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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Anarcho-Historian Lesson #12: Legitimacy, the evil art of statecraft

Human civilization has formed evil monsters beyond the control of our imaginations.

The first atrocity on the contorted path of civilization represented the division of small societies into the common folk and the ‘better folk.’ Those divisions created social class differences. These high partitions within human society fell into socio-economic estates, and there emerged the first class conflicts.

With class conflicts, another historical villain then tainted human civilization: the State. The State appeared as the false arbiter or umpire between the warring classes. The State’s infernal job was to create a phony solidarity through both’ the people’ and ‘the cause,’ or really, language and religion, where there was no ‘unity’ before. The State had to mix the arts of the wizard with the arts of the warrior.

The State merged the priest experts with the war experts, all of which created an administrative class always aligned with the better folk, while secretly united against the common folk. The grand strategy was how to rule over the regular folk who often greatly outnumbered the ruling classes. The burning question for those elites concerned: how to avoid the commoners from discovering the scam, then banding together and just exterminating the usurpers? The ingenious answer shortly arrived through legitimacy, or the evil art of statecraft.

Our eternal enemies, have forever personified the elites, the ruling classes, the State, the authorities, the controllers, and all of our so-called ‘leaders.’ They have mastered legitimacy’s techniques, from around six thousand years ago, during the first reigns of urban civilization, to our actual imperial systems. Some of these systems were absolutely brilliant, and those shrewd state masters designed political systems that have lasted hundreds, if not thousands of years, throughout human history.

The Chinese emperors developed the ‘Mandate of Heaven’ intellectual concept, later mixed with a mutated imperial Confucianism. The Persian emperors developed the first universal, monotheist ideology loyal to the grand emperors: Zoroastrianism. The Mexica-Aztec ‘tlatloani’ perfected the Destructive Ages of the Suns and a ritual calendar that supported such a Mesoamerican hierarchy.

The Hindu Brahmins decreed the ultimate system of purification rites versus impurities, and with all of this craziness, their multiple caste and ‘jati’ declinations. The Greek rulers established the universality of the Greek ‘Hellenic’ language and its ‘cosmopolitan’ writing culture, which eventually signified urban sophistication in the Mediterranean region. The Roman emperors produced the political ideology of ‘civitas’ through the interlocking privileges and duties of ‘a constitution, citizenship, and a refined public life.’ There were also those infamous Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt.

Egyptian Pharaohs, in the land of the Black Nile, founded on the northeast corner of the African continent, utilized three ingenious techniques within the devious arts of state legitimacy. And it was the Pharaohs of the New Kingdom that had successfully used the three most important methods from the occult books of state power, or the deceptive arts of legitimacy, or cultural power.

The first method of legitimacy embodied the recourse to continual warfare, or endless enemies waiting for their own destruction. The second method of legitimacy represented the state mandated choreography of myths, heroic legends, rituals, symbols, iconography, festivals, funerals, public works of grandiosity, such as temples and large monuments, and like always, military displays of might and power. The third method of state legitimacy was elite control of the Egyptian language, mostly illustrated in religious-medical-legal-statecraft codes, and their corresponding sacred meanings behind the sacred symbols.

1540 BCE was the magical and masterful decade when the Pharaohs of the Old and Middle Kingdoms transformed themselves into Emperors of both Lower and Upper Egypt. The rulers would soon recast themselves as the divine spirits or geniuses between the material and the spiritual. The ancient kings remade their rule into the New Kingdom.

The Dynasty of Amenhotep-Thutmose transfigured its power into a political-military-religious-cultural glory for both the rulers and the ruled. Even the defeated and their haters admired the New Kingdom’s military prowess and artistic magnificence. Only some hundred years earlier, the Egyptian rulers had to pay extortion tributes, or taxes, to the Hyksos barbarians that had successfully invaded their lands.

The past was over, and this new dynasty transformed into a resurrected myth of greatness, like the Great Pyramids that still stood majestically at Giza. They had realized that States do have such powers.

