Sun Tzu, the Daoist intellectual of sixth-century BCE China, stated that all warfare bases itself on deception. He was correct during that period of world history – and this truth still reigns over contemporary times.

How long must us gun owners have to bear attacks against our honor every time a disturbed young man on psychotropic meds shoots people in a gun free zone? Yet immediately after each shooting, the same public figures jump into the media warpath against us. They never attack the psycho quacks that first administered the legal dope. And it is always the same cabal of gun owner haters every time.

They might lie and say that they hate the guns, but they are dishonest and dishonorable. They don’t seem to hate the fact that Amerikan police forces carry guns, where they regularly murder citizens inside of the Empire – with full legal immunities.

They don’t mind when their political heroes send the US military across the globe, and then  legally murder ‘the unpeople’ who dare to defend their nations against imperial invasions. So why do these ‘anti-gunners’ specifically target us, and why have they declared a most torrid media war against us?

One hundred years ago in the United States, there was no ‘gun control movement.’ Gun control actually meant the proper hand control of both pistols and rifles. Gun control codes did happen however. They implied state and municipal governments prohibiting certain dangerous classes or people in owning weapons.

The first gun control decrees in the United States sprang from the system of white supremacy, which meant making gun ownership very difficult for the severely oppressed Black population. Lynch mob terror could not work effectively with a heavily armed African-American population standing around.

There was a very good reason that the Black Panthers openly walked with their loaded rifles during the 1960s. For them, it meant literal survival against both state and federal police terror – always ready to exterminate them. And they were right. How many Panthers ended their short lives murdered through sudden cop attacks or through the inhumane Amerikan legal injustice system?

The first modern city-wide gun control effort started in that fetid swamp of political corruption – New York City. The time was the 1890s, and the mayor, Tommy Sullivan, a local mobster-politico, from the Tammany Hall Democratic hack machine, pushed in the first gun control law which is still on the books today, called the Sullivan Law.

This legislation runs totally against the Second amendment of the US Constitution. Yet, the federal government has given that city complete legal privileges in snubbing its nose against the said constitution. Since the Sullivan Law, NYC City Hall has continued to implement spurious laws and outrageous decrees. Meanwhile, the City’s Police Department holds the monopoly on gun ownership. This is the current goal of the US government in Washington D.C.

Our enemies represent the US federal government, mostly found in the Democratic Party Machine, but there exist many other traitors on the other side, well inside the Republican Party Machine.

Remember the state mythology event of Sandy Hook. Some notable Republicans and Conservatives began to publicly call for limitations on the right to own guns. Those political opportunists will easily call for guns confiscations again. Copying the federal crooks, state and municipal governments will also call for gun confiscations – if they feel that a good amount of the regional population loses its legitimate consent of the governing elites. The politicians have never been, nor are they now – our friends.

Our most formidable enemies fester in the corporate TV media, from FOX to MSNBC, from CNN to CBS. Why does the corporate TV media hate American gun owners?

The people who work and hold good jobs in news entertainment are not journalists. They are state propagandists for the Amerikan Empire. They love cops and military officers, but they hate regular Americans who carry weapons. Those ignorant, yet college educated, cabals enjoy denigrating the average American.

The pseudo-sophisticated media types live and multiply in urban enclaves with doormen, elevator men, or with armed security that patrol their apartment complexes. Anyone who wants to defend his or herself is simply a paranoid hick sitting on a porch in a rural backwater.

The next round of hypocrites represents the Industry, meaning the Hollywood Entertainment Industry. Those sanctimonious elites enjoy making movies with lots of bad gun fights and gun murders – but that doesn’t stop them from encouraging gun confiscations. Most Hollywood Industry producers, writers, directors and talent stars seem to represent the public cheerleaders against American gun owners.

The Amerikan University Scam system is another menacing opponent against gun owners. Most university administrators and tenured cowardly professors, who work like dogs under the administrators, regularly lambast and denigrate American gun owners.

Almost all American colleges and universities are gun free zones. Yet, all campus police forces publicly carry high-powered, semi-automatic pistols! I have never heard a cowardly professor openly complain about university police carrying firearms.

