It is difficult to come to terms with the Trump-puppetry. I suspect, although I don’t know for sure, that the Trump position is the least controlled policy in the years of neoliberalism, but there is no doubt how effective his time as President has been for the 1%. The 1% control the Republican party, and even though in toto they didn’t want him to begin with they support him now as he is getting them money.

Trump is clearly narcissistic, probably to the point of there being a clinical problem, but this matters not to the 1% whose greed is sociopathic and species-suicidal anyway. They give the Trump-puppet a leash of enabled narcissism that covers a continual erosion of regulation that protects people whilst leaving untouched the regulation that protects financial mechanisms – that protects the profits of the 1%. (see Chomsky on Trump as a distraction).

For years Republicans have performed the neoliberal dance completely subservient to the 1%-profit-making, there is therefore no reason to believe that they are suddenly enamoured of such a philistine. Apart from the immorality of war which is bipartisan, they do usually claim some sort of moral ethos to their position. Trump does not have any appeal to morality, his rationale is hardcore right-wing populism. I am convinced that many republicans have a dilemma over the promotion of certain right-wing values that cause violence. But this is tolerated because of the increased profits and deregulation that is the 1%-bidding.

So what about this Guardian opinion? Is there anything to it other than a snowflake knee-jerking?

I have never considered the Russia interference issue because to me it is a RED herring – cold war joke. You have to be very ignorant to think that there has not been some Russian manipulation through social media. How serious the impact is I have no idea, but that has got to be a conditioning problem connected to gullibility. However the essential tenet of US foreign policy since the Second World War has been manipulation, so there is a clear level of hypocrisy. During the Cold War era there was a continual vying of international interest between US and USSR – dominated by US manipulation. Despite the naivete of this Guardian article this US manipulation has never been for the promotion of democracy – it could better be described as the promotion of neocolonialism of which sham electoral democracy is a lynchpin for the deluding of populations.

So what does a public show of solidarity with Putin show? Maybe it is that the world must accept a move to the right?

For me some sort of alliance between the US, USSR and China initially appears beneficial for the world. But I suspect that the Trump-puppet/ Putin summit was not concerned with cementing a G3 but an attempt at marginalising China in the Trump-puppet trade war.

In this clip Paul Jay of TRNN (the Real News Network) describes the interrelationship between free market, oligarchs (Russian and American), their puppets, Trump and possibly Putin, and the way they control governments. There are far too many clarifications that Paul makes it is a waste of writing to discuss them, listen.

And in relation to a G3, in this clip Paul makes it clear that Trump-puppet strategies are concerned with China and Iran – his actions indicate this so I won’t disagree. It makes sense that Trump-puppet cements an alliance with Russia in a trade war with China, and Russia is an essential ally in the balkanisation of the Middle East and the control of Iran.

This quote places the Russiagate hype into an obvious context that I had not previously seen – shame on me “The reason that there was such vicious glee emanating from liberals in regards to RT America being targeted and sanctioned, is because liberals have been conditioned to believe that Russia in general, and RT America in particular, is the sole reason for Trump being president. The mainstream media, in fulfilling their position as the propaganda arm for the elites and the military-intelligence industrial complex, has continuously beat the anti-Russia and anti-RT drum.” I have watched the machinations of neoliberalism, the Corporate-Democrats, eschewing Bernie in favour of Hillary, and since the Trump-puppet election their failure to come up with a meaningful strategy to fight the Trump-puppet – simply hoping he will implode. Their efforts are far more concerned with fighting the genuine democratisation of the party, much in line with the attacks on Corbyn through anti-Semitism and the like. Here is a clear analysis of Fake News and Russia by the late Edwards S Herman, a collaborator of Chomsky; it is detailed and not just focussed on Russia but the Fake News of the New York Times: its approach is similar to this blog.

