Purgatory Punishment exists for real. In this Life, I have uncovered the Hell Mouth, which leads into the Mine Pit of Frigid Darkness, Black Fog, and Dank Corpse Death. Where might you ask?
I now live deep inside of the Amerikan Empire, ruled under the Greatest Sociopaths of World History. Even more ominous, I reside inside the Monster right before its Most Terrible Decline and Fall. I don’t possess a second passport, my roots are pure Americana, born and bred.
Born to Die Hard in an Empire where the Inmates Rule the Asylum, and where most citizens have resigned themselves as cowering, shameless subjects. Ignorance and Cowardice rule, while those Twin Furies lie concealed behind curtains, buried deep within the walls of the Amerikan Nightmare on Hell Street.
I have nowhere to go. However, like millions of my fellow Americans, I do own guns, and as a veteran of the American Armed Forces, I do know how to use them. I forsake violence, and will always reject any invitation for violent escalation – nor do I visit dive, trashy bar establishments anyway – but I am not a pacifist either. There does come a time to stand and fight. Where the honor of both humanity and sanity are at stake, we must Lay It On the Line. Blood Shall Gush Forth. Future Tidings are not looking good.
Until the Next Major Civil Combat, Regular American Citizens must wait it out. The political-economic elites who rule over us have already pointed the loaded guns. They are aiming towards us – and ever so closer. We are clearly within in sighting range. Targets R US is in order.
The Amerikan Empire shall reap what it has sown. This Colonial-Settler Excrescence will experience its sordid karma. Its historical crimes have included mass genocide, mass extermination, mass murder, mass torture, mass poverty, mass misery and mass imprisonment on a global scale.
Yet this same Empire has so deftly covered up its historical crimes. The sinister discoveries of past criminality have yet to disappear. The whole world knows the atrocities of Fascism and Communism. How many people know about the Actual History of the Amerikan Imperial Monster?
The Up and Coming American Civil War is slowly escalating, and quicker than we think. It will not be anything like the Official US Civil War, or The War of Northern Aggression, (depending on what region you live in). During that particular war in the 1860s, two opposing American Governments, the Union and the Confederacy fought each other to utter destruction. And yes, the Confederacy destroyed the Union too, and killed many, many Yankees. The Yankees won the final day on the military battlefield – but the Southland triumphed over the American Cultural Soul.
Nor will the Upcoming Civil Battlefield function like the English Civil War during the decade of the 1640s. Within that Civil War Period two opposing ideological-political factions, representing the actual British State of the seventeenth-century, utterly wrecked each other. The Parliamentary Puritan Roundheads struggled against the Royalty Supporting, Anglican Confessional Cavaliers. The Puritans won – but at the price of a murderous fanatic who seized power, the Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell. After his death, Britain returned to a Constitutional Monarchy – as it has existed since those troublesome times.
The New and Improved Civil Battlefield will not copy the antics of the French Civil War in 1871, where an ideological Leftist coup d’etat, Les Communards, bravely fought at the barricades against the collaborationist French State-Defeated Army of Sedan under its notorious Leader, Adolphe Thiers. In that Civil War, the Collaborationists literally hunted down the Communards after they had already lost the street battles. The Collaborationists celebrated the slaughter. Those same ‘political leaders’ would eventually send around a million young French men to their bad deaths in World War I.
And finally, Our Prescient Civil Struggle will definitely not coincide with the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s. During that Nasty Spectacle, a Military-Clerical-Falange, (Spanish Fascist) Junta united to overthrow a legitimately elected, Left-Reformist Government, (turning more Communist during the war). This Civil War transformed into a War of Extermination, where Los Nacionalistas sought to both physically and culturally liquidate their political enemies, Los Republicanos. The Nationalists won the war and were able to murder lots of their political enemies. Yet, the victors permanently brutalized Spanish society and culture. Nowadays, even the Spanish flag colors of red, orange and yellow make many Spanish cringe.
The imminent civil conflict prepared for the American population will revamp the Amerikan Imperial Super State into the Amerikan Nightmare on Hell Street.
The Amerikan State will transform into a legal civilian jailer-police-paramilitary apparatus joined to the hip with a military-spy death squad regime. The bureaucratic bosses will physically destroy the reckless troublemakers, of whatever political stripes, whether Anarchist-Anti-Fascist, Communist-Anti-Fascist, Leftist-Anti-Fascist, Constitutionalist Militia-Anti-Fascist or Conservative-Anti-Fascist. This political-elite junta will also utilize mass imprisonment-internment camps for the cowardly troublemakers. Our Leaders rightly understand that all of the enemy ideological factions will never join together and transform into a united, disciplined military force. The killing-imprisoning machine will work just fine.
