McKenna on Society

September 8, 2012

Excerpted from Spiritual Warfare, by Jed McKenna:

“I started seeing this whole human transport system; me and the same few hundred people I saw every day but never spoke to, just shuttling back and forth like mindless sheep, all with our newspapers, laptops, headsets.  I’d think about it, of the whole world stuck in this same huge machine, getting endlessly, pointlessly processed.  Old ones falling out and new ones replacing them.  Every morning these steel tubes all around the world, carrying millions of people, pumping them like fresh blood into graveyard cities and pumping them back out at night, dirty and tired.  Like a brotherhood of sheep, of captivity, of mindlessness, of lives unlived, of empty activity.  Everyone, though; not just commuters.  Clerks in stores, cops, bus drivers, everyone you see.  You get inserted into this machine when you’re four or five and you don’t come out the other end until your sixties.  Once you start seeing this place for the madhouse it is, you can’t stop seeing it that way.  It’s everywhere, everyone.  It doesn’t make any sense.  That’s not life.  It can’t be.  I don’t know what it is, but it’s not life.”
