I've said for decades that we've entered a new Dark Ages and people know and think critically less and less by the day as a result of the dumbing down of the population. Is that itself a conspiracy? Well, to turn the tables on Republicans, it very well might be. After all, they've been defunding education and working to pour as many brain-destroying toxins into our environment as they possibly can for decades. But it's pretty much a moot point in my book because we as a population seem to have reached such numbers that we can no longer manage efficiently and most of us have trouble processing all of the information heaped upon us in a typical day. That makes it easier to add in the fakery. It just doesn't help that a large percentage of the information stew is fake for real. The end result is dysfunction on a grand scale and it's a dysfunction that is celebrated! Ah, but soon, we won't even have enough drinkable water or breathable air, so what does any of it matter? We're already reduced to a bunch of warring ant colonies whose minds have been scrambled by toxins of every kind, from chemical to philosophical. COVID? Just add that to the slowmoving longterm suicide program we all live in.
And the people bowed and prayed, to the neon god they made.
- Paul Simon, from "The Sound Of Silence"
Meanwhile, I know that lots, if not most, Republicans will tell you that the moon landings were faked (interesting that they never use the plural on that one) and that there are child labor camps on Mars. But, I'm here to tell you not to worry. Spending time thinking about such things is pointless. Why? Simple. Didn't you hear? Space itself is fake. The whole damn thing. All of it. There, now doesn't that make you feel more secure? That's the how and why of the republican mind in action. So, stop worrying about our planet being hit by a comet or asteroid. Who needs planetary urban renewal designed by some bearded fake overlord of the sky? We're destroying all life on the planet just fine by ourselves.
That's how it's all working. Hmmm. Now who planned it that way? And now a word from The X-Files about the so-called Deep State:
I'm sorry. You're telling me that the U.S. government, the same government that gave us AMTRAK, not to mention the Susan B. Anthony dollar, is behind some of the darkest, most far-reaching conspiracies on the planet. That's just crazy!
We now return you to your usual broadcast. As a great man once said, "Good night, and good luck." Really, you're gonna need it.
