Watching the tragicomedy of errors transpire leaves me with no words, so the words of others must suffice.
"In this land, right now, some are insane, but they're in charge"
The Gang of Four- "To Hell With Poverty"-1982
Al Pacino as the devil in â€œThe Devilsâ€™ Advocateâ€ starring Keanu Reeves-1997
â€œEddie Barzoon, Eddie Barzoon, I nursed him through 2 divorces, cocaine rehab, and a pregnant receptionist.
godâ€™s creature right? And I warned him Kevin, I warned him every step of the way watching him bounce around like a game, like a windup toy, like 250 lbs. of self serving greed on wheels.
The next 1000 years is right around the corner and Eddie Barzoon is the poster child for the next millennium.
Itâ€™s no mystery where they come from, you sharpen the human appetite to the point where it can split atoms with itsâ€™ desire, you build egos the size of cathedrals, fiber optically connect the world to every eager impulse, grease even the dullest dreams with dollar green gold plated fantasies â€˜til every human becomes an aspiring emperor, becomes his own god and where can you go from there?
And as weâ€™re scrambling from one deal to the next whoâ€™s got his eyes on the planet?
As the air thickens, the water sours, even the bees honey takes on the metallic taste of radioactivity and it just keeps coming-faster and faster, thereâ€™s no chance to prepare, itâ€™s buy futures, sell futures, when there is no future!
We got a billion Eddie Barzoons jogging into the future, every one of â€˜em gettinâ€™ ready to fistf*** godâ€™s ex-planet, lick their fingers clean as they reach out with their pristine cybernetic keyboards to total up their f***inâ€™ billable hours and then it hits home;
You gotta pay your own way Eddie, itâ€™s a little late in the game to buy out now;
Your bellyâ€™s too full, your **** is soft, and youâ€™re screaming for someone to help,
But guess what , thereâ€™s no one there,
Youâ€™re all alone.
Youâ€™re godâ€™s special little creatureâ€¦"
