Listen to a reading of this article:

I can’t stop laughing at the fact that we have a King now. “Hello I am the actual, literal King. Please bow to me and put a crown on my head.”

It gets funnier and funnier the more you think about it. Having a queen was really stupid; having a king is too stupid. People aren’t going to buy it, I don’t care how good your PR is.

Just stop having a royal family; it’s so dorky. This isn’t Lord of the Rings. They’re like fantasy LARPers running around with swords and scepters and crowns and junk, except fantasy LARP props aren’t normally encrusted with priceless jewels stolen from colonized territories.

For Americans who are having a hard time understanding what their friends across the pond are going through, imagine if Chicken McNuggets died.

Or anything else you’ve had since you were a child that you know isn’t good for you but it gives you a sense of comfort that you don’t really understand and can’t really control so you’re not ready to give it up just yet.

British media are even more servile and sycophantic than American or Australian media, which is truly an impressive feat:

 

It’s so crazy how many people I’m seeing getting outraged at criticisms of the queen. Imagine being such a bootlicking cuck that you spend your time running around the internet yelling at people who say disparaging things about a dead imperialist asshole.

Step 1: Set up systems that make the world’s populations dependent on global trade.

Step 2: Work toward shoring up control over those systems so that you decide who gets to trade and who doesn’t.

Step 3: Dominate the entire human species using weaponized starvation.

The US empire continually works to strengthen its stranglehold over global economic and financial systems so that it can starve disobedient populations anywhere in the world without firing a shot. Once you get this, you get why the empire sees a multipolar world as such a threat.

If the US empire doesn’t have wildly disproportionate influence over whether earth’s populations can make and use money, those populations suddenly have no need to obey the dictates of Washington. Unilateral sanctions are meaningless if everyone can just ignore them. So there’s literally an entire planet’s worth of power at stake here when we’re talking about the empire’s “great power competition” with Beijing and Moscow, because what that slogan really means is preventing the rise of a true multipolar world where power isn’t as centralized.

And this is the single most urgent threat facing the human species today: a nuclear-armed empire struggling to secure planetary domination at any cost. A floundering unipolarist empire with nuclear weapons is dangerous in the same way a cornered animal with sharp fangsis dangerous. Except there’s a whole lot more at stake.

Americans: drinkable water please

US government: Sorry did you say send billions of dollars worth of weapons to Ukraine and Taiwan?

Americans: no, drinkable water

US government: Alright, you drive a hard bargain but here’s billions of dollars of weapons for Ukraine and Taiwan.

I feel like we don’t talk enough about the fact that a 2019 study commissioned by the US Army found that the US could advance its geostrategic interests in Eurasia by baiting Russia into overextending itself in conflicts with US proxies in Ukraine and elsewhere.

Our rulers are drawing us ever closer to nuclear war while our ecosystem hurtles toward collapse and the imperial narrative managers have everyone arguing about whether the world’s biggest problem is Donald Trump or drag queens.

I’ve been having people online tell me with absolute certainty that Russia is right on the verge of retreat from Ukraine any minute now. The longer I do this, the more I see echo chambers as the uncrowned kings of online information. Getting info over those echo chamber walls is the real work.

If you’re really interested in getting dissident ideas and information circulating, the more creative ways you can come up with to get them over your echo chamber walls and into the populations that don’t normally hear them the better. Otherwise we’re just preaching to the choir.

  1. Nothing more than this need be said about feudal relics dropping dead:

    1. Excellent work,. I like your work since I currently make over $46K a month by only engaging in legitimate online activity! I am aware that you are now earning a significant sum of cd05 money online with just $38K these are simple operational tasks.

  2. What follows is the last paragraph of a long essay about assension to the throne
    “Elizabeth II, perhaps too involved in the propaganda of Big Pharma vaccines, controlled by the same shareholders, mostly Zionists, of the Weapons Lobby that through the New World Order, in the United Kingdom as in the whole Anglo-Saxon world, represent the true Sovereign. Not even too hidden now.”

  3. What I think is hilarious is 30 odd years ago the queen made charles spurn camilla and enter a loveless marraige with diana. Now camilla is on the throne with charles. Stuff like this is too funny to make up.