Corrupt politicians, corporate media hacks, Hollywood bosses, university admins and tenured professor cowards all share one aspect in common. They all worship and love the State. The State is their cultural collaborator, their legal protector when under scrutiny, and their backup, economic support, when the economy falls apart.

The political-economic American elites who consider themselves ‘education experts’ also want gun confiscations. It bothers them that a low-class, American loser still has the right to buy a rifle. All American elites hold genuine concerns about the coming Civil War.

These snobs and elite mobs also hate gun owners because they mostly live in urban communities that do not suffer from the blights of economic poverty. They don’t have to worry about muggings once they walk out their front doors.

Political-economic elites think that they uphold the cultural standards of ‘sophistication.’ It bothers them that America is not like London and Paris. Gun ownership is definitely not on their agenda. Spacious art gallery openings, classical music orchestras, jazz concertos, visiting eclectic restaurants, wine bars, and public lectures on geo-politics are cool.

Plinking with friends in the desert is not cool. According to them, America’s gun owners are rural, pathetic, ignorant, right-wing duped, trailer trash, ‘Philistines.’ Those cretins are an embarrassment to their urbane European friends.

Our enemies do not possess guns, nor do they know how to use them – but they are very powerful opponents because they possess the power of cultural capital. Cultural capital signifies a good amount of cultural influence over the general population.

Our elites control the outlay of media images, common corporate vocabulary, and they hold a monopoly on intellectual, expert opinions within the United States. Yes, every time another public shooting takes place, those haters will immediately go on the offensive against gun owners. They also have lots of capital, (money), to fund their schemes. Most ominously, they have the Amerikan Empire, (the US Government), in their corner – all of which includes both political parties.

Eventually, the US government will institute gun confiscations, and they have already hinted at such tactics, often using the example of Australia. The registering of weapons, which is the first stage of confiscations, has already commenced in the dictatorial, Liberal ruled states of New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland and California.

How do we fight such threatening adversaries meanwhile? As these dissemblers write their long and winded anti-gun owner columns in the corporate and Liberal-Leftist blogs, so we must expose their hypocrisy in the fact that these groups love the cops and military who have complete rights in not only carrying guns – but using them on all enemies foreign and domestic.

We have our own blogs on the Internet, so we can ignore their epidemics on the corporate media websites. The more writing we compose on the sacred rights to self-defense, from all and any physical attacks, the more honorable and intelligent readers will support our struggle. Our state-venerating antagonists would like nothing better than to see the US government physically annihilate all gun owners.

They have already declared an unending war against us since the 1970s. They move, react and proliferate under the state’s methods of gradualism, or step by step repressive decrees. First, gun registries, next, gun confiscations, and ultimately, lockdowns, imprisonment, and even physical extermination. Always remember this appalling historical truth.

cows for the slaughter MATTE-POST-APOCALYPSEbloody_us_flag_sized__large american_empire_propaganda ironhammer us military operations amerikan-polisi

The hardest lesson for the historian to learn is that crime does pay, evil does triumph.

The Nazi Regime lost its war of conquest in 1945 – but a more monstrous regime immediately took its place: the Amerikan Empire, or the United States of America, with its headquarters in Washington D.C.

This imperial fiend still murders incessantly according to its heinous will. The Amerikan Empire is now murdering hundreds of thousands of Syrians, tens of thousands of Libyans, and thousands of Yemenis, and very soon it will murder millions of Syrians, Libyans and Yemenis, as it has recently assassinated with impunity in Afghanistan and in Iraq.

A completely illegitimate government, representing the State Mafia of Mexico City, has now murdered over 100,000 of their own citizens. This same criminal network receives most of its ‘anti-narco funds’ from the US government of sociopaths. In Colombia, another Narco-Regime has been murdering its own population unremittingly, and the number of victims is reaching the half a million mark. The Amerikan Empire has spent billions supporting and training the Colombian military-paramilitary death squads in the furtive arts of murder.

