of woman as life-bringer was the foundation of ancient religion. Childbirth was mystical and powerful. Sadly, Christian philosophy decided to embezzle the female’s creative power by ignoring biological truth and making  man  the Creator. Genesis tells us that Eve was created from Adam’s rib. Woman became an offshoot of man. And a sinful one at that. Genesis was the beginning of the end for the goddess. When Christianity came along, the old pagan religions did not die easily.

Early religion was based on the divine order of Nature. The goddess Venus and the planet Venus were one and the same. The goddess had a place in the nighttime sky and was known by many names—Venus, the Eastern Star, Ishtar, Astarte—all of them powerful female concepts with ties to Nature and Mother Earth. As part of the Vatican’s campaign to eradicate pagan religions and convert the masses to Christianity, the Church launched a smear campaign against the pagan gods and goddesses, recasting their divine symbols as evil. This is very common in times of turmoil.

Nobody could deny the enormous good the modern Church did in today’s troubled world, and yet the Church had a deceitful and violent history. Their brutal crusade to “reeducate” the pagan and feminine-worshipping religions spanned three centuries, employing methods as inspired as they were horrific. The Catholic Inquisition published the book that arguably could be called the most blood-soaked publication in human history.  Malleus Maleficarum—or  The Witches’ Hammer—indoctrinated the world to “the dangers of freethinking women” and instructed the clergy how to locate, torture, and destroy them. Those deemed “witches” by the Church included all female scholars, priestesses, gypsies, mystics, nature lovers, herb gatherers, and any women “suspiciously attuned to the natural world.” Midwives also were killed for their heretical practice of using medical knowledge to ease the pain of childbirth—a suffering, the Church claimed, that was God’s rightful punishment for Eve’s partaking of the Apple of Knowledge, thus giving birth to the idea of Original Sin. During three hundred years of witch hunts, the Church burned at the stake an astounding five  million women. The propaganda and bloodshed had worked. Today’s world was living proof. Women, once celebrated as an essential half of spiritual enlightenment, had been banished from the temples of the world. There were no female Orthodox rabbis, Catholic priests, nor Islamic clerics. The once hallowed act of Hieros Gamos—the natural sexual union between man and woman through which each became spiritually whole—had been recast as a shameful act. Holy men who had once required sexual union with their female counterparts to commune with God now feared their natural sexual urges as the work of the devil, collaborating with his favorite accomplice… woman. Not even the feminine association with the  left-hand  side could escape the Church’s defamation. In France and Italy, the words for “left”—gauche  and  sinistra—came to have deeply negative overtones, while their right-hand counterparts rang of  righteousness, dexterity, and correctness. To this day, radical thought was considered  left  wing, irrational thought was  left  brain, and anything evil,  sinister. The days of the goddess were over. The pendulum had swung. Mother Earth had become a  man’s world, and the gods of destruction and war were taking their toll. The male ego had spent two millennia running unchecked by its female counterpart. It was this obliteration of the sacred feminine in modern life that had caused what the Hopi Native Americans called  koyanisquatsi—”life out of balance”—an unstable situation marked by testosterone-fueled wars, a plethora of misogynistic societies, and a growing disrespect for Mother Earth.

The ancients envisioned their world in two halves—masculine and feminine. Their gods and goddesses worked to keep a balance of power. Yin and yang. When male and female were balanced, there was harmony in the world. When they were unbalanced, there was chaos.

image
Yin & Yang

Again on my Taoism polemics. Taoism is a gender-neutral religion. This is implied by the concept of Yin Yang which teaches that masculine and feminine are complementary, inseparable and equal.

Wanna know something perfect about the church? The Rosary. Mmh..

