Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / What I've learned lately
« on: November 22, 2013, 05:09:26 PM »
I guess I still have a lot to say about Straight and the implications. 

I was already a problem child, for legitimate reasons, from my perspective, and I still view them as legitimate reasons today, although I also acknowledge that I was hurting people in my anger and confusion about the world I was entering into when I was about 14 or 15, 16 years old.  I was placed in Straight Inc. in 1985 as a result of the cumulative effect and my parents inability to relate.

I see now that the trouble goes back far beyond the time I was born or even the time of my parents birth or even my grandparents or their parents either. 

When I consider my trouble, I wonder what they were thinking ... still, there is some wonderment for it.  I think I have spent so long now tenaciously focused on solving the puzzles and realizing truths that I and I have a wide view of the overall social dynamic.

I finally joined face book, even though I think joining fb is one of the surest ways to bring more power to the corrupt authorities already rapin and surveilin the planet.  I got talked into it and now I am in contact with too many people to escape.  Reminds me of Straight, and no wonder why, it is the program.

I don't know what can be done but each person has to become consciously aware of the fundamental dynamic driving each one to submit themselves to the , what I call, "submissive-authoritarian consciousness"

I didn't really want to get into all this on fb, that's just not a very safe forum for discussing such things.  Fornits is better.

Anyway, I been studyin all this now for my whole life and in no formal way but through direct experience, by having made myself a target.  I knew there was trouble comin to me, because I was investigating the system.  I wanted to know what I was up against so I drew it in to me.  Now I know it intimately.  I know where the trouble rests and where it runs.

To avoid difficulty I will cut to the chase now...

Homosapiens have been on the planet for about 190,000 years and we didn't just appear out of thin air.  There's a long evolution, that took millions of years, even for modern humans to evolve from the lower primates.  That is where our DNA comes from.  That is where the roots of our everyday modern behavior are found.  We pretend otherwise, but we are animals.  For millions of years we lived directly in the environment.  Living directly from it.  With it.  It had been a very long and slow process, all that evolving and adapting along the way.

Our modern psychological needs all reach back to those times.  The trouble arises because our ways of living have changed but our ancient psychological needs have not.  We no longer live directly in the way that we did for millions of years.  We are domesticated now.  And ill from it just like the monkeys in the zoo.

We live indirectly, with very specialized jobs, by which we acquire the representative paper, with which can then be purchased from submissive-authoritarian merchants, the things which are needed to live, namely, heat in it's various forms: clothes, food and shelter.  This is a new development in an evolutionary sense and it is causing all kinds of social problems.

I have been realizing for a little while now, that as much as Straigt cast it's net for me, I also sought out the beast, so to see it and know it and live with it if I had to or understand it's weakness or how to slay it if I had to either.

I wasn't just swept up in it randomly.  My own intentions were largely responsible.  That in no way excuses their heinous crimes against my brethren and I and I, but I and I had a strong intuition about the nature of authority and so I went and looked where few dared.  Sounds noble, I know, LOL ... In a way it was, but that's not to say that I didn't also hurt some people before I went to Straight.  I was no saint but my initial rebellion was rooted in the instinctual drive for direct satisfaction from my environment.  I wanted to live directly somehow.  I wanted to experience Life and explore consciousness and know wisdom.  But everything about my world seemed foreign to that 

There was little understanding in my elders of the time our ancestors lived and how they did it.  There was only a submissive-authoritarian consciousness, largely cut off from nature and exploitive and mean and dependent as a result.

I rebelled against that and ended up standing my ground when push came to shove.

There is really an unfathomable psychological void between the way we are evolved to live and the pressure put on everyone by modern social authorities and the commercial/corporate system our society is dependent on.  A case can be made that it is a form of slavery, and the existence of Straight would be evidence to the point.

Civilization itself is generally repressive to our evolutionary nature and psychologically regressive to us as humans as well.     



Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / The War on Consciousness, mostly
« on: January 11, 2013, 11:12:54 AM »
There is a war on consciousness.  There is a whole history of the federal government's intention to own it's citizens and American taxpayers have funded many a foreign coup and military occupation in order to force their economic values into position around the world.  People are sold out and powerless to help themselves now.  The capitalists have made everyone dependent on their system.  The people are unconscious and cannot make the right decisions because they are cut off from nature and themselves and have no way to understand or even see the reality of their relationship to the universe, or at least the Earth, or even each other.  The mere complication of the system fosters and nurtures exploitation and injustice.  The indirectness of it is what allows the exploitation.  

Now Jello Biafra's alright, but I never yet heard him talk about the War on Consciousness .  I was in some big city lately and was fuelin up at the pump when I noticed a t.v. screen on top of the gas pump runnin the national news at me while I got gas.  Remember in Straight how you weren't allowed any privacy ??  Remember how invasive it all was ??  What an assault on the most inner sacred aspects of your consciousness !!  Thing is the whole society is that way.  I mean thats where Straight came from.  Straight existed as a manifestation of American values.  We were the ones who somehow escaped and we ended up in Straight's re-acculturation center.  

I think maybe a long time ago education was aimed at conscious awareness, but nowadays it's more likely to be about social conditioning and popular homogenization than any kind of conscious awareness or personal or social responsibility, which is not even possible without conscious awareness.  I mean, how can people be responsible for their actions when they aren't even aware of their effect on others or the Earth in general ??  When you live so indirectly, as in a modern capitalist society, you don't see the fullness of the natural relationship that the individual has to the environment, and in addition to being the entry point for criminal exploitation within the system it also inherently disempowers the individual by causing him to rely on some outside authority for his well-being.  Without an awareness of nature the people are slaves to a synthetic world.

I think capitalism's over-rated...   ... I think it's at least a significant part of the main problem, but that's a whole nother thread somewhere... not that I'm a communist, more of a socio-anarchist...I think people should be able to own some private property and be able to run a homestead or workshop, etc and have communitarian values, instead of government... or in place of social authority.  I think that'd be a lot better than what we got, but, I know that there are other considerations and I've over-simplified my position, in deference to time and space... direct living is best.

Anyway, the trouble is that the people are just being manipulated and used by powerful capitalists, who only care about money.  Capitalists are running the government, I mean they own it.  The capitalists own just about everything, and the last frontier of ownership for them is the intentional consciousness of the individual citizen.  What good is any of it without the freedom to be consciously aware, of the truth of Earthly reality, or even the other sentient beings around ??  People are dependent on the economy instead of themselves.  Dependent on televisions and cell phones and oil and external authorities.

Commercial capitalism is the program.  The commercial manipulation comes through the light and the song and triggers your unconscious mind to behave submissively toward authority.  Without some sense of intentional consciousness, and by that I mean some interior space for human intuition to develop freely people are easily exploited by insidious commercial forces who have no respect for humanity.  Intentional consciousness is transcendental awareness.  Awareness of the transcendental nature of Intentional consciousness is freedom and responsibility.  The capitalists dont want you to have any so they are constantly assaulting you with commercials and propaganda.  Everywhere you go there is a television to watch and a camera taking your picture.

Yeah, I've smoked through an apple before and now that you mention it, I may try it again for a direct comparison.  The oblong shape of the sweet potato works well and I really like the flavor.

I carved a locally grown sweet potato into a pipe, cause I was sick of the taste of my dirty glass piece and sick of cleanin it all the time too, and by about the 2nd hit I can taste the flavor of the sweet potato mixed with the grass...It makes the leaf I been burnin taste like sweet potatoes.  It's really good.  I been smokin out of the sweet potato all month.
