Industry processing everything…!

The reason I post so much of Wendell Berry’s (AKA, The Angry Farmer) work, is his poetry, novels, and philosophical works are all about activism, ecology, industrialization, and humanity in general, (not intellectual masturbation). The fact that industrialization has made it so humanity can really no longer get along within this paradigm of polarization, war driven economy, and consumerism, that it has embraced this potentially fatal new world order that has been prepared for us, (out of a subconscious desperation) and is about to have the very lifeblood that keeps us breathing cut off somewhere along the line, perhaps very soon. I believe this to be taking place as we speak.

I would think, all this would give way to a more serious examination by the masses, as to just how this is all taking place, and why, and for that we have to turn to people who are qualified to speak on these matters with some level of expertise, and humanitarian intentions, which in this day and age is very hard to find. So writers like Berry, Zinn, Hedges, Chomsky as hard on the eyes and ears as they can be need a hearing, if we are to get any prospective on other than the prospective of “Pac Man” and his insatiable appetite …

We have been dumbed down and uneducated by propaganda doled out by the Industrial Royals to the point we no longer see the forest through the trees. It seems as long as enough of us are feed well, fat, and living a good life, the hell with the rest, (its a numbers game) the problem with that is “we” also will be a part of “the rest” here very soon if “we” don’t look closely to the last 60 years or so, and see the patterns being implemented right under our noses by “The Royals”…

Berry breaks this down piece by piece in all his work, he shows how allowing this to continue “will” sever the very thread that ties us to something that makes humanity so very special, Love, Community, Benevolence, &c. and is now degrading bit by bit, and encouraging humanity to devolve into something far worse than any of the other creatures occupying this planet, BY FAR, in terms of destroying the very mother that gave birth to us (Earth), not to mention pissing all over the gift God provided.

Yet because Berry isn’t a shiny, hip, pop BS artist, nor is he concerned with any of that whatsoever, his huge, eloquent body of work goes somewhat unread by mainstream students today, even though Yale, Harvard, and every other major university nearly begs for his presents at their conferences…Just another example of a culture trained by its masters to always look to the shiny object dangling from the string held by the hypnotists, hired by the deformed leeches feeding on the populous…SMH..!

“The passive American consumer, sitting down to a meal of pre-prepared food, confronts inert, anonymous substances that have been processed, dyed, breaded, sauced, gravied, ground, pulped, strained, blended, prettified, and sanitized beyond resemblance to any part of any creature that ever lived. The products of nature and agriculture have been made, to all appearances, the products of industry. Both eater and eaten are thus in exile from biological reality.”
Wendell Berry
