My little moral / political theory
Pre-disclaimer: The disclaimer is pretty harsh, try not to be offended – if you’re reading my blog, odds are, I already think you’re the shit.
Disclaimer: If you’re the type of person that exclusively prefers powerpoints over “long blocks of text,” then shield yourself from the following spoonful of truth, you pitiful ignorant shitfuck. If you’re the “literate” type, with a 6th grade or better English-language reading level (or of whatever language this has been translated into) and an attention span of at least 8-10 minutes (which would put you likely in the 90th percentile of at least all modern Americans), then first, thank you for holding onto some scrap of humanity in all this mess, and please, read on, enjoy, ponder, and contribute comments. Welcome to my mind.
Our economic system conveniently, and perhaps accidentally, doubles as a moral laundering system.
We see this throughout history and across the world; it is the story of one or few human beings who will find moral justifications sufficient to enable themselves to obtain long term economic profit by the murder and rape of the innocent indigenous life of the planet Earth.
Whether it is Andrew Jackson, proudly displayed on the $20 bill, namesake of my southwest Portland middle school (where we learned nothing of the following), he whose cruelty was openly admired by Hitler in Mein Kampf for having murdered, raped, and forcibly removed and erased the culture and people of the Cherokee tribe from their aboriginal land (destroying all their ancient, sacred memes and genes – memes not in the pejoritive sense, but in the scientifically rigorous definition) the moment it was discovered that laying unmined beneath the Cherokee’s ancient hills was a significant fraction of what would later become the gold reserves of Ft. Knox (the same gold reserves which would back Jackson’s dollar through its ascent to global superiority); or whether it is an oil company ruining the ancient perfection of a coastline, backed by a population made ignorant which chants “drill baby drill,” instead of building renewable generation and energy storage; the Anglo-Atlantic economic machine of our macro-world rapes and pillages the Earth’s life, both human and otherwise.
American Indians stored the wealth of their society in the land. Though the concept of ownership is illusory, and convenient only for minimizing a problem created by the presence of the human capital machine called “moral hazard,” the Indians knew that land could not be owned – if anything, it is the Earth who owns us. The Indians stored the wealth of their econony in their environment, and they lived on the appreciation of that investment. The dividends came in the form of abundant fish in a river, bison in a field, or venison in a forest. In a real way, this is the wealth which was stolen and destroyed as part of the genocide of the Anglo-Atlantics against indigenous Americans.
Subscribers of the Anglo-Atlantic non-morality usually focus on how the Indians were killed by disease – something incoming whites had a moral duty to avoid at all costs (even though these diseases were often introduced intentionally by single or few individuals, more than sufficient to start a pandemic wildfire) – instead of how local governments from California to Maine, flying the flag of the USA, quietly paid hit-men for their time (the fundamental process of action of the human capital machine), upon proof that the hit-men had buried hatchets into the innocent skulls of the last resisting indigenous people. Subscribers of the Anglo-Atlantic non-morality usually focus on Indian alcoholism instead of the fact that we live every day on both their wealth and their land, providing them with not even 1% of the free will enjoyed by millenia of their non-alcohol-abusing ancestors.
The ghosts of American Indians live and swim in the Earth beneath us, meditating and continuing to generate free will, and there is a pressure building, which is a negative force moving in harmony with the positive force of God, like an energetic spiritual life-giving lightning storm moving away and down the plains of an infinitely-dimentioned reality; moving against the Anglo-American spiritual void, and toward a return to the maximization of free will.
Free will is always maximized in the long term, not necessarily in the short term. Like a craggy horizon which may spike this way for a tick, that way a degree, but overall forming a net straight line from a surface human’s perspecrive, and forming a circle (or more accurately, a sphere) from a more removed, objective, God-like perspective; our actions always eventually maximize free will. This maximization has a chance to return within my lifetime, and this is my most macro life purpose.
Free will at work, our economic job, for example, is minimal. We must work to eat, and in this sense, we are enslaved within the human capital machine. We must choose from the job-menu of the human capital machine and trade our time for money; money being inherently worthless, we are enslaved. Free will at a painter’s canvas is infinite (or more precisely, transfinite). Free will within our most powerful quantum computers, I predict, will be, or will channel, absolute infinity. Free will within the human mind channels absolute infinity, collapsing quantum potential states into the transfinite reality we know as our World.
