Professional Murder – 1

Kawlon1_1884

This blog was originally posted in March of 2015 under the title The American Way of Research. It is reprinted here as the first in a trilogy about death caused intentionally by prestigious professionals. The BTW at the end alludes to the media at the time screaming about a single beheading by a terrorist. The exploits of Dr Southam in comparison received barely a whisper.

___________

In 1952 Chester M. Southam, a researcher for the Sloan-Kettering Institute, injected Ohio State Prison inmates with live cancer cells. The prisoners weren’t told. Neither were the 300 women at the Sloan-Kettering Institute where other doctors performed their research.

Ten years later Chester was at it again. This time 22 elderly hospital patients got to make a contribution to cancer research. The administration of the Jewish Chronic Disease Hospital tried to keep Chester’s research secret, but word got out and Dr. Southam was punished. He was put on probation for one year. Two years later he was elected Vice President of the American Cancer Society.

That was 50 years ago. You might think that things have changed. They have.

”Research involving human subjects has become big business. Currently, more than 10,000 programs and an estimated 45,000 researchers conduct medical research on humans in the United States.” (The Prison as Laboratory by J.A. Talvi, InTheseTimes, Jan. 23, 2002)

And the Sloan-Kettering Institute, now called Memeorial Sloan Kettering, is rated as the #1 cancer hospital in the USA. Charity Watch gives it its highest rating, an A. Perhaps it’s worth mentioning that the heads of Charity Watch are salaried at $2 million/year. It’s the American Way. Business as usual.

BTW: Cutting someone’s head off (quick and practically painless death) is an act of saintly kindness compared to injecting someone with cancer.

Bullshit Fake

Skorsit_192249
Intellectuals speak of fake,
fake this, fake that.
The people say, bullshit,
bullshit dis and bullshit dat.
Sorry to break the fake
and squash the shit,
but it’s neither growl or bark.
They both miss the mark.
Not because of the word they use
but because they explain
a piece of the game
and hide the whole in confuse.

The entire system is a lie,
a bullshit fake spitting in reality’s eye.
A money-oriented rule has the people in a bind,
starring at fake bullshit,
lusting for things till blind
despite a people-oriented mind.

Money rules,
and money’s tools twist people into fools.
1% shower everyone with their view.
Press the red button or choose the blue.
That’s democracy say the few
and the majority pay anew
with freedom to whine, hate, and obey
and sing me-me-me along the way
sounding like the blues.

The entire system is THE lie.
It was never great, so don’t even try
to readjust gold and paper feathers
to persuade a false bird to fly.

The future starts with the first step in the right direction
equipped with truth and determination
to use cooperation
to build a just foundation
for a world powered by love’s radiation.

Hate Black Lives Matter

IronStone-1040882

I hate the slogan Black Lives Matter, aka BLM, because I hate racism. BLM goes nowhere because it has no goal, but merely begs the Masters to be lenient. Please Massah, don’t hurt me! It does nothing to combat racism. On the contrary, it’s a valve to let off steam, and then get back to business (and racism) as usual. I criticized the slogan when it first appeared 5 years ago under Obama’s watch. (See: Black Lives DON’T Matter) What’s happened since then? The police in have upgraded their weaponry, violence and racism.

The BLM slogan hatched from a military psyops division to divert and dilute any meaningful opposition to the powers that be. It’s a far cry from We Shall Overcome, or Martin Luther King’s “We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”, not to mention Malcolm X’s “Our people are within our rights to protect themselves by whatever means necessary.”

BLM says nothing. Whose lives doesn’t matter? BLM is as bloodless as “Black Lives Are the Real Thing” or any other catchy slogan that sounds good but says nothing. The police are supposed to serve and protect the citizens. Those who harass, beat, jail and kill citizens instead are terrorists with badges. Police departments polluted with these uniformed racists should be designated terrorist organizations. And not only racists, but blatant thieves as well. What is asset forfeiture, if not “legal” theft committed mostly against Whites? Don’t expect to see demonstrators holding signs claiming White Possessions Matter! Have you seen any slogans targeting racist or criminal police?

Black people have been and are the most tormented, oppressed, exploited, tortured and brutalized ethnic group in the USA. They’ve been victimized for centuries in a monumental crime against humanity. When it rains you can be sure many of the drops are tears of angels caused by the injustice inflicted upon these people. This gives the Blacks no right to be racists. On the contrary, it should place them at the forefront of the struggle against racism and for justice and respect for all people. For their own sake, because none of us, regardless of our race, religion, nationality, sex or ethnic group, is going to find the values of freedom, peace, justice, love, truth, beauty and mercy that vibrate in the soul of all Homo sapiens (who are 99.7% alike) if we don’t struggle together.

It’s either that or “perish together as fools.”

has but one color and flows with no sound

Black Racism

__________________

Andre Vltchek claims “It Is All About Race” (June 12, 2020 “Information Clearing House) and compounds this nonsense, first by telling us that it’s “Awful Hypocrisy To Say It’s Not!” and then by explaining that it’s a question of White people’s racism. Andre is one of the top progressive journalists in the West. How can he utter such garbage? I’m confused. My troll-radar is blinking fanatically. It’s just too stupid. We all say and do stupid things at times, but some stupidity goes beyond natural ability. It’s just TOO stupid. Like in intentional. But, to repeat, I’m confused. I therefore offer this blog that was originally posted 8 years ago.

