“Murder as Tough Love”—the origins: 24 July 1943-24 July 2016 marks 73 Years since the RAF Firebombing of Hamburg, the start of the Hailstorm

On July 24, 1929, the Kellogg-Briand Pact, renouncing or “outlawing” war as an instrument of foreign policy, allegedly “went into effect”, having been signed in Paris on August 27 of the previous year.  Traditional International Law, including the first three “Geneva Conventions” of 1864, 1906, and 1929, had all recognized the legitimacy of warfare.  The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland signed all of these treaties.

But by some odd or incredible irony:

ON July 24, 1943, the British and the Royal Air Force, supported by their American allies, quite unilaterally turned off the lights of justice, cancelled and nullified the historic laws of war among civilized nations, and started the firebombing of German Cities, which would ultimately culminate (at least conceptually) in the incineration of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the newly invented atom bombs of the Americans.   It simply cannot be said that these were anything other than heinous war crimes.

OPERATION GOMORRAH: The nightmare of  the first firebombing at Hamburg is little known to the American people.  The culmination of this program in the firebombing of Dresden was only that—two months and two weeks before the end of the War, on Valentine’s Day 1944, the concept of “Murder as Tough Love” reached its pinnacle, as the British “loved” the people of one of the greatest and most cultured cities of all Europe “to death.”  

I strongly recommend this film to anyone willing to see “the rest of the story” as Paul Harvey used to say in his daily radio broadcasts.  How much you can stand to see is up to you, but World War II was NOT a “Good War”—it was a war of lies and deception whose sole purpose was the absolute destruction of Ancient Europe and its Traditions.  World War II was a “Historical Metaphor” meant to illustrate and serve as the foundation for many “Mythic Realities.”  

Trained in Anthropology and History, I feel it is my absolute obligation to turn the critical lens of structuralism and hermeneutic deconstruction on the history of the past 175 years since the birth of Marxism after the publication of the Communist Manifesto and the  pan-European uprisings of 1848.  

Revising the popular culture, the people’s understanding of the history of World War II is critical this year to understanding why we must reverse the course of history by adhering to Righteousness and Honor and the Truth Above all.

Aside from my background in Anthropology & History, I also have a background in law, and I think it is no minor point that in the “War Crimes'” Trials after the war, the rules of evidence were utterly and totally suspended so that a false story could be told and false myths supported through lies.  Anglo-American Justice has never recovered, I do not think, from the culture of lies hatched at Nuremberg.  

So in closing I will just offer another video endorsing a revisionist view of and perspective on the history of World War II:

A Lament for Austria, Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Hapsburg Dynasty, on the Centennial of the Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand

I cannot say whether my own fondness for the late 19th century/early 20th century results from the fact that I was, in large part, raised by my grandparents who were born and grew up in that last generation before World War I, but whether from personal prejudice or not, I think it is fair to say that the late 19th Century in Europe was the apogee, the Zenith, of Western Civilization, and it’s been straight downhill since 1914 for everything that one might value in the traditions of the West.  This decline actually began a half century earlier in the United States with its own fratricidal “rehearsal” for the 20th century in 1861-65.  But it was Europe’s “Great War” that brought the most beautiful things to an end, and one of the most beautiful things to be destroyed in that War was the Hapsburg Empire of Austria.  

Previous moments of glory for Hapsburg Austria had included (1) the reign of Maria Theresa, mother of Marie Antoinette, and the not entirely unrelated life and career of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, in the late 18th Century, (2) the final defeat of the Ottoman Turks on September 11, 1683 (yes, September 11 has always been a critical day in Christian-Muslim relations, apparently, or at least for over 330 years now), (3) the battle of Lepanto in the Gulf of Patras in the Ionian Sea off the western Greek Peloponnesian Peninsula (Peloponnesos) on October 7, 1571, and last but not least, (4) the first siege of Vienna by Suleiman the Magnificent which ended on October 11-12, 1529 with the retreat of the Ottoman forces, literally, from the Walls of Vienna.  

Hapsburg Austria was instrumental in saving Christendom, and so Austria’s final destruction as a world power in 1918 may be symbolic of the final demise and destruction of Western Europe as a truly Christian continent in the world.

