Formal Credentials

Filed under: GMO Corporate State, Mainstream Media, Scientism/Technocracy — Russ @ 11:44 am

>

This site rejects credentialism, i.e. the ideology that only those who have received formal credentials from establishment institutions have any standing to express critical points of view about technological and bureaucratic projects of the corporate establishment.
 
From this point of view cheerleading, of course, is fine, and therefore you’ll never see a pro-GMO activist saying a non-STEM type like Jon Entine or Owen Patterson should recuse himself from pontificating on what the cultists call “scientific issues”. This is one of the proofs that public STEM types have no moral integrity and are nothing but liars and hypocrites.
 
Well, we know that formal credentials mean nothing in themselves, and indeed that the more formal education one has, the more likely one is to have “learned” all the wrong things and to be arrogant in one’s ignorance. I think it was Mark Twain who said that the problem isn’t those who don’t know but those who don’t know but “know what isn’t so.” That sums up the West’s “educated” class perfectly. There’s no question that the higher one’s IQ, the more conformist and idiotic one’s likely to be where it comes to everything that’s important. Including being stupid enough to believe that IQ tests measure much more than one’s skill at taking such a test. I’m saying that as someone who scored 154 when I took the test as part of a middle school gifted-and-talented program. I also had the highest SAT score in my high school graduating class. But I’ve never been dumb enough to think my test skills were what proved my intelligence.
 
If I’m intelligent, what proves it is my willingness to see what is and not to lie to myself about anything. And then my willingness to learn for myself about anything which I consider important and which I haven’t previously learned. (I remain somewhat astonished at how completely ignorant electoral-type people are about the politicians they worship. I personally know many Clinton/Obama voters, and I doubt a single one could pass a high school-level quiz about what those politicians have actually done in their careers.)
 
I will say, however, that if a credential is to matter, then my BA in political science is the best preparation for understanding such a complex, 100% political/economic matter as GMOs. So if I were to be converted to the credentialist ideology, I’d then say that only myself and those who have a similar academic career have any standing to pass judgement about pesticides and GMOs, while STEM types must be ruled out as having no relevant knowledge.
 
Indeed, if we’re going to talk about expertise then to understand GMOs requires a special mix of knowledge. One must know political theory, economics, history, ecology, human medicine, and agronomy. Other sciences are far less important. Of course the whole thing is not a “scientific” matter at all, but a political controversy. Anyone who says science has anything to do with the economic deployment of GMOs is a liar or a moron.
 
The fact is that to understand such a vastly politically ramified matter as genetic engineering requires generalist knowledge most of all. This is precisely the kind of understanding which corporate education seeks to suppress and destroy.
 
And why do the universities and media hate and disparage this knowledge most of all? Because it’s the kind of knowledge necessary for true political participation, and the kind which tends to drive people to want to politically participate. The establishment is dedicated to discouraging such participation, and all its ideas and themes are committed to this suppression.
 
The takeaway from all this is that poison-based agriculture is properly a generalist matter, and most specifically a political/economic matter. Therefore the best credential for it is being an intellectually honest and adventurous person, while receiving the corporate/university STEM indoctrination regimen is probably the worst, most anti-intellectual way to derive an ideology.
 
Like I said yesterday, the corporate “scientific” establishment deserves zero trust or respect, and on the contrary should be driven out with a whip as the proven systematic liars and malign cultists they are.
 
If there’s to be an abolitionist movement, it’ll need to be clear about the absolute illegitimacy of the intellectual establishment, both in principle and in practice.

There Are No Scientists Within the Establishment

<

(Perhaps some poetic exaggeration in that headline. But if we are to have a rigorous definition of a scientist, this must include the fraternity’s own criterion of speaking “as a scientist” only within the bounds of one’s formal discipline, and clearly stipulating where one speaks purely as an opinionated layman. That, of course, is always the case with STEM-credentialed pro-GMO activists, as I demonstrated in this classic piece.)
 
 
Besides the other things wrong with the pro-GMO activists – the fact that they’re liars in everything they say, that they’re corrupt to the core, that they’re factually wrong on every single point – it can’t be stressed enough that every time “scientists” publicly comment on pesticides and GMOs (and many other things), they’re proving they’re not scientists at all, but just typically stupid and ignorant blowhards. Just to cite the example of the ringleader of the “Nobel laureates” (as it pleases GMWatch still to call them) who signed a Syngenta manifesto on behalf of the golden rice hoax, Richard Roberts is not a scientist or an expert in any way relevant to almost any discussion of golden rice or GMOs as such. He’s a pure ignoramus and idiot who has zero credentials or knowledge of agriculture, ecology, economics, history, or political theory, yet who specializes in pontificating about these while the media fraudulently depicts him as some kind of expert on these subjects. See here for another typical example of alleged “scientists” (the AAAS), an NGO (Pew), and the media collaborating to propagate a massive intellectual fraud by fraudulently representing ignorant and corrupt laymen as “scientists”. Roberts, of course, is not a scientist but a profiteering biotech subsidy-miner, and is simply talking his book.
 
