The limits of current academic understanding of the history of the Americas:

4,000 year old carvings, and more

"Even today, the Andean people still tell stories about the fox as they explain the gift of the first cultivated foods. The Andean legend says the fox found a rope that led to heaven where it found an abundance of new foods. When the fox fell from heaven, it split open, providing a variety of new foods for the Andean people.”

The Andeans had their own Zodiac signs, and the constellation of the fox is still associated with the timing of agricultural events such as planting and irrigation, Benfer said. At sites like Buena Vista, ancient astronomer-priests directed the construction of platform pyramids and art in their temples based on astronomical alignments of the sun, moon and other figures in the Andean Zodiac.

On the 4,000-year-old statue, it appears that the horn player is announcing the priests when they enter the Temple of the Menacing Disk, a site first discovered by Benfer in 2004. On the left, the female foxes around the menacing disk mask-like central figure face the June solstice sunset with two eyes shaped like the moon, indicating gathering darkness Benfer said. On the right, the male fox has one eye shaped like the sun, looking to the rising sun of the December solstice.

“Anthropologists think that many of our beliefs today stem from ancient beliefs, but only occasionally can these beliefs be confirmed,” Benfer said. “This is one of those times. Myths and symbols are reused and recycled in different ways, but the lessons remain the same. The Andean people couldn’t read; yet, the fox story survives and is at least as old as the horoscopes many people read today. The story depicted in the statuary symbolizes the basic opposition between the sun and the moon, male and female, day and night, good and evil.”"

This particular find is interesting because the dates were so out of range of what western scholars had previously believed.


The city of Caral


Caral was inhabited between roughly 2600 BC and 2000 BC,[1] enclosing an area of more than 60 hectares.

Archaeologist Ruth Shady further explored the 5,000 year-old city of pyramids in the Peruvian desert, with its elaborate complex of temples, an amphitheater and ordinary houses.[3] The urban complex is spread out over 150 acres (607,000 m²) and contains plazas and residential buildings. Caral was a thriving metropolis at roughly the same time that Egypt's great pyramids were being built.

No trace of warfare has been found at Caral; no battlements, no weapons, no mutilated bodies. Shady's findings suggest it was a gentle society, built on commerce and pleasure. In one of the pyramids, they uncovered 32 flutes made of condor and pelican bones and 37 cornets of deer and llama bones. One find revealed the remains of a baby, wrapped and buried with a necklace made of stone beads.

They also found evidence of drug use and possibly aphrodisiacs. One theory suggests that the coca they found may be evidence that Caral sprung up as an organized coca growing and distribution centre.

Caral spawns 19 other pyramid complexes scattered across the 35 square mile (80 km²) area of the Supe Valley. The find of the quipu indicates that the later Inca civilization preserved some cultural continuity from the Caral civilization. The date of 2627 BCE is based on carbon dating reed and woven carrying bags that were found in situ.

The material is an excellent candidate for dating, thus allowing for a high precision. The site may date even earlier as samples from the oldest parts of the excavation have yet to be dated.[4] The town had a population of approximately 3000 people. But there are 19 other sites in the area (posted at Caral), allowing for a possible total population of 20,000 people for the Supe valley. All of these sites in the Supe valley share similarities with Caral. They had small platforms or stone circles. Shady (2001) believes that Caral was the focus of this civilization, which itself was part of an even vaster complex, trading with the coastal communities and the regions further inland " as far as the Amazon, if the depiction of monkeys is any indication.

This pyramid city dates back 5,000 years


Comparison of Americas with Europe, Asia and Africa:

For comparison with Sumerian culture:

* Ubaid period: 5300 " 4100 BC (Pottery Neolithic to Chalcolithic)
* Uruk period: 4100 " 2900 BC (Late Chalcolithic to Early Bronze Age I)
o Uruk XIV-V: 4100 " 3300 BC
o Uruk IV period: 3300 " 3000 BC
o Jemdet Nasr period (Uruk III): 3000 " 2900 BC (The first cities, the first urban life)

The Jemdet Nasr period in south"central Iraq is contemporary with the early Ninevite V period in Upper Mesopotamia and the Proto-Elamite stage in western Iran and shares with these periods characteristics such as an emerging bureaucracy and inequality (Wiki).

