Thwarted Truths and Unbidden Consequences

The thwarted truths:


The lies we are told every single day lead to unseen consequences.

They promote distrust, intolerance and divide the communities we live in.

This is probably by the deliberate design of the political bickering and back stabbing, but it serves no purpose to us, as the American people.

This will be my most controversial article to date. It is not for the squeamish or faint of heart. It is a report on the attempt, by a few, to use humanity as "green manure" for their personal, short term satisfaction, blanketed by their total unawareness of the realities of human evolution, or even their total indifference toward it, and of its future consequences.

Firstly, let me say, if you continue to read, you must leave your preconceived ideas, notions, and "learned" beliefs behind, at this point, in this article, and in your life in general.

Otherwise, you might find it a bit offensive.

There are NO "evil words".

Naming someone, or something, as evil is a manifestation of the human mind, learned, to avoid seeing, knowing or facing the truths of reality itself.

"Evolution" is a process of moving forward. It is a process in which the whole universe is a progression of interrelated phenomena. Nothing more - nothing less.

"Speculation" (pondering) can be fun and enjoyable, or a frightening experience, depending on how gullible the recipients are, who hear someone else's thoughts or beliefs said aloud.

"Assumption" is a fact, or statement (as a proposition, axiom, postulate, parable, or notion) taken for granted. Accepting the ideas of another person's words as truth because we are conditioned into believing that, if a person is an "authority" on a particular subject, then what they say "must be true".

"Arrogance" is exaggerated, or disposed to exaggerate, one's own worth or importance in an overbearing manner. When man [men] or woman [women] possess or promote, their own self importance or self worth , they will usually have an "authoritative" figure to 'arrogate' their beliefs. This means having someone else claim that what they ascribe to is fact, for some kind of recompense. If you pay some people enough in money or renown, they will attest to anything with, or without, proof of validity. We tend to accept what they say because they are "more knowledgeable" than we are in their field of expertise.

For every action there is a reaction

For every Action, there is a Reaction

Now we can put these concepts into some kind of perspective - that 'most' people will be able to comprehend.

For anyone to assert, or assume, that what they say, preach, or teach, is all that there is, is cheating their pupils, students, audiences, or their clergy, out of the actual beauty of truth itself.

Some truths may be ugly by their very nature, but the reality of truth is always a wondrous and beautiful thing to behold. The truth will always set you free in every way.

What the arrogance of man has accomplished so far:

You will be thinking that there is NO beauty in these truths. But, the beauty lies in the fact that once truth is accepted, no matter how ugly it may be, it can be changed. Simply accepting the ugliness of truth must not be an option.

In my article "Should we all stop drinking cow's milk?", i spoke about the evolution of our genetic disposition based on thousands of years of symbiotic relationship between man and cow's milk and the possible effects of its genetic manipulation from man's use of this genetically altered product.

Today this problem has escalated exponentially as corporate greed has done, far beyond the scope of just cow's milk. It is fast becoming the norm for all food production. It has spread from cow's milk, to meat production, to vegetables, and now all the oceans' food supply is threatened without any concern or constraints by an uncaring government.

Greed truly is God in this world.

Whether we evolved from the sea, or we were 'created' from nothingness, the effects from then to now are the same. As a species that requires sustenance to survive, we have developed this symbiotic relationship between our bodies and the foods we ingest. The old adage: "you are what your eat" is profoundly true in all aspects of its interpretations.

For "man" to presume to know more than nature itself, is the severest of arrogance and pride. With their over zealousness to make greater profits, man as altered the genetic makeup of the foods we eat without any regard to the genetic consequences of their actions.

Since the beginning of the introduction of genetically altered foods, there have been corresponding "changes" in the genetic coding sequences from those altered foods we ingest and our "natural" evolutionary processes.

This has caused degrees of, in yet unknown proportions, "genetic shifting", leading to the unforeseen consequences of, either, or both, accelerated or arrested, development. 'Normal' human growth and development for thousands of years has been solely dependent on what we ingest.

The unbidden consequences

My speculative suggestion is that those "genetic shifts" or "genetic drifting" , (caused by the genetic manipulators), have in some cases accelerated (example:

  • development of cancer) or arrested natural growth patterns (example: pedophilia - genetically 'stuck' in a prepubescent state of development)
  • and or, mutant development (example: increased incidents of autism, diabetes,
  • and other, yet unknown, new diseases and disorders).

