Challenges to Journalism Reform - How?

September 24, 2009 | Updated Sunday, January 20, 2019
To what extent do some or many of the following points reflect the state of the press today? In reading the following excerpt from the well known 100 year old document [1] – deemed to be a forgery by many, and blueprint for world conquest by many more – and assuming it merely be an anonymous work of profound literature, of entertaining fiction, or a frightening discourse in political science, its diabolical prescience to reflect what has come to pass in the worldwide press today is incredibly shocking. As in Machiavelli's The Prince, the diabolical mechanisms proposed therein to manufacture and control public opinion to serve the interests of a despotic oligarchy bears close study.
The very word “freedom” has been circumscribed in this despotic system from what is deemed “unalienable”, to what is ordained “legal”. And it becomes pertinent to ask the question: Is that state of affairs reflected in the tortuous reality of today? As the text asserts: “all freedom will thus be in our hands, since the laws will abolish or create only that which is desirable for us according to the aforesaid program.”
Has that happened in the United States? In whose hands is this freedom? How did that mechanism come to pass in America? In Europe? Without perceptively understanding how this hijacking was orchestrated in the West which itself originated the press, no reform is tenable because the same forces which orchestrated it will continue to sustain it and will subvert all reform including that which sends them to the gallows.
Anyone can benefit from any prose, literature and political science with due diligence, including from studying the Mighty Wurlitzer [1a] [1e] [1f] – whose abominable existence is as empirical as the origin of this nefarious document [1b] is mysterious – and from the Chinese Sun Tzu's The Art of War, [1c], and the US Military's From PSYOP to MindWar. [1d]
Therefore, in order to institute any meaningful reforms as wished by Robert Jensen et. al., [2] how do the journalism savants propose to counter this hijacking of the press by the Mighty Wurlitzer – even under the (highly questionable) premise that an informed polity can be a useful obstruction to despotism – such that giving the press the constitutional protection of "freedom" remains in practice something more than highly polished public relations for social control by any 'ubermensch' oligarchs, as for instance outlined in the Machiavellian text below.
It further bears to keep in mind that this highjacking of the press is not in isolation, but situated in a larger context that includes the oligarchy acquiring full monopolistic control in society of all that is meaningful, from money to economics to industry to education to entertainment, including acquiring full control over the glorified “errand boys” [3] who are dutifully elected by the polity only to represent the front faces of the behind-the-scene oligarchy. How are any reforms, be they for the press, or for the monetary system, [4] to be instituted under such an unvarnished reality?