If there’s to be such a thing as a real anti-GMO movement, this movement needs systematically to discredit and de-legitimize the so-called scientific establishment, which we know is nothing but a propaganda front. We must systematically apply the standard that anyone who claims to uphold the credentialist principle is automatically being anti-science the moment he claims to speak with authority on any subject which is not part of his formal credential. We must publicly assert this standard at every opportunity.
 
(Meanwhile, ironically, for anyone who actually does care about science, Roberts is one of those who in his actual scientific work has debunked the entire theoretical basis of genetic engineering and beanbag genetics as such by contributing to the demonstration of how chaotic the genetic functioning really is. The fact that as a lying hack ideologue he misrepresents his own scientific work says it all about his absolute lack of integrity.)
 
———
 
 
“If Only the Czar Knew!” To toss in a related point, I’ve noticed people trying to exonerate pollsters for their rather poor performance in projecting the outcome of the plebiscite. They blame the media for dumbing down the intricacy of the statistical forecasts, the public for not reading the fine print, etc.
 
Now let’s get this straight. No one propagates the cult of any group of “experts” more relentlessly than the experts themselves. The mainstream media just follows the experts’ lead. As it must, since the media receives all its propaganda themes from the experts themselves. The most inveterate and reckless popularizers are always the experts themselves. The worst scientism wingnuts are the scientists themselves. The most demented theologians of engineering are the engineers themselves. The most arrogant pomposities of the economist priesthood are spewed by the economists themselves. And no one touts the infallibility of the polls more disingenuously than the pollsters themselves. The whole business of blaming things on the media, on popularizers, and of course on the people themselves, is just another version of “if only the czar knew.” But anyone who knows history knows that the most radical, aggressive, insane part of the autocracy is always the autocrat himself. And so it is with the many cults of the “experts” currently afflicting humanity like a plague. Here most of all we need the vaccine and the purgative.

What is “States’ Rights”?

