I was eating some bacon and eggs when suddenly a big bird flew smack dab into the window at El Cap. I see all things as kind of revelatory now, and no longer believe in accidental events. This bird's mistake was no mere accident. In some cultures, it would be taken as sign of doom; in others it signifies great change.
I have been tripping on Greek Mythology for quite a bit and learned that what the word myth means is an event (or events) that is out of the ordinary. The word profane means the opposite. Profane happenings are the things that wear the ruts in the roads we travel. Mythical happenings should fill us with some wonder and cause us to shake our heads. Big myths should cause us to reevaluate our existential understanding of the world and the way we look at things.
It don't take a fucking genius to look around us and understand there is some big mythological shit going on. Each extraordinary event we went through the past seven months was big enough on its own to make us doubt our grip on sanity. For example, the CNN coverage of a riot with the words 'Mostly Peaceful' below the image of a burning city. I mean as if the rioting, the burning, and the looting wasn't the craziest shit. The fact a major news outlet saw fit to post those words beneath the flames took us right out of the profane world and forced us all into an Orwellian scenario.
And the mythic elements of past seven months have yet to subside. AOC talking about creating enemy lists, and the media mentioning reeducation camps is downright scary. It rips the narrative away from George Orwell and blends it into something that Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn might have written. It becomes kind of plain that something seriously fucked up is afoot here. Yet, most of the voting populace walks around unaware of all these parallels, you know somewhat like how birds have no reference point to think about glass windows, that is until they run into one.
There are a whole lot of clues that most people choose not to see. The missing middle of the American body politic should have been a major red flag. The Pravda like media's incessant refusal to make anyone on the Left look bad another.
I mean for God's sake, you have to be pretty bad to ignore the Dickensian character flaws in people like Pelosi, Nadler, and Schiff. I know that Socialists believe that anything goes when it comes to reaching their goal, but you have to be a pretty empty sack of nothing yourself to ignore their characters are so obviously etched into their outward actions and appearances. It's like Oscar Wilde's novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. Hell, Dickens, or even Dostoevsky, couldn't have drawn them any finer.
I once appeared in an elementary school production of The King Who Wore No Clothes. That experience reminds me of the voting public's perception of Biden. This man dropped out of the '88 election partially because he plagiarized a speech by British MP Neil Kinnock, a speech that contained some of Kinnock's personal family information. Biden not only stole the speech; he left the personal information in the speech! Dropping out of the race, he said, "I did not intentionally move to mislead anybody. And I didn't." He also said his actions in withdrawing were motivated by "the exaggerated shadows" of his past mistakes. In other words, it was other people's fault that he had lied.
He reveals so much of his character in this story that to me, it is unbelievable that any halfway intelligent person would ever vote for him. Then add in the fact that everybody to the left of him hates the fact that he was the Democratic candidate and can't wait till he's gone. Top it off with the fact that mainstream media could never find anything negative to say about him even though his faults stood out like lipstick on a pig. That takes the story from Solzhenitsyn and hands it over to Joseph Goebbels to add the finishing touches.
Boiled down, it means the Americans who took part in this insanity are just like the bird hitting the window. Yet, it should not have to be my problem if you are blinded to the obvious signs of what is really going on.
The way I see it is if you choose to fly head down into fucking glass windows, it should only be your problem for not being aware enough to notice that the Universe is jumping up and down trying to warn you to pay more attention to what is really happening.
The problem is that the outcome you created is probably going to hurt us all.
