I did not come here to read your blog, although I have and I have found it informative, thank the good, not the perfect, that I have been blessed with two ears. So that I may listen more than I speak.
I needed to thank you for fighting through the law for civil liberties, and constitutional rights. It is nice to have some representation for the people of the United States of America. We need people to fight in the legal system for us, since most of these legal events happen in such quiet, though these actions are not often seen nor heard, and they have a significant impact on the people that often hear least about these policies
People are afraid, paranoid, and programmed to feel and act alone knowing that the individual while they might change the world. Can often be silenced the most easily. While a chorus of individuals are quite difficult to silence. So it is in the best interest of the people that would assume to leave others alone, or help those that need it to act together to fight against fear and intolerance. That keeps us acting alone when we should be acting together.
To some degree I think that most of the systems that exist in our society are deplorable, insane, inhumane and if we are to fight for a more just and verdant world. Then we must fight for the other as if they are oneself, and even if all one could do is expose themselves to things they do not know or understand, and to share what is revealed to themselves. I know that in doing so they fight for all of us, and all humans that have such conduct are fighting for us as well as for humanism and dignity
I think it is terrible, that we have shuttered our eyes and minds to the realities of our lives, though this may simply be a neurobiological function to protect ones minds from the harms and terrors that the truth might bestow, yet if we face these truths and terrors we might come to live well even as our bodies are broken such as the body of Epictetus. Who fought with the greatest tool we have as human beings, our hearts and our minds in conjunction.
What I am here to address though is a thank you, and address the symptomology of a disease of integrity, and character that attacks the will and the nation. I know that one of your most famous clients, knew that. As I watched the documentary Jack Kevorkian. I knew that then as now you both where trying to do the right thing for citizens of the nation and of the world. We are more compassionate to our animals than we are to ourselves. I was proud of my fellow Michigan natives, Jack Kevorkian hero, and the triumphant champion Geoffrey Fieger. I was proud that they saved the day at least a little bit for a few very important people that would give their lives for their dignity, and hope that we would not have to suffer unnecessarily, but often times the human mind seems to not like to trouble itself with the problems that is not it's own, or those things that are not an immediate threat. This is one of the flaws of the mind, it allows us to not be compassionate and to justify this action. It also keeps us from acting when we should and preventing catastrophe with prevention instead of reaction. Thank you for your service, ten years in action is a long tour of duty. Our lives seem though to be a tour of duty, if ones life is spent serving ideals. A life of ideals though creates a life worth living
Unfortunately though often times we cannot see our own adversities and those things that within us that would work against us most. The legal system and Jack acted outside of their best interests. This was apparent and evident especially towards the end of Jack's Life where his fragility of life was seen so well. Where the bodies are our cells, and they fight our cogitation and ambulation. Though it was courageous good and noble to take up the fight even unto one's mortality. For a good fight is worth fighting, and it brings a good death
He was a man that understood the difference between a good death and a bad one. One cannot but help to after knowing of the tragedies that his family was struck with and being a Doctor for so long.
We the living though the salute those who fight and are resolved for those who might have difficulty defending themselves still we have much work to do. Since the world is no calmer now than then, with the systems becoming ever more powerful, ever more prevalent.
Should we as human beings give up, because their are those that would harm us, no, we should find ourselves more free. If for no other reason than as a holding of ones dignity against those who would seek to bar us from those freedoms, through fear and control. The fear is minded through our indoctrination, and support of stupification by not supporting what might be the single most important root of knowledge that all fields draw from philosophy. We support science without philosophy as if you can have one with out the other. The system of law, and science all came from the vast body of work that the philosophers have been struggling with for centuries, yet this work is stigmatized and dogmatized by what are supposed to be our avant-garde iconoclastic leaders. It would seem that we are on the short bus again and we all are getting on the bus to light a straw man ablaze. Let us leave those effigies at home so that at least if we are on the bus and we have nothing else to see but ourselves, the stars above, and the earth below in the domains. In seeing such wonders we might see that a great many things are still possible
Without thinking and a strong personal ethics though, we are left to the fates, in a battle between faith and free will, let us always take the step of free will. At least this is a strategy of hope, a knowing that however small we may be that we might too make a change, that will start a chain reaction to share with the world some enlightenment. Enlightenment which we all could use some of, since the world can be heavy at times. With out the peace and serenity that we might find in our solidarity, and independence. We as a nation of greatness and leaders are lost
