 Capitalism works for allFilipino-homeless-kidsSaigoncasino-capitalismEnjoy CapitalismCocoa-Child-Laborerchina-wage slave

We are all living under an excrescence of legal murder and sustained institutional violence. What did we do to deserve such a horrid fate of hate and destruction? Why did the political-economic elites choose us for extermination?

Only Real and Actual History can answer such doubts. The false and bad history narratives beam and scream their constant bile on the TV and Hollywood cinema screens. At least we still have the Internet where we can read about the truth and then write something about it.

With all of the ongoing, terrible economic news, and an even more horrible political-economic forecast, there are still those soul breaking stories that emerge from the media refuse.

I will never forget one recent story about a builder who always had good-paying, stable work for most of his life – but then suddenly, he was out of work. He drove and roamed around the city in his pickup truck looking for some stable employment, or some decent paying job for his skills set. And unlike myself, a useless PhD bum in the humanities, he did have real skill sets in construction, and he also possessed a long work history of builder experience.

He eventually found some temporary jobs as a regular construction laborer, but his work itinerary was so fleeting that he had a hard time surviving in his bank owned house and dealer owned truck. It was hard to keep one’s head above water through all of the endless billings and the scams of modern living.

With a substantially lowered wage and a spotty work schedule, he just could not survive paying all those mortgage and truck financing dues, utility rates, rising food costs, pay stub withholding taxes, annual city, state and federal taxes, state sales taxes, vehicle maintenance costs, and finally, the forced, gouging insurance rates from Obamacare and the state Division of Motor Vehicles. There were other open and hidden costs that I probably forgot to mention. Almost all of his surplus money vacuumed into endless payments, indirect taxation, fees, added-on rates and hidden fines.

One day finally, the poor and broken man of previous social respectability took his last honorable decision. He would not join the lumpen class poor and accept government or personal handouts. He could never lower his dignity to beg, borrow and steal. Desperate indigents often have to debase themselves for some survival money after demeaning bouts of prison or homelessness.

He would just kill himself, and go for the stoical death with dignity. He entered his truck one last time, turned on some tunes, and kept the truck running – he was just inside the garage the whole time. He let the diesel and carbon monoxide finish his last personal work. He was in his mid-forties and he left a wife and a kid.

What could drive such a decent, hard working man to do such a thing?

The fault mainly lies with those cheap and dishonest ‘landscaping-construction’ business owners who regularly employ illegal aliens or young kids still in high school, so they can pay substandard wages and keep the payroll off the legal accounting books. Those bad owners also allow substandard construction work while bilking the customers for ‘extra hours and materials’ on the job. But there are other culprits that this essay must name.

That honest man refused to live as criminal or an ex-con where he could have received some free money from a local, ‘urban progressive’ government – and possibly a foreign vacation too – all for the ‘promise of not robbing and killing anymore.”

He was also born a male. If he was a poor woman, he could have pumped out three different kids from different fathers, and so become permanently hitched to the government payroll sugar daddy. In the Amerikan imperial nightmare, there are benefits for others and nothing for the unemployed male.

He was too old. Ageism triumphs in the job hire jungle of capitalism. This monstrosity of corruption prefers the young and immature because they are easier to abuse and intimidate – like any good slaves. Yet is it not an outrage that every job offer fraud always demands ‘experience’?

He obviously did not know anyone, or have any ‘good contacts,’ or even some inside ‘family members,’ possessing those cushion, do-nothing, well-paying government-parasite jobs within city-county-state-federal bureaucracies. The less work one does, the higher up on the wage scale.

Or was it just another downturn in the economy usually instigated through those evil central banking elites, and the poor man felt depressed about the scary future on the horizon. Most Americans hate the poor – including the poor themselves.

He was screwed, like millions of other hard working American families across the continent – and across every land on Earth. Like many Americans, he blamed himself for his failure to secure some stable employment with decent pay. What crooked system could transform a hardworking man of experience into another economic loser statistic?

The correct historical answer is our current capitalist system, global monopoly capitalism.

