order |beauty | love

In this modern, woke world, the concept of order is very much out of fashion. It has too many connotations of authoritarian control and domination. Indeed, one could even argue they are antonyms. For order depends upon a structural integrity and is based in truth, while woke has become synonymous with lie.

In a world of fake news, misinformation and a carefully collaborated narrative to herd us all into politically correct, appropriate, collective thinking, the truth and critical thinking has become the first casualty. The pandemic of modern mental ill health has much of its origin in the resultant confusion and inability of the common person to ascertain the truth of what is really going on.

What we hear and read in this elegantly crafted narrative repetitively posted on social and mass media is now so at odds with what we view with our own eyes and ears in daily life that it leads only to confusion and angst within our minds. For the individual has an innate sense of the truth, and of what is right.

The disconnect between main street and wall street, between good government and the dysfunctional bureaucracy that rules our lives, between noble leadership and self-serving politicians and between central bank policy and economic reality is fast becoming so acute it is almost laughable were it not so serious and perilous.

Joseph Goebbels famously said: ‘If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.’

On the other hand, an ancient wisdom is that the truth will out in the end. Another ancient wisdom is that continuous effort is needed to maintain order; left to itself it will quickly degenerate into disorder. Whereas disorder will not automatically change into order. Effort must be put forward to end it.

Think of a room in your house. You can clean it and leave it and it will eventually need cleaning again. But if you leave it long enough it will not automatically clean itself. The law of entropy rules the material world. Everything eventually decays.

Order is also a prerequisite of beauty. Although beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, there are certain symmetries, aesthetics and characteristics of beauty that come from order. We all feel more comfortable and at ease amidst order than we do in chaos. Order and discipline are essential features of a successful life.

The word cosmos is the opposite of chaos, and the universe is an inherently ordered place. Things work better if kept in order rather than allowed to deteriorate. Order is the essential characteristic of a well-functioning life.

Beyond beauty is love. This trilogy of order, beauty and love go together in a harmonious whole. Order is the root; beauty the stem and love the blossom.

Disorder and chaos breed ugliness and destruction. Order and beauty are the building blocks of creation. Disharmony brings decay, stagnation and disintegration. Harmony inspires growth, peace and prosperity.

Time will tell whether the lies of this false narrative herald the decay of this current civilisation or the rise of a better world. But if it is the latter, it should not need to censor, cancel and condemn those with an alternate point of view for truth, order and beauty, in the end, depend upon a breadth of vision and a harmony of opposing opinions not a centrally imposed point of ‘truth.’

For love to truly flower, true tolerance and inclusivity is necessary, not just that aligned with the existing ‘order’ or should I say disorder.

Never doubt your own ability to ascertain the truth for yourself. Do not abandon your own inner truth and guidance system for the current version of reality that is circulating the world as it is based on a premise of disorder and ugliness that does not come from love but from pure selfishness and greed for power and wealth based on the domination of others.

Order, beauty and love are the hallmarks of freedom; tyranny the outcome of deceit and treachery.
