Religion and War

Religion is a great thing.

There’s a lot of value in it.

There’s also a lot of bullshit.

The main thing that’s wrong with religion is that people don’t even know why they’re in it.

They’re in it because their parents shanghaied them into that religion when they were little children.

They were a child; they had no choice.

Their parents told them: This is where you’re going, this is what you’re going to believe, and we’re not taking any answer-back.

It was compulsory.

Back in the day, if you challenged your parents you got spanked.

You believe what you believe not necessarily because it’s the best thing to believe, but because your parents browbeat and propagandized you into that religion.

So what we have today are millions of people walking around as true believers, thinking that their religion is the greatest thing since apple pie, and the only reason they believe it is because a) their parents told them so, and b) they never had the time, guts, nor inclination to question it.

Why don’t the majority people have the guts to question their religion?

They don’t have the guts to question it because they don’t want to question it.

They don’t want to question it because they fear being ostracized by their family and their friends, or that they will go to hell if they do.

And because they don’t question their religion we live in a world that is less workable than it could be.

There are only a small percentage of the people who have the courage, the guts and the desire to question a religion, to adopt a new religion, or move outside of it.

Consequently, if you are a rebel, if you have the guts to move to a different faith, you can see that religious wars are stupid.

Unfortunately, you are in the minority.

Compounding the misery is that the politicians use religion in order to sanctify the wars.

The politicians understand that it’s very difficult to sell war on the evidence. Of course it’s difficult. That’s because almost all wars are fought for money. Regular people want to know why we can’t just share. Leaders and politicians aren’t in the habit of sharing. That’s because there is something wrong with them. They have a medical problem.

So what they do is sell war through the irrationality of religion.

God approves of this war.

By fighting this war, they say, you are defeating the infidel.

That’s an easy sell. Linking God and war is one of their magic tricks.

And that’s why you see so many reverends, ministers, imams, and priests cozying up to the politicians, engaging them at prayer breakfasts.

What a joke that is!

Those prayer breakfast exist to sanctify war.

So if you’re living in war, or a constant state of war, which we currently do, which the Romans did, which the British did, you now know why.

You were browbeaten and propagandized into your religion. Furthermore, you were taught that your religion was the one true religion, and that everyone else’s was a mortal threat to your security.

Thus war.

Thus big bucks for our crummy leaders and their puppet-masters in Corporate America.

What’s It All About, Alfie?

Why is this illegal immigration occurring here in the United States?

Why is illegal immigration occurring in the United Kingdom?

Are you surprised?

The British people are. They want to know why, after disengaging the UK from the European Union, their leaders are allowing immigrants to flood into their country faster than Prince Andrew can fuck an underage girl?

Would you be surprised to know that the United States and Great Britain move lockstep politically and economically?

Sure, there are always differences, but for the most part they move together.

Why is that?

What is going on here?

What’s going on here is that the corporate cabal that has bought off our politicians is the same corporate cabal that has bought off British politicians.

The politicians don’t give a fuck what the people think. Only at election time do they give half a fuck, if there is such a thing.

The politicians do what the corporate cabal wants them to do.

In the United States that corporate cabal is the Harvard Cabal. In the United Kingdom it’s the Oxford Cabal.

They work together. They are the twin towers of global war and global exploitation.

And those motherfuckers want those immigrants to flood into the country.


Why would they want all these immigrants?

For many reasons.

Number one, they act as a source of cheap labor to keep emerging unions in check.

They also act as a source of cheap labor for migrant work.

But those are not the main reason I suspect.

The main reason is to act as a source of military recruits for their next war.

Let’s face it, the next generation of pampered billionaire parasites has to be fed.

Wag, wah, wah, screams the useless child of the ruling billionaire elitist, where’s my war. I want to be a multibillionaire too, mommy.

Not to worry, son, we are engineering a brand new war for you.

Stop, I want to ingrain a word into your head.


What’s that you say?

Sahel is the sub-Saharan region in Africa.

I fear that is the next major battleground for our global killing machine.

