The King of America Part 2: The Antichrist


The most bizarre tales we may have had the pleasure of reading may be found in the Bible and particularly the apparent hallucinogenic inspired tales revealed in the Book of Revelations. But as far fetched as it may seem, the prophecies are coming to pass. We are living in the days of the Antichrist. What is worse, the Antichrist is not only King of America, it is King period.

We generally think of feudal societies when we think of kings or monarchs. But there is an effective king and it rules America as surely as Henry the 8th ruled England hundreds of years ago. This king that has taken on the role of our overlord is no ordinary king however. It is as phantomological as a ghost, yet it is in real terms, a person with all the legal rights as you or I. But unlike you or I, it has immense power. It has the power to rule the USA, Canada, the UK and almost all nations. It controls and moves armies and it dictates whether we work or are unemployed. It is a king that impacts all of us very directly. No king of feudal times had such power. And no king of feudal times was as ruthless.

Money

Before we fill out the character of this King of America further, we may consider some of the curious characteristics of its father; capital or, money.

Money is completely useless in direct reality; that is, in the world that beasts and children live in. Money is just paper and metal and may useful in the toilet or in a slingshot. But it has no specific purpose in direct reality. It is certainly the single most useful commodity however in the world of the abstract. It's the means to freedom in capitalist society and its absence results in no freedom whatsoever. Its absence means, in strictly socialist-less and purely capitalistic societies that we cannot access medical care, housing, or food. We need money to talk on a telephone, to transport ourselves, or to do pretty much anything. If the King has his way, all societies activities, even drinking water or eating will require money.

And yet money is a phantom born of the real and energetic work and sweat of human beings. It is more than a means to exchange value however. Money's power and ghostlike qualities emerge from the moment it takes on excess value. The moment a larger price is demanded from the previous value of something a small demon is born. The aggregate of these demons is profit and this is the driving force and power of the King of America.

It is in the interests of capitalists and capitalism to be able to charge for every and all objects and activities that human beings want and need. The past few decades witnessed an explosion in information technology. People want and some need internet access, access to cable television, and access to the information and software to use this technology. Rather than it being a matter of simply setting up a dish to pull in the signals that exist in the space around us, the state has laws that require us to pay out money to look into this dimension of reality that exists in the space around us. If we are caught accessing this dimension without paying the legitimized providers, we will be stung and called thieves. The sting will require us to pay the state a sum of money. The state protects profit and the privateers run the state.

Capitalist society is a free society as long you have the means to pay. If you can pay, you are free. If you cannot, you are not.

The King

The King of America has taken on the role of the corporation. It could have just as easily been a private company or partnerships, but it is the corporation that has grown into the ruler of the planet. Like money itself, the corporation is well removed from existing in direct reality and from humanity. It is farther removed than a company. A company may have a human face and it may make decisions based on human sentiment. The same is true with a private business partnership. But the same is not true for the corporation. A corporation is far more like a virus; the kind of virus that may attack your computer. This virus however is a virus that is attacking humanity and it is programmed to kill the natural ecosystems that we are part of. It is programmed to kill us all.

Initially, corporations were formed to serve public interests. But capitalism, being what it is, discovered that the form of 'corporation' was far more useful and efficient than the private company at generating profit. A few adjustments would have to be made and they were. The most significant adjustment was that corporations were given the same rights as persons and were granted personhood by the courts. At that point we have generated very real phantoms in our midst. Phantoms far more terrifying than anything Stephen King could invent. Phantoms hell bent on controlling and destroying all of humanity. This may sound like hyperbole but if you examine it, you will see that it isn't the slightest of an exaggeration.

As a legal person, the corporation can buy things, sell things, it can sue and be sued. But is has limited liability. It is a very real member of society and a very powerful one.

Unlike flesh and blood human beings, the corporation cannot love and it has no conscience. It will operate only on the basis of maximizing profit for its shareholders. The individual shareholders may not want to kill or harm people in the name of profit, but what they care about doesn't influence the decisions made by the corporation. Like a virus, it is programmed to do one thing and everything else is subservient to that function. It will maximize profit and will make decisions to that end, it will destroy obstacles to that end and it will seduce facilitators to that end.

This King of America has no body, no fear, no soul, no brain. It is nothing but a virus, an abstract illusion. Like money, it has no substance in reality. It is as clever as the most clever lawyers on the planet. As its guiding hand, it extracts the most cold and calculating aspects of the minds of these lawyers and through this process, its power over societies is on the way to becoming total. It will dictate the policies and laws that politicians put in place because politicians are under the rule of this all powerful king. To this end, it will use us and it will use society to clean up its own mess and to pay its costs.

