When Destruction Is the Cost of Denial ~ by Arthur Silber

"If we recognize that denial represents valuing delusion more than reality, the seriousness of the danger carried by denial depends on the respective proportions of denial and truth in our lives. Our particular delusions may appear to provide us comfort and safety. As long as our lives continue to be sustained in significant part by what is true and healthy, denial will not seriously threaten our survival. But when what is true in our lives is overwhelmed by the lies we insist upon, our days grow shorter"

"This is a time of immense historic peril, when any vestiges of a concern with truth would demand that the ruling class finally begin to loosen its death grip on delusion. Yet the ruling class continues in its absolute refusal to surrender even one of the endless lies it tells itself. Destruction rushes ever closer, and the ruling class persists in its delusions, repeating them with greater frequency and in a louder and louder voice. Nothing will stop them as they hurtle themselves toward devastation. We have no choice but to be concerned with these matters; as the ruling class destroys itself, it may destroy many of us as well."

"The crisis may be ameliorated to a degree, and the worst of the consequences may be postponed for a while. But whatever "solutions" are implemented, whatever reorganization and reregulation is imposed, it will all be done in accordance with the ruling class's desires and goals. It will all be to protect their own wealth and power to whatever extent is possible, and to expand their wealth and power still more, if that remains at all feasible."

Much more!! please read full essay

EXCELLENT interpretation of what is going on....

We are living under the thumb of governments who have lost the final thread of sanity, and are sitting in a house that they themselves have set on fire, sipping their martini's and ordering more caviar. The only way to save ourselves is to get out of the burning house with as many supplies as we can, and be prepared to rebuild when the madmen finally go down in flames.

If there is one word that describes the last 10 years

It's DENIAL.

And I don't mean the river in Africa.
