Period 2009 – 2010
As bad as things are in Pakistan today, it will get far worse in the West. The Letter to Muslims, Chapter 2 of vol. 2, examines this tortuous aspect of our zeitgeist.
We can still salvage Pakistan for its 200 million peoples despite all that has transpired in this twisted War on Terror; despite all our traitors, mercenaries, useful idiots, native informants, and house negroes who have sold the public short; and despite the state of un-functioning of the nation, without electricity, water, decent livelihood and affordable living for the 98% of the majority, and a lawlessness that would have been beyond imagination in the 1960s and 1970s when I grew up in the carefree idyllic Pakistan.
One cannot look at Pakistan in isolation on the Grand Chessboard. The world conditions are rapidly percolating towards global governance to culminate in world government. Pakistan has thus far been played for a dumb-ass pawn with copious help from Pakistan’s military – the only real power-base in Pakistan whose upper echelons since Pakistan’s blood-drenched creation have been entirely beholden to its foreign masters. It is now self-evident that Pakistan’s and Israel’s creation were crafty ploys by the world superpowers who for the past hundred plus years have only dreamed of global empire and world government. Islamic Pakistan was to be the foil for Zionist Israel – both created in the name of religion. One to be played up to culminate in the “Zion that will light up all the world”, the other to be eventually destroyed after it had been calculatingly harnessed to fertilize and birth-pang terror like a condom deliberately pricked by the illicit concubine. What happens to used condoms? That’s right! And to unwanted babies? Right again.
Given Pakistan’s ‘used condom’ status, I mean en passant status on the Grand Chessboard, what can Pakistanis realistically do about it? First of all, Pakistanis can do absolutely nothing so long as they are ruled by mercenaries, fools, and uncle toms. Unless that obstacle is removed, there is no sense in day dreaming. I have no idea how to do that – for, even the noble Prophet of Islam had to bow before the tyrannical power of the mercenaries of his time who eventually succeeded in killing his family and hijacking Islam to such a vile degree that today, our mosques are full with apathetic worshippers seeking heaven’s glory while God’s creation is made to live hell right here on earth.
All I can humbly do, appropriate to my limited vision, experience, and commonsense, is provide the forensic global analysis to explain what the game is on the Grand Chessboard, identify where it’s headed, and to coldly opine to my brethren among the remaining 2% population of Pakistan who have turned Pakistan into the ‘used condom’ of the hectoring hegemons: stop being spineless bastards, for Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned; nor Hell a fury like the plebes scorned.
The time to affect change is now if not already way past. Fait accompli mercilessly awaits right at the edge of the Rubicon after which humpty dumpty cannot be stitched back together again.
Surely, at least some among Pakistan’s military is a MA KA LAL who must realize this? Surely, some among Pakistan’s literati is a Field Negro who can say NO to the “massa”? Surely, some among Pakistan’s ruling class suckled on the liberating bosoms of un-servitude? Illegitimate birth was the fault of our ancestors that, in their unconstrained zeal for a separate nation-state for Muslims which had no parallel in the annals of history, they proved to be no match for the Machiavellian raping-game of divide et impera of the hectoring hegemons. The colonizers knew how to dangle just the right incentives and ripe-conditions before the colonized natives so that the sheep would themselves demand their own slaughter. But illegitimate fucking-around ever since, in every generation, is entirely our own fault. We inherited Pakistan – and our rulers have made the world a far worse place for it, including for the peoples of the sub-continent. The largest forced displacement which saw millions dead on either side of partition, followed by the largest forced dismemberment, followed by playing mercenary army for three decades for America’s wars destroying neighboring Afghanistan in the process in a cataclysm whose reverberations are being felt in the ‘War on Terror’ all across the globe today, and now attempting to do the same to neighboring Iran. In the process of all this anal service to empire, converting Pakistan into a Terror Central from which it has now become impossible to extricate – the legacy of Pakistan. See my 2007 Open Letter to Pakistani General, Chapter 40 of vol. 1.
I am entitled to make these truthful and empirical observations as painful as they are to hear, because I am still a concerned citizen of Pakistan, the only country whose passport I bear, the only place where my heart longs to be despite having lived in the West for the best part of my life, and while others desert the sinking ship seeking foreign passports wherever they can find them, and willingly play House Negro to get visas from the white man, I carry my green one without fear.
I know I have a rendezvous with death – and I shall not fail that rendezvous. That pledge compels me to continually break my silence. To stay deaf, mute and blind, is to be an accomplice. To be a house negroe is to be without dignity. To be of illegitimate birth is to be a bastard. To seed illegitimate births is to be a zani. To pursue virtuous piety in apathy to all this is to be complicit in crimes against humanity as its greatest enablers – as amply demonstrated in the Letter to Muslims in Chapter 2 vol. 2. To feel offended by the plebeian language I employ and not by what the elite have done to Pakistan is to be a hypocrite. I hope this frank Realityspeak is not lost on the profoundly innocent of knowledge weaned on Newspeak 24 hours a day, just as it is evidently entirely lost on the criminal uncle tom rulers of Pakistan. As serendipity would dictate however, it is a profound irony of fate that the same elite who have been instrumental in writing the Requiem Mass for Pakistan, also hold the key to Pakistan’s salvation within their grasp – with just a little bit of genuine courage to throw the tea overboard! Ultimately, all have a rendezvous with death – and none shall fail that rendezvous! Neither shall one, the God of the virginal Muslims assures one, cross the razor’s edge to heaven’s doorway when the virtuous silence of the pious created the hell on earth for everyone.

Insurgency vs. Counter-Insurgency
October 26, 2010
‘Nato supply convoys travelling through Pakistan to Afghanistan have regularly come under attack in the past, but following Pakistan’s decision to block their route through the Khyber Pass, they now face an even bigger security threat. Hundreds of tankers and trucks have been left stranded on highways and depots across Pakistan, with little or no security. Taliban militants have regularly been targeting the convoys, even when they are heavily protected. But many believe it is not just the militants who pose a security threat to the convoys. The owners of oil tankers being used to supply fuel to Nato in Afghanistan say some of the attacks on their convoys are suspicious. They say there is evidence to suggest that bombs have been planted in many of vehicles by the “Nato contractors” – individuals or companies who have been contracted by Nato to supply fuel and goods to forces in Afghanistan.’
With allegation-phrases like “many believe”, “they say”, without lending any forensic or critical factual analysis as to why ‘Nato contractors’ who work directly for the Pentagon and NATO, might be doing such a thing, the belated disclosure feeds rumors that are already ripe among the ‘untermensch’ victims that there is something terribly wrong with this ‘War on Terror’ whose principal victims since its inception continue to be innocent civilians. Why would the occupation forces want to increase the discontent of the already beleaguered people by such rumor-mongering reportage, and by the systematic controlled leaks that we see cropping up now and then which convey, from its own official records, American barbarianism upon Muslim civilians? Or more aptly framed in Michael Hayden’s vernacular, what is the purpose of this “tickling” reportage?
Our newsmedia, both mainstream print and television, and almost all of alternate media largely playing controlled dissent worldwide, are unwilling to inform the public of the military significance of “insurgency” and “counter-insurgency”. The simpleton mind of the public, these lords of public relations must feel in sympathy with the Report from Iron Mountain, remains “unexposed to the exigencies of higher political or military responsibility” and cannot therefore appreciate the value of the “considerable political sophistication” that goes into the deep calculus of hegemony as “democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.”
Poorly read of history as the commoners of course are, including the most educated ones among them with ‘scholar’ stamped upon their forehead, and weaned on the immediate gratification of the here and the now by having pursued their ‘American Dreams’ in deep slumber all of their lives, the plebes obviously naturally fail to recognize the distemper of hegemony when it is inchoate and kept brewing under covers.
They cannot believe that “Peace and its duration, like war, is determined by natural laws that in their fundamental principles do not vary nor are found wanting”. And when this law of hegemony is steamrolled into practice in the form of the lifetime of ‘War on Terror’, the only thing visible to the public is the death and mayhem with the respected narrators keeping score. But not the military precision with which red-teaming/blue-teaming insurgency and counter-insurgency are employed to perpetually engage the world in the controlled chaos of World War IV.
The factual political science reason for engaging in such permanent warfare was serendipitously discovered in the 1908-09 minute books of the Carnegie Endowment for Peace in 1953-54 by the indefatigable Congressional Investigator Norman Dodd, for the Reece Committee investigating the suspected subversion by tax-exempt foundations. Norman Dodd rehearsed from memory the occurrence of the following question from the minute books:
‘We are now at the year 1908, which was the year that the Carnegie Foundation began operations. In that year, the trustees, meeting for the first time, raised a specific question, which they discussed throughout the balance of the year in a very learned fashion. The question is: “Is there any means known more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people?” And they conclude that no more effective means than war to that end is known to humanity. So then, in 1909, they raised the second question and discussed it, namely: “How do we involve the United States in a war?”’
That same principal reason guides the presence of American soldiers all across the “Global zone of percolating violence”, as Zbigniew Brzezinski characterized these locations in 1996, where we now find Western troops engaging in the ‘War on Terror’.
So why should NATO set fire to their own convoys and blame it on the insurgents? Insurgency vs. Counter-Insurgency was forensically examined in my article last year “The Decapitation of Pakistan by its own Military!” and is reproduced below in its entirety. The reader is invited to spend some time reviewing Operation Gladio cited in its footnote.

VALIDATION UPDATE March 25, 2011: ‘331 US officials may leave Pak under secret deal over Davis‘
Zahir’s note: The government of Pakistan is even admitting that insurgency is fabricated!
‘Islamabad: A total of 331 US officials in Pakistan, most of them suspected of engaging in espionage under diplomatic cover, have been “identified to leave the country” under a secret deal between the two sides for release of American national Raymond Davis, a media report said on Thursday. … An official said that most of the suspected US officials were “involved in suspicious activities, including photographing and filming of sensitive installations like airbases (Warsak, near Peshawar and Multan), defence bunkers along the Pakistan-India border near Lahore, recruiting persons supporting their activities and launching local people for suspicious activities by offering lucrative benefits”.’

Letter to Muslims : Is Islam really the Last Obstruction to World Government and Absolute Scientific Global Dictatorship?
Friday, May 07, 2010 | Revised November 02, 2010
Please read the article “Thought police muscle up in Britain” by Hal G. P. Colebatch which appeared in The Australian on April 21, 2009, in conjunction with watching these two revealing videos of Brian Gerrish’s talks from the 2009 Lawful Rebellion Conference and the 2009 Wakeup Call Conference in the UK: http://www.tpuc.org/node/564, and this candid American documentary by William Lewis One Nation Under Siege: http://www.undersiegemovie.com.
And connect with the impetus towards the introduction of Secular Humanism as the “religion” of the New World Order! To understand what Secular Humanism really means in practice, please watch these videos. To understand its philosophical underpinnings, please read my article “Morality derived from the Intellect leads to Enslavement!” permanently linked to with this photograph: ( http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/12/morality-from-intellect-is-enslavement.html)
Caption: Secular Humanism is the Moral Relativism of the New Age: Morality derived from Intellect leads to Barbarianism and Enslavement under the false pretense of Enlightenment!
These documentaries reveal a concerted effort to subvert Theism, mainly Islam and Christianity respectively. Since this letter is addressed to Muslims, its focus is on Islam. However, a universal truth which applies to all Theism regardless of religion, and which appears to be a major impediment to the nihilism of the New World Order, is that only Theism teaches man in absolute moral codes how to overcome self-interests for higher moral cause; only Theism teaches man how to break his bonds of servitude to fellow man. And that is why the genuine practice of Theism and its absolute morality poses a real impediment to Secular Humanism and World Government which depend on moral relativism to promulgate their nihilistic agenda for the New Age.
As noted by Brian Gerrish in his Lawful Rebellion talk, all other major religious and ethnic populations in the West have become so secularized in the Western culture that only Islam today remains the effective impediment in its path – even though it is not much of one, as seen by the subversion of the Muslims and their religion! I quite agree with this introduction chapter by David Livingstone of the book “Surrendering Islam – The subversion of Muslim politics throughout history until the present day”: http://surrenderingislam.com/surrendering-islam/surrendering-islam. What Livingstone has perhaps missed in his zeal (I haven’t read his entire book), but which does not change his point about the subversion of Islam today made in that chapter, is that the subversion of Islam historically was started the day of ‘Fatah Mecca’ (and not just by the British creating sects through Machiavellian infiltrations). A dispassionate non-partisan study of recorded history itself shows that Islam was viewed differently by different peoples, many of whom converted overnight to the new religion of Arabia after a lifetime of opposition to it. As one critically examines the most momentous of times in the early days of Islam in the immediate aftermath of the death of its Prophet, even when one glosses over the first 25 years of tumultuous ad hoc political successions and rapid expansion of territories through their own la mission civilisatrice, the first dynastic imperial empire was really seeded by Abu Suffian. The mighty trader and leader of the Meccans, and the Prophet of Islam’s greatest antagonist, Abu Suffian, standing next to Ibn Abbas (the Prophet’s uncle), on the mountains surrounding Mecca on the night of ‘Fatah Mecca’ – following the conquest of Mecca without bloodshed, and the Prophet’s blanket proclamation of full pardon without seeking any retribution for the ten years of imposed military warfare by the Meccans upon the Muslims – and watching the vast field of thousands of bonfires dotting the Muslim tents in the valley below, realized that Islam potentially meant a lucrative “empire”, and told Ibn Abbas so!
From Abu Suffian, the harbinger of ill-begotten Muslim dynastic empires, to Bernard Lewis, the harbinger of fabricated “clash of civilizations”, spanning the gamut of those 14 centuries and with all the Muslim empires which David Livingstone glorifyingly mentions in-between, they all corrupted the Holy Qur’an’s designated “straight-path” of guidance in Islam, the “sirat-e-mustaqeem” of Surah Fatiha, into “empire” – one way or another.
In today’s modernity, Islam is principally subverted in the same mold by introducing “beneficial cognitive diversity” (sic!) into that original singular formulation of “straight-path”.
The sophistication of Islam’s subversion however that is evidently running circles around the Muslim mind today, relies in the employment of complex political theory called Hegelian Dialectic: invent two or more opposing and polarized ideologies (or lies), say one entirely militant, and the other entirely spiritual, and get them to clash by forcing people to choose between them while perniciously harvesting each one in the greater service of “imperial mobilization”. This is the underlying philosophy in the “good Muslim” vs. “bad Muslim” dialectic, and in Presidential statements like “either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists”. The conflict that is naturally seeded in any clash of the opposites is an opportunity for birth-panging something far greater from the burnt ashes left behind. Tortuous processes so unleashed upon the unsuspecting public can leave so much confusion and chaos in its wake that as David Ben Gurion had explained the purpose of seeding controlled chaos: “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”. And the Council on Foreign Relations proposed exactly that same modus operandi to seed world government:
‘In short, the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up, rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion’ to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.’
Watch the fabrication of the Hegelian Dialectic of “militant Islam” vs. “moderate Islam” in the following two videos. Both are officially sponsored by the ruling establishment of the Hectoring Hegemons to promulgate their respective asininity and myriad conflicts among the Muslim masses for a purpose so diabolical that it can only be fully comprehended in the domain of political theory with dynamic systems analysis, and not by studying each component separately.
This sophisticated Machiavelli is primarily the reason most Muslims, while knowing that there is something wrong with the ‘War on Terror’ in that the way the UK-US-EU axis of evil is going about it only creates more terror, remain perpetually confused by what is it that the West really wants when it arbitrarily seems to support opposites simultaneously. Inextricably caught between suicide bombers and F-16s, and between neo-colonialism and struggle for daily bread, most clutch at every strawman spun by any detracting snake-oil salesman in town. Thus we see the proliferation of conspiracy theories and plausible sounding false explanations with the concomitant “beneficial cognitive diversity” which these naturally engender, many of them deliberately created as red herrings (see Anatomy of Conspiracy Theory). And our learned scholars, news media, politicians, et. al., have all been so co-opted that they willingly lead the Newspeak chorus of ‘war on terror’, taliban, al-qaeeda song and dance routine as the House Negroes of the West. Our best minds have turned Native Informant. So who is left to explain Realityspeak to the Muslims?
As any knowledgeable person – who is not entirely deprived of mental acuity to have largely become a glorified parrot of history, often with imposing titles stamped upon his turban to lend respectability before the masses – would straightforwardly know, there are no empire’s in the religion of Islam itself. Or, for that matter in any Theistic religion that is intended to be a way of life for ordinary peoples. Only ‘religions’ of the elite have empires. Interestingly, one can trivially spot the subversion of any religion by simply observing the stances of its pontiffs to the powers under which they flourish. This is true of the religion of both the Christian and Muslim peoples throughout the ages. The subversion of Theistic theologies to support empire is empirical.
Find a word for “empire” for me in the Holy Qur’an as a commandment to seek it – as distinct from finding it in the history of the despotic Muslim rulers who did indeed build vast dynastic empires with the help of their own doctrinal scholars, from historians to narrators, no different than has been done since time immemorial. There is no basis for such dynastic imperialism in the Holy Qur’an. Indeed, Muslim civilizations, its arts, letters, and sciences, all flourished during those first 700 years after the Prophet of Islam. And these dominant Muslim civilizations also defined the “modernity” of their epoch. But so have many other civilizations of history including the present modernity of the Americans – the Classical Greeks arguably flourished even more than the Muslims, and for a lot longer period. But what does that have to do with a religion? The Muslim rulers of all these Muslim empires espoused as much moral gravitas as any other preceding or succeeding rulers in recorded history, ancient and modern. Who can deny that? The empirical fact that these Muslim empires were long running family dynasties acquired by bloodshed, and often maintained and perpetuated by the same sort of intrigues and bloodshed as Shakespeare’s Henry the whatever, is not hidden from anyone, except perhaps the Muslims.
Whereas, Islam defines itself rather precisely in the Holy Qur’an, and it is entirely about moral existence along a divinely defined path – the “sirat-e-mustaqeem” noted in its very first Chapter. Islam’s unequivocally stated aim is to give mankind the free-will of elevating itself to “Ashraf-ul-Makhlooq-aat” – the best among all creations – while fully engaged in the vicissitudes of this life as commanded in its Surah Asr. And furthermore, to also be equally free to go the converse route, be the worst of all creations. The twain, Islam and Muslims (with their concomitant histories, narratives, cultures, civilizations, and good and evil choices throughout history which has ultimately led us to our present), are not the same thing. Only Bernard Lewis is confused about it. He even opens his formidable thesis titled: “Crisis of Islam – Holy War and UnHoly Terror”, redefining “Islam” in precisely that way (which evidently has also confused David Livingstone like many other Muslims):
‘It is difficult to generalize about Islam. To begin with, the word itself is commonly used with two related but distinct meanings, as the equivalents both of Christianity, and Christendom. In the one sense, it denotes a religion, as system of beliefs and worship; in the other, the civilization that grew up and flourished under the aegis of that religion. The word Islam thus denotes more than fourteen centuries of history, a billion and a third people, and a religious and cultural tradition of enormous diversity.’ (page 1, Bernard Lewis, Crisis of Islam)
See my deconstruction of that definition in Chapter 9 of Prisoners of the Cave. Whereas, the Holy Qur’an has given a very precise meaning to the word “Islam” to exclusively designate a divine religion, and not a civilization, not a people (for which a separate word “Muslim” is used in the Holy Qur’an), and not an empire (for which there is no word in the Holy Qur’an):
‘This day have I perfected for you your religion and completed My favor on you and chosen for you Islam as a religion;’ (Holy Qur’an 5:3)
As corrupted as the majority of Muslims are today despite our vast piety and full mosques, and as convoluted and tortuous the understanding of Islam and what passes as its history (as opposed to Muslim history) has become, still, according to Brian Gerrish in his aforementioned video, Islam and Muslims are evidently the biggest impediment to Secular Humanism!! The last wall to breach in order to usher in the full “1984” like Orwellian New World Order and all the details of enslavement which it portends, including, the elimination of religion, of family, and the “state” owning the kids and raising them according to the new precepts of Secular Humanism. Hollywood movies like Logan’s Run and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, while offering fun futuristic entertainment to the masses, have also been psychologically priming us in the West to this state of human affairs, wherein, a combination of Orwellian-Huxleyan discourses coupled with mental servitude and total social engineering will simply make human revolt against the communist-style regimentation as unthinkable as the revolt of sheep against the habit of mutton eating! Aldous Huxley had (perhaps self-servingly) observed in his talk at UC Berkeley in 1961, that eliciting such compliance of the plebes has remained the focus of all social engineering throughout the ages, perhaps only to reach its culmination “to get people actually to love their servitude” within our own zeitgeist in what could only be the “ultimate in malevolent revolution”:
‘Today, we are faced, I think, with the approach of what may be called the ultimate revolution. The final revolution where man can act directly on the mind-body of his fellows. Well needless to say, some kind of direct action on human mind-bodies has been going on since the beginning of time. But this has generally been of a violent nature.
The techniques of terrorism have been known from time immemorial and people have employed them with more or less ingenuity, sometimes with the utmost crudity, sometimes with a good deal of skill acquired by a process of trial and error, finding out what the best ways of using torture, imprisonment, constraints of various kinds.
But, as, I think it was Mettenif, said many years ago, you can do everything with bayonets except sit on them! If you are going to control any population for any length of time you must have some measure of consent. It’s exceedingly difficult to see how pure terrorism can function indefinitely. It can function for a fairly long time, but I think sooner or later you have to bring in an element of persuasion. An element of getting people to consent to what is happening to them.
Well, it seems to me that the nature of the Ultimate Revolution with which we are now faced is precisely this: that we are in process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy who have always existed and presumably always will exist, to get people actually to love their servitude!
This is the, it seems to me, the ultimate in malevolent revolution shall we say.’ (Aldous Huxley, 1961 UC Berkeley, minutes 3:05 to 5:17, transcribed by Project Humanbeingsfirst http://sunsite.berkeley.edu/VideoTest/hux1.ram )
What empirically stands in the path of fully realizing that state of affairs today?
The 1984 style thought control paradigm being enacted in the US–UK is portentous of what’s to come to all of Western civilization as a very visible force – its signs are already visible all around us, thus far only disguised as the “war on terror” – see this article “War on Terror is not about Islamofascism – get with the agenda you people”, for how it is perniciously making its way into the very fabric of American and European society where the “terrorists” now “look Western”. And with this Times Square bombing plot, I just heard Retired General Michael Hayden, the terrorist “tickling” specialist as the former director of the CIA and now with the Chertoff group selling all those body-scanners to the United States, on MSNBC describing the new Al-qaeeda threat, and soon new laws will be enacted or enforced to deal with those. Already we are being conditioned to obey orders by forcing us to take our shoes off at airports, and compelling us to exhibit our anatomical perfections to the perps manning the FAST scanners. Hollywood entertainment in “Total Recall” had presaged full body scanners at airports with people going through them without a second thought a full two decades ago. And we are doing exactly that today. The RFID implants are next. Zbigniew Brzezinski, like his intellectual confrere Aldous Huxley before him, had also predicted with matching chutzpah in his seminal 1970 book Between Two Ages : America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, that:
‘In the technetronic society scientific and technical knowledge, in addition to enhancing production capabilities, quickly spills over to affect almost all aspects of life directly. Accordingly, both the growing capacity for the instant calculation of the most complex interactions and the increasing availability of biochemical means of human control augment the potential scope of consciously chosen direction, and thereby also the pressures to direct, to choose, and to change.
Reliance on these new techniques of calculation and communication enhances the social importance of human intelligence and the immediate relevance of learning. The need to integrate social change is heightened by the increased ability to decipher the patterns of change; this in turn increases the significance of basic assumptions concerning the nature of man and the desirability of one or another form of social organization. Science thereby intensifies rather than diminishes the relevance of values, but it demands that they be cast in terms that go beyond the more crude ideologies of the industrial age.’ (page 10)
This re-casting of values that “go beyond the more crude ideologies of the industrial age” with “biochemical means of human control [which] augment the potential scope of consciously chosen direction,” is the incontrovertible flag of scientific totalitarianism we see rapidly being unfurled today. While much less biochemical in its present state of deployment than in Aldous Huxley’s narrative (but not for the want of it, for example see RFID Implants), it is no less coercive than in George Orwell’s narrative. Brzezinski went on to prognosticate the “trend” in his book, and mind you with a foresight so uncannily accurate that he could only have been sitting at the same oligarchic dinner tables when the future that is already here today, was being planned into existence:
‘In the technetronic society the trend seems to be toward aggregating the individual support of millions of unorganized citizens, who are easily within the reach of magnetic and attractive personalities, and effectively exploiting the latest communication techniques to manipulate emotions and control reason.
Reliance on television—and hence the tendency to replace language with imagery, which is international rather than national, and to include war coverage or scenes of hunger in places as distant as, for example, India—creates a somewhat more cosmopolitan, though highly impressionistic, involvement in global affairs.’ (page 11)
‘Life seems to lack cohesion as environment rapidly alters and human beings become increasingly manipulable and malleable. Everything seems more transitory and temporary: external reality more fluid than solid, the human being more synthetic than authentic. Even our senses perceive an entirely novel “reality”—one of our own making but nevertheless, in terms of our sensations, quite “real.”
More important, there is already widespread concern about the possibility of biological and chemical tampering with what has until now been considered the immutable essence of man. Human conduct, some argue, can be predetermined and subjected to deliberate control. Man is increasingly acquiring the capacity to determine the sex of his children, to affect through drugs the extent of their intelligence, and to modify and control their personalities. Speaking of a future at most only decades away, an experimenter in intelligence control asserted, “I foresee the time when we shall have the means and therefore, inevitably, the temptation to manipulate the behaviour and intellectual functioning of all the people through environmental and biochemical manipulation of the brain.”’ (page 12)
‘Another threat, less overt but no less basic, confronts liberal democracy. More directly linked to the impact of technology, it involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled and directed society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite whose claim to political power would rest on allegedly superior scientific know-how.
Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control.’ (page 97)
Zbigniew Brzezinski’s elite have already embarked on achieving their political end “by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control” as witnessed today. The culmination of this path of engineered social control, the “tampering with what has until now been considered the immutable essence of man” – a tortuous combination of Orwellian and Brave New World in which “Human conduct [is] predetermined and subjected to deliberate control” – will hit the West the hardest. They were the most used to living in free societies, and thus, by the necessity of management of the masses by the controlling oligarchy, had been given the illusions of freedom more than us in the East where we were long conditioned to god, kings, and dictators. As Goethe had observed: “None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free”. I do believe that mentally, as colonized the East has been physically, it is has been far freer than the West. In the East, we don’t trust our elite, nor our government. In the West, most even refuse to believe that there is even an elite which runs their elected governments, and the vast majority “United We Stand” as is evident from 911.
The Orwellian-Huxleyan social engineering presently in the works takes away even those freedoms and those illusions – because, the West is headed towards full-spectrum dominance, but not just of the world, but of its peoples. I.e., totalitarianism the likes of which have not been seen in history. The East is not targeted for such mind-controlled totalitarianism, because, for one thing it is difficult to implement. We are too backwards as a scientifically controlled modernity. But not to fear, we are a direct target of population reduction and all the rest of Malthusian crap. See my deconstruction of NSSM-200, and Bertrand Russell’s “Impact of Science on Society”. But, as is the truism of life, we all have to go some day of course. So, arguably, at least let’s live with a mind that isn’t enslaved, even though the body may be in chains and under the constant threat of physical “shock and awe” from both the pirate suicide bombers working for the emperor as patsies, and the emperor’s drones once again bringing us the white man’s burden, its renewed la mission civilisatrice.
The only place left today to seek to make a home to raise one’s family, appears to be back in the East – yes, where we are under constant “shock and awe”. The psychological attacks and sophisticated social engineering transpiring in the West, coupled with its scientific modernity, make surviving outside the “matrix” of thought control a rather challenging if not outright impossible task in the West. Crazy, isn’t it? But crazy or not, choosing lesser of two evils has become part of the calculus of life’s decision making – whatever the decision. Only fools and ignoramuses will ignore these parameters though – for ignorance is surely bliss. Taking the “blue pill” does have its rewards.
This potential obstruction to the elite’s religion of Secular Humanism for their world government posed by Islam as a Theistic religion, and by ordinary practicing Muslims just living their ordinary family lives, is an entirely different and orthogonal dimension from the hectoring hegemons’ harnessing of “militant Islam” and “moderate Islam” described above.
Before hearing Brian Gerrish’s evidence last year and reflecting upon the matter ever since, I did not really believe Islam, the last of the great Theistic religions, to be anything other than a diabolical instrument of hegemony in the minds of hectoring hegemons in the pre and post 9/11 world – just like Communism of the USSR was before it was dismantled. Something they brilliantly subverted to create a boogieman for seeding “doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment, and patriotic gratification” in order to sustain “Imperial mobilization” on Zbigniew Brzezinski’s Grand Chessboard. But something they had only utter contempt for.
Evidently, they also find Islam to be a genuine impediment to achieving their ultimate agenda of Secular Humanism. An impediment reaching outside of their direct ability to eliminate or even control. An empire in its own statecraft of hegemony never holds genuine impediments to its primacy ever in contempt. Rather, it always deals with them as a real enemy to subdue and dominate with “military-style objectivity” and “avoidance of preconceived value assumptions”. The Report from Iron Mountain as well as the myriad Pentagon and think-tank documents such as the Joint Vision 2020 and PNAC which blithely strategize for “full spectrum dominance”, afford a glimpse into that primacy mindset.
Incredible! Muslims today, despite our pathetic servile condition slaving under the yoke of both mental and physical colonization, still potentially have something that is perceived as a real obstruction by the hectoring hegemons in their nihilist calculus of world government. That alone is an excitement I cannot contain! I have something they can’t control nor take away from me if I don’t let them. Indeed, the pithy Surah Asr of Islam, is perhaps the most potent political-spiritual weapon system in the Muslim possession if we can only learn to use it effectively. It can straightforwardly achieve what Etienne de La Boétie could not bring about in his “The Politics of Obedience: The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude”!
Islam’s prescription to end man’s voluntary servitude to tyranny, one which escaped Etienne de La Boétie’s commonsensical Discourse, is Jihad-un-nafs. Contrary to what many are led to believe as just an “inner struggle” with no outward manifestation, its true import is nothing less than revolutionary. Jihad-un-nafs principally directs us in our inner struggles to break our bonds of servitude to fellow man, to overcome our fears, apathy, and silence. It is the reservoir from which saying ‘No’ to the banality of evil springs from. Jihad-un-nafs enables us to deny our own petty as well as existential self-interests when they conflict with morality and ‘higher purpose’. For, it is only self-interests that trump morality which co-opt us and perpetually enslave us to any tyrant. Once such inner-struggle is underway, when fears and allegiances to falsehoods start melting away, when determination sets in which no denigrating labels may circumvent, when the fear of the loss of paycheck or confinement to state hospitality centers can no longer preempt moral stance, then, and only then, doors automatically open up, feet automatically start marching in the streets, mouths automatically come un-stitched, and in the limit, one fearlessly stands-up before the D9-Caterpillar bulldozer like Rachel Corrie, and before the armies of tyrants like David before Goliath, Hussein before Yazeed, Rosa Parks before KKK, Viva Palestina before Israel, …. As the late George Bernard Shaw had wisely observed: “We are made wise not by the recollections of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.” That responsibility becomes easier to shoulder when our self-interests can no longer trump our moral callings.
Pious peoples continually ask me what can they do as the justification for their silence and apathy. As consummate victims of the banality of evil, evidently they are so saddled with self-interests that they either pretend to not see the clear path as they rather stay busy in their various ritual acts of seeking heaven instead of stand-up to wrong-doings, or, suffer from a myopia characteristic of self-absorption and/or indoctrination. Well, Heaven, if there is one in the future, is surely denied to those who help create hell on earth today – for, evil only flourishes when well-intentioned people remain silent spectators and do nothing to stop it. Often times they even directly collaborate in it as part of their daily grind, collectively culminating in horrendous evils – the banality of evil! Jewish scholar Hannah Arendt had already explored that aspect of it in copious detail in the context of the Third Reich in 1963. Just two score years later, I too had dwelled upon it in my very first piece of public writing in the context of the Fourth one. For our purposes here however, let’s briefly examine this idea of apathy logically within the Theistic beliefs of the Muslims themselves. I have examined indoctrination and the reigning twisted epistemology which blinds one to it elsewhere.
Do pious Muslims filling their mosques in relative comforts while humanity everywhere is oppressed at the altar of the lusts of the Hectoring Hegemons, think that Jahanam will be the abode of only the few tyrants and their soldiers of fame and fortune who directly inflicted the evils? That their own souls are spotless since they stayed busy in ritual piety waiting for Allah?
If it is true that tyrants flourish only with the assistance of the majority who silently comply, and empiricism and history both lend substantial evidence to this view (Etienne de La Boétie almost 500 years ago gave a compelling description of it in his Discourse cited above), then, it logically follows that the first-cause enablers of tyranny and its spread throughout the lands is the silently spectating apathy of the peoples! Those who enable crimes are no less culpable than those who commit crimes.
The inescapable logic of this condemns the first-causers to be the backbone fuel of the very inferno they so wish to escape with their obsession with ritual piety while Creation burns. If the god whom pious Muslims worship is a rational god, then this must be true – for, only in courageously rising to break the bonds of servitude to fellow man is Islam’s “Ashraf-ul-Makhlooq-aat” birth-panged into existence. If however, their god is irrational, as many learned scholars proclaim when they attribute arbitrariness to god’s justice due to its self-proclaimed omnipotence, then is such a god anything more than Zeus, the anthropomorphic god of ancient Greece? Why fall in prostration to Zeus 5 times each day?
Even Nuremberg, as fallible as that Military Tribunal was in its administration of ‘victor’s justice’, focussed on the first-cause (self-servingly) ignoring the Allied bombings of civilian population centers and dropping of atomic bombs. Nuremberg called the Nazi aggression the first-cause of war, “the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”
When the first-cause is always held more culpable even in our fallible courts on earth, do Muslims think that in the Court of the Most Just the first-cause enablers will get a free-ride?
Many thinking Muslims presume that the god they worship is absolute in its Justice. Otherwise, they feel that the whole notion of Accountability on the Day of Judgment in the Hereafter becomes meaningless gibberish, devoid of substance. Indeed, were that not the case, God’s Justice would be reduced to the whimsical moral relativism that is already being thrust upon us in these times as propositioned by a US Supreme Court Justice: “Nothing is more certain in modern society than the principle that there are no absolutes, that a name, a phrases, a standard has meaning only when associated with the considerations which give birth to nomenclature. To those who would paralyze our Government in the face of impending threat by encasing it in a semantic strait-jacket, we must reply that all concepts are relative.”
Moral codes in Theism are indeed encased in the absolute semantic strait-jacket so feared by all tyrants across space and time and therefore, remain forever under attack and subversion. Islam, like all Theistic religions, has already answered the question of bondage to fellow man in showing the way to its effective severing.
It is even part of the cryptic formula recited by the adherent daily, without evidently understanding any of it: “La ilaha ilallah” (Arabic: لا إله إلا الله) – “there is no god but God”. Islam’s clear prescription of bowing in servitude only to the One God of Truth is completely conditioned upon first breaking the bonds of servitude to all other gods of falsehoods. Silence and apathy therefore, in the face of the ubiquitous spread of oppression as in our time, is directly bowing before the god of tyranny permitting it to spread unchecked, thus becoming its first-cause enablers! Islam calls the worship of (or allegiance to) multiple gods Polytheism. The abode of polytheists, it oft proclaims, is Jahanam! 2+2 still equals only four, even when the pious might insist upon 5!
And, it is the most ironical of empirical paradoxes that it is not the theists by and large, but the moral atheists who have courageously risen to shoulder that “responsibility for our future”! Perhaps the pious might strive to learn from them to value this existence more than the next one; to endeavor to make it less hellish here in order to avoid the next one; to be more concerned with affairs here than of the Hereafter; and in doing so perhaps come to learn the real intent of Theism – from these moral atheists! It would be a well-deserved divine irony if moral atheists who stood by their fellow man without fear of hell or favor of heaven, come to constitute the largest citizenry of any heaven if God does turn out to exist! They will end up with the last laugh in either case! That’s all I can say to the pious silent bystanders of modernity.
East or West, theist or atheist, being aware of the real challenges for those who choose to not merely exist in a dream-state, I believe, will prepare one to meet them more effectively. The videos cited at the top of this letter and the following article reproduced below, empirically show that a formidable totalitarian system is being engineered even as we speak. But I am afraid that most Muslims remain unaware of all this concerted social engineering, as many continue to sing the empire’s ‘War on Terror’ song against the Islamofascists. Soon, Muslims might be surprised to find their own religion banned in the West and their very identity as Muslim being associated with “terrorism”. In a generation or two, there won’t be any overt Muslims. A far cry?
Not if this Oped in Pakistan’s Dawn of May 06, 2010 is portentous:
‘Hussain immigrated to the United States in 2003 and said his children had once even asked if they could change their names due to the image of their homeland in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks.’
‘Pakistanis pose as Indians after NY bomb scare: NEW YORK: Pakistani merchants and job seekers in the United States, still reeling from economic hardship since the Sept. 11 attacks of 2001, are posing as Indians to avoid discrimination in the wake of the Times Square bomb attempt.’
Hollywood has already interjected that thought of banning the Qur’an into Western consciousness in the movie “V for Vendetta”. Soon, that demand might actually be heard on mainstream television. It ought not to be surprising if Muslim faces are presented in the forefront demanding it! Such a demand simply cannot be plausibly made, or effectively implemented, in the East! Judging from the riots which break out on the “mere” cartooning of the Prophet of Islam – O yes, we are surely slated for population reduction, the “useless eaters” of humanity, while we apathetically wait for Allah to change our condition! (Holy Qur’an 13:11)

