An Introduction to the Control Freak’s demented Paradise…, by Paul Matthews

“The Frontier Thesis or Turner Thesis, is the argument advanced by historian Frederick Jackson Turner in 1893 that American democracy was formed by the American frontier. He stressed the process—the moving frontier line—and the impact it had on pioneers going through the process. He also stressed results, especially that American democracy was the primary result, along with egalitarianism, a lack of interest in high culture, and violence. “American democracy was born of no theorist’s dream; it was not carried in the Sarah Constant to Virginia, nor in the Mayflower to Plymouth. It came out of the American forest, and it gained new strength each time it touched a new frontier,” – said Turner ( Turner Thesis).

Dear Friends and Colleagues
Nothing is more gullible, fickle or malleable than public opinion. But a widening consensus indicates that the locomotive driving the American Dream may be finally about to hit the buffers. [1] It’s taken time for the gilt to wear off the gingerbread. For over 60 years – in the wake of the Atlantic Charter (1941), Bretton Woods (1944), GATT and the Marshall Plan (1948), the WTO (1995) – humankind’s infatuation with the US style consumer society has endured. Now there’s no going back to the honeymoon period of post-war years, before the mask of humanity was stripped from the countenance of a turbo-charged capitalist alliance otherwise known as NATO or the Anglo-Zionist Empire. A law unto themselves, operating hand in glove with the mainstream media, the West’s intelligence mafia, notably the CIA and Mossad, openly trades in terror and is running a protection racket. 9/11, 7/7, MH17 are part of a time honoured pattern of false flag operations endorsing a rapport de force to ensure that North America, Europe, Australasia and their satellite nations retain this dire partnership to subdue and enslave the world.

As for the virtues of a ‘special relationship’ and Uncle Sam’s alleged economic vitality, military prowess, cultural virility ? Shades of a balding, barrel chested John Wayne[2] toting a Peacemaker and Winchester repeating rifle ? Pax Americana – like Pax Britannica – is the apotheosis of White Supremacy in decline, an overplayed out game of seduction from the militaro-industrial complex, marketing swanky technology to keep decrepit tyrants in the Arab and US Gulf States in the saddle [3] : virtual gerontocracies served by migrant workers. Compare the Global South’s median age [4] with that of US Congress and ANZAC or European parliaments ie with middle age spread and average ages almost everywhere in excess of 50 [5].

Mother Earth is peopled mostly by youthful non-Europeans [6].With their re-enactments of Lafayette nous voilà and D-Day, [6] the USA, Canada and Europe are living in the past. As with Israel’s founding myth of of a ‘Land Without People for a People Without Land’, the purported love affair between aging starry-eyed Old World populations and fresh-faced GIs liberating them from the curse of Nazism is a fairy tale. Soviet armies defeated the Wehrmacht. [7] The pre-war colonial set up – Rule Britannia and the Monroe Doctrine – persisted after 1945, but with big flashy neon signs to tart up the old bourgeois comprador shopfronts and the same shotgun wedding with marriage vows sealed in blood and the prospect of perpetual debt.

The world moves on. A new fledgeling era of romance is born. Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa have eloped to form their BRICS union. As Hollywood’s debauched idyll dies the death, the agony is felt mostly still among neighbourhoods in the firing line of NATO’s recurrent charm offensives, consisting of singularly cowardly deluges of Hellfire, Brimstone, Paveway and Tomahawk missiles from the foreigners’ fleets of drones, warplanes and warships. Behold then the Palefaces and their Eldorado, a frontier spirit of conquest and thievery : sham democracy’s piratical venture levied at gunpoint. With Samuel Huntington’s ethnocentric Clash of Civilisations as their ideological bedrock, ‘Stand and deliver’ say envoys from the OECD élite’s tax havens. Politely translated the reply from viewers of Peter Lavelle’s Cross Talk, Oksana Boyko’s Worlds Apart, Afshin Rattansi’s Going Underground is an unerring : “Tell it to the Marines” [8].

