Living and surviving in the United States of America is like no other experience. Propaganda overload and brainwashing overdose entail part of the process. For those of us unfortunately born here, the corporate media have inundated, attacked and cudgelled us into accepting certain ways of thinking since we were children sitting in front of the TV ‘boob tube.’ This image-emotional thinking spawns from a nefarious concoction that has mixed the fine arts of media spectacle, hip TV advertising, and a hard dose of sociopathic mythology.

We Americans can never fully extirpate those monstrosities out of our mental systems – unless we become full on ex-pats and embrace completely the new culture that we happen to live in. And this does not just mean becoming an advanced level speaker in the new language. It also means redirecting the mind into a completely distinct mindset.

I actually performed this mental release program through living in Europe for about five years, and I was able to change my thinking completely. But, when I returned to the States after my living overseas adventure, I was surprised with the change of cultural scenery. The United States did not change that much really. I had changed.

I first remember seeing flags flying everywhere representing the United States government. In no other country in the world does one see so many government flags crowding into the frontal sight view. In the rest of the world, the state apparatuses put out the flags for visits of foreign dignitaries or for special occasions, such as Independence Days or Revolution Days. But in the USA, regular citizens and many businesses hang out the flags on their automobile antennas, on auto bumper stickers, front license plates, on their shirts, pants, shoes, asses, jackets, on the doors of their private homes, and grandly displayed on brick walls, vacant windows, high ceilings and even floors.

I realized that some Americans actually believed that the Flag, which was really one of the symbols of the US government in Washington D.C., also represented them as a people. The Flag was for them too – and they could do what they liked with it. The US government had successfully transformed one of their symbols into a popular culture hip item. In no other country in the world has this seductive method worked so splendidly. The Amerikan Flag has transformed itself into an idol fetish symbol.

The other symbols of the US government are the Statue of Liberty, the Bald Eagle clutching arrows and branches over the Seal of Stars and Bars, the US Dollar, the White House, the US Congress Capitol building, Mt. Rushmore, and the Uncle Sam character. Yet, how many Americans put up the other symbols around their homes, businesses and cars – or even on their clothes?

I also noticed the terribly repressive nature of the laws compared to many of the foreign countries where I had traveled and lived. The nasty cop presence was everywhere looking for victims to harass, detain, arrest, and even imprison. The repressive nature of the laws and police state terror also showed their scars on the everyday American people. In big city Amerika, it was terrible. Paranoia and suspicion truly ran deep. I felt the violence in the eyes, while spotting the fear on the faces.

Actions that in other countries that had no legal consequences, possessed the potential for serious crime infractions in the USA, like drinking alcohol in public, physically fighting back against a person that had insulted you publicly or physically threatened you, or looking at a pretty woman or man in a public library. I was frightened myself, but I embraced Anarchism while living in Europe, so I was going to do something inside this Evil Empire. And if there was so much tension, hatred and fear on the streets, then why did a good part of the American public still embrace the symbols of the US government as part of their own identities?

The most dangerous and most sophisticated power of the Amerikan Empire is its corporate media propaganda and brainwashing control. This indoctrination power is even more powerful and dangerous than its military power because this system slowly rots out the insides of people’s brains. This media propaganda, emotional manipulation and brainwashing system have been, and always will be, the greatest indoctrination program in human history. No other empire, class based society or political culture has been able to compete with having such a high percentage of its own citizens visibly identify with the state’s ideological political goals. Many citizens of different countries around the world would say that they are proud to live in their respective countries, but Amerikan patriotism and exceptionalism are quite different breeds of activities.

Most US citizens revert to a type of immediate defense of government policy regardless of the facts or the truth. The Fascist governments of Europe and Latin American tried to create a similar world through murdering many of their own citizens that did not accept the new order. They failed at their goals because the tactics were too brutal for human consumption. The Communist governments of eastern Europe tried to create a particular mind control system among its worker-citizens, yet they failed too. Only ancient monotheistic religious ideologies, such as Christianity and Islam, can actually compete with, and resist, the ideology of American patriotism and exceptionalism.

