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.

A cold wind was howling through the medieval streets of Rome during middle December. The days were real short. Darkness even shadowed the moon. This particular day was in the middle of the month, and the year was 1485. Christmas had its parties coming up, but the Pope Caesar had other nefarious plans tucked into his fat stomach. The sinister name of intolerance and hypocrisy was none other than Pope Innocent VIII, (the Eighth).

On this nefarious date he issued a strange papal bull against witchcraft and sorcery that seemed to infect the women of Europe, and especially the First Reich of Germany, bizarrely called, the Holy Roman Empire. This Empire was neither holy nor Roman.

Within this peculiar papal condemnation, he also cited the use of a demonic herb, called cannabis, often found, or imagined, in satanic religious rites. His informant-experts for these underground, conspiratorial satanic covens represented two German Dominican monks, Jakob Spengler and Heinrich Kramer. They would soon publish a nasty book, called ‘The Hammer of the Witches,’ which would help in the murder of close to 200,000 ‘witches,’ mostly marginalized women, during the next 250 years in Europe and in America.

Unfortunately for the plant ‘cannabis sativa,’ this strange and mystical herb from deep Asia, received the taint of evil with the papal stamp of approval. Yet, this same Pope Innocent the Eighth enjoyed some other mortal sins during his reign. He was obese and lived a life of extreme luxury inside the papal palace. He fathered two illegitimate children and had them married off into one of the strongest Families in Renaissance Italy, the Medici. He dipped some of the papal finances into the new Portuguese African Slave Trade. Meanwhile, he tried to revive the Papal Crusades of another Pope Innocent, in order to exterminate the Muslim Turks, the Protestant Waldensians in Northern Italy, and the Hussites in the Czech lands. All cannabis haters in history have shared three evil characteristics: intolerance, gross hypocrisy and state murder.

What is it about cannabis sativa that attracts such hatred and venom? The answer lies in its historical origins: the mystical rites for Lord Shiva and the Islamic Assassins in the medieval period. Cannabis still has these mystical, ‘orientalist’ associations to this actual day. Whether the foreign visitor enters the medinas of Morocco or the festivals dedicated to Shiva in India and Nepal, the scent of the cannabis herb inundates the consciousness.

From its evil oriental connections until its later appearances in the United States, cannabis would connect to a more infamous notoriety. African-American artists smoked the herb while they played their demonic, African sensualized beats, called jazz. Attractive white women even took off their shoes in the smoky clubs, and they danced with the demons. Mestizo, mixed race, Mexican fruit pickers and outlaws also smoked the leaf, called ‘mota,’ during their raucous partying. The dangerous, criminal classes, of course, used the oriental poison. The Amerikan Imperial thugs had taken notice. The historical hatred against cannabis has simply been another combined form of intolerance and murder.

Cannabis is actually a marvelous and natural soft drug. It relaxes and calms the mental nerves, and helps with bouts of nausea and gastrointestinal pains. Some doctors state that cannabis has other helpful healing properties. Cannabis can spark interior mental activity or engaging conversation. It stimulates the human appetites, both culinary and sexual. The drug goes perfectly with foods, entertainment, the arts and it especially compliments other natural drugs found on the Earth, such as alcohol, coffee and tea.

The only negatives to the drug are certain habitual users of it. It seems to have the similar effects of antidepressants on them, which produce lethargy, ego self-obsessions, or minor neuroses. But these are some excessive users. I have also personally met aggressive and successful attorneys that were avid smokers of the weed.

I return to cannabis’ ancient history and its orientalist associations. Lord Shiva, the God of both Creation and Destruction, the Cosmic Dance and the Holy Lingam, (phallic power), the revealer of mystical Tantra, patron of cows, yoga and the third sex, married to the goddess, Parvati, father to the god, Ganesh – also partook of the mystical drink, called ‘soma.’ Legend has it that the mystical drink was none other than ‘bhang,’ a milky concoction containing cannabis.

Shiva’s wandering followers called ‘sadhus,’ still partake of the magical perfumed medicine. During my travels around the world, I have seen these holy men, and some thieving-fakers claiming to exist as sadhus, smoking cannabis out of funnel type ceramic pipes called ‘chillum.’ Watching those holy men in action with their long dread locks, scruffy beards, blue and white-painted dyes, bodies smeared with cow dung, rope necklaces and bracelets, and dirty loin cloths, added to the whole Indian-Asian mystical effect.

On a more common level, during the Hindu festival of Holi, which happens around springtime, young Indians and Nepalese drink the marvelous liquid ‘bhang’ shakes, or ‘lassies,’ and later, hit the public streets throwing brightly colored dyes on the surrounding partiers and walkers. They hit me too – which added to the great fun during that day. Shiva’s gift was a truly a wonderful act.