The Amenhotep-Thutmose Dynasty found continual enemies to exploit and then defeat, and often brutally. They attacked the southern front of Nubia, demanded regular tribute-taxes, and later attacked the farthest regions of Cush, or northern Ethiopia, and even found the source of the White Nile.

The Egyptian forces next invaded the Barbarians of the West, or the Libyans. Succeeding this attack, they defeated the Hyksos and their other nemeses, such as the Hittites, found in the lands of central Anatolia, or modern Turkey. The Egyptian Empire soon extended its tribute and military domains to the southeast. They attacked the great coastal cities of Beirut, Byblos, Tyre, Sidon, Joppa, Accho, Megiddo, and Askalon, and moved deeper into the East.

The imperial reach continued victorious over the great empires of the Levant, such as the Mitannis, the Hittites and yes, even the Assyrians! Aleppo, Kadesh, Ugarit, Homs and Babylon – all fell to the grand army of the Pharaonic invaders.

This grand-majestic army, shadowing the mastery of Alexander some one thousand and one hundred years later, crossed the Tigris and Euphrates and marched into the lands of Medes-Persia. Did they even cross over to the great rivers of the Indus and Ganges? Only the soldiers of those powerful armies knew for certain.

Once conquered, the defeated had to pay protection monies, or tribute taxes, to the Grand Pharaohs in Heliopolis. They also had to supply allied warriors or mercenaries for continual war, and most importantly, import slaves. All of the conquered cities also had to allow a small Egyptian garrison to reside in their territories.

Even with all of this militaristic conquest; the wars, invasions, enemies, threats, monsters, nemeses, barbarians, savages, menaces, dangers, ultimatums and adversaries – the conflict never seemed to end. There was another war of conquest just over the setting of the sun. The Egyptian Gods of War transfigured into sadistic vampires demanding ever greater sacrifices.

With their greater extortion rackets and taxation schemes, the Egyptian elites under the Pharaonic rule amassed bloated treasuries gushing with the lure of finely made, crafted objects, inclusive of human slaves, all of which transformed into movable capital. The New Dynasty of military conquerors transferred this new wealth into the royal coffers for the lavish display of public theater, grand monuments and choreographed state rituals.

Like New Money or the ‘Nouveau Riche,’ everywhere, and around the world, the state never shirks from showing off its bad taste. Yet, the rulers had learned another valuable lesson: the common folks do enjoy watching from a distance the over the top consumption and grossness of material possessions – all in the pursuit of pride, power and vulgarity. A subject and powerless people love to see power egregiously displayed through their human gods.

The New Dynasty junta of Pharaohs immediately set about its massive public works programs: greater, and even more lavish than before. The Pharaohs had the workers construct monolithic, mini-city temples in their cities of Heliopolis, Thebes, and they even gave patronage to the great architectural wonders of Luxor, Karnak and Amarna.

The Egyptian religious-political calendar filled itself with glorious festivals for the numerous gods of the outer and inner worlds. The calendar also coincided with the astronomical wonders found in the Cosmos in order to convince the people that The New Dynasty was firmly within the route of the Heavens, the Spirits and all of the departed, Noble Souls.

Egyptian priests and scribes clearly understood that Death was the most emotional event in most people’s lives, so the death of the Pharaoh became the über-event, spectacular show for the kingdom. The processions carrying the different tombs and coffins winded around like well-oiled serpents, and even the holy animals inside of the holy temples, which included hawks, jackals, lions and crocodiles participated, all of the holy of the holies had their places in the parades of destiny. Lavishly costumed priests, warriors, administrators, royal slaves and other hundreds of attendants winded their way into the sacrosanct burial chambers.

Priests conducted massive, deep religious rituals, using every form of magic, holy images, music, song, sacred dance, poetry and sacrifice, including incense, flowers, oils, scents, foods, libations, spices and herbs to create a truly hallucinating effect.  This state theater inflamed the five human senses. The watchers understood that the era of one Pharaoh was over. A new era would resurrect and begin again, like great Horus, Holy Mother Isis, and the Holy One Osiris – through their eternal defeat of Seth’s treason.

