Especially DOOMED is when a CULTURE gets away from the principles of the golden rule (for everyone on earth), and starts replacing its societal aims of maintaining "excellent" citizenry with a dog eat dog reward system for material possessions.
Lesson 1. IF YOU OBEY EVERY ORDER GIVEN... SANTA WILL THEN GET YOU A TOY.
What a lesson to teach children!!
Lesson 2. SANTA CAN MAKE YOU HAPPIER THAN MOMMY AND DADDY or the SPIRIT OF FELLOWSHIP.
Shut up and watch the cartoon!
Then SANTA is on TV just like sesame street...
As a baby, Before you learned to pay close attention to what the TV was doing you noticed a squeaky high pitched voice coming from the light color box that sang songs that was different than all the rest you had ignored before as you sat in the room playing with blocks. It was the "red menace" ELMO!
Then one morning:
Look! SANTA brought you a physical "tickle me elmo" doll to prove that tv IS PHYSICALLY REAL and something you could touch as EVERYONE YOU LOVED WAS THERE SMILING ABOVE YOU STANDING WITH APPROVAL when he vibrated in your arms for the first time!
HOLY SHIT! The baby thinks...That TV is real! I better do what it says!
Before this moment the baby thought TV was just a music box that played songs with bright varying flashing colors that he/or she didn't really pay much attention to unless mommy/daddy sang songs from it with them.
PARENTS WAITED IN LINE TO HELP BRAINWASH THEIR CHILDREN WITH THIS TOY that ended up vibrating in all of our landfills shortly thereafter (like a collective dildo F****** the planet).
SANTA today IS JUST A STORY OF BETRAYEL told by the PARENTS that were taught THE LIE by a syndicated claymation paid for by GENERAL ELECTRIC and COCA COLA. They watched it when they were kids so now it is a family tradition! DURKA DURKA!
Planned out BY GREEDY EXECUTIVES WITH PSYCHOLOGICAL RESEARCHER EMPLOYEES Like a football GAME with one winner and a bunch of losers that is the SANTA CLAUS MONEY TRAIN value system. It continues to EAT THE PLANET/PEOPLE IN IT. You don't want to be the unpopular kid that doesn't have the latest sneakers in school do you? AS SEEN ON TV.
As Socrates would say that music is more important than gymnastics even though both should be taught, he would also say that Philosophers that work for think tank corporations trying to make a buck BASTARDIZE TRUE philosophy/science as they have biases. They are not fit to raise future generations of a state.
He would argue that while they are inevitable tools used by kings, they are not the philosophers he thinks would run a perfect society. They are profiteers/ employees serving the kings material aims first, and the only philosophy/science they produce with their efforts is done to promote wealth for their bosses NOT GOOD GOVERNMENT/citizenry.
So when a society pays FOOTBALL players MILLIONS of dollars and teachers slightly above the poverty level you know that we are in for a rough ride.
It is a government that allows this brainwashing campaign to indoctrinate children to be better future consumers for its products isn't it?
NOT good earth citizens necessarily unless it conveniently fits the marketing goals.
Our government should protect us from these corporations by preventing MARKETING TO CHILDREN, and we should place a higher value system in life promulgating philosophy and science as a culture NOT SHINY TOYS.
I guess, what else could it be? A story? A mix of old stories and new research? It isn't a fact sheet...It is an interpretation of a story..There are no FACTS about them as the origins and purpose of these monuments are left to posterity and archaeology. With that story I know just about as much as anyone else does as I was watching a documentary on it.
It is one of the popularized views on it as presented in the documentary below.
This is one of the many documentaries on the subject..
Nature is Civilizations insurance policy...Nature is the most SUPREME technology out there...Better than your ipad
If we don't preserve the natural world as it is and foster it's development it would be like cutting humanities legs off and telling it to run. <--its bound to fall and it has happened throughout our history leaving ancient technologies to fade out of memory
I just try to rant to make a point. It is poetry. Then why do they not retain the methods on which they built the monuments? Was it that their civilization collapsed or are they just forgetful?
I don't think they are the same people as back then, and it is definitely not the same kingdom it once was at this point. The same culture would still be able to make the monuments but their techniques were lost to humanity and themselves.
I think your the one ranting
There are still natives on Rapa Nui (Easter Island).
All it would take you is three minutes of research -- but why worry about facts when you can just fuckin' rant.
This Cartoon =TRUE GENIUS!!
