On Acceptance and Adjustment

“All truth passes through three stages: First it is ridiculed, Second it is violently opposed, Third it is accepted as being self-evident.”

Arthur SCHOPENHAUER, German philosopher, (1788-1860)

Much of Arthur Schopenhauer's writing is focus...

The following was originally posted as a reply into this blog entry:

Upon exposure to the possibility that a particular organization may be specifically designed to conduct a war against a group of people that includes you personally, there are a few alternatives. First is naïve ridicule: “that could not be possible, so it must not be true.” Second is violent opposition: “that should not be true, so we must organize and appeal to the aggressors, convincing them to be especially good to us in particular… by fiercely criticizing them.”

Are you interested in a third alternative? I thought you might be!

Third is acceptance with adjustment, like this: OK, I see that there is such a thing as deception of the masses and I see that, at least in some cases, the masses are effectively deceived. I have been among the deceived (or naïve) masses. I also see that the Federal Reserve System may not always act in my personal best interests, and in fact that the IRS and SSA and CIA and FDA and SEC and SPP and USDC (the C is for Court, by the way) may not always act in my personal best interests, if ever.

However, I do not need to heroically fight against them (or for them). I can simply adjust my operations away from their focus, their jurisdiction, and/or their programs of default behavior for the masses.

I can withdraw my investment in abdicating my future to their default programming. I can accept responsibility for my future. In particular, I can adjust to the deflationary bankrupting of the middle class. I can either promote my personal interests by benefiting from that deflating process, or at least avert my own personal bankrupting.

I can accept that I may have been investing in my own bankruptcy, if only naively. I acknowledge that I may have been surprised by certain developments and ironies in the financial system, the legal system, and the systems of influencing behavior (AKA governing), including mass media, public education, and churches.

It may have been naïve of me not only to deny the possibility of those developments, but to invest my attention into criticizing them. However, I recognize that the default behaviors of denying and criticizing were programmed into me.

I was not born with ideas of what should not be. I was rigorously trained in those ideas. Those ideas of what should not be trained me to dismissively reject all that I was taught “should not be,” then to protest and oppose “what should not be,” allowing for certain operations to easily deny as well as monopolize certain types of conduct.

I recognize now that those forms of conduct are monopolized by those operations through the cultural promotion of certain ideas of what “should not be.” I recognize that different cultures promote different variations of “what should not be.”

Rather than resist or criticize the cultural promotion of certain ideas of what should not be, I reserve the right to participate in any particular culture or not, and, only if I choose and how I choose, to question particular ideas of what should not be or the entire paradigm of “should not be.”

I also reserve the right to benefit from any systemic redistribution of wealth… or not. I reserve the right to participate in or influence any investment market or governing institution in any way that I may.

I recognize my world just as it is. I recognize- just as they are- governments and churches and investment markets and other people. I recognize myself just as I am.

I also recognize that I only know what I know, and that I am continuously learning. As I learn, I recognize that some of what I now know to be true may later be recognized as possibly never true at all. I call this humility… and the gateway of wisdom, prudence, and responsibility for my own paradigm of… language.

    Knowledge is power and one is responsible for educating one’s self. If I suddenly slap my hand inches from your face you will flinch. This is a reflexive reactionary response to a threat. People who are threatened respond. Just as the body produces antibodies to a foreign invasion in the form of an infection or a virus. That is just what is happening now, and you are right, it will take some time for people to wake up and see that the cancer is themselves-and what they are trying to impose will get eradicated upon this ‘enlightenment’.

    Socialism has NEVER worked. It has been proven in the archives of history. It has always been the precursor to communism, and we have all seen the dismal reality and eventual destruction of that. It is all just waves, but the fact that we are repeating history exemplifies the very essence of insanity: “Doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results”

    Luckily I have seen my own gross conditioning and that of all free and sovereign entities from a young age as a bunch of crap that i refused to subscribe to whether emanating from parents, teachers, religious bullies, asshole partners or boring people at parties.

    The result of my recognizing the truth via gross injustices perpetrated upon my person in the form of being forced to do what these other entities wanted (usually due to their being bigger than me and in a position to use physical violence or the threat thereof) has been a lifetime of rebellion on the surface, yet in reality it has been a stripping away of said conditioned programs until i am left with only that which was true and valuable in the first place, my inherent wisdom and grace.

    My grossly conditioned friends, peers and family members pity me because i have adopted a way of life which is characterized by utter simplicity on the outer plane (i.e. i own and earn only that which i need for relative comfort and general survival) and sheer unlimitedness on the inner plane which is characterized by ever expanding conscious awareness and bliss.

    In other words i have nothing to lose on the material plane if it were to disappear up it’s own quantum asshole tomorrow and everything has already been gained on the spiritual, ever expanding me to new levels of humility as i gaze upon vast vistas of eternity’s wonders……

    My only challenge is not to pity those who have fallen into the trap of thinking this life to be anything other than a very good video game and to be careful not to tell them what thet really don’t want to know anyway, even if it would set them free after the initial total collapse of their whole identity ( a painful but unavoidable part of the waking up process.)

    Having played the very useful role of scapegoat for many of these sleepers to hurl their unresolved projections onto and been pushed unceremoniously down the metaphorical cliff, i am now comfortably retired to the countryside, where my closest friends and confidants are chickens, dogs, alfalfa sprouts and the likes of J>R> Fibbonacci and co…….xxxxx

    My feedback is…..what’s your point? This just occurs as rambling to me. What are trying to accomplish by sending these writings to people?
