The Unsacred Clown and The Death of the Sacred

“Man is a polluted river. One must be a sea to receive a polluted river without becoming defiled.” ~ Nietzsche

We are living in the age of the imbecile. It’s a time of catastrophic stupidity. A heightened state of human folly outflanks us. Willful ignorance has created a tsunami of stupid that’s tidal waving across the world in nauseating surges of dimwitted cruelty and gleeful shortsightedness.

Fault lines of idiocy ripple from it. Smoke and mirrors billow from it in brainless puffs of myopia and ill-reason. Alas, the twilight of the idols has given rise to the dawn of the dumb.

The worst part is that this particular flavor of dumb is also cowardly and spineless. The only thing worse than being surrounded by idiots is being surrounded by cowards. And when the positions of our (so-called) leadership and (so-called) elite are filled with both, then you know that you are in the midst of the age of imbecility.

It is then that you know the shadow of the Unsacred Clown has fallen upon the world and the end of the sacred is nigh.

The unsacred clown is the polar-opposite of the sacred clown, a clown-clown minus the sacred. A harbinger of self-destructive greed and meaninglessness. A force of imbecility so powerful that it corrupts absolutely.