The centralized buildings, administrative cuneiform tablets and cylinder seals from sites like Jemdet Nasr suggest that settlements of this period were very organized, with a central administration regulating all aspects of the economy, from crafts to agriculture to the rationing of foodstuffs. The economy seems to have been primarily concerned with subsistence based on agriculture and sheep-and-goat pastoralism and small-scale trade. Very few precious stones or exotic trade goods have been found at sites of this period. However, the homogeneity of the pottery across the southern Mesopotamian plain suggests intensive contacts and trade between settlements. (Wiki)

Apart from the distinctive pottery, the period is known as one of the formative stages in the development of the cuneiform script. The oldest clay tablets come from Uruk and date to the late fourth millennium BCE, slightly earlier than the Jemdet Nasr period. By the time of the Jemdet Nasr period, the script had already undergone a number of significant changes. The script originally consisted of pictographs but by the time of the Jemdet Nasr period it was already adopting simpler and more abstract designs. It is also during this period that the script acquired its iconic wedge-shaped appearance.[9] While the language in which these tablets were written cannot be identified with certainty, it is thought to have been Sumerian.[10] The texts deal without exception with administrative matters such as the rationing of foodstuffs or listing objects and animals. Literary genres like hymns and king lists, which become very popular later in Mesopotamian history, are absent. Two different counting systems were in use: a sexagesimal system for animals and humans, for example, and a bisexagesimal system for things like grain, cheese and fresh fish.(Wikigod)

Consider Babylonian astronomy:

"Old Babylonian astronomy refers to the astronomy that was practiced during and after the First Babylonian Dynasty (ca. 1830 BC) and before the Neo-Babylonian Empire (ca. 626 BC).

The Babylonians were the first to recognize that astronomical phenomena are periodic and apply mathematics to their predictions. "

How did those astronomical signs get all the way over there to Peru by 2,000 BC?

They used the same astrological-astronomical symbols for 3,500 years,

Not only that, they had stories of the change of seasons that date back 4,000 years. The tablets represent elements of a fable that is still used today.

Or consider the oldest mummies ever discovered to date. They are not Egyptian. The Chinchorro mummies discovered in South America, in what is now northern Chile and southern Peru, predate the earliest discovered Egyptian mummies by 2,ooo years.


WIki...lunar calender

Once again nice to see that nothing in the Americas is worth noting. They do not exist on this planet.

The planet consists of Asia and Europe, and a little bit of north Africa.

Not much else of interest took place on earth, really.

1556-1790 Spanish treasure fleet: fueling European expansion.

Spanish treasure fleet

So from 1492 to 1790, we can study 300 straight years of raping the Americas for resources and using "indian" and black slaves to do it.

300 years of pure spanish rape with no possible moral legitimacy whatsoever.

The earlier account by Bartolome de las Casas only covered the first 25 barbaric years. Surreal. It just gets uglier and uglier.

Overheating the European economy with extracted gold and silver from the Americas: SPANISH TREASURE FLEET

'Within a few years, most of the gold and silver had been plundered from Mexico, and the flow of precious metals slowed to a trickle, back to Spain. Things did not pick up again, until after Pizarro, in 1531, conquered the Incas, and the flow of gold and silver back to Spain, increased.

Atahualpa, the Inca ruler, paid a ransom to Pizarro of a room, measuring 22 X 17 feet and 9 feet high, filled with gold and silver. After receiving this vast quantity of treasure, Pizarro executed Atahualpa, anyway. The ransom amounted to over 6.5 tons of gold, and 13 tones of silver. Pizarro's clerks calculated that the gold was worth over 2,000,000 pesos and the silver was worth another 350,000 pesos.

By 1535, treasures from Peru were being sent to Spain, was in excess of 1,000,000 pesos a year. About 25% of that went into the royal treasury, the rest belonging to the merchants and investors. Charles had all of the gold object and ornaments, melted into escudos, destroying all of the art objects, created by the Inca culture.