As the final days of ritual burial finished within the temple, the scribes fashioned steles around all the images of the late Pharaoh-emperor. The steles possessed the sacred language, or hieroglyphics, of ancient Egypt. The priests, administrators and royal families understood the holy code, and they controlled the delivery of the message.

To this day, historians know a good deal about certain Pharaonic rulers, such as their wars, conquests, victories, family dynasties, noble retainers, public works and genius. Yet, we still know very little about every day life for Egyptian farmers.

By controlling the complete language, the meanings and the message, the Pharaoh system of rule would continue for another thousand years, always secure in its ability to dominate, maintain peace, and administer, ‘ma’at, or justice.

Certain bad historians cite those ancient times as particularly unique historical eras, where imperial theater transformed into one of humanity’s most fascinating epochs. Yet, we still live with the historical ghosts and traditions from those ancient days.

Actually, there is another, extremely antagonistic world empire on the contemporary human stage, and this empire is far more dangerous and potent than the ancient Egyptian variety. This empire has the name of the United States of America, and it has been in continual war, both in domestic and foreign conflicts, since its most recent commencement in 1790 AD.

Most Americans cannot go to Washington D.C., the empire’s capital, in order to attend inaugurations and other state sponsored theater. But what about those boxes sitting in our private spaces, which transmit the deep propaganda and addictive spectacle coming from the Empire’s main centers: New York City, Washington D.C., and Hollywood, Los Angeles, California?

The corporate media has a great amount of social control within the Empire’s borders, and it commands the common use of the English language – inclusive of the Empire’s enemies. How many of us use their vocabulary, such terms as ‘Middle East,’ Surgical Strikes,’ ‘Terrorism,’ ‘Peace Dividends,’ ‘Humanitarian Interventions,’ ‘Rogue States,’ and other outrageous concoctions developed from the dark offices of the US Intelligence-Spy-Military-Industrial Complex?

Like the Pharaonic New Kingdom, they all represent the furtive arts of legitimacy, the real cultural power of the State or governments. There is a saying that war is the health of the State, and this is true. But there also exists the spectacle of uniforms and other costumes, and with all of their ritual foolishness, such as flag waving, State of the Unions, annual voting, annual bank holidays, annual tax days and pubic songs in honor of the government at major sporting events, or ‘national anthems.’

Ultimately, the Mainstream News and corporate information sources, and especially on the television, take their complete message, or language, from the same ‘leaders, rulers and autocrats.’ Our media intellectuals have included  government officials, generals, spymasters, politicians, university professors, police chiefs – and other rancid experts found in our societies.

How can we destroy the legitimacy of the State, or the actual empire that currently threatens the Earth and our very lives? We must ignore and turn off their messages, never attend their staged events, verbally reject their ongoing wars of mass murder, never sign our lives away in support of their military or police invasions.

We have to intelligently and publicly discredit, ridicule their actions when necessary. Eventually, the fetid actuality of slavery within such an Empire will invalidate their sociopathic behavior and lies. No legitimacy tactics will work after such a public exposure, since a good minority of the population will reject them completely. Nothing can save them then. But this nefarious empire will not die without the most brutal recourse to violence – unto a most horrifying extermination.

Remember, state legitimacy is more difficult to end than to begin.

Surviving among the cluster bombs of civilization, we have often surmised about our bizarre world as the same, absurd continuum from the beginning of time.

We cannot imagine our preposterous world without its job searches, employment hustles, apartments for rent, bank payment loans, security deposits, credit policies, police forces, prisons, schools, corporations, institutions, hospitals, houses of worship, advertising billboards, street scams, mafia-gang syndicates, criminal sprees, warfare and bombings, propaganda methods, State social control – and all the other criminal vices that plague and pester our everyday lives.

Within the sinister realm of ideologies, our modern world has seen the tumorous growth of outlandish ideological sects that have not only seized the modern State, but have also entered the realms of accepted science and common sense. Some ideological cabals have even taken the reins of social control through subtle hegemonic-state alliances over a short span of time. There are many such strange and nefarious stories from the darkened and hidden annals of human history.

