In an apologetic study, researchers have found that (just) 56 Percent of Young People Think Humanity Is Doomed.
It’s a low number to be honest, since young people will face the very worst of climate catastrophe. They will all seen first-hand the extinction of the habitable biosphere, so frankly I think that this number should be much higher. Perhaps they’re just not interested or paying attention to the news. Or perhaps the news is failing them miserably (more likely), and certainly climate science has failed to adequately warn the world.
Like the COVID-19 pandemic, the American media refuses to portray what is really happening. The stacked bodies, the choked hospitals and the thousands of dying patients. This should be nightly news, portray all the ugliness, all the evil, all the rampant stupidity and the refusals to vaccinate. Let Americans actually see first-hand what their obstinate stupidity is causing, including all the people now dying from other treatable health issue for a lack of a hospital bed or a doctor to care for them. Let us actually see it – splash this unfolding horror across the television landscape in all of its terrifying reality. Maybe then some of these rabid idiots will finally realize that this is a pandemic of stupid. Stupid people dying in huge numbers because of their stupid belief system and the incessant lies being spewed from even more stupid people.
Or maybe even this would not change any minds at all. Countless people have died now swearing that the pandemic “isn’t real” and countless more are entering hospitals at deaths edge proclaiming their “freedom” to avoid wearing a mask or receiving a free vaccine. It’s a plague of stupid unfolding in America on a massive scale.
I won’t miss the morons but I am taking my own life into my hands every time I venture out and do any shopping. I’ve been incredibly busy installing power, water systems and constructing a pump house. You need all kinds of approved parts when doing this type of project, which are increasingly harder to find because a lot of stupid people have killed themselves over refusing to get vaccinated, and they’re also killing other people because they got sick and didn’t stay home and infected countless others. Now all the hospitals are overflowing here and the nearby States are attempting to deal with the overflow of infected and dying (if there is a hospital bed). Cardiac patients and dialysis patients and all kinds of other patients are now dying because there is no medical services available to them. So stupid kills other people, again and again.
What does this have to do with the climate crisis? Everything. The same level of apathy and indifference that we are still seeing to the pandemic is infecting the climate denialists, the industrialized planet-wasters, the money-grubbing executives and business interests and the corporate monstrosities that poison the world. They only care about themselves and their own economic survival and the power and control that they exercise over everyone else. They erected a enormous apparatus to ensure that ever human on the planet was completely dependent upon their survival for their survival. They passed laws and fabricated legislation and treaties to ensue that their umbrella effect of control would encompass virtually everyone alive.
You exist precisely because they exist and provide your sustenance and everything else you need to stay alive. Without them, the vast majority of humanity would simply starve to death, so you’re forced to eat their poison-laden foods and their chosen artificial offerings that you can buy with your slave wages at the supermarket. Then you can go home to your mortgaged house and eat it while watching your televised brainwashing programs that portray all the “good” things you don’t have but now want. It’s a endless cycle of stupidity on a global scale.
Everybody is going along with this set of living arrangements and thinks this is a “normal” existence. Well, it’s not, it’s bizarre beyond belief, it’s deadly and it’s killing lots of stupid people now. If you don’t watch television you can tune into your favorite talk-radio hosts (if they’re still alive that is) and listen to them rant and rave about how vaccines are made from baby parts and how wearing a mask is an infringement upon your supposed “freedoms” and “God given rights” they’ve imagined. Lots of these guys are now dead, thankfully, ending their spew and lies to their audiences for good, but there are plenty of other ignorant morons willing to take their place in the halls of rabid idiocy. Maybe someday they too will win the Medal of Freedom from another traitorous President intent on destroying the country.
The point to all this is that even when dying, or facing climate extinction, humans remain pretty goddamned stupid. They’re unwilling to change their ways. They’re disinterested in their own survival, or the survival of anyone else. They’re mindless zombies stumbling through life seeking their next shot of endorphin through mindless “entertainment” and distractions, promoting false ideologies and hatred. Their polarized around really stupid shit that has no relevance or meaning, daily manipulated by dishonest media moguls and advertising executives, too stupid to extract themselves from this system of brainwashing and mind control. They lack critical skills and the ability to even think clearly, endlessly parrot talking points they picked up from social media platforms and anonymous sources.