Although everyone knows the title of Adolf Hitler’s Mein KampfI am willing to bet that few have read it closely enough to recognize why Der Fuhrer would hate the title of this essay and have no sympathy with its content.   In brief, Mein Kampf starts off with an indictment of Hitler’s native country, its role in history, and its very existence.  It’s pretty clear to me from his introductory diatribe against the “Eastern Empire” and its 700 year ruling dynasty, the Hapsburgs, that Hitler had only the shallowest comprehension of European history.  This failure to understand history was most notable in Hitler’s ill-fated invasion of Russia, the single “event” which turned his nearly victorious conquest of Europe into an abject failure, but that’s a separate topic for another essay.

On June 28-29, 2014, the Hundredth Year since Gavrilo Princip’s  (pardon my saying so) idiotic act of assassinating the Austrian heir apparent, I cry for the loss of Austria as a world power, for the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and for the Hapsburg Dynasty as among the most valuable and stabilizing elements of European history EVER.  

Though p’raps I may incur your blame, the things are few I would not do to convince you that the demise of Austria as a power in Central Europe is truly much more at the root of the troubles of the rest of the 20th Century (and even today) than is normally given credence or credit.  

(1) Hapsburg Austria was the most stable power on the Continent, with a longer-continuity of rulership (since their Rheinisch Swiss origins in the early 11th Century, taking charge of Austria in 1276, and remaining there until 1918) than any monarchy in all of Europe save that of England, and rendering Austria the most stable institutional configuration in Europe after the Vatican first and England Second.

(2)  Austria—etymologically “Österreich, the Eastern Empire” (or more metaphorically, the Empire of [Christian] Easter)—defined the eastern boundary of Western, Christian Europe for most the same six and a half centuries of Hapsburg domination.   Both before after the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks, the Armies and Navies of Austria kept the Saracens and other Muslims at bay, doing on the East Side of Europe for nearly three gifts of a millennium what Charlemagne did in 800 by defending the Pyrenees  Mountains on the South from the Islamic Caliphate of Cordoba in Spain.

(3)     Austria was a greater center of music and arts than any other region of the German speaking world during most of that time, but especially after A.D. 1600. Nuremberg in Bavaria was Vienna’s nearest competitor.  Berlin never amounted to much of anything until the later 19th Century.  Frankfurt, Mainz, and Cologne, and Württemberg all pale compared with Vienna, equal at most to Salzburg.  The monastery of Melk knows few if any peers anywhere in the world.  Mozart simply knows no peers anywhere.  Vienna during the 19th Century was a much more stable center of intellectual and scientific development than Paris, albeit quieter.

(4)    The Nineteenth Century, which effectively died on 28 June 1914 at Gavriolo Princip’s hand, was defined by the greatness of Vienna, Paris, and London in nearly equal terms.  But, remarkably, Austria, second oldest of the monarchies, and center in 1815 of the reactionary Congress of Vienna, where Prince Klemens Wenzel von Metternich orchestrated not only the end of the Napoleonic Era set the stage for a very conservative post-revolutionary generation-and-a-half Europe brought to an end by the uprisings of 1848 which followed the publication of Marx’ & Engels’ Communist Manifesto in February of that year.  

Ironically, in light of what followed in Europe, by 1914 Vienna, Austria was clearly the most liberal and most enlightened, free-thinking spot in Europe, even including England.  Just how liberal was Austria?  For the heinous crime of assassinating the Heir Apparent Archduke and his Duchess-Consort, Austria knew in 1914 no  more severe penalty than life imprisonment.  How liberal indeed? At least as amazing as the abolition of Capital Punishment in Austria, it is remarkable that Hitler’s homeland was not only not anti-Semitic, but Vienna had a higher status Jewish middle and professional class than anywhere else in Europe: Sigmund (and his daughter Anna) Freud, Alfred Adler, and Melanie Reises Klein in psychology and psychiatry, Gustav Mahler and Arnold Schönberg in music, among many others.   Some have speculated that “familiarity bred contempt” in the young Hitler who went to private school in Linz side-by-side with the much wealthier future Jewish-born philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (born, coincidentally, to Austria’s second wealthiest Jewish family, second only to the Austria Rothschild’s only 6 days after Hitler, on April 26, 1889, and thus also celebrating his 125th birthday this year).  The anti-Semitic scandal known as Dreyfus affair was French and Benjamin Disraeli, although the U.K.’s First (and only originally) Jewish Prime Minister, converted to Christianity and died a practicing Anglican.   Alfred Adler and Ludwig Wittgenstein also converted, but until 1938, Vienna was perhaps the most comfortable place in Europe to belong to the continent’s most traditionally detested minority.

