Guess we have come a full circle bypassing the end of the world

History in Grade 3 was about the medieval era. The world had emerged from the dark ages and were just stabilizing as a civilization. This was the early middle ages that gave us the societal pyramidal structure where the priests occupied the apex. The public, who were essentially an illiterate mass were controlled by the religious bodies. Any natural calamity (from floods, to famine) on which the humans had no control were stamped as God‘s wrath and sacrifices were demanded to appease HIM. Ofcourse in that era, sacrifices were in kind.

All these ‘sacrifices’ ensured a constant flow of daily needs into the temples and these messengers of God lived a comfortable life without really working for it and enjoyed the power over the mass.

Over the centuries, people became smarter, realized their folly in putting their faith and trust on these opportunists and there was a drastic shift in the structure of the society. The top position which was for all these years was occupied by the messengers of God were taken over by kings and the power changed hands. This was the foundation of the modern world as we know today.

In the modern world, for the longest time, America was hailed as THE country. The rest of the world looked up to it, partly in fear and party in awe. And today, in that same America, which is now just a shimmering shadow of its once glorious past, I hear/read of messengers of God talking about His wrath and how we need to appease Him ( Westboro Baptist Church ), Michele Bachmann ( who said God wanted her to run for presidency ); a quote now taken by Rick Santorum ( either they misinterpreted His orders or God is really getting old and has amnesia, so forgot He had already asked Bachmann to run for president and now asking Santorum ). National Organization for Marriage ( NOM ) asking for donations..( read as sacrifices ) to restore marriage as GOD wanted it to be. The latest being Pat Robertson who claimed the tornadoes to hit Indiana could have been avoided with prayers.

So it looks like we have (or atleast America has ) gone back to the middle ages and the pyramidal structure is once again changing where the apex is in the verge of getting reclaimed by the men of God. I always thought this was bound to happen once this world is destroyed at the end of this year and we start all over again with the dawn of civilization.

But by the looks of it, America has bypassed the destruction of the world bit and the stone age and directly jumped to the medieval era. And that makes me think, maybe that’s what Mayan calendar meant when it predicted that 2012 is going to be the end of the world ( or the world as we know it now). It has all of a sudden started to make sense.

Advocate’s candid interview with Dan Savage

Instead of rewriting the whole interview, I will just put the link here.

Savage talks about a lot of things from his new show on MTV called Savage U, Rick Santorum, to being glitter bombed by trans group.

If I wasn’t clear enough why I adore Dan Savage… here is why

Can’t adore/love this man enough. Dan Savage has this obsession with Rick Santorum the same way I had mine with Michele Bachmann. Now she is no more. I need a new hobby.

Dan is so funny but smart at the same time.

Listen to his interview with Kieth Olbermann and have a good chuckle.

NOM’s “successful” Valuebus tour in IOWA

National Organization for Marriage (NOM) like last year, did their Values Voter Bus tour through the state of IOWA. They proudly announced that they covered 22 cities and more than 1300 miles in 5 days.

Brian Brown had been tweeting for sometime, congratulating everybody who made this event a “success’. And by doing that he redefined “success.” He was not satisfied by just congratulating the 20 people who made it a “success” but went to to release this video. Whatever was left to imagination, before, is not for everyone to see.

There are few shots of 10 to 15 people spread out in front of the bus to make it look like there were tons of people attending the events. You can see kids between the age of 5 and 10 holding up banners. What do they know of marriage and NOM?

Most of the video is focused on the the speakers like Rick Santorum but the camera doesn’t move from their face to the audience so that we can get a clear view of how many were in actual attendance. They could be speaking to an empty venue/lawn for all we know.
