MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
I saw a word today in an article. It was a curious word – the word was TEOTWAKI. I thought it was some foreign word or the name of some documentary that I had to see. However as I was reading I realized that the word TEOTWAKI was not some new word but an acronym for THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT.
I thought – how cool, now if anyone wants to ben your ear about everything is going to hell in a handbasket all you have to say to them is TEOTWAKI.
So if someone says “Trump did this and I am mad” just say “TEOTWAKI” or “did you hear about those despicable murder hornets?” and all you have to say is TEOTWAKI.
You can use it like Hawaiians say Aloha.
If your day goes badly and you are about to go postal just throw your hands in the air and yell “TEOTWAKI” it may be therapeutic to acknowledge that it is the end of the world as we know it but so far so good right?
The world ending would be far too easy – that is why we have to go through all of this pain and confusion first.
Everyone has had the experience of believing in something that turned out not to be true. It can be said that depending on the situation it can be psychologically traumatic to realize what you thought was the truth, turns out to be at odds with your normalcy bias.
Like it or not, our beliefs about the world are interconnected with other beliefs we have been programmed to accept. As one thing is revealed, there are more that follow and you can either lie to yourself and say that it is a form of persecution or deception or you can learn more about what the facts are.
It takes a great deal of strength in order to let go of one’s preconceived ideas and accept new and factual data.
Since the media guides, controls and even at times hijacks the zeitgeist, we sometimes forget that we have not defeated those who oppress us – we have simply enabled them by ignoring their nefarious activities.
The citizens of the United States have been lulled into forgetting much of what is truly oppressing them. The way the system has deteriorated over time gives me a reason to be parapolitically direct and speak of how we have established as a nation a default system in order to eliminate what we once called “normal American freedoms.” Today, the system has determined that your ability to be a normal American is based wholly on your place in the power structure.
People are rising up but it can be argued that those who are rising up are part of a fragmented disloyalty to everything when all we need to do is focus on each problem separately instead of evolving to entropy.
We have created a statist system where we rank people from those who are superior to us, and to those whom we view as subhuman or worthless. The idea of survival of the fittest is eliminated through our appointed and voted upon an authoritarian system. We have allowed ourselves to pretty much believe that we have appointed through the ballot box someone who is more superior than we are to dole out resources, suspend human rights, and hire an army to create a police state capable of eliminating those they tell us are subhuman and worthless.
The government doesn’t do the radical and tribal factions will.
That is why we are beginning to see the real threat of civil war.
The economic, social, political, and military distress pervading the world should be terrifying the average American, but most are blissfully ignorant of the coming anguish when the best-laid plans of central bankers, climate cultists, race baiters, White supremacists and corrupt politicians blow up once again and plunge the world into dazed oblivion.
When it happens there will be a groundswell of people thinking, what happened I thought all of these good intentions were going to benefit everyone?
Good intentions are never always as good as we think and incompetence and corruption always seem to find a way.
The universe never bends to good intentions –and neither does a structure that is over 200 years old—a government structure, a constitutional republic about to be trashed by the fragmented mob.
No one in the midst of the mob thinks that they are the bad guy — even when they are tearing down statues, burning federal buildings, and shooting police officers. No one in the mob feels culpable — they see what they feel are injustices predicated upon them or to someone who they empathize with and then they strike. In America we never see ourselves as monsters or even destroyers of all we have fought for.
The truth, if you decide to accept it, is the media and the politicians have given the spotlight to extremism.
The majority of Americans really weren’t bothered with gay rights of even black rights until we were forced to acknowledge the violence that has been pervasive in our lives. We were living side by side with our gay neighbors and black neighbors.
It was the extremists that showed up that triggered the other extremists to say something and demand we do something and when we all agreed that extremism is rare – the extremists forced us to pay attention.
They marched with their torches and pitchforks screaming “Blood and Soil” – which triggered the other side to organize and assume that everyone felt the same as the neo-Nazis that put on a show.
Most didn’t support these things but the media made you think that. They told you that your leaders felt that way. Most Americans were saying this is not the America we grew up in.
They were right but were ignored by the cancel culture, this triggered resentment, then came Antifa—from there, the Anarchist faction – Black Lives Matter and more.
Patriot groups were triggered as they were accused of being selfish, myopic, and violent.
Both mobs were violent to each other and the media wanted to choose which violent mob represents are inner hatred.
The politicians stepped in and made it worse with what they say and with what they don’t say.
People never cared about political affiliation until everyone started condemning each other for their political beliefs.
Then came those foreign born politicians and the xenophobia and the fear of their views moving in on what are called American views.
The majority of people did not care about where others were born until they wanted to come in, erase our history and blame our ancestors for the problems they are having now — not fitting in not dealing with the culture shock.
The entitlement factor is making people into monsters — we were fine until we were harassed, told we were sick and were reminded that we are all victims and that we needed to pass the blame and forfeit accountability.
We never really were into the idea of forcing our beliefs on others until we were told that what we believe is wrong — that our constitutional republic was a menace and that we all need to be told how to live our lives…
America was about being free, tolerant, and understanding — those values may no longer apply and while we all know who is blamed for all of it, most Americans do not know that the country has suffered a form of apoplexy for so long that they are about to have a severe stroke.
Maybe social media exposed the white underbelly of the ugly. Maybe when we see all the ugly we realize that we are not special and that we tend to over care about everything and when we do we don’t realize that we are falling off of a cliff.
When I was a kid, one of my favorite cartoons was Roadrunner. Looking back at it I realized just how pointless it was – but still it was always funny to watch the Roadrunner fool Wile E. Coyote into doing things that would main him. As a kid I didn’t know what suspending belief meant. While I watched Roadrunner Cartoons I always wondered how Wile E. Coyote was able to stay airborne for a few seconds before he plummeted off of a cliff – hitting the jagged rocks below.
