Justice signifies a somewhat loaded, strange word.

Nowadays, the state thugs in the Amerikan Empire who scream the loudest about justice have also been its worst abusers against US citizens. Police and prosecutors normally put the word justice on their buildings, cars, uniforms, and within bizarre emblems that hang on their prison walls. The British writer George Orwell predicted this deranged behavior in his great book, 1984, (published in 1948), about the destruction of language, such as the term, peace, which really meant unending war and endless enemies.

The Amerikan Empire currently labels insecurity and fear mongering as security. High unemployment, lack of any social safety net for most Americans, and higher trading volume on the Stock Market, possess the label of economic recovery. The list of official lies, state corruption and elite criminality fills volumes from the pages of world history.

One peculiar ideology has helped twist human languages and meaning destruction during its long reigns of terror and error – and it still works wonders to this very day. This ideology birthed out of a group of west Asian people who called themselves Jews during the sixth century BCE. They were one of the captive nations under the Persian-Medean Empire at that time.

The Jewish elites had performed a miracle of language. They had codified diverse religious texts, taking stories from the Zoroastrian Avesta, picking laws and customs from the ancient Babylonian city states and the Assyrian Empire, and adding some religious mystical concepts from various, regional religious rites, such as the Carthaginians, Palestinians and Egyptians. They claimed to discover a righteous and brutal God in continual war against a despicable world order under the darkness of idolatry.

Those Jewish intellectuals transformed their holy book, called ‘Tanakh,’ into an often contradictory and bizarre hodgepodge of minute, regulatory, religious laws, such as Torah and Mitzvot, all of which was under a blood lineage priest class.

Their holy cannon also included a second section of prophetic dirges related to retribution and vengeance, or end times prophecies, such as Daniel, and the other Prophetic Books or Nevi’im. The third section regarded religious chants, psalms and miscellaneous religious axioms, such as Proverbs and Wisdom, or Ketuvim. In relation to the Torah, or the Five Books of Moses, were ancient Levant lore and legends, Joshua and Judges, and political-historical rival narrations, Kings and Chronicles.

The Jewish priests were the first people in human history to create a religious nation, with its temple center in Jerusalem, from a complete compendium of books, now called the Old Testament. In past history, it was the other way around. Those priests were quite successful in their religious-nation construction. But their religion of intolerance, authoritarianism and vengeance could only succeed, if they maintained an autonomous religious empire within a land mass continent, which also held much stronger pagan idolatrous empires.

After the full dedication of the rebuilt Second Temple, about a hundred and fifty years later from the Return of Exile, they soon had problems with the Seleucid Greeks. Then came the Romans, which also led to some jurisdiction issues. The Romans would eventually destroy the Temple and the city of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. Those Romans had mistakenly thought that they had done finally away with the annoying nucleus of judeo-monotheists.

We now know that the monotheists had their final laughs inside their own secret chambers. Judeo-Christianity eventually took over the Roman Empire by the sixth century A.D. Around a thousand years later, monotheism had fulfilled its long journey of control, but it was still not finished.

During the previous, fifth century A.D., the Christians had been in full battle mode, which was their modus operandi from the beginning. Their religious structure of bishops, priests and deacons actually resembled the efficient structure of the Roman army. The Christians revived the old Jewish prophetic tradition through the influence of mad preaching monks of the desert and of the cities. Like the Jewish priests of ancient times, the Christians began to write extensively against pagan intellectuals, philosophers and even against their old Jewish forebears. Bishop Saint Augustine of Hippo represented one of those most effective polemicists.

Using the same methods centuries earlier, the Christians, specifically Saint Jerome, had finally codified their own holy compendium of books, now called the New Testament. They even took the Old Testament as their own and transcended everything into the Holy Bible, or the Holy Book. All the other circulating Gospels, Early Church histories, Epistle letters, and prophetic texts, mostly related to the Gnostics, entered the dustbin of rejected accounts.

