Hello my fellow Americans, Captain Obvious here – reporting live from behind the enemy lines erected on 9/11/2001 by a criminal junta funded, it seems, by multiple sovereign fiduciary entities for which it has become a capital crime to reveal the truth about in a court of law. That would be a capital crime punishable by death sans judge or jury of one’s peers.
Hillary Clinton recently stated that Wikileaks has attacked the international community. To those who prevaricate for a living, the truth seems the ultimate weapon of assault.
So how did this pathetic reversal of contemporary reality take place?
In 1947, the Nazi spy contingent we, the United States of America, saved from the hangman’s noose at Nuremburg convinced our spies that the “national security state” was more than a German war tactic; it was a key strategy for building any empire.
You believe you know of truth. I believe I know of truth, yet it is entirely plausible and often possible for our truths to be counter-opposed while some other “third” truth – the one on which the known universe depends – overlaps neither of our cherished beliefs.
This is an obvious fact: the plural of “anecdote” is not “data.” Here is another: two belief systems that oppose one another cannot both be true; one or both of our sacred cows represents anecdotal information. This is how we come to understand that it has never been the capital “T” truth from which we humans have taken the actions of our lived lives; we have always operated from our beliefs about the truth.
Here is a considered opinion based upon my analysis of my personal experiences in life: the longer I allow two (or more) counter-opposite (dissonant) belief systems to occupy my thinking, the more likely it is that I will become unable to discriminate truth from falsehood with respect to any of the contexts addressed by the set-union of all of my belief systems. In the South we lovingly refer to this state of affairs as, “you cain’t fix the s*t in yer head with the s*t in yer head.”
In other words, dissonance tolerated is a multiplier of delusion. Not an altogether bad condition, unless your belief happens to be that the number of checks in your checkbook is any indication of the balance in your checking account. Or that you can continue to pound square pegs into round holes using only bigger hammers to make your anecdotes conform to your precious data regarding holes.
Here’s another considered opinion about holes based upon my analysis of personal experience: when I find that I am in one, I should drop my shovel. I have been told that this is the First Rule of Holes.
Now we have the established authority of the state condemning a non-governmental entity for some form of “terrorism” because it dared to reveal the concealed truth reserved for the eyes and ears of the national security state. Forgive me if I am missing the obvious here, but what is more sovereign in human experience than the truth of the matter? Does not our notional system of justice seek to determine, through the application of debate and academic rigor, the relevant components of truth to be applied in a given context? On whose “side” should justice serve if not the side that would claim affinity with all of the principles that allow us to breathe air into our lungs, spin stably in an orbit about a life-giving star, or communicate thoughts from one person to another?
Has someone on dear Hillary’s X-mas list forgotten the First Rule of Holes? Do we really wish to dig ourselves all the way to China? Is it possible to fall out of the “Stupid Tree” and hit absolutely every single branch on the way down?
We already know what became of a people who permitted their notional system of justice to serve deceit, delusion and falsehood: they became oligarchies in the service of inculcated hatred and ignorance. The oligarchs of corporatism – the fascists – became the undoing of the natural evolutionary selection process of ”increased fitness” under which all life forms appear to operate. And they committed this error while committing unspeakable atrocities against an increasing number of political minorities that sought to oppose or temper the head-long rush of these oligarchs into an abyss of amorality and unethical behavior. The civilized society we sought to defend our families, friends and way of life with had become just another jungle where morality and ethical principles would always take a backseat to the need to breathe, drink, eat, procreate and take our “comforts.” One can claim efficiency as a key virtue of the oligarchy that was Nazi Germany, but suicide is likewise as efficient. Suicide ends suffering, does it not? What good is living a life that must always end with the realization that one has lost absolutely everything that they have ever come to value? Surely suicide represents the most efficient course of action to take when faced with the reality of a human experience, no? Be logical, will you! Think linearly and clearly, like a lizard, for once in your demonstrably miserable, when not delusional, existence!
Fascism – capitalism by another name – has proven itself to be the murderer of civilization using this bird-brained truncheon of human oligarchy as its centerpiece. This is the truth that Hillary Clinton and all of the media-soaked oligarchs wish to keep secret from you and me. This is the truth that they fear we will all flock to because it is, in fact, the truth and as such knows only of itself and its creations.
Become a whole person again by never allowing yourself to be taken as separate from that which fundamentally sustains your very existence. Know the truth and you will know yourself because that must be what you are made of.
Until next time, Captain Obvious signing off.
