Be Wary

So we have found our latest prophet; the man of the moment who will save us all from the monster of censorship; the man who will release our souls from our self-made chains and shower our tongues with roses.
We shall be free, our internet, our speech – sing the hymns of praise!

I refer of course to the man who can do no wrong, Mr. Elon Musk. Yes, you sir, who are being called to take multitudes of bows in front of your fawning audience. He is our man, the man for us, the simple, the poor, the silenced, the speechless, the cowed and the cowardly.
Of course, he is nothing like us.
There is nothing redeeming in a man who chooses to live the life of a miser and confuses his self-made state with actual poverty. He could buy a house at any given second if he wanted to; his girlfriend could stop eating peanut butter if she liked. Unlike the real poor who are genuinely happy, they aren’t being rained on through the roof of their leaky car and Skippy is their dinner. They don’t have a choice. It is beyond cruel for someone with more money than a small nation to tell us that he has to sleep on a couch. He doesn’t have to. He chooses to. There is a difference. His children won’t go to some rotten public school where the mites have to share books. They won’t walk ten miles to the nearest well though he could make them do so if he chose to.

So he bought Twitter and we all fall over ourselves in our joy because he is going to scare

Anyone who DOES NOT AGREE with well, the other bunch.

The stupidity of this of course is we chose to go along with the censorship. We chose to let others temper our words and we let others tell us what is hateful. Now we simply reverse the positions and can become THEM with the same absurdity and ridiculousness. It is someone else’s turn now to play the part of the righteous.
We went along with it all these years and now we have created a saviour out of a man who, his principles aside, did it because HE COULD AFFORD TO. We were perfectly capable of saving speech ourselves but we chose instead to spend a decade bantering about who is right and who is wrong and with each new outrage against our perceived freedom we chose to clap a hand over our own mouths. Everyone went along with it. If you can express yourself in 280 characters then why not try it in 2800? Or how about 280 actual words? Why do you allow yourself to be limited in how much you can say?

Like any other millionaire, billionaire, trillionaire who claim their motivations are purely altruistic, all they do is for the good of mankind, I would like to remind you all, this is how we got into this mess in the first place by believing the rich and powerful must be by default, good leaders instead of the money-hungry beasts they really are, who can control every aspect of our lives, with a snippity-snap of their fingers. Speech has been turned into a weapon, a commodity that can be bartered and sold, it has turned into exactly what we let it become. What we really need is to have our heads examined. We need to stop reading 1984 and watching the Hunger Games and focus for a change, on what our reality actually is. We should turn our backs on anyone professing to save us, and decide for once to save ourselves without the supposed help of the all-powerful. The truly kind-hearted and genuinely concerned do not need a platform to tell you all about how good they are. They just peaceably do their best and expect no reward.

My vision for a world does not interest anyone, I don’t have 268 billion in my account. If I did, everyone would sit up and listen. My opinions however are low value and currently traded for free and even if they are of sound mind, no one will listen to me; I don’t have the requisite number of followers nor do I possess a Twitter account. I worship at no one’s altar and everything I think I owe only to myself. For once, decide for yourself before you jump on the next rich man’s bandwagon. Or anyone else’s.

Post office clerks put up signs saying "Position Closed"
And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coats
And janitors padlock the gates
For security guards to patrol
And bachelors phone up their friends for a drink
While the married ones turn on a chat show
And they'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow
"Gentlemen time please, you know we can't serve anymore",
Now the traffic lights change to stop, when there's nothing to go
And by five o'clock everything's dead
And every third car is a cab
And ignorant people sleep in their beds
Like the doped white mice in the college lab
And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
The needle returns to the start of the song
And we all sing along like before
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow
Telephone exchanges click while there's nobody there
The Martians could land in the car park and no one would care
Closed-circuit cameras in department stores
Shoot the same movie every day
And the stars of these films neither die nor get killed
Just survive constant action replay
And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
The needle returns to the start of the song
And we all sing along like before
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow
And bill hoardings advertise products that nobody needs
While "Angry from Manchester" writes to complain about all the repeats on TV
Computer terminals report some gains in the values of copper and tin
While American businessmen snap up Van Goghs
For the price of a hospital wing
And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
The needle returns to the start of the song
And we all sing along like before
And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
They'll burn down the synagogues at six o'clock
And we'll all go along like before
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow.

