“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” Sun Tzu, ancient Chinese intellectual, 544-496 BCE

Sun Tzu once again wrote the truth. The warrior has to truly understand his or her enemies – and his or her own weaknesses.

This method also applies a full understanding of the enemy’s total world views, reading their articles and books, and especially, and most importantly, getting inside their minds.

This method fully understands their tactics, and so we will stay ready for their coming affronts. The most important questions revolve around: why do they hate us so much, and why do they want to exterminate us physically? Our enemies have operated a continual war against us.

We can look at their social class backgrounds. They represent mostly high socio-economic elites, and they tend to work in the fields of state media propaganda, government-union bureaucracies, state mandatory education, software corporations, and corporate entertainment media. Note where they live, such as urban enclaves in high-priced sections of town with gated communities, or doormen, elevator men, or armed security.

Smart observers will analyze their cultural formations, which often represent university-college trained ideologies. We could even scrutinize their cultural tastes, such as preferring to dine out in restaurants rather than cook their own meals, frequenting certain ‘hipster’ hangouts, such as expensive bars, clubs with lots of synthetic drug use, and attending gigs of certain genres of music.

These observations relate to intensively doing our research. We will not only know our enemies, we will even be able to think like them.

That first part is not hard to do. But knowing thyself is a lot harder to perform. The reasons are that we must face ourselves with total and complete honesty. We have to look at ourselves from a distance, as if some casual onlookers just spotted us at a remote position, and then we can critique our faults. We ought to know our weaknesses, and like other social-cultural groups in the United States, we do have glaring weaknesses.

Before pointing out America’s gun culture weaknesses, we first need to understand the political practices of hegemony, national popular movements, organic intellectuals, historical blocs, war of position, war of maneuver, and optimism of the will.

These political practices come from the writings of the Italian Communist intellectual, Antonio Gramsci, 1891-1937 AD. The Italian Fascists murdered the guy through criminal neglect in prison, but his political methods eventually transformed the Italian Communist Party into the most powerful Communist Party outside of the Warsaw Pact after WWII.

I would like to thank my Neo-Marxist tenured professors within the Amerikan university education system for teaching me these occult arts in manipulating political power. Many Americans wonder why Amerikan universities are such Left-wing madhouses. Administrator, six figure salary bureaucrats now run these scam stations, and they are more corrupt than most union boss officials. Most concernedly, our political enemies, inclusive of Amerikan university administrators, have been using these political tactics against us.

Gramsci took his political ideas from the combat tactics of WW I in Europe, with its mass mobilizations of drafted armies, trench warfare and technology efficiency in destroying human life. Gramsci applied such military tactics to the furtive arts of political alliances and to the political engagement of total defeat and no surrender.

Hegemony is simply the art of maintaining strong political alliances, often containing contradictory ideologies, transformed into a powerful force of action. Gramsci understood that hegemonic political action has the potential to block state hegemonic alliances, and even overthrow them. The Fasciste movement in 1920s Italy did just this.

American gun owners are a diverse group, such as hunters that like to eat fresh meat, sports shooters, self-defense trainers, gun store employees, military veterans, ex-cops, small business owners that run businesses in rough neighborhoods, trailer living people that like to shoot metal in the deserts.

We also have lots of other different people within our cultural salad, inclusive of lots of women, gays and lesbians, Muslim Americans, Anarchists, bikers, Jewish Americans, Atheists, Evangelical Christians, African-Americans, Latino-Americans, tattoo-piercing artists, sex workers and artist musicians. Yet, our political enemies often portray us as a fringe group of politically reactionary, overweight, older white men with genetically attached baseball caps and a bad wardrobe style.

National popular movements are political hegemonic movements that successfully become integrated within the national culture. Some good historical-ideological examples, within American political history, have represented: Jacksonian Democracy, Manifest Destiny, The Cause of the Southland-Dixieland, Abolitionism, The Gospel of Wealth, The Temperance-Prohibition Movement, Federalism, Constitutional Law, Environmentalism, Public School Education, The American Economic Dream, Racialism-Eugenics, The Black Liberation Struggle, Populism, The Big Stick Policy, The Labor Movement, Second Wave Feminism, Multiculturalism and Progressivism.