The human mind, or the human brain, has represented one of the most mysterious areas for human research, and at the same time, one of the most desired regions for studying the evil arts of human social control. This explains the nauseating repetition of crap advertising and state-corporate propaganda, or ‘the news,’ found on most radio programs, television screens, and even when we click on to certain websites on our laptops.

Before there existed corporate media outlets under the direction of the political-economic elites, there were other proven methods in the discernment of mental operations. Those ancient methods considered the images, forms, inclusive of symbols, or languages, which seemed to constantly invade the human brain, meaning the intersecting lines and tapes of ego-centric, fantastic, conscious thoughts.

Some ancient religious ideologies preferred to tame the human brain and life actions through the methods of ethical self-systems, such as Confucianism, Jainism, Torah-Legalistic Judaism, Zoroastrianism, African Traditional Religions, Epicureanism, Daoism,  Sikhism and Stoicism. Other religious practices preferred to discipline the mind through the experiences of spiritual transcendence, such as Hinduism, Neo-Platonism, Pythagorean Religion, Neo-Egyptian Religion, Gnosticism, Christian Mysticism, Jewish Kabbala, and African Diaspora Religions. Only one religion was successful in combining both of these methods: Buddhism.

Buddhism denies the existence of the ego-self-soul-spirit bodies, and yet it allows for the Hindu belief in reincarnation-rebirth. It negates the complete idea of a controlling deity over human life, yet it also accepts the influence of malevolent spirits-illusions that infect our minds. Buddhism developed the only comprehensive, ancient method, or practice, in disciplining the human mind.

This mental discipline first emphasizes that we understand a simple truth: our thoughts are mental illusions, which create continual suffering in our lives, since our physical bodies also grow into old age, sickness and death. The second part of the method encourages the middle path of ethical behavior in avoidance of bad karma, or actions, words and thoughts, while engaging our will, or self-discipline, to meditate, or concentrate as much as possible, on our living actuality, such as breathing, walking, lying down, and other common life activities.

The spiritual method requires great self-discipline for the personal conquest of the monkey mind. This is the reason that Siddhartha Gautama, or the Buddha, formed the ‘sangha,’ or the monk practitioners of Buddhism with their shaved heads, brown, crimson, yellow robes, begging canisters and sandals.

About a thousand years later however, another religious mystic would create an even greater method for mind control, and in another sense, he became the first practitioner of modern psychobabble-psychology – although crap history leaves him out of the psycho history lesson.

His name was Iñigo de Loyola. He was a Spanish knight of the lower Basque nobility. In the early 1520s, after a momentous battle against the French in Pamplona, he severely injured his leg during the combat. While bedridden and under severe pain, he almost died from profuse bleeding. He managed to recover, and later began to read books on the heroic lives of the Saints.

How did the Saints manage to go so many days without eating and yet keep their composure, and how did they maintain their dignity and peace of mind even when under physical punishments, mental torments, or the duress of prison? Loyola ultimately got out of bed, but walked with a limp for the rest of his life. He could no longer live as a knight, so he imitated the heroic walks of the Saints.

He gave up his weapons and fine clothes at a shrine across his route in northern Spain, and then wandered barefoot, limping with a staff, and wore a coarse cloak with relic pieces and crosses, only carrying a dirty leather bag to help him along the way. Through this hard journey, during the 1520’s, he began to keep a rough journal.

This journal would later become his famous Spiritual Exercises during the 1530s when he began his university studies to become a priest. By the 1540s, he already had a group of devotees educated in the method of the Exercises. What was inside those exercises that made them so powerful?

The Spiritual Exercises were the first, modern psychotherapy self-help manuals in disciplining the mind. Through his complete change and turnaround, from killing off his old Spanish Knight self, and remaking himself into a Catholic Saint, he attained something that only a human animal could create: the death of the old self into a resurrected new, transformed other – all through simple mind exercises.

A priest who has already inducted himself into the Exercises leads the adept through the four to five-week process. First, the acolyte has to examine his or her life to find the faults, weaknesses or sins, which have kept the person from attaining true spiritual power, or mental freedom and peace.

