“Good intentions, like mother’s milk, are a perishable commodity. As wealth accumulates, men decay, and sooner or later an aristocracy that once might have aspired to an ideal of wisdom and virtue goes rancid in the sun, becomes an oligarchy distinguished by a character that Aristotle likened to that of ‘the prosperous fool’ — its members so besotted by their faith in money that ‘they therefore imagine there is nothing that it cannot buy.’”
Lewis Lapham, Feast of Fools

Thoughts for September 4th, 2012

Well, by now it seems that it truly does not matter at all who is installed in this U.S. government. Every Puppet-Administration, whether Democrat, Republican, are used as a mere distraction; An intentional diversion away from the ongoing and highly successful collaboration among thieves to continue their goals to commit Mass Fraud and to freely Plunder anything left of the already ravaged earth (extracting by theft ALL remaining natural resources). Any and Every tool, dupe, pimp, quisling installed in any Administration will do what ever they are told by the real Power Brokers: The Trillionaires, The Robber Barons, the Tycoons.

Each administration has followed, in lock-step, the ongoing and thorough DEREGULATION of every single industry, along with the ongoing Privatization of ALL previously public sectors. Mitt Romney, for instance, is just another clueless Figurehead; He, like Obama, will do exactly whatever he’s told: More Deregulation and Privatization, and More Tax Cuts for the Uber-Wealthy. Yes, DEREGULATION is the same as giving an Idiot-Child a Machine Gun.
Today, everything that so many people in this country have struggled long against and fought for HARD, sometimes even to their very own demise, Everything that has been fought for long and hard over many years, Voting Rights for Black men, Women’s Suffrage, the Civil Rights movement, Worker’s Rights, Unions; all of these “basic” and “fundamental” Rights, brutally and violently opposed by the Ruling Classes, were fought for to produce and ensure a robust middle class; and to create and maintain a rudimentary measure of a more Fair and Just system for all, Rich and Poor alike. Today, every organized effort, every life lost in pursuit of Fairness and Justice for all, has been thoroughly erased and intentionally destroyed. And WE the people, the hoodwinked, the lulled, the complacent, the lazy, have let it all happen. And now the Corporate takeover of the United States and of the entire world is complete.

The entire SLAVE-based economy is, in FACT, the political structure itself. Indeed the entire economy of the world has been and still is deliberately engineered by the very few men in and of the WHITE POWER STRUCTURE. These very few shadowy figures, i.e. the Trillionaires, the Robber Barons, the Tycoons (take your pick) have been from the very inception of controlled human societies and communities, in Control. it is THOSE people who have been and still are pulling ALL THE STRINGS of the mere Puppets in this OSTENSIBLE government (Look Up “Ostensible”).

So these men, who themselves comprise the [WHITE] POWER STRUCTURE, have succeeded for quite some time to keep a fairly tight lid on too much knowledge, learning, awareness, fact-based truth; Since learning and discovering actual FACTS would, of course, lead to bitter protest and violent revolt, and maybe even a fate far worse e.g. similar to the French Revolution.
Religion is the deliberate suppression of knowledge and sciences and overt suppression of actual facts. Religion has been A HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL Tool. “Fervor” and self-delusion was, and still is today, accomplished through organized religion and serves to reinforce the desired effect of Abject Ignorance which is, of course, the ABSOLUTE KEY in the game of mind control; Pacification through Religion and the tireless campaigns of keeping people in ignorant FEAR and insane self-righteousness.

Further, the outright lies which are found throughout all religions, serve as a vehicle for virulent, abject hatred; Hatred is produced by ignorance; ignorance serves to instill abject and usually quite irrational fear (of the unknown, of God, of Black people, of Hell, of Satan, Socialism, Fascism, on and on). The political hacks, in this scheme, have found that the employ of so-called buzz words, notable “God” and “Guns” has been and still is stunningly EFFECTIVE. IT DISTRACTS PEOPLE; Keeps them really dumb, too. And perhaps paralyzes them to render people just too numb to react to the daily atrocities.

There is a veritable myriad of other totally intentional distractions, deliberately designed to hide the truth, real history, FACTS, specifically the global slavery massive theft by fraud, for one, and the irreversible Plundering of all remaining natural resources.

Distractions on any and every contrived “side” of the political spectrum, the entire “Left”-“Right” paradigm, for instance, is one of the most useful and effective of contrivances; People are left confused and belligerent bickering about so-called “Issues,” Abortion, Gun Rights, Animal Rights, you name it… All Contrivances designed to distract the general populace away from the really big picture.

The game, then, is to distract the fools Away from what the Robber Barons are actually doing STEALING by brute force (WAR), that is, PLUNDERING, i.e. theft of other sovereign countries’ natural resources.
Every technique to distract is used; Mass media, which of course is wholly owned thereby entirely controlled by CORPORATE governance; Thus, the media outlets report NOTHING useful and everything asinine and inane. No matter the technique, All are forms of intentional trickery.

