What most people call normality was the dream world of the 1930s and 1940s through the 1980s being “a better time”. When reality is thought of, what do we think of? Mom, Apple Pie and Sweet Sovereign Capitalist America? Well, that whole “normal thing” was the genuine dream world that never really existed.
I, with so many of the rest of you wish at times that really existed even for a genuine moment in history. In reality, though, it never has. It is mythology like the fables of Aesop or the tales of Homeric glory, really.
The other day I was watching ninety to one-hundred year old soldiers from “The Greatest Generation of World War II” on television hoping they were really fighting for those values I am alluding to in those previous paragraphs, hoping so hard that reality showed on their faces in their old age, while the genuine “glory mongers” who knew what was really going on, for the most part went on to the next world right down to Richard Nixon and Bob Dole. Indeed, capitalism and apple pie greatness is a dream world invented like “The Matrix” to ‘keep the suckers pacified and all right with it all while getting fleeced by the reality that they are sheep to the slaughter, and not exactly human to the powers that be’. Men like Richard Nixon and Bob Dole, and all the Masters of War glory mongers were human beings to the powers that be because they could function in reality knowing what it really is without going genuinely crazy and horribly flinching or rebelling, but reveling in the evil that is considered the warped good of this reality.
I remember a movie with actors Clint Eastwood, Donald Sutherland, Telly Savalas and Carroll O’Connor called “Kelly’s Heroes” that actually showed a parody-like reality of what would happen if the “little guy” really understood what the “big guys” were doing and pulling. Understand the full message of that movie, and you get the real message of this article. The history books are for the “big guys” and the “little guys” that escape the dream world of those “big guys” history books end up disgusted exploiters and Reality Winner (the multi language Middle-East translator and code breaker turned nonconformist and “criminal leaker” that was on 60 Minutes a night before this writing) type traitors out for themselves and out to screw the glory mongering “big guys” every sleeping “little guy” reveres and wants to be like until they make it there as a “big guy” and realizes: “Damn, it is not all it seems, is it?” To be honest, white-hat loser/black-hat winners like me are where the hoax ends. That would have been true of Malcolm X, JFK, RFK, James Earl “Jimmy” Carter, Jr., John Thomas Grinder, Jr., Richard Wayne Bandler and every other “little guy” including Jesus and Gandhi who really wants better and to change things like me and is woke to it all for real, in reality. Woke is not a religion, it is a reality whose time has come and is coming. So, I end with a question: We all love to win, but who really wants to do it honestly without shortcuts, cheating or “dirty tricks” like the white-hat normally approved winners/black-hat normally approved loser news anchors, politicians, talking heads, game players, glory mongers and technological trick pulling jokers of the “glorious” establishment. Gee, this has been “pathetic and maligned” Brand X speaking. The past does not equal the future, we live in the present forever always. That is all I wanted to say in this article without flinching.
