I find it sadly amusing that the editor of the Pakistan People's Party sympathizers' website, fancifully titled 'letusbuildpakistan', should have reprinted Project Humanbeingsfirst's analysis of what Hamid Mir and Geo TV's gratuitous hectoring of their tiny presence in cyberspace might commonsensically portend for the PPP leadership and President Zardari, under the honorific “Conspiracy Theorists”.
And it is even more sadly amusing to me – if one is permitted to combine these two conflicting emotions simultaneously – that so far, none of its readers has chosen to publicly comment on it.
The 'Brahmin' priest couldn't have put a more effective 'Shudra' label on a lowly plebeian's work. Or perhaps the humble writing simply didn't warrant a reaction, never mind a refutation, lest one became grossly polluted by the untouchable subject. That lack of reaction is perhaps in itself a pointer to something else.
And that is, that like the rest of us ordinary 'untermenschen' struggling to make some sense of the grotesque reality around us, perhaps all the many builders of Pakistan too can stand to benefit from a little Zen in their perspectives.
That, six feet under, there is no PPP, no Military, no Mullah, no Secular Humanism, no Islamofascism, no 'left', no 'right', no empire, no hectoring hegemons, no world government, no lucrative paychecks from the local NGOs or accolades at the Western think-tanks, and no ISI assets and sayanim shilling for the handful of high-ranking mercenaries within the Pakistani Military under the Technique of Infamy.
That, maggots can equally not tell the difference who lies, who spins, who murders in how great a numbers under which blaring trumpet and uniform, the best.
And that quintessential Tao of Reflection, is apparently entirely missing from the Pakistani psyche as all the partisans of their respective churches gather around the Unbirthday Party table with the Mad Hatters of this world boisterously singing the Islamofascism song in its many harmonious variations.
It is, almost as if, that sense of Zen has deliberately, or willingly, been co-opted.
Certainly, all that American tax-payers' beautifully inflated sweat spent corrupting Pakistan has been well worth it – sure buys a lot of golf courses, Mercedes, and country homes. The hectoring hegemons' own organs of propaganda blithely proclaim how they are the paymasters of the Pakistani military, possibly the only nuclear-armed military in the world where the obedient 'Negroes' listen with the most humble posture when the whiteman speaks:
And create this mayhem in return for the blood-monies deposited in Pakistani peoples' name:
Can anyone tell the difference between Pakistan Military's barbaric assault on its own 'lesser' people, eagerly fertilizing its own soil with its own kith's blood to connivingly fabricate the patsy suicide bombers, and the American-Israeli slaughter of the 'untermenschen'? Which is worse is unarguable, if it's even possible to distinguish between the Red-Teams and the Blue-Teams:
The Los Angeles Times on Sunday, November 15, 2009 even attempted to provide some updated official ballpark numbers from Fox News' previously reported estimates of October 04, 2009 (cached), on what those blood-bribes to Pakistan's military look like. To this scribe's skeptical eye, these were off by at least one or two decimal places as they still did not account for the billions in black-ops budget which is beyond official purview and hence reporting. Nevertheless, in the report headlined: “CIA says it gets its money's worth from Pakistani spy agency”, the 'TASS' disclosed the amounts while spinning the same imperial axiom that it was to fight the 'war on terror':
'The CIA has funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to Pakistan's intelligence service since the Sept. 11 attacks, accounting for as much as one-third of the foreign spy agency's annual budget, current and former U.S. officials say. ... Almost every major terrorist plot this decade has originated in Pakistan's tribal belt, where ISI informant networks are a primary source of intelligence. ... The CIA payments are a hidden stream in a much broader financial flow; the U.S. has given Pakistan more than $15 billion over the last eight years in military and civilian aid. Congress recently approved an extra $1 billion a year to help Pakistan stabilize its tribal belt at a time when Obama is considering whether to send tens of thousands of additional troops to Afghanistan.'
The stellar 'Negro' newspaper of Pakistan, Daily Times, again parroted that imperial mantra in their own bold headline the next morning without examining where the finger was really pointing towards, deliberately omitting to draw attention to the diabolical glory of “imperial mobilization”: “ISI used CIA money to build new Islamabad headquarters : One-third of CIA budget goes to ISI”. The news reports are cached here and here for forensic scrutiny in future law courts.
Yes indeed, lost is the complex art of adding 2 + 2 to the Pakistani genius.
