The Gathering Dance of Nuclear Death

The ultimate goal of the US political class.

 
 
The corporate-technocratic system happily brings missiles, and the idea of missiles, to its fake news every day, and now to an acute panic. There’s no doubt at all it contemplates someday happily to bring the real thing.
 
For a little while Hawaii thought it was under nuclear attack. There’s a conspiracy theory that someone in the Deep State wanted to panic Trump into launching nukes against North Korea.
 
I don’t know about that, but one thing certain is that Republicans and Democrats, working together as usual, are doing all they can to whip America into a war hysteria such that even an accident (such as the government is claiming this Hawaii incident to be) becomes more likely to trigger nuclear war.
 
(The nuclear war fever is mirrored by the technocracy’s ongoing cult of nuclear power, which has never been anything but an economic boondoggle, dependent on unsustainable fossil fuels and uranium, driving war, generating an unsolvable and mounting nuclear waste disposal crisis, horrifically destructive of the environment. The climate crocodiles love nukes. The US lies about Iran, but there’s no doubt about the essential affinity of the US civilian nuclear deployment and its weaponized war deployment. Just like with pesticides.)
 
Anyone left who’s rational needs to be aware of the total malevolent stupidity of both halves of the Corporate One-Party and their bots.
 
If there’s any fellow mammals out there, better find cover, preferably in groups, while the dinosaurs cheer on the asteroid for which they’ve long prayed.

  2. I don’t know how correct this theory is, but it’s certainly typical of how the corporate state acts.
