Welcome to the "New" Republic of Neo-America
By Vincent L. Guarisco
Have you conformed yet? Have you learned how to accept everything at face
value the mainstream media tells you? No? Well, haven't you heard -- it's
the popular, patriotic thing to do. Welcome to the new gilded age of
neo-America where independent thought and informational truthfulness is no
longer considered a valuable quality or asset. In fact, just the opposite --
it's now deemed a threat by those who stole the throne of power.
Ding, ding, ding, recess is over, the iron school bell is tolling for your
required attendance. Just like those little tykes who congregate for their
daily lessons at kindergarten romper rooms, we adults collectively assemble
in front of our televisions, radios and newsstands to receive "our" daily
dose of candy-coated conformity. And, just like those small susceptible
children who are taught to accept the rules of the establishment at a young
and tender age, we adults are also back in school receiving our lessons as
well, just like the little kiddies.
Welcome to today's neo-media behavioral modification program, a new
comprehensive non-stop shrill that promises to transform our once cherished
normal living conditions into this groovy new psychedelic neo life
on't worry about enrolling---the powers that be have already signed-you-up
as a charter member four years ago! All you have to do is just continue
"tuning in" for your 24/7 mind-bending press-corps correspondence course
that's guaranteed to tweak your lobes on a daily basis. Be it morning, noon
or night -- you are the pupil who gets to bear witness to non-stop
unscrupulous political witch-hunting expeditions, neo-methodical fake
polling publications, pre-planned institutional conformity tactics, and
other covert subliminal trickery that promises to diminish your ability to
produce free will and independent thought to form an accurate opinion or
assumption of what the hell is going on around you.
Bottom line -- we are all being trained/told what to think, say and do for
the betterment of the new "Neo-Republic."
Class started after the 2000 US Supreme Court appointed selection, and
accelerated after the September 11 attacks, compliments of the Project for a
New American Century (PNAC) boys, who blueprinted this adventure years ago.
Remember the motto: "we are fighting a new kind of war" -- a new kind of
endless war. We have entered a new era that abandons our antiquated and
useless beliefs of constitution, freedom of speech, civil and human rights.
Reaching for the old ways is now considered "liberal quibbling," ramblings
of trouble-making doves unwilling to sacrifice in the name of patriotism.
The new mantra for the Neo-Republic is quite clear, all you have to do is --
smile, shut up, pray, work, consume, pay taxes, don't ask questions and
enlist at the nearest recruiting office. And after doing so -- instruct your
loved ones to report to the nearest Pro-War Rally to join in the festivities
of waving goodbye as you head into combat.
Take notice---non-compliance will result in a zero tolerance approach; you
will be segregated and red tagged as a "radical liberal terrorist," labeled
a "threat," and subjected to severe disciplinary measures. No cap and gown
or diploma given for those enrolled at Guantonimo Bay school of hard knocks.
Don't take my word for it. Ask big brother Attorney Gatekeeper Ashcroft.
He'll set you straight with a few options -- torture, prison, deportation or
death. Or, if you're smart, you can choose to accept the new Republican
order and receive your complimentary (neo-revised) Bible with a pat on the
butt for luck as you are sent on your merry "born again" way.
So put on that happy face and always remember to keep that newspaper in
front of your smiley mug with that radio and TV on -- it's all quite
subliminally soothing, trust me.
Don't fret about the upcoming 2004 selection. Do not concern yourself with
upsetting scuttlebutt about electronic voting machines or stupid recounts.
Don't worry, be happy. It will all "pass over" very quickly, I promise. All
you need to do is -- shut up, pray, work, consume, pay taxes, enlist, don't
ask questions and smile. It's that simple!
Don't worry about the future, don't look back, uncle Sammy will do all the
glancing back and future planning for you, life is so very easy---sleep,
pray, work, consume, enlist, don't ask questions, shut up, smile and wave
your approval to the peacekeepers as they march off to war.
Remember -- war is necessary in order to maintain peace, that's why we call
Rest assured, this is required for your protection, so pay little or no
attention to the minor omissions that are quietly being made to the US
Constitution in order to keep you safe and secure in your homey little
cribs: choice, privacy, equality, the Bill of Rights, debates,
accountability, democracy as a whole are old, dangerous ways that must be
eliminated because the terrorists are extremely jealous of all our freedoms.
Don't forget that's why they attacked us on 9-11.
Remember -- complete servitude is for our own safety and protection. It's
for the better good of the New Neo-Republic and, as a result, the terrorists
will not be angry with us or envious of us for what we have. See how logical
this is? They no longer hate us for our wealth and freedoms! You and your
family are now safe to continue: sleeping, praying, war dancing, working,
enlisting, consuming, not asking questions.
Best of all, we won't be on any of Uncle Sam's lists. He'll give all of us
a great big hug for shutting up and for supplying him with both funds and
labor that will enable him to build his glorious weapons of mass
destruction, and for maintaining delirious smiles at home and abroad in
combat peacekeeper zones! Now carry on. Enjoy the war in the name of
independent thought...sleep...don't ask questions...sleep...((((Ding, ding, ding, ding)))) Wake the hell up sleepyheads! Look around
and see that everything Americans hold dear is all slipping away under the
Bush regime quietly and quickly and -- if we could keep them open long
enough -- before our very eyes! Wake up and realize that neo-conformity is
NOT an option for a democratic society that is meant to be free!
Get busy and start screaming out your windows until your throat is bloody!
Start marching in the streets! Demand your constitutional right to live free
while you still can! Demand peace without war! Demand accountability for
those who have lied to us and sold us like slaves at a corporate auction to
the highest bidder!
We must fight for what is ours or be prepared to lose everything that was
hard earned through 228 years of American struggle. There is such a thing
as the American Dream. We must not let it become an American Nightmare. In
one loud voice we must declare that we will not go quietly in the night at
the hands of a few wealthy powerbrokers.
Resist the tyranny at home, do not fight their bogus wars---think, ask
questions, demand honest answers! Demand freedom, demand peace, demand
equality, demand accountability, demand honesty. The real battle is right
here at home against our own oppressors -- not in distant lands! Our
government is supposed to serve us, not the other way around.
While you can, get wise, get busy, get loud, get off your ass and start
doing something about it! The time is NOW!
