What do we know of "mercy"?
Is it what you cry out to make the pain stop?
Is it what your allies do to end the suffering?
What DO we know of mercy?
You can rest assured... mercy in this cold world is a lie... it simply does not exist.
Welfare is not a form of mercy - it is a form of applied stasis. You walk in to DSHS, sign some papers, and while many call it mercy, in reality, all you get barely keeps you alive... it dices mobility as well. You cannot get rich on welfare, but you cannot get poor. While it follows you, you endure the worst form of social separation from the middle and upper class, and society puts you on the eternal standby list. Someone on welfare has little opportunity to climb out of the hole of poverty. While statistics point to that most on welfare are on it for less than two years, no formal statistics have come forward to say whether that's because the people become too poor for welfare or too rich for it at that point. I think, if you approach this situation realistically, you will consider that with the economy showing no promise in the slightest, the likely truth is that after two years, the "mercy" stops... and the suffering continues.
Among social climes, mercy is devoid, not because there isn't an end to suffering, but because it ends with a debt. Mercy does not end with debt, but that is how people dish it up. For instance, people who were on welfare are indebted to their government. People who lose a wrestling match are indebted to the victor. People who need that late night getaway ride from the bar... indebted. That's not mercy, that's capitalism. Leave it to capitalists to pervert one of the most saintly things on this earth.
Have you ever wondered why depression can strike so violently? It is because the the victims perceive the familial debt as one of the greatest of all debts. It is because of the financial debt to the doctors. It is because of the physical debt to the drugs. It is the forlorn debt to the friends. And those that wish to have no debt, go untreated. Not because they choose to forgo help, but because they choose to forgo the trappings of modern mercy... they are wise enough to know that mercy in the words of a debtor will never profit them. Perhaps the victims are tired of being victimized.
And have you ever questioned the mercy of the military? The same military who plays host to a self-described epidemic of suicides? The same military who shows up at the last possible second to play the tune of Mother Theresa - for example, in Rwanda, or Germany? The mercy of allied forces didn't save the millions of jews, did not stop the genocides, didn't come to the aid in Africa to stop blood diamonds, brigands who crushed the life from the villagers? Mercy failed to help the Afghans... everyone has become again a target, re-victimized souls after the meddling that led to the destruction of the country by its warlords, its tribes... mercy didn't help Iraq either when cast into perpetual war and theft of natural resources. Mercy didn't compel the Americans and Russians to crush the Nazis, it was their orders left to tactically end a battle - the civilian fallout was irrelevant. If the Nazi's could have been routed completely by victory in Poland, France, or abroad, that's where the battle would have been. Fuck the jews, right? They were not, were never enough reason to attack Germany. Had the Nazi's abandoned the camps instead of fortifying them, the jews would have been left on their own.
It is not mercy when the Federal Reserve adjusts interest rates, it is a lie told to pacify americans. They are not in the business of mercy - they are a business, a real business, made of currency and economic manipulation. They generate debt from the government for all the paper they print, cry that they need to print more, adjust the rates to look favorable while multiplying the debts at any rate, and then cry for bailouts when their best payees feel pain. It is not mercy, it is maintenance of the ponzi pyramid.
What do we know of mercy?
Is it merciful for the England to place missiles on the tops of people's homes, to monitor them, begin waves of pseudo terrorist hunts and raids, and eliminate speech privileges in London, under the guise of Olympics security? Is that mercy, or is that oppression? Is it mercy that the FAA just granted DHS permission to launch domestic flights of surveillance drones not merely along the border, but mainland america? Is that merciful protection, or oppression?
It seems the farther you tread into the deconstruction of mercy, the more it points to oppression... in the personal sense, often manifested almost by accident, a conditioned instinct... and in the national sense, a flat out assault of debt and terror that oppresses the people, binds them to law, and provides no venue for freedom, save but for the first ten minutes of the insane asylum before the gloved hands finish your lobotomy as a sovereign citizen of the world.
The next time you are offered mercy, reject it. No temporary relief is worth the entrapment of the soul. No plea bargain is worth the lives of your comrades. No diagnosis is worth the debasement of your life and worth. What more are we than Judas, spiteful and complicit in the destruction of our world? What worth are we but dirt, when we sign over all that makes us relevant? What good are we in debt, when we take it to avoid strife? What souls are we but silenced, when we allow our oppressor total victory?
Resist, or they will kill us.
