What Are We Doing?

There was a time in which people with anger management problems and other hostilities, were directed to at least acknowledge these resentments -- instead as they do now, ask them to give the proper assessment of the state of mind for the rest of society as the model to conform to as the current “politically correct” way of thinking. Yet that is precisely what is happening in today’s entertainment of what is going on in the world today -- that celebrities of every repute, are being asked to determine the course the country should be heading, and particularly, advise, what the President should do, on all the most important matters, of critical and historic importance.

That’s apparently what the “news” has devolved to -- that anybody’s opinion is just as valid, if they are famous enough, no matter how they derived that notoriety. And of course, bashing the President vociferously and scandalously, is revered as the highest of attainments. Each interviewee therefore, hopes to shock and scandalize even more than has been achieved thus far -- even while their greatest claim to fame, was successfully “pretending” to be somebody of great importance.

That might even have been a porn star -- if they are endorsing the “politically correct” person. Under those circumstances, one doesn’t know who is endorsing whom. All that matters, is that they are well-known -- as though fame itself is unconditional.

But the end of every excess, is simply being attentive enough to be aware of this -- and not that anything has to be done to reverse and counter this process. In fact, such acts and energies, would be an indication that one isn’t fully aware of these insensibilities that any attentive person would simply not resort to. That is the mindlessness of not thinking for oneself -- but letting others do the thinking for everyone else, and going along, thinking we are solving the problem, rather than manifesting the problem.

There is no good mindlessness; one is either mindful or not, and when there is mindfulness, one doesn’t need to be told what to do, or tell another what to do, which is an indication of mindlessness. People will do everything they can -- to avoid mindfulness -- as the conditioned response, to avoiding knowing who they are and what is going on. But only in being fully there, can any human problem ever be solved. Otherwise, it is only carried over into every other problem -- of avoidance.

Some people become very good at it. They are always solving some problem in the future -- and not the one in the present. And problems can only be solved in the present -- which is the manner of communications and interaction of that discussion. As people are purportedly solving some great problem in the future, there are creating the problems of the present, in the discussion of them. That discussion is always deferred and prolonged by the manner in which it is conducted -- that nobody is allowed to speak authentically with any other, in creating a solution that did not exist before all the parties walked into that discussion.

That was the limitation of mass communications -- that produced the inability to actually communicate authentically and personally -- which solves all problems.

Most people are not aware of how much the forums actually limit the discussion -- rather than enable them. So they think they are being very open-minded people to conduct a forum in which they control the dialogue and discussion -- yet proclaiming proudly that their decisions are based on a free and democratic discussion of the issue -- when it is just a mockery and sham of any free and open discussion.

That's mostly what Hawaii government and politics have become -- and why so many don't take it seriously anymore, as worthy of their time, energy and concern -- but are determined to go on with living beyond the control and manipulations of government.

And now that is still entirely possible to do -- even though some people think the government controls everything. That, obviously, is not true -- though some lives are more impacted than others.

Government employees and beneficiaries certainly have a reasonable expectation of greater government intrusion into their lives as a trade-off. Undoubtedly it would be great to receive as great a compensation and benefits without having to account for any performance and merit as one's entitlement.

In that scenario, "from those who are the most productive, to those who demand them the most vociferously and unfairly" -- is the new "socialist" imperative.
