(AMERIKA: ‘Make-Believe’, Who Say’s America Doesn’t Make Anything Anymore – By Steven R Salgado)
…’Fake’ employment stats, a patently ‘false’ jobless economic recovery, ‘fabricated’ news and ‘blue-screen’ reporting, ‘doctored’ medical studies, ‘bought’ politicians, ‘stolen’ elections, “contrived” threats to National Security & ‘manufactured’ consent – who says America doesn’t make anything anymore.

Today, we live in an full-spectrum, holographic ‘reality tunnel’. A four-walled artificial construct exponentially inverting and increasingly beholden to the think-tanks & bean counters who disseminate our information, tweak our stat’s, and shape public opinion. In a page straight out of Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’, we’re all been ‘co-opted and gamed’ by the system – the problem though remains, we are all intricately part of this altered state of reality, giving it both life and the means by which to consume us.

Having chosen the path of least resistance (…think 60′ flat screens & granite counter tops) we have diluted ourselves into thinking that by putting off any real hard fiscal choices, we can somehow magically reverse decades of parasitic, voodoo economics and come to that happy place,…you know the one, its been drummed into your head since the cradle & whose promises are implicitly implied by virtue of every Hollywood movie ever made – your god-given right to a story-book ending.
(Hollywood’s Role in Shaping Values – http://www.brandonadams.com/david-puttnam-hollywoods-role-in-shaping-values/)
…You see, having bought the incessant political dribble of Reaganomics’, ‘Free Trade’ & ‘The Day That Will Live In Infamy’ (…yes, the sequel) we’ve quite readily and conveniently suspended our capacity for critical thinking, choosing instead to latch-on to a by-gone past sheep-dipped in fallacy. Yes, America was great and powerful throughout most of the last century due to her industrial prowess, but also largely because most of the so-called ‘civilized’ Christian world had devoured itself in barbarity & war, mostly centered in their backyard. Those who were there to pick up the pieces, profited handsomely from the stench of rotted flesh.
(“Golden Age of Capitalism”: Post–World War II economic expansion – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post%E2%80%93World_War_II_economic_expansion)
Today the stark reality of a divided, multi-tiered America sits juxtaposed the steady barrage of airbrushed American imagery that still champions the underdog, and almost child-like belief in ” The Little Engine That Could’. This Darwinian ”survival of the fittest’, is not only visible today on any major American street corner, but also, the ever widening door of a certain elitist ‘law of the jungle’ mind-set, full of contempt and self-righteous indignation for those children of a ‘lesser’ god.

..So what exactly was the epic struggles of the past two centuries all about?, are we to believe that by virtue of a simple stroke of a pen all our hard fought social contracts are rendered null & void?

While the nearly destitute among us bear the full brunt of an unforgiving police state where even a minor brush-up against the law is often a death sentence – most certainly for minorities. The Wall Street ‘crack house’ remains rigged and well greased, ensuring a few more go-a rounds for the storied privileged elites. With their ever increasing vat of hot money fresh off the presses, they will drink until the well runs dry, then deliver a stern & heavy-handed scolding to the tired, down-trodden peasantry when it does.

Wall Street New Cash Cow
The FED and Wall Street myth-makers will continue to pretend that by de-coupling from sound fiscal policy, however bitter the medicine, and ramping up the printing presses the magic money tree will once again bear fruit. Three rounds of qualitative easing later and trillions of dollars down the Corporate feeding trough has left the general populous battered & bruised and in many cases beholden to very Wall Street Banksters that perpetrated this classic Mafia ‘take-down’.

…A quick slight-of-hand saw Wall Street ‘muscle’ in on the nations imploded housing market, whereby perpetrating one of the single largest transfer of wealth from bottom to top. Today their skullduggery is worst then ever, more and more of our citizens are displaced and homeless while suburban castles sit unoccupied lest for the equity that keeps rising like so many uncut lawns.

…Lest We Forget
The Former Soviet Union disintegrated at free-fall speed, leaving even seasoned CIA Soviet Affair analysts scratching their heads – how could they have missed something so patently obvious?
In no small part was the element of national self-delusion that proliferated throughout the entire Soviet ‘top-down’ system to blame. Production figures saw there yearly targets met and new quota’s established that too would invariably be met, each round of systematic fraud brought the factory overlords the usual cascade of Georgian champagne and the accompanying party accolades for a job well done. Up the chain of command this disease would spread until the body politic of a once great nation was a festering wound unable to heal…
