Not to put too fine a point on it, or sound overly pessimistic, but I believe we are both economically and ecologically SCREWED!!! But perhaps worst of all: few, if any of us, seem to really give a crap, few, if any of us, want to admit we might be on a sinking ship.

The mindless media machine has no interest in helping us overcome our mass-denial. Its only real interest is self-interest, its only obsession: the manipulation of imaginary numbers, and its only job: to continually misinform the masses via “fair and balanced” infotainment.

Our government, having been sold to the highest bidder long long ago, is impotent to any pleas for change, for its only interest is also self-interest, its only obsession: the manipulation of imaginary numbers, and its only job: to pillage the social coffers as quickly as they possibly can.

Our tremendous ability to be short-sighted, combined with the diseased attitude of the “virtue of selfishness” is quickly sealing our fate, and few of us show any real signs of honest frustration or willingness to fight for any alternative.

While any attempt at prognostication will always be fuzzy at best, in my mind, our children’s future is looking bleak at best.

Will our unhealthy love of money and infotainment and the excessive Greed and Denial it promotes ever be overcome? Our children’s children are probably hoping it will be. I know my fingers crossed!
