» A Moral Responsibility to Future Generations

As a side-thought here, on the subject of » things best left unsaid ..

What do you think about the idea that everybody, every sentient-being, who is made in the image-n-likeness of God .. the Living God Himself ..

.. what do you think about the idea that every such creature has a moral obligation to speak out? .. in whatever way they choose.

.. in whatever way they deem right and proper.

» "It's Okay if You Hack Up Enemies-of-the-People"

If I were going to try a similar thing as Blow does here .. by giving existential voice to actions ..

.. I might say that the Administration's response to the Saudis for the gruesome murder of Jamal Khashoggi is something like »

Jamal Khashoggi walking into Saudi consulate in Istanbul (2 Oct 2018)

"It's okay if you use a bone-saw to hack up journalists from the Amazon-Washington Post .. long as the blade is sharp and not very rusty .. because they are just enemies of-the-people anyway. Downright disgusting, I tell you. Thanks for the help, but try to be a little more careful next time. And 15 guys is way too many. You shouldnt need more than two or three. Talk to the Russians."

I am talking about actions here, not words. What do the actions say if you strip away all the words .. because you can no longer trust the words. And because actions always speak louder.

He is not putting words into Paul Ryan's mouth. Ari is letting Paul Ryan speak for himself .. and then looking at how Paul did relative to those statements that he publicly uttered himself.

» Nobody is Even Close

I wonder what Charlie Pierce thinks of this.

Paul Ryan is the biggest fake in politics says Charlie Pierce .. nobody is even close (19 Dec 2018).

You could spend the rest of your life trying to identify and document all the hypocrisy in our government .. and still not capture it all.

I bet that Michael Moore knows what I am talking about.

Have they no shame? Do they just say whatever they think that people want to hear? It certainly appears that way.

Speaking of being renowned for hypocrisy .. here is Ken Starr with a young Brett Kavanaugh.

Birds-of-a-feather are they.

» Hypocrisy and Self-Delusion

Nobody lives a life completely free of hypocrisy .. but gross hypocrisy is a result of self-delusion.

We are better at deceiving ourselves than others (at t=1:10)

They dont see their hypocrisy because they dont know themselves .. because they are self-deluded.

And because they dont see this obvious thing that is right in front of them ..

Good thing for Trump that Mueller is not the democratic version of Ken Starr (21 March 2019)

.. they naturally think that others dont see it either.

Some people think that they are a straight-shooter .. when it is obvious to everybody else that they are not.

And it doesnt stop at just crooked shooting, either. But you will never be able to get them to see the error of their crooked shooting.

Go ahead and give it a try and you'll see what I mean.

» What a Hypocrite

I wonder what Mike Pence thinks of this. He seems to be familiar with the way that bad morals can end up incinerating the planet.

Mike Pence the hypocrite speaks to Bill Clinton's moral failures

He is such a hypocrite. He is a hypocrite's hypocrite. Paul says that such people condemn themselves.

Peter says to rid yourself of all hypocrisy. (Mike mustve skipped that part.)

Jesus himself warned the people about the hypocrisy of the members of the Establishment of his day ..

.. saying that these Establishment members do not practice what they preach ..

.. and that these self-righteous Establishment hypocrites like to major in the minor things .. while neglecting the really important stuff, such as justice and mercy.

Mike Pence is the Establishment of our day .. a part of the Establishment. So I probably shouldnt be so surprised at his hypocrisy.

Oh, she is a woman on a mission. She is going after them all. You do not want to be on her shit-list. You do not want to be in her crosshairs.

She is smart and she is focused and she is pissed .. and she is coming for them. It's only a matter of time now.

Doing the Work

» You Still Need to Continue to Do the Personal Work Toward Growth

One of the things that I caught myself thinking about .. regarding girls like you and Ariana .. is something that I found true in my own life.

Just because you have this thing .. doesnt mean that you dont need to continue to do the personal work involved in personal growth .. which includes (among other things) educating yourself, and becoming a student of what you do.

When you have the thing, then you can't help but think, "Oh, I have the thing .. I got it made. I got it made forever."

But in practice, it does not work this way. 'Fraid not.

[ One of my 'things' .. is that I experiment with such things. "I wonder what happens if I do this."?

Oh, I see .. I get this result. Very cool.

Joyce knows what I am talking about. ]

I mean, you certainly can avoid doing the work .. because sometimes it is not so much fun to do the work associated with personal growth. (More than just sometimes, actually.)

It requires that you take stock of yourself in an honest way. And some people would rather you stick needles into their eyes.

Everybody knows that the end of growth represents the beginning of death. So you either grow or die. Or at least continue to develop in some meaningful sort of way.

Artistically speaking, you eventually come to the end of the line .. if you just run with your thing .. without doing the personal work .. then you sort of come to the end.

I feel confident that you know exactly what I am talking about. There is an element of public-life vs private-life at play here. You need balance.

» Personal Growth is Non-Linear

I have found the growth thing tends to come in spurts. You do much work .. and then something happens that triggers the growth. It's not a linear thing.

But you can definitely feel all that work that you did coming into play .. when it is triggered. And, yes .. it is a very fucking cool feeling.

When Justice Comes Out Perverted for a Very Long Time

[ This entry continues from here » Doing the Work (05 Oct 2017). ]

Most surprising is how one man was able to continue to do such bad things to so many young, vulnerable girls for so long.

Some of the women to come forward with allegations of sexual abuse against Harvey Weinstein

For so, so long. For a shockingly long length of time. An embarrassingly long time.

This 8-min video from the Washington Post, titled » Hollywood's Greatest Betrayal: How sexual predators operate in plain sight .. is simply outstanding.

This is the best single piece that I have seen yet .. that shines a light on the inner-workings of an otherwise unbelievable phenomenon.

Does not this news introduce an element of shame into the entire industry? Seems like everywhere you look, justice is coming out perverted.

The sheer scope of it suggests a systemic contamination on a level that is truly unfortunate. Sad for sure. And for many reasons.
