Yeah good point -- this is why Noam Chomsky states that National Public Radio is the worst form of mind control because it creates a false framework
of seemingly intellectual discussion that smoothly ignores the pink elephant in the room.
Or as Greg Palast calls it "National Petroleum Radio."
So consider it long term -- Moon, Sun, and Witches: Gender Ideologies and Class in Inca and Colonial Peru
This book title documents how the pre-Incan cultures were matrifocal lunar cultures -- based on horticultural and easy living but when the Inca
conquered them the males were forced into a new deal -- if the males want to marry they have to
1) join the military for the Inca empire
2) pay taxes to the Inca in the form of potato harvest.
Now most men want to get married so they buy into the above "deal" and it's really no different then what was the "middle class" of the U.S. based on
WWII. So essentially everyone was patriotic, etc. For the females conquered by the Inca they had to submit to the Incan elite females who sort of
controlled the whole elite system.
Like Dick Cheney being secretly controlled by his wife.
I mean essentially -- and no one wants to admit this -- but civilization going back to the Greeks pretends to be "democratic" but it's really a
military empire. So there is that external and internal dichotomy. The people who are "against taxes" are also "pro military" which happens to be
the biggest use and most inefficient use of tax monies.
So what is civilization anyway? Basically not just to take control of others territory and resources so one tribe or "nation" can dominate over
others as the U.S. has military bases all over the world for this purpose -- but also to control the internal population through brainwashing and
The tax paying military serving "middle class" have to be the most mind controlled. As Noam Chomsky says when brutal force can not be used to control
people because it's ostensibly a "democracy" then there has to be mind control. If you can control a person's mind then you have also controlled
So of course the whole Cold War was a scam as a huge tax subsidy for the military
But more over all these "spin off" technologies from the military do not make the economy more efficient -- like the internet, etc. but rather create
automation as the number one cause of job losses
If we want employment as mass labor we need manual labor but this is just not possible in this high tech era.
People worship technology as our new religion. This goes back to Plato -- it's built into logarithmic math.
There seems to have been some connection with the Delphi temple (the name Pythagoras means “voice of Pythia,” the snake-goddess of Delphi and
its oracle). They have been likened to the Free Masons, in that they served as a kind of Council of Foreign Relations or New World Order…. Archytas
developed the musical scale into a political metaphor for the scales of justice. What gave music this imagery of social balance and just proportion
was the ability of its mathematics of harmonic (“geometric”) proportions to serve as an analogy for how inequities of wealth and status rendered
truly superior men equal in proportion to their virtue — which tended to reflect their wealth. By this circular logic the wealthy were enabled to
rationalize their hereditary dominance over the rest of the population.
Professor Michael Hudson’s essay, “Music as an Analogy for Economic Order in Classical
Antiquity” in Jürgen Backhaus (ed.), Karl Bücher. Theory, History, Anthropology, Non-Market Economies
(Marburg:Metropolis Verlag, 2000): pp. 113-35.
The secret truth is that logarithmic mathematics inherently justifies logarithmic technology as unequal economic orders. So then the distribution of
wealth matches the logarithmic mathematics. It goes that deep.
