Globalization as most toxic euphemism allowed us (US) to hire foreign labor at a dollar an hour, but consistent with our innate duality and hypocrisy we attack Nike and other garment manufacturers for their labor practices allowing use of child labor. Don’t kid yourself this is NOT to protect child labor this is to cut into the profit pie of Nike and other companies that outsource their menial labor overseas. Of course this practice has resulted (“did the general coffers fill” – Julius Caesar’s Mark Anthony’s speech, Act 3, scene 2, page 4), from before and during Roman times.
This brief paragraph shows us how profitable it is to usurp your own people. Just like Hitler practiced war on his own people (Austria and Sudetan lands) so are we in today’s US practicing how to rob our own people – give them “panes et circencis” on the left so we can steal them blind on the right.
How do we instrumentalize this act?
Media. – Nothing can be simpler. Aside from up to 20 true honest investigative journalists (Patrick Buchanon, Dr. Srdja Trifkovic (outstanding author – not a journalist per se), Oriana Fallacci, Obrad Kesic (also a commentator, author rather than a journalist), Justin Raimondo, Ljiljana Smajlovic, Miroslav Lazanski (never-mind if I missed another few here and there, can’t name them all right away), all media is just a prelude to other acts of dishonesty often followed by outright war, not that the present war is neither cold nor covert, but there is no word in the English language to describe the atrocities that we as a nation are committing on a daily basis. U.K. commonwealth alone has some 3.5 million children go hungry every night (Huffington Post).
Having selected journalism or authoring, those individuals have made unspoken commitment to the truth and language (i.e. if German – Hochdeutsch, if English – Queen’s English) without foreign words too much of a metaphor and without hyperboles (Hamlet’s mother Gertrude “More matter, with less art.” Act 2 scene 2 page 4). Elizabethan English is pretty clear that by “ART” we mean deception, deviation, departure from the truth, same as the acting (and actors) were considered travelling prostitutes, pick-pockets, thieves and drunks. Today’s word actor has no such derogatory meaning. Journalistic standards must be high in spite of all else – following with Ben Franklin’s remark: “If all printers were determined not to print anything till they were sure it would offend nobody, there would be very little printed.” – How, in the name of Jesus Harold Christ can this be done in today’s world of political correctness and “sensitivity” trainings – it can not be done. “Therewith lies the rub” – from the brilliant and annoyingly correct Shakespeare.
Now let’s take a look at the media:
MEDIA – historiography but in today’s world synthesized only as:
Just like any peace is a temporary break between two wars – and wars are most certainly dominant state of affairs in our time – especially in the 20th Century, which began with Boer wars in South Africa (the first one having started 1880 to 1881) second Boer war being from 1899 to 1902 as a loud entrance into the 20th century, with many more wars to follow – let’s not waste time enumerating the wars, but aside from the two world wars we had Balkan wars in Europe and the expulsion of the Turkish empire from European soil (Macedonia 1912, Greek uprising against Turks 1919 to 1922, and countless lesser wars like those in the Balkans (Serbians exterminated in Croatia, Kosovo and Bosnia while Serbian Generals were sent to the Hague where most died even committed suicide. This kangaroo court in Hague lasted till December of 2017 – so we did round off the entire 20th century with wars. Aside from the “lesser wars” – no war is truly lesser, we have disputed victories of the US in Viet-Nam, Korea, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Syria, etc. But, by far, the most important war (to me) was the Cuban revolution which proved that imperialism remains vulnerable in spite of its most massive armaments, manpower, technology and similar advantages.
So how does media fit into the most recent age?
I don’t intend to present this in reverse chronology but exactly in chronological order – however, since I started with what we all know, let’s employ a few visual aids to see how instrumental media was in the 20th century wars. Here are the images, you decide:
Sir Adrian Carton de Wiart fought in the Boer war and both World Wars, was shot in the face, head, stomach, ankle, leg hip and ear, survived plane crash, tunneled out of a POW camp and bit off his own fingers when a doctor refused to amputate them. He later said “frankly I had enjoyed the war” – would you want him married to your daughter, or would you rather have him as a neighbor on a short leash?
