- There is no such term in the political-lexicon of the
self-appointed that have been creating all the wars since the beginning
of recorded history. Beginning with the period immediately after WWII,
the designers of wars began to create an entirely new kind of war-they
call it "never-ending war."
- Korea was the first practice scrimmage-game to experiment
with the mind-numbing idiocy of wars without purpose; wars that could be
'fought' without gains and with losses that could be marginalized to justify
whatever might leak out from the various frontlines of conflict. In this
case it was 'contained' in the larger opaque envelope of 'The Cold War.'
- From there we moved into Vietnam in 1959, which became
official and far more serious with LBJ's Gulf-of-Tonkin resolution, and
then was expanded into Laos and Cambodia by Nixon. That ended in defeat
for the US in 1975.The cost was 58,119 killed, 153,303 wounded, 1,948 missing
in action, in eighteen long and bitter years of unilateral war.
- Fast-forward through Somalia, Grenada and Panama (over
4,000 killed there) to arrive at the beginning of the War on Iraq. "US
Dept. of Veterans: 73,846 US troops dead, 1,620,906 disabled. The SAME
GOVERNMENT AGENCY REPORT CONFIRMS 1.6 MILLION "DISABLED" BY THE
WAR!" These figures cover all troops in Iraq from 1991 to 9-26-2007;
that's eighteen years and a lot more casualties than Americans have been
led to believe there have been. (1)
- Why do these discrepancies matter so much; precisely
because the figures that the public was given have been another gigantic
lie, on top of all the other lies we were told about both the wars themselves
and how we came to be in them in the first place.
- After WWII most Americans considered themselves to be
decent, caring people; people that would come to the aid of the underdog,
without needing to be prodded. But what happened in the military-industrial-congressional-complex;
after that war forever altered both the purpose and the point of national-international
conflicts for the USA: All this was done, for the most part in secret.
- However the political swine had a lot of help from business
and the war machine that envisioned a huge income stream, if only they
could keep their wars going indefinitely.
- To do this they needed to take control over education
and the arts, and they began by cutting civics and language classes at
the Junior Highschool level, followed shortly after by the arts. Throughout
the 1950's the Gray-Flannel Suit became the hallmark of the new business
paradigm where corporate rising stars were expected to follow draconian
orders in order to climb those golden ladders to the top. Company loyalty
was prized over family considerations and the pattern for fascist ownership
of multi-national businesses was assured. Once this was established, the
siren call for science and math became the new battlecry in corporate boardrooms
far and wide. The largest casualty in this new twist was the death of emotional
and mental health among those seeking the new never-ending upward growth,
at the expense of having real lives with other real people in their lives.
- After technology and the 401k altered the entire global
business structure, in favor of stocks and bonds, the public quickly discovered
that they too could share in this newfound income stream, provided that
they remained silent about what really happened in these created conflicts
that could yield huge profits on several fronts with just the stroke of
a pen; in some cases in just a one-minute phone call. So the fix was in,
not just with the politicians and the other criminal elements from the
Corporatocracy but as part of a sub-cult that began to drive the new American
- The goal throughout the above ventures was to create
the totally controllable business-slave that would act on command without
consideration for anything which they might be ordered to do: the spinoff
from this job-ensuring behavior was employees that would never question
the company about anything they were ordered to do-and all of this was
of course justified by increased pay and benefits with every new hurdle
that each newly-minted corporate slave managed to accomplish. As their
numbers grew; outsiders were eliminated from the workforce, and individual
talents were shunned by the "team ethic" that insured compliance
in even the smallest details of the work-life of every good employee. Personal
habits were scrutinized, friendships were put under the watchful eyes of
the thought police, and the "1984" world of corporate life was
born on que, as America began to book its passage on this down-bound midnight-express:
Headed straight into hell itself.
