My Proposal to the Citizens of the United States of America

My Proposal to the Citizens of the United States of America

My Proposal to the Citizens of the United States of America at this dangerous moment

Emanuel Pastreich

As the only candidate in the presidential election who addressed the criminal conspiracies of 9.11, of the theft of trillions of dollars from the Federal Reserve in 2020, and the COVID19 bogus pandemic, the only one who refused all funding from the rich and powerful and who worked with ordinary Americans for the common good, for truth and morality, I feel that I am best positioned to serve as president of a provisional government of the United States of America, only until such time as the rule of law is restored and we can govern the nation in accord with the Constitution.

I propose only that I can serve as an acting president for the moment as we collect together the best and the brightest to set out, and act upon, a plan to rebuild the United States spiritually and intellectually and to restore the republic and discard the empire of finance and entertainment, of war and extraction, that we have been drawn into.

My loyalty is to the Constitution of the United States exclusively. I have no interest in the worship of personalities, whether it be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Donald Trump, Noam Chomsky or Glenn Beck. Although all of them occasionally speak the truth, they have all been reduced to puppets in the show over the last year.

I welcome you, I welcome everyone with a clear mind and a decent heart, to join me.

I solemnly warn those with ill intentions, those who work secretly for the super-rich, that we will not tolerate your games any more.

If no one else steps forth to take this position of leadership, I will have no choice, out of my love for our Constitution and for our republic, but to chart out a path forward towards freedom, liberty, sustainability and survival in this most hellish moment of human history.

My record is clear for all to see. For the last twenty years of the battle against totalitarianism, I have adhered to the principles of Cincinnatus. Like Cincinnatus, I have always been ready to return to my humble position as educator when a crisis has passed. I have a proven record of willingness to forgo all power and authority and to pursue the common interest even at great personal sacrifice.

For all intents and purposes, the “provisional government,” is effective immediately.

I promise, in accord with the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, to serve only temporarily as president of the United States of America in this crisis, not as a usurper, or as an imposter or a pretender, but rather in the sense that Cincinnatus rose up to play a role in governance during a crisis in ancient Rome. Cincinnatus made it clear he had no greater ambitions and he quietly retired to his farm when his role was completed.  

I will have the humility and the flexibility, to accept suggestions from all corners and to refuse to have anything to do with the corrupt media, the corrupt political parties or the super-rich who believe that they rule the Earth.

In the following days, we will put forth a series of emergency orders to re-establish the efficacy of the Constitution and the rule of law in the United States. 

We will also, with your help, put for forth a plan for a true reform of the United Nations as well that will make it a fit vessel for ethical governance for the Earth that is not influenced by corporations, investment banks, or the rich who lurk behind them.

I have the authority to take these steps only in that I am granted that authority by the citizens of the United States in accord with the Constitution. If I am granted that authority, just for the duration of this crisis, just for the period of time required to establish a functional and constitutional government, then that authority that I will hold will be far greater than any authority granted by commercial journalism that prays before the false gods of finance, granted by the politicians that are fed like lap logs by their rich masters, or granted by the hyenas and jackals that run contracting companies for defense, security and manufacturing and roam the dismal wasteland surrounding the Capitol.

Thank you for listening to me. I will go forward, with your support, to follow the Constitution and to protect the true interests of our citizens, not multinational investment banks and the rich who control them. I will do so to the best of my ability, so help me God.

Why do we need a provisional government for the United States of America?

An unavoidable response to the current crisis of governance

Emanuel Pastreich

The mainstream media in the United States is now controlled by the super-rich through a web of holding companies and privatize intelligence firms dedicated to domestic propaganda. The news, once meant to inform citizens in accord with the Constitution, now keeps repeating, hypnotically, that America is returning to normal under the Biden administration. Yet, it is clear to the most casual observer that hidden forces are implementing an unprecedented totalitarian governance at all levels in the United States, and globally.

Before the opinions of presidents and Harvard professors, before the insights of intelligence and military experts, before the comments of billionaires and technology kings, the authority of the first amendment of the Constitution is paramount.

“Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Congress has passed laws, and passed secret laws, that abridge freedom of speech, crush freedom of the press, prohibit peaceful assembly, and that end the right to petition the government. The executive and the judicial have conspired to enact, and to maintain, criminal administrative structures. More importantly, the rich and powerful are planning to enact even more repressive criminal administrative structures in the near future.

The Atlantic Council released a chilling report entitled “Domestic violent extremism and the intelligence challenge” that describes the January “storming of the Capitol Building” by clowns and buffoons as a “failure of intelligence” and demands the creation of a Domestic Violent Extremism Unit (DVEAU) under the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) that reports to the Director of National Intelligence.

The author, Mitchell D. Silber, offers us terrifying new terms like “domestic violent extremism” (DVE) and “racial or ethnically motivated violence” (REMV) that will be used this year not only to justify juicy budgets but also to permit the oppression of all domestic opposition by intelligence agencies that are by their nature opaque, unaccountable and free to do as they please without any disclosure to local police or to the judiciary.

 

American citizens will be designated as terrorists by a shadow government that hears only its master’s voice. Those secret powers can toy with us for sport as wanton boys would do with flies.

 

No! We cannot wait any longer. We cannot complain over coffee, or organize desultory protests on weekends when the gaudy false gods permit us.

 

No! We must establish our own legitimate provisional government granted authority by the Constitution to administer the United States until such time as the Constitution is restored, and the rich and powerful are put in their place.

 

The government has collapsed into such anomy that we have no choice but question the legal authority of those who pretend to be a government and to propose a constitutional and moral alternative.

 

As Thomas Jefferson declared, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

 

What do we do now?

The Founding Fathers describe clearly what our response should be to such a crisis in the Declaration of Independence.

That Declaration of Independence, in turn, is the foundation on which the Constitution stands, and the Constitution, in turn, forms the skeleton that supports all legitimate governance in the United States of America.

If the government operates outside of the Constitution, it is not the government any more, but rather a criminal enterprise masquerading as a government. This critical distinction must inform our every step from this day forward.

The Declaration of Independence is unambiguous:

“When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce the citizens under absolute Despotism, it is the citizens’ right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

We face today precisely such an “absolute despotism” and we must take action in a coordinated manner to establish a functional government, to “provide new guards” for our children and our grandchildren.

The shadow government that makes the real decisions, long before those politicians are dispatched to appear on television, is trying, right now, to lull us to sleep, to convince us that everything is returning to normal, so that they can launch their final campaign for the complete subjection of all Americans and, with us, all the citizens of the Earth.