As for the torrent of lies and half-truths spouted routinely by a clownish duo of Psaki and Harf, two US State Department spokeswomen, the honest broker rôle of Washington carries as much credibility as the fable of the Golden Fleece. Moreover the tidal wave of graft and corruption spells a watery death to hopes of economic recovery and sustainable growth in the EU-US hemisphere, as the rising stars of Eurasia and Latin America eclipse the fading constellations of western imperialism. Significantly in even so-called developed countries, millions are grimly aware they have been sold a pup[9] of Leviathan proportions.

No reforms can span the global social divide.[10]The struggle against TAFTA [11] is one of class – a fight between rich and poor. Whatever form militancy takes – whether in a professional or commercial activity – or in terms of cultural and political action – combating the likes of Monsanto and Victoria Nuland’s Banderstan, trying to keep your bees and the birds alive as transnationals Syngenta and Bayer poison them and your tap water, opposing fracking, waste incineration, pesticides, [12] supporting Venezuela and Cuba’s resistance, unmasking environmental crime, exposing the sordid reality of Jewish state apartheid, succouring Palestine, promoting the Boycott, Divestissement, Sanctions campaign, [13], fighting a Useless and Unnecessary Mega Project[14] trashing your community – ultimately you all have the same adversary, whose only refrains echo in the Mass Media sound bites decreed by the Square Mile and Wall Street.

With protest criminalised, defending human rights or the environment is doomed to fail with a provincial mindset of nimbyism. [15] Single issue politics is the mirror image of a corporate divide and conquer ‘rule of thumb’. The late Chris Harman gave a name – ‘Zombie Capitalism’ – to the repugnant ‘shadow’ banking system whose runaway speculation wreaks havoc on world markets and in the living world.

Its turbulent mercantile agenda vampirizes economies and pensioners’ hard earned savings, destroying jobs and the fabric of society. Instead of husbanding resources, merchant princes and faceless investors script for us all an orgy of waste, profligacy, hybrid assymetric warfare, a feast of human sacrifice and genocidal violence, a scenario with a no-exit strategy, an endgame more like the plot of a Hammer horror, than a practicable down-to-earth plan to extricate the ‘international community’ from societal collapse.

The façade of the familiar names of the so-called Big Four [16] high street banks masks the invisible hand of the finance houses [17] which founded the Federal Reserve System 1913 and whose direct descendents put the USA into permanent default by creating a petrodollar economy and the fiat monetary order[18].

The incipient bankruptcy of such a volatile and unpredictable form of ‘governance’ run by mega-gangsters harbours a nemesis of unprecedented dimesions. Evinced by the unremitting support for the fanatical and vindictive Israeli and Saudi régimes, hegemony comes at a cost. While the stench of rotting corpses fails to reach the nostrils of the ghoulish owners of real estate in Belgravia or Manhattan, big business acumen bespeaks a contempt for human dignity, a financial genius of unbridled materialism, the moral fibre and spiritual authority of Citizen Kane. Intellectually is not moneyworship but the cult of the undead ? Clearly only the braindead can swallow their ‘recipe for success’ be it Full Spectrum Dominance or Frankenfood.

Time we learnt to distance ourselves from the false gods of these special interests, with their spies and spooks, media hacks and embedded journalists. We must question and refute values that revile common humanity and are inculcated at school and university, in the supermarket and car showroom, on the telly and in, paramilitary mode, attack opponents with ‘Shock and Awe’ displays of police state brutality.

But even the Anglo-Zionist Empire’s death squads cannot operate without the acquiescence of their small and big business executive class stooges. Victims of the Snake Oil Salesmen of Austerity and a Spurious ‘Trickle Down Effect’ of the ‘Market Economy’, many North American and EU populations too are almost at Third World poverty levels as public funds bankroll the super rich. The once prosperous Detroit’s drinking water supply has been cut off due to pauperisation and a deteriorating infrastructural environment [19].

In today’s globalised welfare state for the Bilderbergers and their ilk, ‘subhumans’ created by the notion of ‘hierarchy’ can come from a now ‘defunct working class’ made redundant by robot technology or a ‘white collar’ middle class, similarly ‘squeezed’ by the passion for ‘downsizing’. Emboldened stockjobbers and profit takers cause the cost of living to soar and salaries to stagnate and plummet. The purchasing power and sense of security for the vast majority evaporates, popular aspirations falter and prosperity wanes. ‘Economically deprived minorities’ effectively outnumber those participating in the upwardly mobile dribble. Ordinarily families no longer cross, but increasingly straddle, or fall beneath, the poverty line.

