The Disillusioned Earthbound Human: A Tragedy  (Part VII: Bang bang, you’re dead!)

EBH has abandoned reality.

For how else can one describe the incomprehensible, the unfathomable, the inconceivable folly this miniscule speck of microbial matter undertakes?

How else can one explain his self-centered, self-focused, self-gratifying decision that will in fact negatively affect millions upon millions of EBHs, generations over centuries?

Blinded by self-adoration, this stumbling knuckle dragging, ugh mumbling buffoon, this inconsequent ant scurrying about the surface of an obscure space rock, itself a purposeless speck of space dust, floating, spinning, locked in a monotonous orbit around one of millions of yellow stars, literally signs away, forever, any semblance of peace and prosperity for every EBH, for all time.

Arrogance. Narcissism. But more damning, disillusionment now condemns, not the rock, but those creatures, every one of them, to a virtual hell.

For now we find, not one, but a slew of these specks of walking, talking space dust, in their tiny, squeaky little voices, boldly proclaiming themselves kings, tsars, emperors, presidents, rulers of every conceivable title, for life.

As explained previously, that impressive sounding “for life” clause, in the case of most of these masters of an existence they still could not explain, much less dominate, did not actually translate into many rotations and/or orbits. This primarily due to the fact that the list of perspective kings, tsars, emperors, presidents, all masters of the rock in waiting, was long and distinguished.

But let’s consider also the streets, for we, of course, cannot exclude those poor, dumb, ignorant masses, those hordes of lovable gullible, (also) tiny specks of walking, talking space dust, most readily bowing and kneeling, most curtsying obediently, most readily accepting every fabricated word of declared entitlement and privileges by whomever stood before them, without question.

Yes, it’s true; the political apathy of the EBH on the street has not changed much through the eons.

Those EBHs that displayed a functioning conscious? Those that expressed reservations (at any level) regarding the ascending ruler for life? Those that, truly grounded in reality and sensibility, gave a damn about humanity? The rights of the citizen? A level of equality and fairness?

These EBHs, of course, were quickly identified, charged with treason and/or sedition and thrown into the deepest, darkest dungeon of the castle; many others were not that lucky, or maybe I should say, not that unfortunate. For they were simply beheaded in the public square.

Execution of one’s opponent in the public square was just another aspect of archaic political theater, another ploy that has not changed in many “civilized” countries.

This crude, but highly efficient method of eliminating a seditious foe served/serves well on two counts for those in power. First, it did/does in fact rid the kingdom of a treasonous, bastard, but it was/is also a highly effective way of quieting other upstarts contemplating a move against the new tyrant, dictator, or fuhrer.

Before moving on allow me to clarify something. Before the kingdoms evolved, before nations and even provinces became the thing, there existed only the formative, basic, no frills tribes.

And it would be foolish for anyone (even me) to assume that, even back then, tribal members did not squabble amongst each other, with members of neighboring tribes, say, at the well, on the grazing grounds, at the monthly panchanga, over a curvaceous Lilith. And it would be even sillier to assume these confrontations did not, on occasion, escalate to fist to cuffs altercations, and certainly an unfortunate death or two.

I believe I’ve made it clear, EBHs could and would fall over dead, at any time for a myriad of reasons ranging from a case of congenital heart disease to being stabbed in that heart by a jealous boyfriend; but, with the establishment of massive kingdoms and nations, EBH was about to cease to exist in impressive numbers.

For each of the mighty bite size rulers scuttled about marking off, claiming, declaring sectors of the rock as their exclusive real estate until there was no more land to claim; those with kingdoms along shorelines extended their dominance far beyond their beachfront, claiming rights to huge portions of oceans and seas.

But, that was just the beginning of EBH’s adopted, confusing philosophy of isolationism based on ignorance and fear.

After the establishment of this border, the rulers next commissioned massive, formidable, indestructible, metal encased armies to not only defend said border, but also breech the borders of other kingdoms.

Because, if there was one trait all kings, tsars, emperors, presidents, rulers of every conceivable title shared in common, it was the desire to gain more property for their kingdom, more slaves for their nobleman landowners, and more gold and silver for himself; of course, acquiring a new queen, or at least a fresh concubine was always a plus.

Needless to say, it was on across the rock.

Incredibly, each of the narrow minded rulers actually believed then (as they all still believe now), that theirs was a duly recognized and respected sovereign kingdom, and that they and their citizens were safe behind their well defined borders and gates.

They naively believed this because remember, EBH has abandoned reality, and now soundly resides in La La Land. But, you and I, being firmly set in reality, knowledgeable of multiple, irrefutable historical events, know well that simply was not the case.

We know boundaries and borders are abstract. We know in the real world, in the rational world, that scratch in the sand, made with a twig, did not a border make. (Go up a couple of miles and see how many fences and declared borders you can count.)

 We know no matter how many packs are forged, how many treaties are signed, how many truths are agreed to, the time gained only allowed for, provided for more planning for a greater offensive. 

We know this only because we have witnessed it happen continuously through the ages. No matter how EBH fortifies that scratch, defends it, verbally forbids, defies all other EBHs from crossing it, invariably, some arrogant, greedy, war mongering ass will not only walk up to his scratch, not only cross over it, but cross over and proceed to rape, pillage, and plunder at will.

It is a well documented, historical EBH fact, no matter the efforts taken to maintain control over kingdoms nations, territories, all will soon enough fall in ashes. (Need a current visual? Google the modern cities of Aleppo and Mosul.)

And so it was, EBH’s landscape had changed once again as marauding bands of warriors and bandits, most dispatched by greedy, powerful kings, roamed the rock, ravaging everything and anything in their path, spilling the blood of millions upon millions of innocent EBHs.

The names of the kings toppled? To many to name here. The names of their kingdoms? Inconsequential, at least for this work.

What one needs to take away from this is, global cooperation, collaboration, mutual agreements (fledgling that they may have been) were out the proverbial window. Life on the rock had evolved to he who builds the greater army rules, and he who rules~well, gets to rule until someone bigger and stronger comes along; and, someone always eventually comes along.

While some alliances were formed, these were no guarantee to a successful campaign to the whole divide and conquer mentality.

Before I offer some examples, legitimizing my statement, a few words about the life and death of an EBH.

As stated earlier, on conception, or soon their after, it is highly probable that an EBH, while yet in the developmental stage, becomes consciously aware of their state of being; their existence. Researchers continue to document children recalling events and memories from the womb.  This learning, listening, and absorbing is existentialism at it’s purist form; in fact, the ultimate baseline of human existence.

At this point, it falls to the parents as to whether the developing EBH will benefit from a fact based education, built on unadulterated truths, the good and the absolutely despicable, an education on which the child can build a strong, meaningful, purposeful, reality based life, or simply adhere to the status quo practice of bombarding the child with the fabricated, fictionalized, embellished, fairytale bullshit version of life, suitable only for having ones child falling in line with the rest of the zombotic (yeah, that’s my word) morons. For those who believe the true education of babies falls to state educational systems, uh, no. For those who believe the government mandated educational curricula is for the benefit of the individual, welcome to Utopia; and, please do not remove your blinders.

