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.

The wonders of feeling served, cared for, and looked after represent some of our greatest life experiences. Even when we are physically ill, good rest and wholesome care help us to achieve that piece of mind and marvelous plateau of comfort. These actions display the gifts of unconditional love and they can eventually lead to true healing.

One of the most brutal aspects inside the culture of modern capitalism has been its perversion of such care. Whether they have the names of ‘health care, culinary centers,’ or ‘festival parks,’ capitalism has mugged and institutionalized the older enchantments of strong familial relations and community bonds into their profit-making enterprises.

These institutions have even gone farther into the crimes of legal theft and profiteering. The occult history of restaurants actually began in China during the 1200s, and for our modern restos, in France during the 1700s.

On a rough day in 1760s Paris, a coarse gentleman was clumping in the thin, narrow, cobblestone and nasty dirt, medieval streets of the city. The season was the beginning of an early winter in late November. The cold air was dead with frost, yet whips of cool wind fury could brutally bite the toughest soldier. He was also walking during the ratty, early morning hours. The sky had possessed an overcast grey muddy tinge that led to more foreboding.

The man wore his black hair in long locks with a tail at the end. He was clothed in an overcoat, a vest, a white blouse shirt, and unlike other wealthier men at the time, had on worker pants, while his long black leather boots covered his lower pant legs. He was of medium height, mostly clean-shaven, except for a permanent stubble on the chin and cheeks, and his face had that look of deep thought mixed with the pains of human suffering. He suffered from a mysterious illness inside his belly, a common ailment for that historical time.

He was actually walking to a ‘restaurant,’ a specialized medical dining hall that would hopefully ‘restaurer,’ or restore his health. There were a few in Paris, and this one was famous for its large spoon and bowl over the front door that advertised its palliative care. In those days, they still didn’t use numbers for specific addresses.

When he finally arrived at the care place, there were already a group of men, women and children sitting at the common table. The common table had the name of ‘table d’hôte,’ or the host’s table. He sat down at the end and already felt a nagging feeling.

The hostess suddenly slammed the large soup containers, hard bread, and salt in the middle of the large wooden, dirty table. The center mass of sick people began to hog the soup for the best choices of boiled chicken scrap, ‘bouillon,’ or broth, and seasonal cooked veggies. The bowl went around the table and so the people at the ends had to deal with what was left over. Eating at these places was often a surprise, since the meals often sat for a long time in large pots over the kitchen fire. Such was the ‘pot luck’ in those days. The tired man ate his food and paid his usual cheap ‘écus’ for the simple fare.

He also noticed some out-of-town travelers from the provinces at the table. The hostess charged them the ‘traveler’ fee, which was more expensive. He felt lucky in that he was a ‘Parisian’ local and knew the going rate. Until this very day, many restaurants are notorious for trying to fleece and legally rob unwary customers and out-of-town visitors.

This type of restaurant lasted until the French Revolution of the 1790s. By the beginning of the nineteenth-century, the 1800s, unemployed cooks that had previously worked for the parasitical ‘aristocrats’ began to advertise their culinary skills. If they had any capital, they could open a ‘restaurant’ for the ‘bourgeoisie,’ or upper class, owner-elites. These elites wanted to taste the exquisite plates from the previous epoch of sensual-gluttonous, aristo dining, represented by ten course meals.

The cooks offered ‘menus,’ or selected plates for the day at fixed prices and at certain eating times of the day. The cook owners cut up the tables to make sure there was greater privacy for the paying diners. Such was the birth of the modern restaurant that still spits out its notoriety.

Fine restaurants have continued to thrive as the ultimate conspicuous show of elitism and consumption. The wealthy elites can eat the ‘fine food,’ and enjoy the restaurant ambience, while they thumb their noses at the lower classes that cannot often afford to dine out.

Restaurants would soon perfect their harsh, capitalist division of labor. First came the owner, then the day-to-day manager, next the hot cook, or main cook, ‘le chef,’ and later, the front staff, waiters and hosts, or ‘serveurs.’ and finally the rest of the back staff – busboys, prep and assistant cold plate cooks – and the lowly dishwasher-general cleaner. But in China, five hundred years earlier, the restaurant existed as the extension of the spice and food market.

During the Sung dynasty in China, around the 1230s, this political dynasty had constructed a new capital and market center called Hangzhou. Hangzhou was not an ordinary city for those times. This megalopolis sold every type of imaginable fish, meat, vegetable and fruit – and most importantly, herbs and spices. Within the massive market, the traveler could find Muslim merchants coming from their routes in Africa and Asia, and even well-traveled Jewish merchant traders resided in the city. Famous world travelers visited the site, such as Marco Polo and Ibn Battuta. The city was also the most populous city in the world with over one million inhabitants.

