There exist certain unmistakable symbols and ideas, which define a political movement or an ideology.

For Communism, it is the hammer and sickle over the bright red flag, the labor gulag and Stalin’s execution lists. For Fascism, it is the strutting dictator stapled with phony medals, goose stepping SS soldiers, the swastika and the death camps, experts in the art of murder. For Liberalism, it is the grey institutional, corporate-bank building filled with bureaucratic drones, the local white stone courthouse, the police station, jail-prison with bars, the office of the local sheriff, and the brown brick, state school, with yellow school buses added for a little touch of class.

But what exists for Anarchy? We have the classic A with the circle around it. We have the long N shaped symbol with an arrow moving upward and a circle around that. And we have a black flag with some red in it – with part of the flag having a star, or even a fist, or whatever. There is also the Anarchist Black Cross, a type of Greek Cross or a Medical Cross, which usually has a clenched fist on the top of the vertical bar. We can also add a punk looking individual to the mix, and some Anarchists have even appropriated the classic black and white pirate flag with the skull and crossed bones. But there is an idea that maintains its constancy within all Anarchy practices: the Class War.

How many memories and bad experiences do we continue to hold from all of our crap jobs history – or where we still trudge and grudge our lives away?

All of my diverse jobs in my personal life were bad ones, including the one that I held for the most labor time of my life: as a lowly paid, graduate teaching assistant at some western land-grant American university. My second longest work stretch was my time surviving in the US Military. I was lucky to not get kicked out of that one.

My employment history mostly shows a shattered list of short work stints, about a few months at the most, and in the end, the owner bastards often fired me. I am damn proud of this spotted work record too. I have openly lived my life as a true warrior inside of the Class War. I have never traded nor soiled my honor, nor my dignity, to a boss-manager parasite.

Believe it or not, I’ve actually worked hard – if the job interested me. I have always arrived on time to work, and while inside of the wage struggle, I got straight into the labor intensity. I have never liked just sitting or standing around, and I always tried to find some initiative or creativity on my own in order to learn more things. But in the end, we all live under the loaded shotgun of the Class Struggle. The loaded shotgun has always aimed at us – the regular workers, the drinking class, the working class.

The commandeering class parasites don’t see it that way however. They want to avoid the most work as possible in order to collect a higher salary with lots of benefits – the worker ants damned! Those losers constantly delegate the hated work jobs, often cleaning or organizing tasks, onto the lower worker peons. Those hacks also have the ear of the owners. And the owners only want one thing – profits!

This is the Class Struggle: the owner wants more work out of the wage slaves, while also hoping to cut down the employee wages in order to increase profit margins; meanwhile, the workers want to conserve their energy for life outside of work, while hoping for a measly pay raise – maybe some time in the distant future.

Since its ugly surfacing some hundreds of years ago, Capitalism has waged a most ruthless war or struggle against the lives of most humans. Whether we like it or not, we all must survive in the Class Struggle, and fight until the bitter end – inside of the Class War.

The owners holding the capital have waged a relentless war against us. Our wage slave jobs slowly rot out our bodies, and eventually clog our vital energies, and so we must fight back. We battle the owners every day on the job, or we fight back as consumers against their crap products, or we even expose the owners’ dishonest practices through writing scathing reviews on the Internet. There are many more ways to struggle.

There is also sabotage. Sabotage does not just imply purposely breaking the machines; although, in extreme situations, this works too. It can also mean following every single rule in the business in order to slow down production or any system of overwork. It can even mean informing the state authorities about the owner’s negligence of the laws. Yes, we can use the divide and conquer method against our foes, since they have continually used similar methods against us.

Another sabotage tactic is giving out the product for free to customers in order to show our appreciation for choosing the business! This has also worked splendidly in the past. The owner crooks can lambast all they want about stealing, but this is just giving the customer a bit more appreciation. Customer service is king – and especially under Global Monopoly Capitalism that truly rules our evil world.

Capitalism steals more than our wages. The system robs us through its flimsy tax scams, which we lower orders can never use, such as unemployment and social security money. In the United States, most employers reject the unemployment claims of fired workers most of the time – and the corrupt judges generally rubber stamp the boss’ dirty deeds. We can only receive some federal, state and city back taxes, if we make less than the poverty wage. Anyway, the poverty wage is so low that it exists as a worthless system for any wage earner.

The thugs in the US federal government are getting a little nervous however. They recently started an Earned Income Credit scam that allows the peons to keep a little crumbs from the ‘taxed money.’ Nice try. Those band aids never help.

Capitalism also robs the lowly paid wage workers grievously through stealing their surplus labor. Every day that we arrive to work and labor hard, we actually create a surplus product ready for sale. Our unpaid surplus labor creates a surplus of value, or wealth, for the owners. Yet, we only receive a low wage that barely pays for our dismal lives of bill paying, taxation and basic cost of living, such as food, housing and clothes.

