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

The Future Population of America

Under the Health Care Bill recently passed, sixty percent of those to be newly enrolled are eligible for coverage under Medicaid, the publicly funded health plan for the poor. The majority of that increase is due to the fact that new immigrants to the United States, almost all of them Latinos, are immediately eligible for enrollment in Medicaid without a waiting period.  Many of these immigrants lack higher formal education.  Most speak English, the global language of business, extremely poorly.  Most are young.  In the USA, four percent of Latino and Black youths, those who failed to finish an equivalent of a normal high school curriculum, are actively employed.  Ninety-six percent of such youths, fifteen million in total, are not now employed. Why?  They are not employable. They are not employed because they lack basic numerate and literate skills: They can't count or read and both these basic skills are absolutely necessary for gainful employment.  There are similar deficiencies in White and Asian youths also, but not on the same large scale.  Youth who don't find work in their early years are unable to develop the necessary social skills in their adult years that can make them employable.  Even if they can find a job, they simply won't be able to stay employed.  They don't get along with others. They are disconnected from society.  They can't be engaged within normal social frameworks, since they are unable to write with any minimal competence, nor can they understand common cultural references. They become social service welfare recipients. By doing so, they drain society of its tax funds.  And since the Health Bill passed by Congress specifically prohibits funding for abortions and for sterilizations under Medicaid (to which they are now legally entitled as they now meet the Health Bill's defined definition of indigence), their numbers should begin increasing substantially.  This is because the Health Bill mandates free maternity and newborn baby care, as well as free pediatric services, for all those eligible for Medicaid, but the Bill does not mandate any preventive birth control consultative services; instead, it severely restricts them. They'll constitute, these indigents, by far, the fastest growing portion of America's population. In effect then, what the Health Bill actually makes probable is:  Since they will be lacking requisite basic job skill-sets for fruitful labor, the Bill authorizes granting a future guarantee to all those, the least productive members in society, that they shall always be the very ones who will be bearing the most offspring.
