The Deadly Mechanics of Money Inc.

by STEPHEN MARTIN

Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past. 

-George Orwell

‘History’ is a malleable concept; much as ‘apperception’, it reflects a selectivity and emphasis,  an  interaction with ‘values’ and ‘interpretation’ which is rarely without bias, and without such pliability the validity of Orwell’s insight into pragmatism as in quote above would be much more open to doubt?

‘To the victor go the spoils’ (of war) – so it goes.

Subject this small article is how the American present is controlled; how it has come to be that a Constitution and Declaration of Independence enshrining such a  Political beauty has come to represent a ‘present’ where the majority of Americans are dispossessed of participation, whom marginalised and manipulated, and where the agenda so supported at a Political level has come to form a ‘line’ which denies diversity; which denies questioning and denies ‘Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness’ to so many Citizens of America as evident thru consideration of socioeconomic realities represented by: unemployment, working conditions, levels of incarceration, food stamp, infant mortality and the ‘Gini Coefficient’ to name but a few of the indicants of the ‘state of play Political’, and which realise a permeation, or restriction, of ‘quality of life’?

As a ‘Prole’, these small quarters find that the question:

‘If Man is basically good, why are things in such a bloody awful mess?’

Has a certain ‘resonance’.

As to the proposition that things are in ‘a bloody awful mess’ – one need only look around with an open mind as determining self evidence meaning prepared to accept the things as would rather not be seen such the ‘denial’ as would prevail as part of the ‘Orthodoxy’ which would have us not able to see; which would thought killed at the root, and so debasement of individual life thru abrogation as to having a division and a conquering resultant?

One can, these small quarters reliably assured, travel the World and see little, such the protective bubble afforded, most particularly of the genuine sufferance which is the price of such bubble possible; from hotel room to hotel room, from conference to conference or from board room to board room; there are comforts readily available of a material nature which facilitate a ‘disassociation’ from ‘reality’ become pathological in extent ‘made easy’, and which enables parallel of ‘let them eat cake!’ being  uttered when it comes to the shortage of bread which will lead to revolt – and such on the ‘benign’ side of interpretation, particularly when it comes to ‘scheme’ – and real abrogation when it comes to the obscenity of ’surplus population’ – such the requirement of ‘Incorporation’ made explicit?

But as to ‘revolt’: this brings us to the second strand this small article; which being of a ‘deadly mechanics’ as represented within the ‘incorporation’ of a fifteen percent as the ‘Outer Party’, and with particular reference to America, as this small article is written for an American Institution of ‘Democracy’ so understood as to allow, or permit, the expression of views or opinions which would as to ‘Orthodoxy’ or the Mainstream as concerns ‘media’, be cast into oblivion as aspect of ‘memory hole’ indeed when it comes to the reservation of  ‘but, but…’ being as to out with the shroud of ‘Corporatism’ concerning necessary exclusion aka ‘censorship’?

America is a prototype for a certain form of Orthodoxy as a ‘death of thought’ as Orwell defined. It is a young Country which has been much abused and which has been afforded little by way of the refutation, such the ‘catch’ as can serve under ‘maxim’ of Orthodoxy; and it is a tragic fact that to be ‘American’ today is to be subjected to a particular form of ‘brainwash’ as ‘Hsi Nao’ as the Chinese coined the phrase under Mao,  thus become ‘Corporatised’ or ‘Incorporated’ concerning a new form of Fascism as has ‘evolved’ under the impetus of the one percent, fifteen percent, eighty four percent annihilation of the ‘party’- that would be life, as would be liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

It is ‘life’ Jim, but not as we know it, such the affirmation as would be rendered Liberty; as stars of the ‘Free Market’ would be seen such the trek in pursuit of ‘Happiness’ particularly when average American unable to provide for family, or when there is a vote which is discounted by way of an agenda is going to be followed anyway such the hide as ‘black box’ entails; it is life so accordant as when there is a control of the present as would have such implications for the past, for the present – and so as to the greatest tragedy as would be made of such death of thought: the future?

