The Holocaust- the mass sacrifice of over eighteen million innocent Protestants, Orthodox Christians, ethnic Jews and minority groups by burning several million of them alive in ovens in Poland and Russia less than seventy years ago by Catholic dictators Adolf Hitler S.J. and Fr Joseph Stalin S.J. represents the largest and most expensive act of mass human sacrifice in history.

So vast were the military and logistical resources ordered to be deployed to this “Great Inquisition” from Rome from 1939 to 1945 that it played a major part to the eventual downfall of the Nazi Third Reich. The effort to efficiently sacrifice the largest number of non-Catholics in 24 x 7 purpose-built ovens [24 hours a day, 7 days a week] was a massive logistical effort- not the least of which required the complete genealogy analysis of most of Europe.

If not for the genius of fledgling American technology companies such as Innovative Business Machines, who created the first computers for the task of confirming who were to be saved and who were to be slaughtered, if not for the hundreds of millions of dollars in research by pharmacetical companies into advance nerve agents to render people unconscious in “gas” chambers for easy transport to the ovens, then the plan would have been impossible.

But most of all, if not for the willing and complicit support by Allied leaders not to interfere with the Vatican project, the Nazis managed to kill more innocent people by fire in 1944 and 1945 than all the other years combined.

All photos of the camps taken by the allies since early 1940 were classified at the highest level of secrecy. Clear and unmistakable evidence since World War II has emerged that the allied command even went to the extraordinary length of tracking logistical movements and likely process rates of victims by tracking rail movements to the sacrifice camps. In the end, they permitted not one single bomb to be dropped on the Vatican Nazi Death camps.

At the end of the war, the first thing that the Allies did under Eisenhower was pull down and dig up as much incriminating evidence as possible. Many of the oven blocks---ahead of any other buildings---were quickly dismantled and destroyed in many camps. Some camps, such as the only human sacrifice camp dedicated to burning children (Lodz) was virtually wiped from history.

By the time the time the Nuremberg Trials started (secretly directed by Georgetown University Jesuit Priest Edmund Walsh), many of the key Nazis behind the Holocaust were given fake deaths, or safely transported to new countries and new identities, the total number sacrificed was set at the “acceptable” level of six million and no mention of the Roman Catholic Cult, the Roman Catholic statues at the camps , nor the Occult was ever officially mentioned at the trials of hundreds of guards and officers.

“We did not know”, became the official line of denial fed to the public of the winning side. Even evidence was conveniently “found” calling it the “Final Solution to the Jewish Question” in a former Gestapo Headquarters. The window of sacrifice was cut short from 1939 to 1945 to just three years (1943-1945) to minimize the complicity of Allied leaders. Yet of all the terrible and criminal lies created by the CFR-led American military and RIIA-led British military it was the argument that people were gassed to death because it was “cheaper” that remains the final and lasting insult to some of the darkest days of human history.

Twenty million people could have been murdered the same as many other dictators had done throughout in history, simply by mass murder and burial or the bodies disposed by creating great pits as was done during the plagues of Europe hundreds of years before which killed ten times more people.

Yet the evil charade, that the Holocaust was merely a hatefully racist, expedient, Nazi system of “cost saving” extermination, remains the accepted view---an absurdity that defies all the evidence to the contrary. That the main architects of this terrible period remain protected to this day is a mockery to the memory of every single Jew, every Russian Orthodox, every Greek Orthodox, every Protestant, every Baptist and every person sacrificed in the ovens.

It is to these souls that we deserve to show better. It is to their memory and peace that this brief article will explore the truth behind the Holocaust- who was really behind it, why? and why justice is still yet to shine upon these millions of victims.
A Dramatically Different History to What You Were Taught

For many readers, just the introduction to this article will be grave cause for concern. First, for many, the fact of the complete and total involvement of the Catholic Church from the highest levels in the sacrifice of millions of innocent people may sound preposterous. For others, the claim that Stalin and even Heinrich Himmler were Jesuit priests will sound farfetched.

