I’ve spent my life aspiring to be one of the “smart people”. I went to school to apply whatever intelligence I had into an income-producing asset.
Then Jeffrey Epstein came along. He was a really smart guy. And used his smarts to get rich, gain influence, make powerful friends and rape as many postpubescent teenage girls as he possibly could.
And the entire world of the New York and Hollywood cultural, political and financial elites has been put under scrutiny. This coincides with the examination and reassessment of the goals of globalism. Suddenly more and more people are seeing their political and personal autonomy eroded by institutions like the European Union, by free trade agreements that destroy their livelihood and their dignity.
And the elitist talking heads are finally being challenged. Brexit. The Trump Election, the Yellow Vests, the collapse of Angela Merkel. I could go on.
Culture, finance, politics are all providentially, I would argue, being challenged. Great time to be alive. Glad I made it this far.
Lol. I was thinking something along the same lines today.
I was talking to a client that is a road worker. I remember I went to the offices to apply for an apprenticeship almost 30 years ago and they wouldnt even give me an application. Woman said “honey, those jobs are only for men” and sent me away. And now you see women doing them often. They are good jobs. Good pay, stable, good benefits. The world is changing. Bad shit still happens. But it’s being challenged. Only like in Hong Kong with China right now. The people are protesting and the government is coming down hard to try to squelch it instead of listen to them and let them have a say. When the government militarizes against it’s own citizens….still…to this day.
Well. There is definitely a lot of room for improvement in the world. That’s for sure. But yea. It’s an interesting time to be alive. For sure.