That shadow government, that “absolute despotism” of the super-rich, baffles us with a confusing tapestry of arguments about policy, cynically induces emotional responses in us to the personalities of politicians, and to images associated with political parties.

There is no search for truth and there is no commitment to moral governance anywhere in this wasteland.

These cynical operators are following carefully scientific studies on mental manipulation, on the rape of the mind, and on techniques for mass hypnosis conducted in secret by government and by corporations over the last sixty years. They create an imbricated web of arguments and images, but they have one unifying purpose: To distract and to confuse the citizens of our Republic so that few can grasp this unconstitutional seizure of power until it is too late.

They repeat the same hypnotic messages to prepare us for tyranny. They sweeten the bitter medicine with flavors, conservative or progressive, libertarian or Christian, depending on the audience.

We are not in denial. We will not play these cynical political games. We will not abuse the trust of the public in authoritative institutions as a means to trick them into actions aimed at their enslavement, at their mental and physical destruction.

We have no higher masters than the scientific search for truth and the moral imperative for transparent and ethical government as described in our sacred Constitution.

Elections in the United States were problematic from the start. Those elections have been deeply compromised for the last twenty years and they are now irrevocably broken now. Not only is the counting of votes manipulated, and citizens regularly denied the right to vote, citizens are denied also access to accurate information concerning issues, policies and politicians by the gangrenous media. 

As a result, the government has been reduced to an appendage of the rich and powerful. It no longer represents us, or assists us, in our struggle to guarantee a transparent and accountable political process that attends to the needs of citizens.

They have burned the Constitution and they have buried the entire administrative process of the executive, the legislative and the judiciary in a shallow grave.

Before we talk about how we will govern the United States from this day forward, let us first address the status of the best-known candidates for President Mr. Joseph Biden and Mr. Donald Trump.

Mr. Biden and Mr. Trump are two men caught up in a collapsing system of governance, in a decadent and narcissistic political culture. Many of the actions that they take, they take because they feel they are compelled to do so by greater powers.

We have no desire to blame them. We respect what they attempted and we recognize the hardships that they have suffered.

Mr. Biden is a prisoner in the Oval Office. He does not play a role in governance. Powerful multinational corporations, and the rich who hide behind them, dictate to him what his policies will be. He is trotted out before the camera like a show pony, a lame show pony.

Mr. Biden is a tired, sad old man.

Nevertheless, he has some responsibility for the rape of the Constitution and the pillage of government taking place today. He was aware of the corruption and the criminality in the last election and he chose to go along with the program in silence.

He must resign, along with his entire administration. There is no other choice at this point.

Mr. Trump has good reasons to claim that the presidential election was fixed. The protests by his supporters concerning the vote count in Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Pennsylvania deserve to be taken seriously. The dismissal of his arguments by the corporate media was dishonest.

Those facts, however, do not make Mr. Trump the legitimate president of the United States of America.

Mr. Trump accepted the support of the criminal syndicate known as the Republican Party, and the super-rich who hide behind it. He was unable, or unwilling, to back away from the vaccine regime, the drive for militarism, and the take-over of governance by multinational corporations working through their agents. He accepted an election that excluded all qualified candidates through illegal means and that banned meaningful journalism. There is evidence that the Republican Party, like the Democratic Party, also took illegal actions to restrict the vote. 

We recognize that Mr. Trump took a brave stand on several occasions during his term of office, but he is too compromised to play a role in accord with the Constitution of the United States of America.

Neither Mr. Trump nor Mr. Biden has addressed these three critical issues for the United States publically:

The criminal operation to create a false flag attack on the United States, known as the 9.11 incident, as a means of dragging the United States into foreign wars that would rip it apart.

The theft of 10 to 15 trillion dollars from the Federal Government between January and September of 2020 by multinational investment banks and other global players.

The promotion of a bogus “pandemic” known as COVID19 as a means to destroy freedom for citizens, to enact criminal lockdowns and quarantines, and to promote dangerous “vaccines” by multinational corporations employing the stolen authority of the Federal government.

Neither Donald Trump nor Joe Biden have condemned these criminal conspiracies that are self-evident to the casual observer.

That silence makes them coconspirators and disqualifies them both from serving as president. In fact, none of the registered candidates for president that I could find made any clear statements concerning these three issues and they are, therefore, also disqualified.

Finally, neither Mr. Biden nor Mr. Trump possess the temperament, the vision, or the bravery to lead us forward against the enemies, seen and unseen, who are tearing our country apart.

We have entered into uncharted waters in which sacrifice, bravery, leadership and the ability to create entirely new institutions for the benefit of the people, not to serve the rich, will be the primary task. These two men are incapable of rising to this demand.

The only appropriate response we can take in this case is to call for a new, internationally supervised, fair election.

It is impossible to do so now because the Federal Government is run by the criminal syndicates known as the Republican and Democratic Parties, and not by independent government institutions in accord with the Constitution.

The first step, before any elections can be held is to clean house and to upgrade.

We will set up a provisional government in the United States that can address directly, and forcibly, the three criminal conspiracies listed above, and others, and can lay the foundations for the restoration of governance in the United States.

Only then can a meaningful election be held. Only then can we drive out of Washington the super-rich who toy with government for their fun and profit.

It is a dangerous step to proclaim a provisional government, and the risks that this noble effort with be subverted or abused by the same monsters who have laid waste to Washington D.C. is real.

We have, sadly, no choice and no time.

Declaration of Establishment of Provisional Government of US

Declaration of Establishment of Provisional Government of US

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.

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 will provide precisely the “new guards” for the future security of our children, and our grandchildren. We do so through the formal establishment of a provisional government of the United States to oversee the rebuilding of the Republic and the rebuilding of a constitutional democracy in our beloved nation.

First steps for reform of the US Provisional Government

First Steps for Change

of

The Provisional Government

for

The United States of America


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 establish a Provisional Government for the United States of America in accord with the Constitution.

That provisional government will devote its efforts to reestablishing a republic and a democracy based on the Constitution.

That effort can only be successful if we take the following six steps:  




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.   

John Brown’s “Provisional Constitution” and “Declaration of Liberty”

John Brown and his many supporters stood up against the crime of slavery and the corrupt and criminal administrative regime that enabled it in the 1850s. They proposed a provisional constitution that was not meant to be revolutionary, and a “Declaration of Liberty” intended to be an extension of the Declaration of Independence to all Americans.

Although many parts of the two texts are dated, or inappropriate to the current moment, the general import of Brown’s efforts is clearly relevent and provides us with a valuable historical precedent.