My Naya Pakistan

Monday January 14, 2019
Preamble – My Naya Pakistan
The answer is in two parts: Domestic and International. Domestic: New egalitarian social contract in a restructured state that separates religion from state.* International: Throw Tea Overboard in Full Spectrum Alliances to deter Full Spectrum Dominance. There are many talented and popular minds in Pakistan and in the world who most eloquently speak to the former. I, Zahir Ebrahim, an ordinary common man, non-expert in all things, commonsensically speak to the latter since it is ignored by virtually everyone among the who's who. The cost to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is severely increased in its pursuit. Whereas, filling the airwaves with all things secular wins many accolades. Maligning Islam, distorting Islam, and pitching Secular Humanism are often the surest shortcut to empire's good graces and cheap popularity. It takes a diwana, like the moth drawn to fire, to write what I have written below in my Open Letter to Imran Khan. The Prime Minister of Pakistan, popularly known to many of his detractors as “Im the Dim” (short for Imran the Dimwit), and to his partisans as “honest engine pulling a decrypt train of used bogeys" (oft repeated phraseology of his railway minister), is now into completing the second trimester of birth-panging his vision of 'naya Pakistan'. In my earlier common man's observation, before Imran Khan became the Prime Minister of Pakistan, I feared that he was a passionate useful idiot of empire, unable to understand the Machiavellian script of which he had become an unwitting part due to his overzealousness, harboring mostly foolhardy ideas of reform akin to putting lipstick on a pig. Imran Khan in power could potentially be as dangerous to Pakistan as only a heaven-seeking idealist with a suicide jacket can ever be – for he was perceived as Mr. Clean. I have always feared that a useful idiot jihadi might do far more damage to the nation than shrewd mercenaries seeking pecuniary gain could, as had been the trend among Pakistan's previous rulers whose interest in self-preservation also preserved Pakistan as the golden goose.
However, upon hearing his first televised public address to the Pakistani nation as its new Prime Minister, I decided to give Imran Khan the benefit of considerable doubts. After all, how much harm could a “dimwit” really do with the establishment really running the country from behind its varied puppetshows, and all his fingers nowhere near any controls that the establishment themselves did not control? And, I imagined, Imran Khan might just surprise the lot of them with the djinns (supernatural forces brought to his team by his newlywed spiritual wife and divine guide) now on his side. So, I wrote Imran Khan a series of Open Letters over the past five months. This was Letter Five, showing the Prime Minister of Pakistan, as just an ordinary common man not entirely bereft of commonsense, what to do now that Pakistan's original birth-pang in the blood of millions of human units is already a seventy year old fait accompli. Now that we are here and cannot undo history, how to steer the ship of state away from its pawn status on the Grand Chessboard in order to alter that very trajectory of history.
For, without extricating Pakistan from the international stormy waters of Grandmaster plays in common man's blood, the ill conceived ship of Pakistan can never reach the safety of its home shores. That is a statement of fact. A slave-state shall remain a slave-state until the chains of servitude are broken. A beggar-state fattened on the largesse of corrupting foreign aid and mercenary handouts can hardly ever be empowered to break those chains --- lip-services aside. Despite the dismal performance since coming to power of the anemic engine trying to pull the heavily loaded decrypt train of nincompoops uphill with nothing but “I think I can I think I can I think I can” (The Little Engine That Could --- children's story), I continue to be Pollyannaish in reposing faith in the honest man at the helm who, unfortunately, also appears to be a lot less prepared to be the captain of state despite two decades of struggling for that position, than he was as captain of its cricket team. I continue to repose faith in Imran Khan that he has some purpose in mind for coming to power other than the nasha (intoxication) of power, and that his utterances in his first speech to the nation is in fact his real purpose for coming to power; that it was not merely a show and tell of what the public wanted to hear with no substance behind it.
I continue to believe, perhaps naively, that any honest human being of immeasurable courage and boldness coming to power, even if he or she does not have all the expertise to run the ship of state, can still acquire the right expertise if he can selflessly inspire those with the requisite skills and determination to join him. Meaning, being a leader of men (and women), is distinct from being competent in the various fields of endeavors of man. I continue to believe that despite many false starts, that Imran Khan's real strength is in ultimately being a leader who can inspire a team. Surely, braver and competent faces with a tad more humility and poise, will come to the fore after the kachra bogies have been weeded out from the existing team; faces who are unafraid of speaking truth to power, and to the people, regardless of the bowl of hemlock waiting in the wings. Faces who know from whence we came, minus all the national myths drummed into us from birth, and who know what needs to be done in order to get to where Pakistan must go domestically in order to be of genuine service to all its sons and daughters of the soil, instead of merely servicing them as it has been doing since its inception. Faces that are not continually begging tyrants and murderers for handouts with outstretched bowls, nor are crooks seeking pecuniary gain, nor stupid simpletons to make useful idiots easily. Faces that surely must exist in every nation, including Pakistan! This is to seek them out. Where art thou?
The fact that Pakistanis continue to survive despite all the servicing we have received over the past seventy years, is both surprising and heartening. I wisely choose to hide my deeper primordial fears at this time that Imran Khan is the Machiavellian intermediate step diabolically brought to power in all his public ineptness only to legitimize bringing back a military-style dictatorship government in 2019 after demonstrating to the world, and to the worn out Pakistanis by then left completely bereft of hope, the spectacular failure of Pakistan's experimentation with “democracy”.
* A précis of what makes this separation a categorical imperative for a pluralistic nation like Pakistan, is in my open letter which outlines its existential necessity; a discussion of fundamental moral themes and evergreen wisdom guidelines borrowed from Divine Religion to base an egalitarian social contract, egalitarian national constitution, egalitarian domestic and foreign policies, and egalitarian international treaties and conventions in a predatory modern world in which primacy is exercised by legal cunning, is in my report which outlines the path forward for Pakistan.

Got Justice? Closing Reflections 2018!