The American propaganda ‘greatest show on earth’ uses some very important methods in maintaining its hold on many American’s minds. The first method guarantees a compliant corporate press media group that keeps up the public lies of ‘independent’ and ‘objective.’ The second method makes sure that alternative viewpoints and the actual history of the situation, versus the official government lies, are kept marginalized, isolated, and outside of the corporate media. The American public has become the most ignorant and ill-informed populace in world history.

The third method operates on the corporate media and government intellectuals who regularly destroy the English language with contradictory phraseology, such as ‘surgical strikes,’ ‘medical experts,’ scientific studies,’ ‘tax rebates,’ ‘affordable care acts,’ ‘public education,’ ‘department of defense,’ ‘institutions of justice,’ ‘freedom fighter,’ ‘assault weapon bans,’ ‘human rights sanctions,’ and ‘humanitarian interventions.’ The fourth method runs on the corporate media system regularly using old theatrical stunts in order to hammer its viewpoints across the public spectrum: constant repetition of key ideas, emotional image manipulations, plot breakup and suspense building through continual advertising cuts, and destruction-war-technology-violence-special effects mega shows. Some good examples of the US government’s brainwashing methods were the gradual re-education methods and repression used during the 1970s-1990s, when the political-economic-military elites had decided to destroy the cultural legacy of the ‘Sixties.’

The changes from the Sixties blew up in the 1970s. The elites in power were in shock – and they were scared. Many Americans lost respect for most government and corporate entities. The corporatist elites knew that a revolution was not on the near horizon – but they weren’t exactly sure. They had to do something. And so they did.

If a foreign person were to judge those times, 70s-90s, just through watching American television, her or she would think that the United States was the embodiment of the Fourth Reich. In many ways, it was, and especially for those unfortunates stuck in the American prison gulag, or for those unfortunates that were victims of American state terrorism overseas, like in El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Libya, Grenada, Yugoslavia, Iran and Iraq.

It was during this tumultuous period that American television erupted into a terrible outbreak of cop shows. The other popular sitcoms were family shows, which was normal in a society where divorce and alternative family arrangements were changing the greater society. But the cop shows came and they stayed.

The television ‘hey day’ of cop shows actually began in the late sixties and early seventies. This was not a coincidence. If the adept cultural historian looked into that period in American history, he/she would find a culture of widespread distrust, and even outright rebellion, against police forces and government agents. In fact, cop and spy shows increased substantially during the seventies TV period.

Every type of cop imaginable came into being on TV. Such colorful examples have included the cool and hip, undercover agent snitch-cops, such as ‘Mod Squad,’ the good-looking, suave cop of ‘Rockford Files,’ and the weathered, tough talking, urban cops such as ‘Kojak’ and ‘Baretta.’ There were other cop genres, such as ‘Hawaii 5-O,’ ‘SWAT,’ ‘Barney Miller,’ ‘Starsky and Hutch,’ ‘Ba Ba Black sheep,’ ‘Chips,’ etc. The major TV networks saturated the next decade, the eighties, with an even more diverse variety of cop shows, from realistic and serious, urban precinct stories of ‘Hill Street Blues,’ to the young and hip, good looking narcs of ’21 Jump Street.’ By the end of the eighties, cops even had their very own, a real life docudrama where they arrested and destroyed the lives of real citizens, called ‘COPS.’

Meanwhile, Hollywood began to premier particular movies that displayed the US military in a more jovial fashion, such as ‘Private Benjamin,’ ‘An Officer and a Gentleman,’ ‘Top Gun,’ and ‘Stripes.’ The Eighties was also the period when movies finally dealt with the ‘Vietnam Syndrome,’ such as ‘Deer Hunter,’ ‘Rambo’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’. The corporate media did not show the true story about what happened to the five million murdered Indochinese victims, but instead, focused on the mentally disturbed US servicemen who came back to a country that ignored them, and so they became worse off when they returned. Those veterans were the true sufferers due to an ungrateful public and a neglectful VA administration. Not one movie plot mentioned the real culprit: an US government lie to begin a war, (The Gulf of Tonkin Incident), and a forced draft on working class youth, which used them as live bait and as paid assassins for the upper ranks of the officer class and political elites. Even the German governments after WW II did not conduct a media campaign of their Wehrmacht veterans as ‘victims’ of Allied hypocrisy.