Religion, though again, has worked like a charm since the day it was invented and written down (by MEN), and Religion is still, bar none, the most highly effective tool for mind control today. Well, there WAS the period in history known as the Age of Reason, the Enlightenment… Well, We all know about THAT part of history, don’t we? CRUSHED IMMEDIATELY and THOROUGHLY BY (GUESS WHO); Replaced with RELIGION, NEVER TO SURFACE Widely AGAIN.

So, skipping straight to the late 20th century, the 1980′s specifically, the emergence of Ronald Reagan, his total embracing of R-wing “Christian” Fundamentalists– Lunatics; the beginnings of the Total DEREGULATION of ALL industry; the utterly Fantastic LIE of ”trickle-down” economics; And the new “service” economy, i.e. a boatload of low-paying thankless jobs, i.e. the “new” slave.

All these conspired deliberations worked hand in hand to set the new and more all-encompassing SLAVE-based economies (Yes, that means ALL OF US) and the Modern-Day Slavery, at least a veritable form of sharecropping; Working more and more for less and less, all while never being able to climb out of debt…Sound familiar, at least? 80 hour work weeks, climbing, declining standard of living, forever locked in debt…???

So it is that every [Puppet] Administration after that old bastard Reagan–Democrat, Republican–every government tool of the REAL POWER STRUCTURE Did follow, in lock-step, the ongoing and now thorough DEREGULATION of every single industry and the Privatization of ALL previously public sectors.

Clinton, of course, was among the most destructive of these twisted, perverted white men, as he is the one that repealed the Glass-Stegal Act that had been put into place by FDR after the Great Depression of the 1930s. Clinton did it, knowing very well the history and the certain ramifications [of giving a gigantic idiot-child a machine gun, i.e. DEREGULATION]; So, doing it anyway for his billionaire buddies in the Banks and on Wall Street; That, along with the passing of the Graham-Leech Bill, took away any and all restraints, i.e. REGULATIONS, from the banking industry and the financial sector..

So, look around NOW. The “Powers” tanked the economy deliberately; They want, for lack of a better term, Zombie-Slaves that won’t think or even ask why: (IDIOT-AMERICA). And they’ve sure GOT them and they’ve got them by the BOAT LOAD.

Slavery Then and Slavery Now:

The main difference (other than race, i.e. skin color) between slavery then and slavery now, is that NOW, as the world is literally collapsing from overpopulation and centuries of destructive pillaging and ruinous plundering of the entire planet, the main difference is that those few men whom are still in cahoots and “controlling” the people, the governments, etc., are thoroughly capable of committing mass Genocide; Indeed, it has become quite apparent that now we are all headed straight toward the edge of the Abyss at their command; And Engineered genocide is a clever and historic tactic; And that works too. They’ve been doing it all throughout history. Whether by Guns, Drugs, Prisons, Wars; You name it!! The main goal is very clear: Let “them” kill each other and themselves, on the battlefield, in the ghettos, in the many privately-owned, For-Profit Prisons, etc., The message is clear: Let them ALL simply DIE OFF.

For those that Disagree:

By the way, ALL of the others, women, Blacks, et al, are MARGINAL, at BEST, in this grim little charade. Meg Whitman, for example, is rich, but she’s still totally disposible; The women, the Blacks; They’re all, in Fact, mere Dupes in this “GAME.” And actually I blame it ALL on the ENTIRE HUMAN SPECIES; The Human animal is simply put, to quote John Gray now, an “exceptionally rapacious Primate.”

And further, I blame people for sheer and stubborn stupidity. Rather than seeking actual facts, most humans willfully choose to believe ENDLESS LIES and stupid fairy tales. People, as a rule HATE FACTS. Of course, on the most fundamentally impervious and horribly pervasive levels, Absolute Stupidity has morphed into a VIRTUE in America!! And it’s a Stupidity that is so base, so wide-reaching, that the destruction is total now. We’ve now reached the point of NO Return.

But, in the end, it is MAN that has ALWAYS had the Ultimate control; Whether by writing dumb, mind-numbing books (the Bible, the Koran) to scare people into submission, and to shut people’s mouths and to keep them ignorant; It’s all done to keep everyone directly and irretrievably under the MAN’S THUMB. Oh, and if books don’t work to keep people quiet and “in line,” then there is always sheer BRUTE FORCE.

Yet, in the END, the main and most fascinating issue is not that decent, kind people will starve in the streets of Rome As It Burns to the ground; No, indeed. The most interesting and ghastly fact is that we are all witnessing– i.e. watching in real-time–the total and irreversible devolvement of the entire human species. That’s it. In no other time than the Dark Ages and Today, has the human animal been so abjectly stupid and so wildly misinformed.

So, Can the Pope hear the shrieks from the doomed, neglected and pitiful masses? No? How about the wretched, plaintive wails from all neglected and truly fucked children? HA!! Thought so…
