Reagan began the massive
changes that forever altered “the NOW” in which we are trying to survive.
The proof of this only became apparent when Bush Jr. stole the selection
of 2000, at a time when this country had a SURPLUS instead of the current
deficit that has skyrocketed from the Bush TRILLONS into what has now
become under OBAMA - Quadrillions in the hole. This is what has so altered
the global situation, to the point that makes David Dees illustration
above, into an actual reality; instead of what should have been just
a wildly exaggerated—but isolated fact.
Of course trying to “live in the Now” is different for every human being;
according to what he or she sees as their own special priorities. The
generational differences between the last five generations is what makes
all of this so very difficult to categorize, because the scale of OPTIONS
available to anyone have shrunk to only a very few choices. Back in
the twentieth century that same table of opportunities contained hundreds
if not thousands of choices when it came to jobs or opportunities that
were available to millions of people.
At the end of the day then; there was often time to think to plan and
to enjoy whatever one had earned: Whereas now everything has become
a simple rat-race to the bottom of greed and to the extremities of arrogance
that takes no prisoners and basically shoots any survivors.
In 2002, this was how it was, with a look back into 1994.
“1994: "In the freest country on the planet, democratic political campaigns
are a ghastly joke. The ideal candidate is a cipher, devoid of personal
history. The handlers write the scripts, build the drama, concoct the
spin, and get famous themselves. Nobody expects them to believe any
of this bullshit; oye compadre, get real. The job is done with a wink,
a curled lip, a bony cynicism."
2002: Pete Hamill hit this one right on the head - that fits our mangled
and stolen, national non-election of 2000 as well as 2002 to a 'T.'
Since we were so sophisticated, so above the fray that we allowed this
cipher to steal the entire country right under our noses, it looks like
the whole world will be paying for that mistake for many years to come.
Not to even mention that this will cost most Americans vast sums of
money, and probably their comfortable way of life as well. We opened
Pandora's Box, and let the demons out, and there's no one to blame for
that but us.
1994: "Even the conflicts of the so-called real world-the non-fiction
world of news and society-must be simple, easy to follow through meals
and other domestic activities, and preferably violent - Don't think
- is the message (just) feel. In all media, the best-played stories
now are the ones that most resemble movies. Give us good guys and bad
guys, white hats and black hats, and for christsakes don't give us talking
heads! Action baby. Bang, bang, Conflict."” (1)
Fast Forward to NOW. Obviously I can’t speak for anyone but myself;
but in my case over the last 48 years I’ve done a lot of things. Some
were successful, some not. I’ve made a lot of mistakes, but I’ve added
the bulk of my work to the history of the planet, and that was good.
Some of that work was valuable (beyond just money) some was completely
beside the point—but if I want to continue to “have-a-life” then I must
be willing to cut-loose the past (To “let-go-of-the-rock”) and move
forward. Because if we seek to fully-live each coming moment then we
have to move forward. The past had very different values: But the present
is still about how we live and how we can help others to survive, especially
The native-population that was here when we arrived had a fully developed
philosophy about life and acquisitions; about sharing and growth in
order to create a more complete tomorrow for the many instead of just
the few. They knew that life was never about hanging on to a bunch of
toys or possessions, that had no real meaning, so as they began to fade
into history (we slaughtered about 60 million of them) they fought to
survive against overwhelming numbers, to try and save the best parts
of the world they had created—something we cannot say about ourselves
or our century.
What was done in the past, is the past—but what must be accomplished
now and in the future, while it might be partially based on the past—must
conform to what the realities of the actual future requires: New work,
new ways to resist the ancient tyrannies and betrayals of whole people’s.
These new realities cannot be ignored, just as we cannot cling to past
accomplishments, to remain viable: We must begin anew with a hard
look at what we have become!
All these people that want to hoard their way to survival are only deluding
themselves. No one “KNOWS” where they might be when the first of the
fatal blows will hit—and the survivors will be those that can literally
“live off the land” when the unthinkable happens. And if there is life
after the next major upheaval; then those who tried to carry “today
& yesterday” into tomorrow; will never be among the survivors that
will go on to try and start again. . .