BAR have a very clear position on this RED herring of Russia as illustrated by this gif:-

As usual BAR analysis is on the money and is far more critical of the snowflake response to Russia. This article is rather polemic but describes the situation. Glen’s use of “dependable” is interesting and worth considering. I completely accept that Obama and Clinton as neoliberal mouthpieces were dependable. What about Trump-puppet? This is a subjective view, and as I don’t know him has got to have very little credence. I accept Chomsky’s view that Trump is loving the attention – and whilst snowflakes particularly are focussed on him the 1% are making long-term changes that Americans and the world will suffer from as they increase accumulation. The Trump-puppet’s narcissism is also drawing all the flack, and this the 1% have got to love. In fact if Trump-puppet continues to do what they want, he is better than Clinton- and Obama-puppet. Certainly Obama’s popularity enabled introduction of certain policies without disruptive response. Trump-puppet is causing far more damage to the social fabric of America but this does not overly concern the 1%. Trump-puppet is increasing war profits, but there has to be serious questions as to how much damage he is doing to international business “ethos”.

For example, do the 1% want a trade war with China? I subscribe to the view that there is a global 1%-land, and 1%-“nationality” is far more important in 1%-land. Despite some views to the contrary (Icke etc.), these people are still human. The American 1% will certainly pay lip-service to Trump-puppet’s MAGA although accumulation will be their first priority. I suspect close ties between US and Russian oligarchs (not something that was started by Trump-puppet), but I am not so sure about China because their protectionist policies especially with regards to currency tends to be a barrier to imperial control. So I am unsure about China and the trade war.

Is Trump-puppet dependable? I would say no. Is he controllable? I think very much so. Will he always be so? ??????

The same article talks about the corporatocracy wanting diversity, I think they have accepted that rather than wanting it. Accepting it means that they have been able to profit from it, no moral position. Now there is confrontation rather than diversity, they can still exploit it. Exploiting people is what they do. To them it doesn’t matter whether there is confrontation, in fact it is better for them because accepting diversity risks a united position against the 1%; division is the usual 1% strategy. For the 1% bipartisan confrontation, racist and sexist confrontation suits, so there I disagree with Glenn – “Thus, corporate America, wedded as it is to a “diversity” doctrine that means little to the masses of Black people but is a red flag to the White Man’s Party “deplorables,” will be forced to identify more publicly with the Democrats, or pretend to be apolitical.”

I want to finally note this article in which BAR attacks the Democrats’ black caucus. I note rather than comment, it is not for a white person to comment on such issues. However I will say to white people who talk about black people as one … There is a unity of all black people when they meet white racism, as white people we need to change our racism, stop racist assaults at whatever level, and see black people as the different people they are.

MAWPs and Fake News

Posted: 15/07/2018 by zandtao in Freedom, Struggle
Tags: ,


In this blog I examined a history of “fake news” in which sound people have always seen the news as “fake” – controlled by media moguls of the 1%. Trump’s approach to Fake News is different, he trying to control what his supporters accept as news – news is fake unless the news supports Trump. This is not a question of Fake News but a propaganda exercise that has worked well in deluding many of his supporters.

I have already described a while back why MAWPs are a particular target group or demographic of Trump supporters. There is an obvious corollary to Trump’s control of Fake News that I had not pointed out; I was aware of it but it was not central to my understanding. The A of MAWP is arrogant, they know what is going on, they don’t need to learn anything because they already know. So when they are told the news is fake, they already know it is. I was quoted Denzel Washington “If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed”; but this was used by the MAWP as an excuse not to learn. And that is awful.

As usual this MAWP was set in his ways, and like another MAWP recently – not the troll, he can listen and agree to the most significant aspects of being a genuine socialist:- the problem is the 1% and they make profits from war. After the previous MAWP I was aware of how much agreement there was. With this MAWP there was good banter as well – as I was a snowflake and he was a fascist bastard. But when there was serious discussion he agreed with the main points – as did the other MAWP who had shocked me so much when I became aware he was a Trump supporter. The point is that these guys have a good sense of Unity with the main issue of 1% and war, but have been completely conditioned into the neoliberal bipartisan created schism of fascists and snowflakes.

