Bush - A Crazed Mattoid

by SARTRE Tuesday, Nov. 11, 2003 at 6:09 PM

Insanity in individuals is something rare -- but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs it is the rule.

Bush - A Crazed Matt...

"Insanity in individuals is something rare -- but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs it is the rule." -- Friedrich Nietzsche

Mattoids ruling an Empire

The "global democratic revolution" is the center piece of the Bush presidency. While a revolutionary spirit was the focus that moved our Founding Fathers to break with the Crown, today's all powerful imperial empire resides in the United States. King George II says he is on a hallowed mission to save the Middle East from themselves. Democracy will be the cure and the medicine of approved regime changes will be forced down their throats. Women will be made participatory citizens and the shahs of Islamic extremism will be tamed into submissive puppets. Ah, the 'Pox Americana' spreads the virus of emancipation with the fervor of an old time religion.

But what kind of faith moves this evangelism? An all consuming belief in the superiority of Democracy has certainly served America well! We have unelected and unaccountable federal judges decreeing that babies can be squashed, when a self centered tart gets a headache. That's certainly consistent with liberation of the defenseless . . . Spreading this practice will have the benefit of curtailing the government schooling dominion. This will leave more money to fuel the occupation seminaries as conversion to a higher order is enforced.

It should be obvious that we can no longer tolerate dictatorships that pray to the East. How can you indulge weird talking Muslims who don't fish at Kennebunkport during the summer? Exporting acceptable practices through an exchange program might well turn those mirages into seas of good fishing. Trawling the dunes and sands would be a good exercise to teach the skills for netting flounders.

Transforming the Middle East would be a central staging ground for finishing the assignment of a New World make over. Just imagine, Bush will create a fantasy planet that would make John Lennon proud.

Imagine there's no countries,

It isn't hard to do,

Nothing to kill or die for,

No religion too,

Imagine all the people living life in peace...

All those contentious countries will be provided with THE script for constitutional governance and the rule of law. There will be no need to place your trust in a higher power, since that force; will be the deliverance. Democracy the Desired Doctrine! That's the answer, no need to look for any other promise.

Bush portrayed himself as a champion of liberty setting out a "forward strategy of freedom in the Middle East". Hark, Bush speaks:

"Iraqi democracy will succeed and that success will send forth the news from Damascus to Tehran that freedom can be the future of every nation".

"The establishment of a free Iraq at the heart of the Middle East will be a watershed event in the global democratic revolution."

Don't you feel all warm inside - safe and secure - with such leadership? Woodrow Wilson taught his course well, the Bush clan has the drill down, and we will all reap the aftermath of the generosity from internationalism. Forget the lessons that the British Empire learned in India, the endowment of the last superpower will subdue any disenchanted tribes. The Middle East will be transformed into a Bastar district, a "melting pot" of races and cultures. Oh yes, this model works so good at home that we can hope to have Jessie Jackson bargain affirmative action for the Kurds. Look how well democracy operates, shake downs can fund a sons political career! Hey, the community voted, so the will of the people must be prevailing.

Just wonder what would happen when Baath Party remnants want to be put on the ballot? Sorry; that could never be, the re-education machine will protect from such an occurrence. Now that Iraqi oil is flowing Saudi resistance can be condemned. President Bush; surely family ruling dynasties aren't acceptable in a Democracy? Your father never expected to follow in the footsteps of Prescott! Glad that having the ability to vote protects us from having an American version of King Fahd. No home grown Mattoids for us.

When Bush cites countries such as Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Morocco and Jordan as examples of democratic progress in the Middle East, he is really saying they are conforming to the Bush program. The criteria that is being used is whether a country will fall in line with the NeoCon colonialism. If they accept invasion of a neighboring state as a legitimate intervention, then the fruits of a communal democracy, will flow to the coffers of an autocrat who promises to reform his regime.

The ramifications of the arrogance of the Bush doctrine will haunt our country for decades. The sobriety of George II is in question - has he been hitting the bottle again? Probably not, but the national hangover will not be relieved with a swift end to his administration. That noble method for self government - federal elections - will never allow a true alternative to internationalism. How long will public opinion continue to support such an insane foreign policy? Well; what can one conclude, when a society so willingly accepts the destruction of their own civil liberties. The likes of the Patriot Act are the results of this precious Democracy. No wonder the elites are so eager for exportation of the expropriation model . . .
