Episode 233: A Sluggish Apocalypse

We return to the original theme of Transmission: apocalypse. An "apocalypse" is an unveiling...a revelation. For those able to perceive the nature of things, the struggles of our world are laid bare. However, many live in a seemingly willful foolishness, failing to see that we live in a time of slow-moving collapse.

Ours is already a post-apocalyptic reality, as millions are already devastated by climate change. With a healthcare system crushed by pandemic. And with an acceleration of economic and environmental exploitation.

Meanwhile, Met galas and European vacations continue as though everything were right as rain.
