Radical: Queen Of England A Loan Shark, Plutocratization Proceeds, Disinformation Blossoms

November 7, 2017

When people talk of “radicalization”, they think of “Alt-Right” and Jihadism. Thus they confuse the piece of bark they look at, its little worms squirming, with the disease which has made the forest die. Some, it’s true, are paid to entertain the confusion. Professors in the highest universities come out, and accuse low lives, be they “Jihadists” or “Alt-Right” of being bad. Instead of contemplating at the immense forest of radical corruption beyond, and above, which feeds those little worms. Thus Tariq Ramadan, a man who stealthily preached lethal violence against women, advised government all over, and enjoyed posts in a dozen universities, including Oxford, all the way to Japan. While French police kept in trust, the physical evidence of his rapes. 

Want radicalism? What is radical is that revered Queen Elizabeth II of England, head of countless states, has just been revealed to be a 99.9% loan shark (see Paradise Papers, just out). Using just the offices of one corrupt law firm, the owner of England had just hidden off shore, away from pesky taxes, around twenty million dollars… That’s just one account. I am sure the royal thief has more, let all the British kneel!

As I revealed as early as 2009, the Bush-Obama administration “fixed” the world economy by giving money, in humongous amounts to all their friends. Friends, they had, friends they made. Some of these friends were the likes of Saudi Prince Walid Bin Talal, grandson of Saudi Arabia’s founding king, Abdulaziz. Bin Talal is now incarcerated, with another 31 other plutocrats (and 10 princes) in Saudi Arabia.

This is a long story, which is just starting to unfold, part and parcel of what I am talking about here; the Clinton-Obama faction lost control of Saudi Arabia; the notoriously corrupt Al Talal was a dedicated attack dog against Trump. They had so much hubris, the ilk of yours truly could see what they were doing plainly: I wrote many essays, nothing seemed to have happened… Until now. Al Talal controlled Citigroup, so Obama gave it 60 billion dollars (it was presented at the time as a severe loss by the likes of the deliberatively naive New York Times, although appearances can be deceiving: secret arrangements were made; by March 2017, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Al Saud was back in control, for all to see, and the CEO of Citigroup came to beg. Clinton and Obama thought they had it made… Oops…

Aeon wants us to focus, instead on these epiphenomena, “Alt-Right” and Jihadism as two aspects of the same thing. Yes, they are, but not just for the reasons advanced in Aeon, however valid they may be. Contemplate: “Alt-Right or jihad? Unleashed by globalisation’s dark side and the collapse of communities, radical Islam and the alt-Right share a common cause.”

Yes, a common cause is fury at the encroaching plutocratization of the planet. And they are “not so different” as Aeon puts it, because they were installed by the same crowd of conspirators who control the worldwide media.

Radical Salafist Islam is a problem, indeed. However, it was initially entirely made up by some more sinister, much more radical forces which let it fester, or even encouraged it, as they had with many other forms of fascism prior. Those forces have most of the money, hence power, in the world: a few people control most of the world’s wealth, and they meet, and breathe, together, all the time. Please read the “Paradise Papers” which show the queen, the Kushners, the Wilbur Rosses, and Putin’s minions and relatives, among others, all splurging at the same through.

Common criminal. Such reciprocally self-admiring thugs have conditioned the Commons to love, and revere them. Just as sheep have been conditioned to love and obey those who sell them to the slaughterhouse, after shearing them for years.

Those satanic leaders who lead the planet to oblivion are the real radicals: They feed us poison, we, or at least the media they control, that is, nearly all the media, adore them in return (contemplate the maddeningly unjustified Obama, Elizabeth II, Putin, Justin Trudeau and Clinton cults) . And when they do not feed us literal poison. Not only, in a worldwide conspiracy, they feed us “Roundup”. They also feed these recently contrived poisons, Neonicotinoids, found in honey, worldwide, making all of us crazy, stupid, and forgetful like the bees themselves. Worse of all, they feed us, through their evil universities, poison of the highest most spiritual type (full disclosure: I got degrees from Paris, Stanford, Berkeley: I disapprove of them, because I know them, all too well). A violent Islamist such as Tariq Ramadan, a professional advocate of Salafism, teaches in no less than two departments in Oxford, instead of being in jail, after decades on French TV, as if he were the Prophet himself, preaching radical venom.

There are the radicals. A few disgruntled low lives acting up, like the Jihadists and the “Alt-Right“, not to say “Alt-Left“, are just consequences, mostly ornmental.

Plutocratization, in most instances we have among civilizations, take generations, sometimes centuries (it took 550 years for plutocratization to bring total loss of control of the Roman state; it took many centuries in the European Middle Ages, for plutocratization to bring serious civil, religious wars, all over). The US started to plutocratize around 1880 CE.

Catastrophe and loss of control, though, is typically sudden. The Trump administration just declared a 4.7 degree Celsius global temperature rise is possible by 2100. In other words, the apocalypse. No civilization can resist to that. That means a 70 meter sea level rise, guaranteed, and possible partial shut down of planetary oxygen.

Mainstream thinking, at the highest level, long abusive and demented, is squeezing us and the planet out of all and any juice: 

Not the thinking which shows up, when Obama smiles to every one as if they were the most beloved being he ever saw, but the thinking which is acted upon (when same Obama orders assassination in countries the US is not even at war with, just because he can).

“Alt-Right” is a buzzword. It’s not clear what that means. If one thinks Hillary Clinton is a crook and a danger to democracy, is one “Alt-Right”? Infuriatingly, it was too long the case, yes. Clinton would get $200,000 each time she opened her mouth to corrupt financiers, and Obama asks for $400,000 (even when talking to the official US historian). Now it turns out that Donna Brazile, head of the DNC, Democratic National Committee reveals in her memoirs even worse about how Clinton stole democracy from Sanders.

Does that make Donna Brazile is “Alt-Right”, because she dares to declare that she thought of replacing Clinton by Biden before the presidential election? Hundreds of thousands of Sanders supporters, and disappointed ex-Obama faithful, were labelled “Atl Right”, just for supporting common sense…. And democracy

Fascists and communists back in the 1920s and ’30s had full support from many plutocrats, especially in the Anglosphere. Roosevelt sided with Nazism against France, as early as 1934. Nazi Germany became a new far-West for US plutocrats, enabling them to evade Teddy Roosevelt’s anti-monopoly laws. The British signed an alliance with Hitler in 1935 (which grossly violated the Versailles treaty). It’s a testimony to crushing propaganda that these inconvenient facts sound like unbelievable fiction to the mystified masses, and those who pretend to lead them intellectually.

‘Cosmopolitan’ and ‘globalist’ values, now as in the 1930s, are a front for global plutocracy. The king of England in 1936 can be depicted as a Nazi. But who knows this? It was buried by crafty disinformation. The US recognized Vichy, an unconstitutional junta, before the Nazis did, and dutifully president F.D. Roosevelt sent his right hand man, four star admiral Leahy as ambassador.

Elizabeth II makes money (she has never enough) by secretly lending at 99.9% to the poorest people in the UK (see the “Paradise Papers”). Who cares? Accuse the little guys of thinking wrong, and being angry, instead! Let’s side with the powers that be! As Obama did, turning everything into gold for himself (Obama is a personal friend, I care for his soul…).

It’s not “absolutely important to live in so-called “democratic countries”, simply because they are not democratic at all. They are just pretending to be, and north Korea also use the label “Democratic” in its depiction. Barack Obama and all top US politicians are for sale (with the possible exception of Trump himself, because he is already so wealthy!)

Marine Le Pen’s hard-Right National Front and Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s hard-Left UNSUBMITTED France (France insoumise; “unbowed” is less faithful a translation) got half the vote. Both promise more referenda, and proportional parliamentary systems, so can be viewed as promising more democracy.

Those fighting for Jihad are the victim of a double interference. First, the enormous propaganda for Salafist Islam (I was educated in Islam, but it was not Salafist Islam; now, if one disagrees with the infamy of Salafist Islam, a number of paid violators, such as Tariq Ramadan, come to tell us we are racist… just because we are human!)

Salafist islam is profitable to oil men, Aramco, Wall Street, Saudi princes, and all those associated to them (Bush family), and “Muslim” dictatorships, all over, etc

The second factor is the increasing destitution and de-democratization.

Part of the pronblem with the “unmooring” of tradition is the failure of correct education, itself coming from a failure of proper research.

Take the case of France. Please consider Saint Louis (abject anti-Jew and obscene anti “non-believer), Louis XIV (abominable fanatic, throws 2 million Protestants out of France after torturing them with “dragons”, killing thousands, causing a world war, the war of the Spanish Succession), Napoleon (Hitler without the racism against the Jews, something he compensated for by enslaving colored individuals in the West indies). Those preliminaries to Hitler are still revered in the French history textbooks. In truth, Napoleon should carted off the Invalides (built by Louis XIV) and thrown into the Seine, after being condemned to “damnatio memoriam” (as the Romans had it.

So it is the mainstream thinking, at the highest level which has become abusive. The reason? Intellectuals are not free anymore, they are on stipends, anxious about their pathetic little careers.

***

Radical Islam is part and parcel, a tool and weapon, of a more general problem. The plutocratization of the world:

Nazism and Sovietism were also part of it. When an oligarchy (a few ruling) gets in power, it can only sustain itself by the most satanic, evil ways: that’s the plutocratic phenomenon, the greatest danger to any civilization. Taxation was invented to prevent the rise of wealth based oligarchies and their ripening in fully metastatic plutocracy. The West was affected twice by plutocratization: the first time, when the Roman Republic turned into a fascist empire and then a theocratic fascist empire where the “heretics” were executed (Theodosius decrees, 391 CE). The second mass plutocratization happened when the Carolingian system turned into the so-called “Feudal” order, and its attendant resurrection of the Inquisition (one the gifts of Theodosius).

We are in the age of the third plutocratization. The US Republic, whatever its defects, was no plutocracy: the first US billionaire was Carnegie, and he was notoriously equalitarian, advocating enormous taxes on the wealthy. The other Republic, France, was also equalitarian, although it was quickly intoxicated by Napoleon.   

The third plutocratization proceeds stealthily (as the preceding two did). Lenin used to chuckle that the capitalist would sell the rope to hang them with. But actually what US capitalists such as the Harriman brothers did was the exact opposite. They sold Lenin the rope to hang Lenin with. The US plutocrats sold Stalin massive oil offshore installations (Baku), and the oil was then given to the Nazis, so that they could invade France. Earlier, Texaco had given the Nazis Texas oil, and other US plutocrats provided equipment, so that the Nazis could destroy the Spanish Republic.

Meanwhile, said Nazis had an alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, while US oil men, financiers and plutocrats (including president Roosevelt) made an alliance with the Salafist Islam supported Saudi family. That was a recycling alliance: we, US plutocrats, get the oil, you, Saudi plutocrats, get the money, you, evil Arabian Princes, recycle the money on Wall Street and London, and you, Saudi monarchy, hold We The People of the Muslim countries down, with Radical Islam, the way Roman emperor Theodosius i did it, killing all the “heretics” you don’t like. So here we are.

As long as this is not understood, the foundations of this subject have not been understood.

Conclusion: We live in the world of big lies. Some will say:’Nothing new!’ However, what is new is that now common people have the means to examine and reveal, these lies. An example: decolonization. Decolonization should be written this way: “decolonization”. Much of it consisted in wild plutocratization, once the “colonial” administrations were removed: consider the fortunes made in France by plutocrats Pinaud, BHL, and even the guy who offered Macron a one million Euro apartment in Paris, when Macron was 24 years old, because an “Inspecteur des Finances” (there are only 5 a year in France, and they are supposed to be after the wealthiest…) had to live in style…

The corrupt web the planet is smothered by extends all over. Brexit, London, Putin, Assad, and some in Trump orbit are all in it. When Obama bent down to the floor, for his master, king Abdullah of Arabia, he had been told that was one of his masters of future financing of his obsequious self. He had been feeding dozens of billions of US money towards this sort of masters. Helas, Trump happened, and Trump detests the Abdullah faction…

Great Britain should be made into a Republic, because no people should be ruled by a loan shark. It’s not just for them, British, but for our own safety, worldwide. After all, these crooks helped bring Nazism, in a past they would like us to believe is irrelevant. (A second Brexit referendum should also be led, once some of the main Brexiters are in jail where they belong: see Special Prosecutor Mueller first indictments..)

