Things have been unreasonably quiet around here at Didactic Mind for entirely mundane reasons – namely, yer very ‘eavy, very ‘umble servant has been run off ‘is feet with work and other things. You know things are busy for me when I’m literally too tired to post up the usual Friday T&A entry on a Friday night. But, I have not been completely ignorant of world events, which have unfolded at a rapid pace. And few big events have unfolded more rapidly than the release of the so-called “Twitter Files”.
It is impossible to escape the conclusion that we live somewhere between two very different worlds, which constantly threaten to collide and destroy each other, with the rest of us caught in the middle. In one world, the Twitter Files reveal the extraordinary power that Big Tech has over us, and the extraordinary degree of collusion between the SJWs that control those platforms, and the globalists who control Western governments. In the other world, though, these files reveal nothing interesting and can be safely ignored – and that is the world inhabited by those same globalists.
For me, the most depressing aspect of the Twitter Files release has to do with the reality that tens of millions of Americans still rely on Big Tech and Big Media to do their thinking for them, and that hundreds of millions of Americans have simply checked out of the political process completely. I have zero respect for democracy – I call it “dumbocracy” for a reason – and the Twatter episode shows us all exactly why. There can be no respect for the concept of democracy when people do not take the time to educate themselves about the power of the sovereign franchise, and all that it implies.
Since people do not have any incentive or desire to match their nearly unlimited authority, given the sovereign franchise, with any sense of moral responsibility, we get endless reruns of the same old show. Progressives do tremendous damage to the moral foundations of the Western world, and “conservatives” bleat and rage about how they will fix things when they come to power – but never, ever do.
The Twitter Files simply tell us this state of affairs will continue until serious, socially destructive, and extraordinarily violent events force a hard reset of the situation.
For this trend is unsustainable. If a hundred million Americans refuse to vote, because they feel like their vote does not count – and it does not, make no mistake about that – then government loses its moral legitimacy and authority, and that is exactly when Very Bad Things start to happen in a very big hurry. We are not far from that tipping point now – which I have been yelling and screaming about for YEARS, as have others like me.
This brings us neatly to the election of His Most Illustrious, Noble, August, Benevolent, and Legendary Celestial Majesty, the God-Emperor of Mankind, Donaldus Triumphus Magnus Astra, the First of His Name, the Lion of Midnight, may the Lord bless him and preserve him, in 2016.
The God-Emperor was a bumbling, bloviating, uncouth, intemperate loudmouth. He was also the greatest President since Andrew Jackson – who nonetheless failed to accomplish even a tenth of what he should have done, given his original aims and platform. He was undone at every turn by his own hubris, his inability to pick really effective and capable advisers, and his far too trusting faith in people who betrayed him and his populist agenda at every turn.
Trump represented – and still represents – an existential threat to the globalist order. They tried to stop him with everything in their power, as the Twitter Files show us very clearly. They thought they had succeeded in containing the handful of mercury fulminate they thought he represented – but, in reality, that explosive substance has seeped into the countryside. It is dispersed and diluted, but by no means contained.
The major question is, what, if anything, are the people of the West going to do about it? The answer, at the moment, appears to be: “not much of anything”. And the reason for this is because most people in the West, not just in America, have checked out of the political process as well.
They know damned well their politicians hate them and want them to be destroyed, but they are still just comfortable and warm and happy enough to ignore it. That will not last much longer, in my view, given the speed at which Europe is deindustrialising and falling apart. Massive protests in the streets of Germany, Czechia, and France have been successfully ignored by the political leaders, FOR NOW, but how much longer will that be the case when winter truly bites and people freeze and starve to death? And that is before we come to the realities of NEXT winter, which will be FAR worse.
In short, the global political order is falling apart. We are approaching a culminating point that will see, in my view, first the EU and then the US collapse completely. Our Beloved and Dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH), Voxemort the Most Malevolent and Terrible, has repeatedly predicted the collapse of the US by 2033, based on simple variables like the average life of a fiat currency and the debt burden the US carries. And he reckons he was probably too optimistic.
For my part, I think 2025 is when things will start going all kinds of wrong in very big ways. The West is in an existential crisis it cannot escape or hide under the carpet anymore. When it is over – and it WILL be over, eventually – the world will look very different from the way it does now.
And that’s about enough philosophising for the moment. You’re really here for the hot girl of the week, so here she is. This is Glynnis Diane Lyons, age about 30, and she is a beautician and model from Amerikhastan, living somewhere in Clownipornia. She gained significant notoriety recently when she tried to gain some attention for herself after the death of one Aaron Carter, brother of one of the Backstreet Boys – readers around my age might remember them. All I can say is that I neither know nor care about the drama, and it does not surprise me – thots gonna thot, after all.
Since it is no longer Friday, and I was rather late in putting this one up, all I can say is: enjoy your weekend, gentlemen, and have faith that whatever happens next, no matter how random things seem, there is unquestionably a plan behind it all. Actually, there are at least TWO plans behind it all – you have to choose which one you want to follow.
