Death

Oh.. that word that brings on somber thoughts…When will we face it, how will it happen? Most of us never know until that very moment: exhilarating, terrifying, depressing, final… I sit here on a Saturday night 11 o’clock at night in my study…Sipping Jameson whiskey, listening to my favorite songs as they randomly play from my music library, Nietzsche was spot on when he said:Without music, life would be a mistake‘Was I right, or wrong’ By Lynyrd Skynyrd comes on…A great song, a song I like, and with my elevated spirits enhanced by erb and smooth whiskey, I feel the music in my bonesA song about the death of ones parents…I look around my study…I have crafted it well, it fits me, it is an expression of me…The ambience is my total creation…Much to the chagrin of my wife I might add, she was fooled enough to think ‘our‘ study was actually “ours”…Oh no…this is my sanctuary…I need it… I delve into great the  moments & minds of history here; explore everything from society to self, contemplate existence..The Jewish Question…lock the door and masturbate here– followed by disappointment for breaking my vow of better self control in that area ‘You’re not an animal– master your primal urges!’ I tell myself… Yes this room, more than any other, is home… It is me… as the sorrow-some song about the death of ones parents plays on, I look at the pictures that fill my walls… Great men…All dead… I am surrounded by death I realize… Straight ahead of me: Nietzsche a great mind, long dead and gone, Yukio Mishima a warrior poet, that not only spilled his guts into his  literary work but literally spilled his guts in a act of Seppuku…A Wagner poster with a funeral scene…20160508_020015.jpg

To my left, Codreanu  who was strangled, shot, mutilated with acid and buried in a nameless grave…Next to him, the Arch Angel Michael (the poster deity for Codreanu’s Iron Guard) in the process of driving a sword threw a demons neck…20160508_020021.jpg

To my right a replica painting of The ‘Oath of Horatti’, ‘It depicts a scene from a Roman legend about a dispute between two warring cities, Rome and Alba Longa, and stresses the importance of patriotism and masculine self-sacrifice for one’s country’. The brothers reach out, giving a Roman solute…Two of them will not make it back…The sisters cry in the corner, no matter who wins they will lose, as the battle is between their brothers and their husbands…20160508_020037.jpg

Behind me… Mussolini with his famous quote  on a horse giving a solar solute, so full of life and proud…What the savages did to him…How they desecrated his body…bring feeling of violence to me every-time I think about it…Next to him, the Greatest Italian, possibly, the Greatest man period: Julius Caesar, being stabbed to death by the very people he showed mercy to…20160508_020051.jpg

On top a book shelf I find the Goddess Fortune, and the Grim Reaper staring at me…Along side a picture of me and a deceased comrade hailing the camera as a friend captured the moment in time… 20160508_020101.jpg

Yea it’s safe to say, death is a thought that has preoccupied my mind for a long time.  Always present, always there…I see it manifest itself through my subconscious into my self created sanctuary… My brain…my poor brain, so many things done to it, so many memories, so many things forgotten…Drugs..Alcohol,  violent blunt traumas… have all done their share to cloud my brain…books, movies, documentaries, life experiences, thoughts, conversations, have done their part to occupy my mind…Child-hood memories…early ones are so cloudy, and fleeting…But vividly, I remember the day death entered my life…It was that moment I realized one day my parents would die, gone and never to return..What a terrifying, and depressing day…I cried all day… And something in me died that day, like  the penalty  Adam faced for eating the apple, I had been thrusted into realization of mortality; a part of  my innocence was eviscerated the very second of realization… I look at my forearm…the Grim Reaper tattooed to it with the words “Death walks behind you“.. A reminder…A much needed reminder whenever complacency comes over me….So yea death has had it’s long lasting effect on me…But not in a negative way...It is actually positive, as morbid as that sounds: a reminder, a wonder, a fear, an anticipation, a motivator…So many masks death wears… And I know I am not alone in this…There is a comfort in that.

“The average person has the most fear of death and in reality thinks most rarely about it.  The prominent one occupies himself with it most persistently but nevertheless fears it the least. The one lives blindly day to day, sinning away, only to sink down before the grim reaper. The other carefully observes his approach but then looks him in the eye, calm and composed”—– Adolf Hitler

I don’t know how many gems I have heard that great man say…But that’s definitely one of my favorites.

Occupation with death is not a fear of it, but a respect of it. How to face this moment? A ‘mors triumphalis’ (triumphal death) should be the desire of every man, but only we, independently, can decide what is a good death.For me a good death is: either very old and satisfied, or in struggle, at any moment, for something I love: a friend, family, people, nation, ideal... If I die because of the damage of the shit food  soulless capitalism encouraged me to eat and drink, or poisons tobacco that I was addicted to during my youth, then know that very last millisecond of consciousness will be filled with disappointment.. Like Enson Inoue, I believe “Live like a Man, Die like a Man, Become a Man“.. And dying because my heart gives out on me due to sloth, or gluttony is not the death of a man… Therefore I would not have died a man, and left a good impression on my loved ones…

I’m gonna miss my loved ones,and they will miss me is the sorrow of death, and ‘where do we go’ is the wonder of death…Personally I believe as Schopenhauer said: After your death you will be what you were before your birth.

Schopenhauer’s definition of death  may sound nihilistic, but it does not feel nihilistic, at least not in the ‘Mitchell Heisman’ sense… Heisman… the crazy intelligent Jew who blew his brains out all over the steps of a synagogue just to test/prove his nihilistic theory of meaningless life… No I’m the opposite, I appreciate, enjoy, and respect each living second…I have all of eternity for death, so I will value this relatively short conscious life… Didn’t Heisman know science is trying to extend life exponentially ? I look in favor at rule breaking ingenious like Aubrey De grey who attempt to extend life, but I then I look to great disappointment to the mass of people who’s thoughts are more occupied with Kim Kardashian ass.

I guess this could even be at the core of why I am a Fascist, and long for Fascism in America..I understand the benefit of a structured and scientific society…The possibilities…I also understand the shallow existence that is liberal capitalism. Hey i get to buy shit! great! The miracle of consciousness, all for the purpose of working meaningless jobs and buying meaningless shit… How ‘they’ ever pulled that one over on us… Anyways, as you  reach the end of this rant on death I leave you with the words I live by, and the words I think you too should live by, from the HagakureIn a 50-50 life or death crisis, choose death.

 

When it’s 50-50 charge forward my friend… The only way over death is through death.

Two beautiful tragic videos:

The last minutes of Yukio Mishima recreated in the absolutely wonderful  movie “Mishima life in four chapters” which intertwines 4 of his books with his real life final moments.

And how could any discussion on death be complete without the mention of the great poem on our inevitable reunion with the unknown:

And lastly, just because Death is so fuckin ‘Metal’:

Adolf Hitler was a christian carpet muncher…who might of been gay and impotent as well.

The life and times of Adolf Hitler holds a special place in my heart. Years ago (sadly too many years ago now) back when I was around 21 I was put into (through fate and my own action) quite the predicament; in order to spare the reader a long detour having nothing to do with Hitler’s life I’ll sum it up like this: after a drunken brawl in the parking lot of a bar my attacker lay dead and I remained alive sitting in a jail cell facing a life sentence in prison.

With the dreadful possibility of spending the rest of my life (or even the majority of it) behind bars I had to convince myself of a reason to live if the worst outcome of life in prison were to befall me… I found that reason, and that reason was: Knowledge. I would learn about the world: past, present and future, more importantly I would learn about myself, and maybe even improve myself!

Now that I had some go in me, I began to read, and think like I never had before… My shoty American brain, raised on TV, public school, and porn now began to learn about the great past struggles and victories of mankind, the awe-inspiring theories and thoughts of great thinkers, and the countless sacrifices of brave souls to move the wheels of time forward.

There was a library in the county jail I was in, and when I was not reading state law to prepare for trial, I was escaping (in mind at least) in a book. One day, with the same morbid curiosity one would pick up a book on Ted Bundy with, I picked up Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler… It was finally time to see what History’s most evil man ever had to say for himself!

I began to read, and it did not take long for me to have a diamond bullet to the brain moment, followed by many more… The Germany he feared was the America I lived in- thoughts of community over individualism,but I had been so selfish up till then living for my pleasures over everything else- a never ending quest to understand and improve yourself-the Jewish Question(which I spent the follow decade or so obsessing over)…Of the many things that dawned on me as I read what really suck out was the fact of how much I have been lied to. My TV, my teachers, my friends, my parents, all lied to me, and to add insult to injury the truth was in plain sight the whole time!

From that moment (as often happens when someone or something has a major impact on your life) Hitler became a demigod in my mind, I placed him on a pedestal, he wasn’t even Human anymore, he was a messiah… some people stop there, but I went on, learned more about him, his views, his politics, his character, and naturally the more I learned of him the less godly he became: flaws, weaknesses, disagreements, contradictions until finally he became who he was, like all the others that have carved their names into the pillars of History: Human…be it more human than  us humans, but nevertheless Human.

 

Be he a man that tapped into his will to achieve mind-blowing results (going from a homeless artist to right up there with Jesus in worldly name recognition today), he by far was not the first person to climb to great heights from such low starting positions…. But, despite the historical arguments of this or that ancient Greek taking pecker or not, no one by far has had the cloud of confusion around them as Adolf Hitler does.

