Confessions: What Happened to Us

 

These people were not ‘mentally-ill’.

Hacker Group Anonymous Leaks Chilling Video in Case of Alleged Steubenville Rape, Cover-Up

 

They were more like Normal, Happy, Healthy and Contented.

“4 Years After Vow to Close Gitmo, Why Has Obama Signed NDAA Bill Barring Transfer of Its Prisoners?”

 

They were the pride of their community/society/country/nation/empire.

 

Exclusive: As Gitmo Turns 11, Al Jazeera’s Sami al-Hajj on 6-Year Ordeal of U.S. Detention, Torture

 

They were not fictional characters.

(Although fiction can portray the greater truth.)

They were real, physical human beings.

As were their victims.

 

And they were in command.

(The perpetrators, not the victims.)

Dominant Ideologies of the 21st Century

Economic Ideology

Neo-liberal Capitalism for all, punctuated by Neo-conservative excesses

Political Ideology

Electronic Liberalism on the surface (anything else that is not lefty-commie will do below the surface)
As manifested in, and managed by, Corporate Statism with Ecumenical Chauvinism

Social Ideology

Computer-Aided Solidarity of Self-Interest (or is it Shared-Interest?)

Moral Ideology

Synthetic Humanism for People Like Us
And Gleeful Sadism for those we don’t like
Or those who don’t like us
Or those who are against us
Or those who don’t agree with us
Or those whose interests are not the same as those of us.
