Two more thoughts. First, I am fully aware there are bad guys out there. It’s the bad guy “in here” I’m concerned about, the one who justifies doing bad things because we are the good guys. Not to mention learning directly from the bad guys how best to do bad.
We can no longer afford to practice terror in order to “defeat” it. As we are learning in every area from biology to psychology to spirituality, it is always more efficient, effective and beneficial to build health instead of trying to destroy illness.
Second thought is in regards to the cabal of sociopathogens that has had its death grip on America. In the documentary, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, we see the two non-heroes, Jeffrey Skilling and Ken Lay, running their number until the very last second. They look, act and sound like legitimate business folk until the manacles are slapped on and they are frog-walked to the paddy wagon. We can expect Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the rest to play it legit until the very end.
But just as surely as the Iron Curtain came down, the Irony Curtain must come down, too.
The wall of lies will topple just as the Berlin Wall did two decades ago. Only this time, it will be we the people who topple it from the bottom up. It is the only way it can happen.
Happy Independence Day.
P.S. Finally, if you find nothing to laugh at in these serious times, try this. It's a video clip from The Onion, called "Bush Tours America to Survey Devastation Caused by His Presidency."
