    “Craig Hulet: Corporatocracy Dictatorship is the Next Step”

    Sorry to tell you but its already here and has been for a while and its wearing a mask called democracy for disguise.

    • Number1Framer

      Preach brotha!

  • kowalityjesus

    Stop belittling Africa

    • InfvoCuernos

      Look at all that juicy land ripe for picking! How many times has the West divyed up the Dark Continent, only to get spit back out? Probably been happening since before we were humans.

      • kowalityjesus

        Well the Sahara was pretty well an insulator for cultural exchange. Up until the voyages commissioned by Henry the Navigator, it was widely believed that the little cape at Dakar was impassible, and the sea became so hot that it boiled. So the idea that a certain massive territory “was under the control” of a tiny number of whites was an absurd and ephemeral notion of 19th century Europeans using Mercator Projections. Many of the territories carved out were as large as the Louisiana Purchase i.e. absurd, and the fact they took it upon themselves to color that area one color on a political map and call it theirs is also absurd.

    I imagine that the future probably looks like Elysium. But the uber rich will probably live in fortified compounds and arcologies rather than space, first protected by PMCs, then after google perfects androids; by combat droids and drones. They’ll likely have a lower manager class living in well patrolled and protected suburbs and the working class will probably all end up in barely disguised prison-esque favellas. The far off rural areas will likely be left to themselves with PMCs sowing disorder to prevent the rise of any organized resistance.

      Music is the weapon of the future.

      • InfvoCuernos

        Don’t forget dance!

        • Mr Grim

          Interpretative dancers shall be our shock troops!

          (Or at least, you know, used to clear minefields, along with the piano accordion players.)

        • kowalityjesus

          nope, non concur. Music is way more important. Aliens probably like Bach because he is a man that measures the universe, but they don’t care about dancing because that is the measure of a man, even though it can be pretty awesome, it has the built in ceiling of human capability. Music has a much wider definition

          • InfvoCuernos

            You make a good argument. Also, I’m not much of a dancer.

    • aaron

      What you are referring to is essentially just a modern version of feudalism. The serfs or peasants work the land while the self proclaimed lord of the manor who owns the land gets the benefits of their work and allows them to stay on his land in exchange for work.

      • Anarchy Pony

        Oh I know. But they like to pretend(or at least say) it’s something different.

        • aaron

          THEY do a lot of that. THEY manage to convince the sheep times have changed and we dont have slavery. In all reality THEY have just perfected their control over the slaves where the slaves dont even know they’re slaves and dont even realize THEY exist. Welcome to the Matrix version 1.0.

          • InfvoCuernos

            As long as I have my iphone, they can do what they want.

          • aaron

            Oh dont worry they want you to keep it. If they need to keep tabs on you they will just use the GPS to track you and the camera and microphone to watch and listen to conversations and keep tabs on every text and phonecall and email you send and every webpage you visit. I kind of laugh at people that think the government is gonna force people to have microchip trackers implanted in them. Why force this upon people when they will willingly carry the tracker around in their pocket and it does so much more than just provide location data.

          • InfvoCuernos

            AND they’ll make us pay a premium for it.

          • aaron

            Ha true.

            But if you cant afford it dont worry we have got free or discounted government subsidy services like Lifeline to help you get a phone. Because you know we gotta keep tabs on you some how.

          • InfvoCuernos

            and nobody needs tracking like the poor and downtrodden.

          • aaron

            Its called “poverty of philosophy” by immortal technique if you just wanna youtube it cuz its a lot to read……