There must be a lot of resources there.

The French are already there. If the French are there the Americans can’t be far behind. And I wouldn’t be surprised if American troops already are there.

If we do go there to fight a major war, these newly arrived immigrants will be used to fight that war.

It’s a new form of colonialism. It’s called neocolonialism. You go into a nation that gained its independence in the middle of the last century, and you balkanize it. You balkanize it through war. Different indigenous factions will control nonvital territories. You will control the vital territories that yield the booty. You will then directly confiscate the assets for yourself.

The governments of the United States and the United Kingdom will simply make these new immigrants an offer they can’t refuse: Fight our war for us and we will give you citizenship with no questions asked.

That’s a winner for the elites.

It’s not much of a winner for the immigrants and their families. Many of those immigrants will die in this useless war to come.

And it won’t get any better for the people of United Kingdom or the United States. Your lot in life will grow smaller.

Trillions of dollars will be printed to give to the ruling elite who own the corporations that supply the war machine.

As I’ve stated many times before it’s not just defense contractors who will make money. All corporations will make money.

All corporations will make money because when you fight a war on another continent, you have to re-create Corpus Christi, Texas and everything in it from the ground up in order to fight that war.

And I mean everything. Roads, infrastructure, housing, everything in the housing, pictures, lamps, magazines, televisions, coffee tables, chairs, pillows, food, ice cream, paper clips, are you getting the idea?


Even McDonalds and Starbucks are in on the game.

Who’s going to get rich in that?

The owners of the corporations. The ruling class. The monied class.

Who’s not going to get rich?


That’s what the illegal immigration is all about, Alfie. It hurts you in so many ways. It keeps labor prices down. It keeps you fighting with each other over illegal immigration. It enriches the large corporations. It keeps war going.

Sayonara, Suckers.

No End to War

Why can we not have an end to war?

Why will war always be with us?

Principally because a) men have the freedom to choose poorly, b) there is no absolute correlation between wealth and intelligence, c) wealth accumulation is often a sickness that clouds wise decision making, and d) wealthy people make the decision to go to war.

This leads us to the leadership of the United States of America today.

What we have ruling America today are wealthy people, addicted to wealth, blinded by greed, enamored with war, who choose to make poor decisions that will ultimately harm them and ourselves.

Our current leaders are unable to temper their greed.

Their greed has blinded them.

The war in the Ukraine is of their doing.

America owns that war and the resultant destruction.

The war can end tomorrow.

Our wealthy who control the leadership in Ukraine can make a deal with Vladimir Putin tonight.

Here is the deal.

Ukraine will be divided into two parts by the Dnieper river.

The western part, West Ukraine, will join NATO. The eastern part, East Ukraine, will be controlled by ethnic Russians. It will not join NATO, nor will it ever join NATO.

East Ukraine will become the buffer zone between NATO and Russia.

This is the smart compromise.

This is the compromise that a prudent decision maker would make.

Our leaders are not prudent.

They are blinded by their greed and the false delusional beliefs they have about themselves.

We live in a Kim Jong-Un society.

Our leaders believe that they are infallible living gods who are entitled to rule all that exists before them.

The world belongs to them, and that’s it.

They love conquest, and they love the war in the process.

War makes them money whether they win the war or not.

If they lose the war, they go on to fight another. And another.

Our leaders win either way.

Leaders never pay for their crimes until we kill them.

Until that day comes, we suffer and live through interminable war.

Waging Peace

Is there some reason on God’s green earth why we cannot wage peace instead of war?

I don’t get it.

If we need to, why don’t we pay defense contractors and other corporations to not foment and participate in war.

You heard me right. Why don’t we pay them not to make armaments.

We pay farmers to not grow crops, so why can’t we pay corporations to not wage war?

I’ll go you one better.

Why don’t we pay arms manufactures and corporations to make everything that they need for war, bundle it up, put it on the USS Ronald Reagan, float it out to the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and dump it off?

What’s the difference between dumping all that junk in the ocean and wasting it on war?

