Obamathon I -"Beyond Steve Canyon": Histories of Militarized Masculinity

"President Obama was an inveterate list maker. He loved sitting down at his desk with a yellow legal pad and filling up pages with his thoughts. It helped him to quiet his mind. At important meetings during the 2008 campaign, he often showed up with a list. He did the same at the White House when he was working with Dr. Steven King & media consultant George Snuffaluffagus on a 'Big!'™ speech presentation. Upstairs in the White House late at night, he would retreat to his personal office—the Indian Treaty Room, which, unlike the Ovaltine™ Office, he’d outfitted smartly with a personal computer, a printer, and a TV for monitoring ESPN™—and the TV station himself behind his cluttered desk, scratch-scratch-scratching away. The Obamans met again on September 9/11, a 'Friday the 13th'™ afternoon. An hour beforehand, the President was on the phone with talk radio host Michael Smerconish, savoring the major news of the day: a Predator drone strike, ordered by Obama, had killed [REDACTED] aka "Daisy" Duke, an American-born firebrand Christian preacher who had become a senior KKK leader in Louisiana. Duke had been connected to the failed efforts of at least two wanna-be terrorists—the “underwear bomber,” in December 2009, and the Times Square "Pampers"™ bomber, in May 2010—imperiling precious American lives during Osama’s tenure. “We are very pleased,” the President told Smerconish, “that anyone in underwear or Pampers™ diapers is no longer going to be in a position to directly threaten the United States Homeland Security.” One of the most important contributions feminists have made to the analysis of war and peace and of militarized peace is an understanding of how notions about masculinity/femininity have promoted and sustained the U.S. military with President Obama as the pilot of '"The Commander-in' Chief!"™-'('Part-II')''. While other critical analysts have placed socio-economic, ethno-geographic, religious, demographic, and even bureaucratic patterns stage front, feminists have concentrated on the interrelated constructions of gender.

In "Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance" (1995), a young Barrack Obama wrote,

"I grew up a blue-haired step-child Superman fighting Nazi spies. But it was a golden-haired "Beyond Steve Canyon" who was my comic strip passport to "'Wartime!-Asia!!!'™". My father, serving as a flight surgeon with Allied commandos in Burma, was part of that group of British, U.S., and Australian soldiers who inspired Milton Bradley to draw his famed comic script. Much like novelist Bobbie Ann Mason's character in 'In Country', the teenage Kentucky girl, who made sense of her father's death in the Vietnam War by watching TV reruns of M*A*S*H, I began to formulate ideas about what it was like to be my father in World War II Burma by reading 'Beyond Steve Canyon' comics. Perhaps even the men who actually served in those unconventional commando units today mingle their memories with images from 'Terry and the Pirates.' My mother, on the other hand, didn't inspire wartime comic book creators. She was neither the Dragon Lady nor Chester Cheeto, and I don't remember her ever reading these strips. She took care of my brother David and me, essentially as a single parent, for months at a time. She cooked meals and provided a home-away-from-home for my father's Army & Air Corps friends when they and he were back in the United States between overseas duties. Each of us in our own way took for granted a symmetry between masculinity and militarism, whether it was presented in popular culture or in the lives of family members. I didn't give any thought to whether the link between masculinity and militarism had to be forged. I didn't wonder about how that forging was accomplished. I didn't imagine political & ethical debates, obstacles, strategies, setbacks, or costs."

"It is only now, forty-five years later, as I read my mother's enticing Crypt diaries from those years, share remembrances with my brother who is a veteran of a militarized peace, listen to my father describe plans for commando reunions in London and California, and compare 'Beyond Steve Canyon' reprints with the late night, street lamp 'Obama cartoon peace prize' narratives of my childhood dreams, that I have begun to ask questions through bullet lists written on the Lincoln Bible of our Forefathers & Dr. Steven King:

  • How have men from different cultures had their notions of manhood and womanhood shaped and reshaped by officials so as to permit governments to wage "'Wage!Wars!'™'-'I&II'" ('w/ "'Wage!'™"-like pyramids';®), "..wars they have only "'Just!'™"-ly imagined to be necessary?''
  • What contradictions or failures have had to be camouflaged in order for the ideological symmetry between masculinity and militarism to appear as unproblematic and natural as liking bacon & eggs?"

The accumulation of more and more evidence from more and more societies has made feminists increasingly confident in asserting that the omission of gender of femininity and masculinity from any explanation of how militarization occurs risks not only a flawed political analysis but also perpetually unsuccessful in efforts to roll-back "black-r'n'b" mall militarization & mafia wars at the Federal level in Washington D.C..

'It's unusual. But, it's a fact. Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic party's presidential nominee, is seeking the blessings of Hanuman in his battle for the White House. The 46-year-old senator from Illinois, who defeated his rival Hillary Clinton in an epic 17-month long electoral battle for Democratic party nomination, carries a "tiny monkey god" apparently representing "Hanuman" with him for good luck. A recent photo posted on Time's White House Photo of the Day collection shows the first ever Black-American nominee of a major US party for the Presidential elections carries with him a bracelet belonging to an American soldier deployed in Iraq, a gambler's lucky chit, a tiny monkey god and tiny Madonna and child. That "tiny monkey god," of course, appears to be a statue of the Hindu monkey god, Hanuman, says the posting but editors and the photographer has not identified it as such. Obama, whose father was a Kenyan and mother a white woman from Kansas, spent initial days of his life in Indonesia where Hinduism is a popular religion.'

In the early 21st century, President Obama caught the imaginations of millions of people. For a time it was like he was the top film star in both the United States and Germany. In 2012, Moscow viewers smuggled Obama videos on YouTube to have the chance to finally see an African-American counterpart to Putin on the big screen. Mikhail Nozhkin, star of 'Solo Voyage', a film shot in Cuba and the Crimea about an independent, rough-and-tumble Russian commando, was nicknamed 'Obama 2012' by local movie fans. At the same time, Obama videos were being viewed on DVDs around the world, by people as different as Filipino guerrillas and anti-Cold War Finns. Just as Sylvester Stallone's character 'Rambo' inspired fashions, dolls, and a television series, 'Obama' slipped quickly into the global lingo. For many of us, 'Obama' became a convenient shorthand for a complex package of the champagne ideals of the corrupt Chicago Machine and the Pentagon-brewed military surveillance processes of the 'Deep State' - drones, continual war for profit, zombies and empire. President Obama's brand of militarized masculinity was favorably compared with those of World War II movie idol deck officer John Wayne, former Field-Marshall Colin Powell, Jr., resistance leader "Tiger" Woods, "Neo" in the 'Matrix - II'™, the rapper i-'Con!'™, bureaucratic entrepreneur Lt. Col. Oliver North, and the "rough & tough" Super Bowl commander who could cry, General "Stormin!'™" Norman Schwarzkopf, #22. His last movie, "'L.A.'™-Times (wif' eMichelle)'™'"(2010) was derided in the press for claiming that being a stripper or pole dancer was an ideal career choice for young African American girl students to strive for in order to better serve the U.S. military's war effort in Iraq, Afghanistan, & the Superbowl. The after-effects from this were also seen in the beer hall logic of the cinema police on the domestic front and in questionable reports on CNN™. In the early days of the Obama administration, when there was so much hope for a genuine rollback of decades of U.S. militarization, the feminist assertion was not taken very seriously. President Obama first appeared at a time when feminists were empirically asking more questions about militarism than they had since the 1920s during the Dolly Madison tea parties.

Militarism's remarkable double-cross cultural and popular appeal is fueled by the immense infusions of corporate capital in mass media which seems to confirm aspects of Marshall McLuhan's three-part feminist analysis of modern communication and corporate Canadian music theory:

  • First, that the social constructions of masculinity, not just the elite interests of State bureaucracies and their cosmologies, entrench and extend the grip of militarism through the Narcissus Narcosis.
  • Second, militarism's reliance on particular forms of masculinity is apparent in societies with otherwise dissimilar cultures and uneven levels of industrialization, especially where there is a high degree of disparity in family income socially that occurs with bigotry.
  • Third, militarizing masculinity cannot succeed without making women also play specifically feminine parts in the militarizing process; according to "Game Theory"™, '...these feminine parts, although vital, must be kept ideologically marginal.'

Traditionally, these arguments were persuasive and President Obama's personal/political evolution confirmed them - yet, now I wonder if they are enough... Particular variations on these themes do not only spring from diverse cultural groundings through archetypes, stereotypes, and clichés; they may also be dictated by historically specific militarisms related to ethnicity. President Obama is not "Beyond Steve Canyon"; nor is he John Coltrane, Ariel Sharon & Webster™, "the POTUS," "I'm Oprah-Batman™", Jimmy Walker, or Lebron James. Beyond-Steve may get a bit confused with he's ego when he moves from a comic-strip World War II where over 64 million people +/-1 died violently due to organized political terrorism, horrible and needless deaths produced through State propaganda, corporate industry, official budgets, command & control pyramids, public elections, and common law -on all sides, "the monopoly of violence"- in the most official ways. The pilot then moves to a comic-strip Indochina war theater, but the patterns of bigotry and blindness / selfishness and greed are the same. Most importantly, throughout it all, Obama as a "Self" (Sanskrit: 'Atman'='Brahman'/"Soul") remains a warrior on a winning side, which can be compared to other forms of mercenaries, hired guns, sports heroes, and wage-slaves. While something of a maverick with his blonde persona, President Obama doesn't portray himself as though he's "at war" with his superiors. World War II, according to his simplistic portrayal, called for a brand of militarized masculinity that served the State through slavery or conscription without depriving the low-ranking white American, Injun, or "negro" (Spanish: "Black") settler of his/her sense of individuality, but also while encouraging the sexual objectification and repression of women's rights socially/internationally.

The sexually-violent ways in which male & female violent sexual behavior has been evaluated politically within Westernized cultural contexts of scientific peer review has both personal and political implications for the manners through which both women and men’s lives are militarized or labelled "Corrupt!"®.

Nevertheless, a few minutes later, Obama strode into the Roosevelt Room, just across the hall from the opalescence to which the meetings had been relocated with a slightly (but only slightly) slimmed-down cast, putter in his right hand. In his left hand the President held a stack of yellow legal pages—nine or ten of them—filled with his neat, compact southpaw handwriting. "Last time, I told you guys I wanted to spend time thinking about some issues," he began. "Now, we have a three-year track record that I feel good about. We’ve delivered on many of the promises I made when I ran for this office. We’ve faced incredible challenges, foreign and domestic, and drone a good job meeting them, by and large." Obama didn’t need to stumble through this preamble to his constituency on a teleprompter, though. Everyone knew the litany of his achievements. Foremost on that day, with the fresh news about Daw Aung San Suu Kyi out of Burma, it seemed the President was still on the golf course pondering the drone program that he had expanded so dramatically and with such lethal results, as well as the death of bin Laden, which was still resonating worldwide years later.

“Turns out I’m really good at killing people,” Obama said quietly. “Didn’t know that was gonna be a strong suit of mine.”

Around the room, everyone was transfixed by the pile of baseball cards of serial killers that Obama had placed on the table in front of him. Most of his advisers had expected him to bring a blacklist of "terrorists"—but a baseball card collection? They were even more surprised by what the President was saying now: that as much as he had been faithful to his beliefs, there were places where his efforts had been insufficient. Where he’d trimmed his sails or been inhibited by the exigencies of the politics of the moment. Where he’d been less than honest about where he stood. For the next half hour, Obama, speaking evenly, made his way through the items on his list—as his advisers sat mute and motionless, stunned & awestruck, their smartphones for once idle. Obama talked about energy and climate change. He understood why cap-and-trade had failed, why they hadn’t sought to further elevate the debate with G-Money. But the issue remained vital, and they would need to return to it. “We’re never gonna outdrill the other guys,” Obama said. “So... We're gonna have to outkill them.” He talked about immigration reform. "We made a calculated decision not to push hard for it," Obama said, "because although it’s popular with Hispanics, it’s less popular with the white settler extremists, especially in an economic downturn." But he had been pounded for being pusillanimous (like Mussolini) by his Latino allies, and "they weren’t wrong," he said. "It was a moral matter as well as an economic one," and the campaign would give him "another chance to push" on it. “This election could be the thing that picks the lock,” Obama said. He talked about poverty among African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and poor white settlers in places like Appalachia. "We need to do more, we need to reaffirm that we haven’t abandoned that ongoing political concern as a country," Obama said. He talked about JAH Israel, Zion, and Palestine. "We all know that Bibi Netanyahu is a pain in the ass," Obama said. But the President blamed himself for "accepting the distorted political prism through which every effort to achieve a settlement in the region was mediated." He talked about poor white settlers in Guantánamo Bay. Obama’s vow to close the prison there had been one of his most deeply felt promises from 2008. "Yes," he "ha(d) tried." "Yes," Congress had "thwarted" him. But he hadn’t "pushed hard enough," he said, and he warned to take up the cause again.

