Why The Left Cannot Be Allowed Control
“I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. It is an oncoming train.” Old street saying
We have only three options. One option is to allow the radical left to gain control not only in the United States but the entire Western world which is what is actually at stake. While it has been the general rule that most civilizations have placed a greater emphasis on the whole society Western civilization places more emphasis on the individual. Individuals have more freedom of self determination and actions than found in most societies. You as an individual are responsible to and for yourself and your decisions and actions. Of course you also have responsibilities to your immediate family and friends and to your society. No man or woman is an island. You can go out and stand alone but you won’t stand very long. For decent, civilized humans life should not be a hooray for me and to hell with you free for all. If that is your attitude you have no reason to complain when you get the shaft. While promoting the individual Western civilization does not dismiss or ignore the needs of the whole society, or humanity as a whole, or as some say the greater good. It acknowledges families, tribes, clans, religions, nations, races, cultures etc., etc. and realizes the larger unit is a composite of the individual units which is made up of individuals. It is the structural pyramid that has been the basis for all organized civilizations and progress, regardless if totalitarian, democratic, feudal, capitalist or socialist since humans began their ascent. One of Western civilization’s tenants is the whole is greater than the sum of its parts in this case: individuals, families, tribes, clans, businesses, religions and such combined multiply the value of their contributions exponentially. Events on the road to what we accept as civilization have not always been smooth and often wrongs have been done, mistakes made, terrible atrocities committed.
At one time the Democrat Party in the US represented the average working class person and stood for progress. That is no longer so as they now represent the radical left and the radical left represents anarchy. Anarchy represents chaos and violence and chaos and violence precedes collapse and collapse is social suicide. And, as well as suicide for society it is suicide for large numbers of individual people caught up in the chaos and violence. And since suicide is not what most people relish committing and as social suicide (collapse) is predictable by observing society and has foreseeable consequences and if preventable and ignored that would make it murder. The radical left has gained control of the Democrat Party and is purposely pushing for collapse which is no less than premeditated murder. Their leaders know what they are doing while the majority of supporters are mindless and do not have the ability to critically think. They are literally an army of zombies. We don’t look upon them that way because we have been programmed to think of zombies as decaying corpses. Their bodies aren’t dead their brains are. They live in a fantasy world of emotional fairy-tale imaginations and impossible visions. They have what are known as pipe dreams whether they smoke dope or not. They are perpetual adolescences and have not matured. They are the most pampered and spoiled generation in history and have very little understanding of reality or history. The option of them gaining control of society is social suicide.. Suicide is NOT an option, at least for the sane when other viable, albeit possibly some unpleasant, options exist. Humanity is flawed and I am almost convinced if given a choice between two disasters humanity would choose both. The radical left wants to throw the baby out with the bathwater to use an old saying. They have the pipe dream of after the collapse of a Phoenix, a utopia, arising from the ashes and there will be “peace and good, brotherhood, crystal blue persuasion” as the song goes.. The Democrat Party controlled by the radical left has literally become mentally deranged. Their obsession with President Trump has led them to one absurd outrageous act after another. They have totally abandoned the actual reason for their existence which is the management and running of the country. The goal of the radical left is to collapse the United States economically and bring about widespread violence which will break up the nation and eventually lead to a utopian communist type dictatorship, or so they fantasize.
In the event of a collapse the possibility of the UN sending in peacekeepers is very real and it is not out of the realm of the left, given their mental state, actively seeking and working towards a collapse thinking it will hurry their dream on. The idea of a global society has been around for a long time. It is evident in many religions including Christianity. After the war many world leaders began looking towards a global order. The UN by nature is globalist and has been staffed and infiltrated by hyper globalists. This is to be expected because it is obviously a globalist organization given its’ name. The UN has the goal of a one world government with itself as the governing body and the West is a major “fly in the ointment.” There are two other flies in the ointment-China and Russia- but the US would be the easiest to collapse as the freedom to behave badly and undermine the state is greatest in the US, and is even encouraged and actively pursued by the liberal left. The infiltration of the government and educational systems was easier in the US because of the loose control allowing organizations such as the ACLU and others to misuse human emotions and hide behind the guise of human and civil rights causes and agitate the immature, those with lower intelligence, the mentally less stable and the weak-minded to create disorder and undermine safety, security and stability. These are the ones that vote emotionally and have been indoctrinated by the liberals. Once the US falls its’ resources and global tentacles could be used to weaken and topple the other two. Its resources would consist of not only its own but the resources of numerous other nations that are Western aligned. A major driving force behind this goal is George Soros and his fascist minded minions and “open society” organizations. They give strong lip service to democracy, social justice, equality and a long list of noble sounding but to them hollow words that because of their traditional meanings are hypnotic to the weak-minded and indoctrinated. If you look at the open society organizations and other NGOs (Non-government organizations) Soros founded and/or funds you will see they all advocate stances that create conditions that will bring about decline and anarchy. I have read only one book by him (The Bubble of American Supremacy) and must say I agree with much of what he said. I have a hard time trying to overlay his words in that book as being the same person when looking at his actions and goals in reality. It is a good image to hide his true motives behind. He is anti American and has the goal of destroying the United States. He is a globalist and would be happy with UN rule. He was “officially” introduced to the American people by Hillary Clinton in gushing terms which tells you all you need to know. That would be like introducing Jeffery Epstein to your preteen daughter. I will mention Soros several times as these Essays progress. (I am now reading another by him: The Age of Fallibility. It makes his hidden motives plain for those that can read between and behind the lines.)