The more I became acquainted with the internet {Fortune  blessed me with a charge of imperfect self-defense; got a handful of years } the more I theories I saw, and people taking these theories seriously, despite the very shaky foundations.

Off the top of my head I can recall quite a few:

Hitler was gay

Hitler was a womanizer

Hitler was a child molester

Hitler was involved in incest

Hitler was a sociopath

Hitler loved his niece

Hitler was impotent

Hitler had syphilis

Hitler was Atheist

Hitler was Christian

Hitler in fits of rage, would jump to the floor and chew the edges of carpets

Hitler hated Jews because he was denied into Art school

Being gassed in WW1 turned Hitler into a great public speaker

Hitler was Jewish

Hitler was a Rothschild

Hitler was a coward

Hitler was a megalomaniac who sought power for himself above all

Hitler was subservient to international bankers

Hitler disarmed(gun laws) the German public

If I sit here and think longer on it I am sure a few more claims will come to me from my foggy memory… But you get the point, of course you do, you grew up like I in this world Internationale, we all learned and heard the same things about this come to life comic book villain character named simply: Hitler.

But what of it all…all the claims, many of them contradicting, what is actually comic book and what is reality… unfortunately like most things not experienced by the self, the complete reality may never be known, but, thankfully much does exist. And if even, as all things of History, we may not know the complete puzzle, we do have many pieces in this case which can at least show us a good portion of the picture and help us at least have an educated imagination about whatever pieces remain missing.

The knee jerk reaction as to why so much contradicting confusion surrounds Hitler is, of course: Jews Own The media! But wait! Even though there is validity to the accusation Remember… when you point your finger at someone three fingers are pointing right back at you. And so it is in this case as well.

Many of us have been in arguments with people or seen arguments where both sides differed vastly on a subject, but both professed to know the truth or have the best solution. How could two people be so different but so convinced on a single topic? As, has kinda just been generally known or suspected for quite some time, and possibly being even confirmed by science: people tend to view things through their own filter, once they have adopted a worldview they tend to view the world under a certain perspective.  The same can be implied to hero and villain worship: The people who viewed Adolph Hitler as a villain, would believe and promote things that they personally found insulting or evil as part of Hitlers characteristic- parallelly the people who viewed him a hero would attribute things they admired or deemed good as his characteristics… although, there are times were both sides were right in their judgements, hardly ever would one side concede the other side might be right in any manner.

Therefore the atheist who viewed Hitler as Dr. Doom incarnate  would claim Hitler was a devout Christian, and the right wing American who despised Hitler of course knew Hitler was a gun grabber just like the modern day libs he hated so much. The multi-racialist who adored Hitler would say: when Hitler said ‘folk’, he meant ‘all races of man’, not just Germans or the Christian who adored Hitler would view him as  bonafide Knights Templar spreading the word of god almighty himself.

So who was this man then? Can I even try to tackle that question without exposing my own bias? Who knows?

But what I do know is that of the long list of misnomers, I am aware of a few answers and a few logical fallacies…and while i may not be the foremost authority of all things Hitler I’d be willing to bet I know a thing or two Joe Public might not know.

Of the long list of contradictions listed, some of them are so far-fetched from reality that it is not even worth expanding on here, others, I truly am in no position to know, as is anyone really for that matter…but there are a few things that are on the list that I do feel can be explained and/or proven…. For instance:

 

 

Hitler was a sociopath

 

Well at least according to Walter Charles Langer, and repeated by many others… I am sure Langer went through the same pains I have to try to recognize and eliminate bias on the matter, or are we to believe someone of Jewish ancestry would have no bias to reconcile with dealing with the topic of the worlds biggest Jew-hater?

Sure it’s feasible…I mean aren’t all animal loving, vegetarian, artists  stone cold remorseless murders?

When looking up the symptoms of psychopathy it is very easy to see that there are points in one’s life when you could show each and every ‘symptom’ of being a sociopath. That aside, why label someone a sociopath? And why the need to repeat it by many others? because, clearly, it diminishes the person: hey look this guy, all the things he believed, said, and did, he was just a mental defect man… just a case of crazy nothing else to see here…move along now. Sooo, good luck now trying to paint a fuller picture of this Hitler guy to someone who looks at him like Charlie Manson soundbites.

All the people that have deemed Hitler evil of course need to believe he is crazy in some way or a product of the devil, it’s either one or the other with folks around here….. Because you see I am sane and good, and I hate the idea of Hitler, so of course If I am sane and good he must be crazy and evil! Simple math you see…

The reality being: Hitler has shown many moments in his life where he completely contradicts Langer’s diagnosis and he has shown times where he fits the symptoms-I have had moments in my life where I completely contradict the definition of a sociopath and I have I had times in my life where I embrace the symptoms-YOU have had moments in your life where… etc

Now the reality of a real live sociopath vs the conditions just being junk science is another topic. But as far as Hitler is concerned it is just simply repeated and promoted merely in slanderous intent.

 

Hitler was a Jew!

Oh you didn’t know?

To the person not familiar with the Jewish/Zionist world conspiracy internet scene this might seem like a laughable statement, but make no mistake this is a hot button topic that has had many a blog and forum wars started in that little corner of the internet.

The plot also thickens, because not only is Adolf a Jew but a Rothschild! And from there the rabbit hole keeps going…He planned WW2 to give the bankers power and so on… I’ll avoid falling into that abyss people call a rabbit hole and just scratch the surface with Hitler’s Jewishness or lack-thereof.

The claim: Hitler’s grandmother, Maria Anna Schicklgruber was knocked up by Baron Rothschild while she was working as a maid at his house.

If we have learned anything from our beloved Arnold Schwarzenegger, it is that the help does sometimes come with extra ‘benefits’… Could this be the case with miss Schickgruber and lord Rothschild?

Let us look at what is concrete: no kind of physical evidence exits that implies Schickgruber worked as a maid in any Rothschild household. What exists is an eye-witness of a document. The document was a employee register manual for the country of Austria and it was allegedly in the possession of Engelbert Dollfuss, the Austrian dictator that was assassinated by Nazi sympathizers… So who is this eye-witness? Well a top level Gestapo of course… by the name of Hansjurgen Koehler… not ringing a bell to any of you WW2 hobby historians? Maybe because it’s a pseudonym! Yes the “high ranking Gestapo officer” so and so was no more than an anonymous author first published in the Manchester News Guardian in 1939! And this is the meat and potatoes of the Hitler was a Rothschild theory! People being so sure of something based off of what? That? Really?

In the spirt of what Nietzsche said Anyone who has declared someone else to be an idiot, a bad apple, is annoyed when it turns out in the end that he isn’t.”

You are still not convinced-of course the Rothschild theory is flimsy, it is there to distract from the real Jewish lineage of Hitler : the Frankenberger connection!

Hans Frank, Reich lawyer, investigated threats made by Hitler’s  nephew, William Patrick Hitler, born in England, William found himself in Germany conveniently around the time his uncle came to power…Long story short William wanted better positions then he was given, so he resorted to extortion…fled Germany…allegedly worked for the Brits, went back to Germany only to flee again…Joined the American military against Hitler… So yeah…no agenda there…  Frank reviewed letters, that were told to him by William to be extortion attempts by grandma Hitler to pay for her bastard child from Mr. Frankenberger. So of course these letters exist, right? No…. Well then there must be some document showing she worked for a Mr. Frankenberger.. since according to the  Rothschild conspiracy Grandma Hitler (in Vienna mind you) had to be documented because it was Austrian law! So even tho not in Vienna, Graz still being in Austria there must be documents! Nope…not a sliver, not only of grandma Hitler’s job title, but of this Frankenberger character at all! In fact even more so it is said that Jews were expelled from Graz in that time and place anyways!

Still the person who views “Jews” or “Zionists” as ‘bad,’ and also views Hitler to be ‘bad’ can use the paragraphs of non-existent evidence I have just written on to connect the dots to figure out the truth: Hitler was reptilian Jew hell bent on killing everyone in the name of banking!

Yes indeedy

Something I have seen from people on both sides of the fence when it comes to Hitler villain or hero question is the argument over what if any region was Hitler?

More to the point :

Hitler was Christian

Or so some would say…

Those fans of Hitler who fancy themselves Christian will tell you Hitler was a christian crusader fighting godless Bolshevism-the people who hate Hitler and fancy themselves atheist will tell you how he was in fact a Christian and he is a prime example of the evil results of organized religion.

So what is it?

It depends on what Hitler we ask, Public Hitler or Private Hitler… Fuck it lets ask bot,h this blog post is far too drawn out as is:

So Hitlers can we once and for all know what do you think of Christianity?

Public Hitler: “The National Socialist State professes its allegiance to positive Christianity. It will be its honest endeavour to protect both the great Christian Confessions in their rights, to secure them from interference with their doctrines (Lehren ), and in their duties to constitute a harmony with the views and the exigencies of the State of to-day.”

Private Hitler:“Christianity is a rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature. Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure.”

Public Hitler:”This Winter Help Work is also in the deepest sense a Christian work. When I see, as I so often do, poorly clad girls collecting with such infinite patience in order to care for those who are suffering from the cold while they themselves are shivering with cold, then I have the feeling that they are all apostles of a Christianity– and in truth of a Christianity which can say with greater right than any other: This is the Christianity of an honest confession, for behind it stand not words but deeds.”

