A Karmic Proxy For The Coming Wholesale Collapse Of Hierarchical Institutions Of The Ego (Control)? Editor-In-Chief Of World’s Best Known Medical Journal - Lancet - States That Half Of All The Published Scientific Literature Is Bullshit

Title link here

“Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing God’s service when it is violating all his laws.” – John Adams
 
I suspect its far more than half of published papers being false or junk science or worse.   I noted the exponential growth of scientific research retractions some years ago and there are actually countless obscene stories out there of people submitting absolutely ludicrous scientific papers to see if they can get past editors in many journals.  And they are.   Its just not science that is pushing a delusional viewpoint.  And let’s be real.   That’s what this is.   Delusion.   When the majority of scientific research is a lie or false in some major way, then the scientific community is suffering from mass delusions.  It’s useless to point out that is was predictable but it certainly was.  And so is what comes next.

By the way, it’s not just science that is delusional.   Now the institutionalized, political bureaucrats in California, obviously with the help of their institutionalized, industrial food backers, and pliant stooge academics in institutionalized, corporate-funded education, want to tax organic food to decrease demand for healthy food in order to solve the institutionalization-driven drought crisis.   Modern society has reached the point where institutionalization is universally complete.  And that means the massive consequences of institutionalizing power now creates magnitudes more unintended consequences than its intended actions.   What comes next is the self-created crisis as a result of the ignorance created by institutionalization.   One thing the world isn’t short of is bullshit (Or delusions, deceits, lies, ignorance, etc if you prefer).   Institutionalization creates endless streams of it with their self-appointed, incompetent experts using plenty of charts, rationalizations and junk science to back it up.   Literally just about everything in this world is institutionalized and that means any social meme, social value, news story or political talking point that reaches the mainstream should be viewed dubiously or with outright skepticism as to its accuracy because, as Lancet points out, odds are it may be well-spoken bullshit. If you can't trust science any more, do you actually believe you can trust an ignorant politician or corporate bureaucrat trying to institutionalize it for their own self-interested intent of control?

A major theme that is very unique to this blog is that we are going to witness the collapse of large swaths of scientific rationalism or the basis of much of modern science.   (And a wholesale failure of institutions of the ego or hierarchical, class-based institutions of all types around the world.)   A key component to that failure has been the every-increasing institutionalization of science.  The ego and/or evil seeks to organize through hierarchical, institutionalized constructs that serve its intent of control while at the same time subverting discovery and truth.  (The will and intent of the universe.)   Institutionalization and resultant institutionalized violence (violence is the necessary and intentional offspring of institutionalization) are THE major contributors to all of the crises we see around the world.   Every example of institutionalization today is a form of violence and all of those institutions are at war with humanity.   That includes science.   Additionally, every military war has been the result of institutionalization.   Even if institutions as we have come to see them weren’t recognizable in those wars, per se.   I’ll share more on this soon enough.   But the American Revolutionary War was a war against the institutionalized violence of the British state. (The monarchy and its various state institutions of control, British corporations, British standing armies, British private banks, British state-controlled money, etc.)   The American Civil War was a war between the institutionalization of the American south, primarily outright slavery and its various supporting class-based social and political institutions, versus the institutionalization of the American north, wage slavery or class-based, corporate capitalist institutionalization and the political institutions that propped them up.

In many regards institutionalized science has already collapsed.   That is exactly what this Lancet link above is exposing.   We just haven’t witnessed the outcome of this collapse as of yet for the very reason that science has become so institutionalized.   What I mean by that is the reality of that collapse has not yet trickled through these systems of control.  That’s because the regular feedback loop of personal behavior, responsibility and self-correcting actions & behavior is subverted through institutionalization and, is instead replaced by institutional violence which is used to subvert what would normally be self-correcting, natural course corrections.   Many other forms of institutionalization have also already collapsed but they too have yet to experience the consequences of those failures yet.    That is because violence is being used to prop up those failures and those failed institutions.   We live in a world of unprecedented institutionalized violence but you have to understand what violence is to recognize it.   It’s not someone beating you over the head with a hammer.   It’s someone beating you over the head with beliefs, propaganda, lies, self-deceit and other forms of the ego’s intent of emotional and spiritual control.

