Menschleins Rauschen tönt so bang

Wie es der Zufall will, habe ich vor wenigen Tagen ein interessantes Interview gehört, das sich mit eben diesem, zur Zeit im LJ herumgeisternden Thema beschäftigt. Anbei das Transkript einiger Passagen:

"Three times in my life I tried to walk away from, forget about the things that I had seen that were so wack, that were so crazy, that were so wrong. That's what many people urged me to do. What inevitably happened every time I tried to walk away from this path that I walk was that everything else in my life would be taken away from me. So this path was the only thing left. I had no other choice...
I don't do debates any more, and the reason why I don't do debates any more is, because I don't have to. At some point you have to acknowledge the fact that whatever I've been writing about and what I been saying is actually happening all around us. So why do I need to debate anything?...
So forget the idea that you could have as much as you want because, until mankind surrenders to the fact that it lives on a finite planet and it must have balance with the planet's resources, with the animal life and all the other life, there can be no happiness for anything...
Either evolve or perish. Either you grow up or die. God doesn't care. God's not a babysitter for us. The challenge is - either you grow up and mature, change your mind and the way you think, or you perish... We find the richness, what the human soul can offer, and I see all that richness buried under such - bullshit!...
The only thing in the world that you and I can possibly change to give ourselves a chance of survival and to give our children a chance at some kind of human civilized life is our minds..."

So do you feel that the work that you do, you do it regardless of what the possible consequences are? It just will be so much easier to walk away.
"If there was a German in 1932/33 who had the foresight to look ahead and to see what the inevitable end result of the 3rd Reich would be, if there was somebody who had seen that coming, do you honestly think, that they could, in good conscious, turn around and walk away from it and pretend it wasn't there?!... We are all collectively, as a species, responsible for what may be the greatest preventable holocaust in the history of planet Earth. Our own suicide. How do you walk away from that? How do you sleep at night? Who is anybody, who are you, to tell me it would have been easier to walk away? You weren't in my skin. It was never easier to walk away, because to walk away would have meant to compromise. To walk away would have meant to selling out."
(Michael Ruppert in: Collapse. 2009)

Sechseinhalb Milliarden Menschen gehen sechseinhalb Milliarden verschiedene Lebenswege. Vermutlich gibt es auch ebensoviele Methoden, diese Wege in Schemata einzuordnen, wobei jedes Schema für eine Entscheidung steht. Für mich lief es immer und immer wieder auf eine Frage hinaus: Lässt du dich vom Plätschern, vom Hintergrundrauschen einlullen, lässt du dich treiben - oder lebst du bewusst und gibst deinem Dasein eine Richtung. Oft genug ist mir Letzteres misslungen, war der Schmerz so groß, dass ich Betäubung suchte. Und fand.
Aber ich kann nicht dauerhaft wegsehen. Liegen Dinge einmal auf der Hand, kann ich nicht einfach weitermachen, als wäre alles beim Alten. Musik, Status, Arbeit, Einkaufsrausch, die liebevoll gehätschelte Depression, der nächste Fick - wo sie die Stelle von Lebensinhalten einnehmen, trüben sie den Blick fürs Wesentliche. Und während ich akzeptieren kann, dass die Mehrzahl meiner Mitmenschen offensichtlich nichts Anderes im Sinn hat, als täglich die selben Rituale aufs Neue zu begehen, steht mir der Sinn danach, mich auf die Suche zu begeben: nach Ursachen des Schmerzes und nach Quellen der Heilung. Und ehrlich gesagt stört das Rauschen dabei ganz enorm.
