George Carlin's Final Words To The World...





"There's a reason education SUCKS, and it's the same reason that it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It's never going to get any better, don't look for it, be happy with what you've got. Because the owners of this country don't want that. I'm talking about the REAL owners, now. The REAL owners, the BIG WEALTHY business interests that control things and make all the important decisions -- forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. YOU DON'T. You have no choice. You have OWNERS. They OWN YOU. They own EVERYTHING. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations; they've long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the State houses, the City Halls; they've got the judges in their back pockets, and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all the news and information you get to hear. They gotcha by the BALLS. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying -- lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want -- they want MORE for themselves and less for everybody else. But I'll tell you what they don't want. They DON'T want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that, that doesn't help them. That's against their interests. That's right. They don't want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they're getting FUCKED by system that threw them overboard 30 fuckin' years ago. They don't want that. You know what they want? They want OBEDIENT WORKERS. OBEDIENT WORKERS. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passably accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime, and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And now they're comin' for your SOCIAL SECURITY MONEY. They want your fuckin' retirement money. They want it BACK. So they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They'll get it. They'll get it ALL from you sooner or later -- 'cuz they OWN this fuckin' place. It's a big CLUB. And YOU AIN'T IN IT. You and I are NOT IN the big club. By the way, it's the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long, beating you over the in their media telling you what to believe -- what to think -- and what to buy. The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged. And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-workin people -- white collar, blue collar -- doesn't matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-workin people CONTINUE -- these are people of modest means -- continue to elect these RICH COCKSUCKERS who don't GIVE a fuck about them. They don't give a fuck about you, they don't GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOU. T HEY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU -- AT ALL. AT ALL. AT ALL. You know? And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care ... that's what the owners count on, the fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that's being jammed up their assholes every day. Because the owners of this country know the truth -- it's called the American Dream ... 'cuz you have to be asleep to believe it."

Its just like the movie The Matrix. There was another movie back in the 70's, where this guy would put on these glasses and see the world around him the way it really was. I think it was called They Live.

The mind control they use, I believe, is a type of gaslighting, or implausible deniability. Like in facebook memes where mothers are great, mothers are all good. It literally shuts us up, and its a slap in the face.

But everyone hates politicians, and that keeps the focus off what's really going on. Maybe the politicians are not the ones in charge.

q1605 said...

I think the movie the Matrix is very apropos to describe a group of people be it ACON's or N forums or cliquish blogs that seem to be dictated to by a Jim Jones type of group think. And once you have seen the reality behind narcs and other personality disordered folk you can never go back to the way you were. Who would want to? But you really have no idea where to go but forward and away from the thinking that has kept you mired down in the dysfunction.

Joan S said...

There seems to be at least one narc everywhere I go. Just last night I was working at our local food bank and there is one and I paid attention this time. I somehow detached myself from my emotions(fight or flight) and tried to logic this thing out. It was interesting. She looked at me directly in the face and I saw the hatred in her face. Then she could act all nice, then she would get nasty. I saw this for 3 hours I was there, and it looks friggin tiring. Exhausting really. for them to be always on the make for their "supply". She said hurtful things to others and I saw her enjoy it, even relief on her face, that "high" that they get. How does no one see this?

Oh, and I wasn't attacked by her. I somehow felt strong, it was strange. Do we get to this point in our recovery when we are not attacked by them anymore? That we can watch them "starving" and trying to extract supply elsewhere? I think that happened to me last night.

q1605 said...

There was an old Twilight zone starring Dick York where he threw a coin into a cigar box a kid at a newsstand had out to collect his pay and a quarter landed on it's edge and stood up straight in the air and it somehow gave him the ability to hear what people were thinking as he made it through the day. He used these new found powers to get a raise and stop a robbery plotted by one of his co-workers. After work he threw some more change in the box and knocked it over which took back the powers. The guy he stopped from robbing the bank had that same thought every day as some daydream fantasy and couldn't figure out how he did it. I don't know if this has anything to do with anything but your reference to "THEY LIVE" made me think of it.

Joan S said...

In that movie the main guy happened upon these glasses that saw what the world was. That everything was being run by aliens and the people were slaves. The movie was made in 1988. Its funny I just watched that movie just before my awakening and I must have watched it 10 times, it was talking to me and I couldn't get it so I played it again and again.

mulderfan said...

