From Alan Forrest Smith That’s another one down, so who’s next? Money, scandal, sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll, plastic fantastic, man in a bubble, who’s behind the mask … PERVERT, child star becomes King of pop and the media circus has a field day in the marketing room. Did you notice the word that was missing? HEART. How many times can you rip out a mans heart and put it back in again? Such a crying shame, another icon of modern times pummeled into the ground for the sake of sales until he drops dead. And when they do drop dead … sales increase… open those cash lines boys! I know, I know, it was his own fault! Shut up, you say that you are a heartless result of human ideology also. And it’s a sickening scourge of mankind that has been around since Nimrod ruled Babylon and Caesar lorded over Rome. Yes they had their stars, spoiled, abused and used until death. The death brought the ultimate glory for them (and the sales machine) Sickeningly, disgustingly sad reflection of the greedy heart of man! But really Michel Jackson… I don’t claim to know him or anything about him. But wow, did I feel for him when I saw him on TV. His heart had been torn out so many times, how many times can it be put back in and expected to keep pumping? Yeah, yeah, yeah… it was his fault he was weird! You know what weirdness really is? It’s when we don’t understand something so we default to a deeply seated belief that we have simply ‘picked’ up along the road of life. So when we say ‘weird’ we don’t really mean weird. We simply reject what is unfamiliar to us because we don’t understand it. Sadly, most never take the time to understand, most of us simply GO-WITH-THE-FLOW… and that really is weird. So Jacko, you have to hand it to that guy, he did things his way. A total genius that never allowed his head to be overgrown by grown-up-isms. You know, dress like this, follow these rules, do it this way, do it that way. The man was uniquely eccentric to a masterful level. Beautiful to see a human following his life like that or weird? I know, I know… I don’t get it now either. But you know what… Jacko had a heart. His heart had been ripped out so many times for the sake of sales, how many times can a heart be put back in? Damage after damage. 2 Heart attacks and you survive. 3 and you’re dead! Have you been exposed, shamed and talked about in public. Lies, half-truths and mountains of inaccuracies about you? It hurt right? It was painful? You can think back to that moment right now and feel that pain? And can you recall how your HEART felt? Tight, sore, breathless, palpitating? I know that feeling… OUCHHHH! The heart is a muscle. That muscle has love. When that love is hammered out into the ground continually, the heart WILL face certain death. What a mental Life Jacko had in the media. No wonder he didn’t want to leave his home. No wonder it appeared he was on the run. No wonder he put himself through so much. His religious beliefs, tortured and shamed for them as childlike and cult-fed.. His physical appearance, dramatic as it was, gave him labels hard for any man to carry. His relationships with wives, ex-wives, kids, his kids, someone else kids any kids. The heartache of losing all of that and his financial situation after spend, spend, spend and the parasitical lawyers and PR gurus that sucked his blood from each and every vein. So? It was his life, it was up to him… who really wants approval from the pack? No wonder this genius dropped dead, the MEDIA killed him like so many before them. I can see them this morning, the best day ever for selling newspaper’s, stories, emotionless emotion and words of unfelt love pouring from their dribble packed vocal chords. Sales, sales and more sales. How many times can you remove the heart of a man and expect the heart to keep pumping, living and surviving? Shocked? Not really. This is just another story of modern times. It’s the story of the lack of understanding about humanity and how and what human beings NEED to live, to survive, to keep pumping. They removed everything they could from Jackson… EVERYTHING… a man stripped bare, removed of his dignity and privacy. Talk about human rights, this guy had NONE and the media loved it. Is this a case of selling your soul to the devil for fame? I have no idea. All I know is what I see time and time again. How often can the heart of a man be ripped out and put back in? SICKENING! Today is the day of Assassin-Jackson-Action Who cares… NEXT PLEASE?