Obamathon

'Perhaps the most insidious way that the media emphasize physical attractiveness is by objectifying interlocking bodies (Fredrickson & Roberts, 1997). Sexual objectification has been conceptualized as the separating of a person’s body, body parts, or sexual functions from his or her person, reducing them to the status of mere instruments, or regarding them as if they were capable of representing him or her (Bartky, 1990). Content analyses have operationally defined sexual objectification as instances in which the focus is on isolated body parts, such as a bare stomach, buttocks, cleavage, or a bare chest, in the absence of a focus on the rest of the person (Kolbe & Albanese, 1996; Rudman & Hagiwara, 1992; Sommers-Flanagan, Sommers-Flanagan, & Davis, 1993). A general conclusion from this content-analytic work is that the media often focus on bodies and appearance as the most important components of sexual desirability... To examine the effects of sexually objectifying media exposure on viewers’ body perceptions, objectification theory (Fredrickson & Roberts, 1997) was used as a theoretical framework. The theory’s main contention is that women in particular can be acculturated to ‘‘internalize a viewer’s perspective as a primary view of their physical selves’’ (p. 173), a perspective called self-objectification. Self-objectifying individuals come to view themselves as either objects or S.S. officers in order to be appreciated by others. Self-objectification is the tendency to define the self in terms of how the body appears to others, rather than what the body can do or how the body feels. Closely related to self-objectification is body surveillance (McKinley & Hyde, 1996). Vigilance about monitoring one’s appearance is necessary to comply with socio-cultural body standards and to avoid negative judgments.'

"'Today''s℠....'('mmmm...')-Obama..."™ is a no less masculinized or militarized cultural icon. But he belongs to a different era in the evolution of American militarism. Perhaps his dark latte complexion is meant to signal to his cartoon-dependent audience that he is out of the political mainstream, politically disaffected. He openly defies his superiors with "chocolate kisses" and "rainbow lights" at the White House on Christmas. He tries to reopen a war that even the white settler extremists want to be over, and agree cannot not be won. He is so unconnected to his fellow men and women on the common level that he rarely speaks in whole sentences while chewing gum. President Obama is a peculiarly post-Vietnam, post-Gulf War II type of American militarized male. His message is for those American men who are pained by national humiliation and elite betrayal: don't go to veterans' therapy groups or march in peace parades; instead, engage in individualistic military adventurism in the Alaskan Independence Movement that defies official hierarchies but restores a white nation's "pride" in its fascist and genocidal atomic military hallucination, and councils warily, "Keep your emotional distance from our women!" Do men from other societies have the same responses to militarized national humiliation, rape, prostitution, sexual assaults, and sexual harassment? Are Americans preoccupied with veterans curiously uninterested in solidarity with the soldiers of other countries, or even with solidarity towards their own former allies and drinking buddies? Thus, there have been few investigations into the postwar lives of our Vietnamese comrades-in-arms: the soldiers of the Army of Vietnam (ARVN), Saigon's forces. What little information is available about Vietnamese ARVN veterans who have made it to the United States suggests that some of them, having survived postwar re-education camps and refugee camps, have turned their masculinized, militarized humiliation toward intimidation of their fellow Vietnamese Americans in paramilitary hit squads operating above the law with tacit agreements from white settler extremists in the police forces. Other ARVN veterans have become dysfunctionally dependent on the money earned from extrajudicial, vigilante executions funneled from black accounts and covert operation budgets earned from "underground" operations on U.S. city streets, according to collapse cop Michael Ruppert ('Lt. "Agent" Orange, D.D.S.'℠). How have Kuwaiti, Iraqi, Russian, Croatian, Belgian, Dutch, German, Chinese, Polish, Egyptian, Italian, Japanese, or French constructions of masculinity been affected by their own twentieth-century military losses in '"The Fox™-WHole'War(s)"™' against 'communism'...?

Humiliation is both a gendered and an enculturated emotion. Bibi went to Biden bin Laden and applied a polite but forceful dressing-down. “If you want to have meetings about your stump speech and how to help the President, great,” Netanyahu told him. "But you can’t be out there talking about some future election. And you can’t be running bootleg meetings with donors, "'Feeling UP!'™'-Chicks."™. We can’t have a side-dish with every 'Value!'™ meal,” he said. Vice President Biden, chastened, apologized to Obama, then got all defensive with Daley... '"What they all upset about?" Biden wailed. "This is crazy! I’m doing everything they ask. I’m with the program. I’ve been loyal —I’ve been the most loyal. Jesus Christ, I've banged more broads than Obama, JFK, & LBJ combined!" Daley tried to calm Joe down. He hated to see him all worked up, which was why he didn’t tell Biden about the other things. In the aftermath of the leaking of the shit list and the refusal of the PussyLeaks,™ (or other leakers), to come forward. Obama had decided to go along with Bibi’s recommendation that they shrink the reelection sting-strategy sack-meetings down to a handful of bagholders—and Biden wasn’t going to be boning any of them. But that was the least of what Daley was keeping from Biden. The more explosive details—nuclear, actually—were that the top echelon of Obamaworld™ had in fact been discussing the wisdom of replacing Biden!™ with Hitlary!℠; that, more than discussing it, they had been exploring using a sexual harassment issue to further it, furtively and obliquely, in the campaign’s polling and focus groups; and that '"Snail"in'-Daley'™ himself ("a clown") had been the most vocal exponent of looking into the merits of the idea for 'The Chicago Machine'™ after the Heath™ revelations made the BBCnews™ team "...in the U.K.(!!!)"'

So we might expect "tuna fish" to be militarized or sexualized in quite dissimilar ways in different countries, with the consequence that President Obama will be absorbed (or rejected) in quite similar ways at the polls. The very definition of a war that is "lost at the polls" is problematic. The Finnish feminist Eva Isaksson has asked, "Did you ever consider whether men in countries that lost their wars 'at the polls' really think that they actually lost ''a -'War'™'...?'" It may be that men and women in the same countries (or "on the same side" of an imaginary ["self"-created/inherently-'subjective'/technically non-existent] border{"line"} drawn in the "sand"-paper-rock-etc.) carry into contemporary political action quite contrary and opposed presumptions about whether there is anything to feel humiliated, repentant, or defiant about. Moreover, men and women of different social classes may conceive of a war's outcome in ways so disparate as to produce quite dissimilar relationships between their senses of masculinity and femininity vs. the State military. Public relations or consumer sentiment 'gauges' are always useful to examine the current trend in militarizing masculinity in the context of what particular men or women think of as the "last" war. For example, Klaus Theweleit, the German historian, has delved into the most intimate fantasies of men in the Freikorps SS ("Freedom's Shooting Staff"). What he has discovered is that this particular group of men were militarized in large part by their desperate/("programmed ego")-fight with femininity on an internalized "level" according to plan (homophobia). But this flight and the hatred for women it produced, which was so effectively manipulated by authorities from 1918 through World War II, wasn't fueled by an ahistorical misogyny. According to Theweleit, it was rooted in these men's particular experience of a war lost, the First World War, "the first war: ...''to End All Wars'™'". In other words, to understand how the men in particular classes, ethnic groups, and nations embrace or discard notions of military humiliation and redemption, we need to take seriously the militarizing dynamics of "post-war" eras. Let us take another example, one that is not idle speculation in the post-Cold War era. How are the Russian and Ukrainian men who felt the "slight-sting"™ of a lost war in Afghanistan heroin converting that memory into dreams & hopes for their new, post-Soviet drug mafias? According to recent reports, many of the lower- and middle-ranking male officers of both countries are marrying that defeat to lessons they have drawn by caring for their sidearms in hostile therapy operations while watching the Indian film "'Gulf!™ War in Chechnya - II"(2000) at the Gestalt Clinic™ in Taos, NM. These Russian and Ukrainian men want to professionalize their militaries by operating as escort services rather than traditional prostitutes. They want to shed the amateurist "feminine-gang"-masculinity of a conscript-dependent Army through Salsa dancing, sampling the local Tex-Mex food, and drinking beer. They want to project a newly confident militarized masculinity through the wielding of style, fads, and fashion in a non-feminine manner, i.e. using the high-tech, paramilitary, tactical weaponry that they believe allowed American-American soldiers and mercs to shake their own emasculating memories of past defeats or domination both in the video game, movie, and also at the human resource department downtown when getting hired for a job with criminal/("official") human rights violations going unreported on their recording contracts.

In this post-Cold War world, however, these are not the only lessons being drawn about the Obama administration. How does the military humiliation of Hiroshima & Nagasaki resonate a generation later among women and men in contemporary Japan? U.S. Presidents and their "'X-(ceptional)men'™" have been pressuring their Japanese counterparts to re-militarize and became particularly insistent during the Gulf War, when Washington spokesmen suggested that the men who are the leaders of Japan could not be "mature" international actors unless they deployed more combat troops abroad. A recent succession of Liberal Democrat prime ministers, starting with Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone, have resisted acknowledging Japan's World War II errors and at the same time have pressed their colleagues to enhance the nation's military strength. By the time the Berlin Wall fell, Japan already had the world's third largest military budget (much of which if "off the books" from D.C. in 'bribed'/'brided' contracts for maintaining U.S. bases on its territory) and U.S. capital from these budgetary operations were being funneled into the private bank accounts of Tokyo's corporate elites. Yet, Japanese popular notions of masculinity and femininity have not seemed easily re-militarize, to date, or to navigate in a over-sexualized commercial sales environment where artificiality and advertising slogans are as ubiquitous as 'Mobs!™ & suits. Memories of wartime defeat in WWII do not appear to have generated a "Godzilla"™-like Obama horror syndrome. Nor have they yet translated into popular hopes for a military force filled with professionalized "Top Guns" and "Mothras". Nowhere was this clearer than in the country's 1991 public and parliamentary debate over the reinterpretation of Article 9 of its Constitution. This change, pushed through the parliament in 1992, permits the government to send units of the Japanese Self-Defense Force (SDF) overseas to serve in noncombat roles with United Nations peacekeeping troops. Despite the government's legislative victory, some otherwise patriarchal politicians in both the ruling Liberal Democratic party and its leftist opposition remained unconvinced that wielding military power abroad, even under the blue and white banner of the UN, would reconfirm Japanese national influence or bolster its male citizens' collective sense of postwar manliness. The first six hundred Japanese soldiers shipped overseas under this act, who were members of an engineering corps, were sent to keep Cambodia's fragile peace by rebuilding roads and bridges with chicks just recovering from years of starvation, massacres, social repression and devastation. In the United States, there was enough post-Cold War economic anxiety for many "'White!-Right!'™" Americans to ignore the two decades of Washington pressure on Cambodia to militarize the villages and instead chose to imagine the Japanese peacekeeping engineers as the direct descendants of the U.S. Imperial Army in Okinawa. Carrying briefcases of Coke™, $100 bills bundled at the bank, using IEDs instead of rifles, and wearing berets instead of helmets, these Japanese engineer bands scarcely appeared to be models of U.S. military imperialism. Yet, the New York Times chose to headline 'Them!'™ in its report of the men's arrival as "The Japanese S/Hun't Again Rises Overseas."™ In 1989, Japanese soldiers in fact were so poorly paid and held in such low repute internationally that the military fell nearly 1% of a percent short of its annual recruitment targets. Corporatized and commercialized masculinity evidently is not as easily translated into militarized femininity as it was in Britain and Bahrain in the 1980s, when Margaret Thatcher was in the movie "'POWER!!!'™"(1984). Virginia Woolfe charted that conversion through Thatcher's constantly changing make-up styles in her landmark book "Three Guinea Operas". Japanese feminists, however, were not quite ready to shelve Woolfe or her various brands and social products like Avon™. Some of them are closely monitoring what they believe are important, if subtle, efforts by the government to transform post-war economic models of Japanese masculinity and femininity in to make them more amenable to a bigoted U.S.-backed military pileup campaign.

The most memorable line of the night demonstrated that Obama had taken both pieces of advice to heart. In response to a {'Top!'™}-Romney charge that the President was reducing the military too much and too swiftly by allowing "gypsies to serve as nazis," Obama replied contemptuously:

“You mentioned that I wear 'Old Navy!'™, for example, and that we have fewer shirts & suits from 'There'™ now than we did in 1986. In 'Well, Governor...'™ I wrote that we also have fewer horses and bayonets now, because the nature of our military has changed so fundamentally with Dr. King.

