As a social critic, it is entirely my job to critique any particular society. I choose to most often chastise my own government, (a society unto itself) or that of the Americans. I also disparage ideas and ideals, like capitalism or money in general. But I do these things because I disagree with actions more than ideals. Ideas and ideals make you think and feel and act. Actions make the indelible marks in the world. I also make commentary on the behaviours of larger groups of people, whenever their actions require. Such is it that on this site you find essays written in Russian, because those particular chastisements were for their benefit. This essay I shall endeavour to produce with an emphasis on baser language and in English, for it is to the plain American folk I now write.
|Oh yeah, Pence! Jesus Christ! Don't forget about Pence.|
You don't know it yet, but you're fucked. You just elected a piece of shit into the White House because he said he would drain the swamp. He can't do that. What he can do is fill the swamp up with people dumber than he is. (To make himself look good and feel good.) This is nothing but a recipe for disaster. I'm not here to write about why you elected him, what is done is done. I just thought you might like to know that, if you did vote for Mr. Trump and if you stand for what he stands for, the rest of the world is not only greatly disappointed in you, but thinks that you are as much a deplorable, disgusting human being as he.
As I wrote to those aforementioned Russians when they where abusing, torturing and killing homosexuals simply for being gay, "you are taking steps backwards. You are embarrassing yourself and making us look bad in front of the aliens / God. Stop it!" Of course, in your case, American conservative, you can't now "stop it." It will be stopped, but only because I see only two outcomes to a Trump presidency, removal or surrender. Personally, I don't think he'll last forty days. This doesn't matter to you, you're still the one thinking women are less than, immigrants should fuck off back home and therefore you must act. It is in this action, where your ideas and ideals bare their ugly faces that you lash out, baring yours. Uncle Donald has put a giant spotlight on your morality America and it is coming up wanting.
When the whole fucking world looks at you and shakes its head. It's time to go to your room and think about what you've done. Since WWII you've been the blowhard of the world, now that we've finally said "Enough" you decide to dig in your heels and say, "No dammit. We want to be idiots and assholes! We're gonna hold our breath until we turn blue..." There's really only a few million true Trump supporters, voting turnout was the lowest ever recorded. (Frankly, it's surprising that people this backwards were able to fill in the ballot correctly.) However, there are billions of people all over the world who think Mr. Trump is wrong thinking. The only good thing that can come of his presidency is that shame might force sensible Americans to take out the trash.

"In a few days Americans will go to the polls and elect a new president. Barring some unusual outcome, it will be either Hillary Clinton, a lifelong politician or Donald Trump, a “wealth celebrity.” I think if Clinton wins you will have eight more years of business as usual, circling the drain. I think if Trump wins you will circle no more."

People are idiots. Of this fact we can be certain as history points to our crimes, both against the Earth and each other. We can be genius, occasionally, briefly noted along our mapping modernity, prolonged self-destruction. Affairs may have gotten a bit more pressing recently, what with some of us stomping around, ceaselessly devouring. Our attitudes will have to change. Or many will have to die, maybe both. These things are inevitable. Thus, we have to get off this planet.
It's the perfect task. It's the correct goal. True we have made the aforementioned mistakes and some of us continue to do so, but it cannot be said that there isn't a new paradigm afoot. The human species, having been connected together by technology, has decided change is required, hastily. The twenty-first century promising a new enlightenment by way of a supreme arrogance. Things as they are, we simply don't have time to fret over the past when we're so amazing right now. Surely the baby cannot be blamed for shitting in his diaper.
We don't need to feel guilty about the mistakes of the past, we need to fix the future, oddly and simply by thinking about it. Everybody is predominately concerned with making money. This is an extremely present mindset and not conducive to future planning. It's hard to find the time to daydream about space travel when you forgot to pick up Timmy from soccer practice because you're tired from working two jobs. We don't have to get rid of money, (although it would solve almost every problem,) or have everyone start wearing white robes. We can't cease our efforts to correct past mistakes, for we can't all leave. Cleaning up sounds like a good start. Eventually we'll run out of dinosaur goo and everything will have to change, preferences and profit be damned. Still, no amount of work done by our lot will change the fact that the Earth could shake us all off like fleas. The Sun could burp in our direction and fry us in place, creating a planetary Pompeii. Leaving the Earth is mandatory for human survival in the long run. I'm asking just that we start thinking about that. Individually we are a tiny sum of a magnificent existence, we can only be valuable while thinking about the whole.
Every new tomorrow gets us one step closer to being able, but the drive to imagine has been distracted and corrupted. This has happened, is happening and will continue to happen in the future because, as I said, people are idiots. Usually, we get greedy, then we get lazy, then we get spoiled. It happened in Rome, it happens elsewhere now. This sort of behaviour needs to be corrected, for everyone's sake. Celebrate not celebrity, worship wisdom and intelligence, favour reason over profit, cooperation over competition. Ask not what is in this life for you, for you will have it anyway and but what you leave for the future. We can be a planet of philosophers, forcing the hands of non-philosopher Kings. We can do it on our own because we must. Accept that as fact and begin.
"What are we all here for?
We're all here to go into space.
The Earth is going to be a space station and we're all here to go into space.
But what are you and you and you here for?"

"The theory that Google is becoming or enacting SkyNet has been around since at least 2009. SkyNet for those of you that don’t know, is a fictional, self-aware artificial intelligence that controls the Terminator, among other things, in the movie franchise of the same name. In the story, SkyNet decides humans must die (the reason, “self-preservation” is not exactly relevant) and the War with the Machines begins. In reality, Google is at the forefront of all things technological and either by accident, design or perhaps both simultaneously, continues toward making SkyNet a possibility."