American gun culture holds profound and deep roots within American culture and history – and it will always stay that way. Our strong cultural power inside of the United States means that our political enemies are desperately trying to dislodge us from our privileged cultural position. Even with such a privileged cultural position, Gramsci learned from the aftermath of WW I that a strong cultural-political hegemonic alliance can dislodge and defeat the strongest national-cultural affinities. Like the human condition, culture changes and morphs into absurd newer creations.

Historical blocs are the different national popular movements that make up hegemonic political alliances. They are important because, in Gramsci’s own words, they are organic, meaning they spring from the cultural roots of the country. The political leaders are true citizens that represent the nation. Successful hegemonic alliances must have organic intellectuals as their public voices. American gun culture is definitely American. Our political-enemies however prefer to live in a more sophisticated culture, such as Europe and Australia.

The strategy for historical blocs is to transform themselves into national popular movements. Next, they must form powerful hegemonic blocs or counter-hegemonic blocs of political alliances in order to completely seize political power – and ultimately destroy their political enemies.

The first strategy is the War of Position, where the political movement uses deep political tactics against its ideological enemies, such as entrapments, faking mobilizations, incendiary language, incessant political agitation, continual propaganda outlay, and ultimately, incitement to violence.

All of these political tactics work in that they eventually weaken the will of the enemy to respond adequately, since the political opposition has to continually defend its positions, representing the War of Attrition. Eventually the beaten down opposition must either fortify itself, close off its gaps, and slowly decline and fall for final liquidation, or it must surrender gradually to the political onslaught, and ultimately become the tribute paying slaves of their new masters.

Gramsci referred to this end game for political victory, which is always violent, as the War of Maneuver. All successful hegemonic blocs must first utilize the War of Position, and then when achieving some cultural power in the nation, move into the War of Maneuver.

Ultimately, Gramsci encapsulated his most famous phrase, Pessimism of the Spirit; optimism of the Will. Gramsci insinuated through this statement that the Communist or Radical inside of the War of Position must reject any spiritual or religious morality.

Instead, the United Left has to replace such weak sentiments with a continual and untiring political struggle, or political warfare, against the Enemy. In fin, the revolutionaries have to seize political power in order to physically annihilate the Enemy. Modern history has shown the way in successfully using the Gramscian political process.

America’s Gun Culture is now facing such a War of Position – and our political enemies have learned the same Gramscian political tactics from their own Neo-Marxist tenured professors that they studied under. The Neo-Marxist tenured cowards have taught in the Amerikan university system for over a generation. Hopefully, we can now see where both our weaknesses and strengths lie.

As gun owners we must avoid contributing our writings to hard right-wing blogs that spout non-stop bigotry, often against the corporate media’s new hate targets: Muslims, and we should stop supporting pro-war/pro-US Military articles, which yell for more violence, revenge killings, bombings, genocide and mass murder.

While those right-wing political blogs will often attack the mainstream corporate media, they always echo chamber their 1984 Goldsteins of the Year, such as ‘Radical Islam.’ We don’t particularly like the outrageous fulminations coming from the ‘hoplophobes,’ so why do we collaborate with the rants of Islamophobes, homophobes or negrophobes?

Just because those political blogs often feature pro-gun articles does not mean they are our political allies. These hard right-wing blogs often belong to other hegemonic blocs. When we contribute to their rants and bile, we fall into our political enemies entrapment strategies.

The corporate mainstream media will once again picture us as ignorant, white racist, right-wing kooks. And always remember after the Sandy Hook Mythology Movement – many of those same hard right-wingers joined with their supposed progressive political enemies calling for gun restrictions.

We possess guns because we believe in the natural right to self-defense for all of humanity – including for our political enemies. We reject cowardice and stand upon the code of honor. We will never surrender to tyranny and we value our liberty.

This does not mean that we find guns sexy or even beautiful. Guns, like all weapons, are tools for extermination. We only use weapons as a last resort against any agitated wild animal, criminal attacker, or tyrannical invasion force, ready to physically harm us, our family, or our good friends. All of humanity has the right to defend themselves from violent attacks.

