Does the Future America offer Peace?
Another Needless Massacre
Once again, the United States of America must face reality. Americans are in shock with the most recent mass shooting occurring in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Another unnecessary tragedy, a horrific killing of 49 innocent people by one unstable, radicalized Muslim; an extremist born in the USA but influenced by ISIS and the challenge of living within a complex, confused North American society . This tragedy is another event which must, at some point, be taken seriously, like it or not, as difficult as only can be imagined, —and politically-correct or not.
To ignore the reality of fanatic extremism is to invite more fanatic extremism and ever more deadly events. How sublime it seems, then, when each occurrence is followed by foolishly ineffective discussions, knee-jerk political responses coupled with bold but meaningless rhetoric and statements of position, copied, seemingly verbatim, from previous horrific mass shootings, bombings, or other horrific events. America must face reality regardless how difficult that process may turn out to be.
America must face reality, look inward and face both the guilt and results of willfully and inexplicably allowing sales of assault rifles and weapons to deranged racists, lunatics and fanatics of all kinds on watch lists, to unstable individuals, radicalized by brutal foreign influence or not. America must take ownership and responsibility for a society so immune to reason that disgruntled opponents, both foreign and native-born Americans themselves , see no other choice but to lash out and kill; turn assault rifles and other weapons against unprotected, soft and innocent civilian targets in their predictable, hopeless rage.
America Must Face Reality
Yes, everyone knows politically-correct society insists: "a mentally-disturbed individual did it." Regardless of description, those who are angry kill, mentally-deranged individuals kill, radicalized fanatics kill, extremists kill, and religious zealots with sick obsessions, motive and questionable agenda kill. Equally guilty are political and religious leaders who kill by failure to lead; governments which kill by failing to govern with reason and common sense, and all organizations and religions which kill by failing to teach peace, tolerance and understanding instead of brutal demands for compliance to narrow-minded theology, barbaric idiocy, revenge, blood-letting and execution. In the minds of desperate zealots of all stripes, no solution or path is offered but that of hopelessness of violence or death itself.
Yes, America must face reality; the hard truth that fanatic American mandates and 'rights' are cast in bitter, brittle fundamentalist self-righteousness, right-wing Republicanism, or equally bitter Democrat blather. It may be observed there is little separation in terms of stubbornness, intolerance, or mindset from that of black-robed, preachy, AK-waving ISIL extremists, bitter, delusional and fanatic jihadists, or Islamic criminals on watch lists, global or home grown.
The common operating madness is the narrow, bitter interpretation of ideology, self-declared 'righteousness' void of respect for others or any responsible, reasonable social response. Politics and religion, now equally unappealing globally, are based upon the unacceptable, deadly, narrow-minded intolerance of others. Justified by quoting verses from the Quran, chapters from a Bible, or 'rules of the self-entitled' from failed, corrupt and out-dated political platforms, the evil dwelling in the unstable minds of radicalized, angry lunatics has but one purpose; a mandate of intimidation, revenge, and fear by mindlessly killing helpless human beings in crowded venues.
Because of a long history of arrogance, greed, endless warfare and exploitation of other nations, elements in America can be held equally responsible for poverty, prejudice, bigotry, injustice, intolerance, and racism resulting in predictable radicalization, terrorism, and fanaticism, all of which are desperate responses of protest and revenge. Events like the massacres which have occurred in Orlando, the Boston massacre, 9/11, and countless other events will continue to happen. When will you get it?
Name them. You know them all. Make excuses. Declare war. Recall the blood, the horror, lifeless bodies, the maimed. Recall broken families, tears, the dearly beloved, injured or lost forever. Mass murders are happening with increasing regularity. The politically-correct may say "Yes, but, innocent people are killed daily by accident too." So sorry, but we must ask; how do YOU not 'get it' ?
The difference is that these events can be stopped. Is it that we simply cannot face the necessity of accepting responsibility for creating ideal conditions for the import of evil, and the generation of home-grown terrorism?
You need not worry about the insanity of religious and political ideological struggles half-way round the world over there, out of sight in the Middle East. The brain- worms of ideological hate, rot, and violence have clearly been imported to North America.
How predictable. Now you, too, can hustle victims from back yard massacres to emergency hospital rooms in the back of pickup trucks. How long will it be before little black pickup trucks are racing everywhere with machine-guns mounted upon them too?
America must make very difficult choices, and soon. Not choices between gun control or the NRA. Not playing political games, refusing to call horrific events radicalized Islamic terrorism by labeling them acts of insanity. Not by choosing to label perpetrators as 'deranged' or 'lone wolves' or Islamic or ISIL -inspired, when they may be all or none of the above. Building fences and banning immigrants from the USA or not doing so, whether red, yellow, black or blue-blood, and being politically-correct —will not resolve the growing problem.
Voting for billionaire Donald Trump and his fence-like brash, careless, racist rhetoric, or alternatively, voting for Hillary Clinton's suspect, pseudo-hawkish, "I can be as tough as Donald Trump" corrupt and meaningless blather about gender-driven 'historical occasions' will make no difference. It is not about choosing male, female or transgender washrooms or same-sex marriage. It is certainly not about choosing Republican or Democrat, with equally ridiculous, equally greedy and equally narrow-minded partisan ideologies —and equally presumptive intent.
