Even with WW3 maybe only HOURS away, you are still all laughing and joking about the possible Death of the World.

My take on the possibility of WW3 with Captain Cheeto at the helm is that it ain't gonna happen. 

Besides that, we have a global economy now.  That economy is balanced by all of the fuckers at the top across all of the nations.  Murika is the bully in charge of that with Captain Cheeto head bully in charge.  He makes a real good bully.  He's stupid and doesn't know it, and he's weak. 

Anyways, I listen to the Murikan news on satellite radio these days.  I do that to hear human voices in conversation because even I get lonely driving this truck.  I listen to Fox, CNN, MSNBC, BBC, and NPR.  They are all full of ****, and I get a good laugh listening to their "fair and balanced" propaganda bullshit.  They are very good at getting you to believe their bullshit.  But it's all bullshit and it's bad for you.  I don't believe any of it. 

Yesterday I listened to the entire Zuckerberg hearing, and all of the Senators with their questions.  Interesting.  Apparently Swampbook doesn't sell data...lol...according to Suckerburg.  He also seems like a likable fella.  I found myself thinking, as I listened to our senators, that maybe democracy is working.  Maybe it's not a Corporatocracy running everything.  Then I laughed at myself for thinking something so preposterous. 

I don't think we are going to have WW3, especially not nuclear WW3.  Nobody wins with nuclear WW3, and that's why I think that.  Even the .0001% lose in that case.  They will all just "saber rattle" and take conventional pop shots at each other.  Captain Baby Cheetos will keep tweeting his digital diarrhea, and nobody will take him seriously with exception to the members of the global idiocracy. 

Eventually war will happen in Murika.  It will happen when gas and diesel stop being viable at the pumps.  When the fuel drys up for the masses we will have the end.  There will be massive civil unrest, looting, and rednecks and gangbangers out shootin' it all up.  When the gas dries up it's over.  Until that happens BAU will just keep on keepin' on in all corners of the world.  Unless, that is, the world shakes us off like flees with climate change or some over natural disaster with global scope. 

The only ends I see are two.  Either we run out of viable fuel or the biosphere puts an end to it.  We won't have global war, not until either of the two options I just mentioned happen.

not even Billionaires can stop the progress of Collapse.

A Collapse that has a nuclear strike on 12 April 2018 could have been stopped if you had got off your asses in 1980 and acted bravely, and no I don't mean by voting for Carter.  You've had Earth First, The Weathermen, Tim McVeigh, Ted Kaczynski, Ploughshares, to inspire you, but you told yourself jokes and stuck to safe subjects for discussion instead.

Without WW3, Collapse would play out very differently. THAT is what billionaires can't stop.  But YOU could have stopped WW3 if you had bothered.

Damn, I already wrote about this in my lost post. LOL.

Short version...I have definite regrets. I could have gone a different way, and at this point I do regret not becoming more of an activist. I never thought things would get to where we are now so fast. I knew it was likely, even when I was 16. But I thought collapse was in the very distant future. I knew about Silent Spring. I knew about Bucky Fuller. But where I lived there was no real movement to join. I only read about such things in the Whole Earth Catalog.

By 1980 my course was set. I'd have had to change course in 1974. I even thought about moving to the Farm back then. I liked what they were doing. But it wasn't like now. I couldn't email Albert Bates like I can now. I led a very isolated life, far from most like-minded people. I lived in my head a lot, and still do.

I'm not a joiner or a crusader. I've always been cynical about politics anyway. I didn't start voting at all until 1980, and I was trying to prove myself wrong about it being useless. That's why I did it. So nobody could say I didn't participate.

I hope somewhere in the multiverse there is a version of the US of A that listened to Bucky and didn't vote for Ronnie Raygun. Instead they got an early handle on PO and climate change...and managed to create some kind of society that didn't starve most people while making a few people wildly affluent. I really do hope that world is real, and maybe I can be born into that in my next incarnation. This earth is a cooked goose, and it's all over but the dying, which will commence soon enough.

I didn't change the world, but I get the lesson.

Getting the lesson, to me, might be just as important as changing the world.
 


Eddie and Lucid,

GREAT posts!  :

I agree WWIII ain't gonna happen. That said, I would LOVE to see the price of oil go to $300 a barrel! $1000 a barrel would be even better! 


But, if that does not happen within a couple of years, the climate is going to GIT us. Sure, it will take a while to git most of us and a few of us may make it all the way through. I do not find that to be much of a consolation. 😓

if it has not works, is dead, being alone.
