Amid Censorship and Conflict, We Stand Straight
The news in this collection is not so great but the big picture is still the same. In all this mess, there is meaning and an opportunity to remember who we really are.
This story is about mostly unpleasant things, and the bird is here for perspective and as a reminder that we are free.
#1 The ugly, totalitarian beast of censorship
Here is a lawyer’s take on how the state and big companies work together to suppress dissenting opinions. Question: Are we living in a democracy? Answer: No, we are not.
This might be flying under the radars of the COVID-compliant citizens and business owners but big payment platforms are closing the accounts of dissenting groups—and not only that, they are also trying to steal the funds—which is much like a modern, digital version of Bolshevik property expropriation based on “wrongthink.”
#2 The hell has frozen AGAIN, and the pigs are flying
(While the pigs are flying, they are still lying since this particular side effect is NOT rare, dammit, and saying that it’s rare is cruel and dishonest. And yeah, it is very likely that the journos at the bottom of the food chain are delusional and sincere but this is none the less very cruel.)
#3 A very confusing tragedy
Here is another reminder that we need to be grounded in our internal truth and keep a cool head about everything that is going on in the world. I didn’t want to write about it when I first found out about it yesterday but the word is out, so… There is a rift between Reiner Fuellmich and Viviane Fischer on the Corona Investigative Committee. Below are both of their takes, so that you can make up your own mind. My impression as of this second is that this is a case of heated nerves and miscommunication rather than corruption or bad will. And without a doubt, there is a lot of effort to destroy the movement by any means possible, which means that it is more important than ever to breathe and pray for clarity and peace.
Two more takes:
Without a doubt, the handlers are trying to destroy the freedom movement so that they can push through with their beloved Fourth Industrial Revolution, and there is an effort to mess with people’s heads. There is a lot of confusing energy in the air, so it is very important to stand on our two feet, supported by the nourishing courage of our ancestors and our spiritual faith. The times are difficult, and we don’t know what the immediate future holds, but we are not alone. And as long as we are alive, we can stand tall, pray for our dignity to be protected, and put so much love into this world that the confusion falls off, and love remains.
I would like to end this story with some talks by the late Dagara elder Malidoma Some. The quality of the recording is so so but the spirit is there.