All those preaching Radical Salafist Islam should be arrested (for hate crime propaganda). And so on. Tax evasion should be dismantled… for the really wealthy, and that starts with a worldwide, generalized CADASTRE of all properties (a revealing of all properties, real or not: who own what land and interests, in anything, whatsoever).

Don’t hold your breath yet. “Apocalypse” comes from the Old French and ecclesiastical Latin from Greek apokalupsis, from apokaluptein ‘uncover, reveal,’ from apo- ‘un-’ + kaluptein ‘to cover.’ Thus a general uncovering would be an apocalypse. For the radical crooks who exploit us, and the planet, to death. Those who brought us Fundamental Islamism are those who brought us Hitler. Not too many are paying attention that their descendants are in power.

However, if we don’t get this general revelation, this general apocalypse we can manage, we will get the other sort of apocalypse, as found in the Bible or Qur’an: the world all aflame. It will be the first time civilization collapses, worldwide, and the biosphere will, moreover, collapse with it. These, at the very least, are interesting times.

It was recently discovered that, when the Earth’s core sloshes, giant earthquakes soon follow. Here what we have, hopefully, is a giant sloshing of information previously deduced and guessed by the ilk of yours truly, but now available to all. Hopefully vast quakes will follow and shatter the establishment.

“Daughter’s AMBITION WAS TO BE A PROSTITUTE”

October 13, 2017

People are not just led politically by self-described “leaders” such as Obama. People are not just led emotionally by self-described “leaders” such as Obama. People are led psychologically, philosophically, neurologically by those “leaders”. People are also led by the whole galaxy of influence those leaders are supported by, and that they support in turn. Movie producers such as Harvey Weinstein, with their extremely fake vision of history, are crucial to the institution of the subjugated minds their rule depend upon. And what other sins did Weinstein institute? Objectifying women into sex devices, and imposing his will abjectly upon them, among other aspects of vigorous sexism. That made him popular with the abusing elite:

One of the pseudo-intellectuals who gravitate in the highest US “Democratic” circles, Harvey Weinstein wants all daughters to be prostitutes, and it turns out the top “Democrats” knew this very well, and played right along! Proof below! It gets better all the time! Past formal police accusations against Weinstein include four rapes. In spite of admission of sexual aggression (in the case of the Italian model, see below), to the New York police, years ago, Weinstein was left free to proceed, and the Obamas couldn’t have enough of him. 

One can tell who people are, by looking at whom they socialize with. The song “family” of the Rolling Stones is relevant to recent happenings in the highest reaches of the “Democratic” Party, finally revealed, for all to see.

California’s Napa and Sonoma valleys, in the northern San Francisco Bay Area are burning. The region on fire is 80 kilometers by 40 kilometers (50 X 25 miles). One hundred kilometers south, in the core of the San Francisco area, it has been hard to breathe, for five days. When we said the greenhouse was going to be a problem, that’s what we were talking about: expect devastating fires. All over. That’s how climate changes. Fast.

For years our great leaders have done nothing much, when much could be done (see Angela Merkel and her ridiculous “Energiewende“, energy change, which sees Germany emitting ever more CO2!). President Obama’s highest philosophical principle was, at least as he presented it in his “memoirs”, personal “navigation”. A distinguished lawyer visiting me this week, who knew Obama as a teenager, told me two days ago laughing in derision, that “Obama is busy turning anything he touches into gold”. Let’s teach that to the youth, we rats and roaches of the lowest gutters, much cheese to be had, by navigating well, all lights out!

The Harvey Weinstein scandal is growing (and it’s not just Weinstein, many pillars of the US establishment do just the same, rolling all over the law; after all, Obama admitted using cocaine in his memoirs: the law is for lesser beings! Amazon just fired the head of its studio, alleging sexual harassment against employees). Weinstein was a pillar of PC clamoring, and funding (see below where the Great Leader’s daughter found her first job!). All his best friends, including his wife, are distancing themselves from him. Best friends of Weinstein incorporate the entire upper establishment of the so-called Democratic Party. Clinton got millions from Weinstein.

Hillary Clinton Left, hilariously revealing that she can’t Get Her Hands Off Producer & suspected Sex Criminal Harvey Weinstein, Right. With lovers like that, who needs democracy?

Weinstein was a pillar of the Hollywood establishment with movies such as “The King’s Speech,” “The Artist,” “Shakespeare in Love,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Django Unchained,” and “Good Will Hunting.” (For a total of 1400 Oscar nominations, and 81 received Oscars…). Weinstein was rumored to have fled to France (for “rehab”). Then he resurfaced in LA, and conferred onto himself:”Second Chance!

The “King’s Speech” was total BS to mask the fact that the preceding king and his partisans, were Nazis foaming at the mouth, who signed a Treaty with Hitler in 1935, to violate the Versailles Treaty. So now a whole new generation of young morons think speech difficulties is what made Britain interesting then. Thanks Mr. Weinstein. In truth, in my book, what made Britain interesting in 1936 was that her forcefully ejected king was a Nazi.

That entire US pseudo-Democratic establishment spent lots of political capital pointing at Trump as immoral and crazy, while themselves indulging with relish in the very practices they conferred to Trump (this observation shouldn’t be construed as a support for Trump). This sort of accusations of crimes by those who indulge in them is a human characteristic. For example Louis XIV accused more than 10% of the population of his kingdom, France, the  Protestants, of the very crimes he himself committed with gusto. Ditto Hitler,and other anti-Jews with the Jews. Or, for that matter, Nero with the Christians. Or the Inquisition with the heretics: who was cavorting with the Devil? The Vatican, or its victims?

What, me worry? Life is a blast. Sexual Criminals provide me the employment, and overlordship. Malia Obama: to Harvard, like her dad and her grand-father (a Kenyan politician the CIA found convenient as a potential strongman). But first internship with the world’s most famous sex aggressor was a must (see “The Weinstein Company” logo behind): learning from this master of propaganda how to navigate to domesticate We The People, the police, judges, etc.

Malia Obama worked for Harvey Weinstein. Yes, you read that right: the first job her Great Leader Dad found for her was with the world’s most famous serial, notorious, mass sex abuser Harvey Weinstein! Reality writes better scripts than fiction. And certainly better than Obama or Weinstein can.

Malia Obama, 19, landed an internship at the Weinstein Company right after her dad left the US Presidency earlier this year, see The Hollywood Reporter. Working in the New York City office,TMZ reported that Malia Obama was “ensconced in the production/development department,” tasked with “reading through scripts and deciding which ones move on to Weinstein brass.”

A genius, we tell you. Malia’s well connected internship has come under sudden scrutiny by the Mainstream Media (MSM) in the wake of a New York Times investigation that revealed Harvey Weinstein paid off at least eight women who accused him of sexual harassment in quid pro quo for promises that he would help further their entertainment careers. Since then the scandal has blossomed enormously: all sort of actresses came saying it happened to them to. In other words, they were OK with humoring Mr. Weinstein until they were in danger of being exposed.

Senator Obama was great buddy of rich pig Harvey Weinstein (right). So were Senator Lautenberg and Senator Schumer from New York (the later presently the Democratic head of the US Senate). Yes, they all knew. Life is a blast. Why should they worry?

Frank Rich, who used to be the most interesting writer at the New York Times, before he left it, and now executive producer for Veep and a New York writer, has done a bit of thinking. Mr. Rich revealed that Weinstein’s sexual transgressions were not a secret.

“Biggest mystery of @nytimes Weinstein story: How exemplary parents like Obamas let their daughter work there. The stories were out there,” Rich wrote on Twitter.

In what is Obama exemplary, exactly? The quest for power at any cost? To quote the Rolling Stones in the 1968 song “Family: “Her ambition is to be a prostitute, But the breaks just weren’t right. What exactly is gonna happen, tell me?

When her father finds out That his virgin daughter has bordello dreams And that he’s the one she wants to try out. Yeah. There’s ma, she’s living dangerously It’s a cinch she’ll try it anything twice She thinks she can run right to the whirlpool’s edge And stop herself just in time.

What exactly is gonna happen?”

All in the family. Film producer,  studio executive, suspected serial mass sex criminal Harvey Weinstein laughs at remarks directed at him by U.S. first lady Michelle Obama as she hosts a workshop at the White House for high school students about careers in film in Washington November 8, 2013. At right is actress Whoopi Goldberg. Wealthy clowns giving sexism and exploitation a happy, friendly face.

What exactly is going to happen is the question Rich is asking after the richer got more rich under Obama than they ever had been before. What is exactly going to happen is that we are getting all F… up, and the planet too. Indeed, guys like Weinstein made the breaks right. They were all on it. They all knew. A few years back a curvaceous Italian model accused Weinstein of sexual attack, ran to the police. Weinstein’s office dismissed Ambra Battilana, a 22-year-old who testified in the sex scandal case of former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, as an opportunist with a sketchy past (but Weinstein didn’t deny having attacked her to the police! Never mind, that’s new York, we will overlook an admission of sexual assault when a Pluto does it!)

The establishment is very cynical: it was even ready to disingenuously denounce Weinstein, sounding indignant, to paint itself all over with an aura of morality. There is an upper class out there, roaming the planet, organizing it for themselves.

It’s all very simple: politics, as it is, is not about taking care of civilization, or the planet. It’s the domain of greedsters who learn to navigate in a sea of prostitution, and dazzlingly smile about it, to convince you all they are good guys.

A few days ago, I interviewed a janitor in a San Francisco skyscraper. He was cleaning a carpet with obviously dangerous chemicals. He removed his mask. His name was Abdullah, from Yemen. He had been doing this for 22 years. He had to flee Yemen because of war. It was the fault of the Saudis, with the Americans pulling the strings, circulating the oil money back to Wall Street, he said. (He even confided much more that I will not reproduce here lest he and me run in trouble)

I know plutocrats and quasi-plutocrats: I could never have such a conversation with them. I know, I tried, many times: they just look down, say they don’t believe in conspiracy theories, and politely excuse themselves. Then they unfriend and start a Twitter campaign against the would-be offending conspiracy theorist, namely yours truly…

Yes, Abdullah also knew the UN Security Council decided last week an inquiry on the situation in Yemen. He told me that was just because Saudi Arabia had decided to buy SA 400 aerial defense missiles from Russia, to put a bit of pressure on them…

Their ambitions were to be prostitutes: how can we unsettle them psychologically? Well, we can’t: they indulge in what they condemn. We may as well try to make Stalin feel guilty of killing millions (once a self-congratulatory Stalin, in an orgasm of sincerity, cocktail in hand, boasted to Winston Churchill that he killed even more Russians than Hitler did…)

We can’t unsettle them, but we can ooze towards a more democratic system, and that means there shouldn’t not been so much money around in politics. Also mandates could be limited to one year, as they were in the Roman Republic, or Switzerland, and the real direct democracy re-introduced, after 23 centuries of eclipse.

Another old friend of Obama, who knew him already nearly half a century ago is pretty persuaded that guys like Harvey Weinstein are kept as potential distractions, when real serious stuff is coming down.

It happened before: the connection between the US government, the Italian Mafia, the United Fruit style Mafia, the Kennedys, the Banana Republics, was kept out of sight, although the most prominent general of the US Marine Corps, Smedley Butler mentioned it vociferously.  There and then, in the 1930s.

Out of sight, in plain sight: this is what the Plutocratically owned media knows how to do very well, and it has got way worse with the Internet. Hence a general stupidification.

Ignorant folks will scoff. But that’s how Auschwitz happened: the news were there, but people preferred to read fake news. At least in the USA. Thus the USA and the countries it influenced (Belgium, the Netherlands, Britain, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Ireland and of course fascist Italy) refused to collaborate with the French Republic in a timely manner. Poland and France were left alone to face the spectacular coalition of the Soviet Union, Imperial Japan, Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany and smaller murderous clowns.

Since then many more conspiracies and occultations occurred.  The “Terror” war is one consequence. Just one of them. Past leading ideas of the USA are exposed for what they are: prone to scheming hypocrisy, pushing us into the abyss, dragging us all.

This is true not just on the lofty level: in the Bay Area fires, plenty of ways to avoid them were neglected, in part because “pot”, the well-being of geese, and the obsession with the scores of sport teams were deemed to be much more important issues. A few measures would have avoided the fire calamity, for examples replacing overhead power wires with underground ones, stucco plastered houses (as in Paris, 1660 CE), and faster mobilization of firemen… Right now, the madness of Kim of North Korea, who threatened explicitly nuclear strikes, is also a very practical and direct matter. As entire neighborhoods of the San Francisco Bay now look as if they were atom-bombed, this should be meditated.

