Two things everyone needs to start doing in this new era are 1) get friendly with natural psychoactive flora, (Mother Earth’s own candy, for Piet’s sake!!!!!!), and 2) DANCE. Dance all the time! There should always be music, and when you hear music you should be moving some part of your body in response. Make it a new habit if you have to think of it that way.
Having grown up in Northern Virginia, I can tell you without a doubt that it epitomizes the delusional worldview of the sickening neoliberal establishment that has given us the world we now find ourselves in. And now that they have the reigns of power in Virginia, how does it look? Is it something resembling a utopia??? Are you kidding me??? :-DDDDDDDD
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.
