The degree of our enlightenment is the degree of passion that we will have for the whole world." ~The Greystone Mandala

"Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Do not go gentle into that good night."

Dylan Thomas


In “Conversations with God”, by Neale Donald Walsch, there is a warning I think of. I refer to it as the Atlantis passage, and I've quoted it a few times before." As I have said, this isn't the first time your civilization has been at this brink,"

God tells Walsch. "I want to repeat this, because it is vital that you hear this. Once before on your planet, the technology you developed was far greater than your ability to use it responsibly. You are approaching the same point in human history again. It is vitally important that you understand this. Your present technology is threatening to outstrip your ability to use it wisely. Your society is on the verge of becoming a product of your technology rather than your technology being a product of your society. When a society becomes a product of its own technology, it destroys itself."

If the Last Republican Debate Did Not Scare You, You are Unscarable/Joe Carl/ Daily Kos

One of the ways I evaluate pretenders to the presidency is what I call the October Test.  I remember walking home from school one day in October of 1962 to parents who seemed unusually subdued and glued to the television set.  Over the next few days, I noticed that they watched a lot of news broadcasts.  (This was before cable news.  Midnight to midnight, Monday to Sunday coverage of important events like the Jodi Arias trial had not yet been perpetrated against the American public.)
It all passed, nothing changed in my young life, and I forgot about what I never had paid much attention to anyway.  It was not until decades later that I picked up a book on the Cuban Missile Crisis.  Other books and TV documentaries followed as I began to understand how deeply frightened a lot of people in knowledgeable positions had been and how close we had come.  Delve into those two sobering weeks and you never again will look at politics or politicians in the same way.
Now, I try to imagine a candidate in the role of JFK.  I try to imagine that candidate, huddled with whomever I think they might surround themselves with, waiting for the next communique from Moscow and facing Armageddon.  I try to imagine whether they would have the character and the prudence, the steadiness and the humility, the patience and the creativity and the overall judgement that it took to save the world during those dark negotiations.
Last night, that pathetic collection of belligerent, sable rattling, self-amplifying warmongers, each trying to outdo the other like schoolboys, failed the October Test — and not by a little.  I am properly scared.