When we ACoNs "take the red pill" there's really no way to put the genie back in the bottle, even if we wanted to...God knows, I tried over and over to find a way. Bam, there you are with your eyes glued open just watching the circus monkeys doing the same damn thing over and over.
George has a much better way with words than I do. All I really have is Fuck 'em!

Five Hundred Pound Peep said...

JOHN TAYLOR GATTO He exposes the school system and how it is used for control and to keep the plebes in check. I've read every book the man has written. He has a website and more so google his name.

There's very few who seen through the "education" matrix. The secret of the matrix? Both the red and blue pill are poison. LOL Knock the pills out of Morpheus's hands and walk away. I didn't like their world where their brains were hooked up to these black tubes. The narcissistic trash I defriended and wrote about on my blog is one of the "useful idiots" bowing the bankers. Lost his house and everything but has been programmed to think poor people are scum even though he is poor. And those types vote accordingly.

I believe ACONs more then anyone else once they recover and get out, see through the delusions of society, how so much of it is a complete and utter scam. They don't like teachers who are too independent minded. I almost got drummed out of education college for that reason. The politicians are puppets for the controllers. Don't even think the president has top power. They do the stage show.

q1605 said...

I really think Carlin was on to something in his loud and ham fisted delivery. Down Here in Texas when George W was governor, he had his "no child left behind" garbage. It sounded good. But Teachers started "teaching to the test" That is, keeping their jobs were ultimately tied to the test scores and they focused more on the student doing well on the test rather than prepping them for college. I went back to school in the 90's (long before the bush's were anything but bankrupters of business's) and had to take high school math all over again to get through calculus and other higher math. I won't go so far to say there is a conspiracy to keep us all stupid but as I get older I see that the Bush family hustled their asses off to get family members in office and then proceeded to sell their influence to the highest bidder. They have concentrated their power and they have it in a death grip and they won't be letting go of it anytime soon. I think a one father and son is enough presidents from one family but I look for Jeb to be elected sometime in the future.

q1605 said...

Mulderfan, At this late date I look back on any frank conversation I ever had with my mother and shudder about the candid way we used to speak to one another. I always wondered how my ex-wife seemed to know what I was thinking about as fast as I thought it. There were many things I told her that could really lead to my undoing. At least in the midst of a divorce. And to top that off there is no way to tell how she twisted what I said before she blabbed it all to my STBX. I started to say that she was as good as my ex having a microphone in the room but a microphone doesn't lie or embellish.

mulderfan said...

When I was teaching, I was in the principal's office more than the kids were. Of course, I fought tooth and nail for my Special Ed kids to be treated fairly and with respect (something I always longed for). Last boss called me a "loose cannon" because I wouldn't conform...far too many teachers enjoy holding power over kids and using it to abuse them.

mulderfan said...

Same with my brother and father, Q. They know me so well it's easy for them to stick the knife in exactly the right spot before they twist it. Invariably the low-lifes go after my kid. That's what made me return the old man's last call...he attacked my kid.

Pandora Viltis said...

I love this. I'm the sole liberal in my family (my husband's side too) and I get looked at funny when I say things like more money should go into public education. Or that I think some concepts of socialism are worth looking at. I'm not big into politics because it seems like a losing battle, but I also know not to discuss mine with pretty much most people.

The wealthy are so invested in the staitus quo. It was confusing and alarming to watch my parents' beliefs shift as my father rose up the corporate ladder. I probably am part of the problem by not speaking out. I really do feel that if everyone had a decent education that so many issues would be resolved.

Bless George Carlin. One helluva guy.

q1605 said...

