Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket! Good to be with you on this Tuesday, the twenty seventh of July, 2010. Weather on Cape Cod has improved from the record setting temperatures that have plagued the East coast now for most of the month of July, with “seasonable” temperatures expected today…80 degrees Fahrenheit with plenty of sun for all to enjoy. As we embrace yet another day on this little blue rock I call earth, I thought I might share some insight from New York University’s President, John Sexton, who has put a definition on the ‘echo chamber’ that the blogoshere has become, replacing the “news” from traditional sources with loose LIES and fear manipulation, shaping the “hearts and minds” of, as the p.o.h.n. likes to put it, “the American people”… What transpired with the firing of a valuable member of the USDA via a blatant fabrication of what was said, manipulating it into something that was the polar opposite of the TRUTH, remains the bench mark for up and coming “posts” by evil intentioned individuals like Andrew Breitbart and the rest of the republican “strategists” whose ultimate goal is to do the bidding of their corporate masters. That bidding has nothing to do with the “American people”, or at least the ones who don’t have two nickles to rub together. Sexton, who is opening a new concept for an international university that will take the best and brightest the world has to offer and, hopefully, come up with some real solutions to the monumental problems facing not only our country, but the world at large, is one of those anti-venom specialists who may help turn this tide of ignorance around. “Praise the people who are engaged in thoughtful conversation,” said Sexton, “we need more “T” shaped people in this world, those with depth and breadth, bringing about ideas that promote the health and wealth of ALL, as opposed to the few, who hide behind a false premise that they are actually on the side of “the American people.” We are not a stock, or a commodity to be traded on a day trading pc. We will not be defined by your collective accepted egoic mess that the “powers that be” and utilitarians at large have defined as success. Aristotle once said, “the great TRUTHS we learn experientially.” That would be counter-intuitive to the p.o.h.n., for they have created this great “echo chamber of deceit”, designed to create mistrust, misinformation, and mayhem. No longer do we seem to have an open exchange of ideas that can transform the “talking points” or “common wisdom of the day” into an open dialogue of what is RIGHT and what is wrong. What WE fail to realize is that OUR voice counts–that collectively, we see the folly of our ways, we KNOW the difference between what is right and what is wrong. WE, collectively, can turn ANY tide and side on reason’s sweet shores, as opposed to the polar opposite, mutating as I write these words, defined in a prison of intolerance, fear and hate–a place where LOVE cannot be seen, felt or heard. This IS a mission worth taking. LIGHT shines through the darkness, eliminating it forever, and the more people embrace that fact and take action, the quicker this country of OURS will heal from decades of mismanagement, misguided intentions and mistakes of monumental proportions, such as our misplaced priority of taking care of our brothers and sisters who may not have what you or I have…you know, in the SPIRIT of the religion of choice for the p.o.h.n., Christianity, whose sole spokesperson once said, “what you do to the least of me, you do unto me.” GOD’S SPEED to the GULF, all of the people, SEA TURTLES, DOLPHINS, WHALES, BROWN PELICANS and marsh lands therein…may your nightmare be over soon! Have a nice Tuesday everybody! Peace~M