One prominent hypocrisy is that sexism is strong out there, and everybody affecting gravitas does as if it flourished only in Saudi Arabia. Watch the non-noble Nobel Prizes: one more year, and no woman laureate. No wonder: when women try to have a career, they are made completely different propositions, and that’s viewed as acceptable. And the pseudo-left leadership of the USA not only knew it, knows it, but also makes careers out of it, and can’t find a better place for their daughters to go to. I guess when one is a successful prostitute, as so many of our pseudo-leaders are, it’s probably tempting to feel one should prepare one’s child for such a career. Thus the evil sentiments which support evil groups procreate, from parent to child.

Civilization doesn’t just progress: it lurches, from time to time, as past behaviors are found intolerable. For sexism, it is high time to realize that what the political leaders found acceptable and alluring (see the pictures above) is intolerable and condemnable.

Courageous individuals, such as Rose McGowan, who denounced Weinstein, in spite of getting $100,000 to stay silent about her rape twenty years ago, and launched the campaign against him, are needed. Those are the true leaders. The narcissistic ones, obsessed by navigating their precious selves towards all they can turn into gold, were already, rightly, excoriated in the Bible.

Unfortunately, in so-called “representative democracy” (a contradiction in adjecto, if there ever was one!), the ambition of our so-called “representatives” and politicians, is to be prostitutes.

Culture wars have to be engaged, and won by the good guys, if one is to be spared real wars. Right now, the bad guys have had all the powers. And having all the powers make them worse. Why? Because, deep down in human psychobiology (= human ethology) is anchored the will to Armageddon. Why? Because when there are too many people, and one can get away with anything, the ultimate crime is committed, the crime of the holocaust of the very environment which supports the species (this is Patrice’s Evil Theory, in a nutshell). That has to be avoided at any cost. And that’s when all values get inverted.

Arranging History To Suit Plutocracy: French, Jews, Nazis, & Vel D’Hiv

July 17, 2017

Consider this: French president Macron declared that: “Anti-Zionism is antisemitism”. A friend of mine asked me what I thought of that idea. I said the obvious. First “antisemitism” is a lie:”antisemitism” as Macron uses it means “antijudaism”. Palestinians are semite, still they tend to be anti-Israel, which, according to Macron, would make them “antisemite”, thus being one thing and its opposite.

Sheer madness. But no accident: an aim of the present world leadership is MAD, not just in the sense of Mutually Assured Destruction, but in the sense that, once we are mad, we won’t make sense, thus they will keep on overwhelming us, because they, and the masters they serve, know very well where they are heading: towards inflicting ever more abuse. Abuse is its own deliriously satisfying power satisfaction.  (A little secret official humanists do not reveal as most of those with power partake in it!)

In green the parts of Europe and Africa under direct German military and government command. What The Vicious (?) Idiots (??) Who Claim France Ordered The Vel D’Hiv Deportation Pretend NOT to understand: Paris was under direct German Third Reich Administration, Subjugation, Enslavement, etc… It was NOT under Vichy putsch regime command (that’s in blue, early in 1942; later the Nazis overtook the entire metropolitan France).

Consider this: the preceding friend, a very educated, multilingual, upper class US citizen, told by me that the USA waited for Hitler to declare war, even after Pearl Harbor, reflectively replied:”Yes, but France had this Vichy government side with the Nazis against the Jews first.”

That is 100% false in several dimensions, each. Yet that several ways grievously erroneous opinion is pretty much ubiquitous in much of the world, inverting the basic facts of France and Nazism. The result being that the country which promulgated Human Rights the most, especially after 1789, is widely perceived as racist and vicious. Guess who profits from this? Global plutocracy, the global enemy of human rights. And who are the paymasters of our global leadership? Global plutocrats.

How did one get there? By myths promulgated by the French authorities themselves, in recent years. And why did those think it was so smart? Because all politicians, worldwide follow the smell of money, just as a viper follows the smell of the mice it just stung.

This would bring us to the touchy subject of who gave Macron the money to buy a one million Euro apartment when he was 25 years old (hint: not his parents, but some very wealthy people). It’s so touchy, I will leave it alone. As my mom said: ”Macron is president, and that’s it.”

Macron just tweeted: Emmanuel Macron‏Verified account: “Je crois à la logique de la confiance…” “I believe in the logic of trust”. Yes, how can one trust France which, according to its president “organized… the death of 13,152 [Jewish] persons”?

Let me reassure you right away: “France” did NOT organize said death of 13,152 persons. Under direct, nearly explicitly lethal, if disobeyed, Nazi orders, French police organized the arrest of (more or less then) illegal foreigners and refugees on Nazi occupied French soil. Not glorious, but the alternative was death at Nazis’ hands for disobedient police (of which there were plenty; ultimately Parisian police would rise in armed rebellion against the Nazis, two years later, when said rebellion was not just suicide). Our great leaders tend to take so many short circuits with truth that their logics blow up, in the maw of reality. This enable them to zap us. Inurement to blowing up of the logics we are submitted and accustomed to, enables our leaders to zap us further.

Thus reality is neither what our great “chiefs” sell, or buy. Madness is more like it.

(An example is the vaunted “Two States solution” in Israel-Palestine which is neither a state, nor a solution.)

Mythomania, or how to manipulate We the Peoples:

A head of state is at the head of myths. A head of state speaks with acts. The head of state speaks, even with silence. A head of state can speak with courage. Or cowardice. Or reason, or, even, to future history with future conspiracies, to be unveiled some day.

Except when they are raw truth, those myths are made to manipulate people. The more distant from truth the myth are, the more manipulative. I am a partisan of raw truth. I have found it the best fuel for human destiny.

Hitler described and used what he called the Big Lie technique. There are other methods, though, more akin to the “esprit de finesse” extolled by Macron, the French President. Basic dynamics help to understand what is going on. One Big Lie is the equivalent of a high acceleration: after it, one goes far, fast. But a succession of little lies equivalent to a sum of little accelerations will get you even further, because little lies are harder to detect, and one may be left with dozens of them in just one system of thought, after neutralizing a few. Instead, Nazism rested on less than half a dozen Big Lies.

***

I will illustrate in a further essay how approximations and liberties taken with history can sum up as giant lies, with the case of macron and the Vel d’Hiv. Such lies deserve it, the planet shares them all, and they are used as an excuse to ditch the Enlightenment.

Meanwhile one can read: https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2017/05/01/vel-dhiv-roundup-ordered-by-the-german-nazis-not-france/

The enemies  of France love to confuse the French and the (German!) Nazis. That the latest self-described “chief” of France deems important to promote that identification is an indication of how rotten the head of civilization has become.

Tell me Macron, why is it so crucially important to tell the world that France went “Heil Hitler!” in 1942? Blaming the victim is real foremost? Just a month after Bir Hakiem, when a small French army removed the last hope the Nazis had to win the Second World War?

At Bir Hakeim, the French army of general Marie-Pierre Kœnig delayed by several weeks one of these sickle move of general Edwin Rommel was expert at. Rommel was going to encircle the defeated and retreating British Eighth Army, the only anti-Nazi significant military force between  England and India (with 110,000 soldiers, 850 tanks). Rommel knew that, as he put it “the fate of my army was at stake“. Actually Rommel knew all too well that the fate of the Reich was at stake. 

The Nazi plan was to seize Egypt, then kill all the Jews of Israel, and capture Iraqi oil, desperately needed by the Nazi war machine. In the aftermath of the Nazi defeat at Bir Hakeim, Hitler declared to his cabinet that the French were indeed the world’s best soldiers with his own Nazi soldiers. He added that, thus that’s why exactly Nazi-occupied France had to be completely destroyed, so she couldn’t never rise again.

Bir Hakeim should be as, or more famous than Thermopylae. There 300 Spartans delayed the Persian juggernaut invading Greece by three days. They all died in combat, refusing to surrender. At Bir Hakeim, the French army delayed the Nazi-Italian fascist juggernaut by three weeks. Officially, the French had 141 killed in combat at Bir Hakeim. However, out of 3,700 French soldiers fighting, more than 1,500 disappeared one way or another (many died in the desert during confused night action; the French would burrow in the day, counterattack at night).  

Bir Hakeim forced the Nazis to make an all-out assault towards the Caucasus, to get its oil, which they desperately needed, and, to protect their flank they had to seize the military-industrial city of Stalingrad (although they faced enormous Soviet forces on the way there). That was extremely risky, and the Nazi army was encircled many times in its desperate assault towards Stalingrad (where it would be, unsurprisingly, annihilated).

The highest Nazis (Hitler, Himmler, Heydrich…) had to make the other top Nazi leaders understand, at the Wannsee conference on January 20, 1942, in Berlin, 6 months before the Vel d’Hiv, that they should not stand in the way of the “final solution”.  

But all Macron wants children of the world to learn from history is that:  “France organized… the death of 13,152 [Jewish] persons”? With “chiefs” like that, who needs suicide?

Zuckerberg Sucks Bergs

July 11, 2017

Zuckerberg, Facebook main owner: “Priscilla and I spent the weekend around Homer, Alaska as part of the Year of Travel challenge. It’s beautiful here.” Next week, he does Bali? How does he travel there? Cattle class? Probably a personal jumbo jet, like the Google guys. Full of an army of bodyguards. Could we emit more CO2 please, Antarctica is not breaking apart fast enough! OK, I have been to Alaska more than once, it’s incredibly beautiful there. But I also have (lots of) close family in Alaska (thus a good excuse to visit).

Zuckerberg: “Alaska has a form of basic income called the Permanent Fund Dividend. Every year, a portion of the oil revenue the state makes is put into a fund. Rather than having the government spend that money, it is returned to Alaskan residents through a yearly dividend that is normally $1000 or more per person. That can be especially meaningful if your family has five or six people.

This is a novel approach to basic income in a few ways. First, it’s funded by natural resources rather than raising taxes. Second, it comes from conservative principles of smaller government, rather than progressive principles of a larger safety net. This shows basic income is a bipartisan idea.”

Zuck is poorly informed: the dividend used to be much more than $1000 per year per person. But now the state is heading towards heavy debt, from the collapse of oil revenues. Zuck also has some cheeks, to call “especially meaningful” to earn one thousand dollars a year, when he earns personally several billions dollars every few months.  Notice in passing that smaller government and eschewing “progressive principles of a larger safety net… is a bipartisan idea”. According to him.

***

Pluto Zuck says: …“basic income… [to be] funded by natural resources rather than raising taxes. Second, it comes from conservative principles of smaller government, rather than progressive principles of a larger safety net. This shows basic income is a bipartisan idea.” So go hunt in the forest: there are your natural resources. “Conservative principles of smaller government… is a bipartisan idea”. Progressive principles are not bipartisan.

In other words, the bipartisan party is the plutocratic party. It’s also ironical, that a “larger safety net” is to be avoided: except for Zuck himself, who needs to be protected by his own private army.

In San Francisco where Zuckerberg (also) resides, those who bother his army of bodyguards are thrown in prison, three months at a time. A man sleeping outside Zuckerberg in his car was put in prison. In his other mansion in Palo Alto, Zuckerberg, college drop-out, but NSA collaborator, receives the safety net of 16 bodyguards, 24/7. It was not enough to buy the four mansions around his own… to insure his own “progressive principles of a larger safety net”. 

In Zuckerberg’s world, the world is about Zuckerberg. Serving Zuckerberg’s safety.

Not happy? You are probably “an unstable Internet user” and you should move to Alaska! There, you can go, live off “natural resources” as native Americans do so successfully, hunting bears and the like.

***

Not only Zuckerberg sucks the teat of state, but he gives us lessons about us, low lives, needing to quit the habit

While claiming he does not, as demonstrated by his desire to make the state much smaller … forgetting that Facebook, operating hand in hand with US intelligence, has made the state so much larger and omnipresent. This is a deliberately confusing circus, or, as the Guardian puts it: “Mark Zuckerberg is part of the bigger trend of global companies expecting the state to pick up the tab even though they’re not prepared to pay the taxes to fund it.

I have long said this, attracting opprobrium. Zuckerberg is also representative of these new plutocrats who treat the elected butlers supposed to represent us, as pigeons fighting for crumbs.

The Guardian has finally noticed how far the outrageous behavior of the Facebook founder will go. In Mark Zuckerberg’s got some cheek, advocating a universal basic income, Sonia Sodha observes that:

“Facebook’s CEO has spent the last couple of years casting himself in various guises. First, global philanthropist: he and his wife last year pledged to invest $3bn over 10 years in order to eradicate global disease (a well-meaning if hopelessly naive sentiment; it’s a tiny fraction of what’s spent on medical research worldwide). Most lately, social commentator: Zuckerberg is currently undertaking a 50-state meet-and-greet tour across the United States. Little wonder rumours are flying that he fancies himself for an imminent White House run.

Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg aim to ‘cure, prevent and manage’ all disease?

Put aside for a moment the chilling thought that if the chief of the world’s most ubiquitous media platform chose to run to be leader of the free world, his command of Facebook’s unrivalled ability to profile, segment and target voters might make him all but unbeatable. What might he do as president? The missives from his grand tour – published, of course, on Facebook – provide some clues. Last week’s was from Alaska. Zuckerberg used it as an opportunity to heap praise on the idea of a universal basic income – an unconditional income paid by government to all citizens, regardless of whether or not they’re in work.”

***

Plutocrats love men, as lions do, with no government to protect them:

We are told Marc Zuckerberg, his wife, Priscilla Chan, and their ilk, are “lovers of man” (phil-anthropos). The wealthiest spy agency operators in the world are “persons who seeks to promote the welfare of others”. Does that mean we don’t? Does that mean we don’t promote the welfare of others? Does that mean that one has to avoid paying billions of dollars in taxes, to be called a lover of man? Does that mean one has to run the world’s largest spying operation, to be called a “lover of man”? Does that mean we have to pledge billions of tax money we should have paid to be called a “lover of man”?

The generosity of bandits has no limits: their survival depends upon it.

Let’s do a little computation. The median family income in the USA is 60 K. The median worth, a bit more. So “worth” and yearly income are roughly the same. Scaling this up to Zuckerberg, this means the plutocrat controls money flows of the order of his wealth, each year. Namely 50 billions. (Facebook’s revenue in 2016 was actually $28 billion.)

***

Zuckerberg and Chan claim they want to save the world, do good. But they are living, impudent, obvious, blatant symbols of inequality, the greatest factor in human misery. The more unequal a society the more selfish, violent, stupid, insane, ill, unfair, demented a society is. If Zuck Zuck and Chan were sincere, they would fund an academy for the reduction of inequality. If Zuckerberg was sincere,he would advocate for higher taxes. Instead, he advocates for the exact opposite, and he basically pays no taxes already (relative to his income and effective control output)

***

Separation of wealth and state violated:

In other words Zuckerberg directly directs the flow of 1/1000 of the world economy. However, Zuckerberg’s influence is far more ranging: Zuckerberg has been received in all the presidential palaces and heads of governments mansions, in the countries which really matter, including China. Why do the mightiest receive the wealthiest in the halls of power? Isn’t this, per se, a violation of the separation of wealth and state?

Presumably, Zuckerberg and his ilk are negotiating his power of influence versus the future incomes of elected officials, their kin, friends, children… Zuckerberg and his ilk are together-breathing (con-spirare) with the mightiest politicians. The latter are ephemeral, Zuckerberg is permanent. Here is The Guardian again:

***

“Zuckerberg’s got some cheek. The idea of a universal basic income is all very well and good in sparsely populated Alaska, where revenues from natural oil fund a modest annual dividend to the state’s permanent residents that in the last decade has varied between $800 and $2,000.

But the proponents of a basic income often talk it up as replacement for welfare benefits altogether. Funding a decent safety net that gets paid to everyone – where there isn’t a multibillion-dollar state-backed fund conveniently created in the 1970s from oil reserves – would be very expensive. The cash would either have to come from hiking up taxes or significantly cutting back state spending on other services, such as education and health.

Here’s the rub. Zuckerberg has no right to pronounce on what the welfare state should look like while Facebook takes aggressive measures to minimise its tax burden. Here in the UK, Facebook paid just £4,327 in corporation tax in 2014, despite paying its UK staff bonuses of £35m. In 2015, it offset its tax bill of £4.2m against a tax credit of £11.3m – despite making global profits of almost £5bn.”

***

Work is power, so we will take it away from you, replace it by basic income, say Silicon Valley plutocrats;

This is an infection: those plutocrats rule the world. Just as when the Roman Republic started to die, they have found tricks to avoid taxes, by using globalization, exactly as the Roman plutocrats did!

“It’s not just Facebook: global tech giants such as Amazon and Google are notorious for exploiting every loophole to get out of paying their fair share of tax. It’s deeply hypocritical for Zuckerberg to back the idea of a state-based income while his company does everything it can to avoid paying tax. And there’s a clue Zuckerberg sees a basic income as a replacement for, not in addition to, public services, “It comes from conservative principles of smaller government, rather than progressive principles of a larger safety net,” he writes.

Zuckerberg is not the first Silicon Valley CEO to talk up universal basic income: it’s an idea fast gaining traction in that corner of California. This is no coincidence. One of the beliefs that powers Silicon Valley’s fervent tech worship is the idea that artificial intelligence and automation will one day spell the end of work. This is implicit in the business plans: Uber’s growth strategy, for instance, is based on the idea that driverless technology will one day replace its drivers altogether.”

The More Income Inequality In A Country, The More Drug Use:

Thanks, oh you, billionaires! As Inequality Has Exploded in the USA in recent years, thanks to Obama’s Quantitative Easing and pro-plutocratic monopolies ploy, so has drug usage. There are now more death from drugs than from cars of shootings.

***

How come cockamamie plutocrats? Lack of basic education!

Most plutocrats are actually rather ignorant: Zuckerberg, Gates have no college degrees (Whereas Warren Buffet has a master of science in economics from Columbia U). They didn’t go through basic education. If he had, maybe Zuckerberg would realize the income per capita of Alaskan citizen used to be ten times more (in constant dollars). I wouldn’t be surprised if it had disappeared next year. Zuck probably knows nothing of the history of the price of oil.

About three out of 10 billionaires—29.9%—around the world did not have at least a bachelor degree in 2015, according to a billionaire census by Wealth-X. That’s 739 out of the total 2,473 billionaires.

It’s a bit of a problem, because these people are leading the world’s politicians by the nose at this point. They think they are the smartest, but, typically, they confuse smarts, greed, happenstance, and conspiracy (“Social Networks” and other high-tech as a spy agencies…)

To mitigate this capture of politics by one needs to introduce a good dose of direct democracy: then the orders will be coming not from the wealthiest, stupidest people in the world, but directly from We The People, as they did in Athens, Rome, and now Switzerland…

 

***

Civilization means government. Big Government started with Trajan, then the Merovingians:

Let’s backtrack a bit: Roman emperor Trajan fostered higher taxes on the wealthiest to enable a welfare state, including food distribution to the poor, government scholarship to meritorious students. Under Trajan, initially a general a bit similar to Eisenhower, the Roman empire reached its largest extent (Trajan ruled from 98 CE to 117 CE). Where did Trajan get his ideas? Trajan ingratiated himself with the Greek intellectual elite, including historians such as Plutarch and Dio (who was recalled to Rome). Be it Athenian leaders such as Pericles, or the kings of France in the Twelfth or Fourteenth centuries, massive progress was directly attributed with civilization class intellectuals interfacing directly with the leaders: the edge of civilization is one, top thinking allow it to cut. (De-cide means, exactly, to cut-off!)

Starting in the Sixth Century, the Merovingian Franks (ruling France and Germany, and soon, all of Europe) made secular education global, mandatory, and non-profit. Secular education became a function the government imposed on the Churches (the Pope got infuriated in vain). Later more government in the Middle Ages imposed more functions: not just free universities, but free health care, taking care of abandoned babies, no questions asked.

The “small government” movement championed by Silicon Valley monopolists inverts all this: students pay something like a third of the median family income, to attend the “public” university of California in tuition alone (not counting room and board). Meanwhile top plutocrats in the USA have earned hundreds of billions from the private healthcare system of the USA (and then claim to be democrats, and give to the “Democratic” Party which enabled their lucrative activities…)

Facebook & its ilk want to cut all that government down, so that they instead, are the oligarchy: the few (oligo) who rule. They have already achieved that status, hence their insolence and impudence. If Teddy Roosevelt were around, he would mount his white charger, and arrest them all at gunpoint, for violating anti-monopoly laws.

As The Guardian observes: “Obsessing about a universal basic income as the panacea for the shortcomings of the labour market of the future is a distraction from tackling the problems in the labour market of today.” Well, that’s exactly why they obsess: it’s very self-serving: the plutocrats want slaves.

Not just that, but the plutocrats’ obsession with self-serving issues invites us all to obsess with them on the same issues, instead of asking why is it that they pay so little taxes, have so much power, are constantly received by ephemeral power holders, have bent the tax code to serve themselves, name hospitals after themselves, made deals with spy agencies to “open backdoors”, and all sorts of deals which are rumored about in Silicon Valley, etc

Bigger Civilization, Bigger Government:

It’s no coincidence that the biggest civilizations had the biggest (and best) governments: Sumer, Egypt, Babylon, Achaemenid Persia, Rome, China, France…

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2013/08/13/synthesis-found-governmentalism/

When we consider the progress of civilization over the last 4000 years, we observe an ever greater power of just, fair, balanced, and intelligent government. However, Zuckerberg’s operation is none of this: it’s just a one man show. Put a representation of part of the anatomy of a human female chest, Zuck will get you banned. The guy is that dumb. And that’s why he wants to rule the world.

Sonia Sodha concludes: “We should be fighting for a society in which everyone has the right to a decently paid job that provides them with autonomy and fulfilment; not a future in which a big chunk of the population is consigned to exist on meagre state handouts. At best, a universal basic income is a dangerous diversion from how to improve the quality of work. At worst, it could be an enabler for the dark motives of the Silicon Valley tech scene. We’d be naive to buy into the idea that the owners of the robots would happily carry on paying the rest of us a basic income if it no longer suited them. Karl Marx would be turning in his grave at this fundamental misunderstanding of how economic power works.”

Zuckerberg himself is an epiphenomenon, like a flake of snow shining on top of the iceberg of the inversion of all values, which has led to a stalling of civilization and endangerment of the biosphere. The cult of The One is the ultimate form of intellectual fascism. It has led to tax-free monopolies in the global economy, but it was preceded by a cult of celebrities… even in science, and other intellectual domains, where only a few, the stars, get funded well.

It’s as if Usain Bolt’s starting line was ten meters ahead, noticed the scientific journal Nature in “Our obsession with eminence warps research“: “We can quantify exactly how much faster Usain Bolt is than the next-fastest sprinter. It’s much harder to say who is the best scientist, let alone how much better they are than the next-best scientist. Deciding who deserves recognition is, at least in part, a judgement call.”

It’s even harder to find out who the best thinkers are, and what the best thinking is. However, what we have now is plutocrats and their lackeys dominating the debate. There is not even an independent intellectual class, as most intellectuals in academia are on the take, or know they should have a low profile. Superstars dissenters tend to be all barking up the wrong tree (although The Guardian essay quoted above is a good sign).

A fundamental democratic right in Ancient Greece was isegoria. The right to speak equally. It is massively manipulated nowadays. The ownership of all media by the plutocratic class has led to a situation where lowering taxes on the hyper-wealthy has become “bipartisan”, and earning one thousand dollar a year is “especially gratifying” in the eyes of those earning billions a year, and they can then advertise their “love of man” and flaunt their pledges to give billions, well, you know, someday…

All these self-important tax cheating, conspiring monopolists at the teat of governments, worldwide, deserve out contempt. Really, not kidding: New York Times bans me. Who is the greatest holder of common shares of the NYT? Carlos Slims, scion of a plutocratic Mexican family. How did he become for a while the world’s richest man? Because Mexican government officials conspired to offer him Mexican Telecom at rock bottom prices. No doubt: they were well rewarded.

Now we see these government connected billionaire punks, going around the world in their personal jumbo jets, paying their way through government, media and academic circles, to mold decisions in their favor. And what of all the CO2? What of the greatest biological extinction now apparently forming and accelerating?

They don’t care: as they circle the globe in their CO2 spewing jumbo jets, billionaires and their obsequious political butlers suck entire iceberg in the maw of the global warming they generate, and it’s their friend, because they profit from disaster (be only as a distraction from their ill deeds…)

We are facing an inversion of all civilization, and even the biosphere. Plutocrats and their ideology are the prophets of the extinction of all values, and of all worth.

Another Day, Another Islamist Attack: Outlaw The Preaching!

