What kind of livestock are ‘We the People’ to the .01%? Sheeple? Pigs? Cows? Wake-up and smell the manure, see the slaughterhouses, or be farmed

Animal Farm is a George Orwell story of captured beings who suddenly recognize what had always existed: they were livestock to be controlled, worked, and killed. The story ends with the ordinary beings recaptured from failure to see their own enslavement. Four minute summary of Animal Farm, among their 103 analyses with over 60 million views of Thug Notes, by performer Sparky Sweets, Ph.D.:

Earth is a story of captured beings who might recognize what had always existed: they were livestock to be controlled, worked, and killed. The story might end with the ordinary being recaptured from failure to see their own enslavement.

Among soooo many warnings of the fragility and rareness of freedom, on September 18, 1787, just after signing the US Constitution, Benjamin Franklin on what kind of government America would have:

“A republic, if you can keep it.” In his speech to the Constitutional Convention: “This [U.S. Constitution] is likely to be administered for a course of years and then end in despotism… when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other.”  – The Quotable Founding Fathers, pg. 39.

Americans: the hardest working and most gullible work animals on the farm

Q: What do Americans do for fun?

A: They work.

~ a joke told in Europe

Let’s examine three themes connecting Animal Farm with Americans:

  1. “I will work harder.”
  2. Unable/unwilling to discern propaganda and rule violations by “leaders.”
  3. Unable to discern “leaders” as lying rogue state parasites

“I will work harder”

Although Orwell’s allegory focused on the Soviet Union’s lying propaganda to parasitize the work of those people, Americans are the new “winners” for gullible and willing workers for vicious rogue state empire:

  • Boxer the horse works in good faith effort to help the farm, unable to recognize he’s being used. Americans work in good faith effort for personal gain and public contribution, unable to recognize we’re being looted by the annual trillions, with monetary reform and public banking able to provide ~$1,000,000 per average US household in benefits.
  • Both types of animals, farm and American, don’t notice they work harder and harder for less and less, all with crumbling infrastructure ignored by “leaders.” Animal Farm’s leadership is technically ignorant; American leadership is intentionally destructive for infrastructure upgrades (again, here; and here’s a paper to Advanced Placement Economics students on this topic).
  • Both types of animals will be worked to literal death, ignorant of their status as work animals for wanna-be “masters” who laugh at us. The shortcomings of both animals include inability to recognize their “masters” are psychopathic and without empathy. Their evil is irrationally “service to self” that can never have enough, and will lie to control all they can.

Unable to discern propaganda from objective facts

Animal Farm’s creatures cannot recognize the rules are changed right before their eyes, as their status devolves lower and lower to serving insatiable psychopathy and greed. American work animals are worse, given our apparent intelligence for better:

Unable to discern “leaders” are lying rogue state parasites

Animal Farm ends with the inhabitants’ bizarre experience of their own kind so absorbing the evil of their neighboring looters that they all blended into the same kind of twisted beings. American animals now have literal centuries of blinded experience as tragic-comic as spectators in the Emperor’s New Clothes:

  1. Introduction to define ‘rogue state’ as perfect match with US illegal Wars of Aggression, Crimes Against Humanity, dictatorial government
  2. The US violated ~600 treaties with Native Americans to steal Native American land. A treaty is signed by a US President, approved by 2/3 vote of the US Senate, and under Article VI of the US Constitution becomes US “supreme Law.” These ongoing “in your face” violations of “supreme Law” became the precedent to typical hypocritical and unlawful US policies of the present.
  3. US President Polk lied to Congress (with their approval) to initiate War of Aggression on Mexico. The result was the US illegally stealing 40% of Mexico in 1848. Congress opposed Abraham Lincoln’s crystal-clear explanation as a member of Congress that the Adams-Onís Treaty placed the so-called “border dispute” 400 miles within land forever promised to Mexico and forever promised as outside any US claim.
  4. The US violated our treaty with Hawaii and stole their country in 1898.
  5. The US reneged on promises of freedom after the Spanish American War to impose colonialism on the Philippines, and install US-friendly dictators in Cuba. US military slaughtered resisters, calling them yesterday’s version of “terrorists.”
  6. The US entered WW1 upon no national security threat to the US, and imprisoned the 3rd party presidential candidate for challenging “official reasons” for war.
  7. The CIA had several covert wars; perhaps most important in today’s context of war on Iran: “Operation Ajax” that overthrew Iran’s democracy and installed a US-friendly and brutal dictator.  When that dictator was overthrown and Iran refused another, the US aided Iraq to unlawfully invade and attack Iran from 1980-1988; killing up to a million Iranians. If the US lied and acted twice to unlawfully overthrew Iran’s democracy within many of our own lifetimes, shouldn’t we assume first another lie-started unlawful war today?
  8. The Vietnam War followed US permission to cancel the election to unify the country. The US stopped democracy to keep a friendly government, and perhaps to have ongoing live weapons testing and development. War escalated with the Gulf of Tonkin incident,  deliberate provocation to manipulate a false-flag event for “defensive” war.
  9. Perhaps most disturbing is the King Family civil suit that found the US government guilty in the assassination of Dr. King (and here). Corporate media, including our text publishers, omit this history. The King family’s conclusion is that Martin was assassinated to prevent his “Occupy DC” plan beginning for the summer of 1968 to end his version of today’s wars.
  10. We now know from Congressional reports that all “reasons” for war with Iraq were known to be false as they were told.
  11. The two “reasons” for war with Iran are as false as the “reasons” for war with Iraq: Iran never threatened Israel, and Iran’s nuclear energy and medicine programs are IAEA-verified as completely safe and lawful.