The history of capitalism has exposed a criminal political-economy of false justice and even more dubious political-legal systems. Yet like most structured political-economies, this twisted ball of corrupt vines and dishonest strings slowly strangles its victims into an even deadlier code of violence. Capitalism, unlike Feudalism, Paternalism, or any other historical economic set up, has been winning the war of extermination against family solidarity and sustainable communities.

Our current unlivable system of Global Monopoly Capitalism annihilates any attempts to form a stable family and maintain a thriving self-sustaining community. Many of the lower classes try, and a few succeed in preserving the family unit, but they are fighting a losing battle with history – and capitalism will destroy them too eventually.

Capitalism rots the insides of all the nations upon this Earth, and so there is no escape. Ultimately, the history of capitalism has exposed a relentless political-economic system, which has successfully exterminated all and every auto-sufficient small community on our Globe.

Aboriginals in Australia, Pacific Islander societies, Native communities in the Americas, auto-preserving farming communities in Asia, and cattle raising-agricultural communities in Africa – all of them have had their bittersweet lives ended through the invasions, oppression, and infiltration of global capitalism. Capitalism utilized all of the deadly arts of European imperial tactics: Imperialist Violence, Mission Christianity, and Settler Colonialism to fulfill and accomplish all of its heinous, subversive work. Capitalism annihilated those true anarchist communities, (those with no legal state craft), because they lived on auto-sufficiency. They had too much honor and dignity to sell themselves as wage slave commodities on the ‘labor markets.’

Capitalism’s rancid breath survives on ever greater market opportunities across-inside-above the entire Earth, and at the same time, it needs an ever greater reserve army of labor to herd into their ‘work to live in order to die’ traps. Capitalism and the State always work together for their inside jobs – and this scenario also includes the despicable Socialist regimes. This sinister tag team is still murdering and purifying the courageous holdouts to this very day. Think for example on the traditional cultures of Afghanistan, East Africa and Yemen.

Capitalism murders solidarity through removing the family from any land or any household productions that can sustain some auto-sufficiency. It then forces the family to move from its generational roots to the brutal urban wasteland of suburban slums, also filled with the countless uprooted and unknowns. This noxious system then enlists each family member individually for precarious employment. Instead of a family unit, each member transforms into a wage slave employee who must then daily travel, back and forth, to the foreign work site, spending most of his working and traveling day and night, with all the other peon wage slaves.

Within each family, some family member must make the ultimate sacrifice to travel far and wide, and then live a great amount of distance from the unit in order to earn more survival money. The family soon loses its old identity as a small community of solidarity, and now each member is rated according to his or her earning potential. When some family member dies and leaves an inheritance will, then the personal animosities truly burst out into the open.

Once the family loses its roots, the greater communities lose their power. Towns often become dead villages of old people, women with babies, and the indigent poor who must survive on both parish and county services. The rest of population has to constantly change addresses and find another urban squalor settlement for ‘work opportunities.’ As the urban dynamic grows out of proportion, with more and more desperate wage slaves looking for less and less available jobs, life turns mean, nasty, brutish and dispiriting. The urban vices of the poor proliferate, such as petty criminality, drug-alcohol addiction, abandonment, neglect and brutal violence.

As both institutional and street crime increases, each job seeker feels alienated from the other competitors. The peons fight each other for the crap wages and the discarded scraps of the rich, while the owners continually blame the poor and working classes for their own culture of ‘social degeneracy.’ Meanwhile, the state in the pay of the owner elites, sends the ‘forces of order,’ usually the police forces, to intimidate the economic throw away populations. This debasing cycle continues its death-dealing, downward spirals, like an overflowing sewer drain during a flood.

Friedrich Engels wrote about such conditions in his book, The Condition of the Working Class in England, (1845). His books is a testimony to the brutal alienation, resigned poverty, and social misery of everyday life for England’s working classes.

