“美国超级富豪的“弥天大谎”战略”

美国超级富豪的“弥天大谎”战略

贝一明(Emanuel Pastreich)

过去几年中发生的大规模财富转移使少数人得以控制食物及各种产品的提取、生产、分配和销售方式乃至货币的价值。哈佛大学、世卫组织、《纽约时报》、《反击》(Counterpunch)、《国家评论》、《世界社会主义者》网站、美国以及各国政府的专家被他们豢养,对他们予取予求、唯命是从,发布迎合他们心意的声明,为极权统治正名。

如今,财富集中的速度之快已达到人类历史上前所未有的程度。其部分原因在于技术的指数级进步让某些人以超出大众理解的复杂方式操控全球货币和其他金融产品成为了可能。

全新的AI技术令虚假信息可以通过商业媒体在全球范围内传播,让人难辨真伪。然后超级富豪便利用人们心中的困惑分化、误导美国乃至全世界人民,借自己提拔的权威专家之口发布相互矛盾的观点,而这些观点大多没有科学依据。

要理解为何大批接受过良好教育的美国人无法应对当前的危机、为自己并不信任的强制疫苗令背书,我们便必须考察对方为塑造、控制知识阶层所采取的宏观战略。从某种程度而言,富豪们在为自己争取时间。地缘政治格局发生突变,让知识阶层不知所措;他们觉得自怜自艾、抗拒现实更为容易;而新一代有担当的知识阶层的诞生尚需时日。因此类似于20世纪30年代的反法西斯运动无法于今日重演,可这种运动恰恰是切实反集权主义行动的核心。

我们有必要关注超级富豪的顾问精心策划、抛向大众的某些虚假选择和诱导策略——他们的意图是撕裂美国社会、分裂国家,按照他们的构想发起内乱,这样大众便无法达成普遍共识,可以在无知无觉的情况下为超级富豪卖命。

让我们来看一看他们所使用的各种狡猾策略。

“新冷战”

商业媒体正在整齐划一地炒作美国与中国之间的“新冷战”;几百家媒体平台都已根据自己的政治风格对其经过重新编排。此类说法,不论是保守版的还是进步版的,都以中美之间前所未有的、源于“中国扩张论”的紧张态势为核心。

或许美国关于新疆、香港的报道并非空穴来风,但他们的故事如此荒诞失真,让我们不得不将其归类于“虚幻小说”。

关于媒体如何炒作这场“新冷战”,似乎无人进行过严肃讨论——要知道,这些媒体平台的股东想要通过《2020年国防拨款法案》大幅提升美国军费预算,从中渔利。同时,跨国银行和企业怎样煽动领土纠纷与民族冲突、以重演一战之前的国家军事化管理,这种不计后果的策略与产能过剩和生产过剩现象有何关联,以及“战时需求”这一魔法是怎样被人用来将危机化为天赐良机的——这一切根本无人提及。回想当年,法国、英国和德国的银行在这场闹剧中一边窃喜一边狼狈为奸;即使战争已经打响,它们仍在暗中攫取暴利。

只需花上几分钟的时间,将1914年英、法、德全球金融领袖所采取的策略同如今中美两国金融利益集团所耍的手腕稍作比较,民众即可了解真相。

我们无法接触科学分析,却日复一日地被一个投资银行旗下高薪小卒所宣扬的“修昔底德陷阱”等陈词滥调轰炸;他是对纽约与上海的富豪们俯首帖耳、又被对方赞赏有加的所谓“先知”。这个人,便是哈佛的灰衣主教格雷厄姆·埃里森。

倘若我们想弄清楚邪恶的“弗兰肯斯坦联盟”之所作所为,弄清楚华盛顿与北京之间签订的“死亡契约”内容为何,我们首先便要打破“民族国家”这一全球银行家给知识阶层套上的愚蠢桎梏,直接考察全球的超级富豪是如何彼此勾结的——他们的企图,是摧毁劳动者原有的生存之道、耍手腕让中美两国的劳动者为敌、阻止民众为保护自身利益而团结在一起。

格雷厄姆·埃里森和他在哈佛的伙伴对哈佛的大股东——高盛集团的阴谋避而不谈。该企业计划利用美国与中国之间的经济冲突,以“应对竞争”为名,在两国全面实现工厂现代化、大规模应用AI技术。

战争的确存在,但它并非中美之战,而是全球金融家对人民之战,而他们开战的目的,是控制中国和美国每一位劳动者的资产、钱财、行动、身份乃至身体。在中国行不通的,会首先在美国推行;反之亦然,要么便选择其他国家为目标。

也许埃隆·马斯克和马云并非公然反对狭隘国家主义观念的杰出代表,而是垄断世界资源与资产这一阴谋的参与者。

这一过程,尽管人们不费吹灰之力便可使用开源资料来加以记录,然而它已被定为“出格的阴谋论”,排除于大众的讨论范围之外。“权威人士”告诉我们,要正确理解今天的中美矛盾,只能参考公元前5世纪的斯巴达与雅典之战。

我们现在所目睹的一切,或许只能用这一观点来解释:鉴于目前正在发生的财富极度集中现象,中国和美国如今都不作为单纯的政治单元而存在。这一分析结论,您在别处绝不可能看到。

那么,国防支出因“新冷战”而增加,其直接结果为何?

让美国、中国、中东,乃至全世界的国防开支飙升——这一机会令跨国银行垂涎三尺。许多金融利益集团都从会这笔支出获益,因此它们燃起野心也不足为奇。民众每日听到的,只是关于“新冷战”的虚构观点;至于谁通过武器系统从全球——包括中国——敛财,他们根本不会听到与之相关的任何一个字。

美国国防部和情报部的开支不再用于培养情报人员与了解亚洲各国政治文化的新一代知识阶层。因曾在中国求学、学习中文而无法通过安全调查、从而不能在政府内任职的人与日俱增。

据称上述这笔钱大部分都被花在了价格高得离谱的战斗机、坦克、反导系统和卫星上,而事实证明,这些东西在多数情况下根本无甚效率甚至毫无用途。

尽管军队和情报机关中实务人员收到的命令日益荒谬,但他们仍在兢兢业业地工作。在某种程度上,他们能够劝自己相信称中国的AI技术、无人机和机器人给美国造成了巨大威胁的报道并非虚言。当然,同美国入侵伊拉克时一样,他们在某些人的刻意安排下需要夜以继日地忙碌,因此几乎无暇集中精力深入思考。

没有人会告诉大众乃至握有顶级机密安保/SCI权限的人士,目前人们开发的AI技术,日后将会成为通过商业媒体对大脑施加破坏性刺激削弱人民的思考能力(军队人员将首当其冲),在不同的时间框架和日程安排下逐步分化、误导两国民众,以驯化地球公民,最终实现超级富豪专权统治的武器。

下一代微型无人机和机器人,以及低轨道卫星上的能量武器是将在新时代伟大的“诺曼底登陆行动”,或者民众、民族国家之间的“雅典——斯巴达”战争中派上用场,还是最终将被用于对敢于反抗夺取全球霸权之人的中、美民众发动袭击?

