Starve The Monkeys
(Editor’s Note: Welcome back, Tom! Great to have another brilliant think-piece by you. Dear readers, I’ve heard it said that the banco-nationalists intend on bringing down Western Civilization, and intend on using radical Islam as their foot soldiers and enforcers. After reading this article, you might agree. However, remember that a state that secedes, establishes hard money and a militia, will never be subjugated by the one-worlders.)
The title of this article is inflammatory all by itself, isn’t it? And that’s the point. We, even, or especially, in the LibertySphere have been conditioned to think that Islam is the greatest threat to humanity. And, like fans at the big game, we think no further than the artificial conflict which plays out before our eyes every day. The recent rash of spam emails with funny little cartoons about the killing of Osama are but one aspect of this Big Game. Sure, our leaders on both sides of our non-existent political spectrum have been careful to hold Islam itself at arm’s length from blame, but that’s all part of the ground rules.
There’s no political campaign more effective and enduring than one that seems to spring from the individual soul. The campaign against Islam is the finest piece of political astroturf in history, and serves to unite even the most liberty-minded of us underneath the banner of a rapacious federal government we have learned, by experience, to dread and despise. “The lesser of two evils,” we console ourselves, while feeding our children into the jaws of the machine of lifetime servitude to mounting public debt, or in too many cases, youthful death or dismemberment fighting a fabricated enemy for the end purpose of increasing that debt.
I know, I know, we’re all aquiver about the ills of Islam, including abuses against women and children, beheadings, terroristic bombings, political imprisonment, the horrors of sharia law and the dreaded looming specter of Islamic anti-Semitism.
Let’s open our eyes a bit, and take a wider view, shall we? It won’t hurt a bit, and then you can go back to dreaming. If you’ve read any of what I’ve written before, and don’t yet understand the real font from which all evil in our world springs, then go ahead and drift off now. Nighty-night, ye noble fool.
OK, so now that it is once again us adults, let’s discuss some of these ills of Islam. First of all, the woman thing, as it were. This topic deserves an article all its own. I’m working on this one for later publication, as a kind of public-service self-help guide on the topic for Muslims, but here’s a preview: you Muslim boys need to give the virgin thing a rest, fellas. For most practical purposes, slightly used women in the here and now, given a sufficiently sweet disposition, are perfectly serviceable. And stop being so damn jumpy about skin. If some sweet thang gets you boys fussing at each other and makes you lose your religion, that’s your fault, not hers. Learn how to get ‘em under control using positive reinforcement, and it’ll all be good. I’ll toss you boys a few tips later, including that young bride concept, but that’s enough on the topic for now. Now back to our general audience.
Changing sexual gears, the rumors about Islamic homosexual pedophilia are indicative of defectives in positions of power, not Islam. While Islam does feature subjugation of women as an arguably negative point, I don’t think that homosexual pedophilia is in there anywhere. No, just like it isn’t in Catholicism, yet priestly pedophiles lurk behind every rectory, were we to believe the popular media about them. So, dear reader, either believe stories about both faiths, or believe none. Or, come to the conclusion that power attracts those who wish to exercise unchallenged control over their fellow man, and that pedophilia is the extreme of that character defect. For those Constitutionalists out there, you probably better not look too closely at the personal lives of a lot of Congressmen, either. It would be just as absurd to say that, because some prominent Muslims or Catholics are pedophiles, that pedophilia is a characteristic of Islam or Catholicism, as it would be to say that pedophelia is written into the Constitution because some Congressmen enjoy little boys on your dime.
Beheadings? They just lack our sophisticated execution machines. And, unlike Texas governors, those boys don’t mind getting their hands dirty personally. Sure, a lot of them wear masks or hoods while they do it, but when is the last time one of our own state executioners went on a talk-show circuit? Or for that matter, a DEA or DHS agent?
Next on the list is terroristic bombings. Let’s set aside the historical fact that the best way to get your people to demand sending their children off to war is to off a lot of their own countrymen in some grand spectacle. In the modern age, it helps to be able to get a lot of impromptu video from many angles, too. Another good tactic is to blow up a lot of the other guys to get them mad as hornets at you. Intelligence organs such as the CIA, MI-6, Mossad and the erstwhile KGB, got a lot of their budgets for just this kind of intrigue. Oh, sure, they may not get their hands dirty directly, but there’s always some psychopaths out there who can be talked into doing just about anything. And some of these psychopaths even think they’re doing the patriotic thing at the time.