Private Hitler: The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death. A slow death has something comforting about it. The dogma of Christianity gets worn away before the advances of science. Religion will have to make more and more concessions. Gradually the myths crumble. All that’s left is to prove that in nature there is no frontier between the organic and the inorganic. When understanding of the universe has become widespread, when the majority of men know that the stars are not sources of light but worlds, perhaps inhabited worlds like ours, then the Christian doctrine will be convicted of absurdity.”

You get the point…

Now this is left up to one to decide for themselves, which Hitler is closest to the real Hitler Public Hitler speaking to a Christian mass of people or Private Hitler amongst his confidants.

I for one will lean towards Private Hitler being more accurate, in fact personally from what i have read it would seem if one was forced to religiously classify Hitler he would have to be labeled an agnostic deist.

If Private Hitler is not enough how about Private Goebbels: Goebbels wrote in 1941 that Hitler “hates Christianity, because it has crippled all that is noble in humanity“.

Or what was thought to his elite guard the SS: http://www.nazi-lauck-nsdapao.com/ss-schutzstaffel-books.htm

As Private Hitler knew: “I have six divisions of SS composed of men absolutely indifferent in matters of religion. It doesn’t prevent them from going to their deaths with serenity in their souls.”

Everything from their social Darwin merit based societies to their official state supported institutions clearly show a slow loosening of the hold the Christian religion had on Germans.

While growing up I had often heard many of the greats of ancient Rome and Greece were homosexuals, so I took it at face value, not till years later when I started dissecting books on these people did I come to find that these people deemed gay, or whatever usually are done so at the slanderous writings, and gossip mongering of their enemies! And not until you have taken the time to find a decent historian who will put things into context buy supplying the quote and warning the reader of the possible motive of the quotee.

Same can be said in the accusations of Hitler’s Homosexuality claims…of course no evidence exits, just slander of connecting dots of : well there were gays in the party so Hitler must be one as well…never mind the quite possible fact he cuckolded his own propaganda minister… Oh Magda, who could blame you…

Probably the two most often brought up misnomers of Hitler is: Hitlers aggressive war started the 2nd world war and that Hitler ordered the systematic killing of Jewish peoples among others.

Hitler was in fact aggressive with Czechoslovakia and Poland, but that is not to say these countries were blameless. After Germany surrendered in WW2 the winners made quick work of rubbing the German public’s nose in the ground, fast forward some years and it was Germany’s turn for pay back…reclaiming territories in both countries that were prominently German and once recognized as German lands.

After Czechoslovakia, and Austria, Hitler was high on his own fumes, so much so that he had the media downplay Polish atrocities of Germans in the Danzig for the hope he would claim the lands without firing a shot as he had done before, but much like the story of Icarus, Hitler kept going and going until the sun burned him; Poland would not give up the land without a fight, so the atrocities stories went to front page press and Germany obliged Poland’s war fervor, and the UK and France jumped in and the rest is History.

From the German perspective it is easy to see Poland, France and the U.K as the aggressors and vice-versa from the allied side, it is easy to see Germany as the aggressor… The Allies won, therefore, Hitler was the aggressor and the Allies did everything they could to avoid war… Who was it that said “History is written by the victors”?

Now the dreaded Holocaust… all throughout the internet you can find sites and blogs that claim gas chambers never existed, and even seemingly outlandish claims of concentration camps being nothing more than summer time fun camps made to protect the Jews from the harsh realities of war… The only thing I can say about the official holocaust story is: if American murder detectives were to treat it as a murder case, they would have to let Mr. Holocaust walk free because of lack of evidence. There is no need for me at the moment to go on about the sham of the Nuremberg trials, the torture of defendants, or the scrupulous person who divulged the tale of 6 million dead, most by gassing, or that gas chambers were built up after the war and so on.  But once again, using what actual hard evidence we have, we can say Hitler never ordered the systematic killing of Jews, but what we do see is Jews being executed in camps, and on the Eastern front.

According to historian David Irving, Himmler knew of the murders of civilians, and specifically numbers of Jews executed to (learned through British intercepts) that Himmler had told  certain high ranking officials not to say anything to the Fuhrer about such activities. I have yet to read the intercepts in question, I guess we will have to wait till Irving’s book on Himmler comes out, which should be sometime this year until we can make solid judgment on the question, regardless, like many of the claims much of the Holocaust story seems to be just that: a story. With whatever amount of truth involved spun to weave a larger web of lies.

With all things context is needed, especially in the case of historical issues, and we as a people, are quick to jump to one extreme or another, everything must be black or white and fuck the grey! But I am here to simply say a large sea of grey exists and I believe most of the answers we seek lay in there.

Despite if you think Hitler was a hero, a villain, or just another politician what is most important to understand is that you have been lied to, and not only has the system purposely lied to you in some cases, but you have lied to yourself when whatever package they sold you fit right into your worldview (also sold to you by them) and you ran with it because it fit so perfectly into your box, but you didn’t look at it long enough to realize they had chipped away at the edges of fact, lacquered it up to cover the deceit and packaged it perfectly so that it would fit in your box without any difficulty.

I started this post off saying: Mein Kampf would always hold a special place in my heart because it helped me realize the magnitude of lies I had been told, but it did not stop there, it made me wonder: what else have I been lied to about? And I have spent the rest of my life finding out here and there what-else they have lied to me about, and damn that list just keeps growing.

Whatever your catalyst was I say: happy hunting as you seek that ever elusive beast truth.

 

 

Got Fascism?

No, no you don’t.

Despite what-ever you may believe about diminishing constitutional protections, and growing governmental control… It is not Fascism.

The right-wing of America will go on about Fascist Obama, and the left-wing about Fascist Bush… The Libertarian will call them both Fascists! Not one of them are correct. The most, if not only, fundamental necessity to being a Fascist is completely void in nearly all people, and parties accused of being “Fascist”. The necessity being : Unity.

To understand the true base for the political theory of Fascism, one needs to look no further then the term : Fascism it self.
Fascis stemming from Latin and meaning bundle (bundle of sticks specifically). The ideology based from our most primitive, and natural understanding of man: united we are strong.
You take one stick and hit someone over the head with it, and the stick breaks, you take that same stick and tie it together with other sticks and hit the person again over the head, and this time the head breaks. Simple, and to the point, no room for confusion or misunderstanding; strength through unity is really the only requirement of Fascism. Everything else is defined by what consists(the commonality people unite around) of the “unity” and what the goal of the unity is. All of which an can(has) differed country to country.

You’re a fucking Fascist! 

I have been told time to time, I usually reply with a warm smile and say: yes in fact, yes I am.  Which is not the typical response to the accusation of being a dreadful Fascist.  But why should I be expected to censer my vocabulary because of others ignorance?

“Fascist”  has become an abstract slander that seems to imply the person being called a “Fascist” is in some way the oppressor of the accusing party. Therefore it is easy for opposing ends of the limited political spectrum  to accuse each other of being Fascist, and be firmly convinced in the accuracy of their accusations despite the glaring informal fallacy.

Despite the negative connotation associated with Fascism these days, I for one have not become a supporter of the Fascist philosophy because I am bitter, angry, or envious… In fact quite opposite, I am in awe of the thought of possibility of what can be achieved through a unified Mankind; people working for results instead of merely capital; people living for one another, rather then only one’s self… It is a beautiful thought, or dare I say hope for humanity… There is a fondness in the thought, somewhat like the scene in John Boorman’s Excalibur: after many wars King Author’s Knights, and people unified by final victory enjoying prosperity until, as the wise sage Merlin warned “for it is the doom of men that they forget”.

 

It remains to be seen if the idea of united man is as fantastical as the King Author tale.

 

In the meantime lets try and clarify what fascism is and what it is not.

“Never go to excess, but let moderation be your guide”. —Marcus Tullius Cicero    

Fascism is the moderation of the extremes of right and left on the political scale. While Fascist doctrines are truly organic and differ from Nation to Nation there are a few basic guidelines that most Fascist countries and parties have followed and in turn these guidelines are woven into international Fascist thought.

 

Commonalities in international Fascism

 

  •  National Goals: collective goals for society, ranging from anything to do with  structure, architecture, terraforming, science, exploration, knowledge, spirituality and so on… Compare the concept of National goals to the modern concepts of Liberal Democracies where the goals are not unified, but very individual, and the goal is: the obtainment of as much capital as possible. Capital which in turn is used to consume material trinkets.  As a result an overwhelming growth of spiritual nihilism has occurred in the people, life reduced purely to the here and now… Instant gratification addicts. It is of my opinion that the meaning to life becomes not only deeper but even more fulfilled when people are bound by the common climb, linked  achievement by achievement, celebrated breakthrough after breakthrough.

 

  • Nationalism: As opposed to Communism, and international Capitalism who both strive to achieve a vapidness of individual cultures either through force or commercialism. A Iron fisted control by wealthy peoples over the less fortunate in universal laws; imposed across the board,  forcefully destroying the  natural diversity of life.

 

  • One-Archy:  A principle philosophy of Fascist thought is : Thought & Action. A room full of squabbling old men with conflicting interests, and price tags on their votes is by no means what is thought of when one thinks of the manner a people progress together.One man, entrusted with the final decision. The people: intellectuals, philosophers, scientists, blue collar workers, white collar workers, the Thought the leader, the Action; The spear point of the direction. Which also means failure, or tyranny have one person to blame. The buck truly starts and stops with the figure head of the people. The Fascist dictator, is by no means a monarchy but rather a meritocracy.  Leaders chosen because of ability not bloodlines, or wealth. A brief synopsis of historical rule shows us:  The god-kings were replaced by the kings blessed by god and nobility, those nobles blessed by god were replaced by the merchants who rule today. Too few times have men of action and vision interrupted the status quo  of ruler-ship and crossed the proverbial Rubicon.

