Mother, do we consider they’ll dump a bomb?
Mother, do we consider they’ll like this song?
Mother, do we consider they’ll try to mangle my balls?
Mother, should we build a wall?
Mother, should we run for president?
Mother, should we trust a government?
Mother, will they put me in a banishment line?
Is it usually a rubbish of time?
The lyrics to Mother had both a verbatim and incongruous definition for Roger Waters. He was literally describing his overprotective singular mom (his father was killed in World War II) building walls to strengthen him from a outward world. The incongruous definition is Big Mother promulgation a boys off to fight and regulating fear to control and manipulate a masses. At a time he wrote this aria in 1979, a Soviet Union was suspicion to be during a rise of appetite and a Berlin Wall represented a range between good and evil. Nuclear fight was still a appearing fear. Waters has always had a low perspective of sum states and institutions (English schools). Having seen his Wall Tour opening this past summer during Citizens Bank Park with a opposite throng of 40,000, trimming in age from comparison adults to teenagers, it seems this aria has gained new meaning. He sang a duet with himself from 1980 projected on a Wall and when he sang a lyric, “Mother, should we trust a government?” a whole track responded in unanimity – NO!!! This suggested a law that is not available to be discussed by a corporate mainstream media behaving as a spokesman for a statute class. A flourishing multitude of adults in this republic does not trust a government. This is unequivocally keen on their part.
In partial one of this dual partial array – Hey You – we examined how an invisible supervision of wealthy, appetite inspired organisation have employed a promotion techniques of Edward Bernays and lured a American people into a narcissistic, techno-gadget, debt formed servitude. Over a final one hundred years they have combined a sum state built on egotism, element goods, and fulfilling a desires by Wall Street peddled debt and mass consumerism. It has been an impossibly effective form of control that has assured a masses to adore their servitude. The statute oligarchs rightly chose a painless, entertainment saturated, soothing autocracy of Huxley’s Brave New World over a fearful, pain inflicting, notice state, residence of horrors minute in Orwell’s 1984.
“A unequivocally fit sum state would be one in that a almighty executive of domestic bosses and their army of managers control a race of slaves who do not have to be coerced, given they adore their servitude.” – Aldous Huxley – Brave New World
The sinful investiture of a Federal Reserve in 1913, launch of gratification programs in a 1930s, enlargement of a desert state in a 1960s, origination of a credit label in 1970, mass media selling propaganda, and a arrangement of an sovereignty of debt laid a substructure for a multitude formed on triviality, egotism, irrelevance and mass delusion. The unwavering strategy of a habits and opinions of a masses by an invisible supervision of absolute organisation regulating media promotion and easy to entrance consumer credit has reached a mathematical limit. The oligarchs built a multitude contingent on exponential growth. This unsustainable antecedent began to uncover signs of aria in a 1990s. The absolute interests have been flourishing ever some-more unfortunate and blatantly apparent in their looting and pillaging of a debt magisterial physique of a country. They used their control of a domestic complement to dissolution Glass-Steagall, permitting a Wall Street banking gang to turn Too Big to Control. The oligarch puppets during a Wall Street tranquil Federal Reserve did a behest of their masters by shortening seductiveness rates and expanding a income supply to emanate dual epic bubbles.
The Dot.com burble was combined by Wall Street utilizing hype and misinformation to fleece millions into desiring we had entered a new paradigm. The usually people who got abounding were a Wall Street hucksters, shysters and shills.
When a Dot.com burble burst, Alan Greenspan came to a rescue, during a propelling of Nobel esteem personality Paul Krugman, by formulating a largest landowner done burble in a story of a world. The multiple of excessively low debt rates, finish miss of regulatory slip by a Federal Reserve, control rascal committed by a Wall Street banks, and shopping frenzy influenced adult by a corporate MSM and NAR, led to a biggest financial fall given 1929.
