Not long ago I was struck by a Revelation. While considering the Dire State of Affairs our world currently resides in, and why it is that things have reached such strange proportions of mass insanity, I realized that most people don’t truly want freedom. They are comfortable in the slave/master relationship. This is why it has proven to be so difficult throughout the ages to form a society based on individual rights and responsibilities. The majority of people are sheep-like creatures, content to be herded, whether out in the fields to graze, or into the pens to be slaughtered. They want to be dominated. They want to be led around on a leash. They want to serve a hierarchical power structure that provides their every need for them. They want to be fleeced. They want to be taxed. They want Big Brother watching over their shoulder. They want pie-in-the-sky promises from politicians. They want spoon fed mass media. They want corporate advertising. They want pop culture. They want these things, they have them, and they aren’t going to give them up without a fight.

As a species we have arrived at the crux point. There are two parallel paths before us that will soon veer off in totally different directions. One leads toward Heaven on Earth, the other toward Armageddon. We stand at the cusp of either apotheosis or extinction, and we each have a choice to make. I do not speak specifically on behalf of any particular race, creed or ethnicity, nor any political, social or religious sect. I’m speaking on behalf of all humanity and feel no presumptuousness in doing so.
In my day to day contact with people I tend to trust those that are decent, honest, upright and pure, while I do my best to shun the creeps, murderers and thieves. Psychopaths, sociopaths, pathological liars, and narcissists aren’t on the list of people I’d like to sit down and have a drink with. So why would I let such Evil people assume positions of power that influence the society I live in? It would be absolutely ridiculous, completely contemptible, absurd and asinine!
In this world of spiritual blindness and decadent madness, the dharmic path of the individual can become muddled by the mediocrity of the mob. The mindless masses, however, are not representative of a true societal movement. It is the forward-thinking entrepreneurs and innovators that spur evolution. The voice of the majority, despite what the advocates of democracy may try to persuade us into believing, is never the be-all end-all of any meaningful discussion. In fact, the screeching sound they make is naught but noise pollution generated by an unthinking, scared herd. It is critically important to pierce through the static of the status quo and realize that the stagnation it represents is not worth saving.
