Joe Rogan shared a scary thought on Instagram on Tuesday evening, March 31, expressing the idea of the world never returning to normalcy.
However, he did preface his message by stating that the thought was provoked due to him smoking “the devil’s cabbage.”
“Sometimes when I smoke the devil’s cabbage and think about how infinitely, and unbelievably bizarre the current state of affairs are, I get the unmistakable sensation that things are never going back to normal, because normal was always just an attractive illusion,” said Rogan.
In the IG post, Rogan posted two pictures along with the caption. A picture of the Tiger King, and a screenshot of a tweet from president Trump.
“President Trump is a ratings hit. Since reviving the daily White House briefing Mr. Trump and his coronavirus updates have attracted an average audience of 8.5 million on cable news, roughly the viewership of the season finale of ‘The Bachelor.’ Numbers are continuing to rise…,” said Trump, who seemed to be quoting a news source in which he didn’t name.
It seems that Rogans intention in posting the Tiger King, also known as Joe Exotic, was to show just how crazy this world can be, especially in certain regions, compiled with an endless supply of money.
Most recently, the COVID-19 quarantine was extended until the end of April, which is a month longer than what was expected when the U.S. started it’s quarantine in mid March.
Hopefully Rogan is wrong about his ideas provoked by the “devil’s cabbage,” and we can return to some kind of normalcy soon.
However, his thoughts aren’t completely unfathomable, they are what most people fear the world will inevitably come to, one day.