Racism is a cold dark place where life cannot thrive. It lives in the hearts of most people. Unfortunately. For most people.

Racism in its mildest form sees other people through the superficial filter of race. No hatred need be involved. Believing that racial characteristics affect the quality of character displays a basic ignorance of human nature. It also deprives us of the abilities to see beauty and discover wisdom.

Black Americans (people with dark skin who have traces of African ancestry) often speak of slavery as an evil perpetrated by white people. Slavery was a monumental evil that caused unimaginable misery. White people were deeply and broadly involved in supporting and promoting slavery. Many Black Africans were also directly responsible for the slave trade and all that it implies.

After the initial surprise of the first slave raiders (from Portugal), the Africans mounted effective resistance and beat the raiders back. The Africans had better boats, knew the territory and the waters much better and displayed clever tactical maneuverability and fierce courage. The European aggressors were simply no match for the native defenders.

The raiders did not give up. They shed their raider skin and returned as traders. If anyone said, “Beware of Europeans bearing gifts.” the Africans receiving the gifts didn’t seem to hear. Trading things for people opened the door to the well-stocked slave shop. Over the next three centuries the slave trade would kill millions upon millions of Africans and enslave millions and millions of others. Africans and their obedient gangs of slave hunters killed and rounded up other Africans who they served packaged in ropes, chains and cages to the European traders. The slave trade, this monumental evil devouring some 20 million people over hundreds of years could not have been possible without the willing and active participation of generations of Black Africans.

Viewing slavery as a crime of White people is a dim view. So dim that is nearly blind. And it’s racist. Money puts people in chains. Money. As long as we allow ourselves to be blinded and driven by racist perspectives, the moneyed rulers will remain enthroned in positions of power. Until we learn to see each other as people—equals—regardless of the superficial differences of our appearance (or our nationality, religion or sex), we will remain the subjects and slaves of “traders” who view people as commodities.

Racism is a cold and dark place. It can be found anywhere. Even in the warm light of beautiful Africa.

Rich Poor People, Poor Rich People

LouisXIV
The Sun King, Louis XIV of France, died 302 years ago. He was one of the wealthest people in the world at that time. Look at his robe! Obviously not prêt-á-porter. Today we would have a chart showing how many 1000s of people could be clothed by the cost of this one garment. Despite its luxury, it’s heavy, bulky and yet can’t prevent him from freezing his ass off when forced to travel in a bumpy, uncomfortable, uninsulated, 6-horse-powered carriage. The stockings he so proudly displays (We need another chart here.) tells us that his royal bottom need not shiver. This might be so, but try to imagine moving around in this get up! Thanks, but no thanks! His wig (Another chart, please!), the fashion of the day, designed to hide head sores indicating syphilis, often housed lice and other unpleasant tiny things.

The average commoner of today travels much faster and much more luxuriously in any cheap car than the 14th Louis could even have dreamed of. And could be entertained by a symphony orchestra during the ride, night or day in rain, snow or storm. Clothes? No royalty or noble of Louis’ day had the wardrobe of simple citizens today. Nice shoes, Lou, but I’ll stick with my runners.

The average citizen today lives better, ”richer”, in almost every aspect than kings, emperors and pharaohs of old. And, should humanity survive, the nobility of today (the billionaires and their court of millionaires) will be viewed as ”poor” sorry figures by the citizens of tomorrow.

Anxieties of defending, maintaining and increasing their wealth plagues the moneyed monarchs of today. They have as much trouble protecting their asses as Louis had. No amount of money can buy security when hot, cold and economic wars rage around the world. Their health will also be seen as endangered by future standards. Even the most pampered of them have children and grand children come into the world with polluted blood containing dozens of particles and chemicals from a contaminated environment. They don’t carry filthy wigs on their heads, but their heads are full of filthy ideas crawling around in ignorance due to their warped perspective of reality seen from the heights of their arrogance.

Although it could appear to be a paradox, the rich people of today would become much wealthier in a world where everyone is secure in their needs and wealth is as common as smiles.

Health is wealth. Security is wealth. Peace is wealth. Friendship is wealth. Freedom is wealth. Love is wealth. Respect is wealth. Justice is wealth. Nourishment is wealth. Knowledge is wealth. Love is wealth. Education is wealth. Solidarity is wealth. Laughter is wealth. Kindness is wealth. Motivation is wealth. Employment is wealth. Truth is wealth. Love is wealth. Trust is wealth. Opportunity is wealth. Happiness is wealth. Honesty is wealth. Love is wealth.

Love is wealth.

Fake Leaders

Does a leader lie to the followers?
Impossible.
A TV without a picture? A knife without a blade? A car without wheels?
Impossible.
Like a leader without truth.

If a leader doesn’t tell the truth to the followers,
the leader is a lie,
a ruler posing as a leader,
or a clown working for a ruler.

