An Abominable Merger

Enemy of the Stateless

by STEPHEN MARTIN

You are either with us or you are against us in the fight against terror.

George W. Bush, POTUS 43

The fight against an abstract noun was as much a falsehood in 2001 as it remains now; a tragedy concerning the imposition of illusion towards pragmatic ends as to profitability and mere racketeering  in the imposition of ‘kleptocracy’ over ‘Democracy’ form of Corporatism as a mere Orthodoxy; the death of thought entailed in the absence of questioning enforced – above all thru the prevalence by arrogation of stateless bastards over Humanity, reduced to the absurd of  a polymorphous ‘Apartheid’ as  a political obscenity which can only be rationalised through a cursed ‘religion’ as a  perversity of morality in which there is ample room for concept such as ‘Untermensch’ of ‘Nazi Germany’ or ‘Goyim’ of ‘Israel’ finding economic consequence?

Such the wedge as must have  ‘thin’ and ‘thick’ end – as much as ‘first they came for’ – as Neimöller (see below) articulated an inevitable ‘progression’?

By the way, lest you know it not, most of the Western World is now a ‘kleptocracy’ and this incorporates America such the ‘austerity’ as Globalization entails?

Not so much a ‘nap’ as a ‘SNAP’ concerning the restriction of food stamp by way of  further ‘trickle down’ of neo liberal Orthodoxy aka ‘free market’ realized – and it is ‘free’ alright: ‘free’ for plunder by the rich, ‘free’ for gangsters to racketeer – and ‘free’ for the whoredom as in intellectual prostitution abrogating ‘moral compass’ (God given) in the selling out of truth: meaning lies ‘reward’ orifices; to cause of widespread impoverishment in an obscene ‘transfer of resources’ as per euphemism concerning ‘externalisation’ pathological?

‘Free’ – but not for the poor as in Panopticon of NSA and GCHQ proportion, such the Prism as refracts the abominable merge of Corporate interests with those of  ‘State’ – and ‘if you are not doing anything wrong then you have nothing to worry about’, so it goes concerning irony -and saying one thing whilst antonym meant?

Such the singing of the ‘rainbow’ so resultant as reflects ‘ability’?

Such the ‘irresistible temptation’, indeed.

Big Brother, or Big Sister, is watching you for reasons of ‘Homeland Security’?

‘Free’ – but not of the sell out of ‘political representation’ which means that to have any ‘chance’, either House, either Party, the line must be followed to point of boot stomping down on face, as Orwell envisaged – and this become the tragic reality of most of the Western World construed ‘Geopolitikal’ to point of acknowledgement of power bloc, such the dystopian ‘Chessboard’ of reptilian abrogation. ( In ‘Dispatches’ Michael Herr delineates said reptilian abrogation in his recount of a random, helicopter borne, machine gunner mowing down anything living indigenous below as there a ‘Har, Har, git some!’ articulation expressive of the pragmatic reduction of the value of life which the service of profit and Corporate interests demands concerning exercise of the lower realms of psychophysical parallel as would stem from such as medulla and pons?)

How much the progress from the ‘Iron Horse’ bearing similar marksmen, such the fruit of Empiricism?

As much as the bridge of corpus callosum a bridge too far to contain a sustainable ‘evolutionary trajectory’ – such the ‘toll of the bell end’?

It: a ‘free market’ for the immoral and uneconomic transfer of resources from the poor to the rich to point of extinction – because stateless bastards wanted it all?

Corruption by way of the fruits of the control and issue of ‘currency’ to point of no more than usury applied as ‘love’ of money is, alas, an ugliness capable of polymorphic ramification, and questionable as to the lesser such sense as ‘pusher’ and ‘junkie’ – though deep down we all know the answer to that one?

The fact that opium production in Afghanistan has reached an all time ‘high’ must surely state something even to concept of ‘happenstance’ as intellect prostituted?

Profit is the opium of the minority aka stateless bastards?

Not the least considered context of transfer of resources to point of a den as a collective of degenerates?

What a mess ‘we’ are in – and the more so becomes evident the more ‘denial’ must come to the fore as a symptom of the pathology seen?

It: the mess of ‘bang’ or ‘whimper’ as TS Eliot phrased poetical the ‘choice’ Corporatism represents; because there is one thing for sure – we cannot carry on like this?

It: the meaning as of that great American comedian Bill Hicks, most usually articulated thru his alter ego of ‘goat boy’ when he spoke of the consequences of sucking Satan’s cock?

The 21st Century is to be the century of ‘Austerity’ epitomised by Ecocide, such the darkness of the age?

