Thanks to your incredible support The Asylum is up and running again!
Things looked bleak indeed and I didn’t know how to provide you guys with enough medication keeping you obedient and docile – as every citizen should be.
My worries are gone now thanks to your kindness and hands-on-solidarity!
Let me not only express my gratitude for what you (thanks to Phil who pointed it all out) did but also tell you that your support is my obligation not only to keep going on but to develop this project even further and to keep trying to boldly go where no blog has ever dared to look under.
This also applies to the doings of strange people living in a barren wilderness fighting Sasquatch as well as nurses or guys living on a very strange continent which no one really feels the need to see.
The continent, not the guys.
And no: it’s not Antarctica I’m talking about. The land of the Penguins should be quite attractive compared to this…er… please forget I even mentioned it.
I thought of thanking each and everyone of you personally for helping to keep The Asylum afloat but that would be too much a boost for your self esteem which is something we cannot have in times of constant crisis – especially with the WuFlu lurking wherever joy and fun is to be found. You see, people with a high self esteem tend to become a nuisance to any honest dictatorship since they generally are far too self reliant to be pampered into terminal addiction to governmental handouts which is generously provided by the taxpayer’s money.
Since the government loves you unconditionally it also wants to provide you with an unconditional income.
It’s like some mother that doesn’t want her children to grow up, keeping them at home, sheltering them from real life while still breastfeeding them for as long “as it is good for them” – forever would suffice. She’s doing everything she can to have her children convinced that they desperately need her and that they couldn’t do without her.
Every sane person knows where some scenario like that would be leading to. Everyone knows it’s not just insane but ultimately deadly.
Yet there’s enough people voluntarily handing themselves over to such an insanity. It’s because the government and all her experts know best what to do and how to behave. Never mind that it was them who created these problems in the first place – what matters is that there’s someone who’s telling them what to believe, what to say, what to do, whom to blame and fight and – ultimately – when to die.
Everyone seems to be caught in this treadmill more or less and only few are immune against that scheme. Some of them are still doing their part within that system because they haven’t yet found their way out or because they’re still dependent on it in order to make ends meet.
I can’t tell you the way out. I am nobody’s savior. I am trying to find a way out myself and it would be preposterous for someone like me trying to point out a possible way which I haven’t walked myself.
What matters though is the right mindset:
will do just nicely.
Actually I believe it’s the only mindset that will be helpful in the long run.
That’s why I feel at home in your company my friends. And I think that’s the reason you were helping out.
Lets find a way out of this together!