But something else begins for the EBH at conception, at the commencement of living, and that, of course, is the process of dying; the termination of the life just begun.

For as also stated earlier, everything, absolutely every creature that consciously awakens to an existence on the rock (any creature that enjoys sight, hearing, and voice are considered to possess consciousness), every species, great and small, predator or prey, walking, crawling, flying or swimming, will, at some point, fall dormant once again, will cease to be.

Now, here is where the influence of misguided Aristotle wannabe philosophers and conniving, false hearted religious extremists fundamentalists shaman corrupt the life process.

School boy philosophers only regurgitate what they were assigned to read in classrooms; for there is no knowledge, only archaic published creative writing.

As for shaman, virtually all of them, declare the act of conception as a immaculate miracle by the hand of their almighty mythological god, for this defines their trade; they contend death, the act of ceasing to exist, is some kind of judgment day of sorts, the day the EBH will face his maker and account for how, and why, he lived the way he did on the rock.

This in and of itself is why most (certainly not all) EBHs actually fear ceasing to exist, this is why they dread exhaling that final breath; judgment day is touted, instilled by the shaman, very effectively, as we’ll soon enough learn, into the minds of gullible EBHs, as some kind of mumbo jumbo spiritual event finding the soul (the conscious) floating  (I presume), to the infamous Pearly Gates.

It is here, at the gates, where each and every EBH will one day stand, before the keeper of The Book, the log, the record into which every Earthbound act, good and evil, just and unjust, chaste and downright gravity defying animalistic, has been duly documented. 

It is here that the EBH’s life will be biblically scrutinized, in it’s absolute entirety.

Getting a little nervous? There’s more.

For depending on the outcome of said review (it’s unknown if one can employ legal representation or not), the EBH soul will either be granted passage through the gates to Heaven, the ultimate paradise, or rejected and referred instead to the darker gates of Hell.

Please note, while Heaven is a blissful paradise, the proverbial land of milk and honey, Hell is a grossly, despicable place where the disobedient, sinful EBH’s soul will be tortured for all eternity by the hideous, evil of the most evil, the dreaded “I’ll be here all week,” former Archangel Lucifer (a.k.a., Satan, a.k.a a lot of other names, depending on the organized religion).

Sad sack Lucifer (a character of unprecedented Hollywood fame, actually created by Italian Franciscan Priest, and early creative writer of horror stories, Ludovico Maria Sinistrari), is scripted as having been expelled from Heaven for raising an army and trying to topple the king, a.k.a., God (scenario sound familiar?).

Whilst all that makes for great reading, and even better Hollywood action packed movies, we are going to stick with simple irrefutable facts. Facts that explain clearly and concisely that EBH existence is, in reality, but a mundane, simplistic biochemical, physiological process. (Sorry, no car chases involved, no exploding buildings, or crashing airliners.)

Let me begin with a snippet of cardiac embryology; because you see, before the expectant female EBH even knows she is pregnant, within her womb a tiny semblance of a human heart has taken it’s first beat. This tiny, tiny heart begins its rhythmic delivery of oxygen and nutrients to, not only to itself, but to other developing organs and systems.

Construction of the EBH fetus is in progress.

Now consider this, before an EBH exhales his last breath, at whatever point in his life that occurs, that same heart has ceased to beat.

The exhalation of the last breath, what is generally accepted by most as the point of death, is actually nothing more than the lifeless lungs collapsing within the chest cavity, forcing any remaining air out by way of the trachea.

This is the next point of EBH existence where shaman corrupt the life process.

EBHs are told the corpse of their dearly departed must be handled in a sanctimonious way, prayed over, mourned over, dressed up, made up, encased in a ornamented casket, and buried in a proper, consecrated plot: a cemetery, conveniently provided by the shaman’s religious order (for a nominal fee, of course). And, while none of this is necessarily bad, that is if you don’t consider the financial burden placed on the grieving family, as the average cost of burying a loved one is roughly eight thousand dollars (and rising), and that is for the basic package, not including entertainment, food and whatnot for mourners, it is simply unnecessary, and in reality, counterproductive, for the departed EBH that is.

Allow me to throw a curious point in before moving on. Curious because self-absorbed, egotistical, arrogant, ignorant EBH habitually stands staring up at a bunch of rocks, floating aimlessly through a space, a void of nothingness and seriously, honestly, sincerely asks, “Am I alone?” As he does this for the umpteenth time, there is a resounding chorus of laughter (inaudible to his inferior hearing), as every other life form surrounding him cracks up. Some of those life forms actually waiting patiently just for him. Read on.

Because in truth is, the process of EBH existence does not end with the ceasing of the heart, with the exhalation of breath. Actually, in reality, the exhalation of trapped air from lifeless lungs only signals the commencement of the next phase of EBH existence.

For an important transformation has begun.

On the ceasing of the beating of the heart, on the ceasing of the circulation of oxygen enriched blood, on the ceasing of the nourishment of cells, the tissue, the matter that, up to this point, has comprised the EBH’s physical body, begins a biochemical-physiological change; a simple process commonly referred to as decomposition.

You see, every EBH, every kings, tsar, emperor, president, all masters of the rock, past, present, and yet to rise, every nobleman and every slave, every woman, every child, of every color, religion, and tongue is nothing more than a collection of the very same minerals, carbohydrates, proteins, and fats (typically amounting to about four grams in total weight); oh yes, and lots of water. The EBH body is roughly 65% water.

An important and almost always overlooked fact: All EBHs are biologically identical. 

So, considering this, on ceasing to exist as a walking talking EBH (stick with me here), with the physical body no longer required, all those elements that composed the EBH frame simply return to their true astrological, pure state of existence, whence they came.

This constitutes the second occurrence of absolute existentialism.

Essentially, other lifeforms existing on the rock, move to act biologically on behalf of EBH, assisting in his transformation. The water within him simply evaporates back into the atmosphere, while a literal army of creatures, some in the form of bacteria, aerobic and anaerobic, either already existing within the EBH, or existing in the soil, nematode worms and plenty of blowflies, some helpful fungi, all these Earthbound creatures work meticulously, in unison, on EBH’s corpse, effectively reducing the now useless mass of tissue back to his natural individual properties; many EBHs simply, but affectionately, refer to this as returning to dust or ash.

What has actually happened is, the physical aspect of EBH has transitioned into the next phase of existence, and, in doing so, now truly becomes one with his floating space rock, now truly becoming one with the universe.

Ironically, what EBH spends his whole life, his whole Earthbound existence searching for, is in reality his final destination. He is home, no starship, no intergalactic travel required. And perhaps the true message here is, EBH should stop staring up and out, caring about what’s out there, and focus more on, not only what’s within himself, on the state of his own existence,  but on the state of his rock.

But there is one more transition which has taken place, the transition of the conscious. The very essence of life, that magical mystical presence within each and every EBH, that baffling conglomeration of all those twenty something senses, sight and sound, hearing and taste, pain and suffering, love. Every emotion every EBH experiences in his oh so brief walk on the rock: life. The conscious, the one aspect of that life no one, not one physician, not one scientist, not one shaman can explain, will never be able to explain.