战争已经打响。中国、美国以及其他许多国家都已成为他们腐蚀科学、不择手段地借新冠等疫病流行之机为生物法西斯统治摇旗呐喊的战场。

达拉斯、武汉、大阪、德累斯顿……在一座座城市中,他们正在利用AI算法来封闭公民社会,而一群群可以随时消灭“心怀不轨之徒”的无人机和机器人也在跃跃欲试。

值得一提的是,去年《纽约时报》突然对警察暴力执法事件大感兴趣;要知道,几十年来,该报一直对相关问题视而不见。他们并不关注系统性腐败,只是想要不断地通过各种耸人听闻的新闻来为将来的政策转变建立舆论共识。

他们的目的也许并非减少警察暴力执法现象,而是削弱公众对警方的信任,从而撤回政府投给人类警察的资金。他们这样做的意图,究竟是让警察与民众之间的联系更为紧密,还是驯化公众、诱导人们开始接受外表温和却毫无人性的无人机和机器人来充当警员?

诸位的选择:气候变化还是新冠疫情?

跨国银行、企业及其背后的超级富豪已经收买了其运营者,命令他们将有名无实的“选择”放在公众面前,目的是分化我们、阻止我们齐心协力发起反抗。预先编排好的自由——保守之争是这一策略的核心。尽管该策略已推行几十年,各种旨在煽动种族、文化或性别冲突的机密计划却仍在开展,精英们也在愈发肆无忌惮地从人民手中夺取权力。

解决气候变化问题/承认新冠疫情是一场大骗局——让民众在二者之间“作选”,是这一诱导策略的核心所在。想要同时研究这两个问题的人,最终会发现自己在任何地方都找不到书面资料。人人都只能要么二选其一,要么眼睁睁地看着它们在公众话语中消失。对于妄自尊大、视自己的署名为宝物的“公共知识分子”而言,让步妥协根本无甚要紧。

我们只能要么承认碳排放、生态系统的破坏以及以“增长”和“消费”为中心的危险经济发展模式会对气候造成不良影响,要么单单指出新冠疫情根本没有科学根据,他们推行强制疫苗令的宗旨是让权贵阶层控制我们的身体,剥夺我们工作、求学、随意就医的权利。

一方面,我们看到诺姆·乔姆斯基、克里斯·希杰斯等“进步派”知识分子对矿物燃料的危险和被石油企业收买的共和党人无视科学一事大谈特谈。他们观点中,某些的确有可取之处,但某些则是为迎合投资银行的需要而订制的。比如说,他们对太阳能和风能推崇备至,却从不提及相关的可再生能源工程都是由企业银行策划、实施的。这些知识分子也不会告知民众怎样才能在约翰·洛克菲勒迫使他们对大石油公司产生依赖性之前自行生产可再生能源。

这些进步人士还将比尔·盖茨的新书《如何避免气候灾难》(How to Avoid a Climate Disaster)束之高阁,转而任盖茨基金会为所欲为,让它能够利用“气候危机”来收紧对民众的政治与意识形态控制。

另一方面,还有一群人,他们通常与唐纳德·特朗普或者小罗伯特·肯尼迪过从甚密,众口一词地谴责对新冠“疫情”的炒作、口罩令和强制疫苗令。这股势力已经掌握愈发成熟的媒体资源,可以用充足的科学数据来支持自己的论点。与之相关的团体在大多情况下会被政府和绿色和平组织拒于门外、打上“极端主义”或“反科学”的标签——虽然他们讲的都是实情。

上述团体尽管会阐述新冠疫情背后的科学道理(尽管有时并不准确),却对气候变化、生物多样性系统的崩溃、水力压裂开采法和微塑料对环境的破坏等问题闭口不言,甚至不屑一顾。他们愿意同比尔·盖茨、乔治·索罗斯等富豪对峙,但一看见涉及到英国石油公司和艾克森美孚的问题,便被吓得双膝发软。

这一计划的另一环节,是设法通过离间解释911事件的各个团体来进一步破坏美国的科学基础。这一骗局明显与高中物理课上传授的物理定理相悖,却成为了因气候变化、社会不公和系统性种族歧视而义愤填膺的“进步团体”避之唯恐不及的禁忌话题。

保守团体将关于911事件的帖文发布在了QAnon和“X22报告”等网站上,但他们并非无所顾忌。此类网站上,许多911事件和新冠疫情的相关话题都与基督教哲学有所关联。这些帖文会提到人性之恶,且引用《启示录》的内容予以支持。尽管他们的说法或许不无道理,但这样一来,这些文章对公众的吸引力也会大大降低。

上述帖文通常以一种简单的方式描写乔治·索罗斯、希拉里·克林顿等与“左翼”相关的人物,不会就各种事件背后世界金融利益集团的复杂关系进行系统性分析。保守派新闻源也没有论述过何人拥有《巨人:全球权力精英》(Giants: The Global Power Elite, 皮特·菲利普斯著)一书中所阐述的一切。

同时,比尔·克里顿、巴拉克·奥巴马等高层政治人物曾为恋童癖搜罗“雏妓”、参与撒旦教活动等丑闻也限制了上述保守派报告的影响力。有大量证据表明,在华盛顿掌权的人物中存在恋童癖;还有文献称此类事件经过刻意安排,意在收集政坛人物的负面信息。然而上述事件反映的不过是一种权色交易,并不像保守派报告所描述的那样举足轻重。

高层政治人物也许参加过撒旦教的仪式,但就我对华盛顿掌权人物的观察,他们似乎并不那样明目张胆。我的看法是,保守派或许道出了某些真相,但强调撒旦教是为了设下信息传播的门槛、限制受众范围。大概秘不示人的法律不仅禁止主流媒体报道关于新冠疫情的真相,而且要求可以碰触敏感话题的人必须在发布的信息中强调基督教意识形态,阻止其在进步派团体中广泛传播。

阴谋论陷阱

制造令不同团体在对其进行解释时莫衷一是的事件已经成为权贵阶层的产业。关于大规模枪击与少数族裔遇袭事件的各方面报道大相径庭,令美国本可达成共识的各个团体龃龉不合。在基本观念层面的深刻分歧令他们的协调合作变成了不可能之事。

保守派认为,少数族裔遇袭与大规模枪杀事件并未真实发生,相关报道不过是言过其实的噱头,气候变化更是用来维护权贵阶层利益的骗局。

首先,我要声明,目前上述事件并没有经过公开的国际性调查,因此我在这里的论述也不过是一种猜想。但我还是要冒险揣测,不论是主流媒体的报道还是充斥着阴谋论的博文,都已经有意把我所要讲的关键之事剔除在外。

很明显,公共知识分子和记者正在刻意回避有关上述事件的尖锐问题;他们退而求其次,只是评论被害者家属遭遇了不敬,暗示这些事件是虚构出来的。

颇具代表性的两大事件是桑迪·胡克小学枪击案(2012)和波士顿马拉松爆炸案(2013)。

桑迪·胡克小学枪击案的罪魁祸首也许真的是一位罹患精神疾病的孤独症患者。然而他的手段如此残忍,不免会让某些人怀疑该事件会成为政府加强警力部署的借口。那些连这一阴谋存在的可能性都要否认的人,是否别有用心?

