How tragic-comic has your life been under .01% US rogue state empire? With intent for humanity’s breakthrough into freedom, here’s mine

It could be worse; much, and that evokes my relative gratitude.

On the bright side, perhaps we’ll have the breakthrough into Truth and Love we all work for. I’m confident that none of my colleagues has any grasp on reality excluding this desirable outcome.

But with appropriate dismissal of false hope to predict beyond what we can see, by any objective measure, Earth’s environment for human self-expression of virtue is the inverse of what we’re told by “leaders.” Humans attempt to “live” under these tragic-comic conditions:

  • The US isn’t a limited government under the best constitution constructed, but a devolved rogue state empire chief among “developed” and “former colonial” powers annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions. I state this objective factual claim as a professional educator, and among colleagues with zero known evidence of anyone refuting this Emperor’s New Clothes reality.
  • The US does not engage in endless wars to achieve peace or freedom. Ongoing lie-started and Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression require all US military and government to refuse all war orders because there are no lawful orders for obviously unlawful wars. Officers are required to arrest those who issue obviously unlawful orders. And again, those of us working for this area of justice are aware of zero attempts to refute this with, “War law states (a, b, c), so the wars are legal because (d, e, f).” All we receive is easy-to-reveal bullshit. These are Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy of neocolonial war and poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).
  • Americans are debt-slaves: The top three benefits each of monetary reform and public banking total ~$1,000,000 for the average American household, and would be received nearly instantly. Please read that twice. Now look to verify for yourself.

I attempt to keep talking points to three, but there are ~100 such crucial conditions damning Earth’s inhabitants to suffering on this beautiful and dominated planet.

I present my life as a case study for human tragic-comedy with three points:

  • Professional work.
  • Civic activism to build a brighter future.
  • Being “educated” under the empire.

Celebrated professionalism until you challenge the empire

I earn a living as a public school teacher; credentialed in social science and mathematics. Before I recognized the empire for what it is, I assumed US “leadership” was just misguided with outdated paradigms of hot and cold wars, and would realign to real-world solutions with opportunity.

Under this delusion, I volunteered to teach at “hard to staff” schools for Los Angeles Unified School District. My work was recognized by two L.A. Mayors as being among the best teachers in the central city (a teacher population of ~20,000), with students voting me as the school’s favorite teacher more years than not. This naturally blossomed into projects to improve wider conditions:

  • Professional development for teachers.
  • National partnership with business leaders to contribute real-world statistical perspective to improve school performance.
  • Community partnership with city leaders after the Rodney King riots.

Each initiative was quickly crushed by LAUSD. Leading teachers at my school were given various and bogus reprimands, with encouragement by administration to accept deals to transfer schools. What seemed to be at the core of motivating their attacks was professional consideration of central data, such as the district claiming that Jefferson High School had a 75% graduation rate when we had ~1200 9th grade students yet just ~330 yearly graduates. This would seem to be less than a 30% graduation rate, and ~25% if we counted the 8th grade students who chose to not even attempt high school. LAUSD declined to explain why they chose to count only the 12th grade students who graduated at the end of the school year as the most valid data to measure what percentage of children graduated from high school.

This initial inversion of professionalism by “leaders” certainly got our attention. We responded with escalating inquiries into factual reality to discover what was really driving our profession.

Although my knowledge, professional skills, and student/parent satisfaction with my work has only increased with more experience, “official” opposition to my professionalism over the last twenty years has escalated to my being fired four times since 2009. These school districts can dismiss teachers within their first two years without cause, yet one district did so with such illegal zeal that resultant legal recourse had them pay me an additional year’s salary (the district took pains to waste as much of my time possible before surrendering in court to the overwhelming evidence). Each case of my dismissal had strange evidence of forces behind the scenes orchestrating the attacks, and rejection of any ordinary and obvious data (student learning, student/parent satisfaction, my leadership in applying my subject matter to real-world projects and university invitations to present my research to global audiences, etc.).

