Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

ranting again...

Consumerism. The economy is ruled by consumerism.

The transition from ethnic subsistance cultures to "The Modern Lifestyle".

The economics-driven wars and "interventions" to obtain by force resources the Modern Lifestylers "must have". The puppet "democracies" they enforce upon them in order to facilitate this.

The rampant out-of-controlness of globalised capitalism and the utterly insane, unfair, egocentric, greed-driven world this will create before it implodes into an economic, environmental and cultural/ethnic disaster of monumental proportions, and the death of billions that will result from this.

The way Modern Lifestylers just don't give a flying fuck about any of this as long as they're enjoying and enhancing their utterly unsustainable, exploitative and globally destructive But-Oh-So-Glitzy-Lifestyle.

The way they are making it ever-more impossible for people to live in an independently subsistant way. The way the the puppeteers of the Modern Lifestylers have astutely forseen that out there, in the real world, many in the disenfranchised majority will resort to "terrorism" and thus they have declared war on "terrorism" rather than address the causes of it, knowing, as they do, that it is what they are visiting upon these people that is breeding the "terrorism"

I can see so much that bothers me greatly yet I lack the academic and literary skills to express these things in well-thought-out or well-reasoned ways and so I stop blathering and just shut the fuck up... and then I get depressed... and then I get mad again... and I rant some more... and then I shut the fuck up again... and then I get depressed again...

You get the picture...

You've done a better job of expressing my feelings than I could have.

Yep. Agreed. Excellently put. What was all that "I lack the skills to express it" nonsense in the last paragraph about though? Tsk.

Yeah, DS and Fox... Sure...

I just keep saying the same things over and over ad infinitum.

That's marvellously elucidating.

I'm preaching to the converted. They already know this. They don't need my rants. The hypntised sheep are not going to be allowed to wake up anytime soon. I'ts not in the interests of anyone who "matters".

Unfortunately, I think it's crunch time for the world RIGHT FUCKING NOW!!!

We're at the abyss's edge. Once we go over, the only issue will be: Do we scream all the the way down or do we stay quiet?

We're witnessing the biggest-ever crime against humanity. Bigger than Hitler. Bigger than Stalin. More insane than Idi Amin. More willfully evil than Machiavelli.

And the bastards will take us all down with them. Nothing less than an immediate total crash of globalised capitalism ("it's the economy. stupid"), followed by the ultra-strict controls on businesses which MUST be made to serve socialist people's governments will turn the herd before it hurtles into the abyss.

Ironically, if enough people woke up really really soon, through their collective consumer power they could actually crash globalisation. But it would have to be concerted and deliberate.

It would cause heaps of damage, heartache and deaths, but only a small fraction of what will happen if this bunch of greedy, heartless, pathological lunatics gets to run the world much longer. [/rant]

"this is the way the world ends,
this is the way the world ends,
this is the way the world ends,
not with a bang,
but a whimper."

DS, I can never tell whether you're straight up or winding me up...

kyte, according to Google, it was TS Elliot's Hollow Men. But you knew that. Just letting you know that I had to Google it to find out. An interesting poem...

And yeah, "easier said than done" sums it up. No-one's going to take down globalised capitalism. What will happen is shit. We're seeing th trashing of a planet in order to pander to an elite on whom we will be utterly dependent for our jobs. Until it all hits the wall. Then it's shit-sandwich time.

I think I'll start another blog. A natural extension to this one, called Dictator of Australia. :-)

Actually I didn't know that. the lines have been stuck in my head since I was 14 or so and seemed appropriate to now. I was too lazy to look it up. I guess we studied it at school. But I have zero recollection of that being the name of the poem.

kyte, glad to have been of some service. I find Google just effing amazing. It find shit as well as gems, but you don't have to go to the library to search, and in fact it can find things no library can. Its usefulness never ceases to astound me. then again, I *am* an Old Fart...
