The human mind acts through points of sense contact, and then quite suddenly – it jumps about – between the absurd and the ingenious. Mental formations squash awareness into mental garbage forms. How to break free?

Psychedelic pharmacopeia bridges those two mental states of the absurd and the ingenious. The drugs coalesce to find a most enlightening solution: bizarre mental states unifying the realms of the hilarious, fascinating curiosities mixed with befuddled concentration. Memory, intellect, will, imagination, emotions, feelings, perceptions, mental formations and consciousness layer themselves into a gluttonous Roman salad.

The taker of psychedelics is not a mindful listener, but instead, a voyager that lets some chemicals navigate through his or her mind. Yet the experimenter is still somehow in control. A good tweak of the ambience usually elucidates a type of ‘trip’ where he or she transverses the profound doors of sensory existence, including an intense sixth sense of the mind. The voyager-tripper is both mentally and physically within the art of traveling.

If the tripper is intelligent, he or she will ingest the substance within a controlled, sacred, or creative environment, such as around trusted friends, or during celebratory festivals, the deep forest, a mountain cave, religious rites, intellectual retreats, or performance-artist events.

Ancient nations throughout world history have used psychedelia as doorways into the deeper spiritual realms. Mental transformations increased through the processes of dance, conflict, performance or costume.

A few psychedelic explorers, however, have entered those peculiar worlds through mental sinkholes – never to return. Those few, naive seekers have flown the cocoon of sanity into the fatal embrace of psychedelics; minds drowned into ego-self delusions-monstrosities.

The decade of the 1640s seemed to get only worse. In central Mexico, a strange humidity invaded the wet season landscape, around murky waters of flayed gardens and green snot forest. Only recently, a terrible flood had engulfed the capital, Mexico City, which later overwhelmed and killed thousands of residents. A nasty pestilence was still rife in the water and in the air. Death breathed a thousand vats amongst an imprisoned population of 100,000 plus residents.

Even before the Great Flood of Mexico City of 1629, there was a near riot between two opposing factions of Spanish elites: the Viceroy versus the Archbishop. The King of Spain recalled the viceroy, but he was still concerned about those urban tensions. The king needed a good foreign spy to scope out the political ramparts and intrigues of New Spain-Mexico. King Felipe III of Spain found his man.

He represented an adventurer-Anglo-Irish-ex-soldier-ex-pirate, whatever, to do the job. His name was Guillén de Lampart, or aka, William Lamport.

Due to his Catholicism, he couldn’t stay in Ireland – even with his Anglo-Irish aristo pedigree. He transformed into a long-haired, baroque outlaw, so he attacked English ships as a notorious pirate, and then fought on the Continent in the role of an Irish soldier, one of the famous Wild Geese. He was a true swashbuckler, and an educated one too. By the decade of the 1640s, this French styled fop, Spanish-speaking, Irish aristo-pirate, dolled up in seventeenth-century garb, was on a trans-Atlantic, Spanish man-of-war bound for Mexico.

Stepping into mid-seventeenth-century Mexico City was like entering a contemporary science fiction novel for that frizzy haired, Irish, young pirate-soldier-intellectual. While he was stunned with the wild Spanish baroque church temples, brown and black-skinned people, the ancient Aztec stone ruins, pungent flowers of the sun, and dirty canals like fabled Venice – he was also shocked with the injustice everywhere.

Colonial Mexico City had a new elite class of lazy, Spanish-born, wannabe aristo-parasites, called peninsulares, who lorded it over the rest of the population. These guys did no work, and only collected tributes and taxes from the populace. They used every corrupt scheme under colonialism to grab more bribes.

Those colonial bums especially harassed native communities through forcing them to purchase agricultural junk tools, called repartimiento de mercancias. Another scam was the local Spanish city councils or cabildos forcing native laborers on public work projects that paid slave wages. One of the reasons the colonial parasites wanted so much money was for the purchase of African slaves. Mexico City became one of the premier African slave trading and selling centers in Mesoamerica. Slaving was so rampant that a good part of the urban population was becoming mixed race, Afro-mestizo.

With this new slaving culture, also came the colonial brutality of public whipping, mutilations, torture and even legal murder of African slaves, mostly due to overwork. While the Spanish colonial elites proclaimed a new and wondrous Christian republic of Mexico City, the reality on the street was a completely divergent scenario. William Lamport saw through the crap facade.

William was a still a spy though, and so he took up acquaintances with some local native nobility. One night William took the psychedelic drug of Peyote with one of the native noblemen. Through this trip, William mentally transformed himself – and found a new false identity.

Somehow he had a vision of Fortuna leading him towards a Mexican Revolution, uniting the Natives and Blacks, overthrowing the Spanish colonial parasites – all with the fop-spy man proclaimed as the new King of Mexico!

Most trippers tend to keep the outrageous and comical visions to themselves – and continue with struggling through life. Not William however, he began to talk about his new-found peyote visions. He forgot that there was a very powerful legal tribunal located in Mexico City, the Holy Office of the Inquisition.

The Inquisition had many concerns with the psychedelic use of peyote. They obviously did not like it, but they were also interested in its mental transformations. William happened to tell his peyote experience to a Familar, or a snitch of the Holy Office. The Familiar promptly reported William to the Inquisitors. Within a few days, the Inquisitors had William arrested and placed inside its secret prison.

