LUV News on the Land of the Free

WHY THE 99% ARE PISSED OFF, IN A NUTSHELL

Two articles this morning support the efforts of a heroic Occupy Movement, with thousands arrested and tens of thousands sleeping in the streets of America, to point out our massive wealth disparity owing to corrupt government.

First, a piece showing the six children of Walmart’s founders have the same net wealth as the bottom thirty percent of wage earners in the Land of the free, heirs who live in luxury off the sweat of the 99%.

And a piece by Dina Rasor pointing out that Congress, on its knees kissing wealthy butt as its primary function today for the campaign dollars, has quit having hearings for the most part, which might embarrass the wealthy by showing how they plunder the public interest.

The official propaganda from our mass media talking heads has it that we are a “meritocracy.” What this apparently means is if you are homeless and hungry it is your fault for not inheriting well.

Mussolini didn’t like the word “fascism.” He preferred “corporate capitalism,” which is what we have. The fascists were known for their totalitarian police state, in Germany, Italy and Spain. Their mistake was to make it all too obvious.

Modern fascism is about the control of information. Get the masses away from reality and into “reality” TV, sitcoms, dramas, talent shows tightly controlled by a small number of corporations tied to defense cheating, polluting, bankstering and other criminal activity. Give them news that makes it appear our government is on the side of those seeking freedom and democracy, even as it crushes freedom and democracy everywhere it breaks out on the planet.

The thing most feared by the modern ruling fascists is an outbreak of democracy anywhere, but particularly here in the Land of the Free. This country’s function in the system is to provide enforcement of transnational corporate interests around the world through a thousand military bases and the world’s largest navy and air force. To do that, the American people must be completely controlled, with the world’s largest prison system and people, in the richest nation on earth, dying daily for a lack of health care.

And they nearly are entirely controlled, obediently voting Republican or Democrat as they are told, both groups convinced they are voting for the lesser evil, as the election winner immediately begins to sell out his followers for their effort. In the world’s most sophisticated propaganda system ever devised, most never understand they have been shaped into compliant zombies.

But a few are breaking out into the sanity that is the Occupy movement, free of the dogma, breaking their chains. That is what the police state is for, to put them back in their place. As the establishment gets more desperate, cracking down on city after city, the only chance the people have is to enlighten their brothers and sisters, because if it spreads to a critical mass, the fascism that is crushing us, will itself be crushed.  —Jack
