War

The North's National Defense Commission said the moves would feed into an "upcoming all-out action" that would target the United States, "the sworn enemy of the Korean people."

You know, war leads to more war. There is no military solution and as the escalation of critical climate related resources being lost continues to obliterate a gluttonous way of life I melt into obilivion. I watched a hedge fund futurist speak with total glee about the future of technology and it was obvious he knew only the technical details about gold mining, tar sands, oil, solar, circuit board assembly. He's scratched the surface of many fields and kept his own reality isolated from the cause and effect of his choices. Some people can allow laborers to do their dirty work but I'm repulsed when those same people pretend the dirty work is clean and the lettuce pickers of America sing work songs in merry solidarity. Their ignorance is the fiber in the pillow they lay their empty heads on at night. Because the disparity of lifestyles now allows this effrontery even Charlie Rose nodded happily. "Yes, tell me more about the future of the world for white imperialist Americans."
I'm trying to do the math on the number of slaves in 1840 compared to the number of black people in jail in 2013. I'm thinking the inmates have the slaves beat. Percentage-wise there are more free black people but the net number of slaves is higher today. There is an breakdown in ethics that I want to go on record as having strong concerns about. I'm puzzled as the pallet of my experience fluctuates like a bullfrog's throat.
There will either be an age of enlightened peace or there will be endless conflict until climate prevents any form of tenable existence on earth. Our digital memory will capture our gluttony and ignorance like dying lions in staged safari parks. The blighted desert will be renamed "paradise" and the meek will flock with peasant skirts and ragged faces to bow before the bleak fortress of the mighty. The lexicon is already under siege.