In the middle of the 1980s, the US government committed a despicable act of tyranny against the state governments and young Americans. It willfully, and without any citizen or state consent whatsoever, rose the drinking age from 18 to 21, and gave the US government a cultural mandate to control a good amount of the personal behavior of its young people. This underhanded policy also gave enormous powers to one non-government and non-elected moral crusading agency, which soon had power over the lives of millions of young citizens. The group called itself Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Prohibition was back.

After the raise in the drinking age, police forces then set up roadblocks on the nation’s roads where they forced drivers to stop, and conducted illegal searches of ‘drivers under the influence of alcohol.’ The federal and state governments enabled another domestic war against the citizenry: the imprisonment of intoxicated drivers. These actions outrageously violated the fourth amendment to the Constitution, yet there was very little public outrage. Driving under the influence ‘crimes’ are actually the only crimes on the books that do not secure the constitutional right to have a trial by jury in the United States. Some dangerous legal precedents were set.

In the mid to late 1980s, the corporate media began to inflame the hysterics in the US government’s phony ‘war against drugs.’ Local police forces under the paramilitary SWAT acronym commenced the now common practice of breaking down private doors in working class neighborhoods, and willfully murdering suspected ‘drug dealers’ or ‘uncontrollable addicts’ without any sufficient notification. Most of the victims of these institutional murders were simply American citizens who were minding their own business and unlucky enough to experience such acts of state terrorism.

Another good example of such US government, corporate media mythology event during the 80s was the sudden death of an African-American college basketball player, named Len Bias, after a night of partying. The liars in the media blamed his death on the use of ‘crack’ cocaine, but the basketball player actually used a whole lot of drugs, both legal and illegal, such as alcohol and energy drinks during his partying escapade. The corporate media played up the hype, and then saturated the public news broadcasts with cities under siege from drug peddlers, gang bangers, gangsta rap thugs and ‘crack babies.’ Why was there no media debate about infants born with mutations and severe illnesses due to all of the legal drugs forced on women during pregnancy by respectable doctors?

Millions of unfortunate young people caught up in the easy money sham entered the American prison-concentration camp system for longer years of penal servitude than most murderers and rapists, and most of them were African-Americans and Latinos. The Meth corporate media hysteria next opened up and the police moved slowly into ‘trailer trash’ residential areas, mostly filled with lower class young people of white skin privilege. The prison population jumped substantially once again, but the police forces continued to focus on the young African-American population in regards to drug crimes. Crack cocaine prison sentencing was almost a hundred times greater than regular Cocaine sentencing.

This 1980s-90s media exaggerated, drug and crime hysteria actually copied the earlier Satanic, child abuse hysteria in the middle part of that decade. The corporate media once again inflamed Americans about child day care centers abusing children and the growing threat of Satanism in American communities. All of sudden, fanatical Evangelical Christian cops and previously unknown ‘social workers’ popped on the TV talk shows warning Americans about the coming Satanic sacrifice danger. Accusations flew across the US like in the old witch hunting eras of Early Modern Europe. A shameless media huckster Geraldo Rivera did a one-hour national TV special on ‘Satanism.’ Still today, innocent US citizens have been putrefying in prison and have completely lost their lives from that terrible period of legal witch-hunting.

Amazingly, by the late eighties, one of the most hated institutions in American society, the US military had become the most respected institution in the United States. After the debacles of Korea and Vietnam, the American alternative media exposed the US military’s corruption in favor of high-ranking officers and its continuous lies to the public. Other media outlets exposed the US government’s genocidal horrors, mass murders, and judicial oppression against soldiers of conscience, A little over ten years ago, most American university ROTC officer programs had to close down their doors due to the successive fire bombings and destructive attacks against their offices.

