NORTH KOREA - HOW IT WAS WHEN THE PAST WENT AWAY- ALL GERONTOCRACY GOES AWAY - BUT IS REPLACED BY A FUTURE GERONTOCRACY- É O FADO AMNÉSICO

WELL
IN A FUTURE APRIL OF 2003 QUE DIGA-SE DE PASSAGEM JÁ É PASSADO
OS QUE ESTÃO SUJEITOS ÀS CREDIT LAWS OF 1995
PAY THEY DEBTS FAZENDO OS TRABALHOS QUE OS ROBOTNIK’S REJEITAM
OU FOGEM PARA UM DEBTOR SANCTUARY
ONDE PAGAM TUDO EM CASH OR RCASH….REAR CASH…..
TRABALHANDO NA SUA ESPECIALIDADE OU FALTA DELA
SENDO MUITAS DELAS ESPECIALIDADES NÃO ECONÓMICAS
COMO JORNALISTA FOFOQUEIRO
OR SONIC SCULPTOR
MAKER OF SONIC SCULPTURES
THAT ARE ECONOMIC OR POLITICAL SLOGAN’S
LIKE SOARES IS FISH OR FIXE
É UM MUNDO DE AMNÉSICOS PARCIAIS
QUE NÃO DISTINGUEM AS SUAS NARRATIVAS DA REALIDADE
AMNESIFACIENTS ENZYMS THAT EAT MEMORY …..
I S’POSE THAT PORTUGUESE ARE THE GUINEA PIG’S OF THIS EXPERIMENT
OU P’LO MENOS PARECE NÉ…..

É O FADO….

AMERICAN YES WE CAN VISIONS OF AMERICA BY EMAIL OR IPHONE IPHONY


Recently, I've been around the world and then back to the US of A. And what strikes me is how fast many parts of the globe are forging ahead — and how decrepit coming home can feel in comparison (JFK airport, I'm looking at you). It's got me wondering: what is America still the best at?
Consider this thought experiment. If you were really, really, really rich — say, not just part of the routinely opulent 1%, but a card-carrying member of the eye-poppingly decadent .01% — what part of your life would be American? If you had the money, I'd bet you'd drive a German car, wear British shoes and an Italian suit, keep your savings in a Swiss bank, vacation in Koh Samui with shopping expeditions to Cannes, fly Emirates, develop a palate for South African wine, hire a French-trained chef, buy a few dozen Indian and Chinese companies, and pay Dubai-style taxes.
Were to you have the untrammeled economic freedom to, I'd bet you'd run screaming from big, fat, wheezing American business as usual, and its coterie of lackluster, slightly bizarre, and occasionally grody "innovations": spray cheese, ATM fees, designer diapers, disposable lowest-common-denominator junk made by prison labor, Muzak-filled big-box stores, five thousand channels and nothing on but endless reruns of Toddlers in Tiaras — not to mention toxic mega-debt,oxymoronic "healthcare," decrepit roads, and once-proud cities now crumbling into ruins
The mightiest adversary that snaps great empires like twigs isn't chimerical "globalization" — it's glittering hubris, bedecked in the finery of denial. Hence, if the whispered rumors of our imminent decline are worth leaning in and listening to, then perhaps it's worth trying to diagnose the depth of the plunge and the slope of the cliff before we scrabble for a handhold. If, as I've argued, we've got a bad case of Reality Deficit Disorder, then it might be time for a gentle reality check.
