Oh boy. What a whirlwind a firestorm of action and reaction. One of the primary places is Ferguson MO. There are others, each calculat3d to install fear and confusion.
I'll chat about this but it all boils down to one thing, ie, subversion.
See: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/subversion for a simplistic definition.
From the site: a systematic attempt to overthrow or undermine a government or political system by persons working secretly from within
Subversion is way older than communism, though it is a common term when referring to collectivist attempts to do the above. In fact, subversion has existed for eons.
It is all done to consolidate power. From the earliest primitive orgs to our current situation, there have always been those who want to control everyone else. Kings and shamans on down the line til that little dweeb Marx organized (sic) communism, the machinations continue.
So, Ferguson you say? Here is what I think.
Someone is killed by a socalled 'authority figure'. The details are mixed and parsed, whipping up emotions in several corners.
It goes in a different direction than say Zimmerman and the budding hood. I believe people were sent there to incite riot. Not just the usual suspects but people inside the crowd. The are dedicated believers preying on dupes to do the bidding of their masters. The more confusion and mayhem the better.
On the other side (There must be sides to pit people against each other), cops are sent to observe and attempt control. Some of it is hamfisted, which feeds the growing militarization of police.
Notice how many are spotlighting the aforesaid militarization. Not just certain socalled rightwingers, but many a progressive etc. It creates a false sense of 'common ground'.
Notice the people who have prevailed were folks who were armed to defend their businesses and lives. This has been deemphasized in proportion to the emotional exacerbation.
I have my own opinions re what happened. Those things have been bandied about for weeks and will continue to be for some time to come.
Look what's happening around the event. How officials clamor to control.. It is merely power play and for them hopefully more smoke and mirrors.
These are observations. We should pull this thing apart to expose the manipulation going down.
And a trip back to 1920's Chicago specifically and that era in general can give us a big clue to my previous mention of timeless control. Look at the 'cops and robbers' behavior/mentality that unfolded in the 20s and 30s. One side fed the other.
More crime? More restrictive to the public laws. Antigun actions were just part of it. And the FDR social 'reforms' tossed in sure cooked up a rancid stew.
Compare to now and see what's happening. It's MOS.
So take my thoughts and see for yourselves.
I will have more of them in the next few days.
Lucky It Was a False Alarm
