The Police State

The question is not whether we will have a police state but rather how do we go about dismantling the police state we now have got. I thought this was a fairly radical position and would be a fire breathing sort of blog post.  But it seems I am a step or two behind.  It was easy to find videos on YouTube to support my thesis.

This one, for example, puts it out there in simple language and orderly reasoning. And this fellow made this video in 2012.  Indeed we are boiling frogs!

Why Everybody Loses With TPP



N
ow that corporations have defined their long term goals, we are all in trouble.  The simple reason being that corporations want to dominate all governments everywhere.  That is, Capitalism has always wanted to dominate the world and can't exist or co-exist with Communism or even Socialism.  It is like rabid dogs they will not stop.  Especially now that they can sniff victory in the air what with Obama pushing hard for its passage and insisting that nobody read what is in it until it has passed Congress.  We know that none of it does Americans any good.  Indeed, the substance of the TPP seems to be Wiener Take All!

They foresee a world where corporations, like say, Monsanto, Dow Chemical, Dupont, GE, Halliburton, you name any corporation whatever size  -- they can sue your local state county or city or neighborhood laws or even rules.  They will have absolute power.  The Corporations now seek to dominate world government forever with nary a word of dissent because after all the treaty calls for corporations to sue any government that they deem impeding in any way, their profit or even their potential profit.

This is a masterbatory fantasy cooked up either in ALEC or in a backroom somewhere.  I almost wrote a "Back Alley" somewhere, as it has that low, brutish sort of mentality behind it.

And the scary thing is, as I say, now that they know what they really want, and verbalized it, put it into a treaty,  they will never quit trying to insert their greed based manipulations, wishes and deadly desires into every bill that comes into Congress.

*   *   *

So my question is why is Obama pushing this?  Why is he persecuting Elizabeth Warren when she tries to talk some sense into him?

Why has Barack Obama become a treasonous president ready to deliver America to the corporate thugs?  Either there is a lot of money behind it for him, or else they have promised that if it does not pass he along with his wife and children will be assassinated.  Oh, yes!  That is the way capitalism works.  The corporations really are that vile.  Look at Comcast, for example.

 I voted for Obama.

Twice.

I am more disappointed than I can say.  I hated the Tea Party for their unreasoning hatred of Obama.  I thought they were wrong.

They were right!

Barry you're a liar and a fraud.

Here are 2 good, quick discussions on video by people who know what they are talking about.

German Bankers and The Greek People R US



R
ight wingers bite their nails these days.  If they do not bite their nails they are not at all aware of the reality of the fragility of their position.  But most do know they are in trouble.  That is why the Koch brothers are now spending billions on the 2016 elections.

They are afraid for their very lives.

They fear the mainstream of the voting public will do what the Greek people did.  The Greeks nationalized the wealth of the elites in order to pay off the German banks.

For their part, the Germans of course want the Greeks under their thumb.  They want the Greek people to live in AUSTERITY because that is the kind of harsh, limited and oppressed existence German bankers think everybody ought to live in.  Except themselves, of course.  German bankers sincerely believe that they and they alone should live in unspeakable luxury while the rest of the world lives on its knees.



So we can see that Angela Merkel and many of her German people actually learned nothing of humanity or charity, or even decency as a result of losing WWII.   Hitler's corrupt Nazi dreams of Aryans ruling the world still survive under the surface of order and humility.  If ever the will of a people were encapsulated in a metaphor, the German bankers are that metaphor.  Despite the fact that in 1953 Germany begged and howled that they could not pay their debts and the Allies would have to cut the debt by 50% and more, which the Allies did;  they now have the audacity to turn around and say to the Greek people that no quarter will be given and this debt must be paid in full.  And schnell!

That is a Hell of a lot of audacity!  That is not mere AUDACITY!  That is a form of Tyranny.

Tyranny is that form of government which seeks to control everything everyone does, says or even thinks.

Tyranny is that which must be destroyed.  And historically -- tyrants are losers.



The Greeks are smart.

Especially given that, in 1953, the Germans were heavily in debt for WWII on which they spent very heavily and still they lost.  They owed huge amounts to France, Russia and the USA.  And this is the part where Germany shows how ugly it truly is -- even today:  But the problem is not necessarily even the bankers.  It is the capitalist system.  Though capitalism is now on the wane.  Capitalism is worn out.

Rotten.

My own political system of choice is Democratic Socialism.  Socialism is the corrective for the excesses of capitalism.  The medicine, if you will.

I will close with an insight I found on the Internet:

A criminal is a person with predatory instincts 
but without the funds to form a corporation.

