Miasma Now


“The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
– John 3.8
The same is true of the Antispirit. “Covid” blows where the insane hive mind wishes, you hear the sound of it through the propaganda machine and the terrorized squeals and grunts of the mass. But no one can tell what it is, where it comes from, where it goes. People, almost all of them hyper-aged, become ill but no one knows how. The only place Covid verily is known to exist at all is in a computer model. So goes everything born of the Antispirit.
Those who Gaia would destroy she first makes insane. Even I, long jaded as I became, have been taken by surprise at the sudden violent eruption of mass insanity girdling the globe in a berserk pantomime of globalism itself, the globalism all these benighted medieval masses worship. We see the pyroclastic explosion of the fastest-surging global religion in all history by many orders of magnitude. We see the most all-purging cultural-spiritual tsunami in the entire human experience, the most extreme final convulsion of this most extreme destructive, self-destructive, genocidal-ecocidal global economic technocratic civilization.
They believe the Earth itself including all human bodies are toxic. To me as an agroecological grower of twelve years now who has been writing against industrial agriculture for over ten years, this is a familiar mindset though grossly aggravated and inflamed. The whole “Covid” mindset of an evil germ, a war of Man vs. Nature, the rejection of all ecological thinking in favor of brute-force technocratic interventions, all stemming from a pseudo-secularized modern version of long-running Dominion theology, all this was familiar from day one.
It’s just a monstrous inflammation of the same mindset and practice I’ve long been familiar with in industrial agriculture. That’s part of why I never believed the Covid lies for a moment.
And it’s also why I see zero reason to think we’ll ever see resistance, truth telling, or simple rationality coming from any faction of the technocratic “science”-worshippers. They’re lost to humanity once and for all, and the sooner we rid ourselves of them the better.
In the psychotic fantasies of the elites and their cogs, and the nightmares of the cultist hive mind, we confront a “pest”, a “pathogen” against which all of humanity must be conscripted to fight a total war of extermination, Victory or Death, with every kind of scorched earth, the burning of every village, the radical flooding of every poison, every artificial intervention the more totalitarian the better, to attain dominion over the what the mainstream believes is the satanic land of nature. And thus Satan gains ascendancy over their every insane self-destroying thought and action. Thus once again the devil carries out the Lord’s punishment, scourging the economic civilization’s idolatry of technology and Mammon and its rampage of destruction over the Lord’s wondrous and beautiful creation Earth.
We know the dominion plan is impossible. All the science and practice of ecology, agroecology, genetics and immunology, epidemiology and virology proves it. Biodiversity, balance, judo not frontal assault, all this works. Forcible violent intervention does not. Reductive technological thinking and practice does not. Scorched earth does not.
But their goal isn’t balance and stability or health and well-being. Their goal is extermination. Their goal is to scorch the Earth for the sake of scorching.
They hate the human body. They hate being human.
They hate the air itself, think it poisonous in every way (except for their own industrial air pollution which kills hundreds of thousands every year, their own indoor polluted air; these are normal and normative). It’s only the wholesome air they fear and hate as poison to their toxified minds.
Their minds suffer an extreme autoimmune disease where all reason and logic are turned upside down, every word now means the opposite of what it previously meant, all real evidence is automatically rejected and every lie automatically believed.
The pandemic religion acutely poisons the mind and soul, poisons them against our Mother Earth. Of all the pathogens which have used globalization as their vector, the alleged “Covid”, whatever it is, has been the most successful by far since it’s by far the most successful at diseasing the minds and souls of its hosts even without any physical infection at all but purely via non-physical communication of thoughts, “memes”, spooky action at a distance. It has attained near total dominion over all of Western civilization and wherever this toxic mode of society is aped, and almost all domesticated, “civilized”, housebroken human atoms have submitted to its dominion infinitely out of proportion to any physical harm it has done or ever could do.
Covid verily is a miasma: Not the physical miasma of the medieval superstition to which all of modern Western civilization has regressed, but the miasma of contagious fear and mental collapse, as if the tenebrous black mist emanating from Cthulhu’s portal or Shelob’s tunnel or Revelation’s abyss of Satan had suffused all of Earth’s atmosphere in the insane hive mind.
The mindset is insanity and blasphemy against Spirit and Earth. The mask is a shield and insult against the air itself. The hex spacing is a curse on all human bodies. Submission to gene-engineering injection is a self-loathing assault on one’s own body. Thus they receive the Mark of the Beast and worship the image of the beast.
They are verily Revelation’s destroyers of the Earth. The smoke of “Covid” festers as if it would become the Bible’s smoke that rises forever, obscuring all vision forever. It blows as a mental wave through the modern hive mind.
And in the blast of their psychotic self-imagined wind the hive-dwellers will tremble and shake themselves and their hive to atoms, and they’ll be gone. They lie and they fear and hate their fellows, they fear and hate themselves, they fear and hate their Earth, they fear and hate their Lord.
And so in their insanity they shall destroy themselves, and finally bring peace for the remnant.

