Symbols are underestimated and their affect upon us, and what they do in us? Words are symbols and have similar present and latent power. Saying we watch/listen but don't pay attention or see through the bull., can be accurate and truth but is equal and deceptive in the residue and damage done.
Our response makes all and any difference, while compromise and acquiescence to lies, dulls our mind and causes us to disconnect. Why is ignorance a problem? Leads to ambivalence and when the good times stop rolling will lead to shame. Turbulent times ahead will crack-up more or less and our history of discernment and, ...care, for life and liberty.
Who might imagine writing for are the over-worked young families and children, driving ages to attend a freedom rally. Met one or two when attending and demonstrates the possibility and such priorities for people with little 'spare' time.
I was in Nashville, Tennessee last year. After the show I went to a Waffle House. I'm not proud of it, I was hungry. And I'm alone, I'm eating and I'm reading a book, right? Waitress walks over to me: 'Hey, whatcha readin' for?'
Bill Hicks goes on to mull the weird, and not, "what... is he reading?"
The joke's dated in saying he's reading not to end up in a job like hers. How about why the truth-and-justice activity? One possible answer is the cost to come when the lights get dim and 'trouble a mill' grips us and we're shaken out of the 'sunny selfishness and virile indifference', (a phrase from GK Chesterton).
Bob Dylan came up with a lesson and, 'so let us not talk falsely, the hour is getting late'. It will matter unless it's, go the other way, and nothing does? We choose, and in months to come, make for a direction -or- by default slip and slide for grim-ways inside as we face the ones outside?
Symbols stare their evil into us, unless we do what ought and must —stand UP?
The mask, the plastic barriers, and the Ukrainian flag. Three diabolical idols and destroyers.
Intended to get more from George Eliason on TNT Radio after hearing my second history lesson from him that opened up the land and area now called Ukraine.
Last year his spot on Sunday Wire gave me 1920s to today and the ideological gang holding the people to ransom, in a civil-like conflict and on to war. One a week or two ago took it from the 1600s and all about the church and apostate version. Last night thought to get more from George but on two outings have decided to dump anymore TNT Radio listens.
First off is TNT's take-down of Dolores Cahill shows from their archive, although she was on another presenters one in the last little-while. The deleted lot had talk that assume is too hot for their kitchen and off any menu on False Flag/ Fake Events with Ole Dammegard, and the two roundtable sessions on Germs.
Add to this George and guest, and joined-by news presenter, drove me to frustration and boredom. Off into the weeds about the attempted sourcing of where the alleged C-19 came from? What a yawn and pointless exercise. Soon into 2020 the idea there was a novel virus became difficult to sustain. Whilst we now can read the overall death rates - aside from a April spike and OAPs shoved into care home - were lower than normal. The news(?) blared about deaths and was all a now, retrospect and figures' undisputed, barrage of lies.
Guess am off all-audio, although will re-look at Ukraine and do a perspective in the next month.
To keep up the 'two opposed' principle will look at Substack'rs 1 and if need be and there are contrary voices, at least one and Graham Seibert living in Ukraine, (like George).
Overall have been moving away from Russia being a bulwark and intent on protecting the world from the worst scenarios. The Syria conflict began to reveal this and then C-19 put the kibosh on redeemable Putin. In 2022, the smallest burst of video and off to be tortured Russian POWs is a haunt and as bad an image/memory going. An alert about George is his use of Hitler as the example of a war criminal. Although in his reading of history the Ukrainian Nationalist historical-driven evil cultists were the perpetrators of said-crimes.
On 'Avoidance'2 got into the compatible or idealist approaches. In the case of war in Ukraine, am keen this holds and sits with 'two opposed' as principles. Did more Truthscoop posts from 2015 on Putin etc., than almost all other subjects. Sought to suss his Christian-named faith, and what's he doing and military intentions? Balance and crit., various commentators; read ongoing actions and read-back through older history; was it a different than KGB mission; or did the book 'Old Lies For New' have him/it down?
Questions over, what could be tactical compromise on the Kremlin and Putin's influence, in the face of provocation and unmitigated terrorism from the West. Not a Nuclear-bomb-believer3 for years but what's the potential difference and sanctioning, let alone (the UK) sending, depleted uranium? As criminal as it gets.
With TNT slashing-challenges, can't think what else is worth a listen? Got commitments to write on this and that but Ukraine is one to go/do.
Into eat up and spit out where necessary. Ok until censorship is brought in. Not for me to have qualms about Deloris guesting on TNT, and say, Patrick Henningsen fronting shows there. Best they do but can't swallow the endless blabbing about the latest TV-led who-ha and find-the-virus starting place and people? Weaponised particles, that aren't yet(?) explained through transparent and rigorous science.4
If Terrain theory is flawed, bring out the Germ theorists to counter? If Hitler is the be-all and baddest man in history, bring on the sources and data in comparison to... Churchill (unexpurgated), or how about Russian troops and Operation Hellstorm, and one example? Troops going to war, in more recent times, have been jacked-up on drugs, stimulants, and other mind-altering drivers.
We do well to look at what happens in reality, or resign ourselves to fantasy Hollywood and the goodies are so good and oh, them bad lot, are all that and alone. A wolf and three-little piggy level, demines and dements us.
The big uptake and yellow and blue flag waving is it's for people who don't know and yet want to support war, hate, acts of horror and nothing just.
There's nothing kind or compassionate about 'supporting Ukraine' when it's nothing but...
Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
but whoever hates correction is stupid.
One for the road and Sam on it. Not that I'll get to watch and hear but hey, y'might...?