在波士顿马拉松爆炸案中,有重要证据显示,爆炸发生的顺序存在疑点。很明显,将整个案件强按在据说于偷枪时杀害了一名警官的车臣人身上,有些牵强附会。但不可否认的是,政府利用该案史无前例地在没有宪法保证、未经正当程序的情况下封锁了整个波士顿市。本案是一个可怕的先兆——七年后,美国又以控制疫情为由封锁了全国。

波士顿马拉松本是于每年的爱国者日(的确,案发那年的马拉松赛提早了几天举行)举办的纪念活动;这一天在波士顿的历史上甚为重要——美国军队正是于此日在莱克星顿打响了第一枪。然而媒体完全对它的非凡意义避而不谈,只顾披露两名罪犯的身世。

同时,也是在一个爱国者日——1993年4月19日,联邦政府对位于韦科的大卫教总部发动猛烈突袭,在不必要的情况下纵火,导致七十六人丧生。

还是在爱国者日——1995年4月19日,阿尔弗雷德· P. 穆拉联邦大楼毁于一场爆炸案,其主谋为蒂莫西·麦克维。该事件至今仍有许多疑点悬而未决。

此外,2013年波士顿马拉松爆炸案发生的两日之后,一场大规模爆炸惨案又在德克萨斯州的韦科附近上演(与在俄克拉荷马州的那场爆炸案一样,凶手使用了硝酸铵),导致十五人丧命。而这一事件,媒体并未报道。

于2017年10月1日发生的洛杉矶枪击案令可能隐藏在上述惨案背后的阴谋初现端倪。据称犯罪嫌疑人史蒂芬·克雷格·帕多克从曼德勒海湾酒店32层向下扫射,在不到十五分钟的时间内杀死了六十多人。许多专家针对官方发布的这则消息提出了质疑。

帕多克已饮弹自尽,因此他真正的所想所为,我们永无可能知晓。

更让人诧异的是,关于目击者的众多报道竟然存在互相矛盾之处。

尽管我们无法接触证人,但网络上仍存在这样的视频:有人在酒店某处进行实弹射击,在其他区域,枪声通过扬声器放送出来。

该事件(或许其他事件也一样)以这样的方式发布,可能是为了从一开始引发人们在案情解释方面的分歧。称枪击案真实存在的一方有证据来支持自己的论断,但认为枪击案是骗局的一方也并非口空无凭。

在气候变化问题上,情况也别无二致

已有科学证据表明,沙漠蔓延、海洋变暖及酸化、微塑料污染水资源及土壤、大气温度长期升高等灾难性环境问题的存在不容置疑。尽管接受企业献金的冒牌科学家们予以竭力否认,但公众并未上当。

对新冠疫情的炒作与气候变化直接相关。生态系统即将崩溃,他们需要牺牲地球上绝大多数人的利益来维护那0.5%的人的福祉,因此保证没有政治人物出面在揭穿新冠骗局的同时解决气候变化威胁成为了他们的当务之急。

媒体在各个基金会的资助下对气候变化大肆报道,其结果必然是提出让由比尔·盖茨及其伙伴控制的金融机构带头启动大型绿色项目,而比尔·盖茨等人必定会坚称新冠疫情确有其事。

保守派认为,气候变化是权贵阶层为压迫民众而打造的阴谋;他们也在非主流新闻中出示了证据,支持自己的观点。

然而进步派却认为,尽管气候变化铁证如山,但保守派要么“丧心病狂”,要么“愚蠢至极”。不论是瑞秋·麦道还是“少壮派” (The Young Turks)的森克·乌伊古尔,甚至社会主义活动家群体,他们全都抱此想法。

难道事情真的如此简单?

让我们回想一下2018年肆虐全球的森林大火,尤其是加利福尼亚的一场场山火。地球逐渐变暖、降雨减少、人们为满足商业化农业的需要不断从蓄水层抽水明显是世界森林火灾日益频发的主要原因。

然而,“加利福尼亚山火由人为导致或有人刻意助燃,其目的在于恐吓民众、逼迫他们接受大企业财团针对气候变化做出的举措”——难道只因为上述因素的存在,我们就可以认为保守派的这一观点荒谬可笑?

众议员玛乔丽·泰勒·格林曾指出,加州山火是由罗斯柴尔德家族的轨道激光引起的,是迫使加州政府批准高铁项目这一阴谋的一环,在自由媒体上掀起轩然大波。每一个人——真的,每一个人——都冲上去指责她是“疯子”,却没有考虑一下或许她道出了部分真相。

我仔细看过她发布的内容,也阅读过当时加州政治冲突的相关资料,并没有被她的这番话说服。然而,如果认为进步派攻击她是出于反犹太主义原因,气候变化活动家们斥责她是因为她无视科学,认为她的说法毫无根据,那么诸位就大错特错了。

让我们看一看BBC为“加利福尼亚山火:天堂遭焚的那一天”这篇报道配发的官方照片,特别是其中两张。

在第一张照片中,我们看到一片开发区已被夷为平地,而森林大火根本无法造成这样的破坏,尤其是在周围树木几乎未被烧到的情况下。

这张来自主流媒体源的照片很快招致了多方的严肃质疑。

第二张照片中,多辆汽车被山火引燃,从中汩汩流出的似乎是铝液。同样,森林大火的威力根本不足以融化钢铁或者铝。

在此我想根据奥卡姆剃刀原理针对上述现象提出更符合常理的解释。也许加利福尼亚愈发频繁的山火的确由气候变化所导致,但也有人在背后推波助澜,因此那些房屋要么是被低轨军事卫星摧毁的,要么只是以一种旨在暗示军事卫星发威的方式破坏的。第二张照片中的汽车也是如此:要么当时他们使用的武器足以融化金属,要么有人故意采用了令人生疑的图片。

这场阴谋的背后或许并非罗斯柴尔德家族要在加州开展的宏大战略,而是这样的意图:制造不同团体之间的严重分歧,阻碍人们达成广泛共识、对企业财团构成威胁,通过伪造气候变化假象来让人们怀疑气候变化的威胁是否真实存在。

“内战”——疫情应对之战

左翼与右翼媒体都在不遗余力地编造这样的故事:美国可能即将发生内战。国内种种冲突愈演愈烈,的确引人担忧。时有发生的警方与义务警员暴力事件似乎在令“血溅堪萨斯”重演的那一日愈来愈近。

我们还要问问自己,主流媒体紧抓此类话题不放,是否意味着其背后隐藏着更为险恶的、旨在将民众分而治之的计划。逼迫权威人士拿自己的名誉冒险、言不由衷地就新冠疫情大谈特谈,这一做法完全败坏了联邦政府、各个高等院校、主流媒体和专家的名声——它/他们原本是我们依赖的对象。针对整个体系发动的公然叛乱即将上演——为了这一天,某些人或许策划已久。

内战将撕裂体制,创造一个别样的环境,让超级富豪能够在其中为所欲为、推行更为激烈的体制性变革。一小撮亿万富翁和美国其他民众之间真正的阶级斗争将被不同媒体歪曲成“白人民族主义恐怖分子”与“支持‘黑命贵’的少数族裔”之间的争斗,以煽动情绪、掩人耳目。

上层中产阶级跟比尔·盖茨、埃隆·马斯克等超级富豪站在同一边——如果能使前者坚信这一点,后者的阴谋便更易得逞。

事实绝非如此。超级富豪已彻底垄断金融系统,积累起巨量财富;在他们眼中,哈佛大学的教授、参议院、房地产大鳄和流浪汉根本无甚差别。他们已经向其他所有人发起进攻——所谓“所有人”,不仅包括工人和移民,而且也将上层中产阶级包含在内。

