I’ve been predicting a return to quilting bees, barn dances and bobbing for apples for about fifteen or twenty years, now, to general laughter. I think we’re turning the corner, right now.

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,

Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,

Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,

One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne

In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,

One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them,

In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

 

J.R.R. Tolkien, from “The Fellowship of the Ring”, 1954

That’s what the second quote up above says to me.

Many or most of the populace don’t yet consciously grasp that all the electronic media we consume is a Death-Energy-delivery-vehicle on the down-low. Because they’ve been tirelessly assured that the Ether does not exist. Wilhelm Reich called that Death Energy “Dead Orgone Radiation.”

Yet, despite not being consciously aware, you’ll see in the recent news articles I’ve collected below how people are consuming less and less of all manner of media.

If you asked them why, they might say “because it sucks”, and, to be fair, it does suck. However, in a way they do not yet fully conceive.

I’ve been predicting a return to quilting bees, barn dances and bobbing for apples for about fifteen or twenty years, now, to general laughter.

I think we’re turning the corner, right now. I think that, having seen the error of its ways, humanity moving back to a life that is more wholesome and fulfilling.

    I meant to comment sooner, even with the article pointing out the trend to go back to dumb phones, the author hedges in the end by making it sound crazy for doing so, subtly of course!