It is critical to note that although John Brown was tried and hanged for rebellion, that this argument was specious and fabricated by the criminal slave owners who were afraid that the Constitution might actually be interpreted to follow its original intent and thereby threaten their profits.

The Provisional Constitution, however, is explicit:

These articles not for the overthrow of government.

The foregoing articles shall not be construed so as in any way to encourage the overthrow of any State government, or of the general government of the United States, and look to no dissolution of the Union, but simply to amendment and repeal. And our flag shall be the same that our fathers fought under in the Revolution.

The situation is quite similar to the crisis we face today. Most certainly John Brown is an imperfect model, but he suggests something of what was possible and his work with Frederick Douglass was essential in assuring that the eventual conflict was not a meaningless brawl but had a deeper significance.

“A Declaration of Liberty”

1858

By the Representatives of the slave Population of the United States of America

“When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary” for an Oppressed People to Rise, and assert their Natural Rights, as Human Beings, as Native & mutual Citizens of a free Republic, and break that odious Yoke of oppression, which is so unjustly laid upon them by their fellow Countrymen, “and to assume among the powers of Earth the same equal privileges to which the Laws of Nature, & natures God entitle them; A moderate respect for the opinions of Mankind, requires that they should declare the causes which incite them to this just & worthy action.

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; & the pursuit of happiness. That Nature hath freely given to all Men, a full Supply of Air. Water, & Land; for their sustenance, & mutual happiness, That No Man has any right to deprive his fellow Man, of these Inherent rights, except in punishment of Crime. That to secure these rights governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That when any form of Government, becomes destructive to these ends, It is the right of the People, to alter, Amend, or Remodel it, Laying its foundation on Such Principles, & organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect the safety, & happiness” of the Human Race, To secure equal rights, privileges, & justice to all; Irrespective of Sex; or Nation; To Secure Fraternal Kindness to all Friends of Equal Moral privileges, to all who honestly abandon their Despotic oppressive rule. We hold this truth to be self-evident; That it is the highest Privilege, & Plain Duty of Man; to strive in every reasonable way, to promote the Happiness, Mental, Moral, & Physical,

Elevation of his fellow Man. And that People, or Clannish Oppressors; who wickedly violate this sacred principle; oppressing th their fellow Men, Will bring upon themselves that certain & fearful retribution, which is the Natural, and Necessary penalty of evil Doing. “Prudence, indeed will dictate, that Governments long established, should not be changed for light & transient causes; But when a long train of abuses, & usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object; evinces a design to perpetuate an absolute Despotism; and most cruel bondage; It is their Right, it is their Duty to resist & change such Government, & provide safeguards for their future Liberty” Such has been the patient sufferance of the slaves of the United States, and such is now the necessity which constrains them to brush this foul system of oppression, The history of Slavery in the Unites States, is a history of injustice & Cruelties inflicted upon the Slave in every conceivable way, & in barbarity not surpassed by the most Savage Tribes. It is the embodiment of all that is Evil, and ruinous to a Nation; and subversive of all Good. “In proof of which; facts innumerable have been submitted to the People, and have received the Verdict & condemnation of a candid & Impartial World.”

Our Servants; Members of Congress; & other Servants of the People, who receive exorbitant wages, from the People ask in return for; for their unjust Rule, have refused to pass Laws the most wholesome & necessary for public good, they have refused to pass laws for the accommodation of large districts of People, unless that People, would relinquish the right of representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them, and formidable to tyrants only. Our President & other Leeches have called together Legislative, or treasonable Bodies, at places unusual, uncomfortable, & distant from the depository of our public records; for the sole purpose of fatiguing us into compliance with their measures. They have dissolved   Representative houses, for opposing with Manly firmness, their invasions on the rights of the people.

They have refused to grant Petitions presented by numerous & respectable Citizens, asking redress of grievances imposed upon us, demanding our Liberty & natural rights. With Contempt, they Spurn and our humble petitions; and have failed to pass Laws for our relief. They have prevented in all possible ways, the administration of justice to the slave, They have made judges Taney dependent on their will alone, for the tenure of their offices, & the amount & payment of their salaries, They have erected a Multitude of new offices, & sent on swarms of Blood Suckers, & Moths, to harass the People, & eat out their substance, They have effected to render the Military, independent of, & superior to the power & wishes of the People (the Civil power.) Claiming that knowledge is power, they have, (for their own safety) kept us in total darkness, & Ignorance, inflicting base cruelties, for any attempt on our part to obtain knowledge “They have protected base Men, Pirates (engaged in a most Inhuman traffic; The Foreign; & Domestic, Slave Trade.) by mock trials, from punishment, for unprovoked murders which they have committed upon us, & free citizens of the States.

They have prevented by law, our having any Traffic or deal with our fellow Men; Regardless of our wishes, they declare themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. They have abdicated government among us, by declaring us out of their protection, & waging a worse than most cruel war upon us continually.

“The welfare of the People; Is the first Great Law.” The fact, & a full description of the enormous Sin of Slavery, may be found in the General History of American Slavery, which is a history of repeated injuries, of base hypocrisy; A cursed treasonable, Despotic usurpation; The most abominable provoking atrocities; Which are but a mockery of all that is just, or worthy of any people. Such cruelty, tyranny, & perfidy, has hardly a parallel, in the history of the most barbarous ages, Our Servants, or Law makers; are totally unworthy the name of Half Civilized Men. All their National acts, (which apply to Slavery,) are false, to the words spirit, & intention, of the Constitution of the United States, & the Declaration of Independence. They say by word & Act, That their own Children, or any faithful Citizen, may be legally robed of every Natural & Sacred Right, & that we, have no rights whatever.

They are a Blot upon the Character, the honor, of any Nation, which Claims to have the least shadow or spark of Civilization above the lowest, most inferior Cannibal Races. This is a slight though brief recital, of some of the enormous atrocities, of these Idle, haughty, tyrannical, Arrogant Land Monopolists; Slave holders our lords, & masters, From which, Good Lord Deliver us. These are some of the facts, which we now, (after the lapse of 83 years, since the writing & signing of that Sacred Instrument, Honored & Adored by our Fathers, which declares that it is Self-Evident that all Men are Created Equal, Endowed by their Creator with certain inherent rights &c”) submit to the Decision of all candid; true Republican, Friends of Universal Freedom, & Natural Equality of Rights. All We Demand; is our Liberty, & the Natural rights & immunities of faithful Citizens of the United States.

