Enjoying the Decline By Uncle Len, in Permanent Decline
My title is from a book which I have not read, but I saw somewhere, but I forgot where, by some author, whose name I can’t remember. Brain fogs seem to be my lot for much of my waking hours. Anyway, I digress from what I was writing about. What was that? I can’t remember. Well not exactly can’t remember, more like, I never said what it was that I was going to say in the first place. Hell, Greenacres made a comedy series about this kind of brain flatulence, with its delightful character Hank Kimball (played by Alvy Moore, 1921-1997) where the Encyclopedia of Television states that Kimball “personifies a kind of infinite regress, where every empirical statement branches into multiple statements that in turn preclude it, spiraling each new observation back and away from itself like an inductive Ecsherism.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hank_Kimball. He qualified himself to death, the ultimate fate of government agencies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVcXhaGOZyg.
That brings me to dropping out, something I would have done if I had gone to university in the 1960s, dropped out and never returned. In fact, it is a mighty good thing to do today, saving oneself great debt while being unemployed. But many folk are now downscaling selling their homes and hitting the road in mobile homes: http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-05-04-husband-and-wife-ditch-fancy-house-and-cars-to-happily-live-in-a-van.html; https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-29856/i-live-in-a-van-heres-why-i-think-its-the-ultimate-life-hack.html; http://livingfree.news/.
I definitely welcome the movement to downscaling. With jobs set to disappear, and the evil financial system in place still, people will need to adopt these alternative life styles. I hope someday to put together a book about this, Uncle Len’s Tips for the Simple Life, if my busy schedule permits, and I remember.