Along these lines, the fact that suicide bombings have started giving way to remotely-detonated IEDs may be indicative of several things: a) the world’s anti-Muslim intelligence services are running out of self-destructive easily-manipulable psychopaths, yet lack the literal guts for the taking on the work themselves, b) the threshold of give-a-damn is too high now for these intelligence services to keep up the propaganda tempo any other way, c) or actual Islamists have gotten smart and are learning to build in organizational growth by sidestepping the virgin sales pitch. This last possibility is heartening, since it indicates a moderation of the most negative aspects of Islam in favor of a strategy which has some legs on it.
Oh, did the idea of the CIA, MI-6, or more particularly, Mossad, blowing up your baby soldier hero in Iraq or Afghanistan for political currency piss you off? That’s the point, of course, to make sure that your loss now requires you, just like teenage abortioner, to take an unthinking political stance for life lest ye live in unconsolable regret for your loss. What you should be pissed off about is the system which exists to grind all of our children into slaves, or at the very least, makes such an outcome possible or even probable. This possibility raises an even more disturbing specter which we’ll explore in a future article.
Or, did the idea of a maturing Islamist strategy upset you? Well, again, that’s the point of your having been propagandized. We, as a reliable pool of soldier-breeding voters, tend to want to classify our enemies as either evil or stupid, or some combination of these. The idea of an enemy learning and growing with a determined and winnable strategy is too upsetting to comprehend, isn’t it? Why do you think that is? Answer that for yourself, and you will understand all. Now back to the list, we’re almost to the good stuff.
Islamic political imprisonment? Talk to a tenth-year marijuana incarceree in one of our modern gulags-for-profit and ask him what he thinks about that. Try to pick a quiet spot out of the traffic flow near the front gate while they let actual murders, rapists and thieves out to keep the quotas up. Worse, we don’t even try to lock up any of the banco-terrorists who cause all of this crap in the first place.
Sharia law? Well, well, well. That is the big boogie-man, isn’t it? I admit, it is frightening to think that one would live in a system of laws dictated by religious beliefs rather than reason and respect for the individual. I have news for you: Jeffersonian freedom is long dead, and was never actually implemented even in his time.
The entire drug war, and the leverage it gives the government over everyone through the threat of unconditional property seizure on a whim, is self-imposed sharia law. But control of substances doesn’t stop, or even start, there. In many states you can’t buy liquor, or in some cases, any alcohol, on Sundays. Alcohol and tobacco have been heavily regulated and taxed since the inception of this land of the free; said taxation having been sold to the populace as necessary for moral reasons. Never mind that fermentation, a scientifically miraculous food-preservation gift from God, has been lauded since Biblical times as necessary for survival for millions in hard times, and good health for all in moderation. This could explain, of course, why such an important and universally accessible staple, in all its forms, is a necessary regulatory component in the plans of tyrants of all faiths and financial orientations.
Marriage, whether straight, gay or polygamous, is heavily regulated for reasons of faith. Yet, few stop to ask why relationships are the government’s realm in the first place. Again, control this necessary aspect of human life, and it becomes much easier to control the rest.
We have faith in a financial system that allows mass theft in front of our eyes; we defend this system thinking that it protects and benefits the long-dead small businessman. We believe that all healing comes in a pill or from a machine and punish the heretics with the regulatory power of the state. We believe that tossing an aluminum can into a green bin or a blue bin really makes a difference, and ostracize those who don’t care. We have faith in the official version of events, and demonize those who question. We believe that in a crisis the military and the police will be on the right side, and so attack with the most venomous bile any competing reasoned thought.
We have faith that universal female suffrage is good and noble. Yet, at any given point in time, including on Election Day, more than fifty percent of women are functionally insane as a natural and delightful consequence of biology. Huh. Maybe the Muslims have a point in not letting them vote. We see what happened to the country after that little sacrament started.
Most people in this country, including most of the self-labeled liberty-minded, revel in their own brand of sharia law, and act, in their own petty ways, as its street-level enforcers, searching about for stones at the slightest breach. This includes, of course, women of both genders who had their sacred ox gored by that previous paragraph.