When I described neoliberalism and the way it works he didn’t disagree, but he immediately mawped up when I talked of media conditioning saying something like “my ideas are my own” – his A. This is the problem with MAWPs – his ideas are not his own but the way the 1% want MAWPs to think, and he is not listening to anyone else who is saying differently because they are speaking “Fake News”.

The right wing has never been willing to listen. When I grew up the right wing were comfortable with the news occasionally ranting about the socialist bias of the BBC. So they got their steady flow of right-wing propaganda at 9.00pm. People of my generation rejected this propaganda and they made minor changes to the BBC, such changes of course moving away from the right-wing post-war propaganda of the 50s, 60s and 70s but never telling the truth. For these right-wingers, left-wing means centrist (Blair) but by then the Liberals had become powerful elsewhere under Blair’s government. And they became a target. It was correct they were targeted but the reasons were wrong. These snowflakes adhered to their ideals eschewing the other, and so the right-wing became alienated and have backlashed with Trump, Farage and Brexit. I apologise for seamlessly moving between the US and UK, but the dominant forces in both countries are similar. In the US however there are more extremists and more money to create them, hence the emergence of Trump, however there has always been the ilk of “Brittania Unchained” and Dominic Raab in British politics.

The point of this blog is how do we educate MAWPs? By their nature their arrogance prevents education, and this weakness has been utilised by the money behind the move to the right. The answer for educating them is not through the bleating of snowflakes as they just heighten their arrogance. Whichever think-tank decided to empower snowflakes under Blair and Obama certainly knew how to push MAWP buttons, how long will we have to pay for this manipulation?

For most of my life the answer of educating has always been information, present the facts and anyone desiring to learn will understand the truth. Now that we are in a situation where such information cannot be controlled by the media 1% they have a new tactic – Fake News, make these MAWPs think that they are being lied to by all who disagree. In the US the MAWPs fail to see how the 1% and their Trump-puppet are simply enabling further exploitation perhaps because the Trump-puppet spends time decrying his masters to make himself popular. The arrogance of these MAWPs that they can believe a politician is absolutely staggering, and despite so much evidence to the contrary believe he is working in their interest. However this is in line with the small business owner who arrogantly considers themselves to be part of the 1% until they are swallowed by the Big fish.

Convincing these “fooled” has gotten harder with access to information, all they see with the new information is snowflake foolishness because of their own MAWP arrogance. This is why the recognition of conditioning globally is a Unity-strategy for moving forward.

New Fact of Life

Posted: 29/06/2018 by zandtao in ONE planet, Struggle
Tags: ,


When I grew up people were racist overtly, much use of racist language – as a child and teenager I used such language; it was just my upbringing. On reflection I would say that I was never being intentionally racist but more importantly I was making no effort to be anti-racist, it was just what people in a white suburb in the 60s were like. I was fortunate. As a young man I met people who taught me not to be racist, I particularly remember a black teacher who later became a friend taking the time to teach me not to be racist. Over time I began to explore how deep this racism went – in me and in society, and as I got older I grew to understand more and more of the racist conditioning that is endemic in British society.

To think someone is “inferior” because of the colour of the skin is something I now find completely alien. When I was young I can’t say I thought black people “inferior” in any way, but it was just the done thing to use racial insults.

Institutionally to treat someone as being “less” in any way is completely unjust. For example the housing practices of Lambeth council in the 70s and early 80s disadvantaged black people, and was unacceptable – it was just white people favouring white people; in other words institutional racism.

As I grew older my perspective widened, and I began to see the treatment of black people as “internal colonialism”. Overseas the tactics of the ruling colonial government was always to divide and rule. I particularly remember two African guys (friends) who took the time to educate me on how this worked in their countries of Cameroon and Uganda. Whilst divide-and-rule was not limited to Africa, it was very effective there. I was also recently taught that divide-and-rule as a tactic has existed far longer by Indians – in the caste system.

With such powerful forces in place it is hardly surprising that British people grow up with racist conditioning.