The Inquisitors were also the protectors of the King of the Spain, and in fact, the head of the Spanish Inquisition was the King of Spain. They wanted to know about this peyote vision for his planned revolt in Mexico City. William refused to tell them the story – and instead, insulted them grievously.

He represented the longest stay of any Inquisition prisoner in colonial Mexican history. While inside, he composed poetry and sonnets, and he even saw the mass imprisonment and public burning of Mexico City’s Portuguese crypto-Jews in 1649.

King Phillip III kept sending letters to the Inquisitors inquiring about his spy’s status. William even became the only prisoner of the Inquisition to actually escape from the secret prison! Within a few days they captured him and then in 1659, in front of hundreds at the Alameda Park in Mexico City, the Mexican Inquisition burned him alive with six other men.

William had survived the persistent English, the unforgiving Atlantic Sea, the cannon, flintlock, musketoon, rapier, cutlass, pike and blunderbuss battlefields of Europe – but he could not escape the Inquisition.

Some historians claim that William was a type of religious-political mystic. He was nothing of the sort. He simply took a mental voyage – and never returned. He didn’t become the Irish King of Mexico – but he did become a celebrated Inquisitorial prisoner – a type of Colonial Spanish Zoro and the subject of some later books. The Peyote trip did work.

Psychoactives or Psychedelics are the drugs of traveling without moving. The mind under the dosage attaches to the sensory orifices and then allays the sensory stimulation into profound mental states. This interior transcendence is the reason why so many artists, seekers, travelers and mystics have experimented with such substances.

The list of intellectuals, artists, scientists and inventors is a long one. For the sake of this essay, I will lightly list some of the more notable ones that transformed their identities from such potent mental drugs.

The most famous ingester from our modern times was the British intellectual and writer, Aldous Huxley. While living in California, and during his first digestion of psychedelics, Mescaline, he composed a book that elaborated on his experiences, The Doors of Perception. One of the artists he influenced was an avid reader and musician, Jim Morrison, who used the name of The Doors, for the future well-known rock band.

Even before Huxley experimented with psychedelics, other nefarious groups were also engaging in ‘psychedelic research.’ In the late 1930s, Albert Hoffman discovered a synthetic hallucinogenic mixture, Lysergic Acid Diethylamide, or LSD, inside of the Sandoz labs in Switzerland. This was the first synthetic potion, since most psychedelics normally transmit through natural plants, roots or fungi mushrooms, such as Peyote (Mexican) Mescaline and San Pedro Huachama (Peruvian) Mescaline. Other native psychedelic plants have included Psilocybin, Ayahuasca and the Iboga root from Africa.

The Psychobabble Quack Cult first tested psychedelics on incorrigible alcoholics, obsessive-compulsive neurotics and even patients that had psychotic episodes. Even the Hollywood actor, Cary Grant, took acid for his anxiety. Following the psycho-quacks nefarious footsteps, the US Military and the CIA, through their MKULTRA program, tested the drug on enlisted soldiers, convicts and other ‘unknown groups,’ to see if LSD could function as a truth serum under interrogation-torture techniques.

Professors and scientists at universities, such as the University of California Berkeley, experimented with LSD to discover its effects on creativity and genius. One such Harvard professor-scientist had lauded the effects of LSD, and soon became its greatest intellectual promoter – Dr. Timothy Leary. Meanwhile, diverse musicians and artists, such as the painter, Jackson Pollock and the Beat traveler-writers, Ken Kesey and Allen Ginsberg, took psychedelics for further intellectual-artistic growth.

By the 1960s, the massive Kool Aid Acid Tests, or the Pacific Beach-performative parties, had already taken place along the Northern California and Oregon coasts. The favorite rock band for those spontaneous performance art-festivals, was the traveling Grateful Dead. Other rock and free jazz musicians also ventured into psychedelic territories, such as The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Jefferson Airplane.

The Comic artist Robert Crumb used LSD-Acid as a window to elaborate his comics creations. Artist communes, such as the Drop City Collective in Colorado, also experimented with acid explorations. LSD had moved from the intellectual and spy fringes to the music-artist-hippie-counterculture. The powerless hippie buffoons hitched to the Trip.

The Amerikan Empire of Sociopaths also saw the change – and so like the Spanish Inquisition before it, banned LSD in 1966. Since then, the Empire has persecuted and imprisoned unfortunate LSD sellers within its megalith of gulags. During the late 80s and early 90s, the DEA, the Drug Enforcement Administration, (US), used rasta-haired, undercover narc agents to snatch up young men into the greatest prison hell hole of world history – just for a few tabs of paper acid.

Another previous psychiatric drug use, synthetic MDMA, or Ecstasy, has also entered the prison of controlled psychoactive substances – and the illegal black market. Due to its recent illegality, Ecstasy, or Molly, is now often cut with unwholesome substances, such as Heroin, increasing the risk of injury or death for casual users at raves and festivals.

Even with all the recent US Government persecution against psychedelics, the exception being the Native American Church’s legal use of Mescaline, they proliferate everywhere. Both Acid and Ecstasy are especially common at raves, dance clubs and at artistic-cultural festivals, such as Burning Man and The Rainbow Gathering.

Why do religious fanatics and state sociopaths hate psychedelics so much? The answer refers to the history of its use. Since the earliest civilizations emerged in Celtic Europe, Mesoamerica, the Andean mountains, and the forests of the Congo, humans have wanted to explore the connections between their minds and the supposedly invisible worlds around them.

