and only at great cost.
Was throwing out rationality, decency, morality, and the Argussian way of life.
It was expensive, though. But once you look at issues logically it all slots neatly into place:
facing facts and integrating observations into Reality. Which doesn’t come cheap, my recommendation: don’t do it*.
IT WOULD APPEAR
- that the Conspiracy Nutters (some of them) have it right
- there will be another world war
- nukes will be tossed about with mad rapturous abandonment
- billions will die
- etc etc, you know, the old ‘Doomsday’ scenario writ large
A LONG TERM
plan is right now being enacted and will come, eventually, to fruition.
I’ll admit I’m insane. To even think of such a thing requires a certifiable mind, ergo I’m batty.
I don’t believe in flying saucer space-aliens, ‘greys’, gods, angels/demons or any other such.
But I do believe in unpleasant self-interested people with ambitions and capabilities (wealth & power) far exceeding my own. I also believe that they will win, because their mentality is beyond our normal credibility (despite history).
IN THE MEANTIME
reduced to the role of spectator I’m making a flask of coffee so I can sit back and watch the show (until part of it).
It may see me out (I hope) but if it catches up with me I’ll have the dubious satisfaction of knowing that I was right—
We are a band of brothers …
—and truly we are all brothers at heart, united in the common aim of serving humanity.
