There’s a man goin’ round, takin’ names

Armageddon is a big theme in the culture these past few years. It’s all about zombies, and asteroids, and plagues and vampires and natural disasters. Why is that? What are we all so afraid of, that we need to confront our fears through the medium of film, TV and print? Is it because of the GFC, or over-processed anxieties over our various first-world problems?  Is it is because we feel powerless to really control our fate, in the face of all the power of The Man?

I don’t know really what there is to be scared of. If you have any knowledge of fractals, and how they go on forever, in scale, you must know that we aren’t going anywhere. The past is the greatest predictor of the future.

Just Say Fuck It.
