As Chiron ends it’s tenure in Pisces, and moves into Aries in April of 2018, the specter of violence, wounded warriors and grieving men will expand, almost exponentially. Yesterday we milled around the capitol and America’s finest assembled on its steps. Invocations and blessings were in abundance and there were men (and women) proudly displaying their medals and badges of courage and valor. These are the hard won manifestations that not only bring pride, but also validate the attendant suffering for an ideal, an abstraction, the freedoms that we are able to enjoy do to their sacrifice. And it also might be one of the highest forms of cognitive dissonance that we experience as a collective in this lifetime.
As we approach Chiron in Aries, the vulnerability of men, athletes, warriors and soldiers will become a major issue and talking point—already has—opened up thanks to Harvey Weinstein and his 29 degree Pisces Sun for better and worse.
THE OTHER SIDE OF VIRTUE SIGNALING
The Alt-Right, and the good people of Kekistan have injected the idea of virtue signaling emanating from the Left into the Vox Populi . Here’s a brief definition of virtue signaling via Wikipedia;
”Virtue signaling is the conspicuous expression of moral values done primarily with the intent of enhancing standing within a social group. The term was first used in signaling theory, to describe any behavior that could be used to signal virtue—especially piety among the religious. In recent years, the term has become more commonly used as a pejorative characterization by commentators to criticize what they regard as empty, or superficial support of certain political views, and also used within groups to criticize their own members for valuing outward appearance over substantive action. This usage of the term has been criticized for misusing the concept of signaling and encouraging lazy thinking.”
On The Left, one of the most common and self-hating example of virtue signaling, usually emanating from universities, is the current trend for people of Caucasian/Anglo persuasion to self flagellate, preferably in public, to the point where they are begging for their own genocide. But does The Right have it’s own form of virtue signaling? You bet your ass it does.
The most common form of VS for The Right is the love of the military. It’s sacrosanct and inviolate. The elites not only love it, but they pile it on, because it gives them virtually carte blanche to exploit the love of country and patriotism for whatever it is they desire. Regime change? No problem. Whip up the masses. Confiscating resources? Sound liberty’s clarion call and send in the troops. And we’re always quick to say “thank you for serving” even if it’s for the booty and plunder of Exxon, Raytheon, Brown and Root, and Halliburton. It’s allowed them to send our sons and daughters for the last seventeen years into the living hell of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, and Yemen. Now, Iran is the target and the same fervrent love of country, mixed with bogus outrage. The blathering war pigs (hawks are too noble) are jacking into the amplification of the greatest virtue signaling that The Right can sound.
Rarely, if ever is there any questioning of the endless wars that will only seem to abate, when the false flags of domestic terror no longer fly in our faces while the world is moved into a centralized, global government.
The war on terror is a modern con game, that’s built on the obscene virtue signaling of The Right, which unconditionally loves the military with unquestioned support. The military enjoys a safe haven that’s not even afforded to Christianity. Look at the NFL. After a tumultuous season that saw civil disobedience manifest as kneeling during the national anthem (thanks to Trump), this weekend the NFL is draped in camo and I guarantee you that not one player will be kneeling this weekend. It would be professional suicide.
During Uranus retrograde, fans have stopped watching games on TV and at the stadium, due to the players disrespecting the flag and vets by not standing during the anthem. And while throwing economic weight around by shunning the league and it’s sponsors like Budweiser, it has become a potent form of protest that has resulted in lower ratings and numbers, but the whole concept is misguided and deeply manipulative.
When Colin Kaepernick started it all by sitting on the bench during anthem, he went public with what amounted to a list of demands, with some skewed social invective thrown in for good measure, though to his credit, he was equally harsh on Hilary and The Donald. Not once did Kaepernick or any of the other players that followed ever address the issue of war, which affects all of us. Instead, it had to do with social injustice, police brutality and the inequity of life in the inner cities.
But what if they actually addressed the issue of endless conflict and, the walking suicides in waiting that come home every day. How long do you think they would have allowed those protests to go on? I’d say not more than two weeks, because that would violate the rules of engagement on the front lines of civil-disobedience . MLK was rumored to have been assassinated when he went off the rez and began to address and question the US’s involvement in Vietnam. Once he took his role as world savior a little to seriously, he was rapidly removed. Just like today’s SJW’s, they are allowed to protest inside their lines, but if they stray and take on topics that are out of bounds like war, or truth such as the veracity and gospel of 9/11, they would be shut down almost immediately and their Soros money would dry up.
Do our veterans need our love, respect and devotion? I’m not sure, because in so doing, we perpetuate the illusion that war is a bad, but necessary thing that we must be involved in, the dirty business of liberty. What they do need is compassion, empathy and understanding for signing up for a bad deal. They don’t deserve to be thrown under the bus. We saw what happened in the aftermath of Vietnam as vets came home to a country that not only shunned them, but also called them traitors or worse. In order to reverse the trend of endless wars for the MIC, banks, and countries that abuse our men and women as cannon fodder, we must begin the process of changing the nature of celebrating deformity and death as the ultimate perversion of virtue signaling.
Instead of slavishly going along with the programming, we need to question why this is still happening, who we are fighting and when we can expect an end to this slaughter of our sons and daughters, husbands and wives in the name of some vague sense of liberty, the ultimate feel good and cheap pathos at the expense of human suffering and the endless sacrifice at the bloody altar of Mars.
