My intention with this "Odd Observation" series is to chronicle a little of what I've been seeing in the sky as it regards the aggregate and bionic weird. It seemed like a good bet when I started that I would frequently be able to report on "something". They are up there quite a bit, or at least they had been... they are up there if you take the time to look, at any rate. I've been looking.
This is, therefore, only a seeming way to do nothing more than waste your time and otherwise distract you from a seeming panoply of obscene, obsolescent, and obnoxiously inordinate (sometimes certainly harmful) goods and services otherwise proffered like a dirty black market human organ bank on Futurama.
Forgetting my own personal enjoyment, I'm glad to be able to do it for the interested who would "look," themselves, if they had the time... You know, if they (unlike me) had otherwise "productive" lives precluding the looking referred to? [g].
...But, producing ~what~ widgets to weapons of war! [no cute emoticon here]
Forget that, in the round, the "plan" of culture may facilitate the individual... that's admitted straight up. Full stop. Though remember, instead, that the individual is and always has been the enemy of that culture, that opposition most times fomented when a good thing goes bad and beneficence is replaced with tyranny. Being the enemy of tyranny is not, necessarily, a bad thing. Yes, V&V, sometimes it's RIGHT and Correct to bite the hand that feeds you.
In other words: those most rewarded by society and culture and, therefore, the most loath to change an egregiously profitable (...you know the difference!) status quo... to what may jeopardize or lessen that reward to which the officiators of "culture" have become to feel entitled! Donald Trump, by way of example, is an iceberg's tip.
Yes, V&V, a corrupt elite surely exists and has always existed. Would you think that it has your best interests at heart? That its pronoun is "it" should give you a gentle clue.
So, where are they, lately?