Nowadays, many wage slaves have to work two or three jobs in order to live in an sub-standard apartment. Landlords have also become desperate within this capitalist shell game, and in many small cities and towns, ‘with jobs,’ they have lifted the prices for basic living into the American megalopolis price zones of New York and San Francisco.

Many Amerikan landlords have transformed themselves into property pimps who push anyone who can’t pay their exorbitant rents into the poorer or rural suburbs, such as the young, lumpen poor and minorities.  The displaced poor then have to flush their money into urban scam ‘public transportation,’ which costs more than actually driving a car around the city. Other wage slaves living in the more rural parts will have to dig deeper in their pockets for paying gas costs, state mandated taxes, state mandated insurance and auto part-repair bills. And these people still have to buy decent food, wear cool clothes – and possibly enjoy their scant leisure time.

The owners have successfully colonized and scammed our leisure activities. Most of our ‘fun activities’ cost something: bars, restaurants, cafes, concerts, festivals, amusement parks, outdoor sports, parties, lotteries-casino gambling, etc. We have to throw our money away to another group of owners in the ‘service industry,’ and whose members often represent the more noxious elements of the small business owner class. Going out and enjoying our lives, during ‘our time off,’ is not so cheap anymore.

We must structure our crowded lives around our ‘jobs.’ which slowly degenerate our meager existence. The boss-owner group can take off whenever he or she wants, and do whatever he or she wants during work hours: a golf game, a two-hour lunch, a visit to family, personal shopping, or even just a light nap or refreshing break. We continue working, and worst of all, the job steals away our precious personal time – and sadly, our fleeting youth. The owners makes the work-life schedules, not us.

The owner-bosses like to take multiple week vacations throughout the work year. Few wage slaves get the old, two-week paid vacation from the distant past. If you ask for it, it tells the boss that you want fewer hours – and he or she will soon terminate your employment.

Most wage work doesn’t even have work contracts anymore. The owner can fire the employees at will, and they often do just that – for whatever reasons. There are so many other wage slaves, and especially young ones, banging on the doors. The owner can just go down the list and call up the most pliable worker.

In some service professions in the US, such as restaurants-bars, distributing centers, cleaning services and construction-repair work, the bosses have a massive pool of illegal immigrant workers to exploit. Other businesses can use a pool of legal, foreign visa students-workers. The owners inside the education, nursing and software industries exploit this privilege all the time. I have yet to see the federal, state or local governments punish those dishonest owner crooks who prefer to hire non-Americans. If you can hire a foreigner to do the same job, worker harder, and for less pay – than why not?

Ultimately, more and more owners refuse to pay the full amount of salary when they fire employees, or when the employees quit. Fighting for the rest of the pay is simply not worth it, since the legal system always backs up the owner class, and the proof of outright theft is on the employee. How many employees have the time or energy to fight back? If the wage slave does not have any family money to help him or her, then he or she had better find another crushing, soul killing job – or he or she will then join the ranks of the homeless ‘bums,’ or drifters.

The worst part of the story is still not over. As this Global Monopoly Capitalist system becomes more outrageous and more brutal, so there emerges a smaller pool of available jobs. The only jobs left will be those high paying administrator-commandeering manager-executive class jobs. Those people do no useful work whatsoever, except attend meetings and pass e-mails. Those jobs are for the people who have attended highly rated universities and have some wealthy family contacts. This leaves the rest of us thrown into the Capitalist Maelstrom.

The lucky ones will have some important manual skill where they can find work as ‘independent contractors’: electricians, builders, plumbers, welders, or simply fix-it-all, jack of all trades, people.

For the rest of us, losers, the future enters a biting darkness. I include myself in this group, since PhD bums in history were stupid enough to believe that there were jobs for intellectually smart-street wise dummies. In the past there were job prospects, but the sociopaths that hold power in the Amerikan Empire don’t care anymore. Why should they? Most PhD recipients have transformed themselves into pathetic cowards. How can any PhD with any sense of honor and dignity work as an adjunk, part-time teacher for less pay that any McJob dweeb?

What can we do to forestall such a monstrous future waiting for us?

We must embrace the Class War, since the elites, the top owner class within the boards of directorships of the major corporations and banks, including their top political class minions, have already declared war against us – from the beginning of human history. Before it was the master-slave relationship, now it is the owner-wage slave relationship.

We have only two choices ahead. First, We could bow our heads and keep looking for different work situations, and if we have family money to help us out, then we can survive with odd jobs.

The other option is that we can reject work altogether and just become traveling bums or drifters – like the hobos of the Great Depression. Yes, I mean drop out of the work force, travel around to different parts of the country, and find the odd job for some desperate cash.

