The central reality of the early 21st Century is the total certainty of imminent, massive, deep-rooted change in every sphere of reality that is meaningful to the human race. This change will not be long in arriving, not at all -- indeed, we are already being buffeted by the first, outlying squalls of the rapidly approaching level-five hurricane that will soon be upon us with the full force of its fury.
The imperial warmongering of the Bush administration represents an attempt by a certain faction of the self-anointed, so-called global 'elite' to use the American military juggernaut as a violent tool to stage manage the oncoming apocalypse. (About which, more below.) Their objective is to try to control a series of large, upcoming, epochal events that are essentially uncontrollable and unmanageable. But this will not deter those who fancy themselves to be humanity's 'superiors'. They will soldier on, literally, with their aircraft carrier battle groups, their nuclear missiles, their stealth bombers, their genetically engineered viruses, and their rampaging armies equipped with night vision goggles, GPS-coordinated weaponry, drunk on self-induced illusions of patriotism, nationalism, blood, guts and gore.
It is a nightmarish vision they have and they want to impose it on the rest of the planet by brute force. Indeed, they have already begun to do this. If you are an Iraqi who has been disemboweled or decapitated by a cluster bomb that came whistling in from an American Air Force B-52 cruising overhead at 40,000 feet -- then the apocalypse has already arrived for you. And in this case, the apocalypse is stamped 'Made in America'.
One of the great ironies is that the American regime that is making such a forthright, violent bid for planet-wide domination is controlled by the right wing of the Republican Party. The same people who for decades have been pontificating about smaller and less intrusive government and lower taxes (right-wing Republicans), have over the past couple of years revealed themselves to be essentially a home-grown American, neo-fascist political faction, heavy on reflexive, knee-jerk flag waving and patriotic sloganeering, ugly suppression and violation of civil liberties at home, all coupled with aggressive, illegal, imperial warfare in the international arena. Since seizing political power in the fraudulent national elections of the year 2000, these Republican neo-fascists have effectively unleashed the Pentagon as an instrument of international terror, eviscerated the American Constitution, created an anti-civil liberties Frankenstein monster in the form of the new, sprawling bureaucracy of the Department of Homeland Security, and dramatically increased federal spending, driving the American government trillions of dollars into debt. And all in just two years. The fact that the majority of Democrat political figures have cravenly acquiesced in these activities and worse, even vigorously supported them, prove the Democrats to be nothing more than a cowardly Junior Varsity annex to the right wing of the Republican Party. I cannot imagine why a sane American would even consider voting for a Republican or Democrat, for any office, at any level of government -- or even vote at all in the current climate, given the abundantly self-evident fraudulent nature of contemporary American electoral politics.
This current effort to impose a violent, totalitarian regime on the United States and selected other parts of the world is just the first stage in a rapidly developing program to subjugate the entire planet in a violent, iron grip.
