The Horror Show

Two short articles I’ll ask you to read: People in Hong Kong are moving into 20-square-foot ‘coffin homes’ to save money

Also read this: Elon Musk doubles down on universal basic income: ‘It’s going to be necessary’

The future revealed. Unchecked growth, overpopulation and dwindling resources (same as now, just worse).

If any of us are alive in twenty years, you could expect to be living as a refugee. Perhaps you’ll have a monthly stipend to ‘support’ you, but probably not. Most likely, you’ll be living in crowded encampments where crime, disease, hunger and competition for basic resources will be a daily fight for survival. There’s going to be a lot of dead bodies lying around.

The future isn’t going to be better. It’s going to be much, much worse – precisely because we are unable to restrain ourselves.

If you pay close attention here, you will see this unrestrained appetite everywhere you look. You’ll also notice a corresponding decline in basic human rights, freedom, space and opportunity too.

What happened in Hong Kong will happen here in our crowded cities.

I can’t even imagine this kind of existence, which it isn’t. No life of your own, not even a pretense of personal privacy or hardly a pot to piss in. A nearly unimaginable horror already being realized, and yet… nothing is going to avoid this for millions of people, unless civilization itself manages to collapse.

If you want to know the future – just look now. The species isn’t going to change its ways. Innovation just means more, faster and faster with humans, animals, spaces and life itself being pushed aside to make ‘room’ for the golden future the technologist, industrialist and business interests rape, plunder and pillage whatever is still left.

It’s a horror show.

And you’re living it.


I need to give up on the ‘survival’ meme, the idea that people are going to take interest in their own personal preparations. They’re not.

I also need to give up on the hope that people will finally come around to the extreme danger they are already in. They won’t.

Other things I need to give up:

That people will stop doing what they are told.

That they will learn to think for themselves.

That they will hold those who speak untruths accountable.

It’s 2017 and quite frankly, I’m not enjoying the show anymore. This theater of the absurd is filled with idiots and morons, liars and thieves, indifferent and apathetic zombies devouring all the popcorn, soda, candy and hot dogs they can find, poisoning their brains and tossing their trash everywhere, while wildly cheering the on-screen ‘hero’ for more bad acting and a poorly written script. It’s yet another rerun which we’ve all seen before. Nothing changes, it just keeps getting worse and worse.

No, I am not depressed. Just disgusted.

It’s always a horror show, it’s the only show in town no matter where you live.
