AMERICA. NOBODY'S FRIEND ! DON'T WAIT FOR COLUMBUS DAY TO TEACH THE KIDS that "HITLER" is in the White House. To take note of the PERILS OF ABSOLUTE POWER & WHAT CONSTITUTES a NAZI ZEITGEIST and to realize it all started with COLUMBUS.
COLUMBUS DAY is the ideal opportunity to contemplate this man whom we did NOT really know, the genocidal navigator-explorer named CRISTOFORO COLOMBO. Every day of the year, we must teach the this unknown aspect of Columbus to young citizens of the future. Chris was basically a talent scout. CLICK ON BIO. ^ He sold his boat-piloting time finding land for Kings to steal, natives to enslave, enriching the Empire and himself. Click also on > "The History of the People of the United States" by Howard Zinn, that is the COLUMBUS page. He tells the detailed truth about the years of torture and murder wreaked intentionally by CC. It will rip your heart out.. Have your kids read it too or stash this article in your cache and show it to them on COLUMBUS DAY, the perfect day to teach our children the reality which is that MALTHUSIAN philosophy. And teach them WHAT REALLY HAPPENED:
Help the kiddies put it all in context. Help them recognize that today's TEXTBOOKS LIE like RUGS, our MAINSTREAM MEDIA is a bunch of trained dogs LYING for stability in their source of MONEY like pups jumping for crunchy TREATS. OUr WHITE HOUSE RESOURCE PIRATING wars are EXACAMUNDO Chris Colombo REDUX, tho today it's all about pirating minerals, metals and oil.
16th century despots used to invade, occupy, murder and colonize to get millions of slaves, to get GOLD, or in later times to own the banana trees, the coffee, the copper as in Chile which we WRECKED, see FILM "MISSING". See UNDER FIRE, SEE 'SALVADOR" Screen them for the kiddies. Colonizers used to be content to just run the third world dictators, and through them own the UNIONS, (and death squads) but American oligarchs got wily. They learned bloodier more efficient colonizing and 'people harvesting.' Like SEND IN THE G.I's to slaughter Vietnamese. Not to mention 15 OTHER WARS. (NY TIMES JOURNALIST STEVEN KINZER SAYS, -- now 2015, it's MORE though.) That's not counting THIS NEW ISRAELI INVENTION, HIDDEN PROXIE wars. We send in TERRORISTS trained by the MOSSAD to GAS THE ENTIRE CITY, KILL HUNDREDS of children, take down ASSAD maybe, then blame Assad and send ISIL in and of course it's only nasty ASSAD so nobody protests. We WIN SYRIA "CLEAN" with Mossad-American injected CANCER into Syria's inside at night the way Polish astronauts go to the moon. And AMERICA is doing that same injected CANCER of terrorists, rebels, coups all over Africa and the Middle East. Yep. WE GOT GOOD at doing bolder, bigger LAND GRABS and doing much worse harm to rural people as we the good guys, AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL, create rabid factions that kill each other all in our rush to purloin the country's mineral & oil resources, and dirty cheap labor. SLAVES. The friendship of America is not morally or economically healthy for the country being "democratized" ---(ahem! mugged and raped.) America is nobody's friend.
How did our politicians and propaganda artists convince the American public that these were GOOD wars, good friendships and not genocide? How did the antithesis of peace, love, brotherhood, AMERICAN FRIENDSHIP BECOME THE MUCH VAUNTED GOOD THING?
How did kind, progressive, non-racist, sharing or socialistic, Fabian "Liberalism " get to be a BAD thing?
The word "Liberal" means giving --easily. "Conservative" means believing the thoughts of Malthus, who worked for the East India Trading Corp of the UK...and the MARITIME COLLEGE who together promulgated the message Kings wanted to believe: gold is finite, gems are finite, land is finite,' so hold on to what you have, kill to protect it, worry about whose name it's in and always send starving male slaves out as soldiers grabbing more. And always be more strategic, more cunning at getting 'stuff'. Even devious, even murderous. It's easy to get stuff if you point a gun! So invent war toys!
THINK back to the NEANDERTHALS, before the GRAB IT ALL "GREED IS GOOD" ETHOS grew like a cancer on the flank of the later, Cro-Magnon man. It wasn't always that way. When homo erectus first began in small hunter/gatherer Neanderthal groups, they found things for the clan, not for THEMSELVES ALONE. Imagine how rude that would seem. You come back to camp with your own deer and...what? FREEZE IT in baggies? No, you shared with each other. Dinner at night was like a picnic buffet today: CELEBRATORY! Joe the Hunter was l8, strong, so he made flints, he hunted; he chased through the woods barefoot & put the spear in the boar at risk of being gored. The group loved him as a hero. That's as close as he got to being a CEO.
