American Capitalism is preserved by two essential and integral factors: fraud and force. Fraud is the ideological and cultural hegemony of the capitalist creed: that enterprise is free and competition exists for all in the marketplace; that success is available for all who work hard, accumulate capital, and participate as voters in the electoral process; that democratic government is dependent upon the freedom to own private property. Blacks, Latinos, and white workers are barraged daily with illusions about the inherent justice and equal opportunity within the American System. The educational institutions, churches, media and popular culture all in their own way participate in creating the logical framework for a system that remains irrational and inhumane. Beneath the velvet glove of fraud exists the iron fist of force. For reasons of history, Black people are more aware than whites of this delicate dichotomy between consensus vs. coercion. The essence of slavery was coercion of the most primitive kind - the relationships between master and slave were characterized by mutual distrust, fear, hatred and undisguised force. All slaves, whether the proverbial Uncle Toms or Nat Turners, recognized that production could not take place without the daily use of physical or psychological violence. Even the most paternalistic master had to divide Black families occasionally or employ the whip to get the crop to market on schedule. Under industrial capitalism, however, the essence of production involves force of a different kind: the extraction of surplus value from the labor power of the worker. Force is generally disguised within capitalist societies with democratic forms of government. The worker never receives the actual or real value of his/her own labor, but is technically “free” to sell his/her skills or services to the highest bidder, or employer. Blue collar and service workers are “less free” than professional workers, but all are forced to accept the conditions of employment that the owners of capital are willing to grant.

 “In 1991 Iraq had significant capability in the area of chemical weapons, biological weapons, nuclear weapons production capability and long-range ballistic missile manufacturing capability. By 1998 the chemical weapons infrastructure had been completely dismantled or destroyed by UNSCOM, or by Iraq in compliance with UNSCOM’s mandate. The biological weapons program had been declared in it’s totality late in the game, but it was gone. All the major facilities eliminated. The nuclear weapons program? again, completely eliminated. The long-range ballistic missile program? completely eliminated. All that was left was the research and development and manufacturing capability for missiles with a range less than 150 kilometers, a permitted activity. Everything that we set out to destroy in 1991, the physical infrastructure had been eliminated. So, if I had to quantify Iraq’s threat in terms of weapons of mass destruction, the real threat is zero. None.”  “It’s a great shame on the black political tradition, and the United States to have a warmonger. It’s almost as if the black community in the United States, maybe we’ve lost our innocence too. Because, it would be very difficult to find a black person in the United States, just an average ordinary person who supports any of these wars, and yet these wars are being carried out in black face.” (John Pilger asks Assange if he’s saying that money and money making is at the center of modern war and it’s self-perpetuating)  “Yes, and it’s becoming worse.”

Reblog this if it is okay to come to you and just vent my heart out, cry to you, yell to you, or just chat with you. We are all in need of somebody to talk to.
I love jacuzzis but I hate the fact that I have to take a shower right after I get out of them because I’m usually sweating.
