The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it.  ~Mark 11:12-14 and 11:20-25

We live in a war world, a seemingly perpetual global military industrial complex, where all that is built is created to destroy.  We are all trained and confused to be hateful of brothers and to see others as brothers only if they fit into adopted institutional veils.  Society is so confused we do not know the difference between living and machine, between moral and legal, between indoctrination and freedom, between our thinking and our training.

    You and I form brotherhood.  That' it, that's all.  Any other institutional dogma or requirement put forth on brotherhood is complete confusion to give away instinctual understanding of morality and adopt institutional legality.  We are all brothers.  People who wear uniforms often are referred to as brothers, but just because you wear a leaf from the institutional tree doesn't mean you wear moral authority or are more a part of a brotherhood that those who don't.  You and I form brotherhood, not the uniforms, not the leaves off the tree.  No heroes ever wear uniforms, many acts of heroism are performed while wearing uniforms, but all the great heroes, prophets and brothers never wear leaves of institutional trees.

    In fact the more we look at history, the more we can see that every war has laid the groundwork for every future war.  The career criminals are inspired to become so because of the uniformed criminal careers in the perpetual war world.  There are drug cartels because of the prison industrial complex prohibition that began with marijuana prohibition.  The institutional tree of the global prison industrial complex, a relative of the military industrial complex is simply a corporate charlatan and anyone wears the uniform is not a brother, but an institutional tool.  You and I form brotherhood, not a uniform. 

    Take a look at the history of uniforms.  As people grow weary of wearing them and fighting for destructive institutional trees, new uniforms are sewn to get new recruits excited about donning them and adopting the outline presented by the institutional tree and shedding their humanity, their compassionate brotherhood.  Take a look at what institutional tools wearing uniforms, leaves of the tree, have done to the indigenous people of the world, the indigenous people of the world who like Jesus and Gandhi would never wear a uniform to feel that you and I form.  Take a look at the microcosm of New Brunswick.  People with uniforms have taken from them for generations and today allow institutional trees to harvest the blood of Earth Mother from beneath their feet through fracking.  All they have left is clean water and the uniformed brothers stomp them down. 

    There is no need to be angry at the people in uniforms, it is like being angry dogs for peeing on posts, it's just what they do.  The people in uniforms are only confused.  They were trained and indoctrinated in the war world to think that people, places and things are posts for the big dogs, the authoritative institutions to do what they want.  Take the uniform off.  You were born in the brotherhood of man, uniforms are merely institutional leaves off the evil tree that often shame the wearer.   

    Whether it is immoral prohibition or immoral promotion, in the case of the oligarchical energy interests that destroy air and water and the essence of our wellbeing at every turn, it doesn't matter the legality as far as measure of morality is concerned.  Wrong is wrong no matter if, as in Canada, the destructive resource extraction is sanctified by the Queen of England.  When moral and legal align you have benefit for all and when they do not, when oligarchical institutions collectivize people are robbed of everything.

    There are four types of acts relative to legality and morality, morality using the Golden Rule as our level; moral and legal, moral and illegal, immoral and legal, immoral and illegal.  Peace to the brotherhood of man.  In contrast to Halloween, in light of the spiritually ascended brotherhood of man, take the uniforms and costumes off and you will see real heroes do not wear leaves of institutional trees bearing no fruit.
