Everybody Must Get ... Straight!
The global condition
can at any time be likened to the situation on the sinking Titanic
with its crew re-arranging deck chairs and throw pillows as the ship
continues to submerge. This analogy may not quite fit the present
status of the global center, the USA. Here, the situation at a
mental health crisis center under a full moon while suffering a
shortage of powerful tranquilizers might seem pleasant by
comparison. As always under profit and loss economics, increasing
numbers face growing hardship bordering on absolute disaster while
some enjoy ever more lavish splendor with their servant class living
in relative if temporary comfort.
Just another day at
The imperial subjects in the rest of
the world suffer far more with the austerity religion of
fundamentalist capital turning Europe into a snake pit of material
inequality. Things are much worse in the Middle East with savagery
increasing in Syria as hypocritical clucking from those who are
behind the mass murder induces mass nausea among those still spared
from the descent into mass idiocy. Danger of a wider conflict
increases as “the west” – the USA and Israel – bring a dangerous
situation threatening a world war to a breaking point with behaviors
that would have an individual put in a strait jacket, heavily
sedated and placed under 24 hour watch in a padded cell.
always, a fiend dictator-murderer-tyrant-genocidal-satanic monster
is identified as the cause of everything that is wrong, and as
always, this is a gross simplification and often a total lie, even
when the dictators or tyrants really are awful people presiding over
worse regimes. Individuals always loom larger than systems, whether
the problems are an unemployed worker who is told she needs therapy
to improve her unmarketable neurotic tendencies, or the problem is a
CEO or head of state who is made to seem a single-handed creator of
misery who needs to be terminated to make everything right while an
entrenched corporate bureaucracy of state is invisible, existing in
a social vacuum.
In this environment switching from ruling
by AI (artificial intelligence) to dominating with SI (superficial
intelligence) could pass without anyone noticing. Apparently it has.
Recent signs of hysterical hypocrisy continue a historic trend
but increase in number and seriousness. Israel conducts attacks on
Syria and the international community – the USA, Israel and a couple
of islands in the pacific – yawns. Syria is alleged to have used
chemical weapons, the charges coming from a group less trustworthy
than wall street banks, and the shrieks and screams from the same
minority of ruling jackals drown out the cries of hunger and pain
emanating from those who suffer all day, every day, at the ravages
of a system that allows a minority to dress up in finery for
temporary visits to the opera house while a near majority wears
their reject rags as it moves permanently into the poor house.
The U.S, military suffers an out break of rape and suicide while tv
ads implore more youth to seek a career in the exciting field of
killing foreigners, raping women compatriots and then killing
themselves at contemplation of what a sordid immoral mess their
lives have become.
At the rate things are going the
legalization of marijuana won’t come soon enough to bring some
much-needed relief. Meanwhile, the increased strains and pressures
creating more common mental cases who murder or blow up their
neighbors are a deeper threat among the supposed leaders and
decision makers who not only threaten a family, co-workers or
neighbors by totally flipping out, but all of society and maybe the
world. These borderline certifiable loonies aren’t funny in that
they have or remotely exercise control of nuclear weapons.
Israel has several hundred nukes which everybody knows about but no
one is to speak of (because, you know, the holocaust and three,
four, five or six thousand years of extermination policies that make
you wonder how anyJews at all are left), is run by a group dementia
extending to the US government, which has thousands more nukes and
is the only nation ever to have used them to slaughter tens of
thousands of humans at a time. You know, democracy, higher form of
civilization, western Judeo-Christian morality and stuff like that?
This is a situation that calls for democratic control to be
exercised quickly, but when such reality threatens to exist anywhere
it is quickly attacked – see Venezuela - by the alleged leaders of
that international democratic community which is killing and
suppressing more people than past fascist tyrants could ever have
hoped – assuming they did – to slaughter.
may not be a powerful enough tranquilizer for this mob that would be
a bunch of laughable buffoons if they weren’t such a deadly menace
to the future of all humanity and not just one nation. Getting them
stoned won’t help, and all of us getting stoned will be worse. We
can party after we deal with the crisis but until then, stay
straight, maintain vigilance and take democratic action to transform
reality. And work faster.
