A Seat For the Spectacle

Some of the people who lived at the time of the end of the Roman empire probably relished having a seat for the spectacle. I think we are in a similar time. Global civilisation is winding up. We are turning the earth into a wasteland whipped on to ever faster extinction by Republican/corporate ideology. I will be one of the last people to see a verdant earth. Blue Gold, World Water Wars I could hardly think of anyone I would less like running my country that Stephen Harper, (perhaps Luka Rocco Magnotta or Dick Cheney). Harper is intent on destroying the earth and he has the means to do it — simply by selling/burning all of Canada’s fossil fuels turning them into greenhouse gases. He is an extremely evil bastard and he will most likely get his way. I will continue to try to foil him simply because I would feel more ashamed for giving up than for failing to defeat him. And of course, you never know. I have been successful before even when I thought the odds were 1,000,000 to 1 against me.