Santa is the reason that the country is sinking...How ironic he is complaining....
The land simply cannot support his weight since he ate Jesus and stole his powers.
I know Santa sinks a lot of people into DEBT, and that is just some of the shadow he casts on the land before "x-mass". I wonder how much of the exhaust causing "global warming" comes from his elves slave labor factories making cheap plastic toys?
I wonder if Santa is aware that his original counterpart Krampus FINALLY had his own movie this holiday season that was actually far more accurate of this holiday tradition in regards to NATURE and its roots that stemmed from PAGANS living among seemingly UNLIMITED RESOURCES.
Lastly are Santa, global warming, and Krampus real? Some say they are just lies that parents tell their children, but I they still believe it enough to tell all of my "little brothers".
Oh well..... could part two be a drowning Easter Island head?
Easter Island anyone? I just read a story on how that island civilization collapsed due to human over development by devastating nature in order to make STONE monument IDOLS (they claimed were their ancestors) and farmland. Then the birds that shit on the ground to fertilize the soil went extinct leaving the people to horribly kill each other off over diminishing resources due to failing crops (since they killed off all of the natural world for organized plot farming and cities).... Now the stone monuments are all that is left of them...
Is this the ghost of Easter Island's past? Or the Ghost of Charleston's future?
I wonder where Santa was back then when they needed him most>?
Long ago and far away, the parents of Jesus were refugees.
"When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt." - Leviticus 19:33-34
Well we know by research that it wasn't The Lord Jesus Christ that was born on Dec. 25, and we also know by that same matter, that there were not three wise men who was at His Birth, they Saw the Child when He was about two or three years old in His Home with His Mother . and they were not "Kings", they were Magi which means they were advisers to the King. This is all in the Holy Bible if one reads and studies it. This is who is being celebrated on Dec 25 "Christmas" "Nimrod" the first King on the earth after the great Flood. The evil one , he was the g- grandson of Noah through Ham and Cush was his father another evil one and they were the ones who Built the tower of Babel to war against God.
My reply: I made a video about x-mas and what it is as a response to your cartoon.
My bad... I didn't realize that he didn't understand that the cartoon was about American resentment towards REFUGEES not ISIS. ISIS and Syrian refugees do not equate John.
Nobody likes ISIS.
Don't try to lump me in with ISIS. I just got back from over there to see it for myself. The people HATE ISIS, and say they will send them to hell.
here is a song I wrote... its a song dedicated to you John. -
Syrians Hate ISIS. What planet are you living on? ISIS is a bunch of mercenaries from abroad turned on Syria by Saudi Arabia and international corporate money interest. The Russians have pictures of ISIS stealing SYRIAN oil and transporting it to TURKEY.
It's not complicated. You turn them on each other and then steal their resources as they are no threat to you. -Standard Oil
Wake up JACKASS. Stop getting your news from the national enquirer. Or better yet start reading the national enquirer that way we can quickly and efficiently label off your jackass opinion when you start talking about "bat boy" You put the boy in bat boy didn't you?
John Byram loves his cup of hate in the morning.
What an EMBARRASSMENT to the United States of America. You are a joke, and people like you are what is attempting to destroy this country and make it another dictatorship.
Viva la revolution!
TELL THAT TO THE PEOPLE OF PARIS, PARTICULARLY THE ONES THAT SURVIVED, OR BETTER YET THE FAMLIES OF THE ONES THAT DIDN'T.WAKE UP SMELL THE DEATH THAT WILL COME TO US UNLESS WE FAIL TO TAKE ISIS'S PROMISES TO HEART, AND SNUFF THEM OUT, THE SUB HUMANS THAT THEY ARE.
You would know.
The ignorance is bliss.
Really Steve, after the charlie hebdo shooting and now the other attacks in Paris, you should rethink some of your opinions. Fellow cartoonists were killed because they used their skills.
Lindsey does not want WW3 but he has been outspoken in his belief that we need to destroy ISIS.
Vox is a shit website written by nimrods who were excused from every other respectable media organization on the internet. They're shills for neoliberal bullshit and Comcast....
Especially Comcast: http://fair.org/home/comcast-owned-vox-exp…
Vox had a interesting article claiming it's the Democrats who insist on these off year elections in order to purposely suppress the vote. Fewer voters means organized labor groups like teachers unions will have a larger impact on the outcome. If we voted for mayor on the same cycle as we vote for president, there would be much higher turnout but a more unpredictable outcome.
I'd be in it.
