notes to self.
would not a personal observation obfusacting shared behavior ; morays,
illustrate by default,these distortions and thus serve to define for the
orientalist mindset, greater realities ? this is innocent /naive journalism
at its finest,very welcome in fact ; and ,a late revelation,
being on the ground isnt everything .
having our collective politik propagandized and filled w/distorted imagery that
depict exceedingly broken refelections, that serve as windows of our soul,
we see and read of human rights abuse and do nothing of our own hypocrisy .
we see men hung for political commentary or alcohol abuse ,and middle east
countries utilizing gruesome punishments that shock the consciousness,one only has to read or view : the opening invocations to the gods,of many formal middle east documents, diplomatic comunique and art,in order to form, distorted beliefs
of primitivism, and non secular thought to prevail. for that we place blame,
and call it orientalism.
a country by definition is never virgin territory .yes , we are shielded and lead
astray from certain realities. by the isolation your fellow arabs and Iranians perpetuate by failing to remove 'non secular' limitations on shared culture and
nor do we help matters when our government implement isolationist policies
and sanction .only to coalesce, distill and further cultural isolation, intensifing the myths that exist in perceptual awareness of foreign socio political environments.
there is no point in tangentially discussing historical achievements of a peoples culture ,because we are only as compassionate ,the looking glass ,humanity
allow us to view, and therefore, judge in the present .
have chocolate today. look for the large bars, they seem to be shrinking in size.
found the big ones...god works in mysterious ways...