(5)   So in short, Austria was far ahead of its time in so many ways: multi-cultural and embracing more “minor” nationalities than any other place, liberal in every social and cultural regard, and yet supremely civilized in the best traditions of Western European Christendom, led by a Kaiser of ancient lineage.  Multi-culturalism as defined in Austria-Hungary somehow did seem “degenerate” as it does today and certainly, not cause the degeneration of European civilization in Vienna, but offered a strong and positive “road not traveled by” (multiculturalism under German Christian leadership) since the collapse of that empire in 1918.

Austria’s natural and architectural beauty survived the brutality of allied bombing during World War II better than the rest of the German Third Reich, and Austria endures until today, little larger than Switzerland where the original castle Hapsburg was located not so far from the Rhein and the Carolingian relic principality of Liechtenstein (where some of my ancestors come from), but it is strange that Prague and Budapest were once respectively the Second and Third Cities of the Austrian Empire, Prague being Mozart’s preferred venue for premiers, and that Trieste was Austria’s harbor from which the great Austrian Navy was launched for roughly 400 years.  But by the truncation of Austria to its very German nub, Europe after Versailles lost the great balancing power of Central Europe, and the greatest historical “defender of the Faith” against Islamic and other Eastern Invasions….  

Of course, once again, in the 1950s through 70s, Vienna was once again at the gate of the terror that was the East (this time defined by Communism)….but it had lost all realistic power and position of leadership to do anything about it—leaving a power vacuum which ultimately was filled, ironically, by the American Empire, about as far to the West as one can imagine…. Had Austria survived, or could we reconstitute the Christian Led nature of Austrian multi-cultural liberalism, the world today would be a much better place.

There will be NO Private Property in America until we Stamp out Bank/Servicer Mortgage Fraud

I only VERY rarely recommend a website, but without hesitation or reservation I recommend “Mortgage Servicing Fraud” 

http://www.msfraud.org/LAW/lawarticles/lawarticles.html

and “Deadly Clear”: http://deadlyclear.wordpress.com

IF the United States Congress were in truly in the service of the people, instead of the service of the Banks, Congress would be holding non-stop “Committee of the Whole” hearings about why Americans are losing their homes.  But Congress does not in fact represent the people, but only the vested special interests which Congress helped to create.  

The American people should stand up and elect members of Congress who swear their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, on the Bible, to the people that they will investigate and punish the continuous, massive Mortgage Servicing Fraud which has been ongoing to greater or lesser degree since at least 1989 (Bush I).  We forget that Bush I was the President who earnestly pushed for Nuclear War and the rule of the United Nations in a “New World Order.”  In other words, Bush I (and Bush II) lived and worked in the service of World Communism while disguised as “Conservative Capitalist Republicans” endorsing central banking practices that trace their origins to Karl Marx, Frederich Engels, and Mayer Amstel Rothschild.  

Congress created the national banking associations monster (working closely with the banks and the Federal Executive, of course, since at least 1912).  Now to redeem American Democracy, Congress should force disgorgement of each National Banking Association’s wealth and compel divestiture and reconveyance to the Bank’s primary victims of all wrongfully foreclosed property.  I calculated, as did April Carrie Charney, in 2004-2006, that 80-90% of all Florida and Texas mortgages were held and serviced illegally.   In California, the figure cannot be less than 99.999%, allowing only for the tiniest fraction of “hard money” loans and mortgages with notes lawfully held by REAL private lenders.   I lack sufficient familiarity with practices in any other states to be certain of an exact figure.  Impressionistically, Louisiana and New Mexico seem to have a much greater number of hard money loans than any other states, from what I have seen and experienced.  New Jersey probably comes  close to California’s numbers.  Massachusetts and Arizona more likely approximate Florida’s.  

