The politicians and government are simply there to support what American’s want; instead, they constantly reinforce the fact they, and corporations, are first within the order of priority, and must control everything. Their control creates ignorance, as lies and deception cannot develop into anything of reality what so ever, we see it daily now. This country was developed and we all fought for The People and Life here to be the Priority – government and business was to support these endeavors.” – John Cox
Here’s the thing, for people to say they are religious, or spiritual, or academic, or advocate, whatever the case may be, there must exist validity. If any of these terms, vocations are to have validity, that gap between the real and the ideal cannot be so unbridgeable that it all simply becomes pie in the sky. There’s got to be a chance for justice on Earth.
We are not fooling ourselves, or any one else for that matter; as much of what many of us write today, we have become the point of the arrow of social revolution. But with such a bland world currently, where ignorance profoundly has experienced social growth, a social revolution could also mean simply getting back to quasi-normal, or less ignorance and more toward something of a dignified and humane culture.
The process is dependent upon the individual, the contract within themselves so to speak. Thoughts can be mundane, ordinary, or simply workable; or, the process can be extraordinary, enlightened, workable in an abstract way, but in time so tremendously acceptable it indeed becomes an evolutionary act – Zen and the history of the screwdriver, if the written historical form even exists . . . but oh my goodness, the changes that transpired and built off such a tool . . .
With many of us there exists no difference between spiritual practice, political action, animal advocacy, and our ongoing day to day life. One good example that I experience and see daily — Horse people tend to their horses, and those with heart and soul have time to also give toward saving horses. The same with many other groups of people – oddly, none of them have developed the mind-set that so many active groups do day-to-day; there exists today a sub-culture within our society, of those that care-tremendously and yet feel so disconnected.
If this realm, or culture, if all decided to gather together, the numbers alone of this particular sub-set or sub-culture could, and obviously should, become a power where people and animals become the priority, business and corporations secondary and support people-animals endeavors. Yes, revolution is this simple, and only when applied becomes Truly Revolutionary.
Learning from Animals
Is the revolution of this type going to be earth-shattering? It is clear to many, others perhaps not so clear and even non existent; ironically, the answers right to our front. Just as ironic, the answers have been, and continue to be right in front of us all. But we are killing the very animals that we can indeed learn significance from . . . Cohabitate in Life . . . We are all creatures of this planet, all live on this planet, and none superior to the other . . . Look where superiority gets us! Look at the destruction of our planet, from our decisions . . .
What was clear for centuries past becomes very clear today. People contribute little to the animal world compared to what animals have contributed to our world, and in reality to our very environment (yet ignored often). Oddly, the disrespect toward animals currently generate suffering, horrific abuse, and death of so many species on a weekly basis that our culture, of ignorance, is placing our very existence into question for any type of future generations to even exist. All wildlife remains an essential element in our society, as well as environmental habitats.
Through all of this there is a light at the end of this tunnel of destruction caused by ignorance. Many today, as Advocates – oddly just as simply as the screw driver appealed toward evolutions of machinery and so many other implements, people concerned with animals and their circumstance, are revolutionary.
These are actions that are needed for America — perhaps why our current government is fighting tooth and nail to avoid such transparent ongoing revolution. As Buck would say, “. . . just let that soak in for a minute or two . . .”
Right now we can appreciate, and even acquire a deeper respect for what animals have given us and remain giving us today – the capacity for enlightenment, to discover our very heart and soul and through this simple act of caring. Looking into the eyes of an animal of any type, we can see ourselves, our virtues, our very soul . . . from then onward we gain a respect, an acknowledged appreciation for the presence of the animal kingdom. In the same pretense, we have also gained a sight into what is wrong today, and surely needs corrected.
The use of drugs on our Wild Horses on our Public Lands, depletes the viability (fact and well referenced in wildlife and ecological history), and opens the door to exploitation of a very limited amount of used-to-be Wild Horses, as an end-product. Breed control has led, most often at such a capacity the Wild Horses are now suffering, to extinction – history of our wildlife within today’s environment clear on this ultimate-reality – It will lead to the Extinction of our Wild Horses as well – Shortly.
Animal Non-Profits not of a humane-mindset any longer, but an odd ignorance toward planned exploitation and contrived profits at the sacrifice of wild horses. As well, these same non-profits portray daily the lack of ability or mobility to really grasp the plight the animals are currently suffering – the Wild Horses on Public lands just one of many more examples of our wildlife being exploited, and for several reasons.
This exploitation even to the point of being hunted down and killed (Elk, deer, Cougar, Bear, et al.) — both legally and illegally, and numbers of availability based on false science and bad data gathering — Yes, we are facing many extinctions today of America’s wildlife, based on false reasons of capacity, and favored animals in the wild are nothing more nor less than a narrow scope of species, also to be hunted down and killed — ultimately to make trophies for those of ignorance to do so . . . This priority needs changed, and the quicker the better . . .
The modern social capacity toward ignorance, although, has brought a widening gap between us. The forests and the animal kingdom are over there, and the supposed civilized world over here in the cities and small towns.
Protection in numbers, for people, is the consideration for the cities, but from what? The animal kingdom? Government and municipal government are and remain much more dangerous to people than the animal kingdom — just read the newspapers or watch the news daily. Isn’t perception and propaganda interesting —
Sometimes in accepting the world, the chapter of what animals bring to us as fellow living beings on earth and how we are all connected, is overlooked; an ongoing travesty for sure. The world of intellect does not consider the heart, the soul, or the animals. The shift is the realization that we all grew up in the realms of nature, of animals, of a diversity of natural elements – not just smart-phones, guns, oil companies, abusive agriculture and corporations, and computers . . .
A New Humane Balance of Life is needed
The Circle of Life has always, and remains, very significant with many cultures and societies’, we are not alone within this ideology — A Truth: everything being connected within this circle. The world is being challenged to find a new balance. Many are looking back, toward the cultures that understood and reflected the facts of “all” on this planet are connected, and all things must be respected – this being a priority.
With this as a priority, all other circumstance fits into place, within continuity if you will, toward a much better life for all that exists on this planet – animal species and environment alike. The ideology of one-supports-the-other independently and yet as a whole – is a reality, and something that can save the human-race from becoming more ignorant than currently exists, which this ignorance will eventually wipe-out the human population on this planet.
Our society has become so bland; it is folding in upon itself — suction. We see cruelty to animals promoted as attrition in order to place food on our tables every morning and evening. That is simply not true – just from the untruth within this situation, many to include myself perceive a burst of energy from those who see it as a wrong, not of attrition nor necessity.
It is those things that will change rapidly; it is simply a matter of time is all, when people are totally fed-up with the lies, the ignorant reasoning, and the forfeiture and sacrifice of all the things that are good, the things in our society that we all hold dear and close to our hearts — replaced by something so ignorantly profound or short-term profit for so few – at the sacrifice of so many.
The revolution is upon us – All is connected on this Earth, and these are the things of importance and priority, and more and more people are realizing this truth – all else will simply come together, and life will mean something once again . . . * * * From the Cascade Mountains to You

John, I wish everybody could read this and understand the need for a cultural revolution now before it’s too late. It needs to go viral. Will share. Thank you.