>

And so once again we see lots of rhetoric about “states rights”. What does this term mean? I’ll begin by describing the principle of it, insofar as I can deduce any principle from the rather inchoate rhetoric of its proponents. Of course what it’s really supposed to mean in practice is something different, i.e. the usual collaboration with corporations.
.
1. It makes a fetish of lines drawn on a map rather than any value derived from morality or reason.
.
2. It does not want to be rational and base political units on watersheds or foodsheds.
.
3. It is a form of pure statism which wants arbitrarily to centralize beyond rationally defined boundaries for no purpose other than to concentrate power.
.
4. It differs from other pure statists in that it wants arbitrarily to halt the centralization at some point rather than expand this indefinitely. Lacking any other basis for where to call a halt, it chooses the arbitrary borders* of US states as the place to do this.
.
[*There’s a few state borderlines which run along the crests of mountain ranges where streams divide, and thus in themselves are rational. But these are never organically part of any larger rational system of borders. Meanwhile far more common is the actively irrational practice of using rivers themselves as legal-political borders. This is worse than purely arbitrary; it aggressively splits reason in half.]
.
.
So there it is. States rights ideology is based on two arbitrary leaps. First, it arbitrarily wants to centralize beyond rational boundaries and without regard for any rational or moral value. It has this in common with other forms of statism. Second, and contrary to conventional statism, it arbitrarily wants to halt the centralizing process somewhere short of however far power can concentrate itself.
.
Some may say I’m leaving something out, that states rights does have a value, the value of constitutionalism. Allegedly, in exalting the tenth amendment this is trying to recapture the true spirit of the 1788 constitution.
.
The most obvious refutation of this is that states righters, like everyone else who claims the constitution as a value, seem to care little to nothing about other core elements of the constitution such as those which would make the imperial army, the police state ,and the prison-industrial complex impossible, nor do they seem concerned to take back the constitution from corporate abusers. (For this, one must look to the community rights movement.) So in idolizing the constitution the states rights types are really just cherry-picking.
.
And indeed, should the 1788 constitution, conceived by elites for the avowed purpose of quashing the American Revolution and building a continental empire (both Hamilton and Madison say so in the Federalist papers), be an object of idolatry in the first place? The fact is that constitution-worship is no value in itself for anyone, but rather is always a stalking horse for other, usually pro-corporate agendas. Of course the constitutional conventioneers accepted the Bill of Rights in the first place only under duress and only because they were confident that the authoritarian centralizing campaign enshrined in the main articles of the document wouldn’t unduly be hindered by what they saw as a pointless sop. And so it has been.
.
Nor do I see any reason to think the states rights people have any greater respect than conventional centralizing statists do for the vastly more rational and morally coherent philosophy of community rights. If anything, the states rights types might be even more aggressive in wanting to allow/help corporations to devastate communities.
.
Obviously in practice the notion of state rights is just like the constitution, or law, or property, or “free trade”, or “science”, or “the free press” or what have you. It’s propagated by corporate elites and meant to be used and abused, regarded and disregarded, in a purely cynical, tactical way according to whatever maximizes corporate domination.
.
By fetishizing a purely arbitrary legally-defined border and caring zero for reason or any moral value, the “state rights” notion is especially useful for this corporate purpose. In this way it goes well with the most vile feral scam of all, “libertarianism”, which wants direct corporate dictatorship and uses the rhetoric of “freedom” to mean “freedom from all mutual responsibility, freedom from all human community, from all moral and rational values, license for total exploitation and theft, for those who are already rich.” Of course corporations are nothing more or less than creations and extensions of government, so to be for corporate power is by definition to be for big government, while to be against big government has to mean wanting to abolish government’s corporate power. That’s why it’s called the corporate state, a monolith. How in principle libertarians can be simultaneously for and against the most vile extremes of big government remains one of the mysteries of the universe. Of course the simple truth is that they’re liars. If they weren’t they’d be anarchists.
.
Getting back to the state righters, I suppose many of them have the temperament which, among national groups, tends to manifest as nationalism. But, in spite of lots of idiotic rhetoric from conservatives and liberals alike, there is so far no such thing as an American nation, nor can a new nation ever cohere under the conditions of corporate globalization. Indeed, globalization’s basic thrust is to eradicate all human modes except that of the atomized individual, all alone in body and soul, facing the awesome might of the corporate demon. Never forget, anyone who in any way speaks against movement solidarity and organization as such is doing the work of the corporate Satan. (It should be needless to say that any political philosophy which explicitly or implicitly says voting is the be-all and end-all is part of this corporate assault.) Anyone who dreams of an American nation must commit to the total abolition of corporate rule as a prerequisite.
.
It’s possible such an abolitionist movement itself can be a strong point where such a national consciousness can begin to cohere.
.
Humanity and the Earth need a new movement based on a complete organic embrace of human values and reason, on the new idea necessary for a new beginning as natural history soon resumes after the berserk digression of the fossil fuel binge. And we need a movement basis which totally rejects and condemns all the lies and stupidities of the corporate global “order”. We must form the adamant core of the affirmation and the inexorable force of the negation. Anything which can be used toward these great goals may be used, but only in the right ways. The wrong ways also are for the flames.
.
We have a long, hard road ahead. The necessary work is only beginning. It will continue at its necessary pace without regard for the idiocies of superficial “politics” and false “culture”. There we see nothing but decadent barbarism. The corporate age was always evil, and now it becomes ever more rancid. Sometimes it seems human beings need gas masks. It’s hard to tell what’s worse, the physical poisons or the spiritual ones.
.
But the eternal wind, the wind of the spirit which nourishes and cleanses and carries us always between and through the home to which we’re heading and the home we never left, never stopped flowing. Briefly amid the din of Babylon we were unable to hear it and lost knowledge of whence and where it blows. But the strains of the new song are starting to come through.