 

  • Government oversight and/or control over  mass industry and mass media: Mass industry and media are over-looked by the state, ensuring the needs of a people are met. Over and under production are avoided, or at least attempt to avoid such things, the state meditates between workers and owners when problems arise. The economy becomes a well calculated equation that exists to serve and advance people. As opposed to heartless Capitalism which only underlying concern is profit. Instead of a attempt at a calculated direction of economy it is dog eat dog, and brotherhood takes a backseat numbers. Misuse of man can be seen through-out the whole American Liberal Capitalist Democracy…  First the Irish and other non-WASP Europeans, followed by Africans… When man moved away from slavery, the wage slave came into existence, recently the illegal Mexican immigrant population has heavily filled this role, only to slowly be replaced by machines….And of what the people of the American Nation? The citizen is tossed aside for capital… Industry gutted, small business stamped out and farms bankrupt, monopoly and oligarchy orgies in vogue.

 

  • Meritocracy: True equal opportunity of man. Schooling made available to everyone, the same level of education regardless of class, wealth, birth etc.. Advancement through ones actions and results. The communist says we are all equal despite results! The modern democracy says we all have equal opportunity, but people with more money just have more of an equal opportunity. The Fascist says we all have the same starting point and may we all finish where we are best suited.

 

 

 

 

 Common falsities of Fascism

 

“In Fascism there is no free speech

There is no actual thing as “free speech”, no matter the society all speech is and has been open to consequences. The same hold true for Fascist society. Debate on policy, philosophy and direction have always played a vital part in Fascist government. On the other hand, attacking policy, philosophy, direction, etc… Has typically been suppressed. A fine line is drawn between healthy debate, and confrontational attacks.

“Fascist are all racist”

Racialism is not a commonalty among Fascist ideologies. Some have adopted a race science philosophy other have not… Nationality on the other hand is commonalty. Today, In America specifically many racist skinheads, or White Nationalists, identify themselves or are identified by the media as “Fascist”. But in reality the average WN “fascist” has about as deep an understanding in Fascist philosophy as the average American Christian does Christianity, or the modern suburban Marxist does Communism. That is to say shallow at best.

“Fascist are religious zealots”

Much like the racism aspect, religions or lack there of depend on the individual party. Some Fascist parties have been heavily Christian, other used the political ideology as their religion… It can be said Fascist philosophy embraces spiritualism, and a profound interest and awe of the meta…So therefore not atheistic, but not universally in support of a specific religion as well.

“Fascism is war like and murderous”

Man is war like and murderous. Murder, war, slavery, hate, etc. all exist in man, and have existed in every form of government man has created, present day included. No form of government is more murderous than the other by itself. Some people, leaders, eras have been bloodier than the next, but any political system by itself can not be credited with being more violent then the next. To suggest so is pure hyperbole.

“Fascism kills individual freedom, competition, and creativity”.

Fascism is not Communism. Competition exists and is in fact encouraged. Individual freedoms typically have remained as they are today. As far as creativity, if you ever have the misfortune of living under a heavily religious Fascist regime then I could image creativity being stifled a bit. Outside of Islam I don’t foresee that even remotely being a possibility. There is a somewhat famous quote that goes:

“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”

Wrapped in the flag, maybe, carrying a cross? Not a chance. Modern Christians are included when we speak of the spiritual nihilism of modernity’s subjects. The Christain nihillist of today live for the here and now as much as the atheist. Religious Fascist movements depend on religious fanaticism, discipline, and sacrifice. All of which are traits lacking in general American population. Gorging on BBQ and beer after Sunday mass doesn’t quite fit the bill. If a society draws a figurative line in the sand signifying what they will accept, and your creativity crosses that line, then you must be prepared to face consequences. But once again, that is the same in most societies regardless of political system.

 

Fascism remains a misnomer to most people. The fear of the thought of a unified people living for something other then capital will ensure that it remains a negative stigma used as a slanderous term, inciting argument, name-calling, and dis-unity. No need to fear being associated with such a great and positive ideal even if many dysfunctional hypocrites are attracted to the negative stigmatized caricature of Fascism that exists today. So the next time someone calls you a fucking Fascist, smile real wide, offer your hand to them and say “Yes, I am, now let me explain why you should be  too”.

 

 

The Selected Works of Kim Il Sung

The Selected Works of Kim Il Sung is a collection of speeches, essays, and interviews by the first leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea  (North Korea).

Kim Il Sung  is often referred to as the “Great Leader“, among North Koreans. After Stalin, with reportedly little resistance, took control of Pyongyang from the Japanese Kim Il Sung was placed in control;  the birth of Juche ideology N. Korea was the result of Kim Il Sung’s reign.

The selected works starts with an essay from 1946, on the establishment of the party.

Some excepts from Sung’s 1946 essay entitled: On the establishment of the Workers’ Party of North Korea and the question of founding the Workers’ Party of South Korea

With his opening sentence Kim IL Sung makes it clear, what is being formulated in North Korea is not simply Communism, but rather a fusion ; essentially a Korean flavored Communism.

” The foundation of the Workers Party representing and defending the interests of the labouring masses of Korea through the merger of the Communist Party and the New Democratic Party is the greatest event in the political life of our people at the present time.”

He goes on to reinforce the claim of the Party being truly a people’s party by pointing out the fact that the majority of the people who made up the People’s committee membership were in fact of the peasant class.

“The composition of the people’s committee membership now active in north Korea is as follows: 

Workers- 5.7%

Peasants- 71.8%

Office employees(intellectuals)- 15.8%

Handicraftsmen- 3.1%

Tradesmen- 4.6%”.

Immediately after gaining control of the helm, Kim IL Sung went directly to work on reclaiming Korea from the hands of foreign imperialists and homegrown traitors:

“Last August the provisional PPCNK (People’s Committee of North Korea) proclaimed the law on the nationalization of industrial, transport and communications facilities and banks which had been owned by the Japanese imperialists, pro-Japanese elements and traitors to the nation”.

With the imperialists, individualists, and profiteers removed from the business, economics and media sectors of North korea the foucs could once again be placed on the person rather then the pursuit of capital:

“In June this year, The PPCNK promulgated the Labour Law freeing factory and office workers from harsh, colonial exploitation and introducing the 8 hour working day and a social insurance system. And a law was passed to guarantee the women social rights equal to those of the men for the first time in the history of our country.”

Sung also addresses the struggles, suppression and eventual defeat of their South Korean counter parts:

The People’s committees set up by the south Korean people immediately after liberation were not recognized and, worse still, they were dissolved and their functionaries were arrested and thrown into jail.”

” And how have the U.S. imperialists and their lackeys who are obstructing the democratic independence and sovereignty of Korea dealt and are dealing with the Communist Party of South Korea? Those villains have arrested, imprisoned and murdered large numbers  of the leading cadres and members of the Communist Party and banned its organ Haebang-ilbo.”

” See the massacre in Kwangju of last August 15! With tanks, planes, machine guns and bayonets the Yankees attacked over 1000 workers of the Hwasun Colliery who were marching towards the city of  Kwangju to attend the mass meeting in honour of the anniversary August 15, killing one and wounding 109 seriously or lightly.”

The 2nd installment in the collection is a speech from 1955 entitled: On eliminating dogmatism and formalism and establishing Juche in ideological work.

Sung starts the speech off dealing with matters of propaganda. As the Juche idea was still, at this point, a relatively newly introduced ideal there were many confusions and contradictions within the pro Juche propaganda  production.  Sung addresses the misinformed and/or flat out bad propaganda being put out by his propagandist. Some of the propagandist, according to Sung, either were misinformed about Juche, were not effective enough of hi-lighting important aspects, or were simply not using enough of the Juche philosophy in their works. One of the main focuses of Sung’s complaints was the particularly bad or non-existent pro-Nationalist propaganda. 

“Only when our people are educated in the history of their own struggle and its traditions, can their national pride be stimulated and the broad masses be aroused to the revolutionary struggle.”

“The Kwangju Student Incident, for example, was a mass struggle in which tens of thousands of Korean youths and students rose against Japanese imperialism; it played a big part in inspiring the anti-Japanese spirit in broad sections of the Korean youth. As a matter of course, we should publicize this movement widely and educate youth and students in the brave fighting spirit displayed by their forerunners. Our propaganda workers have failed to do so. Instead, Syngman Rhee has been making propaganda of this movement in his favour. This has created a false impression that the Communists disregard national traditions. What a dangerous thing! It will be impossible for us to win over the south Korean youth if we go on working in this way.”

“I noticed in a primary school that all the portraits hanging on the walls were of foreigners such as Mayakovsky, Pushkin, etc., and there were none of Koreans. If children are educated in this way, how can they be expected to have national pride?”

In compelling schoolbooks, too, materials are not taken from our literary works but from foreign ones. All this is due to the lack of Juche.

The lack of Juche in propaganda work has done much harm to Party work.”

