Kaoru Yamamoto, from Reflections from the desert:
Change is a slow process, at least until all the spadework has been done. While attention is typically arrested by the swift, sometimes spectacular, final phase of the process, little note is taken of the long, hard preparatory work.
‘Time moved on. Changes came into being slowly-almost imperceptibly. Like the shift of the seasons. Barely noticeable, the changing, till the change was there.’ -Dorothy W. Baruch, One Little Boy
What one needs, in fact, is not so much an applause at the completion of change as recognition of, and support for, the hidden efforts when she or he feels at a standstill and a near failure. What a person is in need of is less praise or reward for success than encouragement when few signs of progress are visible. Perception of the ‘almost imperceptible’ and ‘barely noticeable,’ as well as reaffirmation of the downcast spirit, is therefore a skill and a talent to be cherished by anyone who desires to be of service to human beings, including oneself.
Fellow professional academic Jim Tracy was fired for examining factual claims, evidence, and asking the most important questions to reveal the differences between claims and evidence regarding Sandy Hook.
Of course, one day we wish is sooner rather than later, Jim will be upheld as an academic hero for intellectual integrity and moral courage.
Those of us with some insight into the Orwellian-inverted world we live upon are ready to win our Emperor’s New Clothes service of pointing to obvious crimes of our .01% “wanna-be” masters:
- Unlawful and lie-began wars.
- So-called “money” that is actually debt to create accelerating and unpayable total debt.
- Destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution, and in Orwellian inversion of limited government.
- Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy that has poverty-murdered over 400 million human beings just since 1995; more than killed from all wars in Earth’s recorded history.
The massive crimes end whenever we say we’re ready, is our message.
Res ipsa loquitur: the facts tell the story. All one needs to do is look, we factually assert.
Paradoxically, those of us relatively awake become at peace because:
- Our service is as simple as the child pointing to verifiable facts for anyone caring to look, as in the Emperor’s New Clothes.
- Seemingly no matter what we do, there are too few of us to significantly improve our condition, and too many of us for We the People to not encounter. It seems our role at this stage of the contest is providing choice. I speak as someone who helped create (among many hundreds) the largest meeting for heads of state in world history: the 1990 World Summit for Children to end poverty.
- As humans severely limited in our understanding of the most important facts, we are just guests on this beautiful but dominated planet, NOT management, and apparently without authority beyond our own self-expression and experience to share for others’ consideration.
That said, we move forward in literal good-faith effort in our ongoing choice to stand and live for virtue. The alternative of surrender to .01% psychopaths in any way with our self-expression is easy and natural to reject because we experience that path for what it is: service to a separated and limited self without love, without harmony, without diversity, without connection to God, and fundamentally in denial of reality.
Fight the good fight of Faith. Stand for the eternal life we are all called to live. 1 Timothy 6:12
Our awakened choice is artistically expressed in 9 minutes from Tragedy & Hope:
With your best artistic self-expression, enjoy the ride. Sustainable Man’s 2-minute video points to important truths: we have no idea what Life really means, where it’s headed, and what will happen from our actions:
Note: I make all factual assertions as a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, Economics, and History, with all economics factual claims receiving zero refutation since I began writing in 2008 among Advanced Placement Macroeconomics teachers on our discussion board, public audiences of these articles, and international conferences. I invite readers to empower their civic voices with the strongest comprehensive facts most important to building a brighter future. I challenge professionals, academics, and citizens to add their voices for the benefit of all Earth’s inhabitants.
