MINOTAUR SHIT ECONOMICS

What is the similarity between George Osborne and Ed Balls? They both dance to a Phrygian flute. This was not always the case, for the economic policies of the Conservative and Labour Parties were once slightly more distinct. The blending of the species to form a ‘ConLab’ hybrid echoes the creation of the Minotaur – the bull-headed, half breed born to Queen Pasiphae of Crete after she had sex with a bull. This is not to infer that the Labour Party was raped by the Conservative Party, for successive Labour Party leaders lay with widely opened legs, inviting penetration. The bastard born of this union, the Minotaur (minor tory), lived in a labrynth (of lies), awating to be fed on a supply of young boys and girls. It, thus, devoured the future.

Before this coupling of the representatives of Labour and Capital, they danced in different fashion. To borrow again from the Greeks, they once danced the Corybantum, with armed dacers striking their swords against their shields in a simulated battle. Such mock battles had an important place in the training of Greek youth, and formed a right of passage, rather like the rugby fields of Eton. The more rudimentary form of this combat dance was the Hormos, which was performed naked. It is not known if Etonians practice naked scrummaging behind closed doors.

The Bahilicos was a Bacchanalian dance, associated with the cult of Dionysus, and often ended in an orgy. Skilled dancers were trained to use all their body to get ‘the message’ across – the hands would be used excessively in emphasis (the milibandis); and exaggerated facial expressions would give the illusion of sincerity (the camerondis). The audience loved it. They thought it represented reality. The best dancers, the ones that were applauded the most, were even allowed to marry into the ruling class. They were given golden crowns to wear, and could attain the rank of ambassador.

Yet, it is not the Hormos or Bahilicos that George Osborne and Ed Balls writhe to, unless behind closed doors. They dance to a Phrygian flute, performing the Geronos, or ‘chain dance’. The flute is played by the priests of Cybele, who wear costumes depicting the Skull and Bones. One takes the female part, the other – the male. They touch each others wrists, and move in a maze-like fashion about the (political) stage, reenacting the story of Ariadne, who assisted Theseus to escape the Labrynrh after slaying the Minotaur. The half-breed has been destroyed, what now remains is a pure effigy. No longer do people gaze in horror at a bull-headed human. The new hybrid appears all human, but is mind remains that of the Minotaur.

This is the tale of British politics. The union of beast and man to form the New Labour Minotaur, followed by the Minotaur’s ‘make-over’. It looks Tory. It sounds Tory . It thinks Tory. If imitation is the best form of flattery, then, in the history of British politics, none have flattered more than the New Labour Party. They are the purveyors of  “we believe in this 99%, you, 100%; we believe in this 100%, you 99%” – the masters (they hope) of making the smallest degree of difference seem like an attractive option for voters. The truth is, I suggest, they dance before the priests of the Skull and Bones, and, as Homer described: ‘in soft gowns … trained and adept (in deception), they circled there with (shameless) ease’.

The modern priests of Cybele are not religionists in the accepted sense. Their sacred texts are economic theory steeped in Minotaur shit. Their cult worships ‘free market’ economics, which they proclaim is the only road to (Lutheran) salvation.

A review of Yves Smith’s ‘ECONned: How Unenlightened Self Interest Undermined Democracy and Corrupted Capitalism (2010) lays bare the modern Cybelites: ‘Neoclassical economics has become the modern religion with its own priests … It was a successful attempt to legitimize the unlimited rule of financial oligarchy by using quasi-mathematical, oversimplified and detached for reality models. The net result is a new brand of theology, which proved to be pretty powerful in influencing people and capturing governments (“cognitive regulatory capture”) … The main effect of neoclassical economics is elevating unregulated … markets into the key mechanism for distribution of the results of economic activity, with banks as all-powerful middlemen, and sedating any opposition with pseudo-mathematical mumbo-jumbo. Complexity was used as a powerful smoke screen to conceal greed and incompetence. As a result financial giants were able to loot almost all sectors of economics with impunity and without any remorse, not unlike the brutal conquerors in Middle Ages … The key to the success of this nationwide looting is that people should be brainwashed/indoctrinated to believe that by some alchemical process, maximum level of greed results in maximum prosperity for all’.

