Let’s kick some batshit evil ass

The sad story is that there are too many layers of bat shit evil for a person to deal with in these final days of the American experiment. That is the result of multiple layers of failure progressing each on their own time line. These layers also extend beyond the boundaries of one aging nation state struggling with its own demise to a planet struggling with forced climate change and an integrated economic system facing the failure of its base premise.

I think a good rant against the most destructive forms and agents of bat shit evil is a useful response. Bravo. Kick them in the crotch. This obviously won’t fix anything but it does do one important thing and that is to begin to create a new morality to replace the one we have lost. We definitely have no place on this planet for greed as a justification to destroy our children, to deny anyone medical care, education, housing, or the opportunity to work at something they can find value in doing.

And that obviously means there is no longer any room for racism, misogyny, xenophobia, or bigotry in any form. We have made great advances and the rapid spread and support for all diversity is a critical part of that. We might as well get it all out here and include those people caught up in the mythology of the old zero sum rat race who feel their god given privilege slipping away. I can appreciate their unhappiness with that but there is also no room for any mercy for that personal problem. We all need to deal with it and it is something that many of us grew up without the slightest inkling that we were utter assholes taking from others just because we could. Ignorance is no excuse.

We need to make a better world and the great majority know an asshole when they see one and they also know bat shit evil when they see it, smell it, or hear it howling in the distance. The problem is that the failing political systems we have are under the control of bat shit evil people and, while we allowed that to happen, there really wasn't much that many of us could do about it. And that even if we voted diligently in every American election of the last fifty years. The system was rigged increasingly to support those in control and to hell with everyone else. That isn’t going to change with another election in a failed system. But change it must.

That brings us back here to Holly Wood’s full power rant. About all we can do right now in this country is make damn sure everyone knows who the evil shits are that are laying waste to the country, culture and the planet by calling them out constantly. These evil shits are making no pretense of anything but theft and pleasure in destroying whole masses of people. Then they trot out the ugly excuse that we “can’t afford” to do this any other way. Or, worse yet, it is unreasonable to expect anything of our life on this planet unless we grew up in the tiny elite populations that made their stash on three or four hundred years of racist exploitation.

We have the technology and the knowledge to use the assets of this planet to guarantee the well being of everyone and everything on this planet. The fact that it is not now happening is a brutal indictment of everyone of us on the receiving end of racist privilege, position, education, and wealth.

We need to ensure that this happens and it will. But first we need to remove all the bat shit evil assholes who are desperately trying to steal our future and will shoot, bomb, starve, or deny medical care to all children so they can do that. Enough of this shit.
