Doomsday, really?

There are three million millionaires in the USA that do not pay taxes because their assets are registered in tax paradise “countries” around the globe, many have another citizenship, a great prove of patriotism, no doubts about it.

There are also three million doomsday preppers, they have even a convention, a TV series in NatGeo, websites, facebook and social media pages and a whole industry that provides them with all what they need, costly, ridiculously fashioned and very successful but …..what is a doomsday prepper? A doomsday prepper is a guy, working alone, with friends, with his family, that believes de-facto that in case of a catastrophe the federal/state government will not help him/them to survive any life threatment situation, it can be an earthquake, a cyclone, a hurricane, a tsunami, a nuclear plant explossion, economic crisis, a war of any kind, bio threats, nuclear attacks from other countries, terrorism, comets, asteroids, solar flares, magnetic fields, gamma rays and whatever you can put into your imagination.

The rule of thumb is that you need a supply of food, water, energy, a bunker, hundreds of guns and ammunition (easily there) and training to stop any of their hungry citizens that did not prepare for that, to invade your space to take advantage of what you did to protect your family.

My conclusion is simple, there are out there at least six million guys who do not care about their country, government, society, institutions, marines, armed forces, FBI, CIA, NSA, DEA, fellow citizens, for them God Bless America and The Land of the Free are just a songs they sing on baseball games, the only important people are them!

Global warming, a lost war?

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-03-14/february-smashed-all-time-global-heat-record/724635

Are we loosing the the war against global warming?, yes…. ignorance, apathy and personal interests are winning.

The 6th mass extinction began with the last ice age and now it’s being catalyzed by man on a geometric progression. Honest scientists agree with the evidence so far. Dishonest scientists (there are a bunch who sold their soul to the devil), politicians and big economic powers deny the truth because they can not see beyond their own generation, do not want to see, do not care beyond that. Ignorance and stupidity of the people (who associate dinosaurs to cavemen) help them a lot with their behavior. The results are obvious, when the conveyor belt that regulates the temperature on far north and south of the globe will really slow down, we will have a new ice age, now with 8 to 10 billion people instead of the few millions of 10.000 years ago, with depleted resources of all kind, famine, lack of water, deserted oceans and more. Apocalyptic, yes it is,  but the scientific evidence so far and the projection based on it shows no bright future. How many honest people in the world know about this? Is there a future? Emissions control right now is like a band aid put on a terminal ill patient and since advertising controls the mind of the week, there is no doubt about what will happen.

The Neon Gods we made

Since Anthropologists and Archeologists started digging in our past as a species and we passed the bridge between oral transmission and written messages/drawings depicting the “human life”, we learned many things that we might consider were product of ignorance, fear, misunderstanding about Nature, life itself, life after death. I’ve asked myself many times if we have changed, then I remember a verse from the 1966 song of S&G (the sound of silence)… “and the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they made” and I realize that we have not changed a bit. There is not much of a difference when comparing with our ancestors, now we bow and pray to the “gods of technology”, the “gods of the show business”, the gods of The political world”, the “gods of economy power” and the very same “gods of war”. How could one explain the act of sleeping on the streets to buy the new Iphone, bargains from a store, petrol on sale and lots of more behaviors that Einstein perfectly qualified as: man’s stupidity is infinitum!