Kangaroos

<

As always, I voted No in yesterday’s plebiscite, as I vote against corporate rule every day of my life. That’s part of my whole way of life, my life of faith-in-action.
.
But, if I’d been forced at gunpoint to vote Yes in the plebiscite, this is the outcome I would’ve picked. It’s the “lesser evil”, to use the favored formula of the wingnuts.
.
Here’s the speculative reasons why the idiot Trump is a better outcome than the idiot Clinton:
.
1. With any luck we’ll get the most extreme strife and mutual reviling among the Clinton wingnuts, the Sanders wingnuts, and the Stein wingnuts that at least some of them will wake up to the fact that the entire electoral concept is rotten to the core and that the whole thing needs to be blown up completely.
.
I stress, maybe some of them will wake up, though I have very low expectations of any of those three sects.
.
2. If the previous pattern holds, a Republican administration will bring out more active resistance and protest against the imperial war and other corporate aggressions. As we saw during the Bush years, there were many who opposed the war and corporate assaults on the environment, not because they really oppose those as such – when it became Obama’s war and Obama’s assaults, these persons then supported those crimes – but because they oppose them when it’s Republicans doing them.
.
So now that it’ll be Trump’s war, Trump’s pipeline, Trump’s Monsanto rather than Obama/Clinton’s war, Obama/Clinton’s pipeline, Obama/Clinton’s Monsanto, maybe more bodies will get out there to oppose in some way.
.
I say this not because I think it’ll directly have a great effect to get such an influx of such worthless hypocrites, but because just the fact of there being far more people out there doing something, with greater volume than before, may help encourage more conversions to the real anti-corporate philosophy and action.
.
But as I said, this is speculative, and any such action dividend will depend on the ability of real abolitionists, real revolutionaries, real prophets, to force the true word home among this resistance.
.
Of course the corporate media and the Clinton wingnuts will do all they can to propagate the exact opposite of this, that the reason Clinton lost is that she wasn’t right wing enough. I don’t see how it’s possible to be further to the right than Clinton – the only difference between her and Trump is communication style, not ideology or policy – but that’s what Democrat establishment criminals and cultists always do.
.
Most of all, the absolutely necessary prerequisite for anything to change in this world, is that the Democrat Party, the single most malign and vile obstacle to change, must be completely blown up and destroyed. So anything which escalates and intensifies the hostility and conflict among those who support the Party, especially those who fantasize moronically about “redeeming” it in some way, is a pure good. That’s why if I had to choose an outcome, this is the one I would have chosen.

Poison-Based Agriculture Can’t Endure Capitalism Where They Don’t Control It

>

Dannon says it will expand its purchase of dairy products from suppliers who use non-GM feed. One of the most crucial campaigns of the Food Sovereignty movement for the near future is to expand the economic space for non-GM animal feed. Therefore such programs on the part of food manufacturers are helpful, and this is obviously a promising line of action for campaigners, to pressure and encourage manufacturers to help themselves by breaking free of Monsanto’s stranglehold. Along with retailers, manufacturers are more directly affected by citizen and consumer pressure than the agribusiness sector. Everyone, including the food manufacturers, knows that GMOs benefit literally no one but Monsanto and the biotech sector. They do nothing but impose a massive tax and vast harms on everyone else and society as a whole.
.
Monsanto is orchestrating a campaign of pressure and propaganda. Its captive industrial “farm” groups led by the so-called “US Farmers and Ranchers Alliance”, and including industrial lobby groups for non-food commodity corn, soy, and sugar beets, sent a letter to Dannon trying to intimidate it into reversing its policy. None of these groups has anything to do with farming, rather they are front groups orchestrating propaganda, lobbying, and pressure on farmers to comply with corporate directives. Ironically the letter lays out clearly what these lackeys fear and the rest of the world wants, that such manufacturer programs will lead to a “tipping point” away from GM cultivation and toward non-GM conventional and organic. The usual bottom-feeders in the corporate media, such as the article included in the link above, are boosting the letter. As always, the hacks have literally nothing but the most tawdry, shallow, thousand-times-disproven lies.
