Once to every man and nation, comes the moment to decide,
In the strife of truth with falsehood, for the good or evil side;
Some great cause, some great decision, offering each the bloom or blight,
And the choice goes by forever, ’twixt that darkness and that light. . .

Then to side with truth is noble, when we share her wretched crust,
Ere her cause bring fame and profit, and ’tis prosperous to be just;
Then it is the brave man chooses while the coward stands aside,
Till the multitude make virtue of the faith they had denied.

Though the cause of evil prosper, yet the truth alone is strong;
Though her portion be the scaffold, and upon the throne be wrong;
Yet that scaffold sways the future, and behind the dim unknown,
Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above His own.

James Russell Lowell

    In an era when a fascist, militarist, imperialist cabal has seized all systems of control (political, economic, military, intelligence, propaganda 1)   in America and throughout the world and is systematically murdering the working class, you are either working against this evil system or you are essentially a collaborator.

    This essay's purpose is to assist you as a serious reader to:
  • Realize--become aware of and acknowledge--that America has become a fascist nation and that most Americans are now fascist collaborators

  • Identify yourself as currently working against the "evil side," as Lowell expressed it in his poem above, or recognize yourself as consciously or inadvertently siding with falsehood against truth, struggling against the light and assisting the darkness--in other words, being a collaborator with fascism.

  • Become a non-collaborator--an anti-fascist struggling against murder and corruption

  • Understand specific, practical ways you can become an anti-fascist in this current war of truth against falsehood and good against evil
    In a society such as Nazi Germany or Vichy France in the 1930s and -40s--or America in the twenty-first century--it's possible for people to be collaborators with Fascism while deluding themselves that they are "common, decent citizens" in a nation at war.

"I don't think we, the American people, deserved what happened [9/11]. Nor do we deserve the sort of governments we have had over the last 40 years. Our governments have brought this upon us by their actions all over the world."

Gore Vidal, interview with the Los Angeles Weekly, July 5 - 11, 2002


America Has Become A Fascist Nation and Most Americans Are Now Fascist Collaborators

"And Upon The Throne Be Wrong"



    As you examine the images above, wake up to what has happened to America:
  • In the 1930s and 40s, its capitalist rulers created the Nazi regime, by funding and supporting it.

  • In 1945, its insane rulers annihilated hundreds of thousands of Japanese with atomic bombs.

  • Beginning in the 1960s, its fascist rulers orchestrated a plan of deindustrializing and outsourcing jobs to cheap labor havens to destroy the American working class.

  • In 1973, its criminal rulers assassinated a standing President--John F. Kennedy.

  • In 2000, its fascist rulers perpetrated a coup d'etat , destroying the right of Americans to elect their own president: placing George W. Bush into the presidency when he had lost the election.

  • In 2001, its criminal rulers committed the atrocity of a false-flag attack which destroyed the twin towers in Manhattan, murdering 2,996 persons, and initiating an era of perpetual, never-ending "war against terrorism" (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, Yemen, etc.).

  • In 2007-2008, its fascist rulers perpetrated financial crimes which threatened the dissolution of the American and world economy, foisting on the American worker-taxpayer a continuing bailout for "too big to fail" criminal banksters and financial institutions.

  • Beginning in 2009, its criminal rulers are rigging all financial markets: bonds, stocks, commodities, etc.

  • In 2014, its insane rulers created a fascist regime in Ukraine to further their imperialist, militarist aims.

  • This is a partial list of only a few of the atrocities these evil persons have perpetrated.

"A clique of U.S. industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy.

"Certain American industrialists had a great deal to do with bringing fascist regimes into being in both Germany and Italy. They extended aid to help Fascism occupy the seat of power, and they are helping to keep it there."

William E. Dodd, U.S. Ambassador to Germany, 1937, in George Seldes, Facts and Fascism, p. 122


Shared Guilt for Capitalist Fascism


As the federal Department of Justice and specific judges are destroying justice today, these judges destroyed justice in Nazi Germany

The pretense of ignorance does not exonerate from guilt

We must stand for justice, truth, and the value of a single human being

"To ignore evil is to become an accomplice to it."

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) This statement was made just
a few short months before he was assassinated by the American fascist cabal.


German Collaborators in the 1930s and American Collaborators In the Twenty-First Century


Germans in the 1930s delusively thought they were free
and contemporary Americans delusively think they are free.
Milton Mayer's book, They Thought They Were Free, concerns Germans still living after World War II who had been members of the Nazi Party. Mayer came to know them and studied their lives and attitudes.

     "As we know Nazism, it was a naked, total tyranny which degraded its adherents and enslaved its opponents and adherents alike; terrorism and terror in daily life, private and public; brute personal and mob injustice at every level of association . . .

     "These nine ordinary Germans [who lived in Nazi Germany] knew it otherwise, and they still know it otherwise.

      "An autocracy? [they say] Yes, of course . . . But a tyranny, as you Americans use the term? Nonsense."


