U.S. Freedom Dies Forever as Republicans and Democrats Weaponize Reagan's Biggest Big Lie into Our One "Self-Evident" National Truth
Meanwhile Reality Compels Another Dispatches Format Change
NO, GOOD PEOPLE, ELECTIONS cannot restore humanitarian governance to the United States.
Not now. Not ever -- not as long as our candidates are all chosen by our Capitalist overlords.
Yes, our most recent betrayal by the Democratic (sic) Party is obviously intended to help the Republicans by minimizing voter turnout next month. It's other purpose is tightening the already deadly ChristoNazi stranglehold on the national judiciary.
Now the only truly motivated voters will be the zealots themselves, the ChristoNazis and their secret Democratic [sic] allies, especially the forcible disarmament fanatics who want to render us defenseless in the face of the wildly escalating ChristoNazi threat.
In hideous truth, they're birds of a (proverbial) feather. The two groups are bound together by their hatreds.
The forcible disarmament cult is as much a hate group as any KuKluxKlavern -- and I have witnessed this firsthand. They despise all legal firearms owners with the same hurl-a-brick-through-your-window intensity the ChristoNazis aim at women and people of color.
But we real Leftists are the only ones they're reducing to compulsory pacifism and mandatory victimhood. As it is already, no one in the state of Washington can purchase a firearm -- any firearm -- without government approval.
And now -- with the ChristoNazi takeover already emerging as the most apocalyptic horror our species has ever contrived -- the forcible disarmament fanatics see their greatest opportunity. Once they win -- and it is obvious they're winning everywhere -- government at every level will be able to thoroughly investigate anyone who so much as inquires about firearms ownership.
Which means, in the ChristoNazi Fourth Reich as the Original Nazi Third Reich, soon it's only the Nazis who will be allowed guns.
All of this is predictable -- especially by anyone who knows history well enough to know that if there is any "arc of the moral universe," it most assuredly bends not toward toward justice but to ever-intensifying tyranny.
Obviously our ChristoNazi rulers want all of us except their own storm-troopers disarmed and thereby reduced to utter defenselessness, and just as obviously they are (again) using their Democratic (sic) puppets to make that happen. `
Meanwhile most of the rest of the population -- terrified by the fast approach of the which-side-are-you-on reality that defines revolution and civil war -- is in full retreat. They are cravenly flinging away their arms in the desperate hope their pathetic defenselessness will magically move our merciless conquerors to show them mercy.
Moron Nation multiplying mindlessness.
But these are mere symptoms of the malignancy that is destroying us.
The real reason our elections are meaningless is that President Reagan's most outrageous Big Lie -- that government is the source of all our problems -- has become the nation's sole defining "self-evident" truth.
Indeed it has suppressed and replaced all those other "self-evident" truths cited by Thomas Jefferson as he wrote the Declaration of Independence.
Our final subjugation -- and there were many such episodes beforehand -- began with the murder of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy on 22 November 1963. It was then locked in place by an additional 11 years of governmemt-enabled murders.
In other words, Lyndon Banes Johnson, Richard Milhous Nixon, Gerald Ford, James Earl Carter, Reagan, George Bush I, William Jefferson Clinton, George Bush II and Barack Obama are every bit as guilty as Donald Trump himself in the ChristoNazification of the United States.
But given the true though hitherto-concealed purpose of the so-called "American Revolution" -- a coup by slave-owners and their financiers in fear of British efforts to outlaw slavery -- it is doubtful any other outcome was possible.
As to its presidential perpe-traitors, they were of course "just following orders" -- specifically the commands of the bribemasters who own them.
Here again we see how badness begets badness, whether one labels its momentum "cause-and-effect," as I do, or calls it by its popular name, "bad karma."
That's why a global credo literally founded on the notion all femaleness is evil -- i.e., patriarchy -- can only beget the ultimate evil of our own self-destruction.
Just as a nation founded by slave owners and ever afterward owned by their descendants can only become a nation of slaves.
Or just as the computer -- originally designed by IBM to grant the German Nazis maximum efficiency mass murder -- now fulfills its inherent momentum by granting our masters their first truly omnipotent overseer. Such is the total-surveillance mechanism against which we the people are eternally defenseless.