Forget ‘Global Warming’ as some mere scam emanating by way of Griftopia from the same ‘people’ (stateless bastards) as brought you ‘financial derivative’- the real threat already here in form of deadly pollution as evidenced by such as the Gulf of Mexico and Fukushima, Daichi, and it a threat which merits interpretation in terms as indicated above by George W. Bush – as much as lips can move to autocue, or as a stenography reptilian attains meaning – and thus ‘propaganda catapulted’?

Not so much ‘out of the mouth of babes and sucklings’ as out of the ‘mouth of sock puppets and parasites’ emanates a fatal illusion?

-Because there a certain truth in the ‘Manichean’ statement likely read from autocue by ‘Dubya’; there a distinction between ‘black’ and ‘white’ made as can be most acutely politically represented in ‘Apartheid’ as moral abomination denying ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’ in favour of minority at the expense of majority, where such majority is ‘indigenous’, such the ‘economics’ of marginalisation as euphemism goes?

There a certain truth in as much as illusion can only be effective in so far as it stretches same, provided as an element in the mix, such the deadly darkness of ‘pragmatism’ context of ‘propaganda’ as would ‘spin’?

America is undergoing the final stages of ‘Apartheid’ right now?

In the case of South Africa Apartheid was founded upon ‘Color’, the non indigenous ‘Whites’ arrogated the rights to ownership of the land; in the case of Israel the non indigenous ‘Jews’ arrogated the rights to ownership of the land – only the small detail of ‘religion’ mattered as between, for example, rationalization of the Dutch Reformation Church concerning South Africa and ‘descendants of Ham’ – and between the rationalization of Talmudic Jewry and ‘Goyim’?

Now these small quarters are not entirely unaware of an emotively charged topic, and much the fear there would be thereof manufactured concerning the hurting of feelings and the traverse accordant of an ‘ideological minefield’ so made of as would intimidate against the very mentioning of; such the control and manipulation as would reflect upon ‘optimisation’ of a Panopticon; not the least being by way of ‘hegemony’ entailing the death of thought?

These small quarters are also aware of a disproportionate representation across the ‘five estates’ as prevails in the Western World, and as has made growing spread in to the rest of the World concerning the mere orthodoxy of Corporatism at least; context the death, such the racket, such the wars, such the ‘Meritocracy’, not to say ‘Democracy’ as would be twisted and manipulated beyond all recognition, to an epidemiology denying memory as much as the strength to dream; such that all left concerning the ontology is the nightmare of weakness?

These small quarters are aware of a ‘methodology’ which proceeds as to ‘hegemony’ concerning ‘orthodoxy’ as death by Punch or Stomp, indeed – and wish to ‘CounterPunch’ against same – in offering alternate for consideration.

Such the Liberty as would be unknown to Man thru the ‘quiet going into the night’ which the acceptance of orthodoxy; that cruel manipulation and control of consciousness which would have separation from sensibility as but the thin edge of the wedge driven in to cause of profit- and thereby a minimisation of the prophet which exists in all men as a potential of liberty and as a gift of Life which can truly facilitate the pursuit of happiness?

It: boils down to what ‘we’ will do to live as contributes to the ‘Zeitgeist’ or ‘spirit of the times’ as can become ironic under the determinations of Orthodoxy?

-At such juncture one should normally ‘introduce the obscene’ as would be buried by denial in building the case against orthodoxy as the death of thought, context of pathology.

One really should ‘wind up’ for the ‘CounterPunch’ as according to the ‘rules of the game’ – which rules are such ‘sense’ as rigged as a marked deck of cards or a bias in a wheel such the casino capitalism as materialism which would prevail in context of the reduction of ‘gamble’- and upon which no less than Voltaire evidenced perspicacity concerning the contemplation upon to point of ‘Genius’?

Whilst on the subject of Voltaire, and given the foregoing, a repetition of his particular insight as goes:

To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize’

is apposite?

Any event, by now there should be the realization that the ‘rules of the game’ are not accepted herein, as much as things which would be not allowed or classified ‘Taboo’ apropos are to be said or writ – and that, irony upon irony, there is even a state of being thankful such that consciousness can be elicited by a ‘turn of the screw too far’?

In as much as there can yet be ‘Surprise!’ as pleasant?

Evil contains within it the seeds of its own destruction, so it goes.

The real tragedy is that it also contains within it the seeds of destruction of Life as we know it, such the trek amongst the stars to be denied as an ‘evolutionary trajectory’ assassinated?