Not that ‘underclasses and unpeople’ began with George Washington. Veteran Indian columnist Bhaskar Menon demonstrates with implacable logic how colonial brainwashing and historical illiteracy combine with cultural amnesia to conceal and distort our understanding of the mostly extremely violent encounter which has characterised European relations with the rest of the world from the 15th century onwards[20].

A repulsive game of cowboys and indians is played out in the microcosm of Israel’s Far West within the global schema of the West’s fait accompli diplomacy. Noam Chomsky recently described the two-faced ‘Middle East peace process’ and how ‘negotiations’ are cynically rigged to break down with Washington and Brussels obviously colluding in “Israel’s periodic escalations of its unremitting assault on Gaza” :

“Since November 2005 the terms of these agreements have remained essentially the same. The regular pattern is for Israel to disregard whatever agreement is in place, while Hamas observes it – as Israel has conceded – until a sharp increase in Israeli violence elicits a Hamas response, followed by even fiercer brutality. These escalations are called “mowing the lawn” in Israeli parlance. The most recent was more accurately described as “removing the topsoil” by a senior U.S. military officer, quoted in Al-Jazeera America […] For more than 20 years, Israel has been committed to separating Gaza from the West Bank in violation of the Oslo Accords it signed in 1993, which declare Gaza and the West Bank to be an inseparable territorial unity. A look at a map explains the rationale. Separated from Gaza, any West Bank enclaves left to Palestinians have no access to the outside world. They are contained by two hostile powers, Israel and Jordan, both close U.S. Allies […] Furthermore, Israel has been systematically taking over the Jordan Valley, driving out Palestinians, establishing settlements, sinking wells and otherwise ensuring that the region – about one-third of the West Bank, with much of its arable land – will ultimately be integrated into Israel along with the other regions being taken over. The remaining Palestinian cantons will be completely imprisoned. Unification with Gaza would interfere with these plans, which trace back to the early days of the occupation and have had steady support from the major Israeli political blocs …”. Facts on the ground Noam Chomsky 02 October 2014 [21].

It is public knowledge that Margaret Thatcher – allegedly ‘prompted’ by Ronald Reagan – sent the SAS to help train the people already responsible for the deaths of 25% of population of Cambodia, through a combination of starvation, disease and execution. Tol Mok, «frère numéro six», the Cambodian military chief and soldier – due to testify to this effect – had his trial repeatedly postponed till he died in captivity, thus was never tried for the crimes against humanity with which he was charged. [22] Similarly Slobodan Milošević, Saddam Hussein, and Muammar al-Gaddafi were prevented from ‘spilling the beans’.

In a remarkable article, titled “From Pol Pot to ISIS”, [23] John Pilger demonstrates how, by dropping the equivalent of five Hiroshimas on rural Cambodia during 1969-73, Quaker Richard Nixon and 1973 Nobel Peace Prize winner Henry Kissinger precipitated a civil war, transforming 5,000 poorly armed guerrillas into the Khmer Rouge’s killing machine.[24] He draws parallels between US foreign policy then and now.

Today under a UN and NATO umbrella, President Obama is on a headlong collision course with Russia, as a similar pattern of ‘atrocities’ and ‘ethnic cleansing’ emerges in regions where branches of the EU-US-Saudi-Israeli ‘terror apparatus’ operate – under the watchful eyes of Washington’s sayanim. The war zone is as yet theoretically confined to territories neighbouring the Jewish State of Israel in the Levant (JSIL) and bits of the Ukraine disputed by Kiev where the days of President Poroshenko seem to be numbered.[25]

Meanwhile senior neoconservatives in the cabal waltzing around Victoria Nuland and Robert Kagan’s husband and wife act perform their dance macabre – without a whimper of oversight from congress.