The Democrats are being aided by the “deep state”. Actually used by the deep state is more accurate but the reverse is also a reality. The deep state is being used by the Democrats who are being used by George Soros. Much like a drug dealer and a prostitute use each other. Each has something the other wants but in sordid affairs under sleazy circumstances things never end well. Many, especially many liberals, deny the existence of a deep state as an imaginary figment of the right and a conspiracy theory. The deep state consists of the bureaucrats and various agencies that make up the machinery of government. Michael Parenti in his book Against Empire discussed the issue in chapter 8, Democratic Governance vs the State:
“We might best think of the American polity as a dual system. First, there are the elections, political personalities, public pronouncements, image engineering, and that handful of visible issues that bestir public officials and win passing attention in the media. This system is taught in the schools, dissected by academics and gossiped about by news pundits.
“Then there is the system of coercive state power that is used to protect the dominant structure of the political economy, specifically, the domestic and international interests of finance capital. This system is not taught in the schools nor discussed in the press. Mainstream media commentators seem never to have heard of it. . . .
“This dual system roughly reflects the differences between government and state. The government deals with visible officeholders, pressure group politics, special interests, and popular demands. It provides the cloak of representative government and whatever substance of democratic rule that has been won through generations of mass struggle.
“The state has little if anything to do with popular rule or the creation of public policy. It is the ultimate coercive instrument of class power.”
The Deep State consists of the alphabet security agencies; NSA, CIA, FBI, DHS, etc. and other agencies like NASA and HUD. It also consists of the bureaucrats that exist as the bulk of employees in Washington D.C. and all government agencies. These are the people that actually keep the government running. The intelligence agencies, the agencies over various sectors such as labor, transportation, space, housing, agriculture, security, the secretaries, assistant secretaries and undersecretaries, secretaries to the secretaries and undersecretaries, the supervisors, assistant supervisors, the clerks and so forth. They exist in all governments. In both ours and in international nations. They exist on a local level in your towns and cities. They are not elected they are employees that spend an entire careers there just as non government employees as mechanics, factory workers, cooks, law enforcement, firemen/women, paramedics, drivers etc., etc., do in the private sector of the general population. The politicians are elected and come and go with elections but these people stay for decades and retire from government service. These people have a great deal of knowledge about the machinery and the nuts and bolts of government and are often relied upon for input from the politicians. They also have a great deal of power. The reality is they are indispensable. Many can be likened to Corporal Radar O’Reilly of the Mash television series. They are.suppose to be nonpolitical but it was openly obvious the ones testifying at the Trump Impeachment hearings had political axes to grind. Many in the deep state feel that Trump has not paid the proper attention to them and their advice and feel he does not know what he is doing. He is not a politician and is unconventional in his governing so they feel somewhat threatened by him. Often some get their feelings hurt which was plainly exhibited by some at the first few Trump impeachment hearings. Some were appointed by the present administration and some are Obama administration holdover appointees and were or will be let go by President Trump, as all previous administration appointees usually are by the new “sheriff in town,” so they naturally have a negative attitude towards him. The Democrats have pandered to that and enlisted the assistance of the deep state in trying to oust him. The witnesses and whistle-blowers are from the ranks of these people. I can see the need for a deep state as the government would not run without them. They are intelligent and knowledgeable and I am quite shocked they have hitched their wagon to a cause that will mean collapse if it is implemented. Except for a very few the majority won’t fare all that well in a collapse. They feel they are safe from the new regime but they will be on thin ice as they are either easily manipulated or are untrustworthy. Either makes them a liability.
In the Wall Street Journal of Dec. 21-22, 2019 there was an excellent article by Francis Fukuyama on the deep state: ‘American Liberty Depends on the ‘Deep State.’ I agree the deep state is necessary but should be nonpartisan. Being partisan compromises one’s perspective. Below are few sentences from it. A good read if you can find it.
“For years, conservatives have been railing against the growth of the “administrative state,” a mass of faceless and unaccountable bureaucrats allegedly holding tyrannical power over ordinary citizens.”
“But American constitutional government depends on the existence of a professional, expert, nonpartisan civil service. Hard, as it is to imagine in this moment of extreme partisan polarization, government cannot function without public servants whose primary loyalty is not to the political boss who appointed them, but to the Constitution and to a higher sense of the public interest.”
The United States represents the major power of Western civilization which to the left is why it has to be destroyed and so much money and effort has gone into the goal. Once gone the rest of the Western world could almost be conquered with a series of phone calls. While Western civilization is imperfect it is the best civilization humanity has come up with to date. It has raised more humans out of poverty and ignorance than any other civilization. It has given more opportunity to a larger portion of the population regardless of sex or race or culture. It has also given more social justice to a more diverse and larger percentage of people than any civilization in the past. The left with their outrageous promises of everything for everybody for free is going to break the bank. What is happening now reminds me of one of Aesop’s Fables about the goose that laid golden eggs. It goes as follows:
“The Æsop for Children
“The Goose & the Golden Egg
“There was once a Countryman who possessed the most wonderful Goose you can imagine, for every day when he visited the nest, the Goose had laid a beautiful, glittering, golden egg.