How bad is it? How about a million horrific deaths from poverty every month and trillions looted (and just how big a stack is a million bodies and a trillion dollars?)

President Trump remarked of his prayers and condolences for 22 claimed deaths of “young, beautiful innocent people” by “evil losers” at a concert in the UK.

Trump lies in omission of the ~6 million deaths since his election of other young, beautiful innocent people in gruesome slow-motion from preventable poverty. We can calculate the physical volume of 6 million bodies. If we assume an average human dimension of 5 feet tall, width of 1 foot, and depth of .5 foot, this average of 2.5 cubic feet times 6 million total 15 million cubic feet. The dimensions of Trump Tower are a base 76 by 144 feet, and a height of 861 feet for volume of ~9.5 million square feet if we calculate as a rectangular prism.

This means the pile of human bodies killed by ongoing preventable poverty just since Trump’s election is equal in size to over 1.5 Trump Towers.

This is also roughly equal to three new Trump Towers of dead bodies every year.

Since Bill and Hillary Clinton occupied the White House in 1993, ~400 million human beings have died from preventable poverty (over 100 Trump Towers in volume). So-called “developed” and “former” colonial nations have promised to end global poverty since 1969; an accomplishment with technically easy solutions for sustainable human economic needs. These nations’ “leaders” have reneged on all promises to end poverty, public and private, despite an investment of just 0.7% of GNI for ten years that is overwhelmingly supported by those nations’ citizens. The total deaths since 1969 is ~800 million: over 200 Trump Towers’ volume of human corpses.

Important to our essential question of when public demand for arrests will break through in an Emperor’s New Clothes relative moment, the related crime of creating what we use for money only and always as debt payable to the private banking system (think adding negative numbers forever) now adds a trillion dollars of US federal government debt every year. This physical volume of $100 bills is roughly equal to twice the size of the Statue of Liberty, as sharply visualized in this 2-minute video from Demonocracy:

Obviously, America can never be great unless solutions are delivered to end poverty, and transform our debt-based monetary system.

Importantly, the policy “developed” and “former” colonial nations deliver to humanity rather than ending poverty is war. This is a choice of Crimes Against Humanity:

“Crimes against humanity” include any of the following acts committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:

▪ murder;

▪ extermination;

▪ enslavement;…

▪ the crime of apartheid;

▪ other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily or mental injury.

International Criminal Court (ICC)

Demanding arrests as the required and obvious public response to end this farming story:

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).

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):

    • Carl_Herman

      Really? What do you want interested readers to do, just believe you without any explanation and documentation?

      Do you recognize the irony to “comment” upon an article about Americans failing to recognize propaganda with you supplying exactly the same format of propaganda: unexplained and unsubstantiated claims that shift the blame from the .01% onto the workers that MUST be organized to avoid maximum exploitation?

      • Zartan

        Correct, Carl.

        You give 100%, while people may feel the same and agree, ( or be lost in details) seldom will posters go to the level of professionalism. You do, and I congratulate you in your efforts. I always liked Teachers. Truly, there is something very special in those willing to share knowledge.