There’s not a dime’s worth a difference because the wars we fight don’t benefit us.

In fact, by not fighting the war there would be more of us alive.

Somehow we are going to have to get off this addiction to war.

If we’re not going to act on any of those two solutions, then why don’t we pay the manufacturers to re-tool so that we can build things that we need here in the United States.

We can make a deal with the corporations: you’re not going to lose a dime. We are going to pay you the money that you got before for waging war plus an extra 10% in order to make things that we need here in the United States.

Is there some reason why we can’t do this?

I need to be educated.

Tell Me Again

Tell me again why it wasn’t possible for the United States to work with Vladimir Putin.

He was clearly the smartest guy in the room.

One only needed to watch him handle a press conference to see that this was so.

The man can speak multiple languages, and he doesn’t need a Teleprompter to give an answer.

Our presidents can barely babble their own name in English with the aid of a Teleprompter.

So why wouldn’t we work with him?

Why would we want to make him an enemy?

He does a better job for sticking up for the rights of his own people than our leaders do.

We could use a guy like that on our side.

Maybe that’s why our leaders made an enemy of him.

They don’t want anybody looking out for the welfare and benefit of Americans.

Plus our leaders want to make sure that there is plenty of justification for the military industrial complex.

If they have Vladimir Putin as an enemy, why that’s all the more reason to build ships and bases all over the world.

What’s wrong with that you ask?

What’s wrong with that is that you don’t benefit.

The citizens of empire don’t get wealthier; they become poorer.

The people who get rich are the people at the top.

The sun never set on the British empire, and it never rose upon the slums of London.

As the British empire was growing, regular British people couldn’t get out of there fast enough.

The immigration rates into the United States were humongous.

During the 1800s, America was not an international empire builder.

Thank God.

Consequently, people could generally keep the fruits of their labors.

Unfortunately our leaders, the Harvard Cabal, cozied up to the British and adopted their bad habits.

One of those bad habits is the necessity of tear-assing all over the world so as to exploit other people.

Yes, there is something wrong with our leaders.

They are physically and mentally ill.

They aren’t satisfied with making a little bit of money.

Their greed gene is always on; their compassion gene is always off.

They’re biologically sick.

One of their big scams is to create war.

When there’s war, there’s plenty of need to make stuff to fight the war.

Hence the conflict with Vladimir Putin.

Our leaders could’ve easily worked with Vladimir Putin.

But they didn’t.

They didn’t because for them there’s no money in peace.

In peacetime, we win.

In peacetime, they lose.

Hence the conflict with Putin.

That’s what it’s all about, baby.

Cross the Rubicon

Have you crossed the Rubicon?

Have you come to see the truth behind our leaders?

Have you come to see what war is really about?

Have you come to see that our leaders are not good people like you?

Until you have crossed the Rubicon, you will always be fooled.

Until you have crossed the Rubicon, you will always be mystified by current events.

War is about making money for the criminal elite.

It’s always been about making money for the criminal elite.

Saving democracy? Preserving the American way?

That’s for the people the elites dismiss as chumps. That’s the rubric they use to sell war to people who haven’t crossed the Rubicon.

Do yourself a favor. Cross the Rubicon.

You will be glad you did.

For the first time in your life, you will be able to see clearly.

Don’t be stupid like I was.

Don’t waste decades of your life.

You don’t have to be stupid because I was already stupid for you.

War is an end to itself.

Our leaders couldn’t care less about winning a war anymore.

War is the endgame.

War enables all US corporations to participate and make a pile of cash at your expense.

To fight a war, you have to build the equivalent of Corpus Christi, Texas over there in the middle of a field 12,000 miles away.

You have to copy and build everything that exists in Corpus Christi.

Whatever you can point to in Corpus Christi has to be re-created over there.

That includes ice cream, gypsum board, lights, electrical wire, asphalt paving products, buildings, photo frames, everything.

Keep going.

Pens, televisions, coffee tables, clocks, breakfast pastries, sofas, roofing tiles, wall paintings.

