We have no piece on their piechart

Sylvia Shawcross

There is a lusty bird that sings at dusk outside my window high in the cedar tree. I’ve never seen him but he warbles wildly and poignantly as if to say for the night, “come live with me and be my love.” He is a lonely child of the wilderness spreading his heart to the dying wind knowing the sun is going down and he will be alone watching the predators on the ground, waiting for daybreak.

On the nights I do not hear his mournful cry I am happy thinking of him with another cuddled in branches somewhere chirping poetry. He is here tonight however. And it will be a long night. As it will be for the world for many nights. Long long nights.

We people of the world watch our leaders with trepidation. It is as if they have gone mad collectively.

But perhaps it is not madness after all. Perhaps it is as mundane as being in debt and held to ransom by the mad. The really mad. The horrific monsters playing with us in ruthless pursuit of ultimate wealth and control. We often say they live above the fray but they “are” the fray—aggressive and competitive and deeply duplicitous with their own for the most part. It is a dance of egos whirling without joy. And those who dance, when left alone, can be found sadly drawing pictures of their future utopias on the walls of the caves. Protected there in the cave, but still in a cave… shut off from the world. Underground where the bats collect at daybreak. Above them in the daylight the children of the earth play. They, in their caves do not know these children. They never did.

However that is beside the point, the real point is we, the mooing herds (who are, through our very existence, guilty of inefficient land usage), have no piece on their piecharts. In fact, all these piecharts, graphs and future projections and all those mountainous piles of words and studies are written for themselves. All these meetings and seminars and presentations are shows put on for their own entertainment. All of it has very little to do with the real world. They are living in a simulation of their own imagination.

In truth the only part the mooing herds play in their visions is where we are expected, cajoled, herded, manipulated, or even threatened to conform to their plans. While they pontificate and draw piecharts on their walls, the mooing herds have maintained the planes and trains and taxis that got them there, made and prepared the food that they will eat, built the rooms, the machines and the furniture they are using, made the beds, ploughed the roads, delivered the goods, photocopied the papers, served the coffee, guarded their asses and showed them where the washrooms were. Because the vast majority of people do not live in a simulation. We know this if only because when we stub our toes it hurts. But they never stub their toes. Apparently.

These kinds of things could not be written if they didn’t make it so damn easy. Really. WHAT world are they living in? It’s not the one we’re living in. Here in Canada, our leader is attacking his opposition by accusing him of supporting a group called Diagalon which according to investigations by the RCMP and others is a harmless “not” terrorist “not” right-wing-extremist group. He is also accusing the opposition leader of not speaking out against Alex Jones, the American “conspiracy theorist.”

In what world does our government live in? It is a case of them picking these odd little things and creating a mountain where moles live. It is perhaps a reason they find for themselves to explain their unpopularity. This unpopularity knows neither economic nor political boundaries. It is pretty much the majority. Nevertheless, it is an odd thing to realize that it is the government itself that is giving credence to conspiracy theory. It is our government itself that believes the conspiracies. It is the ultimate confession by projection and it does not bode well. We have a government afraid of its own makings.

Our leader, in his efforts to reclaim popularity has accused those who do not want to support the “globalist” agenda as being foolishly wishing for the old days and out of touch with the future—Old-fashioned and uneducated one can suppose from the rhetoric.

Why the mooing herds have to explain to our leaders the obvious is quite ridiculous: People are not longing for the old days so much as longing for the days when they had jobs, lower taxation, groceries they could afford, affordable housing, gas prices that were reasonable for such a large country and an optimistic future for their children. They are longing for the reputation of a tolerant and multi-cultural country that did not have huge protests on the streets about one thing or another. They want the peace and good fellowship they have spent generations building. They want what they worked for.

And they do not much like what is planned for the future. At all. Who would? Except those who will find themselves happily living as exceptions to the rules being laid out. The madness of utopian elitism is becoming clearer.

It is in so many ways a tragedy to watch our government. Yes, Canadians do want dental care and childcare and care for the planet and all those things but they are entitled to these things without having to give up freedom, dignity, privacy, and peace. It is simply being presented as a choice that does not have to be a choice. It is mostly how the money is allocated. How are those wars going? Who and what do all these globalist agendas serve? If not the people? A government is a representation of the people and when the majority of people are not included in decisions, it is no longer a government. What is it then?

Peace. Here. Now.

Here’s an earworm for you. We’ve been at this for a long long time.

Here’s where we went wrong. While only wanting what we earned, we don’t want anyone who for whatever reason didn’t do quite as much earning to be greeted by anything but a great big “Keep Out!” sign at the gates leading to this world of “what we earned.” It’s OURS God damn it – we earned it! End of discussion. Oh really. The thousands of years of struggle and suffering which led humanity up to the time and place where we could “earn our own way with nobody’s help, thank you very much” got kind of lost along the way in the great fog of time. As did the folks who were in our world first and had to be cleared out of our way. Comedian Robert Colbert, on the old Colbert Report, asked why God put our oil under their (the Arab’s) land.

Join the discussion or feel free to advocate killing the scapegoats of one’s own projected psychopathy? It is a piss poor metric, but if upvotes indicate anything it is a deep seated hatred of the other that is not up for discussion. How is anybody supposed to ‘discuss’ anything with such an underlying current of animosity and antipathy? FWIW: we all share in the same set of problems that were mostly inherited psychopathy. The ‘them v us’ psychosis is the root cause of all totalitarianism. The constant litany of fear is becoming febrile. Whether or not we have crossed the rubicon of the next wave of fascism is yet to be revealed, but ‘we’ sure are in some haste to catalyse the process. FWIW: I thought the article was excellent.

