The Disillusioned Earthbound Human: A Tragedy  (Part I: “In the beginning…”)

This is the first part of what I hope is a mind tingling, thought provoking, fact based series built from a multitude of academic papers, science documentaries, and historical records. This series is intended to serve as, not only a stand alone Mini-Series, but also as a draft of what will eventually evolved into a greater work to be published later this year. (Of course, it will be evolving under continual revising and editing.)
The goals and objectives for this effort are to produce short, engaging, entertaining, yet educational, historically correct pieces, written at a level early readers, ESL, in fact, emerging readers of any age can manage. If I can reach those readers, I know I can reach all readers with this enlightening account of Earthbound human’s (EBH) plight on his third rock from the Sun.

I, of course, being the consummate existentialist, offer a slightly different (and I believe lighter) perspective than the dry, rules and guidelines state textbook writers are mandated to take. And, while I certainly do not expect to alter the predestined, ultimate conclusion to the story of EBH, I do hope to instill in many of those who read a better understanding of their world.

In my quest to capture, engage, and retain young, busy thinkers, I exclude what I consider extraneous, commonly understood and accepted trivia, and focus on pivotal, life changing events. As I do not write to frighten or shock the reader, I address the reader more as a conversationalist, rather than a lecturer. While, obviously, I am an EBH, I offer my information through the eyes of a detached, neutral observer.

Another goal and objective I hope to achieve is to entice and motivate the reader to want to know more, to want to learn more, perhaps, to verify what I offer as truths and facts. Not wanting to produce an academic paper per se, that is, a page of text peppered with distracting footnotes and/or in text citations, I opt to provide a plethora of resources, via a Works Cited addendum, for the reader to explore and browse through.

Again, in hope of capturing the young reader, my conversational format could be construed as something of a bedtime story, albeit a bedtime story that could be crudely aligned with the classic Shakespearean tragedy, that is to say there are kingdoms, warriors, damsels in distress, alleged witches, and plenty of demons. And, as in many Shakespearean tales, no one survives, there are no true heroes, the women are degraded and exploited, lies and deception are at every turn, with greed and self-glorification being the very foundation of the story.

But the sad truth is, this is not a fictional tale at all. 

This is an actual tragedy being played out in real time, day in and day out. Ongoing. Non-stop. Undeniable by anyone. Inescapable by no one. This is a depiction of life on planet Earth. It is the story of what man, EBH, has evolved to.

One key point I try to impress on readers is simply, if EBH was not consumed, obsessed with one senseless issue, his present day world would be a totally different place; but this obsession of his was gripping, I suspect, driven more out of fear than curiosity.

For however EBH projects himself to his public, whatever he may claim to be as an entity, beneath the false image, a shiny facade, for EBH then, as he is now, is but a frightened, insecure, paranoid, speck of matter, consumed by an inherent, unshakeable, bone chilling fear of the unknown.

At the root of this gripping fear, is his obsession with his very origin. Simply stated, EBH does not know how he came to be on his rock; it is essentially the human version of the age old question: What came first? The chicken or the egg? This single conundrum will find him topsy turvy and eventually in a dead stick, spiraling tailspin. A tailspin he may never recover from.

So driven is he about learning where he came from, why he is here, on this floating space rock, who placed him on this rock, his inability to control his own mind does him in.

Instead of accepting reality, he allows his mind to conjure up, fabricate, create delusional scenarios of his coming to be Earthbound. 

The tragedy then is, despite possessing the capacity to grasp reality, despite possessing the ability to rationalize his situation and understand his origin was inconsequential, at the very least, a priority to his existence.

For the facts, the truths, the sequence of events, the interventions of whoever, whatever, which led to, not only his, but all creatures coming to co-exist on Earth, whether it involved a magical, mystical  glorious creator of all things great and small, whether it involved a life form creating celestial big bang, whether it involved the biological evolution of a single celled organism that first threaded water, then walked ashore, or whether it involved a maniacal space traveler named Scotty, knowledgeable in transporter technology. That information, needless to say, has never been, is not now, nor will ever be accessible/available to an EBH that, instead of exhibiting rational thought, responsibility, some measure of level headedness, presented only as an undisciplined, reckless, irresponsible simpleton.

 A quick reflection on this creature, this Earthbound humanoid curiosity. 

EBH is but one of many, many interesting creatures, lifeforms calling this floating space rock home. And while it is generally acknowledged that he possesses the ability to reason, it is also generally accepted that he tends to grossly misuse that skill, and in many instances, not use it at all.

Also, while he is only one of an unknown number of species that benefits from the ability to “think,” he favors an affinity towards using creativity and imagination, both surreal and illogical processes, almost to a fault.

Not much else is known about his existence at all, other than he may or may not be the only Earthbound creature who possesses an independent, personalized, individualized conscious, what he has come to call a soul.

Important note, the EBH fancies himself as the sole reigning, master of his floating rock, but  only because no other humanoid lifeform(s) has/have presented to prove him hopelessly wrong, or challenge his declaration of supremacy (to date, that is).

