  4. Ah, the realities we are now left to confront after these many years of ipso facto progress.
    It is both edifying and frustrating to know there are people of Taibbi’s and Hedges’ intellectual stature and passions for doing the right thing out “there,” which is coincidentally and symbiotically in ‘here’ in my own head, and I too have come to the same conclusions about the forces that have put us in this apparently untenable crossroads of civilizational history.
    The distinction I would make in my differences with Chris and Matt is they seem on the surface to yet hold out hope that “we can turn this thing around.” By the dedicated act and actions to inform others honestly, truthfully, and repeatedly. Not that they state it outright, but I think we—and they—as humans are compelled, constructed so as to in communicating to take for granted that if we only try, try, try, we shall indeed overcome. When it all comes down, what else do we have? Or believe (faith)?

    Humanity’s reach has exceeded its grasp, The enterprise has gotten far too large and unwieldy however, and it would take a manifold series of fortuitous and sadly, quite fanciful events to drag us back from our death spiral of collective self-induced societal psychoses.
    It’s been nice knowing you. Some of you, that is.