This North American Empire continues to fund and support a brutal war in the Ukraine in order for the recent coup plotters to exterminate the Russian population in the eastern part of the country. The ultra-nationalists in Kiev want a Russian-free Ukraine. The US government will support them in this cruel attempt, as it has bankrolled the KLA terrorist thugs that now run the Albanian nationalist state in Kosovo, and the Balkan Fascists that rule the Ustachi regime in Croatia. Those crooked authorities  have eliminated their Serb population problems. The Amerikan Empire is responsible for the mass killing of thousands of Europeans, yet none of the American political elites have had to appear before the so-called ‘War Crimes Tribunal.’

Another political-military system of liquidation has completed its evil tasks in Congo, Africa. 10 million victims have perished in this media blacked out genocide. The first mass extermination system began in the 1880s, when King Leopold of Belgium directed the mass liquidation. The second one has appropriated another 10 million fatalities. This second genocide received its orders from the Amerikan Empire of Sociopaths.

Across every continent, in every region of the world, the Amerikan Empire has continued to support the most venal elites, or whatever horribly corrupt government, which would even sell their family members to the lynching tree of empire. This imperial fortress of propaganda and lies has fomented total war, mass extermination campaigns, and the bad death for billions of Earth’s inhabitants.

Inside this monster overlord, institutional violence with the eternal war against the poor increases daily in intensity.  Driving a vehicle on the major interstates has become a form of mental torture. I am not just speaking of the bad drivers.

The prisons are everywhere, and so is prison construction. The fear of getting pulled over by the police forces is real. The police inside of the Empire have full powers and legal freedoms to murder, torture, imprison and rob the basic property of most Americans, often personal cash money or one’s own vehicle. Americans have incredibly difficult legal recourses in fighting such tyranny.

Throughout the United States, in small towns and in small cities, most shops stay closed and shut. The storefronts often display weird crap in the windows. Most of the open store fronts are antique shops that sell the leftover, hoarded junk from American basements and attics.

Available, decent-paying jobs are often in police, security guard, prison work. There also exist work offers in the hospital social service sectors, a few cafe or bar jobs, or if someone has family friends contacts, a cushy government, civil service job where most of the workers produce almost nothing.

The job seeker often has to travel to certain sections of the country for the productive, good paying positions, such as oil and gas work, electrical design, welding, engineering, carpentry construction, and mechanical repairs. Few Americans have the skills and experience for those good paying occupations. Many Americans who have arrest records, not even convictions or prison time, cannot access most employment opportunities.

In medium-sized cities, and which often have a large university and state worker population base, or as we call them in the States, college towns, there are lots of trendy, hipster, cool looking stores with expensive housing, such as ‘artist lofts and studio condos.’ These cities are paradises for the few lucky ones that actually hold good-paying jobs, such as university administrators, tenured professor cowards and high level government workers.

But there are also thousands upon thousands of homeless drifters, tent populations, and the poor that have no work, nor can they get any good work in the future. The local municipal and state governments offer them nothing – except the ugly gaze of the police officer, the local jail, expensive fines, parking enforcers, with the nasty glare of the local citizens who fear ending their lives under such dire conditions. Blood donor banks have lines outside their doors representing the throw away population base. Public libraries, under already scant resources, are now the only public spaces where they can sit and rest without police harassment.

Most of the trendy hipster bars, cafes, movie theaters, restaurants and clubs, charge rip off prices for the basic foodstuffs. Ordering a few rounds of drinks now costs up to 50$, and this includes the taxes and required 20% tips.

Housing costs have quadrupled to the rates of annual inflation. Young people often have to live in ‘communal housing,’ meaning eight people sharing for a four person reserved apartment. If it is a house, a really poor person can find a windowless, dank basement rent space for around 150$. With most of the service industry jobs still paying the bare minimum wage, this sub-standard housing rent has continued to rise.

The political leaders, implying the mayors and city councils, (City Halls), who run these college cities are some of the most hypocritical and vicious criminals in the political field. They regularly use the police against all the ‘dangerous classes,’ especially against African-Americans. Only the gentrification clean ups matter.

These government hacks especially hate armed citizens, yet they have their own police protection and bodyguards. The dishonorable juntas often consider themselves the arbiters of good taste, the arts and culture – as long as the patrons have money to spend in ‘their cities’ of course.