June 19, 2017

Ah, for a respite from heavy philosophizing such as pondering consciousness and the associated unconscious… We can trust the barbarians to provide us with what they passes for entertainment in the desert, namely, mayhem… (Desert raiding by nomads a la Muhammad, attacking traders and peasants, is even older than civilization…)

A French Islam practitioner attacked the Gendarmerie on the Champ Elysees. The assailant, complete with explosive, assault gun, etc. was badly burned and died at the scene (the Gendarmerie is part of the army, not the police, and is heavily armed).

Literal Islam, as depicted literally in the Qur’an, and, worse, the Hadith, is incompatible with Western civilization. This is not being insulting, unfair or racist to say so. It was explicitly designed that way by Muhammad. Muhammad expressed himself very clearly: he thought the Jews and Christians had failed to enact the Bible literally. He also wrote that the Greeks, Romans and Persians, with their empires, had prevented the Arabs to raid, for a full millennium. With Muhammad’s new religion, this was all going to change: demographics and Jihad would be cranked up. 

Core Of Western Civilization Under Siege. Notre Dame is not just a cathedral built nine centuries ago. It was also where what came to be known as the “UNIVERSITY” was located, for many centuries before that. By law the Cathedral Of Paris had (the best in Europe) secular teaching in Europe, already by the Seventh Century. It was an obligatory mandate, a law imposed ordered onto all religious establishment by Salian (secular) law.  When the old cathedral was demolished and replaced by the present one, the mandate went on.

That Islam is a war machine against Greco-Roman civilization  (and even against the related Persian Sassanid civilization) is the incontrovertible fact, made plain in the sacred texts of Islam. It’s written black on white. Ultimately, there are thus only two outcomes: 1) Literal interpretation and preaching of Literal Islam is outlawed, and the law against preaching murder of most of the population is enforced. Or, 2) Western civilization is destroyed (as Muhammad intended explicitly to do, and that’s why he personally led the first attack against the Roman empire).

This is simple, and it should not be very hard to understand to those with independent thinking capability. Those who have not spent, let’s say one hundred hours reading the full Qur’an and the most significant parts of the Hadith, should not be considered cogent enough to disagree stridently with this (and most Muslims have not read the Qur’an, let alone the Hadith; they only know some deceiving passages which carefully avoid the gist of the message of the Messenger…) The Qur’an for example, orders “a rain of stones” on homosexuals. On this particular subject, the Qur’an quotes Lot, in the Bible’s Old Testament.

And so on. Most people nowadays belong to categories of people which the Qur’an orders to be “thrown in the fire”. The Hadith 41; 685, repeated many times in different variants, says that: …”Allah’s Messenger… : The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will FIGHT against the Jews and the Muslims would KILL them…” Next time you consider Israel’s occupation of the Golan Heights, and its influence beyond that, remember this… 

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2015/01/16/thought-crime/

It is possible to construct variant of “Sufi” Islam which are fully compatible with Western civilization (as found historically in Senegal). Those should be encouraged, promoted. But they have been swamped by Literal Islam, deadly enemy of civilization.

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2017/06/10/islam-religion-of-fighting-says-caliph/

Preaching hate crimes should be considered to be a grievous crime, especially when targeting children. It does not matter if it is in the name of the Arab God, or the Aztec God Huichilobos. Preaching, or teaching hatred should be punished by very long prison sentences, and expulsion (when possible).

Notice that ordering to kill many categories of people, as the Qur’an orders to, is tantamount to order human sacrifices of most of the population. In the Roman Republic, religions ordering human sacrifices were outlawed into inexistence. So there we have a legal precedent, more than 2,000 years old.

This was in answer to an article in the Economist, typical of the cluelessness of journalists :

Why Europe’s Muslims do not chant in unison, as its politicians would like

The messy politics of European Islam

Erasmus, Jun 18th 2017

IN THE realm of European Islam, nothing is going quite to plan. In the perfect scenario of the continent’s mainstream politicians, the law-abiding majority of Muslim citizens would be coming together now in a massive, thundering condemnation of terrorism. That in turn would create a renewed social consensus, paving the way for the defeat of terrorism in its latest, horrible forms, as it has been perpetrated in places like Nice, Brussels, Berlin, Manchester and London.

Reality turns out to be messier…

[Prime Minister] Theresa May threw out a sharp-tongued challenge to British Muslims in the aftermath of the murderous attack that began at London Bridge on June 3rd. The problem, the prime minister declared, is ideological and cultural, rather than simply a challenge for the police and security services. In her words,

There is…far too much tolerance of extremism in our country. So we need to become far more robust in identifying it and stamping it out across the public sector and across society. That will require some difficult, and often embarrassing, conversations`…The whole of our country needs to take on this extremism, and we need to live our lives not in a series of separated, segregated communities but as one truly United Kingdom.

… [Hundreds of british Imams reacted…] But look closely at the prayer leaders’ declaration, as published by the Muslim Council of Britain, and you will see that they are far from following Mrs May’s hymn-sheet. The first batch of imams to sign the “no funeral” statement added some important qualifications:

The statement should not detract from the seriousness of oppression and persecution occurring around the world, especially to Muslims, whom we remember in our prayers by day and night…It should also not detract from deeply unfortunate statements issuing forth from some quarters, which seek to implicate the entire Muslim community and the religion of Islam, or insinuate that one system of values is ontologically superior to another.

Their message to Mrs May and her government might be paraphrased as something like: “If you want a broad conversation about ideology and culture, even an embarrassing one, let’s have one. But it won’t be the sort of conversation that you want or expect. You want to talk about imams with hardline ideas about gender, sexuality and self-segregation by Muslims, because you think all that is a gateway to terrorism. Well, we want to talk about Muslim grievances, including those over British foreign policy.”

In France, meanwhile, some lines of communication that used, for better or worse, to connect mainstream politics with Muslim community groups seem to have failed. One of the most widely organised Islamic bodies in France had hitherto been called the Union of Islamic Organisations of France (UOIF). It recently vowed to rename itself the “Muslims of France”. It is regarded as being ideologically close to the Muslim Brotherhood abroad, which it denies. During the 2012 presidential poll, it backed François Hollande, the successful Socialist candidate.

This year, Marine Le Pen, a far-right presidential candidate, repeatedly alleged that the UOIF and her centrist rival Emmanuel Macron were somehow linked in a disreputable pact. The charge completely failed to stick, or to prevent his victory, but it did force its targets onto the defensive. The Muslim organisation urged people to go to the polls but made no recommendation; and, in contrast with previous years, secular politicians stayed away from the organisation…

Staying away will not be enough. The essence of the problem has to be addressed. Neither the Bible, nor the Qur’an should rule the Republic. And serious death threats should be treated as such.

Republics are best at eradicating threats. Ah, yes, but the Republic is closer to a plutocracy in all too many ways, nowadays, and that’s the crux of the matter… The media are held by plutocrats and the meta teaching of plutocrats is how, not to think (so one won’t bother them). Then they can be like Amazon, telling you everything you need, and even feeding you (Amazon just bought “Whole Foods” for 14 billion dollars).

To make it easier on plutocracy, some in the French government announced that it was OK for Google not to pay tax. And I actually talked to a high level Intel engineer at a party in Atherton, California, 48 hours ago, and he told me, and others, that he didn’t see why large companies should pay tax. He added he didn’t believe in conspiracy theories… My answer discombobulated him, deeply, and he physically left the party. I guess I am a party pooper…

Dragonflies Play Dead, So Do Our Masters

April 30, 2017

Animal behavior can be extremely intelligent, even in insects. Being an animal means being intelligent. (I was once nearly pushed off a mountainside by a giant sheep which looked innocent, cuddly, thoroughly unawares and stupid enough, until it deliberately, smartly, shoved me downslope.)

A study from the University of Zurich, published in the journal Ecology, reveals that the moorland hawker dragonfly plunges at high speed, a risky maneuver, and then pretends to drop dead, upside down, to escape aggressive males (sometimes, the hovering male inspecting the belle from above, is not fooled, though…) There are instances of other animals faking their own deaths to avoid being killed, for example opossums, who look thoroughly disgusting, foaming at the mouth, as if they had a terrible disease (the disgusted predator, not wanting to catch something, generally walks away).  

I see, therefore I think. And I think playing dead works.

Playing dead is a well documented strategy (even in dragonflies). Yet, this is the only study of female animals faking deaths to avoid mating. 

Researcher Rassin Khelifa was collecting insect eggs in the Swiss Alps, something he had done for ten years, when he noticed that a female dragonfly would fake her own death by falling from the sky and then lie motionless on the ground until the male dragonfly leaves the area.

“While I was waiting at a pond near Arosa, at about 2,000 meter elevation,” he wrote, “I witnessed a dragonfly dive to the ground while being pursued by another dragonfly… the individual that crashed was a female, and that she was lying motionless and upside down on the ground. Upside down is an atypical posture for a dragonfly. The male hovered above the female for a couple seconds and then left. I expected that the female could be unconscious or even dead after her crash landing, but she surprised me by flying away quickly as I approached. The question arose: Did she just trick that male? Did she fake death to avoid male harassment? If so, this would be the first record of sexual death feigning in odonates.”

This is when the philosophical method has kicked in: the mind has one example, a single example, and builds a (putative scientific) theory from it. We know that’s how the visual system itself works (the visual system is mostly stimulated by itself: information from the eyes is less than 10%!)

The human mind is a philosopher.

After making this initial revelation, Khelifa spent the next few months documenting instances where a female dragonfly would crash-land and play dead while being pursued by a male dragonfly. He observed that when female dragonflies arrived at the pond where male dragonflies were “constantly patrolling looking for a mate”, the females would be intercepted mid-air. After copulating nearby, the male dragonfly would fly away, leaving the female unprotected while she laid her eggs.

In 86 percent of cases that Khelifa observed, the females would crash to the ground and fake their deaths. “Those that kept flying were all intercepted by a male but if they were motionless, 77.7 percent of the dragonflies were successful in deceiving the coercive male,” he wrote.

This behavior could have resulted from exaptation, a term in evolutionary biology to describe a trait that has been co-opted for a use other than the one for which natural selection has built it. “Since death feigning already exists in the behavioral repertoire of dragonflies, females of the moorland hawker expanded the use of this anti-predatory function to avoid male coercion,” Khelifa wrote. “On the other hand, the origin of this exaptation is probably sexual conflict where each sex adopts reproductive strategies that best serve its own survival and reproductive success.”

Plummeting to their fake deaths appears to help female dragonflies survive longer and produce more offspring by avoiding coercion. “Sexual death feigning is one of the rarest behaviors in nature, and due to its scarcity, it has received little attention in behavioral ecology. Currently, it is restricted only to arthropods. It would be interesting to know whether this scarcity is true or just an artifact related to the lack of behavioral investigations or difficulty in detecting this behavior.”

Playing Dead, and Playing Dumb: How Plutos Rule:

Thus, when I argue that human history is much subtle and infused with human will and machination than official history has it, remember the dragonflies! If they can be so smart, so can we!

My Machivellian philosophy and vision of history extends in many dimensions. Not just Islam, plutocracy, democracy, civilization, and the evil nature of the best humanism. Fortunately, it is gaining credence.

For example, the Egyptian ambassador to France, Ehab Badawi, a self-declared “moderate Muslim educated by Jesuits“, and was once punished by a Father for not having studied the Qur’an well! Ehab Badawi argues that the West is the main sponsor and enabler of terrorist Islam (he puts it a bit more diplomatically than me). Badawi says this: Western satellites carry TV channels which incite to evil interpretations of Islam, and make propaganda for the worst Islam madness. Thus, instead of accusing the Wahhabis from Saudi Arabia, the ambassador accuses the Western plutocrats (who launch and operate the Islam propaganda satellites).

I have explained that the rise of fundamentalist Islam was a deliberate ploy by US  and British plutocrats (more exactly, initially, oilmen). The de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia, the 31 year old Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, picked up a nearly three-quarter of a billion dollar yacht in south France last year (previously owned by Russian plutocrat). At the same time, he was imposing fierce austerity in Saudi Arabia. The Serene yacht was made in Italy.

Saudi Arabia is a dollar recycling machine which sends billions to Wall Street in a somewhat similar fashion to the European Central Bank sending 2.7 billion Euros a day to the world’s wealthiest entities. Smart. And when you ask the right questions, they play dead (that’s why I am censored by the New York Times).

Our masters and attending plutos would have to play dead, if one asked them the proper questions (fortunately for the plutocracy, in the USA, the democratic establishment is thoroughly pluto, and craftily replaced intelligent debate by racial and racist invectives, and other posing ways…)

The propaganda has been so intense, all values have been inverted. For example Paul Krugman is viewed as “left”, “liberal”, conscientious, an intellectual, look at him, like Obama, another deep thinker out of that shallow pond, he got a Noble.

