Invisible Surrender

“Remember Neo, if you are not one of us, you are one of them.”

-Morpheus

Morpheus here points out that if you are a part of the Matrix, you will fight to protect your own cage.

Thus, he explains what is a sheer difference in which one outside the sleep vacuum, must oppose and consider those inside as enemies, no matter how kind or fair as people they might be:

“That makes them our enemies, Neo.”

Notice how un-moderate and radically un-ambiguous Morpheus is about this.

“It is the world pulled over your eyes,” …the safety you don’t know is a cage.

This is the essence of conservatism, and its more aptly described root: status-quo-ism. – Which is equally left as it is right. That is why moderate ‘leftists’ invariably become the more conservtive version: liberals, and then liberals always become actual conservatives in the end.

It is because the root of the original idea logically leads us back to its original premise, no matter what steps are taken apart from it; unless we take a radical shift away from that source.

In this case, the originating idea is Conservatism, the defining philosophy of the U.S. in its entire history, ruled by Robber Barons to this day.

Left-ism is the exception even with a vast majority in our country, whereas in France for instance, Left-ism is the rule.

Virtually everybody would trade an amount of their freedom for security. At least in the United States.

Not me. Not those who matter.

But most. Vast majority.

Not many people can live on edge or even with the faintest threat to their own safety.

Last Night.

sitting in the brisk evening, a glass of red with danish blue cheese and warming my hands to my fathers poetry…we live in an age where this can be done, the tribal involvement…my dad tells me his father shook his hand …after years of service in Nam. shook his fuckin hand..

Doris had been the first…

“…Doris had been the first. The remains of her body churned in a state of suspension as The Gentleman had emptied the blood and changed the soap at different intervals. This was so that the body would go through decomposition at different stages.

The dark otherwise empty room was lined on either side with moving bodies in the metallic yellow and blue of twelve industrial washing machines. In front of each of the spinning engines of the machines was a nice neat set of clothes and shoes along with all the other personal things on their person. A book, a Light-Board, a deck of cards, notes, and a tiny micro world of their life was laid out before the churning of their bodies, as if respectively, each of them had merely stepped into a hot bath…”

Sleeping Giants. Greatness…is an Idea.

My Heroes have changed. At least they were Giants.

I met Patrick Stewart. At the New School. In the Capital of the World.  He taught me that humility could be strength. He taught me that presence trumps words. At times. “Engage.”

She taught me strength in a woman, after my mom.

Saw her live. Rapture. She taught me anger could be channeled and used against the enemy.

Ayn Rand taught me to FIGHT. That principles and values are to be faught for if not, you don’t deserve them. And that intellectualism is a moral thing.

And that there is more to life than ‘this.’ That indeed “The noble soul has reverence for itself.” – Nietzsche

“…Some give up at the first touch of pressure; some sell out. Some run down by imperceptible degrees and lose their fire, never knowing how or why they lost it. Then all of these vanish into the vast swamp of their elders who tell them persistently that maturity consists of abandoning one’s mind; security, of abandoning one’s values; practicality, of losing self-esteem…”

Most everyone I know and knew, sold out. I think it takes losing that which you love most…to enter the realm of the epic life, of the left hand path, of original experience. I lost my mom at 20. I lost my sanity around that time…too.

Only recently got it back.

Joseph Campbell taught me original experience and the mythical life, as life. He taught me compassion and listening. Intellectuality.

Our country stands as the single most avid destroyer of the black man. And woman. We all let it happen.

Vigilance.

He also and recently taught me that passivity is worse than being the perpetrator of evil.

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

This man taught me that tyranny comes in many forms. And that religion itself is THE primary perpetrator of evil in this world. Thomas Jefferson was an avid anti-Christian. –FACT.– Period. Look it up.

“I Have Sworn Upon the Altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”

— Thomas Jefferson

I have been able to recite this at will since I was 15.

He was writing about a religious tyranny over a town by means of a preacher in the 1800 campaign.

My Dad loved him.
