Why does he never Recant?

The journalist scribe

Repeats his tribalist rant

Following the media mogul’s interest

Why does he never recant?

Where is the independent media?

To get the info where are we to go?

How can we trust our media?

Capra’s Meet John Doe

Conservative voices are censured

Big Tech thrives

Protect the 1st Amendment

When will the Technocrat anti-trust Bill arrive?

The silent war has begun

On an unsuspecting people it was waged

The laws that are said to protect them

Turn out to be the bars of their cage

The endless division to reconcile

The foundation of trust

Lies in our honesty

Not only on the personal level

But in all of society

Truth permeates culture

Despite all of our reasons to lie

If you never ask the questions

You will never know why

The laws of man

Were meant to be applied

Equally for everyone

But only a free moral people can decide

The problem with the laws of man

The endless division to reconcile

The minds of men are compromised

The same minds that are used in the trial

We need to have a Conversation

We need to have a conversation

One that reduces our political doubt

It seems our reliance on any media bias’

Only drives our willingness to shout out

We must strip away the narrative commentary

Discuss the ideas’ logical construction

And dismiss all of the fallacies

By simple logical deduction

If we use any sources for reference

We should cite each source

Noting which ones we reject

And which ones we endorse

I tire of all of the rhetoric

The sophistry that we spew

Who here is not guilty?

Who here will admit there are very few?

We seem to be polarized

As evidenced by the social media rant

I wonder who will rise above the hyperbole?

I wonder about those who can’t

Have we lost our minds?

Trying to prove our political expertise

In truth it lies in the study of human behavior

And in the study of logic but with no guarantees

Best to Look Forward

Sometimes you have to hit bottom

Before you can rise up again

Placing the lens of humility

Over a life in the fast lane

You can observe the world around you

You can learn from people you know

You can learn by proxy

Or you can keep the status quo

The doors to opportunity

Are all around to find

Best to look forward

Rather than staring at the closed door behind

Elst We Stay in the Cirque

Visualize the triumph

Discontinue behaviors that do not work

Identify what fails us

Elst we stay in the cirque

Repetitive bad habits

No matter how we justify

Locks up our will

Because we tell ourselves these lies

Precisely what master gives us liberation

Is the same master that enslaves our mind

To see this duality

A gift of sight to the blind

DCG

No Meaningful Relationship that is True

You tell me to be more positive

But if you really listen to what I say

Even with my pain and suffering

My outlook is still pretty good at the end of the day

I know we are not close

A chasm of ambivalence I cannot hide

There is a distance between us

Because of this I cannot confide

It’s hard to open up

If you are not understood

And so I isolate

I did the best I could

The issue is not about loving

It’s more about the failure to connect

If you can’t care for yourself

Why should I expect you to protect?

Our family has not dealt with Alzheimer’s

But I can sympathize with those who do

This is what is most heartfelt

No meaningful relationship that is true

Sometimes We Boycott our Feelings

The real motivation behind the attraction

Underneath the thinking is the feeling

Uncover the justification

Promote the healing

Here I stand head in hand

Turn my face to the wall

Lennon’s hide your love away

Feeling two foot small

Ask the question

What comes first?

Some theories of emotion posit feeling before cognition

James-Lange, Cannon-Bard, but the Schachter-Singer two factor theory seems well versed

Any way you cut it

Deep forces arise within

Shaping our behaviors

This is how bonding memories begin

Sometimes we know the exact reasons

Sometimes we do not

Sometimes we boycott our feelings

That often precede the thought

Best to be open and honest

Childhood memories are indeed strong

If you cannot identify the core feelings

Turns out you may get it all wrong

DCG

I Challenge you to think Positive

I challenge you to think positive

Even if just for a day

No complaints or criticisms

As they will only lead the mind astray

Can you appreciate and be thankful?

For something or someone that benefits you?

If just for a day

Could you consistently render this view?

It won’t be that easy

It’s easier said than done

More probable to do in a day

Than it is to do in the long run

DCG

The Argument is Hollow

The Argument is hollow

Fallacious reasoning at its best

Very simple to deconstruct

If you know how to put it to test

Each point that is asserted

Make logically conflated assumptions

Attempting to show hypocrisy

But sounds more like a grade school boy’s logic malfunction

Case in point

To say “my body, my choice” is completely absurd

Have you considered when life begins?

And if you have, when does the child have a word?

When adults argue like children

Using feeling as a way to attack

Better off to stay in your echo chamber

If you don’t want the negative feedback

Having a valid argument

Must be determined by moral common sense

And understanding the issue raised

From each side of the fence