Maybe half the tribe was older, couldn't walk barefoot, they let Joe do it but guess what? All ate equally well! Generosity and altruism were alive on the planet. And after that meal, when they're strumming conch ukeleles, and piping on reeds and beating drums, the gang felt the gratitude and love for Joe. All the higher emotions. You need somebody, you're grateful to them for running barefoot through the forest and pronging a BOAR; you appreciate that somebody. And Joe's giving to the small, weary, aged or incompetent their fair share of the meat made him more heart centered, proud to be a giver. He became a real winner. And his seed made the cut! Be sure of it.
I gave her some barbecued ribs. Now she loves me. I'm
gonna tell Darwin about this hunting gambit idea. It works!
Comes the end of the Ice Age, the world dried up, animals became harder to find, so man turned to farming. In later Farming communities, they shared the cave hut or shack, had the great hall, had the homes strung one to the next. No fences between Teepees made for real brother sister feelings. Fencing off neighbors would have seemed rude. And, owning something for one person, like land, crops, implements, would have seemed rudest of all, but then came the self appointed warrior kings, taxation, the TAX REGISTER, WHO OWNED WHAT AND HOW MUCH. Say goodbye shared vegetable plots or animal grange. Then came the evil ENCLOSURES, where the rich people took the grange land and enclosed it so the sheep couldn't go there, so the farmer couldn't till there, well, that RUDE ACT became the norm. It was based on the myth of enemies, some perceived danger 'out there.' Capitalism is a Mafia protection racket. The king in the castle could claim, I gotta salary all those soldiers, a.) you owe me taxes up the wazoo, and b.) you are now officially a serf, and C.) The purple robe is on my shoulders, I'm the King. And you aren't! Pay your taxes and you will be safe from other tribes who want your women and cattle or encroaching pirates who will carry you away and enslave you. So -- be enslaved by your own KING or some pirate terrorist in a boat?
Voila. Fear made us vassals. Conservatism, serfdom, empires, kings, war, war toys were all born in one evil minute! Corporatism, fascism and GM seeds would not be far behind. While our bodies and minds evolve, our philosophies have devolved. There is a counter trend contained within material evolution. Spiritual devolution!
There is an excellent book, "The Fall", written by Steve Taylor which proposes that man has been insane since farming started, right after the last ice age. Once man began farming, he was confined to one spot, with a limited range of things to eat, thus grain, potato and sheep hoarding began, covetousness, wars, and general unhappiness. Cities arose, overcrowding, hatred, war.
But I don't think it was staying put and farming as hey, we know men. If they want to go shoot arrows they can go off for as many days as they want, see all the farmgirls at other villages that they want, as long as they come home with the MEAT! By that I mean the edible RED protein that we COOK ON THE STOVE. IN fact, it's so useful,bring us the animals alive so we can put them in a corral and eat whenever we want.
Disease exploded when animals were domesticated, and man came into contact with the germs their meat carried. Critters have cooties. New ones, to us humans at least. Measles came from dogs, smallpox is a close kin to cowpox, sheep pox and even the common cold came from other creatures and all the flus did. Mycoplasma is resident in pigs, cats, dogs and all barnyard animals (swine flu? Poultry flu?) and it can kill the first time the human is infected. Much worse than the annual flu we all have these days.
In America, no suitable animals were available for domestication, thus the Native Americans had no resistance to the diseases the Europeans brought, or which their BARNYARD GERMS brought, ( cows, dogs, and especially pigs came as germs carried on the explorers' bodies or later, animals were brought over in person.) There are estimates that 95% of the native population died out after Columbus. (And here it is nearly Columbus's Day.) Another wonderful book about that theme is "1491" by Charles C. Mann. You can buy both books used at Abebooks.com if you like philosophy of mankind's history studied from an anthropological viewpoint.
By virtue of working for greedy King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, Columbus was also one of the greatest conservatives finding a second half to the world the royals had already quite well exploited. He was no liberal. This would be an excellent time to reiterate that liberalism saves, doesn't destroy. Liberals GIVE, they don't take. They organize altruistically for the common benefit. They are in a bliss state, literally are happy campers. Joyous people do not exploit slaves by the whip and take the fruits of labor for a King. They have no stomach for villainy or genocide as they love people.
Time to have your child read these books for a few days before the anniversary of one of the most greedy events in human history-- October 12th, the anniversary of the destruction of the New World, so that he or she can do a SHOW AND TELL CLASS PROJECT, maybe tying it in to the fate of HAITI, the first place ole Chris landed! See the HAITIAN GAMBIT.
