The Impotent Rage of the American Voter



Let emotion pull you into a fight, and you’ve already lost. Your credibility dissipates. Your self-appointed moral authority collapses into ash. Before you take action against the opposition, especially if the action is drastic, you better fully understand who you’re up against. You better understand why you oppose this unjust entity. You better know how you specifically intend to resolve the conflict. If protesters don’t hand out pamphlets containing logical arguments based on verifiable evidence or defer to a website with such information, be wary of their true motives. If protesters use violence to force the public to hear their case, odds are that they never stood for anything substantial at all. Moreover, when you state your case, don’t expect to convince the judge by feeling justified and by thinking it should be apparent to everyone that you are justified. Right judgment will forever be impartial. Right judgment is carried out on a factual basis. You cannot postulate that, “The police are oppressive,” or “The Western world is oppressive,” or “The patriarchy is oppressive,” and expect to convince reasonable people with your hypothesis alone. This is why Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers failed terribly with their Weather Underground terrorist group. As with any ruthless, radicalized terrorists of the Islamic faith, violence won’t accomplish anything worthwhile. Instead of disseminating factual information in nothing but a peaceful fashion, they detonated not only corporate buildings but public ones, which the taxpayers paid to rebuild anyway. It’s never worth rallying behind the sheer idiocy of destroying our own neighborhoods to garner national attention.

No Saints Left In The Wild West

How alien would an incorruptible, unspoiled person be to this world? Envision the persecution this world would have in store for that person. After all, he or she would end our never ending parade, our festival of ignorance we desperately cling to. When the music abruptly stops and the commotion subsides, can we then see what we’ve become? The incorruptible person most assuredly won’t be you or me. This person won’t resemble any of the false images we may have of a perfect, enlightened being. No matter what delusions about the Earth many adhere to, this being certainly won’t be welcomed here. The perfect being stands as the embodiment of truth, and humans on this planet react to truth as they cope with grief: initially with denial, following with anger, bargaining, and depression and finally, if humans ever reach this phase, acceptance. Don’t we find it peculiar that the word we use for the sun rising in the East is a homonym of mourning? Did it dawn on us that Buddha’s first Noble Truth, that life is suffering, was known before we even realized it? The truth illuminates. The truth is that wild instincts can never be fully extinguished. Despite any suffocating, domineering society, this world cannot be completely orderly and predictable. We won’t find ourselves in a sterile, pristine, and static white room, and we cannot reach the last door of exploration. The study of the wild west will forever remain incomplete.

Philanthropy As Means Of Control

John D. Rockefeller

Accept money from the mafia and you prove two characteristics about yourself. First, a price tag sticks to your forehead. Second, you’ve sold your sovereignty to a volatile entity, a metastasizing cancer engulfing the globe. This entity is legion. It’s highly compartmentalized and modeled after Machiavellian lust for power. The legion may appear far removed from us. Fortunately, we don’t personally do business with a traditional crime syndicate. We may very well believe we are safe, but this belief is a mistake. Even though the crime syndicate didn’t attempt to buy us personally, either ensuring their survival or expanding their illegal enterprise, influential people in both spheres of government and finance made the sale for us. Once purchased, the cabal seized control of education, medicine and in general, the means of all scientific and historical inquiry. The masses don’t recognize 21st Century Mafia, because they don’t brandish Tommy Guns. They also don’t identify themselves with street gang related insignia. This mafia, shrouded in mystery, defines itself by the method of their operation: Killing with kindness. The Rockefeller Foundation, The Carnegie Corporation, and the Ford Foundation worked in concert to fund education and medicine and thereby, control it. They sought to pump out not only dehumanized workers with a high tolerance of bureaucracy and a diminished problem solving ability but allopathic physicians with limited training in boosting the body’s natural defense mechanisms and huge incentives to prescribe petroleum based medicine.

Labelling: Not A Valid Counterargument

Scoffing and muttering, “Racist,” does not invalidate the words of the messenger. Observing that African Americans represent the majority in American prisons isn’t racist just as observing the abnormally large population of Ashkenazi Jews in show business isn’t antisemitic. Unfortunately, this rebuttal appears to work on people, even those who are cognizant of logical fallacies. Although knowledge of logical fallacies is incredibly useful, it’s not absolutely necessary. We don’t need college degrees to spot illogical arguments. We don’t even need to be familiar with the words ad hominem to deduce that insulting the messenger does not discredit the message. Even charging the messenger with jealousy is a poor attempt at disproving his or her claims. While simultaneously boosting the indicters’ egos, this overworn tactic, used by the upper class, gains no legitimate traction in an argument. Regardless of that fact, what have we become? We settle debates by sniveling, moaning, and shrieking, “You’re just jealous!” or “You’re an antisemite!” Is it antisemitic to point out that Israel has a history of spying on America and that Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, knew that Jonathan Pollard was betraying the United States? Is it antisemitic to make known the fact that Irgun, an Israeli terrorist group, bombed the King David Hotel? Logically speaking, even if the messenger was a jealous bigot, truth can still spring forth from his or her mouth. Labeling the truth tellers to silence and bully them demonstrates that the powerful have closed the topic from an open and honest discussion.