Simply stated, the transition of the EBH conscious is of no concern to the living. But if in fact the measure of an EBH life is based on the wear and tear evidenced on the conscious (yes, I’m being facetious), I’m absolutely certain many will be classified as “good as new,” or “rarely used.”

I explained that nothing leaves the rock, ever. All those millions upon millions upon millions of not only EBHs, but all creatures that have ceased to exist, are still upon the rock, just in their new state of existence.

And this is where I will divert from facts and interject an opinion, for having personally lost so many precious loved ones, some to mere aging, others to diseases, and one to senseless violence, I can certainly understand an EBH’s family wishing to preserve the physical body of a loved one; wishing to preserve tissue through embalming and encasement in a beautiful (expensive) casket. But, in reality, while all helps the family and friends deal with the loss, this only hinders and delays the transition process of the dearly departed to that next, important phase of existence.

The remains of all EBHs should be allowed to transition as quickly as possible into their new state. On average, a cadaver  (body) can take up to 12 years just to transition to the skeleton stage; and that’s being buried in a simple wood (not hard wood) casket, and that’s also without embalming (embalming preserves tissue). Of course, anything above and beyond this only extends the transition process, and depending on the level of intervention, could prevent the EBH body from completely transitioning at all. 

Again, I can totally understand the whole grief thing, but I also know, and believe me when I say this, shaman know nothing of what follows life; they only know how to spew, like the great philosophers, what some nut job before them has scribbled in a psychotic and/or drunken stupor. Of course there are those who make a damn good living at it. (Check the checking account balance of your favorite organized religion  and/or televangelist personality.)

Their fabricated stories of the alleged afterlife are but embellished recantations of fairytales concocted by the likes of Tertullian and Sinistrari, creative writers both. Their false mythological rants, warning, and threats bear no truth, and blatantly counter reality; for if there were truly a judgment day coming, they themselves would be high tailing it through the woods in hiding.

Okay, back to verifiable facts and reality.

EBH has effectively shifted into not only to a self-destructive phase, but a phase that will find him committing the most outrageous atrocities imaginable. He will not only kill for land, and gold, and power, he will kill for fun.

EBH will begin to kill, and never stop; the sword will be in his hand, the blood will stain his clothing, but as he carries out his dastardly deeds, he will boldly bellow, “for the glory of God,” “in God’s name,” and “may God give us strength.” Of course, for men clad in armor, from head to toe, bearing shields and armed with swords, mounted on hearty steeds, also armored, they really didn’t need God’s help in slaughtering defenseless villagers and tribesmen, especially the women and children.

The next part of this series, the final part, will focus exclusively on what historians call the Inquisitions and Crusades; I feel the need to separate these from the acts of war. I believe you will understand why after reading. 

My point at this juncture is simply, EBH has descended to a monstrous stage, in fact, his present phase of existence, or more aptly stated, non-existence.

And now some examples of EBH at war.

I will begin with what can only be a classic example of irony, sad that it may be. For the first recorded war was The Battle of Kadesh. This battle (territorial) took place in 1273 B.C.E., in a sector of the rock known as Syria.

The irony? In 2017 C.E., a war is raging in a sector of the rock known as Syria.

Well, needless to say war has raged ever since (and, as stated earlier, I’m pretty sure even before 1273 B.C.E.), over every conceivable reason. And let it suffice it to said the loss of EBH lives as a result of all the fighting is not only incalculable, but incomprehensible.

I specify due to the fighting only because the collateral loss of life was/is always equally staggering.

This count includes deaths of civilians, women and children, elderly, non-combatants in whatever form they happened to present.

I use the term collateral loss of life, but other writers have used other terms to describe the perpetrators of these often not so accidental massive events, terms like murder, genocide, slaughter, extermination, butchery, massacre, and holocaust.

Some quick examples.

First,  the most infamous, most recognizable personality associated with mass  murder, peace time or war, the notorious Adolf Hitler and his Nazi forces. This wannabe king of the rock is credited with over six million non-combatant deaths, mostly Jewish citizens, as it was his goal to eradicate the Jews off the face of the rock. His methods for accomplishing his kills are the stuff of nightmares. Keep in mind the Jewish kills are only Jewish kills, for there were certainly an undetermined number of other kills.

Next, Pol Pot, the madman Cambodian dictator who led his Khmer Rouge forces against his own people; he reportedly killed some one point five (plus) million, farmers, women and children, burying them in mass graves in the infamous Killing Fields. A quick side note to Pol Pot’s murderous rage, because often it’s asked, “How do these crazies come into power?” Well, here’s a great example, and no, this will not be in your American or World History textbooks.

In 1969, as the Vietnam War raged in Southeast Asia, then President Richard Nixon, and his National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger, conducted a top secret (rogue) military campaign against the then neutral Cambodian government. Nixon ordered what is commonly referred to as carpet bombing of the Cambodian jungles. Carpet bombing because it is reputed that American B-52 bombers dropped over 100 thousand tons of bombs on the country’s villages, and people. When the bombings stopped in 1970, a ground invasion ensued. The results were (estimated), over seven million Cambodians dead, with an estimated two million more missing. Thanks to Mr. Nixon and Mr. Kissinger, the Cambodian landscape was devastated, the government was in shambles, the President ousted; the country was in absolute turmoil. That is until out of the jungle, in a disciplined military formation, soldiers marched onto the streets of Phnom Penh, led by a young, calm and collected Pol Pot. The people, seeing these Cambodian defenders rise from the aftermath of hell, initially rejoiced; but the revelry did not last even a day, as this Khmer Rouge immediately set to it’s own butchery and torture.

Third case, Chairman Mao Tse Sung, China’s savior and master mind of the infamous, “Great Leap Forward.” Chairman Mao did not march out of a jungle, he assumed the leadership of China, under the Communist Movement, after a bitter (and bloody) post World War II rebellion fought against the powerful, but declining Nationalist Party. Mao was attempting to model his New China after Stalin’s Soviet Union, but things did not work out that way. Instead of becoming a leader for the people, Mao’s doctrines and policies and politics resulted in the deaths of over 45 million Chinese citizens in some four years.

Okay, one more and, while the foregoing has offered data covering years, months, wars, this case begins with hours and minutes, and extends through decades. I speak of course of the bombings of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Then President Harry S. Truman, is the culprit in this case, as he is the EBH who ordered the bombings, on advisement from staff. On August 6, 1945, the first ever atomic bomb was delivered via the now infamous Enola Gay, a state of the art Boeing B-29 Superfortress, to the city of Hiroshima. It is estimated that some 80 thousand Japanese citizens died instantly. Three days later, a second B-29, the Boxcar, delivered a second atomic bomb to the city of Nagasaki, instantly killing an estimated 40 thousand Japanese citizens.

Of course, the immediate deaths are gross estimations considering those citizens within the proximity of ground zero were vaporized, the city reduced to ruins. And, the total number of deaths attributed to radiation poisoning and other related injuries, will never truly be known. 