I was also “fired” from the Advanced Placement US Government discussion board for contributing teaching points about unchallenged facts connected to current US wars for the “reasons” that these posts were “non-academic,” of “personal nature,” and “unsuitable” for consideration of teachers in a college-level course on government. This is with zero known refutation of presented facts of the most expensive government expenditure in money and lives. The information centered on war law and disclosed facts by US government agencies.

Similar posts were removed from AP Economics, although I’ve not been removed from their discussion board. Connected with my work in civic activism, AP teachers in government and economics have told me they know of no other teacher more qualified to teach these courses.

My current job is teaching Algebra 1 to students who failed this class at least once, with the most challenged/challenging students of a low-performing school. An irony is that at the start of my teaching career over 30 years ago, my younger brother and I helped pioneer computer one-on-one teaching technology that consistently produced one to two years of math learning in a six week lab. Of course, these results and technology were rejected by district “leadership.” My brother since is one of top national teachers in AP Calculus.

Despite my current predicament of teaching the lowest of the low students in a subject they’ll never use as adults, many other victims of empire are jobless. So, I’m grateful to not live in poverty.

My analysis:

  • Cognitive dissonance has ~90% of my professional education colleagues entrained to accept what they’re told and fearful of real leadership outside what they’re told. I conclude this is at the heart of my being rejected over 200 times in job applications during my time of unemployment, particularly ironic in context of my leadership in scholarship and real-world applications discussed in our next section, and perfectly understandable if significant numbers of people are repulsed by leaders taking responsibility for our most important topics and inverted by rogue state “leaders.”
  • “Leadership” of empire must control corporate media (and here) and public education to maintain dominance. They place agents to do so.
  • Life/God chooses at this time to place enough agents of virtue to provide choice to humanity, but not enough of us to affect policy. Perhaps this is a window of choice that will close some kind of experiment in unleashed evil. Perhaps Earth is a permanent school for such development. With human limitations, of course, I’m just like you with no fucking idea what’s really going on.

Civic activism that activates what now?

Paying attention to Life’s prompts, I began studying and working for the end of domestic and global poverty at age 17. I helped grow a citizens’ lobby, RESULTS, that expanded into over 100 US communities and seven countries that led to two UN summits for heads of state. This took 20 years of work that was close to having a second job, with commitment to accomplish the end of poverty before dedicating time to having children.

This is what I learned from 1977 to 1997:

  • The so-called “developed” and “former” colonial nations had no interest in ending poverty despite having all positive outcomes and no negatives. “Leaders” would smile, promise everything, then do nothing with shifting bullshit “reasons.”
  • Corporate media refused to report accurately, and would intentionally lie on our most important news.
  • Although initially I fully expected to be absorbed into the political process to end poverty, because neither party wanted that outcome I needed to shift my attention to follow the money if I wanted to understand “leadership’s” intentions.

In the last 20 years from 1997 to 2017, this is what I’ve learned:

“Education” within the empire

I wrote an article series that public education (along with captured universities) is meant to stupefy people to serve the empire as work animals. Here’s my experience as a student:

  • At age 14 as a high school freshman, JPL attempted to recruit me into a “special program” based upon my math test results placing third competing mostly among seniors and juniors at a top-performing high school. Paying attention to intuition, I declined. I graduated from high school as co-valedictorian, Senior Class President, won the award for the student contributing the most community service, was a three sport athlete, and wrote/directed/acted in school plays. I state this to demonstrate the tragic-comedy of our human condition that such a student would shortly thereafter be “gate-kept” out of any meaningful academic advancement.
  • At undergraduate work at U.C. Berkeley with a designed major for ending global poverty, I read leading research such as the Presidential Commission Report for ending hunger and the National Academy of Sciences report on this subject, while engaged in real-world work with various poverty-ending organizations and lobbying with RESULTS as Northern California Director for US domestic and foreign policies. I had six years’ hands-on experience by the time I graduated in 1983, and well-briefed on leading research and current policies. This was also just a few years before UNICEF’s Executive Director would credit our work with RESULTS as saving over a million children’s lives every year with increased funding we lobbied to win. These described areas of work and progress was punished on my grades rather than uplifted, as I gradually discovered that coursework asking for students’ interpretations and analyses didn’t really mean for students to think for themselves. My usual grade for written work was “C-”. In contrast, my older brother earned straight “A’s” for ten years to earn a Ph.D in psychology employing a different strategy: discern and deliver what the professor most wanted to see. My own condition of networking with international leaders in the multiple and various components of ending poverty (such as clean water, education, access to credit, and about twenty others) to provide incisive written work of real-world advancements was so misunderstood and not understood by professors and graduate students that I concluded staying in school was wasting my time (my father talked me out of dropping-out).
  • Fifteen years after undergraduate work, and after my third failed project to improve public education for LAUSD, my wife talked me into going back to school to get a Ph.D, then try again. At Harvard’s Graduate School of Education’s Ed.M program, I again experienced the inversion of professors more interested in receiving back the teaching they gave rather than empowering anything outside what they already knew. The most ridiculous example was my taking a course in school district finance because I was curious about this area I never previously studied and knew little about. All I was able to do was understand and repeat what I read in the coursework. As a result, the professor introduced me to the Superintendent of New York public schools as his “brightest finance student” with recommendation for hire. At this meeting, I politely explained the irony of being appreciated for having no professional experience, while receiving continuous grades of “B-” in classes for analysis of leading-edge inner-city teaching. After Harvard’s Ed.M, my two years of Ph.D applications were all rejected by about a dozen leading schools. My losing proposal:
    • Public education was de facto work to produce individually educated and successful human beings.
    • This said, the goal of an educated and successful global community requires evolution that individual success is merely a first step toward this goal.
    • My Ph.D work would explore possibilities for and results in types of education for humans learning to work in relationship with others, in organizations, and communities. Without education moving in this direction, humanity would likely continue in a divided and dangerous global community. With this education, humanity might develop into an ever-successful and virtuous global community. Somehow, this proposal didn’t communicate and/or met gatekeepers who wouldn’t allow such work in the rogue state empire.
    • The second year of proposals included applications to law schools with my interest to work for the US State Department for leadership to solve humanity’s leading problems, like poverty. Despite real-world accomplishments in this area that included RESULTS strongly contributing to two UN summits for heads of state, no top-tier law school accepted my offer (I scored at ~90th percentile on the LSAT and ~98th percentile on the GRE, but perhaps my relatively low grades filtered me out).

After two years of failed applications, we moved back to California from Massachusetts.

What keeps me going

Faith: I feel deeply connected to all Life, and therefor experience I have purpose in this Earth tragic-comedy despite my human limitations to perceive much of what this purpose might be. It has something to do with shining forth this connection to Life, virtue, and choice to humanity. Again, perhaps our role is to contribute choice for ordinary humans while in such few numbers it is easy to reject opportunities to take actions outside rogue state empire constraints.

Love: I know and feel more than almost anyone the viciously destructive outcomes of empire annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions. My personal experience of being thwarted to engage in good-faith work to evolve human relations is of little importance compared to the millions of our Brothers and Sisters crushed by empire. Love for their uplift is a central and driving force for my passionate self-expression. In the last 20 years alone, the .01% empire has poverty-murdered ~400 million human beings in gruesome slow-motion; more deaths than all wars and acts of violence in all recorded human history.

Victory: I feel that my personal self-expression would never waste my time. That is, I must be on some powerful team on Earth for some obscured and important purpose that seems most obvious as networking for humanity’s victory over rogue state empire. My experience of working with literal thousands of Earth’s best people in civic activism corroborates this sense that we’re here to win. Of course, as guests on Earth rather than management, we have limited voice for this outcome.

Recommendations: Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness filter exposes US as greatest force to kill Life in Earth’s history

What will be obvious after victory is the data we point to today. This includes that people around the world view the US as the greatest threat to peace; voted three times more dangerous than any other country. The data confirm this conclusion:

Lie-started and Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression is all the evidence necessary for US military to refuse all war orders (there are no lawful orders for unlawful war), and for officers to arrest those who issue them.