But the bottom line is obvious: nationwide, probably 90% of all mortgage foreclosures conducted since the late 1990s were and are illegal.  Undoing these is beyond the capacity of any state or federal court system at the present time.  Congress may need to create and appoint a special set of courts to unravel the mortgage mess created and growing exponentially ever since 1989-1994.

I would certainly push for the creation of such a special Court system carefully and properly to investigate the mortgage servicing and securitization fraud of the past quarter century, and to begin to restore the Fourth and Fifth Amendment guarantees of private property to reality.

Deploring the Fourth of July—the Lost Spirit of ’76—Mourning the Death of Liberty on July 4, 1863 and 150 Years Later

http://tenthamendmentcenter.com/2013/07/03/uncelebrate-the-fourth/#.UdSY9RYTElI

It is no accident, coincidence or mistake that the Battles of Gettysburg and Vicksburg weigh so heavily on the American mind and consciousness.  On this day in 1863, if the Confederate States of America ever had any chance of winning its independence or achieving a newly restored constitutional synthesis in the USA, that chance died along with thousands of men, in both blue and grey, on the fields and rolling hills and ridges of Southern Pennsylvania and the bluffs of the Mississippi River and the Yazoo Basin.   I love the memory of the South and honor the legacy of my Confederate Ancestors, but the memory of the freedom that existed before 1861 is bittersweet indeed.   The modern world is a world of cruel, industrial slaughter and subjugation.   The spirt of the times was different, very different, as David Brooks recorded in yesterday’s New York Timeshttp://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/02/opinion/brooks-why-they-fought.html?_r=0.  The key point of Brooks’ article may be the final paragraph (it was a Christian nation and the warriors believed in God, and their covenant with the Almighty):

“These letter writers, and many of the men at Gettysburg, were not just different than most of us today because their language was more high flown and earnest. There was probably also a greater covenantal consciousness, a belief that they were born in a state of indebtedness to an ongoing project, and they would inevitably be called upon to pay these debts, to come square with the country, even at the cost of their lives.

Makes today’s special interest politics look kind of pathetic.”

Today, in the midst of our world of special interest politics (most fairly called the politics of distraction and inattention to real detail), e now have antibiotics, air-conditioning, and refrigeration, we can even choose our own favorite brand of tooth paste, and as a direct consequence of these technological matters we live longer.  But (to paraphrase Patrick Henry) is life so dear or peace so sweet that we would live it as slaves in chains?  Was freeing four million slaves from formal and open slavery paid for the occult and hermeneutic (but much more severe) total slavery of a nation of 300 million?  We awaken each day to television and internet broadcasts which divert our attention from real problems.   We live and sleep in a soft cocoon of dissimulated reality.

The Tenth Amendment Center’s article above refers to modern America’s 4th of July celebration as a lie, a major deception.  This ten year old article is surely correct, but Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg address, delivered later that year after the smoke of the battle had long blown off, was a much greater day of deception.  Old “Uncle Abe’s” carefully collected and assembled words amounted to the height of hypocrisy and disingenuous political manipulation.  Overlooking the graves of the thousands of fallen soldiers and the Constitution for which they fought, if you can manage in your mind merely but absolutely, to invert every line of the speech my distant kinsman gave in November 1863—you will see the reality, “A new nation conceived in tyranny and dedicated to the proposition that all men should equally be chattel slaves in bondage to their government”.   I read his cynical text with horror, trying to imagine what the reaction to his true purposes would have been, had he had the nerve to announce the true provisions of the new Constitution which he was creating by and through that horrible war.   

I am not at all sure that the authors of the Tenth Amendment society were specifically thinking about the 150th anniversary of Vicksburg and Gettysburg 10 years ago.  But I know I am thinking about mourning those calamities today.  The Spirit of 76 is all but dead.  The heirs of the Revolution have lost control of the country, and the reality is that the United States “conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal” was the country being buried at Gettysburg, and now almost forgotten.

