Despite the varnish of advancement I think it’s clear that our civilization is about as ignorant and dumb as it’s ever been.
The carnival continues. 🙂🎠🎡
America has emboldened stupid people in order to take advantage of them. That’s the premise of el capitalismo. You keep a steady supply of ignorant cash cows and the party keeps spinning on and on. Right?? That’s what people dream about when they say “economic growth”. Infinite growth is a fantasy of idiots.
The good news is that stupid isn’t permanent. Nobody is born stupid. You can change stupid. Stupid people are kept stupid for a reason. In fact if they are taught well enough they will keep themselves stupid. That’s when you know the Masters have done their job well; the stupid refuse any effort to assist them out of their stupidity. That’s when you get (white) people who will bomb buildings and crash cars into protesters and chop up homeless people with swords.
I just signed up to go to an event tomorrow night. I strongly encourage you to keep up the momentum that we generated going into these midterm elections and show this corrupt administration that this battle has only just begun and no one is backing down.
Whew! Boy oh boy! You can’t put it any more plainly than that. This article really spells it all out; Republicans, Donald Trump, conservatism (I’m expanding here, myself) they are all antithetical, actually hostile in word and deed to the teachings of Jesus Christ. They defame Jesus Christ every time they invoke the church, the word of God, their own farcical convictions. It is a travesty. Anyone with an inkling of faith in Jesus Christ would renounce the Republican Party for what it is, was, and is shaping up to be. Cast it aside along with those who would ride on its coattails such as our illustriously goldflaked doofus-in-chief, Herr Drumpf, Donald J. Trump.
This kind of stuff is just fascinating to me. 🙂 Imagining the nuts and bolts of what goes into this kind of an experience. I’m sure he’s king of the world as far as he knows (thank you Steely Dan and Yertle the 🐢, 🙂👍💜).
And now I’m having a harder and harder time tagging and categorizing news items related to Herr Drumpf because this really isn’t politics. Politics is the arena in which these decisions are being made but it really isn’t politics is it? It’s lunacy and fascism but it’s basically about changing the rules of the game and stealing things. It’s a crash and grab; is that what it’s called?
What a massive failure to understand what is happening. These people have so little left to lose that they are willing to risk their lives and the lives of their children, to throw themselves under the pitiful mercy of the brutal nation that is the United States of America in hopes of securing a better life for themselves.
The USA looks a whole lot different on the outside than it does on the inside, folks.
Sure, of course there are some things that happen in the USA that are NOT savage and inhumane. We all know that (from the endless movies and TV shows and sitcoms and magazines and stories and books and lectures and history books and textbooks…). But that is not worth talking about right now. Because that is not what is killing people and ruining lives and preventing human progress. The things that are actually causing dire consequences at this moment is what we should be focusing on not how pretty we were last year at the beach.