Sung had to remind his audience that Korean Communism was just that, and not that of Russia, or anyone else for that matter.

“Comrade Pak Yong Bin, on returning from the Soviet Union, said that since the Soviet Union was following the line of easing international tension, we should also drop our slogan against U.S. imperialism. Such an assertion has nothing to do with revolutionary vigilance. The U.S. imperialists scorched our land, slaughtered our innocent people en masse, and are still occupying the southern half of our country. They are our sworn enemy, aren’t they?”

” Many comrades swallow Marxism-Leninism whole, instead of digesting and assimilating it. It is therefore self-evident that they are unable to display revolutionary initiative.”

” Every effort should be made to unearth our national legacies and carry them forward. True, we should be active in learning from what is progressive internationally. But we should develop fine things of our own while introducing advanced culture. Otherwise, our people will lose faith in their own ability and become a spineless people who only try to copy from others.”

Next in the collection of Sung are transcripts from a press conference with Iraqi media in 1971. Many of the questions dealing with their relationship with Iraq, Socialism and the state of imperialism.

Speaking about the need for cooperation not globalism:

“By establishing Juche and relying on our own efforts we do not mean on any account building .’Socialism in isolation. We fully recognize that it is necessary for states to supply each other’s needs and cooperate with each other, and are striving to expand and develop it. Our position is that mutual cooperation between states should be conducted on the basis of the building of an independent national economy in each country. This alone makes it possible to expand and develop economic cooperation between states on the principles of complete equality and mutual benefit.”

“QUESTION : The relations between the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Republic of Iraq were established already long ago. However, it was only after the July 17, 1968 Revolution that the relations took a decisive turn.

What is your appraisal of the successes attained by the Iraqi people in two years after the Revolution and, particularly, the solution of the Kurd national problem on a peaceful and democratic basis and of its influence upon the strengthening of the anti-imperialist people’s front?

ANSWER : 

The Iraqi people attained national independence through their protracted arduous struggle against the domination of foreign imperialism and took the road of new development particularly after the July 17, 1968 Revolution. This was not only a great victory of the Iraqi people but a common victory of the peoples who have risen in the anti-imperialist, national-liberation struggle and a heavy blow to the imperialists and colonialists.

Since the Revolution the Iraqi people, holding aloft the banner of anti-imperialism and independence, have unfolded a devoted struggle to consolidate national independence and build a new, prosperous Iraq and have achieved great successes in a short span of time.

Many difficulties confronted the Iraqi people who set out on the road of struggle for building a new life. The imperialists headed by U.S. imperialism and the Israeli aggressors and their accomplices, the reactionary forces at home, resorted to every underhand scheme to wrest the Iraqi people from the anti-imperialist front.”

On the relationship between the 2 countries:

” The Korean people value the experience accumulated by the Iraqi people in the struggle against imperialism and the Israeli aggressors and for unity, freedom and socialism under the leadership of the Arab Baath Socialist Party.”

On the question of Palestine:

“Our people’s solidarity with and support and encouragement to the Arab people’s revolutionary struggle are constant. The Korean people will continue to resolutely support the valiant struggle of the Palestinian people for liberating their fatherland and the struggle of the entire Arab people against Zionism and imperialist aggression and will always remain a close comrade-in-arms of the Arab people in the struggle against the common enemy. Our people will render active support and encouragement to the righteous struggle of the Arab people at all times.”

Following the transcript from the Iraqi Journalist question answer session is the speech from 1986 entitled :For the Development of the Non-Aligned Movement

In the speech Sung focuses on what the non-aligned movement is about, and what they should be striving to achieve. The speech is separated into 6 major subjects:

 THE PRESENT INTERNATIONAL SITUATION AND INDEPENDENCE IN THE FACE OF IMPERIALISM

“Imperialism is the product of aggression and plunder, and it has grown fat on ceaseless aggression and plunder. Since the emergence of imperialism mankind has suffered disasters of recurrent aggression and war, and has been deprived of immeasurable amounts of property, wealth and the fruit of labour.”

“As monopoly capital grows, so its tentacles of aggression and plunder are extended overseas. This is an inevitable outcome and a law of the development of capitalism”

“The method of its aggression and plunder has changed with the progress of time. Today the imperialists are employing mainly neocolonialism to invade, dominate and plunder other countries.”

“By entangling many developing countries in the neocolonialist web of so-called “aid” and “cooperation”, the imperialists now have seized the economic lifelines of these countries, made them nothing more than their sources of raw materials and their markets and grown rich by squeezing tremendous amounts of profit out of them.”

“The imperialists are working towards invading and dominating other countries in every possible way and in different fields. They are trying to invade other countries and establish political domination over them by resorting to military force and underhanded methods.They are also scheming to subordinate them economically and infiltrate them ideologically and culturally by means of surplus goods, unfair economic relations, decadent Western culture and bourgeois way of life.”

THE PREVENTION OF A NUCLEAR WAR AND THE ABOLITION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS

“To dominate the world by force, wielding nuclear weapons, is the world strategy which the imperialists have persisted in since the Second World War. The danger from this strategy is growing as the days go by.”

“In order to abolish nuclear weapons and prevent a nuclear war, we must create nuclear-free, peace zones in many regions of the world and extend them all the time.”

“The Government of our Republic and the Korean people will struggle energetically to make the Korean peninsula and the rest of Northeast Asia a nuclear-free, peace zone and, in unity with the peace-loving people of the world, make every effort to create and expand these zones in other parts of the world.”

“we must fight against the imperialist policy of military blocs and of increasing military bases.”

THE ELIMINATION OF COLONIALISM AND RACISM AND THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE CAUSE OF NATIONAL LIBERATION

“Under the active aegis of the imperialists, the South African racists and Israeli Zionists overtly pursue the racist and expansionist policy of aggression in all-out opposition to the cause of national liberation.”

“In order to realize their ambition to establish a “Great Zionist Empire” in the Middle East, the Israeli Zionists have occupied Arab lands and are pursuing the policy of establishing colonies. Under the active patronage of the imperialists they are flagrantly violating the national rights of the Palestinian and other Arab people, growing more blatantly ferocious and arrogant as each day passes.”

“First, we must intensify together the struggle to put an end to the racist system of South Africa.South Africa is a major stronghold of colonialism. South African racism is the cruellest form of colonialism. It is the major obstacle to the complete liberation and decolonialization of Africa. It is clear that without putting an end to the policy of apartheid in South Africa it would be impossible to accomplish the cause of national liberation, stabilize the situation in this area and defend world peace and security.”

“Second, we must foil the expansionist, aggressive schemes of the Israeli Zionists.Zionism is a form of racism and colonialism. The aggressive, expansionist policy of the Israeli Zionists is the main factor obstructing the triumphant advance of the cause of national liberation in the Middle East. Without thwarting Israel’s aggressive schemes it would be impossible for the Middle-East countries to achieve their independence, territorial integrity and progress nor would it be possible to guarantee lasting world peace and security.”

“The non-aligned countries must strongly denounce the criminal acts perpetrated by the Israeli Zionists in their opposition to the Arab people and in their efforts to destroy the liberation cause of the Palestinian people. They must continue to extend active support and solidarity to the Palestinian and Arab peoples in their just cause. They should regard the struggle of the Palestinian and other Arab people as their common cause and take strong joint action to reject Israel in the fields of diplomacy, economy, military affairs, culture and marine and air transport in accordance with the decision of the 7th Summit Conference of Non-aligned Nations.”

“The United States must stop giving the Israeli Zionists political and diplomatic support and military and economic aid, take their hands off the Middle East and discard their ambition for dominating this region.”

“Third, we must strengthen solidarity with those people who are fighting for independence, sovereignty and to build a new society.”

SOUTH-SOUTH COOPERATION AND ECONOMIC INDEPENDENCE                        

“South-South cooperation is a noble way for the developing countries to strengthen their economic independence and achieve complete economic freedom through close economic and technical cooperation.”

The non-aligned and developing countries must also cooperate closely with each other in their efforts to improve the farming method.The most important way to increase grain production in the developing countries is to improve the farming method and grow crops scientifically and technologically. Improving the farming method alone will mean a great increase in agricultural production even though a large investment is not required.The developing countries must create a new farming method that suits the topographical and climatic conditions of every zone and country and must make the good experience gained in this improvement widely known.The non-aligned and developing countries must establish wide cooperation and exchange with each other in the field of seed selection and production.Those countries whose technology and experience are good in this field must supply the technology on seed selection and production to other developing countries and provide progenitors where needed.In order to increase grain production, it is necessary to intensify joint study and mutual cooperation in the field of agricultural science.The non-aligned and developing countries must start a joint venture in agriculture.”

“A joint venture in agriculture is one reasonable way for the developing countries, including the African countries, to solve the food problem. If they undertake an extensive agricultural joint venture the developing countries will not only be able to save the people from starvation by a rapid increase in agricultural production but also strengthen the foundations of agricultural production.”

“Establishing a Global System of Trade Preferences between developing countries is of great importance in the improvement of trade among these countries. The non-aligned and developing countries must make joint efforts to introduce this system as early as possible.”

THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A NEW INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC ORDER

“Relying as ever on the old international economic order, the imperialists are plundering the developing countries of their natural resources and paying only a pittance for the results of the peoples’ labour and obstructing the economic development of these countries. Protective trade and the high-interest policy pursued by the developed countries along with the continually worsening terms of trade and the massive increase in foreign debts of the developing countries are having a serious effect on the social and economic development of the non-aligned and developing countries. Because of the unfair international economic order, the economies of the developing countries are growing weaker and becoming stagnant. The economic situation in the African countries in particular is worsening.”

