Do We Really Live in an Elaborate Mental Asylum?

September 27, 2018

Sigmund Fraud, Staff Writer
Waking Times

“If he can only perform good or only perform evil, then he is a clockwork orange—meaning that he has the appearance of an organism lovely with colour and juice but is in fact only a clockwork toy to be wound up by God or the Devil.” ~Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange

When they lock you up in a mental institution three things happen: your physical freedom is taken away, your health freedom is taken away, and you’re stuck with crazy people.

Trying to understand today’s society is an exercise in madness, it just doesn’t make sense, unless you buck the indoctrination into high-minded concepts like democracy, freedom, justice and liberty. These things should mean something extraordinary and noble, but the concepts have been commandeered for use as propaganda. They’ve become diluted by corruption and are now devoid of their true meaning. They now serve more to limit our ability to see things for what they really are, than to provide us with a playing field on which to create and prosper freely in life.

In truth, though, the world in which we have today is profoundly sick. Dr. Sebi, a natural health physician and plant-based diet advocate was heavily persecuted by the medical establishment for criticizing and providing alternatives to the medicine for profit paradigm.

Dr. Sebi understood that many of the institutionalized ways of being in our culture amount to insanity.

“A society that keeps cures a secret so they can continue to sell medication for huge profits is not a real society but a huge mental asylum.” – Dr Sebi

And he’s right, isn’t he? Why would a sane person withhold a cure from another human being?

But our culture does this with all things beneficial and good. Especially in the medical field. For example, we know a plant-based diet can reverse diabetes in as little as thirty days, but anti-diabetic medicines have become a $72 billion a year and rising niche market.

It’s insanity, but everyone else is going along with it, and so we have to acknowledge that we’re stuck here on this beautiful blue rock in space with a bunch of crazy people.

The Oxford dictionary defines insane for us:

in·sane

inˈsān/

adjective

adjective: insane
  1. 1.
    in a state of mind that prevents normal perception, behavior, or social interaction; seriously mentally ill.
    “certifying patients as clinically insane”
     
    • (of an action or quality) characterized or caused by madness.
      “charging headlong in an insane frenzy”
    • in a state of extreme annoyance or distraction.
      “a fly whose buzzing had been driving me insane”
    • (of an action or policy) extremely foolish; irrational or illogical.
      “she had an insane desire to giggle”

One of the great sages of our time, Jiddu Krishnamurti, also knew just how crazy this place is. But he warned us not to make it feel like home, not to get too cozy with it, not to get too adjusted and domesticated by it all.

“It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” ~Jiddu Krishnamurti

Nearly all of the serious problems we have in the world have tangible, practical solutions, yet so many of these solutions are repressed or rolled out ridiculously slowly under manipulation by entrenched industries. Clean energy technologies, permaculture, biodegradable materials, psychedelics, natural cures… you name it.

 

And if you ignore this madness, you’re engaging in cognitive dissonance. Which is a sort of layman’s cure for the psychic discord we naturally get for not stepping up and taking control of our own lives. For allowing others with money on the line to tell us what’s best for us.

But fret not, this information is meant to empower you.

So often, as human beings do, we need to be startled before we spring into acton to save ourselves. It’s in our nature. And this information is part of that wake up call. The message is simple. You have extraordinary control over your health and wellness, if only you will take control and stop deferring to a system that is prioritized around sales and stock gains.

Otherwise you’re just another crazy person in an insane world.

Koyaanisqatsi- Life out of Balance.

 
Koyaanisqatsi is an experimental film and the first part of the Qatsi trilogy by Godfrey Reggio, which deals with man's intervention in Nature and generally critical of civilization with the human way of Life.
The film was released in 1982.
With his sequels Powaqqatsi (1988) and Naqoyqatsi (2002), Koyaanisqatsi forms the Qatsi trilogy.
Koyaanisqatsi is the best known of the trilogy and is considered a cult film.

directed by Godfrey Reggio
Music by Philip Glass
Cinematography by Ron Fricke
https://www.koyaanisqatsi.org/films/koyaanisqatsi.php
 
The film consists primarily of slow motion and time-lapse photography of cities and many natural landscapes across the United States.
The visual tone poem contains neither dialogue nor a vocalized narration: its tone is set by the juxtaposition of images and music.
In the Hopi language, the word Koyaanisqatsi means 'crazy life, life in turmoil, life out of balance, life disintegrating, a state of life that calls for another way of living', and the film implies that modern humanity is living in such a way.