The Swing Of The Pendulum




For more than 3 decades the corporations have held the workers in their thrall; demanding that they work overtime without commensurate pay; often without pay at all; insisting that they come in on Saturdays and often, Sundays.  Workers have responded with all the timidity of slaves eager to please their masters.  Anything to keep their jobs from going overseas.  And all too frequently the jobs went off to Asia or to privatized prisons anyway.

But every era comes to an end -- even as its antithesis begins.

Sir Isaac Newton discovered that the universe obeys certain laws: According to his Third Law of Motion, every action has an equal and opposite reaction.  Every pendulum swings both ways -- and the greater the arc it describes in one direction the harder and farther it will go in the other.

This is not just my opinion.

It's a law of physics.

Physics is a verifiable way of describing how the Universe works.  One thing you'll notice about the Laws of the Universe is that most of the laws work from the most gigantic events, the macroscopic level -- all the way down to the microscopic level.  Even vast galaxies will obey these laws; and so it goes all the way down to the smallest atom within your being.  Alchemists knew this principle in these words:

As above, so below.

Once the iron ball of fate begins to slow in one direction and starts its fall back to center and beyond -- nothing in this world short of an act of God, or the Universe itself, or war, can stop it or even slow it down.  Quite the contrary, it begins to gather force slowly and then accelerates, going even farther than it has ever gone.

Mathematically, it looks like this:  F = mv 

And if we go beyond the Newtonian Clockwork Universe, to the Einsteinian Universe, we find other Laws at work.  For example, we discover Heisenberg's Principle of Uncertainty, whereby it seems that matter itself acts one way when we observe it, and quite another when we look away.

*    *    *

So what we have now is gross corruption in the Executive branch, a president who sold his soul to Wall Street and they have come to collect.  The Legislative branch: both houses of Congress who despite the shrillness of the American people's protests have voted to FAST TRACK the worst piece of trade agreement ever conceived in the mind of man. Finally, there is malfeasance and misconduct, in the courts of the Justice system from the highest court in the land down to the lowest.  The Department Of Justice is now so corrupt that murderers walk free; and people are sent up the river to do hard time for smoking a weed.  A weed which many cultures, especially indigenous cultures, have valued over millennia for its recreational and medicinal properties. Indeed the courts have reached so abysmal a mockery of Justice that they have begun to send people to jail for no other thing than being poor.

You can go to jail for speaking truth.

*    *    *

But the pendulum has begun to reverse, inexorably, its direction.  Who knows what the global cultures will look like in say, twenty years.  But we do know that the plutocrats and the oligarchic families will no longer be in charge.  The rich will be on the run in ways which cannot even be imagined now.

The Republican Congress



In laying out their plan to slash funding for worthy social programs, i. e. programs which are deemed by the majority of responsible persons, most importantly by persons expert in the Social Sciences, to be of immeasurable benefit to society,  the Republicans in Congress have once again torn the pact between government and the governed.  The Social Contract.  This means they recognize only the authority of the monied.  Unfortunately, the people of America will not fight back because although they are not all as extreme in their weakness of mind, they nevertheless to worship at the alter of Authoritarianism nearly as much as the mentally incapable Republican leadership.

What is odd is that when you question authority you find that it cannot offer convincing argument to justify its existence.  Other than that Authority justifies its existence by saying because "this is the way that it is."  Or else because it has always been this way, and you need somebody to boss you around.  Because man is inherently bad and you need somebody to keep you on the straight and narrow.

This is, of course, pure hogwash.

Of course, the GOP consists of nothing but Submissive Authoritarians.  That to a large extent explains the inordinate popularity of such pieces of crap as Atlas Shrugged, with its cardboard characters who live one dimensional lives, and happens to be one of the worst piece of literary garbage ever written.  The author, Ayn Rand, was an authoritarian of huge proportions. Nor did she live by the principles she herself espoused. After complaining about the collective, trashing any gathering of persons   Submissives are easy to discern as they tend always to fight tooth and nail against any perceived criticism of their near-deified authoritarian boss.  And the other gem, 50 Shades of Gray.  The value of Fifty Shades book is how clearly it shows how all politics begins in the bedroom.  It also explains the enchantment of the right with George W. Bush.  They worshiped ol' lonesome George W.  The reason for the hyper-worshipful attitudes of millions of right wingnuts, of George W Bush was that he is not a true Submissive Authoritarian.  He is what the Submissives spend a lifetime searching for:  A Dominant or Dom, to use the language of the Submissive, or as we know them, the Mind Slaves.  These are people who cannot exist without serving a master, the more brutal, the more worshipful.