“In reality, without abolishing the old economic order, the product of the colonial system and the lever of imperialist exploitation and plunder, it will be impossible for the non-aligned and developing countries to free themselves from international exploitation and plunder and then develop.”

“At present a non-equivalent exchange is being made as ever in trade between the developing countries and the developed countries. The developing countries sell raw materials at low prices and buy manufactured goods at exorbitant prices, and the share that manufactured goods make up in the exports of these countries is decreasing continually. The result is that the trade deficit of the developing countries is increasing all the time and their economic difficulties are becoming more serious.”

THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE NON-ALIGNED MOVEMENT

“The non-aligned movement is a powerful independent force of our times which is opposed to imperialism. Only when this movement is strengthened will it be possible to succeed in repelling all forms of imperialist domination and subjugation, aggression and intervention, defend the sovereignty of the non-aligned countries and settle not only the problem of establishing a new international economic order but also all other issues in the international arena in accordance with the aspirations and desire of the peoples of the newly-emergent countries for independence. And it also makes it possible to prevent a nuclear war, defend universal peace and security and give a strong impetus to the cause of national liberation.”

The Selected Works of Kim IL Sung comes to a close with a speech from 1991 entitled: For a Free and Peaceful New World.

In this speech, Sung pontificates on his “new world” vision, a reunification of Korea, nuclear disarmament among other things.

“In order to build the new world aspired to by mankind, it is necessary to abolish the unequal old international order in all fields of politics, the economy and culture and establish an equitable new international order. There are large and small countries in the world, but there cannot be major and minor countries; there are developed nations and less developed nations, but there cannot be nations destined to dominate other nations or those destined to be dominated. All countries and nations are qual members of the international community and as such have the right to independence and equality. No privilege and no arbitrariness should be tolerated in international relations; friendship and cooperation among countries must be fully developed on the principles of mutual resect, non-interference in the affairs of other countries, equality and mutual benefit.”

“Disarmament and the abolition of nuclear weapons and other types of weapons of mass destruction is the most pressing task in ensuring peace. The large stockpile of nuclear weapons now on Earth is a menace to the survival of mankind itself. It is intolerable that the valuable results of science and technology created by mankind and social wealth be used for the production of the means of aggression and war that threaten man’s survival, and not for the well-being and development of humanity. The testing and production of nuclear weapons must be banned, the number of existing nuclear weapons must be reduced and, then, nuclear weapons must be completely abolished.”

“The political philosophy of our state is the Juche idea which requires that all consideration should be centred on man and that everything should be made to serve him. By fighting in single-hearted unity under the banner of the Juche idea our people have been able to build, even under the most difficult conditions and circumstances, man-centred socialism in which the people are the genuine masters of the society and everything in society serves them. the democratic character of our society finds clear expression in the fact that all the people, as the masters of the state, equally enjoy a sound and stable life in its material and cultural aspects, exercising completely equal political rights and that, on the basis of comradely love and obligation, they work together for a common goal and develop together, helping one another and leading one another forward.”

Reunifying Korea is the vital requirement of our nation; it is an important question in international politics.The Korean people are a homogenous nation that has lived on the same territory generation after generation, a nation celebrated for its long history and fine cultural traditions. There is no internal cause for our nation to live divided. Ours was not a defeated country in the Second World War; our people contributed to destroying fascism through their long-drawn-out national-liberation struggle. In spite of this, after the war our country was divided into north and south, contrary to the will of the Korean nation, and the nation is still divided. This is not only a source of untold misfortune and sufferingfor our nation bt also a cause of the unstable and dangerous situation in the Asian region. Both from the point of view of national independence and of the cause of peace in Asia and the rest of the world, the question of Korea’s reunification requires an immediate settlement.”

“we consistently maintain the three principles of independence, peaceful reunification and great national unity which the north and the south agreed upon and jointly declared; we hold that on these principles the country should be reunified by founding a confederacy based on one nation, one state, two systems and two governments.”

 

Unfortunately, Selected works of Kim IL Sung is not a  great source for understanding Juche ideology philosophy, but does give insight to the beliefs of Kim IL Sung and thus a broader understanding of Juche, and the goals of the North Korean government.

 

With on the topic of North Korea, enjoy a North Korean propaganda flick about American and internationalist propaganda.

 

Panzram: A Journal of Murder

The first time I saw the name “Carl Panzram“, was when it was attached to the quote : “I wish you all(humanity) had one neck and that I had my hands on it.”  After reading that dandy of a line I knew I had to learn more about Panzram. Who was he? What made him hate life, humanity and himself?

Having  heard the names and stories of most of the (in)famous “serial killers” before, I figured there couldn’t be much about Panzram that could top a Ted Bundy, Richard Ramirez, or any other known mass killer… Boy, was I wrong… Carl Panzram’s story goes much deeper then simple brutality, or mental deviance; Panzram was in fact a living lesson to be taught to all who had the misfortune of being stuck in a dark alley alone with him. His life was the purest example of: cause and effect. The hypocrisies of  modern civilization and dogmatic religions all came to a head in the life of Panzram. Through an education in life’s harsh realities from a very young age Panzram quickly came to grips with the starkness of his existence; “This lesson I was taught by others: Might makes Right” 

“In my lifetime I have murdered 21 human beings, I have committed thousands of burglaries, robberies, larcenies, arsons and, last but not least, I have committed sodomy on more than 1,000 male human beings. For all these things I am not in the least bit sorry. I have no conscience so that does not worry me. I don’t believe in man, God nor Devil. I hate the  whole damned human race including myself.”

A bit  nihilistic to say the least, but, to be fair, when Panzram was not raping, robbing or killing, he was sleeping.🙂

But really he did make one friend in life(who he also threatened to kill if he had ever made the mistake of turning his back to Panzram again), and that is how we know the story of Carl Panzram. 

Carl was befriended by a young prison guard, by the name of  Henry Lesser. Lesser convinced Panzram to write an autobiography of his life. And thus we have: Panzram: A Journal of Murder. A book containing narration from the books authors and first hand accounts of Carl’s life through his writings in prison while awaiting the noose.

Cause

Panzram was born into a large family (typical of the time) on a small farm in Minnesota on June 28, 1891 to parents of German decent; he describes them as: hardworking, ignorant and poor. By the time Panzram was 8 his parents had split up, leaving his mother to raise 6 kids on an small worked out farm. Already a liar and thief, from the start Panzram showed a natural difference from the rest of his family who were honest and hardworking according to him.

Despite his juvenile antics Panzram still found himself put to work in the fields, after school, helping out with the family, till the late hours of the evening, it was around this time that he started to question his life, and the people that surrounded him:

“My portion of pay consisted of plenty of work and a sound beating every time I looked cock-eyed or done anything that displeased anyone who was older and stronger and able to catch me and kick me around whenever they felt like it, and it seemed to me and still does now that everything was always right for the one who was the strongest and every single thing I done was wrong…Everybody thought it was all right to deceive me, lie to me and kick me whenever they felt like it, and they felt like it pretty regular, That was the way my life was lived untill I was about 11 years old.”

It was around that time that Panzram decided leave town and create his own destiny. So a 11 year old Panzram hit the road, but not before he broke into his neighbors house and stole some food and a pistol for his journey. unfortunately for a young Panzram(and over 1000 other people), his journey was cut short:

“I was caught brought back home and beaten half to death, then sent to jail and from there to the Minnesota State Training School at Red Wing Minnesota. Right there and then I began to learn about man’s inhumanity to man”

The Christian methods used at Minnesota Training School were  nothing new to a 12 year old Carl:

“There during my 2 years I was trained by 2 different sets of people to have 2 different set of morals. The good people tried to train me to be good and the bad people did train me to be bad. The method that the good people used in training me was to beat goodness into me and all the badness out of me…The more they beat me and whipped me the more I hated them and their damn religion.”

And when the usual ass beating was not sufficient enough, the training school clergy men had more creative ways of getting their point across:

“They had various methods of punishing us for doing wrong and teaching us to do right,The most popular with them was to take us to the ‘paint shop’, so called because there they used to paint our bodies black and blue…The paint shop was a very ingenious contrivance for inflicting the worst punishment where it would do the least harm and the most good. They used to have a large wooden block which we were bent over and tied face downward after first being striped naked. Then a large towel was soaked in salt water and spread on our backs from the shoulders to the knees. Then the man who was to do the whipping took a large strap about 1/4 of an inch thick by 4 inches wide and about 2 feet long. This strap had a lot of little round holes punched through it. Every time the whip came down on the body the skin would come up through these little holes in the strap and after 25 or 30 times of this, little blisters would form and then burst, and right there and then hell began. The salt water would do the rest. About a week or two later a boy might be able to sit down. I used to get this racket regularly, and when I was too ill for that sort of medicine, they used to make a smaller strap and beat me on my open palms and hands.”