This massive organizational and militant project was only in its beginning stages however. The Christian movement moved into the full public sphere of spiritual and military agitation, while conducting religious rallies of revenge against their pagan enemies and diverse idolaters, such as the Neo-Platonists, Jews that refused the Christ, Mithraites, followers of the Goddess Isis, or anybody that simply stayed loyal to the Greco-Roman, Celt or Germanic religious traditions. The Christians especially proved virulent against their religious rivals, called ‘heretics and schismatics,’ such as the Manichaeans, Gnostics, Monophysites, Donatists and Arians.

On a hot day in March, 415 A.D., the Christians ordered the pagan woman philosopher, Hypatia, burned alive in the main square of Alexandria. The Christians would continue their mass murder of religious enemies for centuries to come. The authoritarian and Zoroastrian, Neo-Persian empire at that time, had suddenly found itself the lone defender of religious toleration!

Within this historical period, Christian mobs led by the mad monks and bishops soon burned the great libraries of Antioch and Alexandria to the ground. Why did the Christians support the burning of libraries? The thousands of rolled scroll books stored in those centers represented the most serious threats to the power of Christianity.

Christianity’s ideological power resided, and still resides, through its own narrow definitions of the most basic terminology within human civilization. Christianity has had its own restricted definitions for the most basic of words, such as belief, justice, good, evil, grace, understanding, truth, peace, hope, compassion, virtue, life, death, light, darkness, rebirth, suffering, pain, joy and freedom. Christianity, like other religious movements on the Earth, had even taken some of its lore and legends from rival religious movements, such as the ancient legends of the Buddha.

Christianity representing the only true faith has always demanded a strict adherence to literate dogma. Although it claimed its powers through faith, Christianity has always maintained some legalistic standards. It had to do this if it wanted to survive. Christianity demands total subservience to its doctrines. There are no alternative routes to salvation.

No other religious ideology in world history developed Crusade armies of religious fanatics to murder their religious enemies full-scale, including all women and children, like they did during the sack of Jerusalem July 15, 1099. Likewise, no other religious organization developed military orders, such as the Teutonic Knights in the Baltic region or the Knights of Santiago in northern Spain, to publicly hunt and murder pagans or apostates, as both groups were active during the 15th century. No other religious ideology in world history developed religious orders, such as the Franciscans and Dominicans to publicly fight heresy, institute anti-idolatry crusades, and set up mission stations that imprisoned the savages of ‘no religion,’ which they did to the California natives during the late 1700s.

Christianity is the only world religion that constructed an efficient, legal machine to destroy and murder heretics, or any other free thinkers, contrary to the doctrines of the official faith. The institutional name was the Inquisition, which actually lasted for six hundred years, 1230-1830 A.D.

Christianity is the only religion that has sent out to the world its innumerable missionaries, or really culture destroyers, or even more so, the first non-governmental agency subversives, which enabled the larger and sinister European empires to control vast amounts of lands in the Americas, Pacific, Africa and in Asia from the 1500s until today.

The cult of Judeo-Christianity has fomented multiple wars of conquest to destroy its endless enemies across the globe, like it did in Spain during the 1930s, while it has instituted internal wars of extermination, which they did against women, labeled witches during the 16th and 17th centuries. It even forced young girls to live the rest of their lives imprisoned in convents during that same period. Finally, the churches have always instigated violence against the Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jewish ghettos that lived under their domains.

Christian monotheism represents the most extreme ideology that has repressed and mercilessly persecuted freedom fighters who dared to practice or defend the basic love-making instincts of humanity, whether auto-eroticism, homo-eroticism or any other act of eroticism outside of marriage. Behind almost every modern reactionary political movement, or movement against personal freedom, or any cult demanding some type of censorship, even bans or control of art, there exist activist-fanatics, often found in various extremist sects, while feeding within the multiple cocoons of Christianity.

Due to Judeo-Christianity’s powers and successes in fomenting wars, continually sending out missionaries and demanding the sacrifices of millions of souls, other world religions have tried to become just as militant, such as Islam, Buddhism, Judaism and Hinduism.

