APOCALYPSE RV- PART 2
The history of idiots declaring the imminent collapse of civilization is lengthy and its members infamous. How many in the 70’s declared that the Uranus Emperor was going to vaporize the entire Earth globe and the only hope for rescue was to drop acid, then kill yourself in an apparent act of piety that would prove yourself to the pilots of the Mother Ship, assuring you had a place in the berth for one of a select few immigrants? Well, you probably never heard of that one, most likely because there were no survivors. Not that it didn’t happen. Jesus Freaks have been herding the faithful to the tops of mountains ( the elevated difference an extremely important distinction since if you were too low the powers of your divine deity of choice were insufficient to elevate you up into the Promised Land. Or, perhaps it was that these dudes were hip to the important fact only known to themselves and their disciples that God was just a disguise for said Uranus Emperor and while deities might be able to actually suck your fat ass up from the lowest elevation, say several hundred feet below sea level in some forsaken craphole of a barren desert ( and, shall we even ask why the desert was were all the important religions got started? Was it because God liked the heat? Were minor gods such as Odin ill favored because they thought the epitome of a good time was getting frost bite on your junk? I’d think that any god worthy of worship was more into the whole garden scene. Trees, flowers, buzzing bees and unicorns at the ends of rainbows ), it is a well known fact that the pull from an extra terrestrial intergalactic vessel was limited and it was essential that those wishing for rescue better get to the top of the highest hill around or they were completely shit otta luck. Hell, even the military ships were only capable of about fifty percent more power, not enough for below sea level rescue. Just ask any anal probe abductee survivor- they’ll tell you. And why would you want to go to another planet to survive? I’d wager that would be worse than immigrating to
Paris in case the Krauts ever invaded . Hell, I wouldn’t even visit Mexico way back before the failed narco state of today, and that was for no better reason than I was afraid my pale ass would end up in prison if I didn’t have enough of a bribe to please the traffic cop when I was busted for jaywalking. Of course, that was twenty years before the Bush/Obammy police state was established and the TSA would pull you off a Greyhound and throw you in Gitmo if your tan looked a bit too permanent. England begins to look a bit peaceful, law enforcement wise. Mexico

The whole cult thing got so serious that the CIA got involved. We can’t have all those hippy punks chucking their taxpaying jobs to go off grid and eating granola as they were waiting for the Apocalypse. Yes, I understand most folks reluctance to envision a world were the prison escapees are hunted down and forced back into the barracks and given extended sentences for the attempt at freedom. Well, Paul Newman, what we have here is a failure to communicate. Do you really think that all those rock stars all happened to overdose or die in plane crashes? Really? Just during that one period? Not since? I’d wager a donut that our intelligence services had a hand in most of them. Sure, celebrities are killing themselves off left and right, but sometimes a coincidence is just too much to believe with those kinds of numbers. Read “Acid Dreams” for a thrilling tale of CIA involvement in the LSD trade. It wasn’t beyond belief at the time to think the government wanted to mold the countries culture and its future. They don’t try much anymore, but that might just be because their war was won. Poor guys, with the end of communism and the civilians all docile and subjugated, what was left for them to do? Watch the Taliban? The folks the CIA created in
to fight the Russians. Afghans were never much interested in politics outside their immediate vicinity. And Bin Laden may or may not have cared overly much about the Great Satan if she wasn’t parked on holy ground. But mastermind a box cutter strike? Sure. Those box cutters also took down a skyscraper blocks and blocks away from the Twin Towers, and punched a hole in the wall of the Pentagon only incidentally the same size as a missile ( a bit smaller than the purported jet engine size ). Towel Heads didn’t have much experience in attacking domestic targets and molding public opinion ( I don’t believe they could even fathom how we think, since we affront God by not beating our women like they richly deserve ), but the CIA and its sister organizations sure do. Assassinating presidents, civil rights leaders and attorney generals, eliminating the means for mind expansion, trying to subdue the rebellious music, and don’t even get me started on manufacturing disease and plagues. Afghanistan
Okay, perhaps just a little. Here we have AIDS, a disease that very swiftly starts decimating the gay community. The disease almost simultaneously starts in