The Curious Case of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui and Imperial Mobilization
Postscript on sentencing: Justice is a delicacy best served cold, preferably in cold blood, in full service to the Hectoring Hegemons!
September 26, 2010
Caption Harmless innocence Melt, Flours of all hue, and without thorn the rose: Is this merely the Ugly Side of US Law? The matching facade of Pakistan’s outrage over Aafia’s Treatment
“Nothing is more certain in modern society than the principle that there are no absolutes, that a name, a phrases, a standard has meaning only when associated with the considerations which give birth to nomenclature. To those who would paralyze our Government in the face of impending threat by encasing it in a semantic strait-jacket, we must reply that all concepts are relative.” — Justice Vinson, U.S. Supreme Court, 1951 AD
Justice is a delicacy best served cold, preferably in cold-blood, in full service to the Hectoring Hegemons – just ask jurist doctor Rafia Zakaria, General Secretary, Board of Directors Amnesty International USA!
You have a right to ask: if the government is so concerned with “Significant Developments in Terror Threats Since 9/11, Officials Say”, then, why must “they persist in fighting it precisely in the same way to create more of it,”? ( See Chapter 18 of vol. 2)
Because: ‘War on Terror’ is not about ‘Islamofascism’ – Please get with the real agenda you people! ( See Chapter 15 of vol. 1 )
But simple minds will choose to not understand this – that mantras alone can’t efficiently enable “imperial mobilization”:
Successful social engineering also requires actual defining acts of terror that can believably foster “conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public’s sense of domestic well-being”, and cleanly separate time into a “before” and an “after”.
The New Pearl Harbor of 9/11 was necessary to shatter “the public’s sense of domestic well-being.” It immediately accomplished that separation of time into epochs, and instantly cemented the long running mantra of the new boogieman du jour, the “The Roots of Muslim Rage.” Bernard Lewis had planted that seed in the Council on Foreign Relations’ Foreign Affairs magazine a full decade before 9/11, self-servingly concluding: “It should now be clear that we are facing a mood and a movement far transcending the level of issues and policies and the governments that pursue them. This is no less than a clash of civilizations.”
As Hitler too had well understood, mantras must be backed by real acts of fabricated terror in order to realize their full potential as effective PROPAGANDA which can mobilize a nation to do what they would normally not accept to do.
And it also needs recruits, preferably young angry men and women whose “Muslim Rage” can be harvested, especially for suicide missions.
The hectoring hegemons need that “empire’s justice” which has been juridically administered to the poor Pakistani scapegoat Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, so that it becomes more and more believable to blame future acts of fabricated terror on “radicalized Muslims”, “home grown terrorists”, “Islamofascism” et. al., in order to continue to justify the on-going baby-step construction of domestic police-state.
The entire world must be eventually governed as a global police-state because: “World government could only be kept in being by force.”
To anyone with even half a brain, but one which is not entirely uncongenial to reflection, it must have been rather obvious from day-one that in the light of public revelations of the egregious circumstances of Dr. Aafia’s bizarre capture and the subsequent orchestration of her show trial, any “justice” administered to Dr. Aafia Siddiqui would only be comparable to the proclamation of the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland: “off with her head”. It must also have been apparent to those inclined to perusing statecraft rather than watching television or reading newspapers for their knowledge of current affairs, that the show trial of Aafia Siddiqui was designed primarily to serve an agenda of the state. Namely, one of calculatingly exercising the “high degree of doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment, and patriotic gratification” deemed necessary for a “sustained exercise abroad of genuinely imperial power.” A careful reading of Zbigniew Brzezinski’s The Grand Chessboard makes the political science and the various mantras behind “imperial mobilization” abundantly clear. The Only Truth About US Justice is that Justice is in the Service of Empire!
“It’s all in the wrist”
Caption “It’s all in the wrist”, said Kamal Khan in Roger Moore’s 007 Octopussy, as he proceeded to repeatedly put wool over his simpleton victim’s eyes with his clever sleight of hand. But James Bond wasn’t living in a fool’s paradise of “the crowd of the simpletons and the credulous.” He knew smoke and mirrors scam when he saw one. Beating Kamal Khan at this own game with a slyer wit, he blandly observed to the marveling simpleton after pocketing his winnings: “It’s not really in the wrist you know!”
Editorial on verdict: The Only Truth About US Justice is that Justice is in the Service of Empire!
Saturday, February 13, 2010 | Updated February 26, 2010
Turned down by all newspapers, from the New York Times to Pakistan’s Dawn and Daily Times.
Yvonne Ridley’s anguished opinion ‘Truth about US justice’ has appeared worldwide including in the Pakistani press. Ms. Ridley bemoans the travesty of justice in the US court’s pronouncement of its guilty verdict on the frail, tortured daughter of Pakistan, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui. The veteran journalist is perhaps unaware of the import of the following revealing words of a US Supreme Court justice which were uttered in 1951:
“To those who would paralyze our Government in the face of impending threat by encasing it in a semantic strait-jacket, we must reply that all concepts are relative.”
This lesser known utterance by the highest lawman of the United States came right on the heals of the victorious Allies administering the absolute victor’s justice at Nuremberg to the defeated Nazis with these famous words of its chief prosecuting counsel for the United States, Robert H. Jackson:
“… we are not prepared to lay down a rule of criminal conduct against others which we would not be willing to have invoked against us.”
Indeed, if there is one monumental statement made at Nuremberg, it was possibly this:
“… the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole”.
In other words, Justice Robert H. Jackson averred that all the destruction of civilian cities from Dresden, Hamburg, … to Tokyo in Allied fire-bombings which deliberately killed millions of innocent civilians, was not culpable crimes against humanity because its sin and criminality was absorbed by the Supreme International Crime of the first aggression!
Culpability for “all the evil that follows” is always solely apportioned by victors to the account of the first aggressor (the one who is defeated).
Even the aggressor’s pretext for its first invasion of Poland as its own preemptive self-defense against terrorism (the Gleiwitz terrorist incident aka Operation Canned Goods), was outright rejected at Nuremberg as merely the self-inflicted inside-job to synthesize a Machiavellian pretext for extending German Lebensraum. As Hitler had put it to his Generals in Bavaria:
“[I will] give a propagandist reason for starting the war [and don’t] mind whether it was plausible or not. The victor will not be asked afterward whether he told the truth or not. In starting and waging a war it is not the right that matters, but victory.”
Justice Robert Jackson unequivocally affirmed that the Nazi quest for full spectrum dominance of Europe was illegal by international law, under any pretext:
“The intellectual bankruptcy and moral perversion of the Nazi regime might have been no concern of international law had it not been utilized to goosestep the Herrenvolk across international frontiers. It is not their thoughts, it is their overt acts which we charge to be crimes.”
And in order to ensure that these legal words of immense import were never re-semanticized for “imperial mobilizations” by future ‘ubermensch’ Reichs, but rather, that these concepts remained inviolably “encas[ed] in a semantic strait-jacket”, the very definition for the word ‘aggressor’ was ab initio proposed by Justice Robert Jackson as a state which first initiates:
“invasion of its armed forces, with or without a declaration of war, of the territory of another State. … If certain acts of violation of treaties are crimes, they are crimes whether the United States does them or whether Germany does them, and we are not prepared to lay down a rule of criminal conduct against others which we would not be willing to have invoked against us.”
That is quite an objective measure in international law for ascertaining who is the most guilty aggressor party, and who to fry first for crimes against peace, for monumental crimes against humanity.
So, even if Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is actually guilty as charged; is indeed the heinous mastermind of Al-Qaeeda (a Hegelian Dialectic which is examined elsewhere); or even if she was merely a dupe recruited by the Talibans/Al-Qaeeda as their waterboy (just as the CIA recruited Muslims from around the world to fight as the lauded Mujahideen against the USSR with proclamations of “god is on your side”); by the same yardstick as was used to hang the Nazis while awarding medals of bravery to the Allies who killed millions of innocent civilians in the defense of Europe against the aggressor, all the evil which has followed from the terrorist acts of an individual in aiding and abetting the militant-response against the invasion forces in Afghanistan is similarly legally subsumed by the monumental acts of state terrorism! The superpower’s utilization of the 911 terrorist incident to “goosestep the Herrenvolk across international frontiers” is little different from the Nazis’.
Therefore, in any fair justice system interested in bringing real criminals closer to their day of accounting, before Dr. Aafia can be charged for her criminal conduct of responding to the invading forces in Afghanistan by her frail physical might, the leaders of the ‘free world’ and their financial supermasters seeking their own “Lebensraum” must be put on trial for their “supreme international crime … [of] goosestep[ing] the Herrenvolk across international frontiers.”!
To anyone with even half a brain, but one which is not entirely uncongenial to reflection, it must have been rather obvious from day-one that in the light of public revelations of the egregious circumstances of Dr. Aafia’s bizarre capture and the subsequent orchestration of her show trial (instead of simply assassinating the accused if she was such a diabolical threat to mankind), any “justice” administered to Dr. Aafia Siddiqui would only be comparable to the proclamation of the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland: “off with her head”.
It must also have been apparent to those inclined to perusing statecraft rather than watching television or reading newspapers for their knowledge of current affairs, that the show trial of Aafia Siddiqui was designed primarily to serve an agenda of the state. Namely, one of calculatingly exercising the “high degree of doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment, and patriotic gratification” deemed necessary for a “sustained exercise abroad of genuinely imperial power.” A careful reading of Zbigniew Brzezinski’s The Grand Chessboard makes the political science and the various mantras behind “imperial mobilization” abundantly clear.
Therefore, at least for these abnormal people who actually try to comprehend the forces which drive terrorism, both the pirate’s as well as the emperor’s, there is nothing surprising in the guilty verdict, nor in the conduct of the servile Pakistani rulers leading up to the verdict, and nor in the utterances of the US Ambassador to Pakistan, Ann Patterson. To have expected anything else after all the careful preparations that went into enacting this puppetshow, the show trial and its attendant media demonization of Dr. Aafia, only betrays immense naiveté of the inner-workings of empire.
In my view, the prima facie ‘Truth about US justice’ is that “justice” is in the service of empire, as it always has been! The madam Ambassador of the United States to Pakistan has only executed the core purpose of her diplomatic post rather faithfully in the service of her empire.
Justice in these times, like everything else, including science, politics, history, literature, cinema, news (which is often indistinguishable from cinema), and of course political-science, is continually put in the diabolical service of empire. The only veritable truths are the imperial proclamations of the white man – from who did 911 to Global War on Terror to Global Warming to Global Epidemics to Global Financial Collapse to Global Governance. These history-constructions by incremental faits accomplis are the sine qua non for one-world government and cannot be constrained in any moral or legal “semantic strait-jacket”.
It’s not like the beleaguered Pakistanis don’t know it – we even have the East India Company’s achievements to guide us – but apparently, we, the ‘untermensch’, never quite seem to learn its lessons. And that’s really the only pernicious secret of the enduring hidden strength of the golem behind all its guns and butter offerings to its victims before slaughtering them. The veritable strength of its ‘Samson locks’: our own price!
The former Director of the ISI, Brig. Tirmazi, narrated the following about us Pakistanis in his 1996 book Profiles of Intelligence:
‘… It would be fair to ask what we [the ISI] did to counter the US machinations? Well we did not, and could not do any thing beyond reporting to the highest authority in the country. There are reasons for our inaction:
One, neither the ISI nor the IB is designed or equipped to counter the machinations of a Super Power.
Two, an important factor is our own price. A lot has been said and written by some of our American friends about the price of a Pakistani. Dr. Andrew V. Corry, US Counsel General at Lahore, once said, “Price of a Pakistani oscillates between a free trip to the US and a bottle of whisky.” He may not be too far wrong. We did observe some highly placed Pakistanis selling their conscience, prestige, dignity and self-respect for a small price.’ (page 45, emphasis added)
That evergreen description however has not captured the grotesque reality of the English-enabled ‘intellectual Negroes’ flourishing in Pakistan today. Their “price” is not measured in such pecuniary terms. Read its full examination here:
Given this tortuous backdrop of modernity, the point of the unsubtle resignation request made by the courageous Ms. Ridley to show some moral backbone among the errand boys and girls of empire, even as it is merely being rhetorical, is entirely meaningless even in its rhetoric for two reasons: 1) it is a moral request in a global governance system which is beyond good and evil, one which brazenly asserts “hegemony is as old as mankind”, and which puts morality itself directly in the service of empire; and 2) given that the highest-order-bit of the systemic disease among the ‘untermensch’ has apparently already been apportioned as our national destiny!
Crises are defining moments for nations, and for a people. Some rise to it. Others fall before it. Pakistan as a nation has evidently decided the latter course of action – and this is palpably apparent from the statements of Pakistan’s own Ambassador to Washington:
‘“Foreign relations are not discussed in poetry, … Saddam Husain’s last speech was also full of poetry but it could not save him or his nation”’, and that ‘relationships between nations are based on ground realities’.
Read its full deconstruction here: http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/11/bringing-back-thelost-zen-to-pakistan.html
While it is true that most in Pakistan are very upset by what has befallen Dr. Aafia Siddiqui as yet another victim of “imperial mobilization” – only one among the millions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Pakistan’s Tribal-Belt, all along the ‘arc of crisis’ in the “global zone of percolating violence”, etc. – the handful who did publicly protest this latest visitation of empire’s justice upon a frail tortured woman in a nation of almost 200 million, did so only symbolically. And many an English-enabled ‘house Negro’ only expressed faith in empire’s Justice. The English language Pakistani press is full of their editorials which span the gamut of intellectual servitude from heaping scorn on any public expression of empathy with the victim, to outright blaming the victim. And this combined show of moral bravado despite the fact that Dr. Aafia has become the inextricable symbol of the summation of all the abhorrent injustices purveyed upon women in wars – from rape to rape – and no mere words can ever capture her indescribable agony! Yet, most Pakistanis among the ‘field Negroes’ daring to express a modicum of moral outrage only displayed our fine moral tenor from the comforts of our living room. Just as we did when Iraqi women were being raped, tortured, and disappeared in the service of empire not too long ago. Then we returned back to our daily grind.
Symbols of morality, like talismans, are no match for hard orchestrated events of “imperial mobilization”. And especially when arsonists are running all the fire brigades in a nation where its masses are more closely tied to their daily bread than to matters of state or national survival. The apathetic public well understands that many more arsonists eagerly await in the wings to take the place of their predecessors. The masses are well aware that the Pakistani elite, the ever patriotic praetorian guards, and their coterie of miserable sycophants have already learnt that while one’s abject service to empire can sometimes be hazardous to one’s existential wellness, it also routinely calls for new faces in many a chief’s seat and presents the fabulous opportunity to loot and plunder anew in the name of patriotism.
Therefore, Ms. Yvonne Ridley’s impassioned moral hint to the distinguished American Ambassador to Pakistan:
‘She should then pick up the phone to the US president and tell him to release Aafia and return Pakistan’s most loved, respected and famous daughter and reunite her with the two children who are still missing. Then she should re-read her letter of August 16, 2008 and write another … one of resignation.’,
will only deprive madam Ambassador of a well-earned livelihood and comfortable retirement for no fault of her own. She merely faithfully discharged her service contract to her own empire. And it will do nothing for Pakistan either, for we, as a nation, are serving exactly the same interests. When these aren’t even our own!
I humbly recommend instead that madam American Ambassador be the next in line to be awarded the glorious Freedom Medal by the White House. President Obama has already received his Nobel Peace Prize.

Zahir Ebrahim Responds to Rafia Zakaria’s and Amnesty International’s Call for ‘prosecution of Taliban leaders for war crimes’
Preamble: Saturday, September 25, 2010 | Letter: Wed, August 11, 2010
The following letter is Project Humanbeingsfirst’s overly polite August 11, 2010 response to jurist doctor Rafia Zakaria J.D., General Secretary, Board of Directors Amnesty International USA, on her enacting absurdities upon absurdities in the service of empire – and against her own peoples in Pakistan and the United States.
This latest round is as the General Secretary at Amnesty International, charging the fabricated enemy for war crimes against humanity right out of George Orwell’s recipe for convincing a people to continue fighting and dying in the perpetual war against the dark murdering armies of Eurasia, without even mentioning the Hectoring Hegemons who militarily invadadmitting it publiclyed other nations and are routinely committing war crimes while ! Her previous round at foisting imperial absurdities upon the plebes among mankind as the empire’s “House Negro” was examined in Letter to Editor: The politics of ‘Reinventing the Taliban’ goes through a core-lie! April 07, 2010.
Can Rafia Zakaria J.D., also a candidate for Ph.D. in political science, be so innocent of knowledge like the rest of the tens of millions of mainstream Americans who were easily misled into “United We Stand” with their hectoring hegemons? Can she really be so Newspeak blind to the distemper of hegemony as a jurist and political scientist, so damn innocent in the ways of Machiavelli and her own field of study? On the path to imperial glory, did she become so averse to the pain and suffering of the ‘untermenschen’ in Iraq and Afghanistan that she cannot see what the United States has done to those poor defenseless nations for its “imperial mobilization”? Or, does she rightly know which side her bread, accolades, appointments, and lucrative career is buttered?
The inescapable conclusion, at least for those not sitting on the fence, is that only such uber learned peoples shamelessly groveling for fame and fortunes at the feet of the “massa” are congenially appointed to the various prestigious Board of Directors of empire’s own instruments of social engineering. Like Daniel Pipes was once appointed to head the Institute for Peace by President George W. Bush. The difference though being that both the latter are among the “massa” themselves, laboriously carrying the “white man’s burden” to the ‘untermensch’ as their “la mission civilisatrice”, to benevolently give to the barbarians a more civilized “moderate Islam” instead of their abhorrent “militant Islam” which attacked America on 9/11. It is understandable that the ruling elite would engage in such Newspeak based on their overarching agenda to subvert their own democracy which, in the absence of “conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public’s sense of domestic well-being”, remains “inimical to imperial mobilization”. For immigrants from the land of the ‘untermensch’ to echo the hectoring hegemons’ message, is akin to joining them in their mission as the “merchants of aggression.”
Watch the following merchants of aggression, despite their hubris and their Newspeak, eventually take their “final plunge in ignominy” in another epoch as the victors vociferously claimed the objectivity of their justice: “they are crimes whether the United States does them or whether Germany does them”! Changing epochs does not change the nature of the crimes of aggression which constitutes the “supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole”.
If the Taliban are guilty of war crimes, then, by the very definition of war crimes, those who invaded their nation are far more guilty of a more heinous crime, one which contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole!
But of course, no hectoring hegemon and their associate chanting the various Mighty Wurlitzer tunes, at the peak of their hubris can ever think of themselves suffering that day of ignominy – as is amply evidenced in the following statement of the United States’ own Supreme Court Justice in 1951, right after the victor’s justice had been juridically administered with great fanfare to the vanquished at Nuremberg: “Nothing is more certain in modern society than the principle that there are no absolutes, that a name, a phrases, a standard has meaning only when associated with the considerations which give birth to nomenclature. To those who would paralyze our Government in the face of impending threat by encasing it in a semantic strait-jacket, we must reply that all concepts are relative.”
Victor or victim, all in the world must know and be continually reminded of, that baboons wear no clothes even when they may steal the white man’s sunglasses to look cool. Today, the baboons, white, brown, black and stripped, have stolen some clothes to pass themselves off as hominids concerned with the plight of their victims. They come to you weeping at the funeral demanding justice after having killed off your family. And they come to you as the “peace makers” after creating the most mayhem on earth! While the baboons may try to lie to themselves in the mirror, we know what they are. So I can at least agree with Rafia Zakaria and the Amnesty International on their profound conclusion, if not their analysis, that “Unless the international community takes a stand on this issue, Afghan civilians will continue to believe that they will be abandoned by the world and left to endure another regime of barbarism.”

Hello. Yes. [In response to your announcement letter received in my mailbox,] the higher order bit of the matter further requires you go up the hierarchy of war criminals, and not only try to hold monumental criminals accountable for past crimes, but also prevent future ones:
I never received your response to this [an article version of emailed Letter to Editor April 07, 2010]
which challenged your narrative and showed it to be an absurdity!
Why not show that challenge to be itself an absurdity if you think it absurd enough to not even respond?
As for Amnesty International [article appended below], I am persuaded by my study of empire and its statecraft to conclude that this organization and many others like it are merely controlled dissent, playing controlled opposition while employing genuine persons seeking justice, presumably like yourself, being made a gullible patsy. See this Open Letter and please examine it in the context of Machiavellian political science – one of creating treadmills for dissent to run on, really fast, and brilliantly get nowhere:
In fact, empiricism indicates that Amnesty International has become, or always was since its inception, merely another tune of the Mighty Wurlitzer – what that is is explained in the following article in case one is unfamiliar with the statecraft of deception [original article]:

Subject: Amnesty International calls for prosecution of Taliban leaders for war crimes
My post on our blog today
Taliban Leaders Should Be Prosecuted for War Crimes
Sanam Gul was a widow, 35 years old and pregnant. According to news reports she was kept in captivity for three days before being shot to death in a public trial by the Afghan Taliban. The execution took place in the Qadis District of the rural Baghdis province in Western Afghanistan.
The “court” that ordered the punishment, found Sanam Gul, also known as Bibi Sanubar, guilty of having an illicit affair, proof of which was her pregnancy. She was sentenced to 200 lashes and then executed. The punishment was carried out by Mohammad Yousuf, the area Taliban commander amid a crowd of onlookers.
Sanam Gul’s death comes soon after the chilling Aug 7 executions of ten medical aid workers who had been returning from a trip to provide free medical care to remote regions of Afghanistan.

These barbaric theatrics meant to intimidate and terrify local populations are not novel tactics for the Taliban. In the time that they controlled Afghanistan, from 1998-2001, such public floggings and executions were frequent occurrences in towns controlled by the group. In addition to such tactics of terror which misuse concepts of Islamic law to instate a reign of terror, the Taliban are also guilty of increasingly bloodthirsty killing campaigns that kill hundreds of Afghan civilians.
A U.N report released on August 10 revealed that civilian casualties caused by the Taliban have increased nearly 31% in the first six months of 2010. This means that over 3,000 Afghan civilians have died in the shootings, killings, suicide bombings that the Taliban carry out with impunity in areas which they control.
In the first half of 2010, the executions and assassinations of civilians by the Taliban and other insurgent groups increased by over 95% to 183 recorded deaths compared to the same time last year. The victims were usually accused of supporting the According to Staffan De Mistura, Special Representative of the Secretary General of the U.N “Afghan children and women are increasingly bearing the brunt of this conflict; they are being killed and injured in their communities in greater numbers than ever before”.
In the ten years since the beginning of the Afghan war, and in the years before when the Taliban controlled huge chunks of the country, the world has watched while they have wrested all sense of security from Afghan civilians. One of the biggest chasms in the worldwide response to the human rights abuses carried out by the Taliban has been the inability to coalesce around a unifying concept of international justice that would hold non-state groups like the Taliban accountable. Historic reliance on the nation state model has meant an initial hesitance to apply the mechanisms of shaming to non state groups which kill the innocent and use religious concepts to terrorize entire populations.
It is this view that perceives only nation states to be human rights abusers that must change drastically for groups like the Taliban to be held accountable for their brutality. The lack of an existing system of justice in Afghanistan means that unless international mechanisms of justice get actively involved in the situation, Afghan civilians will remain helpless before the bloodthirsty campaign of the Taliban. Because of this Amnesty International is calling for the investigation of Taliban crimes so that they may be prosecuted for war crimes.
The initiation of a prosecution of Taliban leaders that so brutally executed Sanam Gul and have so cruelly taken the lives of thousands of other Afghan civilians must be held accountable. Such accountability is crucial to insure that these same war criminals are not promoted to positions of power in any post-conflict set up. Given that the United States, Afghanistan and other members of NATO are currently engaging in such discussions, it is imperative that the human rights abuses carried out by Taliban leaders against civilians be an integral part of their agenda.
Unless the international community takes a stand on this issue, Afghan civilians will continue to believe that they will be abandoned by the world and left to endure another regime of barbarism.

Letter to Editor: Rafia Zakaria and The politics of ‘Reinventing the Taliban’ go through a core-lie!
Wednesday, April 07, 2010
Another case study of the brilliance of Machiavellian Political Science
Once the hectoring hegemons have created a core-lie and got people to believe or accept it, namely, that ‘war on terror’ is real and “our war”, then many truths within the core-lie can be fabricated, and also are created due to their own natural dynamics with proper black-ops channeling to mobilize insurgency and then officially fighting it as “counter-insurgency”. A cook-book recipe for fabricating “revolutionary times”, for indeed, “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”! A self-sustaining system dynamics comes into existence which is closely managed and continually harvested to sustain “imperial mobilization”.
These dynamics are the puppetshows of harvest that Rafia Zakaria is commenting on in her DAWN article of April 07, 2010: “Reinventing the Taliban”, while she is strategically silent on the core lie itself:
“Yet to view the controversy as an isolated case connected only to the veracity of the events depicted in the video would be to miss the trajectory of the transformation being planned for the Taliban by the political and military leadership of the country. With the completion of the Pakistan military’s Rah-i-Nijat offensive in Swat, and the near culmination of operations in North Waziristan, the endgame of a long and bloody counter-insurgency operation is now visible.”
Rafia Zakaria is obviously quite familiar with the vulgar propagandists’ crucial tool in their vast arsenal of behavior modification tool-chest:
‘The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects, by lowering what Mr. Churchill calls and “iron curtain” between the masses and such facts or arguments as the local political bosses regard as undesirable, totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have done by the most eloquent denunciations, the most compelling of logical rebuttals.’ — Aldous Huxley in the (circa 1946) Preface to his 1931 novel Brave New World
So, I ask Rafia Zakaria to refute the core-lie as unraveled by this scribe in the following letter to editor ( http://tinyurl.com/native-informants ) using her most compelling of logical rebuttals if she believes my deconstruction to be false. Or, explain her silence on the core-lie. Because, I do believe, vulgar propagandist she is not!
But I will take a bet that contrary to my belief, she won’t because she is, perhaps inadvertently, part of the same con-game of introducing “beneficial cognitive diversity”, as are all the rest of the native-informants and house negroes of Pakistan whose new crowned queen of hearts appears to be this Samar Minallah.
Convince people of absurdities and get them acquiescing to atrocities – and here we have them turning a blind eye to the greatest atrocity of them all: “the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole”, from which “all the evil that follows” is therefore on the account of those who “goosestep the Herrenvolk across international frontiers” with the show of first-aggression by the “invasion of its armed forces, with or without a declaration of war, of the territory of another State”.
Any law professor who does not know their Nuremberg – well, perhaps it is only the same old ‘likkha-parrha jahils’ of modernity coming out of America’s top IVYs and becoming the ‘Epsilon Semi-moron’ to ‘Alpha’ administrators in the class hierarchy of the Brave New World of Atlas Shrugged.
From Huxley to Orwell to Russell to Strauss to his mistress Ayn Rand, all have not been merely prescient, but rather have [self-servingly] explained the actual blueprint of the future of totalitarian scientific dictatorships where commonsense is replaced by zerosense, and moralsense by secular-humanism!
Thus, one may repeatedly rehearse the deconstruction of evolving puppetshows and burlesque adventures of Alice in Wonderland, as does this scribe, over and over and over again, but the history’s actors have already moved on ex post facto to create the new reality for Alice. Each time incrementally inching the world closer and closer to the overarching endgame of central totalitarian dictatorship in a world government, while we are merely left to just study what they atrociously did in the previous puppetshow:
‘We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.’ — Senior Bush Advisor, The New York Times, October 17, 2004
Such is the power of Machiavellian political science!