The Amerikan Imperial-State Imperial Apparatus will completely vampirize its unwary citizens: politically, militarily, economically, socially and culturally. Any threatening resistance will result in the bad death for many unfortunate victims, or whatever enemies singled out for destruction. The nasty repression will serve as a Valuable Lesson. Did we think that all of that CIA-DIA death squad-counterinsurgency training at the School of the Americas, (WHINSEC), in Indochina, in Latin America, and in Mesopotamia was only for the poor, unfortunate brown skins who often did not speak English?
The US Military has always been preparing for the domestic versions too. Actually, we are already half way there. Some contemporaneous examples should suffice.
The Amerikan Empire of Sociopaths has never been able to drop the Slavery Habit – nor will it ever drop its Love for the Wage Slave Mode of Capitalist Production. No, They can’t kidnap millions of Africans and work them to death anymore – but they can use African prisoners – and whoever else that fits inside their Endless Enemies Lists. The writer of this essay and my readers are of course included in the List.
In fact, our Political-Economic Masters of Sleaze and Swindle, love Wage Slavery so much that they have perfected a Marvelous Capitalist System of Scam and Double-Cross: Capitalist Fascism, or Crony Capitalism, or better yet, Corporatism.
Only the Global Corporate Monopolies posses the full legal rights and special privileges in paying less taxes – while doing whatever the hell they want. Freedom for them and their political cronies. Misery, Homelessness, Poverty and Prison for the rest of us economic losers.
Meanwhile, millions of hopelessly unemployed and underemployed men, such as myself, wander lost on the continent. I am not the only unemployed PhD, ex-veteran with No Future. There are Millions of Us Standing-Arounders. Some of us, Economic Losers, are Armed and Vigilant however.
There are also a few desperate men who Hope and Wish that a Casino Mogul-Media-Carnival Barker can somehow Stem The Tide of Imperial Decline. Make them believe in the Amerikan Nightmare, like the Tooth Fairy-Jack O’Lantern-Santa Claus-Easter Bunny Closed Door Club. The ironic tale yet continues…
Many anxious small business owners have transformed into Little Executioners. They pay miserable wages, and only hire the wage slaves that exemplify the worst vices of dishonor, cowardice and ignorance. This work searching subset comprises desperate-recent immigrants, workers without legal papers, teenagers with no social or economic capital, the elderly who cannot survive on their SS checks, the female poor who have to double dip from Welfare and EBT, and the Massive Reserve Army of Underemployed who hate themselves for the crime of not having any job.
Most of the available ‘jobs,’ or crap work, represent contingent, part-time, on-call, internship, training period, hire and fire at will positions. The wages of most full-time employees, within the Social and Leisure Services, cannot even sufficiently pay for all of the overdue Rent, Utilities, Past Debts, Sales Taxes, Annual Taxes, Additional Fees, Miscellaneous Fines, Vehicle Registrations, Vehicle payments, Forced Insurance Schemes, etcetera and etcetera.
Accessing any low wage, low paying, lowlife job is actually quite hard. Even dishwashers must fill out fifteen page applications that ask for a full job history since the age of 16, and might ask about any past indiscretions, inclusive of past traffic tickets from one’s entire life cycle. Did most small business owners copy their employee vetting strategies from the FBI system?
The hobos, bums, buskers, beggars, panhandlers, street junkies, wiseguys, petty criminals and travelers are on to something. They are smarter than us CV carrying bums who have to continually sell ourselves on the ‘Labor Market.’ They rightly know that the System is rigged completely against us.
Why give up one’s precious time, energy, strength, fleeting youth, and self-respect for some petty sociopath who hates our mortal guts, only wants to profit off our lives – and who will fire us for whatever flimsy reason? Why not just die on the street like so many other indigents and stray animals? Are we not all heading for the Hour of Our Deaths?
And still millions of deluded Americans despairingly grab onto the Greatest Lie of All – the American Hard Work Ethic, or the Pick Up Yourself by Your Own Bootstraps, or Hard Work and Intuition Pays Off in the End, or the Dream to Success is just over the Mountains of Difficulties, or Whatever Amerikan Nightmare on Hell Street has to offer.
Trying to find a half-decent apartment in an Amerikan medium to large city is actually more cumbersome than stumbling across a crap, wage slave job. The Mean Ass, Real Estate slumlord-Property Pimp Management fiends hold steel fisted, tight controls over most available housing. A good proportion of our Low Wages fill their Profit Pockets – and they all know this. In order to move in, renters often need first and last month rents, and the security deposit plus any other fees a Slumlord could invent. The Market is always Their Market.