Needful Covid Lessons


This goes with Artificial Origin and Covid in Globalist Context as part of a series explaining the philosophical and moral basis for rejecting the legitimacy of the governments of an evil, self-destructive civilization when it claims authority as a moral legislator for a so-called “pandemic” it deliberately artificially inflicted upon itself, in direct disregard of all our warnings for all these years.
All I’ve said about Covid boils down to this – however mild or severe, it is a 100% purely self-inflicted event on the part of the ecodical economic civilization. The terror-lockdown response has had zero public health motivation – we already know these governments care nothing for public health. All their ecocidal, poisonist policies, the way they arrange their health care systems, the deliberate systematic physical and mental health precarity they generate – all this proves the fact that whatever the motivations of governments and media in propagating the pandemic scare, whatever the motivations of governments and media in imposing lockdown measures, whatever the motivations of government and media in imposing social control rituals like the anti-science superstitions of masking and anti-social distancing, these motivations are purely malign.
The effects of the terror-lockdown campaign, including any economic disruption up to and including collapse, is a blow purely self-inflicted by a civilization at war with its own biological basis. This includes waging war on its own people. The pest arose either from a US bioweapon experiment or attack, or from the elements of globalization: Deforestation, global heating and climate chaos, factory agriculture, industrial mining, cramming masses into slums and shantytowns, the demolition of all public health systems and access to decent health care except for the rich. The system is deploying every kind of misdirection and scapegoating to cover up its complete culpability while seeking malign goals of covering up the ongoing collapse of every element of the economy except for Fed-inflated stock prices and other fake numbers; launch a new escalation of corporate bailouts and Wall Street plunder; intensify social control; escalate the police state; beat the anti-China war drums; carry out a mass euthanasia campaign among the sick and elderly; intensify the crisis of human alienation. The system wants to push these all as much as is politically or physically possible.
Unequivocally the virus has its source in the wickedness of the civilization, in globalization, imperialism, militarism, Mammon; and the response to it has been the most extreme manifestation of this wickedness.
This is globalization’s plague, globalization’s child, globalization’s affinity, globalization’s assault. And with the terror-lockdown campaign globalization wants to protect and maximize it all. Covid-19 coupled with the totalitarian assault and global religion stemming from it together comprise this civilization’s most typical and quintessential product, its crowning achievement.
We who oppose this, we who have opposed it all for so long (I’ve been doing this blog for eleven and a half years now, and studying for the fight for years before that, we who already have suffered so much and now again are made blameless victims of the crimes and insanities of this global Babylon, we have no truck with all this, we owe its perpetrators nothing, we are free as a bird.
Meanwhile all their pretensions are so much vanity. Earth guarantees with certitude that whatever this virus is going to do, it’s going to do. SARS-COV-2 shall complete its cycle regardless, and there’s nothing their stupid worthless ecocidal civilization can do about it. Since they generated this epidemic, however mild or severe it belongs to them, and how do they think you can recall your bullet with the same gun that fired it?
Perhaps the most obnoxious element of the entire top-down terror-lockdown assault and bottom-up (albeit heavily astroturfed) mass insanity is the arrogance of it all, the presumption, the sinful pride.
(This has an analogue in the presumption of the climate-industrial movement that “green” ecocide somehow isn’t ecocide and can solve the civilization-driven climate crisis and general ecological collapse.)
When we contemplate the many berserker vandalisms and demolitions perpetrated by these governments and corporate demons, indoctrinated by these schools, propagandized by these media, supported by these decadent masses, the full lunacy and moral disreputation of any institution or average necropolitan denizen to say a word about their crowning Corona becomes fully evident.
A civilization that ruthlessly and relentlessly digs up and unleashes hundreds of millions of years of sunk carbon in order to scorch the Earth can remain silent on Covid. It has nothing to say to us.
A civilization that ruthlessly massacres trillions of trees toward the goal of turning forests to deserts can remain silent on Covid. It has nothing to say to us.
A civilization that ruthlessly drives the mass extinctions of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians, fish, insects, can remain silent on Covid. It has nothing to say to us.
A civilization that ruthlessly slathers the earth, water, air with every kind of industrial poison and which poisons its own food and water and the general environment with pesticides and GMOs, these poisons being the real purpose of its agriculture, can remain silent on Covid. It has nothing to say to us.
A civilization whose own mainstream “environmental” groups and climate-industrial movement can envision no way to respond to these calamities than to double down on every technocratic evil up to and including advocacy for geoengineering can remain silent on Covid. It has nothing to say to us.
The basic guiding principles for understanding the entire Covid event are:
1. The origin of the epidemic lies in globalization, imperialism, militarism. The economic civilization’s weaponized use of the idea of a lethal pandemic (the idea, since no such thing exists yet in reality) is in the service of these evils.
2. Only the most extreme Dominion theology and technocratic ideology believe that once this virus is at large in the environment, as it has been at least since last autumn, that artificial government-applied measures can prevent it from completing its natural cycle toward its end in herd immunity. But then the real purposes of lockdown and social control measures aren’t really to prevent this end, but to use the opportunity toward the most malign economic, political, biological goals. This is history’s most extreme exercise in disaster capitalism.
As for anyone who really would want to try to contain a globally free-ranging epidemic, we know from every other ecological context that the only thing which works is natural balance through maximal biodiversity, while forcible violent attempts at segregation and sterilization, such as are characteristic of industrial agriculture and of these lockdown measures, always fail.
3. Everything that’s been done has been the radical opposite of what should have been done from the perspective of any sane, rational, well-meaning public health goal. Institutions where the vulnerable people (elderly and already ill) are concentrated should have been protected while everyone else went about normal life. Instead normal life was devastated, subject to the most extreme and intrusive terrorist propaganda and police state measures, subject to the psychological pandemic of constant extreme uncertainty, while the one thing which was not done was to protect the institutionalized vulnerable. This was no accident either. Although we’ll likely never know how many bona fide Covid deaths there were, only that the real number is vastly less than the manipulated official number, we do know that the vast majority of these deaths were government-perpetrated murders, the result of a systematic euthanasia campaign.
These are principles of Gaian social practice and politics for a pandemic era. Although Covid-19 is not a big one, it is a shot across the bow. Worse will come so long as the economic civilization continues on its self-driven quest to be the destroyer of the Earth. The time to learn that everything governments have done regarding Covid are wrong and upside down is now.