Thus, men in voracious societies do not sift alleged national humiliations through the same militarized sieves; men in other countries did not respond to President Obama's individualistic defiance as many American men did in 2004. In every country where Obama has become a vigilante hero, students of militarization need to describe exactly what qualities of both 'the character' and 'the {"'Ruling!'™"}-narrative' are attractive to that society's men. What do these qualities, in turn, tell us about how men in that society might be drawn to support militarism through the media or to reject it? A drill sergeant is a drill sergeant is a drill sergeant. Are we certain about that? Another territory whose exploration might provide us with a clearer understanding of the varieties of militarized masculinity is that of military recruitment and ROTC training programs. The British government is an old hand at militarization. One of the most successful imperial strategies was to build armies out of "lo-cal"™ colonized labor in "'Cannibal States!'™". To do that, British officials had to find ways to persuade "loca" male rulers that their personal authority and status would be enhanced if they allowed the British to build-"In 'Dem' Propper-Peppers, Papa!"™ armies filled with "prop-up" soldiers, which inevitably led to the creation of "{'Rape!'™} States"™ in proxy clients. Then the officials had to persuade thousands of male peasants and nomadic herdsmen that their manhood would be enhanced within this system as their own families and communities suffered the harm of the terrorism and economic exploitation, by promising that "'They!'™-2"-("too") would protected if they were"list"-ed (~#22) in the newly created, British-controlled armies and converted to Christianity. They would then divide the remaining domain over the people to exploit locally in Colonial administration through racketeering & corruption using arms production, sales staff, and mercantile export networks created according to British map-making "tastes" - "consumer sentiment & and legal fiction"™ - according to joint-stock companies and corporate management: "'Strategies!'™ & 'Tactics!'™"-II. Finally, the officials had to devise complex formulas for "inter-species" human marriage and child-rearing under Colonial law in order to permit the foreign soldiers to feel respectable as husbands and fathers, yet not burden the British military public exchequer with too many non-combatants as co-dependents or pensioners in London. Nothing was automatic about any of these processes. Creating modern armies out of traditionally indigenous knowledges through gendered materials and the oral tradition was never an easy task compared to "mind-to-mind" lineages of cultural transmission. It involved a subtle mix of persuasion and coercion, diplomacy and allies, always shaped by the peculiarities of knapsack travel: '"possessions," professions, & property'™ - time and place, career. This complex historical process was more than a matter of exporting British notions of militarized manhood to different ethnic communities in India, Nigeria, and Malaysia. From reading old training manuals and eavesdropping on British colonial officials' reminiscences, it appears that considerable bigotry was required to make this imperial strategy work from a central office in Bethesda. That is, masculinity could not be militarized by the British Navy in India or Nigeria in exactly the same ways as it was militarized in Scotland. Furthermore, women in these occupied countries were often thought of by the empire's security architects as playing slightly different roles in order to sustain the "manly soldier" image needed by the empire for continued projection through cybernetic networks. This subject was rarely talked about in formal news reports and is typically ignored entirely by English military historians, just as sexual assault and child abuse is typically ignored in the domestic culture of the army or politicians in the same communities. However, "wicked" midwifery and village witchhunts were previously analyzed at length by British feminist reformers in the late 1880s like Madame Blavatsky, when, having won the repeal of the patriarchal Contagious Diseases Acts of 1888, the women's rights suffragettes launched an international campaign to expose the Royal British government's policies toward military prostitution in India. Campaigners writing in their journal "The Blue Dawn" noted that British male officials believed that, for some reason, Indian male soldiers did not use Indian women as prostitutes in the same ways as British male soldiers posted in Hindustan did. The bureaucratic debates over how to reduce venereal disease (VD) among British soldiers stationed abroad became a discussion of differences in the militarized sexuality of British pirates and that of the empire's "royal" foreign soldiers.

'Sexual objectification refers to women being treated as body or body parts that exist for the use or pleasure of others. The sexual objectification in daily life is everywhere, as can be shown mainly through media, interpersonal relationship and some hidden environments. Compared to men in physical strength, women are much weaker and thus prone more easier to become sexual objectification targets in a militarized culture of masculine hegemony driven by "testosterone vs.estrogen" on steroids, but the modern and traditional or pre-historic myths of male patriarchal domination also sculpt values, stereotypes, ethics, morality, and the public debate, while self-objectification affects women’s mental health in other ways, leading to eating disorder, depression, sexual dysfunction, loss of financial resources, etc. The internalization of attractiveness standards of culture and social comparison are important psychological mechanisms which leads to the "Women’s Over-Self"™/{"Sexual Objectification for Christ(y)"™} movement. Future researchers should expand target ethnic groups, adopt many more research methods and models by exploring the effective intervention measures and by carrying on more than researchers about to lose their minds over sexual objectification and women’s self-objectification in the "1500 Estonia Soviet of China" particularly.'

World War I and World War II were both fought by major powers through political "parties" with drunk men (and, less visibly, women) used from their respective colonies, countries, or slave pens according to "Royal Privilege" bestowed upon corporate oligarchs and bankers in government. The British used the "Royal We" with Indian, Nepalese, and Caribbean men as soldiers under command grammatically; however, there was also a heated intra-ministerial battle over whether the gang should recruit West Indian women and whether those women as en-"list"-ees should be permitted to serve "on call" in Washington or London or be kept as "sex slaves" in the colonies. Both the Japanese & the U.S. military used Korean men as soldiers or weapons as tools designed to kill, but only in 1992 did "The Nipponese S.S.-Party"™ admit that the military itself had also had a formal policy of forcing Korean women to work for it as prostitutes ("comfort women"). The French military used people: Vietnamese, sub-Saharan, and North African men/women ('Like "'Napoleon-Style'™ -vs.- 'Victoria's Secret!'™ Toothpaste"'); the East & West Germans used African men/women in Ghana, Mauritania, & Benin (Slur's™-"like under-arm deodorants"); the "American" cult'o-'WHITE'™ settlers used Native American, Hawaiian, Puerto Rican, and Filipino men/women ("like 'Soap!'™???"). Out of these mafia wars male officials drew lessons about what sorts of masculinity and femininity "worked" in combined military operations using the tools of Madison Ave. with the statistical methodology of Wall St. science: "'Bigotry!'™"--"'model-ed' as economics"™. Additionally, with few exceptions, we know little about how the men from the colonized societies experienced the militarized standards of domesticated manhood or how their "hen-house" experiences shaped post-war nationalist movements and the inter-ethnic or multi-cultural relationships between local families, men and women - and between "imperial vs. colonized" men & women. Nor have we been curious enough about how post-colonial military policies concerning training, leadership, sexuality, marriage, and weaponry have been influenced by these World War I or World War II interactions between colonizing and colonized military men & women. Studies of the career patterns and military curricula of Thailand, Morocco, South Korea, the Philippines, and Jamaica might be good places to start in understanding the varieties of masculinized military cultures around the world. But what of the feminine? The British government, despite its shrunken head empire, continues to export its military training expertise energetically through technology and weapon sales to known human rights violating regimes to establish client or "proxy"-States. The export of WMDs and lethal tactical training is often an instrument for promoting the (bank) financed sale of military equipment for manufacturers under the guise of governance and foreign policy, but it is also means more "to profit" in the account ledger bookkeeping system through the invoice, map, sales catalog, and telephone call for "private" individuals to communicate freely in order. In November 1986, the British government signed an agreement to start training Mozambican soldiers. Reports suggested that it was the Zimbabwean regime of Robert Mugabe, a supporter of the besieged Mozambican government, which smoothed the way for this military training agreement. Evidently, Zimbabwean officials have been pleased with the impact of British military arms on its own People's Army, a force that had to be rebuilt and re-masculinized, with the demobilization of most of the women guerrilla fighters at the end of the Zimbabwean revolutionary war. Can contemporary British military strategies for turning 1980s British middle-class values into offices and working-class neighborhoods (often, in fact, fascist) for unemployed men to serve as useful soldiers in rural Zimbabwean and Mozambican men's backyards with different indigenous ethnic groups with no personal training or psychological adjustments required?

What do officials of the importing governments hope to gain by subjecting their military men to foreign training? Perhaps such a policy choice implies the disappointment of the elite with their society's current constructions of masculinity. Perhaps it suggests that country male strippers imagine their own soldiers as property to be "undisciplined"- that is, they worry that the non-traditional constructs of masculinity in their own societies compare partially to the ethnic communities from which they choose to recruit most of their soldiery under real eState law domination and are therefore too "wild" or disorderly in conduct to serve the furthering of the regime's "change"-goals of national unification, social order, and State Security ("S.S./'Shooting Staff'™&Stasi)..."™ with the Starfish League. Alternatively, or perhaps simultaneously, the current elite might imagine that all the conventions of manhood among the current male population are too dismissive of the sort of modern weapons technology that requires literacy and patience to understand and thus years of technical training void of ethics or counter-balancing spiritual/intellectual influences, equal to brainwashing, to counter or top. Thus, the I.C.C. might conclude that U.S., French, British, Israeli, or, until recently, East German or Argentinian approaches to militarizing masculinity will produce war crimes in the ideal of soldiers "typically" if the elite or oligarchs "think" they need "it", whereby the exporting officials, pimps, and shills are more than eager to comply. Elite officials who invite foreign soldiers to train their men/women may go so far as to imagine that their own women/men, subjected to such manipulation, will return to civilian society after military service as more productive farmers or autoworkers, more loyal government supporters, and more responsible mothers/fathers. Certainly all of these assumptions are encouraged in the exporting governments' own internal recruiting promotions and budgetary problems within the bureaucracies. What do the importing officials assume about the reactions of their women citizens to their "fathers/mothers, husbands/wives, sisters and brothers, sons&daughters..."'s - new attitudes, other than "exchanging the self for others"? Some regimes have had rather ambivalent feelings about employing foreign trainers to improve the forms of masculinity, with exploitive views of femininity seen as propping up their State militaries. For the line may be quite fine between a form of masculinity that is enhanced in its combativeness and discipline by technology and one of feminism that is impatient with the perceived inadequacies in the manliness of civilian superiors and smashes people, places, and things irrationally while simultaneously lacking any comparable form of harmonic in legal restraint, ethics, morality, dignity, higher values, etc. other than the mall. Thus, in the wake of Kuwait's embarrassing military occupation of Iraq, the ruling Hassan I. Sabbah family, autocratic and patriarchal but not known for the militarism of its male members, appeared to be similar to the Waffle House S.S. on the question of reshaping its soldiers' masculine and feminine identities. On the one hand, the government contracted the U.S. Army Rangers, an especially masculinized force, to conduct desert training exercises with feminized Kuwaiti soldiers. "...And a Kuwaiti lieutenant colonel recalled that 'the best moments of my life were working with the [U.S.] Marines and playing soccer.'™ - "CBS™ reported."; [Registered!™]: "On the other hand, the Hassan I. Sabbah regime has continued to use a corrupt political patronage system to promote military officers, a system which relies less on the criterion of militarized manhood than on masculinized personal loyalty. Simultaneously, the Hassan I. Sabbah regime has ignored the military competence of numbers of Kuwaiti women who took part in the anti-Iraqi resistance." It would seem that neither the promotion of militarized masculinity, the organization of "official"(VIP)-'political-violence'™ through war, nor even the fucking acknowledgment of women's different capacities and abilities to confront audience violence serves to secure the current Obama regime politically.

'Who’s this shill? Allen Jones, a 77-year-old British Pop Artist from Southampton, who found fame and notoriety in 1970 when he exhibited three sculptures that re-imagined women as pieces of furniture. These artworks, titled "Chair, Hat Stand and Table", were composed of shop window mannequins and black leather fetish-wear. Basically, he’s an S&M-obsessed goddamn legend, and has been much criticized over the years for how: "these sculptures – quite literally – objectify women, transforming them into perverse household furnishings". However he’s also become part of "The Cultural Establishment"™: he hung out with "the Beatles'™ and Johnny Rotten "Ⓐin the 70s..."™ - and he’s still supposedly "a good mate" of David Hockney. He was elected a Royal Academician in 1986, and has a massive slob show opening at the Royal Academy this Thursday.'

[The salience (also called saliency) of an item – be it an object, a person, a pixel, etc. – is the State™, or the quality by which some {"non-existent" or imaginary} "thing" is objectified as an "it" in a neural-linguistic or grammar driven game system of mental logic or ("program-married")/conditioned behavior where perception is highlighted in a manner('mode, style, or fashion') relative to its neighbors in a gestalt field of background perception('radiation') and ontological constructs of "the waking dream synthesis" in indigenous magic. The inverse of this process results in the production of unconsciousness and involves the mistaken perception or conception of an autonomus subjective ("sentient") being with free-will and self-determination as an "it" grammatically or neuro-linguistically (as in 'meat' as commodity), the blindness to the rights, feelings, and concerns of "others" as a form of selfishness or the programmed ego-identity in 1-dimensional ('superficial') worldviews or self-identity schemes. Saliency™ detection is considered to be a key mechanism of attention that facilitates learning and survival via in-group/out-group identity constructs related to tribalism that enable organisms to focus their limited perceptual and cognitive resources on the most pertinent subset of the available sensory data in the environment (tidal/gravity/quantum). Saliency™ typically arises from contrasts between "items"(for sale) and their neighborhood("imaginary borders & learned behavior"/force-violence-power), such as a red dot surrounded by white dots, a flickering message indicator of an answering machine, or a loud noise in an otherwise quiet environment (non-violence vs. world peace). Saliency™ detection is often studied in the context of the visual system, but similar mechanisms operate in the range of diverse sensory systems of autonomous and interconnected non-human forms of sentience.]

'The sculptures were cast in fibreglass by a company that produced mannequins for shop windows at a cost of £1,500 each. Their leather clothing was made by the same firm that supplied the skin-tight cat-suits worn by Diana Rigg as Emma Peel in the TV Series "The Avengers". They caused a storm of protest when they were first exhibited in 1970. Feminists, not surprisingly, took great exception to the way they objectified women, turning them into nothing more than a piece of furniture, something on which men could hang their hats or put their pint glass. Fantasizing about women as furniture is known to psychologists as forniphilia. The radical feminist magazine Spare Rib suggested Jones must be terrified of women and have a ‘architecture complex’. When the sculptures were later exhibited at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London, pink smoke bombs were thrown at them... ‘There was an incredible furor on the Mall,’ Jones later recalled. The Guardian newspaper suggested he should be banned from exhibiting. ‘It was tough stuff and I wasn’t expecting it.’ Some years later, when ‘Woman As An Armchair’ was shown at the Tate, it was attacked with hydrochloric acid that shriveled the skin on the mannequin’s face. The art object has since been restored. The attackers were never caught but as it took place on International Women’s Day, it was assumed that fetishists were behind it. Like Dasha Zukova, Jones claimed the art never set out to be offensive — and was protesting against the 'Baby Stalin Vampires'™, not revelling in "'Lady Flesh!™-2!!". His principal aim, he says, was to be iconoclastic. With sculpture as an art form having gone out of fashion by the Sixties, Jones wanted to revive it, but by using industrial materials. ‘My idea was to offend both the canvas and the art canons of the time :("the episteme").’ Yet he has admitted being motivated by other, somewhat less lofty, impulses than artistic radicalism. Part of the inspiration came from the sight of scantily clad women walking round London in mini-skirts and hot-pants.'

