uza2-zombienationWhat will it take to bring America to live according to its own self image?



^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda.

Toxic sludge for the mind.

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.

But are its murderers and undertakers.

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork.

And the murder of the planet

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.

The corporate media is their main line of defense.

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...

Is to break their media.

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.

Defeat their power to mislead.

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.

And they never stop.

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie.

So trust no one on the Big Media.

And beware of "entertainment shows".

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS.

The police state.

Or CBS Madam Secretary.

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing.

Telling us the US government is good.

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.

That the US establishment—which they represent...

has noble aims. Rubbish!

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices.

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.

Become a soldier in the battle of communications.

Which we must win.

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...

now it's a matter of survival!

  1. Poetic hyperbole. What is really ailing the world is human overpopulation. The expansion of the human spread over formerly uninhabited and pristine stretches of nature is destroying all the flora and fauna. It is remarkable (aside from the ancient and outdated ideas by the priesthood of the Catholic religion and the deluded Protestant abortion ban) that humans have not seen and still are not able to recognize the enormous threat of too many people.

    Not even pregnancy preventing means have made any inroad in the swelling number of humans that outnumber by now the many animal species that are slowly dying out because of the reductions in their habitat. Soon it must be decided by the people themselves if they want to drown in an over extended and overused environment or survive with a rational number of populations.

    The climate change surely is mostly dependent on human action but if there is less need for the many internal combustion engines befouling the air, the vast agricultural combines that misuse animals and chemicals to feed and poison the multitudes and the destruction of forests to build shelter for all, the earth may have a chance of survival too.

    Nature seems to be expected to correct overpopulation but horrid diseases, starvation and wars do not reduce the size of the human spread and all the efforts for saving nature and animals are actions after the fact that it is not what we do to end livable environments but instead that there are too many of us doing it. That seems to be a non-allowable heresy, but it is entirely up to humans to devise means for its own survival and that is by strongly reducing human populations probably by full birth control or more drastic methods. There is no alternative.

    1. Brilliant guy, this Gui! So spot-on. Everything I wrote here is simply drivel, and overpopulation is the only problem faced by mankind. He should really write articles on the subject, get a vasectomy, start passing out condoms and birth control pills on street corners, and quit wasting time on non-related subjects in comment sections.

  2. Evidently I made a point The ennui with developing technology and its effects on people is a theme already pursued by the culture-wary John Zerzan. As a kind of liberal laudator temporis actis . But one cannot stop humankind’s search for more scientific discoveries and technological improvement and if there was a smaller population in the world that would not destroy nature as it is. All that Hall bemoans would be on a much smaller scale and like smaller countries are doing easier to control. The scathing response misses my point entirely but is indicative of a certain elitism.

  3. Dang Gui…glad you’re getting some use out of that Thesaurus and your high school Latin Class. Didn’t know I was an elitist, but I’ll see if I can get some professional help soon. Many thanks for your enlightened insight and voracious verbiage. The only point you seem to have made is that folks fuck MUCH too carelessly. Seems I’ve heard that theory before, but let’s pretend I didn’t, and you get full credit. Congratulations. You should write a book.
