Reverberations


Can you hear that deep, silent anger inside you, pounding like a heavy iron fist on a wooden door, banging relentlessly every time you notice the America of your dreams vanish more each and every day, instead becoming a most unwelcome nightmare that you are impotent to wake up from? Can you feel the hollow pain in your bones, the restlessness running through your veins every time another freedom is gutted or another right is eviscerated, every time your government climbs one more step up the stairwell of corporatism?

Can you feel the reverberations of resentment echoing in your mind every time a politician votes to expand the power of the elitist and corporate world, once more ignoring the will of the constituency? Can you feel the frustration of being impotent to the machinations of a government once defined as of, by and for the People serving only the interests of money and becoming a government of, by and for the corporatist world?

Can you feel the collective anger of millions as the embedded myth of American exceptionalism is quashed through the attainment of knowledge, transforming the fictions of good into the realities of wickedness, mutating what we once believed into an inconvenient truth? Can you feel the betrayal of millions who for decades have been made to believe in the American myth of a nation benign and altruistic, only to become aware that only wickedness, greed and criminality define the Empire, that beyond the smoke and mirrors America’s government is ruthless, corporatist and concerned only for the interests of the elite?

If you can indeed feel the passions of anger and resentment, of pain and restlessness, of frustration and a sense of betrayal, you are not alone, for growing in this country can be heard a silent anger by a silent majority that has realized over the course of the last six years that there is something fundamentally wrong taking shape in their country. Thanks in large measure to 9/11 and the rise of the Internet, millions of human beings throughout the globe have confronted the perpetual conditioning, brainwashing, deception and propaganda disseminated by government and business to control and manipulate humanity.

In the last six years, the myths and fictions of yesteryear have given way to the reality and truth of today, almost as if the paradigm shift caused by 9/11 has managed to create a mental tidal wave of knowledge and truth seeking. Almost as if 9/11 shook the foundations of thought and the precepts of the real, almost as if it awoke millions of humans from the doldrums of hypnosis, today in the present can we see both the reality of the past and the ominous trends of the future. Today, more than ever, the myth of America is being eroded, it is being revealed for what it really is, exposing the lies and the corruptions and the criminality that has for decades been the norm, both in government and with so-called leaders.

The growing vibrations now being felt are the recalcitrant tremors of an awakening populace sensing a profound decadence destroying the very fabric of America. Millions now see with the clear eyes of knowledge, leaving behind the myopic deceptions of propaganda and brainwashing. Millions now realize the lies and deceptions they have been forced to live in and with for so long, living a life full of purposeful charades and delusions, spoon fed to us on a daily basis by our political overlords and the complicit lackeys we once confused for journalists. The enemies of reality are thus exposed to the growing army of truth.

In the thirst for knowledge that has absorbed millions of Americans who are tired of the lies and distortions fed to us by corporatist journalists and corporatist politicians, a strong realization has dawned that among many adversaries We the People face in corporatist America, two do substantial damage to our collective power. Millions of us are now aware, thanks to the wonders of the Internet, that America’s two party system is but a charade hiding a two headed hydra, or duopoly, oftentimes espousing the same ideology and platform. Indeed, since 9/11, one has become more conservative, thus more fascist, while the other, once liberal minded, has become what the conservative one used to be, practically replacing it with the same conservative thought of yesteryear. Yet both are mere fronts for the corporatist world, hiding the fact that democracy is extinct and choice is but a fantasy. In this post 9/11 world, both parties have shifted further right, further in pursuit of war, and further in the direction of imperial hubris. The end of one regime in 2008 will give rise to another, again switching heads but little else, once again having to prove to its masters that it can wage war and conquest, this time competently.

By the same token, the corporatist media has also become over the years, but especially since 9/11, a very dangerous adversary to We the People. This institution has the power of the television, the greatest weapon of mass control ever devised, and thus it possesses the power of influence, of control, and of concocting views and opinions. This adversary, once a bastion of truth and integrity, has over the years become a tool of corporatism to dictate reality and its version of truth to the people. It lies and deceives to protect the interests of corporations and the state, and its journalists turned propagandists do nothing to dispel the rumor that they are nothing but stenographers to those in power. The corporatist media has over the last six years hidden inconvenient truths from the people, as well as distracted us from reality through the tele-trash they saturate the airwaves with. By hiding truth now known through the Internet and telling us the endless lies of the state as if they are sacrosanct its true nature has been exposed for all to see. A greater adversary to truth and We the People does not presently exist.

Both adversaries are further discussed below.


Adversary One: Political Duopoly


Millions see that government and the corporate world have fused together, becoming bedfellows in the rape of the citizenry, slowly but surely transforming the world entire in the unyielding shadow of a small elite. Through greed and the addiction to power corporatism has been birthed, becoming an anti-Christ to billions of human beings, condemning all but a few at the top to evolved serfdom and slavery. The awakened have become aware that corporatism has become the enemy of the people, the greatest threat to humankind, the 21st century’s version of totalitarianism. The awakened have been forced to confront the truth that the state has itself stopped serving the people, becoming not our servant, but a malicious adversary, our corporatist master. In present day Earth, six and a half billion human beings are the enemy of the state, the corporatist state.

With new understanding and realized truths millions are uncovering their eyes to a matrix of deception and concocted fictions, seeing for the first time reality once hidden through a dark, impenetrable veil of fantasy. Today there exists a growing understanding that elected representatives have become the prostitutes of control and the elite, perpetually bending over, unzipping pants and welcoming in the thrusting commands of their masters. Impregnated by greed and power, inhabiting a cesspool of corruption and decadence, the so-called representatives of the people thus spawn the progeny of corruption and criminality, nurturing and rearing the growing corporatism creeping over our lives.

It is now understood that those elected to represent the people are traitors to the principles by which America stands, betraying their sworn duty to protect and defend the Constitution, our rights and freedoms. They have and continue to commit treason in the pursuit of protecting the interests of a foreign nation over those of the United States, choosing to accept subservience to today’s debased version of Sparta (not to mention today’s version of apartheid South Africa) while ignoring the long term health of America.

It is easily seen how these charlatans, born in wealth and elitism, being of diluted blood and long-extinct talent, possess only the skills to deceive, lie, cajole and enrich themselves and their interests, possessing the worst morals in humanity, being devoid of scruples or human decency, manipulating the masses into being elected, later betraying their voters by pursuing not the will of the people, but the investments of the elite.

This small club of miscreants – commonly called politicians – it has become well known, are the worst humanity has to offer, yet their kind are elected over and over again, with the masses forever falling for the never-ending stream of lies, spin, smiles, talking points and public relations stunts. These individuals rarely vote in the interests of the people, almost always choosing to strengthen corporatism, yet the people vote them in nonetheless. Theirs is an exclusive club where to join wealth and power and corruption must be presented and proved. They will do and say anything to get elected, becoming pathetic creatures of insecurity and immorality. The Congress, therefore, is a club of the elite, for the elite and by the elite, and only they and their progeny can join.

In the years since 9/11 those who have woken from their slumber have realized that there is no major difference between the two political parties in America. This duopoly, or two headed hydra, is but two sides of the same coin, representing the same corporatist interests, the same small elite that is invariably molding America further along the corporatist model.

While one party is more fascist and criminal than the other, they both nonetheless help to expand the world’s right-wing dogma, whether it is related to the political or business world.  Regardless of which party controls the presidency, the interests of the corporate world, that bastion of authoritarianism and conservative thought, of wealth and elitism, together with its perpetual expansion of power and control, is always priority number one.