The effect of the gruesome images and appalling statistics from Gaza and the Donbas makes Europeans say to themselves “Theres but for the grace of God, go I …” Yet they do not pause to wonder at their own casualty rates, ie the phenomenal number of people around them dropping like flies from cancer, suffering from other types of ‘substance induced disorders’ such as autoimmune disease, reproductive or cognitive infirmities. [26] Contaminating food and water supplies is one of the first principles of siege warfare …

While observers of resource depletion realise that modern industrial science relies essentially on popular ignorance and superstition, adepts of ‘productivism’ and ‘consumerism’ remain oblivious to just what they actually ‘absorb’ in the ‘Buy-one-get-one-free’ special offers. They heed instead corporate blandishments, relayed by government departments advising the mindless citizenry not to worry about how 60 % of their ‘daily bread’ contains ‘traces of pesticides’ that in reality are NEVER scientifically safety tested ! [27]

Probably our biggest challenge is finding ways to break the mould of this social engineering imposed by the domestic and foreign policy objectives of the USA and its closest allies. We need to identify how our lives are dominated by the petrodollar economy and a neo-nazi feudal colossus whose architects stop at nothing to maintain their ascendancy. Here are the five axes of this megalomania of US ‘exceptionalism’ :

1. Military domination of inner and outer space
2. Financial domination of the economy
3. Technological and scientific domination of the biosphere
4. Geopolitical domination via espionage of digital telecommunications
5. Cultural and linguistic domination of social networks …

While fear of the unknown and Friedrich Nietzsche’s lugubrious Übermensch (superman) concept have a lot to answer for, we have Edward Said to thank for opening our eyes to the pitfalls of Orientalism. [28] With the potential to liberate minds, heighten critical awareness, develop a capacity for discernment and enjoyment of life, poetry reifies a history dating from the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh. It has fallen out of favour in an age of mass communication, knee-jerk responses, macho diplomacy and political correctness and has been sidelined and treated much like any other so-called pariah or ‘failed state’. Because of their immediate appeal, access to a wide audience and power to influence public opinion, cinema, radio and television have inevitably become tools and antennae of the prevailing establishment, part of the same desensitizing and subjugating process as the fast food ethos : ultimately a weapon of mass destruction.

Art or literature – using qualities of speech, music and language to summon up and develop valid ideas, sensibilities, meanings and lines of thought obfuscated by the vacuous banalities of everyday discourse – threaten today’s inhuman and soulless conformity. We are what we eat, drink, feel, think. The sum of the parts indicates mind and body have had their fill of the diabolical stratégie du chaos[29] stage-managing pandemics [30] and the dumbed-down culture of modern politics. Or should that read ‘the dumbed down politics of modern culture’ ? Those parroting a catchphrase of Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign are some of the most useful idiots for the status quo. “It’s the economy, stupid” epitomises the tunnel vision bent on diminishing common humanity and driving civilisation to the edge of philosophical and societal oblivion and beyond. Don’t forget to tune into The multilingual Saker[31]and Club Orlov[32].

The Control Freak’s demented Paradise

Household goods, household gods, Lares and Penates :
Property pages and bargain basements are what dictates
Public life, with the pursuit of happiness in dire straits,
As national policies are stage-managed by potentates,
Offshore, drug fuelled, money laundered wealth permeates
All that an acquisitive culture gangrenes and violates.

Financial empires run amok, their occult power equates
With a cult of science and technology that consecrates
Chemical trespass targeting alike believers and apostates
Indifferently injuring and killing adults, embryos, neonates
With diets of rogue DNA, dioxins, pesticides, phtalates,
Causing obesity, diabetes, cancer, declining birth rates.

Corporate sponsored Strife from the Hell of Gates,
Clinton, Ford, Soros, Rockefeller, each foundation mates
Charitable status, tax evasion, big business heavyweights
With merchant bankers whose princely valour officiates
At Lord Mayor’s banquets, nursing a Chaos that freights
The philanthropy dispensed by depraved caliphates.

This psychotic New World Disorder operates
A satanic orgy of asset stripping that dilapidates
Mother Nature’s dwindling resources and nominates
Governments by ruthless juntas, feudal emirates,
Elites with seriously deranged character traits
A Low Life ethos that Wall Street celebrates.

Breeding corruption, instead of wiping clean the slates,
Sovereign debt, wrought by vulture funds, thus relegates
Human beings to the status of Mere Cyphers, their fates
Beholden to commodity fetishism, enslaved nation states,
The black arts of banking and white man’s voodoo creates
A grey suited Elysium for sad, anally-fixated magnates.