The white collared psychopathic criminals on Wall Street reaped billions in profits, paid themselves millions in bonuses, and cost taxpayers trillions when it all blew adult in 2008. The statute chosen have combined $6 trillion to a inhabitant debt and their executive landowner has combined another $2 trillion to a ultimate tab, while providing giveaway income to their Wall Street bank owners. They comprehend their efforts to restart a exponential enlargement engine have failed. They gutted a prolific production formed mercantile complement by shipping a blue collar jobs abroad to Chinese worker labor facilities, transposed workers with machines, wild expenditure with sum placement of high seductiveness debt, and authorised conglomerates to expostulate tiny business owners out of business with their inexpensive unfamiliar sourced goods, all in a name of capitalism. The devise worked so good that genuine salary haven’t risen in 40 years, acceleration has damaged a purchasing appetite of a core class, 47.7 million people are contingent on food stamps to survive, and a masses can’t even means a inexpensive worker labor constructed trinkets anymore. There is too tiny cash, too few jobs, too many debt, too many takers, too few makers, too many bankers, too many delusion, and too few resources to means a unsustainable. We have entered a finish stages of a voracious locust swarm. The fields have been nude barren.
When a organisation in fume filled bedrooms satisfied their soothing autocracy was losing a hold on a oblivious, submissive, egoistical, dreaming masses, they began proviso dual of their bid to keep their wealth, appetite and control. They began to hospital Orwellian measures to strike fear into a populace. Their apparition of control is dissipating and they are resorting to force in sequence to say hegemony. It began with a clear thoroughfare of a Orwellian Patriot Act one month after 9/11. Did a corporate media doubt how a 363 page all-encompassing enlargement of troops state appetite was combined in a few weeks after 9/11 and upheld by Oct 26? They did not. The check was pre-written and prepared for benefaction doing when a time was right. The Orwellian chronicle of America was launched.
“If a beliefs had been a lie, afterwards they are not heroes and gods on earth, yet monsters and criminals, and their life has been self-indulgent and meaningless, yet stress and honor. And that is a credit trap. It is a incentive for a leaders to keep doubling down in a wish of a win, until lassitude and collapse.” – Jesse
Obedience to Authority
“Ordinary people, simply doing their jobs, and yet any sold feeling on their part, can turn agents in a terrible mortal process. Moreover, even when a mortal effects of their work turn plainly transparent and they are asked to lift out actions exclusive with elemental standards of morality, comparatively few people have a resources indispensable to conflict authority.” - Stanley Milgram – Obediance to Authority
Just as Edward Bernays knew a uncontrolled masses could be manipulated by promotion and molded to trust whatever a tiny organisation of intellectually higher organisation wanted them to believe, conditioning regulating fear and peremptory methods have also been polished by a statute class. Doctor Stanley Milgram unwittingly supposing a oligarchs with acknowledgment a normal citizen could be systematic to do anything by invoking imagination and management over their subjects. Milgram started his experiments in 1961, shortly after a hearing of a World War II rapist Adolph Eichmann had begun. Eichmann’s invulnerability that he was simply following orders when he exterminated millions of Jews roused Milgram’s interest. How could millions of Germans attend and acquit such genocide? Milgram’s contrast suggested that it could have been that a millions of accomplices were merely following orders, notwithstanding violating their deepest dignified beliefs.
Writer Kendra Cherry describes a experiment:
The participants in a Milgram examination were 40 organisation recruited regulating journal ads. Milgram grown an intimidating startle generator, with startle levels starting during 30 volts and augmenting in 15-volt increments all a approach adult to 450 volts. The many switches were labeled with terms including “slight shock,” “moderate shock” and “danger: serious shock.” The final dual switches were labeled simply with an meaningful “XXX.”
Each member took a purpose of a “teacher” who would afterwards broach a startle to a “student” each time an improper answer was produced. While a member believed that he was delivering genuine shocks to a student, a tyro was indeed a combine in a examination who was simply sanctimonious to be shocked.
As a examination progressed, a member would hear a tyro beg to be expelled or even protest about a heart condition. Once a 300-volt turn had been reached, a tyro banged on a wall and demanded to be released. Beyond this point, a tyro became totally wordless and refused to answer any some-more questions. The experimenter afterwards prepared a member to yield this overpower as an improper response and broach a serve shock.
Most participants asked a experimenter either they should continue. The experimenter released a array of commands to poke a member along:
The turn of startle that a member was peaceful to broach was used as a magnitude of obedience. How distant do we consider that many participants were peaceful to go? When Milgram acted this doubt to a organisation of Yale University students, it was expected that no some-more than 3 out of 100 participants would broach a limit shock. In reality, 65% of a participants in Milgram’s investigate delivered a limit shocks.
