Exposé: Free Market - a Service to Neo-Aristocracy - as Intended

“The trade of the petty usurer is hated with most reason: it makes a profit from currency itself, instead of making it from the process which currency was meant to serve. Their common characteristic is obviously their sordid avarice.” - Aristotle

If the most despicable liar that the world has ever known should speak the truth, the truth is not altered by that speech. The truth is the truth. Not even a Republican can alter the truth. But they can choose the parts of it that shall be revealed and the parts that shall be hidden. Thereby they can rationalize and otherwise make the case for their greed. That’s how to lie by speaking only the truth

      Beside the dissembling and lies of omission by conservatives, consider the violent repression of the left beginning with Kennedy, King, Evers, X and other assassinations. Add to those the ‘68 Chicago convention and the May 4, 1970 Kent State Massacre. Don’t forget May 14, 1970 in Jackson, Mississippi. Then there’s the Chicago School Shock Therapy, promoted violently on September 11, 1973 by Pinochet in Chile. The Argentine junta and the imposition of Milton Friedman’s neoliberal free trade1 [World Trade] on the rest of the Southern Cone of South America also took place in the late ‘60s and 1970s. Is the anti neoliberal attack on the World Trade Center, on 9/11/01, partly a reaction to the shock therapy of state terror in Latin America and elsewhere around the globe?

1 - “Milton Friedman . . . the father of Neoliberalism” - Naomi Klein, The Shock Doctrine

      The WTC attack certainly shocked the American People and abetted the tightening of corporatist surveillance, supervision and control here. By reducing our minds to a state of fearful malleability it allowed the creation and reinforcement of support for the ruling elite’s neo aristocratic establishment. Did the terrorists intend to make US suffer at home the pain inflicted on peoples around the world by the neo liberal global corporate empire? Increased concentration of wealth and lowering of living standards for most of US has occurred since 911. The losses of the many are partly as a consequence of common funds diverted to mercenary forces and other government contractors involved in the war on terror. Did the real beneficiaries of 911 put the Saudi terrorists up to it, in order to create the state of mind in America that would allow the furtherance of the pyramid scam concentration wealth that’s taken place in the past six years?
      The result of the imposition of Friedman’s economic shock therapy and neoliberal theory has been the further concentration of wealth among the rich and the few sellouts that minister to them. This has been effected by deregulation, low taxes for the rich, privatization and free trade of our livelihoods to maximize their profits. That is the design of the neoliberal formula. It creates increased poverty and debt for the rest of US. It is obvious that for most of US our living standards have declined. Milton and Nixon and Pinochet and Kissinger and Reagan and Greenspan and Becker and Bush and Clinton and Bush and Bernanke . . . all of them are [active or passive ] supporters of neoliberal state terror. Their intention has been to recreate themselves as neo aristocrats. The cumulative effect of their greed is pain and suffering for the majority.
      Stalwart support of neoliberal neo aristocracy is gained by creating the illusion of opportunity. That is: the marks are fooled and stay fooled. The fact that such a small percentage of the population can succeed - and as wealth is concentrated zero sum reality indicates that fraction must grow ever smaller - is hidden partly by blaming the victims for our failure. We’re told that, if we were competent and persevered like they do, we too could have what they have. I suspect that the perpetrators believe that propaganda of vanity and conceit. They don’t understand that because they have hoarded the produce of the community [note that it’s not the product of their own hard work that they have] there’s not enough left for US to have a fair share. But they’ll tell you that all you need is an education and if you don’t have it, that’s your own fault. They ignore the truth. Like more than average wealth is limited, there are not enough college classrooms or middle class professional jobs for everyone even if they hadn’t deliberately sabotaged your elementary and high school educations. And the competition for what does exist is not played fairly.
      Instead of encouraging them, the system deliberately tries to daunt the majority of students in order to make them stupid and feel responsible for their failure to achieve the American Dream. That’s how the education system has been made to serve the rich. The Manchurian Candidate teachers, who came through the system, don’t even know they’ve been trained to hobble most students by stressing the competitive nature of learning. They do it with tests and grades. [Not to be boasting but to forestall specious accusations of jealousy, my college GPA is 3.5/4.0.] Make it now or you're doomed to poverty like your parents before you. But they don’t tell it like it is. They say we all have equal opportunity. Only fools believe the unscrupulous lies that serve the perpetuation of evil that is the status quo.
      Only three percent of students in college are there because of affirmative action. 74% are there because their parents have the money to send them. No one’s discussing class but 15% of the students don’t have the grades or SATs, yet they still occupy space in and receive degrees from prestigious schools. [See Dubya’s Harvard MBA, after he was refused admission to graduate school in Texas.] Their families have donated money or property. These white kids aren’t mentioned by those who oppose affirmative action. Peter Schmidt on Book TV did say this and further that the battle against affirmative action will reinforce the [what looks to me like a defacto caste] system determined by birth [and perpetuated by the corruption of democracy and opportunity]. - Color and Money: How Rich White Kids are Winning the War Over College Affirmative Action, by Peter Schmidt