Within the canal and urban jungle labyrinth of markets, buyers and sellers, the visitor could taste the culinary wonders of the world. The majestic stories were quite famous concerning the beautiful city on the lake and the green hills surrounding it. The wonderful foods, tastes, exotic sights, stalls, markets, herbs, smells, and spices enchanted Europeans accustomed to the harsh medieval cereal, legume and vegetable diet.

European elites began to desire a more refined table and palette, and they also wanted more culinary art diversity and a regular diet of diverse meats and fishes.

Local food preparers in Hangzhou prepared stuffed dumpling delights, and mixed noodle and soup plates. These European elite desires for the gourmet plate led to the colonial sea race in order to find another maritime route to India, China and the South Seas, (or the South China Sea lands of Malays, Siamese, Khmers, Laos, and Annam-Champa, or Vietnam).

Six hundred years later, elite Europeans would become the colonial-imperial curse on the Earth. European elites had idolized the sensuality of food over the healthy and hearty diet of the European peasant. The display of wealth and class power had trumped the warm feeling of family and community around a simple, yet tasty fare.

Our modern restaurant is the sacred symbol of food idolatry, small time savage capitalism and the fraudulent display of class position. The resto ultimately serves the rich and lazy that refuse to cook for themselves. The elites want the culinary arts that come with money, yet they refuse to do the labor. Someone else must labor, and labor mercilessly, in order for the money people to enjoy the experience – and the profiteering.

This vice is especially true for the restaurant owners. They might know a lot about food, and a few might even have worked as chefs before, but their main hankering is for a profit, or taking advantage of the mark, or customer, and the laboring staff. If this means buying cheap, genetically modified wholesale food for consumption, leaving out side dish food in metal canisters with plastic wrap for over a month, charging triple prices for cheap drinks, or even taking half-eaten food scraps and putting them in the general use bins – they will do it. The restaurant owner truly wants to make a profit, not feed humanity out of love.

Some restaurant owners have never done kitchen work in their lives. They simply inherited the joint from their parents, or as small time capitalists, they went into restaurant work because they thought that the money would come quickly and easily. They often hire their friends and buddies from previous business ventures, and who also know very little about food and drinks, to manage the dives. Woe unto the service workers that have to deal with these restaurant hells. If the city health inspectors really did their jobs, they would close those rancid places down.

US Restaurants often attract the most vicious, petty, mean, and cheap bosses from the small business owner class, or the petit bourgeoisie. Due to the heavy use of cash, the restaurant racket, like construction, can easily hide the underground economy, or ‘under the table’ money, from the government. In America, the owners can get away with paying a slave wage to the front staff, since the marks, or the customers, are partly required to pay the servers’ wages through ‘tips.’

Also in America, restaurants like construction, hotels and cleaning services, are the mainstays in hiring illegal immigrant workers, In restaurants, they all tend to work and stay hidden in the back kitchen. If the kitchen workers complain, then a call to the Immigration Service will suffice. I have even seen with my own eyes, Latino-mestizo workers from Mexico, Honduras and El Salvador doing the hot cooking in varied ethnic restaurants, such as Indian, Japanese, French, Ethiopian and Thai places!

I have my own personal work stories. When I was younger, I only worked in the back kitchen as a dishwasher for the desperation of needed travel money. I usual bolted when I had made enough cash, or the managers just fired me for religiously taking my breaks. I noticed that many of the young cooks were serious hard drug addicts and a few even sold hard drugs from the back doors.

The waitresses also acted nasty and rude. There were some serious infighting and petty hatreds between the cooks, hosts and servers. The restaurant boss had successfully used the old divide and conquer strategy. No wonder coffee was always free to the wage and tip slaves. Worker turnover was always high.

The workers often counterattacked by making deals with the bartender, including sleeping with him or her, in order to cop free drinks – after the lazy owner went AWOL from the job. The cooks stole copious amounts of food for their own late night deep-frying. The petty and pathetic servers with bad attitudes even made fun of the regular customers to the other staff, who generally ordered their usual meals and drinks – and yet tipped those assholes well.

Some Anarchists counter the anti-restaurant arguments by arguing in favor of vegan-cooperative ventures, or small, family owned restaurants and ethnic food enclaves. But these restaurant options suffer from the same diseases of capitalism – making more money.

If all restaurants use funny money, than they have to make some base profit in order to survive. In family ethnic restaurants the bosses are still bosses and often demand that all the workers share their tips with the owner, which is one of the last holdouts of feudalism. In order for alternative coops to make money, they have to cut corners too, and especially with food freshness. Vegetarian-vegan hipster cooperatives are often the worst abusers of reusing old breads, rice, millet and quinoa, and nuking pre-prepared plates, often made a few days ago, inside of their multiple microwaves – so much for freshness.

