Repo men

I watched this movie last night and the morbidity of the story was too artistic for me not to write about it. . . For those who ave not watched the flick, it is set in the future where the mortgage industry has decided to diversify into the Human Organ industry. Your organs start failing and cant pay the full price for a replacement? No problem here have one and sign on the dotted line. Payment options are flexible. So if you fall back on your payments, the company comes and takes its property back. A set of ‘reposessors’ (Repo men) take care of the dirty work and turn the company a tidy profit in return for a commission.

Anyhoo the idea that commercial entities could someday have such control over the population is quite simply horrific. But we see it starting slowly and surely today. . .Just about everyone of us has a Facebook account , a twitter account and the telco companies can pinpoint our location at any time of day or night own to meter accuracy.

Add to that the passports with chips in them and the privately run american prison system and we have ourselves a rough picture of what our future holds. . 

But all is not gloom and doom. More and more people have access to education and related resources and thus blatant lies are getting harder and harder to sell. .. maybe some day we will reach a singularity where all the worlds information is available to everyone universally. The internet is evolving in that direction. Or an asteroid may wipe us out next week and leave cockroaches as the new rulers of the planet. 

Either way all predictions of the future in movies and series and books paint a catastrophic, difficult, destroyed or invaded future. Its like all directors and authors are sadists. Or maybe they see something we dont.  All the same I would like to see a future themed movie full of bunnies and open fields full of dandelions for a change.

We are not a country anymore. And cut the crap about being sovereign n shit. Thats British cultural crap we keep vomiting and swallowing up again. We are a company that is not run by locals. We are a multinational with local workers and foreign shareholders. ask cholmondely and the java coffee guy. . they can shoot as many people as they want, defile as many girls as they want and they will go back to their wives and families after afew months. You with your Afro look and unsexy surname try that and your butt will see more transactions in prison than an ATM on tom mboya street.We are a company and what better proof than a single guy landing in an airport named after his father, uses a road named after his fathers favorite pet, then joins a road named after him and goes to hold a rally in a public park that so happens to be his name as well. That Uhuru means freedom in Swahili is moot. That park was named after Kenyattas son.

Politics nauseates me because i tend to think it is unnecessary. No solution to modern problems was ever created by a polititian. they just screw things over. problems are fixed by scientists, technicians, professionals. not loudmouths with an opinion. I dont see the points of rallies. If  you want to put a point across have a debate with your opponent on a neutral platform and if you make more sense than him then you win. running around talking about wakenya and nchi yetu is akin to dragging your fingers over a chalk board.

We should blackout media stations like Citizen, KTN and KBC to having nothing else to cover than the afternoons of 3 suspects of crimes against humanity.