Islam conquered the northern regions of the Indian subcontinent in the middle of the eleventh century. The cannabis magic of Shiva would also influence the Sufi Muslim mystics that lived in those regions. Even the great Sufi poet and mystic, Rumi, praised the herb and the wine. Cannabis entered the Islamic world: it stayed and it prospered. Still today in the Islamic world from North Africa to Afghanistan, the traveler can spot old men sitting in cafes, wearing their ‘chalaba’ long outfits with hoods. They smoke the green and brown ‘kif’ in their long pipes, while they sip on herbal mint tea, Turkish coffee and chew on honey snacks. Religious controversies have continued between the Sunni, Shia and Sufi branches of Islam – but smoking the flowering buds united them all.

One of the truths of human history has been its reign of absurdity. Cannabis had attached itself to one of the Shia sects of medieval Islam – ‘the Assassins.’ The Assassins were part of the Ismaili sect or the ‘Seveners.’ They also drank the luscious wine and smoked the enchanting herb.

The medieval Japanese Shogunates had their ‘ninjas’; while Medieval Islamic World Culture had their assassins. The assassins lived outside of society. Those disciplined holy warriors squatted in abandoned, foreboding military castles in northern Syria, Iraq and Iran. Their founder, Hassan i Sabbah, or ‘The Old Man of the Mountain,’ organized this Shia sect military order into a hierarchical brotherhood. Inside the castle, the warriors studied religious and philosophical texts, scientific works, learned various languages, and most importantly, the arts of killing. Their three preferred methods moved towards the silent variety: the dagger, the poison and strangulation.

Their victims were always political leaders within the Islamic world. If the Islamic political hack instituted unjust acts, mandated cruel laws, oppressed the poor, allowed poverty to accumulate, or stole lots of money from the just – then the Assassins went on the attack.

The Assassins first left a note pinned with a small dagger within the confines of the caliph or sultan’s palace. If that didn’t work, then the spiritual leader picked an Assassin to fulfill the last deed – a violent death. The Assassins always reached their victims, and after killing the state bum, they would often let frightened onlookers see the terminating work. Many of the assassins never returned from their ultimate missions.

Only one Islamic political-military ruler survived them – Saladin the Great. He survived three attempts on his life. They aroused fear in both the Islamic potentates and the European royal Crusaders. One of the Crusader kings even used the Assassins as allies against his Islamic rivals. Their enemies called them, ‘hashasheen’ in Arabic, or the Troublemakers.

From this Arabic word, the European Crusaders, and especially the Venetian merchant, Marco Polo, tied some connections between the sinister Oriental herbal paste, ‘hashish,’ with Assassin lore. According to the ignorant Euro-experts, hash was the powerful ingredient that transformed the Assassins into fanatical killers. This corrupted link also transformed European languages on the continent.

Most European languages have a separate word for killing and for murder: ‘matar,’ in Spanish, ‘tuer,’ in French, and ‘uccidire,’ in Italian. But these three languages share the same original word for murder, ‘asesinar, assassiner, assassinare.’ This outrageous relation between cannabis and irrational violence even stayed well into the 1930s USA with crap movies such as ‘Reefer Madness.’

This marvelous soft drug of cannabis has had its absurd orientalist associations. The real issue of cannabis was not its properties, but the European hatred for ‘the other,’ which still fuels the sociopathology of the Amerikan Empire. The murderous and hateful world empire still hunts for its victims through its continuous War against Cannabis, and all other ‘illegal drugs.’ The CIA can deal whatever it wants, yet the same US government prefers smokers to rot inside its hundreds of overpopulated prisons. In spite of all of this hate, Lord Shiva’s precious gift still wafts its distinctive breeze throughout all the lands of the Earth.

Reenactors Revolutionary WarReenactors Civil WarNapoleon_Bonaparte_portrait_1796The Louvre museumAmerian Reality TV feverobese donut copAmerican fast food cultureAmerican urban_sprawl

In the contemporary USA there is a serious subculture that mixes together gun owners, actors and historians. They call themselves the reenactors. These historical period actors represent the aficionados of old military costumes, weapons, and martial movements. They regularly follow the sacred dates of battle memorials. Other tasks include interpreting for museum exhibitions and extras for historical episodes on cable TV. They do reenactments at historical sites, while replaying personal battle accounts. They truly do live the history and experience the combat flutters – even without the dead and mangled human bodies lying around them.

