Do you ever have one of those sad moments when you ponder the fate of the human race?
I do — all too often. I’m not sure why that is to be honest. But when I contemplate the pain and the suffering that we inflict upon each other, I am deeply saddened.
There is a lot of pain in the world, unbelievable incomprehensible levels of it, which we have all carefully insulated ourselves from. We’d rather not hear about it or even read about it because it reveals too much about ourselves, including our apathy, our indifference and our inability to stop.
Most of this suffering and injustice is preventable, but the tragedy is, we simply cannot bring ourselves to do it. There seems to be a perverse pleasure in too many of our population who are very busy inflicting suffering and hardship on other people, even making this into a highly profitable business. Entire careers are spent dreaming up new methodologies and technologies, generation upon generation of crazed humans dedicated solely towards inflicting immense levels of suffering on other humans.
Billions, even trillions of dollars are spent on these pursuits, employing millions of people, a majority of who are Americans. And yet the insidious nature of these ‘enterprises’ is never questioned. It is “our business”. In effect, our bread is buttered with the blood splattered corpses of our victims and we console ourselves that this is the so-called “price” for freedom, justice, or defense. We’ll falsely allege that we will pay any price as long as we are not called to stop doing what it is we are doing, which is engaging in the business of death and wholesale slaughter.
Our entire society is complicit in this regard, engaged from birth through death with generation upon generation of blood-sucking zombies programmed to believe and even embrace these deceptions. Our schools, institutions, work places, media sources and government are fully engaged in grinding out more deceived minds, that war is good, just, and necessary. And so is our ‘democracy’ (Western style), which is deemed essential by any means necessary, even if it means deposing the lawfully elected, or the assassination or funding rebels with guns (so they can go kill someone else), the development of weapons and high technology solely for the destruction of other human beings, or engaging in the decades long economic strangulation of ‘enemy’ countries (or even those simply who for silly reasons are just disfavorable to us).
We’re taught to look the other way and never question the morality or justification of these policies and practices. If you were to look too hard and question any of these actions, you are immediately deemed unpatriotic or even a traitor to “your country”, a term which can be taken to mean anything these days, but can always be taken to mean whatever the stronger and forceful make it mean.
We’re in the business of death, our betrothal to this blood-soaked bride is absolutely unquestionable. But would it surprise you that this is (almost) entirely a uniquely American truth?
There are in fact, very few countries that even come close to matching our death merchants. Israel, Russia, China, Germany and a few others of lesser significance all come close, but none rises to the top of the heap as the United States of America as the world’s leading death merchants. We have been widely called the largest terrorist organization on Earth by those we terrorize and oppress and with good reason.
This is our democracy, the “free market” (for very lucrative profits) and global enterprise that America champions throughout the world. We’ve all been taught that we are “beset with enemies” all around the world and that the better way for us to ensure our “very survival” and existence as a nation in this world is to simply be the biggest, baddest bully on the block (despite that we are physically secure to the North, South, East and West from all but the most technologically advanced nations, none of whom we have any real reasons to fear anymore).
We’re indoctrinated by scumbag politicians to “be afraid”, be “very afraid” lest the bogey men catch us napping, enemies which we are constantly told lie in wait all around us despite the sheer distance and difficulty of what these claims of theirs actually mean, and the absolute total lack of real proof.
Which means this claim of theirs is total bullshit and always was.
Our enemies, where they exist (and they do exist), all have legitimate complaints with the United States, which usually includes (our) illegal bombing and invasion (covert and overt) of their country, the killing, assassination and kidnapping of their citizens and political leaders, the rape and pillage of their land and resources and people, decades long crushing economic sanctions and embargoes, the withholding of medicine, food, agricultural machinery and aid necessary for their basic survival, the illegal funding and support of terrorists groups within their borders, the toppling of their political leadership by foreign agents, the manipulation and control of their entire economies and methods of living, the suppression of their technological and agricultural development, the forced servitude and slave labor by foreign companies, and of course, the duplicious double-standards employed by American corporations and political leaders designed to enforce policy and business favorable exclusively to the United States of America, despite the crushing effects it may have upon their citizens and long term economic and resource health.
Enemies, where they legitimately exist, are not without legitimate complaint. Yet our policy has been to continue on this destructive path of suppression and oppression and intervention wherever we can. It is blatantly obvious that this is very deliberate, planned and orchestrated, to include hundreds if not thousands of ‘false flag operations’ where the United States has deliberate engaged in espionage, sabotage, assassination and interference — while declaring our ‘innocence’ and non-involvement and dupliciously, our so-called “right” to interfere in the sovereign affairs of other nations. We would imprison, torture and SHOOT the agents that tried this here, yet we do this ourselves all over the world.
