Must Win World War Of Plutocracy Against Democracy

June 5, 2022

The nuclear tyranny in Moscow is the sort of regime civilization cannot share the planet with: to conquer land it fancied, Putin threatened “any country which intervened with consequences you have never seen in your history”

To surrender to the threat of the usage of nuclear weapons from one’s opponent after first resisting a war of conquest, is worse than surrendering to any previous tyranny in history. Indeed no tyranny in history had the means to destroy humanity, nor expressed the explicit desire to do so as Putin and his accomplices did.

What is democracy? The attempt by civilization to set people free from oligarchy (the rule of the few). What is plutocracy? Literally, hell-power. Oligarchies aren’t sustainable, without  calling upon evil power, because people are not made to be slaves, and they increasingly resist (inside the dictatorship, or outside).

Historical dictators are in general proof of this turn to hell-power: their methods get worse with time,  until they get destroyed.

Civilization was rendered possible by power, but, without democracy, that power can exponentiate in the hands of a few, who then, absolutely corrupted by power, will use ever more evil methods until they become so stupid, they are finally destroyed.

Nuclear energy and other new powerful tech made oligarchs more powerful than ever, and the plutocratic culmination it brings to the planet is so dangerous that civilization will not be able to survive it.

Only democracy makes civilization sustainable. Giving Putin a reward, any reward, for his evil ways invites future dictators to be even worse with threats of nuclear war. 

Because Putin threatened civilization explicitly with annihilation is the ultimate crime. This is why he and his mentality must be destroyed. Nuclear war will not be avoided by doing what those who threaten it want democracies to do. Our survival requires punishment.

Star Fish nuclear explosion at 11 pm, fifteen seconds after detonation over Johnson Island as seen from Maui at on top of the volcano, at 3,000 meter elevation, 1200 kilometers away. The nuke was exploded 400kms above ground, in space, instantaneously shutting down much electronics in Hawaii from E-M blast..

P/S: A shorter version of the comment above replied to a NYT editorial calling to surrender Ukraine to Putin. My comment, mostly what is above, was carefully censored. Now traitor president Macron of France, apparently a small greedy mind, called to once again for the victory of Putin (not as something that he wishes, but as something that he, and his German sidekick, Chancellor Olaf Scholtz see as ineluctable… while pointing out, in complete contradiction, that Putin should not be humiliated (if Putin can’t be defeated, how could he be humiliated?) I was deeply irritated by the NYT censorship, so I sent another comment, which was published immediately… I will show this one next, because it encapsulate the problem.

US Pluto Media Pretends to Worry About French “Right” 

April 8, 2022

And what if the “Right” was right, and, to put it in one horrendous word, popular… Also known as “populist”. In Hungary, Orban “right wing” party won the legislative elections, for the fourth time in a row, with 54%… (Lest I be accused of being pro-Orban, just from observing reality, let me point out that Orban said, after his re-election, that Zelinskyy was an “opponent”… I am definitely pro-Zelinskyy)

The French extreme right, on the big practical items is left of the US extrme left…Why is US media so worried about the French “extreme right”?

The short of it: because France is a welfare state owned by oligarchs, who are busy destroying the middle class and even the lower class, in the same way as it was done in Russia between over centuries, until most Russians became “serfs” under Catherine II “the Great” Best way to optimize plutocracy! (The distant ancestors of these serfs, six centuries earlier, used to be free.) The same Catherine conquered Ukraine, Poland, the Baltic countries, etc…

The following comment to the article The Man at the Center of the French Election Isn’t Even on the Ballot, April 7, 2022… was censored by the New York Times [1]: 

The French extreme right is on the left of the US left. It does not want to weaken the French welfare state with free healthcare, free education, all the way to professional degrees, free medical drugs. The existing French welfare state can indeed be abused. As a partly overseas French, I had to pay for the (difficult, by mandatory C section) birth of my (French) daughter, more than ten thousand dollars. The Albanian woman next door didn’t pay a dime. She had entered France, as many do, on the last day of her pregnancy, and was driven by ambulance from the border with Italy as is the usage of the French border police. Now her child was French, and she was free to go back to Albania (which is not in the EU). This is typical, very frequent, and one of the many ways in which the French welfare state has been abused.

Another is male Africans with many wives, gathering welfare checks from their many claimed children.  

In exchange for all this, the abusers of the French welfare state claim to have been abused, or, if not themselves, their ancestors ten generations ago. Law abiding citizens, though, can’t abuse the system, so genuine French citizens have fewer children than the replacement rate, as the welfare state is not generous with parents anymore… while the taxation rate in France is the highest in wealthy countries… And those taxes strike the middle class: the oligarchs do not have to pay inheritance tax, for example, while poor people pay inheritance tax as high as 60%. Oligarchs write the laws: owning a castle, works of art, factories exclude them from taxation….

A practical result is that French per capita GDP is going down relative to peer countries…

By censoring the previous, all true and unadorned comment, the plutocratic NYT showed how correct it was, and how wrong their posing as the adjudicators of virtue, is.

Patrice Ayme

 

 

From 1950 to 2006, REAL French GDP per capita went up steadily at a clip of nearly 5% a year. Since then, it has stalled. What happened? De-industrialization and stupidification from plutocratization!

[1] On the NYT piece typical of anti-French propaganda these days:

PARIS — Like the rest of Europe, France is gripped by the war in Ukraine…

But for all the talk of a united West, the truth is that a noxious blend of oligarchy, nostalgia and bellicose nationalism is ever more ubiquitous on this side of the new Iron Curtain. In France, it is led by a buoyant and confident new right, represented in this election by Marine Le Pen, the leader of the far-right National Rally; Valérie Pécresse of the ostensibly moderate Republicans; and Éric Zemmour, the pugilistic proto-fascist commentator turned [presidential] candidate.

… a sideshow in a broader attempt to remake French politics. Behind them all, to one degree or another, is someone not even on the ballot: the media mogul Vincent Bolloré. The scion of an old industrial family, Mr. Bolloré wields a fearsome agenda-setting power; his outlets, known for adopting the flair, tics and style of Fox News, play an outsize role in directing the national debate.

A few remarks: all the French media is owned by oligarchs, but for the French state TV. It’s not just Bolloré. For example Le Figaro is owned by Dassault. Le Monde has several wealthy investors, not all French… Libération is owned by French telecoms giant Altice…  

Bolloré, who is worth around ten billion dollars, roughly 5% of the worth of the wealthiest French oligarch, like other French oligarchs, did not have to pay inheritance tax. Normal French citizens of the lowest middle class can pay more than 65% inheritance tax… For example there is minimum mandatory 5% of the value of total inheritance for “furniture”… even if there is no furniture… It’s Kafkaesque… And the result of Kafka is what happened in Eastern Europe and Russia: the systematic destruction of the middle and lower class, to leave only an underclass, the Lumpenproletariat of Marx…… And the noble oligo-plutocrats on top, owning everything, even minds, hearts and souls…

Amusingly, the NYT talks, correctly, about France, the way it should, but would not, dare to talk about the USA:

“Those trying to get a handle on developments in France… look to Mr. Bolloré, whose name is a byword for the political power of French oligarchs. Mr. Bolloré is a bellwether of a dangerous mood at the top of French society, one that extends far beyond the conservative wing of the elite. Fearful of decline, anxious about movements and ideas from below, the broader French establishment is eager to capitalize on the country’s divisions to cling to power.

