“Wealth is accumulated by expropriating the labor power of the worker.  The secret to getting is rich is not to work hard, but to get a lot of other people to work hard for you.  That’s how you get rich.  Sexism and racism make that expropriation much easier.
Conservatives have a raging fear.  You can read about it in Aristotle.  You can read it in John Adams.  You can read it in Madison’s ‘Federalist Papers’ number 10.  All through history, they, they have a raging fear of class equality.  They constantly…they talk about it..they used to call it ‘leveling’.  You read it in Abigail Adams…these people who would want an ‘equal distribution’ of property, you see.  And that fear of equality extends to racial and gender equality, also.  Women and people of color do some of the dirtiest, toughest, lowest paying work in our society.  Greater equality for them means greater pay for them, which can only cut into profits.  Every dollar I have to give you in work is one less dollar for me in profits.  And conservative are the first to appreciate this.  Sometimes long before some of our own people.  There are very powerful economic incentives for keeping women in their place, for keeping women subordinate, for resisting the equalization of life chances by any disfranchised group.  It’s no accident that the most persistent attacks against feminism have come from fervent right-wing defenders of capitalism.” ~ Michael Parenti  [minute 41:50]

LIBERTARIANISM: Tyranny   “Here Libertarian means extreme advocate of total tyranny. …It means power ought to be given into the hands of private unaccountable tyrannies, even worse than state tyrannies, because there the public has some kind of role.  The corporate system, especially as its evolved in the 20th century is pure tyranny…completely unaccountable, you’re inside one of these institutions you take orders from above, you hand it down below. If you’re outside one of these institutions there’s nothing you can say.  Tyrannies do what they feel like.  They’re global in scale.”   [min 4:10]
“Markets are supposed to be systems in which informed consumers make rational choices. You know?  I’m sure every one of you has turned on a television set.  What do you see when you turn on a television set?  You see that there’s a huge industry, public relations industry which began in the United States and Britain, incidentally.  Huge industry which is designed to undermine markets.  Every add is an attempt to create an uninformed consumer who will make and irrational choice. Right?…huge effort on the part of the business world to undermine markets, but to keep the aspect that’s useful for profit and power…that means separating people from one another, focusing on individual choices, not working with your neighbor.”

Book: “Dreaming War: Blood for Oil and the Cheney-Bush Junta” ~ Gore Vidal
“Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution says that only congress can declare war.  The congress surrendered that great power to the president in 1950 and has never taken it back.  As ex. Senator Simpson, (he was one of my favorite clowns), said so cheerily on TV the other evening, ‘the people of the United States don’t declare war, the commander in chief does.’   So in great matters we are not guided by law, but by faith in the president, whose powerful Christian beliefs preach real faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

“In response to things not seen, the USA Patriot Act was rushed through congress 45 days after 911.  We’re expected to believe that  carefully crafted 342 pages were written in that short time.  Actually it reads like a continuation of Clinton’s post-Oklahoma City anti-terrorist act.  The Patriot Act makes it possible for government agents to break into anyone’s home when they’re away, conduct a search, and keep the citizen indefinitely from finding out that a warrant was issued or not.  They can oblige librarians to tell them what books anyone has withdrawn.  If the librarian refuses, he or she can be criminally charged.  They can also collect your credit reports and other sensitive information without judicial approval or the citizen’s consent.”

“Finally, all this unconstitutional activity need not have the slightest connection with terrorism.  Early last month the Justice Department leaked Patriot Act II, known as the Domestic Security Enhancement Act.  As of January 9, 2003, it has not yet gone to Congress, but it has certainly been leaked, from what I saw, (parts of it).  Here’s a provision, ‘If an American citizen, a born American citizen, has been accused of supporting an organization labeled as terrorist by the government, he can be deprived of this citizenship, even if he had no idea the organization had any link to terrorism.  Provision 2 is also made for more searches and wiretaps without warrant, as well as section 201, ‘Secret Arrests.’ …Anyway, that’s how you get rid of the Bill Of Rights in one big sweep.”

JFK, DISASTER PRESIDENT:  Vietnam War; Gore Vidal, Inequality; Revolution
“The founding fathers were not interested in democracy.  In fact, in a country of 3,250,000, which is what we were at the time of separation for England, ahh, only 700,000 people could vote…white males with property.  So it’s never been terribly, ahh ahh, democratic.  George Washington was a famous general who never won a battle.  He was our first millionaire; and he believed in property and the dignity of those who held it.  And they put together a constitution to protect property for all time…no nonsense about Democracy.”