Fundamental Types of Justice
  • Victor's Justice
    Resistance to victors, occupiers, oppressors, tyrants, is always a crime regardless.
    • Atrocities victors, occupiers, oppressors, tyrants commit are not crimes;
    • atrocities victors and vanquished both commit in common, or when there is stalemate, are glossed over in the name of fairness;
    • atrocities the vanquished commit are crimes.
    • Justice is in hanging the vanquished, occupying their lands, balkanizing their territories, remaking their laws, saddling them with war reparations, creating permanent client-state, stationing victor's troops permanently in the vanquished or occupied territories in the name of peace.
  • Victim's Justice
    Destroy and burn everything in sight.
  • Sovereign's Justice
    Only the King shall wear the crown.
    • “When the King asked him what he meant by infesting the sea, the pirate defiantly replied: 'the same as you do when you infest the whole world; but because I do it with a little ship I am called a robber, and because you do it with a great fleet, you are an emperor.'” --- The City of God against the Pagans, Page 148.
    • “Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.” --- George W. Bush Jr., speaking before the United States Congress, 09-21-2001
  • Hinduism's Justice
    None on this earth. Fated. Karma. Rebirth into higher form when good, into lower form when bad.
  • Judaism's Justice
    Eye for an eye. Vengeance.
    • “And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life, Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.” --- Exodus 21:23-25 King James Version (KJV)
  • Christianity's Justice
    Turn the other cheek. Forgiveness. Repentance.
    • “38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
    • 39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
    • 40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.” --- Matthew 5:38-40 King James Version (KJV)
  • Islam's Justice
    Eye for an eye but do not transgress Allah's limits. Forgiveness. Repentance.
    Fight only the oppressors, cease if they cease, and when they cease, be forgiving and merciful toward them just as you wish Allah to be Forgiving and Merciful towards you; otherwise kill them if they persist, and continue fighting them to your very end.
    • “2:190 Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors.
    • 2:191 And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers. 2:192 And if they cease, then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
    • 2:193 Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah. But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors.
    • 2:194 [Fighting in] the sacred month is for [aggression committed in] the sacred month, and for [all] violations is legal retribution. So whoever has assaulted you, then assault him in the same way that he has assaulted you. And fear Allah and know that Allah is with those who fear Him.
    • 2:195 And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.” --- Holy Qur'an, Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:190-195
    • “5:32 Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.
    • 5:33 Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment,
    • 5:34 Except for those who return [repenting] before you apprehend them. And know that Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
    • 5:38 [As for] the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they committed as a deterrent [punishment] from Allah . And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
    • 5:39 But whoever repents after his wrongdoing and reforms, indeed, Allah will turn to him in forgiveness. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” --- Holy Qur'an, Surah Al-Ma'idah, 5:32-34. 5:38-39
  • Got Justice on Earth?
But of course!
The divine prescriptions have obviously failed man. Or, perhaps man has failed them.
Below are some futile reflections on achieving justice on earth given that sovereigns have always existed, and always shall exist. One tyrant can only be replaced by another. One sociopath by another.
So long as man's power exists to make war, to transgress another man's limits, injustice will continue to raise its head regardless of what's written in lofty divine books.
The journey of the descent of man from the tree-top to the ground continues...

