The Myth of Human Progress and the Collapse of Complex Societies

Hedges, all fired up:


Listen to the words. The anger, resentment, disgust, rage and loathing.

Oh wait, I’m supposed to be talking about Hedges and his speech. Well, he’s in a growing company of Americans that really have had enough of this shit.

I covered the collapse of complex societies years ago – and have patiently waited (at times) for this one too, to collapse.

This blog entry was written so long ago, that I am no longer sure there will be possibility of human survival, The Inevitability of Collapse.

And a bit more recent, The Problem with Industrialized Civilization. There are dozens and dozens more article like this on the blog.

The revolution hasn’t started. Not yet.


I’ve been busy trying to become something I’m obviously not. A Google slave. Google, in its infinite and inscrutable mighty wisdom, has demanded that all websites comply with its ever changing demands for site ranking. If you don’t comply, you die. End of story.

This may sound and seem simple – but it is not. It has become infinitely complex and time wasting. The amount of knowledge you really need to understand analytics, SEO, the myriad of tracking tools, tagging tools, scripts, structured data and more things than I can even remember now is absolutely gargantuan. And it never, ever stops as new features, tools, requirements, codes, languages and scripts are being rolled out all of the time.

What once worked – doesn’t anymore, and you’re forced to spend countless hours tweaking, coding, changing and modifying while also learning all the new tools, tips, tricks and techniques that must be understood and deployed – otherwise, you’re dead.

If you don’t engage in this, dedicating literally years of your life away – you become irrelevant rather quickly. The Google Gods have spoken. Thou Shalt Participate Wherever Thou Art Told.

Truth be told, I did die – a long time ago. I’ve been trying to survive on my fading hopium ever since. But despite what must now be thousands of hours of sincere, dedicated efforts, I have failed. It’s one of the reason I killed off this blog. I’m literally “trying everything I can think of” to find a way to restore an income. Nothing has worked. So if this blog disappears again, it’s not my fault for lack of trying.

    Speaking of Google, they just fired an employee for exercising free speech. Apparently, he disagreed with their diversity policy and defended his views with science.

    There are multiple YouTube videos about it, all easily accessible. For now.

    “Don’t be evil.”

    More about Google.

    Yes, you guessed it: they have forgotten to not be evil:

    Google Is Committed To The Suppression Of Free Speech:

    Some statistical facts from the article:

    “Writing in Global Research, Graham Vanbergen lists 13 websites arbitrarily branded by Google as fake news or conspiracy sites whose readership Google has managed to reduce between 19 and 67 percent:

    * fell by 67 percent
    * fell by 63 percent
    * fell by 62 percent
    * fell by 47 percent
    * fell by 47 percent
    * fell by 42 percent
    * fell by 37 percent
    * fell by 36 percent
    * fell by 36 percent
    * fell by 30 percent
    * fell by 25 percent
    * fell by 21 percent
    * fell by 19 percent

    “It is completely obvious that none of these sites are fake news or conspiracy sites. These sites are under Google censorship because they question the official lies that are used to control the explanations given to the people. With the print and TV media and NPR under its control, the ruling oligarchy is now moving to shut down all Internet explanation that differs from the official lies that are used to keep people firmly locked in The Matrix.”

    The golden age of the internet is over. The younger, emerging generations will find it progressively more difficult to liberate their minds. (Then again, I used books, but still….)