Yet at stake is not merely the question of “who was really behind the Holocaust? And why?”, but the need to clearly state the truth that three times more people died in the human sacrifice camps than what they told you- and that the same people that did this have never been punished and have even greater resources and power today than they did seventy years ago.

Many a good Holocaust historian and researcher has known, as they have reviewed what evidence remains, that great and deliberate gaps in our knowledge exist. These honest men and women of academia know in their hearts and in their fine minds that what the Allies said after the war about “not knowing” was just a big lie covering up something else.

For the sake of future generations it is time to set the record straight- it is time to tell the truth who was really behind it and why. I therefore urge you and everyone who starts to read this article to finish it before making your final conclusions.
1930’s Europe

The seeds from which the idea for the greatest human sacrifice of innocent lives originated is first to be found in the changing political fortunes of the Roman Catholic Church in Europe following World War I.

World War I marked a watershed for the Vatican. The destruction of the Austria-Hungary Empire thanks to the war finally freed the Popes---after nearly five hundred years---from treaties that permitted the royal houses descended from the Holy Roman Emperors to directly intervene in Papal elections. The destruction of Germany and French noble influence was “sweet revenge” in response to their pursuit of enlightened policies of secularism in the years leading to the “Great War”.

For the first time in five centuries, the Catholic Church now found itself free to pursue its own course, without fearing the influence of the royal families---with one exception---Germany. Once the German royal family was destroyed- the church would be completely free.

However, its immediate enemy remained the strong movement for major social reform- the end to corrupt capitalism, the promotion of science, education and fair social values---a world that if ever implemented was one in which the Roman Catholic Church would not exist.

It was Achille Ratti (Pope Pius XI) who devised a new counter strategy against “modernism” through his Papal Bull Ubi Arcano (December 1922) to encourage, promote and hand pick Catholic men and women who would pursue the best interests of the Church in their respective societies without becoming priests and nuns.

The effect of the policies, plans and edicts of Pope Pius XI were to effectively make the immense Catholic apparatus throughout the world- one giant political party – one which could easily defeat any candidate, president, prime minister – one which could also elect its own leaders with absolute allegiance to Rome.

Consider this fact- what politician running for office in a Christian nation today would be foolish enough to upset the Roman Catholic Church? Yet less than 100 years ago, many industrialized nations expelled the Jesuits (yet again) and considered Vatican the epicenter of evil.

By 1919, a key protégé of Pope Pius, Eugenio Pacelli, had already selected a suitable candidate for the church in Germany ---a young fiercely Catholic intelligence officer named Adolf Hitler who Pacelli meet at least once a week during the early years in Munich as both Hitler’s patron and financier as well as his controller.

By 1933, the Catholic Church had succeeded beyond its wildest dreams with loyal Roman Catholic Dictators now controlling Italy, Germany, Spain, Croatia, Russia (Fr Stalin S.J.) and key nations in South America. It was probably this year---the Vatican and Jesuits holding the greatest power in its hands for over six hundred years--- that the “Final Solution” was hatched between Cardinal Pacelli, Count Fr. Wlodimir Ledochowski (Jesuit Superior General) and a handful of hardliners of the Curia, including Munich Archbishop, Michael Cardinal von Faulhaber.
Building the environment of hatred, racism against minorities

Until the 1930’s the United States Government was still “technically” at diplomatic war with the Vatican on account of the Jesuit-led assassination of Abraham Lincoln seventy years prior. But upon the election of Franklin Delano Roosevelt as President, the Catholic Church found a strong ally and kindred spirit.

Thanks to the work of Georgetown University Jesuit Fr. Edmund Walsh S.J.---arguably one of the most powerful Americans of the 20th Century---FDR and Wall St. backed Hitler and Catholic Dictators as “good for business”. Hundreds of millions of dollars began to be invested into rebuilding the German economy.

With America now firmly a Vatican ally for the first time in history, this left only the United Kingdom and a handful of European governments and minorities as any threat left to Rome when in fact, the Jesuit Order had controlled the English monarchy, Parliament and Intelligence services since no later than the reign of King George III.

