Americans have a death wish, collectively and individually. It’s most obvious right now when you’re out on the roads but if you’re looking you can see brinksmanship in everything from hyperinflation to trucker convoys. It’s death cultism all the way down. I imagine it’s the same elsewhere in the West, based on the behavior of other countries. This will become important in prognosticating beyond 2025.
To sum up:https://aeolipera.wordpress.com/2022/01/17/more-predictions-owl-convo/
2022 Half-hearted political mania
2023 Full-hearted cult mania and binge “investing” (Year of the Grift)
2024 Everybody wakes up cuffed to a motel bed next to a goat and their money is gone.
Presidential election gets out of hand that year, mask comes off and doesn’t go back on.
2024 will be the year when narcissistic rage turns into a psychotic break.
There are only a couple of ways to deal with homeless psychotics demanding the America they were promised.
TPTB will act accordingly.
2025 will herald the real economic despair.
As I’ve mentioned before, 2020 heralded the end because now everybody knows that everybody knows everybody is full of shit and just pretending to believe what they say, and nothing changed, which is why things are progressing in a more or less deterministic fashion now. It’s like a Texas Hold ‘Em game where everyone’s shown their cards and now we’re just waiting on the dealer.
Getting back to death wishes, most Americans have the kind of death wish that motivates unsuccessful suicide attempts among teenage girls, addictions to depressants in adult men, and willful ignorance in normies. It’s more of a pity party than anything, and even if the results are occasionally serious it’s more of an accident. You can’t negotiate with brinksmanship but it at least has a “means to an end” type of logic to it which may come around to a post-terrorism logic eventually. Faced with death, i.e. having a “rock bottom” moment, maybe 2/3 of such people have the epiphany that they’re grown-ass adults and Mom isn’t coming to the rescue (more than likely she’s tried and been repeatedly rebuffed). They come to terms with the fact that, regardless of how bad previous authority figures were, “we authority now”. You can look forward to people doing this en masse in 2026 or so when the US’s strategic reserve of lies runs out.
Then there’s the more serious kind of death wish where people have their rock bottom moment and decide to take vengeance in an orgy of destruction and self-destruction.
What makes a man like Ringo, Doc? What makes him do the things he does?
A man like Ringo has got a great big hole, right in the middle of himself. And he can never kill enough, or steal enough, or inflict enough pain to ever fill it.
What does he want?
Not only can you not negotiate with someone like this, you can’t show any mercy either. It’s cartoon villainy that’s intelligent and daring and never rests. It’s Satanism without the Luciferian ambition and systemizing autism of Aleister Crowley types. Proper Satanism, as in a rebellion against God’s creation (of which they are a part). You’ll also start seeing this en masse in 2026, but the phenomenon won’t enter the national consciousness until the other types start getting serious about their own survival circa 2027 and realize you can’t build anything while other people in the group are proactively tearing it down. It’s hard to impress upon a normie that some people and populations are intractable problems, so we’ll see if they make the jump out of pure self-interest. If they do things may get interesting.
As usual when I think about things like this, I realize I’m talking about Berserk, because this is the whole bit with the berserker armor and the choice between pursuing vengeance on Griffith and protecting Casca.