Psychedelics release the sense-consciousness ducts, which allow the concealed universe to access the scattered mind. They transform mental objects into the funny and truthful. At least the human mind accepts this as so.

This freedom to explore other realms, without applying for a state passport, represents a mortal danger to those serious ones who want to maintain control over the minds of the less powerful.

Any human, regardless of intellectual training, can transpose their mental drug experiences into an understanding of the absurd and ironic – found everywhere, within all existence, and inside ourselves.

Humans can laugh at the total absurdity of their own created identity egos, sacred religious-ideological doctrines, costumed hierarchies, degenerate political structures and pathetic economic systems.

The drape has been cast away and the Wizard of Emptiness reveals itself. The true god-hero of the psychoactive drug experience transforms into the scrawny kid emperor running around with no clothes on his body.

We are all collapsing.

Our bodies are collapsing, our possessions are collapsing, our loves are collapsing, our worlds are ultimately collapsing. The collapse is already present.

Either we want to see those breakdowns, or we can continue to live with ignorance – all under the delusions of grandeur, which make such disintegration worse. The questions do not relate so much to the collapse itself – but how we can handle such catastrophes and not suffer the consequences from our ongoing downfalls.

How many gloom and doom websites, like the Christian mad people screaming on the streets with placards, have proclaimed the imminent apocalypse of the System? Even after they have failed at their divination, many mad people have still predicted and prophesied the approximate date and time of the Great Destruction. Whether they have used the Book of the Apocalypse or any other mystical reading, they have continually adhered to their bizarre theories on the Ultimate Collapse.

We are currently inside of the collapse and it will only get worse. Like our own human lives of suffering, collapses are often evolutionary, historical processes, not revolutionary events. Yes, there are wars, invasions and deluges – but they often attack when the powerful least expect them. And so, after a certain, short period of severe suffering, everyone thus knows that the collapse has happened.

The next questions move towards the different types of future collapses. Will they become political, political-economic, political-economic-military, or even a political-social-cultural-economic-military, total and complete event, or will everything transform into a sudden meteor attack, alien destruction, or an EMP crash, or some other foreseeable monstrosity?

The future does seems desolate.

The collapse will first arrive from inside ourselves. The states around the world know this truth, This is the reason governments are stockpiling weapons and allowing the police forces to wreak havoc against us. We, the powerless subjected ones, fail to understand the truths of history.

Some armchair historians, or just the outspoken ones, like to harp on the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire as the true method of the collapse. Very few of them have actually read any parts from Edward Gibbon’s tome, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. So, for the sake of history, and since I am an Anarchist Doctor Historian, I will write about how that collapse was a very specific one in world history, and how it is almost impossible to compare one particular historical collapse to another future collapse.

First, the Roman Empire did not collapse on September 4th, 476 AD, or 1540 years ago. The Roman Emperor was not living in Rome at the time, but in Ravenna, since the city of Rome had recently suffered destructive invasions from the Germanic non-aligned Roman armies, the Goths and the Vandals, first around the 410s, and later during the 450s.

Second, the Roman Empire was not one Empire, but two. There was a Western Roman Empire and an Eastern Roman Empire. The Eastern Roman Empire was the stronger one, which explains the move of the western capital from Rome to Ravenna, which was on the Adriatic Sea that faced the eastern empire.

The Eastern Roman Empire with its capital at Constantinople would seize the great mantle of Rome, and especially after the Conquests of Justinian about hundred years later, the 500s. The east then transcended into the great, universal, Christian, medieval Greek-speaking civilization, called Byzantium.

This Second Roman Empire would last another thousand years, until its final invasion and destruction through the Muslim Turk Advance in 1453 AD. The Turks would then grasp the great mantle of Rome through becoming the Sultanate of Rum of the Sublime Port of Istanbul, or the Ottoman Empire, until its own destruction after WWI in 1922 AD. Meanwhile, there were other European Empires that claimed the Roman mantle.

There was the so-called, Holy Roman Empire of the First German Reich, which also lasted a thousand years, from 800-1806 AD. Napoleon’s French Empire dissolved the Germanic First Reich and created the German Confederation. The First Russian Empires under the Czar, beginning with the Czar, or Russian Caesar, Ivan III, proclaimed Muscovite Russia as The Third Rome, in the 1490s, which would later end in 1917 AD, when the Communist Bolsheviks seized power.

The Venetian Naval-Mercantile Empire, during its height of power in the 15th century, the 1400s, proclaimed itself La Serenissima, or The Serene Sublime Republic. The Catholic Popes of Rome during the height of their power during the Renaissance, 1450-1500 AD, through administering their own princely properties, The Papal States, self-anointed themselves the titles of Caesar declaring themselves the true heirs of Roman imperial domination.

The modern varieties of European imperialist empires also joined the auto-proclaimed, Neo-Roman Empire club. During the 1500s, the Spanish empire copied the Aurelian Roman cult of Sol Invictus, which was popular during the decade of the 270s AD. The Emperor Constantine used this god as one of his protectors, called the Conquering Sun God. The Spanish Habsburg kings stated that their empire was donde nunca se ponía el Sol, or where the Sun never sets. The British Empire around 1914 AD asserted the exact same imperial garbage. Britain’s Children Crusade of WWI would put an end to that arrogance quickly.

