The City Is Flying

I still think that the world situation has been becoming more unstable since about 2014.

I had a few moments today before I drove to work when Clint Barton’s quote from Avengers kept going through my head: “The City is Flying… And I’m carrying a bow and arrow. None of this makes any sense. But, I’m going out there because it’s my job.”

I have a feeling that I’m going to feel like that many more times over the next few years.

Hah, 2014 is when I caught schizophrenia. Voices told me how WW3 starts in about twenty yeaes from then. So yeah, tell me how things turned for worse since.

I recently talked to a young man who joined the US military around 2014 about some of the destabilizing influences at that time. Some of them were in eastern Europe, where you seem to be, of course.

Age of Ultron was released in 2015, and it seems to feature an invasion of an eastern European nation which sets off a threat to world stability. I don’t think that is a coincidence. The flying city also becomes a sort of artificial island, a little like those constructed in the western pacific.

Yeah, the city is flying.

But. I intend to drive to work in a few minutes because it is my secular job. I hope I don’t get a bad case of covid.

I have been so removed from society that I didn’t know about the Avengers. So I looked it up on and found a movie. I think its the original one, from 2012. I just watched it.
I think of it as a fantasy about love of power and toughness, which is fine. It was entertaining.

I’m glad you found it entertaining. I think that the main goal of Marvel/Disney was to make the 23 movies entertaining and money-making. When so many artists work on stories over more than 50 years though, I think we would lose track of all the things the stories are ‘about.’

Thanks, Rosenthal. It’s just plain fun. It is creative.

The city is flying. I think that in the instability, some classes of people in the US have already lost their minds. Even without formally diagnosed psychosis.

And that’s sad.