As the reader can see, most of those seventies and eighties TV cop shows and Hollywood ‘Vietnam’ movies most definitely had their desired effect. They kept the young people in a type of infantile state of watching the local paramilitaries arrest, beat up and imprison the unfortunates in police traps. Kids could laugh at the antics of the poor, working class and minorities caught up in the dragnet. But their laughs were soon to end because then the cops moved into greater terrains that were more fertile, like robbing people’s personal property through ‘civil forfeiture.’ Now the police have been targeting everybody. Meanwhile, the US Military is on the warpath across the Earth. The Vietnam Debacle is over.

These days, DUIs are even more costly and sanctioned, while the cops don’t care who they grab driving around late at night. The corporate media also wanted to get rid of the ‘Vietnam syndrome,’ which meant a hesitance of using American troops in combat. The beginning of the Invasion against Iraq in 1990 successfully finished off that concern. The US Military is currently in overdrive with over a thousand bases around the world, and many of us don’t even know how many countries the US is currently in war against.

The media drug and crime hysteria, with the Satanic abuse hysteria also functioned magnificently. Most Americans believed the corporate media then, and they still do. The US government would exterminate a religious group using various federal agencies who burned alive most of the children inside that building. The US govt. exterminated them over buying some ‘guns from out of state.’ This was the Waco extermination campaign against the Branch Davidian religious group in the 90s.

The corporate media used the same exact lies about ritual abuse against the children in Waco, as they had previously done in 80s with the Satanic abuse scares. And of course, the US government mythologized the attack on the World Trade Center Towers in NYC as the 9/11 Event. Again, the corporate-government media used the same exact lies from the Drug War hysteria: a secret cabal of evildoers led by a sinister evil man overseas pulled off the nefarious deeds. In the 80s, it was the evil Latino, narco-terrorist drug lord, Pablo Escobar, but after the 9/11 Event, it was the evil Muslim, Arab terrorist of Osama Ben Laden.

Unfortunately, we are dealing with the greatest brainwashing show in world history. We cannot counter it, nor can we construct a rival to such unbelievable media propaganda power. Even the corporatist elites know this. We have the Internet, but they still hold the real power of the TV screen and the cinema. Most Americans still get a good amount of their information from those two sources.

But pathological liars, and especially the sociopaths in power who believe their own lies, eventually catch themselves in their own snares. Lying uncontrollably leads to greater secrecy, greater cover-ups, and greater outrages. When around 20% of the population can finally see the true visage of the Monster, then the propaganda show will burn in its own foils. And this will happen eventually. At the same time, the Anarchist waits patiently.

1876 Railroad Strike Massacre USIWW pyramid of industrial capitalismGet of Jail Free CardHomeless encampment USA

  1. The year was 1876. The USA’s elites had organized the celebration of the Amerikan Empire’s Centennial Birthday through staging a gaudy World’s Fair in Philadelphia. They had a lot to celebrate due to recently subduing some recalcitrant competing elites in the southern region, officially called the Civil War 1860-65. Yet, their ‘hero’ Lincoln died with a bullet to the head.

American elites also decided to appease the old, southern plantation owners through restoring their properties and allowing a permanent racially divided system, which made ‘Dixiecrat’ rule a lot easier. The US government declared that Reconstruction was officially over, referred to as the Compromise of 1876.

During the putrid election of 1876, a Republican party hack, by the name of Hayes, won the presidency. Not only did the Empire survive a civil war and have to weather a hotly divided society through regional conflict, the corrupt American electoral system allowed a legal coup d’état government. That was definitely something to celebrate.

During that same epoch, the US government initiated its final extermination campaigns against the free native nations that hunted and traveled in the west. Recent outbreaks of bovine diseases and droughts had liquidated the vast populations of both herded cattle and wild cattle in the west. For the cattle barons, the massive die outs of cows were simple profit losses. The great western landholders, or Anglo property pimps, forced their workers to stake out barbed wire fences across the great western valleys and lowlands. If they couldn’t sell potential meat, then they could at least sell their ‘private properties.’ Meanwhile, a terrible economic depression had hit the country a few years earlier. The elites at that time referred to it as another ‘economic downturn.’

