Christian and Chinese Ancient philosophy have interesting connections and parallels, even to the point of dating. 500 BC would seem to be a point of convergence. In our western Greek history this was a time of Plato and Aristotle. In China there were two diverging proponents of Confucianism. One was Xun Kuang. He was the negative. The evil bearer of Confucius. He believed that humanity was inherently evil and the purpose of ethics was to bring this evil under control. Mencius is the innate opposite, like Satan vs. God. He believed that humans were innately good who could be refined via education and ritual. However, the caveat was that this was confined to – the elite. Ultimately, both believed in a very class derived society of the intellectuals and the peasants.
Much like our own medieval times as well as the system attempting to absorb and recreate us today.
But just a century before these philosophers there were the Khazars. The Khazars were a Turkic ethnicity described as having one of two distinct ethnicities – the White and the Black, although white was predominant It is said that the Khazars converted to Judaisim sometime in the 8th century – which would have been during the “Dark Ages”. The dominant theory had to do with the ability to lend money.
There are philosophers of lore who believe that this period crossing 500 BC is when the schism first began creating what evolved to be the battle of dark vs. light. Yet, even in this ancient history of ‘light’ it was begotten within the concept of a monarch and the subjects. Servitude.
The blacks call it ‘slavery’. But servitude existed 3000 years before the Irish and African slave trade. The building of the Pyramids! 2500 BC is said to be a pinnacle mark for this amazing Pyramid engineering. It opens the dialogue that 4,600 years ago, man was more advanced than he was in the 1800’s. This can only occur as entire civilizations are destroyed. Dark Ages are unveiled wherein the intellectual capacity of man has disintegrated exceedingly.
Only to rise, to advance, to find intellectual formation – and then be annihilated once again – a cyclical parlay of societies. To start again. From Scratch.
Somewhat how we feel our world is positioning us today. YET, given our degree of IT – we are ‘aware’, and it is the awareness that gives us our FEAR.
Will our writings be preserved or burnt to ashes? Will the next society know what happened? Or is all this interned in the vacuous cellars of The Vatican where all history is hidden. To be ultimately revealed at some point of – time. Infinitum.
Once upon a time, these sort of thoughts were considered philosophical, an open for discussion and debate shared acuity. Today, such thoughts are called ‘conspiracy theories’, because open thought is a deviant of servitude. And servitude is the only means of mass control.
I would have been quite comfortable in a lobby or at a café table with the likes of Monet, Picasso, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Degas – even Lautrec. They considered themselves all to be intellectuals, the bourgeoisie of philosophical elites. They were ridiculed by the old school – but they had released themselves from the bonds and boundaries and that was in and of itself – an enlightenment of freedom.
But that time was relatively short lived.
This era preceded WWI. And then everything changed. In that moment in history, Communism took control of the globe, both overtly as in the Soviet Union, and subvertly as in what would become the EU, and the US.
While the ancient Tibetan and Confucius mantra is to create of world of peace and union and equality – at some point the negative Kuang took a dominant hold. The Satan of Christianity. While we have fought, the control was already placed in government. Today, these same mantra statements are espoused by the WEF and the UN – despite the fact that 4500 years since these words were first spoken – it has NOT yet come to pass.
Because it NEVER WILL>
YET, every century or half century this mantra is regurgitated. As though we are moving and advancing into something more equitable…. When in fact, that is the furthest goal in the sport.
The Goal is to WIN.
Which means there has to be at least two players in the game – and possibly more. Which means that there is literally a dark, seedy, stinking, smoky, booze riddled poker game determining our fate. Someone is folding. Someone is bidding up the pot. And someone is holding a stinking hand.
And somehow, they find great pleasure in this gamut.
While we suck our thumbs in fear of reprisal… Wear the duckbill mask and look like Daffy! But I’m not making fun of you! Hehehehe…
To answer the question about what instigated my denouncement of ‘pussies’, albeit my parents endured WWI, The Great Depression, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and all the stigmas in-between, I – don’t – want – to – endure…
Enduring is NOT ok. But I see it in many. The ones who have no sense of injustice – and instead want to eat. The ones who just – don’t care. The ones who allowed Auschwitz. The ones who voluntarily hopped on the – train… and waved… hoping for a meal of bread and water at the end, because that was better than what they had now.
That will NOT be me.
