Lorenzo Canizares: chameleons in human form
- Rulers of the USA are chameleons in human form
May 1, 2003
Our society is full of chameleons in human form. These
chameleons, characteristically, have no shame. The
invasion of Iraq, placing the lives of poor and middle
class young men and women in harm's way, was done
hurriedly in the name of finding weapons of mass
destruction. Now that most recognize what we already
knew - that there are no weapons of mass destruction,
our chameleons are changing their tune that the reason
of invading Iraq was always to liberate the Iraqi
people of Saddam's oppression.
Now, our chameleons are trying to grapple with an
answer to why are the Iraqi people demonstrating (and
paying with their lives) for us to leave. The
chameleons might soon be saying that Syria and Iran
are responsible for this discontent. Anyway, this
greases the possibility for in the summer of 2004 to
invade another country in order to maintain the
necessary frenzy to keep the hard-core right-wing
Republicans in control of the nation.
Through all of this, it is hard to believe in the
existence of honest chameleons. So there is no other
choice but to believe these people are part of a
concerted effort by the most extreme right-wing forces
of the Republican party to excuse the invasion of Iraq
for any other means than the real one - control of
Iraq's oil reserves and huge contracts for the
rebuilding of Iraq - all paid by American taxpayers.
In the meantime, while we are trying to reshuffle the
world scene to the convenience of our corporate
magnates, in the home front the reshuffling of the
economic infrastructure continues at a frantic pace.
Corporate corruption continues unebbed, states lose
federal aid and millions of low-income Americans face
loss of health insurance plus sharp cuts in benefits -
like prescription drugs and dental care, the middle
class face continuous loss employment, higher insurance
premiums (see medical revolt), and continues rise in
college education. Corporate America has taken over
and do not plan to give up.
How can this be happening? I believe because a
combination of greed and racism. Greed that have made
its bearers lose all perspective of what is proper for
a society to work properly. e.g., In the early 1980's
the CEO's average rate of pay was an average 10 to 1
to a regular workers salary. Today is 700 to 1.
Racism is part of the equation in order to provide a
rationale for doing what they are doing. The human
psyche cannot perform for too long knowing that they
are doing the wrong thing. So they have to come up
with excuses to justify doing the wrong thing. Slavery
to be accepted by its perpetrators was linked to the
theory of white-skin supremacy and its counterpart the
theory of the inferiority of colored people. Since
these theories have been totally debunked a new vision
is needed to excuse social abuse.
So the new theory is really an undercurrent. Being
their main exponent the chameleons of "hate radio."
They say that the very-wealthy has "worked" very hard
for what they have and are deserving of their
privileges. That they have a right to "milk" the
system for their benefit. If those out of the
inner-circle lose what the state should provide -
tough. They should know their place. To make it easier
to digest this "vision" the undercurrent talks as if
the people affected are just colored and immigrants.
The simple thinking goes - why are we going to be
caring of these people when we don't even want to have
anything to do with them. But we know that the reality
is different. The majority of people being affected by
these policies are White-Americans. Most veterans
that are losing benefits are White-Americans, most
elderly receiving cuts in their Medicare benefits are
White-Americans, most Americans being affected with
cuts in unemployment and welfare benefits are
White-Americans, most stock-holders that have been
victimized by corporate corruption are White-Americans.
But hopefully soon most middle class and poor
Americans are going to decipher the hoax and its
chameleons, and we might be able to take the country
back through its electoral process. But don't bet on it.
2000 was no coincidence - it was a well designed
thievery. An effort to last.
