The New Normal, Nuclear Waste and Pig Shit Will Cause Environmental Disaster as Hurricane Florence hits Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia

Trump is of course being the piece of shit that he is and ignoring the incoming devastation as he defends his pathetic response to Puerto Rico a year ago. But it doesn’t matter, the people are going to suffer no matter who’s on television. Amy Goodman starts crying as she speaks to the highest levels of imprisonment of children in US history. Followed by Eric Trump being blatantly anti-semetic on cable news.

Preparing for Life Under a Declining Empire

America has been experiencing a steady decline in living conditions for more of its people each year, wealth disparity has been burned into the system by an economic model that rewards the haves and punished the have nots. Regardless of this reality for so many, American government, media, and education proudly celebrate their nation, constantly reminding its own citizens and the rest of the world world that is the greatest nation on earth.

Isaam Zahreddine “Lion of the Republican Guard” Syrian Army

You probably haven’t heard about the general who saved his people from the Saudi/American sponsored ISIL Seige of Syria in 2013.

If your government is funding and celebrating the destruction of a nation, do you trust its media or some shitty subreddit for the truth? Who knows what truth is, but here’s some counter-points to the mainstream narrative about one man Issam Zahreddine. It’s been 6 months since his death from a landmine, hopefully these memes will one day be recognized as some of the more honest reflections on America’s decades long attempted invasion and destruction of Syria.

Phiolosophy of Pessimism

America is getting ready to go to war with Syria, Russia, and Iran. We must stop this empire from starting another war.

The US media has seized on the latest claims by CIA-backed groups of a poison gas attack on civilians to demand a further escalation of the US-led war for regime-change in Syria and an increased confrontation with Russia.

Being Julian Assange

Israel, Russia, and Amazon. April 2018.

Jimmy Dore

The damaging impact of concentration of wealth and power corrupting governments can be seen all over the world today. Imperialism is subjugating Palestinians in open air prisons, Syrians in a proxy war aimed at Russia, and Americans in a crushing failing capitalist society.

The Global Financial Crisis of 2018 is Starting to Get Noticed

There has to be a movement from below otherwise there's no counter force that can take us in another direction.

Today was a bloody day on Wall Street, and the articles have started pouring in, admittedly it’s been a bloody month, quarter, and year, but finally the media is ready to start realizing there is that there is too much debt, not enough wages, no real profits, a new oil standard, overpriced assets, and too much inequality. That’s a bit too much to take a for country that isn’t a democracy, is ignoring climate change, starting trade wars, and being run by sociopath.

I don’t Want to Die in America

I moved here for work, I will not stay here until death.

These magnficant American lands are filled with beautiful people, living in a poisoned culture which is killing both. That’s why I became so anxious. That’s why I sunk into depression. That’s why I stopped caring about anything, anyone. That’s why I left New York. That’s why I made jobs in Perth. That’s why I will go home. That’s where I’ll die, as we all do.

Americans are Scared of Americans, Not Guns

They've been programmed to be scared of each other, they don't know who to trust, and some of them are willing to kill over that.

As an American You lay in bed at night staring at the ceiling, worrying about tomorrow, what it will bring, what it will change, what it will kill. It’s not a question of whether these things will happen, you know they will, something always happens, and it’s going to be in your face, and it’s going to make you feel horrible. Teenager guns down his classmates because of violet video games Cop shoots a child because black teenagers are out of control The US government bombed a wedding because the groom hated freedom Your stupid dickhead of a president opened his dumb fucking mouth again So you want to ban all guns because horrible people do fucked up things that result in the death of people who look like you.

Concentration of Wealth and Power

Noam Chomsky

10 reasons why America is not a democracy, is a horrible place to live, is causing mass distress, and is killing children and adults alike, both in America and in foreign nations.

This Gun Debate Ignores Empire's Power

Killer Mike

It's not even a debate, it's just another idealogy laced fight between the lower classes, a distraction from the real threat of Empire.

Of course people are jumping on Killer Mike because he appeared on NRA TV to provide a position that taking away people’s guns will not solve the issues America is facing. I have worked as a tireless advocate on the behalf of children and disenfranchised women in society, I’ve also worked with gun groups like Georgians’ Against Gun Violence, so I say if there’s a table to be sat at, a gun owner needs to be there.

