1) White multimillionaires working for billionaires who work for multibillionaires whose main objective is total control of all forms of human exchanges, from school, to family, from work to recreation, from medicine to nutrition, all of it, through their evil orifices.
What do we give the world now, those of us in the 80 percent in Western countries, 90 percent in other countries? Strong, single-doze Nazi eliminating cyanide capsule at the ready for the moment of voluntary (extinction)?
That’s where we are at — more and more people realizing there is no Bruce Willis or Arnold Schwarznegger or Wonder Woman or Batman to come to the rescue. And rescuing is what this entire world is in need of, but first, damn the rich, damn the banks, damn the militarists, damn the lawyers, damn the banks again, damn the hedge funds, damn the real estate folk, damn the insurance companies and damn the monopolies.
After a stint in the army, Knight started reading books about how overpopulation would imminently lead to food shortages and famine (a thesis soon disproved, of course, by the Third Agricultural Revolution). He joined a movement called Zero Population Growth, which wanted every couple to stop breeding after they’d had two children, and at 25 he secured himself a free vasectomy by letting a student doctor use him for practice. But eventually, Knight decided that simply limiting human population growth would never be enough: even a much smaller human population would continue to crowd and defile everywhere it occupied. And so, in the late 1980s, after settling in Portland, Oregon, Knight founded the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement. “Our message is simple,” he claims, “we encourage people to stop procreating so the biosphere might return to its former glory, and everyone already here will be able to live life more abundantly.” (Source)
This is what Bill Gates, Kissinger, the Israeli Jews, World Economic Forum, and so many of the other elites, eugenicists, the Trumps or Bidens, Clintons or Obamas, want. Every leader at the Aspen Conference, all those Davos Dillingers, all the people on foreign affairs councils, this or that ancient or not-so-ancient lobby or group run by the Rockefellers, BlackRock, Blackstone, Goldman and Sachs, you name it, they want useless eaters, breeders and breathers gone. Ended. Taken out. Forever extinct!
But not gone before they can squeeze every last dime out of us, and our progeny and their progeny. We have these lunatics like Wyatt Earp going into space, we have more wealth made by billionaires during the planned pandemic than anyone in the mainstream could imagine. Faltering housing, fault lines in our infrastructure like Grand Canyons, food systems/farms drying up, no fuel for firefighting tankers, but plenty for Ships Ahoy, war games, endless container ships, endless DoD bullshit. Imagine, that is the Biden-Trump-Obama-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Reagan moment: a society, all the states, thousands of municipalities, on the ropes. All the huffing and puffing caused by capitalism.
Here is how it works — I just interviewed for two different jobs: housing case manager and family navigator. WOrking with housing insecure people in Oregon, in this rural county, in this place where the sea hits the sun and a shit-load of tourists, but no housing. All the STR’s (short term rentals) with dozens of folks partying in a three-day loves fest putting big time pressure on the communities septic and sewage and water and road systems. No housing, and alas, the job with the nonprofit is to work with people who qualify for Section 8 (HUD) housing, yet, well, no housing, waiting lists of three or more years, and a need growing and growing and growing. The other job is working with families/parents in the CPS system — child protective services. Helping them stay out of the cycle of losing children to foster care. Navigating.
We all need navigators in this cirrhosis society, daily –fined, triple taxed, repossessed, evicted, penalized, fees stacked up two stories, add-ons, tolls, service charges, tickets, court costs, and, well, so much more. Try getting through the medical system. Try getting through Social Security. Try getting a sty taken care of. Try getting the car serviced without being ripped off. Try just living in the PT Barnum world of everyone is a sucker, and everyone has a right to rip you off, buyer beware, too bad for granny losing her trailer to a scammer.
This is what those bastards want, and do I have to delineate who the bastards and pricks are?
- insurance companies
- anything military
- anything AI
- prison complex
- privatized everything
- the rule makers
- the rich
- the wannabe rich
- the super rich
- captains of industry
- captains of cartels
- auto industry
- fossil fuel companies
- chemical companies
- drug companies
- scientists without ethics
- wealth without work
These jobs, for me, 64 going on 65, are 18.00 an hour gigs, one is part-time, so no benefits, and, the other, well, 8 to 5, on my own, dealing with some really abused, desperate, end-of-their-rope people. But I am doing god’s work, so many say. Imagine that crock of shit.
I’m quickly penning this because I got a call from my daughter, who I have written about recently here and elsewhere. She is in Spokane, she has friends getting evicted or with rents going up. The fires around her city, in Washington State, tankers being grounded, and one big tanker out of commission for the Pacific Northwest. Imagine that, the Big Bold Credit Card Joe Biden, and his elites, the poison ivy leaguers, the bankers, the rich and those with family connections, bold people, lovers of capitalism, lovers of neoliberalism Imagine that, no food system security, no water delivery security, no medicine, no electricity security. It is a two bit Jerry Springer show on every level.
Hell, why not a postal employee? That too I have applied for, at, yes, $18.97 an hour. Working 50 hours some weeks, on call, flex, wherever needed. Yet, in the news, more small post offices in this county and in rural counties in Oregon, closing. Again, third world traveler, man.
I disagreed with many things my old man thought and did during 31 years in both AF and Army, enlisted and then officer. But, he was always for the USPS, always for free health care, always for free or near free higher education, always for unlimited and more in number libraries, and for systems in place to protect granny from being ripped off, by, well, hundreds of scammers. Throw the lock and key away for people like Trump and Biden, but, oh, when they become (sic) commander in chief, well, my father played that patriotic card. He was out and out against monopolies, and he came from German roots, farmers moved to South Dakota and Iowa. Turning in his grave, man: “Investigation shows scale of big food corporations’ market dominance and political power”
This is it, man, USA capitalism. No second, third, a dozen tankers in the ready? Oh, Bezos and Musk and Branson, all those space shots, all those container ships, all those military pieces of junk, all of it, that’s what we need, yet, our flimsy Trump-Biden world is littered with this shit. Trump, now in Florida, where the mayors of cities there want the USA to murder, bomb, invade, well, Cuba. Imagine that! To bit USA.
Yet, I’ll hear these shit-faces like Matt Taibbi or Glen Greenwald or any number of others citing Tucker Carlson as some sort of centerfold for freedom of the press. All the dead-end mainstream media they attack, sure, dead from the neck, but these fellows in the news and yammering on about who writes the news and parsing the news readers, they are again, Romans fiddling in their underwear while entire systems and fabrics of their own communities BURN.
I try to tell my daughter that, yes, I failed on the teaching perseverance front with her, and that she is wired differently, and that an empath is a very tough person to be. Every slight to humanity, or animals, she take personally. I did too, but I was a blazing journalist, educator and general muckrakers. For a 25 year old who despises the racist country, sees the disgusting ways of the rich, has to see one white man/white woman gain political power after another, she is not exactly in a great place to “compete tooth and nail, arm to arm, pistol against pistol, rip-off scheme after rip-off scheme” in this polluted society.
Now of course a large swath of people in USA laugh at these images below, and there is no hiding the fact that the Republican party is one sociopathic sick pukey party, and the democrats are major war mongers and capitalists. For how many generations have the white people laughed at civil rights movements, laughed at our Indian brothers and sisters being slaughtered, laughed at the slaves and children and great-great-great child of slaves. Business as usual!
World-renowned linguist and political dissident Noam Chomsky, in a public conversation we [Amy Goodman] had in April, we talked about climate change, nuclear weapons, North Korea, Iran, the war in Syria and the Trump administration’s threat to prosecute WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. We also talked about Noam Chomsky’s new book, Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth & Power. Hundreds of people packed into the First Parish Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for our public conversation.
Amy Goodman: I wanted to ask you about this comment that you made that the Republican Party, you said, is the most dangerous organization in world history. Can you explain?
Noam Chomsky: I also said that it’s an extremely outrageous statement. But the question is whether it’s true. I mean, has there ever been an organization in human history that is dedicated, with such commitment, to the destruction of organized human life on Earth? Not that I’m aware of. Is the Republican organization—I hesitate to call it a party—committed to that? Overwhelmingly. There isn’t even any question about it.
A couple of weeks ago —about a week into Trump’s term, the clock was moved again, to two-and-a-half minutes to midnight. That’s the closest it’s been since 1953. And that means extermination of the species is very much an—very much an open question. I don’t want to say it’s solely the impact of the Republican Party—obviously, that’s false—but they certainly are in the lead in openly advocating and working for destruction of the human species. I agree that’s a very outrageous statement. So I therefore simply suggest that you take a look at the facts and see if it has any merit or if it just should be bitterly condemned. That’s up to you. My view, the facts are pretty clear.
Listen to Hudson. This is the reality of this perverse economic system. Listen!
Hudson: You mentioned that financiers write the rules for their own benefit. These rules are called constitutions and bodies of law. Pro-financial laws have been the distinguishing feature of Western civilization since classical antiquity. That represented a sharp break from earlier Near Eastern practice. Greece and Rome didn’t have kings, at least after the kings were overthrown by Rome’s oligarchy early in its history. So the elites succeeded in blocking the tradition of Near Eastern monarchies cancelling personal debts and preventing an oligarchic financial class from emerging.
That is what makes Western civilization so different from everything that went before. Because without kings, without strong central government, or what the Greeks called tyrants, the oligarchy gained control, and managed democracy by a number of political tricks. Like the pro-boule in Athens, the Roman Senate could decide what the public assembly was allowed to discuss. Rome’s oligarchic constitution let everybody vote, but a rich landowner’s vote counted for hundreds of times more than the vote of most people. It was much like the United States today, where the donor class’s campaign contributions to U.S. politicians far overshadow what most voters want. The political rules in the United States reflect the donor class rather than democracy, just as in ancient Rome.
Jussi: Okay, then we take the other way around: What do neoclassical economists say the role of government is?
Hudson: To disappear and relinquish its power to the banks and the One Percent. The only role of government is to do what it did in Rome: to assassinate popular leaders who advocating cancelling the debts or redistributing the land. The role of the state for neoliberals is to protect the oligarchy from the people, to prevent real economic democracy and roll back everything that the 19th century was fighting for: creating a parliamentary democracy in order to free economies from the rentiers. You roll back reforms. Essentially they want neo-feudalism, so we don’t have to call it fascism. We can call it neo-feudalism. They want to put things the way they were back in the 12th century.
Jussi: Wow, it seems like it’s going backward, to say the least. So, what should the economy’s role be, according to classical economics?
Hudson: Well not only according to, but in reality. It should prevent rent seeking. The basic idea of an efficient economy is to minimize unearned income, because somebody has to pay this unearned income. If you have landlords charging whatever they want, if you have banks inflating the price of property – so that people have to pay in America up to 43 percent of their income for a government guaranteed mortgage – then you’re going to be priced out of the world market. So a good economy would prevent rent seeking. It would tax away the economic rent, which otherwise would be pledged to the bank, and it would regulate monopolies. Most important money and credit should be public utilities. So it shouldn’t be privatized.
The problem today is the rentier sectors: landlords, monopolists, and the oil and mining natural-resource rent recipients. All these sectors are backed by the banks. It’s the banks and the financial sector that are the mother of trusts.
If you keep money and credit in the public domain then credit will be extended for purposes that actually help promote prosperity, not that counteract it. Government money creation by deficit spending is spent into the economy for labor, for industry to build infrastructure, for productive purposes. Privatizing bank credit siphons off income from the economy. At issue is what’s going to be the priority: the host or the parasite? Governments should help the host, not the parasite.
I let my daughter know that there are billions of people who do not buy the USA, who despise the elites’ agendas, and millions in the USA who do not buy capitalism. We are in a Gulag, like what we might call a digital prison of the near future: we have always been in the prison of debt, and the point zero zero one percent are working for the one percent with the 19 percenters, Eichmann’s, big and small, destroying people, planet, life.
There is no planet “b/let it” be for us, but the Theil and Musk and Gates and Bezos types, there will be transhumanism, muck on the moon, and madness on mars. Their goal is living without useless eaters, breathers and breeders! Whitey on Mars!!
Lyrics — Whitey on the Moon
A rat done bit my sister Nell.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Her face and arms began to swell.
(and Whitey’s on the moon)
I can’t pay no doctor bill.
(but Whitey’s on the moon)
Ten years from now I’ll be payin’ still.
(while Whitey’s on the moon)
The man jus’ upped my rent las’ night.
(’cause Whitey’s on the moon)
No hot water, no toilets, no lights.
(but Whitey’s on the moon)
I wonder why he’s uppi’ me?
(’cause Whitey’s on the moon?)
I was already payin’ ‘im fifty a week.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Taxes takin’ my whole damn check,
Junkies makin’ me a nervous wreck,
The price of food is goin’ up,
An’ as if all that shit wasn’t enough
A rat done bit my sister Nell.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Her face an’ arm began to swell.
(but Whitey’s on the moon)
Was all that money I made las’ year
(for Whitey on the moon?)
How come there ain’t no money here?
(Hm! Whitey’s on the moon)
Y’know I jus’ ’bout had my fill
(of Whitey on the moon)
I think I’ll sen’ these doctor bills,
(to Whitey on the moon)
