Takuan Seiyo – Goodbye To All ThatPage 2 of 12
money-printing campaign in the history of the world brings its likely Weimarianconsequences in 3 -5 years from now, people will wake up in hindsight to the stupidity,arrogance and gross misjudgment of their ruling elites in non-fiscal matters as well.In the preceding chapters we have run through various current news that induceastonishment at the cowardice, venality and stupidity of the West’s ruling elites everywhere --from Australia’s crypto-Marxist Kevin Rudd through America’s spendthrift neocap neocon,George W. Bush and archliberal neosoc Barack Obama, to Amsterdam’s neo-
Cohen, to the cabal of White bootlickers of Third World despotspopulating every EU, UN and all other acronymous global organizations.I have highlighted as well the many ways in which the Western populace deserves contemptfor being intimidated by primitive and mostly imported minorities living in its midst, forallowing itself to be turned into mindless Pods hypnotized by consumerism, mired in Third World altruism while its own house is on fire, brainwashed by political and commercialpropaganda, wracked by a resistible infection of racial guilt, and addicted to the daily glucosedrip from nanny governments, with candy confiscated from others.Since Revolution is not currently knocking on history’s doors, and the postmodern Westerndemocracy is rigged in such a way that a party with a truly palliative agenda has little chanceof assuming power in Pod town,
other alternatives ought to be considered, outside the box.“Alternatives outside the box” is dry technospeak behind which there are choices full of pain,struggle, wrenching drama and uncertainty. But then, we are trapped in a loony bin, watchinga play that might as well be called
The Persecution and Assassination of Reality asPerformed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Snatchland Under the Direction of the Marquisesd’ Elite
, after that nearly-eponymous work by Peter Weiss about the Marquis de Sade’s careeras a dramaturgist among the crazies.
The asylum’s restraining device, a chain and ball, is made of paper. The United States FederalTax Code takes up 67,024 pages. The Federal Register, i.e. government rules and regulations,takes up 78,000 pages. These 145,000 pages, weighing about 730 kg, are just the nucleus of the crushing grid within which the American citizen has to try to go about his daily life. Inaddition, there are tens of thousands pages more of tax codes and sundry regulations in eachof the 50 states. In addition, each spending bill with which U.S. Congress further destroys thecountry and debauches its money, is over 1,000 pages long and rarely read by the people who vote on it.In Europe, there were 80,000 pages
of EU laws and regulations in 2005, 90,000
in 2006,and probably at least 100,000 now. Combined with the legal and tax code of each country, theEU citizen conducts his life with well over a ton of paper hanging from his neck.To quantify the measure of the insanity further, it suffices to grasp that the outstandingnominal value of global swaps and derivatives at the end of 2008 was $531.2 trillion.
Estimated Gross World Product in 2008 was $70.65 trillion.
We have therefore in our asylum inmates on the upper financial floor, hanging beyond theparapet with all of us in tow, unspooling toilet paper that they swear is worth 7.5 times thetotal value of all the goods and services produced on Planet Earth. And all of the West’s