This phenomenon is not only local to the Pakistani soil, but transcends geographical boundaries to wherever the Pakistani genius persists. It spans the gamut from the glorified native informant's erudite prose in CFR's Foreign Affairs magazine, to the right Hon. Ambassador of Pakistan's CFR-CEIP endorsed entire book-length treatise splitting two imperially cultivated peas in a pod. And all the Machiavellian Betweens. None of course bother to explain “full spectrum dominance”, or how it is orchestrated when “Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization”, never mind attempt to unravel the destruction of the United States itself in the globalists' diabolical pursuit of one-world government by leaching-off and spending-out the unchallenged superpower's largesses into unbridled international terrorism, domestic police-state, and insolvency.
Let us together bring back that basic ability to perform simple arithmetic first, before dreaming of 'Let Us Build Pakistan'. Dupes, patsies, and 'Negroes' don't build nations. They merely help in destroying them by concentrating on the finger presented to them instead of what it's pointing to. The previous East India Company excelled in holding up many a finger and co-opting many a Raja, vazeer, and court-jester. And so does the modern hectoring hegemon. See Modernity Explained. And the 'Negro' Explained.
That self-evident truism applies to all of us who don't wish to be dupes and patsies, who don't wish to be fooled into voluntary servitude, and who don't wish to have a boot stamped on our face in perpetuity while getting us to love it! This is irrespective of where we might live, and what our tribal-cultural-religious affiliations might be. It applies to all of mankind, for all times, for “hegemony is as old as mankind.” But how to avoid being trapped under its jackboot?
I hope you, dear reader, can take the time to watch this short 2-minute clip of Bruce Lee teaching that essential Tao, of “Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory”:
Let me just add that I think, and I also feel, that anti-conspiracy skeptics are making a good start. Skepticism is indeed the hallmark of the genuine patriot. And I hasten to clarify that I do not mean to sound patronizing when saying that.
I am merely stating the obvious science of social engineering capitalized upon by none other than Hitler himself, and which is today just as ubiquitously being practiced worldwide as in the yesteryear. And that is, to know precisely where to target psyops and propaganda: at “the crowd of simpletons and the credulous ... when the voting papers of the masses are the deciding factor”.
As Hitler further observed the characteristic type most amenable to accepting bullshit as gospel from heaven, and those that aren't:
“First, those who believe everything they read; Second, those who no longer believe anything; Third, those who critically examine what they read and form their judgments accordingly.”
It's all examined here. And that isn't a conspiracy theory as the reader must surely agree, for the Third Reich was empirically built upon it. Denying that today only means one is wasting one's time speaking to only the indoctrinated idiots and fools.
So, I dare to presume that the reader of this article will accept the wisdom that 'those who critically examine what they read and form their judgments accordingly' are rather difficult to fool, and therefore, can't be classified as either indoctrinated or idiotic.
That furthermore, such people pose the only genuine existential threat to the unjust tyrant and to its thousand errand boys, and therefore, the honest man and honest woman would be proud to be included in this tiny group who genuinely do “wa-twa-so-bil-haq” as Muslims and non-Muslims. I.e., they remain actively engaged with truth no matter where it takes them, even if it goes against their own parents, against prevailing wisdom, or against their ownself. No qualms about that surely, at least to the moralizing theory part of it which is almost universal. The atheists today appear to be its greatest principled exponents judging from who stands up to falsehood more: the man of cloth perennially sitting on the prayer-mat and on the lofty pulpit preaching his 'truth' and bowing in pious prostration before his god, or others in existential protest standing up to theirs and risking their very life.
Therefore, in genuine earnestness, I once again humbly endeavor to explain – and really only under the presumption that I am indeed addressing the third group of people who do indeed take the time to critically examine what they read and form their judgments accordingly – why my deconstruction of what is happening in Pakistan is absolutely not just a 'conspiracy theory', but disclosing a real monumental conspiracy of the hectoring hegemons against the Pakistani peoples.
That, this criminal conspiracy entails having alternately glorified, then demonized, and then a change of 'errand boys' as relief, and then repeat, mercenaries at the helm of affairs in Pakistan while baby-step faits accomplis are diabolically seeded under the continuously fabricated conditions made to “look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion’”.
The unhidden goal in this round of murderous blood-plays on the Grand Chessboard: The Balkanization of Pakistan under the pretext of saving it from the Islamofascists!
That's it in a nutshell. How complicated is that for a rational mind to examine? When they don't, it implies only one thing. Only ONE!
Anyone who contributes to either the mantras of Islamofascism, Taliban, Al-Qaeeda, or the waging of endless wars against that fabricated enemy instead of the real one, in my view has already been unequivocally adjudicated upon at Nuremberg.
