The time has come today
by Mike Meyer
We have hit another major phase change in the American collapse. In a nation state paralyzed by a failing economy and a failed political system we have the 21st century reality of great wealth, rising poverty, and simmering anger. The great wealth has been the result of two hundred years of a growing understanding of market forces in industrialized economies and the simmering anger has come from the fifty years of known structural failings of extreme capitalism. The foundations of both success and accelerating failure are the result of greed.
This has played out in America against repeated failure to break the bonds of racism, xenophobia, and bigotry. In short an incredibly bloody 19th century war was fought over this and the result nullified by exhaustion and the refusal to change by a significant part of the population. A second, less bloody, struggle in the 1960s also failed with massively organized intransigence by one of the two political parties. This was facilitated by the beginnings of denial of gained assets to all but the smallest percentage of owners. This was a cold blooded, completely immoral and illegal set of actions that were ignored by the capitalist owned media. The pattern was set.
Forty years of instigated wars, disasters, and irrational stock market manipulations vastly increased the wealth of the elite while confusion and propaganda effectively held the population in check. Massive media distortions tied the racist core to the support of the oligarchs by the continuous threat of theft by ‘others’. Denial of health care, education, and asset allocation was achieved also by the constant refrain that only the ‘others’ would benefit. Lack of education made that completely illogical campaign a success. Deny yourself so you can deny the ‘others’ healthcare.
The result is where we are today. A reviving global economy denied to all but a few Americans. And just to make sure, a mindless trade war that would create losses where it can least be afforded. Fortunately it will primarily destroy jobs for those who were tricked into supporting this evil but they won’t notice in fog of hate and fear.
Power is the denial of anything for anyone else while the chosen pocket the winnings. Life expectancy declines in the richest nation. Education produces life long poverty lessening the demand for education in the richest nation. Fools were elected to make this happen and to gorge on the loot with little regard for everyone else.
Finally the battles begin
We have come a long way from the violent struggles of the past. Social action is now the battlefield. The forces of denial and evil stupidly make laws to protect their stooges and maintain the oppression of everyone except the racist elite. Those laws work both ways and must be used. Harass the leaders of the illegitimate and racist government. Harass them where ever they are seen. Deny them the use of public places. Their supporters are opportunistic cowards and will avoid the discomfort.
This is already happening as no one applies for jobs in the cesspool of the White House. Their lies are powerless in the face of social denial. Their laughing announcements that they don’t care means we don’t have to care about them at all.
The owned media and the political co-conspirators are whining for surrender. Ignore them. They have been morally and ethically bankrupt for years.
Flash mobs for social denial will bring down the cowards playing this game. They will lose and we can avoid being killed. That is their hope to claim physical attack so they can send their armed goons. Deny the culprits social actions and then disappear. Simple and effective.
The time has come today to do what needs to be done to prevent worse from happening. And to save our planet from fools.