I have often visited the Battlefield at Vicksburg but never been to Gettysburg.  I think I would find the latter much too emotional, in part because of my hatred of the falsity of the Gettysburg Address and what it implied.  Six of my ancestors fought there.  One was taken a prisoner.  None of my ancestors fought at Vicksburg or in the Western or Trans-Mississippi theatres of war at all.

General Lee lost at Gettysburg, but much more significantly, General Grant won at Vicksburg.  Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia only had one reasonable strategy and that was to Capture Washington, D.C., and make IT the new Capital of the Confederacy.  He and Jubal Early came so close on so many occasions, but they failed.  Lee’s victory would have been largely symbolic—the North could have continued the War without Washington, D.C., although the boost to Confederate prestige by occupying the capital city would have been enormous, both at home and abroad, internationally.  

And it was the lack of solid international recognition (specifically England’s and France’s refusal, in the aftermath of the Marxist led and inspired uprisings of 1848, to which both Queen Victoria’s and Emperor Napoleon III’s governments correctly connected Lincoln’s and the Republican Party’s rise) which doomed the Confederacy more than any other single factor in the war, aside from the north’s sheer brute strength, and genuine brutality.  

Yankee brutality was apparent nowhere more than in the six week siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi, by Ulysses S. Grant, which reduced the population, military and civilian, to eating rats before the riverside fortress-town’s defenders’ final surrender on July 4, 1863.  The skirmishes between Seminary ridge and Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg suggested a kinder and gentler war, more humane and genteel, by comparison.  But on those two battlefields died the heart and soul of the American dream of liberty and freedom, never really to rise up again over the past 150 years.

Uncelebrating the Fourth

by  on July 3, 2013 in Featured 2

by Harry Browne, Originally written July 2003

Unfortunately, July 4th has become a day of deceit.

On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress formally declared its independence from Great Britain. Thirteen years later, after a difficult war to secure that independence, the new country was open for business.

It was truly unique – the first nation in all of history in which the individual was considered more important than the government, and the government was tied down by a written Constitution.

It was the one nation where you could live your life secure in the knowledge that no one would ask for your papers, where you weren’t identified by a number, and where the government wouldn’t extort a percentage of your income as the price of holding a job.

And so each year July 4th has been a commemoration of the freest country in history.

False Celebration

But the America that’s celebrated no longer exists.

The holiday oratory deceitfully describes America as though it were the unique land of liberty that once was. Politicians thank the Almighty for conferring the blessings of liberty on a country that no longer enjoys those blessings. The original freedom and security have disappeared, even though the oratory lingers on.

What made America unique is now gone, and we are much the same as Germany, France, England, or Spain, with:

  • confiscatory taxes,
  • a Constitution and Bill of Rights that are symbolic only – merely documents used to justify governmental actions that are in fact prohibited by those documents,
  • business regulated by the state in the most minute detail,
  • no limits on what Congress or the President might decide to do.

Yes, there are some freedoms left, but nothing like the America that was and nothing that you can’t find in a few dozen other countries.

The Empire

Gone, too, is the sense of peace and security that once reigned throughout the land. America, bound by two huge oceans and two friendly neighbors – was subject to none of the never-ending wars and destruction that plagued Europe and Asia.

Now, however, everyone’s business is America’s business. Our Presidents consider themselves the rulers of the world – deciding who may govern any country on earth and sending Americans to die enforcing those decisions.

Whereas America was once an inspiration to the entire world – its very existence was proof that peace and liberty really were possible – Americans now live in fear of the rest of the world and the rest of the world lives in fear of America.

The Future

Because the education of our children was turned over to government in the 19th century, generations of Americans have been taught that freedom means taxes, regulations, civic duty, and responsibility for the whole world. They have no conception of the better life that could exist in a society in which government doesn’t manage health care, education, welfare, and business – and in which individuals are free to plot their own destinies.

Human beings are born with the desire to make their own decisions and control their own lives. But in most countries government and social pressures work to teach people to expect very little autonomy.

Fortunately, in America a remnant has kept alive the ideas of liberty, peace, and self-respect – passing the concepts on from generation to generation. And so today millions of Americans know that the present system isn’t the right system – that human beings aren’t born to serve the state and police the world.

