Meltdown of the Collective
As I trawl my favourite and popular blogs and websites I notice it, that tumble into the abyss. What has happened?
Why are bloggers going berserk?
Why are people queuing up to buy the most overt bullshit out there?
Where ever I look I see people full of anger, FEAR, and hate, and they want me to feel the same. I refuse to go down that road. By the skin of my teeth… I’m holding on!
The New World Order is being ushered in by the Elite controllers of the planet and there is nothing I can do about it?
The Jews control Hollywood and the world banks and there is nothing I can do about it.
The Paedophiles really are controlling the governments of the planet and there is nothing I can do about it?
But there are also aliens from Zeta Reticuli working with the American government.
The Twin Towers did not collapse because of two passenger airliners?
Obama is a paid actor, working for the Elite?
The moon is really the Death Star.
At this year’s Olympics there is going to be a major terrorist attack.
At this year’s Olympics the Rapture will take place.
An asteroid is going to crash into the Earth in 2013?
There is a two thousand year-old pink leprechaun living in the hollow Earth? (Okay, I confess I made that one up.)
Every absurd thing, every conspiracy your mind can think up is real, okay?
There are lies and negativity everywhere on the Internet and there are shocking and horrifying things going on right now, as I type this post. Again I am told there is nothing I can do about any of this.
That's the BIG LIE because there is a lot that I can do about it.
People don’t seem to realise that by repeating these stories, theories, accounts, and evidence, they make it so, they bring it into being, they spread the FEAR, and they manifest it into the real ‘material world’.
By all means feed the monster and sit back and watch it grow. Say, ‘Yes, I believe in your absurd accusations – I believe it all, every single word and I am scared, real scared!’
Soon enough there will not be much left for the monster to consume, except you and me.
So, what am I going to do about it? Am I going to continue absorbing and accepting this mind-numbing ‘meta-reality’?
I am not hiding under a rock and pretending that the world is full of hearts and flowers, some of these theories do have merit. But whenever I read a story intended to spread ANGER, FEAR, and HATE, I am shouting at the top of my voice, ‘I don’t accept your shit, I have the power, and you don’t scare me anymore!’
I have written for the culture, entertainment, and travel sectors, both on-line and in the local press.
For over twenty years my day-job consisted of slugging away, making other people rich, in the world's most ruthless, yet strangely boring and inept corporate finance environments. That includes international banking, new-IT, and advertising.
As freelance writer, and critic, in my spare time, I help run a workshop for local writers. I am still writing the on-line movie review blog ‘Celluloid Seduction’, hanging around a lot of the entertainment sites in the process.
After the devastating and unsolved death of my younger brother on 09/09/1994, I now attempt to exorcise feelings of powerlessness, and loss, that plague my psyche, by creating modern literal performance poetry, using traditional rhythmic forms, following in the footsteps of my late grandfather, the Cypriot 'Red Village' poet 'Vasilis'.
I have many interests including the cinema, music, writing of all kinds, political and religious debate, new and weird science and the occult, plus a lot of other things that just don't fit in this box.
This blog is full of memories and opinion and observations. Feel free to quote me, but please respect me enough to credit 'Marie from Cyprus' on anything you repeat.
Thanks for dropping by!
