A Brief Glance at Today and the Future

Back in the early 2000s I recall people being very divided over the War on Terror, with most right wingers wanting to “turn the Middle East into a parking lot” and the left being very anti-war. The divisiveness was almost as bad as today. One thing is indelibly clear throughout history, spanning back decades and decades and decades, is people are often archly divided over important societal topics. I used to collect old newspapers and spent hundreds of hours reading the commentary from the 17 and 1800s and can tell you people in the United States were very much against the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Why, Canada was a supporter of the very “Racist” Confederacy, citing Union imperialism as something of a wedge between the two young nations and preferred if the South had won the war.

Just last year we were very divided along racial lines and today we are very much divided on the most absurd and obscene thing imaginable: who is medicated and who isn’t.

I don’t pretend like others to think people will ever unite and push back against the evil and corrupt governments because as bad as they are — what is the alternative? Show me an alternative and perhaps I can support it. Until then, we degenerate and inflate and debase and degenerate and slip and fall and speed towards collapse.

This collapse I speak of might not happen in our lifetimes and it’s important to understand how these things play out, slow and methodical but almost assuredly final. Whatever replaces this system is bound to be worse and by the looks of all of the great many resets taking place, I think it’s safe to say people who were lucky enough to grow up and play ball in the streets during the 1980s were not only fortunate, but blessed.

Our world is very connected now and information is free — but we are very quickly heading towards some sort of dark and twisted upside down world where narcissists with God complexes pervert the truth and censor it and hide it and invert it all for some grim future where all kneel to idols and comply with government demands.

No and no.

With that, I bid you adieu for the evening. I have a vodka and tonic waiting for me and a full day ahead of feverish trading, as I attempt to recover from a rough start to September.

    Not in our lifetimes? Well, gotta love the wild ass optimist …I guess.

    The Chinese are unified (relative to us) and they are producers. And history suggests that unified producers are likely prevail over what we have become.

    I just don’t know why the people running the place are seeking to divide us ….why is the tick killing the dog?

      Not a God complex, but perhaps some form of Dunning Krueger, an attempt at retaining control.

        Dunning Krueger great observation but def a great deal of throwing shades of a God complex. Too many people want God in their everyday lives. God loves them and thinks they are perfect just the way they are. No reason to have to think, learn and change oneself. Sadly, too many ppl do not have the necessary introspective IQ.

    Gin&Tonic for me; I pray for the day when people kneel and comply with the demands of their government. So I could feel safe and comfortable and my wife is not worried at all when I go to work in the East New York neighborhood.

    Perhaps the best is yet to come.

    I just can’t understand – they have not isolated the virus.
    Why does Klaus Schwab think his Rothschild ass is going to live?

    I think we shall return to kick ball soon.

    “…I don’t pretend like others to think people will ever unite and push back against the evil and corrupt governments because as bad as they are — what is the alternative?…”
    – We HAD the alternative – his name was Donald J Trump. A man who unlike the Demonrat politicians was a billionaire BEFORE he entered politics and drew a salary of $1. He made peace in the Mid East, made America prosper and pushed smaller government and freedom..and the MSM HATED him for it. THEY wanted the DEM machine back in power – a 3rd term for Obama the Islamist, and they brainwashed just enough morons to hate Trump – NOT based on his lack of accomplishments, but on his PERSONALITY.

    We reap what we sow.

      Trumps fatal flaw? The fact that he is inarticulate a bit arrogant and TOO HONEST for politics. He is also the best President we ever had

      You are the reason for this mess. If we all had your intelligence, we would all have put bleach in our arms like your Führer instructed and the world would be free of Trump and this brainless followers.

      Do you think it’s just a coincidence that Trump followers have an average education of grade 7 and IQ of 70?

      Trump’s fatal flaw? Not everyone is retarded.
