 Capitalism works for allFilipino-homeless-kidsSaigoncasino-capitalismEnjoy CapitalismCocoa-Child-Laborerchina-wage slave

We are all living under an excrescence of legal murder and sustained institutional violence. What did we do to deserve such a horrid fate of hate and destruction? Why did the political-economic elites choose us for extermination?

Only Real and Actual History can answer such doubts. The false and bad history narratives beam and scream their constant bile on the TV and Hollywood cinema screens. At least we still have the Internet where we can read about the truth and then write something about it.

With all of the ongoing, terrible economic news, and an even more horrible political-economic forecast, there are still those soul breaking stories that emerge from the media refuse.

I will never forget one recent story about a builder who always had good-paying, stable work for most of his life – but then suddenly, he was out of work. He drove and roamed around the city in his pickup truck looking for some stable employment, or some decent paying job for his skills set. And unlike myself, a useless PhD bum in the humanities, he did have real skill sets in construction, and he also possessed a long work history of builder experience.

He eventually found some temporary jobs as a regular construction laborer, but his work itinerary was so fleeting that he had a hard time surviving in his bank owned house and dealer owned truck. It was hard to keep one’s head above water through all of the endless billings and the scams of modern living.

With a substantially lowered wage and a spotty work schedule, he just could not survive paying all those mortgage and truck financing dues, utility rates, rising food costs, pay stub withholding taxes, annual city, state and federal taxes, state sales taxes, vehicle maintenance costs, and finally, the forced, gouging insurance rates from Obamacare and the state Division of Motor Vehicles. There were other open and hidden costs that I probably forgot to mention. Almost all of his surplus money vacuumed into endless payments, indirect taxation, fees, added-on rates and hidden fines.

One day finally, the poor and broken man of previous social respectability took his last honorable decision. He would not join the lumpen class poor and accept government or personal handouts. He could never lower his dignity to beg, borrow and steal. Desperate indigents often have to debase themselves for some survival money after demeaning bouts of prison or homelessness.

He would just kill himself, and go for the stoical death with dignity. He entered his truck one last time, turned on some tunes, and kept the truck running – he was just inside the garage the whole time. He let the diesel and carbon monoxide finish his last personal work. He was in his mid-forties and he left a wife and a kid.

What could drive such a decent, hard working man to do such a thing?

The fault mainly lies with those cheap and dishonest ‘landscaping-construction’ business owners who regularly employ illegal aliens or young kids still in high school, so they can pay substandard wages and keep the payroll off the legal accounting books. Those bad owners also allow substandard construction work while bilking the customers for ‘extra hours and materials’ on the job. But there are other culprits that this essay must name.

That honest man refused to live as criminal or an ex-con where he could have received some free money from a local, ‘urban progressive’ government – and possibly a foreign vacation too – all for the ‘promise of not robbing and killing anymore.”

He was also born a male. If he was a poor woman, he could have pumped out three different kids from different fathers, and so become permanently hitched to the government payroll sugar daddy. In the Amerikan imperial nightmare, there are benefits for others and nothing for the unemployed male.

He was too old. Ageism triumphs in the job hire jungle of capitalism. This monstrosity of corruption prefers the young and immature because they are easier to abuse and intimidate – like any good slaves. Yet is it not an outrage that every job offer fraud always demands ‘experience’?

He obviously did not know anyone, or have any ‘good contacts,’ or even some inside ‘family members,’ possessing those cushion, do-nothing, well-paying government-parasite jobs within city-county-state-federal bureaucracies. The less work one does, the higher up on the wage scale.

Or was it just another downturn in the economy usually instigated through those evil central banking elites, and the poor man felt depressed about the scary future on the horizon. Most Americans hate the poor – including the poor themselves.

He was screwed, like millions of other hard working American families across the continent – and across every land on Earth. Like many Americans, he blamed himself for his failure to secure some stable employment with decent pay. What crooked system could transform a hardworking man of experience into another economic loser statistic?

The correct historical answer is our current capitalist system, global monopoly capitalism.

The history of capitalism has exposed a criminal political-economy of false justice and even more dubious political-legal systems. Yet like most structured political-economies, this twisted ball of corrupt vines and dishonest strings slowly strangles its victims into an even deadlier code of violence. Capitalism, unlike Feudalism, Paternalism, or any other historical economic set up, has been winning the war of extermination against family solidarity and sustainable communities.

