hi all this is quite the prez election. have seen a few in my life & this one seems unprecedented in many ways.
there are record high DISapproval ratings of both candidates. so one might picture that as half the country disapproving of one candidate, and the other half disapproving of the other. but for me and for maybe many others, have high disapproval of BOTH candidates at same time.
an old friend used to tell me of "under the rock" stuff in the world. the so-called Dark Side. jung referred to it as a Shadow. just as individuals have a shadow, and some with very big ones, an entire country can have a shadow.
it looks like both hillary and donald have very big Shadow sides. the public is not willing to look very deeply into these shadows. the macrocosm reflects the microcosm.
we could have a totally different world if we all were willing to face our own shadow. as Nietzsche said, "when you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares back." or as Pogo said, "we have met the enemy, and he is us."
to me Donald vs Hillary is just two very shady characters surrounded by other very shady (or shadier) characters competing for top power for various motivations. aka what has been called "Gray Men" (not sure where this term originates and it seems to have many meanings).
someone said somewhere that its like two mafioso bosses trying to vie for top dog position aka "alpha male". what is not really acknowledged about alpha males in the wild (eg gorillas) is that they get there by a mix of INTIMIDATION AND REAL VIOLENCE.
as many of the following links attest maybe this is MUCH MORE THAN A METAPHOR.
the public is unresponsive to much of this material. the motto of the individual and collective shadow is SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL, SPEAK NO EVIL. oh yeah and the election is a kind of solomonic/ impossible choice between THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS.
elsewhere, WTF is up with the FBI? ok, have long tracked the FBI with various blogs but it seems to have reached a crescendo. apparently there are warring factions inside the FBI, somewhat politically motivated, and there is some conflict between the lower and upper ranks.
my musing on this was that the FBI is sort of like the immune system for the country to fight serious crime. now suppose it is distracted by decoy-like diversions, one might call "shadowy", that keep it from prosecuting the REAL criminals. that would be quite advantageous to their continued/ prolonged existence.... another wild scenario, its hard to argue that investigating someone such as a presidential candidate is a mere "distraction/ diversion" but what if the particular crimes being attributed to them are a diversion wrt their "real crimes"?
buddha said: the truth is like the sun and the moon, it cannot remain long hidden, and he also said that right vs wrong was like two dragons fighting. there seems to be some very big fire-breathing dragons running around lately.