After confessing and acknowledging one’s sins, and next, actively changing his or her habits in transforming the vices into virtues, the devotee later experiences the life of Christ, and especially his Passion on the Cross through understanding the hard process of personal, mind transformation.

The spiritual adviser or priest leads the adherent through controlled breath work, visualizations, vocal, repetitive prayers, and then participation in the Mass. After each session, he or she feels energized and more transformed, while the follower truly feels the power in belonging to the militant body of Christ. The most important part comes at the end of the session, where the votary learns the discernment of spirits.

The discernment of spirits implies understanding the thoughts, ideas, feelings, experiences, images and beliefs that come into his or her mind. Thoughts of doubt, laziness, sensual pleasure, guilt or nervousness represent demonic attacks, and they are let go, while thoughts or images that bring peace, spiritual rapture and joy come from the Holy Spirit. Once the adept successfully finishes the Exercises, he or she transforms into the disciplined believer-warrior. The worshiper has assumed control over his or her own ‘spiritual mind.’

The Order of Loyola, or the Company of Jesus, was also an authoritarian, military like Company under the direction of the Jesuit General. This mental practice was for the ‘greater glory of God,’ or really, the glory of the Catholic Church. Loyola wanted fanatical believers to defend the Church against the dangers of Protestant heresy, or against any non-Catholic belief systems across the globe.

Less than fifty years after the founding of the Company of Jesus, or the Jesuits, they had controlled most of the Catholic Universities in Europe. They also became the confessors to Catholic monarchs, built Catholic Schools across Europe and the American Continent, and had sent missionaries across the Earth in order to convert the heathens, while the Religious Wars had taken off across Europe. This religious order even became one of the wealthiest religious corporations in human history.

Modern Psychology, or Psychobabble, has used the same methods in recent history. ‘Social Workers’ have manipulated public opinion through the US corporate media, talk TV reality shows, such as ‘Dr. Phil’ and ‘Intervention.’ Psychologists have made strategic alliances with the State through the power of illegally imprisoning, ‘dangerous’ people, while holding full legal powers in giving testimonies in courts of law.

Psychiatrists have gained nefarious profits through their bogus psycho therapy sessions, murderous psycho surgeries and their legal rights in dealing brutal, psychoactive drugs to the unwilling. Psychology has become a respected area of scientific study in universities across the globe.

Since modern psychology’s founding, under the German physiologist Wilhelm Wundt during the late nineteenth-century, this ideology has dedicated itself to controlling and manipulating the human mind. Since its inception, it has been responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths across Europe and North America.

This ideology-pseudo science has mostly annihilated its victims through committing society’s weaker populations into asylums, mental hospitals and sanitariums. . The list of victims has included the autistic, the delusional-imaginative, the outspoken-rebellious, the open homosexuals, the excessively weird, the overly sensitive, the mentally deficient, the anorexic, the obsessive-compulsive, or the artistically strange.

Through its spurious research in ‘experimental’ behaviors, and crimes of staff brutality, neglect, restraints, tortures, psycho surgeries, and forced drugging of lethal pharmaceuticals, this ideological-institution has destroyed millions of lives.

Due to its powers as a respected science of social control, governments, militaries, police forces, corporations, schools and other dictatorial institutions across the societal spectrum, have used psychology as one of their preferred methods in dominance and destruction over others.

A short list of psychobabble’s historical crimes should suffice. The ideology and institution of Psychology collaborated with the Nazi Regime’s mass murder of mentally deficient people in the 1930s. Due to their sinister success in this psycho-operation, the Nazis went after Jews, Gypsies and other hated social groups during the 1940s.

The psychobabble pseudo science used the surgery-torture of lobotomies on outspoken-rebellious individuals from the 1930s-70s, such as Rosemary Kennedy, the actress Frances Farmer, the musician Josef Hassid, the painter Sigrid Hjerten, and thousands of other homosexuals, artists, non-conformists and other imaginative dreamers that seemed too weird. Most of the victims of lobotomies either died soon after or survived as incapacitated blobs.

In the 1970s, with lobotomies exposed as a form of torture and murder, and yet none of the ‘psycho doctors’ doing any prison time, psychobabble went on the offensive with its APA organization, the American Psychological Association, the Vatican of Psycho quackery.