The corporation will use the state as its own private gopher. It will use the state to pay for structures and programs to facilitate optimizing its own profit. It has control of the powerful and potent American state as well as other weaker colonies of America. The American State will provide aid, for instance, to smaller colonies and the aid will be used to build infrastructure such a bridges and roads to facilitate the corporate theft of the colony's natural resources.

The corporation will also force the state to fight wars to ensure a profitable and brighter future for the shareholders. At the moment, a number of oil corporations as well as weapons manufacturers have dictated to the American State demands to wage war for oil in Iraq and take control of the oil resources there. On February 26 of this year, the American controlled and corporate controlled Iraqi cabinet of Prime Minister Nouri al-Malaki has adopted a bill to ensure that American oil corporations have free reign over Iraqi oil. The draft law aims to cut out French, Russian, and Chinese oil interests. The bill restores a colonial framework known as a production-sharing agreement. This allows foreign companies to have first dibs on the oil they help the nationalized industry extract of the massive sea of oil beneath the desert sand.

This is not completely detached from human involvement. If we look at Halliburton, for instance, we see that they have their Management Oversight Committee which meets in executive sessions to evaluate the performance of the Chief Executive Officer each December. The CEO may be fired if he is not up to snuff. They examine performance in such areas as "total stockholder return" and "development and implementation of initiatives to provide long-term economic benefit to Halliburton". Their "initiatives" have taken them, Dick Cheney, and America deep into the bowels of Iraq.

That's Halliburton. There are other corporate interests that salivate at the many billions waiting for them in the Middle East. Aside from oil, there are substantial weapons sales to consider. Weapons sellers and the American State are enjoying passionate bedtime relations that are almost as incestuous as the GOP and Halliburton. Lockheed Martin is the number one defense contractor on the planet. And Lockheed Martin spends millions of dollars each year lobbying Congress. Aside from that, the American State and these mammoth corporations have a myriad of disturbing and perverse relationships.

The Anti Christ

If we look at the morality side of corporations, what we see is the opposite of good. What we see is pure and unabashed evil.

If we are so inclined, we may use Jesus as a moral compass. Jesus isn't an unusual moral compass. He cursed those that are objectively harmful to other human beings and praised those that cared for other human beings. His morality was, and is, universal and elemental.
If we examine the King of America in this light, we will see that it is a particularly malevolent virus.

As a legal person, it has no morality whatsoever. It will kill and harm human beings in the interests of profit making. The bottom line is all that matters. There is no such thing as satisfaction. The King of America must grow and its hunger is insatiable. They must put profit above the public good.

Corporations have been likened to a psychopath in book form, "The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power" by Joel Bakan and in DVD form, "The Corporation", by the same author. They have no concern for the well being of others, they have no emotional affect, they will cause death and ill health in order to make money for the shareholders, they are deceitful and they have no capacity to experience guilt or any other human emotion. Even if the individuals, the shareholders, care about the plight of humans, the decisions are out of their hands. The virus runs pretty much on its own.

The disturbing truth is that what is good for the King is bad for the rest of us and vice versa. The privatization of water, electricity, education, health care, social assistance and so on is good for the King but it is detrimental to individuals, especially the poor and people that are disabled or otherwise disadvantaged. It is good for the rich and powerful and it is bad for the poor and those of us that are vulnerable (which is pretty much all of us). It is exactly the opposite of what Jesus preached and it boldly espouses these doctrines and ideological beliefs through corporate propaganda institutions such as the Canadian Fraser Institute, The American Enterprise Institute, The Heritage Foundation and so on.

When we examine this King, it propensities and its power in the world, we may be well advised to ask ourselves what the natural extension of this could mean for us.

The prognosis is dire. If corporation 'A' contains within it some shred of humanity, some sense of elemental morality, then corporation 'B', the more efficient and cost effective organization, will simply eat corporation A. In other words, the most fit, and that means the least humane, will survive. The tendency is to make things worse because the more wealth that is accumulated in the hands of the few, the worse off the rest of us are.

There is ample evidence to deem the King of America the Anti Christ. There is also logic and intelligence that cannot be refuted. The King has embraced and it promotes neo liberal and neo conservative ideology and it will kill and make war in order to feed shareholders.

The Anti Christ is most potent force on the planet but, at the end of the day, it is nothing more than a virus. A sociological and economic virus eating its way through societies. It operates in ways not much different than a computer virus. It is ethereal and it does not exist in direct reality. But then, neither does money.

We are in a bit of a mess.
