The Intercept has a interesting and disturbing article about a new film to see on HBO (watch the trailer). I would definitely like to watch this, but don’t get HBO, so will have to wait until it’s streamed somewhere else. The racial genocide practiced all over the world is at the very heart of the insatiable greed for power and control and the non-stop attempts to dominate the world.
There is some video of the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre murdering (quite badly) a bull elephant (watch the video) for ‘sport’. This is the same demand for total domination found in people that exhibit racism. Kill off the ‘beasts’. It can even be fun for the sick minded bastards that enjoy killing ‘lessor’ creatures.
Killing off nature is second-nature to some people who think nothing of their murderous activities for ‘sport’ or misguided ‘management’. Absurd and desperate attempts to curtail wildlife poaching have been attempted, such as this desecration: Rare falcons are tattooed to escape being sold to Arab sheikhs by poachers.
Protecting people usually receives higher priority then protecting the environment or wildlife, but in the end, both are murdered and destroyed. Historically it depended upon skin color, location and culture, and whether or not there were resources in demand under their feet. This continues to this day, but now also encompasses economic control of entire regions and countries. Not far from me, British Columbia’s Copper Mine is cross-polluting two countries, Canada and the United States for more profits. I’ve fought this battle before with another Canadian company attempting to put a toxic silicon smelter right here in our town.
If you need something to fight for, or against, there are ample ‘opportunities’ for battle. Individuals and citizen-activists generally fare badly in these skirmishes and almost always can only claim temporary victory if they do manage a minor win. Literally billions of lives are being lost, human and non-human as powerful corporations, rapacious murderers and greedy politicians enable genocide and poison to be ‘legalized’ activities protected under the color of law.
It’s a lop-sided war where one side uses murder, legislatures, law enforcement, courts, arrests, prison, and asset forfeiture, along with propaganda, lies, deception and media control. It’s the reason the world is the way that it is today, facing inexorable decline and ultimately collapse, because rapists and murderers have run amok all over the planet. This is the core practice of ‘civilization’ – enable the destroyers and kill off the real protectors while enslaving the rest who must now be ’employed’ (enslaved) for their daily sustenance.
I’m not pretending to compare indentured servitude and wage-slavery with the actual slave trade millions have endured, but the vast majority humans are still slaves to the global economic exploitation and control practiced today. They’ve perfected this practice and legalized the ‘harvest’ of life itself, insulating themselves against meaningful resistance and ensuring perpetual profits, or for as long as that particular resource will last, which is usually when they pivot, either filing bankruptcy or finding new resources and labor pools to exploit. You are now a ‘zek’, a slave in their system of control, ownership and profit, your very life subject to their demands and decisions. We all now live and die at the behest of the plantation owners controlling the entire planet.
It should be obvious to anyone who is astute enough to know what is really going on that this is all a gigantic game of epic proportions. Control the currency, control the resources, control life itself. The quality of your life, even the meaning of your life is being dictated for you. The pretend “choices” you have are summarized as this: How are you going to survive in a world controlled by rapists and murderers?
They all wear suits and ties and pretend to be in charge, presuming authority and authorization, while coveting as much as they can gather in. They’ve never cared about what happens to the rest of the world, everything is viewed through a lens of profits and losses. Millions, perhaps billions try to emulate these men and women, hoping to achieve for themselves the ‘good life’ and the security that riches and wealth provide in a world that has lost all reason and sense long ago.
The only thing these people are creating is a wake of death and destruction behind them – evidence which I have piled up here for years as have many others. Boardroom decisions to expand a mine, exploit new labor in a foreign country, produce more useless products, level yet another forest, or fund another politician, it’s all death and destruction. The mechanics and mechanisms that turn the wheels of ‘civilization’ are churning out endless mountains of destruction and waste, the consequences which are now imperiling future survival on an overheated planet. Absurdly, humans have stupidly devised a system that profits from this behavior, rewarding those in power and control with obscene levels of wealth for which the entire rest of the world is held forever hostage to by the arms of government and laws.
Do you know why the rapists and murderers in suits and ties are almost never held to account? Because the laws are designed to enable their injustice, protecting their immoral activities. Corporations have more rights then real humans. Profits almost always wins except in exceedingly rare cases. All of the destruction in the world, all the pollution, all the extinctions, all of the crimes against nature and humanity has all been legalized in one form or another to ensure that this activity continues.
It’s legal to pay your ’employees’ (bond slaves) a non-livable wage while your company rakes in billions (in some case, per day). You’re expected to give up 40+ years of your life to their ridiculous demands and expectations. It’s legal to rape and pollute and even utterly destroy the environment if your company can make a profit from the activity. It’s legal to displace entire peoples if your demands outweigh their rights to exist and retain their homeland. These utterly absurd ‘legalized’ authorities protecting these rapists and murderers are commonplace throughout the world.
