The Big Wobble: "Our vain attempt at global progress which has, in all intents and purposes destroyed the very place we live in?"

 This is Gary from the Big Wobble, who posts on extreme weather events and the like.  I might choose different language but there is something in what he has to say.

To really understand 

something is to be liberated 

from it. 

Yet, how can we liberate ourselves from our vain attempt at global progress which has, in all intents and purposes destroyed the very place we live in?

the Big Wobble,

30 October, 2020

I read somewhere, to really understand something is to be liberated from it. Yet, how can we liberate ourselves from our vain attempt at global progress which has, in all intents and purposes destroyed the very place we live in? Our world is collapsing, an implosion on a scale unimaginable.

And our environment is collapsing just as severely as our society. Our resources are dwindling at an alarming rate. Billions of animals have been lost this year to wildfires, drought, heat, cold, floods, disease, neglect, over-farming and natural disasters. Many millions of birds are dying around the world due to lack of food, lack of fish and insects.

Crops are failing on a Biblical scale across the world from the same reasons above. We are beginning to see many areas of the world becoming impossible to live in, areas which for years have been heavily populated and teeming with life and vegetation, but, are now, for certain parts of the year at least "unlivable," mainly due to extreme weather events.

To make matters worse the Coronavirus has hit the world hard, however, somehow, it hit the West even harder. The virus has birthed a new pandemic which has already taken root and is quickly spreading its tentacles around the world. This new pandemic did not start in China, this pandemic started in the West, in America of all places. The new pandemic is called civil disorder and will hit us all much harder than covid in the months to come.

Dark forces are at work and infecting people with hate on an unprecedented level. Violence, hatred and ugliness are spewing forth from people who have been dumbed down for years, a silent pent up anger has been boiling up inside people and Covid-19 has brought that anger to the surface. We are not fighting flesh and blood but evil in high places.

Water and food insecurity will hit next as millions of jobs are lost and the hard-working people of our society, the honest people find themselves homeless and out on the streets. the victims of democracy and plutocracy, while our banking system fat and bloated from an 8.5 trillion dollar bailout in 2008 paid by the very people who they are now refusing to help. Democracy for the poor. Socialism for the rich. 

While there should be enough for everyone, the obese are being fattened up by the undernourished. For the few, plundering the poor has become a way of life.

Frederic Bastiat wrote; 

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”  

This is what has happened here in the West. The rich and the poor have become different species.

However, just as the invention of the printing machine in 144o took away knowledge from the few and gave it to the many, so is the internet educating billions into learning what we are being told by our leaders is really what we should be opposing and so, this is where we find our world in 2020.

The riots prove urban unrest is a class war and a race conflict and is being politicized by the contenders of the upcoming election. The insanity on the streets is like nothing before, the inequality on the streets is insane.

Billionaires and millionaires populate cities where poor uneducated people roam the streets in abject poverty, homeless, shoeless and toothless, their only interest in life is to find their next high. An obesity pandemic has hit the dumbed-down poverty-ridden lower class, blissfully unaware their lifestyle is an early death certificate. You can hear their depressing view of life with no hope or improvement when they are interviewed on TV.

The fat and greedy have plundered everything and now the people are saying enough is enough. The internet is teaching the poor, teaching radicals, militants, anarchists, the terrorists and rebels alike. 

We have arrived in a strange world where businesses are closed but open to looters: We punish the cops but not the anarchists: We are not allowed to visit our dying elderly, who are left alone in nursing homes but we are allowed to fly on a crowded jet. We can't go to a ball game but we can go to a political rally.

An uprising is here and will explode after the American election, an explosion which will reverberate around the world like a massive earthquake as we the people enter a brave new world.
