When Will The Men In White Coats Come?

 

A quick review of the internet this morning revealed the same old stories. Only the names and locations change.

Whether in Tanzania or Montreal, it doesn’t really matter, humans engage in the same general craziness which is essentially: trying to get more money, more power, and more lays.

That’s what it all boils down to: lays, power and money although it could be argued that power and money amount to the same thing but let’s not get bogged down in heavy argument in the third paragraph, what say?

Of course, it is difficult for the average human to grasp the broadness of human behavior given that there are more than 7 billion of us, each one with a long agenda that shrieks out for gratification whether immediate or long-term.

Imagine if you can, images flicking through your mind of each one of the 7 billion, each one a twenty second thumbnail of that person and their circumstance and agendas. You’d be clinically insane after ten minutes!

But if you reduce all the individual agendas down to their basics, it still comes back to lays, power and money. But here’s the catch. These wants/needs are rarely ever satisfied.

We have a lay, finally achieve $100,000 in our bank account, and get a promotion whereby we can laud it over 22 people we feel good. But then what do we want? You got it! We want another lay (preferably one every four hours), $200,000, and power over 35 people.

It doesn’t matter which echelon you belong to. Whether you’re a maize farmer in Nigeria or a President of a powerful nation, enough is never enough. The President wants to become the President of the World while the simple maize farmer wants to, one day, become a maize exporter and have several wives (though surely one is already too many for most men).

So the bottom line is that most humans can never feel more than temporary gratification. This is because we keep moving the goal posts for ourselves while clever others keep moving them twice as quickly. So you drive a Lexus and then, via the television and slick advertising, we are convinced that we really should have a Lamborghini to better show off our wonderful talents and achievements to the mortal proles of which, unknowingly, we are one.

We humans are half-animal and half-human. The two aspects are incompatible. We are constantly at war with ourselves and others of our kind. Such a war can only have one ending given the widespread existence of nukes.  KABOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMM!

Please send in the men with the white coats. Perhaps they’ll save us!

But where would we find 7 billion well-adjusted psychologists and psychiatrists?

  1. Rothschild family have half the wealth of the people on the planet and still want more, every one else i guess aspires to be like those money superstars.

  2. Just what is the purpose of life? We spend most of it chasing gratification, but we can’t catch it. We spend the rest of it collecting trinkets thinking that those are gratification, they’re not. The rest of it is just for show, there’s no substance to it. The lucky ones were aborted before birth into this meaningless dimension, they got to continue their bliss, we were robbed of ours. Luckily, it’s temporary, it’s the effects of a nasty flue bug going around in our dimension, and the ones that catch it, end up here. They’re still working on a cure, but meantime, this is the “world of the sick”. Maybe that explains why we are what we are when we’re here. The unwell of the other side. Maybe that explains why we’re here. This is the leper colony of heaven, or whatever you want to call it, but it’s not here. And these ridiculous looking “space suits” they make us wear while we’re here, are just cruel, I mean pleeaaase, they’re defective, and gaudy. Maybe that’s why we have to leave them here when we go back. Maybe they’re a form of “shame badge”, we’re being punished for something, and it must have been really bad to end up here, wearing these stupid looking things, “bodies”. I’m sure I was much happier before THIS, and I promise whatever I did to get here, I’ll never do it again. Ever. No way. No. Never.

  3. Yeah, humans have an incurable sickness, at least most of them do, a Regular person! It ties in nicely with the greed-based sickness of people like the Rothchilds for whom enough is never enough.

    That was why the Ancient Greeks despised those who engaged in ‘business’ instead of philosophy, the arts, the sciences, etc.

    Joe, your comment came in while I was replying to ARP! It is an excellent comment and illustrates the sadness of the human condition in a way that is very touching.

    We are indeed a sorry lot.

  4. Where current education systems preach obedience over initiative, why be surprised the proles don’t know how to think for themselves.

    Some of us were lucky in having family environment teaches us to research everything ‘simon says’ industries throw at us.

    As for the flaky world of currency, I prefer to invest in power harvesting devices as alternative to hording wealth. 100,000 in worthless cash could at least keep the family warm via the fireplace but trapped in that keycard a warm fire will not last long.

    You get or you don’t get it. As has always been the case on earth, be prepared or be prepared to perish applies I think.

  5. I’m thankful for having a few hours a day free for global research or I might give up on hope that the minority you speak of is on the grow. Your blog is one example of said resilience.

    Stuff that worries me most:

    Sly corporate caverns jam packed with nasty chemicals, collapsing;
    Nuke cores in Japan that no current technology can locate, let alone fix;
    Ongoing Mexico Gulf oil; again, we are well out of our depth on all fronts to fix;
    Depleted uranium weapons; We do that one on purpose, go figure;
    Poisoned ocean. where the oxygen giving plankton is dying;
    Human right to clean air, clean water, real food, freedom to say no. All redundant apparently;

    The list goes on and on and on. Yes, our world has some problems to solve outside the tiny celebrity world of politics and their currency hordes.

    A sharing from Han Ying on the drum today I found inspiring came with a really thoughtful last paragraph does say it all pleb side.

    “I hope sharing my story will encourage the international community to support the victims of China’s forced evictions. Please consider that many have stories equally or more harrowing than mine.”

    There are no men in white coats to fix this 26 century old draco’ celebrity politic approach does assume to rule us all.

    Will the communication tool of the Internet defy historical records in how this cycle ends? All rests on us civillians of earth getting our collective act together ‘eh?

  6. The Buddhist Thich Nhat Hanh has a way to describe the kind of people you are talking about. He calls them “hungry ghosts”. My country of America is full of them and it is quite possible that we are about to “elect” an ultimate example in the form of Willard Mitt Romney.

  7. Gryph and Bruce, ‘hungry ghosts’ is an apt description of the Predators and Parasites that rule our world.

    We need to set up new models for people to emulate, ones that have some understanding of terms like honesty, caring, compassion, nobility, peace and love!
