The Absence of Elegance

Elegance is usually confused with superficiality, fashion, lack of depth. This is a serious mistake: human beings need to have elegance in their actions and in their posture because this word is synonymous with good taste, amiability, equilibrium and harmony.  ~ Paulo Coelho

Elegance, taste, class – some have it, and of course know it, but the only way one would know of their tastefulness is to either listen to them or look at them – those with elegance, class and taste don’t have to advertise it. At the other end – the classless, the tasteless, the administrators of ugliness and putridness – one can see them coming from miles away, for it’s a never ending avalanche of modern day sickness that preludes all they do.

FB asks Users if it Should Allow Pedophiles to Ask Kids for Sexual Pictures – via antimedia.com

In a move that’s baffling at best and rather appalling at worst, Facebook has been busted asking users if they think it’s alright for adults to solicit “sexual pictures” from minors on its platform. While this may sound ridiculous on the surface — because it is — nevertheless, it happened.

On Sunday, the social media behemoth sent surveys out to a group of its users with questions on the issue of child grooming, the process of adults befriending children for the purposes of sexual abuse or other nefarious ends like trafficking and prostitution.

Of course, you won’t hear anything about this via the mainstream media here in the States.  They have a war in mind with Russia, Iran, North Korea, Syria, or any other country in their crosshairs, and goddamn it – they want to get it on so that we can end millions of more innocent lives and enrich the stockholders and executives of military industrial complex conglomerates.

I have children, grandchildren, wife, family, loved ones whom I cherish and want a better future for (as all of you do as well). A better future won’t happen under the current system. It won’t happen when we continue to give our attention, our hard-earned dollars, our thoughts to an absolutely corrupt, ugly, lying, hypocritical group of shysters, charlatans and degenerates who advance an agenda that only they profit from.

A future free of the absolute daily insanity we’re bombarded with won’t happen with more wars, more election rigging originating from the two party system, that like the python with it’s victim wrapped in its grasp, won’t release it.  A future free from the sanctimonious media personalities telling you how to live your life, what to think, what to do, what products to buy – that you must believe their bullshit which they haven’t a thought of following personally… it won’t end until you stop listening to them.

If you’ve had the passing or even bothersome thought that won’t leave you that tells you, ‘this isn’t the way it should be’, you have assessed correctly. It shouldn’t be the way it is.  But we’ve allowed it be so by our silence.

“Your silence gives consent.” Plato

Any asshole who promises utopia if you vote for them is full of the choicest guano, and continuing to believe that life will become better if they are elected, or if we continue to believe their depressing rot of what they think life should be, leads one back to this little gem…

We each recognize bullshit when we’re being bullshitted. But we give a pass to media talking heads, Hollywood hypocrites, late night talk show idiots and government and corporate propagandists when they straight out give us a heap of excrement – each and every day.

Disengage from their insanity and seek beauty and truth, and never be afraid to create elegance, taste and class.  For that is what they who currently control the modern day horseshit, fear most.

It is truth, beauty, elegance and tastefulness which will lead to our earthly salvation.

From a classical music composer who was “self-taught” (see – you too can create beauty)  – one of the most elegant pieces of music ever written.
