A war is not coming. It is here. It is here now.

The billionaires and the fascists are making their move and they do not intend to lose. They intend to destroy us.

Read the beginning of the The Testaments by Margaret Atwood which I think pretty much describes how they think it will go down.

2. The billionaires think they can control the fascists.

They think they can use the fascists for tax cuts and less regulation and things won’t go too far.

5. Once upon a time the billionaires of that time thought they were in charge pulling the strings...

 

How wrong they were with Adolf Hitler. The cycle of history never ends apparently.

4. "The empire never ended"

- Philip K. Dick

The concept of the modern nation/state was concocted as a conspiracy between the Royals and the wealthy merchant classes, unleashing an interminable series of turf wars that continues to this very day.

This is nothing new. Just the latest chapter in the ongoing "Fool's Journey" of the individual soul wrenching freedom and personal autonomy from the grips of the greedy and corrupt --i.e. the "Magicians".

Eons of individual want and deprivation are psychologically difficult genetic "imprints" to overcome. Humanity's "adolescent phase" appears to have started with the pyramid builders and currently is ending with, perhaps the billionaire rocketeers. A point of mass indulgence prior to starting to collectively begin "putting away childish things" (worshipping excess).

"Fire all of your guns at once | And explode into space" --Steppenwolf

Crowley termed this phase as "The New Aeon", or a sort of "Horus Child" era, with lots of "babies" exercising with enormous powers, but little control. "Chapel Perilous", as Robert Anton Wilson, and Timothy Leary suggested, in their book The Game of Life.

Hopefully, as many of us as possible will survive this anxious transformational "Dawn of the Anthropocene", and the emerging of the Noosphere, as Teilhard de Chardin, and others surmised --i.e. the dawning of planetary self-awareness.

Well, thinking this way gives me some hope.. and I'm not even stoned anymore! Thanks, Mr. Zappa!

6. American was not won

because we defended the airports!

Truth be told, We won by ambush tactics. Yep, we were snipers and hidden warriors.

It wasn't the big battles, but the constant harassment of the Redcoats.

I only have a pistol, but I also studied history!

This sucks!

I hate to tell you. It all came together in 1980 - for them!