The French Colonial Empire during the 1690s, under King Louis XIV, proclaimed himself, Le Roi Soleil, or the Sun King, since the French now controlled grand dominions in the Americas, such as Canada, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint-Domingue and Louisianne, and this empire possessed colonial outpost cities along the coasts of West Africa and southeastern India. Three hundred years later, during the 1990s, Amerikan elite sociopaths began to compare themselves to the Roman Empire – after the downfall of the Soviet Russian system. Our entire Earth still suffers from such imperial madness.

So, if the Roman Empire did not fall on September 4th, 476 AD, what truly did happen during the Great Roman Imperial Collapse?

The correct historical answer was that the Western Roman Empire did fall – and then transformed itself into two major power blocs. The first power bloc represented the political-economic-military might of the Germano-Roman Generals and their armies, and the second one personified the Christian Bishop headquarter-cities and their religious mob armies. The ancient, major cities of the Roman world were Constantinople, Turkey; Rome, Italy; Antioch, Syria; and Alexandria, Egypt. Through the death of one system, the early medieval world had birthed another culture.

On September 4th, 476 AD, The German-Roman general Flavius Odoacer, stood before the last Western Roman Emperor, Romulus Augustus, and forced him to give up his throne. Romulus had no choice because Odoacer commanded the strongest army in the field during that historical period. Odoacer wanted the emperor position all to himself. Odoacer had also recently killed Augustus’ father in battle in order to finally seize power.

Augustus accepted the offers, and simply retired to an imperial villa, spending his last days in aristocratic idleness and degeneracy – until he too died not long after. Odoacer proved that he was a strong and powerful dictator-leader. But like all political contests, the most ambitious and heinous often win the prizes. Another German-Roman general with an even stronger army, named Theodoric, then killed Odoacer, and took over the Roman throne.

The last Western Roman king had already represented the great fool of empire. His name was taken from the founder of Rome, Romulus, and the other name, from the first Roman emperor, Augustus. The respect given to him was minimal since he was still an adolescent when crowned, and his father put the boy on the throne.

Most Romans referred to such an ’emperor’ as Momylus Augustulus, which meant the ‘little disgraceful emperor.’ The one year emperor kid did get his ugly mug stamped on the debased Roman gold coins however, which proclaimed ‘prosperity and victory’ underneath the mug face.

Always remember the six laws of history – irony is everywhere. Even before his removal from the throne, most Romans knew that the western part was ready to end. Saint Augustine had finished his book, The City of God, which explained such a collapse, about 40 years before.

We see the complex nature of historical collapses. What about the current imperial monstrosity, the Amerikan Empire of Sociopaths? It is collapsing right now as of writing this essay – but it is of a very different type of collapse.

Think of its coming collapse as millions of balloons filled with a strange gas slowly suffocating human heads; but instead of slowly deflating – they are slowly inflating. Eventually, such sick balloons filled with an even greater amount of putrid gases – will burst their holes.

Many writers on the Internet have surmised that the elites seem oblivious to such a coming collapse within the Amerikan Empire. This is not true. The Amerikan political-economic elites are very much aware that a collapse is immanent and this is the reason the US government has been stockpiling weapons in all of its federal agencies – including the Department of Education!

The Federal, state and municipal governments have continually supported increase police repression: on the roads, in the schools, at public events, and on the sidewalks. The Federal Government has increased TSA harassment in the airports, and for those living near international borders, Border Patrol harassment on road checkpoints. This is also the reason the elites are incessantly trying to legally strangle the last holdout amendment on the Bill of Rights: the Second Amendment. All of these gradual methods soften the wills of our less courageous citizens in fighting such abuses.

Yet, like good sociopaths, they are desperately trying to hide their evil visages through passing more bogus reform laws and legislation. These Amerikan politician tactics are only slowly suffocating their victims.

For example, our self-proclaimed leaders increase minimum wages, yet regularly cut unemployment benefits – and refuse any monetary help to the permanently unemployed. They want more overtime pay for workers, yet they increase the legalization of illegal immigrant workers, and then allow whatever Amerikan industry to hire more foreign workers on the H-1B and F-I visa systems.

The corporate mainstream media blame us for not spending more, yet our saved capital sits in the zero interest rate banks, which only decreases our savings annually. The pundits demand that we work harder, meanwhile the only growth industries are government hack jobs and service industry McJobs. The highest paid workers are the ones that do no useful work. The top dogs only administrate and act the executive.

The politicians offer supposed tax rebates after filing returns, yet they also increase the allowed taxable income amounts each year – on all Americans, whether they can pay or not pay. The US government wants more Americans to own homes, yet both rental and buying costs keep going up as wage salaries keep dropping, inflation continues to increase, and property taxes almost never drop. The only exceptions represent distant, agricultural rural areas.

There’s more to this deceitful madness. The elites offer us the vote, as long as we vote for either Product R or Product D every few years. The same state apparatus in D.C. wants more people attending rip-off, expensive higher education courses through taking out student loans with low-interest rates. But this same cabal will never mandate that those same ‘schools’ guarantee any future employment for the millions of suckers now caught in the debt slavery prison.

The state criminals want opportunities for the millions of ex-cons without any future. At the same time however, the US Congress and state legislatures deluge the law books with thousands of more possible felonies, which in turn, increase the prisoner population to become the highest in the world – and even the highest in world history!

Those same political cliques love to start various wars and murder millions across the globe – and of course, they truly love ‘thanking our veterans’. But if our veterans have the label ‘disabled’ through the corrupt Veterans Administration system, then why do they want to take away their gun rights – and even deny certain medical plans?

