Child Wrong   Nov 5 2003

Filed under feature, Serendipity by Ewen Shearer

Cowering in the afterglow of nuclear fear, a child – progeny of Western scientific democracy in the most egalitarian of lands – keenly anticipated twenty-first century utopia.

Youthful optimism believed one more lifespan (his own) would complete a work begun when modern humans gasped in awe at the beauty of their first dawn.

Our eyes are the eyes through which the Earth finally beholds her own beauty" – Teilhard de Chardin

Well, here we are!

Despite the vast, intelligent, resilient, infinitely patient grazing herd’s signaled desire to be left alone in their civilizing quest, the planet is still servant to besuited crime lords, illiterate holy men, moral and political imbeciles, and opinionated ideologues, playing their selfish brutal games.

Lacking a cape and the ability to fly unaided, one can but poke fun at the morally bereft creatures that corrupt our lives.

Civilization ..

   defiles itself


Times past when warlords, priests and royalty hoarded luxury, life was a short grim struggle. Today most want for little yet still deny dignified survival to working poor, and ravage entire countries as collateral to our laissez faire fiesta.

This lazy unemployed

..crack-smoking welfare queen ran up U$15 trillion debt

lazy homeless scum
Odd how the ultra-wealthy gull even working poor to blame unemployed, disabled, weak, and vulnerable while but for the grace of God go all.

If he's a welfare leech then your soul is with the sociopaths and predators who own Warshington and its minions, the Repugnicans and Dumfocrats, gutting a once noble nation that aspired to equality.

This elite will survive the US economic train wreck, land softly on 300 million plundered taxpayers, then from fortresses of luxury and privilege prey elsewhere for spoils.

The dawn of civilization was greatly exaggerated.