The Cybelite cult has allowed Rothchild bankers to rule the world. They bribe ‘academics’ to legitimise their doctrines through grants to university ‘think tanks’, where academic prostitutes infest their student with their syphilitic doctrines. Their celebrity media economists constantly portray the legitimacy of the mass delusion of greed disguised as dergulation. Like all truth-trashers, they have been bought.

They peddle lies about budget deficits, as further explained in an American context on freethinkers.com, in 2012: ‘When Republicans talk about deficits they are hypocrites and liars. The president and the Democratic leaders in Congress can’t speak it that bluntly, but we can … Ronald Reagan used the deficit as an issue when he ran against President Carter. As president, Reagan ran up the largest deficit in U.S. history. The Republicans of his era talked a lot about a Balanced Budget Amendment, while consistently voting to run up the largest deficit in U.S. history. Reagan’s successor, the heir to the Bush dynasty, outdid his mentor by running up an even larger deficit. President Clinton raised taxes, eliminated the deficit and created a surplus, and just coincidentally oversaw an enormous economic expansion and near full employment. The next heir to the Bush dynasty cut taxes, eviscerated the Clinton surplus, and outdid both his father and Reagan by breaking their records for creating the largest deficits in U.S. history. He also all but broke the economy. This isn’t complicated. This isn’t difficult to explain. What is difficult to explain is why the Democrats don’t do a better and more consistent job of explaining it’.

Let me try to answer this question. All politicians owned by the ‘Skull and Bones’ (New World Order) dance to a Phrygian flute, performing the Geronos or chain dance. They move in a maze-like fashion about the political stage. These new hybrids appear all human, but their mind is that of a monster, uncaring, devoid of emotion, other than in the appearance of it, evoking God and religion to further their cause, without believing in morality; theirs is only to deceive.

They stand at the funerals of soldiers who have died in their battles,  only to deceive. Martin Bormann (Hitlers private secretary) believed Nazism (as the New World Order) was completely incompatible with Christianity: “When we speak of belief in God, we do not mean, like the naive Christians and their spiritual exploiters, a man-like being sitting around somewhere in the universe. The force governed by natural law by which all these countless planets move in the universe, we call omnipotence or God. The assertion that this universal force can trouble itself about the destiny of each individual being, every smallest earthly bacillus, can be influenced by so-called prayers or other surprising things, depends upon a requisite dose of naivety or else upon shameless professional self-interest”.

In that he said it all. The politicians of the New World Order do not believe that their economic cult serves all, they know it serves only them. They cover themselves in a righteous cloak, but only believe in their shameless self-interest. They indoctrinate to produce the “requisite dose of naivety” that blinds the deceived.

The deceived believe that we should be focusing on ‘the deficit’, even though Ben Bernanke (chairman of the Federal Reserve) cautioned that spending cuts could undermine economic recovery. Yet, the chief priest of the Cibelites, Obama, focuses on the concept of  ‘the defecit’, as his British acolyte, Cameron; they posture about  “fiscal responsibility” when they do not believe in it, as history testifies. They only use this doctrine as an excuse to wage class warfare – to bring about a cowed and cheap workforce, encouraged to take out their frustrations on poor and disabled “benefit scroungers” – to divide is to rule, to rule is to deceive, to deceive is to further the shameless self interests of the Skull and Bones.

Osborne and Balls dance the dance of the Skull and Bones. The duped masses think that they are being sincere, and applaud them, not realising that they are being spoon-fed the “requisite dose of naivety”.

The beliefs instilled into the naive are easily countered: The last Labour government did not leave the biggest debt in the developed world. George Osborne admitted to the Treasury Select Committee that he did not know the UK had the lowest debt in the G7, which was confirmed by the OECD. The lie had been spun by defining debt in cash terms and not in percentages.  As the sixth largest economy in the world, with a GDP of £1.7 trillion, the UK will have a larger cash debt than, say, San Marino. It is like comparing the cash debt of a millionaire to that of someone on the minimum wage.

