We've Been Had

From fast food, to cheap toys, Americans have been had.  We are overworked, stressed out, fat, addicted, medicated, confused and practically incapable of changing.

I first realized how bad it was when I lived in Italy for a year. There were very few fat people. The food was different, natural.  The norm for a work day included a long mid-day break.  I am not saying Italy is perfect.  But I think it is definitely a step in the right direction.

I see how young people are herded through the school system, obese and uneducated. Not all of course, but too many.  I see the gluttonous hoarding of invaluable items made by people in slave labor types of conditions.  I see our planet getting polluted. Wars never ending.  The rich are getting richer on the backs of the masses.

We Have Been Had.

Why do I care? I care because my mother died following the path of the mainstream (that alone symbolizes groups of people mindlessly following a predetermined path). She worried constantly about things that did not bring her happiness.  Her pride kept her from learning outside the box.

I am not suggesting that life in the past was always better or that there can ever be a perfect society.  But I am saying that big business, rich families, and powerful people are taking advantage of most people, selling us products that are not good for us (music, food, politics, group-mentality).

What to do.  The only thing I know to do, is to wake up to it and make choices for ourselves.

Satanic music, media, and global power

Why is there so much "corruption" in music and media?

Why are there so many Satanic symbols?

It is only to profit? Control the masses? Could there be a spiritual force behind it?

Why does the movie industry promote such base content? Do I have a problem with these things just because of my religious past? Or did the unfortunate consequences of living lives without a moral compass lead me to religion ?

I think that many people are drawn to religion because of the personal experience of the emptiness of the party life, easy sex, violence and shallowness that is promoted in mainstream media and music.

So, my question is, is there actual a supernatural component or is it just a sinister very human motivation?  Or do I actually need to recheck my basic understand of moral structure?

I don't know what I think yet.  But, I do know that I value deep friendships, commitment in marriage, love of my children.  I do know that the lack of order and attention growing up really screwed me up in a lot of ways.

I don't think easy abortion is moral. I cannot consider myself pro-choice. But yet, I do feel the right of an individual to take their own life if it is more immoral to force someone to live (with suffering) than die. 

 I think Christopher Hitchens agrees with me.

What do these things have to do with the Bilderberg Group, Bohemian Grove, Council on Foreign Relations, Skull and Bones, and Trilateral Commission?

Death With Dignity

I have reformulated my understanding of being pro-life.  My newest belief is that being pro-life means respecting the quality of life and a persons own choices.

I am so grateful my mom was able to pass with as little suffering as possible.  Days before she died, before her pain was managed, she looked at me and said, with eyes wide, suffering and yellow, "this isn't what it's going to be like for now on is it?"  I made the determination that I wouldn't allow that. I was her advocate for pain relief until the end.

This is a beautiful video of a young woman who has found out she has a very aggressive brain tumor.
