When studying the Absurd Arts of History, the disciplined student soon uncovers particular patterns and occult designs within the human condition under civilization.

Empires come and go; they bust forth suddenly, and then implode within. Meanwhile, other states commit various legal crimes, and later embrace the art of war with divide and conquer methods. Most of human history records these outrageous deeds, which often refer to sinister and heroic men. Our historical heroes have often become great through the losers’ blood and scattered intestines across thousands of battlefields.

True culture comes out of the Earth, but it also erupts within the scarred lands of human combat, meaning dead, mangled bodies with all of the rotting flesh of humans, animals and plants; violence has also birthed the mutated fruits of human civilization, or as we say today, culture.

This historical truth displays itself perfectly through the decade of 250 BCE, from 260 to 250 BCE in the European Gregorian Calendar; although the events did not happen in Europe, but instead, commenced in the Indian subcontinent.

At one time, before the Great Mughal Empire, over a thousand years earlier, there was the Maurya Dynasty, or the Great Empire of the Maurya. This empire almost conquered the whole of the subcontinent, leaving only scattered unknown parts of the deep north, the east, deep south and the island of Sri Lanka, who were not directly under imperial rule. This is not to say that those little kingdoms did not pay their taxes or tributes to the imperial leaders.

The Maurya Empire of the Ancient Indian subcontinent, was not just any imperial master, it also helped create the spiritual power and mystical reputation of this particular world region.

Still to this day, Europeans have ventured into this European-colonized, tourist realm for a spark of spiritual solace, guidance, ecstasy, or simply to smoke hashish and opium – and hopefully enjoy it with the homeless religious ascetics, called ‘Sadhus.’

Other superficial, Europeanized tourists hang out in particular regions, such as Goa, in order to try the harder stuff, such as Molly, Acid, Heroin and Cocaine. Little do they know that Modern India helped receive its spiritual-mystical reputation from a very powerful empire that ruled there about 2,250 years ago!

One particular Maurya emperor solidified imperial power and grandeur for centuries to come. His name was Asoka. In pre-Machiavelli fashion, he managed to murder most of his siblings, so he alone could grab the throne. He was of a powerful build, possessing long stands of black coal hair and he had the dark eyes of a vulture. He was not only a plotter, but a mighty warrior and soldier who commanded thousands of troops, soldier-executioners.

A province had rebelled against the mighty Maurya, and his new role was to destroy this rebellion. He did just that – and with a terrible fury of public executions and the complete destruction of cities. Like a good military commander, he murdered thousands. The region had the name of Kalinga.

Asoka brutally conquered ‘the enemy,’ but he was also smart enough to adopt a new religious ideology in order to safely rule and maintain power. He publicly stated that he repented of his harsh military exploits, and needed to make ‘spiritual amends,’ and even heal the wounds of war and conquest, for both victors and defeated.

His majesty became the first Indian dynastic ruler to embrace the religion-philosophy of Buddhism. It was Asoka that actually transformed the philosophy of mental discipline, also called the Dhamma, into Buddhism, the world religion.

His imperial forbears did similar things. The first emperor of the Maurya became a Jain religious ascetic, living naked and fasting in a small room until this death – after the great conquests of course.

Asoka changed the laws to reflect Dhamma ethics: no stealing, no adultery, no sedition, no insults, no street brawling, etc. He helped establish the first universities in the world, and especially the one in Nalanda. He financed the Sangha, meaning the body of monks, to copy and organize the multiple sacred texts, or sayings of the Buddha.

Asoka even facilitated the monks to preach the message of the Dhamma to other parts of Asia. Buddhism eventually spread west to Gandhara, (modern-day Afghanistan, Central Asia and eastern Iran), and within a few centuries, moved east to the Indochinese lands and the Malay archipelagos. Asoka transformed the Maurya dynasty, from an empire representing ambition, ego, conquest, war and the bad death, to a universal regime of right conduct and right rule. Official, shoddy history displays the Leader as a righteous ruler that realized the error of his imperial ways. He made right by fostering the spread of the Dhamma on an international level.

