Is Moronity a place, or a condition? Since America is our focus, and since America seems a fine example of something at once both place and condition, let’s consider Moronity to be both.
A prime indicator that we’ve reached Moronity is how we regard evidence. Take 9/11 for example, WTC 7 in particular. When the essentially undamaged massive steel building collapsed into its own footprint at nearly free fall speed, that was irrefutable evidence of controlled demolition. Such precision demolition takes a lot of preparation; days or even weeks of placing charges, and wiring them in perfect sequence. So the evidence clearly shows that WTC 7 was rigged for demolition well in advance of 9/11, which means that 9/11 was no surprise.
That simple bit of the obvious is enough to destroy any credibility of the official story of the “surprise terrorist attack”. But there’s so much more. Clear evidence of 9/11 being false flag terror, an “inside job”—it glares from virtually everything that happened, everything related both on 9/11, before 9/11, and after 9/11. However, it seems that about half of Americans still believe the abjectly anti-evidence official story. When you disregard evidence in favor of what you are told by authority, especially if what you are told is what you would really rather believe…sounds like Moronity.
Black Friday in Moronity, 11/28/08. Stampeding pre-dawn shoppers break down a Wal-Mart door and trample an employee to death, then become irate over requests that they suspend their shopping. At a Toys”R”Us, two men shoot and kill each other over a scuffle between two women at checkout….
Moral decay is another sign of Moronity, as in crimes we commit against people of other nations. Obama has us holding a bag marked Hope, and a bag marked Change. We can only hope that what we have done to Iraqis represent the bottom in our moral descent. Wanton murder of 1.3 million people, mangling of the survivors’ genetic future with depleted uranium projectiles—weapons that keep killing effectively forever (radioactive half-life of 4.5 billion years). Assassination of their academics. 4 million Iraqi refugees. Satanic infrastructure destruction…we have laid a blanket of hell over the very cradle of civilization, fundamentally, to control Iraqi oil. Of course Moronity’s leaders marched out the prettiest, most tender and phony euphemisms to justify our smothering of Iraq with hell—stultifying balm to soften shards of morality. Remember the soothing likes of, “We are bringing freedom and democracy to the good people of Iraq?” So a somewhat grim acceptance of our moral coma prevails. The masses just don’t want to think about what has really been done in Moronity’s name—in our name. Let’s hope a return to decency, reawakening of our moral conscience, is in that bag marked Change….
What kind of government do we have? “Democracy, of course—” at least a majority of Moronity’s citizens would likely tell you that. “We are a democratic nation striving to bring freedom and democracy to other nations as well, amen.”
Actually, in the interests of avoiding “mob rule” of democracy—to safeguard the rights of individuals and minorities from being trampled by the herd, representative democracy was chosen. We were a democratic republic. But now, Moronity’s form of government could more realistically be described as a Chimera with kleptocracy on its breath.
Mythologically, a Chimera is a monstrous creature composed of parts of several kinds of animal. The earliest surviving literary reference is in Homer’s Iliad: “…a thing of immortal make, not human, lion-fronted and snake behind, a goat in the middle, and snorting out the breath of the terrible flame of the bright fire.” Rather a shock-and-awe dynamic, that breath of flame….
Democracy is a distant, largely irrelevant popular ideal hardly worth mentioning here among oligarchy, plutocracy and kleptocracy all wrapped up in a fog of financial pathocracy. Basic definitions:
Oligarchy — From the Grecian words for “few” and “rule”…in this form of government, ultimate power is wielded by an elite morsel of society distinguished by wealth, royalty, family…generally, power by privileged group.
Plutocracy — More smeared than Oligarchy, simplified into rule by the wealthy.
Kleptocracy — Government that enhances the wealth and power of government officials, and the ruling class, at the expense of the population.
Pathocracy — A system of government created by a small pathological minority that takes control over a society of normal people (or in the New World Order, over a whole world).
Familiar ringing there, decent soundtrack for our acceleration toward fascist police-state tyranny. Meanwhile, our overriding affliction of financial pathocracy is looking more malignant by the bailout.
“Never smarten up a chump, and never give a sucker an even break.” That quote from W. C. Fields could pass for a motto of our financial pathocracy. And the financial pathocrats know that the best place to hide something is in plain view. How plain? Go to your wallet, pull out some money. Top center on its front—the first thing it says to you: Federal Reserve Note
What is the Federal Reserve? Indicatively, it is not federal, that’s a ruse to make it sound solidly like a part of the government. Reserves? There are no reserves, that’s also a ruse to make it sound, shall we say, safely reinforced. In simplest terms, “the Fed” is unconstitutional. The Fed is a foremost enemy of the people—vital organ of Moronity, master of our federal Chimera. The Fed is merely one head of the Rothschild Hydra (in Greek mythology, Hydra is a many-headed serpent or monster, each head of which, when cut off, is replaced by two others).
