Alright, it is time for some tough love truth-telling to break the cognitive dissonance of the hypocrisy of so many about their purported worldcentric values and global empathy.
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:
Changing your profile picture to French colors is supporting the ETHNOCENTRIC Worldview that lead to the CREATION and TERRORISM of ISIS and the DEATH of the PARISIANS in the first place.
YOUR ETHNOCENTRISM IS THE SAME ETHNOCENTRISM THAT DRIVES ISIS TO BRUTALLY KILL.
I would have to do a lot more research on Middle East Politics to be a bonafide expert on the topic but I know enough to say:
The GEOPOLITICAL POLICY of the United States and The European Union CREATED ISIS and FUELED the FIRE of RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM.
The HATE & DESTRUCTION of ISIS is a REFLECTION of THE WESTERN WORLD’S LACK of WORLDCENTRIC LOVE, COMPASSION and SKILLFUL MEANS.
We are REAPING what we SOWED.
The BUSH ADMINISTRATION and its PUPPET MASTER: CORPORATE AMERICA created ISIS with the 2003 INVASION of IRAQ that was executed on LIES, GREED, INTOLERANCE and INCOMPETENCY, using the instruments of the MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX and MASS MEDIA LIES & BRAINWASHING.

All life is precious, but you know what? This might sound cold and harsh, but hardly anybody died in Paris yesterday.
127 people died.
And if recency is your claim for your emotionality, 43 people died and 239 were wounded in terrorist attacks by ISIS in BEIRUT a day before the Paris attacks. (http://mic.com/articles/128551/
Look at the difference in google searched between the Paris attacks and the Beirut attacks:
2-3x more people died in the Paris attacks but it got over 100 times more attention than the Beirut attacks.
In Baghdad yesterday, a suicide bomber struck at a funeral for a militiaman who was killed in battle; at least 21 were killed and 46 were wounded. (http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/
200-300 people were killed across conflicts yesterday in the Iraq/Syria civil war. (http://original.antiwar.com/updates/
But those events are all largely ignored on Facebook and America Media.
In social psychology there is a research tool called the Implicit Association Test, which can find out what your subconscious truly believes despite what you profess to believe. Many people have been revealed to be racist, sexist and homophobic who claim not to be, through tests like these. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
We don’t need to do an implicit association test to prove WORLDCENTRIC HYPOCRISY here.
It’s LIVE, REAL-TIME SCIENTIFIC DATA & EVIDENCE.
Do you know how many people have died in the Iraq War and the Syrian Civil War that America created?
151,000 to 1 Million Iraqis are estimated to have died in the conflict, many of them women, children and civilian non combatants.
220,000 people have been killed in the Syrian Civil War.
The MIDDLE EAST CONFLICT we CREATED has led to 3 Million SYRIAN REFUGEES.
WHO THE EUROPEAN UNION WILL BARELY & RELUCTANTLY ONLY WITH ARM TWISTING, OFFERS SOME SHELTER FOR.
What does it mean that I see over 100 TIMES MORE POSTS about the PARIS TERRORIST ATTACKS than about the death tolls in SYRIA and IRAQ?
How many people even died in 9/11?
That number is pathetically small compared to IRAQ/SYRIA casualties.
If you believe you hold the Values of WORLDCENTRIC EMPATY where ALL LIVES MATTER you should be ASHAMED of your HYPOCRISY.
And don’t contract or lash out at me in bitterness for calling out the Truth.
ADMIT YOUR MISTAKE.
READ. RESEARCH. REFLECT.
CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE.
LET YOUR SHAME FUEL YOUR TRANSFORMATION.
There are Solutions to ISIS and Religious Extremism but it’s not more Violence.
“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind” – Gandhi.
The solution lies in large part in Integral Developmental Religious Pluralism and Economic Integration and Interdependence but that’s a topic for another day.
Today is about looking at yourself in the mirror.
And asking yourself if you’re really LIVING YOUR VALUES.
“If the incidents of the world that EMOTIONALLY RESONATE with YOU ARE TRULY REFLECTIVE of YOUR SELF-PROCLAIMED GLOBAL EMPATHY and YOUR DEISRE FOR WORLD PEACE?”
