Human power is trans-formative and morphing daily as power shifts based on individual deeds and words we hear spoken, read written and represented in what we see.
The struggle for power is infinite within the human sphere. Each day we as individuals seek to empower ourselves while other institutional powers such as corporations, churches and governments continuously flex their muscles and overpower us.
The corporate media has taken shape over the decades as the universal human king maker and those few humans who can manipulate the media using their money and the power it buys can manipulate minds.
OUR thoughts are the target and thoughts can be transformed with an event, with written words and with imagery such as videos both live and "canned". Much of what we hear, read and see is contrived and filtered a thousand times before it reaches each of us as human beings.
So it is that each moment of OUR lives we must rely on the power deep within ourselves to maintain control of our perceptions.
OUR perceptions influence what we deem to be real and true.
There is little doubt in my mind that each of us is losing that battle within ourselves.
I see it each day as opinions shift with every word spoken, written, visualized and repeated by our corporate big brother using mass media as the messenger of lies.
Thus we have succumbed to the unthinkable. We think less and react more to the programming of the few humans who understand the behavioral sciences and the meaning and applied use of data.
War and the massive neglect it causes on life on earth is the manifestation of a society where the will of the many can be usurped by a handful of humans who control our perceptions.
War can't be measured in words alone; nothing can be measured in words.
Only time measures the true impact of wars on lives. Not years or months but minutes and seconds.
Each moment someone lives with the impacts of war they suffer in some way either directly or by association.
The same applies to poverty, crime and the associated causal disadvantages of education.
Wars are not just fought on battlefields and casualties are not just the result of physical combat.
Our minds and hearts and souls suffer as well and the residual damage on all life is hardly ever mentioned, acknowledged or known!
We are focused on ourselves as a species and rarely look unselfishly at the impact we have on other forms of life and on one another.
We often pray, but to whom and what for? when we ourselves are responsible through both our inactions and our actions.
Yes there are causes and charities, but to what avail? The battle for the very existence of OUR species on earth is being lost each day.
But much more importantly the life that surrounds us and sustains us is diminishing. The life that resides in rain forests and on coral reefs is just a small sample of what we have been destroying since we began to multiply and consume.
A few simple ideas have been stamped upon our minds through repetition and transference of guilt and responsibility.
WE each are born predestined to follow a mold that has been built by a global human society that has literally gone off the rails.
It is true that evolution has played a role in what we each perceive in different parts of planet earth.
We humans are extremely primitive when one steps back and views the extremes of how we humans live from one continent to another and within each continent in areas carved out that we call nations.
Often the differences are stark as between Mexico and the United States. And yet their are similarities as well that are even more powerful.
Those humans who seek to separate themselves from other humans are fighting a losing battle. Yet a very few who have attained positions of power using their wealth have imposed their influence on perception and stand solidly in the way of universal progress.
The media is the plutocrats tool of choice and the Internet is the only media monkey wrench left to throw into the engine of big brother.
The Internet invokes the power of ME and when combined with other ME's forms the power of WE.
Slowly as in the case of newsvine classic ... we the people are being sliced and diced and placed neatly into boxes, separated from one another.
The process of Internet disinfection is not unique, and is practiced by all the social players such as google, twitter and Facebook.
It is becoming increasingly difficult for us to join together and achieve a universal understanding 0f truth.
Big brother is now struggling to grasp back the control that they have had over minds, and they are winning that battle. WE are being compartmentalized.
Ultimately WE each have only ourselves to rely upon to think.
Thus the power of ME becomes all that more important.
By sharing ideas as we do on the internet we are invoking the power we each have in a combined manner.
This power created entities such as twitter, amazon, Facebook and google; all of which are corporations.
AS corporations assume more power and influence over OUR Government we have recently seen another player flex it's mighty muscles organized Religion.
In fact their are three major organized powers over the lives of human beings.
Organized religion, organized capitalism and organized media.
Institutions we all trust, fall under the purview and influence of these three powers.
Aside from ourselves the media is the prism through which we view reality.
However what we hear and see and read is often seriously altered.
More significantly what we don't hear and see and read has an infinitely greater influence upon us.
Can we remain unified in the face of the massive media effort to take over the internet and divide we the people?
WE will soon find out.
