As .01% face extinction: Scrooge, Darth Vader, Professor Snape offer advice to their minions

4-minute video of Darth Vader’s choice to serve love, family, and community rather than vicious psychopathic hatred:

For those involved in support of US government-sponsored disinformation and massive crimes that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions of the 99%’s dollars, I invite you to consider the quality of human relationships you wish to work for in creating your/our future.

National security and a brighter future is not a function of fear, manipulation, and psychopathic control. Our best security follows cooperation, justice under the law, dignity, and freedom. Surely you recognize that all promised natural rights in America are now gone, and the 99.99% are herded by the .01% as their work animals. The slaughter to which we are herded:

Working for your best imagined self-expression of virtue may include a unique contribution from the inside of your agency. You, as Darth Vader and Professor Snape in fictions that are popular for strong resonance to a real story we all want told, can reclaim your hearts and honor to be our heroes.

Truly, aren’t you ready now to re-embrace love and honor as your path?

Please consider the wisdom of a “Scrooge conversion” to act for the benefit of all humanity rather than your self-proclaimed loveless “masters.” From Dickens’ 1843 text:

“Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did not die, he was a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world. Some people laughed to see the alteration in him, but he let them laugh, and little heeded them; for he was wise enough to know that nothing ever happened on this globe, for good, at which some people did not have their fill of laughter in the outset; and knowing that such as these would be blind anyway, he thought it quite as well that they should wrinkle up their eyes in grins, as have the malady in less attractive forms. His own heart laughed: and that was quite enough for him.”

Public attraction to the stories of Star Wars and the Harry Potter books/movies recognize that our society’s jump to civilized relations for all of us might require support from people within the “dark side” acting as covert agents for building a brighter future.

Both Darth Vader (see video) and Professor Snape realized they were only tools of powers above them, things to be manipulated rather than sentient beings of free will. The severest irony is they both recognized their service to the “dark side” included deaths of their loved-ones and even themselves whenever convenient to their “masters.” That was Snape’s ending, although his path was taken with honor to infiltrate the darkness (4-minute video):

But that should be an obvious conclusion to those working in the real-world version of these analogies. We see it in the macro picture of millions killed every year through war and poverty, and in micro with individuals who we know.

For years, I have recommended Truth and Reconciliation to exchange full truth and return of public assets for no prosecution and a guaranteed provided comfortable retirement. Indeed, I am prepared to speak on the .01%’s corporate media to present this option with full confidence it is the most efficient in ending the crimes and avoiding a violent end-game as the .01% are recognized for who they really are by the 99.99%.

“Every day, I saw more evidence about the evils humankind will inflict on their fellow humans to gain or maintain power…What is more, those who choose not to empathize may enable real monsters. For without ever committing an act of outright evil ourselves, we collude with it through our own apathy…If you choose to use your status and influence to raise your voice on behalf of those who have no voice; if you choose to identify not only with the powerful, but with the powerless; if you retain the ability to imagine yourself into the lives of those who do not have your advantages, then it will not only be your proud families who celebrate your existence, but thousands and millions of people whose reality you have helped transform for the better. We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”  – J. K. Rowling, Harvard Commencement, June 5, 2008.

Minions to the evil .01%: does this 1-minute video artistically represent your memories, too?

    The Thirteenth Amendment forbade slavery and involuntary servitude, “except as punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted.” Crops stretch to the horizon. Black bodies pepper the landscape, hunched over as they work the fields. Officers on horseback, armed, oversee the workers.

    gw posts like this are so gay.
    your other stuff might be ok somtimes. this, gay. and i don’t mean homogay because plenty of homos are good at killing and being warriors as we all know.

    no. gay as in too happy gay. it’s ridiculous.

      I don’t see any “communism” at all propounded or advocated in Carl Herman’s writings. I see American progressive economic democracy in the tradition of LaFollette and Brandeis and Voorhis and Nader.

      In “keev kirsh’s” comment I see red-baiting. Whatever his motives, his methods betray his ill intent.

      • zeev kirsh

        no , communism isn’t a lie. the lie is that communism doens’t exist nor does capitalism. the hegelian narratives are weaponized to make people think there is something to support or something to be against.

        let us fight for what? what does ‘fight mean’. you cannot fight for peace. it is an oxymoron, or rather, it makes you think about what ‘peace’ really means. peace is not the cartoonized caracture of an ‘absence of all hostilities’ that peacenik hippy sloppy thinkers would like to believe it is while they relax and spout thoughtless nonsensisms.

        what does “let us fight” even mean , does it mean you can change the world in a MEANINGFUL WAY by simply talking at people? or do you need police to deal with uncooperative ‘badguys’?

        the question is not about what peace is. the question is who does it belong to and who imposes ‘peace’ and on what terms?

        i’d say the u.s. struck pretty reasonable terms with stalin . it’s a biassed perspective because my very presence is my proof that it was ‘reasonable’ for it allowed me to exist to praise that balanced ‘peace’.