Actually, as I have said for years, Krugman is nothing of the sort: he preaches disorienting venom. And this is now slowly starting to be understood by really deep thinkers. In light of what I said above about Muslim Fundamentalism (a plutocratic device), Krugman style thinking is just another plutocratic device. (And even the lukewarm critiques of the ilk of Sanders and Warren can be viewed as suspiciously mild posing…)

Similarly, in France, to block all changes, one accuses the National Front to be fascist. But surely the national Front is not causing the sinking of France? It was never in power. More generally, “populism” is accused of fascism (basically, following the model established in France, in the last thirty years, of calling the National Front, fascist and populist).

Meanwhile the European Union did its best to block in Turkey those who wanted to block Islamism (see Wall Street, above). Conclusion? The Sultan Erdogan has censored Wikipedia, blocked it, just as the New York Times blocks me. (It’s true that lies about Turkey, if outrageous enough, should be blocked; however, that should be done publicly, punctually, and debated. In a case like that, the state should be able to go to the Justice system, something that already exists for books. Worldwide.)

If the masters play brain-dead long enough, imposing their example, the brains of the rabble will atrophy, just as intended. Of course, to start with, a democracy with masters is a contradiction in adjecto. When one starts bad, and deny it, it can only get worse!

Europe Is Dead, Long Live Europe! And long live US publicly subsidized Pluto universities, too!

March 29, 2017

45 years ago Britain was a member of what became formally later the “European Union”. However, anti-Europeans in Britain, mostly on the so-called left (“Labor”) screamed that a referendum should have been conducted to see whether the British People really wanted to be part of Europe. The matter should not having been left to Parliament. One of these screamers presently leads the British Labor Party (Corbyn).

So a law was passed by the UK Parliament, saying that a referendum on belonging to Europe would happen, and would have force of law. Once again, 45 years ago. (NOT last year!) The referendum was conducted, and nearly two-third of British People approved that the UK should be in Europe.

In the meantime, Thatcherism happened. PM Thatcher, a strident nationalist, actually passed the Single European Act (SEA). SEA reformed the legislative process all over Europe by introducing the cooperation procedure and by extending the Qualified Majority Voting to new areas. The legislative process was also quickened. The SEA was supposed to create a better Single European market. Meanwhile, Great britain became ever more inequalitarian.

The British Are Most Enraged, Because Their Society Is Most Unequal.

So now here we are, and Great Britain wants out of Europe… But not out of the European Single market. That’s a complete contradiction. Indeed, understand that the obstacles to the single market are not tariffs: the WTO limits those to 3%… The obstacles have to do with laws and regulations, hence the necessity for the SEA. The point is that if one wants a single market, one has to have laws which are in common enough.

British PM May evoked Article 50, setting the exit of Britain from the EU within 2 years.

[In fairness, let’s give PM May a word sideways here. PM May tried to strike a firm but conciliatory tone, in her letter to Donald Tusk, president of the EU, declaring that the Brexit vote

was no rejection of the values we share as fellow Europeans. Nor was it an attempt to do harm to the European Union or any of the remaining member states. On the contrary, the United Kingdom wants the European Union to succeed and prosper. Instead, the referendum was a vote to restore, as we see it, our national self-determination. We are leaving the European Union, but we are not leaving Europe – and we want to remain committed partners and allies to our friends across the continent.“]

With all due respect, that’s just PC hogwash. To start with it hurts. Secondly, there is an amount of 60 billion dollars in committed EU projects that the UK is committed to finance. Secondly, to access the European Single Market, the UK will have to respect EU law, and pay for the EU infrastructure, just as Norway (or Switzerland) do.

So what happened? Plutocracy, that’s what. Plutocracy owns the media, and felt threatened by the EU government. Plutocracy depends upon tax evasion and (“elected”) government manipulation (and the more than 17 “crown dependencies, part of UK which are tax havens).

Plutocracy rules by mental manipulation. Example: look at the Ivy League universities in the USA. They are the elite universities where the children of the elite get together, live together, plot together, and get instructed on how the manipulate the naive rabble they are expected, and expecting to rule and exploit.

The Ivy League comprises eight campuses: Dartmouth, Columbia, Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Brown, Cornell, Penn have a combined 191 billion dollars in endowment. They got 41 billion in 6 years from US, and paid no tax on their profits (which should have been 9,6 billion dollars, too!

(Of course Obama went to Columbia and then Harvard; in Columbia Obama met ZBig, the guy who make Carter to attack formally Afghanistan on July 3, 1979… ZBig saw in Obama the ideal vehicle to pursue the Pluto empire…)

Average parents pay $33,000 a year for private universities , and $9,000 for public universities.  

Is there hope? Some of the buffoons are becoming more aware. Richard Dreyfus was one of the fanatics who voted for Hillary Clinton, campaigned against Trump, and ignored Bernie Sanders (as he readily admits; Sanders would have beaten Trump is the democrats had selected him, studies have shown). Now he is against Hillary. Why? He discovered she was “for Wall Street”. Hillary went to San Francisco, all dressed in black leather:”insist, persist, resist!” Actually she is pushing her latest book.

Still No Message Of Any Substance, that’s why people who voted for Obama, in a last burst of hope, in 2012, voted for Trump in 2016, in the crucial states, the famed “Blue Wall”.

The Brexit vote rested on an arsenal of lies, imparted to the minds of British voters by the Plutocratic media. Basically, all is false, therein.

Also the vote itself was fraudulent, as it was supposed to be just a “consultation”, not legislating. No worries: Great Britain is not really a democracy, but a rule of one (mono-archy).   

So what’s next? We will see. London did its best to sabotage the EU for decades, and it’s just more of the same. A few months ago, Teresa May threaten to turn the UK into a “tax haven”. That’s of course disinformation: the UK is already a tax haven, and that’s why real estate has never been so expensive in London, the most expensive real estate in the world, by far. Plutocrats from the entire planet are flocking to London, knowing full well that the British government has no choice, but keeping on playing the Plutocratic card…

The fact that the USA’s richest universities are getting positively enormous subsidies is revealing that, once one has captured the minds of the idiots, even in democracy, especially in democracy, one can get away with anything. A Manchurian candidate made it to the presidency for 8 years, and now the Wall Street “opposition” keeps on capturing the hearts and minds of the fake left. Alleluia!

And what of Europe? Same problem, plus a deer-in-the-headlights syndrome. As long as progressives have not figured out in which direction progress lays, the likes of may will rule, complete with leopard shoes high heels, just to make sure she overlords all the uneducated out there… Her “Brexit” has no meaning, and she knows it, but the lords she serves, the world plutocrats have no meaning either, all they want is ever more prerogatives… And they don’t intent to jump off the gravy train, anymore than president Putin and PM Medvedev in Russia. Massive demonstrations there have exposed the latter as the face of state corruption in Russia (his enormous palaces, for example next to Sochi have long been notorious; a bat researcher was emprisoned for taking pictures of Medvedev’s palace there, and protesting the destruction of bat caves next to it; ultimaterly he had to flee Russia to the UK…)

One may wonder why this global plutocracy problem seems so much alike all around the planet. It is simple: the democracy we have is NOT the real thing. The ideal of democracy we have (as espoused by Russia) is NOT the real thing. Clinton-Bush-Obama, this triple head hydra is the same problem as Putin. Basically. It does not matter if it’s Russia, or California.

Real democracy should be about We The People ruling directly, as much as possible. Instead, what we have is a parody of democracy. Brexit is the poster child of this absurdity: although there was a referendum, it was all about lies. The referendum was conducted in a sea of lies, under fake assumptions, and false pretense. So now Britain is going to spend, and waste, Europe’s time for the next ten years of its convoluted, unending Brexiting… Before asking to go back in, supposing in ever leaves, which is not really the plan.

The real plan is to make the British National Health Service a new source of profit for the US health “care” industry. Oh, by the way, do you know how many people are enrolled in “Obamacare”? Eleven millions. Another nine millions are truly in Medicare. Meanwhile, the subsidies to the health care for profit industry, just as the subsidies for US plutocratic universities, have much augmented. Alleluia! We may as well have fun, watching plutocrats soar into orbit.

Just to make sure we get the picture, British PM May wants us to know she is completely mad. On day first of the Brexit negotiations she let it be known that if the European Union will not submit, she will let terrorists do their thing to Europe. May’s words insist that there is an implied threat, the prime minister’s letter being explicit. “In security terms, a failure to reach agreement [with the EU] would mean our cooperation in the fight against crime and terrorism would be weakened,” she wrote.

It does matter that PM May personally lacks credibility. That’s the whole point: plutocracy will make people do, and submit to, incredible things. Reason is in the way, so it should be disposed of.

PC = Political Correctness = PERFECTLY CLOSED Minds

March 12, 2017

PC, Perfectly Closed Intellectual Fascism, key to total civilizational collapse…

“Politically Correct” is a euphemism for “Perfectly Closed”:

In first approach, PC consists in a set of taboos, places where one should never go mentally. For example, if one evokes colonialism or slavery, the PC crowd bleats: condemn Europe. Never mind the fact that Europe was the only slave-free place in the world, then. PC is not about facts, logic. It’s about what makes the powers that be feel good about you, and you can join the mass of sheep, and happily bleat together.

SDM, a commenter on this site, asked: “What exactly do you consider to be PC? you seem to be all over the place without defining your terms.” There are many definitions of “PC” (see Wikipedia on the subject). Here is mine: PC = PERFECTLY CLOSED [MIND].

My definition of Political Correctness is maximal, as general as possible. The beauty, and power, of generalization is something one learns by studying modern mathematics: Generalizing simplifies. Ever since Cardano, a surgeon, took square roots of negative numbers in the 16th Century, mathematics has been generalizing.

“PC”, usually the abbreviation for “Politically Correct”, is, in truth, the exact opposite: “Political Correctness” is extremely detrimental to the Polis…For very deep, neurological, and physical reasons, the “Politically Correct” is an addictive drug, which brings quickly the fall of the polis that it pretends to protect.

***

PC censored minds are closed to what opens the world of understanding, debate: What is the interest of that? Who profits from the crime?

As usual, as Nietzsche would tell you, one has to distinguish the interest of the masters from that of the slaves, just as one has to distinguish the morality of the slaves and the morality of the masters.

Closed minds have fewer dimensions, they are easy to rule. They offer stable homes for intellectual fascism. The PC doctrine is one of the oldest tricks of the greatest dictators. In the past, violating it often meant death.

In Europe and the Middle Earth, for more than a millennium, “Politically Correct” meant being a (well-behaved) Christian or a Muslim. That correctness was enforced by the death penalty (laws of emperor Theodosius against heresy (390 CE), and Muhammad, emperor of Arabia, starting around 630 CE, for disrespect against Islam.)

*** 

Intellectual Fascism Costs Less and Attack More! Real Thinking goes in all directions. Intellectual Fascism entertains just a few. The simplest, most hare-brained tribalism unites the empire around these few ideas. The most intelligent empires, like the Athenian empire, enact just the exact opposite.

PC forces to focus on what should be non-subjects.

For example, Europe and its presumed culpability about slavery: Europe outlawed slavery in 650 CE, nearly 14 centuries ago.  (European colons, far from the arm of European law, reintroduced slavery, mostly because it was the usage all over, outside of Europe.)

Examples of non-subject and disinformation: the very word “antisemitism” (by which is meant “anti-judaism”). US and EU media love to accuse everybody they don’t like of “antisemitism”(for example Trump was accused of antisemitism, when his closest family is Jewish; in France opponents of Emmanuel Macron are accused of “antisemitism”… even though Macron is not Jewish).

The Politically Correct obsession enables the pseudo-left to pontificate about red herrings. And thus to avoid the important subjects, the simple evocation of which would endanger the plutocracy.

The case of Islam is typical : Islam is an ideology which orders to kill many categories of people. Such preaching should be subjected to the same penalties as if a Nazi were doing it. Instead, and although Islamists and Nazis were allied in World War Two, one is, mysteriously, accused of “racism” if one fears Islam.

The mystery is part of the indoctrination. As people are made to ponder pseudo-mysteries elaborated precisely to mystify them,  all and any genuine progress on important subjects is avoided.

Hurling insults such as “racist” and “antisemite”, “colonialist” prevents We The People to be even aware that one should be passionate about such subjects such as HIGH FREQUENCY TRADING.