Our current unlivable system of Global Monopoly Capitalism annihilates any attempts to form a stable family and maintain a thriving self-sustaining community. Many of the lower classes try, and a few succeed in preserving the family unit, but they are fighting a losing battle with history – and capitalism will destroy them too eventually.

Capitalism rots the insides of all the nations upon this Earth, and so there is no escape. Ultimately, the history of capitalism has exposed a relentless political-economic system, which has successfully exterminated all and every auto-sufficient small community on our Globe.

Aboriginals in Australia, Pacific Islander societies, Native communities in the Americas, auto-preserving farming communities in Asia, and cattle raising-agricultural communities in Africa – all of them have had their bittersweet lives ended through the invasions, oppression, and infiltration of global capitalism. Capitalism utilized all of the deadly arts of European imperial tactics: Imperialist Violence, Mission Christianity, and Settler Colonialism to fulfill and accomplish all of its heinous, subversive work. Capitalism annihilated those true anarchist communities, (those with no legal state craft), because they lived on auto-sufficiency. They had too much honor and dignity to sell themselves as wage slave commodities on the ‘labor markets.’

Capitalism’s rancid breath survives on ever greater market opportunities across-inside-above the entire Earth, and at the same time, it needs an ever greater reserve army of labor to herd into their ‘work to live in order to die’ traps. Capitalism and the State always work together for their inside jobs – and this scenario also includes the despicable Socialist regimes. This sinister tag team is still murdering and purifying the courageous holdouts to this very day. Think for example on the traditional cultures of Afghanistan, East Africa and Yemen.

Capitalism murders solidarity through removing the family from any land or any household productions that can sustain some auto-sufficiency. It then forces the family to move from its generational roots to the brutal urban wasteland of suburban slums, also filled with the countless uprooted and unknowns. This noxious system then enlists each family member individually for precarious employment. Instead of a family unit, each member transforms into a wage slave employee who must then daily travel, back and forth, to the foreign work site, spending most of his working and traveling day and night, with all the other peon wage slaves.

Within each family, some family member must make the ultimate sacrifice to travel far and wide, and then live a great amount of distance from the unit in order to earn more survival money. The family soon loses its old identity as a small community of solidarity, and now each member is rated according to his or her earning potential. When some family member dies and leaves an inheritance will, then the personal animosities truly burst out into the open.

Once the family loses its roots, the greater communities lose their power. Towns often become dead villages of old people, women with babies, and the indigent poor who must survive on both parish and county services. The rest of population has to constantly change addresses and find another urban squalor settlement for ‘work opportunities.’ As the urban dynamic grows out of proportion, with more and more desperate wage slaves looking for less and less available jobs, life turns mean, nasty, brutish and dispiriting. The urban vices of the poor proliferate, such as petty criminality, drug-alcohol addiction, abandonment, neglect and brutal violence.

As both institutional and street crime increases, each job seeker feels alienated from the other competitors. The peons fight each other for the crap wages and the discarded scraps of the rich, while the owners continually blame the poor and working classes for their own culture of ‘social degeneracy.’ Meanwhile, the state in the pay of the owner elites, sends the ‘forces of order,’ usually the police forces, to intimidate the economic throw away populations. This debasing cycle continues its death-dealing, downward spirals, like an overflowing sewer drain during a flood.

Friedrich Engels wrote about such conditions in his book, The Condition of the Working Class in England, (1845). His books is a testimony to the brutal alienation, resigned poverty, and social misery of everyday life for England’s working classes.

In densely populated slums all across northern England, neighbors could barely interact with each other because entire families, parts of families, fathers, sons and daughters, had to constantly move about, work at odd hours and times, and even travel to other parts of the British Empire – in order to eat and ‘make a living.’ Life was precarious in those times, and the factory owners fired workers for the flimsiest of excuses.

For over a century, thousands of young men without work had ‘to go to sea,’ in order to avoid forced slavery and an early death in the workhouses, or even ending one’s life press ganged by the captain’s thugs into the ‘naval service.’ The Royal Marines made sure that no press ganged victims escaped.

