What to do if the gun that you are shooting runs out of bullets? Or in case you haven’t noticed the phrase, “I feel as if I am being slowly starved to death!” Plenty of unacknowledged historical precedent around the world for that. Not only of food but of finding possibility in the future. There seems to be no room for the dreams of the aged in a world that can barely support the aspirations of the young. Many quietly ask themselves, “Does that mean that I am to be put out in a deserted part of the forest as a meal for wolves?” Metaphorically speaking, or maybe much more viscerally so, I believe that most of us have. The material obsessed corporate world doesn’t cotton to media designated losers or high waged non-producers. It daily writes a script that gets to call the tune as to what is fundamentally reasonable and what is lightheaded folly. Most days the logic of the two are purposefully reversed with the express purpose to confuse and create uncertainty. Better the consumer experience controlled uncertainty about the same old products re-dressed in thinly veiled colors than the other way around where real competition changes their business plan.
There is a certain amount of safety in numbers. If you are part of a tight knit group one increases their odds of experiencing a lesser degree of disruption. That is, unless you make it your business to let it into your life. Check out those rusty junkyard boom boxes with temporary plates that circle those doubtful paradises of urban ghettos as they stutter blame and discontent upon the mainstream of society. No doubt because the handouts afforded by ‘Big Fat Momma Welfare’ have been a bit more meager that usual. The alternate experience is of course anything considered comedy or drama on networked TV where the guy who still is expected to bring home the bacon each night becomes both boob and butt. His life experienced by howling primitive rituals of envious others who can only find their own personal solace in denigrating his at ever opportunity times two. The fact that the latest television monitors sold to “John and Mary Q Public” watch you as much or more than you watch them speaks volumes.
Part of the experience of life’s conundrum of existence is finding a certain degree of passion within the experiencing of it. A goal or a purpose, however trivial can act as the motivation for a life plan. The problem comes when the plan is no longer valid or no longer holds any attraction to the one that devised it. In a land where triviality has replaced the focus once afforded to common sense the devil is in the suspension of detail. Conveniently transparent soundbyte packaged scapegoats come and go every few days and the continual task of picking up the pieces of ceiling strewn about the room from the sky falling in on those occasions leaves one with a brain fraught by mental rubble. Clear thinking becomes impossible when daily existence is mired down in empty headed minutia of sports and who is wearing what and fucking who. The projected mirror of consumer identities also known as the movies is no longer designed to fit the expansive proportions of what was once considered ‘normal’ expectations for a comfortable life. Like a bad suit of clothes marketed at a Costco or Target contemporary existence is currently designed for someone of perfect Asian dimensions but not for the traditionally bilious proportions of older Europeans.
One might notice that the ultimate goal of those leaving youth from adolescence is to get all inked up sporting a rock hard six-pack. A perfect analogy for a future lifetime of continual diminished expectations and life under corporate custodians that consider all others as marketable ‘human resources.’ The state created revolution of the Internet providing the ultimate Judas goat for societies foolish enough to post all their resources upon it’s butcher block platform. Life expectancy of the human mind will continue to plummet towards single digits as the modern urban primitive movement for nose rings takes virtual hold. The slippery hard rock of morals will erode to dust that will blow back and forth solely governed on self-interest in a manner that continues to appease the powers that be. If your offspring are lucky they may be accorded the occasional honor of prize bull or calf held at the annual culling of the herd. Perhaps at this point those Ranids known as our reader might notice that their limbs and torso are beginning to boil over a bit. That is because the fingers controlling the burners below the pot might be getting a bit more anxious for their nightly portion of cuisses de grenouilles!
The disparity of mindset that coms with acceptance as taught by public educations that indemnifies both master and slave in a compact constructed by and favoring the monied powers that work tirelessly to maintain their control. Who are these people? You never here about them by name in the present tense but the antics of their ancestors are plain enough. Plumb the depths of history behind every significant law and you will find their agents as handmaidens. Connect the dots between these actions and the assumptions that they create and you will have a pretty good idea of where they reside. When you can finally summon them by name and hold them to account for their interference then perhaps, the course of events might indeed change for the better.