This is interesting because the EBH is one of the most physically, emotionally, biologically, and chemically sensitive, and therefore fragile, creatures on his rock. Millions upon millions of EBHs terminate annually due to physical trauma, a myriad of diseases and physiological disorders, and sheer self-destruction through a myriad of ingenious methods including ingestion, injection, and inhalation of life ending substances. Millions upon millions more are not terminated, but permanently disabled, rendered useless to society. 

But the most fascinating and prevalent method of terminating millions of EBHs is with high velocity muskets. These pop guns project a metal ball that tears through human flesh like it was paper, splintering bones, and damaging major, life sustaining internal organs.

EBH on EBH violence.

And so, it’s with this brief introduction that I hope to offer you a thought provoking break from drinking establishments, iron man work out sessions, funny cat videos. I trust, as loyal and dedicated “friends,” colleagues, family, that you’ll not only read, but share my words with your connections and circles. Remember, we all enjoy different tastes;  what may not be your cup of tea, just may be honey to another. Each new posting will offer an aggressive prospective of this suffering, disillusioned, misguided creature. Please stay with me.

The Unification of Global Societies 

Okay. Here’s the official DhesBar Publications take on all this Russian/U.S. cyber war hacking controversy.

 First, understand that I arrive at conclusions from the perspective of one who has stood on the front lines, in the Western Pacific, the Mediterrean, and on the shores of Japan, eyes fixed towards the Koreas. I do not now, nor have I ever relied on a talking head from Fox, CNN, ABC, etcetera, for my information, or untrustworthy propaganda. Therefore, I hope you will find this entry not only issue appropriate, but thought provoking as well. I strive not to spew out rehashed, canned news releases/opinions like some burned out, shamed newscasters do; I try to instill a sense of involvement and even ownership on the part of my reader. For what happens globally is not “their” problem, it’s “our” problem as well.

So, consider first and foremost that we, every single one of us is now and forever will be Earth bound humans. No matter our so called races, cultures, ethnicities, no matter our bordered country of origin, abstract and fluid as those borders are, we the people are (presently) nothing more than expendable pawns, driven, pitted against one another by power crazed, greedy, often unqualified “world leaders,” many of those self appointed. These political machines clash in deadly, costly, senseless, seemingly never ending  territorial struggles in sole quest of more personal wealth, fame, notoriety, more oil, more gold, more real estate. The names of the countries actively jockeying for global supermacy change with the tides, but presently the top three are Russia, China, and the United States. Engaged in a pseudo conflict, alledgedly over concern of the Syrian people, the Russian and U.S. governments have collectively, essentially leveled cities and towns, not only murdering untold numbers of innocents, but driving millions more people into chaos. All the while, the citizens of both the U.S. and Russia clamor over deterioating condition in their respective countries, both in terms of failing infrastructures (like collapsing freeway bridges), and social/economic conditions (like healthcare and jobs). This will remain to be the worsening global situation as long as citizens, of all nations, tolerate such inept, irresponsible leadership. 

The alternative is clear; the time has come for the inevitable unification of all Earthbound societies. Yes, world peace is achievable; there can be an end to constant fighting and warring, the massacre of millions, the displacement of millions, the creation of wastelands where cities once stood. You see, where a handful of self focused world leaders fail, millions of strong, solidly bonded citizens can succeed. The survival of our global societies then, falls on the societies themselves. And it falls on the peoples, the citizens of the top nations to initiate this unification process. Without the support of the masses, out of control leaders are rendered powerless. Weapons of dispicable destruction will be lowered, and tools of global cooperation raised. Hatreds based on, founded on ignorance and false, subjugating, hypocritical   mythological doctrines and insanity must cease;  acceptance of the fact that we are all Earthbound brothers and sisters, trusted stewards of this planet must take hold. 

Yes, the hands of the few can level a city, but it is the minds, the hands, the ideas, the love and spirit  of cooperation on the part of millions that will ultimately provide our decendents peace and prosperity. We the global people are all we have, if we fail, then we are doomed, and we are doomed by our own complacency, not the hands of any lunatic.

A supportive anectdote to the above. In the summer of 1975, I, and two shipmates, wandered the streets of Hong Kong. We made our way into a cozy little drinking establishment that was alive with familiar (American) music and plenty of laughter. On reaching the bar, we were greeded warmly by the barkeep, a stout man who also sported raised eyebrows at our presence. We noticed we were also drawing a few glances from the partying clientel. The barkeep politely inform us that we were in the company of predominantly Russian sailors. But, we were not asked to leave; we were not denied service. We were simply advised. On glancing once again towards the partying group, one of the Russian sailors raised his glass in respectful salute. I will not divulge the rest of this story other than to say we stayed and enjoyed a fun, enlightening evening. 

You see, people are people; all have dreams, all have families, all seek peace and prosperity. Not only continued prosperity for the 1%, but prosperity for all citizens. Personally? I could give a shit what was in HRCs emails. All I know is I didn’t read a single one, and I’m pretty sure most busy voters didn’t either. Americans voted for DT out of frustration and anger with the do nothing, accomplish nothing, improve nothing Washington estabishment, not because anything Valdemier did, said, or hacked. So, I’m pleading with you to wake up to the truth. Slap your own consciousness around and stop believing the deceptions. We need citizens, not chattel. Join your global brothers and sisters and reclaim your world.

