There are three types of people…
Those who see
Those who see when shown
Those who do not see

Well no poop most do not want to know, and why would you. Waking up to all our current problems can give you a bad day. A simple analogy I will use is this; it’s like the equivalent of taking your new car to a mechanic for a simple oil change only to find out the brakes are shot, the transmission is toast, the motor is on its last legs, the radiator is blown and you need new tires. Yeah I know bad day. Everything looks good on the outside, or as you may have heard, before. It looks good from far, but its far from good.
Now sticking with the car and the mechanic analogy there are two options. Option one, ignore the mechanic, the professional advice and leave with your car forgetting all the problems and go back to thinking everything is fine. After all ignorance is bliss, but it’s still ignorant. This will get you on your way quickly and you can forget the warnings, but the inevitable will eventually happen. Sooner or later you will be left in the future stranded on the side of the road waiting for help. Option two, listen to the mechanic, the one who has been paying attention and in this case, the one who is giving free advice in hopes that you will never be left stranded not knowing what to do.
Now I am not saying I have all the answers or any answers for that matter… But, I will tell you this with confidence. I have been paying close attention to what is going down. If you are looking for easy answers… Haha I don’t mean to laugh, but there are none.
Now what does one do when faced with a bad situation?
Well unfortunately, or fortunately depending on the moment in time, I have been in a few bad situations myself and speaking from my experience. Let’s talk about what works and what doesn’t, now I have had both of the following, so I know. First, a bad attitude. This will get us no where and only complicate the situation more. A bad attitude is often associated with fear and anger, both of which emotions the system prefers you have to keep you suppressed. The second is a positive attitude, which is what I strive to maintain these days. I have been called a paranoid doomer lots, and am past the point of having that bother me. You see calling a spade as spade is not about being a doomer, its about noticing a problem and looking for a solution.
I know what we face is not going to be easy, but denial only kicks the can a little further down the road while the problems only grow larger, and more eccentric, thus making them harder to manage in the future. How many times have you heard after someone comes down with a life threatening illness. ‘If they only went to the doctor sooner or had regular check ups things would have been ok’. Well it’s been too long since society has had a family doctor and a regular check up. It might not be a nice thought, but by catching the cancer before it spreads will dramatically increase our chance for survival.
I know its a lot, and I know its heavy, but we have to step up to the plate and deal with the situation at hand. Collectively we can deal with this mess and that is the machines biggest fear (see glossary) we don’t need to be a slave to a system that is designed to suppress and imprison us, we just think we do. We are in fact constructing our own prison. Practise critical thinking and learn to question things you are told not to question.
I know it will bring about some uncomfortable feelings… But there are much more uncomfortable things planned for us if we ignore the symptoms and put or heads back in the sand
I didn’t start this blog because I wanted to… I started this blog because talking about this is the right thing to do
