In the strange, occult worlds of pharmacopeia, few drugs have escaped the repressive clutches of European sadists and madmen.

The reasons for non-prohibition often refer to a particular exotic drug’s negligible effects on the mind. If the drug causes havoc with the sinful body, and yet does not induce much of a mental change, then the elixir transforms into a good and marketable digestible. Such is the modern story of Chocolate, or as the Mexica-Aztecs referred to it, in their language of Nahuatl, Xocolatl.

The 1430s AD was a consequential decade for human civilization. In China, the Han Chinese, Ming Dynasty established a naval fleet in order to extend the economic influence of the Empire. Yet during the same period, agricultural disasters, famine and pestilence hit the Chinese rural valleys, and so the naval empire had to end. In Indochina, the Empire Ayutthaya, (modern Thailand or Siam), conquered the great empire of the Khmer at Angkor Wat (modern Cambodia).

In Europe, the religious wars and Crusades of the Catholic Papacy and Orthodox Christianity continued. First, they fought against the Muslim Turks, who surrounded the Second Rome, Constantinople, on both flanks, Asia Minor and Greece. The Teutonic knights maintained their violent forays into the northeast, against both Poland and Lithuania. The Catholic Holy Roman Emperor eventually defeated the Protestant Hussites, (influenced through Jan Hus), in the Czech lands.

In the southwest, the Spanish knights advanced their attacks against the Moors, or Muslims, in the region of Nasrid Granada. The Church continued its noxious insistence on the conversion of Europe’s Jews, whether through persuasion, legal harassment, or even the sword.

The French Royal forces began to push out the English Plantagenet royal armies from French territory, and a German, by the name of Johannes Gutenberg, developed the first printing press.

Italian artists finally moved away from the medieval, Byzantine-influenced figure painting of long faces and wide eyes, to more realistic portraits, using the ocular mirror-reflection method. The Venetian Empire possessed the most powerful naval army, and the most heinous slave trading, mass murder, sugar plantation system in the Mediterranean.

With the Pope’s mandate for the Christianization and enslavement of the pagans, the Portuguese Empire traded for gold in west Africa, and especially with the Mali Empire in Timbuktu. Due to this trade, this same Empire would later claim slave prisons and colonies on the western coast of sub-Saharan Africa, in a region referred to as Guinea. The Portuguese colonial navy initiated European Civilization’s most heinous mass murder scheme in human history: the Atlantic African Slave Trade. Europe’s invaders had yet to conquer the Western Hemisphere.

This decade also featured the political-military consolidation of the Mexica-Aztec Empire. The emperor, or Tlatloani, had the name of Izcoatl. Izcoatl was a great warrior and political leader who merged the military Triple Alliance of the three most powerful cities: Tenochtitlan, Texcoco and Tlacopan, in central Mexico.

He also oversaw the construction of the great buildings inside the grand city of Tenochtitlan. The two pyramid apexes represented: the God of Agriculture and Water, Tlaloc, and the greater structure, the God of the Mexica: war, blood and fire, Huitzilopochtli.

His successors would continue conquer lands for imperial tribute – until the unfortunate death of Moctezuma II, during the Spanish invasion of the 1520s. One of the coveted lands for tribute, or for taxes, were the southern Mayan farms of cacao beans. When grounded, those cacao beans transformed into a dark and powerful, yet delicious, bitter drink, called Xocolatl.

Towards the end of his glorious reign, Izcoatl ordered the priests to consecrate the temples for the grand sacrifices and coming religious festivals. The emperor and the noblemen drank Xocolatl in the courts of the palace. They sipped Xocolatl cold with ice, inside of large, dark red ceramic bowls. The cooks mixed in cornmeal to make the froth thicker. The royal preparers also added honey to soften the bitter taste, and then the local spices of red chilies, annatto red color, and canella cinnamon, all of which gave the icy Xocolatl the appearance of human blood.

The Aztec priests had their long black hair drenched in red blood dye. The Jaguar skinned and Eagle feathered knights were in attendance, and they were all in the presence of the feathered serpent-god, Izcoatl-Quetzalcoatl emperor.

All of them gulped the blood-colored, darkened froth, which transformed the participants into a mental state of rapture. They sat around a large and low stone table, and continued to taste the bowls of delight, meanwhile royal musicians played military drums and flutes, and the priests burned pungent copal incense. All of the six human senses flourished under this military reign.

Emperor Xocolatl’s body was the blood and oil to the mental states of war bounty, the delight of death, and sacrificial festivities.

Through these intense royal Mexica rituals, Moctezuma I, the successor of Izcoatl, initiated the Flower Wars. Aztec knights engaged in noble combat-contests with their enemies, such as the Tlaxcaltecans, in order to increase their military courage and fighting abilities. The great market of Tenochtitlan even used cacao beans as currency. Xocolatl had finally united, both in body and spirit, or tonalli, with the drink of the Gods.

