‘YouTubing’ is the habitation of a fantasy world made real in images upon a screen. This is exactly the ‘inverted’ world of religion writ large as described by Feuerbach, Marx, Engels and Lenin, etc! In theory, any image, regardless of its positive, negative or neutral construction value, can be made to seem ‘as if it exists’ upon the screen and stimulate the imaginations of all and sundry that happen to allow these images to pass in front of the eye and ear – thus ‘traversing’ the surface of the mind! Whereas the film industry is a tangible profession involving ‘real’ training, qualifications and jobs that guarantee genuine ‘labour’ in the material world – ‘YouTubing’ places this ‘dream-making’ process firmly into the hands of the uneducated and immature masses – telling them that this is ‘reality’ and that no other interpretation exists! The way the entertainment world used to exist (pre-internet) – ensured that ordinary human-beings all inhabited the drab and mundane ‘material’ world and tried our best to traverse its realities and injustices – BEFORE they were able (or allowed) to subject themselves to the ‘inverted’ world of ‘escapism’ and the 90 minutes £5 allotted to get away (just for a moment) from the reality of capitalist existence! All a child has to do now is wake-up and switch-on which ever device happens to be within reach and the ‘inverted’ world of YouTube beckons!

Everyone’s a Warrior – or Should Be… (21.11.2022)
Until the return fire comes in! Then material reality comes a knocking. I have always said that the link between the socio-economic system of predatory capitalism – and mental illness – remains essentially untapped and more or less completely unexplored either medically or academically. This is because the powers that be, that is the democratically elected (liberal) governments (and the elites that sustain such entities) – do not want this association known. If it were properly understood that the routine exploitation of the minds and bodies of the individual components that comprise the masses leads to a dysfunction in a significant section of that population – then the intelligentsia might start writing articles calling for its abolition and replacement. This is a slippery slope that the US government (and its European lackeys) certainly does not want the world to know or even consider. Instead, a game of so-called ‘calculated’ risk is played-out which sees the majority of brainwashed individuals retaining all the psychological and emotional damage within themselves (as a seething mess of contradictions and self-hate) – whilst limiting their actions to merely following lawful impulses. Racially hating everything ‘Chinese’ for example, is perfectly fine providing that race ‘hate’ is manifested through the acceptable mechanisms that define polite society!
Remembering ‘Mei Leung’ (梁美) – the First ‘Chinese’ Victim of Richard Ramirez! (15.9.2022)
As the US government advisors had declared the Vietnamese people to be ‘sub-human’ – in their warped logic and deficient reasoning – the Vietnamese people as a nation (‘North’ or ‘South’ as it happened) were not legally (or ‘lawfully’) covered by any ‘Human Rights’ legislation! This allowed US soldiers to commit ‘War Crimes’ and ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ and be ‘immune’ from prosecution. Green Berets – like ‘Miguel “Mike” Ramirez’ – were trained to be particularly ‘brutal’ in war already known for its ‘callous’ nature! The systematic ‘kidnapping’, ‘torturing’, ‘raping’, ‘maiming’ and ‘murdering’ of Vietnamese young children (5-10 years old) – including boys and girls – was a paedophilic tactic used by the US Green Berets to ‘terrorise’ the village populations into NOT supporting the local Viet Cong Units or follow any orders emanating from the Hanoi Headquarters of Ho Chi Minh himself! As this criminal behaviour was considered an anti-Communist ‘Social Experiment’ – the Green Berets were ordered to film, photograph and records certain ‘typical’ incidents of this type of ‘mass’ raping, so that US Officials in Washington could assess the ‘effectiveness’ of this type of ‘Psychological’ and ‘Physical’ Warfare!
