The Axis of Evil

by Stephanie Casher on June 2, 2006

Apologies for the delay in posting… A certain situation at work has been detonating all week and I’ve been consumed by the fallout. Truly nasty stuff. I hate politics. The lying, the corruption, the backstabbing. I’ve never been so up close and personal to such a blatant abuse of power before, and it is making me physically ill. I am amazed not just at the degree of shadiness, but the fact that the shadiness is on display for all the world to see and we are all powerless to stop it! This is a recurring theme I keep seeing everywhere — the battle of Good vs. Evil being played out on a variety of platforms… and for some reason Evil keeps winning over and over and over…

I’ve never considered myself an idealist (more realist/cynic than anything else), but I’ve always believed that the Truth was something that was sacred. You could spin it and try to cover it up, but the truth would always come out and, well, be the Truth.

“You can’t hide a liar from the truth…”
~ Miranda Lambert, “Love is Looking for You”

It amazes me that the scales of justice seem to be tipped dramatically in favor of Evil these days. There is something really off in the Universe that is allowing some terrible things to happen, and atrocious behavior to go unpunished. The truth seems to have lost its value, and people’s right to speak it compromised. I remember when The Celestine Prophecy was at the top of the NY Times Bestsellers list, and the masses seemed to be moving collectively in a positive direction. (There’s that 90’s Nostalgia again). We were moving towards the light, and then somewhere along the way we got sidetracked and have landed in a very dark place. And it’s only getting darker.

I saw another bumper sticker the other day (gotta love Santa Cruz) containing another priceless quote:

“If you are not outraged, you are not paying attention”

I couldn’t have put it better myself. Now what to do with all this rage…
