California Dreamin’ or Oblivious & Delusional

I’m on my way to Cali Dec. 14th to Jan 5th to finish recording and producing my next and final four songs for my EP 2020 (out hmm around March, 2020, duh). I realized something odd, all the people I communicate with in LA – without exception, do not mention, not even in passing, the fires that are ravaging California!

So, I have a broader comment on human beings: we are both delusional (which I knew) and oblivious. OK, let me bring this down to Earth here. We humans are built to react, and quickly too, to immediate threats (the lion attacking, etc.); we are built to think about this crop this season, this year, maybe; and at least 50% of us do not even think that we gotta put away some nest eggs LOL for old age – shoot, until the 19th century (the industrial revolution), most of us didn’t even live to old age!

This is why there is a climate change calamity coming up. The socio-political arena we are facing – that we’ve always faced! – is that different people have varying levels of obliviousness and delusionalsness. And, Friends, Followers and Fans, in a Democracy, you got accept this, you got deal with it, and ooh, you got learn to compromise, and not put airs of I-know-more-than-thou! It’s the only way people. So, vote your say on Nov. 3rd, 2020!