The Elusive Woman’s Vote? Easy!

I curiously listen to the chatter as to who is “earning” the woman’s vote. Personally? I don’t see the issue. The candidate that is truly and sincerely seeking the woman’s vote is the one who is strong enough to openly, publicly, during a debate or Townhall gathering, on the street corner of any city in any state, Blue or Red, stand and loudly, without reservation, proclaim the long debunk Patriarchal Social System dead and buried, loudly, openly and publicly, without reservation, stand and proclaim the misogynistic church’s influence over our government dead, stand and loudly, openly and publicly, without reservation, proclaim all women emqancipated, equal under the Constitution of this country, especially under the 14th Amendment. In “freeing” women, in liberating over half of the American workforce from senseless subjugation and repression, they can then, and only then, proclaim themselves as pro-woman. Until that happens, they’re just playing centuries old political games: appease her, compliment her, use her, then push her aside. So, let’s see  which candidate has the courage to stand up against the misogynistic right, the courage to stand tall for the the American woman.q

An Open Apology to Millennials

Dear Millennials,
First, please accept a truly sincere and heart felt apology, an apology offered on behalf of all teachers who had opportunity (responsibility?) to instill upon you truths and factual information regarding this society we were tasked with preparing you for, to not only exist within, but assume leadership of. We all had opportunity, but so many of us failed you by feeding you instead, false, distorted, exaggerated, and far too often, straight out lies. We denied you the education that would have, should have sent you forth fully informed, totally aware, with the foundational knowledgeable every American requires, is entitled to. Had we provided you this knowledge, you would have left us with a better understanding of not only the opportunities and challenges, but dangers and social obstacles you are surely encountering today. Young ladies, you especially were duped. Sadly, you were simply prepared for a life of servitude to a Master, whether that be a corporate master, or domestic master, or both. You see, America’s educational system is designed to produce a particular citizen. That’s why it didn’t matter that some of your classmates could not read very well, if at all, on graduation; or, if they could  perform basic math. As long as they put in the seat time, and you know exactly what I’m talking about, and “earned” their credits; as long as they received a diploma, worthless that it was, they were sufficiently prepared to enter the all important work force. Our public education system excels only at producing laborers for corporate giants. What I’m trying to explain is, instead of serving you, instead of ensuring your future through providing you a sound, meaningful education, we served a political/corporate  establishment that dictates you be prepared for continued social manipulation and continued subjugation; for in being such, you assure their future. And today, in part due to our failure, you face decades of continued servitude to that corporate establishment, and continued subjugation under that government. Now, before moving on, I will interject this, while we were the teachers of record, we were only in compliance with state mandated curricula, and in many cases federal mandates. This is not an excuse for our failure, only a statement of fact. Still, and despite the compliance issue, we could have interjected enough to properly and effectively guide and direct you. We, cannot shirk the blame that is ours to bear; we need to acknowledge and accept our part in the injustice done each and every one of you. Well, let me restate part of that; you do in fact face continued servitude to corporate giants, but you don’t have to endure it. You see, you only have to say enough is enough to the current social structure, where the top 1% controls you. And, you can enough is enough to the current social structure that clings to the belief that man is in charge. Incidentally, the latter is known as the Patriarchal Social System, just one of those critical points we failed to teach you about, at least properly. You can say enough is enough to all, and say yes to a new social order that acknowledges this country as a multicultural nation, affording each of those cultures respect, acknowledges that gender equally is not negotiable, especially when it pertains to employment and pay and personal health. A new social order under which all citizens are protected under our Constitution. Ah, the Constitution! Another important point not properly and thoroughly covered in class. You see, the Constitution when written, did not include slaves; maybe your Government teacher touched on that point, but probably didn’t mention that, at that point in time, women were considered slaves, both by government and the church. That’s why today women are not entitled to equal pay; that’s why today, women are not included under the Constitution, especially the 14th Amendment. That’s why today, a woman is  still subjugated, humiliated, degraded, mutilated and murdered, by her men, by her government, and by her clerics. You see, the church calls women (yes, calls, present tense) the very gateway to hell; a thing God does not, will never acknowledge. Now, before you take those words to heart, please listen to this. The men who wrote those, and many, many like derogatory comments about women, historically, and continue to write them today, were/are frustrated, misogynists. Kooks. Sociopaths. Delusional creeps. So, their  comments, all of them, are of course meaningless. Sadly, and here’s where the danger factor comes in, other psychopaths do listen and believe these words. These are the men, the politicians, the clerics who hurt women, degrade and humiliate women, who abuse, beat, and murder women. I keep including politicians, and I will continue to include them throughout this letter, only because politicians (at least far to many of them) are in bed with the clerics as far as subjugating and demoralizing women. It’s the politicians who write and pass the legislation that denies women human and civil rights. It’s the politicians who wrote the legislation that dictated what size stick a man could beat women with, and where he could place his blows. And while,  under the state, she is somewhat protected today, not liberated, not emancipated, still not an equal to man, still not included under the