In densely populated slums all across northern England, neighbors could barely interact with each other because entire families, parts of families, fathers, sons and daughters, had to constantly move about, work at odd hours and times, and even travel to other parts of the British Empire – in order to eat and ‘make a living.’ Life was precarious in those times, and the factory owners fired workers for the flimsiest of excuses.

For over a century, thousands of young men without work had ‘to go to sea,’ in order to avoid forced slavery and an early death in the workhouses, or even ending one’s life press ganged by the captain’s thugs into the ‘naval service.’ The Royal Marines made sure that no press ganged victims escaped.

For most of the previous century, stealing bread for hunger could get one hanging like an old pig corpse at the wooden catafalque. The British Empire in its masterful hate forced the forsaken poor into ’emigration schemes’ towards the ‘convict colonies,’ where they often had to work to death as ‘indentured laborers.’ The old colonial plantation lists of infamy included, Virginia, Barbados, Carolina, Jamaica, Georgia and ultimately, Australia.

From the late Seventeenth-Century, or the 1600s on, the English working class had five doleful identity changing life choices ahead. The first choice was to just drink gin liquor, starve slowly to death due to malnutrition, and die on the side of a slum road. The second one was entering the workhouse, the prison gang, the ship galley crew, or if lucky, the lord’s domestic service – and eventually die over there, where one might never see his or her family again.

If the worker had a little saved capital, then a personal emigration scheme would possibly function in another part of Europe, or somewhere else on the globe for any decent paying job. Another passable option was military service, where the recruit became a peon soldier ready to murder his fellow working class agitators, rebellious African slaves, or any other colonized victim that could not fight back – while receiving physical punishments, rotten food and bad pay. The final option was to go pirating, plundering and highwayman work, or in our contemporary lingo, become a career criminal. And why not? The aristocratic parasite class lived an easy life of no work, no struggle, and there were always separate laws for their legal criminality.

After long centuries of grinding, non-stop Capitalist production with its miserable living conditions, this merciless political economy has continually pushed millions of honorable men and women to their bad deaths – just like our unfortunate American builder who had to gas himself in his bank owned garage, so he could maintain his honor.

In the late nineteenth-century, the 1800s, the trade union took the social-political initiative in fighting back against the onslaught of Capitalism’s institutional violence. From this worker led movement, and the brutal repression that followed, working class political parties emerged throughout Europe who defended their political interests. The social democracy system birthed on that continent.

But now, all of those same ‘leaders’ have sold out to the Enemy. Union and political party bosses make similar salaries, with decent social benefits, as the corporate elites – they are supposedly fighting against.

Capitalism has successfully ripped us from our roots and origins. At the present moment, our families take their identities from their ‘jobs.’ We must all beg and plead to other family members who have some extra capital in order to survive physically on this cruel Earth. The modern family is strictly an economic unit of consumption. Its sordid truth comes out in the will and testament divvying after Death.

How many of us truly know our neighbors – or even care to know our neighbors? Our contemporary ‘communities’ are often imagined ones wedded to work schemes, advertising-publicity media lies, ideological sects, hobby clubs, gang units, or just some other ‘mystical chords of union.’ With defeated minds, we excrete our dreams inside the colonized caverns of the already dead.

Nobody wants enemies, and life is often hard to live through as it is. The evil in our contemporary world increases faster and exponentially by a thousand fold, as do the desperate enemies against humanity’s fleeting happiness. Unfortunately, there also exist distinctive persons whose dark desires find their fulfillment in the coercive powers of the State.

These dissemblers seek to rule over others, to bully, to mandate, to invade, to war, and direct, administer, legislate, oppress and control, commit legal crimes, and even get away with the horrifying acts of legal theft, rape, torture, mutilation and murder. We didn’t come into this Earth with such dire prospects, but this monstrous of life spits out its venom plainly – unto the very entirety of Earth’s inhabitants.

A few years ago, in the very large cities of the United States, thousands of Americans, in true Anarchist style, took over public parks, or really privatized-state owned parks, within the downtown or central areas. Like good Anarchists, and even if they weren’t Anarchists, they set up food-ration stations, ad hoc libraries, open artist studios, and medical spaces.