尽管如此,让资产不足一亿美元的上层中产阶级与劳动者阶层离心离德,仍然是这一策略的重要一环。

但最近的经济现实让人无法回避。机场推行强制隔离政策,学校被迫关闭,哪怕上层中产阶级也要以令而行。这一切足以证明,各项政策是为少数人制定的,就连拥有几百万美元财产的家庭在决策者眼中都微不足道。

普林斯顿大学规定,学生必须于当年夏季接种疫苗,否则不可返校。这一事实足可表明财产与权力集中问题已经严重到何种极端程度。

大多数人认为,在常青藤精英大学就读的学生一定享有特权,根本不可能成为企业利益的牺牲品,无需接种危险的“疫苗”。倘若普林斯顿大学的学生都必须遵守强制疫苗令,那么印度、巴西、西班牙和日本的学生显然无法逃过一劫。

其实,在超级富豪看来,将子女送去普林斯顿大学读书的律师、医生、银行家和教授就如草芥一般。他们正在打赌,赌的是从实行新冠疫情应对政策到知识阶层最终掌握政治真相的这段时间是否足以让他们逼迫绝大多数人接种疫苗。

文明的崩溃

归根到底,在美国蔓延的种种乱象,其成因不能仅仅归为富人为保护经济利益所采取的举措。人们无需费力便可在网络上找到大量关于新冠疫情的科学证据,只要用心地看一看,便不得不承认,几百上千名科学家的证言无可辩驳。此外,不会有人迫使强制疫苗令的支持者同对现行整套抗疫措施痛下针砭的医学专家开展公开辩论。

美国的受教育阶层都心甘情愿地拒绝阅读相关科学资料、与彼此开展深刻讨论。

美国的律师、医生、高管和教授就跟《梦游者》(Die Schlafwandler)中的角色一样。该小说为赫尔曼·布洛赫所著,描写了德国的上层阶级在一战前文化秩序崩溃之时的生活。书中写道,德国受教育阶层的心理状态十分怪异:人们同梦游者别无二致,虽然在社会上各司其职、在工作中同彼此竞争,甚至不忘欣赏优美的音乐与艺术品,然而同时,他们又对系统性崩溃完全无视。这群有能力从事复杂工作的人对军国主义的蔓延、法治的终结以及由生产过剩导致的经济问题视而不见,让不可思议之事成为了可能。

这场危机的源头既不是腐败的政客与企业高管,也不是弊政和错误规划。

深埋于整套系统之下的文明正在衰落。受过教育、见多识广、有资格担任领袖之人受到蛊惑,不断自毁而毫无察觉。在我们眼前,大众陷入“蜂群崩溃综合症”的一幕徐徐展开:蜂巢中,大多数工蜂莫名其妙地踪影全无,只剩下蜂王、大量食物和少量保育蜂。

我们甚至无法掌握这场文化危机的全貌,因为我们就哲学、文学、美学和历史开展的探讨已经把政治和经济问题剔除在外。在来自企业的压力下,教育更加注重效率和实际,而我们因此而变得盲目无助,对暗中发生、无影无形的社会变化无可奈何。

保罗·利维认为,当今一种名为“wetiko”(美国土著语)的心理精神疾病令我们的社会深受其害;在这种疾病面前,心理医生开出的抗精神病药物有如万圣节糖果,根本无法发挥作用。它宿于我们的文化之中,像寄生虫一样以我们的灵魂为食。而且它是一种集体精神病,已经掌控了整个社会系统。

利维对罹患“wetiko”的人讲道:“你们目不可见,但对此无知无觉,而且还在想象自己耳聪目明,甚至相信自己比没有患病之人看得更加清楚。后来,你们对应该看到的东西视而不见,因为你们根本没有参照物可以比对。你们不知道自己正在不知不觉地与它狼狈为奸,因此也不知晓自己正在对他人,对世界施加负面甚至恶劣影响。”

他的话准确无比地描述了美国统治阶级的心理状态,而这群精神上的残疾人正在引导全体人类走向万劫不复的深渊。

Declaration of the Establishment of a Provisional Government for the United States

DECLARATION OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT

FOR

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

As grievous as was the blow, as terrible as is the suffering, as overwhelming and demoralizing as has been the ensuing chaos, and as discouraging as has been the spread of falsehoods, and the seduction of the educated, it is no surprise to the historian that a mighty nation like the United States could rapidly decline into moral depravity.

It is no mystery to the scholars of Babylon and Rome, of Byzantium and Athens, that great governments are brought to their knees, not by an external enemy, but rather by the substitution of superficial rituals for moral action, by a spiritual blindness that strikes down the best and the brightest.

This moral virus has infected the minds of those who should have known better, and the door was left ajar for the crafty and the cunning to surreptitiously sneak in and slip a collar around the eagle’s neck, rendering justice a pet for their idle amusement.

We have no time now for laments, standing here on the battlefield. The cruel powers have unleashed their dogs of war and they are ripping our institutions to shreds, tearing the living heart out of our government and our schools, and leaving behind our values and beliefs as rotted carcasses for the jackals to feed upon. These stealthy forces keep shifting their forms to confuse us, now conservative, now progressive, now black, now white.

What we know with certainty is that the current lull in the battle is the bait they have laid out for us. They are planning a final assault, as we stand here, dazed and confused. They want us to be absorbed in our selfish needs, stewed in the narcissism of the smartphone, lost in the cult of the self, and incapable of organizing our thoughts, or of mustering bravery, or of rising to the occasion.

Their weapons are different. Rather than a tank, they use a vaccine syringe for their first melee. They use AI and commercial media to reprogram our brains, rendering us docile beasts that chase after food, pornography and glittering images. We did not even notice how they made us dependent on them for food, for energy, for information, and now even for our very identity.   

Not a single column still stands in the temple of government that our founding fathers erected.

The beasts have carved the executive branch up into private fiefdoms, and leased them out to foreign banks. These days, those involved in governance are patted on the head and rewarded for tearing apart the edifice, for doing the bidding of the hidden masters.

The members of the Congress, regardless of their color or flavor, thrust their snouts deep in the public trough, where they devour the slop shoveled their way by the high priests of Mammon.

There are only two parties: the pimps and the whores.

The gangrene flowing through the veins of the judiciary is foul. It corrupts everything it touches, rendering judges and prosecutors unfeeling, incapable of, and unwilling to, uphold the Constitution, or to do anything that might displease their true masters.

Newspapers, magazines, universities and research institutes, corporations and foundations, are spigots that spew forth lies.

An evil spirit has possessed the public sector, rendering it a monstrosity. It slouches towards your neighborhood with a syringe in hand.

Declaration of an Provisional Government

for

The United States of America

In light of the collapse of all branches of the Federal government, and the slip of civil society into the dark abyss of decadence and narcissism, we citizens declare that an Provisional Government of the United States of America is established hereby that will serve as a midwife in the painful, but promising, rebirth of this nation.

The words of this declaration limn the direction forward for our nation and suggest the contours of our future.

The provisional government of the United States will distinguish itself from the wreckage now occupied by jackals and hyenas, by its strict adherence to our sacred Constitution and to the spirit of the law.