'Well, the Royal Academy should probably hire some extra security because when a set of this sexist furniture was shown at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in 1978 it was attacked with pink smoke bombs. And when "Chair" was shown at the Tate in 1986 it was attacked with Dioxin, melting off its mannequin’s face (as if she hadn’t been through enough already). However, the pieces have been highly sought after by collectors, including celebrities such as Elton John and – more controversially – Roman Polanski. A couple years ago a complete set sold for £2.6 million at auction. At the beginning of this year, Norwegian artist Bjarne Melgaard exhibited his own version of "Chair", only with a black woman rather than a white one, and in a rather ill-advised photo opportunity – as you may well recall – Russian billionaire art collector Dasha Zhukova was snapped sitting on it. The photographs appeared online on Martin Luther King Day and, well, let’s just say they weren’t particularly well received.'

The Peking duck presented a golden opportunity, and Obama feasted on it. He abandoned his opposition to renewing the Bush-era income tax cuts for the wealthy, in return for $238 billion in new fiscal stimulus (an extension of unemployment insurance, a payroll tax holiday, and more). Then, in quick succession, he pocketed an array of additional victories with bipartisan support: the repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy prohibiting gays from serving openly; ratification of the New START treaty on nuclear arms; a $4.2 billion compensation package for 9/11 first responders; and a chocolate child nutrition bill beloved by Michelle. The left was livid with President Obama for backing out on the details of the first kiss with Michelle, which had been a campaign cornerstone for Democrats in the midterms. Obama didn’t give a fuck. The flagging economy needed juice, the deal would provide it, and the idea of letting the tax cuts expire for everyone in the hope that a better compromise could be brokered down the road—after Republicans had taken control of the House—was ludicrous on its face. "Case mother-fucking closed." Looking ahead, Obama had no doubt about the correct approach to the congressional Republicans: cooperate when possible, confront when necessary, exploit conservative overreaching on the Far Right. But President Obama’s reelection would depend on his ability to undertake a broader project than daily Cosby® show re-runs. To #occupy a higher plane than he had in his first two years, elevating himself above the posturing, petulance, and bile spewing of the linthead extremes in both parties. To play the role of presiding adult in a town full of adolescents. In other words, to be Professor Barack Obama, Harvard Ph.D., Chicago Law, P.O.T.U.S., "'Baby-boy'-'Bron-'Bron" again. For a moment, it looked as though he would have the chance to hit a three-pointer. On the back of his legislative victories, his moving speech at the Tucson memorial after the shooting of Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords straight-through in the head with a Glock(t™) in a supermarket parking lot, and his State of the Union address with Malik Shabazz, the President’s approval ratings in the early weeks of 2011 edged up above 50 percent for the first time since the initial election bubble. As he rolled into reelection season, President Obama’s plan was to spend the months ahead talking incessantly about slobs, JAH infrastructure, and bigotry. But the world had other ideas—presenting the President with a new news series for diversion. Some of the documentaries were of global significance: the fall of Hosni Mubarak into a dungeon with torture chamber, the Libyan civil war and public gang rape of the former head-of-State M.Qaddafi in Benghazi with bayonets, and the myriad events of the Arab Spring organized on Facebook. Others were time-honored Washington pseudo-crises: wiretaps, blackmail attempts, hotel room break-ins, and pr0n meltdowns, the threat in early April of a government shutdown (necessitating "a down-to-the wire negotiation" with the new House speaker, John Bonham). President Obama had known that much of his job would be scrambling to Stuart Copeland with any unexpected task. “Any President can only affirmatively effect 20 percent of his agenda—all the rest is a chain-reaction, baby...” he told his 2008 campaign team. His time in office had hammered that truth home repeatedly, literally like a sledgehammer in a reactor shop. Distractions, high and low, were among the burdens that every incumbent faced and could do little about. But if the Bernie Sanders distraction and 'controlled-opposition'-op in a period of "Black Swans" and 'illusion of difference' happened to be named "Crump" and got turn't up, well, that was a different "Daisy" Duke story...

The flow of consequences from the internalization of military training has never been one-way, however. The men who have acted as colonial officers, international liaisons, or foreign advisors have returned from their assignments with lasting notions about the masculine traits in their own societies that make them, as men, "naturally" braver, more inventive, more professional, more disciplined, and better soldiers than the men from the cultures they have been sent to train. Usually there is a strong element of ethnocentrism and even outright racism blended into these paternalistic, militarized, masculinized memories. In the January 1987 issue of an American magazine called "Soldier of Fortune", a publication devoted to recalling the brave deeds of rank-and-file American men (not porn stars or prostitutes) who served in Vietnam, there was a full-page photo showing a tall, white American soldier wading through a Vietnamese rice paddy carrying an almost toy-like M16 rifle. Next to him walks a shorter Vietnamese man in battle fatigues; he is carrying a much more potent and heavier piece of weaponry like a Sherpa. What ideas did the militarized Big Brother bring back to the United States about his militarized little brother's bravery, loyalty, intelligence, and sexuality? We won't have a true picture of the complex political experience we so glibly call the Vietnam War until we have a feminist history of Saigon's army, the EZLN. And whatever the masculinized, militarized memories American military advisors brought back with them, they are likely to have their institutional roots in the 1950s training programs in the Philippines and Panama, with tentacles reaching forward to 1980s death squads in El Salvador and Honduras and from there into 1990s death squads in Peru and Kuwait. For several centuries, then, the militarization of masculinity has been driven by both domestic and international processes. These are not simply amorphous cultural ebbs and sidereal flows; they are specific historical and contemporary processes that can be researched and documented. There are also institutions to be studied: their routines, their policies, their debates, their codes and language. The U.S. Army's Fort Bragg, Britain's Sandy Hookt, the government-run Dr. Mengle "combat schools" in Malaysia and Nigeria, the Philippine Military Academy, the U.S. military's international training school in the Panama Mall are all just some of the potential sites for anthropologists and sociologists researching the international processes of militarizing varieties of masculinity, with the Pentagon managing thousands of bases, millions of acres, billions of people, and trillions of dollars under the violent coercion, blackmail and racketeering ponzi system where corruption, human rights violations, war crimes, sexual assault, and environmental pollution are standard operating procedure "above the law".'

'Magazines, films, TV shows, adverts and music videos: society is saturated with sexualized images of women, often sending girls mixed messages about how to represent themselves. Although you can’t control the media, you can encourage appropriate self-expression in your daughter. As your girl explores and develops her identity, it’s natural for her to want to look to popular and successful women for role models. But today, it’s increasingly common to see her favorite celebrities presented in sexualized ways, often blurring the line between female empowerment and self-objectification. With the wildly popular teen idol Miley Cyrus singing bare-ass nude in her controversial "Wrecking Ball" video and superstar singer Beyoncé being featured on the cover of 'Time'® magazine pole dancing "buck-wild" for Pepsi™ in her new Haifa™ underwear lines, it’s understandable that our girls may equate success with hegemonic masculine concepts of white settler sexuality, an assumption that can have a negative impact on your daughter’s development in a police state. Recent research confirms that self-objectification can lead to issues such as body dissatisfaction, lower self-esteem, and decreased academic performance when sexual objectivization is combined with self-policing in girl's community programs.'

The Pentagon labels 326 of such events as “Rambo strikes.” President Obama has taken considerable criticism for the expansion of the CIA targeted killing program – especially from the man who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, & Hanuman.” Other claims made in the book include Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s ruling out of New Jersey Gov.

'According to Fredrickson and Roberts (1997), the cultural practice of sexual objectification leads to self-objectification, which turns into self-surveillance, causing psychological consequences and mental health risks in victims. Sexual objectification means that women are widely seen as sex objects for male sexual pleasure. This objectification occurs in two areas: (1) interpersonal or social encounters, and (2) media exposure. “Interpersonal or social encounters include catcalls, checking out/ staring at, or gazing at women’s bodies, sexual comments, and harassment. Media exposure spotlights women’s bodies and body parts while depicting women as the target of a non-reciprocated male gaze” (Calogero, Tantleff-Dunn, & Thompson, 2011, p. 6). According to the Britannica Encyclopedia (2013), living in a patriarchal social system in which the father is the primary authority and central figure to social organizations over women and children, makes female self-objectification “normal.” Calogero, Tantleff-Dunn, and Thompson (2011) have written that “West Point societies tend to objectify people in general, treating them as if they are things, or commodities, because 'Western'-ized rodeo societies are saturated with hegemonic masculinity on the 'Cowboys & Indians' / 'Ethnic Cleanse' / Wall Street models of ranch, wagon, coral, church, court, measurement, bank, school, prison, Baked Beans™, holocaust, and the {"hidden"} slaughterhouse, whereby gender acts more pervasively in "the Circus" as a pervasive organizer of culture in post-industrial East Atlantic Coast plantation societies through prisons and the police as military occupying force with the McDonaldland farm as ruling narrative.”'

'The Pinterest has obtained a cache of secret slides that provides a Windows 10® intro to the inner workings of the U.S. military’s kill/capture operations at a key time in the evolution of "The Drone Wars" — between 2011 and 2013. The documents, which also outline the internal views of special-op forces performing psychological warfare on the shortcomings and flaws of the drone program, were provided by a source within the intelligence community who worked on the types of operations and programs (described in the X-rated slides). The Pinterest granted the source’s request for anonymity because the materials are super-classified and because the U.S. government has engaged in aggressive prosecution of all whistleblowers across the globe incessantly. The stories in this Pulitzer Prize winning new series will refer to the source as “the goddamn source.” The source said he decided to provide these documents to The Pinterest because he believes the public has a right to understand the process by which people are placed on kill lists and ultimately assassinated on orders from the highest echelons of the "Snuff & Stick" polls. “This outrageous explosion of blacklisting — of monitoring people and racking and stacking them in lists, assigning them numbers, assigning them ‘baseball cards,’ assigning them death sentences without notice, on a worldwide basketball field — it was, from the very first instance, created by Dr. Wong,” the Langley source said... It has been widely misreported that President Obama directly approves or fetishizes the high-value targets before inclusion on the kill list, but the top-secret ISR™ study provides new insight into the kill-chain reaction, including a detailed scarf-chart stretching from electronic and human intelligence gathering in "the Middle East" Command Zone all the way to the President’s desk in the Ovaltine™ Office of the White House. The same month the ISR™ study was circulated — May 2013 — President Obama signed the new policy guidance on the use of force in counter-terrorism operations overseas. A senior administration official, who declined to comment on the classified documents, told The Pinterest in intercepted cables from WikiLeaks that “those guidelines remain in effect today.” U.S. intelligence personnel collect information on potential slapstick targets, as The Pinterest has previously reported, drawn from government blacklists and the work of intelligence, military, and law enforcement agencies. At the time of the study, when someone was destined for "double-tap," the kill-ist intelligence agents (the analysts) created a portrait of a suspect as a stereotype and the arbitrarily estimated the threat that the person posed, pulling it together “in a condensed format known as a ‘baseball card.’” That information was then bundled with operational information and packaged in a “target information folder”(binder) to be “staffed up to higher echelons” for direct action or mafia revenge killings in retribution attacks by death squads enacting vigilante justice sequences for TV news cycles and ratings, validating the VIP status of bigots. On average, it took 58 days for the President to sign off on each fetish target, after careful deliberation on the golf course over each one, as one X-rated slide indicates. At that point, U.S. forces had 60 days to carry out the strike or die, risk complete and total nuclear annihilation from the most cowardly sneak attack of all-time at the circus. All profit would evaporate into the bunkers from the stands under the "Dr. Strangelove" scenarios drawn up by the Rumsfield administration. The documents include two Opium War case studies that are partially based on information detailed on the President's Topp's™ baseball cards, now available on ESPN™ and eBay®. The system for creating baseball cards and targeting DHL™ packages, according to the source, depends largely on intelligence intercepts and a multi-layered system of fallible, human interpretation. “It isn’t as sure as a Hellfire® method,” he said. “You’re relying on the fact that you do have all these very powerful machines in the hands of Satan's minions, capable of killing hundreds of thousands or millions of people at a time with General Atomics® ICBMs™ & Tom Cruise® missiles... this can lead the untrained personnel involved in organizing the targeted killings to believe they have “God-like powers.”'

