Singer Matt Bellamy is convinced that “the end is near.” But what exactly? This is what he talked about in a new interview with NME.
The rock musician notes that “the end of a certain civilization cycle” is occurring, describing our era as a period of “great transition.”
Announces: “The end is near… the end of what, though? This isn’t the end of humans. It’s definitely not the end of the world. This is definitely not the end of evolution. In fact, if we’re being honest, this isn’t the end of humanity, is it? But it’s the end of something. It’s the end of a certain civilized cycle.”
continues: “If you look at history, you will find that they are just cycles that come and go. Some call them ‘debt cycles.’ They are related to credit, money and the functioning of banking systems. Cycles can last a few hundred years or a few decades. In fact, we have reached a critical point where it will be There is disruption. Everyone is doing everything they can to pretend that it won’t happen or trying to maintain the status quo, but the longer they hold on to it, the worse it will be when it happens. If we can make the transition more gradual, it may be less violent. But it will be change Big and big. We’re talking about economic collapse, change and reinvention, total energy transformation. That’s really what we’re dealing with here: disruptive transformation.”
In this context, Bellamy believes that the crisis could give way to a new political order: I think everyone knows we want a revolution, but we definitely don’t want a bunch of right-wing authoritarian lunatics. It’s the last thing we want. And we don’t want a completely left-wing communist solution either. I think what we want is something completely new. I don’t think it exists at the moment, but I do think a new kind of politics could emerge. I would call it Meta-Centrism. It’s a fluctuation between the libertarian liberal values of individuals – social life, the ability to be any gender, that kind of thing – but also more socialist in things like land ownership, nature, and energy distribution. It’s an oscillation between the two poles.”
Add : “I’m basically anti-authoritarian — it’s just me, I was born this way. So if I hear certain things that make me say, ‘Don’t start telling me to do this or live like this’, no matter which side it comes from, I will probably resist it.”
Later in the interview, he said: “We live in a time when it is really important to be able to support yourself in the event of prolonged power outages, cyber attacks, food supply crises, and an energy crisis. These things are going to start happening now. But at the same time, we don’t want to lose sight of about the things that bring us together, and the social bonds we have.”
He concludes by saying: “All these people on Twitter are fighting over who said what and how they said it – I’m sure people 50 years from now will look at this moment in history and be like, ‘What the hell were they thinking?’ Why didn’t they see the bus that was going to hit them? “
Largely inspired by events from 2020 to the present day, and featuring lyrics related to the topics of this interview, Muse’s new album, Will Of The People, will be released on August 26 via Warner Records.
