"Changes Are Coming"
17 Comments - Show Original Blog

Maybe some day we'll all be making music, paint, write poetry and prose and share it openly and freely through internet. We have too many rock stars, too many bestsellers, too much brilliance, glamor and dazzle and not enough depth and connection with others. I'm looking forward for the collapse of the entertainment industry, so that art can belong to the people, not the self-aggrandizement of individual artists or the profits of their corporate sponsors. I can only see these changes as liberating. Art without profit. That would be great.

It is with fear that I read your accounts of what we are facing, yet when thinking of it we are destined without recourse in most of these situations.

interesting and informative facts Regis, thank you. As for the point on privacy, I remember my father's words when I rushed into the house all excited with " Daddy !
Daddy ! President Kennedy is in a car on Elizabeth Avenue!"

He lifted his beer bottle gingerly, looked me in the eye and said: " If the president wants to see me, he knows where I am."

Incredible batch of info including many things I too have been concerned about. It really does make me want to throw away my computer and cell phone and hit the woods where my privacy can be respected. But oops! That's right! There are also cameras in the sky. I guess there is no escaping it. I feel like I'm in jail!

A well-stated image of our transition to post-industrialism. Back in the 1970s when the transition was discovered, it was thought of as 'good.'

The danger, we have realized, is that the manipulators of wealth have insured their survival while abandoning the working American. Without better education, most will be unable t make the transition, creating a huge pool of have nots only consuming time and resources.

I bet the people at the pony express once had this same conversation...of course, the impact wasn't exactly the same.

Golly what a happy piece Regis.

I still subscribe to TWO newspapers and have TWO landlines. TV programing is shit and can die for all I care. Our lack of producing anything but debt is our Achilles heel which is already injured.

You have such a
unique way of
sorting all these
items out

Feeding your own
readers the facts
of such impending

Jarring them into
the reality that
swims around them
every day

Thanks for the
read and all of
you work putting
this together in

That we may see
better around
with these eyes

My friend, to prove you wrong about my dear sweet America, I began listing in my head the numbers of conveniences I use on a daily basis and it scared the hell out of me.

27" color tv
Modern telephone, it still does tricks I have not figured out how to use.
Cell phone
Computer w/ flat screen monitor
Nook, and a dwindling supply of hard cover books
High speed internet access; from which I get a lot of news, which means I do not subscribe to a daily newspaper and watch many movies.

I have been a waking talking statistic for years, as a matter of fact Safeway knows more about me and has, for a number of years, than I may know about myself.

Go to my most recent AD posting and read "This Just In" a very short futuristic look at the same things you have shared here. The funny thing is I think I live a very simple life.

Yes, this about says it all. The fall of Rome and the fall of countries who worship consumerism was and is inevitable.