All those end-of-the-world scenarios always show empty streets when
in fact what will happen, will most likely feature gridlock in the cities
with deserted cars and trucks everywhere making all streets and highways
impassable. Fuel supplies will be limited and even helicopters will
have problems maintaining enough fuel to fly anywhere. Fires will erupt
and there will be no way to put them out; and since neither the cops
or the hypothetical troops will be able to move, most cities will just
burn to the ground as San Francisco did in 1906. The other thing is
that those who might try and flee will not be able to carry much, and
water is very heavy. All of this speaks volumes about the absolute need
TO PREVENT the potential nuclear chaos from ever beginning, if you really
want to keep your precious toys. . .
This world for most people today is completely artificial—nothing really
matters—at least not in the real world of all those yesterday’s, that
had once been the future’s; that too many tomorrow’s too often failed
Consequently when the familiar castles of the real world collapse under
the weight of the global-lies that have brought them back to the ruins
they will become again: Most will only have themselves, locked into
their private-little-world’s to blame: For a global-world that will
suddenly no longer exist.
These PRIVATE little-world’s will FAIL because they never had any real
basis for being in the first place. Without the underpinnings of a society
that actually lives for more than petty greed and over-reaching arrogance;
the subsequent collection of bandits, murders and con-artists is hardly
enough of a reason for this place to survive. Without values or friends
what the hell is the point of all the pain and suffering without any
JOY even being “ALLOWED,” without a god-damned government permit?
This world is NO LONGER “OUR” WORLD ANYMORE!
Yesterday I took BART over to the East Bay early in the morning and
discovered what’s coming soon to that piece of government transportation.
Three burly ugly-cops got on in downtown San Francisco, and unconsciously
blocked the entrance to the car I was on due to the fact of their
double-wideness. By the time we reached the Embarcadero and the
beginning of the tube under the bay they had spread our and taken seats.
And by the time we reached Oakland they had put on ordinary UNMARKED
windbreakers that concealed their uniforms and weapons.
So apparently things on BART will begin to change again. The law says
that when an officer wears outward clothing over the uniform the jacket
needs to clearly identify the wearer as an OFFICER of whatever agency
they “serve.” These were two SFPD cops and one BART Officer—none of
them appeared to be cops after they added civilian attire—only their
distorted-facial-expressions gave them away.
Coming back during the homeward commute along with thousand’s of commuters
coming from nowhere and obviously going back to non-existence I could
not help but ponder: WHY do they do this—is it just to maintain such
empty lives. Because when you listen to them babble what their conversation
always consists of is nothingness, compounded by manufactured entertainments
that are always transitory and devoid of anything that might add to
their supposed lives. I-phones, Cell-phones, I-tunes, computers: seemingly
these people are incapable of being without any of that garbage for
even a few minutes. Three out of five have wires hanging from their
ears: Do they really envy the computers they cannot seem to live without?
When there is no longer a “real-world” to drain of all its value: What
shall they do then? The population here already seems to be nothing
more than androids animated by various vacuums that only draw them ever-deeper
into the world of the TAR-BABY, in which no one survives to live another
day. . . except those of us that know the farce for what it has always
been and chose to fight this vehemently to whatever its conclusions
turn out to be.
This is the self-interested world in which only 72 cops, nationwide,
were killed last year—but in which hundreds of these creatures sitting
around me on BART and in the buses were arrested tortured or killed
while in police custody. The city of New York only has about 60,000
cops; and about 12 million people what will happen if the 12 million
decide that it is the cops that are out of control and not the population?
Just look are how fearful the cops and the government have become just
since January 1, of this year! Hollow-point bullets by the billion,
64 thousand black-ops helicopters and over 100,000 drones: to be used
against who (all these androids that have no clue about what’s about
to happen to them since they have all been targeted as "ENEMIES OF THIS
Yuppies are very proud of “Living in the Now” except that they know
NOTHING about what that really means: Because without an accurate understanding
of what “the NOW” really is, they might as well be chasing the non-existent
RAINBOWS of their electronic dreams which they are constantly trying
to create. Only by understanding the World of the NOW which currently
exists, can we even begin to make decisions about how to survive the
coming catastrophes. . . (3)
