Rinse and Repeat
And we will continue the cycle of abuse, thinking with each time that we are fixing the problem, never really challenging the real issue.
In the first stages after the rejection of the authorities people deem to be the problem, the search for answers tends toward a search for the “right” method, the correct law, a better religion, or the kinds of systems of control that act in the better interests of ideologies they think would serve the most. All of these solutions framing the problem in the context that those before just did it the wrong way, and if we just got the right people in power, then we could have the world we want.
It is a common mistake in thinking, and it can take many years to break this bad thinking tendency. It frames the problem in the context of USE of the systems of control, and rarely seeks to dismantle the systems themselves, thus the historical repetitions continue, and even “revolutions” just end up being a recycling of the same ideas, with power only ever changing hands, but never really being challenged for what it is.
At some point, you realize that it has never been about who is in office, or what rules your religion has, but that the very structure itself is the problem, and that no matter how many ways you try those methods, they always lead to the same thing. Well, I say “at some point”, but for most, that realization never comes, and the human generations rinse and repeat and fight till death to impose the same oppressions on their children as they did to save themselves from.
About the author:
Glen Allan is a ridiculous person with thoughts and ideas which fly in the face of normal convention and challenge many assumptions about what people generally think of as reality.
He recognizes that many people will either disagree or claim the ideas to be founded in delusion, and only has to say that he'd like it if you could try to realize the world might not be what you think it is.
