(N.B. I am posting two blogs today because my Verizon link to the Internet has been down for over 24 hours. Just shows how vulnerable we are to technology - and potential technological takeover. Support the Electronic Frontier Foundation.)
Reading an article in a recent (Aug. 6) issue of The New American bi-weekly magazine titled 'Women, Wages, and White House Whoppers' - about how the Democrats have distorted statistics to further their political ends, I came across the expression '(t)he idolaters of the gods of equality'. And it struck a chord in me, that I would like to comment on. For it captures the essence of what is going on at this time - the downside of what is going on, and the upside. First, the downside. It caused me to open my 'thought portal' thusly:
So the takeover of America - at least, the American form of government - is proceeding apace.
"A television ad for President Obama bemoans that women supposedly earn 77 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men. The ad goes on to praise the president for making the first law he signed the Lilly Ledbetter Act, 'to help ensure that women are paid the same as men for doing the exact same work'."
Shouldn't there be a 'truth in advertising' law applying to the government as well? Anyway; Next item in the article:
"The Raw Story, a self-described 'progressive news site'…reported on June 5: 'Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) on Tuesday called out presumptive Republican presidential nominee for refusing to support the Paycheck Fairness Act, a measure that Republicans eventually blocked by filibuster. 'For many families in Nevada and across the country, a woman is the only income generator in that family,' Reid explained during a speech on the Senate floor. 'Yet, Republicans have vowed to block this legislation…They've vowed to block legislation that would even the playing field and help women provide for their families, even though Americans overwhelmingly support this legislation.' "
Sigh…There is so much wrong with/objectionable about this statement; beginning with the idea that two wrongs are supposed to make a right. But let me finish, before I get to the first wrong.* Next item:
"A White House website asks in a headline: 'Did You Know That Women Are Still Paid Less Than Men?' The site continues: 'On average, full-time working women earn just 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. This substantial gap is more than a statistic - it has real life consequences. When women, who make up nearly half the workforce, bring home less money each day, it means they have less for the everyday needs of their families, and over a lifetime of work, far less savings for retirement.'"
The closing statement is almost the only true one in the whole paragraph. First, the White House and 'progressives' are playing fast and loose with statistics - and doing it in an extremely demagogic way. I won't go into all the details of that statistic here - suffice it to say, it is comparing apples and oranges - NOT pay "for the exact same work". That is a blatant falsehood; used for political purposes. And it is those 'political purposes' that I want to concentrate on in this blog.
I'll cut to the chase. The Democrat Party has become a front for socialists and outright communists, who want 'a level playing field' all right: they want pure equality. They - the real zealots among those on the Left in politics; and power gravitates to those who desire it the most - want 'a guaranteed living wage' for everybody. Not just for the poor. For everybody; regardless of the type of work done. That's why they are also against 'performance pay'. They don't want people to be paid for the job; but for the social order. For service to the social order. And equal pay - in 'pure' alignment with their top-down way of thinking about these things, i.e., from the level of the controlling and all-powerful state - is desired so that there will be no envy, and nobody better than anybody else. All are equal in such a society - totally.
Which is a humanistic perversion of the truth about Life; a distortion of reality, in 'harmony' with their desire for a way of life described in what is called Agenda 21: total control by the all-powerful state over living conditions, and food 'allotments' (including what you can eat and what you can't eat), and so on and on, ad nauseam. But first, a little on their way to get to such a Brave New World. Which has to do with the major means to their desired end: the demolishing of the Constitution of the United States of America, so that the new, Socialist Republic of America can lead the way into their BNW.
Or New World Order, as it has also been designated. As has one on the other side of the political arena; that one a fascistic NWO. But first things first, in this analysis, of Life In Our Time.
There are two ways to get rid of the Constitution. One is a frontal assault, wholesale; which could - can - happen via an orchestrated 'national emergency', and consequent declaration of Martial Law by an Executive so inclined; putting the nation under emergency footing. Which has all been already planned out. And which the fascists in the administration of George the Second were champing at the bit to pull off, to inaugurate their version of Total Control. And I mean, Total: over the whole world. But, for various reasons, not needing to be gone into here, that didn't happen under his watch.**
But all those pieces are still in place. And the same sort of scenario could still happen, for takeover, via an orchestrated national emergency. But there is also another scenario, to accomplish the same end: by way of the Constitution being eroded. Piece by piece.
