Does anyone else feel as though we are living in the end of days?
I know many people who feel like this. I am talking about people who have
solid jobs, professionals, trades people, health care workers, great educations, normal lives. They have said things to me recently that normally
belong on forums like ATS.
But the "end of days" can simply mean the end to a certain type of "day". The end to an era or a certain type of lifestyle and mentality.
I think people are starting to wake up to the fact that the way we live, is fundamentally wrong. That our political, economic and ecological practices
are creating more inequality, more poverty, more injustice, more division and more environmental damage than can be ignored by one having a good
People know something is wrong. We know it! You don't have to listen to Gerald Celente or watch Zeitgeist to know this! GreenPeace is not needed to
explain to most people that we are trashing the Planet, We have British Petroleum to tell us that!
So much has happened to humanity since the towers came down it feels like a new reality is starting to emerge and one that is completely alien
to say the least.
Unfortunately, for me, this is probably only relevant to the USA. I have travelled to Europe recently and the feeling over
there is more an economic reality check than a terrorist inspired reality check. As an Australian, we have been isolated from both the war on terror
and the GFC to a great extent, none the less, the feelings that you refer to in the OP are present within my community, even more so given recent
Regardless of the inspiration, people are actually taking stock of our lives, our planet and the way we are heading.
Atleast, that is how it seems to me.
In which ever direction we choose to look there seems to be total chaos.
This is a reflection what we fundamentally know, but have not
fully admitted to as a global culture.
When ever we see extreme weather now, on some level we must reflect and ponder on our impact on the environment. When ever we see poverty we reflect
and ponder economics in our society. When ever we see violence and war, we are reminded, and reminded, and reminded again of the politics and the
religion and the madness.
It is now everywhere.
There is no escaping from all that we have created. That is my opinion.
What we do though, as humans(especially on ATS as I have observed it), is that we externalize our hopes and fears into a mythology. So people refer to
armegeddon, or the return of Jesus. Some hope aliens will land and inspire us as a people to move forward. New age philosophy speaks of our collective
desires manifesting into an avatar that will herald a new enlightenment, others talk of asension, Indigo Kids or galactic alignments, a new
evolutionary step, ancient calanders, Planet X etc etc.
These are religious methods of dealing with a deep hope for change that is inspired by what you know and feel in your OP.
You know that something is fundamentally wrong with the way we live.
You feel it to your bones.
We can take nature for example, earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, cold weather and I’m sure this summer will bring with it, its own new set of
problems and on and on and on...
Yes it will.
Scientists have been telling us that the weather would become more eratic and extreme for a long while now. Volcanoes in conjunction with this does
magnify it some what. But none of the volcanic activity of late has been significant IMHO, and there are plenty of threads on this already.
The earth, the people, the world its all changing and it's changing really fast.
Change is always present. What is missing now, IMHO,
and what inspires posts like yours is that these changes are far more uncertain then ever before. With great uncertainty comes great fear. People all
over the world realize how little control they have, how forces can destroy their worlds at will. The weather, 9/11, the wars, the economics, the
The world as we know it is losing faith in the pillars that have held it for the last few centuries that have simply been believed in with little or
no real questioning by the West because it has served most of us well. That has changed significantly.
Even our faith in science is being attacked in these times we live in.
Perhaps it is just me and I am too involved in stories like mass animal deaths and disclosure and the like or perhaps something really is
happening. I just can't help feel that the current rioting in Egypt is the line that humanity is crossing into a new realm of reality.
Something is happening my friend. It is just not as abstract as we make it sometimes. People are sick of being treated unfairly.
In Egypt for example, 50% of people under 30 are unemployed.
These people are fighting for a future. Tunisia and Egypt may turn into more within that region. Morocco and Algeria have seen rioting recently
related to food, fuel and the cost of living, this is within regimes like Tunisia and Egypt where leaders live lavish lifstyles.
With this event, just the amount of people involved it is becoming more and more intensified.
We now have a salacious culture with each event needing to be more powerful than the one before..
It is almost like a lust and desire for extremism without us even realising that we are in fact secretly gluttonous for more chaos.
This is just the start. Trust me. I'll take a wager with anyone here, we will be seeing more and more of this as Governments impose austerity
measures in order to fund debt to world banks as food prices increase, fuel increases, water shortages increase. Droughts in Russia, floods in
Pakistan, Brazi and Columbia just to name a few places effected, will add further food shortages and strains.
This is not conjecture or conspiracy, the UN actually announced that 2011 would see similar conditions to 2008 in relation to food shortages and
Add to this young people like Egypt and Tunisia fighting corrupt governments and in Europe protesting against the GFC impact on their own nations and
education(like the U.K riots of higher fees, French protests etc, etc.) and you have a huge tinder box.
We are now active participants in the revolution and we are the ones taking a stand, we are the ones waving weapons and throwing stones, we are
fighting and dying. The time of peaceful protests have come to an end.
Blood brings Blood. If peace is what we want, so it must be earnt with peace. We need to stop participating in the system. That is what needs to be
changed. But that is a whole other thread.
From here on in every march, every protest will have a sense of world unity to it. We no longer fight the small fight but come together to wage
war against the machine.
The easiest way to stop a machine is to turn it of, not fight it. We need to stop being fuel that runs the
It is my belief that we are at this very moment crossing a precipice where the future is unknown to the majority and yet the minority control
You are right and you are wrong IMHO. The level of uncertainty about our global future is at its highest that I can ever remember seeing or feeling.
Weather, Environmentally, Ecologically, scientifically,Finacially, Politically, Spiritually. We have already crossed the precipice my friend, we
cannot go on living like we do, or can we go back to how things were. We simply must force change, but it will come at a huge price to the minority
you mention and they will simply be unwilling to pay it.
The bottom line is that if the world government really wanted peace then they would send an ambassador to tell the world they are laying down
their arms and distributing world wealth equally. These people in power do not even care about money they are beyond that. Money is a commodity for
the layman. They move in circles of great power and influence where money has no effect.
Money is all they have. Without money they have
nothing, no power, no military, no minions. Money is the resources that fuels their power and influence.
Yes these riots may settle but the world will never be the same we will continue to make the next event even greater than the last until we
come face to face with the enemy in an all out war. That is the way things are heading and it seems there is no stopping it save a messiah, Christ, or
Ufo world event taking place.
I ask you all what in God's name is happening to humanity, the earth and the world as we know it....?
We know now my friend. We know we have to change. We know that we are ruining the planet. We know that the system is unfair and corrupt amd rigged. We
know that those that we select to represent us, do no such thing. We know that things like shelter, health, education, employment, food and water,
things that we take for granted in the west are no longer gaurenteed simply by living in the West.
We know the dream is a lie, and we know we have to wake up.
And.......we know that we are waking up. All over the world.
Good Luck my friend. Stay strong. Don't let fear hold you back.