Only time will tell the full extent of these paradoxical genetic shifting processes.

And in our continued ignorant state of religious dogmatism, we will blame it all on the devil, as usual.

When in true realism, the evil lies in that base religious dogmatism itself and overshadows truth by fear and guilt for even considering this possibility.

Man has made many of his own laws and punishments based on non-truths.

The consequences of these laws only led to more crime and greater punishments.

a society can not make a law and punishment based on flawed logic, greed, or manipulation for self gain.

We can no longer hide the truths behind our own masks of ignorance and mistaken beliefs.

For every action, there is a reaction.

This is a truism with consequences based on those mistaken beliefs, that are based on our flawed religious teachings. Will this madness ever end?

If you choose to ask anyone who is more knowledgeable than you, or i, on these matters, do not ask them if what i am saying is true.

They will only answer based on what their own personal perceptions of what they believe to be truth.

So, ask instead:

Is what i say here possible?

The only logical, rational and honest answer is "yes - anything is possible."

Like it, or not, we can not make laws under the veiled hope that these laws, and their subsequent punishments, will somehow miraculously change what man has unwittingly done to himself.

Other choices we have as humanity?

Kill off everything that does not conform to past beliefs,

or embrace the truth and live with it in peace and harmony,

with the knowledge that it is justly what "man" has done to "humanity"

and the 'evil' lies only within that knowledge, and doing nothing about it.

Thwarted (twisted) truths and their dire consequences

Excerpts courtesy of moveon.org

The following is an excerpt from moveon.org. It is another example of the thwarted lies politicians tell without any conscience, simply for their own personal gains:

Here is a list of five lies that Paul Ryan told when he gave his speech at the Republican National Convention. Every single news outlet has reported/commented on these lies. And yet, they persist in telling them as truth. They say that if a lie is told often enough even the liar believes it to be truth.

1. Lie: President Obama is the "greatest threat" to Medicare.

Truth: Obama didn't make any cuts to Medicare benefits; he made cuts to provider reimbursements, to improve cost efficiency and extend the fiscal security of Medicare by eight years. According to the Medicare actuary, "[Obama's] Affordable Care Act makes important changes to the Medicare program and substantially improves its financial outlook."1

But Ryan actually does want to cut benefits. He proposed dismantling Medicare and replacing it with a voucher system, leaving millions of seniors to come up with more money to pay for care out of pocket.2,3

2. Lie: President Obama didn't save a General Motors plant in Wisconsin.

Truth: First, Obama wasn't even in office when the GM plant closed. Second, Obama never made a promise to save it.4

3. Lie: President Obama ignored recommendations of a bipartisan debt commission.

Truth: Paul Ryan actually sat on that commission. And he led Republicans in voting down the commission's own recommendation. So the commission never gave a report to Obama, because Ryan himself voted to kill the report before it could.5

4. Lie: President Obama is responsible for the downgrading of the U.S. Credit Rating

Truth: House Republicans, including Paul Ryan, held the full faith and credit of the United States hostage to try to ransom it for trillions of dollars in cuts to social programs without increasing taxes on the wealthy one dime. Standard & Poors said specifically, "We have changed our assumption on [revenue] because the majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues." That's why our nation's credit rating was downgraded.6,7

5. Lie: Ryan wants to protect the "weak."

Truth: Ryan's biggest feat in his political career was proposing a budget with dramatic cuts to programs benefiting the poor. He'd cut Medicaid by one third, take away health care insurance from 30 million Americans, and cut Pell Grants for 1 million students. All so that he could give more tax breaks to the rich.8

This is a terrific hub with food for thought. I have to agree with most of it. I grew up in a lifestyle where we grew our own food, killed for our own meat, and drank fresh cows milk. Now in our small community we are seeing children dying at a young age from cancer and other diseases. Greed will be the downfall of those trying to control the world and its products.

Great hub!

This is a very important hub and the warnings contained in the hub need to be heeded. Greedy people are using science to line their pockets. This was once done at the expense of the poor and ignorant. Because the information is readily available to most of us in this day an age ignorance is no longer an excuse so it is not surprising to see GM products being tried on people from poor countries.

