I am forty six years old, and some days I feel like I am about a thousand years old both mentally and physically and some days I feel like I am six
years old both mentally and physically.
There are the young at heart and then there are the old at heart.
I first started being exposed to conspiracies at the age of 6 by a maternal grandfather and his friends who were thrilled that I took such an interest
in to what they considered to be the academic and political and not simply conspiratorial.
Yes I grew up different, so different it necessitated the government and my family and my self to create a different path for me to do it. I never
knew what it was like to see a high school football game or go to a homecoming dance or be ‘normal’.
What I did get to know was the world I was living in, much more realistically and intimately than my contemporaries and peers were.
This didn’t knock me back a peg in life, in fact it accelerated me up several more. When the other children my age were learning reading, writing
and arithmetic, I was learning how to solve and adapt to complex social problems and logistics.
When they were learning theories about things, I was busy developing the real theories and strategies in how to deal with the much more complex real
time real world things and the many shaded grays of reality that it involves.
Sure I got my nose bloodied from time to time in the school of hard knocks and faced some incredible adversities but that which does not kill us only
serves to make us stronger.
Along the way that’s exactly what I became strong in knowledge and a depth in knowledge strong in practical knowhow and when and where and how to
use it and like the rest of us I laughed, and cried, and learned along the way loving who I could, how I could, when I could and doing the best I
While many of my more youthful contemporaries and peers might have thought I was nuts, or one brick shy of a load who didn’t think I was nuts were
the highly educated Ivy league and Bohemian Grove types I would come to do business with and socialize who in fact had nothing but respect and
marveled at my out of the box thinking and unorthodox approach to things.
Mommy and Daddy don’t teach that, neither does Harvard or Yale, being observant, inquisitive, honest with yourself and self reliant is what teaches
The truth is in all my travels and I have travelled far and wide, and in all my social circles, and I have been involved in ones on every
socioeconomic and political strata, I have never once yet met a person who could prove that the things I started learning at six but aren’t taught
to others were wrong.
The truth is the world is far nuttier than I am, and there is a fine line between genius and insanity called success.
Succeed in your endeavors and perspectives and you are genius, fail in them and you are a nut.
I would have to say because of the overwhelming failed state of the world, wars, poverty, famine, scarcity and total indifference to these things the
system and the normal people are what are craziest of all.
Sooner or later the young have to inherited these things and while the establishment and the system and the people who desperately want to believe its
working love lying to themselves maybe its about time we stopped lying to our children as part of that.
The sooner they learn the better, and with luck they won’t have to be dropping off or rescuing anyone from their deaths or killing anyone either,
that my friend is surely nuts if anything was.
Misery does love company but don’t you have enough already.
Let the kids be to discover the world, after all they are a part of it too!