When I was younger things started to change. In the 70s and 80s there was a move to change this racism. It started with language because misuse of language towards black people was so prevalent, but at that time it was perceived as a two-stage process – stop the insulting language and then educate as to why the language was so inappropriate.

Over the years this process changed, mainly under Blair (I was not in the UK then), and it became acceptable that racist language was censored – without any educational component. Those critical of this approach call it PC-authoritarianism, and I completely understand why. With the focus on the superficialities of PC and language, the awareness of the problem has been lost, and many people just accepted the censorship seeing the language as unacceptable without developing any awareness. Although there was an improved environment because of the lack of such language, there was not really a change in racist attitudes – they were just hidden. For this reason it has been so easy for the racism to re-emerge as right-wing forces have become stronger. The new fact of life is that such racist opinion that had been hidden has been emboldened by politicians prepared to express such opinions. It now means that I have to be prepared to meet racists who are prepared to express their racism, and I have to live with it. At the same time there is still a powerful PC-authoritarian lobby for whom censorship is acceptable. This means that there is unlikely to be a change in awareness as there are just two opposing opinions being expressed, and no attempt at communication and no attempt at developing awareness. In fact trolling as baiting snowflakes has become popular, and such arrogance can never be helpful – however tempting.

What has to be understood is that racism is part of the conditioning that western countries deliver – it is still part of our upbringing. How it is experienced differs from family to family, from white community to white community. I have no idea how it is experienced in society now, I don’t know how just the teaching of racism is. But it is fair to say that all white people grow up conditioned as racists to some extent, it is just part of general conditioning in white society.

Conditioning is powerful as discussed in Treatise LINK – Ch22 and elsewhere. It is just part of the experience of growing up in a western society. Although society and education is similar throughout, how racism is perceived is very different depending on family and community. But it is emotion and conditioning that determines how racist you are. My own increased awareness came from meeting black people who took the time to help me. If in your community you don’t meet such good people then the racism is likely to be far more entrenched.

What has to be understood is that racism is conditioned, it is not rational. We receive attitudes in our upbringing, and emotionally we attach to these attitudes – they are not based on rational thinking. At the same time we cannot use observation to support a position. For example gang culture, one cannot deny there are black gangs deeply involved in drug culture and who kill each other. Equally it cannot be denied that there are not such white drug gangs although white criminality is prevalent throughout all strata of white society – and rich crime is far more dangerous and lucrative. One can observe however survival behaviour amongst poorer people whatever the colour of the skin. Simply by observation one could make any argument for or against racism simply by selecting the observations you choose. To try to change racism by rational argument alone does not work, awareness is more than just rational – it needs to be emotional and political, an understanding of conditioning. Like all forms of conditioning it takes a long time to undo all the harm our conditioning brings us.

I recently met a lady whose views on race were very different to mine. Ten years ago she would have been unlikely to express her views to me even though we would probably both been aware of each other’s views. I do not expect to meet her again whereas previously we would have had a socially acceptable relationship – she was the wife of a friend. The friend and I disagreed over issues but were still able to be amicable – not close. That is fine, that is Unity. But now we are divided, that is the prevailing ethos.

The New Fact of Life is that racists are being emboldened by the move to the right. At the same time this emboldening is of people who do not object to separation, do not see the necessity of working together. In my life I have always been seen as extreme – left, but I worked with people accepting that the system was unfair but there was a need for compromise. Centrist-right teachers did not compromise and as it was their system they didn’t have to – but there was a tolerance. The new fact of life is that that tolerance has gone.

I don’t like PC-censorship, and tend to agree with right-wing crits that it is oppressive. However right-wing oppression is always far worse. They have no problem with being hypocritical, criticising liberals whilst being far more repressive themselves. But right-wing repression usually brings with it the law, and if not that force then the bullying that goes with right-wing ignorance. I think Antifa violence going on the attack cannot possibly win, and gives credibility to right-wing bullyboys. There does need to be defence but …

I fear the increasing right-wing oppression, that kind of mindlessness I was glad to leave behind in the UK. I suspect it will now follow me. Will I still be able to blog nearer my death?

