What the Response to the Killing of Black Men Reveals About the USA: 3

December 21, 2014 11 comments

In the previous part of this series, I talked about how the inability of politicians to control cops was a sign that the USA has become an unsuccessful and unstable tyranny- one where nobody is recognized as being in charge of the overall situation. While I was initially going to talk a bit more about how this lack of a clear hierarchy destabilizes modern nation states, events in the last couple of days have made me push that more scholarly discussion into a later part. I shall instead write a bit about that particular incident – Man Shoots, Kills Two NYC Cops “Execution Style,” Apparently as Revenge for Garner, Brown.

The gunman appears to have traveled to New York specifically to kill police officers as he allegedly wrote Instagram posts in which he expressed a desire for revenge for the killings of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. “I’m putting wings on pigs today,” he wrote, according to the screen capture of the Instagram post. “They take one of ours … let’s take 2 of theirs. This may be my final post.” He then signed off: “I’m putting pigs in a blanket.” Witnesses say the gunman did not appear to hesitate, shooting several rounds into the car. “The perp came out of the houses, walked up behind the car and lit them up,” a police official said. Another witness told the Daily News: “He just walked up and shot that cop in the head.”

Now, as most of you also know- the guy who executed those cops also killed (or seriously injured?) his ex-GF. So what can we make out of all this? How do we classify the actions of Ismaaiyl Brinsley? Was he a black guy who stood up for injustice or just somebody who wanted to kill for the sake of killing? Well.. here are my thoughts on that topic. Firstly, it is almost always impossible to classify incidents and people without the benefit of considerable hindsight. For example- the people who led the Russian revolution were criminals until they succeeded and became national heroes and then rulers. We may never know what precise combination of circumstances and beliefs drove Gavrilo Princip to kill Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, and thereby starting WW1. Nonetheless, the effects of the successful 1917 revolution and WW1, and the lasting effects of both events (including WW2) caused many seismic changes and shifts throughout the world.

The effects and legacy of any event or person, especially their representation in subsequent popular culture, bear little resemblance to how they were perceived at the time those events actually occured.

Consider, for example, the well-documented fact that most of those signed the american declaration of independence in 1776 were slave owners who bought and sold human beings like livestock. I have always found it funny that people who wrote about the intrinsic equality and rights of all men went back to torturing, killing and profiting of the labors of black slaves after they adjourned their pompous meetings. While most american morons still revere them as the “founding fathers” of the USA, and objective person would see them for what they really were- extremely greedy, deceptive and sadistic slave owners whose gamble of establishing an independent country paid of. The fact that white slave-owners like Washington and Jefferson are seen as enlightened human beings is almost exclusively due to the downstream effects of them accidentally hitting the jackpot. If events had proceeded differently, the world would have just remembered them as greedy and sophistic white slave owners. Therefore “facts” such as the “criminal record” of black men who shoot cops or are killed by cops are intrinsically meaningless and worthless.

To better understand such incidents and their downstream effects we have to first understand their context – as best as we can.

Doing so requires us to factor in obvious pieces of information such as the what preceded those events as well as their socio-economic context and less obvious ones such as the world they occurred in. While trying to objectively understand the preceding events and socio-economic context of such events is fairly straightforward, understanding the implications of the less obvious factors can be complicated. So let us begin with the more easy to understand parts of the context underlying such events. Slavery, specifically the enslavement and exploitation of black people, is a very important part of the foundation of american and american-style capitalism. Unfortunately, many white americans including those whose ancestors gained little from such practices like to ignore this fact. But the legacy of pre-1865 slavery is only part of the problem.

Indeed, the systemic legalized abuse, murder, exploitation and systemic impoverishment of blacks in the USA in the post-1865 constitutes the larger part of this problem. Whether it was Jim Crow laws in the post-reconstruction South or more subtle legalized abuse and impoverishment of blacks at the same time in the North- it is fair to say that laws were always used to abuse blacks while letting whites pretend to be fair, at least in their own minds. It is also no surprise that laws that were supposed to be “tough on crime” and “imprison druggies” started becoming popular at around the same time as the Civil rights movements started gaining legislative victories in the late-1960s. As some of you might already know, the war on drugs is basically Jim Crow version 2.0. And this brings me to an important concept.

The relationship between most (especially older) whites and blacks in the USA has more in common with apartheid-era South Africa and other now defunct post-WW2 white colonies in Africa than most white americans will ever want to accept.