Women are fantastic creatures! Many do not realize how fantastic they are, and certainly most men do not. Women are much like their clitoris: there is much more inside than outside.
Hindu traditions still recognize the sacredness of the yoni – a Sanskrit word with meanings not only of cunt, but also abode, source, spring, home. Pre-Indo-European peoples understood the yoni as the “concrete manifestation” of Shakti, “the life-giving, animating power of the cosmos” (Margolin, 1986, 533). This knowledge has not been completely lost, but it has gone underground,

image
The blossoming flower resembles the female genitalia, the sublime blossom from which all mankind enters the world. And if you've ever seen any paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe, you'll know exactly what I mean.

the earth is understood “as a religious form . . . repository of a wealth of sacred forces” (Eliade 1958: 242). The beloved dirt, soil or earth, has been understood as the very flesh of Goddess, the cosmic womb/cunt that begets us and to which we ultimately return at death.

If God had a gender he has to be androgynous. A being that is in tune with the  balance  between male and female. It was believed that a human soul could not be enlightened unless it had both male and female elements.

Orgasm as prayer

Is it surprising we feel conflicted about sex? Our ancient heritage and our very physiologies tell us sex is natural—a cherished route to spiritual fulfillment—and yet modern religion decries it as shameful, teaching us to fear our sexual desire as the hand of the devil.

Hieros Gamos is Greek, It means  sacred marriage. Historically, intercourse was the act through which male and female experienced God. The ancients believed that the male was spiritually incomplete until he had carnal knowledge of the sacred feminine. Physical union with the female remained the sole means through which man could become spiritually complete and ultimately achieve  gnosis—knowledge of the divine. Since the days of Isis, sex rites had been considered man’s only bridge from earth to heaven. By communing with woman, man could achieve a climactic instant when his mind went totally blank and he could see God. Orgasm as prayer? Physiologically speaking, the male climax was accompanied by a split second entirely devoid of thought. A brief mental vacuum. A moment of clarity during which God could be glimpsed. Meditation gurus achieved similar states of thoughtlessness without sex and often described Nirvana as a neverending spiritual orgasm. It’s important to remember that the ancients’ view of sex was entirely opposite from ours today. Sex begot new life—the ultimate miracle—and miracles could be performed only by a god. The ability of the woman to produce life from her womb made her sacred. A god. Intercourse was the revered union of the two halves of the human spirit—male and female—through which the male could find spiritual wholeness and communion with God.

The next time you find yourself with a woman, look in your heart and see if you cannot approach sex as a mystical, spiritual act. Challenge yourself to find that spark of divinity that man can only achieve through union with the sacred feminine.

I ain’t got no problem with Azealia Banks with her cunt it up campaign

Botticelli, Poussin, Bernini, Mozart, and Victor Hugo are men that all whispered of the quest to restore the banished sacred feminine. Maybe they were tired of footing the bill, the constant need to be strong and have money, tired of always providing, tired of doing all the heavy manual work, tired of thrusting whereas she could also hop on it and ride it cowgirl. A phallocracy is fucking tiresome.

I have a concern over the Church’s elimination of the sacred feminine from modern religion. I am simply echoing some of their shared frustrations with the modern Church’s demonization of the goddess. We are equal. Foot the fucking bill, yo hop on it cowgirl.

We are starting to sense the dangers of our history… and of our destructive paths. We are beginning to sense the need to restore the sacred feminine. The gender 2/3 rule. The women reps. I am singing her song. The world needs modern troubadours.

Wei Wu Wei “Action Without Action”

Preamble: The more freedom we have, the more choices available to the people. The fewer freedoms we have, the faster hypocrisy will eat away at the heart of our society.

                  LIVE AND LET LIVE

Lead by the gun and you will die by the gun. Garbage In Garbage Out. If you do nothing, nothing bad comes out. Wei Wu Wei.

image

Taoism is not a mere matter of willing. It is a principle of life.
One of Taoism’s most important concepts is wu wei , which is sometimes translated as “non-doing” or “non-action.” A better way to think of it, however, is as a paradoxical “Action of non-action.”  Wei Wu Wei refers to the cultivation of a state of being in which our actions are quite effortlessly in alignment with the ebb and flow of the elemental cycles of the natural world. It is a kind of “going with the flow” that is characterized by great ease and awake-ness, in which – without even trying – we’re able to respond perfectly to whatever situations arise.

