Did you ever think you'd live to see Mad Max become reality?
How many more years? 10? 25? 50? before Road Warrior is us?
The certitude that there is no salvation is [itself] a form of salvation. --E.M. Cioran.
Repeat after me…
I accept that the protean, nihilistic revolution, securitized by my labor, for the benefit of billionaire Wall Street parasites, is now complete. I accept there is no future like the one “as seen on TV.” I see that striving for escape or transcendence from consumer subjugation through blasé self-indulgence, hatred and rage has wasted my very limited time. Henceforth, I will strive to become each new day -- on its terms not mine.
Though capitalism and religion have almost destroyed the biosphere, they have not destroyed me. I am still human! I harbor the capacity to adapt and transform, to embrace increasing entropy, to starve failure rather than trust in it, to liberate my body from brain eating corporate food, to plant vegetables, to drill freshwater wells, to put up solar panels… to prepare for and enjoy collapse.
