Challenges to Journalism Reform - How?

September 24, 2009 | Updated Tuesday, January 22, 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] [1g] – 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?
1. The word "freedom," which can be interpreted in various ways, is defined by us as follows -
2. Freedom is the right to do what which the law allows. This interpretation of the word will at the proper time be of service to us, because 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.
3. We shall deal with the press in the following way: what is the part played by the press to-day? It serves to excite and inflame those passions which are needed for our purpose or else it serves selfish ends of parties. It is often vapid, unjust, mendacious, and the majority of the public have not the slightest idea what ends the press really serves. We shall saddle and bridle it with a tight curb: we shall do the same also with all productions of the printing press, for where would be the sense of getting rid of the attacks of the press if we remain targets for pamphlets and books? The produce of publicity, which nowadays is a source of heavy expense owing to the necessity of censoring it, will be turned by us into a very lucrative source of income to our State: we shall law on it a special stamp tax and require deposits of caution-money before permitting the establishment of any organ of the press or of printing offices; these will then have to guarantee our government against any kind of attack on the part of the press. For any attempt to attack us, if such still be possible, we shall inflict fines without mercy. Such measures as stamp tax, deposit of caution-money and fines secured by these deposits, will bring in a huge income to the government. It is true that party organs might not spare money for the sake of publicity, but these we shall shut up at the second attack upon us. No one shall with impunity lay a finger on the aureole of our government infallibility. The pretext for stopping any publication will be the alleged plea that it is agitating the public mind without occasion or justification. I BEG YOU TO NOTE THAT AMONG THOSE MAKING ATTACKS UPON US WILL ALSO BE ORGANS ESTABLISHED BY US, BUT THEY WILL ATTACK EXCLUSIVELY POINTS THAT WE HAVE PRE-DETERMINED TO ALTER.
4. NOT A SINGLE ANNOUNCEMENT WILL REACH THE PUBLIC WITHOUT OUR CONTROL. Even now this is already being attained by us inasmuch as all news items are received by a few agencies, in whose offices they are focused from all parts of the world. These agencies will then be already entirely ours and will give publicity only to what we dictate to them.
5. If already now we have contrived to possess ourselves of the minds of the [untermensch] communities to such an extent the they all come near looking upon the events of the world through the colored glasses of those spectacles we are setting astride their noses; if already now there is not a single State where there exist for us any barriers to admittance into what [untermensch] stupidity calls State secrets: what will our positions be then, when we shall be acknowledged supreme lords of the world in the person of our king of all the world ....
6. Let us turn again to the FUTURE OF THE PRINTING PRESS. Every one desirous of being a publisher, librarian, or printer, will be obliged to provide himself with the diploma instituted therefore, which, in case of any fault, will be immediately impounded. With such measures THE INSTRUMENT OF THOUGHT WILL BECOME AN EDUCATIVE MEANS ON THE HANDS OF OUR GOVERNMENT, WHICH WILL NO LONGER ALLOW THE MASS OF THE NATION TO BE LED ASTRAY IN BY-WAYS AND FANTASIES ABOUT THE BLESSINGS OF PROGRESS. Is there any one of us who does not know that these phantom blessings are the direct roads to foolish imaginings which give birth to anarchical relations of men among themselves and towards authority, because progress, or rather the idea of progress, has introduced the conception of every kind of emancipation, but has failed to establish its limits .... All the so-called liberals are anarchists, if not in fact, at any rate in thought. Every one of them in hunting after phantoms of freedom, and falling exclusively into license, that is, into the anarchy of protest for the sake of protest ....
7. We turn to the periodical press. We shall impose on it, as on all printed matter, stamp taxes per sheet and deposits of caution- money, and books of less than 30 sheets will pay double. We shall reckon them as pamphlets in order, on the one hand, to reduce the number of magazines, which are the worst form of printed poison, and, on the other, in order that this measure may force writers into such lengthy productions that they will be little read, especially as they will be costly. At the same time what we shall publish ourselves to influence mental development in the direction laid down for our profit will be cheap and will be read voraciously. The tax will bring vapid literary ambitions within bounds and the liability to penalties will make literary men dependent upon us. And if there should be any found who are desirous of writing against us, they will not find any person eager to print their productions in print the publisher or printer will have to apply to the authorities for permission to do so. Thus we shall know beforehand of all tricks preparing against us and shall nullify them by getting ahead with explanations on the subject treated of.
8. Literature and journalism are two of the most important educative forces, and therefore our government will become proprietor of the majority of the journals. This will neutralize the injurious influence of the privately-owned press and will put us in possession of a tremendous influence upon the public mind .... If we give permits for ten journals, we shall ourselves found thirty, and so on in the same proportion. This, however, must in no wise be suspected by the public. For which reason all journals published by us will be of the most opposite, in appearance, tendencies and opinions, thereby creating confidence in us and bringing over to us quite unsuspicious opponents, who will thus fall into our trap and be rendered harmless.
9. In the front rank will stand organs of an official character. They will always stand guard over our interests, and therefore their influence will be comparatively insignificant.
10. In the second rank will be the semi-official organs, whose part it will be to attack the tepid and indifferent.
11. In the third rank we shall set up our own, to all appearance, off position, which, in at least one of its organs, will present what looks like the very antipodes to us. Our real opponents at heart will accept this simulated opposition as their own and will show us their cards.
12. All our newspapers will be of all possible complexions - aristocratic, republican, revolutionary, even anarchical - for so long, of course, as the constitution exists .... Like the Indian idol "Vishnu" they will have a hundred hands, and every one of them will have a finger on any one of the public opinions as required. When a pulse quickens these hands will lead opinion in the direction of our aims, for an excited patient loses all power of judgment and easily yields to suggestion. Those fools who will think they are repeating the opinion of a newspaper of their own camp will be repeating our opinion or any opinion that seems desirable for us. In the vain belief that they are following the organ of their party they will, in fact, follow the flag which we hang out for them.
13. In order to direct our newspaper militia in this sense we must take special and minute care in organizing this matter. Under the title of central department of the press we shall institute literary gatherings at which our agents will without attracting attention issue the orders and watchwords of the day. By discussing and controverting, but always superficially, without touching the essence of the matter, our organs will carry on a sham fight fusillade with the official newspapers solely for the purpose of giving occasion for us to express ourselves more fully than could well be done from the outset in official announcements, whenever, of course, that is to our advantage.
