Systems Failure

Greetings good citizen,

Every once in a while one of the ‘symptoms’ of cascading systemic failure rears its ugly head, confirming the destruction of our civilization is proceeding ‘as planned’.

Now, with the concentration of the highest unemployment rates in the South and the West, some economists wonder if it is an anomaly of the uneven recovery or a harbinger of things to come.

“Because the recovery is so painfully slow, people may begin to think of the trends established during the recovery as normal,” said Howard Wial, a fellow at the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program who recently co-wrote an economic analysis of the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas. “Will people think of Florida, California, Nevada and Arizona as more or less permanently depressed? Think of the Great Lakes as being a renaissance region? I don’t know. It’s possible.”

The West has the highest unemployment in the nation. The collapse of the housing bubble left Nevada with the highest jobless rate, 13.4 percent, followed by California with 12.1 percent. Michigan has the third-highest rate, 11.2 percent, as a result of the longstanding woes of the American auto industry.

How bizarre is it that people, the vast bulk of them anyway, believe whatever they’re told to think by ‘authority’ (regardless of how sketchy that ‘authority’ may be…)

Heard it on the TV or read it online and never for a moment did they think to ‘question the source’.

Because when push come to shove, good citizen, the Corporate owned media has no more ‘credibility’ than I do…truth be told, considerably less.

Do you really give a flying fuck what a fellow from the (Libertarian sponsored) ‘Brookings Institute’ says?

Remember, the whacko Tea Partiers are Libertarians too!

It is perhaps more interesting to note that the Libbies also subscribe to the ‘Free Market Capitalism’ that is responsible for destroying the global economy!

So what do you think of this ‘renaissance region’ now, it’s still an ‘economic desert’, isn’t it?

This isn’t about Libertarianism, it’s about people who will accept lame excuses from ignorant people who SHOULD HAVE BEEN laughed out of power by the cold light of reason.

But no, SOMEBODY kept that light from shining on their ‘stupidity’…not that this prevented anything.

The survivors will write books about the enormity of the failures perpetrated by the self interested…some day.

If there are any…

Yes, good citizen, if we keep following our so-called leaders down the rabbit hole, we may lose what civilization we had.

They’re already ‘dumbing us down’ to the point where we may well not be able to recover…and some would opine that was a good thing…

And they’d be mistaken.

Which is not to say there isn’t a goodly number of things we need to ‘unlearn’.

The so-called ‘adults’ in the room were ‘bought off’, leaving the rest of us exposed to untold danger.

We now need to regain control of the situation before things get too far out of hand.

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
