The Inner Sanctum

The peons are restless.  The planet is restless.  Throughout the Inner Sanctum where unquestioned omnipotence  is taken for granted, ripples are just breaking the traditional calm, threatening to overwhelm the current status quo.  The rich and powerful have ratcheted up their paranoia in an attempt to forestall any effort to take from them that which they feel entitled to.

Munching nervously on fat cigars, what they say to each other in hushed voices in backrooms never sees the light of day.  They would not want the lowlifes they lord over to know that they don't give one shit about anything but staying in power and keeping the money conduits flowing to their pockets.

They keep us fractured into partisan camps with lies, deceit and the myth that they themselves are on one side of the fence or the other.  Ideology is nothing but a wedge they use to divide us.  Reality for them is some bottom line entry in their personal ledgers.  They tell us anything they hope will keep us off our guard and on edge.  Distracting us with over stated or non-existent threats to our physical and mental well being, the issues that concern most of us take a back seat to the issues we allow them ownership of.

After all, we are nothing but herds of cattle milling around the slaughterhouse yards waiting for the Judas goat to lead us to the butcher block.  Because we allow them to own the messages and our spirits, we deserve just what they are doing to us.

I agree with you; I think Dave Mallett expressed it: check out the link

Aren't we overdue for a major screwing up of their inner sanctum?

Nasreen Iqbal - Yes. Yes, it is deep cynicism. Despite my attitude though, I believe we will survive in spite of ourselves. That is of course if the planet lets us.

Ol'Buzzard - Ten men in black hats and hearts..... Yeah that about covers it.

Jono - History is chock full of major screwings by those who have and those who don't. The degree of reset varies, but there is always a correction. What bothers me is we have the best mechanism (democratic process) I can think of to make the corrections an ongoing concern, yet we till seem happier waiting until critical mass has been achieved.

mohaverat - Thank you. I will try to post more.

Which is why since humankind moved out of small matriarchal hunter-gatherer groups, we have had rulers and ruled. Work gets done by them that shows up. And if they come with a written plan, they get to do it their way.
The problem with waiting for critical mass is that once it starts, it doesn't end well. Ask Robespierre.

The Blog Fodder - Absolutely. Rise and Decline is apparently a steadfast function of our struggle to elevate the race. A kind of 2 step forward, one back progress. The problem as I see it though is, while we may not be able to avoid the decline, we just cannot seem to catch it before it goes nuclear. Historical precedent is tossed out the fucking window when a culture panics. Like rats on a sinking ship I guess.
