They’re actually making fun of you.

Half-formed posts, inchoate philosophies, and the germs of deep thought.

They’re actually making fun of you.

I look at the ‘news’ everyday, and when it comes to praising people like Joni Mitchell and Barry Gibb or Paul McCartney...

These serious praise articles are actually Satire.

I know how demons think.
The purpose of life is to give everyone individually what they always want at the expense of no being - forever.

The biggest problem of life is the, “hey, I don’t want this to be happening” problem for everyone.

Welcome to thinking.

They just think it’s funny to prop people up who they know amount to just as much as anyone else.

Fortunately... we’re entering an age of no celebrity.

The biggest celebrities on earth are Trump, Putin and Kim Il Sung III. Maybe Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk.

That’s it.

Soon. It will be nobody. The demons won’t have as much fun with people when that happens.

“Turn it off” still works here.

There is no age like that or ever was.

Celebrity always belonged to 2 types: the generals and those. specially thought of , as necessary on the front lines of struggle: those who thought of themselves as nobodies , that needed to be propped up, to fight the battle , without which, those within would have been inconceivable.

And 'celebrities' could be the first ones to admit to 'patching' up ( Your own words) their apparent celebrity, in order to pass for just another guy, but retaining in some core of their being, the celebrated cause for their patching.

Point: patching is tantamount for masking. Any good act worth it's muster would pass the test, and all they would have to do is to yank off their mask