Xocolatl, or its Latin name, Theobroma Cacao, like other Western Hemisphere wonders, such as tomatoes, corn maize, squashes-zucchinis-pumpkins, potatoes, red-green chili peppers-paprika, coca, tobacco, avocados, annatto, amaranth, peanuts-cashews-pecans-sunflower seeds, papaya-guava-pineapple, wild berries, common bean legumes, and vanilla, would permanently transform European cuisine – and even world gastronomy.

These Western Hemisphere native, garden delights now find themselves at every world table: the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania. European colonialism has transformed Chocolate Cacao once again, and it has cut off its sacred origins from Mesoamerica.

The first methods represented the African killing centers or the Americas, or within its infamous slave plantations. Chocolate plantings coincided with tobacco, sugar and coffee crops, all of which functioned as export commodities on the Atlantic slave trade.

European investors would later add industrial concoctions into the chocolate mix, which gave the drug – from the once extinct Mesoamerican gods – a new identity. European food capitalists introduced the dark-thick cacao to ravenous sugar, silky cow’s milk, and the sweet tooth decadence of fruits and nuts.

Chocolate is not just a drink anymore; instead, consumers can purchase the drug in cakes, cookies, candies, bars, creamy spreads, chips, white and cream colors, powders while cooks have added it to fine dishes, such as the Mexican recipe of mole.

Chocolate has entered the fine drug Valhalla of vintage wines, sweet liqueurs, pungent tobacco cigars and expensive bottled spirits. This drug is also ubiquitous inside many processed GMO, sugary snacks, which destroy the fragile human body. For those gourmets of gluttony, the physical price leads to obesity and diabetes.

During the decade of the 1580s, in the Hispano-American lands, Spanish ecclesiastics and other elites began to partake in the leisurely enjoyment of the drink. In the seventeenth-century, the 1600s, Mercantile Capitalism exploded chocolate into the refined tastes and idle pleasures of European aristo parasites, representing the first two social estates, or classes, the nobles and the clergy.

Coffeehouses in London started to serve the hot chocolate brews, and in Paris, the first artisan workshops of chocolate emerged, calling themselves, chocolatiers. Those chocolate artisans sold a most expensive delight, called bons bons.

On the American continent, every single Euro-American colonial power: the Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, French and English ensured that their sugar, salt, coffee and tobacco slave plantations, had to leave a few grounds for the cultivation of chocolate beans. The European colonial monsters gave the African slaves more work to perform before their short, brutal lives, and even more cruel deaths.

Like Sugar and Coffee export commodities, Chocolate production also violated the horrible existences of kidnapped African chattel. The European aristo rage for hot chocolate, or hot cocoa, and exquisite chocolate candies, called pastilles, would not subside.

In the eighteenth-century, the 1700s, Europeans became so enamored with chocolate that inventors developed mechanisms in quickening the pulverization of beans into cocoa powder. The French and the English became quite adept at this grinding process. Thanks to the such technology, the European working classes began to partake in the ‘drink of the Gods.’

It was during the 1800s, in Europe and the Americas, and especially in Switzerland, where chocolate factories invented industrial schemes that transformed chocolate to the consumer product of today.

First, they used machines to remove the chocolate butter from both the beans and powder during the grinding down process. Second, the factories added sugars, fatty nuts, and whole white milk into the mix, all of which created a finer, creamier and more delicious chocolate, free from its bitter origins. Third, they created assembly lines that formed the butter, powder, sugar, nuts and milk into bite sized candies, called pralines.

Some of the more notable names of the European-American Chocolate capitalists included: Stollwerck, Berwaerts, Cadbury, Ghiradelli, Lindt, Tobler, Hershey and Nestle. All social classes enjoyed the chewing, eating and drinking of chocolate.

Nowadays, most of the worlds’ chocolate bean production occurs in west Africa. Apparently, the chocolate capitalists still treat and pay their workers like slaves.

Chocolate still lives among our innumerable products on the supermarket shelves, yet massive food corporations combine it with high amounts of sugar, and then mix it all with horrid GMOs, or genetically modified products. All of those carcinogens destroy the delicate human body. Chocolate is still delicious, yet it eventually leads to gluttony, fast weight gain, and if abused, obesity.

Chocolate was once the food of the gods – found in the secret halls of Mayan and Aztec royalty. Later in history, European colonials invaded the Americas, destroyed their grand cultures, and stole their wondrous products.

European mercantile capitalism then murdered millions of Africans in order to process American plants, inclusive of the other European addictions, such as sugar cane, coffee beans and tobacco leaves. Ultimately, European technology transformed Chocolate through the processes of industrial capitalism, so that it is extremely rich and tasty. This process will also destroy the tenuous human body.

