“His response was to fight it with the only weapons at hand—passive resistance and open displays of contempt.” ― Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan
Well- for those who’ve been following: *sigh* It seems another of my neighbors is moving out. This has been a pattern for a decade and counting.
Someone moves in near or next to me. Then, my internet connection becomes like a ping pong match of connectivity, and other things.
Or- my new neighbor puts up party lights, and maybe- somewhere in or around their abode- a lizard.
I dunno- maybe I should just learn to be ‘alright’ with funny looks across the yard, and people peeking out from behind oddly configured or deliberately situated blinds.
Or- just keep my mouth shut about the hidden tools and practices that fuel the ride on the fast track slippery slopes of a society that runs on secrecy and illegal entrapment schemes by hidden people doing hidden things- officially hidden people in government; and total wannabe heros on Twitter; and #goodguys who are INFRAGARD IT professionals working for the children via Boys and Girls clubs of America.
Jimmy Saville has nothing on these men and women….
Yeah- maybe I should just quit writing. It works the #goodguys up a lot- they jump in their Batman cars; Crown Vic Interceptors, helicopters; firetrucks- and race away, some of them, at $1700 per call.
Naw- that would be very isolating, I think. It would feel shitty. I would wonder if I’m the only one; and doubt it, knowing that there are historical patterns to hidden government actions and the people who actuate them.
Maybe- if I just didn’t notice the comings and goings of unmarked cars in my alley; or the congregations of marked ones, I would be alright.
But really- no one should be alright with that.
