Down-town Burnaby BC, circa 2024
I must say that I do not see some of Mr Kunstler’s forecasts actually coming to pass in 2015, yet I can’t help but feel he is very accurately describing current conditions — therefore some of his predictions may simply realise later, rather than sooner. It is certainly appropriate to use the term “dark age” to describe our future if we continue on the path we are on. An interesting read at the very least. While this is an American centred thesis, it is not difficult to connect the dots as relates to Canada’s prospects for 2015 and beyond. The Elephant and the Mouse sharing the same bed, as they say.

The following is an excellent film that should be seen by everyone. Some of you will want to tune it out for various partisan reasons, but for the sake of your own well-being I strongly suggest you watch it in it’s entirety. It will equip you with an invaluable understanding of things that have been and prepare you for what is to come.
Grab a beverage and some popcorn, slip off your slippers and enjoy the show!
Richard Fernandez has penned an excellent essay titled “Vanishing Point” which features here as the first in a new series titled; Harmonious Dissonance.
Welcome to the world of forced perspective; where Eich can get pilloried for voting the wrong way on Proposition 8 and Kevin Rose can get picketed for being able to buy stuff from the people who are picketing him. It lifts the lid on a strange world. A place where Vladimir Putin, al-Qaeda, and or asteroids from space don’t exist except as things that George Bush should have taken care of; it gives a glimpse into a universe where gas drilling is just a bad word and the armed forces a job where crazy people earn a living whenever they’re not driving pickup trucks; it provides a peek into a tableau where people actually think food comes from the store and gas comes from the gas pump and money to house everyone in the woods will come from Google’s $3 billion in spare change.
I expect professor Fernandez to be a frequent source for this series.
