How am I thinking? or The tree huggers have Lost.

I read, but I don’t know if I read like normal people.  I don’t just read a book, I hoover them, I snort them, I get lost in a book for hours until it ends and suddenly I look up and realize I don’t know what day it is.  That’s how I am with most things, I don’t know why.

When I have questions of self, I don’t ask mundane questions like ‘Who Am I?’  That’s obvious.  I am easily categorized.  According to statistics I am a lower-middle class recent graduate.  Statistically I have probably been to more countries and states than most other people in the US, but that doesn’t get me a medal.

I think more in terms of, “How am I thinking?”  “Why am I thinking?”  “What is the purpose of this thinking?”  But that line of thinking inevitably leads to my analysis.  As a species, humanity is finished.  Why?  Because we have ceased expanding outward.  We are not colonizing the moon, the depths of the ocean, or mars.  Instead all of tax money and private investment is spent on researching how to brain-wash the masses into liking the latest trends or simply predicting them.

Either a natural disaster is going to wipe us off the planet or we’re going to do it ourselves one day.  Even if we don’t, because of a concept called ‘planned obsolescence’ all our energy is expended in constantly replacing the products that wear out, by design of course.  Instead of building houses made of stone that last a thousand years, they are built from wood and barely last 30.  Instead of building cars that last 100 years, we have cars that just now barely last 250,000 miles.  Yes, it sounds like a lot when you speak in those terms, but how many generations of people have lived in the Stones homes of Greece and Italy?  Before the purely evil concept of ‘planned obsolescence’ was forged and put forward as a ‘good thing’ that ‘helps keep people employed.’

The tree huggers have lost.  How do I know?  Because they have no idea what planned obsolescence is.  The tree huggers are so snow-balled I’m surprised they even bother spiking trees.  I have a rule.  I won’t kill anything that is older than me.  I don’t believe I have the right.  If a tree is less than my age, I’ll hack it down or burn it alive, but any tree (or person/animal) that is above my age, I won’t do anything to damage.  But it really doesn’t matter, because concepts like ‘planned obsolescence’  will keep humanity stripping the earth down to it’s last blade of grass for generations to come.   Instead of going after the root of the problem. ‘public and private policy’ tree huggers attack the symptom, tree cutting.  The loggers aren’t cutting down trees because they want to, they’re cutting down the trees because they need to be paid.  Meanwhile, people like me with two masters degrees sit in judgement of them simply for wanted to earn an honest wage.
But you want to know how I absolutely am certain that the tree huggers have lost?  Because America has lost.  China and India have won, most likely because they don’t have what America has when it comes to the environment, a conscience. ..




Life is Grand!

I consider that I have nothing to complain about, not really.

I am in good health and I live in the US where we are fairly free, but the buck seems to stop there.

I graduated cum laud with two masters degrees in areas of expertise that are in semi-high demand (not anything cliche) only to be told, “Sorry, we’re out of jobs.  Check back in a few years. ”

But that’s not entirely true, I can get a job making minimum wage, fight my way up the ladder to forty maybe fifty thousand a year, seventy thousand if the odds all fall in my favor, which they never do.

But the thought of it disgusts me.  I tried it out, during college I worked full time from 5am to 4pm and went to uni from 6pm to 10pm EVERY, SINGLE, DAY, for 7 years, then I graduated cum laud with TWO Masters degrees, no easy feat.

And now I’m here.  Where?  I am here, writing this to you.  The best job I have found of late is $12 an hour for Security work, but it’s not about the money, it never was, but the thing is, I have no idea what it IS about.

During the Cold War the people of the United States were told, “We HAVE to contain the Soviet Union!”  But why?  We were not told WHY we had to contain then.  They did terrible things to the countries they took over, yes, but why was that the problem of the people of the United States?  Why didn’t Europe with their systems that are SO Much better than ours rise to the occasion?  Afterall, it’s THEIR backyard, not OURS.