This argument extends to all in US law enforcement agencies for war-related crimes of treason, murders and injuries to US military lied-into illegal Wars of Aggression, and .01% military looting last reported at $6.5 trillion.

As a professional academic, the most accurate description of the US is rogue state illegal empire.

As I explain in hypothetical conversations with George Washington (herehere), the US citizen position seems insufficient to stop the empire without Emperor’s New Clothes recognition among US military and law enforcement that the wars they “serve” are not even close to lawful, and the exact type of armed attacks that US treaties after two world wars were meant to end forever.

And again, we now know from official US government documentation that all “reasons” for current US wars were known to false as they were told.

There is no responsible action from anyone informed other than to assert the OBVIOUS:

The wars are illegal and must be ended.

Those who orchestrated these wars must be put under arrest.

Related to looting trillions, there are dozens of related crimes hiding the US rogue state empire that must be revealed and ended. This opens the brighter future we all know is possible from the pure bullshit we now receive under this empire.

Obvious Truths responsible citizens must speak: .01% US orchestrated crimes destroying Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness

Demanding arrests as required truthful public response to defend Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness

The categories of crime include:

  1. Wars of Aggression (the worst crime a nation can commit).
  2. Likely treason for lying to US military, ordering unlawful attack and invasions of foreign lands, and causing thousands of US military deaths.
  3. Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).
  4. Tens of trillions in looting, including $6.5 trillion just reported by the US Department of “Defense” as “lost.”

US military, law enforcement, and all with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, face an endgame choice:

In just 90 seconds, former US Marine Ken O’Keefe powerfully states how you may choose to voice “very obvious solutions”: arrest the criminal leaders (video starts at 20:51, then finishes this episode of Cross Talk):

Solutions worth literal tens of trillions to ‘We the People’ won’t buy Happiness, but buys many avenues of Pursuit 🙂

Again, and truths literally the most valuable of public attention:

  • The top three benefits each of monetary reform and public banking total ~$1,000,000 for the average American household, and would be received nearly instantly. Please read that twice. Now look to verify for yourself.
  • We can quantify the end of the lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression quickly into the trillions, and that said, it’s worth a lot more than what we quantify.
  • Truth: a world in which education is expressed in its full potential to only and always begin with good-faith effort for objective, comprehensive, and verifiable data.


Note: I make all factual assertions as a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, Economics, and History, with all economics factual claims receiving zero refutation since I began writing in 2008 among Advanced Placement Macroeconomics teachers on our discussion board, public audiences of these articles, and international conferences (and here). I invite readers to empower their civic voices with the strongest comprehensive facts most important to building a brighter future. I challenge professionals, academics, and citizens to add their voices for the benefit of all Earth’s inhabitants.


Carl Herman is a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, Economics, and History; also credentialed in Mathematics. He worked with both US political parties over 18 years and two UN Summits with the citizen’s lobby, RESULTS, for US domestic and foreign policy to end poverty. He can be reached at

    OMG This essay if fabulous! You have my full support in all you do. I am writing an essay starting this weekend and will link to you with a quote when it comes to education. Your story is incredible. Thank you for sharing. I teach ESL at a community college and have had to stand up to a Gates grant for curriculum when I pointed out how what they wanted was designed poorly. Told to sit down and shut up with some of the other teachers joining in. It was such a B.S. yet enlightening experience.

  • NobodysaysBOO

    2 quotes come to mind instantly reading this item.
    “People that do things, do. Those that can not do things TEACH.”
    but P.Floyd said ” TEACHER! LEAVE THOSE KIDS ALONE!”


    The PRESIDENT of the ENTIRE USA said that there was plenty of money spent on education and NO LEARNING or something close that common core is really screwing kids heads up.

    • Carl_Herman

      Really, Boo? You read this article documenting US rogue state from a leader who DID THINGS that led to two UN summits for heads of state that saved somewhere between 100 million and 200 million human lives, and you want us to believe what came to your mind is teachers “can’t do things”?

