The Ills of Civilized Decadence


Omar Alansari-Kreger

It is commonly believed that when history repeats itself there is a marshaled
force of human endeavor behind it. From the standpoint of human history that may
seem to be irrefutably true, but often times we are the literal accessories that lead to our
own demise. Our technologies have built these complexes of indestructibility and with
that personified complex certain arrogance arises as a direct byproduct. Despite the
advancing strides that have been made toward conquering and curbing various
diseases weve collectively failed as a species toward effectuating either. Why? Most of
our efforts have been posited toward treatments as opposed to cures; nonetheless, the
former does eventually give way to the latter.
The means and methods which reintroduce a deadly plague back into our midst
are pathologically unique from the actual sourced origin. The disease is
characteristically the same, but when the earliest onset of a disease arrives we are
usually unprepared to address its grave implications once theyve returned in our own
backyards. How is it possible to salvage methodical knowledge when it is culturally
forgotten and ordained into esoteric and fringe circles? From the standpoint of the
resolute, an inquiry of the times emerges which simply states the following: how do we
deliver an effectuating change that is able to eternally preserve itself throughout time?
That refers to an abstract paradigm that prepares a mindset, but doesnt create
the actual methodological remedy; in the ancient Hellenistic world synthetically infused
vaccinations simply didnt exist. Perhaps that is a little too much to hope for in a world
where information is lost because it is tossed out for pragmatic convenience. The arrival
of a deadly plague has an uncanny ability in reiterating a highly neglected fact that
seemingly hides beneath the deepest depths of history. It is for that specific reason why
we must realize that diseases flourish because we dont immediately realize that they
are put on ice as opposed to dying out completely.

It may take thousands of years for the same deadly plague to strike again, but
once it resurfaces we are always swindled by our licentious belief in the superiority of
our contemporary civilizations. When asking the impossible it is always in our best
interest to entertain an endemic alternative to the greatest capacity possible. Strides
that relentlessly advance toward the pursuit of esoteric knowledge are institutionally
guarded and regarded as state secrets kept from the domain of the common good.
What can introduce so much salvation becomes a weapon of mass destruction in its
own diabolical right.
An epithet for population control may seem as a deplorable evil when used as
justification for unleashing deadly agents on highly saturated population centers, but an
artificially manufactured morality has the tendency of emerging in a future that
exonerates tactics of genocide as necessary evils that secured that big picture prize.
The most frightening aspect of that reality is that it doesnt tacitly imply anything specific
that defines the specifics of that prize, but there is an implied implication that surfaces
which reminds us of what can happen when an elite few become over indulged with
their sardonic view of the world.
