Courtesy of Zero Hedge, there is an excellent post by Jim Quinn of The Burning Platform that illustrates a concept for a post I have been kicking around. The majority of people, especially the elite, think in linear terms. Past to present to future is a straight line, ever upward, with a few dips for recessions, wars, etc. So a fuzzy line of little wiggles. The rest of humanity thinks in cyclical terms where the past is repeated, with different cycles overlapping. Cycles of oppression and retribution, cycles of profit and loss, cycles of drought, cycles of mini-ice ages, volcano eruptions, etc.
I think in a much different pattern than most, where past events influence or repeat in their entirety.
My current line of thinking is that we might see a three-way civil war, with the OWS vs. the Tea Party vs. the Progressive Elite. I need to do some more digestion before I can post about it, though. I also need to do some field research, which involves me going to the Occupy Boston and Occupy Wall Street (Road Trip!) to chat with the people there. I’ve reached out to my contacts at the BPD to fill me in on what I need to do to be safe, and avoid any problems with the cops. I’m a social chameleon, so I’m not worried about the crowd. More info as I get it.