I have watched not just the first and second episodes of the videos at the end of the hub but my wife and I watched the series. It is a very sad and also frightening state of affairs.

Thank you for writing this hub and for continuing to champion the voice of truth.

I am also putting this hub on my wall and will be doing so regularly. I will also be putting it up on my WordPress blog.

It is all about how to make food appealing, cheaper, more profitable, etc. It is crazy that we would take a perfectly good batch of strawberries and then spray them with dye so that they appear more 'red' and 'ripe' so a consumer will pick them over the brand that is not as luscious red.

Regarding milk, you are right on. By the way, ever notice how much sugar is in milk? Milk and corn are pretty much in everything we eat. What is the longterm affects? I don't know. I just did a hub on a similar subject by examining Jesus as a capitalist. I was sort of looking at how greed affects us.

Terrifying possibilities...indeed! Thank you for daring to bring to light that which the powers that be would keep secret in the name of greed!

Your hub is already creating quite a stir on my FB wall. I wish you had FB so you could see for yourself. I have asked one of the people who commented to speak to you directly as I said you would welcome the opportunity to answer his reservations about what you say.


Regina nathan 5 years ago

Have been quite frustrated witn our apparent inability to act on so much of like info available to us all. Our own lifestyle change was based on such research and info, but I still get terrified as more and more I realise that our very choice is being taken away from from us. If more numbers do not wake up soon, will it be too late? Already big companies are boasting that they own 90% of all seeds etc, Animals have been vaccined and medicated to the hilt....ugh! I could go on but ...

Your article brings to light what the greedy wants to keep hidden. One solution would be to grow our own food and stop eating meat, this is impossible for city dwellers, but we all can open our minds to truth, be open, and fight against injustice, knowing that God loves all people who have love in their hearts instead of hate. Thank you for a really good informative hub.

Thanks for reading and commenting. The sad part of growing your own food these days, is that there are no more "genuine" seeds left to be had anywhere. Monsanto owns the monopoly on seeds and they have all been genetically manipulated in one way or another. This practice can only end in tragedy. This government has stuck its nose in every aspect of our lives, except for insuring the safety of the foods we eat, and protecting the water supply from contamination. It is sad when corporate america comes first in everything.

Thanks so much for reading and commenting. I finally opened an account of Facebook, but it is not very user friendly, and i have yet to figure out how to post anything on it. How do i find you on Facebook? Monsanto is king of the seed providers, as well as their famous (and deadly) round up weed killer. It is still difficult for me to comprehend just how this government could sell the American people out, for the sake of this corporate giant that is only interested in profits, at the expense of the health of the people. I can't believe they are ingesting their own products. It would not surprise me if they have the only original seeds left in the world and are harvesting "natural" products only for their own use. (a little paranoia perhaps).

Thanks again for posting this on F.B.

Thanks for your comments. There is no way of knowing which foods that you buy are genetically modified, or not. Although, you can tell the difference in the taste of some of them: tomatoes, broccoli (imported) and green peppers are the ones that have lost their original taste to me.

We have no idea what in hell we are eating, or what country it comes from these days. Most of our foods are coming from China, and other 3rd world countries.

http://hubpages.com/profile/tndrhrt23.

thanks for reading, and your comments. Although, there are thousands, if not millions, of us who know what the food manufacturers are doing there is little we can do about it. I complain to politicians as often as i can, and have joined many "food watcher" groups, but there seems to be no one listening. Certainly no politicians. They are more interested in taking rights away from women, busting unions, giving bigger tax breaks to the wealthy, and mandating morality, than they are about the health of the nation.

Thanks for you comments. It is completely frustrating to know what they are doing to our food supply, and that there is nothing we can do about it. Here is a link to a video on youtube that will totally make you sick. I have not eaten beef in over 30 years and will never again. The rare meats that i eat are from local farms only. We really do not require meat in our diets any way. The good that eating meats used to give us, has long been lost with the genetic manipulation of the animals they slaughter for food. The same protein that meat give us can be gotten from nut, beans, soy, etc..

Thanks for reading and your comments. Check out the video link that i added above in the previous comments to Regina, and you will never eat beef again.