Covid in Globalist Context


Covid-19 and the terror-lockdown offensive which uses it as a pretext comprise a purely globalist project, and those who perpetrate or support globalization are responsible for this epidemic, however severe or mild it is. They own complete responsibility. We who oppose globalization, militarism, imperialism have no responsibility here but to do our own research and speak truth (i.e., normal citizen responsibilities in any democracy worthy of the name), and beyond that whatever we deem necessary to protect and defend ourselves, our loved ones, and our cherished principles and values insofar as these come under assault by either a pathogen or a cult using a pathogen as a pretext. Either of these is a malign affliction, and a mask-face is just another kind of virus.
This is a key part of the necessary Gaian position and the politics that logically follow from it.
In the same way, once an infectious microbe is on the loose in the environment, however dangerous or not, it will complete its natural cycle regardless of piddling attempts by governments to constrain it, however violent and forcible these attempts at segregation and sterilization are. This is the Dominionist-technocratic delusion that man can control and dominate nature. The terror-lockdown offensive using Covid as a pretext is history’s most extreme manifestation of this religious impulse. Its real violence and constraints are aimed at people, and social control is a core goal of the offensive. Meanwhile the disease itself will complete its cycle unto the attainment of herd immunity. Lockdowns can only delay the inevitable while adding a long list of ancillary evils along the way. These evils are the real purpose of the program.
So beyond the proven malevolence of governments, their claimed aspiration to want to use lockdowns and anti-social rituals to prevent SARS-COV-2 from completing its natural process is physically impossible anyway.
And then, those of us familiar with the principles of ecology and agroecology know that the most effective way to deal with a pest is through natural balance attained with maximal biodiversity, while attempts to eradicate the problem by exterminating all life in sight with poisons are doomed to fail. The attempt to use government force to stop the natural spread of a virus already widely at large in the environment is an extreme example of such doomed folly.
Let’s review what they’ve done and why they’re doing it.
The global necropolis plumbs the depths of Earth and rips Gaia apart. This includes gain-of-function bioweapon research in a lab. Like the mythical Satan, GE labs can’t create but only distort toward evil. They distort to generate weapons for their wars. Their militaristic wars, agricultural wars, ecocidal wars, social wars.
All this has culminated in the Covid terror-lockdown offensive, which the globalism cabal led by the US government has embarked upon toward the goals: Misdirect attention from economic collapse; perform a controlled demolition of the economy to avert a 2008-type chaotic collapse; set up a new escalated round of asset plunder; experiment with fascist top-down social control and bottom-up pressure for conformity; escalate the police state; suppress rising protest and populist movements; beat the anti-China war drums; perpetrate a Nazi-style mass euthanasia campaign against the aged and ill; radically escalate anti-human alienation and disintegration of all human community, all potential for human solidarity.
Those who perpetrate globalization, militarism, deforestation and industrial agriculture, genetic engineering and bioweapons research; every assault on the Earth and humanity, all who perpetrate or support these have consented, have volunteered for Covid-19 and far worse. They are responsible. They must repent before it is too late.
We few who always opposed all this (ironically, the vast majority of those who claimed to oppose these have chosen now of all times, have chosen the occasion of the Covid terror campaign to revert to system conformity and become system propagandists; never has a formerly dissident faction chosen so perversely to buy in to a fraudulent stock at the extreme peak of the market like this); we who continue to oppose all these never consented, never volunteered, and we have no responsibility on any level toward those who brought this epidemic, however severe or mild, upon themselves and us.
(I add: Those who perpetrate or support any kind of corporate-globalist assault on public health – industrial and agricultural poisons, mass habitat destruction, ecocide against the biological basis of our existence, support for profit-based health care systems, all neoliberal paradigms which drive stress, mental illness, malnutrition and hunger – has zero standing to say a word about the alleged danger of Covid-19, what allegedly needs to be done about it, the cult rituals such as superstition trinkets and hex distancing to which individuals allegedly need to conform, all allegedly for the sake of public health. Governments, corporations, media, those who support these, have long since proven they care nothing for the public health. Don’t let them claim now that they care. They do not.)
Where did SARS-COV-2, like any other bug, come from? The economic civilization dug for it, hacked for it, engineered it, relentlessly sought it out.
Therefore the economic civilization, its scientific-technocratic priesthood, did all it could, in the field and in the lab, to turn this bug into a terror idol. How lethal Covid-19 really is, how well it works, is secondary to the idea of a viral pandemic. It’s the same as any other war technology like pesticides or GMOs, which also don’t work toward anything but power goals.
This laboratory work, whether for weaponry or propaganda or both, is evil in intent and has no constructive purpose. The technocrats and engineers claim the work is toward public health goals, but they themselves are the biggest threat to health. This is the argument of a protection racket. And then there’s plenty of incompetence and negligence in labs.
So the lab release could have been deliberate or “accidental”, which really means collateral. Either way they intended the worst effects they could attain, whether this be physical mass murder or the pretext for a mass terror-lockdown campaign designed to terrorize billions, euthanize millions and guaranteed to murder millions more collateral victims of the lockdown itself.
Premeditation is proven by how the terror-lockdown offensive has closely followed the playbook drawn up at the Gates Foundation’s “Event 201” pandemic war games in autumn 2019.
All this proves the lockdowns have comprised a premeditated, malign plan toward stepping up economic plunder and the police state, and all the ecological, economic, social, cultural, spiritual evils listed above plus many more.
Did SARS-COV-2 come from the bowels of the military-engineering-industrial complex, or did ecocidal globalization roust it from the remotes, bring it back to civilized society and disseminate it far and wide? Either way it is perfectly designed/evolved, not just to infiltrate human cells with whatever severe or mild or nonexistent effect, but far more virulently to plug into the psychological and cultural structure of economic civilization in its late stage of collective suicide. The Covid Death Cult is the outward expression of this mass Thanatosis, this mass death wish.
From here we analyze the disease and the patient. The disease is not Covid-19, a relatively mild physical epidemic, but rather the cultural-spiritual Covid mass insanity. The Covid Death Cult is the disease, compulsive self-masking and anti-social spacing its main outward symptoms.
The patient, already staggering under a welter of socioeconomic and ecological morbidities, is the economic civilization itself.

Technocracy Delusions in Exaltation

Filed under: Dance of Death, Scientism/Technocracy — Tags: , , , — Russ @ 7:32 am


They left out, Total Destruction of the Earth Unto Collective Suicide Means Victory

These are great days for all puritans, closet fascists, bullies, solitary misanthropes living in cellars, the obese and sedentary. As part of the new mass cult they all can dress up their vices as public virtues.
Most of all it’s great days for the fundamentalist cult I’ve written against for over ten years: The fanatics of the technocratic scientism faith and especially how the economic civilization systematically injects these pathogens into a career position to act upon this theology. They dogmatically assert that any time any government or big corporation says any profitable technology is safe and necessary, the people should believe them on faith and that no questions or doubts ever should be allowed. The acute mass psychological-cultural-social crisis centered on Covid-19, astroturfed by a pre-planned government-media campaign of mass psychological terrorism and lawless autocratic lockdowns, is the most fertile terrain yet by far for this malevolent religious pathogen to make its spurious claim to authority and demand obedience.
(The epidemic itself, comparable to the rougher seasons of flu, is not in itself any kind of crisis. Only its social and political superstructure is being trumped up into an artificial crisis. But given the pathetic abdication of “the left” in recent years culminating in their mass covid-conversion to statism, authoritarianism, imperialism, globalism, it’s no surprise that almost all of our Marxist “historical materialists” also have ditched materialism completely in favor of atavistic political vapors. After all, this is the time of wholesale regression to medieval belief in the toxic miasma, that the air itself is poisonous.)
The scientism-technocrats claim there’s no such thing as social or political conflicts, no such thing as causes or origins, there’s no such thing as society period. Their faith says there’s nothing but purely technical challenges to be solved in purely technical ways, and that these technical solutions are safe and actually work. The fact that these never work and usually are unsafe never registers, only the fundamentalist technocratic belief.
It was these automatons themselves who served as the SARS-COV-2 vector by searching for it in the wild, bringing it back to their laboratories in order technologically to enhance its communicability and virulence, and then either deliberately or “accidentally” releasing it into the environment. (The record of lab escapes is too promiscuous for it not to be clear that there always will be many such incidents in these labs, so epistomologically and morally these long ago ceased being accidents and became premeditated “collateral damage”, merely a cost of doing business.) Generating the Covid pandemic in the first place was their solution to there being no such pandemic. It was their solution to the need for such a pretext for radical escalation toward their cherished vision of a techno-caliphate as openly planned at the Gates Foundation’s 2019 pandemic conclave, and as Gates has continued to proclaim openly.
Most fundamentally, these cult fanatics believe in an indelible total war of extermination of Man vs. Nature. They believe this war can and will be won through technocratic regimentation of humans and deployment of technology.
The civil religion of scientism/technocracy is nothing more or less than a secular manifestation of the age-old Dominion theology, seeking to impose the same age-old vision of theocracy.
It’s easy to see how they’ve so effortlessly joined and become leaders of the technocratic terror-lockdown campaign which is using the Coronavirus as a pretext.
They’re sincerely deluded that their shoddy, threadbare institutions and technologies can control Gaia’s bug. This is idiotic. The bug long has been at large, it will do whatever it will do, it will complete its natural cycle toward herd immunity in the host. Nothing undertaken by egomaniacal narcissistic technocratic power structures can change this. Any and all “lockdown” measures, any and all attempts at control, will accomplish nothing but to drag out the inevitable while inflicting every kind of man-made evil upon humanity and the Earth. Today the elites including the technocratic establishment are perpetrating the worst crime ever against humanity and the Earth, while the benighted masses who obey, however ardently or reluctantly, are foot soldiers of evil.
Meanwhile controlling the bug is really secondary to controlling human beings. This always was the real motivation of the architects of the terror.