And in talking about this New Fact of Life I am partly shamed. 24/7 blacks, Hispanics and Muslims have to live with this, most of the time I can let it pass me by.

Brainwasheds

Posted: 29/06/2018 by zandtao in Insight
Tags:

“They refuse to see what they see hear what they hear because they are so brain washed and living in Trump and Fox [FAUX] propaganda and an alternate reality We could be at the brink of destruction and they still would follow him like the followers of Jim Jones.”

“Offer them all a free weekend in North Korea where everyone loves Trump & Christians plus the beaches are really nice”

I saw this meme on facebook, and picked the top two comments.

The meme and comments totally irritated me. Yesterday (Blog written two weeks ago) I watched coverage of the North Korea issue. All I saw was partisan ignorance. Ever since there was a DMZ Korea has been divided. Governments from both sides have continued the dispute by having war exercises. If you ignore the media and look for the truth, it was these war exercises that were isolating North Korea. I have no idea what was going on behind the scenes but ending war exercises was a very positive step, whoever made the agreement. It was positive for peace.

Here I heard Chomsky describing Trump as something like a public distraction that the media and people were deluded by whilst the powerful were digging away underneath.

What has happened since the election is increased polarisation, and polarisation is not a one-sided process. These comments are typical of the polarising positions.

Why is it that there are 30% following Trump “blindly”? Because the alternative that is offered has nothing for them. Why did so many vote for such a fool in the first place? Because the alternative offered nothing for them. There have always been racist sexist deplorables but not as many as 30%, why has this proportion increased? Until people answer this question and act on the answer, Trump is going to stay there. It is no good saying I’m right the other is wrong and having a pop. This mentality has been classified as “snowflake”, and has led to “others” not listening. There are a proportion of Trump supporters who are deplorable, and there are others who are not. How are these non-deplorable Trump supporters being addressed? As deplorables fools sexists and racists.

Why did these non-deplorables vote for Trump? Because the snowflakes and Democrats offered them nothing. Government is for all the people including white – described as privileged or otherwise. If snowflakes and Democrats continue to offer these white people nothing then Trump will stay in power.

Does this mean take jobs from blacks Hispanics or women? NO It means stop supporting the 1% and demand that the 1% return money to the economy so that there are more jobs. After the election some Democrats talked of this, and in the community some are doing this but the Democrat elite in the pockets of Wall Street have done nothing – and just “hoped ” support for Trump will burn out. It seems that it is not.

What is clear is that Wall Street Democrats would prefer Trump to the grass roots or Bernie. Until that is changed there will be Trump or similar.

Academy, 1% and Trump

Posted: 04/02/2018 by zandtao in War
Tags: , ,

I have no idea whether Trump supporters still believe that he is fighting the 1%, but BAR has written an article recognising academic verification that Trump swung into office not on a charger of his own money but of the usual suspects – finance and hedge funds [1%]. Although Robert Mercer wasn’t specifically mentioned in the BAR article, this confirms academically what Real News Network had been saying about Trump finances. Trump is rich, backed by 1%, and has done 1% bidding as described in this BAR article.

I don’t like Hillary but have never seen her as any more than a typical power-hungry corrupt politician – Trump is far worse, but Glen Ford is far more condemning; however Hillary’s cackling over the death of Gaddafi is chilling.