For the sake of this essay, I will not continue the list. But hopefully all readers can understand how the balloons with the strange gases have already strangled so many human heads both inside and outside its latex infernos. The stifling contradictions and inconsistencies of the Monster have only augmented.

We might think we are safe – but sociopaths always look for newer victims. We are on the list too – but so are they. All inflated and deflated balloons eventually pop – and so will this group. Once the first hole opens, the strange gas will spread forth everywhere – it will become a strange collapse indeed. Emperor Kid, Romulus Augustulus should be so lucky.

HARVARD-UNIVERSITYAnother PhD winnerKeeping working over-educated slavesscamsabandon-hopeamerican-greedStudent-Loan-Debt-Tops-900-Billion1california-student-protests.gi.top

Some scams are quite obvious through their open dishonesty. But there are other, more dangerous flim flam operations, which often hide under the covers of opportunity. Some fraud operations have their public exposure from the crime shows on TV.

There exist other swindles that prick at the heart and the mind because we experienced them first hand. So we are survivors now, and we have the responsibility in telling the sleazy tale of deceit. We hold the duty in warning others.

This essay is both a historical piece on one of the most shameful swindles in modern American history, and at the same time, this is a warning for those who might fall victim to the lies of the educated cheats hiding within faculty dungeons and administrator offices – all within the towers and chains of the Amerikan Higher Education incinerator. Let the reader beware.

The university administrators where I had studied, and their very own tenured gang of professors whom I worked for, scammed me horribly. They took away six years of my life for a worthless doctoral degree within the humanities subject of history. Not only did they take advantage of me, but they cursed me forever. They knew full well that I would not find decent work after graduating with a flimsy PhD paper, but they continued their duplicity until the end of my studies.

For a heinous lie, they robbed me of my life’s options, which has all but destroyed my work chances for the rest of my entire life. The only jobs that I can now do represent extremely low-level, low paying work, such as back kitchen, service industry detail, or peon retail, clerical work.

I paid dearly for attending graduate school, but while surviving in that hell mouth of constant work with futile results, I also uncovered a greater crime. It was not just graduate school itself, or the particular university structure that was a corrupt institution. It was the entire Amerikan Higher Ed, College-University System, which was at fault.

I discovered that the Amerikan college complete package was one of the most heinous Ponzi-pyramid schemes. Yet most Americans believe that going to college and getting a degree is a necessary step before entering the work force, almost like a median level between high school and the first real job. This brainwashing trope is similar to many Americans who also believe that the US Military-Industrial-Spy-Complex defends our freedoms and liberties – not the Constitution.

The Amerikan University swindle operates under the bureaucratic-pyramid structure, whether private institutions, for-profit centers, public establishments, or so-called non-profit status centers. All of the above institutions profit off the incoming students and the students’ families.

On the top of the pyramid are lots and lots of administrators, such as trustees, regents, corporate boards of directors, presidents, assistant presidents, provosts, assistant provosts, deans, assistant deans, and multiple other campus directors, such as Director of Affirmative Action, Director of Alcohol Abuse, all of whom run and administer, and most importantly, profit off everyone else that happens to work for them, or pay into the corporation.

These administrators live as the owner class of the institutions. They all make six to seven-figure salaries, receive full rounds of benefits, which often include paid for housing and transportation, and extensive severance packages if forced to vacate their comfortable positions.

The next levels are the selected, top tiered employees, or the commandeering class, who bring in lots of money to the university, such as the football and men basketball coaches, the science, medicine and law, tenured professor stars who receive millions of dollars in US govt. grant money, or the cops that violently protect the administrators’ privileges, such as the campus police force. Like their admin overlords, all of them receive six figure salaries with full, luxurious benefits, and decent severance payments if forced to leave.

The levels further down are all the other tenured, full-time professors and campus spokespersons representing the managerial class. This subset also includes the university librarians, campus food services managers, campus student services managers, campus activities leaders, executive administrative assistants, and the grounds workers, transportation workers, etc., with seniority rights.

There are many of these posts, and they receive good paying salaries with good benefits, but their pay does not often reach to the six figure level, and they must contribute a tax to their campus privileges, such as health care. If they stay for twenty years or longer, without any controversy or incidents, then they can receive a small pension for the rest of their lives, called emeritus, if they worked in the academic fields.

Then the bottom drops out, and literally drops out, for the many peons caught in the college black widow spider web. The peon rabble includes the many part-time, adjunk instructors with advanced degrees who teach a lot of the classes, and who receive no benefits. Their overall net pay is lower than most fast food service workers.

There exist hundreds of graduate student-teaching-research assistants who also teach for extremely low pay. Next, come the campus dining-cleaning workers, most of whom are illegal immigrant workers. A bizarre subset of this rabble comprise the foreign graduate students who work like slaves in the science laboratories, while they pay lots of foreign student tuition money in order to attend those same institutions!

The most abused sub-group represents the thousands of undergraduate students, many of whom also work for the university, and yet, the same university institution taxes without mercy their families for every conceivable, imagined payment. The sordid nickle and dime list of fees includes matriculation, credit classes, non-credit classes, dining, campus services, technology, graduation, transfer, transcripts, applications, counseling, security, building, parking, housing, study abroad, etc.

The next question concerns the history of such institutions: how did they transform themselves into such profiteering, corporate-bureaucratic machines?

Most Amerikan universities and college academics love to ridicule and deride both the for-profit higher learning institutions with their pathetic business and technical degrees and the religious colleges and seminaries that hand out easy doctoral degrees related to religious-theological concerns.