Of a 40 participants in a study, 26 delivered a limit shocks while 14 stopped before reaching a tip levels. It is vicious to note that many of a subjects became intensely agitated, distraught and indignant during a experimenter. Yet they continued to follow orders all a approach to a end. Why did so many of a participants in this examination perform a clearly sadistic act on a instruction of an management figure? According to Milgram, there are a series of situational factors that can explain such high levels of obedience:
The American people have been participants in their unequivocally possess Milgram examination being conducted by their supervision given 9/11. Since a thoroughfare of a Patriot Act, a supervision continues to direct that a adults boost a voltage in a name of security. Since 2001, a Orwellian measures have included:
- Warrantless domestic surveillance.
- The ability to hunt write calls, emails, financial matters generally involving unfamiliar individuals, and medical annals for people who are “suspected” of endangering a country.
- Color coded risk levels designed to keep adults aroused of self-existent terrorists.
- Pre-emptive advance of unfamiliar countries.
- Committing U.S. army to fight yet a stipulation of fight by Congress as mandated in a U.S. Constitution.
- Assassination of people on presidential kill lists.
- Extermination of “suspected” enemies by predator drones.
- Camera systems monitoring a movements of Americans in cites and streets opposite a United States.
- Torture of detainees in camps outward of a United States.
- The management to indefinitely catch America adults yet trial.
- Executive orders giving a President a ability to unilaterally negligence a U.S. Constitution and take control of private industries.
- Use of drones to guard a activities of American citizens.
- Allowing a unequivocally bankers that damaged a worldwide mercantile complement to extort a American taxpayers into handing them $700 billion.
- Not prosecuting one Wall Street rapist after a largest Ponzi control rascal in a story of a world.
- Cameras and listening inclination on open movement and other open locations.
- Military exercises conducted in U.S. cities in sequence to condition a masses.
- Attempts to control and bury a internet by a introduction of a SOPA bill.
- The use of comfortless mass murders by mentally bad immature organisation on psychotropic drugs to negligence a 2nd Amendment and lame American citizens.
- TSA thugs molesting tiny aged ladies and immature children to benumb adults to gestapo like strategy and yield them like criminals.
- Government partnering with Facebook, Apple and other corporate entities to monitor, censor, and news a activities of adults to a authorities.
- The use of open schools to learn children what to consider rather than how to think. Thought control is vicious to an bulletin of gripping a masses aroused and pliable.
- Government agencies (FBI, ATF) formulating militant plots, luring immature dupes into a plots, providing feign explosives, and afterwards announcing with good pushing they have foiled a militant plot.
- “See something, Say something” supervision media debate designed to make adults paranoid and fearful.
Just as Milgram pondered how a German people could follow a orders of those in management to massacre millions, one contingency contemplate how a American people have authorised those in appetite to frame us of a Constitutional freedoms and liberties in a name of reserve and security. They have conditioned a masses to passively accept their predestine by utilizing fear, peremptory measures, suspicion control, and propaganda. Human beings never change. They have been driven by emotions via story – fear, greed, adore and hate. There will always be psychopathic organisation who find wealth, power, excellence and control. It happened during a decrease of a Roman Empire and it is function currently during a decrease of a American Empire.