As I understand it, wei wu wei speaks mainly to these things, which we fool ourselves into thinking we can change through action, when nonaction will work much better. Wei wu wei helps us remember that misdirected effort in these areas is counterproductive.

So, in theory at least, Taoists tend not to initiate action – but wait for events to make action necessary – and avoid letting their own desires and compulsions push them into doing things.

There was a Greek-speaking Stoic philosopher called Epictetus AD 55 – 135) who actually subconsciously taught wei wu wei. Epictetus taught that philosophy is a way of life and not just a theoretical discipline. To Epictetus, all external events are beyond our control; we should accept whatever happens calmly and dispassionately. However, individuals are responsible for their own actions, which they can examine and control through rigorous self-discipline.

The simplest interpretation of wei-wu-wei is that it means doing nothing, or as little as possible.

image
Wei Wu Wei

A more common interpretation of wei-wu-wei sees it as action which does not force but yields. Rather than being a version of doing nothing, this might be called “the action of passivity.” Under the weight of a heavy snowfall, pine branches break off, but by bending, the willow can drop its burden and spring up again.

If one leaves the people alone and lets them get on with it, social problems will resolve themselves — perhaps because political interference is more often the cause of such problems than their solution.

Taoism requires human beings to be humble and recognise that not only are they NOT obliged to make the world a better place, they are actually so ignorant of what is really happening that they are likely to make things worse if they do take action.

So wu-wei is a recommendation to be soft and yielding, as Lao Tzu’s favorite metaphor water (joh). Often the character joh,  is translated as “weakness,”  but “weakness” has unavoidably negative connotations which do not seem right in this context — especially since joh is usually a means to conquer in the end. It is because water is the softest and most yielding thing that it is able to overcome the hard and strong.

Wei Wu Wei – Action without Action

The constant and unmistakable teaching of the Tao Te Ching is that humans are indeed capable of intervening in life’s events, but the evidence of life, which humans constantly ignore, is that such intervention is destructive to all involved, and that we therefore have a moral duty to refrain from taking such actions.

America funded Islamists that would later come back to bite them in the ass in the form of 9/11.

The Soviet invasion in 1979, and the 10 years of occupation that followed, provided a magnet for would-be jihadists from around the Arab world.

Some 35,000 of them flocked to Afghanistan during that period, to join the jihad and help the mainly Islamist Afghan mujahideen guerrillas turn the country into Russia’s Vietnam.

Ironically, they found themselves on the same team as the Americans. The CIA’s Operation Cyclone channelled hundreds of millions of dollars through Pakistan to militant Afghan mujahedeen leaders due to the American deep rooted hate for the Soviet at that time.

It was in Afghanistan that virtually all the major figures in the new jihadist world cut their teeth. They helped shape events there in the aftermath of the Soviet withdrawal in 1989, a period that saw the emergence of al-Qaeda as a vehicle for a wider global jihad, and Afghanistan provided a base for it.
By the time the Taliban took over in 1996, they were virtually in partnership with Osama Bin Laden and his men, and it was from there that al-Qaeda launched its fateful 9/11 attack in 2001.
The formative Afghan experience provided both the combat-hardened salafist jihadist leaders and the strategists who were to play an instrumental role in the emergence of the IS of today.

So basically America played itself.

When the kitchen is already flooded, the bureaucrats propose turning on even more faucets.

WEI WU WEI

“We must accept the fact that Islam has a crisis,” says a senior Sunni politician in Iraq.
“IS is not a freak. Look at the roots, the people, the aims. If you don’t deal with the roots, the situation will be much more dangerous. The world has to get rid of IS, but needs a new deal: reformation, in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, al-Azhar [the ancient seat of Sunni Islamic learning and authority in Cairo].”
“You can’t kill all the Muslims, you need an Islamic reformation. But Saudi and Qatari money is blotting out the voices so we can’t get anywhere. It’s the curse of the Arab world, too much oil, too much money.”