The provisional government will administer as much of the United States as it can, granted the tremendous challenges that we face.

The roots of our government are planted firmly in hearts of patriots, of citizens committed to liberty, justice and freedom. The provisional government will lay the foundations for an accountable government capable of addressing common concerns about the economy, society and security, hand in hand with those patriots. 

The United States has a noble tradition of democratic governance. The inspiration for our nation, however, must be traced back to the American Revolution of 1776, and to the revolution against slavery of 1860. Our political philosophy is revolutionary, and this is a moment when that tradition must be revived.  

The Declaration of Independence was the first step, a break with the British Empire. This declaration of independence is a break with the insidious empire of finance and speculation run by billionaires and their servants.


We hereby declare our independence from that empire of corruption and pillage, that empire of foreign wars and manipulative media, that empire of processed foods and needless medications forced on us for profit.


Our founding fathers declared, 

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”


We do not need any more media-savvy swiveling between the fraudulent flavors of “progressive” and “conservative,” the Pepsi and Coke of debased politics.

Before we recognize anyone as president, we must first take these six actions:  




1)

We will list the billionaires, investment banks, private equity funds and the other parasitic financial institutions that have taken control of our nation’s government and detail how they govern us illegally.

We will make all information public regarding their criminal takeover, and their criminal administration, of our country. We will bring criminal charges against the leaders, and seize their assets, regardless of how many politicians they own, or how many billions of dollars they claim to possess.


2)

We will take control of the economy, starting with money and finance (especially the Federal Reserve), and create an economy of the people, by the people and for the people.

The speculative economy will end and all fiscal policy will be drafted in close coordination with citizens using scientific data concerning the true short-term and long-term challenges facing our nation. For-profit organizations will play no role in the formulation of economic policy, nor will foreign economic concerns. Corporations whose stock is owned by foreign interests, that have their headquarters outside of the United States, will not be considered American.

3)

We will establish true journalism, starting with journalism produced by networks of patriotic citizens, that is dedicated to the pursuit of truth, and does not shy away from taboo subjects. This journalism will have no corporate sponsors and will be accompanied by social media networks and search engines that are run as regional and national cooperatives responsible to the people, that have pursuit of truth, not profit, as their paramount goal.


4)

We will establish an international committee of ethical citizens to oversee an investigation of the criminal actions by those pretending to be the United States government for the last twenty years. Base on the findings of those public investigations, we will make proposals for a revolutionary restructuring of the government so as to make the citizen again sovereign.

Only then will we be able to hold transparent and accountable elections for the President and the Congress that allow the citizens to vote on the basis of accurate information, elections from which corporate money and private wealth will be banned.

Criminal syndicates like the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, not described in the Constitution, will play no role in these open and fair elections.    

5)

We will set down national security priorities related to the threats facing our citizens. The process of assessing those security concerns will be immune from the lobbying of weapons manufactures and investment banks. We will consider crucial issues such as the collapse of biodiversity, the destruction of our climate, the concentration of wealth and the misuse of technology to destroy the minds of our citizens. We will also stop the use of automation and communications technology by corporations to destroy our livelihoods. We see the war of the rich against the citizens of the Earth as the primary security threat of our age.

6)

We will reform the United Nations so that it will become a space for true “Earth” governance that takes an internationalist perspective, and is not a tool for globalism. We will banish from the United Nations the money chargers and the plutocracy who have shredded the United Nations Charter and made its employees into their lapdogs.


 
The demands are simple, but achieving them will require vision, inspiration, tenacity and sacrifice. The rebuilding of the United States, in accord with its sacred Constitution, will be both a national and an international project.

We call out to all Americans, to all patriots who can hear our voices, and especially to those who were lucky enough to receive outstanding educations, privileged enough to obtain specialized training in the sciences, in international relations, in economics and in medicine. It must be you! Lawyers, doctors, professors, technicians, government officials, corporate executives and business owners! This is your moment of truth.

This is the moment when you must choose to stand with the downtrodden, choose to help citizens, who have not been so fortunate as you have, to distinguish truth from falsehood.

Those who possess extreme riches are not your friends. They care no more for you than they do for the homeless.

We declare today that in our streets, in our neighborhoods, in our states and in our nation, the United States of America, the super-rich and their minions shall have no dominion. The government titles or institutional trappings that they have stolen, or bought, grant them no authority over us.

If truth slips from our grasp, the powerful can easily twist our sentiments. The evil that they stir up shifts patterns, so as to blend into any scene, like a moth, like a chameleon. 

Our provisional government will adhere to the constitution, to the sacred truth and to our moral indignation. We know no other masters.

The Big Lie Strategy in America of the Super-Rich

Emanuel Pastreich

May 4, 2021

The massive concentration of wealth over the last few years has made it possible for a tiny handful of individuals to control the means of extraction, production, and distribution, the sales of food and products, and the value of money. They are free to demand at will the statements they need to justify totalitarian rule, customized to the tastes of specific communities, from their pet experts at Harvard University, at the World Health Organization, at the New York Times or Counterpunch, at the National Review or the World Socialist Web Page, and in government of the United States, and of most other countries.   

The rate at which wealth has been concentrated is unprecedented in human history, in part because of the exponential evolution of technology that permits a global manipulation of currency and other financial products in a complex manner beyond the capacity of most to comprehend.

New AI technology allows for the promotion of false information globally through the commercial media in a confusing manner. The super-rich use this confusion to divide and to confuse the citizens of the United States, and of the world, presenting contradictory opinions through the authority figures that they promote, often opinions that lack any scientific basis.  

Understanding why so many highly-educated Americans are incapable of responding to the current crisis, and endorse a vaccine regime that they do not believe in, requires us to look at the larger strategy for manipulating choices offered to establishment intellectuals. In part, it is a matter of lag time. Intellectuals are shocked by the rapid shifts in geopolitics. They find it easier to wallow in self-pity, or to bury their heads in denial. The period of time required for a new generation of committed intellectuals to emerge is not fast enough to keep up with the rate of change—and thus have failed to organize anti-fascist movements like those of the 1930s that formed the kernel of true resistance to totalitarianism.

It is helpful to focus on a few of the false choices, the baited gambits, that have been skillfully set up by the advisors to the super-rich so as to create fissures in American society that fragment the establishment, and create internal conflicts in a predetermined manner, so that no broad consensus is reached and citizens unknowingly do the dirty work for the super-rich.

Let us consider the central baited gambits being utilized today.   

1

The New Cold War

The commercial media is pumping out a uniform story about a New Cold War between the United States and China that has been reformatted in different political flavors for distribution on hundreds of media platforms. There are conservative and progressive flavors to this story about unprecedented tensions between China and the United States born of Chinese expansionism.

Not everything about Chinese actions in Xinjiang, or in Hong Kong, is false, but for the most part the tale is so grotesquely distorted that we might as well file it under fiction in our library.

I have not found any serious discussions about how this New Cold War is being promoted by media interests whose stock is owned by the same concerns who want to make a fortune from the massive increase in the US military budget that resulted from the Defense Appropriations Bill of 2020. Nor does anyone mention the process by which multinational banks and corporate interests have encouraged national conflicts over territory and ethnic identity so as to push for militarization in the years before the First World War, or how that cynical ploy was related to overcapacity and overproduction and how the alchemy of wartime demand was used to make liability into a godsend. French, British and German banks were happy to play footsie in that tragicomedy and the hidden profiteering continued even after the war began.