These people maintained functioning urban camp sites right within the centers of the Amerikan Empire’s megalopolis centers, such as NYC, Boston, Philly, D.C., Los Angeles, Denver, Oakland and Portland. They called themselves Occupy.

What was truly revolutionary about these acts was that it brought together unemployed PhDs with the chronic homeless, underemployed college educated, debt-ridden dropouts with travelers from the lumpen class, trailer park population. The campers radically claimed the public spaces that were supposedly in their name only. They ultimately understood that public spaces had always belonged to them – not to some distant owner ‘phantasm.’

The Amerikan Imperial State and their corporate media lackeys got hit with some heavy volts of scare and shock. The ‘Occupiers’ had succeeded in creating some revolutionary momentum, or as the revolutionary writer, Antonio Gramsci, wrote, the first and most important stage of any revolutionary action, The War of Position.

Yet, the Occupiers soon lost their momentum and their power. They handed it over to the State and then their fun times of squatting-camping transformed into dire defeatism.

Only a few revolutionaries took their actions to the next level, which was through opening up, and then squatting abandoned buildings, or repeatedly blockading and harassing downtown savage capitalism as usual. The reasons for the general defeats were not due to the winter cold weather, or the confusing Occupy signage and open assemblies that had no ‘common purpose’ – according to the corporate propagandists for the State.

The unfortunate reason fell again to the absurdity of human history. The Leftists-Progressives-Activists took over the energy, while transforming the joy, and then twisting the revolutionary momentum into the trite actions of political demonstrations, radical manifestos and three-hour long meetings arguing over pathetic agendas and personality cults. Like rats to a dumpster feeding frenzy, Marxist ideologues and other university ‘educated’ Leftists-kooks tried to ‘direct’ the revolutionary exhilaration into their perverted visions of a ‘United Left’ force.

Democratic party hacks had earlier visited the public occupations in order to direct the protests against the Republicans, but their lowlife tactics were too obvious for the occupiers. Even US government plants with outrageous signs at their protests didn’t work. But like always, the Leftist cabals finished the dirty work for the Amerikan Empire ruled through sociopaths.

Since the birth of the Anarchist ideology during the mid nineteenth-century, around the 1860s, our most fearsome and persistent enemies have been the noxious cabals, alliances, sects and cults of Leftist diarrhea mouths, Marxist vanguard party lunatics, Progressive university-associated weirdos, Social Democratic Liberal mouthpieces and other radicalized political kooks from the Left Spectrum.

As Anarchists, we must never lose sight of this. As in Russia 1921, Spain 1937, and in the US in 2011, these dangerous two-legged animals have ceaselessly come for us. We must always resist their penetrations, manipulations, and intrusions into our actions, and if the case justifies, defend ourselves, both our honor and dignity against any of their violent tactics.

Are not the Fascists, the Zio-Nazis, the Neo-Cons, the Amerikan Empire supporters, the super patriotic flag wavers, the right-wing nutters, the political reactionaries, the so-called ‘Conservatives,’ or the Christian religious fanatics, are most pressing enemies? The answer is no.

Any Anarchist with some political sense and historical sophistication knows exactly what those groups stand for. They simply state the obvious: they desperately want to murder and physically destroy any resistance to their authoritarian desires in snatching control of the State. Like the Leftist cliques, their ends and means are the same: seize and run the State for endless war and for their favorite corporations.

The important differences between the Fascists and the Leftists are that the right-wing wackos are completely honest in their goals. The Left-wing wackos are not, and this explains their most pressing danger to any Anarchist actions or activities.

The Leftist activists will join our revolutionary festivals, talk the same game against capitalism and the State, and then suddenly, they will try to create a little mini-state within our spontaneous momentum. They always destroy the fun, since they didn’t lead the revolt in the first place – so it doesn’t deserve to succeed anyway.