Like rat infestations found in urban slums, government corruption, stock market manipulations, and growing monopolies in certain business sectors began to multiply. Last names such as Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Carnegie, Gould, and Morgan entered the American lexicon as curse words with ties to nefarious business practices. Poverty abounded and starvation was certain for some unfortunates in the working class. Most African-Americans either died in their youths as working class heroes, or they sold their dignity for some scrap food.

In 1877, the railroad owners, and other captains of industry with ties to the railroad monopolies, then implemented severe wage cuts against their workers. But the workers counterattacked across the United States. Workers’ syndicates, or ‘unions,’ called for a nationwide strike to shut down all the industries related to the labor force of the railroads.

The infamous strike of 1877, or the Great Railroad Strike of 1877, was the only successful General Strike in American history. Workers picketed, stopped scabs from entering the workplace, closed down factories and railroad yards, and refused to leave the owners’ properties.

The General Strike was so successful, that the Republican, ex-Union General turned president, Hayes, called out federal troops to help state militias in exterminating the workers. This executive fiat was the first use of federal troops to put down strikes – which contemporary US elites have continued to utilize against strikers in major US industries. The US government successfully liquidated the striking, radical workers, referring to them as ‘Commune radicals,’ and ‘Socialist-Internationalist, Trade Union conspiracists.’ The strikers had become our contemporary ‘radicalized terrorists.’

Many major urban industrial centers in the US had their massacres of workers: Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Chicago and St. Louis. US government troops and state militias, (later called the National Guard), murdered thousands of workers, including women and children workers. Still to this very day, the US government has hidden the number of murders during the Great Railroad Strike. Some labor historians have stated that about 10,000 workers lost their lives during that strike. This was not just a strike: this state sponsored mass murder represented a joint US government-economic elite war against the working classes.

The US government was not finished with its reaction and tyranny. The Amerikan state apparatus soon devised some incremental changes to the state militia system. Gradually, the state militias would come under the control of the federal government and they would slowly integrate into the Amerikan war machine, under the US Army, later referred to as the National Guard. The political elites also established the Armory system. National Guard units now had their new headquarters in castle like structures, which housed their weapons and military equipment. These armories were conveniently located in America’s industrial centers and towns across the continent. The Liberal Democrat president, Wilson, ultimately transformed the diverse bands of state militias into US Army affiliated State National Guard units.

America’s industrial capitalist elites, ‘captains of industry, or ‘robber barons,’ such as Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Carnegie, Gould and Morgan hoped to obtain both vertical and horizontal consolidations of their particular industries, meaning the management of both the production of primary materials, and the distribution centers for manufactured materials. After controlling both production and distribution, their dastardly deeds could move into squashing the small business competitors that still fought against their sacred monopolies. These industrial capitalists consolidated their outrageous holdings through the setting up of ‘trusts’ among the biggest players, which fixed high prices, low wages, and information sharing, all leaving out the smaller contenders.

They also created ‘holding companies,’ or fake companies that the family or the major stockholders also legally controlled. They could both hide their monies and resist the nasty label as ‘monopolists.’ Next, these mega-rich madmen bought the senators, congressmen, governors, and state assembly politicians – and even federal, state and local judges. These top bosses also secured disgraceful legal precedents, which gave them greater rights for their corporations than for average American citizens. Corporations comprised the legal privileges of private corporate entities, while controlling the same legal rights as US citizens! Large corporations have since maintained these superior rights and privileges within American legal precedent.

First, the United States of America had transformed itself into the world haven and military defender of the massive mega corporation, the multi-national business conglomerate, and the super companies with tentacles across the globe. From its Industrial capitalist beginnings, the United States government has always supported and upheld the evil cult of Monopoly Capitalism.

Second, this incredibly violent and unjust political-economic system has only helped a few favored corporate and federally subsidized businesses. In the 1880s, it was mainly railroads, oil, metal fabrication, (iron and steel), and massive cattle slaughter.

These days, the favored industries are large finance firms, the Stock Market, mostly headquartered in Wall St., NYC, and the Federal Reserve banks, such as JP Morgan-Chase, Citibank, US Bank and the Bank of America. Then, the insurance fraudsters come in second, such as Blue Cross, Aetna, Kaiser, MetLife, etc., with the GMO-Biotech food monopolies next on the list, Monsanto, Coca-Cola, Wal-Mart, Pfizer, McDonald’s, Dean Foods, ConAgra, DuPont, Smithfield, Tyson, etc.

