The Great Satan

In sum, Washington’s policy of global hegemony which consisted of stoking wars in order to destroy countries, propping up corrupt governments in order to weaken societies, cruel and egregious sanctions, and the censorship and suppression of information – as well as the neocon money train which was put into motion beginning in 2001 – are now essentially bankrupt and broke. These things need to be repeated over and over again in the manner by which America’s mainstream repeats things over and over again, even if it becomes tiresome and repetitive to some people.

But the bankruptcy, brokenness, and hollowness of such a policy – which in turn was a severe violation of international law – is concealed and veiled by toxic rhetoric as well as the threat of sanctions which many people are now largely numb to because of the sheer cruelty and injustice of such actions. Those folks such as Afghanistan and Syria and Kurds and Libya and Aung San Suu Kyi and Ukraine and others who jumped onto what is now a broken neocon money train have fallen off and are left hanging high and dry. Washington has proven to be the ‘Great Satan’ which misled and misinformed millions of people by concealing a corrupt and broken neocon money train with talk of virtue and values. Thus, many people fell for a Ponzi scheme of monumental proportions. And now, the whole thing has manifested itself into what it really is, namely, a bankrupt and broke Ponzi scheme and a broken and bankrupt neocon money train which has left nothing but destruction and desolation in its tracks.

Fortunately for myself, going into an individuation process shortly after getting my Master’s degree in August 2013 protected me and shielded me and kept me immune from entrapment and entanglement into what is now a bankrupt and broke neocon money train and Ponzi scheme which has left nothing but destruction and desolation in its tracks. But many people from the immigrant community in the United States fell for the whole thing, and even so-called educated and sophisticated and fluent English-speaking people like Ashraf Ghani and Aung San Suu Kyi played into the whole Ponzi scheme and broken neocon money train.

Now, the question is, what will fill the ontological void left by the destruction and desolation stemming from a broken and bankrupt neocon money train and Ponzi scheme which in turn misled and misinformed millions of people? Are accountability and justice in the cards? Is Paul Wolfowitz above Bernie Madoff in terms of accountability and justice under the law? These are questions which people like Merrick Garland and others will have to sort out, because these questions are intertwined with the very existence and stability of the global order. The broken and bankrupt neocon money train and the neocon Ponzi scheme not only had foreign policy implications and consequences for global order and stability, but it also had domestic implications which in turn prompted Merrick Garland and others to shove their way into becoming Attorney General and to assume government roles through an election process which many people no longer believe to be credible and legitimate.

In sum, accountability and justice will have to be delivered one way or another, no matter how long it takes. Deborah Ellis, an Assistant Dean at New York University’s School of Law, wrote:  

“Martin Luther King, Jr., reminded us that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” Change takes a long time, but it does happen. We have seen change recently with the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in the military, health care reform, and the creation of the Consumer Protection Financial Bureau. Sometimes change occurs through individual advocacy, sometimes through policy reform, sometimes through a lawsuit.  Each of us who works for social change is part of the mosaic of all who work for justice; together we can accomplish multitudes.”
