Profound Failure

London 2012: Missiles may be placed at residential flats 

The Ministry of Defence is considering placing surface-to-air missiles on residential flats during the Olympics.
An east London estate, where 700 people live, has received leaflets saying a "Higher Velocity Missile system" could be placed on a water tower.
A spokesman said the MoD had not yet decided whether to deploy ground based air defence systems during the event.
But estate resident Brian Whelan said firing the missiles "would shower debris across the east end of London".
The present reality of international Olympic competition: missiles for security.

Actually, it is a symbol and emblem and semiotic for the present stage of Western Civilization, and points up the profound failure of policy, which has led to a frame of mind that thinks it normal and de rigeur that missiles be located next to the Track and Field venue.

This is the inevitable result of a profound failure of policy, of politics, of religion, and of philosophy: a profound failure whose foundations are deep and abyssal and are rooted in the ancient tectonics of hatred and discord.
The past 60 plus years constitutes an ongoing journal of spiritual failure to deal with genocidal rage. Thus far, we have made things worse, and have set up false idols and instituted inane shibboleths to protect against our base instincts, but to no avail, for we have driven things to the point of missiles in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets!

Look about ourselves!
How many failures do we canonize? How many evils have we introduced into our catechisms as virtue?

We have missiles... and we see Peace.
We have exorbitant contortions at fouling the environment and fracking oil... and we call it Energy Policy.
We see religious groups amassing money... and we call them "Good Shepherds". (What passes for spirituality is a person playing Sports praying on cable TV.)

We are too eager for our own dogs which eat ordure.
