There has been a strong Saturnian trend in the world ever since the start of 2020 when Saturn joined with Pluto in Capricorn. Now with Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius for much of 2021, the focus remains Saturnian but with a totally different flavor than before. In Capricorn Saturn’s presence can seem dark, heavy, and at times confining. In Aquarius it can seem distinctly heady and intellectual, while also cold and detached. However, Old Father Time is not and has never been without a sense of humor. It’s just that his humor is usually on the dark side, rather dry, and bordering on the tip of the periphery of an extremely intense awkwardness. It’s that kind of humor that is both random and “so funny you forgot to laugh”.
Such is the comedy of today, which has suddenly become popular during Saturn’s transit through Aquarius. I won’t be naming any names here, but suffice to say that so-called edgy, “woke” comedians are now summarizing the gimmicks of the New World Order, bullet point by bullet point in their well produced satire spiels and skits. What’s amazing is just how accurate many of their points are, to the degree that they’re now receiving praises from their audience as if they’re somehow dropping truth bombs in a way that makes them saints. The knowledge was there all along, shared by those who have been and continue to get persecuted for speaking out, and now that it’s become obvious and much more widespread, they’re branding and packaging it as if its the most original work they’ve come up with to boot. Hilarious!
As much as these comedic truthers mock big corporations and social media platforms that have been known to rip people off, they slyly promote them simultaneously. They have several sponsorships with paid promotions. This all happens in a way that seems so freaking ridiculous, it doesn’t even make any sense. These guys keep upgrading their presentations to appeal to both those who “get it” and those who don’t even understand the gravity of these jokes on humanity. They won’t be directly affected though. They’re doing just fine, all dolled up and laughing their asses off all the way to their online bank accounts. If they weren’t getting sponsored by such major companies it’s hard to say how courageous they would be in spilling the beans on the technocratic take-over agenda, even through sarcasm. Isn’t it funny how that works? It’s called hypocrisy.
George Carlin was way ahead of the game, being too hardcore to be caught selling things and services on stage. With him there was no guesswork about where he stood when it came to world politics, and whether or not he was trying to score points and seduce people with his charm. He clearly didn’t give a shit. Bill Hicks was another iconic dark comedian unafraid to massively criticize social and political disfunction, and he specifically nailed pop culture con artists who profited from excess advertising.
As things continue to get weirder and weirder on planet earth, and what was once taboo becomes commonplace, what people consider to be funny is bound to shift. We’ve entered an era where just about anything goes. Everything’s so whack, there seems nothing left to do but succumb to the entrainment, not to be confused with entertainment.
Don’t get me wrong, those who know me well know that I enjoy some black humor on occasion. Even I have laughed at a few of the jokes that these high achieving, modern day, internet comedians have made. Then I sat in dismay afterward, realizing that saying “anything for a buck” applies here just as it does when it comes to cheap items made in China, capitalizing on the needs and wants of the time.