It would not take more than a few minutes of comparison between the tricks used by global finance leaders in London, Paris and Berlin in 1914, and the similar tricks being employed by US and Chinese financial interests today, for citizens to get the idea.

In place of analysis, we are force-fed the tired and trite tale of the “Thucydides trap” endlessly promoted by the highest-paid minion of the investment bankers, the made-to-order prophet lauded and feted by CEOs in New York and Shanghai, Harvard’s own éminence grise Graham Ellison.

If we want to understand what is taking place in the unhealthy “Frankenstein Alliance,” in the death pact signed between elites in Washington and Beijing, we must first break out of this foolish “nation state” schemata peddled to intellectuals by global bankers and look directly at the massive collaboration between the super-rich globally for the purpose of destroying the lives of workers, and unfold and unravel their schemes to play American workers against Chinese workers so as to stop any unity of purpose on the part of citizens.

Graham Ellison and his Harvard friends are never going to talk about how Harvard’s de facto majority shareholder Goldman Sachs plans to use economic conflict between the United States and China as a means to push through the complete automation of factories and the massive implementation of AI in both countries in the name of “competition.”

The battle is not so much between Beijing and Washington, although that battle is also plenty real, but more about the drive of global finance to control the assets, the money, the activities, the identity, and the bodies of every single worker in both countries. What cannot be forced through in China, will be forced through in the United States first, or vise versa—or in another country first.

Maybe Elon Musk and Jack Ma are not voices of reason crying out against a nationalistic narrow-minded national agenda in the United States and China, but partners in a scheme to monopolize the resources and the assets of the entire world.

That process, even though it can be documented without too much effort using open-source materials, must be dismissed as a conspiracy theory beyond the pale. The only accurate means to understand the conflicts between China and the United States today, we are told by the authorities, is through an analogy to a war between Sparta and Athens in the fifth century B.C.

The possibility that neither China nor America exist today as political units in light of the radical concentration of wealth is the most likely explanation for what we witness today. You will not read that analysis anywhere.  

What are the immediate results of the increase in defense spending for this “New Cold War?”

The opportunity to increase massively defense spending in the United States, China, and throughout East Asia—and now throughout the world–has the banks drooling. Many financial interests stand to benefit from all that spending, that artificially created demand. Citizens are force-fed cold war fiction without a word about who makes the money from weapon systems globally—including in China.

The spending, in the US Department of Defense, or the intelligence community, is no longer aimed at training people in Chinese, or developing a new generation of people who understand the politics and cultures of the nations of Asia. Increasingly, those who studied in China (to learn Chinese) cannot get the security clearances required to work in government.

Most of that money is tagged for ridiculously overpriced fighter planes, tanks, anti-missile systems, and satellites that, in many cases, already have been shown to be ineffective, or useless.

Those at the working-level in the military and intelligence are still trying to do their jobs in spite of the increasingly absurd orders that they receive. To some degree they can convince themselves that the reports of threats from Chinese AI, drones and robots are credible. Certainly the round-the-clock work schedule that is forced on them (similar to what was done before the Iraq invasion) makes it nearly impossible to concentrate.

What no one is going to tell citizens, or even personnel with top secret/SCI clearance, is that the AI being developed is meant to be a weapon to degrade the ability of citizens to think (starting with military personnel) through destructive stimulation of the brain using commercial media, and to divide and confuse the populations of both nations, using different time frames and agendas, so as to soften up the citizens of the Earth for the absolute rule of the super-rich.

Will the next generation micro drones and robots, energy weapons on low-orbit satellites, be used in some glorious Normandy Landing, or Athens-Sparta conflict between civilizations and nation states? Or might the final intention be to employ these weapons so as to attack the citizens of China and of the United States, if they try to resist this global power grab?

The war has already been declared. Both China and the United States, and many other countries, have become the battle ground in the drive to completely corrupt science, and to make all sources of information spigots for propaganda in support of bio-fascist regimes like COVID19.

Whether in Dallas or Wuhan, Osaka or Dresden, AI logarithms are being used now to shut down civil society, and stacks of drones and robots that can attack whoever they are programmed to attack, are waiting in the wings.

It is worth noting that the New York Times have taken a sudden interest in police violence over the last year after completely ignoring the issue for decades. Moreover, they are not interested in systemic corruption, but rather in gaudy incidents which are played up in the news cycle just long enough to create a consensus for a policy shift.

Perhaps the goal is not to reduce police violence, but rather to undermine public confidence in police officers as a means of defunding the human police. But, is the intention of such a move to create a more human police force with closer ties to the community? Or might this rather be the first stage in softening up the public to accept the replacement of human police with drones and robots that may have smiles on their faces but are capable of a ruthlessness beyond any human?

Your choice: Climate Change or COVID19?

Multinational investment banks, corporations, and the super-rich that control them, have paid their operators to set up a false choices for citizens that are meant to divide us and to discourage organized resistance. Prefabricated liberal-conservative conflicts are core to this effort. Although this effort has gone on for decades, the classified programs to engineer conflicts based on ethnicity, culture or gender, has gone into warp drive as the blatant power grab of the elite becomes increasingly obvious.

Central among the baited gambits offered up is the false choice between addressing climate change and acknowledging that COVID19 is a massive fraud. Anyone who tries to take on both issues at once will find that he or she cannot get anything published anywhere. Everyone is given a choice or choosing one, or the other, or disappearing from public discourse altogether. For the ego-driven “public intellectuals” so accustomed to seeing their precious names in print, the compromise is of little significance.  

You can either recognize that the climate is adversely impacted by emissions, the destruction of the ecosystem and by an economy driven by a dangerous model of “growth” and “consumption” or you can argue that COVID19 has no scientific basis and that the forced-vaccine regime is an attempt by rich and powerful to take control of our bodies and to deny us the right to work, to go to school, or to seek medical treatment for random reasons.

One the one side, we see progressive-flavored intellectuals like Noam Chomsky or Chris Hedges talking about the danger of fossil fossil fuels and the ignorance of science displayed by Republicans in the pay of the oil companies. Some parts of their arguments are true. Other are tailored to the needs of investment banks. For example, they are happy to push for solar power and wind power, but they do not mention that these renewable energy projects are planned and pushed through by corporate banks. Nor do these intellectuals describe how citizens produced their own renewable energy before John Rockefeller forced them to become dependent on big oil.

These progressives also leave Bill Gates book “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster” alone, preferring to give the Gates Foundation all the slack it needs to use the “climate crisis” to tighten political and ideological control.

In the other corner we find those, often associated with Donald Trump or Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who stand united in their condemnation of the COVID19 “plandemic,” the mask mandate and the vaccine regime. These forces have developed increasingly sophisticated media sources and they support their critiques with substantial scientific data. For the most part, these groups are dismissed out of hand by the Nation or Greenpeace as extremists, or anti-science, when they speak the truth.  

As good as the science for these groups may be regarding COVID19 (and it is not always accurate) they are silent on, or even dismissive of, the threats of climate change, the collapse of biodiversity, the destruction of the environment by fracking and micro-plastics. They are willing to stand up to Bill Gates and George Soros, but get wobbly knees when it comes to BP and Exxon.   

