Rant

We get the society we deserve.

Although we are often outspoken and vociferous in our indignation over the daily abuses we incur at the hands of government and various other authorities, nevertheless, nothing ever seems to change in that regard.  We go on complaining and they go on doing what they do.  Society is so well regulated, we go to our j-o-b’s, every week, put in our obligatory five days/40 hours or (usually) more, then take our time-out on the weekend to recharge for the next round of drudgery.

No one seems very energetic in attempting to change the status quo, preferring to take whatever compensation that they can from it and leave it at that.  The mismanagement of government by our supposed public servants gains momentum, each day.

Where am I going with this?  Currently, there are a couple of high-profile scandals going on in this country.  The Rob Ford fiasco in Toronto and the Senate debacle, both involving prominent politicians, even the Prime Minister, himself.  Even local judges are not immune to being naughty!  The immense resources tied up in these two circus acts can only be deemed as obscene, given the countless other concerns afflicting our society.  There has to be a great amount of effort going into not believing that all of this is just too coincidental.

While it’s pretty much accepted by most that society is an oligarchy ruled over by the rich and influential, there are still those that prefer to believe that everything is just the way it should be and that our leaders are competent and have our best interest in mind.  On this, the 50th anniversary of the shooting of President John F. Kennedy, himself an ardent believer in the globalist conspiracy, what has really changed in that time, regarding the way that countries are governed and managed?  What has really changed about the way people think and prioritize?

This weekend, there is a huge championship football game about to be played.  For weeks, now, the constant bombardment of media hype and local hysteria exhibited over a ball game has been disconcerting to witness.  People go nuts over what this writer deems the ‘national religion’… the preoccupation with and worship of games, even to the detriment of social interaction outside of the event, itself.  Entertainment and amusements have become the focus of our over-regulated society.  The things that used to matter, like managing our leadership and our family units, are second and third fiddle to amusing ourselves.

Does anyone notice the downturn in overall intelligence in our society?  How many can actually read and write properly, find their position on a map, articulate a sentence properly, without phrasing a statement like a question and/or inserting “like” or “so” in it, a dozen or so times, so that it makes up approximately 75 percent of the subject content.  Years ago, I mentioned this fact to a younger member of society… who promptly informed me that I needed to get a life.  Perhaps it is he that should examine his own life and wonder if he’s been short-changed in some way.  It’s also quite fashionable to insert “fuck” into this and that and everything, adding just a little more than emphasis to our communications.  Perhaps it’s the onset of literary Alzheimer’s and no one realizes it.

The reality is that society is not getting better.  If technology is your thing, perhaps there are advances, but, at what cost?  What advantage is there to having great medicinal cures if you’re going to eat and work yourself to death?  Fast cars, when your I.Q. is dropping due to to Outcome Based Education and you’re not smart enough to realize that there is more than one throttle position than on the floor?  Advances in media that allow you to see every failing of the Hollywood crowd, those that the young so worship and idolize?

Kennedy recognized that there are forces dedicated to ruining society, and those forces, in the end, got to him.  They continue to eat away at our social strata.  They are the Illuminati and they are the secondary threat to our continued prosperity and well-being.  The number one threat is our own apathy.

Remember What?

Tomorrow is Remembrance Day in Canada.  Everyone is called upon to remember the sacrifice of those that fought in the First and Second World Wars and Korea.  It also calls respect toward those that have fought in the latest skirmishes in Afghanistan and Iraq, etc.  Vietnam veterans, apparently, can go fuck themselves.  Their contribution wasn’t government sanctioned.  Funny, too, as that war was no less elitist-contrived and/or sponsored than the others.

Perhaps, though, we are not so much remembering the sacrifice as we are worshiping the act of war?  “Never again!”, was the mantra the first veterans embraced as they marched off to the meat grinder.  Well, war is still with us… and will continue to be with us as long as rich fucks can make a buck off of it and there is an ample supply of suckers willing to march off and die or be maimed for them.  We aren’t allowed to forget about war as it it is glamorized every year on Remembrance Day.

The ignorance of the first ones cannot be carried over to latter generations, not while the utter blatancy of greed on the part of nations and governments shines forth in the culmination of conflict.  The fact that false flags are routinely employed to justify illegal and immoral incursions into sovereign countries, cannot be ignored by ‘patriots’ whom must be accountable for what they do while employed as elitist enforcers.  Remembrance Day is simply a means of holding onto something that should be discarded.  War is something that should be reserved for any invasions upon our sovereignty and upon our soil.  That is not likely to happen, given our geographical and technological situation.

Nowadays, war is too easily justified.  Those that question it’s use are quickly vilified as “unpatriotic” and viewed as “communists” and/or scum.  Hypocritically, out of the other side of their mouths, these same accusers claim to loathe and condemn war.  Actions always speak louder than words, and their actions tell it all.

A former soldier, myself, I see nothing wrong with remembering those fallen.  But, when those that have never served or did serve and yet pass judgment upon those whose freedom of thought was bought by those fallen, the question arises… is there any point to Remembrance Day when those ‘remembering’ forget what it’s really supposed to be all about?
