The Myth of Main Street Versus Wall Street
When reality is replaced by illusion it is always at the expense and pain of everyday people.
Corporate media sound bites of illusion, omission, and disinformation have replaced any semblance of the dissemination of truth or the systemic reasons for the intensifying pain and suffering of everyday Black, Brown, Red, White, and Yellow peoples in this nation and throughout the world. The corporate-controlled Democratic Party foxes and Republican Party wolves know that there is a growing people’s anger at the vampiric corporate plutocracy in the United States; and so they continuously spin webs of deception intended to confuse and mislead the people, while in actuality protecting their corporate / military puppet masters and benefactors.
De facto corporate vampires and proliferators of war are depicted by the “news” media as “peace keepers (or peace seekers)” and as being the economic guardians of the people. In its role as the propaganda wing of the government, the Democratic Party foxes, and the Republican Party wolves, the corporate media touts the phony, absurd, and ridiculous sound bite myth of so-called ‘Main Street versus Wall Street.’ The fact is that this is not about “streets” at all, allegorical or otherwise. This is about real, flesh and blood, everyday people whose pain, fear, and suffering is being pimped and manipulated by both the Democratic Party foxes and the Republican Party wolves.
The narrative being disseminated by the media is an inaccurate, twisted, and corporate one. It is not the people’s narrative. Rather, it is illusion propagated for the purpose of control and manipulation.
Honing in exclusively on the fact that many, if not most, of the so-called ‘tea-partiers’ (for example) are racists, is missing the systemic point. It is missing the forest for the trees; for capitalism is itself, by exploitative necessity - fundamentally, both racist and avaricious. As long as the capitalist system of economic vampires exists and is allowed to control the historical and contemporary narrative, racism and every other form of systemic manipulation and exploitation, will continue unabated. It does not have to be this way!
The fact that the burgeoning poor, and particularly the massive Black underclass in this nation, are languishing in increasing economic, social, and political deprivation is directly related to the actions of the systemic gate keepers (irrespective of their colors or gender) to cunningly play upon the very pain of everyday people. Class and color continue to be barometers of systemic warfare against the poor; now, more often than not, carried out by certain so-called people of color as systemic gate keepers of exploitation.
The hundreds of U.S. military bases around this planet, and the concomitant U.S. led wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and elsewhere have nothing whatever to do with democracy, or the economic, social, and political security for and of everyday peoples in this nation or abroad. Rather, it is all about insatiable corporate greed, and the actualized desire on the part of a relatively small economic elite, to hoard and control the resources of this nation and of Mother Earth. Thus, the name of the game is to keep people in fear, divided, and thereby controlled. Indeed, these policies ensure so-called terrorist acts, which in turn, reinforce people’s fear and pliability. Hence, continues the never ending and perpetually maintained cycle of manipulation, exploitation, and war.A great irony in all of this is that the real terrorism is actually the daily systemic terrorism of capitalism’s manipulation and exploitation of, and against, the poor.
Even as Barack Obama and his Democratic Party foxes, and the Republican Party wolves, chirp about helping everyday people, they are callously emaciating us / them. It is time to pay close attention to the actions of that sly wizard, that ‘man behind the curtain.’ It is time to tear down the entire curtain so that all can see who is manipulating us and what this system is really about. It is time to take back and disseminate the narrative of, for, by, and most importantly with, the everyday people. For our own survival, and that of humanity, we must tell our own stories - the people’s story!
It is important to organizefor a different reality, one based upon the everyday people’s narrative and the certain belief and knowledge that we, the people, are the only ones who will usher in real creative, sustainable change!
Come, one and all! Each-one-teach-one! Let us carry on in this demanding process of building, and of creating a different society, and a better world. Humanity’s struggle calls and we must answer. Onward now my sisters and brothers! Onward!
