Your reproductive instinct is like a parasite so finely wired to you it will hijack your intellect and use it to posture all manner of arguments that justify behaviors that will ultimately ruin you but benefit its replication in your future offspring. The obvious question that arises, however, is, to whom is it that the arguments are being made to?
When humans lived as nomads, or in tribes and even in clans, the pressures for survival came largely from the environment and other neighboring rivals. Most perfections that currently inhabit the human frame emerged out of these pressures. But ever since humans transitioned into feudalistic and more limiting societal structures, the pressures of rivals and environment were largely diminished. Instead, the pressures for survival came mostly from artificially constructed social structures defined by politicians and clergymen. Consequently, now, many thousands of years later, humans have been selected out for optimal use by such leaders.
Now, in the 21st century, a large contingency of humans exists that have been selected out by a system of laws under the oversight of rulers. These laws have multiplied and have been scattered among the populace as tools by which to protect themselves but often to be used as weapons with aggressive intent to destroy a neighbor, a family member or a business rival. This system has put in place rewards and punishments that have given incentive to use these laws. This system has taken center stage in nations that derived their legal system from British-common-law.
Through these environmental pressures, some races (in particular the white-Caucasian race and all those mixed with them) have exposed a genetic predisposition to feeling oppressed. A hypersensitivity to wrong-doing for themselves and on behalf of others. While the tendency may have had a proper use in early stages of development for the Nation-State, now that most threats have been abated, the ludicrousness of this new human feature (the victim-gene) has never been so nakedly exposed. These humans, now, spend much mental energy seeking out reason to feel oppressed or to champion others. If only they knew, this tendency was genetically selected by their newest rulers, like a bloodhound bread for its keen sense of smell.
If seeking the approval of others is the principle by which you live by, then you will find this to be no principle at all for you will become someone different from one day and person to the next. Principles are to be like columns to your character, not the sails that follow the whims of the open sea. You must choose. Become one of the columns for greatness, or maneuver yourself between them to extract what you can from the host. Be a parasite or be a person. Pick one for you can not be both!
The game of life is this. In order for it to spin, it must chase its own tail and think it’s not her own.
The word lie is not too dissimilar from the word life. Because in our words is inscribed the wisdom of the ancients that forged it. The cycles of pain and destruction persisted in erasing what was learned until man grew wise enough to preserve it in the words spoken even by those causing the destruction. It is the great secret that is made plain every time we speak.
But fear those dwelling in the dust whom have now gathered their strengths to kill our very words. Even evil fears them. For they are like a parasite that targets the core of all immune systems rendering the body of good and evil unresponsive to the threat it bears. Unresponsive. This is the fate of the body once the language is destroyed and thus, far more effective at destroying the human enterprise than targeting the body itself. Target the word, and all that has followed will be lost.
Life is a game, yes. An illusion. See the illusion plainly, and you will be lost into nihilism. Or choose to play the game, and be the avatar that prevails. Life is not for cowards.
The more you persist on enduring and living through your tests and trials rather than overcoming them, the more they will persist in your life and bring suffering to you and those around you. And don’t be fooled into thinking that the numbness you’ve developed over that time is any sign of strength. Quite the opposite, in fact! It is your demise. So long as individual humans fail to learn this lesson, so too will continue to be the fate of humanity. One cycle of pain and suffering after another. We will either solve the puzzle or lose our humanity by avoiding to do so. Such is how life tends to teach us with its fractal order of things.
Nobody hates a person for their race unless they perceive the person identifies themselves first as a member of their race. When any individual, identifies themselves as being human, first, and as a member of a race or religion- last; And they also think the same of others, they will see little to no resistance or objection in their path solely due to the amount of melanin in their skin.
Rulers often express the ideas that would benefit the people through the mouth of a clown to make the people agree with the rulers instead.
We often build outside because we want to avoid building within. Consequently much of human achievement and expansion has been fueled by our traumas and the avoidance of personal growth needed to overcome them.
It may seem to be the case that adversity renders great and powerful individuals, but the truth of the matter is that only these individuals are capable of emerging triumphant from such adversity. So it is largely despite it and not because of it. Therefore know that if you subject adversity on others in order to create greatness, what you are actually doing is creating a barrier, through which only the very strong will emerge and the vast majority that you have inflicted this on, will be selected out.
If you are quick to see demons in the character of others, it may be long overdue for you to take a good look at yourself. The mirror, may in fact, reflect the monster you seek.
