912 – 1 Political Fundamentalists

ArmFist1030367

Political fundamentalists cling to their beliefs as unshakably as religious fanatics adhere to theirs. Truth, facts and logic are rejected, absurdities, contradictions and impossibilities embraced. Their minds are structured on a level that need not concern itself with physical reality because their mental reality seems to supply their emotional needs. Seems! The strength of their resistance to truth, to physical realities, testifies to basic needs unattended. Security alludes them and they drug their chronic unhappiness with entertainment. Among other things.

Fear dominates existence. It seeps up from a well of ignorance polluting our psychological atmosphere, contaminating our emotional foundation and dimming our vision.

God is dead, even for the religious, and no core of substance anchors us to life because life, the most powerful force on earth, the family of the sun, the source of all holiness, is not enough. We want things, money. We prefer to have than to do; to own than to live. We want power without utility, prestige without honor, and happiness without accomplishment. We want individual freedom and security, but shun responsibility for the community, the basis of freedom and security. We adhere to a money-oriented system of society when a people-oriented one is our only, and last, hope for survival.

Fundamentalism. Fear. Alienation from life.

I use one concrete example to illustrate this rant of abstractions.
Chris Hedges. This hero of the left/progressives has time after time delivered scalding and informative criticism of the ruling powers. His remedies however have been anemic despite the passion of his rhetoric. He is illustrated in the picture above of a steel figure encouraging resistance, but not going anywhere.

I’ve been tolerant of his refusal to see beyond the lies of the liars version of the events of 912 – 1. We should be tolerant of fundamentalistic views and I’ve stretched my tolerance as more and more people see the truth of the conspiracy, particularly in light of the physical proof presented by thousands of architects and engineers.

But racism should not be tolerated and Chris steps over the line as a racist.
”This moment in history marks the end of a long, sad tale of greed and murder by the white races.”
The opening line of the essay in which this racist statement appears, reads:
”The idiots take over in the final days of crumbling civilizations.”
Although he names the Mayan and Chinese civilizations among example of crumbling ones, he chooses a racist term to describe the present one. Empires (civilizations) follow a predictable trajectory of growth, domination and decline characterized by greedy and murderous ”idiots”. Always. Everywhere. Race has nothing to do with it. Mixing race or religion into the stew of political struggle poisons the stew. It diverts from the economic basis of power and creates dissention. (See Black Racism)
Shame on you Mr.Hedges. May you get what you deserve.

Bad, Badder, Baddest News

HammarHead9920

The bad news is…
There is no good news.
The badder news is…
There ain’t goin’ be no good news…
The baddest news is…
perhaps you’d better get to your bunker first…
For those of you who don’t have a bunker…
There ain’t goin’ be no more news.
———

(This little satire is for the people who follow the media.
Many good things are happening everywhere,
but this news is not going to come to you.
You are going to have to find it yourself.)

Unlabeled Bad-guys

RedLongNose-1020853

A snappy young radio commentator named Kim Jung-un and Gaddafi to exemplify super bad-guys. We’ve all heard it before. We never hear an American president named among the major monsters even though these greed-diseased psychopathic murdering degenerates have demonstrated far deeper evil and registered far more kills than any of the often-named bad-guys and all the so-called terrorists combined.

Kim and Gaddafi couldn’t even qualify in G.W.Bush’s class of depravity. Besides George’s notorious lies, he chalked up over a million deaths, monumental destruction and canyons of despair resulting from his invasion of Iraq alone.

How many children have died screaming in agony due to Obama’s drone-dispatched hellfire missiles? Not to mention the damage and death to everyone and everything that happened to be in the vicinity of a suspected militant deemed worthy to be summarily executed by this ignoble Peace Prize pervert.

Trump… Oh why bother?

The invading, occupying, bombing, shooting, burning, stealing and killing country with 800 military bases throughout the world accuses non-aggressive countries of threatening the international community. Snappy radio commentators, pompous pundits and talking heads amplify this absurdity but can’t seem to find a negative term for the greed-diseased psychopathic murdering degenerates ripping the limbs from children, ravaging the environment and leading humanity along the trail of extinction.

Why bother?

The Ruler’s Rules

AngryHorse-1020822

The rulers are on an enterprise of conquest. They take whatever they can from whoever has anything using any means at their disposal. Violence and destruction accompany their efforts as surely as bullets a gun. This is as obvious as the flow of money (to the rulers) and the spread of conflicts and despair to everyone else (the people).

