Phony Choices

Someone brought up a new push for privatizing police. One can see why, with the shootings and lack of accountability.

But what happens when they no longer serve the public at all and become full-time corporate mercenaries?

1} You’ll have to pay-to-play. The poor will have no legal recourse at all. This is, by the way, how MI5 radicalized ‘Jihad Joe,’ according to CAGEUK:

British security services have systematically engaged in the harassment of young Muslims, rendering their lives impossible and leaving them with no legal avenue to redress their situation.

So as a desirable oligarch side-effect, being poor will be an even bigger crime that it has historically been. Vagrancy will equal suspicion of terrorism and that will result in abduction, torture, droning, etc. Can’t figure out why the Democrats want this, since libertarianism doesn’t really strike me as their thing, but I suppose it aligns well enough with the interests of multinationals that do, since that is their thing.

{Reminder: Corporations are not actually job creators, they are job killers. As productivity increases, the need for job decreases as does the need to pay decent wages.

So that is a bullshit excuse designed to make pols feel better about selling their constituents down the River Styx.

Maybe life wasn’t supposed to be lived at 120MPH at the bottom of a corporate ladder.}.

2} It will be politicized. You will live in constant fear of being abducted and taken to a black site on made up charges simply because frowned or snickered when you heard bullshit issue from the mouths of some powerful politician. Your politics will be informed not by your conscience and reason but by force.

This was one of the points I tried to make in The Wisp, I suppose. Hilarious to think of all those people who once took the likes of the original Red Dawn to be a likely scenario. Likely the same people who think ISIS * is about to come roaring down the street and force them into living under Sharia law today.

But it will be like having an occupying force here. They’ll just be Americans. For all the difference that will make.

The point? All roads lead to the same place. Leave the police system as it is and continue to watch people shot, beaten, tortured without legal recourse. Try to fix it, and your fix leads to mercenaries.

This is the game. Give you “options” on what you think you want, get you to fight for it, only to find it was worse than what you tried to fix. A bit like “forcing a card” in stage magic:

You then “force” this card on a victim who thinks he is picking of his own free will.

Things just aren’t always what they seem, folks. The difficulty is in recognizing, acknowledging, accepting that you really are at this point considered an enemy of the State by default and not allowing that knowledge to radicalize you or make you paranoid or insane. Power and wealth are being concentrated in fewer hands than before. The natural result of this is power plays among the players with the rest of us as pawns, assets, and at the same time a source of more wealth and power.

* Forget when I wrote the stuff above; soon after the previous post. More news cycles have–to a small degree–shifted existential threat from ISIS to some banana republic.

I can sort of understand how busy people could be so uninformed. They rely on entertainment news for information and those are pretty much all controlled by DoD and billionaires as is anything else of note and influence. But that at least I get.

What I don’t get is how there’s not the slightest inkling of suspicion when we go from these trumped up phony threats over and over. It’s like some demented Keystone Cops short where everybody runs one direction then suddenly another in a sped up dramatic, panicked pantomime. I suppose if being paraiahed out of your social circle has an advantage, it is being outside enough to view the effects of groupthink.

There’s been a lot made regarding the claim that the Obama administration has dubbed itself the most transparent administration in history. Certainly such a claim is laughable when you view how and what they have blocked from being viewed by the public and the legal-shakiness of how they accomplish such blocks.

But, viewed another way, in a sense, they are the most transparent. We now know that power has absolutely no regard for law, promises, and human decency. We know that torture and killing people in order to secure the future of warfare is more important than education. We know that protecting the crimes of previous administration’s, even if not doing so could have been used to further stated goals, is the most important thing of all.

I tend to now only pay attention to what pols actually do and not what they say except to point out the discrepancies. Stated goals have no meaning when they are not coupled with complementary action.

And the only actions I see are unending, unbelievably intrusive mass surveillance, the militarizing police who shoot unarmed people all the time with little to no consequences, legislation specific to protecting a single food monopoly from prosecution whereas as lame as it was DC used to bust up monopolies, domestic PSYOPs approved by Congress and the POTUS under the NDAAs, COINTELPRO redux, false-flag violence, via psychological harassment and denial of means of redress, drone-ready preparation roll out at every airport in the United States, black site torture not only by the Federal government but by State and Local governments as well, baldfaced lies designed to cover preposterously obvious criminality, and rampant greed and failure of responsibility of elected officials regardless of party. See for example Christie and Rahm both ripping off their constituents and not even caring that the public knows.

That’s the point. The public has been trained. The fascists learned their lessons after Vietnam and quietly built the bullshit machine to counter every single thing that went wrong the first time they tried to convert us to fascism while hiding behind representative democracy. It isn’t that we don’t think, many of us, that we’ve elected crooks. It’s that we often don’t see how it affects us and don’t believe that we could change it if we wanted to bother.

Then there’s the people who are constantly projecting their own values on to others. They hear the words issuing from Cruz’, Paul’s or Obama’s mouth and think the words mean the same things to the speakers as the listeners, as if these people ever really mean what they say in the first place. Faking sincerity: Still the best skill a politician has.

Well, that and better means and methods than you see on stupid spy and cop shows to abuse people with. That’s the other problem: Too many people think if X existed then they certainly would have heard of it. Like the black swan, just not always so.

All roads lead to Dystopia and power loves it.

And a small update to the “What’s Persona Management” post below. There’s a relatively popular account that appears to be just a very, very Dem, gay-married, religious, boy with a cop father.

Seen the photo change periodically. And they don’t seem to the same person. I suppose if I were more interested in Twitter followers than truth, I might use a phony photo as well.

But then you gotta wonder if the other details are correct.

And then maybe whether there’s a real person belonging to the account or not.

I tend not to ask that. There is little difference between a paid political party operative or a GCHQ or CIA operative using a fake account and just a person who has been conditioned to say the same things that the people controlling those other orgs want you to say, think, and, as a result of that, do.

Catch my drift? Frankly, I think the operatives might have more depth, would tend to be more helpful having not only access to answers, but to your private questions as well.
