Fear and Turmoil: The Plan

Fear and Turmoil: Predictable.

There is only one word powerful enough to describe the effect of recent global fear. Turmoil.

Fear and turmoil walk together. Hand in hand, for the convenience of terrorists fear-mongerers, power-mongerers, devious social manipulators. A new tool. The intimidation of planned fear and turmoil.

In any advanced civilization, there can be no reasonable justification for criminal, planned fear and turmoil. There can be no excuse for the preemptive murder of the innocent. In the news most recently, main-stream media included two of the most unbelievable, sickening, and video-recorded murders of two black men by police officers in separate incidents. The result? Terror. The predictable fear of authority. Intimidation. Stress. Inner turmoil.

That was not enough, apparently, so the media reported an almost-predictable response; the unbelievable, targeted murder of five police officers, dedicated family men ambushed by an unstable psychopathic lunatic trained by nobody other than the U.S. military. More fear and turmoil. A second incident perpetrated by another U.S. military-trained Baton Rouge so where does it stop? When does it stop. Does it stop?


Mass Murder: Fear and Turmoil

The additional recent, shocking and tragic killing of scores of innocent victims in Nice, France by a fringe lunatic terrorist using a heavy truck as a weapon. A killer drove indiscriminately and purposefully into crowds to kill in cold blood and maim as many people as possible another example of planned murder, death, fear and turmoil however tragic. The more recent tragedy in Baton Rouge cost the lives of three police officers gunned down in cold blood by a black man using an assault rifle and wearing body armour. Seeking revenge. Encouraging revenge. Where does the insanity of revenge stop? In the Middle East, the vicious cycle  of planned fear and turmoil never stops.


Planned Fear and Turmoil

Used randomly or planned as recommended by ISIS, it makes little difference; to generate mayhem, fear, and intimidation is the official plan of the perpetrator. Lone wolf, ISIS, Al Qaeda, or independent home-grown lunatics of all stripes and colours, ex-military or not, collectively bearing grudges, perceived or real. Murder, fear and turmoil: the remedy  of choice for all ills in disturbed minds.

The common denominator in these individuals and groups is:

Frighten as many people as possible, intimidate, bend everyone to the lunatic agenda, kill everyone who does not agree if necessary to create compliance. After all, frightened people are much easier to control.

'Devolution of humanity anyone? Are you a fanatic, an extremist, an unhappy camper, or simply a religious zealot with a pressing ideological agenda? Are you off your meds? Are you in a hurry to ‘fix’ the problem? Simple...will you now go on a rampage?  Get your Pokemon GO app instead...and find the Pokemon...'

The magic, ‘solution’ called murder is guaranteed to make anyone’s life worse. Will violence resolve any problem or sway others by killing innocent people? No. Will you be killed silenced permanently in the process? Quite likely…

With the current state of fear and turmoil now too big to comprehendand too big to easily remedy, peace is eroding, civilization is devolvingwe are becoming increasingly primitive, less tolerable, less tolerant, and nations are becoming unstable.


Mainstream Diet: Violence, Fear and turmoil

With tragic fear and turmoil in the daily mainstream media, the main course in the everyday diet, we increasingly become numb and insensitive to the fact and potential of violence, servitude , loss of freedoms, and the unimaginable, self-annihilation. The vicious ongoing loss of life in the Middle East, the wars in Syria, the proxy war in Ukraine, and the latest purge in Turkey are but examples; life seems to become increasingly worthless. Why? Is life just another ‘electronic’ game for the ‘entertainment’ of mindless self-destructive Lemmings? You decide.

In spite of the fact we create and allow these ‘developments’, it seems certain we will continue to fund, feed and encourage greedy corporate interests, power-control freaks, the greedy rich, industrialist warmongers, charlatans, deceivers, and social manipulators, who will, collectively, continue to create poverty, 3rd world conditions, suitable fear and adequate turmoil while peasants, the disenfranchised, walk around mindlessly with blank stares... playing Pokemon GoHow appropriate, how convenient, you say… it is  "too politically-correct, too hurtful, and no longer necessary to think about anything..."

We are the Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile 1 ‘ comes to mind….

We, as eternal optimists, continue to encourage the ‘assimilated’ to think for themselves.

The Liberal Way: Deceptive Marketing?

©2016 by Raymond Alexander Kukkee     [caption id="attachment_3773" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Alice, your understanding of 'Liberal' is wrong... Alice, your understanding of 'Liberal' is wrong...[/caption]

Liberal:    Adj.   1. Having social and political views that favour progress and reform  2.generous 3.tolerant 4. abundant   *(1)

Liberalize:  Verb  1. Make laws less restrictive *(1)


The Liberal Way Takes Over

The Liberal way.  Perhaps we don't understand the word 'Liberal'. We may be confused.  Bamboozled.  Misled.  Misinformed.  Sorry, Alice, it's early, we haven't had enough coffee yet.  That must be it. Perhaps we just didn't "get it" back in public school  when we learned to spell  L-i-b-e-r-a-l .  Or the dictionaries of the world  have the definition of  "Liberal" wrong. Maybe that's it.  None of the above being likely, is the Liberal way true to the definition of the word,  or is it deceptive marketing?

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised Canadians  a Liberal government would be different.  Canadians are still waiting.


The Liberal way, with Liberal ideology: Is it deceptive  political marketing?

