Part-I, Part-II, Part-III, Part-IV

The New SAVAK in Pakistan, the latest spate of shia killings, should be examined in the context given below and the senseless creation of “revolutionary times” across the world will begin to make sense. Pakistan is a component of it. That component is tickled through sectarianism as that is the genius of our peoples. Other nations are tickled according to their own respective genius minds. The New SAVAK in Pakistan works for these superman gods in no less a measure than the old SAVAK worked for its own superman god. Is this stuff rocket science you people? Why can’t learned people in Pakistan see it? Especially why can’t the high falutin armchair analysts, and the defense analysts, who have routine access to media see it? Look at my examination systematically unlayering the overarching context below. Does that sound like American empire or Zionist empire to any of you? Or does it appear exactly what it is — an Oligarchic Empire for World Government being constructed with “an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece” (Hard Road to World Order, CFR 1974 – read the superman’s paper if you think I make things up with my unconstrained hyperactive imagination)!

Com’on you idle spectators and bullshit purveyors (those who deliver crap in the opportunity they get in the media), all my good friends I am sure. Six feet under the maggots can’t tell the bloody difference. Only the dead have seen the end of war, says Plato. Sure — those living see it everyday. And Most recently, in the systematic Muslim killings in Pakistan where, in the immediate aftermath of targeting the Hazara shias in Quetta with a bomb on 16 Feb. 2013, the shia eye surgeon, Dr. Ali Haider, and his 11-year-old son Murtaza Haider (photos above, more graphic images here), were ruthlessly and prematurely dispatched to meet their Maker with bullets to their head in Lahore this past Monday, 18 Feb. 2013. إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ .

Are We, You and Me, Next?KILL ME I M SHIA -- Courage and perseverance that mirrors the Palestinian defiance living and dying under the jackboots of a superman terrorist state

You, me, all of us, don’t speak up right now, you, all of you my friends in Pakistan, they are coming for you and me next (the question in the photo above is not merely rhetorical; the assertion by the child is also not rhetorical, but a dare, a show of courage and perseverance that mirrors the Palestinian defiance living and dying under the jackboots of a superman terrorist state). For, this is the harvest of remaining silent when ZA Bhutto was politically declaring the Qadianis non-Muslims. Watch this confessional speech in Urdu by the brilliant late Pakistani Shia scholar, Allama Syed Irfan Haider Abidi, in which he openly apportions due credit to the Shia scholars of the time, of 1974, for participating in that political travesty in support of the Sunni ullema led effort that ZA Bhutto was orchestrating from behind the scenes to neutralize the American sponsored fanatic religious opposition to him (see Profiles of Intelligence quoted in Who Killed Benazir Bhutto for America’s role in funding the PNA Alliance of the religious right to finally unseat ZA Bhutto).

Chicken coming home to roost for the Shias of Pakistan

Caption Quoting the Shia scholar (translation is mine): “All the Muslims in the world would not have been able to declare Qadianis kafir if ‘Ali Waale’ were not present!” (time 1m 55s) See Role of Shias in Qadianis’ Kafirdom ( )

Who gives the right to man to challenge another’s beliefs; let alone deny a people their political, religious, civil, and basic human rights, including to not be killed by either the pirate or the emperor for their beliefs, inheritance, ethnicity, their land, whatever? See Islam and Knowledge vs. Socialization.

You open that can of worms by the state giving legitimacy to calling one group “kafir”, and now the Shias and Ismailis are the new “kafirs” today. Following that, who’s next? YOU, my sunni friends, who are silently watching the spectacle of shia deaths and demonization, just as both together previously spectated the Qadiani pogroms in silence; you and your parents, and your siblings still living in Pakistan and unlucky enough to not have the Green Card or Canadian citizenship. It is these cracks and lacunas in our sectarian ethos which are perennially ripe for harvest for the “revolutionary times”, we see being enacted today in Pakistan. Unless we get rid of these sectarian cracks that are repeatedly and deliberately enlarged into fault-lines by empire builders who know how to both cultivate and harvest these most efficiently for “imperial mobilization”, we are burnt toast.

And learned people who are supposed to have the wherewithal to lead the charge, to educate the public mind to what’s really going on, to motivate them to stand up, have all been turned into glorified House Niggers and useful idiots.