Most Americans are with us on this point, including many young urban hipsters, with pseudo-Leftist politics, who don’t know us, and who probably don’t any guns. Let us celebrate our diversity of differing political ideologies and backgrounds – yet united in our eternal virtues of courage, honor and gentleness.

The gun confiscators’ preferred method in dislodging America’s gun culture from the core of American cultural identity is through extreme, cowardly name calling. They commonly refer to us as terrorists, gun nuts and enablers of mass murder, and some have even called for outright, mass gun confiscation and snitching to the cops when we open carry. This is another war of position tactic.

We will simply reply to their calumny that they are gross hypocrites and lazy cowards: while they hate guns for us, they love guns for the cops and the military, which often target the poor, and the people who can’t fight back around the world. They rant for gun confiscations, yet they want the regular police officers and the enlisted military soldiers to bear the burdens of such a national confiscation, or having to detain open carriers.

Our most formidable weapons, which will carry out the defeat of their War of Position, is our knowledge of history. Educated Americans know about the Revolutionary War for Independence, the Civil War-War Between the States, John Brown’s Raid, WW I & II, and the Wild West Frontier. Guns entered all of those conflicts.

Tyrannical Laws never deserve the respect of a free people. Courage and Honor never comply, and never will we just follow orders. We didn’t come into this Earth to die as slaves.

Thomas Paine, the American radical wrote in his political pamphlet, The Crisis No. 1, (1776), These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph…”

We stand upon this truth. We remain within our hallowed ground, well inside American national culture. Whatever War of Positions the Enemy thrusts against us, we shall not surrender.

We respect honor, they do not. They are cowards, we are not. Never forget this.

Surviving among the cluster bombs of civilization, we have often surmised about our bizarre world as the same, absurd continuum from the beginning of time.

We cannot imagine our preposterous world without its job searches, employment hustles, apartments for rent, bank payment loans, security deposits, credit policies, police forces, prisons, schools, corporations, institutions, hospitals, houses of worship, advertising billboards, street scams, mafia-gang syndicates, criminal sprees, warfare and bombings, propaganda methods, State social control – and all the other criminal vices that plague and pester our everyday lives.

Within the sinister realm of ideologies, our modern world has seen the tumorous growth of outlandish ideological sects that have not only seized the modern State, but have also entered the realms of accepted science and common sense. Some ideological cabals have even taken the reins of social control through subtle hegemonic-state alliances over a short span of time. There are many such strange and nefarious stories from the darkened and hidden annals of human history.

The human mind, or the human brain, has represented one of the most mysterious areas for human research, and at the same time, one of the most desired regions for studying the evil arts of human social control. This explains the nauseating repetition of crap advertising and state-corporate propaganda, or ‘the news,’ found on most radio programs, television screens, and even when we click on to certain websites on our laptops.

Before there existed corporate media outlets under the direction of the political-economic elites, there were other proven methods in the discernment of mental operations. Those ancient methods considered the images, forms, inclusive of symbols, or languages, which seemed to constantly invade the human brain, meaning the intersecting lines and tapes of ego-centric, fantastic, conscious thoughts.

Some ancient religious ideologies preferred to tame the human brain and life actions through the methods of ethical self-systems, such as Confucianism, Jainism, Torah-Legalistic Judaism, Zoroastrianism, African Traditional Religions, Epicureanism, Daoism,  Sikhism and Stoicism. Other religious practices preferred to discipline the mind through the experiences of spiritual transcendence, such as Hinduism, Neo-Platonism, Pythagorean Religion, Neo-Egyptian Religion, Gnosticism, Christian Mysticism, Jewish Kabbala, and African Diaspora Religions. Only one religion was successful in combining both of these methods: Buddhism.

Buddhism denies the existence of the ego-self-soul-spirit bodies, and yet it allows for the Hindu belief in reincarnation-rebirth. It negates the complete idea of a controlling deity over human life, yet it also accepts the influence of malevolent spirits-illusions that infect our minds. Buddhism developed the only comprehensive, ancient method, or practice, in disciplining the human mind.