Most of those Leftist-Progressive-Marxist mad dogs are not from the working or lumpen social classes either. They have often come out of the middle classes, the upper middle classes, the commandeering-managerial classes, and a few have even emerged from the political-economic elites. Che Guevara came from this class, as did Vladimir Lenin, and as did the turncoat radicals, ‘guerrillas,’ in the US during the 70s, the Weather Underground. How funny that a few of those Underground activists have the joined the ranks of cowardly, American university professors, all after their ‘radical stints’ fighting the system.

Some of these Leftist-Activist frauds will often public decry violence and they specially fulminate against the violent Anarchists; while at the same time, they accept the everyday structural violence that heavily inflicts the poor. These same buffoons often espouse a type of extremist pacifism – except if it is another ‘cool’ revolutionary that doesn’t affect their own comfort world, such as the Greek anarchists or Che Guevara in the jungle brush of Cuba.

The reason for their abject hypocrisy is because they have never suffered like the poor. They have always had a back door of escape, whether through surplus capital, family connections or through their elite university educations. These armchair revolutionaries love to manage and mandate because they are often first-rate cowards, always afraid of losing their comfort zones and actually engaging in the hard life of discipline and combat.

These Leftist-Marxist sects would like nothing better than to have some military force burn us all at the stake as the Christian Inquisitors previously did with the heretics and witches. If they could dispose of us through other legal, deceitful methods, they would do it. And they have committed such horrible crimes against us Anarchists throughout recent history.

Unfortunately, their methods have often worked. Most Anarchist factions that I have encountered have been small, clique-like groups that have acted just as morose, weird and intolerant as their Socialist-Communist competitors. They sit at their table stands with nasty glares trying to ‘sell’ their ‘literature,’ and often during punk shows or at political rallies. What were the differences between the latter group of Anarcho-Leftists, the miniscule Communist sects, and the Evangelical Christian cult tables that one generally encounters on university campuses and at other public events?

The revolutionary Karl Marx tried to expel the Anarchist, Mikhail Bakunin, from the First International in regards to the future Class War. Marx’s defamations against Bakunin were intense and vicious, and like usual, they worked. From the beginning, these Activist hard cores have hated us. We Anarchists just don’t fit in so well with their demented nightmares of a Left coalition rallying around the State.

Some years ago, I visited a political rally in a park when I had lived in a hipster, pseudo-progressive, west coast city in the United States. The rally stage featured annoying speakers that loved to hear themselves speak, and other activist misfits. I also spotted the different Leftist and Communist sect groups and their tables. I first perused the Anarchists and their tables. As I walked around and peered at the literature, I was quite shocked by the nastiness of the table sellers – including the Anarchists. I further noted a table for the Democratic Socialists of America Club, (the Lefties of the Democratic Party), and I began to smile at their pathetic looking set up and overall lazy demeanor. Were these specimens of humanity ready to lead the next American Revolution? At least their open cowardice was honest.

I had thought that most Americans despised the Leftist-Activist-Progressive-Radical cults because they were simpleton, ignorant fools. But the truth was, and still is, that most Americans detest those miniscule Left factions because they have never been for real freedom. Instead, Leftist-Progressive radical coalitions have represented intolerant doctrinaires who care more about control and pettiness. The Evangelical Christian sects got their first licks in American culture, and so Americans are well-acquainted with weirdos, control freaks, and spiteful types over inconsequential issues.

These same dishonest and cowardly activists also want civilian disarmament and a state monopoly control of guns – so hopefully, they don’t have to do the confiscations once they ‘take power in the distant future.’ They continue to rail against all gun owners as closet right-wing fascists.

These furtive types also like to work in other cowardly professions, such as professors at universities, researchers at ‘not-for-profit corporations’ and they love the inconsequential work desks of our numerous institutional structures. Where snobbery, intellectual foolishness and cowardice mix together, these people tend to congregate and fester.

Recently, in another large city on the west coast of the USA, a Socialist sectarian actually got elected to the city council. This political opportunist used the old rallying cry of a 15$US minimum wage. Some cities already have high minimum wages for some workers, so this was nothing new.

