I was inspired today by a shared post on Facebook, recommending the video you will find below. Inspired enough to reshare it and also to make this declaration. I hope that any and all readers may find this useful.
A Declaration of Personal Independence and Integrity
I am human.
I am an individual.
For as long as I can, and for as long as it is within my power and capability to do so…
– I will be myself.
– I will make my own decisions.
– I will decide what is right and what is wrong.
– I will decide what is truth and what is false.
– I will not conform to some pattern that the society I live in would set for me.
– I will not stand silent while evil is carried out by others in my name.
– I will speak up for justice where injustice is done.
– I will call out those who are perpetrating harm, lies, mischief and anything that is not good in the world. No matter who they are.
– I will maintain my integrity by speaking the truth as I see it.
– I will maintain my personal independence.
– I will be a person, not a sheeple.
– I will be alert.
– I will be strong.
– I will be free.
…and that is what this video is all about. Try it. You may begin to see the world – your world – your self, a little differently.
Sarah Abed, a Syrian American, with relations living in Saydnaya, Syria, reveals the fake-newsiness (colloquialism for ‘outright lies’) of Amnesty International reports of mass hangings by the Syrian government.
How low is the West willing to sink in its already scraping of the bottom of the barrel in credibility and trust?
Of course it is mainly the US and NATO that are behind such lies, but isn’t it incumbent on their allies and member nations to periodically review their association with such degenerates?
Come on Western nations, grow a backbone.
I recently published a post that was basically just a share of a YouTube video from Paul Joseph Watson on the Trump immigrant ban. I almost took that post down once or twice, not for the occasional profanity (if you can’t get past a few swear words then you need to get out more), but a) because I didn’t agree with some of what was said (or at least how it came across to me – my understanding of it) and b) because I just didn’t understand what he was saying (which may just be due to my removing myself from the presence and influence of modern cultural norms as much as possible).
I didn’t remove the post, obviously, since it served (more or less) to make a point. Or points. Even if I didn’t agree with or understand some of the points made. It generally gave the impression that I wanted to pass on.
I could say much the same thing about this share, Which is actually of much greater importance than almost anything related to Trump:
Western culture is sinking into depravity and degradation and has been for the last few decades but more noticeably during this century. It is a one-way trip, and the further it goes and the faster it travels, the harder it will be to jump off and personally regain some sense of reality and purpose. I can’t say what the end will be like but it won’t be pretty or pleasant.
I personally jumped ship several years ago, which is probably why I have little understanding of the finer points of modern popular culture. It is though, very clear from the outside, just what is happening to society headed for self-absorbed destruction.