Consequently, no amount of non-violent protests and appeals to the decency of american whites (especially CONservatives) will ever fundamentally change this situation. I mean, how can you appeal to the basic decency of american whites (especially CONservatives) when they have none? All of these marches, die-ins, protests, hashtag “activism” and calls for legislative fixes have the same likelihood as succeeding as they had in erstwhile african colonies of western countries. Non-violent movements only appear to succeed in achieving change if the option is significantly worse for the abusers. And this brings us to the issue of how western colonies in Africa ceased to exist.

The downfall and eventual demise of western colonization of Africa was brought about by a combination of circumstances in the aftermath of WW2. However, the single most important factor that led to the demise of western colonies in Africa was the spread of soviet anti-personal weapons such as the AK-47. Once this occurred, it became virtually impossible for white colonists in Africa to ever feel physically secure enough to profit from exploiting the people. Empires and colonial systems cannot make a worthwhile profit if the areas they claim control over are too unsafe for centralized economic activity. Eventually the cost of suppressing near constant uprisings and military casualties (especially indirect) ensure that empire or colony is unprofitable.

Now, I am not claiming that the lessons of destroying western colonialism in Africa can be applied to the USA. As you know, the USA is still technically a white majority (but not for long) society. While its white population is rapidly aging and has sub-replacement level fertility, it might be able to hold on to absolute power for a decade or so longer. However that is not the real Achilles heel of the USA. Its real shortcoming is that there is not much substance left to back up its old image of supremacy. If you want to be objective about it, the USA is best described as a country that exports entertainment, porn, expensive and useless weapons and the pretense of being a safe place for investment.

To put it another way, the power of white USA in the real world is now mostly based on lies, scams, fiction and window-dressing.

Think of white USA as an aging woman who has undergone countless cosmetic procedure and put on tons of makeup to look more youthful and vital than she really is. Taking apart such an entity starts with demonstrating the reality under all that plastic surgery and makeup. The loss of image control made possible via decentralized media, especially the internet, has exposed people around the world to the grim reality under the glossy facade of the USA. However that by itself is not enough to make modern nation states fall apart.

If you have studied the fall of modern nation states over the last hundred years, one factor keeps popping up with remarkable regularity in places as diverse as the Middle-East and Eastern-Europe. It can be best described as the constriction of normal socio-economic discourse caused by overreaction by the security forces (enforcers) or by privileging them over the rest. We have seen this work in slow motion in post WW2 communist countries as well as numerous “countries” in the Middle-East. Personally, I do not see evil systems coming apart from runaway auto-immune reactions as a bad thing- do you?

I will write more about this particular issue in a future post.

What the Response to the Killing of Black Men Reveals About the USA: 2

December 7, 2014 13 comments

Following on from my previous post in this series, I shall now try to answer a set of related and important questions that almost nobody seems to be asking. They are as follows.

Why are the police so dogged in their refusal to publicly accept that they might make mistakes? What do they really stand to lose from occasional gestures of contrition, even if they are insincere and meant for public displays? But perhaps more importantly, why are elected officials apparently unwilling or unable to pressure police departments to publicly lose a little?

As you will soon see, the last question in that set is far from trivial. Throughout human history, successful tyrannical regimes have always spent a considerable amount of time on making sure that they were feared but not hated. To this end, successful tyrants always made sure that low-level enforcers of the regime who overstepped their bounds and bought disrepute to the tyrant were quickly punished for their excesses. As is often the case, the reasons for punitive action against low-level enforces who brought disrepute to the regime were motivated by the self-interest of the regime.

Most of these reasons boil down to two interlinked issues. Firstly, excessively tyrannical low-level enforcers result in the regime being hated rather than simply feared. A hated regime will always cause the affected subjects to rebel against the regime or try to sabotage it- neither of which are desirable from the standpoint of the tyrant and his cronies accumulating wealth and power. Secondly, low-level flunkies in the department of oppression require periodic reminders that they are just low-level flunkies. Tyrants do not like people who dream of usurping their position.

What does this say about the current situation when elected politicians seems unwilling or unable to reign in the low-level flunkies in the department of oppression?

Well.. there are two ways to look at it. You can either believe that the politicians are unwilling to reign in the police because that is what they want them do. However, the demographic-racial profile of, and the electoral situation in, the USA is such that willingly ignoring such problems is a good recipe for losing power- especially at the national level. A related possibility, namely that politicians are expecting these problems to blow over before the next series of elections (like in the days before internet) has some merit. However the sheer number and frequency of cops murdering and beating up people combined with the ubiquity of people using the internet means that hoping the problem will go away is a naive assumption.