Each successive year, this organization’s bible, Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, seems to grow exponentially. Even a nervous tic could put one on the list of disorders, and often the same psycho babble experts have suffered from the same neuroses. These ‘experts’ even had ‘homosexuality’ listed as one of the diseases to cure.

The Psycho mob soon made important ties with the federal, state and municipal governments in the United States, giving quacks full legal rights in stating court testimony and holding the legal rights to commit people involuntarily. Psychology had trumped the Bill of Rights to the US Constitution. All of this didn’t stop the tortures however, and so the Psycho punishers began to use the horrific practice of electroshock therapy, or giving voltage shocks to the brains of rebellious mental patients.

They also went on the offensive in the corporate sphere, helping to create the Biotech monolith in legally dealing the deadly, psychoactive drugs, such as Prozac, Lithium and Thorazine, which opened a flood gate of profits for both the Biotech companies and the Psycho practitioners. This practice also opened the floodgates to serial killers and mass shooters, which have become part of the diseased American cultural dynamic.

A few Psycho monsters had earlier collaborated with the US Government of Sociopaths in some very evil behavioral experiments during the 1940s and 50s. There was Project 4.1, which studied radiation effects on Marshall Island natives who had been victims of the US government’s use of nuclear testing nearby, and the Tuskegee Study, where US government doctor-thugs and psycho quacks injected syphilis into African-American men in the South in order to study the mental effects of the disease. And there was the most famous of all, Project MK-ULTRA, where the CIA and psycho experts heavily dosed US military personnel, patients in mental hospitals, prisoners and prostitutes, with LSD, in order to find a ‘truth serum.’ Some of those unsuspecting participants were never the same people again.

During the Satanic sacrifice-Child molestation scare of the 1980s in the United States, Psycho hacks were found in the corporate media defending the discredited use of ‘repressed testimonies’ in children, something not seen since the European witch trials of the 1640s.

Throughout this same decade of the 1980s, the Psychology Mafia also instituted a terrible scam on rebellious teenagers from white, middle class backgrounds. With the collusion of disreputable Insurance companies, both parents and psychologists could involuntarily commit rebellious adolescents into mental hospitals or special homes that tried to reform the defiant young people. The parents paid the Insurance companies, while the Insurance companies, mental clinics and Psycho gangs reaped the profits.

These same mental centers often recruited local thugs and weirdos to control the kids, while a few of those brutes even got away with legal murder through using restraints and tortures on the kids. This crime syndicate especially flourished in the state of Florida. The evil connivance of Psychobabble, the State and the Insurance Mafia, destroyed thousands of American families due to neurotic parents duped into imprisoning their own children.

Psychologists have collaborated with the US military through its ‘Psychological Operations,’ while sanctioning the use of torture and murder during its recent genocides in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Finally, I remember watching many of the Psychology graduate students when I was a doctoral student in history. Unfortunately, the art of history shared the same building complex as that quack ‘social science.’ Those Psychology doctoral students were often bizarre and anal, and a few of them were actual wing nuts. Were these the experts that were going to help the mentally afflicted? Psychology has even tried to capture of the art of history with its very own version of psychohistory!

Psychology-Psychobabble has been an integral state ideology through its arts of social control. There is nothing scientific about it. The Modern State and all tyrannical institutions, such as schools, cops and the military, adore it, while the Psycho leaders always eye newer and weaker victims to liquidate and murder.

We Anarchists know the truth about this disguised evil covered in the cloak of science and ‘normalcy.’ We must also fight their leaders as we fight the State, the cops, the rich elites, the powerful and the corporations. Ultimately, we should even refrain from using their terms and vocabulary, such as ‘psychopath, neurotic and schizo,’ which have become part of our common English vocabulary – and we should try to never see, speak with, or pay for a visit to one of those despicable fakes. Our Anarcho-spirit of liberty would engender a ‘mental illness’ and a forced imprisonment in one of their dungeons.

The Psychobabble Quack Cult is now the State’s and the Elite’s most trusted co-conspirator.
