Has Anyone Else Noticed That The Culture, Technology, Politics And Optimism Of The 1990s Were BRUTALLY ERASED Starting In 2001?


Recommended Posts

Going into the 21st Century (= Century 7 + 7 + 7 or 777) the following happened:

 

- The Music culture of the 1990s has been destroyed, leaving many people to wonder "where did all the good music go?"

- The Cinema culture of the 1990s has been destroyed, leaving many people to wonder "WTF happened to Cinema?"

- The Computing culture of the 1990s has been destroyed, leaving many people to wonder "WTF is happening to Computing?"

- The Privacy and Other Freedoms of the 1990s has been destroyed, leading to an Internet-Of-Things, where HUMANS are the "Things"

- The Political Optimism of the 1990s has been destroyed - the Cold War had ended - leading into an era of "The Muuuslims are going to kill us all" Paranoia

- The Environmental Optimism of the 1990s has been destroyed - we are being told that Climate Change will completely ruin human civilization

- The "Soft Capitalism" of the 1990s has been destroyed, giving way to "Take-No-Prisoners Hard Capitalism" or "Robber Baron Capitalism" led by giant Corporations

- The Critical Thinking and Journalism of the 1990s has been destroyed, making way for a "Mainstream Media Tells Us What To Think Now" era

- Television has been destroyed since the 1990s - everything being made for TV now is dumbed down to a T

- Internation Relations has degenerated into an Everybody vs Everybody mess, where a bloody Conflict can break out with a moment's notice

It's a rule that any evil cult needs an invisible threat from the 'outside' to keep functionning, some unfathomable fear to keep the community together and create a fake 'solidarity' between followers, and the more fears the better so that everyone may pick one's own and nobody escapes or is 'left alone'...

 

9/11 has been the strarting trauma that definitely tipped the real world into media fantasy and settled that climate of fear then fueled and sustained by further 'terrorist attacks' until the propaganda switched to the 'virus threat' under which we're living these days... an evil cult lives on fear...

Were you to throw a theme party, and the theme was the 1950's. Everyone would know how to come dressed in their 50's costumes. The same can be said for a 60's, 70's and 80's themed party. That's where it stops.

 

Were you on a city bus, dressed up in a 1990's costume, no one would take notice.

 

For over thirty years there has been no major changes in Western culture/pop culture. From music to fashion, televison and movies, nothing new. Just reusing, rearranging and renaming of everything that has come before.

 

Just stream a few seasons from some old television show from the mid-sixties that ran into the seventies. In a few short years you'll see the dramatic change in hair styles, clothes, slang, activities.

 

Now, by comparison, look at the series Friends. The characters got older, got nicer hairstyles, nicer clothes over the run of the series, but they could wear outfits from season one during their final season and not look out of place.

 

I realize pop culture changes may seem insignificant to most, but I see it as a way of gauging who we are, to a certain extent.

 

That all said, I've been wondering if this "Reset" will create such changes, or is it going to be another "repackaging" of...?

Keep bangin' on the wall Of Fortress Europe Keep banging Keep banging on the wall Of Fortress Europe Of Fortress Europe Keep banging Keep banging on the wall Of Fortress Europe 2022, a new European order Robot guards patrolling the border Cybernetic dogs are getting closer and closer Armored cars and immigration officers A burning village in Kosovo You bombed it out, now you're telling us go home Machine guns strut on the cliffs of Dover Heads down, people look out, we're going over Burnin' up, can we survive re-entry Past the mines and the cybernetic sentries Safe European homes built on wars You don't like the effect, don't produce the cause The chip is in your head, not on my shoulder Total control just around the corner Open up the floodgates, time's nearly up Keep banging on the wall of Fortress Europe Keep banging Keep banging on the wall Of Fortress Europe Keep banging Keep banging on the wall Of Fortress Europe We got a right, know the situation We're the children of globalization No borders, only true connection Light the fuse of the insurrection This generation has no nation Grass roots pressure the only solution We're sitting tight 'Cause asylum is a right Put an end to this confusion Dis is a 21st century Exodus Dis is a 21st century Exodus Burnin' up can we survive re-entry Past the land mines and cybernetic sentries Plane, train, car, ferry boat or bus The future is bleeding coming back at us The chip is in your head not on my shoulder Total control around the corner Open up the floodgates, time's nearly up Keep banging on the wall of Fortress Europe Keep banging Keep banging on the wall Of Fortress Europe Keep banging Keep banging on the wall Of Fortress Europe Dis is a 21st century Exodus Dis is a 21st century Exodus They got a right, listen not to de scaremonger Who doesn't run when they're feel the hunger From where to what to when to here to there People caught up in red tape nightmare Break out of the detention centers Cut the wires and tear up the vouchers People get ready it's time to wake up Tear down the walls of Fortress Europe Dis is a 21st century Exodus Tear down the walls of Fortress Europe Dis is a 21st century Exodus We got the right! Keep banging Keep banging on the wall Of Fortress Europe Let's say it again! Keep banging Keep banging on the wall Of Fortress Europe Of Fortress Europe Keep banging Keep banging on the wall Of Fortress Europe Of Fortress Europe Keep banging Keep banging on the wall Of Fortress Europe

World War I

I was thinking the other day that after WW1/WW2 .. people felt huge relief.  Because space opened up in their society.  So many people died that there was space, and plenty of work.

