Those are your choices in the next election. As far as the effect either one will have on your life & livelihood, it will be the same either way. It’s already been determined, by and large — your fate. It’s baked in the cake, so to speak. So, you can choose to laugh or cry, but don’t be so naive as to believe you can choose your fate since it’s already been chosen for you.
I’m making significant progress on True Crime, Inc.. The About the Author section and the Preface have been completed and I’m moving on to Chapter 1: The World’s Oldest Profession this week. This book is going to contain some excellent, thought-provoking material. Some of the chapters, aside from the one I just mentioned, are as follows:
- Alternate Reality Games (ARG)
- Simulacra & The Simulacrum
- Unsocial Media
- Hot Evil vs Cold Evil
- Millenials, Narcissim & Psychopathology
- The Perfect Storm
- The Gamers’ Playground
- Everything, Inc.
- Can LE Keep Up?
- Where are the Criminologists & Academia?
- Trolls R Us
That’s a loose, dynamic list for now. It’s subject to change as I drill to the heart of the matter. Here’s a taste of the Preface for your edification.
And that’s just it. What seems unfathomable now isn’t unfathomable in the future, and what was unfathomable in the past is now not only fathomable, but actually quite normal and commonplace. Reread Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, or read it for the first time, and tell me Ray wasn’t precociously prescient. So much of the dystopian scene & setting in that excellent classic is actual reality today. All Bradbury was doing was connecting the dots of the trend curve he was observing when he wrote that book in 1953. For example, a pill to quell and/or inculcate any impulse — pills that can effectively tune you in or tune you out with a bevy of side effects that require yet more pills. Twenty lane superhighways with non-stop traffic 24/7. Walls that serve as television — we’re almost there. Before you know it, paint will be embedded with LCD crystals so your walls can become animated with mind-controlling & mind-numbing propaganda in perpetuity. We’re so close to it, you can practically touch it. The burning of books has happened in one form or another and now, more than ever before, I, and you too, can walk in Guy Montag’s shoes. To know, as he did, is more a curse than a blessing, and ignorance is bliss when there’s no personal accountability for the implications of it.
You don’t have to burn books when you can instead flood the market with a tsunami of vapid, vacuous and vain compilations disguised and sold as literature. It’s increasingly difficult to find one with any substance or originality any longer. It has the same effect as having no books at all. Too much of nothing is nothing. Biographies of VIPs have become all the rage, for example. They’re ubiquitous. The increasingly mindless line up to get their autographed copies. The Masses, those who still read, gobble this trash up. Many of these Vanity Fairs are miraculously & inexplicably Best Sellers, whilst excellently written books with True Substance that challenge you to think go unnoticed & unread.
What must have seemed unfathomable in 1953 to most people, is now our reality. In 2016, sixty three years after Bradbury wrote his book that was an extrapolation of current trends at that time, we are living Fahrenheit 451 and many of us don’t even realize it. That’s precisely the point & message of True Crime, Inc.. It’s happening now. It’s a process. It’s fomenting. It’s gathering momentum and only a handful of extremely vigilant & observant individuals can see it for what it is and report on it. Will anyone listen or take heed? Probably not. They didn’t with Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, so I don’t have a lot of confidence they will with True Crime, Inc.. But this book must be written and this message disseminated for posterity’s sake, if for no other reason.
In the meantime, enjoy some election coverage I’m providing below. Remember, I am not politically ideological, so I don’t care who “wins” the election for POTUS. They’re both a big fucking joke. If you think either are legitimate, you’re a braindead joke. My vote is for HAL 9000 for POTUS, and if we can’t have HAL, then an eggplant will suffice. Either will be a vast improvement compared to the Bobbleheads The Establishment serves up to us as our “choices” every four years.
The following are images of a naked Donald Trump some Yahoo crafted. I suppose it’s a form of irreverent art. The creator refers to the mannequin as The Emperor Has No Balls. It is pretty funny, I have to admit. However, imagine the reaction of The Press if this was done to Obama? Somehow, no doubt, the creator of something similar directed at Obama would be labeled racist. The beauty of being the first “Black” POTUS. If anyone criticizes him, they’re racist — automatically, even though BHO isn’t Black, or at least not Black by my standards. Hell, he’s more White than me, if you can believe that.
And here’s an excellent documentary underscoring what frauds The Clintons are. They say & preach one thing, and do the exact opposite. So clever & cunning. They take you all for a bunch of Rubes just as The Donald does. How anyone can zealously support either of these Freaks is beyond me. You simply have no intellect whatsoever if you think, first, your vote matters, and second, even if it did matter you believe one of these two is a viable option to “lead” America. It’s an absurd notion to think either one could “lead” something as complex as America. The most they could ever be is a face for The Beast, but not much else. And regardless of which one ascends to The Throne come November, what an ugly face it will be. I suppose that’s appropriate considering The Nature of the Beast to which the face is applied.