Constitution, only somewhat protected, the church has not changed it’s position on women at all. As far as the church is concerned, women today are still, and always will be the witch, the ungodly beast that should not be allowed to even live. A logical question you may be asking right now is, “Why? Why are women regarded with such hatred?” And to that question I have no answer. All I can offer is only a  plausible guess. Man fears woman. He learned long ago that she was his superior, both genetically and intellectually. So, he dominates her, controls her the only way he knows how, through physical intimidation, acts of violence, and torture and murder. As for politicians? They continue to subjugate her through mounds of legislation. But there is something else. Probably the most concerning and telling fact as to woman’s true place in this sophisticated, 21st Century society. You see, today, in this “land of the free, home of the brave,” “one nation under God,” the world’s most powerful nation, the marketing of women, yes, the marketing, the buying and selling of women is a billion dollar industry. In fact, as you read these words, and untold number of young women, Millennials, like yourself, are being “shipped” across the country, freighted on our highways and byways right along with your favorite soft drinks and vegetables. I say women, but almost half of the cargo are only girls, children, and since none of these women are recyclable, then they are disposal. Consider this well known fact; women were ordered, months ago, per size, color, ethnicity, and yes, age, to fulfill the anticipated demand in Santa Clara, California, the city that hosted Super Bowl 50.  I’m sure you remember this lesson from your economics class, the infamous supply and demand rule of economics? And believe me, all requests were be filled, regardless of age. How is this possible? Gain, simple economics. Because the dollar is more powerful than any law, and any rule pertaining to humanity. Nothing is denied, if the price is right. In that the trafficking of women and children for sexual purposes is a billion dollar industry, greedy, unscrupulous, slime bag politicians see nothing but green when it comes to selling even there own wives and daughters. The color green even corrupts those sworn to “protect and serve.” After all, they’re just women. So, now you may be asking, “Is there a cure for this ailing social system? Can this cesspool of corruption and decadence be cleaned up?” Well, as a matter of fact, that question actually brings us to the whole point of this letter; yes! There is a very real, very plausible solution to our sick and decaying country. And that solution is you! Yup, that’s right, after telling you we jipped you out of an education, after telling you we blinded you from the truth, after telling you we essentially set you up like a pawn in a chess game, I’m now going to tell you it’s up to you to save the country. Or at least initiate the save. And, before you roll your eyes (remember, I had you in class), it just so happens you have a launch pad to establish yourselves as the force to be contended with, the future for this country. As it happens, there is in the formative stage, a social revolution intended to counter the above mentioned social fiasco; a social revolution that many Millennials are embracing as their own. This is a sociopolitical movement, designed to purge the sickness that is the Patriarchal Social System, purge the archaic, misogynistic church doctrines from our governments, purge the control and dominance of the few over the multitude. And while this revolution has been declared by one of the presidential candidates, Millennials are universal, and could/should carry this revolution into the halls of every political party. Personally? I would love to see you establish a totally new, unique party. Again, there is still much danger among the wicked, hopelessly corrupt established parties. You have strong, sharp minds, you have compassion, and you have consciousness. Investigate. Deliberate. Formulate. Learn. But more importantly unite. Make your decisions based on facts, not folklore. I say learn (you should have at least been told learning was a lifetime endeavor), and by that I mean, learn from our despicable past. Learn what is not only good for you, but what’s good for your fellow man, all of them, not only a select few. Learn what’s good for the future of your country. Many of today’s politicians are lost. Others are only blinded by the prospect of power and money. Some are virtually still living in what might as well be the Dark Ages, the Stone-Age; their thinking is not conducive to Millennials and the generations to follow you. This is your country, seize it. So, do you understand your importance now? Do you understand your worth? Can you comprehend your role, your power? You need to stand up in unison and let the boom of your collective voices shake the halls of Congress. Rattle the White House. No one can deny you any longer; this is your time, and, I for one will be standing proud, watching you.
Sincerely,

Pornography and the American Women and Child, Part 4 in a Series

porn3I am going to open this post with a very clear, direct statement that could be argued, will be argued, but no argument would/will stand against the evidence and supporting documentation behind it.

Pornography is not now, never has been, never will be entertainment. Pornography is not, by any stretch of the imagination, artistic expression. Pornography is blatant, exploitation, degradation, humiliation, and criminal violation of women that communicates a loud, menacing, continuous message to all women, globally. A message of hate. Any person who is presently engaged in its production, or acting as an accessory to its production through financial contributions/investment, or by legislative support, political sanctions, needs to be prosecuted.

The very idea that the Federal Government, your legislators, your Congressmen, your Senators, your sitting President, your Supreme Court Justices, all or most with wives and daughters of their own, would protect and defend pornographers under the articles of our Constitution, while unconscionably not only denying, but persecuting women under that same document is beyond comprehension.

This turning of their proverbial backs to American women, the selling of American women for monetary gain, the heartless sacrifice of more than half of the population of this country, including children, only emphasizes the sad truth regarding the direction this country is taking, in fact has been on for far to long.

