So I may upset some readers tonight but I feel that we are truly entering into a new worldwide dark age and it is being led by America. Our beliefs are absurd, our Government is corrupt and we have no idea how we got to this high standard of living in the first place. So without further ado here are my top five signs that we are now entering a new worldwide dark age:
#5- The Arts
Lets go back in time, the renascence was made of people making beautiful art, music, paintings and ideas,… I think of Michelangelo, Beethoven, and Shakespeare. Ideas that transform and transcend the current way of thinking, what do todays youth flock to? Shit that is shoveled down their throats from modern media, shit like American Idol, Jay-Z, and all the other rinse and repeat bull that floods our modern media as “art”. Less than a year ago I attended a showing of the Phantom of the Opera in Las Vegas, that was beautiful but 90% of todays youth would probably roll their eyes at, they would ask “where are the lasers? and where were the rappers” they wouldn’t know art if it was placed in front of hem on a solver platter! Now I ask name one artist today that will stand the test of time, again that same 90% couldn’t pull a name from their ass if their life depended on it. We have been gifted with so many mediums today and we waste them all on schlock that might make a buck rather than make art like say Stanley Kubrick did during his lifetime.
#4- US Worldwide Murder
We call it progress, but is that really what a drone strike is? C’mon people, wake up, the US is responsible for more deaths worldwide than AIDS, and we all hate AIDS. Terrorism kills less Americans annually than honey bees yet the Government uses that as an excuse to murder thousands of people every year. Then the US Government calls it terrorism when one of these small little countries strikes back, I call that retaliation but they call it terrorism. We have a two-party system so we can have change when we want it, yet there really is no change ever, it is a nice little quandary they have you all in and nothing will ever change as long as you keep voting republican or democrat, I mean we have been at war non stop since the 1940′s!
#3- Retail and Service
So the Government tells you that jobs are coming back, America is not unemployed, HAHAHAHA, you know what sectors are growing? In the past 15 years America has gone from a 50/50 split in Production VS Service jobs to a 90/10 split, that’s right 90% of jobs in America now are service! that means you service someone else… and you make jack shit, that’s because China is having their own little renascence and they are now producing everything you buy, while you service they rich fuckers!
#2- Big Brother
Do you relies how many rights you no longer have? The Government is taking your right to privacy, your right to bear arms, your right to free speech, your right to freedom of assembly, and more! Look around and people say well I am not doing anything wrong, so it doesn’t affect me… until it does! Your emails are being read, your browsing history is being logged and your postal mail is being documented all under the guise that this will stop terrorism, again something that kills fewer people annually than fucking honey bee’s! Oppressive Government will lead to disillusionment and that is what leads to collapse, Government needs to back off, they do not need to hold our hands, they should be a minor role in our lives otherwise why not live in Russia or China?
#1 WAR WAR WAR
The world is at war, look around, the Middle East is burning, North Korea is being used by Russia and China to prod the western world and the US has so many troops deployed around the world in “Peace Keeping” efforts that always end in more turmoil than before we arrived. Look into past dark ages, what led up to them? WAR! The entire US economy is built on the war machine, and the spoils of wars, it can only last so long before it all implodes. I would be surprised if the world as we know it doesn’t undergo a drastic shift in the next twenty years. The sad thing is that most Americans are so ignorant, so complacent that they can’t even see it, as long as they get their next football game or next reality TV show, they can’t see beyond the idiot box they stare into every night.
The Dark Age is upon us, name me one scientist, name me one real musician that actually writes and performs music, name me one Artist, most Americans cannot do this…. SAD!