Money is another institution that has already failed on a mass scale.  Corporate capitalism has already failed on a mass scale.   Political parties have already failed on a mass scale.  The welfare state has already failed on a mass scale.   The war state has already failed on a mass scale.   Industrial food monopolies have already failed on a mass scale.   State-controlled academia has already failed on a mass scale.  Science has already failed on a mass scale.   State empire has already failed on a mass scale.   All of which are being propped up by state violence.   An overarching and very unique theme on here is that we are likely to witness wholesale failures of institutions of the ego or hierarchical, class-based institutions of control – corporations, academics, politics, the military-industrial complex, science, capitalism, communism, the state itself and on and on.  Democracy, republicanism, natural rights, spirituality, individual empowerment and the like, can only survive through a world of human equality.  All of these institutions of the ego subvert equality, discovery, Truth of our own Divinity and the intents of the universe on a massive, unprecedented scale.   
Interestingly re the last paragraph, I just read that someone by the name of Ian Bremmer, who is part of the institutionalized establishment bureaucracy and a supposed foreign policy expert, literally just released a book titled Superpower where he surmises that the U.S. empire is in for a long and glorious reign.   At least that's my understanding since I would never read institutionalized, ignorant drivel.   And there are ample numbers of institutionalized bureaucrats, who are subconsciously looking for confirmation bias of their own ignorance, who are lapping this book up.   I consider this a sign of the times and an ignorance-driven contrary indicator to reality.  That is, the corporate empire has already failed and its institutionalization simply has not yet felt the repercussions and experienced the outcomes to that failure because it is so violenty trying to maintain itself.     
The Roman Empire or Soviet Union didn’t collapse at their peak.   No, they collapsed at their  peak grabs for power and control by institutionalization but not at their peak of wealth and prosperity.  They were both in substantial decline through many institutionalized failures well before their collapse.  We see countless examples of these institutionalized failures in existence today.   Not just in the U.S. either.   It has been a topic of discussion many times on here that in the United States modern corporate capitalist society and many of its institutions have been crumbling for decades.   But the “apparent” power of the state, corporations, higher education, banks, science and whatnot and their grip on humanity seems all-powerful at this very moment.  But the underlying control structures are already experiencing massive failure.   It is this current state of failure that has caused institutions to grab for even more authority to maintain the endless contradictions necessary to maintain their power.    The bureaucrats who maintain these control systems generally have no idea what is going on.   That is, the status quo is finished and we are watching institutionalized systems of control in crisis and terminal failure all across the world.

The number of scientific research retractions and outright published junk science is palpable.   But those doing and publishing this research delude themselves into actually believing the massive junk they perpetuate for their own self-interested reasons. (ego)  It’s the same ignorance that would write a book titled Superpower right before a change in trend.   Or ignorance that would write a book titled The World is Flat exactly at the apex of corporate power and at the exact time humanity was awakening to the fact that the world is not flat.  Or ignorance that would state that the world is experiencing unprecedented peace.   Statements of institutionalized ignorance all highlighted on here. 

The drive behind this is the institutionalization of science that has resulted in a need to publish more and more bullshit to maintain "scientist's" own positions of relevance (class, hierarchy and self-interest).   The institutionalized profit motive of corporate capitalism, the military-industrial complex and the corporate state are the mechanisms through which this publishing and attempts at maintaining relevance and status are most easily accomplished.  In other words, I maintain my own artificial place at the table of class and privilege by publishing more and more dubious nonsense to maintain my own self-interested position and the mechanism through which I do this is the personal profit motive often aligned with the profit motive of corporations and the state.  ie,  Dubious and often outright unethical corporate, military and state-funded grants and research projects.   There’s a pony in there somewhere and if you understand institutionalization and its evil and pathological intents, then you understand how this ego-driven behavior applies not just to science but all institutionalization.

In this nation, (but clearly at play globally) the Democrats cling to the institutionalization of state power.   The Republicans cling to the institutionalization of corporate power.   The corporate executives cling to the institutionalization of their own power.   Academics cling to the institutionalized power of higher learning.   Science clings to its institutionalized power of science.   The media clings to institutionalized journalism and news.   The military-industrial complex clings to the institutionalized power of standing armies.   And they all cling to the institutionalization to the power of money.  All for their own self-interested intent of control.    What I’m saying is they all cling to their own form of institutionalized, hierarchical religion that is enforced through the state.   I could go on and on and on.   But the point is they all cling to the illusory power of class and hierarchy created to benefit the self or the ego and that act of clinging to these institutions is keeping humanity enslaved to institutionalized violence.    They are all headed for massive crisis as that state-enforced, institutionalized control unwinds as this unwinding is the only way humanity and all life can reconnect with the universe, each other and all life.  

On a final note, when the state or institutionalization of any kind becomes entangled in creating society and social values as has really codified in the last 100 or so years, and has intensified in the last three or four decades, we end up with an incredibly dystopian society.    Society and the state's drive towards institutionalization for its own self-interest are at opposite ends of the spectrum.   When they converge, invariably we get the mass institutionalized violence that is so glaringly obvious around the world today.   As humanity continues its awakening, what is coming next will reveal a completely new reality well beyond existing institutionalized mass delusions.  

It’s good to be the king.  Not much longer though.

A Memorial Day Post On The Dytopia Of Standing Armies, Corporate Power And The State

There certainly is a reality that as long as pathology, especially organized pathology in the form of the state, exists in this world, defensive force is necessary.  And we should honor those who would only be deployed as a last desperate act of violence to protect humanity and freedom from that evil.   But this dynamic and how it is maintained and deployed clearly needs to be rethought.   The paradox of the existence of the state and its endless violence requiring permanent standing armies, which too are clearly anti-democratic control systems of violence, is a rather preposterous form of circular reasoning.   Free people do not wage war against each other.   Free people implies a free mind.   And a free mind is beyond the brainwashing, control and hatred for their brothers and sisters that is required to wage war.   The average “foot solder” has more in common with freedom fighters around the world, or those he is charge with killing, than he does with his authoritarian, anti-democratic leadership.