.
This incident gives insight into three things.
.
1. It shows in action the Poisonism-dominated propaganda structure including how the USDA imposes a tax on all producers and consumers of meat and dairy products, the revenue from which is then placed at the disposal of the biggest agribusiness corporations to run propaganda campaigns of their own design. This mandatory “checkoff” program is proof that the USDA is nothing but the thug and lackey of Monsanto, Cargill, ADM and other giant commodity sellers.
.
2. It once against demonstrates Monsanto’s basic Mafia attitude and its preference for gangster tactics. A buyer is having doubts about your product and exploring competing options? The answer of course isn’t to improve your own product, but to try to strong-arm him into continuing to buy from you. This gangsterism has always been Monsanto’s preferred course of action, although to be fair we must admit that since GMOs have zero redeeming qualities and are nothing but a far more expensive, much lower quality product, the only way it’s been possible for the corporate state to force into being an artificial market for them is through massive corporate welfare, media campaigns based on lies, and thuggery. As we see with the checkoff program and all its other Big Ag subsidies, the USDA understands this perfectly well.
.
3. As Monsanto’s industry flunkeys show their hostility toward a capitalist corporation exploring the possibilities of the market, we see a typical example and proof of what a lie it is that capitalism is “rational” and is about nothing but dispassionately responding to market signals. If Dannon’s move is bad business, the customers won’t respond, by definition. But if the customers respond, then by definition it’s good business. Either way, what conceivable capitalist objection could any of these whiners have?
.
No, it’s obvious that they object because of their irrational ideological/religious commitment to the Monsanto GMO campaign as such. Of course Monsanto pays the industry front groups, but the fact that media and pundits who are not being paid directly* join the campaign is proof that here we are not discussing a market phenomenon, but a cult of religious zealots who are trying to influence the business decisions of market actors. We saw the same thing with Chipotle.
.
It should be needless to say that big corporations like Dannon and Chipotle don’t do the things they do out of any kind of altruism (though it’s true that many of the “anti-GMO” people also seem confused about this, as put most starkly on display in their euphoria over the Campbell’s/Lynas/Cornell marketing ploy). Yet the Monsanto priesthood, as usual having no rational arguments or evidence available, has had to settle for ridiculing such alleged idealism. In reality the truth is the exact opposite. Dannon etc. are typical capitalist actors seeking profit in the textbook way, while the pro-GMO activists comprise a deranged fundamentalist cult which likes capitalism only in its pro-poison form but would become full-blown communists if this was necessary in order to preserve and enforce the worthless and destructive technologies which are the focus of their cult idolatry. The USDA/Monsanto propaganda tax is a perfect example of this kind of neo-communist policy. Obviously anyone who really believes in capitalism, if any such people exist, would join with all the other opponents of this program in order to abolish it. Same for GMOs as such, and any similar pure artifice of the corporate state for which no natural market exists.
.
.
*Of course some alleged “journalists” like Tamar Haspel, Amy Harmon, and Keith Kloor are actually paid liars only posing as journalists. The editors of the New York Times, Washington Post, Slate, Discover, Nature, and other leading corporate media outlets willfully collaborate in this fraud upon the American people. These are all on exactly the same moral and legal level as Julius Streicher, condemned at Nuremburg for collaborating in crimes against humanity through his propaganda activities.