That people, at any level, would participate in this kind of barbarous activity, is mind-boggling.

Well, beyond comprehension that is unless you consider that pornography is a 10 billion plus business, in this country; and the trafficking of women for sexual purposes is reported to gross up to 32 billion globally. Incidentally, pornographers have a lobby in the hollow halls of Congress, and billions of dollars can buy a lot of influence. And Joe the Plumber, and everyone else will soon be able to trade in the flesh of women via Wall Street (many believe this is happening now).

Money aside, let’s talk about the men involved.

The producers, the directors, even those on the sidelines acting as accessories, the politicians, the investors, those concerned only with the money factor, are not necessarily misogynist; these men love women and the money they make for them. Greed and profits at any cost to anyone, and the lost of anything, like self-respect, is just business.

But, in order to make that oh so desired and precious dollar, these people need misogynist to engage the women in what we’ll call a convincing and attracting way.

I am going to explain something before moving on, something that many of our young have either never been taught, considering this kind of education comes from the streets and not from parents, but nonetheless something that is essential to their health and well being.

Sexual intercourse, copulation, between a man and a woman, is a natural act. The male body is designed to engage with the female body to allow procreation; procreation, of course, is the continuation of life, humanity. However, as with so many, many other natural events, man has managed to corrupt even this natural event into something from which to benefit from financially.

What’s even more amazing (alarming? scary?) is the number of human beings, upright on two feet, walking, functioning (at least physically) human beings who, for whatever reason, not only watch, but pay to watch a natural act performed.

This single disturbing fact alone speaks volumes as to the emotional stability/instability, the psychological fragility, the personal insecurity and lack of self respect, lack of integrity, and the total corruptibility of American men.

I have conducted extensive research and data gathering in addressing violence against women; a considerable amount of that data supports/alludes to man’s overall conditioning, under the Patriarchal System, to control and dominate women, even if in a docile relationship. Other men, those who subscribe to hardcore, extreme pornography suffer from concerning types of emotional disturbance and/or psychosis. The later issues manifest as a result of child abuse, child neglect, abandonment, rape/molestation, TBI, and a myriad of other physical, emotional traumatic episodes.

But a significant number of porn watchers are pegged as closet homosexuals. These men are restrained, repressed, denied by such social stigmas as homo-hatred, homo-phobics, homo-bashers. They exist in a life of fear and denial. Therefore, they are forced to remain in their closets, denied the lifestyle they crave, the lifestyle they know exist for them to protect a more sociably acceptable persona; worse, they are forced to sleep with a woman they actually despise and hate to touch.

These men don’t watch porn because the woman is tall, curvy and endowed; these men don’t watch porn because the woman smiles up to him with that “I want you, come hither” gleam in her eye. They watch porn to watch the man perform.

It has long been reported that porn today is produced for the homosexual man. Consider that an increasing amount of porn no longer even features the vagina in the starring role, rather penetration is anally. Consider that an increasing amount of porn today involves multiple men and one female, the classic gang bang. The other men, while awaiting their turn to engage the woman, stand posing, masturbating to the delight of the homosexual man.

A homosexual man can be caught with this porn by his wife; he can invite his friends and coworkers to watch with him. There is a woman in the mix. But there’s more.

There is a growing trend in pornography, a highly concerning trend that only reinforces my assertion that Earthbound man, archaic man, a being that apparently cannot, for whatever reason(s), whether they be psychological in nature, indicate genetic corruption, hint at evolutionary stagnation, or simply be a matter of his brain having reached its maximum capacity to process data logically, whatever the reason, it’s causing man to regress, not advance.

There is an insurmountable amount of evidence to this claim, which will be raised in coming posts, but for now, I only want to address man’s growing fascination with physical dominance and brutality. When displaying this towards his fellow man, it results in death, and is almost always associated with the attainment of money, territory, or power. When he unleashes this violence against women, it is usually associated with personal gratification and pleasure.

If you doubt this is happening, simply watch the news. And I’m not only speaking of the events of the Middle East and Europe, with the horrific accounts of rapes and sexual assaults;wars have historically found women as prizes and trophy. I’m also speaking of the escalating number of heinous acts of violence and human degradation right here on American streets.

How is this manifesting in porn? There has been always been that element of violence in pornography. Again, to appease, satisfy, and hold those true misogynist and women hating, frustrated homosexuals, porn long ago slipped away from the comfortable Avocado green couches and shag carpeting of the 1960s and entered the realm of extreme gang bangs, public humiliation, and mock rapes of school girls. Today, it’s estimated that roughly 90% of porn involves some form of violence directed towards the woman, and when I say violence, I mean out and out physical torture and brutality that defies justification (and lack of prosecution).

To appease even the hardest of the hard misogynist, Snuff films are produced in which the woman is depicted as not only a horrendous torture victim, but a murder victim as well.

This negates Merriam-Webster’s definition of porn: movies, pictures, magazines, etc., that show or describe naked people or sex in a very open and direct way in order to cause sexual excitement. The latest trend adopted by pornographers involves the no holds barred, brutal physical punishment of the woman that, again, defys it’s protection under the even most basic laws of this alleged in God we trust, Jesus loving land of hypocrites and woman haters.