15. Methods of organization like these, imperceptible to the public eye but absolutely sure, are the best calculated to succeed in bringing the attention and the confidence of the public to the side of our government. Thanks to such methods we shall be in a position as from time to time may be required, to excite or to tranquilize the public mind on political questions, to persuade or to confuse, printing now truth, now lies, facts or their contradictions, according as they may be well or ill received, always very cautiously feeling our ground before stepping upon it .... WE SHALL HAVE A SURE TRIUMPH OVER OUR OPPONENTS SINCE THEY WILL NOT HAVE AT THEIR DISPOSITION ORGANS OF THE PRESS IN WHICH THEY CAN GIVE FULL AND FINAL EXPRESSION TO THEIR VIEWS owing to the aforesaid methods of dealing with the press. We shall not even need to refute them except very superficially.
16. Trial shots like these, fired by us in the third rank of our press, in case of need, will be energetically refuted by us in our semi-official organs.
17. Even nowadays, already, to take only the French press, there are forms which reveal masonic solidarity in acting on the watchword: all organs of the press are bound together by professional secrecy; like the augurs of old, not one of their numbers will give away the secret of his sources of information unless it be resolved to make announcement of them. Not one journalist will venture to betray this secret, for not one of them is ever admitted to practice literature unless his whole past has some disgraceful sore or other .... These sores would be immediately revealed. So long as they remain the secret of a few the prestige of the journalist attacks the majority of the country - the mob follow after him with enthusiasm.
18. Our calculations are especially extended to the provinces. It is indispensable for us to inflame there those hopes and impulses with which we could at any moment fall upon the capital, and we shall represent to the capitals that these expressions are the independent hopes and impulses of the provinces. Naturally, the source of them will be always one and the same - ours. WHAT WE NEED IS THAT, UNTIL SUCH TIME AS WE ARE IN THE PLENITUDE POWER, THE CAPITALS SHOULD FIND THEMSELVES STIFLED BY THE PROVINCIAL OPINION OF THE NATIONS, I.E., OF A MAJORITY ARRANGED BY OUR AGENTUR. What we need is that at the psychological moment the capitals should not be in a position to discuss an accomplished fact for the simple reason, if for no other, that it has been accepted by the public opinion of a majority in the provinces.

A challenge to the aspiring reformers of the Journalism Profession 9 / 9

My Naya Pakistan

Monday January 14, 2019
The answer for what is My Naya Pakistan, 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; to live like a lion among wolves!
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 in my Open Letter to Imran Khan. The celebrity 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”.
Footnote *
A précis of what makes this separation of religion and state a categorical imperative for a pluralistic, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, multi-sect, wholly mongrel heterogeneous country like Pakistan arbitrarily carved out on the Grand Chessboard, is in my open letter to Naya Pakistan Makers. Its existential necessity is self-evident. This separation, by the necessity of reality of hard facts on the ground, shall not automatically imply “secular” nor any of the labels used by the West to market its “democracy” to the East. It only means giving space to all who live in that nation without the supremacy of any group upon others just because of their demographic numbers or their degree of bloated self-righteousness, i.e., “democracy”. Even 99% residents of the state sharing commonly held beliefs must not be able to dictate the political rights to 1% who might not share in those beliefs. That's called a Constitutional Republic.
A sensible and evidentiary 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 policy principles, and egalitarian international Treaties and Conventions in a predatory world in which primacy is exercised by legal cunning, is in my report Path Forward: Impacting Muslim Existence with Qur'anic Political Science. Here are some pertinent passages that summarize the basic concept. For detailed study from which this report is adapted, see my book Hijacking Holy Qur'an And Islam, 2nd Edition 2015.
Begin Excerpt
The power of political sagaciousness and beneficial mutual co-existence inherent in the Determinate verse 5:48 of Surah Al-Maeda both checkmates, and preempts, all internecine warfare among Muslims. No outside or inside Machiavelli can harvest Muslim cracks and lacunas with the universal adoption of verse 5:48 as part of the state constitution where diverse Muslim sects live in any substantial numbers and permitted to practice their religion with state protection of their rights. Those religious rights can be made contingent on the directives of the very religion that is being accorded state political rights. It is akin to making the Biblical Golden Rule “Do unto others as you have others do unto you” the cornerstone of all nations' constitutions by international law.
Consequently, regardless of which Muslim sect or political group defines their nation's philosophical and national characteristics:
    • if they employ the Determinate verse 5:48 of Surah Al-Maeda as the cornerstone of their state's constitution ;
    • if they espouse the fairness expressed in the Biblical Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you have others do unto you”, and adopt the powerful corollary that naturally falls out of it as their force majeure to preempt exploitation: “no one shall take unfair advantage of another” ;
    • and if they make these worthy first principles of fairness and justice the very foundation of their governance structures whereby all civil, political, and religious rights are accorded to its citizens irrespective of their own theological beliefs with equality and without prejudice, both in theory and in practice ;
then such a state would be sufficiently Islamic to legitimately call itself an “Islamic state” – even if it was entirely a secular state!
It would be irrespective of the rest of its colorful artifacts, whether theologically drawn from the Indeterminates and therefore not something to be sown discord over as verse 3:7 clearly avers, or a separation of state and religion in terms of the philosophical outlook of the state itself!
What does it matter to the ordinary man and woman what type of state it is if the state gives the public the liberty to better themselves in fairness, justice, is not exploitive, does not usurp, does not plunder, is not a vassal of foreign powers, and lends all its denizens the opportunity to believe and practice as a community what they each commonly hold sacred?
As one can immediately see, an almost infinite array of diverse governance systems are possible under that enlightened rubric – only limited by the creative energies of the people and their enlightened stewards. The stony silence of the Holy Qur'an on the governance structure, and its explicit categorical articulation of the general social principles to enact among Muslims in its Determinates, yields only this logical deduction, and no other!
This isn't a utopia. Many Muslim governments exist today – they can just as easily adopt the political recommendations noted above to eliminate fratricide and foster amity among Muslims in their own nations. That would of course only be possible if these states were themselves not part of this Machiavellian fratricide, state sponsored, both nationally and globally, as surrogate vassals of the hectoring hegemons.
Therefore, if any presumptuously “Islamic” state sheds the blood of Muslims in the name of Islam, sows discord, then it is clearly not an Islamic state by definition of the religion of Islam – but a tyrannical state no different than any other tyrannical state, Islam's lofty symbols proudly adorning its national flag notwithstanding.
