A Debunk – “A Liberation of Humanity turns Slavery into a Necessity” – Philosophy – 9/7/2019

September 7, 2019

There is nothing more enjoyable for a human than for them to see where the light is taking them, should that light not lead them to a place where the light has faded. And in today’s world, where “liberation” has become the most prominent of words, there is something very unruly and undisciplined in the word, itself.

We have called upon “freedom” like it were a necessity. Though, have such people ever considered what “freedom” looks like, when it stares at us like the eyes of a child, or of the animals that in today’s time, we preserve for their lives? We adore children, turn them towards the opinions of politics; and, for animals, should we see them within the realm of cruelty, we’ll be most intolerant of it, more-so than for a human.

We see “freedom”, not in the protection of a child, but in the child’s ignorance. We see “freedom”, not in an animal’s protection, but in the animal’s undeveloped mind. As well, ignorance for that animal, and we once more see ourselves in a space of question.

“Freedom” would make the child ever-more curious. “Freedom” would make the animal willing to develop and evolve, out of Nature’s touch. Though, both would require a master to teach them.

Question is where the “power of reason” originates. Liberation is not a place born out of answers to any problem. It creates the numerous intricacies born within a realm of lies and deception. “Question” is a place where an answer to a large and ancient question cannot be found, so one is content with merely the question. In today’s time, it is common for an answer or a statement to be responded to with a question. It is also common, in today’s time, for complexity to be made from simplicity.

In the past, when religion was our guide, we were infatuated with an answer. In today’s time, we are infatuated with a question. Today’s question, being, “What can I make of myself?” The previous answer, of former times, being, “This is who I am, and there’s nothing I may do for it.” Acceptance, therefore, was more in the hands of former times. These were times of what we know, today, to be “enslavement”. It is differed from today’s time, that is a time for “possibility”.

Would it then be so simple to comprehend that the Universe had created an answer of its own self, out of a question? That, to reject the nature of chromosomes for each gender, that which we do in today’s time, is to reject the Universe, itself? That, because we do this, we make a question out of an answer? That, the Universe had only wanted to create pure acceptance out of a question, when forming an answer? That, because nothing is ever solved today, that this is the reason for our continual confusion?

Slavery is the necessity for humanity, when in the realm of guidance, not cruelty. For a leader must lead through example, and never force.


Words of Wisdom – “Equal only among Vulnerability” – 7/29/2019

July 29, 2019

“Among work, no equality. Among work, only competition and the endless discontent that is in life. It is not to say that work should be extinguished, for then life would be extinguished. Take away work, and one can only fall or wish to rise; and that means, wishing to rise, makes the pauper the one with the broken wings. Life is beautiful, as it is said, and this is true. Although, as life, and like truth, both can be shaped, through deceit or the truth that is the same as deceit, into anything.

Among love, and among death, there is vulnerability. There is the only equality a human has ever known. Upon the lowest end, one can see where one has leveled themselves; closest to the grave, that is, and one is indeed at the same height as another, close to death. When one is in love, this is a vulnerability also at the same height. An infinite height.

The infinite height of love is where truth has been lifted.

We yearn to rise, as paupers, or die, as paupers.

We yearn for more and more, as discontented people of life.

And we should yearn for nothing else when dead, or when in love.”
