Derailed Doomsayer

… As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.  Do you see a man who is wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him …
— Ancient Hebrew Proverb

… Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools …
— Ancient Christian quote

Most of the time I am reasonably stable, then the runaway world trains derails and starts careening down the streets wreaking havoc wherever it goes. It derails me too. I turn into a raving prophet of doom.  So here is todays doomsaying: 

When you hear people in strife torn cities crying “DEFUND THE POLICE!”, you know anarchy reins.

When you see the seething rage of a political class that cannot accept a free and fair election, you know that rational governance is gone.

When you see ‘science’ politicized as it has been in environmental studies, you know wisdom has vanished

And when a pandemic turns out to not be a pandemic and people still don’t believe it, you realize people are stupid to the roots.

 The USA was a grand experiment to see if people could govern themselves.
All the indications that I see prove they can’t wield that measure of awesome power. They will ask for and will certainly be provided a strong man who can do things for their own good. They aren’t going to like the results of that decision, however, but given that they squandered their heritage it is difficult for me to care.

This latest round of insanity by the political class, the press, and a few aggrieved minorities has me cynical.  People en masse are stupid. There is no other way to see it. Give them to a strong man who will suck what little they own and use it for himself. Their daughters, their sons, their land. It is what they demand.

To the wise, I caution you to encircle your family. Become invisible among the roaring masses. This is not a time to be casting pearls. We will not return to sanity, and should the Lord tarry, misery will reign. This is not a time of rejoicing.

        LOL! I have already had a few Herodias in my life, and ever a couple of Salome’s … wisdom seldom comes in a way you can take pride in it.

    Same ol’, same ol’ over there but at least the people that are left, are getting along. All talk is more or less on the pandemic, the protesting, racism, etc.

    I’m glad you’re doing well. Battling that darn heat & humidity here in Louisiana. I wanna say I’m ready for fall weather! 😳 You take care and be safe!

    “There is no other way to see it.” I wish I could disagree with that. I wish I could disagree with all of this, but I can’t. I just hope I have time to close my circle.