Adam Curtis blog with Russell Brand “Under the Skin” spoke of finance wanting stability, but under Trump that has clearly changed. It is interesting to note that the 1% are not uniform (one identity). Robert Mercer and the hedge-fund backers brought Trump in yet initially the 1% were cagey; now he has proved his worth to them. “Or, some would argue that he has been bludgeoned into that posture. Certainly, the bulk of the ruling class and their attendants, interpreters and enforcers were horrified that the Orange Menace might destabilize the two-capitalist-party system, undermine the free global flow of capital and jobs, and allow the momentum of the military offensive begun by Barack Obama in 2011 to falter. That threat to the imperial order has passed. Trump’s savage assault on the very concept of regulation; his willingness to renegotiate NAFTA and the Trans Pacific Partnership; and the rise of the generals as both day-to-day and overall policy managers in his White House, are “normalizing” Trump. The Republican tax cut — a looting spree – although not engineered by Trump, redounds to his benefit in 1% circles. As their unearned gains accrue, the Lords of Capital appreciate the uses of The Donald. Orange is the new normal – a measure of how insane late stage capitalism has become.” It was actually a fall-back of mine (along with brinkmanship) that finance required stability. It is very worrying that they can embrace such overt war-mongering as Trump and profit from him, it was almost a “comfort” that the wars were secretive – almost covert, and that maybe they were ashamed to profit from them. But to embrace Trump is frightening. I hope they come to their senses.

The article finishes with “The main objective is to make endless war palatable, as imperialism attempts to bomb, blockade, occupy and bluster its way out of a cascade of crises. Unable to compete with the Chinese command economy, its “soft” power exhausted, the U.S. empire plays the only strong card it has left: its massive military, now centered on a special operations force roughly as large as the entire French Army. War becomes both the means of imperial survival and justification for its continued existence: the how and the why of empire.

Liberals read this “That’s why there is no such thing as a “resistance” that is not loudly and consistently anti-war.

Ndeh Ntumazah and Omwony-Ojwok taught me my world view (taken from my YJ days), this is why I seek the clarity that sound black people have. Thank you BAR.

Libertarian Delusion

Posted: 02/02/2018 by zandtao in Democracy, Freedom, Struggle
Tags: ,


I am too often critical of libertarians but I have to be because they are intelligent and give credibility to the naked greed of the 1% which is currently masquerading as the Trump presidency. There has to be freedom, but it must be freedom as in compassion – freedom from suffering for all. For some libertarians “for all” is forgotten, the fierce individualism “shines” through, and freedom from government interference is all that matters.

Under Trump the 1% has reduced government but very specifically – in areas that don’t affect 1% profits. Many libertarians quite rightly are concerned about the state of the planet, they know it is necessary to protect the planet, but regulations and government departments that do this protection are not being funded – under the reduction of government platform, and the consequences for the planet could be drastic. And to protect coal and fossil fuels there is now a 30% tax on imported renewable energy solar panels. There is a consistency in this protectionism with MAGA but it is damaging to the planet. [If I knew more I suspect there would be examples where removal of protections have benefitted the 1% – presumably that would also be MAGA]. And, of course, protectionism is not consistent with libertarian principles.

It is time that all libertarians remove any credibility their intellectualism gives the Trump administration, and question their political allegiance. Libertarians, Trump is using his deplorable base and your intellectual credibility to push through policies to benefit 1%-accumulation to the detriment of the planet and humanity.

This is not freedom.

But if libertarians did question, what would happen to their funding?

Do the 1% want Trump?

Posted: 13/01/2018 by zandtao in Freedom, Science
Tags: , ,


Again I have enjoyed the clarity of a Black Agenda Report article, as far as I know (being British and living far away in Thailand) this gives a clear analysis of Democrats, neoliberalism and the need for change.

However there was one statement that jumped out at me:-

“The ruling class desperately want to replace Trump for fear that his rise to the Oval Office marks the beginning of the end of the two-party arrangement in Washington.”

Initially I felt the 1% were not supporting Trump during his campaign for presidency. Once nominated he became Republican and not Trump so the 1% supported him begrudgingly. Once he got in I think they were jittery. The 1%-profits come from their manipulation of trade, his deplorable approach might have had impact on the way business is conducted. I now feel the 1% are behind Trump because he is delivering more profits – increasing wars-for-profits for example. For the 1% racism is just a tool for promoting division and thus ensuring the continuation of profits. It seems to me that Trump policies don’t matter to the 1%, his rhetoric increases antagonism between deplorables and liberals, and the 1% can exploit that situation.