What they are is goddamned stupid, so stupid that it still confounds me that some of these people are even still alive. They’re dragging down the entire weight of humanity with their asinine behavior and interference in real human progress. They go by many names that portray just how brainwashed they are. They think it’s important to belong to a tribe of like-minded idiots that believe and act like they do.
There are a couple of clowns nearby to me that are flying the “Fuck Biden” flags in the backs of their monstrous 4×4 trucks as if this personal sentiment actually means anything other then the rabid ignorance and hatred of the driver. A few others are still flying the Trump 2020 and Trump Won flags, along with bumper stickers and window stickers on their vehicles. These people are plainly stupid and in massive denial, unable to see the reality that is right in front of them. Their the same people who are not vaccinated, not wearing a mask in public places and refusing to take any precautions at all. They’re also filling up the hospitals and overwhelming all the first-line responders, doctors and nurses, and now they’re causing the deaths of other people that have medical emergencies from non-COVID conditions. This makes them complicit murderers in my book.
They’re also in the same tribal crowd of stupid fools that does not believe that humans are causing deadly climate change. They won’t read any of the science, don’t understand the tiny bits that is being pre-digested for them by some idiotic talking head, and refuse to acknowledge that things are changing for the worst very quickly now, even when their houses are being blown away, burned down or flooded out. They are part of the plague of stupid that has poisoned this country and even much of the world, bringing everything to a standstill. There are now millions of unfilled positions and vacancies for these wage-slaves who have either refused to return to work or are now dead. Desperate employers are offering all kinds of incentives and bonuses for anyone that will show up, but so far, that’s not worked out.
You’re goddamned right humanity is doomed. It’s self-destructing because of stupid fucking people embracing stupid fucking ideologies and endless lies. It’s been going on for a long, long time, but now it’s been weaponized and unleashed upon the world by the public at large and fanned into a raging inferno by corrupt politicians. We’ve always seen stupid ideologies launch pointless wars and engage in genocide, polluting and poison the planet, raping the very guts out of the Earth for endless human greed and profits, but now we’re seeing masses of humanity engaging in stupid ideologies and self-destructive behavior killing other people. It’s all culminating in a clash of survival and despair for all us.
Young people should be scared out of their fucking minds to be honest. Stop apologizing for this. This was inevitable. They should be absolutely terrified at what is happening. But they should also be doing everything they can to learn what they need to know and to take actions to help themselves, because it is brutally obvious that the so-called “adults” around them are too goddamned stupid to do it for even themselves. Humanity has abandoned the next generation in a selfish explosion of ignorance and escalating stupidity. Parents are literally destroying their chances for their own children’s survival. Grandparents are too distracted and far too greedy to care. Driving all this is the money-changers and big business that is capitalizing on the endless greed and voracious appetites they’ve cultivated over decades and generations. Complicit media and dishonest government and corrupt politicians all piled on top of this sordid mess that some call ‘society’ and ‘civilization’, but I call it a endless disaster and a dystopian nightmare.
I do not have words of comfort because that would be lying which apparently, everybody else is quite willing to do. There is nothing to look forward to except something worse, because humanity is infected with a disease of endless stupidity and greed, selfish actions and poisonous ideologies. The whole of humanity is being drowned in a sea of stupidity and selfishness, killing millions, faster and faster. We are witnessing the end of civilization, those of us that may survive this temporarily are in shock at how fast this is unfolding. Governments are paralyzed unable to act without offending their corporate masters. Astute observers are watching in daily horror as the crisis escalates non-stop.
Young people are should be terrified – we’ve abandoned them. They’re surrounded by an endless army of complete morons engaging in some truly stupid behaviors and rituals and they know it. They’re not blind to our insanity. I can’t apologize for the terribly bad behavior of the world or the people within it, I can only document the fact that I am keenly aware of it. It won’t do any good. As always, you are on your own and the longer you stay within this mindset of pretending that everything is going to be ok, the more you will contribute to the ongoing insanity. Everything is most definitely NOT going to be ok. We will never be “ok” again, it’s too late for that.
