America's Reptilian Politics

Who will be the last puppet President of the Dinosaur era?

Progressives and Liberals are singing that same tired old song. “We must support the Democrats. We can’t let the Republicans win!” Libertarians and Conservatives are singing that same tired old song. “We must support the Republicans. We can’t let the Democrats win!”

The lesser-of-two-evils crazy train has left the station once again. Hop aboard, it’s gotten us this far.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me once every two years for my entire life, well, I guess I’m a group-thinking zombie bot too.

The unwitting divide and conquer pawns have fallen into the same old trap and are doing that partisan dinosaur dance yet again. In the process, they are sucking oxygen away from real movements for mass evolution.

Yes, there are some differences between Democrats and Republicans on the surface, in social issues and certainly in their rhetoric, but when it comes to the multi-trillion dollar heist, global Ponzi economics, foreign policy, systemic corruption… you know, all the things that are at the root of our problems, they are two heads of the same monstrous beast. One wants to shoot you in the head, the other wants to stab you in the back and let you slowly bleed to death. Heads they win, tails we lose. The dice are loaded. It’s a rigged game. Thankfully, it’s quickly coming to an end.

We are in the last days of the partisan dinosaur era, global revolution is sweeping the planet. The meteor has already hit. The global Occupy Movement was the big bang of humanity’s next phase of evolution. It gave birth to an unprecedented ecosystem of mass transformation. Occupy is the new world evolving and transforming out of the old world. Our movement is the people… it is humanity screaming out for freedom, for dignity, for sanity, for survival, for life. It is humanity evolving, transforming, metamorphosing.

Occupy is humanity’s immune system: clusters of antibodies attacking the pathogen of greed, defending humanity against a short-sighted virus, against embedded systemic corruption and pathological greed… humanities most severe disease.

Anyone paying attention knows that our old ways of living are now obsolete. Anyone paying attention knows that we live under a wholly corrupt system of rule. Anyone paying attention knows that we are on a highly unsustainable and unstable path.

That’s what the ghost of Tom Paine told me last night. He said, “Man, this is common sense.” Even my buddy T. Paine knows the score.

There is now a critical mass of aware people who understand the urgent need for revolutionary change and they are dedicating their lives to creating it.

We live in a time that necessitates mass transformation. Whether you want it or not is irrelevant. Neither political party wants to acknowledge the inevitable. In their denial to acknowledge reality, they have become obsolete, they will both be swept into the dust bin of history.

That awareness is the fertile soil that Occupy was born out of. That’s what occupiers understand and that prehistoric partisans still don’t quite grasp.

Both parties are the servants of short-sighted greed-addicted corrupt crony-capitalists. Both parties are paid off through blatant political bribery. We live under mafia rule. The iron law of oligarchy is once again rearing its head.

If this reality is too harsh for you to comprehend, if delusion keeps you feeling safe, if denial is your gig, go ahead and spend your finite energy fighting yesterday’s war. Waste your time on the partisan divide and conquer trap. Enjoy the quicksand. The old world tyrants will be thankful for your efforts to slow their fall from power.

All I want to say is what Dylan said all those years ago:

“Your old road is rapidly aging

Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand…”

The next president will be the last president of the dinosaur era.

The revolution, the evolution is on!

We know of a new world…

Viva la Occupy!

The global Occupy Movement was the big bang of humanity’s next phase of evolution.

The phony two party system must be done. It is worthless. Less than worthless. We will have our country back and the criminals that misused its citizens and resources will be sent to jail. Let the healing begin.

Most people have NO idea how deep the rabbit hole goes....the rulers behind this facade of right verses left are ruthless sycophants and they will stop at NOTHING to hold power..you are not just dealing with one or two dynasty family elites pulling strings you are dealing with a very sophisticated system of sociopaths that have normalized the mentality of psychopaths into the fabric of the system down to the news media that are in on the scam of propaganda and manipulation as means to control and subjugate and exploit..they have vested interest in keeping a population of sheep led to slaughter... you are dealing with a cultural trickle down of corporate greed normalized into society as gaming tactics deception and lies as a cultural conditioning. The abandonment of personal ethics and integrity as well as any sense of honor.... Some of us are awake but many more are still in their trance.. I even hear many left leaning people repeat the lies and false beliefs they are sold by the media system and surrounding communally reinforced narratives... yes a change is brewing..but i fear people will only suffer further till they wake up....we are running out of time and the imperialists and new fascists are tightening the legal screws.....

What makes you think that any new party would somehow be immune from the same forces of coruption that defile our current parties?

the occupy movement is a very weak front at best.
this piece sounds like a mini info mercial for occupy!
why don't you try to do real 'revolutionary things like stop paying taxes,quit your worthless job,stop voting,educate people and so on.
the occupy movement seems to be playing by the rules made by the people in charge!
you want real change,ya gotta do something that will make a difference. this aint 1967!
i honestly think most people would know how to cope if this system we live in actually broke down!
don't know how to hunt,farm,make shelter or even make fire without a lighter!!!
most people would perish because of the lack of the basic concept on how to survive.
your views are pretty idealistic, but have you ever considered the reality of living if the system came crashing down?
perhaps your next blog can be about that!
just cut the electricity in north america for 6 months,and see what happens!