      You respond to a leader to identify and end propaganda in the classroom with your choice of comment? But thanks for allowing opportunity to emphasize a linked article series you didn’t recognize: public education is bullshit. If you’re sincere with your words, this is a helpful tool of a professional leading educator documenting the propaganda:

    • diogenes

      “propaganda in the classroom is just wrong!” I agree absolutely, and if you had a clue I would send you to review any highschool American history text and see what you find. But from your comments I am willing to bet that you wouldn’t know propaganda if it shat in your dinner plate.

  • Brother Nature

    It’s amazing how media outlets will do an entire story about Israel’s/Judaism’s crimes against humanity and Israel’s financial crimes, Agenda 21 Israel’s baby, yet never once mention Israel.

    You propagandists have taken hiding Israel from the general public to an art-form, wittingly or unwittingly.

    The Agenda 21 pseudo world court is built and perpetrating crimes against humanity from Israel, today.

    Agenda 21 defined:

    “We Jews, we are the destroyers and will remain the destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and needs. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own.”(You Gentiles, by Jewish Author Maurice Samuel, p. 155).

    Howz about some real news instead of all this…false propaganda.

    • Carl_Herman

      You write in ignorance, arrogance, and/or deceit, Bro. I’m a leading writer to document Israel’s illegal War of Aggression on Gaza that requires arrests of their “leaders”:

      Moreover, Bro, you should watch the 90-second at the end of the article as an ongoing message I provide in articles that indicts Israel as another rogue state.

      Finally, from me to you, is the tone and content of your comment how you really want to respond to all the strong points made in this article, and to a leading advocate for “We the People’s” victory?

      Your call, and you’ll receive from Life the quality that you give. Choose wisely.

      • Brother Nature

        lol. Truth goes through three stages; first it’s ridiculed.

        Did you even look at the info or are you still dumb as rocks, fast asleep, a complete and utter ignoramus as demonstrated by your reply?

        • diogenes

          According to the jewish magazine Forward, jews (2% of Americans) own over 40% of American wealth. So wealthy Jews are only 40% of the wealthy class, which is one American in a thousand and one Jew in 200.

          So your focus, “Brother,” is misdirected. The problem isn’t Jews, it’s the consolidated big money, jewish and goy, the absentee investor predators with headquarters on Wall Street, that has usurped and subverted our country’s government.

          When you start spewing about jews, I figure you’re either a bigot or a false flag waver, trying to sully an accurate, cogent discussion with the appearance of bigotry. Either way, it stinks.

          • Brother Nature

            No. You are incorrect. Judaism is a tight night tribe of cannibals terrorizing Earth.

            Jewish Kabbalistic Occult Ritual Child Murder throughout history – Ekhad


            And, you figured way wrong about me:

            I’m a Catholic, Christian, Jewish, Russian, Austrian, Polish, Ashkenazim, German, English, Italian, Cherokee Indian bunny luvin’ tree huggin’ conservative who voted for Donald Trump and supports making America great again. But, I don’t support making Israel great. I oppose Israel’s lies and corruption and self-aggrandizing greed and genocidal mania. Israel could have risen to greatness but chose evil instead. Israel must be brought to justice for masterminding and perpetrating 9/11, a Jewish ritual mass murder, 100% fact.

            Agenda 21 defined:

            “We Jews, we are the destroyers and will remain the destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and needs. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own.”(You Gentiles, by Jewish Author Maurice Samuel, p. 155).

            Worse, 9/11 defined:

            “In Israeli Prime Minister Moshe Sharatt’s personal diaries, there is an excerpt from May of 1955 in which he quotes Moshe Dayan as follows: “[Israel] must see the sword as the main, if not the only, instrument with which to keep its morale high and to retain its moral tension. Toward this end it may, no — it must — invent dangers, and to do this it must adopt the method of provocation-and-revenge…And above all — let us hope for a new war with the Arab countries, so that we may finally get rid of our troubles and acquire our space.” Quoted in Livia Rokach, “Israel’s Sacred Terrorism.”