  4. RE: Kings and Queens, western imperialism, violent colonization, plundering of resources, hegemony, genocide…
    Here is another fine example of the western world’s propensity for forced imperialism, mass-enslavement, rapacious plundering and slaughtering (also see: Iberian World Order, Dutch VOC, British World Order, and Pax Americana):
    King Leopold II and the Congo (encyclopedia.com-2019)
    Excerpt: The European colonization of Africa was one of the greatest and swiftest conquests in human history. In 1870 roughly 80 percent of Africa south of the Sahara Desert was governed by indigenous kings, chiefs, and other rulers. By 1910 nearly this entire huge expanse had become European colonies or land, like South Africa, controlled by white settlers. The bloodiest single episode in Africa’s colonization took place in the center of the continent in the large territory, known as the Congo.
    Excerpt: Equipped with repeating rifles, cannons, and machine guns and fighting against Africans with only spears or antiquated muskets, King Leopold’s 19,000-man army (black conscripts under white officers) gradually took control of the vast territory. From the start the regime was founded on forced labor. Hundreds of thousands of Africans were put to work as porters to carry the white men’s goods, as cutters of the wood needed to fire steamboat boilers, and as laborers of all kinds.
    Excerpt: In articles in church magazines and in speeches throughout the United States and Europe on visits home, they described what they saw: Africans whipped to death, rivers full of corpses, and piles of severed hands—a detail that quickly seared itself on the world’s imagination. Army officers often demanded of their men a severed hand from each rebel killed in battle.
    You won’t hear or see stories such as this in the American propagandized media (owned by a small cabal/cartel) that suppresses information necessary for informed decision making (they attempt to keep us stupefied and divided). The information they approve for release is predicated on pretense for agenda maintenance.
    Thank you, Caitlin, et al…

  5. The US coup in Ukraine installed a false head of state.

    Ukraine has been converted from a nation into a mercenary foreign army with the supply of US money and weapons.

    Since the US draft has ended, domestic recruitment for military has not been adequate to sustain US foreign adventurism.

    It’s great to be able to hire mercenary states to bleed competitor states without having to face domestic antiwar street protests and draft resistance. Ukraine bleeds its blood for the US but can’t vote against the people who hired them.

    PBS broadcasted the “The Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra concludes its tour with a performance at the Kennedy Center” last night.

    Americans are so cute and naive.

    They think they are supporting the Ukrainian people from an “Unprovoked Invasion”

    It must be an “Unprovoked Invasion” because even the “left” Public Broadcasting System beats down into silence any discussion that doesn’t use that full descriptor.

    Americans are dog brains, as incapable of understanding the masters mind as were Hitler’s German Shepherds.

  6. I am presently creating a minimum of an additional 37,000usd per month from work by doing terribly honest and no-fuss on-line housekeeping jobs. ~WQ%240} kind of media relating to coaching courses
    on a particular web site …….. http://goforcash24.blogspot.com/

    1. Well actually, I’ve clicked on the link… Just joking :o) April fool practice…

  7. Stupidity is the same as evil if you judge by the results.

    Margaret Atwood

  8. England is still very class based, but not in a Marxian way. PBS still trots out period piece lords and servants programs. Monarchs started out as badass killers, but now are about the same as oligarchs like Elon Musk and Bill Gates, but with fancy old stuff like the Vatican. I’d like to read more about the creativity to spread dissident memes outside of echo chambers. That’s much more interesting than dead queens. Labelling inhibits spread. The musician, James McMurtry, wrote one social commentary song ‘we can’t make it here anymore’ and was labelled a political songwriter, like a warning label against good times. Then there was ‘motorist’ Rodney King, rather than got his ass kicked by the cops RK. Collectivism is a hard sell anyway in an egoist species, Trump and drag queens are more fun. Trump in drag would would solve our lack of monarchy problem.

    1. I played James McMurtry’s song for an asshole who called himself a Revolutionary Marxist. He was so stupid or evil that he couldn’t see its relevance to his stated political orientation.

      Just another brain dead American.

