That is what our society is, a compilation of lazy, indolent morons that can’t garner the ambition to form a cogent thought, anymore. Instead, we allow others, many with ulterior motives and agendas, to educate us. We have been so conditioned to listening the the ‘experts’ we no longer trust our God-given intuition preferring to let media and government dictate to us what we should believe and do.
Just in my time, we’ve been inundated with one scam after another. The earliest one that I can remember and have lived through is the moon landing hoax. Of course, since then, we’ve had various assassinations and wars… 9/11, etc. Basically, our society has been built upon one big fat fucking lie after another.
The COVID hoax comes to mind, now, at this point of developing instabilities throughout eastern Europe, themselves, the result of media hype and governmental legerdemain. While it’s wound down substantially, especially due to the eastern debacle, there are still those that adhere to their programming and insist on blaming a common cold on the dreaded COVID monster. I’ve lost patience with these morons as we live in an age where this kind of Medieval thinking shouldn’t even be a factor in our lives. I’ve had to write off a few friends and family because of their steadfast refusal to question the emperor’s nakedness. Make no mistake! While I am a proponent of free choice, that doesn’t extend to where that choice buggers up my life and freedom of action and choice. I feel the time has never been better to make these morons accountable for their choices and that they needn’t expect any help or sympathy or encouragement in their headlong rush to disaster.
Dealing with the subject of morons, one other name pops up out of my Rolodex of dupes… Steve Isdahl. Isdahl has a popular (right away, if it’s popular, you know it’s frivolous nonsense!) YouTube channel dealing with the subject of Bigfoot and an assortment of other freaks and space alien/paranormal crap. This guy is so far down the garden path with this garbage that I doubt his sanity, anymore. His only redeeming feature is that he doesn’t trust the authorities, which is wise, but, then he goes off the other deep end on what are for the most part hoaxes and the products of fevered minds and egocentric narcissism. One wonders just how much damage some hick hunting guide from the suburbs of Abbotsford can do with these paranormal rantings and ravings. He hosts a one-man email-in show where he reads (or tries to) emails from supposed encounters with the big forest dude, his less-than-oratorically-correct narration of other less-than-oratorically-correct fans’ “encounters” stretching the limits of one’s patience and ability to listen to hours of less-than-oratorically-correct bullshit. Over the months, the stories have gotten more fantastic with every email, most of which is the natural evolution of what occurs when you’re subjected to mounds and mounds of relentless bullshit over long periods of time…
This is a perfect illustration of last-day events portrayed in scripture, when people would go after the mutterings of every unclean spirit, discarding common sense and preferring to believe a lie rather than truth. This comes from the inherent laziness and indolence that we all have as human beings. Not much effort is made, anymore, to investigate truth to see if it is, in fact, truth and not some lie fomented by those with a definite agenda in mind. One accurate method I have for determining fact from horseshit is the popularity of whatever it is that one desires to test. If it’s accepted and lauded by the majority of folks, guaranteed it’s bullshit and not worth a second’s pause. The more outlandish and idiotic it is, the better it’s chances of acceptance by an intellectually-starved public. Websites like this one that deal in the hard truth and FACTS are not especially interesting to a pleasure-loving, excitement-driven populace, not into anything that might require they make an adjustment in their lives or make some sacrifice.
Now, we have the sabre-rattling in Eastern Europe to rattle our already media-frazzled minds and I’m wondering what my next post should carry in terms of hope for a generation that has purposefully driven logic and foresight from their lives. We shall see what we’ll see!