Sharia law is already all around you, but one cannot recognize a prison if it is in the shape of one’s choices. You have been placed in a Judeo-Christian-Enviromento-Feminized cage, and then taught in school, at church and at work to make decisions which keep you safely within it. The political conflict which you think exists between major factions is merely a play to keep you blind to the reality of your imprisonment.
The only difference between the Islamic sharia cage and our Amerikan cage is that the shapes are different. You are caged, either way. It is entirely likely that many Muslims enjoy the comfort of their cage just as much as Christians enjoy theirs. If you can see the cage at all, and disdain either one, you are in a precious minority.
From our list of the perils of Islam, this leaves only Islamic anti-Semitism. The term anti-Semitism has become so laced with emotion and ingrained response that had the Holocaust not happened, the Ruling Classes, of any faith, would have paid dearly to cause it, so perfect is this shield from criticism. Permanently demonizing the Germans was an important side-effect. Coincidentally, the Germans are the only European race which had for millenia successfully withstood the same banco-Roman empire which murdered that upstart questioning Nazarene. What would Jesus do today? Bitch-slap some bankers (or in those times, “money changers”), of course, but I digress.
Each time anyone writes about the evils of banco-nationalism, the easiest and most effective deflection is to label the author as anti-Semitic. Similarly, any criticism of Israel or its establishment is brushed aside with the same ease.
The banco-nationalists have spent centuries and hundreds of millions of lives building their empire, now with intelligence and special operations forces completely outside the scope of what we think of as civilian control, and propaganda organs willing to spew whatever spin is needed to keep you fighting for them. They aren’t about to give all that up for something so reckless as truth.
The most important truth to understand, and the one that these financial terrorists fear the most, is that Islam is the only force on the face of the earth which has, as one of its core tenets, direct opposition to banco-nationalism.
That one reason is why Islam has been defined as our enemy. All the rest is spin.
Just as the Holocaust was such an effective propaganda coup that it was worth six million Jewish lives (a number highly in dispute. Ed.) for these banco-nationalist monsters to attain, the demonization of Islam is a similarly worthwhile investment. It is one thing to demonize the normally peaceful Germans. Most Germans, although they don’t mind opening a can of Peitscheesel when necessary, really just want to go back to being quietly efficient and rocking out to Rammstein. It is an entirely different thing to demonize Islamists, who have the capacity for manufacturing an endless stream of multi-national Truly Bad Guys, who know, in their heart, that, at least on the banco-nationalist issue, they are on the side of good.
Islam did not change the bankruptcy laws in 2005 and 2006 while simultaneously changing the financial lending rules. Islam did not then extend millions of personal and business borrowers a Hobson’s choice of escalating variable interest rates and balloon payments (many of which have yet to pop). Islam did not deliberately withhold lending in 2008 to then cause desperation and panic as millions of households and businesses struggled to provide the banco-nationalists their tons of flesh. Islam did not bankrupt and then cast thousands of families into the streets and destroy millions of jobs to increase their suffering and thus their political and financial malleability. Islam did not grievously wound or kill tens or hundreds of thousands of bread-winners through stress-related strokes, heart attacks and suicide or destroy their relationships. Islam did not then demand, and receive, a trillion dollars of tribute, or more, for the financial terrorists who deliberately precipitated this crisis in a time of presumed war against terror. Islam does not continue to profit even today on the suffering of people who had their lives, and the lives of their children, destroyed for the benefit of an evil few.
Islam did none of these things. Islam could not do any of these things.
Film at eleven, and coming soon to a neighborhood near you when more and more capable people in this country have had these banco-nationalist vermin steal everything they own. And then be forced to watch the mindless populace cheering those monsters on in the name of capitalism and free trade while waving the federally reserved flag. It only takes a whisper then. And whispers are all around. Whispers, from the right mouth to the correct ear, are a very powerful thing.
It is this same reactionary energy, which catapulted Marxists to power around the globe in the twentieth century, that will catapult Islamists to power around the globe in the twenty-first.
Stealing from people in the name of law, enslaving generations of children, (physically or fiscally) and hollowing out the souls of mankind for the profit of a wealthy few is a crime against humanity which must one day be adjudged. Marxists adjudged this disparity and established the Soviet Union, China, Cuba and too many other equally repressive regimes to list, on the ruins of wealthy places plundered by past banco-nationalists. That plunder was protected by first the power of the British Empire and then later the American. In either case the uniformed human tools of this oppression thought they were doing the right thing, while wrapping themselves in warm thoughts of home, mother and flag. As did I at one time.