Make no mistake, standing armies are not a democratic institution and this was clearly in the forefront of the minds of our nation’s founders who dealt with decades of abuse of power and trampling on their natural rights by the British standing armies.   Standing armies are an authoritarian control structure where the rank and file are brainwashed into being told what to think rather than enjoying the freedom of how to think that is so necessary to democracy and a balanced mind capable of protecting democracy.   The first act an armed forces recruit goes through is propaganda and brainwashing to break them down and rebuild them into nonthinking automatons whose primary purpose is to murder, threaten, intimidate and control those that their authoritarian chain of command tells them to.  Are those people on the end of that violence actually their enemy?   Well, if a total stranger walked up to you and told you to kill another person because they were your enemy, would you do it?   Then why would anyone listen to a chain of command that is comprised of total strangers when they tell them to do it?     The answer is quite simple.   Brainwashing.  This is the same form of control that a psychopath uses.  That should be of no surprise because the state, and its invention of standing armies, is comprised of psychopaths in positions of power.   Almost without exception, when anyone of sound mind wakes up from this brainwashing, they deal with the lasting consequences.    The authoritarian chain of command, total strangers to those doing the killing, tell the foot soldier to murder another total stranger because authority told you he or she was your enemy.   And when those people wake up from that brainwashing, they deal with the lasting consequences of PTSD, depression, suicide, addiction, homelessness, inability to assimilate back into society or whatnot because of the evil placed inside of them by pathology.   In this nation, along with all of the other disposable classes of people, they are thrown to the curb to suffer a life not of their making.

Certainly there have been what some may argue are “just” wars.   I suspect the last just war was World War II.   Although World War II was clearly a war created by corporations, corporate capitalism and private bankers from Europe and the United States participating in the building of the Nazi German state.  So, in some regards, it was a war created by the pathology of the state that had to be cleaned up by humanity and the loss of 50 million lives.   There is ample evidence Vietnam, World War I, the Gulf Wars or whatnot were not just wars.   After World War II, the corporations, the military leadership and politicians (state actors) jointly decided that a state of permanent war with the world was to their self-interested benefit.   And so we have the National Security Act of 1947 and other later acts that places us at permanent war with the world.   In many regards, this was a major tipping point for corporate and state pathology in this nation.   Interestingly, while I am not an expert on religious prophecy, the book of Daniel talks about the last great empire or “beast” waging war against all of world.   Was what was written of in Biblical prophecy the Roman Empire as preterism postulates?   Or was it some future reality or just plain gibberish?    Well, what is the National Security Act of 1947 other than exactly committing the United States corporate capitalist empire into permanent war with the world?   The United States empire is at war with all of humanity including its own citizens.   Remember, these cycles of prophecy, violence and humanity rebelling against pathological, class-based evil have happened quite often throughout history.   That includes during the life and times of Jesus of Nazareth under the brutal, repressive, violent Roman Empire that was very, very similar to the mass state violence of today’s world.   Who knows.   Prophecy, violence and rebellion may be a cyclical karmic event unleashed by the universe.  

The United States is losing its ability to wage outright war very rapidly.  Sure it can man drones and reasonably small strike forces around the world.   But I seriously doubt it has an ability to wage a large scale, protracted campaign.   This is something I have written of for years could very well come to pass.  That is, the United States military machine could see mass desertions.   In many regards we are seeing this unfold before our very eyes.   The LA Times just penned an article that military-industrial complex is increasingly at odds with democracy.  Not only through the mood of the masses no longer falling prey to state war propaganda but the armed forces are having a hard time filling their quotas of willing stooges to fight their endless wars of aggression against the world.    Additionally, I have noted time and again that the American people are certainly not as “stupid” as politicians and our masters believe us to be.   That the average American can clearly articulate that crooks and liars in Washington that have destroyed our nation are THE problem facing our nation.   But the one area where we are brainwashed as a society is the military.    But the shine is coming off that dime.  We see a mass awakening to the state propaganda that our military is somehow an extension of our freedoms or our democracy.   It is anything but.   It is the oppressor of our own freedoms, economic determinism and liberties.   That brainwashing is now wearing off--   Military propaganda and brainwashing is being exposed throughout our society and Veterans waking up to the lies of the state.

This awakening is obviously a major driver behind the recent import of massive human labor into this nation.   Don’t kid yourself that our nation is not that dystopian.   There certainly are discussions being had in circles of political-corporate-military power that our corporate masters can’t find enough people who want to work for slave wages and that the military is concerned about being able to wage a war because quotas aren’t being filled and kids are too fat or don’t care to fight endless wars of corporate state aggression.  Corporate capitalism has always relied on cheap, often imported labor or even outright slavery be it to fill factories or their standing armies.  In 1776 the British armed forces were conscripted, paid mercenaries or had no other economic opportunity so they joined the armed forces.    How could the state afford to pay for those who were herded like cattle into anti-democratic, authoritarian standing armies?   Plunder.   Plunder of its citizens and plunder around the world by British corporations.  