Across this United States, there are thousands of local historical societies doing their parts for regional memory. There also thousands of mini-museums, which feature glass cases of local artifacts and human stories. There also exist live nostalgia sites, and especially in the West and in the South, featuring dudes and gals dressed up in historical costumes. Along the ‘done up’ stage, tourists can see the period furniture, walk in the local stores, and visit the bars and restaurants. They can also watch the dressed-up people ‘doing their stuff the old way.’ We should not forget the medieval lore of Renaissance Festivals too. No other nation on Earth has so many museums – and museums for every imaginable taste inside of our tiny Earth universe.

Museums were actually a new invention to the human condition. Museums were not part of the large urban dynamic until the late 1700s, eighteenth-century. People hadn’t the need for museums during most of human history. Life, art, conflict, love and death were all around them. They just didn’t need a special space in order to experience their lives. The actuality of living worked fine – filled with surprises, sublime joy and tragedies.

The official founder of museums was none other than the ego-maniac dictator of the French Empire, (1798-1815), Napoleon Bonaparte. Like a good state thug, he just stole the grand art works of Italy, especially some of the more famous paintings, after his army had invaded the country. His army transported them to Paris, and then placed most of them inside an old Royal Palace in Paris, called the Louvre. Now every major and minor city across the world – has its very own, sacred ‘museum’ space. Bad habits are certainly addictive. But the irony of ironies, art mausoleums of the dead, commonly called, ‘museums,’ have become synonymous with modern, high culture.

Returning to the American reenactors, they generally prefer particular reenactments. Their favorites are two wars in US history: the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. How many reenactments does one see representing the War of 1812 or the Mexican War? There is a definite reason for the reenactors’ preferences.

They prefer these two wars because they exemplified the good side to American culture: the right to complete and total personal freedom, and the cultural action of honor to defend such rights. The reenactors don’t just act and play for the sake of historical posterity; they also reenact because contemporary Amerikan culture represents the direct opposite of true freedom – and the fight for one’s honor to defend it. Only small sections of the American South still give obeisance to the cultural value of honor.

American culture has always had a terrible link to cruelty, but over a hundred years ago, true liberty and the defense of honor made the American a respected world citizen, violently birthed out of a newly created republic. Americans shared these values with most of the nations of the world. Nowadays unfortunately, only the day-to-day cruelty remains.

Global monopoly capitalism, state-public-coerced schooling, corporate media-advertising-Hollywood garbage, the prison-gulag, ‘legal’ institutional powers, the ultimate police-gang state, and the military-spy-industrial-war complex have all done their insidious parts in transforming American society into a low and diseased culture. Due to this terribly diseased state of Amerikan Imperial culture, the Empire is rotting from the inside. The terrible news is that the sociopaths that hold and manage political power in the States – also know this.

Actual American culture features the horrible diseases of immaturity, boredom, indiscretion and ignorance, mostly due to Amerikan public schooling and the corporate media TV-Hollywood junta. Watching the momentous crap on American cable television, from reality TV shows, to making money shows, to TV shopping channels, can convince even the most patriotic observer on the actual cultural rot.

The other current diseases in the culture represent gluttony, fear-distrust, frustration, and explosive anger: all of which come from extreme monopoly capitalism. Mention leads to the obesity epidemic, the fast food nightmare found in every town and city in the States, the overuse of psychotropic medications that lead to mass shootings, and the street hustling and petty crime that plague most of America’s cities.

The most life threatening disease found inside the culture is cowardice. This mortal killer comes from decades of succumbing to the authoritarian police, militarized surveillance state.

The word ‘culture’ originally comes from the word, agriculture. Just like people use the earth to create foods, cooking and the arts of the table, culture owes its first connections to the holy earth. The most durable cultures have always been the societies that have used the earth for their daily benefits, and yet they have also respected the earth and taken care of it. They understood the balance between use and abuse. Their religious practices always referred back to the earth. We can think on the Native nations in the Americas before the arrival of the European invaders.

Yet, culture can also exist outside of any connection to the earth due to the human ability to mentally create, through both imaginative fantasy and the adoption of complex language structures and vocabularies. With the rise of monotheistic religions on the world stage, such as Christianity and Islam, human cultures created new arts, sciences, idioms and civil societies. These cultural changes help explain Modern Europe’s obsessions with its modern fighting words, such as language, class, people, race and nation. As long as there exists the concept of ‘Europe,’ these fighting terms will not go away any time soon.

I remember when I lived in Europe, a few Europeans had stated to me that America had no culture. Compared to their thousands of years of conflict and history, American culture did not come close to the high levels of Europe. However, every subgroup, region, city, society, club and clique has a culture, even if it is a superficial or weak one. The difference in cultures relate to the various cultural levels, whether high or low. There do exist hierarchies of cultures. And cultures, like the earth and people, can get infections diseases – and even epidemics. This is the current, unfortunate state of the Amerikan Imperial culture.

