If I might be allowed to paraphrase Moz: This joke isn’t funny anymore.
Here in the Southern Archonic Protectorate days after the five year anniversary of the last great burnening of the Victorian countrycide, it happened again. 200 separate fires. A state under siege. Vast swathes of flames, and spot fires inside city lines and eating at its bush edges. Power stations under threat, coal mines ablaze and supply lines in danger, and the solution? Literally, praying for rain.
Welcome to the End Days of Industrial Civilization.
The Coming Collapse. Mass Deaths.
The Neoliberal Project. The thirty plus year program to hollow out the governments of the West. Democracies occupied by forces that can only view every thing through the lens of the Market.
The wilful ignorance of the Leaders to acknowledge the unmistakeable signs of Climate Chaos. The only acts of the Security Forces being to monitor, infiltrate, harass and disrupt any groups that sought to prevent and/or raise awareness of the threats posed by Heavy Weather and Ecological Apocalypse. Cause that’s bad for Business, and the Empire doesn’t like that. Instead we have those “in control” getting what’s not rightfully theirs and getting out. Breaking Away.
Now, I’m not saying that ANYONE THAT CONTINUES TO SPEAK IN THE MEDIA OF “TEH_ECONOMY UBER ALLES” IS AN AGENT OF THE ARCHONS AND SHOULD BE ARRESTED BY VANGUARDS OF SUPER-EMPOWERED, HOPEFUL-INDIVIDUALS FOR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY, THE PLANET AND THE FUTURE.
Sowing fear with talk of the Jobless Recovery, when it’s clear the greatest Work Project ever exists in building and reconstructing communities and environments to face the very real challenges of staying alive on the third planet from the Sun during an immature anthropocene.
This is not how the world ends. This is the turbulence of a civilisation in phase shift. And the galaxy awaits the survivors. We’ll give our new neighbours tours of our now ruined twenty-first century metropolises, after they emerge from the Stargate inside Saturn’s Hexagon.