In fin, the Chocolate drug, with its sordid history, exposes Modern European Civilization’s profound culture of avarice, luxury and gluttony.

Our modern toxic ideologies, social, cultural or political, or all of those above three categories mixed together, have always concealed themselves under the Sciences of the Good.

We have the modern examples of the Judeo-Christian Monotheist Cult, Psychobabble, Racialism-Eugenics, Mandatory-Compulsory State Schooling, Modern Clinical Medicine, Prison Punishment-Reform and Global Monopoly Capitalism.

There has been one peculiar, persistent, and venomous ideology that has regularly clothed itself under the benign classifications of both political-economy and social-cultural movements. This same false science has even parasited itself within Modern religion, especially Anglo-American Christianity. It has further appropriated the vocabularies of many other ideologies as if it had invented the Modern World itself.

Such deceit has represented the marvelous and malevolent power of Liberalism or Liberal Democracy.

Others might contend that Communism, International Terrorism and Fascism have represented the world’s most dangerous ideologies. They are wrong again. These brainwashed individuals have watched too much Anglo-American toxic television, saturated through the same diseased mind of Liberalism.

Media experts, also brain-damaged through Liberalism, have decomposed and microwaved their ideological madness within the boardrooms of the BBC channels, and inside American Corporate Media Conglomerates, such as NBC, FOX, CNN, ABC and CBS.

The year was 1750, right in the middle of one of the most violent and vile centuries in human history. It was during this particular century of legal murder and theft that Liberalism birthed its sinister appearance.

A French philosopher-intellectual-‘celebre’ writer, with the name of Voltaire, was ‘vacationing,’ or spending three years of his free time, idling, eating ten course meals, drinking tea, sampling fine wines, sleeping in luxurious beds, taking sumptuous baths, and pouting about the gardens inside the Prussian royal pleasure court. He was not living this princely existence alone however.

He was an invitee among ‘the premier group,’ a first class guest of the Prussian Emperor, Frederick II, or called ‘the Great,’ at his palace in Potsdam, Brandenburg Prussia. There was no German name for this ostentatious monstrosity that bespoke the privilege of family name and wealth. Instead it had a French title, Sans Souci, or in English, ‘without care.’ Voltaire was such a witty and polite guest for three years, that he even had a bedroom-writing studio, named after himself, in one of the fifty or so rooms found in one of the five different palaces!

Here was a ‘radical’ French intellectual-writer, wearing knee breeches, high-heeled shoes, facial makeup and a powered wig, dining in full aristocratic-parasite style with one of the most belligerent European tyrants on the continent, also similarly attired.

The militarist spirit of Machiavelli freely mixed with the free thinking snobbery of European effete manners. This gross display of hypocrisy and aristocratic degeneracy escaped the censure of both men.

All of these ‘cultivated’ gentlemen knew that they were living in ‘special times.’ They were elite men of the Enlightenment, the Illustration. Liberals dressed and paraded around in fine and lavish colors, always a cut above the common peasant or artisan losers that worked with their hands.

Most of these Liberals were actually base hypocrites, egotistical barbarians and pathetic elitists. Liberal Democrats have relentlessly continued on this degenerate path. To this very day, they pledge allegiance to these vile practices of elitism and snobbery.

Liberalism or Liberal Democracy has always operated with one set of people lording over another, while committing horrible institutional violence against inferior groups. Yet, unlike an aristocratic oligarchy of noble birth that makes the rules for everyone else, Liberalism brazenly lies through its teeth. The Liberal Democratic ideology has proclaimed the equality of all men, and now women, before God, with the freedoms of worship, speech, grievances and writing. It practices display the exact opposite.

It calls for democratic ‘elections,’ yet it demands that wealthy political cabals of liars and crooks pick the right candidates for the lower elements of society. These elected ‘officials’ or ‘representatives of the people,’ delegate the laws, and the people simply obey.

The sacred freedoms of Liberal Democracy only work for the elect masters of political-economy and social-cultural distinction. For everyone else, they must survive under the stark brutality of a ‘free market’ capitalist economy and the arts of constant surveillance. The gross hypocrites of Liberalism live in splendor through their family names and elite university educations. The rest of us, social scum, must suffer under the daily violence of socio-economic injustice and police harassment.

If we disobey, the Liberals have the prison inferno waiting for us. Meanwhile, our masters train us early in their ‘state mandatory schools,’ while they later distract and entertain us through their corporate media TV programs, professional sports spectacles and advertising tricks.

