A law is a reference to what is. What is is everything that exists, which essentially is nature. We find ourselves in a reality which we can explore by asking questions (in thought, language and motion).
The belief in a political system, such as a government; the investment of one’s volition and will into a cultural ritual as such, with it’s loyal employee bureaucrats and police forces; all of the implementers and enforces of the rituals doctrines, takes the power away from the individuals that constitute the collective “society”.
If we delegate our will (the power to act, to act in accordance with nature, preferably) to people that we do not know, based on their rhetoric; we resign our active participation with reality and commit ourselves to the order of the illusion and belief. In this illusion, our representatives pose problems to us and explain and assure how they will solve these problems, problems which are basically logistic impossibilities brought about by the fact that “common” people are not supposed to solve problems with critical by cooperating, but by trusting people they do not know, by approving of them taking positions of power in a system (an abstraction) which represents us all solving problems through critical thinking and rational cooperation.
The base is we all want to survive, and that is best achieved by serving nature, for she is our common source of life. So if we cooperate, we can achieve this more effectively than if we compete. It’s not about forcing people into a system, which basically is a limit on human imagination and conduct, but rather it’s about freeing our minds through learning etc.
A system is not a bad thing, given that it is based on reality. What is more suitable to problem solving is a method based on or faculties for perceiving reality, the trivium method. When a system is defined by words, and thus limit reality by defining how it is to be percieved, conceptualized and dealt with, and people are given positions of responsibilty, i.e. freedom, i.e. “power” within that system, to enforce the system, which is regarded as reality (it is the vicarious abstraction for reality) then irrationality and insanity ensues.
The positions of power attract people who seek power, and the system becomes alive, with a survival instinct, and means to survive, through public belief, budgets, enforcers, etc. The “common” people are excluded from active problem solving, both legally obstructed, both indoctrinated into trusting and subordinating to the system (which is a belief, an abstraction) and hence:
the frustration amongst the public that builds from the inevitable failure of such unreal conditions to successfully deal with reality in a constructive, effective way, spills out and divides the people. The frustrations manifest in blame, negative energy being excreted through schims; segregation; “race”, class, neighborhoods, cultures, ages, sexes, etc.
At the top crushing down on our minds we have this belief structure, materialized in a certain human organizaton, which is not based on direct interaction with reality, nature, and intent to solve the problems honestly and logically, rationally. So under the yoke of this, in the larger picture self imposed constriction of our minds, the frustration builds up and divides us. We begin to separate into factions, tribes, cultures, and dehumanize others, seeking reasons to blame others for the problems around us. The system is still in place, and still has the potential to be used, changed to humanity’s benefit, for it only represents our state of ability to solve problems; to think critically. But instead the frustration-induced populism gathers enough support so dehumanizing, blame oriented fix-parties are formed and voted in, never really addressing the big problem: our limited perception of what is happening, the trickling of irrationality thanks to the system percieved as legitimate interface with reality.
Organization and cooperation are potentially great modalities of human behaviour, if they are rooted in reality they can serve us all. Why should your neighborhoods needs and problems be relayed to a government that doesn’t have roots there? Sure if you have a representative, maybe they can speak for you, there is nothing wrong with that, but then you and the representatives have crossed the threshold from reality into the world of construced abstraction and you should be aware and wary of this, for it has the tendency to corrupt your perception of what is happening and why and how to deal with it.
I believe that humans, i.e. the human mind has the ability to solve problems. I also believe that learning by asking questions and honestly seeking truth garners the best results for us to work with. That means that if we are allowed and encouraged to develop our faculties of sense, perception, identification, contextualization and formulation we can amongst us find not only a greater understanding of what is happening around us and why and how, but also how to move forward in contructive ways. There is no need for a dysfunctional system as we have now, based on belief, trust in strangers with alterior motives, which attracts numb-mindedness and psychopathic expliotation. Which is invested with the peoples willpower and then oppressing them with their own power, which is now captive of an illusion given life by humans enacting it through their actions in accordance with the definitions of it. Even if there is no malintent, the system is flawed in that it does not directly deal with reality, but redefines it through its corrupted equivalent to grammar, logic and rhetoric. By pledging allegiance to an illusion, to a limitation of human organizational ability we condemn ourselves to misery.
The Law is but a reference to what is, why and how that is.