San Francisco, New York and the Caribbean as well as Africa. Here is the course of events we are supposed to believe without thinking too much about it. Some Bushman in the Dark Continent either humps a monkey or is bitten by one, somehow infects a traveler, the disease then spreads faster than an airborne plague outbreak. Nothing else to see here, please move along. My money is on the defense or intelligence community funding the disease and deliberately spreading it. One, most of us absolutely despise gays ( one presumes that Naval Intelligence wasn’t involved ). And two, intravenous drug users were just down the enemies list from homos. So, really, who was going to object to those folks being targeted? Once the disease proved itself, partial cures were then made available to those rich enough to transfer their wealth to the healthcare industry and the focus turned to Africa. Although AIDS has failed to perform as well as Bubonic Plague in wiping out the useless eaters on that resource rich continent, it did as good a job as can be expected of a manufactured disease that was made at the very start of the genetically modified organism era. Of course, that one did backfire in that China took advantage of the civilization implosion there to buy up most of the resources, but the primary goal in the was achieved- to whit, the hippy era of free love and free thinking instantly died, and the drug culture never recovered its legitimacy. The last obstacle for unlimited government was removed as we raced to embrace a conservative political stance ( the socialist BS is just a disguise, a strawman. All points on the political spectrum embrace centralized control ). My own experience might illustrate slightly. I was born and raised in California ( but in my defense, I never bought and sold land so I wasn’t involved in immigrating to another state and helping to jack up the cost of living artificially ) and for a short period after my military service I still lived there, until I had the good sense to move elsewhere and never go back. If you smoked weed, and it was under a certain amount, the fine was $50. In practice if not legalized it was the next closest thing. I had previously dropped a lot of acid, but in US I smoked a lot of herb. Once I moved out of the state, I quit completely. All other states had much harsher penalties. And as a result, I became an uptight little asshole who started working two jobs and towed the line of an obedient serf. I’m convinced quitting drugs did that to me. California
Sure, thinking everything is a conspiracy can be dangerous to your mental health. It can also blind you to scientifically evaluating the true course of the future. But so much does indeed look like one when you ask, simply, “who benefits?”. Who benefits when college tuition and medical costs go through the roof? The central bank. They tell their tamed and trained Congresscritters to start out with The GI Bill, they finance nearly free campus construction to the states, shake, stir and wait a few generations and soon the same amount ( or fewer ) of professors teaching the same classes on that now paid for campus is even after adjusted for inflation ten or twenty times the old cost. Even with low interest rates, the banks make an insane killing on the student loans. Medical is even easier. Get the federals to pay for old bitches ( it’s for the geriatrics! ) and soon the industry has galloping inflation as everyone chases after the government payday. Who benefits when the zoning ordinances prohibit self built homes? The banks. Who benefits when a cult leader, oh, just off the top of my head let’s say Jim Jones, is apparently instructing all his zombies to drink the Grape Kool-Aid so that they can go rap with Brother Jesus one on one like? I’d like to tie it in to the banks, as they are my number one enemy ( not because they’ve screwed me other than indirectly through inflation, the government has done far worse to me, but because they are the cocksuckers in control of enslaving us all and that just pisses me off to no end ) but I really can’t- sorry. But if you’ll notice, the end of cults pretty much followed the Jonestown mass suicide. Which would be about the only reason I’d stop, sniff about a bit, cry, “Havoc!”, and suspect foul play was afoot.
What is a cult other than an attempt to create another religion or an alternate society? Okay, sure, they are pretty much a bunch of fucking fruit loops, but that isn’t the point. They are attempting to “turn on, tune out and drop out” ( I’m sure I butchered the Hippie saying, I’m a child of the 70’s, not the Flower Child generation, and my memory here is pretty much mirroring my interest which is to say marginal at best ). And as already demonstrated, if you had been paying attention, altering your mind was the purview of the Central Intelligence Agency and not up to individual discretion ( if you think the war on the Constitution is something new, I wonder how many drugs YOU took in the 60’s. You’re not the first generation to have discovered sex, or think in polar opposites of your parents ). Cults were an even greater threat than drugs, since the whole Constitution and Bill Of Rights, back when it was observed enough to not alarm the masses, unlike today when the Prez says, hey there little dudes, if you piss me off I get to arrest you and disappear you and nobody gives a flying fuck because almost every job anymore is tied to the government teet, back then there was a thing called freedom of religion. And the only reason the masses glommed on to that was because they figured if you pissed off Nixon the worse that could happen would be a baton up your head and a weekend in jail before bail, but if you pissed off the Big Kahuna you would be dunked head down in a lake of bubbling crap for all eternity in Hell. You do the math. So, the feds can’t just have The War On Religion like they have the War On Drugs ( and if you are ever naïve enough