In all such examples, the lesson is the same: in the ultimate sense, evil can only beget evil.
Or as Audrey Lorde so aptly put it, "the master's tools will never dismantle the master's house. They may allow us temporarily to beat him at his own game, but they will never enable us to bring about genuine change. And this fact is only threatening to those...who still define the master's house as their only source of support."
But we already know that even if we dare not say it aloud. We live it every day. We can no longer deny that what we were falsely conditioned to believe was "our" government has instead reduced us to but another of the world's innumerable Conquered Peoples.
Obviously, if we are to beat back the horrors of ChristoNazi governance, we must have a government that is truly our own.
Dual power, anyone? (Hint: had Occupy gone forward, expanding to include more minorities and thereby minimizing its seduction by anarchists, it might have begun providing us the requisite foundation.)
MY PREVIOUS REVISIONS of Dispatches were intended to make it especially useful to those of us whose lives are sufficiently consumed by the demands of art and survival we keep abreast of current events more by reading weekly summaries rather than daily viewing or reading.
But those efforts fizzled.
And, in retrospect, one of the slap-myself-in-the-forehead reasons for their befizzlement is that those of us who are already living the lives of conquered people surely do not need a long litany of news-item reminders of the ever-more-merciless sadism of our conquerors.
Hence my apology. Hence too my reversion to what I trust is a more attractive format: still weekly, but with only a handful -- say no more than five -- of the week's defining news reports. Some accompanying commentary, of course. My photographs as relevant.
But also a far more determined search for a few heartening reports too.
And something new: excerpts from the mental visions that flare from the edges of my mind whenever I contemplate our apocalyptic reality.
ESPECIALLY AS A STUDENT of history, I find the notion of art as prophecy set forth by Carl Jung and underscored by Marshall McLuhan to be profoundly reassuring.
For just as the horrors of the 20th Century were foretold by Edvard Munch, I think in the music associated with the resurrection of Goddess-centered paganism -- enchanting in its own right -- is also sending us two messages.
One of these messages is that the Goddess is with us despite the 6,000 years of unspeakable misogynistic savagery with which the patriarchs repeatedly try -- as they are again trying now -- to destroy her, usually with maximum malice. (Think of the misogyny that boiled over so often -- and so sadistically -- during the Kavanaugh hearings.)
But the patriarchs are (again) learning they cannot murder the Goddess without killing nearly all females and many males as well. Archaeology tells us she has always been with us -- and perhaps with our Neanderthal ancestors as well. I believe she will be with us for as long as our species survives, never more distant than the edges of our minds, especially amongst those of us, female and male alike, whose consciousness and conscience have not been poisoned by Abrahamic religion or other such patriarchal toxins.
Indeed she is like an indescribably exquisite flower patiently awaiting the sunlight of our recognition, after which she bursts into bloom, first for the witches and bards who are her natural disciples, then presumably for all the rest of us who have not been so disabled by patriarchy we can at the very least sense her inestimable value as a revolutionary symbol of our Motherland, our Mother Earth, she whom we must either successfully defend lest we be reduced to extinction.
It strikes me now -- and I have been studying our renaissance of folk music and folklore since 1959 -- this has gone far beyond the Jung/McLuhan parameters of prophecy into overt philosophical and ritual preparation for a post-apocalyptic future. Picture a midnight ritual outdoors on some wild hilltop with either of the two previously linked songs as two thirds of a rite of invocation, concluded perhaps by this.
Then the ritual itself, danced in the ecstasy of intensified lunar consciousness amidst the swirling fragrance of the needfire smoke, seasoned alder (the sacred name-tree of the god Bran) at this Pacific Northwest latitude, oak or ash or sweetgrass elsewhere. Here is but a glimpse of how that post-apocalyptic world might look and feel in its peaceful and contemplative moments.
Perhaps, in a world liberated from fossil-fuel fascism -- and thus finally and at long last truly beyond the reptilian age -- our descendants will again ride the steppe and the plains of elsewhere. And again, as in Scythian times, perhaps swift bands of horse-archers, most of them women, will protect us from all foes, singing to pass the time as they ride to and from their destinations.
(Yeah I know; at some point -- except for the reality of the songs -- this last section becomes speculative fiction.)
Nevertheless...So Mote It Be.
