There is no reason to waste attentions on the latest buzz about Assange and that whole “freedom of speech” thing.
The buzz being finessed and molded into a hot piece of international gossip.
A piece of divisive “news” meant to stir our “little people” ire and give our” little people” mouths something to shout about..argue about…and hurt one another in useless and heated fights over it.
For those of us who are well beyond the age of childhood, familiar with basic psychology and not afflicted by serious brain damage concerning reasoning and logic , this hoopla is nothing but a transparent (and embarrassingly lame) distraction….
It’s no more sophisticated than the distractions parents concoct in order to prevent their toddler children from finding hidden holiday gifts.
And no less insulting than if those children were fully grown adults experiencing the creepy and exaggerated smiles of their parents still insisting that there is a Santa Claus leaving them their gifts.
This is for our siblings who don’t have time to find what they need to or are in the vulnerable positions of being too young and easy to influence.
The following links should be helpful in
1- understanding that all gates have been shut and locked re our “freedom of press/speech”, since a good amount of the noise in this issue are from countless “experts” waxing on about the “legalities” of it. That never ending and serious sounding talk of “what we can do”…when nothing is being done and never will be.
2-understanding the full scope of this scourge as covering all of the “little people” under the rule of whomever and whatever in whichever country..not just us.
3-helping us pick through the weeds and garbage of “news” meant to hint at “hope” or to turn the flame up on a stovetop of our collective fears, anger and other irrational responses.
If one is not filling the valuable space in one’s mind with useless debris, then it stands to reason that much more space will be available for the good stuff.
Good stuff, like learning to forgive one another..because we have all been misled equally, no matter what side we thought we were on.
Good stuff, like ditching the stress, the nerves, the headaches and tummy upsets..over things already written in stone.
Good stuff like learning how to quit playing “baby” and stand up to accept bitter truths as adults..without apologizing or looking around for someone else to think for us.
For Mommy and Daddy are grinning really hard and filling the room, from end to end, with one single topic…without any intention nor care about how it affects the “children”…just as long as we aren’t peeking in the closet to find the things that are anything but “gifts”.
These links are genuine “freedom of speech” violations to be aware of..
(..if only to grieve the protected position we no longer have as human beings..
…so we can concentrate on how we are going to make the unbearable bearable for our children/family, living as slaves, in the years to come.)