For most of the previous century, stealing bread for hunger could get one hanging like an old pig corpse at the wooden catafalque. The British Empire in its masterful hate forced the forsaken poor into ’emigration schemes’ towards the ‘convict colonies,’ where they often had to work to death as ‘indentured laborers.’ The old colonial plantation lists of infamy included, Virginia, Barbados, Carolina, Jamaica, Georgia and ultimately, Australia.

From the late Seventeenth-Century, or the 1600s on, the English working class had five doleful identity changing life choices ahead. The first choice was to just drink gin liquor, starve slowly to death due to malnutrition, and die on the side of a slum road. The second one was entering the workhouse, the prison gang, the ship galley crew, or if lucky, the lord’s domestic service – and eventually die over there, where one might never see his or her family again.

If the worker had a little saved capital, then a personal emigration scheme would possibly function in another part of Europe, or somewhere else on the globe for any decent paying job. Another passable option was military service, where the recruit became a peon soldier ready to murder his fellow working class agitators, rebellious African slaves, or any other colonized victim that could not fight back – while receiving physical punishments, rotten food and bad pay. The final option was to go pirating, plundering and highwayman work, or in our contemporary lingo, become a career criminal. And why not? The aristocratic parasite class lived an easy life of no work, no struggle, and there were always separate laws for their legal criminality.

After long centuries of grinding, non-stop Capitalist production with its miserable living conditions, this merciless political economy has continually pushed millions of honorable men and women to their bad deaths – just like our unfortunate American builder who had to gas himself in his bank owned garage, so he could maintain his honor.

In the late nineteenth-century, the 1800s, the trade union took the social-political initiative in fighting back against the onslaught of Capitalism’s institutional violence. From this worker led movement, and the brutal repression that followed, working class political parties emerged throughout Europe who defended their political interests. The social democracy system birthed on that continent.

But now, all of those same ‘leaders’ have sold out to the Enemy. Union and political party bosses make similar salaries, with decent social benefits, as the corporate elites – they are supposedly fighting against.

Capitalism has successfully ripped us from our roots and origins. At the present moment, our families take their identities from their ‘jobs.’ We must all beg and plead to other family members who have some extra capital in order to survive physically on this cruel Earth. The modern family is strictly an economic unit of consumption. Its sordid truth comes out in the will and testament divvying after Death.

How many of us truly know our neighbors – or even care to know our neighbors? Our contemporary ‘communities’ are often imagined ones wedded to work schemes, advertising-publicity media lies, ideological sects, hobby clubs, gang units, or just some other ‘mystical chords of union.’ With defeated minds, we excrete our dreams inside the colonized caverns of the already dead.

capitalism modern cityabsolut-capitalismcapitalism breadCAPITALISM predatorsOpportunity for allEnjoy Capitalism

We all possess the marks of our future corpses.

We are all truly homeless, for our final home is in realm of extinction. We humans now survive inside the hells of our previous creations. One of our current hells possesses the name of Capitalism, and it respects no one – except those of the fortunate few who possess grand quantities of capital, or money. And ultimately, we all must fend and forage for our basic survival. All alone we decay, every human for him or herself, as we all will die – alone.

The author of this blog has traveled to many nations and regions across the globe, and in the end, he cannot do another voyage. Capitalism was everywhere triumphant, the terrible poverty was all around: the street children sleep on every continent. The poor people just gave up the ghost, and lied down the streets – waiting to die. It was too much to experience.

Among this actual terrorism of poverty and misery, there were always a few super wealthy people that lived in multiple story apartments, or in mini-castles of twenty-five rooms surrounded by severe walls with thug security. Legal trades and illegal trades, no outsider could tell where those elite crooks had made their loot money. But like the famous French writer of the nineteenth-century, Honore Balzac, quipped, ‘behind every great fortune, are even greater, hidden crimes.’

The other wealthy muggers across the world have represented the agents of the State, or the government. Those bum parasites comprised top politicians, high military officers, media moguls, and a few sell-out, good selling celebrities, added for public taste. All of them mixed together to bake the infernal pot of injustice, pride, inhospitality and sociopathic greed.

I write from the entrails of human history’s most notorious world empire. Some Americans continue to say that we don’t have terrible poverty rates, as those third world countries. There is even a smaller group, yet a substantial one, who certify that the Amerikan Empire is still the land of opportunity, and that us complainers: ‘need to get a job, grab the work ethic, or even, start are our own businesses.’ If our hard lives were only that easy…

Those brainwashed Empire supporters believe that every American comes with 25 grand in capital, to either begin a college education onto the path of prosperity, or embrace the hard work struggle in attaining the American Dream.

