Partners

If a potential mate, partner, pair bond, girlfriend, boyfriend shows you “crazy” or “psycho” early on….run.

Shadowed Face

If a potential mate, partner, pair bond, girlfriend, boyfriend shows you “crazy” or “psycho” early on….run. Run away as fast as you can because most of the time we shadow our true selves or show a mild version of who we are early on so we don’t scare people away who might be worth making ourselves golden for. People who show you angry, aggressive early on are only going to be more of that as time wears on.

Options, not Priorities

In a world of abundant consumer goods, it is no surprise that we have become accustomed to simply discarding things if they are broken or old.

In a world of abundant consumer goods, it is no surprise that we have become accustomed to simply discarding things if they are broken or old.

In much the same way, on a planet of 8 billion humans we do much the same thing. People who are broken, old, or don’t tow the party line get relieved of graces quickly. We all have become interested only in ourselves and not what others are doing, how they are feeling, but how they can help us get ahead.

It is rote to understand that in a disposable society that people will become lost and mentally unstable. When you make people options and not priorities they will fall…and with it, civilization is be disposed of.

The American Empire Part 6 Conclusion

The American Empire will collapse someday…as all other great civilizations have in the past when they’ve turned from truth, tradition, and soul to mindless amusements, the God of government and money, and brutality.

The American Empire will collapse someday…as all other great civilizations have in the past when they’ve turned from truth, tradition, and soul to mindless amusements, the God of government and money, and brutality.

In the end it will go like other empires, burning at the hands of barbarians, lost in the sands of time with only broken monuments as a remembrance of something staggering and wonderful in its inception and a slide into moral and ethical decay.

Can we save it?

I believe we already hit the iceberg and are sinking like the Titanic did some years ago. The main reason I believe this is because everyone has become accustomed to their lifestyles regardless of what they might hold. And in order to save it we would have to change a lot of things about how we act in our communities and around the world. There are a lot of people in high and low places with their snouts in the trough. In fact everyone has a part in this game though it’s not completely our fault: most of us were handed this life and told to get their piece of the pie.

Sadly, America will be remembered, as all empires are, as once a beacon of hope for its people and those who wanted to partake in it from foreign lands who then slid into an avalanche of things that didn’t matter and concluded with non-traditional values.

I don’t care what happens at this point. I feel the empire will outlast me. But someday it will be gone and whether it happens in my lifetime or not is moot. I feel like if it does collapse in my day that I will actually get some enjoyment out of the sublime destruction of a Titanic unsinkable ship as it breaks up in the sea. But, I would also like to be there to throw a life raft to those in need and to rudder toward calmer waters.

Love pt 3

The divorce rate is high because people never really fully commit to one another. They half ass their intentions, half-ass what they are willing to do for the other, choosing to keep themselves on one side of a wall and never crossing the river Jordan. Marriage is easy, so is divorce. Committing fully to the other with heart and soul is gone from Western culture. If I had children I would tell them the story about a man who fell in love a lot of times and was sadly disappointed with every one of them. Love is dead in the human ethos. Sexual politics and carnal gamesmanship have taken root in current love affairs. My God, how will we go on? There will have to be a reawakening of the soul for us to continue this thing called life. I now quote from the band The Killers with their song, Smile Like You Mean It.

“And someone will drive her around
Down the same streets that I did
On the same streets that I did

Smile like you mean it.”
