HOME (The Movie)


Word arrived this morning from the oracle in Berkeley, Peter Z; along with a link (shown above) to 90 minutes of truth. Contemplating his message I wondered; will our story be that we arrived by chance through a miracle of evolution made possible by the extraordinary magical gift of regeneration and like a gluttonous species of self-serving greed on wheels harvested everything until it was finished or fouled, and then, residing over our own demise, ignominiously vanished into extinction?

Have we, with egos the size of cathedrals, sharpened our greed to the point we can split atoms with our desire? Will we fiber-optically connect the world to our every eager impulse, grease every dollar-green dream and gold-plated fantasy until every privileged human being becomes an aspiring emperor? 

As we scramble from one deal to the next, who’s got his eye on the planet? As the air thickens, the water sours, and even the bees honey takes on the metallic taste of radioactivity; are we are on that runaway Amtrak train, crashing  headlong into a slow down curve at 110 MPH, ready to fist-fuck our ex-planet and lick our fingers clean as we reach out toward our pristine, cybernetic keyboards for more billable hours with our belly’s too full, our dick’s too limp and our hearts too empty. If so, where can you go from there?

    Yes the world is running on a road of greed straight into an ecological disaster. We are probably past the point of no return.

    India and China’s populations want what we have. China is building coal power plants and consuming the worlds resources at a tremendous pace.

    While we churn out new millionaires and billionaires, the middle class in the US disappears. One billion people in the world don’t have access to clean water and electricity.

    The disparity between the top ten percent and the rest of us is unprecedented.

    There have been over 160 murders on Chicago so far this year and murders in Baltimore than in 42 years. Something is seriously wrong.

  3. The root of evil, end o’ times, truth-say on the edge of oblivion. Masesso delivers from the pulpit of Armageddon. Blown away.