I am realizing how this can happen in a metaphoric way.
At this time in our history, we are like Wile E. Coyote.
We are going over the cliff but we are still running and we haven’t yet realized that we are going to fall hard on those jagged rocks below us.
Last night in Kentucky, after the Breonna Taylor decision, we started our journey over the cliff. The next few days we will begin our descent still running and causing mayhem in major cities.
By October, we will start to see the internet make changes to social media platforms. By November, we will feel the slam of the whole country hitting the rocks.
If we have state oppression and economic chaos by Christmas then what will be the next stage of the takeover.
As I was watching Kentucky’s response to the verdict produced by the Grand Jury in the Breonna Taylor case, I also saw a hashtag trending on Twitter –it was #Trump Coup.
I remember it was weeks ago we were discussing the possibility that the President was in danger. The very though generated hostility not only on line but we also heard the anger on the air at the very idea of me suggesting that this is the case in our country.
Just days after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Secret Service intercepted a piece of mail addressed to the White House that contained the lethal poison, ricin.
A woman from Canada now has been arrested and accused of sending the letter to the President.
The suspect said in a letter to the President: “give up and remove your application for this election.” She allegedly wrote that the ricin was her “gift” to him and if it did not work, she would find a recipe for another poison or use her gun against the president.
U.S. officials said the letter was intercepted on Friday before reaching its destination. All mail for the White House is sorted and screened at an offsite facility before reaching the president’s official residence.
During the investigation, the FBI say they discovered that six additional letters containing ricin appeared to have been received in Texas last September. If you recall this was around the time that there was speculation that there was an attempt to poison the food of the President, we reported that this may have happened but of course since the mainstream media did not report it, we can pretend that nothing happened. Since it upsets people so much to hear that the façade is wearing off we have to avoid speaking about the reality that America is becoming hostile and that there are agents within our borders who are not above committing acts of mob justice and government take overs in order to engender civil war in America.
There is only one difference between what is happening now and a full-on state take over– an immediate change in the Zeitgeist. Now, arguably some believe that it may be the Breonna Taylor decision but that only effects a minority of people — what is next has to be an event where there is little doubt that we have crashed on the rocks and that something has to be done by the people to eliminate the lawlessness that has prevailed for the past 7 months.
I believe that this is what is in the planning – it is the future event that we have all wondered after – something that causes a psychological shock that will give the police the conviction that things are so bad “force is necessary” to ensure things don’t get out of control.
This event will require that America acquiesce to a police state. Something that will be seen as state sanctioned oppression – something more that social distancing and mask wearing.
Younger citizens seem to believe that Mob Justice is the answer to everything they do not approve of – and there are presidential candidates who have declared that if there is no exchange of power after the next election then there will be more of this lawlessness to continue.
When Ruth Bader Ginsberg died and both President Trump and Mitch McConnell were on the quick saying that the seat would be replaced – there was an uproar all over the internet from the radical left saying that they would burn the country to the ground if we did not wait till after the election to select a nominee.
Reza Aslan, a religious scholar and former CNN host, tweeted to his 293,000 followers: ‘If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f****** thing down.
Beau Willimon, a screenwriter who produced the U.S. version of House of Cards and the president of the Writers Guild of America, East, told his 164,000 followers: We’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election.’
Author Aaron Gouveia, whose latest book is about toxic masculinity, tweeted: ‘F*** no. Burn it all down.’
And a professor of political science repeated calls for arson attacks on Congress.
Emmett Macfarlane, who teaches at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, tweeted: ‘Burn Congress down before letting Trump try to appoint anyone to SCOTUS.
A member of the Wisconsin Ethics Commission, responsible for administering state laws regarding campaign finance, ethics and lobbying, echoed the urging for violence.
When Ed Markey, senate candidate for Massachusetts, said that McConnell should not nominate a replacement in an election year, Scot Ross tweeted: ‘F****** A, Ed. If you can’t shut it down, burn it down.’
Trump is supposed to make a decision on Saturday – Saturday there are going to be demonstrations protesting the Breonna Taylor decision – things are about to turn –and most the United States is ill prepared psychologically, monetarily and in other ways.
It would seem to be inevitable that America is going to see more conflict as the private backers with deep pockets show no signs of wishing to abort their color revolution.
As the social façade cracks, and the economic system breaks, there is neither a society nor an economy to fall back on. By Christmas it will be obvious that normality has gone forever.
So what will ‘they’ do with millions of unemployed, frightened people? If ‘they’ leave the internet on then the people will start to organize.
If they turn it off then what?
It was reported two days ago in the Financial Times that Facebook will take aggressive measures to “restrict the circulation of content” on its platform if November’s presidential election descends into chaos or violent civic unrest. The company had drawn up plans for how to handle a range of outcomes, including widespread civic unrest or “the political dilemmas” of having in-person votes counted more rapidly than mail-in ballots.
So if Facebook turns off, riots become disorganized. Then there is always the cell phone – if they turn off cell phones, you can imagine what comes next.
So what will ‘they’ do with millions of unemployed, frightened people that don’t have access to their social media drug?
There will have to be professional soldiers hired to ‘maintain the peace’ in the cities. No one want to say that it could be that out of control but it can be that out of control.
One of the scary things about working through ‘their’ options is that they are running out of them– we have allowed the lawlessness to go on for so long that now if any decisions come down from the top down there will always be someone demanding that something be destroyed or taken down.
Things now have obviously gone too far.
November is bound to see some changes and they may well trigger a change in the Zeitgeist—the thing is, the only certainty is uncertainty.