            Israel/Judaism perpetrated ritual mass murder for profit on 9/11, ask Al Franken, he “got the Jew call” the day before 9/11.

            youz guyz are way behind on your research and are parroting mindlessly the NWO diatribe. wakey wakey, shun the snakey!

            You do know Israel/Judaism has been kicked out of 109 countries thus for due to their tribal insanity, correct?

          • obfuscate much diogenes?

            jooz are busy as cats covering up turds in a litter box, trying to draw attention away from the hellish nightmare they have wrought for mankind via their Talmudist ways.

            I’m surprised you didn’t get told it was the jesuits, or someone OTHER THAN the jooz.

            jooz know that the goyim are slowly, oh so slowly, awakening to their evil, and their deception. maybe not fast enough, but the scum and villainy who have instigated the wars and done the false flags like U.S.S. Liberty and the Lavon Affair and of course, 9/11/2001, are surely going to kick you in the nuts for telling the world that jooz are the menace to all life on the planet. their sayanim and goyim henchmen also are scum, but without the filth at the centre of the whole thing, the khazarian frauds who never ever for a split second had one drop of semitic blood in their fetid dank neanderthalian veins, those who hurl the epithet; “CONSPIRACY THEORISTS” and “ANTI SEMITES” are the root of all evil all the way back to when their scummy ilk matriculated out of the balkans and adopted judaism. “By Deception Thou Shall Do War” is the motto of these scum. let them be known to all mankind that they are the de-facto SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN and they are a malevolent, nasty infestation that will be the end of mankind if they are not stopped.

            The Jesuits are owned and run by the Queen of Britain/Israel, same difference. Britain translates to “Israel”. So, the queen of britian/israel is the head masonic/psychopath jew and puppet master of the secret society JFK warned us about. The jews have a plan to “enslave every man, woman, and child.” The end result?

          Agenda 21 is a legit topic; one of ~100 crucial and game-changers, and as with almost all of these topics outside the scope of this article.

          Thanks for answering my question about your tone and content, even when provided with direct evidence that I’m a leader to recognize Israel as having a rogue criminal regime managing them, similar to the US.

          For those interested in my contributions to counter the “false propaganda” Bro asserts I offer, and again just to clearly ask Bro: what do you say about the 90 second video in the article above?

          What do you say about this professional academic paper regarding the topic you insist is more important than the content of the article? Here:

          • Brother Nature

            You’re way off. Israel is Great Britain. Britain translates to “the land of the covenant”, Israel. Our greatest national security risk is Israel and their Agenda 21, nazi/jewish criminal genocide, the secret society JFK warned us about.

            I see you are pro-truth, but your research is sorely lacking, just trying to get you up to speed, sorry if I’ve offended you with the facts you need to accomplish your mission, spank me.

            The article? Evidence of a Jewish media cover-up in the US of Israel’s war crimes in the US and Palestine and nationwide via Agenda 21, Israel’s baby — nazi/jewish genocide.

            Are we on the same page now?

          • Carl_Herman

            Thank you for all you do for factual understanding, Bro. Israel and Judaism are as captured by a .01% evil as the US and Christianity are. Until enough people demand arrests, we won’t know much about the machinations of those hidden wanna-be masters, and they will move forward with their agendas that I agree with you include death for the vast majority of humanity.

          • Brother Nature

            It’s up to Trump to keep his promise to lock ‘m up, drain the swamp, and help us make America great again. If he lifts the hemp prohibition without regulation, drains the swamp for real and ends the fed, then he’s for real. Otherwise, he’s lickin’ the jew-els of the NWO.

  • diogenes

    Thanks, Carl. Truth hurts.

    That’s how the public schools work. “Society,” as operated by its owners and gatekeepers, is a lie. Any teacher who can still see beyond the end of his/her nose and is honest with him/her-self, knows it. Teachers who teach the truth, who incite students to really think about real subjects, get fired. What’s the all purpose PhD exam question? Tell me what I want to hear.