George Bush famously remarked that we need immigrants to do the jobs Americans won’t.  That’s because so many jobs in this nation are subhuman, corporate-dominated forms of economic slavery.   And Joe Biden said we need these immigrants for our economy to grow.   One of those jobs Americans are less willing to do is fight the corporate state’s wars.   This massive immigration push most certainly has a military-industrial complex element.   Yes, the world is that dystopian.   In fact, something came across the headlines a few weeks ago that caught my eye.   A general remarked that American kids are too fat to fight.  When following the link to the organization he was fronting, it is called Mission Readiness:  Military Leaders for Kids.   How dystopian is that?   Military leaders for kids?   WTF?   Is our society so Orwellian that we now have outright propaganda by standing armies and the military-industrial complex to whip those fat little bastards into shape  so they can be exploited in the state’s favorite pastime; murder and mayhem? 

I have a better idea.  Let’s send the pathological class of state actors into battle to fight each other.   That way humanity can let these pathological elements dispose of each other rather than using us to do their dirty work to perpetuate their own egomaniacal delusions of power and control.

Gabriel’s Horn Heard Round The World

I thought I would make some comments regarding the eerie noises heard round the world in the last decade as the Daily Mail posted a story on said topic a few days ago.   And a link to a recent Youtube video capturing it very clearly here.   I decided to put up this post mainly because of past posts on the topic of institutionalized science and their theories of the universe.   There are quite a few proffered explanations for these sounds.   Temperature inversions in the atmosphere and electromagnetic discharging caused by solar system anomalies are two I have seen.   Neither really are proven.  But the latter has some appeal to me personally as it implies the possibility of an entirely new physical model of the universe.   To me it seems rather obvious that the institutionalized, mainstream physics view of the universe is utter bullshit; something I have noted on here quite a few times.   Mainstream science can’t account for 97% of the universe but they use a fudge factor.   Hahaha.  Or put another way, mainstream science can only get about 3% of their theory right and they fudge it, curve fit it or create rationalizations (ego which subverts the purity of science) for another 3,000% or so.   You want to talk about the ingrained hypocrisy of all people?  Well, here it is.   Those who chose science as their god mock religion for believing things that science cannot prove.   But, in actuality science itself can’t often prove its ass from a hole in the ground.   Now, that is pure hypocrisy.   But what is really disturbing about this great hypocrisy is that physicists spend upwards of hundreds of thousands of dollars to be indoctrinated into learning what isn’t even true.  And it makes their egos and their perceptions of who they are comparative to others swell substantially.   Now, what do you do with that?  I guess you put it in your pipe and smoke it.   Because we all are capable of being pretty much ridiculous with such glaring ignorance.       

Hey, I have a theory of the universe as well.   It’s made of marshmallow crème and I’m going to fudge that a few thousand percent as well to make my theory presentable.   Seriously, there are so many flaws that are used to ramrod new theories into existing institutionalized dogma that astrophysics and theories of the universe have become a f*cking joke.  And the only people who don’t know the joke is on them is the physics community itself that clings to these jokes as religious ideology.    This is extremely typical of hierarchical, class-based control systems or bureaucracies as written ad nauseam on here.  

While I certainly have no inside track on what reality truly is, I can see through bullshit, dogma and ego quite clearly.   Mostly because being human, I’m so good at creating all of them myself.   I’ve noted on here that I suspect all of these existing theories of the universe could collapse in the next few decades.  Scientific discovery after discovery is being made that challenges, if not completely refutes, institutionalized views of the universe.    So, in many regards the science has already failed.   But because it is institutionalized, it has not yet experienced the coming collapse in its junk theories.    This is just like institutionalized money, institutionalized political structures, institutionalized corporate power, etc. that too has already failed but has yet to experience the outcome of said institutionalization.  

What I find most interesting about all of this, is that astrophysicists are often revered as gods by society.  Well, just as all hierarchical, class-based systems are.   Or, more pointedly, made gods by people who outsource their thinking to society’s supposed, and might I add, self-appointed experts.  Now, nothing wrong with being an expert in something.   Something like making beer or building a bridge.   But these experts rely on hard science and proven, repeatable processes.    When I turn a light switch on, the power comes on every time.   When I follow a proven, repeatable process I can make beer.   What science has become across a wide modicum of subjects in today’s world is literally a joke.   True science is about discovery and truth.   It is not about institutionalization and protecting existing ideologies and the keepers of the faith who rabidly protect such institutionalization for their own self-interest aka ego.   In fact, institutionalization is a major, overarching theme on here that is a necessary precursor to coming collapse of institutions of the ego or institutions of control and the illusory power they have over humanity.   Much of institutionalized science fits this dynamic to a tee.  

