The Fuel of Disaster

For a long time, I’ve always considered myself a very optimistic person, giving those selected to the position of the American Presidency the chance to prove themselves as a competent leader.  For the first 100 days of Trump I did just that.  “Nah, he’s not that radical, he’s a real estate mogul wanting to play leader.  He won’t do anything.” Well, how wrong I was proven sure struck down my optimism with

You want clean air, clean water and pristine natural wonders? NOPE!

healthy dose of the reality pill.

 

From the gutting of the EPA and the regulations against pollution to allowing basically any state wishing to make a hefty profit to mine resources off of what was Federally protected lands to the recent push through of the American Healthcare Act yesterday through the House of Representatives.  This is by far a recipe for disaster.  Not only does it further divide our country along political lines, but it also makes look weak.  “Weak?!  You’re kidding me, right?”  No, I’m not.  It’s true along the same reasons why Obama helped destabilize our country into an awkward morass of divisions.  This whole Us vs. US thing that politicians do to the average American is simply a play for power.  If the people are consistently divided, then politicians can do whatever they want.

“Free speech!  Free speech!!  Except for our opposition! Hasta la victoria Che Guevara shirts or something like that! “

So when you have riot on a certain campus ( looking at you Berkley), you feed the antagonism of the political elite (which includes Trump, Pence, Clinton and yes Bernie Sanders).  This is what they want!  They want us to fight as they sit in their cozy homes watching the plebians fight among themselves.  To them, our fighting each other is akin to Americans obsession with reality shows.  However, all of this faux rage is just that, it’s fake because if it were genuine it would last longer and actually provide a platform of change.  Instead, it divides further and makes the rift between all Americans bigger than the rift in the huge ice shelf about to break off Antarctica.  I will state that there are some well-meaning folks in both camps that want to see this country in a better state, but the radicals appropriate the message of peace and unity into an antithetical statement of violence, hatred and fascistic tendencies.  Both the Left and the Right are to blame for this.  They are both increasingly shifting to fascism.  Red fascism (communism) is no different than Right Wing fascism (Alt-Right).  It all leads to violence and hate.

Blog containing my rituals and practices. I follow the Norse gods, but am neither a Wiccan nor a strict reconstructionist. My focus is on the spiritual, mystical, and magickal aspects of Heathenism and forms of practice that make Heathenism valid for the modern times, and present day needs, and as a path towards enlightenment and spiritual growth.
