This Land Is Their Land
Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," hoping the deities of yesteryear will be able to find work in this dismal economic climate.
I doubt that They will. Even though They are gods who can work miracles, heal the sick, send lightning bolts and good/bad weather, soothe the grieving, and protect the populace. Sadly, all of these positions are currently filled by a single deity, which makes Him the one percent.
Good luck saving those mountain gorillas, Chonganda. Maybe you can get an unpaid internship.
This billboard shocked commuters in the Las Vegas area today. Apparently it was a totally rogue action, done overnight by some
(Don't be alarmed. That's a mannequin. I would not call it a dummy.)
We are living in a nation where many people can't find work, but they can buy guns. Some of these people are deeply concerned with totally meaningless issues like gay marriage and abortion, while their usefulness as "units" disappears.
Others may be starting to re-think who the real villains are. The fact that these villains are not as clueless as Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette will protect them for awhile. But as more and more people find themselves unable to feed their children (lower rungs), pay for their homes (my rung), or advance thanks to extra education and hard work (higher rung), the villains will no longer be safe.
If you add climate change to this mix, oh golly.