Black Horse Chronicle, October 8th. The Propagandist

>

.
.
We see the propagandist, the “second beast” of Revelation 13, in action. This is just one example, but one of the most typical and extreme.
.
Here’s some fighters on the front of ideas calling for a corporate PR team to be kicked off campus. They should be especially explicit that the “Alliance for Science” has literally zero to do with science and is in fact aggressively anti-science by any measure of scientific method.
.
This front group is perhaps the most clear-cut example of how corporate money can directly purchase propaganda under the name of “science” on university campuses, and how the STEM fraternity as a whole willfully, consciously, with malice aforethought shills for this massive academic fraud. It is an example of what the Mafia calls sticking up for Cosa Nostra, “Our Thing”. The average STEM cadre, and many post-graduate types in general, is completely ignorant about genetic engineering and GMOs but does know that a hard core of the fraternity is fanatically in support of this campaign, and that’s all these authoritarian followers need to know: It’s Our Thing.
.
Nevertheless they’re too cowardly to debate about it under circumstances where they don’t have total control and total license to lie. As a rule one prefers not to debate when one is lying and/or has a great preponderance of power. Since both apply in the case of corporate “science”, it’s not surprising that they’ve been dodging this event. (Latham is right that Cornell is pretty lame in how it’s been executing its Gates-given propaganda mission. This isn’t the first time they’ve allowed the unwashed peasants to get in a word vs. their betters. If I were Gates I’d be annoyed.)
.
Nevertheless it’s telling that even given the opportunity to use superior force to stomp truth into the ground with their well-amplified and professionally rehearsed lies, the pro-GMO activists are too cowardly to try. As always, they have no confidence in themselves or their lies except in places where they can act as pure thugs and direct shameless liars, like in comment threads.
.
The fact is that “scientists” find it harder than anyone to admit they’ve been proven wrong. In complete disregard of the many decades of failure and crime poison-based agriculture has racked up by now, establishment “science” remains committed to poisonism. This displays the most extreme flat-earth fundamentalism of any cult ever.
.
.
.
Such systematic lies, propagated relentlessly on a global level, enlisting state of the art psychological techniques, bolstered by all that remains of the prestige and legitimacy of science, academia, and journalism, comprise the essence of the second beast, the propagandist, whose theology permeates the scientism-technocracy cult to the core.
.
They don’t mind failure, lack of truth, outright lying. They feel no shame. This is because they believe as an article of religious faith that there’s no difference between power and truth. They intone with Hegel, “The powerful is the rational.” Their answer to Pilate’s question “What is truth?” is, “Whatever power can do.” They snarl with the Athenians at Melos, “The strong do what they can, the weak suffer what they must.”
.
This goes with their dogmatic denial that any variation in the state of something can add up to any value at all (for example, health vs. illness or injury) which should override their totalitarian will to manipulate and control as far as their technological capacity allows.
.
Power is truth, might makes right: This is the core fundamentalist tenet of all establishment STEM types. This is also why they can so easily subordinate themselves to temporal, especially corporate*, power.
.
They intend to use corporate and government power, up to and including the ultimate extremes of violence, to force their vision to become reality. They have faith that they will be able to do this. Thus they’re serene in their faith that they have possession of “truth”.
.
It matters not that today they do nothing but lie; here truth vs. falsehood is only a matter of mundane chronology. It will all become true in the future.
.
And the future also is now, since what really matters where it comes to GMOs, the Singularity, colonizing space, geoengineering, the rapture of nuclear war, is always the idea of these as this idea exists right now. These ideas are weapons of war and notes of religious certitude. The reality of these, the objective fact that none can accomplish any of the benefits claimed for it and can bring only destruction, is meaningless.
.
Force, power will be enough to make it all come true in the temporal reality, if this force wages war aggressively enough on behalf of these ideas and isn’t confronted with even more powerful opposing ideas whose own power is in their real Truth.
.
And history then will be rewritten to wipe out the prior temporal failure, and this too will cease to exist.
.
This is the propagandist’s role in this final war. This is the role of the corporate lie machine. Cornell University, as launderer of the Gates Foundation’s lies, provides a typical example, and one of the most extreme.
.
Conversely, the equal and opposite reaction is to confront the great machine of lies with the great movement of Truth. The War of Ideas is one front of this Third World War already in motion, and one of the few fronts where humanity and Gaia already have the advantage if we can only organize the available forces. The physical war so far is predominantly on the fronts of biological and chemical warfare, and yet so few people realize it. This is the work of the propagandist. One of our first Great Tasks is to clarify this fact, proclaim it and drive it home to all of humanity, so that the idea of the fact is as clear and tactile as one’s street being under artillery bombardment.
.
Because physically, what’s already being perpetrated upon us is not far short of that. Spiritually we are 100% there.
.
.
*Scientists and engineers admire corporations above all because these pure sociopaths comprise the ultimate form of technocratic rule and the organization of concentrated power for the sake of power and nothing else.
.
For this latter reason corporations also comprise the ultimate organizational mode of Mammon, the fundamentalism of subordinating and reducing all of reality to money relations.
.
.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. The same old crew at it again.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. The same old crew at it again.

Black Horse Chronicle, October 7th. Commodity.

<

.
.
.
Step right up. The rider of the black horse holds the scales. The horses of war and death and hell ride close behind. Everything’s for sale. All must go. What’s your fancy?
.
What do you need to buy? What are you willing to pay? But you already know, the price is all. Be assured, you shall pay to the last penny. (Matthew 5:26)
.
The rider of the black horse is the patron demon of all commodity sellers, all who sell not a useful good but a marker of power. He is the true symbol of the terrible propagandist who casts the spell of the corporate persons and brings all their fictions to life. Most of all he conjures their demon selves, for corporations exist nowhere but in the worst nightmares and curses of men.
.
The corporations comprise the first beast, their collective mouth and image-master is the second. Babylon’s government, under infernal inspiration, is the forger of the first and loudest amplifier of the second.
.
The propagandist: “…And deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast…And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 11:14-17)
.
Thus it is with the government, and the media, and the universities, and the scientists, and the engineers. They deceive, they tout false miracles, they exhort and conscript us to this image, with the chicaneries of law and power they impute life to this image. The image speaks, and commits murder.
.
Most of all, above and beyond, first and last, and all between, and all which is, and all which ever was, and all that shall ever be, shall be to buy and sell under the corporate mark. This is their end of days. They design the final conflict, and they offer it for sale.
.
Their final and most flashy product. Step right up. Do you need it? Are you buying?
.
Be assured, those who buy shall pay to the last penny.

Black Horse Chronicle, October 6th, Hurricanes

A minnow leaps for a midge, and the ripple can grow to a tsunami.

A minnow leaps for a midge, and the ripple can grow to a tsunami.

