Here comes the shitstorm that our times will be known for.
The fearful worshippers of order will try by any means at their disposal to enforce a singular system of control on this planet. Here, for example, we find the kony meme washed almost clear of the uncontrollable ejaculations of its previous patron. False dichotomy is the shop term for that particular scam. "If war is terrible, then its opposite must be great, right? ...It's for the kids, and... and LOOK! Kittens! ... britney nude xxx superbowl" Will this work for more than a week? I don't know. The people they have raised to respond to this, through a lifetime of oprahaic mush from the teleteat, have frightfully short attention spans. By design they are not meant to be able to think for themselves and will not be able to respond in an intelligible manner to the challenges of "their" logic which is bound to ensue. Religions were able to skate by on "because god", but an immunity to that is now well represented among the people. Similarly, alinsky tactics have been ridden hollow just to ensure another year of bonuses for monsanto and co.
Oh, what a dilemma! To appear grassroots peddling peace, while being hosted by the same circus that brought you the same justifications for war last week. Perhaps it should have popped directly from the gangnam man's crotch. Is it too early for the nymph parade, or has that carrot too been exhausted so that monsanto could see 2014? I can see it already: "Study finds chicks see service to the world order as "highly attractive" quality in bro's." And we thought evolution held for us no more predators to overcome.
How many will endure as people, and how many will become part of a bureaucratic colony organism to lend a false sense of security to the terrified? Unknown. By this ratio the success of the people of this time will be known.
Soon there will be nothing more to be done for those that consider the loudest noise to be synonymous with fact. To be tied to their fate would be to be tied at the hip to a lemming.
It may seem surprising that feminism was created by rich old men, but that appears to be the case. As if the -ism wasn't a blatant enough clue, the goal is the demonisation of men in specific, but generally the demonisation of anything exceptional from the gray goo of sameness that the industry of political correctness is meant to enact on this planet.
The reason for this is relatively simple. Sweatshops aren't generally known to be full of men. Women, yes. Children, yes. But not men, unless you want to install suicide nets around your sweatshops, and that's just bad for PR. This is why women and children (and rhinos) have become first class citizens in the twisted mainstream culture of earth. If all human life is turned into either male apologist pussies, or women desperately trying to untie the Gordian knot of broken logic spouted from the mainstream media, then these rich old men will be free to complete the enslavement of humanity with impunity.
The media and the states suspiciously all together decided that it was illegal to give children a whack or two when they needed it, and surprise surprise, years later they throw up their hands in innocence, wondering why some young people today tend to generally lack discipline, will or any semblance of moral values.
No surprise that the troubles of today's youth dovetail nicely with the recent blitz of terror propaganda in the media concerning rape and rhino poaching. The message behind all this?: "Humanity has lost the ability to control itself, down to the man. Parents are failures (we don't know why), you're probably going to get raped (men are dangerous) and the Chinese are screwing up all the Rhinos (because they're limp). Wouldn't it be nice if an authority took all these problems off our hands?" No surprise that the largely unspoken, pre-fabricated solution to all this is always more control, centralised. That really should be a clue as to who will benefit.
The usual shills are almost in WW3 overdrive now, in the mainstream media and on social networking sites, trying to convince humanity that we're all actually a bunch of well-meaning idiots, unable to deal with simple logic because it wasn't covered in our propaganda. They go largely unchallenged because most people just can't be arsed to point out the obvious.
We have a saying in my country: You're busy scratching the lion's arse with a twig. Soon the new world order initiative will kick off in full, and the rich old men might accomplish something quite different than what they set out to do. But I think most people will simply turn off their teevees, and maybe never turn them on again.
To say that our society is bifurcating is an oversimplification, but it seems clear that two distinct paths will dominate. First we have "our" dying culture. To name it would be to invite lobbyists to subvert yet another idea in favour of the status quo, but I expect we all have a relatively clear sense of what its constituent parts are: Materialism, wilful ignorance, lack of empathy, all symptoms of unchecked fear. It's been inevitable since fear was a thing, but its current form started taking recognisable shape when mass-produced media made it possible for people with money to speak louder than anyone else. Since then it's been maturing at a growing pace, and right now this culture is discovering ways for itself and its participants to die of their own stupidity.
We're past the point where it was getting surreal. Surreal levels of imbecility, broadcast en masse, is the new normal. This is all anyone could really expect from anything that could only flourish where cognitive dissonance is a requirement of participation.
