In an age of intolerance and rampant police state tactics across the globe…
A decade ago from this day we have lived in such an age, or at least such is and has been manifest thenceforth to a far higher degree than ever before.
This was a day for change on a global level in many aspects and one could instantly feel it as the day’s events unfolded.. as one watched in a stupefied, alarmed daze helplessly witnessing horror – perpetrated by mindless prejudice that walks about hand in hand with intolerance.
Reminded by a friend moments ago, an equally horrid day was this precise day – September 11, in 1973
with the assassination of Salvador Allende and the horrific reign of treachery that ensued.
Truly a day of intolerance.. whereupon a fraction of Mankind rears it’s ugly head and wreaks terror upon all others.
Any mind that is blinded by greed, hatred or prejudice withers and dies.
It becomes a feeble shell full of worthless quotation and campaign, incapable of sustaining a thought of its own – a helpless cripple that succumbs to the poisons of Man and the false notion of superiority.
There is no honour in terror. In terror there is only terror – and emptiness.
I leave below a painting created almost a year after these deadly and cruel occurrences 10 years ago and videos of two pieces by Charlie Haden as a token of just homage not only to the victims of terror of this day, but victims everywhere that succumb to intolerance, greed and blood thirsty scavengers. The image (the painting here at the bottom) is also a protest to how this world has become dystopic, and how lust for power and greed keep murdering people through: hunger, physical torture/strife, racial/religious oppression of all kinds, blind fanaticism, neo-liberal slaveries and the ill use of “slogan” in order to perpetuate intolerable manipulation (to confuse and confound all around). This post is in memory to the victims of the day, and to Man’s struggle to keep a sound soul.. in an age of cold “fake” cash.
I also leave videos of the man
plus a piece by Charlie Haden performed by his Liberation Music Orchestra on David Sanborn’s Nightmusic
and his “Silence”
I further leave a link with a tribute to the Hudson River School of painters GUIDA FINE ARTS
