Violence Is Golden

Our country is rooted in violence. Whether it is physical, mental, emotional or a combination, violence hangs over our heads every second of every day creating an industry of fear. We can back away from the fear and refuse to allow it to rule our lives but violence is never too far away. Violence is not just targeted at humans but to our animals and our earth as well.

The psychopaths of Wall Street, the Fed and world wide central banks using their minions thrive on violence. It is the moneymaker to end all moneymakers. It is the control mechanism of the ages. It is our biggest business and almost our only business.

Our violence is exported all over the world through armaments, psychological operations, paid for mercenaries, our own paid for soldiers, bribery and blackmail. Theft demands it.

Indeed, for a few, violence is golden.



"Buildin' Chevies was never the fun of buildin' up the war machine."






Violence Is Golden
A lot of people like to think they are “non-violent.” Generally, people claim to “abhor” the use of violence, and violence is viewed negatively by most folks. Many fail to differentiate between just and unjust violence. Some especially vain, self-righteous types like to think they have risen above the nasty, violent cultures of their ancestors. They say that “violence isn’t the answer.” They say that “violence doesn’t solve anything.”
They’re wrong. Every one of them relies on violence, every single day.

On election day, people from all walks of life line up to cast their ballots, and by doing so, they hope to influence who gets to wield the axe of authority. Those who want to end violence — as if that were possible or even desirable — often seek to disarm their fellow citizens. This does not actually end violence. It merely gives the state mob a monopoly on violence. This makes you “safer,” so long as you don’t piss off the boss.

All governments — left, right or other — are by their very nature coercive. They have to be.

Order demands violence.

A rule not ultimately backed by the threat of violence is merely a suggestion.

Without action, words are just words. Without violence, laws are just words.

Violence isn’t the only answer, but it is the final answer.

I don't agree with everything Donovan says in his essay but he gets some basic points correct. Violence or the threat of it equals peace? We have heard that many times. It is used for wars and a multitude of other criminal endeavors. We need to turn the tables on on those threatening profit motivated violence but that may mean we would have to use violence against them. Most of us would not look forward to that. Is there another way?

    US escalates Syrian intervention

    "...US funds to pay salaries to what are effectively Western-controlled mercenaries fighting to bring down the Syrian regime. At least $3 million was paid out at the January 30 meeting and at another meeting held at the end of last year.

    Obama flew to California Friday for confidential discussions with Jordan’s King Abdullah II at Sunnylands, the former Annenberg Estate. He promised the Hashemite monarch $1 billion in loan guarantees as well as the renewal of a memorandum of understanding that provides the kingdom with $600 million in US financial and military aid. In return, Washington wants a free hand in using Jordanian soil as a launching pad for aggression against Syria."

  2. I don't agree with everything in the following article, and certainly not with a lot of the comments for reasons which I have already given in the past, with abundant references, but it presents some disturbing facts which show why it is important to tell the truth about the Bible:

    Philip Giraldi : Old Testament Armed Forces

    Religious zealotry runs rampant in the U.S. military, and among those wishing to deploy it.

    That the United States military appears to be increasingly a professional force that has few links to the general population is by itself disturbing. That it also might be developing a warrior class ethos that includes a certain kind of evangelical religiosity as a key element only serves to increase the distance between soldiers and most civilians, apart from the constitutional issues that it raises.

    The connection between America’s wars in the Middle East—and its wars more generally—with the more fundamentalist forms of Christianity in the United States is striking.

    1. How can one become a general or high ranking officer with such twisted religious world views? Are these types promoted intentionally for their zealot approach to killing those deemed enemies of the moment? It's sick and dangerous. Sort of a Dr. Strangelove scenario.

      From his perspective, Richard Edmondson has a historical article on how a very early growing Christian church totally rejected the OT and the what ifs had they continued. Constantine's agenda put an end to that and humanity has had to endure the OT as more than just an obscure jewish book ever since.

    2. Thanks for the link, Kenny. We can also speculate about what if the lying Hebrew priests and scribes had never written the hate literature that has resulted in the various bloodthirsty Abrahamic religions. The world might be a better place than it is now.

      I wouldn't read Leviticus if I were you. No one else does.

      Instead, I'll summarize it for you: Get an animal, kill it, sprinkle the blood around, cut the dead animal into pieces, and burn it for a "sweet savor unto the Lord."

    4. I have always felt when it comes to discussing religious doctrine, we should ask ourselves what is the goal. In other words if you are going to serve God it would be wise to first define exactly what God is or at least have a conception of it. If not you are embarking on an endless stream of debate and technicality.


      I find the subject of light to be simple enough. This is the goal of every pathway (religion) worth it's salt. It was the same with the Rishis, long before Jesus, Hebrews or other religions. It goes back to the dawn of time and it too is about light and sound, … the word.

      In fact that is what the pineal gland does, react to light. It is the gateway to knowledge. It is beyond temples and theory.

      Of course we have the Lord Jesus, his was the son of the light. The light is the creator. Christos in the Greek means light or one anointed with light if you will Jesus was the representative of the light but his name was Jesus Barabbas not Jesus Christ.

      So it is possible to split hairs all day over ideology, what one tract or position is correct. It is a debate that can go on forever. It is answered by an inscription over the Potala in Tibet. It says "A thousand monks, A thousand Religions."

      Those thousand monks can all read the same tract but their understanding of it will be different. There will be a thousand different understandings.

      There is one thing the major religions and philosophies including the native Americans can agree on. It is light, Christos etc, that animates the known universe. It is what you get when you split the atom, (blinding light) it enlivens every cell. It is life force or what native Americans would call the great white spirit. There is no need for argument or misunderstanding that lead to hard feelings here among people who are sincere.