What better image to show a severe mental disorder in the tribes of Anglo-Saxons predominant in Germanic tribe’ s ancestors and majority descendants in today’s USA. People like this (including Adolf) should have been shot in the cradle right after birth. Here is another bit of filth from the British Isles:
Let’s not even get into Nazi: “Gott mit uns” – God is with us. Therefore, it follows that nobody can be against us. All these glorious images and verbiage brought a decisive defeat to the purveyors of this filth, thereby, defeat has been wrestled from the jaws of victory.
Let’s try to uncover how did this all start (hardest part).
Most obvious early beginnings can be seen on the Roman coins where every emperor had his image on one side of the currency, but that is not the first transition into the deadly field of media – there are much earlier examples, such as:
This is Lydian Lion from about 610 BC.
Lions have been considered kings of jungles, and symbols of kingly authority, from time immemorial. One of the most fascinating coins of all time, a coin that I believe is the first true coin, features one the most fascinating lions ever to appear on a coin. Therefore, the Lydian king was advertising his lion-like strength and power to his subjects.
The coin illustrated above is a Lydian third stater, or trite, minted sometime around 600 BC in Lydia, Asia Minor (current-day Turkey), a country in close geographic and cultural proximity to the Greek colonies in Asia Minor.
But what if we go back to 2500BC or earlier yet?
Ancient Egypt and Nubia drawings: Objects could be overlapped within the register, which means that the object partially covered by another is farther away. Items higher up in the register are further away than those lower down. The hierarchical ordering of society was reflected in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional art by scale. Hence, the king’s figure is usually the same size as the gods whom he interacts with, though larger than his queen, children or subjects. figure is usually the same size as the gods whom he interacts with, though larger than his queen, children or subjects. Hence the pharaoh or the ruler conveys his grandeur by imagery – this is on the first few earliest displays of power in an art form crossing the border between art and propaganda straight into media. Other few examples follow:
Disregard that or compare it with the answer in kind from the opposite end:
Media is obviously a wicked ugly sister of the noble and fair art and it is next to impossible to draw the line where art ends and Media begins.
The purpose of works of art may be to communicate ideas, such as in politically, spiritually, or philosophically motivated art; to create a sense of beauty (see aesthetics, nobility); to explore the nature of perception; for pleasure; or to generate strong emotions. The purpose may also be seemingly nonexistent. For the most part to ennoble and elevate a viewer’s sentiment, feelings invoke piety, respect, compassion, empathy, but in our study we are only looking for those rotten apples that have goal to steer us in the direction of their intent for political or financial gain – therefore devoid of the qualities art has inherently. To that end it is good to show what media is NOT, as in the following few images:
The very few examples that where media was amputated or un-necessary:
a) The Birth of Venus (Italian: Nascita di Venere [ˈnaʃʃita di ˈvɛːnere]) is a painting by Sandro Botticelli probably made in the mid 1480s. It depicts the goddess Venus arriving at the shore after her birth, when she had emerged from the sea fully-grown (called Venus Anadyomene and often depicted in art).
b) Aphrodite of Milos better known as the Venus de Milo, is an ancient Greek statue and one of the most famous works of ancient Greek sculpture. Initially it was attributed to the sculptor Praxiteles, however from an inscription that was on its plinth, the statue is thought to be the work of Alexandros of Antioch. (images missing)
In these last few examples we have obvious beauty, form, humanity, aimed at no-one, designed for no gain, nor profit nor to alter our minds. That’s where we have to be careful to separate Art from the evil sister (Media). We can see clearly what media is NOT. One of the key elements of Media is to direct and command our lives and our choices. By all probable views we were all granted FREE WILL by the grace of God – the diabolical Media works in the opposite direction. In a manner of speech we are through the looking-glass – white is black and black is white…
Example: to besmirch a person’s sexual orientation it is enough to conduct a series of interviews confirming that such a person is heterosexual. This practice being repeated numerous times will cause us to think why would anybody who has a family want us to think what is already obvious – this leads to a flawed conclusion – that person is probably homosexual or bisexual – which was a taboo only some 50 years ago and would destroy careers. Even a denial can work against a person in this warped quasi psychological thinking induced by media. I challenge any higher ranking US politician or Senator to give 4 interviews to explain and show why s/he is an anti-communist. Before too long that person will be labeled communist. We have some vague idea of what media is, and how it operates,
Another vitally important element is repetition – as used heavily by Joseph Goebels.
