"What have we achieved in mowing down mountain ranges, harnessing the energy of mighty rivers, or moving whole populations about like chess pieces, if we ourselves remain the same restless, miserable, frustrated creatures we were before?"Henry Miller
The economic news this morning was a bit to the grim side.
There is no recovery.
To call it the result of policy errors is probably overly-generous. It is the result of a careless selfishness and greed that have found deep roots in our hearts.
We do have a generous surplus of well-crafted lies, spun with great effort by shills and sociopaths. They are never more loud or more evident than around the watering holes of money and power.
We are a ship of fools. And a generation of madder and even more self-deceiving Ahabs are in the wheelhouse, hell bent on their own destruction, heading full speed in the night through uncharted waters.
It would be better for them if they had never been born.
Lord have mercy on us.
Have a pleasant evening.