This mental discipline first emphasizes that we understand a simple truth: our thoughts are mental illusions, which create continual suffering in our lives, since our physical bodies also grow into old age, sickness and death. The second part of the method encourages the middle path of ethical behavior in avoidance of bad karma, or actions, words and thoughts, while engaging our will, or self-discipline, to meditate, or concentrate as much as possible, on our living actuality, such as breathing, walking, lying down, and other common life activities.

The spiritual method requires great self-discipline for the personal conquest of the monkey mind. This is the reason that Siddhartha Gautama, or the Buddha, formed the ‘sangha,’ or the monk practitioners of Buddhism with their shaved heads, brown, crimson, yellow robes, begging canisters and sandals.

About a thousand years later however, another religious mystic would create an even greater method for mind control, and in another sense, he became the first practitioner of modern psychobabble-psychology – although crap history leaves him out of the psycho history lesson.

His name was Iñigo de Loyola. He was a Spanish knight of the lower Basque nobility. In the early 1520s, after a momentous battle against the French in Pamplona, he severely injured his leg during the combat. While bedridden and under severe pain, he almost died from profuse bleeding. He managed to recover, and later began to read books on the heroic lives of the Saints.

How did the Saints manage to go so many days without eating and yet keep their composure, and how did they maintain their dignity and peace of mind even when under physical punishments, mental torments, or the duress of prison? Loyola ultimately got out of bed, but walked with a limp for the rest of his life. He could no longer live as a knight, so he imitated the heroic walks of the Saints.

He gave up his weapons and fine clothes at a shrine across his route in northern Spain, and then wandered barefoot, limping with a staff, and wore a coarse cloak with relic pieces and crosses, only carrying a dirty leather bag to help him along the way. Through this hard journey, during the 1520’s, he began to keep a rough journal.

This journal would later become his famous Spiritual Exercises during the 1530s when he began his university studies to become a priest. By the 1540s, he already had a group of devotees educated in the method of the Exercises. What was inside those exercises that made them so powerful?

The Spiritual Exercises were the first, modern psychotherapy self-help manuals in disciplining the mind. Through his complete change and turnaround, from killing off his old Spanish Knight self, and remaking himself into a Catholic Saint, he attained something that only a human animal could create: the death of the old self into a resurrected new, transformed other – all through simple mind exercises.

A priest who has already inducted himself into the Exercises leads the adept through the four to five-week process. First, the acolyte has to examine his or her life to find the faults, weaknesses or sins, which have kept the person from attaining true spiritual power, or mental freedom and peace.

After confessing and acknowledging one’s sins, and next, actively changing his or her habits in transforming the vices into virtues, the devotee later experiences the life of Christ, and especially his Passion on the Cross through understanding the hard process of personal, mind transformation.

The spiritual adviser or priest leads the adherent through controlled breath work, visualizations, vocal, repetitive prayers, and then participation in the Mass. After each session, he or she feels energized and more transformed, while the follower truly feels the power in belonging to the militant body of Christ. The most important part comes at the end of the session, where the votary learns the discernment of spirits.

The discernment of spirits implies understanding the thoughts, ideas, feelings, experiences, images and beliefs that come into his or her mind. Thoughts of doubt, laziness, sensual pleasure, guilt or nervousness represent demonic attacks, and they are let go, while thoughts or images that bring peace, spiritual rapture and joy come from the Holy Spirit. Once the adept successfully finishes the Exercises, he or she transforms into the disciplined believer-warrior. The worshiper has assumed control over his or her own ‘spiritual mind.’

The Order of Loyola, or the Company of Jesus, was also an authoritarian, military like Company under the direction of the Jesuit General. This mental practice was for the ‘greater glory of God,’ or really, the glory of the Catholic Church. Loyola wanted fanatical believers to defend the Church against the dangers of Protestant heresy, or against any non-Catholic belief systems across the globe.

Less than fifty years after the founding of the Company of Jesus, or the Jesuits, they had controlled most of the Catholic Universities in Europe. They also became the confessors to Catholic monarchs, built Catholic Schools across Europe and the American Continent, and had sent missionaries across the Earth in order to convert the heathens, while the Religious Wars had taken off across Europe. This religious order even became one of the wealthiest religious corporations in human history.