  9. Biden 9/11 statement about the ‘terrorist threat’ behind the attacks continues to menace the country, the US president warned. The “terrorist threat” behind the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people (the US already slaughtered more than 2 millions of Afghans, 6 millions of Iraqis, 1 million of Yemenis, 1 million of Syrians) “continues,” Biden wrote in a Thursday memo published in the Federal Register, adding that the “powers and authorities adopted to deal with” the attacks “must continue in effect beyond September 14, 2022.”
    It will never end because the source of all evil is made by the US military-political-economic terrorist policies worldwide to keep control over the world. The WTC was an inside job made by the US itself. No one does happily something evil like this like the US empire.

  10. The concept of “queen” is simply one of many mass delusions.

    It is a “truth of the mob”.

    The fact that a “truth of the mob” is false does not negate the possibility of this false/truth having consequences.

    People need these false “truths” in order to breath without being conspicuous. Solitary shouting and breathing within an otherwise silent crowd would break with social conformity.

    Charisma is the ability to inspire enthusiasm. Inspiration is common with respiration.

    Enthusiasm is to be possessed of gods or demons.

    1. Sorry… only God, not demons:
      The word enthusiasm originates from the Greek ἐνθουσιασμός from ἐν (en, “in”), θεός (theós, “god”) and οὐσία (ousía, “essence”), meaning “inspired by a god’s essence”.
      Besides, even if enthusiasm had meant possessed by demons, the word demon, or daimon, in ancient Greek had a different meaning:
      Daimon or Daemon (Ancient Greek: δαίμων, “god”, “godlike”, “power”, “fate”) originally referred to a lesser deity or guiding spirit such as the daimons of ancient Greek religion and mythology and of later Hellenistic religion and philosophy.
      The ills released by Pandora are deadly deities, keres, not daimones. According to Hesiod, the people of the Golden Age were transformed into daimones by the will of Zeus, to serve mortals benevolently as their guardian spirits.
      It’s in that sense that Socrates said that he followed his daimon.

      1. The greatest most murderous demons of today all present as gods.

        Just because someone claims to be a god doesn’t mean I believe the son of a bitch.

        1. No, the son of a bitch is a dog. which is why there was this rhetoric in the hippie sphere – preferably high on mescaline – about God being dog spelt backward and so there you are… Pass the chillum :o)

  11. Humans will not and cannot get\stay angry…and power knows it. Power gives us monarchs\MLK\Ghandi and all the be kind messaging befitting of the domesticated human herd animals we are. They know what we want better than we know ourselves and they feed it to us in a million different ways…but we don’t get to pick Malcom X or Black Panthers, etc…that’s not on the menu.

    Picture if you will a beautiful antebellum plantation with the most benevolent owners, the work is fair enough and life is so much better\easier…but you were taken against your will and cannot leave. Maybe 1 in 100 will be able to hold onto the rage while still functioning…and wait for an opportunity to exact retribution. Humanity is being rolled up…can’t say the vast majority don’t deserve it.

    My wife is such a kind person…she bends herself into contortions to avoid conflict…always making herself smaller in order to fit into ever shrinking spaces. I try to get her to give me a scenario where she would get angry enough to stand her righteous ground…to her family, school administration, etc…she can’t.

    I have come to realize kindness quickly blends into weakness and that when humans use the word kindness it is usually just a smokescreen for their weakness.

    Regretfully, I can only see the world through my own brain and everyone who supposedly loves\loved me offered me no help in trying to figure out how the world really works. Like most of us here…it’s a lonely journey, but wouldn’t have it any other way. So thankful for the fellow critical thinkers and truth seekers…past, present, and future…save yourself the aggravation and give up on the rest of the humans…can’t change\won’t change…still so much beauty…if you ignore the vast majority of humans.

