I am taking a hiatus from social media until after the 2016 Presidential election in the United States of Amerikka.
I have zero interest in being shamed for my refusal to continue to prop up a political machine designed for the singular purpose of maintaining the current status quo.
For those that are unfamiliar with the current status quo let me break it down for you.
We exist to feed the wealth and power generating machines that are the boards of directors and shareholders of the mega-national corporations.
Sure they throw us a bone every now and then to keep us in line when they are not rolling out ever newer and greater distractions to accomplish the same goal.
They keep us divided by promoting imaginary differences.
I have it a little bit better than you because of my lack of melanin and an extra chromosome.
Buy into the scheme and you might advance a level or two before you pass on to whatever comes next. If you are really smart you might be able to use the Warp Whistles of athletic achievement, good looks, or technological genius to skip several levels. But you are still a piece of shit as far as they are concerned.
Me? I am getting closer and closer to just opting out of everything and having my friends and relatives look at me crazy for not using credit cards and maybe retiring to a remote permaculture farm.
My lifespan is too short at this point to worry about more than making sure my wife and kids are provided reasonably happy and healthy.
If I can accomplish those monumental tasks I will at least be able to die in a long, long time feeling reasonably satisfied with how I got by.
Hopefully I will be back tomorrow.
