…And United States of America so called president (yes, with ‘p’ lower case) is out of control. It is chaos reigning in the world right now. If there is chaos in the USA, there is chaos in the world, simply because the US has been the leader of the globe for decades. And that -chaos- is not good for the USA and it is not good for the planet.
I cannot call him “President Trump”, because he might have the title but he does not behave like one. I have no respect for him at all. He is crude, rude, low class, vulgar, even perverse. Yes, I have been quiet, but he has gone too far. He is absolutely and irrefutable out of his mind, saying things like “there is a vaccine for AIDS” …. WHAT?! When I heard this, how can I say it without insulting him badly? ah, no, impossible to find a decent word.
What I cannot comprehend is why there are still many people who believe the words that come out of his mouth and follow him to his rallies. He is not “going to drain the swamp” people, because HE IS part of the swamp. He gives tax relieves to his friends. He hasn’t revealed his taxes because he has powerful friends who protect him from doing so, because it is good for what ever they are doing with him and through him: M.O.N.E.Y.
Worst of all, he has created a climate of hate, terrible fear and death. Frankly, I am making this post as a statement of my opposition to killing and the suppression of life. As a medical doctor I have the obligation and responsibility to save lives, to extend the lifespan of my patients, I make their lives more comfortable and help them live with physical and mental dignity.
Trump, with the hate that invades his tiny little mind, is infecting humanity and it’s my obligation to say it so, as a doctor. As a medical doctor I oppose the use of choke-holds, I oppose brutality and aggression against ANY human being. I will NEVER agree to the use of deadly force to control any type of situation (those that many hate groups, consider it to be “normal”!) Those are excuses to kill because of hate and rage.
Let’s teach love and compassion
These are some reports about HATE GROUPS in the US since the Trump Era
White nationalist hate groups in the US have increased 55% throughout the Trump era, according to a new report by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), and a “surging” racist movement continues to be driven by “a deep fear of demographic change”.
“Though the experts appear to understand the threat, they remain hamstrung by the Trump administration, which has hired members of hate groups into high-level positions and has on its staff people like Stephen Miller, the senior policy adviser in the White House who has long been allied with anti-immigrant hate groups,” it said.
The law center said the number of hate groups rose by 7 percent last year to 1,020, a 30 percent jump from 2014. That broadly echoes other worrying developments, including a 30 percent increase in the number of hate crimes reported to the F.B.I. from 2015 through 2017 and a surge of right-wing violence that the Anti-Defamation League said had killed at least 50 people in 2018.
“HATE IS IGNORANCE WITH FEAR“ — Dr. Martha A. Castro N., MD
Not only threatened. You can feel emotionally disturbed. You can feel psychic trauma, which can have physiological manifestations.
You can feel silenced. These are all real harms that may be suffered by people who are subject to hatred speech that is not punishable.
Life is changing dramatically in front of us all, and around the world. Life always changes, it’s true, but right now the changes are daily, and aggressive, some are so painful for many, like the lose of life due to Covid-19 and to horrible torture executions like the one that happened, so sadly and painfully, to George Floyd in Minneapolis (RIP).
How to cope with these terrible suffering that hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people are going through right now around the world? Sometimes it can get very scary for many when thinking about the future. and usually these patients develop several mental issues, like: panic attacks, severe anxiety, anger, depression, suicidal thoughts, that can make them manifest physical symptoms or aggravate the ones they already have.

Violence and hate: brutal behavior and intense aversion coming from extreme anger. That is the definition of two barbarousness acts and feelings happening in our world. And I don’t want any part of it.
I reject all lack of kindness in my life. Because that is no way to live.
My life is too precious to waste it having resentment, hate, being violent or unkind. That is why is imperative to me to be surrounded by people who embrace the same values I do.
I want: peace, loyalty, honesty, respect, compassion, kindness, sincerity. I want to give it all, I want to get it all. It goes both ways, remember that.
The more we watch violent TV shows, play bloody games where killing is the goal. The more we participate in digital conversations spreading hate and attacking others -that many times we don’t even know physically-, the more damage we cause to our brain and our general well being.
I choose happiness, I choose love. I say no to violence, I say no to hate.
Hypocrites have “taught” me to be more careful about trusting so easily.
They have shown me that the world can be beautiful without them in my life.
I am stronger because of their hypocrite self-righteous judgement.
I love it that these people get offended by the truth.
I have learned to appreciate and love the people around me who are truthful, straightforward honest and never deceive me.
The cause of hypocrisy originally stems from insecurity.
Selfishness is a form of insecurity because an overly selfish person needs to take advantage of or withhold resources from others, since they don’t believe they can live their best life being generous and honest.
That implies that they have less trust in their ability to live a comfortable life, meaning they are insecure about their skills.
According to this logic presented, hypocrisy really only originates from insecurity if the two mains causes are insecurity and selfishness.
“People dislike hypocrites because they unfairly use condemnation to gain reputational benefits and appear virtuous at the expense of those who they are condemning –when these reputational benefits are in fact undeserved,”
Explains psychological scientist Jillian Jordan of Yale University, first author on the research.
“What goes around comes around” is the phrase that comforts most people when they’re in an unfair situation or any other situation in which they have no control over.
If you ask most people what karma is all about they will say something like, “It is punishment for past wrongs.” Or “What you do to others will come back to you.”
The concept of karma is very old and has its origin in ancient India. However, many Buddhist and Hinduist schools of thought use different definitions.
However, many people still have a need for an outside authority that punishes and rewards. This is apparent in the way many religions are still interpreted and practiced.
For generations, our ancestors believed in a judging and punishing god. Subconsciously we still project the image of a judging authority on a teacher, a set of religious or philosophical beliefs, or a concept like karma. This way, we just take away the old judging deity and replace it with another.
It’s seen as a sort of cause and effect; a universal system of justice against your crimes.
In fact, some people count on it for vengeance.
The original Buddhist idea of karma based on reincarnation is even more problematic with respect to evidence.
Nothing out of the ordinary happens much. Everything happens for a reason, sure, but that reason hasn’t been proven to be a spiritual or a mystical one. Everything happens for a reason because of cause and effect. That cause and effect is determined by probability.
In history, there have been legions of people who have done good deeds for their families and other people while still living lives of quiet desperation. What do infants do to deserve being abandoned by their parents, or being killed in car accidents?
At the other end, there are despotic leaders like Stalin and predatory criminals like Jack the Ripper who got to the end of their lives without any particularly dire consequences.
These examples do not prove that there is no such thing as karma, but should combine with the lack of evidence for karma to support the conclusion that karma is just a myth. The belief that what goes around comes around is just wishful thinking.
CONCLUSION: Karma is not a bitch. It is a myth. It doesn’t exist.
