Elastic logic thinning grows delicate to marvels. Fine argument at finest disembroils the ravelled choking maze of caution. The sudden of the slow is bred, the curious of the common. Into the sceptic fog that mists infraction from the chronic rule stumbles intelligence a-rage to find the unthought wanton thought and, self-confounding, think it.

The world is toxic.

Only in those most secluded places, amongst those most worthy of persons, of peoples, untainted by global mass indoctrination, mass capitulation, mass hysteria, is there yet harmlessness, does safety yet remain.

Capitalism is toxic. An economic system in which private individuals and businesses own, produce, and dominate capital goods and services, based on manipulated supply and demand in the general market, for their own profit, favouring those who have at the expense of those who have not, is as virulent as it is inhumane.

Democracy, in its current manifestation, toxic. Democracy is only feasible in a society which grants benefit to each according to her or to his need, balancing, and thus rendering equitable, the greater social equation, by withholding from those whose surplus, when either voluntarily or mandatorily surrendered, serves to achieve that equilibrium. Needless to convey, the States Once-United of America has never been a democracy, except in its original conception, with its Declaration of Independence – its creators, adherents of the Enlightenment, believing that the greatest good should go to the greatest number. As early as the drafting of its Constitution, élitism already raising its ugly head, the dream of equality began to veer off course.

The Abrahamic religions – all three of them – toxic. Fundamentalist evangelicalism, in the SOUA, and all other autocratic, extremist, fascistic, hands-in-the-pockets-and-in-the-crotches-of-politicians, so-called Trojan horse of feigned spirituality, all of them are malignant, pernicious, to their cores.

All governments, all parties, all unions, all unifications, toxic. American financial interests, as represented by Wall Street; by debt pimps and whores, and their misguided johns – toxic. Autocratic government-subsidised big business, big pharmaceuticals, big agriculture, and big energy, all at the expense of the people, the environment, the planet – toxic.

Immediate gratification, toxic. Consumption that flatters taste but feeds not – toxic. Embellishment that compliments ego but enhances not – toxic. Remedy that pledges cure only to mollify hypocrisy – toxic.

Intolerance, indifference, complacence, hatred, inequality, prejudice, discrimination – all toxic.

Stress and anxiety, and their crimes of desperation, brought on by the denial of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness by community, class, church, and state – toxic.

The domination and definition of value and values demanded and dictated by one gender, one race, one ethnicity, one sexual orientation, one party, one religion, one socio-economic class – toxic.

The Corona Virus – toxic.

Its origin, really – not China, really, except in its efforts to emulate the path of the misguided West, to compromise its values to resemble those of the imprudent West, to render itself in closer proximity with the deluded West – the heart, the epicentre, of all the above deceptions, the States Once-United of America.

A reckoning is upon us all. The instrument of that judgement, punishment, retribution, damnation is a virus. That virus – greed, gluttony, insatiability, covetousness, selfishness. That which you do not have, you have no need of now. Still grasping that which is not yours to hold, to claim, to possess? Suffer, then, the ravages of your own malfeasance.

Despite and still, there is no need to panic. Rest assured, only that which is yours to bear, will you be given to endure. In the end, we all get precisely what we deserve, both good and bad. In the end, there is binding and accounting.

If nothing changes, nothing changes. It is not too late. Or maybe it is. The choice is yours. Choose to be now, or then; was, or is; here, or gone.

Welcome to The Purge.
