Mind you, in our age of supposed enlightenment and nearly blinding illumination, up here on the peak of Evolution in the 21st Century, some of what these voices for truth like Raimondo have to say isn't always exactly popular, and perhaps at times downright politically incorrect.
After all, he dares to insinuate at the end of his article that we are headed for a new set of Dark Ages, instead of the long heralded New Age of blissful New World Order, enlightenment and peace and happiness for everyone.
And now, isn't that just the type of stuff we all dread to hear!
We want news of happiness and sunshine, of Nobel peace price winning presidents and starlets turning filthy rich over night, and tales of long lasting plenty and opulence for all.
After all, don't we deserve it?
- For like having made it all the way to the frosty ol' peak of Mt. Evolute?
But maybe not so.
Well, I don't have to tell you why I liked that article, since any of the handful of readers of this blog know by now that my world view would rightly grant me the title "Mr. Bad News" (since "Dr. Doom" is already taken), and when I look around, I can only confirm Mr. Raimondo's observation:
Smells like Dark Ages.
Am I a pessimist?
But then, if you know me, I'm also very optimistic when it comes to the ultimate destiny of our home planet.
I know we're in good hands.
The problem is, "Good Hands" also has a mouth, and His prognosis only confirms the Dark Ages forecast.
So, I'm not really a pessimist as I'm simply a believer in a different Source of information than all those false prophets of peace and fair-weather-happily-ever-after.
A much more reliable Source, as far as my personal experiences are concerned...
To put it bluntly: eventually, it seems as if sooner or later, at some point in time, some of us are probably going to die. (This may come as a shock, but cheer up, here's the good news:)
The good news is, that it may turn out to be not all too bad in case we should.
And here's why:
According to Dinesh D'Souza, the evidence for a life after death is sufficient to enable him to safely make the statement that it is both reasonable and "good for us" to believe in such.
Again, my personal Source of information has been confirming that statement and observation since just about forever.
So, cheer up! Things could be worse. And they probably will be, but only in order to get a lot better.
What is there to be grumpy about when the worst thing that could possibly happen to you (as in "kicking the bucket") is simultaneously probably the best thing that could possibly happen to you? - Unless perhaps you're on the list of those who are working so feverishly on converting our former paradise into hell on earth for a good lot of us...
And you can't evade reaping what you've sown.
(But then you're not exactly a likely candidate for reading this blog, either, so I don't have to worry about you.)
For the rest of us, it's "Bring on the night!" - Because that's what it will take in order to bring a New Dawn for real.
Again, the bad news about our new Dark Age is: it's real, and it's going to be bad.
I mean really bad: the worst ever.
The good new is: it's not going to be a very long "Dark Age" this time around, at all, because our Friend in Charge promised He's going to even shorten that time for us.
So, the proper term for what's expecting us might be: A Super-Dark Mini-Age.
That doesn't sound all that bad anymore, does it? So how's that for an amateur optimist? Am I doing good, or what?
And always keep your focus on what's coming after it! It's going to be well worth the pain in the behind that our politicians are currently bestowing upon us.
Happy Ending guaranteed!
Just be sure you only pack the essential for the journey ahead. "Travel lite!" is the slogan of the hour: Whether it's Jesus or the Inquisition coming for you, you most likely won't be able to take your furniture with you!
