Pathways of Power- Do we choose the light or the dark?
Everyone already hates America, and that enmity won’t go down until they have to deal with America, face to face, and hand to hand.
Always easy to hate that which you don’t have to deal with. Such masters of manipulation like the Palestinians know this quite well.
Power is a pure thing. What it crushes, stays crushed. What it breathes life into, stays alive. Until crushed that is.
The point is rather that people will hate Neo-Neocon, totally independent of how much power she has over their lives.
But when met against real power, the power as presented by a Tiannaman square for example, or a Hama Rule, or even a simple thing as the Secret Police of various countries around the world, then and only then will people understand. They might still hate, but they will now hate from understanding, instead of just brainwashing and ignorance.
America’s power is a derivative, of sorts, of what we see enacted in this world.
Meaning, all power while being pure, is not equal. Some are more effective and stable than others. Some kinds of power are built and derived from purer and more good sources. Other kinds of power were developed and achieved through blood sacrifices, which isn’t as pure.
America’s power is of such a nature that it actively fights against the forces of darkness, despair, chaos, and disorder.
Where it is actively defeated and overcome, pure chaos and death will reign. Where the power of America contests with the power of the Soviets for example, even a physical wall might be built out of the sorrows and regrets of such a conflict.
But even the light must make way to the darkness, as we see everytime in which American power is extended across the globe. It stays and touches a people for a time… a short time, and then it leaves, it retreats back into the origins of the light.
So it is a rather ongoing struggle. Of the light against the darkness, and the darkness against the light.
This has been America’s history for some centuries now.
The power of America is not complete. Meaning if you only have the power of the light, then you are only operating at 50% maximum duty cycle. The power of darkness is a corruptive presence, it all enveloping, in that it fatigues and lays waste to life. If America attempted to use the power of light and hope to push back the power of despair, we ourselves would fall prey to the enervating energies of darkness itself. Our treasury spent, our lifeblood shed, nothing more than a tasty morsel to be snatched up by predators. Such was the light of South Vietnam extinguished. The darkness is not permanent either, but during such ages without light and hope, much despair resulted.
The struggle between one and the other thing is reflected in the human soul. Good and evil. Order and chaos. life and death. Peace and war. Are we ever fully human without both parts? Are pacifists utilizing the complete power of their souls by shunning violence and war?
This connects to America’s power in this manner. America has always tried for a light touch. No puppet governments. Attempts at keeping the status quo to prevent the spread of disorder.
But now a days, that isn’t enough. The forces of darkness are on the march, spreading not only from the Middle East, but from Europe and Asia as well.
No longer is the power of America sufficient, given the limitations we now face. So we must now surpass our limitations. Can America utilize the power of darkness as well as that of the light?
The powers of death as well as the power to save lives? The power of absolute destruction as well as the power to rebuild?
Hate and love, peace and war. These are the issues we face today, regardless of whether they are symbolized by the light or the dark or some gray inbetween.
Neo cannot purge her bleeding heart from her chest…. because that is what gives her strength, it is that which gives her the power to control and manipulate the ability to support dealing death to looters, in public, in front of the eyes of the world. She should not purge her compassion, for only compassion may hold the dread darkness of death in the grips of the goals for civilization.
What is the ability to kill without compassion? The Islamic Jihad has it. What is compassion without the dark desire of death and killing? The fake liberals, the socialists, those who promote dictators and are then purged by those that they brought to power (Iran, Russia) are familiar with it..
I’ve said this before and I’ll repeat it.
Only those who truely love, can truely hate another person, object, or belief.
Not everyone on the right loves the Iraqis as brothers in arms. Some just love the Kurds. And the same applies to the left. Not everyone on the left hates the Iraqis and the Kurds. Hitchins, people like Neo with the ability to transform and transfer over. Surely they exist.
But the nature of power cares not for who exists and where they exist in. It only cares for results. What is the result of the Left’s views and philosophy. What is the result of the neo-con’s views and philosophy.
If the United States can truely crush evil and despair with the hand of justice, then it will not matter who criticizes the US. For such a victory alone would be worth the ire of satan for eternity.
But there are human beings who cannot love others, for they love only themselves. And there are human beings who cannot hate, so their every action becomes a matter of “love” free or self (Jane Fonda).
But is it really true? Are there human beings who cannot hate, cannot love, cannot destroy or cannot create? of course not. They only fool themselves into believing so. The nature of power is that it is indiscriminate, regardless of what created it. Electricity… hydraulics. It matters not. Such power can both crush you and save you, destroy and create, strengthen and weaken.
And now we come back to the original subject. The power of America fights against the forces of darkness because America has herself conquered and defeated such darkness in her own soul, in the souls of her citizens, in the 50 states of America. That is why American power when extended over such nations like Germany, Japan, and south Korea brings prosperity, peace, and economic miracles. (Kurdistan as well)
The power of America is not purely of the light. It cannot be purely of one nature or another simply because power itself is indiscriminate. Only humans discriminate.
So when you see America extend her hands across the world, know this. The darkness of the world can just as easily trace America’s shafts of light back to us, and destroy us with our own power, feedbacked a thousand million times.
Only by mastering all that there is to master in the terms of power, projecting power, purifying power, and the use of power may America have a chance at standing up to all the evil in this world of ours.
War, total or otherwise, is simply a means to practice and test your mastery of the pathways of power. Are you able to exercise wise judgement in using your nation’s resources in destroying the enemy? Or shall you become dust in the ash bins of history…Explore posts in the same categories: Culture
