The Feast

Ed flexed his powers of prognostication with this November 10, 2008 essay. This was an “alternate” radio commentary which was never aired and is published here for the first time.

The mules are dying.

The day of the vulture and the blowfly is here.

The mule, a product of misogyny, has no pride of ancestry nor hope of progeny. It has from 20 to 30 years of life, as does any economy that is part free-enterprise and part government.

“There is a way that seems right unto a man, but the end thereof is death.” In today’s vernacular, this means that if it is in violation of the laws of nature, it has no integrity, no stability and no beauty. This holds true for all violations of nature’s laws.

History is replete with the hubris of mankind, and it is stark testimony to human stupidity, a condition that is expanding with increased public education. As of now, stupidity is a global contest where all nations seem to vie for the world championship. It only proves that even if the entire world believes the lie, it still will not become the Truth.

Just weeks ago, the vultures and the blowfly were feasting… feasting on the carcasses on Wall Street. However, that was just an appetizer. Washington and Wall Street are planning for the main course, and it will be at least a seven-course dinner for the vultures and the blowfly. After that, they will sit down for dessert. I don’t think there will be enough there for an after-dinner drink and a cigar. Meanwhile, we all still have to eat, and for those of us who have a farm or garden, there will be food. So don’t panic, start a garden and go organic.