That antagonism is symbolised in the two-party system of neoliberalism, and that arrangement is something that the 1% control and can exploit. I agree with that. And the “better the system they know” might apply to this 1%-control. But the 1% did not invent the two-party neoliberal parlour game, historically one party has always grown out of struggle and then with 1%-backing taken over by opportunists and become part of the 2-party neoliberalism and under 1%-control.

What if Trump-fascism does end 2-party neoliberalism? How would this impact on the 1%-profits? I don’t know but I think fascism would enable total control of the profit-making. Over his presidency I think I have perceived an increasing alignment between Trump and the 1% – how would I know? Trump is an excellent vehicle for the 1%. He is obnoxious, hated by the majority, and a complete maverick. The 1% however appear to keep their distance. If he loses, he can be ditched by the 1%, blamed for being in collusion with the Russians, blamed for being a racist, and blamed for being crazy. If Trump became too oppressive it would be so easy for the 1% to finance a new liberalism, and recreate the two-party neoliberalism that functions so well for them at the moment.

Trump is a perfect 1%-scapegoat, and I think they will milk him for as long as possible so long as they benefit.

Of course with a Trump-extreme world the 1% might become divided??

I read this good blogpost, and decided to respond. It became long-ish so it is now a blogpost.

This article is blunt and clear, but if the analysis that Trump voters are only racists and unchangeable is correct this does not bode well for the US.

I am not sure if this is true. At present I see Trump voters as an alliance of 3 groups. Firstly there are the deplorables – the racists, secondly there are the 1%, and thirdly there are the right-wing intellectuals. The 1% are not important in terms of the number of voters but are Republicans. I think most were very distrustful of Trump to begin with – see early comments in Fortune and WSJ, most did not support his campaign for President, but as he has delivered on the 1%-agenda they are now backing him.

However the third group, the right-wing intellectuals, might be winnable. They are anti-liberal – as am I as a socialist. The sanctimony of liberalism alienates many – especially individulaists. Individualists who put individualism first see the bleating demands of liberals as an infringement of their liberty, and it is attacks on their liberty that matter. These people are not emotional racists (deplorables) but institutional racists as their individualism effectively leads to racism – in this situation their institutional racism led to a Trump-vote. But these people are winnable because at the root of their individualism is some level of compassion. This is important because their compassion has to put them at odds with Trump, their compassion puts them at odds with being called racists – despite their institutional racism.

These people are sick of liberals and neoliberalism, and the question is “who are they more sick of?” – liberals and neoliberalism or Trump. These are people who might well have voted for Sanders but could not vote for Hillary. It is most important that the Democrats get a popular candidate (unblemished) or Bernie, Hillary is the same old problem of neoliberalism.

I think these right-wing intellectuals are important because they give credence to voters who are not deplorable; they also have more influence than their numbers because of their analysis. But the issue is jobs. If the jobs come, they have not so far – despite the Trump rhetoric, then the right-wing intellectuals will work for Trump. Whilst this is racist the issue is not race.

My concern is that the 1% know the issue is jobs. If Trump is still producing the goods for them by 2019, the 1% will provide more jobs and the US and the world will have four more years of the Deplorable.

Misery

There seems no end to the misery. From Horizontalidad in the early 90s through the Arab Spring to Occupy (tag) throughout the world and finally OWS, there had been some hope. But the enemy, the 1%, became marked in this movement – and that scared them. So the 1% found the answer, create confusion on the internet by funding all and sundry. Now we have complete chaos, there is no clear genuine left alternative.

In this article Paul Street describes the chaos that would have ensued if Hillary had won. In the article there is a much clearer understanding of on-the-ground US neoliberal politics than anything I could offer from afar. What it definitely shows is the chaos that is now US neoliberal politics. What we now have is the 1%, 2% – a genuine left alternative, and 97% total confusion (I have no basis for the exactness of these figures).