When justice comes to pass, as it surely will – how does one administer justice to monumental criminals for their monumental crimes?
What mortal punishment can ever atone for what they have done to the tabula rasa of civilians across the globe? Imprisoning them for 10,000 lifetimes in cages in Guantanamo Bay, continually torturing them stripped naked with dogs biting at their genitals to see who defecates first, tying them up in contorted positions without food and water, or putting them to death 100,000 times repeatedly, is obviously quite impractical if one is to levy on them the Biblical “Thou shalt give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot” justice from their own books.
There is indeed no adequate punishment possible for monumental crimes – the crimes of conquerors. That only leads one to think that such monumental crimes, even the possibility of such monumental crimes occurring, must be prevented at all cost. That the traditional mantra of War Crimes Tribunal is a red herring, perhaps invented by the same monumental criminals for getting off easy if they are defeated or caught, because no earthly punishment can match their crimes.
Indeed, one can see the hypocrisy with which the Tribunals in Nuremberg and Tokyo were conducted. Just the legal definition of a War Crime was set by the victors to reflect all the “bad things they did that we didn't do” and “all the bad things we did are not war crimes for either side”. Thus the Allied carpet bombing of civilian population centers in Dresden and Tokyo, as well as the dropping of two Atomic bombs on the civilian industrial cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, were not classified as war crimes, and neither were the city bombings by the Nazi's all over Europe. President Truman obviously was not tried for war crimes for ordering the deaths of millions of Japanese civilians. But many were hung for breaking treaties and invading Eastern Europe, as well as for the Holocaust, all were declared as war crimes – neither of which the Allies themselves had done.
The Geneva Conventions that have since evolved for the “civilized” conduct of war and protection of Human Rights, does not explicitly state that dropping a Nuclear bomb is a war crime, possessing a weapon of mass destruction like a Nuclear bomb is a war crime, pursuing or adopting an aggressive policy of preemptive nuclear strikes on non-nuclear nations who cannot protect themselves for want of a similar deterrent, is a war crime, or, that war itself, is a war crime.
Thus while My Lai massacre in Vietnam is classified as a war crime, the sustained million ton bombing for a decade of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia with napalm and assorted cocktails of horrible deaths is not called a war crime. It's perpetuators in the name of ideology, American Presidents JFK, LBJ, and Nixon, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara (LBJ), and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger (Nixon), were never charged with the deaths of dispensable innocent civilians caught in a proxy war between super powers on their soil. What led to Richard Nixon's downfall? Not the million deaths he caused in Vietnam through a deceitful escalation of the war, but that he lied about his role in the bugging of his political opponent's headquarters!
Similarly, the team of President Carter and Zbigniew Brzezinski, Ronald Reagan and George Bush, all scot-free from any stains of war crimes in 1979-1988 in Afghanistan on their fine white civilized garments. Nor on the team of President Clinton and Madeleine Albright for the civilian deaths in Iraq in the 1990s under their dutifully maintained economic sanctions.
Wars fought by the West along ideological lines are not war crimes!
There is indeed no major deterrence for them, as victors in those Tribunals of WW II, for once again bombing densely populated cities in Iraq in this 2000's decade, destroying Faluja to rubble, or dropping a million tons of Depleted Uranium bombs each on both Iraq and Afghanistan that will continue to kill civilians mercilessly for generations long after the actual wars of plunder on the 'Grand Chessboard' are over.
And if eventually caught through sheer bad luck for crimes that were actually classified as war crimes, and subsequently endorsed in the Geneva Conventions and Human Rights Conventions – such as torture - they hope to play the same legal games that Augusto Pinochet and Ariel Sharon have been playing to prevent prosecution, and Henry Kissinger has been playing to not even be charged with any war crime.
Which is why the new Attorney General of the United States, Mr. Alberto Gonzalez has argued in his written memos to the White House that these Geneva Conventions on Human Rights for civilized and humane treatment of prisoners are now antiquated, and the United States should not feel compelled to abide by these treaties as it only gets in the way of fighting the “war on terrorism”.
Thus even if these monumental war criminals are eventually busted, they will at best serve out their remaining few years of life sentences in the relative comfort of “suitable” jails as the worst outcome – not in Guantanamo Bay, not stripped naked, not with rods up their assess, not as enemy combatants against humanity who should be brutally tortured day and night to extract all the secrets from the depths of their bowels, following their own Biblical “eye for an eye” notion of justice – neither to exceed nor reduce in punishment.
Indeed, Christians of all stripes will rush to show what it means to bring Jesus to these criminals with “forgive thine enemy” and “turn the other cheek”, but who remain impotent when George Bush brings his own Messianic brand of Christianity to bear: “Whether we bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done” with million tonnage of bombs, and brutality that knows no bounds.
The present understanding of “war crimes”, and any ex post facto construction of “war crimes Tribunals” is indeed anemic to say the least. It sets no precedence for prosecution of monumental Criminals (with a capital C) from among the victors of WW II. It presents no deterrence against committing crimes against humanity. Just witness Ariel Sharon – although indicted for war crimes against the Palestinian people in Lebanon for the massacres in Sabra and Shatila camps, and the Israeli Knesset itself held him accountable – yet he now roams as the famous “man of peace” and is committing new monumental crimes against humanity on a daily basis in occupied Palestine. His attack on the city of Jenin in 2003 was only mildly rebuked as he continues to boast: “Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.”
The “war on terrorism” and all its sponsors in the American Govt. – from the President down to the last advisor in his cabinet – all directly responsible for every single civilian and innocent death – and yet remain undeterred by any fear of accountability as they continue to wantonly wage even more horrible death and military occupation on civilian populations.
The people in the American nation, without fear of accountability or remorse, reelected the same war criminals for a second term who now talk of attacking Iran.
There is so little deterrence indeed, that the Neocons can blithely and publicly disclose their PNAC plans, Brzezinski can blithely accept responsibility for the destruction of Afghanistan as “some agitated Moslems”, and subsequently even print his new imperial quest in the book “The Grand Chessboard”, the White House can publicly disclose on its web site the National Security Council strategy of preemptive nuclear strikes on non-nuclear nations in contradiction to its earlier pledges to protect non-nuclear nations from nuclear strikes by anyone including the United States if they signed the NPT and did not seek this nuclear deterrence of their own!
No fear whatsoever.
Not having succeeded in deterring and preventing any barbaric Criminals from executing their monumental Crimes upon humanity once again, a new model for Monumental War Crimes Tribunals must be developed for the benefit of preventing new victims.
It must pack the power punch necessary for real deterrence of monumental war crimes by the next set of potential imperial conquerors in the future, ensure as fair a sense of restitution and compensation to the victims as humanly possible, and implement enormous national and international level retribution and punitive damages on the aggressor nation.
It must make the price for war crimes so high indeed, that nations and their peoples will be forced to rein in their own governments or become bankrupt into slavery for generations in posterity in paying compensations and punitive damages!
Entire nations must be held liable and called to account for creating and supporting these war criminals from among them. All those with “United We Stand” and “We support our troops” stickers on their cars are as much war criminals as the leaders they support.
Excuses like: 'I did not know', 'I was misled for waging a war in self-defense on another's soil because I am stupid and cannot think properly', or 'I reelected Mein Fuehrer President a second time because god talks to him' must not absolve the self proclaimed “naive” and “misled” war-mongering people of their own complicity in the monumental crimes, nor from paying compensation and punitive damages to their victims for generations.
They must pay the due ransom in order to reclaim their innocence only generations later. Such ransom, in trillions of dollars and no less (in 1950's dollars when it actually had some value), to be paid for generations by the culprit nations directly to the victims and their successor generations – for at least 200 years or however long it takes for all lingering effects of the injustices to physically, mentally, socially, and psychologically disappear. If we go by the example of the Jews, perhaps add another zero to that number as the former victims still continue to suffer from the 'victim complex' and continue to lash out to create new victims of their own in Palestine and in the world by being the key 'ubermensch' masterminds behind “imperial mobilization” and “all the evil that follows” its barbaric implementation.
The cleanup, reconstruction, and rehabilitation costs must all be borne by the culprit nations – with the restitution taking precedence over any domestic spendings.
Monumental crimes require monumental punishments. Only then can it deter.
If one is deemed smart enough to be entrusted a weapon to make war, one must also be deemed smart enough to know when not to do it - when the cost for doing so is made monumental!
Such principles as outlined above compel people to hold their leaders accountable – rather than adopt a laissez faire attitude that it does not concern them, or that they do not have control over their government, or there is no choice, or that they will be reviled and interned if they protest too loudly.
The consequence to not protesting efficaciously and allowing the injustices to prevail in their names now incurs a monumental penalty. Antiwar protests are not a career or a fun outing over the weekend with the family. It is a serious life and death struggle – as much a struggle for the people of the aggressor nation as for the ones at the receiving end of the warfare in remote nations!
People must feel compelled to acquire control over their governments and forever remain vigilant to what their government does in their names, in turn holding politicians, institutions, media, and press accountable for presenting a true and accurate picture of what transpires in the corridors of power. For not doing so also has a price associated with it. Living in a democracy is a privilege, as well as a responsibility. With responsibilities also come accountabilities.
It is the peoples job to ensure by any means necessary, by creating new institutions and new laws if necessary, and by abrogating old laws and old institutions when necessary, that the power entrusted to their government by them is only wielded in what the people deem to be in their nation's best interests, and in conformance with international laws for peaceful and equitable co-existence with other nations on the planet, even when these other nations be composed of weaker 'lower order life forms' or aliens from outer space.
Social and political Darwinism by parasitic leaders must extract a monumental penalty from their entire nation! A responsibility for which now ordinary people are held liable, draining essential wealth from their own social spendings and livelihoods to pay for generations in restitution costs.
Or else all pretenses to civilized existence be universally abandoned in favor of “Daarth Vaider Darwinism” – remembering that political pecking order continually evolves and is always supplanted by a new barbarian more vicious than the one it replaces.
Thus motivation towards equitable co-existence, of necessity for self-preservation, is a powerful impetus for heralding genuine non-fiction people powered Democracies (with a capital D) throughout the world, by setting the example first in the United States of America itself.
Such is the justice that shall be genuinely wrought by the innocent victims of this war on terrorism for a real non-fiction “Never Again”, for the benefit of all of mankind.

