Sometimes life will imitate a desert.  One will search for miles, redoing the math, tearing down and rebuilding shoddy constructions, monitoring modern reporting for any sign of rain or relief.  Ignorance is soon to become an endangered species, if the Internet comes through the other end of the mean. We must first have accesss to the truth. This will take some convincing. For those who actually possess a truth, to bring it forward is no light undertaking.

I haven’t yet discussed the nature of the commission of the Indigo generations. They step outside the astrologically analyzed spin of each generation’s Pluto, Saturn and Uranus planets. This is repackaged in mass media as something you recognize: The Boomer Generation, The Lost Generation, Gen X, Gen Y or millennials.  Presently coordinating their territory against that of a lion with an endless appetite for the children of men, nature, and misery itself, are the Indigo children.  They carry the truth with them, whether they want to or not.

Indigos are jailbreaking an empire of lies, lead by liars and their dupes. The first, second and fortieth time an Indigo speaks their truth, they are not believed.  They are imperfect emissaries who are immediately gaslighted from the time of their first peep resembling light, truth and integrity. They are people who have made mistakes in life. They are society’s gender or moral deviants. They may have been someone’s victim most of their lives. They are financial reprobates. They have been overcommitted to the wrong direction. They have a history of hypocrisy in corporate or government fealty.  They are vulnerable people impossibly buried by reproach. They are people bound and gagged by achievement, success and family obligations.

If they survive the abuses of power, they make a powerful connection. The truth will be true; whether it is spoken by a donkey, a monkey, a priest or a poltergeist. The truth isn’t a subjective matter.  The truth is a subjective matter for magicians and liars taking you to spin class.

Then something truly groundbreaking happens. They open their mouth for the 41st time.   It finally sounds like something that matches the integrity and strength of their nature. They are a sudden convert to their own understanding by speaking aloud what is condemnable heresy to a liar.  Truth becomes their new master and the master of all who hear it. What remains is the tombstone of dearly beloved lies.

Lies have no permanent authority. They are an invention to protect the perceptions of those who escape into drugged lassitude of power, built on falsehoods.  All social ills come under the sickness of a lie’s polluted inversion. However, all it takes is the persistence and courage of someone who possesses a truth to portray it as medicine to be made well.

The right time and right place arrive. The tower cracks. The dark emperor falls.  The earth finds the splattered remains of all of his lemmings. Their survivors will be found weeping because they also were overcommitted to the lies at great cost.  This is precisely when the truth hurts.

I dedicate this Gestalt open letter to 1 Eduardo Saverin, who is currently being persecuted by this government for trying to escape the tax slavery of this nation. May you find happiness apart from the implied US threat of imprisonment and fiscal insolvency.

I assure you there are many, many reasons for Eduardo to want to expatriate from the US in a big hurry and take the blessings of his wealth and ingenuity elsewhere.

Dear America,

I love you.  You’re my country but I’m considering leaving you.

There’s lots of reasons why, but the most important ones are that you’ve become abusive, controlling and unreasonable.

You have a problem. You’re bottoming out right now. It’s a good thing because maybe you’ll reconsider the way you do things.You don’t listen to us, your people. In fact, you keep these ridiculous lists and demand that your gangster buddies keep tabs on us when we are at our jobs, running to the bank and at home on our computers.

You’re broke. You spent all our money on your addiction to foreign wars.  After awhile you didn’t care if it was just or unjust you…kept making war happen.  No matter what we said or did, how many people petitioned you or who emptied into the streets, you can’t stop paying for the wars. You’ve fleeced us to death.  You’ve borrowed us into bankruptcy.

Now that we’re all broke- you blame and cast aside the poor for their poverty, the sick for their illness and the migrant for their quest for opportunity.

Your enablers, your crooked money laundering mobsters on K Street robbed us, your kids, and your grandmother while you watched.  You didn’t care.  As long as Afghanistan could keep it going so you and your buddies could sport kill civilians.

Now the world blames us because we can’t control you.  You are so far gone.  People still show up to work in government, but they are all numb and half crazy because none of this has any meaning or makes any sense.   They fight each other to distract themselves from the fact that this government threw its internal compass into the abyss and there’s isn’t a whole lot that can be done.  The egg is broken and scrambled.

I thought you should know I’m not going to wait around while you try to figure out how to put me in a cage so you can keep it all going.  As you are reading this letter, I may be calculating a move as a despised refugee.

I’m not a criminal but if I hang around you will manufacture something I did wrong so you can trap me and keep me in place.  You don’t care about any of our  rights.  You don’t even see us.  All you see is war. Your countrymen who oppose this are your enemy. Anyone in the way of your fix is the problem.  So you dispatch your thugs to watch us “for our safety”.

You need us, but some of us are inconveniently opposed to your way of life; which happens to be sucking anyone in your reach down a dark hole.

I can count on the fact that I will be hated for your selfish, shortsighted ways with the world and steering everyone, including us, by the butt of a gun.  Yeah, you were powerful, but now we can’t care.

We have to take care of ourselves.  We are are all out of money. We have kids and sick, elderly parents who need our help.  You are going to take care of your wars until it kills you and everyone around you.

We would reach out to you, but you’re not *really* there.  You’re just not who you used to be.

America, who are you and what have you done with my country?

Don’t worry I’m not waiting around on you to find out.  

Sincerely,

An American Citizen

BTC- If they can challenge your citizenship, they can challenge your human rights as a U.S. citizen. If they can take away your rights, they can throw you in jail indefinitely without legal representation, counsel or due process or even deport you without contacting your family.
Think this scenario isn’t real?

“This program is designed to fail because it relies on information from infamously inaccurate databases. We’ve already seen an increase in racial profiling, pre-textual arrests and mistaken identity of US citizens,” she said, adding, “Combined with the lack of regulation and publicly available information on Secure Communities, ICE will be essentially immune to accountability or transparency. With a budget reaching the billions, taxpayers should be very concerned.”

It could be you.

A little-known program run by the Department of Homeland Security is using inaccurate databases and functioning “as little more than a dragnet to funnel even more people into the already overburdened” detention and deportation system of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, according to three civil rights organizations that have filed a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

ICE claims that the program, called “Secure Communities,” targets “dangerous criminal aliens.”

The “Secure Communities” initiative furthers the ever-worsening trend of involving local and state law enforcement agencies in federal immigration enforcement. The three groups say that since the inception of the program, there has been a marked increase in racial profiling, excessive costs to state and local government and due-process violations.

The groups are the National Day Laborer Organization Network (NDLON), the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) and the Immigration Justice Clinic of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. They filed their FOIA request in January.

Sunita Patel, a CCR staff attorney, told Truthout, “Our principal concern is that this is a very secretive program about which there is little public information. It is being implemented in communities, but the lack of transparency makes it impossible for community groups to determine whether abuses are being committed. We hope our FOIA suit will shed some light on the issue.