.
.
1. “And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.” (Revelation 16:20)
.
A temporal hurricane begins as a wisp in the spreading Sahara, warmed by the same hot draft, driven by the bonfires of oil and coal, which dries the Euphrates. (Rev 16:12) Spiritually it is kinesis of the energy pumped into the system by the flames in the minds of those who burn the fossil fuels, who light the bonfires to blaze and smoke in mockery of heaven and sky. A wisp of air, a drop of water, and all things are possible.
.
2. Our hurricane today is already a crime against humanity. Climate chaos is a campaign of world war. The governments and corporations organize it, and they deploy the heavy howitzers which beat the city to dust. The people, out of confusion and a little malice, run around with peashooters. Their actual firepower is as nothing compared to their mass image effect, their vast procession on the stage of the propagandist, most in regular garb, others in false pilgrim dress, some in hairshirts, all weaving their lines of chant to drown out word of the truth, all chorus-mastered by the second beast, the corporate propagandist.

Another kind of hurricane, artificial violence by water and wind.

3. Part of the great mystery is why the “natural”/artificial disasters manufactured by the corporate demons, after ravaging the poor, so consistently spare the core strongholds of Sodom and provide these demons with new lines of invasion. So it has been for hurricanes as well. Haiti has been a frequent target since to this day it is still reviled by the West for having the gall to put through a successful slave revolt.
.
4. But climate chaos is a rough beast which promises to turn upon its propagators with great severity. The rich have built thickly upon the sands. (Everyone knows perfectly well that nothing at all of permanent structures should be built on sand beaches and barrier islands. Anyone who says a single word beyond “build nothing here” is a criminal or coward.) But each increment of heat, like that wisp of wind and ripple of water, portends the destruction of the beachfront mini-Babylons. The coast departs as a scroll when it is rolled together, and mountain and island are moved out of place. (Revelation 6:14) Although this forced migration in itself may only be a minor inconvenience for them, it is symbolic of far greater promises, hopes, aspirations, goals.
.
5. As for Hurricane Matthew, as with all artificial disaster, let us pray that it affect no one who didn’t consent to it. We say nothing of harm, but leave it to those who consent to decide whether they be harmed of themselves.
.
6. The water cycle is the most profound manifestation of the sun cycle within Gaia. It interweaves as one with the ocean’s primordial being. The waters expand infinite prior even to the creation, as written in Genesis: “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” These waters’ manifestation on Earth is covenant of the total holism and ecology of being (“being” being only the closest way we can posit a word to denote something outside space and time). Hurricanes skip like pebbles across the magnitude, as Earth itself flows to the infinitude, and we can see feel it all in the rain, see it all in a drop of water, flowing through the cycle.
.
7. We must prepare the Earth. We must steward it. We must tend it in harmony with the stewardship ways of every other species. This is agroecology, and this is the stewardship to which God appoints us in Genesis. To serve as such stewards we must also first liberate the Earth from those using poison and the heat of their bonfires to destroy Earth and prevent the New Jerusalem by force. Heaven itself commands that the power of heaven “should destroy them which destroy the earth.” (Revelation 11:18)
.
“And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.” (Revelation 11:19)
.
8. This is the Alpha and Omega, the affirmative and negative, the dual single mission.