Mr. Bolloré himself has ties in the most exclusive circles of the Parisian elite. After inheriting and reviving his family’s struggling paper business with his brother in the early 1980s, he developed a near monopoly on West African ports and logistics—activities from which he appears to be withdrawing. In the early 2000s, Mr. Bolloré set about building his media empire, which today encompasses two of France’s largest publishing houses, a major advertising agency, an array of society magazines and weeklies, a national radio network and the premium TV production group Canal+. Then there’s the jewel in the crown: the hard-right 24-hour news station, CNews.”

Mr. Bolloré portrays himself as above the partisan fray, yet by building an integrated media apparatus for a hysteric, inflamed conservatism, he has reshaped French political life. France, according to CNews, is on the cusp of a breakdown of order and civility, one spark away from civil war. American-inspired “wokistes” and “islamo-leftists” — terms wantonly used as synonyms for progressive activists, intellectuals and politicians — are concocting a plot to emasculate France and its republican traditions. Immigrants are the massed bearers of collapse… In January, to cite just one recent example, Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer gave the introductory speech at a two-day colloquium at the Sorbonne on the perils of “wokisme” and progressive identity politics.

My comment to the NYT was all true, just as it is, and as it was. Censored. Putinized. 

Day after day the NYT publishes these anti-French articles. That particular piece of Americano-fascism was by Harrison Stetler, a journalist who writes about French politics.

“1619” From 12 Years Ago: PLUTOCRACY ORIGINATED SLAVERY AND RACISM

September 19, 2020

English Plutocracy Created Slavery And Justified It With Racism:
Where did the idea of focusing on the year 1619 CE come from? As far as I know, I inaugurated it. Here is a typical old post of mine, from Wednesday, November 5, 2008. As one can see below, many of these ideas have been co-opted by Black Lives Matter, progressives, and the likes of the New York Times. I am pulling rank here, because global plutocrats, their servants and their barking dogs have distorted and modified a lot of the original concepts, and neutered or neutralized and thoroughly omitted their more incisive aspects. For example, all talk about “systemic racism”. But where did “systemic racism” come from? From systemic plutocracy. A plutocracy so bad, it invented something even the evil Roman empire did not have: racism. These aspects of my considerations have disappeared, making “systemic racism” a headless chicken… which will be soon drained of its blood, and will collapse twitching, and will soon be forgotten as a false leader, a youthful error without understanding an excess narrated by furious idiots, signifying nothing. As intended by those who manipulate the media.

I don’t generally reproduce my old posts, as it’s a bit too narcistic and it stunts creativity. However, as I have harshly criticized the global plutocratic corporations enslaving Chinese  political prisoners while funding Black Lives Matter, to efficiently cover their tracks, and because I refute none of my old ideals, and stick with the concepts, here it is:

PLUTOCRACY ORIGINATED SLAVERY AND RACISM.

THE HEAD OF THE DEADLY SNAKE HAS NOT BEEN CUT OFF YET.

The racial Civil War started 147 years ago. Some will say it ended with Obama’s election… thus nicely forgetting that Africans were enslaved in English America 390 years ago, in 1619 CE

But what about the plutocratic civil war? The one of the rich against the people? Is that finished too? As it turns out, the racial war is a particular case of that war of the rich against the poor. God, in the fourteenth century had told the Pope that Africans could be enslaved, and the Pope dutifully wrote a bull recommending that, and the invasion of Africa. That was most pleasing to the plutocrats in Portugal. Like in Iraq with the oil nowadays, there was money to be made in Africa with sugarcane. In the Americas, it’s the rich who acquired millions of African slaves, to produce very profitable tobacco. Those slaves were extremely expensive to purchase: the rich in America committed the crime of slavery, it’s not everybody who did it. Most people had nothing to do with it.

President Washington got started in the military and real estate, playing the Brits, the French, the Indians, and the average Joe, against each other, in a masterful game. Washington finished as a big slave master, and the richest man in the USA. He resisted his friend Lafayette’s entreaties to outlaw slavery. Twelve US presidents owned slaves (yes, more than 25%).

It’s not just the Bush team that came short in recent years, but the entire plutocracy has finally shown its ugly face for everybody to contemplate. Flushed by increasing bubbles, the plutocracy became ever more arrogant, so arrogant, it had decided to conquer the world physically, or at least where the oil was. As the American people initially applauded the decision, the plutocracy became ever more arrogant, and engaged in ever more dangerous and abusive financial practices. Thus it finally tripped in Iraq, and in banking corruption unbound. Apparently not satisfied with the enslavement of Africans, now most Americans had also to be treated as means to ever greater riches. It’s no coincidence that the people have chosen one who would have been looked at as a slave a little while ago: the entire American people has good reason to feel enslaved now. Most Americans feel black, in more ways than one.

The Plutocracy forced God fundamentalism on the people (“In God We Trust” was imposed in 1956). Thus God could tell Bush to invade Iraq. So, sure the Bush team was going from blunder to blunder, but that was a method of government, born of total contempt. It was taken for granted that the plutocracy would keep on governing: by making people naive and uncritical. Even at this late hour, plutocracy has asked for a trillion dollars for itself, so it could pay its bonuses past and present (those total more than 110 billions, according to respected newspapers).

Thus there is a bigger picture than slavery and racism. Slavery and racism originated in Pluto’s world. They were literally political and psychological derivatives that plutocracy used as an exoskeleton. The greater war of the rich against the poor is far from won: many mass psychological structures of the USA support the plutocracy, not the People. Just look at the coins; they do not trust the People (“E Pluribus Unum” was the original slogan of the USA). Instead the coins order us to trust “God”, the one that brought us slavery and the invasion of Iraq.

Well, it may be time to remember that Rome did not have racism, but Rome had plutocracy, and ultimately, that plutocracy destroyed Rome.

Betrayed By Its Chief Mercenary: How The 9/11 Tragedy Hides An Ongoing Hoax

September 11, 2020

Systemic lying, as deep as the Deeply Plutocratic State goes… The USA went to war in the Middle East because of a hoax perpetrated by oil and financial plutocrats, and their obsequious, greedy little servants. The Bin Laden saga was a minor act in the whole picture, which spans now a full century. But the US population does not know any better, because it does not read enough, can’t read the really revealing stuff, and is expertly lied to by plutocratic organization such as the brazenly named “Factcheck.org” (which claims, against all international evidence, that the USA had nothing to do with Bin Laden).

A hoax is a falsehood deliberately fabricated to masquerade as the truth. It is distinguishable from errors in observation or judgment, rumors, urban legends. The hoax, the imposture, the falsehood that 9/11 hides is that US policies didn’t cause 9/11. They did, in detail: the terrorist masterminds were, for many years, used as mercenaries by the USA. These policies of manipulating Muslim Fundamentalist mercenaries are as old as the investment of US oil plutocrats with the Saudis (themselves hereditary plutocrats forming what is called a monarchy)… in the 1930s. An accord was found where Saudi money from oil receipts would be recycled on Wall Street, and the Wahhabist (a hard core literralist sect of Islam founded in the 18 C) will keep the global plutocratic order firmly in command, and revolution down. 

When US propaganda presents 9/11 its all about profiles in courage, tragedy, and noble suffering. There is never an attempt to find out what truly happened. Here is President Donald Trump on 9/11/20:

“On that September morning when America was under attack, the battle turned in the skies above this field. Soon after taking off from Newark, New Jersey, radical Islamic terrorists seized control of United 93. Other hijacked planes struck the North tower of the World Trade Center, and then the South tower, and then the Pentagon. The terrorists on Flight 93 had a fourth target in mind, it was called our nation’s capitol.