Never too late to throw that yoke of servitude—even for house niggers and silent bystanders—and for selfish reasons of self-preservation if not for altruistic concern for anyone else.

So what can we do? Two things to begin with:

1) Perceptively comprehend the overarching motivation of the super-terrorists in order to come up with proper self-defence. See my article unlayering reality below. Among all the patent lies the “vulgar propagandist” (Chomsky’s epithet, not mine) Bernard Lewis spinned on Islam over the years, the one thing he stated most accurately was: “Terrorism requires only a few. Obviously the West must defend itself by whatever means will be effective. But in devising means to fight the [super]terrorist, it would surely be useful to understand the forces that drive them.” Well, obviously the victims of the super terrorists must intelligently play at that table to also defend themselves by whatever means will be effective. This will lead all of us who are capable of understanding to comprehend that all variants of Islam, “militant Islam”, “moderate Islam”, and “revolutionary Islam”, are creations of minds working assiduously on “imperial mobilization” over a lifetime. None will therefore be fooled by them.

This means shias won’t be fooled by “revolutionary Islam” despite their partisanship with the shia sect, and sunnis won’t be fooled by the other versions despite their partisanship to sunni sects. These have nothing to do with the religion of Islam and its 1.6 to 2 billion ordinary believers — but with methods of creating “controlled chaos” by cognitive infiltration of the religion, which means creating chaos that is predictable, its tempo increasable and decrease-able at will, and switch-off-able when its purpose is harvested. At present, that tap control resides in the West. It is entirely independent of the local population which therefore cannot break through its strangulating grip in the normal fashion. Just like the “Iron Wall” that surrounds Palestine. That diabolical construct was accurately described by Vladimir Jabotinsky: “This colonization can, therefore, continue and develop only under the protection of a force independent of the local population – an iron wall which the native population cannot break through.”

Something similar to this “Iron Wall” protects these mal constructs of “Islam” rapidly devouring our nation while simultaneously lending the much needed pretext to the West for sustaining its “imperial mobilization”. Its strategic and full spectrum redressing takes more than just ineffectively banning these terrorist organizations (which has been tried halfheartedly in lip-service to the Hegelian Dialectic) or ineffectively curtailing their antediluvian “Islamization of Pakistan” programs (which is talked about by the so called secular humanists who are the second line of useful idiots of empire, the first being our leaders, those who are not outright mercenaries that is). It is discussed elsewhere.

2) Bravely speak up, stand up, be part of the making your presence felt in society by giving up the silence of the lamb, the ostrich, and the coward.

In that speaking up, and standing up, boycott the forthcoming Pakistani elections.

Not participating is a resounding NO vote to reject the entire corrupt system. Do not participate in a fabricated system designed to ab initio continue its servility to massa; all waters run only Westward, even if wearing the turban, the beard, clean-shaved, in uniform, in awami-libas, in duppatta, in burqa – and that includes Imran Khan, the favorite savior of the young generation.

Imran Khan is some part of the right-wing Difa-e-Pakistan Council (Defence of Pakistan Council – DPC) group of “militant Islam” formerly known by different acronyms some officially banned: SSP1, LeT2, LeJ3, JeM4, ASWJ5, JuD6, TNSM7, etc., (I lost track), who are state-sponsored and even openly supported by the Punjab government (PML-N’s Chief Minister in Punjab Shahbaz Sharif et. al.) and by right-wing elements of the ISI. And of course, Imran Khan also occasionally flirts with the “moderate Islam” of Tahir-ul-Qadri. Both Hegelian Dialectics of “Islam” are sponsored by different factions from within the Pakistan military, which in turn is paid from the Western tax-payers hard earned monies to become the coveted Military Inc. of Pakistan with the Western power’s great blessings. This praetorian guard, a rising new “feudal class” in Pakistan, is now fully invested in staying America’s proxy army in Pakistan. This is how power flows in Pakistan today behind the veneers and puppetshows put up before the public – be it the elected Parliament, or the many variants of “Islam”. Without their minimally tacit approval, not a fly can buzz in Pakistan. It would be found riddled with bullet holes the very next day. The combined output of all these variants of “Islam” and their open and secret benefactors, is to lay the groundwork for the creation of “revolutionary Islam”, whether or not they each realize it. That is the shia arc of crescent a long time in the making and yet to be fully realized. We are, after all, looking at a lifetime of World Was IV. Many teams have to play their part, and it seems to me that “revolutionary Islam” has been gestating in the oven too long. I am sure General Hameed Gul (Ret.) understands this better than the brainless posterboy of modernity, Imran Khan, his foolish rapidly aging protégé who has been dying to become president at all cost. A good donkey to ride on for the ubermensch.

