Does it seem one side of the political spectrum or the other try to label anyone who disagrees with their philosophy crazy, insane or downright dangerous? Pushing a narrative that paints others as unworthy of free speech by labeling it hate because they don’t agree? Bastardizing simple words and twisting their meanings to suit a generalized goal of making 1/2 of this country surrender to a moral code they may not agree with at all? Indeed there is real hate speech out there, people that hold onto idiotic and hurtful ideals that have no place in modern society. But is it only on one side? I think not.

How does one sit back and watch as what we believe in is thrust in our faces as something to be reviled, a moment in history to be crushed under the heals of the side now in control? Are we expected to sit idly by and accept any crazy notion from the minds of questionable people that don’t seem to really express their true intentions? Should we accept everything at face value, never question what we may see as underhanded so as not to be labeled racist or some pick your phobia? Both sides of this dangerous equation are at fault for the disarray and borderline civil war brewing in this country and yes, around the world. Not necessarily a war of guns and death but a war of ideals that will still lead to a fractured world even worse than now.

The folded faces portrayed by the media lying on your doorstep each day are the real lunatics in our societies. I would like to think they know not what they are doing with their flagrant misrepresentation of what the average person feels, but one can’t help but wonder if it’s all on purpose. Do they want this level of anger and disrespect, this growing resentment that could lead to more violence above and beyond what we have seen already? I for one will have nothing to do with such behavior, but I can see it coming. If one day the dam bursts, and chaos ensues, what will you stand for? Will you bend to the wind or will you stay true to the moral beliefs you hold dear? For each this question must be answered.

I don’t often speak of my political beliefs because their seems to be no middle ground anymore. You can’t just disagree, you must vehemently disagree. You can’t discuss middle ground or compromise, you must admit you are wrong and repent. So polarized is our society, so war like are the political discussions as of late that I feel we are at a crossroads of sorts. All it would take is a spark of such magnitude to push the sensibilities of enough people beyond their ability to ignore and we could be in trouble as a singular people. We are but one race in this world and that is human. We are not black or white, Asian or African. European nor Hindu, Catholic or Jewish. We are people trying to live our lives, the one thing that is truly our own, and as long as we respect others we should be able to do as we will within bounds of reason.

But their in lies the root of the problem…there is no more reason only politics. We have no one to blame but ourselves for voting these lunatics into power, and we are the only ones who can change the path were on. You can lock the door to what is going on around you, bury you head in the sand of this philosophy or that, but we all live on the same small globe and what happens here will eventually happen everywhere. If that happens I will see you on the dark side of the moon as that will be the only safe space left.

The lunatic is on the grass
The lunatic is on the grass
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path

The lunatic is in the hall
The lunatics are in my hall
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon

The lunatic is in my head
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me ’til I’m sane

You lock the door and throw away the key
There’s someone in my head but it’s not me.

And if the cloud bursts thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you’re in starts playing different tunes
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon

I can’t think of anything to say except…
I think it’s marvelous! Ha, ha, ha!

  1. We are living in crazy times and psychological warfare. And we need to turn off and unplug from the lying and corrupt mainstream media which does nothing but perpetrate fear and division. Inwards is where we find our peace and where our connection to our true self and humanity lies. Stay sane John. 🙏

    1. Like you I find solace in the open spaces and I have put in motion some plans to retreat to the wilds very soon. (Much coming up in this forum!) I refuse to let others dictate how I should think and feel and stand true to my moral code instilled in me by my wonderful parents that I miss deeply. They were not perfect and neither am I, but I believe in freewill and the ideals of holding ones destiny in your own hands.

  2. Blame public (mis)education for not teaching children HOW to think, only WHAT to think. That’s how you end up with media jerks equating “overturn the election” with “looking for fraud”. If you want to read what direction this country is heading, grab all of Kurt Schlichter’s novels-turned-non-fiction. There are 5 of them now. Also…over priced academia is fueling this huge. I have it from the inside of 2 unrelated colleges what a joke they and the population are. The government can’t stand free thinkers in the population so they import a population to be dependent puppets! That should be a crime!