They were just 20 minutes away from reaching their sinister objective. The only thing that stood between the enemy and a deadly strike at the heart of American democracy was the courage and resolve of 40 men and women. The amazing passengers and crew of Flight 93.

Donald and Jean Peterson were grandparents traveling to vacation in California. Deora Bodley was a student headed back to college. Richard Guadagno was returning from celebrating his grandmother’s 100th birthday. Lauren Caruzzi Grandcolas was three months pregnant with her first child.

Every passenger and crew member on the plane had a life filled with love and joy, friends and family, radiant hopes and limitless dreams. When the plane was hijacked, they called their families and learned that America was also under attack. Then they faced the most fateful moment of their lives. Through the heartache and the tears, they prayed to God, they placed their last calls home, they whispered the immortal words, I love you. Today, those words ring out across these sacred grounds and they shine down on us from Heaven above.

When terrorists raised to destroy the seat of our democracy, the 40 of Flight 93 did the most American of things. They took a vote, and then they acted. Together, they charged the cockpit. They confronted the pure evil. And, in their last act on this earth, they saved our capital. In this Pennsylvania field, the 40 intrepid souls of Flight 93 died as true heroes. Their momentous deeds will outlive us all.

All very beautiful and correct, and I do not condemn Trump for any of these words, after all, he has an election coming driven by some of the biggest powerful liars around. What I do condemn is the US intellectual leadership, which, nineteen years after 9/11, as not examined what really happened, or why the elite head terrorist mercenary of the USA, Osama Bin Laden, turned against his employer.

Oops. Something is revealed, but propaganda damage control means that the US population is still not suspecting, to this day, that this particular collapse was the work of US mercenaries and US politics, since the 1930s, at the very least. (The British had heavily supported the Saudis in the 1920s, killing at least 20,000 to help Arab tyrant king Abdulaziz Ibn Saud… It’s likely the US government at the very least knew and approved.)

***

And why terrorist in chief Obama ordered Osama bin Laden killed:

Let’s put my New York Times subscription to work, after a full week or two of total censorship of my comments… As told by the NYT in “How 4 Federal Lawyers Paved the Way to Kill Osama bin LadenBy Charlie Savage, Oct. 28, 2015

… “a few other lawyers were eventually told the secret. But the White House kept senior lawyers at the Justice and State Departments in the dark… Thomas E. Donilon, national security adviser to Mr. Obama decided that there was no need for the Attorney General to know. AG Holder was briefed the day before the raid, long after the legal questions had been resolved… the four lawyers conferred in secure conference calls and … as the possible date for a raid neared, Mr. Preston grew tense and proposed writing the memos. Mr. Johnson wrote one on violating Pakistani sovereignty. When two countries are not at war, international law generally forbids one from using force on the other’s soil without consent. .. The lawyers decided that a unilateral military incursion would be lawful because of a disputed exception to sovereignty for situations in which a government is “unwilling or unable” to suppress a threat to others emanating from its soil.

Invoking this exception was a legal stretch, for two reasons. Many countries have not accepted its legitimacy. And there was no precedent for applying it to a situation in which the United States did not first ask Pakistan, which had helped with or granted consent for other counterterrorism operations… There was also a trump card. While the lawyers believed that Mr. Obama was bound to obey domestic law, they also believed he could decide to violate international law when authorizing a “covert” action, officials said…. some officials thought the SEALs might be able to slip back out, allowing the United States to pretend the raid never happened.

The lawyers also grappled with whether it was lawful for the SEAL team to go in intending to kill Bin Laden… They agreed that it would be legal, in a memo written by Ms. DeRosa, and Mr. Obama later EXPLICITLY ORDERED A KILL MISSION, officials said…

The lawyers also considered writing a memo describing their earlier analysis about what to do with any other living prisoners taken out of the compound, but did not write it because the final plan did not call for the SEALs to leave with anyone else.”

So here we have democracy and worldwide terrorism, and evasion of justice by four unelected lawyers nobody has ever heard of. And good errant boy Obama does what his masters told him to do, as usual…

This is all pretty incredible. When the First World War got launched, Austro-Hungary sent an ultimatum to its enemy Serbia, because Serbian terrorists and a Serbian based terrorist organization, the “Black Hand” had organized an elaborate plot to kill the de facto quasi-head of state and future emperor. The ultimatum requested many things, including full Austrian-Hungarian powers in Serbia to find out about the various conspirators. Serbia agreed to all, but for the last condition. So Austro-Hungary declared war. That took a few weeks. 

Instead the US leaders, under Obama, a century after the assassination in Sarajevo, decided to make the USA behave like a rogue state, by taking the law in their own hands inside another country.

Bin Laden could have been captured. He had no time to surrender, but he  was not resisting… said the SEALS who had got the kill order, Bin Laden was behind his wife with his hands on her shoulders. He was shot twice in the forehead, then some more once on the ground.

What does that remind you of?

Mafia style. 

Truth is Bin Laden as was a soldier of America, who got enraged for some reason(s), and found dozens of thousands of other mercenaries for America who got similarly enraged, if not millions… We wanted to hear the details, how the CIA and SIA recruited him, and instructed him (to go bomb little girls’ schools in Afghanistan). The powers that be, you promised the world to the prostitute in chief, knew better. They instructed him to get rid of Bin Laden, because Bin Laden knew too much.

Better, feel the global plutocrats who pull the strings to have entire generations who do not know that a “Democratic” US president launched the war in Afghanistan

 

***

Evil organizations such as “Factcheck.org” claim that the assertion of Senator Rand Paul that Bin Laden was a US agent is a “urban myth”:  

https://www.factcheck.org/2013/02/rand-pauls-bin-laden-claim-is-urban-myth/ 

What Senator Rand wrote was that: Paul, Feb. 6: In the 1980s the war caucus in Congress armed bin Laden and the mujahideen in their fight with the Soviet Union. In fact, it was the official position of the State Department to support radical jihad against the Soviets. We all know how well that worked out. 

Factcheck says this is false, there is “no evidence for it”. Factcheck is lying, following the BIG LIE technique. Well, there is no evidence in the US, because it has been cleansed with Putin like efficiency. Evidence exists, but not inside the USA, except on tiny sites such as your’s truly: such evidence was actively suppressed, while top US leaders boasted of the opposite overseas… with the obvious idea of terrifying the rest of the planet with the concept that US leaders would kill millions, well, just because they could. 