Der Film erschien 1982.
Mit seinen Fortsetzungen Powaqqatsi (1988) und Naqoyqatsi (2002) bildet Koyaanisqatsi die Qatsi-Trilogie.
Koyaanisqatsi ist der bekannteste der Trilogie und gilt als Kultfilm.

Regie Godfrey Reggio
Musik von Philip Glass
Kameraführung durch Ron Fricke
Der Film besteht hauptsächlich aus Zeitlupen- und Zeitrafferaufnahmen von Städten und vielen Naturlandschaften in den Vereinigten Staaten.
Das Bildtongedicht enthält weder einen Dialog noch eine vokalisierte Erzählung: Sein Ton wird durch die Gegenüberstellung von Bild und Musik bestimmt.
In der Hopi-Sprache bedeutet das Wort Koyaanisqatsi 'verrücktes Leben, Leben im Aufruhr, Leben aus dem Gleichgewicht, Leben zerfällt, ein Lebenszustand, der eine andere Lebensweise erfordert', und der Film impliziert, dass die moderne Menschheit so lebt.

          'Wenn es hundert Menschen gibt, die diesen Film zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt in einem Theater sehen, dann könnte es hundert verschiedene Standpunkte darüber geben'.
und
          '... (...) meine eigene Meinung als Künstler über meine Arbeit hat den gleichen Wert wie die eines Zuschauers'.

The Paradox of Freedom and Justice

August 28, 2018

Gary Z McGee, Staff Writer
Waking Times

“Absolute freedom mocks justice. Absolute justice denies freedom. To be fruitful, the two ideas must find their limits in each other.” ~Albert Camus, The Rebel

Standing on the shoulder of the philosophical giant Albert Camus in order to see further is no easy task. But we’re going to attempt it anyway through use of metaphor, analogy and a story.

Setting the stage:

“There’s nothing fundamentally wrong with people. Given a story to enact that puts them in accord with the world, they will live in accord with the world. But given a story to enact that puts them at odds with the world, as ours does, they will live at odds with the world.” ~Daniel Quinn

Imagine you and your partner are on a deserted island. You’ve not only been surviving but thriving. You are happy and healthy. Life is good. Then one day two more partners arrive. You figure: people are free. Nobody owns the island (the tragedy of the commons is for another article). I have no reason to hinder these people from traveling where they wish as long as they don’t try to hinder me or my partner. So, you cooperate. You get to know each other. Your group of four members gets along well and things actually get easier. You’re thriving even more than you were before. Life is good.

A week later two more people arrive. Then two more the week after that. Before you know it, you have a small tribe of 24 people who all get along with only the occasional bickering and misunderstanding. You are a thriving community. Life is good.

Then one day two new people show up on the island brandishing weapons and declaring the island their own. They try to use fear and the threat of violence to gain control of the tribe. And they declare from that point on that if anybody else shows up they will be killed on sight out of fear that they would destroy the tribe or the island. They also demand that each partnership gives them ten percent of their wealth in return for their “leadership” and for keeping the island safe.

Here is the critical crux, the precarious crossroads, where an important decision must be made. What do you do? Do you give in, thinking: Everyone is free to do what they want, including these two men. They are free to use violence to force the tribe under their control. Might makes right, and they have all the might. Who am I to question their authority?

Or, do you resist, thinking: everyone is free to do what they want up until the point that they become violent towards others. Otherwise, there is no justice. I must not only question their authority but defend what I love against it.

Absolute freedom mocks justice (scenario 1):

“When there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.” ~Gandhi

Luckily, you have training. You were a Navy SEAL before your travels. So, you are able to defend the island tribe against the would-be violent extremists. You’re forced to use violence, sure, but only in self-defense and in defense of the health of the tribe. And you only use the proper amount of violence for the occasion.

 

You are able to subdue the violent extremists without having to kill either of them. But you know that, had the circumstance been kill or be killed, or kill or allow the tribe to be ruled by violent extremists, you would have had to kill them. You are peaceful up until the point that you are forced into having no other choice to defend what you love with violence. Their freedom to brandish their weapons ended when they used those weapons in an attempt to hinder your freedom. Thus, allowing them absolute freedom to be violent would have made a mockery of justice.

So. You give them a choice. Either they leave on their own account or they remain and choose to be non-violent against the otherwise peaceful tribe. Any further acts of violence will either result in death or imprisonment. Your courage-based lifestyle prevents you from worrying if they will come back with an armada or not. You refuse to live a fear-based lifestyle. The world is a dangerous place. So be it. You take danger as it comes. Your conscience is clear as long as you don’t harm anyone (outside of self-defense) and as long as you live a courage-based life despite the fear, violence, and cowardice of others.

