Making Way For Idiots.

Making Way For Idiots.

This world is getting very stupid and we might die wondering if this was the plan.



Life is like a waiting room and our true purpose is dying.” lamsojellyofu

Death is pretty much central to everything these days. If you think about it, our entire existence is based on not dying. Why else would we stuff kale down our throats, wear sunscreen, or let some guy in a white coat examine our testicles?

If it isn’t to avoid death, what is it?

It makes me wonder, though. Is it possible God doesn’t give a fig about our eating habits or who grabs our balls? What if death is inevitable because Earth — or Earth as we know it — is really just a clearing house?

Is death simply a way to make room for more idiots?

We can’t ignore this possibility. There’s just too much idiocy today to think it’s a coincidence. God obviously put idiots on this Earth for a reason.

The thing is, do we get that reason. We see idiocy, we even vote for idiocy, yet we don’t believe idiocy is actually good. That may be the problem.

What if idiocy is good?

So much of what’s happening today supports this assumption.

Over in Russia, Putin keeps telling us Ukraine belongs to them. He’s even willing to risk WWIII to prove his point. Thousands have died. Thousands more will live with this insanity, including Russians.

Believe it or not, many Russians don’t know what denazification is or why they’re committing genocide to achieve it.

And with these deaths comes the realization that we can’t stop it.

We talk about sanctions, yet the very countries that want sanctions still buy their energy from Russia.

This, in turn, fuels the very war they want to prevent.

And, sure, this war has produced heroes, but what is a hero? Someone like Zelinskyy who’s seen as a “good leader”?

To his credit, he’s rallied Ukrainians to fight the injustice of a country threatening their democracy.

What does that mean, exactly?

It still doesn’t change the number of deaths, or the country’s destruction.

It also doesn’t alter the fact that Putin, despite having over 10,000 charges of genocide and atrocities against him so far, probably won’t spend a day in prison, or be forced to pay reparations.

The question is, has Putin, with all his destruction and death, done the world a favour by making room for more idiots?

This is where we get into the weeds.

It’s like saying the coronavirus was — and is — God’s work. I don’t know about that. Based on how we’ve ignored science, and filled the ICUs, you have to wonder if we’re really just a clearing house for ourselves.

Covid could’ve been stopped two years ago with strict mandates. But democracies don’t work that way. We respect the will of the people.

So the mandates were dropped.

Millions more died.

Were our politicians making room for idiots as well?

Then there’s climate change.

For years now, the IPCC (a United Nations advisory panel consisting of 195 countries) says we’re about ten years away from doing irreversible damage to our planet.

Countless international sessions have taken place, with countries accepting or backing out of commitments depending on who’s in office.

Trump backed out of the Paris Agreement because he’s backed out of most things.

The Paris Agreement set goals to reduce carbon output. Trump said it would put an untold burden on the American economy. He also told his constituents fossil fuels could—and can—be burned cleanly.

“Coal, beautiful coal,” he told his loyal followers in Pennsylvania.

It’s hard to blame Trump. He knows nothing about coal — or the Paris Agreement, for that matter.

China’s president for life, Xi Jinping, on the other hand, knows plenty about coal. His country has over 1,190 coal-burning plants with two hundred more on the way.

Here’s the irony in all this.

While China burns coal like nobody’s business, it’s also the world’s largest producer of wind and solar energy, and the largest exporter of renewable energy products.

So while China is killing its own people (over 100 million adults have COPD), it’s helping other nations move to alternative energy sources.

Is Xi Jinping clearing the way for more idiots, too?

Only time will tell, but it’s worth thinking about.

Meanwhile, 65% of Africa is suffering from Covid. The World Health Organization promises to vaccinate them all, but today only 15% African peoples have had at least one shot.

Here’s the problem if that’s the case: Many flight restrictions are now being lifted, meaning individuals—including those from Africa—can move about freely without long quarantine periods.

If mandates continue to be lifted or ignored, it’s only a matter of time before the sixth wave turns into new mutations. These mutations—or variants—could be a lot more lethal and a lot less treatable.

You could say we’re back where we started with overloaded hospitals (think of Shanghai) with thousands—possibly millions—dying as a result.

Well, maybe that’s the plan.

There’s an old saying that God takes care of “idiots and drunks.”

That covers a vast territory, including the plastic corridors of Congress.

It’s hard to know where we’re going from here, but certainly the idiots aren’t nearly as worried as the rest of us. They continue to refuse vaccines, claiming its their constitutional right.

And, just as often, they find themselves in ICUs, saying, with their last dying breath, “I’ll take the vaccine now.”

We can call this a tragedy.

Then again, if it’s true that God takes care of “idiots and drunks,” it’s really the drunks we have to think about.

The idiots are dying. They’re already making way for other idiots.

The drunks hang in there.

That may, in fact, be the new circle of life.

Again, who knows?

The problem with idiots, Rob, would appear to go back some 12,000 yrs, when Homo Non-Sapiens unthinkingly went down the path of the agricultural revolution, and we idiotically convinced ourselves that domesticating wheat would make life simpler than our previous hunter-gatherer ways. This was the slow start to living in towns and cities and the population boom, whereby we produced more idiots. Ever since we’ve been fighting against: 

• crop failure and famine due to variable climate, ignored by our idiotic leaders; 

• epidemics due to living closer than a few metres from each other in massive numbers, permitting idiots to prevail; and 

• war, due to us all coveting our neighbour’s metaphorical wheat fields, and permitting the aggressive idiots among us to act like bullies. 

If you must point the finger, blame wheat … and the idiots … and we’re all idiots.