In all these examples, I’m stating that perpetrators killed, which is true; but, in actuality, all these EBHs, and so, so many others, not only killed their victims, but did so in horrendous ways, for incomprehensible reasons. Truman allegedly dropped his atomic bombs on Japanese citizens, non-combatants, elderly, women and children, as a show of force, a warning, to Stalin and the Soviet Union. In most all other cases, such as with Hitler’s Nazis, and Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge, victims were first horribly tortured, physically mutilated, disemboweled, while yet alive, experimented on, no matter old, women, young children, infants.

Now, having shared those unfortunately all to common examples, for there are many, many more, a final word on the subject of collateral casualties and the EBHs responsible.

I will begin by stating, one would be hard pressed to find a leader, that while engaged in some level of conflict, whether that conflict pitted him against another world leader, or his own people, that did not commit some level of atrocity against the innocent.

The truth is, every country engaged in warfare is guilty of war crimes, in fact, guilty of horrendous (as if there were any other kind) crimes against humanity. The matter comes down to concealment, doctoring of evidence. The evidence against Chairman Mao was under military guard until just recently. The evidence against Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, concealed under the label “Top Secret.”

EBH has evolved into the proverbial killing machine. But, his best work is yet to come.

The Disillusioned Earthbound Human: A Tragedy  (Part III, “Rooaarrr!)

Revised July 2017
An irrefutable fact: A species, humanoid or otherwise, will not persist without the continued, cyclic reproduction and proper nurturing, the educating and indoctrinating of new generations in responsible protecting, sustaining, and advancing their given culture.

In every EBH tribe, there existed two genders. A male gender and a female gender. And through copulation of the male and female (yes, I must be specific here), a child EBH was conceived and delivered into life on the rock.

Now, please understand this, only because here lies one of the greatest fallacy regarding EBH female and male relationships; while different in general appearance, that is to say, the female was fairer than the male, while she is often smaller in frame, with genitalia and a reproductive system specific to permit child conception, development and delivery, the female EBH was strong and capable of standing toe to toe, side by side, not only in conducting day to day tasks, of any category, but also in protecting home and community.

It was in fact the case, the female was often considered more ferocious and dominant than the her male counterpart, in that she had to provide food for herself and her offspring, and protect the nest, as it were.

That’s right, I said had to provide for herself and her babies, only because, since their primal days, the male EBH was very often suitable for accomplishing one task efficiently, or at the very least effectively. He could fertilize her egg. Other than that, he was unreliable as partners go.

Not much, many will tell, has changed in that regard.

But also understand,  male and female EBH did work and play together, struggled and accomplished as an effective team, supported and encouraged one another through many challenges, domestic and society linked, as equal members of a community, large or small. For just as there were plenty of deadbeats to deal with, there were also plenty of males who appreciated and embraced the skills and talents the strengths of the female.

These two distinct and independent EBHs had, after all, woke up together on the rock, and they would survive together on it. This fact just seemed to be an inherent understanding. It seemed once again whomever, whatever deposited this curious species onto their tiny rock, had considered every aspect of survivability; this had not been a random act, some bizarre evolutionary process, some wham bam I just made a man event. 

At one point the female EBH was held in an iconic position in society, with tribes commissioning statues in her honor. These flattering, towering bare breasted images attested to her undeniable providence in communities.

In some cultures, she was not restricted even in her sexual prowessness.

Let’s take a look at the Etruscan woman, the better half of a pre-Roman Italian culture, as an example.

The Etruscan woman was a sophisticated, empowered, integral element of the advanced society. She was involved in commerce, politics, and society. What made this woman unique was that she also enjoyed the freedom to participate in, engage in casual sexual trysts with whomever she pleased. 

Because these women prided themselves in physical fitness and impeccable appearance, they considered being seen nude by others, especially men, as a compliment, not as an embarrassment or disgrace. 

The Etruscans are one of the first societies to flaunt open marriages. They very well may have originated the orgy; wife sharing/swapping, as well as the other way around,  was a custom to them. The women not only accepted many men onto their couches, they raised any child that resulted out of their encounters, whether they could identify the biological father or not.

This custom would later come to be criticized by the following Egyptian and Roman sex mongrels.

Many other cultures would simply bestow the title of goddess upon their women, and commission a stone carver to produce an image worthy of her.

One of the most notable finds to date is a statuette of a possible goddess of fertility that dates back nine thousand years. (Sorry Young Earth Creationist EBH.)

The find was in an ancient Turkish settlement called Çatalhöyük. The settlement is believed to have existed for longer than a millennium.

Now, having said all that, let’s delve into what many regard as an exercise in futility, what still others refer to as absolute nonsense, and at least one news commentator calls total bullshit; that social practice that has perpetrated more harm than good, more deception and lies than a presidential campaign, more financial ruin, more deaths, murders and suicides, as well as murder-suicides, that little something known as marriage.

By it’s most simplest and basic definition, marriage is an mutually agreed to domestic, and very often a financially beneficial union between two EBHs, female-male, female- female, male-male, and oddly enough, female-corpse (yes, I’m serious).

From that, every culture added their own spin, restrictions, requirements, and fees. The only commonality across the rock regarding marriages, from the most basic ho-hum no certificate common law marriage, to the more complex polygamy what-you-buy-one-you-better-buy-all arrangements, all were, at the base root, designed to advantage the male EBH. (Oh, you’ll hear some contrary arguments to this, but all moot.)

Allow me to expound.

In the beginning, there was the Patriarchal Social Experiment gone horribly wrong. Quite frankly, EBH’s grandest bone-head move ever. And while we will revisit this social catastrophe in detail in the last installment of this series, suffice it, for now, to be said that male EBH had declared himself the indisputable King; no, scratch that, EBH had arrogantly proclaimed himself God on Earth.

And so, because he was now a God, he commanded not only female EBH, but even every other lesser EBH (essentially everybody else).

A female EBH, regardless of status, rich, poor, slave, wife of the God, was subjugated and literally at the mercy of her man.

This incidentally, is still the case on much of the rock today.

For this reason, female EBH could be, by her father, husband, owner, given away, traded away, sold, enslaved, prostituted out, or simply killed.

Now, I know what you are thinking, there had to be laws protecting the females; and yes, there were. Recall I stated there were primitive cultures that held woman up in the highest esteem, as Goddesses, but, and this is going to sound odd, 99.9% of that went away with the first true civilization formed.

That first true civilization, at least the title, went to Mesopotamia, which is recorded as having come on line at the end of the last Ice Age, about 10000 B.C.E.

The first recognized written laws that provided for female EBH came out of this so called first civilization, in the form of  The Codes of Hammurabi, penned in 1772 (Babylon) B.C.E.

While female was provided a measure of protection under Emperor Hammurabi’s Codes of Law, sadly, she also began her downward spiral under him. A downward spiral that would find her in the proverbial pits of Hell; a downward spiral she is still desperately trying to recover from today.

So, the question arises, was the early honoring of the female EBH, permitting her extraordinary privileges, extraordinary freedoms, something the primitive EBH societies had come up with on their own, or was this behavior more subconscious encoding surfacing?

Undeniably, the EBH female was an integral element in developing EBH society; and, in many instances her skills and talents over shadowed that of the brute  male.

In addition to, and in conjunction with her fertility status, as the child bearer, she was regarded as the true and only source of lineage, and rightfully so. Again, the domestic partner was not always necessarily the sire of the child. 

