Stop feeding the Beast.

The issue with the Beast is that we have never seen it.

But we know it’s there, and we know it must look as gorgeous as Scarlett, and not like any of the images below.

The Beast must be appealing. It’s the only way for it to attract you to its jaws.

At the beginning of times, humans used to blame it on Nature, like when some day a group were crossing the woods and bumped into a giant pile of shit. Of course in the back of their minds they knew it couldn’t be an act of Nature, but the truth was so unbearable, so horrid, that it was way preferrable to avoid the notion that a being of such a size, was real and alive.

From time to time, towns were destroyed, countries invaded and, of course, people devoured by the Beast. But as long as it wasn’t you …  Now, by the end 2012 (in the vespers of the End of the World), we know it. We know it does exist (if we even believe in God, how couldn’t us accept there is a power in this world that sends billions of people to starvation and death).

We know we must fight it.

We are just putting the battle off.

Why is that?

I don’t think anymore it’s because we are denying the truth, or we are blind. I’d rather think that we are making our minds, we are assessing the risks, gathering the wisdom (like the proverb says), to tell things we can change from those we can not. No one sensible goes to a battle without a strategy, some tactics and some chances to win.

The Beast has advantage. It has been dominating people for ages, so it knows how it goes.

Thousands of years ago, mankind was disconnected. When a small town was invaded in any part of the world, it meant anything to the rest of the world. Five hundred years ago, since old Empires became global, a strict control was applied on issues of State and politics. And the populace had no other options than to obey. Nowadays, we have the information, we have the means to communicate, to organize ourselves, and most important, to SURVIVE.

We just have to make a decision of how, when, and where, and make it happen.

For the first time in History, Freedom will have to be conquered by all of us, not “some”, nor “many”, or “almost all”: ALL OF US.

There’s no other way out.

Societies will have to be inclusive and emphatic, or will end up being a mere reflection of any grotty corporation’s structure.

So, where do we start?

It’s not that difficult. Before doing anything else, consider this:

Stop feeding the beast

Cut the flow. Let it know you are not as vulnerable as you were, because you took control on your own life.

This translates in two simple actions:

  • stop voting (The Beast is sustained on you being fully accountable for the situation, you have been in collusion with it, whether you knew it or not)
  • stop consuming senselessly (It also needs desperately your compulsive spending, in order to keep the circle/cycle running)

Changes in our societies, can no longer be conceived as “fate”. To their “designed crisis” we must respond with organized change.

But believe me only in this:

You don’t have to believe me. Just believe in yourself.

  2. Most folks are too frightened or lazy to really stop feeding the beast. We’re both engineers, and after 30 years of treading water and being used as a commodity, we’ve gone Galt. It’s a lot of work to learn to be self-sufficient at 50 – better be in good shape. But we’ve forgotten that hard, honest work is actually the most healthy way… Fancy food and vacations are only worth so much. The comfortable life has lulled everyone into compliance.

    • Hi Jen,
      Many thanks for taking your time to read and comment.
      Not sure if my vision is that extreme as “self-sufficient”, but surely it’s about cutting off with superfluous spending. Again, I must admit that shrinking our spending, wories me too, for it will deepen even more the contractive cycle (that is: if we think this crisis is a cycle and not “driven”).
      Pleased to have you here.
