Of Political Tarts with Hearts and the Globalist Boot of Orthodoxy

I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men.

– POTUS 28 Woodrow Wilson

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

– POTUS 34 Dwight D. Eisenhower

The concept of ‘tart with a heart’ alludes as much to female prostitution sexual (‘hooker’) as it does to male (‘gigolo’) – yet pales into insignificance regardless of gender such the moral degeneration befitting the consideration of Dante Alighieri when ‘prostitution political’ involved?

For which the greater degeneracy: the selling of ‘cunt’ or ‘cock’ in the fragmentation pathological whereby a multitude of individual acts of assassination of sexual love are carried out in privacy as commercial transaction, or in ‘public’ such the pornography, such the career made in the ‘hustle of a buck’; or, in the selling of ‘mind and promise’, wherein a multitude of individual acts of assassination of ‘politics’ carried out in privacy, as in ‘behind the scenes’, or to ‘hidden agenda’ – as mere scheme such the career public made as prostitute ideological – as Capitalist Democracy has come to ‘mainstream’, such the fragmentation, such the hegemony pathological entailed?

In the words of the Stranglers paraphrased concerning the Western World:

‘No more (political) heroes any more’?

– Corporatism as an orthodoxy ‘exists’ to destroy any potentiality of the ‘heroic’ in as much as it subsists to destroy Life: and all ‘we’ as creatures outside (see below) in the 21st Century Western World left with are ‘confessions’ such as the above; which born of a remaining sense of ‘memento mori’ – as in the above given as ‘freebie’ – to some ‘it a swan-song sweetie’ testimony to Humanity remaining in ‘hollow men’, as Eliot put it?

Swan-songs born of a sense of regret for all the sacrifices made to the pragmatism which corruption in exchange for the illusion of power and the vanity served by publicity as a pedestal crafted – existent as some executioners block which looms ‘high’ such the illusion: crafted by way of ‘wood’ and ‘money shot’ – such the propaganda as would deny a minority of ‘inner party’ as Orwell put it, being served by an ‘outer party’ of prostitutes who yet have shreds of Humanity – whom yet ‘tarts with hearts’, such the pornography?

Such the Moritaten, so it goes?

To political pornography of ‘Corporatist Gangster’, such the one dimensionality, as in: money shot the ‘sound bite’; the ‘wood’ the sincerity in the delivery which states as Hunter S. Thomson put it so clearly:

‘You can trust me, I’m not like the others’?

At outset this small article there contemplation these small quarters of giving quote by POTUS 35 alongside the above ‘swan-song confessions’.

Then, there the memory of what JFK endured for his refusal to be yet another failure at Presidential level in trying to ‘step up to the plate’; the memory of that fateful day for the Western World when he was assassinated, brain material blown out of the back of his head, in as much as, at a most pragmatic level, there ceased to be any continuation of intimation of ‘secret society’ at the level of potential meme – and all thoughts of alternative control and issue of ‘currency’ by way of executive order 11110 replaced in a coup whereby Lyndon Johnson gave the Stateless the military war they lusted after, and millions died to cause of such racket – as the CIA went on to ‘thrive’ – as opposed to being splintered into a thousand pieces and scattered to the winds ?

So it goes.

To the point where POTUS 44 no more than a mere CIA creation?

The ‘political tarts’ we of the Western World in the 21st Century are left with as a product of mere illusion crafted in the service of resources transfer or service of class are, so accordant, so euphemized, possessed of very small hearts, if any, such the filtration of ‘machine politics’ boosted by a Corporatism on genetically modified steroids as reflected in the transfer of resources manifest; whereby demonstrably the poor grow poorer and more numerous as the rich grow richer as a shrinking minority?

And the concomitants of same stink to high heaven under abrogation?

Such the fucking bastard of austerity, such the cruelty manifest of ‘illumination luciferian’ whence fruit permitted to wither on the vine while real people starve. The pornography which made by the Globalist Boot of moral economics and Capitalist Democracy reduced to mere orthodoxy under guise of ‘free market’ marginalizes the majority of Humanity as ‘surplus’, such the pathology as the Stateless are driven utilitarian as pathological to destroy ‘Brotherhood’ in replacing it with a truly austere vision of homogeneity to a modified concept of ‘sovereignty’ in which; to paraphrase the National Socialist Vision of the Third Reich; there to be:

‘One Currency, one ‘People’ and one Oligarchy to rule over all’

-For this is the ‘vile’ bastard bitch on heat again which orthodox boot of Globalization would ‘realize’ is, is it not, as would stamp the face of Man to oblivion in it’s rage, in its pathology of ‘more!’ as would lead to nothing, such the evil put ‘Kurt’, so it goes?

(Do not rejoice in his defeat, you men. For though the world has stood up and stopped the bastard, the bitch that bore him is in heat again. Kurt Weill. 1941)

For this the love of money as corrupts in being the root?

If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever. Orwell.

Is not surveying the ramifications of Globalization in the Western World contemporaneous a depressing exercise in as much as it illustrates the abrogation of consciousness at the pragmatic level which ‘Dystopia’ delineates?

To paraphrase Voltaire:

‘If the Devil did not exist it would be necessary to invent him’?

For the devil is indeed in the very detail – of the human sufferance which ‘Capitalist Democracy’ continues to enshrine in its widening embrace of neo liberal orthodoxy represented geopolitical by the ‘Western World’ – and such sufferance not without ecological aspect?
The devil as a terminal disease as would cut short an evolutionary trajectory to point of a pandemic of illness, and all those stateless bastards as would sign up for the illusion of ‘power’ should be aware of such fatality as ‘Ecocide’ entails as a long term objective; spite of the short term ‘profit’ promising to temporarily stuff all orifices (of the 16%) material and nepotistic?