Anyway, back to these unexplained or not well explained noises.   Many will appreciate the ancient prophecy of Gabriel’s horn ushering in the end of the world.   Is what we hear Gabriel’s horn or the 7 trumpets of Revelation?   Well, I tend to doubt it.  But life is cyclical and it certainly is very plausible that humans heard these types of sounds in the past and associated them with natural disasters or coming apocalyptic events.  And as a result they became prophecy.   If this is so, these would be events that obviously humanity would have had to survive to pass along such prophecy.   So, I’m not so certain we are all headed for extinction.   But, regardless this is some type of energy disturbance and that could mean the universe is telling us something about a change in trend.   Who knows.   Possibly something about that very energy being the basis for the destruction of institutionalized power that is being used to dominate, exploit and destroy the human experience.   Maybe the universe has had enough of class and hierarchy’s ego and we have reached a cyclical cleansing event needed for humanity to progress past the suppression and misery that these control constructs have created.  

Or maybe it’s just the universe whipping up a new batch of marshmallow crème.

Eating McDonald’s Rapidly Destroys The Natural Fauna Of The Human Gut

Title link here.

This story is highly disturbing.   And we can be completely certain this is not just a McDonald’s phenomenon.   This is representative of the chemically-laden, overly processed, artificial ingredients-driven, GMO tainted swill that defines the U.S. corporate food supply chain.    Just about everything in that corporate food chain is harmful to our health and the planet in one way or another.   And those artificially-created illnesses then feed the corporate-controlled medical industrial complex with a recurring stream of sick patients.   The more humanity reacquaints itself with the ancient knowledge of fermented and natural foods that are necessary to our health, the more we recognize that the wholesale corporate war on bacteria and getting dirty is a massive failure and must be reversed.  Because not only is that affecting our health, but that chemical war is destroying the massive beneficial microbe population in the soil and thus entire ecosystems.   Planting GMO foods and then dousing the soil and ecosystem will billions of pounds of pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals is not a technological advancement.   It is a dystopian devolution of life. 

Over the last decade I have written many times about how the mythical service or servant economy has exploded in this nation since the 1970s.   And that the amount of retail square footage per capita has swelled over 500%.  That if we see a return to trend we can expect to see retail space collapse 80+%.  That  number is even larger now given the post 2008 collapse economy has kept building retail space at a frenetic pace.   Nearly a decade ago I noted that Wal-mart was headed for the dung heap and I’ll show you why that is almost a certainty at some point.  The big box retailer is in serious trouble but they just don’t know it yet.  And so are places like McDonald’s.   I am very dubious many, if any of the massive fast-food chains will survive.

Everyone is now aware of the corporatization of our food supply.   And what that means.   When I was a kid, there were dozens of local individual butchers in the small towns dotting the landscape around my home.    There was a reason for that.   Farmers grew and locally-sold their own food without the involvement of corporate capitalism.   Now we have four or five massive, industrial butcher operations in this nation that control upwards of 90% of the meat processing.   The corporate efficiency business model of extreme Taylorism aka Scientific Corporate Management, has turned the Untied States into the Soviet Union or the British Empire with massive, centrally-planned, Humpty-Dumpty corporations propped up by state violence.   We are told this is necessary because of the size of our population.   This is a myth reminiscent of the central planners in the centrally-planned Soviet food production system that ultimately led to the Soviet Union’s collapse.   That is, it could not feed its people after years of poor harvests and a currency that was not convertible.  As noted on here many years ago, the Soviet Union did not collapse because of Ronald Reagan and trickle down economics.   It collapsed under its own contradictions.   There were 230 million Americans in 1980.   Yet local food production was still very much part of our economy.  The reality is we can achieve massive productive gains in food production on a local or regional, decentralized level.

McDonald’s and other massive chains are very much behind the industrialization of our food supply.   They need consistency and large suppliers who are able to achieve that consistency.   In effect, they are centralized bureaucracies who demand massive corporate food suppliers. Then we are fed the lies about why this is necessary because of our population.      This brings up another point.   The franchise business model is a very, very sinister business model that should be banned by democracy.    It simply extends the reach of bureaucracy and bureaucrats.   Franchises are renter capitalist business models owned by bureaucrats where making money from money is the strategy.   In order to own a McDonald’s one must have some large amount of wealth in cash.   The targeted franchise owner has no skill, love or talent at creating a food culture.   If they did, they wouldn’t be opening a McDonald’s relying on cheap labor, cheap, unhealthy food and large sums of capital to exploit humanity.   McDonald’s is looking for bureaucrats to own their restaurants.   Bureaucrats who will enforce their “sick” business model for the intent of making money.   Contrarily, many locally-owned or family restaurants rely on locally-grown food, or used to before that culture was obliterated.   And they rely on the higher power’s concept of craft or their love of food which they wish to share with others.   Peasant food or food created by local traditions, cultures and locally-available foods is a labor of love versus renter capitalist exploitation whose primary intent is profit that is the franchise business model.    Plus local food cultures reinvest their profits in the local communities.  McDonald’s and franchisees don’t live in these communities.   They suck up all of that local profit and put it in the pockets of corporate bureaucrats.