If a regular customer that likes to go out to eat and could see inside the actual kitchens and operations of restaurants, then he or she would refrain from visiting them regularly. The real issue, and especially for us Anarchists, is not succumbing to the vicious culture of global capitalism. We continue to pay the servers through our tips in order to help a cheap small business owner make a profit.

We could do the cooking labor at our homes, or at someone else’s house where the fare is often better than the resto variety. At least we know the freshness content of the food we are using. Cooking is also an art, and it is open to all of us humans, since we all do art in some form. Eating out is quite expensive too.

In our contemporary world, we cannot simply avoid restaurants and ban them completely from our lives. But we can cherish those special visits and occasions at our local eating place with family and friends and during festivities.

For those of us that travel, we often have no choice in the matter. If we are in a foreign country, then we would also want to try the local dishes. Youth hostels offer a good option for travelers since most of them have shared kitchens for guests.

We should always remember that the modern restaurant began as an informal medical place for the sick. If we are alive and still healthy, then let’s control our own food consumption and share the cooking within our own families and among our own small, friendly communities.

American corporatismObese_AmericaGMO companiesConAgraAmerican healthAmerikan medicine

For those of us unfortunates trying to survive in the Amerikan Empire, we always have to tolerate another war that the state apparatus in D.C. and the corporate medias regularly push. We have had the infamous Drug War, the Indian Wars, the Mexican War, various foreign invasions and interventions, the Civil War, WWI and WWII, the War against Drunk Driving, (really against alcohol), the Mormon War, the War against Terrorism, (well, against various low-level ‘terrorists’ – not state terrorists), the Cold War against International Communism, the War against Crime and the Poor, (low-level crime again – not against corporate or state criminals), the War against Carbon Gas Emissions (?), the War against Obscenity, (basically against erotica or anything having to do with sensuality), the War against Tax Evaders, (certain tax evaders however), etcetera.

Most of the Amerikan Empire’s observant holidays revolve around war: Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Armed Forces Day, Flag Day, Presidents Days, (American Revolution-Civil War), Loyalty Day, and Columbus Day, (Invasions-Discovery of the Americas). But all these examples have represented the Empire’s openly declared wars.

The Amerikan Empire has actually been engaged in numerous hidden wars since its inception in 1790. In the early 1800s, the US government sent a naval invasion force into Tripoli, North Africa, in order to punish the Barbary ‘pirate states,’ for example. The US government has overthrown governments, bombed and blown up humans, assassinated people, and instigated economic sanctions against scores of countries around the world – without ever declaring any official war whatsoever.

The same has also been true in the domestic sphere. In the early to mid 1800s, there was a national political party against the Freemasons, and later, there were the infamous Know Nothings that violently went after the Roman Catholics. The Amerikan Empire allowed both political parties to legally conduct their violence, just as the US government had unofficially allowed lynch murder against African-Americans and other criminal elements.

Nowadays, the political police of the Amerikan Empire, the FBI, regularly persecute Muslim-Americans, and there are now thousands of them rotting in the Amerikan gulag for longer prison sentences than most murderers and rapists.

The US government currently manages a host of other undeclared and subversive wars against particular targets. Most recently, the US government has pushed major corporate banks into robbing the deposits of certain businesses related to erotica, guns, cannabis, homeopathic drugs, organic tobacco, organic agriculture and locally brewed spirit-alcohols. The US government has regularly persecuted other small businesses that have had peculiar banking habits.

There has even been a recent, ongoing war that has acted in a far more deadlier fashion. This engagement represents the American Empire’s War against both our bodies and our minds, meaning their physical aspects. Why would the US government want to destroy our bodies and our minds?

The answer lies with the complete US government support for monopolistic practices of various major corporations in biotechnology, (such as Monsanto), processed foods, (such as Tyson), fast food joints, (such as McDonald’s), supermarket mega chains, (such as Wal-Mart), and beverage distributors, (such as Coca-Cola). Living inside this Empire is extremely hazardous to our health.

First, most of our public water suffers from hidden contamination due to fluoridated-chlorinated bleaching, while natural gas monopolies possess legal corporate rights to infect ground water supplies.

Second, most of the foods that one sees in corporate supermarket shelves have GMO, or Genetically Modified Organism infections. The meats and fishes are often from overcrowded and murderous factory farming, where the corporate processors even resort to animal torture and wholesale extermination. The corporate processors regularly inject the cattle animals with BVH growth hormones, and they overdose these same animals with overflowing antibiotics in order to hide the feces soaked, mutilated, infected sores.

