Peaking Blood Clots

Oil is to Modern Civilization, As blood is to the Human Body.

Both fluids serve as transports of energy to vital organs of the system.

Both fluids help to supply vital nutrients for sustaining "growth" and "repair".

Without sufficient flows, The system (Body or Civilization) "Collapses".

Does it makes sense to argue about the exact time and date of expected Collapse while the system is still alive but suffering from a chronic and increasing clogging of its pipelines?

Don't argue.

Rush in for Bypass Surgery.

Bypass use of Fossils. Switch to Renewable Energy Sources.

Minions of the Manipulative Minority

Managing Empire is hard hard work.

It can be much too much for the privileged elite.

Luckily, there are many a minion available and eager to serve.

Why do the minions serve?

That is a complex question.

More importantly, how do the minions assure the collapse of their civilization?

That is a much simplar process to understand. The minions must deceive two groups, those above them and those below them.

The elite above must not come to suspect that something is going horribly wrong below.

The wretched peasants below must not come to suspect that something is going horribly wrong above.

Only then, can the minions survive, secured in their position on the pyramid, between the powerful elite above and the deluded masses below.

A Simple Pledge

I pledge Allegiance to the "Wealth" Symbol ($$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$ $$$$$$) of the United Wealth-hoarding States of AdamSmithia;

And to the Republican Ideologies which they stand for, One Globalized-slave Nation under their required God, invisibly-handed, with Liberty and Justice for All the Haves and Have-More's.

And in case you forgot, the obsolete original:

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands , one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Understanding Peak-Oil: The Giraffe's Story

We at the Lemming Institute for Geo-rooted Healthy Thought (LIGHT) detect a lack of understanding by most human creatures concerning this "Peak Oil" phenomenon.

It is very simple.

We will let our friend, Piqued Giraffe, tell his story.

"Dear Humans,

Yes it is simple, ... sad, ... but true. I was out in the forrest with my friend, Sino the Giraffe. We were all grazing happily, in a dream like state.

Suddenly, Sino and I bumped tongues. We were reaching for the last of the low-hanging leaves. We frantically looked around. There were no more low-hanging leaves. This was it. The last of the low hangers.

We jostled. I grabbed what I-coulda Rack up in my mouth. Sino lopped off the other half of what was left.

Well that was it. Then I started kind of jumping, practicing if you will. Sino started practicing his jump too.

We each knew. He who jumps higher and harder wins the race for the lowest of the jump-reachable leaves.

We stopped being friends. Yes it is simple, sad, but true.

But need I tell you?

Church of the Holy Hockey Stick

Scientists at the Lemming Institute of Global Hubristic Thinking (LIGHT) have long understood that species enter a resource over-shoot situation when their population enters the fast rising part of the exponential "hockey stick".

A good example is found from the study of the reindeer of St. Matthew Island.

It therefore utterly amazes us lemmings when the humans establish a religous church to welcome the coming of the glorious ascent up the hockey stick handle. Are they all dumb, or is it just a devout subpopulation among them that is so dumb?

They call their church "Economics". They call their ascent up the Stairway of Doom, "Growth" or "Progress" or "Consumerism" or "WEALTH".

They have scientists, yet they do not hear the warnings.

They have leaders incapable of making midcourse corrections (a.k.a. "incapable leaders"), leaders who insist that death is triumph, leaders who "stage their stooges" in place of truth, leaders who stage themselves as Jimmy-Carter look alikes, leaders who do not understand that "Economics" is not a real science but rather a "social science", a set of fictional games invented in the minds of the overly optimistic humans (and regretably yes, also in the minds of our great Lemming Leaders) .... (wow there is no end to this list) ...
