evolutionending BEGIN the process early, at school. First, create confusion by hurling a multitude of unrelated, disconnected facts at him. Meaning is not sought and so, by implication, is shown not to exist. Yes, there is poverty in the world's richest countries; yes, the Gulf War was fought against a dictator armed with US, British and French weapons; yes, air pollution is getting worse while we applaud the creation of more jobs in the car industry — he knows the facts but he does not know why, he cannot know why, he must not know why.

Second, teach class position: he is told his place in the hierarchy, he is “streamed”. He is taught to envy thebrightand despise theslowand to believe the concrete reality of both. Take your pickfailure (shame, rejection, relative poverty) or success (conformity).

Third, encourage indifference: he is taught not to care too much. When the bell goes, his enthusiasm is left to flounder before the greater logic of the school timetable — he is there to learn but, more importantly, he is there to stick to disciplined schedules. He must turnonandofflike a switch as required. Obedience, not enthusiasm, is primary.

Fourth, teach emotional dependency: by stars and ticks and frowns and prizes, honours and disgraces, our desolated human being is taught to surrender his will to the chain of command. The judgement of right and wrong, value and worth is abdicated to external authority. God forbid that anyone should be able to evaluate themselves as successful beyond conformity.

Fifth, teach intellectual dependency: good people wait for the teacher to tell them what to do. Only theexpert”, the authority, can decide what is good for him to know. Successful people are those who believe what they are told with a minimum of resistance.

Sixth, encourage provisional self-esteem: confident people make bad conformists. Self-respect, therefore, is taught to be dependent onexpertopinion. The desolated human being is constantly evaluated and judged. Dissatisfaction is crucial for his continued conformity. Self-evaluation — “Know thyself” — the heart of every major philosophical system, is rejected out of hand. People must be TOLD what they are worth.

Our desolated human being is told who did what, when, where, how, but he is not told why learning about algebra, plant reproduction and the French Revolution are in any way important to him. All he is told is that learning this stuff will help him pass his exams, which will help him get to university, which will help him get a “goodjob, that is to conform as part of the economic system. This, of course, is presented as being an entirely adequate answer to life; he need not detain himself with seeking or considering alternative answers (unless he is suffering from some form of anti-establishment neurosis).

But despite this great weight of brainwashing, our desolated human being is not really convinced that this is the best path, he does not really believe it answers his deepest needs. He takes it on trust, because there seem to be no other alternatives, for none may be seriously proposed. Even discussions of vegetarianism and environmental issues in the classroom are liable to be denounced by our mass media as left-wing or Fascist propaganda, or politically correct preaching (threatening to swamp the constant appeals by fizzy drink, hamburger and sports-wear manufacturers and the like, which is not brainwashing but simply giving kidswhat they want” — that is, what they're required to want).

Our future desolated human being acts “responsibly”; after all he does not know what the future holds and so he plays safe to give himself more options later, not knowing that by then he will have been brainwashed so powerfully, and for so long, that he will almost certainly be unable to extricate himself. After all, he will then say to himself that he has certainly not done all those exams just to throw them away: what sort of investment would that be? By then, half-way up the career-ladder, to leap off will seem a sort of suicide, a sort of madness. Who chooses to earn less? Who chooses tofail”?

Because the answer he has been effectively forced to choose does not answer his deepest needs, but answers the deepest needs of the economic system into which he has been born, our desolated human being continues to suffer endless boredom. The career work he is required to do is that of a cog in a giant machine. Above all, it does not involve his deepest need as a living beinghis need to be self-directed rather than “employed”. Instead it requires that he hide all aspects of his personality which do not fit the necessary template. He wears a dark suit to indicate his conformity, his submission to the norm. True, the brightness and colour of his tie does loudly insist on his maverick individuality but only in the way that government PR departments insist on theiryearning for freedom and human rightsand corporations declare their commitment togreen consumerism” andcorporate responsibility”. Beyond this, there is no colour, no individuality, no distracting spare fat or idiosyncratically human baggage. The dark suit announces that he is there to serve the absolute goal of profit, and all his individual likes, dislikes, interests, goals, values, have been subordinated to this aim. The dark suit represents the smothering of his ultimate concerns, and their replacement by the company automaton.

The need to withdraw his ultimate concerns from the world becomes far more intense at work than it was at school. He must smile, speak, shake hands, think and discuss in exactly the right way. Our desolated human being unconsciously knows that he will be successful only to the extent to which he succeeds in cutting the cloth of himself to fit the requirements of the system; that he will be successful only to the extent to which he becomesouter-directed” as opposed toinner-directed”; that is, to the extent to which he succeeds in becoming an essentially dead THING as opposed to a living BEING. Because his ultimate needs conflict with this goal, they are a real danger. The more he is aware of them, the more he attempts to fulfil them, the more he will find himself in conflict with the world around him. So he tries his best to become unaware of his ultimate needs, because he does not want to become a shameful failure, does not want to become even more disgraceful and shameful than he already believes himself to be. For then (he knows) they will say — “I always said he was a bit strange” — and it is precisely thisstrangeness”, this inadequacy, that he has dedicated his life to concealing and overcoming throughsuccess”.

