Question: What is evil if not that which is contrary to life and love?
Without getting too mystical about it, life is a state and expression of love. Love is the most natural thing in the world to us. Children love naturally and profoundly. Friends love one another. We love our families, our parents, our children and even people we don't know very well. We may not know them at all. When we become aware of the suffering of others, even total strangers, it's a natural response to want to help. That is love.
The intangible necessities of life come from love. Love of parents, children, family and friends is a mainstream source of our happiness and okayness in the world. We love our pets and they love us back, and it's no secret how good it is for people to have and love pets, it's actually a means to stay healthy. We love music, dance, art and work. We love animals, we love nature, we love looking up at the stars at night. We love the weather and the seasons, the oceans and the skies, the plants, flowers and trees, the birds and the bees and the butterflies. The love, respect, admiration, awe and appreciation we feel for all of these things gives us tremendous and profound feelings of joy and connection to life and the world. It's within us to love everything. We're just natural born love machines.
We ourselves are products of love, at least that's the ideal situation. Whether or not that is the case no child can get very far in life if they are not loved. They will fail to thrive without love, and without enough love people don't turn out okay. They end up with all kinds of complex and complicated mental and emotional malfunctions and deviations that can cause them, as well as others, all kinds of pain and suffering. That's just reality. We need love to be whole and to function properly. That's a fact that no amount of rabid capitalism can bury, although it never stops trying.
Love is not just some frilly nonsensical notion, it's an absolute necessity and the fact is that everything we do that's done in love is a good thing. You can't really mess up when unselfish love motivates your actions and you certainly can't go wrong when decisions are made in a caring or loving way. It's pretty simple when you stop to notice it. Living and acting in and from a loving place is healthy and logical as well as necessary. We can't and don't do well otherwise. Living and acting in and from love leads to strong and successful human development and in turn to humane and mutually prosperous, healthy human activity on this earth. We're at our happiest when we're in a state of love, loving our lives and everything and everyone in them.
It is the absence of that state of love that brings us the worst of mankind's pains, sorrows and injustice.
It's easy to see how and where we've gone wrong in this world, and why. When you stop and analyze all of the areas of present day life that are in crisis or some stage of evolving crisis, where ever such is man made, it has come about as a direct result of the actions of people who act out of motivations other than love. Indeed, their motivations are the antithesis, the opposite, the exclusion of love.
The worst of the worst situations usually boil down to one of the most destructive motivations there is, the motivation to accumulate great wealth. Those motivated to achieve great wealth for themselves do so with the full knowledge that their wealth derives from causing harm, destruction and death to others. Yet their desire for enormous and ever increasing wealth precludes and negates all other considerations. What they do amounts to a direct assault on life itself.
Those who elevate the illusion called wealth above all else do not act out of love. We know they embody hypocrisy and double standards. They believe they possess the natural entitlement to be obscenely wealthy and to act as criminally as they please, although there is no such entitlement. These are people incapable of feeling love or respect for humanity. They are not connected to the natural, normal state of being human; and nothing legitimate or good can come from that.
What most people don't realize is that great wealth in and of itself is not the true and final goal. To outside observers who have little or no wealth it would seem to be enough. Wealth certainly has its benefits. However, the true and ultimate goal is control. Control over others. Complete and total control.
There is no reasonable motivation to want complete and total control over other people. Control is unnatural. It is also unnecessary. People resent and reject attempts to control them. Yet it is so strongly desired by these very wealthy few, that nothing else matters more to them than attaining control. In order to do so they must be willing to severely violate others, and to kill them in great numbers. While there is no such thing as people willing to be controlled for purposes determined by others, the lack of willingness has never prevented these people from forcing their will on as many others as possible, and at any price to those others.
In a world that has been systematically commodified, everything now has a price. Life itself is being manufactured in unnatural, unjustifiable, disgusting ways that reveal a total disdain and disrespect for nature, for life and for meaning. Life is bought and sold in ways never before imagined, regardless of the widespread strong disagreement with the practice. It is those who possess great wealth who are able to ignore and dismiss the will of the planet and do with it what they will.
