“Globalization cannot be allowed to become the grand global casino where investors rig the system to guarantee that they always win.” UN human rights expert Alfred-Maurice de Zayas doesn’t mince his words when it comes to the new generation of trade deals like TTIP.CANNOT BE ALLOWED? WHAT IN THE HOLY FUCK? Globalization is exactly the rigged casino. That's the WHOLE FUCKING POINT. It wouldn't have happened at all if it didn't guarantee constant wins by the riggers. This is like saying "Dancing cannot be allowed to become a system where people move their bodies and arms and feet rhythmically for pleasure and sexual satisfaction." "Mathematics cannot be allowed to become a system where calculators rig the system to guarantee correct answers." A UN "human" "rights" expert is the ultimate insider. He knows GOOD AND GODDAMN WELL what globalization is. We know he's lying. Now if we heard an outsider like a taxi driver or a waitress saying the above sentence, maybe we could assum............ NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. I'm wrong. We could NOT assume the taxi driver or waitress was unaware of the sole purpose of globalization. The taxi driver watched his Dad die of alcohol after losing his excellent steel-mill job to Tata Steel. The waitress is waitressing because her boyfriend lost his excellent programming job to Tata Teleservices. Both of them know globalization in their long-suffering BONES. Well then. Insiders know globalization because they're running it and infinitely profiting from it. Outsiders know globalization because we're dying from it. Who does that leave? Maybe some insulated academic economists and journalists? People who never encounter the actual victims? People who profit from carrying the lethal lies of "human" "rights" monsters, and thus have a bias toward believing?

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