          Interesting comments zeev. It’s important to break patterns and offer approaches that “zing” us out of our platitudes and fixed positions. However, just so you know, we are facing huge challenges that the current authorities at all levels and sectors refuse to deal with because their focus is on keeping their power and the status quo. We are not only going through a major environmental crisis but a civilizational crisis. Immorality on the scale practiced by the ruling elites is not sustainable they must, one way or the other, give way or we’re done.

          • zeev kirsh

            ok so you are advocating communist violent revolution or you are not, stop pretending to be like a gaywad who thinks the semantic debate about what comprises ‘nonviolence’ is interesting.

            what i mean by this is that the ‘power of the crowd’ or ‘the mob’ to squat an area, or not pay taxes to an existing social construct –is not a form of ‘nonviolence’ . violence is an unconsented to act upon someone else. the social construct is not voluntary. rouseau and hume’s ‘social contract’ is as much a fiction as the notion of ‘efficient markets’ are in economics’ or ‘natural rights’ are in ethics. there is no such thing as these things, they are simply platonic constructs used for thought puzzles.

            all society’s are ongoing large termite social human insect endeavors, huge machines, into which human beings are born or immigrate into. they dont’ have a choice most of the time at all one way or another. and thus, you are violently born into your social construct. it was not your choice to be part of it. you can either voluntarily leave it, or voluntarily obstruct it. by obstructing it, you are attempting to spread non-cooperative behavior that will chaotically alter the social construct. in general the goal——as you said is to remove the leadership or make them ‘give way’, wether they be ‘kings’ ‘elites’ or ‘whoever’. this simply ISN’T POSSIBLE without either substituting other leaders for the ones in charge through an unconsented to process, OR destroying the entire society altogether ( which usually happens in conquest rather than revolution) . the answer is that that social violence isn’t reducbile to kumbaya love nonsense by simply throwing down the verbal ghandi gauntlet. social revolution is a very violent unconsented to process by which the chains of the social contractual chain gang of society are not removed, BUT REFASHIONED into a new unconsented to social ‘contract’ upon a society that is created a new in the place of the old one by the so alled revolutionaries upon the rest of society.

            more likely that will not happen in our society . i thank god for this because i am the kind of person that would side with counterrevolutionaries and we all know that we dont’ want to have to get to that point. i much rather prefer the rot and social decay that lasts for a century or more as the elites play the same squabble games over their claim to leadership and ownership .

            america is NOT a society of outright slavery internally. our game with outsoucring slave conditions to ‘cheap labor’ labor arbitrarge nations such as china is just fine with me. you are wearing clothing right? 99% of it is made in china and east asia. you are consenting to it as well. if you really want to be ghandi people like me, will never take you seirously. the world is not flat, it is just an interconnected slave state with our nation enjoying the better part of the benefits of this system. it is not perfect, and yes, we run a prison industrial gulag with circuses the likes of which the empires of rome could never hav eimagined. but so what? why complain? why not build your own corner? why pretend ‘the elites must ‘one way or antoher’ give way when you yourself are too much of a coward to do anything but talk and write nonsense. GW has been at this game for so long. and he is a great example of how a little bit of truth or knowledge is dangerous. thankfully our information warfare and psychological penetration experts at the nsa and pentago have this game so under control that they can use finesse to deal with these things. it used to seem that things like operation gladio and the BBG made no sense to me. but they make perfect sense to me after the last 10 years of studying the whole edifice.

            you can go back to reading charles hugh smith and paul craig roberts and sniffing your own ass about unfair the world is and how it’s crumbling and blablabla. doesn’t preaching to the crowd get tiring? what ACTION shall you take? don’t tell me. just do it ( nike : ) )

            I don’t advocate anything really but being aware and awake in the moment. We live in a post-ideological world in part because things are way too complex for the usual sort of hierarchical rule-structure. We live in a world that is best understood by balance as sytems’ analysis shows as well as emergent and artificial intelligence. If I’m anything I am an anarchist but one with eyes wide-open in opposition to the denizens of the right and the left who have eyes wide shut.
