Business As Usual? con'd

“While I dance I cannot judge, I cannot hate, I cannot separate myself from life. I can only joyful and whole. That is why I dance,” Hans Bos.

“When you have come to the edge…and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught to fly,” Patrick Overton

Yesterday, I wrote that unless we’re motivated to shift from the ego’s nightmare to spirit’s happy dream, unless we experience a need to shift, had enough of the ego’s BS and want spirit’s peace and joy instead, we will not shift and things will stay as they are. The idea/belief that what’s going on in American political discourse is business as usual because all politicians lie, prevents us from experiencing the need to shift. So called ‘conservatives’ are serial liars beyond anything the USA has experienced in recent history.

“There is little that is truly conservative about what we are seeing,” Pitts says. “No, this is extremism , true believers so rigidly committed to their ideological crusades that they feel justified in vandalizing reason and sacrificing integrity in furtherance of their cause. The end justifies any means. So, as was the case with Jon Kyle, if you can’t prove your point with the facts at hand, make up some and prove it with those.

“It says much about the intellectual state of what passes for conservatism and the intellectual state of the union itself that this sort of behavior has become business as usual, just another day. This cannot end well. To continue down this path is to carve out a future of intellectual incoherence and international irrevlevance, to doom ourselves to yet more of a fractured political discourse that is loud, ignorant and incapable of reason, much less resolution.”
