Welcome to The National Fiction- The Sunday Collage

Like many Americans, I was once consumed by the exertions of daily survival. Everyday, I would get up to go to work at 6 a.m. Often, I would get off at 6 p.m. In my little corner of the world, the only access to news was on the television at night and I didn't spend my time watching that. I was drinking beer and watching whatever sporting event was being broadcast on ESPN.

On the weekends, I was in Nevada playing poker, weekend motorcycle trips. What I am trying to convey here- is my utter lack of knowledge as it concerned world events up until late 2007. I just didn't care. I suspect that most Americans are the same way. They are busying living their lives, consumed with improving their lot- focused on work, raising kids, caring for their elders, getting by. 

There is this national assumption, this archaic and sometimes false belief, that our government works mostly in our best interests. So we tend to ignore government because we kind of trust it- and rarely does it ever impact us directly or adversely. We assume also- that our leaders would not deceive us. Why would they? One of the symptoms of government and politics are the "party zealots." These are the people who always think they know your agenda- if you aren't part of their party- you must be from the enemy party. They adamantly defend their opinions while ridiculing yours. They can't see the forest because the trees are in the way. Even though 50 years of wretched government has left us bankrupt- they are still busy fixing blame on the other party, George Bush, Jimmy Carter. I simply dismiss these types. They have bought into the national fiction. The ridiculous notion that it is the "other party" which has caused all of our problems. Two wonderful examples, both of which I read daily, are the Huffington Post for liberals, and Ace of Spades for conservatives. These two groups are so heavily invested in our side is right that they simply will not entertain any thought- that they might be wrong. They kind of remind me of polarized Islamic extremists sans Mohammad. They fight a war without end. 

They are a large part of the national fiction. The grand distraction which seeks to divide us and keep us fighting. The real problem that we all face is not a political one but rather, a moral one that is far more mathematical than philosophical. It is evolutionary and historically, just as predictable as gravity. It is the war between the haves and the have nots. That is the real war in a capitalistic society where your interests can be protected and the other guy's interests diminished or eliminated- just so long as you have the resources to cast the higher bid. 

That's why the bankers own this place. They cast the highest bid. Not only are they in control of the money supply, it is that very money supply with which they use to buy Congressional and Presidential support. They can create money without restraint. They own your land, your house, your car, your credit rating. They own you. You cannot compete. The bankers own this place. They are the 1%. The rest of us are disposable. We are the hoi polloi, dutifully sending our money in.

Imagine playing Monopoly against a banker who can print as much money as he wants. No matter how many times he lands on your hotel on Boardwalk- it means nothing to him. He simply pays the rent and creates more money with which to pay you the next time he lands on Boardwalk. You can never beat him because his money supply is infinite and yours isn't. So like the forces of gravity the game becomes predictable. You will lose. There is no other possible outcome. 

Now all of that might be depressing and it certainly is- to discover that you are really nothing special- just another banker's slave. Until such point that awareness comes to you. 

President John F. Kennedy, while hosting a reception for 42 Nobel laureates, was quoted as saying that this was the greatest gathering of intellect at the White House since those days when Thomas Jefferson dined alone. Jefferson was a polymath, a genius in many subjects. This is what he had to say about central banking.

Thomas Jefferson

“The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Principles and form of our Constitution. I am an Enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered. ”

The national fiction is that we are fighting some political war between two political factions. Nothing could be further from the truth. 

We are fighting bankers. They have stolen the wealth of this country and they are eroding our way of life. Little by little, with the aid of a complicit Congress who sold out to them long ago and which now relies on them for re-election, the bankers are more than happy to let you think this is some Republican v Democrat issue. It is not. It is about keeping power, control, and wealth. The bankers have control of your Congress, your President, they control corporations and the media, they finance every war and spending bill, they even own the municipalities you live in through the issuance of loans and municipal bonds. They own you and your work product with interest- and your only defense is to accept that reality. Until such time that millions of Americans suddenly wake up and destroy this central banking nightmare- Americans will be engaged in the national fiction- that this is somehow all the fault of conservative or liberal beliefs and practices. Of party politics. I respectfully submit that politics is not the problem. It never has been. Politics is just the most obvious symptom of a problem Thomas Jefferson saw long ago. Politics is a distraction that the bankers are more than happy to let you continue to believe in. 

Because it works.

The problem with politicians is that you have 99% of them making the other 1% look bad. If these fuckers truly wanted to help me, they could start by getting the hell out of my life. I'm not a dog in need of a master, a retard in need of care or a child needing guidance. I am an adult capable of living his own life, making his own choices, and living with the consequences of those choices. These fucking politicians can't even govern their own lives, yet I am supposed to trust them to govern mine. Oh, really? Fuck the politicians. They suck the cocks of the big monied interests while pretending to give a damn about the little people who put them there and whom they couldn't give a damn about. Fuck the Democrats, fuck the Republicans, fuck them all*. I despise politicians almost as much as pedophiles, and even then I'm not too sure.

* Of course, I will make exceptions for Libertarians, since they love their country while suspecting (if not despising) their government, which is the way it should be.

Yeah, fuck the banksters too. Especially the banksters. Sociopathic cocksuckers who pollute the gene pool and are of no good, not even for compost. Fuck them especially.

Sorry, Brian. Didn't mean to shit all over your blog with my profanity laced comments above. I just don't like banksters or politicians. The banksters are like the masters of old who own the whole plantation, the politicians are the house niggers (uncle Toms) who serve the banksters, and we the little people are the field niggers who sweat, bleed and die serving the other two classes and keeping damned little for ourselves.

Brian said...

That's perfectly fine. I am certainly no stranger to profanity- I like it.

The more I study and read- the more I realize this is all just the same ol same ol...class warfare dressed up to look like something else. It's all just bullshit so that the haves can distract the have nots and lord over them- by stealing their money.

Nothing exemplifies that more than compulsory insurance where the oligarch actually gets laws passed forcing you to give them their wealth. Nothing illustrates the concept, or the truth, better than that.

I just finnished reading the Obama Care bill. It had a lot of bullshit about a lot of non health related issues. I was hoping to find where and how I could qualify for asshole reconstruction surgery. The fucking that I have taken from the bankers and the government has left me with a bit of a gape.

Brian said...

Lmao. I am actually considering taking Obamacare this year. I am thinking of pulling a fast one. Taking it, getting a bunch of tests and my knees scoped, and dropping it. They'll probably come and drag me off to Leavenworth like that poor rodeo clown growing dope in Iowa and getting 20 years.

99.9% of politicians of any stripe should be burned at the stake. Probably 110% for the bankers. But what would you replace them with? Gold? I heard Ft. Knox has been looted already.

Maybe some day we'll have something like Bitcoin that really is a currency that the banksters and the governments can't control. A pipedream? Prbably!

Brian said...

There is a lot of evidence that bankers have been manipulating bitcoin and precious metals to keep people from investing in them If Americans ever find out that all of our gold was sold off long ago, the shtf.

Funny you should mention the game Monopoly, Brian, since that game is a perfect template, I think, for how the larger world is run. In fact, isn't a Federal Reserve note nothing more than monopoly money when you think about it? An IOU-nothing foisted on us by a private banking cartel? We're all just slaves to the banksters, using their money (a great tool for controlling and subjugating the masses), and living in their world. Man, I need a beer. I've just depressed myself.

Ha! When they drag out the guillotines for these greedy pricks, imagine how uplifting that would be!

You're right, Brian, and thank you for opening my eyes. Our society is one of exploitation and class warfare, in which one group lords it over the rest. It has always been that way, it is that way now, and it likely will be that way far into the future. What a lousy species we are.
