Billy Beck: Endarkenment

From October, 2005:

Referring to this, this person says, “Besides, every generation, feels like the ‘wheels are coming off’ in some sense.”

Yup. But you know what?

Every now and then, they’re right about it.

I’m off to bed.

Sweet dreams, kids.

  1. Billy Beck rocks. Has for ages. A national treasure.

  2. well, Peggy Noonan – ex-Reagan speechwriter – certainly found the solution. She supported and voted for Obama in ’08. Cuckservatives all

  3. I’m not buying a subscription to that crap. The other link didn’t work.

    “I suspect that history, including great historical novelists of the future, will look back and see that many of our elites simply decided to enjoy their lives while they waited for the next chapter of trouble. And that they consciously, or unconsciously, took grim comfort in this thought: I got mine. Which is what the separate peace comes down to, “I got mine, you get yours.”

    You’re a lobbyist or a senator or a cabinet chief, you’re an editor at a paper or a green-room schmoozer, you’re a doctor or lawyer or Indian chief, and you’re making your life a little fortress. That’s what I think a lot of the elites are up to.”

    The irony is at the time this was written I was living in actual fortresses overseas aka FOBs trying to keep this boat of bullshit afloat. There’s only a small percentage of people who do really critical tasks (and I’m including everyone who has a real role in the work and technology that keeps a modern empire running); and the hour we falter or walk away it is indeed over. The phones go dead, the payments don’t go through, the milk doesn’t get delivered, and the power goes off. No one shows up to stop the riots, tend to the injured, put out the fires, and bury the dead. Why? The men and women who got fucked over and betrayed one too many times just don’t show up to help or rebuild. Why? Because fuck you that’s why.

      My question is why ?

      I quit working around that time and retired early so my labor and tax $s didn’t have to support the lie called 911. I didn’t fall for it. Most did. The rest is history….

        Most did. It’s amazing how little money a healthy single guy without various addictions can live on and simulate a middle-class existence (or nearly-so, as if attending grad school). If charming and helpful, with tools and skills, the money rolls in plenty fast to allow some surplus to be spent appropriately and invisibly.

        3-digit bank balance. Banking is required to operate, but they suck, esp. with the new rules about me being an unsecured creditor. 3-digits is plenty to be “a person” to our overseers, but not “someone interesting”. Remember to have account activity!

      • WHY? Too young to retire, too old to start over elsewhere (and where would that be anyway), why not make like difficult for some jihadists while I’m there, and like Dirt Harry said “I hate the system, but until someone comes up with something better…”
