There is so much novel wisdom in this! This speaker puts so well what has been rumbling around in my head for the last few years, spurred on by my marooning in Mississippi, my exile from my family, and then COVID. Definitely worth listening to.
I’m continually astounded by the lack of personal accountability in our society. Finding someone who is willing to accept responsibility for something seems like a rare gem. Unfortunately there are too few of them gems and they are likely underappreciated, unacknowledged, and underpaid. Those people are what holds our society together.
Changing our stupid behavior is at least one of the things that is required, REQUIRED, in order to salvage our situation in any way. Period. Fuck the recycling, fuck the green energy, blah, blah, blah. You’re an idiot and everything you think you know should be flushed down the toilet and you should start from scratch. Re-educate yourself. Learn how to learn the right way. See the truth around you. Then, you may be able to make correct decisions and exercise good judgment. You must reign in your stupid, ignorant human “needs” like incessant meat eating, factory farming, infinite economic growth (a spoiled child’s fantasy), disposable everything…. Vast rethinking is in order or else the end will be sooner than you think. Heck, it might already be too late, who knows. 🙂 But sure as shit, if anything’s going to fix things it ain’t gonna be Silicon Valley kleptocrat oligarchs. It’s going to be normal people finally realizing, maybe too late, that everything they’ve tried before has failed. That it’s finally time to do the things they didn’t want to do, such as live responsibly, in balance with nature, in accordance with Natural Law. Do what makes sense and stop feeding your stupid human desires. Enjoy what’s around you. Enjoy life. Coexist with other humans and other species. Live deliberately in a way that allows everything on Earth to thrive. There is Heaven to be had on Earth if you are only able to allow yourself to let it occur without trying to profit from it.
I highly encourage you to pay attention to this video. I haven’t heard a more accurate, comprehensive description of our current situation. This is easily digested and should be spread widely. Please share if you like it. 🙂 Or even if you don’t!
A quick glance at some of these articles leads me to believe that we are a nation of children. And that’s “children” as-in immature, naive, juvenile. . . . At some times it looks even worse, that we’re becoming the dreaded R WORD <…retarded…>. But it is what it is, is it not? Then shut the fuck up. And grow up. We as a people need to grow the fuck up. It’s time already. Catch up with the ancient Greeks at least (who nailed it in lots of ways already!)!!! We are the most unsophisticated empire the Earth has ever seen.
The importance of this event should not be underestimated. This signals the presence of a new dark age, truly.
I, coincidentally, am involved intimately in the dynamics and themes of this darkness, as it has affected my relationship with my children because of their mother’s superstitious attitude toward life on Earth, which she inherited from her superstitious parents, particularly her mother, who likes to believe in ghosts and spirits and such.
So here we are. Where actual scientific method has been largely ruled out as something we can rely on and trust as a way of guiding us through the misty haze of evidence which is limitless. We must rely on something to guide the way, to measure what is right and wrong, what is left and right, what is odd or even. Unfortunately, despite all of the book learnin’ people have participated in over the last several decades, centuries, etc., people keep thinking that things like fragile, illogical, error-prone, synthetic belief systems such as Christianity ™ and Islam and Judaism are both relevant, important, reasonable, inherently valuable, PROVABLE, and, worst, enforceable.
Look no farther, this is the problem we face as a civilization.
