“Was hindert die Menschen daran, ihre Unterdrueckung zu erkenen und sich davon frei zu machen? Aeussere Maechte ( Gesetze, Sanktionen, Wirtschaftliche Not. etc) und Innere Maechte. Die inneren Maechte, die sie daran hindern, heissen: Sexualmoral und religioeser Mystizismus.” W.R. “Die Sexuelle Revolution” 1966
” What obstructs the people from knowing their suppression and freeing themselves from it? The outer controls ( Laws, Sanctions, Economic emergencies, etc.) and inner controls. The inner controls, that obstruct knowing are called: sexual morality and religious mysticism” W. Reich, ” The Sexual Revolution” 1966
Replace sexual morality and mysticism with the disembodied supermarket fetishist’s Catalogue/Bible and you may arrive at understanding the launching point of these 2008 May days, which can only scarcely be found, and yet are everywhere … at critical half mast. We can count the dead in the parades.
On another note, we’ve still been exhuming the legacy of Arthur C. Clarke, Techno hive-mind fascist, the sci-fi Darwinian Final Solutionist, brother of Singularity Inc., and New World Overmind Order ?? Does Childhood’s End resemble Christian eschatology ?? Do the Overlords fly by in stealth bombers ?? Do they communicate in military code above in the Clarke Orbit ?? Could it be that the only thing that makes 2001 interesting to an XL Terrestrial is Kubrik’s poetic humanism taking apart Whitey-On-The-Moon-dreams and exploring astronaut Bowman’s transpersonal journey ??
And while you might be scratching your head thinking these are Sci-Fi tales, an extreme shift occurs when you become an advisor to the Military Entertainment Complex! As Richard Barbrook describes in his ImaginaryFutures.net, on the Cold War path, the agenda becomes planning the future… to own the future.”

You gotta make way for the Homo Superior" ]
And in case you were wondering where we might have landed Now: It looks as though the children have always been quarantined, and the rock n roll brand of revolution now plays in heavy rotation on auto-pilot as soundtrack for the End Game.