Today we'll be focusing on the trends in gaming. If you weren't aware, games are the emerging art form of our times. Somewhere in the range of 90 to 99 percent of everything that's sold in this medium is utter shit. Never has this been more apparent than it is now. I now follow the medium strategically, no longer avidly; letting the news find me. Even from this level it is clearly apparent that the old guard—the money men—are begging to be put out of their misery. The newly-announced PS4 is such a good example that I just had to put in a few words about it. Here are some straight words on the matter from an unbiased source. In this case, unbiased means "not a conspiracy theorist".
Yes, sony have shot themselves in the foot. So painful was their action that it could be felt ahead of time. If some of the things I've heard about windows 8 are any indication, microsoft will guillotine both their own proverbial legs in response to their rival (though it's hard to imagine them making a bigger mess). How this happened, I will attribute to the visible results of the Paris Hilton Effect. To summarise: They are building on foundations that in no way can support the weight they wish to put on it. In this case, the weight is immense. As the second linked article from the Penny Arcade Report points out, sony has no idea what it seeks to accomplish (except profit). So they have turned to this second's buzzword: Social. While there are many eyes—and thus ad revenue—in the world of social, there is not much of anything that matters. Massively expensive viral campaigns come and go before they can make any impact more substantial than a few million "lol"s. It's the weakest of weak foundations, and sony's next gen console is the heaviest single thing I've yet seen placed on it. The crash has not yet happened, but it is already being felt.
The other way
Which leads us to the second path humans can take. Sentient beings have the ability to sense the future, and it's clear that emerging trends are nurturing this ability even in those that do not actively seek it. In truth, I suspect it's not so much an ability to see the future as it is an ability to see the present, along with a projection of consequences. The culture in which we have been immersed is toxic, and it's getting close enough to the end game that human mammals are starting to feel mortally threatened, and our sense of survival are bringing useful abilities to the fore. We live in interesting times. For many this will not be a curse, but an awakening.
Happy new b'ak'tun.
It's been feeling for a while now that we're splitting off from each other, and that feeling has just kept getting more powerful for me. If you look at the media, you could certainly be convinced for yourself. The muppets in america are clearly being driven to each other's throats, caught as always in utter terror. Turns out parenting interferes with pawing away hours at your cell phone, now we have to ban all the things so that the adult world can become a child-friendly version of itself to accommodate the worst examples of ourselves; pretending that the utterly exceptional is the norm. No doubt they're lobbying to get oprah and dr phil inserted as a suppository for every man, woman and child, because accepting their programming via the teevee has clearly done so much already. It doesn't satisfy much that I put in the words early.
A couple of years ago, I benefited from a borderline psychedelic experience thanks to some magic mushrooms that had mostly gone off by the time they reached me. I asked what was ahead for us, vis-a-vis the new b'ak'tun, and my subconscious answered in the form of the semi-vivid, symbolic vision that my mind appears to favour. It showed two spirals, or maybe two directions in the same one. The rotations on one keeps getting smaller, while the ones in the other direction keep growing outwards. It showed me that most of us were in the shrinking one, but that by now, most of us would have migrated out of there. The implication was that chasing the shrinking spiral was a result of acting in fear, and the further implication was that the shrinking would eventually mean for everyone on that path a kind of spiritual death, if not a physical one. I realised what that meant for me personally, and found it difficult to believe that I would in the interim give up my (fear-induced) habit of tracking and saving important world news, or trying to front-run the future via the reports of a "rickety time machine", but now that's already happened.
If you haven't noticed the spiral getting smaller, you haven't been paying proper attention. Most people have been pulling into themselves, trying to live in a fractal of things that were once tiny; getting all worked up and interested in things like coffee and food, then hiding there. Watch satellite teevee and you'll find prison and cop shows trying to convince you that big brother is everywhere and that not even a gram of weed could escape the "great eye". Switch the channel and you'll find people trying to convince you to spend hours a day preparing meals. Be only afraid of al CIA-da, the other channels beg: "Don't worry that the most terrified nation on earth murders their own citizens in false flag attacks for an excuse to secure other people's resources and your own: We got people whose job it is to worry about that, and they seem quite satisfied, sleeping on mattresses made of stolen oil money."
The propaganda is only going to get clearer and more self-defeating as time drags on. Satirists have been out of work for years now, their jobs taken away by people who thought they were being serious. A once (relatively) reputable south african news site spammed this into the headlines, like it wasn't an ad. I wonder what they think they will be left with once people spent all the energy they had left on getting worked up at summer, coffee, cat pictures, or the left-hind leg of big potato moths. Probably willing shells with which to make war on the rest of us.
I am not afraid.
