Just Say NO!

Democracy is dead. It was killed by a mad army of corporate lobbyists and governmental lackeys, led by the Confederacy of Dunces, known as the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

Our will has been hijacked by our media-monopolizing overlords and we sit sedated and reaction-less in the face of even the most terrifying assault on our basic human rights.

We have sacrificed our ability for independent creative thinking for a Disney-fied monoculture of ravenous Consumerism. We have destroyed our ecosystem in the pursuit of unchecked Greed and Hubris. And we have lost our better senses in the constant cacophonous roarings of corporate advertising jingles.

However, our collective happiness can never be purchased. No amount of consumer goods will ever satisfy these manufactured desires we assume to have. The human spirit cannot be bought and sold.

Thankfully we will always have the opportunity to change this. Thankfully life is much more circular than it will ever be linear and no matter what the corporate will may be currently shouting at us, we can choose not to listen whenever the fancy strikes!

John Tamny Is A Moron.

I just got done reading one the most Moronic articles I’ve ever had the misfortune of coming across and it can be found be clicking here.

According to Forbes magazine’s Mr. John Tamny’s rather pathetic “logic” the single most glorious and apparently Infallible thing that humans have ever Created is our so-called “free-market’ economy! And that based on our economy’s Endless and ever-accurate Wisdom and Foresight, we can happily revel in the knowledge that our Market doesn’t believe that man can have negative effects on our environment and that global warming is a lie perpetrated by anti-capitalists! Why look toward acting more sustainably or ecologically aware, when the Market prefers our Oblivion, Arrogance, and blind Hubris?

Thank you Mr. John Tamny for being such an economic optimist! Until reading your “article” I was under the impression that our economics were less fundamental to our earthly existence than our environment, but thanks to your Bountiful Philosophical Insights, I no longer have to live under the oppressive attitude that our Earth is worth protecting from blind greed and short-sightedness!

Thank you Mr. John Tamny for setting me free! I can’t wait to find out the many ways we can profit off of rising acidic oceans, mass extinctions, dwindling fresh water supplies, raging wild-fires, social instability, and all the rest! We’ve already found plenty of ways to profit from sickness, death, and endless war, I can hardly wait to discover all the other ways we can enrich the few at the cost of the many!

You truly are an Intellectual Giant!

May your own wallet always be bulging and you environment always be of little, if any, concern.

 

Face of the Devil

I have seen the face of the Devil, and he works in advertising.

Tracking every single move we make via our “smart”-phoned/tableted, plugged-in existence, then designing and displaying ads specifically targeting every interest it presumes we have, the Devil is everywhere at once!

He uses our psychology against us. Researches ever way to titillate our senses, and teaches us to throw money at anything we desire.

The media and so-called “news” outlets, the devils fame-seeking, soulless minions in his never-ending quest for ever More, help foster images of excess and the need to always purchase our happiness and social-status, hopefully the latest, shiniest, most technologically advanced gadget on the market, at some imaginarily perceived bargain price.

We are told that not only does this desire for ever more “stuff” have to be met, it must continually be met at ever increasing numbers, for ever and ever, Amen.

I am here to unequivocally state: this cannot stand.

This attitude is not only extremely Destructive both environmentally and socially, it is morally reprehensible as well. But the most compelling argument for us ceasing these overly-consumptive ideals can be summed up with one word: Unsustainable.

It would take many more than the One Earth we have for everyone on this Earth to live as Ignorantly Over-Consumptive as we Americans.

Mother Nature is begging for Change, not the imaginary political illusion our politicians wield about only during election or re-election cycles, but real honest-to-God Changes in how we organize ourselves socially, in how we define our Actuality, and in how we judge Right from Wrong and Good from Bad.

Thankfully, we still have time, but unfortunately, our time is quickly running short.
