Today is White-Wednesday. A couple of years ago I had this idea to use this day to spread the idea of sharing hope, love and humanity in the world. I was sick and tired of the predatory commercialism that I could see and feel commanding an overwhelming negative psychological presence in every aspect of human existence. I felt harassed by every other email, targeting me and taunting me not to miss out on Black-Friday for some incredible once a year opportunity to use fake money or oppressive debt ritual to buy some glittery object for a sense of self-gratification or feeling that purchasing commercial items to give as tokens can somehow represent human kindness, love and sharing. I don’t do radio or television anymore, but I know it is plastered there. It’s everywhere telling you, commanding you and it is bullshit.
“Men (people) are rarely aware of the real reasons which motivate their actions.” — Edward Bernays, Propaganda, 1928
That quote was a lead in on an article written by Brandon Smith that I came across when I was thinking about the idea of promoting a White-Wednesday to counter and preempt what I felt had become Black-Friday insanity. Brandon is a great critical thinker and I encourage you to read his thoughts on this that I copied to the White-Wednesday Blog.
“The dark side truly knows no social or financial bounds.”
These words remain true and ring loud and clear to me at the end of a year which I have seen has been the most bitter and divisive among people that I have seen in my life-time. The extent to which TPTB have shown they will move to propagandize and control the social narrative to see-saw and jack humanity to the brink of bloody conflict and hate filled hysteria is sickening. The fact that innocent people have been truly psychologically tortured and unwittingly been turned against one another is a crime that could only be committed by the depths of the most unfathomable evil.
“A point of primary importance in Jung’s work is his discovery that at least 10 percent of any population at any given time is made up of individuals with latent psychopathic or sociopathic tendencies.”
Reread that and let that sink in for a moment. Trust me you will know when you meet the one where those tendencies are in full expression. The point I came to realize later in my relatively shuttered and reclusive life is that yes Virginia there truly is an Evil Force.
So with that in mind I wrote the about for White-Wednesday as follows:

[12:40:02 PM] White-Wednesday is a movement to bring awareness and focus to the force of good. There exists equal and opposite positive and negative energy forces in the universe. The only way to fight the tide of evil negative dark energy is to repel it with equal and opposite force painting the world in positive loving energy and white light. You are invited to share your experience of what is good.
So again this truth was brought to bear so very hard and in our face this year. It was proven to me without any doubt that the dark side is in full force and really I believe now that it has always been and will always be. It is an energy force that cannot be destroyed. The only hope is to understand that each soul is individual with a choice to either act as a force of positive or negative energy. This concept was reinforced for me through conversation with another soul I love and trust and who offered the following sage advice:
“ I do not believe the world is a horrible sick place….rather there are some very horrible sick people in it and some of them are found in some very powerful places. I also am worried about where things are headed. It is a very scary time no question. That said…….the only thing that makes sense to me is to do and be better.
I think being informed is a component of moving forward but I will not immerse myself in the lowest common denominator. It is too easy to fall down into a very dark and ultimately useless place. I am much older and perhaps that fact guides me in a different way. What does that mean? Not sure really but I will not spend my precious time dwelling on all the shit in the world gutter.
I will in my own teeny tiny way try to contribute to the ray of bright light that I still believe exists. I feel as helpless as you do. Will this change the world? Absolutely not but I have to believe it is way more empowering than falling down the dark hole of gloom and doom and evil.
…just do more. Not hardening and not isolating ….that is one thing we do have control over. One foot in front of the other plodding along towards being a more positive contributor to the planet. This is all I can do for now. Treat yourself to a break and immerse yourself in some of the beauty and goodness that is still out there.”
So this is the never-ending reoccurring story. The infinite divide of the soul of humanity that has been pointed out by great minds throughout mankind’s history again and again.
So I also offer a couple of apt quotes from John Lennon.
“They got all the weapons. They got all the money. And they know how to fight violence because they’ve been doing it for a thousand years. And the only thing they don’t know about is nonviolence and humor.”
“We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.”
So don’t forget to water the plants and spread love and positive energy in the world today.
Please make today a beautiful and loving day in the world around you.