Why? Because high frequency trading  is one of the ways the plutocracy uses to become ever more powerful, year after year. Abuse such as high frequency trading is today’s slavery, today’s colonialism (colonizing the world). But if all what people worry about is slow slave trading two centuries ago, they don’t have the mental space to know even of the existence of high frequency trading.

***

“Political Correctness” is nothing new: it has existed ever since there were dictators, and that’s how they ruled:

Ruling over the Polis, implies forbidding We The Sheeple to have inadmissible thoughts, or broaching some taboo subjects. The very fact that the pseudo-left has embraced Political Correctness demonstrates that their mannerism is just a travesty of plutocracy. Shame on them!

By excluding from debates entire subjects, the Jihadists of wealth, the PC whip masters, prevent the analysis of the exploitation schemes plutocracy organizes. (This is not an outrageous analogy. Real Islamist Jihadists worked real hard for the US fracking industry, by forcing the price of oil at extravagant level for those years where fracking rigs were paid for, built, and deployed in the USA; I am not choosing my words at random. It’s hilarious to realize that those who died screaming Alluha Akbar, God is Great, died for US oil men and their co-conspirators… GIs, who were also killed and maimed, may find this less hilarious. What I just wrote is highly Politically Incorrect, of course, as are all serious truths not previously revealed…)

***  

Intellectual Fascism: it deserves its own essay. Political fascism arises from Ethological Fascism, the fact that social animals fight better when they ACT as a super-organism (the mass with the greatest mass wins, even hyenas versus lions).

Excluding entire subjects from debate closes the minds to external influences. That stabilizes the Intellectual Fascism. A fascist mind needs to be protected from exterior influences.

An open mind does not need to be protected. By definition, an open mind is open to all influences.

Mental, and Intellectual fascisms proceed of an even more general principle, the Principle of Least Action. Brains try to do as little as possible, so adopting others’ ideas is all the more irresistible, when they come from one’s superiors.

***

Tribalism rests most economically, most stupidly, upon Political Correctness:

Aspasia was a philosopher who wrote the best speeches of her husband, Pericles. She promoted the “Open Society”, the exact opposite of “Political Correctness” (“We throw our city open to the world”). Thus she was put on trial on a number of charges, including , of course, “impiety”.

Impiety? Tribalism is the basic religion. Always has, always will be. It defines the “Politically Correct”, what one has to believe rather than explain.

***

Those who rule, rule best, when they rule over the minds of their slaves, training them like dogs. This is what “Political Correctness” does. PC is the melodious barking of those dogs. Always has been, always will be. Instead, really philosophy is a discordance.

Even if, at some point of history a Polis (City-State in Greek; by generalization a nation, or empire) had achieved perfect morality (and this never happened), this would have been unsustainable. Politics is always geometrodynamics, because so is the environment. And it’s nonlinear, because it self-interacts, be it only through the ecology which it ravages  

Civilization is never a closed box, as it bursts, Plus Ultra, through all the bounds, even if successful, especially if successful. Political Correctness.  

Calling things by the opposite of what they are is the basis of deception. See the “Affordable Care Act” (The ACA did not have much cost control of the world’s most expensive health care; thus some of the world’s greatest plutocrats supported it, just as they support Brexit, for the same exact reason: augmenting their power).

By calling things by the opposite of what they are, way the sheeple cannot suspect the enormity of the lie, as Adolf Hitler explained in detail in his famous book “Mein Kampf”. This has long been used by US plutocratically owned media (my own “Mediating Pluto” from 2013, explains why the New York Times has banned me).

Examples of mislabelling abound: “Catholicism” means “Universalism” (in Greek): yet the “Catholics” immediately proceeded to exterminate any understanding of the world beyond their Qur’an (Qur’an means “recitation” in Arabic. So my usage here is not just biting irony, but translating in Arabic Catholic practice. Actually “Islam” is pretty much “Catholicism” translated in Arabic, for the desert).

Similarly “Communism” was the opposite of what happened with Stalinism and Maoism, or “National-Socialism” just the opposite of what it claimed to be, as it was revealed to be anti-national, and anti-socialist. Much of what is called “capitalism” and “liberalism” right now is neither.  

***

Worrying about Political Correctness, is even older than Socrates’ murky drama. The case of Socrates shows, indeed, a dearth of PC can bring death and become criminal (Socrates was condemned to death for “corrupting the youth”: his students and lovers, 50 years younger than him, were central to the near-annihilation of Athens in Peloponnesian War, and Socrates was obstinately democidal, a tradition Plato and Aristotle pursued until the official subjection of Athens to Macedonian overviewed plutocracy).

In March 1968,  Michel Foucault, a psychiatrically trained French philosopher, said: “a political thought can be politically correct (‘politiquement correcte’) only if it is scientifically painstaking“. So the term actually originated in France. Only if it scientifically proven, painstakingly. ONLY IF!

In May 1991, at a commencement ceremony for a graduating class of the University of Michigan, then U.S. President George H.W. Bush excoriated Political Correctness  in his speech: “The notion of political correctness has ignited controversy across the land. And although the movement arises from the laudable desire to sweep away the debris of racism and sexism and hatred, it replaces old prejudice with new ones. It declares certain topics off-limits, certain expression off-limits, even certain gestures off-limits.”

(I officially hate Prescott Bush, H.W.’s father, a criminal-against humanity from his extreme collaboration with Adolf Hitler, and I despise W. Bush, another criminal against humanity, for his fracking-promoting invasion of Iraq; but I respect H. W. Bush, the navy’s youngest pilot, he had cheated to enroll… H. W. Bush would have never dismantled FDR’s Banking Act of 1933, as Bill Clinton and his goons did)

Earlier Blum had written “The Closing Of The American Mind” (1987; I bought the book, but didn’t read it really very much, too boring and too…closed)

Seen my way, Political Correctness, this Perfect Closure, is closely tied to Intellectual Fascism ( a precursor of, but much more general than, political fascism).

***

Political Correctness, Perfect Closure makes Intellectual Fascism not only possible, but sustainable. However, Intellectual Fascism, by reducing intelligence, makes the Polis, the City, the Nation, the Empire, Civilization, even less sustainable than Political Fascism does.

Many civilizations went on, sometimes for millennia, as Political Fascism: the obvious example are muscular, well-organized empires such as Egypt and China (although “China” was often several). However, when either engaged in Intellectual Fascism (having not enough correct, fresh ideas), they quickly went down.

Europe after the collapse of Athens under Macedonia, knew hope for real democracy with the Roman Republic, which had very strong anti-plutocratic laws. However, once those were removed, de facto, from globalization (circa 150 CE), Rome survived as a Republic In Name Only (RINO).

Intellectual Fascism is self-amplifying: hence emperor Theodosius anti-heresy laws of 390 CE made the empire collapse in a few years. Within ten years, the bishops who governed the empire gave power to the Franks, in the North-West, as they had no ideas, no choice, no money, no army, and neither the taste nor capability to do what their government of bishops needed to do.

The Franks, a recently unified confederation of Dutch (or ‘lower Germans’), legislated under a law written for them by Roman lawyer-generals, brought back tolerance for diversified people and their variegated ideas by clamping down on Jihad Christianism.

Since then Europe clamped down enough on Intellectual Fascism to produce mental progress. 

But full democracy a la Athens, 25 centuries ago, has not been re-established. Worse: the Politically Correct resurfacing today, is reminiscent of the monks dressed all in black who destroyed thinkers and their books, around 400 CE (especially in places such as Egypt).  Those monks in black were the main cause of the Dark Ages.  

While we are supposed to vilify Europe for all it did not really do, and certainly for a very long time, there is a New Force on Wall Street: The ‘Family Office’, reveals the Wall Street Journal:
‘Clans with nine-figure fortunes are increasingly investing through unregulated firms known as family offices, impinging on the business of investment banking and private equity.’ It turns out that they conspire…

“On a warm October day in 2014, envoys from 15 of America’s wealthiest families gathered at Circle T, Ross Perot Jr.’s 2,500-acre ranch outside Dallas. Skeet-shooting was on the agenda, but the real purpose of the two-day retreat was for the families to get acquainted and eventually team up to pursue investments.

From that exclusive gathering, attended by people investing the fortunes of Michael Bloomberg and other billionaires, sprang a broader network of 150 families that have since participated in more than 10 deals together, including acquisitions.

Such transactions traditionally were the province of big companies or private-equity firms. But a disruptive force has emerged on Wall Street: the family office. These entities, set up to manage the fortunes of the wealthy, and able to operate under the radar, are making their presence felt with their growing numbers, fat wallets and hunger for deals.”

Meanwhile the PC cultural retards don’t have any notion of the preceding, busy as they are calling everybody a racist, not knowing that it was exactly what the Nazis were doing during their ascent (more bad news for the PC crowd: the Nazis were very loudly defending minority rights, the environment and the rights of animals. Hitler was a vegetarian; all of this PC distractions deliberately planted to make the German people lose sight of what was essential…)

The reign of the non-censored Internet gives hope, though. Now at last, and at least, we can debate, no holds barred, a few squeaks in the darkness… While our masters laugh, martinis in hand, watching the sun set from their private islands, secure from their vast conspiracies, protected by their private armies, jetting around in their private jet fleets, as the little ones down there are calling each other names…

Scourge of PC Plutocratically Driven

March 9, 2017

Political Correctness has ruled the West for decades. It was a crime against thought, and civilization alike. It profited those who wanted to turn us into insects. Tellingly, so-called “liberals” (in the US) and progressives (elsewhere) feel that PC makes them just, moral, and strong. They have a point: the heavy chains slaves carry around, make them stronger (in a most demeaning sense). Political Correctness was a plot to make us all stupid and nasty, because stupid nastiness shared with all, is how plutocracy rules.

Brexit is the most striking example of PC gone all the way: it was alleged that the very idea of European Union was anti-democratic, and that the union had to be destroyed, for democracy’s sake (in truth, it was quite the opposite: plutocracy had penetrated the Union, but that plutocratic attack was pretty much directed from the City of London, a plutocracy (technically) and its many supports, admirers and co-conspirators…). The pretend the Union was intrinsically anti-democratic was a huge fraud, conducted in the name of democracy, and, of course, to serve the same old masters. After faking opposition to it, while conducting an extremely ineffective campaign against it, the entire British plutocracy lined up behind Brexit (even though technically the referendum was just “consultative” when conducted. Parliament decided it had force of law the following year! (If We The People had known it had force of law, We The People would have voted for “Remain”: it was sheer constitutional fraud!)

English Harbored Plutocrats Have Molded Minds, Through Media and Universities, For Brexit, Hoping To Avoid Potential EU Socialism By Making Britain Into A Giant Tax Haven and Pluto Paradise, Just Off Shore…

Not to say that the EU itself has not become a gigantic Pluto fraud. But the EU itself is governed by the national governments (thus the British government, which can pretty much veto anything important it does not like the EU to do). That was one of the many frauds hidden from the gullible British public…

***

Here is an example in The Independent, UK:

Brexit is not the high point of democracy – it’s the greatest fraud ever perpetrated in British politics:
“An irate local farmer told me he voted to leave as a protest against EU bureaucracy that delayed payments of his subsidies. He thought Defra was an EU department. He didn’t realise it was The Department for Rural Affairs and that the EU had fined our governmental department for its incompetent administration of subsidies.

No matter, we got our country back, even if it means losing the subsidies and keeping the incompetence.

British farmers received £2.4bn last year in EU payments and the National Farrmers’ Union has already warned that many farms would fail without these handouts.

Importantly, EU membership already has built-in border controls under the “right to reside” test. This provides conditions to entry, such as having a job or being financially self-sufficient. There are no immediate, automatic entitlements to benefits, which require further conditions. Most other EU states impose these controls rigorously but the UK has been less assiduous in their implementation.

There was no mandate to leave the single market, sell off the NHS to US private health insurers or to turn the UK into a tax haven. Brexit has divided the nation. For Theresa May to unite the country she must heal wounds and take the public with her.

As Churchill said, “Never give in – never, never, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense”. Brexit is neither, so I shan’t be giving in anytime soon.”

***

The Trump-Clinton dust-up was another example of fraud: Hillary was basically campaigning, she claimed, against (some) consequences of her own husband policies (which were an extension of those of Nixon-Reagan; Nixon himself was the architect of McCarthyism, and, sure enough, the cultural inheritance of the Clintons, coming straight from Nixon, has been revived, as ludicrously, Clinton promoters have revived McCarthyism… to disguise the fact they have no new ideas since Nixon in 1950).

