A billion dollars spent in Toronto, just so our “leaders” can tell us we need to spend less. Fallout from the oil spill now killing crops and causing at least one suicide so far. Cellphone towers are soon coming to coexist with you in your home. And the White House wants to help you “blog anonymously” by gathering all your personal data.
It is in our nature to be social, but this natural drive has been corrupted to a point where, in order to exist peacefully in a group, you have to suppress your unique individuality or be shunned. People follow leaders blindly towards the cliff edge, rarely questioning where they are going and why. Why do we continue to behave this way?
Technology and the Internet are double-edge swords. We all live in a sea of radiation, the danger of which has not yet completely manifested in the public’s health.

Futurists talk reverentially about the “Singularity”. Cybernetic immortality masks ancient eugenic aspirations. New cloud formations are appearing in the skies, but scientists don’t seem to know why. Is it really our fault? The economy continues to slide down slowly as money and jobs disappear and college students are being advised to “shoot lower” than before. Honor killings reveal that the caste system is alive and well in India, but there is more to the story than meets the eye.
Individual human beings are being interconnected like circuits on a board and no one seems to mind. Collective social behavior is sweeping across the world like a contagious disease, making life difficult for those with individualistic tendencies. But who cares, right? In a democracy, the majority rules, even if the majority is wrong.
The old “normals” are breaking badly all around us, but most people haven’t even noticed. Privacy is an antiquated notion, being “social” is the new devotion. Karma has no power when everyone is self-involved. There are no consequences to your actions, so the Kabbalah has resolved. TV shows us the future, if you’re willing to believe, or rather perceive.