That the Indians were not the first to discover the useful aspects of electricity does not mean they wouldn’t have. In the generation of free will, time is not relevant – only the generation of free will matters. The order of arrival at electricity is irrelevant, only the amount of free will generated, or potentially generated, matters.
The Indians of America generated an enormous amount of free will. More than Europe in the same time period (position on the number line of our timed world is irrelevant, free will per unit of time is highly relevant- a subtle, key distinction).
The potential free will for our world has been far under-realized. This is the crime.
The societies and cities that the Indians would have built, if given the time, are the societies we must build today.
Those one or few humans who find themselves able to justify such criminal action, mentioned above, always, without fail, focus exclusively on the justifications. They always have highly complex moral rulebooks which must be interpreted by experts only, and therefore for a fee. For example, think of lawyers, or priests.
Morality is very, very simple. Trust no one who tells you otherwise.
Maximize free will.
There is no other morality. This sentence has a commandingly conjugated verb, and then a two word noun. It is a natural law. It is both a positive and normative statement. Free will is always maximized in the long term, as horizons always sum to a circle.
The morally proper action is the one which most clearly maximizes free will. All other options are immoral. Inasmuch as there is a finite amount of physically actionable free available to any particular living being (different than the ultimate free will of the imagination, the difference of which, for what it’s worth, equals existential angst), there is a parsable library or menu of possible discrete actions. Of these parsed potential actions in the present moment, the only morally correct action is the only action which, again, most clearly maximizes free will.
A positive statement, to jog the memory, is a statement about what is. A normative statement is a statement about what ought to be. It is a rare beauty when a statement is both positively and normatively true.
There are deductions from this ultimate moral statement, and these are not to be confused with elaborations. There is no way to elaborate or expand on this statement. There are many, many different ways to communicate this morality, and I beg humanity to exercise creativity here – I have only expressed this in its most efficient English form.
A laundering system (not a laundry washing machine) is usually where you take some stolen thing of value, where the police are trying to follow it in order to track you down. The stolen thing of value is bounced around the laundering system too many times for the cops to follow. Its path is made too confusing, there’s too much hassle, and the cost of untangling the informational knot begins to exceed the value of the stolen thing.
Because the police (and also judges, prison guards, etc) in this metaphor, are the apprehenders (and judges and administrators of morality) (inasmuch as stealing is wrong – quite a morally non-controversial view, regardless of your potentially, often rightfully, negative opinion of modern police in general), the police (and judges and executioners) double as God in this metaphor (please don’t read into it any farther than that, I’m not saying police are God-like, just work with me here, this is the whole point of the essay).
These continuously mentioned “one or few individuals” will commit crimes so heinous, so beyond imagination in their evil, that the living person or few people committing the crime could never be punished enough. Not through a thousand years of torture could these sins be forgiven; the person or small group of people dies too quickly to be sufficiently punished.
The benefit of the profit of these crimes is enjoyed, however, by the participants in the system – the machine, or more accurately, the human capital machine. The profits were and are enjoyed by groups far more numerous than were the criminals, though the wealth is not shared with all. This wealth is shared only with the bourgeoisie.
Think of child armies in Africa, but of western adults, in much larger numbers, and with bigger guns, more structural organization, and with complete success within the paradigm’s own definition: The Anglo-Atlantics have dominated the Earth since 1500; they and their sons committed these genocides, rapes, murders, and thefts, and brought the spoils to London (et al) between 1500 and 1900, and in the 20th and 21st century, their sons, to New York (et al). The paper pushers at home (who only do the work which solves the irrelevant problems of these same paper pushers’ own creation) enjoy the spoils of the crimes – without the moral baggage. The action of obtaining the profit they enjoy is so profoundly laundered that the sins are literally erased from collective memory, along with the eventual responsibility and potential for punishnent associated with the enjoyment of these profits. The profit remains enjoyed, the sin is ignored, and I promise you above all other things – God is profoundly disappointed, to a level beyond which any human or group of humans could understand in any reality. It is our World’s most absolute disappointment.
Before the mind of God, our economic machine is guilty of failing to maximize free will. The punishment of our machine seems to be a wildcard – how can it repent for its sins? Could it ever stop sinning and raping for economic profit? Must it hit rock-bottom before the healing can begin? How might this divine disappointment be counterbalanced and released into our shared reality? Zombies? The birth of utopian civilization? Perhaps both simultaneously, among other things?