What is perhaps of utmost most significance however, is the recognition that the Hectoring Hegemons not only perceptively understand these matters concerning the religion of Islam, they also understand the cracks, fissures, and lacunas among the Muslim sects, and how to both tickle these further, and how to harvest the subsequent fruits. They know how to invent new sects just as well as they know how to create revolutions by harnessing the indigenous discontent which they ab initio create in the first place.
As in recent past, internecine warfare is the unnatural destiny that has been planned for Muslims in the twenty-first century as well – and they had better wizen up before it is enacted on the scale which has been apportioned. To appreciate the urgency, and just how much of an existential necessity it is to immediately overcome sectarianism which continues to directly play into the hands of hectoring hegemons, see the excerpt from the political novel (or historical fiction) “Memoirs Of Mr. Hempher, The British Spy To The Middle East” ( It is sure to distress the naïve and the erudite mind alike to learn just how accurately the hectoring hegemons understand and exploit the cracks and lacunas among the two major sects of Islam comprising nearly 99 percent of the 1.6 to 2 billion Muslims on planet earth today.

To Naya Pakistan Makers

If Pakistan was exclusively only occupied by one group of people who commonly believed in the divinity of their own theological and political dispensation just as fervently as Zionists do, whatever the theological, sectarian or tribal inclination might be, then, and only then, just like the Zionists living in the 'land without a people for a people without land' (were that a fact), the Pakistanis too would have had every right to construct their own divine nation's exclusive constitution, exceptional laws, and theological and political dispensation any which way they liked.
As a thought experiment, Pakistanis could then have even chosen to be surrounded by 18 feet high electrified fences around their entire geography to keep all outsiders from polluting their sacred theology and sacred geography just like the Zionists prefer it. Today, Pakistanis are merely fencing their borders for keeping out 'terrorists', but that definition can be evolved easily to keep out all those undesired by the uber alles (German word for the chosen ones who deem themselves exceptional and above all others in their rights).
And, per chance, if there was only such group left on the entire earth, these remnants of civilizations long lost could believe and do absolutely whatever they wanted irrespective of who else was outside their dominion (there'd obviously be no one else). Soon they'd start differentiating among themselves on other rubrics, and before long, they'd have all killed off each other as the undesirables, leaving only one man or woman standing (if at all). In either case, that'd be the end of mankind. The notion of separation therefore, in every social Darwinian sense, and in the limit of philosophical reasoning, leads to the extinction of the species.
Fortunately, for the Zionists occupying the Holy Lands, and for the people of Pakistan also occupying their own holy land, there are many peoples of differing beliefs and political inclinations who not only live in these two divine territories on earth, but are also their neighbors in an endless loop of interdependence that reaches over the entire earth's population. Allah, and Nature, have given mankind the natural ability to survive and prosper only due to this diversity.
The Zionists however have been trying their level best to undo nature. They have been attempting to cleanse their holy land by exterminating all those unlike them, and when they are being merciful, by forcing resettlement of the indigenous natives and the undesirables to territories outside of Eretz Yisrael. They are only repulsed in their efforts by the non-cooperation of the natives who stubbornly resist the divine gift of their birthplace to the god's chosen peoples.
But Pakistan? Which group should be the chosen equivalent from among its myriad peoples, ethnicities, sects, tribes?
Ergo, since none of us are like the Zionists, thankfully, we must all live together in equal status.
For, if that exclusivity and exceptionalism is permitted to any one group in any pluralistic society, and specifically in Pakistan, then, by the law of nature, those with the bigger guns, or bigger population, or higher predatory survival instincts, would naturally prevail, making that exercise in primacy no different than the Zionists' claim to exclusivity of the holy land by the law of the jungle and social Darwinianism: might makes right.
Minimally, this Darwinian dispensation makes a mockery of any and all claims to divinity. And with even a slight change in power calculus, the guns of primacy are easily re-pointed in their own direction. Power is a most fickle-minded beloved indeed. Like the bee, it moves from flower to flower based on season. This is just the empirical lesson of history. And egalitarianism in diversity appears to be a faithful and immutable law for the survival of civilization.
So, in order to not be like the Zionists hell-bent on national suicide, what's the best way to avoid exceptionalism such that none enjoy higher status based on theology, race, ethnicity, or tribe, nor exercise exclusivity upon another on any political or apolitical mantra?
In a letter I explained it thusly:

As you already know and is necessary to state here for completeness, not just many different types of Muslim people, Muslim sects, and racial and ethnic and cultural divides exist in Pakistan, just like in India, each with their own understanding of what is Islam, but also a substantial non Muslim minority also exists in Pakistan --- the white portion of Pakistan's flag. Like yourself, I find this rather discordant with the times. One size antediluvian Islamic Sharia laws (derived 1200 years ago by men now long dead, as you also continually point out to your own fawning flock of secular humanists in both India and Canada), cannot, and do not, suit all Muslim sects today, let alone people of other religions living in that state, and which, by definition, lead to discrimination based on belief system. The band-aid for this in our subcontinent is the still existent Personal Law invented by the British colonizers for ease of colonial governance of a pluralistic multicultural society. Its significance of course is more pertinent in India today than in Pakistan where its Constitution is mostly "Sunni Islamic". Whereas, my understanding is that their respective Personal Law governs Muslims and other minorities in India, while the secular Indian Constitution governs the majority, as well as others when not in conflict with their Personal Law. I am not sure which prevails when these might be in conflict, but I imagine Personal Law would, that being its raison d'être, and that is just absurd in a modern nation-state for both the egalitarian constitution and a parochial system to co-exist. What for, except for intellectual laziness, or primacy, or both!
The British invented the Personal Law for India's many religions in order to pacify the Indian subcontinent so that they could rape and plunder their Jewel in the crown quite peaceably, and continue to exercise their effectiveness as the ruling state of the world for over two centuries. The British empire did not much care which idiotic beliefs (from their point of view), and which azan, the colonized slaves preferred for themselves --- they held them all in equal contempt quite generously as per their la mission civilisatrice --- and they gave to each flavor of their slave their own preference of religious laws so long as these did not interfere with the business of Pax Britannia and the harvesting of their colonies.
The Personal Law was a handy band-aid to administer the slave colonies and this should finally be obvious to the Muslims of the subcontinent. Like all the rest of the vestiges of colonial existence, from our Penal code to street names to education system to language co-option, it also needs to be exorcised in favor of one set of laws for all under one constitution for all. And this applies to the entire subcontinent.