And the many megalopolis locations across the US? They all contain the plagues of American small towns and cities, but their afflictions are a thousand times more serious.

Barbarity and Cruelty flow uninterrupted in those urban infernos. The rule of law means nothing. Only the power of the urban police forces remains supreme. The utterly corrupt politicians and their lackey friends regularly abuse the millions of looted taxation monies.

Landlords transform into bloodsucking, economic vampires and resort to property pimping against their renters. Woe unto the young poor and the poor non-white populations inside of those cauldrons of economic damnation. Their only routes are the military, the prison, drug addiction, suffocating wage-slave labor, or madness. Meanwhile, the imperial masters keep the sinister arts of divide and conquer in place.

No matter what our Leftist enemies, Socialist-Communist whiners, and the other dishonest complainers say, the Amerikan Empire is not in decline. It has yet to perfect its ultimate reign of terror and supremacy of power.  The United States Empire has still not reached the pinnacle of its absolute domination and degeneracy.

We historians also know that all state empires fall, rip apart and come to their ends. This Empire will also fall. We must give it time. And when it does finally fall, it will react with a ferocity of violence that we cannot imagine. This imperial juggernaut will respond through wraths of savagery and unhinged state terrorism.

This particular empire will first implode from within, and the sociopaths that run such a beast, also know this truth. These are the reasons government agencies have stockpiled enormous quantities of military weaponry, and have consolidated unprecedented levels of electronic data collection with rough policing controls. They have also instituted various forms of vigilance in order to cow the domestic population.

A partial list has included interior checkpoints, mass imprisonment, TSA airport harassment and the gradual plots for enabling gun confiscations. Again, this Empire is still in its upper growth stages, and the sociopaths have no scruples in throwing the most horrid of weapons against its home population. Only one empire has used nuclear weapons against civilian populations – and the winner still goes to the United States.

We definitely cannot fight the cabals of evildoers in Washington D.C., nor can we even think of entering their political contests. We don’t have enough money nor any elite connections. This does not mean however that we are helpless victims to their political plotting and violent schemes.

We only have two choices. We could simply forsake our honor and dignity, and willingly submit as slaves.

The other choice is more difficult. This mode of operation rejects any and all collaboration with the current regime, regardless of political party.

We have to first stand guard against any phony moves by the elites to reform such an excrescence when the proles begin to act restless. This Empire can never reform itself no matter what ‘progressive’ or ‘honest’ politician it puts forth, and no matter what the Leftist, activist, progressive mobs proclaim about their new heroes.

The American political elites have their Liberal, no-sell out, reformers ready for public display once the political order breaks down. We Anarchists would never join in the media praise of the fakes, and we will continue to expose all such political candidates as frauds.

We need to sanitize ourselves from their multiple, sophisticated propaganda outlets. The current examples in our contemporary lives include corporate TV media, Hollywood movie previews, Clear Channel-FCC approved-radio commentaries, print newspapers and magazines, street and road billboards, public transit advertising, threatening public messages, and large warning signs.

Anarchists always disregard their staged cultural events. Ignore, ignore – ignore them all. Let their ugly messages invade our minds, and then, just let them leave. This intellectual discipline is very hard to do, but it is not impossible.

The final method is non-participation in the system. No oaths of service, no collaboration, no spying, informing or snitching for our so-called ‘authorities.’ They deserve no respect, nor do they hold any legitimacy to govern us – only punishment for their legal crimes. This punishment will never arrive so long as they maintain their power inside our minds.

Our future has never looked so horrifying. But we had no choice in the time and date of our births. It is never good to look for political struggle. Peace is the better option. But with such a depravity of evil that reigns supreme on this Earth, our honor demands that we stand and fight.

So let us stand strong, bear our burdens with courage, defend human dignity, and always center our minds on the code of honor. The universal code of honor comprises complete honesty, gentleness, friendly and open attitudes, humility, active listening rather than talking, politeness, frugality with possessions, complete generosity to all, and deep sensitivity with compassion to others.