American people’s notorious struggles with obesity, diabetes, circulatory blood diseases and cancers is not just because of large plate portions received inside of American restaurants. The culprit lies in the GMO poisons plastic wrapped for unwary consumers. This explains the reasons why the lumpens, and many of the working and middle classes in America suffer more from obesity than the bourgeois-owner social class. They often don’t have the money to buy the ‘organic’ fresh, local stuff.

Third, the American landscape, inclusive of the land, air and water, suffers from environmental contaminants due to the greater legal privileges given to mega corporations. Superfund sites now exist in all urban and rural environments. Certain restricted areas are actually off-limits to humans due to nuclear testing, chemical fallout and other industrial disasters.

A few ‘accidents’ have even become international lessons in the consequences of unregulated corporate personhood, such as the Exxon-Valdez Disaster in Alaska and the BP-Oil Spill in the Louisiana Gulf. Another corporate killer, Union Carbide, murdered thousands of Indians after one of their own negligent fallouts.

Fourth, most of our cleansers and cleaners, both for both our bodies and for the household, contain various contaminants, which actually destroy our interior worlds – even though they ‘get the job done.’ Some unwary gardeners have used the weed killer, ‘Roundup,’ which is from the same corporation that helped produce Napalm gas murdering millions of Vietnamese during the Vietnam War.

Fifth, The US government continually protects these same monopolies, often through periodic federal and state legislation, while the mega-corps will often try new public relations approaches in order to cover up past crimes. Regular citizens are the ones that have to endure the aftershocks of environmental suffering. The corporate boards of directors and owners live in special, gated community areas – often more ‘environmentally diverse.’

The so-called regulatory agencies, such as the well-armed FDA, or the Federal Drug Administration, protect the licensed and corporate killers, while they often target the local homeopathic drug providers for ‘fraud.’ The US govt.’s Department of Agriculture, Department of Energy, the Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management , (BLM), are also well-armed with machine guns. Again, they prefer to harass the regular people that use ‘their properties,’ rather than the corporate monopolies.

Sixth, the US government also works in tandem with another dubious triple-headed, monopoly monster, called the AMA, the APA and the ADA, or the American Medical Association, the American Psychiatric Association, and the American Dental Association. This unholy alliance moves into both the Biotech and Insurance corporate rackets where the ideology of ‘doctoring’ has transformed into a lucrative legal drug trade, while some expensive surgeries have full legal support. Meanwhile, alternative health programs receive the labels of ‘quackery,’ or unregulated and dangerous options.

One such government supported medical practice, or torture in recent medical history, represented the use of lobotomies on Americans, from the 1940s to 1960s. A few unfortunates, without their consent of course, had to undergo the ‘surgery,’ while imprisoned inside mental institutions. The psycho-quacks often used ice picks to rip apart the frontal lobes of their victims. Naturally, most of the victims either died painful deaths within a few years, or they turned into human blobs with little mental functioning. The psycho-quacks stopped using lobotomies due to the later efficacy of psychotropic medications.

Millions of Americans, especially active children, spinster women, hyper-intelligent young men, and returning combat veterans have bizarre, made up diagnoses stamped to their personalities. They are now the laboratory animals for the more powerful and legal psychotropic medications. The continual mass shootings in gun free zones across the country attest to their potency.

I have my own personal story. After living in Europe for some years, I decided to return to the Amerikan Empire. My first impressions during my return to the States, besides the flags flying everywhere and the massive loads of dangerous felony laws for every conceivable action, was the nasty looking, smelling and tasting American food.

In this case, the Europeans were right about American food – it was lethal garbage. The low standards of American foods were quite horrid from the low standards found in the cheap supermarkets in Europe. American foods generally had more of that bland and chemical taste. The meats and fish seemed worse off than the vegetables.

I also heard stories about the massive concentration camps that processed millions of murdered animals annually in the heart of the country. After seeing an undercover video of a slaughterhouse, I decided to become a vegetarian.

I was then a vegetarian for eleven years. I had replaced meats, fish and eggs with breads, rice, legumes and lots of soy products, but I still had a hard time losing weight. After a few years, I also realized that my vegetarian diet of soy, wheat and corn contained massive amounts of genetically modified poisons – and I especially discovered this debacle inside the vegan treats, many of which contained TVP, or textured vegetable protein, and processed GMO soy tofu.

Due to such body and health issues, I had quit the vegetarian diet and began to partake of the local diet coming from small farmers, collectors, ranchers and hunters. I only ate locally killed meats, and locally harvested nuts, fruits and vegetables.

Like millions of my fellow Americans on the permanent health watch, I must constantly live on guard, and stand ready against the relentless, genetically modified, crap food onslaught. As thousands of other Americans understand the truth, from this time on, I expose the US government’s insidious war against our bodies and our minds. This war is dead on serious, for we only come equipped in this life with one set.