Another part of this scheme to drive a stake through science in the United States establishment is the engineered split in interpretive communities concerning the 9.11 incident: a powerful shibboleth in American politics. This obvious fraud, which defies the principles taught in high school physics, is a taboo for the progressive groups standing up in self-righteous indignation over climate change, social injustice and systemic racism.

9.11 is not taboo, however, for conservative groups posting at QAnon or the X22 Report. But there is a catch. Many of the scientific discussions of 9/11, or of COVID19, are narrated with reference to Christian philosophy concerning the nature of evil, and are supported with references to the Book of Revelations. Although such references may be valid, they inherently limit the appeal of these reports for the public.

These postings tend to focus on figures like George Soros or Hillary Clinton who are tied to the “leftists” in a simplistic manner. The critiques in these reports lack a systematic analysis of the interlocking financial interests around the world that were behind that incident. These conservative news sources lack the systematic analysis of who owns what found in books like Giants: The Global Power Elite (Peter Phillips).

The focus on the trafficking of youth for pedophiles by high-ranking political figures (such as Bill Clinton and Barack Obama) and their alleged participation in Satanic practices, also limits the impact of these conservative reports. There is plenty of evidence of pedophilia among power players in Washington D.C., and there exists documentation that such incidents have been purposely set up to collect damaging information about politicians. But this political practice is but one of a variety of methods for buying and intimating, and not as central as these reports suggest.

It is possible that high ranking politicians engaged in Satanic rituals as well, but from what I have seen of the exercise of power in Washington D.C. its seems rather unlikely that Satanic practices are that prominent. I suspect that although there may be some truth to those claims, that stressing Satanism is a condition for getting the word out because it limits the audience. Perhaps secret law not only blocks reporting on COVID19 in the mainstream media, but also requires that those who are allowed to report on the topic introduce a heavy dose of Christian ideology that cuts down on circulation among progressive groups.

The Conspiracy Theory trap

The creation of events that will promoted irreconcilable interpretations in different interpretive communities has become a cottage industry for the rich and powerful. The radically divergent tales concerning massing shootings and attacks on minorities does wonders to exacerbate rifts between groups in the United States who might otherwise find common ground. These deep fissures in the basic assumptions about events render cooperation between these groups impossible.  

Two common themes among conservatives are that attacks on minorities, and major mass shootings, are fake, false flag operations, and that climate change is a fraud used for the interests of the rich and powerful.  

Let me start with a disclaimer. As no open, international investigations have ever been conducted concerning the incidents that I describe, my interpretation is by nature speculative. I would venture, however, that the critical points that I make, purposely are left out of coverage in both the mainstream media and in conspiracy blogs.

What is clear is that public intellectuals and reporters intentionally avoid difficult questions concerning these incidents, falling back on the argument that it is disrespectful of the families of those who were killed to suggest that the event was fabricated.

Two central cases are the Sandy Hook Elementary School (2012) shooting and the Boston Marathon Bombing (2013).

In the case of Sandy Hook, it is certainly possible that the attack was by a loner suffering from mental illness. Yet the vicious manner in which the mere suggestion that there might have been an incentive to create an event so as to increase police powers raises questions as to the motivations of those who deny even the possibility of a conspiracy.

In the case of the Boston Marathon Bombing, significant evidence exists that chronology of the bombing is inconsistent. The remarkably clean manner in which the entire event was pinned on Chechens who supposedly killed a police officer while trying to steal his gun sounds rather far-fetched. It is undeniable, however, that the Boston Marathon bombing was used to carry out an unprecedented lockdown of the entire city of Boston without any constitutional guarantees for citizens, or due process. That event was a frightening adumberation of the lockdowns of the United States in the name of COVID19 seven years later.

The significance of the Boston Marathon as commemoration of Patriot’s Day (granted it was held a few days earlier that year), a critical day in Boston history when American militia opened fire on the British at Lexington, was completely ignored by the media when they pinned the story on two terrorist bombers.

Yet, it was on Patriot’s Day, April 19, 1993 that the Federal government brutally crushed the Branch Davidians at Waco, an assault that included a needless fire which left dead seventy-six people.

It was on Patriot’s Day, April 19, 1995, that the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building was destroyed in an attack attributed to Timothy McVeigh—an incident about which many questions still remain unanswered.

In addition, two days after the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, a massive explosion (employing ammonium nitrate just like the explosion in Oklahoma) near Waco, Texas, killed fifteen people. None of these facts were mentioned in the media.

The Los Vegas shootings (October 1, 2017) suggest a possible strategy behind these attacks. The suspect Stephen Craig Paddock supposedly killed more than 60 people in less than 15 minutes of shooting from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel. This fact alone raised serious questions among experts.

As he committed suicide we never learned Paddock’s version of the story.

The striking part of the story is the contradictory reports from eyewitnesses.

Although they have vanished from the internet, there were videos posted of both real shootings with live ammunition in one part of the hotel and in other areas the sounds of gunfire were broadcast over a speaker.

The intension of such an approach (which may well have been used in other incidents) might well have been to create divergent interpretations of the event from the start. Those who argued that there was a real shooting had facts to back up their claims. Those who suggested that the shootings were a fraud, a false flag, were given also solid evidence.

A similar game appears to be under way concerning climate change.

Scientific evidence for catastrophic climate change in terms of spreading deserts, the warming and the acidification of oceans, the spread of micro-plastics through the water and soil, and the long-term warming of the atmosphere is indisputable. The campaigns of fake scientists receiving corporate funding to dismiss this complex phenomenon has not succeeded in convincing the public.

Because the launch of the COVID19 operation is directly linked to climate change, specifically to the need to assure the wellbeing of the 0.5% at the expense of the rest of the Earth, in light of the impending collapse of the ecological system, the highest priority is to make sure that no political figure emerges who addresses both COVID19 fraud and the threat of climate change.

Climate change advocates covered by the media, and funded by foundations, must argue for big green projects led by financial institutions that Bill Gates and friends can control, and they must back the COVID 19 myth.

The conservatives claim that climate change is a conspiracy cooked up the rich and powerful to oppress us and they present evidence in alternative news to support their perspective.

The assumption among the progressives, however, is that granted the scientific evidence for climate change, the conservatives must be “crazy” or “stupid.” Whether it is Rachel Maddow or Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks, or even socialist activists, the assumption is the same.    

But might there be a more complex game at play?

Let us consider the case of the forest fires that swept the Earth in 2018, specifically the California wildfires. The gradual warming of the Earth, the reduction in rainfall, and the siphoning of water from aquafers for use in commercial agriculture is clearly the cause of the increase in forest fires globally.    

But can we be certain that the argument made by conservatives that the California wildfires were started by arson, or enhanced thereby, with the purpose of frightening citizens into adopting a response to climate change commandeered by corporate power is ludicrous?

When Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed that the wildfires were started by lasers in orbit owned by the Rothchilds as part of a conspiracy to get a high-speed rail project approved by the state of California, she set off a firestorm in the liberal media. Everyone, literally everyone, rushed out to attack her as a “nut” without considering for a moment that perhaps some part of her story might be accurate.

I have read her claims carefully, and I have read related materials concerning the political conflicts in California at the time, and I do not find her argument convincing. It would be a mistake, however, to assume that because progressive causes attack her for anti-Semitism, and climate change advocates attack her for her ignorance of science, that her claims are unfounded.