Modern Psychology, or Psychobabble, has used the same methods in recent history. ‘Social Workers’ have manipulated public opinion through the US corporate media, talk TV reality shows, such as ‘Dr. Phil’ and ‘Intervention.’ Psychologists have made strategic alliances with the State through the power of illegally imprisoning, ‘dangerous’ people, while holding full legal powers in giving testimonies in courts of law.

Psychiatrists have gained nefarious profits through their bogus psycho therapy sessions, murderous psycho surgeries and their legal rights in dealing brutal, psychoactive drugs to the unwilling. Psychology has become a respected area of scientific study in universities across the globe.

Since modern psychology’s founding, under the German physiologist Wilhelm Wundt during the late nineteenth-century, this ideology has dedicated itself to controlling and manipulating the human mind. Since its inception, it has been responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths across Europe and North America.

This ideology-pseudo science has mostly annihilated its victims through committing society’s weaker populations into asylums, mental hospitals and sanitariums. . The list of victims has included the autistic, the delusional-imaginative, the outspoken-rebellious, the open homosexuals, the excessively weird, the overly sensitive, the mentally deficient, the anorexic, the obsessive-compulsive, or the artistically strange.

Through its spurious research in ‘experimental’ behaviors, and crimes of staff brutality, neglect, restraints, tortures, psycho surgeries, and forced drugging of lethal pharmaceuticals, this ideological-institution has destroyed millions of lives.

Due to its powers as a respected science of social control, governments, militaries, police forces, corporations, schools and other dictatorial institutions across the societal spectrum, have used psychology as one of their preferred methods in dominance and destruction over others.

A short list of psychobabble’s historical crimes should suffice. The ideology and institution of Psychology collaborated with the Nazi Regime’s mass murder of mentally deficient people in the 1930s. Due to their sinister success in this psycho-operation, the Nazis went after Jews, Gypsies and other hated social groups during the 1940s.

The psychobabble pseudo science used the surgery-torture of lobotomies on outspoken-rebellious individuals from the 1930s-70s, such as Rosemary Kennedy, the actress Frances Farmer, the musician Josef Hassid, the painter Sigrid Hjerten, and thousands of other homosexuals, artists, non-conformists and other imaginative dreamers that seemed too weird. Most of the victims of lobotomies either died soon after or survived as incapacitated blobs.

In the 1970s, with lobotomies exposed as a form of torture and murder, and yet none of the ‘psycho doctors’ doing any prison time, psychobabble went on the offensive with its APA organization, the American Psychological Association, the Vatican of Psycho quackery.

Each successive year, this organization’s bible, Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, seems to grow exponentially. Even a nervous tic could put one on the list of disorders, and often the same psycho babble experts have suffered from the same neuroses. These ‘experts’ even had ‘homosexuality’ listed as one of the diseases to cure.

The Psycho mob soon made important ties with the federal, state and municipal governments in the United States, giving quacks full legal rights in stating court testimony and holding the legal rights to commit people involuntarily. Psychology had trumped the Bill of Rights to the US Constitution. All of this didn’t stop the tortures however, and so the Psycho punishers began to use the horrific practice of electroshock therapy, or giving voltage shocks to the brains of rebellious mental patients.

They also went on the offensive in the corporate sphere, helping to create the Biotech monolith in legally dealing the deadly, psychoactive drugs, such as Prozac, Lithium and Thorazine, which opened a flood gate of profits for both the Biotech companies and the Psycho practitioners. This practice also opened the floodgates to serial killers and mass shooters, which have become part of the diseased American cultural dynamic.

A few Psycho monsters had earlier collaborated with the US Government of Sociopaths in some very evil behavioral experiments during the 1940s and 50s. There was Project 4.1, which studied radiation effects on Marshall Island natives who had been victims of the US government’s use of nuclear testing nearby, and the Tuskegee Study, where US government doctor-thugs and psycho quacks injected syphilis into African-American men in the South in order to study the mental effects of the disease. And there was the most famous of all, Project MK-ULTRA, where the CIA and psycho experts heavily dosed US military personnel, patients in mental hospitals, prisoners and prostitutes, with LSD, in order to find a ‘truth serum.’ Some of those unsuspecting participants were never the same people again.