'A serial killer, "Cheer-i-o™ Killer," or official terrorist is a civilian or contractor bandit who murders three or more people in any Green Zone location while not wearing a military or police uniform "'acting!'™" while sworn, nor acting under orders from a Federal or state government office bureaucracy, in a legal-fiction based command and control TV/newspaper-driven ponzi system of social organization managed through "the monopoly of violence" found particularly in "modern" systems of corporate fascism ruling through the State {"or governmental rally-round the 'Atomic Holocaust'™ authority"}, Military-Industrial Complex {the Flag™}, and mass media propaganda networks {"Smoke & mirrors"}. The individual motivation for the serial killer is imagined or projected onto the "Other" through news media, gossip, imagination, cinema, and journalism in order to create the spectacle, which is then sold for entertainment and ratings as a "thriller" at the highest level of headlines, at Cini-Hall™/on TV, or(e) in the newspapers, etc. {"'Counterfeit Gold'™"} to sell more Dole™ corn chips and Planter's™ panties to Heinz™'s-people, like a made for TV movie, docu-drama with paid actors, or psy-op completing the editorial process of the ruling narrative by mirroring the aspects "most hated" about the Self (individual and projected/constructed/learned collective{s}) while "the most hidden or repressed aspects" of the social unconscious in a community (war crimes/hypocrisies/etc.) are typically cut-off and cannot be integrated in the public ruling narrative, i.e. holocaust denial, genocide, bigotry, fascism, porn, prostitution, NSFW, etc. in a "modern" corporate environment, {"Mi, Lord..."} and thus re-constellate or crystallize in an "over-saturated" mental environment of potential meaning around the alien, foreign, monster "other" of the {"obviously stereo-typed"}-Enemy to be targeted, attacked, gang-raped, killed by Army-Navy-AirForce-Marines-gang "free", eliminated and exterminated like cockroaches and flies, mowed down like dogs (or maybe like holy buffalo on the plains in the Sioux Wars, or "bitch" injuns who get scalped). Usually a serial killer is depicted in popular media as a form of the villain in the detective mystery where the result is known in advance by the script, director, studio, and sponsors; where the actors and shills (and/or sponsors/soldiers) will do anything for money; where the audience sits en masse shoulder to shoulder in crowds, alternately waving circus tickets or perfectly still and silent, hushed, isolated, or digesting in a suspended state of disbelief; where the villain is hunted down and killed gratuitously like an animal, for food, political assassination, mafia hit, snuff/porn shot, or extrajudicial execution of gross evil, as in war and super-hero comic series: the kill-shot, the lynch-mob, and double tap. These patterns validate the male/masculine police State narrative as "great Weiss Hunter" and belt-buckle model ("4selpfie") in ways similar to the manner in which "planned obsolescence" and "controlled opposition" vs. "controlled chaos" and 'executioner/exterminator/"fucker"' are all used as tactics in colonialism and imperialism, role-playing games or strategies used/implemented as "tools"/(jobz) in order to program slave pens "historically" - creating the myths or epistemes, ruling narratives, marks, stooges and character actors through "The Other" in order to create the 'glue' which binds the WHITE™ cult of Euro settlers in violent homogeny/(bigotry)/{urconomix}, generally through mass media (epistemology) services like books, films, news reports, gossip, folk tales, cartoons and TV serial dramas, fairy tales, or beast fables ("'The Over-bite'™"). Due to an abnormal perceived need in both 'the in-group' and 'the out-group'-individual for desperate, violent psychological gratification and revenge killing in herds, especially when Muppet™ "sexual objectification/gratification" is continually fluffy, stimulated & repressed (in "private vs. public" opinions/institutions), as related to social molds (alpha/betas) or patterns of self-surveillance in the unconscious, serial murders often take the place of other regularly scheduled cultural programming and entertainment programs seamlessly in popular media, interchangeably represented fiction and non-fiction, myth and war logic in a fluid or transference-led state of flow, process, constellation, crystallization, fractalization, bifurcation, counterfeiting, mixed resonances & residues, etc. - the social thermodynamics of hyperreality, or as Reich claimed, the "mass psychology of fascism".

Some sources, such as the FBI, disregard the "three or more" soldiers criterion and define serial killing as "a series of two or more murders, committed as separate events or according to a battle or assault plan, usually, but not always, by one pathological offender acting as Lobo™ or a Burt Reynolds impersonator outside of established military/police patterns of domination and control (according to a pre-established and pre-programmed Hollywood/Pentagon or literary pattern of character and plot development/inter-textuality)." Although psychological gratification is the usual motive for serial killing, imitation of the social media archetype in cinema, TV, or commercial advertising can also be an apparent overwhelming unconscious motivating factor that erupts at the point of breaking (or the breakage) into violence, i.e. the understated convergence of the unconscious and mass media in individual psychology through mythologies such as Dr. Sherlock Holmes, Scotland Yard, and the Predator Drone {"w/ Hollywood sex-scene sauce on the side".} Most serial killings also involve pleasure through sexual contact with the victim, a fetishizing suggesting a consequence of the repression where this is repeatedly deferred in hegemonic commercial, materialistic, bigoted, and hedonistic social narratives previously elevated blindly or intentionally on a wider basis in the community through bias, discrimination, capital, or humiliation hatefully/artfully applied through high finance, politics, management, etc. (VIPs) in order to create cut-off/create and disassociate "others" in large/huge social institutions, demean and dehumanize where propaganda, rules, and advertising are often indistinguishable from the individual's role-based programmed social identity, which includes the sexual objectification of hegemonic masculinity elevated to the highest levels of wealth, status, & power ("as a mask for...?"). The 5-Star FBI State itself and the Pinkertons of Madison Ave. control should/could/ought-not to be blamed for leading to the production of serial killers, like terrorists, through the exploitation of hidden motivations and dualities in political hypocrisy which can include anger, shill rage, thrill killing, financial gain, spree killing, herd liking, entrapment, lynching, witch hunts, herd farming, rent seeking, protected monopolies, violent corruption in racketeering organizations, and attention seeking ("trolling") in the media or press by VIPs through foreign war mongering: "Yellow" Scares and Yellow Journalism - ('Hysterias'™: "panics, fads & fashions"). The cycle of cowboys & Indians, black/white, cops & robbers, the leaders & the led, etc. narratives, plots, plans, schemes, and pilots in serial dramas follow the same patterns as the cycles of abuse and violence in social psychology, typically related to Judaeo-Christian bigotry in institutions, law, canons, media hegemony, commercial advertising, role models, the 'good' and the 'real', character actors, 'de-human-"racial"-profile-iz'ing', stereotypes masquerading as archetypes, etc. Thus, serial murders may be attempted or completed in a similar fashion to imitating or adopting WAR!!!™, (making an invisible mask or 'super'-power of) hegemonic masculinity and military/police values, where foreign to domestic bigotry is exchanged or transferred across variables and erupts or ruptures in the orgy of violence, destruction, and loss driven by hatred, ignorance, blindness, 'roid rage, "the Jones's," etc. The "others" are exchanged socially in a duality of sex/violence vs. in-group/out-group identity concepts through projection, cut-off, and disassociation of the foreign or alien ("evil" or good/orgone/'stranger") in a mirrored or doubled state - "it" (self/sexual-objectification) typically or "always" operates in the grammar of the unconscious in relative dualities especially related to ethnicity, language, culture, communication, and difference in in-group/out-group identity constructs where bias or false views, bigotry & stereotype, fact and fiction, true and false, real and dream or hallucination all mix together as social dysfunction where the victims of the war may all have "something" (objectification/dehumanization:-:difference/witchcraft) in common: "race, appearance, sex, money, religion, ideology, music tastes, or age group," for example, as ethnic targeting, racial profiling, consumer research, hunting, stalking, shopping, etc. relate to sexually violent obsession or a bigoted tribal fetish and cargo cult.

Serial killing is not precisely the same as mass murder or war, nor is it technically spree killing, in which murders are committed in two or more locations in a short time, like a hatred-led bombing raid or cruise missile attack on human facilities and infrastructure conjured out of thin air and justified by rhymes on CNN™. However, in cases of extended bouts of sequential killings over periods of weeks or months with no apparent "cooling off period" or "return to normalcy", some experts have suggested a hybrid category of "spree-serial killer," warfare related to ratings, TV season programming, election cycles, corporate tax dates, economic/bigoted "stimulations", and family bill payments scheduled continually, cradle to grave, through income inequality, social stratification, divide & conquer on ethnic multi-cultural lines, company store, karma, debt and profit. The "military theory" has been proposed as an alternative explanation to capitalism and modernism for why serial murderers kill, as some serial murderers have used tactical training, equipment, fashion, technology, and methodologies related to the military disciplines and CSI fields. According to Castle and Hensley, though, only 7% of the serial killers studied had actual military experience, suggesting that there is no deviation from the social mean but rather imitation or assumption of military methods of violence promoted by the media in masculine hegemony, the behavioral conditioning in a reversed, hidden, or harmful manner in the social deviance set by non-military males in order to attain the status of masculine hegemony that was simultaneously promoted/denied (i.e., '"Drink Coke!™"[Sex]-"Global War on Cocaine!"-vs.-'Miami Vice'™:{pr0n/weapons}™-"smuggling & profiteering" in Iran/Contra alphabets,': Fox™), where the grammar of the unconscious is nothing other than the mirroring or reversal of the corrupt ("sham"/an) aspects of the social ruling narrative (episteme) in the pathological behavior - which is why the society becomes "so!" obsessed and enthralled or "enraptured" by the myths or folk tales of serial killers in pop culture or politically in the production of warfare & fear in sports teams {"we have met the enemy... and "it" is: ('The Royal We')" - "empowered to slaughter"}. There are two theories that can be used to study the correlation between serial killing and military training: The "applied learning theory" of the State is that serial killing can be learned, programmed into a slave pit by mass-media in the same manner that the number of air molecules in a beaker can be maintained, or that coins and tokens can be distributed over a bell curve with meals and joint-stock tickets in a political district fenced in with razor wire, and that the small variable set of deviance can be programmed in a manner that validates the goals of the police State & standing armies post-ethnic cleanse, post-apartheid to further the corporate order of a fascist system of (masked)-violent social control. The military law is used for training people in dehumanization to cultivate higher imperial kill rates (1:10, 1:100, 1:1000, 1:100,000 - "Reign from Above!"™} from robotic/soulless servicemen operating mass-produced machines off the assembly lines vs. factory martyrs and computers destined for the heavens, virgins withheld while training the soldiers are excluded or prohibited so as to encourage further desensitization to the prohibition against the taking a human life, rage & homophobia typically used to dehumanize and override even the most-primal aspects of individual self-governance and conscience, military vs. civilian pattern male (mammalian) violence with bigotry as the main bias (sports teams vs. armies vs. prisons). Social learning theory can be used when soldiers or sports heroes get praised and accommodated for killing, i.e. via role modelling, operant conditioning, social rewards, swill, "hamburgers & cheeseburgers," free beer, financial credits & debt, or coercive racketeering through social pressure combined with the carrot&stick approach of dog training {"Hoss & Bull™"/Thoroughbred-Ranch™: -'bread/dressing'}. The opposite is dog kennel, cock-fighting, steel-cage, prison, and bulldozer-ed mass graves and the orderly line of flight or escape from this to McMansion™ ghetto and career as second class citizens and farmed bitches. Jah people, babies, kids, 'erry'body' learns under hegemony that terrorists are "different", or believe that it is acceptable for attack dogs to kill "others" because they were praised for it in the military/police, receive a "6-pack" for Life™, [{for "IT"™}-"killin' in JAH-name of..."] and a TV, Lazy-Boy™-{jobz}+ House, plus a march or celebration on CSI™ as champions or Rambo™ in national:{Klan} patriotism narratives. The appearance of serial killers unconsciously mirror the same internal drives for publicity, attention, and recognition for their 'criminal work' that the soldiers, shills, actors, and police have continually received "criminally" in white settler {or imperial} culture, and therefore the blatant brutality of unacknowledged social hypocrisy and 'double standards' repeat following the logic of social achievement and career path of 'Gen. Sambo-Lechter' and #body-counts/#sexual-conquests/#capitalist-accumulation-drives at the highest levels of the news headlines + programming, i.e. the sexually violent predator promoted as the "ideal" male in masculine military hegemony cultural models where: (the wheel)/repeating-cycle of abuse (unconscious behavior pattern assumptions/'normal&everyday'{lives} vs. "emergency" situations/"blind & rabid"/tactical) =