Millions more would be receptive upon being shown that it’s possible to have better lives than what they’re living now.

Both groups need encouragement to quit supporting those who are taking freedom away from them.

Become a member and support the TAC!

You and I may not have the money and influence to change America by ourselves, but we can keep spreading the word – describing a better society in which individuals are truly free and government is in chains (instead of the opposite).

And someday we may reach the people who do have the money and influence to persuade tens of millions of Americans to change our country for the better.

I don’t know that it’s going to happen, but I do know it’s possible. I know that the urge to live one’s own life is as basic in human beings as the will to live and the desire to procreate. If we keep plugging away, we may eventually tap into that urge and rally the forces necessary to restore the real America.

And then the 4th of July will be worth celebrating again.

Secret Securitization is the New “Mode of Production”—the Key to the Modern Economy—the vehicle for the change in “mode of production” which the Communists have been waiting for, planning, for 165 years since 1848

Writing today from Mantoloking, Ocean County, New Jersey

My thanks to Savvy-Gal Michelle for alerting me to the latest monstrosity to be handed down by a California District Court of Appeal.  The California Court of Appeal for the Fourth Appellate District, Division Three (based 601 West Santa Ana Boulevard in Santa Ana, Orange County, California 92701) has “certified” its May 17, 2013, opinion in Jenkins v. JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., (G046121)(Super.Ct.30-2011-00438159) “for publication” and hence for precedential value and citation as “the law of the land” of the People’s Republic of California (available on-line at http://www.courts.ca.gov/opinions-slip.htm?Courts=G and attached here: Jenkins v. JP Morgan Chase Bank NA).

To say I am surprised would be a lie.  To say that I am angry and deeply troubled by this country’s seemingly inexorable March Towards Pure (Marxist) Communism would also be a lie.  The Jenkins opinion does nothing new except to build upon outrageous judicial statements of the “lack of rights” of the people of California to know or even ask with whom they are dealing with, over the past two years.  Among the most pernicious of these decisions are Gomes v. Countrywide Home Loans, Inc., 192 Cal.App.4th 1149, 1153 (2011) and Herrera v. Federal National Mortgage Association, 205 Cal.App.4th 1495 (2012).   (Gomes v. Countrywide, 121 CalRptr3d 819 OPINION Gomes v Countrywide Home Loans Inc Feb_18_2011).

The repeated and practical crux of it all is articulated in these two paragraphs from Jenkins v. JP Morgan Chase:

“Importantly, the provisions setting forth California‘s nonjudicial foreclosure scheme (§§ 2924-2924k) ― ̳cover every aspect of [the] exercise of [a] power of sale contained in a deed of trust.‘ ̳The purposes of this comprehensive scheme are threefold: (1) to provide the [beneficiary-creditor] with a quick, inexpensive and efficient remedy against a defaulting [trustor-debtor]; (2) to protect the [trustor- debtor] from wrongful loss of the property; and (3) to ensure that a properly conducted sale is final between the parties and conclusive as to a bona fide purchaser.‘‖ (Gomes, supra, 192 Cal.App.4th at p. 1154.) ―Significantly, ̳[n]onjudicial foreclosure is less expensive and more quickly concluded than judicial foreclosure, since there is no oversight by a court, ―[n]either appraisal nor judicial determination of fair value is required,‖ and the debtor has no postsale right of redemption.‘‖ (Id. at p. 1155.)

Although a defaulting debtor is free to pursue a judicial action for ―misconduct arising out of a nonjudicial foreclosure sale when [such a claim is] not inconsistent with the policies behind the statutes‖ (California Golf, L.L.C. v. Cooper (2008) 163 Cal.App.4th 1053, 1070, italics added), due to the ― ̳exhaustive nature‘‖ of this scheme, California appellate courts have refused to read any additional requirements into the nonjudicial foreclosure statute.‖ (Gomes, supra, 192 Cal.App.4th at p. 1154, fn. omitted.) As one appellate court stated: ―It would be inconsistent with the comprehensive and exhaustive statutory scheme regulating nonjudicial foreclosures to incorporate another unrelated cure provision into statutory nonjudicial foreclosure proceedings.‖ (Moeller, supra, 25 Cal.App.4th at p. 834.)”

