DRILL THIS INTO YOUR HEAD.
TRY AND STOP CONSUMPTION OF SELF.
BE MORE THAN JUST THAT.
NOT ONLY FOR PEACE OF MIND.
BUT BECAUSE EVERYONE MUST GET REALLY IRRITATED
BY THE LACK OF VARIETY IN TOPIC OF CONVERSATION.

LEARN TO LOVE SELF AND ONE'S COMPANY.
STOP LETTING THOUGHTS STRAY.
STOP LETTING THOUGHTS PERSUADE YOU THAT YOU NEED MORE.
STOP LETTING THOUGHTS TAKE CONTROL.
OR AT LEAST CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS.
WHEN YOU GET TO A POINT WHERE YOU CAN FEEL SAFE
WHEN YOU GET TO A POINT WHERE YOU CAN FEEL SECURE
IN YOURSELF
OUTSIDE SECURITY WILL GROW.
LOVE WILL FIND YOU.
LOVE WILL NOT COME TO YOU IF YOU DO NOT LOVE YOURSELF.
RESPECT IS GIVEN TO THOSE WITH RESPECT FOR SELF.

PUT THINGS INTO PERSPECTIVE.
DO NOT THINK IN TERMS OF ALL OR NOTHING.
LET THINGS KEEP.
TRAGEDY IS NOT AT HAND.
DWELLING SOUNDS LIKE AN AWFUL WORD
AND TO DWELL IS AN AWFUL THING TO DO.
ACCEPT FACTS.
DO NOT FANTASIZE.
THIS MAKES REALITY SEEM DULL AND DISAPPOINTING.
REALITY ONLY BECOMES THIS IF YOU LET IT.

I hate the pernicious effects of politicized dogmas such as 'communism' which steal all the high ideals such as truth, equality and justice. They presume to embody humanity's highest and most universal values all unto themselves. Then they infiltrate under the hood, forms of jealously, anger, injustice and envy. They inculcate divisiveness and hatred. Although they profess to represent the best and fairest of humanity and to be striving towards a better society, they propagate a mean-spirited view of humanity and perpetuate an intellectualized form of paranoia. They are so focused on what 'we' haven't got that they can't even see what we have, what we've gained and what we might still achieve in the world. It's a reactionary form of thinking. It's reactionary thinking which isn't thinking at all. It's assuming that it's all been done for you and the truth is, that's it's not. They are fooled into believing that their 'system' explains the world as it is. But the truth is, that is doesn't. It distorts at the most fundamental levels. the truth is, that the majority, and especially the most mediocre, shall always prefer to take some pre-packaged seal-wrapped doctrine down from the shelf. Because this demands less real effort than seeing one's own individual way clear to the fundamentals. Indeed it will always feel safer to believe yourself to be part of some collective army of right-thinking individuals. Moreover in the case of Marxist's for example, 'false-consciousness' means anybody who doesn't think the same way as they. How Orwellian is that? Thereby this particular form of fundamental moral cowardice is framed as being its very opposite. Therefore I have came to see these kinds of people as cowards. Because they take the safe way, and sell out. And the flip side of a coward, such as this, is a bully! Is it any wonder that such '"system's" when given the chance to put theory into practise tend to form oppressive and totalitarian governments, becoming the very opposite of what they profess to promise? Mao and Stalin are not aberrations they are Communism's natural heirs. A system which is a monster of reality in its essence can only produce monsters in its use. It will always tend to produce Nazis by another name. It’s a system that only works on the assumption that there is another system which it opposes. Its dogmas are all predicated on the conspiratorial tenant that there is a global system in place which they oppose. The only dominant system that there is, is democracy. Yet they prefer the term 'capitalism'. Which is not a system, much less a political one, it’s a concept. It does not embody and determine the way life is on this planet. But again similar to the Nazis they prefer simple solutions. A 'Final Solution' hid in spurious crowds of sophistication. They don't see that they only owe their existence as a consequence of the democratic process. Which is the very process to which they are truly in reality opposed. Which is why the term(s) political or politics itself becomes vague and confused. The very operation of democracy becomes 'them' as contrasted with 'us'. Everything is bad because it's not us. Yet when it is ‘us’ and that turns bad, then that wasn't ‘us’ either. If they are right and they do have the recipe to make this a better world, then why hasn't it been universally adopted? Fool, for asking. Because of 'them' of course! Which just demonstrates a truth that is true in most walks of life, that the most arrogant are often also the most ignorant as well.
Yes politics is boring. I always felt that. However it took me some while to figure out how some forms of it could be quite insiduous as well. To discover that 'good people' could actually be the brainwashed brainwashing you.