So people were very happy about that, they knew what to do with their lives and didn't have competition or claustrophobia.

Before WW1 industrialisation had damaged ordinary human life turning many into robots in a factory ... sometimes called the "satanic mills".  Human destroying mills.

Although some people were making a mint and full of swagger ... others were having their natural lives destroyed.

Human beings deal with this kind of situation through mass ritualistic murder, after which they sober up and claim everything is fixed and they "defeated evil".

That is the level of intelligence and consciousness of human beings.

 

The 80s and Cancer

Bright lights Big city ?

Society is like an engine, it goes around season after season.

If it's not well managed some of the energy of society starts leaking out ... creating bright lights ... noise partying burning money ... indulgence and debauchery.

You a good society is a quietly industrious society - it means the energy of society is sheathed, like the penis sheathed in the vagina.  The energy is used constructively and not pissed away.  Not burnt up.

When you see bright lights and noise and debauchery in a society ... it means the energy of society is being burnt up and pissed away.  It is no longer sheathed into constructive activities.

That btw is the meaning of the rainbow, it means the energy of society is bleeding out into the atmosphere and as it bleeds out it dis-unified so instead of one white beam it is fragmenting and degenerating so you can see the colours inside it.

 

The 80s burnt too bright ... that is another way humans fuck themselves up ... I am not sure what it is, but they can't hold things together.   They start to print money.  They start to drink heavily.  The start killing each other.

They just can't keep it together.

 

80s was an overgrowth ... it is exactly like when you farm cattle and instead of the cows giving you 60 litres of milk, you demand they give you 100 litres and inject them with pills and steroids and whatever and suck out their milk with machines.  Until they are so goddam ill that the milk is full of puss.

Same thing with farming wheat ... these days farmers try to get two seasons of wheat in a year ... the result is the death of the soil, all the nutritients vanish ... calcium phosophorous it all vanishes so you have wheat that you make grow especially if you spray with poisons ... then it grows but it's empty of nutrients.

Then the wheat makes everyone sick.

And then you get cancer and the whole society gets cancer.

 

Humans are a disaster.

One rule is ... don't cheat.

But on this planet with so many liars and the insane running things, even when you want to be honest .. the road doesn't seem so clear.

 

So, what can we conclude in the final analysis.

Buddha and Jesus were right ... there is only a small amount of good stuff you can do with the insane, and so a kind of breakthrough of consciousness is the only solution and dedicated work towards that is required.  Then at least there will be one sane person on Planet Chaos.

Yeah, I noticed that too and it's weird. Since about 1997 until today there has been very little change in clothes or hair styles, music and films haven't changed a great deal either. While if you watch a music video or TV show from the 80's or early 90's you can tell almost straight away what year it's from, things seemed to noticeably change every couple of years back then but since the late 90's we've been seemingly stuck in a corporate, dumbed down, amoral time warp.

The World's etheric energy field was tampered with probably through black magic ritual and changed dramatically round about 1995 or slightly before and has been like that ever since. That's why there has been a steady decline in every aspect of human life since then, all our thoughts, feelings and emotional states are massively influenced by the energy field around us. 

Yes, there's obviously propaganda through the media, politicians, world events etc. etc. but it's overlooked how affected we all are by the energy field around us.

I'm not really sure about any of this stuff. The history of the West in the past hundred years or so seems to be patterns of oppression, war, depression, with growth, positivity and prosperity.

 

The only thing is that the 80's and 90's were a cycle of prosperity and positivity, before which was a period of depression and decline with the 70's, prior to this the 50's and 60's were periods of growth and prosperity and of course before this was the 1930's and then world war 2.

 

It's just part of the slight of hand of the rulers. They give us periodic times of perceived happiness of freedom and prosperity, only to take it all away again with war and depression.....

 

Just seems that the end of the 90's the period of prosperity and optimism was coming to an end to prepare for the next phase of war and depression.......

 

We'll just have to see how it all ends.

 

Maybe the 2030's will be awesome...... 

 

Who knows......... but yeah, we're really in the shitter now.

Lots of people I know keep saying "Man, the 1990s were so awesome".

 

Good - innovative/electronic - music. Carefully crafted cinematic works by film directors at the top of their game. Computers/software where YOU were in control.

 

Lots of visual technology innovation - eye-popping 3D/CG VFX in movies. Used sparingly and expertly too...

 

No software tied to SHITTY CLOUD SERVERS half a world away.

 

Privacy was there. Mobile phones/cellphones didn't crap on your life.

 

Intellectually, there was quite a bit of freedom - without "cancel culture" maniacs screaming at you on social media.

 

LGBTQ wasn't SHOVED DOWN YOUR THROAT. Yeah, George Michael and Freddie Mercury weren't straight. But they didn't try to make YOU gay as well.

 

Literature was still going strong - and the tone of books was very different from today's teeny bopper faire.

 

The West was in NO way "afraid of the Specter of Isamic Terrorism" or whatever. It was in CONTROL of the world.

 

Then came... drumroll... 9/11.