The latest trend in sexual excitement and stimulation is a little something referred to in the porn industry as the Donkey Punch.

The Donkey Punch is the latest catch phrase used when a woman is being physically, brutally, sexually assaulted on film for the world to enjoy. In the course of enduring, essentially, sodomy, the woman, the female actress, is taking punches to the back of the head, brutal, hard, closed fist punches; she is taking punches to her legs, her torso; she is being pulled around by her hair, spat on, gagged with fingers, and kicked.

Now, if produced in a Chatsworth studio, America’s celebrated porn capitol, the actress may stop the assault if the beating becomes excessive; but, the true problems of pornography evolve when street pornographers produce truly extreme films.

These are not professional producers. These are not professional actresses. These are the human traffickers and these are the millions of missing children of this country.

One critic, an arm chair connoisseur, on watching one of these basement productions, described it as watching a street beat down mixed in with sex. He describes the girl as nothing more than a punching bag, taking brutal hits to the head, body-blows and plenty of facial slapping. This critic’s favorite part of the film? When the male took the woman’s hand and began to beat her with her own fist.

In another case, a 15 year old high school girl was brutally gang raped by three boys and one man for over two hours. The rapist violated her with objects and physically beat her during those two hours. How does this story fit? The gang rape took place at a school dance, on an outdoor bench and watched by some twenty people. Live porn. The girl was left, unconscious, kicked under the bench to die alone.

And so, I’ll close this post by restating my opening statement followed by a quote by one of the churches most celebrated and prolific writers of doctrines and scriptures.

Pornography is not now, never has been, never will be entertainment. Pornography is not, by any stretch of the imagination, artistic expression. Pornography is blatant, exploitation, degradation, humiliation, and criminal violation of women that communicates a loud, menacing, continuous message to all women, globally. A message of hate; and our legislators sanction and protect it, benefit from it monetarily.

Tertullian, described women this way: “I,1,2 God’s judgment on this sex [that is women] lives on in our age; the guilt necessarily lives on as well. You are the Devil’s gateway; you are the unsealer of that tree; you are the first foresaker of the divine law; you are the one who persuaded him whom the Devil was not brave enough to approach; you so lightly crushed the image of God, the man Adam; because of your punishment, that is, death, even the Son of God had to die.

The American Women and the Trans-Atlantic African Slave, Part 3 in a Series

The first slave ship is recorded to have docked at Jamestown in 1619. One Sir John Hawkins was at the helm. Captain’s Hawkins ship? Why, The Good Ship Jesus, of course.white

It is not clear how many slaves Captain Hawkins brought ashore that day, but one thing is very clear. As the first slave disembarked, he fell to his knees at the whip of his new Master.

Ah. But why are we talking about the Trans-Atlantic African Slave Trade in conjunction with the call for emancipation of women?

Here we go.

As the Slave Trader took his whip to the back of that first African slave, understand that his whip was not new leather. In fact, that whip was well broken in. Because you see, long before that first African slave felt his master’s whip, a woman was on the losing end of that whip, and worse.

You see, man perfected the art of slavery, the art of human domination, the art of psychological control and intimidation of another human being on the very backs of women.

Missed that part in history class did you? No. You didn’t. Teachers do not teach you all you need to know, only what the establishment wants you to know.

You see, it’s important that America’s young understands, believes, that women wholeheartedly accepted their subjugation, repression, and subordination. It is important, to men, that young women accepting that their rightful, God given place in life, in society, and in the church is at the foot of man. Their masters.

For as the African slave was disembarking ships by the thousands, American women were well into their servitude.

Here’s a fun fact for you. The court ordained the plantation owner as lord and master over his stable of slaves. He could punish as he saw fit; he could kill as needed/warranted. He was the law and order over his stable; a stable that included his wife and children.

Collectively, this group was happily (or not) referred to as the plantation owner’s familia, of which he was the head, just as today the man is considered as the head of the family.

Back to the American women, because she was watching the developing situation, and she was growing more and more concerned.

In April, 1633, Anne Hutchinson, a woman ahead of her time, an aggressive woman who didn’t know her place, though it had been pointed out to her many, many times, spoke up against John Wilson, the then leader of the church.

Her attack on Wilson soon enough found her labeled an Antinomian, that is, someone who dares question the laws of man; but what she actually did was counter the Puritan religious opinions of the clerics, more importantly, the head cleric.

Of course, she was tried for heresy and expelled from the colony; fortunately, that was all.

But the discord regarding the ideologies within the church only grew and grew. Women, following Hutchinson’s lead, were becoming very vocal. (Note: Some credit Ann Hutchinson with initiating the feminist movement.)

In April, 1690, probably having tolerated enough from women, probably feeling their strength in numbers, the church began what is accepted as the most notorious and hideous assault on women in the history of such assaults, and there have been many.

