    It depends how you look at it, right.

    You can look at it anyway you like.
    But if humans didnt exist there'd be no human evil.
    And outside of that, we will never know.

    witchcraft in politics.

    All the links you provide are about music/ musicians. With tenuous links to a darker side of spirituality, something the simple minded might somehow see as linked, though the dots are hardly there. As for any link to politics ??

    While there is definitely a link between human stupidity/gullibility and politics.
    Its a hard line, directly wired.

    Anyway I heard Sympathy for the Devil was inspired by some of the Stones or their extended entourage reading The Master and Margarita . The opening lyrics follow the opening chapters better than anything Crowley wrote.
    And you left out Motorhead

    The masters of the universe

    Sporting analogies used to reduce lives to broad brushstrokes, there are no winners in this game and we all suffer at the hands of fools, tools and the self important.
    No magi here.... their on sabbatical at some other end of some universe, maybe another universe, apparently there are multiverse's.

    (and it is strictly relative: the poverty bar used by the World Bank is income of $US1.90 a day).

    It would have to be relative, who is living on that a day and where?

    The missteps that lead to now are easily recognizable, and litter our recent history like beacons of stupidity and greed. No one needed to have prophetic abilities to see them, but they were willfully ignored along the way. And the blame lies squarely on those at the top of our society pyramid. But a blame culture took over, its so easy to say its someone else's fault if one is higher up the food chain or stop your whinging. When that person/s have little or no means to speak out, and if they do are ignored, marginalized, made fun of. Or all of it.

    confound the pundits

    That was the easiest thing of all to do, it seems. Maybe they wont be so gullible in the future. Here's hoping.

  • Up Front: Walk This Way,

    the year so many people decided to Choose Hate. Brexit. Trump.

    And johnkey decided I'm outta here, chicken shit.

    Its all been in the pipeline of human consciousness for a long time IMO.
    When business' were able to ship manufacturing offshore, unions were demonised, and self centred philosophies gained a glittering stage on which to peddle selfishness/ its your attitude bullshit( otherwise known as emotional blackmail or guilt tripping) to humanity.
    The dumbing down large swathes of the global population got itself in motion.
    And meaning what you say, was traded for polishing the language to make oneself look like one had all the answers. It got its own name too, spin. How appropriate.

    Just to me it looks like an end of empire period. And there's going to be a lot of salvaging of one's own arse and flogging off of the family jewels. Its already started where it all heads is anyone's guess, 'cause those who think they can direct it haven't got a clue no matter what nonsense they spout.
    Sorry I'm not trying to say give up, this will just take us where it will and one day sense of a kind may prevail.
    But when that will be...?
