The names and forms of ideological groups often speak volumes about both their directions – and their mental chains.

Christians have often named their sects after their founders, such as Lutherans, Calvinists, Mormons, Wesleyans, Nestorians, Arians, Franciscans, Swedenborgians, Augustinians, Dominicans, or they have dubbed themselves according to their theological obsessions, such as Old Believers, Orthodox, Christian Science, Catholics, Adventists, Christadelphians, Baptists, Methodists, Jesuits, Carmelites.

Some Christians have identified their groupings according to race, and mostly due to Christianity’s part invention and support of racialism. Two examples represent the African Episcopal Methodists and the Chinese Baptists. Other Christian groups have used similar ethno-nationalist terms, such as the Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Armenian, Byzantine, Assyrian, Anglican, German Brethren, French Reformed, Dutch Reformed, Latin Catholic Rite, Eastern Catholic Rite.

Like the myriad of Christian cults in our modern world, Marxist sect groups have also named themselves after their revolutionary idols, such as Marxist-Leninists, Maoists, Stalinists, Guevarists, Trotskyists, or they have used titles proportional to their political fixations, such as Social Democrats, National Socialists, Socialist Worker, Socialist Action, Christian Liberationists, United Left, Popular Fronts, Left Front, Left Coalitions, Socialist Labor, Revolutionary Communists, Revolutionary Socialists. Like the Christians, Leftists also enjoy designating themselves according to their ethno-nationalist origins, such as Russian Communists, British Laborites, Spanish Socialists, French Communists, Indian Marxists.

Unfortunately, we Anarchists also have our ideological fronts, divisions, tendencies, sectarian splits and particular cliques. Unlike the Christians and Marxists, we do not label ourselves according to our religious-sect founders, nor do we name ourselves in relation to ethno-nationalist groups. We have no Bakuninists, nor Kropotkinists, nor Anarchists of America, nor any United Spanish Anarchists. However, we do label ourselves in proportion to our peculiar inclinations.

The biggest division within Anarchism is between the Insurrectionists and Civic Anarchists. The Insurrectionists use incendiary sabotage, hacktivism, retaliatory violence and property destruction against targeted elites, or the propaganda of the deed. The Civic Anarchists, use direct picketing, immediate shut downs, business boycotts, abandoned building or land squatting, direct media publishing, new age traveling, spontaneous street parties, natural medicine distributions, petty shoplifting, dumpster diving, free learning classes and totally free markets in order maintain some cultural autonomy.

Yet there are many Anarchists that use both tactics, and in fact, true Anarchist revolutionaries, use both methods. Both tendencies unite under the double activities of Anarchy: Direct Action and Mutual Aid.

Direct Action is the offense. It implies the Anarchist Act over Anarchist Words. As we say in America: walk the walk, over talking the talk. Mutual Aid is the defense, and it implies that if you reject the State, then help out others, and share with your fellow Anarchists through every facet of life: food, clothes, shelter, medical care, self-defense and cultural, non-institutional, education activities.

Within contemporary Anarchy, there is, unfortunately, a lot more words than Direct Action, and there is very little Mutual Aid that remains in Anarchist subcultures. With all of the Anarchist tendencies, and even the contradictory ones, they all unite under the hatred of the State – even if they create mini-States within their very own organizations.

Anarchy has unfortunately fallen into similar pits of ideological mess and hodgepodge as the Christian cult institutions and the Marxist-Leftist sect gangs. This is because of our ideological history, when Anarchy had first called itself Anarchism, or Anarcho-Syndicalism.

This ideological situation also has relations to the beginning of the armed struggle, fighting on both fronts: anti-Statism and anti-Capitalism. Around 130 years ago, and also due to possessing common enemies, Anarchists consorted among the other Leftist tendencies, such as the Socialists and the Communists.

What saved Anarchy from Marxist vanguardist and Christian sectarian mental illness was the Punk movement beginning in the 1970s. Punk rock culture returned Rock music to its roots through playing the original rock music, of Black-Working Class rebellion, and with this authentic return, Punk acted in full revolt against the wage slave-work-consumerist culture of Capitalist society. A few bands, such as the Clash, publicly exposed the State criminals and murderers. But like all cultural expressions of ‘rebellion,’ Capitalist culture fought back and eventually co-opted a good deal of the music and fashion sense.