911 and Imperial Mobilization Redux – A Tutorial
September 11, 2010
“ 911 is is a point of departure for me … I see the deliberate hands of the American-Israeli intelligence agencies and/or “Second Foundationers” from deep within the American ruling elite in orchestrating this New Pearl Harbor. For a country that can sense what is deep within the bowels of the Earth and in the farthest reaches of the heavens, that seeks “full spectrum dominance” of air, land, sea, space, cyberspace, et. al. in its own military doctrines, and that publicly warns in its strategy documents that the only way for it to embark on this “imperial mobilization” is an increased military budget that can only come about in a “new pearl harbor”, 9-11 has only one reality – self-inflicted. — Chapter 2: Don’t Ever Ask “Why is it possible to hate America” Prisoners of the Cave
“ I am betting that when knowledge of the crime of the emperor comes to them, and their complicity in it is realized by them, that like Lady Macbeth, the American public will be torn by their good conscience, that they will be as unable to remain “innocent of knowledge” as Lady Macbeth, and will endeavor to right the wrongs done in their name by their successive governments. As Arundhati Roy put it in a speech: “Yours is by no means a great nation – but you could be a great people – history is giving you the chance – seize the time.” I am betting that the conscience of its own people will prove to be the real fifth column in the United States of America. Perhaps somewhat idealistic, but it is precisely ideals that seem to be lacking in the collective wisdom of this nation, where mostly everything is viewed from the distorted prism of the pragmatic, the expeditious, the instantly gratifying, and the “might makes right” imperial sight. Its injection into the American polity cannot be a bad thing. I don’t expect everyone to necessarily agree with my work, the point of it being not to make you agree with me, but to motivate you into examining your invisible chains in the hope that if you earnestly look for them, you will likely find them. — Postscript Prisoners of the Cave
“ This irrational behavior is only possible because we, the citizens of the nation, permit it. It is no longer a question of controlling a military-industrial complex, but rather, of keeping the United States from becoming a totally military culture. — The United States: A militarized society, Jerome B. Wiesner, president emeritus MIT, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Aug 1985, pg. 104
And just as his predecessors did, President OBAMA too reiterates who the enemy is, even threatening the public to not question America’s official sacred story of who the enemy is, and cleverly lumping “questioning 9/11” with “justifying 9/11”
“ I am aware that there is still some who would question, or even justify the offense of 911.
But let us be clear. Al Qaeeda killed nearly 3000 people on that day. The victims were innocent men, women, and children from America and many other nations who had done nothing to harm anybody.
And yet Al Qaeeda chose to ruthlessly murder these people, claimed credit for the attack, and even now states their determination to kill on a massive scale.
They have affiliates in many countries, to try to expand their reach.
These are not opinions to be debated. These are facts to be dealt with.
And, by the verdict of your own logic of 3000 innocent victims killed by “Al-Qaeeda” on 9/11, what of the several million INNOCENT CIVILIAN VICTIMS barbarically murdered by the United States in Afghanistan and Iraq in retaliation for 9/11?

“ all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets. — Voltaire, Welcome Letter
Until of course, Victor’s Justice catches up to the “apostles of death and hate”
“ – we are not prepared to lay down a rule of criminal conduct against others which we would not be willing to have invoked against us. — U.S. Justice Robert H. Jackson, formulating the finer points of law as moral absolutes for administering victor’s justice at Nuremberg, Minutes of Conference Session of July 23, 1945, International Conference on Military Trials : London, 1945
“ – the only conceivable end for these merchants of aggression, and as they plunged the world into a blood bath, it is fitting that they take their final plunge in ignominy! — Universal Newsreels: 21 Nazi Chiefs Guilty, Nuremberg Trials 1946/10/8
“ To those who would paralyze our Government in the face of impending threat by encasing it in a semantic strait-jacket, we must reply that all concepts are relative. — Justice Vinson, U.S. Supreme Court, 1951, re-formulating the finer points of law in Newspeak, Justice in the Service of Empire
“ Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities — Voltaire, The Enduring Power of Machiavellian Political Science
And as the sighted can already see, like the “Big Brother” of OCEANIA, the rulers of United States of America using their own Newspeak and the savagery of fabricated wars against “barbarians”, transformed their own nation into a Police State while its indoctrinated masses, its pathetic “House Negroes” and immigrant “Uncle Toms”, insanely cheered “United We Stand” against Islamofascism.
Of course, also only the sighted will ever see that from President George W. Bush to President Barrack Obama — More faces changed, more they remained the same!
Caption Vanilla or Chocolate is merely the icing on the devil’s cake!
“ The system is not only broken, it was crippled at birth – for it is so easily hijackable – from Wounded Knee to Iran, with new “Pearl Harbors” cleverly used for “imperial mobilization” from the USS Maine to 911 to the new nookular ‘911’ that President Bush keeps warning the Americans and the world about in these ominous words as late as February 13, 2008: “Good morning [America]. At this moment, somewhere in the world, terrorists are planning new attacks on our country. Their goal is to bring destruction to our shores that will make September the 11th pale by comparison.” It is one continuous predatory imperative, from the Truman Doctrine, to the Carter Doctrine, to the Reagan Doctrine, and now to the Bush Doctrine.

“ What is the point of this analysis and all this verbage? The point is a matter of life and death for nations. That is the point of this. Let me be very precise. Either the United States, or Israel, are poised to attack Iran, as noted by many commentators in the World press,… This is March 2007. I have two imperatives before me: A) I do not wish to hear in 2010 that there was an “intelligence failure”, that it was another Gulf of Tonkin, or some other new contrivance from the imaginative and fertile mind of the hectoring hegemons. — Dialog Among Civilizations – Whytalksfail When the Hectoring Hegemons Are Running It And What To Do About It (see Chapter 18 in vol. 2)
Since the doctrines of aggression variously couched in Newspeak have remained the same despite the changing presidential faces in the White House, the AMERICAN PUBLIC’S REALPOLITIK to bravely extract their nation from the jaws of Big Brother’s Fourth Reich also remains the same:
1) Firstly, anything, including all ‘nuclear terrorist acts’ on American soil, or anywhere in the world, all shocking revelations by whistleblowers, all leaks in newspapers, and all phantasmal mantras that distract from the afore-stated goal, regardless of how compelling the reasons, must be treated by the unwary and gullible American public and its intellectual dissenting-chiefs, as red herrings, pretexts, and deceptions for premeditated “imperial mobilization” by their nation’s rulers.
2) Secondly, if there is reason for the United States to nuclear decimate any country or any peoples in purported ‘self-defense’, the American peoples must demand a ratification of the decision to go to war through a public referendum – let its great “populist democracy” speak directly in the modernity of the 21st century before it is called upon to make its sacrifices, before it is called upon to pay its taxes to fund the war, and before it is called upon to acquire innocent blood on its hands!
3) Thirdly, draw the soldiers, officers and war-technicians from the pool who vote for war! If they can vote yes to invade other nations and wantonly shatter the tabula rasa of a ‘lesser humanity’, then they must also first be willing to sign up for doing it themselves – instead of having a draft of economic conscription. Every ‘yes’ voting home in America must have at least one ‘patriot’ from the immediate family show up on the front-lines without exception – or their ‘yes’ vote is void!

Wikileaks and the Mighty Wurlitzer – A Note on the Mighty Wurlitzer
May 2009 | Wikileaks Update August 28, 2010
What is the ‘Mighty Wurlitzer’?
It used to be the honorific of Frank Wisner, the first chief of political warfare for the Central Intelligence Agency, used to describe the C.I.A.’s plethora of front organizations and newsmedia stooges that he was capable of playing (like a great organ with many keyboards) for synthesizing any propaganda tune that was needed for the day. See Operation Mockingbird ( http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKmockingbird.htm ).
The fact that such an omnipresent Message-Machine is not ancient history but very much current affairs, is underscored by this NYT headline “Behind TV Analysts, Pentagon’s Hidden Hand”, Sunday, April 20, 2008 ( http://tinyurl.com/6qhgfg ).
Therefore, today, I use the term ‘Mighty Wurlitzer’ as a metaphor to pluralistically refer to the same message-machine, i.e., the intelligence apparatus for manufacturing consent and controlling dissent, and its concomitant conscious manipulation of peoples’ thoughts, feelings, actions and in-actions, in order to serve the primacy interests of the ruling-elite. The latter are, invariably, also the de facto owners of the complete messaging-system now even more globally ubiquitous than when Frank Wizner played the world for a fool.
This ‘grand organ’ is now able to even more effectively synthesize, implant, and reinforce, all the right set of beliefs (myths) among the entire world’s public – by suitably combining ‘events’ with imaginative ‘expos’ writing – which appropriately primes the world populations to acquiesce to the oligarchic agendas. While playing this orchestra is now an integral part of all state-craft, its major musical themes are entirely determined by the behind the scenes owners of the system. While some might refer to the underlying techniques as propaganda and psy-ops, ‘Mighty Wurlitzer’ singularly captures the messaging-system controlled under a unified purpose of command which is both highly compartmentalized and cellularized. Only the Mighty Wurlitzer knows the entire tune.
What this means is that not all who willingly cooperate with the Mighty Wurlitzer in synchronistically humming its themes are knowingly being purveyors of its myths and deception. Many of its most shrill echoers are often well intentioned functionaries who are fed different motivating myths at different levels in the hierarchy – sometimes the lie is different at every level – such that it suitably motivates each according to their own predilection, professional station, and mission statement.
The Mighty Wurlitzer operates on the core premise which has been empirically shown to psychologically motivate most human action. That premise was elegantly captured in the following insightful observation made at the so called “Terrorism Study Group”, that “’Public Assumptions’ Shape Views of History: Such presumptions are beliefs (1) thought to be true (although not necessarily known to be true with certainty), and (2) shared in common within the relevant political community. The sources for such presumptions are both personal (from direct experience) and vicarious (from books, movies, and myths).” Successfully implanting such presumptions and pre-suppositions among any group is to motivate its overall actions in accordance with those implanted beliefs. Thus, many intelligent peoples for whom it is otherwise inexplicable to understand why they persist in ‘United We Stand’ with absurdities, are motivated to react sympathetically to those absurdities.
To barely catch a glimpse of how it’s partially done, the following description by Col. Fletcher Prouty from the Preface to the first edition of his 1973 book “The Secret Team” is instructive:
‘There is another category of writer and self-proclaimed authority on the subjects of secrecy, intelligence, and containment. This man is the suave, professional parasite who gains a reputation as a real reporter by disseminating the scraps and “Golden Apples” thrown to him by the great men who use him. This writer seldom knows and rarely cares that many of the scraps from which he draws his material have been planted, that they are controlled leaks, and that he is being used, and glorified as he is being used, by the inside secret intelligence community.
Allen Dulles had a penchant for cultivating a number of such writers with big names and inviting them to his table for a medieval style luncheon in that great room across the hall from his own offices in the old CIA headquarters on the hill overlooking Foggy Bottom. Here, he would discuss openly and all too freely the same subjects that only hours before had been carefully discussed in the secret inner chambers of the operational side of that quiet Agency. In the hands of Allen Dulles, “secrecy” was simply a chameleon device to be used as he saw fit and to be applied to lesser men according to his schemes. It is quite fantastic to find people like Daniel Ellsberg being charged with leaking official secrets simply because the label on the piece of paper said “top secret,” when the substance of many of the words written on those same papers was patently untrue and no more than a cover story. Except for the fact that they were official lies, these papers had no basis in fact, and therefore no basis to be graded top secret or any other degree of classification. Allen Dulles would tell similar cover stories to his coterie of writers, and not long thereafter they would appear in print in some of the most prestigious papers and magazines in the country, totally unclassified, and of course, cleverly untrue.
In every case, the chance for complete information is very small, and the hope that in time researchers, students, and historians will be able to ferret out truth from untruth, real from unreal, and story from cover story is at best a very slim one. Certainly, history teaches us that one truth will add to and enhance another; but let us not forget that one lie added to another lie will demolish everything. This is the important point. Consider the past half century. How many major events — really major events — have there been that simply do not ring true? How many times has the entire world been shaken by alarms of major significance, only to find that the events either did not happen at all, or if they did, that they had happened in a manner quite unlike the original story?’
Coldly implicit in Col. Prouty’s afore-quoted empirical statement: “and the hope that in time researchers, students, and historians will be able to ferret out truth from untruth, real from unreal, and story from cover story is at best a very slim one”, is the Machiavellian notion of sewing faits accomplis in current affairs by straight-jacketing all public discourse in deception, and leaving the ferreting out of ‘truth’ to future generation of scholars and historians when separating myths from the calculus of hegemony can at best only be a bogus academic exercise entirely irrelevant to reversing the faits accomplis already sewn. See Convince People of Absurdities and get them Acquiescing to Atrocities: The Enduring Power of Machiavellian Political Science ( http://tinyurl.com/historys-actors ).
A pertinent example of Col. Fletcher Prouty’s fabricated leaks noted above, is the Wikileaks’ July 2010 disclosures of ‘The Afghanistan Papers’ which revealed nothing new. Wikileaks has always been a rather transparent Mighty Wurlitzer ops. It is trivial to see through the absurdity of its existence despite it promoting itself as being a sort of watchdog upon the empire, and therefore, ostensibly, being inimical to its unbridled quest for “full spectrum dominance” – just like Al Jazeera television based in Qatar, which, absurdly enough, exists in the same nation as America’s CENTCOM headquarters, but still operates unchallenged bringing all the visual details of the gory crimes of empire inflicted by CENTCOM and its NATO Allies upon innocent Muslim civilians. The intended purpose of course being social engineering – the sine qua non for waging modern warfare upon civilian populations which can span the gamut from manufacturing consent to manufacturing pretexts and ripen conditions for “clash of civilizations” – in order to sustain the otherwise untenable “imperial mobilization”.
How can one tell manufactured reportage and fabricated leaks from the real stuff? How can one see through the Mighty Wurlitzer?
As daunting as it might appear to the mainstream television watcher, it is in fact rather straightforward for those unencumbered by blind faith in governments and its statecraft. Just look for the core-lies and unquestioned axioms of empire that are typically retained in the “leaks” and reportage which, in order to sound credible, often openly expose what is mostly already known anyway or judiciously employ some variation of “Limited Hangout” wrapped in a veneer of dissent or ‘freedom of the press’.
It’s the exact same recipe as is used by all the other fabricated and controlled dissent assets of empire when they are not outright spinning patent lies, for spinning half-truths requires far more brilliance. It is not for nothing that James Jesus Angleton, Head of CIA Counter Intelligence 1954-1974, is quoted in the 1992 BBC-2 Documentary on Operation Gladio: “Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the State”.
The core-lies retained in the Wikileaks’ disclosure – which I call ‘the Afghanistan Papers’ – is to once again reaffirm that there is a real nemesis called “Osama Bin Laden”, that the “war on terror” is real, that it is being inflicted upon the West from Pakistan-Iran nexus, and to re-substantiate the handoff of former President George W. Bush’s clairvoyance to the Obama Administration that “If another September 11 style attack is being planned, it probably is being plotted in Pakistan, and not Afghanistan”! That, when such a “planned” attack transpires, it “will make Sept. 11 pale by comparison”. See: ‘Bin Laden’: Key enabler of “imperial mobilization” and nuclear attack on Iran-Pakistan ( http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2008/04/binladen-keyenabler-nuclearattack.html ).
The successful handoff of “imperial mobilization” to Pakistan and Iran, now further sprightly underscored by Wikileaks’ documents, is once again demonstrated by President Obama’s Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s July 2010 remark to the BBC as quoted by Reuters: “There are still additional steps that we are asking and expecting the Pakistanis to take. But there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that should an attack against the United States be traced to be Pakistani, it would (have) a very devastating impact on our relationship”. And that is merely just another echo from the Obama Administration of what the Pakistanis themselves have been made to parrot the past 9 years, as demonstrated by its own Ambassador’s remark in 2008: ‘[On] Wednesday, a media report quoted Pakistan’s envoy to Washington as saying that US leaders had warned Islamabad that if the United States suffered an attack that was traced back to Pakistan Washington would retaliate. “Those (statements) have been made,” Ambassador Hussain Haqqani told editors and reporters at The Washington Post. “We want to make sure that it doesn’t come to that.”’.
To show Pakistan’s unflinching willingness to do as much more as was asked, the Ambassador of Pakistan had further stated in an interview to Reuters in 2008:
‘Pakistan would attack Osama bin Laden the moment it had reliable intelligence on the Al Qaeda leader’s whereabouts, Ambassador Husain Haqqani said on Wednesday. Haqqani also said he was confident Pakistan could help foil any Al Qaeda plans to attack the United States, although he did not know of any right now. “A cooperative effort between all the allies, and that includes Afghanistan, Pakistan and the United States and NATO – I think we can thwart any potential plans for an attack,” Haqqani said in an interview with Reuters. He said Pakistani intelligence had helped defeat many of the “several dozen” Al Qaeda plots detected worldwide since the September 11, 2001, attacks, but government officials knew of no immediate threats to the United States. Haqqani said Pakistan would act on its own against Al Qaeda if necessary. “If Pakistan, Afghanistan or the United States had specific intelligence on the location of Osama bin Laden, they would have acted on it. No reservations would have come in the way of action on that, and none will even in the future,” he said. “If any of us had that actionable intelligence we would all act. We would act separately, we would act in tandem, we would act cooperatively – we would act.”’
So, could these self-serving ‘Afghanistan Papers’ have been any more convenient as a casus belli, carrying forth the same core-lies now entering its tenth year? If Wikileaks’ dramatization grabbing all the world’s headlines isn’t an officially sponsored “modified limited hangout” for exactly that purpose of reinforcing the core-lies, then the White House not even bothering to stop the New York Times – whose own motto is ‘All the news that’s fit to print’ – from publishing it, even giving it “all got gold stars” as the Salon put it, is downright inexplicable: “So, uh … why was all of this information classified and top secret? If it’s old news, and it just confirms what “everyone” already knows, what was the rationale for keeping it classified and calling WikiLeaks all sorts of mean names for publishing it?”
What would it matter afterwards, after Iran and Pakistan have been bombed, what were lies and what was truth? Did the bogus mea culpa by the 2005 Presidential Commission on intelligence failure, the Iraq Study Group’s disingenuous conclusion: “We conclude that the intelligence community was dead wrong in almost all of its prewar judgments about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction. This was a major intelligence failure,” reverse the decimation of Iraq? Did the New York Times 2008 revelation of Pentagon’s Message Machine after ‘all the barbers in town already knew it’, return back to its silos each and every cruise missile that was dropped upon the innocent civilians of Iraq?
That is the real import of the craftsmanship of the Mighty Wurlitzer! To engineer a fait accompli by manufacturing consent among the gullible masses and dissent among the rabble rousers, leaving future scholars, historians, and the odd malcontent to laudingly study the ashes left behind by “history’s actors”. A diabolical modus operandi of democratic statecraft which the Mighty Wurlitzer’s operators even brazenly brag about: ‘“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”’ (Ron Suskind, New York Times, Oct. 17, 2004)
Those attempting to see through its fog of deception when a fait accompli can still be averted – before missiles have left their silos, before pen has been put to legalisms – are labeled as ‘kooks’ and ‘conspiracy theorists’, their efforts infiltrated (as in cointelpro), and energies defocussed by introducing what’s cynically called “beneficial cognitive diversity”.

There is an undeniable categorical imperative before the Western peoples today. With the escalating belligerence towards Iran and the dismantling of Pakistan palpably on the visible horizon, will the profoundly innocent of knowledge in the West allow themselves to be fooled once again into more criminal aggression upon civilian populations in the name of ‘War on Terror’? See: ‘War on Terror’ is not about ‘Islamofascism’ – Please get with the real agenda you people! ( http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/03/war-on-terror-not-about-islamofascism.html ). Or, will they courageously choose to not be deceived by the Mighty Wurlitzer’s many ruses at every level which ultimately justify the unquestioned core axioms of “imperial mobilization”?
As this is a self-study note – because satisfying one’s curiosity by a modicum of due diligence is the order of business rather than reading synopsis and excerpts – the following suggested minimal reading is useful in comprehending the pernicious role of intelligence assets which perpetually infiltrate the media and the academe. You will learn how society is manipulated in the direction of its ruling-elite’s agendas, how ordinary peoples serving in positions of influence in the institutions of the ruling-elite involuntarily succumb to freely promulgating the oligarchs’ agendas, and most importantly, why it is almost impossible for ordinary decent peoples, too busy pursuing their ‘American Dreams’, to perceive this sophisticated manipulation which goes on 24×7.

Zahir Ebrahim, Prisoners of the Cave, 2003, Chapter 6: How does the US News Media end up towing the line? ( http://tinyurl.com/nnk26a ). The Military-Industrial-Media corporate complex with interlocked board memberships, and opaque stock ownership by institutional investors the largest of which is the U.S. Government (see Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports at http://CAFR1.com ), represent the same vested interests which control the Policy Planning of the CIA and the Pentagon as the Primacy Imperatives of the sole superpower, the United States of America. These interlocking for-profit corporations and their majority stock-holders who profit from war, primacy, and hegemony, also own and control the news media, news distribution, the entertainment industry, and essentially all outlets of exercising sophisticated Hegellian Dialectics of Mass Deception upon a not too knowledgeable population. With increasing consolidation of information synthesis, packaging, and delivery into fewer and fewer corporate hands owned and controlled by a handful of people, the ideological alignment of their interests makes a sham of the much touted ‘fourth pillar of democracy’. Therefore, operationally speaking, the government is almost trivially able to influence news to manufacture consent for its primacy imperatives in the same way that the oligarchs are able to select the government to implement their agendas in an entirely bipartisan way. Rather than the White House issue daily directives to the editorial staff of major news organizations as in any vanilla dictatorship, the editorial staff and the corporate owners a priori know “All the news that’s fit to print.” With the right placement of assets and stooges in the news organizations, the tactical synchronization of worldwide propaganda is made superlatively effective – as the ‘War on Terror’ against ‘Militant Islam’. Also see Chapter 4: The Role of Mass Media in Empire Building ( http://tinyurl.com/m5mbrl ).
Additionally, see the watered down ‘non-conspiratorial’ model of self-censorship to stay gainfully employed, and the self-selection of like-minded blind-sighted journalist-editorial-staff in any news organization as per the often unstated overarching imperatives of the news organization in which one automatically knows what flourishes and what doesn’t, in Noam Chomsky’s Manufacturing Consent, 1986. Chomsky’s treatise is applicable more to the incestuous self-censorship of shallow but well-intentioned mental-midgets – the bulwark of the newsmedia – rather than the calculating mercenarial agendists and vulgar propagandists selectively planted in key positions for psy-ops by the ‘Mighty Wurlitzer’. More insidious than “manufacturing consent” however, is “manufacturing dissent”, something which Noam Chomsky has unfortunately written little about, leaving it to his nondescript student to unravel in “Weapons of Mass Deception – The Master Social Science” ( http://tinyurl.com/la5bv6 ). Witness the manufactured dissent in real action wherein it retains the same core-axioms as manufactured consent, in “My beef with the stellar congressman Hon. Ron Paul” September 15, 2009 ( http://tinyurl.com/nn6dth ). Also see “Open Letter to Hon. Ron Paul Supporters” October 29, 2008 ( http://tinyurl.com/lawra8 ).
What permits all this manipulation and deception to occur? It is the deliberate gaping-hole left in the ‘fourth pillar of democracy’ by the founders of the world’s greatest modern Republic on paper – a colossus in practice which has today taken over the world with its systems, values, and McDonalds backed by McDonnell Douglas ( http://tinyurl.com/mcwwuv ) whereby, the once ‘hidden hand’ of the market which went so hand-in-hand with its ‘hidden fist’ is now nakedly un-gloved – as explained in Prisoners of the Cave, Chapter 7: Resistance to Empire – New Directions ( http://tinyurl.com/m22r3s ).
See the spin on Hugh Wilford’s book the Mighty Wurlitzer by Michael Warner in Intelligence in Recent Public Literature, as if willful public deception for a ‘greater cause’ was only the moral and categorical imperative of the past very judiciously engaged in by superlative ‘presidents and key Congressmen [who] held “a fairly sophisticated point of view” that understood that “the public exhibition of unorthodox views was a potent weapon against monolithic communist uniformity of action.” The CIA subsidized freedom in order to expose the lies of tyrants—and then winced silently when that freedom led to an occasional bite on America’s hand.’ The full URL is revealing: https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/csi-studies/studies/vol52no2/pdf/U-%20Studies%2052-2%20-Jun08-MightyWurlitzer-Web.pdf ( http://tinyurl.com/nrn8yq )
This self-study would be incomplete without acquiring some familiarity with the name Edward Bernays. See his 1928 seminal classic on the art of behavior manipulation and involuntary persuasion titled ‘Propaganda‘ ( http://tinyurl.com/ls7fcs ). Read it online here. Watch Bernays describe his mind-craft briefly here. With more time on one’s hands, watch this four hours long, four-part BBC4 documentary titled “The Century of Self” featuring the work of Edward Bernays, the Freud family, and the political psychoanalysts: part-1 ( http://tinyurl.com/yfh9gfa ), part-2, part-3, part4. These mass manipulation techniques for both “engineering of consent” and its dialectical “manufacturing of dissent” are part and parcel of the Mighty Wurlitzer’s ordinary persuasion toolkit. More specialized psychological tools are continually explored and refined in many think-places in the West under the sanitized vernacular of “Human Relations” and “Public Relations”, including presumably at the Tavistock Institute in London. Listen to Aldous Huxley’s take on where mind-behavior manipulation techniques are rapidly headed, wherein people will simply end up loving their own servitude, titled “The Ultimate Revolution” ( http://tinyurl.com/ahuxley ), March 20, 1962, at Berkeley.
Today, the Edward Bernays led comprehension of mass psychology, and its sophisticated manipulation as an essential instrument of state-craft ( http://tinyurl.com/endless-mindfck ) – the social “engineering of consent” – is empirical, and quite diabolical. This is betrayed, for instance, not only in the 1996 book by Zbigniew Brzezinski titled “The Grand Chessboard” where he noted his now famous maxim “Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization”, but also in the 1997-98 report by the so called “Terrorism Study Group” which accurately predicted the chain reaction of reaction-response cycle to ‘Catastrophic Terrorism’, predicated upon the psychological axiom ‘Public Assumptions’ Shape Views of History: “Such presumptions are beliefs (1) thought to be true (although not necessarily known to be true with certainty), and (2) shared in common within the relevant political community. The sources for such presumptions are both personal (from direct experience) and vicarious (from books, movies, and myths).” The following passage from History commons ( http://tinyurl.com/mlzfns ) lends prima facie evidence ( http://tinyurl.com/6qhgfg ) to how the Mighty Wurlitzer diabolically harnessed the ‘searing’ or ‘molding’ event of 911, the “new Pearl Harbor”, to successfully implant the public myths for the never ending “War on Terror” ( http://tinyurl.com/dmr8gr ) deemed necessary by political psychoanalysts for overcoming the democratic instinctual aversion to “imperial mobilization”:
“An act of catastrophic terrorism that killed thousands or tens of thousands of people and/or disrupted the necessities of life for hundreds of thousands, or even millions, would be a watershed event in America’s history. It could involve loss of life and property unprecedented for peacetime and undermine Americans’ fundamental sense of security within their own borders in a manner akin to the 1949 Soviet atomic bomb test, or perhaps even worse. Constitutional liberties would be challenged as the United States sought to protect itself from further attacks by pressing against allowable limits in surveillance of citizens, detention of suspects, and the use of deadly force. More violence would follow, either as other terrorists seek to imitate this great ‘success’ or as the United States strikes out at those considered responsible. Like Pearl Harbor, such an event would divide our past and future into a ‘before’ and ‘after.’”
Another immediately pertinent text-book example of Edward Bernays’ influence on social engineering with the help of the Mighty Wurlitzer, is the psychological mantras and existential pretexts created to rapidly bring the “Ultimate Revolution” to fruition with microchip RFID implants in human beings. See Swine Flu: The Ultimate Revolution in the Making and the Note on Myth Construction ( http://tinyurl.com/2byhwml ). Climategate is clearly yet another Mighty Wurlitzer operation: see Between Global Warming and Global Governance – Concern for Environment is a ‘Hegelian Mind Fck’! ( http://tinyurl.com/cb74c6 ). Also see Reflections on Modernity, Climategate, Pandemic, Peer Review, and Science in the Service of Empire ( http://tinyurl.com/science-and-empire ).
Finally, the question of reform continually arises among the antagonists of the Mighty Wurlitzer, the idealists, and the “malcontents”. They would rather pretend that some rational “reform” can do away with the Mighty Wurlitzer altogether. The following response to the question raised by Robert Jensen, Professor of Journalism, “Can journalism schools be relevant in a world on the brink?”, September 15, 2009, injects a doze of reality-check: “Re-titling can perhaps make the problem-space more apparent: Can journalism schools be relevant in a New World Order of one-world government?” ( http://tinyurl.com/kpgkth ). Edward Bernays brilliant successes at mass behavior manipulation has conclusively shown that masses are typically not motivated into action by information, rather, by appeal to their irrational sub-conscious mind, to their fears, and that they remain quite susceptible under hidden emotional manipulation. It appears to this cynic, that unless the much wonted fourth pillar of democracy, journalism – the watchdog upon the corridors of power – adopts these same manipulative tactics of the oligarchs in order to even begin to play its theoretically assigned role in a theoretical constitutional republic, it is destined to largely remain a tool of signaling and communication among the elite themselves, and of the masses’ manipulation, regardless of any window dressing of reform! To substantiate this egregious point, see table 3 titled “APPROXIMATE USE OF MEDIA” in Zbigniew Brzezinski’s seminal book “Between Two Ages – America’s Role in the Technetronic Era”, page 14 ( http://tinyurl.com/nqlxk5 ). The readership data for the printed press like the NYT, while quantitatively dated, is qualitatively even more attuned to the hypnotic reality of television mass media today where useful advance information can sometimes be gleaned in the inside pages of the elite’s own printed press – provided one has learnt how to parse the elite’s language – bur rarely if ever on mass television.
When Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives to orchestrate a one-world government is the ingrained doctrine among the ‘ubermensch’ and their instruments, it is trivial to come up with any rationalism for even the most atrocious barbarism inflicted upon the ‘untermenschen’. Convince the public of absurdities and one can get them to acquiesce to any atrocity – from outright murderous invasion of other nations to torturing their civilians in the most horrendous conditions, to getting their own citizens to accept giving up their civil liberties without a sigh. Nothing new here – ‘standard 007 issue’ of the hectoring hegemons! That same Mighty Wurlitzer and its paymasters however would be chewing on cyanide capsules in another situation. It is best not to forget that. Baboons wear no clothes – even when they steal the sunglasses.

