How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

From Monroe to the Bush-Obama Doctrines, American KARMA is Long Overdue

Politics / US Politics Apr 18, 2014 - 12:04 PM GMT

Politics

I wait for the first domino to fall on Empire. Will it be a bond collapse? Another total market meltdown? A right-wing/NRA/neo-Confederate fight to the finish against "central government" (Washington) and subsequent martial law? A cathartic race war in New York or Chicago or Detroit or LA against police violence, corrupt politicians, angry white men, phony liberals and decades of exploitation by the middle and upper classes who salute themselves for electing the first African-American president while continuing to institutionalize racism and poverty?


Will it be from another BIG LIE told about Russia by obsequious state-controlled news editors to justify and incite a "Bomb Moscow Now!" irrational action by NATO that will set the world on fire? Or will it be from a final fatal blow to the "In God We Trust" almighty dollar by BRICS nations who pull into their orbit resource-rich kingdoms in the middle-East and Africa? Which one of these or another will push the first domino to fall upon the arrogant, "exceptional" ego of Empire?

The West's endorsement of neo-fascism in Ukraine is the historic turning point where America and the West enter into visible decline and eventual dissolution burying their long cherished democracies under trophies of greedy capital and imperial conquests. Left standing will be those nations unaligned with them; unaligned with their war machines and financial anarchic neoliberalism; survivors from their genocidal occupations and invasions; shielded from the darkness that will envelope their half of the world.

Simple physics explains how the sun must first set in the West in order to rise in the East. The sun is setting. Simple metaphysics explains "sowing and reaping", karma or "what goes around comes around". The scientific, technocratic, materialistic mind bereft of all transcendental awareness, gives no heed to how every human action produces an in-kind human reaction. That each action directed toward another is returned in-kind. Thusly, such a mind is convinced of its immunity from any laws set by both nature and any Divine.

America: from the Monroe Doctrine to the Bush-Obama Doctrine, a nation increasingly adrift from any ethical or moral anchor; militant; exploitive; materialistic; narcissistic. Prognosis: Prolonged massive karma. This is the law.

My sixty-five year old neighbor confessed she did not know where Beijing was. My first and second homemakers with scant education from local rural schools didn't know of any current crisis with Russia. One said that Chicago lay just north of Texas and California was to its left. My State Representative, a Democrat, is proud to have introduced a bill permitting military recruiters in public schools to wear uniforms. Such are the Americans I experience daily. In the 1960's people poured blood on ROTC records, burned draft cards, lost family and friends, went to jail, had skulls cracked by "love it or leave it" hard-hats and stood strong against the imperious Vietnam war machine instead of compiling new "friends" on FaceBook or thinking democracy amounts to writing scathing scatological comments under web articles. We fought for "liberty" and the Constitution too, Mr. and Mrs. Conservative. Ours was against capitalist exploitation, sexism, racism and materialism, and yours is thought to be through those things.

Today, the war machine doesn't exist for many in the lower classes and is blindly endorsed by many of the middle and upper classes with little forethought. Oligarchs, billionaire investors and hedge-fund vultures are raping whole peoples of their national wealth, but no media dare report them. The environmental catastrophes are ever threatening except to denying self-serving industrialists and corporations intent on pleasing market analysts who line CEO pockets will ill-gained returns from inflated stock prices. But no media dare challenge the excesses and abuses of capital. No, the evils lay in China, Russia and a Pope who is a Marxist, they say. Even ET's are shutting down nuclear missile silos (I hear). But to say so publicly will endanger your career if not your life (say the Pentagon and CIA). Those who are not lobotomized by totalitarian, psychotronic cyber worlds (particularly the "X", "Y" and "ME" generations) are either induced with toxins of hate and rage by Rush Limbaud and Fox News or are Obamatized into mental paralysis and fog by the liberal and progressive media. Both political parties are uniformly stricken with war fever, anger, revenge and compete as uber-nationalists.

A deep Depression is coming and war is its crueler diversion.

* * * *

Carrying a "big (nuclear) stick", America is the most dangerous force on the planet. Will it be stopped? Yes, it must be stopped if this planet is to survive.

How and when will the first domino fall? Only the angels know the answer.

If we did know, we wouldn't need to experience it.
