UNARMED: LIFE IN A DISPOSABLE, DISPENSABLE PSYCHO-SOCIAL NARRATIVE
When a person or group-think culture possesses a supremacist superiority complex mindset toward a specific group of people,
When the general American corpus does not cry out for swift justice or due process in the face of factual evidence,
When the predominant American evangelical church leadership’s national conscious exists void of empathetic discourse due to silence and impotent action via partnership,
Then that nation’s conscience is seared and indifferent toward the mandate that humanity has been created in the image and after the likeness of God.
At this point I am in fact a political atheist.
With every fiber of my being I believe that America is no longer a Constitutional Republic but rather a Corporate Fascist Oligarchy. Our political leaders are the puppets, tools, spokespersons for the Powers that Be.
My heart is likened to Habakkuk 1:1-4
The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see.
O Lord, how long shall I cry, and you will not hear. Even cry to you of violence and you will not save.
Why do you show me iniquity and cause me to behold grievance? For spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention.
Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment does never go forth: for the wicked does compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceeds.
IF INIQUITY PRESUPPOSES INEQUITY.
AND INEQUITY SUSTAINS INACCESSIBILITY.
THEN INACCESSIBILITY MAINTAINS INCORRIGIBILITY.
Dunbar taught us
“We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,—
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.
Why should the world be over-wise,
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us, while
We wear the mask.
We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries
To thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile;
But let the world dream otherwise,
We wear the mask!”
How will we live?
