An Anarchist Guide to… ACAB

I have quibbles with some of this, but I think she is largely correct.

The problem of Greece is not only a tragedy. It is a lie.

Terrific piece save that the Euro is not the problem–capitalism is the problem. The currency is merely the battlefield on which this latest skirmish in the class war is being fought.

And yes, alas, the electoral charade: When will they ever learn. Whether Syriza was a legitimate Left unity project or the stage-mothered concoction of the Troika doesn’t matter as the results are the same. There is no benefit in mice building better mouse traps.

President Obama Accepts Slavery In Order To Win TPP Trade Deal

This is capitalist decadence in full bloom. There are moments when the moral squalor at its core comes into view.

As Marx correctly observed:

Capitalism comes to us drenched in blood and filth.

West-Putin Feud?

Gazprom-Shell Partnership

Gazprom’s CEO Alexei Miller told Reuters that the two companies may even go further by agreeing to asset swaps. By expanding their cooperation, Miller says “we will be creating a global strategic partnership” with Shell.

Gazprom is state owned and Shell is jointly owned by the Rothschilds and the  Dutch royal family.

Well it’s a good thing I’m not the kind of guy to say “I told you so.”

It’s a charade folks, and it has been from the beginning.

Happy Fourth?

By the crude bridge that arched the flood,

Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled.

Here once embattled farmers stood,

And fired the shot heard round the world.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Unfortunately for those heroic farmers their revolution was hijacked by the planter class who used the growing discontent with the Crown to insinuate themselves into power after the Brits had been vanquished. The real revolution, the farmers’ revolution—face-to-face democracy, local sovereignty, self-governance by popular consensus, publicly owned banks etc.—which flourished before and during the war, was ruthlessly crushed by a cabal of plutocrats known to posterity as the Founding Fathers. The latter shut down the commoners’ assemblies, the public land banks and all other forms people power and instituted an oligarchic regime as delineated by their Constitution.

And two hundred years later their legatees are still in power.

So that American Revolution failed, maybe next time…