I’m just randomly freely associating and ripping off items that are before me as I look around the room.

Everything that you can see, everything that you can name has to be re-created.

That’s why corporations love war.

It’s an economic program.

It’s a bad economic program.

But it is the program of our leaders.

Once you cross the Rubicon, you will come to see this.

You will come to see that the battle between Republicans and Democrats is a dog and pony show created to distract you.

You will come to see that the battles and choices that are presented to you are false.

The current phony battle is the battle over Ukraine.

You are being led to believe that Russia, led by the evil Vladimir Putin, is an ogre that must be defeated.

Putin is just another name on Americas long list of enemies. Stalin, Hitler, Hirohito, Mussolini, Saddam Hussein, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot, Mao, Idi Amin, Muammar Qaddafi, Kim Jong Un, Kim Jong Un’s father and grandfather, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Nicholas Maduro, Daniel Ortega, Salvador Allende, Jacobo Arbenz, Patrice Lamumba, Sukarno, the Ayatollah Khomeini, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Xi Jinping and many, many more.

Now, if you knew a person who had that many enemies, wouldn’t you start asking if there was something wrong with that person? Wouldn’t it be natural to ask if the person with that many enemies was doing something to create those enemies?

Maybe that person is a greedy bully?

Media “experts” never ask that question.

Instead media “experts” tell you that defending Ukraine is as an existential war that must be fought.

Russia is as an evil Empire, they say, an adversary of goodness and decency.

This is false.

Russians are not evil.

They are just like you. They desire peace also. Their leaders are playing the same game on them that our leaders are playing on us.

Russia is a civilization that has contributed vastly to the benefit of the world.

Russia is not a backwater of animals and barbarians. That’s a lie that leaders use to sucker you into a war.

Russians have excelled in physics, literature, ballet, chemistry, sports, music, you name it.

Anton Checkhov was Russian.

Mendelyev who discovered the periodic table in chemistry was Russian.

Baryshnikov and Nureyev were Russians.

Why would we want to wipe out the Russians?

We have nothing against the Russian people.

Yet today as we speak, Mark Levin and Sean Hannity play the Russia card. They play up the same nonsense that was played up under Ronald Reagan: Russia the ogre. Russia the destroyer.

This isn’t the case.

Hannity and Levin are puppets of the powers that be. They wouldn’t be where they were unless they were puppets.

If they weren’t puppets, the elites would get rid of them.

They both make a lot of cash selling themselves to the huge number of people they reach on television.

So do their counterparts on the so-called other side of the political spectrum.

Listen to me. Anybody who benefits off the national agenda cannot be trusted.

Hannity and Levin exist to keep the phony battle going.

They become fabulously wealthy as you fight this stupid battle.

Wake up, Mommy.

Wake up, Poppy.

Cross the Rubicon.

Quit being a puppet. Quit being a stooge. Quit being putty in their hands.

Wake up and see the truth.

War is an endgame to itself, a profit maker for the phony crony capitalists in Corporate America, an issue distractor for our phony leaders who refuse to make your life better by enabling a true free market which can provide better paying jobs, more money in your pocket, a peaceful life, affordable education and better, more inexpensive healthcare insurance.

Our Stupid Leaders

Did you see Joe Biden’s latest tough-guy move. Here it is right here.

Our leaders just don’t get it.

What don’t they get?

The goal is to create friends – not enemies.

The very fact that we have to go after someone and kill him because he’s an enemy is an indictment of our leadership.

The United States creates enemies – not friends.

Furthermore, we took an individual out in another sovereign nation – not our own.

We just invited ourselves in and assumed that we could do what we wanted to do.

Hey, that’s what we do.

We’re Americans.

We own the fucking world.

Wait a minute now.

How would we feel if other countries came into our country and took out our leaders?

It’s not going to take too long before the enemies that our leaders have created do just that.

The United States has a bad habit of thinking it can go around the world and kick ass without retaliation.

That’s a mistake.