Anatomy of Conspiracy Theory
March 07, 2010 | Updated August 31, 2010
Caption Conspiracy theories exist in the realm of myth, where imaginations run wild, fears trump facts, and evidence is ignored. As a superpower, the United States is often cast as a villain in these dramas.
Caption NSC 10/2 directed CIA to conduct “covert” rather than merely “psychological” operations, defining them as all activities “which are conducted or sponsored by this Government against hostile foreign states or groups or in support of friendly foreign states or groups but which are so planned and executed that any US Government responsibility for them is not evident to unauthorized persons and that if uncovered the US Government can plausibly disclaim any responsibility for them.” – Furthermore, in order to preempt such uncovering, to continually seed red herrings and false theories; to delegitimize their unraveling by labeling them as kookish “conspiracy theories”; to defocus public energies by introducing “beneficial cognitive diversity”, fabricated leaks of half-truths which retain core-lies, and “Limited Hangout” mea culpae, all fed through the “Mighty Wurlitzer” messaging machinery; to brand the few daring and persistent unravellers of “truth’s protective layers” as deniers of reality suffering from “emotional or mental illness”, an “oppositional defiant disorder” exhibiting a pattern of “negativistic, defiant, disobedient and hostile behavior toward authority figures” and therefore a threat to themselves and to society; and when all else fails, to eliminate these ‘malcontents’ who refuse to tow the official line by branding them “domestic terrorists”.
Some may rationally ponder that how is it, that such a long running global conspiracy for world government as outlined in Project Humanbeingsfirst’s report “The Enduring Capitalist Conspiracy for World Government”, can be kept alive across centuries and across geographies. This brief paper examines that question.
Noam Chomsky had once observed an insightful nature of such “conspiracies”, as the open shared natural goals stemming from the very nature of its definition, which could therefore, no more be termed a conspiracy than both GM and Ford endeavoring to maximize their profits at all cost be termed a ‘global corporate conspiracy’.
I have always added to that, the equally un-remarkable observation that a hungry lion anywhere in the world pouncing upon a lamb is similarly no global conspiracy by the world’s lions to eat up all the lambs on the planet. That is just the nature of the bestial predators when its “might defines right”. The higher cerebral concepts of “right”, “wrong”, “moral”, immoral”, etc., do not even exist among any primal predators, for these only behave according to their nature. Pious platitudes, if they could be argued by the lion or the snake for instance, would in fact only be disseminated to the lambs and the mice to make them an even easier morsel to acquire!
The only thing that occasionally deters such exercise of primacy is a collective natural response like the one observed in the “Battle at Kruger” park. Indeed, the quest for the holy grail of extracting voluntary servitude from the masses of mankind is the key idea of cultivating a willingly compliant public in order for the illuminated ones becoming their stewards for life. In Bertrand Russell’s’ timeless characterization, to extract voluntary servitude such that: “a revolt of the plebs will become as unthinkable as an organised insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton.”
Thus we observe that from Plato to Nietzsche, from the philosopher-king to the ‘ubermensch’, all have argued the necessity of ruling upon the sheepish masses as the ‘divine’ imperative of the “enlightened ones”. Indeed, Zbigniew Brzezinski even sub-titled his seminal book “The Grand Chessboard” with its egotistical subtitle “American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives”, merely extending that idea of ‘ubermensch’ rule from the most “enlightened ones”, to the most powerful sole-superpower!
The same theme exists among the “Chosen Peoples”, to deem their primacy upon the goyem their inherent nature, their divine destiny. The ‘ubermensch’ are suckled these lessons in their mothers’ milk to acquire those imperatives across generations in perhaps the same way as the generations of corporate executives and CEOs who inherently know that they need to continually enhance the valuation of their company’s stock performance in a capitalist system.
So, when these ‘divine’ ubermensch creatures who are beyond good and evil, self-servingly behave in their primal predatory natural manner across time and space, across evolution or creation, are they being “conspiratorial”?
In the Chomsky-Ebrahim nomenclature, perhaps not.
In the Ron Paul nomenclature, it is merely a shared “Conspiracy of Ideas” in which “CFR exists, the Trilateral Commission exists”, and that, it is only “an ideological battle” wherein:
“some people believe in Globalism, and others of us believe in national sovereignty; and there is a move on toward a North American Union just like early on there was a move on for a European Union and it eventually ended up. …
These are real things, it’s not somebody made these up, it’s not a conspiracy, they don’t talk about it, and they might not admit about it, but there has been money spent on it …
So it’s not so much a secretive conspiracy, it’s a contest between ideologies; whether we believe in our institutions here, our national sovereignty, our Constitution, or are we going to further move in the direction of international government, more UN. You know, this country goes to war under UN Resolutions. I don’t like big government in Washington. So I don’t like this trend towards international government …
But it’s not so much it’s a sinister conspiracy, it’s just knowledge is out there, if we look for it, you’ll realize our national sovereignty is under threat!”
In the United States’ legalese nomenclature, breaking of a “federal statute” by at least two or more persons working in collusion (and when caught), is defined as “criminal conspiracy” and “federal crime”. According to the Columbia Encyclopedia, it is criminal whether or not Congress imposed criminal sanctions on the activity itself. A conspiracy need only be proved by “circumstantial evidence” even “if it violates the rules against hearsay evidence”:
Conspiracy: “in law, agreement of two or more persons to commit a criminal or otherwise unlawful act. At common law, the crime of conspiracy was committed with the making of the agreement, but present-day statutes require an overt step by a conspirator to further the conspiracy. Other controversial aspects of conspiracy laws include the modification of the rules of evidence and the potential for a dragnet. A statement of a conspirator in furtherance of the conspiracy is admissible against all conspirators, even if the statement includes damaging references to another conspirator, and often even if it violates the rules against hearsay evidence. The conspiracy can be proved by circumstantial evidence. Any conspirator is guilty of any substantive crime committed by any other conspirator in furtherance of the enterprise. It is a federal crime to conspire to commit any activity prohibited by federal statute, whether or not Congress imposed criminal sanctions on the activity itself.”
According to such legalism, smart conspirators, if powerful enough, could affect the enaction of conducive federal statutes, or prevent the enaction of adverse ones, that would enable them to get away with many morally reprehensible systems and acts. The Federal Reserve System for instance, falls into this category. A legalized extortion racket to enslave the public in perpetual debt for the issue and supply of their own national currency. Similarly, bootlegging is a federal crime one decade, a respectable business the next! And internationally, it is the enaction of laws under WTO which defines what is criminal and what isn’t – not the raping and harvesting of developing nations that goes on under its conspiratorial rubric!
Thus suffice it to say, the word “conspiracy” even has legal semantics, albeit rather limited. It is limited because it is easy to circumvent an abhorrence and call it legal when the king makes the laws.
But the multitudinous connotations of this word do not stop there. It also has a ‘tin-hatted’ or ‘kookish’ implication in furtherance of the devilish art of political science based state-craft. This was indeed implied by Congressman Ron Paul in his afore-quoted speech when he stated regarding the North American Union: “These are real things, it’s not somebody made these up, it’s not a conspiracy, … So it’s not so much a secretive conspiracy, …”.
In fact, some of the best cloaking devices for clandestine covert-operations and hidden agendas have been invented by the most brilliant minds – here is one exposition for instance from Ezra Pound: “invent two lies and have the public keep arguing which one of them might be true”. Another is by Leo Strauss – the erudite teacher of the majority of the neo-cons – called “Noble Lies”. A third by the White House, often referred to as “plausible deniability”, okay may be it was invented by the DIA, the grand-daddy of all intelligence agencies. This thinly-veiled euphemism for deception to protect the leadership if things go badly in covert-operations became public knowledge during the Iran-Contra scandal, the televised coverage of which had gripped the American nation for months, including myself. And this wasn’t just a rogue operation with ad hoc deniability cover by patriotic agents as most in the public are led to believe. Deniability is official government policy vis a vis any covert operation dating back to President Truman’s signing of NSC 10/2. That directive made the introduction of “plausible deniability” a requirement for CIA’s clandestine operations in case they were ever blown while still active. Below is an excerpt from “Note on U.S. Covert Action Programs”:
‘Management of Covert Actions in the Truman Presidency
The Truman administration’s concern over Soviet “psychological warfare” prompted the new National Security Council to authorize, in NSC 4-A of December 1947, the launching of peacetime covert action operations. NSC 4-A made the Director of Central Intelligence responsible for psychological warfare, establishing at the same time the principle that covert action was an exclusively Executive Branch function. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) certainly was a natural choice but it was assigned this function at least in part because the Agency controlled unvouchered funds, by which operations could be funded with minimal risk of exposure in Washington.1
ClA’s early use of its new covert action mandate dissatisfied officials at the Departments of State and Defense. The Department of State, believing this role too important to be left to the CIA alone and concerned that the military might create a new rival covert action office in the Pentagon, pressed to reopen the issue of where responsibility for covert action activities should reside. Consequently, on June 18, 1948, a new NSC directive, NSC 10/2, superseded NSC 4-A.
NSC 10/2 directed CIA to conduct “covert” rather than merely “psychological” operations, defining them as all activities “which are conducted or sponsored by this Government against hostile foreign states or groups or in support of friendly foreign states or groups but which are so planned and executed that any US Government responsibility for them is not evident to unauthorized persons and that if uncovered the US Government can plausibly disclaim any responsibility for them.”
… The Special Group and the 303 Committee approved 163 covert actions during the Kennedy administration and 142 during the Johnson administration through February 1967. The 1976 Final Report of the Church Committee, however, estimated that of the several thousand projects undertaken by the CIA since 1961, only 14 percent were considered on a case-by-case basis by the 303 Committee and its predecessors (and successors). Those not reviewed by the 303 Committee were low-risk and low-cost operations. The Final Report also cited a February 1967 CIA memorandum that included a description of the mode of policy arbitration of decisions on covert actions within the 303 Committee system. CIA presentations were questioned, amended, and even on occasion denied, despite protests from the DCI. Department of State objections modified or nullified proposed operations, and the 303 Committee sometimes decided that some agency other than CIA should undertake an operation or that CIA actions requested by Ambassadors on the scene should be rejected.’
Lastly, among the already well-known tools of Management of Covert Actions for statecraft, we also have the “limited hangout” and “modified limited hangout” conspiracies to mislead the public in case “plausible deniability” for governmental wrong-doing doesn’t work. This modus operandi of accepting partial mea culpa for something less consequential in order to mask the more egregious crimes was amply demonstrated by Richard Nixon during the waning years of his presidency. A good description of it with excerpts from the Nixon tapes planning the red herrings is on Wikipedia.
Calculated omission is perhaps the most crafty tool of public persuasion in the general statecraft of deception as it naturally relies on ignorance – for who can have complete knowledge of every subject? Aldous Huxley aptly recalled the Churchillian term for creating such a chasm between facts and fiction as lowering an “iron curtain” around the public’s sense of perception:
‘The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects, by lowering what Mr. Churchill calls an “iron curtain” between the masses and such facts or arguments as the local political bosses regard as undesirable, totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have done by the most eloquent denunciations, the most compelling of logical rebuttals.’ (Aldous Huxley, 1946 Preface to Brave New World, 1931)
Keeping thinking peoples plausibly occupied lest they discover the real levers of power is much more complicated than mere manufacturing consent among the masses. The latter are generally quite amenable to simple propaganda, to the big lie, and appeal to the irrational mind and subconscious fears (or needs), with repetitious reinforcement. That diabolical science of mass persuasion is already well understood, thanks to the pioneering work of Edward Bernays and the Mighty Wurlitzer, not to overlook Goebbels and Hitler, as the engineering of consent among the majority. Hitler categorized them into type-1, “those who believe everything they read; … when the voting papers of the masses are the deciding factor; the decision lies in the hands of the numerically strongest group; that is to say the first group, the crowd of simpletons and the credulous.”
The minority of thoughtful peoples however, also often the people of conscience, pose a different problem. According to Hitler, the type-3, “those who critically examine what they read and form their judgments accordingly. … Hence the trash that newspapers are capable of serving up is of little danger–much less of importance–to the members of the third group of readers. In the majority of cases these readers have learnt to regard every journalist as fundamentally a rogue who sometimes speaks the truth. Most unfortunately, the value of these readers lies in their intelligence and not in their numerical strength, an unhappy state of affairs in a period where wisdom counts for nothing and majorities for everything.” If not craftily waylaid, this third group of people stand to acquire some real comprehension of the otherwise carefully hidden from the masses in plainsight, conspiratorial forces which actually shape their world.
These rebels – referred to as the ‘malcontents’ by H. G. Wells in his famous book “New World Order” – can also figure out that the visible rulers whom the public elects with such gravitas every so often to run their country on their behalf in a momentous celebration of ‘democracy’ which in reality only affords the demos the choice between twiddledee and twiddledum in a carefully choreographed Hegelian Dialectic, are actually not their public servants. To hide the fact that these elected psychopaths are really still only the errand boys and girls of an invisible ruling-oligarchy, manufacturing dissent to mislead the energies of the handful of thinking and conscionable peoples has become a necessary instrument of statecraft.
This deception typically entails manufacturing dissent chiefs who can craftily take their respective flock, by a circuitous route, to the same pastures as the mainstream public. I.e., the net impact of their celebrated dissent in derailing the manufactured consent among the masses being exactly zero. These crafty dissent-chiefs, fortunately enough, are also rather trivial to identify. Their main modus operandi appears to be to oppose power while still echoing its core message!
These traffickers in ‘truth’ – i.e., absurdities – will often truthfully describe the visible puppetshows and bravely challenge empire on what is already known and overt, such as its criminal bombings and maiming of other nations. But they will also, for instance as in this war on terror, also echo one or more of the primemover axioms of empire which ab initio enables empire’s “imperial mobilization”! Namely, that some ‘Ali Baba’ magically pulled off 911 from his almighty perch in the Hindu Kush, that Islamofascism is a genuine threat to mankind, that Al Qaeeda is out to impose its will on the West and is being aided and abetted from Pakistan-Iran nexus, etc. Because these dissent-artists hector empire in its killing of innocent civilians, they often attract big audiences among the type-2 category people identified by Hitler, “those who no longer believe anything;”. According to Hitler, these were formerly type-1 who changed their allegiances from unquestioningly believing establishment’s dogmas, to blindly opposing them. They now unquestioningly follow their new leaders, the artfully fabricated dissent-chiefs.
But they also attract some type-3, fortunately only temporarily, since fabricated dissent is trivially exposed to those unencumbered by blind-faith in power and its many incantations. See Weapons of Mass Deception for more in depth deconstruction of the diabolical Manufacturing of Dissent.
And for the most recalcitrant among the ‘malcontent’ unwilling to subjugate their own common and political sense to the devil’s science, exclusively the type-3 of Hitler’s classification whose value “lies in their intelligence and not in their numerical strength”, new modalities to discredit them are are continually constructed. The latest being mental illness.
As reported in the Washington Post, if “there might be a legal entitlement to be a jerk”, most assuredly there will be legal entitlement to be a non-conformist, i.e., an independent thinker:
‘Today’s DSM defines “oppositional defiant disorder” as a pattern of “negativistic, defiant, disobedient and hostile behavior toward authority figures.” Symptoms include “often loses temper,” “often deliberately annoys people” or “is often touchy.” DSM omits this symptom: “is a teenager.”
This DSM defines as “personality disorders” attributes that once were considered character flaws. “Antisocial personality disorder” is “a pervasive pattern of disregard for . . . the rights of others . . . callous, cynical . . . an inflated and arrogant self-appraisal.” “Histrionic personality disorder” is “excessive emotionality and attention-seeking.” “Narcissistic personality disorder” involves “grandiosity, need for admiration . . . boastful and pretentious.” And so on.
If every character blemish or emotional turbulence is a “disorder” akin to a physical disability, legal accommodations are mandatory. Under federal law, “disabilities” include any “mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities”; “mental impairments” include “emotional or mental illness.” So there might be a legal entitlement to be a jerk. (See above, “antisocial personality disorder.”)’ — George F. Will, The Washington Post, February 28, 2010, Handbook suggests that deviations from ‘normality’ are disorders
It should now be self-evident that while a conspiracy is still active, or while mileage is being extracted from a clandestine operation that is on-going or an agenda that is being secretly pursued, or to hide or spin some other egregious wrong-doing, all analytical and deconstructive references to its unraveling must be squashed or dismissed. Inter alia, by defocussing attention from them, by introducing clever red herrings and side shows, and by labeling such detective work by the public as kookish “conspiracy theories”.
Its advocates, the few daring and persistent unravellers of “truth’s protective layers”, to be marginalized by labeling them as fools, idiots, deniers of reality suffering from “emotional or mental illness”, an “oppositional defiant disorder” exhibiting a pattern of “negativistic, defiant, disobedient and hostile behavior toward authority figures” and therefore a threat to themselves and to society! Those resorting to any active opposition against the government’s lies and deceit, such as through civil disobedience, to be designated as “domestic terrorists”.
And when the conspiracies are prematurely blown despite all the Machiavellian preemption efforts at masking them, to have the multiple cover stories ready for “plausible deniability”, including some version of “limited hangout”, using the ubiquitous Mighty Wurlitzer’s message machine.
Is all this a fairy tale? The rabbit hole runs deep and permeates not just the news media and the privately funded think-tanks, but also the academe which is routinely tapped for statecraft.
Cass R. Sunstein of Harvard Law School, the man who is today President Obama’s Information Czar in the White House, in his 2008 paper titled “Conspiracy Theories”, called this process of the creation of diabolical red herrings with half-truths and falsehoods, introducing “beneficial cognitive diversity” through “cognitive infiltration”. The paper has to be read in its entirety in order to be appreciated for its brazen and open appeal to Machiavelli for conducting statecraft when thinking people remain unencumbered by its mere propaganda spin.
What are these deceptions of statecraft if not real conspiracies by the establishment to mask their real clandestine covert-operations, untenable agendas, and wrong-doings?
Thus, if it is axiomatically asserted that there is no such thing as a real conspiracy, then that really works wonderfully in the interest of the cloak-makers because it makes one forget the perspectives of history.
And this complex Machiavellian deception game behind alleging ‘kookishness’ bears exposing fully: invent two or more lies, not just one, and keep the good hearted well meaning peoples in the “populist democracy” occupied debating which one of them might be true, for it would hardly matter what conclusions they reached. And wherever they ended up, to perhaps yank one of the lies from underneath them by conclusively showing it to be false thus conveniently demonstrating a baseless “conspiracy theory” in order to keep that notion alive in the public imagination. This consequently delegitimizes in the public mind serious researchers’ efforts in uncovering any covert-operation while its secrecy is of paramount necessity. Afterwards, after faits accomplis, after statute of limitations expiring, it makes little difference if historians and con-fession artists make a pecuniary gain peddling what is inconsequential history to the newer evolving realpolitik du jour. The recognition of this self-evident truth of the matter and its utility to Machiavellian statecraft was boldly narrated even in the New York Times, quoting a senior advisor to the president of the United States at the time, George W. Bush:
‘“That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”’ (Ron Suskind, NYT, Oct. 17, 2004)
So many complex semantics for the simple term “conspiracy theory” – it’s not just mere nomenclature – that this overview of its usefulness to statecraft was necessary in order to situate anything with such a bombastic title as “The Capitalist Conspiracy”, in its proper social-political-legal-conspiratorial context.
And an equally insightful and rational response to this question of long enduring conspiracy for world domination, is added to the motivational mix by G. Edward Griffin in the video below:
“After a man has far more money than he possibly can spend for pleasures, what is left to excite him? For those with the ruling class mentality, the answer is power – raw power over other human beings. Money can buy such power only to a point, beyond that, politics is the sport, and world politics is the ultimate game.”
Thus, Griffin aptly noted: “The New World Order Is Not New”, but a common objective borne of natural inclination to primacy which apparently transcends time, space, geography and race. It naturally increases in its scope in proportion to the vistas of power it acquires. And it automatically attracts to its cause the coterie of sycophants and useful idiots essential in realizing its overarching agendas. It is helped along, as W. Cleon Skoussen uncannily observed in his commentary in “The Naked Capitalist”:
‘The real value of Tragedy and Hope … [is the] bold and boastful admission by Dr. Quigley that there actually exists a relatively small but powerful group which has succeeded in acquiring a choke-hold on the affairs of practically the entire human race. Of course we should be quick to recognize that no small group could wield such gigantic power unless millions of people in all walks of life were “in on the take” and were willing to knuckle down to the iron-clad regimentation of the ruthless bosses behind the scenes. As we shall see, the network has succeeded in building its power structure by using tremendous quantities of money (together with the vast influence it buys) to manipulate, intimidate, or corrupt millions of men and women and their institutions on a world-wide basis.’ (pg. 6)
Subsequent manipulation of global events through statecraft machinations become trivial when one has already taken over the state’s machinery through its many essential instruments of policy-making. The same instruments today are behind the formulation of coercive policies for ostensibly addressing the myriad global crises plaguing mankind today – from Global War on Terror to Global Financial Collapse to Global Epidemics to Global Warming to Global Food Shortage to Global Water Shortage etceteras – and for which, the solution posited, is of course Global Governance:
‘I have never believed that there is a secret United Nations plot to take over the US. I have never seen black helicopters hovering in the sky above Montana. But, for the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible. A “world government” would involve much more than co-operation between nations. It would be an entity with state-like characteristics, backed by a body of laws. The European Union has already set up a continental government for 27 countries, which could be a model. The EU has a supreme court, a currency, thousands of pages of law, a large civil service and the ability to deploy military force. So could the European model go global? There are three reasons for thinking that it might. First, it is increasingly clear that the most difficult issues facing national governments are international in nature: there is global warming, a global financial crisis and a “global war on terror”.’ (Gideon Rachman, And now for a world government, Financial Times, December 8, 2008)
Right out of the box of user manuals for the “end run around national sovereignty” made available to the world through the benevolence of the Council on Foreign Relations:
“In short, the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up, rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion’ to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.
Of course, for political as well as administrative reasons, some of these specialized arrangements should be brought into an appropriate relationship with the central institutions of the U.N. system, but the main thing is that the essential functions be performed.
The question is whether this more modest approach can do the job. Can it really bring mankind into the twenty-first century with reasonable prospects for peace, welfare and human dignity? The argument thus far suggests it better had, for there seems to be no alternative. But the evidence also suggests some grounds for cautious optimism.” (Richard N. Gardner, The Hard Road To World Order, Foreign Affairs, April 1974, 558-559)
In summary, the upshot of it all is that it becomes a moot point what label one might give to this empirical predatory behavior wrapped in deception. Zbigniew Brzezinski even openly proclaimed its pertinence to statecraft in the very first sentence of his book mentioned earlier: “Hegemony is as old as mankind”. And Nicolò Machiavelli very perceptively outlined its recipe in The Prince whose modern reincarnation in murderous play on the Grand Chessboard has been to convince people of absurdities to get them to acquiesce to the atrocities and spendings of hegemony.
The undeniable fact remains that world-government has been a long historical passion of oligarchs! The quest for the hegemony of the entire world has been their natural enduring conspiracy for world government. Its new religion is secular humanism. Its new imperative is population reduction. Its primal modus operandi is deception, which, in its harbingers’ own words, is to create “an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece [by making it] look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion’”. And it is finally coming to its grand fruition in our own time with continuous newer myths and crises creation which span the gamut from ‘Global Warming’ to ‘Global War on Terror’, and more recently from ‘Global Swine Flu Pandemic’ to ‘Global environmental disaster due to oil spill’, each new crisis and myth leading to enacting new legalisms for incrementally eroding more national sovereignty while ushering in more police-state. In keeping with the “conspiracy theory” paradigm of statecraft, most useful idiots are kept busy mindlessly chattering on about “conspiracy theories” and “Islamofascism” in perfect echo with the Machiavellis. Enjoy Ed Griffin’s narration in The Capitalist Conspiracy video, made in 1972!

Subject: Retention of core-lies in your writings?

AOA and hello. Your recent article: ‘Why my uncle Asif Ali Zardari’s rule in Pakistan cannot be trusted’, as well as the excerpts from your new fantastic book that I have read (it’s not yet available in California – but I look forward to enjoying the good-read), somehow retain the core-lies of empire. You play dissent while retaining the mantras employed for manufacturing consent. This is entirely inexplicable to me for your pen. I hope you can explain it.
For your reference where I explain the core-lies which are retained:
‘Wikileaks and the Mighty Wurlitzer’
‘Convince People of Absurdities and get them Acquiescing to Atrocities: The Enduring Power of Machiavellian Political Science’
Do you or do you not also think the same? I cannot imagine that the principled daughter of one who [as you have claimed] opposed US policies in Pakistan would not be intimately aware of these matters on the Grand Chessboard, of social engineering, and of the nature of power, far more than yours truly. Please explain your continuing with the core-lies?
Here is the statement from your aforementioned article which opposes power while retaining its imperial axioms: “How does Britain expect Zardari to fight terror when he’s not even sure of what the word means?” — Based on entirely false premise that the ‘war on terror’ is real, that Britain/US are interested in fighting terror rather than perpetuating it to synthesize an enemy, that Taliban/Al-Qaeeda are an independent force rather than an American patsy division in local uniform.
And here is the opposing of power: “President Zardari is considered one of Pakistan’s most venal figures. His nicknames run from Mr Ten Per Cent to the updated Mr Hundred and Ten Per Cent. Zardari has come under massive criticism for choosing to traipse across Europe via his usual five-star hotels while floods in northern Pakistan have killed upwards of 1,400 people, displaced 100,000 households and affected three million Pakistanis. Zardari’s alleged corruption — in the $2-3•billion range, according to The New York Times — has not stopped Cameron or Obama’s governments from funding, supporting and propping up the government of a man whose legacy has been marked by political unpopularity, instability, large-scale graft and violence.” — All very undeniably true!
Thanks if you might explain yourself as a public writer, a public intellectual, and someone whom I respect. Your omissions and silence on fundamentals of empire, of waging war by way of deception, is inexplicable to me. I hate to think of co-option as an explanation, as I already think of many others in Pakistan some of whom critique you (unfairly and I can quite easily refute them if I wanted to), like Ayesha Siddiqa. They all live in glass houses, and play noora-kushti [fake or fixed wrestling match as in WWF] with each other – I suspect.
All the best, and I do look forward to getting your book and reading it with pleasure.

Hello. I read your article in The News, May 06, 2010, with interest. Some of your statements like “The murder also raises questions about what games are being played now. … There is further confusion. Lack of clarity persists…” betray that you are perhaps not unaware of David Ben Gurion’s famous dictum: “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”; nor perhaps with the Council on Foreign Relations author’s famous statement from 1974: “In short, the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up, rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion’ to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.”; and therefore, surely familiar with the role of “confusion” as a Machiavellian tool of transformations which is otherwise unpalatable.
Below I reproduce an editorial – perhaps you might look at it. The fact that your article which was published, and my editorial which wasn’t, in the same newspaper, is revealing to me. Is it revealing to you? You are echoing the axioms of empire, that the “insurgency” is real. I assert that it is fabricated to create the “confusion” you bemoan.

Subject: Conspiracy theories galore – Anatomy of Conspiracy Theory
Date: Tue, Mar 9, 2010 at 1:27 PM
I thought I might as well forward the following primer on the Anatomy of Conspiracy Theory to you, since your article in the DAWN of Feb. 26, 2010 “Conspiracy theories galore” kind of prompted it. I assembled it out of my various pieces of earlier writings – since I have already examined this subject in some depth over the past 8 years. (If you should notice any abrupt jump in thought between passages, I would appreciate if you might let me know.)
In 2003 when I spoke to Robert Fisk and asked him about a recently published book in France at that time on prior knowledge of 911, his answer then perhaps also captured your own un-stated axiomal sentiments visible to me in your own article: ~“I live in the land of conspiracy theories (in Beirut, Lebanon, but he meant Arabs in general have this proclivity), and since there is no concrete evidence to demonstrate there is one, I am not going to go there.” Please do let me know if I got your perspective-lens right?
FYI: I also know a bit about psyops – cut my teeth reading many a CIA’s declassified document, and studying Edward Bernays and Hitler. Whereas most pious people read the Bible or the Qur’an for their daily thought, I thumb through Mein Kampf and Propaganda manuals to deconstruct psyops in current affairs, and to analyze the various elements of ‘4thgeneration warfare’ and how it is employed to soften up nations from within before a final coup de grace by the enemy assembled at the gates. Plato to Hegel, including the Prince, sit on my bookshelf. As you’d quite agree, they together compose the seed-bed of modern political thought and statecraft in democratic societies for extracting every ounce of voluntary servitude from the plebs to transform them into perfect ‘prisoners of the cave’ – the title of my maiden and unpublished 2003 deconstruction of Brzezinski’s “democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization” (rejected by 30 publishers despite a generous commendation letter written by the late Howard Zinn). With that as my humble background, self-taught mind you, but initially seeded in Noam Chomsky’s Foreign Policy classes at MIT when he actually used to teach himself, one can surely imagine that I would know a tad about psyops. Besides, it is today just too common a knowledge for me to write a primer on!
But I wonder if you know anything about the intellectual negro? The one plagued by ‘occidentosis’? This is the native informants’ disease of engaging in Rand constructed Hegelian Dialectic while willingly carrying the white man’s burden. Here is a link to my primer on that (for this is a rare topic indeed – Dawn would never publish an oped on it even by your good-self; but then again, a good spinster can make it out to be in the context of defending from the pro-Talibanization of Pakistan as the only viable choice between the military and the mullah, and that would be eagerly printed, at least by the Daily Times):
I hope you enjoy both these primers. And I also wish you well. I will be in Pakistan this summer – perhaps we can discuss such political science based statecraft and the plague of ‘occidentosis’ which Pakistan’s English-enabled literati is apparently sorely afflicted with, over tea?
As for the points raised in your article about Pakistani leadership and the large motes in our own eyes, you may find my other book pertinent: “Pakistan Decapitation Papers”:
P.S. In case you do not recall my name Ayesha, I had reviewed your book Military Inc. when it first came out, and conveyed to you my few comments on its blatant omissions. I chose not to publish my review because of your gentle humility in accepting the faults and noting that you will be rectifying them in your future book. And I am still waiting…. You of course may already be aware that I have referred to your other writings and to your overall perspectives in my own analyses from time to time, and often not so very kindly. I have usually remembered to email them to you for your refutation, but perhaps you missed them.

