We are all collapsing.
Our bodies are collapsing, our possessions are collapsing, our loves are collapsing, our worlds are ultimately collapsing. The collapse is already present.
Either we want to see those breakdowns, or we can continue to live with ignorance – all under the delusions of grandeur, which make such disintegration worse. The questions do not relate so much to the collapse itself – but how we can handle such catastrophes and not suffer the consequences from our ongoing downfalls.
How many gloom and doom websites, like the Christian mad people screaming on the streets with placards, have proclaimed the imminent apocalypse of the System? Even after they have failed at their divination, many mad people have still predicted and prophesied the approximate date and time of the Great Destruction. Whether they have used the Book of the Apocalypse or any other mystical reading, they have continually adhered to their bizarre theories on the Ultimate Collapse.
We are currently inside of the collapse and it will only get worse. Like our own human lives of suffering, collapses are often evolutionary, historical processes, not revolutionary events. Yes, there are wars, invasions and deluges – but they often attack when the powerful least expect them. And so, after a certain, short period of severe suffering, everyone thus knows that the collapse has happened.
The next questions move towards the different types of future collapses. Will they become political, political-economic, political-economic-military, or even a political-social-cultural-economic-military, total and complete event, or will everything transform into a sudden meteor attack, alien destruction, or an EMP crash, or some other foreseeable monstrosity?
The future does seems desolate.
The collapse will first arrive from inside ourselves. The states around the world know this truth, This is the reason governments are stockpiling weapons and allowing the police forces to wreak havoc against us. We, the powerless subjected ones, fail to understand the truths of history.
Some armchair historians, or just the outspoken ones, like to harp on the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire as the true method of the collapse. Very few of them have actually read any parts from Edward Gibbon’s tome, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. So, for the sake of history, and since I am an Anarchist Doctor Historian, I will write about how that collapse was a very specific one in world history, and how it is almost impossible to compare one particular historical collapse to another future collapse.
First, the Roman Empire did not collapse on September 4th, 476 AD, or 1540 years ago. The Roman Emperor was not living in Rome at the time, but in Ravenna, since the city of Rome had recently suffered destructive invasions from the Germanic non-aligned Roman armies, the Goths and the Vandals, first around the 410s, and later during the 450s.
Second, the Roman Empire was not one Empire, but two. There was a Western Roman Empire and an Eastern Roman Empire. The Eastern Roman Empire was the stronger one, which explains the move of the western capital from Rome to Ravenna, which was on the Adriatic Sea that faced the eastern empire.
The Eastern Roman Empire with its capital at Constantinople would seize the great mantle of Rome, and especially after the Conquests of Justinian about hundred years later, the 500s. The east then transcended into the great, universal, Christian, medieval Greek-speaking civilization, called Byzantium.
This Second Roman Empire would last another thousand years, until its final invasion and destruction through the Muslim Turk Advance in 1453 AD. The Turks would then grasp the great mantle of Rome through becoming the Sultanate of Rum of the Sublime Port of Istanbul, or the Ottoman Empire, until its own destruction after WWI in 1922 AD. Meanwhile, there were other European Empires that claimed the Roman mantle.
There was the so-called, Holy Roman Empire of the First German Reich, which also lasted a thousand years, from 800-1806 AD. Napoleon’s French Empire dissolved the Germanic First Reich and created the German Confederation. The First Russian Empires under the Czar, beginning with the Czar, or Russian Caesar, Ivan III, proclaimed Muscovite Russia as The Third Rome, in the 1490s, which would later end in 1917 AD, when the Communist Bolsheviks seized power.
The Venetian Naval-Mercantile Empire, during its height of power in the 15th century, the 1400s, proclaimed itself La Serenissima, or The Serene Sublime Republic. The Catholic Popes of Rome during the height of their power during the Renaissance, 1450-1500 AD, through administering their own princely properties, The Papal States, self-anointed themselves the titles of Caesar declaring themselves the true heirs of Roman imperial domination.
The modern varieties of European imperialist empires also joined the auto-proclaimed, Neo-Roman Empire club. During the 1500s, the Spanish empire copied the Aurelian Roman cult of Sol Invictus, which was popular during the decade of the 270s AD. The Emperor Constantine used this god as one of his protectors, called the Conquering Sun God. The Spanish Habsburg kings stated that their empire was donde nunca se ponía el Sol, or where the Sun never sets. The British Empire around 1914 AD asserted the exact same imperial garbage. Britain’s Children Crusade of WWI would put an end to that arrogance quickly.
The French Colonial Empire during the 1690s, under King Louis XIV, proclaimed himself, Le Roi Soleil, or the Sun King, since the French now controlled grand dominions in the Americas, such as Canada, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint-Domingue and Louisianne, and this empire possessed colonial outpost cities along the coasts of West Africa and southeastern India. Three hundred years later, during the 1990s, Amerikan elite sociopaths began to compare themselves to the Roman Empire – after the downfall of the Soviet Russian system. Our entire Earth still suffers from such imperial madness.
So, if the Roman Empire did not fall on September 4th, 476 AD, what truly did happen during the Great Roman Imperial Collapse?
