Recently, amongst a group of people I know, events have happened and issues surfaced that have brewing for quite some time now. As an observer and not a participant, I merely watched, but felt compelled to post this
, to vent how how saw these goings on. Nevertheless, I was pretty polite in doing so.
I can't be arsed being polite anymore.
SO, basically, this group of otherwise highly intelligent, energetically connected people who claim to be above all the usual shit and shenanigans that humans have done in the past thousands of years, are acting like a BUNCH OF FUCKING RETARDED REPRESSED BITCHY SCHOOLKIDS IN A HIGH SCHOOL PLAYGROUND.
Forming cliques, bitching amongst themselves, power-jostling, and excluding those who dare to argue or respond to an intellectual debate with opinions others don't like, all in the guise of intellectualist debate.
It reminds me a bit of the splintering of the Church into different denominations. Did that get Christianity anywhere? Hell no. Basically the creation of dogma and then arguments over what exactly that dogma should be divided the church into all the factions we see today. This is like this group of people...a movement, a thing that could have grown to be something beautiful and strong has been shattered and splintered like glass by arguments over definitions, petty feuds, and the inability of people to get over themselves.
Ok, I know this is all pretty simplistic. I know there are heaps of factors I'm not aware of, as i'm not privy to all of the going ons as I don't fit their classification of 'evolved', 'OtherKind' or whatever other labels they've chosen to paste on themselves.
In fact, I'm rather happy about that. I'm glad not to categorised and sub-categorised. Anybody try to label and I'll...I'll....ehh I'll get back to that. :) I've spent too much of my life hiding behind labels both I placed on myself and allowed others to paste onto me. I know exactly who and what I am now. What I will become I don't know, but it seems it would be better to take that journey alone than to get involved in the apparent shit that has broken and divided the unity and journey of these other people who claim to be the shitz nitz of evolution.... ;)
note - incidently, I'm well aware that the last couple paragroups could be seen as (and may well be) petty resentment... but, eh. I try the best I can, but I don't claim to be perfect. :P