Had she enjoyed that level of stature prior to finding herself Earthbound?

Within the tribes, she acquired education, held public office at all levels, served as a jurist, was a successful proprietor and negotiator of business, and a land owner in equal standing with the male.

If her domestic relationship with her male partner dissolved, she was entitled to, and received her fair share of the couple’s joint holdings, as was right and just.

Because of this recognition, this acknowledgment and acceptance of gender equality, societies, tribes, alliances flourished in productivity, growth, and stature.

Global EBH was functioning at one hundred percent efficiency; both male and female actively engaged across the board, in every aspect of life. Neither gender was ruling over, undermining, exploiting the other.

All seemed to be going great on the tiny rock. 

But, for some reason male EBH was not content. Not at  all content.

The Disillusioned Earthbound Human: A Tragedy  (Part I: “In the beginning…”)

This is the first part of what I hope is a mind tingling, thought provoking, fact based series built from a multitude of academic papers, science documentaries, and historical records. This series is intended to serve as, not only a stand alone Mini-Series, but also as a draft of what will eventually evolved into a greater work to be published later this year. (Of course, it will be evolving under continual revising and editing.)
The goals and objectives for this effort are to produce short, engaging, entertaining, yet educational, historically correct pieces, written at a level early readers, ESL, in fact, emerging readers of any age can manage. If I can reach those readers, I know I can reach all readers with this enlightening account of Earthbound human’s (EBH) plight on his third rock from the Sun.

I, of course, being the consummate existentialist, offer a slightly different (and I believe lighter) perspective than the dry, rules and guidelines state textbook writers are mandated to take. And, while I certainly do not expect to alter the predestined, ultimate conclusion to the story of EBH, I do hope to instill in many of those who read a better understanding of their world.

In my quest to capture, engage, and retain young, busy thinkers, I exclude what I consider extraneous, commonly understood and accepted trivia, and focus on pivotal, life changing events. As I do not write to frighten or shock the reader, I address the reader more as a conversationalist, rather than a lecturer. While, obviously, I am an EBH, I offer my information through the eyes of a detached, neutral observer.

Another goal and objective I hope to achieve is to entice and motivate the reader to want to know more, to want to learn more, perhaps, to verify what I offer as truths and facts. Not wanting to produce an academic paper per se, that is, a page of text peppered with distracting footnotes and/or in text citations, I opt to provide a plethora of resources, via a Works Cited addendum, for the reader to explore and browse through.

Again, in hope of capturing the young reader, my conversational format could be construed as something of a bedtime story, albeit a bedtime story that could be crudely aligned with the classic Shakespearean tragedy, that is to say there are kingdoms, warriors, damsels in distress, alleged witches, and plenty of demons. And, as in many Shakespearean tales, no one survives, there are no true heroes, the women are degraded and exploited, lies and deception are at every turn, with greed and self-glorification being the very foundation of the story.

But the sad truth is, this is not a fictional tale at all. 

This is an actual tragedy being played out in real time, day in and day out. Ongoing. Non-stop. Undeniable by anyone. Inescapable by no one. This is a depiction of life on planet Earth. It is the story of what man, EBH, has evolved to.

One key point I try to impress on readers is simply, if EBH was not consumed, obsessed with one senseless issue, his present day world would be a totally different place; but this obsession of his was gripping, I suspect, driven more out of fear than curiosity.

For however EBH projects himself to his public, whatever he may claim to be as an entity, beneath the false image, a shiny facade, for EBH then, as he is now, is but a frightened, insecure, paranoid, speck of matter, consumed by an inherent, unshakeable, bone chilling fear of the unknown.

At the root of this gripping fear, is his obsession with his very origin. Simply stated, EBH does not know how he came to be on his rock; it is essentially the human version of the age old question: What came first? The chicken or the egg? This single conundrum will find him topsy turvy and eventually in a dead stick, spiraling tailspin. A tailspin he may never recover from.

So driven is he about learning where he came from, why he is here, on this floating space rock, who placed him on this rock, his inability to control his own mind does him in.

Instead of accepting reality, he allows his mind to conjure up, fabricate, create delusional scenarios of his coming to be Earthbound. 

The tragedy then is, despite possessing the capacity to grasp reality, despite possessing the ability to rationalize his situation and understand his origin was inconsequential, at the very least, a priority to his existence.

For the facts, the truths, the sequence of events, the interventions of whoever, whatever, which led to, not only his, but all creatures coming to co-exist on Earth, whether it involved a magical, mystical  glorious creator of all things great and small, whether it involved a life form creating celestial big bang, whether it involved the biological evolution of a single celled organism that first threaded water, then walked ashore, or whether it involved a maniacal space traveler named Scotty, knowledgeable in transporter technology. That information, needless to say, has never been, is not now, nor will ever be accessible/available to an EBH that, instead of exhibiting rational thought, responsibility, some measure of level headedness, presented only as an undisciplined, reckless, irresponsible simpleton.

 A quick reflection on this creature, this Earthbound humanoid curiosity. 

EBH is but one of many, many interesting creatures, lifeforms calling this floating space rock home. And while it is generally acknowledged that he possesses the ability to reason, it is also generally accepted that he tends to grossly misuse that skill, and in many instances, not use it at all.

Also, while he is only one of an unknown number of species that benefits from the ability to “think,” he favors an affinity towards using creativity and imagination, both surreal and illogical processes, almost to a fault.

Not much else is known about his existence at all, other than he may or may not be the only Earthbound creature who possesses an independent, personalized, individualized conscious, what he has come to call a soul.

Important note, the EBH fancies himself as the sole reigning, master of his floating rock, but  only because no other humanoid lifeform(s) has/have presented to prove him hopelessly wrong, or challenge his declaration of supremacy (to date, that is).

This is interesting because the EBH is one of the most physically, emotionally, biologically, and chemically sensitive, and therefore fragile, creatures on his rock. Millions upon millions of EBHs terminate annually due to physical trauma, a myriad of diseases and physiological disorders, and sheer self-destruction through a myriad of ingenious methods including ingestion, injection, and inhalation of life ending substances. Millions upon millions more are not terminated, but permanently disabled, rendered useless to society. 

But the most fascinating and prevalent method of terminating millions of EBHs is with high velocity muskets. These pop guns project a metal ball that tears through human flesh like it was paper, splintering bones, and damaging major, life sustaining internal organs.

EBH on EBH violence.

And so, it’s with this brief introduction that I hope to offer you a thought provoking break from drinking establishments, iron man work out sessions, funny cat videos. I trust, as loyal and dedicated “friends,” colleagues, family, that you’ll not only read, but share my words with your connections and circles. Remember, we all enjoy different tastes;  what may not be your cup of tea, just may be honey to another. Each new posting will offer an aggressive prospective of this suffering, disillusioned, misguided creature. Please stay with me.

The Unification of Global Societies 

Okay. Here’s the official DhesBar Publications take on all this Russian/U.S. cyber war hacking controversy.