I don't quite understand why it is not obvious to Muslims that the antediluvian Sharia laws are unable to keep up with the principal values of modern nation-states to lend egalitarian justice and fairness to all its peoples. As for instance, in the matter of triple talaq debate in India where you most eloquently point out the bizzaredom of antiquity that is so discordant with modernity. The same debate exists in Pakistan, but is more muted, and I am sure also in Bangladesh. Modern world has moved on a bit from that time when women were treated as mostly chattel and for bearing babies, but the foundation of Personal Law that the British empire instituted to pacify the pluralistic population of India have not kept up with the advancements in civilizations and our understanding of our place in the universe.
However, in fairness to the public's rights to choose their own governance and not be dictated from the mount of the white man's burden, it should also be stated that for monolithic theological states where only one type of belief might exist among its peoples, or, where the people have come to agree to live by a min-set of religious beliefs common to them all because they do want to live by their own religious principles for all spheres of life, it is the peoples' right to choose whatever rules and laws they wish to devise for their theological state without discrimination among their own peoples and without exercising primacy upon others. And there is nothing in principle, that might preclude a religion based theocratic state in such a monolithic circumstance. While I think this is largely of academic interest in modern times, it still needs to be stated because the foundation principles of any modern state must be only that which give justice and fairness of opportunities to its peoples, to grow and flourish to the best that they can become. In practice however, all modern nation states, except perhaps Iran, have a pluralistic population and therefore, in our modernity, such a separation between religion and state is mandated by necessity, of having one single set of fair laws for all that give fair justice to all without discrimination.

Here are some essays that explore different aspects of living in a pluralistic society such as Pakistan, and an essay, my very first as Project Humanbeingsfirst circa early 2007, on living peaceably in Zionistan (short of ethnic cleansing succeeding) before Allah, fate, karma, yahwah, voodoo politics, and enslaved Muslim masses finally coming together in the common cause of liberty, forcibly alter the direction of the guns from which there shall neither be any escape nor any sympathy for any uber alles.
Now is the time to fear the wrath of minorities, all minorities, wherever they might live, and the oppressed, howsoever they are subjugated (whether by law or by theology), before the tables are turned by the power of injustice, and the caprice of fate, to rectify itself.

Dear Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mr. Imran Khan:
Continuing Project ReGenesis Pakistan from Part-4 in this Part-5 of my Open Letter.
4.0 Full Spectrum Alliances
Today I expand upon the necessity of the doctrine of Full Spectrum Deterrence to counter the doctrine of Full Spectrum Dominance on the Grand Chessboard. Atomic bombs do not create this deterrence. One cannot eat nuclear weapons to stave off hunger. Pakistan is even unable to use its nuclear arsenal to deter drone attacks on its own territories and the indiscriminate killings of its own innocent peoples from the air. Neither do nuclear weapons protect against fourth and fifth generation warfare which is fought from within to destroy nations from the inside; nor do nuclear weapons protect against economic warfare that is waged both from within with ineffective and corrupt governments brought to the helm who aid in the destruction of their own societies with calculated policies of ineptness, and from outside with economic sanctions.
We see the truth of these observations from the disintegration of the nuclear armed superpower of yesteryear, the USSR, to the democracy revolutions and insurgency vs. counter-insurgency warfare throughout the Middle East, the most recent being the disintegration of Syria, to Iran under economic sanctions weakening the state itself, to Pakistan being victim of its own mercenary elites who eagerly serve the massa.
Modern warfare is not merely armed to the teeth armies facing off each other in the battlefield in clearly identified uniforms so one can identify the enemy. That's third generation warfare in military terminology, now deemed too expensive and inefficient in superpower doctrines of global domination. It is deemed useful in only controlled engagements, and mainly against a defenseless foe where victory is not just assured as per the Art of War, but an endless engagement can be maintained for military and political purposes quite unrelated to the war itself. Afghanistan has been suffering third generation warfare for at least two generations now. Afghanistan is also the only society left on earth where such engagement can be organically sustained for as long as necessary.
It is no secret that today on the Grand Chessboard, modern warfare spans the full gamut of deceit, from the ubiquitous war on terror that lends the necessary pretexts, to the more debilitating economic warfare to force nations to heel, to the entirely beneath the surface destruction of societies and nations from within so that they lose not just their ability to defend themselves, but also their will.
The source of Pakistan's full spectrum dysfunction is fundamentally due to this unrecognized modern warfare imposed on it by the superpower du jour. Just as the Indian sub-continent had initially failed to recognize the war imposed on her by the East India Company, Pakistan too has continually failed to recognize the war imposed on her under the pillow-talk of the United States of America and its congeries of exporting American culture, American Aid, American bailouts, American payments for mercenary services rendered, American NGOs, American think-tanks, the World Bank, IMF, ADB, the UN, WTO, Globalization, Free Trade; all Trojan horse instruments for exercising hegemony by the United States. These instruments are not much different in purpose than the singular East India Company's role in simpler times for sustaining the British Empire over her primitive colonies for hundreds of years.
This is not called modernity. This is called naked primacy, naked aggression, naked enslavement of resource-rich nations no different in purpose than under colonial rule. Today it is only disguised as modernity. It is even sold and packaged to our respectable noble elites thusly:
'Today's Uncle Tom doesn't wear a handkerchief on his head. This modern, twentieth-century Uncle Thomas now often wears a top hat. He's usually well-dressed and well-educated. He's often the personification of culture and refinement. The twentieth-century Uncle Thomas sometimes speaks with a Yale or Harvard accent. Sometimes he is known as Professor, Doctor, Judge, and Reverend, even Right Reverend Doctor. This twentieth-century Uncle Thomas is a professional Negro ... by that I mean his profession is being a Negro for the white man.'
--- Malcolm X, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, 1964, 1999 hardcover edition, Chapter Black Muslims, page 265
'The white establishment is skilled in flattering and cultivating emerging leaders. It presses its own image on them and finally, from imitation of manners, dress, and style of living, a deeper strain of corruption develops. This kind of Negro leader acquires the white man’s contempt for the ordinary Negro. He is often more at home with the middle-class white than he is among his own people. His language changes, his location changes, his income changes, and ultimately he changes from the representative of the Negro to the white man into the white man’s representative to the Negro. The tragedy is that too often he does not recognize what has happened to him.'
--- Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope, page 307
The utter contempt and disdain in which the modern massa holds its Uncle Tom is not a state secret either:
'A lot has been said and written by some of our American friends about the price of a Pakistani. Dr. Andrew V. Corry, US Counsel General at Lahore, once said, “Price of a Pakistani oscillates between a free trip to the US and a bottle of whisky.” He may not be too far wrong. We did observe some highly placed Pakistanis selling their conscience, prestige, dignity and self-respect for a small price.'
--- Brig. Tirmazi, Profiles of Intelligence, Ch 3, page 45
That's why we are here --- our ineffective governments and our national obsession with systemic corruption are merely the effects. Not the first cause.
To defend against this full spectrum warfare requires far more courage, wherewithal, self-respect, dignity, political and intellectual sophistication than is common to the Uncle Tom geniuses of Pakistan.
First and foremost, it requires recognizing that Pakistan is in fact under active undeclared fourth and fifth gen warfare on the Grand Chessboard. Otherwise she can never fully comprehend what's happening to her due to misdiagnosis.
It also requires recognizing that this war cannot be fought by a slave state suffering the Stockholm syndrome (seeking help from one's own jailor). Otherwise, like the half-doctor forever putting Band-Aids on cancer patients and feeling satisfied with his treatment plan despite the patient dying, even the honest Uncle Tom leader can forever chase effects and die holily in bed with the nation still laboring under the jackboots of the massa.
Do you, Mr. Prime Minister, have the courage of your convictions to face the grotesque reality of the Grand Chessboard outlined in the Introduction above? Are you a visionary leader who can think at multiple levels simultaneously?
I am going to take a giant leap of faith and assume that your Pathan blood is a lot thicker than water, and your mind far sharper than your own heroes who founded Pakistan, first in intellectual thought, and subsequently in political activism. As the late iconoclast intellect of Pakistan, Ardeshir Cowasjee, once wrote to me as I endeavored to explain to him our national myths: Now that we are here, what can we do?
What can we do indeed?
I am going to take a giant leap of faith and assume that you actually wish to do something about our pawn status that forces us to always be out with the begging bowl through Machiavellian debt enslavement, and we end up providing prostitution services to the massa in return. I am going to presume that in your heart of hearts, you wish to stop our macro abuse by the hectoring hegemons, those who install puppets and ineffective governments to service their needs. And I am also going to presume, perhaps gratuitously, that while your sentiments are in the right place, you don't quite know intellectually how to go about it principally because you are surrounded by Uncle Toms and House Niggers. Habitual slaves, Mr. Prime Minister, weaned on the crumbs falling from the massa's table, cannot be counted on to lend advice of seeking liberty from the massa.
I am sorry but I see you only surrounded by House Niggers. If you wish to know what that term means, please visit Malcolm X. I documented our national acumen among our brightest minds in the study of modern mental colonization: FAQ What is an Intellectual Negro?. To my observation, the term House Nigger applies to virtually all notable members of your cabinet, economic advisors, military advisors, political allies, parliament, judiciary, and to our English enabled elitist culture in general. If you are hesitant in accepting that observation and demand facts, please see my 2007 Open Letter to the Chief of Pakistan's military, and my January 25, 2018 Open Letter to the Chief of Pakistan's judiciary. The singular challenge to our nation to think beyond the massa's largesses cuts through all our national institutions, and all our rank and file, not just our elites.
Is it a closely guarded state secret Mr. Prime Minister that most of us are born into mental captivity in Pakistan, are easily co-opted into serving the massa one way or another the moment we step into adulthood, often under the pretext of earning an honest livelihood when we are honest, and serving our own narrow self-interests as mercenaries when we are not so honest? And that we die celebrating the massa and his civilization, proudly bequeathing this legacy of mental servitude to the next generation year after year? Haven't our best minds been reduced to not even being able to recognize that fact anymore? These best minds on your team Mr. Prime Minister, from whom you seek advice on how to run the affairs of the state, are infected with this very cross around their neck.
However, I am certain Mr. Prime Minister, that this abominable plague from the West no longer infects your mind. That you have succeeded in freeing yourself from the shackles of brown sahib mentality which Lord Macaulay diabolically crafted for us in 1835 with the following policy prescription before the British Parliament: “We must at present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern, --a class of persons Indian in blood and colour, but English in tastes, in opinions, in morals and in intellect.”
This admittedly Pollyannaish belief in you Mr. Prime Minister, is the principal motivation behind these series of bold and candid Open Letters to you. I do not know if you will ever be made aware of them, let alone read them. I do what I can with my lonely pen without power. But you have power, and will soon become powerless in power, unless you perceptively come to understand the diabolical forces that have made Pakistan the basket case nation that it is today. These forces are not about to lay down their arms just because an honest man has become the Prime Minister of their golden goose.
Mr. Prime Minister, survival on the Grand Chessboard is not the gentlemanly game of cricket that you learned from the English massa while they diabolically enslaved us for over two hundred years in the most un gentlemanly game of colonization.
You cannot compete with their legatees du jour with the coterie of nincompoops that you have surrounded yourself with. You cannot win this game with a weak team that has no intellectual capacity to break the shackles of servitude, that spins on a dime, and the best among whom are either idealist dreamers like you thinking this is a game of cricket and we shall prevail, or belong to the same feudal class of mercenaries that is dependent on the massa's favors for their own survival.
But, if you stop thinking of your self-ascribed divine mandate as the game of cricket, and instead pick up on the Art of War, we, we the people, and we the nation, with the same crop of peoples, have a fighting chance.
That's what great leaders are made of, and I can already sense that you aspire to be such a leader who can light the fire in the mind of man; who can inspire us to rise beyond our limitations. It is because of this belief that I have tentatively accepted your explanation that you have to play with the team that you have got.
As the one who forged liberty for the United States of America, Patrick Henry, pleaded with his own selfish and generally comatose elites not much different than ours some 243 years ago:
'There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free--if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending--if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained--we must fight!
I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger?
Will it be the next week, or the next year?
Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a Xe guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength but irresolution and inaction?
Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?
Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us.
Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us.
The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. ...
There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Baluchistan to the mountains of the Tribal Belt!
The war is inevitable--and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace--but there is no peace.
The war is actually begun!
The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms!
Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have?
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?
Forbid it, Almighty God!
I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!'
--- Adapted from Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death,
Patrick Henry,
March 23, 1775.
