Why Does my Heart Feel so Bad?

So . . .why does my heart feel so bad?  Could it be because We Are the 99% . . .? Or for the same reason that (some) psychopaths make great CEOs? A question for the Banksters and financial cowboys of a sick global system. A question which they are no doubt already scrambling for answers to. And do they have any answers? What we can expect is more denial, more shifting of blame. More running obstructions, More law suits to protect the corporatocracy. Let’s see. Meanwhile we have Occupy this that and the other.

This may well turn into an Occupy Monsanto and an Occupy Goldman Sachs and an Occupy British Petroleum as well. Just for starters of course. The power elite will never change, or at least if history tells us anything not in any kind of hurry. The intractable ones may need to be occupied. Well . . .hopefully it will be more reasonable than the French revolution. They lopped a lot of heads back then. Nowadays maybe they’re just lopping egos. Ouch! One gets the feeling we are about to find out.

And think about this hipsters . . .is the reason that we haven’t heard too much in the commercial news about the Occupy protests because it was originally promoted and is still being pushed by Adbusters? Not a lot of enthusiasm there for a movement that is closely linked to ADBUSTERS? They just don’t butter their bread on the right side now do they? The fact that they have caught the zeitgeist for what’s really up for people at the moment doesn’t matter, because hey, it’s anti commercial and gosh . . . God is a salesman isn’t she? Ummm let me just look that one up.

What we can also expect now is massive change. Correct. It’s what they call in System Theory a Meta-System Transition. Go ahead and look that one up. Meta-System Transition . . .Occupy. This is now the beginning of the end and one may easily conjecture . . .unstoppable. This is the game that we came here for. All your base are belong to us. Go ahead and Google that phrase if you have to – all those slacker gamers already know. You know?

In solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement. A sad but uplifting song that puts it rather beautifully. The lyrics in full: Why does my heart feel so bad? Why does my soul feel so bad? These open doors . . .Ahhh! 

Adbusters – the poeple who brought you Occupy Wall Street – are offering this beautiful Moby video on their home page – enjoy Why Does My Heart Feel so Bad?

“why does my heart /soul feel so bad”…(nice clip by the way Dr Q.)
well…i might suggest that the core of that has to do with a sense of powerlessness and frustration we all feel..both on a personal and collective level when confronted with the enormity of the task before us….ie (as I see it)- nothing less than to free ourselves and all our brothers and sisters from enslavement by an inherently corrupt, unjust and flawed system. ‘Feudalism’ and slavery are alive and kicking folks and 99% are awakening to the realisation that the forces of darkness are very real and they wear dark suits, live behind bullet proof glass- they are intelligent, well spoken and have straight polished teeth …
If your reading this I’m sure i’m not telling you something you don’t already know…just ranting i guess…..Which actually comes to the point I started out trying to make….
“my heart and soul feel so bad”- aka- ‘Depression’ (?)…a definition put forward by (a long time teacher of mine (Lazaris)-..”depression is largely caused by anger that is repressed/supressed/unexpressed. …in other words anger you feel you don’t have a right to have”.
One of the challenges before us is to Mobilise Energise and Revolutionise that most ancient of human emotions ..ANGER,,,…BUT to do it in such a way that it does not become a blind destructive force…
History has many examples of people who ‘transmuted’ their anger at injustice into positive and peaceful resistance (Martin Luther King Jr…comes to mind)
“Anger is an Energy” …
On a somewhat ‘lighter note’…..someone that I feel embodies the Meta Transition System(in the arena of comedy/entertainment at least) using his ‘anger’ for good not evil is the late great Bill Hicks. Though the following clip is from the early 90’s the images have obviously been updated and proves the timelessness of his message.
Language Warning-…if you are a minor or are offended by strong language (or maybe you jjust don’t like hearing someone getting angry)
However if you consider yourself a mature discerning adult who likes intelligent humor…(yes I know folks that’s only my perspective)…
Anyway bladybla…Consider that a warning and disclaimer.
ps to the moderator ..That’s you Dr Quantam (iI assume)…i hope you’ll see it fit to not censor it….viva ‘free speach.!!
It’s offered to y’all in the belief that after watching your heart and soul might not feel so bad.

Paul, indeed Slavery and Feudalism are alive and kicking. I like the Lazaris definition of depression you put forward as being largely caused by anger that is supressed and unexpressed. Anger you don’t feel you have a right to have. Amen to that. One of the challenges is to mobilise energise and revolutionise ANGER. That does not become a blind destructive force. Awesome! I would add to the list of those who transmuted their anger as well as Martin Luther Jr . . .Gandhi and Mandela. The Dalai Lama? I would have thought so also. Anyway . . .Great comment dude. I will check out the link. I also received another great video link today. Watch this space.

Bill Hicks can be funny but he doesn’t seem to have transmuted his anger in the way you talk about. Do you know of Dr Cornell West? Now here’s another brother who seems to have woken up from the dream