Consider briefly these facts. Hitler’s Nazi murderers are credited with six million plus unthinkable murders. Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge is credited with roughly two point five million murders in the infamous Cambodian Killing Fields, what can only described as genocidal. Japan’s Prince Asaka is scored with over half a million Chinese (mostly civilian women and children) who were brutally mutilated and slaughtered in the streets of Nanjing alone. But the number of lives, women’s lives, that God ordained clerics unconscionably took (and some believe continue to take today) in their phony witch hunts (femicide) are said to fall in the tens of millions.

Hitler took himself out before he could be captured; his ovens were shut off. Pol Pot was charged with war crimes; his death was recorded as a heart attack, but highly suspected as a suicide. Prince Asaka was recalled to Japan in shame. He was charged with war crimes, but was granted immunity, as he was a member of the imperial family, by General Douglas MacArthur (politics always before justice). But here is the kicker, not one charge, not one indictment is recorded against any member of the church in connection with the millions upon millions of women’s murders, which included traumatic dismemberment, the pouring of hot oil into orifices, including vaginal, and of course the infamous burnings at the stake, and the dipping (alive) into vats of boiling oil, all in a very public, very ceremonial, very celebratory forum.

Mission accomplished. Women were successfully repressed.

In the eyes of man, now well situated in his Patriarchal Social System, women were now less than slaves. In the eyes of the church, they were officially sub-human, the very gateway to hell, a creature not even God acknowledged.

But, how could this be so in America? A new land, with a new Constitution that clearly stated “with liberty and justice for all?”

That’s an easy one. The Constitution, when drafted, applied to Americans, not slaves; and, if you’re sticking with me, you’ll recall that the women and children were considered part of the familia, the slave count.

In actuality, liberty from the English Crown was a man vs man thing. For other than the taxation thing (money), political and religious doctrines pretty much remained the same.

One of the biggest influences on American politics is still one Sir William Blackstone.

Blackstone was a very influential British judge whose published position on woman was that they needed to be dominated by men. He held that men had the legal right to beat women in order to keep them in check. He called this, The power of chastisement.

Women in the new country, just as in the old, would be subordinate and submissive; women would know their rightful place in society. And for those that refused, by being disobedient of her man, arrogant in tone, the local governments had in place guidelines by which the man was expected to execute his responsibilities as husband, and punish her. These guidelines were detailed, right down to the size of switch he could us, and where on her body he could place his blows.

Fun fact time; even today the American Supreme Court quotes this hegemonic masculinity proponent, this misogynist, Blackstone, in their court decisions.

But Sir Blackstone wasn’t the only old country jurist who came to the new land.

In 1905, a Texas appellate court overturned the conviction of a man found guilty of assault and attempted rape of his wife citing a court ruling issued by one Lord Hale, in England, in the year 1500.

Lord Matthew Hale, in case you were wondering, was just another English misogynist jurist the colonist couldn’t quite break from. Lord Matthew Hale. The man detested rape, but detested women even more. Essentially called them all liars that could not be trusted; he also liked presiding over witch trials.

His misogynist rulings, which essentially mocked, intimidated, and put the fear of God into women, were still being quoted in American rape trials up through the 1970’s; probably still are in some parts of the country.

Why is it important to mention these British jurists and their rulings? Because these archaic, misogynistic men influence rape cases in 21st Century American courts. And, that’s why rape prosecution in America today isn’t taken as seriously as it should be.

I love hearing about the glorious Harvard Law School School grads, and all the other haughty taughty so called top tier law schools grads, but it seems to me not one law school in America has produced a single American lawyer. These schools have only managed to produce clones of English jurist.

I often wonder what a truly American judicial system would look like.

Until that happens, sadly, American women will continue to be repressed, and subjugated, and degraded, humiliated, and yes, beaten, just like Master Blackstone and Master Hale said they should be.

I know what you’re thinking. The African slave realized emancipation. They’re free (somewhat). Why can’t women realize emancipation?

And in there lies the connection between the American woman and the Trans-Atlantic African Slave. It was actually the Anti-Slavery Movement that afforded women the opportunity to (finally) raise their voices and establish themselves as a movement, a cause for emancipation.

The Emancipation Proclamation was issued on January 1, 1863, by President Abraham Lincoln; if you note the Women’s Rights Movement Timeline of Events offered below (#13), you will also note it begins in 1848.

The unfortunate reality of this post is, while the Trans-Atlantic African Slave was able to gain emancipation just 244 years after that first ship docked in 1619, women are still fighting for their emancipation.

Once more, thank you for reading, and I hope you come back for the next post in this series in which I will explore at least one reason woman remains repressed; why legislators turn their backs to her. It’s a money thing called: America’s porn industry.

Patriarchy In The 21st Century, Part 2 in a Series

The United States of America is established under what is known as the Patriarchal Social System. A social system that you’ll find elaborate definitions for, but I’ll cut through the fat and give it to you straight: The Patriarchal Social System gives all the power of the man. The power to control his home. The power to run the state. The power to administrate the federal government, the court system, and legislature. Simply put, under the Patriarchal Social System, man rules.

