Remember the New American Century. The neocons loved planning for it, strategizing it, and talking it up. And they fully believed their own press clippings! Well, here we are now… in the fucking midst of it! And what do we find?

    It’s so obvious that NOTHING is working and there is a feeling out there that “nothing’ is going to work… and yet we are reluctant to abolish that, that we created and let us all just go on in our own merry way (cause we’re shit scared of the other guy … who in turn is shit scared of us … so we invented this system to protect us … that now we know is not protecting us … and it’s all held up with bailing wire called MONEY … and yet we’re too scared shitless to abolish it.

    As John Lennon intimated “It’s easy if you try” … and would resolve 95% of ALL our human problems.

    The 5% left would be so easily navigable that even very young children would be able to navigate it.

    Just try REALLY thinking about it. Yeah just try …….

    The promise of a better future after the end of the Cold War was everywhere. But it did not succeed. Who are we gonna blame now? Muslims? Russians? Or will we finally understand that it is our own culture that serves as an excuse for the fucked up future?