But then again, perhaps not, as it was this traitor General, then head of the ISI, who gave to neighboring Muslim Afghanistan “their Vietnam War” in service to his massa in Washington, purveying the fiction of “strategic depth” to carry the Pakistan army along. I once had a long conversation with a former director of ISI the day after his daughter’s wedding at which I was an unofficial (hobbyist) photographer. When I presented the bride and groom with a beautiful photo album of their wedding pictures that I instantly had processed the same day, the father of the bride invited me to join them for lunch, which I did. In the conversation he disclosed that he was a former director of ISI, and when I explained to him where he got his specious “strategic depth” from to fck Pakistan, he simply couldn’t believe nor refute the commonsense of my straightforward observations. I held him to rapt attention for the entire time and all he could murmur was: why did it not occur to us? None of these Generals are known for their commonsense. Groomed at Westpoint and Sandhurst, they reach their positions of power in Pakistan’s military only after being vetted by the white man to be psychologically able to carry the white man’s burden on Pakistan’s back without complaint. As I noted in 2008:

‘In 2007, while the ‘Army Act 2007’ was still in effect, I offered two Pakistani military men, recently retired 3-star generals, whom I had occasion to partake a meal with in Islamabad, that I could craft any terrorist to their specification for them for a mere $15000 – a number that I conjured up out of thin air thinking it was suitably low to impress upon them how easy it was to harvest the surviving victims whose parents, wives, daughters, sons, had been bombed to smithereens, who had nothing to look forward to in life except the abyss of hunger, deprivation, and alienation, and especially from among those holding the ‘Pakhtoonwali’ tradition. I was trying to rationally talk them out of bombing our own peoples in the tribal belt in this fictional ‘war on terror’ by explaining to them how Machiavellian political science works. I had held their attention for over 3-1/2 hours. And I was rather stunned when one of the 3-star generals of Pakistan’s Army, and let me hasten to add (Retired), responded to my ‘jihadi manufacturing challenge’ with “Zahir you are asking too much, I could do it for $2000”!’

Imran Khan is the worst Trojan horse of them all – why? Because he is presented as “Mr. clean” and unrecognizable by the masses as being worse than “Mr. Ten Percent” from whom many Pakistanis knew what to expect from the very beginning. As an intelligence and Western asset, Imran Khan will deliver the worst nightmare yet to simpleton Pakistanis. All his plans are outright scams to feed more people from the gravy-train of state treasury. All his plans are plans to loot and plunder anew – for the fresh crop of plunderers – since he cannot harvest any of the old already sponged off stuff. His energy plan or education plan for instance? After HEC under Ata ur Rahman and Sohail Naqvi squandered billions in crap, Imran Khan is proposing to spend trillions, 2.5 trillion in fact, to replace one crap with another crap. He wants to make English compulsory and the medium of instruction after 8th grade in Urdu medium and public schools to bring them at parity with English medium schools; and teach everyone in Pakistan the same standardized curriculum. What is that mother? Even India which is ahead of us in all metrics education, does not have such an insane policy. Yet they have IITs which surpass the best IVYs in America in terms of competition to get in. The son of Infosys president couldn’t get into IIT so he went to Cornell – as a safety school! We don’t have one decent university in Pakistan where I would love to send my own children and this moron now wants to spend 2.5 trillion rupees in another boondoggle? Increasing literacy rate is great goal – it cannot be carried out in a slave state with no economy to absorb them. The development of a nation cannot happen overnight – only its rape and theft in the name of doing speciously sounding great things can happen overnight. Just like Ata Ur Rahman did, and no one could challenge that mother for his hare-brained schemes that turned Pakistan’s higher education universities into a diploma mill for third-rate and often plagiarized work (see my report sent to the Supreme Court of Pakistan—also ignored by them).