- Thirty years after the end of WWII, this country had
become unrecognizable when compared with the nation that had fought in
the Second World War. Our individuality had been systematically murdered
in the back-alley's of corporate life, our dreams and aspirations had been
unscrupulously crushed to fit into the briefcases and portfolios of the
'suits' that were now running the circus-and already "Resistance was
- It was at this point that ordinary people began to embrace
the wider-cult of criminality that had already seized this nation. Those
who expected to profit in it instinctively knew that loyalty to the 'masters'
was uppermost, as surely as they knew that whistle-blowers were to be shunned
at all costs: So the construction of the new façade began with an
air of optimism about all the booty that would soon come to everyone who
'did their part' and asked no questions-ever! This was an additional thirty
years back, when this nightmare actually became serious.
- Along the way the United States began to develop a culture
that was more than friendly to international war criminals like Henry A.
Kissinger (East Timor and Chile) and Dick Cheney, and Rumsfeld the arms
peddler and legalized drug pusher along with others such as Brzezinski
and his chess board ideas whereon he wants us to play out the end of the
human race. Both Kissinger and Brzezinski are presidential advisors to
Barack Obama. But this also includes figures like Madeline Albright, the
Secretary of State that believed there would be no problem with killing
500,000 Iraqi children with our sanctions on Iraq. The above people are
all now treated with great respect by the US government, even though the
world hates the ground upon which they each still walk without fear of
any prosecution. Apparently the same is true for George W. Bush and Rice,
and Powell, along with all those advisors that were disinterred from their
days with the US Death Squads in Nicaragua and El Salvador, to serve again
under Cheney and now Obama-in the upside down world where freedom and democracy
were butchered along with the Republic, just to make a buck for certain
of the indispensable élites among our Zionists that have nothing
to do with being Jewish.
- Somewhere in all of this, the numbers of the mutilated
and the dead Americans became inconsequential to all except their relatives
and loved ones. And as for the millions that were crippled, displaced or
murdered in these various plots and intrigues: They didn't even merit counting!
- Which brings us to the national-herd that made this all
possible? What happened to their minds, their private thoughts, and most
of all their own ability to see and understand their own part in all of
this? It was erased, with their permission, for a small consideration of
more stuff and a bit more power and all of this came, of course, with strings
attached. From the outside it seems difficult to understand; but given
the climate of corruption at every level of life and human interaction
in America today-it might seem only natural-especially since to oppose
this new paradigm was to be a loser, someone not smart enough to take advantage
of everything and everyone on whom they might be able to make a buck or
- The dye was cast; and then came the beginning of the
housing crash and all the shaking of the once massive-pillars of society
that everyone simply believed could never just collapse into colossal ruin.
But now even as the pillars continue to crack and fall, the credit-bubble
looms, and the rumors of the not just empty treasury, but of the chasm
of our international debt that can never be repaid is looming large upon
- How did we really get here? First we passed, on trying
to distinguish between the things in our lives that are important and those
events and occupations that were created simply to consume our every idle
moment, for a price of course! In this process, most will dump their excess
baggage-so we jettisoned our principles, or values, our private consciences-in
favor of becoming fully fledged members of the acquisition society where
we traded in our citizenship for consumer status; and our morals for heavy
shots of the risky and bizarre with no thought for any consequence in the
home-movies we were living in, as if they were the only reality after all.
- Problem is; this kind of society only consumes itself
while building nothing. It creates nothing new or innovative and basically
is built on the destruction of everything that came before it. Relationships
between people that do not depend upon the exchange of money are meaningless-in
fact other people have meaning only if they are useful in some way to our
personal bottom-lines. We are a society surrounded by price-tags, trinkets
and 'pleasures' that drain our bank-accounts; baubles that and add nothing
to the essence of the beings, but rather, this society specializes in consuming
massive quantities of emptiness.
- What is missing from life today is 'love' on any level.
Without love there can be no dreaming, no story; no life at all worth living.
The existence of actual substance is what supports the fragile power at
the depth of self (beyond the trio that Freud made famous). This is the
invisible self in each of us that enables that capacity for love which
creates a world worth living in; a world that is both natural and universal.
- But 'this love is not surrender: This love is furious
and brave and loud. It can be heard in the voices of the children-the sound
of carefree children laughing is louder than the bombs that will soon turn
so many back into the dust from which they came. The world needs to come
back together with that incredible noise and fury' that is life itself
reborn. To hell with the Corporate Victorian slant on slavery; long live
the rebels that keep us free!
