asteroid 1

“Asteroids threaten the planet”  

interesting stuff?

yay! for a free and informative press…?

seriously though, what are regular punters the likes of you and me meant to do with this kind of info?

are we to respond by digging underground holes and prepare like doomsday preppers?

I’m no genius, but if a significantly sized asteroid comes our way, digging holes and stocking survival food is definitely not going to help us at all – not even full asbestos body suits will help… not even crash helmets

global warming doesn’t bring asteroids our way

neither does police brutality, political corruption or even genocide

shit happens, so do asteroids

“we have a right to know!” we all shout … “yadda, yadda, yadda!” is the first response that comes to my mind

realistically speaking, what can we do? petition our governments?

even if they listened to us what could they do?  …and why should they?  most, if not all government leaders are so obsessively focused on building their own personal empire and securing their own immediate future they can’t even dredge up the least bit of motivation to give a damn

I don’t know, maybe these ‘press releases’ serve only to instill fear and panic into the electorate?

I’m not one who believes the editors and journalists are all fully controlled by some secret governing body that enforces it’s own agenda on the hapless masses

I don’t know too many, but I do know some journalists who are extremely intelligent and very high on the ethics/morality/integrity scale

but let’s face it, sensationalism sells and sensationalism = profit – for the publication as well as for the individual journalist

perhaps what I am really saying is that fundamentally greed dominates, and what gets published is not what is right, good, correct or constructive… what gets published is what brings in the bucks

common “punters?” – yes, punters indeed – that’s us, that’s what we are…gamblers, that’s what we do… we gamble

we place our speculative bets at the polling station every few years and most often our chosen horse never even finishes the race let alone wins it

but we bet again and again…  that’s what punters do… habitual? – addicted?… nevertheless, against all hope we remain hopefully hopeless

but it’s our civil right, our civil duty… really? …isn’t it the lame and dead horses we bet on who tell us this before each and every race lines up for the start?

we punters live in an age of enlightenment yet we believe them every time and put all our faith in them… every time

now I’m also not one who believes in an organised conspiracy somewhere out there

there may well be one, I’m not closed to this possibility, but the reason I’m not a conspiracy theorist is almost exclusively because I’m convinced we are too dumb-ass stupid to get it together (on both/all/any sides of this diabolical equation)

my take on it is that it’s all a situation of rampant, unbridled greed, more linked to a warped interpretation and a skewed outworking of the most basic of primary instincts – survival

…not the survival of our species as a whole, rather the survival of ourselves – as individuals or at best a cluster of individually and collectively insecure, clueless, desperate, narcissists who are blinded to the collateral devastation of our own selfish, greed driven vain actions

macrocosm-schmacrocosm, microcosm-schmicrocosm, it’s all the same… there are no degrees of stupid

this same rampant greed and lack of empathy resides in the press as well as the “Illuminati”, the corporate CEO’s, the bankers, the politicians, whoever …yes, and in you and me too

maybe a reason for this kind of published doomsday asteroid article is to increasingly scare us into little insular pods, – like frightened ostrich-people? …unable to respond constructively, vote intelligently, participate functionally?

thank God for the age of enlightenment? … really?

maybe all this “enlightenment” has totally blinded us?

bring on the age of wisdom and real intelligence I say…

but that might well take hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of years at the rate we’re going…

…and let’s face it, chances are we’ll get buggered by some big-ass asteroid before anyone of us even reaches first base

…in reality the people and expense details are effectively irrelevant, if it’s not the ANC it will be the DA or EFF, democrats, republicans, communists, socialists or any and every other party of obnoxious, narcissistic humans, as we all are merely despicable fools…
actually the joke is on us, the “electorate”…and we ourselves are the joke as we continue to willingly participate according to the manipulative, diabolical rules of this charade, which is worshipped by us and what we have called democracy… we should be ashamed, profoundly humbled, humiliated.
we are not a fallen species, we are deceased. .. it is only a matter of time…

Blind leading Blind

.

it’s nothing less than tragic to think that tomorrows leaders are following today’s leaders right now…

what was that about the blind leading the blind?

as radical as it may seem to the vast majority of us … perhaps for tomorrows leaders to shake off their own blindness it may well be greatly advantageous to start by stopping, go by staying, start questioning rather than obeying, learning by actively unlearning, programming by deprogramming and courageously walking untrodden paths… and perhaps even to not desire that others follow them at all?

outrageously also, perhaps to radically reinterpret the practical meanings of honour, respect, integrity, ethics, fairness, integrity, honesty, selflessness and dignity as these ideas might also be a most necessary initial step?  …  let’s face it,…  maybe only one in a million of all the leaders alive and active today display even a remote trace of any of these attributes

… and could it be that any righteous leader of tomorrow may well be categorized as anarchical, radical, rebellious and perhaps even profoundly irrelevant and dysfunctional … if judged by present standards?

instead of falling into a ditch along with those who illegitimately claim the high and lofty seats of power and influence in our world today – should we not be thinking of doing another form of ditching?

 

 

there’s a huge flightless feathery bird

that eats stones

and it looks like it hides its head in the sand

this is not the truth

but it is

known by scientists as the struthio camelus

but by signtists and the little swallowed pebbles

it is known as the multi-tickle arse-stretch