There is no such thing a leader who lies to the followers.
A lying leader is a fake
and the followers will probably awake.
Probably when it’s too late.

Like True Love

DragonRuler1090031

”A snake with a burning body
and a single claw beneath its big head
claims to be our ruler
to protect us from those who wished us dead.
That’s impossible of course,
because claws can’t grow beneath a head
and who believes anything
a ruler or burning snake has said?”

It’s the age of lies and darkness
with candles throughout the world.
Flames of decadence cast light.
And shadows.

System Humanity contains over 1340 posts.
Mostly prime political philosophy
casting light
in these dark and decadent times.
It
—like true love—
asks for nothing…
not likes
not subscribers
not sharing
not contributions.
(If a reader doesn’t take the initiative to subscribe
and spread the word,
the word or the reader isn’t up to par.)

System humanity is not affiliated with any group,
organization, institution, business or party.
It
—like true love—
gives
and asks nothing in return.
This is neither generosity, philanthropy or goody-goodyism.
It’s selfishness.
System humanity needs you.
We can’t survive
if not together
in truth and solidarity.

Seeing a Pandemic

SeeYet1090007
What you see is seldom what you get
depends on your needs, depends on your bet,
depends on your angle, depends on your debt.
depends if you’re hunting or struggling in a net
depends if you’re begging or 1st class in a jet.
You’ve probably not seen the worst or best yet.
But you’ve probably seen that life has no reset.

Dartwill Aquila

The Covid-19 pandemic has infected the world with many questions, most of which remain unsolved. Contradicting answers show up in different places. Even national authorities fly opposing views and claims from other nations and authorities.
Let’s stick to what is known.

Politics rides the wild pandemic sitting on a medical saddle. Politics rather than science shapes the public view. Powerful interests fog the atmosphere. The numbers tell one story, the media narrative tells another. This “pandemic” has caused the death of 0,003% of the world’s population. That differs insignificantly from a typical winter influenza. But the impression is formed that a Middle Age plague has been resurrected.
Politics. The politics of fear.

The death statistics beat drums of doom. Out of context. The daily tally rings a chilly toll. The elderly contracting the virus are portrayed as receiving a death sentence. “So and so many over 70 have died today”, we are told every day, and are given a comparison with the day before.

How refreshing to hear an interview with Professor Kim Woo-joo from (South) Korea University Hospital, one of the world’s leading experts on virus epidemics. When asked about the death rate for Covid-19 victims in Korea, Kim quoted the following statistics:
80 years of older = 11.6%
in their
70s = 6.3%
60s = 1.5%
50s = 0.5%
40s = 1 patient
30s = 1 patient
No deaths under 30.

Compare these figures with deaths among populations in general and discover that Corona isn’t a particularly dangerous medical condition for older people. Older people die more often than younger people. Surprise! Surprise!

Covid-19 statistics can also be compared with other causes of death. Take any death-causing disease and shout out the daily sum every day in every news report and watch that disease become the celebrity health-eating monster. Suicides have been increasing for years. I suspect the latest figures show an even greater increase because unemployment affects suicide frequency, and a tsunami of unemployment has resulted from the tactics to deal with Covid-19.

1% increase in unemployment causes an increase of 4000 to 40000 deaths in the USA depending the sources. 4000 or 40000? Big BIG difference. There is however not the slightest doubt that unemployment causes death. Even using the lowest estimate (4000 for 1% increase) we can see that the isolation response will kill far more people than the pandemic itself. This is a real life-taking monster in the room. But let’s not talk about that. It’s enough to drive some people to suicide. And death is only one aspect of unemployment. Megan McArdle called unemployment “A fate worse than Death” in a Time article (Feb. 19, 2014), and added, “Unemployment will always be one of the worst things that ever happened to you.”

Not true Megan. A politicized money-oriented way of life based on private-power (as opposed to a people-oriented way of life based on community power) is THE worse thing that has been happening to us for thousands of years. An open debate and honest research throughout a people-powered world would have answered all questions and equipped us to deal with this (perhaps severe) bout of influenza in short order while protecting those most vulnerable. In other words, 1% of the richest people on the planet are the least competent to deal with the health of 99% of the people. Yet they rule. Profit rules. Greed rules. As witnessed by science (truth) being subordinate to politics in the form of private power.

Imaging Imagine

Beware of those wave a flag and drag a hook from their ass.

 John Lennon
born 1940
died at the age of 40
will be gone 40 years this year.
It’s enough to get biblical
but I won’t.

John encouraged us to imagine a world where
all the people lived in peace
sharing all the world.

Imagining such a world isn’t hard to do, sang John.
Sorry, John,
I’m afraid you overestimated the dreamers
and underestimated the schemers
who
instead of imagining living in peace as one
struggle to keep the world a tool
for 1% of the people
to grow in greed
spreading nightmares and illusions
that possessions offer protection
against species annihilation.

The people scream
instead of dream:
Me, me, me
and lose the image of a world
where
war doesn’t exist,
and everyone is secure in their needs,
where
confident people greet each day with motivation
to protect and improve the well-being of everyone,
where
the childish joy of life never fades.

Imagine!