I was thinking about the conspiracy angle of this again. I don't think the rich see themselves as rich. They have such a different mind set than regular people and have breathed the rarefied air so long that they must think they it's part of god's plan. If god had wanted you to have more you would have it and since you don't I guess he wants me to. The gulf between the haves and have's not's has existed so long that it has crept into everyone's thinking and saturated people to only think in terms of who they surround themselves with. I am a have so that's who I hang with........you are a have not so you hang with other have not people. I have an example of the intractable nature in all this. When I went back to college I started cleaning offices to get by. I was talking to a guy whose family was big in the oil and gas industry. I was telling him about working construction and installing glass in high rises. So he said something about him working his way through college washing windows in high rises. I commented that I didn't see him as someone who would be hanging off the side of a building washing windows and he told me......"I didn't actually wash them" I took out a loan with a business plan and some of my fathers friends who are in real estate awarded me contracts etc. Here I was thinking that starting a business cleaning windows began with a trip to home depot to buy squeegees and ammonia and buckets etc etc. But to him it meant dressing up in a suit and going to a bank and calling in favors from his fathers golf buddies. And I guess the have not's who he took food out of their moths could f themselves....... he wanted a hobby cleaning windows so that's what he got.

q1605 said...

Joan I think every little bit counts. When I first went NC I was so angry I could spit. One day I was watching this cigar chomping guy driving a Cadillac that was behind a little Asian guy in a grocery store parking lot and the guy got impatient with him and laid down on his horn and just kept blowing it. Something about that just hit me the wrong way and I got my face about a half inch from the ass holes window and yelled at him that I can see the horn blows how about the driver? He quit honking at the poor guy and drove off. But for that day I set a bully in his place and if he didn't like it he could step out or he could call the cops.... I really didn't care which.

q1605 said...

And I googled that movie and had seen it before great metaphor for narcs.

So Pandora as your father rose up the ladder you were no longer rich Somewhere along the line it became affluence. It's like getting shit face At first I was drunk. Drunks don't have to go to all those goddamn meetings.

Judith said...

Something like that. I just remember how proud he and my mother were when they could proclaim they were part of the 1%. Not that they used it for a goddamn thing except to buy weird collectible shit and pretend they were investments rather than a form of hoarding.

q1605 said...

You could give my mother and ex wife all the gold in Fort Knox and they would still be a couple of cheap sluts.

Five Hundred Pound Peep said...

Yeah that was me too, Mulderfan, told to conform, etc.

Yeah "No Child Left Behind" and now Common Core are crap, its all about tests and conformity and yes they teachers will teach to the test and forget everything else to get their "merit" pay.

It is sickening how Bush and Clintons have dynasties now. All narcissists and sociopaths, who will do anything for power. I dread Hillary and Jeb as prez equally.

Five Hundred Pound Peep said...

The rich live in such a different world. Their connections and more float their boat. they do see the have-nots as the riff-raff they have to direct and counsel and "fix". I got that from the rich narcissistic biddies around here, in spades.

Five Hundred Pound Peep said...

Maybe the narcs cut and run? Joan. I sure hope so. Maybe when we rip the mask off and tell them they are full of crap, some will sprint away? I sure hope so.

Maybe when they see how low our patience is for bullcrap, they don't even start.

Agree about the cheap sluts, with types like that all the money in the world wouldn't change what they are.

q1605 said...

I am not a big fan of Donald Trump but he was being filmed for something and everywhere he went people were comping him stuff. And he actually said I am one of the richest guys in the world and people fall all over themselves to give me stuff I can easily afford, but you let a poor guy in here and they'll make him leave. At least he had the guts to call it like he saw it.

mulderfan said...

Peep, my bullshit meter has been set to "fuck 'em" for some time but every now and then one still slips through and bites me in the ass.

q1605 said...

M-fan. It reminds me of a scene in "Immortal beloved." Beethoven was at a bad point in his life and was walking down the street and a bunch of kids were messing with him. One would kick him from behind and as he turned around to deal with that kid another one would kick him from that new angle. Reminds me of divorcing number one. One of my ex's friends was in charge of my glass shop and was stealing checks and forging them. While this was going on my ex was raking me through the coals in the divorce. On top of all that my mother was taking things I told her in confidence and loading the metaphorical gun for the both of them. But I just couldn't get ahead of it. The soup was too think and I got so I couldn't get perspective on things. They should all be ashamed, but since they are all sociopaths, I think if I had died they would have pissed on my grave.

mulderfan said...

Funny, the NGC wanted to piss on our late brother's grave but I think his kids sprinkled him in a river somewhere. Instead he spit on my brother's picture everytime he visited the folks. The old girl never figured out why she had to keep cleaning "something" off the glass and I never ratted on him. Wonder if he's be the GC if the parents knew the truth.

q1605 said...