While the morality of the victor is always relative, as Justice Vinson of the US Supreme Court observed for his own nation in 1951:
“Nothing is more certain in modern society than the principle that there are no absolutes, that a name, a phrases, a standard has meaning only when associated with the considerations which give birth to nomenclature. To those who would paralyze our Government in the face of impending threat by encasing it in a semantic strait-jacket, we must reply that all concepts are relative”,
and always becomes absolute while administering the victor's justice as sermonized by the US Chief Prosecutor in 1946 at Nuremberg before sending the Nazi leadership to the elaborately prepared gallows:
“If certain acts of violation of treaties are crimes, they are crimes whether the United States does them or whether Germany does them, and we are not prepared to lay down a rule of criminal conduct against others which we would not be willing to have invoked against us”,
for the vast majority of ordinary people un-attuned to the pragmatic witticism of Pakistan's distinguished Ambassador to Washington:
'“Foreign relations are not discussed in poetry, ... Saddam Husain’s last speech was also full of poetry but it could not save him or his nation”', and that 'relationships between nations are based on ground realities',
it does not change with the prevailing winds.
A courageous people must indeed face up to the “ground realities” just as the Hon. Ambassador of Pakistan boldly stated to his own audience, but unlike some pusillanimous and hectoring cowards, also apply the same standards across the board rather than rush to coddle the greatest criminals exuding the most power as “ground realities”.
The following is an excerpt from last year, September 10, 2008 to be precise, from a letter I wrote my own TAO teacher in Lahore, titled: “Happy-Happy Zardari: A monologue on Hope and Voluntary Servitude”. The fact that it was written more than a year ago, and what it pertinently references is from almost two years ago, is both its vindication and its relevance to still saving the present for a better future.
This ain't no game dear brothers and sisters, friends and respected elders. It is continually being paid for in innocent blood of that lowly 'other'. Tomorrow, it will be our own, it it isn't already.
This also ain't no matter of penning narratives in blogs, of making platitudinous speeches in town halls, of freedom of speech, of abstract rights which mean little in practice – but doing something useful about our own singular existential imperative rather than merely talk about it.
And one can't do anything unless one diagnoses and triages the now almost comatose patient correctly. But it is still breathing. Not dead yet!
I genuinely pray that intelligence men, or men of greater intelligence, military men, political men, and of course women, those of uncommon valor, are reading this. Also, that at least some among them so inebriated with the banality of evil and prostration to power, will find the inevitable chutzpah to take me to court (but not disappear me into some horrible rendition). Just like Pakistan's distinguished Ambassador used his best friend, the legal system, and filed a plentiful law suit for defamation against The Nation newspaper of Pakistan (The Nation Oct. 17, 2009, notice cached here). I however won't settle for any kangaroo court. But will be more than delighted to see anyone in the International Criminal Court of Justice.
Please watch my personal lawyer, Justice Robert H. Jackson of the US Supreme court, and the Chief Prosecuting Counsel for the United States, already having laid out my iron-clad case at Nuremberg more conclusively than any lawyer can:
But of course, that requires a Military Tribunal administering the victor's justice to bring those very conclusions about.
Short of such a victor's justice selectively administered, yes indeed the hectoring hegemons and their 'errand boys' will win in the Fourth Reich just as they did in the Third Reich in yesteryear. Anyone efficaciously challenging them, anywhere in the world, is marched to the gallows as the terrorist, disappeared, or outright shot through the head. Others are simply ignored, or afforded their Hyde Park corners to asphyxiate themselves in freespace. All that freedom of speech in vacuum is very valuable of course to generously accord to the plebeian – we now sit around typing all day or make speeches to the cheering choir rather than tearing down the totem poles constructed to rule over us. And even more egregiously, actually fighting for the right to continue doing that pleasurably sterile thing over and over again! Some of the more famous among us are in fact also getting quite rich doing it. Some others are simply enamored by their own brilliant dissent-productions and feel badly when it isn't appreciated.
Be that as it may, I humbly invite everyone, but especially the Pakistanis reading this, to refute me if I make a mistake, or to boldly join me if I appear to speak the truth in correctly concluding the answer to 2+2 =?
Let's together unmask them all by uniting on the common nemesis. Even the natural instinct for self-preservation in the lowly herd helps them correctly identify the hidden hectoring hegemon of their jungle, and they boldly unite against it under their existential imperative:
Why can't we?
As one of my favorite Urdu poets famously said: 'Mauj hai darya mein, bairoon-e-darya kuch nahin'.  That piece of poetic witticism if practiced by those now deceived, just as it is practiced by the herd in the video above, will checkmate the very “ground realities” that our man in Washington is so worried about.
Let's help him shall we? But in order to effectuate even that single verse of poetry, minimally requires knowing how to add 2 + 2 = 4 before the Rubicon is crossed, before the barbarians march in through the gates of hell bringing their “shock and awe” with them, and before one's own treasonous traitors and mercenaries do the people in. Indeed a great failing of the Iraqi people. But it was not of poetry.