Yet no other world religion or secular ideology can compete with the power of Christianity. This religious ideology now has the most adherents in the world. Christianity’s historical methods have explained clearly the reasons for such success.

The real agenda of Christianity has been extremism, the outrageous and imaginative creations of monsters and evil representations, continual and militant warfare, the cruelest methods of torture and violence, deep persecution-paranoia complexes, obsessions with the control of others, the ceaseless murdering of enemies, and it has been one of cultural foundations for modern Fascism.

The true hero of the passion of Christ, was not the whipped god-man hanging on the cross, but the traitor-snitch, Judas, who allowed the scriptures their ultimate fulfillment. He then repented of his sin and later hung himself all alone on that dark hill. His Passion was the Gospel Truth.

The true spiritual god of Christianity was not the mystical spirit of the Christ, but Satan, the God and Prince of this World, using whatever means necessary to rule over the souls of humanity. The Glory of Christian Civilization was the Italian Renaissance, and its Bible was Machiavelli’s, The Prince.

How did a religious ideology masking such hidden evil take over so many nations and empires across world history? Like Constantine, the roman general usurper turned emperor, the criminal state easily spotted Christianity’s power through its militant and vicious religious practices. The state loves war, and any religious ideology that embraces it tends to work fine within the power arrangement. Christianity has often molded itself to the whims of pliant states. For example, Christianity fully supported and encouraged genocidal African slavery in the Americas, and its corresponding ideological lie, the heinous lie of racialism.

But with Christianity’s heinous history, it has also breathed a double-edged sword against power. The Christian religion has also stabbed mortal wounds into crooked state apparatuses when they have least expected it.

Anarcho-historians ought to remember that Christianity was the first revolutionary organization in world civilization. The elites and the state both know this truth, and this often explains their ambivalence and secret fear of Christianity’s militant powers. Christianity can become the greatest defender of the state criminals – and yet, it can always turn completely around – and transform itself into the state authorities’ most pressing internal enemy.

World history supports this thesis. The first uncompromising abolitionists in the British West Indian colonies during the nineteenth-century were Baptist preachers. During the English Civil War of the seventeenth-century, the most radical revolutionaries were the Christian Diggers and Levellers. Frances’ most resolute and intellectual defenders of the Nation during the seventeenth-century, versus the degenerate Monarchy of Louis XIV and his palatial paradise of Versailles, were the religious movements of the Calvinists and Jansenists. The strongest political opposition against the medieval English tyrant, King Henry II, had the face of Beckett, the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Catholic monarchs united in unison to destroy the Jesuit Order during the eighteenth-century. They knew that the Jesuits possessed more popular admiration fro their subjects than for the sacred monarchies.

Christianity has also spawned the great activist work of the Quakers, the revolutionaries of John Brown’s raiders against the Slavocracy in the US during the 1850s, the civil-rights agitations of Martin Luther King and other the ministers marching across the US against official segregation in the 1950s, the Northern Irish Catholics marches in the 1960s, which led to the armed campaign of the IRA. During the Franco Fascist regime in Spain, Basque activists organized themselves into a nationalist club, while they studied at a Jesuit seminary in northern Spain. This proto-nationalist movement eventually transformed into the armed struggle of ETA. Even the mass murdering Communist dictator, Josef Stalin, began his higher studies in an Orthodox Christian seminary.

The US government had to finance and train hundreds of state murderers from Latin Americans in order to murder their fellow citizens, all in order to combat Liberation Theology from the 1960s to the 1990s. This essay cannot even do justice to the number of historical times that Christianity has successfully turned on its old state supports, and then destroyed those same state and elite collaborators.

The historical lesson for us Anarchists is simple. The religious ideology of the Judeo-Christian Monotheist Cult has been a perfect representation of human absurdity lurking within our evil world.

It has more often supported reaction and mass murder, yet some of the most effective revolutionaries have burst forth from its roots, while such political activists have successfully undermined the legitimacy of the state.

