Rave New World

As the establishment rave in Paris winds down, the chimera of clean energy propels industrial societies toward nuking the future. The new age ghost dance, as an expression of social despair, has led to progressive self-delusion that promises us the world, if only we believe.

Stepping through the looking glass, Michael Swifte examines the metrics of messaging by establishment social media and philanthropy, that, combined, is the driving force of the non-profit industrial complex. As Swifte observes, "Money speaks most loudly in the messaging sphere."

The non-profit industrial complex, says Swifte, "incubates a constantly expanding web" to amplify establishment messaging, which requires maintaining silence about "lines of inquiry best left alone". These lines of inquiry include such things as following the money behind social media stars, as well as examining the false hope they and their funders promote.

Manufacturing consent to the establishment energy agenda through messaging is what Swifte calls "a particularly diabolical manipulation" leading to a massive explosion in new fossil fuel plants under the guise of carbon capture. The party line of the establishment, says Swifte, is to force a false choice between 'clean coal' and nuclear power.

Meanwhile, the stable of establishment NGOs -- used to bolster establishment media -- continues "feigning care for the earth while plotting the future for the oligarchs".

You Say You Want a Revolution

The only way to revolutionize public policy is to take over the government; to do that you have to make yourself a viable threat to the establishment.

A Click Away

The term 'civil society' -- bandied about by social media enthusiasts -- is not commonly understood. In its simplest sense, civil society is that which belongs to citizens.

The cessation of civil society, through privatization, has led to the diminished civil rights of citizens to political equality and social freedom. The usurping of these rights by NGOs has made civil liberties like free speech a privilege, reserved for the aristocracy and its supplicants.

With the destruction of community through displacement that severs community ties, citizens are disconnected from society, and dispossessed from participating in civil affairs. Absent an authentic civil society, the annihilation of civil liberties is just a click away.

Diminishing Consciousness

My estimate of the situation is that we have competing aspects of a fascist movement ruling the US (and World)--one secular, and one religious. With the transfer of wealth from public to private spheres in this century, the capture of media, academia, and civil society through aristocratic derivatives indicates a future of diminishing consciousness. The disconnect from reality, exemplified by NGOs like 350, helps to consolidate American fascism.

State of Affairs

The only real contest for power in the US at present is between secular and religious fascists. Everything else is just show business.

By Their Deeds

The sure sign of a fascist state is that it rules by force, not consensus.

Enemies and Spectators

Only the dispossessed, displaced and disconnected can revolt. The rest are either enemies or spectators.
