Commentary :: Occupy Boston
Occupy Boston 2
11 May 2013
The secession process could grow to include other states outside of New England, which together would be free to decide in future to create a reformed federal union to replace the current, irrevocably corrupt United States of America.

Americans are living under a hostile occupation in their own land, by their own government. Regime authorities openly declare the “homeland” a battlefield. The battle, waged by the federal government--a wholly-owned subsidiary of corporate America targets the American people, the ‘enemy:’ spied on, catalogued, check-pointed, ID’d, patted down, scanned, soon-to-be-droned, run out of their homes, set in gun sights, riddled in mass shootings, OK’d for arbitrary internment and execution, or blasted to oblivion in the midst of core unifying community events (a sophisticated, state-level style strategic targeting of solidarity). No place like home, you keep telling yourselves.

Eighteenth century Bostonians lived under a hostile occupation. The practice of troops entering and searching homes without warrants was one of the catalysts of the revolution, and resulted in the drafting of the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment--now a dead letter in a broken contract. The Boston Massacre was another spark, leading to the outbreak of the first revolutionary battles still commemorated there today on “Patriot’s Day.” This was the day of the bombing and military shakedown. A probable pre-emptive strike. It was all havoc and bloody mayhem. The mark of evil.

Boston was the cradle of the revolution, of American liberty, now an incongruous sounding phrase, under the New Order ® ...unless connoting corporate freedom to lawlessly dominate, control and reap the spoils. Today, lovers of personal liberty are an ‘extremist’ threat. Sometimes called the Athens of America, Boston also has probably the highest concentration of brain power per head in the US -- smart freedom-lovers. Send in the tanks! (News ticker: ‘DOW hits all-time high.’)

That said, it needs qualification: modern warfare has its up is down, Orwellian, psychological aspect--our heads are our Achilles heels. And so the jackbooted martial law lockdown was actually welcomed by glaze-eyed, banner waving types, attuned to the false flag ‘news movie’ puppet show, a military/police manhunt drama, for an immigrant bomber on the loose, who could have been easily found up to several nights after the bombing unperturbedly sleeping in his own bed, in his dorm room (confirmed-UMass). The glaring lack of open trials in all of these affairs underlines their nature as special operations, granted immunity from the light of public inquiry.

As terrorized Bostonians naturally looked to leadership in the unprecedented crisis, including full-on martial law, official pronouncements on the meaning of the attack were lacking. They had only a hometown sports hero stepping up to the plate, lending his endorsement to the media-driven, swiss cheese story line. This with peculiar conformity to a behaviorist, trauma-regression, stimulus-response model.... It was left to the star ballplayer to set the tone for the community’s response with his (coached?) "This is OUR #@! city" remark: an infantile, sandlot reaction along the lines of "It's MY ball!," yet well suited to invite regressive, internecine nipping in a traumatized population looking for scapegoats; a useful idiot’s play of the horrible event into a divisive focus on 'us and them,' native and immigrant camps (like home and away teams), deflecting attention from those charged to prevent attacks, now illegally rolling tanks into town, rousting frightened residents from their homes, shutting down the city, occupying the Common and constantly changing the contradictory story. Never mind that the sportsman is himself an immigrant. Hopefully, astute Bostonians would have noticed the hypocrisy, and not fallen for the base appeal to hate, which by virtue of whose interests it serves, tends to reinforce the overall impression of a stage-managed terror event, fitting a by now familiar pattern.

And then there were the amazing ‘coincidences’...The JFK library fire occurring around the same time as the downtown explosions, not officially part of the attack. This is the smoking WTC building 7 of the Boston bombing--not hit, but burning anyway. It’s been plausibly surmised that WTC 7 housed the likely command and control center for the 911 attack and as evidence of the conspiracy, had to be destroyed. In Boston, after contradictory official explanations of a bomb, then incendiary device, then fire, the City Fire Department later issued a conclusion that can only be called contemptuous of the concerned public: it would have been a fire, caused by “careless disposal of smoking materials” -- a cigarette? -- in an HVAC unit -- in a building showing evidence of blast damage -- ‘shattered windows’ (Boston Globe). At least two library employees were reported to have heard an explosion (Globe). Other damage was done, significantly, to the library’s archives, possibly destroying documentary evidence from one or another of the multiple Kennedy murders, in the 50th anniversary year of the most notorious of these, another patsy-fronted and sickening state-within-the-state crime, which seems to have set the precedent for the assassinations, attacks and bombings, etc. that have since followed.

Another incredible ‘coincidence’--landing gear debris from the 911 attack suddenly appears, having gone unnoticed for 12 years in New York City’s well-combed ground zero, one week following the Boston attack, “America’s second 911,” presumably as a reminder, to integrate the new outrage into the ‘war on terror’ narrative, giving this domestic repression operation -- a new Boston-massacre -- added-value as propaganda for the unfinished business of continuing foreign wars.

In a land of laws, we could expect the immediate public trial of the accused, surviving Boston bomber and a public inquiry into the brutal death, apparently in custody, of the other accused. As it happens, both are conveniently mute. The survivor has been cycled out of the news. Found sheltering in a boat, he may well fear burial at sea.

The first rule of self-defense is at least knowing the enemy. We’ve just seen once again their motto in action: Order through Chaos.

If an authority has broken its social contract with the people, violated its solemn oath to uphold that contract, trampled the rights of its citizens, would claim for itself the right to confine or assassinate them by executive fiat -- even as it tries to disarm them; engages in domestic terrorism and would call defending your life or liberty a crime (terrorism or sedition), then that authority is utterly tyrannical and unequivocally illegitimate and must be removed by whatever means necessary.

Starting Over

It’s time for New Englanders, true to their heritage, to defend their freedom, their children’s futures and their very lives; to rise to the occasion and lead the way towards breaking the cycle of violent repression within this hijacked Union. A way forward can already be discerned in the grassroots secessionist movement in the state of Vermont. Neighboring Quebec has a well-established secessionist Party (PQ), currently the governing Party in the province. This international stirring towards devolution (also appearing in several EU countries), to counter ever greater concentration of political and economic power (towards unaccountable corporate world government) could form the basis of a New England-wide Secessionist Movement and future political union -- with Quebec -- divorced from tyrannical federal control from Washington and Ottawa, its vassal. The goal would not be Balkanization but effective dissolution of the current, corporate-controlled federal power centers by the legal withdrawal of their subjects from the existing political framework. The secession process could grow to include other states outside of New England, which together would be free to decide in future to create a reformed federal union to replace the current, irrevocably corrupt United States of America.

I agree, let's do it.

I live in Vermont. Many of us wish to secede. I've always seen secession to be a New England wide movement, not just Vermont. I am glad to see someone else is thinking about this.