Even some so-called Artist-Loft-Condos now have issues with rodents, insects and malfunctioning units on a regular basis. Out West, our last option is renting in small cities and in small towns. But you had better have a vehicle with which to move around, and you will spend money on gas, repairs and other vehicle taxes.
The Supermarket Shelved, Canned Shit only gets worse – and even more expensive. The stuff rots inside of our intestines even before the Expiration Dates. We should have compassion for our sick and gluttonous brothers, meaning the obese and fat ones. Eating ‘green organic’ costs money. Trendy Food Coops often charge a lot more than many Supermarket Corporations.
Medical and Educational Scam For-profit Complexes ante up their Rebated Monthly Charges, from Service Fees to Carbon Footprint Tax. Their Price Hikes follow the Venezuelan Rate of Inflation, between one hundred and two hundred percent.
The Most Favored Monopoly Statuses of administrators and bureaucratic hacks, generally found in Higher Ed Universities, Strip Mining Operations, Poisonous Energy, Genetically Modified laced Foods, and Eternal War Contractors, are still raking in those Outstanding Shareholder Profits.
The other Seven Figure Salary Stealing, Executive Box Seat Teams, implying the FIRE industries: Financial, Insurance, and Real Estate, (where no useful work ever gets accomplished), jealously Stand Guard. Their Unearned Privilege, Corporate Welfare, keeps the Stasis going, regardless of who enters the Top Boss Office Spot.
This Bizarre Cult of Elite Americana loves Endless War, but they won’t send their kids to the military in order to Die in Such and Such Wars. They also love the Ideology of Multiculturalism, yet they will never send their kids to attend those same State Schools with the poorer Social Degenerates.
When I was an enlisted slave in the US Military, I would often ask myself why the Top Officers would treat us so wrongly and constantly intimidate us. We sometimes received unforseen orders to move, or we would have to suddenly retest for our occupations if we wanted to continue working in them, or constant new regulations dropped free fall from the Chain of Command against our leisure time. The non-stop harassment would not go away.
I understand the reasons now. We lived at the bottom of the mass killing pit, under a group of well-trained sociopaths who lived enclosed in another spatial dimension. We had about as much rights as those same innocent victims of continual Amerikan Invasions. Our military leaders got away with such abuse because we were ignorant of the Amerikan Imperial System.
Hollywood with its Evil Twin, the discredited Corporate Media Diarrhea Mouths, just won’t stop their Absurd Spectacles of Doomed Newsbite. Most of their TV shows, New Programs, Movie Series are not that good – or plain old Boring. There is a distinct lack of diversity of views and perspectives. Actual and Real History rarely pops out of such Mediocrity.
Ignorance is the worst disease, but Mediocrity grows like suffocating Jungle Vine in our Culture, steadily creeping over the last spaces of autonomy and freedom. For example, I do not know any of my male peers who experienced good parenting while growing up.
Instead, I have heard horror stories of fathers who acted like Slave Overseers over their own children, transformed into the common sociopaths of holy child abuse. Other fathers were not even adults. They behaved as overgrown adolescents and taught their sons nothing, never had anything to do with their sons, neglected them – and yet expected those same kids to respect them! Some Richie Rich parents spoil their children mercilessly, while certain Degenerate Poor disown them, toss them asunder, and then flush them down into the Urban Inferno.
Meanwhile, the Multifaceted Donut Cop Gangs stare at us menacingly. They love trying out their new and cooler weapons on us ‘perps.’ They always maintain legal immunities with well-paid extra vacation time after the on the job slip ups, meaning legal murders. Prisons, both private and state, are still profitable industries in this Vile Land of Ours. Most businesses shut their front doors some time during the day – but the Amerikan gulag never shuts its outer doors for incoming victims.
So We Wait – and wait – and wait some more… How Much Longer shall the Circle of Life Remain Continually Broken?
We are already here. There is no other place to go, nothing more needs to appear. Our Enemies holding Political-Economic-Military-Social-Cultural Power have declared Total War against Us. The true question emerges: are we knowledgable enough to understand this terrible actuality?
We have just found the address on some old, crumpled newspaper, with old smelly, dried bloodied gum sticking to it. We stand over a strangely heated and rancid, drained cooking oil sewer, covered over with black grey metal grating. What lies hidden underneath, inside of this Modern Inferno?
We have deservedly landed at the Amerikan Nightmare on Hell Street.
