FIFTH WILL AND TESTAMENT

This house is a cage with an open door—and I am in this cage alone.

This Digital Age is a cage with no door at all—and we are in this cage together.

This Digital Age is the end of the world.

And the end of the world never ends.

Of course no one has any respect for me—I am desperately poor.

No one has ever had any respect for the poor—especially the desperately poor.

The majority of Black Americans keep thinking they are disrespected because they are Black.

The majority of Black Americans are disrespected because they are poor.

Yet a huge minority of White Americans—possibly the majority, at this point—are also disrespected because they are poor.

Though the poor are victims of endless discrimination—poverty itself does not discriminate at all.

This Digital Age is the worst time in American history for any Americans to be poor—because unrestrained Digital-Age technology has destroyed the family and the community in the United States.

Even during the Great Depression, the impoverished majority of Americans received support from their families and communities.

But there are no more families or communities in the United States—unrestrained Digital-Age technology has destroyed them.

So the poor in the United States today—especially the desperately poor—are actually suffering more than the poor in the United States during the Great Depression.

This is just one reason this Digital Age is the end of America—and the end of the world.

If 326 million people get rid of their cellphones and smartphones, and close their Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts, they can restore the family and the community in the United States—and thereby prevent the end of America, and the end of the world.

This house is a cage with an open door—because this Digital Age is a cage with no door at all.

I began realizing this in the fall of 2015—even before the money stopped coming.

I was dangerously obese, and my blood pressure was high all the time.

So I started walking again.

I had walked before—years before.

Years before, I had walked for hours at a time—traveling great distances—in the afternoons and evenings.  Back then, I would often start in the dark—and finish in the morning sunlight.

This time, I started in the morning—and finished in the morning.

But two changes had occurred since I had last walked—two Digital-Age changes. And Digital-Age changes are always for the worse—never for the better.

[I started this post long before my father died—and I have decided to continue this narrative in another post, at another time]