I often wonder if Jesus really has the power to wash away the sins of mass murderers of humanity who commit these monumental crimes in his name or to bring his arrival sooner? Is there some special exclusion clause that makes these monumental criminals exempt from Divine Justice?
Hmmm, perhaps I am in the wrong religion - my God assures us of Divine Justice - take a misstep in this life and you shall pay in the next. Kill one innocent person and it is akin to having killed entire humanity.
Wow, I dare not commit murder or become a suicide bomber out of sheer desperation while I am Muslim, or else I will have eternal damnation to look forward to.
May be I should become an Evangelical Christian first if I ever get mad enough? Or perhaps a Christian Zionist? Or maybe just a Zionist? For then I will be in the company of George Bush and he will surely save me. Doesn't he walk with the lord and communicate with him directly?
Na, such a hypocrite 'religion', whatever the name, and such a hypocrite 'savior', whatever its name, is not for me!
I just as soon take my chances in Islam where at least the God claims He is the "Most Just". For what other philosophy is there that is so firmly rooted in justice? Which other god has the same emphasis on justice? Perhaps the humanist's god? But they have no god, and with them, justice denied in the world, is justice denied period. But in Islam, there is a promise of fair justice that keeps a victim's hope alive. But I generally tend to be too impatient. Justice meted out elsewhere is also justice denied here - even when there is the firm promise of it in the future - I like to see it administered right here and now, for the victims too are right here and now.
But how is it even possible to punish for 100,000 murders? Rigorous imprisonment for 100,000 lifetimes with dogs snapping at the genitals 24x7 in a small hell hole in Guantanamo Bay seems so inadequate, even if taken straight from the Old Testament Commandment of eye for an eye, for we certainly don't want to exceed in the punishment, eye for an eye is just fine. But the problem is that the butchers of a hundred thousand, or a million, with devastation of entire civilizations, and directly responsible for “all the evil that follow[ed]” from their first aggression, with Depleted Uranium everywhere that will continue killing for untold more generations, the total crime can be in millions of 'human units'. Never mind the collateral 'environmental units'. Which is why I refer to their crimes as monumental. But the cowardly murderers will be dead in a few years, if not right off the bat the first day they see the dogs sniffing at their crotch as they are tied upside down and their heads dunked in their own urine and a rod up their hidden cavities - all the stuff meted out by the imperial soldiers of fortunes to innocent Muslim civilian prisoners arbitrarily held in prison camps dotting the destroyed landscapes of Iraq and Afghanistan in the most inhuman condition imaginable - eye for an eye, punishment from their own books.
How to administer it? For once administered, only then will it deter future monumental crimes. Otherwise what did the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunals ever deter?
Indeed, what earthly punishment can any genuine war crimes tribunal ever implement on a monumental war criminal to affect justice?
These bastards will croak in a day, they are already in their 60s.
How can one subject a monumental war criminal to an explosion of each Daisy Cutter that he authorized dropped, and each missile that he authorized fired, in accordance with the eye for an eye justice?
True eye for an eye justice is infeasible in modern times, isn't it? Which is why shouldn't modernity forcefully deter, and make impossible, monumental crimes before they occur?
Since modernity and its civilized harbingers have continually failed at that endeavor, I guess one would, after all, have to rely on Divine Justice to get real justice now wouldn't one?
I pray every time I remember my God, which these days is not too often any more, to execute His promise of Divine Justice. For it is indeed only such a promise that keeps me a bit sane every time a child falls with a bullet to his head in Palestine and I see another Zionist happy, another wedding party blown to bits and a Neo-con from the Pentagon stating they do not keep track of Iraqi and Afghani civilian casualties. But enough digressing.