Subject: Response to the Fatwa on Terrorism in the Service of Empire
Date: Wed, Mar 24, 2010 at 11:09 AM
Dear Scholars and Leaders of Islam issuing the One-sided Fatwa on Terrorism:
You might be aware that I do not recognize any pious leaders, of Islam or otherwise, when they intersect conversely with truth, or with political science. The only genuine leadership I know of today, is that of the devil – the hectoring hegemons – and therefore, I oppose it.
Therefore, I do not find it impertinent to boldly ask whether you take peoples to be fools? Or are you just being useful idiots in the hands of hectoring hegemons? I am not sure which one. Therefore, I draw your kind attention to Project Humanbeingsfirst’s Response to your Terrorism Fatwa which is entirely in the service of empire:
Please be advised that people are aware that all sorts of fatwas have been issued throughout history by the most pious pontiffs to justify the crimes of empire. If it is news to you how religion, and especially Islam, is put in the service of empire through half-truths and outright omissions, then, instead of presuming to teach others, you might perhaps spend some time studying yourself.
And lest you believe that you have acquired some newly inspired knowledge through virtuous piety which I do not possess due to my ordinary dint of hard study and forensic observations, and due to which you believe your palpable omissions as noted in the response are justified, I would be happy to hear of your inspired knowledge.
And if I am shown the error of my analysis and conclusions due to my general lack of humility before either the pirates or the emperor, I would be happy to eat crow.
Otherwise, I invite you to be forthright and include what is omitted in your terrorism report to complete your partial thesis in the full service of the people, of all peoples. For doing that, you will most assuredly earn my genuine and humble thanks with full endorsement of your report – provided the word fatwa is dropped from it. Your personal opinion has no religious significance in matters in which the religion of Islam has unequivocally already spoken. Only a political one, and that would be sufficient, nay [of] immense significance for the ordinary peoples of the world, almost 7 billion of us, of all faiths and persuasions, that even one Muslim scholar has the balls to call a spade a spade.
Even further, I would be most happy to enter into fair interlocution with your learned scholar who presumably authored this one-sided Fatwa, or obligingly put his name to it, in any public televised forum. Should be interesting for the world to witness a rational dialog between a virtuous Islamic scholar berating the pirates while ignoring the grotesque imperial mobilization of the emperor that is not only responsible for genocide of multiple Muslim civilizations, but is also rapidly lowering an iron-curtain of tortuous police-states throughout Europe and America, and an ordinary plebe.
I humbly invite the press to publish this letter in their columns and newspapers.

Response to the Fatwa on Terrorism in the Service of Empire
Saturday, March 20, 2010 | Updated July 16, 2010
The political philosophies and social engineering underlying imperial mobilization are far more diabolical today than they have been in the past. Comprehending the role of fabricated enemies and false oppositions to lend credence to the fabricated enemies, begins at the doorstep of political science, not Islam. The fatwa is part of the finely tuned social engineering to continually engineer consent for the fabricated perpetual war on terror.
This is a response to the following pertinent passage from the Pakistani news reports on the Islamic scholar Dr. Tahir ul-Qadri of Minhaj-ul-Qur’aan, a Sufi organization in East London, issuing terrorism fatwa (also reported by BBC March 2, 2010).
The Pakistani English language daily The News reported on January 18, 2010 “Minhaj-ul-Quran to issue Fatwa against terrorists in London today”:
‘LONDON: The 600-page document, drawn up by Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri, declares that attacks on innocent citizens are “absolutely against the teachings of Islam”.
The Minhaj-ul-Qur’aan, a Sufi organisation based in East London, which advises the British government on how to combat radicalisation of the Muslim youth, will launch the 600-page Fatwa against suicide bombings and terrorism, declaring them un-Islamic, tomorrow.
It condemns the perpetrators of terrorist explosions and suicide bombings. The document, written by Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri, declares the suicide bombings and terrorism as “totally un-Islamic”. It is one of the most detailed and comprehensive documents of its kind to be published in Britain.’
The BBC in its own truthful coverage of the fatwa on March 02, 2010 (and parroted by the world press) noted that: ‘The scholar describes al-Qaeda as an “old evil with a new name” that has not been sufficiently challenged.’ Al Qaeda is indeed the same age “old evil with a new name”: the fabricated Hegelian Dialectic necessary for launching and sustaining “imperial mobilization” on the Grand Chessboard!
But sadly, and quite expectedly, none heralding the fatwa in the worldwide media coverage, nor any branded scholar manufacturing consent or dissent, dared to complete that virtuous proclamation on terrorism in that 600-page fatwa with the following obviousness:
‘Furthermore, gratuitously laying a carpet of bombs on civilian populations, invading one’s military forces into other nations’ territories, and decimating entire civilizations to the point of cultural and physical genocide, is a far greater terrorism; a crime of aggression so heinous that it is not simply referred to as “war crime”, but “the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”’
Unless that additional truism – which is also the Islamic principle for culpability expressed in the Qur’an as the blame is with those who initiate the war-mongering aggression – well established by the Military Tribunal at Nuremberg by the United States herself as the yardstick for identifying primary war-mongers, is appended, or pre-pended, to any overarching statement on terrorism, one must know that all such pious proclamations, including that in the 600-page document, are only the Hegelian vomit of vulgar propagandists justifying the “supreme international crime” of their real masters.
Their fate will be no different than Goebbells’. Whether or not that destiny actually transpires within our own lifetime, let it be repeatedly told at every opportunity, in every generation, and in no uncertain terms, that in the hammaams (bath houses) of the hectoring hegemons, these prostitutes are merely their “Bukakke” (borrowing that hideous new word which appears to be the passionate pastime of many a Pakistani as I learnt here).
Unlike some others, I foolishly write under my own name with full self-identification. And I invite these brilliant scholars who span the gamut of doctrinal warfare from peddling “Islam” with half-truths to peddling Secular Humanism with outright deception, to haul me into the International Criminal Court of Justice for referring to them by their only real profession. It should be interesting, but only if the foolish plebeian is permitted to speak unfettered.
Any takers of “justice”, “Islam”, Secular Humanism? How about you, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri?
The voice of reason of ordinary plebeians often seems to be accompanied by only the thunderous sounds of silence. Free-speech in free-space can kill mercilessly by asphyxiation!
And humanity is concomitantly being butchered under the twain carpet of bombs because there is no one to challenge the “supreme international crime” in a forum that has any meaningful power to redress it. When the rare opportunity does materialize to wage a genuine battle for justice for a change, it is largely squandered on the lower order bits of the matter:
But what kills me even more than these well-intentioned justice-minded professionals whom I don’t personally know – at least these courageous folks know the truth and operate on their own peculiar calculus of justice which merely differs from mine – is the obsequence of intellectual and house negroes in America and Pakistan, many of whom happen to be my good friends and colleagues. Some even know of my humble pen. And yet, they too only see the friggin Islamofascist pirates, just like this Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri chap with his fake Hegelian opposition to Islamofascism. But not the emperor’s vast armies poised to annihilate entire defenseless nations with their unmatched nuclear weapons, and already having done so with extreme “shock and awe” invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Palestine, and now even doing their own nation.
Nor do they try to comprehend political science, that the pirates are almost entirely a diabolical synthesis of the emperor’s Machiavellian brains because without Islamofascism and its duped recruits, the rulers of the world have no pretext to rapidly transform their empire into world government. All the hectoring hegemons’ raped-pregnancies and birth-pangs of world order ultimately remain still-born without the synthetic curse of Islamofascism:
‘[Because] the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public’s sense of domestic well-being. The economic self-denial (that is defense spending), and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization. … [Thus it is] more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat. … That exercise requires a high degree of doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment, and patriotic gratification.’ (Zbigniew Brzezinski)
I expect Dr. Tahir ul-Qadri of Minhaj-ul-Qur’aan to publicly explain his vulgar omissions in his partial definition of terrorism. Perhaps he remains un-aware that: “Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects… totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have by the most eloquent denunciations.” (Aldous Huxley) I would in fact support his thesis on terrorism if it was accordingly amended to reflect all the omissions noted here, and not couched as fatwa in the service of empire.
However, the learned scholar labors under a grave misconception that his personal opinion has any religious significance as fatwa, even if he were to make the aforementioned corrections and forthrightly condemn empire’s own state terrorism and war-mongering aggression in his document.
No human being needs permission from another to wage his or her legitimate self-defense. It is a primary existential instinct, more fundamental than any dogma, religion, or belief – even the lowliest of animals have their instinct for self-preservation. If modernity has desensitized that basic instinct among humankind, watch its demonstration in animalkind in the Battle at Kruger. Loftier principles of morals and dogmas layered upon these basic natural instincts which purport to transform us human beings from the amoeba into Ashraf-ul-Maklooqat – such as America’s famous Bill of Rights and its Declaration of Independence, and of course Islam which proclaims itself the natural religion liberating man from the shackles of all servitude to fellow man – regulate what is lawful and what isn’t so people may equitably co-exist with each other and with state-power without usurping each others rights. That regulation for Muslims choosing to follow the religion Islam, is explicit in the Qur’anic teachings in the context of terrorism vs. Jihad.
These require no mullah’s fatwa, no matter how learned.
Personal fatwas in the religion of Islam may not be issued on what is already made explicit in the religion of Islam itself – by the very definition of the concept of fatwa in Islamic jurisprudence. What is permissible, and what isn’t, in waging the battle of self-defense is already made abundantly explicit in the principled teachings of the Holy Qur’an. One may surely explain these principles to others in full context, but not issue fatwas amending, particularizing, or hiding its general import in the totality of the message of Islam through calculated omissions in the service of vested interests.
Any personal opinion couched as fatwa which fails to recognize the greatest enemy systematically devouring Muslims today, can only emanate from the enemy of the Muslims. The hectoring hegemons are experts at disguises and can wear any garb. The Mussalmans’ short and blood-soaked history is replete with such two-bit shills putting religion in the service of empire. The price has spanned the gamut of co-option from a few silver coins for issuing imperial proclamations in the name of Islam, to anointed leadership of manufactured sects for sowing discords and “beneficial cognitive diversity” in the best mold of divide et impera.
In this instance, it is the realization of Daniel Pipes wet-dreams in the service of empire that ‘The idea that “militant Islam is the problem, moderate Islam is the solution” is finding greater acceptance over time.’ Well, here is empire’s own “moderate Islam” for us plebes, as the WWF wrestling match against its own virulent creation of “militant Islam”.

The political philosophies and social engineering underlying imperial mobilization are far more diabolical today than they have been in the past. Comprehending the role of fabricated enemies and false oppositions to lend credence to the fabricated enemies, begins at the doorstep of political science, not Islam. The fatwa is part of the finely tuned social engineering to continually engineer consent for the fabricated perpetual war on terror. The primary modus operandi of that social engineering is seeded in the Hegelian Dialectics of Deception and the Technique of Infamy as already explained in this tutorial. ( http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/05/anatomy-of-modern-lies-pakistanishills.html ) Witness the dialectical twin of this pious Fatwa in the promulgation of the impious girl flogging video which was presciently unraveled in this Letter to Editor of April 06, 2009 ( http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/04/pak-geniuses-or-native-informants.html ), and which is now coming unraveled even officially.
This factual observation of diabolically engineering consent with tortuous political theories and absurdities being primarily at work here, is further underscored in the stark contrast between the pious ‘Islamic scholarship’ of the Fatwa in the service of empire and this Syrian Arab Catholic priest’s lament in his open letter ‘To His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI’. The latter demonstrates a moral fibre largely unknown to Pakistan’s virtuous house negro peddling ‘Islam’s holiness’ for gratis (£6.99 for hardcopy), and which was even intoned by the BBC News Magazine as ‘A fatwa they can work with?’: “An Islamic scholar turned up in London last week to deliver a religious ruling denouncing terrorism in all its forms – but what was it about him that made everyone sit up and listen? He’s a man on a mission – a mission to state the obvious.” Unfortunately for the ‘untermenschen’ everywhere, this virtuous “man on a mission” journeying to the heartland of empire in voluntary servitude to peddle his “Islam” felt no “moral mission to state the [even more] obvious”! Facts which, quite unsurprisingly, even the empire’s own top field commander, Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, being a free man unfettered in his own la mission civilisatrice, had the cold chutzpah to boldly proclaim without fear of any future Nuremberg accountability: “We have shot an amazing number of people, but to my knowledge, none has ever proven to be a threat,” (New York Times, March 26, 2010)
Finally, I conclude this lamentable but principled response to Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri’s terrorism fatwa in the service of his empire with the only universally humanitarian prayer to perhaps ever escape from the particularistic lips of ‘god’s chosen people’ now waging full spectrum war of domination upon all Amelekites, that of its favorite Nobel laureate HolocaustTM spokesman, Elie Wiesel:
‘I still curse the killers, their accomplices, the indifferent spectators who knew and kept silent, and Creation itself, Creation and those who perverted and distorted it. I feel like screaming, howling like a madman so that that world, the world of the murderers, might know it will never be forgiven.’
* Footnote: I have no opinion on Tahir ul-Qadri’s version of “Sufi Islam” per se, only on his brazen omissions in defining terrorism in the calculated service of empire. Qadri is not a patsy.

Seen in a conversation on the web:
Voice1: “Want to support Aafia Siddiqui? Please donate!”
Voice2: “Isn’t it a bit naive to think this will work? … I say to hell with this ‘donation’ business.”
Project Humanbeingsfirst responds:
Hello. My take on this is as follows.
Firstly, yes, you are entirely correct, it will not work. The “why” of it is expressed in the first half of the editorial I penned yesterday and submitted to the NYT. It is here: Editorial: Dr. Aafia Siddiqui and Justice in the Service of Empire February 13, 2010
Secondly, whether it works or not is irrelevant. The relevance however to continue pursuing truth is the following wisdom story. Please permit me to share it here. It is a rendition that bespeaks the wisdom we have lost, but one we must regain, both collectively as human beings first, and individually.
Here is the narrative in my own words:
When the Prophet Abraham (in the Orientalists’ spelling) was being thrown in the fire by the tyrannical ruler Nimrod, all creation was in tremendous angst. Even the stones spoke out against the tyrant. Every moral creature endeavored to the rescue of Prophet Ibraheem (AS) to put out the fire. To the extent that a tiny bird picked a droplet of water in its minuscule beak and started to fly over the fire. An Angel of God asked the little bird: “Surely you are not going to put out the fire with that droplet(!), and surely the high flames will consume you! – what do you think you are doing?” The tiny bird replied: “yes, you are right, and I know that my tiny droplet will not save the mighty Ulul-Azam Prophet of Allah. But I bring to the endeavor of truth and justice what I am capable of, and this tiny droplet is all I am capable of.”
Listen to Aafia’s remarkable mother: http://youtube.com/watch?v=OtYD8VRQVEI
It sounds like the same bird’s song, just to a more pulsating, throbbing beat.
So, my conclusion is: Bring what you can, better than bringing nothing at all.
And once on that journey, efficacy becomes only secondary – a lesson I too am unable to comprehend completely.
The intellect clearly shows its limits here. The spirit must take over. The same spirit caused Rosa Parks to say “NO”. The same spirit caused Rachel Corrie to say “NO”. The same spark caused Prophet Abraham to say “NO” first to Nimrod, and then “YES” to his Creator when asked to make the greatest sacrifice. That sacrifice, for those not unaware of our inheritance, was ransomed by saying another “NO” with its concomitant “Zibbhin Azeem” offering! [Holy Qur’an, Surah As-Saffat, 37:106-107]
All answers for Muslims can be found in just a bit of reflection upon Surah Asr. [Holy Qur’an, Chapter 103] And in reading our own books and drinking from the fount of our own wisdom, before we seek out the West’s prodigious sources of its vast learnings despite virtuous proclamations of the white man to the contrary:
“ I have no knowledge of either Sanscrit or Arabic. But I have done what I could to form a correct estimate of their value. I have read translations of the most celebrated Arabic and Sanscrit works. I have conversed, both here and at home, with men distinguished by their proficiency in the Eastern tongues. I am quite ready to take the oriental learning at the valuation of the orientalists themselves. I have never found one among them who could deny that a single shelf of a good European library was worth the whole native literature of India and Arabia. The intrinsic superiority of the Western literature is indeed fully admitted by those members of the committee who support the oriental plan of education.” — Minute on Indian Education by Thomas Babbington Macaulay, dated 2nd February 1835.