To be fair, not everything was beatings and blisters for young Carl, there was also room for good Christian love… You know that kind of special love, that they proclaim to hate but obsess about it constantly and are always willing to give the most detailed descriptions of said reputed acts:

“This Mr. Moore was a christian, very much so. I was taught to pray when I got out of bed every morning, to say grace at each meal and give thanks to the lord after it…He examined my penis and rectum, asking me if I had ever committed fornication or sodomy or had ever had sodomy committed on me… He explained in detail and very thoroughly just what he meant by these things. That began my education. I have learned little more since.”

“I had learned that a boy’s penis could be used for something besides to urinate with and that a rectum could be used for other purposes than crepitating. Oh yes, I had learned a hell of a lot from my expert instructors…”

Even at his very young age Panzram displayed the testicular fortitude to not simply become a victim, but rather a reaper of vengeance; as he burned down the “paint shop” where he was so often beaten, and tried to poison (with rat poison placed in food) Mr. Moore who had continually beaten the pre-adolescent Carl. 

After serving 2 years there, upon his release Carl Panzram had found his way in life:

“When I got out of there I knew all about Jesus and the Bible- so much so that I knew it was all a lot of hot air. But that wasn’t all I knew. I had been taught by Christians how to be a hypocrite and had learned more about stealing, lying, hating, burning and killing”

“From the treatment I received while there and the lessons I learned from it, I had fully decided when I left there just how to live my life. I made up my mind that I would rob, burn, destroy, and kill everywhere I went and everybody I could as long as I lived. That’s the way i was reformed in the Minnesota State Training School.” 

After leaving the training school and getting into turmoil with a local preacher/teacher who had a touch of the beatyourassites as well, Carl decided to do what was a common act for many people looking for a new beginning; find an open door on a passing train and hitch a ride. As if a young Panzram did not already have his fill of bad experiences… He ends up in a box car with “4 burly bums”, after he (Carl) invited them on… The bums repaid the young teenage Panzram for his good deed by taking their turns sodomizing him:

” I left that box car a sadder, sicker but wiser boy than I was when I entered it.”

Effect

Needless to say, his dirty box car lovin was the final straw… Carl Panzram would become a teacher of all the lessons he had so brutality had to learn in his life; a human mirror reflecting back all the torture, misery, rape, hypocrisy, and hate on to who ever was unlucky enough to be standing in front of him.

Carl ended up doing another 2 years in  Montana institution for petty-larceny. At the age of 16, in order to enlist in the military Panzram lied about his age…He lasted about 2 months before getting 3 years in military prison for a number of offences ranging anywhere from disobeying orders to stealing merchandise:

” I got 3 years in the U.S. Military Prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. My General Court Martial or trial was held at Fort William Henry Harrison, Helena, Montana, and my court proceedings were reviewed by the then Secretary of War, Mr. William Howard Taft. He recommended me for 3 years… 13 years later I had the very good fortune to rob him out of about 40,000 worth of jewelry and Liberty Bonds. This happened at his home in New Haven, Connecticut, in the summer of 1920.”

“I was discharged from that prison in 1910. I was the spirit of meanness personified. I had not at this time got so that I hated myself. I only hated everybody else.”

Carl almost had a non-existence relationship with women, and the few experiences he did have were plagued with trouble. That topped with his upbringing of boys homes, perverted priests, beatings and rape he quickly came to the conclusion that women were too much trouble, as he explains after a night with a women which we woke up to robbed and with a strange burning in his loins…And not burning in a yearning way, but in a bitch gave me gonorrhea way:

“I began to suspect that ladies were a very good thing to leave alone. I have followed that policy pretty closely ever since. Once in awhile since then one would get her claws into me, but not while I was sober or in the daytime where I could see’em first.”

While, women, seemed like bad idea for Panzram, sodomy on the other hand seemed like a great idea, after all he claims over 1000 males had been sodomized by him; he’s like the Wilt Chamberlain of butt rape. The first time he speaks of forcible rape of another man is when he and a Indian (long story) are walking back from the Mexican border and they run into a poor sap, who they rob and tie up:

” I figured that while I had such a good chance as that, I would commit a little sodomy on him. This I proceeded to do. Then I invited the Indian to take a ride but the damn fool was only an Indian. He hadn’t received the full benefits of civilization yet like I had, so he declined the honor.”

A bit of sarcastic humor is shown by Panzram when he states the Indian didn’t have same same benefits of “civilization” as Panzram. 

But as Panzram put it, he was quite the booty bandit, while doing time in Prison,after prison he made sure his supply of sodomy stayed full:

( while in prison in deer lodge Montana) “At that place in time I got to be an experienced wolf. I knew more about sodomy than old boy Oscar Wilde ever thought of knowing. I would start the morning with sodomy…”

Panzram’s rape mania was not limited to solely men, but anyone, be they child or man as he explained during his time in Angola:

“While I was sitting there, a little nigger boy around 11 or 12 years old came bumming around. He was looking for something. He found it too. I took him out to a gravel pit about 1/4 mile from the main camp of the Sinclair oil company at Luanda. I left him there, but first committed sodomy on him and then killed him. His brains were coming out of his ears when I left him.”

 For having raped over 1000 people, his official death toll at 21seems a bit disproportional. But when taken into account his relativity short life was spent mostly inside prison walls it seems to make a little more sense.

“I have no desire whatever to reform myself. My only desire is to reform people who try to reform me. And I believe that the only way to reform people is to kill ’em.” 

Meanwhile speaking of Panzram and murder, back in Angola:

“I hired a canoe and 6 niggers and went out hunting in the bay and backwaters. I was looking for crocodiles. I found them, plenty. They were all hungry. I fed them. I shot all 6 of these niggers and dumped them in. The crocks done the rest.”

Panzram recounts his murders as causally as one would expect him to.

With money he had gotten from robbing Taft’s house he purchased a yacht, which started his travels to Europe, Africa then back to America, on the boy he describes how he used to murder ship-hands that he would pick up:

“There we would go to wine and dine and when they were drunk enough they would go to bed. When they were asleep I would get my .45 Colt Army Automatic, this I stole from Mr. Taft’s home, and blow their brains out. Then I would take a rope and tie a rock on them and put them in my rowboat, row out in the main channel about one mile and drop em over board. They are there yet, ten of em.”                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Panzram was not only concerned with  individual murders, but had plans of mass death:

“My whole mind was bent on figuring out different ways to annoy and punish my enemies, and everybody was my enemy.”

Panzram had a few detailed plans on how to commit mass death, but all his plans hinged on getting enough money to be able to fund these ideas:

(1) he wanted to set off large bombs in a train tunnel that would also explode various gases in glass jars that would have been instant death for any person on the train.

(2) He intended on blowing up and American ship, and making look like it was the British, in order to instigate a war.

(3) he intended on making poison, enough poison to start infecting the water supply.

None of these plans ever came to fruition as he would always end up back in jail before being able to build up the resources to commit such mass acts of violence.

Panzrams life was spent in and out of prison, mainly getting caught for smaller crimes while getting away with the larger crimes. While in prison, his violence would not stop as he got into countless fights, sodomized many fellow inmates, set fires in numerous different prisons, escaped and attempted escape whenever he felt to do so. Surprisingly enough his undoing came by his own mouth. At the age of 37 he was arrested in Washington D.C. for stealing a radio out of a house. When the officer informed Panzram of his charge, Carl brushed it off and told the officer, the charge was a “joke”. When the officer further inquired why, he had thought the charge a Joke, Panzram replied that he had killed too many people to worry about the charge. Panzram, maybe in a short laps of his mission, seemingly sabotaged any chance he would have to continue his life’s quest outside of prison, as he even gave a few specific details.

1000 rapes, 21 murders, 1 friend

It was in the D.C. lock-up where Carl met his unlikely only friend. Lesser’s first encounter with Panzram as explained in the book:

“Lesser was to remember later his first awareness of something unusual in one of his prisoners. On the western side, against the setting sun that burned into a tall, dirty barred outer windows, Lesser saw the silhouette of a large man framed by a second set of bars… The young guard was affected in a way he could not explain, except to state decades later that ‘there was a kind of stillness around him, how he looked’…As lesser turned to walk away, he had a peculiar feeling. He turned to see Panzram watching him from behind the bars… ‘When is your court date’ Lesser asked casually. ‘November elventh’ Panzram said coldly. ‘Whats your racket Lesser asked smiling…’What I do is I reform people’. Lesser responded vaguely and moved away uneasily.”

Panzram, being the trouble maker he was, got himself a lot of ‘special attention’ from other prison guards, as they would beat and torture Panzram when ever they felt the need to. Lesser was horrified by what he saw being done to Panzram, and started to offer help, small talk, providing small wants to Carl. Panzram was suspicious of lesser’s friendliness at first but as time went by they became “friendly” with each other.  Lesser convinced Panzram to write his autobiography while in prison and many times supplied Panzram with the writing material to do so. 

After a trial, during which Panzram acted in his own defense, he was found guilty and sentenced to 25 years in prison to be served at Fort Leavenworth in Leavenworth, Kansas. When he arrived and was read the rules of the facility by the warden in his office, he told him ominously, “I’ll kill the first man that bothers me.” Because he was believed to be too psychotic to be with the general prison population, he was assigned a job in the prison laundry which allowed him to work alone. On June 20, 1929, Panzram took a heavy iron bar and beat his supervisor, Robert Warnke, to death in front of the other inmates and then started attacking them too. Panzram went to trial on April 14, 1930, once again acting in his own defense. After a large group of witnesses gave their testimonies, Panzram was found guilty and sentenced to death by hanging. He was  overjoyed to have received the sentence and  left the courtroom laughing .