Even in Roman times we had repetition: This saying is really old…old enough to be one of those Latin phrases that’s engraved into stone somewhere in the sprawl of the former empire: Repetitio mater studiorum est. Repetition is the mother of all learning, or “Cartagena delenda est”, before and after every speech by Cato the Elder.
As learning is a product of serious teaching we can use the model of repetition to channel one’s views mind principles, values – views and similar nefarious actions.
Did anybody really believe Walter Cronkite that this week we inflicted casualties of 55,000 deaths among the V.C. and suffered a loss of 26 US infantrymen? – and this sick diatribe against Viet Nam would hold up to the test of time. But the contemporaries don’t give a rat’s ass. Their goal is usually more immediate followed by an instant gratification – in this case glorifying the lost battles in order to enlist more men – so who cares about the truth or art at the time of dire needs and war.
But we are no closer to establishing the original sin – first use of Media in ancient history. Historically, coincided with the displacement of Neanderthal man by anatomically modern man, starting around 40,000 BC. Indeed, it was from about this date that the earliest rock art began to emerge.
I hypothesize that the caves of Altamira (following images):
Obvious phallic shaped horn advertising author’s virility.
Fairly powerful large bison/bull, which in the following pages proves that media has always been a part of art, with a few exceptions where art stood alone – not the other way around. Even the pre-historic cave paintings are a form of media propaganda to be explained in the following pages.
More than one person in a hunt. (lacking image from my books)
We must conclude that this is a hunter-gatherer society. Hunting and gathering was presumably the subsistence strategy employed by human societies beginning some 1.8 million years ago, by Homo erectus, and from its appearance some 0.2 million years ago by Homo sapiens. It remained the only mode of subsistence until the end of the Mesolithic period some 10,000 years ago, and after this was replaced only gradually with the spread of the Neolithic Revolution.
Starting at the transition between the Middle to Upper Paleolithic period, some 80,000 to 70,000 years ago, some hunter-gatherer bands began to specialize, concentrating on hunting a smaller selection of (often larger) game and gathering a smaller selection of food. This specialization of work also involved creating specialized tools such as; fishing nets, hooks, and bone harpoons. The transition into the subsequent Neolithic period is chiefly defined by the unprecedented development of nascent agricultural practices. Agriculture originated and spread in several different areas including the Middle East, Asia, Mesoamerica, and the Andes beginning as early as 12,000 years ago. Therefore, these cave paintings must be anywhere from 20,000 BC, to 45,000 BC period. Human mind of an early homo erectus (and homo sapiens) was not sufficiently developed to ennoble and/or enrich the viewers so we have only one choice left: MEDIA.
Procreation, since most hunters were male these were the proofs of their virility and ability to procreate so that their immediate gain would be to attract the most fertile/endowed females, most likely to produce good strong offspring. I feel with a good amount of certainty that this is the beginning of the evil media as we know it today. Here is another image fostering that direction. Image of large horn rhino (a fairly obvious phallic symbol see a few lines above this section) from the same time period:
What woman would be indifferent to such a capable male, in Paleolithic age (most cave paintings were carbon dated to about 39,000 years ago) – so I feel we are at the birth of media.
Let’s skip the heads of Roman emperors on the coins minted during their rule – that’s pretty self-evident.
