The first veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the first veil and find the world of politics. We will vote, be active and have an opinion. Our opinions are shaped by the physical world around us; we have a tendency to accept that government officials, network media personalities and other “experts” are voices of authority. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the second veil.
Politics is a natural progression upwards, much like Maslow’s heirarchy of needs. Here is a decent link on Maslow.
Given a relatively stable modern life some can progress into he higher realms of caring for and about others by taking an interest in community and politics.
Thing of reality being only lamestream media. Yuck. Oh, I’m getting ahead of myself here, can’t help it as I can’t accept the cognitive dissonance that is lamestream.
Several examples. Joe Lieberman. John McCain siding with Ted Kennedy on the corporate policy of wage supression through immigration. Yes, there are tons of other issues in the immigration debate but basically it boils down to corporate persuit of lower wages, keeping wages low while the “owners” of the company jet around the world in a choice of seven corporate jets.
Nancy Pelosi’s non-impeachment stance, a current hot button issue and I do have to add corporate media’s massive rejection of the 911 truth movement.
Next up is the complete rejection of a topic the “left” should have, could have used to literally crucify the right wing’s flag waving bravado in this “war of terror” crap. That is the entire Bush administration’s continuous high level staff meetings to discuss the three nation union of Mexico, Canada and the US in a common EU style union. Again a corporate profit scam type thing which points to gross retardation, incompetence and galactic light years behind the current curve as Globo-corp is already abandoning China as “the” premier cheap labor source and seeking out places like North Vietnam.
In total the second Satanic veil includes people like Karl Rove and Rush Limbaugh but also those on the left.
Yes it does get confusing, it is supposed to be. One leans against the other forming a sort of Roman arch. The structure which supports elite assholes above all else.