Opposing the rulers is a struggle for survival. The rulers must be opposed, not appealed to or influenced. The people must be helped, supported, encouraged, educated and united.

The rulers dominate the public sphere. They rule it. The people must act among the people to form the force that can weaken, weaken, weaken and defeat the rulers. Weaken the enemy and strengthen your own forces. That’s as basic as it gets. The rulers are also subject to these basics, but we don’t have to play by their rules.

Prophets of Nothing

cheapanger1030285.jpg

Captain Kate On Water was made a permanent part of the System Humanity site more than 3 years ago. It first appeared as the end of a longer story, The Holy & Captain K, written over 8 years ago. Soft-drink sales have declined during the entire period and the rate of decline increases. It would be nice to think that I have had something to do with the decline, but my influence has been so tiny as to be unmeasurable. That’s how it works. Many of us tiny, unmeasurable drops of influence have contributed to the flood of decline.

The Mercola webstite on the other hand has been a major influence.

Dr. Mercola battles against soft drinks and artificial sweeteners to improve health. Politics creep into his articles only where it is impossible to ignore. No one could pin a political label on the good doctor or attack him with -ism ending words. Nor could anyone deny his great service to the health of the people in general.

Comparing Dr. Mercola to most of the prominent political ”experts” criticizing the raging US empire, we find that these prophets of gloom have not advanced the wellfare of the citizens a single gram whereas the doctor has achieved tons. These intellectual heavies prescribe a diet of abstractions. We can’t find a single vitamin of specific action in their long wordy articles, which can be viewed as ideologic aspartame to sweeten the despair and gloom of the people. The tactic of refraining from soft-drinks in favor of water is not radical enough for them. They seek PROTEST in their impotent understanding of political struggle. Sometimes I wonder if they aren’t agents of the empire whether conscious of it or not. They scream protest, but cause passivity.

As a point of clarification, the water-not-soft-drink tactic is but one of hundreds of tactics to deprive corporations of profits, weaken the culture of consumerism, engage people in doable actions and promote the health of the people. Oh, read Captain Kate On Water and then think about “The Waterwork Campaign” when reading the radical diatribes of the prophets of nothing.

10-Ton Terrorists Killing For Our Sins

4Swans1030242
(Four teenage swans pointing with their asses to the powers on high.)

The USA dropped a massive bomb on a location in eastern Afghanistan. The media pretended to report it. They didn’t. They swallowed the info given them by the military and then vomited it up as ”news” to the public. We were told about the offical name, Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb, called an MOAB and nicknamed Mother Of All Bombs, Nowhere could we read that this is a Weapon of Mass Destruction called a WMD and could be nicknamed a Weapon of a Merciless Devil. This 10-ton monster bomb can produce a crater three kilometers wide on flat territory. It can wipe out most medium sized towns, making rubble of all the schools and charred flesh bits of all the kids.

The white-collar terrorists responsible for the bomb and its use have spoken explicitly about its usefulness for creating terror. Who could disagree? Merely thinking of a bomb like this going off in my town terrorizes me.

No country is going to sanction the USA for using such a WMD. We are not going to see the UN protesting. There’ll be no war on white-collar terrorism. And don’t expect a word about this in the well-filled churches celebrating the resurrection of a man who is said to have died for our sins. Judging by the sins of the sinners in today’s world, what are we to say to claims that the man died in vain?

The Illusion of Confusion

WildRust1030224

Confusion
—extreme uncertainty—
embraces the citizens.
Fear oozes
—sweet, sticky and troublesome—
from their knowledge without understanding
hardening to spikes
puncturing the veneer
of a reality without context,
law without justice,
pride without integrity
and beauty with harmony.

Confusion
saturates their existence.
Their longing limps with bent back
but clutches a belief
that continues to glow
despite the cold,
the darkness
and the lack of spiritual fuel.

The confusion is an illusion.
The winners of the money-oriented way of life
spread the confusion
to blind the vision
of a people-oriented way of life.
It’s as simple as that.
Ain’t nothing confusing about it.

We
the people, humans and citizens
must start to build
a peaceful, harmonious and just
people-oriented way of life
for everyone
or perish
in the swamp of confusion
created by
the greed-diseased winners
of the money-oriented way of life.
Ain’t nothing confusing about it.