Yet even this old ‘job search’ system is dying. Most of the ugliest, slave-like jobs either require a background check of a few pages, inclusive of a drug test, or they are only reserved for the illegal immigrant slaves who will desperately do any job, including septic cleaning and slaughterhouse killing.

The Class War continues: always and forever!

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.

The more laws and restrictions there are, the poorer people become. The sharper men’s weapons, the more trouble in the land. The more ingenious and clever men are, the more strange things happen. The more rules and regulations, the more thieves and robbers. If a government is repressive, the people become treacherous.
Lao Tzu – Tao Te Ching – chapters 57-58

Throughout the writing of my essays on this blog, I have often preferred my personal word constructions. I believe that I have helped explain the legal miasmas and historical crimes that all states, thrones and empires have birthed, nourished and proliferated against humanity throughout history. Sometimes though, I must rely on others for the perfect words describing a most horrific actuality.

But in this particular case, a religious mystic from the sixth century BCE in China, during the imperial reign of the Zhou, had spoken a more profound truth. How funny that only 2,500 years later, as a historian, I must quote from that same author. The genius of history always embraces the brute of absurdity.

The same old state and government criminals are at it again: fashioning more and more laws and thereby creating more felons, while managing more collection rackets – always constructing more prisons.

The old Zhou imperial leaders could not have imagined how a contemporary imperial state in Washington D.C. has now transformed itself through its own cracked mirrors – through the lens of its own so-called enemies. These legal thieves and robbers currently feed at the top of the pyramid scheme, and the vulture’s hunger has taken over their souls. It has led them into the obese feeding frenzy of the legal sociopath.

The stories of terror and horror even outpour into the corporate crap media. Government agents arrest and jail small farmers, and then steal their personal property over some petty little law that the local political hacks did not know existed some months previous. An unwary driver goes through a particular speed trap where local police bums confiscate the person’s hard-earned cash over an illegal search of the vehicle. A small business owner suffers a raid and confiscation of his property over a few curious cash deposits totaling under 10,000$. A homeowner loses her house of 40 years due to a missed payment of a ‘property tax.’ The list is so horrendous and long that this essay could not even do a minimum justice for the millions of those victims from such legal crimes.

Recently, I read about one of the more corrupt cities in the northeast United States, which now has a peculiar habit of stealing people’s homes due to finding their sons and daughters using illegal drugs inside of the same houses. What type of legal monster could fashion such an injustice, such outrages?

Throughout world history, laws have existed as the ‘other means’ of gaining power over the weaker parts of society. The other time honored method is simple warfare, inclusive of sanctions, invasion, mass murder, brutal reparation payments against the defeated, and occupation. Except for the Amerikan Empire, political elites throughout history have often used the latter method against the ‘foreign’ enemy.

Law is not, nor has it ever been, about justice. Law or the legal code is the most important tool within the apparatus of power. Through legal statutes, the powerful have the freedom to use whatever methods imaginable of legitimate-institutional violence against their weaker targets.

Legitimate violence has always implied the state, or any other elite faction that controls the political machinery within a particular society. For the elites, the laws represent justice because they maintain the things as they are, or the ‘social peace.’ For those under the Law, or that have to obey the enforcers of the Law, law is just another form of tyranny included with social customs, legal institutions, and commonly accepted ideologies or hegemonies.

Although the law is a brutal arbiter of legal violence, it also has the respect of the lower classes in society. The reason for this respect is that the law gives a voice to all accepted societal members. The law, in the face of the upper class judge, might not respect the voice of the unemployed beggar, but at least the beggar has a chance to speak, or plead his or her case.

The only classes of persons that the law has usually failed have been the slaves and the social outcasts. The slave loses all civil respect and legal privileges, and becomes a socially dead piece of property. The social outcast is a despised internal enemy that the general population fears, inclusive of both the elites and the poor.

This putrid legal-justice schema has been the functioning code of interpersonal disputes for hundreds of different cultures, and during thousands of years of world history.

But something has radically changed inside the recent Amerikan Empire in regards to the Law. The federal government, state governments and municipal governments have corrupted the law system into an attack mechanism that threatens, intimidates and harasses most of its citizen victims.

American citizens do have a Constitutional Bill of Rights to protect them, but the current practice of law has thrown out this same Bill of Rights through the dictatorship of ‘judicial precedent.’ In other words, the legal authorities can now twist and pervert the Law through their own political or prejudiced whims or legal judgments.

The laws do not exist for the lawgivers, but for the law takers – the unwary subjects. The lawmakers purposefully contrive and distort the laws, so that the weaker elements of the lower classes fall into various legal traps currently set up for them.

The legal traps include diverse nickel and diming mechanisms, such as the multiple fees to use the courts, and ticketing for the those that step over the movable legal boundaries. The authorities of course move and remove the boundaries constantly. Meanwhile, the lawmakers continually reward both themselves and their enforcers with legal immunities from such flexible legal traps.

