Micky D and the dying gasps of decadence and materialism

They teamed up, you see.. McDonalds and Disney and other lesser demigods of Pop Culture. Mattel. Coca Cola… Teach the kids to embrace buying more than they can afford, destroy economies and ecology alike, celebrate greed, waste, … and the imminent death of the world. Destroy or subjugate other cultures to bow to the mass-produced ‘culture’ we’re told by the Masters to say is “American”. When the snubs and insults don’t do the trick, send in the Marines.

Apocalypse How? McD and some toy company selling buying. No, that’s not a mistake, poor grammar, although I’m perfectly capable of doing so. They’re Shopping Toys. With anthropomorphism, faces, eyes, smiles on toy furniture, cars, airplanes, food. You remember the 70s or can access archives of that long-last era of errors? “I don’t eat anything that has a face” but now they succeeded in branding children to accept fruits and vegetables and bits of dead animals smiling, laughing, talking singing ‘eat me eat me eat me”. Roman Imperial decadence with graphic effects changing in nano- and soon pico-second sequences. The goal of Artificial Intelligence isn’t so much to imprison us by direct violence. Just to get us to destroy our rational thought processes and the ability to change them for ourselves. Such destruction can’t be forced on us, not directly.

They have to shame us as fuddy-duddies which is a fuddy duddy phrase unto itself, ridicule us into accepting the mastery of the zeit-geist, the collective unconscious.Don’t understand the words? Maybe use a dictionary, a thesaurus and encyclopedia, do it soon because the paper ‘hard copy’ are becoming scarce, we’re shamed into abandoning such a fundamental power as using your hands to turn pages, Proactive rather than passive. The power to be an autonomous being who doesn’t need somebody or some amorphous cyber-being tell us what and when to think. In other words, put down the remote control and pick up a book. Fight back. Don’t become a blob of atrophy eating itself. They’re not just persuading you to give all your money, what you physically have. They want everything you WILL possess.

You want to resist. Good. Act on that thought. They’re selling buying.Literally. They’re teaching the next generation before the current crop of children aren’t even matured. They’re teaching them to teach their future children to buy buy.  Decadent is Latin for “decayed” or just plain rotten.

The notion they are teaching themselves the mechanics of suicide… has no palliative property. Your pain won’t go away from knowing the villains will also share your portion of Hell.
