In many people's minds, the corporations are the employers of the general population and the ones who provide food, shelter, education and entertainment. What would the news look like without the corporate driven news stations providing divisive drama shows such as CNN, Fox, and MSNBC? These are truly unbiased news? What would our health look like beyond the Kentucky Fried Chickens and McDonald's of the world that sponsor these stations?

We have a free press? Are we delusional?

Or, are the stations, CNN, Fox and MSNBC just different ways of presenting the news that align to people's political takes (e.g., conservative, liberal) yet which are owned and operated by major corporations? Could all our either/or divisions be but a masquerade of the truth?

Divide and Conquer. The apparent battles of 'liberal' CNN and 'conservative' Fox are orchestrated drama shows that keep people in an entertainment mode while they are being brainwashed by the "Man Behind the Curtain," i.e., the corporations. "Yes, Dorothy, you are not in Kansas anymore. And, yes, my dear, the Wizard is a farce and your fears of death (the Witch of the West, Sunset) and your desire for rebirth (the Witch of the East, Sunrise) are enticed by the Wizard to keep you in line."

Could it be that our mindsets are what place us into hell? In our surrender to the "Man", i.e., the corporation (the Wizard), our awakening is to know Oz is a dream / nightmare and we are still asleep or knocked unconscious in Kansas (a metaphor for non-duality, or unity: a world of unified relationship).

Then there is that darned witch of the West! Who is She? Easy, She is the counterpart-twin of Her sister, the witch of the East, the point of sunrise. Yes, the Witch of the West is the point of sunset, the place of death. She is more than just the witch of death; She is the fear of death.

Yes, sir, a little water sprayed by the upset Dorothy who is attached to her little dog Toto (Dorothy's instinctual nature who also revealed that the Wizard was a farce) and ultimately causes the ole biddy Witch to melt into a pool of wax.