    1. 1/ “I thought how I hate any kind of mob – I hate mobs of sports fans, mobs of environmental demonstrators, I even hate mobs of super-models, that’s how much I hate mobs. I tell you, mankind is bearable only when you get him on his own.”
      ― Steve Toltz, A Fraction of the Whole
      2/ “You can’t fight hatred with hatred and expect anyone to listen to you. You can only try to lessen it with humor, wit, truth and common sense. If that doesn’t work run like hell, while they throw rocks at you.”
      ― Shannon L. Alder

  12. Obviously, the queen was murdered just so that we’d take our minds off of the fact that they’re all a bunch of Nazis.
    https://www.veteranstoday.com/2022/09/09/why-was-it-important-for-biden-to-start-war-in-ukraine/

  13. I can’t read about the new English king without thinking about the scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail-
    “Who are you?”
    “I am your king!”
    “How did you become king?”
    … and so on, culminating in a political soliloquy with more insight than an entire polysci course.

    John Pilger thinks you’re “An inspirational samizdat”, which he clearly thinks is good, whatever it is exactly-
    https://consortiumnews.com/2022/09/07/john-pilger-silencing-the-lambs-how-propaganda-works/

    1. Samizdat (Russian: самиздат, lit. ’self-publishing’) was a form of dissident activity across the Eastern Bloc in which individuals reproduced censored and underground makeshift publications, often by hand, and passed the documents from reader to reader.

      1. Actually kind of preferred the air of mystery but thanks.

  14. South America people despises the British for what they did in colonial times. Africa despises the British. Asia despises the British. Only local elites favored by them and America worship the divine deceased queen and the new king. A global French revolution to hang all European kings and queens would be more than celebrated worldwide for those who afford their lifestyle coming from theft and terrorism disguised as democracy and western values.

    1. Guillotine is the preferred option, it’s 100% reusable and the blade doesn’t even need sharpening, anybody that’s ever used a machete will confirm this.
      In fact a blunt blade might be better, gives the executionee a fraction of a second to reflect on their millennia-long misdeeds before lights out. Not that I’m vindictive or anything, just reflecting on the blood and treasure these ghastly parasites have extracted from their worldwide serfs over the centuries.
      (Tugs forelock, bends knee, exits grovelling.)

      1. Nah… clear plastic bag over the head. Provides for those moments of reflection while providing an outlook.

  15. A Monarchy is a travesty…..eliminate them all now!!!!!
    And then there’s Brian Berletic supporting and supported by murderous Military Dictatorships in Thailand and Myanmar……do your homework when supporting his efforts!

  16. A royal family is just elevating thuggery to the highest levels of government. Every monarch in history got there by stealing from his fellow man and woman. And every royal “individual” claims to exercise the power of God to do their dirty deeds.

    So I feel zero loss that the former empire of “Great” Britain is transitioning from Queen Elizabeth 2 to the doltish Charles 3. Granted: There will be a loss of IQ points in that transition, but who really cares?

    As for that US Army “intelligence” from 2019: It’s just a rehash of the same idea they had in the 1980’s when they lured the Soviet Union into Afghanistan. Apparently, those Soviets didn’t get the memo: Afghanistan is where empires go to die.

    And even the US missed out on the memo.

  17. Of course everybody has noticed that we’ve lost Gloria who’s been offering us incredible deals for days, allowing us to make thousands of dollars for practically no work input.

    And everybody has noticed that this happened the very day Elizabeth Thesecond passed away.

    I wonder if that’s a coincidence or if Old Liz was moonlighting as a troll to make ends meet after giving Randy Andy pocket money to cover his expenses in the Epstein imbroglio.

    Anyway we’re gonna miss her, I tell you that, because Bonnie King Charlie is vocally in lockstep with the bankers’ WEF, the Great Reset, the WWF (World Wide Fascism) and the Net Zero – as long as he can use his royal yachts and planes to go and preach unforgettable stuff to the deplorables, the anti-vaxxers, the truckers and the farmers who don’t want to vacate their lands so that the banks can buy them cheap and lease them to folks growing bugs for Gates.

    I’m not a monarchist by any stretch of the imagination but I can’t help notice there’s a couple of elements missing in the anti-monarchy current analyses.

    Number one: when a person dies – even an enemy -, it is generally considered fair play to pay respects. This is beyond social considerations, at the soul level. It involves the Great Spirit and is an occasion to meditate on the transience of beings, on one’s own programmed death and to question whether we’re doing the best we can to honour the life we’ve been given.

