...But of these sophisms and elenchs of merchandise I skill not...
Milton, Areopagitica

Except he had found the
standing sea-rock that even this last
Temptation breaks on; quieter than death but lovelier; peace
that quiets the desire even of praising it.

Jeffers, Meditation On Saviors



What we need now is

Magic Socialism

“There is no serious War on Drugs,” Bowden writes. “Rather, there is violence, nourished by the money to be made from drugs. And there are U.S. industries whose primary lifeblood comes from fighting a war on drugs.”


This is only a note toward fuller explication, a placeholder, some kind of scrawled sign, an arrow...

First get rid of the inaccurate and dangerous term "The Jews". Even though what we're trying to name uses that to describe itself it has no right to the name because it elides and ignores and refuses standing to what is the most redemptive and humanly inspiring portion of the demographic it calls forth. Even though it's easier to say "The Jews" than to say "Those guys that are doing that". Shooting the wrong person isn't justified by the atrociousness of who you were aiming at, whatever the pigs keep telling us.
Secondly, open up to the mystical, the metaphysical, the spiritual, the mumbo-jombo-y mysteries and occult wonders. Things really are not the way they seem, even though everything we have or do or ever will have or do is tangible physically-based and open to rational inspection. Life is not boundaried by the limits our perceptions, our perceptions are, that's all.
Okay now, the guys we're trying to descrbe are Jews, mostly, at least now, but they are not, keep repeating this, most Jews. They are a minority with power that gives them majority decision-making. And one of their watch-words is "Is it good for the Jews?" This is a very common phrase there. And a lot of us are concerned to the point of irrational anxiety that a conspiracy of this minority of men who are Jews, while not being a conspiracy of all Jews, is responsible for a great deal of the awfulness of this moment, which increases daily. It's important that this get clearer.
Christianity is a Jewish construct. With the Old Testament attached beyond extrication to the New, Christianity is thoroughly and inseparably a Jewish construct. So, is Christianity "good for the Jews"? Historically not so much. Historically a great amount of oppression and active persecution as well as chronic low-grade intolerance and injustice hae originated within the Christian community as instituted. But what about now, today? Because what I'm reaching toward is a metaphysical answer to a puzzle whose ravelling details are destroying virtually everything I most admire about the human presence on earth, and because I can't find a way through the massive complexity that doesn't lead back toward this same idea. That all that suffering went toward a day of retaliative triumph. You need to understand, fully comprehend what it meant for people with slow vengeance burning in their hearts for millenia, to tear down Babylon. And that wasn't the end of it, won't be the end of it. Christianity gave George W. Bush the White House, even more decisively than CNN and FOXNews did, and Gearge W. Bush gave the people I'm trying to name here control over the military and economic strength of the most powerful nation yet seen in world history. So in that sense Christianity has been very good for "The Jews". And if only that's what we were talking about, if only it was something as simply and easily described as "The Jews" I could sit back and spew reams of anti-Semitic theory and condemnation. But it looks more and more to me like the riddle is deep and intricate and profoundly disarming. That the key to our salvation, if salvation is still possible, will have to come out of the same people wjose broad-brush identity covers those who are dooming us and creating suffering on untold scale all around.
Like I said, notes, thoughts still forming, chaotic a little, not organized enough, but who knows what happens tomorrow, and I wanted it said today.
