Individual Existential Reality
One’s labors through life pile up like melted snow. So much effort expended but in the end nothing tangible to show for it. One might be allowed the status of a failure for the greater part of their existence in any case but not a quitter. The pattern of present tense society demands that “we” are destined to one day be unhitched from our harness and sent to the ‘glue factory’ of geriatric medicine. Stripped by the government enforcement of institutional poverty, all that we have amassed will be discarded and past onward. The best parts of our work being no doubt ignored and discarded. The fact of one’s children being the only asset remaining in that our memory lives on through them alone. Despite all the Politically Correct independence, men what to be somebody of worth and women just want someone for them to be with. And that seems the ironic lesson that life poses direct from the tongue of an ancient Sphinx, ‘4’, ‘2’, ‘3’. One will, at best, come to truly know themselves for better or worse in the final hours of existence and if they are very fortunate find peace.

The model citizen for the coming utopian society will be that of a gullible child who is driven simply by emotion to satisfy its betters. Enrolled in a preplanned existence that is supervised and monitored from test tube to final recycling. Cooperation will be tolerated as long as it serves the community consensus of the central authority. Illusion of free will and contentment rule the day and no counterproductive thought is tolerated lest it contaminate others. Everything will run smoothly if it benefits the state but will turn lethal if it does not. Spontaneity and genius of any kind will be seen as a potential threat to the body politic. Group think will be encouraged by the commonality of trivial pursuits. Preplanned patterns of acceptable behavior will be freely distributed to all. The end of existence will be sudden and unexpected briefly fraught with animal terror before the life force is efficiently terminated.