I’ll tell you what, leave them alone. Wei Wu fucking Wei

IS took up the cause of punishing the West and other outsiders for their actions in the region over the past century:
◾ the carve-up by the colonial powers 100 years ago, drawing a border between Iraq and Syria which IS has now erased
◾ the creation of Israel under the British mandate for Palestine, and its subsequent unswerving political and financial support by the US
◾ Western (and indeed Russian) backing for corrupt and tyrannical Arab regimes
◾ the Western invasion and destruction of Iraq on the flimsiest of pretexts, with the death of uncounted thousands of Iraqis
◾ the Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo prisoner abuse scandals….

They are basically punishing them for meddling

Taoism requires human beings to be humble and recognise that not only are they NOT obliged to make the world a better place, they are actually so ignorant of what is really happening that they are likely to make things worse if they do take action.

George W. Bush and Tony Blair’s actions in Iraq were directly responsible for the mayhem we now see in the Middle East. Despite anti-war protests by millions of people around the globe, the former United States president and the former British Prime Minister, respectively, decided in 2003 to go to war with Iraq, without United Nations Security Council approval.

At that time, not even pleas by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan were enough to deter these warmongers from invading Iraq. They justified their actions by claiming that the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein had “weapons of mass destruction” and was harbouring Al Qaeda. None of these claims were found to be true.

On the contrary, Saddam’s ouster paved the path for Al Qaeda to lay down roots in Iraq, something that would have been inconceivable during his regime.

No one is quite sure of the numbers, but it is estimated that the Iraq war led to the deaths of between 100,000 and 600,000 people, most of them civilians.

When Saddam was captured, tried and sentenced to death by a kangaroo court, sectarian violence between Sunnis, Shias and Kurds broke out.

Then, Saddam’s Baath party loyalists joined forces with Sunni jihadists to form the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, one of the biggest threats the world is currently facing. The conflicts in Iraq and Syria have led to an unprecedented refugee crisis that has not been witnessed since the Second World War.

image
The reality in Syria

Under Saddam’s tightly-controlled Baath Party regime, the Sunnis enjoyed pride of place over the majority Shia, who have strong ties with their co-religionists across the border in Iran.
The US-led intervention disempowered the Sunnis, creating massive resentment and providing fertile ground for the outside salafist jihadists to take root in.

When the US-led coalition destroyed the Iraqi state in 2003, it was breaking down the wall that was containing Iran, the region’s Shia superpower, seen as a threat by the Saudis and most of their Sunni Gulf partners since its Islamic revolution in 1979.
Iran had for years been backing anti-Saddam Iraqi Shia factions in exile. Through those groups, the empowerment of the majority Shia community in Iraq after 2003 gave Iran unrivalled influence over Iraqi politics.

Bush has been an avid reader throughout his adult life, preferring biographies and histories. During his time as president, Bush read the Bible daily. He also read 14 Lincoln biographies and, during the last three years of his presidency, he reportedly read 186 books. Trump busted this as the biggest lie. I concur, considering he never stumbled upon any wei wu wei scripts.

If everyone just remained in their own borders and stopped meddling. Why do all the dirty work? Russia sleeps next to Afghanistan. France, Germany are all next to the middle East but American soldiers flew over the vast Atlantic into foreign territories of the Middle East to meddle. They are victims of their own propaganda that since they are the largest economy, we should meddle. A free hegemony ticket. They have fed on their own ideologies and internalized their own propaganda now they are victims.

That’s tantamount to claiming that having more money than your brother automatically makes you his Father. As absurd as it is pragmatically.

The US is required by law to spend a mandatory amount on certain programs, like Social Security, a federal welfare program.
“If the US spent zero on Social Security and defense, the percentage of the total that goes [toward] infrastructure would be higher,”  – Puentes. Look at China putting their money into good use because they did not meddle.

When the kitchen is already flooded, the bureaucrats propose turning on even more faucets.

Don’t throw yourself into the fire then romanticize the pain.