During the Satanic sacrifice-Child molestation scare of the 1980s in the United States, Psycho hacks were found in the corporate media defending the discredited use of ‘repressed testimonies’ in children, something not seen since the European witch trials of the 1640s.

Throughout this same decade of the 1980s, the Psychology Mafia also instituted a terrible scam on rebellious teenagers from white, middle class backgrounds. With the collusion of disreputable Insurance companies, both parents and psychologists could involuntarily commit rebellious adolescents into mental hospitals or special homes that tried to reform the defiant young people. The parents paid the Insurance companies, while the Insurance companies, mental clinics and Psycho gangs reaped the profits.

These same mental centers often recruited local thugs and weirdos to control the kids, while a few of those brutes even got away with legal murder through using restraints and tortures on the kids. This crime syndicate especially flourished in the state of Florida. The evil connivance of Psychobabble, the State and the Insurance Mafia, destroyed thousands of American families due to neurotic parents duped into imprisoning their own children.

Psychologists have collaborated with the US military through its ‘Psychological Operations,’ while sanctioning the use of torture and murder during its recent genocides in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Finally, I remember watching many of the Psychology graduate students when I was a doctoral student in history. Unfortunately, the art of history shared the same building complex as that quack ‘social science.’ Those Psychology doctoral students were often bizarre and anal, and a few of them were actual wing nuts. Were these the experts that were going to help the mentally afflicted? Psychology has even tried to capture of the art of history with its very own version of psychohistory!

Psychology-Psychobabble has been an integral state ideology through its arts of social control. There is nothing scientific about it. The Modern State and all tyrannical institutions, such as schools, cops and the military, adore it, while the Psycho leaders always eye newer and weaker victims to liquidate and murder.

We Anarchists know the truth about this disguised evil covered in the cloak of science and ‘normalcy.’ We must also fight their leaders as we fight the State, the cops, the rich elites, the powerful and the corporations. Ultimately, we should even refrain from using their terms and vocabulary, such as ‘psychopath, neurotic and schizo,’ which have become part of our common English vocabulary – and we should try to never see, speak with, or pay for a visit to one of those despicable fakes. Our Anarcho-spirit of liberty would engender a ‘mental illness’ and a forced imprisonment in one of their dungeons.

The Psychobabble Quack Cult is now the State’s and the Elite’s most trusted co-conspirator.

Only in our evil, modern world do native flora varieties arouse such enduring hatreds.

There still exist the sick hatreds against cannabis sativa, psilocybe semilanceata, erythroxylum coca, and there is one plant that receives the coveted prize in pure hate, nicotiana tabacum.

What is so strange about this hatred is that this same plant was integrally important for European colonialism and industrial capitalism in world history. European and Euro-American civilizations could not have progressed as they did without the native american gift of tobacco plantations, working slave labor to death, and then, the tobacco processing, factory work, building even larger ships, international marketing and sophisticated advertising.

How did such an enjoyable American plant associated with native community peace, and smoked through pastes, leaves, hand-made pipes and even chewed, transform into such a European commodity fetish under global capitalism?

Nicotiana tabacum was once a naturally growing, medicinal and spiritual plant for America’s native nations. European colonial invaders, investors, and murderers transformed the plant into an export drug of commodity for elite consumption under the inexhaustible profit-making schemes of capitalism.

Columbus and his invading men did not just murder, imprison and sell native slaves on the island of Cuba during the 1490s. They also spotted some, ‘naked’ Carib natives smoking a herb placed in some leaves. The scent was quite intoxicating and the natives seemed to enjoy the community based smoke. They did not inhale, yet the effect of the plant was calming after they had eaten some fresh, delicious food, and the herb even had a sensual effect on the smokers. The European imperial-colonial invaders found another gift.