In 1545, silver ore was discovered in Peru, and it changed the way Spain extracted the treasures of the New World. Up to that point, all precious metals were obtained by stealing it from the natives. After 1545, mining became the main method for the acquisition of precession metal from America. Once mining for silver, became big business in the Colonies, gold took second place, as the metal of choice. In 1546, silver mines were discovered in Mexico, insuring two major sources of silver for Spain. "

"During the 17th century, Spain was being crowded on all fronts by its enemies and the only thing that kept it as a world power, was the steady flow of precious metals from America. Philip III, was able to keep Spain out of the Thirty Years' War in 1618. Philip III died in 1621, and his son, Philip IV became king. He was not as willing as his father, to avoid war, so he joined the Thirty Year's War. Warships, that were being built for the Treasure Fleet, were reassigned to the war in Europe. In the 1630's, the tides of war, turned against the Spanish, and she found herself in trouble than she could afford. With the French were making gains in Europe, the English and Dutch were plundering and settling the Spanish Main. In 1624. The English built a settlement in St. Kitts, and in 1627, Barbados. In 1627 and 1635, the French were in Guadeloupe and Martinique. "

Plunder and settle the plundered and settled areas. Good plan.

Why should Spain be the only extractor?

"In 1621 the Dutch formed the Dutch West India Company and in 1628 sent a fleet of over 30 ships into the Caribbean under Admiral Piet Heyn to capture the Treasure Fleet. His fleet was spotted by the Spanish and the Treasure Fleet stayed in port in Cartagena and Vera Cruz. When some of his ships returned to Europe, the Spanish thought the danger had passed, and he captured the fleet off the coast of Havana, due to the in-experience of the Spanish commander. The Dutch booty was 90 tons of gold and silver worth about 3,000,000 pesos. King Philip IV suffered a nervous collapse when he heard of the loss of the gold fleet, and did not appear in public for over 5 days. In 1634 the Dutch seized Curacao, further reducing Spain's influence in the New World.."

In the "new" world, King Philip IV gets his stolen gold stolen from him.

Dutch "booty". There really is no use in mentioning the "indians" from South and Central America anymore, since they just serve as backdrop for the European psychopathy and as slave miners.

Spanish Booty Paths

Spanish booty white, Portuguese booty blue.


Needless to say much labor was necessary to extract the wealth and indians seemed to be dying too fast.

And with all that gold maybe people could be hired... but.......nah,

The aim is not extermination. If they were all killed, who would do all the work?

The aim is harvesting labor and having the laborer breed little laborers. If they were all dead, the benefactors may have to get up of their lazy asses and do some work themselves. This would be quite "uncultured", to soil ones hands with labor.


Africa 1850s:

All divied up by 1914:

After hundreds of years of raping the Americas, why say "no" to Africa? Saying "yes" to the Americas while saying "no" to Africa may seem ungentlemanly.

Perhaps this was the intellectual fruit of the age of enlightenment, the deep understanding that Africa lies just below Europe like hanging grapes, ripe for the taking.

The French:

It would be a challenge for any scholar to find any moral justification for this massive outbreak of theft, murder and enslavement which pumped over 300 years of gold and silver into Europe while destroying the history of the cultures enslaved to do the actual work.

A scholar would be hard pressed to find a single greater example brutal resource extraction in world history. There are only 4 large masses and 2 of them were pounced upon mercelessly, brutalized and enslaved and set up to extract their own resources and place on boats to Europe for hundreds of years.

Yet....look at what children are taught about a massive and central part of the true history of the Americas.

Much of history is rated X for extremely graphic violence and abuse, and who wants to see a movie like that?

And above all, who would show a movie like that to children? It is obvious and natural that people do not want children exposed to that. This is understandable.

And that is why it is natural to "turn the channel" to something more healing, more pleasant. This happens all the time.


If history is rated X, how can history be taught to children?

I'm sure most would agree that children should be allowed to ejjoy their innocence of the world without seeing horrible things.

But national and world history is taught to young children all the time. How is that possible?

Write it in a "G" rated form.

(I am using the American rating system for movies:

G- General Audiences
All ages admitted

PG- Parental Guidance Suggested
Some material may not be suitable for children

PG-13- Parents Strongly Cautioned
Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13

R- Restricted
Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian

NC-17- No One Under 17 admitted
(1990"present) (an equivalent to an X rating)

Ancient Americas is first mentioned in some footnotes in chapter 14.

Of course there are the ancient civilizations in the Middle East and Egypt, then the Greeks.

