Why? Is it a long game strategy, or a stupidly short-sighted gambit to retain power as their world collapses?
I've been trying to figure out what it is they want almost forever.
It's clear that they've bought into an alternate narrative in which there are bad guys who must be destroyed, and I'm a-feared to say, apparently it's the rest of us.
Our destruction will bring about their happiness, or so they believe.
Billions of dollars and billions of man-hours have been spent to craft this narrative, this illusion, but the bad news for them is, no amount of money and effort can maintain an illusion forever.
It's what happens in the meantime that concerns me.
After all, if you can be persuaded to believe absurdities, you can be persuaded to commit atrocities, and we're in the third quarter of the Absurdity League Championships already.
If they win, they get to go to the Atrocity Super Bowl.
And we will be playing sans helmets and personal protective equipment.
Or rules of any kind, other than what they make up.
We have one chance to vote.