Count Wlodimir Ledochowski S.J. then unleashed a stream of literature and propaganda against minority groups, especially the Jews including the infamous The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion---a document that if simply re-edited to replace the word “Jew” with “Jesuit” is a chillingly accurate blueprint for what Roman Catholic Dictators were ordered to do.

Within one generation, the world had turned from philosophical discussions concerning secularism and why “God is dead” to serious discussions on Eugenics, racial purity and how to deal with dangerous “anti-social” minorities.

By 1937, the anti-semitic, anti-minority hatred orchestrated by Fr. Ledochowski S.J. and his Jesuit army had become so pervasive that most Catholic Dictators were comfortable with the idea that the public would not erupt in rebellion if minorities were to be “safely” removed from society.

However, a powerful new enemy appeared at the same time against the propaganda of the Jesuits spurning hatred and fear---Pope Pius XI himself. The Pope had become a fervent critic of the hatefully racist policies now being carried out by Roman Catholic Dictators thanks to Fr. Ledochowski S.J. and the hardliners.

The final straw came in 1939, when the Pope planned to issue a Papal Bull effectively making it a grave sin for any Catholic to act against another human being based on their creed, skin colour or political beliefs. The Jesuit superior general intercepted the Bull before it could be promulgated as new church law and a few days the Pope was dead, another victim of the Company's "poison cup."

A few weeks later, Pacelli was made Pope. A few months later the Jesuit-controlled, Roman Catholic dictators started World War II.
The Final Solution of Pope Pius XII

With the world now at war at the end of 1939, Roman Catholic Dictators had the perfect conditions with which to implement the “ethnic cleansing” programs on an unprecedented scale.

As proof to the premeditated evil of the team of Pope Pius XII and Ledochowski had already forced Hitler to accept the appointment of then 29 year old rank outsider Fr. Heinrich Himmler S.J. as head of the Schutzstaffel (Nazi SS) in 1929. Pacelli and Ledochowski helped protect and guide Himmler so by the outbreak of World War II, he commanded a force of millions from regular police across Germany to specialist scientists and interrogators – ready to spring into action.

Contrary to the propaganda written up by Knight of Malta Dwight D. Eisenhower [New York Archbishop Francis Spellman's great Allied "Crusader"] and others after the war, 1939 marks the beginning of the implementation of the “Final Solution” designed, planned and directed by Pope Pius XII and the Jesuits.

The plan was simple – convince Roman Catholic Dictators to transport the unwanted to “labour camps” where they would be put to use and then later "dispatched", i.e., murdered, discretely using the trusted services of a dedicated “untouchable” unit of the SS. Almost certainly no mention of live human sacrifice, nor satanic rituals would have ever been mentioned to anyone by senior Vatican and Jesuit circles nor by the loyal troop of the SS under the command of Fr. Himmler S.J.

Just as the cover of “labour camps” is still used to cover up the extent of the holocaust today, it is certain this kind of disinformation was fed through to the German High Command as well as Roman Catholic commands in Spain, Italy and Croatia who sent many of their citizens to the death camps.

Now with an agreement in place for Roman Catholic leaders to supply millions of poor souls, the next challenge was where to put them and to hide any obvious, strategic, occult importance.
Why Poland?

One of the obvious historic mysteries of World War II is "why did the Nazi's choose certain locations in Poland to place the sacrifice camps?" To this question a number of traditional answers are given---most notably that Poland was an occupied country and that it was in a central location to which millions could be transported like cattle.

This is true. Roman Catholic Poland was the obvious choice for the death camps- first, because it was occupied territory free from the gaze of citizens of Germany, Italy, Spain and the rest of the world. It was also the center of unrivaled Jesuit spiritual and temporal power in Europe, including Roman Catholic Bavaria.

But there are other, more specific reasons that give flesh to the logic of the precise locations for camps and why. The first piece of the puzzle is to understand the hatred of Polish Roman Catholicism towards the satanic hardliners in the pope's Curia and Jesuits and the personal feud of the Ledochowski family against the disgrace of their patriarch.