Some ruins were found after Columbus but nobody knows much about them. (And, of course, who would want to ask an "indian" about it all anyway?)

The beginning of "exploration", from the site:

"Both Western Europe, and China began to send out explorers in an effort to learn about the world around them. These explorers helped to expand the knowledge of their people.

As a result of their explorations, trade routes opened up between civilizations. Each nation specialized in certain types of products and goods. These goods would be shipped to far away nations, in exchange for the goods that they specialized in. "

These explorers seem like pretty reasonable people from these descriptions.

On Hernan Cortez:

"In 1519 an explorer by the name of Hernan Cortez left his home in Cuba in order to explore Mexico. Cortez was convinced that he could obtain more riches on the mainland, than was possible by remaining on the islands in the Caribbean.

Cortez and over 500 men arrived in Mexico, and began traveling towards the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan. The Aztec Empire was wealthy, and in many ways more advanced than any European nation. However, they did not have horses, nor did they have guns. This game the Spaniards a huge advantage.

In addition, many of the peoples who had been conquered by the Aztecs were unhappy about the way the had been treated by them. The Aztecs were brutal, and often sacrificed the people they conquered to their gods. As a result, many of these people were ready to join forces with Cortez and his men to overthrow the Aztec Empire.

At first the Aztecs did not fight back. They thought that the Europeans were the fulfillment of an ancient legend that spoke of white bearded gods.

After seeing the wealth of their empire Cortez set out to take control of it. Within just a few years, he and his small army were able to defeat one of the most advanced civilizations of the era, setting Cortez as the ruler of Mexico, in behalf of Spain. "

Ancient Americas... People in Mexico started to farm about 5000BC

No mention of Peru until the Incas in about 1,200 AD. Nobody before the Incas existed in Peru as a society.

Nothing from the Americas.

Kidipede teaches children of pre-columbian history of the Americas:

"But by around 2000 BC people in Central and South America did begin farming anyway. They farmed corn (probably a domesticated version of their old food teosinte), and squash, and beans. They also farmed roots like potatoes and sweet potatoes. Once they were farming, people had to settle down in permanent villages. Soon they began to form bigger states. The first of these was the Olmec civilization, which began around 1200 BC. It was mainly in Central America (the southern part of modern Mexico) although Olmec-type monuments are found as far east as modern Guatemala.

The Olmec civilization collapsed (we're not sure why) about 400 BC. The problem may again have been climate change, but there are also signs of invasions. Soon other people, or perhaps descendants of the Olmec people themselves, created new states in the same area. The best known of these are the Maya. Another one is the Zapotec. Early signs of the Maya state began as early as 1000 BC, but the main Maya period began about 600 BC, with the decline of the Olmecs. The Maya gradually established a powerful kingdom or kingdoms (we're not sure if there was one king or different kings in different cities), which extended over most of Central America (modern Guatamala).

Perhaps under the influence of the Maya state, other states like the Moche began to rule different parts of South America.
When the Maya state began to decline, about 1300 AD, two other important kingdoms formed near them. One was the Aztecs, whose kingdom was to the north of the Maya, in what is now Mexico. The other was the Inca, whose kingdom was to the south of the Maya, in what is now Ecuador and Peru."

Q1: How did Peru get close to the Yucatan?

Cuba is just under Florida in red and the Yucatan is the green bulge from Mexico that sticks out to Cuba.

Peru is in blue along the west coast of South America. Bolivia is in pink.

The second largest mountain range on the planet separates them, second only to the Himalayas but just as intimidating in stature. Next to the Andes is the largest rainforest in the world, virtually impenetrable.

But somehow, the Mayan culture seems to have influenced the rise of the Inca, and nothing seemed to exist before the Inca along the west coast.

In World History for Kids, the Americas were not mentioned in "ancient civilizations".


Please note that the world shown above consists of only 5 large inhabitable land masses.

Setting aside Australia, all people on earth live primarily on 4 large land masses :

1) North America
2) South America
3) Europe-Asia (my word)
4) Africa

Note that North and South America are half of the total.

If people do not know or have forgotten the history of half of the only 4 large masses on their planet, that shows a pretty poor capacity to remember ones past.

The cultural history of North and South America was basically attacked, burned and dismantled. Their books were burned as heretical by true flaming psychopaths. Their monuments were dismantled and converted into Spanish churches (using slaves, of course).

