There were probably many times throughout history where humanity begged for the “second coming” – in whatever form. Then again, how would we know for sure…texting, Twitter, Facebook and other guano-filled social media outlets weren’t available to the suffering souls of the past.
Yet today, where one knows every boring, sordid, ugly, nauseating, eye-rolling thought and deed of every lost soul – the evidence cannot be ignored… and the plea goes out – please, whoever started all this – come and stop this shit – for those in power in the U.S. have the demise of us all dancing like sugar plums in their demonic minds, with most Americans clueless and apathetic of their prison cell treatment from their government.
We here in America don’t know what it’s like to have our towns, villages, cities lacerated to rubble – because it’s not covered by the mainstream media. Therefore, it isn’t happening.
Most Americans are unaware of the 7,000 US service men and women who have given their lives since 9/11, or of the $5.7 Trillion spent on these wars against sovereign nations who haven’t done anything to us. How many would care even if they knew? On top of these sickening “statistics” – one can add on 200,000 civilians whose lives have been ended because of these wars. And what has America gained from these deaths? Only that a nation has lost its’ soul.
But you can bet your smartphone that most Americans are completely aware of the most inconsequential shyte, the most mundane of life – the most ugly of nonsense that is shoved down their throats each and every day – compliments of their government and their ass-sucking, side-kicks of horseshit in the mainstream media.
America is now being lectured with lessons on life from a 19-year-old (we think that’s his age, but aren’t sure) with the solid backing of corporate America. An article via CNN praises the wisdom of a 13 year old running for governor. Predictably, these cats of the modern day of “cool”, aren’t protesting the bombs, guns and military death machines of their government that end the lives of thousands upon thousands of innocents. Soon, we may be channeling fetuses of what the choicest action should be to lift up a country that has lost its’ way, its’ heart and its’ soul. Why not – the “adults” in America have lost interest.
We have Israeli Prime Minister, Netanyahu, praising Israeli troops after they killed 16 Palestinian protesters. Will teenagers march on Washington en masse to protest this senseless loss of life? Will they march en masse to protest the criminals in Washington and their never-ending wars that end the lives of thousands of their fellow citizens and human beings in sovereign nations? Probably not because such murderous actions aren’t covered by the mainstream media. And of course, there is no corporate sponsor for such spokespersons or protests.
Instead, we have that “evil” country, Russia, responsible for every calamity that befalls anybody, anywhere, being the only sane voice condemning the Israeli violence against Palestinian protesters on the Gaza border. One would think the US would have a thing or two to say about such senseless killings, or the 19 year old lecturer, or the 13 year old running for governor – instead, we have the US blocking a UN resolution seeking a Gaza inquiry.
But Washington can actually give a shyte about what it wants to, as evidenced when it gives the murderous Saudi crown the red carpet treatment. No teenagers or adults can be found, out in force, protesting such insanity.
And yet, the few individuals who speak truth are demonized as enemies of the state:
Julian Assange is currently under siege in the Ecuadorian embassy, deprived of mobility, sunlight and healthcare, and now internet, phone calls and visitors, all because he dared to bring some transparency to the powerful. Meanwhile the intelligence and defense agencies who serve as the armed goon squad of the wealthy and the powerful are able to kill, destroy and pillage from behind the opaque walls of near-total government secrecy in the name of “national security”. And instead of defending the single defenseless man who speaks truth to power, mainstream media reporters around the world are spitting on him in near-unanimity because he hurts power’s feelings. – via email@example.com
Where are the protests for this type of injustice?
Social media arguments and comical Twitter spats abound of the inconsequential and the absurd. Even a casual “look-in” of mainstream media offerings and the current slop that’s passed off as news and entertainment can leave any person of taste or one seeking the truth with the strongest of sensations that they may vomit at any moment from being exposed to their tripe.
If this were all some bad movie, as most movies made in Hollywood are these days, one could let it slide off the back of their neck with their normal, apathetic interest in anything outside themselves. But all this is not a movie.
The road to hell isn’t paved with good intentions in the modern era, it’s paved with the meanderings of psychopath’s who spew out their venom with murder, wars, disharmony, hatred, disillusionment, discord and disenchantment – sadly, many follow these nutjobs’ nightmares of how we, the unwashed masses, should live.
About anything that the media crowns as “cool”, the lemmings in America will pull themselves up from the quagmire of insanity they live in, and queue up in the adoration line of the media’s blessed sacrament de jour. And yet their offerings are nothing more than empty, soulless tantrums of idiot savants posing as intellectuals and misfits, crowned as gods because they spout the current corporate and government insanity of death and destruction…in every country but theirs.
“The most erroneous assumption is to the effect that the aim of public education is to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence, and so make them fit to discharge the duties of citizenship in an enlightened and independent manner. Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States, whatever the pretensions of politicians, pedagogues and other such mountebanks, and that is its aim everywhere else.”
― H.L. Mencken
The real lessons of life are typically not learned until one has advanced well beyond the age of teenage angst, and sometimes, they are never learned. If there’s any doubt of that, just cast your gaze on the “adults” running the show.
And if you’re still not convinced, just watch your local news program for their latest offering in mind control…
This is what mind control looks like:
The insanity of a America’s leaders and corporate hooligans who have lost their way, their soul, their heart, their compassion (if they ever had any of these traits)…this is who we continue to listen to and put up with each day.
Just a dropping of the latest guano offered us…the Washington Post has decided that pulling our troops out of Syria…is a bad idea. By all means, we need to keep our troops there for more state-dictated killings – those that teenagers and adults won’t protest.
We shake our heads and wonder…what is wrong with America. That’s an easy one…we continue to listen, consume and obey the insanity offered us.
“Don’t overestimate the decency of the human race.” ~ H. L. Mencken
