What Is This World That We Live In? march 4 2003, 02:48 pm
submitted by: dr. gonzo

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."
- Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials


What is this world that we live in? Can we call it a world? With this deception that has been going on lately one tends to wonder if we are not living in a time capsule, buried underground somewhere, forever remembering a 1933 Germany. Are we in the fourth Reich?

This fantasy world of cowboys and Indians that our current pseudo-president is living in is going to crush us all. We are going to be compacted between a block of lies and power trips. Colin Powell, once an upstanding human being in my mind, a person of substance, is now just another lap dog for this heresy that exists in the upper echelons of our society.

At this point I am almost ready to disappear, take off into the wilderness with the other dregs of society, the ones unwilling to die for a country that no longer loves them, a country that would rather smear itself in Iraqi oil and copulate under the Washington Monument; huge orgies of old politicians and underage hookers with a penchant for buggery. The people will cry out in horror as huge monsters are unleashed and the street runs red with blood.

Maybe the best thing is to take off into the unpopulated forest and live like tree-dwellers, catch fish with my teeth, keep warm in the belly of a gutted bear. War is inevitable the way this country is going, nothing is going to stop this War of Terrorism; or was it War on Terrorism? The confusion has set in boys and girls; the only thing for sure is that terror is the right word. I’m terrorized daily, whether by the disinformation on the television, the quacks on the radio, or the internet where even the most socially deranged people can get under your skin.

This is not an attack against the first amendment, a law to be held in only the highest of regards. However it is dizzying how the obvious escapes most people. How can people sit back, being content to just be, or worse yet accept the distorted, selfish views of an organization that is supposed to listen to its people? Are we merely expendable cells that they are burning off in some all night drinking binge?

The question of the day, week, month, seems to be if we are going to invade, take over, and bring down the political system of a country that as of yet has made no threat against us in at least twelve years. They have missiles, God help us all, weapons of mass destruction, a term that should have a trademark on it by now along with strategery. With this threat of impending doom against Iraq they would be crazy to not want to hold onto them. With the recent turn of events, Iraq has started destroying their weapons of mass destructiontm, I have begun to wonder whether or not the plan this whole time was to rid them of these weapons simply to make it easier for our military to bomb the hell out of their cities with little more to worry about than bullets from poorly trained Iraqi soldiers. Our government has already dismissed this new declaration as nothing but more deception from an unstable and psychotic leader.

Granted I have no respect for a person who orders the death of his own innocent people. Hussein is nothing more than reconstituted pond scum. However, from my understanding, and correct me if I’m wrong, it is against the Nuremberg Charter, which we helped draft and signed, to wage war with a country because they might or might not be a possible threat to us in the future. A war of aggression is condemnable no matter which way you look at it and would be counteractive and hypocritical. Article VI of the Nuremberg Charter defines “Crimes against Peace” as “planning, preparation, initiation or waging of war of aggression, or a war in violation of international treaties… or participation in a common place or conspiracy . . . to wage an aggressive war.” Our past president, Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “All of us have heard this term ‘Preventative War’ since the earliest days of Hitler. I don’t believe there is such a thing, and, frankly, I wouldn’t even listen to anyone seriously that came in and talked about such a thing.” Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Bush has justified a war with Iraq as being “preemptive” and meant to prevent Saddam from launching a future war.

Now we have these Homeland Security, Patriot and Patriot II Acts that authorize secret arrests, detentions, and “disappearances” of American citizens without public notification and these citizens that are affected by these policies would have no legal recourse. Once again, many of the Nazis were harshly sentenced because of statutes that are essentially the same as these, being noted at Nuremberg as a form of state terror. To wage war with Iraq at his point without UN backing would obviously be illegal under international law, an impeachable act under the Constitution.

There has been all this talk that Bush is stupid. On the contrary, I think he is extremely smart the way he is going about things. He knows that at this point, with his cabinet the way it is and with a Republican majority in the Congress, he can pretty much get away with murder, which is what he will be getting away with when, not if, he decides to let loose the dogs of war. If he is so convinced that this is the right, justified, patriotic thing to do then maybe he should take a lesson from Napoleon and ride at the head of his men. He jogs miles a day, his an athlete’s heart rate, there’s a rumor he scarfs down energy bars like popcorn and was born with an extra organ that releases mass quantities of steroids into his bloodstream. There is no reason he couldn’t fight alongside his men. He’s in better shape than most. Of course this won’t happen; he’s our President, not an expendable body. Good Lord, what would happen if he got killed in combat, we might see our economy rebound, maybe unemployment would go down. No, we can’t have that happen.

Now I don’t wish harm to our President, in fact I think in a goofy way he is like the next door neighbor. He is enjoyable to watch, kind of like a na´ve puppy. But I think that he is blinded by his need to be accepted, probably something cultivated from his elementary school years, the overeager kid who, in his quest for acceptance, wound up doing more harm than good. Do I think he is a bad person? No, just deluded. I think that in his mind he is doing the best thing for his country, but I think that he thinks that we don’t know what we are talking about since he has pretty much shrugged off the anti-war demonstrations.

I have come to the conclusion that I in fact will take off into the unexplored wilderness of this great country. I will build a sod house somewhere in the North West. I will of course be fully stocked with semi-automatic rifles, flares, flame-throwers, and other perfectly legal weapons of minor destruction available off the back of any back-alley van in this country. Yes, I will be holed up in my grass hut heating water in a rusty pot with a fire fueled by torn up documents from what will by then be the defunct United Nations. I will be cold at night, chilly during the day, and probably contract a multitude of unknown, insect spread, diseases, but at least I will be safe. And once the bombing stops and I smell no more smoke and hear no more explosions I will emerge from my dirt covered fortress and begin to rebuild a nation that began with blood and ended with blood. I will be penniless, emaciated, and smelling like rotten vermin . . . but at least I will be free from terror.

I haven't even read this garbage but I know it's a bunch of marxists propaganda designed to start the society we live in down the same path as the Red Terror that afflicated us in the early to mid part of last century.

I believe it was Merleau-Ponty who said "If one understands by perception the act which makes us know existences, all the problems which we have just touched on are reducible to the problem of perception"

I think this statement stands on it's own to prove the futility of the above article by this no good marxist who has the audacity to call himself a DR.

if you haven't read it how do you know what you are arguing with? i really see nothing wrong with not wanting to bomb the world in to oblivion, or watch so many of my friends and family members die for a war that we can (or at least could have) avoid...

First let me just say that I find it impossible to subject myself to actually read this marxist manifesto for fear that I will be subverted thru what is obviously such a powerfull text that it has the people up in arms over it.

Now I would like to quote a few relevent passages authored by those who have come before me in lending a voice to the oposissittonism.

Я нахожу, что эта Marxist статья(изделие) написана с высоким уровнем сведений(интеллекта) и думала(мысль). Эта статья(изделие) ясно(явно) заявляет близорукость нашего правительства. Я Karl Marx согласен 100 % с хорошим Доктором Гонзо. Я нахожу, что его Bullshit взгляды будут правильным и точным.

So there!

Y'know, bring some artfully tattered designer clothes with you, and it'll be just like The Postman!

I think he meant to say:

I find, that this Marxist clause(article) (product) is written with a high level of data (intelligence) and (idea) thought. This clause(article) (product) clearly (obviously) declares short-sightedness of our government. I Karl Marx agree 100? With good Doctor Gonzo. I find, that it(him) Bullshit sights will be correct and exact.