Because if people can collectively do this to thousands of years of history of 2 of the 4 largest land masses on our planet:

then adding 9-11-01 to the list is just another drop in a very full bucket.

Cultural life in Peru is described as beginning when the Mayan state begins to decline, a mere 700 years ago.

4,300 years of culture are shaved from the history. Recall the BBC also shaved 4,300 years.

Evidence of the study of astronomy and astrology pre-dating the Babylonians shaved from history.

Evidence of pyramid cities about the same time as Egyptian dynasties are first formed shaved from history.


Europeans in North America: Poetic beauty alongside sociopathic violence.

The earliest history of the US cannot be understood using Disney movies. It is a mysterious blend of contradictions. Consider the poetic beauty in the opening argument in the Declaration of Independence:

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. " That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, " That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Beautiful stuff.

There is no doubt Thomas Jefferson was a highly educated and sensitive individual. Meanwhile, he was banging his black mistress and was the owner of slaves (and he was pretty rich as a result, too). While this was written the US had an open door policy of immigration from Africa with free transport:

I think that he and Abraham Lincoln were some of the most talented American politician/writers I have ever read. They were both great at delivering an argument.

For this reason they may be the best examples of how many Europeans managed to live a double life mastering the art of double-speak. Sensitive humanity engaged in the largest single theft of land and rape of cultures in world history, while seeing and hearing no evil, nor seeing the hypocrisy within ones self.

To show how impossible it is to squeeze US history into the appropriate pill box, the following speech by Henry David Thoreau in front of the citizens of Concorde, Mass. 1859:

He is speaking about Captain John Brown


Both John Brown, uneducated and Henry David Thoreau, Harvard educated, show the prevailing attitudes in in the US by opposing them.

Why would some white man go to war with other white men to free black men in mid 19th century US? For the money?

Likewise, when Thoreau gives an unpopular speech in Massachusetts in 1859 (just before "Lincoln freed the slaves"), it shows us the prevailing attitudes even at that time were conformist and quite cowardly.

In this particular case, both Thoreau and John Brown serve as "mirrors" to society at large. Unpopular mirrors.

In both cases, it is clear that these people do not care that they are unpopular.

Contrast that with Disney history in which the "Northerners" wished to help slaves escape servitude. If that were true, then why is Thoreau "radical" for supporting John Brown in 1859 in the north?

Disney history erases any evidence of the conformity to vampirism. It erases the conformist reality of people who consistently see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil (of themselves).

From the wikilink:

"Had I interfered in the manner which I admit, and which I admit has been fairly proved (for I admire the truthfulness and candor of the greater portion of the witnesses who have testified in this case), had I so interfered in behalf of the rich, the powerful, the intelligent, the so-called great, or in behalf of any of their friends, either father, mother, brother, sister, wife, or children, or any of that class, and suffered and sacrificed what I have in this interference, it would have been all right; and every man in this court would have deemed it an act worthy of reward rather than punishment.

This court acknowledges, as I suppose, the validity of the law of God. I see a book kissed here which I suppose to be the Bible, or at least the New Testament. That teaches me that all things whatsoever I would that men should do to me, I should do even so to them. It teaches me, further, to "remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them." I endeavored to act up to that instruction. I say, I am yet too young to understand that God is any respecter of persons. I believe that to have interfered as I have done as I have always freely admitted I have done in behalf of His despised poor, was not wrong, but right. Now, if it is deemed necessary that I should forfeit my life for the furtherance of the ends of justice, and mingle my blood further with the blood of my children and with the blood of millions in this slave country whose rights are disregarded by wicked, cruel, and unjust enactments, I submit; so let it be done!"

" Excerpt from a speech given by John Brown in court after his conviction, John Brown's Last Speech, November 2, 1859


An excellent source of of early maps of early North American "indian" territories during the arrival of the Europeans covering westward Euro-american expansion:

Good map of west territories before Europeans here

East territories here

Excellent maps to show the progression of forts and settlements through the midwest 1815 onward here

It is interesting to see how the US "acquires" large pieces of land.

What does our own history tell us about European and Euro-american tendencies over the last 500 years?

There is an obvious pattern of theft, enslavement and resource extraction.