We will Obtain these rights or Die in the struggle to obtain them We make war upon oppression, we have no controversy with any Religious Sect, Our intention is not to molest any Good Man, whatever may be his religious belief.

We hold these to be self-evident truths, That any Tribe, Rulers, or People, who Rob & cruelly oppress their faithful Laboring Citizens, have within themselves the Germ, of their own certain & fearful overthrow; It is one of Nature’s Immutable Laws; that “According to the measure ye mite; so shall it be Measured to you again.” Herein is the secret of security & true happiness, for Individuals, And the Only Firm Basis, upon which Governments, may be p Permanently Established; Where the Citizens, are Devoted to the greatest good of their Fellow Men, The more humble, benighted & oppressed they are, so much the more sympathy; & earnest effort for their relief, is demanded, striving earnestly to promote the safety and prosperity of their Nation; & the Human Race.

It is a fixed Law of Nature, That any People, or Nation, whose [sturdy?] purpose, & Constant Practice, is in accordance with these principles; Must go forward Progressing; So long as Man Continues to Exist. For in Nature the Principle of Reciprocity is Great.

“The Legitimate object of all Punishment, is to prevent Crime” When any Punishment is inflicted, more than is necessary to prevent crime, it then ceases to be a Punishment. It has become a Barbarous Crime. A Sore Evil. “The Natural Object of all Government is to Protect the right, Defend the Innocent.”  When any set of Usurpers, Tribe, or Community, fail to protect the right, but furnish protection & encouragement to the Villain, by bestowing a Bounty, or Premium, upon the vile Thief, Robber , Libertine, Pirate; & Woman killing Slave Holder; as a reward, for their deeds of rascality and Barbarism; And inflict grievous cruelties upon the innocent, Shooting & Butchering those most faithful, Citizens, who have Striven Manfully, for the relief of the downtrodden &; oppressed of their Country), who fought bravely in support of the Great Principles set forth in D our Declaration of Independence, from the oppressive Rule of England.) Encouraging in various ways, by bribery & fraud, the most Fiendish acts of Barbarism (like those Perpetrated within the limits of the United States, in Florida, at Blounts Fort; in Florida & in other Territories.) under the Jurisdiction & guidance of Slaveholding Authority, & in strict accordance with Slaveholding Rules).

They have transcended their own limits, They have fairly outwitted themselves; Their Slave Code, is a shame to any Nation, Their Laws, are no Laws; they themselves are no more than a Band compilation of Base Piratical Rulers. They are a curse to themselves, a most lamentable Blot upon Society.

“In every stage of these oppressions, we have petitioned for redress, in the most humble terms, Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated Injuries, A Class of oppressors, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrannical Despotism, is unfit to rule any People. Nor have we been wanting in attention, to our Oppressors; we have warned them from time to time, of attempts (made by their headlong Blindness,) to perpetuate, extend, strengthen, & revive the dying elements of this cursed Institution. We have reminded them of our unhappy condition, and of their cruelties. We have appealed to their native justice & magnanimity, to we have conjured them by the ties of our common nature, our Brotherhood, & Common Parentage, to disavow these usurpations, which have destroyed our Kindred friendship, and endangered their safety.

“They have been Deaf to the voice of Justice & Consanguinity. We must therefore acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces their tyranny & unjust rule over us. Declaring that we will serve them no longer as slaves, Knowing that the Laborer is worthy of his hire.” We therefore, the Representatives of the Circumscribed Citizens of the United States, of America in General Congress Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World, for the rectitude of our intentions, Do in the name, & by the authority.

First Steps for Provisional Government of United States

First Steps for Provisional Government of United States

First Steps for Change

of

The Provisional Government

for

The United States of America


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 establish a Provisional Government for the United States of America in accord with the Constitution.

That provisional government will devote its efforts to reestablishing a republic and a democracy based on the Constitution.

That effort can only be successful if we take the following six steps:  




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.

Emanuel Pastreich for President

Кандидат в президенты Эммануил Пастрайк

ПРОГРАММА ИЗ 18 ПУНКТОВ


1. Мы не призна́ем нечестные выборы

Нынешняя избирательная система коррумпирована до такой степени, что ее существование и вовсе лишено всякого смысла. Кандидата, отвечающего всем предъявляемым критериям, не допускают к участию в выборах, а СМИ игнорируют его тезисы и деятельность, намеренно лишая граждан доступа к важной информации. Голоса подсчитываются с помощью компьютерных систем, изначально допускающих возможность взлома, поэтому у народа и вовсе не остается никаких шансов воспользоваться своим священным правом выбора. В регионах с высоким уровнем бедности машин для голосования так мало, что после тяжелого рабочего дня люди вынуждены часами простаивать на холоде в очередях вплоть до глубокой ночи.

Последние выборы стали пародией на настоящую процедуру избрания, а демократы и республиканцы проявили себя в качестве стервятников, ковыряющих каркас Статуи Свободы, незначительно отличаясь при этом лишь своим оперением.

Мы не призна́ем выборы на пост президента или любую другую должность законными до тех пор, пока в стране не пройдут выборы под международным наблюдением, на которых каждому гражданину будет гарантировано право голоса в рамках системы проверяемого голосования, а любой кандидат, отвечающий всем предъявляемым критериям, получит возможность представлять свою программу избирателям напрямую. Выборы должны быть прозрачными на всех уровнях, а коммерческая реклама — запрещена.

Прошлые выборы были легитимны, но совесть не позволяет нам принять весь этот процесс. Меня не волнует, что, баллотируясь в президенты, я не получу финансирование от богачей или поддержку политических партий, а знаменитости не будут петь мне дифирамбы. Мы понимаем, что если не произойдет революционных изменений, то следующие выборы будут до такой степени сфальсифицированы, что принимать их результаты или признавать победителей нам никак нельзя.

Более того, и сами «избранные» вскоре докажут, что представителями народа они никоим образом не являются. Народу, то есть нам с вами, придется дождаться проведения легитимных выборов, к участию в которых будут допущены по-настоящему легитимные кандидаты.

2. Изменение климата — колоссальная угроза безопасности;

Противодействие ей должно осуществляться по всем направлениям внутренней и внешней политики

Краеугольным камнем всей политики Соединенных Штатов в области безопасности, экономики и образования должно стать полное следование столетнему плану по смягчению последствий изменения климата и адаптации к этому явлению. Чтобы свести к нулю использование нефти и угля в течение двух-трех лет и исключить применение пластмасс, минеральных удобрений и прочих материалов, мы должны направить все силы на реализацию этого плана, который по важности сопоставим с военной экономикой.

