It's Kali Yuga Day! Hail Eris!
'Tis Kali Yuga Day
It will be every day
Til this shit goes away
My first column on this subject was on 02-17-2019, here: https://caucus99percent.com/content/congratulations-it-kali-yuga-day
I said but little:
This is the anniversary of the start of the Kali Yuga -- the age of quarrel and strife. According to one computation, we have but 427,000 more years of this shit. The good part of that is that Kali is in charge, though, frankly, she doesn't seem to be kicking ass on evildoers the way that one would hope she would. Ah well.
Centurea expanded on the topic in the comments thusly:
In the three-part creative cycle -- (1) birth/ creation/ growth of new systems and structures, (2) maintenance of the status quo, and (3) the breaking down of old systems and structures -- Shiva and Kali rule the third stage: Destruction, Death, Doom, Transformation.
The three-stage cycle applies to everything that has ever existed. Every entity, system, country, regime, person, structure, and ultimately even the planet itself. No exceptions. Anyone with any sensory perception and an IQ over the freezing point knows that instinctively. Nothing lasts forever. What goes up must come down.
Everyone understands this, that is, except 21st century capitalists and imperialists, who in their madness believe in unlimited and infinite growth, world without end, amen. Gimme, gimme, gimme, hoard, hoard, hoard, more, more, more.
Shiva and Kali are on their way.
It is profoundly comforting to believe that someday all the rat-bastards, monsters, evildoers and perhaps also the myriads of annoying little shitheads will get their comeuppance. This has, in fact, been a major driver behind many religions, sects, cults and the like, especially when coupled with the belief that the goodly, righteous and/or true believers would sit on high basking in the radiated bliss of some chosen or anointed one, smugly watching said comeupping being delivered whilst personally overdosing on schadenfreude. Sadly, the day of reckoning seems always to slip just over the horizon and those who should be cast down continue to run the show, controlling and ruing everything and the lives and destinies of all except their brother and sister sociopaths and psychopaths. Ah well ...
