Rise of the Planet of the Apes

… This is an analogy of social engineers of the Right, the Koch Brothers, the forces of Wall Street, the rich, the Fed, the whole mechanism that is starving the world’s nations at will and turning their people to rioters, depriving them of pensions, medical care, social safety nets, and leaving them to the dogs of fate, making once peaceful humans into rebellious apes, hungry to bring down or kill their oppressors. Does that strike a chord?

Beneath those faces you see in the crowd scenes of the Egyptian Spring, the Libyan War, the Pakistan drone protests, the Afghanistan and Iraq wars are the young militia faces, too, denying the starving children of Somalia food and life. And there are faces of young people on the streets of England tearing apart shops because they lack jobs, money, futures, but most of all, respect. 

They are more apes that once were humans. Maybe they need to be genetically humanized again so that they’re recognized as such. Big Pharma, there’s a Big Idea for you, a pill to change the human species’ DNA, to lift it to a new level of consciousness before the flashpoint of world revolution is struck and the fire next time crisps the planet.

We have the power to go either way, into a higher level of civilization where wealth is more equitably divided to provide a human safety net for all, or where health is hoarded in base selfishness to create shortages and deprive billions of life. The latter would please the apes of the New World Order, who are dedicated to population reduction, especially to people of color and the Third World. Those looking for consciousness, compassion and adherence to the common good are in a shooting war and a war of ideas with this NWO.

There is no need to ask when the revolution will start. It has started already; the chaos characterizes countries around the world … //

… Look at your cities, your towns, villages, the people that once cared for them and taught your children, tended your streets and infrastructure. They are being cast aside, their wages stolen, the futures denied. Watch as the bridges crumbles, the roads lead to oblivion and the world slowly begins to circle in on us as the alpha apes of destruction. Listen in the night as sounds of thunderous jets cross overhead. Listen to the peeling of the paint on abandoned schoolrooms. Where are the children, hunting already in militias of grief? Where is the tarnished innocence of yesterday?

Where is the simple, the affordable, lovable pleasures of life? Have you paid your mortgage and cleaned up your revolving credit card debt? Are you waiting for a knock on the door, a plug to be pulled, the bang of a judge’s gavel on your head?

These are the symptoms of the epidemic of hate. There are more that you know, see, hear, watch, and feel turning you into someone else. Is it the radiation, the pollution, the poisoned food, the gas-scented water, the unbearable heat or cold?

Come in the shadow of this rock. But it is gone with the wind, splintered by change, an unholy change, a spiral downwards to perdition. The movie is almost over. The New World Order waits in the light outside. Or does it? Has it been thwarted as you watched reality flicker in the teeth of time, gears chewing it up and spitting it out? Is this only a dream and are you first waking to the cloudless, blue fall sky of 9/11, that perfect morning when this all began anew, and you saw the apha ape in the mirror, and it frightened you beyond belief.