Now that we know the beginnings we can look at Media today in a much clearer light. To simplify it all, I consider media as the world’s worst toxin. It would be a shame and irresponsible waster of paper to enumerate all examples of media poison but you can’t go wrong if you include extra pair of eyes and ears and keep asking yourself how does this benefit me. We are all humans and same as it is the case of true art (to ennoble people, views, visitors), so should the purpose of media be clear, but it rarely is – except to entice us to spend our money their way, to vote for their choices – not ours, to buy their car not ours.
Therefore, the most obvious media toxins can be found every day in:
The Internet (by far the most toxic source of unsorted flea market rubbish)
Logos on the clothing we all wear
(we unwilling agents for Nike, or Chicago Bulls or Prince tennis racquets once we wear their garments – and we are doing it for free)
Hollywood boulevard walk of fame pavement
Sides of buildings
Clothing, hats, t-shirts, sneakers convert you into a non-paid agent for the brand you displayed.
Ideal image where to insert a little text. When US President G. W. Bush Jr. started operating the illegal Guantanamo Bay prison camp – the prisoners were named enemy combatants (so to show you how far reaching this all goes that even a White House spoken word could be twisted by media)
Dang, I was sure those were captive prisoners but in that case the Geneva convention rules of war would have to be observed, this way there are no rules protecting enemy combatants on non-US soil.
A few Pro-Viet-Nam War images:
Sex sells, and it always will
Pro war in the Navy image and against was in the image of the hippy age black and white image. Especially a society so prudish and so mind-fucked can’t figure out what is a good response to something like this. There is no greater challenge than getting laid. In one of my prior books I examined and expanded a thesis that most Americans go to war only to get laid. Word War2 resulted in a doubled up number of US soldiers married to European women. The Viet Nam war resulted in some 60% increase of US men marriages to Oriental women. For that reason I called most wars started by the prudish West – vagina wars. Which nimrod would be able to maintain a sexually fulfilling relation with most American (also German and British) women Hence the coinage “vagina wars”.
I can’t imagine how sexually deprived a man has to be to see the sexual value of the following, unless this is some deep Oedipal disturbance: British mother tapping her “lad’s uniformed shoulder”)
In a saddest example even the most deprived incestuous images of sex found their value in media (“take no prisoners” approach). Look at this Puritan (deeply religious, God fearing, commandments obeying mother – sending “her boy” – grown man to kill, since God is on our side (Hitler used the same logic Gott mit uns, originated with heraldry of Prussia in 1701)
The Media is particularly geared in a predatory manner against children and women.
*The worst purveyor of media bullshit is the TV. Any TV program between the commercials is called FODDER, making the commercials the key for the programming schedules. So even if you’re watching the news, keep in mind that the news are tailored to suit the commercials, besides the fact that there is nothing new in the “news” – except the fake news – how do you think we came to use that working “fake news”, or “red flag”?
As in the words of world’s biggest media mogul Rupert Murdock “Just get me advertisers, the text is only fodder (cannon food) between the ads 1974 when he bought the Daily Mirror, and the Sun – following year.
More bullshit from the field of MEDIA:
I lived in NYC when it was announced that we had the coldest Winter on record – in spite of the fact that two prior years were equally miserable.
Early 2000s I lived in Chicago – El Presidente B. Hussein Obama announced SNOWMAGEDDON, on account of a massive snow fall in the Midwest where even railroad tracks froze.
2016 Winter was abnormally cold and snowy due to “Lake effect disturbances” – I swear to God I never even touched any lakes – but….
I promised myself not live through another Winter in Chicago no matter what. I got lucky since in:
2017 we had “a cyclone bomb” of record lows and record snowfalls (yet again).
See that: a handful of cute names for same event. Let’s remember that George H. W. Bush declined to sign the Kyoto protocol but decided to buy the “emission rights” from African under-developed countries in order to continue un-monitored industrial emissions and be held harmless. In short:
The Kyoto Protocol is an international treaty, which extends the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that commits State Parties to reduce greenhouse gases emissions, based on the premise that (a) global warming exists and (b) man-made CO2 emissions have caused it.
