...Alien Invasion Never Looked So Good...


There's always been idle talk about "them."
.
Them.
.
They.
.
The proverbial "Man."
.
Though, just who ~are~ "they"? Who or what is "them"? Who is the Man?  Does this nebulous entity even exist?
.
Risking the sneering of those "bought in" around you and wondering if the unsettling concept even begins to hold water... the disconcerted reader can begin to suspect that the aforementioned concept as regards "the man..." ...must hold an ocean of water.  ...Ocean systems of water, reader.  See, this is all merely a function of which side of the bullhorn you find yourself; the side in control of same... and the other side.  The 1% (?) ... or the 99, eh?
.
So no, "They" are not "aliens from space," if that's what you thought I was on about today. Uh-uh. Today I speak of the "they" that is "us"... ...I'd only be hoping for aliens from space... ...given the flip side is Dick Cheney and his psychopathic lot.
.
Yes, *They* exist as sure as "intelligent designers" put spots on little green apples and then buries real news behind a tabloid dross of Runaway Brides, penis moles and whoring Secret Service Agents... Conservatively? Three of these persons in a hundredmore of your fellow citizens, reader, when under duress!—will bleed you out, dispassionately, for the laces on your shoes... that's right.
.
This is the "them" of which I speak.  Truth.
.
More truth? Less than one of these aforementioned three will be a woman. Much, much less than a fraction of that will be a person of color.  More Truth.  White people, it would seem, have a special proclivity for psychopathy, but I digress.
.
Back at the ranch, "Ideal Society" is—and always has been—a means to protect the other 97 Human Beings from being abused, too egregiously, with regard to the self-serving activities of that terrible, even if necessary, 3%...
.
Briefly in required digression, sociopathy becomes *necessary*by way of necessity—because we require an ongoing inoculation from these sociopaths or we get weak as a species... ...and it is the rare occasion—because of our prosecuted complacencies, contraryness, and inconsistencies— that the sociopath's way way is the *survival* way—the only way—a ballast-cutting "forward escape" from disaster; it is what happens after the asteroid hits, perhaps. Sorry if you're on the "ballast," but "Survival" at any cost. ...Remember when our darling Tom Cruise had to kill Tim Robbins in "War Of The Worlds"? There's heat where the rubber meets the road...
.
Lately, that society accelerates AWAY from its responsibility to—at least minimally—protect its citizenry from the aforementioned, reader, even to the point of recently letting Americans rot in the sun... ...to be eaten by rats, abandoned pets, and alligators for a full week as a result of Hurricane Katrina...?
.
...We're not getting our money's worth? You think?
.
Did you ever believe that this would be America, reader? I'm over 60, remember. I'd endured Viet Nam and Watergate.  I'd foolishly thought we'd been made more immune to Graft, Conspiracy, Corruption, authoritarianism, and irrational war. I was wrong. I never would have predicted this. ...How bad we would let it get... It's bad...
.
I'm a retired soldier and a certified school teacher who has ever only tried to be an asset to my group of fellow humans, reader. I'm no radical even as I have a mind of my own and prefer to think out of the box like any good American...
.
...What I thought was a good American at any rate...
.
I've a wife and family and quality friends... they deserve a better society than what is presently (and illegitimately) being served in a corporate driven administration's crony-istic insider's prosecution of creeping theocracy and blooming fascism... ...a criminal society of Democrats—and worse— prosecuted in a predatory and insensate culture... ...a culture by which innocence and decency can eventually prove fatal?
.
What hides in there? We shall see, I suspect.
.
Who are "they." Who are these persons, fellow human beings who blithely disrespect us so, who steal our savings, corrupt our faith, lie to our collective faces, murder our children, infect us with disease, direct us to pollute our food and air... ...even destroy our planet?
.
Sadly, I'd have to say "us," ultimately... every individual who buys in, supports, and facilitates the status quo... but we're just piccolo players in the vast orchestra, reader! Who's conducting this mess? That's the issue! The short answer?
.
Them...
.
Well, forgetting for a moment that the insidious "THEY" are handily expressed in the persons around you... ...those who DARE to sneer at you from their dodgy castle ramparts of three parts jingo-istics, two parts reflexive ignorance and one part canted citation...? Not these so much... ...these are more to be pitied...
.
Who are... ..."they"?
.
Well...
.
"They" are... ...the privileged arbitrary, the stealthy unelected, and far too many of the fraudulently elected.
.
"They," are those who have, and having had, would keep on having... despite an aggregate detriment to the common good of those who "have not."
.
"They," are in possession of information that would credit or be to the advantage of anyone who knew... ...specifically...outlining why most know not.
.
"They" are the secret keepers.
.
"They" are the jealous manipulators of the hijacked mainstream.
.
"They" are the ardent covetous who encourage bland employees while they discourage ones who might think more critically.
.
"They" are the ones with hidden agendas, duplicitous plans, and secret programs.
.
"They" are the -few- willing to profit at the expense of the -many-.
.
"They" are above the law, outside reasonable ethics, practice a sociopathic amorality, and hold the many enthralled... but beneath their privileged contempt...
.
...Not to put too fine a point on it, eh reader?
.
Folks -- As I wrote before, don't credit or enable that which disrespects you; don't reward or compensate that which fails to satisfy you. Withhold your vote, your sympathy, and your dollars. Deny it your essence, your support, and your consideration. Refuse it your concern, your regard, or your facilitation.
.
Know these by the fruit they have produced:
.
... A destroyed economy ... a shrinking middle class ... a degraded health care system ... a diseased environment ... a destroyed military force ... a degraded Bill of Rights ... a degraded quality of life ... Fear and loathing ... Increased Crime ... Pederasty ... Incompetent Cronyism ... laughable ballots ... the rape of our republic ... death ... torture ... unrestricted sociopathy ... tyranny ... a complete disruption of the rule of law ... the list could go on and on as you know it must...
.
Know them by their fruit... distruction and degradation... ...and such is the fruit?
.
Believe me, we don't really want a fraction of what they're trying to sell us, not really. We are enthralled with EVIL presently, reader... faithless, covetous, gluttonous, jealous, murderous... ...gibbering and capering evil, kind Sir and good Madam.
.
Indeed -- hold "them" beneath your contempt, concern, and consideration as you would any soul killer. The soul you save will be your own.
.
...Alien Invasion from beyond the stars never looked so good... you know...?
.
Read on...

Sadly it is US that lets the THEY get away with it and there are far more US than THEY. I am as much to blame as everyone, just too lazy.
