Man Sets Himself on Fire, The Madness of Crumbling Empires

Politics / US Politics Oct 07, 2013 - 10:33 AM GMT

By: Jack_D_Douglas

Politics

Setting one’s self on fire is a form of the ancient practice of “committing suicide on the head of someone” to blame them for something serious. The modern form of this as a political protest has been world famous since the Buddhist monk’s self-immolation in South Vietnam which helped to galvanize the Buddhist majority against the U.S. and the U.S.-Francophile puppet regime. That single act against the repressors of Buddhists, the majority of people, was a crucial trigger in the national revolt that led to the total defeat of the vast U.S. war machine even thought it cost the Vietnamese many millions of dead, maimed, wounded, MIA’s, and destroyed families and lives. [Gen. Giap, who led that total defeat of the U.S. by a poor peasant guerrilla army died yesterday at 102.


The WSJ said Giap led the Vietnamese in forcing the U.S. out. They and the die-hard American imperialists are still totally delusional about that total defeat and cannot call it what it was any more than they can rationally face the rapid disintegration of American culture and politics and finance and the economy today. The Union-Trib. in Navy Town USA, San Diego, called it a "defeat." I think most military people see the obvious defeat.]

The recent vast revolts of the Muslim World against the U.S. Imperial Puppets was triggered by a poor man setting himself on fire in Tunisia to protest government regulations and taxations that were killing him and his family.

The U.S. officials will call this self-immolation an act of “delusional madness” or maybe a “picnic lark,” anything to hide the obvious meanings. They did the same two days ago when they murdered the young mother rather than shooting out her tires when she was so terrified by the vast army of police chasing her and shooting at her that she sped off wildly until they murdered her.

They always say the same delusional things about any protests and the vast writings of America’s Best And Brightest Minds about the total corruption, degradation, mess of America today are all done by “Crazed Conspiratorialists.”

This is the Madness of Crumbling Empires. The imperial masses live in an air-tight world of delusions which blinds them to the crumbling foundations of their empires.

Americans will not at this point see any of this. Most of them are desperately trying to believe the Official, Let’s Pretend World of Media Delusions. They will go on pretending. The Media will go on lying. The Republicrats will go on screaming denials and playing their childish games and pretending their food fights can save America from the coming Implosion.

When the American Empire crumbles away enough to produce wide- spread hunger and immediate suffering, the American Dumbos will finally wake up and start serious protests against the American Madness at the top.