Let’s call it a day with the Internet and TV media, the two most toxic:
As in most things else, so with media: “What’s past is prologue” (Shaekspeare: The Tempest)
Coup de grâce – euthanasia – gloves off (Buggs Bunny used to say coup de Gracie)
Media delenda est, und muss sterben. Executioner’s role, I accept just watch this filth coming in the next few chapters:
a) Sociology is by all accounts only the study of the development, structure, and functioning of human society and the study of social problems. Politicians use us (sociologists to further their goals – but not in my case – I selected to be the judge, the jury and the executioner since my findings are irrefutable on the following (in addition to all the above):
All of this must be done for the greater good (which is the one true goal of sociology).
b) we are all chained by the Media, and therefore deprived of liberty (as evidenced by Benjamin Franklin – no less a publisher himself: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
c) fast forward two centuries: Does any American realize (except Oliver Stone, Zachary Sklar, Col. L. Fletcher Prouty) that there were some 18 mechanics (assassins) in Dallas November 22, 1963. Nobody of course. Did Lee Harvey Oswald play any role – yes he was a fall guy – the rest is all a charade “who killed Kennedy? the Cubans, the Russians, the Mafia, the Communists everybody except my dead grandmother. If this were to be considered even half true – the documents would have been released – but no. Keep in mind that “half truth is ever the blackest lie – Alfred Lord Tennyson. How many Americans today in 2018 can accept presence of the following at, or near the Dealey Plaza (partial list): Lyndon B. Johnson, George Herbert Bush, George W. Bush, Richard Nixon. The above few met with a wealthy Texas oilman H. L. Hunt and some 15 more likeminded individuals, (not excluding military industrial complexes – of which Eisenhower warned us in his departure speech January 17, 1961) at the posh Houstonian hotel the night before – why and what do they all have in common? Who stands to gain from the death of JFK? Not much later we had some unknown “mental case Sirhan-Sirhan kill Robert Kennedy – really? Martin Luther King – really? Even the lowly Jack Ruby was killed (probably by the ghost from Hamlet – in his prison cell – really?
For the media to go silent on such key events and try to brain-wash us with these improbable findings is outright criminal – it really and truly is.
It is only with the support of the Media that such an event (assassination of the President can be kept out of public’s eye for so long – therefore supporting my prior wording under:
d: we are all chained by the Media.
e) The Gulf of Tonkin fairy tale incident never happened the way it was crafted by the Media – to which a taped conversation of LBJ and Robert McNamara serves as a good starting point under the title: LBJ Tapes on the Gulf of Tonkin Incident

(New York: The New Press, 2003) – internet hyperlink: https://nsarchive2.gwu.edu//NSAEBB/NSAEBB132/tapes.htm – from the National Security Archive
Christiane Amanpour title from November 23, 2016 published in Adweek: “Christiane Amanpour: ‘I Believe in Being Truthful, Not Neutral’ – who gave her the deed to the ranch of truth? God? For thousands of years Persia, Assyria, Egypt, Hellenic city States, Roman rulers, thinkers, Cicero, Marcus Aurelius, Machiavelli, Bruno, Thomas Moore, Milton, Kant, Hegel, John Locke, Thomas Hobbes, Martin Luther, all popes of Rome, all failed to find define and determine TRUTH – but Christiane has the only key given to her only, and by God Almighty (presumably – since there is nobody else left).
Don’t let me finish yet – the above was a statement made at The ceremony was last night’s July 18th, 2016 Committee to Protect Journalism’s 2016 International Press Freedom Awards, and the speaker was CNN chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour, accepting the Burton Benjamin Memorial Award, which, as the CPJ describes it, honors “extraordinary and sustained achievement in the cause of press freedom.” Just try to remember F. Nietzsche’s thoughts on herd mentality and how the entire world is hereby bamboozled to think that Christiane has anything to do with journalism – let alone objectivity. Above all things else a journalist must be objective or impartial and report news rather than create news. Similar logic supports all other professionals: do we not have the Hypocrytes’ oath by all graduating medical professionals – “cause no harm” – employ all means to attain health, well-being, cure, remedy?