“The Countryman took the eggs to market and soon began to get rich. But it was not long before he grew impatient with the Goose because she gave him only a single golden egg a day. He was not getting rich fast enough.
“Then one day, after he had finished counting his money, the idea came to him that he could get all the golden eggs at once by killing the Goose and cutting it open. But when the deed was done, not a single golden egg did he find, and his precious Goose was dead.”
The left probably won’t get it. Rational thinking and reasoning are not their strong points.
The United States is under assault by foreign forces that want to destroy it. They are being aided and abetted by “fifth columnists” within the borders of the United States. These fifth columnists have taken over the Democrats and they are undermining the system with lies, hatred and deceit. The label of fifth columnist accurately applies. The term fifth columnist is from the Spanish Civil War and is explained by the Encyclopedia Britannica as follows:
“Fifth column, clandestine group or faction of subversive agents who attempt to undermine a nation’s solidarity by any means at their disposal. The term is conventionally credited to Emilio Mola Vidal, a Nationalist general during the Spanish Civil War (1936–39). As four of his army columns moved on Madrid, the general referred to his militant supporters within the capital as his “fifth column,” intent on undermining the loyalist government from within.
“A cardinal technique of the fifth column is the infiltration of sympathizers into the entire fabric of the nation under attack and, particularly, into positions of policy decision and national defense. From such key posts, fifth-column activists exploit the fears of a people by spreading rumours and misinformation, as well as by employing the more standard techniques of espionage and sabotage.”
By the definition you can see the tactics of the Democrats, the left, and Soros. Notice the definition said “by any means at their disposal.” There have been protests where the protestors had signs reading “BAM” which stands for “By Any Means.” There have been numerous guests on multiple news shows that have also used these exact words. Let us look at what by any means actually means. I am rereading 1984 by George Orwell. I first read it in high school but now I am getting a whole new and frightening perspective. In it the world is basically three superpowers and the Western world has become Oceania. Oceania is an extreme authoritarian regime that has constant and complete surveillance and power on its’ citizens including on their thoughts, at least on the ruling class which is known as just “The Party.” The majority of citizens are called “proles”, short for proletariat, and are basically not worth bothering with to constantly monitor as they do not have the wherewithal to organize. The book says of them: “What opinions the masses hold, or do not hold, is looked upon as a matter of indifference. They can be granted intellectual liberty because they have no intellect. In a Party member, on the other hand, not even the smallest deviation of opinion on the most unimportant subject can be tolerated.” (Note there are no books in the society with the exception of a few trashy novels published by the Party for the proles. All the rest, including magazines, newspapers, pictures, films and such from the past have been hunted down and destroyed.) A shadowy resistance has formed which is trying to destroy the party and our hero and main character, Winston, is trying to join it. He is asked questions by the person that contacted him from this resistance who turned out to be a top party official. The questions are to prove his commitment. His answers are those of a fanatic. What I find frightening is anyone that has read 1984 by George Orwell or one of the many science fiction novels that have predicted a dystopian future can see this world developing into one before our very eyes. What is more frightening is most have not read any of them and even more frightening is many that have refuse to see it developing. To top off the frightening list it was written in 1949. Keep in mind their resistance is composed of fanatics and the so-called resistance today is also composed of fanatics. Watching their protests and interviews should show any reasonably intelligent person these emotionally motivated people would go to any lengths necessary to bring about the goal they seek. Unsettling is many people that are considered intelligent support them. As you read the questions and answers below keep in mind a few of the things the left in the West are advocating: abortion after birth, legalizing drugs, legalizing prostitution, advocating breaking the law and creating disorder, offering virtually everything free, eliminating personal responsibility, decriminalizing knowingly infecting someone with a fatal disease, eliminating petroleum thus restricting movement which removes vast amounts of individual freedom and sexualizing children. They are tearing down monuments, changing the meanings of words and ideas, banning guns, books and free speech and advocating pedophilia while remaining silent on child abuse when it is committed by someone on their side of the aisle and ignoring, thus promoting, crime. Remember this book was written in 1949. From Orwell’s 1984:
“. . . . You will understand that I must start by asking you certain questions. In general terms, what are you prepared to do?”
“Anything that we are capable of,” said Winston.
“Are you prepared to give your lives?”
“Are you prepared to commit murder?”
“To commit acts of sabotage which may cause the death of hundreds of innocent people?”
“To betray your country to foreign powers?”
“Are you prepared to cheat, to forge, to blackmail, to corrupt the minds of children, to distribute habit-forming drugs, to encourage prostitution, to disseminate venereal diseases – to do anything which is likely to cause demoralization and weaken the power of the Party?”
“If, for example, it would somehow serve our interests to throw sulfuric acid in a child’s face – are you prepared to do that?”
“Are you prepared to lose your identity and live out the rest of your life as a waiter or a dock worker?”
“Are you prepared to commit suicide, if and when we order you to do so?”
