I once had a philosopher tell me, “Write drunk, edit sober.”
I also once had a voice in my head tell me, “It’s media, you know – me to ya.”
This blog is not like that. This is the end product of the totality of my knowledge, which is something that makes me want to drink because it seems I know too much. I’ve looked in the eyes of the fiat currency and lost my way. I used to believe that money was an actual thing. I do not believe in that reality anymore. These thoughts haunt me as it nears midnight and all I know is that I spent the last 6 years writing garbled nonsense in my journal and working in a damn feild. These thoughts will haunt you, too. It is because there is nothing that we know that is actually real. All these ideas are created by people, and influenced by those who came before us. Not only is it impossible to come up with a truly imaginative thought, it appears to be impossible to have an actual thought. Don’t let my depression curb your interest. That wouldn’t be good for either of us.
To be a responsible adult, I want to act like an economist to add to the public discourse. I want to fill this blog with convincing arguments to love your brothers and sisters. I want to make something that chases the leaders around and holds them accountable to the freaks. I want to fight for the harmless freaks. It is important to fight for all freedoms to do all the weird stuff you want. There is always a way to cure any fetish (secular or religious) in a righteous way that benefits all those who come near it.
The freaks are generally oppressed. It is apparent in the class of citizen that they are. They are not the archetype that is claimed to be the way. They are smart. I assume they don’t hate anyone. They know that the light is within them, and righteously we must wake to their happiness. Not everyone moves at the same pace, nor to the beat of the same drum. Be smart. They don’t hate anyone.
On Sunday November 20th, 2016 I was watching CNN, some press conference with which Obama was droning on and making jokes, until he knocked on wood. I understand it is just a phrase, but it seemed to make him more human. You know, I too believe in great forces. That cat is a terrific bullshitter, and I think a good kind of president, barring the hundreds of thousands of people his forces killed with remote controlled planes. I think he probably killed fewer people than those Bush’s, because I think they were a little more recklessly genocidal.
I suppose this is the thing I want to say. There are plenty of people who are watching these folks do this, but very few of them that refuse to toe the line. Many people were like me that day, in fact, some would say the whole world was watching. This is a basic principle of democracy.
Everyone wants the basic inalienable truths. They want themselves and their immediate family to be safe and fed. There are millions of people who want to be an archetype of some fantasy person that they think is the best kind of person. The only variation is between what type of person they think is the best kind of person to be. I am a certain kind of person, trying to emulate people that I respect. All the other people are trying to do the same.
Taking drugs and drinking is not necessarily the best thing to do with ones time, I understand that, but there I was with my notebook watching Obama’s press conference and having these insights. This is the life of a strange artist and writer, something that I decided long ago I was going to be with my adult life. I’m not sure what to think. I can change the world, but this is an abstract notion based in my ego. If I write something important, then it only takes $100 to print a bunch of copies of the booklet and send it out into the world. This allows us to add to the public discourse. The world needs help, that I know for sure. Never give up. And I have an idea! It’s this, called “Drunkenly Watching the News.” I am creating this blog because my other blog is mostly filled with mania and absent ramblings. The link that will send you there is somewhere on this blog, I’m sure.
The tiring and tricky thing while watching that press conference was that Obama was using the phrase “World Order” like he has no idea that is a triggering word for the maniacs and troubled souls that are afraid the government are a bunch of reptiles from space digging up the grand canyon to build the moon and help them create a slave race on Mars for some reason. It is all insane. I understand that the phrase means the world as it works today – democracy that allows these people to elect a wing-nut like Trump, a free press that lets any idiot write manic pages about slave races on Mars that he has no way of actually knowing about, open markets that allow me to sell insane ideas in the streets, welfare states that support us when we decide not to work or are psychically unable to, the whole mess of capitalism and the greed it fosters, human rights and all the good they have done for everyone, public health care that allows me to drink and smoke heavily for 15 years until I switch to the apparently better but not tested vape pen, and development of the world including the internet that you are finding these strange words on. This is not a bad thing. The modern world is a great place for me, anyways. I would rather be alive now than basically any other time in human history, as far as I know. I once read a book about how the world is safer than it has ever been. I mean honour killings are way down, people in this part of the world can fuck whoever they feel like fucking, people have the entirety of human education in their pockets most of the time. There is lots to be thankful for.
Now let us hope and pray that Trump makes the world better. I suppose only time will tell. I mean, any of the people that I know who support that guy don’t believe the mass media, but believe those crazed ramblings that they see online. I’m living proof that anyone can write whatever they want and put the words online. Trump pandered to the uneducated, so that means, the people who are not interested in educating themselves. I should add here that there is no way that guy was so successful without some kind of education, whether it was learning on his own time or some kind of college certificate. I only know one guy who refuses to educate himself in any way, and he hears the voices of God in his head, he claims. They guide him to make his decisions, though he often discusses things out of thin air that are simply not happening in my world. I’ve got mental troubles, don’t get me started on those, but in truth the most important decision I ever made was to educate myself through the use of reading and writing and listening to audiobooks and courses that I can find online. Again, the entirety of human knowledge is at your fingertips at any time of the day. That is really all you need, right?
We cannot pretend that Trump wasn’t elected, even though people all over the world want to be transported to another dimension of some kind. We must not disassociate. Reality is coming to get us, I am sure. There is a whole world that wants us to save it. We can drink and eat candy as much as we can handle, but the reality is there is a whole world around us, watching everything we do. Trump is going to get in trouble, I am sure. This isn’t going to happen slowly, it will be a small snowball rolling along until it has gathered enough grass to make serious trouble. They will get rid of him when he is causing major troubles for the elite, but why would he do that? He is not an outsider, he is one of the richest men in the world. That is the main thing I do not understand about these supporters. How is he one of you? Besides being racist and misogynistic, I don’t see any similarities. Anyways, if you read this far, maybe you can send me a comment on why Trump is the best guy for this job. I’m intensely curious why people voted for him. Perhaps this is the Berenstain universe, as opposed to the Berenstein universe that I grew up in. That would explain this whole thing.
