Words Have Consequences: Law of Attraction and Action/Reaction :
This is not about Sarah Palin, but nor is it just about yet another deranged lone gunman. It’s about two things, the victims and “We the People” allowing our Media, Corporate America and Government to divide and conquer us into two warring camps of self-loathing and hate. We’ve encouraged our Media to evolve from news worthy to overly repetitive unsubstantiated gossip instead of “just the facts.” In a race to beat the competition and stroke the masses, many untruths were all over the internet, cable, radio and network TV.
REAP WHAT WE SOW
Our transformation from The UNITED States of America to “a House Divided Against itself” did not start with a bloody weekend in the Tombstone State, but this transformation definitely gave young Christina Green short American life was bookended by Foreign hate on 9/11 and domestic hate on 1/8/11. Humankind has tried “an eye for an eye,” shootouts at the OK Corral and “the war to end all wars” and none of them have worked, and still in August 2009, town meetings became shouting matches for the loudest extremists – some for hire, some afraid, angry and frustrated, but most true patriots trying to get someone to listen to them, by shouting at the top of their lungs.
CAUSE and EFFECT
Pima County Sheriff Dupnik was not branding all Arizonians with any labels, but rather warning all Americans if we don’t relearn the art of reasonable conversation, factual debate and open two-way communication of all ideas, then we will in fact become the most extreme and the least mentally balanced among us. In this post Christina Green era, may we find the courage to listen and to recapture our essence as a united people.
The fix must come from those at the top who have the means to influence the masses, but it is time for the masses to stop acting like sheep and demand with petitions, calls, emails, peaceful sit-ins to require responsibility and accountability from all leaders and from ourselves. Scrubbing websites after the violence to which they contribute is too little too late.
“NO MAN IS AN ISLAND”
Not since Lincoln have we been told of the conspiracy to commit murder, and while it certainly seems this American/Tucson tragedy resulted from one mentally unstable person pulling the trigger, I’m weary of the constant rerun of “deranged lone assassin” sounding more and more like a redundant movie script each time the government, media and their financial & oil branches trot out the programmed news conference. It is secondary who shot or even why, what is primary is what, as a nation are we ready to do to prevent it. How about more mental health research and insurance coverage and how about no more cross hair targets on anyone’s district or state?
Everyone needs to communicate responsibly, but most especially ALL Radio & Cable Talk Shows and Politicians need to realized both sides are being talked into a second Civil War. All must reach out in peace, but without a major mind-set shift in political & media “man up” nonsense equating our Americanism with cowboy gun toting abroad and at home, the next war will be an all American production for destruction.
