Towards Total Evolution

First StepAaron Cynic writes at Diatribe Media

It might be odd to say and seemingly unconnected, but when I consider what’s happening on Wall Street, or the halls of government, or the streets of any number of cities across the world, I can’t help but think back to our missions to the moon in the 60’s.

We had a clear goal, a common purpose and yes, it was for the wrong reasons (beating the commies into the 21st century, global superiority, etc) but I like to believe that some piece of every human felt good about doing something so exceedingly evolutionary, so extraordinary, that for one brief second it woke us out of our day to day existence, shook the foundations of all our belief structures and told our collective subconscious “we can do more.”

Because we can. As Bucky Fuller pointed out, we have the technology and capability to feed, clothe, house and provide for every human being on the planet our most basic needs. But instead of doing so, we buy into a belief of scarcity, of hoarding, of fear of losing what little we have. The half percent that sits high atop Reagan’s shining city on a hill is still human, and they’re still afraid too. Sure, they’ve been corrupted by years of power, wealth and gluttony, but they’re still human. We’re all still human. Our hearts still beat, we still yearn for better lives and still want what’s best for each other.

    I couldn’t agree more. As much as my own cynicism pervails in the current climate, I still hold out hope for humanity…

    No, there are a lot of people out there that really don’t wish the best for anyone but themselves.

      Seriously, look up recent stuff from the wall st. protest, there were a bunch of execs or empty suits or salarymen or something that staged some bullshit counter thing where they stood around (surrounded by their storm troop- I mean the NYPD…) drinking champagne. Fuck these people with rusty fence posts wrapped in rusty barbed wire.

        More people should read _Political Ponerology_ by Lobaczewski, in order for them to understand what we’re facing.

        A very illuminating read.

        Of course, I differ with Lobaczewski in how to deal with the problem.

    Wow, the two comments below really hit at the duality of what we face. I’ll take the hope.

    This is what I believe in……truly this is what keeps me going, the hope that we will wake up one day and see we have the tools to make life a better place and to explore the universe and experience it in all of its glory without unnecessary competition and strife.

    Hence the importance of us illuminated beings, developing as Urban planners and urban reformators; its the best method for leading humanity towards evolution, towards education, towards sustainability, towards health, towards freedom from capitalism; but how many of Thee knowing everything is wrong waste their lifes working and making money and surviving in this world craving for a revolution…. Unification through Information!
