Why Destroy America?

Americans are greatest, most goodhearted, naive and stupidest people on the planet.

We want to believe in the inherent goodness of people. When we see a someone manifesting evil or acting in a inexplicably destructive fashion, we’re compelled to imagine that there must be a “reason” for such aberrant behavior. You see this when a wife or a husband kills their spouse. We are so quick to accept any rationale that will explain the murder: she must have had a secret lover, or he did it for the insurance money... Our minds just don’t want to believe that someone’s behavior can be simply an expression of pure evil.

It is this baseline belief in the goodness of our fellow man that blinds us to  much of the malevolence in the world.

Today, the ruling class in this country is executing an agenda that is destroying our economy, lobotomizing our people, dismantling our freedoms and turning what was once a great republic into a fascist dictatorship.

But even though this evilarchy is enacting this national take-down right before our eyes, the vast majority of Americans cannnot, or will not see it… why?

It’s because they cannot conceive of a rationale which can explain why a government – which they believe inherently has our national interests in mind – would intentionally inflict injury on our country and our people.

Being unable to fathom the motivations of villainous actors causes us to deny and ignore the evil they perpetrate. Instead, we wave off the shrill warnings of those who are alarmed, and in effect we simply refuse to believe that which we simply cannot comprehend.

This denial of the uncomfortable does not bode well for our society. It’s quite likely that one day we are going to realize that our nation was undone by our own political naivete, our profound lack of imagination and our shameful apathy.

But for today, let’s ask the question afresh: Why would the powers-that-be intentionally take down the United States’ economy and in doing so thrust the nation, and world, into yet another cataclysmic depression?

The answer, I’m afraid, is that the money powers require exactly such a catastrophic world collapse in order to enact the “solutions” which are in fact essential steps in their continuing strategy for world control and domination. Americans, you see, had gotten a bit too uppity for their liking. We had gotten used to life-sustaining wages, to ample and affordable health care, to leisure time and vacations, pensions and social security. In short, Americans were far too comfortable, and  comfort leads to independence. And if there’s one thing the ruling elite cannot abide, it’s an independent populace. What they want instead is obedient workers – to staff their offices and factories; they want gluttonous consumers – to purchase and consume the poisonous crap they pump out; and they want docile voters – to rubber stamp their hand selected political puppets and accept their self-serving policies and their illegal wars.

This is all part of their long standing mode of operation. The elite have always known that in a “free” society you must maintain the nominal consent of the people in order to effect major policy changes, such as sweeping alterations of laws or the initiation of wars. They know that the people – who treasure peace and stability – will resist dramatic societal changes, unless those changes are seen as necessary due to some extreme conditions.

So, when the ruling classes want to make major changes, they know that they must first create the crisis which requires the “solutions” they desire. If it’s done correctly, the people will suspect nothing and believe naively that the premeditated measures were done purely for the greater good.

But the interests of the rich and powerful rarely coincide with those of the people, and always serve to provide the elites with greater wealth, greater power and greater control over the people, governments and resources of the world.

So we live in a country constantly engaged in illegal and undeclared war. We demonize sovereign nations who refuse to be co-opted by our Anglo-American financial imperium. We sign-on to international trade agreements that enrich corporations while shelling our economy. We pass legislation that take away our freedoms and dismantle our Bill of Rights. We are subjected to a levels of surveillance that the Nazis would have envied and an increasingly militarized police state that is chillingly Gestapo-like. We kill people indiscriminately with our drones, torture and imprison without due process.

Let me ask you… are these the policies and practices of a benevolent, freedom loving democracy?

Or are the instead indicative of a government overruled – and in the service of – a military, industrial, corporate, financial cartel, bent on exerting and expanding its control over a vast, world-wide empire.

Do the math yourself. Connect the dots.

And while you’re doing so, take a moment to consider why you so reflexively support and defend the status quo. For it’s one thing to hope for the best. But when we ignore the existence of evil, we also enable it.

An American Apology

Uncle Sam SorryAs an American citizen I would like to formally apologize to the world for the despotism, barbarism, corruption, violence and evil that agents of my government have perpetrated upon the world.

Our bankers have subjected your developing countries to debt slavery. Our operatives have assassinated your leaders when they dared to oppose America’s agenda. We have monopolized the oil trade, subjecting all other countries in the world to the hidden taxation of the petro-dollar system. We have propped up autocratic dictators when it served our purposes, subjecting whole populations to their violence and malign neglect. We have let loose our corporations upon the world destroying local economies and exploiting local workers and resources. We have invaded and occupied your sovereign nations and killed millions of innocent people under the false banners of freedom and democracy. Our CIA has channeled secret funds to Terrorists in order to delude us into believing there’s a threat to our nation worthy of our endless military spending. And they have reaped untold billions as they secretly support the world drug trade and launder the drug lords ill gotten gains through our corrupt banks and financial institutions.