Ever heard of a wolf guarding a herd of lambs? How about a fox guarding a chicken coup?

You thought I was done?
So did I.
However turns out there are a few more lines of utmost cruelty but indispensable for our existence – since I failed to convey how Media is detrimental to all of us and (Lincoln, Ella Wheezer: “to sin by silence – makes cowards out of men”) but also worse yet the ongoing media pressure leads to self-censorship – those poor 20 honest journalists are being fired, kicked around, switching publishers etc. only because they don’t comply. I know a few first hand, and that much, those who Churchill has described with words: “Never have so few done so much for so many” – looks like he did get more out of Whiskey than whiskey got out of him (when criticized for drinking his reply was: “I got more out of whiskey than whiskey got out of me”) – so due to his advanced look on media he praised the British spitfire pilots and the 20 honest authors/journalists on Earth today.
Self-censorship is a most un-natural act that the whole system must be taken down. Would we have Edward Snowden- whistleblower Chelsea Manning if our general affairs were half straight – NO we would not. These last few paragraphs are in praise to those few with their integrity intact. This is how King Duncan has greeted Macbeth: “O worthiest cousin!
The sin of my ingratitude even now
Was heavy on me: thou art so far before
That swiftest wing of recompense is slow
To overtake thee. Would thou hadst less deserved,
That the proportion both of thanks and payment
Might have been mine! only I have left to say,
More is thy due than more than all can pay. – (hint, hint – last line is the key)
No wonder Shakespeare was (and is) such an incomparable genius, in Hamlet, I quote, the Ghost (Hamlet’s father): “Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder.” only to stress that anybody with vocation of being a reporter/author and a journalist must have painfully sprouted the truth from seed – and therefore it stands that all acts others are most un-natural, vile, corrupt foul, nasty, unpleasant, bad, disagreeable, horrid, horrible, dreadful, abominable, atrocious, offensive, obnoxious, odious, unsavory, repulsive, off-putting, repellent, revolting, repugnant, disgusting, distasteful, loathsome, hateful, nauseating, sickening; base, low, mean, wretched, disgraceful, appalling, shocking, ugly, vulgar, sorry, shabby, shameful, dis-honorable, execrable, heinous, abhorrent, deplorable, monstrous, wicked, evil, dark, dirty, vicious, iniquitous, sinful, corrupt, sordid, depraved, perverted, debased, reprobate, degenerate, debauched, dissolute, contemptible, despicable, reprehensible, diabolical, diabolic, devilish, fiendish, hellish, damnable;, sick-making, gut-churning, icky, gross, Satanic.
From all the above, methinks diabolical will suffice.
We may all agree it’s fairly easy to find faults and to criticize – but it’s not. How do you think we got the new word “fake news” – only after the election of Donald Trump. It’s from the media trying to devour other opposing media both untrue and both politically motivated.
Back to the issue of “easy to find faults” – requires a solution: REVOLUTION, even a peaceful one if need be. For most of us Americans “revolution” is a dirty word, but let’s remember that the Fall of Bastille brought a more just system in France – not right away but after Napoleon. Nothing can be solved overnight. Even here at home, if we didn’t have our own revolution we would still be paying Stamp Act tax and have the smiling queen on our currency – thank God we don’t. Even if you are a wealthy Cuban living in Miami who hates Castro you must confess that the cases of cancer per capita are lowest on Earth, exactly in Cuba. People in Cuba are very happy (for the most part) look at the success of the music group Buena Vista Social club (means good view/life) glorifying their love for Cuba, and that success was worldwide. Closing quote from Tomas Jefferson: “No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press.”
Even in 1651 Thomas Hobbes gave us his Levithan, which by all accounts had to be slayed, 1555 we have an image of Leviathan in a fresco by Giacomo Rossignolo
