THE GUARDIAN: Ukraine's far-right children's camp: 'I want to bring up a warrior'
This is a curse to this world. And no, I don’t mean Ukraine. Nor Russia. Nor even the Azov Battalion. I mean these men, spellbound and fighting proud to an allegiance to that which holds their lives in deeply limited bondage to nothing more valuable than a pointless illusory historical educated ideology. These parents are teaching their children to love 'Ukraine', and to hate 'Russia'.
Training, to kill and be killed.
How proud these men are, those who see value in corrupting the lives of their young in the same way their lives have previously been corrupted.
"Seeking to raise warriors."
It is little wonder our world has known nothing other than war for all of our past recorded history. Raised to fight, fall, to kill and be killed - for a country. For an arbitrary piece of divided ground which they were born onto. For an ideology. And taught to feel a deep sense of attachment and belonging towards it. So proud and so attached, they willingly kill and are killed for this limited 'security', which is nothing other than an insecurity for our entire world.
Think about this; a piece of arbitrary ground.
If parents deeply loved their children, there would be no camps such as this in the world.
The identification to an educated ideology would appear to have superseded the need to act responsibly in the interests of the lives of our children. Ukrainian or Russian, Chinese or American, Israeli or Palestinian, these are all the children of humanity. Our children.
In truth, no ‘Ukraine’ nor a ‘Russia’ actually exists, outside of our thinking and language, and accepted educated longstanding historical beliefs and prejudice. In truth, NO country exists, outside an agreement in the imagination of us all. Yet how proud we are of our deeply ingrained, deeply programmed illusions, from which we live within and find false security here, where we project our alternative reality, to truth.
It is divisive nationalism which is greatly responsible for a thousand atomic weapons being carefully pointed at every single one of humanities newborn this day. It is divisive nationalism which is at source, the root cause of practically every war. It is divisive nationalism which has wasted practically all of our resources, in what we have tactfully named defence, but which in truth is just an excuse to kill our brothers and sisters, calling themselves different pointless names, aligned and feeling proud to another set of ideologies, waving our little coloured divisive rags on bank holidays.
Coloured rags, which later adorn a wooden box.
Brits do this, Americans love this, Russians are doing it, China too. The important colour to China is red, to Ukraine, it is blue and yellow, and now, tragically, turning red also. A different, deeper red. The colour of the blood of the sacrificed citizens of an historical pointless ideology.
The Ukrainian people used to be Russian, but now, they are Ukrainian. And so they fight. Countries live, grow and die, as human beings do, but they never truly live, these are conceptual arrangements we are born and educated to feel a sense of belonging towards, or a sense of repugnance against. And the belonging and the repugnance are the two sides present on the very same coin.
We presumably continue to live in divided nations because we feel a sense of security in belonging to a larger group of people. We never seem to notice that we are all doing this, and the divisons between our groups are the root source cause of all war between our people. It would seem a universal law, that when humanity divides, conflict will certainly follow. And we are divided at every level of our society. Divisions of wealth, status, class, religion, politics and nationality, to name a few, blight our world this day.
Many Polish people still hold a deep mistrust towards the German and Russian nations, and little warm feeling, I am certain, comes from the opposing direction. Based on happenings in the second world war. All due to past historical national forays and attempts of one divided culture, to spread its wings and conquer another. It seems not to matter that the people alive today are no longer the same people, all are different human beings. The name of the offending country carries the blame, and is firmly passed down in seemingly infinite memory. Every child born and educated into this traditional sense of belonging, sees a potential enemy, on both sides of the fence.
We never grew out of tribalism. Pardon the French above, sometimes one needs to find a word adequate and passionate enough to convey an inner level of repugnance at the collective monumental level of our collective stupidity.
How insane are we, that we think we find security, spending practically all our dwindling resources in threats and acts of war against each other? Do we really think this brings security to our lives? Are we Insane? I think we must be.
