We could use a little bit of magic, not slight of hand or even the illusion of magic, but some real second-coming magic. We cannot keep raising our hopes and trying to see the bright side of things and interpret horrible situations as this too shall pass.
We need someone, or a committee of someones, who can bend time- do a global de-toxification, cleanse the human condition, stop the vortex of madness that is so current.
It’s not as if the world hasn’t always had it’s mad men, it’s just that somehow it seemed more contained to a person and a time, but now, we have unleashed all crazy at the same time. It’s kind of like a hose that has so many holes in it, there is no way to plug them all up.
I use to fantasize about being that demi-god that had the ability to change the course of the human condition, or to be The Catcher in the Rye and save all the children that were falling off a cliff. But now, and maybe this is evolution from my narcissistic delusions, but I long for someone else. I fantasize about someone else doing that job. I mean, we have some extraordinary people who have amazing gifts, but they still lie in the boundaries of being human. We need a super hero that was bitten by a spider or someone from a distant planet that doesn’t want to annihilate earth, but wants to vanquish evil. With all the science fiction we have created, you would think we would have opened a portal for some otherworldly force.
A force for good.
Hey, if you’re out there, it’s time to come forward.