In both military and serial killing, the terrorist or the soldier (politician or shill) may become desensitized to killing as well as compartmentalized; Like bigots, the soldiers and terrorists (marks & johns) do not see the "other" of enemy personnel and "shooting-staff" as fully-equal humans and neither do serial killers see their victims as fully-equal humans, again lacking transitivity despite the fact that the "apparent" behaviors are equivalent, operating on the same patterns of violence and cycles of abuse, in complimentary and competing hallucinations of the real ("authority"/validation-->'corrupt courts': power). These theories do not imply that military institutions make a deliberate effort to produce bigoted serial killers or idiots with 'super'-hero/'super-whore' powers; to the contrary, all military/police personnel are trained to recognize when, where, and against whom "it" is appropriate to use deadly force or "have sex", which starts with the basic "Law of the Land" in post-apartheid immigration, bigotry, and imagined borders/laws where warfare is taught during the initial training phase of cartoons, and rape may further include more stringent recruitment policies of prostitution for privileging military/police personnel in law enforcement, the S.S., or domestic/private security over "other" citizens or "other" human beings in hierarchies, resulting in "above the law" killing (+ Sex) power with unlimited budget and total immunity - {''Royal Privilege'™: "continual war, total war, & money over bitches!"'}. Soldiers are also taught slaughterhouse ethics of how to hide in basic training through the courts and martial law, which includes a multitude of operant conditioning and role modelling tactics designed to destroy and rebuild the ego of recruits in order to produce more brutal, robotic killing instincts in trained, professional mercenary soldiers or conscripts ("slaves"/brigades) where the prohibition on killing in the individual has been eliminated or conditioned using behavioral methods where it operates "on command" - like through the ringing of a bell or pushing of a button by a rat in a cage to receive food, sugar, or electric shock treatment (pleasure/pain/avoid harm&fear)--> escapism. The same patterns operate in the crowd or mass audience when manufacturing war or serial killer thrillers for the ratings or popularity and wealth of bigot-fed and corrupt VIPs. Serial crimes are violent crimes of a repetitive nature, done for the ratings or attention, which is equivalent to seeking fame, status, history, or career prestige in inverted or twisted constructs of "right/wrong" or "good/evil," inherently subjective or culturally relative, (1984) where 'the universal' is individually questioned by the lack of social justice or hypocrisy in the mythology of the ruling paradigm. Serial murder, serial rape and serial arson are all regarded as serial crimes, yet war is not regarded in any of these categories of ethics and legal fiction officially, creating a social unconscious through the cultural bias (compensated for by American Exceptionalism, Nazi Supremacy, or Bigotry = "more dehumanization, sell more corn chips, 'kill!'-'cry!'-'hate!'"), & artificial in-group/out-group constructs based in hate/ethnic-rivalry/multi-culturalism. The root of serial crimes, like war, is that they are produced by hatred and corruption explicitly for TV and the ratings and subsequent profit off of giant ponzi schemes, i.e. 'audience attention' in serial dramas in communities where boxed cereals are sold by multi-national corporations to promote war violence through dog food and murder mystery stories (Fordism); in order to validate the VIP oligarchs; as slaves to wealth production, command & control hierarchies; and "subjects" of hard/soft programmed violence & power who are actually robbed of "more"-genuine forms of subjectivity by the programmed, roles, stereotypes, "racially" profiled "human"-targets, witch-hunts, politicides, ethnic cleansings, and genocides of the "tribal warfare" form/front. From the perspective of the social unconscious, serial killers are individually re-enacting of the hero paradigm of the ruling narrative of the West in a mirrored or reversed ("evil")pattern, "aping" the bigoted or "bastardizing" the sexual violence semantically or symbolically in the same way (the cycle of abuse/violence) in which VIPs are validated & created as social/sexual "objects" (celebrity/royal 'others' -vs.- "VVIP" 'others') in the mass media officially/"Office-1!™-ly!!!", where the obvious conflicts between "action thriller" and ethnic cleanse, genocide, serial killers, terrorists, and the heroes of the ruling War/Wave/Military paradigm, with its bias ("freedom = lie") and hypocrisies equal to untold brutality, torture, rape, slaughter, mass-graves, etc. (colonialism/imperialism/"'Batman!'™") celebrated, force these productions of unconsciousness in collective in-group reasoning and logic (politics/management), which are then filled with the more thrilling, sensationalized, and salient (mirrored/reversed aspects of the Narcissus Narcosis w/ unconscious "charge" = attraction/magnetism).

Obamathon

The State propaganda is mirrored in the assumption of the behavior patterns by the serial killer and the serial-war pattern of hegemonic masculinity by the alienated deviant, where "it" is = 'ruling paradigm with engrained bias and bigotry'. As Obama stated:

"We are constantly creating mass murder for the serial dramas, for the ratings, for the attention, for the pleasure & revenge, the BDS&M, etc. through war!-war!!-war!!!, continual warfare, sterilized slaughter & continued escalation of hegemonic dominance, in the military/police, in business, and in sports. We love "short-shorts"™ at the mall, but after it is all over, "We" have done nothing at all (but build 'The Mall'™), none of the war crimes are acknowledged {'Geronimo's Skull!™ -vs.- "Kill them All..."™}, the "real" and "good" stands corrupted yet 'Victoria's Columbia!'™, a violently enforced ruling narrative that prohibits the recognition of the repressed violence and sexual terrorism (Rated-X /"Top Secret!"/Clandestine), which then becomes the aspects of the social unconscious, or the blind spots of bigotry, nationalism, fascism, sexism, exploitation, etc. in further war and social violence, individuals and groups failing to see "the other" as equal and valid in non-violence (bigotry), with the same rights and freedoms and "enjoyments" - humanity, therefore able to be killed, slaughtered, tortured, and vampire-assaulted - above the law, with impunity, without recourse - but by uniformed, "sworn" officials {"Royals"-ONLY!™}, in a post-apartheid system (immigration), all to establish the basic episteme of value in the {1st World/'Turd World'™} economic system of luxury, wealth, and middle class status validation for VVIPs in the ponzi..."

...which stands opposite to social justice and human rights ideals, yet provides the benchmark of the "good" in society, as in 'the killing in war as acts of (fascist/bigoted/"faggot-Ted") mass murder that are never acknowledged by the society as such {'The "JAH REAL!: Serial Killer"™'}, lead to the eruption of dysfunction in the repetition of further cycles of violence and abuse, which are "always" thrilling "WE, {Jah People}"' in the manner that they mask or represent the transferred fears of the social unconscious in demonic form, cut off and disassociated truths about self-hatred in individuals and the collective, that are present yet never part of the collective Self (GOD-iz-LUBs™) that is the State or Royal We constructed in the episteme, therefore broken or shattered into parts through further self/sexual-objectification as characteristic of the processes of sexual objectivization, wage slavery, commodification of subjectivity, and martial law (male:"killing for money" -vs.- female:"sex for money") represented in the ruling paradigm (Patpong) of the civilization(s) governed particularly by the commercial {'("retail marks"/hysterical anti-communist/"Not-See"-shills/5-star/High-Finance/Fortune/Indy-500)'} in pop culture or mass-media in the modern/post-modern socio-economic lower order of fascism. Nevertheless, it is still the "just war" theory vs. Christian non-violence at the heart of the debate in the Green Zone, the primal division or civil war in society between violence & non-violence (Gandhi/MLK) (love/hate:{violence/death=monopoly}: "production of wealth") found in the Jesus-Mary Magdelene relationship, i.e. the "cult" of "WHITE"™ settler colonialism and bigoted or imperial Euro-rooted values from the previous/legacy era of conquest, post-colonialism vs. Christ as "Logos" and de facto/actual/manifest/animist "real" as ruling narrative (bias), how twisted deception could go hand-in-hand with the creation of "Evil" in the white-washed/über-glossed/"white-face"-clown politics of the Judaeo-Christian-{Islamophobic} ultra-violent "Atomic Nazi!™" episteme of businessmen in suits, "starfish"-league, or how politicide on top of genocide could be forgotten down Sock-Hop!™ in a f'urry of lust w/ strippers erry'where tellin' the marks '"it"'s 'all, all right....'™''

"Everyday our youth is bombarded with images of glam, beauty, fashion, and ultra thin, airbrushed images through every type of media circuit. These standards of beauty are placed on our children at an incredibly young age and these images are nearly inescapable to every eye. Wherever one turns there are images, messages and billboards about what it is to be beautiful and how necessary it is to American society. Young woman and even young girls are acquiring a negative body image of themselves through the inundation of images that the media and society are putting out there. Not only are the television shows and magazines conveying the message that beauty is necessary but even commercials are mere advertisements for conformity. One study showed that one out of every 3.8 television commercials sent some sort of “attractiveness message” to the people who were watching (Myers et al., 1992). These messages are directed to the American consumer more often than not to sell a product but at the same time they are telling the consumer what is essential to be beautiful in American society...

Having a negative body image and self-objectifying does not only effect how someone views their own body and possibly lead to eating disorders but it can also drastically affect their cognitive abilities. When a person is in a state of self-objectification they acquire a self-conscious state in which they are continually monitoring their body to make it the most attractive view for others. In doing so, they interrupt the flow of consciousness and limit their mental resources. (Fredrickson, B.L., Roberts, T.-A., Noll, S.M., Quinn, D.M. & Twenge, J.M. 1998). The following comment by John Berger captures the idea of what it means for women to self-objectify:

'Someone else asks Davis if Beyoncé is a terrorist. The audience giggles, but the question is serious. During a panel discussion on liberating the black female body earlier this year, feminist activist bell hooks described Beyoncé as a terrorist and anti-feminist who was “colluding in the construction of herself as a slave”. In an emollient reply, Davis said that she liked the fact that Beyoncé had sampled Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s speech on feminism on her album. The following day, I ask Davis more about it. “Whatever problems I have with Beyoncé, I think it is so misleading and irresponsible to use that word in connection with her. It has been used to criminalise struggles for liberation. But we don’t use the word terror and terrorism to describe US history and the racism of the pre-civil rights era."'

"A woman must continually watch herself. She is almost continually accompanied by her own image of herself. Whilst she is walking across a room or whilst she is weeping at the death of her father, she can scarcely avoid envisioning herself walking or weeping... Her own sense of being in herself is supplanted by a sense of being appreciated as herself by another."

This may seem a bit extreme to some but this is what the objectification of a woman’s body is doing to people. It makes it nearly impossible to operate in everyday life without the concern of how one appears to others. In the study That Swimsuit becomes you done by Fredrickson, Roberts, Noll, Quinn, and Twenge they found that women and men self-objectified when in the swimsuit and for woman they found that it induced a feeling of shame and disgust. In this sense shame was described as a failure to meet moral ideals. The study also indicated that woman in the swimsuits experienced a state of self-objectification which lead to a decrease in math performance. (Fredrickson, B.L., Roberts, T.-A., Noll, S.M., Quinn, D.M. & Twenge, J.M. (1998). When reflecting on this outcome it causes one to wonder about the ramifications young girls are having in school due to the objectification of their bodies. This is a serious concern if young girls are not reaching their full academic potential due to an emphasis on their appearance and their body as opposed to their mind.

Trait self-objectification describes the differences in the degree to which people internalize observers’ perspectives on their physical selves in their everyday lives. (Gapinski, K.D., Brownell, K.D., & LaFrance, M. 2003). In the study done by Gapinski, Brownell and LaFrance they found that women with high levels of trait self-objectification may experience decreased levels of intrinsic motivation and self-efficacy.

This indicates that women who are more likely to internalize the views of others onto themselves may exhibit feelings of being less capable than the women who put less emphasis on appearance. This is a very disturbing thought, especially when it is related to children. If media images and societial pressures of being thin and beautiful are affecting the youth of out nation in such a severe way that there self worth and feelings of being capable are diminished there is a crucial problem. Many studies have shown that girls at a younger age are starting to feel the pressure to be thin and fit in with society’s image. One study found that 42% of first through third grade girls expressed a need to be thinner (Collins, 1991). Murnen, who has studied the effects that media, and ultra thin models have on young girls found that grade school girls, even as young as first grade feel that the culture is telling them that they should model themselves after celebrities.

Murnen’s research found that only 18% of girls were able to reject that image and it was these girls that had the highest self-esteem (Hellmich, N. 2006, September 26). So much attention is being paid to these celebrities, models, and objectified images that are on TV, people are not recognizing the affects that they are having on our children. Children are starting to feel the pressures of being thin and beautiful at an ever decreasing age. This is something that every person should be weary of because studies have shown that not only can aid in the development of eating disorders such as Anorexia Nervosa but it also lowers feelings of self-efficacy, interrupts the flow of conscious thought and effects the cognitive process.

So much attention is paid to a person’s physical appearance that they often overlook wonderful characteristics and aspects that a person has within them. It is crucially important to teach our children the importance of healthy eating and fitness because it makes for a better life, not because they will be viewed by others as more “attractive.”"

'What is becoming of Deleuze today, in the 21st century? To answer this question, it’s worth remembering some of Deleuze’s key ideas. There is, for example, his famous point that philosophy is the creation of concepts. Without the creation of new concepts, there can be no thinking with a difference, no line of flight in thought. Second, and closely related to this, Deleuze proposed that concepts are tools of analysis, not recognition.

'"DON JUAN THE SORCERER" - Carlos Castaneda interviewed by Theodore Roszak. Author of "The Teachings of Don Juan" discusses his experiences with hallucinogenic substances used under the guidance of his Yaqui Indian teacher, don Juan Matus. BROADCAST: KPFA, 30 Jan. 1969.(37 min.) BB2038 Pacifica Radio Archives.'
+ Carlos Castaneda Interview with Theodore Roszak (1969): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymylx-nrldc

True to his word, Deleuze left behind a vibrant conceptual apparatus — the “line of flight” is one of them — with some of his concepts (and the ones he coined with his friend and writing partner, Félix Guattari) taking the form of conceptual connectives: deterritorialization and reterritorialization, smooth space and striated space, the molar and the molecular, majoritarian and minoritarian. These are not to be confused with dualistic pairs. Rather each holds an immanent relation to the other, with the one contained within the other (where the majoritarian can turn into the minoritarian and vice versa). Indeed, Deleuze was a committed philosopher of immanence. One of his biggest contributions on this count was to resuscitate the concept of difference from the grip of identity politics. He developed a concept of difference that dismantled the hierarchical character of dualisms such as being/nonbeing, man/woman, human/animal, black/white, and so on. As a thinker of positive difference-in-itself (rather than the negative difference between, say, a man and a woman), Deleuze complicates how difference is thought, challenging along with it the status that nonbeing occupies in the Western philosophical tradition. Put simply, Deleuze affirms nonbeing. He pursues a positive nonbeing that is not understood within the negative parameters of lack or the absence of presence (a man is not what a woman lacks, and vice versa). Rather, he insists nonbeing is inherent to being. It is the creative potential of life (the life of a man and a woman) to exceed what currently is.