A general capacity to treat those being crushed as if they are invisible. Everything from the first "conquests" to the wording of the US Declaration of Independence stands as historic proof.

While murdering enslaving and stealing, there is an incredible capacity in the benefiting populace to "hear no evil, see no evil or speak no evil".

Why is an accurate knowledge of the past important to understand the present?

The answer is obvious. Like mathematics, history is the study of patterns. The present is simply the current set of patterns in a long chain of patterns.

Consider a soldier between the ages of 17 and 22 going off to a war in a foreign land. For the most part they were taught the Disney version of history with a few modifications in their teens concerning wars.

It is impossible that this soldier can see or know anything of the intricacies of the true realities in our past. Disney movies don't teach that.

James Baldwin describes the danger of misrepresenting historic reality to ones presnt state of mind and world view eloquently.

The presentation is given beginning at the 2:50 mark to 17:40 in the following video:


The "Indian" heritage, 2011

Villa el Salvador, Peru:

It is interesting to ask if there is such a thing as resource-starved communities in nature. Beyond the human experience, are there parallels in animal and plant life?

To a plant resource starvation leads to stunted growth or death. For groups of animals resource starvation leads to a decrease in population until balance is re-established.

In the case of nature resource starvation leads to a natural rebalancing. But there is no species that desires or requires the endless extraction of labor from another species among animals. This is unique to human beings.

Certain human beings have a unique bottomless pit of insatiable greed that animals do not share. Resource starved human communities are a human invention, there being no parallel in nature of large scale "poverty".


Food, shelter, access to medicine and security are the 4 necessities required for a person to live to a natural old age. All else is extra.

Because it is known that a person must suffer a great deal if deprived of these 4 basic necessities, they have been used a tools to manipulate and control.

One working principle of "people farms" is that of barely providing enough for the basic necessities while creating conditions within the communities that is so repulsive, so intolerable for those within that they will do just about anything to get out of there.

It is not desired that the populations of people farms perish, for that would destroy a wonderful resource for those that harvest people for labor and services and benefit from the induced desperation.


One group seems to use the other group as a giant buffer system against calamity.

It is as if there is an ocean of poorer people below that act like a pillow upon which these societies can thrive.

If human beings are considered as another resource like oil or copper, there exist large reservoirs of people willing to work very hard just for basic necessities.

I think of them as living in "people farms" and they exist around any major city in the "developing" world in places sometimes called "slums". Millions and millions of "extra" people in resource-starved environments.

These places provide a virtually unlimited supply of reusable and disposable humans for the needs of industry and the richer societies.

So the great progress was progress for whom? Do some of these scientists understand that after all this wonderful progress the slums pretty much look the same?

Advanced methods of people farming:

1) Resource starvation through monetary manipulation

2) Resource starvation through control of land ownership

3) Behavior control by inducing an atmosphere of instability, threat, fear and paranoia.

Traditional slavery, with one person owning another as property, placed certain obligations on the slave owner like providing food, shelter, health care and child care. Advanced people farming no longer places this obligation on the beneficiary of labor. Low wages are paid and it's...
Exhaustion or death of the worker simply means one needs to hire another, no loss of personal property through overworking an employee.

If one considers how land has existed long before human beings, one has to wonder at the mental gymnastics necessary to steal land, claim it as your own and sell it over and over to future generations at ever inflated prices while leaving none left for many of the earth's inhabitants.

If one doesn't have land in a "developing" country there is always room at the far edge of the shanty town outside the nearest major city. Increasing seas of mud homes, cardboard, corrogated metal, forraged plywood with dug holes in the earth used as latrines.
From there one can "do ones fair share" as part of the cheap expendable labor force and "work ones way up". They could also have a family, breeding young fresh laborers to keep the process going. Resource starvation assures they don't have a snowball's chance in hell of receive education to "compete" with people whose mamas and papas have access to currency pools.

Someone has to do the dirty work.

Consider what we have recently observed as an economic meltdown.

The leaders who originally sponsored the EU viewed nation states as having plunged the continent into a millennium of warfare. But today, finance is the new mode of warfare. Its objective is the same as military conquest: to seize the land and basic infrastructure, and to levy tribute " euphemized as bailout repayments, as if the financial system were necessary to fuel industry and labor rather than siphoning off their surplus.


