Exploring my latest thoughts…..

So last night I was on Vapor Central’s  site in their live chat, talkin g with a few other people about the new laws/regulations regarding the Medical Marijuana Access Regulations  (MMAR) that is being Superseded/amended over with the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulation (MMPR),  this coming 1 April 2014, is when the regulations are superseded.. Does anyone find the irony this is happening on April fools day ? LoL … I am curious as to why this ties in with the end of the Federal Fiscal Year… the Federal government’s Year end is 31 Mar 14 and the new year begins for them 1 April 14, which is also ironic as we all loosely know about April fools day… Are we citizens, fools for not piecing this little bit of irony together? (if you have the answer please let me know or drop it in the comments section at the bottom )   =)

Anyway onward, after or just before I closed the chat for the night, to get some shut eye, one of the members I was communicating with mentioned the “fallacy” of “Relative Privation” I did not know or understand this phrase.. So I looked it up, “Fallacy” simple definition explains it as,

fallacy defined

So for ex. Fallacy might be something like “all cops are bad” the generalization made that “all cops are bad” is not accurate, because they are humans too and susceptible to human error, and some are actually compassionate. I learned that from personal experience.

Now lets take a glance at how Google defines “Relative Privation”

relative privation defined

Relative Privation detracts from the topic on hand, an attempt to steer the subject to unrelated matters to the present subject under discussion. For example, “why don’t you invest your energy better, like instead of fighting to legalize pot, why not use that energy better, and direct it to something more meaningful or significant such as “human trafficking” or “grow up, there are more important issues in the world than the legal status of marijuana, you dope head” would be a very good example of stigma combined with relative privation.. and when you can pick up on this, you can steer the conversation/debate/argument back into your topic at your favour. I would start off with saying .. “I am okay with being wrong, but please do not try to segue this topic of conversation to unrelated matters” or “please do not engage me with your relative privation ideology” and when they ask, kindly explain what you mean.

Other thoughts of late:

Are we Canadians tired yet of being played by our Government that, “we elected” to steer our country down the roads of success and abundance? I know for a fact I am tired of it, and I am learning each and every day to better myself to help slowly reshape my reality around me… I am curious what our Conservative Mind Controllers think they have accomplished this year, if anything?

Lets take a closer look at the origins of the word “Government” in my eyes, its sort of synonymous with “Controlled Mind” if you think about the word check this out.. taken right from Google Translator

The english word “Govern” translates/synonymous in Latin to “impero

command, order, rule, master, govern, charge
charge, burden, requisition, order, command, govern
king, superintend, rule, govern, administer, administrate
pilot, govern, guide, steer, navigate
order, command, govern, rule, hold sway, requisition
command, order, enjoin, dominate, overlord, govern
order, command, enjoin, dominate, overlord, govern
ordain, order, arrange, rank, sort, govern
restrain, confine, retain, surround, enclose, govern
moderate, bound, check, stint, control, govern
restrain, confine, keep back, check, embody, govern

Now the english word “mind” translated into latin, the first noun, is “mens” which is synonymous with “Mind” “brain” etc..

mind, intention, intellect, brain, design, thought
mind, heart, Soul, affections, feeling, temper
sense, thought, mind, understanding, sensation, feeling
mind, intellect, astuteness, insight, acumen, shrewdness
salt, saline, Sal, brine, seawater, mind
brain, quiz, skull, head, mind, wit
head, capital, chapter, top, chief, mind
manage, care, take care, look after, tend, mind
refuse, reject, object, decline, disallow, mind
carve, engrave, cut on, mind
respect, look back, look, regard, esteem, mind
observe, see, notice, punish, mark, mind
mark, remark, mind, turn the mind to, see, notice
reflect, examine, look, mind, regard carefully, inspect