We abstain from taking objects not given to us, aggressive behavior, the abusing of intoxicants, and sleeping around between friends. This code of honor is not easy to practice, but it will shield us from the final apocalypse, the most vile Amerikan Holocaust. Their plans for our extermination are only in the waiting stages.

And never forget: it is often the most reactionary and powerful regimes that experience the first revolutionary cataclysms. No European in the late 1700s could have imagined the Ancient French Empire losing its sacred symbol of absolute monarchy. No European in the early 1900s could have forestalled the Russian Empire rotting away, transformed into the first workers state.

Where honor is most held sacred, and in American culture it is still reigns strong in the South and the Western regions, the first lines of demarcation shall emerge.

Greek polis exampleModern Athensancient rometokyo japanBenin_City, Afriquelagos-nigeria2Ancient Chinese cityshanghai, chinaTenochtitlanMexico-City 

Human civilization has made its own history through the tempests of culture and creation.

But with all of civilization’s benefits, humanity simultaneously cursed itself to permanent warfare. Warfare does not just exist on the battlefields with armies and weapons; it also functions inside the unjust and unequal distributions of class power within both society and culture. The warfare of urbanization has represented one of the most absurd attributes, whirling inside the tragic saga of the human condition.

Humans have left the sanctity of the land, the hearth, and the family, in order to transform themselves into subjects under the weary gaze of the rulers. The subjects receive a new identity, and yet they become targets for both the rulers and the enemies of the rulers. Wherever there are political rulers, there are always enemies. A minute faction from the subject population reaches into the ruling clique, while another minute faction joins the enemy camp.

Some human ideas have been beneficial to civilization, such as fire for culinary, metallic-sculpture and martial arts, and the wheel for transport, industry and the ceramic arts.

The human invention of urbanization helped deliver civilization to Homo sapiens sapiens. The urban subject no longer had the obligation to work inside the Earth and hunt for food. They could attend to their own private gardens and enjoy the bounty of culture found in the city.

But there was also a terrible price on their heads, and a nasty fear had piqued those very subjects. What if the rulers became tyrants and then decided to sacrifice their own subjects in order to hold on to their own power? What if the enemies of the rulers surrounded, starved out and sacked the city, enslaving everything away in chains – including the subjects private belongings, and even destroying completely people’s extended families?

One of Urbanism’s stage right onto human history represented the 6 century BCE. On the Gulf Coast of Mexico lived a great people, referred to later in history, as the people of the rubber, or the ‘Olmecs.’

The land was good. The warm, balmy climate offered an agricultural abundance, yet its tempests disciplined the cities. The winds could bite, and yet they spread their ethereal honey on the plants and maize. The rains sometimes drenched and drowned the unwary travelers. Plants still made love to the rain. The reeds were often harsh to touch, but they helped in maintaining the delicate balance. Everything drank from the earth’s sacred blood, and then it all cascaded deep into the rain’s sacred liquid pools.

In the Olmec world, an impressive city of stone had stood proud to the world, and it possessed a marvelous large pyramid of brown boulder rocks in the center. Around the pyramid were bulky grey temple structures and some thick quarry palaces for the ruler’s family, noble relations, and priests. The massive stone pyramid holding the dark glare, gave the subjects a sense of identity, and it seemed that the calendar rituals and religious festivals truly connected to the earth world at both the cave level and sky worlds.

Sacrificial bloodletting enabled the elites to perform the magic effortlessly. All subjects possessed their blood lines to the city’s elites, whether through artisan, merchant or farmer relations. Their blood ties also ran deep into three distinct categories: territory, family and service-labor obligations.

Everybody had their own economic niche and knew their place within the city. There were no vagabonds or beggars, and no one starved on the streets. There weren’t any issues with festering garbage refuse, nor with rampant disease. The city was actually quite small compared to modern standards. It only had a few thousand residents. But each resident existed as part of a grander family, and an even larger kinship group. Everyone recognized his or her own sacred hearth and home within the great urban polity. The Olmecs were living in an almost paradise.