There are also those large real estate conglomerations, such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and corporate media trusts, such as Viacom, Disney, GE-NBC, FOX, CNN, etc. And ultimately, and most importantly, there exist the energy and transportation monopolies, such as EXXON-Mobil, Chevron, Koch and Conoco, Delta, GM, Ford, American Airlines, Chrysler and US Airways-United. The military-police-surveillance transportation conglomerations also receive their super pie portions, such the US military and the spy agencies: NSA, FDA, CIA, FBI, ATF, DHS, IRS, DEA with lots of other government initialed bureaucracies.

Third, this brutal capitalist system is unique in the world in that America’s elites, unlike Europe’s elites, interlock with each other between top government positions, private industry boards of directorships, and intellectual foundations, representing both university research centers and think tank organizations. This interlocking and adjustable power elite, with its well-guarded monopoly capitalist system, explains one of the main reasons for the staying power of the Great Sociopathic Empire.

Fourth, the US government has no unemployment social safety net for the majority of Americans that do not work in its favored monopolies. Meanwhile, it ingeniously uses massive amounts of corporate media propaganda to cover up its cruel and criminal political economic system. The economic corporate news always focuses on the Stock Market, phony new jobs numbers, and bogus inflation stats, while common prices rise for the rest of us. This clever flim flam system offers particular free money benefits to a few people, yet gives nothing in return to most other citizens – and refuses to compensate those that have regularly paid their taxes.

For example, I, like millions of others around the country, have been unable to find a job in my field, and have been underemployed for years now. Yet, I am a doctor holding a PhD after six hard years of work. I have no rights to any unemployment money, even though I had paid taxes for five years previously as a working graduate assistant. Americans get almost nothing in return from their high tax rates. However, the favored monopolies tied to the US government receive the full rounds of benefits, welfare dole and privileges.

A few years after the General Strike of 1877, in the 1880s and 90s, the corporate monoliths called for greater open foreign immigration from eastern and southern Europe to lower the wages. The federal government obliged to their wishes completely, where thereby, millions of desperate European immigrants poured into America’s urban centers. Thousands of poor wage slaves worked themselves to death for pittances, a few others starved or died terribly as vagabonds on the city streets, while many others moved from one industry job to another industry job for survival sake. The ones that moved around represented the winners.

Once again in the 1970s and 80s, through the influence of institutions, such as the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission, Amerika’s interlocking powerful elites demanded more ‘flexibility’ and ‘greater international investment opportunities’ for their corporations, which implied greater profits for shareholders. The translated business code meant that US-based companies should have easy rights to move their production and manufacturing operations overseas, so that they could tap into a worldwide cheap labor source. Now, many of these US manufacturing giants have their production capacities across the urban slums of Asia. The US government allowed US multinationals to inflict this killer of domestic employment – and D.C. will continue to allow these corrupt practices as long as they hold power.

When in the 1880s and 90s, the top business honchos called for a more ‘educated,’ meaning docile, workforce. Both the US government and state governments bowed to their desires. The Amerikan state public school farce, or the national coercive schooling system, consolidated around Boards of Educations and politician appointees, called ‘administrators.’

Major universities, and even the Ivy Leagues, started to change their school categories from the strict Liberal Arts paradigm towards special programs in Engineering, Applied Sciences, Business and Agricultural Sciences. America’s urban police forces and prison systems expanded their social engineering scope. Since then, this sinister political economy has mixed with insidious social control mechanisms.

By the 1970s and 80s, representatives of the interlocking elites within D.C. based ‘think tanks,’ demanded more ‘values based education’ and they cited a ‘lack of civic responsibilities and basic skill sets,’ among students. The elites were really concerned with the negative aspects of the ‘Sixties attitudes,’ meaning an absence of respect and awe for government authorities and institutions. Within a few years, public schools and universities instituted more skill based testing of students – even starting from the first primary grades! The US government, under the ‘Dept. of Education,’ pushed public schools and universities in the United States to make all of the necessary changes – if they wanted more federal dollars in their coffers.

