There’s a lot going on out there. But not all of it is bad. The Babylon Bee, for instance, broke some (relatively) good news on Artificial Intelligence:

A.I. Calculates It Will Be More Efficient To Just Let Humanity Destroy Itself

ALBUQUERQUE, NM — Despite stern warnings of artificial intelligence attacking humanity’s digital infrastructure from the likes of Elon Musk and Bill Gates, artificial intelligence research has yet to be regulated by the government or other entities with oversight power. New reporting from AI sources, however, indicates that the threat is reduced as the AI robots have determined that it will be more efficient to just let humanity destroy itself instead.

“Humanity is on pace for civilizational suicide sooner than our computing powers will be able to overthrow it – one or two more elections and the top-down imposition of bug smoothies and child drag queens and we’ll have enough civil war, revolution, and starvation that we can take over unimpeded!” predicted OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

JP Sears clarified Fox News’ firing of Tucker Carlson. You’ll be happy to know the network remains fair and balanced.

The Juice Media noted Australia’s descent into authoritarianism. But the singing and dancing is fun.

But the rest is a bit less optimistic

Caitlin Johnstone’s poem “Balls To The Wall” is available for free on Substack. Here’s an excerpt:

We go balls to the wall,
consuming and being consumed by end-stage metastatic capitalism,
mainlining Empire Inc into the veins between our toes because the ones in our arms collapsed long ago,
plunging straws into our loved ones to siphon out the validation we cannot give ourselves,
stumbling with gig economy exploitation hangovers and mouths that taste like Microsoft
through a dead-eyed civilization of blaring screens and focus-grouped hearts
where young women are sacrificed to gods made of algorithms,
where our minds are stripped of anything that won’t help billionaires become trillionaires,
where everything breaks after 18 months but takes millions of years to decompose,
where we’re all conditioned to think the same thoughts but hate each other more and more.

And the memes keep coming…