“A intolerable crime was committed on a unethical commencement of few individuals, with a blessing of more, and amid a pacifist capitulation of all.” – Tacitus
Big Brother is Watching You
“Now we will tell we a answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks appetite wholly for a possess sake. We are not meddlesome in a good of others; we are meddlesome usually in power, pristine power. What pristine appetite means we will know presently. We are opposite from a oligarchies of a past in that we know what we are doing. All a others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and a Russian Communists came unequivocally tighten to us in their methods, yet they never had a bravery to commend their possess motives. They pretended, maybe they even believed, that they had seized appetite unwillingly and for a singular time, and that usually around a dilemma there lay a bliss where tellurian beings would be giveaway and equal. We are not like that. We know what no one ever seizes appetite with a goal of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not settle a harm in sequence to guarantee a revolution; one creates a series in sequence to settle a dictatorship. The intent of harm is persecution. The intent of woe is torture. The intent of appetite is power. Now we start to know me.” – George Orwell – 1984
What a normal chairman can’t seem to routine by their supervision open propagandize prepared non-critical meditative smarts is that there are indeed a tiny organisation of bankers, politicians, corporate executives, media magnets, and murky billionaires who call a shots in this country. They consecrate Bernays’ invisible government, run a show, mold a minds, form a opinions, advise a ideas, and emanate a existence for a masses given they trust they are intellectually superior. The left/right and Democrat/Republican conflict is a designed diversion for a masses. The republic has devolved into a corporate nazi warfare/welfare state. We are clearly relocating in a instruction of Orwell’s state in that supervision monitors and controls each aspect of tellurian life to a border that even carrying a unfriendly suspicion will be opposite a law. The longer this is authorised to swell a some-more expected any bid to conflict like Winston Smith will be met with heartless measures.
The parallels to Orwell dystopian calamity state grow by a day. Those in control use record to torpedo Americans with psychological inducements designed to overcome a mind’s capability for unconstrained thought. In Orwell’s 1984 a hulk telescreen in each citizen’s room blasts a consistent tide of promotion designed to make a failures and shortcomings of a Party seem to be jubilant successes. In Obama’s 2013 a 72 in. Chinese done HDTVs in each McMansion blasts a consistent tide of promotion designed to make a zombie-like occupants buy trinkets and gadgets with a skinny square of cosmetic and creates a failures in Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt and Libya seem to be jubilant successes. Our corporate/fascist celebration uses their control over a media summary to train and control a open mind by promotion and repeated messaging. In Orwell’s world, a Party undermines family structure by inducting children into an classification called a Junior Spies, that brainwashes and encourages them to view on their relatives and news any instance of disloyalty to a Party. In a universe children are indoctrinated in supervision run open schools that fill their smarts with supervision done history, amicable engineering claptrap and what they should think, rather than how to think. The Orwellian Department of Homeland Security (Thought Police) instructs them to news anyone they consider is questionable with their “See something, Say something” campaign. Children are “encouraged” to re-educate their relatives about immature appetite and tellurian warming. Corporations account schools to publicize their products within a hallways of learning. The outputs of this corporate/fascist partnership are non-critical thinking, functionally illiterate, willfully ignorant Proles who heed a Party and devour products as instructed.
In Orwell’s 1984 a Party keeps a race in a ubiquitous state of lassitude by creation them work prolonged exhausting hours during supervision run agencies. This was designed to keep them from meditative or carrying a appetite to resist. About one in 6 workers work for a supervision in a United States, with a estimable apportionment of private jobs contingent on supervision largesse. The loyal eminence in a multitude can be seen in a income levels over decades of a possess Inner Party, Outer Party and Proles.
The supervision prepared masses were intentionally not taught about a impact of Federal Reserve combined acceleration on their lives. Even regulating a supervision manipulated CPI, a genuine domicile incomes of a masses have hardly risen in a final forty 5 years. Using a loyal magnitude of inflation, a genuine domicile incomes of a normal family have fallen. In addition, before to a 1980s those domicile incomes were primarily supposing with one primogenitor operative and a other lifting a children. Today a immeasurable infancy of households need both relatives to work in sequence to usually step water. Child rearing was substituted to a state and relatives have been kept in a consistent state of exhaustion, like hamsters in a enclosure on a spinning wheel. Household income was transposed by credit label debt, debt debt, automobile debt, and tyro loan debt peddled by a unequivocally possess Inner Party (Wall Street bankers). The Inner Party members have seen their incomes soar over a final 4 decades. This was not an accident.
As those during a tip amass an ever augmenting commission of a inhabitant wealth, while consolidating their appetite by ever some-more worldly use of record for surveillance, warfare, and financial theft; civic spoil and hurtful spreads opposite a land. Totalitarian regimes are ferociously effective during augmenting their possess appetite and wretchedly amateurish during providing for their citizens. Just as a London in Orwell’s dystopian universe was a decrepit, outline city in that buildings were crumbling, amenities such as elevators never worked, and basis such as electricity and plumbing were awfully undependable, a civic murdering fields that are home to tens of millions in a United States are dangerous, disintegrating, sacred out carcasses of once abounding metropolises. Hunger, poverty, exploding infrastructure, and assault are a earmarks of multitude for a Proles. True stagnation exceeds 20%, with girl and minority stagnation surpassing 40%. There are 47.7 million Americans subsisting on food stamps (program administered by JP Morgan), accounting for 20% of all a households in a country.