Правительством будут изданы директивы о стремительном сокращении использования ископаемого топлива, прекращении эксплуатации личных автомобилей и ограничении полетов авиатранспорта. Мы профинансируем установку солнечных электростанций и ветрогенераторов в каждом районе. Для достижения этой цели все авторские права на эти технологии должны быть переданы правительством в общественное достояние. В целях сведения уровня выбросов углерода к нулю будет немедленно проведена модернизация всех зданий по части теплоизоляции, а также солнечной и ветряной энергии. Правительство сделает это за счет займов сроком до 50 лет, что в итоге сразу сделает возобновляемую энергию дешевле, чем ископаемое топливо в перспективе долгосрочных затрат.

Мы отменим все субсидии на нефть, уголь и уран. Эти виды топлива будут классифицированы как контролируемые вещества, не предназначенные для продажи с целью получения прибыли.

Сектор военной экономики полностью перейдет на возобновляемые источники энергии быстрее, чем остальная часть страны и станет самым мощным защитником экосистемы, а не участником нефтяных войн или фальшивой геоинженерии.

Загрязняющие атмосферу истребители и устаревшие авианосцы будут немедленно утилизированы, несмотря на потенциальную прибыль от их использования для корпораций. Мы гарантируем поддержку тем, кто потеряет работу в переходный период трудоустройства в рамках проектов по возобновляемой энергии. По сути, мы гарантируем трудоустройство всем желающим.

Нефтегазовые корпорации заработали триллионы долларов, подвергая граждан воздействию опасных веществ, таких как нефть, уголь и природный газ, прекрасно осознавая при этом их разрушительное влияние на окружающую среду. Такие действия преступны. Активы таких корпораций и их владельцев будут конфискованы государством, а эти средства будут использованы для финансирования трансформации нашей экономики. Напрасный перевод продуктов, энергии и природных ресурсов будет считаться гнусным поступком, каким он на самом деле и является, и никогда не будет преподноситься как символ лучшей жизни.

Правительство будет контролировать строительство действительно экологически чистых районов как в черте города, так и в его окрестностях, а также будет заниматься восстановлением заповедников для сохранения биоразнообразия. Это будет подразумевать снос торговых центров, парковок, заводов и автомагистралей, осквернивших наши священные леса и благородные водно-болотные угодья.

3. Любой ценой ликвидировать ядерное оружие

Человечеству грозит беспрецедентная опасность ядерной войны, причем ситуация еще больше усугубляется из-за распространения «готовых к использованию» ядерных мини-устройств. Наши триллионные траты на модернизацию ядерных сил вместо их ликвидации представляют собой весьма печальное зрелище.

Каким бы болезненным ни был этот процесс, мы возьмем на себя обязательство полностью освободить Землю от этого опасного оружия. Ради блага наших детей мы принудительно изымем и уничтожим все ядерное оружие, сначала в Соединенных Штатах, а затем во всех остальных странах мира. Чтобы остановить разработку ядерного оружия мы будем сотрудничать с активными группами граждан как внутри страны, так и за рубежом, в правительственных кругах, а также и за их пределами.

4. Провести международные научные расследования событий прошлого, чего многие стараются избегать

Мы не сможем справиться с угрозой изменения климата и ядерной войны, пока не избавимся от культуры отрицания, охватившей нас за последние двадцать лет. Мы не должны бояться провести честное расследование действий, совершенных небольшой группой влиятельных лиц после выборов 2000 года, включая трагедию 9/11.

Чтобы наши граждане и весь остальной мир смог узнать подлинную историю, в рамках расследования мы должны использовать силу научного метода, а также создать международные группы по «установлению истины и примирения». Не должно быть никаких ограничений в отношении того, насколько далеко зайдет это расследование. Учитывая серьезность дела, все материалы, имеющие к нему отношение, должны быть рассекречены. Мы также не должны довольствоваться примитивными и нереалистичными обвинениями в адрес той или иной стороны. Убийство в Восточном экспрессе — преступление, которое удалось раскрыть.

5. Вернуть домой американские войска и модернизировать Организацию Объединенных Наций

Соединенные Штаты должны вернуть большую часть войск, дислоцированных по всему миру со времен Второй мировой войны. Эти войска нередко использовались в наемных целях для обслуживания интересов богатых. Мы должны быть готовы сражаться и умирать за настоящую международную безопасность, но делать это исключительно в соответствии с уставом Организации Объединенных Наций. Куда лучше рисковать жизнью в борьбе против сил корыстолюбия, защищая почву под своими ногами, воды океанов от отравления и леса от вырубки, нежели вести бессмысленные войны за ресурсы ради транснациональных корпораций.

Организация Объединенных Наций должна стать главным центром разработки и реализации планов касательно будущего нашей хрупкой планеты. В противном случае мы должны действовать на местном уровне, придерживаясь при этом глобального видения. Сделать это удастся лишь в том случае, если Соединенные Штаты и Организация Объединенных Наций проведут всеобъемлющие реформы, которые уполномочат их представлять жителей планеты без вмешательства корпораций или богачей.

6. Корпорации — это не граждане;

Богатые получают не более одного голоса

Корпорации не являются гражданами, поэтому они не должны участвовать в обсуждении политических вопросов. То же самое касается и сверхбогатых, а также инвестиционных банков, посредством которых они выражают свою волю. Важную для управленцев информацию должны предоставлять пожизненные госслужащие, профессора и прочие эксперты, занимающиеся объективной оценкой текущего состояния нашей страны, не испытывая при этом давления с целью извлечения прибыли.

Богатые — это такие же люди, а значит, прав у них столько же, сколько и у всех остальных. У них не должно быть никаких привилегий в вопросах определения политического курса. Те, кто прямо либо косвенно используют деньги для влияния на политику, вовлечены в коррупцию и взяточничество. Мы не должны скрывать такие ​​преступления за безобидными терминами вроде «консультирования» и «лоббирования».

Мы должны расширить полномочия госаппарата, чтобы правительство вновь обрело независимость от корпораций и могло создать строгую нормативно-правовую базу для защиты людей. Мы уже делали это раньше и сможем сделать снова. В ходе этого процесса многие корпорации, такие как банки или телекоммуникационные и энергетические компании будут национализированы, а управлять ими будет компетентный штат из госслужащих, священной миссией которых является общее благо. Прочие корпорации будут работать как коллективные объединения на местном уровне, находясь в собственности и под контролем граждан. Подобный тип управления на основе нравственных принципов уходит корнями еще в древние времена и не требует идеологического оформления.