Our Road to Moronity was surveyed, graded, bedded and paved by the Fed. And we have been meticulously herded toward Moronity—a certain rest stop on the journey toward the New World Order. In his memoirs, David Rockefeller wrote:
“But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The super-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
That gets us to a very enduring barometer of Moronity: What the people allow to be done to them. The latest trillion-dollars-and-counting gored from the people to rescue financial pathocrats from built-in snags in their reptilian machinations…surely you’ve thought about how much common good could be done with this additional debt on your shoulders. Instead, it’s simply a fly turd on the map of pathocracy compared to the almost 100-year spinal tap by the Federal Reserve.
Back to what the Federal Reserve is. Incredibly, it’s not even ours. The Fed is a cartel of twelve private banks (actually, they’re not really even banks) which are not a part of our government. All of the primary owners are tentacles of European financial monstrosities who, in addition to owning the Fed, also own corporate media, the industrial military complex, virtually all of our political machinery. And they own our money. How in Beelzebub’s name did twelve essentially foreign private bank hybrids gain total control of our money supply, creating dollars out of thin air, then loaning them to us, at interest?
In 1913 the Rothschilds of England and Germany bought the presidency for Woodrow Wilson—on the condition that he finagle to life The Federal Reserve Act. Reminiscing on his success, Wilson lamented later that: “I have unwittingly ruined my country.”
Starting with WWI a year later, owners of the Fed have instigated all major wars. Regarding depressions, current Fed chief Ben Bernanke had this to say in 2002 at an event in honor of Milton Friedman’s 90th birthday:
“Let me end my talk by abusing slightly my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You’re right, we did it. We’re very sorry. But thanks to you, we won’t do it again.”
Hey, Ben, what about the wars? You know, supporting and arming both sides and making a killing from all of the killing….

Money, Banking and the Federal Reserve
Two men of great relevance here are Henry Ford, and Congressman Ron Paul.
Henry Ford once said “It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning”. (reference)
Congressman Paul, on June 15, 2007, sponsored H.R. 2755 , the Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act.
Besides their opposition to the Fed, Ford and Paul are united across history in their support of hemp. Ford was a great advocate of American farms. He poured resources into creating new markets for farm products while industrialists took the opposite approach, pushing a petroleum future for America. Many bills in congress supporting a National Energy Program focused on the country’s vast agricultural resources as a source of motor fuel were attacked and killed by young Big Oil. Ford had firm belief in ethyl alcohol as the fuel of the future, something widely shared in the early automotive industry. Any plant matter that can be fermented is a source of fuel; in this regard—and many others—Ford knew that if widely cultivated, hemp, among the world’s fastest-growing annuals, would be a fantastic economic boon. He even made a car that had a body and windows of hemp plastics, and was powered by hemp.
Congressman Paul also sponsored H.R.1009, The Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2007, which since April 20, 2007 has lay waiting for the embalmer’s needle in the House subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security. Only in Moronity would a bill on hemp farming die in a subcommittee on crime, terrorism and homeland security.
So, we have the Fed giving us perpetual wars, perpetual debt, and depressions, while the most useful crop on the planet is banned in favor of pollution, deforestation, and a monopolistic petroleum and synthetics empire funneling wealth to the wealthy while destroying the biosphere.
Two giant steps away from Moronity would be to abolish the Fed and control our own real money, and to restore the American Hemp Industry.
Otherwise, we keep accelerating toward New World Order, where an ever smaller handful of financial elite own virtually everything and are the lords to which the rest of humanity serves in a kind of modern feudalism. The ultimate pathocracy, where reptiles obsessed with accumulating more and more and more wealth and power and control…are in control. Reptiles devoid of the best of the humane…love, compassion, conscience, moral creativity. No concern for the human condition. No positive sense of the human potential.
Food, fuel, paper, fiber, plastics…hemp married to modern technology could give us over 20,000 products friendly to the biosphere—exactly the opposite of our petrochemical synthetics nightmare. The two primary long-term products of the petrochemical empire are death, and control by financial pathocracy. The immense public value in hemp has been well reflected in the maniacal efforts of hemp suppression by the pathocracy.
Our own farmers could grow the ultimate raw material for a renaissance of Americans producing products they consume while the profits are generously spread among the people. Americans creating wealth and benefitting most from their creation. A new road leading straight away from Moronity, back toward that ultimate ideal for peace and prosperity, commonwealth.