“Harry Truman puts is military conscription of every man in the country …something that is practically unconstitutional…and unheard of in peace time.  And were the masters of the world.  I mean this is the greatest con trick ever done.  So Truman militarized the entire society…everything, everybody.  We became a national security state.  And that changed everything.  Men are in Europe forever on the march.  Stop godless and Atheists Communism from dominating the earth.  So it was pursuit of empire really.  And that’s the division in the country, between those who believe in it and think it’s a wonderful thing and those who regard it as a menace.”

“For much of my lifetime the American media has been tightly controlled by a handful of Corporations, whose main task since 1945 was to terrify Americans into believing that Russians were coming; and so we needed ever more missiles and nuclear warheads and submarines.  They have had decades to create a false reality for a citizenry largely uneducated by public schools…that teach conformity with an advanced degree, and consumerism.  What then is a true political party?  Well…one that has a base firmly in the interests of a class, be it workers or fox hunters.  Officially we have two parties which are in fact wings of a common party of property with two right wings.  It’s as if a prosperous nation, which we were, had been bitten by a werewolf, the werewolf of Empire…and so became rabid…and then gone mad before our eyes, to the horror of our friends, and of considerable anxiety even to foes.”  ~ Gore Vidal  [min 51:05 – 52:05]

911 World Trade Center Attack Commentary – Chris Matthews
“You’ve mentioned already, over 200 military strikes; I didn’t include the CIA…the Bay of Pigs and so on…against other countries without provocation.  When you start doing that arbitrarily around the world, people get very grumpy at you.  And sooner or later, I thought, well somebody, as it turned out, it was Saudi Arabia struck at us.  So I think we had that coming, to the extent that we had been provocative.”

“For reasons that I leave to the higher psychiatry, Junior (George W. Bush, POTUS 43) wanted a war in Iraq. (Questioner: Was it oil?)  Yes, of course it was.  And then certainly his boss Cheney did.  But at the same time, Junior is really pretty vague…I mean, you know he just wanted to go bang bang bang bang bang bang bang. (mimicking Bush here)  We gotta stand tall, ya know.  We can’t cut and run. Yeah, you know what I mean.  We’ve had bad presidents in the past, but we’ve never had a god damn fool.”
~ Gore Vidal   [min 56:45]
“They used this catastrophe as a.. or a coup d’état.  This is a well thought out coup d’état.  They already had contingency plans ready, in case of terrorism, violence whatever, which they had inherited from Clinton, who put together some terrible legislation after Timothy McVey blew up the (Murrah Federal) building in Oklahoma City.  It was really made for him (Bush) to call an emergency and pretend it was wartime.  You know, the war on terrorism is a metaphor, and terrorism is an abstract noun.  It’s like a war on dandruff.  There’s no such thing, you know.  It isn’t war!   But using the slogan, they got through the U.S.A. Patriot Act (2001), which removes many of our liberties.  Nobody made a sound when we lost Habeas Corpus, due process of law.  And suddenly Bush managed to get rid of it!  Where was a voice on television, aside from mine, that spoke out against this?  Where are all those noble jurists, those great lawyers, those lovers of liberty, where the hell were they?  They were nowhere!  Now we have a totalitarian government.  And the totalitarian government wants to watch everybody…total surveillance of everyone.  They listen to the telephone conversations.  They look at your credit cards.  They look where you travel.  We’re totally policed…which is contrary to everything in our Constitution!

US PATRIOT ACT: No Debate, Global War w/o End
“Could the tragedy of September 11 be setting into motion a set of events even more ominous than the attacks themselves?
After retaliating against the Al-Qaida network and the Taliban, the Bush Administration speaks of bringing justice to an Axis of Evil countries not involved in the 911 attacks.  All while Osama Ben Laden and company escaped.  Afghanistan has been bombed into near rubble.  Countless civilians have been killed. And millions of Afghans live in refugee camps.  Meanwhile the Middle East teeters on the brink of a major war, as innocent Israelis and Palestinians continue to be killed.  World leaders view U.S. military intervention with increasing alarm.  And international opinion indicates that the U.S. government is more hated than ever.”  [min 3:45 -4:45]
“On the domestic front Congress has passed a feeding frenzy of corporate welfare, pork measures and attacks on civil liberties as special interest stampede to profit from the current crisis.  For example the new U.S. Patriot Act authorizes police and intelligence agencies to spy on any American.  The Act was passed by Congress before it was even completely written…meaning of course that no one ever read it when it was passed.  Fearful of being viewed as unpatriotic, the Senate passed the Act with only one dissenting voice.
Compounding the absence of political debate, government officials have intimidated those in the public who’ve tried to raise questions.  Hence there’s been virtually no public debate.  In effect officialdom apparently believes the public should not be allowed to discuss these measures, to know what is really going on or to question government authority.  As a result the Washington unilaterally declares that the new terrorist war must be a global war without end.  With no clear up of objectives, no enemy to be found who is clearly existing, no specified geographical area, and no clear strategy….And since we are now all under government surveillance, apparently it could be any of us.
James Madison, the master builder of the U.S. Constitution noted in 1795, quote, ‘Of all the enemies of public liberty, war is perhaps the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops to the germ of every other.  War is the parent of armies.  From these proceed debt and taxes.  And armies, debt and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the dominion of the few.  No nation could preserve its freedom on the midst of continual warfare.’”   [min 4:55 – 7:05]
“Renowned author Gore Vidal rejects the blind ‘patriotism’ expected by government officials and the mainstream media, and investigates U.S. foreign policy throughout recent history, showing how it has contributed to the terrorist crisis. With his famous wit and insight, Vidal also demonstrates the ways in which the ‘War on Terrorism’ is being used to curtail civil liberties and shred the Bill of Rights.”