The Muslim Fundamentalist war the US leaders imposed onto Afghanistan and also, with variants, in Iraq, Iran, Syria had the overall aim to create strife: divide et impera! Divide and order around with the power of life and death…

Factcheck is financed by the plutocratic Annenberg Foundation at the direction of the late Walter Annenberg, grants from the Flora Family Foundation, and financial support from the evil worldwide monopolies known as Facebook and Google…

And how does Factcheck Org’s lie technically work? Simple. Evidence that Bin Laden met with CIA operatives is blocked in the USA, so there is no evidence for it… In the USA. Also all the contacts which were enormous and extensive, were made not through the ISI of Pakistan (as Factcheck luridly claims) but through the SIA (Saudi Intelligence Agency). So technically, those liars claim they are not lying. Notice that when they claim that the CIA and the Pakistani had nothing to do with Bin Laden, the monopolistically plutocratically financed “Factcheck.org” forgets to make any mention of the CIA alter ego, the SIA…

In truth, US secret services and organizations and individuals gravitating in the vicinity, or vice versa, have long used Muslim Fundamentalism, in Egypt, Iran, North Africa, etc… already in the 1940s…

Notes: Walter Hubert Annenberg (March 13, 1908 – October 1, 2002), son of a US media plutocrat, was himself an even bigger plutocrat, who founded the giant Annenberg Foundation. An American businessman, investor, philanthropist, and diplomat. Annenberg owned and operated Triangle Publications, which included ownership of The Philadelphia Inquirer, TV Guide, the Daily Racing Form, A+ Magazine, Essence, Star & Sky Magazine, Elementary Electronics, Playboy, The Saturday Evening Post, The Atlantic Monthly, and Seventeen magazine. He was appointed by President Richard Nixon as United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom, where he served from 1969 to 1974.

The Flora Foundation, with a capital in the dozens of billions, emanates from the Hewlett family fortune. One of its present (2020) heirs (yes, foundations have heirs, that’s the whole idea!), officers and worldwide plutocrats, greasing the wheels of abuse worldwide, in the name of the environment, intervened to punish me by having my nine year old daughter thrown out of the Franco-American school she had attended since the age of four. They kept the money. I was made to understand that things would get way worse if I complained in public… The creature is a first name friend of many of the usual suspects, and their employees, such as the French president.

Factcheck.Org claims no journalist ever said what Senator Rand Paul said. They don’t read French, they just read plutocrat, that’s all they need to live well. Here is “The Exemplary student of CIA turned against his master”:

L’élève exemplaire de la CIA s’est retourné contre son maître

Mardi 3 Mai 2011

La créature a échappé à son créateur. Le chef terroriste, qui a longtemps servi les intérêts de Washington en Afghanistan contre l’Union soviétique, a été formé par les services US.

Car, avant d’être l’un des hommes les plus recherchés par le FBI, le multimillionnaire était un allié précieux des États-Unis.

Né en 1957 en Arabie saoudite, Oussama Ben Laden serait le 17e fils d’une grande fratrie d’un richissime constructeur d’origine yéménite. Ce dernier contrôle près de 80 % du marché des travaux publics de la pétro-monarchie semi-féodale. Le régime de Riyad, issu du wahhabisme (islam rigoriste et rétrograde), finance ici et souvent là des mouvements armés islamistes. Washington le sait mais ferme les yeux, la dynastie royale est un fidèle pivot de la stratégie américaine dans la péninsule Arabique, et un fournisseur pétrolier de la première puissance mondiale. Durant ses études d’ingénieur, Oussama Ben Laden se rapproche des Frères musulmans, embrasse les thèses fondamentalistes. En 1978, il gagne la confiance du chef des services secrets saoudiens, le prince Turki Ibn Fayçal, qui le place à la tête d’un réseau chargé de recruter des hommes prêts à combattre en Afghanistan. Un an plus tard, l’intervention dans ce pays de l’Union soviétique est à l’origine de son rapprochement avec la CIA. Il partage l’objectif d’en finir avec « l’empire du mal », selon l’expression de Ronald Reagan. La lutte contre le communisme vaut bien quelques alliances qui peuvent paraître contre-nature. Ben Laden s’installe à la frontière pakistano-afghane, et fournit, en grand argentier qu’il est, armes et entraînements aux combattants antisoviétiques, grâce à l’appui de la CIA. Certains voient là l’origine d’al-Qaida, la « base » en arabe. Au passage, il poursuit son prosélytisme, en finançant la construction d’édifices religieux où prêchera, notamment, le futur Mollah Omar, chef des talibans afghans.

Une fois la guerre finie, Ben Laden poursuit ses activités d’agent secret à Peshawar pour le compte du régime saoudien. Il continue d’armer ceux qui se revendiquent d’un islamisme pur et dur, suivant un tracé géostratégique qui suit les intérêts nord-américains. C’est donc peu dire que les États-Unis ne trouvent rien à redire à ses faits et gestes. Jusqu’à la guerre en Irak, en 1990. L’Arabie saoudite soutient Washington dans son entreprise de faire main basse sur le pétrole contrôlé par Saddam Hussein.

Big Tech, Big Thieves! Demolition of Patent Law By Big Tech Thieves

July 31, 2020

One could call me a technology fanatic: I believe that only the most advanced technology will save humanity, the planet, not to say the cosmos (from its otherwise boring state). High education is the greatest wealth there is… after love. In my case, much of this cognitive wealth is the fruit of a mood I inherited from generations of my ancestors, on both sides of the Mediterranean.

I am fully aware that science and philosophy is nothing without tech. We have enslaved the planet, so we don’t need to put Homo on the menu on a regular basis. 

Higher education is never the fruit of greed, because it costs too much. Many of the titans of Big Tech are rather uneducated, they tend to be like leeches, critters which think barely enough to be experts at bloodsucking.  Tech titans tend to be rather uneducated, because they were conferred by the big imperial US racist government huge powers to spy on, and manipulate the minds of We The People, worldwide.

An illustration of the brutish force of plutocracy, is Bill Gates; born wealthy, this college drop-out got his big breakthrough from his mom, an IBM director, and doubles his power with the Gates Foundation, a deceiving and defeating outfit which demonstrated its nocivity during the recent pandemic: while Bill Gates was getting love letter from his collaborator, Xi, the Chinese dictator, millions got sick and brain damaged. Gates Foundation steals tax dollars not going to serious biomedical research, instead it interferes with government and serves Gates (be it just by investing in Gates’ investments).
Gates extends his power all over media, propagandizing for China’s dictator. He is evil-power (pluto-kratia) personified. NBC loves Gates: it is controlled by Comcast, itself controlled by the Roberts plutocratic family, small potatoes relative to Gates, thus anxious to please him.

Big Tech, in a coordinated action, censored Medical Doctors on 7/27/2020 (the videos were “removed for violating community guidelines”). The presentation of some treatments used massively in countries where the ratio of deaths relative to the number of COVID cases is very low was blocked as “unscientific” (Turkey, India, Saudi Arabia, Russia, etc.). Donald Trump Junior and the lawyer of Flynn (a former Federal Prosecutor) were also banned from Twitter… For having mentioned Hydroxychloroquine. There is direct evidence that Big Tech hates Trump and will do anything to not get him re-elected. 

The following was also censored by Big Tech: the (scientifically established, and scientifically understood) fact that children are little at risk to get or transmit the disease when they are in elementary school (this is due to the low density of ACE2 receptors in little children). 

This is a dramatic demonstration of the Big Power of so-called Big Tech: although many of its leaders have not even a college degree, it can decide what medical science is. 

Things are not what common people think they are. By attacking Trump in the most grotesque and racist fashion, corrupt democrats (not all democrats are corrupt), prevented Trump to destroy the tech monopolies. In that picture, Twitter’s Jack Dorsey (a billionaire made up by Wall Street, not profits), and receiver of the Medal of Freedom Gates are missing… More than 80 giant US multinationals are suspected of using Chinese slave labor

Zuckerberg, Mr. Sugar (Zucker) mountain (Berg), said he employs 35,000 censors (“content moderators”), or maybe more… plus 70 “fact checker” companies around the world.  Sugar Mountain also claims that there is no bias. However, Google employs a “fringe ranking”, and censors the fringe automatically. That is tantamount to censoring progress, as all and any progress starts as “fringe”.

