In this writers last posting a reality check was suggested because things are not always what they appear. Well it turns out that the opposite occurs also because some things really are as they appear.
A few day ago America celebrated its most important holiday; Independence Day. A day bursting with fire crackers, neighborhood, and family picnics. A great time for merry making. What Americans celebrate is far different from what their government celebrates.
For the United States government, it is a celebration of the surrender of freedom and liberty at home. To the absolute shame of Americans for allowing it to occur. It does not stop at our doorstep, but is perpetuated around the world. American troops dying in Iraq has nothing to do with exporting freedom, liberty,and democracy. And again, Americans are shamed because collectively, we refuse to end the slaughter of Americans in a land in which they do not belong, But the war has everything to do with capturing Iraqi oil fields, and other corporate interests. And nothing to do with liberty, freedom, and democracy.
So in the end, things really are as they appear.
America from its inception was never really about liberty, freedom, and democracy. The founding fathers new it was just sounded more exemplary more moral, and not as corrupting to sling such expressions as liberty, freedom, and democracy. Rather than an open admission that this infant nation was to be about wealth for the few at the expense of the many. Which means some things are what they appear to be, it just requires a reality check. And sure enough. it will be discovered that things are not what they appear to be.
The founding fathers worked hard to create this mirage of images reflecting illusions of liberty, freedom, and democracy. The trail of tears is endless in American history. Starting with the illegal taking of land from the indigenous people. To the declaration that human beings were the rightful property of others. That women were second class citizens because they were the property of their husbands. Again we see that things are what they appear to be which is the securing of money at the wrongful expense of others. Making some things not what they appear to be when it is about liberty, freedom, and democracy.
What other explanation could exist for the theft of land and property, or the notion that humans could be owned by others, or that women were the property of their husbands. It was all about economics! After all, how could an empire be built on some land owned by another people, People being owned by others made good economic sense. A free labor pool! And women, to the founding fathers had to be property for the purpose of child bearing and rearing. It all made economic sense.
The United States Constitution is first and for most an economic blueprint. This writer once took a course covering the Constitution as an economic document. One of the text books used was titled, “An Economic Interpretation Of The United States Constitution,” authored by Charles A. Beard. Great book, great course, but unfortunately the book is no longer in print. This writer hunted and hunted for that book years later. And found it among discarded books about to be burned.
To this day, the United States is about profits through out Tampa Bay, the nation, and around the world. The history books are filed with these truths. As are the shelves of the law libraries resulting from successful litigation’s, in behalf of indigenous people, slaves, and women.
And, the Unites States is not finished. Says the Army recruiter, boys and girls listen up! Sign up and end up in Iraq! Army life is tough. Your country is asking you to be prepared to sacrifice your life so a people far away can experience liberty, freedom, and democracy. That’s the America of appearances where things are not as they appear.
Because that Army recruiter should be saying. Boys and girls listen up,,, your country needs you to be prepared to sacrifice your life. So America can have control of the vast Iraqi oil fields. And American corporations can profit in the billions of dollars, from the reconstruction of Iraq. Which will include military bases for the launching of attacks upon other nations in the region, who refuse to bow to American supremacy.
So in the end things really are as they appear. It just takes a good reality check in order to sort through the vast, and sometimes confusing complexities of life. In the end though reality will prevail.
This whole freedom, liberty, and democracy thing is only a good for sell theft (indigenous lands) (mutilation of slaves) and (degradation of women) then. Now it is the theft of economic equality, the denial of opportunity, and women as objects. It is as things appear; about money. And the history books show this history. As do the law libraries, with case histories.