Black Horse Chronicle, October 4th

>

1. The books of the prophets tell always the tale of what men inflict upon themselves. God does not send the woes, does not cause the woes, but allows the woes. Why God allows the woes is the great Mystery. It seems the great conundrum of the human journey, why it’s always been possible for a mere handful of the wicked to direct the great multitude against all their natural tendencies to neighborness and cooperation. This is the eternal conundrum neither theology nor secular political theory have been able to solve. Yet the solution is the key to the ecological renaissance, revolution, restoration, and redemption. The only thing clear is that this solution requires a spiritual great leap and breaking free. Nothing we can know using the names and marks of Babylon can avail.
.
2. God does not send the woes, but he does send the inner strength and the great aspirations and helps articulate the themes and ideas and plans and helps reinforce the will to act, all to the help of anyone who has faith in the cycles of life, the logic of history, and the grace of God. Therefore God sent himself Incarnated as Jesus Christ, and therefore Jesus in turn suffused us with the Holy Spirit. This Spirit is the medium of all the graces sent by God, requiring only that we accept the grace of faith to activate the rest. Thus the Holy Spirit suffuses us always, as it suffuses and is concurrent with the entire ecology. And Jesus himself remains with us always.
.
(3. Nor does this exclude the modes of God’s revelation through other cultures. God is manifold. His graces come in many styles. We all swim amid the same Spirit, but call it by many names.)
.
4. This must be known, for as things are humanity has become completely bottlenecked, log-jammed, while we and the Earth are under the most dire assault which designs our total death.
.
5. Yet though the power that assails us is vast, the prime cause of our paralysis is our inability to think. Not only are we mired in the slough of despond, but we struggle languidly in the quicksand of confusion. The beast himself is not so powerful, but we seem helpless confronted by the second beast who conjures with nothing but “the image of the beast” and “does great wonders” through his “power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13) Our minds are captive entire of the mirage of Babylon. “Your merchants were the great men of the earth; for by your sorceries were all nations deceived.” (Revelation 18)
.
6. All this is the work of the second beast, the propagandist, the great orchestrator of mass media. The beast is nothing, the image of the beast murders our bodies and souls.
.
7. The only night has been in the benighted minds of men, and the only paralysis is the poisoning of the mind. But as another prophet wrote, “All things are ready once our minds be so.”
.
8. The first step is to renounce all we’ve been told to know, for it is a passel of mistakes. Free our minds, and we shall unleash our souls.
.
9. The road is hard and full of tribulation. Jesus warns how difficult and painful it may become in Babylon, in Matthew 10, and Mark 13, and Luke 12 and 14, and elsewhere. Indeed such trials, for the good people, are worse than the extremities of persecution by an enemy.
.
10. But in the same word He also encourages us, “My yoke is easy, but my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:30) When once we have freed ourselves of the blinders, the hardest part of the job is done, for then the rest can begin. The Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. It is weak in the mind.
.
11. Thus our great foe is not the awesome strength of a monster, but the thin and faltering image of a beast thrown up by a “second beast”, a “false prophet” (Rev 19:20), a flunkey. The first beast barely exists, and its image can be dispersed by the whisper from the wings of a butterfly. This comes the moment we cease to believe in what is false.
.
12. “For the want of a nail the kingdom was lost.” For the want of worship of its image, the beast shall be killed, and the devil’s kingdom shall be lost.
.
13. And God extends to us the nail of faith and ideas to shod ourselves, unto victory in the battle and the rescue of the kingdom, the consummation of the New Heaven and Earth. The broadest arcs already span the sky in all colors and all the creatures of the creation sing. All things are ready once our minds be so.

Moonshine Eugenics

<

Heard of bathtub hooch? I like the Simpsons episode where Marge has to complain, “Homer, your homemade liquor is exploding again.” And then there’s the way it strikes drinkers blind or gives them lead poisoning.
.
Well, looks like we’re going to have lots of Homer Simpsons whipping themselves up some bathtub Frankenstein monsters – plants, animals, their own children, even the sky’s no limit, as the scientism cult chants. According to the hype for these Do-It-Yourself Eugenics kits, random scumbags will be able to take a break from their meth labs to tinker with genetic engineering and environmental release right from their basements. (Not that corporate deployment is any less sloppy or reckless.) In discussing a lukewarm UK “bioethics” report, GMWatch gives as one of the reasons for the lameness of the recommendations: “tighten[ing] regulation in this field….would increase public alarm about the risks of gene editing at a time when the UK government wants to reassure people of the safety of the technology…”
.
It’s probably true the British government, media, and science establishment are concerned about this possibility. But it seems to me that we could turn that around on them, saying to the people, “You were already worried about the corporate system’s GMOs. Now look at what a chaotic, deranged free-for-all genetic engineering is becoming. It’s like you feared all along – it’s complete recklessness and chaos, there’s zero controls, and literally no one has the slightest idea what they’re doing, how extremely dangerous this all is, or how horrific the effects are going to be.”
.
The most vile thing is that the kits are designed to generate antibiotic resistant E. coli, just for the fun of it. If you weren’t already convinced by systematic antibiotic abuse in CAFOs and regular genetic engineering, are you now convinced that governments, corporations, and scientists are systematically working to eradicate antibiotics as an effective medical treatment, because they want this type of medicine to cease to exist.
.
I say each and every person involved in any aspect of any of these campaigns to eradicate antibiotics is guilty of first degree murder in each and every case where someone’s death is related to antibiotic resistant bacteria, and of assault or attempted murder in each and every non-lethal case. I also apply full civil liability to each and every individual involved. These criminal and civil liabilities follow from strict application of conspiracy law. Certainly each and every one of them knows exactly what he or she is doing.
.
Where it comes to all these crimes, we are far, far past the point of ignorance or honest confusion.