Let us take a look at the official photos selected by the BBC for the report “California wildfires: The day Paradise burned down.”

Specifically consider the following two photos.

In the first photo, we see that the houses in a development have been cleared down to the foundations in a manner that would be absolutely impossible in a forest fire, while the trees nearby stand virtually untouched.

This photograph, from a mainstream media source, presents information that immediately raises serious questions.

The second photographs indicates what appears to be melted aluminum that flowed from the automobiles burned in the forest fire. It is similarly improbable that a forest fire would burn at a temperature sufficient to melt steel or aluminum.

Following the basic principle of Occam’s razor, I would like to propose a more probable explanation for what happened. Perhaps the California wildfires, which are slowly increasing due to climate change, were purposely enhanced by artificial means, and in this case the houses were destroyed either by a strike from low-orbit military satellites, or were simply demolished in manner so as to suggest that such an attack had happened. Similarly, weapons were employed that were hot enough to melt metal, or perhaps this photograph was simply inserted in the article so as to suggest such an interpretation.

The real conspiracy might not be the Rothchild family’s ambitions in California, but rather the creation of an event that will be read in a radically divergent manner by different interpretive communities, so as to inhibit the formation of a broad consensus on the danger of corporate power and to discredit the real threat of climate change by creating real examples of falsified climate disaster.

Operation Civil War

The media of the left and of the right are cranking out stories about a possible civil war in the United States like there is no tomorrow. There are real reasons for fearing that such a domestic conflict may be in the offing. Already the low-intensity killings involving police and other vigilante groups are approaching the level of “Bleeding Kansas” in scale.

We must also ask ourselves whether the fascination of the mainsteam media with this theme suggests a more devious plan to divide and conquer. Forcing authority figures to put their reputations on the line pushing a COVID19 narrative that they do not buy has completely discredited the Federal Government, universities, the mainstream media and all the experts we rely on. The stage is set for open defiance of the entire system—which was perhaps the plan all along.

Civil war would serve to tear institutions apart and create an environment in which the super-rich, unimpeded, can push through even more radical institutional change. The actual class war between a handful of multibillionaires and the rest of the country would be hidden behind orchestrated fighting between “white nationalist terrorists” and “black lives matters” minorities that would be narrated in different media so as to stoke emotions, and to blind people to the real agenda.

This work is rendered easier by of the mistaken assumption of the upper middle class that they are on the same side as the super-rich, that Bill Gates or Elon Musk are just like them, only more successful.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The super-rich have so completely monopolized the financial system, and amassed such wealth, that for them the difference between a Harvard Professor, a US senator, a successful real estate mogul and a homeless man is insignificant. They have launched against the rest of humanity that targets not only workers and immigrants, but the entire upper middle class as well.

It is critical for the strategy, however, that the upper-middle class, all those with measly assets under one brick (100 million dollars) be convinced that they are on the side of the super-rich, and not on the side of the working class.

The new economic reality, however, is clear. The forced quarantine at airports, the forced lockdowns of schools, even in upper-middle class neighborhoods, makes it clear that policy is made for a handful of people and that even families with millions of dollars of assets are not significant for the planners.

The decision of Princeton University to require COVID19 vaccines of all students over the summer, or be denied registration, indicates just how extreme the concentration of wealth and power has become.

Most people assume that the students at elite Ivy League colleges are so privileged that they could not possibly be sacrificed for corporate profits through the use of dangerous “vaccine.” If Princeton students must to take the vaccine, obviously students in India, Brazil, Spain and Japan will have to too.

As far as the super-rich are concerned, however, the lawyers, doctors, bankers and professors who send their children to Princeton are no consequence. They are betting that the lag time between the start of this COVID19 operation and the point when educated people finally grasp the new political reality will be sufficient to vaccinate the vast majority of humanity.

The Collapse of civilization

Ultimately, the contagion of massive fictions in the United States cannot be explained simply in terms of the economic interests of the rich. Much of the scientific evidence about COVID19 is accessible on the internet with a bit of effort and anyone who reads it with care will be forced to admit that the testimony of hundreds of scientists is convincing. Moreover, advocates for mandatory vaccines are never forced to enter into public debates with the medical experts who criticize the entire COVID19 regime.

Educated Americans willingly refuse to read these scientific materials, or to engage in a thoughtful discussions with their peers.    

American lawyers and doctors, executives and professors resemble the characters in “The Sleepwalkers” (Die Schlafwandler), an novel by the Austrian writer Hermann Broch that describes the lives of the ruling class of Germany caught up in the collapsing cultural order before the First World War. Broch’s novel describes the bizarre psychological state of the educated classes of Germany. People lived like sleepwalkers; functional in society, competent at their jobs, even capable of appreciating fine music and art. Yet those same intellectuals were in the most profound sense blind, completely oblivious to the signs of systemic collapse. Because they could perform sophisticated jobs while remaining oblivious to the spread of militarism, the end of the rule of law and the demands on the economy made by overproduction, they made the unthinkable possible.

The Origin of this crisis is not corrupt politicians and CEOs, or bad policies and poor planning.

Deep down the entire system, the civilization, is decaying. The educated and informed who could be leaders are left confused, engaged in self-destructive acts as a result. We see unfolding the human version of colony collapse disorder, when the majority of worker bees in a honey bee hive inexplicably disappear, leaving behind the queen, plenty of food, and a few nurse bees. 

We cannot even start to get a handle on this civilizational crisis because our discussions of politics and economics have been stripped of all discussion of philosophy and literature, aesthetics and history. The push for the efficient and practical forced on education by corporations has left us blind and helpless, unable to grasp the invisible shifts taking place at a subterranean level within society.

Paul Levy argues that our current society is wracked by the psycho-spiritual disease “wetiko” (the native American term) which is impervious to the anti-psychotics dished out by therapists like candy at Halloween. Wekiko is a disease in our civilization that feeds like a parasite on the spirit, a collective psychosis that has seized control of the entire system of things.

Levy notes that for those captured by wekiko, “You’re blind and you do not know you are blind, and in fact imagine that you can see clearly. You come to believe that you can see more clearly than those who are clear-sighted. You then become unaware of what it is to be sighted, as you have no reference point for comparison. You do not see how you are unwittingly colluding with wetiko’s pernicious effects and thereby you are unaware of how you are having negative or ill effects upon others and the world.”

Such words describe perfectly the vast majority of the ruling class in the United States who, now spiritually crippled, are leading the entire population of the Earth to the edge of the cliff.

Tenth anniversary of Circles and Squares

May, 2021

It has been exactly ten years since I launched this blog “Circles and Squares” soon after arriving in Seoul from Daejeon to start teaching at Kyung Hee University.

It became my primary means of communicating with the world, especially after I cultivated a significant following on Facebook.

The dialog on Circles and Squares shifted a bit over the last two years. The degradation of Facebook eventually reached the point where I decided to quit entirely. Moreover, after I lauched my campaign for president in 2020, I was compelled to work on my speeches and other written materials related to the campaign.

At the same time that speeches for the campaign become increasingly important, Korea Times indicated that they were censoring my writing in an unprecedented manner. Circles and Squares, and the Korean media, became a far less important part of my writing.

That said, much of my best work started at Circlesandsquares.asia and I continue to post here, granted it is no longer my only format.