But, there are others in the tribe who are afraid. They demand that you kill the violent extremists. “We don’t have your training” they say. “What if they come back with bigger guns?” “What if they come back with an army?” To which you reply: “What if we get hit by a tsunami or a hurricane?” “What if we run out of food?” “What if we all come down with some strange disease?” The answer to my questions is the same as the answer to your questions: We do our best. We prepare. We defend ourselves. We remain healthy. And the first step in remaining healthy is having a clear conscience.”

Absolute justice denies freedom (scenario 2):

“A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it.” ~Rabindranath Tagore

 

Too bad you don’t have any self-defense training. And nobody else in your tribe seems to either. Sadly, everyone lives in fear. Your once thriving community is still thriving, but now it’s in a depressed state of soft-slavery. Sure, you’re on a beautiful island eating well and comfortable enough and the so-called leaders only take ten percent of your food and water and valuables, but it could be worse. You could be dead.

One guy tried to disarm the violent extremists and he got shot dead. What an idiot. What was he thinking? Why rock the boat? Why risk your own life? You suppose, there’s a fine line between courage and stupidity and that guy fell on the wrong side of the line.

A week later two more new people sailed up in their boat, just like everyone else had. And sure enough, the two violent extremists killed them! Just like that. Shot them on the shoreline. Their personal journey ended by naked violence. Their freedom of movement cut off by naked tyranny.

You are able to convince your new “leaders” that maybe we shouldn’t kill the new people. That it’s too extreme and it’s causing the rest of the tribe to be unproductive. They take your advice and decide to initially detain anyone who arrives and wishes to stay. As long as they obey their laws and pay ten percent to the “leaders” they can roam freely. Otherwise, they must leave or be killed.

They also decide to make you third in charge for your sound advice. They say it’s because there was a noticeable production increase since they changed their confrontation tactics. You are also tasked with keeping the tribe in line. You decide to roll with it.

 

 

 

You now eat better and have better quarters than anyone other than the “leaders.” You’re comfortable and secure under their hyperviolent safety. You’ve become indifferent to their laws. You’ve become apathetic to the plight of other travelers. Absolute justice has denied true freedom, but at least you’re not dead.

Freedom and justice must find their limits in each other:

“Research indicates that when we’re angry at others, we aim for retaliation or revenge. But when we’re angry for others, we seek out justice and a better system. We don’t just want to punish; we want to help.” ~Adam Grant

Which “you” would you choose to be? Obviously, there are many different scenarios that could have unfolded. For example: you could have been untrained in self-defense and still found ways to undermine their authority: going rogue, counting coup, silent mutiny, civil disobedience, convincing others to revolt. You get the point.

Notice the common theme: That which violates the non-aggression principle tends to be unhealthy, immoral, and unjust; and that which honors the non-aggression principle tends to be healthy, moral, and just.

It seems that violence is the dividing line. One’s freedom is paramount up until the point that one becomes violent and thus violates the non-aggression principle.

Caveat: Just as one should not believe in absolute justice or absolute freedom, one should not take the non-aggression principle as an absolute. The non-aggression principle is merely a guide through the thick brambles of the human condition. It is a solid standard to practice but must be used flexibly on rare occasions like when it comes to property rights and the tragedy of the commons. Proceed with nonviolent caution.

Other than the tension between freedom and justice, another interesting point the story brings up is the tug-o-war between courage and fear. Notice how powerful a force fear is. Killing someone out of fear that if you don’t kill them now they may come back later and try to kill you again is just plain cowardice. It may seem “smart,” but it’s merely a logical fallacy known as the slippery slope. It leads to a fear-based lifestyle filled with unnecessary anxiety, paranoia, xenophobia, and irrational thinking. Which can all lead to violence. Worst of all, if you did convince yourself to kill the perp, you’d have to live with your bad conscience. Life is too short to live that way. Better to just be courageous. Take life as it comes. Be prepared for the worst but hope for the best.

At the end of the day, freedom must find its limit in justice and justice must find its limit in freedom. Otherwise, we either find ourselves living in a free-for-all state where anybody can do anything without any consequences (think the movie The Purge), or we’re living in a violent authoritarian state with oppressive laws and little freedom (think statism). If I had to choose between the two, I’d definitely go with the former. Let the chips fall where they may. But, ideally, reasonably, morally, freedom balanced with justice and justice balanced with freedom is the healthiest way.