But what if there is another explanation for this reticence by the political class to condemn cops who commit murders? What if they are actually unable to do so?

Towards the beginning of this post, I casually mentioned the concept of “successful tyrannies”. So what makes some tyrannies successful and long-lived? It comes down to rational centralization of power and a clear chain of authority that ultimately gives one semi-competent (or better) person the final say on any subject in his realm. Unsuccessful tyrannies, in contrast, have many competing centers of power involved in a continuous game of one-upmanship. And this brings us another question.

Is the USA a representative democracy or a tyranny masquerading as a democracy?

Now, I am sure that readers of this post will have their own beliefs about the “right” answer for this question. However I am not interested in answers based in personal beliefs or books- because those answers are really about what you believe or want to see. Let me show you another way to look at this question.

Does the USA, as a society, function largely on the basis of constant explicit and implicit threats or does it function on the basis of a melange of individual calculations, some goodwill, some fear and some guilt?

Well.. in my opinion, the functioning of american society has become increasingly dependent on the constant application of explicit and implicit threats. While we can certainly argue about whether that was always the case, it is quite clear that there was a period from the 1930s to the 1970s when optimism and belief in a better future was the driving force for people keeping up their end of the social contract. The end of this era, in the late 1970s, signaled the beginning of an age where repression combined with explicit and implicit threats has gradually became the norm of making the system function- for enriching the top 1% and 0.1%.

The USA is therefore functionally identical to a tyranny. The real question is- are the people running this tyranny united and competent or divided and incompetent.

Russia and China provide good examples of what successful tyrannies look and function like. In both countries there is a very well-defined, uncontested and publicly known chain of command and power that pretty much everybody in those countries is well aware of. While those at lower levels in the power structure have some autonomy and perks, they are perfectly disposable and dispensable if they screw up or do anything that causes public embarrassment or loss of face for those at the top. Everyone in the setup, including the flunkies who staff the oppression apparatus know their place and leeway in the system.

In contrast to Russia or China, the USA lacks the highly centralized and efficient human infrastructure of a tyranny even though it operates as one. Consequently there are multiple centers of power and members of each group are locked in an unintentional but eternal struggle with members of the other centers. This low intensity civil war between multiple power centers results in the formation (and subsequent dissolution) of numerous temporary alliances between groups who often don’t have much common ground or interests.

The studied silence of politicians in the face of cop atrocities is therefore a sign of the inability of their group to exert influence on a nominally subordinate group.The shortsighted unwillingness of police to acknowledge either administrative concerns or public opinion is best seen as the result of a situation where nobody is perceived to be in charge of the system. To summarize this post, the largely uncontested and unpunished cop brutality evident in the USA today is a sign of that the country has become an unsuccessful and unstable tyranny- one where nobody is recognized as being in charge of the overall situation.

What the Response to the Killing of Black Men Reveals About the USA: 1

December 5, 2014 20 comments

As many of you know, the last few months have seen many highly publicized incidents of state sanctioned extra-judicial murders of unarmed black men. While there is some variation in the exact circumstances of each “incident”- it is clear that all of the publicized incidents from the shooting death of Michael Brown, the choking death of Eric Gardner, the shooting of Tamir Rice to the shooting Akai Gurley have some peculiar similarities.

1. In all these incidents, the extra-judicially executed black men posed no real physical threat to the cops who murdered them.

2. In every single one of these cases the decision to kill the black man in question was made very hastily and under circumstances that do not stand up to scrutiny.

3. After the murder, the local police and the lackeys in the MSM tried to uncover any “evidence” that might cast the murder victims in a poor light.

4. Perhaps most curiously, in each case the police did not attempt to provide medical assistance after the shooting or promptly call for EMS.

5. In every single case, the police have spent a lot of time and effort trying to deny or tarnish the legitimacy of community outrage against what is clearly murder.

So what is going on? Why are white cops killing unarmed black men? And why are these incidents attracting so much attention even though the murder victims are not supposedly the “perfect” black murder victim.

The cynical among you, and me, would say that white cops killing unarmed black men is actually how the american “justice” system was mean to work.

The murders of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Sean Bell, Amadou Diallo, Sam Shepherd, and countless thousands of others at the hands of American law enforcement are not aberrations, or betrayals, or departures. The acquittals of their killers are not mistakes. There is no virtuous innermost America, sullied or besmirched or shaded by these murders. This is America. It is not broken. It is doing what it does.