  1. The following commentary applies in both locations i believe!

    Funny that you ask that question Eva! I was awakened early after only a few hours’ sleep and I really needed it I thought; but I needed to do some thinking more, and my thinking isn’t linear but resembles a Ping-Pong ball at times and this was one of them! It started with searching out a particular Scripture to ponder further and simultaneously I had been running through my mind since heading to bed this intro!

    But I immediately jumped into a query about the man of the hour around the globe at least to many of the to me guppies or groupies that are star struck or mesmerized by the material success and brain power of Elon Musk! He is not going to save human civilization or the human species which he has so much input lately about with all of his talk about we humans seeking the universe or colonizing it as he says we could do! He overlooks the start reality of the absurdity of such conjecture but he did say how AI is dangerous and is becoming vastly more intelligent than human beings. so we don’t only have nuclear weapons or biological warfare to be concerned with but now an up and coming cyborg form of life that may very well decided to take us all out as being an inferior enemy and big problem; very much the concept played out in fantastical Sci-fi novels and movies like Terminator or Blade Runner futuristic yarns! Well we are a huge problem but the fundamental difference is I know God created us for His plan and not Elon’s or any man-made one and time to get with the real program is running out for humanity to decide if it loves God our Maker or itself and even incomplete material existence more!

    To me its way too simple and to your question I say Jesus Christ was a carpenter not some king of materialism; which I know works totally to our detriment or against us, or some big shot of some kind in the workings of this planet according to mankind, they actually rejected Him. I think Marcus would have taken the humble path and not proceeded to become a big deal or an ancient Elon because he had Wisdom and connected to God’s fundamentals of purpose and plan and those are nothing like these foolish human contrived concoctions that so many people are spewing with Elon; to me that is all horse shit! Marcus being the officer in a foreign land is what he would have proceeded onto because that is keeping with God’s purpose and plan as it is said;
    “14But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? For everything comes from You, and from Your own hand we have given to You. 15For we are foreigners and strangers in Your presence, as were all our forefathers. Our days on earth are like a shadow, without hope. 16O LORD our God, from Your hand comes all this abundance that we have provided to build You a house for Your holy Name, and all of it belongs to You.” 1 Chronicles 29: 14-16

    When a most dear human being to me passed away and I was at the hospital to say my last goodbye just seconds before I went home asking God to help me see this all the way I should and I was told later that as soon as I walked out of that hospital room and shut the door that loved one drew a last breath; and I’m certain what happened or how it played out, because of our strong faith and love, was meant to be! But when I got home I picked up my bible sitting next to my bed and had just begun to cry a bit all along thinking I should be strong taking heart in God’s plan and purposes; but as I was asking God with all my heart to help me. I went to open the Bible and it just fell open in my hands to a page containing this Scripture!

    John 14:1-3 Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”

    To this I must add what came to my mind as I was watching some documentary or news clips of interviews with Elon since waking, because I know these things are not coincidence and this is how I sum up this whole dissertation I’ve made.

    “14I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one. 15Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh, the desires of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not from the Father but from the world.” 1 John 2:14-16

    Eva I don’t get impressed by any human beings anymore and I know I’m right to not put hope in anyone other than my actual Savior Jesus; as this life is fleeting away and will end for all humans along with the material plane, and trying to see it in any different way is an exercise in futility; like shoveling water!

  2. I was sleepy obviously; but Elon overlooked the Stark reality not start! These are just my opinions and observations of this mixed up world Friend; so take them with a grain of salt by all means!

  3. This is well written. I find it bothersome that in the circles I travel, everyone is so desperate for a hero they make idols of every Tom, Dick and Moron that says anything remotely good. Trump, Musk, Biden, Bernie Bloody Sanders – all the same showboaters best I can tell. The grassroots remain. Thanks for posting this.