There are still Anarcho-Syndicalists, or Anarcho working class agitators. They often fight through union organizing struggles, the most notable being the IWW, One Big Union, or the Wobblies. Once and a while they do have organizing successes against the bosses because they don’t have the six-figure salary, typical union boss overhead, i.e., the AFL-CIO union hacks, nor do they sell-out the workers during the contract negotiations. The Anarcho-Syndicalists know full well how the Capitalist system functions. Still, the IWW ‘Wobs’ often meet more defeats than victories, and Global Monopoly Capitalism is a lot more powerful than Industrial Capitalism was about a hundred years ago. The rotten capitalist system continues as strong as ever.

Another ideological tendency in contemporary Anarchism is Anarcho-Primitivism, or Green Anarchy. This view represents Anarchy united with a certain element of the Environmentalist movement. This orientation finds that our technology has become a literal social and cultural monolith, and that it has sucked out the joy and magic from our already dismal existence. Technological institutions have replaced Capitalist institutions as the destroyers of the living. Those Anarchists have been right about our dire situation – but it is too late now. Most of humanity has allowed both the laziness and slavery of technology to infiltrate their lives. This woeful actuality includes Anarchist subcultures.

Other contradictory ideologies have latched on to the Anarchy brand. In the United States, there is a large Anarcho-Capitalist perspective. They tend to write blogs, make videos, and have informal gatherings. Some of them are just as hard-core as the other previously mentioned Anarchist groups. This sect believes that there is a true possibility for a totally free capitalist market between willing individuals, and that technology will open and facilitate this freedom.

They use parts of Ayn Rand’s philosophy and take it to the American Libertarian fringe. The issue with this group is that many of them did not continue their readings with Adam Smith. In his Wealth of Nations, (published at the time of the American Revolution), Smith wrote that modern Capitalism absolutely needs the help of the State.

All socio-economic activities require some type of arbitration, or the markets will cease existing as actual markets – and will thus become nasty examples of Darwin’s Survival of the Fittest. Why pay for a product, if you can shoot the seller in the head, keep your money and the prize? And there’s the other way around, why give away your product, if you can just take the seller’s money and shoot the buyer in the head afterwards?

There are also Anarcho-Nationalists, or Anarcho-Fascists. These sects embrace the idea of race, nation and people over other inferior groups or enemies, yet they don’t want a State. How could they even conceive of such a society? How would they even defend themselves from their enemies, which have to fight them eventually since their ideology is so extreme, without even resorting to a state? The only way to mobilize any modern military organization is the institution of the modern state.

And yes, there still exist the Anarcho-Communists. They want a Communist society without a Communist state. They see hope for a utopia vision of a Communist society inside the writings of Karl Marx – or possibly Thomas More’s Utopia, or perchance, the pre-European invaded, Native societies of the Americas? This political cult forgets that humans cannot retrace their steps back into the dark realms of human history. We are very different from those earlier societies. The modern capitalist state destroyed those societies for a reason. We simply can never return to the past.

There are also the sub-sects of Anarcho-Nihilists, who reject all politics, and Anarcho-Surrealists who prefer to fight the system through anti-corporate media activities, even creating ‘anti-events,’ where they counter co-opted festivals and exhibitions.

Anarchy returns to its full circle around the A.

Our only noble fight left remains Autonomy. We cannot destroy any modern class society because there will always exist certain humans that crave power, control and authority, and even inside Anarchist circles; nor can we return to a historical period with less technology and smaller communities. Our minds have permanently mutated through the repetitive use of technology, and through learning brutal habits, while surviving inside the urban monster, called the megalopolis.

Autonomy means that we use all of our personal energies and efforts to maintain both our dignity and honor. We should try to avoid laboring and destroying ourselves inside any demeaning wage slave work. We ought to live our lives the way we see fit. We can refrain from consumerist buying, striving for the Amerikan nightmare, taking out loans, investing in pyramid schemes, borrowing, lending and gambling.

We could remain physically free to live outside of the cages and shackles of the prison industrial complex and the State supported institutional system, which includes hospital clinics, state mandated schools and police-paramilitary units.

We would prefer death over some open or disguised form of slavery. Our dignity and honor depend on maintaining these freedoms and liberties. If we live as Anarchists, then we can never trade nor sell out our sacred autonomy. Autonomy is all that remains.

