TIME TO INVESTIGATE INANITY
Today C-Span at around 2:30PM, is airing a Congressional Q&A on the topic of US Drone Strikes. This is an eyeopener on a topic about which most people have a passing awareness and little more. Transparency is stressed by such groups as the ACLU, and defended against by some politicians. That drones are used by one nation against the citizens of another seems to be beyond the pale.
Judging by the authoritarian approach toward the US public by our governing characters, this shouldn’t be a surprise. But even before such human rights violations as has become commonplace in 2022, what has been done to wildlife and nature should have forewarned people of pending dictatorship on a global scale.
As one who is aware that principles of science and ideas of spirituality meet, and has been so identified by ancient spiritual practice thousands of years ago, and specifically as found in Buddhism, our current violent and aggressive use of nature and humanity, is questionable.
In the past, others have also been aware of harm caused by behavior that seems too inhumane and inhuman. Perhaps that is a reason hierarchical Establishment via MSM has inculcated a disdain for considering actual history.
Here are a few thoughts about water.https://psyche.co/ideas/what-does-water-want-most-humans-seem-to-have-forgotten?utm_source=Aeon+Newsletter&utm_campaign=2789347d4a-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2022_11_21_05_39&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_-2789347d4a-%5BLIST_EMAIL_ID%5D —
The scale of our efforts to control water is vast. But control is illusory. Water does what it wants, as we are seeing increasingly often, as people around the world grapple with severe floods and droughts.
Many industrialised societies prioritise human need and, in so doing, cast water as a commodity or threat, leading to single-minded problem-solving. But this ‘us first’ mentality isn’t doing humans any favours. Our domineering approach to water ignores the ways that hydrological systems interact with rocks, soil, plants, microbes and animals – including us. Disturbing these systems causes myriad unintended consequences.–end of aeon info–
Coincidentally it was only this morning that I read about Rudolf Steiner and water. — https://www.edinburghsteinerschool.org.uk/news/fllow-form/

The poor quality of water and its limited supply and availability is one of the greatest challenges for our future. Presently, forty percent of the world’s population is unable to find adequate fresh water

https://www.biodynamics.com/steiner.html –Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), founder of the biodynamic approach to agriculture, was a highly trained scientist and respected philosopher in his time, who later in his life came to prominence for his spiritual-scientific approach to knowledge called “anthroposophy.” Long before many of his contemporaries, Steiner came to the conclusion that western civilization would gradually bring destruction to itself and the earth if it did not begin to develop an objective understanding of the spiritual world and its interrelationship with the physical world. Steiner’s spiritual-scientific methods and insights have given birth to practical holistic innovations in many fields, including education, banking, medicine, psychology, the arts and, not least, agriculture.
In the early 1900s, a highly mechanistic view of nature was beginning to take hold in agriculture, which led to the development and use of synthetically produced fertilizers and pesticides. As they adopted these chemical inputs, farmers quickly began noticing declines in the health and fertility of their soil, plants, and animals. A number of farmers who were familiar with Steiner’s work to renew medicine, education, economics, and other aspects of society asked if he could provide some insights into how they could renew the health and vitality of their farms.

The name of Rudolf Steiner was found in the book Gnostic Philosophy. This will take the dedicated reader through an absolutely idea-changing journey through thousands of years and right up to the present.
Incidentally the book also mentioned who they called Prince Charles. https://www.treehugger.com/king-charles-bans-foie-gras-6832601?hid=4246be665c7c525806e26d15079d974213d256e7&did=878127-20221125&utm_campaign=treehugger-daily_newsletter&utm_source=treehugger&utm_medium=email&utm_content=112522&cid=878127&mid=102859854135&lctg=196461004 —
The new King of England, Charles III, has announced that foie gras will not served in any royal residences. A letter sent to the PETA animal rights campaign group, dated November 10 and signed by Tony Johnstone-Burt, Master of the King’s Household, stated that “foie gras is not purchased by the Royal Household nor served in Royal Residences, and there are no plans for this policy to change.”–end of treehugger info–
When cruelty seems to be the point, we’ve gone too far.
