On Keeping The People Divided, Distracted, And Controlled

"And in the framework of the collectivity there were the differentiations, the stratification, and the bloodthirsty tensions fed by classes; and finally, on the immense scale of humanity, there were racial hatreds, slavery, exploitation, and above all the bloodless genocide which consisted in the setting aside of fifteen thousand millions of men...For Europe, for ourselves, and for humanity, comrades, we must turn over a new leaf, we must work out new concepts, and try to set afoot a New Man."

-- Frantz Fanon

-- Rosa Luxemburg


The United States government was brought into existence as a direct of its murderous genocide of the Indigenous Native peoples, the brutal slavery of Black people, and the shameless exploitation and indentured servitude of many poor White people and others. To this very day, the U.S. corporate government continues to be singularly, at home and abroad, the most hypocritical, manipulative, and concomitantly violent one on this precious planet of Mother Earth.

Changing the pigmentation of the presidential occupant in the White House has demostratively served to strengthen, give cover for, and perpetuate the systemic exploitation and hypocrisy in and of this government; not weaken it. To deny this is to be in denial of reality. Unfortunately, though people in this nation are increasingly beginning to awaken, a considerable amount of everyday Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people remain enslaved on the mental and political plantations of the corporate owned and controlled Democrat and Republican parties. This must be systemically addressed for what it actually is.


The role of the U.S. coporate-stream - so-called 'news' and information media - is an insidious and debilitating one, particularly as it pertains to crippling and manipulating the masses of everyday ordinary people, and keeping them on the mental and political plantations of the corporate Democrat and Republican party foxes and wolves. The job of the media is to distract, omit, and disinform the people. Thus, ordinary people are mercilessly bombarded with distractions that serve to keep them/us manipulated, divided and controlled. The corporate-stream media is nothing more than the mouth piece of and for the corporate Democrat and Republican politicians, who in turn, are the political servants of the corporate elite. The people in this nation are not stupid, but they are kept ignorant of in-depth pertinent details regarding the pressing national and international issues that directly affect their welfare and best economic and political interests. Like the U.S. corporate elite and their Republicrat [i.e. Democrat and Republican party] stooges, the mission of the U.S. 'news' media is to keep the people distracted, divided, and controlled. This cannot be over emphasized.