For most of us, we see the current Amerikan Nightmare – with no rainbow over the clouds. We won’t fall for the Wizard of Oz, Hollywood story happy ending. We know that the hideous mark of the wage slave is upon our foreheads.

Karl Marx successfully predicted that as Capitalism encroached within every corner and crack on the Earth, the entire political economic system would transform into more outrageous distortions, operate faster and faster, and create profit scams over every conceivable material object on the Earth, and even devour and cannibalize its own worker ants. At least Marx was right about a few things.

Capitalism under its contemporary, global monopoly stage, operates under the whims of the global rich elites with the government apparatus, State enablers. Those two teams are always united and banded together, and continually wage war against the rest of the world population.

The political hacks like to harp on ‘democracy,’ but there is no democracy in the workhouse of Capitalism. Capitalism is one of the most heinous dictatorships existing in our contemporary life.

The corporate directors-owners and their political buddies simply parasite off our lives. They hire us without work contracts or make us sign flim-flam ones. They also expect us to arrive to the work site on their time, so they can suck the life out of us during their scheduled work day.

The owner and his family clique can leave work whenever they want, nonetheless, we the workers have to stay on the job and finish our ‘shift.’ We do have unpaid lunches however. Is it not ironic that they want us, ‘laborers,’ to give them at least two weeks notice before leaving, yet they can fire at us at will anytime – and for any reason?

As Marx also stated, the most pressing actual war for all of us is the class war. The political-economic rulers have declared a most vicious war against us. Have we then, opted to fight for our own survival, and stand on our duty for own self-defense?

A few have. But most of the human population has resigned themselves to wage slavery. Most of those people will remain wage slaves for the rest of their lives, and they have lost their final shreds of dignity and honor – nor do they particularly care.

A few others have gone the route of vagabond-traveling, street busking, or even begging on the streets. At least those jobs are tax-free. We might not like their methods, but they are the intelligent ones. They know that there is no future for them in this unjust world. The owners can simply wait and collect the profits, while they laugh at the multitude of unemployed, underemployed and pathetic wage slave losers begging for work.

Recently, I took a crappy retail job because I needed the money – in order to pay rent, utility bills, health bills, auto bills, food bills and other miscellaneous fines and fees, inclusive of the taxation scam. Not surprisingly, I worked for a dishonest and disreputable lowlife, and here is the punch line: I received the same hourly wage that I earned 20 years ago, when I had worked at other crap service sector jobs. After so many years of 5% annual inflation, living costs have more than doubled – yet I was receiving the identical wage from another historical epoch!

The working class is dead, and never to rise. The owner class has successfully eliminated most of the good, blue-collar jobs, except for a few, well-paid professional services. The good job list has included donut cops and prison guards, university-college and hospital administrators, government bureaucrats, corporate attorneys and corporate accountants, doctors in private practice, skilled repairmen, the electrical maintenance fields, software-hardware engineering, master mechanics, plumbers, builders and welders, the specialized trades in transport-distribution-oil-mining-gas work, and of course, all those executive positions in the banking, financial, real estate and insurance scam services. Did I forget sports and entertainment celebrities?

The other lucky ones with good job opportunities are the ex-high class students, graduates of the Amerikan liberal, elite universities, such as Harvard, Yale and Princeton – and sometimes inclusive of the other Ivy-leaguers and the western false-ivies, such as Chicago, Northwestern, Rice, Berkeley and Stanford. Most of those ex-students, the favored alumni, are the common exceptions to the bad job, debt-wage slavery life.

Marx referred to the lowest social class under capitalism, as the lumpen proletariat, or the ‘lumpens.’ The rich, wealthy elites are transforming all of us into this class. This social class of people implies the lowlifes who perform the odd, temporary work, crap jobs for cheap money.

This low class of people hangout in bars or churches, and they often drift from town to town, or even become home bums. The real dishonest ones move into petty crime, such as fraud and street hustling, bank robbing, shabby gangster scams, or they manipulate the government handout system in order to grab a little ‘free government money.’ Those fakers especially like ‘disability’ payments ad infinitum. Many lumpens end up locked away in one Amerika’s numerous prison gulags – or they sell their body-soul property to the US military.