      Patricia acknowledged that greed is the source of the sub prime problem. When I generalized and said that service economy, outsourcing and the profit of greedy investors were also dissipative, she countered and diverted the blame to unions with a patronizing walk down the path. “If you have a choice between a $9 chair and a $900 . . . ” Putting aside the too typical exaggeration employed universally by the bourgeoisie and their masters, I said that the most unnecessary part of the cost of any product was the investor’s profit. She said she was an investor. I tried to explain that economy is a common endeavor but she wasn’t listening. So I repeated the truth that no sellout will hear as well as asking her to imagine a world in which everyone is an investor. Then I went on to talk about the dissipative nature of profit that detracts from the incomes of consumers and that an economy that works for less than one in five doesn’t work. As to be expected with selfish, puerile, middle class fools, she didn’t hear that either.
      Why is Friedman’s “freedom of choice” the touchstone and why is it false? Because it’s not the operative freedom in the “free market” economy, to answer out of order. That would be the freedom of the rich and the sellouts who minister to them to have all the money and property. That assertion is evidenced by the outcomes and especially the slope of the economic “regression” of our “game” for the past 39 years. But it’s the specious convenience of such lies that makes them so popular. The delusion is reinforced by massaging, deleting and otherwise “managing” economic data and statistics.2 Then they repeat the neoliberal free market theory that the honest evidence and truth would refute. Don’t bother to confront them. If they know the truth about who and what they really are there’s not enough sincerity or honesty in them to acknowledge it. Denial, whether to self or to US, is the nature of conservatism.

2 - See Reagan’s “reform” of the consumer price index and labor statistics.

      It’s like the excuse, “There’s too much money to be made.” that the spoiled child’s dad used to explain why anyone is willing to work in underground coal mines and especially why the owners require unconscionably dangerous retreat mining. To him the actual miners who ruin their health and die in the mines are not the point at all. It’s just a curiosity to him that they “choose” to do it. They’re hardly noticed; their well being is a burden that must be minimized for the sake of profit. They’re as little heeded as the tortured, dead and disappeared of the Southern Cone, who had to suffer to implement Friedman’s economic shock therapy. The object of both are to concentrate wealth in the target economy and with the global corporate investors who promote the evil. In the end, the sellouts will rationalize anything that suits themselves and their masters, with any lie, diversion or distraction that’s been devised by the sellout intelligentsia among them. Of course the reason the same themes and even exact words are repeated so often is that intelligence is so rare among the rich parasites and the middle class sellouts who minister to them. They’re selected by their masters for their malleability. The masters themselves are as subtle as junk yard dogs in the acquisition and defense of their wealth.
Sinking Currency, Sinking Country, By Patrick J. Buchanan

      The sub-prime collapse is spreading to Europe and Asia. Then the FED lowers the prime rate to stimulate the economy and pretends this extenuation of the pyramid scheme of usury by creating money in our name that may be loaned to US at a profit is for our benefit. Liar! Hypocrite! Parasite! Fool! Scum bag!

