There’s a war coming‘: Marine Corps commandant tells troops to be ready for a ‘big-ass fight’ as US military planners say next conflict could be against Russia or North Korea

In the age of nuclear weapons, this preceding  goes to a paramount oxymoron of European cultural thought:

“I refer to the maxim that is one of the axiomatic norms of cybernetic society: “something ought to be done because it is technically possible to do it.” If it is possible to build nuclear weapons, they must be built even if they might destroy us all. If it is possible to travel to the moon or to the planets, it must be done, even if at the expense of many unfulfilled needs here on earth. This principle means the negation of all humanistic values, but it nevertheless represents a value, maybe the supreme norm of “technotronic” society” –Fromm, Erich, The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness

By the same logic, in the liberal democracies, if you have nukes and rationale can be constructed to use them, e.g. ‘they have them too and they’re not rational [read European mentality] like we are’ you’ve mentally prepared yourselves to use them, because ‘it is technically possible’ to survive them, irrespective of whether you will survive them or not.

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime” -Thomas Paine

Let us, for moment’s contrast sake, then have a look at non-European thinking from a century ago:

“In 1918 Christian missionary A. McG. Beede took Yale graduate Harry Boise to the Standing Rock Sioux and Turtle Mountain Chippewa reservations on separate occasions, where Boise explained scientific ideas to tribal leaders. Beede wrote in his report that both groups immediately understood the concepts without difficulty, saying: “There is no difficulty in leading an old Teton Sioux Indian to understand the ‘scientific attitude’ that the processes that give rise to phenomena may be more and more known by man and may be, to some extent, controlled by man, and that in this way the forces of nature may become a mainspring of progress in the individual and in the human race. The idea of atoms and electrons is easy and pleasing to an old Indian, and he grasps the idea of chemistry.” -Vine Deloria, Evolution, Creationism, and Other Modern Myths

The two tribal groups spokesmen replied to Harry Boise, following discussion among themselves:

”The ’scientific view’ is inadequate to explain … how man is to find and know a road along which he wishes and chooses to make this said progress, unless Manitoo by his spirit, guides the mind of man, keeping human beings just and generous and hospitable” -Rising Sun, Turtle Mountain Chippewa

“The knowledge and use of any or all the powers of the objects on Earth around us, is as liable to lead a man wrong as to lead him right, because it is merely power, with no way of knowing how to use it correctly- except that spirit is with a man’s spirit for the light” -Red Tomahawk, Standing Rock Sioux

Then, in our own 21st Century’s western science, an irreconcilable contradiction of fact is noted:

“The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment” -theoretical physicist Bernard d’Espagnat

In other words, the present day Platonic/Cartesian philosophy or ‘objectivity’ underlying western science and its exploitation of “the knowledge and use of any or all the powers of the objects on Earth around us” is a misapprehension of reality according to experiments carried out by that very same western science. Yet, this is ignored by western science, as if the experiments had never been carried out and the contradiction didn’t exist.

Why? Well, try this next:

“It is the myth of scientific objectivity that allows Europeans [includes European culture established by colonialism, notably USA] to speak for all of us” -Marimba Ani, in her seminal critique of European mentality “Yurugu”

If the myth is culturally indestructible, here is the likely, upcoming fruit of necessarily ignoring the contradiction, to uphold the myth:

“I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all” -General James ‘mad dog’ Mattis

Note the contradiction in General Mattis’ preceding statement, indicating he’s holding several hundreds (or thousands) of kilotons of nuclear explosion(s) behind his back as he approaches his adversary with ‘peace.’ This is result of a culture that is incompatible with its pretensions, a culture of practical (or practicing) hypocrites. Bombing North Korea will easily draw in Russia and China. Altogether aside from Korea, our presently pumping offensive weapons into Ukraine could bring Russia on in a ‘stands alone’ NATO fight.

