"The masses will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one."
In writing this column for all these years, the thought that I would start off with a quote from Adolf Hitler surprises me but I can appreciate wisdom no matter the source, and in this case, especially the source in relation to the quote.
I had not heard this quote before but many in group had heard it long ago. It came across my desk the same week we were reeling from the current administration's antics that week. It seemed particularly appropriate in light of all the alternative facts being offered. And something to remember in the upcoming days of congressional meetings, debates, reveals and exposes.
There are those among us who have the ability to charm, seduce, rally and move people. They are able to tap into what people feel concerned about and manipulate. They can be quite successful at it without us aware that they are putting their own agenda first, always. They can grab ahold of you into their world, knocking you off balance, taking you by surprise and seduce you into accepting their reality as yours because the words enchant us. Their words can mean exactly what they say and people put their own meaning to it and think he means what they think he means. Or something can get lost in the translation.
Many questioned what kind of leader it takes to run a country such as ours, and if it was different than running a self created business and company that sets its own rules and answers to no one but its owner. We expect both need stable personality traits and considerations and now we know how important that is. A good question might be how is our leader reflecting our own out of control 8 year old child inside each of us?
ANGER IN THE UNBALANCED MALE
Right now the words and actions serve as a wakeup call to us about our own complacency and what we take for granted. We are also noticing how surface and reactive the anger is buried deep in our DNA about how we have been treated and devalued from others and our long held illusions of being victims. Male to Male, Male to Female, anger at being thought of as less than.
Last week on our radio show "Conscious Conversations with Joan and Janet" my guest was Danielle Egnew. She is a psychic, musician, and all around tuned in woman. She identified what she has been noticing and commenting on for over the last year. She calls it The Unbalanced Male and his collapse in societies and mankind as Consciousness evolves. It is playing out everywhere around this globe.
Our conversation followed something I had been watching the prior week. American Race with Charles Barkley as host has been a series of television shows about race in the United States. He was exploring principles of what being American means and in one episode, with a leader of the Alt Right movement. This man is what anyone with a memory would call a Neo Nazi though he does not call himself that.
He was only concerned with the rights of white European based men who have been are at the top of the pecking order in the formation of this country. And what he perceives as the attacks and losses they are currently facing.
He doesn't recognize himself as discriminating of others as that would mean they have the same value as he and his group. His sentiments and statements seem to mean that White European men were always in charge and in control of all they could see upon arrival to these shores. Others were only brought in to serve so they are below notice as human beings of worth. The natives would offer no value, just something to be conquered. They do not have the same right and privileges as himself.
What was even more stunning was his viewpoint of what being American stands for these days. How he and others can look at the American Constitution and Bill of Rights as a manifesto of control and supremacy over others.
1. the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex.
"victims of racial discrimination"
synonyms: prejudice, bias, bigotry, intolerance, narrow mindedness, unfairness, inequity, favoritism, one-sidedness, partisanship;
2. recognition and understanding of the difference between one thing and another.
"discrimination between right and wrong"
It feels like religion needs to be added here.
The unbalanced male is not only white or European in origin. He is in every race of people, on every continent of Earth. We see him everywhere, in every culture, in every time. We see him also in females. We each embody male/female within. The male in us is in different stages of vitality. Some will be in anger and rage. And then there is the unbalanced female who is out of sorts balancing all that unbalanced male she holds for.
All we have to do is get out of Self and allow for Consciousness to unfold. All this becomes clear when free of the distractions that Self will offer as proof.
And I will leave you with a different quote, from a man who saw clearly at the same time of history:
"The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. " Winston Churchill