Yet, the urban polity felt unsettled about the constant warfare, the enemies that led sudden attacks, or even the unknown wrath of natural disasters, such as storms, quakes and floods. Like all things in the cosmos, the times began to change, with war and disaster occurring more frequently and more devastatingly. What was actually changing, if the same rituals of sacrifice and devotions had always stayed the same?

The elite families could change the rules for obligatory labor services and tribute taxes. With the continual wars, they often did demand more from the subjects. Living in a great city was a divine gift, but at the same time, the subject lived in dread of the elites’ magical and violent powers. What if the wars led directly to them? What if the city had actually defeated the enemies, yet the enemies had already destroyed all the family and kin ties?

Better to live free and easy than under the tutelage of a powerful, military dynasty – even with all of the blood ties. The subjects slowly began to leave the cities. They preferred to farm out in the mountains, near the water sources, runs, and forest clearings. Eventually, more people began to leave the city for the basic freedom found in the abundant Earth. About two hundred and fifty years later, after so many more years of warfare and emigration, the magical and powerful city stood abandoned.

The ancient city had its days in the light of civilization, and even the ancient Olmec elites knew that their cities would die in the distant future – just like the old dynasties and the old, decrepit great grandfathers.

Our modern cities are vastly different however. These blights on humanity refuse to die and the political-economic elites that run such cities have used every conceivable criminal trick within the shadowy schemas of history to continue their misrule. Our modern monsters want their hells to live forever in order to burn and flay the ignorant and poor masses. And like always, they seem to get away with their horrifying games of corruption.

Our modern cities have become suffocating nightmares representing the perversions of global monopoly capitalism strangled with rampant state consolidation, street level criminality, institutional corruption, and city hall tyranny. Meanwhile, the urban subjects have to shame themselves continuously in watching the slow dying of the homeless, while enduring the public signs that threaten fines and imprisonment with those public, intrusive billboards that advertise useless crap.

Within the chasm of modern urbanism, most of us must deal with street hustling and the brutality of open poverty. Most terribly, the rulers constantly threaten their own citizens in demanding regular payments for all of this madness. The subjects must submit to unending and augmenting protection monies through rent paying, housing frauds, bad public transit, utility extortions, municipal and sales taxes, street fines, parking fees and wage slavery.

Meanwhile, the urban masses endure the miseries of contaminated dirt, household pests, rude behaviors, flim flam artists, common insults and reckless property pimping. The three wild animals that tend to survive in these environments are rats, cockroaches and pigeons. That our modern, urban populations do not end up as crazed lunatics on the streets, explains the marvelous surviving power of the human will under civilization.

Some crap historians have stated that this urban system of decay has always existed within human civilization. This is another abject and hideous lie. The Greek polis had only few thousand actual citizens. Ancient citizens fully participated in the life of the polis, whether at war, peace, festivals or simply speaking truth to power in the public markets and plazas. No citizen had to live a marginalized existence. Those cities were more like medieval monasteries without all the rules, controls, living in cells, and hiding away from the public. The Greek polis lived as a tight community of citizen-warriors-pleaders engaged in the full plenary of an urban, spiritual life.

The imperial Roman city had changed greatly since the days of Peloponnesian Wars in the Hellenic peninsula, (during the fifth century BCE), but the spirit of the polis still survived – and even as ancient imperial Rome, (around the second century AD), had reached a population level of few hundred thousand.

Urban Romans generally lived in two types of housing, either in the ‘domus,’ or a type of round-square urban house with a garden and front patio, or in ‘insulae,’ which were small apartments in block buildings. These homes had no glass windows and anyone could enter the domus patios and the insulae apartments. The Romans had little need for privacy because the Roman state did not imprison and murder their own citizens over personal conduct. People lived in the public realm because the honor of the community was more important for social cohesion.

The insulae dwellers did not pay our contemporary rent extortions as some historians have stated; instead, the residents of the insulae paid for their housing through labor or service obligations, within the personal political economy where the lesser clients worked for their wealthier patrons. Roman insulae dwellers received a regular dole of bread and some other foodstuffs for basic survival. No Roman complained about such a dole because an urban resident received the basic rights for survival and community support.

