Rome literally burned while the 'Plebs' watched the gladiatorial games

Give the people Bread and Circuses. Bread and Circuses'..The trope name (Latin: Panem et Circenses) comes from Roman poet Juvenal's metaphor for people being willing to give up civic responsibility for a reasonably stable status quo (the 'circus' in question being an arena for spectator sports like races). When the people are well-fed and having fun, they are not likely to protest against those in charge, leaving them theoretically free to do as they please..
So that is why there is such a culture of this - It is okay to drink beer, get half naked, paint yourself and scream at overpaid steroid head cry-baby entertainers, all the while psudo-fulfilling your suppressed hunter and self-identity desires.

Dare to do the same, say rally against injustice, the madness of the governments, or something else that really matters - and you are deemed estranged from 'so-called' society.

Destruction is the catalysis for change.

In a few more days, it will be three months of living out of hotels.

I never thought I would be seeing the ocean again so soon...too bad I won't be able to enjoy it - go 910 airlift wing!

Speaking of seeing the ocean, 311 - beautiful disaster. 3-11? or Tool - ├ćnema. Or Emma-O - then "Pull" an 'Ike and blame the moon being closer than ever before. Siva Nai No Kami the old gods showing up again to say something destroyed shows the need for a new and different way. The water breaks and we are birthed 'a new. Do you feel the calling from these old gods? They say switch to a new energy break the cycle, cut the head off of the Ouroboros, of the dependence of nuclear and oil.

The people in the middle-east hear it. Too bad its a re-hash of Operation El Dorado Canyon all over again...

People will say this summer, $6 gas? Why don't we try something else, lest we destroy ourselves over and over again.

"Let the future tell the truth, and Evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs. The future, for which I have really worked, is mine" - Tesla's last words. It is sad when someone does great works, they die, and get erased from the books - to be replaced by government stealing and twisting their work, over-classified and used 'for the great work'. We can't put a meter on it? Well then let it go broke!

"Folks, it's time to evolve. That's why we're troubled. You know why our institutions are failing us, the church, the state, everything's failing? It's because, um –

they're no longer relevant!" - Bill Hicks