Please permit me to show you how to break the chains of servitude. Albeit, only as a field nigger, a common man who, like Malcolm X, while having lived most of his adult life in the United States, utilized her vast libraries, read her best minds, observed her worst statecraft, and has come away unimpressed by her divine la mission civilisatrice, her ongoing white man's burden. You might remember Mr. Prime Minister, that your own hero whom you cite often and give credit for your Islamic metanoia, “Sir” Allama Iqbal, does have the imperial title “Sir” attached to his name. Perhaps you have forgotten what it meant to be anointed the Knight of the British Empire and for rendering what kind of services to the Crown! Like the rest of Pakistani intelligentsia and our virtuous pulpits, you too claim to be divinely inspired by “Sir” Allama Iqbal's pious words. And like everyone else, you too have evidently paid scant attention to his actual un pious acts, of both commission and omission, in support of his own massa. I have analyzed these facts and observations in: Allama Iqbal - marde-momin or superman?. I invite you to scrutinize it with the emotional detachment necessary to overcome national myths and sacred mythologies that public heroes often come wrapped in.
National myths are easily busted with even an iota of emotional detachment only if learning the real truth of any matter is important. In my report: The UK Indian Independence Act, 1947, 18th July 1947 - Discovering The “Divine Destiny” of Pakistan, I bust the predominant myth behind the construction of Pakistan. The reality of fait accompli of history however, now pragmatically demands what Cowasjee hath said: Now that we are here, what can we do. That is the important matter today; not holding on to sacred myths on how we came about which easily indoctrinate us into false beliefs. These only lead us astray. You have publicly stated your mission to be to craft Medina-like welfare state in “naya Pakistan” based upon the eternal egalitarian principles our beloved Prophet employed fourteen centuries ago. But you become a victim of your own myth-making when you conveniently forget that the Medina of the Prophet of Islam was forged in the blood of the noble martyrs of Islam, directly fighting the onslaught of the powers of the time for ten long years in order to be able to implement those very principles! It was not a free lunch. Your selective story-telling is disingenuous. To create Medina in Pakistan, you cannot ignore the gods living in the Pakistani mind.
I don't make that mistake Mr. Prime Minister. And I won't judge you by your platitudinous words of “naya Pakistan”. As they say in the massa's language: the proof of the pudding is in its eating. When we take everything else from the massa, let's dare to take some of their own wisdom which affords them, under one pretext or another, the license to exercise Full Spectrum Primacy over us. The massa ubermensch race is united in their Anglo-Saxon burden of exercising global primacy through Full Spectrum Dominance.
So, what shall we, the untermensch races and nations, do in a world that is often referred to as the global village in which superpowers forge economic and military alliances among their own kind for controlling and harvesting the rest of us, by cunningly keeping us disunited even with our own neighbors?
In a nutshell, our antidote from their own book of wisdom should be: Self-defence through Full Spectrum Alliance.
Full spectrum alliances with all nations who share the same predicament as ours, beginning with our beleaguered immediate neighbors with whom we share a history, culture, civilization, and extending to nations with whom we share our geography, and beyond to all nations on earth across continents with whom we share the same predicament of being targets of primacy through what has euphemistically come to be known as international relations. This is nothing but the legalized imposition of predatory policies upon the world which aid and favor the developed nations of the world, particularly the Global North, and specifically, the United States of America. The primacy is not even thinly disguised. But slaves can only see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil. The free man is different, much different. So is a free nation. I am excited that for the first time in the history of our nation, supposedly a free man has come to power in Pakistan. A free nation will surely follow.
The seeds of this pragmatic political wisdom of uniting with other victims of the same hectoring hegemons politically, militarily, as trading partners, as economic partners, as currency partners, as resource sharing partners, etceteras, were planted in Part-4. I continue in this Part-5 examining why uniting in Full Spectrum Alliances is the only commonsense path to deter the quest for Full Spectrum Dominance. That path is so obvious as to be self-evident. And it not actually transpiring as the common shared national interest of the victim nations is only a divine mystery until one acquires the courage of one's convictions. The peoples of the United States once did. What are we waiting for?
The following is excerpted from my August 09, 2007 missive: The Missing Link To Full Spectrum Dominance – Full Spectrum Deterrence, and my May 15, 2008 Press Release: The Only Solution to Avoid Total War – Full Spectrum Alliances in ASIA.
Begin Excerpt
The plebeians of course well understand that they are being made a meal, and why, but not the complexities of how the tangled web of competing interests and deception games on the Grand Chessboard, and the systematic local covert-ops and co-optations in their own backyards, are gradually doing it to them such that even the right of self-defense is being stripped from them. Since they are unable to diagnose the mechanics of their being made a meal with any degree of precision, they are also unable to come up with efficacious antidotes in their own self-defense even as they are being deftly carved up and served on the platter of neoliberalism and neoconservatism. Most invariably end up fatalistically lamenting on this and that cleverly planted red herrings and contrived puppet shows in synchronous harmony with their drum-beating ruling elite, while also realizing fully well that all the dazzling and exploding effects eventually only lead to the same 'pre-ordained' destination of servitude.
As an investigative and independent free-lance journalist, I often talk to the ordinary 'taxi driver', i.e., common man, of the Global South, primarily in my native country.
Many of them easily observe what is manifest for all rational plebeian peoples to see even in the Global North (which the latter inexplicably don't seem to notice), that how the nations of the Global North are continually uniting among themselves into larger administrative, collaborative, and security entities, but the Global South is deliberately being made to divide in all sorts of ways even further. That 'divide and conquer' is at play on their shores is visible to all and sundry, and even when they may not be able to articulate it as elegantly as some erudite hectoring hegemons in the West who seek its vainglorious justification, as in "Hegemony is as old as mankind" [3], they surely recognize it trivially, being on its receiving end.
Even the 'uneducated' but surprisingly astute taxi driver in the developing nations of the Global South insightfully observes that even in their own minimal self-defence, China and Russia are unable to draw into a "full spectrum" alliance when each of these two burgeoning superpowers can clearly perceive that the Global North led by the sole superpower hectoring hegemon is out for "full spectrum dominance" [4]. And the taxi driver knows that both the intended victims on the Grand Chessboard can quite comprehend that the 'great game' is being replayed in Central Asia and the Middle East at the indigenous peoples' expense and that neither is being fooled by the 'global war on terror' mantra. Thus, the plebeian surmises, both must surely also be well aware that their anemic and guarded attempts at SCO collaboration that falls far short of the “full spectrum alliance” necessary to thwart the 'great game' of "full spectrum dominance" being wrecked upon all of "space, sea, land, air, and information" [5] by the top 'baboon' du jour, is merely a toothless and inefficacious show-dog sentry.