The incompetency and mismanagement by a sum statute physique is clear for all to see, as bridges collapse, H2O mains burst, gas lines explode, mass movement shuts down and structures mellow due to decades of neglect. The priorities of those in appetite are clearly manifest as they spend trillions on weapons used to conflict emperor countries, discharge billions in “aid” to unfamiliar dictators, yield trillions to a rapist banking gang on Wall Street, and persevere billions to record designed to guard and control their citizens. Our whole rotting, fetid, bloated, hurtful multitude has about reached a limits. It is usually a matter of time until it implodes like a former Soviet Union.
“Diminishing earnings of ever-increasing complexity addressed with ever-more layers of complexity, larded with systematic fibbing formed on mystifying, ambiguous jargon, authorised statistical misreporting, rapist cronyism, and scuttling of a order of law. In short, a markets have been taken over in outcome by a rapist racketeering syndicate. In doing this, so many resilience has been private from these marketplace structures that they are riddled with rot, like a palace filthy with carpenter ants.” – Jim Kunstler
We Have Always Been during War with Eastasia
Hush now baby, baby, don’t we cry.
Mamma’s gonna make all of your nightmares come true,
Mamma’s gonna put all of her fears into you,
Mamma’s gonna keep we right here, underneath her wing.
She won’t let we fly, yet she competence let we sing,
Mamma’s gonna keep baby friendly and warm.
Oooh babe, Oooh babe, Oooh babe,
Of march Mamma’s gonna assistance build a wall.
The concepts of Doublethink and Newspeak are alive and good in a increasingly Orwellian society. The large long-term debate of large-scale psychological manipulation, described in fact by Edward Bernays in 1928, has succeeded in violation down a ability for eccentric suspicion by a masses. Those in control of a media have molded a minds of millions to trust anything a supervision tells them, even while possessing information that runs opposite to what they are being told. On a eve of a advance of Iraq, a supervision and their media promotion mouthpieces had assured 69% of a American open that Saddam Hussein was concerned in a 9/11 attacks, even yet there wasn’t a fragment of justification to support that claim. The storyline of Iraqi soldiers murdering Kuwaiti babies in their incubators during a initial Gulf War was another instance of promotion designed to manipulate open opinion. By determining a media message, those in appetite control a benefaction and can manipulate a past. The supervision controls a curriculum in open schools and writes a story to heed to whatever storyline that supports their agenda. With 20% of a adult race in this republic functionally illiterate, a plan of ideas or vicious suspicion is probably unfit for these people. This is accurately what is preferred by a statute class.
The vast instance of Doublethink in Orwell’s 1984 occurs during a Hate Week rally. The Party shifts a tactful allegiance, so a republic it has been during fight with unexpected becomes a fan (Eurasia), and a former fan becomes a new rivalry (Eastasia). When a Party orator unexpected changes a republic he refers to as an rivalry in a core of his speech, a throng accepts his difference immediately, and is ashamed to find that it has done a wrong signs for a event. The American people have been automatic to accept a same proof from a leaders. Saddam Hussein was a fan when he was fighting a rivalry Iran, who had been a fan ever given we had dismissed their democratically inaugurated personality in a 1950s. Then he became a rivalry for regulating weapons of mass destruction, supposing to him by a U.S., on his possess people and melancholy a control over Middle Eastern oil. Osama bin Laden was a fan when he was fighting a mortal enemy, a Soviet Union. Then he became a mortal rivalry given we refused to leave Saudi Arabia after a initial Gulf War. Ghadafi was a sworn rivalry after floating adult an airliner filled with Americans, until he helped us after 9/11 and became an ally. Then he became an rivalry again for fighting to say his dictatorship. Mubarak was an fan for decades as we supposing him billions in troops hardware so he could brutally say control. Then he became an rivalry when we motionless he was no longer of use. Do we get a picture?
