We are trained for war , Every reaction is Instant and Emotional , filled with Rage and Precision . In every Movie , every game .
From cartoon to blockbuster , Good vs Evil , Fight to the death , or blow everything up trying to win or just survive .
Proof of manhood is the strength and willingness to fight ,middle school to high school , competition , college winner takes all.
From Ninjas to Rambo , Bruce Lee to Highlander , Charles Bronson to Clint Eastwood ,All our Heroes are warriors.
Ever notice that ?
( And yes I even have to include the Jedi Knights vs Darth Vader and the Emperor)
We Glorify it . We embrace it , we Film it and remake it . Over and Over and Over .
Now when something goes wrong in society it is met with Violence of an Extraordinary nature .
Now we have cities in flames because 1 man dies at the hands of a Law Enforcement Officer.
(Oxymoron of a name now isn’t it ?)
Someone insults a Book and they are Murdered ,
Tribal Conflicts , Financially Inspired Wars and Insurgencies , War is Good for Business . a Lot of money to be made .
I guess that makes it ok doesn’t it …….
Yes ,…… I read the News , just before I take out the Garbage ………………. ( Movie Line embedded there)
We really aren’t very far from the portrayal or image presented to us by the most Perfectly done “Mad Max ”
In that world , not even our beloved James Bond would have time to stop for a Martini ( Shaken not Stirred of course )
Yet We cry out for peace ….. Know Justice , Know Peace
The Students in Hong Kong want Justice , the People in Ferguson want Peace , the People in Afghanistan want peace
( although it may not look like it at the moment ) …………
ISIS wants Power and Control so they can pretend they have Peace .
The Rich want more Money so they can Feel like they have enough protection to be at peace ( but that doesn’t really mean Peace does it …….)
Skyrim , we kill Dragons and other Warriors … Thieves , Wizards
Call of Duty , we Kill each other …………Online , ….. only to grow up and be sent to a Zone where there is no reset button .
Then we go Shopping online ….. while the real world stores are closing their doors ,…..one …….by ……one …..by …..one .
Turn on the TV , Be Entertained , enjoy the movie … It is your training . your obligation . be Absorbed in it .Wide Eyed specimen.
Be Absorbed ………
I read the News …..do you ?