The 'liberals' have already accomplished a lot along these lines, with their incessant attacks on the basic structure of the Constitution, by making of it a 'living document'', i.e. to say, subject to the personal political proclivities of the judges 'interpreting' it, and its determinations, and allowing them, under the cover of ingenious judicial devices, like the idea of 'broad construction vs. strict construction', to get around the fundamental judicial principle of original intent. This is a contract; not "just a damn piece of paper," as a recent president characterized it. One has to analyze a contract with an eye as to what was intended, by the parties to the contract, when it was drawn up -OR as it had been amended; with the agreement of all those parties. You can't just say 'Words mean what I say they mean' and get away with it. You can try. As has been done. And it has been a shame that the Left has gotten away with such shenanigans. I say 'the Left', because they are the ones usually behind such attempts, in not wanting to be held back judicially and socially by 'dead white males', to speak to the instant. But the Right, to its dishonor, has not been above the occasional foray in that direction, also.
But let me stay with the main thrust of my thought here. Which is to point out a major challenge to the rule of law in this country - i.e., the Constitution; let us not forget - that has happened in the last four years. And that is the trashing of the 'natural born citizen' requirement for a candidate for the office of the presidency of the United States. The intent, obvious to all who look into it, for that qualification for that particular office - and that particular office only (the Constitution subsequently amended to include the office of the VP as well; logically enough. The Founders couldn't be fairly expected to think of everything) - was to make sure that the person in that position, which was also as the Commander in Chief of the military forces of the Republic, did not have dual loyalties or allegiances.
I won't go into all those details here. Here, I just want to point out how the Far Left has managed to get one of theirs in that key position, by some sleight of hand, involving the Constitution, and its disintegration in their hands -
with the collusion of the Far Right as well. Both camps jockeying for position; angling to take over the American Republic, and make of it merely a member of a region of an international body known, in each instance, as the New World Order.
For humanity to be governed - controlled - by either communists or fascists. Trying to bring in their New Order of Things.
Which has its basis in a piece of truth. Of how the proper New Order of Things is about to come into being. A society based on a different motive for doing, is all. No longer the profit motive (with its training wheels, of interest-bearing money on the one hand and fractional-reserve banking on the other). But an evolutionary higher motive. The highest motive there could ever be. Where people will do things - share goods and services with one another; and give of their best in the process - out of gratitude to their Creator for life with meaning.
Out of, in a word: Love.
And so the quality of such as 'equality' will come into being; yes indeed. Just not in the way that the Left of politics - the Marxists; or the more zealous among them, the Marxist-Leninists - would envision it.
Rather, as the sons and daughters of the Most High.
Now inheriting our reward. For a job well done, in getting here.
to Ascension. To a higher level, a higher dimension, a higher density of being, than the 3D dimension that we have been 'strutting and fretting our hour upon the stage' in, long enough.
Almost too long. To judge by the way that so many have lost The Vision. And are just operating with a hint of it.
A hint, of such as Equality. Which Liberty is not a threat to. On the right level of awareness.
Coming, to a planet near you.
Quite near you.
As we speak.
And P.S. I spent a good part of my life living in a spiritual community, where we were there for the service to 'a worthy cause' - in that case, to the raising of consciousness for 'personal and planetary transformation', into a New Age. A New Age of alignment with our spiritual purposes in life. NOT in desiring a merely materialistic 'heaven on earth', the agenda of some secular humanists. (Other atheists couldn't care less about a 'heaven on earth'. To them, life is simply about the survival of the fittest, and the devil take the hindmost.)
