Original Intent of Disability Legislation
and Litigation, cont’d
 Ruling and managerial classes originally fought like dogs
to stop these bills and lawsuits
 Proponents of legislation and litigants never meant to
ram psychiatric drugs down the throats of tens of millions
of innocent people; rather, they often sought the
diametric opposite
 Now that the laws exist, they are being abused on a
massive scale by the power-hungry ruling and managerial
classes to push psychiatric drugs
 FMLA, originally vehemently opposed by corporations, is now
also being abused by them on an equally massive scale to
evade ever having to pay sick leave
 And that makes me a bitch?

Demographics of Consumerism

 Crosses gender, racial, and socioeconomic lines
 Prevalence and severity inexorably worsening with each
successive generation of Americans

country of origin or generation
 Roman Empire had disintegrated under similar
circumstances, likely because of pandemic lead poisoning
from the plumbing having been lined with lead

“I had no special cares to drown, but it became my tyrannical pleasure to draw over my senses the veil of oblivion. I loved the valley of the
shadow of death. I knew there was danger that one night I should pass over the line, into a sleep from which there would be no waking,
but death held no terrors for me. Nay, to bring all of my faculties and powers and ambitions into the sweet oblivion of transient death was
the one pleasure for which I cared to live.”

The War between the States was actually the final showdown
between agrarian feudalism and industrial capitalism. This is
why Sherman burned the Deep South with impunity, so that
industrialization could proceed unchallenged. Only a small,
close-knit community of bloomer-wearing, teetotaling radicals
was ever genuinely concerned about the welfare of African
Americans; the megamaniacal industrialists merely co-opted
the issue of colonial slavery late in the war to rationalize their
bloodlust for power. Consequently, the benefit of the conflict to
African Americans was only temporary.
And this makes me and her bitches?

Since the triumph of industrial capitalism during the War
between the States, the Western world, particularly the U.S., has
been built on blood for jobs. Geopolitical militarism and
“blood for oil” is just the tip of the tip of the iceberg. Roman
imperialism, medieval papacy, and colonialism were all
precursors to blood for employment, but making a living
doing things that one should not be doing came to full fruition
once agrarian feudalism had been vanquished.
And that makes me a bitch?

nuclear fission

 Alternative medicine is more biochemically advanced than pharmacology and
surgery
 Recognition of man-made climate change is more scientific than its denial

The U.S. staged a fraudulent naval “attack” in
the Gulf of Tonkin to claim that an already
decrepit and unseaworthy ship had been
destroyed by Soviet-sponsored forces from
northern Vietnam
This tiny country on the opposite shore of the
Pacific Ocean was invaded for no other reason
than to stimulate the economy, create jobs,
and make some already overprivileged people
rich
Millions of Vietnamese and U.S. soldiers were
killed
Millions of Vietnamese and U.S. soldiers, as
well as the Vietnamese environment, were
seriously and permanently harmed by napalm
and Agent Orange
Some Vietnamese women and children were
sexually abused by U.S. soldiers or forced into
prostitution by poverty
Fornication between white men and Oriental
women became a major sexual fetish, a fetish
which did not exist in the 1940s

Over 100 million people a year are told that
they have something defective that must be
surgically “corrected.” The minority with a real
problem, such as appendicitis or orthopedic
injury, are denied nerve blocks, which
would've been much safer, less traumatic, and
more cost effective.
These victims are anesthetized for no other
reason than to stimulate the economy, create
jobs, and make some already overprivileged
people rich
Thousands of these each year die either
intraoperatively, over the following year, or
commit suicide over the following year or so
All of the victims at best are permanently
deprived of their creativity, imagination, and
some of their personality, and at worst suffer
outright Alzheimer
Some victims are sexually abused and then
mislead that they were abducted and molested
by aliens for scientifically impossible “genetic
experiments”
Anesthetized patients became a major sexual
fetish, a fetish which did not exist in the 1940s

There are Two Types of Interventions
 Abolition: liberation of the population from
unwanted, suicidal practices imposed by laws, dogma,
business rules, mass media propaganda, disease
mongering, and other forms of ruling and managerial
class coercion and intimidation. Elimination of forced
and coerced consumption allows violent, militaristic
practices to become extinct.
 Prohibition: enactment of laws and/or dogma
against risky but common behaviors, which millions
risk significant criminal sanctions to continue.

The yielding of ‘90s dot-com hype to neoconservatism has
shown that the information revolution will be much harder and
bloodier than the industrial revolution had been. None of the
warmongers, industrialists, capitalists, corporatists, or diseasemongers are ever going to walk away from evasion of real work,
pipeline of addictions, and access to sexual prey, no matter how
good anyone’s thinking, oration, writing, poetic, artistic,
singing, songwriting, or filmmaking skills are. Unfortunately,
the physical survival of the biosphere is going to require
carefully organized cohesive force coupled with divine
intervention.
