111 – What has Become of Our Capacity to Reason?

It has not been my intent to write about current events. My focus has been, and will continue to be, a Vision of an attainable world void of the dogmatism that leads us into division and hate and destruction, a Vision of a world open to our understanding of the natural processes from which we emerge into Life. But in lieu of the irrationality of current events, it is impossible to remain silent.

In the midst of an unprecedented environmental crisis, and without immediate threat to its sovereignty, the United States … with the subdued assent of its citizens … is on its march to war, again.

The ‘stated’ reason for this war is to destroy a brutal people who call themselves the Islamic State (or IS or ISIL or ISIS), a people engendered, mind you, by humiliation and hate for the gruesome devastation of their homeland.

But the ‘real’ reason for the United States to go to war is not to destroy ISIS, but to destroy its own weaponry (which was provided initially to rebel factions and is now in the hands of ISIS), and with full knowledge that the countries in the region are abundantly armed to handle the threat, to provide fresh new weaponry to ‘moderate’ rebel factions, thus gorging the ravenous apparatus of the greediest and most destructive corporation on earth.

We have done many irrational things in our evolution … it is supposed to be the way we learn … but instead of growing wiser, we are growing more and more irrational.

Nature has nurtured us for thousands of years, endowing us with the capacity, the resources, the intelligence, the ingenuity to advance the course of our development by imparting Education … free of dogma and the influence of money interests … to every human being on earth; to focus on expanding, not restricting, the reach of the human mind; and instead of inciting conflict, to resolve it with tolerance and understanding of its roots.

It is therefore terribly sad to see that in the face of the greatest environmental crisis Humanity has ever faced, the current leading power on earth … the people that showed us all a most beautiful experiment in Freedom … willingly walking, for all the wrong reasons, into the most irrational course imaginable.

What has become of our capacity to Reason?