Build larger, better, nuclear weapons, with which to destroy our planet with a billion times over.
That really must make us all feel so secure.
It matters not that we starve to death, let’s just have enough bombs. Half a million dollars each one, it is easy to see that what we think of about ourselves and what we truthfully are, are very differing pictures. If we have the guts to look. For as we love to live on our little divided pieces of land, as we love to wave our coloured little rags, we love to go to war to attack others doing the same and now, how we love to kill the children of men. Our own children.
Calling them 'the enemy'.
How many of our young have died in only our past century? How many through the corridors of recorded time? How many resources burnt and destroyed, seeking security, and never finding any? How many mothers have wept uncontrollably at the gravesides of their sons, taken from this world too young, in this world which finds its security in such pointless and unnecessary divisions? A world which programs each child to find security in identifying to one of these unnecessary divisions, based arbritrarily on the geographical location of birth?
We seem to think we find security in our divided little group. Or our divided big group, it does not matter, a division, is a division. And another does the same. We name our land, we build our armies, we paint our flags and we build our bombs. And the other does the same. We attack and defend, and war and kill, and the other does the same. And we all live in a constant state of terror.
To defend a piece of ground against an attacker, is to attack an attacker. If attacking is so bad, then why is defence being justified? Attack and defence, both kill our people. The only good war is a war which has ended, and it takes two to tango on this planned, yearly contributed and forecast event of mass death, so why do we defend? Why do we prolong the agony?
If one group of us behaves like an ass, attacking another why do we feel justified, to behaving equally ass-like in defence?
Is it because we feel a sense of pride in such absolute stupidity as an allegiance to a piece of ground? Is it because we have aligned our identity with the name given to that piece of ground?
Look at these children above, were they born for this kind of life? Were they? Is this what life intended? Us against them, me against you, such inner feelings of pride, aggression, defence, nationalism, violence. For what exactly? For who? And at what cost? What are we turning our world into? And for whose benefit?
We are killing our children in a pointless historical division forever continued among our people, by virtue of corrupting brain destroying programming, passing as education. Divided, in a search of security within a little piece of named ground, against the rest of humanity. Eternally divided. A division which has cost more lives than all of the illnesses we have ever faced, or ever will, man-made, or natural. We have created a totally dystopian society.
Why do we not see that this mode of ‘seeking security’, is what brings insecurity to our world?
Need we live this way?
Are we not one people? Are we not humanity?
We are so divided on every level. Yet, under our thinking, we are one. We have the same nature, the same consciousness, although it has certainly lived dividedly, and we have certainly always warred.
Do you know what causes this? Is it not educated thought?
Are we not trained to this rot?
At a very young age, a stench filled historical stupidity is repetitively fed into our consciousness. We, are the best. We are the fairest. We have the right. We have the might. Our country, our religion, our class, our groups, are the only ones we need be concerned about. We are the succesful, we are the conquerors, we shall never, ever, ever be slaves, we are the land of the free.
We have bombs, we may have little food, but we have guns and bullets. We have armies and tanks and planes and ships and technology which makes you want to cry. Robotic armies are on their way.
Today, we have young indoctrinated men by the billion, ready to die for a divisive ideology, "communism", or "democracy, "left, right or centre." We are ‘our ‘people, and ‘they’ are theirs. And never the divided shall meet.
Brainwashed, all of us, as those above, have been brainwashed. As every patriot, in every country, has been brainwashed. As every nationalist, has been brainwashed.
Have you been brainwashed?
We are one people, with differing past histories, and we value these remembered past histories and traditions, dogmas, beliefs and cultural differences, obviously far more than we value our relationship together as one humanity, peace, and the stopping of all conflict on this wonderful planet.
Stopping the unnecessary deaths of our children.
Do we not care for our children? If not, why not?
Is the continuity of a divisive ideology of national or religious, or class based division, of more importance than the actual, factual security of our children’s lives? Than the security of our people on this unnecessarily broken apart planet?
