Orwellian America today
Much of America is feeling some of its coldest temperatures in history now with the early winter of November 2019. These conditions will certainly be painful for the homeless street people who are a growing population demographic in recent years. Devastating cold is the new norm for winters at this stage in the great cycle of the climate. And those homeless will be dying in the streets. America we wish your people a happy hunting ground.
If we say at a generous estimate that America has 400 million population, then at least 10% are now in poverty. According to a recent [United Nations special report] on the extreme poverty and human rights in the USA
“about 40 million live in poverty, 18.5 million in extreme poverty (almost 5%), and 5.3 million live in Third World conditions of absolute poverty”.
Apparently in every major city of USA today as I write this, the number of homeless people is on the rise. And yet the stock market and Wall St are at an all time high. There is a disconnect between Wall St and Main St and that crack in the economy is widening, to a point where masses are taking to the streets globally, and unions are striking even in America, for the first time in decades, in this number.
None are more done in by the American government than its war veterans. The problem is that in the minds of America’s leaders, a robust war economy is the only thing keeping the USA from collapsing overnight. The military-industrial complex survives on war, and people like Pres. Bush, and others have made a fortune off the wars, all the while neglecting the veterans that come back traumatized, unemployable and ruined by learning the truth of how their leaders are the actual villains.
The military-industrial complex is actually the world’s largest employer of people. And yet around 6000 veterans commit suicide a year over the past 10 years (according to figures up until 2017). But the government cares little for them. In fact the government labels them as dangerous.
“Operation Vigilant Eagle” is a government program by the Department of Homeland Security, to track veterans because they are a potential threat. In fact the veterans are becoming labelled as potential domestic terrorists. Which sounds like the time when Stalin sent his returning veterans off to the gulags in Siberia because they became too westernized while fighting the enemy on the western front.
War veterans are returning and becoming informed about the real motives of the wars they were sent to fight in, and they become disgruntled and disillusioned, or they may just become depressed about the state of the world, their country and life under the current regime. Or they may be psychologically stressed by the war they experienced. These veterans are all being targeted, especially if they become extreme in their opinions – extreme left or right of center opinions are considered suspect. Activism and journalism, like this very article I’m writing now, would be considered terrorism or mental instability if they show symptoms...
“that are mainly anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely,”
direct symptoms of a new psychiatric disorder called “Operational Defiance Disorder”. I kid you not. This is Orwell at his best, except it’s real life today in 2019, on the eve of the Great Disaster, which shall be known by many names, but Great will prefix them all; the “war to end all wars”, the Depression to end all depressions”, the “mother of all bombs”, the “solar minimum of all minima”, the “perfect storm”, “black swan” and “white Christmas” - one of the last ever celebrated before the “great Jihad” takes that ritual off the calendar.
Nevertheless, a diagnosis of ODD, the new label of the day, can be described thus:
“the person exhibits ‘symptoms’ such as the questioning of authority, the refusal to follow directions, stubbornness, the unwillingness to go along with the crowd, and the practice of disobeying or ignoring orders. Persons may also receive such a label if they are considered free thinkers, nonconformists, or individuals who are suspicious of large, centralized government…”
That’s me in a nutshell, pun intended. It’s also many disgruntled veterans, as well as many more informed people with common sense today. Orwell could have written this stuff for his book 1984, and he was close, just a few years too early with his timing, but Big Brother has arrived. This syndrome of ODD was originally used by psychiatrists to describe adolescents who showed uncontrollable defiance toward their teachers and parents. But now it applies to war veterans and activists. Those who question what looks like the crimes of the state, against the law and against humanity. If you point out the crimes of the state, you will be labelled psychologically damaged and probably locked up in a mental home, with no parole options.
So we have been socially engineered into a Catch 22 situation here by the chess masters that make the decisions with us pawns. The country will collapse without a war to fund their arms industry and it will kill off many as cannon fodder, or drive them nuts. And as the collateral damage builds up, the whistleblowers, activists and journalists will be targeted as if they are criminally insane. Who is really the criminally insane here? In a society where the norm is to cushion the 1% with the blood of the 99%, then being abnormal may be the only decent decision.
What more can I say? I may have already said too much, but this record will go down on the blockchain as the mad ravings of a maverick outsider, a rebel with a cause – namely the sanity of the human race, the consciousness of humanity, the liberation of the oppressed slave species of man.
“Jiva jago jiva jago”, wake up sleeping souls, an old Bengali poet sings. “how long will you sleep in the lap of the witch called Maya?” The goddess of illusion is also know as Durga, a name that means “prison fortress”. The illusion has us under its spell and the leaders weave it as her agents, to bind the living entity to this material plane filled with suffering and forgetfulness. The spell keeps us in the prison of illusion here on earth and the wardens use us as cannon fodder while they attempt to enjoy the spoils.
Well there is nothing so ripe as a moment whose time has come. So get ready, because 2020 is going to be an uncertain time, but one thing is for sure – life thrives off death. That is your beautiful planet for you, a planet that cannot survive without death, the bitter irony. Yet even generals must die, so the game has its limits for all who try to exploit it. Better we finish off living in the matrix and return to the source, where “sat chit ananda” or a consciousness of eternal knowledge and bliss exists, beyond the illusory material realm. No more birth and death, no more coming back. Liberation for one and all. All it takes is the desire, and the insight. Anyone can have it, and it’s free.