Zionists And Their GOP Puppets

We know who holds legitimate power by the way political candidates mention their names. Israel holds such clout over the political clowns vying for our votes. Specifically within the religious right, there’s an outspoken alliance with Israel, and the partnership has been sublimely profitable for them. Sheldon Adelson, in particular, is vehemently pro Israel. He rewards any talk of commitment to Israel, but he’s not alone. Ashkenazi Jews have many wealthy bankers and businessmen within their ranks waiting to back a politician who’s doting on Israel. Extra credit also involves competing in their fierce loyalty to the Zionist nation as Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Hillary Clinton have done. Sheldon Adelson acts on this shameless self-interest, which implies the Zionist country’s priority over America.

Giving The Oligarchs The Benefit Of The Doubt

What if the rich and powerful want the best for humanity? Not outside the realm of possibility, but this seems incredibly unlikely. Of course, I cannot prove it objectively. What is certain is that the words ‘rich’ and ‘wealthy’ confuse too many us. To clarify, when mentioning the ‘rich’ and ‘powerful,’ I’m referring to the network of family dynasties. Any name such as Morgan, Carnegie, Harriman, or reaching further back in history, Habsburg and the Medici make any physicians, lawyers, and stock traders look like penniless vagabonds. Real wealth is owned by the people who don’t have the slightest concern over money. If they wanted more, they’d create it out of nothing with literally zero effort on their behalf. I can’t imagine, with this all-encompassing power, knowing the consequences of my decisions span the entire globe, what I would do. I can’t imagine what kind of secretive information this position would expose me to.

Nothing New Under The Sun

Good people arouse suspicion in government agencies. Defend the rights of vulnerable people and you inevitably put a dent in the profits of powerful people. Woe is the one who threatens the king’s lifestyle. Our corrupt kings leverage agencies. Agencies such as the ATF, TSA, NSA, etcetera, are used to either recoup their losses or swiftly stamp out any threat to their gains no matter what the cost. Jesus Christ, on the other hand, allied himself with the people. He refused to be held hostage to the money changers and taught that succumbing to the lure of power and hedonism only results in cyclical self-deception and needless suffering. Unfortunately, that sickness defines this world, and Jesus never claimed this place as His kingdom. If He repeatedly reincarnated into a human body, the wealthiest among us would nonchalantly kill Him every time. Respect for power and hedonism and respect for humanity and life are mutually exclusive. Therefore, we must make this choice, and we must make it count. We must also recognize the possibility of a common thread running through each of our lives. When we notice either encoded or glaring patterns or phenomena that we intuitively feel isn’t right, we’ve probably caught glimpses of this thread. As children, we’re taught that the ghosts of history endured tumultuous wars and callous violence, but haven’t we noticed this story remains the same? Today, the names have changed. Tomorrow, the names will change yet again, but does the story and the plot ever veer off course? What would it take for humanity to pay off its karmic debt? Not only the powerful, we too tuck bloody weapons under our coats while stretching out empty palms. There is a commonality behind these forces of death and destruction that torments humanity.

The Powerful Have Us By The Throat

The poor and middle class need opportunity, not a patronizing crutch to rely on. They don’t need an overprotective nanny, and definitely not a societal shunning. Yet this is what both sides of the political spectrum give. As usual, partisan politics exacerbates the problem. The left appears to treat the symptoms of what ails the poor and middle class—underemployment and unemployment. The left wants to give these downtrodden individuals something that’s been depreciating in value since the removal of the gold standard—money. Unsurprisingly, the right’s motives are equally dubious. The right wants to abandon their fellow downtrodden citizens as if they’re coyotes left to fend for themselves in cities and towns that cannot provide honest work for everyone. If the downtrodden people were an infected limb, the left would dispense pain medication, and the right would indiscriminately snip chunks of flesh. Taking the analogy further, the right may even want to completely sever the infected limb. Even if the right were to commit such an atrocious act as to murder the poor and middle class, the infection will remain. A new poor and middle class will emerge after the harrowing elimination. This new vulnerable subset of society will fulfill the role of the old exploited classes, the proletariat. The vulnerable classes have little control. The poor and middle class did not set the economic systems in place. The poor and middle class have no authority over the guided or misguided fluctuations that constitute the global economy. In other words, the lower classes are not the source of the economic infection.