Unlike our Marxist sect and Leftist-reformist mortal enemies, we Anarchists must not forsake nor reject the work of these Christianity inspired revolutionaries. Their intensity of revolutionary work knows no bounds. The Christian in revolt against both the State and the rich Elites often works alone, outside of the official, institutional churches. We don’t have to join their religious confessions, but we can encourage each other through our constant struggles against the economic elites and the criminal state.

Firearms-SafetyCaution dangerous toolshot in the legshot in the foot

The terrible news stories never end. First, I read about a top state spy honcho, while representing a pro-citizen disarmament government, who shot his weapon’s laser sights at foreign visitors. Next, I glanced at some story about an irresponsible gun owner that allowed his gun to blast off as he was testing it in front of people. If he was lucky, then nobody ended up wounded or murdered. Sadly, this has not been the case from previous collected accounts of negligent discharges.

I have also perused news items about guys showing off their guns to their friends, forgetting that they had recently gone out shooting, and then messing around with their weapons while a live round was in the chamber. The stupid guy then murders his friend that was sitting right across from him. So many lives destroyed over some fool showing off his new weapon!

There are other stories about cops, and cop leaders, demonstrating the proper use of weapons, and then having them shoot off live bullets in front of a shocked audience. Sometimes, the round destroyed some inanimate object, while other times the cop gangers shot themselves with permanent consequences. For all of us that handle weapons, we all must repractice basic gun safety.

Guns are tools. But they are very specific tools. Guns are tools specific for extermination, whether at an old TV that only plays static, or against a rabid, four-legged animal ready for a meaty bite, or even against a human, a two-legged ‘animal’ ready to do some serious violence. We must all safely handle these tools of extermination, so that we do not destroy ourselves, our families, or our friends.

The first step for using any gun or any weapon is not shooting it live, or even disassembling it and then the reassembly. The first step before holding any weapon, is learning, memorizing, checking, and then constantly reviewing the basic gun safety rules. The alternative is just one negligent discharge within a few seconds that can horribly alter our human existence. In one fleeing moment we could destroy our lives and the lives of others.

The first safety rule is to treat all guns and weapons as if they had live rounds inside, meaning ‘loaded.’ This basic rule is not paranoia, but a safe way of always pointing the weapon in a direction where it will not hurt any living being or dangerous object, such as a closed gas canister, and at the same time, always checking the gun safety, releasing the magazine, (if there is one), and examining the chamber. Even if the gun has not been used for a long time, the owner has to do the same procedures. He or she has to make sure that the weapon points at an area that will cause the least amount damage, if the gun happens to discharge a round. Next, he or she has to perform the gun safety check: magazine check, (if there is a magazine inserted), and a chamber check to see if it is free of bullets.

Finding a safe area to point a weapon is hard. If you live above or below someone, then you cannot point the weapon at most surfaces, because almost all bullet rounds go through walls, doors, windows, floors and ceilings. Even pointing the gun at a regular old wall is dangerous because you just don’t know who there is on the outside, on the other side of the wall, or just standing around your place. The point of this lesson is that you never want a negligent discharge.

If you live in an urban environment, the sudden, loud ‘bang’ of a weapon firing is enough for a snitch, cowardly neighbor to call on the donut brigade. When the cops show up later at your door, good luck in not allowing the police gang to push you out of the doorway and then search your personal space. Cops always find some evidence for some crime. The police can then say that the gunshot gave them the probable cause. In some anti-gun Amerikan big cities, a civilian negligent discharge is an actual crime. This is one of the reasons some gun people live in out in the rural parts where guns are prevalent. Gunshots tend move in and out with the wild animal noises.

The second rule about pointing the weapon in a safe direction, also implies that we need to see the target and what is behind it. Since we consider all weapons loaded, we also need to handle and store our weapons in such a way that if a negligent discharge of a bullet does go off, the bullet will do the least amount of damage to the target right in front of it. After we check the gun’s chambers, with no magazine, (or an empty magazine), and the safety on, then we should lock the weapon and store it inside some container. We should place the container in such a way as to have the barrel facing a hard surface, and where there is usually no human contact or pressurized structures behind the surface.

