Outrage Without the Rage
Updated: May 15, 2021
"...means and ends must cohere because the end is preexistent in the means, and ultimately destructive means cannot bring about constructive ends."
Martin Luther King Jr.
My responsibility, as I see it, is to provide you, dear reader, with information, so that you have the freedom to choose and act based on informed consent.
As I began to examine our current covid culture of fear and dread, I felt overcome with a sense of injustice.
Perhaps because I’m a Libra, this is a particularly hard pill for me to swallow.
“It’s not right! It’s not fair!”
But I have had enough personal growth and spiritual awakening to know that fighting against something, resisting what you do not want, only exacerbates the situation.
Anger breeds anger.
Hate breeds hate.
No one understood this better than Martin Luther King Jr. who, following Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings, helped create a powerful civil rights movement based in love.
Not romantic love or Hallmark love, but agape - the love for humankind.
He encouraged his followers to embrace the idea of dignity, even for those who oppose you.
He stood not for hatred of white haters, but education of all detractors, expressing the desire to become brothers and sisters in our shared humanity.
And so I am transmuting my outrage at falsehoods to output of facts.
Instead of stifling resentment, I am shifting to compassionate sharing.
Or as one friend put it, I am expressing outrage without the rage.
I truly believe that most people who are expressing anger and practicing finger-pointing at those not following the current “rules” just don’t have all the information - or even access to the information to make informed decisions.
I wouldn’t, either, if my own necessary health research hadn’t led me to following health experts and scientists, rather than the mainstream media being fed information by vested interests.
And so, today, I offer this analytical and science-based talk from an organization called PANDA - Pandemics, Data & Analytics...
In this TED Talk-styled presentation, you'll learn the shocking and unscientific origin of the mainstream narrative of this supposedly "novel" virus.
If you feel moved to do something about this, or if you’d like to express outrage without the rage, please share.
Together, we can even build "the beloved community."