 First, understand that I arrive at conclusions from the perspective of one who has stood on the front lines, in the Western Pacific, the Mediterrean, and on the shores of Japan, eyes fixed towards the Koreas. I do not now, nor have I ever relied on a talking head from Fox, CNN, ABC, etcetera, for my information, or untrustworthy propaganda. Therefore, I hope you will find this entry not only issue appropriate, but thought provoking as well. I strive not to spew out rehashed, canned news releases/opinions like some burned out, shamed newscasters do; I try to instill a sense of involvement and even ownership on the part of my reader. For what happens globally is not “their” problem, it’s “our” problem as well.

So, consider first and foremost that we, every single one of us is now and forever will be Earth bound humans. No matter our so called races, cultures, ethnicities, no matter our bordered country of origin, abstract and fluid as those borders are, we the people are (presently) nothing more than expendable pawns, driven, pitted against one another by power crazed, greedy, often unqualified “world leaders,” many of those self appointed. These political machines clash in deadly, costly, senseless, seemingly never ending  territorial struggles in sole quest of more personal wealth, fame, notoriety, more oil, more gold, more real estate. The names of the countries actively jockeying for global supermacy change with the tides, but presently the top three are Russia, China, and the United States. Engaged in a pseudo conflict, alledgedly over concern of the Syrian people, the Russian and U.S. governments have collectively, essentially leveled cities and towns, not only murdering untold numbers of innocents, but driving millions more people into chaos. All the while, the citizens of both the U.S. and Russia clamor over deterioating condition in their respective countries, both in terms of failing infrastructures (like collapsing freeway bridges), and social/economic conditions (like healthcare and jobs). This will remain to be the worsening global situation as long as citizens, of all nations, tolerate such inept, irresponsible leadership. 

The alternative is clear; the time has come for the inevitable unification of all Earthbound societies. Yes, world peace is achievable; there can be an end to constant fighting and warring, the massacre of millions, the displacement of millions, the creation of wastelands where cities once stood. You see, where a handful of self focused world leaders fail, millions of strong, solidly bonded citizens can succeed. The survival of our global societies then, falls on the societies themselves. And it falls on the peoples, the citizens of the top nations to initiate this unification process. Without the support of the masses, out of control leaders are rendered powerless. Weapons of dispicable destruction will be lowered, and tools of global cooperation raised. Hatreds based on, founded on ignorance and false, subjugating, hypocritical   mythological doctrines and insanity must cease;  acceptance of the fact that we are all Earthbound brothers and sisters, trusted stewards of this planet must take hold. 

Yes, the hands of the few can level a city, but it is the minds, the hands, the ideas, the love and spirit  of cooperation on the part of millions that will ultimately provide our decendents peace and prosperity. We the global people are all we have, if we fail, then we are doomed, and we are doomed by our own complacency, not the hands of any lunatic.

A supportive anectdote to the above. In the summer of 1975, I, and two shipmates, wandered the streets of Hong Kong. We made our way into a cozy little drinking establishment that was alive with familiar (American) music and plenty of laughter. On reaching the bar, we were greeded warmly by the barkeep, a stout man who also sported raised eyebrows at our presence. We noticed we were also drawing a few glances from the partying clientel. The barkeep politely inform us that we were in the company of predominantly Russian sailors. But, we were not asked to leave; we were not denied service. We were simply advised. On glancing once again towards the partying group, one of the Russian sailors raised his glass in respectful salute. I will not divulge the rest of this story other than to say we stayed and enjoyed a fun, enlightening evening. 

You see, people are people; all have dreams, all have families, all seek peace and prosperity. Not only continued prosperity for the 1%, but prosperity for all citizens. Personally? I could give a shit what was in HRCs emails. All I know is I didn’t read a single one, and I’m pretty sure most busy voters didn’t either. Americans voted for DT out of frustration and anger with the do nothing, accomplish nothing, improve nothing Washington estabishment, not because anything Valdemier did, said, or hacked. So, I’m pleading with you to wake up to the truth. Slap your own consciousness around and stop believing the deceptions. We need citizens, not chattel. Join your global brothers and sisters and reclaim your world.

The Elusive Woman’s Vote? Easy!

I curiously listen to the chatter as to who is “earning” the woman’s vote. Personally? I don’t see the issue. The candidate that is truly and sincerely seeking the woman’s vote is the one who is strong enough to openly, publicly, during a debate or Townhall gathering, on the street corner of any city in any state, Blue or Red, stand and loudly, without reservation, proclaim the long debunk Patriarchal Social System dead and buried, loudly, openly and publicly, without reservation, stand and proclaim the misogynistic church’s influence over our government dead, stand and loudly, openly and publicly, without reservation, proclaim all women emqancipated, equal under the Constitution of this country, especially under the 14th Amendment. In “freeing” women, in liberating over half of the American workforce from senseless subjugation and repression, they can then, and only then, proclaim themselves as pro-woman. Until that happens, they’re just playing centuries old political games: appease her, compliment her, use her, then push her aside. So, let’s see  which candidate has the courage to stand up against the misogynistic right, the courage to stand tall for the the American woman.q

