‘Home’

“Wish I were with you but I couldn’t stay
every direction leads me away
Pray for tomorrow but for today
all I want is to be home

Stand in the mirror, you look the same
Just lookin’ for shelter from the cold and the pain
someone to cover, safe from the rain
and all I want is to be home

Echoes and silence, patience and grace
All of these moments I’ll never replace
No fear of my heart, absence of faith
And all I want is to be home”by Dave Grohl

Tick-the-tock—Tock-the-tick—Timed—counters red—flashing—descending time—without reason—without rhyme. Closed—too touched—to feel—die-to-live—to-live-to-die—not to try—not to fly—only to—tick-the-tock—and—tock-the-tick—and cry. Meetings—Children die—Meetings—Spirit fly—Migrants’ horror—News Reporters’—Cry—Die—Sigh—still spirits’ fly… Seas of Immigration—Wait—just wait longer and it will all go away—because people will always die…Casualties are always expected? ‘Better-Them-than-Us’… WTF? So many—good folks—are continually afraid—in danger—facing violence and unnecessary death—So many good people—leave Their Homes—too often—too many—to die—and children—Our world of—Children…WTF? Because of religions—governments—WTF? And! The only reason ‘we-be’—is for our—Children…And! ‘Nothing else matters.’

  • From Norm Chomsky during an interview with Simone Chun…

“Do you believe that Americans would support another war?”

Chomsky: “The public is easily amenable to lies: the more lies there are, the greater the support for war. For instance, when the public was told that Saddam Hussein would attack the U.S., this increased support for the war.”

“Do you mean that the media fuels lies?”

Chomsky: “The media is uncritical, and their so-called the concept of objectivity translates into keeping everything within the Beltway. However, Iraq was quite different. Here, there were flat-out lies, and they sort of knew it. They were desperately trying to make connections between Saddam Hussein and 9/11.”

“Do you feel that there will be any significant change in the foreign policy of the United States after President Obama?”

Chomsky: “If Republicans are elected, there could be major changes that will be awful. I have never seen such lunatics in the political system. For instance, Ted Cruz’s response to terrorism is to carpet-bomb everyone.”

“Why does the United States undermine efforts to reach an agreement with North Korea?”

Chomsky: “I don’t think that the United States cares. They just assume that North Korea will soon have nuclear weapons.” If you look at the record, the United States has done very little to stop nuclear weapons. As soon as George W. Bush was elected, he did everything to encourage North Korea to act aggressively. In 2005 we were close to a deal, but North Korea has always been a low priority issue for the United States. In fact, look at the entire nuclear weapons strategy of the United States: from the beginning, in the 1950s, the United States didn’t worry much about a nuclear threat. It would have been possible to enter into a treaty with the one potential threat—the Soviet Union—and block development of these weapons. At that time, the Russians were way behind technologically, and Stalin wanted a peace deal, but the U.S. didn’t want to hear the USSR’s offer. The implication is that the U.S. is ready to have a terminal war at any time.”

‘What’s done in the dark soon comes into the light’… Author unknown

Thomas Hobbes once wrote in his book Leviathan: “[in nature] there is no place for industry, because the fruit thereof is uncertain: and consequently no culture of the earth; no navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by sea; no commodious building; no instruments of moving and removing such things as require much force; no knowledge of the face of the earth; no account of time; no arts; no letters; no society; and which is worst of all, continual fear, and danger of violent death; and the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.”

And! ‘Let there appear—“Free Market”…Government—not required? Without government— No ‘Free Market—can exist.’ It cannot be—without civilization…’True competition’ is a wild ‘dance of survival’ and—only the largest and the strongest win? Oops! Civilization is defined by rules—Rules create markets—and ‘Oh No’—governments’ are— the rule ‘Generator.’ And! Please Do Not believe—that if your paycheck is too small to survive without (2) + jobs and your partner cannot be a ‘stay-at-home parent’ you deserve this—And! That if a precious few—earn billions-of-dollars—for your work—with no sweat or blood—they deserve this—No way! Rules have been altered…Rules have been skewed and the American Government is to blame—it can’t intrude—on a ‘Free Market’—since it must—create that—‘Free Market’…The American Government—creates all ‘free market rules from Our legislatures—Our administrative agencies and our Courts…And! Until they are re-calculated—-‘Nothing else matters’.

“There are two modes of invading private property; the first, by which the poor plunder the rich…sudden and violent; the second, by which the rich plunder the poor, slow and legal.”…Author unknown

Wondering—if Preachers-of-Fear—and—Creatures-of-Hate and a—Collection of Hope—Fraud—Reality-show-Freaks—and Presidential ‘Wanna—Mights’—are nothing—more-or-less—than—distractions—entertainment-to-lure-both-you-and-me—from Legislature failure? And! Pillage or plunder? And! Still—Knowing that—Love Is—or—‘Nothing else—will matter.’

And! Beautiful you are…

  1. I can see the people following the Pied Piper into war. I also see the diffidence towards those in hunger and poverty. Until we walk several miles in another’s moccasins, we have no right to judge. Very enlightening and seriously necessary to hear your voice of reason.
    You have such a great imagination and warm heart, Philip. :)
