This post started as a pondering of conspiracy theories. As we all know, conspiracy theories are broken. So many of them have been proven true, that now all we can do is come up with new ones. And frankly, we’re hitting the realm of truly bizarre and strange ones.
I mean, unless I miss my guess our own government is desperately trying to sell us on UFOs. This wouldn’t be that bad if the current government weren’t democrat (and the deep government always is.) They never have interesting, scientific aliens. Instead they have woo woo aliens, here to sell us on the latest democrat fad and astral projection too. (Why must it always be astral projection?)
From there, I jumped, in the way my mind works (“works”) to the fact that the current bullshit being pushed on us seems tailor made to keep us stuck on Earth, and maybe to make us devolve to a pre-technological level. So, if there are actually superior species, they have agents here working overtime to make sure those pesky humans don’t make it to space and disrupt their great star empire or something.
Now, of course, rationally, I don’t believe that’s true. However, I have a bad track record with conspiracies. I can only see them when they’re obvious such as potemkin campaign = they already have rigged it to win the election, no matter how we vote. And even then I only saw that because I had seen the MASSIVE amounts of fraud in 2016 in a right-leaning area at that (and the fraud was all left.)
So, you know, I don’t believe it. I believe it’s a case of ESR’s lizard people not real lizard people. More on that later. But anyway, I wouldn’t even be surprised. Simply because the facts are so damning.
Look, everything pushed as enlightened or the way of the future since the early 20th century is not only — often — bizarrely stupid, but it seems designed to destroy humanity as a whole.
Let’s see: population must be reduced; we must go back to living “simpler” (reading shorter, more inconvenient lives); women must have careers (not can have, must have) and not raise their own kids; nationalism bad; people must fit into this mold, and can have no individual thought…. and on and on. All of it leads to mass death, destruction and horror.
Weirdly — or not — from the early twentieth century on, most of the big programs, which — with exceptions — both sides of the isle agreed on have been florid disasters. From welfare to subsidies for higher education, to — well, all of it. It consumes more and more tax dollars, and the returns on it are actually negative.
And meanwhile the increase in tax dollars sucked women into the work force making families dysfunctional and cratering the birth rate. (I have nothing against women working. Obviously. But this being the default mode for families with kids is a bizarre “choice”. And as we keep finding out, not a particularly functional one.
Even the things we can all agree on, like racial integration or giving women a shot at jobs got distorted by the top down insane bullshit of quotas and “affirmative action” and actually slowed down the integration already happening and made women…. weird.
And all these governmental rules and theories have now become detrimental and civilization unmaking, or what a friend calls “a war on things that work” now going to a war on the production of food humans actually thrive on.
Of course, I don’t think it’s the lizard people. I think it’s two twin factors. Since the early 20th century we’ve passed the horizon of need. I.e. any famines occurring are engineered famines, created mostly by governments. And at the same time, not coincidentally, knowledge and innovation are accellerating.
I think people in power can’t deal with that. They need to be needed, they need control. And most of them can’t cope with changing technology. Or changing ideas.
They locked into the bizarre Marx-adjacent idea that humans are liabilities, not resources, and the even more bizarre romantic idea that humans by existing HURT nature (because we’re robots or something.) And with those twin principles, how could they avoid hurting people and taking their stuff.
Note that there have been glimmers of hope, when someone dares push back on government’s war on people.
Note also that it’s not all government. It’s 20th century “technocratic” the experts know better government.
Look…. We can’t afford it. They aren’t aliens making war on us, sure. But if they were, what would be different?
We can no longer afford this insanity. In the last two years they’ve proven they’ll destroy civilization and humanity if given half a chance.
Well, we can’t give them half a chance.
Let’s go back to a government when individual right have primacy and I don’t care how many degrees you have, you can’t tell me how to live my life.
Let’s call the technocratic bullshit off. Now. Yesterday. Before they kill us all.