We are time bound to our educated pasts, identified to these limited pasts, and so we never escape the animosity we carry towards other races, memories carried, passed down the long line of infinite time through the corridors of our blood washed histories. A result of past tragic aggressive actions taken, by one group of people seeking to profit in some way, through the despicable act of attacking another. Which would be impossible if they were one people. And you know the crazy thing? Out-with of a name, and our divided pasts, which differ, yet which are dead, as all pasts are, of course - we are the same. We are one race.
We think ourselves cultured, yet in truth, we are barbaric. We are as barbaric this day as we were when we rose to hit each other over the head with clubs and stones. Only this day, we are so much more advanced.
Now we can vaporise our entire populations with the push of a button.
How we have progressed.
Do you see how dangerous it is to feel identified to a nation? Do you truly see it? Like you see the room you are sitting within this very moment? Do you see it as you would see a big bus travelling at speed towards you on a road? What action do you take in such vision?
You jump out of the path of the oncoming bus.
Of course. You will jump out of the illusion of patriotism, nationalism and living within all divisions, if you see the danger these pointless movements have forever brought to our world. It is staring you in the face.
Were you aware that in the past 6,000 years of recorded history, we have recorded 6,000 wars? War seems synonymous to living as a human being. Our race, is an eternally suffering race, because, for all our progress in this world, for all the wonders of all of our technology, we have never yet understood and ended what bring us repetitively to kill each other on a battlefield.
When you see danger, you act.
We do not see the danger, because we think we are finding security in strengthening our little piece of ground. Or of clinging to our educated belief. We find security in what divides us and what divides us kills us. And the evidence is everywhere today and everywhere in the past and will be everywhere in our imaginary future also, for unless we change, and change is only possible now, for we can only act now, we will keep on repeating the very same eternal divisive mistakes.
On every level and in every division.
Division is toxic to our lives, because division, which requires at least two, is the required number for any conflict to begin, and in conflict, we die. We always have, and we always will, until we can learn to live undivided lives.
Where are our divisions held?
In our educated knowledge based consciousness.
No 'nation' truly exists, out-with of an agreed historical and illusory educated concept, this is educated belief and continuity of historical educated projections. Tribal living, we have evolved tribally. Our traditional religions work in similar fashion, as does class based society, Royalty and plebs. All bring us equally to the same level of division. And inevitably, to injustice, a loss of fair play, and war.
That which divides us kills us. This, appears to be a universal law.
Can we end divisions? Which is the very same question as this: can we stop thinking dividedly? Because all our divisions, are held in the differences in our daily remembered and projected thinking, which is based in knowledge educated and stored from past remembered experiences. Can we die to living in this inner past? Can we come to value this moment and our lives, and this world, and each other, more than pointless educated and traditional past ideologies which have always led us to bloody war?
If we can’t then why don’t we all just jump off a massive cliff right now? Hold hands and end this pointless stupidity of pretending we are cultured, when in truth, we are absolute monsters.
What is the point of all of this 'progress', of all this 'invention', of all this 'profit' and 'power' and dictatorship and hope for a good world which never has transpired in thousands of years of living dividedly in permanent and mind rotting fear? What is the point in living at all if the best we can do is repetitively come to inevitably cry rivers of tears at the graveside of our own tragically ended children’s young lives?
See the danger, deny the curse. Deny division. Stop progress - for our progress today is divided.
And divisive progress is a certain recipe for war.
How can we possibly think we are a progressive race of people, when what we build, is inevitably torn apart, by ourselves? By other human beings calling themselves different names? As a race, if we could end conflict, we are living in quite a different society. A society of care. A society of ongoing benefit, to us all. To every one of us. Why have we never given our interest and dedication to understanding, so ending conflict, and ending this continuing deep sorrow for our race? Is it that we continue to be hypnotised by a false sense of security in securing the divisions between us, by building more bombs?
