"Truth will first be ridiculed, then violently opposed, and finally accepted as self-evident"
Trying to get straight info for everyone,
media, police, judiciary, officials, church, law and science still lie to us;
hiding corruption or incompetence.
Though it's a one-horse show,
folk around the globe help out,
Now working for
And it's a heavy task.
There's lots of room for error
but keep looking for truths
`from haggard dawn thru sleepy midnight'
mostly singlehandedly despite friendly offers,
to set 'virtual' products into readable form.
Rickety equipment isn't state-of-art:-
(maybe not quite
Like piloting (trucks, ships, air-liners - same difference) or soldiering:
site-work's long, dull routines & short, sharp panics
Any complaints ?
Well - some ask why we're critical of `establishments',
scientists to corrupt
and thereby risk offending
very powerful people?
Because we know most abusers always hide within
posers to evil-intentioned
So we quote:-
"Offend people? . . . There are people it is one's duty to offend"
from Lord Reith, first head of the BBC
Any other moans ?
Well, we find bureaucracies
and other power structures conspire to keep
`Government' web sites waste your time,
mostly hiding or denying information
[ try to find UK's `property tax / council tax' rules, anywhere! ]
Coupled with high 'phone charges
- even local calls cost a heck of a lot here -
that meant rising before dawn to cut access times,
or working well after dusk, for slightly lower phone rates. Often both.
Change is promised - big companies and the elite do
get cheap / free access - but in
we ordinary folk are conned by extorting cartels and monopolies
Given up private motor
- like all those guns
we no longer use -
so travel is a tad inconvenient, but readily endured, except in worst weather.
whose dog is that ?
Similarly our decision
- shocking financial advisers -
to take less than
industrial blue-collar wage
(to live within a non-commercial income),
is prompted by more than blind altruism or self-sacrifice.
We want to be free from prejudice
Socio-financial `rankings' identify with group bias & racism.
insidious and unavoidable
unless you abandon the financial rat-race.
more than a minimum brings greed, prejudice and unhappiness.
- how naive could we be? -
are attacks by greedy / incompetent / corrupt establishment bosses.
Initially lawyers' threats,
then physical & financial threats,
abuse of `authority' / misuse of police powers / illegal acts by conspiring officials
which we're withstanding
m-a-y-b-e at some risk to
Greedy cowards think that financial or physical threats will always silence the truth.
And truth once was
open-ness has a chance:
you can access evidence as fast as it is uploaded
" . . . now, we do not think that knowledge should be kept from the multitude
and hence our infidelity and our revealings"
REPORTEDLY A MASONIC RITUAL
in evening thoughts,
questions can recur -
is struggle worthwhile?
After all, even if one or two are are helped by
doesn't everyone still come to same end?
Hey ! - Don't take that epitaph
"It is hard ageunst the strem to stryve"
MS. 15th Century
"Sua cuique vita obscura est"
- "Each sees their life as dark"
- that's only subjective.
Reality is objective
and more cheerful
"A justified person should not be downcast"
- Taanith 15
"Pass on your way then, with a smiling face" - Meditations of Aurelius
if you face struggles
we're with you,
here's two thoughts
"Is the only challenge in the world
to be greed and viciousness?
Is the only satisfying power the
power of the ascent over men, the only dream, ambition?
And must the alternative to greed,
evil, ambition - be only sluggishness?"
One - who could fight and conquer,
shall - by faith and nurture,
be - a channel for all
- Lao Tzu
Take it easy,
Keep the faith
