The Complexities of Modern Capitalism and Rhetoric

Modern capitalism and it rhetoric doers not begin with a mixed economy of government and the international financial exchanges on which it thrives as yeast in a mixture of flour yeast sugar and water. Capitalism as a set of theories and processes begins as aspects of capitalist economy both legal and illegal and in it most primitive forms without pronouncements of legality and illegality but which exists in philosophical questions of immorality and ethics. Capitalism in this modern as is that hotly debated topic upon which much of society rests and exist for better or worse. As capitalism for which trillion of dollars are spent worldwide annually to advance the agendas of those who own it is not a free and independent entity divorced from all senses of reality except in the minds of the most criminal of  propagandist who present themselves in as varied a diverse manner as the vitriolic Joseph Goebbels, the flippant Andy Warhol, or equally dangerous and threatening Edward Louis Bernays.

Where Edward Louis Bernays laid the foundations for the trillion international United States based propaganda machines of advanced by the US CIA and State Department.

Andy Warhola was said to be a brilliant market  analyst though he is not commonly recognized as such: New York's Museum of Modern Art hosted a Symposium on pop art in December 1962 during which artists like Warhol were attacked for "capitulating" to consumerism. Critics were scandalized by Warhol's open embrace of market culture. This symposium set the tone for Warhol's reception. Throughout the decade it became increasingly clear that there had been a profound change in the culture of the art world, and that Warhol was at the center of that shift.

US propaganda operations with such names as Operation Mockingbird that proceed under the direction of its operatives in the field operating under the cover of seemingly benign front groups such as the Congress for Cultural Freedom the AFL-CIO, The Paris Review, The Partisan Review,  and Ms Magazine amongst the tens of thousands of success stories that advance capitalism’s message of a mixed economy to cover up the dark and dismal public secret that capitalism is intrinsically is has much more in common with organized crime of Narco-Terrorism. A cold and dark capitalism that has for decades supported many US allies in Third World countries from Burma, Turkey and Afghanistan with its massive opium crops, to South America and Columbia, Bolivia, Peru, and Mexico, where the US efforts to controlled political unrest creates new form of unrest…

But what about DEA operations in Columbia, Peru and Bolivia, where recent changes in those countries can be viewed as reflecting changes in the American policies of President Obama and Attorney General Holder

 

Where until 2012, Colombia was the world’s leading producer of cocaine as it was stated by the CIA “Three-quarters of the world’s annual yield of cocaine has been produced in Colombia” where very clinically it is stated by the CIA in its typical deceptive manner that the main crops of Columbia are ” coffee, cut flowers, bananas, rice, tobacco, corn, sugarcane, cocoa beans, oilseed, vegetables; shrimp; forest products” (CIA World fact Book Online).

Where it has been alleged by the US media giant  “the decline in Colombian cocaine production is largely the result of Plan Colombia, a $7.5 billion U.S.-backed effort launched in 1999 to help the South American government crack down on a left-wing insurgency and drug organizations.”. When in actuality these are fueled by unbridled illegal US based criminal sales of illicit drugs in what exists solely to fill the demands of and illegal drug trade in the United States that exists solely due to the policies of the United States government and it systemic corporate capitalist basis.

“As Cocaine produced in Columbia, both from cocaine base imported from Peru (primarily the Huallaga Valley) and Bolivia, and from locally grown coca. There was a 28% increase from the amount of potentially harvestable coca plants which were grown in Colombia in 1998. This, combined with crop reductions in Bolivia and Peru, made Colombia the nation with the largest area of coca under cultivation after the mid-1990s. Coca grown for traditional purposes by indigenous communities, a use which is still present and is permitted by Colombian laws, only makes up a small fragment of total coca production, most of which is used for the illegal drug trade”

Where illicit drug trafficking is conveniently moved from one country to another by the policies supported by the United States government without proper address of those issues which the United States maintains the most sophisticated of legal drug markets in chaos of an almost non-existent health care system for the address of those issues.

In the activities of the CIA’s precursors “Bernays’s most extreme political propaganda activities were said to be conducted on behalf of the multinational corporation United Fruit Company (today’s Chiquita Brands International) and the U.S. government to facilitate the successful overthrow (see Operation PBSUCCESS) of the democratically elected president of Guatemala, Colonel Jacobo Arbenz Guzman. Bernays’s propaganda (documented in the BBC documentary, The Century of the Self), branding Arbenz as communist, was published in major U.S. media. According to a book review by John Stauber and Sheldon Rampton of Larry Tye’s biography of Bernays, The Father of Spin: Edward L. Bernays & The Birth of PR, “the term ‘banana republic’ actually originated in reference to United Fruit’s domination of corrupt governments in Guatemala and other Central American countries”.