[6] “Throughout that horrible winter of 1777, as the fledgling American army suffered a series of setbacks and settled in to the winter camp at Valley Forge, one man seemed to not understand what was going on. While others in the camp were dispirited, he was excited. While many thought their cause was lost, he was certain of victory. Marie-Joseph-Paul-Yves-Roch-Gilbert Du Motier, also known as the marquis de La Fayette, had crossed the ocean to participate in the dream that was a free nation. He wasn’t about to let that dream end.[…] His last action in the war was also the last action of the war — the siege of Yorktown. He was again in command of his own troops, working again under the command of his friend Washington, when the American forces, aided by the French fleet, forced General Cornwallis to surrender.With the war won, Lafayette returned to France [where he] died in 1834. Lafayette was buried in the Cimetière de Picpus. In World War I, as United States forces arrived in France, a contingent of General Pershing’s forces hurried to the Cimetière de Picpus soon after their arrival. There they knelt on the transplanted American soil that covered one of America’s great heroes. It was Lieutenant Colonel Charles E. Stanton who said what they all felt : Lafayette, nous voilà !”

[7] A quarter of Général Leclerc’s 2nd Armoured Division comprised so-called French colonial troops – 3600 Tirailleurs sénegalais from Chad and Algerians and Moroccans with other ‘foreign elements’, mostly 500 Spanish Republicans. “...The BBC’s Document programme has seen evidence that black colonial soldiers – who made up around two-thirds of Free French forces – were deliberately removed from the unit that led the Allied advance into the French capital. By the time France fell in June 1940, 17,000 of its black, mainly West African colonial troops, known as the Tirailleurs Senegalais, lay dead. Many of them were simply shot where they stood soon after surrendering to German troops who often regarded them as sub-human savages. Their chance for revenge came in August 1944 as Allied troops prepared to retake Paris. But despite their over-whelming numbers, they were not to get it. The leader of the Free French forces, Charles de Gaulle, made it clear that he wanted his Frenchmen to lead the liberation of Paris. Allied High Command agreed, but only on one condition : deGaulle’s division must not contain any black soldiers […]The British and Americans got their “Whites Only” Liberation even though many of the troops involved were North African or Syrian. For France’s West African Tirailleurs Senegalais, however, there was little to celebrate. Despite forming 65% of Free French Forces and dying in large numbers for France, they were to have no heroes’ welcome in Paris”. 6 April 2009 Paris liberation made ‘whites only’.

[18] Federal Reserve System Report to Congressional Addressees July 2011

Starting during the 1959-1969 term of office of President Charles de Gaulle – champion of the non-aligned movement – and persisting till 1970, France reduced her dollar reserves, exchanging them for gold at the official exchange rate to reduce the USA’s economic influence. Along with the fiscal strain of federal expenditures for the Vietnam War and a chronic balance of payments deficit, this led US President Richard Nixon to end the international convertibility of the dollar to gold on 15 August 1971. What became known as the “Nixon Shock” was a series of far reaching geopolitical and macro economic arrangements undertaken, firstly in 1971,when the USA abandoned the International Gold Standard which had operated to back currencies since 1946 under the Bretton Woods Agreements. Two years after this unilateral cancellation of the direct convertibility of the US dollar to gold, in order to maintain global demand for US dollars, another measure created the so-called petrodollar system. In 1973, a deal was struck between Saudi Arabia and the USA whereby every barrel of oil purchased from the Saudis would be denominated in US dollars. Under this system, any country seeking to purchase oil from Saudi Arabia was required to first exchange their own national currency for US. dollars. In exchange for Riyad’s willingness to denominate their oil sales exclusively in US dollars, Washington offered weapons and protection of their oil fields from neighboring nations, including Israel. The first country to break faith with this was Saddam Hussein’s Iraq which opted to sell its oil in exchange for Euros.