On July 29, 2020, Congressman Gaetz brought up Google’s “fringe ranking”: “Who gets to decide what’s ‘fringe?’” Gaetz posited. “You said, ‘We don’t manually intervene on any particular search result,‘” Gaetz said in reference to a Dec. 11 hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee. “But leaked memos obtained by the Daily Caller show that that isn’t true. In fact, those memos were altered Dec. 3 just a week before your testimony and they describe a ‘deceptive news blacklist.’” Gaetz was talking to Pichai, the CEO of Google/Alphabet… who has Pichai’s compensation for 2019 was more than $280 million, topping the $200 million he received in 2016.

Some of my ideas about racism, now made mainstream by Black Lives Matter, were considered as “fringe”, or even “unique”, and censored accordingly (I actually exchanged with censors… more than a decade ago!).

Under the preceding two US administrations, Big Tech was able to modify Patent Law to its advantage. Now plaintiffs have to demonstrate first they suffered economically before asking for legal relief, when Big Tech steals their inventions; thus new inventions have little economic value for individuals in the US nowadays. Obama was so ill informed, he thought he was helping “practicing entities” when he righteously pushed for that.

These plutocratic corporations led by plutocrats know only one thing: power. They use an armada of tax avoiding “foundations”, “initiatives”, “not-for-profits”, to increase their power. And they leverage their power with politicians anxious for future income. Who needs money when one can have absolute power?

Pluto-kratia is evil-power. Big tech has been violating the spirit, if not the letter, many laws. It can keep on doing this only by exercising its power in even more evil ways. That’s a vicious circle. Rockefeller controlled too much oil, so his company was broken up. Today’s plutocrats do not control oil, but minds. It’s worse. 

***

The first thing to do to fight Big Tech’s ever increasing monopoly powers, is to revert Patent Law to what it is supposed to be: a monopoly granted by the state in exchange for making one’s invention available to the world. As it is, US Patent Law has been changed, in a process started in 2006, but expanded under Obama, in something where the inventor has to show “economic injury” if her invention is stolen (that is, the invention is used, while not compensating the inventor for usage). Big Tech can immediately argue that no “economic injury” has been sustained by its usage of others’ inventions… as the inventor didn’t make money from it… since Big Tech did. So no inventor can go see a lawyer to ask for remedy: both the inventor and the lawyer would lose time and energy, to no avail: they were not previously injured economically. This has enabled Big Tech to steal others’ invention with complete impunity… especially when an invention has been patented, that is, published with full explanations on how to make the invention (patenting is itself a long and costly process involving specialized agents and, or attorneys).

BIG TECH CAN CORRUPT FEDERAL MAGISTRATES BIG TIME:

Who can resist five million dollars? Well, I personally know the case of a federal judge who did not resist…

Indeed, another strategy Big Tech uses is to systematically sue into extinction small companies and inventors who don’t submit. I know of the case of a tiny company who was sued frivolously by a large tech company (it was basically sued for using its own inventions!) The tiny company won a jury trial, but the (Federal) magistrate did not force the tech giant to pay for the lawyers’ fees. That was a Friday morning. Friday afternoon, the ex-judge, who had just resigned, accepted a five million dollar compensation package from another tech giant. 

The highly innovative electronic CPU engineering company was pushed into bankruptcy. To this day its engineers, who were ruined, have been unable to invent as they used to. They live in Colorado, but fed crucial electronic know-how to Silicon Valley (the federal magistrate who got bought was in San Jose). Such engineers are not greedy college drop-outs such as Gates of Hell and the Sugar Mountain: they have done years of studies after college, they have Masters, PhDs… The judge’s corruption reduced many professionals crucial for the survival of civilization to destitution. They suffered, and are still suffering: some have still basically no income, and reduced savings. But even more, civilization suffered, because innovation got struck to the core (full disclosure: I was directly involved, that’s why I know the case so well; I did not write any names yet, but I remember them well; the five million dollar bribe was given by one of the companies dragged to the US Congress, 7/30/2020… But Congress has no idea that US judges can be bought, and have been bought… Hopefully this writing will help it get on the radar…)

***

The last way Big Tech rules, is simply by swallowing small companies whole… after various threats… That was covered in Congress 7/30/2020… But common people go to jail for much less than that: remember George Floyd, and his fake twenty dollar bill? So how come the Tech titans, having stolen billions are not arrested and stomped on too? Systemic plutocracy!   

Mind control by Big Tech monopolies is proceeding apace. 

Plutocratic monopolization is how civilizations get destroyed: look at Rome… In the end Rome was unable to think out of the oligarchic box it was stuck into. And the oligarchs prefer to negotiate with the barbarian invaders rather than doing the right thing, and restore the powers of the Roman Republic.

Meet Your Plutocratic Owners: Xi-Finity Comcast NBC Universal, Courtesy Roberts Billionaires

July 24, 2020

I sent hundreds of dollars to Comcast every month. Who is Comcast owned by?

Total Market Capitalization of Comcast is around US$ 200 billion in July 2020.

Comcast has around 200,000 employees.

Some of its divisions: Xfinity, NBC Universal, Sky Group.

The latter two are major influencers.

Universal Beijing Resort, a joint venture between Beijing government and Universal Parks & Resorts, a business unit of Comcast NBCUniversal is planned to be the world’s largest amusement park. Comcast plans to spend around 5 billion building it. Built since 2014, it is supposed to be finished in 2021.

The close business and investment collaboration with the Chinese government shows that Comcast is actually a propaganda arm of the Xi dictatorship, in the grand tradition of plutocrats helping collaborating dictators be all what they can be. Comcast owns Xi-finity, and Xfinity is a convenient abbreviation.

US plutocrats, led by the hyper racist Henry Ford, basically created Hitler. The White House was involved, mightily, but discreetly. Both president Wilson and Roosevelt promoted German fascism, but they were crafty, deceitful, and very efficient about it. 

However, in the last decade, the promotion of the racist, fascist dictator Xi by US plutocrats and its attached Kenyan fathered commission boy, was in no way discreet.  

In the Plutocratic White House… Comcast contraptions, power monsters sucking world dry : Meet a Trump hater. Hereditary billionaire Brian Roberts, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Comcast Corp., right, and his wife Aileen Roberts arrive at a state dinner in honor of Chinese President Xi Jinping at the White House in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Friday, Sept. 25, 2015. Aileen+Roberts+President+Obama+Hosts+Chinese+98IjCJvW9Fal

 Xifinity? Plutocrats create and then leverage fascist racist dictators… such should be the main lesson drawn from the history of Hitler, the Nazis, and their sponsors. The same story is being repeated under our eyes, with the fascist, racist Xi dictatorship.

Roberts, who is this Roberts? Comcast has a main owner, the Roberts family (1% equity interest, 33% voting power). Brian Roberts is the son of Ralph Roberts himself the son of Bob Roberts, all immensely wealthy.