This snobbery is simply the derision of the arrogant buffoons with larded vocabulary looking down on the ignorant poor below. Those pride-ridden boors forget that America’s colleges and universities, the very first ones, such as Harvard, Yale and Princeton, started out as religious corporate institutions, training seminarians for the ministry. Is it not ironic that those same old colonial seminaries of Calvinist fanatics, Puritans, (English rite), and Presbyterians, (Scottish-Irish rite), are now the USA’s top private Ivy League institutions?

The cowardly academic bullies, many of them trained in Neo-Marxist gibberish and who write books and articles that very few people ever care to read, also forget how they willingly cringe and submit to their administrator overlords. The old truth still matters: the bully to the weak, is often the coward to the strong.

By the second half of the 1700’s, the Ivy League seminary schools began to diversify their studies; instead of just the old courses on Biblical Hermeneutics and Ecclesiastical History.

Until the mid 1800’s, most of the Ivy League graduates still had ties to the ministry, or to certain elite families within their geographic region. Since those institutions were the first American universities, and have had the greatest reputations, they started a noxious trend where every other university and college in States has followed their examples.

These private Ivy League institutions, run by Corporate Boards of Directors, now have Endowment slush funds in the billions of dollars, which are greater than most of the world nations’ Gross Domestic Products. Unlike most other universities and colleges, their return on investments works for their students. Even in economic depressions, their students find good paying jobs.

The Harvard Corporation insures that their faithful, institutionalized, corporatized students receive good work prospects within surrogate corporate institutions. The surrogate institutions all swim within the Liberal economic maze, while seeping inside the global capitalist labyrinth.

The Ivy League university system is most important for the Amerikan Empire because it ensures a new generation of institutionalized political-economic elites to take the place of the older ones. A few of the scholarships and poor kids who attend such colleges receive new identities as the future class traitors-ambassadors for the Amerikan imperial project.

The Harvard Corporation stole this method from the British aristo-parasites who always allowed a few wealthy families to enter the titled aristocracy. This illusion of hope and dope allows the elites some breathing room – so they don’t have the fear the mass of wage slaves waking up – and eventually putting the elites into early graves.

Harvard especially uses this deceitful method in advertising ad nauseam its token ex-homeless, ex-welfare hotel, ex-poverty-survivor students as champions of the Liberal ideology. In the Amerikan Empire, everyone has a chance of making it. If you don’t have lots of money and wealth – then that is your problem. The Great Lie reiterates: the ticket to the American Dream remains essentially a university-college education.

Due to the Ivy League’s success in transforming their religious seminaries into first class universities, Amerika’s robber baron capitalists also invested in the higher ed scheme during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

Some good examples have included, Leland Stanford in California, Cornelius Vanderbilt in Tennessee. William Marsh Rice in Texas, Washington Duke in North Carolina, Paul Tulane in Louisiana, Johns Hopkins in Maryland, and the capitalist tag team of industrialist and banker, Andrew Carnegie and Andrew Mellon in western Pennsylvania, and finally, John D. Rockefeller’s donation, The University of Chicago. All of these schools are not in the Ivy League geographic zone, but they certainly imply Ivy League standards. The elites’ investments were successful.

Amerika’s state universities also joined in the re-marketing revamp. They hid their ties as boarding schools for elites and wealthy families, and soon brought in academic stars, mostly in the hard and applied sciences. Some state universities’ reputations entered the second class tier, such as the University of California Berkeley, The College of New Jersey Rutgers, the University of Virginia, and The University of Texas Austin. The Amerikan university complex had discovered both a gold mine and an oil-gas pocket at the same time.

By the 1970s, the older western land grant, university institutions for agribusiness, and mining-gas industry related studies, modified themselves into massive state institutions with over a hundred different majors. Former state teacher certification colleges, or regional State colleges, also recast themselves as flag-ship university institutions. Even the junior-technical colleges of two-year Associate degrees, converted themselves into regular colleges with multiple majors for transferring credits into the state college system – the community college system.

All of the Amerikan universities-colleges, from the Ivy Leagues to the small junior colleges in the rural west, have utilized the corporate-bureaucratic pyramid model for achieving their profits. They all function as top-heavy structures with the well-paid administrators teaching no classes, while most of the dirty workers, including the regular instruction of students, represent part-timer adjunks receiving salaries lower than fast food wage slaves. How do these corrupt institutions get away with such fraud and continue to gather such extraordinary profits?

The answers fall to the wicked brews of publicity, marketing and advertising. also called college rankings, mixed into the lead boil ideology of the Amerikan Dream-Nightmare – blended with the bitter spices of Neo-Marxist gibberish concerning equal opportunities, harassment free safe spaces and challenges for social justice.

As the college ranking system changes annually, the administrators invest heavily in corporate marketers to advertise their university or college’s success stories. Students and professors willingly give free advertising for the administrators on their universities’ main web pages.

If one visits any higher education campus, the visitor will spot low paid student workers giving tours of the campus to lots of families and prospective students. Most of the families are from the old American working class and middle class, people who worked hard, but were able to save some capital for their kids’ college education.

In our dying Amerikan, imperial economy, the Amerikan university artifice has ultimately transformed itself into another ponzi-pyramid scheme. It robs from the marks that innocently use its same services – the students.