It remains factually true to this day, that the superiority of the United States of America rests solely upon our ability to suppress the development of other nations in economic ability, military strength and technology (which is also how we stoled this land from its original inhabitants in the first place), and the permitting the development of their natural resources primarily for our own use. This is why America is the ‘land of plenty’, with cheap imported goods and unbelievably low prices, this is the real price of our military interventionism and corporate monopoly throughout the entire globe. We are what we are today, economically, militarily and domestically, because we literally stoled this through force, bloodshed, oppression, and terrorizing the other nations of the world to give this to us. Just to be clear here, economic strangulation is no different then a military bombing campaign, and we’re very quick to use either one or the other, or both.
And many of us wonder “why that hate us for our freedoms”, which are illusions that exist only in the minds of the deceived millions in our midst. Do you realize that this deception stops at our borders? That the rest of the world fully understands what America actually is and what it has become? That these illusions of ours are unique entirely to our brain-dead masses of slaves and ‘servants’ to Empire? We’re the laughing stock of the Earth, derided as the real oppressors of life, liberty and freedom that we claim to embrace. Our ‘freedom’ is in truth an illusion.
We are free to engage in war and the oppression of our fellow man. Even if we are not engaged in the business of war, we are taught to ‘climb to the top’ by besting our fellow employees and to take advantage of every opportunity. This is how you “get ahead”, by exploitation and advantage. Only by excelling and competition can we advance ourselves in this fucked up society, which we then jealously guard against all would-be ‘usurpers’ of our privileged positions.
This is the normal behavior for our civilization, that we are effectively nobody unless we are “somebody” which requires our sacrifice of morals, courage, critical thinking and the conviction to do the right thing. Our society blesses the corrupt, the depraved, the defiled and deranged, advancing these sadistic bastards and psychopaths to positions of power, prestige and ‘importance’. We’re even so stupid as to make these same men and women our ‘leaders’, to advance our cause and position in the world.
We select them from other depraved individuals who have ‘succeeded’ in life and wealth, having established themselves upon the heap of humanity as the most ambitious and successful. But if we were brutally honest about it, we would designate them as the most deranged and dehumanized humans around and have nothing at all to do with them.
I have always believed that the average man or woman simply wants to live in peace, all over the world. Essentially, to be left alone to live their lives without fear or favor from any quarter. We have no real quarrel with each other, even across national boundaries, but quarrel we do, incessantly — which invariably leads to conflicts of terrible suffering and pain.
These quarrels are always fanned into flames by our politicians (on both sides of every fence) and the complicit media, which inevitably leads to war, conflict, sanctions and untold human suffering. This has been the story of the ages, where kings and queens lashed out against each other, drenching their citizens in blood baths of gory rivers with floating limbs, hacking and slashing each other to pieces before the ‘victor’ was declared, lands were seized and the citizens subjugated under new tyrants.
This too is all total bullshit.
Some would say that the role we play in conquest and conquered is the human condition. Perhaps it truly is, because it surely does appear to me that we cannot behave in any other way. And I would be the first to admit that conquest is sometimes necessary. There is no other way to deal with bullies, murderers and thieves, they must be bested by whatever means necessary, and by so doing, we sometimes become what we have learned to hate (some of us, anyway). This self-loathsome behavior is regrettable, but I do not see any other way at times.
The modern world preens and pretends that ‘diplomacy’ is the pathway to human rights and the betterment of the human condition, replacing our swords and our guns for diplomats and politicians, international agencies and non-government organizations, while always holding these weapons in ready reserve. And sometimes, it works. Oftentimes, it does not and the real fangs come out in this lethal battle of will and demand, force and power.
All too often, these entities can make the situation worse, or allowing by their inaction, incompetence or simply indifference, the suffering and misery to continue. This can last for decades, while entire generations of humans are wiped out, and the world watches (but only sometimes, if it catches their interest) and waits. The Palestinian condition is one such example in current memory. But the world awaits and does nothing. Our institutions fail exactly where they have been charged and tasked to excel, and the suffering continues endlessly.
We are seemingly unable to solve this problem with ourselves. For every complexity and organization that we add to this volatile mixture of incompetence, greed, corruption, apathy and indifference, we almost always fail. Where we do succeed, we often “succeed” too late to prevent the countless deaths of millions upon millions of lives, but nobody is counting. The numbers of victims are in fact now so huge, they boggle the intelligent mind and trouble the soul.