        You give 100%, and I am impressed with your work; and truthfully, I do not get impressed very easy. I am more negative than positive.

      Disqus / Disgusted: Given this insane / ignorant summation… proves clearly that cousins should not marry. If your job is to make people afraid of the wrong things and have the middle blame the poor after Obama admitted that 93% of the post-2008 planned demolition / wealth-transfer went to the one percent as planned, the concept of Follow The Money is far beyond your intellectual grasp. Check out the CBO stats for CORPORATE WELFARE vs. Social Welfare! America was never greater than when we had a STRONG / Unionized Middle Class!!! Peace. Mark J. Novitsky

      • Disqus-helpsGOVTbreaklaws&kill

        you stir trouble then threaten to ban someone who is right ?

        • Carl_Herman

          Let’s look. You claim to be “right” after making these two “comments”:

          1. “taxpayer funded unaccountable govt employee labor unions have become the sheeple used by corruption to destroy the country”

          2. “stupid democrats and on the clock taxpayer funded trolls will reply to anything.”

          You follow by claiming that I, the author, “stir trouble” after I admonish you to document your claims, be polite, and address the subject of the article. You chose to not explain and document your first claim, but instead insult others. You chose to insult the author as a trouble-maker.

          Please explain and document how your comments are “right.”

          • Disqus-helpsGOVTbreaklaws&kill

            you are a democrat correct ?

    Why bother?
    You put so much good effort into this article and idiot Americans don’t want to look at the US dollar.

    Why is the US dollar issued as a debt to european jewish families who as a result of their criminal ownership of the FEDERAL RESERVE have stolen over $70 trillion in dividends since 1913 which they have used to buy up all large corporations, media, governments and intel agencies.

    Why bother?

    Idiot Americans are too busy narcississtically updating their Farcebook profile and masturbating to each others instagrams.

    • Carl_Herman

      We’ll see, whybother. Life is just; God/One works through messengers to offer choice. This is a window of choice for humans to determine near-future existences either “graduating” from being played as fools, OR to exercise self-expression for virtues.

      We’ll see what develops.

  • awb22

    6 million child deaths from starvation? I can’t believe you’re holding the US responsible for their deaths. Why not the oligarchy pulling the strings? Let’s place the blame squarely where it belongs and stop shaming the American people for something over which they have no control, any more than they would be able to conduct war tribunals. Please, let’s find actionable actionables, and even then, ending world hunger isn’t going to be one of them, anymore than we can establish world peace, as long as there’s a Devil in the world, and as long as there are those who worship him (mammon).

    • Carl_Herman

      You don’t need to “believe” anything when the facts tell the story. These facts include:

      1. Americans have been promised by the “developed” and “former colonial” nations’ “leaderships” to end global poverty since 1969 for less than 1% of their income. Americans hear these things, and forget them. This is a huge responsibility of Americans to hold “leaders” accountable if they want a republic rather than leadership by dicts.

      2. You lie in omission that a central theme of my work is exactly what you state: holding the oligarchy responsible for Crimes Against Humanity. You can’t make the case for .01% arrests any more clear than I do, yet you choose to ignore this because….?

      3. The American people have “no control” over this massive slaughter and looting? You really stand there, citizen? Given all the evidence provided in this article, are you arguing that Americans are unable to at least demand .01% arrests? Are US military incapable to refuse illegal war orders? Why isn’t that obvious and simple action “actionable” for you?

      Americans will remove the demons when they at last recognize their criminal status, and not before, awb22. You’re welcome for my ongoing contributions to make this clear to Americans ready to embrace the facts of their standing as work animals.

      • awb22

        Absolutely, thank you for a superb article!

        However, how are Americans held liable for the actions of their unrepresentative government? Are we to stage a second revolutionary war? The US Constitution is the embodiment of the evolution of human nature, yet it is stampeded over in the zeal and lust for war against everything.

        I will be the first to stand on the line when the government takes up arms against it’s own people. Until that time, we can make all the demands we like, but if no one is listening, what have we accomplished?

        • Carl_Herman

          You’re welcome 🙂

          Many of us have Oaths to protect and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Many of us see the facts and have a choice to take action. Liability is dependent upon circumstances, as you know, awb22, so it depends. That said, we should all have empathy for the challenge of watching truth tellers be executed by the .01%.

          Telling the truth is something we’re all empowered to do. Perhaps choice is all we offer, but silence comes at what price when one is silent in the face of horrific slaughter?