I agree with your stance. We only want what we’ve worked for and have paid our taxes for. Nothing unreasonable about this. However, your plea for mercy will never be heard by those addressed. Our governments do not represent the people who voted them in. They represent the lobbyists of all those who refuse to listen to what we, the majority, want. We will never get anywhere by continuing with the farce of voting. I’m at a loss as to how to get out from under their dominion. I hear a lot about building our own world without their system of oppression and exploitation. But how, if the majority of us, the TV-watching couch potatoes, don’t even recognise that they are slaves to this system and continue to comply? They will continue to uphold the corrupt and toxic medical pararadigm, they will continue to march into war for the banksters… Read more »

In the US even if someone “wins” an election, it’s meaningless. First, there’s no law that says he has to do what he promised. Second, for example, the Pentagon can ignore him entirely for 4 years, but he may not care, may be happy just to sit there & get grift for his relatives. To me, the 2016 election was “stolen” because the person I voted for for pres. accomplished none of the things he promised in order to get my vote (except moving the embassy to Jerusalem). He either flip flopped or was simply ignored. In 2017 Congress removed all Russia matters from him. He knew if he wanted to stay politics, he’d have to surrender to Lindsey Graham, and he did. He went on tv to announce he’d changed his mind, now thinks endless wars in Middle East are necessary. In the US, the two main political parties… Read more »

The problem isn’t who promises what and how they deliver or don’t deliver on their promises.

The great unending problem with American politics is that NO candidate EVER promises to maintain a scrupulous fidelity to the US Constitution. Vis-a-vis that “Wall” specifically, the President-Elect SHOULD HAVE SAID he would ask Congress to authorize its construction. But then he would truly have been “laughed off the stage.”

The Constitution is best defined as That Which We Pay Lip Service To. Any candidate who says as his or her or their campaign slogan “Constitution First, Last and Always” might end up with 3 votes.

The American people love the ubiquitous “Wink Wink” from their candidates. As in “I will uphold the Constitution – Wink Wink!”

“We only want what we’ve worked for and have paid our taxes for” Let’s put this into an economic perspective corresponding to reality, as opposed to hallucinatory delusion. “With everything stated at constant 2023 values, reported global GDP has expanded by $88 trillion over the past twenty years. But this has been accompanied – indeed, made possible – by a $290tn increase in debt, the latter accounting for only half of an estimated $580tn escalation in broader liabilities over the same period.” That what Tim Morgan says, and I have no reason not to trust the figures, but one doesn’t even have to do that. Unless a person is a total fucking moron, everybody is aware of the massive debt amassed by just about every entity on Earth, ranging from individuals to governments. That debt is financial debt, money, only, and does not correspond to the actual physical debt that… Read more »

Lets look at the impossibility of your task, if one does the math, they shall find that just in order to pay down their own share of the public debt, every person would have to work free, while still providing for them selves, for a year. (not to mention their own private debt, which is directly related to the cost of living in the first place).

That is the crime, that is why the people have a right to be upset, once you are born you are not free, you come attached with the burden that the past never had, you are really a sleeping slave to money, ready to be woken up and get angry at something, pretty much like you are right now.

You could say that until some two decades ago, when the Internet took off to provide easy access to media outlets all over the world and allowed everybody to be a citizen journalist and report live and voice opinions, the overall perception of the world was shaped by the mainstream media, the papers, TV, radio, all operated by mostly regime-friendly hacks. They created a perception of the West as a benevolent, human rights observing, freedom-loving community, the land of sophistication, greater good, a sort of paradise. The rest of the world was either portrayed as primitive, savage, underdeveloped, antagonistic, or ignored completely, save for occasions when it needed to be demonized for the occasional invasion a.k.a. war to install democracy. That’s, naturally, complete bullshit. The fact is that our empire is extremely aggressive and ruthless. Kills indiscriminately anyone who dares protest. And we all profit from that.

We are OWED by those who exploit us! “Between 1950 and 2000, the population of the United States increased 86 percent, from 151 million to 281 million. Over the same 50 years, US GDP soared 3,239 percent, from $294 billion to $9,817 billion. In other words, the production of wealth grew 38 times faster than the population. Poverty results from the way society is organized. Volume of Food Production vs Population Growth: Over the past 30 years, food production has consistently outpaced population growth. In 2008, record food production was accompanied by widespread food riots. Even at the height of the 2008 food crisis, when the number of seriously malnourished people rose to 963 million – almost one in every seven people on the planet  Poverty is caused by inequality and exploitation, not overpopulation: The problem is not too many hungry bellies, but that food is sold for profit, and too many… Read more »

When I got over it (as you did then), and as I regained my self confidence, and I sometimes had some luck, I was the loner, 24 and there is so much more, with heart of gold….I didn’t need to fly to New York. Shortly later Neil Young turned up in England. My life became a series of falling in love, and then getting blown away.

Canada is certifiably the best place in the world (at least that’s what they regurgitate in the papers as far back as I can remember). Peaceful place with plentiful natural resources, a bit cold in the winter, but hot in the summer. All things considered and averaged, one would be hard-pressed to find a better place. Quebec being the cherry on top of the cake, benefiting from the French language that offsets the tedious obdurate omnipresence of English elsewhere on the continent.

Never mind about THEM. What’s OUR pie chart? Get off the financial system – which can be done overnight, en masse.

Many people live on close to nothing everyday, but they dont have to get off the system to do it, I suggest you hitch your wagon to a star.