Covid Protest Trajectories Seek and Resist Control


1. It’s strange how so many commentators argue so vehemently about whether or not herd immunity makes sense as a policy goal, as if they have any choice in the matter. Gaia’s going to insist. This has been true ever since the bug broke out sometime last summer or autumn. The epidemic is going to complete whatever cycle it seeks.
Dominion theology believes humanity can and should dominate the natural world. Technocracy/scientism is the modern secular offspring of this Christian parent. Both versions believe total control of nature can and should be done. This is delusional. The current lockdown ideology and program is a manifestation of this religious program.
The complete failure of all lockdown and control measures and the complete victory of the Coronavirus in attaining its goal, whatever that is, will be the first great triumph of Gaia over the directed technocratic-dominionist campaigns of the so-called “Anthropocene”. Much greater victories for the Earth over the collapsing economic civilization will follow fast.
The most the system’s lockdowns can accomplish is to protract the inevitable, multiply the harm, and add many artificial evils which are causing immense collateral harms to physical and mental health, human community and culture, and radically accelerate the economic liquidation of the people.
These evils – to provide cover for the collapsing economy, set up the pretext for Wall Street’s plunder expedition, radically escalate the police state, deeply traumatize people into submission to total social conformity, and radically aggravate the anti-social, anti-human atomization of the people – comprise the real purpose of the government media’s campaign of mass psychological terrorism.
2. A survey of schizoid symptoms:
*Don’t believe the media or government…except where it comes to Covid-19. There we must believe and obey.
*The police are psychopathic predators…except where it comes to C19. There they’re saints fighting for the public health.
*The government is psychotic, stupid and rotten…except where it comes to C19 and suppressing the protests. There its power should be radically escalated.
*The state mustn’t infringe on freedom of assembly…except where it comes to C19. There the constitution has no standing nor is there any such human right.
*”Sunlight is the best disinfectant”…except where it comes to C19. There you’re “safest indoors” away from the physical sunlight. Never mind sunlight’s nutritional value and its anti-viral virtues. And metaphorically you must never seek to cast light on the real characteristics of this government media campaign, whether it’s scientific or rational, what its real motivations are. There darkness is the imperative. There one must never think at all.
*”I can’t breathe.” I want to breathe. Except where it comes to C19. There, according to the logic of the lockdown, you should hold your breath and never breathe again.
The government is lowering a knee to help you with that.
3. The protests have no Covid analog. There the masses exultantly rushed to obey the government media’s every commandment. But this exaggerated conformity was bound to provoke its own reaction, and we’re seeing the beginning of that in the way the protests have exploded.
Meanwhile the government, in imposing curfews, deploying military forces, threatening martial law and massacres, is continuing along the same trajectory of totalitarian aspiration as the terror-lockdown campaign which used the Corona bug as its pretext.
Here too the system’s dominionist attempt at total control of nature is doomed to fail. Nature – human action and the vast ecology of which humanity is a small part – cannot be controlled this way for long.

The Ultimate Divide and Conquer


It has frequently been observed that terror can rule absolutely only over people who are isolated against each another and that therefore one of the primary concerns of tyrannical government is to bring this isolation about. Isolation may be the beginning of terror; it certainly is its most fertile ground; it always is its result. This isolation is, as it were, pretotalitarian; its hallmark is impotence insofar as power always comes from people acting together, acting in concert; isolated people are powerless by definition.
– Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism
Western civilization, led by the US government and media as always, has embarked upon a campaign of mass psychological terrorism designed to cover for the collapsing economy, set up a new pretext for Wall Street’s ongoing plunder expedition, radically escalate the police state, deeply traumatize people into submission to total social conformity, and radically aggravate the anti-social, anti-human atomization of the people.
The pretext for this abomination is a flu epidemic which objectively is a version of the same kind of flu caused by the same kind of Coronavirus we’ve endured so long without totalitarian rampages and mass insanity. The global evidence is converging on the facts: This flu is somewhat more contagious than the norm and is especially dangerous for those who are aged and already in poor health from pre-existing maladies. It is not especially dangerous for the rest of the population. The overall death rate looks to be somewhere in the range of 0.2-.02% of those infected, with the numbers from a myriad of places converging toward 0.1%.
The whole concept of “lockdowns” is exactly upside down, exactly the wrong way any sane society would respond to this circumstance. It’s the vulnerable who should be shielded while nature takes its course among the general population, who should go about life as usual. Dominionist-technocratic rigidity can’t prevent an epidemic from cycling through the population in spite of the delusions of that religion, especially since Western societies began their measures far too late anyway. So it’s best to let herd immunity develop as fast as it naturally will, at which time the virus recedes from lack of hosts (and is likely to mutate in a milder direction along the way). This is the only way to bring a safer environment for all including the most vulnerable. The fact that most societies have rejected the sane, scientific route in favor of doomed-to-fail attempts at a forcible violent segregation and sterilization is proof that governments aren’t concerned with the public health (as if we didn’t know that already from a thousand policies of poisoning the environment while gutting the health care system) but are very ardent to use this crisis they artificially generated in order radically to escalate their police state power toward totalitarian goals.
The whole concept of self-isolation and anti-social “distancing” is radically anti-human. We evolved over millions of years to be social creatures living in tight-knit groups. Although modern societies ideologically and socioeconomically work to massify and atomize people, nevertheless almost all of us still seek close human companionship in our lives.
(I suspect most of the internet police-state-mongers are not only fascists at heart but are confirmed misanthropic loners who couldn’t care less about human closeness.)
This terror campaign seeks to blast to pieces any remaining human closeness, which means any remaining humanity as such, the better to isolate individual atoms for subjection to total domination. Arendt wrote profoundly on this goal of totalitarian governments, though even she didn’t envision a state-driven cult of the literal physical repulsion of every atom from every other atom.
So far the people are submitting completely to a terror campaign dedicated to the total eradication of whatever community was left in the world, and especially whatever community was starting to be rebuilt.
Some dream of this terror campaign somehow bringing about a magical collective transformation. They don’t explain how that is supposed to happen when everyone’s so insanely terrorized they’re desperate to detach physically from their own shadows, let alone physically come together with other people. But any kind of political or social action, any kind of movement-building, requires close person-to-person contact.
It seems that for most erstwhile self-alleged dissidents, the fact that social media is no substitute for face-to-face organizing and group action, a fact hitherto universally acknowledged by these dissidents, is another truth suddenly jettisoned a few weeks ago and replaced by its complete antithesis.
Thus the terror campaign is a virus causing those it infects to abdicate all activism and all prospect for all future activism, for as long as they remain insane with the fever of this propaganda terror.
Far more profoundly and evoking despair, the terror campaign is a virus causing those it infects to fear and loathe all human contact, all companionship, all closeness, all things which ever made us human in the first place. Prior totalitarian regimes sought this lack of contact and trust through networks of informers. These networks are part of today’s terror campaign as well, encouraged from above and spontaneously arising from below as a result of the feeling of terror as well as the exercise of prior petty-evil intentions on the part of petty-evil individuals.
But today’s totalitarian potential is far worse than this. Now the regimes aspiring to total domination have terrorized and brainwashed the vast majority of people into an automatic physical distrust of all other people. One no longer fears that someone is an informer, but fears the very existence of another human being. Any kind of human relations, from personal friendship and romance to friendly social gatherings and clubs to social and cultural movements become impossible under such circumstances. This threatens to be the end of the very concept of shared humanity, to be replaced by an anthill of slave atoms with no consciousness beyond fear and the most animal concern for food and shelter, which already is allowed or denied in the same way experimenters do with lab rats.
And the more people fear and loathe the literal physical existence of all other people, the more the situation becomes ripe for every epidemic of murder, from the already spiking rate of domestic violence and killings to incipient lynch mobs to pogroms to Nazi-style extermination campaigns.
This is the system’s end goal. It’s the logical end where every trend of today leads. All of it is trumped up over an epidemic which objectively is a flu season somewhat rougher than average.
Why do the people want to surrender and throw away all reality and future prospect of shared humanity, happiness, freedom, well-being, over so little? Is this really a terminal totalitarian death cult, the globe as one massive Jonestown?
So far it seems this is what the majority wants. If they don’t really want this consummation of universal death in spirit, emotion and body, they’d better snap out of their terror-induced mental delirium fast, before it’s too late.