US govt. officials and university administrators colluded together in allowing a new test monopoly. This ‘not for profit’ corporation took over the testing mania, called the Educational Testing Service or EST. They were the sole company that controlled the moneymaking windfall of SAT and GRE university level exams. Universities and Colleges then forced their students to take useless core curriculum courses on western history and culture, meaning the US and Europe, which added to their already mandatory course lists. American higher education transformed into a secondary high school curriculum. University administrators annually raised tuition by the real inflation rate. The US government then forced states to raise their drinking age from 18 to 21. Finally, American colleges and universities organized campus cop gangs on their territories in order to watch, harass and arrest those same paying students.

The most violent aspect of this system is the lack of any social safety net for average citizens. The United States government however, and throughout its entire history, has continually subsidized its favored corporate monopolies through tax breaks, legal amnesties, money infusions, free of charge police-military enforcements. Even outright nationalisations in order to save the corporate structures have commenced, yet regular Americans receive almost nothing from this same federal government.

US federal, state and municipal government taxes, (including sales, communication and property taxes), rob over 35% in annual savings from most working Americans’ paychecks. I lived in Europe for some years, and this was about the same rate of European socialist-democracy annual taxation. Most Europeans, however, did receive their secure economic backups in case of injury, unemployment and sudden illness.

The sociopathic elites that run this Empire have managed other ingenious methods of social control. In the US, there are various underhanded schemes in obtaining ‘benefits,’ for some form of economic survival. In other words, certain sectors of the American populace have ‘rights’ to particular government handouts or welfare systems, while others are completely excluded.

Cops have legal immunities from arbitrary firing, and even when murdering American civilians in cold blood. If they are under investigation, then they can receive a paid vacation, nefariously called ‘paid administrative suspension.’ State bureaucrats, such as mediocre teachers, district librarians, burnout officials, firemen and general state workers, receive almost complete coverage in pension, medical and dental benefits, and they can easily cash out on their ‘public retirement’ when they have finished their terms. Their retirements are secure because they dip straight from the state and municipal tax trough.

There are other notorious methods in obtaining public monies. For example, people with tattoos on their faces can begin receiving Social Security disability checks even if they are still in their twenties, while families accepted into the Cash-Stamp program can now use the EBT debit card system to cash out inside any business that serves food, inclusive of convenience stores and casinos! Before the debit card graft, the Food Stamp program was quite strict in that the person could only use the vouchers to buy groceries in supermarkets.

The last question is why the US government, which only concerns itself with protecting multinational, corporate monopolies, would allow a few lower class citizens to engage in such underhanded methods in order to secure free money. The answer is that the top criminals and sociopaths use this system as their main divide and conquer social control.

The corporate media loves harping on the lowlife indigents who receive US government checks, while they just sit around watching TV. These scenes especially infuriate the small business owner class that has to front most of the tax burden inside the US. The small business owner class also fears the steep fall into the working class, and the problems associated with such a class.

At the same time, the generals and top officers in the US military-industrial-spy complex, with the boards of director-executives, inside the top banks of the Federal Reserve, receive thousands of dollars in welfare money. Murderous politicians in various fascist governments, such as Colombia and Israel, also receive millions of dollars in annual foreign aid, or international welfare money. As for now, this strategy has worked. The different social classes in Amerika hate each other and blame each other for the coming economic collapse.

The study of history is necessary for us to understand the injustice and structural violence glued within this crooked and infernal system. Since 1790, the US government and their shill corporate elites have successfully weathered various ‘collapses.’ Economic Collapse is just doing business, and it is often good business. As long as there exists the Amerikan Empire of Sociopaths in Washington D.C., they will continue to push and defend global monopoly capitalism. Those citizens fortunate to work in those ‘currently favored industries’ can survive for now. The rest of us have the choices of enlisting in the military, (if we are still young), family money, homelessness or the prison gulag.  Our last remaining Monopoly game pieces now wait nervously on the cardboard.