It IS a choice between awaking to choose common sense and unity, or choosing apathy, enabling this social disease further, only to watch the shattered American Dream crumble and fail completely .
America must face reality. Reason and common sense have always been stronger foundations to build upon than bitter, mindless, delusional ideology cast in greed, and arrogance. Now is not the time for stupidity.
Simply observe —and think.
That's how we see it. Difficult choices or not, the right choices must now be made for humanity instead of waiting for the inevitable chaos. For the record, peace and hope are that simple.

, angry infidels did I ? the concerned? Neither did we suggest illegals in rusty buses, highly-feared boogey-man socialists, spiffy antique-car driving cigar-smoking communists newly arrived from Cuba, pip-pipping Brits wistfully wishing to reclaim the glory of the British Empire, or disenfranchised but well-educated Buick-owning Baby-Boomers from Miss Putzley's senior home economics class of 1957. Notably missing also are finger-wagging miscellaneous religious fundamentalists, do-gooders and the feared tsunami of Asians in all shades of yellow. There is no need for a plea for anarchy yet, is there?.
Let us imagine they are simple, ultra-right fanatics. Again, we are reminded, not sun-glassed hippies at every intersection who want to wash your windshield for a buck, panhandle with bad guitar-playing in the subway, or those pesky rabid zombies that amble along so beautifully, but bite. They don't sneak across the border bearing backpacks, unexpectedly knocking at Aunt Lily's door at midnight smoking pot, or offer free car washes by Joey's so they can swipe your cell phone and hijack the car too. Not exactly a poignant plea for Anarchy, is it?
Let us imagine instead the anarchists involved already own the show in North America including the popcorn stand. Why invade when you can buy and control everything including political souls? They are the insatiable, unethical, secret, hardened Uber rich. Let's not bother with statistics of the distribution of wealth; the 1% factor is already shocking enough.
Anarchists live well in ivory and gold towers. Well, okay, in walled, exclusive multi-million dollar estates. They call the shots for all political parties, buy national and local lawmakers, lobby for corporate-friendly laws that arrogantly justify and benefit the cultivation of corporate welfare, and equally, encourage public outrage at health care unless they can profit from it, the food stamps programs, child care, and welfare assistance for the poor and homeless. blah blah. You get the idea. If you don't get it, the alarm clock just rang, or was it the busted Liberty bell?
Anarchists exploit precious resources at any cost to the environment, again, as long as it is profitable, and discourage the development of clean energy because they own the infrastructure for dirty, profitable fossil fuels, lock, stock and barrel.
Shutting down North American manufacturing is high on the agenda, cheap third world labour is hired so increasingly trashier goods can be imported ever more profitably. Outrage is expressed if asked to pay fair wages for the remaining North American hamburger-burning jobs while CEO's reward themselves multi-million dollar bonuses for "profitable operations" and profits are secreted off-shore to avoid paying taxes. The high cost of corporate-run medical care and over-priced education are outrageous, maintained as such to groom customers for big Pharma and maintain the population as common serfs, working poor, flocks of ill, ignorant toiling slaves; uninformed sheeple. The pot boils. The bell tries to ring...
Armaments industries owned by anarchists demand a foreign policy of constant warfare to ensure they remain rich. War against the unwilling, you ask? No problem, there are equally greedy arms manufacturing corporations in the lands of foreign hostiles. If not, North Americans cooperate and sell bombs and other armaments to the enemy too. Why not? Terrorism, fear, and war are all happily used to generate fear. Populations afraid are easier to control .
Where are we going? Is it time to plea for anarchy, is it time to ask the rest of potential anarchists to reclaim North America? What do you think? The unthinkable?
Surprise, the 1% Uber-rich and ultra-right are already anarchists living by their own rules in the #corporateaucracy (that would be defined as governance by the rich owning and controlling the political talking bobble-heads ) —a carelessly pre-calculated State of Self-Entitlement and insatiable greed in which they claim everything as their own.
Since logic determines and history demonstrates that abuse of, and corruption within any ideological /political system ultimately causes the demise of those systems, it seems the inevitable must be residual anarchy, the uprising of all; the elderly with their canes, the homeless and disenfranchised vets with sick, hungry children, the working poor, the so-called 'middle class' and students with big dreams but a lifetime of debt incurred for a useless ticket to ride on the uber-rich anarchist bus headed for destruction.
Wait. Wait for the ultimate lunacy and brutality that accompanies such events. Somehow, though, it seems that in North America, the richest lands in the world, ordinary, hard-working people somehow deserve better.
A plea for anarchy? It is not even necessary to ask. Wait until the old guys that built this country by honest, hard pick-and-shovel work get mad. There's nothing quite as scary as P.O'd angry seniors with long memories, and justice-seeking people with sticks —who have just discovered the Great Deceivers. Hold your breath and think...can we hear the Liberty bell ringing?