In the future I will try to post some videos that show the extent of the fanaticism of the misguided present liberal resistance in the United States. It will be quite apparent that the level of fanaticism in the protests and on college campuses is on the level of the questions asked in the dystopian science fiction 1984 which actually is more prophetic than fiction. Here in America professors have been arrested for assaulting conservatives with deadly weapons and some have called for violence up to including killing conservatives. At this very moment we are witnessing violence, looting and arson nationwide. You can see the danger in the lack of intellectual reasoning and the level of emotions. They are what could figuratively and accurately described as a zombie army. Audio and video recordings show their lack of emotional stability and intellectual capacity. Another little blurb from the book has Winston talking with someone and his thoughts were: “Talking to her he realized how easy it was to present the appearance of orthodoxy , while having no grasp whatever of what orthodoxy meant. In a way, the worldview of the Party imposed itself most successfully on people incapable of understanding. They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them, and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening. By lack of understanding they remained sane. They simply swallowed everything, and what they swallowed did them no harm, because it left no residue behind, just as a grain of corn will pass undigested through the body of a bird.”
Today in the United State easily manipulated individuals are supported, encouraged and validated by members of the media, the entertainment industry, sport celebrities, school teachers, college professors and students and even elected representatives. These are the “fifth columnists” mentioned earlier. In Europe there has not been this level of resistance because Europe is peacefully morphing into the totalitarian regime depicted in 1984. The majority of those that make up the resistance in the US would deny they are working towards a totalitarian regime but the goals of the invisible powers have their own agenda and are using these “useful idiots” to attain those goals. The United States was going peacefully like lambs to the slaughter until the election of Donald Trump as President. His opponent in the election, Hillary Clinton, is a globalist and was expected to win the election continuing the movement toward a socialist, leftist authoritarian state. Trump’s election and her loss upset the cart so to speak. I was not overly enthusiastic over Donald Trump but he was exactly what was needed at this time. He exposed the hate, irrational nature and the goals of the left carefully hidden behind noble sounding words and a thin façade of civility. That thin façade has been deteriorating and unraveling since Trump’s election victory. It was displayed in its epitome by Nancy Pelosi on television tearing up Trump’s State of the Union address. I believe in a balance between the power of the state and the power of the individual and that delicate balance is what hangs in jeopardy. People you better wake up if not the end is near.
There have also been signs at these protests that said “Become Ungovernable.” This is the goal of the left and would create anarchy causing a collapse. The tactics used by the left are right out of Machiavelli’s The Prince with the philosophy of “the end justifies the means.” I could almost accept that IF, and it is a big IF, the end was good but name one place the extreme left (or the extreme right for that matter) has gained control over that did not experience an increase in poverty, crime, violence, disease, corruption, ignorance and illiteracy with the exception of China that was taken by the radical left but began moving towards a Western style of economics when it became obvious Marxism failed. It is also worth mentioning that they murdered between 40 and 70 million of their own citizens to establish this socialist utopia. The Democrats have been infiltrated by these leftist antisocial elements that have exploited the fears, hatreds, sexism, and racism that were dying out by the advance of Western civilization and progress. Most are unwitting accomplices that have been accurately but unflatteringly described as useful idiots as I mentioned before. Many celebrities and sports figures are in the useful idiot category. People like Madonna, Colin Kaepernick, and LeBron James, are examples of these useful idiots. Most are incapable of learning anything of useful value to a civilized society as they lack the necessary intellectual capacity and self-discipline required and are emotionally motivated. They are merely Judas goats or pied pipers for the mentally weak and emotionally unstable. Once a society collapses the useful idiots are often disposed of as they are no longer useful and actually pose a threat to the new regime. One need only look at the history of revolutions, with the exception of the American, to verify that. On that you might want to reread the quote in the last paragraph of essay 3. Intellectuals were instrumental in the lefts victory in China but many were eventually hunted down and imprisoned and often executed because they had the vision of a perfect society and when it did not turn out as expected they either created problems or had the potential to. The left does not see it because of their programming. They have only been programmed to be malcontents and create dissent and chaos and will continue to do so as part of the programming is to never be satisfied or happy. The antifas, pussy hat brigades, radical college professors, celebrities, sports figures and students fall into this category also. After a revolution the revolutionaries become an embarrassment or hindrance to the new powers that be and are more trouble than they are worth. It is easier to imprison or dispose of them than reprogram them. Besides there are lots more where they came from. In the third essay I quoted H.G. Wells on the difficulty of retraining the malcontents. They are mindless, emotional and immoral in their actions and goals. The following quotes are from a recent column by a George Mason University economics professor, Walter Williams, and are an accurate assessment:
Last week, U.S. Attorney General William Barr told a University of Notre Dame Law School audience that attacks on religious liberty have contributed to a moral decline that’s in part manifested by increases in suicides, mental illness and drug addiction. Barr said that our moral decline is not random but ‘organized destruction.’ Namely, that ‘Secularists and their allies have marshaled all the forces of mass communication, popular culture, the entertainment industry, and academia in an unremitting assault on religion and traditional values.’