History leans hard on the printed word, so that it may expose the total image.

The good historian also knows that the pictures, images, symbols, signs, iconography, and even the frames, can offer greater volumes of information than the printed texts.

This adage reigns true for the human condition under civilization. Facial contortions, and especially the glare of the eyes, can offer a glimpse into the soul of the speaker. The eyes often reveal more than the illusory speech of a boastful coward – or even of a supposed friend. Sometimes the glare of the criminal’s eyes gives away the sweetness of his or her comforting lies.

We Anarchists also need to look into the eyes of both our supposed friends and our known enemies. Through the human eyes, facial contortions and actions – we shall know the truth. This hard fact has often represented the depths of evil that our enemies possess. And yes, they truly do possess those profound depths of evil, which even force the most jaded and experienced of us to shiver and shutter in shock.

About 30 years ago, May 13th, 1985, the Amerikan imperial monster showed once again its nefarious and murderous exploits. It was not exactly the US Federal Government at its most sinister deeds; instead, it was one of those corrupt, third world juntas of big city government, only found inside of the Amerikan Empire. Of course, it began in the northeast region of the States.

In this part of the Amerikan Empire, these big cities cauldrons of injustice hold severe laws against citizens practicing their rights to bear arms. Among its dirty streets, urban police gangs roam rampant with complete autonomy to torture and murder their victims, while there exists a politically corrupt system, called ‘City Hall.’ The district attorney, or state prosecutor, aligns continually with the police gangs and the mayor against its subject citizens. The Democratic Party-Progressive Gangs-Juntas have run over these northeast towns, as they have further controlled other megalopolis centers across the nation.

Something was bound to go down with lots of blood and fire – and so they chose a ‘religious-political cult’ to exterminate. They burned alive children and adults with fine gunpowder, heartless steel, and burning precision. Only decades earlier, this same US government practiced this fine art of murder on the Filipinos, later the Japanese, then the Koreans, and next, the Indochinese.

A century before, this monstrosity of lies and human annihilation worked its murderous magic on the native holdout nations, such as the Lakota and the Dine. Also during this same time in history, thousands of African-Americans died horrible deaths through malnutrition, starvation, overwork, police murder, perpetual imprisonment, burning at the stake, brutal hangings-lynchings, or simply, the art of legal murder.

These Amerikan kings and princes of lies and murder have always represented the most sophisticated experts in such nefarious arts. They have been quite secure in their madness because they also have had the local media on their side. The mainstream media has always backed up the official story of phony events. Still to this day, the crooks and liars in the corporate media parrot the incessant, contradictory government accounts.

Not many historians can discern the violent relations between the repressive institutions of government and their chosen enemies. During that same historical period, the US government was also involved in a covert war against revolutionary-religious organizations, or as the intelligence services described them, ‘religious cult-terrorist’ organizations. The US government wanted the Sixties exposure of its crimes finished, and it used every illegal method in the arts of state terrorism to finish off the Black Panthers, the Black Liberation Army and the radical maniacs of the Symbionese Liberation Army.

A new NGO complex began to support the state terrorists in both the US federal and state governments. One such group of sociopaths represented CAN, or The Cult Awareness Network. This group began to target certain ‘bad’ religious groups, such as The Moonies, The Hare Krishnas, Scientology, The Family International, Rajneesh International, and other unpopular groups within the vast religious spectrum found in the United States. This network of ‘experts,’ of course, ignored the more established religious groups, such as the Roman Catholic Church, the Southern Baptist Convention, the Mormon Church, Jewish Hasidic sects, and The Nation of Islam. There was also the recent mass suicide of the Jim Jones People’s Temple in November 1978.

Before there was Green Anarchy, there was MOVE. This group was mostly African-American based, but was also interracial. They practiced spirituality, communal living, vegetarianism, the rights of animals, ecology, recycling, wore dreads, forsook excessive showers and chemical products – and they openly carried firearms and possessed them for self-defense – regardless of the law. They started in Philadelphia, and so they became the perfect target for the state criminals within that rancid city hall.

First, the mayor used the police to harass them, shoot at them, arrest them, and even murder one of their members. MOVE fought back, and after a shootout that left one dead cop, the state put nine of them in prison for life! One died in prison, and the rest still rot in the Amerikan gulag until this very day. The local government burned down their house, and so they moved into another home in a mostly African-American neighborhood.