      This energy is spoken of at length in Return of Pahana. It is the joining of positive and negative energy, the two highest forces in the universe. When they meet in the heavens, they form lightning, the form a baby in the womb, they cause the mother to look upon a new born babe with astonishment. It is life itself.

      The quest is how do we choose life, how do we get more of it? We do that in our approach towards the natural world in many different ways from proper diet to tantrayana and even the art of breath. There is no other way. It is described in detail here. No one can bestow it upon you, it is a goal only you can work towards.

      http://www.thenazareneway.com/essene_gospel_of_peace_book1.htm

      I have written on this subject myself. For me, the Vedas and Buddhism are the shortest route to this light I have found. They provide instructions to the goal itself.

      http://dublinsmick.wordpress.com/2014/02/17/who-wrote-the-bible/

      There is a force that makes the grass grow. That is what we are all seeking. That force is called many names, life force, electromagnetic energy, prana, great white spirit, positive and negative. That force exists and has long ago been proven to me. I can see the grass grow. This is what I am seeking.

    5. Dublinmick: I have always felt when it comes to discussing religious doctrine, we should ask ourselves what is the goal. In other words if you are going to serve God it would be wise to first
      define exactly what God is or at least have a conception of it. If not you are embarking on an endless stream of debate and technicality.

      NMM: The goal of religious doctrine has far too often been to empower and enrich priests and rulers, and "serving god" has entailed the enslavement or torture and murder of those whose definition of god is not exactly the same as that of those priests and rulers, or of those who deny that those gods exist. I think that is a subject worthy of debate.

      Dublinmick: Of course we have the Lord Jesus, his was the son of the light. The light is the creator. Christos in the Greek means light or one anointed with light if you will Jesus was the representative of the light but his name was Jesus Barabbas not Jesus Christ.

      NMM: Christ (/kraɪst/) (ancient Greek: Χριστός, Christós, meaning 'anointed'). The "mummy" in ancient Egypt was called "the Krst/Christ", anointed with oils and resins. Yehoshuah, or the alternative form Yeshua (Joshua, Jeshua, meaning "to rescue", "to deliver", Iesous in Greek, from which comes the English spelling Jesus) were common Jewish names, and there would have been many "Jesuses" wherever there were Jews, including India and Egypt, some of whom would have been rabbis, mystics, magicians or rebels, and who could have been incorporated into the myth of Jesus the Christ. Read Christ a Fiction by Robert M. Price:

      http://infidels.org/library/modern/robert_price/fiction.html

      and A Surfeit of Jesuses!:

      http://jesusneverexisted.com/surfeit.htm

      Dublinmick: There is no need for argument or misunderstanding that lead to hard feelings here among people who are sincere.

      NMM: Many sincere people have been led by their beliefs to torture and slaughter the infidels and heretics who didn't agree with them. Any hard feelings that believers might suffer by being told the facts is insignificant in comparison. Perhaps if more people understood the common mythological origins of various religions there would be less violence.

    6. The authenticity of The Essene Gospel of Peace is doubtful:

      How to Identify Pseudoscience, Quackery, and Fraud

      One thing I did learn was that Jesus promoted colon cleansing. No, seriously! It’s in the Essene Gospel of Peace. Good to know whenever the old Argument from Authority is pulled out.

      [Extract from the EGoP]

      ...a few tips on how to deal with pseudoscientific claims or theories:

      - How do I know that’s so?
      - Where’s the evidence?
      - What’s the evidence against? Is there another side to the story?

      Which leads to the SkepDoc’s rule of thumb:

      Before accepting a claim we should try to find out who disagrees with it and why.

      Words to live by.

      The next two articles are by Keith Akers, a vegetarian:

      Pious Fraud, Vegetarian Style

      Excerpt:

      Two distinguished examples of modern “pious frauds” are the gospels by Nicholas Notovitch and Edmond Bordeaux Szekely. Both are sometimes innocently quoted by vegetarians to prove that Jesus went to India or that Jesus was a vegetarian. But neither of them constitutes real evidence about Jesus, or about anything else before the nineteenth century.

      Read the rest:

      Strange New Gospels

      Some modern proponents of Jesus’ vegetarianism utilize alternative gospels — gospels which suggest that Jesus lived in India, taught novel health ideas, was vegetarian, and had a startlingly different theology from that given in the churches. I do not cite these gospels when discussing the historical Jesus, even though some of these gospels seemingly support my case. Why? Because these gospels are esoteric and modern gospels, created in relatively recent times. Some of them are outright frauds, claiming to be from ancient manuscripts when they are in fact not; others are what we would called "channeled" writings — writings received through a modern communication from another world.

      With the exception of the Book of Mormon, this is probably the most widely known book discussed on this website. According to publishers, it has been sold in more than 400,000 copies. As literature, it is a better read than most hoaxes. Yet it is without a doubt a forgery.

    If you hear a bang in the night in Oklahoma, it's probably not a monster, but could something worse -- an earthquake. MY COMMENT: NO, A BOMB
    Across the south central state, 20 earthquakes were reported to The United States Geological Survey on Saturday alone. One of those quakes in the Edmond area had a magnitude of 3.5. MY COMMENT - a magnitude of 3.5 corresponds with 3.7 metric tons of military grade explosive detonated below the surface, like a ground penetrating bomb would do.

    But residents are puzzled as to why the quakes are occurring so frequently and making such alarmingly loud noises.MY COMMENT, DOH, because BOMBS ARE FREAKING LOUD AND USUALLY COME IN GROUPS