The more I study history, politics, and examine just how We the People are fed these lies, put in stocks, and made to push ‘the great wheel of progress’, the more I think it’s all just made up.  All of it.

Global warming, Global cooling, Capitalism, Socialism, they’re all just theories, most of them aimed at ways of controlling the masses.

Why is it that the countries that are most free are also the most prosperous.  Don’t take my word for it, go to wikipedia, look up the freedom index and then the gdp and purchase power parity indexes and see for yourself.  Or don’t, I don’t care, I’m not your guide counselor or your teacher.

We in the US must have really good lives compared to those in the EU with their 40 days of paid holiday and their fully-paid government health-care.  I wonder, how does their government afford that?  The United States is 200% more resource rich than most of those European countries, and yet we are constantly told by the media that the US is struggling.  Where is the money going?  Is there some giant money plug that someone pulled with the money draining into someone’s accounts?

Is it true that there are people in the United States so rich that they have become Kings?  Untouchable by the rules and regulates that govern We the People in the middle and lower classes?  So we have Kings now?  The United States, the former Republic to which it has fallen, one nation divide by wealth, divisible by the account numbers assigned by bankers.

It’s reverse auschwitz, only this time it’s those with the numbers who are the guards and the rest of us who are being led along to the slaughter.  Think about it.  How many people do you know who have lost their homes, their valuables, their mode of transportation?

It’s not physical slaughter, it’s more subtle than that.  It’s slaughter of our livelihood.  It’s not some great conspiracy, it’s much more simple than that.  I am a super-rich person with an army of investment bankers, stock-brokers, and ex-military spec-ops guards.   Essentially, I am untouchable, unassailable by any except God or His rival.  I lose a lot of money when some very large banks fail, so I make a call.  I say, “YOU WILL GET ME MY MONEY BACK AND THEN DOUBLE IT, OR ELSE.”  And so my bidding is done, because afterall, everyone works for me.

Here’s a little tid-bit that I learned.  If you draw a line from the old-moneyed elites, the aristocracy in Europe, and trace the linage from there to today, most of the same people have similar amounts of money.  Nothing has changed, we are still ruled by an aristocracy, but it’s simply hidden away now, more subtle, and of course they, even the old-moneyed elites have to compete with others in institutions like Harvard, or else simply pay their way through.

Don’t believe me?  For your reference:  Buy it, Pirate it, he wont care, he did it for the fame, not the money.  A movie by the heir to the Proctor and Gamble fortune.

Wealth and Democracy
Oh and there are more and more and more, so many that you could get a Ph.D simply in tracing money from the aristocratic wealthy in Europe through to today.

Hiding from what?

Think about the world outside. Now think about your habits, the movies, tv, or games you use to distract yourself from reality.

NOW, think about all of it TAKEN AWAY. How would you feel? Examine your life with ALL of your distractions taken away.

Examine your life with ONLY your Job, your Friends, your Family, you Car, you Home, but NO DISTRACTIONS from it.

How do you feel now? Terrified? What would you fill your hours with? What would you use to distract yourself from…MUNDANIA. If you’re reading this now, you’re probably thinking this is all about YOU, but it’s not. I am the worst one of you…of us. We hide in our sports, in our books, in our games, in our reality tv, or even in our ‘cultural norms.’

We have been brainwashed to accept this White-Wash reality around us, this beige benign existence.

But there are some who have gotten away…somewhat. Those bikers you see riding together? A form of freedom, but also (possibly) a form of distraction.

These distractions, these things we use to distract ourselves, they are filler to keep us sane, a normal reaction of the mind that recoils at the sheer boredom of our lifestyles. Instead of trying to constantly improve our lives and ourselves we distract ourselves. We distract ourselves with work, with play, but do we focus on actually improving our life?

What’s the latest craze? Sparkly vampires, sickeningly cute, but also immortal and bad-boyish. And for men, UFC, ultimate fighting, with each year seeing more and more rules added in order to make it ‘safer’ and more ‘mainstream’. more white-wash, more beige, more mundane. It sickens me.