Do we see any parallels between Orwell’s Ministry of Plenty (oversees mercantile shortages); a Ministry of Peace (wages war); a Ministry of Truth (conducts promotion and chronological revisionism); and a Ministry of Love (the core of a Party’s operations of woe and punishment) and a Department of Agriculture, Department of Defense, Department of Education, and Department of Homeland Security?
“In a age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are domestic issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, loathing and schizophrenia. The unequivocally judgment of design law is vanishing out of a world. Lies will pass into history.” – George Orwell
Should we Trust a Government?
So a oligarchs have employed all a plays in Huxley’s playbook and are half approach by Orwell’s playbook, yet they are fast losing their credit as a tiny minority of vicious meditative people is regulating a internet to widespread a law and form phyles with like-minded adults with identical values formed on autocracy and freedom. The domestic complement is damaged over correct as $2 billion was spent during this final “election” to say a standing quo. The looting and pillaging of a core category continues, while a bad are kept controlled, sedated and deferential by entitlements, debt, drugs and prisons. The financial complement is succumbing to a plateau of debt that have been amassed perplexing to keep a diversion going. In a final 10 years worldwide sum credit marketplace debt, on change sheets, emperor obligations, corporate debt, domicile debt – has grown from $80 trillion to usually over $200 trillion. U.S. unfunded liabilities committed to by a politician parasites that pass for a member transcend $200 trillion. There are $1.2 quadrillion of companion derivatives superb in a universe today, 20 times a distance of a worldwide economy. The accumulation of worldwide debt, aging grown republic populations, lassitude of resources, incessant war, financial rascal and prevalent crime are going to lead to a fall of epic proportions. It might not occur in 2013, yet it will occur within a subsequent 5 years. Jesse explains since a standing quo will never relinquish their power, illegally acquired resources and control yet a fight:
“A credit trap is a condition wherein a financial, domestic and informational functions of a multitude have been compromised by crime and fraud, so that a care can't effectively reform, or even overtly address, a problems of that complement yet impairing and implicating, during slightest incidentally, a extended swath of a appetite structure, including them. The standing quo tolerates a crime and a rascal given they have profited during slightest indirectly from it, and would like to continue to do so. Even a incentive to remodel within a appetite structure is receptive to several forms of soothing extort and duress by a complement that maintains and rewards.
And so a unsuccessful process and a support complement turn self-sustaining, prolonged after it is seen by design observers to have failed. In a disaster it is counterproductive, and an snag to liberation in a genuine economy. Admitting disaster is not an choice for a suspicion leaders who accept their appetite from that system. The smoothness of a constructional hierarchy contingency therefore be confirmed during all costs, even to a indicate of apropos a painfully apparent hypocrisy.”
The people of this republic contingency recover a clarity of shortcoming for their lives and a lives of destiny generations. Enough people need to understand they are being manipulated, tranquil and used by a suspicion leaders and incite from their narcissistic mercenary debt financed lives. Our enlightenment has failed. The passion and annoy in a republic is commencement to burble over. The masses are commencement to comprehend they have been screwed. They haven’t figured out who to censure given they are still trapped in a Republican/Democrat fake dogma. There is one Party putting on a show, as displayed this week with a mercantile precipice farce, as a supervision tranquil media admitted feat given a standing quo was maintained, zero was cut, and $4 trillion was combined to a National Debt. More people need to doubt and plea a authorities. We contingency expel aside a bullheaded stupidity of contribution and accept a consequences of decades of bad decisions and delusions of grandeur. More supervision is not a answer. We contingency mangle giveaway of a conditioning and mind control used to make us adore a slavery and trust those in power.
Kyle Bass recently suggested a fact about a supervision leaders:
“They’re not going to tell we that a fall is coming. You’re going to have to see it for yourself. The government’s never going to tell we that it’s going to happen. These guys are never going to tell we a truth, given they can’t tell we a truth. Their pursuit is to foster confidence, not to tell we a truth.”
We need some-more people to respond to Roger Waters’ question, “Mother, should we trust a government?” with this answer before we can start to rip down a wall that seemed too high.
“During times of concept deceit, revelation a law becomes a insubordinate act.” – George Orwell