But continue to accept the fallacies of their initiatives put forth by supporting their ploys and this slavery will continue. There is no doubt that education is the key but not in the mode of institutional warehousing of formative minds to cater to some vague public whim for ascribing home turf as a safety net. There is no safety from this web of global tyranny until the spinners of these webs of legal deceit are exposed and defanged. Men can always develop new associations of commerce when the old restrictions are dropped the playing ground leveled. If honest value once again becomes the cornerstone of trade in support of cooperation and not competition there may indeed be hope. No one should be forced to support the fiction of a ‘common good’. Patriotism as long ago quoted remains the ‘refuge of scoundrels’.Those who desire an existence far away and apart should be invited to fail on their own terms and not beg charity by force of arms from any governmental power. Without the full protection of the privacy of all, the lawful constituents of the land, these carnivorous black beetles treading silently under our floorboards shall continue to ravage and pillage human existence. It is essentially a bug problem after all. The collective ‘we’ can continue to try to endure it, or roll up their sleeves and do what it takes to eliminate it.
“Gun Violence!”, scream the daily headlines in Chicago but nary a whisper of, “no talking to the police”, is the real wind in the sails of so many continued incidents of shootings. We have marches and photo opportunities before hungry news cameras looking for stories to divert attention from the ever worsening unattended state of a moribund national economy. The fact that shootings in the city as a rule are far below what they were in decades past along with the fact that the new mayor as part of the Federal ruling structure is continuing to cut budgets for crime prevention are supposed to be overlooked. And perhaps, given the rising incidents of unwarranted lethal violence inflicted by the police against all strata’s of society, it may indeed be understandable that those at street level will not aid the enforcement of the law at large through the jeopardy of their own safety, however immoral that stance may be.
Yet it is a thousand times more unjust to continue policies that deemphasize the presence and will of the majority in favor of an artificially engendered cult of official victimhood. Considering that in the last ten years the focus of those in the highest offices of power have sought to install and favor the rapid growth of government organs that seek to wrench this nation from its moral foundations for the sake of an elitist global utopia favoring centralized rule by the unelected. Like rainwater through a roof that has rotted away, these currents stream down ceaselessly corroding and dissolving what once seemed like normal life into a perpetual sense of instability and uncertainty conducted by the whim of the daily agenda of an unseen polit-bureau. The ‘guns’ don’t seem to be a problem when they are funneled into a foreign region for political aggrandizement in support of a ‘national interest’ but they become a well-publicized anathema through events that contain more theatrical artifice as opposed to investigative fact.
The most overlooked fact of the issue is that a ‘gun’ in any of its many manifestations needs a finger upon the trigger and an agenda behind it that points it toward a particular target. The real issue that remains purposefully unspoken it just who has the most guns and who they intend to point them at! Considering that the anomaly of that loathsome entity of DHS which seems established mainly to humiliate and intimidate the general citizenry while arming up with enough weaponry and ammunition to domestically massacre every citizen and illegal resident within the national borders six times over. The whole situation becomes a play of whispers within the general population versus those put forth by the rule of federal government as to what the next staged event will be in terms of conflict that will provide a ‘shock doctrine’ remedy to benefit the destruction of the nation as a whole. The daily faire of a virulent level of formulaic social patterning though the incessantly ocular perspective of the popular media competitively showcasing ‘black’ over ‘white’ suggesting a manufactured schism leading to what appears to be a desire for a violent race based conflict.
What occurs in the various ‘ghettos’ of America, ‘black’ urban or ‘white’ suburban, is mischief plain and simple. It seems time to call out these agent provocateurs and retake the public forums in order to confront them publicly with their crimes. The time is long past for continued whispers but rather a determined call for taking the initiative by proactive moral action.
