The Trend That Will Shake the Nation

"Hubris calls for nemesis, and in one form or another it's going to get it, not as a punishment from outside but as the completion of a pattern already started."

Mary Midgley

"Human rights are not only violated by terrorism, repression or assassination, but also by unfair economic structures that create huge inequalities.

We have perfected our weapons, our conscience has fallen asleep, and we have sharpened our ideas to justify ourselves as if it were normal that we continue to sow destruction, pain, and death."

Pope Francis I

It is a very perverse view of life that fundamental necessities like healthcare are being portrayed as a discretionary purchase that people make because they 'like it.'

Oh yes, I am enjoying having Multiple Sclerosis, or cancer, or some other chronic illness because it allows me to go out and spend money I don't have on overpriced drugs protected by government sanctions from corporate monopolies.  And the fact that I am unfortunate is all my fault because I am obviously a life unworthy of life.

And endless war in support of the formation and maintenance of some vast global order that the imperial state controls is a necessity whose enormously extravagant costs must never be questioned.

This attack on the fundamentals of human existence is being supported by propaganda campaigns and corruption of thought and basic decency not all that dissimilar from the same sort of trash that early on formed the basis for those actions that we have rightly condemned as crimes against human life in the past century.

How blinded to the consequences of our actions are we are becoming.

What other basic necessities of life will the anti-humans continue to price out of reach, using their power and influence in order to feed a mania to bring more and more of the public to its knees in service to their debt and desire for basic survival?

Look for the public to start looking farther afield to find alternatives as the Republicans and the Democrats continue to abandon them in their service to Big Money.

The greatest things in Nature start slowly and quietly, but continue to gather force until they overwhelm the works of men.  

This is nemesis, the the inescapable agent of the downfall of an over-reaching arrogance driven by an obsession to be as gods, and have the power of life and death.