Lesser kept in touch with Panzram through letters at that time, sending him books, and money time to time.  On the morning of September 5, 1930, Panram was brought to the prison gallows. When the executioner asked whether he had any last words, Panzram, quite infamously, told him: “Yes, hurry it up, you Hoosier bastard! I could kill 10 men while you’re fooling around!” 

 Henry Lesser, who had kept the manuscript of Panzram’s autobiography, spent the next four decades trying to find a publisher willing to print it. Because the story was thought to be too horrific, it wasn’t until 1970 that it was finally published under the title Killer: A Journal of a Murder.

As stated at the beginning of this article, Panzram’s life was a fine example of cause and effect. While sick and vengeful in his actions, Carl Panzram displayed a will and fortitude that if placed in any direction could have lead him anywhere he so chose, from greatness to infamy. He chose his path,  being a living ,breathing, grim reaper on the Earth to reform the fine people who brought him “civilization”. Every head he mashed in, and every life he ruined was the direct result of a hypocritical, perverted, careless surrounding that a young Carl was brought up in. 

Carl Panzram had the option, to just be a victim, to turn the other cheek, as he was surely taught to do so, but he choose differently. His life and his decisions go beyond simply right or wrong, The monster makers are sometimes bitten back by the monster they create, and this is the case of Carl Panzram. When a man has done such heinous acts as Carl had done, he essentially forces the spotlight on the question of his development. It is easy to make the mistake of simply writing Panzram off as a murderous maniac, and ignore the larger question of: what was the madness that created Panzram, and why is it  still allowed to exist?

The act of a single man being half decent to Panzram was enough to confuse him, and eventually win him over as a friend. It was not like lesser was out of the ordinary with his action, he was simply decent and friendly towards Panzram. Like a abused dog who runs across a nice person trying to actually feed it. First it hesitates, and is unsure, but after the dog eats enough and sees the general authenticity of the compassion, the beast is won over for life. 

Its been said by Carl and others that: Panzram hated the whole world and even hated himself, which in the end may be true. But, to take vengeance on humanity with such potency, shows he really mourned his death as a child, and deeply loved the innocence that was forever taken from him at such a young age. That is to say maybe he didn’t love what he was, but he loved what they had killed in him.

“Do you want to live forever”?

The chick from “Conan” once asked.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hmmmmmm… I don’t know, but I wouldn’t mind a few extra centuries added on.

Seems far fetched, but, people are hard at work, today… This exact moment, as I type this, looking for ways to prolong healthy life. Gains have been made, but as of today the promise of gains outweigh the actual gains in the lab.

Ponce de León is reborn! Well, maybe not, but the magic of the story about his quest for eternal life has been. The Spanish explorer today is played by Aubrey de Grey and Ray Kurzweil. Both, of course are not the only players involved, but both are the leading faces of their respected, similar but different, approaches to strategies in expanding the human life span.

Similar in the sense, that they both seek ways to prolong life; different in the approach. Aubrey de Grey is looking for the fountain of youth inside of our bodies meanwhile Kurzweil wishes to create the fountain of youth through technology in what is called: Transhumanism.

The Aubrey de Grey Biological approach:

Aubrey de Grey is not your stereotypical scientist, which is exactly why he is at the forefront of the battle against aging. Whether it is his uncanny resemblance to Rasputin, his love of beer, or the fact he didn’t even go to school for the field he has caused such a stir in… It is abundantly clear Aubrey de Grey has been a breath of fresh air and fresh ideas to a stagnant field.

So he is a refreshing eccentric character,in the usually dull world of gerontology,  but what about his ideas.

De Grey describes a moment late into the night where the SENS idea came to him, or as he explained: “Grabbing a notepad, I jotted down the molecular and cellular changes that I could confidently list as important targets for the new class of anti-aging therapies that I would soon call SENS, the ‘Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence’.”

After coming to the conclusion, that, the fields of Gerontology and Geriatrics were plagued with issues, that make it extremely difficult to be successful in achieving any kind of worthwhile senescence, de Grey, decided to attack the issue by focusing on the moderate middle ground:

“At root, I was addressing a simple question: if geriatrics fails because prevention is better than a cure, and gerontology fails because our understanding of metabolism is so limited, then might an intermediate target be the best of both worlds? Might it be possible to repair damage after its been laid down (hence avoiding the need to understand the details of how laid down) but before it spirals out of control (hence also avoiding the losing battle that is geriatrics)?”

De Grey describes this as the “Engineering approach”:

By dealing with the middle ground…The damage de Grey proposes the problems left to deal with are only 7, rather then the countless issues involved in the Metabolism and Pathology stages, de Grey suggests we focus on the 7 stages of damge:

(1) damage: Cell loss, cell atrophy-Possible solutions– Cell therapy, mainly.

(2) damage: Junk outside cells-Possible solutions: Phagocytosis by immune stimulation.

(3) damage: Crosslinks outside cells- Possible solutions: AGE-breaking molecules/enzymes.

(4) damage: Death-resistant cells- Possible solutions: Suicide genes, immune stimulation

(5) damage: Mitochondrial mutations- Possible solutions: Allotopic expression of 13 proteins.

(6) damage: Junk inside cells- Possible solutions: Transgenic microbial enzymes.

(7) damage: Nuclear[epi] mutations (only cancer matters)- Possible solutions: Telomerase/ ATL gene deletion plus periodic stem cell reseeding.

Aubrey de Grey goes into details about the science and theories behind his SENS plan, in his book : Ending Aging

A SENS challenge was offered to anyone who could prove de Grey’s theories had no base in reality. 20 thousand dollars were put up and panel of judges, not attributed to either party, have to this day awarded no one the cash.

What de Grey believes is not just simply cracking the human code in our life time and living forever, but rather a prolonging of life, followed by another break through, and more prolonging of life on top of that and so on. This is what de Grey describes as “longevity escape velocity

“longevity escape velocity” is highly dependent on something that Kurzweil also depends on and that is the : “law of accelerating returns” , which basically means:  the rate of change in a wide variety of evolutionary systems (including but not limited to the growth of technologies) tends to increase exponentially. Which is just piggy backed off Moore’s law, which states: in the history of computing hardware whereby the number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years.

For example, after years of research, scientists extended healthy living another 20 years, and within those extra 20 years, with technological advancements and knowledge growth, another breakthrough happens that extends healthy life by 30 years this time, and the process continues on.

De Grey likes to bring up the process of humans learning to fly…  Explaining, that it took thousands of years to figure out how to fly, but once we did figure it out, in a relatively short time, we had fighter jets and spaceships. This is how de Grey and Kurzweil think things will go in their own feilds… After the first major breakthrough, there will be many to follow in a relatively short amount of time.

Aubrey de Grey VS Richard Sprott (1/6) Debate

Kurzweil and Transhumanism

From science to science fiction! Tranhumanism would seem to be science fiction,if it were not for the simple fact the ideas of Tanhumanism are very plausible. Ray Kurzweil is an inventor, author, “futurist” among many other things. His inventions aside, Kurzweil is most know for his belief in the “singularity“, which is when Humans merge with technology, kinda like the Borg from Star Trek.

Like with de Greys beliefs the steps to complete Transhumanism starts with basic steps, first we will have nanobots placed in us, which will help prolong our lives, by attacking diesse, curing inflammation, and whatever else is needed… Or how about Google in your brain? To be able to do a Google search by simply thinking to do so. The law of accelerating returns is also implied here for the continual advancement in technology.

But these amazing possiblies are not even Kurzweil’s endgame; he foresees a day when we can actually download our consciousness on to a hard drive, much like the cylons from the recent Battlestar Galactica series.

Is it even possible to be able to do such a thing? If it was it would shatter allot of peoples view of the “soul”; so we could imagine allot of concern and downright fear from many people (esp religious types) if such a thing were ever close to becoming reality.  But more-so then that, what would become of man;we would essentially stop being human, and become artificial intelligence ourselves.

Kurzweil believes many of these things will take place by 2045.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kurzweil, all his accomplishments aside, is quite the interesting character…The more virtually real cyber life becomes the more he can build his online ego of a famous female pop star singer. What was that Weininger was saying about Jews and femininistic nature? Despite his freakness, many of the things he has predicted has come about, which leads many to believe allot of the things he is saying now will come to fruition.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Personally, call me paranoid, but I am not allowing a freaking Google chip in my head or nanobots in my body. The possibitly for the powers that be to abuse these possible inventions is just too great.

Mankind, must not be short sighted in the hunt for AI and Tranhumainsm, after Pandora’s box has been opened it might be too late. When I read books like “the singularity is near” it makes me think the “terminator scenario” is all too real.

While many questions and hesitations keep me weary of the possible singularity, the exact opposite can be said for my enthusiasm towards de Grey’s work…Call it a more natural path to longevity. The possibly of man, through the mastering of his body,and eugenics, being able to expand life span by 100’s or even 1000’s of years is quite magnificent, and, in my belief, the proper path towards Overman.

Outside of drugs, supplements, HGH, etc, what can you do to prolong your life? EAT LESS! Yes, really it’s that simple… The 20% rule, eat 20% less then you daily suggest calorie intake for your BMI. So far, that is the only clinically proven  natural method of generally prolonging your life…Always good to keep the body, a little hungry, is the rule.
