The Big Fuck Off Elephant in the Room
The true cause of immigration and the real enemy
The Big Fuck Off Elephant in the Room
By Dan Ashman / elephantintheroom.org.uk

The right wing billionaire press are using pavlovian techniques to illicit a conditioned response from the nationalistic mindset. One that is conditioned in the majority of us since birth. In some it swells with pride just at the name “England.” (Or the respective country where such conditioning has been received.) Rituals, sports and national centric history. Tribe. The developed world. Civilised. Self aggrandisement. Superiority. Winners.

As the 5 owners of 80 percent of the media re-enforce the emotional response to the idea “England” they also construct the “other.” The object of disgust becomes the swarming hordes of bogus immigrants. A category of subhuman that will destroy everyone’s security; livelihood, health system and environment. Day after day, year after year a perfectly rational desire/necessity to find a secure home, for family, for a better life is lambasted. Offence. The immigrants motives insignificant in comparison with the offence of them wishing to exist in an affluent environment. This technique isn't new.

How did that environment become affluent I hear you cry? Mainly through genocide, exploitation and theft. The grand chess board. It seems globalisation is a continuation of that process all but in name.

Intentions of dominance justified by Gods blessing and the worthless savage other. Eugenics a hybrid of such a thought process justified by pseudo science. Aberrations of “natural” order. Economic eugenics the next phase being practised. Aberrations of a successful economy. Yet the reality is the relationships that we call the “economy” creates the conditionality that people need to flee from. The engineered financial networks across the globe ensure the continued impoverishment that keeps people desperate, which in turn provides wage slave labour. The institutions planted through colonialism and subsequent cultural value systems create the order of exploitation.

Objects of disgust absorb energy, they offer an explanation for dissatisfaction and frustration. (Even when the logic is flawed.) They re-enforce group identity and most importantly the misdirection prevents the true culprits of the harms we face being held to account. In truth the billionaire is enriched by the immigrant (society is at large) and no doubt they know it, but they need you to hate on the “other” to continue their advantage. It is not the immigrant who exploits but those distributing money paying shit wages.
 

Those who are misdirecting and misinforming people are profiting from the current order of things. An order that exploits and in its exploitation creates the environmental and social instability that cause people to seek to live elsewhere, cause people to risk their very lives in their search. War, pollution, exploitation and inequality of distribution are all essential in maintaining the order. The truth is the world is a giant sweatshop.

Who benefits from that exploitation? How do they enforce that exploitation? How do they hide it? The order of resource flow, control of people and domination of space. Largely through money. A construct. The priesthoods of monetary distribution open up populations around the globe to its exploitation under the guise of development. The infamous structural adjustment programs guarantee its cultivation. The promise of the rags to riches fairytale. The economic hit-man the first henchman sent from the affluent to feed their greed. If that fails then war.

The affluence is a source of pride of which justifies further domination. The foreigner is not worth thinking about ergo their pain or suffering of no consequence thus their exploitation for our affluence in foreign lands acceptable. Everyone is doing it after all. If it wasn't us it would be some “other”.

Let's examine the conditionality that people experience and also acknowledge where the man made value systems that are being enforced come from. What is the expression of that value system? Where is law criminal, an affront to the course of justice? Why do people not have access to fundamental things they need to survive? Who truly benefits from the denial of access to the fundamentals? It surely isn't the mother and child that drowns crossing on a boat or a father or son crushed by a lorry. 22,000 children a day die due to starvation. Surely it is reasonable to escape the conditionality that brings that about. Severe weather caused by climate change force people elsewhere, the prescription to affluence in turns contributes to climate change. Ergo the cycle continues and the symptom gets blamed as a cause.

The corporations, the billionaires and those under their influence need the inequality, the desperation, the war to survive. It's how they make their wealth. It is not in their interest to see environmental balance or peace enacted.

Much land that could guarantee access of food and the like is out of bounds dedicated to feeding the insatiable desire of greed and profit. It is better that people forced to live with such unequal distribution starve or freeze than potential profits be lost. The shareholder looking for an easy way to make their accounts bulge with digits. The consequence of no consequence to them. Filling the world with non essential pointless tatt/stuff and poison so a few can live in luxury. Fellow human beings being held at gun point as they mine for minerals of value for those who wish to wear it as a status symbol.

The shareholder creams off its slice for moving digits into a square at the casino. That’s the construct of business. Detached from consequence. Unthinking. Callous. Machiavellian. It is a culture, not a system, it claims objectivity but it is not, it is human not a machine. As proven by the Libor rigging Crimes. The hidden hand made visible. Manipulated to suit the humans agenda whom are in control of that casino/cartel. Law enforcers look the other way to their paymasters crimes. A sacrificial lamb is offered. The wolves roam free.
The financial crash has seen the majority get poorer yet those who form the cartels have seen their wealth grow. They are culpable. Through that recognition we will change our relationships to each other, to our environment, conditioned concepts that lock us in pointless duality and we will ensure our survival.

The other choice is to condemn future generations to a worse situation than today. What parent would wish that for their young? What loving human being would want that for their fellow brothers and sisters? Or for anyone’s young? #prioritycheck