As I have noted in the past, if we back out all of the unsustainable, undemocratic and unhealthy or exploitative, predatory and victimizing businesses that don’t serve democracy but rather exploit humanity in one form or another, the S&P’s PE ratio of 21 all of a sudden becomes what?  31?  61?  101?  I’ll be talking more about this in the future including some very, very disturbing looks at what the true market valuations really are.   They are far, far higher than any time in capitalism’s history.    On that note, without those exploitative and unsustainable businesses, what exactly then becomes of the true unemployment rate that is already 25%?  30%? 50%?  Higher?   And what exactly then happens to future energy demands without all of these make-work jobs?   Does energy demand fall 10%?  30%?   More?   A substantial amount of the perceived growth of the U.S. economy over the last four decades is going to become extinct.  That is, the service or servant economy which is a class-based system that permanently turns those who work in that sector into the Walking Dead or endlessly working poor to serve the aristocratic class of the state.    And that means the power of the state, that is achieved through enslaving the population to artificial, mundane and unproductive corporate work, is in serious jeopardy.   The issue facing the state is not debt but employment, which is the method through which the state enslaves humanity to its power.

Monarch and Merchant Despots Agree - Fast Track The TPP And All Of Its Anti-Democratic, Unconstitutional, Economic Slavery Dealings

Obama’s smarmy extreme secrecy for the criminal TPP trade agreement. (Evil cannot survive in the light.)

Only two Republican Congresspersons have read the TPP and they don’t support it.

TPP’s international tribunals controlled by corporate lawyers would subvert the Constitution and the United States’ rule of law.

TPP faces Senate vote this week

Republicans push to save Obama trade deal

With a vote on Obama’s smarmy, anti-democratic, tyrannical TPP coming to vote in Congress this week, the glaring evil of the state has become so bald-faced and glaringly obvious that no one can deny reality.  When Congress isn’t even allowed to read the text of the agreement and it is only allowed to be read in secret boiler rooms, and yet congressional leadership from both parties (corporations) want to ram this down all congressperson’s throats, one cannot deny the pathological ego’s primary intent of control that pervades Washington’s tyrannical, despotic, anti-democratic culture.

“I do not believe that in the four administrations which have taken place, there has been a single instance of departure from good faith towards other nations. We may sometimes have mistaken our rights, or made an erroneous estimate of the actions of others, but no voluntary wrong can be imputed to us. In this respect England exhibits the most remarkable phenomenon in the universe in the contrast between the profligacy of its government and the probity of its citizens. And accordingly it is now exhibiting an example of the truth of the maxim that virtue & interest are inseparable. It ends, as might have been expected, in the ruin of its people, but this ruin will fall heaviest, as it ought to fall on that hereditary aristocracy which has for generations been preparing the catastrophe.   I hope we shall take warning from the example and crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country. Present me respectfully to Mrs. Logan and accept yourself my friendly and respectful salutations."  --Thomas Jefferson letter from November 1816.

The founding concepts of our nation have been completely obliterated by the state.    The state now glorifies that which many of our founders recognized as great evils and tyranny.   From the endless entangling alliances Jefferson spoke to eloquently of above to the rise of the aristocracy of monied corporations that bid defiance to our freedoms and laws to the criminal political parties that themselves are, in fact, monied corporations that only maintain their grip through the comingling of dirty money in authoritarian politics to the corrupt meme of free trade enforced upon humanity by a class of despotic economic masters.   The lying lies of endless liars (politicians and state actors) has eroded our freedoms over hundreds of years to where we have literally little true freedom left.   That erosion and the propaganda surrounding it has been so consistent and so pervasive that we have literally accepted our own enslavement without even a fight.   We embrace our own slavery through our own ignorance.   But the new Age of Enlightenment continues to expand human awareness.

Montesquieu was the most cited man in pre-Revolutionary War America for two reasons.   One, because of his work on the separation of powers that not only defines the executive, judicial and legislative branches of states, localities and the federal government, but also the separation of powers between states, localities and the federal government.  That matrix meant to throttle power has been completely obliterated.  And all of that obliteration started in a centralized, all-powerful, authoritarian bureaucracy in Washington DC.   The other reason was because Montesquieu is so famously quoted as stating that “governments should be set up so that no man should be afraid of another”.   The founders of this nation knew Montesquieu and his treatise The Spirit of the Laws very well.  Montesquieu believed that there were two forms of despotism for humanity to be aware of.   One was the state or as he noted monarchs, and the other was private economic interests or as he noted merchants.   Monarchs and merchants were the known basis of despotism and tyranny in 1776.  And they still are today in the corporate state.

It is important to understand the mindset of Revolutionary War times.   The colonists had been pushing back against the king’s greater and greater repression for decades.  That includes the monied aristocracy of British corporations and its private, for-profit banks.   This has been written out of history by corporate capitalism and the state.   Jefferson was very active in many of these rebellious efforts against the king’s tyrannies well before The Declaration of Independence.  Certainly no man is perfect, and we embrace their ideals rather than many of their contradictory behaviors.  Which, frankly, is the reason why there should be no authority in this world other than laws based on natural rights.   