I remember the other recruits in my military unit. They definitely did not represent the ‘well off.’ Some were in the military because the judge gave them the choice between ‘service,’ or the ‘lock up.’ Others had different kids from different women. Some dudes just had no good prospects in life – they were from the low breeding of bad luck: urban or rural poverty. Was it not absurd that the lowest social class became the main assassins for the US Empire of Sociopaths, meaning that they were fighting for the actual elites – who had originally destroyed their families through low wages and criminal neglect?

There is no Revolution on the way. The union bosses, like their politician bosses, are on the legal bribe and kickback system, and they actually earn salaries similar to corporate executives!

No matter what the Marxist sect nut jobs scream, there is no class consciousness, since many of us sleep, defecate, eat and drink alone. We must resign ourselves to the bad death through overwork or criminal neglect from no work.

Capitalism is on the one-way, death grip – tightening real hard. This utterly rotten system will create a more horrible, intense burning Hell, which awaits for all us. We can expect periodic homelessness, hunger bouts, and falling into sickness.

Meanwhile, the prison doors remain open – and once the guards usher us in, they will lock us up forever. We will eventually die there, like so many other elderly prisoners before us and after us. Some of us have opted for the sweet death of opiates and other hard drugs – hoping to die quicker than expected.

Once we see the lying politicians, of whatever political persuasion, speaking about offers of phony economic-political concessions – then watch out! This is one of their criminal traps and ploys to scare us into submission. But this does tell us one thing – they are the ones scared and weak.

Street fighting man or woman – grab your gun! Better to lose our mental chains. We shall die with dignity and honor.

 Pyramid-Schemepolitical elites and officer's clubvoting1fast-student-loan-for-collegeBank fees explainedmortgage-scam-faxLow-Cost-Life-Insurance-free-quotesinnocent teen locked up in prison 3 yrs. commits suicide

Human civilization has always existed as one gigantic pyramid scheme.

A few individuals have possessed the innovative ideas, or charismatic power with good weapons, or sufficient capital funds, or often just, the right family connections to put their genius into operation. With some tact and personable skills, they could transform any successful corporate body, political, economic or both.

Those people have represented the chosen few of the political-economic elites, or the sociopolitical elect. The rest of humanity has had to struggle for survival, perform the daily crap labor, and ultimately, suffer the strangulation of their energy and the sapping of their human dignity – and then they just drop dead. Such is the melancholy absurdity, which parasites off our painful existence.

Throughout the schemes of human history, about 10,000 years so far, the pyramid schemes of family dynasties, royal blood lines, wars of conquests, slavery systems, ethno-state religions and stable market commodities, have nonetheless helped particular geographic populations reinforce social ties. Those same schemes also allowed non-conformists some cultural spaces for creativity. This ancient system of reciprocity and cohesion does not exist anymore.

Now, under Global Monopoly Capitalism, the political-economic elites who rule over such an infernal system don’t care if some pathetic, lower class person loses his or her job, house, land, savings, freedom, family, money and even physical health.

The Modern State and International Capital has declared a nasty war against the poor and the frugal. This fetid scenario is nowhere more apparent inside the monster of the Amerikan Empire.

How could I become so stupid? This is one of the interior screams that woeful American graduate students make after so many years slaving inside a doctoral program. What shocked me when I was attending graduate school was not so much the scam Liberal Arts program that took away my money, paid me terribly, and would never give me a decent job in the future; rather, it was the entire pyramid structure of the American university operation.

I attended a western state land grant university, a so-called non-profit, state associated entity. That institution was anything but ‘not for profit’ – rather everything functioned as a shameless profit scam. The marks of the institution were the students, which included the graduate students, such as myself.

The professional administrator class comprised the Chancellors, Regents, the President, Presidential aides, Vice presidents, Provosts, Vice Provosts, Directors, Associate Directors, Assistant Directors, Deans, Assistant Deans, and multiple other ‘non-profit’ Executive ‘Assistants’ who completely ran the joint.

They all made high six figure salaries and had excellent, full benefits, including the university donut cops on the beat. It was like entering the old Communist Party run dictatorships of Eastern Europe. The Executive bureaucracy ruled everything and had absolutely no oversight. Their will was law on campus.

