Bradley Manning... Whistle-blows/exposes criminal activity and he goes to jail as the criminals exposed remain free. This is how you know that the criminals are in control. In Bradley's case... of the military!
A criminal military? Now there's a pleasant thought/concept! I would add to this criminal news media also as way too many people do not even know about this.
Ok... I suppose the first, and maybe most obvious, question about this topic in this forum might be "WTF is this all about!?!?!" Or maybe.. "He's finally snapped and is now babbling about inconsequential."
Maybe.. in all honesty that thought has crossed my mind, more than once, that I might have "snapped" years ago.
...You're all familiar with this popular expression, no? Basically the target subject of the expression is completely false?
Now I know this is an "absolute" declaration and I've learned there are very few "absolutes". It is also used many times as an exaggeration and overstatement as it may be used here to come. I prefer to think of it as hyperbolic and emphatic.. making a point. "The Point" is what is important here. Not that it may be poor usage of grammar therefore point not heard, not taken.
Then there is "Truth" itself. Talk about elusive critters to hunt for. Many times we're lucky if we even get a glimpse of this one much less capture it. A lot depends on the hunter's abilities, conditioning, desires, etc., rendering it's definition somewhat subjective. Who's truth? My truth? Your truth? Their truth? It's all so confusing...
This beast of destruction system that is upon us all is able to do what it does best, worst for us, only because we, the people, not only allow/accept it... we will actually participate in the beast's heinous desires and needs... enable it!
Remi Kanazi of Poetic Injustice is a Palestinian/American poet gone activist.
Artists are those within our society that have a special insight, understanding, knowledge... vision... that the rest of us do not see with such ease as they do. In many cases these artists also have the ability to express and share what they know with the rest of us via “artistic expression”. Their gift is two-fold. They have the vision and are able to express it artistically with the rest of us to be become recognized by the masses for their gift as an artist.
There are also many that have the “vision” but not the gift for expressing it. Would they also be considered an “Artist”?
Alas for these artists what they get to see and know many times is not easy to carry. Just holding a vision of theirs can be... personally challenging? Problematic? Hard to accept? Hence the rise of what we all know as the “tortured” artist. Some one staggering around under the weight of what the rest of us do not carry.
We all know this instinctive these people are the visionaries and prophets among us. Not only do they deserve latitude from us but, more importantly, they deserve our attention, to be heard, what they are expressing we can all learn from their gift.
Remi Kanazi: Refuse
You have a choice. They want you to go blow up innocent civilians/countries?? Refuse to pull that trigger. Pull it yourself... of course we all know that will NEVER happen.