Unfortunately, it’s the people of the United States who are going to pay for the stupidity of its leaders.

Do you wanna know something?

When I was young in my 20s, I didn’t think this way.

I was a hawk.

I used to watch these Vietnam veterans who were against the Vietnam war, and I thought they were traitors.

I thought they were hurting America.

I was wrong.

The Value of Honor

Right now, right at this moment, I am watching a ceremony on television that I watched as a child when I visited Washington, DC.

I am at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and soldiers are walking through the ceremony.

The soldiers are immaculately dressed, and they perform admirably.

It is a beautiful ceremony, but I must guard myself to not take the wrong lessons away from it.

Washington can seduce you when you visit there.

There are many memorials and monuments worth seeing.

They represent the history of our country, and it is a country that we can be proud of.

But these monuments also have the power to destroy.

Many of these monuments were built by Americans of a different generation who did not think the way we now think.

Our country has drifted far from its religious underpinnings.

When our antecedents built memorials, God, and all the good that God represents, was foremost in their minds.

The power of Caesar was not.

And yet, the white marble, the vastness of the buildings, their sheer weight and size, can so be easily misconstrued as to what these monuments represent.

Lincoln was a godly man who was not so much concerned as to whether God was on his side but whether he was on God’s side.

His memorial must convey that.

As must the others.

But we are not of Lincoln’s era.

Nor that of the Founding Fathers.

And so these monuments have taken on a different meaning.

They are now a catalogue of sites that Americans check off as part of an indoctrination program into America’s might and power.

Our news media forever crows about America as the most powerful nation on earth.

As do our leaders.

The President of the United States is regularly feted as the most powerful man on the face of the earth.

Did Lincoln shower himself with such illusions?

The monuments are now part of the supporting cast to justify our Presidents’ decisions on waging war around the globe.

The monuments sanctify us, purify us, justify us.

But that was not their intent when they were first constructed.

Monuments and memorials do not exist for war. Nor do they exist to create heroes.

Nor do they serve as a pretext for vengeance or domination.

They exist to deliver a message.

Those men who sacrificed their lives as in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier are talking to us.

They want to tell us something.

They are asking us to dedicate our lives to forging a better world than the one that took their life.

As Lincoln said in the Gettysburg address:

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

OMG, Iran is Going to Nuke Us

Why does the Israel-Iran conflict exist?

It only exists to justify the military industrial complex and the building up of more arms so that contractors and corporations can get wealthier.

It also exists for the next generation of parasites, the grandchildren of the current day robber barons, so that they can have their war where they can make a lot of money ripping off the American public.

“Wahhhhhhh, where is my war, mommy?”

Plus it keeps the people distracted, occupied, emotionally labile, and pliable.

Distracted, emotional people don’t think straight. They are putty in the hands of the elites.

In that respect, our leaders are no different than those useless pharaohs who built pyramids that appeared to have little functional value other than providing jobs, and of course glory to pharaoh.

That’s why our aircraft carriers exist, don’t you know? They exist so politicians can climb on board and look like the big man that they aren’t.

And of course, there’s the money. How are big corporations going to get fabulously wealthy unless we create a conflict in which they can get fabulously wealthy?

That’s the purpose of the conflict in the Middle East.

It will never end.

And if Jesus returned to end it, our corporate leaders would get together and ask the CIA to kill Jesus.

And you can bet your ass that the CIA would do it.

Honestly now, how long has Iran been only three months away from developing a nuclear weapon?

This charade has been going on at least a decade, possibly even twenty years.

Why don’t we just cut to the chase and let the Iranians have a nuclear weapon?

Why shouldn’t they have nuclear capability?

Why are they not entitled to have what we have?

We sell them Nike shoes and Samsung televisions at the Palladium Mall in Tehran. Why should we stop there?

Moreover, they can’t possibly have shown any greater irresponsibility than we have.

After all, we are the only country that’s detonated a nuclear weapon upon people.

It’s true.

And it was so unnecessary.

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that the dropping of the nuclear weapon stopped the war with Japan.