Although those bosses championed hard work – none of them did any work! They didn’t teach any classes, and instead, would attend multiple meetings-retreats with bogus themes on development, construction, alumni, strategy, grants and mission. These same slackers would then spam multiple e-mails to the campus wide university net. Their hours and schedules were always flexible – and they never had any contacts with students – except for the badly paid student workers that filed their office papers.

Why did supposedly intelligent people, such as myself, venture into such a scam and trap? We students and staff workers wanted a possible better job in the future with the hundreds of flim flam degrees that the higher education system promised us. We were simply fools for the education bait.

The American University offered choices, yet most of the degrees had many required classes to take. Some of the classes had nothing to do with the degree subject. But students had to plow through the course loads, and many of the courses had offerings only one time per school year, so if a student missed a required course, then this often sent the student back another year. Students found it hard to graduate within four years.

At the same time, the university administrators kept railing about austerity on the campus, while they would jack up the tuition costs each successive year. By the end of my studies, the tuition doubled to outrageous levels. Students had to sign for more student loans often recommended by ‘financial aid’ advisers that had special contacts with the same debt slavery banks giving out the extortion rates!

The admins inflated the products sold on the campus – and later sold them as sub-standard items, such as parking garages, and the crappy food services, often served through illegal alien workers. Illegal aliens also performed the general cleaning services. For most of the other ‘academic’ services, the university hired the debt ridden undergraduate students to perform minimum wage labor, usually in the libraries and bureaucratic offices.

The university further penalized students through its myriad of bogus fess or regressive taxation schemes, such as registration fees, late fees, special course fees, laboratory fees, teaching instruction fees, classroom fees, graduation fees, etc. The university bookstore was the most shameless entity involved in price inflation.

For the teaching loads, this same university hired many part-time adjunks to teach the multiple, university level, Liberal Arts courses. Some adjunks even received less than 1000$ per for four months of teaching! In the Sciences, the departments relied heavily on foreign graduate students possessing foreign student-worker visas to perform the menial laboratory work. For such a cheap salary, the science departments worked them late into the early morning hours.

The American Higher Education industry has operated as the greatest pyramid scheme in recent modern history. The students willing paid for courses that the administrators, with no teaching experience, recommended. Next, the students entered into a lifetime of debt slavery, finally receiving a flim flam paper degree. Ultimately, most students encountered no good job prospects after graduations. And yet, they had to pay back the interest on the loans that would stay with them for the rest of their miserable lives! Meanwhile, the university administrators lived it up, did no useful work and enjoyed the six figure salary lifestyle.

This Amerikan, imperial political economy represents the world epicenter of pyramid scheme-scams. Every single institution within the capitalist nightmare of the United States operates under the same rubrics of extreme fraud and shameless swindle. The more flagrant abuses and profits, the better the organization. And why not, the federal, state and municipal governments get away with such extravagant legal crimes!

A pyramid scheme is simply a dishonest job situation where the one’s running the ‘business’ make sure that the profit comes out of the pockets from the duped marks. Those businesses offer no production of value, while they generally do produce shoddy products. The purpose of the business is not mass production, but committing legal fraud against the same workers who often receive no salary, or very low money, for their labor.

The only way to avoid such a scenario is either to become a homeless, traveling bum or just try to get scammed rarely, so that a little capital remains for survival. Unfortunately, we have more examples inside the imperial monster.

US military recruiters target working class saps for a disciplined military life, which includes free work training and a good step into the corporate world. The willing marks forget the most serious tradeoffs inside of this shell game: they all enter as enlisted servants. When a typical civilian enters the US military, regardless of their educational background, they willingly sell themselves as contracted slaves. Once they sign the contract, the US government now controls and owns their actual bodies and minds.

Any military officer can order an enlisted slave to clean the toilets, mow the lawns, clean the decks, spit shine the floors, rearrange bricks, police field areas, or clean a naval or artillery gun. The enlisted slave has to obey the orders, or they will receive a court-martial and an eventual bad paper discharge.

Meanwhile, the top officers receive six figure salaries, have full social privileges on base, get the best benefits including good medical services, and every few years, when the US government starts another war, they rise up quickly in rank, yet they don’t have to risk their lives in the ugly combat arena.

