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.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
