In life, there will always be more than enough cause to be disheartened or saddened. And what makes the feeling of disheartenment and sadness even worse is when the things you said a long time ago on the internet and social media end up becoming established and self-evident truths without getting any credit or recognition whatsoever for saying those things. For instance, the “House of Cards” which Pakistan was built on and kept erect by Washington for all these years is now manifest to all and sundry, even though it was manifest to many of us a long time ago. Lambasting Ashraf Ghani on Twitter in 2018 and seeing him for what he really was, while everyone else was googly-eyed and lustfully silent is also a cause for annoyance and irritation. However, what one comes to realize upon reflection is that if the intent and purpose for saying things was to receive acknowledgment and recognition from a bunch of shills, then the intent and purpose was incorrect and wrongheaded. To my credit, however, I did not know what my intent and purpose was for saying things and writing until recently.
But perhaps one will end up cutting himself or herself some slack when one relates themselves to the countless young and naïve persons in Washington who initially fail to realize how vital and important it is to develop a sense of self-reliance and to develop the ability to peer into the real meaning and intent behind liberal and Zionist handouts. In order to truly realize how vital and important it is to develop a sense of self-reliance as well as the ability to peer into the real meaning and intent behind liberal and Zionist handouts in Washington, it takes an exhaustive self-education which virtually 99 or even 99.9 percent of people do not have the time or means to undertake.
But on the flipside, disdain and scorn towards certain people comes from the fact that certain people fail to put in the effort to develop a sense of self-reliance and an ability to peer into the real meaning and intent behind liberal and Zionist handouts, despite the so-called “pull yourself by the bootstraps” culture which is touted to the external world and is the perceived source of “American Exceptionalism.”
One would also put in the effort to develop a sense of self-reliance and the ability to peer into the real meaning and intent behind liberal and Zionist handouts if one were to know and understand how long and painful the process is of getting out of the grip of the karma stemming from a sense of dependence and pandering towards liberal and Zionist handouts once the hysteria and mania passes. And in this regard, it is quite true that “the first is the last and the last is the first” in the sense that those who were the first to traverse the hysteria and mania were the last to get the full experience before the hysteria and mania passed. And on the other hand, the last to get the full experience before the hysteria and mania passed are the first to tell you about the hardships and pain once the hysteria and mania passes.