***

The Politically Correct was a Perfect Con instigated by Plutocratic Conspirators. PC ^3.

Being trumped by Trump is just deserts for the brainless pigeons who supported the mindset the plutocratically owned press, media, universities, courts, deep state, pseudo-intellectuals, politicians and legislators endowed them with.

The weapons we need are deeper, more powerful ideas. Don’t expect them from the bleating sheep, and its meek heroes.

Expect the stronger ideas which will forge a better future to come from fiercer debate, where truth is told to those who have avoided it religiously.

Relative to the main course which is needed, old firebrands such as Michel Foucault or Camille Paglia are not even appetizers for hungry, rebelling minds. We need to devour the feeble-minded, and relish in that salubrious activity, be it only on moral grounds.

To want to devour the feeble-minded, we first need to throw Political Correctness to the winds…

No, I am not copying Donald Trump: “Devouring the Feeble Minded” was the old slogan of my ancient Tyranosopher site.

Mental progress has always devoured the feeble-mindedness of the present, let alone the idiocies of the past. Political Correctness, also known as mental fascism, has always been in the way…

Trump Attacks Establishment

January 22, 2017

At least with his lips… Media Plutocracy Outraged 

Once upon a time in Oahu, president-elect Obama, standing a foot away, invited me to a family event. What happened next I will reveal fully in the far future.  Let me put it succinctly: other actors surprised us with a vicious little plot to turn the invitation into a deep trauma for all involved. Such is the pull of power lust. Such is the greed of the establishment. I thought I had seen everything before, still I was astounded, completely unprepared. Eight years later I am still baffled. (Several divorces came out of it, BTW.)

Chris Hedges, long a star, Pulitzer winning, journalist at the New York Times points out in his latest book, that the Pulitzer is completely rigged by the New York Times itself (by financing the advisor, the Columbia School of Journalism). Wikipedia crows that the “NYT won 117 Pulitzer prizes more than any news organization”. This self-reinforcing glorification is typical of the way the establishment works: by rigging carefully the entire system (the Sulzberger family controlling the Times since 1896; recently government connected Mexican tycoon Carlos Slims became top shareholder, excluding him from NYT criticism; Sulzberger, Cohen and other plutocrats maintain control of the Class B shares, which have full voting power; the Mexican peon, a crony capitalist from Mexico, who bought Mexican Telecom on the cheap, thanks to his friends in government, is restricted to Class A shares, enabling New York plutocrats to keep control).

In other words, those who breathe New York Times, breathe plutocracy, and no wonder I am banned from it. The Deepest State is made by these plutocrats. Unfortunately for them, one of their own has gone to the other side. 

Raised Fist, Big Red Flag of a Tie: Lenin Is Back, But Through An Election This Time!

Open Jacket, Raised Fist, Big Red Flag of a Tie: It Looks As If Lenin Is Back, But Through An Election This Time!

Trump was born and raised in the (financial core of the) establishment: first on the periphery, then at its heart, for decades (he admitted this himself explicitly). More than a year ago, he presented himself as a demolisher of said establishment. That was fully confirmed by his inaugural speech.

Haters for hire will howl, according to their nature. However history is full of rebellious plutocrats which turned against the plutocracy they came from. One could even say that this is the most frequent mechanism for real change.

Cleisthenes, the top Athenian plutocrat, from the top family, the Alcmaeonid, plotted extensively against the Athenian tyranny, got Sparta to invade, twice, and finally took power, just to feel that there was no alternative, but total democracy. And then he installed democracy, a democracy so total that tiny Athens became one of the greatest contributor to civilization, ever. (Cleisthenes called his reforms isonomia, “equality vis à vis law”, iso-=equality; nomos=law… not demokratia…) 

Here is the entire transcript below of Trump’s inaugural speech, with key portions pointed out in various ways: all caps, highlighted and commented.

TRUMP: Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans and PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, thank you.

[Patrice comment: notice Trump did not forget We the People of the WORLD! So much for his alleged xenophobia… which could not resist Melania’s thick Germanoid accent…]

Original Internationale: Lenin Grabbed the French “l’Internationale” and made it the USSR’s anthem.

Original Internationale: Lenin Grabbed the French “l’Internationale” and made it the USSR’s anthem.

(APPLAUSE) Trump: “We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people. (APPLAUSE)

Together, we will determine the course of America and the WORLD for many, many years to come. We will face challenges, we will confront hardships, but we will get the job done.

Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Thank you. (APPLAUSE)

[Patrice: So much for Trump being a racist pig, as the haters have contended; Hitler did not find “blacks” extra magnificent; Hitler did not salute “blacks”.]

TRUMP: “Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning because today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people. (APPLAUSE)

For too long, A SMALL GROUP IN OUR NATION’S CAPITAL HAS REAPED THE REWARDS OF GOVERNMENT WHILE THE PEOPLE HAVE BORNE THE COST. WASHINGTON FLOURISHED, BUT THE PEOPLE DID NOT SHARE IN ITS WEALTH. POLITICIANS PROSPERED, BUT THE JOBS LEFT AND THE FACTORIES CLOSED. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. (APPLAUSE)

[Patrice: This is the “populist” point of view. “We The People”. DEMOS-KRATOS = PEOPLE-POWER. Power to People. The first (and nearly last) democracy, for real (among males) was Athens. Athens’ democracy was a gigantic success in nearly all ways, including driving Athens completely crazy. As a result, Athens’ democracy ultimately failed, and “democracy” became a dirty word for more than two millennia. A similar evolution affected Rome, yet, in slower motion. It is striking that “populist” is viewed as an insult by most Main Stream Media. It is astounding that the clueless little people do not realize that, when they vilify “populism”, they vilify themselves; US “celebrities”, who are paid outrageous amounts of money and power, are besides themselves as the fat rats they are, deep in the establishment cheese.]

Trump again:“That all changes starting right here and right now because this moment is your moment, it belongs to you. (APPLAUSE). It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country.” (APPLAUSE)

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether OUR GOVERNMENT IS CONTROLLED BY THE PEOPLE. (APPLAUSE)

[Patrice comment: This is in total contradiction of the “small government” theme of the traditional conservatives. In other words, Trump, long a registered Democrat and a supporter of the Democratic Party with millions of dollars (up to 2010!), is still, well, if not a Democrat, certainly a democrat!]

Trump: “January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the PEOPLE BECAME THE RULERS of this nation again.(APPLAUSE) The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. (APPLAUSE) Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before. (APPLAUSE)

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction, that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public.

But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge; and the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.

THIS AMERICAN CARNAGE STOPS RIGHT HERE AND STOPS RIGHT NOW. (APPLAUSE) We are one nation and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams. And their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny. The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.(APPLAUSE)

[Comment: Trump has dreams, we all have dreams, like Martin Luther King had a dream…]

Trump: “For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries, while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military. We’ve defended other nations’ borders while refusing to defend our own.(APPLAUSE)

And spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay. We’ve made other countries rich, while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind. The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world.

But that is the past. And now, we are looking only to the future. (APPLAUSE)

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first. (APPLAUSE)

[Patrice comment: what happened to plutocracy first? No wonder the news organizations, all of which are owned, or, if not outright owned, controlled by plutocrats

Trump: “Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.” (APPLAUSE)

Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you with every breath in my body and I will never ever let you down. (APPLAUSE) America will start winning again, winning like never before.(APPLAUSE)

We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams. (APPLAUSE)

We will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our wonderful nation. We will get our people off of welfare and back to work, rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor. (APPLAUSE)

[This is a BIG GOVERNMENT program, in complete contradiction to anything done since Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. Trump is asking for one trillion dollars, right away, for that infrastructure program.]

Trump: “We will follow two simple rules; buy American and hire American. (APPLAUSE)

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example. We will shine for everyone to follow. (APPLAUSE)

We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and UNITE THE CIVILIZED WORLD AGAINST RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM, WHICH WE WILL ERADICATE FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH. (APPLAUSE)

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other. WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR HEART TO PATRIOTISM, THERE IS NO ROOM FOR PREJUDICE(APPLAUSE)

The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable. (APPLAUSE) There should be no fear. We are protected and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God. (APPLAUSE) Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving. We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining, but never doing anything about it. (APPLAUSE) The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action. (APPLAUSE)

Do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America. We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to UNLOCK THE MYSTERIES OF SPACE, TO FREE THE EARTH FROM THE MISERIES OF DISEASE, AND TO HARNESS THE ENERGIES, INDUSTRIES AND TECHNOLOGIES OF TOMORROW. A new national pride will stir ourselves, lift our sights and heal our divisions.

[Patrice: Advancing science and technology is the way out. Right now, it takes 50 million dollars and ten years for a potential new drug to go through the government review process. That’s 20 times too much, As a result of the present situation, there are fewer and fewer new drugs. Miracle new drugs, already demonstrated, are completely blocked. Hey, Obama, Michelle and their friends are young and healthy: why should have they cared?]

Trump: “It’s time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget, that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots. (APPLAUSE)

{Patrice comment: I have been called a “racist troll” publicly, for a readership of thousands, by the vile haters out there. Are those from the same mindset which called Trump a racist? But is not racist the one who calls “racist” who is not racist?]

Trump: “We all enjoy the same glorious freedoms and we all salute the same great American flag. (APPLAUSE) And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the wind-swept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they will their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty creator.(APPLAUSE)

So to all Americans in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, from ocean to ocean, hear these words: You will never be ignored again.

(APPLAUSE) Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Together, we will make America strong again. We will make America wealthy again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And yes, together we will make America great again. (APPLAUSE) Thank you. God bless you. And God bless America.

***

All right, I don’t like the God stuff, which reminds me all too much of Obama’s cynical down speaking to the masses. Why could not the secular Trump say:’”bless you. And bless America?” But for the rest, well, I love the combative attack against the establishment.

Obama left for a weekend in Palm Springs, to visit with some of his plutocrat friends whom he made ambassadors. Obama travelled in style, with Air Force One, the giant 747 jumbo jet specially modified by Boeing. As Obama was not president anymore, the plane had a different code name. Operating that jet made to carry 450, costs more than $200,000 an hour. Palm Springs is surrounded by colossal, and magnificent mountains towering nearly two miles higher, some of them covered with forests, lower ones with high altitude desert. The San Andrea fault strikes a straight, highly visible, tumultuous line along the valley. It is one of Earth’s most spectacular places. Yet, it was raining on Obama’s parade. The mighty jet went into a holding pattern, for half an hour. It then had to land one hundred kilometers away. A lesson: Earth is indifferent to human self-importance. That monopolizing a jumbo jet just for himself was Obama’s first post-presidential gesture tells volumes which no philosopher should like.

Over three Christmas, the Hawaiian Obama vacation cost 15 million dollars, in transportation costs, alone. But who is counting? Giant monopolies protected by the globalocracy owe trillions in taxes to We The People, and small businesses. None of the loud mouths of the establishment care (they established it that way).

We are living in the times of the greatest perils, and the greatest potential. And whenever the establishment is in the way, of vital progress we need to make to survive, it should be disintegrated.

And it’s not just empty words: for example the desert, next to Obama’s Palm Springs, can generate colossal amounts of energy (wind, photovoltaics). But then the energy has to be transported. Direct Current High Voltage line is the way to do that. They have to be constructed, at great cost. A big government task. China is doing it (the Changji-Guquan link under construction will carry half the generating power of Spain, and is charged at more than one million volts). But then China has its own space station, which neither Europe nor the US has (the ISS, is not called the International Space Station for no reason, and it’s a great thing… yet it’s symptomatic that Europe and the US think they can’t afford space, let alone science: a 100 meter telescope should be under construction right now; it would (re)solve not just exoplanets, but maybe Quantum Physics; it’s technically feasible, and not that expensive, compared to an hour of Obama).

Thinking, thinking deep, thinking deeper is hard, harder. Nobody protested eight years ago. My despair was not shared, when I saw all the plutocrats and their sycophants making a wall around Obama, sucking even his air, and any single thought. What was going on was clear. How come was I the only one to see it? Much of it was public knowledge, where were the protesters? They could, they should, have helped.

The political establishment had to play the game, and nearly all of it was at Trump’s inauguration, including Clinton. The one notable exception was John Kerry, and it’s not because he is bilingual in French. It is because he is the richest politician in the US (short of Trump!) Kerry had to choose between country and class. He chose the plutocracy.

Thinking creatively, or just correctly, is difficult.

Enough with the insults, lazy little critters, off to work. And work, first of all, requires deep thinking, not “just saying”.
