Thank you, Eric, for speaking my mind about violence in the world and its roots in suppressed/conflicted sexuality.
I trace the origin of this screwed up aspect of our national psyche to the Puritan religion injected into our matrix at the beginning of the European invasion. I also see ISIL as the result of conflicted clerics obsessed with our forbidden lady parts (cf. the Ottoman Empire) cloaking themselves in Allah, and then extruding their sexual confusion through a patriarchal template of the most brutal and misogynistic unconsciousness imaginable.
That one will take some time to unravel, I’m afraid, because the psych profile of ISIL is not one that lends itself either to introspection or challenges to its primary delusion of masculine domination.
All the astrology that’s currently stirring the bottom of our personal consciousness and throwing up disowned and repressed psychopathy to be processed as part of our evolutionary journey to enlightenment must inevitably do the same thing for the collective. Simply getting that broken bone of repressed sexuality set properly, once and for all, would easily eliminate a good half of the violence in the world. Curing ourselves of Calvinist ideology and irrational fear would sort out the rest of it quite nicely, and eliminate racism, too.
Somehow — no matter whether the violence is tribal or national, personal or collective — it always comes back to sex.