Any ordinary person in the street in the impoverished Global South - the general sympathies among whom for the enormous wealth and power controlled by the Global North historically always being in the negative, and now rapidly approaching its nadir with the rise of the new 'Mandarins' heralding in the elite-favored and elite-enabled 'New World Order' - knows that for instance, the pending American-Israeli invasion plan for the destruction of a defenseless Iran can be trivially thwarted by a full spectrum NATO-EU like security-and-trade alliance immediately emerging within the SCO, with India, Pakistan, and Iran being made full time mutual-defense-pact treaty members to safeguard the Asian Continent homeland from all external marauders. It is rather commonsensical to fathom that further extending such 'Treaties' and 'Unions' among similarly fated nations of South America and even Africa can create a relatively stable "full spectrum deterrence" all across the Global South.
This is the most obvious and immediate self-defense-and-trading-partners pact among the 'lowly', which despite the doctrine of naked preemptive aggression of nuclear first-strike preeminence claimed by the 'baboons' du jour, and which is also jingoistically projected to target Russia and China [6], no external economic sanctions and saber-rattling by the "hectoring hegemons" can subvert and co-opt without a full scale 'Armageddon' in which all manifestly lose! Even the realpolitik hegemons don't want 'Armageddon' – the tortuous notion is entirely for the feeble minded among them to keep them geopolitically motivated for 'imperial mobilization'!
As in any power-posturing and bluffing in uber-realist Chess and Poker on the Grand Chessboard, there are many standoffs and postures, alliances and treaties, that can lead to a credible and manageable 'MAD' like conclusive détente of equitable peace and relative security (as during the Cold War) even today.
And this can easily transpire despite the somewhat 'lowly' status of the Russian-Chinese economies and their perceived military under-preparedness compared to the Hectoring Hegemons'. The fantastic interdependence of the global economies and the fluidity of global finance alone can become primal guarantors of peace if the 'checkmating' moves are judiciously and collaboratively played! When a superpower's lifelines become global trade, world stock markets and offshore manufacture, and its national debt is held by others, it also becomes its Achilles heal.
Thus it is profound shortsightedness to only include military prowess, and GDP and domestic spending based econometric dominance in the calculus of détente. Economic and resource vulnerability under Globalization are just as essential pieces on the Grand Chessboard. While the 'Hectoring Hegemons' spearheading the Global North's hegemony over the Global South seem to realize this acutely as they form Unions and Alliances and put up global military bases across the 'Arc of Crises' (as of 2004 more than 700 [7]), to construct the global supermarket for a neo-liberal "fast [food] world" [8], the resource rich and yet criminally impoverished nations of the South do not seem to be able to capitalize on this god-sent serendipitous asset already sitting in their pathetically divided laps.
It is so incredibly bizarre that it should occur to the commonest of commoner taxi-driver to ask the obvious question "what right has god granted to the West to come pillaging in our lands and dictate to us how we should live or govern ourselves" when it doesn't seem to occur to his ruling elite in their policy planning calculus, and who continually seem to bow and scrape to just a single phone call from their Masters du jour. It is indeed heartening to hear the plebeians' unconstrained imagination soar with various self-defense scenarios to safeguard ones' independence and self-determination - but only after one has plied them with a hearty meal in dignified settings and got them to open up a window into their genuine plebeian thoughts - that is bar none. The common 'uneducated' man in his moralist and freedom-aspiring flights of fancy can easily give the best of Hollywood script writers a run for their money (who, it is rumored, often do create the 'reality' of war-game scenarios for the Pentagon that are not just limited to publicly viewable blockbusters like 'Dr. Strangelove').
Unfortunately, these lofty thoughts for freedom from injustices and hegemony in the quest for a more equitable distribution of the world's wealth with liberty afforded to all human beings to pursue the pleasures of life and happiness - yes even those in the Global South - are still only flights of fancy because morality presumably died with Prophet Moses, or perhaps it was stillborn. When was the last time that the glorious Ten Commandments was the basis of any nation's foreign policy? In fact, the only nation that any fair student of political science and political history can even point to in the accurately recorded annals of history as being based entirely upon the 'Law Givers' own moral teachings, is what the Prophet of Islam founded in Medina 1400 years ago and ruled the new nation-state of Islam for 10 years until his death.
Unfortunately, its universally acknowledged moral temper too died with the Prophet of Islam, the meritorious spread of Islam after the Prophet's demise and its global preeminence for 700 years notwithstanding. Lots of empires have flourished over the ages, morality being quite orthogonal to their emergence and dominance. Hence global preeminence and dominant civilization as an 'empire' is not a prima facie evidence of its morality and zenith of humanity in its relation to other 'lesser' nations anymore for Muslims' rise during the European 'Dark Ages', than it is of America's rise today as a global superpower during the Muslims' and the Global South's 'Dark Age'.
All rulers have generally ruled with the 'ubermensch' "might makes right" political philosophy with rare exceptions, and all struggles for freedom from their respective 'la mission civilisatrice' du jour have been waged only by peoples and nations of unflinching courage and determination who unequivocally refused to accept the suzerainty of any 'Hectoring Hegemons' upon them. Such is the amazing unforgettable history of mankind, right alongside the ruling elite's "hegemony is old as mankind".
One wonders then, that when such 'flights of fancy' scenarios for self-defense to acquire and retain full sovereignty and genuine independence - a never ending struggle as old as mankind - can occur even to the lowly 'taxi-driver' and is the documented history of the world, they must surely also occur to the burgeoning Asian powers, to the smaller surrounding nations, and certainly to the vastly more seasoned and sophisticated policy planners and strategic thinkers inhabiting their august corridors of power.
So then, the ordinary plebeian 'taxi-driver' – quite representative of the ordinary masses with street smarts – rightly ponders, why is such collectivist self-defense not occurring?
The astute plebeian is unfortunately not privy to the corridors of power and cannot comprehend the mechanics of how its own ruling elite is repeatedly coerced and co-opted into becoming so impotent that they are unable to enter into any sort of "full spectrum" deterrence alliance either among themselves, or with their immediate geographical neighbors with whom the beleaguered nations share borders and cultures, or in conjunction with the bigger minnows even if at a distance, no matter how corrupted and self-serving the ruling might be.