The Amerikan university institution is now up there in the sublime racket stratosphere with private prisons, security firms, check cashing outlets, pawn shop rebates, smart phone monthly payment plans, health and life insurance options, Division of Motor Vehicle rates, sales and payroll taxes, utility fees, civil forfeiture, public comment allotments at City Hall, jail bond bail payments, congressional gerrymandering of voting districts, TV infotainment, work application drug testing-background check fees, TSA airport security theater, police internal affairs, US imperial human rights policies, W-2 employment forms, DUI checkpoints, happy hour bar prices, cover charges, restaurant buffet lunch menus and political elections.

Is it any wonder that the only public institution that some Americans still respect is the US Military, and that the only cultural space left where some Americans actually can feel some flicker of dignity – is at church?

The Harvard Corporation works for its graduating elite students. But what will the other students do with their futile degrees at lesser ranked universities and colleges? They often do not have access to good jobs, and then after graduating, the students owe lots of loaned money to the banks?

The Amerikan Empire has released the furies of outrage and exasperation upon us all. With the Higher Education monopoly exposed, learn a real skill while getting paid – and save your dignity.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” Sun Tzu, ancient Chinese intellectual, 544-496 BCE

Sun Tzu once again wrote the truth. The warrior has to truly understand his or her enemies – and his or her own weaknesses.

This method also applies a full understanding of the enemy’s total world views, reading their articles and books, and especially, and most importantly, getting inside their minds.

This method fully understands their tactics, and so we will stay ready for their coming affronts. The most important questions revolve around: why do they hate us so much, and why do they want to exterminate us physically? Our enemies have operated a continual war against us.

We can look at their social class backgrounds. They represent mostly high socio-economic elites, and they tend to work in the fields of state media propaganda, government-union bureaucracies, state mandatory education, software corporations, and corporate entertainment media. Note where they live, such as urban enclaves in high-priced sections of town with gated communities, or doormen, elevator men, or armed security.

Smart observers will analyze their cultural formations, which often represent university-college trained ideologies. We could even scrutinize their cultural tastes, such as preferring to dine out in restaurants rather than cook their own meals, frequenting certain ‘hipster’ hangouts, such as expensive bars, clubs with lots of synthetic drug use, and attending gigs of certain genres of music.

These observations relate to intensively doing our research. We will not only know our enemies, we will even be able to think like them.

That first part is not hard to do. But knowing thyself is a lot harder to perform. The reasons are that we must face ourselves with total and complete honesty. We have to look at ourselves from a distance, as if some casual onlookers just spotted us at a remote position, and then we can critique our faults. We ought to know our weaknesses, and like other social-cultural groups in the United States, we do have glaring weaknesses.

Before pointing out America’s gun culture weaknesses, we first need to understand the political practices of hegemony, national popular movements, organic intellectuals, historical blocs, war of position, war of maneuver, and optimism of the will.

These political practices come from the writings of the Italian Communist intellectual, Antonio Gramsci, 1891-1937 AD. The Italian Fascists murdered the guy through criminal neglect in prison, but his political methods eventually transformed the Italian Communist Party into the most powerful Communist Party outside of the Warsaw Pact after WWII.

I would like to thank my Neo-Marxist tenured professors within the Amerikan university education system for teaching me these occult arts in manipulating political power. Many Americans wonder why Amerikan universities are such Left-wing madhouses. Administrator, six figure salary bureaucrats now run these scam stations, and they are more corrupt than most union boss officials. Most concernedly, our political enemies, inclusive of Amerikan university administrators, have been using these political tactics against us.

Gramsci took his political ideas from the combat tactics of WW I in Europe, with its mass mobilizations of drafted armies, trench warfare and technology efficiency in destroying human life. Gramsci applied such military tactics to the furtive arts of political alliances and to the political engagement of total defeat and no surrender.

Hegemony is simply the art of maintaining strong political alliances, often containing contradictory ideologies, transformed into a powerful force of action. Gramsci understood that hegemonic political action has the potential to block state hegemonic alliances, and even overthrow them. The Fasciste movement in 1920s Italy did just this.

American gun owners are a diverse group, such as hunters that like to eat fresh meat, sports shooters, self-defense trainers, gun store employees, military veterans, ex-cops, small business owners that run businesses in rough neighborhoods, trailer living people that like to shoot metal in the deserts.

We also have lots of other different people within our cultural salad, inclusive of lots of women, gays and lesbians, Muslim Americans, Anarchists, bikers, Jewish Americans, Atheists, Evangelical Christians, African-Americans, Latino-Americans, tattoo-piercing artists, sex workers and artist musicians. Yet, our political enemies often portray us as a fringe group of politically reactionary, overweight, older white men with genetically attached baseball caps and a bad wardrobe style.

National popular movements are political hegemonic movements that successfully become integrated within the national culture. Some good historical-ideological examples, within American political history, have represented: Jacksonian Democracy, Manifest Destiny, The Cause of the Southland-Dixieland, Abolitionism, The Gospel of Wealth, The Temperance-Prohibition Movement, Federalism, Constitutional Law, Environmentalism, Public School Education, The American Economic Dream, Racialism-Eugenics, The Black Liberation Struggle, Populism, The Big Stick Policy, The Labor Movement, Second Wave Feminism, Multiculturalism and Progressivism.

American gun culture holds profound and deep roots within American culture and history – and it will always stay that way. Our strong cultural power inside of the United States means that our political enemies are desperately trying to dislodge us from our privileged cultural position. Even with such a privileged cultural position, Gramsci learned from the aftermath of WW I that a strong cultural-political hegemonic alliance can dislodge and defeat the strongest national-cultural affinities. Like the human condition, culture changes and morphs into absurd newer creations.