These same few have the will to enslave the world, and they have rapidly and very successfully achieved near completion of that goal. It was a simple matter of removing all wealth from the people and taking it for themselves. People all over the world today are being forced to work in ever worsening conditions, even slave conditions, for ever less remuneration and often for no remuneration at all, with ever decreasing rights, human and otherwise.
Well devised efforts are underway across many nations to remove rights of free speech, free press, personal property ownership, and even one's own right to determine their own health care and the health care, education and rearing of their own children. With every passing year the vast majority of mankind is being more and more separated from access to what is required to sustain their lives and health. The tool is money. People everywhere have less and less of it, while this very small few have more than we can even comprehend. It is rapidly approaching the point where these few immensely wealthy people will have all of the wealth, and own all of the property, and they will at that time literally own, and totally control this entire world.
These wealthy people populate certain groups which have become politically insulated from criticism and questioning, leaving them and only them free to perpetrate as much violence and crime against others as they desire. And they desire a great deal of violence and crime to be done to others.
Where will this end?
Is it possible that there is a certain class of human being that is against life and is in fact dedicated to ending life? To eradicating and destroying life, nature, and love?
Anyone who's been paying attention to the world for a fair amount of time has witnessed people acting in precisely this way. It is at the very least illogical, destructive behavior. If you're not interested in being quite so reserved in judgment it would be easy to say that everything they do, regardless of how well they disguise their true intent with lies, games, masks, distractions and detours, has an end result of death, destruction, impoverishment, injustice and pain, everything that comes about in the absence of basic human love and consideration for the well being of others. They loudly proclaim their morality and superiority but what they do will kill people, animals and ecosystems and will destroy whatever they touch. They seem to be anti-humans which exist in direct contradiction to truth, to common sense, to justice, to love, and to all that comprises our most deeply held values and notions of basic human decency.
What I've been considering is the idea that such anti-life people really and truly exist. These are the people I would call evil. They do what they do without any regard whatsoever for others. Their value system, if you could call it that, is unrelated to my own. They do not respect others, they do not value the lives of anyone else but themselves and their own chosen others. They lie, cheat, steal, trick, extort and murder, and knowingly seek to undermine and destroy the health, happiness and prosperity of others in order to "enrich" themselves. They think nothing at all of depriving the whole world of personal choice, freedom, rights, health, property, privacy, dignity, sanity, safety or free will.
Everything about these people is destructive and offensive to anyone outside of their group, and they are not liked, trusted or appreciated, and they know it, they just don't care. What they do is resented and unwanted by the vast majority of the world's population. In fact by and large, many people wholly reject these anti-humans and find it very hard to understand not only why they are the way they are, but that they even can be the way they are. They are insulting, dangerous, spiritually deficient people, given to delusions of grandeur and special entitlement to harm others for personal gain. They separate themselves from the rest of the world and demand all manner of special privileges, special rules, and special treatment. They are obsessed with blood lines, status and titles, and most definitely with wealth, power and control over others.
When you stop to notice it, the penchant for separating people into groups of some who claim to be better and others who are proclaimed to be lessors has brought profound misery and ugliness into the world. There is no need or logical reason for all the separation on earth today. Perhaps they encourage this separation for their own safety knowing that if they set us against each other, we will be too distracted to confront them and end their destructive control over our lives. Without separations of race, creed, education levels, economic class, even age and gender, there are many degrees of false separation between us, the people of the world would be easily united and the anti-life hoarders would be out of business.
How and why these people got this way is not something I can claim to know, I have no idea how they got this way. I also have no idea why they would choose to remain being anti-human when it's clear that's exactly what they are. You'd think they'd feel ashamed of themselves and guilty for what they've done to this world but the astonishing reality is that they don't feel ashamed. They don't feel at all guilty. What they feel is that they are heroic, sublime, enlightened, special beings who possess the rare innate qualities of mind and being that entitle them to do anything they want with this world for their own pleasure. Like I said, they're delusional and this is one of the main delusions. Specialness.