Today on Earth Day, today more than ever, today as almost all among the “civilized” have gone clinically insane in response to a government- and media-driven campaign of mass psychological terrorism, today as almost all people have reacted with extreme fear and loathing toward themselves, toward their fellow human beings, toward the Earth itself, today more than ever it is needful to recall the Earth, remember what we are and where we came from, and commune again outdoors where we belong, with others the way we belong.
Spring is blooming, and so far the mass is rejecting it. They’re abdicating such beauty and warmth. They’re abdicating life itself.
The Earth is home. For all our human purposes the Earth is the universe. The Earth is our entire home, and our only home. All social ideas are grounded in this truth. All traditional religions agree upon this as well. Attempts to find the heavens in the “up there” are misreadings. The Bible is unequivocal: The New Jerusalem is supposed to descend to this physical Earth, and heaven is nowhere but upon this Earth. The same is true from every secular point of view. The Earth is where Homo sapiens evolved; humanity evolved in tandem with and as an inextricable part of the Earth; in terms of energy, physiology, and psychology it would be impossible to forsake the Earth even if humanity wanted to (but humanity does not want this; only a handful of subhuman psychopaths claim to want this) ; the Earth is our one and only home.
Among all religions only scientism consistently despises its home and provider the Earth. Thus, in addition to its many other evils and idiocies, scientism constitutes the most extreme and despicable ingratitude. All human beings agree this is the worst of sins and the most ominous of traits.
For the great majority of us home is a particular foodshed. Only a handful of people are born travelers. The vast majority of migrants are those cast adrift by corporate-driven economic coercion, or by the spiritual and cultural homelessness generated by the technocratic civilization. Part of the great and necessary ecological transformation is our return home to the Earth in the most spiritual and practical sense of learning again to be part of our foodsheds. In the end communing with the Earth through our mode of food is the most direct form of our spiritual communion with the Earth and with ourselves as a whole. Only through the Earth can we become human again.
It’s a measure of the decadence of the alienated civilization that Earth Day is cordoned off as a discrete holiday. As if we all don’t live at the complete sufferance of the Earth every moment of our lives. As if all the grand towers and fortresses and mausoleums of our civilization, and all our technological self-deification, don’t exist at every moment in an ICU, hooked up and dependent upon every machine while we simultaneously do all we can to pull all the plugs.
This self-driven campaign, too, is part of the Earth’s kinesis.
The Earth is a fount of great abundance.
Human ingenuity can render this fount even more abundant. Agroecology is the supreme example, the greatest human accomplishment. Nature’s bounty augmented by human thought and labor provide all that humanity needs and all it can sanely want.
The only problem, ever, is human insanity, human depravity which convinces itself it wants more than the abundant Earth ecologically offers. This has always been the source of almost all human evil and destructiveness. This insanity is pure nihilism, pure loathing of the womb and of oneself.
Temporarily aided by the one-off fossil fuel binge, this anti-human loathing of humanity and the Earth has been able to ramify itself in the form of the corporate-technocratic extreme energy civilization. As if their insanity and evil weren’t enough, they even whine that not everyone shows sufficient “gratitude”.
On the contrary, it’s these traitors against Gaia and humanity who incarnate the blackest ingratitude, the most capital treason, against all that this wonderful, beautiful, magical Earth has offered us. If only all people had been willing to live in peace, we all could know peace and happiness.
Ecological history will prevail, and Gaia shall impose the correction she always does in the end. Humanity can participate by building the living ecological movement dedicated to all possible action against the economic civilization, to help Gaia take it down.
We can best live our thanks to Earth by propagating the necessary new ideas and building this movement. This is the great focus of human life for the next two centuries.
On this day of thanksgiving we can thank abundant Earth and consecrate our lives to our gratitude. Earth is the basis of life itself. Only those who choose to march with death deny this.
There’s nothing left but to reclaim the land, build the soil, and fight for life. This is the only positive action left in the terminus of the extreme energy civilization where Politics is Dead.
This action is the expression of thanks, today and every day. This is the way to make every day a thanksgiving, and to prepare a world where humanity finally shall live its great gratitude in faith, every day, in all the peace, prosperity and happiness Earth’s abundance can provide. That’s why I write, in prospective thankfulness for this coming movement and this coming ecological peace.
Western myth begins with the image of a woman with child in the heavens, the Greek wisdom Sophia, fertility and wisdom. We find the great wisdom at the roots of creation. Her child and the Earth come into being simultaneously along with various notions of an evil dragon. This monster often has been mistaken as Sophia’s misguided creation. This depicts the primordial vision of dialectical conflict unto creation.
Human history is the story of the preparation of the Earth for humanity and humanity for the Earth. Before this preparation is complete the Earth must undergo its time of tribulation, first the ravages of the kamikaze campaign of extreme energy consumption, then the unfathomable volatility and turbulence of this era’s collapse and self-immolation, as all the pent up potential, all the physical and spiritual heat and poison this kamikaze civilization has emitted, reaches Kinesis.
The time has reached such an extremity of alienation and confusion that few on Earth can read the signs in history and nature, and so humans have conjured religions to interpret the signs. Few have the vision to recover the lost wisdom of the woman who had to flee into the wilderness. But this wilderness is nothing but the fertile Earth, tending itself and waiting for humanity to end our destructive self-exile and come home to our creative work.
The visions of Sophia spangle the heavens with the sun and moon and stars. We project these from Earth. As the final star descends, the morning star, its light shall gather all other cosmic lights in itself and glorify them as they continue to shine upon Earth.