All Roman citizens could take part in the political and public life of the market, or the ‘forum.’ Citizens had the right to use the public baths and bathrooms of the cities, called, ‘latrinae.’ All citizens gathered their drinking water, cleaning water and community news at the public fountains. Roman public life also frequented the market stalls where each city street had a particular artisan craft on display, called ‘tabernae.’

Roman elites also built their far off cities, called ‘colonae,’ for a specific population size, and all urban citizens, whether soldier or artisan, possessed full inclusion within the greater urban life. Romanization was not just an arrogant Caesar conquering a territory, it also represented an inclusive, small city for all nations that desiring to live the Roman, urban, imperial dream.

How did our modern cities become the horrors of horrors that they are today? We can thank European imperialism and mercantile capitalism, with their invasions, prisons, epidemics, colonialism, slavery and mass murder, around the middle of the sixteenth-century, or the 1500s.

European Colonialism destroyed the ancient cities and the marvelous wonders around the world. It replaced them with the health horrors that still fester in our days. The European colonial invaders who hated washing and cleanliness wanted to infect the rest of the world with their own miseries. In that sense, they were successful.

The European colonial powers enforced mercantile capitalism through its brutal monopolies, massive land thefts, slave trading and export plantations that worked the kidnapped laborers to death. Mass kidnapping rings located off the coasts of West Africa could always replenish the exterminated labor pool.

European colonial statecraft set up the first prisons, Inquisitions, witch hunting tribunals, and other wondrous torture methods to scare the cowardly. European authorities imposed the first forced conversions in order to exterminate the native cultures. The European colonial city had thus transformed into cauldrons of sickness, disease and the bad death. And like all epidemics, they have spread out into the entire human world.

The European colonial elites further perverted modern urbanism through dividing the colonial city into racial caste and social class sections. There was one destitute section for the colonized victims and the other poor losers, where there was another nicer section, usually around the city center, for the colonial bureaucrats and military commanders, inclusive of wealthy slave traders and slave owners who owned their second homes.

We still see such eyesores today. We have our ghettos ransacked with no jobs or brutal jobs that pay badly, abandoned buildings, disease and rodent infestations, run down, street crime ridden sections of town, and next we have our gentrified, hipster zones where the easy job, six figure salary people enjoy clean, well-stocked supermarkets with eclectic cafe-bar-restaurants. The city’s government juntas don’t care about how many people move into their urban wastelands, which chew out their millions of victims. The more poor vermin that enter, the greater the slave wage, reserve army of labor population pool. These massive, megalopolis cities literally feed from the trough of criminal neglect.

Large cities that are also capital cities are even worse off than the megalopolis cities. A large population of the capital city essentially exists on state parasitism. These state spongers include paper pushing government bureaucrats, military, judicial, legislative managers, political executives, numerous guard-security-police forces, and other useless appendages, such as media hacks, corporate consultants and ideological front groups. They offer no useful skills to society whatsoever – except in maintaining the supremacy of central, state and municipal government power.

There is no hope in changing such blights on humanity and on the Earth. The smart losers become wiseguys, gangsters and street thugs, while the sad others have to either beg for the privilege of becoming a wage-rent paying slave, or the real unfortunates, sensitive others, just abandon all hope and wait to die horribly on the city streets. Suicide through urban neglect.

Many fall into the traps and permanent craters of modern, urban life. Some will die painfully from mental-physical illness, or they will become hopeless addicts partying on bad, cheap drugs. Some others just spend the rest of their days in the prison-gulag-concentration camp system. A few will make it as low-level, legal assassins for the state’s military institution. Eventually, poverty, war and misery will tear apart most of their fragile minds and bodies.

Living within our modern urban pits, the political-economic elites have continued their relentless war against us. We Anarchists know this truth and so we only have one option remaining: we must fight against such injustices through both our dignity and honor.

We can squat abandoned buildings. We could wheat paper and spray paint over their threatening signs, or we can set up spontaneous parties in the city streets. We might also set up free kitchens, guerrilla gardens, and feedings, or arrange a free, bartering market in a public park – or even occupy central city locations and make them our own domains.

We have only our personal wills to mental freedom – these gifts still remain with us.