Ten months after vowing to “degrade and ultimately destroy” the organisation, President Obama ruefully acknowledged that IS “has been particularly effective at reaching out to and recruiting vulnerable people around the world including here in the United States, and they are targeting Muslim communities around the world”.
And he put his finger on the real challenge, monumentally greater than the comparatively simple task of defeating IS militarily:
“Ideologies are not defeated with guns, they are defeated by better ideas, a more attractive and more compelling vision,” he said.

Have you tried wei wu wei bruh.

The US and its allies were powerless to halt IS advances in Libya.

Democracy promotion has its naysayers. Regime change schemes in the name of democracy have thrown African countries like Libya to the abyss of anarchy.
The brutal, corrupt dictatorships which the U.S/ NATO shook have either fragmented into chaos and sectarian and tribal upheaval, like Syria itself, Libya, Yemen and (with Western intervention) Iraq, or the “deep states” of their former regimes came back, even more harshly in the case of Egypt, more gently in the case of Tunisia.

The Saudis made a huge mistake when they backed the overthrow of the elected Muslim Brotherhood president in Egypt and the subsequent crackdown on the movement, which has pushed political Islam into the arms of the radicals.
“There were no pictures of Isis, Bin Laden or al-Qaeda in Tahrir Square,” he says. “It was an opportunity for democracy in the Middle East, but we made a historical blunder for which we are all paying now.”

WEI WU WEI.

Today’s presidential candidates are playing recklessly with free trade, alliances and immigration. They are pushing the misguided notion that high trade barriers will restore jobs and prosperity to the middle class, and scorning old alliances and new immigrants. These protectionist and nativist ideas aren’t new; they’re as old as the Greeks. Athens tried them but it created international disorder and the opposite of the desired result.

Adam Smith’s thesis that the free market makes societies prosperous because it enables specialisation and division of labour.

Wei Wu Wei.

North Korea and weapons of mass destruction

North Korea is like a kid. A very bored kid. Like the toddler who keeps testing the parents’ limits of tolerance, North Korea is bent on discovering just how close to the edge is too close.

On January 6, 2007, the North Korean government confirmed that it had nuclear weapons. This was a test to see the world’s reaction, nothing happened. In April 2009, reports surfaced that North Korea has become a “fully fledged nuclear power”, an opinion shared by International Atomic Energy Agency. It even went ahead to test.

On January 6, 2016 in Korea, the United States Geological Survey detected a magnitude 5.1 seismic disturbance, reported to be a fourth underground nuclear test. North Korea claimed that this test involved a hydrogen bomb.

On February 7, 2016, roughly a month after the alleged hydrogen bomb test, North Korea claimed to have put a satellite into orbit around the Earth. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe had warned the North to not launch the rocket, and if it did and the rocket violated Japanese territory, it would be shot down. Nevertheless, North Korea launched the rocket anyway, claiming the satellite was purely intended for peaceful, scientific purposes. Several nations, including the United States, Japan, and South Korea, have criticized the launch, and despite North Korean claims that the rocket was for peaceful purposes, it has been heavily criticized as an attempt to perform an ICBM test under the guise of a peaceful satellite launch. China also criticized the launch, however urged “the relevant parties” to “refrain from taking actions that may further escalate tensions on the Korean peninsula”. Apparently, this is proof that China understands Wei Wu Wei better.

If one leaves the people alone and lets them get on with it, social problems will resolve themselves — perhaps because political interference is more often the cause of such problems than their solution.

80% of the population in China practices Taoism; that means that Wei Wu Wei is deeply inculcated in the masses’ majority.

Cannabis grows naturally throughout southwestern China and it is legally cultivated in some areas for its use in commercial rope manufacturing. Wei Wu Wei has made drug usage become so trivial an issue in China through ostensibly decriminalising it.

China is technically the source of drugs and controlled substances in the world but they don’t pose a major drug problem compared to the countries they export to. Wanna know why, Wei Wu Wei.
It is a major source of precursor chemicals necessary for the production of cocaine, heroin, MDMA and crystal meth. Much of these precursor chemicals go to Mexico, El Chapo, Escobar, Heisenberg where ya at? We finally knew where you get your pseudo. China is also a leading exporter of bulk ephedrine and has been a source of much of the pseudoephedrine subsequently used to manufacture methamphetamine destined for the U.S.