What Happened to One German Collaborator With the Nazis
"The Reverend Martin Niemoller had personally welcomed the coming to power of the Nazis in 1933. In that year his autobiography, FROM U-BOAT TO PULPIT, had been published. The story of how this submarine commander in the First World War had become a prominent Protestant pastor was singled out for special praise in the Nazi press and became a best seller. To Pastor Niemoller, as to many a Protestant clergyman, the fourteen years of the Republic had been, as he said, 'years of darkness' and at the close of his autobiography he added a note of satisfaction that Nazi revolution had finally triumphed and that it had brought about the "national revival" for which he himself had fought so long -- for a time in the free corps, from which so many Nazi leaders had come.

"He was soon to experience a terrible disillusionment.

"The Protestants in Germany, as in the United States, were a divided faith. Only a few -- some 150,000 out of forty-five million of them -- belonged to the various Free Churches such as the Baptists and Methodists. The rest belonged to twenty-eight Lutheran and Reformed Churches of which the largest was the Church of the Old Prussian Union, with eighteen million members.

"With the rise of National Socialism there came further divisions among the Protestants. The more fanatical Nazis among them organized in 1932 'The German Christians' Faith Movement' ...(which) ardently supported the Nazi doctrines of race and the leadership principle and wanted them applied to a Reich Church which would bring all Protestants into one all-embracing body. . .

"Opposed to the 'German Christians' was another minority group which called itself the 'Confessional Church.' It had about the same number of pastors and was eventually led by Niemoller. It opposed the Nazification of the Protestant churches, rejected the Nazi racial theories and denounced the anti-Christian doctrines of Rosenberg and other Nazi leaders. In between lay the majority of Protestants, who seemed too timid to join either of the two warring groups, who sat on the fence and eventually, for the most part, landed in the arms of Hitler, accepting his authority to intervene in church affairs and obeying his commands without open protest. . .

"By the beginning of 1934, the disillusioned Pastor Niemoller had become the guiding spirit of the minority resistance in both the 'Confessional Church' and the Pastors' Emergency League...On the first of July, 1937, Dr. Niemoller was arrested and confined to Moabit prison in Berlin. On June 27 he had preached to the congregation, which always overflowed his church at Dahlem, what was to be his last sermon in the Third Reich. As if he had a foreboding of what was to come he said, 'We have no more thought of using our own powers to escape the arm of the authorities than had the Apostles of old. No more are we ready to keep silent at man's behest when God commands us to speak. For it is, and must remain, the case that we must obey God rather than man.'

"After eight months in prison he was tried on March 2, 1938, before a Sondergericht, one of the 'Special Courts' set up by the Nazis to try offenders against the State, and though acquitted of the main charge of 'underhand attacks against the State' was fined two thousand marks and sentenced to seven months' imprisonment for 'abuse of the pulpit' and holding collections in his church. Since he had served more than this time, the court ordered his release, but he was seized by the Gestapo as he was leaving the courtroom, placed in 'protective custody' and confined in concentration camps, first at Sacchsenhausen and then at Dauchau, where he remained for seven years until liberated by Allied troops."

William Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich


The famous quote from Martin Niemoller:
"First they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the communists and I did not speak out because I was not a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak out for me."


"One of the world's most civilized peoples [Germans] had got into the clutches of this monstrous thing [Nazism], this lunatic's dream turned into reality and setting out to uproot and destroy every humane and decent influence among sixty millions of people. If you were a citizen of this land you had to submit and become its slave, to sweat and toil and bleed for it, to share all its vileness and its crimes, to let it take your children and distort their minds and make them into little monsters in its own image."

Upton Sinclair, Wide Is The Gate, 1943


Collaborators Create and Sustain Fascism?

    Both Germany and France were destroyed by fascism because their capitalist rulers collaborated with the Nazis. But fascism could not have continued had their citizens refused to remain complicit in the atrocities and outrages. After Germany, Japan, and Italy (the fascist axis) were defeated, both Germany and France pretended that their nations had not been complicit collaborators.

    After World War II, a "reconstituted Germany" tried to pretend that courageous dissidents had been the true Germans during the Nazi nightmare; persons such as the White Rose group, Colonel Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg, General Ludwig Beck, and the 77,000 German citizens who were killed for one or another form of resistance by Special Courts, courts martial, and the civil justice system.

     The text on the German Resistance Memorial in Berlin reads:

"You Did Not Bear The Shame, You Resisted, Sacrificing Your Life For Freedom, Justice and Honor."


"There were resisters and we do not intend to minimalize their actions, they often paid with their lives. But the shadow side of this small minority of brave opponents is the comprehensive pattern of social conformity, of active acceptance. . .

"Hitler's success in winning over the working class was due to a sophisticated reward system, that sufficient numbers of workers were seduced to neutralize resistance."