Death becomes us, as we plunder each other and slaughter our way around the world, exporting our brand deathocracy at the point of a gun. Words all too quickly fail our politicians and sanctions and economic embargoes follow, soon to be followed with a long train of covert or overt weapons, guns, funding, ‘advisors’, secret training camps and puppet presidents handpicked to favor Western instructions.
Insurrection is our business, profits are the goal and we’ll even play both sides of the fence if it suits our ends.
It’s all bullshit, as we endlessly send our sons and now our daughters off to die on behalf of our international corporations and death merchants. We’re surrounded by clueless, arrogant politicians, uselessly (and insensitively) carrying the torch of past or present ‘offenses’ of “American rights” against foreign nations, ordering more blood and more sacrifice to Molech. And we blindly, even cheerily comply with this absolute insanity, birthing entire generations in a frenzy of lust and patriotic breeding, distributing new mincemeat for the gristmill they’ve designed.
Over 12,000 robots are now engaged in operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, a disturbing trend indeed. Removing the human quotient includes more then just removing the suffering and fatigue inflicted upon the soldier, it also removes the moral gauge and depravity of war and death to afar, which is what I’m really talking about as death becomes us all.
We have lost our moral compass as a people, a very long time ago. Our measurements of wealth, power, position, status, income and possessions is entirely lost upon the victims we are burning alive with our bombs, our guns and our callous indifference. All they know is that they are suffering and are in great peril daily for lack of food, water, medicine or even a decent place to lay their heads down at night. And we, we did this to them. This is our fault and our doing. Their security in their persons, a right which we take for granted here in this country, is an entire lifetime in doubt for them, they never know when they may perish from afar by the weapons developed in this country.
American arrogance and indifference to the suffering we inflict throughout the world is truly legendary, but this is nothing to be proud of. This is a cloak of shame which we can never remove. We are noted at times for our benevolence and charitable giving, but this truly pales in comparison to the amount of funding and the sheer effort we give to our merchants of death and destruction. The two figures are not even remotely comparable.
The truth is, we are what we do. Irrespective of what we say, or what we claim, we are what we “are” in deed and in action. We are measured by what we actually do. And what is it we do? We kill. We pillage. We attack. We undermine. We destroy. We enact economic sanctions and policies in our favor. We build vast arrays of bombs, weapons, planes which in turn employ millions upon millions of death merchants in America, and we give them to terrorists countries so that they in turn can do the same as we do. They kill, bomb, attack and oppress their ‘enemies’ and then come back to us, begging for more (which we repeatedly give them).
Our entire economy and social structure is built around this concept, even if it bankrupts us all. It is the very fabric of our civilization and in fact, dates back thousands of years. But unlike the past, America has made this into a global enterprises, it is the foundation of American society. We’ve highly refined the business of death and destruction and understand fully what it is that we do, but we definitely do not like being reminded of these facts. Because we’re supposed to know better. We’d rather put on a happy face and pretend that none of this is so, that even if it is, that it is all so very, very necessary. Anything but the truth. The pictures of blown up babies and little girls with American bombs deployed by Americans just doesn’t seem to bother us enough.
All I know is it is all bullshit, every single bit of it. It’s crap shoved through a patriotic straw injected under high-pressure into your brain, making you stupid, brainwashed and blind, through and through, right down the marrow in your bones.
I do not buy into the lying media and forked-tongue politicians on either side of the fence who ‘declare’ my enemies for me. I refute the idea that there even IS a fence. If there is, I didn’t create it and I want nothing at all to do with it. I sure the hell won’t get involved in throwing rocks over this mythical fence that these bastards created. If I’m going to throw rocks, I’m going to throw them at the people that are causing all of this hatred. They’re the ones that deserve it and nobody else.
Death becomes us, because that is in truth, what we are. It is the human condition that lies underneath all of our civility and civilization. It lurks beneath all of our development, advancement, science, intelligence and education. We are brutish animals, except we’re actually worse then animals, we are the only species that engages in wanton wholesale slaughter, building entire civilizations around it, reveling in it, only temporarily satiating our endless bloodlust again and again and again. Our victims remain faceless to us, we don’t care about them and never have.
We’ve designed ourselves and our society around this nature of ours, hiding it all behind thinly robed veils of benevolence and compassion, which we are quick to rip away and tear down, reverting back to what we really are when we’re angry or attacked or stirred up to hatred by our masters. Death becomes us all, it is our destiny and our nature.
And as I keep reminding you, it’s all bullshit. It is the endless and rather stupid cycle of humanity that builds walls around everything, including their own minds. The blinders are on, and we cannot see rightly. Death becomes us all because we refuse to understand that we don’t need these rotten depraved bastards that did this to us and never did.
