#108: Animalism as an Analogy

Before moving on to other papers and series, we thought to give our readers some tools of perception with which to better perceive the present world and current events. One contributor who cannot be ignored would be George Orwell (1903-1950) whose real name was Eric Blair. Orwell wrote Animal Farm, a satirical novel based on the Russian revolution and its aftermath. His other masterwork, 1984, is on our top ten book list and should be read by everyone.

Animalism is a communist philosophy (ideology) of all of the animals being treated equally and sharing equally in both the responsibilities and rewards of the farm. Here are the seven commandments of animalism and their analogies:

1) Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.

Enemies are those on the other side of any ideology: us vs. them. If one has enemies, one needs protection and one usually buys one or is FORCED into supporting one, known as states, the greatest protection rackets known to mankind down through history.

2) Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.

Friends are defined. You don't decide who your friends are, the state decides for you. Unbeknownst to you, people who got rich had these tax dodge institutions formed to tell the government what it wanted done and the results were and are social engineering done on such an insidious scale that eventually we all wake up in a fake world. That process is ongoing right up to this second.

3) No animal shall wear clothes.

No friend will ever adopt the inclinations, preferences, ideas, attitudes and proclivities of the state defined enemies starting with one's outer garments; everything about you will conform to what the state expects from you.

4) No animal shall sleep in a bed.

extended to the enemy preferences for any comfort including housing, extended villages, society, etc. Examples are ever smaller dwelling units and everything sacrificed to the level of having or owning or dealing with as little as possible. All minimalist trends.

5) No animal shall drink alcohol.

extended to the enemy preferences for food and drink or possibly any drugs or cognitive enhancement nutraceuticals. Anything the state forbids, you shall accept their edicts and obey accordingly.

6) No animal shall kill any other animal.

No friend will kill another friend. So if and when a friend kills another friend, it was and is the state that made the decision according to its own needs to preserve its power and extend and consolidate its control.

7) All animals are equal.

All friends are equal a
nd the state determines the nature of that equality. It is never up to you or me. If you and I are friends as defined by the state, then we are equals.

What can we learn from this?

A few things actually. Let's try to begin with ideology. It has two definitions:

1) “a system of ideas and ideals, especially one that forms the basis of economic or political theory and policy.”

The trick word is of course ideals and we know what happens when one has a social irritant concerning ideals; they become idealism, a poisonous social solvent deliberately concocted to cause division, chaos and catastrophe from which the people with money expect eventually to gain. (The character of Mr. Potter from It's A Wonderful Life should come to mind).

This definition includes things like, "the ideology of democracy" with synonyms: beliefs, ideas, ideals, principles, ethics, morals.
2) “archaic - the science of ideas; the study of their origin and nature.”

So we use the first definition which is far narrower than the second which used to be more inclusive. Notice morals are included.

So morality is defined as “principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior.”

This definition includes “ethics, rights and wrongs, ethicality, virtue, goodness, good behavior, righteousness, rectitude, uprightness; morals, principles, honesty, integrity, propriety, honor, justice, decency; ethics, standards/principles of behavior, mores, standards, particular systems of values and principles of conduct, especially one held by a specified person or society: the extent to which an action is right or wrong.”

What I've said for a long time about morality boils down to two things:

1) Awareness of right and wrong, etc. cannot be assumed of everyone and
2) The purpose of morality is to keep its followers safe.

Basically, a moral person is going to be in a safer position most of the time than an immoral or amoral person. But, can moral awareness be impaired or absent? Dare I ask what in our present worldwide distraction service may tend to cause impaired or absent moralities?

What this blog has always intended is to deal fundamentally and honestly with the question of money. Not where it does come from now, hence all the various weird economics associated with that, but where it really belongs; where money MUST come from, if we intend on proceeding further.

Animalism, like communism, socialism, fascism, even nationalism, and what we might even call weaponized democracy, are all forms of statism; a social irritation with the state (various ideologies spring forth from this) which demands that the public uniformly and unquestioningly accept state pronouncements as if issued by God; the authority of the state. Why did we look to the state for so much? Because the money power left most of us no alternative. Most of us have taken it for granted that none of us has any power except those with money without asking how or where it came from because frankly the whole subject was mighty mysterious to us and we thought we'd rather not bother with it. But we complain about it all the time. So it doesn't make any sense, does it?

Hey, this is the 21st century. Don't you suppose we might have learned a few things about subjects like this down through the centuries, come on, like money, to have some better ideas than to just content ourselves with something that did not work well for the vast majority when it was in place? You know what I mean, the so called “gold standard.” What a hoax that is!

First of all, even under THEIR gold standard, the money is still lent to the government at interest and the governments get to spend it before anyone else gets any and the rest trickles down … You know what? Gold per se, is NOT the solution and that retired congressman baby doctor from Texas knows a lot less than any of you imagine on the subject. The “Austrians?” Their stuff proves what I've said consistently in this blog about all economics; nothing but an apologetic for the present system and that is all. Base an economy on usury as the “Austrians” do and eventually the money lenders own things that didn't at first belong to them. Understood?

The other dragon that must be slain is inane panegyrics against fiat money. We accept that all known fiat money has eventually failed and we know why it has failed and it has NOTHING to do with the money being issued by fiat but WHOSE fiat is used to issue it. ALL known fiat currencies were issued by BANKS and lent to STATES at interest. The currency that is most visibly failing right now is Venezuela's and it is no exception.

As Riegel pointed out, states have nothing to sell back to the public for all the money they issued by spending it into the economy. The most they could do would be to tax back as much as they spend, and that would “back” it, but we also know why they can't do that; because of capitalism, we must allow some socialism else the people would revolt.

We hold to precise definitions here on this bog: capitalism is making money on money without work and unless you are rich you can't be a capitalist by definition. If you have been conned into using this word to describe what you do, which is probably free enterprise or PRIVATE enterprise, then kindly drop capitalism from your vocabulary and avoid further cognitive dissonance. Just because one is not a capitalist doesn't make one a socialist. Socialism is the inevitable result of capitalism, the two systems were deliberately devised to take over the world materially, socially and politically, to seal the fate of the freedom of the vast majority of humanity and to ensure the continued power structure's continuance in power. THEY (globalists, bankers, elites) do NOT care about you. In fact for the vast majority of you, THEY propose that you … go off somewhere and die quietly, so as not to disturb THEM at THEIR destructive and self-destructive games.

Those out there with some artificial political-economic axes to grind had better trace every last fact and idea you think you know right back to its original source before accepting any of them as absolutely true. It's time to drop a lot of conceits. I did. So can you. It's the path to perhaps learning something new every day one is alive, rather than assuming that knowing things is something one does when young and thereafter gives no further care for the time and effort it takes to learn anything more.