As for Imran Khan’s energy policy? You think anyone in Pakistan has the balls to go against the WB-IMF tag team which has neo-liberalized, i.e., privatized our economy? See what Thomas Friedman says about it below: “The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist — McDonald’s cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the builder of the F-15. And the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley’s technologies is called the United States Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.”

Imran Khan is just offering more scams and only fools and simpletons will go for them—that is our Pakistani genius. Watch him and his confrere, the flag-bearer of “moderate Islam”, Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri, partake at the massa’s table in the 2011 World Economic Forum. Invited there to ensure that the brown-nosing horses run in the future electoral races will all be compliant to the white man’s burden! These two bit house niggers, groomed into power in Pakistan the same way Benazir Bhutto was, have the balls to stand up to the massa? With what? The Pakistan military works for the same massa, are paid from the same coffers, as does the entire bureaucracy, the media, public and private institutions, and what is now almost a fashion to be considered avant-garde, to call oneself a think-tank, all of whom continually echo the same core axioms of the massa, live off of its largesse of aid, and occasionally play controlled dissent.

Caption Pakistani house niggers at the elite's World Economic Forum annual meeting, Januray 27, 2011, seated next to the massa. What are they doing there? Being rewarded for selling "moderate Islam" and Fatwa on Terrorism while echoing the core axioms of massa.

Caption Pakistani house niggers, Imran Khan and Tahir ul Qadri, seated on the massa’s table at the Western super financial elite’s World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, January 27, 2011. (Photograph source: a reader submission) How did these two political “no-ops” of least significance get invited to world economic forum for the white man’s recognition? They are neither financiers, nor industrialists, and nor do they hold any economic or financial ministerial position within the government of Pakistan. Yes, as Western intelligence assets managed by their local counterpart, both are being rewarded for selling the massa’s pitch on “moderate Islam” (even in their occasional controlled dissent with the Pakistani establishment which is most dutifully towing the massa’s full line on “militant Islam”). And Tahir ul Qadri specifically for his “600 page Fatwa on Terrorism. Both house niggers artfully retain the core axioms of massa on “militant Islam”, to continually push the envelope of the Hegelian Dialectic forward as a self-fulfilling prophecy!

I say, enough of being fcking simpletons!

Unlayering the Middle East War Agenda: Making Sense of Absurdities

Sunday, January 23, 2011

President George W. Bush poses with President-elect Barack Obama, and former presidents, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2009, in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)


This is a response to the unforensic focus on the Middle East War Agenda which permeates the alternate media even today, well into the 10th year of the New Pearl Harbor, orchestrated like the Nazi’s Operation Canned Goods to “goosestep the herrenvolk across international frontiers” – first into Afghanistan, Iraq, gradually inching its way throughout the arc of crisis, next target: the Crescent of Crisis, Iran. Time magazine had quoted Zbigniew Brzezinski self-servingly presaging these very events in 1979 at the cusp of the Iranian Revolution: “An arc of crisis stretches along the shores of the Indian Ocean, with fragile social and political structures in a region of vital importance to us threatened with fragmentation. The resulting political chaos could well be filled by elements hostile to our values and sympathetic to our adversaries.” (U.S. National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Time, Jan. 15, 1979)

It was in the same year that President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor, waging a clandestine proxy war upon the USSR, had started giving covert aid to the CIA backed Afghan mercenaries (later renamed “Mujahideens”) to foment sufficient agitation at the flank of the USSR to provoke a Soviet Intervention in Afghanistan to protect their own hegemonic interests: “According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.” After the Soviet Union had taken the bait and invaded, blood-thirsty murderer playing chess in other peoples’ blood, Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski confessed in 1998 that he again wrote to Jimmy Carter back in December 1979: “The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.” (1998 interview to French magazine Le Nouvel Observateur)