But where the modern American ideological basis of capitalism is not as it is quaintly presented in it legal forms but in it dark sinister forms of the Robber Barons who it is known today used all means necessary to accomplish their goals where the roots of the liberals Nelson Rockefeller and John D. “Jay” Rockefeller IV allegedly reviled by conservatives begins with John Davison Rockefeller in what often is forgotten in the heavy handed tactics that made them what they are that began in the oil fields of Pennsylvania.

Prostitution  is said to be the world’s oldest profession but it is not often considered as the foundation and basis of capitalism in the conservative arguments for capitalism because most of the present capitalist rhetoric was the product of its cold war with the Soviet Union and Soviet Bloc countries where it attempted quite humorously to present itself as the ethical and moral better at the same time its elites fueled the orgies and decadence.

But the basis of. this is not to prove the moral and ethical superiority of a society that is socialized but that capitalism is by nature is as immoral as Sodom and Gomorrah, and as illegal as out right theft, organized crime. In schemes typified by the likes of Al Capone,

Murder Incorporated, the Nevada Chicken Ranch, rum running, slave trading, pyramid schemes, stock market frauds in all that which comprises capitalism which exists today in the basic frauds it thrives on in financial and insurance schemes against consumers, small business, workers and society as a whole.

As such I have made Al Capone and Genghis Khan my figurative representations of capitalism while recognizing that “Feminine Mystique” depicted in trendy magazines do not comport well to confirm what I present. But as how I see capitalism but which in the totality of capitalism presents well the insanity of what I call the conservative liberal dichotomy of a bipolar philosophical representations where most alternatives presented are ill-rational misrepresentations of one impossibility after another in what merely transports the viewers to those two unoriginal concepts of conservative and liberal capitalism in what exists totally as a fiction.

So why this shell game of fraud and deception? Why such a waste of society’s resources?

Why guide society around and around in what inevitable has to be seen as a waste of time and efforts? In what I can suppose there hope if one believes in Nirvana and Heaven? Where there maybe some reluctance in fears in a belief of hell? Where human being are deprived of the one faculty that can protect them in safety from such insanities of its own society’s designs in what is conceived as the souls of something betters in what comes to mind.

Forgive me as I digress as I am not all that comfortable in such idle representations as can be made, and are made every day in what is facilitated in this world’s greatest threat or enterprise where the world’s entire population is linked but where actively those who created such a system of technological design wish nothing more sinister that to control not just the system which they own nut the people and souls of those trapped in that system.

So allow me to say one thing in what coincides with the conceptual of cheap film:

1.  nothing is real

2.  though you are real

3. So if nothing is real and you are real it is simple to call that a paradox

4. Or as it is said

“In brief, dialectics can be defined as the doctrine of the unity of opposites. This embodies the essence of dialectics, but it requires explanations and development.”

“explanations and development”

That are made impossible because some profit financially from the ignorance of others regardless of the form such ignorance and a profit takes.

So one can believe what one may in faith opinion but in criminal acts every legalized or illegal does has its basis in making financial and material profits as does capitalism which sympathetically I confess has a very difficult time of it as it collapses from the weight of it own bull shit (manure)  that at once stinks as putrid, exists as a valuable commodity.

A product that “stinks as putrid, exists yet as a valuable commodity”  in what seems nice but apathetically is meaningless except that it exists as a stinky putrid product of capitalism which most people in industrial societies are no longer interested in though they should be.

As urban and rural communities from China and the United States, to Africa and South America are pitted against each other by the corporate collectives of mega businesses without regard as to the costs and smell of their daily operations that grows as heavy burdens under which weight all lessers are crushed and destroyed based upon pretexts rationalizations and excuses for which there is merely the logic of madness.

Manuel Noriega, following his arrest by U.S. authorities. For more than a decade, Panamanian Manuel Noriega was a highly paid CIA asset and collaborator, despite knowledge by U.S. drug authorities as early as 1971 that the general was heavily involved in drug trafficking and money laundering. Noriega facilitated "guns-for-drugs" flights for the Nicaraguan Contras, whom the US were heavily supporting, providing protection and pilots, as well as safe havens for drug cartel officials, and discreet banking facilities.

So generally speaking I suppose the odds are that most government and the wise guys of organized crime agree organized crime is the epitome of capitalists free enterprise and a truly free capitalist economy where working people can get some kind of job if they are will to stoop that low to the level of politicians, crooks, and big business. Where we can thank drug prohibition for so many innovations in the advancement of government intrusions and control of the economy.

As ORGANIZED CRIME = FREE ENTERPRISE CAPITALISM in what neatly contributes more to the economy of small business than the US Small Business Administration nut with out the stupidity of US government paperwork produced by spineless Congressional opportunists and jingoists.
