And experiencing all feelings completely, I argue, is precisely what every human culture in the past has committed itself to preventing. They had to. We today are different. We’re living at the climax of life on Earth. We no longer have to keep ourselves from experiencing our feelings. But we do anyway. And we use hosts of aids and techniques to “relieve”–i.e. suppress–feelings that present the slightest discomfort. And we give each other enormous support for doing it. An ethos of feelings suppression permeates our surroundings and comes at us from virtually everything that talks.

From “Remembering Michael Jackson”:
“….All of this got me to thinking about culture’s double-fuck on us all:
The first function involves the way cultures “welcome” babies into the world. The cultural kneecapping we receive at the start serves to keep us manageable and usable and from not soaring or being free, therefore unusable as an economic resource.
It does this, first, in its brutally separating us from our source of life, guidance, and inspiration and creating a blank slate at birth, which would otherwise have been a map of life, with contact numbers directly to God and technical assistance angels — a kind of Jacob’s Ladder for when the going got rough; then, culture tells you to be an individual and aspire to greatness and puts up examples of people who have done so and made a difference for their society and the world; and then culture punishes severely any one who is exceptional and shows it and/or strives to do exactly as the cultural teachings were inspiring him or her to do.
And the question was, why would culture be structured that way, and why would people hate exactly those kinds of people that would most likely be the ones set up for future generations to learn from? And the answer follows from the basic sickness of the societal members, which as mentioned is caused by the double-binding culture.
So we have sick societies and cultures, and within them we strive, still, for authentic lives of richness of experience, truth, love, and connection with our spiritual roots of strength to be the unique person God intended, as well as awareness of the sacred map of our destiny, buried along with the source, which when found provides a felt inner compass that, if followed, daily brings us closer to God, more openness of feeling, and more desire for spreading love, joy, and for giving of oneself, and eventually brings us down the line directly to liberation — all of which must be done, fighting a culture and its sick members who want us to be anything, anything (that is like them) but not exceptional.
And, again, the contradictory or mind-fucking quality of the cultural tenets is seen in that it is only through people who defy and buck the soul-murdering immersion in the cultural bosom that culture improves, that people receive help for their sufferings, and that anything good greater than the average can come into the world….
So, in evaluating Michael’s message, I had to show what a contrast and example he was in relation to both cultural functions – the destruction of the individual self and then the immersion in the fake world and its substitute gratifications to keep us unaware of our double mind-fuck.
So that’s the dilemma of culture, that’s the mind-fuck, and that’s the buzz saw that Michael Jackson got sucked into in the end.”