The same trick is used all over so-called “capitalism”, and therein its neo-feudal nature. Common folks buy common shares, plutocrats buy “preferred” shares. This way they achieve control. They become the captain, common folks are not even bugs, they are just part of the machinery, 

So the little minds are all listening to the billionaires propaganda, while a host of companies working with Xi in China, where they use Xi’s slaves and race prisoners, such as Nike, Microsoft, etc… contributed 2.7 billion dollars to Black Lives Matter in the USA… while screaming about the racist Trump and his virus…

Divide minds and conquer…

Lives Matter, So Plutocrat Zuckerberg Stole A Public Hospital

July 20, 2020

Lives Matter, So Plutocrat Zuckerberg uses his capture of a hospital to depict himself as a good person. Hey, won’t he give 99% of his Facebook stock for “charity”… to himself, without paying any taxes… 

Some “Black Lives Matter” throw down statues of those who won the Slavery War. How clever and coherent is that? Maybe more than it looks. If those they throw down the statues of, had not existed, many “Black Lives”  would still wear chains, and a little whip would have to be occasionally applied to encourage them. So when “Black Lives” who matter, destroy the memory of Ulysse Grant, the general who won the slavery war, are the “Black Lives Matter” as cretinous as they look? Or are they, acting on the simple instincts associated to more primitive form of life, smelling something deeper directing their progression like bacteria drawn to sugar? Maybe they do, and they should. Let us help them, “Black Lives“, by explaining truth in a bit more depth.

The USA is in the grip of total plutocracy. Plutocrats control 100% of the media, thus nearly 100% of the minds. Every time I write down this notion, the New York Times immediately censors it (I am a long time subscriber, apparently cultivating my masochism and forbearance). The NYT is little more than a deranged Trump hate cult (I read their insanities everyday)… Why is the NYT so afraid of the revelation that Pluto owns all minds? The NYT knows that, however idiotic their readership is, the ultra simple notion that, whatever information is fed to minds, has been inspected and approved by global plutocracy… it could perhaps flip a switch in their minds. If it turned out that those moods have been force fed for so long, even the simplest reader may ask, are those souls and hearts of them, just actually installed to serve The Man? 

An example of The Man is Marc Zuckerberg, a specialist of stealing what is, or should be, public property. Zuckerberg sets high standards of plutocratic hubris… A hubris only surpassed by the likes of Dorsey, the Twitter CEO, who became a multibillionaire without his company ever earning a dime (but he will censor you, and actually has arrogated to himself some of the powers of the Roman censors of old… who were public officials, whereas Dorsey is just a nobody with the arrogance of five billion dollars and the power to block publication…)

An example of installed mood all US citizens tend to share, and which has to be destroyed, is celebritism. According to celebritism, we all owe everything to immensely out-of-the-ordinary heroes. They did not just create all the worthy ideas and emotions, they created all the jobs and wealth, without them the universe would be empty, human life would cease. 

San Francisco Hospital is very old and gigantic. Zuckerberg gave peanuts… But the hospital is ruled by wealthy doctors who want to earn even more money. At least in San Francisco that’s what the powers that be want you to believe: without Marc Zuckerberg, the ultra wealthy owner of a world-monopolistic social network, no healthcare in San Francisco. Having health cared for in San Francisco is to subscribe to the Marc Zuckerberg cult. Now many very wise and knowledgeable individuals, worldwide, argue that Zuckerberg is little more than a thief, a front, and a spy. Respected institutions like parts of the European justice and legislative system, have pondered all the laws facebook has broken.  

But the city of San Francisco tells you: if your health is in jeopardy, and someday it will be, should you be lucky, if you want to survive, you have to embrace the Marc Zuckerberg cult. Marc is the way, there is no alternative.

A public hospital founded 150 years ago, and publicly financed, after at least one direct referendum to do so, is named after ONE young, live, mind manipulating plutocrat, Marc Zuckerberg… Or how the cult of celebritism is pushed onto people.

What is the interest of this? It teaches normal people they are nothing. Zuckerberg meets with the Pope, Congress, presidents, buy Hawai’i, establishes a 80 billion dollars “Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative” (CZI). He controls it. Thus he can give, without ever paying income tax on capital gains, because he gives shares, and still he can claim the colossal deductions… While keeping all the powers and respect, and influence that controlling hundreds of billions, and public opinion, gives. 

And what of the dignitaries in San Francisco, the board of the hospital who entunes:

“Our History – Zuckerberg San Francisco General

Zuckerberg San Francisco General has been an integral part of San Francisco history for over 150 years, responding to the city’s health crises and working to improve the health and well-being of all…

Zuckerbergsanfranciscogeneral.org

Who gave them the right to nominally attribute private property?

The tall buildings in sight are part of San Francisco General Hospital. Zuckerberg couldn’t even pay for more than a fraction of the parking lots.

In 2011, San Franciscans OKed a new hospital building. Huge sums were involved.

84% of San Francisco voters passed Proposition A to build a new acute care and trauma center on the original hospital site. In 2011, San Francisco General Hospital Foundation launched the Heart of Our City Capital Campaign to raise funds.

In 2008, another similar public fundraising had passed: To ensure the availability of San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center in the event of a natural disaster or emergency, by building and/or rebuilding and improving the earthquake safety of the hospital and to pay related costs necessary or convenient for the foregoing purposes, shall the City and County of San Francisco issue $887,400,000 in general obligation bonds subject to independent oversight and regular audits?

Such sums absolutely dwarf the measly 75 millions given by Chan-Zuck… Thus one can deduce the leaders of San Francisco General Hospital view celebritism as the most important of mission. 

Popes have to meet with beggars and thieves. Shouldn’t the Pope protest when a hospital is stolen? No, instead he makes gives to Caesar… Who gave the world to these punks? Other, older punks, and the mood they feed…

Their minds are corrupt. They have done high studies, because the public invested in… them. Zuckerberg didn’t. By serving him and his ilk, they betray those who have created them, the public. Just because they are prostitutes? Well, prostitution is a calling, but betrayal should be severely punished.

Ideology Is Always Top Down, And the Influence Can Be Incredibly Subtle

July 16, 2020

WHY THE ROMANS COULDN’T THINK DEEP AND THE SICK COPENHAGEN INTERPRETATION OF THE QUANTUM IS RACIST

What ideology matters? Does Low Lives Ideology matter? No, never! What matters is High Lives Ideology! Nietzsche covered that one when he focused on the sheeple of Christianism versus the ‘blonde beast” mentality of their lords. By “blonde beast”, Nietzsche didn’t mean Viking but the lions found on many coats of arms of the Middle Ages. Nietzsche observed that the morality of the European aristocracy was closer to the kill them all of lions rather than the love them all, professed by Jesus (when he was in a good mood). 

We have plenty of proof of the giant chasm between the “flock” mentality the folks were immersed in, preached by the Lords, and what the Lords practiced: consider the Crusades, the Cathars, the Jacqueries in France, when the worst atrocities happened (on both sides). The European aristocracy was one, not just morally, and intellectually, but even genetically, as they intermarried heavily, all the way from Madrid and London to Kiev and Moscow.

Christianism was imposed top down by the Roman emperors, starting with the tyrant Constantine, killer of his own family. It worked for (much of) the Roman plutocracy, which succeeded to merge with barbarians. 

The supreme trick for the elite, is to present as coming from the bottom what actually came from the top, the elite itself.

Lenin in a bad way. You would look like that too, if you set to help We The People, and then discovered you were instrumentalized by the fascist Kaiser Wilhelm, and the lethal thug Stalin…

Some who know history, superficially, may roll out the Soviets (Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin). Surely, they would say, that was an ideology coming from the bottom, the Russian proletariat! Well, not so: it’s the Kaiser Whilhelm II and his goons who enabled Lenin and his entourage to be injected from Switzerland to Russia. They had a deal. In 1917, Lenin gave a gigantic piece of Western Russia (some Poland, Ukraine) to the German dictatorship. This gave the fascist German military enormous resources and enabled them to bring all their forces to bear on the Western Front. So, actually, Sovietism was an ideology serving German fascism (it showed up again in 1939-1941) with the official alliance between the USSR and Hitler, which enabled the latter to crush the French Republic (the Nazi army was fully fueled by Soviet oil). 