It is interesting to consider how induced financial collapse through unpayable loans can be much more effective than direct military conquest.

They lead to "people farms" which provide "cheap labor" while the bulk of the Govt revenue is sent to banks in other countries as "tribute".

It is important for "advanced economies" to have large "people farms" within the country as well as the "seas" of people farms around all major cities in the "developing" world in the form of slums and other forms of shanty-towns.


From a poster:

There are evil smart people doing bad things, and then there are smart idiots who expend inordinate amount of time and energy trying to suppress inquiry into potential shenanigans by means of ridicule. I've noticed there are certain enclaves in which one can absolutely expect, without hesitation, to be excoriated for doing any of the following:

- questioning the motives and integrity of certain governments, corporations or institutions (NGO)
- speaking in support of certain governments not in the subset above
- claiming or even suggesting anything is false in a 'story' put forth by any entity in the first subset
- claiming or even suggesting anything is true in a 'story' put forth by any entity in the second subset

It's really easy to see the common intersection in the items above - it is anything that risks maintenance of the status quo desires and objectives of western facism. Simple as that. If you can't see it, I guarantee you're an idiot. If you can see it, but shill for free, you are still an idiot. Kissing ass will, at best, secure you a future of kissing asses. If you can't see it and don't benefit from it but are remarkably intelligent in one or more different domains, you're a smart idiot. If you see it but shill for profit, you are smart evil, but not nearly as smart as those who do it.

Smart idiots are the only reason the opportunity for conspiratorial malfeasance in places of power is abundant. Only an idiot would think powerful sociopaths would not avail themselves of the opportunity. The reason I have a dim view of the near future is not because of the deleterious influences of truthers or the sods falling for scams of Sylvia Brown; it's because there really are evil, intelligent people in places of power with armies of unwitting smart idiots paving the way for their conquest.

They happily toil away at their college-educated white collar jobs fashioning the tools of their own enslavement, all for a pool and gated community (for now). Their masters take the lion's share, this they know, and they believe the master deserves it. After all, if it weren't for the masters, wouldn't they be *bleep*ting in a ditch right now? Oakwood Estates looks mighty fine by comparison. So long as we can keep the ghetto rats out!

It can't happen here, it can't happen now. Oh yes they admit, some limited hangouts did happen but only in the dim and distant past; and, it happens over there (in places of resource contention - all the time, even much worse of course).



"Here's a clip from an interview with history professor Robert Brenner who sums it up perfectly:

Robert Brenner: "... Economic forecasters have underestimated how bad the current crisis is because they have over-estimated the strength of the real economy and failed to take into account the extent of its dependence upon a buildup of debt that relied on asset price bubbles. In the U.S., during the recent business cycle of the years 2001-2007, GDP growth was by far the slowest of the postwar epoch. There was no increase in private sector employment. The increase in plants and equipment was about a third of the previous, a postwar low. Real wages were basically flat. There was no increase in median family income for the first time since World War II. Economic growth was driven entirely by personal consumption and residential investment, made possible by easy credit and rising house prices. Economic performance was weak, even despite the enormous stimulus from the housing bubble and the Bush administration’s huge federal deficits. Housing by itself accounted for almost one-third of the growth of GDP and close to half of the increase in employment in the years 2001-2005. It was, therefore, to be expected that when the housing bubble burst, consumption and residential investment would fall, and the economy would plunge.” (“Overproduction not Financial Collapse is the Heart of the Crisis”, Robert P. Brenner speaks with Jeong Seong-jin, Asia Pacific Journal)

Sound familiar? Flat wages, weak demand, slow growth and more and more debt? All signs of an aging, hobbled system that's slipping inexorably into stagnation. This is why the Fed adopted its present policy of bubblemaking, because the only way to avoid stagnation is by increasing the debt-load. Authors John Bellamy Foster and Fred Magdoff traced the origins of the policy back to the 1970s. They revealed what their findings in an article in The Monthly Review titled "Financial Implosion and Stagnation". Here's an excerpt:

"It was the reality of economic stagnation beginning in the 1970s, as heterodox economists Riccardo Bellofiore and Joseph Halevi have recently emphasized, that led to the emergence of “the new financialized capitalist regime,” a kind of “paradoxical financial Keynesianism” whereby demand in the economy was stimulated primarily “thanks to asset-bubbles.” Moreover, it was the leading role of the United States in generating such bubbles"despite (and also because of) the weakening of capital accumulation proper"together with the dollar’s reserve currency status, that made U.S. monopoly-finance capital the “catalyst of world effective demand,” beginning in the 1980s. But such a financialized growth pattern was unable to produce rapid economic advance for any length of time, and was unsustainable, leading to bigger bubbles that periodically burst, bringing stagnation more and more to the surface.

