I can’t really comment in any informed way on societies in the East, except to point to the Chinese slave workers who produce mountains of plastic crap for Western nations to use and then dump in the ground and oceans; the Middle East’s role as a bombing target, ‘terrorist’ recruiting ground and civil war factory for Western warmongers, and South East Asia and Africa as a block of new ‘nations’ born out of the ‘white man’s burden’ to civilize their people via brutal colonization and then grant them ‘independence’ in the form of never-ending debt to Western banks.
In the West on the other hand, where I live, I can say with confidence that our modern society, its political and social conventions, customs and morality, has past it’s expiry date and is well and truly moribund. If I were a political or social cartoonist, the image would be a giant rotting corpse plastered in thick make up and doused in cheap perfume with a greedy banker’s hand up its ass making it move and talk to fool the public into thinking that they actually has a future worth living in.
Leading the cast in this tragicomedy (heavy on the tragi) we find our psychopathic leaders and their media whores trying extra hard to convince us that everything is just fine. But that smell, that stench of lies and the screaming contradiction between what they say and what we can all see (if we look) is making it increasingly hard to believe them, and even our own wishful thinking.
the pedophilia that has long existed in secret in ‘high places’ has, in recent years, come out of the closet in the form of a host of beloved British ‘house-hold names’ dragged into court on charges that they abused thousands of children in TV studio dressing rooms, hospitals and their homes, over the last several decades. In response to this revelation, the British media and British ‘experts’ have sought to either protect the offenders, or convince the public that they should accept pedophilia as a ‘normal sexual orientation’.
The UK is the most surveilled state in the world, boasting one CCTV camera for every 11 citizens. CC TV cameras on Britain’s roads capture 26 million images of civilians in their cars every day. There are only 34.5 million vehicles licensed for use on British roads. George Orwell had no idea.
A majority of British and American children don’t play outside, they ‘play’ inside by hooking their brains up to (often) violent video games. This particular ‘leisure’ activity may not necessarily turn them into violent children and adults, but it certainly does effect their brains, hindering the development of empathy and leaving them ‘morally immature‘, just like society at large. US and British courts have repeatedly struck down attempts to restrict children’s access to violent video games, and yet, at Heathrow airport for example, ‘security’ guards will confiscate tiny plastic guns from the hand of a child’s plastic (made in China) toy.
In France, a popular comedian with a penchant for pointing out the corruption and vested interests and divided loyalties of politicians has been flagrantly censored by the politicians themselves. The censor in chief, French Interior Minister, Manuel Valls, is a rabid defender of ‘Zionist’ ideals. ‘Zionist ideals’, when stripped bare, are little more than the insatiable greed and blood lust of psychopaths.
In the US , with almost 50 million people on food stamps and poverty and unemployment at all-time highs, states have passed laws criminalizing the homeless with Florida passing a law that forbids homeless people from covering themselves with a blanket. To solve the awkward food stamp problem in the ‘land of opportunity’, the US elite decided to cut food stamps to the tune of $5 billion late last year. Meanwhile, a US court has declared that rich people who kill poor people are not guilty of murder but are themselves the ‘victims’ of their own wealth and privilege that caused them to believe that the law does not apply to them, and therefore, the judge declared, the law does not apply to them. It shouldn’t be too hard to see how that precedent can be used by ‘elite’ criminals of all stripes.
33% of Americans have diabetes or prediabetes. In the UK the figure is 17%. Diabetes is directly linked to the typical Western diet that is high in carbs and sugar. Both diabetes and sugar (carbs) may be linked to cancer. The number of cancer sufferers around the world is predicted to increase by 70% over the next 20 years. Despite these facts, and the obvious conclusions that can be drawn from them, Western governments continue to kowtow to big business interests and promote a high carb (sugar) diet for everyone.
70 million Americans are on mind-altering prescription drugs. I can’t blame them. Although it’s not helping anyone, except the big pharma corporations and their buddies in government.
Israel continues its 60 year experiment in running the world’s biggest concentration camp in Palestine and gets away with it by constantly reminding everyone that Jewish suffering in the concentration camps trumps all other suffering, even though, by the numbers, it doesn’t. The Zionist state keeps European and American politicians on song via blackmail (see pedophilia above) and bribery, making sure that everyone agrees that the dominance of the “shitty little state” is necessary to ‘safe-guard ‘freedom and democracy’ around the world. “Never again” means ‘never again unless the Israelis and the psychos in Western governments are doing it’, in which case, fire away. Honestly, how are they meant to get the people to consent to them committing acts of genocide unless they shove a previous act of genocide in the people’s collective face and conscience?
The US government and CIA have ushered in a brave new world where military drones indiscriminately murder innocent people in “far off lands” while 30,000 ‘civilian’ versions of these grim reapers introduced back home will not be used to target and kill the American people, only to spy on them, at least for now, they say. Sure. Bu do check out this cool new psycho toy, coming to a patch of sky near you…soon.
US police forces have killed 5,000 American civilians since 2001, a result of the militarization of the US police forces that was justified by the September 11th attacks, when the US government murdered 3,000 American citizens to justify the expansion of empire, the introduction of killer drones, and the militarization of the police forces to keep people back home down, or dead.
‘Al-Qaeda’ is a name given to the CIA’s cadre of psychopathic Islamic thugs. They are used around the world by the CIA to carry out ‘terrorist’ attacks against civilian targets, which are in turn used to put pressure on foreign governments to either resign, or comply with US government rules pertaining to US corporations ‘rights’ to the natural resources of foreign nations. It’s a play taken straight out of the mafia protection racket rule book adjusted for international ‘diplomacy’: “we’ll keep
our the ‘Islamic terrorists’ off your back if you pay us protection money in the form of access to your nation’s resources and allow us to install a military base in your country to protect our resources you from our the Islamic terrorists.” See?
If you try, even just a little, I’m sure you can come up with many more examples of just how high on the pathologically screwed up scale our Western ‘civilization’ has reached. But there’s more to this situation than just a society on the brink of internal collapse. While we’ve been busy allowing psychopaths in power to royally bollix up our ‘way of life’, the environment has been busy mirroring back to us just how screwed up we are by acting all ‘screwy’ itself (that’s a technical term by the way).
‘Climate change’ is upon us, but that term doesn’t do justice to the level of chaos that has been reigning in our biosphere over the last 10 years or so. Volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes (in places where tornadoes never were) sinkholes, animal die-offs, flooding, snows storms of epic proportions, fireballs and meteorites raining down on our heads (literally), have all increased dramatically in intensity and frequency in recent years. To compound the problem, crop yields have fallen dramatically over the past few years as a result of the ‘weird weather’ and food shortages are already being discussed around the champagne cooler at the U.N.
Unfortunately, the potential that these shocking events hold for normal human beings to sit up and take notice has been seriously suppressed by the interference of the usual psycho suspects who have waged a determined campaign to blame climate chaos, and the threat it poses, on humans themselves. Ironically enough, blaming human beings for our biosphere developing a personality disorder isn’t far off the mark, but the source of the problem has nothing to do with our CO2 emissions.
The ponerizing effect of psychopaths in power has resulted in nobel prizes being offered to lying, psychopathic nutbags like Al Gore for his pathological enthusiasm in the promotion of the “global warming” scam that serves to not only prevent people from understanding the true nature of ‘climate change’ (even on the GW level it’s cooling, not warming), but the true cause of it.
As above, so below (or vice versa) and as psychopathic ways of thinking and acting take hold of, and metastasize throughout a formerly normal human society and the ‘death throes’ ensue, our planet, of which we as a species are a part, reacts in a similarly dramatic way. It’s hard to say which comes first though, and perhaps it is more true to say that the relationship between the human race and the planet (or the universe at large) takes the form of a feedback loop. As chaos increases in human society, so chaos is provoked in the environment, which precipitates more chaos is human society…and on ‘down’ it goes.
The fact of the matter seems to be that, as an experiment in modern human civilization under the stewardship of psychopaths, our global society has gone as far as is possible and achieved the expected results: complete collapse looms and a cleaning of the slate is to follow.
I hope everyone enjoyed (and maybe even learned from) the experience.
p.s. Ya know things are pretty bad when you check “causes of societal collapse” on Wikipedia and it reads like today’s run down of breaking news.
“Common factors that may contribute to societal collapse are economic, environmental, social and cultural, but they manifest combined effects like a whole system out of balance. In some cases a natural disaster (e.g. tsunami, earthquake, massive fire or climate change) may seem to be an immediate cause. Other factors such as a Malthusian catastrophe, overpopulation or resource depletion might be the proximate cause of collapse. Significant inequity may combine with lack of loyalty to a central power structure and result in an oppressed lower class rising up and taking power from a smaller wealthy elite.”