Now, consider we have 4, four star Marine Corps generals, that is Trump’s Chief of Staff General ‘ass-hat’ Kelly, Trump’s Secretary of Defense General ‘mad-dog’ Mattis, Trump’s Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Dumbford and Trump’s Marine Corps Commandant General ‘big-ass’ Neller at the reins of a USA ‘defense’ establishment… none of which have lifted a finger to clean up the rampant, literal Armageddon believing, hyper-extreme Christian fundamentalists running not only the Pentagon, but every major branch of every American military department. The investigative watchdog group Military Religious Freedom Foundation calls these people “The Christian Taliban.” Meanwhile, you can take in your illegal (constitutionally impermissible) Pentagon Bible study HERE.

“You’re telling me 28 to 34 percent of our military want 7 billion people to die” [believe in literal Armageddon] … “The simple answer is affirmative”

So, other than our politicians’ lies and related media fantasies, what is the main handicap stands in the way of everyday people waking up to this rapidly approaching reality before it is too late? It is probably this one:

“Their judgment was based more upon blind wishing than upon any sound pre-vision; for it is a habit of mankind to entrust to careless hope what they long for, and to use sovereign reason to thrust aside what they do not fancy” -Thucydides

Put into modern terms (western intelligentsia, particularly, appear to fall prey to this)…

“Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief” -Frantz Fannon

This preceding could also called ethnocentric bias, or the European mentality’s cultural narcissism. Now, when the Platonic-Cartesian mentalities are too ? (reader’s choice) socially stupid, uneducated-ignorant, conflicted, distracted, vain, intimidated, biased, or (mostly) culturally incapable of seeing where this is all headed, when there’s 7 billion dead, it’ll be a bit late to sort new reality parameters, you think?

This brings us back to an ‘illiterate savage’ lecturing the Yale science graduate with this precise language…

“The knowledge and use of any or all the powers of the objects on Earth around us, is as liable to lead a man wrong as to lead him right, because it is merely power, with no way of knowing how to use it correctly- except that spirit is with a man’s spirit for the light”

…the thing with this is, the western science still (to this day) continues to believe they are superior, but perhaps even more importantly (just now) is, the western monotheism has utterly failed the last sentence of the preceding (italicized) paragraph, recalling:

Ron’s Conspiracy Theory

It would appear quite possible that groups of people create collective realities seeming unconsciously, and cause via their collective belief, events to take on what would appear to be an ‘unconscious’ but in reality is a ‘super-conscious’ intelligence that is organized, functions as though it were managed by individuals (even when it is not) and the result is, we can read into those events as though they were managed in a sense they actually are not.

This collective ‘meme’ can explain what is called in the biblical sense ‘principalities of darkness’ or that is to say a ‘spirit of evil’ managing events in a sense of both conspiracy and superstition.

There is quite a bit of ‘coincidental incidence’ in our world indicating peoples of the western culture are creating reality quite independent of self-aware thought and, to a rational observer, it could seem almost certainly by design when in fact this is not necessarily the case. Such would explain a belief in Illuminati when in fact it did not exist in any individual self conscious or ego-aware organized form but nevertheless manifest as an observable phenomena of symptoms or consequence derived from a collective super-conscious phenomenon.

A conclusion could  be there is a ‘super awareness’ of the group causes what appear ingenious evils of conspiracy when in fact there is no one individual or group of managers within the group capable of implementing these designs which, nonetheless in actuality, are perceived. To accomplish reality of evil would only require evil ideas as cultural drivers; example given Original Sin and the devastation visited upon our world’s women, the greatest and ongoing holocaust among holocausts.

The natural progression to end result would be, when a large portion of an aggressive society collectively believes in Armageddon as an archetype, all of the necessary players will naturally manifest in a super-conscious organized format empowered to bring it off, where no one individual or group of individuals or players could effect this by individual or personal volition; nevertheless the super-consciousness of the event’s initiating group insures creation of this reality for the collective whole.

Have you looked at the apocalyptic ‘good versus evil’ fables driving our world’s several fundamentalist religions’ reality recently? If cosmology is the effective driver of what appears to be pointed to inevitable catastrophic outcome, better to change fables, you think? Now, just how do you suppose this could be accomplished? As things stand,  we’re all little more than an extinction event waiting to happen. All of us.