    Athenian democracy considered every citizen an equal shareholder and regarded it as proper for the state to pay citizens dividends. The increment of association — the social difference that is greater than the sum of the parts, what several of us can do that none of us can do separtely — is the creation of all the people associated and belongs to all of us.

    Public banking was Ben Franklin’s solution. It worked for two generations in colonial Pennsylvania. And it produces exactly the benefits you claim.

    William R. Herzog, Parables As Subversive Speech, is worth reading, if you want to know what Jesus meant when he said “you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free,” who he was talking to and who he was talking about, and why they executed him shortly thereafter.

    • Carl_Herman

      You’re welcome, diogenes. As you so dearly know, this is how our hidden wanna-be masters roll against those revealing empire.

      Thank you for insightful commentary on your wealth of learning, and guest articles.

      We’ll do what we can 🙂

    As a plutocracy our government has routinely, by means of the entertainment media, news exploitation, and even legislation, kept the majority divided in order to maintain elite minority rule. At that time the melting pot formed of diverse immigrants were, as the story is told, arriving for new opportunities. The facts are more likely they were encouraged by the business elite to be strike breakers at a time when bringing workers here to work for a cheaper wage was cheaper than moving plants to where these immigrants were coming from.
    The collusion of big business, large parts of the media, and the government, worked together to maintain and inflate the differences of these immigrants and keep them from working together to form unions.

    Seen through the lens of history it was a much simpler time. There were political parties that truly represented the working majority; the communist party, the anarchists, and the progressives.

    The two party system we currently have are both parties of the elite used to divide the majority. Big business has become a nation of its own and on the global stage, with the exception of the military, the United States has become expendable.

    The democrat party, the party provided to represent the working majority, became the party of the ultra elite and wars of aggression.
    These mass protests should not be anti-Trump protests – they should be anti government and the corporatocracy we have become.

      Its a fact that can be established from the Congressional Record that in the 1880s the hired political mouthpieces of wealth said, ‘we need more immigrants to lower the price of labor and raise the cost of real estate.’ Now they say, ‘opportunity, freedom, refuge, blah blah blah’ but they mean exactly the same thing. Until America can provide a decent place to live for all Americans, this needs to STOP. You don’t invite people over for dinner when you’re having trouble feeding your children. And we are. America’s public health statistics — like infant mortality for god sake — are worse than Turkey’s or Cuba’s, and this directly correlates with America’s grotesque maldistribution of wealth. In 1915 the congressionally mandated Commission on INdustrial Relations stated — you can go to the library and read it for yourself — that if the wealth of America were equitably distributed there is MORE THAN ENOUGH to provide EVERYONE with a decent MIDDLE CLASS life. But not when the absentee investor predator pig vampires of the Wall Street oligarchy — the 1% and their bettors — keep half of everything in their own sties. America needs bacon. And that’s where to find it.


    optimism is good stuff, Carl, and some of us have been carrying the fight to the enemy inside the gates for much of our adult lives, but the damage is too extensive for anyone to reverse. best I can compare the aggregate harm the U.S.S.A. has done to the world, is to say that ‘2’ nuclear devices detonated on innocents in Japan, and millions of deaths in Iraq over more than two decades, and drone murders, and CIA destabilizing of the entire world have wrought such unbelievable harm that no amount of disinfectant can rid us of the stench of death this nation has unjustly meted out for the Rothschilds who controls her.

    so, as much as I agree, and would like to think we’re on a different trajectory, I think we’re once again going to find out that:

    1.) Donald Trump did not stop the drone murdering.
    2.) Donald Trump did not free the Guantanamo detainees and close the blight on this nation.
    3.) The C.I.A. will continue to exist and run rampant across the globe, unabated.
    4.) The sheeple in this disgusting toilet will remain more than 90 percent ‘cognitive dissonance’ encapsulated.
    5.) The moron sheeple will continue to be mesmerized by their toys and totally disconnected from reality.

    having said that, how does anyone undo the harm. it’s like asking the rotation of the earth be stopped and reversed. sooo very much harm and with Fukushima’s onslaught still destroying the planet, unchecked, we have so little time. so very little time.