Did you know that all the suffering and injustice people endure today is also all legalized and protected activity? The means to fix these problems (homelessness, health care, poverty, disease, etc.) exists, but remains unresolved because it is more profitable to not rectify these issues. Like any good merchant of death, they choose to fund whichever ‘side’ they want to ensure maximum profits at any time.
Industrialized and legalized activity leading to the destruction of the biosphere has now led to human-induced collapse of Earth’s habitat. Collapse like this doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Collapse of industrial civilization is not a natural event. Collapse of civilization is human-induced, the result of bad practices and worse behavior, all of which was increasingly legalized for the past several thousand years.
Legal ‘authority’ to rape, pillage, pollute and destroy Earth’s habitat and poison the lives of billions is a highly refined art form of doublespeak and deception. The Courts have enabled these gross deceptions to flourish and fester, entire institutions and schools of instruction exists to perpetuate this preposterous monstrosity of legalized death, churning out armies of corporate attorneys and protective agents of death. Legalese ensures that the common man is restrained from resistance until it is much too late and the damage is done. Like the early church, they don’t want you to read what is written and they crafted their own language to ensure you would not understand it if you did.
This is the game being played. You, me, everyone else is being played for the fool. It’s is plainly obvious that a double-standard of life itself exists for the have’s and have-not’s, and that the practices and activities of industrial civilization and the world’s corporations have razed the Earth to the bedrock and even below, trailing a wake of destruction leading to a collapse of the biosphere. We have all been induced, bribed and coerced into going along with this, including being recruited into killing those that don’t. We’ve accepted our “lot” as it were and the gross disparity of privilege and wealth against those who have labored to make them wealthy, the exploitation of lives and livelihoods, the exhaustion and servitude of the “serfs” and slaves eking out their living on their factory plantations.
We’ve exchanged the real meaning of patriotism for paper worship of an outdated document, ignorantly proclaiming the empty words of racists and privileged ‘forefathers’ as our mantra and self-deception, ever the willing serfs to do the bidding of the masters in control, manipulating the masses through propaganda and brain washing.
We allowed it all to happen, in fits and starts, from long ago until now, despite objection and finally, different revolutions (all with the same outcome), yet now perfected into a byzantine art form of privilege and protection, legalized slavery and resource exploitation to the point where it is now utterly irresistible. We are along for the ride now, on this highway of death and destruction, deceit and manipulation, powerless against the pillars of power, unless we finally come to our senses and resist, somehow, someway before it’s too late and human survival on this planet is no longer possible.
There is a common theme that runs through every marginalized or enslaved people throughout the planet. We all have this in common irrespective of race or the color of our skin. Do you know what it is?
We all insist on the right to exist, unmolested and unharmed, free of coercion, respected as to who we are and born as. Instead, we are now all born into slavery and servitude, manipulated and marginalized, branded as ‘consumers’ or ‘others’ of undesirable traits and characteristics, disrespected as human beings, fit for nothing more then to work and be ’employed’ in the servitude of the Empire for our daily sustenance, forced into enriching those who lord over us, objecting little and risking everything if we do.
We are not human beings to the agents of Empire and their battalions of enforcers, we’re categorized, stamped, taxed, regulated and restricted, molded and manipulated into willing slaves to labor away for the furtherance of the Empire, coerced into participating in the ongoing destruction of the Earth. It’s quite clear that we do not have the same rights, privileges and protections that they do. We’re supposed to be ok with that, but a growing number of us are not. Obstructionists and trouble-makers that raise these issues are dealt with, usually murdered or imprisoned. The rest are intended to be satisfied with discarded crumbs and occasional offerings to appease their discontent, while the masters dine on in sumptuous pleasure.
It is not their wealth that I am objecting to, it’s how they got it, and their indifference and selfishness and the double-standards that they’ve created. They created the world as it is today, with all of it’s problems and issues and they did it with impunity and callous disregard. They rigged the courts and the entire economic system to protect their power and control and then outrageously, expect the rest of us to go along with it.
Why should we stand silently by as the poison the air, the water and the soil beneath our feet? Why should we watch our children die from their toxins and poisons they released into the environment? What gives them the right to ruin the world and make it so that the Earth itself is uninhabitable and unfit for human existence? Why should we stay silent as they destroy the only home humanity has? Just because some stupid law says it’s okay? That’s absolutely insane. We might as all just march into the gas chambers and get it over with. The same ‘legal’ justification existed then too.
They want us to stand like stupid sheep, bleating away on the success of reaching Mars and performing tiny experiments as if this was the salvation of the human race. It’s not, it’s a gigantic distraction of epic proportions while the Earth simmers and burns, ignoring the real habitat for humanity and the immediate need for survival of our species (and every other life form now threatened with extinction).
Billions of humans desperately need to wake up and loudly object, departing from the servitude and exploitation of the own lives, refusing to further cooperate and perpetuate this global system of injustice and death. Global resistance is now an extreme priority for every human being while we still can.
