The Puppet Masters

February 19, 2009

Let’s face it: there are only two real problems in the world and with this country, and those two problems have caused ALL the others.

The first is obvious but no one ever talks about it: overpopulation. But we’re not allowed to even talk about anything that would have people be more responsible in their reproduction or the fact that hospitals are more than happy to keep people alive in totally debilitated states so that they can just keep milking the cash cow.

For obvious reasons, we don’t want Big Brother making decisions for us about how many kids we have or when it’s time to admit someone’s never going to get any better and let them go. We’re afraid they will abuse both privileges if they’re given them.

But why aren’t we hearing huge groups of people talking about ways to encourage people to have fewer kids and about something approaching a right to die with some dignity left?

That’s because of the second problem: Greedy corporations that want there to be way too many people. Why? Because it means a work force that they can pay crap to and plenty of people to buy the crap they make.

Corporations aren’t actually faceless. They are all headed by a bunch of number-crunching greedy rich idiots who think they are worth $40 million a year, even though they only break a sweat in the gym.

But how can I call them idiots? After all, they got rich. But being willing to fuck people and  the environment over to make money doesn’t make you smart. It makes you a greedy bastard but it doesn’t show any intelligence whatsoever.

If you want to stay rich, you don’t put the people that buy your product out of work. You don’t break the back of the working class because they’re the ones that buy your products. Above all else, you don’t conduct your business in a way that destroys the planet because maybe—just maybe—your actions will make it impossible for people to live on this planet way before you’re actually dead.

They are betting their own future, our future, and the future of all of our children, on a fantasy that someone is going to come along and find a way to fix everything they are destroying.

How do they know that the genius that was going to be able too turn the tide of climate change hasn’t already been killed by it? How do we know that the person who was going to figure out how to make gas out of piss hasn’t already been killed by the global warming caused from car emissions?

Now I know a lot of you are convinced that climate change is a normal cycle in spite of what most studies have shown, but let’s think about this for a minute. Sometimes my tap water is brown and smells like algae. I didn’t do it. It isn’t my fault, but I don’t then go ahead and pour a cup of shit and a cup of used motor oil in it because, after all, it’s dirty anyway. That would be asinine, right? No, I boil it or filter it. I make it better—I don’t add to the problem.

It’s simple. There aren’t enough jobs. There aren’t enough resources. We’re changing our climate all for the same reason: there are too many of us.

None of us want to die and no one wants to advocate killing people off, but it’s time we all start talking about trying to steady our population. It’s an easy thing to do. Everyone who wants to have kids just needs to limit themselves to one or two biological children. If you want more than that then you should adopt. If people who wanted to reproduce only replaced themselves, then with all the people who only had one child or who didn’t want any at all, eventually the population would start to decrease instead of increase. The world could heal, and there would be more of everything for everyone.

We all need to stop adding crap to the problem and start actually trying to clean up our mess. Use less electricity, less oil, less everything. Recycle, reuse, repurpose, and quit throwing things out that someone else might use. Quit buying crap we will never use or that will wind up in a land fill in a year.

And here’s the biggest thing—the masses have got to quit letting the idiot rich run their lives. The rich don’t want health care reform, so what are they doing? They’re using a bunch of idiot, poor, ultra-conservatives to do their dirty work. They’ve got people calling to tell them a bunch of crap.

Every time anyone tries to do anything that might actually fix this country, the rich start recruiting the ultra-conservatives because they are so easy to get riled up. All you have to do is tell them that it’s all a communist conspiracy, and they jump on without even thinking.

And that’s the problem—they don’t think. They don’t think about who is feeding them this information and what their agenda might be. They don’t think about what their lives are like right now and how these things they are so worried about might actually make their lives better. They just plain don’t think.