A key element in explaining this whole dynamic is to be found in the falling ratio of wages and salaries as a percentage of national income in the United States. Stagnation in the 1970s led capital to launch an accelerated class war against workers to raise profits by pushing labor costs down. The result was decades of increasing inequality." ("Financial Implosion and Stagnation", John Bellamy Foster and Fred Magdoff, Monthly Review)

Foster and Magdoff do a fine job of explaining how the system has been rejiggered to overcome stagnation. Financial assets provide a place where surplus capital can go and grow via paper profits. But this type of investment does not add to productive capacity or real wealth; it merely enlarges the amount of money capital while creating the means for transferring wealth from one class to another. And that's the point. Every burst bubble thrusts middle class households further and further into the red, while bank moguls and Wall Street tycoons get even richer. It is all by design, nothing is left to chance.

It might surprise you to know that the Fed has become so skilled at bubble-making, that the condition of the underlying economy doesn't really matter any more. By fixing interest rates below the rate of inflation and attaching a liquidity-tailpipe to the stock market (QE2), the Fed has been able engineer a boom in equities, while the so-called "real" economy languishes in a near-Depression. In fact, consumer credit is actually shrinking (excluding student loans) while margin debt (the amount that speculators borrow to buy stocks) continues to soar. This is an astonishing development. The Fed has created a bifurcated market where bankers and hedge fund managers are able to rake in billions off their gaming operations while 300 million working Americans remain mired in debt. "

The Devil as Symbolism

Chief psychological characteristics seem to be...

1) Passion for cannibalism
2) Pure cunning egoism- zero sense of or interest in other
3) Excessiveness
4) Enjoyment torturing others

5) Spiritual ugliness, psychopathic discord

there are only a few places to find Mr Devil:

1) Within nature itself, its manifestation in spatio-temporal form
2) Within the animal and plant kingdom
3) Within natural disasters, natural cycles
4) Within the minds of human beings: Mental projections perceived as real.

Please note the extreme similarities with the Hare checklist of Factor 1:

Factor 1
Aggressive narcissism

1. Glibness/superficial charm
2. Grandiose sense of self-worth
3. Pathological lying
4. Cunning/manipulative
5. Lack of remorse or guilt
6. Emotionally shallow
7. Callous/lack of empathy
8. Failure to accept responsibility for own actions

Also of interest are the first 3 entries of factor 2:

Factor 2
Socially deviant lifestyle

1. Need for stimulation/proneness to boredom
2. Parasitic lifestyle
3. Poor behavioral control

Cleckley Checklist

In his 1941 book, Mask of Sanity, Hervey M. Cleckley introduced 16 behavioral characteristics of a psychopath: [40]

1. Superficial charm and good "intelligence"
2. Absence of delusions and other signs of irrational thinking
3. Absence of nervousness or psychoneurotic manifestations
4. Unreliability
5. Untruthfulness and insincerity
6. Lack of remorse and shame
7. Inadequately motivated antisocial behavior
8. Poor judgment and failure to learn by experience
9. Pathologic egocentricity and incapacity for love
10. General poverty in major affective reactions
11. Specific loss of insight
12. Unresponsiveness in general interpersonal relations
13. Fantastic and uninviting behavior with drink and sometimes without
14. Suicide threats rarely carried out
15. Sex life impersonal, trivial, and poorly integrated
16. Failure to follow any life plan.


The psychological attributes symbolized within the character of Satan are quite real in that they exist within very discordant, disturbed human beings.

George Carlin: "When you are born in this world you are given a ticket to the freak show, and when you are born in the U.S. you are given a front row seat."

As he says, some of us take notes even though the pile of sh*t is probably too deep.

Or from a slightly more positive point of view:
