Terra Nullius?

“I do not agree that the dog in a manger has the final right to the manger even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place.” (emphasis added)

(To the Peel Commission 1937) – Sir Winston Churchill (no Sir of mine).

The race argument may have been facially concealed by the self-perceived elite, however the latter’s disdain for life continues to be expressed via its system of financial oppression. I hope this provides a modicum of insight into the pathology underlying the mindset of the aristocrats that the middle and lower classes must confront. An inverse relationship was once extolled between melanin and humanity to facilitate the plunder and exploitation of lands. Today, the working class of all races is being subjected to the same belligerence and contempt as the commons are privatized and the social support system is eviscerated. The all encompassing argument this time seems to be that there exists a primary causal relationship between effort and poverty. This is BUNK!!! You are not poor because you don’t work hard enough. By its very design, our societal economic structure demands a large swath of the population exist on the brink of starvation.

Do not believe that the individuals who seek to establish a neo-serfdom share the same respect and compassion towards humanity as you do.  It is also rather naive to assume that the oligarchy is unaware of the difficulties associated with living below the poverty level. The union worker is now viewed with the same contempt as the red man once was. Leopards never change their spots compadres and power concedes nothing willingly.  The talk of spending cuts is aimed at you who require assistance to survive. You who work 60 hrs a week at $7.25/ hr and is then taxed to facilitate the death of innocents around the globe as the march of empire continues. You who benefit from social programs like Medicare and public school to facilitate the well being of your family. Those drones and Israeli weapons are not paid for with tax dollars from General Electric after all.

The purpose of a state should be to ensure that its citizens thrive and not merely to facilitate capital acquisition for a particular socioeconomic class.

One love,

HJ

P.S. Make a whole lotta noise in defense of Social Security and Medicare against austerity measures at all costs.  John Galt is not your friend.

Addendum – But then again, the public won’t win any title when not if, the Fed does a Duran, “No mas,” to the US. The private contractors are untouchable, as are the big oil subsidies, capital gains rates and the Pentagon, but the cuts have to come from somewhere.  Hmmm, somehow the pressure is always applied upon he who can least afford it. Here’s a thought, how about a financial transaction tax of 0.5% on every securities transaction on all exchanges? Worth a shot but I doubt anyone in D.C. wants to offend Baron Dimon and Count Blankfein.

  1. That’s a great video.
    You point directly to the problem many people have –they think the money managers have the same view and feelings they do–they do not. They are ruthless in their dealings with others. Until the ‘new serfs’ get that through their heads they’re going to take a pounding.
    Thanks.

    • Henry Jekyll says:

      No argument here my friend. The same ruthlessness can be traced all the way back to European colonization and enslavement of free men all over the world..

      • Yes, but that doesn’t mean it’s the way it has to continue. Does it? I hope not.

        • Henry Jekyll says:

          As do I hope it is only temporary. I had a discussion with a friend recently that concluded with an agreement that society will change only when man reawakens to the inter-connectedness of all life and treats his fellow man as he would himself. Some of us already live with an understanding of this but many are still trapped in the illusory world of Maya.

      • I hope the awareness of connection hits a saturation point that tips things back into balance soon.

  2. Seriously? Did others not of a dark skin pigmentation think that they would never feel the wrath of the aristocracy? It was only a matter of time before they would ‘turn on their own’. The Indians have all been wiped out, the Black people are either shooting each other to death over drug turf wars because of abject poverty, disenfranchisement and a lack of jobs due to racism and as if that isn’t enough, they are incarcerated by the millions. So, now they have been dealt with and people seriously thought that it would cease with them? It is quite obvious that no one was paying attention to the Sunday morning sermon about “I am my brother’s keeper.”

    We now have an entire world in chaos, poverty, war, strife, bedlam and pandemonium and there is not a thing that we can do about it. This mess has been allowed to go on for far too long and now that it’s hit the fan, there are those who are in shock. Well, too bad, so sad. That is what we get when we do not look out, nor care for one another. When we have the mindset of “I’ve got mine, to heck with you and yours,” then this is exactly why we are at this point!

  4. Henry,
    I believe the first fellow was Michael Hudson? I didn’t know he was an economist with JPMorgan Bank. Now the second fellow was an actor obviously. Was that scene part of a full documentary movie (if so what is the title?) or was the scene all that was filmed? Either way good things come in small packages-the clip packs a powerful message.
    Thanks,
    Jerry

  5. Thanks, Henry. We can never get enough good information. Appreciate it.

    Henry Jekyll has a wicked sweet piece that puts certain things into perspective without pulling any punches.

  7. Jeff Nguyen says:

    Forgive me but since you and Shelby have addressed similar themes in your post I would like to share a similar (ok, exactly the same) response)…

    The divide and conquer policies of the ruling class have effectively diverted social tensions to focus on race to the exclusion of class. If we were to focus on class the disparities would be too glaring to ignore and so the elites avoid at all costs such discussions or discourse. Why do a fractional percentage of human beings and their interrelated families control a massive percentage of the Earth’s wealth and resources?

    By keeping us divided among racial lines we fail to unite along class lines where we could truly find common ground. One of the hallmarks of the hunger strikes in the California prisons recently was the calling of truces by the prison gangs across racial lines. This is their worst fear, that we’ll stop hating and killing each other and start to realize that the monsters in our midst can sit in corporate boardrooms and wear 3-piece suits.

    One more thing to add. For every concession Obama wins he gives up two things in return. This is all about maneuvering to cut Medicare and Social Security, the bane of the ruling class’s existence. Food stamps and Head Start were just the start. They were just for poor people anyway but touch Medicare and SS and they might just have a fight on their hands finally.

    • Agreed. Once the racial walls fall then discourse moves to unity. Saw this happen with the Occupy Oakland group where many people understood the common threat of the ruling class. Same was also evident when Occupy Wall Street began. When one is discussing issues in a chat where there are only word to use–no body language, no skin colors evident, no distinguishing features except how you use your words to communicate effective with each other then the intellectual and psychological groundwork rises quickly.
      Well put, Jeff N.
      Oh hello.

    • Henry Jekyll says:

      Your voice and opinions are always welcome Jeff. The identification of common threads among different racial groups is indeed something that the aristocratic class has made a concerted effort to prevent from happening. Isolated segments of the population have always been a lot easier to subjugate and manipulate. I look at the systematic efforts such as COINTELPRO to crush black unity movements in the 60s and 70s as prima facie evidence of this.
      Today I find the trend of unity across ethnic and racial lines by the nouveau riche to join their elite counterparts in contempt for the poor to be especially troubling. There is a certain aloofness and nonchalance towards the plight of the downtrodden that seems to be rooted in this “individualist” culture. The myth of the self made man ascending the ladder of success in a vacuum has become rather prevalent in the past 20 years. This has given rise to a culture that is more than okay with austerity measures being doled out to the subset of the population that can least afford it. Young professionals of all races have fallen victim to the warped ideology of poverty being solely a function of laziness.
      Whether this is the end result of the directives outlined in the Powell memo, or merely cues derived from popular culture, I cannot say for certain. However, the Men’s Warehouse crowd has become rather dismissive and judgmental of the situation confronting those least capable of exercising self determination.
      As far as Washington is concerned, imho those puppets are there to rubber stamp the decisions made by the barons of finance and industry and to bolster the illusion of difference between the two factions. The animosity between The Rock and Stone Cold was more legitimate than what transpires in DC. But you’re right bud, Social Security and Medicare are the big paydays eyed by the financiers.

  8. In my opinion it’s time to strip bank of the power to issue money period. I find it a little surprising that a lot of people don’t realize where our money comes from – that banks create it out of thin air when they issue loans. I also find it really strange that some IMF economists are circulating a proposal to do just that. It was first proposed during the Great Depression and is called the Chicago Plan. See http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/wp/2012/wp12202.pdf

  9. Henry Jekyll says:

    Thank you for stopping by and joining the conversation. I do support your position of disempowering the private central banking cartel that holds governments ransom across the globe. The rancid influence of the money lenders’ and their quest to enslave nations and their populations is difficult to thwart indeed. Politicians invariably “lend” their votes to those who pull the purse strings. Btw, thanks for sharing the position paper.

    I too find it surprising that more people don’t ask the question,”Why does the government need to borrow money from a private bank?” Just an observation, but critical thinking skills surely do seem to be on a rather short leash these days. In the working man’s defense however, by the time most people get home after spending 10 hours on their feet performing drone labor to enrich the coffers of the Walmart b.o.d., tuck their kids in, and grab a microwave dinner, I don’t think there’s much left in the tank to investigate the Bank for International Settlements and Basel III.

  10. skywanderer says:

    Very well done, as always, my friend.
    Great content and style, concise expression, spot-on video and the selected quote by Churchill is another eye-opener. Winston is no longer Sir of mine either, to say the least.

    I very much agree with the conclusion as well. History is the evidence – as well as present examples like Iceland’s – that only an unglobalised, social-democratic, welfare-based capitalism can deliver the goods for the whole population of a country, which DOES require nationalisation of the shared scare resources and governmental provision of essential services as free education and healthcare.

    As opposed to above the neoliberal global agenda of the elites, destroying the relative balance of the system, are proven to be destructive in every sense: politically, economically, socially, morally, cognitively, etc. John Galt’s blind advocates are unable to realise how much they work against themselves and how much they promote the classes who actually ruin them.

    Despite the sheer evidence that the neoliberal doctrine is flawed and destructive, the ruling classes declare it the only way and keep condemning welfare as a red threat, which leaves only with the following options.

    1) the neoliberal destruction is based on either the elite’s explicit intention to carry out a world-wide economic-financial genocide upon an ongoing conspiracy, and their reckless propaganda to equate a more functional social-democratic version of capitalism a red threat is purposeful deceit

    2) their stance reflects the profound ignorance of those who are otherwise the smartest con artists in finance and economics, that leaves us with no other choice than resuming to 1)
