America

HELP ENLIGHTEN YOUR FELLOWS. BE SURE TO PASS THIS ON. SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON IT.
The Great War (WW1) left deep scars on the European psyche, but not deep enough to prevent a more ferocious return of the scourge in 1939, this one costing 55 million instead of a mere 35 million lives.

In America they build flying war robots, but you can’t drink the water. America is where the empire keeps its billionaires and bombs.

Giant wars left Europe a mess many years ago, so America rose to the top. Now it’s where many rich and powerful influencers centralize their operations. America is the cattle prod used to compel the world to march along with the interests of western aristocrats. Governments which comply are rewarded with military “protection”, while noncompliant governments are sanctioned and bombed. The Mafia does this also.

Americans are kept poor by the aristocracy, because money equals power and power is relative. The poorer ordinary Americans are kept, the more powerful the aristocrats are. Agencies like the FBI were invented so that there will be someone to help shoot and kill ordinary Americans if they ever decide to start eating the aristocrats for food.

It is very important that the aristocrats be able to control America, because they need to be able to protect their assets while directing its military firepower. This means keeping ordinary Americans poor and politically impotent while conducting trillion-dollar military operations overseas, which is a hard sell. The aristocrats engage that hard sell on a daily basis using the mass media corporations which they own. And they do so successfully.

 Americans are surrounded by screens which promote capitalism and consumerism for eight-minute stretches between commercial breaks promoting capitalism and consumerism. If you ever get a bit uncomfortable about the expensive planes dropping expensive bombs on people who make less money in their lifetimes than the military explosives used to kill them, just turn on any of the screens you own and there will be a talking head ready to explain to you why you’re just imagining silly things in that ditzy little head of yours. Relax. Don’t worry. Uncle Sam has got everything under control. Uncle Sam loves you. Uncle Sam knows what’s best.

America is too important to be left in the hands of the Americans. If you ever wonder why America is behaving in a strange way, that is always the explanation: America is too important to be left in the hands of the Americans. The intelligence agencies, military firepower and massive economic influence that is wielded by anyone who exerts control over the US government are such valuable tools that there’s no limit to the horrible things that aristocratic manipulators will do to secure it. This includes pummeling ordinary Americans with mass media psyops day in and day out to manufacture their consent for agendas which do not benefit them. While this is an effective way to control how Americans think and vote, it also makes them more than a little crazy.

This is why there is an opiate epidemic in America. This is why white supremacy is becoming more brazen. This is why every few weeks an American grabs a gun and kills as many of his countrymen as possible. Because of their nation’s strategic significance, Americans are the most aggressively propagandized people in the tight alliance of nations that comprises the western empire. But there’s only so far you can twist a mind away from truth before it snaps. There’s only so much you can do to convince a populace that mass murder is perfectly fine overseas before someone gets the idea that it’s perfectly fine at home, too.

Americans are in their nature as compassionate and generous a people as you will ever meet anywhere else on earth; they’ve just got manipulative sociopaths elbows-deep in their minds conducting psyops all the time, and it makes them a bit weird. But their good-naturedness is evident in the fact that even the propaganda used to manipulate them into consenting to depraved war agendas is always meant to exploit their caring and compassion: it’s always about saving children from a monstrous dictator, or spreading freedom and democracy. Americans are blasted in the face with so many hero narratives from Hollywood and television that this makes perfect sense to them, and of course they want their military to do something heroic and save those poor kids. Even the sick things they consent to are rooted in basic good intentions. America is a country full of decent people with propaganda boxes around their brains.

Propaganda is what makes America America. Without the endless aristocratic influence campaigns convincing Americans that economic injustice is economic justice, that war is humanitarian, that insanity is sanity, and that their government is acting with their best interests at heart, the nation would be unrecognizable. America is a psyop wearing a cowboy hat.

Vast, sprawling aristocratic kingdoms have been built upon the manipulation of the American psyche. If those brain boxes ever get shucked off, those kingdoms will necessarily collapse, and a new world will emerge. Because those brain boxes are made of lies and manipulation, the new world which emerges will necessarily be better and healthier. Health and harmony are born of truth.

It is not okay that the aristocracy keeps warping and brutalizing the American psyche. It is not okay that they use their power and influence to advance inequality and war. Americans need only to turn around and face their manipulators and tormenters for this all to end. Once you’ve seen the puppeteer, the puppet show is ruined.

Keep pointing at those strings, oh clear-eyed rebels. This fight is very winnable. The spells holding the deception together can be broken. America belongs in the hands of the Americans. Americans can take America.

American Exceptionalism is a religion, albeit a very toxic religion.

Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found

In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.

4 thoughts on “America

  1. It may be a silly point, but I object to the expression aristocrats for the money barons. Aristocrat means literally reign by the best and frankly even though aristocrats in Europe, Asia and Africa were not always very civilized, they all shared in a form of nobility obliges, which is entirely absent in the wealthy and the powerful of today. They feel no responsibility for their behavior, nor ever to form a sort of honor bound responsibility towards each other. Though superficial it gave rise in the European Middle-ages to a high from of culture and in China and Japan to an extremely refined form of art. That it went at the cost of the common humans and may have impoverished the French to revolution is a second point, but the dismal vulgarity we encounter today amongst the so-called elites smacks more of the dog pound than of a small segment that could afford superior signs of behavior and art. Unfortunately their example percolates downward with the result that the whole society is a witches brew of dog eats dog and to hell with the hindmost.

  3. Moreover, Ms Johnstone is disingenuous when she writes that Americans are very compassionate and generous people.

    Sure, the Germans in the 1930’s were not bad people either, they were generous and compassionate (except of course to Jews).

    In fact, Germans were very kind to their animals, they were nature lovers and far kinder to both than they were to the Slavic and Semitic peoples.

    It is all in how the public is indoctrinated and which are worse in kind of human characteristics that were and are deliberately inbred and encouraged.

    Like in Germany during the 1930’s the US population is taught to regard the States as a beleaguered nation, one that is well intentioned (in both Germany and the US of course in contrast to the Russian hordes).

    And that is the danger point as explained in a superb tract in the 1932 “Little Man, What Now?” by the German author Hans Fallada. Written in the last days before Hitler it shows how fertile the ground is for totalitarianism and explains how easily superficial thinking can fall into its clutches.

  4. However, the conspiracy is not amongst the people., the conspiracy is between the propaganda department of the government, Hollywood and the diverse media. The intense conditioning of public opinion is not only absurd but harmful. Distorted facts and outright untruths are bandied about as if these are real, supported by obscure and undefinable sources. The whole unconscionable fabric of confabulation is such that it purposefully does not allow for any reasoning or objective and calm observation. The basic ingredient which makes the propaganda so effective and poisonous is the emotional content which is treated as if it is the chief ingredient of the so-called news. Instead of simply insightful, the news content is couched in an aggressively personalized way as if the announcer / commentator is personally involved in what (s)he lies about. Truth does not need additional emotional ornamentation, it strikes directly at the heart of the matter and that is where the television media especially stands out as a harbinger of calamities inducing fear and uncertainty and unnecessary details to arouse the ‘correct’ mood in the un-suspecting viewer. For that matter every movie, every television drama is geared to strengthen a wrong and contrary to intelligence response. Recidivist emotions and stale bourgeois commandments are the guidelines along which every script struggles along, no wonder that there is such confusion about social adjustments to the modern age and that the dispute about human rights is riddled with contradictions. Thorough confusion makes for obedient mental slaves and the chief intent of media and entertainment propaganda is to turn the country back to worn-out shibboleths and unworkable prejudices that remain useful for control. We live in very dangerous times.