    Number two: there’s an awful lot of people who love figures that transcend human condition in one way or another. I’ve never been a fan of Elvis or the worshipper kind but even I rented a car once in Nashville to go and visit Graceland, some six hours’ drive there and back in the same day.

    I even went once to Buckingham Palace, in my first visit to London, to watch the changing of the guard and you should see people flock there! Working class essentially – the laptop class worships more in the City where they can talk in pounds and evaluate how much those visitors will leave to the tourism industry. Simple people with simple emotions, like a tear rolling down their cheek or an ethereal smile. I know it’s dumb but it always moves me. They obviously feel good and in a loving mood in a Woodstock kind of way. And it’s not only for kings and queens. When I visited Lenin’s mausoleum in Moscow, people were queuing for hundreds of yards in Red Square to access the chamber. Simple folks there too, babushkas in black, grandpas with their shapkas in their hands… And it was after the Soviet Union had folded. They still flocked in droves. Same in Hanoi for Ho-Chi-Minh.

    They also tend to visit castles (even of the worst bastards that ever lived) over charitable foundations in modern skyscrapers.

    I guess they feel kind of anointed somehow by the immortality of those mortals. In communion with the beyond… Whiffs of opium maybe?

    1. remember the death of thatcher? ‘the witch is dead’ in the charts? that was nice, imo.

      1. She’d had dementia for ten years though. A bit of forgiveness and kind-heartedness never hurts – even though it’s not the left’s strong point because, as Aldous Huxley pointed out, “the surest way to work up a crusade in favor of some good cause is to promise people they will have a chance of maltreating someone. To be able to destroy with good conscience, to be able to behave badly and call your bad behavior ‘righteous indignation’ — this is the height of psychological luxury, the most delicious of moral treats.”.

        1. well, she’s dead. i can’t see how she’s being maltreated, unless those that are still alive have a problem with the idea that they’ll get judged when they’re gone. i save my compassion for those that actually showed some reciprocity in this. in catch 22 yossarian is offered the deal that they’ll help him out if he just agrees to tell the public how a great job cathcart et al are doing. somehow this still matters to them. i wouldn’t grant it to them.

          1. Turns out antivaxxers don’t really have a problem with rules or authority figures. They just hate libruls.

      1. @John Knox: “Antivaxxer”… That’s a new political category I suppose… And what is it exactly? People who are against vaccines in general or specifically against the experimental Covid one that hasn’t been properly tested because of Trump’s foolish “warp speed”, that doesn’t stop transmission and is a kind of Russian roulette with 40% more young people dropping dead since the beginning of vaccination according to insurance companies. Vaccinated. None of what Marx called the watchdogs of capitalism will ask why. Why? Or is it just a meaningless smear like fascist, white supremacist, Trump supporter to brand people out of decent society? Some kind of voodoo incantation? The process sounds pretty perverse to me anyway…

          1. Icing on the cake #2 about your “librul” friends:

  18. It is simply impossible, here in the UK, to even start – let alone follow through in an adult way – the kind of conversation that’s required about the monarchy. I thnk there are two principle reasons for this. The first is that, given that the job of monarch exists, almost everyone (including ardent republicans) agrees that Elizabeth did it well. Safe pair of hands. She was respected as a person. Part of the (quite genuine) grief being felt over here has to do with the sense that we’ve lost a good ‘un. Another part is that no-one under 74 can remember any other head of state. “End of an era” might be a cliche but it feels true at this time: a sense of trembling in the foundations.

    Charles is a more complex package who will never occupy the same place in the nation’s affections. If he is beng well advised he will, ahead of his coronation, encourage wide-ranging discussion about the kind of monarchy we need (not, sadly, whether we need one at all: that won’t happen). We might and hopefully will finish up with something less fancy and weighed down with titles and meaningless ceremony: it would be nice to lose the nonsense of the “established Church”, but a phrase in Charles’ address to the nation signalled that’s not going to happen either.

    There’s another reason why Brits aren’t keen to ditch the monarchy. We will always need a head of state, which suggests a President. So, we look around for models of Presidency that we might adopt and are not always terribly impressed. We look at America and say to ourselves: if that’s where having Presidents gets you, we’ll stick to kings and queens, thank you very much. So, dear Americans, if Britain’s monarchy carries on for another generation or two, it’s partly your fault for not showing us a better way!!!