Thus, the arc of crisis which Brzezinski had glibly predicted in January 1979, was firmly seeded by January 1980 as the Carter Doctrine, otherwise known as “God is on your side, to set it all ablaze in the coming future. Sufficiently implanted with the necessary explosive mix of religion, “jihad”, hostage crisis, Iranian Revolution, Soviet intervention in Afghanistan, drug trade, and sectarian fanaticism unleashed in Pakistan by the hanging-judge-military dictator General Zia Ul Haq installed there by the Carter White House in support of the CIA cultivating and harvesting “Islamic Mujahideens” to fight the USSR, it didn’t take much ignition beyond the priming. The fire quickly became self-sustaining as new recruits grew up in the lighted cauldron and couldn’t easily distinguish their head from their ass – especially with the Pakistan military being in full collusion with the CIA in screwing both Pakistan and Afghanistan society on the Grand Chessboard. Today, these war criminals pat themselves on the back for destroying the USSR with Muslim and Afghani blood costing the complete destruction of what was previously a still stable Afghani and Pakistani society – but they’ll all hang someday even if their carcass has to be dragged out from six feet under. In 1996, Zbigniew Brzezinski renamed the arc of crisis in his next geostrategy book The Grand Chessboard, with an even more imposing epithet, “the global zone of percolating violence”, illustrating with maps galore the arc of crisis for those still uninitiated into the vagaries of the exercise of American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Initiatives of the sole unchallenged superpower. (page 53)

That foretold future – explicitly and very publicly presaged in 1979 in a popular weekly magazine read by all and sundry not just in the United States, but in the entire world – fully unleashed by the New Pearl Harbor on September 11, 2001, had the former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice self-righteously justify the purpose of America’s hegemonic cultivation of the global zone of percolating violence” in 2006 in these sacred words: “What we’re seeing here, in a sense, is…the birth pangs of a new Middle East and whatever we do, we have to be certain that we’re pushing forward to the new Middle East, not going back to the old one.” (U.S. Secretary of State to George W. Bush, Condoleezza Rice, July 21, 2006)

All the preceding is what the blood thirsty hectoring hegemons have themselves narrated.

But comparing their narration to empiricism tells a slightly different story.

That War Agenda today to “birth pangs of a new Middle East” is still variously blamed upon:

  • the Zionist agenda for Eretz Yisrael,

  • and/or upon the sole superpower’s Primacy and Its Geostrategic Initiatives to preemptively acquire and extract the natural resources in the Middle East and Central Asia before any other nation or group of nations can rise to challenge its dominance.

The former Zionist agenda is pitched as the ungodly wars waged by the Jewish neoconservaties who dominate Washington, blueprinted in their PNAC and other Wolfowitz drawn strategy documents for Securing the Jews-only Realm.

The latter superpower agenda is pitched as the wars of primacy for America’s sole preeminence, blueprinted in Zbigniew Brzezinski’s The Grand Chessboard and in Pentagon’s many Joint Vision strategy documents.

Both premise, while appearing sensible in 2003 when I too employed them in my maiden book Prisoners of the Cave, in the light of today’s empiricism outright lead to absurdities.

America is going bankrupt due to these global wars with rising national debt which now stands in the 13 trillion dollar range as officially reported by the US Treasury, and its budget deficit this year, 2011, is 1.4 trillion dollars. This means America has to borrow, i.e., have its central bank the Federal Reserve print, 40 cents for every dollar it spends, thus also commensurately increasing the national debt and the burden upon the already suffering American tax payer.

What sort of idiotic primacy agenda for preeminence is that?

The United States hasn’t been able to extract any of the natural resources either from the Middle East and Central Asian soils anymore than she was already extracting previously – as much as it wanted – with its own coddled dictators firmly in power.

Why did she need to wage murderous wars to decimate the region to remove its own cultivated dictators?

It also sure hasn’t been good for the Anglo-American oil companies – they can’t do business when the region is torn asunder by the cycle of insurgency and counter-insurgency manufactured by the Anglo-American Allies themselves. Same in Afghanistan – no pipelines, only the so called quagmires, as even the mainstream news of the United States puts it.

As for Israel, if Eretz Yisrael is the principal reason for decimating Iraq with millions of tons of Depleted Uranium munitions, destroying its fertile top soils and bountiful water tables, not to mention the ancient DNA of its inhabitants, and with only immense hatred and ire of its millions of Arabs now irretrievably implanted to greet the Zionist from Israel if they ever set foot onto its soil for resettlement, then the Jews can’t really occupy that land for themselves now can they?

