Let Your Life Be a Friction to Stop the Machine

Nightmare and insanity are akin: mysterious and involuntary states that skew and distort objective reality. One wakens from nightmare; from insanity there is no awakening.

Whether Americans live in the one state or the other is the paramount question of this era.

For two hundred years Americans have been indoctrinated with a mythology created, imposed and sustained by a manipulating cabal: the financial elite that built its absolute control on the muscle and blood, good will, ignorance and credulity, of its citizenry.

America began with the invasion of a populated continent and the genocide of its native people. Once solidly established, it grafted enslavement of another race onto that base.

With those two pillars of state firmly in place it declared itself an independent nation in a document that nobly proclaimed the equality of all mankind.

In that act of monumental hypocrisy America's myth had its beginning.

...

To attempt to break the hold of the American Myth will be a titanic, daunting challenge. To even begin to openly rebel against the might of the National Security State will require the courage to face much more than official disapproval and denunciation. Imperial America will not respond to even the most peaceful and orderly protest with anything less than hard police repression and the level of punishment will rise in relation to the scope and seriousness of the action undertaken.

Small protests will have no effect and will be meaningless. Organized mass events, when they occur, will draw the whole fiercely and brutally motivated National Security State apparatus down upon themselves. Americans, excepting those of our underclass who have felt it, have no experience with violent police or military repression. Those who commit peaceful civil disobedience -- a first and innocent tactic of serious protest -- will swiftly find out to their cost how it works. In a National Security State that has excised and eradicated all defensive laws and regulations intended to prevent abuse of the public, whatever the State does is legal. To such a pass have we in America come as a result of our long historic indoctrination in serving our financial elite, our Ruling Class.

To achieve any redemption for Americans, to make possible any more just, humane and life-honoring society, will require complete abandonment of the system of Predatory Capitalism. If offers no prospect of reform or improvement and we have all been witness to the idiocy of the so-called "democratic process" in action for generations now.

America is nearing the greatest crisis point in its history and the terrific cataclysm, when it happens, will determine the future our country is to have. If we cannot, in dominating numbers, rise to reject the heartless, mindless, soul-less machine of Imperial Predatory Capitalism, we will be condemned to a fascistic command and control horror in which human beings are mere possessions of the State, units of production or service, and then perhaps not even that, as excess population in that brave, new world nay be eliminated.

That end is not inevitable. We are not lost. We are not even defeated because to this moment we have not engaged. We have not honored our responsibility as human beings. We have not risen to defend our humanity. We have let ourselves be ruled.

All around the world the thunder of vast and immeasurable discontent can be heard and felt. In Egypt and Spain, Jordan and Greece, Iraq and Sudan, Afghanistan and Ireland, Latin America, the Far East and Africa, the legitimate anger of humanity is expressing itself against the dead and killing hand of Predatory Capitalism and its agencies of violence. And here, in America, so long trapped and encapsulated, frozen like a fly in amber in a false religion of state idolatry, the anger is deep, widespread, and growing.

It is up to those who know and care to lead. As Thomas Paine said, "These are the times that try men's souls." Nothing is guaranteed us. That can't matter. We cannot be concerned with odds or outcomes. We cannot let the Machine of Injustice grind on. We must oppose it with all the moral force we own. We must act with quiet courage to confront a vicious tyrannical system that is destroying the earth, its life, and its people. We must put our lives on the line to oppose it.

The Nightmare Machine of rapacious exploitation has overthrown humanity's decency and reason and its bloody inhuman treason flourishes over us. This must be ended.

Let your life be a friction now to stop the Machine.

Good post, nucleus. Thanks.

Nice report, but who allowed the army drill sergeant to beat us up for allowing to happen something most of us could not prevent? With a little forethought regarding the audience, film didn't wouldn't be so off-putting and it might do more good. As it is, it is a screed. Good luck.

Personal responsibility. Try it some time.

Does anybody really click on these honey-pot links?

Does anybody care that the NSA/CIA just wants to track people?

Do people really watch this talking head TV shit?

owsleader2013, what is it like to be utterly devoid of intelligence?

[-] -2 points by owsleader2013 (-1) 2 years ago

What is it with this TV shit? If you have something to say then say it, .... but cutting and pasting drivel, and pasting links to TV channel for youtube buffonery, ... for what? Grow up.

If you have something to say, then say it.


Let's talk about MYTHOLOGY, yes the entire USA is just one big mythological lie, not one thing in the USA is true all the way from public-school to public-prison, ... its all one big fucking lie.

So exactly what are you going to do change the Titanic?

When you have a nation of 300 million liars, all fed 18,000 hours of TV, what the fuck can you do?

The rest of the world has a plan, contain and corral the US masses in their prison of their own making.

What a bunch of bull shit. Never tired of it are you?

[-] -2 points by owsleader2013 (-1) 2 years ago

The official BOT of OWS has made its generic response based on Pavlovian programming by thrassy.

What triggered you? "mythology"? "300 million liars"

The USA is a nation of mushrooms, people fed shit and kept in the dark, and OWS is just the tip of the iceberg of such shit.

Well gotta give a jerk credit for trying. Right? Dogged determination. A can do attitude.

Probably not good points in this situation though. Huh?

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 2 years ago

LOL. I wouldn't give this prick a damn thing. No credit for trying. Worst incarnation yet.

Next time maybe it will come back as a cockroach.

Isn't it already?

Could be, could be. Still kind of impressive then.

I mean imagine jumping hard enough on all those keys just to get out a word let alone a sentence.

I'm impressed.

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 2 years ago

That is a feat. Small that it is.

[+] -5 points by DKAtoday (28151) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Must be a pain running and hiding when someone turns on the light.

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 2 years ago

Oh, jeeze ........it's probably like that scene from that movie. I can't remember the name of it. The guy falls on the floor and a gazillion cockroaches come out. That's him and co.