Morality derived from the Intellect leads to Enslavement! Part-I
December 09, 2009 | Updated Friday, October 29, 2010
This is Project Humanbeingsfirst’s response to the moral reflections of an ordinary mortal using the nom de plume ‘lwtc247’ on the web, in “The importance and benefits of self honesty” where he mused:
‘When you stand before God to be judged, do you really think at that time you will be able to enter a debate with God about your behavior? Playing with or bending some words to cover-up or justify your bad deeds? Perhaps a little “white lie” here and there? Do you really think you can deceive God?’
This problem was solved by Nietzsche a long time ago! Where have you been?
There used to be a prominent T-Shirt worn around campus when I was an undergrad, it said in bold:
God is Dead — Nietzsche
(of course I am not going to provide you the punch-line that was printed in very fine letters just underneath that)
More pertinently however, morality and intellect are two separate things. It is mixing them where people become misled!
Intellect cannot confer upon morality any view other than subjective, and hence relative and arbitrary. The following statement from an ‘uber intellect’ is a good evidence of this:
“Nothing is more certain in modern society than the principle that there are no absolutes, that a name, a phrases, a standard has meaning only when associated with the considerations which give birth to nomenclature. To those who would paralyze our Government in the face of impending threat by encasing it in a semantic strait-jacket, we must reply that all concepts are relative.” — Justice Vinson, U.S. Supreme Court, 1951 AD
However, the following algorithm is not just evidence of what I say, but its outright proof. This proof is furnished by the ‘uber uber’ atheist of the 20th century, i.e., the most fanatical God is Dead exponent, Mr. Bertrand Russell. I can’t recall the exact chapter and verse, but it goes something like this.
Bertrand Russell’s morality synthesis exclusively from the intellect:
~’Maximize individual happiness (pleasures) while minimizing social conflict (not hitting on another’s spouse) to optimize the overall happiness of the people composing the social unit who agree to live by the set of laws which implement this operations-research calculus.’ — Bertrand Russell also noted some caveats for protection of minors and those unable to make choices so that one could not maximize one’s pleasures upon them without some institutional safeguards.
Using that highly intellectual morality equation – and I will confess that I have not encountered a more profound synthesis of morality and law anywhere, and which, on the surface at least, appears rather full of brilliance and minimalism – it would be perfectly acceptable, for instance, to spread Black-death every other generation for population control among other ‘untermensch’ societies. Or, to create a draconian police-state by re-defining what individual happiness might mean, and conditioning the people to get used to it. As Goethe had observed, “none are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free”. In such a society, the people could be kept quite content in their voluntary servitude thus leaving no social conflict whatsoever – and thus culminating in a perfectly stable and rational society.
In this highly intellectual system, also called Secular Humanism, enslaving the populace by a bunch of wily ‘ubermensch’ who have craftily chosen not to be constrained in the “semantic strait-jacket” alluded to by Judge Vinson quoted above and who accept “that all concepts are relative”, that state of affairs would be a perfectly moral outcome. It certainly satisfies Bertrand Russell’s intellect-derived morality calculus. And if someone thinks I am making all this up, Bertrand Russell himself concluded in his epiphany to ‘uber’ intellectual morality, in his 1952 book “Impact of Science on Society”, that a Scientific Society, meaning one built on intellect – as obviously imbeciles can’t do high-tech science – will automatically culminate in “World government [which] could only be kept in being by force”.
We can brazenly observe this exercise of the ‘uber’ intellect for instance, not just in the world government under construction which of course no one believes is happening, but in the Talmud among its very moral followers which no one can ever deny unless their lips are moving in chutzpatic confabulations. The Ten Commandments of Moses are intellectually particularized from their universal moral form, by adding an implied “Jew” at the end. Thus, as has been amply exposed by many recovering Jews themselves, “Thou Shall Not Kill” is read by many an adherent Talmudic Rabbi as: “Thou Shall Not Kill [a Jew; killing goy is OK]”.
And as evidence that this “hegelian mind fck” isn’t just some historical baggage which happened in the Dark Ages with no bearing to modernity, here is the latest version of the Law Book of Israel: ‘The King’s Torah‘: http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/the-complete-guide-to-killing-non-jews.html!
For additional examples of this ongoing “hegelian mind fck”, please see: http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/11/genesis-to-genocide-golem-not-jewish.html
Fundamentally, the problems outlined by lwtc247 have been long solved philosophically, i.e., by using the intellect. Here is a short passage from Leo Strauss which shows just how remarkably it is has been solved:
‘Political Zionism has repeatedly characterized itself as the will to normalize the existence of the Jewish people, to normalize the Jewish people. By this self-definition it has exposed itself to a grave misunderstanding, namely, the misunderstanding that the will to normality was the first word of political Zionism; the most effective criticism of political Zionism rests on this misunderstanding. In truth, the presupposition of the Zionist will to normalization, that is, of the Zionist negation of galut [exile], is the conviction that “the power of religion has been broken”. Because the break with religion has been resolutely effected by many individual Jews, and only because of this reason, it is possible for these individuals to raise the question on behalf of their people, how the people is to live from now on. Not that they prostrate themselves before the idol of normality; on the contrary: they no longer see any reason for the lack of normality. And this is decisive: in the age of atheism, the Jewish people can no longer base its existence on God but only on itself alone, on its labor, on its land, and on its state. …’ — page 202, Leo Strauss, The Early Writings 1921-1932
See its fuller exposition at the link below, but here is the core essence of that morality:
‘In simple language which peels off the philosophical-gibberish of “will to normality” and such, straightforwardly speaking: god gave the Jews the land grants, anointed them as the ‘chosen peoples’, and then Nietzsche killed god, and now it’s up to the Jewish people who “can no longer base its existence on God but only on itself alone, on its labor, on its land, and on its state”, in order to construct their own future “because the break with religion has been resolutely effected by many individual Jews” who must now lead their flock!!!’ — http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/02/letterto-dalitvoice-which-god.html
See how wonderful a solution it is mes amis? I hope no one is too sarcasm impaired here.
Not to be outdone by atheists in defining their own super-morality with their uber-intellect, god’s chosen theists can even outdo that with learned confabulations – become god themselves:
‘… The point is that a Jew has strength, ability and power to create the desire within G-d to accept and become King over the entire creation.
It’s understood, that the existence of the entire creation, in truth, is brought about by the Jew’s coronation of G-d, and through which He becomes a King over the entire creation, which ultimately results in the fact that all of creation comes from the Primary being, G-d.
It’s obvious that since every Jew, men and even women and children, brings about the existence of the entire creation, they become masters over the world, and thus every single creation owes them recognition for this good.
Being that through the Jew, all beings were created, he therefore becomes the master over all of them.
This is especially so in regards to what needs to be accomplished on erev [every?] Rosh Hashana.
Since the judgment of Rosh Hashana is primarily regarding physical matters, as explained in Likutei Torah, therefore the Jew is in complete control, particularly over physical matters.
The physicality of the world itself has to recognize the good that the Jew has accomplished.
Through the Jews they came into being, and their true existence is through their unity with the True Being.
Since G-d and the Jews are one, each Jew becomes a True Being, and is thus able to bring about all of creation.
He therefore has control over all of creation and not only that, but they owe him thanks and are indeed thankful, for being provided with abundance in physical and especially spiritual matters.’ — http://bloghumanbeingsfirst.wordpress.com/2010/10/22/on-jews-becoming-the-masters-of-the-world-the-coronation-of-hashem-from-the-torah/#masters-of-the-world
Such is the natural culmination of morality when the superior intellect is put in charge of it! The sociopaths will always justify the ubermensch.
It would of course be a travesty of thought to end this missive without giving the punch-line that was printed on the T-Shirt noted above. I wish I had bought one – at the time it was only humorous. It read:
Nietzsche is Dead — God!
I can hear someone laughing…
Because I can actually feel that laugh down my spine without any physical sound waves impinging upon my eardrums from across the ethernet, it shows me that, inter alia: Morality likewise is naturally felt, not naturally thought.
Morality originates from the heart where feelings reside, not the mind – Plato’s virtuous philosopher-king notwithstanding. Such abstract intellectualism, including his Shapes, appear to reside in the vast immanent-space of the philosopher’s mind alone since they can find no empirical verification in the far more constrained existential reality-space. The only morality that the intellect is empirically shown to beget through time immemorial, is the Nietzscheian-Hegelian variety explored above, of might has rights! It is also known as the divinely ordained moral law of the jungle to some. To others, it constitutes the categorical imperatives which are beyond good and evil. To still others, it is simply amoral precision of “military-style objectivity”.
Whereas, interestingly, as in all lovers’ happy or tragic tales also since time immemorial, the Heart also is where the Almighty resides! Read both the Qur’an and the Bible and one sees references to the heart as the container for morality, for spiritual eyes, for cleanliness of the heart begetting the cleanliness of the soul, for cognitively incomprehensible admonitions of none shall approach the truth unless they approach it with a cleansed heart, for there being a seal put on the heart of those who are heedless and who are the purveyors of falsehoods, who bring misery upon mankind by their ‘uber’ clever planning, etceteras. I have yet to recall knowing anyone who fell in love through their mind as opposed to through their heart. Or even recall reading any literature, sacred or divine, and I am an indefatigable reader, that alluded to the mind for matters of love, faith, courage, self-sacrifice, and yes, the notorious jihad – jihad-un-nafs – the primordial inner struggle of the soul to overcome the “banality of evil” only upon the conquest of which, the sword is automagically both found and comes unsheathed! And when I used to read comparative religions, I recall also the case of appeal to the heart being true of Hindu scriptures as well as others.
In conclusion, “Cogito Ergo Sum” might have taken a tiny lesson from Zen were it not so imbued in its own arrogance of the intellect and so blinded by its own brilliance to actually have missed the commonsense. Watch Zen Master Bruce Lee so simply teach it here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=roY9SaqM0mo
Caption “We need emotional content. Don’t think, feeeel; it is like a finger pointing away to the moon. Don’t concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory”!
It should be patently obvious to anyone that an intellect voluntarily serving under the command of morality can be the only possible solution for equitable and peaceable “Cogito Ergo Sum” for all mankind, rather than for the ‘uber’ few when it’s put the other way around.
I will humbly further suggest that the clincher empirical proof that morality and intellect are separate entities, that morality is primarily rooted in feelings rather than in the intellect, is that had ordinary people simply retained even an iota of humanity in them, even a tiny feeling of empathy for the suffering of fellowman, for their own natural tribe of mankind, then, instead of intellectually watching the decimation of their own kith and kin all unfold on television looking from the side, at best going tsk tsk, and at worst cheering, we would have collectively marched in formation and forcibly neutered all the hectoring hegemons now so boldly munching on their victims no differently than the lowly wildebeest and buffaloes do against the hectoring hegemons of their jungle!
And no scientist in the universe can argue with a straight face that the poor buffaloes who feel the pain so immensely for their own humble kith and kin as depicted in the video below, are a very cognitive species – a fact also brazenly recognized by our own hectoring hegemons which is perhaps why they work so assiduously on desensitizing our feelings of empathy for our fellowman, including for our ownselves, by continually bringing us all the manufactured Hollywood violence and other baser entertainment: http://youtube.com/watch?v=LU8DDYz68kM
Morality derived from the Intellect leads to Enslavement! Part-II
March 04, 2010
This is Project Humanbeingsfirst’s response to Maryam Sakeenah’s musings in ‘Religion and Morality‘, February 28, 2010, where she begins:
‘Irfan Hussain, in his article ‘Morality and Atheism’ published in DAWN, February 17, 2010, has cited an array of facts and figures to assert his point that despite rising agnostic/atheistic trends in secular Europe, those societies demonstrate better standards of morality as opposed to corrupt and decadent religious societies. This proves, according to Hussain, that there exists no direct link between religion and morality, and that atheism as opposed to religion, is equally moral, if not more. On the face of it, Mr. Hussain is thoroughly correct, given the facts and figures he cites. However, making statistical data the sole basis for drawing assertive conclusions on a subject as complex, multi-layered and profound as the relationship between religion, morality and atheism is at best a forensic approach, very often misleading. The argument misses essential links in its logical progression and, relying merely on a handful of statistics and facile, apparent facts, concludes with a perfunctory yet vigorous assertion. A lot remains to be said.’
I am neither a “Kant”, nor prophet, nor pious philosopher. Just employing ordinary powers of observation that is available to any plebeian, suggests what’s encapsulated in the title of my response. Part-I is elaborated here:
It is also a tad useful to be able to separate philosophical arguments, from those made by any two-bit ‘House Negro’ in the service of the sovereign white man’s mantras du jour! I have no time for House Negroes.
But I do have time for philosophers, truth-tellers of all stripes, and most importantly, those who can reflect beyond the megabits and megabytes, i.e., those who are able to tell the difference between possessing copious amounts of information, and being able to think, reflect – whether or not one reaches the same conclusion, and whether or not one uses the same processes. Bring the arguments borne of reflection, not assertions, and not data-processing. Make clear the axioms upon which arguments are based, and show them to be true, or on what basis these axioms are chosen.
One aspect of the argument brought forth by a commenter to Maryam Sakeenah’s article is very pertinent:
“Is religion necessary for a stable society?”
It is a Bertrand Russell variant: Can Scientific Society be Stable. The metric, “Stable” is very telling. A draconian prison is the most stable system of all if stable is what one wants (the movie Logan’s Run depicts one such stable system for those imagination impaired). That axiom itself may be useful to hectoring hegemons, but not to plebeians, it is not for human beings.
The very framing of the question in that way led Mr. Bertrand Russell, the godhead of atheism in the 20th century, to very sensibly, very logically, and very coherently – perhaps connivingly, or self-servingly are better descriptors based on the pre-set agenda for world government of his Fabian cohorts – assert that a scientific society can only be stable in a police-state! His exact statement:
“World government could only be kept in being by force,” — Impact of Science on Society, pg. 37
Marvelous use of the intellect, logic, and rationalism. I have no use for such logic or intellect, primarily because I do not wish to live in a police-state, nor wish it upon others.
I also have no use for such rationalism because I do not wish euthanasia, population reduction, spreading black-death every generation or so, so that the white races can procreate to their hearts content while the ‘useless eaters’ who tend to multiply faster can be curbed – just like the senior fellow at the National Security Studies Program at Harvard’s Weatherhead Center, Martin Kramer, advocating genocide in Palestine by forcibly reducing the birth rate of its “superfluous young men” as an imperative of the Zionist State’s national security, or NSSM-200 advocating similar measures worldwide as a matter of US National Security imperative – war-mongering and assorted mayhem, including but not limited to the exercise of primacy and hegemony, all very rational logical conclusions given the starting axioms, to be very rationally inflicted upon the ‘untermenschen’ who are usually the direct beneficiaries of these marvelous thinking.
Reason in the logical service of empire is nothing new. See Bertrand Russell’s Impact of Science on Society, Unwin, 1956, as well as the declassified National Security Council documents from the National Archives, to appreciate amoral intellect in the service of empire!
My axioms however are different, the overarching one being putting reason in the service of humanity. Its corollaries are: reason in the service of happiness; reason in the service of compassion, equity, fairness, livability, and justice. Such axioms, very logically, and just as rationally, lead to very different conclusion spaces.
Why is one set of axioms better than the other? Depends on who (or which power) is defining them, what’s their goal, and what’s their “faith” orientation.
Furthermore, in a debate with a priest broadcast on radio, and available in a compilation of essays titled “Why I am not a Christian” – the volume by that title was available in a cheap edition printed in India, but may be found in other compilations in the West – Bertrand Russell conceded that the most correct philosophical position is agnostic. Either of the antipodes, of theism (belief in divine), or atheism (no belief in divine), is entirely faith which can neither be proved, nor disproved.
To see the sort of amoral military-precision thinking the faith of atheism, or perhaps the abuse of the faith of atheism, can take one in the service of empire, just read “The Report from Iron Mountain”!
We can all come up with examples of abuse of faith in divinity as well, the most striking contemporary being Evangelical Christianity bringing on Armageddon upon the ‘untermenschen’ in search of their religious Zionist Rapture under tutelage from the ‘god’s chosen peoples’.
So omitting all abuse, and all services to empire, in any and every guise, what is left?
What is left are the core-axioms. And as Maryam Sakeenah’s musings also note, the same compassionate axioms, as opposed to misanthropic ones, are the underpinnings of Islam. Thank you for drawing attention to it.
The same core-axioms can also be the underpinnings of any system, any system that is, which puts the intellect in the service of the heart, and not hegemony.
And this can be just as true of theism as atheism! The reason being, all possess the heart. And sublime love lives in it. Unless of course it belongs to the pathocratically sociopathic hectoring hegemons! While they might posses a physical heart (I seriously doubt even that), it most assuredly has no characteristics in common with the rest of ordinary humanity!
Not being a philosopher of immanent spaces but rather grounded in empiricism, the aforementioned examination I believe is sufficient response to the afore-mentioned commenter’s next question:
“Can morality exist without religion?”
The same commenter’s third question, which was actually asked first in the list of three questions he put forth:
“Is religion right?”
is as meaningless as asking ‘is atheism right?’!
It is for none other to decide than for each one for one’s own-self. A person’s faith is no one else’s business. And a group harboring the same set of shared values, common beliefs, have every right to form their own self-governance according to principles derived from those values and beliefs if they choose to do so – so long as they do not wage wars of conquest upon others based upon those principles! Who is an atheist or agnostic to question the basic right of belief and congregation with the question: “is religion right?”
Atheism is just as much a faith based ‘religion’, and their own godfather has already rationally conceded that point. On what basis can such a right for self-governance be denied to any group based on their own shared values, whether theist, or atheist? This is just a truism response. Even if atheism is merged with agnosticism, it does not alter that truism.
(Note that: agnostic may mean any or all of: don’t know about it; don’t care about it; neutral on the question; can’t be proved either way; and don’t care to live under the jackboot of any priestly-class regardless of one’s personal beliefs or lack thereof.)
The problem however which is introduced, and because of which perhaps such a question does become pertinent, is hinted at by the last item in parenthesis above: when the group lives in heterogeneity with other groups of differing religion and beliefs, but must be governed by one set of laws without encroaching on anyone else’s rights. Whose law should prevail, whose values and legislations should determine public morality, rights, privileges? If that is the purpose behind the question “Is religion right?”, then this is an implementation problem, and not a philosophical one.
And there is no conundrum because the solution is also almost a blatant truism.
If the universal axioms of justice and fairness noted above are the common ground, or can be made common ground axioms (as opposed to corporatocracy, primacy, supremacy, elitism), then there is no rational reason that such basic, universal, and commonsensical rules and values as the Ten Commandments, and The Golden Rule (do unto others as you have others do unto you; and its first corollary: if it is good enough for you to do to me, it is good enough for me to do to you; and its second corollary: if it is bad for me to do to you, then it is bad for you to do to me; and its third corollary: no one shall take unfair advantage of another), cannot become the basis of common-law which govern universal common rights, the Bill of Rights. Individual ethnic courts may administer any family/personal/particularized law based on the individual’s specific belief system, with such particularizations being fully contained under the umbrella of the universal common law, and self-consistent with it.
(Note: The first and second corollaries to the Golden Rule are Noam Chomsky vintage. The third pithy corollary is the fundamental student honor code at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, USA, aka CALTECH, from which all practice of morality remarkably follows: “No member of the Caltech community shall take unfair advantage of any other member of the Caltech community.” http://admissions.caltech.edu/techers/honorcode )
As one can immediately see, it is just a matter of careful system design in the interest of the often needlessly quarrelsome people, rather than in the interest of preserving elitist privileges. It is not a matter of abstract philosophical debate, nor a matter of denigrating religion, or to subvert faith except for primacy. And it is as applicable to countering the scientific dictatorship of modernity emanating from the globalist hectoring hegemons, as that of any priestly class in any and all religions since time immemorial.
To conclude then, today it is the ‘white man’s burden’ that is the problem. Not religion.
Secular humanism is their agenda. And subverting all religions, breaking apart all traditions, breaking apart the family unit, and replacing faith as the cohesive uniting force with scientific global dictatorship which views mankind as cattle to be centrally spawned, managed, utilized, and end-of-life’d, is the endgame. Faith in something outside of our existence, in Divinity, is their greatest obstacle (see: http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2010/10/between-islam-and-secular-humanism.html ).
And those discussing religion, or endeavoring to make it the center of focus in the middle of hegemonic conquests for world government, better start comprehending that agenda of subversive “cognitive infiltration” and pertinently contextualize their exposition. The house negro as well as the patsy apparently grow quite ubiquitously in the modernity du jour. No exponent of truth among the ‘untermensch’ harboring a real heart, atheist or theist, would wish to be among them. This is most pertinent for Muslims today.
Our values, our religion is under attack from all sides, including by highlighting the abuses and excesses which have crept into Muslim cultural practices and/or attributed to us (e.g. Islamofascism). It is calculatingly designed to force us into the discussion of religion of Islam instead of unraveling the Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives for world government (see: http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2007/12/islamofascism-zionofascism-judeofascism.html ).
Attacks on others’ religions will soon follow. Rather than defend one’s religion, which one can’t, defend one’s own-self and one’s kith by minimally comprehending and unmasking modernity which is being entirely orchestrated through multiple Hegelian Dialectic. The successive “Hegelian mind fcks” is making even the most brilliant people lose perspective. The religion of Islam, as all other great religions of mankind, stands on its own. Islam needs no defending. But Muslims do!
What is an Intellectual Negro?
February 09, 2010 | Updated October 29, 2010
Let’s begin by studying the very basic types of mental servitude. Let’s start with Malcolm X’s version of the ‘Negro’:
“There was two kind of slaves.
There was the house Negro and the field Negro.
The house Negro, they lived in the house, with massa. They dressed pretty good. They ate good, cause they ate his food, what he left. They lived in the attic or the basement, but still they lived near their master, and they loved their master, more than their master loved himself. They would give their life to save their master’s house quicker than their master would.
The house Negro, if the master said ‘we got a good house here’, the house Negro say ‘yeah, we got a good house here’.
Whenever the master would said we, he’d say we. That’s how you can tell a house Negro.
If the master’s house caught on fire, the house Negro would fight harder to put the blaze out than the master would. If the master got sick, the house Negro would say ‘What’s the matter, boss, we sick?’ We sick!
He identified himself with his master, more than his master identified with himself.
And if you came to the house Negro and said ‘let’s run away, let’s escape, let’s separate’, the house Negro would look at you and say ‘man, you crazy! What you mean separate? Where is there a better house than this? Where can I wear better clothes than this? Where can I eat better food than this?’
That was that house Negro.
In those days, he was called a house nigger. And that’s what we call him today, ’cause we still got some house niggers runnin around here.
This modern house Negro loves his master. He wants to live near him.
He’ll pay three times as much as the house is worth just to live near his master, and then brag about ‘I’m the only Negro out here. I’m the only one on my job. I’m the only one in this school.’ You’re nothing but a house Negro!
And if someone come to you right now and say ‘let’s separate’, you say the same thing that the house Negro said on the plantation: ‘What you mean separate? From America? This good white man? Where you gonna get a better job than you get here? I mean this is what you say. ‘I ain’t left nothing in Africa’. That’s what you say.
Why, you left your mind in Africa!
On that same plantation, there was the field Negro.
The field Negro, those were the masses. There was always more Negroes in the field than there was Negroes in the house.
The Negro in the field caught hell. He ate leftovers.
In the house they ate high up on the hog. The Negro in the field didn’t get nothing but what was left of the insides of the hog.
They call them chetlands nowadays. In those days they called them what they were, guts!
That’s what you were, a guteater. And some of you are still guteaters!
The field Negro was beaten, from morning till night.
He lived in a shack, in a hut. He wore cast-off clothes.
He hated his master. I say, he hated his master.
He was intelligent.
That house Negro loved his master. But that field Negro, remember, they were in the majority, and they hated their master.
When the house caught on fire, he didn’t try to put it out, that field Negro prayed for a wind. For a breeze!
When the master got sick, the field Negro prayed that he died.
If someone come to the field Negro and said ‘let’s separate, let’s run.’ He didn’t say ‘Where we going?’ he said ‘Any place is better than here’.
We got field Negroes in America today.
I’m a field Negro.
The masses are the field Negroes.
When they see this man’s house on fire, you don’t hear these little Negroes talkin bout ‘Our Government is in trouble’. They say ‘thee Government is in trouble.’
Imagine a Negro, ‘our Government’. I even heard one say ‘our astronauts.’ They won’t even let him near the plant, and ‘our astronauts’. ‘Our Navy’. That’s a Negro that’s out of his mind.
That’s a Negro that’s out of his mind!
Just as the slave master in that day, used Tom, the house Negro, to keep the field Negroes in check.
The same ‘ol slavemaster today, has Negroes, who are nothing but modern Uncle Toms. 20th century Uncle Toms, to keep you and me in check.
Keep us under control. Keep us passive and peaceful. And nonviolent. That’s Tom making you nonviolent.
It’s like when you go to the dentist, and the man is going to take your tooth. You’re going to fight him, when he start pulling. So they squirt some stuff in your jaw called Novocain, to make you think they are not doing anything to you. So you sit there and because you got all that Novocain in your jaw, you suffer peacefully. Hahahaha.
There’s nothing in our Book, the Qur’an, as you call it, Koran, teaches us to suffer peacefully.
Our religion teaches us to be intelligent. Be peaceful. Be courteous. Obey the law. Respect everyone.
But if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery!
That’s a good religion. In fact, that’s that old-time religion. That’s the one that Ma and Pa used to talk about.
An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth, and a head for a head, and a life for a life.
That’s a good religion.
And then anybody, no one resist that kind of religion being taught but a wolf, who intends to make you his meal.
This is the way it is with the white man in America. He’s a wolf, and you’re sheep.
Anytime a shepherd, a pastor, teach you and me not to run from the white man, and at the same time teach us don’t fight the white man, he’s a traitor, to you and me.
Don’t lay down our life all by itself. No! Preserve your life. It’s the best thing you got.
And if you got to give it up, let it be Even Steven.” — (Transcription by Project Humanbeingsfirst.org of Malcolm X, House Negro vs. Field Negro speech, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQ_VWpJj0Dw )
Many more complex shades of the ‘Negro’ have been cultivated in modernity than the one Malcolm X had been exposed to. One new shade that I have been grappling with for some time is the “intellectual Negro”. This is a breed neither captured by X above, nor by MLK Jr. below:
‘The white establishment is skilled in flattering and cultivating emerging leaders. It presses its own image on them and finally, from imitation of manners, dress, and style of living, a deeper strain of corruption develops. This kind of Negro leader acquires the white man’s contempt for the ordinary Negro. He is often more at home with the middle-class white than he is among his own people. His language changes, his location changes, his income changes, and ultimately he changes from the representative of the Negro to the white man into the white man’s representative to the Negro. The tragedy is that too often he does not recognize what has happened to him.’ — (Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope, page 307)
This new shade of the servile Negro has become ubiquitous among Muslims today, especially among Pakistanis and Arabs. This kind is familiar to us under the nom de guerre ‘fabricated dissent’, a pernicious variant of ‘native informant‘.
This Negro is very sophisticated, and often very intelligent with advanced academic and/or public credentials. This Negro will appear to hector the white man and the white man’s establishment, while still managing to echo their core-axioms.
Thus, the hectoring, i.e., challenging the visible narratives of power, serves the function of appearing to be on the side of the ‘field Negro’, but in reality he is still a ‘house Negro’ without speaking in that ‘we’ vernacular.
Here is an example: the first article hectors the white man, the second one echoes its core axioms:
And here is another one which does the same all in one article:
And here is deconstructing another intellectual Negro who ostensibly hectors power while still managing to echo its key message:
Here is the latest variant who shamelessly sides with power spinning absurdities:
The “Hegelian Mind Fck” behind such “cognitive infiltration” of the discourse space, to both spin red herrings through Machiavellian interjection of fabricated “diversity”, as well as synthesize controlled clashes of opposites for raising a new phoenix from its ashes, is examined in much depth in the following tutorials:
I fear one would be very hard pressed to find an exception to the “intellectual Negro” in Pakistan from among our uber-educated literati, from among our well-funded ‘humanist’ NGOs, especially the Human Rights Organizations, the Left as well as the Right, and the new ‘occidentosis plague‘ we seemed to have picked up: think-tanks staffed with our finest Negroes of all shades, including also ‘field Negroes’ employed as cover, dupes, and patsies.
Layered atop the foundational layer of de facto mental colonization of the ‘Negro’, is the layer of fabricated deception purveyors based on shared ideology. And on top of that is another pernicious layer based on apparently our natural trait: our meagre price.
These three colonizing mental forces combined in various shades tend to create many more Negro types. The ‘price’ aspect is particularly pernicious – this price today is far more insidious than the mere ‘lifafa’, the bottle of whiskey, or even the trip to Disneyland of yesteryear as narrated by Brig. Tirmazi in his book “Profiles of Intelligence” Ch 3, page 45. His exact words:
‘A lot has been said and written by some of our American friends about the price of a Pakistani. Dr. Andrew V. Corry, US Counsel General at Lahore, once said, “Price of a Pakistani oscillates between a free trip to the US and a bottle of whisky.” He may not be too far wrong. We did observe some highly placed Pakistanis selling their conscience, prestige, dignity and self-respect for a small price.’ — (See Who Killed Benazir Bhutto in her own words in Chapter 35 of vol. 1 for extended excerpts of the price of a Pakistani)
This is why the Pakistani intellectual Negro can blithely claim with a straight face: ‘Is the Check in the Mail? The Confessions of a Groveling Pakistani Native Orientalist’! ( Pervez Hoodbhoy http://www.counterpunch.org/hoodbhoy12142009.html ). See my response and open letter in Chapter 19 and Chapter 20 of vol. 2.
Every mentally colonized people acutely suffering from the plague of occidentosis have their own fair share of this intellectual Negro. This is Iran’s:
And this is the Arab world’s – not so much an intellectual Negro, but an outright un-apologetic House Negro – Professor Fouad Ajami of Johns Hopkins. It is fascinating to appreciate it in his own vernacular, in his autobiographical Dream Palace of the Arabs: A Generation’s Odyssey:
‘Today in Arab World – I left for America a day or two short of my eighteenth birthday, in 1963 – I am a stranger, but no distance could wash me clean of that inheritance.’ (page 24)
That bit of statement of fact from his autobiography was of course left un-stated as Professor Fouad Ajami was daily paraded on mainstream television and presented to the American viewers as an objective “expert” on the Middle East. He was always there right alongside all the objective expert Pentagon Generals and various other think-tank pundits during the immense “doctrinal motivation” buildup to Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2002-2003! Here is another gem from his autobiography:
‘I knew little of religion. My family were Shia Muslims. … None of my peers I recall, observed religious ritual or went to the mosque for Friday prayers. We were not a religious breed. Our lodestar was the secular political and cultural world. … Fate had played with the lives of men and women, and it had dealt the Palestinians what it had. This sensibility could not be mine or my generation’s as a whole.’ (page 12,13)
It is therefore unsurprising that Professor Fouad Ajami finds much favor with Zionist Islamophobes like Daniel Pipes, and of course with the New York Times. The reason I do not consider Dr. Fouad Ajami an ‘intellectual Negro’, but rather just an ordinary ‘House Negro’, is because Ajami is very straightforward. He forthrightly speaks in the vernacular “we”. The poor chap is outright suffering from occidentosis in its most basic form: he is more white than the white man! And to his credit, he is also un-apologetic about it. The white man thus adores native informants him! And why wouldn’t he? The following is an excerpt from an un-published review of Fouad Ajami’s autobiographical book, from Chapter 9 of my own 2003 maiden work, Prisoners of the Cave:
‘In many places in the Dream Palace, Dr. Fouad Ajami provides insightful commentaries on the state of the Arab world. It can actually be quite an enjoyable book for its wit with some gems of quotations from Arab poets. But it is also an upsetting book as a politically indoctrinating propaganda for the Zionists. It is replete with prejudice and misrepresentation of facts through carefully crafted omissions of history and its selective retelling – especially by someone of Arab Muslim origin turned Zionist sympathizer. It appears from his book that Fouad Ajami greatly admires the assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Rabin. Laudatorily calls him “a son of Zionist pioneers”, and scorns the intellectuals in the Palestinian Diaspora for their “maximalist” and unrealistic “right of return” position against Israel.
His entire articulation seems to me to be a thinly disguised glorification of Israel, and his opinions mirror those of the Israeli establishment. There is nothing wrong with that per se – one always feels closer to one’s own people. But there is something incredibly devious about not openly projecting Fouad Ajami as spokesperson for Israel as he is paraded on mainstream television, but rather always as an expert on the Middle East purveying a neutral and informed perspective on the conflagration there. Whereas on the very rare occasion when the other side is invited, it is made abundantly clear that they speak for the Arab perspective. The subtleties of subliminal manipulation is not lost on any astute observer. But of course, on everyone else in America who are its victim.
Thus, when Fouad Ajami speaks or writes, he dwells on the Palestinian suicide bombers like any Israeli, and omits Israel’s incessant killing of innocent Palestinian children, women, and men on a daily basis, the deliberate demolition of their homes with armored bulldozers making large families homeless on their own lands again and again forcing them to life in refugee tents, or any of the facts that have already been exposed earlier in this book. He glowingly talks of Israel’s great economy, and conveniently fails to mention the billions of dollars of American tax payer’s wealth and the mighty military-industrial complex defense contracts that Israel receives from America annually which makes that economy run in proxy services to the hectoring hegemons.
He berates the Arab dictators and their despotism in those societies, and fails to mention how these same dictators are propped up by active support of the Americans – even as he allows other voices to mildly say these things in his book, he never says them himself. He praises the Arab kings who journey to Israel, and fails to mention the reality of these kings – who put them there in the first place and whose interests they really represent.
His book is replete with sins of omission and misrepresentation in the guise of pseudo psychoanalysis of the Arab psyche, and especially of the Palestinian population in Diaspora. Professor Ajami’s dominant appearance in the mainstream news media when no other voices of dissent are allowed to rebut his propaganda, makes him especially powerful in molding public opinion. And he is indeed permitted to hold sway over the minds of the unsuspecting American public mainly because he serves the purpose of empire. Due to this fact, it is imperative and fair to expose his inimical biases against the very people whom he is being called upon to offer his “objective” opinion, so that all may judge for themselves.
So, when Fouad Ajami opines, it must remain clear to the American audience that he does not represent anyone but himself and his Zionist masters. That, his Middle Eastern appearance, accent, and enormous heritage are an inconvenient baggage from which, by his own admission: “no distance could wash me clean of that inheritance.” That, his political views and purported analyses only project the one-sided perspective of the approximately 4 million Zionist Jewish population of Israel and their few hundred thousand backers and financiers in America diabolically orchestrating their Eretz Yisrael on the backs of the conquered superpower du jour. That, Professor Fouad Ajami does not betray the tortuous realities on the ground for the over 100 million Arab Muslims anymore than his Zionist masters. That, Fouad Ajami is in fact, their House Negro!’
So, what’s the antidote for such a pernicious disease which is spreading rapidly among a small population of the ‘untermenschen’?
I feel that as in the yesteryear, the solution to overcome these dreaded cancers of de facto mental colonization are also the same: un-colonized, un co-opted, clear-headed, inspiring leadership by the fearless who can both instill some pride among the people, and stand up unfettered to the hectoring hegemons. Such leadership can only arise from among the ‘field Negroes’ – I don’t see it happening at all from among the mentally colonized ‘house Negroes’.
Flashback Excerpts – Dialog among Civilizations Between a Pooka Rabbit and Zahir Ebrahim
Original Document March 2007 | Flashback Excerpts pertinent to the possible invasion of Iran and Pakistan September 22, 2010
This is a dialog between two friends, me, and my best friend from childhood, Harveyetta. Or simply Harvey, as I like to call her. Albeit she likes to call herself yetta. Harvey is a quintessential realist. She examines the world around her and only makes her conclusions based upon what she observes through her five senses, and only as a perfect Poisson process. What this means is that she soon forgets what she has seen or heard in the past, and concentrates on the reality du jour as it contemporaneously unfolds around her. So sometimes I also call her “Ms. Reality”. Of course, as she also happens to be a 7 feet tall gorgeous female Pooka Rabbit who seems to have befriended me for no particular reason, the nonsequitur does not bother me as much. She often disappears for years, and then sometimes shows up out of nowhere becoming my constant companion for days with no explanations for her absence; and I certainly ask for none fearful of learning of her infidelities in strange lands. Except that she always brings back the imprints of the region and the peoples that her travels have taken her, as her own manifest personality du jour. Thus sometimes I get a virtual tour of new peoples and new civilizations and often learn a lot during her short mercurial visits.
So when I serendipitously ran into her earlier today at a local cafe-cum-bookstore sipping Turkish coffee at a table all by herself, and apparently looking for a Fibonacci partner, I was ecstatic! The strangest thing was, no one could see her, but me – what a beautiful mind, huh?
Now me, I am the super surrealist, with an infinitely long memory. I never forget a thing, going as far back in time as the beginning of recorded history, and before that to the passing of verbal history, going all the way back to the Neanderthal period. Thus I am fully acquainted with the tools used to settle disputes over the past 100,000 years! Not a whole lot has changed since the club was discovered by our ancestors to beat the poor harmless Neanderthals into extinction. Thus I perceive the world unlike anyone else ever can, in its full surreal context, with what is kept veiled, as well as with what is made manifest. How much further apart can two friends be?
Even more interestingly, I am an ordinary plebeian of Muslim descent from Pakistan. Harvey is an atheist of blue blood lineage, and is at least 3000 years old, or so she claims! Her last visit seems to have been to the Holy Lands of Galilee in Canaan, for she was acting remarkably like a staunch Zionist du jour, as one might encounter for instance, at DanielPipes.org or …
EXCERPTS (page 13)
Was I just being delusional, given that my best friend is a 7 ft. tall Pooka Rabbit that no one else can see, or were the perspectives of history and a bit of rational commonsense trying to teach a lesson before it was too late – one day at a time? A time to act? But act how? The whole world was and is fighting the “war on terrorism” against the “Islamic evil jihadis” that President Bush says “I don’t think you can win it” (see interview here39).
But they must persist in fighting it precisely in the same way to create more of it, until the new détente arrives on the Grand Chessboard as predicted by Brzezinski that it invariably shall, when the World War IV will indeed miraculously vanish into a new multi-polar world, once again effectively stalemating each other with ‘MAD’ness! His shrewd wisdom of realpolitik from his book explains how to make the “sustained exercise abroad of genuinely imperial power” congenial to the palate of a “populist democracy” in order “to perpetuate America’s own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer” as its only window of opportunity:
“It is also a fact that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America’s power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public’s sense of domestic well-being. The economic self-denial (that is defense spending), and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization…. Moreover, as America becomes an increasingly multicultural society, it may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat… More generally, cultural change in America may also be uncongenial to the sustained exercise abroad of genuinely imperial power. That exercise requires a high degree of doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment, and patriotic gratification.” — (Zbigniew Brzezinski in The Grand Chessboard, New York, Basic Books, 1997)
Indeed, “That exercise requires a high degree of doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment” to keep fighting a perpetual war, namely, against “radical Islam” and the “evil jihadis”. The latter will very likely be made to magically disappear and dismissed as some inconsequential “stirred up Moslems” once again when the geostrategic imperatives have been achieved, just as they were magically conjured up to win World War III by the CIA to start with!
Brzezinski, or perhaps his venerable ghost will proudly appear in the year 2038, and will once again glibly claim:
‘Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. What is most important to the history of the world? Some stirred-up Moslems or the conquest of Eurasia and its natural wealth and stalemating China at the end of the war on terrorism? It is said that the West had a global policy in regard to Islam. That is stupid. There isn’t a global Islam. Look at Islam in a rational manner and without demagoguery or emotion. It is the leading religion of the world with 1.5 billion followers. But what is there in common among Saudi Arabian fundamentalism, moderate Morocco, Pakistan militarism, Egyptian pro-Western or Central Asian secularism? Nothing more than what unites the Christian countries.’ — (Noted by a future historian in 2038 at the conclusion of World War IV)
The following is what Zbigniew Brzezinski had confessed ten years after the conclusion of World War III, in 1998 in an interview:
‘Brzezinski: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.
Q: And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic fundamentalism, having given arms and advice to future terrorists?
Brzezinski: What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?’ — (Interview of President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski on CIA’s covert Intervention in Afghanistan in 1979 – given to the French magazine Le Nouvel Observateur, Paris, 15-21, January 1998, see here40)
And the world will merely spectate on in 2038, just as it did in 1998 when the covert operation that led to the destruction of Afghanistan as a consequence of “giving to the USSR its Vietnam war” at the mere expense of “some stirred-up Moslems” was revealed. The new generation of erudite scholars will hurriedly compose their distant remorseless histories of faits accomplis of how the ‘world was craftily won’ as the desired stratagem on the Grand Chessboard was trivially purchased with the tabula rasa of innocent peoples who did all the suffering and dying for the “Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives” of the handful of ‘Hectoring Hegemons‘ in Washington:
“… the U.S. Policy goals must be un-apologetically twofold: to perpetuate America’s own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer.”
To me, this efficient reuse of the same ‘contraception’ device seemed incredibly original, which perhaps only the modern day Straussian imperial thinkers could have possibly conjured up – giving the devil its due – use it effectively one way, then turn it inside out and still make it work even more effectively a second time!
First ABUSE ISLAM one way with “God is on your side” (it is shocking to see Brzezinski goad on Afghan mujahideen to “Islamic jihad” here41, and Ronald Reagan gleefully honor them at the White House as “moral equivalent of America’s founding fathers” for their wonderful “jihad” against the “evil” Soviet empire here42) to screw a competing superpower from the backside to win World War III at the expense of “Some stirred-up Moslems”.
Then, dexterously turn the same “stirred-up Moslems” inside out after ‘day-1’ of god’s work is done and radicalism that was so carefully nurtured throughout the 1980s has finally taken firm root in the wild untamed frontiers of that region at a heavy price to the indigenous peoples themselves, and MAKE IT WORK AGAIN on ‘day-2’ in the service of empire in a new Great Game by fanning its mutated form for now achieving “full spectrum dominance” (see Chapter 3 of Joint Vision 2020 available here18 or here43) in the guise of fighting “RADICAL ISLAM” (see here44) in a perpetual “World War IV” (see etymology here45, more details here46). Because, shrewdly enough, “democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization … except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public’s sense of domestic well-being”! And not to forget that the much coveted military “transformation” for “full spectrum dominance” and “imperial mobilization” by the military-industrial complex required a dramatic increase in defense spending which had lamentably dwindled after the Cold War, and an increase in which wasn’t possible unless “some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor”!
‘Genesis’ did take 6 days – we are only into day-2 of its ‘transformative’ re-genesis for ‘full spectrum dominance’ by some of god’s choicest chosen peoples!
Thus the surreality behind the “war on terrorism”, and the reasons for the on going “doctrinal motivation” of maligning Islam – a world’s great religion of 1.5 billion peoples – by the despicable ideological drum beaters like Daniel Pipes and Bernard Lewis et. al. who hide behind the legal covers of academic freedom of speech to spread hatred and fear in order to continue making the “sustained exercise abroad of genuinely imperial power” congenial to the peoples of their “populist democracy”, is only as secret as clicking here16 to read the American Mein Kampf Part-II – Rebuilding America’s Defenses September 2000, a Report of the Project for the New American Century (see here47):
“Until the process of transformation is treated as an enduring military mission – worthy of constant allocation of dollars and forces – it will remain stillborn. … Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor”
“The Price of American Preeminence: The program we advocate – one that would provide America with forces to meet the strategic demands of the world’s sole superpower – requires budget levels to be increased to 3.5 to 3.8 percent of the GDP.”
“… Also this expanding perimeter argues for new overseas bases and forward operating locations to facilitate American political and military operations around the world.”
“… Keeping the American peace requires the U.S. Military to undertake a broad array of missions today and rise to very different challenges tomorrow, …”
Keeping the American peace – indeed! The American Mein Kampf Part-1 noted it similarly:
“… the ultimate objective of American policy should be benign and visionary: to shape a truly cooperative global community.” (The Grand Chessboard, 1997)
Hitler too merely wanted to keep the ‘German peace’! And the Israelis too similarly only want to keep the ‘Zionist peace’ (as noted here28), and both the hectoring hegemons du jour “truly” wish to “shape” a “cooperative global community” cooperating with them on their terms so that Thomas Friedman’s euphemistic “hidden hand” can stay ready-but-sheathed – unless some obdurate nations or a spirited peoples dare to not be a part of their suzerainty – since it “is also a fact that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America’s power, especially its capacity for military intimidation.”
And of course also since “that exercise requires” a lot of extra coordinated work at all levels on the “doctrinal motivation”, “intellectual commitment” and “patriotic gratification” fronts along with suitable “conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public’s sense of domestic well-being” existing. Or propagandistically crafted, as was so audaciously instrumented keeping a straight Washingtonian face with the ‘WMD’ mantra for setting up the Iraq invasion in 2002-2003 before its own gullible peoples; and for the rest of the world, “its capacity for military intimidation” was unsheathed with the Goebbellian “either you are with us, or with the terrorists” threat!
But all of this extra work is of course still preferable due to the “Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity” at opportune moments as dictated by the “primacy and its geostrategic imperatives” of the lone superpower because, primarily, the “victor will not be asked afterward whether he told the truth or not” (Hitler)! In the invasion of a systematically disarmed sitting duck, or a lame duck, by the world’s most fearsome nuclear armed military might, victory is always imagined to be a sure bet! Daarth Vaider could not have imagined an easier victory with his Death-Star!
The lead chief American prosecutor at the Nuremberg Military Tribunals had found it so easy to un-hesitatingly condemn the bespectating world and the “Good Germans” for their ignorance of Hitler’s plans after the Nazis had been comprehensively defeated: (Justice Robert H. Jackson in his closing speech at Nuremberg, on Friday, 7/26/1946: Morning Session: Part 3, in Trial of the Major War Criminals before the International Military Tribunal. See here30)
“The plans of Adolf Hitler for aggression were just as secret as Mein Kampf, of which over six million copies were published in Germany”,
and indicted the Nazis so unequivocally for their aggression by passing death sentences:
“We charge unlawful aggression but we are not trying the motives, hopes, or frustrations which may have led Germany to resort to aggressive war as an instrument of policy. The law, unlike politics, does not concern itself with the good or evil in the status quo, nor with the merits of the grievances against it. It merely requires that the status quo be not attacked by violent means and that policies be not advanced by war. We may admit that overlapping ethnological and cultural groups, economic barriers, and conflicting national ambitions created in the 1930’s, as they will continue to create, grave problems for Germany as well as for the other peoples of Europe. We may admit too that the world had failed to provide political or legal remedies which would be honorable and acceptable alternatives to war. We do not underwrite either the ethics or the wisdom of any country, including my own, in the face of these problems. But we do say that it is now, as it was for sometime prior to 1939, illegal and criminal for Germany or any other nation to redress grievances or seek expansion by resort to aggressive war.”
“But justice in this case has nothing to do with some of the arguments put forth by the defendants or their counsel. We have not previously and we need not now discuss the merits of all their obscure and tortuous philosophy. We are not trying them for the possession of obnoxious ideas. It is their right, if they choose, to renounce the Hebraic heritage in the civilization of which Germany was once a part. Nor is it our affair that they repudiated the Hellenic influence as well. The intellectual bankruptcy and moral perversion of the Nazi regime might have been no concern of international law had it not been utilized to goosestep the Herrenvolk across international frontiers. It is not their thoughts, it is their overt acts which we charge to be crimes. Their creed and teachings are important only as evidence of motive, purpose, knowledge, and intent.”,
that one is left to wonder if that is what it takes for the ‘Mein Kampfs’ du jour and the “goosestep[ing] the Herrenvolk across international frontiers” into Afghanistan and Iraq, and perhaps now into Iran, to be unequivocally recognized and condemned as such?
That this appears to be true even when the aggression planners un-apologetically call themselves “hectoring Hegemons” in the characteristic ‘in your face’ arrogance of all chauvinist ubermensch as they continue to rehearse the “doctrinal motivation” of “war on terrorism” against “radical Islam” for the public in order to keep sending America’s patriotic sons and daughters to their slaughter, never mind what they do to the “lesser” peoples “goosestep[ing] the Herrenvolk across international frontiers”, should be disconcerting for any non-hare brained person in the world, but especially for the American public themselves.
The following is a snapshot of “Document Summary” of the PDF property of “Rebuilding America’s Defenses”. The author’s field says it all (see here29 for a detailed expansion of this author’s field and their various doctrinal contributions to what only Dr. Goebbels would feel proud, as in here48):
What will it take for the un-courageous bespectating world to call a spade a spade? A victor’s justice?
The power of “Noble Lies”, and the “ubermensch” imperatives of its Nietzscheian exponents that blinds the commonsense of any “Good Germans”!
Those able to see through this thin charade plainly, and are conscionable activists enough to want to protest or speak-out, are being systematically marginalized with various labels, from “conspiracy theorists” to “trouble makers”, to perhaps even “terrorists” with the blessings of the New USA Patriot Acts as the new legal cover.
Indeed, the FBI and the Homeland Security agents themselves had shown up at my home, twice, just before the “hidden hand of the market” was once again about to unload its gentle largess of “operation Iraqi Freedom” in 2003, to question me, ostensibly in hot pursuit of some unknown “terrorists” whose name “string matched” mine in a few letters of the alphabet – or so they said. I had been covering all the major protest marches at that time, being both participant and very visible photographer, and usually in the very front row, right behind the police lines and often chatting with them developing a rapport and friendship in preemptive self-defense just in case some agent provocateur decided that the protests were too darn peaceful! It was trivial to ID me – as I wasn’t making any attempts to keep a low profile, to the contrary, cut an interesting and very visible figure with three small kids in tow in the very first row, juggling the camera gear and their small hands with tears of anguish down my cheeks for another defenseless civilians about to experience American “shock and awe”.
And it was as a consequence of their unwelcome visit to my home that broke the camels back, so to speak, and I penned my first book in April 2003 in an Herculean night and day effort where the words just seemed to flow effortlessly like a dam burst as Baghdad burned with Colin Powell’s “Shock and Awe” and the Euphrates turned red with the blood of the innocent. The smoke and mirrors deception was all too obvious to me, but not to the American peoples. At the time, no publisher picked up my manuscript, six outright rejected it (among the seven who responded, about two dozen didn’t bother to respond), and this despite a generous letter of commendation written by the famous American Historian, Howard Zinn, on my behalf! And in 2005, the Iraq Study Group reached the same findings after the dastardly crime was fait accompli and a civilization lay in ruins, but quite disingenuously couched it merely as oops, “a major intelligence failure”!
An ordinary person, moi, smarter than all of America’s and Britain’s vast intelligence agencies with their billions of dollars in funds and spyware to monitor and surveil the globe? When did that happen? Is Alice awake or asleep?
How could I possibly explain all this years of accumulated hysteresis and silent anguish in my surreal brain to my realist hare-brained best friend as she impatiently questioned me, even if only as a glimpse into my own surreal world but nevertheless still like jumping into the middle of a fast paced Tom Clancy or Dan Brown novel, and have any realistic expectations of the sweet thing believing me?
Harvey’s long sojourn in the Holy Lands had entirely bestowed upon her a different world view, one of whatever that was plainly manifest on the shadow screen: 19 “evil jihadis”, stone throwing Palestinians, Israel under siege, “radical Islam”, “militant Islam”, and a massively nuclear armed superpower put under orange alert Defcon-10 by a man on a dialysis machine from an underground cave 20,000 miles away! It was exactly as if Hitler had come back from his shallow grave to reassert:
“[I will] give a propagandist reason for starting the war [and don’t] mind whether it was plausible or not. The victor will not be asked afterward whether he told the truth or not. In starting and waging a war it is not the right that matters, but victory.” (Adolph Hitler)
Except that the new version was even more potent. There was a real devastating 911 enabler to back it up! Was it another operation “Canned Goods”? Especially since it became sacrilegious to even think this question starting the very day it happened, that how could it have possibly happened? People still look at you funny today six and a half years later if you raise it in polite company, think you are a kook, and wanna have nothing to do with you. Even your best intellectual friends get angry at you, as did one very prominent and brilliant Pakistani theoretical physicist who has several degrees from MIT and claims to have been a major anti-war activist in the 1970s and continually posits himself as the quintessential gadfly. He “scolded” me and even refused to read an earlier version of this presentation that I had sent him for his kind comments.
The biggest names whom I had been inspired by all my life, left me standing alone on the most pivotal question regarding the first cause enabler of the most momentous monumental international crime of naked aggression against defenseless nations that can ever be faced by anyone in their life that they could actually do something about to unravel and stop dead in its tracks while it is still occurring.
Even Noam Chomsky, my erstwhile distinguished professor when I was a student at MIT, “arguably the most important intellectual alive” according to the epithet adorned on him by the New York Times, refrained from discussing the “How” and focused on the “Why” in his best selling booklet “911” that became the international “cliff-notes-to-911” from supposedly the “chief dissenting priest” in the West. Indeed, all of a sudden, all the major well known intellectuals of the proverbial “dissent space”, after spending a lifetime drawing attention to the lies and deceit of incantations of power, discovered the new religion of trust and faith in the statements coming out of the Pentagon and the White House concerning 911. Many of them have surely made incredible wealth writing and selling books outlining various scenarios on “Why” 9/11 occurred wherein not a single one asks ‘How could it have possibly occurred in the first place?’ Perhaps they may donate 100% of their proceeds to the widows and families of the victims of 911 worldwide?
Most “experts” have now miraculously become exponents of Harvey’s own original intellectual contribution to this discussion space, the “chaos theory”, as the likely “how”. Even the distinguished journalist whom almost everyone touts as the most profound and courageous journalist of our time, the fearless Robert Fisk, tepidly stays away from “conspiracy theories” and continually keeps reminding his audience about the “why” part, never the “how” part for which even he takes the word of the war party who benefited the most from the shocking crime of 911.
Indeed, in 2003, I had publicly put this question before Robert Fisk in the question answer session after his talk, and his deflecting response so indelibly etched in my infinite memory: “I live in the land of conspiracy theories [in Beirut, Lebanon, but he meant Arabs in general have this proclivity], and since there is no concrete evidence to demonstrate there is one [covert-operation or some complicity due to ample pre-warning as had been noted by the French writers Brisard and Dasquié in ‘Forbidden Truth’, 2002], I am not going to go there”!
Right! If a journalist of the caliber and reputation of Robert Fisk won’t go there until there is evidence in hand, then he can conveniently wait for faits accomplis before he will receive his evidence on a silver platter from the state’s declassification engine 50 years later to write and sell more books! If all that the “empire” has to fear are “dissenting priests” like Chomsky and Fisk, the imperial planners in a “populist democracy” are in fat city. I had in fact stopped reading these guys’ erudite works of ‘literature’ once this realization had dawned upon me in 2003.
Arundhati Roy had once written about Noam Chomsky as the very lonely person for his dissent. While that may certainly have been true in the past, Chomsky and Harvey today both enjoy a great circle of very influential friends in Washington from Donald Rumsfeld to Bernard Lewis and Daniel Pipes et. al., all of whom willingly back up their faith in the Government’s version of 911 of a surprised invasion from abroad by ’19 evil jihadis’ (see Responsibility of Intellectuals – Redux and Open Letter to Amnesty International, USA on the useless facade of dissent and its ineffectual outcome in the absence of penetrating focus on the ‘right order bits’).
Therefore, how could I possibly address all of my sweet long-eared companion’s pointed questions when we none-too-surprisingly shared none of the same axioms? The leaves through the DNA to the king-makers are just way too many layers to comprehend simplistically for a “realist” who acquires her reality from the shadow play being concocted on the shadow screen as axiomatic, and even any questioning attitude deftly skirts around fundamental unexamined axioms as the extent of intellectual “free thinking” debate on the matter. It is thus impossible to try to explain such matters in an animated conversation to a self-righteous Pooka just returning from living in the Holy Lands and expect to achieve any degree of coherency or congruency.
What is the point of this dialog analysis and all this verbage?
The point is a matter of life and death for nations. That is the point of this. Let me be very precise.
Either the United States, or Israel, are poised to attack Iran, as noted by many commentators in the World press, and as was also noted by the honorable Republican Congressman from Texas, Ron Paul in his speech in January 2007 (see here15):
“As I said last week on the House floor, speculation in Washington focuses on when, not if, either Israel or the U.S. will bomb Iran– possibly with nuclear weapons. The accusation sounds very familiar: namely, that Iran possesses weapons of mass destruction. Iran has never been found in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and our own Central Intelligence Agency says Iran is more than ten years away from producing any kind of nuclear weapon. Yet we are told we must act immediately while we still can!”
Even the inexplicable Zbigniew Brzezinski, unabashedly candid as always, as in his chauvinist Grand Chessboard, plainly stated the following on February 1, 2007 before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, reading from a carefully prepared statement (here54):
“a plausible scenario for a military collision with Iran involves Iraqi failure to meet the benchmarks, followed by accusations of Iranian responsibility for the failure, then by some provocation in Iraq or a terrorist act in the US blamed on Iran, culminating in a “defensive” US military action against Iran that plunges a lonely America into a spreading and deepening quagmire eventually ranging across Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan”
This is March 2007. I have two imperatives before me: A) I do not wish to hear in 2010 that there was an “intelligence failure”, that it was another Gulf of Tonkin, or some other new contrivance from the imaginative and fertile mind of the hectoring hegemons. …

