Apropos of the article “Waging Peace: Mass Arrests at White House Antiwar Rally” floating on the web, as an ‘untermensch’ whose people are suffering the brunt of “imperial mobilization”, I humbly say thank you to the courageous handful of conscionable American people, all 61 of them who offered their arrests to make a profound statement of conscience. Of the 200-plus million American people, that even 61 would feel the pain of “freedom” that the world is being subjected to is still a statement of conscience.
Having said that, symbolism is no match for political science.
None of the people mentioned above, including authors of books, who have so courageously stood up for the minimal decency that none of the rest of us seem to have, have apparently penetrated that fact in their speeches, writings, and in offering their ownselves for arrest. Do they seriously thinks that previously Mr. Bush, and now his successor Mr. Obama, are following their own agendas? If the answer is yes, then perhaps addressing them as these courageous people are doing is the right approach.
But if the answer is no, then what are these people doing remaining abjectly silent on the real puppetmasters for whom these errand boys are working? Just as Mr. Bush was replaced by Mr. Obama with entirely predictably no policy change ( http://tinyurl.com/puppetmaestros ), the cycle will continue – yet the people who bring it all on for their own agendas for world government, well, they remain out of the spotlight.
Go for arresting the occulted bats, indicting them for crimes against humanity, for orchestrating all the world wars, for orchestrating all the global pestilences, from global financial collapse, to global warming, to global pandemics, and soon global food crisis, to be perhaps followed by global alien sightings…. for as they themselves acutely forecasted: “In short, the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up, rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion’ to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.”, instead of offering yourselves for arrest.
Unless 10 million people offer themselves for arrest, such symbolism has no meaning for the hectoring hegemons: “It’s like deciding – well I am going to decide policy based upon a focus group”!
But even 61 people filing cases in all 50 states and in federal court, and in the EU, UK, just as Jane Burgemeister has done ( http://tinyurl.com/janeburg ), and as Kawther Salam has done ( http://tinyurl.com/Kawther-EhudBarak ), and focussed on the behind the scene oligarchs and in unraveling their overarching criminal conspiracy for world government, can put some real teeth into not only bringing your troops home, but also ending the global pestilences.