    1. Lol… fair points. Though America exists because some rich white guys thought they could do better. And France helped.
      .
      As an American who pays very little attention to monarchies or Kardashians, I was under the impression they are about the same. People see them on TV all the time, and they can’t help gawking at what the fancy people are up to. So, maybe we did show you a better way – demote the monarchy to a reality TV family.
      .
      Though you said you’d need a president… I was under the impression a prime minister is what you have instead of a president. I thought the monarchy just does ceremonial stuff. Like the vice-president.
      .
      By the way, I heard Russell Brand’s video on the monarchy, and I am trying to not antagonize people who may be having strong feelings. Maybe they need to process what seems like a major transition to a more mature relationship with crowns. I can’t think of anything constructive to contribute.

  19. I’m just glad she didn’t die on 9/11. We’d hate to have to compete with anyone for unearned global sympathy.

  20. Wake me up when the American Empire and it’s rotating Kings and other hangers-on have been sent to the dust bin. One old biddy in a crown doesn’t even compete against decades of evil “democratic” warmongering bastards.

  23. Are you traveling in splendor? Well, you don’t know what you are missing! Take a short tour and see how your tax dollars (or British Pounds) are at work!
    When you open your dictionary to find “ostentatious,” adjacent to the text you should find an illustration of a royal carriage. Pay particular attention to the spacious size of the carriages; this carefully designed feature accommodates bullshit maximization. I know…you want one. Well, operators are standing by, and supplies are limited! Please be patient, your call is important to us.

  24. The Monarchy is another imperialist extortion at the expense of the working-class. That’s right, the working-class is taxed to finance its own oppression. Sound familiar?
    $100 million: Maintaining the royal family (countercurrents.org-11/3/21-by countercurrents collective):
    Excerpt: “The monarchy is expensive, very expensive. Of course, it would not matter if it were free – the cost to our democracy would still be too high – but when the palace tells you it’s “value-for-money”, do not believe them. We could get much better for far less.
    Excerpt: “The huge waste and extravagance of the monarchy is a symptom of the main problem: the palace is totally unaccountable and is able to operate with a far greater degree of secrecy than any other part of the state. It also clearly has considerably lobbying clout within government, which explains why the government has not cracked down on royal spending.”
    Excerpt: “The monarchy has never been funded like other public bodies, which are usually set on annual budget based on what they actually need to spend.
    Excerpt: “When all this hidden expenditure is included, the real cost of the monarchy to British taxpayers is likely to be around £345m annually.”

    NEW DELHI: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave an extraordinary two-hour interview to Oprah Winfrey where they accused the Royal Family of racial hostility and animosity (indiatimes.com-3/10/2-The growing cost of the royal family to UK taxpayers)

    Has the British Monarchy reached its expiration date?

    1. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should open a school to give classes in decency. Suggested title: how to have your cake and eat it too :o)

      1. Along with your suggested curriculum of “decency,” the “Duke and Duchess of Sussex” could also offer “etiquette” to complete the course work. Perhaps after class, they could reveal, to their loyal subjects, the many ways their specially bestowed title benefits them? During the revelation we could enjoy the cake and eat it (all of it.) Say…at matriculation-completion (and of course upon PAYING ALL THE REQUIRED FEES and satisfying the necessary educational credits) could one expect to ascend to…” Royal Highness?” Hell, this might surpass shrooms!

  26. How does calling the departed queen an asshole help to get Caitlin’s message over echo chamber walls, rather than reinforce them?

    1. i guess it makes people aware they are in an echo chamber and that there are walls.

      1. Check out Consortium News for a hard-hitting article that calls out the queen’s imperialism without counter-productively calling her an asshole. How something is said affects how it’s received, especially by those in opposing echo chambers–you know, the ones we’re supposed to be trying to reach, the ones we must reach if we’re to really change things.

          as an attention grabbing device, ‘asshole’ seems to work much better, though (it was probably a tweet?). allying with loyal royalists to fight empire, not a good idea, imo.
