about

The reality of oligarchical rule in the United States is both observable and measurable, and was evident long before the election of President Trump, see: "Testing Theories of American Politics" (2014) by Gilens, M. and and Page, B.I. To date, karmic reaction has not been demonstrated as a clearly observable scientific phenomenon. And, indeed, the opposite seems to be true with regard to the inflicting of pain and death upon, both humans and other forms of life, that comes directly and indirectly from amassing of obscene wealth, and/or the wielding of political power at a national level, which mostly insulates the powerful from any corollary consequences.

lyrics

TAKE A ROCK IN YOUR HAND
AND LET IT FALL WHEREVER YOU MAY BE
TESTABLE, REPEATABLE, DEMONSTRABLE EVIDENCE
OF OUR SITUATION AND ITS GRAVITY

BY APPLICATION OF THIS SCIENTIFIC METHOD
BY TAKING CAREFUL MEASURMENTS WE FIND
THAT THE ENDURING FALSE POSITIVE OF ENDLESS ECONOMIC GROWTH
IS A LUXURY OUR SPECIES CAN’T AFFORD

SO I’M SORRY BUT KARMA WON’T SAVE US
MEASURED BY EVERY SOUL THAT EVER DIED
SO THE RICH COULD GET AWAY WITH GETTING RICHER EVERY DAY
WITH NO PALPABLE COROLLARY CONSEQUENCE

THE C.E.O. OF EXXON MOBIL
MAKES IN EXCESS OF FORTY MILLION A YEAR
BEING GENEROUS LET’S SAY HE WORKS SIXTY HOURS A WEEK, HE MAKES MINIMUM WAGE,
IN THE TIME IT TAKES TO SAY “MINIMUM WAGE”

SO I’M SORRY BUT KARMA WON’T SAVE US
MEASURED BY EVERY SOUL THAT HAS TO DIE
SO THE RICH CAN GET AWAY WITH GETTING RICHER EVERY DAY
WITH NIL TANGIBLE COST TO THE RULING CLASS

KILLING US SOFTLY WITH ORTHODOXY
DOES IT MAKE ME ANGRY? IT MAKES ME APOPLECTIC
THAT WE’D ENABLE THE ONE PER CENT TO DRIVE THE WHOLE PICNIC OVER THE CLIFF
WITHOUT APPLYING THE SCIENCE OF BEING SCIENTIFIC

SO I’M SORRY BUT KARMA WON’T SAVE US
MEASURED BY EVERY LIVING THING THAT HAS TO DIE
SO THE RICH CAN KEEP ON, GETTING ON, GETTING RICHER EVERY DAY
TILL IT ALL FALLS APART AND WORMS INHERIT THE EARTH

AS THE PEER REVIEWED EVIDENCE CLEARLY SHOWS
PREDATOR CAPITAL IS A PSYCHOSIS BEYOND HOPE
AN ABERRATION, A ROGUE MEME, A FAILED EXPERIMENT
AND AN INSULT TO OUR MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD EVOLVED INTELLIGENCE