We were not there, and working there, 'for the money'. We were there, for whatever period of our lives, as a contribution to Gaia, and a life dedicated to Spirit; there as a spiritual practice: there for the service. Giving of our best in all that we did for that purpose: to bring God into our daily lives. Living a God-centered life. So in that context, we were all equal. There was an initial cost to join the community, and after that, those who moved onto Staff positions got an 'allowance', besides their room and board - in effect, pocket money. All got the same allowance, regardless of the job done, because we were not working 'for the money'. In that context, I totally support the idea of separating 'income' from 'job'. IN THAT CONTEXT.
I do NOT support the merely materialistic, communist concept of 'treating everybody equally' on all levels. That is not only to create an all-powerful state, running every aspect of its subjects' lives. It is to lose sight of 'The Vision' - of the greater reality, of what life is really, fully all about. And that is NOT just about life on the material plane of existence. It is about spiritual evolution; on a path - The Path - to greater and greater consciousness-unfolding; greater and greater awareness-building; greater and greater Heart opening.
I hope that is clear. And that people understand the difference. For it is a crucial difference, and distinction.
And also just for the record: that community is going through some changes, as the economic system in the world breaks down, and more such spiritually-minded people don't want to have to go back to it - to carry the concept of living one's life in Service, back into that dying world, as an example to others, of how to live a God-centered life. Many want to live their lives out in a dedicated, spiritual community, with likeminded people. So, pressures are building there, to accommodate different people's needs - young people wanting to start families there, and so forth. And thus, pressures are building there to create more income, for 'a living wage' - just as in the world at large. (It is a non-profit charitable Trust,* so it doesn't make a lot of money for 'wages' for its staff; the bulk of its proceeds being - legally - ploughed back into the operation of the charity, in guest accommodation, etc.) So, there will be difficulties, in trying to keep to the focus, of not doing the work, or a particular job, for 'the money', as in the commercial world; to keep the awareness alive, of doing things - and giving of one's best in the process - out of gratitude to our Creator for life with meaning. And if everybody will do that - WHEN everybody will do that - 'all else will be added unto' us. Out of the Abundance that is inherent in the universe.
As long as we keep that door open, with Right Consciousness.

1 Just to say here: The creation of a welfare class - and the phenomenon of Single Mother Families was one piece of that plan - was, indeed, designed on purpose: to put pressure on the government to take over more control in people's lives, and for the people to look to the government to take care of them; resulting, ultimately, in total governmental control, i.e., socialism, or its Big Brother, communism. The way to bring that pressure about was to bankrupt the existing capitalist order in catering to the created-by-design welfare class, and their continued and growing - and orchestrated - demands. In America the designated process was called the Cloward-Piven Strategy ('of Manufactured Crisis'), after the two socialist scholars behind it. Look it up.
2 Lest anybody think that I am 'anti-female', because of my opposition to the creation of a Single Mother Family welfare class, let me briefly here offer credit to The Ladies. It was a career woman (living a quiet, out-of-the-way life now) who in particular put the kibosh on the best-laid plans of Cheney & Co. in trying to bring about a war with Iran, that could well have triggered (and still could) a World War III.* And then there was Sibel Edmonds (ex-FBI translator turned whistleblower; who has written a book about her experiences). And Susan Lindauer (ex-CIA Asset, who likewise turned whistleblower, and likewise has written a book about her experiences). And ex-FBI Special Agent Coleen Rowley (who wrote a 13-page letter to the head of the FBI detailing her knowledge of a cover-up regarding the official 9/11 story). And Dr. (in Materials Engineering Science) Judy Wood (who has written a book exceptionally detailing the use of a Directed Energy Weapon on 9/11). And the four females, including Dr. (M.D.) Virginia Livingston-Wheeler, who did magnificent work in biomedical research into a microbial link to cancer (and have never gotten proper recognition for it, because it went against the medical-pharmaceutical complex's hugely money-making take on the matter). And then there were the two gals, Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroeder, who wrote the best-selling and important book, 'Psychic Discoveries Behind The Iron Curtain'; published way back in 1970. And …and…and……
I am not against women in business per se, instead of their staying at home and doing the most important job in life that there is: the raising, and civilizing, of the children. Let a female do what feels best to her to do. But I am against anybody being manipulated by people with an agenda.
