(Continuation of THE PERPETUAL GIFT,  Semanawak Part Five)

By Natalia Lucia Aguilar Gaona

Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty.

To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.

​​~Bertrand Russell

Narcissistic culture is built on entitlement, it is a never ending war against life, love and trust. Warping reality has not diminished our natural common sense, no amount of fake indignation posted on-line reports canceling "truth tellers" for fabricating conspiracy theories, or acolytes from sterile institutions proclaiming there is no "Writing on the wall," causally sipping a cup of cappuccino; promoting and embracing the next evolutionary mutation. Not to mention the social psychologists who prefer to regurgitate behavioral theories from the 1950’s, still secretly wish to control human emotions, now restate the same goals under different termonology, studies, graphics and statistics.


    These are all very happy campers digging new holes, inches away from the old ones; they are guaranteed a yearly grant to publish whatever make sense to them, betting that there is nobody who cares or is paying attention. These well-funded campaigns are perfectly calibrated to promoted for years if not decades "Idiological Garbage" their new terminology that will be bounce round till its part of  intellectual syllogism; Experts of illusion, confussement* and distraction. The fashionable phrases that inoculate the “uneducated” like; “Gender Equality” or “Bio- ethics” tame sounding verbs, a meticulous excuse to depolarized and paralize any health body.

Until recently most of us were unable to address the question;

Where does all this insanity come from?

Millions of people have learned to accommodate the rhetorical nonsense, after ten or fifty years of alcoholism, tobacco, or synthetic hormones, any kind of imposition sets in under the normalized illusion or the quest for immorality. Disrespect and free range degenerates all have a hundreds of excuses to permanently ignore repercussions, justify cannibalism and wag theft under the guise of business or their sacred bottom line.

   When our simple truth is; if we “can’t breathe” we die. If we can’t eat, we die. If we are poisoned by any means, we die slower but we still die. The gift is life; we’re born with the gift. Sacrifice is not a true gift; it is penitence, a notions enforced by parasites. Anything suppressing life destroys the gift and that is exactly what we need to stop; the delusion of control.

   Social engineering is not new, it has been prompted by visual artist in temples since the beginning of time, or scenes carved on castells walls or portable canvases the idealized visual depiction was replete with “product” placement or “subliminal” messages. Think of the oversized portrait of a bishop, a legendary king or a glorified battle. Story telling is a process by which most civilizations replicate "lifestyles" from one era to another. In these times artists are bought by parasitic hoarders, who misuse nostalgia to disguise their nasty habits.

   The calamity afflicting the world is not just violence and organized crime; it is human’s "wishful thinking", our embedded fantasies created to insulate oneself from another distorted “reality”, while starving and suffering from a fatal disease called life. There has always been a steering committee promoting emotional extortion ready to put the blame on someone. Old stories and ideas have been rewritten to appease public’s unrest, to keep them from investigating all the scams. Yet righteous anger has been always prohibited; “How dare does that none academic person, express disagreement”.


   Throughout history all kinds of institutions have been created to harbor the monsters of the “leisure class”. Within this parasitic leisure class there are three kinds of personality types; the “gorgeous,” the “witty” and the “agreeable.” Most people do not recognize that they are all parasites, and that is what makes them a monstrosity their empty and abysmal politeness.

   “The gorgeous,” in my findings; be it a man or a woman; whom love to demand favor from others, and without question we must give in instantly or they will annoyingly persist until we do so. That "gorgeous" person uses his looks, or her cuteness and sexual appeal to position themselves into a state of utter dependency or learned helplessness, prompting up the physical aspects of esthetics, they quickly insert their hooks into their victims by denying reality and limitingl access to any kind of relationship. Therefore, openly flirting with everyone while plucking (actually robing) money or property from here or there. These ugly retched cowards decide what is convenient and comfortable to be known, they turn exploitation into an exclusive act of staging.

    “The witty” are creatures garnered by society to live in intellectual realms; safeguarded enclosures resembling a “gilded cage” where they can bestow their bland peer reviewed circumlocution unrestrained for as long as they live. Many were rejected offspring of affluent people, who then need to compensate by exhibiting their mastery, competing to attain doctorate, after doctorate, eternally paying homage to the wittiest by regurgitating predigested advice to their stockholders and misguiding the local kleptocrats holding office. The strategies they supply are mostly incongruent "theories," ill conceived dogmas about the "infinite" that support the plundering of the planet and eliminating imaginary rivals. These are beasts that eat their offspring, it’s just an impulse to eliminate competition.

We animals naturally recoil from being obliterated, many will oblige to the demands of the “gorgeous” and others might be tricked into practicing the theories of the “witty.” But, undetected by our empathy; we assume that a wounded creature deserves a second chance at life. This is when the third and most dangerous of our enemies succeeds. Yes, the “agreeable” steps in; a unique kind of psychopathic parasite capable of fooling us all, they enjoy the suffering others and will immediately adapt and usurp any benign cause, they are irresponsible, highly opportunistic and simultaneously deny the insanity and of course all its consequences.


Most people of course don’t know they are slaves to the “agreeable,” wicked by proxy they would rather we don’t think or ask. They see themselves as harmless, incapable of idiocy, the degree of their hypocrisy traumatizes most children, who my become equally deranged. Yet doing the dirty work for the “gorgeous” and the “witty” is exactly what they do for a living.


The agreeable set up the honey pot and call out to the four corners of the earth; Come, come eat free delicious honey” to the future slaves, they cry and beg people to love their sudden urge for generosity. They nicely calculate the effects of showering us with attention, they “ask for our help and unconditional secrecy too! They promise that ‘we” will be handsomely rewarded for our much valued service. Perhaps, we may be given an accommodation as proof of their noble intentions. Remember the story of Hansel and Gretel? 

Fueled by the vanity of overrated actors that reined in the 1930’s a tiny part of downtown Los Angeles theater district. After that Southern California was for half a century enchanted by the celebrity culture, people all over the globe emulated the perverted European elites’ life style. The narrative of “rags to riches” zigzags in the minds of viewers, as a parade of ridiculous personas flaunted jewels, lavish wardrobes, hats or hairdos on the Hollywood fashion runways, billboards or magazines.


Cinematography made voyeurism a standard addiction; storytellers create a fictitious high society throughout the decades giving way to newer media; FM radio, television all infecting the minds of simple country folks that flocked to mega cities in search of the “American dream”. A perfect smoke screen, while the agreeable, the witty and the gorgeous swindled hard working people all over the planet, under the dogma of “Profits, prosperity and progress” the criminal idiotic notion of endless growth, laced with “economic theories” rose to a religious mantra.

Herds of aspiring couples, built homes to mirror their favorite movie sets, smoked the cigarettes and drank themselves to death. Induced social autism lowered real innovation and justified parental aloofness.  The over indulged lazy and ignorant scoundrels, lost a reason to be; to them life was one big party, to indulge in gambling, cocaine, heroin and alcohol. The people, towns or countries who complained or objected to the proliferation of the lowlife were prescribed pharmaceuticals, forced to live on credit, attacked viciously by ruthless gangs. Their children were saturated with synthetic drugs like crack or meth were in abundance. Two decades later in the divided states of slave-landia*, had turned into one big supermarket and a twenty-four hour none stop “entertainment” for unsatisfied adults.

It takes a certain kind of person to discard both the past and the future at the same time. Something is wrong when the priest of positive thinking insist that “everyone should live in the moment”.



Why is our cultural legacy a burden?


And when did it turn to garbage… is it because they refer to our experience as “baggage”.

The gift can only exist if we have a past, to be present for now and in the future.