Some reflections and musings
In my own mind, I often see myself shouting at the perpetuators of these monumental crimes inflicted upon humanity in the name of “war on terrorism”: 'You are despicable war criminals and I publicly call for your indictments for war crimes against humanity in an open public trial conducted by the victims, as the one held for Eichmann in Jerusalem.' But I cannot imagine what punishment on earth would atone for “Shock and Awe” bombing entire civilizations with depleted uranium bombs, murdering tens of thousands of innocent civilians including defenseless men, women, and children, and depriving many more of their kin, breadwinners, and loved ones. What does 10,000 years of rigorous imprisonment in Guantanamo Bay mean anyway – these guys are already in their 50s, 60s or 70s. Shouldn't punishments match the crimes? Isn't is as unfair to punish a black child who steals chocolates with the 'three-strikes and out for years in jail' law, as it is to ask perpetuators of monumental crimes to simply vacate their posts by the fancy names of “impeachment”? What do you think?
Monumental crimes must deserve monumental punishments.
We know what monumental crimes look like. We have seen them rehearsed not just over the past couple of years, but continually over several millennia of human history. Thus most people, possessing even a modicum of humanity, and an iota of commonsense, must easily recognize monumental crimes. But what is a befitting monumental punishment that can be awarded for these crimes? There can be no adequate atonement and compensation made once monumental crimes have occurred, try as a nation may for generations. Impeachment and getting the criminals out of office is hardly sufficient (though rather necessary if only to hold up the pretense of an advanced civilizations' justice at work). This begets the axiomatic truth that monumental crimes must be prevented from occurring to start with. One cannot wait until the receipts for the ordering of such crimes are found, as the perpetuators seldom leave one behind, and generally maintain the alibis of “plausible deniability”. By the time people wake up to their deeds, the bomber bays have already dropped their payloads.
To stop these handful of misanthropes who command the vast armies of State to indulge in their various ideological fantasies, before they can commence their monumental offenses against humanity, is a responsibility jointly shared by all human kind. But a responsibility more closely shared by the people whose leaders engage in it, especially when they live in a democracy.