Context the 21st Century and we are not allowed to criticize those  as would propagate ‘Zionism’ as an Apartheid;  not permitted to examine the control and issue of ‘currency’ as of Mayer Amschel Rothschild concerning the ramifications ‘realpolitikal’; not allowed to admire such members of Humanity as happen to be Jewish as Gilad Atzmon whom Zionists would describe as a ‘self hating Jew’; we are supposed to fall supplicate at the feet of Zionist hegemony in finding Stephen Spielberg  to be a cinematographic giant or ‘master of the universe’  thru such works as ‘Schindler’s List’; supposed to be mere muppets as according to ‘Goldman Sachs’ – and above all, any association between the Talmud and the imposition of ‘Austerity’  verboten– or indeed parallel between the concentration camps of Nazi Germany and what is now occurring in Gaza?

This to say nought of the Nobel Prize winning ‘President’ who confesses to be good at killing?

Or indeed of the ‘West Bank’ spoken same breath as can say ‘Genocide’?

Is there continuity to corruption as manifest in  ‘Nobel’ award for Peace being made to Elie Wiesel, Henry Kissinger as much as there is a ‘meta language’ inherent within the alternative spelling: ‘nobel’ for ‘noble’, ‘profit’ for ‘prophet’?

Or indeed ‘shoa’ for ‘show’?

-We are not supposed to even mention, let alone question such matters because of the fear which is part and parcel of the necessary illusion – we are not supposed to even contemplate any ‘CounterPunch’ against  Orthodoxy – we are to be as some parallel of ‘Untermensch’ in going quietly into the night by way of acceptance of ‘austerity’ as ‘necessary’ – because there is no other way?

We are not to look at ‘over representation’; as much as we are to quietly conform to an arrogation; to accept the transfer of resources further from poor to rich under the manipulated and controlled perception of media so ‘apperceived’?

The tragic reality of the ‘USA’ is that it has been ‘hollowed out’ by a Corporatism prevalent since 1913 when mere Gangsters took over in a silent and deadly conspiracy as would be undocumented – or disappeared down the ‘memory hole’ of revisionism – and any and all consciousness concerning same would be realization of what it means to be an ‘enemy of the stateless’, subject to the crush of the velvet covered iron fist, or boot, indeed, though in the 21st Century as is, the velvet is becoming well and truly faded? (But that the crimson would cover up the gaps; and it a crimson born of bloody sufferance?)

We have almost reached the stage at which the curtains are pulled back as Frank Zappa envisioned – and the walls of brick are bare of all life as only a concentration camp can attain, where the concentration is to point of ‘death for death’s sake?’

-       as much as ‘bail out’ become ‘bail in’?

If only Obama knew, indeed, if only he were not such a ‘muppet’ as ‘conceived’ of by such as Goldman Sachs?

If only Obama were a President rather than a mere ‘CIA creation’?

There can be no ‘life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness’ in a Panopticon; much as the stateless are dark and deadly, much as they serve a false god -and Corporatism a bastard whereby made the identification of the interests of the state with corporate interests in the methodology of the construction of a ‘Panopticon profitable’?

Said methodology in the application is as a terminal disease – and the stage at which the USA is at is the 1% as Inner Party now controlling and manipulating the 15% towards the annihilation of the 84%?

Not long now, should such scheme continue, before the billions of rounds of hollow point ammunition are deployed – but the deeper darkness of such abrogation is even more silent and deadly as hatred of life goes Satanic – and thus accordant all life, liberty and any pursuit of happiness to be destroyed?

Because ‘Dubya’ was ‘right’ as a mere muppet, sock puppet or parasite can be – though he was on the wrong side as regards the CIA and terror; things have indeed become precipitate to the extent that you are either with Life or against it, and the wages of serving death are to be so accordant.

Do not look upon the 1% or the 15% with scorn, rather look upon them with pity, for theirs is the true death.  Earth will abide as another evolutionary trajectory will arise -and the sufferance will thereby be evidenced to have been necessary?

Truth is eternal, illusion is ephemeral and Life is a gift which transcends mere death so accordant?

We slept, and whilst we slept they ate our cookie, so it went.

Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten,
habe ich geschwiegen;
ich war ja kein Kommunist.

Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten,
habe ich geschwiegen;
ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.

Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten,
habe ich nicht protestiert;
ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.

Als sie die Juden holten,
habe ich geschwiegen;
ich war ja kein Jude.

Als sie mich holten,
gab es keinen mehr,
der protestieren konnte.[1]

(When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a Jew.)

The question which is being asked: ‘Are you an enemy of the stateless?’ – only it is not phrased so, such the triumph of illusion as demanded by an abominable merge?

As in temptation with action, so it went quietly into the night as a fellatio performed by the stateless as a bastard minority incapable of love, euphemised as ‘free market’?
