I am dead. Something significant in me has died. Words have turned from my best friends into a self-styled enemy bent on destruction of me.
I spend my time now trying to set a Guinness World Record for dancing the Hora[spelling correct] while carrying a Torah with a cat on my head.
The change is profound.
I am defiling my body with a tattoo. Perhaps a bumblebee as it is a symbol of a “B”, as in being in the moment.
I’m getting a Mohawk.
My significant other will no doubt want to murder me. Though as I am already dead, whom is she murdering?
Which leads me to my next point. In this country we are probably four presidential terms away from significant revolution and the rule of a charismatic mad man. Recall Hitler?
How do I know this? Because the part of me that died was naïve, and did not believe politicians - 85% liars and corrupt. These “officials” are worse by far than any insane mass murderer as they blithely kill so many thousand with their endless wars, and vile self-serving. They do not care about us – the less than 1%. And while the 1% flourish and try to get more and more perks, and pay less and less in taxes, the rest of us look for any sign that insanity and evil are not the primary force in government.
The part of me that is not dead believes a multitude will rise up like the greatest tsunami the world has ever seen, and led by a charismatic madman, seize control.
Let’s face it: TPTB already know everything about every one of us.
So I dance on graves, set insane records, wait and train because, how do I know I won’t be targeted as a dissident?
You see – I will not suffer it. I have my weapons and know how to use them. My escape plans are in development. I must leave the grid before the enemy overwhelms me.
You ask: Are you feeling ok? I am fine. Well. Planning. Sharpening my weapons.