“The attorney general is absolutely correct. Whether we have the stomach to own up to it or not, we have become an immoral people left with little more than the pretense of morality. . . “
“We must own up to the fact that laws and regulations alone cannot produce a civilized society. Morality is society’s first line of defense against uncivilized behavior. . . .”
Their uncivilized behavior is plainly evident in their actions toward those that disagree with them. Their hatred is open and if they were to regain control the persecution and violence toward conservatives would be extreme. It would precipitate violence which would result in collapse. They act more and more insane and unhinged day by day. They have threatened President Trump with everything from assault to death. They have threatened his supporters with everything from assault to death. They have published names and addresses of supporters, political donors and gun owners in what is known as doxing. They have destroyed signs and property. They have even stolen, off the heads of Trump supporters, the red MAGA hats, the visible symbol of the Trump presidency, and burned them. They have physically assaulted conservatives. Many have hidden their faces behind masks a tactic used by their spiritual brethren the Ku Klux Klan. (Now most everyone is wearing masks but for health reasons not to hide their identity). Many liberal political leaders, including elected ones, have condoned and ignored violence against conservatives and have prevented the police from doing anything even when the law has been violated. There was a celebrity talking about blowing up the White House. One celebrity appeared with a severed head of Donald Trump and in another incident a picture was displayed in a store window showing Trump being beheaded. Another celebrity posed with a gun shooting an effigy of Trump. They have harassed Trump supporters in restaurants and on the streets. They have harassed teens and children for speaking views counter to them. Teachers have ostracized students in both colleges and schools from high schools on down. They get people fired for free speech. Anything they don’t like they merely label hate speech which they feel gives them the freedom to remove or prevent it. They are establishing an Orwellian 1984 nightmare. Remember the quote by Orwell in 1984 about not tolerating any straying from strict Party philosophy: “In a Party member, on the other hand, not even the smallest deviation of opinion on the most unimportant subject can be tolerated.” People that are actually intelligent liberals or people sympathetic to many of their causes have been excoriated by the left for deviation. People like Steven Pinker, Margaret Atwood, Steven King and Marjorie Rowlings that have expressed what they consider unorthodox are fair game. Many YouTube videos can be viewed about violence against people, destruction of property and harassment perpetrated by the left. They do not see the absurdity in their positions.
Their hatred of the police and military is open and they are promoting lawlessness. They side with criminals over law-biding citizens. (Posted in “4A Links” of this site are links to various articles verifying that statement.} A newly elected airhead congresswoman is for doing away with prisons and siding with protesters breaking the law. Some places have stopped prosecuting crimes of theft under as much as $950 dollars. The newly elected district attorney of San Francisco, Chesa Boudin, is ending cash bail, ending enhanced penalties for being a gang member and committing a crime and ending prosecutions for quality of life crimes such as prostitution, urination or defecation in public and other minor crimes. The sidewalks of San Francisco are littered with discarded hypodermic needles used for injecting drugs and human feces. On election night San Francisco City Supervisor Sandra Lee said “Fuck the POA” (the Police Officer Association). Fox news said of Boudin he is “The son of parents who were members of the radical left-wing Weather Underground, Boudin grew up with his parents incarcerated for their roles in an armed robbery that left three men dead.” Not an isolated case either. In the Wall Street Journal, 01/11/20 an article appeared titled “Philadelphia’s Top Prosecutor Pursues ‘Social,’ Justice Not Actual, Justice.” A murderer was acquitted due to the prosecutor’s policies. The article said: “The murderer admitted to police and at his trial that he plunged a knife several times into Schellenger’s [the victim] back during a July 2018 scuffle in Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square. Numerous witnesses and a cellphone video confirmed what happened.” It also said in the next paragraph: “Mr. Krasner [the prosecutor] is one of a new crop of “progressive prosecutors” who have won elections in liberal cities.” It also mentioned a name I spoke of earlier and will speak of later, George Soros. (In Essay 4A are links to articles about George Soros. His name surfaces on a regular basis on anti Western civilization activities.) “Mr. Krasner’s candidacy was laughed off until George Soros dumped $1.7 million into the campaign.” These are the people the leftist fifth columnists are supporting and electing and it will bring society crashing down. Without law society will collapse which is what their goal is. We will find it would have been easier to prevent these types of enemies of humanity than to deal with them after the fact. Below are three incidents from The Blank Slate by Steven Pinker. The Blank Slate should be required reading for every college student but it is doubtful today’s unthinking emotionally motivated college students have the intelligence to read it and understand it. Like the previously mentioned grain of corn going through a bird undigested.
“. . . . In the late 1970s Norman Mailer, received a letter from a prisoner named Jack Henry Abbott, who had spent most of his life behind bars for crimes ranging from passing bad checks to killing a fellow prisoner. Mailer was writing a book about the murderer Gary Gilmore, and Abbott offered to help him get into the mindset of a killer by sharing his prison diaries and his radical critique of the criminal justice system. Mailer was dazzled by Abbott’s prose and proclaimed him to be a brilliant new writer and thinker –‘an intellectual, a radical, a potential leader, a man obsessed with a vision of more elevated human relations in a better world that revolution could forge.’ . . . . .