Count Mieczyslaw Halka Ledóchowski, uncle of Fr. Ledochowski S.J., had been Cardinal Primate of Poland from 1866 to 1886. The Polish Catholic Church has always been fiercly perochial and in 1867 Cardinal Ledóchowski finally ordered that church ceremonies were to be performed in Latin and not Polish, the forbiddance of Polish songs and that nothing be published without his authority.

These edicts enraged the local Polish clergy who---like the Irish church centuries before---sought to place the mysteries of Christianity into a local community context. The Polish Catholic clergy rebelled against Cardinal Ledochowski and successfully lobbied the Protestant Lutheran Prussian authorities, including Lutherans Prince Bismarck and Kaiser Wilhelm I, to imprison him, confiscate family property and forever humilate the family name. Eventually Cardinal Ledochowski was released to Rome---a broken man in disgrace.

To Count Wlodimir Ledochowski S.J., the Black Pope and most powerful Jesuit General in the history of the order since Francis Borja, Poland was a cursed place. Probably no more senior satanist within the Roman Catholic Church hated Poland more. During the tenure of his uncle as Primate, he would have been familiar of the shrines to Cybele (Sibyl) located at Warsaw and on the grounds of Czartoryska Palace at Pulawy.

These 19th Century shrines held enormous importance to the ancient satanist Papal families. Apart from the Vatican itself---as the oldest and most important temple of Cybele---and Tivoli (outside Rome), the two temples in Poland were the only other functioning temples within Europe.

Warsaw was too public a place at which to hold supremely evil satanic ceremonies to "harness" the souls of the damned---sacrificed in fire. But Czartoryska Palace at Pulawy and the magnificently architected 19th Century Cybele Temple was perfect.

When the SS began their "cleaning" campaign in earnest, the first district was the region surrounding Pulawy. Next was the precise location of the specialized human sacrifice camps.
The Satanic Pentagram of Pope Pius XII and the Black Pope

The ancient satanic families that have controlled the Vatican for centuries have known that condemned souls---cursed souls---are not at rest. The manipulation and use of this negative energy has always been at the heart of Black Magic.

Historically, Geometry and shapes of power have also played a vital part in the planning and ceremony of real satanists. No shape is considered more powerful for the harnessing of negative energy to one's human will than the Pentagram.

To form a Pentagram of supreme evil, Pope Pius XII and the Black Pope Ledochowski would need at least five sacrifice camps- one for each point of the star. But a system with just five camps would arouse immediate suspicion as to its nature. Instead, the human sacrifice camps and their precise geographic location was deliberately masked in a seemingly random and opportunistic landscape of work camps and other death camps.

But at the heart of this complex system of detention camps, torture camps and sacrifice camps remained the Pentagram of Pope Pius and Fr. Ledochowski S.J.---the channel through which eighteen millions souls passed---damned by the satanic leadership of the Roman Catholic Church.

You can still easily plot this Pentagram for yourself today by simply calling up any map of Poland.

1. First, find Pulawy on a Map---the Palace and Temple to Cybele is located just to the South West of the town itself.

2. Now go directly up and stop just south-East of Ostrow---this is the top tip of the Pentagram and the site for Treblinka Human Sacrifice Camp.

3. Now continue to travel down South -East---past Pulawy until you find the town in Orthodox Ukraine called L'viv. Due west of this town was the Janowska Human Sacrifice Camp---frequently misrepresented as merely a labor camp.

4. Now travel west until you travel past Krakow until just above the town of Bielsko-Biala. This was the site of the massive Auschwitz Human Sacrifice Camp.

5. Now travel north until you find the town of Lodz. This was the site of the only human sacrifice camp dedicated purely to children- the Lodz Human Sacrifice Camp.

6. Finally, travel east again until you find the small town ot Wlodawa---almost on the border of the Ukraine---this was the site of the Sobibor Human Sacrifice Camp.

There is your Pentagram of Pure Evil. There is your Pentagram of death constructed to attempt to channel the greatest amount of negative energy to one location in the history of humanity.

