WAY OF THE SEVEN STARS


Response To That Final Question:

Ignorance is the Bane of Man.
At a distance removed,
Dimly remembered, and
Still not seen distinct,
But yet somehow felt;
What we do sense
Is not reality; is not the Real Thing.
This World is hologram.
Then; for lucid sleep;
For it's just a dream
Within another dream
And we are not awake.

Seven Stars' Song of Revelation

Ignorance is a jail where no escape
Is possible but through knowledge.
Don't fear nor spurn. Dare to learn:

Assent to and accept this world as it is
Before attempting ascent to any world
Aspired to or wished for. Life's glorious!

That That Is can be known but by few.
Not space, not time, not gravity exists;
But as Extension from Field of Thought.

Be subject to neither church nor crown.

Dread naught. Disdain none: Not One!
Absent That That Is, there's Nothing.

That That Is, IS. That That's Not, IS, too.
That That's Not makes That That Is: IS.
That That Is makes That That's Not BE.

By rowing to That That Is, I become "I."
Wind + Water = Wave. As THOUGHT is
The Heart and The Nave of The Wheel.

Worlds are created from Thought alone.
That which we will do is because of that
What we are. We'll become who we are.

Charity, courtesy, civility, compassion,
Are cardinal spokes making civilization;
Chivalry forms center, hub's circle core.

IS is! Be not the slave of some other's I.
This, Creed of our Seven Stars Society;
This, The Teaching of the Seven Stars:

No man can be happy if he should choose
To be exile from his own nature and soul.
ALL IS THOUGHT ILLUMINATING BEING

America is an oligarchic plutocracy

Like most nations, America is an oligarchic plutocracy.  It always has been ever since it was founded by plantation owners whose main cause was their refusal to pay excise taxes to Britain for the colonial costs of the Seven Years' War.  George Washington, for instance, owned the largest distillery in America---it's why he suppressed the Whiskey Rebellion---they were his direct competitors.  Since politicians, once acquiring public office, must seek funding to pay for future races (costs to run for Mayor of New York exceed a hundred million and to run for President of the United States exceed a billion), the only persons with access to politicians are the large contributors to their respective campaigns.  Such contributors do so because they have specific agendas to which they want politicians to adhere.  Each politician then has an obligation to follow the wishes of their contributors or his or her funding dries up.  Without funding, it's impossible to run for any public office whatsoever, and the more powerful the public office is, the more funding that's necessary to aspire to it.  So, the plutocrats run America.  The political parties are oligopolies, in that the two dominant parties agree to disparage and prevent any new party from coming into existence.  In this, they share a common agenda.  America is neither a republic nor is it a democracy.  America is an oligopoly run by plutocrats and it always has been.
