The Age of Aquarius

"We must stay true to the old ways, tradition, and hold back the tide of progress."

On the contrary, let us do away with the old ways, the days of Hate and Disagreement.  Let us herald in Harmony and Understanding, Sympathy and Trust.  Let us be led into no more Falsehoods or Derisions.  Each of us living golden dreams of visions, mystic revelations, allowing everyone the mind's true liberation...

By that I mean that each of us should be granted a renewed sense of freedom and liberty by truly embracing what these words mean.  We should begin to truly hold a solemn duty to the Health and Security of one another.  There are individuals aplenty in this world, without proper food, clothes, shelter, or health care.  This new age affords us the opportunity to accept new levels of equality and security for all.  This is our future.  We need but step forward and embrace it.

Let us end the old world's grasp on our society.  Let us loose the chains of traditional oppression.  Let us embrace the idea of better days through better ways.  Let us shed these skins of old and become a new version of ourselves.  

Our time to become more is now.

"It is not about guns, it is about the COMPLETE lack of Health (mental) Care, in this country!"


  1. Complete lack of mental health care? I believe that the issue is quality of mental health services, not lack of. 1 in 10 Americans is currently taking some form of psychotropic medication. That figure increased 400 percent between 2005-2008. New England Journal of medicine reported that 46 percent of Americans have been diagnosed with some type of mental disorder. In my opinion, it's not very comforting to know that almost half my country is mentally disturbed. I would expect that to be a red flag and that someone might ask, ' Why are Americans so unhappy, so depressed, so anxious and so violent?' Perhaps we are seeking too much fulfillment outside of ourselves with material goods and hence, abandoned our spiritual needs and desires.

    Every school shooter was receiving mental health services and medication, every mass shooting and the majority of uncharacteristic homicides involved perps who were receiving mental health service and medication ( including the war veterans who committed homicides). My point being that a lack of mental health service was not the case in these monumental tragedies.

    I think the problem may be that we are too focused on medications and not behavioral modification therapy. People with circumstantial anxiety and depression need to learn healthy coping skills, not be drugged into a zombie state of tolerance.

    Texas is the home of the Texas Medication Algorithm Project where children as well as adults were targeted by mental health workers to be guinea pigs for psychotropic medications.

    1. First, thank you so much for taking the time to offer this comment. I very much appreciate your doing so.

      That said, I am not sure diagnosis counts as health care. I know of at least one person who has threatened a government office with violence, and has been diagnosed. However, when he stops his medication, because he's feeling better...things go bad, very bad, for him and his family. What he needs is monthly monitoring.

      As for what or who 'usually' does these shootings...have you ever noticed that it is never the head cheerleader, the quarterback, or even someone in the band. It is the loner or tiny group who always considered themselves outsiders looking in on a world that excluded them. What we lack as a society is a limit to otherizing people to make ourselves feel better. Instead of everyone have enough leg and arm space on a plane, they jam most of them together like sardines, while 15% pay an outrageous prices to ride like kings. To ignore the animosity between business and coach is detrimental.

      While I am not calling here for complete equality communism or socialism, I think we need to start thinking more 'us & we' and less 'they & I'...'
