The Remnant Meets the White Rose

INCREDIBLY written essay shows that no matter what is done by government, the seed of liberty survives.

..."The 1960s generated important questions whose pursuits were unfortunately abandoned in favor of a return to the status quo. From a variety of social perspectives, inquiries began to coalesce around the core issue: why are the lives of individuals dominated by an institutional order whose interests are enforced by state power? The civil rights movement, college free-speech campaigns, the resurgence of feminism and libertarian thought, and the anti-war demonstrations, were the more prominent expressions of this concern.

What was initially encouraging about such questioning was the emphasis on individuals asking themselves: why have I allowed myself to become exploited by systems that do not serve my interests? One saw this particularly in the feminist and libertarian movements, with people asking themselves such questions as: "what attitudes and beliefs do I embrace that have led to my loss of control over my life?"

In the cosmic sense of time, such inquiries generally lasted anywhere from five to ten seconds. Exploring how one’s thinking has contributed to his or her downfall is particularly discomforting. When one becomes aware of the presence and influence of "dark side" energies within, the desire to rid oneself of such traits often leads to projecting them onto others, and then taking punitive actions against the designated scapegoat. It is this tendency – which Carl Jung so thoughtfully analyzed – that underlies Ron Paul’s difficulties in explaining to the boobeoisie how American military aggression in the Middle East led to the 9/11 attacks. By repressing our own dark side ambitions for coercive power over others, it becomes easy for Boobus to fall for the line that others wish to dominate us; that those upon whom we trespass want to destroy us because of our virtues!"

Sophie Scholl: The Final Days

I got it at my library.

The most tortured people of our time, the Palestinians,

are showing how to survive TYRANNY in tact with hope and love of life.

. . . . . .
Do that and more.
I do not fear your tyranny.
I do not despair ever.
For I guard a seed
A little seed, that I shall
safeguard and plant again.

May we be blessed with that same faith, hope and love of life to face whatever awaits us. . . here in the land of impoverished soul of America, where the Golden Rule is booed by "christians" and "wanna-be liberators".

this is . . .

good.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Powerfully important narrative!

Last lines copied:

"As the state continues to insist upon its vicious ways, and as the vision provided by the White Rose continues to inform seeking minds, individuals might draw further inspiration from the poem The Seedkeepers, written by a Palestinian whose name I do not know, but whose sentiments are to be found in Nock’s Remnant:

Burn our Land.
Burn our dreams.
Pour acid on our songs.
Cover with sawdust the blood of our massacred people.
Muffle with your technology the screams of all that is
free, wild and indigenous.
Destroy our grass and soil.
Raze to the ground every farm and every village our
ancestors had built.
Every tree, every home, every book, every law and all
equity and harmony.
Flatten with your bombs every valley.
Erase with your edits our past, our literature, our
metaphor.
Denude the forest and the earth till no insect no bird
no word can find a place to hide.
Do that and more.
I do not fear your tyranny.
I do not despair ever.
For I guard a seed, a little seed, that I shall
safeguard and plant again."

the keepers of a sacred trust

"For I guard a seed, a little seed, that I shall
safeguard and plant again."

We are the keepers of a sacred trust.