There is ample evidence that Thomas Jefferson is one of only a few founders who really were interested in a radical new form of government.    His views were a major threat to many of the other founders.  As it pertains to fearing the despotism of Monarchs and Merchants, Jefferson resigned from George Washington’s presidential administration after numerous major disagreements with both Washington and Hamilton over many issues.   The most noted were Jefferson’s vehement rejection of economic and monetary policies of Alexander Hamilton, the Secretary of Treasury, that were supported by Washington.   Jefferson accused the Washington administration of trampling  all over the Constitution and giving the federal government the power of European monarchies.  In fact, it is noted that Hamilton remarked in so many words that that the Constitution was a worthless piece of paper.    Jefferson’s exact words were that Hamilton and Washington, in support of their economic and monetary policies, were “creating a monarchy”.   Now, one must appreciate how raw this was in a time when Montesquieu’s words on the despotism of monarchies was the basis of revolution sweeping Europe and the Americas.  And those revolutions were against the tyranny of both corporations and other forms of private economic interests propped up by the state and the state itself.   Just like todday.   Jefferson’s major disagreements with Washington and Hamilton were because both were supporting economic policies that concentrated power in Washington and in the class-based monied corporations or merchants who benefited from that concentration of political power.   Jefferson lost the war to Hamilton’s ideas of embracing the king’s monied corporations and private banks and we have finally reached the level of tyranny and oppression of monied corporations that Jefferson warned us of.   His prescient words ring more true than ever to lovers of liberty and democracy.    In many regards, we are living through a very similar time to 1776 and that is why these words ring so true today.

Let’s be honest with ourselves.   There is no doubt that in this nation we have a king.   There is really no true public service.   Any semblance of that has been obliterated over 200 years of ever-increasing power grabs by the state or monarchs and merchants.  We elect a monarch who arrogantly grants powers to merchants who then both use the force of the state to dictate to us the fate of our lives.   Again, all for the privileged few state actors or moochers and parasites.   As long as we serve the king and the state’s aristocracy of monied corporations, or monarchs and merchants, we may actually partake in the looting of the state and thus experience some of the wealth-stealing and plundering activities that it enforces.   This certainly didn’t start with Obama.   Nor Bush.   It has been this way for most of our nation’s history.   The only difference with history has been the state’s limited ability to project its authoritarian violence.   Today, that projection of violence and despotism of monarchs and merchants has reached the most dystopian levels imaginable.   

The life of a president in this nation is held with incredibly special status and rights.   Our king spends tens of millions of dollars vacationing on the public dime every year and is afforded massive deference, privilege and luxury that the masses he supposedly serves will never experience.   Most importantly, our king operates in secrecy and extends his power well beyond that of even King George in 1776.   Well beyond.   And, just like in a monarchy, Congress has abdicated its  duties on behalf of citizens to the king.    Our king wages war without any checks or balances, negotiates secret, smarmy and even criminal deals with merchants across a wide range of issues including health care “reform”, trade agreements, financial “reform”, waging war for merchant benefit and on and on.   Sure, if there is an outrage by the masses, our king sometimes backs off of the level of violence and control he uses to subjugate his slaves.   You know, just as King George did when the fear of retaliation by his subjects became just a little too worrisome to his own power.  But make no mistake, we have a king.  

Our egos like to tell ourselves stories about the good ole days but let’s be real with ourselves and dispose of the ego’s endless bullshit and self-deceit.   Outright human slavery and indentured servitude, corporate thugs hiring Pinkerton guards to murder workers demanding a living wage and a safe work environment, robber barons who bought up massive amounts of wealth while the people who worked for them literally slaved away to stay alive, company stores and company housing that stole back every ounce of the pittance wages stolen by robber barons and corporations in the first place,  two world wars and endless other wars of corporate capitalism and now permanent war against all of humanity.   It has always been that way since early losses of citizen power soon after the Revolutionary War.  It’s just now becoming so obvious because a control system of massive contradictions must use greater and greater violence in order for it to survive.   And that squeeze is now palpable.   It is going to continue to be ratcheted up until something breaks.   And, it certainly will break.   Whether it is a financial market or underlying economic market that starts the back end of this crisis is irrelevant.   It’s coming and there is nothing anyone can do to stop it.

Joe Biden and the Republican Party have already told us the reason why we are importing massive numbers of immigrants.   They already said the economy needs these immigrants.   Yes, they are being imported.   It’s for cheap labor and a new swell of soldiers needed by empire.   It has nothing to do with virtue or compassion.   The intent is exploitation and profit.  It’s the same reason every empire had porous borders and massive immigration.   Because that immigration served the state and the aristocracy as servants and warriors.  If the intent was virtue, then why doesn’t the United States spend a small pittance of the $4 trillion and counting wasted on Iraq trying to assist impoverished nations to build a democratic, self-sustaining infrastructure so that immigrants don’t need to abandon their families and communities to migrate to the United States?  The reason why $4 trillion was spent in Iraq, yet all of the U.S. money spend in places like South America are spent destabilizing nations, was for the benefit of our corporate masters.   The same migration is happening globally.   None of this is just a U.S. phenomena.   Humanity is  at war with the state.

