69. The world is, and always has been, a dangerous place. Civilization is only skin deep.

Many of us have, in this nation, lived in a bubble that is the result of the unity of New Deal idealism. There was more to Roosevelt than economics, and more to MLK than civil rights. They explored the depth inside themselves and kept on the path of love and believing that truth and justice were worth working toward. Both acknowledged that America is not so much a country as an ideal.

And it is not finished, even though the right wants us to believe it. Because they only understood the outside of the vision, never the living soul of it. The world can be a place of infinite creativity and learning. Or it can be stopped to fit a narrow view and not move to expand for life. There is no set path, although it was said by such men as Gandhi and the leaders of the Enlightment, that the universe trends toward justice and good outcomes.

We will evolve in one direction or another. The American people and the world can embrace the knowledge that will free us or hide the advantages from the masses in order to use them as lowly beasts. When I see some of these people on the right, all I feel are what I can't name anything but low or heavy vibrations. I don't have another name for it. There is a certain portion of the people in the USA who are quite content with what the right is offering, they are willing to hate and oppress and obtain pleasure and a sense of superiority and self-righteousness from it.

But we are still free in our minds, I just hope we will not succumb to what I would call a darkness. Rough ride ahead.