Because of their radical lifestyle within an urban neighborhood, MOVE racked up a list of local neighbor complaints. The city government thugs now moved in for the final liquidation of the enemy. Normally, local city governments in the Amerikan Empire have cared little about neighborhood complaints, and especially in African-American neighborhoods. But for some reason, these neighborhood complaints were quite important.

Philadelphia had an African-American mayor then. It didn’t matter because he was also within the cabal to exterminate MOVE. The district attorney at the time began to charge MOVE with a whole list of outrageous crimes picked from the volumes of minor infraction laws that Amerikan politicians concoct annually. With the ‘legal prosecution’ flim flam in tow, the brute force of police gangs and firemen thugs encircled the home.

The police initiated a fire fight inside the home, and when the people inside tried to escape, they shot them down like wild coyotes on the prowl. The police then dropped a massive bomb on the roof, and the whole building turned into an inferno. Meanwhile, the firemen watched, laughed, and refused to put the fire out. The African-American neighbors would pay for their complaints.

The fire spread into the entire neighborhood, destroying family homes and irreplaceable personal effects. Neighbors evacuated their homes and became legally homeless. Only two MOVE members survived the mass murder, a woman and her child. The city government burned eleven people to death including five children inside the MOVE building. After this massacre of pure evil, the neighbors who lost their homes could not get any compensation from the city.

The district attorney charged the lone surviving woman of MOVE and sent her to prison. Not one government official did any prison time for this heinous act of mass murder. In fact, the culprits all received accolades and promotions! The mayor entered the respected religious pastor role. The prosecutor later became mayor, and even later, the governor of the state, and all the police and fire gangs received generous ‘combat’ pensions. Crime does pay – and especially if you hold power.

Only a few years later, the US government, under the same Democrats, would successfully murder other targeted victims, and this time, ones with white skin privilege, in Waco, Texas. They called themselves the Branch Davidians under their leader, David Koresh. The US government would use almost the same tactics, throwing massive firepower at them, and then burning the people alive inside of the building. While the US government spread a lie that Koresh was abusing the children, it was the same US government that had burned all the children alive!

These historical examples have clearly shown how the US, state and municipal governments work. When the Amerikan Empire murders, it truly believes that it’s actually saving its victims. When the Amerikan Empire destroys, it wholeheartedly thinks that it is truly rebuilding.

Sociopaths believe that when they commit a crime it is actually something good and heroic. The actions of a sociopath shock most of humanity, yet the sociopath feels no remorse, nor feels any sympathetic emotions towards the victims of the crimes. The same scenario holds true for both the economic and political elites of the Amerikan Empire.

The sociopath sees the general society as the enemy, and this is why the sociopath targets various people and groups for violence, and often against people who cannot fight back. The US government possesses similar world views against both its domestic population and the entirety of the world population.

The sociopath ingeniously covers and hides the finds, markers and evidence of the crime from the public light, while they often maintain cool and respected public personas. Those that hold power in the Amerikan Empire have also exhibited similar behaviors.

Sociopaths have always used cunning schemes to encircle their enemies, and to make them completely disarmed for eventual torture and extermination. We are all under the nefarious glare of the Amerikan imperial overlords. They are currently preparing such an accursed fate for all of humanity.

Our future on this planet looks dismal, but we can fight back. As the sociopath cannot stop the killing nor the abuse, so the Amerikan Empire will continue to commit unfathomable holocausts with the complete destruction of all life – or until we put an end to such madness.

We cannot fight the US government sociopaths militarily as of now, but we can educate ourselves about their true historical crimes and cover ups. We can ignore their corporate media events, crap TV sitcoms, mind numbing reality shows, advertising, publicity and lies.

We can practice full non-cooperation with their institutional systems, such as avoiding legal work, paying taxes, voting, sitting on juries, taking their oaths of service, or refusing to serve in the military, etc. We can practice with our weapons, both with snap caps at home and with live fire at the range, also reviewing our cleaning and safety protocols.

If enough of us reject the Sociopath, then the Sociopath will rail and scream – and plot its next move. But we will stand ready. We already know its history, methods and madness. The Sociopath will murder another round of millions, but it will eventually die within its own putrid blood and liquid excrement. All Sociopaths eventually stumble into their own schemes and traps. Let us prepare for the inevitable.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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