The Leftist media outlets on the Internet immediately ran with the ‘victory story.’ They just left out the political details. The minimum wage hike would take effect over a certain ‘amount of time,’ and it would it only work in certain ‘industries and occupations.’ This same Marxist political faker made specific alliances with certain ‘small business owners.’ Finally, the ‘radical’ will receive a nice politician salary of six figures, while other local businesses, mostly in the hospitality services and social services sectors, will simply hire their friends and connections, rather than pay a higher minimum wage to an unknown. Global Monopoly Capitalism for the political-economic elites, and for the elites only – keeps on thriving.

Most dangerously, these Leftist Activist mobs prefer to support the criminal state versus their Anarchist rivals. When any type of pseudo-progressive government takes power within the duopoly scam political system, they will immediately rally and support the ‘progressives’ over the ‘reactionary right-wingers.’ The moderate centrist, sell-out candidates utterly hate the Leftist radicals – but they serve a good purpose in rallying the other Lefties to get out and vote for the political scam artist.

In regards to the Amerikan Empire under the rule of Sociopaths, this political scenario has become extremely dangerous. Already, both political parties are plotting their future ‘progressive candidates’ for the believing-ignorant public. A gay male fiscal Conservative and a soccer mom activist-Christian-light have been some of their feeble attempts in trying to publicly redeem both the Amerikan capitalist nightmare and the Amerikan genocidal Empire.

We Anarchists would never fall for such a trite political mechanism in redeeming such an evil system of rule. The corporate media propaganda will of course do its dastardly campaigns – but the Leftist-Progressive-Activist gangs have ultimately legitimized all the false change agents. These criminal activities in transforming a cruel and murderous system into something benign and good has represented their most heinous political activities.

The Amerikan Empire can never change, and nor will it ever change its criminality and just stop committing holocausts. No empire in world history has ever changed into a friendly community of autonomous societies, while no state apparatus has willingly handed over its unrestrained powers, and then closed shop for the sake of humanity. The only thing more addictive than opiates are the ambitious wills of politician-thugs in holding their political power with the immunity that goes with such power – all with the privileges that come in committing legal crimes.

We Anarchists know this truth. We have to spot these political cliques and warn others about them once they place themselves within our actions. Our Leftist-Progressive-Socialist-Activist enemies have held fast to their dishonorable plots disguised underneath their diseased political wings. For now, we Anarchists hold fast to our minds, honor and dignity.

Only in our evil, modern world do native flora varieties arouse such enduring hatreds.

There still exist the sick hatreds against cannabis sativa, psilocybe semilanceata, erythroxylum coca, and there is one plant that receives the coveted prize in pure hate, nicotiana tabacum.

What is so strange about this hatred is that this same plant was integrally important for European colonialism and industrial capitalism in world history. European and Euro-American civilizations could not have progressed as they did without the native american gift of tobacco plantations, working slave labor to death, and then, the tobacco processing, factory work, building even larger ships, international marketing and sophisticated advertising.

How did such an enjoyable American plant associated with native community peace, and smoked through pastes, leaves, hand-made pipes and even chewed, transform into such a European commodity fetish under global capitalism?

Nicotiana tabacum was once a naturally growing, medicinal and spiritual plant for America’s native nations. European colonial invaders, investors, and murderers transformed the plant into an export drug of commodity for elite consumption under the inexhaustible profit-making schemes of capitalism.

Columbus and his invading men did not just murder, imprison and sell native slaves on the island of Cuba during the 1490s. They also spotted some, ‘naked’ Carib natives smoking a herb placed in some leaves. The scent was quite intoxicating and the natives seemed to enjoy the community based smoke. They did not inhale, yet the effect of the plant was calming after they had eaten some fresh, delicious food, and the herb even had a sensual effect on the smokers. The European imperial-colonial invaders found another gift.

They stole the native plants from the Caribbean islands and transported them to Europe. The Europeans took a peculiar liking to them. In the 1500s, the Portuguese colonial invaders in the Americas, called Bresil, began to cultivate the native crop. It seemed to grow well in sub-tropical and tropical climates. When introduced into European aristocratic, social-parasite gardens inside of the great landed estates, tobacco plants sprouted quite well. Tobacco could also grow in mild, temperate, oceanic climates. The European elites were on to something.

