Dog Poet Transmitting.......
“May your noses always be cold and wet’.
Some seek to evade and appease Draconian oppression; hoping it will find their fellows before it finds them. Maybe things will change before that happens. There’s always hope. Some would rather strike blows against the empire but recognize the futility of individual action as any more than a rallying point once they’ve been dispensed with. Of course, others would prefer to become barnacles on the great ship of state, or occupy a near religious position of ‘nearer the trough to me, nearer to me’ and then there are those who are the direct practitioners of the mischief to begin with. A few choose to live outside the matter entirely, also hoping that mischance or pervasion won’t somehow sweep them up in the net.
There’s no getting around the fact that from a certain wide perspective, things have gone horribly wrong. I’m no Dr. Pangloss, but I do try to believe that everything is perfect; I just can’t see it. I don’t mean to say that everything is actually perfect; it would take a rare and enlightened mind to make that case. What I mean is that everything is outworking and in-working toward perfection, as it takes its own sweet time about it (grin). Well, you don’t have to worry about the seeming lassitude of the cosmos on that account anymore. Time is speeding up and conditions are keeping pace.
If things seem to be moving faster, it’s not because they’ve all of a sudden gained some mysterious acceleration, even if that might be true to a degree. The fact is that for a few decades now, deluded individuals and groups have been industrious about setting the stage for an Orwellian nightmare and now they are on the move. Part of that is the result of emerging powers at other points on the Earth. Part of it is the revolutionary fever that is a reaction to naked oppression and part of it is the population/resources dynamic. My take is that it’s only the cosmos driving the good, the bad and the indifferent toward their appointed destiny. The mysterious power of the universe is pressing on everyone, externally and internally, to declare the nature of their being and intentions, so that they can be sorted out for the benefit of the coming age; an age of universal brotherhood.
I’ve seen any number of people who carry on about how the unions, especially government workers, have too much of what too little there is. That is hardly the problem, no matter how you look at it, unless you actually believe the rich and powerful still don’t have enough and deserve more. Maybe you believe that anyone can be successful and rich if they just apply themselves and the reason they are not, is that they do not apply themselves. That’s bullshit. The bankers play with the money flow and create untenable conditions that make such a scenario more and more difficult by the day.
It’s not the unions and the entitlement programs and the demanding poor, along with the prosperous (snicker) middle class that is the problem. The problem is the blood sucking corporations who moved the manufacturing base into Third World sweat shops to maximize profits. The problem is the banks that squeeze every dime in fees they can get out of the population on which they feed and they are assisted in this by the outlaw, law makers who pocket their portion of the swag as a result. The problem is the media, which is an extension of the government, which is an extension of the corporations and banks and which spins transparent lies and discord among the populace. In other words, while you are getting the shit beat out of you, you hear, ‘who are you going to believe, me or your lying flesh’? The problem is insane wars for profit, which take the canon fodder and war expenses out of the lives and pockets of the people, who have little say in the matter and then the arms merchants, bankers and sundry rake in the swag and nothing comes back.
No capitalist system can prosper or endure for long without a prosperous middle class. This is what America ‘had’. Greed however, never loses its appetite and so the corporations eventually bought the governments, lock stock and barrel, even though they owned the majority shares to begin with.
The absolute disgrace of people making billions of dollars a year and ‘actually’ paying few, if any taxes, is a symptom of terminal illness. Without fair and able dealing, the table upon which it takes place is soon sold off for parts. Your system is a dead man walking and that is why perpetual war is the only reaction possible, for the people at the top. Meanwhile, a fascist police presence and constant over reaction, become the order of the day at home; grope fests at the airport to protect you from something that doesn’t exist, except when the government needs to stage it, in order to ratchet up the abuse, random highway stops for the citizens, while the given reason for them moves with impunity where it will.
It’s a simple process to stop the whole thing. The public simply agrees not to pay their taxes, in emulation of the ones who put them in the situation they are in and the public refuses to go to work, thereby bringing down the government. You don’t need guns and you don’t need tanks or airplanes, or you need is to stop contributing to the operating funds of the machine that is grinding you to powder, while it poisons the world in which you live. You can’t do this after you are dead. You have to do while you are still alive.
It’s simple. It’s extremely simple. The problem is that any movement that comes along to benefit the people is immediately co-opted by those oppressing them, who bribe and threaten the leaders. Maybe you could do without leaders for a little while and activate some kind of stadium wave, flash mob principle, except, instead of showing up somewhere, you don’t show up at all and instead of rising in sequential order, you don’t rise at all. Then perhaps the cosmos will lift you up? I don’t know. It’s worth a shot. Look at where you are now. Intimidation is the nature of the beast in these times. Intimidation is government and corporate policy. I suggest that an entire country that suddenly refuses to participate can be pretty intimidating too.
What follows this is that you very swiftly have to demand the dissolution of the central banks and a coming to heel for the corporations. Government power has to be limited and the original documents have to be brought back into operation. In order to do this you have to get rid of The Supreme Court and you have to, top to bottom, clean out the court system. You have to get rid of every politician who doesn’t support the public’s revolution and you have to put constraints on what’s left as well. Israel has to be cut loose completely, because it is an organized crime syndicate that’s taken control of the country(s). State rights need to become preeminent so that localities can live with what they want to live with and not what the majority prefers go elsewhere. Political correctness needs to go to the auto da fe.
Can America and the Crown Colonies accomplish this? They still think their real enemies come from a scorpion infested wilderness of tribal nomads, instead of being home grown. If you can’t accomplish it, you are screwed. You might as well make your funeral preparations now, unless the cosmos wants to step in and the cosmos is stepping in but that means; earthquakes, plagues, famines, wars and marauding bands of road warriors picking the bones of the carcass.
On the one hand, it looks like it all just has to come down and frontier justice needs to be extended to the predators. On the other hand, perhaps that’s all going to be taken care of. On the other hand, I don’t know. These are just things to think about and consider. In any case, the people who most need to read these things will never find their way here but, maybe the cosmos has plans in that regard too.
It comes down to what you can live with. It’s a matter of how much you can take. You’ve got to make up your own mind and so do your neighbors. These predators are not going to suddenly stop being what they are. That’s their nature too. Well, it’s actually a perversion upon Nature and Lady Nature is going to have something to say about that as well. I don’t know where the safe places are and I don’t know what shape it’s going to take. That’s not my department. Stop, look and listen.
