For many years now I have wondered what in the world would have power-holding oligarchs to, in unison, abandon long-established governmental practices in favor of whatever this shit has all turned out to be. We are so far from where we were just 20 years ago and the abandonment of long-held principles of democracy and individual rights so eroded by the actions of various factions around the world suggest there’s a unified theory to explain it all.
I’ve often wondered about things like meteorites or aliens or volcanic eruptions that science has uncovered, and our various Global Deep States (GDS) are aware of, but have not informed the public of. Perhaps they know the end is coming and perhaps they are using this time to party their fucking hearts out instead of telling us.
Maybe it’s Brood X. As if 2020 and Covid + Stolen Democracy were not bad enough, this is the year we’ll get the 17-year horde of the largest and most geographically diverse of the cicada swarms. Maybe they’ll meet the Murder Hornets and we’ll all be eaten alive as the bugs themselves revolt against our revolting set of global circumstances.
All I know is that every motherfucker in any political office in any country right now needs to be defenestrated immediately. 6th floor or higher, as a precautionary measure. YMMV. This is an open thread.