“Over the objections of prison psychiatrists who saw that Abbott had PSYCHOPATH written all over his face, Mailer and other New York literati helped him win an early parole. Abbott was soon fêted at literary dinners, likened to Sozhenitsyn and Jacobo Timerman, and interviewed on Good Morning America and in People magazine. Two weeks later he got into an argument with an aspiring young playwright who was working as a waiter in a restaurant and had asked Abbott not to use the employee’s restroom. Abbott asked him to step outside, stabbed him in the chest, and left him to bleed to death on the sidewalk.”
One involving Richard Pryor:
“Not everyone was conned. The comedian Richard Pryor described his experience at the Arizona State Penitentiary during the filming of Stir Crazy:
[Pryor]:’ it made my heart ache, you know, to see all the beautiful black men in the joint. Goddam; the warriors should be out there helping the masses. I felt that way, I was real naïve. Six weeks I was up there and I talked to the brothers. I talked to ‘em, and . . .[looks around frightened] . . . Thank God we got penitentiaries! I asked one, “Why did you kill everybody in the house?” He says “They was home.” . . . I met one dude, kidnapped-murdered four times. And I thought, three times, that was your last, right? I says, “What happened?” [Answers in falsetto] ‘I can’t get this shit right! But I getting paroled in two years.’”
“Pryor was not, of course, denying the inequities that continue to put disproportionate numbers of African-Americans in prison. He was only contrasting the common sense of ordinary people with the romanticism of intellectuals – and perhaps exposing their condescending attitude that poor people can’t be expected to refrain from murder, and that they should not be alarmed by the murderers in their midst.”
Pinker also related an incident from his younger years.
“. . . . . When law enforcement vanishes, all manner of violence breaks out: looting, settling old scores, ethnic cleansing, and petty warfare among gangs, warlords, and mafias. This was obvious in the remnants of Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, and parts of Africa in the 1990s, but it can also happen in countries with long tradition of civility. As a young teenager in proudly peaceable Canada during the romantic 1960s, I was a true believer in Bakunin’s anarchism. I laughed at my parents’ argument that if the government ever laid down its arms all hell would break loose. Our competing predictions were put to the test at 8;00 AM on October 17, 1969, when the Montréal police went on strike. By 11:20 AM the first bank was robbed. By noon most downtown stores had closed because of looting. Within a few more hours, taxi drivers burned down the garage of a limousine service that had competed with them for airport customers, a rooftop sniper killed a provincial police officer, rioters broke into several hotels and restaurants, and a doctor slew a burglar in his suburban home. By the end of the day, six banks had been robbed, a hundred shops had been looted, 12 fires had been set, forty carloads of storefront glass had been broken, and $3 million in property damage had been inflicted, before city authorities had to call in the Army and, of course, the Mounties to restore order. This decisive empirical test left my politics in tatters (and offered a foretaste of life as a scientist).
“The generalization that anarchy in the sense of a lack of government leads to anarchy in the sense of violent chaos may seem banal, but it is often overlooked in today’s still romantic climate. Government in general, is anathema to many conservatives, and the police and prison system are anathema to many liberals. . . . . “
Urban areas tend to be the most crime infected and also where these harebrained ideas tend to originate. If one looks at maps of election results it is very obvious the liberal areas are primarily urban and the rural areas are primarily conservative. These maps are illustrated using red and blue with the blue areas being majority liberal/Democrat and the red areas are majority conservative/Republican. (There are three map diagrams in Essay 9 that you will find very interesting.) The psychology, environment, and economics between the two areas are quite different. Rural areas are more independent and self-sufficient. Urban areas tend to be wealthier with more opportunities available with regards employment, education, housing etc., etc., but there are also drawbacks. The Human Zoo by Desmond Morris I referenced in previous Essay 3 spoke about some. The urban areas also have more homeless, more crime, more mental illness, more suicide (understandable due to the more mentally ill and higher stress levels) and a higher rate of divorce. It is also easier for people to “hustle” their fellow humans in urban areas. In rural areas most know who the freeloaders and parasites are that are responsible for their own predicament. In urban areas the beggars on the street are unknown while in rural areas the lazy are distinguishable from the legitimately needy and legitimately mentally ill. Also most plagues originate in crowded conditions. The Bubonic Plague of the Middle Ages originated in China and today (11/28/19) as I was writing this a news post stated the fourth case of Bubonic plague has been found in China. I was reading in The Wall Street Journal 01/09/20 an article with the headline “Chinese Scientists Discover New Coronavirus Strain” Also on 01/23/20, as I was going over this another headline hit the news: “Chinese market at center of coronavirus outbreak sold wolves, rats to eat.” It went on to say: “It has since been confirmed to spread via human-to-human contact, as fears mount that it could become a global pandemic.” And, “The coronavirus, which causes flu-like symptoms, has spread to four other countries, including the US, where a case was detected in Washington State.”
The blue areas owe their existence to the red more than they would like to acknowledge. William Jennings Bryan, the Democrat nominee for president in 1896, in his famous “Cross of Gold” speech said the following: “. . . I tell you that the great cities rest upon these broad and fertile prairies. Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic. But destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country.” It may have been 1896 but it is still applicable today.