DEATH RATE:  WHITE MEN The Death Rate among white American men, aged 35-54, is increasing.  Since 1999, the Mortality Rate of 45-54 year olds increased markedly. ~ (Washington Post, NY Times and @guardian articles)
{Notes from the Thom Hartmann Radio Show 11-15:
The causes of the rise in early deaths were suicide, alcohol, prescription drugs, and illegal drugs (mostly heroin), not diseases.
High Fructose Corn Syrup consumption is upsetting fat and sugar metabolism.
In 1987, “Third Way” political strategist, Al From asked Governor Bill Clinton (D*AR) to join him and push through NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), promising to make him President.
The “social cause” of the pain that caused an increase in the death rate was probably the NAFTA trade agreement that exported good paying manufacturing jobs starting in 1999.  “Most Favored Nation” trade status with China exported more good paying jobs.
From the year 2000 to today (11-2015), the US has lost 60,000 factories (of 500 workers or more).  Most of the job losses are due to the passage of NAFTA and free trade with China.
The average manufacturing job (1999) would be worth $58,000 today.  Half a million white men were likely the victims of the manufacturing job losses.
NAFTA and free trade with China are forces of destruction for the white middle class. }

Corporatocracy is multinational corporations controlling government as “The Invisible 4th Branch.”  85% of stock is owned by the top 5%;
The 1% prey upon American blind-believers and clannish team jingoes.
{3 “Visible” Branches are: Executive/State Governor & U.S. President; Legislative/St. Legislatures & US Congress …House & Senate; Judicial/St. & US/Federal Courts back-stopped by 50 St. & 1 US/Fed Supreme Ct.};
“Edward Bernays, the founder of the modern propaganda industry, described the process:
Those who manipulate the unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government. We are governed, our minds molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested largely by men we have never heard of … in almost every act of our lives …we are dominated by …persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns…. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind.”
“A substantial majority in the US have been so overwhelmed by the consumer/celebrity culture that distracts from the real situation that they are now fearful of harboring a critical thought, let alone speaking critically about the surrender of democracy to the wealthy elite.”

