So, It occurred to me today, amid the numerous "Sunspot" posts, and the "Obama in Denver" posts, and the "Nibiru/ELEnin" posts and all the other doom
and gloom posts that appear here with ever-increasing frequency, that the popularity of TEOTWAWKI threads and fear mongering in general owes a large
part of its momentum to "hope."
Now, by "hope" I do not mean the campaign promises of "he who shall remain nameless", but rather a growing desire to see all of the absurdity that is
today's world come to an end in the most exciting way possible, and indeed (in my opinion) the only way to truly, once and for all, balance the scale,
at least for a little while...
We all know that the corruption running rampant in all the worlds governments are not some "abberation" that only pops up every now and then, but a
normal, everyday, and integral part of the status quo. The words "Government" and "Corruption" may as well be synonyms.
They (Corruption and Government) both run true and deep. And in their present state, they are both cancerous. Things are so far out of hand, in fact,
that the process of election and voting could NEVER, NEVER, even begin to fix all that is wrong, no matter who or what puppett holds office.
Revolution is even a more horrific concept, because at this stage in the game, its very hard to differentiate between the oppressed and the oppressors
- Everyone and no-one could easilly wear both hats at the same time. At least as far as everyone abstracting their own realities is concerned...that
line is so very fuzzy that chaos is the only description I can think of to even attempt to visualize what could happen.
So, that brings me back to the point of this post, which is to address why it seems to me that everyone is so "hopeful" for some giant cataclysmic
event to come and wipe the slate clean...to flip the earthly "etch a sketch" over and shake...
It is born out of the knowledge that for the future to even have a future...this S *HYTE has got to go, and its dug in so deep, that it can only be
fixed by a return to baseline. Just like a wild fire burns out the old to allow for a beautiful new beginning, so must our world "as we know it" go
the way of the DoDo bird.
I think we all subconsciously know in our hearts that the world needs another "Biblical Flood" and ELEnin, Nibiru, Meteors, Nuclear War or Aliens
could be the 21st century "vehicle" that could deliver it...even if it is just wishful thinking.
So don't be too hard on the Nib-Tards, or ELEnoids. Let the Mayan-aise folk hold on to their hopes for a brighter tomorrow, because underneath the
skin of every cynic - is a disappointed idealist.
And thats the truth... as "I" see it.
