I think I started this blog in 2005. I know it’s been through a couple incarnations. Now and then (actually quite often) I like to peruse random posts here. It’s interesting that many of my views on politics, religion, and the general state of the world haven’t changed much. Well, the rants are pretty much unchanged. Sometimes I get the feeling that no one is listening to me.
In the same time period I have gone through a lot of crap (much of it of my own creation) and been through a lot of changes (hopefully for the better). I know that nothing is permanent and that change is inevitable but it seems that a lot of things in the world have not really changed all that much. I see the same sort of shit going on now that I saw in the sixties. The technology has changed but all we’ve done about the other shit is change the names, places, and labels.
Listen to some protest songs from the sixties. Fifty some years later these songs have lost none of their relevance. They may actually be more relevant. Just change a few names and locations. It’s the same shit, just with different spellings.
