The Duck From Hell
The social conciousness is dying. I offer, as proof, two instances, one federal, one local:
For actively pursuing to expand the knowing of the public the New York Times is being reprimanded by the White House and certain news organizations that shall remain nameless. That's right, for investigating and informing the public that their privacies are being invaded in a fascist manner, the NYT is being ripped on by the organization flagrantly abusing a majority in all three branches of federal government and a member of an organization that is supposed to inform the people of the failings of those branches.
A library is being closed in Livermore Falls. A public house of knowledge is being financially exterminated. What's worse, this is due to a vote by the people. Perhaps, had these people read Fahrenheit 451 they would have chosen differently. Or, perhaps, the ignorant fucking retards in their infinite supply of stupidity have become so obsessed with their wall-screens and modern fashions that they have attempted to skip forward directly into the more inevitable than ever future of mental conformity and weakness.
This is why madmen like Stalin, Mao, Cromwell, Napolean, Nero, and Hitler are needed, because even if it has only been for a short period of time that tends to show up late, they inspire people to improve by sowing the seeds of death and destruction. People wake the hell up when madmen make statistics.
Kant once said, "David Hume has woken me from my dogmatic slumber." Well it's about damn time that people start waking the fuck up while we still can, because with every passing day more knowledge slips away replaced by the facade that is technology and false prophets.