            Most of my Latino and black people who are struggling to get food, clothes and shelter in the hood are so concerned with that, that philosophising about freedom and socialist democracy is usually unfortunately beyond their rationale. They don’t realize that America can’t exist without separating them from their identity, because if we had some sense of who we really are, there’s no way in hell we’d allow this country to push it’s genocidal consensus on our homelands. This ignorance exists, but it can be destroyed.
            Nigga talk about change and working within the system to achieve that. The problem with always being a conformist is that when you try to change the system from within, it’s not you who changes the system; it’s the system that will eventually change you. There is usually nothing wrong with compromise in a situation, but compromising yourself in a situation is another story completely, and I have seen this happen long enough in the few years that I’ve been alive to know that it’s a serious problem. Latino America is a huge colony of countries whose presidents are cowards in the face of economic imperialism. You see, third world countries are rich places, abundant in resources, and many of these countries have the capacity to feed their starving people and the children we always see digging for food in trash on commercials. But plutocracies, in other words a government run by the rich such as this one and traditionally oppressive European states, force the third world into buying overpriced, unnecessary goods while exporting huge portions of their natural resources.
            I’m quite sure that people will look upon my attitude and sentiments and look for hypocrisy and hatred in my words. My revolution is born out of love for my people, not hatred for others.
            You see, most of Latinos are here because of the great inflation that was caused by American companies in Latin America. Aside from that, many are seeking a life away from the puppet democracies that were funded by the United States; places like El Salvador, Guatemala, Peru, Columbia, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Republica Dominicana, and not just Spanish-speaking countries either, but Haiti and Jamaica as well.
            As different as we have been taught to look at each other by colonial society, we are in the same struggle and until we realize that, we’ll be fighting for scraps from the table of a system that has kept us subservient instead of being self-determined. And that’s why we have no control over when the embargo will stop in Cuba, or when the bombs will stop dropping in Vieques.
            But you see, here in America the attitude that is fed to us is that outside of America there live lesser people. “Fuck them, let them fend for themselves.” No, Fuck you, they are you. No matter how much you want to dye your hair blonde and put fake eyes in, or follow an anorexic standard of beauty, or no matter how many diamonds you buy from people who exploit your own brutally to get them, no matter what kind of car you drive or what kind of fancy clothes you put on, you will never be them. They’re always gonna look at you as nothing but a little monkey. I’d rather be proud of what I am, rather than desperately trying to be something I’m really not, just to fit in. And whether we want to accept it or not, that’s what this culture or lack of culture is feeding us.
            I want a better life for my family and for my children, but it doesn’t have to be at the expense of millions of lives in my homeland. We’re given the idea that if we didn’t have these people to exploit then America wouldn’t be rich enough to let us have these little petty material things in our lives and basic standards of living. No, that’s wrong. It’s the business giants and the government officials who make all the real money. We have whatever they kick down to us. My enemy is not the average white man, it’s not the kid down the block or the kids I see on the street; my enemy is the white man I don’t see: the people in the white house, the corporate monopoly owners, fake liberal politicians those are my enemies. The generals of the armies that are mostly conservatives those are the real Mother-Fuckers that I need to bring it to, not the poor, broke country-ass soldier that’s too stupid to know shit about the way things are set up.
            In fact, I have more in common with most working and middle-class white people than I do with most rich black and Latino people. As much as racism bleeds America, we need to understand that classism is the real issue. Many of us are in the same boat and it’s sinking, while these bougie Mother-Fuckers ride on a luxury liner, and as long as we keep fighting over kicking people out of the little boat we’re all in, we’re gonna miss an opportunity to gain a better standard of living as a whole.
            In other words, I don’t want to escape the plantation I want to come back, free all my people, hang the Mother-Fucker that kept me there and burn the house to the god damn ground. I want to take over the encomienda and give it back to the people who work the land.
            You cannot change the past but you can make the future, and anyone who tells you different is a Fucking lethargic devil. I don’t look at a few token Latinos and black people in the public eye as some type of achievement for my people as a whole. Most of those successful individuals are sell-outs and house Negros.
            But, I don’t consider brothers a sell-out if they move out of the ghetto. Poverty has nothing to do with our people. It’s not in our culture to be poor. That’s only been the last 500 years of our history; look at the last 2000 years of our existence and what we brought to the world in terms of science, mathematics, agriculture and forms of government. You know the idea of a confederation of provinces where one federal government controls the states? The Europeans who came to this country stole that idea from the Iroquois lead. The idea of impeaching a ruler comes from an Aztec tradition. That’s why Montezuma was stoned to death by his own people ’cause he represented the agenda of white Spaniards once he was captured, not the Aztec people who would become Mexicans.
            So in conclusion, I’m not gonna vote for anybody just ’cause they black or Latino they have to truly represent the community and represent what’s good for all of us proletariat.
            Porque sino entonces te mando por el carajo cabron gusano hijo de puta, seramos libre pronto, viva la revolucion, VIVA LA REVOLUCION!

          • Mr B
      • InfvoCuernos

        The analogy holds so well, that I refuse to believe that it isn’t intentional. Everything from dumbing down our public education, to the collection of taxes by your overlord(or employer). The only point that I think feudalism differs from what we currently have, is the levying of troops, which is still in the hands of the state. I think they have kept that power in order to insure that corporations don’t overthrow them. If you study the final century before the fall of the western Roman empire, you can clearly see that our current political system was modeled with “improvements” on the empire. The “founding fathers” were very big on Rome.

    • InfvoCuernos

      This is pretty much what we have now, but with a lower tech level. If you replace the “PMC” with police, and “favela” with ghettos and barrios then you have the situation today.

      • Anarchy Pony

        Yeah. But it can always get worse.

    • Ted Heistman

      I agree 150% that that is a likely scenario given current trends. I’m even working on a science fiction novel with that scenario as its Universe.

    • Oginikwe

      Not if we get ’em first.

  • tesisson

    GREAT THEORY! Except it’s always been that way
