When the System Worships Mammon the Children End Up Paying the Price

» It Gets Worse Before It Gets Better

These mature life-experiences that we encounter while growing up can now help us deal with these injustices in ways that we were not able to handle back when we were small and defenseless.

Though I admit that, in the short-term, it can definitely suck gigantic goose eggs. You are staring at these ugly scenes openly and honestly and feeling all the effects come swarming back from the abyss.

Ellen DeGeneres falls into a thousand mile stare while talking to Letterman about sexual abuse she suffered 45 years ago at age 15 (31 May 2019)

You are simply swirling in strong and threatening currents of emotion .. just trying to hold on to what little seems left of your life.

If you enjoy riding roller coasters .. then you'll absolutely love the raging undercurrents of traumatic memories that you didnt even know were still there.

» You Cannot Deal With (Process) the Effects of Psychic Wounds that You Refuse to Even Acknowledge the Existence Of

Because you have been intentionally ignoring and denying the effects and consequences of these childhood traumas for so long ..

.. burning much unnecessary energy dealing with never-ending symptoms that arise from these open, festering wounds.

Max Strom knows what I am talking about.

Max Strom TEDx Talk Cape May (posted 7 Dec 2015)

Making one excuse after another why you cannot seem to rid yourself of these recurring problems .. which you probably blame on others.

Because you cannot even acknowledge these psychic wounds .. much less actually deal with them and finally put them to bed.

I am not saying that it is an easy thing, because it's not. But you will not get anywhere with anything you refuse to even acknowledge the existence of.

» Speaking Your Truth Serves as a Deterrent to Future Fuckheads

You do this not only for yourself, and for the people who share your life .. but also for future generations. Especially for future generations.

Child sex trafficking expert Yasmin Vafa of Rights4Girls says the Epstein case is no outlier. Rather child sex trafficking is pervasive here in the U.S. where powerful men exploit vulnerable girls every day. (9 July 2019)

How many priests do you reckon would have been touching young boys inappropriately had they a thought in the back of their head that these kids would grow up to tell the whole world of their experiences? (Publicly.)

And call out names and dates and years and ages and locations and actions and behaviors and the consequences of these actions and these behaviors.

See my point?

» Silence Encourages Fuckheads to Continue Their Abusive Behavior

This is why I feel that every sentient being has a moral obligation to speak out against such things .. when they are able .. and speak their truth(s) .. including and especially the worst parts of their truth(s). As ugly as those truths might be.

Mind you that I am not saying that such things are easy. Such things are incredibly difficult. You will certainly need all the support that you can find.

I bet that Nikki Klieman knows what I am talking about.

Legal analyst Nikki Klieman talks about Jeffrey Epstein's case involving the sexual assault of minors (7March 2019)

Because, if fuckheads think that they can or will get away with such things .. because the fuckheads who came before them got away with such things ..

.. then, they will feel at liberty and encouraged to continue with their morally repugnant behavior.

The Handmaid's Tale (1985) by the prophetic Margaret Atwood

In such a way it is the silence itself that speaks to them and says, "Go ahead and do that nasty shit to those defenseless little kids who are currently in their formative years."

» Dont Shrink Back (Cower) in Fear at the Idea of Speaking Your Truth

This theme here, where I speak to the moral obligation to speak out against injustices visited upon those too weak and too poor and helpless to defend themselves against an older, wealthy, powerful people ..

.. who threaten to harm them if they dare speak their truth publicly ..

This theme here reminds me of what Paul wrote to the Hebrews, where he is quoting God Himself from Habakkuk the prophet, saying (paraphrasing) »

"My righteous one shall live by faith. But if he shrinks back in fear (from the idea of living by faith) and pussies out, then I will not be happy with him. His spineless ass will definitely bum me out. I surely hope that he is ready to start growing a spine pretty soon. A righteous spine. Because he doesnt have much time left."

I would never say that such things were easy. But what is the alternative?

» Speaking Your Truth is How You Kick the Devil's Ass

Anyway .. speaking of the end of the world .. notice what it says here in the book of Revelations .. that speaking your truth ( the "word of your testimony" ) ..

.. is how you kick the devil's ass ( in v11 "triumph over, overcome and conquer" ).

The Devil of Little St. James | The True Jeffrey Epstein Story (Nov 2017)

The suggestion here is that .. if you dont speak your truth ( the "word of your testimony" ) .. then you will not kick the devil's ass.

Maybe you are too scared to kick the devil's ass? Maybe you'd rather not piss him off?

You wouldnt be the first .. nor would you be the last.

» He Who Delights in Executing Righteous Deeds of Vindication for the Oppressed

Scripture says that the Lord » performs righteous deeds of vindication for all who are oppressed. He told Jeremiah that he "delights" in exercising justice.

In other words, he gets off on it .. on exercising justice by performing righteous deeds of vindication.

The term vindicate is defined as »

    1. To defend or support against an enemy; maintain the cause or rights of; deliver from wrong, oppression, or the like.
    2. To support or maintain as true or correct, against denial, censure, or objections; defend; justify.
    3. To demonstrate or prove the value or validity of; justify.
    4. To avenge; punish; retaliate.

When the Eternal One exercises a Righteous Deed of Vindication on your sorry ass ..

Artist sketch of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein (66) wearing a blue jumpsuit in federal court, New York (8 July 2019)

.. this is not something that you recover from .. ever. (No matter who happens to call you "a terrific guy".)