In addition, at least three other Human Sacrifice Camps were set up along the "ley lines" of the Pentagram, including Belzec, Tomaszow Mazowiecki and Majdanek.
Why?

The final question is probably why? Why would people be so evil? The answer lies at the heart of how society has been fashioned by forces for centuries---forces that do not wish the world to progress---but people who pretend to be pious but instead plot to keep the world in misery. These forces have plotted to return the world to the pope's feudal Dark Ages while destroying the Modern Era born out of the Protestant Reformation.

At the time, Pope Pius XII and the Black Pope of the Jesuits held supreme temporal power – thanks to the willing implementation by Fr. Heinrich Himmler S.J. and Fr. Alexander N. Poskrebyshev S.J., Soviet Lieutenant General known as the "General of the Lubyanka" (NKVD headquarters in Moscow), and Stalin's right hand and absolute advisor inside the Kremlin.

Maybe the motive was the same as had been all other Satanist leaders of the Roman Catholic Church over the centuries---to re-establish control---to strike fear into the hearts of the enemy---to empower and rejuvenate the "Holy Mother Church" in accordance with the Jesuit Orders' Counter Reformation Council of Trent.

However, this argument concerning "rejuvination of power" does not account for the serious attempt at the very least of harnessing, if not “unleashing” some kind of satanic-luciferian power.

In fact, the argument of temporal power, appears quite superficial compared to the prevailing evidence suggesting the oldest fraternity of Satanists and Luciferians, genuinely seeking to somehow “renew” their ancient covenant with dark forces.
If this is the deeper motive, it indicates two things: a long standing absence of visible supernatural force and revelation within the halls and catacombs of the Vatican and second, a terrible miscalculation at the time concerning such forces.

While no mention of the Vatican's complete and total implication in such crimes have ever been publicly revealed, it can be argued that events unleashed at this time are the backdrop to dramatic events as recently as March 2013.

    A Terrible Normality by Michael Parenti

    by Michael Parenti Featured Writer Dandelion Salad Michael Parenti Blog www.michaelparenti.org Jan. 25, 2013

    Genocide Phnom Penh

    Image by LKEM via Flickr

    Through much of history the abnormal has been the norm. This is a paradox to which we should attend. Aberrations, so plentiful as to form a terrible normality of their own, descend upon us with frightful consistency.

    The number of massacres in history, for instance, are almost more than we can record.  There was the New World holocaust, consisting of the extermination of indigenous Native American peoples throughout the western hemisphere, extending over four centuries or more, continuing into recent times in the Amazon region.

    There were the centuries of heartless slavery in the Americas and elsewhere, followed by a full century of lynch mob rule and Jim Crow segregation in the United States, and today the numerous killings and incarcerations of Black youth by law enforcement agencies.

    Let us not forget the extermination of some 200,000 Filipinos by the U.S. military at the beginning of the twentieth century, the genocidal massacre of 1.5 million Armenians by the Turks in 1915, and the mass killings of African peoples by the western colonists, including the 63,000 Herero victims in German Southwest Africa in 1904, and the brutalization and enslavement of millions in the Belgian Congo from the late 1880s until emancipation in 1960—followed by years of neocolonial free-market exploitation and repression in what was Mobutu’s Zaire.

    French colonizers killed some 150,000 Algerians. Later on, several million souls perished in Angola and Mozambique along with an estimated five million in the merciless region now known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

    The twentieth century gave us—among other horrors—more than sixteen million lost and twenty million wounded or mutilated in World War I, followed by the estimated 62 million to 78 million killed in World War II, including some 24 million Soviet military personnel and civilians, 5.8 million European Jews, and taken together:  several million Serbs, Poles, Roma, homosexuals, and a score of other nationalities.

    In the decades after World War II, many, if not most, massacres and wars have been openly or covertly sponsored by the U.S. national security state. This includes the two million or so left dead or missing in Vietnam, along with 250,000 Cambodians, 100,000 Laotians, and 58,000 Americans.

