I used to read voraciously and keep up with a lot.

I can’t seem to focus for very long. I focused for 9-16 hours straight before without even getting the munchies.

It feels futile frankly. The corruption is so deep it’s overwhelming.

Did you go through this? Is anyone past it yet?

Biz colleagues say volume is down 70% or more. A complete stall.

Yeah I've been that way since 2019 at least. That's why I welcomed getting laid off from the Woke Enterprise, and am getting back into Trade work mostly Electrical. As flooring(my original trade as a youngster before the Computer Code bug bit me) is too brutal for someone over 50.

I have definitely scaled back on my politics consumption. I’m more convinced now than ever before that it’s a big shell game for the rubes while the real decisions are made by people who’ve never been elected to anything and we may never know their names.
My other theory is that a rogue AI has “escaped” and has been carrying out various missions around the world. A thing like the Plandemic and the vax promotion campaign was so incredibly coordinated that it would have taken a sky scraper full of paper pushers to do it. This shit was GLOBAL, and touched every state and country and province around the world. We even got poor fucking Africans to mask and lockdown for a virus which posed them little to no risk. Hundreds of thousands of kids starved to death in lockdown in some poor as fuck nations. It was a complete disaster, but a very coordinated one.
That would take a tremendous number of complicit people, or one AI. Then each job in the Plandemic could be compartmentalized so each worker only knew what they were doing and not anything close to the whole picture. Which would keep them firmly on Team Vax and not recoiling in horror at the destruction they were helping to unleash in the human race.

I'm not demoralized, I just don't have the energy for more bad shit. Only want to hear about victories.

I blame the spikes. YMMV...

I am slightly optimistic.
Trump beat the media, RINOS, and got shit done while exposing the hypocrisy of the tech assholes.
They reacted and stole an election; but others are fighting against the assholes.
DeSantis, Kari Lake, Trump, even Musk are all fighting back.
It's depressing but the fight will go on.
I'm able to distract myself from politics a little by being in Baja for a while.

My take on 'politics' ...

With the Democrats, you get to the station in a bullet train.

With the Republicans, you get to the same station in a slower moving locomotive.

In either case, you arrive at the very same destination.

Put another way; you've got two wings flapping on the same bird.

That's why ultimately I have no faith in politics. Trust in Christ and His word. It's the only place where true hope can be found.

Good. People are finally getting to my level of disgust that I was at 20 years ago.

The government is 100 times more corrupt than you realize. "Entrepreneurs" aren't really, they are chosen, picked - selectively helped. MySpace failed - why? It's so much worse than you currently realize.

The oncoming winter season and shorter days sometimes brings on the doldrums. Embrace the cold, put on the knit cap, vest, and get out there and run.

Yes, there is a huge cesspool of shit happening, but that is not your life. Make like the eagle and soar above it.

Yes. Not completely.

Things improved for me when I started to use a CPAP after being diagnosed and treated for severe obstructive sleep apnea. Instead of waking episodes that were in the mid to high 50s per hour I am down to 4 to 6.

Facebook has been blocked in China since 2013

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Censorship_of_Facebook#China

The reason Facebook succeeded is that it was funded and started by In-Tel-Q. It's intelligence. As much as Twitter is involved with the intelligence agencies, so is Facebook. The whole purpose of Facebook began as a project to observe and study the population, and has moved on to propagandize them. Zuckerberg said it himself, "They [his users] trust me" then "Dumb fucks" - YUP. That's exactly what he wrote in an SMS message offering access to the information he accumulated.

They're dead systems. If you want information, you can't get it from Google, Twitter, or Facebook unless the GOVERNMENT wants to feed you that information. You're not going to find out about the coup of Ukraine, you will not find out that Genie Energy FIRST found made an agreement with Israel to mine oil form the Golan BEFORE "Assad gassed his own people", you will NOT ever discover that the Mujahideen and the Taliban are essentially the same group (Taliban is a subset), etc, etc, etc.

They're dead companies. They are mainstream media and you will be HARD PRESSED to find any information there. You'll never find it on Facebook or Twitter, and unless you know PRECISELY what to look for (i.e. you are already aware of it), you're not going to find it on Google either.

Wikipedia isn't much different. Here, I'll give you an example:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nayirah_testimony

So that describes it, but where's the video? There it is:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmfVs3WaE9Y

Why isn't it linked in the Wikipedia article? Everything is there, IF you know what to look for, and also, if you read the Talk section. They don't make it easy to research, and it's TRIVIAL to do that today. These are captured sites. Useless.

@richwicks Wikipedia says the Nayirah testimony was false. What more do I learn by watching the YouTube video or reading the Talk section? What is Wikipedia hiding?

I just spend most time focusing on close to home: volunteering in community, gardening, walking the dogs, helping (not financially though!) family members. Reading books I get from a used bookstore. It's enough to fill up the day and fill up my mind.

Yeah, Yeah, I know: simpletons like me were like that as the Nazis rose to power in the early 1930's. Count me as one of those simpletons.

If you are older, it could be a hormone issue. Hormone's can decrease with age. Be careful on treatment though, as the wrong kind can make things so much worse.

https://the-moneychanger.com/articles/hormone_replacement_therapy_for_men_women

Also consider the toxic buildup from 5g rollout, and if you're diet has not been the best, that can catch up as you age.

If you're just talking about all the bad news, I spent a lot of time being angry and bitter after '08. You get through it eventually. Work towards solution that you can implement in your own life. We all have something to contribute. Even if it's just taking your business to companies that support your views. Gab and Align are good sites for alternative vendors.

Getting old.

I would think so, but I'm still able to provide quick answers and solutions when I'm asked to help solve a problem.
I'm just not inspired to write new code or take on new projects. Mostly I believe because of the uncertainty that the platform, OS or technology will even still be around by time the project is in completion. And also my audience is not a smart phone user. I like designing and creating applications for the desktop with task minded people in mind, that needs a whole suit and slew of commands and options in contextual menus. Software has become so dumbed down, that the intended audience is a moron. I don't write code the lesser common denominator of a group. I never have and never will. It has always been a hill I was willing to die on in meetings on software and requirements gathering.
Everything someone would ask me to degrade the design of the software to accommodate their fear a retard might click this button or misuse the app somehow. I tell them then hire people who can follow instructions. The minute you start writing in the Fred exceptions, Fred's dumber relatives come out of the woodwork, all needing their own alteration done to the project. By time you entertain them all, you have a clunky piece of shit application that takes ten times longer than it should because it was made for slow morons.

Definitely getting old on the physical work side though that I'll fess up. Look at your most cluttered room in your house, with the most furniture, with the most connected components. I used to clear a room out like that on every carpet job I went on. I could have that room stripped down to bare floor with everything out, and the bare floor showing in 20 minutes. It takes me a full weekend to pull everything out of my office give it a good cleaning and put it all back together. I wonder what a beast I was back then.

For me it’s not getting old. It’s more of getting disillusioned.

I'm pointing out that Wikipedia will only admit something after the government admits it.

I'll show you something they are currently hiding now:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_Committee

In the second paragraph, Operation Mockingbird is mentioned. There's no question the CIA was doing it. But look up Operation Mockingbird in Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Mockingbird

Now it's just "alleged".

Wikipedia is as infiltrated as MSNBC is.
