The Future is Here…and it Continues to Suck

With sanity disappearing from America and the West as quickly as a 16 ounce Porterhouse steak left unattended will be devoured by your dog, few people are wondering, “how will it all end?”

Not to worry.  For whatever ring of Hell the current insanity leads America and the West into, any unpleasant or even gruesome memories of it all, given that you survive, can be blissfully erased in a scant 23 minutes, provided it was a TV show (or so they say).

And since the modern era seems like one, never-ending horrific TV show – you have a chance at forgetting whatever ring of Hell you may have stumbled upon, compliments of a company that makes TV’s, because, after all, what in the hell would we do without them?

 

Can life get any stranger in the modern era?  Sure it can…and will.

Within three years, the Pentagon’s non-lethal weapons lab hopes to have a direct energy weapon that can produce an effect like a haunted walkie-talkie or the biblical burning bush.

Good Lord!  Don’t we have enough lunacy coming our way 24/7 just from living?

You saunter out the front door one fine, summer evening and there before you is the biblical burning bush. But since it’s not a TV show, you can’t just go to Samsung for a little memory wipe, you have to quickly figure out…1) what’s a burning bush, 2) what’s a bible, or our preference, ignore it and go back inside and have a cocktail.

Evidently, the mensa’s at the Pentagon haven’t figured out most of the general public in the West haven’t a clue about history, religion, God, and couldn’t even make a guess of what a walkie-talkie might be.

A $700 Billion military budget for FY 2018 allows for some choice guano production.

And more “good news”…

Scientists have developed an astonishing mind-reading machine which can translate what you are thinking and instantly display it as text.

In the post-modern world where nearly everything originating from the West is one make-believe fairy tale of hogwash, and if not utter bullocks, then the most depressing rot one can imagine – from magic nerve agents used as poison that was administered in at least 4 or 5 different ways (just pick your favorite), blamed on a nuclear, sovereign nation with no proof, (just like those WMD’s that were never found), fueling more “Russo-madness” – to the depressing rot of reality from Facebook and their latest shenanigans (and here), to 3000+ Google employees demanding the company stop with their work on the Pentagon drone project, and so much other depressing rot that if listed, I should probably include some sort of “help-line” to get you through it.

In the apathetic United States of America, we care so much for our children that we send their fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and loved ones to fight the never-ending wars Washington dreams up to accomplish regime change and keep the boys at Manhattan executive offices of the corporations supplying weapons of murder and destruction fat and happy.  We care so much for our children that teachers have to work 2 and sometimes 3 jobs in some states to make ends meet. We care so much for our children that we allow Washington to mandate our children are vaccinated with vaccines, the likes of Gardisil that has now been determined, by a court ruling, that Gardisil kills.

But if you listen to the mainstream media, everything wrong with America is either Russia or Trump’s fault, or the media’s boogey-man of the day.  Much of all that is wrong, all that Americans and the West are so apathetic about – declining culture, demonization of religion, a celebration of the ugly, the arguing, the never-ending wars, the almost blissful unawareness of others suffering…our poor, our elderly, our homeless and yes, our children, and insouciance for the truth, started long ago…because we let it.

I could go on…but I’ll let a much superior mind that mine sum it up:

We are not in a fight of warring ideologies at this time. Right now we are under the jackboot of a sociopathic class of elites who use propaganda to manipulate the way we think and keep us divided against each other. We are being bombed by war planes and we’re at each other’s throats arguing about whether swords or battle axes are best for fighting back.

Ultimately what we are pushing towards is not an ideological revolution but a biological healing process, in which our species learns to collectively expel from its operating system the power-serving mind viruses inflicted upon it by the ruling elites via media psyops. We will necessarily have to collectively find a way to eject the propaganda narratives which have us either cheering for Trump to escalate tensions with Russia and Syria or cheering for him to cut taxes and regulations on US oligarchs while accepting a model where no matter who leads the official US government you wind up with neoliberal Orwellian oppression at home and neoconservative slaughter and nuclear brinkmanship abroad. – Caitlin Johnstone – via caitlinjohnstone.com