China the source country for these drugs experiences a lower usage and addiction problem than the destination for these drugs — Mexico/ Colombia/ Dominican Republic/ U.S.A/ El Salvador. Do you know why? Wei Wu Wei.

In particular, favoring drug legalization does not imply approval of drug use.

Eric Wert on the legalisation of marijuana.: ” I have seen the therapeutic effects first hand and it is obviously beneficial. It’s totally legal where I live, here in Portland, and seriously, it’s not a big deal. All the people who used it before can do it more safely; anyone who didn’t use it doesn’t have to start. Sending people to prison for something so innocuous is insane.”

What should be happening is harm reduction. Like Cannabis is already liberalized this should chart campaigns for the usage of bongs which cool and to some extent filters the smoke.

Where availability is limited, users of heroin and other drugs frequently share the syringes and use them more than once. As a result, infections such as HIV or hepatitis C can spread from user to users through the reuse of syringes contaminated with infected blood. The principles of harm reduction propose that syringes should be easily available or at least available through a needle and syringe programmes (NSP). Where syringes are provided in sufficient quantities, rates of HIV are much lower than in places where supply is restricted. Wei wu wei.

THE SINISTER WEI WU WEI

Schadenfreude (; German: [ˈʃaːdn̩ˌfʁɔɪdə]) is pleasure derived (pleasure derived) from the misfortunes of others. This word is taken from German and literally means “harm-joy”. It is the feeling of joy or pleasure when one sees another fail or suffer misfortune. According to me, schadenfreude is a sinister variant of wei wu wei. That makes George Carlin subconsciously a Taoist.

George Carlin professed a hearty schadenfreude in watching the rich spectrum of humanity slowly self-destruct, in his estimation, of its own design, His delivery frequently treated these subjects in a misanthropic and nihilistic fashion, all sharing the overall theme of (in his words) “humanity’s bullshit”, which might include murder, genocide, war, rape, corruption, religion, the destruction of nature and other aspects of human civilization.

He said, “I look at it this way… For centuries now, man has done everything he can to destroy, defile, and interfere with nature: clear-cutting forests, strip-mining mountains, poisoning the atmosphere, over-fishing the oceans, polluting the rivers and lakes, destroying wetlands and aquifers… so when nature strikes back, and smacks him on the head and kicks him in the nuts, I enjoy that. I have absolutely no sympathy for human beings whatsoever. None. And no matter what kind of problem humans are facing, whether it’s natural or man-made, I always hope it gets worse.”- George Carlin.

There have been 5 major extinctions on earth.

The 1st Mass Extinction- the world cooled drastically and ice sheets spread from the poles precipitating the second extinction.
The Ordovician Ordeal- 85% of marine species were wiped out leaving only fish.
The Permean Extinction- worst mass extinction in the planet’s history, obliterating up to 96% of marine species and similar % of land animals. In the aftermath, the 1st dinosaurs evolved.
The Triassic Extinction- 80% of species extinct including the top predators of giant reptiles called icthyosaurs. In the aftermath, the dinosaurs became the dominant land animals and eventually reached Titanic sizes. The biggest species 59 tonnes.
The fifth extinction- The death of dinosaurs. 65 million years ago, a huge chunk of rock from outer space smashed into what is now Mexico. The explosion was devastating but the longer term effects were worse. Dust was thrown into the upper atmosphere and blocked out sunlight, and in the ensuing cold and darkness, earth suffered its fifth and last mass extinction. The dinosaurs were the most famous casualties but pterosaurs and giant marine reptiles were also wiped out.
This caused mammals to evolve their ability of nourishing their young inside their womb just like modern humans.

All these extinctions were natural.