I have provided some works cited for you to delved deeper into this Archaic social systno patriarchalem, but here’s the gist of it all. Our society is well into the 21st Century, yet, we (collectively as a people) feel the need to cling to a Stone-Aged social system that does not provide equality to the citizenry. Ironically? Then we ask, “Why don’t we enjoy equality as a people?”

Woman once stood as an equal with man, considered an integral part of the social structure. But as the social horizon was changing, a myriad of factors was forcing woman to remain closer and closer to the home. The man was becoming more and more aggressive in defending not only his homestead, but the village.

The woman took on a more supportive role.

But that was just life. A struggle. Requiring team work. The husband and wife team could have overcome their specialties in life, but that was not the case.

Enter the perverted and misogynistic cult.

Before I continue, I’m going to take a minute to explain some things here only because I understand many of you love your church, love your God, love your Jesus, Allah, Buddha, YHWH, Elohim, Jehovah, Brahman, et cetera, et cetera, believe me, I could go on and on. But this post isn’t about religion, that’s for another day, this post is about the insidious belief that man is in charge of this planet.

But, just as Patriarchy found man in dominant authority, the situation was further complicated, drastically, by the intervention of another male dominated, misogynistic influence, itself a political entity (not a religious one).

Men began to adhere to a false, exaggerated, distorted (psychotic?) belief in their ability to communicate with God. Moses did it in 1400 BCE, why not them? (Quick footnote: The very word God was not even coined until the mid-1800 CE; you do the math. And even then it was not associated with the Creator.) But here is the gist of this line, no man, no where, at no time, has been in direct communication with a supreme creator, per research and investigation.

To date, no human being has, and it is most likely no human being will ever speak face to face with the any supreme entity for any cause related to mankind. Yet, many men began to claim such association with God and established for themselves an Order, and a venue, their temples, through which to gain influence and power in the developing (struggling) societies.

The goals of these self-ordained clerics were to gain control of citizens through fear tactics, threats, and the publication of false, intimidating doctrines and scriptures through which they would make believers bow to their perceived power and influential connection to the Creator. They also wanted to possess land and money.

Now all of this would have been harmless had it not been for the misogynistic factor.

Misogyny is defined as the hatred or dislike of women or girls. Sadly, this was one of foundational themes of the developing, organizing church. So much so, within their doctrines and scriptures, they called for her death at the hand of men.

“You shall not allow the witch to live,” was the order from the pulpit.

The resulting, unprecedented, sweeping slaughter of women is incomprehensible. The numbers are estimated as high as nine million plus, and that was only at the end of the Inquisitions.

In that the order still exist today, is still preached today from pulpits around the world, is still viable today, can be found in every holy book in print, means many men still believe it is their God given right, their duty to the church, to abide and beat, torture, even murder women.

Now, as idiotic, as insane as that may sound to you. Consider this; the clerics were so adamant in their desire to control the populations, they even had three clerics produce a book, The Malleus Maleficarum. This “how to” book details how a man should hunt, trap, and kill a witch. (Important Note: There is no such things as witches other than the cute ones running around on Halloween. Never have been, never will be. They are a physical impossibility. And no, there is not mystical, magical evil power that offers them the ability to fly on a broom.)

So, the Patriarchal System, the influence of the cult, soon had man believing himself to be inherently superior to essentially everything, women, beast, nature, even other weaker men.

But that was then; this is now.

Here is my point. This is 2016. We are well into the 21st Century, yet we are still bound to archaic, Stone Aged thinking, doctrines, long proven debunk religious scriptures, and our women are still persecuted as witches.

Consider these choice quotes from some of the most revered religious front-men:

  • Woman is a temple built over a sewer.Tertullian
  • The word and works of God is quite clear, that women were made either to be wives or prostitutes. —Martin Luther, Reformer (1483-1546)
  • The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians. —Pat Robertson, Southern Baptist leader (1930–)
  • No gown worse becomes a woman than the desire to be wise [educated]. –Martin Luther, Reformer (1483-1546)

Unbelievably, a concerning large number men today cling to those ridiculous words as if they actually meant something.

Here’s what I want you to walk away with from this post. And I’ll launch this with some good news. Recently, we heard the long overdue announcement that military women could now serve in virtually any, and every capacity within the armed forces. And that, gives me cause to state this:

The Patriarchal Social System is dead in America.

It’s time for man to take a dose of his own medicine; but, that pill is going to be a choker.

Oh, many, many men are clinging, hugging, weeping over the corpse as if it would somehow rise like their beloved Lazarus; but no.

Here’s another important fact to know; as per the 2010 Census, women now have the edge over men in this country. The stage is set, woman has been given the cue, she must take that cue now.

There will be no more confining women to the home; there will be no more condemning her as inferior by design, a thing of no social use other than to be a servant to man, good only as a bearer of children, a concubine. There will no more legislating her medical rights. She will no longer have to work for less than the man. She is on the verge of equality.

The practice of subjugation, humiliation, degradation, and enslavement is over. The winds of change are blowing.

Thank you for reading,and I hope you come back for the next post in this series in which I will explain what women and the black man have in common (you don’t want to miss that one!).