Trump says Epstein is a terrific guy who he has known for 15 years, and who likes his women on the younger side (Jeffrey Epstein: International Moneyman of Mystery, NY Magazine 28 Oct 2002)

Or how many famous fans you might happen to have.

Jeffrey Epstein (66) denied bail due to being a flight-risk and a danger-to-the-community pictured here in Palm Beach, Florida (1992) with his good friend Donald Trump, who called Epstein a terrific guy.

You'll see what I mean.

Palm Beach county State Attorney David Aronberg expects Jeffrey Epstein (66) to spend what's left of his sorry-ass life behind bars (19 July 2019)

Sooner or later.

» What Happens When a Bad Man has Friends in High Places?

Samantha Bee does an excellent job here (17 July 2019) detailing how justice comes out perverted for a very long time ..

Samantha Bee details Epstein's friends-in-High-Places whose victims spoke out anyway (17 July 2019)

.. when bad men have powerful Friends-in-High-Places.

» Dershowitz Sounds Panicky while his Accusers Sound Calm and Confident

One of these powerful men in High Places that Samantha talks about is » Alan Dershowitz (80).

Listen to Glenn Beck read a statement from one of Dershowitz's accusers, who says that the famous lawyer had sex with her and her girlfriend at Epstein's home in New York when they were both minors.

Statement of Virginia Roberts Giuffre about her having sex as a minor with Alan Dershowitz at Epstein's home in New York as read by Glenn Beck (9 July 2019)

I was not there in Epstein's New York home .. but Dershowitz definitely sounds guilty to me. Guilty and scared.

He probably should be scared. These are very convincing statements that these women have made.

Their statements contain the easy confidence that comes with plenty of fine details .. the kind that you can get only from personal experience.

Meanwhile Dershowitz is sounding increasingly frantic and desperate and panicked.

Dershowitz and Epstein at Harvard in 2004.

But he is 80 years old. How many years in prison do you reckon he would be able to serve?

Do you think he'll make it to 90?

» The Affluenza Defense Perfected in Upscale Tarrant County

I wonder if Epstein's lawyers will use the Affluenza defense that worked so well for Ethan Couch.

Ethan Couch, the 'Affluenza' teen who killed four innocent people while driving drunk (2 April 2018)

Ethan killed 4 people while driving drunk with a blood-alcohol level that was triple the legal limit.

As punishment, he was sent to a resort in Newport Beach where they ride horses as a form of therapy.

This is yet another example of justice coming out perverted. Taylor knows what I am talking about. Kelly knows what I am talking about. Habakkuk knows what I am talking about.

» Justice in America is a Joke .. a Bad Joke

I wonder what Donny Deutsche thinks (at t=8:20) about Justice in America coming out perverted.

Donny Deutsche expresses concern (at t=8:20) that the institution of the Justice dept is NOT HOLDING because of things BILL BARR has said and done (19 July 2019)

There is much to unpack in Donny's commentary.

Donny Deutsche expresses concern (at t=8:20) that the institution of the Justice dept is NOT HOLDING because of things BILL BARR has said and done (19 July 2019)

But now is not the time for that. Suffice to say that Justice in America is a joke .. a bad joke. And it's been a bad joke for a long time now.

Bill Barr flat out lied to congress with a straight face .. which is a crime.

Charlie Crist says Bill Barr lied to Congress during his testimony under oath on 9 April 2019 (posted 1 May 2019)

And what happened to him? Nothing.

Anyway .. that Affluenza approach sounds like a sweet deal that is right up Epstein's alley.

» Speaking Your Truth: the Male Perspective vs the Female Perspective

I can see better now how many women have a fear of speaking out against abusive behavior ..

.. that they mightve suffered at the hands of men in positions of power and in positions of authority over them.

The more powerful the man, the greater the fear.

My existential perspective is naturally that of a male familiar with positions of power and authority and autonomy and influence.

I am familiar with the process of cultivating and polishing such things.

» Cultivating Influence and Authority and Autonomy

As a contractor, you naturally need to assume a quieter role. Less visible.

You make sure your bosses always look good and are kept well-informed of the important stuff, and aware of any problems on the horizon.

I could speak much to the dynamics of operating in military-like, hierarchal organizations .. because I have much experience at it .. and in many different configurations, and with many different variables.

So I feel confident speaking to the subject to a wide swath.

But the gist is that, if you keep your bosses looking good, and never smelling bad, because you are out there doing a good job at keeping your eyes open for potential snags. You are stretching your autonomy here-n-there .. but only when you are sure of it.

If you do such things, your boss will want to keep you around and keep giving you more-n-more autonomy.

One of my bosses once said, "Just keep doing what you're doing. If you fuck up, I'll let you know."

» Making Sure Your Boss Looks Good by Setting Up Your Peeps for Success

A big part of this job of making your boss look good .. is making sure that your people are set up for success.

If your people are not set up for success, then they are more likely to fail.

This idea here of Setting Up your Peeps for Success .. this plays right into that thing I was telling Taylor.

If your boss looks bad, then you look bad .. for not keeping him out of trouble. If one of your peeps look bad, then you look bad .. for not setting him up for success.

» Forced to Accept a Greater Degree of Responsibility

Accepting responsibility, or a greater degree of responsibility .. this concept ties in closely with the thing I was telling Taylor.

I am good at assuming responsibility .. seeing that I was an eldest child and dad blamed me for everything my brother and I broke.

"You're older .. you should know better."

Even though I have much experience operating in such environments, I must say that the hierarchal thing is not my favorite environment to operate in.