We should never point the weapon at our faces or bodies in order to check for obstructions in the barrel. The gun owner has to do the safety check first, and then disassemble the weapon second. After cleaning and reassembly, the gun owner can then inspect for the barrel for obstructions. After reassembly, the gun owner can also check both the safety and trigger functions – not pulling the trigger itself.

This is the third rule. Never put the finger on the trigger unless you are ready to destroy something. The trigger mechanism is the final act for extermination. Once the owner pulls the trigger even slightly, it can never return back. The round will fire and then come the consequences. This is the reason that all guns come with trigger guards. Even the slightest pressure on the trigger can set it off. We should keep the trigger finger on the frame, and only put that finger on the trigger when all other options are not available in a combat situation. We are now ready to commit devastation. This mentality also implies that we are in the right mind.

The fourth rule is extremely important. Never handle a gun or any weapon while partying with friends, while anxious or mentally preoccupied, after imbibing some alcohol, and don’t even make the gun a common conversation piece for bragging rights, or just to talk about your day shooting with someone. It is better to keep quiet about your weapons, then letting your neighbors or acquaintances find out what you possess. When things get nasty in the Empire, that same neighbor or acquaintance may become the snitch narc that will turn you into the police. Talking about your gun to other people often moves into showing off your gun to other people. When drinking alcohol or mentally preoccupied, you will probably not do any safety checks. A fun get together between friends could turn into the most terrible act we could ever do.

In all my many years of handling weapons, hunting trips, military experience and plinking with friends, I have had one negligent discharge. Luckily, I was not hurt, and nor did I really blast anything important. But as they say, one mistake is one too many, and this is especially true with firearms. I learned my lesson because I startled myself and I felt an acute shock that I could commit such a mistake. I swore that I would never do such a negligent act ever again and I returned to the gun safety protocols. I am still a fanatic for firearm safety. That one embarrassing experience solidified the first and only rule with handling any weapons: safety, more safety, and even more safety.

Emperor Ying ZhengHobbes Leviathan StateGreat Wall of ChinaMausoleum of the First Qin Emperor - Teracotta ArmyUS-Mexico Border WallOperation Iraqi Freedom

The fateful year was 246 BCE, in the middle of January, Chinese New Year’s Day. And this day was truly an auspicious event. The calm winds did blow, and a new dynasty, the most powerful and yet, the shortest dynasty in Chinese history, had drunk from the poisoned cup of power. The great Chin Empire had arranged the sacred rituals for its grandiose reign. The infamous Black Emperor held tight to the wrath, once belonging to the worst of winters, and his holy name was, Ying Zheng.

Originally, the Chin rulers had fought as military knights under the great Zhou dynasty. But many centuries later, the Chin had finally received the mandate of Heaven, and like all new regimes and states built on the foundations of violence and legal crime, the emperor had a new capital built, called Xianyang on the western Wei River. Ying Zheng, as war commander and imperial Black Prince, took less than ten years to conquer all of his rival warlords and eventually unite the Middle Kingdom of China, both east and west, and north from the Yellow river to the south on the Yangtze river.

After Emperor Zheng’s sudden death about twelve years later, one of his sons, Zhao Zheng, or following his new name, Qin Shi Huang – the First Great Emperor, continued the Chin dynasty. He would last only a few years in power before his fateful assassination. The great Chin dynasty actually lasted only fifteen years, from 246-210 BCE.

Yet, this dynasty was the first to unite all the Chinas, the first to build on the Great Wall against the barbarians, the first to exterminate all the soldiers that knew the whereabouts of the Black Emperor, and then recreate them in lifelike quality in stone sculpture buried under the imperial sacred Earth. Chin Imperial power had first successfully used the political ideology of Legalism, under the advisers of Han Fei, Li Si, and Shang Yang.