The secrecy (and non-accountability) afforded by this approach to non-judicial foreclosure in California is appropriate to the essentially clandestine nature of securitization, which I think we can now safely call “Securitization” the new post-capitalist mode of production to be used for transforming ownership of all private property into government-sponsored corporate-collective ownership “in common.”   Under securitization with rapid foreclosure, no one ever really owns property, but everyone owes a debt to everyone else in society.  I think this really is the communist formula: “From each according to his ability to each according to his need.”  

Although Marx is popularly thought of as the originator of the phrase, the Critique of the Gotha program was published 27 years after the Communist Manifesto of 1848 and a mere 8 years before Marx’ death in 1883 (Marx died on 14 March of same year as Richard Wagner, who died one month earlier on 13 February).  The slogan “from each according to his ability to each according to his need” was common to the socialist movement and was first used by Louis Blanc in 1839, in “The organization of work”.  At that time, in May of 1875, it was probably unforeseeable how perfectly the concept of securitization of private property would lead to and fit with communism, but it seems clear that Marx would have applauded the “genius” of securitization as a tool to abolish private property.

However, the complete paragraph included as part of Karl Marx’ May 1875 Critique of the Gotha Program is particularly relevant to the path down which 20th Century and now 21st Century Corporate Communism have led us.  Offering perhaps Marx’s most detailed pronouncement on programmatic matters of revolutionary strategy, the document discusses the “dictatorship of the proletariat,” (whose name we now know to be “Barack Hussein Obama” the period of transition from capitalism to communism (almost over as of 2013), proletarian internationalism (*which we have come to call “Corporate Globalism”), and the party of the working class (which we have learned to accept as divided, in the USA between Democratic and Republican “factions” or “flavors” or “Labor” and “Conservative” in Great Britain).

In a higher phase of communist society, after the enslaving subordination of the individual to the division of labor, and therewith also the antithesis between mental and physical labor, has vanished; after labor has become not only a means of life but life’s prime want; after the productive forces have also increased with the all-around development of the individual, and all the springs of co-operative wealth flow more abundantly—only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be crossed in its entirety and society inscribe on its banners: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!

(“Jeder nach seinen Fähigkeiten, jedem nach seinen Bedürfnissen!”) As Karl Marx here prophesized, Corporate Communism (in Western Europe and North America, at any rate) aims to bring down the “division of labor” in society and “therewith” abolish “the antithesis between mental and physical labor.”  

Of course, this is one boundary that can never really be crossed—someone or something (robots?) will always have to do physical labor—and once robots are capable of doing all our physical labor, they may well see fit to do away with us and become non-consuming communists themselves (as so many science fiction scenarios have already envisioned).  

In the meantime, it is counties like China, Vietnam, Korea, Bangladesh and India where the consequences of the Corporate abolition of the “division of labor” in society have taken root.  SLAVE LABOR of the masses of billions of Asians to serve the tiny elite of the Communist Party and its allies is the modern reality of East, Southeast, and Southern Asia generally.    

Communism fulfills the dreams of (for the rich and developed nations) abolishing the antithesis between manual and physical labor. But for the rest of the world, the lavish and leisurely life of the beneficiaries of communism in the first world visits all the most nightmarish scenarios of inequality—inequality of wealth, inequality of physical labor, inequality of leisure time, inequality of environmental quality and comfort—it goes on, on the original populations who were slaughtered into conformity with “Communism Triumphant” before Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger first sold America’s soul to the PRC.  

But in spite of this disconformity of reality, the west is constantly emulating the “eusocial” life of the East.  Even in that bastion of “Capitalism” known as “Corporate TV advertising and Corporate Culture) icons of modern American life from the red -T-shirts of Bank of America Employees to the round (quasi-Asiatic) expression and look of the Progressive Insurance Girl, who announces triumph after triumph of the workers’ progress and program….consciously emulate, import, and trans-substantiate the spirit of Maoism into America.

What is the answer? the antidote?
