PJ Watson hears a death knell. I'm hoping it is maybe just a wake up call (because we're talking about it, so that's the beginning of self-awareness, right?)

Watched it. He’s probably right. The only question is how far down do we collapse?
Also, will some technological breakthrough save us, restoring our hope? Or will successive technologies just hasten our downfall? The first option is pretty unlikely, while the second is occurring as we speak.

Cultural prophets have emerged, the Isaiahs, Jeremiahs, and Nehemiahs warning us to repent, to turn around, to build the wall.
But they are being actively ignored, opposed by all “right thinking people,” censored, shut down, and attacked daily for daring to speak truth to the glassy-eyed masses.

We are being slow boiled over generations, crazy is being normalized over a long enough time period that people don't snap until its to late.

How can I assist in bringing down this fubar?
Just waiting for everyone's status quo set of living arrangements to collapse.
Nothing like a good herd thinning for those that don't have a clue about having to live a physical life for all their needs. One won't be able to hit a keyboard & have things delivered to their door.

So many don't know anything about carrying all their water from a well or stream for all their uses,using & maintaining an outhouse,slaughtering their own farm raised meat & storing it without electricity,working a garden to feed themselves & bartering with neighbors.
It may not get that inconvenient for pussies,it could get worse. U may have to do similar thing,fully prepared to fend off gun loving enemies 24/7.
Technology is nice,it does not prevent one from having to face reality.
No experience makes it hard to prepare.

My brother-in-law has different variations : It's might get bad before it gets fucking awful.

Dumb,young,whippersnappers!

Truer than you probably realize.

While I have no argument with the OP and his presentation, I do have additional relevant thoughts. Realize that the United States is dominating the globe. Also remember it has been proven that the government of the United States does not represent her electorate. The government of the United States EXCLUSIVELY represents the wealth and military might.

Further it has been shown to my satisfaction that every dirty rotten trick the government of the United States has pulled on vulnerable countries that possess something our rich people want ENDS UP GETTING PULLED ON US TOO.

With me so far?

Switch the subject to walls. OMG If walls were so great at controlling borders our military contractors would be providing walls to their customer instead of more nuanced border control systems. Why is nobody providing data about walls? THE DATA EXISTS GODDAMMIT! Our media is just acting like it's nothing more than a big argument that polarizes everybody into right wing lunatics and libtards.

Walls walls walls. They are reeeeeally great at controlling your own population for like 10,000 years now, along with all the added enforcement, surveillance and military which is coming back to haunt us forevermore. Plus they establish a clear sign as to who shall control and who shall be UNDER control.

Once we finish handing over the last remaining wealth to the rich we will find out what trickles down. AND THE TRICKLE DOWN IS FUCKING WALLS!!!

In the mean time the more faithful right-wingers are keeping the faith in that sweet trickle down dream and as they lose their jobs and find out that the jobs all disappeared to cheaper and cheaper and cheaper labor and they are now financially irrelevant, loaded with lifetime of hopeless debts, they will take that rage, that sense of self righteousness, that toxic masculinity and become the next mass shooters OF THE OTHER POOR PEOPLE. --all while EXACTLY TWO TAXPAYER SUBSIDIZED WALL CARTELS build fortifications around he gentle rich people who merely "own things."

Are you Eloi or Morlock LOL?

Trickle down.

So now the solution to global warming is unveiled.

The solution is FUCK YOU on the wrong side of the wall.

A similar solution here is implied to nuclear war, terror, unemployment and a whole host of failures of the wealthy to care about the population

Again the solution is FUCK YOU on the wrong side of the wall.

Oh yes, and while you nerds are still working you are the ones who get to PAY FOR THE FUCKING WALLS WITH YOUR TAXES ... thinking that you are doing it to protect yourselves and your jobs from brown skinned people or some shit like that.

What threatens us immediately is not a collapse as in: we go back to the farm and kill each other for food.
What threatens is the lack of scientific progress, a rising idiocracy, the rise of idiotic narratives governing millions, the spread of various religious dogmas. Stagnation. Degenerescence.
Only then will we be in danger of collapse.

Elon Musk is right: we need to shoot for Mars, or at least space colonization.
Not only as backup, but as purpose.

Ohhhh but we can't do that because Left Handed Lesbian Midget Half-Albanian Eskimo Muslims in Hijabs are still being microaggressed in Colleges, Companies, and everywhere!

Also, sending a Phallus Rocket to Mars, the God of War, that reeks of Toxic Masculinity and Objectivity is Male Subjectivity.

Where's the tax cut and deregulation of financial services markets that have to come in to make everything perfect?

Oh this has been commented on and documented to death for at least 20 years now. I remember seeing stuff like this in the '90s.

It's worse today.

Reagan back in the 80s brought everything back on track.

Ever since Obama culture has been going down hill.

Yet it was like a revelation when I put together the connection between our descent and government tax funded wall builders.

Another example, one that Trump himself has been hinting at since a couple years ago: This works to end the infrastructure problem too. If private money is invested to repair existing infrastructure via the miracle of privatization, pennies on the dollar purchase price, we will be hemmed in more or less like walls existed because only upper class people will be able to afford the tolls to drive somewhere on vacations and to enjoy natural beauty of places which are now reserved for the public as national forests and monuments. --all this, and other cool shit will stop being wasted on us freeloaders and start becoming optimal cashflow investments to be enjoyed by those who can afford it.

Private Public Partnerships are all fucking scams.

The Public's liability is unlimited, but most of the gains go to the Private Investors. If no gains, it all devolves on the taxpayer.

What we have here is a country who has decided that it would be better off catering to only the wealthy instead of all this egalitarian bullcrap that out forefathers used to prattle on about.

Let the winners have the prize, and let the losers work if they can and die off if they need medical attention or get to be too expensive.

That is a natural result of centralization. If central gov't would be very weak, like in Switzerland, PTB's would have very hard time buying off all States. But WE need to enforce OUR will on everyone, hence centralization which leads to current clusterfuck.

@cmdrdataleak Excellent video, I agree with all of it.

Sounds like we are rediscovering essentially the same things that Ibn Khaldun discovered in in the 1300's: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muqaddimah