      “. . . Faced by failure of credit they have proposed only the lending of more money. . . . They know only the rules of a generation of self-seekers. They have no vision, and when there is no vision the people perish. . . .
      “. . . there must be a strict supervision of all banking and credits and investments, so that there will be an end to speculation with other people's money; and there must be provision for an adequate but sound currency. . . .” - Franklin D. Roosevelt - First Inaugural Address (March 4, 1933)
      In the speeches of FDR that I’ve so far read, he didn’t allow free trade and capitalistic dogma and propaganda to overrule common sense. In fact he emphasized the common dependence, reality and purpose of community. He understood the reality of the pain and suffering caused by the insistence that means and property serve the rich owners even while the workers whose labor actually produces the wealth are deprived and/or impoverished.
      “. . . Yet our distress comes from no failure of substance. We are stricken by no plague of locusts. Compared with the perils which our forefathers conquered because they believed and were not afraid, we have still much to be thankful for. Nature still offers her bounty and human efforts have multiplied it. Plenty is at our doorstep, but a generous use of it languishes in the very sight of the supply. Primarily this is because rulers of the exchange of mankind's goods have failed through their own stubbornness [of greed] and their own incompetence, have admitted their failure, and have abdicated. Practices of the unscrupulous money changers stand indicted in the court of public opinion, rejected by the hearts and minds of men. . . .” - Franklin D. Roosevelt: March 4, 1933
      Today they want market forces to work it out. They fail to note that market forces have worked it out in the only way that anyone but con artists and their fools would expect it to work out. The rich investors and a shrinking percentage of sellouts who minister to them are prospering. The rest of US work more hours and jobs for less money and grow deeper in debt and poverty. Prices increase while qualities and values of merchandise and property decrease. The dollar falls and the ability to buy the imported goods, which cause the trade deficit, decrease. And we no longer even have the ability to make goods to export to get our money back. We no longer even have the knowledge, much less the manufacturing plant, required to produce the goods we need to live. And the moron in chief says we aren’t educating enough scientists and engineers. That’s because the moron in chief and his antecedents issued visas to foreign graduates in order to drive down compensation to technical professionals and thereby increase the profits of investors. Our students studied business and economics, the non productive services, where all the money is.

      In order to have trade we must have goods to trade. If no one makes goods, there’s nothing to exchange. Investors don’t care where goods are made or how they move. Investors only desire to profit by the movement of the goods, which are made and moved by others. Investors don’t care. However, zero sum criteria and the reality that they dictate do care. And forget those intangible values that Milton Friedman conned you with. They really are imaginary. They are not a real part of the equation. There is no substantial win-win in the real world. The flow of goods must be two way for the balance to exist. That balance is necessary for a non dissipative [sustainable] economy. In order for the flow of goods to be two way, goods must be made at both terminals of trade. That reality is obvious and obviously extended to any number of participating terminals. That is, no matter how complex the trading system, if you wish to participate you must produce goods to trade. Of course we could acquire goods by force from another but that sort of dissipative activity has always been “corrected” in the end. Imagine a world with all raiders or investor/aristocrats and no workers or slaves to make material things.
      A service economy trades the goods of others that it does not create. One way flows, [non productive activities that none the less consume real goods] no matter how well obscured or camouflaged, must exist in support of those who live by service. Trade services bring goods into the country. Lately, because outsourcing means we make no goods to trade, the traders must send jobs and the ability to produce material out of the country. Rich investor/aristocrats and their minions profit, while the rest of US are deprived, even nonsensically, to the point that we can’t buy the goods on which the profits are made. The pyramid scam of finance and trade are self destructive. They will destroy the economy they dominate with their evil greed. They’re a threat to our survival. And the morons who dreamed up the scam don’t have a clue. That includes Becker, Greenspan and Bernanke among the living and the crossed over Milton Friedman. Maybe they’re idiot savants. They’re certainly monsters. Our self destructive economy, abominably created to further enrich the [neo] aristocracy, is the monstrous truth that we must face if we’re to survive their greed.

      The object of the engineer or scientist is to seek and show the truth, even when it does not fit their theories or they don’t like it. They must be faithful to the truth even if it’s embarrassing.
      The lawyer, politician and economist/businessman determine to use the truth to make their case. Their object is to compete and win - to have all that the community produces for themselves. They don’t hesitate to obscure part of the truth or emphasize others falsely in order to achieve their desired outcome. They routinely dissemble or omit truth in order to lie, so that they may win. They feel no guilt. They are sociopaths.
      Some engineers and scientists have been seduced by politics and the methods of lawyers and economists. They too only wish to make their case, to win. These, for the most part, make up Bush’s “good scientists.”

      In Sandra Cisnero’s “House on Mango Street,” the character Esperanza escapes from the barrio by becoming a writer. She knows she will return and when she does she discovers she can not rescue anyone. She can only speak for them. - Pima Community College TV.
      We cannot rescue the poor. None of us have the resources or wealth to do that alone. When they demand in one voice from all of us, we must be ready to acquiesce - for their sake and our own - for the Human Race. If we are really courageous, we can attempt to lead the poor to the truth and to rebellion against the greed of the neo aristocrats.
      No god or hero will save US. If we’re to be saved, we must save ourselves.
      Amazing Grace
      Seems to see it all.
