The death of a cat

caring for living things

Satanists celebrate life.

They say we Satanists hurt animals and have no feelings for the lives of living things, in reality Satanists love life, and the lives of living things.

I lost a friend today, a cat.  Of the millions of cats in this world, it was my special cat, my friend, and to the mind of this cat, I was the favourite human in its life.  I knew the cat four years, it was semi-feral, a rescue cat that as a kitten had been booted out of its home to live outside in the raw elements because the family were concerned about cat diseases impacting their new-born baby.  At nine months old it had a litter of kittens, way too young, that impacted its strength, and lived half its life mistreated and neglected.  The cat to the end of its life prefered the outside, forced indoors only when the weather was cold and wet.

As I have Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD) relationships are never easy, it is difficult to keep my focus and motivation on relationships which are generally boring but require a lot of effort to maintain.  Most people give up on me, but this cat was persistent, never taking no for an answer, it went the extra mile, and established itself as part of my life.

My relationship with the cat was challenging, the cat would easily get upset, I was always complaining about it.  Grumpy, annoying, it would often try to sit on my computer or business paperwork when I was trying to work, it damaged one computer.  Always begging me for food, dribbling, throwing up, sharing its fleas with me, cat hair everywhere, and bringing in mud all over my paperwork.  Very demanding for attention, always at the wrong time.  It pushed me beyond despair.  Many were the sieges and battles of will that we had.

The Satanic ideal that the individual is the overall master in their life, was seriously undermined by this cat.  Only twice did I shout at the cat, to protect fledgling birds, and when it damaged a computer.  In 15 years of life, the four years of my association with this cat must have been a happy time for it, I went out of my way to look after the needs of the little creature.

Today, I lost my friend.  The cat had cancer, it was put to sleep.  I am distraught.  It is like a light went out in my life.  The needs of the cat was simple: food; warmth; comfort; grooming.  We who have ADD/ADHD find it challenging to give attention to other living things, because they are not interesting enough, but this cat worked with single-minded focus to break through my barrier to satisfy its simple needs, despite my resistance and complaints.  The cat became part of my life journey.

The Satanic path is a lonely path, but for four years, I had this cat on the journey.  Now I am alone, the cat is gone.  I have no regrets, I and the cat had a fruitful time together.  I will care for no other animal or cat again, ADD/ADHD people such as I do not have the focus or motivation needed to care adequately for living things.  If there is one thing I shall take with me as I move forwards alone, it is the memory of a persistent cat that never took no for an answer, to apply that attitude to my own life, especially against my own private hell that is ADD/ADHD.

Attack on Satanic Temple HQ in Salem USA

satan-statue

Satanic Temple HQ in Salem USA has been attacked leading to an arrest.

Further from my post yesterday on Tweets encouraging attacks on Satanic Temple property which unjustly caused the suspension of the Lucien Greaves Twitter account, someone apparently has acted upon the calls to attack Satanic Temple HQ in Salem leading to property damage and an arrest.

 

Lucien Greaves on Facebook said:

“Today a man came to our headquarters in Salem smashing one of our outlet covers and apparently looking for a way inside. When we confronted him, he threatened us with what appeared to be a sharpened screwdriver. He is now in custody.

Of course, this comes only a day after news outlets reported upon my Twitter ban, noting that my ban is result of my outcry against Twitter’s refusal to take action upon direct threats to the Salem TST headquarters property. I have no way, right now, of knowing what directly inspired this man’s actions today, but I do know that when threats of violence against us seem to have the sanction of social media mega-giants, delusional would-be heroes against an imaginary Satanic Cult Conspiracy are likely to feel emboldened. When the public is aware that threats of violence against The Satanic Temple are not considered “real” threats, merely because of who we are, should we be surprised if some people come to believe that actual violence against us is perfectly acceptable?”

Satanic Temple leader Twitter account suspended

satanic_temple

Twitter is apparently indulging in religious discrimination against Satanic Temple after suspending a leader Twitter account for complaining about calls to burn down a Satanic Temple building.

Lucien Greaves a leader of the Satanic Temple recently had his Twitter account suspended in what many observers feel is in unjust circumstances.

A former child actor Corey Feldman who has taken on the role of a witch hunter with a particular hostility to Satanists, retweeted a call to burn down a Satanic Temple building in Salem USA. Lucien Greaves challenged Feldman over his tweet and asked fellow Satanists to report any content of religious hatred against Satanism to Twitter.  For some reason Twitter suspended Greaves when he complained about religious hatred, and his Twitter account remains suspended at time of writing.

Satanic Temple quickly put out a press release condemning Twitter for religious discrimination, threatening legal action.  Greaves and Satanic Temple say that they acted within the Twitter terms and conditions, there being no legitimate reason to suspend the account, especially as they are the victims of threat and abuse.  Some news media such as Fox followed up the story, Twitter refused to comment on why the Twitter account was suspended.