The Liberal way infers free and liberal application of  logic, liberal thought, Alice;  liberal actions,  liberal tolerance,  and most importantly (which the foolish may have incorrectly assumed,) the liberal  tossing of tight-bunged Conservative shackles.  Why, sure...Conservative and rather destructive Harper-controlled  conservatism  with its preconceived, limited and restrictive tight-bunged control-freak ideology, was  supposed to be tossed into the dumpster.  You get the idea, Alice?

The Liberal way takes over. Or does it?  Is the Liberal way  actually liberal, or is it just creative window-dressing, a political scam, liberal in name only, deceptive marketing to perpetuate the same old, same old political crap jargon and make voters believe governance somehow changed,  magically got 'better'?    Worth repeating. Deceptive marketing.

Let's see...Umm... We happy, smiling Canadians now have a "Liberal" Government...does it live up to its name? Only You can decide.


Canadians are all too aware we  have the same old, same old, stuffy bureaucracy;  Conservative or Liberal. Nothing new there.  Falling back  into the same  old rabbit-holes dug by daddy in the old days,  Justin? More senators for the corrupt, incompetent  senate?...Oops. Abolish the senate. Nope...

Alice, how good is your memory of the old rabbit-hole?... The one before 'because it is 2015', yes, that one...  the "Progressive Conservative Government rabbit-hole. Mad hatters galore.       Yes, sadly, for ten years we had  a "Progressive Conservative" government that was anything but 'progressive'.  In fact it was   destructive, self-serving, corporate-enabling, and regressive Harperism.  Hello?   Anybody home?  Anyone still down there?  Is that an echo  we hear?  Oh, right. Nobody's  home.  No matter,  Alice, isn't  it reassuring to know that for ten years, there was nothing new in that neighbourhood either?

 The Liberal Way: Showmanship

We have a younger,  popular Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who loves taking gaga cozy- selfies with the ladies and desperate, equally ga-ga  Ontario premiers,  installing equal-gender cabinets, wielding punchy  red boxing gloves, and hugging lame duck U.S. presidents because it is popular to do so.  Justin also bravely masters  canoe-paddling in glass-calm waters, and pays much attention  to trendy and 'politically-correct' public events;  grins and waves flags at happy Pride gyrating rainbow parades, meets Syrian refugees at airports with parkas when he is not  enabling Muslim celebrations of various sorts,  visiting ancient Europeans, royal majesties and attending summits of various sorts —among other  potential and  glorious photo ops.

Alice, we are almost tempted to offer one point to the Liberal way here,   #Justin has #oldPierre  beaten by a Liberal mile, but— is  'popularity' genuine progress in governance or merely feel-good Liberal opportunism and demonstrated social manipulation?  Lucky reader, you alone get to decide.  Think.

The Liberal Way:  Legislation

Dabbling in legislation is a sure sign there are insufficient photo ops in Ottawa on any given day.   Setting up  dabbling, double-speak-babbling Liberal-loaded committees which study and guarantee legislation is set up the Liberal way is palatable proof the inner workings from #oldPierre's era have not changed. No points awarded here  for imitating #JeantheChoker, either, Alice. Why, you ask?

Liberals know what is best for everyone, no doubt,  so we must allow such 'governments'  to inflict their meaningful solutions to serious  social issues like 'Legal Right to a Medically-Assisted Death' legislation.   With the Liberal way, however, some very ill patients living in agony are excluded  and do not qualify because the patient simply  hasn't met the Liberal way criterion, being dead in the near future.  Apparently Justin's fine, intellectual  and informed committee members collectively believe  it is acceptable to continue to inflict pain upon desperately-ill, suffering patients, and to ignore rulings  and deadlines from The Supreme Court of Canada — and have simply passed another law which cannot  pass scrutiny of the Canada Charter which guarantees equal treatment of ALL Canadians--including the human right to choose when to die, and to legally request competent medical assistance to die when and if that choice is made. 

Smoke and Mirrors, Alice?

Never mind considering  the legalization of marijuana, as promised, Trudeau's "a carefully-loaded" committee of persons "concerned with the health" of Canadians,  ex-law enforcement officials,  and other individuals previously committed to the continued prohibition of cannabis  ( hell-bent on keeping pot illegal") are 'studying' and temporarily ensuring  the status quo, the  continued arrest and ridiculous prosecution of individuals  who simply choose to possess, grow or purchase their own cannabis plant for any purpose. Decriminalization of marijuana is not on the books until new 'liberal' rules, controls, and shackles have been installed —which clearly remove choice from Canadians, and cast into doubt  the definition of "liberal".

Perhaps that pre-programmed committed group should instead consider  the consequences of  the illegal drug trade, big Pharma chemical drug profiteering, the cost to Universal health care,  tobacco, cigarettes, and vaping of equally-poisonous chemicals.  Alice, we fail to see the logic  of perpetuating a foolishly ineffective, and costly  'war on drugs' which has been a complete failure.  

You get the idea.  Bottom line, No points offered for the Liberal way here,  either, Justin.  It is apparent that "Meaningful legislation is NOT the Liberal way' .  "Control  of everything including the lives of Canadians comes to mind. Lying and broken political Liberal promises come to mind.

Alice, at the next party in La-La-Land,  do you think the Mad Hatter could pour some common-sense , wake-up logic down the old Liberal rabbit-hole?  Would that help? 

Perhaps Canadians should give some thought to whether  the Liberal way has simply been deceptive marketing  of the narcissistic new, 'same old, same old'  —and let us know.

Is Justin's Canada still suffocating in the same old Liberal straight-jacket?  You decide.

Tea party, anyone?


*Hint: Check out the definition of "Liberal", unless Justin's committees have ordered the burning of all dictionaries.