Shouldn't rational self-defense trump unbridled greed, he asks? Only the obvious moral truisms and commonsense is within his limited ken and purview, not the Machiavellian obfuscation and deceptions surrounding the mechanics of power-plays as he does not posses either the intellectual tools nor the time to unravel them.
So he can unbeguilingly only observe that even the murderous gangster Mafiosos are wont to make alliances to protect their territories from outside invaders! He can trivially only ask what has happened to courage, to self-respect, to self-determination, to chutzpah? Has it all been hogged by the defenseless Iran and Venezuela? And he can only emotionally lament that the ruling elite in the rest of Global South seems to be walking on its knees and entirely co-opted one way or another.
But he cannot comprehend what makes such acquiescence to hectoring hegemon happen when many clear paths of alliances and mutual cooperation are plainly visible to all and sundry despite the variegated fog of contrived enmities and competing geopolitical interests?
If a EU can transpire, and a NU is in the clandestine offing, what prevents an AU from transpiring? Surely when the house is on fire, all must unite to put out the fire before arguing about domestic matters?
Unless of course, he conjectures, the ruling elite have become the fifth columnist for empire and are indeed the arsonists in the fire brigade! Such is the profound intelligence as well as the ineptitude of the common man for he simply cannot fathom the mechanics of how such cowardly co-optation to the hectoring hegemons is continually brought to fruition.
What is 'Alice in Wonderland' dream state, what is Hollywood-like contrived reality, and what is the naked truth of the matter when 'Alice' is awake - the distinction is now so blurred between the insanity of "you are with us or with the terrorists" and the extremes of 'off with the head' and real "shock and awe" elocution of the 'Queen' to the synchronized singing of “United We Stand” at the absurd 'Unbirthday Party' of the 'Mad Hatter' - that the ordinary man in the street is unable to comprehend how such co-optation into giving up ones' own rational and commonsensical self-defense against the hegemons du jour is being deftly orchestrated through the complex wheeling-dealing of real world power-plays to which he is not privy.
Thus it appears to him, if he is among the one billion+ Muslims for instance who are presently bearing the full brunt of this fiction of 'war on terror', that the West is genuinely against Islam and is waging a real war against this lofty religion of a billion plus peoples to conquer Muslim lands. The goal is appreciated correctly, not the devious mechanism employed to achieve it. While he quite understands that this 'global war on terror' is fake, he fails to comprehend the real mechanics of how it is deliberately crafted with covert-ops and black-ops a plenty to actually provoke its natural auto-pilot sustainment into existence for a lifetime - because that is what the hectoring hegemons have publicly proclaimed it will take to achieve "full spectrum dominance" through a "World War IV".
And he therefore fails to perceive that 'militant Islam' is merely the well managed patsy du jour, that it is not a happenstance consequence due to 'blow-back' or the so called 'triumphalism' of 'Islam the religion' as the veritable neo-con and closet-Straussian Bernard Lewis would like the world to believe, but a deliberate pre-meditated contrivance ab-initio that originated in the Orwellian minds of the hectoring hegemons decades ago.
The latter are, after all, inimitable masters of psyops and sociological control with a profound understanding of "doctrinal motivations" and how to mobilize an unwilling largely ignorant Western public for conquest; as the hectoring hegemons believe (rightfully or not) that their well fed "democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization" and requires a constant and believable danger as the 'scare-crow' to motivate its 'populist democracy' into continually accepting shedding their young blood for the absurd doctrine of "preemptive self defense" in far off lands.
Thus in a nutshell, the plebeians of the world well know that 'uniting' is the key principle that is required for any self-defense, it is not that profound. What they don't understand is how and why it is not transpiring; what red herrings and covert-ops and co-optations and "techniques of infamy" are systematically disenabling them of natural unity that is normally borne of a shared plight, especially given the plethora of other natural conducive factors such as geographical proximity, cultural, and long-historical affiliations?

One must however, if one has the geopolitical acumen to understand the diabolical “forces that drive them”, not count on the efficacy of such dissent to avert any of the catastrophic scenarios, including a staged 'Gulf of Tonkin', or a staged nuclear terrorist act within the United States, or an Israeli attack on Iran, or an escalating Israeli war in Lebanon and Syria, all of which can lead to “'defensive' US military action against Iran [and Pakistan]”.
The Iranian and other Asian leaders would be wise to not underestimate the tortuous power of the 'Dark-Side' that is attempting to seed Total War in Asia using America as the 'hired hand'.
Rather than continually dismiss the tortuous aspirations for global domination as lunacy, or mis-guided, it would be prudent to treat them as devilishly real doctrines of conquest by a handful of the world's ruling elite partnering together in a twisted convolution of mutual interests – never to be underestimated for its destructive power upon the weak. Such an assessment, based on full spectrum comprehension of reality, permits the construction of the only effective self-defense by the weak. Why such a self-defense is not transpiring is a puzzle that defies explanation.
That deterrent solution-space, according to Project Humanbeingsfirst, is only in the forming of NATO-like Full Spectrum Alliances with an effective “Dr. Strangelove” type Samson Option that is publicly targeted at Israel and Western Europe as a declared self-defense nuclear doctrine, to construct the only viable and effective Deterrence: MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction)!
Only in the insanity of its “sublime irony”, wherein, in the immortal words of Winston Churchill, “safety [is] the sturdy child of terror and survival the twin brother of annihilation”, can there be any assured prospects of defeating the war-mongers before they hand the world a nuclear fait accompli.

Thank you for reading. I am offering you not just the recipe of commonsense, for all that I have stated above is nothing but commonsense, but also my free labor. You are surrounded by Westoxified mentally colonized slaves. If you seek advice from cowards, you shall become one. Cowardly nations can never be free. This isn't cricket dear Prime Minister. This is the practice of the Art of War in order to put our nation on the right path. It needs people of courage who can think outside the box; not enslaved minds whose first thought is to seek bailout from the IMF lamenting “we have no other choice”.
Beggars shall never be free when they continue to dream of American Aid. The recipients of this Trojan horse of modernity are forever forced into prostitution by the massa. If you will not understand that simple calculus, I have wasted my time. Yet, I continue to hope that we shall endeavor together as a nation to throw the tea overboard. I would like to experience “naya Pakistan” in my own lifetime.

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.