During the seventeenth-century, some monarchs, political thugs and tyrants began to hate the plant. King James Stuart of England, Sultan Ammurath IV of Ottoman Turkey, and Czar Mikhail Romanov of Russia, represented some of the anti-tobacco elite crowd, while Pope Urban VIII actually had a papal bull written against the plant in the 1640s.

Yet the European colonial empires of Britain, France, Spain, the Netherlands and Portugal had succumbed to the gods of capital. Each empire set up their own royal monopolies for the plant. The annoying question was where to grab the labor in order to work long hours in the hot sun: picking, drying, curing and transporting the leaves. The Europeans had made themselves the self-proclaimed owners of nicotine tabacum, so at first, they used local penal labor to work them to death in order to enrich the tobacco lords or planters. Where could one find a continual supply of slave labor?

An even greater economic windfall emerged through such an American cultivation – the theft of human chattel, or the kidnapping, murder, transporting and working to death of African slaves.

The Portuguese had first established their monopoly of the Blackened Brown Gold during the late sixteenth-century and early seventeenth-century, (about 1560-1660). Due to the importance of such American export plantation crops, such as tobacco, the English, Dutch, (the Netherlands), and the French established their own ‘African’ slave monopolies. A plant associated with community peace and enjoyment, took on the ominous tones of legal crime, kidnapping, imprisonment, mass murder, genocide and working people to death. Tobacco actually helped birth mercantile capitalism.

Mercantile Capitalism implied royal European controls of an export commodity, such as tobacco, sugar, coffee, tea, chocolate, salt and kidnapped African slaves, while it established permanent credit to slave plantation owners in order for them to purchase a continual supply of Africans and other penal slaves, (the European looking, or white ones). The American plantation-slave owners and European tobacco traders-ship investors made their profits through inflated price sales in the home or European metropolitan markets.

Meanwhile, European navies and missionaries tried to open greater markets for the American products in the Asian continents. Slowly, nicotine snuff and tobacco smoking had spread into the Islamic world culture, then Persia-Iran, the Indian sub-continent, Central Asia and ultimately into the Far East, China and even Japan.

In the eighteenth-century, the European tobacco manufacturers developed the smaller ‘cigarette’ varieties, and for those that preferred to chew, snuff boxes. All of this cigarette finery was for elite European consumption.

Elaborate, silver inlaid snuff boxes entered the world of fashion conscious, French aristocratic-parasite bums. In Britain, gentlemen established new cultural activities, fashions and spaces besides fencing, hunting, dances, card games, tea and reading – the smoking parlor with the smoking jacket.

A good tobacco smoke was always perfect after a good meal, with some intoxicating liquor or with some fine coffee. European grifters-Latin lovers, such as the Venetian, Giacomo Casanova, also took up the habit, and so tobacco grabbed some important cultural associations within European culture: sensuality, refinement, power and a coolness under pressure.

Most importantly, King Tobacco had changed the colonial-metropolitan relationships. The Scottish Tobacco Lords transformed the city of Glasgow into the premier tobacco import-export port. These same ‘lords’ would build their mini castles along Jamaica and Virginia Streets.

Those same streets had the infamous names of the most infernal, African slave killing centers in world history.

Virginia, once a colonial outpost of disease and hardship, had become the British Empire’s premier, tobacco plantation colony on the Tidewater during the 1700s. Is it any wonder that most of America’s revolutionary founders came from this proud plantation region made rich through the marvelous drug of tobacco?

During the same eighteenth-century, the Spanish colonial authorities had established the first urban factory for cigar-cigarette paper rolling and export packaging in Mexico City. Earlier, the Spanish had established the city of Seville as the premier processing center for cigars. For over a century in colonial Spanish America, and well before Metropolitan Europe, both men and women had been openly smoking tobacco cigarettes on the public streets. American fashion and prominence had come to Europe – mainly through the marvelous and medicinal herb of nicotiana tabacum.

