Care Bears

I have a crazy friend who is crazy about the illuminati.

Actually, he's pretty smart.

So how can a smart person be so overwhelmingly consumed by this?

It's a conspiracy.

My theory:

Smart people are smart because they are curious. They have an insatiable intellectual hunger for answers and they are always seeking, asking, probing and irritating what were once their friends.

They have a brain full of intellectual energy that needs to be directed, distributed and drained off. (I feel like that sometimes but we're talking about the wrong organ.)

So smart people here in our land, in order to get rid of all these excess energy, either join the civil sector where they pour themselves into the abyss of bureaucractic meanderings or get rich and jump into the hee-haw bandwagon of consumer spending.

Of course, smart people all over God's green earth do that. But they do have a third option.

Politics.

They can demonstrate, remonstrate, protest, stand for presidency, criticise and make political films.

Of course, we can do all these here. (Even making political films which is really against the Films Act, but nobody in the world really knows the defintion of "political" since its so ambiguously stated in the LAW) . Then again, I'm sure people are looking for more encouraging examples other than those imprisoned, sued for libel, made bankrupt and the maligned.

So then, I don't blame my friend for using the illuminati as an outlet for his intellectual frustrations.

Incidentally, for security reasons, we call the illuminati "care bears" as a kind of code between us. Come to think of it, it's highly appropriate.

The care bears are a safer enemy.