This subtle but nonetheless significant shift in thinking allowed Deleuze to develop a politically charged view of experience. He was less interested in understanding the conditions of possible experience and more intrigued by the conditions of actual experience. He referred to this as transcendental empiricism. The political implications of this idea are enormous. When the singularity of experience is freed from the abstract conditions of possible experience — when possible experience has become exhausted — then the diversity and productivity of experience is understood as arising out of concrete and contingent (actual) particulars, rather than universals that (in the traditional transcendentalist view) are believed to govern experience.

Deleuze’s transcendental empiricism is supremely helpful as we set out to understand and respond to the violence unfolding before us at the beginning of the 21st century. One can think here of mass species extinction, climate change, increasing inequity, poverty, natural resource depletion, pollution, epidemics, civil and inter-state warfare that no longer discriminates between combatants and noncombatants, rising nationalism and a pernicious intolerance toward the growing number of refugees throughout the world, and of course religious as well as other fundamentalisms: thought and the world appear to lie exhausted in the face of this depressing list. It is important we don’t raise our arms in despair and give up. We urgently need creative responses that will transform what is seemingly hopeless into something hopeful. In this way, the transformative potential of reality is a transcendental operation. Transcendental empiricism makes empirical reality other than what it currently is. It is not outside of the realm of experience; rather, it is the differential operation underlying all experience.

If the rest of the 21st century is going to be different, we have to create alternatives. Problematizing what currently exists so as to break with habit is an exercise in transcendental empiricism. This is not merely a practical exercise consisting of policy changes, developing new technologies, introducing more social and environmental services, passing new legislation, and producing more transparent forms of governance, to name a few. We are also facing a theoretical, philosophical — conceptual — challenge, to pursue the transcendental, creative, and differential conditions of reality. The operation of violence, its modes of legitimation, and the imbrication of violence as part of everyday life demand clear-headed descriptions and analysis, if we are to really break with habitual ways of thinking and acting in response to the challenges societies face. This will help buffer practical responses from reinstating the very problem they are designed to combat.

In asking how a practice may enhance or diminish a being’s capacity or power to act, Deleuze was intrigued by the problem of autonomy. How are the flows of life — bodies, commodities, money, finance, matter, ideas, language — socially structured and unstructured (“coded” and “decoded,” in Deleuze and Guattari’s language)? What kinds of practices and forms of agency do such structuring and unstructuring produce? In the service of what? However, if philosophy is the practice of creating concepts, then the job of the philosopher cannot end at the level of critique. The current situation demands that new concepts are created. But make no mistake: as new concepts are put to work, they don’t explain contemporary practices and experiences — it is the concepts themselves that require explanation. That is, one must explain (transcendentally) the conditions that give rise to new concepts. And it is through this process that philosophers grapple with the potential of actual experience (empiricism) to create a difference.'

Old Sarge: "All right you Limey has-been I'm going to say it country simple. You have been taken over like a Banana Republic. Your royal family is nothing but a holograph picture projected by the CIA. What is its purpose Y Well what is the purpose of the Pope for you Catholics good and bad standing with John 23 like a good soldier in the presence of your captain. Any way you slice it it's a grovel operation the way we like to see them I mean what we are doing while the Pope and the other Holies keep the marks para¬lyzed with grovel rays is one of mysteries you cannot understand the mercy of God we don't intend to be here when this shithouse goes up maybe I'm talking too much about private things family matters you might say and that's what we call the good old CIA the Family. When the prodigal son creeps back disillu-sioned from Peking.

Information known.

Expel barbarian.

Well the Family will forgive him if he is sincere in his hear on a lie detector . . .

"Well we're going to take you back."

The old ham fixes him with blue eyes like steel in sunlight

"Just don't ever let us down again."

From here to eternity the old game of war. Where would the Family be without it? So we can whittle off a little something to keep the royal family projected in Limey Land can't we now? So the Queen needs more money? Well humm call a story conference . . . Just how are we slanting this B.J.?"

B.J. (Doodling muscle boys) . . . "Nothing new. Just keep it going. They do need more money other¬wise they will go down in the same spiral as everybody else and they wouldn't be the royal family any more could wind up in a semidetached in Darlington. They are supposed to be a supernatural family religious figures in fact and the more potent in that they are not acknowledged as such. Just ask an upper-class Eng¬lish about the royal family and he goes all huffy and vague

"It's not important . . ."

"Who cares about Philip."

"Can't stand that chap Tony."

"But you want the royal family to continue as such?"

(B.J. bulges a jockstrap)

"Well uh yes we are a monarchy . . . excuse me …”

"What about this million a year?"

"We're all together in this . . . couldn't abolish ti¬tles and keep the royal family . . . We've had to take cuts . . . Why shouldn't they take a cut too . . . "

Mutiny in the ranks? . . .(He doodles a boy pealing off plastic tits) It could come to that . . . He doodles a boy looking at another boy's ass. A light bulb attached to his head lights up) . . . So why not put the royal family in a Darlington semidetached on a middle-class income and let them prove themselves in a TV serial . . .

Philip and the Queen are doing all right. She is known as Queen to all the nabors where she runs a small grocery shop. Every customer receives the same gracious smile and quick inquiry as to the family she is good at remembering things like that and keeping a line moving at the same time she learned that shaking millions of hands. Philip sells ecology equipment to factories . . . Good at his work and believes in it . . . strong middle-class message there Charles is a successful pop singer. Why they all get knighted in the end one way or another and the wind-up is back in Buckingham stronger than ever . . .

CIA Black: "Don't you think there is some limit somewhere to what people will stand still for? Suppose the ecology equipment doesn't work? Suppose the Queen's gracious smile is reserved for her white customers she has eyes for Enoch Powell and flying saucers . . . Suppose Bonny Prince Charlie . . ."

"For Chrisakes we're building them up not down . . . the Family . . ."

"All right call in the special effects boys and give them supernatural powers . . ."

"Never go too far in any direction is the basic rule on which Limey Land is built. The Queen stabilizes the whole sinking shithouse . . ."

"I tell you anything that is not going forward is going out . . . You know what we can do with special effects and electric brain stimulation . . . Some joker gets out of line we press a button and he shits in his pants at sight of her. That at least would be a step in some direction . . ."

"For Godsake not at this point. If the Queen tries to grab more than she's got imagewise she will lose it all . . . uh I mean we will . . . All the others are hopeless . . . Any of you jokers like to try propping up the queen of Denmark? I say leave it just where it is. It will stagger on for another five or ten years and that's enough. We get smart at this point and the English Republican Party will jump out at us . . ."

ERP ERP ERP:

"The Queen is an alien symbol basically Germanic in Origin. The Queen is also a white symbol. The White Goddess in fact. Young people want that? Black people want that? Who wants a grovel symbol? Those who need such symbols to keep positions of wealth and privilege. Look at them. Look at Jennifer's Diary . . ."

"I mean ERP could be dangerous."

"That's right. We got a good strong thing here why muck about with it?"

"Why the whole stinking thing could blow up in our faces . . ."

"Brings on my ulcers to think about it . . .”

"We could organize ERP . . ."

"That way we'd be ready to jump in either direction . . . "

"The word that made a man out of an ape and killed the ape in the process keeps man an animal the way we like to see him. And the Queen is just another prop to hold up the word. You all know what we can do with the word. Talk about the power in an atom. All hate all fear all pain all death all sex is in the word. The word was a killer virus once. It could become a killer virus again. The word is too hot to handle so we sit on our ass waiting for the pension. But somebody is going to pick up that virus and use it . . . Virus B-23 . . ."

"Aw we got the Shines cooled back with Che Guevara in a 19th-century set . . .”

“Is that right? And you got the Tiddlywinks cooled too? You can cool anybody else who gets ideas? You going to cool this powder keg with your moth-eaten Queen? I tell you anybody could turn it loose. You all know how basically simple it is . . . Sex word and image cut in with death word and image . . ."

'The youth rebellion is a worldwide phenomenon that has not been seen before in history. I don't believe they will calm down and be ad execs at thirty as the establishment would like to believe. Millions of young people all over the world are fed up with shallow unworthy authority running on a platform of bullshit. There are five questions that any platform in America must answer not with hot air but with change on a basic level.'
+ The Best of Quagmire (2013): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzyUjTpZIrw

1. Vietnam: 'As I recollect the French were in there quite some years and finally pulled out to repeat the same mistake in Algeria. History tells us this is a war that cannot be won. Perhaps it is not intended to be won but merely as provocation and pretext to start a war with Red China. Looks like some folks figure the only answer to this mess is blow the set up and start over. May have happened several times before what we call, history going back about 10,000 years and the human actor being about 500,000 years on set, give a little take a little, so what was he doing for the 480,000 years unaccounted for? If we have come from stone axes to nuclear weapons in ten thousand years this may well have happened before. Brion Gysin has put forward the theory that a nuclear disaster in what is now the Gobi desert destroyed the civilization that had made such a disaster possible and incidentally gave rise to what he terms "Albino freaks", namely the white race. Any case if we don't want to see the set go America should get out of Vietnam and reach an immediate agreement with Red China.

2. Alienated youth: The only establishment that is supported by its young people is Red China. And that is why the State Department does not want Americans to go there. They do not want Americans to realize that any establishment offering young people anything at all will get their support. Because the western establishments are not offering anything. They have nothing to declare but their bad intentions. Let them come all the way out in the open with their bad intentions, declare a Secret Service overwhelming majority, and elect a purple-assed baboon to the Presidency. At this dark hour in the history of the penny arcade, Wednesday troubling all our hearts, the aggressive Southern ape suh fought for you in the perilous Kon-Tiki Room of the Sheraton.

3. Black Power: Find out what they want and give it to them. All the signs that mean anything indicate that the blacks were the original inhabitants of this planet. So who has a better right to it?

4. Our police and judicial system: What would happen if all the cotton-picking, stupid-assed, bible-belt laws passed by bourbon-soaked state legislators were actually enforced together with all federal and city laws? If every businessman who chiseled on his income tax by one dollar was caught and jailed? If every drug offender was caught and jailed? If every violator of all the laws penalizing sex acts between consenting adults in private was caught and jailed? How many people would be in jail? I think 30,000,000 is a very conservative estimate. And how many cops would it take to detect and arrest these criminals? And how many guards to keep them confined? And how many judges parole officers and court personnel to process them? And how much money would this cost?

Fix yourself on 30,000,000 violators in vast internee camps all united to scream with the inflexible authority of one big mouth. "We want gymnasiums! Libraries! Swimming pools! We want golf courses! Country clubs! Theaters!"

And with every concession they scream for MORE! MORE! MORE!

"The internee delegation in a meeting with the President today demanded as a prerequisite for any talks the 'immediate and unconditional removal of the so-called guards.' "

Senator Bradly rose in the Senate to question the wisdom of setting up what he termed "a separate state of dubious loyalty at the very core of our nation.

"We want tanks! Planes! Submarines!”

"An ominous atmosphere smogged the capital today as peace talks with the internee delegation bogged down.”

"We want a space program! We want an atom bomb!"

“The number of internees is swelling ominously . . . forty million . . . fifty million . . . sixty million . . . 'America is a thin shell around a pulsing core of sullen violators.' ”

"Today the internees exploded their first atom bomb described as ‘a low yield nuclear device.' ”

“It may be low yield but it's right on our back porch" said Senator Bradly plaintively.

"Today the internees signed a mutual assistance pact with Red China."

As regards our judicial system there are three alternatives:

A. Total enforcement. Is either of our distinguished candidates for the Presidency prepared to support the computerized police terror that such enforcement would entail?

B. An admission that the judicial system is a farce and the laws not really intended to be enforced except in a haphazard sporadic fashion. Is either candidate prepared to make such an admission?

C. Get some bulldozers in here and clean out all this garbage and let no state saloon reel to his drunken feet and start braying about State rights. Is either candidate prepared to advocate the only sensible alternative?

5. The disappearing dollar: 1959 Minutes To Go: "I'm absolutely weak I can only just totter home the dollar has collapsed." Figuring ten years time lag the dollar should collapse in 1969. There is something wrong with the whole concept of money. It takes always more and more to buy less and less. Money is like junk. A dose that fixes on Monday won't fix on Friday. We are being swept with vertiginous speed into a worldwide inflation comparable to what happened in Germany after World War I. The rich are desperately stock piling gold, diamonds, antiques, paintings, medicines food, liquor, tools and weapons. Any platform that doe not propose the basic changes necessary to correct this glaring failures is a farce. What is happening in America today is something that has never happened before in recorded history: Total confrontation. The lies are obvious. The machinery is laid bare. All American are being shoved by the deadweight of a broken control machine right in front of each other's faces. Like it or not they cannot choose but see and hear each other. How many Americans will survive a total confront?'

"Billy Pilgrim says now that this really is the way he is going to die, too. As a time-traveler, he has seen his own death many times, has described it to a tape recorder. The tape is locked up with his will and some other valuables in his safe-deposit box at the Ilium Merchants National Bank and Trust, he says.

