A quotation by Keynes, John Maynard
It is not sufficient that the state of affairs which we seek to promote should be better than the state of affairs which preceded it; it must be sufficiently better to make up for the evils of the transition.
John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) English economist
“The Political Doctrines of Edmund Burke” (1904)

“What an astonishing thing a book is. It’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”

“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”
Thomas Jefferson

Perhaps only people who are capable of real togetherness have that look of being alone in the universe. The others have a certain stickiness, they stick to the mass.

"Your story is mine. I am above no single one. On my path of the Medicine of One all the stories of humanity and individual humanness are mine.

I love being. I love the sky and the sun, the river and the mountains, the canyons and the trees. I love red, yellow, black, blue, and the white that holds them all. I love all the animals and I have had many who were my dearest friends precede me in this return home. I loved them, I cared for them, and many of them died in my arms sometimes as my own act of mercy for them. Losing what I love is not easy, but I love being and being in this human form is a wondrous thing. It’s a wondrous thing, but we do lose what we love and there is pain. You might ask, “How do I have a steady ground of peace in spite of loss, pain, and tragedy? How do I touch my infinite eternal self and still lovingly move through this sensuous world and enjoy it? How do I live in two worlds in the same moment?”

'The obedient always see themselves virtuous rather than cowardly ' Robert Anton Wilson. Seems very relevant now.
No matter what you say or proof you can show to back your claims the people fear to be in the minority and acquiesce and think themselves a superior better person than you by doing so

 
#quote Gracy,
My husband was at the Capitol on Jan. 6th, and didn't see anything crazy happening on the mall side of the Capitol. He told me there was not a single police officer in sight and he was there with thousands of others. The craziness occurred on the other side of the building before any of the Trump supporters could walk there from the Ellipse. And then throw Antifa in the mix with their Trump paraphernalia and voila we have what the media wanted to show us. This Jan. 6th event was a false flag, just like the Reichstag Fire.

​Evil is but one letter away from the Devil & Good is one letter away from God

 
As soon as riches came to be held in honour, when glory, dominion, and power followed in their train, virtue began to lose its lustre, poverty to be considered a disgrace, blamelessness to be termed malevolence. Therefore as the result of riches, luxury and greed, united with insolence, took possession of our young manhood. They pillaged, squandered; set little value on their own, coveted the goods of others; they disregarde

The time a human lives is like a blind of an eye to endless time, look what we've done in such a short amount of time, not good, all fueled by a handful of greedy elites who we follow and who are hell bent on destroying the world we all live.

#BigBrother in #NWO #Disguise: The Rise of a New, Technological World Order

By John W. Whitehead
Global Research, December 16, 2020

“You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”—George #Orwell, #1984 #quote

It had the potential for disaster.

Early in the morning of Monday, December 15, 2020, Google suffered a major worldwide outage in which all of its internet-connected services crashed, including Nest, Google Calendar, Gmail, Docs, Hangouts, Maps, Meet and YouTube.

A quotation by Snicket, Lemony
Stealing, of course, is a crime, and a very impolite thing to do. But like most impolite things, it is excusable under certain circumstances. Stealing is not excusable if, for instance, you are in a museum and you decide that a certain painting would look better in your house, and you simply grab the painting and take it there. But if you were very, very hungry, and you had no way of obtaining money, it might be excusable to grab the painting, take it to your house, and eat it.
Lemony Snicket (b. 1970) American author, screenwriter, musician (pseud. for Daniel Handler)

'We're locked in an impossible cultural bind between a completely exhausted and materialistic marxism and a completely cancerous and value-dark kind of capitalism'.
Terence McKenna #quote

 
'The hour is late; the clock is ticking; we will be judged very harshly if we fumble the ball. We are the inheritors of millions and millions of years of successfully lived lives and successful adaptations to changing conditions in the natural world. Now the challenge passes to us, the living, that the yet-to be-born may have a place to put their feet and a sky to walk under; and that’s what experience is about, is caring for, empowering, and building a future that honours the past, honours the planet and honours the power of the human imagination.
There is nothing as powerful, as capable of transforming itself and the planet, as the human imagination. Let’s not sell it straight. Let’s not whore ourselves to nitwit ideologies. Let’s not give our control over to the least among us. Rather, you know, claim your place in the sun and go forward into the light. The tools are there; the path is known; you simply have to turn your back on a culture that has gone sterile and dead, and get with the programme of a living world and a re-empowerment of the imagination....