Our species, homo sapiens is ridiculously young. We have only existed for a fifth of a million years. In that time we have expanded from our African birthplace to reach every continent, and even outer space. Our activities have precipitated the sixth mass extinction and unleashed the fastest episode of climate change in Earth’s history. Yet we are also the only species that has ever managed to piece together the history of earth.

The dynamics of hardheadedness psychology show that people tend to cling more to that which they have been asked to abandon.. They also tend to incline towards trying that which they were asked not to try. Adam and Eve. Wei Wu Wei.

Even Alicia Keys knew the girl was on fire but what did she do?  Wrote a song instead of saving the poor girl

Go buy that popcorn with your 3D glasses and watch. Sometimes it’s okay to watch the world self immolate. Carlin gave us leeway.

If the truth is not residing in comfort in our heads, then something else less pleasant will take residence there.

There is a famous idiom often misattributed to Otto von Bismark (it was in fact by the less famous American poet John Godfrey Saxe) to the effect that if you are a lover of laws or sausages, the less you know about how they are made, the better.
The idiom seeks to exhort those with freedom of knowing or choice, not those to whom the information has been forcibly removed and hidden from them by the government.

Forbidden Knowledge isn’t really as
powerful as people make it to be.
^This knowledge is just simply
knowledge hidden and put under a
table (metaphorically speaking).
The True Knowledge, the Knowledge
that is seen as a threat to the system,
is knowledge we can Apply. This is
why useless information is forcefully
taught in schools. They much rather
create docile machines who easily
conform to authority and recurring
debt/dead end job industries. They
prefer this rather than empowering

Revolutionaries who take no shit and
stand up for what’s right, just, and
harmonious for all.

Someone once stated that “our problem is that we are not angry enough to create a life-changing revolution like other parts of the world.” That is poppycock.
The Kenyan people are in boiling umbrage.. The only problem is that they don’t know where to drive their angers at due to tribal divisions. The main reason for this is that the basis of philosophies on governance was banned by President Moi thus creating an information vacuum and a lack of vision basis among the masses. This basis of philosophies was Marxism.
In short, a revolution should be theoretical too, you cannot slave the people with what they don’t understand.
In Friedrich Engel’s position that there were three forms of Social Democratic struggle: political, economic and theoretical.

Koffi Anan stated, “The world is experiencing a crisis of leadership not a crisis of knowledge.”
I will be derogatory with Moi because as a natural predisposition, history never treated abrogators of knowledge and reason with acquiescence.
This is of course, not a comment from a moral standpoint but one of pure pragmatism. Mainly I am critical of any leader who capitalises on the ignorance of the masses. Ignorance that he directly/ indirectly caused.

Field Marshal Musa Mwariama (1928–1989) was the leader of the Mau Mau on the Meru side of Mt.Kenya. This guy clearly shows signs of PTSD. People like Mwariama didn't have to get PTSD for us to be tacit in Oppression by the Government

Kenyans had lived under two successive  autocratic one-man dictatorships. Kenya’s first President, Jomo Kenyatta, had started off as a nationalist and benevolent dictator before mutating into a chauvinistic bone-breaking autocrat that rued any dissent. He, like his successor, the semi-literate Moi, had transformed Kenya into a country  that the late Josiah Mwangi Kariuki would famously lament, before his assassination in 1975, was “A  country  of ten millionaires and ten million beggars.” Under both Kenyatta and Moi, Kenyans had been turned against each other through artificial ethnic manipulation, competition and rivalries.
Kenyatta’s death came timely to avoid a further dampening of his legacies. However, excuse my French, Moi is the most stupid, non-visionary President Kenya ever had. I am 19 years old, asking about Moi from my elders, the only good thing I hear about him is the Nyayo milk. He was a semiliterate paranoid jamaa who ruled the country like an animal farm, mutilating all hard earned struggles and achievements of independence. His paranoia and illiteracy caused the country a lot of troubles, still felt to date.

