Who Can You Trust? When You Are Such An Internet-Autist That It Is Not Even Funny.

Standard

Of course I disagree with evil destabilisation plans, replacement migration into Europe or the U.S.A. etc; but whenever I come across Nazis (& then I mean real Nazis) online (because this is apparently where they hide) I’m amazed at how they take racial solidarity for granted … There have been many examples of white people betraying other white people, even aiding those who detest and loathe Western culture. One can certainly wonder when the people of The West will come together in order to do something that is beneficial to all, the same can be said of the African continent that has been (and is) plagued by inter-ethnic disputes and other parts of the world experiencing the same problems. Maybe I’m too obsessed with people getting the details right, and things being accurate, it must be easy to just fall into one box and stay there.

Why The Bible Is Dangerous & Why The Political Correctness Brigade Wants To Keep It Away From You.

Standard

Because it teaches the following, among other things:

  1. Strength & values gain respect – a society that is too liberal will see you conquered & enslaved.
  2. Mixing with other tribes will create identity confusion & will eventually water down the essence of your people – maybe even replace you.
  3. You should bend the knee to God & humble yourself, since natural powers are 10x greater than man can ever dream of being.
  4. You are faulty and have to work on yourself to become a better human.
  5. Rather than running to your government expecting them to solve all of your problems, treating politicians with incurable anger if they cannot; you should scan yourself to see where you are at fault yourself, and roll up your sleeves to help out and take initiative, both in the home and outside of it.
  6. The State/Government is not above God & man is not God.
  7. You are never alone.
  8. You are not as smart or righteous as you think you are.
  9. You should not take advantage of those who suffer financially or are vulnerable within your own society.
  10. You are given the key to peace of mind, free of charge, which is not in the interest of those who gain on your internal misery. Our thoughts can eventually make us sick even, so why would it be beneficial to heal you for free? If you have a hole in your heart you are led to believe by modern society that all sorts of things outside of yourself can fix it, when the key is already there, within you. I’ve come to believe that true emotional “enslavement” is trying to fill the heart with all that which won’t fill it. I remember how insulted I was some years back when a Christian suggested that reading the Bible could help me with battling stage fright, I thought this sounded like total rubbish. Now I know that I was wrong, in fact very wrong. It has become so ingrained in us to think that we are too advanced for old religious texts (that are allegedly irrelevant due to how ancient they are) and that the solution for whatever problem we might face will always lay outside of ourselves. After all, this is why we have so very many experts….
  11. All you need to know to come around full circle as a human is this: 1 – Open up your heart in sincere and total prayer to those you care about, even strangers & 2 – “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” Jeremiah 29:13.

Opinions….

Standard

They can make friends out of polar opposites and enemies out of peanut butter & jelly. I’ve spent sometime thinking about this recently. Social tensions were sky-high in the UK during the Brexit vote while it has been reported that family and friends are falling out in the US over the current election. It might come across as if though we are more sensitive than ever before, but I’m starting to wonder if this has its fault not just in the current state of affairs but also in our social media usage.

Continuously and unapologetically you are indirectly confronted by opposing political and religious views through what your online connections are sharing and liking. Let’s say that you are a firm believer in socialism and the agenda of the left’s political parties. You believe that higher taxes on the rich and/or corporate will fuel social reform in order to create more equality in terms of opportunities. You believe that the “state” will reinforce whatever legislation that is necessary in order to protect the rights of the people and that the bureaucrats will be an un-compromising wall between capitalists trying to gain control over natural resources that in your opinion should either belong to the people or nobody at all. You firmly believe that corporatism and big business is the greatest evil on earth, that privatisation is Satan incarnate and that only a humongous government can ensure justice. This justice would theoretically only be valid if it is on a global level, as a patriotic charitable nature would mean “discrimination” towards other cultures, which could be abstractly translated as racism.

Let’s say that these are your political leanings and that you feel strongly about this. People are emotional about the future that might await their children and most people probably feel that morality guides their leanings. The irony is that all sides feel this way. The starting point is the same, we simply disagree in regards to the measures that would get us to a subjective ideal point, where the future of our nation and/or the world would be in a better place.

If you feel that privatisation will result in the obliteration of the planet there is a high probability that you would feel quite emotional whenever you encounter opinions that disagree with this. You care about the future, you are naturally worried, problem is, you’ll be confronted indirectly by “global warming/global climate change-deniers” just by logging into your own private social media account. No longer will your realisation of other people’s leanings be limited to face-to-face discussions, you’ll form your own impression of the individual’s beliefs based on nothing  but their online activity. This will fuel prejudices from any side and countless facepalm moments as you cringe at other’s “un-educated nature”.

This is the underlying issue with opinions. We are all surrounded by propaganda. News stories and articles that are twisted and worded in certain ways, as the author tries to desperately manoeuvre any potential reader in the “right direction”according to them. Where we come from as individuals, meaning our individual underlying perception of right and wrong, combined with whatever filter we perceive the world through, form our opinions.

Those on the right roll their eyes at the miss-informed,ignorant left, while the left bang their head in the wall over the un-educated, prejudiced right.

And like this we are eternally locked in a weird Tarantella dance. The infamous dance of the mad.

You always have to question where the information comes from and always bear in mind that opinions are shaped by facts that might be untrue or presented in such a fashion that our emotions get the best of us. In a highly emotional state it is reasonable to believe that we would make highly erratic decisions in order to save the future from what we believe would be destructive. The disturbing fact though is that we cannot be fully sure that we are aiming at the right culprit. We might find ourselves “executing” the innocent, burying the living. We might find ourselves in situations where what is morally right in the moment will lead to disastrous results in the future that are even more immoral.

