The Jokers Are Wild


all the world’s a stage
and all the people merely players
they have their entrances and their exits
and one man in his time plays many parts

yeah, in the words of Shakespeare . . .

all the world’s a stage

really???

is it????

and if so, who is writing the script?

maybe . . .
all the world’s a stage
for those who have staged the plandemic
who have carpet-bombed the world with fear

maybe . . .
for them
We The People are merely players
pawns with preplanned exits

or maybe . . .
we don't even register as bit players
in their preplanned script
their mapped out moves

and then, Shakespeare left out a line

he left out

THE JOKERS ARE WILD

yeah . . .

all the world’s a stage
and all the people merely players
they have their entrances and their exits
and one man in his time plays many parts

AS FOR THE JOKERS

YEAH, AS FOR THE JOKERS

THE JOKERS ARE WILD!


Martin Luther King Jr - a joker

Matrin Luther King Jr - quote


Mohandas Gandhi - another joker

Mohandas Gandhi - quote


Henry David Thoreau - yet another joker

Henry David Thoreau - quote


We say - We the Jokers say . . .

When injustice rules,
there's only one rule
for all who are not fools

Time to end
the enslavement
Time
for justice to rule


Yeah . . .
THE JOKERS ARE WILD

no one can be sure of
the moves in our game
or what the game is

what are the moves
we may not know
they may come to us
as we move on

nothing stays stable
nothing stays  fixed

the tables are turned
upside down
legs in the air

cuz . . .

THE JOKERS ARE WILD


there’s no answer blowing in the wind
for evil doers with evil plans

not with so many wild cards

no answer

we move toward our answers
take steps toward answering
the call from deep within
to move toward our heart's calling
safety for We the People
justice for We the People

the end of the cabal

yes,
one outcome is wanted
one outcome is planned
by evil doers with evil plans
by those who planned the plandemic


but we all know

from that good old poet
Robert Burns

the best laid plans
      of mice and men

      of gangsters and ghouls
          gang aft a-gley
          often gang up on those who made them
          often get garbled and mangled
                    by wild cards and other tangles


Yeah . . .
THE JOKERS ARE WILD!

no one understands
all the ins and outs of this game
this wild game played by jokers
steps made up
as we move to our goal


human rights for all
our birth right
justice and freedom

nothing stays the same

one move - everything can change


hey you . . .

are you a wild card?

Martin Luther King Jr - a joker

One has not only a legal
but a moral responsibility
to obey just laws.
Conversely,
one has a moral responsibility
to disobey unjust laws.



Mohandas Gandhi - another joker

A good person will resist
an evil system
with his whole soul.
Disobedience of the laws
of an evil state
is therefore a duty.



Henry David Thoreau - yet another joker

Disobedience
is the true foundation
of liberty.
The obedient
must be slaves.

Martin Luther King Jr


One has not only a legal
but a moral responsibility
to obey just laws.
Conversely,
one has a moral responsibility
to disobey unjust laws.


from his Letter from Birmingham Jail, Good Friday, 1963

He was in jail for marching to protest that city’s racial segregation laws.

Here's more:

Citing the Catholic saints Augustine and Thomas Aquinas, King, a Baptist clergyman, said that a just law is one that comports with the law of God and an unjust law is one that doesn't.

"You express a great deal of anxiety over our willingness to break laws," King wrote. "This is certainly a legitimate concern. Since we so diligently urge people to obey the Supreme Court's decision of 1954 outlawing segregation in the public schools, it is rather strange and paradoxical to find us consciously breaking laws.

"One may well ask, ‘How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?’" King continued. "The answer is found in the fact that there are two types of laws: There are just laws and there are unjust laws. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that ‘an unjust law is no law at all.’

"Now, what is the difference between the two?" wrote King. "How does one determine when a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas, an unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law."

The Declaration of Independence, which invokes the "Laws of Nature and of Nature's God," roots the founding of America in the same principle that the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., rooted the Civil Rights Movement.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness," says the Declaration. "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

Mohandas Gandhi


A good person will resist
an evil system
with his whole soul.
Disobedience of the laws
of an evil state
is therefore a duty.