Corporate banks have accounts with almost no interest whatsoever, yet they use the deposit money for their own financial investments. This same bank then punishes the depositor through a myriad of fees and fines: late checks, low balances, excessive account changes, little account use, debit card limitations, bank card withdrawals, etc. For many working class Americans, they cannot even open a minimum deposit bank account, so they have to use the Check Cashing-Instant Cash scam outfits that regularly use extortion loans in order to steal people’s personal properties.

Most American Job scams demand years of experience, yet most applicants don’t have the necessary years of experience that the bosses demand. The executive managers push a particular fraud where they can receive legal slave labor, or otherwise called, unpaid internships. The applicant thinks they are getting experience, yet they destroy their personal dignity by becoming pathetic slaves with no remuneration whatsoever. This horrible con is all legal. The corporate executives laugh as they receive their humongous annual bonuses.

For purchasing housing mortgages and new autos, the willing marks forget that their payments go straight to the bank. As they pay the monthly installments, about a hundred times more than what the actual house or vehicle is worth, the bank-dealer ‘property’ depreciates. Meanwhile, they must pay another interest rate scam on top of the depreciating payments, plus any other incurring fees that come with the purchase. By the time, the signer reads the full contract, the fees will also increase over time. Any missed payment throws the debt slave into economic limbo, and the banks can later seize the property permanently. All of the previous payments result in nothing to own.

In order to drive any vehicle or pay taxes without penalties, all Americans must pay for mandated insurance. The insurance companies through the violence of the State force all Americans to purchase outrageously priced premiums. Even with some hefty payments, Americans must still pay high auto and medical services. In the case of autos, any points on the driving record, will shoot the rate high into the sky. The corporate hospitals also jack up the prices on basic services, including everything from bandages to talking to a medical doctor. The hospital, insurance and auto dealer owners all enjoy superior profits.

Supermarket chains have most of their cheap GMO products listed with the 99 cents category and often add their ‘low prices’ for only those clientele that have the pre-purchased scam ‘discount card,’ so a 7.99 product with the taxes included often comes to around 10$.

Restaurants, bars and cafes will describe regular dishes with flowery and foreign words on their menus in order to raise their prices. The server also has to push expensive drinks on to the customers. Yet, the customers are the ones that pay most of the salaries of the employees. Americans usually pay 20% over the final check, including taxes, all included as the server’s tips! Meanwhile, the owners receive the bulk of the inflated profits, after purchasing cheaply distributed GMO foods.

Using the American Legal conundrum is a complete sham. All American legal services require multiple layers of fees, and even in small claims court. In order to fight a brutal prosecution of a felony, the defendant needs a good attorney, which will cost thousands of dollars. If the person languishes in jail, then he or she will need a bail bond, which can cost up to tens of thousands of dollars. if the perpetrator does not have the money, then the victim could suffer in jail for a while – a very long while. Nowadays, trials are not speedy, and the pre-trial prison term can cover up to a year!

If a defendant receives a misdemeanor conviction, then he or she will receive a probationary period that requires thousands of dollars in payments, and this is especially true for DUIs. If the convict receives a parole sentence after leaving prison, then the convict must also make both monetary payments and time payments to the parole officer. Any parole violation will put the prisoner back into the prison gulag. Yet, all convictions are permanent stains on the person’s public record, so it is almost impossible to receive a job or a stable residence. The judges, wardens, police lieutenants and state prosecutors continue to receive their six-figure salaries – regardless of any previous legal misconduct.

Even the Amerikan Voting system, or political selections, is a hoax. Americans have a choice of two self-promoted, wealthy individuals that represent only two parties, both of which, support and prop up this whole pyramid scheme political-economic system. The parties select the hack who seems to represent the most winnable candidate, while the person running for office will change their positions constantly in order to get the six-figure paying position.

There are a lot more pyramid schemes within the Amerikan Empire, from double dipping cell phone services to high-rocket charging, city utility services. The Amerikan Nightmare persists and gloats in twisting, torturing its poorer victims. A few poor souls just give up and choose the route of honorable suicide. They know that Amerikan society has nothing more to offer.

There is nothing we can do, and this unjust and cruel political-economic system will only get worse – as the global capitalist economy drops further into its terrible, recurring depressions. The sociopaths in power don’t care anymore.

For us, we can only recite the truth and publicly condemn this whole, criminal, violent, imperial monster. So let us proclaim the truth: the Amerikan Empire exists as the most profound depravity of evil that human history has ever witnessed and experienced.

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

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

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

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

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

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