The Golden Rule

This morning I was feeling a little scatter brained. I think it started when, first thing when I woke up, I got on Google news from my phone. I don’t know why I did it, I just thought that maybe there was something interesting that had happened last night or something that I would find if I browsed the headlines. Of course the only thing anyone can talk about is Trump and his policies. The man has been in office for less than two weeks and he is already getting more attention then the Republicans ever gave to Obama. So this is what started my day off, and it really put me in a little bit of a ‘bad’ mood.

I don’t know if you could call it a bad mood per say. Maybe more of a; got my mind running and thinking about this topic. When I was younger, I used to get wrapped up in politics and would make a lot out of the races and elections. I thought it was a good idea to ponder the policies and argue the topics. But as I grew older I started to see that it is all a ruse, a trick. All of this doesn’t matter, it is all just there to control people and ‘make’ them do things.

Some of this control comes from the top; from the federal or (to a much lesser extent) the state government. There is a lot that comes from big corporations which have interests. No one in their right mind should be thinking that these entities are not acting in their own best interest. There are people however, who fall for this propaganda and will act in accordance with the masses. The thought of the masses prevail in this trickery. And because they are reacting to something that they were told, they are acting in the best interest of the entity who told them such and such thing was right or wrong. The masses think that they are acting in their own interest, but they are being manipulated into acting in the interest of the larger entity when the case suits the entities for the masses to act.

This whole thing is very apparent to me and it is hard for me to imagine now, falling for this type of trick. However, I do think back to when I was young, and there are A LOT of young people who are protesting and ‘re-acting’ to these new stories and policies, and I think about how I fell for the same exact thing myself and thought nothing of it. There is really something to be said about experience and discernment that shows they are very powerful but also illusive things to obtain. It is all about the perspective that you hold which gives you a view of what you think it reality. All in all it is just the perspective and not the objective truth because there really is no such thing as the objective truth. So the things that you are often fighting for or against are not really real at all. Herein is the secret of perception.

My morning was drenched in the thought of all this from the moment I set my eyes on the burden of the news headlines. “Protesters at JFK Airport” – All these news headlines, stories and pictures that are there to grab your attention and make you have a reaction. It is like the little child making fun of the other child because he or she wants to get a reaction out of the kid. It is the same thing with the news and with politics and all of those temporal things. On the schoolyard, if you don’t give the bully a reaction then the bully becomes board with you (or even afraid of you; why is this person so different from the rest?) and will end up moving to the next victim and leave you in peace. This is the right way to respond to all of this, no response.

I have no view on this topic one way or another and for good reason; you only think that you know about the topic but that knowledge is not real, it comes from someone else telling you that such and such is true. How many of the people marching in the streets so quickly have even read the law. None! They have been told that this is bad from an early age and they are defending their beliefs. But the beliefs are not really theirs! They are a set of thoughts that have been planted in their heads. Ask yourself this: Why, if I support gay rights, am I considered ‘left’ on the political spectrum? There is really no such thing as left and right. The reality is that everyone had a unique view and it will never fall completely right or completely left. That is ridiculous. The whole idea of left and right is ridiculous. They are thoughts that have been put into your heads by the government so they can control the masses easier.

The real trick here, the ultimate mission is the government making you certain that if it was not for them, bad things would happen. The goal is to make you think that you ‘need’ the government. Once they have you locked in, they will control you and use you for their own ends. At any time of their choosing, they can activate the right or the left by sending out certain decrees or signing certain policies. But all of this action is not true action, it is a reaction to the activation of the masses. If everyone got along with each other, they might start to figure out that the government is just a burden and suppose it is not needed. No, the only logical thing is to acknowledge that the government has its own priorities first. They make bad things happen and then want more money to fix the bad things. That money goes into more self interest. It is always the case.

My view, my perspective is that we do not need government at all. At any level because of this self interest that is evident. The only person who can, in reality, control you is yourself. Everything else is a trick. Once you realize that you are your own master, that is the only time that you can love others as you love yourself. Do unto others as you would have done to you… The golden rule.

  1. I just posted something about Japanese culture which might interest you as it is somewhat tied to the ending of your post. I’d really like your thoughts. It is the review of a scholarly paper titled “Made in Japan from a Anthropological and psychoanalytical perspective.”