They stole the native plants from the Caribbean islands and transported them to Europe. The Europeans took a peculiar liking to them. In the 1500s, the Portuguese colonial invaders in the Americas, called Bresil, began to cultivate the native crop. It seemed to grow well in sub-tropical and tropical climates. When introduced into European aristocratic, social-parasite gardens inside of the great landed estates, tobacco plants sprouted quite well. Tobacco could also grow in mild, temperate, oceanic climates. The European elites were on to something.

During the seventeenth-century, some monarchs, political thugs and tyrants began to hate the plant. King James Stuart of England, Sultan Ammurath IV of Ottoman Turkey, and Czar Mikhail Romanov of Russia, represented some of the anti-tobacco elite crowd, while Pope Urban VIII actually had a papal bull written against the plant in the 1640s.

Yet the European colonial empires of Britain, France, Spain, the Netherlands and Portugal had succumbed to the gods of capital. Each empire set up their own royal monopolies for the plant. The annoying question was where to grab the labor in order to work long hours in the hot sun: picking, drying, curing and transporting the leaves. The Europeans had made themselves the self-proclaimed owners of nicotine tabacum, so at first, they used local penal labor to work them to death in order to enrich the tobacco lords or planters. Where could one find a continual supply of slave labor?

An even greater economic windfall emerged through such an American cultivation – the theft of human chattel, or the kidnapping, murder, transporting and working to death of African slaves.

The Portuguese had first established their monopoly of the Blackened Brown Gold during the late sixteenth-century and early seventeenth-century, (about 1560-1660). Due to the importance of such American export plantation crops, such as tobacco, the English, Dutch, (the Netherlands), and the French established their own ‘African’ slave monopolies. A plant associated with community peace and enjoyment, took on the ominous tones of legal crime, kidnapping, imprisonment, mass murder, genocide and working people to death. Tobacco actually helped birth mercantile capitalism.

Mercantile Capitalism implied royal European controls of an export commodity, such as tobacco, sugar, coffee, tea, chocolate, salt and kidnapped African slaves, while it established permanent credit to slave plantation owners in order for them to purchase a continual supply of Africans and other penal slaves, (the European looking, or white ones). The American plantation-slave owners and European tobacco traders-ship investors made their profits through inflated price sales in the home or European metropolitan markets.

Meanwhile, European navies and missionaries tried to open greater markets for the American products in the Asian continents. Slowly, nicotine snuff and tobacco smoking had spread into the Islamic world culture, then Persia-Iran, the Indian sub-continent, Central Asia and ultimately into the Far East, China and even Japan.

In the eighteenth-century, the European tobacco manufacturers developed the smaller ‘cigarette’ varieties, and for those that preferred to chew, snuff boxes. All of this cigarette finery was for elite European consumption.

Elaborate, silver inlaid snuff boxes entered the world of fashion conscious, French aristocratic-parasite bums. In Britain, gentlemen established new cultural activities, fashions and spaces besides fencing, hunting, dances, card games, tea and reading – the smoking parlor with the smoking jacket.

A good tobacco smoke was always perfect after a good meal, with some intoxicating liquor or with some fine coffee. European grifters-Latin lovers, such as the Venetian, Giacomo Casanova, also took up the habit, and so tobacco grabbed some important cultural associations within European culture: sensuality, refinement, power and a coolness under pressure.

Most importantly, King Tobacco had changed the colonial-metropolitan relationships. The Scottish Tobacco Lords transformed the city of Glasgow into the premier tobacco import-export port. These same ‘lords’ would build their mini castles along Jamaica and Virginia Streets.

Those same streets had the infamous names of the most infernal, African slave killing centers in world history.

Virginia, once a colonial outpost of disease and hardship, had become the British Empire’s premier, tobacco plantation colony on the Tidewater during the 1700s. Is it any wonder that most of America’s revolutionary founders came from this proud plantation region made rich through the marvelous drug of tobacco?

During the same eighteenth-century, the Spanish colonial authorities had established the first urban factory for cigar-cigarette paper rolling and export packaging in Mexico City. Earlier, the Spanish had established the city of Seville as the premier processing center for cigars. For over a century in colonial Spanish America, and well before Metropolitan Europe, both men and women had been openly smoking tobacco cigarettes on the public streets. American fashion and prominence had come to Europe – mainly through the marvelous and medicinal herb of nicotiana tabacum.