Light and sight finally shall be liberated here, as we finally understand the mysteries. The new Gaian communion shall prove with light that the only night was in the benighted minds of men. In the new garden there no longer shall be the day vs. night of the mind. The sun and moon and stars shall shine on Earth as before. This shall be the final end of all artificial hate, greed, lusting for power and control, spiritual homelessness. All that’s ecological shall continue the cycle, now fully in harmony, transcending all distinction of natural and artificial, purging all that is anti-ecological and living as one amid the Earth’s now exalted ecology.
Thus the trial of perdition, the final judgement of the fossil-fueled technocratic derangement (veritably a malign ghost, a resurrected fossil of evil, a summoned demon), shall be complete, the mystery shall be solved, and from there all which is, was, and is to become, shall become, and shall be, and shall become forever more. The tree of life cycles forever through the twelve seasons, bearing its twelve fruits, and all human stewardship of Earth shall fruit in harmony. The water of life is a river which flows forever. As Greek wisdom has it no one may step twice into the same stream and yet it remains always the same stream.
The great vision comes of the air at break of new day, and all creation sings its new song for the new garden. There still must come tribulation from the air. The air of the day must gather and pressurize the power of the heated winds, heated by the oily bonfires of Babylon. When they shall be loosed, as the fossilized technocratic empire loses control, the Kinesis will rage while the vision of the temples and arks range the sky forecasting the flesh and blood of the new garden which shall sprout. This is the word from air to earth and sea. But there is a tiding of the thunders which shall remain untranslated until the final germination of the garden, whence this too shall resolve to a rainbow.
Fire is the great inspiration, fire is the great symbol of tribulation raging as wildfire across the visions, fire is the destructive force Babylon’s bonfires unleash to scourge the world as the empire loses control. Fire shall consume Babylon itself. Fire is the symbol of the ultimate sundering of those who refuse the last call to come home. But as the new garden will flower upon this Earth, so all of hell has been on this Earth and shall continue in the voids within the self-damned. Thus the ultimate fire has been in the minds of men, their raging violence, and so the future lake of fire shall be the soggy ashes in the dead souls of those who refused.
The creative fire is the newly transformed light of the new garden. Earth has been cradle and romping ground and home for mind, and now shall resume as home for the soul.
The river of life leads the song now sung by all the creatures of creation. The river shall flow forever through the new garden, and throughout the new heaven and Earth. The ocean, primal residue on Earth of the primordial waters before life itself, shall be resumed into these waters. The river still flows on Earth, still flows to the seas that girdle the Earth. All soon shall be cleansed and purified to become as holy water, suffusing Earth as rain and river and sea. These shall bless our crops forever bounteous, shall redeem and restore the ecology of Earth, Garden of Eden, Gaia.
But first the age must undergo a great tribulation of water. Babylon sprawls upon many waters and its crimes and poisons surge forth. It shall be destroyed by literal and spiritual tsunami. Humanity must rise up to abolish the poisons and poisoners. The great ecological preparation requires this affirmative act of agency, and Earth shall not forgive the passive.
And so humanity and Earth meld, as artist and material, material and artist, to establish the new heaven and new Earth on this very soil. This is the consummation of creation, its transformation. This is the revolution and restoration and renaissance. Humanity and Earth plant the tree of life in this very soil, and secure the trellis of the new garden upon this very rock, the rock of Earth beloved unto all time by all human gods, and our home of humanity unto all time.
The only gods are the gods of the Earth. And let it be blasphemy and the mark of evil to say this sacred rock is not home, and that “we”, meaning a handful of mean and stupid boot-lickers and slave-drivers, still seek a new home somewhere beyond this earth.
Humanity has a mission throughout this trial. We must work to prepare the Earth and to start planting our new garden. This is our part in the transformation of creation. We must liberate the Earth, for this is preparation and transformation. We who are called to this mission must work and endure in harmony Earth’s power and the human will transmuted to Gaia’s will which shall bring us through to victory.
Paradise is of this Earth. It now shall be established in the flesh and stone and spirit of the true community, the Ecotrinity of Gaia and Humanity and Earth. We will finally know how to use mind and soul in harmony to work amid Gaia’s ecology in harmony. The greatest sin was to embrace the primal sundering, the alienation, the exile. This is what Jesus called the sin against the Holy Spirit. This is the sin that cannot be forgiven because only a willfully sundered soul, in all its deluded depravity, can forbid itself to repent, forgive itself and come home. These who willingly bear the mark of the beast refuse to do so, and so cannot return, and must try to prevent all return by force. This is their main political, economic, ideological, and anti-ecological campaign today.
Paradise is of this earth. The Ecotrinity, and the ecological state of mind and soul which accompanies it, is the great and rising idea and spirit at this climax and tribulation of the modern fossil-fueled, corporate demon-ridden, propaganda-exhorted derangement. The false idea of “man vs. nature” is dead and dying, and the false “dominionist” religion, in both its traditional and secular forms, dies with it.
The tree of life shall extend its redemptive roots throughout the soil of the newly conceived Earth. Its twelve seasons of fruit shall symbolize the great prosperity of humanity and Earth in the new day. The waters of the river of life shall suffuse all the springs and rains and flows and deep blue seas of the new Earth. Our children and crops and all the plants and animals shall drink of these holy waters.
According to Christian scripture the new garden shall not contain a temple, for all Earth shall be a temple. And finally we shall understand what it means to say our bodies are temples. Finally we shall resume living as temples, no longer as coffins. And what we build shall be the bowers and wreaths of these temples, no longer tombs.
We shall resume our true heritage as our spirit spreads from the new garden’s model point of light to embrace and combine with the light of the entire Earth. That’s the great promise and goal we aspire to on Earth Day. It commands us to make every day Earth Day, and then for this great aspiration simply to be the living work of each and every day.
This is the living movement humanity must build. The Earth is calling us home.

