SHROUD OF PERSPECTIVE
The shroud of perspective is a grotesque mask worn to cover the shame in our prejudice...
The meek shall inherit the earth and- Could this mean that I will inherit the earth alone? Yet am I meek? I believe I'm Me, the flip-side to any We in the vicinity of the Holy Word of God, Me, a mere peasant in the game... I am Mark R. Prime, and we, the collective, are in need of this particular unfolding speech, not of my thoughts alone, a just method for giving rise to my own rising as it relates, now get this, to We.
I call that a conundrum, not for me but for we... I am. Now let's get together! I ask because I, as Me, am instructed to. The flip-side ain't so bad, if you understand only too well whom you're dancing with. Ready
One plus One equals One.
The media's use of the word "attack" when it comes to the politicians versus their political opponents is a rather dismal way to frame a democratic process. Dismal and dangerous because we seem to be incorporating it, as if the elections were a criminal act.
It is dangerous for us to become used to the word "attack" being tossed around so nonchalantly, as if we're at war with our fellow citizens.
Come to think of it, the word is trying to or already has become us.
What a tragic shame...
Peace is the way forward, it is not merely a feeling. It is meant to be an ongoing commitment by all of humankind...