The cities are susceptible to groupthink much easier than rural areas. Groupthink as described by Encyclopedia Britannica: “Groupthink, mode of thinking in which individual members of small cohesive groups tend to accept a viewpoint or conclusion that represents a perceived group consensus, whether or not the group members believe it to be valid, correct, or optimal. Groupthink reduces the efficiency of collective problem solving within such groups.” The groupthink now tends to be in large groups probably due to the internet, television and cellphones and is plainly exhibited by the liberals. Go to any college and try to discuss a subject with the students. The media is an another good example. The liberal media has become an organ of the Democrat Party. CNN, MSNBC, ABC, and the rest all say almost exactly the same things on any given day. One day the talking points and key trigger words will be: “collusion”, another day, “bombshell”, another “tipping point”, another “impeachment” and so on. In 1984 a good description was found of what you can expect on a college campus and the media: “. . . . Winston had a curious feeling that this was not a real human being but some kind of dummy. It was not the man’s brain that was speaking; it was his larynx. The stuff that was coming out of him consisted of words, but it was not speech in the true sense: it was a noise uttered in unconsciousness, like the quacking of a duck.”
One question I find unsettling is how far has mind control advanced. The People Shapers by Vance Packard discussed some startling facts that should concern everyone. As you read the following passages keep in mind this was published in 1978 so probably written in 1977. While numerous passages I am ultimately going some where with them in the future. Read them and think about them as you read them.
“This book suggests that we are racing toward the hair-raising worlds envisioned by two Englishmen. I refer, of course, to George Orwell’s brutish, all seeing dictatorship of 1984, and the more distant, far more sophisticated dictatorship of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, with its human hatcheries, personality molding and enticing use of drugs.
“The People Shapers is about current factual developments worldwide…….”
“A number of the innovations for manipulating behavior, however, have been, up to now, peculiarly American. These are described in the early part of this book. I refer to attempts at behavior modification by conditioning techniques, using drugs to pacify schoolchildren and prisoners, using electricity to modify our moods and personality, use of surgery to alter personality, use of hidden TV cameras and vast computers to maintain surveillance of the populace, use of subliminal stimulation to sell products, use of drugs to modify intelligence.”
From the book’s various chapters
“We have not yet seen what man can make of man”. –B.F. Skinner, behavioral psychologist
“B. F. Skinner’s ringing pronouncement reflects ambition as much as fact. But dramatic efforts are indeed underway to reshape people and their behavior. These efforts obviously have profound implications. And quite a few instances the implications are disquieting.
“Human engineers are at work in a variety of fields. They are increasing the capacity of relatively small number of people to control, modify, manipulate, reshape the lives of a great number of other people. And they’re functioning in many countries, especially in the United States, Great Britain, Germany, France, Japan, Canada, Israel, Russia, Australia, the Netherlands, and Scandinavia. We can now add China to the list.
“These new technologists draw primarily upon discoveries in the behavioral, biological, and computer sciences. Control is being achieved over human actions, moods, wishes, thoughts.”
“The strategies being pressed by the human engineers have caused some observers to suggest that we are hurtling toward the fictional worlds envisioned by two Englishmen. I refer to George Orwell’s 1984 and Aldous Huxley’s brave New World, projected for six centuries from now. Actually Orwell’s Big Brother was pretty heavy-handed and simplistic compared with Huxley’s World Controller, Mustapha Mond.”
“Brainwashing is not as mysterious as it once seemed. It involves very little reliance on drugs. The so-called truth drugs even for interrogation have been overrated. They bring out fantasies as well as fact. Drugs have a modest success rate in ferreting out facts the subject does not wish to reveal, especially if stable and highly motivated. In true brainwashing there is also relatively little use of excruciating torture, such as is still used in several dozen countries in the routine interrogation of suspects, dissidents, and the like. The brainwashers were less interested in obtaining information than obtaining converts. The latter could be used for propaganda purposes in broadcasting for writing denunciations for their homeland”
“Today’s band of human-behavior controllers . . . can be found . . . in classrooms, kitchens, mental hospitals, rehabilitation wards, prisons, nursing homes, day care centers, factories, movie theaters, national parks, community mental-health centers, stores, recreation centers, and right next door.” –Kenneth Goodall, in Psychology Today
“The thousands of experts at conditioning are now trying out their behavior-changing technology on tens of thousands of people……
“In 1975 the National Institute of Mental Health undertook to make an evaluation of the proliferating behavior-modification programs. It came up with a recommendation that more effort be made to try our behavior-modification techniques on larger numbers of persons in the general population, outside institutions.”
“In less than a decade, the behavioral technologists have moved in a major way into our compulsory, government-operated public schools. Just one ardent behavior shaper, Charles H. Madsen, Jr., of Florida State University, has, as a consultant, taught operant-conditioning techniques to many thousands of teachers.”