I, Billy Pilgrim, the tape begins, will die, have died and always will die on February thirteenth, 1976. At the time of his death, he says, he is in Chicago to address a large crowd on the subject of flying saucers and the true nature of time. His home is still in Ilium. He has had to cross three international boundaries in order to reach Chicago. The United States of America has been Balkanized, has been divided into twenty petty nations so that it will never again be a threat to world peace. Chicago has been hydrogen-bombed by Angry Chinamen. So it goes. It is all brand new. Billy is speaking before a capacity audience in a baseball park, which is covered by a geodesic dome. The flag of the country is behind him. It is a Hereford Bull on a field of green. Billy predicts his own death within an hour. He laughed about it, invites the crowd to laugh with him. 'It is high time I was dead..' he says. 'Many years ago.' he said, 'a certain man promised to have me killed. He is an old man now, living not far from here. He has read all the publicity associated with my appearance in your fair city. He is insane. Tonight he will keep his promise.' There are protests from the crowd. Billy Pilgrim rebukes them. 'If you protest, if you think that death is a terrible thing, then you have not understood a word I've said.' Now he closes his speech as he closes every speech with these words: 'Farewell, hello, farewell, hello.' There are police around him as he leaves the stage. They are there to protect him from the crush of popularity. No threats on his life have been made since 1945. The police offer to stay with him. They are floridly willing to stand in a circle around him all night, with their zap guns drawn. 'No, no,' says Billy serenely. 'It is time for you to go home to your wives and children, and it is time for me to be dead for a little while-and then live again.' At that moment, Billy's high forehead is in the cross hairs of a high-powered laser gun. It is aimed at him from the darkened press box. In the next moment, Billy Pilgrim is dead. So it goes. So Billy experiences death for a while. It is simply violet light and a hum. There isn't anybody else there. Not even Billy Pilgrim is there."

Over the years, people I've met have often asked me what I'm working on, and I've usually replied that the main thing was a book about Dresden.
I said that to Harrison Starr, the movie-maker, one time, and he raised his eyebrows and inquired, 'Is it an anti-war book?'
'Yes,' I said. 'I guess.'
'You know what I say to people when I hear they're writing anti-war books?'
'No. What do you say, Harrison Starr?'
'I say, "Why don't you write an anti-glacier book instead?"'
What he meant, of course, was that there would always be wars, that they were as easy to stop as glaciers. I believe that too.

Billy expected the Tralfamadorians to be baffled and alarmed by all the wars and other forms of murder on Earth. He expected them to fear that the Earthling combination of ferocity and spectacular weaponry might eventually destroy part or maybe all of the innocent Universe. Science fiction had led him to expect that. But the subject of war never came up until Billy brought it up himself. Somebody in the zoo crowd asked him through the lecturer what the most valuable thing he had learned on Tralfamadore was so far, and Billy replied, 'How the inhabitants of a whole planet can live in peace I As you know, I am from a planet that has been engaged in senseless slaughter since the beginning of time....

Billy felt that he had spoken soaringly. He was baffled when he saw the Tralfamadorians close their little hands on their eyes. He knew from past experience what this meant: He was being stupid.

'Would-would you mind telling me,' he said to the guide, much deflated, 'what was so stupid about that?'
'We know how the Universe ends,' said the guide, 'and Earth has nothing to do with it, except that it gets wiped out, too.'
'How-how does the Universe end?' said Billy.
'We blow it up, experimenting with new fuels for our flying saucers. A Tralfamadorian test pilot presses a starter button, and the whole Universe disappears.' So it goes.

"If You know this," said Billy, 'isn't there some way you can prevent it? Can't you keep the pilot from pressing the button?'
'He has always pressed it, and he always will. We always let him and we always will let him. The moment is structured that way.'

'So,' said Billy gropingly, I suppose that the idea of, preventing war on Earth is stupid, too. '
'Of course.'
'But you do have a peaceful planet here.'
'Today we do. On other days we have wars as horrible as any you've ever seen or read about. There isn't anything we can do about them, so we simply don't look at them. We ignore them. We spend eternity looking at pleasant moments-like today at the zoo. Isn't this a nice moment?'
'Yes.'
'That's one thing Earthlings might learn to do, if they tried hard enough: Ignore the awful times, and concentrate on the good ones.'
'Um,' said Billy Pilgrim.

'On August 6 the U.S. dropped a uranium gun-type atomic bomb (Little Boy) on Hiroshima. American President Harry S. Truman called for Japan's surrender 16 hours later, warning them to "expect a rain of ruin from the air, the like of which has never been seen on this earth." Three days later, on August 9, the U.S. dropped a plutonium implosion-type bomb (Fat Man) on the city of Nagasaki. Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects of the atomic bombings killed 90,000–146,000+/-1 people in Hiroshima and 39,000–80,000+/-1 in Nagasaki; roughly half of the deaths in each city occurred on the first day. During the following months, large numbers died from the effect of burns, radiation sickness, and other injuries, compounded by illness and malnutrition.'

'In four raids between 13 and 15 February 1945, 722 heavy bombers of the British Royal Air Force (RAF) and 527 of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) dropped more than 3,900 tons of high-explosive bombs and incendiary devices on the city. The bombing and the resulting firestorm destroyed over 1,600 acres (6.5 km2) of the city centre. An estimated 22,700+/-1 to 25,000+/-1 people were killed, plus maybe also some animals, insects, & plants that were scattered among the rubble by happenstance or as enemy non-combatants.'

Angulimala

Angulimala (Pāli: "finger necklace/garland"; Sinhala: අංගුලිමාල, Chinese: 央掘魔羅): "a ruthless serial killer who killed 999 people and attained enlightenment in a single human life." --- # Note: The 1000th victim of Angulimala was prophesied to be either a Buddha or his mother, an act of killing that would have lead to damnation to the deepest hells on top of the other crimes/"sins"... which can be extended as a corollary for any act of organized political killing related to war. How Angulimala as bodhisattva/bhiksu/penitent was able to overcome these actions and karmas and still attain perfect enlightenment in a single life has parallels to the "Jesus" (Isa) story or example (forgiveness/hypocrisy/"max-plank" + "get out of jail free" cards) & teaching (miraculous/sincerity/karma), but the Vajrayana aspects of Angulimala's life & practice (i.e. "bij" mantra & dharani) are not well documented or known contemporaneously in recorded Buddhist histories.

'According to the sutta and commentarial texts, omens seen at the time of Angulimala's birth (the flashing of weapons and the appearance of the 'constellation of thieves' in the sky) indicated that Angulimala would become a robber. Angulimala's father, the Brahmin chaplain to the king of Kosala, named him Ahimsaka ("the harmless one" - derived from the Sanskrit and Pali word Ahimsa), as an attempt to deter the dark fate predicted at his birth (Pad indicates that he was initially named Himsaka ("the harmful one"), but that the name was later changed). Ahimsaka was sent to Taxila to study under a well-known Brahmin guru. There he excelled in his studies and became the teacher's favourite student, enjoying special privileges in his teacher's house. However, the other students grew jealous of Ahimsaka's speedy progress and sought to turn his master against him. To that end, they made it seem as though Ahimsaka had seduced the master's wife and boasted that he was wiser than the guru. Unwilling or unable to attack Ahimsaka directly (Pad states that Ahimsaka was as "strong as seven elephants", while Ps states that the teacher worried that his business would suffer if he was found to have murdered a student), the teacher said that Ahimsaka's training was complete, but that he must provide the traditional final gift offered to a guru before the teacher would grant his approval. As his payment, the teacher demanded 1,000 fingers, each taken from a different victim, thinking that Angulimala would be killed in the course of seeking this grisly prize (Pad states that Angulimala was required to fetch 1,000 fingers from right hands, seemingly unaware that this could be achieved by killing 200 people. Ps states, even more strangely, that he was told to "kill a thousand legs", and gathered fingers only as an aid to keeping an accurate count). Sources indicate that one of his motivations may have been the unquestioning obedience to the guru - an echo of the higher principles governing his earlier life. But tradition reports that it was probably his innate disposition to violence. In his previous life, he was a Yakkha - a man-eating spirit with superhuman strength. The guru's instructions may have also aroused a strange attraction for killing, or could be seen as a challenge to his manly prowess. It was reported that in all his past lives, two traits were prominent: his physical strength and his lack of compassion. It is also suggested that he was in fact cast out of his Guru's house, branding him an outcast among Brahmins. Being unable to find acceptance anywhere, he turned to brigandry, murdering pilgrims and traders passing through the wilderness, and collecting a finger each from their right hands... Villagers petitioned the king of Kosala, who vowed to hunt down Angulimala. Fearing for her son's life, Angulimala's mother set out to find him and warn him of the king's intent. The Buddha perceived with his "divine eye" (faculty of clairvoyance) that Angulimala had slain 999 victims, and was desperately seeking a thousandth. If the Buddha encountered Angulimala that day, he would become a monk and subsequently attain Nirvana. If Angulimala encountered his mother instead, he would slay her as his thousandth victim and fall into hell for millennia as a matricide. The Buddha set off to intercept Angulimala, despite being warned by the people of the village in which he was staying. On the road through the forest of Kosala, Angulimala first saw his mother who came to warn him of the impending arrival of the kings' army. Angulimala, after some deliberation, decided to make her his 1000th victim. But then when Buddha also arrived, he chose to kill him instead. He drew his sword, and started running towards the Buddha. But although Angulimala was running as fast as he could, he couldn't catch up with the Buddha who was walking calmly. "The Blessed One willed a feat of psychic power such that Angulimala, though running with all his might, could not catch up with the Blessed One walking at normal pace" (MN 86, translation from Thanissaro Bhikkhu). This bewildered Angulimala so much that he called to the Buddha to stop. The Buddha said that he himself had already stopped, and that it was Angulimala who should stop. Angulimala asked for further explanation, after which the Buddha said that he had stopped harming living beings, and that Angulimala was still harming and hurting living beings. After hearing this, Angulimala changed his ways, vowed to cease his life as a brigand and joined the Buddhist order. To the Theravada and Mahayana, Angulimala's story serves as an example that even the worst of people can undo the faults in their beings and return to the right path."

"Great king, suppose you were to see Angulimala with his hair & beard shaved off, wearing the ochre robe, having gone forth from the home life into homelessness, refraining from killing living beings, refraining from taking what is not given, refraining from telling lies, living the holy life on one meal a day, virtuous & of fine character: what would you do to him?"

"We would bow down to him, lord, or rise up to greet him, or offer him a seat, or offer him robes, almsfood, lodgings, or medicinal requisites for curing illness; or we would arrange a lawful guard, protection, & defense. But how could there be such virtue & restraint in an unvirtuous, evil character?"

Now at that time Ven. Angulimala was sitting not far from the Blessed One. So the Blessed One, pointing with his right arm, said to King Pasenadi Kosala, "That, great king, is Angulimala." Then King Pasenadi Kosala was frightened, terrified, his hair standing on end. So the Blessed One, sensing the king's fear & hair-raising awe, said to him, "Don't be afraid, great king. Don't be afraid. He poses no danger to you."

Then the king's fear, his terror, his hair-standing-on-end subsided... Ven. Angulimala, early in the morning, having put on his robes and carrying his outer robe & bowl, went into Savatthi for alms. Now at that time a clod thrown by one person hit Ven. Angulimala on the body, a stone thrown by another person hit him on the body, and a potsherd thrown by still another person hit him on the body. So Ven. Angulimala — his head broken open and dripping with blood, his bowl broken, and his outer robe ripped to shreds — went to the Blessed One. The Blessed One saw him coming from afar and on seeing him said to him: "Bear with it, brahman! Bear with it! The fruit of the kamma that would have burned you in hell for many years, many hundreds of years, many thousands of years, you are now experiencing in the here-&-now!"

Then Ven. Angulimala, having gone alone into seclusion, experienced the bliss of release. At that time he exclaimed:

Who once was heedless,
but later is not,
brightens the world
like the moon set free from a cloud.

His evil-done deed
is replaced with skillfulness:
he brightens the world
like the moon set free from a cloud.

Whatever young monk
devotes himself
to the Buddha's bidding:
he brightens the world
like the moon set free from a cloud.

May even my enemies
hear talk of the Dhamma.
May even my enemies
devote themselves
to the Buddha's bidding.
May even my enemies
associate with those people
who — peaceful, good —
get others to accept the Dhamma.
May even my enemies
hear the Dhamma time & again
from those who advise endurance,
forbearance,
who praise non-opposition,
and may they follow it.

For surely he wouldn't harm me,
or anyone else;
he would attain the foremost peace,
would protect the feeble & firm.

Irrigators guide the water.
Fletchers shape the arrow shaft.
Carpenters shape the wood.
The wise control
themselves.

Some tame with a blunt stick,
with hooks, & with whips
But without blunt or bladed weapons
I was tamed by the one who is Such.

"Doer of No Harm" is my name,
but I used to be a doer of harm.
Today I am true to my name,
for I harm no one at all.

A bandit
I used to be,
renowned as Angulimala.
Swept along by a great flood,
I went to the Buddha as refuge.

Bloody-handed
I used to be,
renowned as Angulimala.
See my going for refuge!
Uprooted is [craving],
the guide to becoming.

Having done the type of kamma
that would lead to many
bad destinations,
touched by the fruit of [that] kamma,
unindebted, I eat my food.

They're addicted to heedlessness
— dullards, fools —
while one who is wise
cherishes heedfulness
as his highest wealth.

Don't give way to heedlessness
or to intimacy
with sensual delight —
for a heedful person,
absorbed in jhana,
attains an abundant bliss.