The correct historical answer was that the Western Roman Empire did fall – and then transformed itself into two major power blocs. The first power bloc represented the political-economic-military might of the Germano-Roman Generals and their armies, and the second one personified the Christian Bishop headquarter-cities and their religious mob armies. The ancient, major cities of the Roman world were Constantinople, Turkey; Rome, Italy; Antioch, Syria; and Alexandria, Egypt. Through the death of one system, the early medieval world had birthed another culture.
On September 4th, 476 AD, The German-Roman general Flavius Odoacer, stood before the last Western Roman Emperor, Romulus Augustus, and forced him to give up his throne. Romulus had no choice because Odoacer commanded the strongest army in the field during that historical period. Odoacer wanted the emperor position all to himself. Odoacer had also recently killed Augustus’ father in battle in order to finally seize power.
Augustus accepted the offers, and simply retired to an imperial villa, spending his last days in aristocratic idleness and degeneracy – until he too died not long after. Odoacer proved that he was a strong and powerful dictator-leader. But like all political contests, the most ambitious and heinous often win the prizes. Another German-Roman general with an even stronger army, named Theodoric, then killed Odoacer, and took over the Roman throne.
The last Western Roman king had already represented the great fool of empire. His name was taken from the founder of Rome, Romulus, and the other name, from the first Roman emperor, Augustus. The respect given to him was minimal since he was still an adolescent when crowned, and his father put the boy on the throne.
Most Romans referred to such an ’emperor’ as Momylus Augustulus, which meant the ‘little disgraceful emperor.’ The one year emperor kid did get his ugly mug stamped on the debased Roman gold coins however, which proclaimed ‘prosperity and victory’ underneath the mug face.
Always remember the six laws of history – irony is everywhere. Even before his removal from the throne, most Romans knew that the western part was ready to end. Saint Augustine had finished his book, The City of God, which explained such a collapse, about 40 years before.
We see the complex nature of historical collapses. What about the current imperial monstrosity, the Amerikan Empire of Sociopaths? It is collapsing right now as of writing this essay – but it is of a very different type of collapse.
Think of its coming collapse as millions of balloons filled with a strange gas slowly suffocating human heads; but instead of slowly deflating – they are slowly inflating. Eventually, such sick balloons filled with an even greater amount of putrid gases – will burst their holes.
Many writers on the Internet have surmised that the elites seem oblivious to such a coming collapse within the Amerikan Empire. This is not true. The Amerikan political-economic elites are very much aware that a collapse is immanent and this is the reason the US government has been stockpiling weapons in all of its federal agencies – including the Department of Education!
The Federal, state and municipal governments have continually supported increase police repression: on the roads, in the schools, at public events, and on the sidewalks. The Federal Government has increased TSA harassment in the airports, and for those living near international borders, Border Patrol harassment on road checkpoints. This is also the reason the elites are incessantly trying to legally strangle the last holdout amendment on the Bill of Rights: the Second Amendment. All of these gradual methods soften the wills of our less courageous citizens in fighting such abuses.
Yet, like good sociopaths, they are desperately trying to hide their evil visages through passing more bogus reform laws and legislation. These Amerikan politician tactics are only slowly suffocating their victims.
For example, our self-proclaimed leaders increase minimum wages, yet regularly cut unemployment benefits – and refuse any monetary help to the permanently unemployed. They want more overtime pay for workers, yet they increase the legalization of illegal immigrant workers, and then allow whatever Amerikan industry to hire more foreign workers on the H-1B and F-I visa systems.
The corporate mainstream media blame us for not spending more, yet our saved capital sits in the zero interest rate banks, which only decreases our savings annually. The pundits demand that we work harder, meanwhile the only growth industries are government hack jobs and service industry McJobs. The highest paid workers are the ones that do no useful work. The top dogs only administrate and act the executive.
The politicians offer supposed tax rebates after filing returns, yet they also increase the allowed taxable income amounts each year – on all Americans, whether they can pay or not pay. The US government wants more Americans to own homes, yet both rental and buying costs keep going up as wage salaries keep dropping, inflation continues to increase, and property taxes almost never drop. The only exceptions represent distant, agricultural rural areas.
There’s more to this deceitful madness. The elites offer us the vote, as long as we vote for either Product R or Product D every few years. The same state apparatus in D.C. wants more people attending rip-off, expensive higher education courses through taking out student loans with low-interest rates. But this same cabal will never mandate that those same ‘schools’ guarantee any future employment for the millions of suckers now caught in the debt slavery prison.
The state criminals want opportunities for the millions of ex-cons without any future. At the same time however, the US Congress and state legislatures deluge the law books with thousands of more possible felonies, which in turn, increase the prisoner population to become the highest in the world – and even the highest in world history!
Those same political cliques love to start various wars and murder millions across the globe – and of course, they truly love ‘thanking our veterans’. But if our veterans have the label ‘disabled’ through the corrupt Veterans Administration system, then why do they want to take away their gun rights – and even deny certain medical plans?
For the sake of this essay, I will not continue the list. But hopefully all readers can understand how the balloons with the strange gases have already strangled so many human heads both inside and outside its latex infernos. The stifling contradictions and inconsistencies of the Monster have only augmented.
We might think we are safe – but sociopaths always look for newer victims. We are on the list too – but so are they. All inflated and deflated balloons eventually pop – and so will this group. Once the first hole opens, the strange gas will spread forth everywhere – it will become a strange collapse indeed. Emperor Kid, Romulus Augustulus should be so lucky.
