Who you calling 'liberal'?

Greetings good citizen,

As the destruction of our civilization progresses we are seeing what might be called ‘cognitive dissonance’ among the champions of, er, ‘democracy’.

Which is to point out that merely paying ‘lip service’ to enlightened ideals doesn’t alter which side of the class war you’re on.

The pillars of the liberal establishment—the press, the church, culture, the university, labor and the Democratic Party—all honor an unwritten quid pro quo with corporations and the power elite, as well as our masters of war, on whom they depend for money, access and positions of influence. Those who expose this moral cowardice and collaboration with corporate power are always ruthlessly thrust aside. [snip]

The same thing happened to Ralph Nader, Noam Chomsky, Dennis Kucinich, Jeremiah Wright and others who defied the political orthodoxy of corporate capitalism. The corporate forces, which have taken control of the press and which break unions, run the universities, fund the arts and own the Democratic Party, demand the banishment of all who question the good intentions of the powerful. Liberals who comply are tolerated within the system. They are permitted to busy themselves with the boutique activism of political correctness, inclusiveness or multiculturalism. If they attempt to fight for the primacy of justice, they become pariahs.

There exists a whole class of tree-hugging conservatives out there who don’t give a fuck about people or social justice, they are only interested in preserving ecology so THEY can exploit it later!

Which is to point out there is no shortage of so-called ‘liberals’ out there working their own agenda!

For the last time good citizen, there’s no such thing as a ‘rich liberal’, it's an oxymoron!

Naturally, this begs the question of who the hell are those assholes running as, er, ‘democrats’?

The answer, as the current incumbent shows us is, “ I dunno but they sure aren’t liberals!”

In yet another, er, ‘unclaimed’ (and therefore likely to disappear) AP piece.

Stocks Fall on Weak Economic News
Published: May 26, 2011

Stocks fell in morning trading after two disappointing economic reports revealed a weak United States jobs market and sluggish overall economic growth.

The Labor Department said more people applied for unemployment benefits last week, the first increase in three weeks. The number of people seeking benefits rose by 10,000 to 424,000, more than analysts were expecting.

Applications are above the 375,000 level that is consistent with sustainable job growth. Applications peaked at 659,000 during the recession. Employers stepped up hiring this spring, but some economists worry that rising applications indicate hiring is slowing.

The Commerce Department said the economy grew at a sluggish 1.8 percent in the January to March quarter as surging gasoline prices and sharp cuts in government spending overshadowed strong corporate earnings. Consumer spending grew at just half the rate of the previous quarter, less than previously estimated. A surge in imports widened the United States trade deficit.

Not necessarily ‘good news’ but they seem to occasionally balance the happy talk with some less than glowing reports, spun to make the reader think they are outriders rather than what they really are…data that is as good as it gets!

But, be that as it may, we have this insightful article that ventures bravely into the swamp of what is or isn’t ‘money’.

The culture imperative of the developed world was financed consumption and apathy, while its political imperative was the concentration of wealth and the appeasement of those being continuously plundered. All of those lacking control of productive assets, including both "debtors" and "savers", found it impossible to maintain their wealth, purchasing power and/or service their debts over time. These people were all "workers" who sold their productive capacity in the marketplace, and received increasingly less value for it over time.

Superficial concessions were frequently granted by the controlling class (i.e. minimum wages, union benefits, bankruptcy process, welfare, wage-arbitraged prices, etc.) and their propaganda was planted deeply in the minds of middle-class dreamers, but that has not stopped the middle-class from relentlessly fading to black. It then becomes clear that any other global monetary system, including "Freegold" (a synthesis of physical gold-based money and debt-based currencies; briefly described in Part I), would serve as a lie for the masses.

Shorthand good citizen, whosoever controls (the value of) your money; controls you.

Gold never was nor will it ever be ‘real money’, there actually is no such thing (much to the chagrin of the pseudo-rich.)

The, er, ‘unreality’ of money has been the topic of many posts but, for some bizarre reason, nobody believes the truth.

Well, okay, a few of you ‘get it’.

Even I have to abide by the ‘When in Rome’ axiom.

Which, as many will point out, makes money the ultimate ‘mindfuck’.

It is also behind my repeated admonishments that the collapse of our civilization is totally ‘unnecessary’ (from a purely practical point of view.)

The imbalances wrought by the ‘fuck you, pay me’ system are easily correctable so what we’re really dealing with here is ‘mismanagement’ (and some pretty deep rooted and disturbing psychosis as well!)

The handwriting is on the wall, how unfortunate is it that most are ‘illiterate’?

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