    Today in much of Africa, Central Asia, and the Middle East there are “smaller” wars, replete with atrocities of all sorts. Central America, Colombia, Rwanda and other places too numerous to list, suffered the massacres and death-squad exterminations of hundreds of thousands, a constancy of violent horrors. In Mexico a “war on drugs” has taken 70,000 lives with 8,000 missing.

    There was the slaughter of more than half a million socialistic or democratic nationalist Indonesians by the U.S.-supported Indonesian military in 1965, eventually followed by the extermination of 100,000 East Timorese by that same U.S.-backed military.

    Consider the 78-days of NATO’s aerial destruction of Yugoslavia complete with depleted uranium, and the bombings and invasion of Panama, Grenada, Somalia, Libya, Yemen, Western Pakistan, Afghanistan, and now the devastating war of attrition brokered against Syria. And as I write (early 2013), the U.S.-sponsored sanctions against Iran are seeding severe hardship for the civilian population of that country.

    All the above amounts to a very incomplete listing of the world’s violent and ugly injustice. A comprehensive inventory would fill volumes. How do we record the countless other life-searing abuses: the many millions who survive wars and massacres but remain forever broken in body and spirit, left to a lifetime of suffering and pitiless privation, refugees without sufficient food or medical supplies or water and sanitation services in countries like Syria, Haiti, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, and Mali.

    Think of the millions of women and children around the world and across the centuries who have been trafficked in unspeakable ways, and the millions upon millions trapped in exploitative toil, be they slaves, indentured servants, or underpaid laborers. The number of impoverished is now growing at a faster rate than the world’s population.  Add to that, the countless acts of repression, incarceration, torture, and other criminal abuses that beat upon the human spirit throughout the world day by day.

    Let us not overlook the ubiquitous corporate corruption and massive financial swindles, the plundering of natural resources and industrial poisoning of whole regions, the forceful dislocation of entire populations, the continuing catastrophes of Chernobyl and Fukushima and other impending disasters awaiting numerous aging nuclear reactors.

    The world’s dreadful aberrations are so commonplace and unrelenting that they lose their edge and we become inured to the horror of it all. “Who today remembers the Armenians?” Hitler is quoted as having said while plotting his “final solution” for the Jews. Who today remembers the Iraqis and the death and destruction done to them on a grand scale by the U.S. invasion of their lands? William Blum reminds us that more than half the Iraq population is either dead, wounded, traumatized, imprisoned, displaced, or exiled, while their environment is saturated with depleted uranium (from U.S. weaponry) inflicting horrific birth defects.

    What is to be made of all this? First, we must not ascribe these aberrations to happenstance, innocent confusion, and unintended consequences.  Nor should we believe the usual rationales about spreading democracy, fighting terrorism, providing humanitarian rescue, protecting U.S. national interests and other such rallying cries promulgated by ruling elites and their mouthpieces.

    The repetitious patterns of atrocity and violence are so persistent as to invite the suspicion that they usually serve real interests; they are structural not incidental.  All this destruction and slaughter has greatly profited those plutocrats who pursue economic expansion, resource acquisition, territorial dominion, and financial accumulation.

    Ruling interests are well served by their superiority in firepower and striking force. Violence is what we are talking about here, not just the wild and wanton type but the persistent and well-organized kind. As a political resource, violence is the instrument of ultimate authority. Violence allows for the conquest of entire lands and the riches they contain, while keeping displaced laborers and other slaves in harness.

    The plutocratic rulers find it necessary to misuse or exterminate restive multitudes, to let them starve while the fruits of their land and the sweat of their labor enrich privileged coteries.

    Thus we had a profit-driven imperial rule that helped precipitate the great famine in northern China, 1876-1879, resulting in the death of some thirteen million. At about that same time the Madras famine in India took the lives of as many as twelve million while the colonial forces grew ever richer.  And thirty years earlier, the great potato famine in Ireland led to about one million deaths, with another desperate million emigrating from their homeland. Nothing accidental about this: while the Irish starved, their English landlords exported shiploads of Irish grain and livestock to England and elsewhere at considerable profit to themselves.