This is the “Great Satan” of which mullahs speak; the unchecked ability of the powerful to steal and destroy lives, foreign and domestic, backed by millions of unthinking Americans willing to send their children into death or poverty, and armed with nuclear weapons.
We wonder why so many people can follow the siren song of Marxism or Islam. Islam is just more effective at recruiting those who have suffered injustice as their message rings more true. And, like the horrifying nano-bot of science fiction, it is self-replicating. For once you understand this one tenet of Islam, the absolute forbiddance of the banking industry, you learn how to whisper that magic phrase which rings true only in the ears of the distressed and victimized.
Which is why, if we stay the current course, Islam will probably win. Because the Great Satan has finally started devouring its own.
This is why I don’t fear Islam.
No, I fear something worse than Islam.
I fear a system which makes an Islamic takeover possible. I fear a system which made a banco-nationalist takeover possible. I fear a system which can be perverted by any group into inordinate power by a few. Islamic, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, atheist, it doesn’t matter. Religion doesn’t matter in this equation, either. Hetro, homo, metro or undecided. Monogamy, polygamy or autogamy, feminist or macho, misogynist or misandrist. Bankist or Marxist. Rightist or leftist, liberal or conservative, progressive or regressive. Hell’s Angels or Heaven’s Demons. Pick any “ist” you wish. Any one of them in control of this machine of death and accelerating poverty is a bad thing.
That system is the one first conceived by Hamilton’s masters to ensure that a Shay’s Rebellion would never again protect the rights of the individual against the wealthy. That system is the one propagandized by the Preamble and Bill of Rights to hide the unconstrained power which lurks within Presidential control of state and local militias, checked only by legislative and judicial branches, which are in turn checked by nothing meaningful, as even your vote is smothered by propaganda under the control of New York-based and banker-backed media.
That local or state militia is your only possible salvation. But the Constitution, which you mindlessly worship, hands that power to the President alone, specifically so that you would be powerless to resist the banco-nationalists who wrote it. Sooner or later, after hearing messages of well-meaning tolerance from our currently elected masters, our countrymen will elect Islamic congressmen, Islamic senators, or, incredibly, even an Islamic president. And those guys will appoint and confirm Islamic Supreme Court justices. Afterward, you will have only yourselves to blame for the outcome.
But could any Islamic horde or banco-nationalist lawyers stand against your local or state militias without the power of the national government to protect them, a protection for the powerful which reduces all of us to individuals denied the right to band together for self-defense?
Now imagine fifty, or a hundred, or a hundred and fifty such states and militias, populated by men who, as the Founding Fathers of the Revolution intended, stood against any enemies, foreign or especially domestic, who threatened them. Quite a difference from the system where the cowed masses comply with any affront their national government deems necessary, just as the Founding Lawyers of the Constitution intended. They might as well have been Founding Mullahs, so perfect is the central power against you. And so helpless will you be against the coming infection unless you kill the Constitutional vector first.
Wave your banco-nationalist flags, my friends, and wonder why each victory seems to march us closer to the Islamic doom you fear. Widespread secession is your only hope, but that is the one path from which you flee in your Constitutional faith. Deprived of central control and power, secession leaves banco-nationalism fatally wounded, and along with it the reactionary energy which fed Marxism, and which now feeds Islam.
Yes, there will be consequences to secession. Some states, such as Michigan, will fall to Islam. Similarly, some states will fall to Christianity. Others will be reduced to cesspools of wounded bankers feeding on each other at last. But each of these will be powerless to infect the rest. Some states will fail of their own accord and become pits of despair which the good will flee. A few will prosper and act as beacons to the others. Far better than this vast gray paste of compliance we currently enjoy, don’t you think?
It really is that simple. Our centralized national power, essential to banco-nationalist control of our lives and fortunes in order to secure the blessings of imaginary liberty for themselves and their posterity, not yours, is our biggest weakness in the face of encroaching Islam. To fight one, you must first destroy the other. And then we all win.
Still clinging to that “damned piece of paper”, as one of our favorite Islam-fighting Presidents put it? Then get ready to pledge allegiance to those “Stars and Crescents”.