In looking at how he got to power, then you will understand his paranoia. As owaah tells..
Moi knew he was a marked man, since Kenyatta had been dying for sometime now but no one could plan a transition (Njonjo, ever-so-creative, had charged some guys with ‘imagining the death of the president’ which it turns out, is a crime against a deity) so he had gone to his Nakuru home to hide. When he had to come to Nairobi to either be sworn in or executed in what would be today Moi Avenue. There was a militia group called Ngoroko, formed to ensure the presidency was not his and they had erected several road blocks to ensure Moi  did not make it to Nairobi.
He was stuffed into the boot of a Peugeot 404 , his long hardened Kalenjin ass travelled almost all the way to Nairobi in that boot. And that was back when it took about almost five hours to travel the distance. Now, tell me if that will not cause you paranoia.
Ngoroko or not, .. One of the most egregious acts committed by Mr Moi’s government was the banning of all Marxism teachings and literature in all learning institutions and Libraries after the attempted coup in 1982. This created a serious information vacuum.

Marxism wasn’t designed to be arcane, abstruse or reserved for the enlightened few Political Science/ Philosophy and Economics students. Marxism is esoteric because Moi made it so.

During those days, Kenyatta, then Moi had banned Col. Muammar Gaddafi’s Green Book, Karl Marx’s  books including  Das Capital and  The Communist Manifesto, George Orwell’s  Animal Farm and  1984, Ngugi wa  Thiong’o’s  Devil on the Cross,  I Will  Marry When  I Want,  Petals of Blood,  Detained: A  Writer’s  Prison Diary,  Barrel of a Pen,  Decolonising the Mind and  Matigari  and many other books, especially those that were  deemed Marxist, Socialist or revolutionary.  The repressive  authorities used the  Penal Code  and autocratic fiat to prescribe anything they deemed wasn’t in the interest of “public order,  public health, public morals or the security of Kenya”.  These were  vague, general and over-broad catch-all phrases that were  used with predictable regularity to suppress and control the country  in order to perpetuate the illegitimate power wielders of the day.

Moi even banned Shakespeare. But fast forward to the 1980s, The British Foreign Secretary comes to Kenya and he is told Shakespeare is no longer studied in our schools. He mentions it to the President, Moi talks about it publicly and decrees that the British playwright be brought back to our curriculum.

Then KICD Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development propeses Julius Caesar, But somebody in the Ministry of Education shoots down their proposal, thinking that in this play Shakespeare advocates violent revolutions. A correct reading of the play would have told this official that, in fact, the English Playwright poses the eternal question: Are violent revolutions justified? Anyway, they then propose Romeo and Juliet as a set book, this being a play that deals with the emotional turbulence in teenagers. On the flip side, Luckily, this time their recommendation is accepted; and this marks the return of the giant of English Literature.

YOU’RE LIVING AT A TIME OF EXTREMISM,
A TIME OF REVOLUTION, A TIME WHEN
THERE’S GOT TO BE A CHANGE. PEOPLE
IN POWER HAVE MISUSED IT AND NOW
THERE HAS TO BE A CHANGE AND A
BETTER WORLD HAS TO BE BUILT
AND THE ONLY WAY IT’S GOING TO BE
BUILT IS WITH EXTREME METHODS. AND
I FOR ONE WILL JOIN IN WITH ANYONE
I DON’T CARE WHAT COLOR YOU ARE–
AS LONG AS YOU WANT TO CHANGE
THIS MISERABLE CONDITION THAT
EXISTS ON THIS EARTH.
MALCOLM X

The more freedom we have, the more choices available to the people. The fewer freedoms we have, the faster hypocrisy will eat away at the heart of our society.

Our parents were denied Marxist stuff and look at the country now, tribalism, corruption, government debt, unemployment and myopic political selfishness have taken sway. What if the key to the third Kenyan Liberation lies in these philosophies and books?  Yeah, yeah ignorance is bliss but information won’t kill us too.

If any of y’all wants any book on Marxism, matter of factly, if any of you wants any of those books named above, reach out to me with the book’s name on my Whatsapp – 0702161160 – My word is that I will send it to you PDF versions free of charge.
Lets see if these information that Moi banned will kill us.
