It seems when we ask what principles and values rule the world we can see debt as one of the most bizarre of those that are dehumanizing societal constructs. Where does it come from? Ahhh... that is where it gets interesting. Where does it go? Ahhh.... where it comes from. What does it do? ... more of the same.
Unlike its counterparts, debt 'demigods' make resources disappear. First it does so by claiming its deified status of declaring what is and is not resource; this psychopathic maneuver, thus creaties a assertion of SCARCITY then, in wiggly fingered sleight of hand, essentially asserts that having already been deified to create scarcity, it must deign to 'beneficently' (ahem) CONTROL access.
On the social control level it does the same thing: scribbling the 'law' to CONTROL of who is and who is not recognized as a human being with a soul. Of all inhuman degenerate assertions, that tops the list and condemns the construct from A to zed.
In the mean time the constant hammering of terrorization, strictures, divide and conquer ideologies, generates what? The societal equivalent of financial debt. Massive voids torn in the social fabric. And, in that this psychopathic construct anchors its premises of "principles" with the dissociative premise that all it surveys is not part of nature, we have direct experience of precisely how deep its shit is.
So then what principles DO rule the world? The absolute necessity of a diversity of principles present in any human grouping that takes responsibility for, loves, cherishes beyond self, the magnificent creation that so far exceeds our language capacities. Hence the eternal strength of humility that wise people from countless societies have, of necessity, utilized poetry to approach what cannot be seen but shapes our every waking and dreaming moment..