Indeed. We may have descended from the tree-top, we have yet to lose our tail.
Only the dead have seen the end of injustice. The living must continue to endure it.
Happy New Year 2019!

Pakistan Case Study in National Loss of Ethics

November 21, 2018 | Last updated November 30, 2018
The academic fraud I had serendipitously uncovered in 2011 is simply momentous in its implications of how a corrupt system itself creates the self-sustaining problem of fraud and deceit in Pakistan's academe. The system automatically creates a state of equilibrium where people are inextricably caught in the very “banality of evil”, rising to the highest levels of mediocrity in the course of natural adjustment to it. Intellectual and ethical corruption is systemic in Pakistan's academia. Those tasked with policing are themselves co-opted and thriving comfortably in the system without ethics, in the society without ethics, in the nation without ethics --- and from which all the rest of the evils naturally follow!
Not having ethics and moral compunction in Pakistan is considered being pragmatist, savvy, street smart and going places; those with any moral compunction simply languish in obscurity and are thought to be plain stupid. A nation of cowards and sycophants living off the public exchequer deserve a lot more... From top to bottom, our national character has become thuggery in virginal dresses and white shirts. Every one of them a scholar and saint!
Is this state of affairs by happenstance alone due to Pakistanis' inexplicable innate mediocrity and poor sense of ethics compared to other nations --- or, is this state of affairs by Machiavellian design? Pakistani society has systematically eaten itself up from within from its once stellar position in the early 1960s through early 1970s when ethical standards and intellectual calibre stood out.
The destruction of Pakistan's higher and lower education systems ever since Pakistan became a nuclear power, has visibly manufactured mainly multi-generational human resource supply-chain fodder, of fanatics, useful idiots, mental midgets and mercenaries as the main bulwark of its intellectual, political, social, economic, and military fronts --- is it merely coincidental that nuclear Pakistan ever since, is also ruled by house niggers always out with a begging bowl, irrespective of the style of government, from military dictatorship to faux democracy?

Caveat Emptor

Please be advised that Project HumanbeingsfirstTM fully cooperates with all law enforcement and other governmental agencies worldwide in rooting out Terrorism in all its nuanced shades and stripes in order to end its Neanderthal reign of terror upon all who are human beings first. Project Humanbeingsfirst does not distinguish between terrorists clad in turbans and those wearing suits, nor between the predatory rampages of the pirates vs. the emperors, albeit each is apportioned the measure of crime and guilt commensurate to their respective station of power and impact on their victims. Law enforcement personnel worldwide, but especially in the United States and the West, are encouraged to participate with Project Humanbeingsfirst. It is essential for all nations' state security apparatus to learn how to forensically identify the monumental supreme terrorists hiding in plain sight among us under legal cover, the real merchants of death, while they dutifully chase down the easy to spot handful of often deliberately manufactured pirates at sea.
