"An Age of Hell is now upon us:When riots come to America, don't blame the rioters at the bottom. Blame the rioters at the top of the political and economic pyramid who have ransacked the public purse and stolen trillions of dollars from tax-paying American citizens.
The earthly body pierced with spears." - Arthur Rimbaud, 'On The Subject of Flowers: Remarks, Addressed To The Poet,' July 14, 1871. (1).
"A culture like ours -- a culture so uniformly dedicated to inflicting pain, to cruelty, to violence, to destruction, to creating hell on earth -- does not deserve to survive for another moment. Many signs lead one to believe that it may not survive much longer." - Arthur Silber, "A Culture Dedicated to Creating Hell on Earth," November 21, 2011.
"The destruction of our basic liberties, the overthrow of our Republic, and basic protections, and checks and balances, is in overdrive right now. And the good news is finally people are starting to wake up, but they have no idea on average just how serious our straits are. Now, there is a good side to that and there is a bad side to that. Because the ruling class are so openly criminal and sloppy and out of control, it should be easy to wake people up fully and to bring these crooks to justice. People should realize we've got a completely illegitimate global government structure and the United States is one of the main hearts to it all. And only by fully awakening can we turn things around." - Alex Jones, 'The SHTF A Long Time Ago!!!' January 28, 2012.
"Well, gentlemen, when the shit hits the fan, some guys run and some guys stay." - From the film 'Scent of a Woman,' (1992).
"The fears we know
Are of not knowing. Will nightfall bring us
Some awful order. . . ?" - W. H. Auden, 'The Age of Anxiety,' (1947). (2).
As a civilization, we have more to fear from reckless elites who pillage the earth and obstruct justice in the name of stability and order than from dirty and stupid rioters.
We can't pretend that stability and order exists within the West when the truth about 9/11, the crime of the ages, has remained buried in the mainstream world for a decade and counting.
A world order that is based on terror, lies, mass murder of innocent citizens, and the most sophisticated propaganda campaign in human history, is no order at all.
The West and the world is in a state of chaos and lawlessness. Whoever possesses the most guns has the last say. Anarchy and madness reigns around the world.
Absolute hell is the local and global environment that has been created since 9/11 by the Maoists in Washington, who agree with Mao that, "political power grows out of the barrel of a gun."
By comparison, the Founding Fathers of America believed that government power is based on the consent of the governed. If they defended that belief today on American streets they would be labeled domestic terrorists by the hijacked government and media, detained in secret prisons, and killed.
The leaders of America and the West are far from the best men that America and the West have to offer to the world. Individuals who have no sense of shame or guilt lead the highest institutions of Western civilization, whether political, academic, scientific, medical, or media.
The scum and the insane rise to the top in modern society, as William S. Burroughs, John Lennon, Allen Ginsberg, Robert Anton Wilson, Terence McKenna, and many others have all said.
Ginsberg told TVO host Allan Gregg in an interview in the 1990s:
"Since the whole caste of government and media is not transparent but opaque, built on secrecy and manipulativeness, the area of poetry then becomes a free area where people can actually not be paranoid, where understanding what's been said is being said for real.In the last four decades, America's crazy political leaders have given America and the world two of the most horrific and criminal wars in human history: the illegitimate Global War on Drugs and the illegitimate Global War on Terror. Trillions of dollars have been wasted by governments, and hundreds of thousands of innocent human beings have perished as a result of these two insane global wars.
In 1945, Kerouac came over to my room at Columbia. . .And I had a new poem and I read it to him. And it was too late for him to go home. So he stayed in my room, we had our underwear on, and I was a virgin. Nothing happened. And we slept together. And then somehow somebody came to visit, the dean of student faculty bursted into the room and found us in bed together and assumed what would for them would be the worst, for me would've been the best, for them would've been the worst cause they were so homophobic in those days.
So I was called down to the dean's office and he said to me, 'Mr Ginsberg, I hope you realize the enormity of what you've done.' And I looked at him and I realized he was completely mad. And he was running Columbia College. So I said this is going to be a funny scene. So I said 'Yes sir, I'm completely ashamed of myself, what can I do,' but I realized he was nuts. And, to a great extent, the entire society was nuts. And I felt kind of liberated like a man who was in the land of the sleepwalkers who could see, or the land of the blind who can see. But not only on that, but on many, many subjects like I'd smoke the grass, a little bit of grass, and I realized the government party line was stupid. Like some kid in Russia who knew that the Stalinist party line was fraud.
Much of the American party line, the official, New York Times even, to the CIA and the state department, the narcotics bureau, and the whole police agency, is actually racist, prejudiced and corrupt.
So then it becomes fun. . .I'm trying to wake these people up, they're sleepwalking." (3).
The elite strategists who manufactured both wars from scratch have created an age of perpetual darkness and horror.
Allan Gregg gave a very important lecture in November 2011 called, "On Authenticity – How the Truth Can Restore Faith in Politics and Government," in which he said:
"Even someone with only a passing interest in current affairs would know our political leaders are in big trouble.
A few years ago, Seth Meyers of Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live developed a routine where he lampooned politicians by simply asking “Really!” …. no narrative; not even a snappy punch-line; simply a run a clip of a politician followed by an incredulous “Really!” Jon Stewart has taken this vein of comedy one step further where the joke doesn’t even require speech … just show the politician speaking; pause for a moment; and arch an eye brow. Both routines are invariably followed by gales of laughter. Not only is the joke on our elected leaders, it seems they are the only ones left on the planet who don’t get it.
Most often short of outright lies, our elected leaders seem to have become congenitally unable to speak the unvarnished truth – and everyone knows it. Like the travel agent, or restaurant critic, our leaders run the risk of becoming moribund because they have not been able to modulate their behaviour or find their voice in this new reality." (4).
The death of political authority in the West has been a long and continuous process, and mostly a quiet affair.
In her book, 'Jung and Tarot: An Archetypal Journey,' Sallie Nichols said that many Western poets foresaw the crisis of authority and the madness of modern civilization. She wrote:
"Since the turn of the century, our poets have seen the darkness coming. Over fifty years ago, William Butler Yeats warned:The elitist manipulators of human destiny and human history know that they have lost the trust of the people of the planet, but they're confident that an authoritarian global government will solve all their problems. They speak of a "new age" and a "new world order" and they plan to start World War III by attacking Iran which would mark the end of this dead age.Turning and turning in the widening gyreWhat better description of our present dilemma? The infamous "Watergate horrors" of our outer history were but tiny ripples in a sea of confusion and corruption in which the inner spirit of men everywhere has become engulfed. The ceremony of innocence is indeed drowned, and anarchy is loosed upon the world. As Yeats foresaw, the debacle is no longer merely a matter of greed and lust for power -- these are peripheral concerns. It is "the centre" that will not hold. Something is dead wrong at the core of life. We are empty of meaning." (5).
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Since war is the father of change, the mad men in the Western power elite need their big war with Iran to advance their plot for a new world order.
