Serotonin In The Service Of American Aggression And My Formative Years

Serotonin In The Service Of American Aggression And My Formative Years

                   From the age of nine (1942) I was allowed to attend the Saturday afternoon matinee at the Killester cinema in Dublin where we children were exposed to the diet of Hollywood junk projections spreading throughout the world at that time. At the mesmerising vanguard of American ethnological assumptions, the cowboy-and- indian genre…Hollywood’s nest egg…became the flagship of the film[Read More…]

American Democracy And ‘So Say I’ Genres

American Democracy And ‘So Say I’ Genres

In America, where a union of bankers run a system promoting private initiative ahead of public interest, the President has adopted a ‘so say I’ approach to trade and worldly issues that would not be out of place in the British sitcom Fawlty Towers. What can be observed in his approach as ‘leader of the free world’…a very American delusion…[Read More…]

The Inscrutable Protocols Of The Zeitgeist

The Inscrutable Protocols Of The Zeitgeist

                              (has America become a muck-raking- fuck-strutting-scam-swamp?) In our technological age, the protocols of the zeitgeist are shrouded in dubious practices. Like the use of the term ‘force’ in Star Wars, force has become a very special fluid simultaneously circulating in the body politic and the imagination of speculative investors.The monographic stamp of neo-conservative politics is everywhere apparent, showing how[Read More…]

When Army Became A Four-Letter  Word

When Army Became A Four-Letter  Word

                      “There was a young man who said though, it seems that I know that I know, but what I would like to see is the I that knows me, when I know that I know that I know” …Alan W Watts. Propaganda is a language that deals in fear. Its’ modus operandi is to deliver…in pied piper fashion… misnomer[Read More…]

Who Am I To Say That Regulation Is Shit

Who Am I To Say That Regulation Is Shit

                  The capitalist iceberg that we know as the deep state has been operating under the radar and under the waves for many centuries with the privatisation of the polity as its’ end game. As early as the 18th.century, dark European money began finding ways to exploit and colonise the pristine kingdoms of the unindustrialised world.Wherever Europeans moored their sea[Read More…]

The Hourglass

The Hourglass

Yuri Drexler’s first thought was, “how did this parcel ever manage to get through to me?” upon examining the markings on the parcel.He was surprized to see that it had come from Gaza. Within the parcel he had just received was a well-crafted hourglass, set in a cedar frame with the word Palestine carved into the upper orb. Great care[Read More…]

Julian Assange And His Doppelganger

Julian Assange And His Doppelganger

Walking along Hans Crescent every morning on my way to work, I stop briefly to look up at the balcony fronting the room which Julian Assange occupies in the Ecuadorian Embassy. I’ve been passing his place of residence for five years now and I’ve yet to catch a glimpse of him. What I do see though, are some of Her[Read More…]

"The deep disillusionment and anger that led to Donald Trump’s election—a reaction to the corporate coup d’état and the poverty afflicting at least half of the country—have destroyed the myth of a functioning democracy."(Photo: Mr. Fish)

America, A Penthouse Built On Tenaments

Western capitalist countries, especially the United States, have become grotesquely unequal, with a significant portion of their populations angst-ridden, miserable, and living within a framework of economic stagnation. Observing how Donald Trump chooses monologue over dialogue,tweeting and quacking-on about his ‘smartness’, is to witness American exceptionalism firsthand.Smartness appears to be the cloakthat conceals the expropriation of wealth, a practice common[Read More…]

The Voice -Of -America As Trojan Horse (or democracy as American franchise)

The Voice -Of -America As Trojan Horse (or democracy as American franchise)

The Voice of America has always been a ploy to coerce the people into believing that state corporatism is the only legitimate voice to be listened to. The American people have been captive to Corporate Capitalism’s branding of language by means of linguistic chicanery for many decades. As capitalism has no charter, it’s modus operandi merely entailsexpediency. American power elites[Read More…]

Prophesy; How Not To Find Your Voice

Prophesy; How Not To Find Your Voice

                         Frederick Nietzsche spent his fortieth-birthday reflecting on how the Middle East had provided three major exportations of prophetic doctrinal interpretations of god-speak.  He poured over the four etchings of Muhammad, Moses, Isaiah and Jesus he had in his possession, beholding a formidable gallery of conscionable males expressing passion for what they believed werethe indisputably correct paths toward salvation, revealed[Read More…]

To Deduce or Not To…. Existential Observation And The Deep State

To Deduce or Not To…. Existential Observation And The Deep State

  On the one hand, people will deduce that their best interests are served by investing in productive activities that ameliorate deprivation of one kind or another. On the other hand, people will always try to legitimize the means they use as acceptable practice when faced with competition for access to valuable resources. It’s also the case that…like Endymion…people tend[Read More…]

The Paradox Of Cyclical Ingenuity And Virtual Democracy

The Paradox Of Cyclical Ingenuity And Virtual Democracy

In Hellenic times, theatre was regarded as the institution that held all other institutions up to public examination and scrutiny. Its’ function was to focus on the limits of drama as a shared physical experience monitoring social and political responses to the order of the time. Those who attended theatre may have presupposed that ideas had the power to act[Read More…]

 Auguries Of Innocence And Navel-Gazing

Does our understanding of freedom depend on how we respond to two contra cosmological paradigms…namely the interaction between the ‘particular’ and the ‘universal’ …orif you will…the popular versus philosophical narratives that engage us in exercises that shape reality. Technological innovation…as reality on the trot…did much to ensnare popular imagination in a process that fed off locomotion…as did cinematographic art…by way[Read More…]

Pulp Friction

Pulp Friction

Do the righteous amongst us choose formulaic thinking over science-based deductive observation? Pulp Fiction, released in 1994 as an American black comedy neo-noir crime film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, is from a story by Tarantino and Roger Avary. It was, and continues to be a cultural watershed…a great piece of cinematic art capturing the myopia within American culture.Samuel[Read More…]

America’s Retarded Awareness

America’s Retarded Awareness

  Alternative ideas don’t come easily to Americans. It seems that Americans imported colonial hierarchal practices from Europe to cultivate them to their own advantage.Over millennia, Europeans had come to accept the authority of Church, Monarchy or State Principalities to be the places wherethe ‘rightful-centres’ existed. The ‘rightful-centre’ was always beyond the reach of the masses. Pontiffs and warlords alikehad[Read More…]