Policing in America is not broken. The judicial system is not broken. American society is not broken. All are functioning perfectly, doing exactly what they have done since before some of this nation’s most prosperous slave-murdering robber-barons came together to consecrate into statehood the mechanisms of their barbarism. Democracy functions. Politicians, deriving their legitimacy from the public, have discerned the will of the people and used it to design and enact policies that carry it out, among them those that govern the allowable levels of violence which state can visit upon citizen.

Taken together with the myriad other indignities, thefts, and cruelties it visits upon black and brown people, and the work common white Americans do on its behalf by telling themselves bald fictions of some deep and true America of apple pies, Jesus, and people being neighborly to each other and betrayed by those few and nonrepresentative bad apples with their isolated acts of meanness, the public will demands and enables a whirring and efficient machine that does what it does for the benefit of those who own it. It processes black and brown bodies into white power.

I quoted the three best paragraphs from that article on deadspin.com because they say what almost no MSM journalist aka presstitute would dare to imply, let alone say loudly. So the state-sanctioned and nominally extra-judicial murder of black men is actually business as usual. Of course, there have been some superficial cosmetic changes since the “good old days” when good, god-fearing white christian families posed alongside the mutilated corpses of lynched black men.

Today the killings are done by a few people with uniforms and without the pomp and ceremony that accompanied the murder of black men in previous eras. While such changes were probably disappointing to all those small-dicked, god-fearing, white christian men- it allowed the american government to pretend that it had ended overt racism. Also, it was kinda hard to lecture other countries about “democracy” and “the rule of law” when it was obvious that you were full of shit.

This transformation in state policy occurred between the 1930s (last public lynchings) and the immediate aftermath of the 1968 riots (post-MLK assassination) and was made possible by two factors. Firstly- the government was able to stop public lynchings of black men and replace them with murder by cop. Secondly- the almost exclusively white mainstream media could be relied upon to withhold information, spread disinformation and generally act as the governments handmaiden. This state of affairs held until the Rodney King incident in 1992 when an amateur video recording of a bunch of white cops beating a black man eventually caused a riot in the second largest city in the USA.

But even then, the government was able to use the mainstream media to eventually bring things under control. As many of you know, mainstream media was able to dominate public conversation at that time because there was no cheap or inexpensive way to broadcast your message, thoughts or video clips in the pre- or early- internet era. We also got dozens of “Law and Order” and “CIS” shows that tried very hard to brainwash simple-minded people that the system was just and fair. But then the second (FB/ Twitter/ YouTube/ Huffingtonpost) and third (smartphone) internet wave happened and caused irreversible changes to the underlying system conditions.

The proliferation of the products of the second wave enhanced content sharing in addition to destroying the financial stability of traditional mainstream media- especially print. Using products of the second internet wave also exposed people to ideas and concepts that they probably never had previously heard about in addition to tearing down the public images and facades of the product of mainstream media- from “experts” to famous journalists and the themes of popular TV shows. It is no secret that pretty much all of the older hit TV sitcoms would have never reached their iconic stature in the post-internet age.

And this brings us to the first reason why the old setup cannot suppress or explain away the state-sanctioned murder of black men. To put it simply, the MSM which was the main tool of the american government to control and shape public discourse has lost credibility- even in the eyes of many younger whites. If you don’t believe me, ask yourself- when is the last time you made your kind about something exclusively based on what you read in the newspaper, saw on the news or heard on the radio show? Don’t remember.. ya, I thought so.

The second and related reason for this change is that ubiquitous presence of digital camera in smartphones make recording and sharing of controversial incidents extremely easy. And then there is the issue of ubiquitous private surveillance cameras. It is therefore no surprise that we now often have multiple video clips for a single incident of white cops murdering a black man. The old strategy of using the sworn testimony of supposedly “truthful” white cops to counter accusations by black men and women just does not work well, if at all, anymore.

The third, and perhaps just as important reason, for the change resides in how blacks and increasingly marginalized whites now see the system. You might recall that the black civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s spent a lot of effort in trying to find the “right” black victim. They did so in the mistaken belief that appealing to the decency of white people was a good strategy. Well.. it wasn’t.

It is no secret the the mass public incarceration and disenfranchisement of black men began after the apparent success of the civil right movement. Over those decades, most younger blacks and increasingly marginalized whites have realized that appealing to the sense of justice and fairness of hypocritical CONservative whites is a futile exercise. That is why the supposed minor “criminal” records of the black victims have no effect on the willingness of people to demand justice for them.

Will write much more in upcoming parts of this series.