Many philosophers and intellectuals in both antiquity and modern times have tried to formulate a theory, a law, or a truth that would explain to humanity the essence of human history. For some ancient historians, the understanding of history and conquest emerged from correct moral guidance, law systems, and aligning the actions of justice with fate or the Gods. Medieval historians often wrote about the attainment of both group discipline and group feeling, which enabled the triumph of the Spirit.

For others, it was the power of the Idea, the conception of the truth, while great leaders in history had obtained the access to the Eternal Mind, which led their empires and nations to victory. And for a few others, mostly of the Marxist persuasion, history was nothing but the struggle of social classes, where the poorer classes have been in constant war, movement and retreat versus the richer classes. All of these philosophers, intellectuals, and armchair historians were wrong.

The philosopher Nietzsche came the closest to understanding History, when he stated that history was not a subject worthy of study, for it was simply the study about how the strong, or the Masters, abused the weak, or the Slaves. This was true, but history has never been that simple. Humans have been very complex, have often thought too much, and have generally acted and reacted based on mental absurdities. But the cycles of history, and the rise and fall of great powers, empires, nations and states have all developed through the cultivation of the art of violence and the maintenance of such power. True power comes out of the genius, energy and will to do incredible acts of violence, brutality and cruelty.

All powerful state entities know this historical truth, including the sociopathic liars that now run the real United States Government-World Power. Historical entities that have fine tuned their methods of violence to greater legal webs of direction, such as prisons and concentration camps, massive laws codes, greater technological prowess in war, unbelievable controls in information and state secrets, amazing propaganda techniques, sophisticated uses of genocide, shocking acts of mass murder, various layers of legal state crimes, and the utter destruction of multiple enemies, have been the same entities that have triumphed through the attainment of power status on the world stage. Mao Tse Tung, the last known emperor of China, albeit a Communist one, stated that ‘all power comes out of the barrel of a gun.’ He was also partly right.

Violence has not just represented physical extermination, such as war, military divisions, guns, urban destruction, legal murder and state criminality. Violence has also signified institutional levels of brute force, such as laws, codes, work systems, schools, prisons, media propaganda, information gathering, intelligence spying, and surveillance mechanisms. The state apparatuses and empires that have successfully used and perfected all of those different levers of institutional violence have been the same empires that have achieved the most sublime victories on history’s pages for the battle of ideologies.

Think on the first great European empire, the Spanish Empire. At the beginning of the seventeenth-century, this Empire ‘where the sun had never set,’ had just murdered millions of indigenous people in the Caribbean, and yet it constructed a durable colonial regime from the Rio Colorado in New Mexico to the Rio Bio Bio in Chile for three hundred years. The ancient Assyrians also possessed great victories for hundreds of years, and they also held their special methods of torture and death in dealing with recalcitrant nobles that refused to respect them. The Chin Emperors of ancient China understood this truth fully through their ideological supports, called the Legalists.

For example, the Legalists advisers of the Chin ordered the confiscation of all illegal weapons. They also counseled the emperor on the nature of warfare, both internal and external. The emperor had to win the battle at all costs. The Chin also abolished hereditary noble privileges and they willfully executed scheming court eunuchs, massacred suspect villages and buried alive dishonest Confucian intellectuals. The Chin introduced forced labor conscription in order to build royal palaces, roads for war chariots, extensive canals, and gigantic walls that stretched thousands of miles in order to keep out the barbarians. They expelled non-Chinese foreigners and forcibly resettled minority cultures. The emperor did not just lounge in his palace, but he toured his empire on a war chariot accompanied by royal advisers and noble knights.

The Chin emperor forced the nobles into continual wars, so as to keep them occupied from parasitism. The Chin also employed the first court bureaucrats and did allow for some internal criticism. The emperors mandated a large family policy, larger agricultural tribute taxes, and the control of marriage partners, so that the poor would not marry the wealthy. The Great Emperor also demanded the burning of historical records with the final unification of Chinese legal and writing systems. According to the Legalists, the emperor kept a neutral stance on all policy, but his will reigned supreme handing out both punishments and favors, while he always favored the duress of the Law against favoritism and privileges.