Sample : “In the face of political impotence, resource depletion, and catastrophic climate change, many of us have become reconciled to an uncertain future. However, popular perception of how this future might actually unfold varies wildly from “a severe and prolonged recession,” to James Howard Kunstler’s “long emergency,” to the complete breakdown of civilization. In The Five Stages of Collapse, Dmitry Orlov posits a taxonomy of collapse, offering a surprisingly optimistic perspective on surviving the sweeping changes of the day with health and sanity intact. Arguing that it is during periods of disruption and extreme uncertainty that broad cultural change becomes possible, Orlov steers the reader through the challenges of financial, commercial, and political collapse. He suggests that if the first three stages are met with the appropriate responses, further breakdown may be arrested before the extremes of social and cultural collapse are reached.

Drawing on a detailed examination of post-collapse societies, including the Somali people of Africa, the Pashtuns of Afghanistan, the Roma of Central and Eastern Europe, and even the Russian mafia, The Five Stages of Collapse describes successful adaptations in areas such as finance, self-governance, and social and cultural organization. These fascinating case studies provide a unique perspective on the characteristics that determine highly resilient communities. Shot through with Orlov’s trademark dark humor, this is an invaluable toolkit for creating workable post-collapse solutions.

Dmitry Orlov was born in Leningrad, Russia, and immigrated to the United States. He is the author of Reinventing Collapse and maintains the phenomenally popular blog Club Orlov.The Five Stages of Collapse: Survivors’ Toolkit Paperback – May 28, 2013 by Dmitry Orlov (Author)

Stage 1 : Financial collapse. Faith in “business as usual” is lost. The future is no longer assumed to resemble the past in any way that allows risk to be assessed and financial assets to be guaranteed. Financial institutions become insolvent; savings are wiped out and access to capital is lost.

Stage 2 : Commercial collapse. Faith that “the market shall provide” is lost. Money is devalued and/or becomes scarce, com-modities are hoarded, import and retail chains break down and widespread shortages of survival necessities become the norm.

Stage 3 : Political collapse. Faith that “the government will take care of you” is lost. As official attempts to mitigate widespread loss of access to commercial sources of survival necessities fail to make a difference, the political establishment loses legitimacy and relevance.
Stage 4 : Social collapse. Faith that “your people will take care of you” is lost, as local social institutions, be they charities or other groups that rush in to fill the power vacuum, run out of resources or fail through internal conflict.
Stage 5 : Cultural collapse. Faith in the goodness of humanity is lost. People lose their capacity for “kindness, generosity, consideration, affection, honesty, hospitality, compassion, charity.” Families disband and compete as individuals for scarce resources. The new motto becomes “May you die today so that I can die tomorrow.”

Post Scriptum

An inpenetrable blanket of official secrecy veils the collaborative work by key biotech firms and government research centres such as Fort Detrick, Israel Institute for Biological Research (IIBR) at Nes Ziona,, and their Commonwealth/Echelon counterparts. The chances that genetic engineering and/or factory farming have had nothing to do with several novel strains of microbes targeting both humans and animals in epidemic or pandemic forms are virtually nil. In addition to the BSE-nvCJD and FMD outbreaks – the latter still prevalent in the Maghreb – over the past fifty years, the world has had to contend with HIV/Aids (1981-2014), Anthrax (2001+), Swine Flu H1N1 (1976-2009+).Avian Flu H5N1/H7N9 (2004-2014) Ebola (1976-2014). While countries in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres have been adversely affected by one or other of the above diseases, there is reason to believe that Equatorial or Sub-Saharan Africa is now the main focus of a genocidal bioterrorist programme, generated by the Anlo-Zionists and to justify military intervention there. If not, the question being why is the USA sending troops, while Cuba dispatches a 165 strong medical team to the stricken areas ? With regards to the current events, what is the rôle of USAMRIID, WHO, Tulane University, in New Orleans, US Center for Disease Control (CDC), France’s Médicins Sans Frontiers, Canada’s Tekmira pharmaceutical company, Britain’s GlaxoSmithKline and Kenema Government Hospital in Sierra Leone ?

East meets West : British street artist Banksy records on his website how, in August 2005, an old Palestinian man said his painting on the Israeli Separation Barrier at Bethlehem made the wall look beautiful. Banksy thanked him … only to be told: ‘We don’t want it to be beautiful, we hate this wall. Go home.’ The graffiti image itself is now badly faded and will, in all eventuality, disappear completely …