Above all else, the whole of what these other type of people are about, amounts to zero. They are self-destructive when you follow their game out to its logical conclusion. They literally don't make sense. It's obvious that they have the goal of annihilating the entire population of the world, everyone except themselves. I suppose their sick fantasy is to have a private world, all for themselves. They literally feel nothing at the thought of murdering eight billion people.
To this end they've toxified the planet. They cannot propagate selective destruction though; whatever they destroy or kill in fact affects them too. The water is toxic, as is the air. The food is poisonous, filled with chemicals that are dangerous to human health. Healthy natural food is becoming impossible to locate and if it is located it is often too expensive to afford. They've also destroyed all the farmers to ensure the end of local food production. In having total control of our food, they can cut it off anytime they like.
To make certain that the population at large dies out, they're pushing genetically manipulated food on the public, fully aware of the resulting harm. They've hidden and deny the research they've done that shows animals fed this genetic horror for food rapidly sicken and die, and this of course will be what happens to many people in the world. Vaccines are creating a whole generation of functionally retarded children who will not be likely to reproduce; this will drastically and quickly reduce the population of this country alone. They've just forced the first state in this country to vaccinate every tiny school child with no legal rights for the parents to object on any grounds. They're becoming a bit anxious to ensure the failure of every proceeding generation it seems. They want this over now. We are becoming ever less able to reproduce because of toxic chemical saturation anyway, sperm counts have dropped so profoundly that more and more couples are infertile. All human health is under threat today, and every living being on this planet now has uranium radiation inside their body, along with the most toxic and deadly chemicals in the world, some of which never disintegrate.
But they also polluted the oceans to the point of 90% loss of sea life. They don't seem to comprehend that if the oceans die, or the bees, they will die too.
The more successful they are in killing the world, the more successful they'll be in killing themselves. They are on a suicide mission. They either don't know it or they don't care, being totally committed to destroying the world and all life in it including themselves.
Could it be that these people, so devoid of love, literally hate themselves so much that they want to die, only they want to take everyone and every living thing with them when they go?
Isn't it interesting that these loveless people, so destructive and selfish and toxic, these purveyors of mass death, illness, unhappiness, inequality, poverty, all of the things that result from the absence of simple healthy, normal human love, are in total control of this world?
Isn't it strange that even though they are working so hard to cause so much damage and death, and that by and large the population of the world knows it, they are not stopped?
Is this a planet of abject apathy? Does humanity no longer care if our species exists or perishes? Perhaps the violation of this world's irreplaceable perfect purity, the violation of our truth has been so complete and so extensive that we understand, subconsciously perhaps, that we are already doomed. Or are we two sides of the same suicidal coin? The active murderers and the passive acceptors of mass death and total destruction?
It kind of looks that way to me.
I wish I understood what it all means. I wish I understood why they are defended and protected as they continue to murder the world, and why hundreds of millions stand by and allow it to continue, every single day, day after day, year after year, until the inevitable end is reached. No one dares even speak of it to the powers that be, it must all be denied. They who wish to destroy life must not be interrupted or interfered with. To do so would bring on nothing but vile, seething criticism, and maybe even murder. They are definitely protected. No matter how vile they become, no matter how many millions have died, they keep on killing in more and ever more ways.
When it's so simple, so easy, so infinitely more pleasant to live on this earth in a caring and loving way; when doing so would make the world such a nice place to live, then why would anyone choose to do exactly the opposite? It takes tremendous effort to go against nature and to cause so much pointless destruction. But the choice has been made.
I just wish I understood why.
Sorry for the bummer post, but you know, this is real. Will we ever start talking about it? Are we so enslaved, so cowed, so neutered, so mind controlled that we can't bear the discomfort of the confrontation it would take to call these anti-humans out and force them to stop? Or would we rather just die? I don't know, what do you think? It's scary to me, but it seems we'd rather just die. I just don't understand that.
Okay, it's not fair to leave this on such a heavy note. So here's a joke.
Why did the chicken cross the road?
To get away from the genetically modified chicken feed, obviously.
Too bad he got hit by a truck on the way.
No worries. I hear they're growing abnormally large sized "chicken" breasts in tanks these days, without the rest of the chicken that is. And sheets of "meat". Coming soon to a gross-ery store near you! Betcha can't wait.