Liberalism has always been more violent, and has started more wars than most dictatorships and tyrannies. Why is this? Liberalism believes that all of its wars are good wars, because Liberal Democracies are the only decent government organizations. The danger of this ideology for our modern world is that the leaders of this ideological scam believe their own lies. They are unrepentant hypocrites. They truly believe that Liberal Democracy and a Free Market economy are the only systems that work.

Woe unto the enemies of this most sinister and terrorizing ideology. Liberal Democracies have operated as the most adept practitioners in the dark arts of extermination and genocide. They continue to beat the Nazis, fanatical Communists, and other murderous regimes by long shots.

Democratic regimes have gotten away with their mass murders, and they still come clean from their crimes, even after historical knowledge has exposed their criminality. Think on the United States genocide against the Native nations. History also documents the British forced famines in Ireland, Africa and in India, the French colonial system of ‘white settler enclaves’ versus the local Arab and Berber societies in North Africa.

Concerning ‘the white republics,’ we have the white Australian methods in exterminating the aboriginal nations, the New Zealand white containment and massive land theft against Maori communities, and the white South African ‘black homeland,’ pass system. The most sinister Liberal rule on this Earth is the Zio-Nazi system, which has maintained the largest concentration-death camps in world history against the Palestinians: Gaza and West Bank. There is also Anglo-Canada, with its permitted rapes, tortures and murders of native children forced to attend Christian religious schools run by perverts.

All ideological cabals murder well, but Liberal Democracies are History’s sublime experts in the art of mass murder-genocide, and then covering up the tracks, even hiding the records. The false smiles and suave voices of the lying politicians or parliamentarians makes the heinous acts so much worse.

While Voltaire and the Emperor sampled fine wines and ten course meals at Sans Souci Palace, African slaves in the Caribbean had to endure the tropical hells of unlimited sugar plantation work. Those slaves that refused to obey work orders walked the water wheel. When they couldn’t do it anymore, they fell to their deaths, crushed through the massive wooden and metal blades. The blood and flesh ripped apart in all directions, as the slave master considered another sale for more African flesh and blood. Not one white Caribbean slave master had to face the punishment of mass murder.

Still to this day, British official history proclaims Britain as the defender of ‘abolitionism.’ Yet, it quietly leaves out the historical facts about how the British Empire imported more kidnapped Africans onto its tropical extermination camps than all the other colonial empires during the eighteenth-century.

As Voltaire and the Emperor conversed in French concerning civil religion and aristocratic-royalty society gossip, Irish peasants had to watch their baby children starve to death due to English penury laws that excluded them totally from any legal recourse to Christian charity – meaning foodstuffs to eat. One writer exposed the madness during the Irish Famines, Jonathon Swift. Due to his British education, he had to use satire, the only literary form that could educate the eighteenth-century reading public.

The British Empire of the eighteenth-century was not only cruel to Africans, South Asians and the Irish, it also regularly murdered its poorer English subjects. For the hungry that swarmed the cities, even stealing some bread and mutton to eat, resulted in public hangings. Both English men and women suffered such terrible fates. Their only crime was that they were poor, homeless and hungry.

Many working class English lads had to keep a mindful watch for the military kidnappers that forcibly impressed them into Naval slavery on the high seas. Any resistance met the brutal torture and murder of the Royal Marines who were the cops that watched over them. Legal kidnappers also thronged the poor and working areas of England who often enticed and defrauded their victims to work to death, as ‘indentured servants,’ in Britain’s ‘successful North American plantations.’ This is the true history of Liberal Democracy in Great Britain, the first, national parliamentary system of Modern Europe.

Liberal Democracy has ultimately birthed the most nefarious world empire in human history, the Amerikan Empire, or the United States of America. This is the same freedom-loving, land of opportunity, which has the highest prisoner population in world history, with the exception of the Nazis in the 1940s, and it has the most dense legal codes than any other regime, thereby making most of its citizens walking felons deserving of the Amerikan incarceration nightmare.

This same empire always seems to find another war to start, and yet even when it loses its wars, this cabal of sociopaths has managed to murder millions of innocent civilians through economic sanctions, chemical warfare, massive aerial bombings, starvation, or through military invasions and drone attacks.

Are we Anarchists surprised when see the ‘republics,’ the constitutional monarchies, or the white colonial-settler states, representing France, Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the Zio-Nazi Crusader State, line up in defense of the Amerikan Empire? After many political setbacks, Liberal Democracy seems to resurrect its evil intents and recoup the losses. This ideology will not go away.

We Anarchists cannot fight such an ideology because it has seized the apparatus of the State across the globe. This same noxious belief system also retains most of the corporate media on the television.

But we must publicly condemn its practices, which speak louder volumes than its devious advertising and false words. This is a friendly ideology, fooling the ignorant through dishonorable smiles and schooled diction.

Shaking its cowardly hands means the death of millions. Even our sacred hours of sleep are in constant danger from their criminal plots.