Letter to Pervez Hoodbhoy Re: The Confessions of a Groveling Pakistani Native Orientalist

Date: Fri, Dec 25, 2009 at 9:27 AM
Mon ami Pervez Hoodbhoy:
You found time to offer refutation here [ PERVEZ HOODBHOY, Is the Check in the Mail? The Confessions of a Groveling Pakistani Native Orientalist http://www.counterpunch.org/hoodbhoy12142009.html ], but never to my work challenging your positions.
And the interesting thing I had already made a determination much earlier-on, that your antagonist Mr. Shahid [ M. SHAHID ALAM, The Groveling of Pakistani Elites – Native Orientalists at the Daily Times http://www.counterpunch.org/shahid12022009.html ] (I have never met or conversed with him) is not a whole lot different in his axiomal perspectives than you – both of you are playing hegelian dialectics, employing the technique of infamy to engage in a noora-kushti.
The fact that both of you are published in the same ‘left’ rag in which you carry out your battle – a fabricated dissent rag that hectors the hectoring hegemons while also echoing their axioms – shows me that unless I too am published in something which is of worth in your eyes, you won’t offer refutation.
I think you are a native informant, your grovelling agenda is far more sophisticatedly wrapped than an ordinary paycheck, and you lie through omissions no differently than the most vulgar propagandists. As Aldous Huxley had summed it:
“Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects… totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have by the most eloquent denunciations.”
But I am tired Pervez of interlocuting errand boys – the ‘highest order bits’ of the matter make you irrelevent in the global scheme of things. The fabricated war on terror, like global pandemics, global warming, global financial collapse, are along the dialectical axis of “booming buzzing confusion” as Richard Gardener had put it in “The Hard Road to World Order” in 1974 in Foreign Affairs – a rag which publishes your brilliance but never my counter-punch – which having unraveled, I can offer no practicable solutions today. I have realized that I can only raise my own children, and guide my own thoughts-and-actions; no one elses.
I feel very sorry Pervez that a brilliant mind like yours, also turned out to be a perfect example of Macaulay’s: “We must at present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern; a class of persons, Indian in blood and colour, but English in taste, in opinions, in morals, and in intellect.”; and more accurately reflects the perfect Negro mind than anyone else’s I know in Pakistan among those with any neuronal states:
“The white establishment is skilled in flattering and cultivating emerging leaders. It presses its own image on them and finally, from imitation of manners, dress, and style of living, a deeper strain of corruption develops. This kind of Negro leader acquires the white man’s contempt for the ordinary Negro. He is often more at home with the middle-class white than he is among his own people. His language changes, his location changes, his income changes, and ultimately he changes from the representative of the Negro to the white man into the white man’s representative to the Negro. The tragedy is that too often he does not recognize what has happened to him.”
But if I mis-percieve, and I hope I do, write a refutation in the same ‘left’ rag as you did for your own ilk – but you won’t because why draw attention to one who is never published anyway? Socrates too would have been greeted by you in a similar vein, and while you champion Said and Eqbal and gain in stature by associativity, I invite you to at least try your brilliance on this plebeian and I assure you it will not diminish you in anyway:
Have a good Xmas.

CC: [respected peoples noted for their silence on modernity]
The following is my [latest] work which has [once again] challenged the world view of which you are a part. Your contribution to that world view is captured in the following paragraph in item-1:
‘Why do pious people continually make “World War IV” out to be about Islam and Muslims? They either see it as being a war on Islam and apologetically argue that Islam is benign and that “The detractors of Islam fail to see all this” as Ramzy Baroud does in ‘Muslims Must Not Pay Price for Europe’s Identity Crisis’ ; or see it as there being something inherently wrong with an antediluvian Islam which needs to be overhauled to bring it in line with modernity as Daniel Pipes and Bernard Lewis et. al. do in their doctrinal craftsmanship such as ‘Crisis of Islam – Holy War and Unholy Terror’ and in propagandist statements like it’s “Not a Clash of Civilizations, It’s a Clash between the Civilized World and Barbarians”; or see it as something wrong with the Muslims who need a reformation from their Dark Age as Pakistani native informant par excellence, Pervez Hoodbhoy does in his atheistic zealotry to reform the Muslim mind.
In all cases, they calculatingly distract attention from the blatant fact of the matter that hectoring hegemons are engaging in demonization and false-flag operations to “goosestep the Herrenvolk across international frontiers” in their age old quest for Lebensraum, euphemistically called Global Governance.’
And that contribution of yours is validated, as well as shown in its proper relative bit position in reference  cited in item-2.
Let me know where I might be wrong. I’d like to be wrong – because otherwise the conclusion is rather bleak for you despite your backing from empire and your untouchability at this time.
You know you are their shill playing noora-kushti [fake wrestling as in WWF]. I know it. Looking in the mirror you can’t escape it. Since this is unsettling for me for someone of your stature, even if not for you, I hope I have only mis-perceived. Since you and your published detractors have carved out the WWF forum to stage their own main-event, I have no venue to offer my views publicly – which suits you just fine apparently. I’d say that’s intellectual cowardice, hiding behind the skirt of empire which has entirely book-ended the discourse space including its dissent. Just like Chomsky had himself put it, and which he subsequently himself employed to his own advantage, just as you are doing:
‘This “debate” is a typical illustration of a primary principle of sophisticated propaganda. In crude and brutal societies, the Party Line is publicly proclaimed and must be obeyed — or else. What you actually believe is your own business and of far less concern. In societies where the state has lost the capacity to control by force, the Party Line is simply presupposed; then, vigorous debate is encouraged within the limits imposed by unstated doctrinal orthodoxy. The cruder of the two systems leads, naturally enough, to disbelief; the sophisticated variant gives an impression of openness and freedom, and so far more effectively serves to instill the Party Line. It becomes beyond question, beyond thought itself, like the air we breathe.’
‘Democratic societies use a different method: they don’t articulate the party line. That’s a mistake. What they do is presuppose it, then encourage vigorous debate within the framework of the party line. This serves two purposes. For one thing it gives the impression of a free and open society because, after all, we have lively debate. It also instills a propaganda line that becomes something you presuppose, like the air you breathe.’
‘The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum – even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there’s free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate.’
You are, after all, a Chomsky student, or confrere. You claim the mantle of an intellectual. Yet you shy away from debate outside the “debate” spectrum. Don’t you think you are greater than that? Be a teacher Pervez – teach me. As Socrates may perhaps have asked of his own teacher, just as he asked of the people about to administer him the Hemlock:
‘Agree with me if I seem to you to speak the truth; or, if not, withstand me might and main that I may not deceive you as well as myself in my desire, and like the bee leave my sting in you before I die. And now let us proceed.’
And I cc a few who apparently hold you in very high esteem. They share with you one thing – their silence on modernity .

Editorial – Another Hegelian Mind Fck: ‘Muslims Must Not Pay Price for Europe’s Identity Crisis’
December 26, 2009
It is not European woes nor its Identity Crisis, and nor any ‘shortcomings’ of Islam that is causing Muslims to be demonized in the Western World. It is also not very obtuse. Why are brilliant social scientists and academics like Ramzy Baroud getting confused about it: “Unearthing the reasons behind the disturbing phenomena is hardly an easy task, for it arguably requires a greater examination of the political, economic and social woes of European states than it does of the ‘shortcomings’ of Islam.”?
It has neither anything to do with “political, economic and social woes of European states” nor with Islam. Why do brave people continually rise to defend Islam as if the world’s great religion of more than 1.5 billion people needs their pathetic defense, that it can’t stand on its own without their guarded fig leaf: “Islam is a great religion in many respects; it has endured for over 1400 years. Its membership is never confined by skin color, culture, political ideology or geographic boundaries. Its views of antiquity, on equality, women rights and peace are considered progressive even by today’s standards. The detractors of Islam fail to see all this.”
The foundations of what is courageously not stated however is actually rather easily visible for anyone well versed in political and social sciences in the “doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment” designed to sustain “imperial mobilization” as a Hegelian Dialectic to raise the phoenix of the new Atlantis from the ashes of the Old Order: a One-world government. Is this so very profound to comprehend?
Why do pious people continually make “World War IV” out to be about Islam and Muslims? They either see it as being a war on Islam and apologetically argue that Islam is benign and that “The detractors of Islam fail to see all this” as Ramzy Baroud does in ‘Muslims Must Not Pay Price for Europe’s Identity Crisis’; or see it as there being something inherently wrong with an antediluvian Islam which needs to be overhauled to bring it in line with modernity as Daniel Pipes and Bernard Lewis et. al. do in their doctrinal craftsmanship such as ‘Crisis of Islam – Holy War and Unholy Terror’ and in propagandist statements like it’s “Not a Clash of Civilizations, It’s a Clash between the Civilized World and Barbarians”; or see it as something wrong with the Muslims who need a reformation from their Dark Age as Pakistani native informant par excellence, Pervez Hoodbhoy does in his atheistic zealotry to reform the Muslim mind.
In all cases, they calculatingly distract attention from the blatant fact of the matter that hectoring hegemons are engaging in demonization and false-flag operations to “goosestep the Herrenvolk across international frontiers” in their age old quest for Lebensraum, euphemistically called Global Governance.
A similar demonization was employed against the communists not too long ago, and even backed by wanton acts of terrorism upon the civilians in Western Europe – see Operation Gladio, NATO’s Stay-Behind Armies which did more than just fight the communists with their false-flag operations – to convince an ever growing skeptical European public of the communist threat.
From Kawther Salam’s coverage of “the referendum in Switzerland on banning the construction of minarets” to Ramzy Baroud’s: “targeting of Muslims and Islam has become a kind of national theater in France”, is entirely along that very political science axis.
It is crafting a broad spectrum public enemy to rally the masses against in a lifetime of “World War IV” – from cultural to militant – in order to engage in a social transformation that is to take a lifetime to accomplish. That requires a sustained “doctrinal motivation” to fuel the global transformation-inducing World War for that duration. It makes it possible for the public to pay its full price in the “economic self-denial (that is defense spending), and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers)” including exchanging their “essential liberties for some temporary safety”, all of which is otherwise “uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.”
As was noted in the minute books of the Carnegie Endowment for Peace in 1909 and discovered by the Congressional Reece Committee’s lead investigator in 1954, Norman Dodd:
‘The question is: “Is there any means known more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people?” And they conclude that no more effective means than war to that end is known to humanity.’
Only through that transparent standard 50 mm lens of Machiavellian political science does the reality imaged on a 35 mm film plane, as the observation made by Mr. Ramzy Baroud, becomes correctly captured without inducing perspective distortion: “what is most alarming about the anti-Muslim measures is that they are largely led by the government itself, rather than a fanatical group of disenchanted ideologues”.
Further elaboration was already penned in response to Kawther Salam’s coverage of Islamic minarets despoiling the beautiful scenic views of the Swiss Alps. See ‘Minarets blocking the view of the Swiss Alps’.
Unless one calls a spade a spade ab initio beginning at the first cause, starting at some intermediate effect and getting lost in the carefully crafted ‘Hegelian mind fcks’ which are calculatingly manufactured to “look like a ‘booming buzzing confusion’” as the CFR author Richard Gardner put it in 1974, is apparently trivial for even the most brilliant and/or pious of observers.
But start ab initio at the gates of political science, namely, with “Hegemony is as old as mankind” and “democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization”, even a lowly plebeian can straightforwardly get it right, that:
“In short, the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up, rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion’ to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.”
All that remains if one starts ab initio, is to boldly traverse the poisonous tree of hegelian dialectics in a depth-first search and systematically unravel the multi-spectrum, deception-laden, and blood-drenched diabolics crafted to achieve that first-principle.
Or does it actually take a wholly un-pious and non-academic conspiratorial mind to penetrate the depths of moral and intellectual depravity of the realpolitik of hectoring hegemons?
Or is it perhaps only the co-opted mind working on fabricating dissent which fails to see the obvious? Or is it merely the fools who fail to see it? Indoctrination I fear is oversold in the psycho-babble of erudite learning and makes a convenient excuse for not exercising one’s commonsense, one’s gift of thought and reflection, one’s gift of being human. All of us have it – why do only a handful use it? Intellectuals like Noam Chomsky would of course argue ‘indoctrination’. But Chomsky does not finger the puppetmasters either, and like the rest of the progressive, and/or liberal, and/or left-wing, and/or right-wing truth-tellers, hectors the empire in much lauded and passionate dissent while still echoing its message. An entire book can be written on how that is accomplished!
A people can suffer its traitors but not its fools, as a wise man once put it.
When humanity is being systematically enslaved across the world at the altar of “imperial mobilization” into a one-world government of the banksters’ making, and the most pious of truth-tellers refrain from expressing the puppetmasters and instead concentrate on their puppetshows, the biggest impediment to checking the Hectoring Hegemons becomes the fabricated dissent and the countless type-1 and type-2 fools (see Hitler’s classification in Mein Kampf) who respectively follow them. And they thus detract from forming a cohesive and focussed alliance against the singular enemy of mankind which seeds all corruption and is entirely responsible for “all the evil that follows”.