The suspension of the Greaves Twitter account for what appears to be no legitimate reason is in sharp contrast to the blind acceptance by Twitter of President Trump whose tweets are racist, hateful, abusive and pushes America ever closer to world war.

Another contrast is the Twitter account known as @drifloud who has been targeting children, their families and other innocent people with harrassing and abusive tweets of a Satanic Ritual Abuse theme, a discredited fiction, that continues to violate the privacy of children since 2015.  Despite dozens of abuse reports to Twitter, the social media company does nothing about @drifloud.  This writer has made a recent further referral of the account to Twitter to test their new moderation processes before moving the matter up to a political and legal level.

Twitter is in the opinion of this writer the worst social media company in dealing with abuse and harrassment, but is slowly being forced by political, legal and advertising pressures to take action against abuse on its platform.  It remains to be seen what will happen over the suspended Satanic Temple Twitter account, although it is clear that there is a long way to go before social media companies such as Twitter get their moderation processes sorted out.

Wishing my readers an amazing 2018

Have an amazing 2018.

This blog will be back in action over the next couple of months, but slowly at first, as demands in the real world restricts my time to blog.

One goal this year, do ten amazing things each day that benefit me.

If strategy is focussed on increasing options and opportunities with each deed, avoiding the opposite, the individual will be half way there to having a successful year.

I wish everyone an amazing 2018.

North Korea: start of WW3?

Gary Markstein / Cagle Cartoons

Is it me that lives in La La land, or everyone else? As the North Korea crisis escalates, most of the population, the media and politicians go about life as if nothing is happening.  Yet, I am watching developments in North Korea, I am worried, even if nobody else cares.

North Korea has played the strategy of threats, noise and exaggeration before, they are the master of the art of propaganda on a vast scale.  However, unlike previous occasions that leaders humoured the North Koreans with concessions, so they can march away from the table claiming a great victory, until the next “crisis”, now North Korea deals with Trump, who does not compromise, is motivated to military action, won’t give ground.  This time the North Koreans find themselves in a corner, if they back down, they lose face, so they escalate their strategy, and so does Trump.

Now Trump has moved three carrier strike groups against North Korea, the top assassination team that took out Bin Ladin, state-of-the-art submarines, fighter jets, B52’s and anything else he can move to the table that is the latest technology and new.  Trump is not bothering with negotiating with the North Koreans, he seems keen for a fight.

Trump does not understand North Korea, or China, or the rules of how this crisis can be resolved, he plays his own game by his own rules.  Trump thinks perhaps a little war with North Korea might take domestic pressure off himself, win himself support from the voters.  Trump is blind to the horror that he is creating for himself and this world.

North Korea would rather go to war than lose face, Trump wants a war, and so a war is likely.  It can take weeks before USA and its allies can muster enough forces to deal with North Korea in event of war, but war can move fast, a million North Koreans can move into South Korea inside a day. North Korea can kill a million South Koreans in one day with its massed artillery.  North Korea can immediately deploy atomic, biological and chemical weapons against USA and its allies.  North Korea can immediately put into the field millions of blindly loyal and well-trained soldiers, who will slaughter everyone, and destroy everything in their path.

USA will face having to fight North Korea in South Korean cities, towns, villages and countryside.  By the time the North is defeated in the South, there will be nothing left of South Korea.  The fight against North Korea won’t be like Syria, Iraq and Libya with steady safe airstrikes with their pretty visuals to impress dumb reporters and consumers, it will be brutal, urgent hand-to-hand fighting, with USA and their allies taking casualties running into tens of thousands.  Sensitive public who dislikes a few dozen dead American soldiers, won’t like the scale of deaths that will rapidly mount up.

North Korea has amongst the best hackers in the world, so all internet communications will become destroyed or disrupted.  North Korean agents can deploy biological weapons into cities such as anthrax and smallpox.  An atomic bomb could be exploded over the USA in the atmosphere wiping out all electronics and electricity grid.  The US carrier groups could be instantly destroyed by nuclear weapons.  North Korea is ruthless and prepared to destroy themselves and the entire world in a war.

North Korea is trolling Trump and the USA in the hope they strike first or gives them concessions.  If USA strikes first, China enters the war on the side of North Korea.  China shares a border with North Korea and their military will enter into North Korea to defend it against any attack from USA and its allies.  USA and thus allies such as UK will be forced to declare war on China.  A number of nations in Africa, Middle East and South America will ally with North Korea and China.  Russia will support China and North Korea.

Economically the world is fragile, a war of the scale of North Korea will cause a collapse in all money markets.  Imagine disrupted food and fuel supplies, collapsed communications, mass civil disorder.  A few exploded nuclear bombs can poison atmosphere, land and water, and disrupt the climate.

The leading headlines in the media now: JFK files and sexual harassment by various public figures.  Meanwhile, most people proceed with their mundane lives indifferent and ignorant to events playing out that could destroy the human race.