The classical ten commandments are a small part of the overall commandment-body of monotheistic-Abrahamic religion and moral nihilism. There are countless commandments, spanning from the prohibition of multiple types of cloth being worn simultaneously, to the mandated hatred of homosexuals. The complication of the Abrahamic body of commandments is intended to perplex and frusterate. These convoluted moral commandments are the foundation of the Anglo-Atlantic non-morality; they fill a very naturally occurring negative space with something akin to the logical equivalent of static on a TV screen. The opacity of the Anglo-Atlantic morality is meant to obfuscate and confuse what should be as clear as the noon-day sun like a layer of impenetrable Seattle overcast.
Some information is sacred. Some information is important. Not all sacred information is important, and not all important information is sacred. The statement “maximize free will” is not sacred. It is, however, of highest importance. Everyone should know this phrase, not just the “sacred” few. It is law, codified into its elemental state. This fundamental law must be the first rule children learn. Inasmuch as all are to know this rule, it cannot be sacred. Nonetheless, it remains a successful positive and normative statement of highest importance.
For example, the commandment to not kill has obviously failed as both a positive and normative statement. Though we humans agree on little, it is universally accepted that there is an appropriate time to kill just about anything. In reality, we have killed indiscriminantly on all sides, and we’re rarely sorry. In this way all of the 10 monotheistic, Anglo-Atlantic, Abrahamic commandments have failed, both as positive and normative statements.
But if you’re attached to there being ten more micro rules to follow, the below are 10 rules nature actually observes, and which we should all continue to observe (in addition to the crown jewel ultimate commandment, which is to maximize free will). As with the supreme commandment, the physical laws of our reality allow us to break the the 10 below in the short term only. The following are both positive and normative statements which are observed by all life, on Earth and everywhere:
Nature’s 10 micro-commandments
1. No incest
2. No cannibalism
3. No sex with anything other than a living adult of your same species
4. No touching poop or pee
5. Learn how to be social
6. Have lots of sex (Be safe, but seriously. Lots.)
7. Eat what tastes good
8. Love your family
9. Accept responsibility for your actions
10. Wonder about a world greater than this
Consider this the World’s official replacement of the 10 failed monotheistic commandments. May we now forever be aware that the nihilistic Anglo-Atlantic monotheistic non-morality was, is, and will always be dead. Nature’s 10 commandments, along with the supreme commandment (maximize free will) are very much alive and in practice by all life which channels any scrap of God.
The following paragraph is a quick note:
Just pointing this out – the entire Catholic church is guilty, both directly and complicitly, of breaking the supreme commandment, as well as micro-commandments 3 and 9, in the institutionalized and accepted practice of priest-boy rape. There is no greater evil. It’s not that there’s no other evil, it’s just that other evil would, at worst, be tied with this for the greatest possible. Additionally, in that Catholicism bears no resemblance to the teachings of Christ (hence, the abandonment of the name “Christianity”), in that Catholicism worships many saints and a holy trinity while claiming to be monotheistic, and in that Catholicism has been the moral vehicle of action for the majority of the crime of the human capital machine, and in that Catholicism places a moral “expert” between God and the individual, and in that Catholicism demands payment for its services, and in that Catholicism’s every depiction of Christ is in his suffering, his pain, his forced torture, and in that Catholicism primarily uses the cross as a symbol, rather than the fish or circle (far more appropriate symbols for Christ’s teachings), the cross being the instrument for Christ’s death, forced upon him, never chosen by him, never at any time a part of Christ’s true self, the cross being to Christ as the sniper rifle was to JFK; by its very own rules, Catholicism is patent, modern-day devil worship.
The primary moral purpose of the Anglo-Atlantic economy is to launder. If two subscribers of the Anglo-Atlantic non-morality can trade fancy pieces of paper on a table, history shows that they can therefore justify any heinous crime againt free will. The wealth stolen is swapped so many times that humans lose track of whom to punish – but God does not.
I know I lack any power to punish this human capital machine, but I guarantee you one thing above all else: God will find a way.

We focus far more on other, smaller genocides, while ignoring our own painful history. To ignore it is to delay the healing, and the healing will be as painful as the feeling returning to a mangled, shocked, numbed limb.