It has become painfully clear in the course of the past decade, that the American Government and its agents are a trauma upon this world, and for this I am truly sorry.

I am sorry, too, that we have been so blind to this dark, nefarious aspect of our country’s leadership, and that we have fallen so meekly for their propaganda depicting our nation as defenders of liberty and justice, while we offer the the world Freedom only to do as the US demands, and deliver our Justice with bombs, drone attacks and bullets tipped with depleted uranium.

Although it is no real defense, I plea profound ignorance. You see, until recently, most of us Americans were under the naive impression that our country’s international ambitions were completely non-aggressive, that we conducted ourselves as an exemplary world citizen with charity toward all and ill will toward none. We persisted in imagining our national character was the same as that of our ancestors who bravely fought a war of independence against Great Britain, or our parents and grandparents whose industry and valor changed the outcome of two world wars. In our minds, America didn’t start wars… we finished them.

Obviously all of that changed. America now starts wars, invades and occupies countries, we conduct ruthless torture and operate killer drones, all without respect to borders or national sovereignty and all in the name of protecting Americans from who… you?

It must be difficult for you to fathom how we Americans could have been so blind to our country’s malignant behavior for so many years. Hell, it’s difficult for us to understand. You see, we Americans still believe that we live in an open society. Caught up in the out-dated notion of  our “free and open press”, many of us still believe that all it takes for us to be fully informed on the major issues and events of the day is to read the newspaper and watch the evening news, so for most of us any news or information that is not covered by the main stream media is by definition either untrue or unreliable.

For example, we don’t believe that there is any corporate control or government censorship of our media because… wait for it… we would have heard about it. The same circular illogic allows us to dismiss all kinds of government, corporate, military, security and financial misdeeds for, after all, it wasn’t in the papers.

And of course we could never believe that there is a hidden power structure in our country which is in fact superior to our elected government. That this group has in fact been running the country from behind the scenes for quite some time. We cannot conceive of how such a secret establishment could ever have amassed the enough power to control of the Financial, Military, Industrial and Security institutions of our country. And since no one has identified these wealthy, powerful and influential individuals, institutions and dynastic families… well they just can’t really exist.

Fortunately, many Americans are becoming aware that our country is no longer the free and open state it once was – that in fact we are living under a system of censorship, surveillance and diminishing freedoms increasingly resemble that of Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.

I’m not sure how, or if, we can turn this around. The power’s that be are deeply entrenched and we the people are profoundly diminished. But I do feel that the first, necessary step is to admit that we have a problem, and we do… our government has gotten out of control and is now wreaking havoc upon of the world.

I hope you can forgive us our ignorance, but in truth, we knew not what they had done.

 

Sand in our Ears

HeadInSandAmerica has lost its way. We have lost our position as world leader in anything other than military power. Our political system is mired in party brinksmanship and completely incapable of solving any of our national problems, much less lead us toward a better future. Our economy has been shelled by the profit-maximizing, off-shoring of our industries by the globalist/capitalist elite. Corruption of our media and educational systems have left most of us either uninformed, misinformed, or just plain unable to comprehend the problems and issues facing us as a country and a world. We have become so accustomed to being lied to by our government that we have come to accept their deceit and corruption. We are subjected to a level of surveillance and invasions of our privacy that was once common only in countries like Nazi German and the Soviet Union. And we stand in dumb incomprehension as our constitutional rights are dismantled by the very people who are sworn to defend them. And meanwhile, our once world class standard of living has steadily eroded, with more people unemployed or on assistance than at any other time in our country’s history.

We are failing as a country… and badly.

But oddly enough… we really don’t appear to be all that angry about it.

With all that is wrong with this country, all that has been lost, stolen and debased, you have to wonder why more of us are not protesting. Why there aren’t marches every week, why we aren’t calling for the heads of our elected officials – or at least the bankers and capitalist criminals who have destroyed our way of life.

You have to wonder indeed, what might it take to get a rise out of Americans these days?

There is still a lot of “Love it or Leave it” mentality out there today. But though there is still alot to love about this country, there are many, many things that have gone horribly wrong. The source of the problems are much more complex, more sinister, and more hidden from our view than many of us would like to believe. Too many of us are too quick to accept the simple solutions, or point fingers at the obvious villains that are placed before us. Too many of us fall for the divide-and-conquer mind control techniques of the paid propagandists in the media. We are cleverly divided into right and left sides – with red meat thrown between, us so that we have something to fight over. But we cannot see that we are not each other’s enemy – but all victims of the master class who pits us against one another.