7. Экономика, построенная людьми и для людей

Демократия невозможна без экономического равенства и строгого финансового контроля. Пока мы были в спячке, вороватая клика десятилетиями наживала огромные богатства незаконным и аморальным путем и откладывала заработанные магическим образом деньги за границей. Большинство наших граждан даже представить не могут размах коррупции, скрывающейся за сияющими фасадами промышленности и правительства во всех уголках страны.

Всему этому будет положен конец. Мы уполномочим тысячи профессиональных аудиторов в Налоговой службе и других правительственных организациях безбоязненно провести при поддержке ФБР полную проверку всех ветвей власти, включая Министерство обороны. Мы потребуем проведения полного финансового аудита Конгресса и всех его членов. Будет проверена и вся исполнительная власть, а также все основные члены судебной системы. Мы не побоимся увольнять, штрафовать и сажать в тюрьму тысячи людей или даже больше, если это будет необходимо.

Как только правительство вновь вернется к работе на благо наших почтенных граждан, мы проведем этот же процесс и в отношении корпораций, а также сверхбогатых.

Помните, что деньги, которые и не снились простому смертному, наживаются путем недобросовестного доступа к капиталу в сочетании с незаконным бизнесом. Активы таких людей будут урезаны до размеров, не позволяющих использовать эти средства для подрыва журналистской, политической или образовательной деятельности. Отныне финансы станут строго регулируемой сферой, подконтрольной главным образом правительственным организациям, которые в свою очередь подотчетны народу. Региональные банки примут форму кооперативов, а управлять ими  будут сами граждане, руководствуясь интересами местной экономики. Цифровые валюты, подвергающие граждан риску со стороны неподотчетных транснациональных банков, будут запрещены.

8. Поддержать настоящее образование и журналистские расследования

Если гражданам не дают доступа к качественному образованию, в котором они нуждаются, чтобы уметь критически осмысливать наше общество и в полной мере использовать бесконечный потенциал своего воображения, то такую политику нельзя считать разумной. Чтобы разбираться в сложных вопросах современности, людям нужно с раннего возраста изучать историю и литературу, философию и науку.

Мы создадим новую систему образования, в рамках которой ко всем гражданам будут относиться одинаково. Финансирование школ никогда не будет привязано к местным налогам на недвижимость. Зарплата учителей будут такая же, как и у других членов общества. Мы ожидаем, что каждый человек станет активным гражданином, поэтому все жители страны получат право на качественное образование.

Журналистика является продолжением образования, и поэтому она должна информировать граждан о реальных проблемах, а не о сенсационных событиях, и учить их критически осмысливать подлинную суть экономических и культурных реалий.

К сожалению, сегодня журналистика превратилась в мерзкие нечистоты, загрязняющие газеты, телепередачи и публикации в Интернете гротескными картинками и распутными подписями, словом разного рода низостями, взывающим к нашим худшим личностным качествам.

Люди должны учиться мыслить объективно и работать сообща над созданием лучшего общества, но вместо этого их забрасывают информационным мусором, который стимулирует похоть или поощряет бездумное потребление.

Правительство должно на местном и национальном уровне поддерживать независимые СМИ, которые нацелены на поиск истины и призывают граждан думать своей головой. Смелая журналистика, в том числе журналистские расследования на темы серьезных проблем современности, должна снова стать жизнеспособным карьерным направлением.

Искусство, будь то живопись, скульптура, дизайн, драматургия, музыка или литература, должно быть частью жизни наших граждан. Правительство будет поддерживать такую ​​деятельность, создавая атмосферу доверия, в которой люди смогут самовыражаться и формулировать видение нашего общего будущего. Нельзя принуждать людей полагаться на блестящие образы или бойкие лозунги, распространяемые корпоративными СМИ.

Поощрение художественного самовыражения освободит молодежь от банальной и манипулятивной культуры, с которой они сегодня имеют дело и которая подталкивает их к мимолетным удовольствиям, лишая возможности вносить свой вклад в развитие общества. Имея возможность создавать собственные фильмы, газеты, картины и фотографии, получая при этом достойную заработную плату за свою работу, они обретут уверенность в том, что смогут изменить общество.  

9. 13-я поправка требует положить конец рабству

13-я поправка к нашей Конституции прямо запрещает рабство. Тем не менее, многие наши граждане вынуждены влезать в долги из-за презренных действий банков, работая при этом на заводах и в магазинах поистине в рабских условиях. Среди наших граждан есть и те, кто находятся тюрьмах, зачастую по сфабрикованным делам, и вынуждены работать бесплатно или даже в обмен за возможность увидеться со своими близкими. Все эти преступления совершаются ради прибыли корпораций.

Эта гнусная практика будет полностью прекращена строгим соблюдением 13-й поправки.

Транснациональные корпорации, которые лишь притворяются американцами, к самим американским рабочим относятся с презрением. Даже к полицейским, солдатам, а также служащим местных и федеральных органов и предприятий корпорации относятся с презрением, как к рабам, стремясь поставить их в зависимость от базового дохода, что является вопиющим нарушением 13-й поправки.

10 Торговля должна быть экологически чистой и по-настоящему свободной

Торговля может считаться отличной возможностью товарообмена между сообществами по всему миру. Но торговля в том виде, в котором она существует сегодня, наносит ущерб нашей прекрасной экосистеме и людям. Под торговлей понимаются лишь огромные контейнеровозы инвестиционных банков, чадящие жутким дымом, перевозя по морям товары ради прибыли узкого круга лиц, а не блага тех, кто эти товары производит или использует.

Все это однозначно не идет на пользу жителям планеты, и уж тем более не является «интернационализацией», так как, согласно «торговым» планам инвестиционных банков и прочих дельцов, местные отрасли промышленности и сельского хозяйства будут уничтожены, а граждане будут против своей воли поставлены в зависимость от импортируемых товаров. Мы должны вместе полностью переосмыслить процесс торговли и создать такую торговую систему, которая будет учитывать потребности местных сообществ, работать без использования ископаемого топлива и будет доступна всем.

11. В основе нынешнего политического кризиса лежит моральный упадок

Нынешний кризис — это прежде всего кризис духовный. Пока мы были в спячке, наша нация погрузилась в упадок и нарциссизм. Эта болезнь цивилизаций поражает даже лучших из нас. Такие понятия как скромность, бережливость и честность исчезли из нашего словаря. Место невидимого внутреннего мира ценностей и личности, который должен лежать в основе морального сознания граждан, занял спектакль, в котором человеку уготована роль пассивного потребителя безнравственности.

