|"We announce our candidacy for Preznit Sky Pilot"|
How soon we forget (Inside Job and/or Conspiracy?).
In the ongoing Olympics we call the election cycle, do you observe a struggle to see who can be the dumbest of dumb or dumber?
But, let's not lose sight of some world record campaigns of the past, which may surpass the current unconscious babble.
Much of it is coming from religious candidates, while other aspects of the cacophony comes from predator capitalists, and perhaps the remainder are from those much less likely to prevail: "the few, the sane, the also-rans."
For instance, a certain campaign of yore may be instructive:
"Another typical example of infatuation is the Unabomber Political Action Committee, a Boston-based group that is pushing the Unabomber for President. Chris Korda, a campaign worker and member of a related group called the Church of Euthanasia, is completely serious. For him, the Unabomber's appeal comes from his theoretically strict rumblings about mankind-as-pox. (The church's slogan is ''Save the Planet -- Kill Yourself.'')"(They Call It Luddite Love, emphasis added). One has to wonder about the impact of that theatre of the absurd.
Evidently, supporting such an infamous person (Unabomber) for president can cause genetic morph into a maelstrom of ministration:
Chris Korda is under the ultimate deadline. As reverend of the Church of Euthanasia ... she's running an edgy, in-your-face campaign to stop human overpopulation before every redwood, owl, and butterfly fades into history.(You Are The Problem, emphasis added). They target the current world of youth, whom they evidently now see as a problem (They prey on youth).
With a droll theology that advocates suicide, abortion, cannibalism, and sodomy, Korda and her crew of young eco-hackers are waging war on the reproductive habits of the baby boomer generation - before the planet gets too messed up."
That may be in whole or in part a projection from a type of Manson Complex:
Chris Korda (1962 - ) priest ... a great-nephew of film magnate Alexander Korda and the only son of Michael Korda, the novelist and editor-in-chief at Simon & Shuster in New York. Chris was a loner as a teenager, incarcerated for a while, and left New York for good when 14.(A Gender Variance Who's Who, emphasis added; cf Wikipedia). Like father, like son, in the sense that the High Priest of Kill Yourself had a father who also had a girlfriend.
She settled in Boston, worked for a while as a female impersonator, and considered but did not complete a full transition to female.
In 1992 an alien intelligence, The Being, visited her in a dream and warned of the coming eco-catastrophe. She immediately changed her life and founded the Church of Euthanasia and anointed herself as Reverend. The Church advocates four pillars: suicide, abortion (the Church is not pro-choice – giving birth leads to excommunication), cannibalism (for those who are not vegan like Chris) and sodomy (any form of non-procreative sex).
... She has a girl-friend.
In addition to the little priest's mother.
Eventually, the little priest's dad divorced his wife, the little priest's mother, in favor of the girlfriend (Wikipedia, Michael Korda).
The father of the little priest was heavily into power, money, and sex, but evidently he was not so much into his kid, the little priest (Big-Shot Editor).
This is a fitting metaphor for civilization today, where the movers and shakers are into power and money, but are not so much into the welfare of the populace (The Private Empire's Social Media Hit Squads, cf. The Common Good, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10).
Thus, we watch another election cycle that resembles a popularity contest in an insane asylum (NeoCon Planet: The Presidents of Kolob, NeoCon Planet: Maggie's Farm).
The one thing that their words deny, but their behavior evinces, is that for the most part, those running for preznit want to destroy this planet (Oil-Qaeda & MOMCOM Conspire To Commit Depraved-Heart Murder).
The High Priest in Chief (The Dogma of The High Priest In Chief, 2, 3) is reproducing little high priests in chief it would seem (Petroleum Civilization: The Final Chapter (Confusing Life with Death) - 4).
It is so bad that civilization is on euthanasia watch (Civilization Is Now On Suicide Watch, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8).
That is not your fault (The Psychology of the Notion of Collective Guilt).
