don’t care what you call yourselves, communists or fascists, Democrats
or Republicans, Congressmen or Presidents, judges or lawyers, feudal
Lords or Monarchs, Multinational Corporations, Friends of the Great
Spotted Suck Toad, Gas and Electric Utilities, the Sierra Club,
the United Nations or the World Bank. You all have a totalitarian
bent and aim for the State to own and control everything and everyone.
are, in the words of one of the philosophers writing today, moral
squeeze and squeeze and squeeze and the more the people of any nation
yelp and protest, the more brutal you become.
The more brutal you become, the more the people become aware of
will stand for quite a bit of your nonsense—but you know that. It
also helps when you brainwash them silly and stupid with that scourge
of modern times, the television. It is by means of television that
you enure them to your violence, and your generic nazi tactics;
as long as it isn’t happening to them, they can bear watching it
happen to their neighbors. Go right ahead and roast some more Somali
kids. We’ll watch.
slowly, under all the layers of your televised sexuality and your
televised violence, and the stupidity of your "news,"
the idea grows in millions of minds that they are watching the creation
of the ugliest totalitarian/fascist beast yet.
Please squeeze harder. Send out more of your goons masquerading
as gang members in their cool black suits. Terrorize and kill even
more citizens in "the drug-glazed informant told us the wrong
house" drug raids. Jack more young pregnant wives up against
the wall so they miscarry, and shoot more kids in the back. Use
even more tanks.
continue, most of all, your policy of stealing property rights through
land-grab environmentalism. This is the most important of all. After
all, the great mass of humans can live without a free press—we’ve
seen that in America for this entire century. By the insidious work
of your televised sex and violence, you’ve made sure that people
have lost their moral compass, so freedom of religion doesn’t much
matter to them. You’ve doing great with the "guns are evil
monsters" routine as well. Very few care about justice, so
all your illegal searches and seizures have profited you greatly.
it up. Squeeze harder. Some blood needs to leak from our eyeballs.
it. Squeeze, baby, squeeze.
force more of our young daughters to spread their legs for your
unnecessary and invasive government gynecological exams in the schools.
Do not listen to their saying NO. Make them do it anyway. Please
press all of our young men and women into involuntary servitude
via your newest mechanism of "volunteerism." Make them
suffer for it. Your doublethink on this issue alone is wonderful:
involuntary volunteerism. Orwell would be very impressed.
the young men and women of the Armed Forces a bit more. With your
new sex trials, the men will vacate the service, leaving an armed
force of whiny females to defend this country. Good job, that one.
Do keep killing all the officials and journalists who discover your
tricks and disagree with your policies via Apparent Suicide Syndrome.
You’re doing great with this tactic, teaching people who is boss
and what thoughts they are allowed to think and say.
civilians, property rights will be the crux of the issue, which
is why the people have had "Save the Earth From Humans"
shoved quite prettily down their throats for the past 30 years.
Please keep taking away our right—bought and paid for—to do what
we wish with our houses, our property, our land. This is good. In
fact, if you can manage it in the Congress turned Comintern, raise
the taxes on producers, employers, and property owners until they
cannot be borne. Put more people out of business and out of work
with your "endangered species" ploy. They won’t realize
that truly they are the endangered species. Make more species
"endangered," for that matter. Take a risk. You’ve earned
it, and you’ve become quite good at the Big Lie: make cows and pigs
and chickens unavailable for human consumption by putting them on
the "endangered" list. Put all animals currently hunted
or fished for food or sport "endangered" and then you
can outlaw all small arms for civilians.
Squeeze much harder. It is, after all, what totalitarians do best.
doing really well on the death front, with the older ones crying
for Dr. Kevorkian to give them his tender mercies, and an entire
generation of young women willing to kill their own blood and bone
wholesale, aided by the Lords of Medicine. A fine job on this, since
now the people can kill and be killed for the sake of convenience.
coming to the historical point where you really start culling the
herd of humans—but be careful here, since, after all, it’s those
inconvenient humans who provide the money to support your totalitarian
agenda. At least, don’t take too many all at once—a few invented
in laboratories diseases will do to start—AIDS, Ebola, whatever.
Don’t overdo it until the big push, of course.
keep up the squeeze.
your free labor in prisons, where many of you have money invested,
to make clothes and other goods for your consumption. This works
well, too. Privatize prisons and run them on the Chinese model.
If you run into trouble on this, note that most current (and rapidly
becoming so) totalitarian governments can easily intimidate their
herds of humans by using tanks against the people, and, needless
to say, televising it.
using informant lowlives to frame your enemies as well as the innocent
among the people. Give the ones you catch extremely hard sentences
for not knowing, say, that a government snitch had buried "pipe
bomb material" on their property. That’s a nifty tactic, and
one some people learned from mightily.
not prosecute your agents of the government bureaucracy no matter
what laws they break, people they kill, or perjury they commit,
whatever they may have done in the "line of culling the herd"
just let it pass and cover it up. Make it very clear where the lines
are drawn and for whom your laws apply. Among the people, the very
very few are appreciative and aware of the lesson.
lying through your teeth. Various current and former rulers are
quite adept at this and it teaches the people discernment. This
is a fine point, but important. The people learn when they hear
when rulers or their agents say "No wrongdoing was done"
in the face of blatant and obvious wrongdoing.
well your paparazzi pets, the media. They will live as long and
prosper as well as you. They serve you well. Have them oblige you
even more by ignoring lies, deceptions, thefts and coverups by squeezing
them just a touch as well.
us even more, oh "kind-hearted" totalitarians. Until our
that day, we shall see you reap what you have sown.