Accepting Collapse and Moving Beyond Hope

Our biosphere is dying and so is all life on Earth. Hope in “a solution” is the drug we use to avoid the truth that it’s too late, that our culture is responsible, and that it will not help us.

I have to admit that I haven’t been fully honest, in a lot of my writing I’ve implied that it’s important to get engaged in community in order to change policy to avoid extinction. The truth is that the time for action has come and gone, greedy people made decisions decades ago to force us down the path of ignoring the problem while we had any chance of solving it.

Be Prepared (2018-03)

I was raised under the motto "Be Prepared", this ethos guides my decision making, I intend to be prepared for each new phase of our collapse, this is my March 2018 self audit.

“The Collapse” sounds like a thing that happens in front of your eyes right? It sounds like an event, a catastrophe that dominates everybody’s attention, like an explosion, or a market crash, or a war. No, it’s not that simple, nothing in this interconnected hypernormalised world will ever be simple. Collapse of our civilization, of this dominant culture, is a continuing and long process, it has no clear beginning and it’s end will only be defined in the history books.

How Can The Enemy State, Have Citizens This Friendly?

The American people are our brothers and sisters, The American Government is the enemy to life on Earth. We have to love the people, the people have to reclaim their government and change its ways. Before it's too late.

I feel so much love in this place, this community in Colorado where I am surrounded by amazing people who are doing all they can to make the world better. But any time I start reading up on the latest happenings in “the world” I am bombarded with just how horrible, cruel, and desperate the US government has become. Today we had Ann Coulter come at Trump hard for signing the $1.

We Have Monetised the End of the World

Destroy Capitalism! There is money in stopping climage change and saving the Earth but there is much more money in making it worse.

The Shifting Russia Narrative

Have you been keeping up since Russia cheated in the olympics, hacked the election, gassed Syria, and now failed to very publicly kill a spy?

So now that we know it was Steve Bannon using the same Facebook backdoor that the Obama campaign used in 2012, we’re not talking about the hacked election story anymore? Crazy how the week that story left the media it was because Russia had apparently obviously failed to kill an old spy, in London, on ally territory. This ever shifting narrative is the work of an empire’s mass media which is dedicated to manufacturing consent to allow America to start a war against Russia.

Pain Essay

Yeah this culture is killing the planet and I could spend a lot of energy pretending it isn't or I can accept this is reality and do whatever needs to be done.

Getting in Trouble

All my life I've been getting in trouble and been afraid of getting in trouble. I'm not afraid anymore and you can't be either, because we really need your help.

I hadn’t been using my blog because I was afraid to, afraid of what would happen if I wrote about what I was thinking. When I was 18 I used to write about getting tattoos and making money to get tattoos. These days I write about the atrocities committed by the American Empire both locally and globally, I write in protest to a system so corrupted by power that its current course is set on destroying all life as we know it.

I Love Americans, I Love Russians

"America itself could be described as one gigantic ongoing psyop" - Caitlin Johnstone

I love Americans, I’ve even been in love with a few of them, they are good-hearted human beings, for the most part, like most people, for the most part. I love Russians, I am the son and brother of Russians, they are good-hearted human beings, like most other people. I’ve never lived in Russia, I’ve never experienced their day-to-day life, their culture first hand, their language surrounding me, their food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, their entertainment and advertising filling my waking moments.

Socializing is Work, Social Media is Exploitation

Social Media platforms use your content to make money. They manipulate user’s minds to keep them engaged on a platform. Even Zuckerberg doesn’t want people using the platform as much as they do. Get off social media.

America Will Collapse, Earth Will Boil, and Humanity Will Perish

Understanding this will help you plan for your future.

America Will Collapse As an Australian who spent 6 years in the hyper-capitalist center of the world (New York City) I’ve had to improve my coping mechanisms immensely as the harsh reality of massive inequality was shoved in my face. Last year I moved to a small town in Colorado to run-out-the-clock as I shift my career back to Perth to get away from a nation that’s tearing itself apart.

Does the 2018 Financial Crisis Begin With Pensions, Technology, or Something Else?

So does the next financial crisis begin with pensions? … Maybe. It Begins: Pension Bailout Bill To Be Introduced This Week Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown from Ohio plans to introduce legislation that would allow struggling multiemployer pension funds to borrow from the U.S. Treasury to remain solvent. There’s so many bubbles, could it be that tech brings things down? Investors now value a $20 billion company based on its “energy and spirituality”