An Open Apology to Millennials

Dear Millennials,
First, please accept a truly sincere and heart felt apology, an apology offered on behalf of all teachers who had opportunity (responsibility?) to instill upon you truths and factual information regarding this society we were tasked with preparing you for, to not only exist within, but assume leadership of. We all had opportunity, but so many of us failed you by feeding you instead, false, distorted, exaggerated, and far too often, straight out lies. We denied you the education that would have, should have sent you forth fully informed, totally aware, with the foundational knowledgeable every American requires, is entitled to. Had we provided you this knowledge, you would have left us with a better understanding of not only the opportunities and challenges, but dangers and social obstacles you are surely encountering today. Young ladies, you especially were duped. Sadly, you were simply prepared for a life of servitude to a Master, whether that be a corporate master, or domestic master, or both. You see, America’s educational system is designed to produce a particular citizen. That’s why it didn’t matter that some of your classmates could not read very well, if at all, on graduation; or, if they could  perform basic math. As long as they put in the seat time, and you know exactly what I’m talking about, and “earned” their credits; as long as they received a diploma, worthless that it was, they were sufficiently prepared to enter the all important work force. Our public education system excels only at producing laborers for corporate giants. What I’m trying to explain is, instead of serving you, instead of ensuring your future through providing you a sound, meaningful education, we served a political/corporate  establishment that dictates you be prepared for continued social manipulation and continued subjugation; for in being such, you assure their future. And today, in part due to our failure, you face decades of continued servitude to that corporate establishment, and continued subjugation under that government. Now, before moving on, I will interject this, while we were the teachers of record, we were only in compliance with state mandated curricula, and in many cases federal mandates. This is not an excuse for our failure, only a statement of fact. Still, and despite the compliance issue, we could have interjected enough to properly and effectively guide and direct you. We, cannot shirk the blame that is ours to bear; we need to acknowledge and accept our part in the injustice done each and every one of you. Well, let me restate part of that; you do in fact face continued servitude to corporate giants, but you don’t have to endure it. You see, you only have to say enough is enough to the current social structure, where the top 1% controls you. And, you can enough is enough to the current social structure that clings to the belief that man is in charge. Incidentally, the latter is known as the Patriarchal Social System, just one of those critical points we failed to teach you about, at least properly. You can say enough is enough to all, and say yes to a new social order that acknowledges this country as a multicultural nation, affording each of those cultures respect, acknowledges that gender equally is not negotiable, especially when it pertains to employment and pay and personal health. A new social order under which all citizens are protected under our Constitution. Ah, the Constitution! Another important point not properly and thoroughly covered in class. You see, the Constitution when written, did not include slaves; maybe your Government teacher touched on that point, but probably didn’t mention that, at that point in time, women were considered slaves, both by government and the church. That’s why today women are not entitled to equal pay; that’s why today, women are not included under the Constitution, especially the 14th Amendment. That’s why today, a woman is  still subjugated, humiliated, degraded, mutilated and murdered, by her men, by her government, and by her clerics. You see, the church calls women (yes, calls, present tense) the very gateway to hell; a thing God does not, will never acknowledge. Now, before you take those words to heart, please listen to this. The men who wrote those, and many, many like derogatory comments about women, historically, and continue to write them today, were/are frustrated, misogynists. Kooks. Sociopaths. Delusional creeps. So, their  comments, all of them, are of course meaningless. Sadly, and here’s where the danger factor comes in, other psychopaths do listen and believe these words. These are the men, the politicians, the clerics who hurt women, degrade and humiliate women, who abuse, beat, and murder women. I keep including politicians, and I will continue to include them throughout this letter, only because politicians (at least far to many of them) are in bed with the clerics as far as subjugating and demoralizing women. It’s the politicians who write and pass the legislation that denies women human and civil rights. It’s the politicians who wrote the legislation that dictated what size stick a man could beat women with, and where he could place his blows. And while,  under the state, she is somewhat protected today, not liberated, not emancipated, still not an equal to man, still not included under the Constitution, only somewhat protected, the church has not changed it’s position on women at all. As far as the church is concerned, women today are still, and always will be the witch, the ungodly beast that should not be allowed to even live. A logical question you may be asking right now is, “Why? Why are women regarded with such hatred?” And to that question I have no answer. All I can offer is only a  plausible guess. Man fears woman. He learned long ago that she was his superior, both genetically and intellectually. So, he dominates her, controls her the only way he knows how, through physical intimidation, acts of violence, and torture and murder. As for politicians? They continue to subjugate her through mounds of legislation. But there is something else. Probably the most concerning and telling fact as to woman’s true place in this sophisticated, 21st Century society. You see, today, in this “land of the free, home of the brave,” “one nation under God,” the world’s most powerful nation, the marketing of women, yes, the marketing, the buying and selling of women is a billion dollar industry. In fact, as you read these words, and untold number of young women, Millennials, like yourself, are being “shipped” across the country, freighted on our highways and byways right along with your favorite soft drinks and vegetables. I say women, but almost half of the cargo are only girls, children, and since none of these women are recyclable, then they are disposal. Consider this well known fact; women were ordered, months ago, per size, color, ethnicity, and yes, age, to fulfill the anticipated demand in Santa Clara, California, the city that hosted Super Bowl 50.  I’m sure you remember this lesson from your economics class, the infamous supply and demand rule of economics? And believe me, all requests were be filled, regardless of age. How is this possible? Gain, simple economics. Because the dollar is more powerful than any law, and any rule pertaining to humanity. Nothing is denied, if the price is right. In that the trafficking of women and children for sexual purposes is a billion dollar industry, greedy, unscrupulous, slime bag politicians see nothing but green when it comes to selling even there own wives and daughters. The color green even corrupts those sworn to “protect and serve.” After all, they’re just women. So, now you may be asking, “Is there a cure for this ailing social system? Can this cesspool of corruption and decadence be cleaned up?” Well, as a matter of fact, that question actually brings us to the whole point of this letter; yes! There is a very real, very plausible solution to our sick and decaying country. And that solution is you! Yup, that’s right, after telling you we jipped you out of an education, after telling you we blinded you from the truth, after telling you we essentially set you up like a pawn in a chess game, I’m now going to tell you it’s up to you to save the country. Or at least initiate the save. And, before you roll your eyes (remember, I had you in class), it just so happens you have a launch pad to establish yourselves as the force to be contended with, the future for this country. As it happens, there is in the formative stage, a social revolution intended to counter the above mentioned social fiasco; a social revolution that many Millennials are embracing as their own. This is a sociopolitical movement, designed to purge the sickness that is the Patriarchal Social System, purge the archaic, misogynistic church doctrines from our governments, purge the control and dominance of the few over the multitude. And while this revolution has been declared by one of the presidential candidates, Millennials are universal, and could/should carry this revolution into the halls of every political party. Personally? I would love to see you establish a totally new, unique party. Again, there is still much danger among the wicked, hopelessly corrupt established parties. You have strong, sharp minds, you have compassion, and you have consciousness. Investigate. Deliberate. Formulate. Learn. But more importantly unite. Make your decisions based on facts, not folklore. I say learn (you should have at least been told learning was a lifetime endeavor), and by that I mean, learn from our despicable past. Learn what is not only good for you, but what’s good for your fellow man, all of them, not only a select few. Learn what’s good for the future of your country. Many of today’s politicians are lost. Others are only blinded by the prospect of power and money. Some are virtually still living in what might as well be the Dark Ages, the Stone-Age; their thinking is not conducive to Millennials and the generations to follow you. This is your country, seize it. So, do you understand your importance now? Do you understand your worth? Can you comprehend your role, your power? You need to stand up in unison and let the boom of your collective voices shake the halls of Congress. Rattle the White House. No one can deny you any longer; this is your time, and, I for one will be standing proud, watching you.

Pornography and the American Women and Child, Part 4 in a Series

porn3I am going to open this post with a very clear, direct statement that could be argued, will be argued, but no argument would/will stand against the evidence and supporting documentation behind it.

Pornography is not now, never has been, never will be entertainment. Pornography is not, by any stretch of the imagination, artistic expression. Pornography is blatant, exploitation, degradation, humiliation, and criminal violation of women that communicates a loud, menacing, continuous message to all women, globally. A message of hate. Any person who is presently engaged in its production, or acting as an accessory to its production through financial contributions/investment, or by legislative support, political sanctions, needs to be prosecuted.

The very idea that the Federal Government, your legislators, your Congressmen, your Senators, your sitting President, your Supreme Court Justices, all or most with wives and daughters of their own, would protect and defend pornographers under the articles of our Constitution, while unconscionably not only denying, but persecuting women under that same document is beyond comprehension.

This turning of their proverbial backs to American women, the selling of American women for monetary gain, the heartless sacrifice of more than half of the population of this country, including children, only emphasizes the sad truth regarding the direction this country is taking, in fact has been on for far to long.

That people, at any level, would participate in this kind of barbarous activity, is mind-boggling.

Well, beyond comprehension that is unless you consider that pornography is a 10 billion plus business, in this country; and the trafficking of women for sexual purposes is reported to gross up to 32 billion globally. Incidentally, pornographers have a lobby in the hollow halls of Congress, and billions of dollars can buy a lot of influence. And Joe the Plumber, and everyone else will soon be able to trade in the flesh of women via Wall Street (many believe this is happening now).

Money aside, let’s talk about the men involved.

