POWER OUT IN THE FOREST
I don’t know how many of you living as far away from the malignant craphole of California as possible ( not that a lot of you aren’t living in equally untenable locations that are swarming with the scumbags of the universe in million multiples-so no offense to Cali residents in particular. I just hold a place near and dear to my rectum for the state since I was trapped there for so long ) have heard about the dam in Oroville threatening to give way, or did give way, or whatever it did-and frankly my dear loyal minions I could give a crap about anyway-and are now loudly proclaiming yet another instance of infrastructure collapse. Which of course it is. This latest bout of warmer weather and rain are flooding a lot of places out here in the west. Places that are no stranger to many years of drought followed by flash floods. Hell, California itself, in particular Southern California, has ALWAYS seen flash flood damage after prolonged drought and fire.
As fire and flood are normal, we then ask ourselves if the rain damage now is severe because of Gore Warming or because of infrastructure neglect and collapse. As you might suspect, I fall in the infrastructure collapse camp ( not that global weather change isn’t real, it is just that past flooding has been about as bad and yet didn’t effect infrastructure as badly-in general, as there always being exceptions ). As bad as weather change will be, and is already, we have done ourselves little favor by the way we’ve painted a target on ourselves so that the change is all for the catastrophic. Overpopulation to profit the elite, infrastructure neglect to amass fortunes for the few ( locally, streets are repaved even when not needed, with the curb work extremely substandard and inefficient for drainage even as that was the justification for the work, while the old part of town by the river is allowed to rot. It is far easier to skim the money off easy work than something hard. And someone ALWAYS profits ). Now look at your location and note the eye candy extremely expensive work being done even as the rest of everything is neglected. This was especially easy to see during the pre-2007 building bubble as new subdivisions were slapped up with huge municipal fees for construction. The added infrastructure is guaranteed to fail prior to the mortgages being paid off, the work and material were below Mexico standard, and at the same time the older infrastructure was ignored.
This story is of course nothing new. I merely expand upon it to fill in the back story. Here is what I’d like to touch on today. You excitedly point out single instances of infrastructure collapse. The Michigan bridge. The Oroville dam. The L.A. earthquake decades ago only collapsing government structures ( in an area with insanely high taxes ). The constant electrical outages even on clear and windless days. The Internet slow downs regularly. Water from the tap either full of extra chlorine or extra toxins. Potholes everywhere except into Yuppie Hill. And then, you still stay exactly where you are, completely vulnerable to the effects of infrastructure decay and collapse. All these failures are certainly NOT one off events. They are systematic. We no longer have the skill, materials to include energy ( in the sixteen years since the new century, our energy net return is HALF what it was, globally ) or financing ( an interesting fun filled fact. I was just reading that something like 80% and up of all monies in the financial sector stay there. The remaining twenty percent trickles down into the real world for real needs ) to maintain our infrastructure. As a minion helpfully and hilariously pointed out, our whole surrounding structure was a White Elephant we stupidly rewarded ourselves with.
How did we develop the blindness where we see collapse but then convince ourselves we can avoid it even as we live in it? We are seeing the trees and ignoring the forest. Or, in this case, the power has gone out in the forest and we don’t worry about it. I am certainly NOT calling for mass action to “fix” our problem. There is no acting in concert nor is there any hope in Hades that any of this can be fixed or reversed. The Donald can’t stop the Muslims from being flown in one by one and he thinks he can build a thousands of miles wall on our southern border? All we can do is act to save our own families and tribes and to Gott Damn hell with the rest of humanity. But to do even that, you must pull your head out of your ass. Your job? THAT is part of the failing infrastructure. Your thirty year mortgage house? That is part of the job market, financial industry, centralized government, petroleum importation, electrical and sewer and water grid and Internet infrastructure all tied together. Now, if all those are failing, why are you staying in the city again? What am I missing?
Just because our infrastructure has been failing for forty years and we have worked around that doesn’t mean we can continue to. Before, single failures abounded. Now, systematic failures are occurring. Surely it hasn’t escaped your notice that New Orleans is still only half full with piles of bulldozed neighborhoods still sitting in soggy refuse piles? And that was a relatively small metro area. How about Detroit? Anyone notice the street lights suddenly lit again? How about all those tens of thousands of abandoned buildings? Suddenly cleared or occupied? We are the 1920’s Jews in Germany, reading articles on how we are going to be removed from the Aryan State. Do we do something about it, or not? The infrastructure collapse is a very blatant canary in the coal mine keeling over. Are you paying attention? Today it is dams failing in the West, tomorrow it could be you sitting in the dark trying to read your pink slip.
