[KR893] Keiser Report: Despair Fatigue

We ask not what corporations can do for you, they, instead, ask what you can do for your corporations. We look at how multinationals and giant corporations like Pfizer and AT&T ‘lobby’ politicians to increase costs to consumers and restrict competition. In the second half, Max and Stacy continue their talk with anthropologist and LSE professor, David Graeber, about his latest article, Despair Fatigue.

    re summary executions by Israel
    Various people have said this is not what Israel stands for.
    The evidence would suggest otherwise. In the video I watched, not one person seemed perturbed. Looked to be a very normal situation. The only person to suffer post execution, will be the honest brave man with the video camera.
    That is what Israel stands for.

    “The architects of the Yinon plan need only have read Syria’s long history of resistance against colonial divisions to know their plans in Syria were doomed to failure.”


    You getting this? Sorry to be relentless but I don’t think I’ll ever forget your partitioning-Syria sophistry. A real shocker for this poster at any rate.

    Best cure for Israel is to move from a Jewish Supremacist state to a multi-cultural, secular state with equal rights for Arabs, Jews, Christians and whatever. Then recognize the RIGHT OF RETURN just so we see the look on Barbara Spectre’s face…

    The first thing to go will be the success of manipulations like the 12:00 PM EST “cap of last resort” – which strangely, has “morphed” closer to 11:30 AM EST in the past year or so, after a decade of showing up at the “same Bat-time, same Bat-channel.”


    …as opposed to tried-and-true “2:15 AM” raids – as we’ve seen on 612 of the past 702 trading days; Precious Metal “flash crashes” in the wee hours of the night; and to the contrary, the “dead ringer” algorithm on the “Dow Jones Propaganda Average” I first wrote of four years ago – which shows up roughly three-quarters of all trading days, including eight of the last nine. Let alone, the “DLITR,” or “don’t let it turn red” algorithm – which you can see below, was used eight times yesterday alone…

    India’s finance minister can’t persuade his own wife to paperize her gold jewellery

    Gold monetisation scheme bows to family homilies
    Mar 29, 2016

    There is a conflict between two finance ministers, and it seems the ‘official’ one is not winning this war.

    The country’s finance minister announced a scheme to monetise the gold holdings of India’s families, but the finance minister back at home, the housewife, is having none of it. This came through clearly at a recent meeting between economic affairs secretary Shaktikanta Das and representatives from the Reserve Bank of India, temple trusts and other bodies, to discuss ways to make the scheme more attractive.

    “I am not even able to convince my wife to part with her jewellery, which she hardly uses,” one official reportedly said at the meeting, raising laughter. “It’s easy to convince North Block but very difficult to convince finance minister at home to participate in this scheme.”

    The brainf**kers brainf**ker, Edward Bernays…

    “”The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of . . . Whatever attitude one chooses toward this condition, it remains a fact that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by a relatively small number of persons – a trifling fraction of our hundred and twenty million – who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world.””


    Hmmmm, sounds like a Zionist to me? Tbh, you could embolden the entire quote but I wanted to highlight the creative destruction aspect.

    The comment on democracy is hilarious. Did he write that with a straight-face or a hint of irony? Does he know something we don’t? ;)

    I’ve come full circle :D Time to take a long break (hopefully longer than my usual nano-second breaks).

    Good grief, UE was right…what a load of bollocks.

    Of course, everyone’s seen this already.
    Of course it’s in bad taste. Horrendous. Crude. And more. But it’s still several notches above running for blocks on end because of some whispered rumor and a shout or two. If it’s inevitable, flip a bird and take a selfie. Event if everyone complains it isn’t one.

  25. Useless Eater says:

    Part of my curse is that I rarely get to share moments with those I intimidate and chastise. I am almost always long gone when it finally hits them like a ton of bricks.

    Like now, for example, I am thoroughly enjoying being ignored on another site. Completely and utterly.

    Useless. That is my name.
