The Arc of The Moral Universe

As Martin Luther King Jr. famously said: “We shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.” Thus, the crux of all this argumentation and verbosity and writing is the suggestion or reality that historical wrongs have to be corrected someway and somehow as human history and time assume their natural course. As some have said, the universe has a way of correcting all wrongs.

And the crusader, puritanical, and genocidal tendencies which are at the heart of the world’s core dilemmas and problems and were mentioned in the previous blog post do not come from conjecture or my personal opinion. Rather, these tendencies are corroborated and come straight from the horse’s mouth. As George W. Bush said at the beginning of the 21st century: “”This crusade…is going to take a while.”

What countervails and curtails visceral disapproval and disdain towards such actions and rhetoric stemming from a crusader and genocidal mentality which was first demonstrated towards Native Americans and then moved to the Middle East and Afghanistan is a chain or sequence of interlocking circumstances. It all begins with Rothschild share-holding in the Federal Reserve which began in the early 1900’s, and in turn the Federal Reserve prints the U.S. dollar. And the U.S. dollar is the world’s reserve currency, which means that transactions between different countries and states have to occur through the dollar.

Thus, the dollar – which amounts to a piece of paper that brings more angst and misfortune than good – countervails reality and truth. As the Buddhists have said, two things are never at rest: money and the devil. But for how long a piece of paper that is too dirty to touch and brings more angst and misfortune than good remains to be seen. Many people turn a blind eye to many political and social realities and truths because of a piece of paper which brings misfortunes and problems simply by touching it.

And out of Washington, the crusader-puritanical-genocidal tendencies which originate from the time Native Americans had to resign to their unfortunate fate are combined with the threat of the dollar to form the basic essence of American foreign policy and the basic essence of Washington’s approach towards the rest of the world. And the threat of the dollar is intertwined with the threat of antisemitism because of Rothschild share-holding, even though many of us are not antisemitic. Threats of antisemitism would ring hollow if these threats were not intertwined with the threat of the dollar.

But just within the past year or so, a piece of paper that brings misfortune just by touching it could not countervail political and social realities in places like Myanmar and Afghanistan, and now these political and social realities are in a standoff with a piece of paper in Ukraine. Jews comprise of only about 0.4 or 0.5 percent of Ukraine’s population of 44 million people. But Ukraine’s president is Jewish, and in turn half of his cabinet is Jewish. Thus, the disproportionate outrage and outcry over Ukraine in America’s mainstream media versus the utter silence over Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Palestine. And as they say: “Silence is violence.”

And reality is becoming ever harder to deny, even with Israelis who are now in a political and social context defined to a large extent by negative migration because of American foreign policy. Ari Shavit, an Israeli journalist, wrote: “Israel is drawing its last breath…We may have passed the point of no return, and it is no longer possible to end the occupation, stop colony [construction] and achieve peace and it is no longer possible to reform Zionism, save democracy and divide the country. If that is the case, then it is a must to leave the country.”

Israeli journalist Gedion Levy said: “No one can stop the process of Israeli internal self-destruction. The cancerous disease Israel is experiencing has reached its final stages and can be treated neither with walls nor iron domes, nor even with nuclear bombs.” Why Washington denies these arguments can perhaps be explained only by some of the factors which were mentioned in previous blog posts.