Пока мы не научимся контролировать наши собственные действия и лишь после этого формировать сообщества, которые могут требовать справедливости, пока мы не сможем доверять нашим соседям, откровенно говорить со своими детьми и отстаивать общие ценности, у нас не получится противостоять силам, захватившим нашу страну.

12. Реорганизовать военно-разведывательный комплекс

Отсутствие контроля за вооруженными силами позволяет корпорациям присваивать себе наши налоги, переводя их напрямую на свои банковские счета путем продажи по завышенной цене оружия, которое не подлежит внешней проверке или научным испытаниям.

Нам нужны мужчины и женщины, готовые отдать жизнь за свою страну. К сожалению, эти благородные порывы оказались цинично искажены. Военные и разведывательные подразделения должны быть реорганизованы и нацелены прежде всего на смягчение последствий изменения климата и адаптации к этому явлению, а также на противодействие другим реальным угрозам безопасности, например биофашизму.

Храбрость солдат должна быть направлена на опасную работу по прекращению господства над нашей страной гигантов топливного рынка и их приспешников, а также на преобразование нашей экономики.

Солдаты! Если вы не в состоянии противостоять энергетическим царям, то как вы можете называть себя храбрыми?

Вопреки предупреждению Джорджа Вашингтона об опасностях «связывания нашего мира и процветания», мы с головой погрузились в многочисленные секретные договоры, небрежно именуемые «обменом разведданных» и «сотрудничеством в области безопасности», которые ведут нас к катастрофе, подобной 1914 году. Тогда ужасающий эффект домино был вызван именно такими секретными договорами, втянувшими мир в катастрофическую войну.

Все вы, кто работает по контракту на низкооплачиваемых должностях в АНБ, все, кто вынужден читать наши бесконечные электронные письма или бродить по опасным горным перевалам в Афганистане, все вы, кто вынужден терроризировать простых людей из-за глупостей безнравственных корпораций, слушайте мне! Истинно, говорю тебе: «Пойдем с нами! Тебе нечего терять, кроме своих цепей».

13. Остановить опасное влияние технологий на граждан

Существование СМИ как показательная эволюция технологий, несомненно, является достижением. Однако, в большинстве случаев такие новые технологии лишают нас способности сосредоточиться и умения думать самостоятельно, отбирая необходимую для существования в роли граждан сознательность. Технологии используются таким образом, чтобы поставить нас зависимость от мимолетных удовольствий. Такие электронные инструменты приносят прибыль корпорациям, но самих граждан они делают неспособными понять серьезность кризиса, с которым мы имеем дело.

Мы хотим взаимодействовать с другими людьми, и нам нужны рабочие места, которые позволяют нам это делать. Но все, что нам предлагают, — это голосовые сообщения, кассы самообслуживания и длинные ряды суперкомпьютеров, холодно подсчитывающие прибыль корпораций. Мы совсем одни в цифровой пустыне, и это не случайность, а скорее умышленное преступление.

Прежде чем использовать технологии мы должны досконально проанализировать их влияние на общество. Технологии могут быть чрезвычайно полезны, но только в том случае, если они применяются для решения реальных проблем современности, а не для манипулирования нами.

Нашей целью всегда должно быть научное понимание состояния нашей планеты и общества. Мы смешиваем науку с технологиями на свой страх и риск. Как писал Пол Гудман: «Независимо от того, основаны ли технологии на новых научных исследованиях или нет, они являются отраслью этики, а не науки».

14. Прекратить антиинтеллектуальную деятельность по одурачиванию населения

Наши граждане непрерывно становятся объектами деятельности, поощряющей антиинтеллектуальные настроения и препятствующей глубоким размышлениям о мироустройстве. Такие изменения не свойственны нашей культуре, поскольку вызваны скрытыми силами, стремящимися приручить нас.

Мы должны повысить уровень интеллектуальной вовлеченности во всех уголках нашей страны, побуждая людей думать своей головой и предлагать собственные решения. Для стимулирования этого процесса решающее значение имеют чтение, письмо и дискуссия, а значит, эти виды деятельности должны поощряться.

Граждане никогда не должны полагаться на поверхностное и ограниченное мнение знаменитостей.

Мы не можем допустить, чтобы ядовитый лес рекламных и PR-агентств одурачивал граждан, навязывая пагубный культ эгоизма. Ущерб, который они уже успели нанести, поистине ужасен. Зыбучие пески банальности поглотили все телеканалы, торговые центры и офисы.

В СМИ граждане должны видеть образы, стимулирующие интеллектуальную активность и поддерживающие здоровое общество. Для этого индустрия рекламы и PR должна подчиняться самым строгим правилам. Люди имеют право читать статьи и смотреть передачи, которые описывают нашу реальность с научной точки зрения, а также у них есть право не быть аудиторией программ, сцены которых восхваляют разгульную жизнь богачей.

15. Возродить принцип семи поколений племени ирокезов;

Положить конец культуре роста и потребления

И хотя конституция ирокезов оказала глубокое влияние на Конституцию Соединенных Штатов, наши отцы-основатели, к огромному сожалению, упустили из виду один ее важный пункт, а именно — упор на устойчивое развитие. Традиции ирокезов и других коренных народов ни в коем случае нельзя забывать. Принцип «седьмого поколения» ирокезов обязывает учитывать влияние наших сегодняшних решений на жизнь потомков через семь поколений. Этот научный и рациональный принцип резко контрастирует с иррациональным представлением о том, что океаны, леса и луга являются товарами, которые принадлежат отдельным лицам или корпорациям, и что они могут быть уничтожены ради личной выгоды.

Принцип «седьмого поколения» должен быть закреплен в Конституции в виде поправки, которая послужит основой для полной переоценки наших представлений об экономике и культуре.

Мы должны перестать использовать обманчивые термины вроде «роста» и «потребления» для оценки благосостояния нации. Мы должны учитывать как здоровье всех наших граждан, так и благополучие окружающей среды, в том числе диких животных и растений.

Взаимопомощь необходима для нашего выживания. Если бюджеты лишь стимулируют зависимость от денег, то решать проблемы с их помощью мы не сможем. Для взаимопомощи соседней мы должны создать бартерные системы между гражданами, а также разработать программы взаимной поддержки, благодаря которым семьи и сообщества смогут стать самодостаточными.

Здравоохранение нельзя обеспечить лишь путем движения государственных средств с одного счета на другой. Мы также должны позволить гражданам ухаживать друг за другом, изучать медицину, лечебные травы и соответствующие упражнения, с помощью чего многие болезни можно будет вылечить самостоятельно, не тратя денег вообще.