This perverted mindset begins with the abuse of children.  Usually by parents -- to start with -- the perfect example being the members of The Westboro Baptist Church.  Records clearly show that the children were hideously beaten most often with a leather strap by their own father.  And the beatings began at an early age and continued into later teen years.  while I would not suggest that all authoritarians are survivors of childhood abuse, I would say that a majority of them are.    




But what we are talking about is utter abandonment of the Republicans of caring for the welfare of the people.  This reckless abandonment began decades ago.

Q and A

Andy Warhol began by asking himself: "What do I want?"  The answer was money.  He made a painting of dollar bills.  He gave us a new perception of reality, or, I should say, apparent reality.  Andy made money hand over fist.  Buckets of money.

ANDY once asked me to star in his movie.

I said No.  I knew that I was not ready.

I ask myself, "What do I want?"  Of course I want money.  But Warhol was the first to make the quest for money into art.

I want so much more than mere money.

I want to know "Who Am I?"

And of course the answer is contained in the question:

I AM

I am the pack of cigarettes on the desk before me.  I am the computer.  I am the veils lifting from my consciousness.  I am the brilliance beyond.the void.  I am the silence of the void.

I AM the question.

I AM the answer.

I am the light. I am the dark.

I AM not kidding.

I AM speechless.

I AM the silence.

I AM the Song.

I AM the breath.

I AM everything that is not.

I AM the beginning of the universe.

I AM the end of the universe.

I AM GRACE.

I AM SPACE..

I AM AWAKE.

My Xmas Wish

The party that won did not really win, except through deceit.  Yet the the pundits keep chastising the GOP as if they were a beloved family member who simply erred but as soon as they see the light all will be well.

I beg to differ.

The GOP has erred too many times to the detriment of humanity.  Over and over they believe they have outsmarted the rest of us.  This time gerrymandering, vote suppressing and the like, cannot go unnoticed. Like recalcitrant cons, they cannot be taken back in.  Not without damage to not only humanity, and the rest of the species on earth.

They are poison to the planet as a whole.

The Democrats are not much better but they win by a tiny margin.

Climate Change, no let's call it what it is: Global Warming, is all the fault of the profiteering establishment. They are holding my family -- my loved ones hostage.  And even if we give in to their obscene demands we still lose just by having such monsters around.  What are their demands?  Cutting taxes for the rich.  And raising taxes on the poor, instead.  And they ask us to believe their balderdash that Trickle down economics might actually work.  It has never worked.  And it never will.

They demand that we not take care of the poor either financially or through health programs.  Paul Ryan wants to give old people $1,500 dollar vouchers to take care of all their health problems.  And that includes dental.

Paul Ryan needs to be guillotined.  His rotten head severed from his body.  Same with Mitch McConnell.  And John Boner, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Phil Gramm, the list is long but those are on the short list.

Conservatives should be gotten rid of altogether.

Removed from the planet.

They are not simply sweet people who made a series of blunders.  They are absolutely certain they are right.
Convinced that their way is the only way.

Well, no more.

I would like them all shot.  Or better yet -- their heads lopped off.

There is a psychological principle, known as the Dunning-Kruger Effect, that says that really stupid, offensive people inevitably overestimate their skill level.  They give themselves away owing to the character flaw of being louder than the rest of us.  They tend to be lewd, crude and ridiculous.  Along with being resolutely obstinate due to the fact that they believe themselves to be a hundred percent right about their position.  As a corollary, gifted people, people with something real to offer, tend to be uncertain, equivocal, full of doubt, quiet about their achievements, truly modest folk.  They truly feel that what they can so easily do is merely something which anybody can do.  

Thus we can see who is not needed in civilization.  The loud ones; those who are absolutely certain of their position however foul it may be in the eyes of the intelligent, are the ones who need to be removed immediately.

Those who most crave positions of power, for example, are the very people who must not ever be allowed to be near such position of power.  The same with money.  Take the bankers out behind the barn and shoot them.  The greater the love of money the sooner they get shot.

But take them back.  No, I don't think so.  It's too late for that.

I am not proposing WAR!

What I am proposing is that a very quiet underground, loosely connected, plan carefully, and simply kill certain offenders off.  And all on the same night.  Then they all go to the airports to get on private planes and be flown to a lovely beach somewhere to live happily ever after.

And yet even as I write this I begin to understand that these tiresome noisy folk are merely the stooges for something far more sinister and destructive: The men and women who are truly evil.  The Satanists, the Illuminati, who tiptoe behind the scenes -- pushing and pulling; eagerly buying off this senator and that congressman.

We must organize.

We must make lists.

Who do we kill off first?

I must stop here.  After all.  This is just a revenge fantasy.  

But if Jesus really loved me... hmm...