Criticizing (real, yet secondary and mostly imaginary) “systemic racism”, is another example of an ideology imposed from the top to enable the pursuit of the rule of the present dominants, the (mostly) US plutocrats.

How does this work? Basically the dominants control the military, the police, justice, and, most important of all, the media. Roman media became fascist imperial under Augustus: he killed, exiled or defanged anybody not agreeing with him. The self-dominated “Senatus Princeps” (First in the Senate) fabricated for himself a compliant Senate. He defeated the spirit of republican opposition, by claiming that he had reinstituted the Republic. After Augustus died, nobody in the Senate knew what to do, and opposition was nonexistent (opponents had been killed, decades prior). After several weeks of indecisions, Tiberius, adoptive son of Augustus, and chief of the army, was called to duty, by said Senate.

After the “Year of the Four Emperors”, a messy and short struggle for power, the most powerful general took control, Vespasianus. Craftily, Vespasian adopted Josephus, a Jewish general he had captured. Between Saint Paul (another Jew who was a Roman citizen and prosecutor), the legend of Christ got written down. Morality:”give to Caesar what is to Caesar”, “turn the other cheek”, “love your neighbor as yourself”, “embrace passivity and martyrdom”, “hate non-believers”… and make allusions that it would be best if non-believers could be dealt with the sword. Also burn books and libraries, an exercise Saint Paul was very proud to have launched.

To cover its track, plutocratic Christianism exaggerated the martyrdom it suffered at the hands of Nero, Diocletian and Galerius (3,000 dead in the latter case). The persecution under Marcus-Aurelius is generally ignored, because the “stoicism” preached by that emperor goes hand in hand with Christianism: it also persuades the sheeple to lie supine and enjoy its living death, for the wisdom therein…

The Topmost, Very Highest Ideology Rests On Moods Imposed On The Lowest 

Most of the preceding section one may have read somewhere else. Now for something completely new. Why didn’t the Romans develop science or high intellect? Because the Romans were not just too fascist politically (especially after Tiberius Gracchus’ unfortunate adventure). The Romans were also INTELLECTUAL FASCISTS. It’s synchronized: too much political fascism is only possible with enough intellectual fascism. Intellectual fascism rests on a few axioms, a few idea, a few moods, a few emotions… all driven by the desire of limiting curiosity. 

So destroy the statues instead of understanding how they got there. This “Damnatio Memoriae” was a Roman speciality: it prevented to examine the past, because one didn’t know that it ever existed… I do not want to make the Romans more creative than they were: damnatio memoriae (damning memory) was actually in Ancient Egypt, aeons before Rome was created…

Science rests on curiosity and common sense. Creating more science means creating more of the curious spirit, and attending neurohormones, and much more common sense. 

This is where CIQ, the Copenhagen Interpretation of the Quantum, comes into play. The theory is absurd. Why? It takes Einstein’s localization hypothesis at face value (nobody ever denounces it, because Einstein is a sacred cow). 

However, all the Quantum Field Theory (QFT) computing depends upon Quantum wavefunctions which are spread out. The Born Hypothesis (BH) is that wavefunctions have only computational merit. No “reality” (or “element of reality” as Einstein said) are attributable to them, whatsoever. 

For me, philosophically, if something enables me, systematically, to predict reality, it is real. But not so for partisans of the CIQ. For them, Quantum wavefunctions are not real… Yet somehow, they are… systemic. They have something in front of their face, it does stuff, but then they claim it doesn’t exist. Many of the same physicists had Nazism in front of their cae, Nazism did stuff, but, still, they somehow denied it existed (Heisenberg, the one full of uncertainty is an example of this; he directed the Nazi effort to build a bomb… Thankfully he was less good a physicist than Irene Joliot-Curie who persuaded the French War Ministry in January 1938, that a nuclear bomb could be made; when the project had to flee Europe, it went to… Manhattan…)  

This idea that, if something systematically enables to compute something else, it is real, has recently been understood by the masses: it is actually the theory behind “systemic racism”: if someone is of color, that person has more trouble with the law, quality employment, healthcare, etc. So there is a causality there.

Hence one can see that the dominant ideology in physics denied the reality of the most basic causality, the most basic evidence. Thus top intellectuals could deny Nazism and “systemic racism” while believing that they were infinitely subtle…

A Civilization Whose Media Is Controlled By A Few Is Despicable

July 11, 2020

The New York Times wants us to worry about the cruelty directed to avian dinosaurs. Why chicken? Why not rats tortured by rat poison, dying over hours in indicible suffering? Aren’t rats closer to humans than chicken? Being too concerned by animal welfare was the mark of the Nazis: they passed very advanced animal welfare laws. That enabled them to present themselves as “humane”. It was a cover-up, a change of conversation.

On April 21, 1933, almost immediately after the Nazis came to power, the parliament began to pass laws for the regulation of animal slaughter. On April 21, a law was passed concerning the slaughter of animals; no animals were to be slaughtered without anesthetic. Those Nazis were obviously keen to project an image of goodness.

It is scornful to let a few wealthy families, who all know each other, control the world media. Therein the source of monothinking… And its erroneous outcomes. The climate catastrophe could have been mitigated. But it’s not going to be. Record beating temperatures in North Eastern Siberia (the world’s coldest place, outside of Antarctica) were recently measured: 38 Celsius, more than 100 Fahrenheit, more than Houston, Texas… The mad greenhouse is supposed to cook the polar regions, as it starts rampaging. And it is. So Siberia is burning, unleashing gigantic quantities of CO2 and methane. Two weeks ago, the area on fire was as large as Switzerland, and affecting air quality in North America.

So far, so funny. But when global HEATING goes nonlinear, it’s going to be even less funny than the COVID virus… (Picture NASA, July 2, 2020)

Nicholas Kristof of New York Times in his blog, Saturday 11, 2020:

I noted in my last newsletter that I was wondering, as we pull down controversial statues, what our great-grandchildren will find bewilderingly immoral about our own times — and about us. Some of you sent in your thoughts, and the thought nagged me enough that it became my Sunday column.
I think our descendants will find our passivity on climate change unforgivable. They’ll be staggered by our indifference to human suffering. And I think they’ll be baffled by our systematic cruelty to animals, especially poultry and livestock. Read the column and then post in the comments about other moral blind spots of our time that I missed.

I sent this:

A characteristic of the recent indignation of the upper middle class reminds me of the Puritans or old: namely, they think they are so pure, and they are not. But, to make sure that they feel pure, all howling the same way, while enjoying the spoils, they accuse The Devil… namely Trump.

However, Trump is a newcomer in politics, and he did not originate most of the well installed evils in place. An obvious evil is the housing crisis, and it came directly from NIMBYism (Not In My Back Yard). Where I have lived for decades, the NIMBYists argued that non single family housing had to be demolished, because it spoiled the views. Even billionaire Feinstein (married to a Senator) said this.

What upper class “democrats” didn’t say was that, by strangling supply, they caused enormous price appreciation of their houses, and homelessness. Better to talk about “systemic racism”,as it accuses We The People to be vicious, perverse, and… despicable. Besides, it accuses of what we are not, thus confusing us.