Thus is created one desolated human being.

ladybird my name (ailbhe) sounds like Alpha.....when I was younger I was an altar server and at Easter we would stand outside the church as they lit the Easter candle from the Paschal fire.....ten or twelve of us in a row, two by two, dressed in our white robes with coloured ropes tied round our waists, carrying candles and crosses and thurible and incense.....it would be a dark calm night, and the congregation hushed...

....then the mood would be destroyed completely because the priest would say "Alpha and Omega" and all the altar servers would giggle and stare at me. While I went bright red.

I still feel self-conscious at that point, every Easter.

lucky duck DAY ONE
( from autumn to ashes )
can't wait to break these chains
and escape these broaken dreams
It won't be long now:
Just walk right out the door,
like you've done a thousand times before
------------
peaking at the threshold;
a fairy tale I've purchased on my own..
---------
Since you intoxicate me with all your voices & maybe if I grew wings and you lost yours, these words would flow like water if you let them scrape your heart
because the hardest part is trying to find someone to pick up the pieces of how you remind me of how i really am,
So help me understand if there's something more than I've been handed
I'm ready to be chosen
someone's got to take my hand
Life's never the way it really seems
because part of you is inside of me
'till autumn turns to ashes
and you left it all up to me...

continuous ache sorry luckyduck. it always makes my heart ache a little when i think about stealth camping on walnut beach, or the endless days at millcreek park. i will always have love for you, and i'm sorry that i didn't give you the answer you were looking for. that was just the only answer i had.

the future is just a shimmering light on the road ahead. who's to say if it's water or just a mirage? until we get there, i'd rather not speculate.

time flows like water.

endless desire she hung from the top
the ground so very far below
told me too sing the alphabet
but the words just would not flow.
i started with A, a goal fastly set
speeding through the rest,
antiscipating the drop,
blood rushing the the chest.
she let me fall before i could reach G,
i went from the place as high as the trees.
the ground drew near
excitment closed inward as i fell through the sky.
it seems it is time to say goodbye to all i held dear.
but i felt the rocks hold to catch me,
i was alive.
i swung and i flew and i sang
i laughed and i smiled
feeling alive with flame.
this is my world,
grab it quickly through the air
this is my life
truly, it does care.

I don't get it. I know in my heart if Jesus existed he would give me a clue. I am not talking about some old book with scary stories - I mean he would really get down with me and chill!

But the funny thing is...
I was walking home a few days ago passed the ghetto and three guys pulled me into an ally so deep and narrow it was like a tunnel. When I saw the first guy start to unzip his pants I just drop to my knees and started praying. Oh GOD! Oh GOD! oh GOD!

He just looked down at me and pulled out his nasty weenie and said - yah grl that's jus wherr I wans ya ta b. Then he tore at my t-shirt until my breasts where exposed. Then pinched my nipple soooo hard with a twist I almost fainted.

I could smell his stinky crotch as he pulled me near. I wanted to scream -- but all I do was whisper. No lord, please no.

Then I heard a whoop whoop cop car thingie sound and saw a bright light shine at the end of the tunnel. Next thing I knew they all ran like roaches when you turn on the light.

OK so -- it was no burning bush but it sure saved mine! Perhaps I'll have to reconsider this thing called faith!

Jesus-Lover God cares for you. Why else would He send His own son to die for you.
There are many things we cant explain on earth; in our minds we cant explain the trinity but its true,we dont understand how god died for the world's sin over 2,000 yrs ago but our sins still land on him,or the hardest one to imagine,eternity the never ending cycle of life. Any day god could come back to the earth (are you ready?) if not you need to reconsider where your going once you die (you have 2 choices heaven or a pit of fire).Some people say as a Christian you cant have fun you know what i say CHRISTIANS HAVE THE MOST FUN!
It may not be the most popular thing but dont you think its worth it? With God on your side im not saying nothing will happen to you but you will have someone to fall back on. DONT say to urself "oh ill get saved when im old and about to die" cause there are people everyday dieing in a car accident or a having a heart attack. And its sad to think they thought that and they arent going to heaven.If your afraid your gunna lose your favorite types of music you dont. (have you ever been in life way and seen all the different types of christian music?)or your favorite stores? (im a christian and i still shop wherever i want to)what doyou have to lose (the only thing you can lose is going to that pit of fire) the way of thinking that your good deeds gets you to heaven isnt true you can only get into heaven by being saved.Ok so GOD loves you and i love you 2. There are people who dont know you that pray for you (i pray for you) i dont pray for you by name but i pray that you and everyone else who isnt saved gets to know GOD so this thing was long enough i think and remember your in my prayers. If you have questions about it email me i wanna help you in anyway i can.