We are working against each other, divided as we are, as we always have. If we continue to 'progress', we are aiming for the end of our species. Because we will come to war, if we continue to live so dividedly.
If we see the danger, we will act. And cease to support anything which divides us as a race of people. This includes, but is not limited to, religions, politics, race, class, social status, nationalism, ideologies. Names and groups and words and images and memories and beliefs and attachments and ideas and pasts and futures and wealth and all authority.
Look no further than Davos for a huge chasmic division appearing in the lives of collective humanity today.
The penultimate example of the danger of divisions among men. This one this century is financial, political and Royal and highly self interested. Every bit as dangerous as national, religious or political, or class divisions which have continuously plagued our race for thousands of years. We have never learned the absolute danger of living dividedly.
We actually think it brings our lives to security.
Divisions kill us because a division is needed for conflict and divisions always end in conflict. Divisons between us arise in our society from our educated thinking and attachments to concepts past, which are not real.
Only our thinking keeps them alive. Stop moving forwards until we find out how truly to live together.
Or we are doomed.
Life could be so much easier, were we to find the possibility of change. If change, is possible.
Have you ever asked?
We know we need to change. Change demands an ending to how we have always lived. We cannot continue our same divided pattern, as Davos men are doing, and expect to miraculously find a new world. We need end the order which came before, which is authoritarian, which is a division among men. How can we possibly find a world of peace, if the leaders of this world of chaos, division, and conflict, are who are seeking to build it? Do you see how insane we are? Look at our leaders this day. They bring wars to our lives, and still we follow them. Because we live in the past, which is thinking, and we are clueless as to how we might come to revolutionise our lives.
The only time to act, is now. We can only therefore change now. Planning to change, is to continue that which needs to change. Change demands the death, or ending, (same thing), of what came before.
Can you free yourself from all unneeded psychological inner bondages and divisions?
Can you cease to belong to anything at all?
Can you live your life without the comforting blanket of an attachment to an educated ideological security? Can you stand naked, alone, and so all one? Can you be totally responsible for your own life? Can you find a true foundation for your life, which does not periodically demand the killing of another human being’s child? Can you cease to accept this barbarically divided life we are living this day?
Can humanity meet without a divisive and so conflicting past?
Free, from that which brings us to willingly kill each other. Free, from what this day, we call ourselves.
We are what needs to change.
But first we must learn the nature of what we are. For how can we change, without first seeing and understanding completely, that which needs to change?
You will find it within the patterns of your incessant thinking.
Hello to all, I am a 60 year old man who has spent the best part of his life studying the teachings of J.Krishnamurti. My name is Henryk. I am rather unimportant, although what I talk about on these pages, has great importance. Particularly today, in this dark world, led by men of infinite wealth, unfortunately without the intelligence to match. My work here stands on the shoulders of that of J.Krishnamurti. Without this man's passion and great life understanding, this website would never have existed. His effect on my own life has been immeasurable. A man of infinite vision and wisdom, who spent over 60 years of his life travelling the world and discussing life and societal problems. Krishnamurti passed away in the 1980s. Anyone interested in the nature of discussion in the content of this site, will likely find great interest in the work of Krishnamurti. Hundreds of videos may be found on YouTube. There is a link above dedicated to his work to which new content is planned to be regularly added. The beauty of truth in life, is that it is identical for each one of us. Truth is the place we all come to meet in unity. And truth belongs to no man. Only pointless opinions, divisive, traditional, educated into and gathered by us, may be claimed as ownership. The change in our world so desperately needed this day, is within us, not external to our lives. All man's actions begin in the area of human thinking, it is this needs understood and brought to revolution. Thanks for taking the time to visit, a few posts are being added to the site weekly at the moment, when I find time. If you would like to support the work here, you can do so from the price of a cup of coffee each month, contributors are invited to online discussions. If you would like to contribute, our Patreon page may be found at the following address: www.patreon.com/rainbow_warriors.
