Fantasy, Meet Reality

Read this story from the UK Telegraph on the "fantasy cycle" in human affairs:

...When we embark on a course of action which is unconsciously driven by wishful thinking, all may seem to go well for a time, in what may be called the "dream stage". But because this make-believe can never be reconciled with reality, it leads to a "frustration stage" as things start to go wrong, prompting a more determined effort to keep the fantasy in being. As reality presses in, it leads to a "nightmare stage" as everything goes wrong, culminating in an "explosion into reality", when the fantasy finally falls apart...

"Frustration stage".

"Nightmare stage".

"Explosion into reality".


Coming soon to a neighborhood near you.

I've explained the current budget argument several times.

The deficit for this year is 16,500 billion dollars.

The Republicans are talking from 60 to 100 billion dollars in cuts.

The Democrats want only 30 billion in cuts.

Those are cuts from the 16,500 billion deficit for THIS YEAR only. There's talk of a 22,000 billion dollar deficit for fiscal year 2012.

Any questions?

I guess we're between Frustration and Nightmare.

Quit clawing.

Skip the nightmare, embrace the explosion.

We can't stop it, anyway.

The really crappy part of this is that, the moronic assholes who dream this shit up, and fuck up everyones' lives, sit back and watch the great mass of people, who paid for it, take the hit. We could have known better, but the morons were busy dumbing everyone and everything down, so as to camoflage and cover their idiocy.

Good article. We humans are busy writing a number of new chapters for a future edition of "Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds"

At least, many are. The sane few are preparing for the outcome of the globalist elites and their sycophants, all madly flinging shit at the fan.

"when the fantasy finally falls apart..." then ya get to pick up the pieces and rebuild your life, usually much better than what ya had before.......
only problem is, ya gonna have to survive through this this FANTASY EXPLOSION to get to the rebuilding stage....Damn glad I aint in no fuckin city.
