The End of Days
This is it then, the last seven days until the end of the world. A clock that has been counting down for the past 5 millenia is about to run out and mankind is doomed. That’s according to the Mayans anyway. They predicted the end of the world on 21st December 2012, somehow…I don’t think so.
To begin with, if these Mayan lads were so clever they’d still be around today. This calender everyone is on about is misinterpreted, all calenders have to end sometime; according to my calender the end is on the 31st, but not to worry, I’ve got another one due to kick in on the 1st January. It is not surprising that ancient writings have been misinterpreted, we’re human we misinterpret just about everything: eg The Bible, The Qu’ran etc.
They say the Hopi tribe know something’s up, they’re heading back to their sacred places. They should get a move on, they’ve been doing that for years.
Some say that global warming will kill us all. Some say that manmade global warming is the biggest hoax since the moon landings yet still they peddle it to us on the news. (You can argue all you want about the moon landings, whether you believe it or not is up to you.)
You can point to all the dreadful things that have been happening around the world and match them up with prophecies, but we’ve been looking for signs of the end of days since we swung down from the trees. Everytime there was an eclipse or a comet was sighted in the sky we scurried back into our caves and told each other that the end was nigh.
Perhaps we will be struck by a comet or giant asteroid, maybe we will be fried in a solar storm, what if the sun doesn’t rise tomorrow? Will there be a great plague and pestilence? Could there be a mass extinction? Will The Rapture signal our end? Nah, probably not.
Yet there is a feeling that it is building up to something significant. Look at the world events since the turn of the millenium: constant war around the world, a global financial meltdown, unrest in the Middle East. It’s all seeming to come to a head – will it spell the end? Again…nah.
What I believe could and should happen is we get to a point, hopefully sometime soon, where we say “STOP!” Without the will of the people there can be no more wars fought for the corporations who are making trillions from the deaths and misery of the poor around the world. We don’t really want to see women and children bombed do we? People dragged out of their homes and brutalised. Ah but, hold on, what about the terror threat? 1) Don’t believe everything you are told; 2) Research every story in the mainstream media, you’ll be very surprised just how much of it is true; 3) Isn’t it obvious that if you hit a dog with a stick enough times he will eventually turn around and bite you? (Please note: I don’t advocate hitting dogs or any other animal with sticks just to see if this theory can be proven, also I would like to state categorically that I am not comparing any race or creed to dogs. There’s always somebody prepared to take offence at something isn’t there?)
We want to be free to communicate with each other over the internet, to talk and share ideas and to be able to walk down the street without our government spying on us and treating us as suspected criminals. We want to know what’s actually in vaccines before they are pumped into childrens’ arms. We don’t want people in other countries and on other continents to go without when we have so much. We want the banks who have stolen from us to be brought to justice for their crimes and give us our money back!
We want our politicians to stop kissing the arses of corporations and actually do the job that we elected them to do: to be a government of, for and by the people. To protect us from harm and stand as a buffer against the molestation of big business and the financial giants.
One day, maybe, we will have a world where everyone can live together in peace. I don’t know if that could ever be possible when there is so much profit to be made from war, but if enough of us want it bad enough…?