‘No Future’ as of the Sex Pistols sang such the irony, when there is such a control and manipulation by the ‘sixteeen per cent’ as incorporates Inner and Outer when it comes to  party?

There is no representation of what are the ‘beggars at the banquet’ so reduced when money incorporates, form of love of the filthy leading inevitably towards a degeneracy expressed in concept of the past, the present – and the future?

How does Barack Obama represent an ‘advance’ upon ‘Dubya’ such ‘sense’?

‘Hope and change’ such reduced to mere ‘strap line’ has been sadly let down as evidenced in the trend of ‘orthodoxy’ in the sense Orwellian; there has been no change other than acceleration sense of decline in the transfer of resources and the one percent have grown fatter under the watch, as have the fifteen percent been bolstered in the ‘selectivity’ afforded by economic depression as engineered, such the control and manipulation?

More poverty and immiseration in America is wilful as the expression of a degeneracy?

Is there a ‘racket’ going on as a war in which the majority as a concept of Democracy are to lose out?

Does desperation for gainful employment lead towards an abrogation of responsibility which means the ‘Outer Party’ as contingency become more pliable concerning the placement of rogues; the selective ‘reward’ as an extension of said contingency becoming thereby so as to further the ‘death of thought’?

If so, does unemployment have a certain purpose in context of what amounts to an economic warfare?

Not questions as would be posed by the ‘mainstream’ when it comes to the disproportionate representation of American Citizen which a ‘crime scene’ become?

As such there are ‘do not cross’ lines widespread when it comes to the questions as would be asked ‘natural’ – but which mere ‘foxes’ in charge of the ‘hen hut’ would not have asked, such the seriousness of the ‘investigation’?

These small quarters remain ‘free to ask’ such questions given that no money has exchanged hands for the ‘writing’ as expresses the basis of control and manipulation.

To any crime a question should be asked; that of ‘Cui Bono?’

The benefits are to the ‘norm’ quantifiable.

That is to say, in a scenario of impoverishment of the masses, one should look to the one per cent, or the fifteen per cent upon which the ‘axis’ would be made to turn. But then again, it is a radical proposition such the present in America that the real axis should be the Majority – that there should be Democracy, perish the thought as denial of the Orthodoxy which prevails?

Final words this small article, given as between the lines of Corporatism.

America is a crime scene of expropriation and assassination when it comes to ‘Politics’ and consideration of the distribution of wealth when it comes to ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’ so reduced by degeneracy.

Illusion would prevail at the expense of the majority, and in favour of a small minority – delineated as sixteen per cent.

So much for the bad news.

The good news is that it is not to be a ‘walkover’, or a ‘slam dunk’; or something which shall pay for itself.

The good news is that ‘Zionism’ is becoming to be acknowledged as a factor in the equation, so much as ‘Orthodoxy’ cannot exist where there is yet question, there is yet diversity which would not blindly follow the ‘don’t look here, look there!’ as ‘reflects’ the death of thought as would occur by way of ‘assassination polymorphous’. (Purely as to  happenstance’, so it goes)

The continual reiteration of a mere lie is no grounds for the acceptance of same lie as being a truth. The denial of hidden agenda made explicit is a progress such sense as questions concerning ‘false flag’ arise?

The one per cent rely; such the link in the chain, upon the control and manipulation exerted by the fifteen per cent as per the sublime prescience of Orwell. That the eighty four per cent are being repressed to point of gradual extinction represents the ‘American prototype’ of what would be a ‘New World’, such the order as self evident as in the incorporation of ‘intelligence’ as reflected in the ‘morphing’ of the CIA, MI5 and ‘Mossad’; into one such the ‘share’; sense of another Orwell quote as presented for your consideration as a Citizen – a luxury these small quarters not afforded, such the ‘contemporaneity’, such the ‘outside’ as apposite concerning Globalization:

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which