This is from posthumous publications.

Here's more from Gandhi - all from
https://slife.org/mahatma-gandhi-quotes
/:

You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees. An evil system never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it means partaking of the evil. A good person will resist an evil system with his or her whole soul.


Disobedience without civility, discipline, discrimination, non-violence, is certain destruction. Disobedience combined with love is the living water of life. Civil disobedience is a beautiful variant to signify growth, it is not discordance which spells death.
Young India (1 May 1922)

Complete civil disobedience is a state of peaceful revolution, a refusal to obey every single state-made law.
As quoted in Mahatma: Life of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1920-1929), D.G. Tendulkar, Vol. 2, (1920-1929), 2nd edition, Publications Division (1960), p 52.

I hold the opinion firmly that Civil Disobedience is the purest type of constitutional agitation. Of course, it becomes degrading and despicable if its civil, i.e. non-violent character is a mere camouflage.
Young India (15 December 1921)

A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.
In Ethical Religion, (Madras: S. Ganesan, 1922), p. 62

Any action that is dictated by fear or by coercion of any kind ceases to be moral.
Ethical Religion, S. Ganesan, Madras (1922) p. 8

No action which is not voluntary can be called moral.
Ethical Religion, S. Ganesan, Madras (1922) p. 8

Satan’s successes are the greatest when he appears with the name of God on his lips.
"The Inwardness of Non-Co-operation". Quoted in Freedom’s Battle: Being a Comprehensive Collection of Writings and Speeches (1922), p. 144

The only tyrant I accept in this world is the "still small voice" within me. And even though I have to face the prospect of being a minority of one, I humbly believe I have the courage to be in such a hopeless minority.
In Young India (2 March 1922). Quoted in The Essential Gandhi: An Anthology of His Writings on His Life, Work, and Ideas edited by Louis Fischer (2002), p. 160

Under democracy individual liberty of opinion and action is jealously guarded.
Young India (2 March 1922)

If one has no affection for a person or a system, one should feel free to give the fullest expression to his disaffection so long as he does not contemplate, promote, or incite violence.
Statement during his trial for "exciting disaffection toward His Majesty’s Government as established by law in India," 18 March 1922 (specific citation needed)

Nonviolence is the first article of my faith. It is also the last article of my creed.
Opening words of his defense speech at his trial Young India (23 March 1922)

Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as is cooperation with good.
Written statement in trial for sedition, March 1922

Always believe in your dreams, because if you don’t, you'll still have hope.
Young India (23 March 1924)

Hinduism is a relentless pursuit after truth and if today it has become moribund, inactive, irresponsive to growth, it is because we are fatigued. As soon as the fatigue is over, Hinduism will burst forth upon the world with a brilliance perhaps never known before.
Young India (24 April 1924)

The indirect influence of Christianity has been to quicken Hinduism to life. The cultured Hindu society has admitted its grievous sin against the untouchables. But the effect of Christianity upon India in general must be judged by the life lived in our midst by the average Christian and its effect upon us. I am sorry to have to re record my opinion that it has been disastrous. It pains me to have to say that the Christian missionaries as a body, with honourable exceptions, have actively supported a system which has impoverished, enervated and demoralised a people considered to be among the gentlest and most civilized on earth . . .
Young India (13 July 1924), reprinted in Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi, Volume 24, New Delhi, 1967, p. 476

I wanted to know the best of the life of one (Muhammad) who holds today an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind. I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle.
Young India (23 September 1924), reprinted in Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi, vol.29, "My Jail experiences", p. 133

A man is the sum of his actions, of what he has done, of what he can do, Nothing else.
Mohandas Gandhi


Again, all the above is from: https://slife.org/mahatma-gandhi-quotes/

As for

David Henry Thoreau,

he's best known for Walden Pond, where he entered into an experiment in living, because he did not want to come to the end of his life, and realize he had not truly lived.
