like marvin gaye said, what’s going on?

i don’t know what to make of the credit crunch, the recession, the collapse of the banks and our monetary system.

the system that was never real in the first place appears to be on the verge of collapse if it hasn’t already collapsed and we are just waiting for the aftershock.  at what point did the ordinary roman citizen realize the empire had collapsed?  what do you do, close your eyes, cover your ears, shut your mouth and pretend it’s not happening? do you panic, stockpile food, weapons, ammunition, and start preparing for the apocalypse?  do you trust that your government is full of people smarter than you and that they will know what to do to save us all?  or do we break out the r.e.m and prince and sing along to the words:

Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its
own needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and the
reverent in the right – right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright
light, feeling pretty psyched.

It’s the end of the world as we know it.
It’s the end of the world as we know it.
It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

or

When I woke up this mornin’
Coulda sworn it was judgment day
The sky was all purple,
there were people runnin’ everywhere
Tryin’ 2 run from the destruction,
U know I didn’t even care

‘Cuz they say two thousand zero zero party over,
oops out of time
So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s 1999