The last Labour government did not create the biggest deficit in the developed world by overspending. As Ramesh Patel, Huffington Post, 2012, made clear: ‘the much banded about 2010 deficit of over 11% is false. This is the PSNB (total borrowings) and not the actual budget deficit which was – 7.7% – OBR Economic and Fiscal Outlook March 2012 page 19 table 1.2. He points out that: ‘in 1997 Labour inherited a deficit of 3.9% of GDP (not a balanced budget ) and by 2008 it had fallen to 2.1% – a reduction of a near 50% – Impressive! Hence, it’s implausible and ludicrous to claim there was overspending. The deficit was then exacerbated by the global banking crises after 2008 … Thirdly, the IMF have also concluded the same. They reveal the UK experienced an increase in the deficit as result of a large loss in output/GDP caused by the global banking crisis and not even as result of the bank bailouts, fiscal stimulus and bringing forward of capital spending. It’s basic economics: when output falls the deficit increases. Finally, the large loss in output occurred because the UK like the US have the biggest financial centres and as this was a global banking crises we suffered the most. Hence, the UK had the 2nd highest deficit in the G7 (Not The World) after the US and not as a result of overspending prior to and after 2008- as the IMF concur’. He further makes clear that: ‘the markets expect the economy to remain stagnate. Which means the price for bonds will remain high and hence, our borrowing costs will also remain low … the UK is considered a safe heaven because, investors are reassured the Bank of England will buy up bonds in an event of any sell off’. That is, buying UK bonds is a bet to nothing, rather like getting your stake returned at a bookmakers if you horse falls at Beechers.

Although it can be expected that the UK government peddle the same neocon lies as their American counterparts, and hoodwink the public through a constant stream of economic propaganda, dished out by ‘experts’ (in the form of expert liars), why is it that the UK Labour Party and the American Democrat Party buy into this lie? The only reason is that they do not control the narrative, which has been given to them by the High Priests of The Skull and Bones, the real masters of destiny. The only role their political acolytes have in this process of mass mind control is to spin slightly different versions of the same lie. Like osborne and Balls, they dance to seduce their audience. They dance the same dance, as contestants in a tv celebrity dancing competition, hoping to attract votes by displaying economic ‘cleavage or leg’ that panders to voters’ tastes.

Another belief of the naive concerns government issued bonds. Countries around the world are not forced to buy American and British debt, through the purchase of government bonds; they do so in their own self interest. They do not want America and Britain to be ‘producers of goods’, because that would threaten their own economies, their own workers’ jobs. The governments of America and Britain do not want to be ‘producers of goods’, because that would give people a certain amount of economic independence. Far better for them that young people are swept toward a future of gross indebtedness from taking out university loans; that millions of so-called employed are subsisting on zero hours contracts, that all public utilities and health services are being sold to corporations intent on maximising profits by maximising the misery of the poor.

Some people are not born to it, but they are made to be as thick as Minotaur shit. Others realise that they act out of shameless self-interest, justifying their actions with lies – as Wordsworth once described it: ‘they do what they must, and call it by another name’. In the history of the world, the powerful have always manipulated the naive, trapping them in political systems in which a minority dictate to the majority – as exampled by the UK’s first-past-the-post voting system. It is the task of the revolutionary to destroy the manipulators, but not to replace them with carbon copies which go by another name.

In the name of Leon Trotsky, I call for permanent revolution. The needs of humanity can only be met through socialism,and this transformation can only take place on a world scale; there are no national solutions to the global problems of Capitalism. For anyone struggling with how to successfully make change — anti-war, anti-globalization, feminist, gay, and race liberationists – rise as one to embrace this doctrine. Trotsky understood that the conflict between the Working and Capitalist classes is international in nature, because the economy is international in nature. Capitalism will engage in a fierce battle against anything that gets in the way of profits, from colonial liberation movements, to protesters of low wages.

World liberation depends on ending Americas’ role as the exporter of petroleum (and other natural resource) wars, and counterrevolution. All of the gains of the American and British working class, in Social Security and health care provision, the ownership of national assets by the people, are being ruthlessly dismembered by the acolyte priests (politicians) who dance to the tune dictated by the Skull and Bones – the corporation/banking entity called by some The New World Order. When threatened they become more reactionary and violent. They spy on everyone. To have a different world view is classed as terrorism.

Organise a Million Worker March. Ditch bought-out unions. Join with those of other countries to form an international movement to set people free.