We started growing our own vegetables a number of years ago because we didn't trust even the so called organic selection in shops. Now I wonder about the seeds we buy and where the plants come from in the local garden centre. So many more questions need answering now after reading this hub ... thank you

Thanks so much for reading and commenting. That is the biggest dilemma we are facing today. We have no idea just how far Monsanto has gone (and yes, with our government approval) in altering the foods we eat. It is estimated that in as little as 5-7 years there will be NO ORIGINAL SEEDS left available for consumers to grow their own foods in safety. It is truly unfathomable and impossible for me to understand how this government could have allowed this to happen. It surely shows the lack of concern by politicians, or the total lack of intelligence, regarding the safety of our food supplies. We supposedly 'elect' those jerks to represent us, instead they only represent themselves and their pocketbooks.

Thank you so much for sending me this comment made on Facebook regarding my article. I have copied/pasted these remarks intact, and my response is following his comments. The link to his F.B. account is not accessible via the link provided. dw

Regarding Face Book Comments:

From:

"Spirit Whisperer (via HubPages)"

To: d.william (HubPages)

Spirit Whisperer on HubPages

has sent you this message.

Here are two comments made by Myles Barrett Mulroy on your article which I put on my facebook wall:

I have a lot of issues with this. Firstly, I inherently distrust anything trying to pass itself off as factual while simultaneously embracing a sensationalist style. Secondly,this guys grasp and interpretation of biological science is WAY off. Genetic modification of foods has been ongoing since LONG before the advent of modern science. Modern cattle and swine, cauliflower, the vast majority of fruit varieties (what, you thought Granny Smiths grew in the wild?) and pretty much anything that continues to be farmed today are all GM foods. Thirdly, there's nothing new about the great connivers of our day selling off destructive crap disguised as something of worth, from heroin sellers to the majority of children's toy manufacturers to McDonalds to farmers who swell tomatoes with water and "bulking" hormones. Fourth, he preys on squeamishness which is a surefire way to instill ignorance. Most allergies are wholly curable via worm therapy. Posh First Worlders (the onle sufferers of allergies) tend to balk at the concept of worm therapy due to their (sometimes forgivable) failure to understand wider concepts of ecosystems.

Ultimately, the "problem" the writer focuses on is the tip of an iceberg, but despite his delusions of clarity, he still fails to address the wider problem that so few want to admit: Hunter-gatherer societies are more sustainable, more affluent and healthier (physically and mentally) than agricultural. He is indeed a fear-mongerer. Flava Flav said it best: "DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!"

My response to: Miles Barret Mulroy:

First of all, let me say thank you for taking the time to read my article and commenting on it. I have copied/pasted your remarks to the comment section of my page in www.hubpages.com/profile/d.william.

Your issues are more argumentative than factual and sarcasms do not make for a logical and/or intelligent dialogue for discussion of ANY issue.

Thank you also for referring to my work as written in a "sensational style", although i am sure that remark was not meant to be complimentary.

Secondly, your comment about my grasp of biological science is rudimentarily unfounded, as you have no idea of my educational background.

Your words try to sound informed, but you are mixing oranges with apples (no pun intended).

There is quite a vast difference between the (grafting) of types of apples to produce a new apple; and genetic manipulation to change (anything) on a genetic level (by artificially altering the genes within a cell to produce mutant version of what is natural).

You are correct with you statement that most foods today are genetically modified. But your sense of trust and loyalty to those who blatantly alter our foods at a genetic level are total biased and flawed.

Sorry you felt "squeamish" about the article. It was intended to invoke that exact reaction to make people aware of the dangers of G.M. foods. Thank you for recognizing that one fact.

Your 'cure' for allergies is not only amusing, but again unscientifically based in logic and unable to be empirically proven safe until people ingesting these G.M. foods either survive unscathed, grow another appendage, or worse.

There is NO justification for food manufacturers genetically modifying the foods we eat without first informing the public and giving people a choice as to whether they want (or dare) to eat those foods or not.

Food manufacturers, or the government, have no right forcing this experimental process on the unaware public. There is NO global food shortages, so the bottom line is - why? Experimentation on humans (again) or greed? Pick one - both are atrocious.

Your reference to hunter/gathers societies is irrelevant and superfluous to the intent of this article; which is to make people aware of what they are eating.

I suspect that you somehow, participate in, produce G.M. foods yourself, or otherwise benefit from them and would like the "public" to remain in the dark as to what is being done. So, i would conclude that your own "clarity" is to be questioned, as it is far from being that. dw