Historical blocs are the different national popular movements that make up hegemonic political alliances. They are important because, in Gramsci’s own words, they are organic, meaning they spring from the cultural roots of the country. The political leaders are true citizens that represent the nation. Successful hegemonic alliances must have organic intellectuals as their public voices. American gun culture is definitely American. Our political-enemies however prefer to live in a more sophisticated culture, such as Europe and Australia.

The strategy for historical blocs is to transform themselves into national popular movements. Next, they must form powerful hegemonic blocs or counter-hegemonic blocs of political alliances in order to completely seize political power – and ultimately destroy their political enemies.

The first strategy is the War of Position, where the political movement uses deep political tactics against its ideological enemies, such as entrapments, faking mobilizations, incendiary language, incessant political agitation, continual propaganda outlay, and ultimately, incitement to violence.

All of these political tactics work in that they eventually weaken the will of the enemy to respond adequately, since the political opposition has to continually defend its positions, representing the War of Attrition. Eventually the beaten down opposition must either fortify itself, close off its gaps, and slowly decline and fall for final liquidation, or it must surrender gradually to the political onslaught, and ultimately become the tribute paying slaves of their new masters.

Gramsci referred to this end game for political victory, which is always violent, as the War of Maneuver. All successful hegemonic blocs must first utilize the War of Position, and then when achieving some cultural power in the nation, move into the War of Maneuver.

Ultimately, Gramsci encapsulated his most famous phrase, Pessimism of the Spirit; optimism of the Will. Gramsci insinuated through this statement that the Communist or Radical inside of the War of Position must reject any spiritual or religious morality.

Instead, the United Left has to replace such weak sentiments with a continual and untiring political struggle, or political warfare, against the Enemy. In fin, the revolutionaries have to seize political power in order to physically annihilate the Enemy. Modern history has shown the way in successfully using the Gramscian political process.

America’s Gun Culture is now facing such a War of Position – and our political enemies have learned the same Gramscian political tactics from their own Neo-Marxist tenured professors that they studied under. The Neo-Marxist tenured cowards have taught in the Amerikan university system for over a generation. Hopefully, we can now see where both our weaknesses and strengths lie.

As gun owners we must avoid contributing our writings to hard right-wing blogs that spout non-stop bigotry, often against the corporate media’s new hate targets: Muslims, and we should stop supporting pro-war/pro-US Military articles, which yell for more violence, revenge killings, bombings, genocide and mass murder.

While those right-wing political blogs will often attack the mainstream corporate media, they always echo chamber their 1984 Goldsteins of the Year, such as ‘Radical Islam.’ We don’t particularly like the outrageous fulminations coming from the ‘hoplophobes,’ so why do we collaborate with the rants of Islamophobes, homophobes or negrophobes?

Just because those political blogs often feature pro-gun articles does not mean they are our political allies. These hard right-wing blogs often belong to other hegemonic blocs. When we contribute to their rants and bile, we fall into our political enemies entrapment strategies.

The corporate mainstream media will once again picture us as ignorant, white racist, right-wing kooks. And always remember after the Sandy Hook Mythology Movement – many of those same hard right-wingers joined with their supposed progressive political enemies calling for gun restrictions.

We possess guns because we believe in the natural right to self-defense for all of humanity – including for our political enemies. We reject cowardice and stand upon the code of honor. We will never surrender to tyranny and we value our liberty.

This does not mean that we find guns sexy or even beautiful. Guns, like all weapons, are tools for extermination. We only use weapons as a last resort against any agitated wild animal, criminal attacker, or tyrannical invasion force, ready to physically harm us, our family, or our good friends. All of humanity has the right to defend themselves from violent attacks.

Most Americans are with us on this point, including many young urban hipsters, with pseudo-Leftist politics, who don’t know us, and who probably don’t any guns. Let us celebrate our diversity of differing political ideologies and backgrounds – yet united in our eternal virtues of courage, honor and gentleness.

The gun confiscators’ preferred method in dislodging America’s gun culture from the core of American cultural identity is through extreme, cowardly name calling. They commonly refer to us as terrorists, gun nuts and enablers of mass murder, and some have even called for outright, mass gun confiscation and snitching to the cops when we open carry. This is another war of position tactic.

We will simply reply to their calumny that they are gross hypocrites and lazy cowards: while they hate guns for us, they love guns for the cops and the military, which often target the poor, and the people who can’t fight back around the world. They rant for gun confiscations, yet they want the regular police officers and the enlisted military soldiers to bear the burdens of such a national confiscation, or having to detain open carriers.

Our most formidable weapons, which will carry out the defeat of their War of Position, is our knowledge of history. Educated Americans know about the Revolutionary War for Independence, the Civil War-War Between the States, John Brown’s Raid, WW I & II, and the Wild West Frontier. Guns entered all of those conflicts.

Tyrannical Laws never deserve the respect of a free people. Courage and Honor never comply, and never will we just follow orders. We didn’t come into this Earth to die as slaves.

Thomas Paine, the American radical wrote in his political pamphlet, The Crisis No. 1, (1776), These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph…”

We stand upon this truth. We remain within our hallowed ground, well inside American national culture. Whatever War of Positions the Enemy thrusts against us, we shall not surrender.

We respect honor, they do not. They are cowards, we are not. Never forget this.
