There are too many of us.

 

            911 was an inside job.  AIDS was man made.  The Fed is a private entity.  Bilderberg secretly rules the world.  KBR has built concentration camps all over the US as part of a program in DHS called end game.  Privatized water.  Genetically engineered food with suicide genes.  Big Pharma is turning everyone in junkies.  Blah. Death. Blah Doom.

            I am now in a complete outrage coma.  I can see and hear all the horrible things going on all around me (which is an improvement over most of the brain dead citizenry) but what used to be used to be a knee jerk “Motherf*cker!” reaction has been subdued all the way down to a tired shrug.  I’ve been worn down to a nub, and this nub just doesn’t care anymore.

            This can happen to any red blooded American progressive these days.  For those of us who frequent OPED and other alternative media sites it is easy to assume the sensory overload induced thousand mile stare.  But my despair comes from a different terrible knowledge, one that I have surprised in my own psyche for a while.

 

            Now what I’m going to say here is going to be harsh, you have been warned.

 

            There are too many of us.

 

            Overpopulation on a planet with finite resources; that is real truth that no one dares speak.  It’s a reality that is hard to accept let alone work towards solving.  For to solve it would mean to betray our own natural instincts.  To even discuss it is uncomfortable for most people.  I’m a bad, bad blogist and so have no reference for these statistics:

 

Every second 5 babies are born and 2 people die

 

            I just found it through a google search.  But you get the point.  How is it that 1 million people can die in Iraq and twice that in northern Africa and it hardly registers in the American public’s collective conscience?  It’s because life is cheap.  If life was a commodity traded in the world markets it would be rated as junk. 

Oh, but not all life is created equal.  There are many divisions and categories to consider when considering the value of a life.  When was it started?  Where was it started?  How productive has it been so far?  How productive is its potential in the future?  What is its lineage?  And then there are the really stupid but seemingly more important factors.  What sex is it?  What color is it?  What religion does it belong to?  What political affiliations does it have?  What are its’ sexual preferences?  What is really interesting think about is that perhaps we already do, in a manor of speaking, make these value judgments on the value of human life.  Workers in Mexico are paid less than workers in America because?  Employers prefer workers under the age of 30 because?  There aren’t hundreds of thousands of Indians roaming the great plains of Wyoming because? I could go on but you’re already doing it in your own head while simultaneously condemning me for pointing it out.

This brings me to all the atrocities being rote against humanity today…today and everyday from the beginning of civilization in actuality.  Because if there really is an all powerful elite class ruling the world from the shadows they most definitely understand how to value human life.  Indeed if they do exist, their actions suggest not only that they can equate the value of life but they can also manipulate its price.  Is AIDS African or homosexual population control?  Is the war on terror Arab population control?  Is cancer?  Is depleted uranium?  War on Drugs?  War itself?

Population control can only be accomplished either by not having children or by killing people.  Now think about this very carefully, which do you think would be easier for the people of this planet to accept? 

And now excuse me while I throw my hands up in the air.