The question which much be asked of such ‘swan-songs’ by political ‘tarts with hearts’, as evidenced in the quotes above from Woodrow Wilson and Dwight D. Eisenhower, is:

‘In such knowledge, why did you do as you did?’

The answer to such question lies within the fact that political tarts with hearts are ‘selected’; much as a victim is selected by an abuser, such the ‘stalking of the soul‘, much as the whole process of Capitalist Democracy the Western World in which a ‘two horse race’ prevails accordant is but expression of the hands of a few men or of a military industrial complex (In America ‘Democrat/Republican’, in the UK ‘Conservative/New Labour’, In Germany (Social Democratic Party of Germany/Christian Democratic Unity), France (Socialist Party/The Republicans), Italy (Democratic Party/People of Freedom), Spain (Peoples Party (PP)/ Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) and so on ‘geopolitical’ to point of the ‘Western World’ ?

As Lenin put it concisely concerning such pragmatism as Corporatism has come to demand:

‘The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves’

And this is what Corporatism in the service of Globalization in the 21st Century has become, such the Western World so degenerated?

Democracy has become, alas, an illusion in the Western World, much as thought has come in the mainstream media as Corporatist, to die to call of a whistle – and gun at back or machine gun at front such the trench as madness demands ‘Victory!’ and a few feet of mud gained thus seen, under cause of the war which Orthodox theater; and here the prescience of Orwell must surely be acknowledged? The ‘contenders’ for political power as we are permitted to consider, such the ‘currency’, are no more than controlled and manipulated tarts; ‘victims’ of an abuse which become systemic at the level of the institutionalized, such the pathology become rampant – as the transfer of resources demonstrates?

For the Gini Coefficient is a vital measure of the political metabolism, is it not?

In itself – and here consideration of ‘benign dictatorship’; this no bad thing?

For: to get to the core of the issue of good/bad context of ‘moral economics’ one must look at the detail; at the sufferance inflicted upon the majority which in the 21st Century Western World has come to be ‘euphemized’ as necessary austerity?

Necessary austerity polymorphous, and as the descending ‘silver fog’: a shroud upon the assassinated body of Humanity as a potentiality by the Corporate body to the ‘bottom line’ which ‘zombie’ like in its absurd reduction as tragedy of ‘Cui Bono’ – wherein ‘profit’; means death?

It, the sound bite in an echo chamber of the Corporatist line which tells you what is good form of ‘money shot’; it, the ‘wood’ of sincerity of a consummate political performer who can sell a line to a duplicity which rapes the trusting majority, sees them as no more than mere ‘rubes’; or as the ‘boys’ in Goldman Sachs put it; ‘muppets’?

There is another election, or rather pageant, coming in America, destined to be the most expensive in the history of the Western World thus far. The political tarts with hearts are being lined up á la Corporatism, and the ‘opposition’ led by a media mainstream as reflects the application of concentrated power as the hands of a few men masturbating over greater profit, or a military industrial complex waging war as must to such greed become need. Looking around impartial the Western World, at the leaders of same under process of Democracy, this a frightening exercise which calls in to question the distinction between ‘tart with a heart’ and ‘heartless whore’ in context of political prostitution?

From the Nobel peace prize winning Barack Obama to the Bullingdon Club David Cameron -whose greatest moment of blind whoredom perchance the Lord Mayors Banquet of 2013 where in front of a gold plated lectern, and dressed in finery, he lectured on the need for austerity; to Francoise Hollande as a French socialist who dislikes the poor, to Angela Merkel so willing to screw the Greeks; and indeed to Alexis Tsipras willing to accept another bailout despite the 63% of his electorate who said ‘No More!’?

This, before we even begin to consider the ‘apparatchiks’ of the European Union as but a harvest of ‘political tarts’?

The Western World has come to be dominated by what American ‘tarts with hearts’ represented by POTUS 28 and 34 warned against, alas?

Orthodoxy the death of thought, indeed, much as phrases come into ‘circulation’ as expression concomitant of the permit to control and issue currency. Phrases such as ‘Holocaust’ or ‘Conspiracy theorist’ reflect the attempt to control and manipulate thought to point of destruction; much as there can be full presstitute ‘demonization’ to Corporate line – and these concepts necessary to the austerity of the 21st Century Western World as made ‘mainstream’ by the concentrated accumulation of power that is Corporatism – as means death to ‘Democracy’?

The Western World in the 21st Century is in darkness to an unprecedented level of denial promulgated by ‘Money Inc’; warfare is rampant as much as darkness polymorphous, as much as austerity necessary such the tragedy of the abrogation?

This small article does not seek to lay the blame for such darkness entirely on the ‘political tarts’ as constitute but part of the 15% ‘Outer Party’. It is, at the end of the day, the 1% as an oligarchic collective who drive the racket of ‘resource transfer’ such the euphemism as would deny so much sufferance, thru the deployment of resources as creates the tragedy of ‘tarts with hearts’ as an optimal investment in the 15% – so much better than hiding the expropriated under the bed?

For when one looks closely at Politicians of the Western World in the early 21st Century as but puppets of the expropriating l 1%, one cannot but remember the words of Orwell:

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?

It is good to be a ‘creature outside’, is it not?

– Albeit an ‘Animal Farm’ made of the ‘Western World’?
