We are going to war.
I find that thought to be shocking and am dismayed to find that few see it – or don’t care.
Have we lost our minds?
In a word… yes.
Part of the problem rests at the feet of something that I wrote about this week – The Fourth Turning. Our great-grandfathers died before we were born, and we didn’t listen much to our grandfathers. All of which means that we get to repeat the mistakes of our great-grandfathers, and start the process all over again.
Unfortunately, this Fourth Turning includes nuclear and biological weapons. And, THAT spells doom for America.
Why does this mean doom?

Because America has backed Russia into a corner and hasn’t given her an acceptable escape route. Such a cornered opponent will go for the only option that leaves them with any chance of survival:
If you think that I’m engaging in hyperbole, you have not been paying attention to events in Ukraine, Syria or the ex-Soviet Republic of Georgia. To quote Jim Quinn of theburningplatform.com, our situation is a…
…powder-keg and the politicians are acting like slow witted monkeys lighting matches.
– Jim Quinn, The Fourth Turning Accelerating
It’s The Fourth Turning
Of course, Jim was referring to the 102 million unemployed workers in the US. But, we’re actually talking about the same thing.
Our difficult economic circumstances, coupled with our penchant for repeating the mistakes of the past… well, they are driving us hell-bent for war.
What was it that helped drive Rome to her knees?
A Roman Ending
That great mass of unemployed Romans that we call, the Roman Mob, that demanded bread and circuses.
How did Rome deal with this problem?
They went to war to plunder everyone else to pay for the ‘bread and circuses’.
Welcome to the end of the world as we know it.
Enjoy your stay.

WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: Another Week Closer to the End
So, what did we talk about this week?
This week we talked about ISIS hysteria and how it impacts the prophecy in Isaiah 17. We discussed Strauss and Howe’s implications of our place in the Fourth Turning – and how we are rushing towards a horrifying rendezvous with destiny. And, when we reach that predestined point in time, most of the cycles that I have been talking about collapse, and we enter an age of apocalyptic war.
So, let’s talk about that.

The Articles That You Will Find in This WEEKEND SHOCKCAST
MONDAY – (another research day, so no article)
TUESDAY – ISIS Hysteria and Isaiah 17
When I first heard about ISIS, they seemed like the kind of Muslim extremist group that we’ve seen before. As they cut their way into Iraq, that view hasn’t changed.
This is an irregular militia of light infantry without air support. And, they are fighting poorly trained and poorly organized military forces that were not defending what they considered to be their own territory.
Furthermore, there is a limit to how much area that ten thousand men can control – as the Kurds so amply demonstrated when they recently captured Kirkuk. This means that ISIS isn’t the threat that the mainstream media would like you to believe – at least, not yet.
WEDNESDAY – Eventually, People Wake Up – The Fourth Turning
We all love a good story – the bigger, the better. We talk about how good we are – how great our society is. And, we hire story tellers to give us those stories.
Our story tellers talk to us from the television and radio. They write the stories in our newspapers, magazines and books. We send our children to school to learn the stories. We go to churches that tell us the stories we want to hear. And, we put our best story tellers in government.
But, there comes a moment in time, as people start to wake up, that the story tellers send us to war.
THURSDAY – This Horrifying Rendezvous with Destiny
Yesterday, I wrote about Strauss and Howe’s book, The Fourth Turning: An American Prophecy. It’s subtitle is:
I don’t think that William Strauss or Neil Howe really understood what that ‘Rendezvous with Destiny’ is. In fact, I’m not completely sure that even I do. This Rendezvous is shaping up to be the most horrifying moment in human history, since the Great Flood, and few of us really see it.
The fact that it didn’t have to happen this way adds frustration to this feeling of alarm. We didn’t need to choose this path, but we chose it, anyway. And, our children pay the highest price.
FRIDAY – When Cycles Die
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been talking a lot about cycles that seem to chart the course of human life. It’s a pretty counterintuitive idea until you realize that EVERYTHING in the Universe lives according to a certain rhythm.
But, what happens when the inputs that fuel the rhythm fail?
Well, the rhythm – or cycle – dies. And, it’s replaced by a new one.
But, what if the owners of the old cycle go to war against the new cycle?
Lots and lots of people die. In fact, whole civilizations have died because the old cycle was too successful, which meant that they killed off the new one.
