Flimsy Sanity: How We Won the Battle and Lost the War

Flimsy Sanity

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. - Friedrich Nietzsche

How We Won the Battle and Lost the War

As a youth, I was taught the evils of Communism and how bleak life was behind the iron curtain - a monochromatic grey of existence without pleasure. We were told it was hard to do business and get ahead socially or economically if one wasn’t in the communist party in the Soviet Union. Surveillance was prevalent and the German Stasi enlisted citizens to spy on each other. The media was just government propaganda. Organized crime flourished. Military spending used up a massive proportion of taxes. Government officials lived in luxury. Fixed elections and fear and distrust made a whole country paranoid.

Our terrorism curtain mirrors the Soviet Union in nearly every aspect, although corporatocracy rules with two political parties to serve it. So many things are so wrong with America today: the US energy policy designed by corporations; seeds and pig genes owned by Agri-business corporations; corporations running the prison systems and an insane, racist drug industry to supply full occupancy; small sardine businesses trying to compete with whale size corps; corporate profiteering from continuous wars. Democracy died with hardly a whimper and people look the other way because individuals can also make a little stock money from slave wages and famines and participate in the sin.

See you at the camps if our socially criminal system doesn't collapse first.