Adam LeBor and Roger Boyes, Surviving Hitler, 2000

    "In August 1944, when France was liberated, General Charles de Gaulle, recognised leader of the French forces, was asked to proclaim the restoration of the Republic. He refused: on the grounds that the Republic had never ceased to exist. What did he mean? He meant that Republican France, the 'true' France, had always existed--in the form of himself and the Resistance. Vichy was an abnormality, an aberration--it was 'not really France'.

"According to this history, the horrors inflicted on the French people had been the work of the Germans; Petain had worked hard to spare the French people from German excesses--he was the shield and de Gaulle had been the sword. The Resistance movements had incarnated the 'true' France and the mass of the population had been behind it. This is now known as the Gaullist Resistance myth. In the post-war years, it provided a comforting image of French wartime conduct at a time when national unity was vital to the reconstruction of the country. Intellectuals, journalists and filmmakers reinforced the myth and it went largely unchallenged until the 1970s.

"From the 1970s though, the myth began to crumble. Films such as Marcel Ophuls The Sorrow and The Pity showed the wartime French to have been selfish and attentiste--which means they preferred to 'wait and see' what would happen, rather than resist. In 1972, American historian Robert Paxton's book Vichy France: Old Guard and New Order, shattered the resistance myth for good. Based on research in French and German archives, Paxton showed that collaboration was not a policy imposed on France, but one that originated in France itself. Furthermore, Paxton concluded that the majority of French people did little to oppose Vichy; in fact, their very apathy had allowed the regime to remain in place. The resistance myth was thus turned on its head--the French had not been a nation of resisters but a nation of collaborators."

"'Fascism' is only the organized political expression of the structure of the average man's character, a structure that is confined neither to certain races or nations nor to certain parties, but is general and international. . . 'Fascism' is the basic emotional attitude of the suppressed man of our authoritarian machine civilization and its mechanistic-mystical conception of life."

Wilhelm Reich, The Mass Psychology of Fascism

    Most contemporary Americans--and other world-citizens--are so mindless and unaware that they do not comprehend that they are collaborators with the Capitalist Cabal and its fascist world dictatorship. The two young ladies depicted in the stories below are typical of the witless, oblivious persons the world over who have no inkling that they are collaborators with Capitalist Fascism.



Are You A Collaborator With Fascism?

    It is highly unlikely that you have escaped becoming a collaborator with fascism, whether consciously or inadvertently. Here are some questions, your answers to which will clearly indicate wither or not you are a collaborator with fascism:
  • Are you aware and do you routinely acknowledge to people that America has become a fascist, militarist, imperialist nation?

  • Do you find that this essay's representing America as a fascist state that perpetrates political, economic, and military atrocities seems somewhat extreme and over-the-top?

  • Are you doing anything to fight against the fascist, militarist, imperialist outrages--or are you merely turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to these obscenities?

"The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.

George Orwell


How We Must Fight Against Fascism

    Contemporary Americans and citizens worldwide are collaborating with global fascism. Without almost total complicity in their atrocities and outrages, the capitalist cabal could not continue to exist and operate.

    In a world dominated by capitalism, we can't avoid dealing with capitalist individuals and companies. But that doesn't mean that we must collaborate with their criminal policies and activities. It's incumbent on us to make it clear that we recognize and acknowledge the militarist, imperialist, genocidal outrages that are being perpetrated and that we stand on the side of anti-fascism.

    For example, when I was asked by the U.S. Army War College in 1993 to serve as chairman of their Artificial Intelligence department, I felt free to take that position because my stance in opposing militarism and imperialism was on record and I had explicitly indicated that I had studied artificial intelligence to help people understand that along with AI's positive usage, AI could be misused to manipulate people and program them toward specific goals.


"To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men."

Abraham Lincoln


    Today people think that doing nothing 2 does not constitute collaboration with the fascist state--whereas it does! Persons who criticize the capitalist-controlled political-economic system and expose its atrocities are thought by "normal people" (collaborators) to be disreputable extremists. The truth is that those who work with and for fascists and do nothing to expose and oppose them are actual collaborators.

    As in the American Civil War, today's new civil war against the fascist cabal that has seized control over our country divides families and creates strange comrades-in-arms.

    At this point in your reading of this essay, you should have determined whether you are acting as a collaborator with fascism--or not. Whatever your judgement of your situation, it's necessary now for you to act!

    Whoever you are and wherever you are, you must fight against the fascist cabal that is destroying our country. Whatever your physical, financial, or intellectual capabilities, you can make a significant contribution to the World Resistance Movement by helping to build cooperative commonwealth communities to replace the fascist capitalist imperium.


"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

Edmund Burke








Notes:

1 All mainstream information outlets--print, movies, television, radio, and Internet--are now, in essence, collaborators with the fascist cabal that has seized power worldwide and is murdering workers and attacking foreign nations to bring about regime change and insure huge profits for the death merchants: defense industry fascists.

2 "Doing nothing" includes those who delusively think that by "dropping out" or "living off the grid" they aren't collaborating with fascism. As Martin Luther King said: "He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."
