  • Technological Superstitions | John Michael Greer

    Sept. 10, 2014 (Archdruid Report) -- I'd meant to go straight on from last week’s post about völkerwanderung and the dissolution and birth of ethnic identities in dark age societies, and start talking about the mechanisms by which societies destroy themselves -- with an eye, of course, to the present example. Still, as I’ve noted here more than once, there are certain complexities involved in the...

    Emanuele Corso -- World News Trust Sept. 14, 2014 What was once American democracy is disappearing. It is being replaced by Authoritarian-Capitalism, a cross between an economic belief system and a trope version of Christianity that is hatching like those creatures emerging out of an astronaut’s body in the film Alien.