Double Down, or Free Ourselves


The reaction to the Corona pest, a product of the economic civilization, is becoming a great escalation of the psychological pandemic native to this economy.
The great cultural trend of modernity has been to atomize and isolate human beings. Through economic and political processes they are driven to lose all reality of community and solidarity. Through the physical and cultural fact of being gathered into great masses they lose all grounding and are forced to float without anchor amid a featureless sea. Through indoctrination into ideologies of Mammon, productionism and liberal individualism they are induced to see this atomization and universal faithlessness as the god-given way of the world, if not a positive good.
Today we reach a milestone on this road toward maximum isolation, as the fear-mongering campaigns of governments and media urge or order people to isolate themselves physically as much as possible. Even inside a house the inhabitants should stick to separate rooms.
Reasonable prudence is one thing, and obviously people should avoid mass gatherings. As much as possible we should avoid needless indoor assembly. That includes almost all “jobs”, but then humans always should have avoided being shackled to that system. So the pest changes nothing there in principle, it only gives a special impetus. Those who never cared about psychological and spiritual disease finally show signs of taking some action against the fear of physical disease.
But beyond this the call to hunker in a personal bunker, a physical and psychological state close to hunkering in a bomb shelter because you fear the missiles are flying, is a great escalation of the whole trend toward isolation, atomization, dehumanization.
Contrary to the evolution denial of the whole modern ideology of spiritual atomism, humans evolved over millions of years to live in small, tight-knit communities where each is responsible for all and dependent upon all. This never changed during the period of the dominion of modern economy. On the contrary, the modern campaign of spiritual genocide seeking to eradicate all human communities and replace them with a vast technocratic bureaucracy ruling over a vast mass of atoms has generated a universal pandemic of psychological and spiritual dislocation, confusion, distraction, despair, psychopathy.
Today more than ever, as the diverse crises converge toward a great pivot, combine their amplitudes toward the great Kinesis, today more than ever it is critical that we come together to rebuild our communities. The way things are going we may need to put our energies into projects for weathering the storm, extreme adaptation. So be it, this combines the necessary practical action with the necessary renewal of community.
Most critically at such a moment, we need to see one another and mutually affirm that we’re not going to be terrorized into hiding from one another. We’re not going to react to this acute crisis of the economic civilization by self-reinforcing the atomized isolation this civilization always has worked to instill in us as second nature, as anti-nature.
For me personally, my main social activity is to go out on group hikes. I do that several times a week. I’ll be going out again twice this weekend. I’ll keep getting together for as long as others are getting together. These aren’t people I know well from anyplace else in life, they’re casual friends and acquaintances I’ve met and gotten to know through our shared love of hiking. This shared love for the outdoors, including for many of us the wish to relearn so much about nature, knowledge the modern society has worked hard to eradicate in us, could be a seed for a more resilient, self-sufficient, organic and human community. If nothing else it’s still a shared will to continue to live and to enjoy living, and to share this enjoyment in spite of the paranoia against all such sharing which the system is working to instill in everyone.
Don’t give in to it. The needful mindset and action remain the same as they always were: Resist the system as much as possible, work to rebuild our human communities, sustain a healthy mind and soul.

The Dominion Cycle and A Possible End


Going by the evidence the humans of the economic civilization are committed to their omnicidal-suicidal binge of consuming and destroying all it can of the Earth. Like Hitler they never will make peace but will hunker in the bunker unto the inevitable apocalyptic end, destroying as much as they can in the process out of pure nihilism.
(It’s a proven fact by now that civilization has no affirmative goals, only negative ones. The best proof is how every possible value – ecological harmony, human well-being, health, community, freedom, happiness, just to name some of the most cherished values – have been fully consumed by Mammon’s maw and become demented caricatures of themselves. As I’ve often said, the single most insane idea in the history of the globe has been that it’s a good idea to put poison on one’s own food, in one’s own water. This is physically true, and it’s symbolically true of everything else which possibly could have been good in this world. Modern civilization chose capitalism as its mode of mustering, organizing, maximizing everything that’s bad and evil in the world and destroying all that’s good: Destroying it either directly and absolutely, or through co-option, corruption, caricature.)
There seems to be no way out of this predicament. All the evidence lines up to forecast that civilized humanity will do its ultimate worst as long as they can until Gaia forcibly stops them. How did humanity get into this predicament?
On the surface it seems the odyssey began with the hominid brain which evolved to become clever with tools and the body equipped with appendages uniquely suited to manipulating tools. (It’s impossible to answer chicken-and-egg questions about the development of the neurosystem, the hands, and the facility with tools; how “accidental” as opposed to “teleological” such development was. The best anyone can say is that these mutually reinforced one another.)
Then evolution selected for linguistic capacity, perhaps for the rudiments of culture. (Again we can’t know to what extent cave painters were “self-conscious” or “unconscious” artists, except that here too there must have been a mutually reinforcing development.)
At any rate self-conscious human sentience must have developed first as a side-effect of these practical developments, an evolutionary fluke. (Unless one wants to posit a Creator God, or what’s the same thing extraterrestrial tutors, sowing sentience, “educating” us to it.) Then this fluke messed with the practical wiring, became inflamed and bloated, and convinced itself that it was the real driver of the brain. No one knows what genome processes (informally and fake-formally called “genes”) combine to form this self-consciousness. Reg Morrison developed a descriptive theory of this brain inflammation and its characteristic extremism in his book Spirit in the Gene.
This self-consciousness often has been pegged as the “original sin”, the point at which hominids started to become sundered from their environment. (Sundered in mind and destructive action; of course it’s impossible for any animal really to separate from the ecology, in spite of all the de jure (Dominion, Heaven, Rapture) and de facto (scientism, technocracy, eugenics, space colonization) religious fantasies about doing so. The only reality-sunder the mind-sundered humans can perform is to destroy their ecological basis and thus commit collective suicide.)
This self-consciousness is difficult to assess since we lack good ways to understand the sentience of other animals and plants, whether these have any affinity with ours as well. Except for fellow primates and cephalopods, as a rule other animals lack the type of versatile appendages that could actually use the tools, even if they’re otherwise capable of conceiving them. Someone once wrote of the paradox of thinking about a “Raphael who was born without hands”.
And then what about the ancient Greeks and Romans, for example, who were aware of how to burn fossil fuels, conceived how to use this for steam engines and had the hands to actually do it, yet chose not to, at any rate failed to do so.
That example seems to prove that it wasn’t necessarily sentience in itself which enforced the radical Sunder, but that the fanatical expression of the “spirit in the gene” also had to undergo considerable development, mutually reinforcing through its fixation on Sumerian-Judeo-Christian-scientistic Dominion theology, and through the mutual development of Dominion thought, especially in Christianity, and technological development, culminating in modern scientism, technocracy, “Progress” theology. Cf. David Noble’s The Religion of Technology for the history of techno-fetishism on through modern scientism as a thread of Christian Dominion theology.
So there’s one incomplete* description of the human trap. How to get out of it? It’s impossible consciously to “engineer” a way out; this route can only double down on the pathology. All alleged solutions which remain entangled with the framework of the economic civilization, from de jure denialism’s advocacy of Business as Usual, escalating the Status Quo (Keep Shopping), to the climate-industrial movement’s utopia of green capitalism, Green New Deals, green cancer aka “growth” (IOW Business as Usual, escalate the Status Quo, Keep Shopping, just do it the fake-“Green” way), are no solutions at all, just expressions of the inflamed brain’s destructive and self-destructive fanaticism.
It seems there’s no way out of the trap which presupposes continued exaltation of the trap. Here’s an analogy I’ve found helpful: It’s long been clear that no Western intervention in the Global South is anything but destructive. Even the rare cases where sincere good intentions go into it, invariably it has an ulterior motive which overrides whatever was sincere going into the intervention. This was true of the “Green Revolution”, it’s been true of each and every war of aggression under the rubric of “humanitarian intervention”, it’s been true of every activity of the likes of USAID and the Peace Corps, and of every Western Big NGO and professional campaign such as Western botanists and others who loot as biopirates, anthropologists who slander and steal.
Based on this unbroken evidence record, it’s clear that the one and only thing the West can do to help the South is to Get Out. Completely.
In the same way, probably the best humanity (or, to be realistic, whatever small handfuls of humans care about anything but destruction and self-destruction) can do is to end its industrial and technological interventions and learn to live as a value in itself (the way all other creatures live) rather than to pursue the pipebomb-dreams conjured up the Dominion-obsessed inflamed brain.
Certainly modern civilization as a whole never will do this. Only the Earth itself will impose it by force.
And afterward, assuming humans have survived at all, they’ll have another chance to rebuild a communal life. The best we can say about the future prospects for subduing the inflamed brain is that at least the physical stimulants – the massive easy upfront capital in the form of deep lush soils, easy-to-tap oil gushers and huge mineral hunks just lying around – no longer exist. Anyone who wants still to dig for them will have to work very hard for very little gain. That physical fact finally may subdue the inflammation and bring an end to the Dominionist cycle.
*This piece discusses the phenomenon of human self-consciousness and its theoretical genetic root. There’s another realm of significance which needs to be included in order to have an integrated theory. This is the endosymbiotic origin of neural cells, the fact that like all other animals humans form a symbiotic organism with internal bacteria (the microbiome), and that there’s a particular faction of bacteria which especially are advantaged by human industrial actions. These – the botulins, salmonella and others advantaged by the massive deployment of pesticides, factory farms and similar practices, antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria, Agrobacterium tumefaciens used in most genetic engineering – are by now in a mutually reinforcing process with human extremist action. Looking at it from an evolutionary point of view one can’t separate humans-using-them from them-using-humans.