Bringing back the lost Zen to Pakistan – Don’t concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory!
November 12, 2009
I find it sadly amusing that the editor of the Pakistan People’s Party sympathizers’ website, fancifully titled ‘letusbuildpakistan’, should have reprinted Project Humanbeingsfirst’s analysis of what Hamid Mir and Geo TV’s gratuitous hectoring of their tiny presence in cyberspace might commonsensically portend for the PPP leadership and President Zardari, under the honorific “Conspiracy Theorists”.
And it is even more sadly amusing to me – if one is permitted to combine these two conflicting emotions simultaneously – that so far, none of its readers has chosen to publicly comment on it.
The ‘Brahmin’ priest couldn’t have put a more effective ‘Shudra’ label on a lowly plebeian’s work. Or perhaps the humble writing simply didn’t warrant a reaction, never mind a refutation, lest one became grossly polluted by the untouchable subject. That lack of reaction is perhaps in itself a pointer to something else.
And that is, that like the rest of us ordinary ‘untermenschen’ struggling to make some sense of the grotesque reality around us, perhaps all the many builders of Pakistan too can stand to benefit from a little Zen in their perspectives.
That, six feet under, there is no PPP, no Military, no Mullah, no Secular Humanism, no Islamofascism, no ‘left’, no ‘right’, no empire, no hectoring hegemons, no world government, no lucrative paychecks from the local NGOs or accolades at the Western think-tanks, and no ISI assets and sayanim shilling for the handful of high-ranking mercenaries within the Pakistani Military under the Technique of Infamy.
That, maggots can equally not tell the difference who lies, who spins, who murders in how great a numbers under which blaring trumpet and uniform, the best.
And that quintessential Tao of Reflection, is apparently entirely missing from the Pakistani psyche as all the partisans of their respective churches gather around the Unbirthday Party table with the Mad Hatters of this world boisterously singing the Islamofascism song in its many harmonious variations.
It is, almost as if, that sense of Zen has deliberately, or willingly, been co-opted.
Certainly, all that American tax-payers’ beautifully inflated sweat spent corrupting Pakistan has been well worth it – sure buys a lot of golf courses, Mercedes, and country homes. The hectoring hegemons’ own organs of propaganda blithely proclaim how they are the paymasters of the Pakistani military, possibly the only nuclear-armed military in the world where the obedient ‘Negroes’ listen with the most humble posture when the whiteman speaks:
And create this mayhem in return for the blood-monies deposited in Pakistani peoples’ name:
Can anyone tell the difference between Pakistan Military’s barbaric assault on its own ‘lesser’ people, eagerly fertilizing its own soil with its own kith’s blood to connivingly fabricate the patsy suicide bombers, and the American-Israeli slaughter of the ‘untermenschen’? Which is worse is unarguable, if it’s even possible to distinguish between the Red-Teams and the Blue-Teams:
The Los Angeles Times on Sunday, November 15, 2009 even attempted to provide some updated official ballpark numbers from Fox News’ previously reported estimates of October 04, 2009 (cached), on what those blood-bribes to Pakistan’s military look like. To this scribe’s skeptical eye, these were off by at least one or two decimal places as they still did not account for the billions in black-ops budget which is beyond official purview and hence reporting. Nevertheless, in the report headlined: “CIA says it gets its money’s worth from Pakistani spy agency”, the ‘TASS’ disclosed the amounts while spinning the same imperial axiom that it was to fight the ‘war on terror’:
‘The CIA has funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to Pakistan’s intelligence service since the Sept. 11 attacks, accounting for as much as one-third of the foreign spy agency’s annual budget, current and former U.S. officials say. … Almost every major terrorist plot this decade has originated in Pakistan’s tribal belt, where ISI informant networks are a primary source of intelligence. … The CIA payments are a hidden stream in a much broader financial flow; the U.S. has given Pakistan more than $15 billion over the last eight years in military and civilian aid. Congress recently approved an extra $1 billion a year to help Pakistan stabilize its tribal belt at a time when Obama is considering whether to send tens of thousands of additional troops to Afghanistan.’
The stellar ‘Negro’ newspaper of Pakistan, Daily Times, again parroted that imperial mantra in their own bold headline the next morning without examining where the finger was really pointing towards, deliberately omitting to draw attention to the diabolical glory of “imperial mobilization”: “ISI used CIA money to build new Islamabad headquarters : One-third of CIA budget goes to ISI”. The news reports are cached here and here for forensic scrutiny in future law courts.
Yes indeed, lost is the complex art of adding 2 + 2 to the Pakistani genius.
This phenomenon is not only local to the Pakistani soil, but transcends geographical boundaries to wherever the Pakistani genius persists. It spans the gamut from the glorified native informant’s erudite prose in CFR’s Foreign Affairs magazine, to the right Hon. Ambassador of Pakistan’s CFR-CEIP endorsed entire book-length treatise splitting two imperially cultivated peas in a pod. And all the Machiavellian Betweens. None of course bother to explain “full spectrum dominance”, or how it is orchestrated when “Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization”, never mind attempt to unravel the destruction of the United States itself in the globalists’ diabolical pursuit of one-world government by leaching-off and spending-out the unchallenged superpower’s largesses into unbridled international terrorism, domestic police-state, and insolvency.
Let us together bring back that basic ability to perform simple arithmetic first, before dreaming of ‘Let Us Build Pakistan’. Dupes, patsies, and ‘Negroes’ don’t build nations. They merely help in destroying them by concentrating on the finger presented to them instead of what it’s pointing to. The previous East India Company excelled in holding up many a finger and co-opting many a Raja, vazeer, and court-jester. And so does the modern hectoring hegemon. See Modernity Explained. And the ‘Negro’ Explained.
That self-evident truism applies to all of us who don’t wish to be dupes and patsies, who don’t wish to be fooled into voluntary servitude, and who don’t wish to have a boot stamped on our face in perpetuity while getting us to love it! This is irrespective of where we might live, and what our tribal-cultural-religious affiliations might be. It applies to all of mankind, for all times, for “hegemony is as old as mankind.” But how to avoid being trapped under its jackboot?
I hope you, dear reader, can take the time to watch this short 2-minute clip of Bruce Lee teaching that essential Tao, of “Don’t concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory”:
Let me just add that I think, and I also feel, that anti-conspiracy skeptics are making a good start. Skepticism is indeed the hallmark of the genuine patriot. And I hasten to clarify that I do not mean to sound patronizing when saying that.
I am merely stating the obvious science of social engineering capitalized upon by none other than Hitler himself, and which is today just as ubiquitously being practiced worldwide as in the yesteryear. And that is, to know precisely where to target psyops and propaganda: at “the crowd of simpletons and the credulous … when the voting papers of the masses are the deciding factor”.
As Hitler further observed the characteristic type most amenable to accepting bullshit as gospel from heaven, and those that aren’t:
“First, those who believe everything they read; Second, those who no longer believe anything; Third, those who critically examine what they read and form their judgments accordingly.”
It’s all examined here. And that isn’t a conspiracy theory as the reader must surely agree, for the Third Reich was empirically built upon it. Denying that today only means one is wasting one’s time speaking to only the indoctrinated idiots and fools.
So, I dare to presume that the reader of this article will accept the wisdom that ‘those who critically examine what they read and form their judgments accordingly’ are rather difficult to fool, and therefore, can’t be classified as either indoctrinated or idiotic.
That furthermore, such people pose the only genuine existential threat to the unjust tyrant and to its thousand errand boys, and therefore, the honest man and honest woman would be proud to be included in this tiny group who genuinely do “wa-twa-so-bil-haq” as Muslims and non-Muslims. I.e., they remain actively engaged with truth no matter where it takes them, even if it goes against their own parents, against prevailing wisdom, or against their ownself. No qualms about that surely, at least to the moralizing theory part of it which is almost universal. The atheists today appear to be its greatest principled exponents judging from who stands up to falsehood more: the man of cloth perennially sitting on the prayer-mat and on the lofty pulpit preaching his ‘truth’ and bowing in pious prostration before his god, or others in existential protest standing up to theirs and risking their very life.
Therefore, in genuine earnestness, I once again humbly endeavor to explain – and really only under the presumption that I am indeed addressing the third group of people who do indeed take the time to critically examine what they read and form their judgments accordingly – why my deconstruction of what is happening in Pakistan is absolutely not just a ‘conspiracy theory’, but disclosing a real monumental conspiracy of the hectoring hegemons against the Pakistani peoples.
That, this criminal conspiracy entails having alternately glorified, then demonized, and then a change of ‘errand boys’ as relief, and then repeat, mercenaries at the helm of affairs in Pakistan while baby-step faits accomplis are diabolically seeded under the continuously fabricated conditions made to “look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion’”.
The unhidden goal in this round of murderous blood-plays on the Grand Chessboard: The Balkanization of Pakistan under the pretext of saving it from the Islamofascists!
That’s it in a nutshell. How complicated is that for a rational mind to examine? When they don’t, it implies only one thing. Only ONE!
Anyone who contributes to either the mantras of Islamofascism, Taliban, Al-Qaeeda, or the waging of endless wars against that fabricated enemy instead of the real one, in my view has already been unequivocally adjudicated upon at Nuremberg.
While the morality of the victor is always relative, as Justice Vinson of the US Supreme Court observed for his own nation in 1951:
“Nothing is more certain in modern society than the principle that there are no absolutes, that a name, a phrases, a standard has meaning only when associated with the considerations which give birth to nomenclature. To those who would paralyze our Government in the face of impending threat by encasing it in a semantic strait-jacket, we must reply that all concepts are relative”,
and always becomes absolute while administering the victor’s justice as sermonized by the US Chief Prosecutor in 1946 at Nuremberg before sending the Nazi leadership to the elaborately prepared gallows:
“If certain acts of violation of treaties are crimes, they are crimes whether the United States does them or whether Germany does them, and we are not prepared to lay down a rule of criminal conduct against others which we would not be willing to have invoked against us”,
for the vast majority of ordinary people un-attuned to the pragmatic witticism of Pakistan’s distinguished Ambassador to Washington:
‘“Foreign relations are not discussed in poetry, … Saddam Husain’s last speech was also full of poetry but it could not save him or his nation”’, and that ‘relationships between nations are based on ground realities’,
it does not change with the prevailing winds.
A courageous people must indeed face up to the “ground realities” just as the Hon. Ambassador of Pakistan boldly stated to his own audience, but unlike some pusillanimous and hectoring cowards, also apply the same standards across the board rather than rush to coddle the greatest criminals exuding the most power as “ground realities”.
The following is an excerpt from last year, September 10, 2008 to be precise, from a letter I wrote my own TAO teacher in Lahore, titled: “Happy-Happy Zardari: A monologue on Hope and Voluntary Servitude”. The fact that it was written more than a year ago, and what it pertinently references is from almost two years ago, is both its vindication and its relevance to still saving the present for a better future.
Pakistan remains exemplary in this – see Project Humanbeingsfirst’s February 2008 prescient report “Who Killed Benazir Bhutto? In her own words!” , and its November 2007 solutions recommendations “Open Letter to a Pakistani General” . The election of Mr. Asif Ali Zardari as the new President of Pakistan confirms the setup by the Hectoring Hegemons for devilishly re-architecting Pakistan’s borders – as predicted in the series of reports on Pakistan’s Destabilization by Project Humanbeingsfirst – through increasing economic oppression     and tyranny  upon the common man  already unable to make ends meet .
And then, the ‘ubermensch’ will come on their white horse wielding “shock and awe” to “save” the “the very petri dish of international terrorism”  from becoming the new “Terror Central”  and threatening the civilized world due to its instability and civil war! That ominous “saving”  is already in its advanced setup stages  even as I write this. Many front-faces have been lined up who will retain and maintain the core-lie to continually enable the ‘ubermensch’ quest for “full spectrum dominance” – that of ‘war on terror’ – and the present incarnation with Mr. Zardari is just another “happy-happy” ever-smiling face!  But a more insidious face than the Generals’ before, in order to present the more acceptable illusion of freedom and democracy as that is what is being demanded by the constituency to be controlled. Well, let’s give it to them under the praetorian tutelage of a re-incarnated seasoned Godfather who can be relied upon to obediently do the master’s bidding on account of natural inclination  to usurp  and plunder , with plenty of skeletons in the closet to keep a strong check on the desired strategic direction when necessary! 
Observing the events of the day (September 10, 2008)  being rehearsed with all the pomp and majestic show – complete with horse-drawn buggy and kisses on the cheeks and all – before the applauding world with Mr. Zardari taking the highest oath of office in Pakistan, reminded me of the opening wedding scene from Mario Puzo’s movie the Godfather, attended by the motley of morality-challenged, all dressed in their finest Sunday outfits. The only thing that appeared to be missing during the festivities in the non-movie version was the camera zooming into private meetings in beautifully shuttered oak and mahogany paneled darkened rooms behind closed doors on how the “territory” was to be divided up, who would get what loot, and who would be assigned to make which offer that couldn’t be refused! Even the fictional Michael Coreleone could not go so “legit” as the real life enactment! Once made “legit” and cleansed into a “virgin”, is it slanderous to recall the past? None of the afore-stated staid recollections from newspaper reports even begin to scratch the real surface of the actual experiences of many Pakistanis under Asif Ali Zardari during the two short hereditary reigns of his beloved wife. His popular nom de guerre of “Mr. ten percent” among the general public hardly did him justice. And neither could Al Capone ever be charged for anything other than tax evasion! Even that opportunity no longer exists – so long as the godfather dutifully continues America’s “war on terror”!
The earnest columnist Ardeshir Cowasjee of the Daily Dawn had repeatedly noted in his many weekly columns that the former President, General Musharraf, was the best among the worst of the lot, and while I never agreed with the famous octogenarian of Pakistan on the notion of choosing the lesser of two evils from a carefully constrained artificial choice forcibly inflicted upon the suffering populace, I do agree with that sentiment. But not because of anything Ardeshir Cowasjee ever observed.
But because, with President Zardari at the helm, and aided in his mission by the mindlessly silly and horrendously greedy Parliamentarians who turn on a penny, Goethe’s notion of servitude – “none are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free” – is being attempted in Pakistan under a godfather-civilian ruler as an alternative to the brute servitude under a military-general that was beginning to wear thin with the people! The latter however, in comparison, was surely a superior option to serve under, as there was at least no illusion of freedom! The cycle of false-leaders is quite revealing even as it continually fosters only the imperial agendas.
Let’s snapshot from the setup that began this “imperial mobilization”: The democratically elected Nawaz Sharif being replaced by Musharraf in 1999 to acquire a “unity of command” over the client-state, and the pubic showing enormous relief at being rescued from their misery by a military dictator who seemed to wanna fix everything for them – for the people wanted someone strong to lead them after all the previous debacles under “democracy”; 9 years later Musharraf now being replaced by Zardari and the people once again showing even more relief because they wanted to be led by democracy once again after all the debacles under military dictatorship that has brought the country to the brink of bankruptcy and dismemberment! The new “democratic” leader now appears to be equally keen on fixing everything for the people, but marches quickly in lock-step to the same beat as his autocratic predecessors!
While the people are kept busy in these ‘katputli tamashas’ [puppet shows] expertly crafted for them by the Rand Corporation and the Pentagon in America, no element of “imperial mobilization” is ever left to chance. It is just as precision an operation in Pakistan as 911 was in New York! If a military strongman is needed to enable the ‘war on terror’ by nurturing “jihadis” with the attack on Afghanistan, the climate is created to install him. If destabilization is needed to enable dismemberment of a former frontline client-state which has outlived its usefulness on the ‘Grand Chessboard’ in its present configuration, faux democracy is crafted to bring the destabilization to its critical mass. The concept of years of planning and long consistent execution times, as is political science based state-craft, is entirely alien to the impetuous Pakistani mind. Brought up over the past sixty years to only expect uncertainty, loot and plunder, disappearances and oppression, a Pakistani has become mentally attuned to going to sleep at night not knowing who will be in-charge the next morning (or where one might wake up)!
Thus, the notion that a devilish multi-year precision planning, and such state-craft sophistication as the ‘dialectics of deception’ described by Project Humanbeingsfirst in many of its reports, is even possible, is entirely foreign to the relatively simple, feudalistic Pakistani genius. Therefore, ‘katputli tamashas’ and frequent change of Acts and actors is great for the masses – for many couldn’t care less who is in power, tied as most have become to their daily bread and hope for miraculous deliverance!
The exuberance shown by the world’s leaders in rushing to congratulate the new Mr. 100% Pakistani President into their fold – one who had candidly noted: ‘The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), if it comes into power, must persuade the people that the fight against militants is “our war”, not just America’s war’  – and all of them together agreeing to maintain that enabling core-lie of “imperial mobilization” intact, amply demonstrates this.
This coddling of a person who was further reported brazenly proclaiming “Asif Ali Zardari told a British TV that political agreements were not words of Qura’an which could not be changed with the changing political scenario. According to the TV, he was asked about his shifting positions and not fulfilling his promises to which he said there was nothing final in politics and positions could change with the changing situations.” , makes President Zardari actually the best qualified among the lot for the job of presiding over the dismembering of Pakistan! One who need not, by one’s own admission, honor any agreements one may sign, or the deals one may make, with one’s own countrymen in order to gain their trust! Wow! What an egregiously blatant mocking of a peoples quite accustomed to “Voluntary Servitude”. Notice that there are no riots in the streets in Pakistan, no protests, and while the nation’s ruling elite is politically and visibly united in celebrating the victory of democracy over dictatorship, the poor man is kept busy trying to barely survive!
Finally, one can rightfully claim, that there is little difference between the peoples of America, and the peoples of Pakistan – united they do stand in “hope” and inaction for a better tomorrow, as the rich plunderers laugh their way to the bank!
Indeed, I hate to suggest once again that all this was plainly manifest when Musharraf had issued his own proclamations paving the way for PPP and Bhutto to come to power with the NRO and the sacking of the judges by crafting his unilateral Executive Orders, which like in America, once made into law, become effectively irreversible. I had plainly written on December 21, 2007 in Project Humanbeingsfirst’s warning to the Pakistani peoples “Wakeup to the grotesque reality of the ‘Grand Chessboard’!”  (while most of the Pakistani and Western press appeared not to have ever been students of political science, history, or even forensic science – the only reason most among them are likely called journalists, the press, the newsmedia, is surely only because they carry suitably designed business cards or are rich enough to own the media – there are a few exceptions of course, as shown by this oped in the Nation of February 22, 2008 ; and I have no idea why the rest of the respected columnists like Ardeshir Cowasjee remained silent, despite my urgent and repeated pleas to them to at least comment on the warning in their own soap-boxes in order to draw attention to it, as no English newspaper in Pakistan was willing to publish it or any of the letters to editor  that I sent them before I gave up on further wasting my time; I had also, in my earnestness, foolishly apprised two newly retired 3-star Pakistani Generals in Islamabad of these matters over a long private lunch conversation, with obviously little impact and much wasted effort):
#2. The present ‘elections’ in Pakistan are a manifest fraud under the orchestration of the ‘hectoring hegemons’ themselves, and must be abandoned in the greater national interest of the peoples of Pakistan themselves.
This mantra of elections is replete with red herrings craftily synthesized to maintain Pakistan as a servile client-state in order to carry on with the same bold ‘imperial designs’ on the ‘Grand Chessboard’. It is merely the rebottling of the same old wine in a different bottle. It will surely be legitimately conducted, with no apparent riggings, and duly approved by all the impartial international observers to give the artful elections an official international legitimacy.
It is quite immaterial who wins in these elections. The laws and the judiciary of the nation have already been reconstituted under the umbrella of ’emergency’ to enable the nation to carry on unfettered in its primary objective of fighting the ‘War on Terror’ as an obedient patsy client-state – and hence to carry on in its own devilishly crafted suicide!
These elections will conveniently ‘elect’ a legislature whose leaders have also been deftly primed by the ‘hectoring hegemons’ themselves! And the highest executive office in the land is already retained in the hands of the same old ‘wine’ drinker.
Thus all the ‘ducks’ are still lined up perfectly in a row, just as they were on the very eve of 911.
#3. The people of Pakistan must fully reconcile with the Military of Pakistan immediately – the reconciliation being of the type that was witnessed by the surprised world between the oppressors and the oppressed in South Africa.
Not the type that is being pushed through the NRO to legitimize looters, plunderers, and rapists of the nation in order to staff the legislature with the made by ‘CFR in the USA’ and made by ‘RIIA in the UK’ Pakistani politicians with at best criminal credentials, and at worst, treasonous ones!
The military of Pakistan, as an institution, is indeed also the only hope of Pakistan as we must survive on the ‘Grand Chessboard’ and only they hold the cards. What is about to befall the nation can also only be averted by them. The civilians and the Military must unite – immediately – for overarching national considerations that far transcend individual grievances, ego trips, and past transgressions.
Thus the civilians must abandon all meaningless and mindless protests which are in any case devoid of any fundamental comprehension of the reality du jour on the ‘Grand Chessboard’ – none of them seek fundamental changes to our fate, nor do they appear to fathom what such changes are even supposed to be – and are merely only chasing red herrings that have been deftly crafted as perhaps per the Machiavellian ‘technique of infamy’. …
These protests are needlessly continually giving the Western public the impression of ‘instability’ which only adds to the credibility of the various pretextual mantras to come ‘deliver’ us from ourselves! There is much more at stake than to usher in a thin veneer of faux ‘democracy’ which is all that these protests are unwittingly accomplishing as can be empirically witnessed by anyone with half a brain.
#4 Instead of the faux ‘democracy’, the Pakistani Military rulers on their part must now rise to the challenge of genuine patriotism and as genuine guardians of the nation and help carve a genuine Democracy, with the capital D and without the quotes, as briefly outlined in “Re-Imagining Pakistan’s Defenses – Open Letter to a Pakistani General”, and as explored in “Saving Pakistan from Synthetic ‘Terror Central’”.
Briefly, that entails crafting a genuine Constitution under a bilateral ‘social contract’ between the people and the state, that is subsequently ratified by the people of Pakistan through a direct referendum vote. This can be accomplished within a few short months if there is the national and military will that understands the urgency of the matter and executes on it by gathering the right peoples to craft it! [ Read items 5, 6, and 7 here ]
Item 2 above, in bold, appears amazingly prescient – right? The new “wine drinker” makes little impact on the journey however. And we observe that Musharraf withdrew  without rectifying any of his own power-shenanigans in favor of the new “wine drinker” whom he had himself enabled and pardoned with the NRO that has lent new meaning to the adage ‘steal only in millions and billions, for generous pardon in the name of national security, national interest, or national reconciliation is the only outcome for monumental crimes when all loot’.
The new “wine drinker” in turn was, and is, being guided by the same hectoring hegemons     who crafted and led the American foreign policy in the decimation of Afghanistan and Iraq, as expected – and so brazenly at times that there is no need to even hide that fact from the public – when Musharraf very well could have implemented all of the afore-stated recommendations for the genuine protection of Pakistan, as he enjoyed absolute power and the public would have welcomed his moves against the hectoring hegemons with open arms! Therefore, the lame surprise as demonstrated in this news report, aptly titled “Benazir’s promise remains unfulfilled” , is at best – well what can one say that hasn’t already been said about the press! Pakistani media is now but a distant reflection of the American media eagerly galloping down the same path. See Chapters 4, 6, and 7 of my book “Prisoners of the Cave” for a better understanding of what one is likely to see more and more of in Pakistan! 
If all this prescience is such advanced rocket science, how is it that an ordinary plebeian, with only a computer and an internet connection, can figure it all out, including the solution space, and none of the profound intelligentsia and the press in Pakistan can?
The answer must be that we are a well deserving nation ready to be replaced by a better peoples – as per the promise of the Qur’an!
But wait – I am not ready to be replaced, nor am I willing to accept that verdict, and neither are the 200 million Pakistanis suffering under the yoke of the handful of co-opted praetorian ruling elite of Pakistan! “Voluntary Servitude” may indeed be our failing due to excessive misplaced hope, but is that as criminally culpable as the tyrants who criminally rule over us by exploiting that failing?
Being a victim is not a crime, even if being a foolish one repeatedly is reprehensible!
This ain’t no game dear brothers and sisters, friends and respected elders. It is continually being paid for in innocent blood of that lowly ‘other’. Tomorrow, it will be our own, it it isn’t already.
This also ain’t no matter of penning narratives in blogs, of making platitudinous speeches in town halls, of freedom of speech, of abstract rights which mean little in practice – but doing something useful about our own singular existential imperative rather than merely talk about it.
And one can’t do anything unless one diagnoses and triages the now almost comatose patient correctly. But it is still breathing. Not dead yet!
I genuinely pray that intelligence men, or men of greater intelligence, military men, political men, and of course women, those of uncommon valor, are reading this. Also, that at least some among them so inebriated with the banality of evil and prostration to power, will find the inevitable chutzpah to take me to court (but not disappear me into some horrible rendition). Just like Pakistan’s distinguished Ambassador used his best friend, the legal system, and filed a plentiful law suit for defamation against The Nation newspaper of Pakistan (notice cached here). I however won’t settle for any kangaroo court. But will be more than delighted to see anyone in the International Criminal Court of Justice.
Please watch my personal lawyer, Justice Robert H. Jackson of the US Supreme court, and the Chief Prosecuting Counsel for the United States, already having laid out my iron-clad case at Nuremberg more conclusively than any lawyer can:
But of course, that requires a Military Tribunal administering the victor’s justice to bring those very conclusions about.
Short of such a victor’s justice selectively administered, yes indeed the hectoring hegemons and their ‘errand boys‘ will win in the Fourth Reich just as they did in the Third Reich in yesteryear. Anyone efficaciously challenging them, anywhere in the world, is marched to the gallows as the terrorist, disappeared, or outright shot through the head. Others are simply ignored, or afforded their Hyde Park corners to asphyxiate themselves in freespace. All that freedom of speech in vacuum is very valuable of course to generously accord to the plebeian – we now sit around typing all day or make speeches to the cheering choir rather than tearing down the totem poles constructed to rule over us. And even more egregiously, actually fighting for the right to continue doing that pleasurably sterile thing over and over again! Some of the more famous among us are in fact also getting quite rich doing it. Some others are simply enamored by their own brilliant dissent-productions and feel badly when it isn’t appreciated.
Be that as it may, I humbly invite everyone, but especially the Pakistanis reading this, to refute me if I make a mistake, or to boldly join me if I appear to speak the truth in correctly concluding the answer to 2+2 =?
Let’s together unmask them all by uniting on the common nemesis. Even the natural instinct for self-preservation in the lowly herd helps them correctly identify the hidden hectoring hegemon of their jungle, and they boldly unite against it under their existential imperative:
Why can’t we?
As one of my favorite Urdu poets famously said: ‘Mauj hai darya mein, bairoon-e-darya kuch nahin’.  That piece of poetic witticism if practiced by those now deceived, just as it is practiced by the herd in the video above, will checkmate the very “ground realities” that our man in Washington is so worried about.
Let’s help him shall we? But in order to effectuate even that single verse of poetry, minimally requires knowing how to add 2 + 2 = 4 before the Rubicon is crossed, before the barbarians march in through the gates of hell bringing their “shock and awe” with them, and before one’s own treasonous traitors and mercenaries do the people in. Indeed a great failing of the Iraqi people. But it was not of poetry.

Letter to the Ambassador of Pakistan Hon. Husain Haqqani: Bringing Zen back to Pakistan – Don’t concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory!
November 12, 2009
To: Ambassador Husain Haqqani <email@example.com>
From: Project Humanbeingsfirst.org
Subject: Bringing Zen back to Pakistan
Date: Nov 12, 2009 at 11:27 PM
Dear Ambassador of Pakistan, Hon. Husain Haqqani Sahib.
FYI. Please note references to your reported official statements below. If they are taken out of context (Dawn, June 29, 2008 Haqqani heckled at meeting), please feel free to offer a correction statement and it will be appended to the article if short. If you have a longer response, that too will be appended, or linked as appropriate.
Thank you for your time and patience with us ordinary people who do believe that the failure in Iraq of the Iraqi peoples to defend themselves against the hectoring hegemons was not due to Saddam Husain’s poetry, but due to a loss of Zen. To protect our nation from the same fate, we need to bring Zen back. I hope you will join me in doing so.

Project Humanbeingsfirst unravels Hamid Mir’s and Geo TV’s bullying of a little blog – The Real Agenda
November 10, 2009
To: Let us build Pakistan <firstname.lastname@example.org>
In Ref To: http://letusbuildpakistan.blogspot.com/2009/11/capital-talk-and-let-us-build-pakistan.html
Let me first state up front that I have no affiliation with any political party of Pakistan, its military, its intelligence apparatus, or any intelligence apparatus in the world for that matter, its newsmedia, or their collectively providing the essential proxy services to the hectoring hegemons for the orchestrated dismemberment of Pakistan. As far as I am concerned, as a Pakistani citizen, they all leave much to be desired. And I hope that many genuinely concerned and honest Pakistanis who are directly affiliated with any of these institutions also feel the same way. All that which these institutions and their leaders as well as their foot-soldiers can improve upon, begins by loudly proclaiming the correct solution for 2 + 2. All else will follow1. That is spelled out in the new book from Project Humanbeingsfirst.org : The Pakistan Decapitation Papers [ http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/10/foreword-pakistan-decapitation-papers.html ].
The sudden one-sided attack on letusbuildpakistan blog by Mr. Hamid Mir of GEO TV in their Capital Talk show of November 05, 2009 is intriguing. I have seldom read that little known website, and I have even less interest in their political perspective which appears to echo the same sacred-cow axioms of their erstwhile leader Benazir Bhutto. Indeed, the blog shares the primal axiom of ‘militant Islam’ being the first-enemy undermining Pakistan with the entire political-military ruling establishment of Pakistan and the United States. This is immediately apparent from their dialectical ode to Pakistan military on their website: “A tribute to Pakistani soliders fighting the terrorists of Taliban, Al-Qaeda and Sipah-e-Sahaba”. Perhaps the website authors, too incestuously engrossed in their own perspectives, haven’t yet had the time to read Alice’s reflections when she isn’t sliding down the rabbit hole in The Decapitation of Pakistan by its own Military!: [ http://humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/10/decapitation-of-pakistan.html ]
So, the public squabble among thieves is interesting, and perhaps carries some useful signal of what’s to come down the pipe.
First, let’s ponder upon the blatant facts of the matter before diving into deconstructing the politics behind the ‘katputli tamasha’ (puppetshow) on the Grand Chessboard. Despite the candid declaration by the tiny blog of its political affiliation with the Pakistan Peoples Party on its own contact page: “Abdul Nishapuri, the founding co-editor of the ‘Let us build Pakistan’ blog, and a member of the ‘Critical Supporters of Pakistan People’s Party’.”, and which largely appears to be a shoestring budget operation of ordinary individuals unable to even afford a paid hosted website, Mr. Hamid Mir could only think of picking on a tiny blog which openly advertises its affiliation to the ruling political party, to uncover all the ills which plague Pakistan?
Has GEO TV run out of more heinous criminals in Pakistan to target among those who incessantly wage war upon their own people by way of deception and are openly destroying the country on behalf of their foreign paymasters?
What’s the real agenda behind the ‘katputli tamasha’ of attacking a tiny unknown website by none other than the mighty Mr. Hamid Mir – the “champion of democracy” and free speech – who himself shamelessly shills for the hectoring hegemons?
In order to understand that, one has to acutely comprehend the politics of Hamid Mir.
Below I reproduce a letter I wrote the distinguished ‘democrat’ journalist after witnessing his own brazen performance given at the Commonwealth Club of California in April earlier this year. That performance video is linked to in the following tutorial which unravels Hegelian Dialectics, how fourth-generation warfare is waged upon the public by way of deception to weaken the victim from within: [ http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/05/anatomy-of-modern-lies-pakistanishills.html ].
Mr. Hamid Mir’s endearing performance before the largely pro-establishment American audience (and that description transcends the traditional left-right dialectics of American politics), finally convinced me that this highly regarded journalist from Pakistan made famous by his interviews of Osama Bin Laden, subsequently by being the people’s street champion of free-speech and democracy under military dictatorship, and now being heralded as the hero of Pakistan’s democracy in the United States by its own instruments of propaganda, is an outright intelligence asset.
Because, alternately, Mr. Hamid Mir being a mere dolt and a simpleton appears to be a rather bizarre proposition. For how can a journalist of his stature and experiences be so un-informed? Intelligence agents and assets permeate the newsmedia worldwide and are merely tunes to be played by the Mighty Wurlitzer. The fine art of the Mighty Wurlitzer is explained in the tutorial: [ http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/05/note-on-mighty-wurlitzer.html ].
Therefore, anything which Mr. Hamid Mir sings is suspect, at least for the forensic mind already attuned to the hectoring hegemons’ genocidal plays for “full spectrum dominance” on the Grand Chessboard. Consequently, Hamid Mir’s tunes and diatribes must minimally be scrutinized from that perspective before taking them on face value. Such Machiavellian orchestration after all, is only according to the Pentagon’s own recipe for fourth-generation warfare as examined in this recent editorial: [ http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/10/editorial-enemy-within-4th-gen-warfare.html ].
Since hearing that remarkable performance in California – whose delivery was undoubtedly most natural and very well done – I don’t waste time on the melodies hummed by Hamid Mir except to extract any un-apparent signals, as the maestro directly rehearses the Mighty Wurlitzer’s compositions. Which is of course most unfortunate for me because Mr. Hamid Mir used to be among my few favorite Pakistani journalists to watch in diaspora on the rare occasion that I did tune into youtube (don’t watch or own a television), as the one who showed any chutzpah and boldness in questioning the ruling establishment. I thought he had wonderfully taken a page from I. F. Stone. Under forensic scrutiny however, it only turned out to be a dialectical noora-kushti among mercenaries with mindless commentaries rehearsed from the galleries, and all of it to keep the public glued to the edge of their seat distracted from the real show in town. While such diabolical narratives, both for manufacturing consent and manufacturing dissent, are highly prized by the hectoring hegemons, and of course duly rewarded by them, they are a treacherous deception played upon the wretched of the earth in the audience who always bear the full brunt of its import.
I have always known Machiavelli it seems, but certainly since I became a student of Noam Chomsky at MIT and learnt more political theory than I wanted to. But my mind was initially un-attuned to accept the role of famous people like Hamid Mir in manufacturing consent. They seemed to play the courageous dissenter’s role so expertly – until I figured out the political theory of Manufacturing Dissent: [ http://humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2008/06/wmd-master-social-science.html ].
Mr. Hamid Mir in that highly regarded conversation at the Commonwealth Club retained all the core-axioms of the hectoring hegemons while echoing all their mantras – a matter that is fully fleshed out in the aforementioned book. In that conversation, Hamid Mir didn’t even bother to play dissent, as he sometimes does in his musings in Urdu. He actually changed his role to manufacturing consent before the American audience. A very versatile asset. He may yet win his Nobel Peace Prize – President Obama unfortunately stole a march on the poor guy this year as already deconstructed: [ http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/10/foreword-obama-manufacturing-savior.html ].
Mr. Hamid Mir too will surely earn his own knighthood as the man of peace someday, the savior illustrious of Pakistan who helped save the world from the Pak-Nukes which were about to fall into the inglorious hands of the barbaric hordesmen of Osama Bin Laden: “[It’s] Not a Clash of Civilizations, It’s a Clash between the Civilized World and Barbarians”. Watch that myth-making under refined construction in the bizarre glorification of Hamid Mir at the Commonwealth Club of California by the ‘whiteman’ duly flattering the ‘negro’.
Knowing all of that context, let’s return to the question of Mr. Hamid Mir attacking the lame-duck Presidency of Mr. Zardari through the tiny blog ‘Let us build Pakistan’.
GEO is really not that stupid to not know the difference between an entity trying to Machiavellianly create diabolical intrigues – which if GEO News really wanted to unravel, they could have within 5 minutes uncovered at least 20 websites, or a hundred prominent Pakistanis, who are clearly intelligence-ops and/or mouth-pieces working to directly undermine Pakistan by simply judging them for their crucial omissions and/or direct support of empire’s own sacred-cow axioms – and the largely unknown ordinary individuals running the shoestring budget operation of ‘Let us build Pakistan’ who are even being quite candid about their political affiliation.
This is clearly indicative, at least to my mind, of some marching orders having been received by GEO TV. Hamid Mir is only executing them. It appears that a take down of the Zardari government is imminent, to be replaced by a different ‘errand boy’.
They all work for the same puppetmasters. It’s merely playing musical chairs to the same tune that is slowly removing one chair at a time every time the music stops. Everyone in this game parrots empire by keeping the core-axioms intact while offering variations of “Betweens”: [ http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/10/fightingterrorists-butsupportingideolog.html ].
Therefore, it follows that they are all playing together by the same set of rules constructed by empire. Hence, they are all traitors to the state of Pakistan. If Pakistanis wish to become slaves by choice to the hectoring hegemons with a boot stamped on their face in perpetuity, hold a referendum and ask them. Don’t stab the people in the back.
Whether or not the gallows will ever welcome Pakistan’s long list of traitors, stripping them naked of their thin robe to at least convict them in the court of public opinion, must suffice for an honest plebeian un-afraid to proclaim 2 + 2 = 4. Some of course call that basic skill of knowing how to add correctly, ‘conspiracy theory’. Only a victor’s justice will convince them of otherwise. Here is my letter to Hamid Mir.
Letter to Hamid Mir, Geo TV, May 15, 2009: Stupid or Shill?
From: Project Humanbeingsfirst.org
Subject: Are you aware that war on terror is fake? That talibans are cultivated weeds?
Date: Fri, May 15, 2009 at 12:56 AM
Dear Mr. Hamid Mir,
I watched your performance at the Commonwealth Club of April 1 2009.
It is so endearing that I have featured it on my website (
http://humanbeingsfirst.org upper left column).
The following is a brief excerpt from this month’s terrorism
newsletter. I thought I’d share it with you because that description
of the ‘Negro’ is unfortunately you. I am very sorry. Your
persistently clothing the straw-boogieman of “imperial mobilization” –
Osama Bin Laden – only shows you to be either a simpleton reporting on
the ‘katputli tamashas’, or a western intelligence asset playing the
tune dictated by the Mighty Wurlitzer. You willingly do not wish to
see puppetmasters – for nobody can be that stupid.
I am writing you in the hope that I am mistaken on all counts and
there is a simpler explanation to all your omissions.
Thank you for your time,
The most despicable part in all this however is that the ‘educated’ Muslim elite are far worse, to the extent of being criminal! They are the “Prized Negroes of Pakistan”. A variant of the ‘Negro’ has been supplied by every Muslim nation to be sure, but Pakistan’s stand head and shoulders above all. This ‘enlightened-moderation’ generation which General Pervez Musharaf bequeathed to his beloved Pakistan for which he himself wrote the Requiem Mass, is even more aiding and abetting in this fabricated genocidal ‘war on terror’. They deliberately fail to recognize that it is a manufactured war of “imperial mobilization” calculatingly being waged through the deception of the manufactured boogieman of ‘Islamism’ that variously shows up as ‘Al Qaeeda’, ‘Osama Bin Laden’, and ‘Taliban’. From the Pakistani military killing its own innocent civilians, to the supposedly Muslim-media, Muslim-NGOs, Muslim-civil society, Muslim-analysts, Muslim-begummaats (‘high-class’ English-enabled ladies as the ones you see protesting the Taliban in the Al Jazeera video), and all and sundry ‘secular humanists’ et. al., all echoing the same mantras of ‘radical Islamists’ and ‘war on terror’ without understanding who is cultivating the ‘weeds’. All ever ready to dance the ‘Negro’ at the white man’s whistle!
Reading the above missive, a young Pakistani columnist replied when I suggested to her to explore that passage in her own witty column in Pakistan’s largest English language daily: “Zahir Sahab, Having been a victim of the radical Islamist harassment, I am one of the most vocal opponents of all things that combine religion and politics. I personally find your theory a little thin and as I am not convinced, I most definitely will not discuss it. I am one of those English enabled women who were out on the streets protesting against Talibans and I will continue to do so. Regards,”. I had failed to impress upon my young friend that “[combining] of religion and politics” began at the Rand Corporation, the American Enterprise Institute, and the CFR before she was born. Unwilling to look beyond the ‘katputli tamasha’ (puppetshow) which Pakistanis experience daily, it has become their tortuous reality – much like the absurd Queen and the Mad Hatter became Alice’s reality in her Wonderland. At least, it was only a dream for Alice – she could wakeup from it and go on home.
For the Pakistanis, it has become a blood-drenched nightmare from which there is no awakening, no other home to go to. The literati of Pakistani elite not seeing the hand of political Machiavelli who has spun this absurdity on Pakistan for its own imperial mobilization agenda, and who is so devilishly cultivating and harvesting our pathetic cracks and lacunae, is unforgivable. And precisely these educated people, at least some among them well-intentioned idealism-driven patsies with foreign degrees, others outright mercenaries, all too predictably get space in Pakistan’s mainstream press and newsmedia whose owners, needless to say, are merely a tune to be played by the ‘Mighty Wurlitzer’ for manufacturing consent.
