Monopoly for Morons

OK, here's the deal:

The human race is playing a game of Monopoly. Yes, it's a very complicated version of Monopoly, but the basics of buying, selling, and forming monopolies are still similar to the board game.

However, there are some very critical differences; the most important is that we don't all start off with the same amount of money. The Bush's, Rockefeller's, Rothschild’s, and yes even Gore's, don't start off with the same amount of money as all the rest of us. More specifically, 0.5% of the human race owns and controls NEARLY EVERYTHING -- meaning Boardwalk and Park Place have long since been stashed in the pockets of the vampire elites.

And oh yes, the railroads too and the utilities and the green properties, etc. all belong to the Saudi Princes and Texas energy corporations. In short, we are a "corporate planet", since corporations are like abstract prisons in which the NON elites (i.e., basically, the human race -- us) live like cattle.

So in THIS monopoly game it's the cows against the vampires.

Guess who's been winning this game for the last 6,000 years?

Well, enough already with the money aspect of Monopoly for Morons. Believe it or not there’s a much more important aspect to the game.

And it is . . .

You guessed it! Or at least some of you guessed it. The most important thing about the game of Monopoly for Morons is that WE'RE THE MORONS!

Let's say that differently. Monopoly for Morons is a "game". Now that's a monster to take in. The ultimate social structure of our species is a bloody game. It's not an act of God, it's not hard wired into our genetic code, it's not Destiny or Fate -- it's a 100% homemade human game.

More specifically (exactly like politics) it's a game (1.) invented by the vampire rich, and (2.) its a game which GUARANTEES that you and all your descendants will live like human cattle for uncountable millennia.

But the game thing is very hard to deeply grasp. Remember, we're not talking about biology or physics or theological miracles (assuming they exist). The ESSENCE of what we're talking about is a literal game. I'm sorry to keep hammering at that, but there is nothing in human existence more important than taking in that the human reality structure within which we live and die and whose rules and regulations we obey at the pain of death is a MEANINGLESS, ABSTRACT GAME.

Find out what happens when you suggest we should all kick over the card table of this 100& arbitrary, conceptual game and you'll find yourself accused of being an anarchist or communist, or (God forbid), a revolutionary.

Now the human condition is really NOTHING BUT games (institutionalized religion is one of the most boring ones). So why is this important? It's important because once you profoundly realize that nothing is "written in stone", or "revealed truth" (which generally ends in killing people in the name of God), or "Divine Right", you are overwhelmed with freedom and responsibility.

This is very tricky to talk about, because the real point of this keeps slipping away.

May I try another shot?

Our planet is now girdled with unimaginable suffering (human and otherwise). However, we see only the tip of the tip of the iceberg of human misery that would break of the heart of a God and the infinite tragedy is that this suffering is the inevitable by product of Monopoly for Morons.

So the suffering is coming from where?

Is it coming from nature? No

Is it coming from fate and inevitability? No.

Is it coming from "acts of God"? Duh, no.

The point is that it is coming from something dreamed up by "just us folks" -- not God, not Fate, not Nature, etc. The structure and game rules are grounded in NOTHING. We just made them up -- or rather, the vampire elites made them up so they can STAY vampire elites and all the rest of the pitifully obedient human race can keep living like cattle.

You know, if I wrote a hundred pieces, and a hundred of you also wrote a hundred pieces all focused on the REALITY of unbearable human suffering (i.e., the human condition), we would all be paper bullets, because this suffering is beyond imagination. Sneaking even a peek at this human anguish can burn you to a cinder.

And the deep, horrific cause of nearly ALL of this anguish is Monopoly for Morons.

My dear, dear friends (and I'm sure nearly all of you would be my friends if we had half a chance), it's this filthy, arbitrary, conceptual game which has been reified into a veritable God which we obey and obey and obey -- and then die and die and die.

Got to play the game by the rules.

The hell we do! The hell we do! The hell we do!

Time for DIFFERENT social structures. Time to stop being voluntary cattle. Time to break the brainwashing that we're the tail and the games are the dog.

No, no, no, no, no. Hey, listen to me bark! I'm a bloody DOG, not a tail, and so are you. In fact, we're around six billion dogs, so let's bark the vampire rich back into the hellish slime they crawled out of.

Just think: our OWN game with our OWN rules. Jesus and Buddha (and other enlightened beings) would be proud, because the deepest feelings and intuitions of humanity have always been the same as theirs.

p.s.: It’s exactly like being in a prison cell with one wall open. The human race can walk out of this concentration camp cell of the pig, pig rich anytime we want. How about now? However, we have very, very little time left since the elites are now into hard core genocide. Look at Africa and aids. Look at New Orleans. Look at our trashed environmental protections. Look at our trashed medical plans. Look at Bush/Cheney/Texas energy corporation money cow oil wars. They get the gravy and we get the grave.

The only revolution we need is to replace games with brains. Not to know this in our quarks is to be subhuman.
