There’s been a lot of up in arms and hand wavy bickering in the American body politic, as of late. It has, as a matter of fact, pretty much consumed the entire political landscape, each of us hunkered down in our respective bunkers, flag thrust into the air, with more subdivisions than a pre-fab suburb.
We’ve gotten very adept at infighting as the core mission of what is fobbed off as democracy, these days.
We are told, constantly, that the reason we don’t have a pot to piss in is the fault of the other poor, dumb SOB up the road who hasn’t got a pot to piss in, either. This is, apparently, because they are black / white / brown / male / female / gay / straight / religious / atheistic, etc.
Heck, just pick any flavor of oppression or non-inclusivness that blows your skirt up and start throwing mud. It’s the American way.
It is also the result of a very long and expensive PR campaign waged by the people whose interests are best served by the hoi polloi barking at each other incessantly and having very little knowledge that the people waging this campaign even exist.
I’m going to spend some time on this web log by offering a few points of overlooked history that many of you may find less than credible. And that’s fine. But I can tell you this much,
- “America”, as on the label, never existed,
- We’re not so much a nation as we are a business plan. And a Jim Dandy one.
- War is not healthy for children and other living things, but it’s staggeringly profitable.
- Your bank notes are essentially bad IOUs.
- This is all quite useful to a small subset of people who own this joint.
- It gets worse.
This and other interesting notions will be explored here.
