Tahrir Square, Cairo, February 4, 2011
[As per usual: President Obama and Hillbilly Hillary are staying supportive of our Dickboy in Egypt, Mubarak--who, as we reveal later, is said to now be worth between 40 and 70 Billion Dollars!!!! (That sounds overblown to me; that would make Mubarak as rich as New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg!!!) Egypt one of places where our Military Industrial Complex tries out new weapons (Egypt and Israel)--and we sell Egypt millions of dollars worth of weapons--including teargas--year in year out. Our media, even our more progressive media (I'm talking about our copycat blog, The Daily Beast) are calling the Egyptian revolutionists "a mob"--adding on that a mob never brought about democracy. Only invasion and occupation brings about democracy, as in Iraq and Afghanistan. Inevitable: Mubarak may have to be driven out on a rail by the revolutionists (over 50% of the Egyptian population is under 25 years old)--except that I'm sure he's well protected by our CIA assassination squads and his own US-trained goon squads and secret police against the EVIL, according to our media, Muslim Brotherhood (again this is a male cat fight). Bulletin: Unka Dick Cheney just called Mubarak a very good personal friend and friend of the USA. That settles it: LONG LIVE MUBARAK! Fuck the People of Egypt!!!]
The True Workings of Revolution
I am sitting here truly amazed at what's going on in Egypt. The masses are off their asses and in the streets and that's the key to immediate revolution. And revolt the People must. Every government of every country in the world is corrupt. Can I make that statement with any authority? Yes. On what authority? On the authority of the fact that my time line is long enough that I've retained more compilations of thinking about history and living through history, a history of constant change, a history which has to be constantly observed. As a writer, a musician, and a Sociologist, I see things in terms of characterizations. What types of characters succeed and what types inevitably fail. It's a matter of individual character as well as collective character.
We tend to picture people as either familiar to us or not. Like Egyptians. What does the average dunce-like American know about Egypt? We all should know a lot about it since so many of our current beliefs and mores and religions and astrological directions came straight from our fountainhead in Africa that flowed naturally from south to north to end in a cumulative effect in Ancient Cairo and Ancient Alexandria.
Is this a true revolution? I say YES. When the people pour into the streets, when they are so oppressed they are willing to put their asses on the line, that is when a true revolution begins. Not an ideological one but a true one, a spontaneous one--spontaneous combustion--the combustion being the people being blown out of their fear of their oppressors and into the sunlight of honest protestant reacting--"That does it! I'm going into the street, dammit. Fuck the police, the secret police, the CIA, the national army, the goon squads"--and these characters should be expected--but we see, from the Egypt experience, that if the people continue amassing, continue to fill the streets, continue to fill the plazas (and they've taken over Tahrir Square with sheer numbers). Yes, some are going to die, something like 400 have died in Cairo already, but think of what happens if you live, if you survive, if through numbers you overwhelm these petty power-mad ruthless individual assholes who use their power to help themselves gain admittance to the World's Power Elite--and the USA gave Mubarak a back-door invitation thanks to the USA crowning him OUR MAN in Egypt [Mubarak's personal fortune is said to be between 40 and 70 BILLION dollars--ask yourself how did a political leader get to be that rich? His money by the way is socked away in Swiss and US bank accounts]. Did you ever ask yourself why President Obama chose Egypt from which to make his great (insincere, of course) speech of his love of Muslims and Islamics, etc? Of course, President Obama is blowing another chance at becoming a vaunted world leader. He should be cheering the people of Egypt on, but, of course, he isn't--hell, it looks like he can't. And how stupid are Hillbilly Hilary's words--I mean she was talking out a multiple amount of sides of her mouth as she tried to defend the US's love of Mubarak ("Think of your legacy" Obama told him) and her fear of a true revolt of the people--fill the streets, fill the plazas--and again today (Friday, February 4, 2011) Tahrir Square is packed with protesters (revolutionists). And all over Northern Africa and the Middle East, these spontaneous revolutions (Facebook revolutions) have so far sent Tunisia's president into exile; Algeria's president is doing a bunk; there were protests in the streets of Damascus today; the protests in Yemen have driven out another US puppet dictator--remember now, Yemen is considered by us as a nest of Al-Queda cells ruled over by that US-citizen cleric who Obama by executive order has authorized the CIA or whomever to assassinate--yes, Obama has the right as commander in chief to render someone assassinatable as an enemy combatant (terrorist) no matter if he is an American citizen whose rights (right or wrong) to have a fast and fair trial--a chance to face his accusers before a jury of his peers--are guaranteed by the Constitution; and there were protests in Jordan that brought on a cabinet change. It's wonderful really. These Muslim states have put up long enough (centuries) with the Medieval ways of being ruled--RELIGIONS ARE OPPRESSIVE--RELIGIONS ARE PUNISHMENT FOR LOVING LIFE AND WANTING TO BE FREE TO ENJOY LIFE ON THIS BEAUTIFUL AND MOTHER-and-FATHER OF US ALL planet. And there are tons of Muslim people now ready to pour into the plazas--could it be the Muslims who end up leading us into World Peace?
From the American Heritage Dictionary:
- Assassin A member of a secret order of Muslims who terrorized and killed Christian Crusaders and others.
Origin: French, from Medieval Latin assassīnus, from Arabic ḥaššāšīn, pl. of ḥaššāš, hashish user, from ḥašīš, hashish; see hashish .Word History: Active in Persia and Syria from the 8th to 14th centuries, the original Assassins were members of the Nizaris, a Muslim group who opposed the Abbasid caliphate with threats of sudden assassination by their secret agents. Other populations of the area regarded the Nizaris as unorthodox outcasts, and from this attitude came one of the names for the group, ḥaššāšīn, a word originally meaning “hashish users,” which had become a general term of abuse. Reliable sources offer no evidence of hashish use by Nizari agents, but sensationalistic stories of murderous, drug-crazed ḥaššāšīn or Assassins were widely repeated in Europe. Marco Polo tells a tale of how young Assassins were given a potion and made to yearn for paradise—their reward for dying in action—by being given a life of pleasure. As the legends spread, the word ḥaššāšīn passed through French or Italian and appeared in English as assassin in the 16th century, already with meanings like “treacherous killer.”
Let the secular world be FREE. Impound all religions within their temples, cathedrals, mosques, walled enclaves--confiscate all their wealth. Listen to me, a Man-Wolf growling out instructions. All of us are characters on the same world stage--our roles in terms of our positions on that stage are emoted in different tongues via different cultural ways of institutionalizing or civilizing, but the direction and the acting and story are all the same.
I leave you with an appropriate quote from America's first billionaire:
It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.