“In the future we will undoubtedly hear much more about modifying brain function by chemicals introduced into the bloodstream than about electrical implants. Implanting is so much more expensive. Also, except in institutions where coercion or promises of release are possible, implants have to be truly voluntary, and most people find the idea of electric charges going off in their heads unattractive. On the other hand, most people have very positive attitudes towards producing change by taking pills. And they have already accepted medication via fluoridation of their drinking water. Other chemicals may in the future be added to their water without their awareness. Buckets of pacifying chemicals might be quietly poured in reservoirs by the authorities in times of ugly social unrest. Conceivably buckets of suggestibility chemicals might be added whenever the authorities were about to launch a massive propaganda campaign. Or the specific water drinkers could be pinpointed. The chemicals could be used to forestall rebellion on the campus, strikes in industry, or riots in the ghettos.” [I will return to this thought in the future.]
This came from a subsection titled: TAMING UNRULY PUBLIC SCHOOL CHILDREN CHEMICALLY
“The uproar began in Omaha. Thousands of children in the public schools were reportedly being drugged during school hours to reduce their unruliness. It was for the children’s own good, so the argument went, since they had some sort of brain malfunction. The pills helped quiet their brains so they could be better students in the early grades. And they would stop disrupting the work of other students.”
“Who diagnosed these young sufferers in Omaha? Mainly their teachers. How did the teachers learn to make these diagnoses? Many have heard talks by representatives of drug companies, or were briefed by other staff members who had heard the talks. The teachers told parents that doctors now had pills that could help their children improve their concentration and perform better in class. . .
“The public discussion created by the report from Omaha flushed out the discovery that drugged schoolchildren were a fact of life in hundreds of American school systems. The most commonly mentioned estimate then was at least 250,000 grammar school pupils were on amphetamines or Ritalin. And the number was growing rapidly. Now the estimates range from 500,000 to 2,000,000 (the latter figure appeared in a 1976 report in Science Digest).
“There were also reports that in many school systems the proportion of pupils on stimulant drugs ran between 10 and 15 percent.”
“It is pertinent to recall at this point that in the United States, parents are required by law to send their children to school. The schools are institution of government. That being so, are the schools in general exerting, however subtly, any kind of government pressure to get children on behavior modifying drugs?”
“One of the oldest mysteries of Man is being tapped today on a large scale to induce people to behave as they would not ordinarily do. I refer to hypnosis. It is being used by the police, by advertisers, by physicians, by educators, by attorneys, by athletic coaches, by psychotherapists, by military personnel. . “. . Page 159
“In the late 1700’s Fritz Mesmer, a Viennese physician began ‘mesmerizing ‘patients intentionally. He thought some sort of magnetic fluids created the hypnotic behavior. A half-century later, a Scottish physician, James Braid, dismissed magnetic fluids or currents and decided that the phenomena was an abnormal form of sleep. He called it ‘hypnosis’, the Greek word for sleep. He was wrong. Hypnotists usually tell subjects they’re going to sleep. They go into a waking trance. Their brain waves are not those of a sleeping person, but rather those of a very, very relaxed person.” Page 159
“How can people be induced to do such strange things under hypnosis? What is it? Hypnosis involves an increased susceptibility to suggestion. In its milder form a TV commercial in which an admired person repeats keywords over and over can induce some people to hasten to buy the advertised product. . ”
From a subsection titled: HYPNOSIS BY REMOTE CONTROL
“The hypnotist does not need to be in the same room with the subject in order to put him in a trance. He can in fact be miles away. One way to hypnotize by remote control is by television.
“The psychiatrist Herbert Spiegel demonstrated this in an experiment at Columbia. A subject known to be hypnotizable sat in a lounge chair before a TV set. Spiegel was seated before a closed-circuit TV camera four stories below. He talked to the subject, just as if the subject were the same room and put him into a trance. . .
“Spiegel suggests that televised hypnosis could have a number of uses. It could be used in group therapy and mass education. . . . . But Spiegel warns that the technique could have dangerous consequences if used in any way in public broadcasts. . . .
“The warning is in order. Several years ago a radio performer in England inadvertently hypnotized a portion of his listening audience. . . . “
From a subsection titled: POLICE, LEGAL, MILITARY USES
“Military planners have long been intrigued by the possibility of getting warriors, via some form of hypnosis, to perform with extraordinary strength and endurance in times of battle. The American military have experimented successfully with using ‘hypnotic couriers’. The psychologist G. H. Estabrooks, a Rhodes Scholar who obtained his PhD from Harvard, revealed that he was involved in preparing many such couriers during World War II. Codes can be broken. Captured couriers can be tortured into revealing their messages. But a hypnotized courier is virtually unbreakable.”
“For the last twenty years the CIA has been testing and using many types of behavior control. Hypnosis apparently has been included, sometimes in combination with drugs. . .” Remember this was written in 1977 so that means they have been into research and development since 1957. Let that sink in.
I know that was quite a bit from one book but remember this was written in 1977. How much more have they developed since? People you better wake up. The Americans, the Russians and the Chinese are all working on developing mind control techniques. Right now the Chinese government has 1,000,000 Muslims in mental institutions changing their behavior. This is being done manually so to speak by such techniques as making them eat pork which is something extremely loathsome to Muslims. If they had the ability to do it by waves or rays or pills or some faster method you better believe they would. There are patents on mind control devices and methods. Here is a link to a list of some. Just some! :
Because of the length and importance I will stop here and post a continuation later. It will be more on why the left should not gain control until the political scene has stabilized and will also be the two choices we are faced with. For now I will let you digest what was just said.