That’s not how the Russians see it.

The Russians believe that it was their invasion of northern Japan that forced the Japanese to surrender.

They may be right.

But even if the Russians had not planned to invade, it’s totally arguable that a nuclear weapon detonation was unnecessary.

But that’s not the point of this article.

The point of this article is to illustrate the joke that our leaders are playing on us.

It’s not just the leaders of the United States that are participating in this charade, it’s the leaders of Iran also.

They make a fortune off the threat of war also.

Plus the threat of war keeps them in power.

They play the same game with their people that our leaders play with us.

In reality, the leaders of Iran are cut out of the same cloth as our leaders. There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between them.

Iran’s leaders hold their people hostage just as our leaders hold us hostage.

Both leaders straitjacket us through the threat of war.

It’s a charade.

The wars that you see, the wars that you know, the wars that you fought in, the wars that you have lived through were unnecessary and preventable.

So are the wars our leaders are now planning to wage.

In truth, there’s not a snowball’s chance in hell that Iran will drop a nuclear weapon on Israel or the United States.

Why would they risk that knowing it would be their last move on this Earth?

They won’t.

Iran’s leaders need Israel.

Iran’s leaders need the United States.

Without your enemies, the war racket stops.

Why Are Wars Fought?

Why are wars fought?

Don’t be a sucker like I was. I was the most naïve person who ever lived. I believed in social justice. I still do.

But as I say, I was a sucker.

I believed that wars were fought for social justice.

Are wars fought for social justice?

This is the conventional wisdom pervading mainstream media. It exists to delude you into thinking that somebody out there cares.

Let me disabuse you of this notion. Wars are not fought for social justice.

It’s pretty safe to say that no war has ever been fought for social justice.

That includes our Civil War.

Humanity is not noble.

Let me make my case to you so that you can see that what I say is so.

Let’s say that you are leading a massive group of people who want to free the Uighurs in China.

Let’s say that you have 40 million people behind you. I’ll tell you what, let’s sweeten the pot to 300 million people.

What are you going to do to get that war prosecuted?

Well, you would probably lobby the government and its officials. They may even agree with you.

What’s the next step?

Sooner or later, someone’s going to have to ask: What do we stand to gain out of this war?

What’s the point of the war?

The big dweebs in finance will weigh in.

Somebody in New York City is going to be consulted and they are going to want to know what profit it is to the banks who may be loaning money.

What do we stand to gain? What do we stand to lose?

Wars cost money.

You may respond: We will free the Uighurs from injustice.

Do you know how the bankers will respond?

They will laugh in your face. They want to know what profits will accrue to the corporations that are fighting the war. They want to know if we are going to win.

Banks don’t bet on losing propositions.

Big banks bet on winners.

Bankers couldn’t care less about social justice. They care about profits.

This is the reality of humanity.

And it is the bankers and the big corporations that make the decisions to go to war. Regular people don’t make those decisions.

Once you understand this, world events will make sense to you. You will get rid of this idea of events arising from the need to achieve social justice. You will disabuse yourself of the social view of history.

Stay away from the social view of history.

The social view of history says that humanity and civilizations change because of social movements.

The social view history interprets world events in terms of people, their ethnicities, their race, their beliefs.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

You will always be confused about world events if you try to interpret world events in terms of social movements.

You will never be confused about world events if you interpret events in terms of money and profits.

We human beings don’t like to admit that.

We prefer to live behind a façade of nobility.

We are not noble.

We fight wars for money.

We are no different than those tribes that emerged from the woods thousands upon thousands of years ago.

Big movements that pretend to care about social justice are in reality financed by corporations who have a hidden economic agenda.

Movements cost money.

Hitler’s movement in Nazi Germany cost big bucks. It takes a lot of money to pay for uniforms, rallies, officers and organizational efforts.

Hitler’s movement was funded by Wall Street and its German corporate collaborators.

Black Lives Matter is funded by Corporate America.

That’s reality.

Don’t be a sucker like I was.
