Warning: I advise extreme caution when using salvia. This is a dangerous substance only for experienced psychonauts. A trip sitter is mandatory. Be prepared to completely lose your mind & sense of reality.
I don't spend much time on Twitter. But if you're gonna follow one political commentator, Anand Giridharadas is one of the best:
His critiques of hyper-capitalism are sharp and devastating.
This is what serious progressivism looks like. Serious progressivism is not college kids protesting for trans rights. It's someone like Anand going for the jugular of unchecked capitalism. Everything else is a sideshow.
American capitalism is in the process of cannibalizing itself. But most elites are in denial about it because they want to keep milking the cow until it drops dead.
If you want to break out of wage slavery and become successful what you need is to develop serious skill, like this example. Skillz are how you become a somebody in the world.
Would you hire this guy if you needed some drawing work done? You couldn't say no! He's too good to be ignored. Everyone wants to work with skilled people. It is like honey that attracts all the ants.
You are not going to make it far in life without building a unique and powerful skill set. Building a skill set takes time, patience, focus, vision, and passion.
See my Life Purpose Course for help finding your direction in life. It's very practical and gives you the core principles you need to move forward with building your unique skill set. Building a skill set takes a lot of time, so there's no time to waste. Get started now! The better your skill set the more money you will make, the more creative freedom you will command.
BTW, my skill set is articulating understanding. Not to brag, but I'm really, really good at it. Which is why you watch my videos. How did I get so good? I practiced it in my mind for 20+ years. Why did I do that? Because I love it.
So, Step #1: Find what you love and master the shit out of it.
Step #2: Profit!
If you live in a poor or underdeveloped country where life is difficult, your best way to rise out of that muck is to train up an incredible skill set. That is your passport to freedom. And yes, you can do it. But you need a clear vision and sense of direction.
The beauty of building a skill set is that it can be done virtually anywhere and it can be done virtually for free. You can build up an amazing skill set in a village in Iraq. Which allows you to bootstrap yourself from nothing to something.
So roll up your sleeves, lock yourself in a room, and build your skill set.
When it comes to understanding shifts on the political spectrum the key notion that people do not understand or explicitly state is Relativity. All political ideologies and positions are completely relative. So what looks "extreme" or "radical" left or right wing only appears that way given a particular vantage point. There is no "radical" in the absolute sense. But this notion is too radical for mainstream news people to speak. A great confusion results when news people speak of liberal, centrist, or conservative positions as if these are fixed, absolute quantities. All scientific scales are relative, and even more so political scales, but this point is lost on mainstream news anchors.
There is no such thing, in politics, as staying in the middle. Because the very notion of "a middle" does not exist! "The middle" is always defined relative to the extremes. Your mind literally cannot know what "the middle" is unless it has extremes to contrast it with. And since the extremes are always moving, so is "the middle." By trying to stay in "the middle" you're actually naively fooling yourself that politics isn't changing when it is.
Yesterday's radicalism is today's "middle". And yesterday's "middle" is today considered barbaric or criminal. Don't forget, the middle between truth and falsehood is still falsehood. The middle between non-slavery and slavery is still slavery. So being in the middle is not as safe and sound as it first seems. Don't try to be in the middle. Try to be truthful, conscious, selfless, and loving. That is the best position. And in an ego-obsessed society, truth, consciousness, selflessness, and love are seen as radical.
Amazing raw footage! Try to put yourself in the epistemic position of the tribesmen. Notice how their minds simply cannot make sense of what is happening. That's because their limited paradigm cannot account for what is happening in their direct experience. It's very much like a psychedelic breakthrough trip. It's clearly real, but your mind has no clue how to explain it, and of course you're terrified it might be dangerous.
This is exactly what it's like for humans to meet advanced aliens. And exactly what it's like for humans to meet God. God can be present in your direct experience but your mind will not be capable of making sense of what God is, let alone how it is possible that God could be YOU!
Humans who have never had a breakthrough dose of psychedelics are like those tribesmen, with no clue of the world that exists outside their little tribal village.
This video is also what it's like for a materialist scientist to encounter mysticism. Mysticism is like that white man. It makes no sense to the rational mind because it's so much more advanced.
Teaching about God feels like being that white guy trying to give food to those terrified and puzzled tribesmen. Imagine trying to explain to them what a video camera is.
Watch this time lapse of how the global mind is coming online:
This is the real meaning of globalization.
The Earth is wiring itself for unity — reaching out and reconnecting to lost parts of itself. Becoming more integrated and whole.
This is a poignant example of what I was talking about in my video: Division vs Unity.
There is no stopping this. We cannot ever go back. The only way forward is ever-higher integration of the species.
Reminds me of this image which shows the mind's level of interconnectedness by default vs on a psychedelic:
This is what visionary leadership sounds and looks like.
This is a speech by former Brazilian president Lula da Silva just before his unlawful imprisonment.
"There is no use in trying to stop my ideas."
"They're already in the air and you cannot imprison them."
"There is no point in trying to stop my dreams. Because when I stop dreaming I'll be dreaming through your minds and dreams."
"There's no point in thinking everything's going to stop the day Lula has a heart attack."
"Because my heart will be beating through yours, and there are millions of hearts."
"The powerful can kill one, two, or 100 roses, but they'll never stop the arrival of spring."

That is the power of Selflessness. It is the ultimate power. The power of God.
It touches your soul because deep down you feel the highest Truth is Selfless. And you yearn to be guided towards Truth despite all your devilry.
Talk about a man who understands that reproduction is not limited to biology.
My kind of beasties ;)
I'm not a huge fan of Morning Joe's centrist views, but this was a nice example of them calling out devilry:
Joe has done a good job in the Trump era of not jumping into the cult of Trump and calling out his own side. This takes integrity and objectivity.