Meanwhile public transportation was also strangled to make IPOs (Uber, etc.) while Google (etc.) enjoy their own private transportation bus system (using regular bus stops which they stole for themselves, as they generally did not pay for them).

Another despicable manoeuver? Obamacare was rolled out: 25 million new insured (getting government money to pay for it), but small people can’t see their doctors anymore, although they pay private corporations for insurance they don’t get the fruits of (I have used Obamacare for real: it’s a rip-off). Single family housing is also causative of the climate catastrophe, by the way…

***

Not holding my breath that the employees of the conspiracy of the world’s wealthiest men will dare to publish such a contribution to global thinking (the most sedate, cogent, and polite parts above constituted comments to the New York Times; they were all censored; this puts a question towards the honesty of individuals such as mr. Kristof: he reads individual comments. Then he blocks them because, well, his salary depends upon it… La grande excuse des pires salauds à travers les ages: my salary made me do it…)   … They don’t want us to think thoughts we are not supposed to have. Bleating, they like.

A Civilization Whose Media Is Controlled By A Few Is Despicable… and also idiotic. That’s why they die… but it can take a while…

Real Estate Rip-Off, Or Why California Is Full Of Little Trumps In Denial

July 11, 2020

There is excess in California real estate right now. It is driving the California inequality crisis. A cleansing collapse is needed. Extravagant real estate prices have driven enormous inequality… And that has nothing to do with Trump… Just the opposite.

Although the state is nominally, and stridently “democratic”, the average “democratic” voter behaves like a mini-Trump (that’s why they hate Trump so loudly: they are in denial of their true inner nature… they want to scream to themselves that they are not as they truly are… also Trump took away their tax rebates, and redistributed them to low lives).

The reality is this: by refusing the construction of low and middle income housing, a boom of real estate prices was created. Yesterday’s dumps, bought cheaply, became money making machines. The California middle-class strangled low income housing supply in a mix of greed and NIMBYism. This selfish enterprise started as an esthetic claim. A few decades ago, San Francisco congratulated itself for physically demolishing thousands of units of “ugly” low income housing (those thousands of apartments were replaced by a few multi millionaire houses). In other Californian cities, anything not multimillionaire houses is basically illegal to build.

1775 Broadway apartment #8 San Francisco, CA 94109 Pacific Heights 1 Bed 1 Bath
728 square feet 
$994,500… Est. Mortgage $4,759/mo

In San Francisco, a less than 1,000 square feet, one bath apartment, can be more than 1.5 million dollars. Below this, tents in the street, living in filth, is the official city policy. College professors have been known to live inside their cars. I know someone who has lived in his car for twenty years. In another Bay Area city I know all too well, some “democratic” (of course) officials are paid to do nothing, while California governor Newsom put at disposition of the city a small land surrounded by a freeway exchanger, all around, and the busiest railroad in the USA… to be used by the homeless (won’t they be happy surrounded by howling, belching machines?)

To turn this nightmare into a better reality, a good collapse in the existing real estate is what is needed. So as to replace it by something more progressive. Augmenting the taxes on billionaires some more, would help, as the diversity of thinking and initiative in California guarantees they are going nowhere…

The remedy is to build massively, cheap, earthquake-proof, modern, ecological apartments (single family mansions, as presently found in California, would be too ecologically devastating, and should be reserved to millionaires). Developers should be fiscally encouraged to do so.

The manipulated and manipulating have been going around, decrying the US as a systematically racist place full of white racists who have to destroy their inner Hitler.

Last month, the City of Seattle’s “Office of Civil Rights” sent an email inviting “white City employees” to attend a training session on “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness,” a program designed to help white workers examine their “complicity in the system of white supremacy” and “interrupt racism in ways that are accountable to Black, Indigenous and People of Color.

Seattle has also expensive real estate… And this is what low lives worry about… not whether all these “whites” who suddenly “care” are busy calling others racist.

The problem in the San Francisco Bay Area is that the minorities are a majority. Many, if not most, of these minorities are highly skeptical of the indignant “systemic racism” discourse. They feel something is wrong, and rightly so: the leader of the “anti-racist” movement is Nancy Pelosi, a thoroughly white woman of extreme privilege, whose Pacific Height house is probably worth around twenty-five million dollars. Her main residence is a gigantic Napa valley estate, complete with tennis court and twisty access road, where she throws lavish parties for her rightly thinking expensive friends. She also owns a vineyard, beside ownership of the Squaw Valley olympic ski resort. Now that she is done making money from scalps, Nancy will push to change the name… But I digress…

Nancy Pelosi is a plutocrat of the most nefarious type (the war criminal type). Like her California colleague Feinstein, she leveraged politics to build a fortune. Such people are systemic oligarch. To deflect criticism from their systemic colonialism those evil oligarchs are addicted to, they invented the notion of “systemic racism”, which accuses those that they exploit… to exploit them even better, by confusing them further by making them feel bad about themselves, and building a fake explanation of what is wrong in the US.

Although I have been victim myself of some form of racism, more than once, and sometimes dangerously so, and always a heartbreak… I must admit that I am significantly different and somewhat obnoxious, and the white US person in her, or his, purity, can’t tolerate by black heart. The worst racism and abuse that I have seen, though, was from… US intellectuals. “intellectuals” are curiously unappreciative in the US for anybody who comes out of the box of established thinking.

That incapacity to think what’s not supposed to be thought may explain why the fact of systemic real estate abuse being really a machine to make the wealthy wealthier has not been denounced. Chomsky speaks about US imperialism… What about banks, and real estate, and how they augment inequality? Above his pay grade at MIT?

From, say, European eyes, the preceding critique may seem strange: in Europe one cannot use real estate for considerable leverage, by having a bank buy for oneself something one cannot afford… lest it considerably augments in value. Trump cut down the amusement by reducing the interest deductibility down from 1.1 million dollars to $750,000. This is one of the reason why he is so hated by the upper middle class in expensive “Blue” states such as New York, California, Illinois, Massachusetts…

Do not expect this sort of introspection to strike those opinion makers as particularly smart. But this also explains why the angry demonstrations attacked even CNN (fanatically anti-Trump), and Ulysses Grant (US president who won the Secession War when he commanded the US Army), Lincoln (anti-slavery president whose election launch the Secession), or even Supreme Court Justice Douglas, a strong anti-segregationist… What the low lives are saying is that they are left out by the plutocracy, whose modus operandi is to present drastic inequality as a fact of life one can’t escape, and one should tolerate with benign neglect… hence the tent cities and squalor a few minutes from Nancy Pelosi 25 million dollar mansions in San Francisco (she has another eight properties…) This is what Nancy teaches; she is so incredibly concerned by the homeless, and it is the fault of that man in the White House… But one can’t do anything about it, although we try everyday.

Actually, nine years ago, a small peninsula within the San Francisco was occupied by hundreds of homeless, their tents, their dogs and their drugs. I called it then “Obamaville”. So, yes inequality reached a new squalor under Obama. And, no, inequality is not all Trump (inequality indices seem to have reached a peak at the end of Obama’s reign, and have stagnated since). Actually, rather the opposite: Trump loves to build housing… especially given subsidies to do so. In truth, it’s because the “democratic” upper middle class became incredibly wealthier by restricting the housing supply that it hates Trump so much: it recognizes in him the builder, the supplier of housing, its natural enemy…