After the overthrow of the Chin, another dynasty emerged to rule China. They had the name of the Han Dynasty, and unlike the Chin, they would rule for another 400 years. The Han emperors condemned the old Legalist methods of the Chin, but they also used similar violent methods in maintaining control. Sometimes the officials would cancel taxes, and other times they raised them. Sometimes the officials increased the number of laws, and other times they did not enforce them. The Han Chinese attacked Manchuria, Annam, (northern Vietnam), Mongolia and Korea, in order to expand their empire. The Han used Confucian scholars over Legalists, yet for the posterity of history, they used the same methods of violence and legal crime in order to keep up their power.

The historical lesson is simple. All states that want to advance in power and grasp their historical glory must increase their deeds of violence, brutality, criminality and cruelty. Violence does get the results, because the State, as historical entity, bathes in its own power to commit admissible violence and legal crime. There is no way to have a state without acts of torture, rape, imprisonment and murder. This truth goes for all states: democratic or parliamentary, republican or dictatorial, monarchic or oligarchic, theocracies or socialist juntas. Whether the methods are coup d’états or elections, resignations or palace revolts, the activities of the state speak only to unrestrained violence. Human culture changes, but the state has never changed – nor will it ever.

Amerikan gulag

For some kids with white skin privilege, and holding the class privileges, or the money, to enjoy it, the ‘Sixties’ in the States was a time for free experimentation and more freedom. This was especially true for those lucky ones that lived in big American coastal cities, like Boston, NYC, Los Angeles and San Francisco. And for artist-musicians, the times had definitely changed, with a tidal wave of clear blue paradise that washed over the music-cultural scenes, from street concerts, cafe jams to three-day music festivals.

For the ‘others,’ and especially Black and Latino working class kids, the times were not that different. Change did not really happen, and in fact, the fascism got worse. Now, the US government emerged even stronger, and even more sophisticated in its manipulations and attacks. The monsters would hand out some economic aid to certain sectors in the racialized substratum, while other unfortunates stuck in the bars of poverty received the donut cop’s stick and the prison cell for longer stints than mass killers. This is exactly what happened to an African-American street hustler kid, named George Jackson.

As a teenager, he entered the street hustling world as a petty thief, and finally, for hitting a gas station at the age of 18, the state judicial system handed him a life imprisonment sentence. Jackson resigned himself to this terrible fate, or actually, his living death within the confines of the prison walls. Yet, he used his prison time prudently through becoming a voracious reader. Before prison, he was barely literate, yet within a few years, he transformed himself into an encyclopedia of radical history, conflict sociology, and Marxist philosophy. Jackson now walked the same path as the revolutionary Malcolm X.

The American Prison-Gulag destroys most inmates, yet George Jackson transcended it. Even when the prison authorities tried to silence him by throwing him in solitary confinement, or ‘the hole,’ he still read and wrote insatiably. He was able to have two books published from his erudite letters to supporters, ‘Soledad Brother’ and ‘Blood in my Eye.’

George Jackson was no fool either. He knew that the California state prison authorities were going to assassinate him. He became a field marshal for the Black Panther Party and began to successfully organize Black, White and Latino inmates in prison. The Hole, guard attacks, and isolation periods did not seem to work, so they transferred him to another prison. Even after the prison transfer, he still kept busy at his revolutionary work inside of the gulag inferno.

In 1971, the prison authorities finally set him up, and he went down to his last fight – by killing, two prison bum guards before sacrificing his own life as a revolutionary martyr. Only two years later, across the continent, Black, White and Latino prisoners united to successfully take the Attica Prison in New York. The governor of New York at the time was one of the Rockefeller thugs. He sent in the State Police for the murder rap, and he made sure that the prison revolt ringleaders died in the process.

The Rockefellers were no fools either, and they had lots of practice in the art of murder. Think on and look up the Ludlow Massacre of 1914. They were just always smart enough, and rich enough, to have other criminals do the murders for them. George Jackson died a revolutionary martyr, but he was not the only one, nor was he one of the few exceptions that have suffered at the claws of Amerikan injustice.

