The Crescendo of Crisis has been building all week. Like the Mickey Mouse club which keenly assigned compartmented identities to the various days (e.g., Tuesday is “Anything Can Happen” day ), and the Romans who assigned separate gods to the various days, we now have begun to realize the 21st Century Schizoid Man (King Crimson) scheme of things.
The keenly aware powers behind the Mickey Mouse Club had it all mapped out. In a dark, smoke-filled room they decided: (Monday) Who, What, Why, Where, When and How; (Tuesday) Let’s Go; (Wednesday) Surprise; (Thursday) Discovery; (Friday) Showtime.
I and others have discerned the updated Mickey Mouse arrangement now extant regarding the various days. Today, Friday, is “Startling News issued late in the day.” On Saturdays there is never a crisis: “Crisis? There is no crisis. Why sir, you must be crazy.” In the Sunday compartment it is admitted that, “Yes, there is a crisis. (But let us be intellectual about it.)” Monday is the new, updated, “Anything Can Happen” day.
So the evil mouse is controlling us all. (“Everything Is Under Control,” as Robert Anton Wilson liked to say.) The Crescendo of Crisis builds all week, culminating on Friday. At this point we are all highly overstimulated (by design). Then, on Saturday, comes a drastic stimulus withdrawal. Suddenly there is no crisis anywhere to be found. This too is by design, to force you to overcompensate via massive shopping binges. They even boldly go so far as to admit it as “retail therapy,” thereby giving a huge clue to the grand scheme of the compartmented days.
To prevent the average person from seeing through their little plan of the compartmented days and the crescendo of crisis, abrupt “holidays” get thrown in from time to time which serve to disrupt potential pattern analysis. For example, next week we have the Thursday Thanksgiving Trip-You-Up.
Next week’s Thanksgiving Trip-You-Up means an increased intensity of the crisis crescendo this week. “The books must be balanced” is the rule of thumb. Since next week’s Trip-You-Up lessens somewhat the “crisis” volume, the books are balanced somewhat by intensifying this week’s “crisis” volume.
Thanks to John McCain for providing some comic relief in the midst of all this. On Wednesday, “Erupting John” was at a press conference, demanding more information about the September Benghazi consulate incident. But he forgot that at that very time an important closed-door briefing on the subject was underway. Thanks for the good laugh, John!
He is called “Erupting John” because, like the “Old Faithful” geyser he can be counted on to periodically erupt and exclaim, “Bomb them! Bomb them to smithereens!” After McCain erupts, then the “news” fakers have to look on the map and assign some random cause. The “news” fakers do something like this also with the day’s stock market numbers: they see the numbers are either up or down, then they look on the map and assign some random cause. For example, stocks are down one day; “news” fakers look on the map; there is a dwindling population of Tasmanian Devils, they notice – Voila! “Stocks Down. Investors Worried About Tasmanian Devil Population.”