My first wife didn't like my mother at all. We would go to my mothers house on holidays and my ex-wife would be clamoring to leave almost from the time we walked in the door. It would make my mother livid. So of course after our divorce she gave her everything in her will. I am willing to bet my ex slipped the grave diggers extra cash to not dig her grave the full six feet. That's how much they hated each other in life. I doubt that my mothers impending death changed much between them. Other than to give my ex a license to kill her through neglect.

Joan S said...

Q I'm starting to see the dynamic between your mother and ex. It took me a long time, but I remember from my own FOO, the nasty women getting together and these "tea parties". Behind eachother's backs there was slandering of eachother for they actually do hate eachother. But this hate is on another realm than we can even begin to understand. I am willing to venture a guess here, but it is only a guess, an educated ACON guess, that your mother left your ex everything is because she trusted her own kind. As seedy as that is, it is plausible. I remember these narc women getting together and they were more open with eachother than they were with anyone else.

q1605 said...

Corectamundo! By leaving my ex the cash that me and my sis paid the dues for she not only gave us both an eternal slap in the face, but enabled someone just like her to pick up where she left off and continue her work for eternity. Too bad my sister and I really don't give a shit. I belly ache a lot here on the blog but the people in my day to day life never hear me ranting. The only way my ex will ever see me face to face is if I run her down in the parking lot of Kroger.

q1605 said...

And thought it was a nice hunk of change I think it is proof that the grim reaper can't be bought.

mulderfan said...

Yeah, that was definitely Barb saying fuck you to her on kids. Thanks to the NCG's lies I'll get the same treatment minus the $100.

q1605 said...

one of those NPD technicalities. When god asks her to defend her actions she can honestly say......it ain't like I didn't leave them anything. Between him and what I left his sister they could both order steak finger baskets from the DQ

Five Hundred Pound Peep said...

Yeah Donald is a narcissist, but he at times tells it like it is. Remember they have their rich buddies give them free food, hotels and places to stay too.

Mulderfan, some sneak up on me. I am realizing with horror how many narcissists surrounded me.

Yeah the wicked people would tag-team. I learned in the bad neighborhoods, fear groups more then solitary folks on the prowl, they can work together to screw you over with distraction games. None of the sociopaths give a damn. I know I was tag-teamed to death, too, so don't feel bad. I realized many of the coverts were pretty awful. One bad mix was Aunt Confused and my mother together. Even if Aunt Confused was a victim she had no conscience either.

The narcs will kiss up to someone they hate q if they have something they want. There's no love lost between that crowd. I don't see the family I left behind hugging each other and sharing the love, they are all competing together and miserable.

q1605 said...

With my mother it was the enemy of my enemy is my friend. To apply this logic to you family baffles me and is the main reason we'll never figure out Narc's to our satisfaction. Acon's usually end up as nice people despite out parents influence and we tend to project these values on to others.

Tundra Woman said...

Any ACON who thinks an NP is gonna leave them anything but nightmares is delusional, IMO. Granted, we don't know what we don't know but now there's so much more information available than there was years ago and we're comparing notes. The common themes have emerged and clearly, another is what ever they think you want or particularly need that they have will ensure you won't get it. I learned this as a kid. Over and over again. Even if it's something small they don't want, they'll break it, give it to someone else or throw it out and smirk and/or feign surprise when you respond with hurt and disappointment.
When you confide anything in an NP it will come back to haunt you as a Tool of Manipulation and/or a Tool of Degridation. Intangibles such as hopes, dreams, fears etc. will be used to ruthlessly bludgeon you for no other reason than they can. It's like placing an order at Hell's Drive-Through: They take your order, take your money and they shove a bag of shit back at you then tell you to "Have a Good One-(and there's a free IED in there for you too!")
It's just so much less paper work if you kill yourself rather than doing it themselves or paying someone else to do it.

You're skeletal and starving? "You look horrible-buy some clothes that FIT!"
You're freezing to death? "That's what happens when you don't wear a warm coat and boots in sub-zero weather!" they snort.
You lost your job of decades due to downsizing/off-shore competition and are essentially homeless?" "You've always been so irresponsible!"

q1605 said...

You show me a serial Killer about to be executed and I'll show you a mother gnashing her teeth telling people if we knew her son like she did we would know there is more to him than being a killer and please don't execute her son. Show me my mother if I had gone that route and I'll show you a mother who would pay the state for the extra electricity it will cost to electrocute me.

mulderfan said...