Millions of others have died terrible deaths, and still die terrible deaths, through the evil grasps of the Amerikan prison system. It is now the largest in the world, in both the actual number of prisoners-parolees, almost seven million, and in the percentage of prisoners to the general population, now two percent of the general population. This same nefarious system also has the most severe punishments and prison sentences in the world. The entire Amerikan system of legalism, legal law miasma, state prosecutor misconduct, and prison construction, has transformed the American landscape into a dangerous Prison Sociopath.

Thousands of prisoners still rot in the system’s dungeons due to crimes committed during the same 1960s of George Jackson’s time! No other gulag system in the world contains such prisoners from over forty years ago. Almost all of the prisoners that still endure the loss of their lives from the sixties, seventies and eighties, remain in lockup due to their political crimes against the system, such as the donut cops and the bogus authorities. Their crimes were simply fighting against the Amerikan Empire.

They are political prisoners, but the United States government represents the only government in the world that does not recognize such political prisoners. Even the British Empire eventually recognized the political status of IRA prisoners after the Hunger Strikes. Only, serial killers like Charles Manson still reside within the prison walls for the same amount of time. Yet, murderers, rapists, robbers and career criminals have had less time served than our ‘political prisoners,’ or as the US state apparatus murderers categorically state, ‘convicted terrorists.’

A Cuban right-wing terrorist that blew up an airplane walks around Miami as a freeman, while a killer of one of the Kennedys has his parole repeatedly denied after over forty years of time served. Politicians annually add more laws on the books to ensnare more and more US citizens in the felon and prison web. Yet, the elites that do mass robbery through cooking the banks’ books, pushing flim-flam mortgages on naive buyers, or robbing account holders through numerous fees, or even the generals that have committed murder and genocide through mass warfare, have either received light fines, severance salaries, or federal government payouts. This same legal system has a complete two-tiered judicial system, one for the political-economic-military elites and another one for the rest of us. The state criminals refuse to acknowledge such as travesty.

This unacknowledged two-tiered justice system is the reason why the laws are so convoluted and increase daily within the skank legislative halls and closed judicial chambers. The political-economic-military elites can pay good lawyers to skip around the legal miasma, while the rest of us have to endure the legal fiat of the appointed judge and the double entendre of the district or state attorney. This is the great Amerikan legal fraud.

The district or state attorney receives the reports from the police or state agencies against the defendant. Then, the DA simply adds a greater list of charges to the indictment, since the DA has the sole legal rights to press charges. The politically ambitious state attorney then throws ‘the book’ or the long list of charges against the defendant’s attorney. The defense attorney has no other choice then to advise the defendant to plead guilty to the lesser charges. This infernal method has the innocuous name of ‘plea bargaining.’ Now we know the true reason why the Amerikan prison gulag keeps growing exponentially.

With the annual increase of felony loads against the citizenry, and for the most inoffensive of ‘crimes,’ will all of the forced plea-bargaining from the state, the defendant has no chance in the ‘court of law.’ In most American large cities, public defenders must endure heavy backlogs of cases. The malefactors that run this legal system have concocted a mastery of evil. The politically ambitious prosecutors will convict the innocent in order to prove their toughness on crime; meanwhile, they will protect the donut cops from their thefts, tortures and murders. The police forces do have a reputation to uphold.

Driving on America’s highways and byways, one sees the growth of the prison industry, both state and private ones. Prisons have even become one of the most lucrative industries for many states. The Amerikan Empire, or the United States, has become the greatest jailer and legislator of unjust laws in world history. The Amerikan prison-gulag has thus transformed itself through creating its own political economy. The Amerikan prison-industrial complex regularly employs forced inmate labor at slave wages, gouges indigent prisoners on telephone calls, and even fines prisoners for their own jail time! The Prison Sociopath is alive and eating. Let this essay be a warning to those that live inside of this Imperial Beast.
