The aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." ... "That's not the way the world really works anymore," he continued. "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."
This is exactly what has happened. We have continued to see what has been done, and just as we start to voice our opposition, they have thrown the next created reality at us. Does anyone really think that we have had any effect on them? Have they even once slowed down and said "wait we cant do this, the people are against it"? No. They have continued without a thought to us because they know that we will do nothing to stop them other than to look on in horror as each of these terrible reality's fly past us in a succession that moves with the speed of light.
Look at all of the posts from the beginning. How many horrors have we seen? How many horrors have we posted on only for them to be quickly moved to the back burner because of something more immediate and threatening has been brought to light?
I feel as if I am on a train that has lost control, screaming down a mountain at ever increasing speeds. The truthseekers and pacifists throw their bodies on the tracks in the hopes of slowing down this train that is heading for the dead end of destruction but this does not slow down the train one bit, it just smashes through the feeble barricade of bodies with the maniacal conductor laughing with glee at the carnage left in his reckless wake, screaming forward to the next barricade. When are we going to realize that we must do the unthinkable?
I'm tired guys. I really dont know if I can do this anymore. Each day that passes by, each new reality that is created without slowing one iota brings me closer to the conclusion that we have lost. Each day has become harder for me to not just say "The hell with it" and close my eyes to what is happening so that I can enjoy my last days on this earth to the fullest. All because no one wants to fight. They are afraid. You think that this can be won peacefully? So be it. Eventually everyone will realize what has to be done. Either you are with them, or you are against them. If you are against them, you had best be ready for the inevitable.
We could have nipped this in the bud. Instead we allowed it to florish, its poison spreading across the globe breeding a hatred that will force the world to remove this poisonous vine that is threatening to ensnare humanity.
We thought that we could prune it, keep the growth in control. We did not realize that because we allowed it to live, it poisoned us, the keepers first before spreading unchecked. Now here we stand, staring helplessly at what has been unleashed. We seem to think that yelling at it will make the poisonous vine to shrivel and die. We do nothing.
Deny this all you want. Scream, cry, delude yourself if you like. At some point the ugly reality will force you to look it in the face.
