In the Galactic quest for understanding, I guess I am always one of those who will keep the worm holes open. If you have read anything of mine I have an affinity to try to get to the whole of things through the pieces. It is almost a hobby and a curse, a pondering of great thoughts, ugly truths, silly notions, reason and logic.
I am, according to the numerology, the zodiac, the ancient stuff of superstition and legend, mystical or mythical a mediator. Someone who can bring opposing sides, or in some cases thoughts to a mutual understanding of some kind or another. It makes sense, I always felt since I was little that I was here to be a buffer of some kind. So in this atmosphere of charged political and personal feelings, my prayers for understanding of aspects of this has been well.... lacking.
As I have gone through life I have seen where some folks do things easier than others. From music to careers, interpersonal relationships and social aspects, someone is having an easy time with the Flute at 6 years old than the other one. Someone is having more success than someone else, it is who we are and it highlights our unique gifts one and all. Now here we are at a very unfortunate time though, when the tower of Babel has been built in our societal landscape, and there is no lack of those building and those pulling it down.
So I hear the appalled supporters of this administration. I hear their pleas of letting him just do his job, and how the reaction of the left is pushing people to the right even more. They say they cannot stand all of this hatred of the man and cannot understand where it is coming from. They say that the left are elites and that the left puts up fake news and is overreacting.
I hear the left and the appalled unsupportive antagonists of this administration. The fear of the megalomaniac in the WH, the pure hatred and naiveté's of the man and the things he doesn't understand. The fact that the President has to be one for all, or at least act like it or else there is division that tears us apart.
As I hear the pleas from both sides and the middle, the calls for their expectations to be met and met fully. I wonder what the calls would be if it were another victor in the big seat, but she is not. We are left with a mass of humanity speaking Wookie on Vulcan, some other language, but it really is just the same language in all honesty. The same things are being said, the ways to the ends vastly different, I will make you feel better, I will make sure that I at least pretend to care. The only people that care about you are your own kind, the ones that believe enough like you. Everyone else is lying and trying to turn your head around into their nutbaggery.
So in dealing with any mitigation any kind of getting to the bottom of it to communicate it is important to understand something. That we are dealing with emotions applied as logic on both sides, reasoning replaced with peer reviewable fear or determination. People want to feel appeased and that they are more like everyone else, it is part of the head stuff we adapted when we moved into communities. There is little independent living and thinking going on anywhere anymore, just varying degrees of the way it is delivered and applied to life. To prove it just go outside.
When I leave my doors and my beliefs come with me in my everyday life. I am not acting out of fear, I am not leery of my fellow citizens, I do not worry about being a victim of crime let alone terrorism. I treat everyone else as I would like to be treated, and shun or disparage not a soul. Outside of these walls of my home is my home, it is my town and my country, the people that reside here with me are incredibly different and come from vast cultural origins. I do not see a Supporter or a Resistance fighter, I do not speak with people on the subject in public, I do not argue or threaten my point on anyone, we all get along. I am friends with some of the most ardent supporters, yet I don't know that they are or not. I am friends with some of the biggest resistance fighters and writers, and yet I don't know that for sure. What it means is that beyond this thick and thin of running this country, is that we work pretty well together.
This is not about people as much as principles, not about your neighbors or immigrants as much as it is the thoughts of others. Thoughts that are normally about getting along with people rather than fighting them. Some folks have it easier on this level and some do not, some feel the vitriol of anger is a showing of support and love. This is all the same language, no Wookie or Vulcan, but human in all it's connotations as a plea for those emotional needs to be met, not necessarily the logical ones. When we see that the same things are trying to be said by both sides, that at some point both sides are valid, then we can get rid of this propaganda floating around. This psychological game of minds that on it's surface is baffling and frustrating, but in reality is the same language. Right now though the screams of the Wookies will go unanswered by the logic of the Vulcans, never realizing they were both speaking the same tongue. When we realize that the things separating us is not the facts, but the delivery, we can all order from the same place again.