16. Сельское хозяйство для людей и здоровая и справедливая экономика продовольствия

Быстрое повышение температуры, вызванное глобальным потеплением, спровоцирует экспоненциальный рост стоимости продуктов питания в течение следующего десятилетия и сделает сельское хозяйство наиболее важным видом деятельности для выживания. Мы даже не начали готовиться к этой катастрофе.

Мы должны оставить позади обанкротившуюся систему промышленного земледелия и вернуться к сельскому хозяйству, которым будут заниматься люди и на благо людей. Земля должна быть передана большому количеству граждан для использования в качестве семейных ферм. Здесь нечего оплакивать или осуждать. Земля и вода, что нам даровала наша планета, никогда не были и не будут собственностью корпораций.

Вся система распределения продукции сельского хозяйства должна контролироваться и, следовательно, быть справедливой. Производство продуктов питания без вреда нашей почве и воде гораздо важнее, чем огромная нажива узких круг лиц на экспорте сельскохозяйственной продукции. Американцы должны принять устойчивое органическое сельское хозяйство, причем сделать это немедленно.

17. В Конституции нет упоминаний ни Республиканской, ни Демократической партий

Весь этот цирк с импичментом показал нам, что нынешняя политическая система не имеет ничего общего с Конституцией. Система управления уничтожена, а политика превратилась в потасовку между корпоративными лоббистами, инвестиционными банкирами и служащим богачам телеведущими. В работе СМИ уже давно не осталось и следа журналистской честности, и они лишь подначивают всех этих участников драки, словно пьяная толпа.

Обсуждения, связанные с формированием и реализацией политики, должны открыто проводиться в государственных учреждениях, определенных Конституцией.

Однако сегодня политику определяют корпорации, а обсуждение политических вопросов ведется закулисно внутри неподотчетных политических партий, что явно противоречит Конституции. Не дайте себя обмануть. Ни Демократическая, ни Республиканская партии не упомянуты в Конституции и не представляют абсолютное большинство наших граждан.

Преступно позволять не регламентированным Конституцией партиям решать политические вопросы, и эту практику необходимо прекратить.

Политические партии выступают в качестве подходящей площадки для встреч граждан на местном уровне и обмена идеями. Конституция не предоставляет Демократической и Республиканской партиям права осуществлять руководство или разрабатывать политику. На территории всей страны правом на осуществление власти должны обладать подотчетные государственные органы, при этом вести работу они должны прозрачно и без использования денег корпораций.

18. Отменить масочный режим и вакцинацию

Прикрываясь коррумпированными правительственными чиновниками, фиктивными общественными организациями и безнравственными знаменитостями, сверхбогатые навязывают введение масочного режима и локдауна, чтобы изолировать нас друг от друга и отобрать наше конституционное право на свободу собраний.

Научно доказано, что ношение масок вредит здоровью, а значит, является вопиющим проявлением жестокости. То же самое касается и локдаунов.

С помощью своей доли акций в медиа-гигантах богачи требуют, чтобы новостные сюжеты активно призывали к введению локальных ограничений и вакцинации.

Они подкупили и экспертов, чтобы те выступили за немедленное использование вакцин, разработка которых была освобождена от юридической ответственности и осуществлялась тайно, а сами препараты не были протестированы даже на животных. Эти вакцины содержат модифицированную РНК, которая вызывает серьезные заболевания, такие как рак, болезнь Альцгеймера, болезнь Паркинсона и т.д. На деле это и вовсе не вакцины, а скорее объявление войны людям, пронизанным идеями здоровья, безопасности и защищенности.

Незаконная принудительная вакцинация заставит людей ввести в свой организм химические вещества, список которых был тайно составлен транснациональными корпорациями, а затем одобрен подконтрольными им мировыми и национальными ведомствами. В рамках обсуждения данного вопроса не учитывались ни мнения ученых, ни обычных граждан, что является прямым нарушением конституции.

Под предлогом нынешнего кризиса предпринимаются попытки внедрить постоянное наблюдение, заменить деньги цифровыми валютами, которые контролируются транснациональными банками, а также уничтожить весь малый бизнес. Нашу еду контролируют транснациональные корпорации, нужные нам для лечения лекарства — под контролем фармацевтических компаний, а образование, которое нам нужно для понимания мира, и журналистика, необходимая для того, чтобы держать нас в курсе событий, находятся в руках глобальных инвестиционных банков и мультимиллиардеров.

Atlantic Council’s “Domestic violent extremism and the intelligence challenge”

The Atlantic Council Released a report “Domestic violent extremism and the intelligence challenge” that attributes the so-called “storming of the Capitol Building” on January 6 as a failure of intelligence and that explains why this event (which was clearly was a media show and not a true terrorist attack) serves as a justification for the creation of a Domestic Violent Extremism Unit (DVEAU) under the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) that reports to the Director of National Intelligence. That is to say, that American citizens will be treated like foreign terrorists from now on, and that the government is free to monitor them to whatever degree it sees fit through organizations that are not linked to the local police and are unaccountable. The government, which has become a toy of the super-rich, is free to use whatever force is appropriate against any domestic political criticism.

The author, Mitchell D. Silber, offers us new terms like “domestic violent extremism” (DVE) and “racial or ethnically motivated violence” (REMV). that will justify juicy budgets and will permit the oppression of political opposition intelligence agencies that do not have to work with local police or the judicial branch.  

This proposal for unleashing the full fury of the intelligence apparatus on American citizens is not happening in a vacuum. These steps are being taken at precisely the moment that citizens are becoming aware, through the unprecedented deaths and traumatic side-effects, that the COVID19 vaccine regime is an attempt to reduce our citizens to sickly GMOs and that it has nothing to do with concern for their wellbeing.

That is to say that the massive campaign against DVE (“domestic violent extremism”) is unleashed at precisely the moment that the collapse of governance in the United States is becoming apparent to everyone.

Reference:

“The Atlantic Council report, “Domestic Violent Extremism and the Intelligence Challenge,” by Mitchell D. Silber presents recommendations to improve the effectiveness of the post-9/11 intelligence architecture against the domestic violent-extremist threat, and reform the intelligence architecture, including a more robust collection of social media content, and the creation of a Domestic Violent Extremism Unit (DVEAU) inside the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), which would report to the Director of National Intelligence. The May 11, 2021 announcement by DHS Secretary Mayorkas of the restoration of a domestic terrorism branch within the Department’s Office of Intelligence & Analysis (I&A) does not change the need for a more substantial unit within NCTC.”

“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。