US War Against Iran in the Dominion of Production


As I write there’s little but confusion on whether Iran launched a bona fide strike on a US base in Irak or whether this was a pantomime meant to let both sides save face and remain within the realm of fakeness. Contrary to Trump’s lies about US early warning systems, the US was tipped off ahead of time and was able to move its personnel and any important equipment. The question seems to be whether Iran informed only the Iraki prime minister who then treacherously tipped off the Americans, or whether Iran itself tipped off the Americans through the Swiss.
Especially if the latter, this only delays the inevitable reckoning with reality. That would be typical behavior of the berserker leadership, in spite of the reality of the psychological impacts on the masses of the Mideast and the West. Ultimately the biological force of the masses will force reality upon the nations, however much their berserker leadership classes dig ever deeper into their delusions.
(This fakeness has much in common with the climate-industrial movement and corporate environmentalism in general. These are committed to a fake pantomime of caring and action while always reassuring the economic civilization that it can continue the binge, that there is no reality beyond this binge being necessary, sustainable and desirable.)
This Potemkin exercise, if that’s what it was, looks unimpressive. It’s not remotely “proportional” to US crimes. The Iranian people and Shiites everywhere will take this as an insult unless the leadership assures them this is only the beginning.
In the meantime we’d be left where we started in the world of fakeness. This house of mirrors is the US home terrain, the fake world of dollars and Dominion mirages, Mammon and media. The system depends upon these mirrors for its entire position. The domineering dollar is only the beginning of it. Anyone who thinks they’re going to win by out-faking the arch-faker is likely to be disappointed.
The prospect that in the minds of the respective leaders this is Phony War doesn’t change the reality of the psychological whip-sawing the American masses must be undergoing, from day to day being summoned by the media to constant Two Minute Hates, then an actual beginning to war, then “All is well!” and a toning down of the alarmism, then more fatuous boasting from Trump, and then what next?
Regardless of what the berserkers at the helm think they’re doing, however fake or not the action and/or the spin on the action may be, the psychological effect on the masses is real. One thing the drivers definitely are doing is scorching all earth where any kind of sane mass psychology could try to build itself.
So whether or not the real war toward WWIII has just de jure commenced (and it may take some hours or days before that becomes clear), this is a milestone along the ongoing vector of mass insanity in the US and its poodles. The Australian conflagration is a similar milestone for that country. But for the full baptism in the flame of Earth chaos each region will need and get its own specific tribulation.
Meanwhile another effect which shall be real enough if it holds is the report that several global tanker operators have suspended traversing the Straits of Hormuz out of war fears. There’s reports of leaps in oil prices. Anything can cause a sudden shortage of the fossil blood of the civilization.
The media were for many hours at a loss for a strong or even coherent line because they’re so used to the US system “creating its own [fake-news] reality” that when something at least seemingly real and adverse actually happens they have no idea what to think or say. (In the same way, the Australian fireland is real for the Australians just as the increasing direfires are real for the regions, but remain abstract or entertainment or propaganda for most in the West.)
The Soleimani hit is real for the Iranians and Irakis but for the US has been another fake-propaganda opportunity. Only now has something happened that may become real for America, though for the moment it too is suspended in circusland.
They’ve all been waiting for the government to give them their cue, ironically waiting with bated breath for Trump to speak, the same Trump they’ve been demonizing and disparaging for three years. But it’s likely the berserker leadership are equally confused.
When Trump finally showed his wig he did nothing but repeat the same moronic bluster. At the moment things remain in suspense.
We temporarily have a lull, but this is only a brief postponement. We shall use the respite to place this in context of the oncology of the economic civilization, its core rampage. Productionism is supply-driven economic production for the sake of production, growth for the sake of growth. This essence of cancer is the core process of the economic civilization. The global economic action of this ant colony is biologically analogous to metastatic cancer at the cellular level. Individual drivers and cadres among the orcs should be seen metaphorically as virulent cancer cells.
Earth’s tumor needs to wage permanent war on both fronts: It must wrest the raw materials from the Earth at the expense of ecocide including the socioeconomic, cultural and often physical destruction of the peoples cursed to live above or amid these “resources”; it must dump the waste and consumer products on the Earth including on the masses who are subject to indoctrination, propaganda and coercion (economic, cultural, physical) in order to induce them to tolerate the destruction and waste of the production process and to “want” or “need” to receive these products.
At any time only a few kamikazes are at the control of the death machine, while the rank and file masses sprawling the surface of the globe, including most governments, are the more or less conscripted followers whose opinions on the matter mean nothing since they’re given no choice but to follow. These are the secondary berserkers.
Iran maneuvers and perhaps takes action on behalf of the secondary berserkers, those conscripted into energy colonialism as raw material production zones, as ecological and religious sacrifice zones of destruction, as dumping grounds for toxic waste and other consumer products. The war being waged by the US and its lackeys is to suppress the escalated protest of the world against the primary berserkers, those driving the whole death machine, led by the US corporate state.
Both groups are kamikazes, both are addicts on the supply side – they’ve submitted their economies to it; even most of the geographical US is a resource colony – and on the demand/consumption side – this also is economic as well as cultural-psychological dependency. But the secondaries including the 99% among Western peoples have rising resentment, rising cognitive dissonance, rising tension between their fake-want-need and their real needs and wants, and how they resent being forced into addiction to fake needs, their rising sense of how this is forced upon them.