Throughout the nineteenth-century, the 1800s, tobacco manufacturers had developed better technology in curing and rolling for three particular products: cigars, cigarettes, (blond and black versions), and chewable snuff.

The first tobacco companies consolidated themselves, while they competed with each other for the monopoly share of the smokers and chewers’ markets. This modern tobacco industry also encouraged the adulteration of tobacco through chemical engineering in order to hold their monopolies. Tobacco products even had molasses, rum, opium or honey mixed into the final product.

Tobacco eventually became part of modern, European and Euro-American cultural life. Royalty, lazy aristos, middle class-respectable clerks, and working class dock workers took up the smoking habit. The problem was that many of the men inhaled the nicotine fumes. Certain political-economic elites, Women Christian Temperance clubs and health workers noticed the persistent coughs of regular smokers. The modern anti-smoking movement had begun.

Meanwhile, tobacco shops and kiosks became one of the standard sights found on most city streets around the world, and where they also featured other items for sale, such as newspapers, books, shaving kits, pipes, rolling papers, pen knives, board games and playing cards.

In the twentieth-century, the 1900s, the tobacco industry transformed the world of advertising and mass marketing. A few tobacco monopolies had controlled the sale of ‘cigarette packs” and they made fortunes on the drug.

Smoking found associations with soldiers during World War I and for most wars afterwards. In the 1920s, cigarette companies targeted their advertising to the ‘new woman,’ thanks to the propaganda genius of the Austrian-American, Edward Bernays. Hollywood’s golden age featured most of their stars regularly smoking the sacred plant. Can anyone forget the famous pictures of Humphrey Bogart and James Dean without cigarettes dangling from their mouths?

While tobacco use seemed to sell exponentially – and especially in Asia, the anti-smoking forces mercilessly attacked the drug. Medical experts exposed the correlations between nicotine use and cancer, emphysema and other incurable maladies.

An anti-smoking coalition emerged. This motley prohibitionist group included family survivors of smokers who had died bad deaths, medical professionals, public education school administrators, and Christian religious groups,. Political-economic elites also joined their ranks, since they wanted better workers not taking so many smoking breaks, inclusive of less corporate health care costs.

Tobacco prohibitionists began to push for greater anti-smoking legislation. By the 1980s, they had succeeded in seizing the State.

In some urban cities in the United States, smoking is highly expensive, heavily taxed, and there are petty, minute federal, state and municipal laws that dictate where a person can or cannot smoke in public. Any street vendor trying to sell cheap cigarettes from another state, now has the felon tag of a ‘contrabandist,’ and can end up in prison or even have the cops murder him. The US government has a well-armed regulatory agency against tobacco, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, or the ATF, and so the US government has declared another war – this time against tobacco.

Yet, millions of young women, and especially models, smoke tobacco in order to help them not gain weight. Rock artists, punk musicians and other fringe artists regularly flaunt the burning cigarette in the mouth while they play their guitars brutally. Even some right-wing political activists have proudly taken the puff. The cigarette has its own sexual fetishes, and due to the US government’s war against it, now has associations with rebellion and freedom.

The history of nicotiana tabacum shows us once again, the absurdity of the human condition under civilization. A plant that once helped natives in the Americas ensure community peace and unions through the spiritual worlds, has undergone a terrible and irreversible chemical-medical-industrial-state regulated surgery.

European colonial elites had imposed this condition. They did this without the consent of the native victims of their genocides. The addictive desires for naked profits enabled another genocide against kidnapped Africans.

Most assiduously, certain corporations have claimed their own patents or imposed ‘ownership,’ on this natural plant, while they have mixed harmful chemicals into the industrial melting pot, creating a type of fuming poison. Finally, the contemporary State, ruled and administered by shameless sociopaths, constantly devises sinister means in punishing the working class smokers of the drug.

Tobacco was never the original enemy to stamp out. The sinister legacies of our European colonial settler states, once again, carry all the historical blame.
