History & politics of fear

large_bonfire

I haven’t said much here recently. But what exactly do you say when you wake up in a bizzaro world where the choices are two more terms for a family that already spent 8 years there, and a man-child egomaniac who blew the family fortune on building overpriced casinos? Okay, maybe there’s something to the history lessons. Maybe we are going to nearly repeat the destructive tendencies that led two world wars. Maybe it’s really that bad.

Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. What I do know is that whatever stupid shit the rest of the world does, we don’t have to fall for it. We have, for the first time in the history of the world, the power to create money and give it to people instead of letting a bunch of corrupt hereditary charltans ‘manage’ our money supply. We have fascinating financial dirty tricks like Bitcoin in which the market apparently decided to make the bitcoin I loaned my first campaign and started this blog worth 5 or 6 times what it was when I bought this blog for one coin.

Unlike Tobias (who I’m linking twice, for good measure. Read his stuff), I don’t think we need to harness and channel fear. Leave the fearmongering to the markets. Channel your hopes and dreams and analytical mindset. Look at where your money is coming from, and where it’s going. Fear gets people to do stupid things with their money. Be smarter. Get up and take it. Trump and the Clintonocrats all try to harness fear, and make us all so damned afraid to get out of bed unless we send them some payola.

Fear is the mind-killer. Get your mind in gear and take their money. And if you really want to strike fear into the hearts of the fearmongers, burn it.
