All Our World Is Ripples!


The ‘end justifies the means’ Machiavelli’s axiom that was gleefully consumed by the powerful & that capitalism proudly lives by, is a ridiculous & mistaken denial of consequence. It leads to the desperation & violent terror of war on all its terrible scales & blindly guides our Titanic environmental collision.

Those who do whatever to get to their selected end are not the mature realists they praise themselves to be. They are actually the stereo typical character of a spoilt child who will destroy anything to get what they want to & hell with everyone else.

So what’s the alternative? How do we unravel the Gordian knot of consequences that people have tied & tangled up into our world with blind greed & self interest, with thinking bad actions will lead to good ends, with all of our division & co option economically & the gaining thru’ our fears cowardice a mistaken support for these supposedly inevitable national policy’s of  poverty & war?

Well, Alexander the Great famously just hacked & cut thru’ the Gordian Knot, but we cant hack & dispose of reality’s consequences because they live & enact in us all & the planet we are supported by. Our desired ‘ends’ are irrelevant to the consequences of our actions effect on Earth & reactions live in the hearts & minds of each other.

We have to follow a more mature philosophy that breathes peace & trust into all our relations & is based on reflecting on reality fairly & honestly, resulting everywhere in mutual understandings. That will find us a balance in our relations between one & an other. That will lead to our survival within the Earth’s environment.

It is a simple & old mirror philosophy I would say & it is probably the fundamental practical basis of all our religions & expressed by them each in some way or an other. We must try to treat others, as we would honestly & fairly like them to treat us. That’s it, this mirror philosophy’s idea is as simple as a home made compass, but leads us to calm unstoppable realisation of a revolution in every problem of our lives together. It founds a stronger society that will best reveal & resist all malevolences clearly & happily together. Our unique consciousness started when we looked in the water & saw ourselves objectively & subjectively at once. The cosmos is not blind energy & power it is conscious thru’ us. All life, exists in a reflection & balance between its left & right & between ourselves & our consequence reflected within our world.

Our ends don’t justify our means over time, in our shared world, the means we have used, inevitably reflect & define us & our choice of actions might mean the end of us!

All our world is ripples! Its time to grow up to consequence & believe in the true wit of a society’s multiple perspectives, harnessed to truly inform a better democracy. Vast private wealth enslaves society to un democratic misfortunes. Time to take out & use our own home made compasses!

She Rose In Consequence by Antonio Carty

She Rose In Consequence

I called this picture ‘She Rose’ as inevitably the Irish did rise & ripple with the tide of our individual multitudes to set us a chance to be free!

The means we used, to get our independence included violent action and we have lived out sad legacies of consequence from that, but the British Empire would not have let us go without that kick, unfortunately. A lesson in the consequence of the means of an empire’s end.

All our actions live out their rippling legacies of reactions in others and ourselves over time. The world is our mirror we can not escape its reflection. Do we revel in a reflection of our fear & aggression or let there bravely be a chance for mercy & new hope to grow, to not repeat injustice? We pay the price, so be sure its worth it! Our action’s share consequence, do not be bullied with your life’s will, be honest to your homemade compass when we try to treat others as we would true & fairly like them to treat us. To unravel the Gordian Knots of injustice’s consequence & grow to live together in a better world society!