The producers, the directors, even those on the sidelines acting as accessories, the politicians, the investors, those concerned only with the money factor, are not necessarily misogynist; these men love women and the money they make for them. Greed and profits at any cost to anyone, and the lost of anything, like self-respect, is just business.

But, in order to make that oh so desired and precious dollar, these people need misogynist to engage the women in what we’ll call a convincing and attracting way.

I am going to explain something before moving on, something that many of our young have either never been taught, considering this kind of education comes from the streets and not from parents, but nonetheless something that is essential to their health and well being.

Sexual intercourse, copulation, between a man and a woman, is a natural act. The male body is designed to engage with the female body to allow procreation; procreation, of course, is the continuation of life, humanity. However, as with so many, many other natural events, man has managed to corrupt even this natural event into something from which to benefit from financially.

What’s even more amazing (alarming? scary?) is the number of human beings, upright on two feet, walking, functioning (at least physically) human beings who, for whatever reason, not only watch, but pay to watch a natural act performed.

This single disturbing fact alone speaks volumes as to the emotional stability/instability, the psychological fragility, the personal insecurity and lack of self respect, lack of integrity, and the total corruptibility of American men.

I have conducted extensive research and data gathering in addressing violence against women; a considerable amount of that data supports/alludes to man’s overall conditioning, under the Patriarchal System, to control and dominate women, even if in a docile relationship. Other men, those who subscribe to hardcore, extreme pornography suffer from concerning types of emotional disturbance and/or psychosis. The later issues manifest as a result of child abuse, child neglect, abandonment, rape/molestation, TBI, and a myriad of other physical, emotional traumatic episodes.

But a significant number of porn watchers are pegged as closet homosexuals. These men are restrained, repressed, denied by such social stigmas as homo-hatred, homo-phobics, homo-bashers. They exist in a life of fear and denial. Therefore, they are forced to remain in their closets, denied the lifestyle they crave, the lifestyle they know exist for them to protect a more sociably acceptable persona; worse, they are forced to sleep with a woman they actually despise and hate to touch.

These men don’t watch porn because the woman is tall, curvy and endowed; these men don’t watch porn because the woman smiles up to him with that “I want you, come hither” gleam in her eye. They watch porn to watch the man perform.

It has long been reported that porn today is produced for the homosexual man. Consider that an increasing amount of porn no longer even features the vagina in the starring role, rather penetration is anally. Consider that an increasing amount of porn today involves multiple men and one female, the classic gang bang. The other men, while awaiting their turn to engage the woman, stand posing, masturbating to the delight of the homosexual man.

A homosexual man can be caught with this porn by his wife; he can invite his friends and coworkers to watch with him. There is a woman in the mix. But there’s more.

There is a growing trend in pornography, a highly concerning trend that only reinforces my assertion that Earthbound man, archaic man, a being that apparently cannot, for whatever reason(s), whether they be psychological in nature, indicate genetic corruption, hint at evolutionary stagnation, or simply be a matter of his brain having reached its maximum capacity to process data logically, whatever the reason, it’s causing man to regress, not advance.

There is an insurmountable amount of evidence to this claim, which will be raised in coming posts, but for now, I only want to address man’s growing fascination with physical dominance and brutality. When displaying this towards his fellow man, it results in death, and is almost always associated with the attainment of money, territory, or power. When he unleashes this violence against women, it is usually associated with personal gratification and pleasure.

If you doubt this is happening, simply watch the news. And I’m not only speaking of the events of the Middle East and Europe, with the horrific accounts of rapes and sexual assaults;wars have historically found women as prizes and trophy. I’m also speaking of the escalating number of heinous acts of violence and human degradation right here on American streets.

How is this manifesting in porn? There has been always been that element of violence in pornography. Again, to appease, satisfy, and hold those true misogynist and women hating, frustrated homosexuals, porn long ago slipped away from the comfortable Avocado green couches and shag carpeting of the 1960s and entered the realm of extreme gang bangs, public humiliation, and mock rapes of school girls. Today, it’s estimated that roughly 90% of porn involves some form of violence directed towards the woman, and when I say violence, I mean out and out physical torture and brutality that defies justification (and lack of prosecution).

To appease even the hardest of the hard misogynist, Snuff films are produced in which the woman is depicted as not only a horrendous torture victim, but a murder victim as well.

This negates Merriam-Webster’s definition of porn: movies, pictures, magazines, etc., that show or describe naked people or sex in a very open and direct way in order to cause sexual excitement. The latest trend adopted by pornographers involves the no holds barred, brutal physical punishment of the woman that, again, defys it’s protection under the even most basic laws of this alleged in God we trust, Jesus loving land of hypocrites and woman haters.

The latest trend in sexual excitement and stimulation is a little something referred to in the porn industry as the Donkey Punch.

The Donkey Punch is the latest catch phrase used when a woman is being physically, brutally, sexually assaulted on film for the world to enjoy. In the course of enduring, essentially, sodomy, the woman, the female actress, is taking punches to the back of the head, brutal, hard, closed fist punches; she is taking punches to her legs, her torso; she is being pulled around by her hair, spat on, gagged with fingers, and kicked.

Now, if produced in a Chatsworth studio, America’s celebrated porn capitol, the actress may stop the assault if the beating becomes excessive; but, the true problems of pornography evolve when street pornographers produce truly extreme films.

These are not professional producers. These are not professional actresses. These are the human traffickers and these are the millions of missing children of this country.

One critic, an arm chair connoisseur, on watching one of these basement productions, described it as watching a street beat down mixed in with sex. He describes the girl as nothing more than a punching bag, taking brutal hits to the head, body-blows and plenty of facial slapping. This critic’s favorite part of the film? When the male took the woman’s hand and began to beat her with her own fist.

In another case, a 15 year old high school girl was brutally gang raped by three boys and one man for over two hours. The rapist violated her with objects and physically beat her during those two hours. How does this story fit? The gang rape took place at a school dance, on an outdoor bench and watched by some twenty people. Live porn. The girl was left, unconscious, kicked under the bench to die alone.

And so, I’ll close this post by restating my opening statement followed by a quote by one of the churches most celebrated and prolific writers of doctrines and scriptures.

Pornography is not now, never has been, never will be entertainment. Pornography is not, by any stretch of the imagination, artistic expression. Pornography is blatant, exploitation, degradation, humiliation, and criminal violation of women that communicates a loud, menacing, continuous message to all women, globally. A message of hate; and our legislators sanction and protect it, benefit from it monetarily.

Tertullian, described women this way: “I,1,2 God’s judgment on this sex [that is women] lives on in our age; the guilt necessarily lives on as well. You are the Devil’s gateway; you are the unsealer of that tree; you are the first foresaker of the divine law; you are the one who persuaded him whom the Devil was not brave enough to approach; you so lightly crushed the image of God, the man Adam; because of your punishment, that is, death, even the Son of God had to die. And you think to adorn yourself beyond your “tunics of skins”? (CSEL 70.59 as cited in ClarkWomen in the Early Church 39)

Once more, thank you for reading, and I hope you come back for the 5th post in this series in which I will share a short excerpt from an upcoming release. It will be definitively define Genesis and creationism.