Throughout the nineteenth-century, the 1800s, tobacco manufacturers had developed better technology in curing and rolling for three particular products: cigars, cigarettes, (blond and black versions), and chewable snuff.

The first tobacco companies consolidated themselves, while they competed with each other for the monopoly share of the smokers and chewers’ markets. This modern tobacco industry also encouraged the adulteration of tobacco through chemical engineering in order to hold their monopolies. Tobacco products even had molasses, rum, opium or honey mixed into the final product.

Tobacco eventually became part of modern, European and Euro-American cultural life. Royalty, lazy aristos, middle class-respectable clerks, and working class dock workers took up the smoking habit. The problem was that many of the men inhaled the nicotine fumes. Certain political-economic elites, Women Christian Temperance clubs and health workers noticed the persistent coughs of regular smokers. The modern anti-smoking movement had begun.

Meanwhile, tobacco shops and kiosks became one of the standard sights found on most city streets around the world, and where they also featured other items for sale, such as newspapers, books, shaving kits, pipes, rolling papers, pen knives, board games and playing cards.

In the twentieth-century, the 1900s, the tobacco industry transformed the world of advertising and mass marketing. A few tobacco monopolies had controlled the sale of ‘cigarette packs” and they made fortunes on the drug.

Smoking found associations with soldiers during World War I and for most wars afterwards. In the 1920s, cigarette companies targeted their advertising to the ‘new woman,’ thanks to the propaganda genius of the Austrian-American, Edward Bernays. Hollywood’s golden age featured most of their stars regularly smoking the sacred plant. Can anyone forget the famous pictures of Humphrey Bogart and James Dean without cigarettes dangling from their mouths?

While tobacco use seemed to sell exponentially – and especially in Asia, the anti-smoking forces mercilessly attacked the drug. Medical experts exposed the correlations between nicotine use and cancer, emphysema and other incurable maladies.

An anti-smoking coalition emerged. This motley prohibitionist group included family survivors of smokers who had died bad deaths, medical professionals, public education school administrators, and Christian religious groups,. Political-economic elites also joined their ranks, since they wanted better workers not taking so many smoking breaks, inclusive of less corporate health care costs.

Tobacco prohibitionists began to push for greater anti-smoking legislation. By the 1980s, they had succeeded in seizing the State.

In some urban cities in the United States, smoking is highly expensive, heavily taxed, and there are petty, minute federal, state and municipal laws that dictate where a person can or cannot smoke in public. Any street vendor trying to sell cheap cigarettes from another state, now has the felon tag of a ‘contrabandist,’ and can end up in prison or even have the cops murder him. The US government has a well-armed regulatory agency against tobacco, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, or the ATF, and so the US government has declared another war – this time against tobacco.

Yet, millions of young women, and especially models, smoke tobacco in order to help them not gain weight. Rock artists, punk musicians and other fringe artists regularly flaunt the burning cigarette in the mouth while they play their guitars brutally. Even some right-wing political activists have proudly taken the puff. The cigarette has its own sexual fetishes, and due to the US government’s war against it, now has associations with rebellion and freedom.

The history of nicotiana tabacum shows us once again, the absurdity of the human condition under civilization. A plant that once helped natives in the Americas ensure community peace and unions through the spiritual worlds, has undergone a terrible and irreversible chemical-medical-industrial-state regulated surgery.

European colonial elites had imposed this condition. They did this without the consent of the native victims of their genocides. The addictive desires for naked profits enabled another genocide against kidnapped Africans.

Most assiduously, certain corporations have claimed their own patents or imposed ‘ownership,’ on this natural plant, while they have mixed harmful chemicals into the industrial melting pot, creating a type of fuming poison. Finally, the contemporary State, ruled and administered by shameless sociopaths, constantly devises sinister means in punishing the working class smokers of the drug.

Tobacco was never the original enemy to stamp out. The sinister legacies of our European colonial settler states, once again, carry all the historical blame.