      “To Whom Much Was Given, Much is Expected.”

      America has its place as the ruler of the Filthy Empire, therefore, all “abuses, failures and cataclysms will be placed squarely at her feet. You believe in God, so, Remember, when you face Him, it will be as a US taxpayer, who voluntarily gave to support government. Jesus may forget the names of US taxpayers! We will all have this fate and it cannot be avoided, because in the end, the powers that be will blame US, the people!

      WE were given a Constitution that gave us rights to protest and be a force for God. Nobody wanted to Protest … Which will lead to guilt of the population for Aiding, Abetting and Serving. Americans have “obligations” or their place will be taken by another. Mankind will be responsible for its worship and service to the devil. The Devil is no excuse. We have the Power, Not him.

      • awb22

        When the Devil offered all the kingdoms of the world to Jesus if he would bow down to him, it was within his power to give. You’re correct, he has no power over us, but he is the god of this world, Cor 4:4.

        • Zartan

          Satan can only “steal,” and he has stolen mans POWER. Anyone can rebuke and cast-out, or resist, Satan, so he is no god. However, he only has powers to seduce and corrupt. Mankind must “agree” to serve him; and therefore, it is obvious that man ranks over him.

          Jesus does not want all the Kingdoms, “only those who will Obey Him.” Satan is testing the masses (sifting the wheat and chaff) and God allows it; which is why you will note in JOB how Satan was able to twist God arm and get permission to ABUSE JOB. Sick.

          We should all complain, but the church of Satan`s Jesus has taught “all” to praise God, unconditionally, then people wonder why their prayers never get answered. You cannot lie to God. Praising God with Anger in your heart would be known to God, so why even try it, be truthful and you cannot lose. I, like GOD, despise vanity.

          Satan is doing his Job, unfortunately, God allows this malfeasance! Real Immature Stuff too I might add! Yes, I called GOD immature, and He knows where to find me if He has a Problem with it.

  • Zartan

    Yes, and it is obvious that the program of work animal was programmed into the brains of Americans from their earliest Years. Media, School, Parents ( previous generational brainwash) all have been programmed to value work and nothing else. Basically, the souls of Americans were sold into slavery and they love it. There is humor in it, but not much, because people are so fooled by WORK that their entire lives are dedicated to such.

    It gets worse, because it is not just slavery but utter usury beyond “anything” ever experienced in all of world history:

    Who would pay 30-years for a mortgage … only a fool.
    Who would pay 20-Years for an education to be a Slave … This is perverse!
    Who would want to live in a land with over 1-million laws, Statures, Codes, and Ordinances … All bent on keeping the Slave a Slave or Else?

    There is so much more, but a book is required, However, if things are not bad enough than we have a government that takes from US, the Slaves, and gives to the Masters! No People in History would have put up with such without a Revolution.

    America … Freedom? Rights to Liberty and Happiness? I have a Legal Claim on this before the Creator, and I expect a Refund in TOTAL so I can leave this godforsaken hell! I cannot even go fishing anymore, which was my only form of enjoyment, because I refuse to carry papers, registrations and license just to catch and release bluegill. You can end up in prison for touching the fish, who, I suppose, the US government Created!

    America is beyond tyranny, and I expect a FULL REFUND!

    War is Peace — Freedom is Slavery — Ignorance is Strength. ~~ Orwell

    What kind of animal are we humans, we’re the strangest animal of all, many species have going extinct because of our lifestyles which requires massive sacrifices in the form of polluting the environment not to mention the US defense force which is the largest greenhouse gas polluter on the entire effing planet.

    We all have different personalities, no two are the same.

    According to Chinese mythology 2017 is the year of the Rooster.

    A crimson comb untrimmed on the head,
    All in white, a rooster walks nearby.
    In his life, seldom a single sound he’s made,
    But thousands of doors soon open to his cry. Tang Yin (1470–1524)


    Two good books to read if you really want to understand how the wealthiest people of the world do what this article is about. Jane Mayer’s book “Dark Money” and David Daley’s book about gerrymandering entitled “Ratf###ed”. In those two books looking over the past two decades in particular you will see how a democracy can easily be turned into an authoritarian country – by a wealthy oligarchy – with the help of of a “dumbed down, ignorant, populist base” and a high percentage of a very naive… rest of the electorate. Better wake up pretty soon folks.