What did the Israelis really gain by brutally removing the servile Iraqi puppet of their own client state, the United States?

Only chaos in the region!

What Zionistan’s founding father, David Ben Gurion, would have easily called “revolutionary times”. Well, according to that science of hegemonic conquest, these chaos-like conditions in the Middle East have also only created more fertile grounds to administer further mind-fcks to the natives because “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”.

What other benefit? Perhaps some smaller equally compliant but unstable ethnic principalities carved out of the former equally compliant monolithic and stable Iraq, which today lies in ruin.

But wait, NO Eretz Yisrael!

Only enormous hatred for Israel, and America.

What an agenda for preeminence!

Only the keystone cops could have blueprinted it.


Reality is almost like an onion.

Comes in layers.

The outer layer, when peeled, shows the next inner layer.

And so on down to the core.

It is difficult to get to the core of reality, without first unpeeling it, layer by layer.

The empirical fact however is that it is not mentioned in the mainstream, and by many others in dissentstream either, because the conspiracy is to not even acknowledge that the onion exists at all for social engineering of ‘United we Stand’ and ‘introducing beneficial cognitive diversity’ to mislead the public.

But the outer layer of the onion is not the entire onion, however persuasive and inviting it may appear!

These are mere labels, the neocons, neoconservatives, neo-cons, they mean nothing by themselves.

America has been involved in warfare from Wounded Knee to Afghanistan, and before WWII, there were no neo-cons by that name.

So how does one explain America’s vast military-industrial-academe-media complex which is what actually wages the wars? How does one explain America’s national security state?

But why do they wage wars?

For Israel?

The focus on Israel, and the Jewish Lobby, in my view, can at times be a gigantic red herring. See: “Pamphlet: How To Return to Palestine”, and “The white man’s burden still looks white in color!”. The real focus must remain on the oligarchy which funds all sides of wars, and have been doing so for 250 years, and for what eventual purpose?

The War on Terror, the war on Afghanistan, the war on Iraq, the war on Pakistan, the war on Iran, on whatever mantras and asinine pretexts, by themselves make no sense – as the war of neo-conservatism – and it is easy to pin it upon the most visible harbingers for their most obvious motives! The outer layer of the onion.

And what about the silent economic wars of neo-liberalism – aka free trade?

Thomas Friedman best captured the interplay of these two sides of the imperial coin – the thunderous wars of shock and awe, and the matching silent wars of hunger and deprivations due to the loot and plunder of global natural resources via the stranglehold of contrived third world debt – in his 1999 New York Times column titled Manifesto for a Fast World: “The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist — McDonald’s cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the builder of the F-15. And the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley’s technologies is called the United States Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.”

But peel down behind both types of wars, behind both philosophies of primacy which are as old as hegemony, as old as mankind, and we get World Government.

Global Governance would not be possible without the transformative abilities of these wars which seed controlled chaos, deprivations, disenfranchisement, and fabricated public appeals to authorities to resolve matters. Which of course they subsequently do, with greater and greater centralization of powers into the private hands of the same oligarchy who create the very crises for which they ex post facto present their own preferred solutions. See: Response to Financial Times Gideon Rachman’s ‘And now for a world government’.

David Ben Gurion aptly described this Machiavellian modus operandi as “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”.

The unlayering is important to get to the heart of the matter, quickly, before it is too late. And one of the reason it is not unlayered in time, is to seed fait accompli. That is the master political science. To understand this political science which is time-critical and which is what enables only narrating these matters ex post facto, see: “Of Ostriches and Rebels on The Hard Road to World Order”.

That too, by itself, is still not the inner most core of the onion, only the next layer down, but it already demonstrates that focus on the outer layer of the onion of reality, the visible reality, makes for a great red herring.

No one in Plato’s cave can ever figure out the reality behind the images on the screen, by examining, and in no matter what excruciating a scholarship, the images on the screen before them.

That is why the outer layer of the onion, whether one sees the onion at all or not, is often pointless garbage.

Whenever I cook dinner at home, I always throw away the outer layer of the onion, it tastes terrible :-)

Thank you.