Liberal-bashing is now the fashion amongst the right, and liberal-bleating of a defence is the current level of response. Whilst this is obvious in the US it is occurring throughout the West. The good-old Liberal Obama set the scene for the world’s current greatest humanitarian disaster by sending drones to Yemen. Trump’s alliance with Saudi has seeded the destruction, and the Liberals barely bleat. They cannot do anything about it so they don’t bleat. But if they scream and shout about LBGT toilets, maybe they can do something – and their parties are fine. This is a right-wing created issue to bait the Liberals, meanwhile the real destruction goes on across the world – War for profits in the name of Western neoliberalism.

Is there a solution? Paul talks about a genuine left alternative, but can that ever happen? Since Marx there has been a clear analysis of the source of the problems – the bourgeois 1%, yet we now have a “2%”- acceptance of this. It appears to me that acceptance of this has been on the decrease in my lifetime – not helped at all by the continual left-wing squabbling before the recent “chaos” funding. This leads to the question, can there ever be a united 99%? If we look at the chaos now, the answer seems a resounding no.

Now it is particularly bad but I wonder if the answer could ever have been yes.

To try to get at this we need to look at conditioning. If we move beyond our conditioning we do not accept the 1%-system of neoliberalism, we see that all that matters is compassion. Not, who is in charge? Not, which system do we use? But compassion, compassion for all people. If we are compassionate we don’t fight wars. If we are compassionate we don’t treat people as wage-slaves. We care for people, who they are, and who they could be if enabled. Compassion ends suffering, ends the misery our world is in because of 1%-exploitation (mostly western) and the endless façade of populism, liberal-bashing-and-bleating – neoliberalism. The world needs compassion.

A conditioned person does not put compassion first. When people hear of humanitarian disaster in Yemen, compassion is not the first response; it is conditioning. Muslims, we should protect people but …. If we send money do we look after ourselves? We are good people, our governments cannot be causing wars just for profits, there has to be something wrong with these others. All of these responses are conditioned. The first objective needs to be compassion, put compassion first and leave out the conditioning. When there is a world where compassionate response comes first, then we have a world without division, and division is what is causing the misery. If Rockefeller says we cannot have compassion because my standard of living goes down, we laugh at his greed. Do we laugh at the greed if it is said at the golf club, the country house, etc.? When we look at the poverty that exists in the desert we, right-wing and liberals, are afraid, we, right-wing and liberals, become greedy in case our standard of living is affected, the compassionate and the non-liberal left (different) say “care for them at all costs”.

So why do I differ the compassionate and the non-liberal left? The non-liberal left put their systems, their ideologies first. They are conditioned to believe in systems, that is their education, their intellectualism. As a result of this belief in systems, for years the non-liberal left has fought each other, Commies vs Trots, which version of Marxism is right etc. And whilst they fought, the 1% continued exploitation, and the misery continued – has grown? When there was some crystallisation of action through Horizontalidad and Occupy, there became the funded chaos. Because we were all still responding on a conditioned level – even if that conditioned response is against the system, it was easy to create funded chaos by attacking theories. You cannot attack unconditioned compassion except by greed and selfishness

Can we ever fight our conditioning and become an unconditioned 99% – 100%? Can we ever be a compassionate 99% – a compassionate 100%? I doubt it. Can the 99% unite behind a theory without compassion and without removing conditioning? The evidence so far is no, I think no with the theories -permanently.

But compassion and removal of conditioning is a big ask. But it is a better objective than asking for 99% to believe in a system.

But before erstwhile comrades jump down my neck, where does compassion and removal of conditioning take us? In mid-19th century it would have taken us to a Marxist analysis of the exploitation by the bourgeois, now it takes us to seeing the 1%-system in the world. But compassion does not ask “do we believe in Marxism?”, it asks “how does understanding Marx lead to compassion?” And the actions are little different, but there is not the rhetorical arguing over systems and theories. Don’t be conditioned into believing a different theory, be compassionate.

Remove conditioning, make our first response compassion globally, have Unity through forgetting our theories.

Or have the misery that is continuing.

When we act with compassion there are no wars, there is no slavery.
