First reply on ATS so cut me a little slack, but there seems to be a divide here on ATS. Many want a complete reboot of the system via some sort of
cataclysmic event, whether it be by meteor, comet, rogue planet, plague, World War Tres, etc. And a **majority of the rest, while they agree there is
something very wrong with this world, believe this global plight can be solved with action. I’m assuming they’re pro revolution (I would hope
they weren’t naïve enough to think they could ballet a vote to fix this quandary). Unfortunately, for many, a revolutionary victory may seem
impossible. After all, they (the white gloved chaps with an affinity for giant owls and rubbing their hands together) have all the money, all the
bombers, all the warships, and biological weaponry. They have the military, the best bunkers, and technology we could never compete against. The
matter seems rather hopeless. Why go to war if a celestial body moving twenty-four thousand km/h can do the job for us?
The problem lies in the aftermath, assuming you survive the calamity in the first place. What comes next? The “elite” were hiding in their
awesome bunkers whilst you were dodging burning debris like anvils in a Looney Toons cartoon. They have underground gardens to keep them fed, leaving
you to decide which corpse looks the least disgusting at the moment, holding your bottle of Heinz ketchup. While you’re busy shooting daggers at
every Tom, Dick, and Jane that eyeballs your shopping cart full of toiletries and guns you don’t have ammo for, they’re busy making bets on
warring clans via satellite feed while they have a healthy dose of Cabin Boy to the sweets tunes of U2. Once they decide to emerge from their hobbit
holes, while you’re malnourished and sleep deprived, you now get the epic task of doing battle with these people that were looking for a less than
50 mil population to keep control over (which has now been handed to them on a silver platter via our hopes and dreams played out a la ‘The
Road’), and they’ve brought with them all of their cool toys to rule us with. So we get our disaster scenario, they get their inevitable win…..
and that’s Jenga.
You may be saying; “Garkiniss, you’re a pessimist.” To which I reply, maybe a little, but remember this….
The world needs both optimists and pessimists. An optimist invented the airplane. A pessimist invented the parachute. There are two sides to every
coin, and not understanding both sides of a situation is far more dangerous than any Elitist Plot.
**I say majority because there seems to be a few who believe the world is peachy. We call these people narcissists; they live happy, blind
lives, and care not for the woes of the rest of the world. They live in bliss, and we all know what tree bliss grows on.
[post scriptum] I do have a theory as to why the New World Order… is it really new? How long has this been going on? Anywho, my apologies, I
digress, and all of those other etiquette pleasantries. I do have a theory as to why they would want to do what it is they’re doing, but I’ll
save it for a later, more appropriate thread, so as not to taint the subject of this fella’s good work.