    These occurrences must be seen as something more than just historic abnormalities floating aimlessly in time and space, driven only by overweening impulse or happenstance. It is not enough to condemn monstrous events and bad times, we also must try to understand them. They must be contextualized in the larger framework of historical social relations.

    The dominant socio-economic system today is free-market capitalism (in all its variations). Along with its unrelenting imperial terrorism, free-market capitalism provides “normal abnormalities” from within its own dynamic, creating scarcity and maldistributed excess, filled with duplication, waste, overproduction, frightening environmental destruction, and varieties of financial crises, bringing swollen rewards to a select few and continual hardship to multitudes.

    Economic crises are not exceptional; they are the standing operational mode of the capitalist system. Once again, the irrational is the norm. Consider U.S. free-market history: after the American Revolution, there were the debtor rebellions of the late 1780s, the panic of 1792, the recession of 1809 (lasting several years), the panics of 1819 and 1837, and recessions and crashes through much of the rest of that century. The serious recession of 1893 continued for more than a decade.

    After the industrial underemployment of 1900 to 1915 came the agrarian depression of the 1920s—hidden behind what became known to us as “the Jazz Age,” followed by a horrendous crash and the Great Depression of 1929-1942. All through the twentieth century we had wars, recessions, inflation, labor struggles, high unemployment—hardly a year that would be considered “normal” in any pleasant sense. An extended normal period would itself have been an abnormality. The free market is by design inherently unstable in every aspect other than wealth accumulation for the select few.

    What we are witnessing is not an irrational output from a basically rational society but the converse: the “rational” (to be expected) output of a fundamentally irrational system. Does this mean these horrors are inescapable? No, they are not made of supernatural forces. They are produced by plutocratic greed and deception.

    So, if the aberrant is the norm and the horrific is chronic, then we in our fightback should give less attention to the idiosyncratic and more to the systemic. Wars, massacres and recessions help to increase capital concentration, monopolize markets and natural resources, and destroy labor organizations and popular transformative resistance.

    The brutish vagaries of plutocracy are not the product of particular personalities but of systemic interests. President George W. Bush was ridiculed for misusing words, but his empire-building and stripping of government services and regulations revealed a keen devotion to ruling-class interests.  Likewise, President Barack Obama is not spineless. He is hypocritical but not confused. He is (by his own description) an erstwhile “liberal Republican,” or as I would put it, a faithful servant of corporate America.

    Our various leaders are well informed, not deluded. They come from different regions and different families, and have different personalities, yet they pursue pretty much the same policies on behalf of the same plutocracy.

    So it is not enough to denounce atrocities and wars, we also must understand who propagates them and who benefits. We have to ask why violence and deception are constant ingredients.

    Unintended consequences and other oddities do arise in worldly affairs but we also must take account of interest-driven rational intentions. More often than not, the aberrations—be they wars, market crashes, famines, individual assassinations or mass killings—take shape because those at the top are pursuing gainful expropriation. Many may suffer and perish but somebody somewhere is benefiting boundlessly.

    Knowing your enemies and what they are capable of doing is the first step toward effective opposition. The world becomes less of a horrific puzzlement.  We can only resist these global (and local) perpetrators when we see who they are and what they are doing to us and our sacred environment.

    Democratic victories, however small and partial they be, must be embraced. But the people must not be satisfied with tinseled favors offered by smooth leaders. We need to strive in every way possible for the revolutionary unraveling, a revolution of organized consciousness striking at the empire’s heart with the full force of democracy, the kind of irresistible upsurge that seems to come from nowhere while carrying everything before it.

    Load of bollocks at the Vatican

    Monday 28 April 2014

    ‘Pope Francis has declared Popes John Paul II and John XXIII saints, in front of a crowd of hundreds of thousands.

    He praised his two predecessors as “men of courage” at the Vatican service, the first time in history that two popes have been canonised at the same time.

    The Mass was attended by Pope Emeritus Benedict, who quit as pope last year, and roughly 100 foreign delegations.

    Analysts say Francis is trying to balance the conservative legacy of John Paul with the reforming zeal of John.’
