Life Is All An Illusion (You Know, Like The Political Situation In America, Now)


As you can see above, it can be (and has been) persuasively argued - for culture - 1976 was "Year Zero", when Punk started everything over by taking a three-chord sledgehammer to what had come before.   
Of course, "Year Zero" in politics - 1984 - was predicted by George Orwell in 1948, resulting in the farce of today's media insisting 2+2=5, and we saw a fair election, when we saw no such thing.
Like many today, Poor George didn't see the NewAge Movement's "Year Zero" in spirituality - 1987's Harmonic Convergence - playing a role in much of anything when he wrote:
“One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’ draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, ‘Nature Cure’ quack, pacifist, and feminist in England.”

But, here we are, in America, and - thanks to The Democrat Party - talk of ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communismhave definitely been in the air. What goes unmentioned - and it always seems determinedly so - is the smell of burning sage, wafting from former President Barack Obama's side of the aisle.