Always question everything and never trust your own mind a 100%. Question yourself just as you question others. Your perception of reality might be completely false. Always raise questions about those that construct our perception of what “is” and what “is not”.

Life Update.

Standard

I’ve been very quiet lately.

Why? I guess I just don’t feel like saying anything. Which is unusual.

If you have been keeping an eye on my Social Media profiles, you should know that I have some time off.

Contrary to what people might think, my life has just evolved around my music and my family for many years.

It has now though, become very clear to me, that it cannot keep on being this way and that I have to re-think my priorities in life, not necessarily because I feel like it has to be that way, but as a pre-emptive measure.

Which basically means that I should do, what people already think I’m doing.

Anyway, I’m gonna go back to my reading. And hopefully my mood and spark will be back again soon.

I was sent a very cool video yesterday from my shoot over in NY 🙂 That made me quite excited.

I just wanted to add that my first album ” 2 Guitars: The Classical Crossover Album” just went back up on the US Amazon chart again 🙂 I saw it right now! Please check it out if you like classical music, guitar music and/or soundtracks : http://www.amazon.com/2-Guitars-Classical-Crossover-Album/dp/B00QRDJTOM/ref=sr_1_1?s=dmusic&ie=UTF8&qid=1424728504&sr=1-1&keywords=2+guitars+the+classical+crossover+album

My first month Blogging! ( MY TOP 5 ENTRIES).

Standard

My first month blogging has now come to an end!

People from 58 different countries have visited this page and out of those my top 3 countries are:

1)USA 2)UK 3)NORWAY, which doesn’t come as a surpriser to me as these have always been my top 3 countries both with sales, social media traction, etc.

My top 3 referrers are:

1)Facebook 2)Twitter and 3) Search Engines

The top 3 links people clicked:

1) WordPress Media-(my pictures) 2) Guitar World link 3)Link to my store.

I’m glad I decided to do this and will do my best to keep it up! These are my top stories from this month:

1) “Getting Back Into The Zone!” I shared this entry on FB and saw to my great surprise that it went on to become my top entry this month! Me getting back into “virtuoso-shape” clicked with fans and the entry was shared & viewed by many. https://thecommanderinchief.wordpress.com/2015/03/21/getting-back-into-the-zone/

2) “I’ve joined a torture club.” Totally “taking-the-piss” as they say in the UK. This became my most viewed entry this month! I think thats really funny actually! https://thecommanderinchief.wordpress.com/2015/03/27/ive-joined-a-torture-club/

3) “Happy Mother’s Day to my mother.” This personal entry surprised me with becoming my most shared entry! I don’t know if people did that because they loved it or hated it, it was at least honest from my part and the rest of the family loved it too. https://thecommanderinchief.wordpress.com/2015/03/14/happy-mothers-day-to-my-mother/

4) “20 Badass Women!” To mark The International Womens Day I compiled this list! 8th of May is a day to celebrate, regardless of your political affiliation! https://thecommanderinchief.wordpress.com/2015/03/08/20-badass-women/

We_Can_Do_It!

5) “The Hills are Alive with the sound of music.” My very first blog entry that I posted on FB along with the news that I was blogging! I was very surprised by the amount of interest and instantly had people signing up for my email list on here. In the entry I was totally stoked over my album being in top-10 chart and went out for a daring walk…in the wilderness of the British Countryside…The amount of views this article got was only surpassed by my “Torture-Club” entry. https://thecommanderinchief.wordpress.com/2015/03/02/the-hills-are-alive-with-the-sound-of-music/

My least popular entries suffered greatly from not really being shared anywhere, these are posts I made usually very late in the night and didn’t promote on FB.

1) “Illustrations For Children’s books“. Getting attention for original art is usually a slow burning process, this entry was my least successful this month. https://thecommanderinchief.wordpress.com/2015/03/22/illustrations-for-childrens-books/

AuthorsDreams 2013

2) “St.Patricks Day a Christian Holiday?” – Writing about the origins of this used-to-be-religious- holiday gained NO traction. Guess if I had posted a top 10 most outrageous outfits it probably would have trended like crazy. https://thecommanderinchief.wordpress.com/2015/03/17/st-patricks-day-a-christian-holiday/

3) “#1!My album is #1!” Written by an overly tired, overly excited, sleep deprived me and published around 3AM or something, my exctatic post about my number one album received little buzz on my blog. https://thecommanderinchief.wordpress.com/2015/03/24/1-my-album-is-1/

Number 1!

Number 1!

4) “I’ve become addicted to blogging!”  nobody cared much about that. https://thecommanderinchief.wordpress.com/2015/03/17/ive-become-addicted-to-blogging/

IMG_1619

5) “Dragon Age Inquisition!” It was well liked on youtube and got an overwhelming response on FB, but here on my blog besides a couple of gamers who stumbled upon this from search engines, it earned little buzz. https://thecommanderinchief.wordpress.com/2015/03/19/dragon-age-inquisition-m/

Conclusion: It is unpredictable what will trend and what won’t, but sharing entries on FB certainly helps, especially if you have a featured image that catches peoples attention. Also, the one beauty related entry I did about nail polish got many likes from other wordpress bloggers, girls blogging about beauty tips. Which proves that certain topics can trend even without Social Media help, it’s just hard to know what will and what won’t.

Petitions I’ve signed! It has never before been easier to voice your opinion and hopefully contribute to some positive change! I’ve always hated injustice. When I was in high school I was a member of the Amnesty International Club, but at the time I felt like it was too passive to just sit and sign letters. I really wanted to bring CHANGE with big huge letters, but it can be hard to know what to do. Outside of signing petitions, writing letters and putting pressure on elected officials, the only other options are angry protest or running for office. So signing petitions it is, at least for the moment . . .