to wonder why Texas had a life sentence in jail for one marijuana joint, it was the ol “we can’t bust Capone on murder, no evidence, so we get him for tax evasion” schtick. Radicals railing against the regime then had the “disappearing” act of that era pulled on them ). How to end those pesky cults? Stage a mass suicide. Because no matter how crazy an American religious fanatic was, almost without exception ( perhaps Brown before the War Of Northern Aggression ) they aren’t crazy enough to want to meet their maker NOW. Perhaps the leaders don’t care. They’ve just had three hundred years of sex crammed into a few months and they are both too tired to care and too sated to think it matters anymore. But the rank and file of the cult certainly don’t want to die just yet. Or, as was the plan, the POTENTIAL cult members aren’t ready for that. You could argue that the apocalyptic feel of the times gave way to a sense of normalcy as the Depression of the 70’s gave way to the funny money fueled 80’s recovery ( I love Reagan, the last great president, but he had flaws and unrestrained deficits were one ). But I would disagree, stipulating that the cults ended years before the recovery began. And right on its heels came the AIDS epidemic and the ramping up of the War On Drugs. Hell, in the Seventies, the government might have used illegal drugs to create political prisoners, but the vast majority of citizens had no problem with drugs. There was no backing of Prohibition by the masses. Now, after just a few decades, a few hundred bucks reward and your best buddy next door will drop a dime on your ass. Your kid will narc on you in school ( just as good little Party loving Nazi spawn gladly informed of their parents impure thoughts regarding the official line ). Drug busts have become an economic empire all its own, and the drug trade is used as a weapon against ghetto unrest ( it brings in enough money to quiet the mobs ).
So now you perhaps understand why
was targeted. Operatives assassinated the politician that came down to investigate ( or our operatives paid local talent to do so ), which either got Jones in a mood to die his way and not at the hands of the Fascists, or the inhabitants were then killed by the same instigators. You wonder why the Johnstown fed center was bombed? Do you think there are any serious militias around anymore to organize against the anti-Constitutionalists? Look how easy the masses accepted complete federal control after the first economic hiccup. Because they had already been calmed down with the treat that any armed resistance was futile. Just smile, take your government check, move along. You want to enter another universe with drugs? We’ll throw you in jail where you die. Want to join a cult that chances your life for the better? We’ll see that you all “suicide”. Want to organize to defeat a government that did all that? We’ll make you public enemy number one, shoot your wife as she is holding your baby, or just burn your kids ( I’d wager that the Waco folks that got burned out were also a threat to cults reemerging ). Resistance is futile! Oklahoma City
So what does that leave? You quietly prepare for the end, by government action or in cahoots with corporate and banker interests as they fuck everything up. But don’t make a fuss doing it. Keep your tongue idle, and keep your wallet open as you consume your way towards apocalypse nirvana. You can’t escape reality through altering your mind, either through religion or drugs, but you are allowed to escape through shopping. If you follow these few rules, you will most likely although no guarantee be left alone and unmolested ( as long as you are not on a piece of property that the mayors butthole buddies on the XYZ Corporation want to eminent domain for ten cents on the dollar ). Of course, this is less than ideal, as you aren’t allowed to actually escape but must continue to run faster and faster on the wage wheel. Better than nothing, sure. But far from ideal. It would indeed be better if you could join together and go down to an isolated town you build in the jungle in South America, accessible only by water craft, but as has already been demonstrated, you cannot escape. In fact, listening to the puke politicians today, and you hear them proposing a law that taxes those fleeing the country ( this was actually talked about, I crap you not ), just as the German government both before and during the Nazi’s levied an exit tax on the Jews of 30%, you could almost talk yourself into leaving this hole. Not that I’d ever do it. Better the devil you know ( does not apply to wives or bosses ). Better or more ideal or less suckass, those are not available to you. The whole teetering gum and glue popsicle tower saturated in napalm was about to fall over, burst into flames and explode flaming debris into the crowd. No time to start over elsewhere. I’d been watching the news of the financial derivatives game for over five years now, since Lehman Brothers was allowed to implode. Not that you were fed the real news, you had to read between the lines. Which of course makes the whole decision making process fraught with danger. But the alternative, waking up one morning as mobs with pitchforks and torches are trashing the place because while you were glued to the cable TV which was reporting lies and running ads for American Duet Dancing With The Talented Stars and didn’t get out in time, was no better than deciding for yourself when to jump out of the perfectly good airplane.