In some states, such as California, Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey, the legal codes, or ‘revised statutes,’ now encompass volumes upon volumes of contradictory and outrageous decrees that have even surpassed the old Jewish Law found in the Torah, or the Five Books of Moses, from Genesis to Deuteronomy.

Even the Roman Empire would periodically tear away bad laws made by bad rulers. In the actual Amerikan Empire they do none of this. Once enacted, bad laws and even criminal laws stay on the books forever, and this explains why the state attorneys always try to keep the innocent behind bars, because if all the innocent prisoners rotting in the Amerikan gulag had their freedom, then most Americans would realize the total criminality of the legal system.

The Amerikan two-tied Legal System has turned into a legal miasma, creating the monster of Judge Political Hack fed through the criminality of creating more laws for the sake of instituting more laws. All of this legal madness receives its grease through the machinations of the Politician Sociopath.

This total political scam entails supporting a supposed just law, first through the entrails of the corporate media. ‘The Public’ seems to support the proposal. But then in closed chambers, the politicians and their lawyer minions build an excrescence of twined injustice. Even some judges have gasped in outrage at the results. Most criminal defense attorneys stand aghast with outright disgust.

Now across our Amerikan nightmare of dictatorship and monopoly capitalism, former crimes now exist as lawful practices of the state. The Domestic Secret Police, or the FBI, legally use the criminal system of entrapment against America’s Muslim population. There are now hundreds of Muslims rotting for life in prison due to not committing any crimes.

First they came for the despised minorities, but they are currently using entrapment on anybody and anywhere across this sickly empire. All state enforcers regularly use disreputable snitches, narcs and turncoats that have had their lies stamped with the legal seal of approval.

Police departments in collusion with state or district attorneys have increased the criminal practice and scope of civil forfeiture, where they arbitrarily rob regular citizens’ properties stating that their properties were some how connected to ‘criminality.’ If the robbed citizens want their properties returned, then they have to go through a very expensive legal system that will eventually break them economically.

State police forces, or any state enforcers, including jailers and prison officials have regularly used cruel and unusual punishments against prisoners for any minor infraction against the ‘prison rules.’ They have forced sick inmates to die cruelly in cells without receiving their medicines. They have even flayed off the skin of prisoners through flushing burning water on their bodies. Other sociopathic punishments have included forced feedings, denying decent medical care for the dying, forced drugging, pile ons of prison guards, and policemen that often suffocate the victims. Other tortures have been excessive beatings where four or more guards beat the prisoner to death or leave them paralyzed, or leaving the prisoner to rot in the solitary hole, so the prisoner becomes permanently brain-damaged. All of the state murderers have received some form of legal immunity.

The state thugs now recognize the criminal practice of forced or beaten confessions as reliable evidence.

The crooked politicians have increased the felony loads as the prisoner population has also increased substantially. Now living and enjoying life has become a felony. If a poor person wants to escape the misery of urban poverty through taking a hard drug escape, driving a vehicle fast without a license around town, or setting up a spontaneous street party with lots of drinking – these acts could land that person in prison as a felon, and destroy his or her chances of ever getting a job.

The right to trial by jury has been lost for most Americans. Now the district attorneys simply pile on the felony counts before sentencing. The overworked defense attorney then has to recommend his or her client to do the plea bargain flim flam game. The accused will have to do some prison time over a lesser crime that he or she did not even commit.

In many parts of the US, we still have the freedom to buy guns, yet we lack the rights in using them. Even in self-defense cases, we will still have to undergo some type of criminal or civil trial. How many Americans have 20,000$ in capital reserves for all the necessary legal fees?

We supposedly have the freedom to travel too. But as we drive on the highways and byways in this land, the state and local police gangs wait furtively off the sides of the roads in order to trap us for speeding or other minor moving violations, such as passing without using signals, or suddenly swerving over the shoulder line. Near the border areas, the federal police stop all vehicles and ask intrusive questions. Most states have regular police checkpoints for DUIs, license and registration checks, safety checks, seat belt checks, insurance checks and even drug dog searches.

And yet with all this repression and lack of any real freedom, the state crooks regularly nickel and dime us through periodically raising the sales taxes, marriage taxes, death taxes, service taxes, utility taxes, property taxes and annual state revenue taxes. And there are more taxes and fees that the madmen and women dream up. We continue to pay them as extortion rackets because if we stopped paying them, then the full fury of the Law would fall mercilessly upon us

The Amerikan imperial state has bound us within the black widow spider webs of legal miasma. But we are even worse off than this terrible actuality. Those holding power honestly believe that their legal crimes entail legal justice. We are now at the mercy of unrelenting and pitiless monsters. Hollywood horror movies have referred to them as sociopaths. The terrible reality is that it will only get worse.

Thankfully, an ancient Chinese seer could point to such a ghastly future.