There is no doubts that the word Government has these origins, for all governments seek to control their populace in some way or another…  so I beg the question, is “Peaceful Anarchy” achievable?  A lot of you may be thinking “dude what the F are you talking about? what are you smoking ?”   or “you can’t have peace and anarchy man, doesn’t make sense” ….. well actually it does.. lets look to webster for the many definitions of what “Anarchy” is and what majority of people believe “Anarchy” to be…

anarchy defined

A utopian society of individuals who enjoy complete freedom without government”  … Doesn’t that sound nice to you? Sounds pretty appealing to ME! The MOST popular interpretation of “anarchy” is the top 2 nouns which are “absence of government” and  “a state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority

These two nouns allude to “complete chaos” because perhaps the citizens got mentally sick of their “mind controllers“.. that would be why you might have negative connotations with the word “anarchy” … so lets look back at “Peaceful Anarchy” and see if that is achievable in today’s madness…  I want to introduce you to a quote from the man by the name of Buckminster Fuller (an out of the box thinker) who once said: “You can Never change things, by fighting the existing reality.  To Change something, build a new model to make the existing model obsolete.”

Ultimately it boils down to greed which satisfies one’s thirst for economic incentives.. if we could eliminate greed and envy perhaps peace would prevail… our desire for peace has not climaxed yet, and until it does, the game keeps being played on us.

Peaceful Anarchy” – is it achievable? Yes, I believe it is, but as I mention below, as I agree with Buckminister Fuller’s quote from above, that the positive change in the world we seek, must come first from us, first. We all must on a personal level thirst and have hunger pains for positive change in our lives. Then we must take action on a personal level to achieve this change, and then begin to help other achieve the same which will help re-shape the external world with positive energy… to bring about this change, we also need a source of enthusiasm for this “change” and to never let the “enthusiasm candle” blow out until our goal is met with SUCCESS.. for “enthusiasm never loses you” only you can lose enthusiasm.. and if you listen to what Gregg Swanson says in his podcast he has some pretty powerful stuff, such as, “if you lose your enthusiasm, there is no one to blame but yourself”… but you can also gain it back, when you lose enthusiasm or get caught up in a whirlwind of mindless thoughts, STOP, take a look around, and ask yourself this question “is this really what I want to do?”  To get a deeper understanding of this empowering concept we call enthusiasm I invite you to listen to this podcast

This might be a little redundant, but I really want to drive this point home to you all.. We cannot expect change by fighting the wrong-doers (politicians, prime ministers/presidents/dictators) of our current mad-chaotic world. In order for real change to take place, we the citizens of the world, must realize that change comes from within us first. We must seek change ourselves, before it takes place in the external world – Ghandi’s “Be the change you want to see in the world” is glove-fitting here..

If you do not know who Buckminister Fuller is, well I recommend you to learn about him, he was a very bright and thoughtful individual, I’d say he was ahead of his time… I mostly enjoyed reading this snippet from his wiki profile

Fuller attended Milton Academy in Massachusetts, and after that began studying at Harvard University, where he was affiliated with Adams House. He was expelled from Harvard twice: first for spending all his money partying with a vaudeville troupe, and then, after having been readmitted, for hisirresponsibility and lack of interest.” By his own appraisal, he was a non-conforming misfit in the fraternity environment.[3]

Amazing.. he’s on the same page as me, or I’m on the same page with him, haha..

He had a very interesting worldview is that of a “Unitarian”  (liberal religion) which has 7 main principles that sort of make up this world view (which I find to be very interesting), they are as fols:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all;
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part

These are the sorts of things that most people should value, but sadly do not, I think we should all share those values and we could do so without labeling it as “Utarian” which sort of implies “religion”, could be called “shared principles of humanity“.. In our current world model we are inherently obsessed with material things, icons and social statuses etc.. which to me now, looking back makes no sense at all… none, zip, nadda..

The answer is “how bad do we want positive – peaceful change”? because when we want it so bad we WILL do whatever it takes to achieve that. Just remember  it all starts with you. With me. Thus why I felt the importance to blog and share this, with our blogging community.
