Dear Smart People on Oct 4 2018

by Ewen Shearer | ˜

This is a letter from one of your dull cousins. No, it’s not to complain or ask you to do my homework, and certainly not to insult you. How could I possibly win at that? Nor am I asking for money, though I’d quite like ...

Trojan’s Cusp on Sep 11 2018

by Ewen Shearer | ˜

When Enterprise is Predator Insane forces erode jungles, stifle atmosphere, sterilize oceans, and greedily combat the species-potpourris nurturing them. Worming through neo-classical economics, seducing state and nation to plunder in consumptive frenzy the entire estate of this evanid ecosphere, lunacy of economic growth overwhelms ...

SETI to Search for Intelligent Life on Earth on Nov 14 2013

by Ewen Shearer | ˜

Fifty years of scant results steer researchers to greener pastures. Dr. Larc Nagas, Special Director of SETI’s Forward-planning Committee, today proposed a radical agenda to modify the search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence. He proposed Earth be included in the search for intelligent life. There seems ...

Messiah’s Lament on Oct 27 2011

by Ewen Shearer | ˜

No salvation No redemption Judgment, rapture, nor ascension Should Messiah walk the Earth, the stupor that owns this moment would pay no heed. And the beast that enslaves these times would lash the Redeemer to the ...

Letter from a Blue Planet on Nov 25 2010

by Ewen Shearer | ˜

Paradise in void – Vibrant life exuberant On the razor’s edge. Powerful magnificence, portentous allure, this telluric jewel ranks wondrous, enduring, endearing. Starry blackness eclipsed by resplendent blue-green orb. Arrant hostility, brazen lethality, ...

To Look for America on May 20 2009

by Ewen Shearer | ˜

Have you found America? Lives flow zero-sum to futility pursuing mind ephemera in flickering dim persistence. Media detritus weaves culture to mind-montage, echoing tinnient our frayed and cherished memories. Collaged in colloidal silvered cellulose, ink-smeared headers, crackly acetate audio, American annals precipitate ...

Down Under


Australiana


Ink Irresistable

Not the NYT Montaigne's what would I know? Huxley's almost anything about almost everything. Or Bierce and nothing matters. Codifying life's inimitable impromptu inclines irrestistably to essay.

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.

A Century of Imperialism

American foreign policy never a pretty sight, finesse of the mobile crane chase from Terminator 3. Export democracy? Cure worse than disease. double arrow Read more ..

Charity

~ its own reward

And what's going on in Land of the Free, Home of the Brave? As 40% of kids fail graduation the Iraqistan wars suck $2.4 trillion [CBO 2017 est]. Imagine this staggering sum applied to rebuilding The Great Society. Think of others.

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.

Munch Montage


Painters, such a sad old bunch

A meme took flight to never tire.