A very good way to measure the general culture level, within a particular place or region, regards local festivals and celebrations.

One summer, I attended an annual festival in a small, western American town. The weather was beautiful and I was looking forward to feeling the magic of the small town west. What I received instead was lots of boredom, fear of controls and ignorance about the actual history of the region. I didn’t learn anything new; although, there were lots of vendors trying to get me to spend a lot of money.

I heard there was a night concert downtown, so I walked around the downtown area, and found out there was no concert at all. Apparently, the town politicians mandated no loud music after sundown in the fear of attracting people drinking alcohol and having fun. The next day, I walked around the downtown area again, and all I saw were stands, either selling local junk trinkets or genetically modified laced greasy, fast food. I also spotted the traveling carnival rides. Almost all the locals walking around were either fat or obese.

The rides were mostly nausea producing machines, meaning they moved round and round and round, while the rest of the carnival structures featured ‘carnival games,’ or really scam productions to steal people’s money, like throwing a heavy ball into a small, tilted basket, all in order to receive cheap and bogus prizes. Even if the person wanted to just walk around the carnival, they still had to pay up front for just entering the festival zone. On one side street off the Main drag, I observed that there were more police walking around than actual locals. I was so scared of the police presence that I left the area.

I returned again, the next day, to experience the town’s premier music concert. I walked to the park off the main drag. As I stepped toward the park’s entrance, a security staff guy then approached me and told me that I had to pay a good amount of money in order to enter. He also said that I could only buy their overpriced alcohol from the inside vendors, and that they had to search both my body and personal bag for pre-entry. If I got too drunk, then the police would have to arrest me.

I was so shocked about ‘the rules’ that I waked away. I also noticed a heavy local police presence around the park entrance. As I looked over from the outside, the band arrived on stage, and when they started playing, the music was absolutely horrible. The band played Country music cover songs, with a background player for other instruments, such as piano, banjo or accordion, and the musicians used music stands, so they could sing the lyrics. I also noticed that the crowd was sparse and almost nobody danced, except for a few older couples. This so-called festival had a theme related to the town’s history, and yet, I learned nothing from this event. The festival was a bust – and so was the town.

This town was dying like so many other towns out in the American west, and it failed to reinvent itself in order to bring in more tourist dollars. That terrible festival represented the same terrible level of general culture found in the town.

No matter what the local politicians cook up in their deceitful minds, if the local town possesses a low culture, then the place is on the path of dying badly. During that particular festival, I experienced more fear, boredom, disgust and ignorance than anything else. I had really experienced some of America’s mortal cultural diseases.

This is the reason culture is so important to people around the world. Culture represents the totality of our body expressions, values, productions, actions, words and contradictions. Culture, like the planets around the suns, and the moons around the planets, revolves around our difficult lives. We all possess, live and create culture. And culture always goes through movement and changes, just like the universe. Finally, culture also has ties to conflict and resistance.

For example, during an annual religious festival, in the year 1580, in the town of Romans, France, the local people moved into revolt mode. The party started off with some hard-drinking and soon transformed into a liberating revolution!

In contemporary Amerika, some urban hipsters, intolerant leftists, rich liberals and other pathetic snobs like to focus their disgust on to the Revolutionary War and Civil War reenactors. Yet, it is truly their hypocritical, cowardly and low cultural lives that make most people gasp. As long as people breathe, they will create culture. The ones that move culture into resistance will create the highest and most powerful one. Meanwhile in the Amerikan Empire, the sociopaths holding power watch in fear.

As we Anarchists lose tolerance for the repetitive boredom, ignorance, and media fear campaigns vomiting out of the crap television programs, corporate radio broadcasts, and Hollywood movies – we can create alternatives spaces using similar visual mediums. As we perceive the endless public signs and billboards that advertise useless crap, threaten us, attack and harass our daily lives, we can avoid their public spaces and take alternative routes, poster or paint over them, or even take the small signs down. If a state or corporate-funded cultural space wants to rob us so they can make a cheap profit, then we can set up an another space open to marginalized forms of artistic expression – whether on a deserted sidewalk, in a basement or in a public park. The culture of resistance always breathes new life into the general revolution – and offers a marvelous and new sense of freedom.

We Anarchists have made the first steps in resistance and freedom just through our rejection of such a corrupt system. We understand the truth on both life and death, and we see through the sociopaths’ methods of social control and their criminality.

Movement and deep activity are what we are after.
