There was all kinds of hype about a company wanting to rebuild the temple of Baal all over the world. I thought the plan seemed far too blatant and in your face to be anything less than a farce even for a world as illusory as the one so many people think we live in. It seems they put the kibosh on that, maybe next year... Maybe it isn't even needed.
The Panama papers have also been making the rounds. I find them disturbing more for what they don't contain than for what they do. I'm not the only person who thinks it reads more like a CIA press release than an indiscriminate data blob so I won't bother to regale the story. In fact, I think it is a CIA press release after all.
I also read that jobless claims are on the decline. There's no link because unemployment numbers are the most heavily manipulated statistic ever created. But, I do have a theory about that too. Grim though it may be, the conventional punch-clock jobs just don't seem to be a reliable source of income anymore.
Insanity prevails and permeates everything it touches so it would seem. The more I read about all those transhumans that need our donations to build 'it' washrooms that fit in the 2 dimensional space between his and hers, the more I think to myself: you either have an innie or an outie, whether you know how to cope with that or not isn't everybody else's problem, fuck off! I wanted to be spider-man when I grew up but you don't hear me asking for special treatment, do you? It's all a front to keep us off guard and hating one another anyway.
Injustice simply runs rampant as most normal people would be fired for fucking the receptionist on the conference room table, but not police who can fuck in their car with only a tap on the wrist. In fact one of these officers should be having statutory rape charges, but isn't. Then a again, other ex-police are guilty of not proving themselves guilty, which, I used to think was perfectly legal. I'll add that to the growing list of things I used to think which simply are not true.
Overall, the plan appears to be working and people are being led exactly where the shadow puppet masters want them to be. Capitalism isn't broken, socialism isn't broken, currency is broken. And so long as we don't own currency, we are practising neither in the first place.
