“We are being managed. We lowly citizens have no say, effectively, no representational action in the government whatsoever, and are here to work for, and pay taxes to finance the capitalists. We are the modern day equivalent of chattel slavery of the past. This system of ‘Managed Democracy’, a “Specter of Inverted Totalitarianism”(S.Wolin), leaves us prey to the winds and whims of time. Which, along with the global poisoning/heating phenomenon, is destroying our only home, Earth. Our time is just about up as a species.” J Allen
The COVID-19 Ops
The current COVID-19(hence c-virus) pandemic that is laying waste to large swaths of humanity worldwide, and swathed in fear, is, I’m convinced, an engineered virus, and is being run as an ops to realign the populations of the world. I mentioned yesterday that the attacks of September 11,’01 were also run as an ops, a spectacle for the world to see. The c-virus is a more subtle way to gain ever more control over the populace is an effort to retain control and capital in a digital system of Neo-feudalism. I don’t have the time today to totally explore this new phenomenon more completely and actual books are just being published to enlighten better on this new regime being used to further gain more concrete forms of control.
I will say it smacks of pure and simple fascism. As capitalism starts to fail, by falling profits, failing economies, etc; we can get to a democratic form of socialism,(left) or corporate fascism,(right). We are getting, or have more directly, a corporate fascism taking an iron boot to the workers of the world. The actual left is in a losing battle to get some decency back to the remaining time left here on Earth. I fear the future looks bleak.
The US government was pretty much taken over by the corporate domain by the end of the last war, WW II. Anyone in government that stands in their way is taken down one way or the other. The Kennedy’s and King were assassinated. Nixon was covertly taken down also. With Trump a few failed week-ass attempts to remove him have failed miserably. He has done everything the corporate state has asked for except to put on a nice, Obama like face, and smile and act “presidential”(Williams). It’s just a show, a Disneylanding display of respectability, with seething contempt and vituperative violence underneath a veneer of banal doings amounting to nothing concrete.
The President is there to sign bills and look nice while he bombs the shit out of some chosen country that didn’t bow to the US hegemon. Or economic sanctions are applied to strangle the life out any player that won’t let large multi-nation corporations set up shop and siphon all the resources up and keep the profits to boot. We either get a fast strike by a Taipan snake with the bombings, or slow strangulation by an Anaconda as life is slowly squeezed out of that nations citizenry. Capitalism is an ugly business.
Since my time is short today as to attend a meeting with my father’s chosen functionary to carry out his affairs after he suffered a stoke two weeks ago Sunday. What I thought was well planned out wasn’t and now I have to deal with matters I’m socially ill equipped to deal with. Plus my lung cancer has returned which has tainted what little hope and optimism I may have had for a future; for myself, and for humankind. I’m leaving a link to an essay that details some of what I mentioned above. It has various links to other sources to support his thesis. Pepe Escobar is one of the best independent journalists out there. His piece is illuminating. The c-virus plays heavily. So do the attacks of September 11,’01. I wrote about them yesterday. Be kind and stay safe. Peace, The Ol’ Hippy \/ : link below