TW, My mother had a ceramic light up Xmas tree which enchanted my daughter as preschool toddler so "grandma" promised it to her. When it was time to downsize, grandma gave the tree to NGC's significant other. Meanwhile, my grown daughter was hurt and SIL told me she really didn't want it. I mentioned what I thought was just a mix-up to my mother and she replied, "I had no intention of giving it to (daughter), I just said that to shut the greedy little bugger up." I was there when the "greedy little bugger" admired, but didn't ask for the tree, at about 3-4 years of age and grandma, putting on a show for others in the room, promised it to her.
This what they do to get their rocks-off...build you up then slap you down, no matter how long they have to wait...they bite you in the ass!

q1605 said...

My sisters husband had some relative that would take them out for ice cream when he was a kid and ask them what flavor they liked and buy them something different.

Five Hundred Pound Peep said...

Mine would have asked to flip the switch herself Q!

I agree TW, more nightmares then anything else. The one aunt told me she bragged about disinheriting to a group of friends. How sick is that? Another version of smear campaigns?

If you want or need something yes they will make sure it fails or stomp on whatever makes you happy. I actually have a hard time showing happiness because I have this thing where I fear the bubble will be popped. How sad is that.

They have no hopes, dreams or fears, so will trash those too. Just for having feelings I was hated and a nobody in my creepazoid family. LOL about Hell's drive in. I remember acting like I did not care about things so they wouldn't survive.

I heard all those same statements...

Car break down? You must have stalled the engine!

Your husband lost his job? He's a loser and won't amount to anything! [sometimes I feel like the legions of crapheel bosses were all aligned with her]

Hey know those things I wrote about today where the JUDGERS force them down our throat, they do too, endless rules and measures to adhere too. If you do everything perfectly, they'll find the one thread out of place.

q1605 said...

I think I would have enjoyed the candor if my mother would have come right out and said what she meant. I didn't like hearing it from outsiders and with my mother I always left her house wondering who she was going to tell and what she was going to tell them.
I think she had a good idea of my no nonsense approach on betrayal. One time she was making some crap up about my second wife and I got up to leave and she asked me where I was going and I said I am going to go ask her myself, It was about 3 in the morning and she said you can't do that she'll know we have been talking about her. So I said "I don't give a shit." Somebody is lying and I am going to get to the bottom of it before another day goes by. I don't think any one had ever just said fuck it I am getting to the bottom of this. RIGHT NOW! If they had she probably wouldn't have been able to gut us like she did.

Five Hundred Pound Peep said...

Mine would slip up and the real thing would come out. Those psycho comments were her where she wrote "Loser SCUM" but she had to wear the "normal" mother mask at least some of the time. At least if mine just came out with it and said "I hate your frigging guts and wish you weren't my daughter" then I could have just gotten away faster. She could have done both of us a favor putting me even in foster care. I would have taken the roulette wheel. I am glad you said we are going to deal with this right now. I wish I thought of that. I doubt anyone else called her on her crap. I did that once at the residential home, dealing with those little sociopaths, got written up the next day for being "too direct" and calling them on their crap too. Narcs and sociopaths don't like those techniques being used.

q1605 said...

Peep it would have been funny if my mother could have ended up on the same side of the fence as sanity. I moved in with her when she got sick. She had lived with herself for years and just did what she did. But you could watch her unravel bit by bit trying to act sane each day. I didn't have to confront on her crazy she would finally turn into a jabbering loon. I guess you had to be there. I was over 50 at this time so she didn't have the power over my life like she did when I was younger Except to betray me to my ex. That's the only power she had over me. It's not hard to knife someone if you have practiced your whole life perpetuating deception and lies.

Anonymous said...

Oh, arrrggghh, Q! You almost nailed it, but I would make one small change here: "You show me a serial Killer about to be executed and I'll show you a mother gnashing her teeth telling people if we knew her son like she did we would know there is more to him than being a killer and please don't execute her son."

"Show me my mother if I had /gone that route/ [been falsely accused] and I'll show you a mother who would pay the state for the extra electricity it will cost to electrocute me." I don't have a way to do the strike-through on the "gone that route, so I used the / to set it off. --quartz