Documentary Film about Psychopaths: “I AM FISHEAD”
“…we not only praise psychopaths …highest positions of power …they became our role models. Challenge your beliefs! (writers) …delved into the world of psychopaths and heroes, and revealed something crucial about us.”
Approximate Narration Notes:
(min 46:30)   “To blindly obey authority means be mindless.  Don’t do critical thinking.  Just do what you’re told.  And that links up …if parents say mind your own business.  Don’t get involved.  Don’t think too deeply about it.  Just do what I say.  That is one of the worst things that can happen to any society.  An unthinking society is a society that’s vulnerable to these psychopaths, because they say …I have the answer.  I have the way.  I have the money.  I have the power.  I have the status.  I can give you jobs.  All you have to do is …do it my way.”
Corporate Psychopaths, Politicians, Bankers, Business Leaders exist without a conscience.  Parts of the brain are colder.  They’re manipulative and possess a stunning lack of empathy.  They look at other people as mere objects.  They’re egotistical, self-centered, manipulating others for their own ends.  You see the mask.
They are 1% of the general population.  (Some say there are 1.5 psychopaths and 2.5 sociopaths per 100 people in the general population.) Psychopaths have greater education and talk the language of their victims. Corporate Psychopaths, (Year 2000) the richest 1% own 40% of global assets.  The richest 10% own 85% of global assets, while the economic bottom half own barely 1% of global assets.  Psychopaths are fearless.  The “Game of Monopoly” demonstrates the ability to concentrate wealth.
In study of corporate psychopaths involving 203 high level executives, it was revealed that that the psychopaths among them had all the qualities that “should” doom them to failure.  They mimic high performing individuals, recognize them as rivals, and knock them off.
An unthinking society is vulnerable to psychopaths.  Psychopaths ask people to do what they say for the illusion of security.  Many organizations and systems themselves are sociopathic.  Money and the desire for money simply begets more desire …a very primitive state of desire to see it as limitless.  Psychologically …those limits become removed.
(To change the system) Give up on the pursuit of happiness in the sense that happiness is something you get from possessing “more.”  Consumer culture rests on dissatisfaction.  No one who is doing evil ever thinks of it as evil.  People get programmed not to look at evil and not to get involved.  We’re programmed to be egocentric.  The train-of-thought being …it’s so big, if it’s going down, there’s nothing we can do but take pleasures along the way.
We’re influenced by people around us.  We’re affected by people who are 2 or 3 degrees removed from us …affected by friends of friends of friends in human social networks.  People are influenced as though we are all connected.
Humans are not as capable of free will as previously thought.  The task in the world is to seek power for other people.  Moral behavior tends to ripple out and spread back towards us.  Most ordinary people are good, passive, and tend to look side-to-side.
“The advantage of being in a society is that when 5-6% of the people become aware of a danger …nearly everyone becomes aware.  What Will You Do?”

“My doctorate is in executive leadership coaching.  As such, I’ve been studying adult psychopathology among leaders.  In a study of anti-social personality disorder, (known vernacularly as Sociopathy), they compared high finance execs in London with inmates in a hospital for the so-called “criminally insane.”  What they found was that the inmates and the execs scored similarly on anti-social scales.  The execs, they concluded, were simply more successful sociopaths.”

Poor Countries also pay $600 Billion in debt service to rich countries on loans that have already been paid off many times over;
Poor countries lose $500 Billion per year through trade rules that favor Rich Countries to access resources and cheap Labor;
That totals to about $2 Billion a year that flows from the poorest countries to the richest

About greenenvscithr

This American, a socially concerned blogger, is a conservationist and an anti-desertification advocate. Cultures with paralyzed memories expand deserts. These cause and effect traits define human impact in the geologic warming period that is marked by population explosion, technological advancement and desertification of vast tracts of arable land. As a tree-hugger, it’s easy to look around the world at deforestation which dries climates, decreases surface water, but increases soil erosion and global warming …evaluating them as slow motion end-times behaviors. It should also be noted that progressive behavioral change holds the potential to stride toward sustainability, and coexistence on a blue-green planet …with others who look, think, talk, or act differently. (Tribalism + Nationalism + Profit-Charter = Corp’s War + Human Carnage + Environmental Disaster) If regard for a living environment reached a status equal to that fomented by deities, a bond uniting humanity across cultural and national borders could really exist. The human behavior instruction manual might offer a harmonic concrete experience instead of the confusion in an 1,189 chapter tyrant's windsock that requires interpreters with different intentions to construct misunderstandings about both physical and virtual worlds. Any deity that demands intellectual hypocrisy to absorb what is abstract, and funnels prey to the misguidance that mandates blind-belief, silence and complicity (while spreading clinical paranoid schizophrenia) will just lead people where psychopaths designate. Most religions are better described as "Maleligions" …as their traditions and laws are male contrived and dominated hierarchies. They generally concentrate on controlling women for the convenience of men, and programming both for the advantage of tyrants. A dictator wants blind-believers with a testosterone disadvantage and compliant cracker ovens to repopulate followers, thus erasing fatal mistakes in his tyrannical judgment. Creating “emotional deserts” raft with mental vortexes, (in which to become psychologically lost), leads stealthily to the cultural dissonance and distraction that produces the real ones, “rock paved deserts.” The human race is minimally a gaggle of tribes of desert-makers, except for a few that live sustainably. Freed from the bondage of a hereafter (that promises a reunion with familiar like minded people and an aura of mystery), progress and sustainability (unencumbered by cultural apathy and a parched pre-destiny) could exist. But religions general heading is in the opposite direction… suppressing women, sporting flat earth firewalls and celebrating dark-age “dolthood” as it spills human brain power into an everlasting insurance policy. Generally speaking, mysterious religions provide segues between human ignorance and corrupt psychopaths in an overall unconscious effort to leave no planet worth inhabiting. 3,018 ac edited 09-27-14
