Blood Sacrifice
A Discussion of Sacrifice in American Culture with Lynn Lockhart

James, thank you for this outstanding piece.  You have, once again, surprised me with the direction that you have taken my inquiry, and the depths you explore.  You have identified ways in which Americans sacrifice, going back into our history, even in this most materialistic society.  It seems an intrinsic human trait, that is bound to express itself, in a way offering hope for the survival of the human spirit.


Lynn, I do think that the human willingness to sacrifice will offer hope as long as we remain human. In the near term, however, I am afraid that most thinking people in the Western World have elected to sacrifice their bloodline on the myriad altars of the God of Things, as I term materialism, a manmade force that seems to have accumulated more worshippers than any of the many version of supernatural God we have managed to address.

In the long term, we must be on the lookout for the sure-to-come attempts to gather human reproduction as corporate resources, with the ultimate goal being the sterilization of humanity into nothing more than meat-puppets.

Thanks for the hard question.

I like your comments, Lynn, James, watch Prometheus, this film tries to address, in Tinsel town fashion, the sacrifice of your own blood to further your ideals, what are you willing to give up? To progress your tribe, my still uncorellated,

chaotic mind can not properly connect the dots, yet! Which I believe, but can't prove, because you have to shuffle off this mortal slave planet to find out.

We try to stave off death, which in my opinion is the ultimate sin of ingratitude, why we do this perplexed me, I see rebirth all around, feeding off death, trying to extend giving back what we owe, the world is full of greed, material useless items, my hypocrisy, and the other meat puppets, I smile when I hear this term, have lost vision of our true purpose, we have bleed the earth, she will have her sacrifice, for wasting the gifts of life, as we all consume the sacred fire of mortal being, time to pay up, we followed along willing, we all will pay up, some more than others.