All of the beliefs our masters have about themselves, that our masters have placed in our own minds and that we have victimized ourselves and others with are  collapsing.   Beliefs, which are really nothing more than control constructs of the mind created by the ego (Some may characterize the ego as evil, or the negative energy that resists the positive energy of our higher power or even Satan.  That’s for you to decide.) to keep us from seeing reality unfolding right before our very eyes are no longer working.   The ego is the great deceiver.  And corporate capitalism and the state, monarchs and merchants, rely exclusively on ego-created constructs for its deceptive control. (Money, profit, greed, vanity, power, class & hierarchy, propaganda, doublespeak, lies, etc)   The only difference today from other times in history is that the state has literally cornered every power imaginable.   With a finite amount of power in this world, it has become obtusely obvious that there is no power left for humanity.  That is, except our Divine power.   And that will be the downfall of this system.   That’s  because all of the ego’s control constructs and resultant perceptions of power are nothing more than an illusion.  Humanity is waking up from that illusion as all true power comes from within.

One reason why corporate rights are so sinisterly powerful and dystopian in this nation is probably paradoxically because of the Constitution.   When it is operating somewhat functionally, the Constitution grants unprecedented rights to people that really has few, if any true equals in our world.   So, with corporations having the rights of humans under our system, or the criminal concept of Corporate Personhood granted by the state, the Constitution creates a much more powerfully dystopian reality than is possible under a system of statutory corporate rights in a nation like, say Germany. 

What was a concern of the times in 1776 and during the early years of our Republic, by Jefferson in particular, has become a reality across all aspects of our society today.   Even simple things like equality and education being necessary for a republic to actually work.   Yet, corporate capitalism is a system of class that relies on keeping the masses in a state of fear or ignorance or both to survive.   Or constitutional review being a power that could be wielded by the states against federal tyranny or by Congress against judicial tyranny has become lost to an active Supreme Court legislating from the bench that has usurped the people’s power.   How many examples can we use to count the ways of  Montesquieu’s remarks that “governments should be set up so that no man should be afraid of another”?

No man afraid of another man?   Do we live in that type of society?  Does our government protect us from violence and fear?   Or does it perpetuate both?   We live in a very fear-driven society.   Everything socioeconomically operates on fear. (Violence)  We fear not being able to pay for basic necessities for our families most often controlled by corporations, we fear corporate power across so many aspects of our lives it is almost unfathomable including the violence used to force us into wage slavery, we fear the state in its endless desire to entrap us in any of its control schemes and on and on and on.   I bet if everyone actually stopped to think about every intent they had during a single week, that the number of times we do something out of subconscious fear-based conditioning  would be counted in the thousands of times.   And that is the key to how pathology creates a control system to dominate humanity.   It must keep humanity in a constant state of fear.  

Free trade and, in this case the TPP, more fear-driven propaganda memes created by monarchs and merchants, is pure bullshit.   Jefferson clearly and unequivocably noted that taxes should be raised through import tariffs.   This because most imports would be consumed by the rich.   And they could afford to pay the taxes.   How the worm has turned.   Now the monied aristocracy overconsumes endlessly anything and everything they can with nary a thought of paying an import tax.  Even Alexander Hamilton, for all of his failings of an aristocratic elite, wrote about the need for import taxes.    Yet Obama, Democrats and Republicans seek to extend the power of monarchs and merchants with more trade bills that are truly despotic when applied to Montesquieu’s enlightened treatise The Spirit of the Law and his concepts of government and fear.

I want to close with a few important remarks as it pertains to the Washington despots trying to ram another thuggery form of control down our throats in the form of free trade agreements.   It is important to appreciate that we live under a control system enforced by state violence.   And this economic control system will continue to apply greater and greater force necessary to deal with its many instabilities and contradictions that would otherwise send this system spiraling out of control.   In other words, monarchs and merchants using the force of the state is only going to become more and more tyrannical and despotic until something breaks.   Once you appreciate this, and the decades, if not the entire 20th century of greater and greater state force, one can gain a clearer perspective that all of these bullshit control constructs (laws, money, debt, authority, etc) that despotic monarchs and merchants are granting to themselves are going to unwind.   In other words, most recently Obamacare, financial reform, trade agreements, useless laws protecting politicians and corporations through spying and intrusion, etc are going to unwind.    And its unwinding is likely to be more powerful than anything any single person could ever imagine.   Nothing the state is doing today is going to last.   If the TPP passes Congress and goes into law, it will eventually be unwound or will collapse in some form or another.   It’s all an illusion created by their own intent to control.   Nothing is going to stand long-term.   But, this type of control and violence is what the system needs to maintain itself so until something breaks, monarchs and merchants will continue to apply greater and greater tyranny and force to the people of this world.  

And so it is with both Republicans and Democrats trying to pass one of the most criminal, odious, repressive and illegal bills in our nation’s history; the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  How do we know it’s criminal?   Because they won’t let us see it.   And that is behind this monarchy’s unprecedented secrecy.   Evil cannot survive in the light.

The cycle of volatility continues.
