so crazy it just might...

I am aware that I have not made much mention of this whole 'Syria false flag chemical weapons must be stopped by bombing the shit out of them' thing, and have now summed it all up in a half a sentence, and so, don't need to say a whole lot more on the topic. I don't see much reason to say what everybody else is already saying because I have no urge to become part of the static which I see both sides of the argument becoming at the moment. Syria has always been on that list of 7 countries in 5 years, which, because of being a plan executed by a government has taken longer and cost more and not actually progressed in the same direction as it's originally advertised goal line because the advertised goal was never the intended goal in the first place. That is simply how these things are, and will continue to be so long as we continue to fall for the lie and chant their slogans reinforcing the programming so we'll accept the lie again next time they need to use the very same one.

In case it is not absolutely obvious yet I will spell it out: they don't give a fuck what we think, say, or do about it any more this time, than they did last time... Unless... Well, I will get to that in a little while.

What have we done over the past decade? We have to recount these things in order to understand what hasn't yet worked.... We've written pointed letters to elected officials, and nothing has changed. We've voted new faces into the seats of apparent power, and nothing has changed. We've filled the streets with protesters and signage to be meted with tear-gas and major police brutality, and nothing has changed. We had an 'occupy' movement which was completely misunderstood by the press until it had been hijacked and divided into camps each with it's own cause of focus, and then that too was brutalized and illegalized, and nothing changed.

We know boycotting product 'a' simply promotes product 'b' which is ultimately owned by the same boards of directors, which puts the pawns making product 'a' in whatever area out of work, while product 'b' buys up new machines or a new factory in some slave-wage nation to make up the production gap which makes us the real loser while the 10 out of 12 people who own both companies laugh at our misconception of who has the power...

We are failing at these things because they are ready for them... They know how not to lose money by taking ours. They know how to make a somewhat discontent mob into an angry one, and then how to respond even more violently. They know how to infiltrate and polarize a debate about something into an argument about nothing in order to keep us divided and against each other...

What is the common theme? Every single one of these things we've tried have had a very basic, and likely unrealized foundation. They've all been rife with negative emotions, they've all been born of discontent, been simmered to a mild outrage, flamb├ęd into anger, and extinguished with fear or pain while greed managed off with more of what it didn't deserve in the first place. They have also all boiled down to certain 'causes' or certain 'injustices' allowing our focus to be drawn away from other causes or injustices which were being done just outside our peripheral vision which leads to what appeared at the time to be a small victory for one cause which was not really that cause we were focused on taking a step back, but every other cause we weren't focused on taking a step forward.

I think the next movement, which is just so insane that it might even work, needs to be one not born of anger or focused on all that is wrong... All is wrong because we helped it to become wrong, and as such we need to forgive ourselves and each other to begin the healing process...

I suggest a nameless and wordless protest with no cause and every cause. No slogan, no marching, no signage, and no words, no dress code, and very few instructions to fuck up... Here are the instructions: at noon every Wednesday hug someone... whoever happens to be around whether you know them or not, same sex, opposite sex, heck hug several people. No groping, no bear hugs, no sexual innuendo, just a simple hug. During this hug, think of your cause, think of how you want to change the world for the better, don't say it, just think it and focus on it...

I would even suggest that this hugging period be 30 minutes from noon to 12:30 during which time, no words are spoken, and no financial or commercial transactions are made, nothing outside of true emergencies like fire fighters or ambulances or genuine 'life or death' situations should be handled for 30 minutes a week. Stop the world, and freeze time to the best of our abilities while doing nothing but hugging our fellow human and thinking about how to make the world a place we truly want to live in again. In the absence of anybody anywhere within range, hug yourself. Don't block roadways, don't block doorways, don't obstruct those who might think that they have something better to do, or more important places to be. This is not a show of force, it is a display of affection and forgiveness, so accept and forgive that there will be some who want no part in this. We need to remove all the negative energy in the room, and by extension, the world. The world, and the human psyche are wounded from all the abuses they've suffered and can only begin to heal after we've stopped wallowing in our own misery.