What is quite ironic about this official history is that if Asoka was so saddened by his past ruthless behavior, then why did he not forsake his throne, like the Buddha did, as Gautama Siddhartha, some centuries earlier? Asoka could have rescinded his conquest of Kalinga, and even let the other subjected provinces decide for themselves, if they had wanted to pay taxes to the Great Maurya.

Asoka ‘felt remorse’ after his successful, initial conquests, and this is the key to understanding the grand historical mystery concerning conflict, culture and power.

Culture, or Human Culture, represents a chaotic blend of mental illusions, fantasies and manipulated mind obsessions constructed into everyday actions. Culture births from Agriculture, but it grows strong through State manipulations of past conflicts.

Culture first derived from Agriculture, the Violence of the Hunt and the Gathering of fruits-leaves-fungus-nuts, with the complete Art of food preparation also called, ‘cooking.’ This base of culture always began in the agricultural arts, or really the sacred lands, or the Earth of the people. The word culture even comes from the larger term of agriculture.

This truth about culture also explains why many bigots and ethnocentric creeps often enjoy the foods of cultures that they despise. Do not many Mexican haters in the United States also love their enchiladas, margaritas, tequilas, burritos and tacos? Most modern humans make cultural associations towards a particular culture’s foods.

State propaganda often repeats a false media image against a particular culture in order to encourage hate and murder. All state apparatuses understand that Culture can also grow through legalized murder, or warfare.

But as Culture gets more sedentary, routine and boring, the human condition under civilization needs to create, formulate and fantasize about what they are – and what they are not. This dualistic mental game, or Identity Creation, births the imagined ego.

The State always transcends such lies into transformative truths. The State Institution instructs the subject slaves about who they are, their essential characteristics, and who they are not – implying their opposites, or their enemies. Think on the American Cold War during the 1950s-1990s A.D., and now the US War against the Terrorists.

The most obvious methods in this identity construction are through a shared, common language and political symbols. The subject slaves know their particular symbols of rule, i.e., the emperor, the king, the prime minister, the president, etc., and they fully comprehend their ‘special language.’ Every subject can fully understand his or her fellow subject, even with slight accents, while the potential enemies speak a whole different idiom.

As the people transform into prideful and spiteful subjects, the State can easily motivate the ‘people’ to intellectually support – and even commit their loved ones to die for the State through continual warfare. And as the society becomes more complex and larger, some families hold even greater possessions than their neighbors, all of which become public signs of higher economic status. Class differences emerge, and so there is not only external war, but internal warfare, or Class War.

All of this war and conflict creates History. History is the final foundation of culture. Food, the State, Conflict, Imagined Ego Identity Crises, Language and History merge into humanity’s sacred vomit of Culture.

As Anarchists, many of us believe that Culture can resist the State. Yes, a counterculture can do such things, but the origins of culture, will always return to its fetid source: towards some Authority, and energy draining conflicts. Even the most antagonistic counterculture can fall prey to State and Corporate co-optation, sell-out practices. Think on pop-punk, MTV raps, and contemporary, classic rock stations.

If Culture is not the truth, and does not represent true authenticity in resisting the State and Capitalism, then what does not sell out? Where does the power of the people come from? The answer is only one moral practice: the Code of Honor.

The Code of Honor comprises: Mental Control or Mind Discipline, Defending Human Dignity, Gentlemanly-Gentlewomanly Prudence and Honesty, Courage to Act when hunted by the murderers of the State or the Elites, and boldly facing our Actual Deaths.

Even if such individuals form an armed cohesive guerrilla unit against Tyranny, i.e. the American Revolution, and even then, lose the gun battles and their lives too, i.e. the Spanish Republicans, they will eventually win the cultural war against the State and the political-economic Elites. Why is this? Honor with Integrity always defeats False Honor with Legal Criminality.

Culture is just two sides of the same rotten Human Coin.

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.
