“Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.”

— Voltaire

Burn the evil American flag - symbol of American state terrorism.

To the reader in America...

Our terrorist government and military may confine its mass murders primarily to the innocent civilian people of other countries, but do you think it’s on our side? You think it’s there to protect us from the righteous wrath of the world?

You bet it is — if you are wealthy, “well-connected” and immoral. If you obediently look the other way while it commits its obscene crimes against humanity.

Not wealthy or well-connected? We are there to be used like patriotic fools. We are cannon-fodder. We are nothing to them — nothing but consumer-taxpayers — suckers — to be used, controlled and bled.

And you better be damn sure you pay your taxes, dear “consumer”. Or else you’ll discover just what a mafia the U.S. government really is.

Your tax dollars are extortion money

An evilly leering skull and crossbones, with a banner above it that says 'government' and a banner below that says 'industry'.
$$ In Gold We Trust $$

Think about it. You have to pay — whether you like it or not. No matter how much of your hard-earned money is squandered on $500 toilet seats for the shitheads at the Pentagon — you HAVE to pay. Pay up or the IRS will do very bad things to you.

That’s certainly what they want you to believe, at least. They use the threat of violence to make people comply.

However, if you’ve got courage and a genuine moral conscience you can be a successful tax resister — but you have to know how to protect yourself legally from these pirates. (See A Few Facts About Tax Resistance for more information.) If you don’t know how to protect yourself, heavily-armed IRS thugs can and will kick in your door and drag you away if they think it’s worthwhile. Not that it’s cost-effective: it costs them about $4000 for every $1000 they collect from tax resisters! That’s what makes tax resistance effective, even if they do eventually collect. And only rarely does this involve any violence. But the IRS will use violent, criminal tactics if they want to make an example out of you. They’ve done it to many people already — ordinary American people who are not criminals.

In the real world that’s called “extortion”. And kidnapping.

By actually carrying out their threats of violence against a few people, they make their threats of violence against everybody else much more effective. So the extorted tax dollars keep pouring in.

The United States Corporate Mafia Government must extort your money from you. Would you voluntarily pay them to butcher innocent women and children with cluster bombs and poison whole nations with Depleted Uranium weapons?

Today’s technology of mass-murder ain’t cheap. The U.S. military must bloodsuck the American economy for at least 350 to 400 BILLION dollars every year to pay for all their nasty toys. They absolutely depend on your ignorance, your apathy and above all — YOUR money — to commit their war-crimes.

So if you’re an obedient little consumer-taxpayer they’ll leave you alone. Seriously oppose their evil and they’ll do their damnedest to destroy you.

In the end, of course, it is they who will be destroyed. That is guaranteed. If ever there will be an “act of God” it will be the total annihilation of the evil American Empire someday.

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it ... always.”

— Mahatma Gandhi

But in the meantime — before the inevitable fall of the American Empire — how many more innocent civilian people and helpless children around the world will it butcher, burn alive, irradiate, poison, torture and impoverish?

And who is in better position to stop the genocidal U.S. military/government than U.S. citizens?

Know your enemy: the true nature of the U.S. government and military

Of course the U.S. Corporate Mafia Government has all the advantages in guns and ammo — to put it mildly! So if you try to play their game, you play right into their hands. Then the hypocrites can scream “terrorists! terrorists!” and launch their next propaganda/murder campaign.

As John Trudell of the American Indian Movement has said:

“You can’t out-mean this system, don’t even try. But you can out-think it.”

He knows what he’s talking about. On February 11, 1979, John Trudell led a march in Washington, D.C. He had been warned not to speak out, but he delivered a public address anyway — from the very steps of the FBI building. In his speech he supported Leonard Peltier and denounced the FBI’s covert terror-campaign against Indians. He even burned an upside-down American flag.

Less than 12 hours later, Trudell’s wife, Tina, his three children, and his wife’s mother were burned to death in the family home in Duck Valley, Nevada. It was the work of one or more arsonists — who were never caught, of course. But they probably got a nice fat bonus from the nearest FBI field office.

Most people in this suffering world are the hostages of violent governments. And like all their fellow criminal tyrants, the U.S. Corporate Mafia Government has a gun to the head of every person it sees as a threat to its money and power.

Pious public pronouncements notwithstanding, the U.S. government and military are perfectly delighted to slaughter the children of any country in the world. They’ve already brutally murdered millions of people in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Germany, Korea, Japan, the Philippines, all over the Caribbean, Central America and South America, Iraq , Yugoslavia and Afghanistan.

And if you dare to seriously, permanently and publicly assert your independence they will be very happy to murder you, your spouse and your children too.

Those who don’t want to believe it need only consider the events at Waco, Ruby Ridge, Pine Ridge Reservation and the Philadelphia MOVE house. Every single one of the murder victims in these incidents were American citizens, including all the children who were burned alive in Waco and the Philadelphia MOVE house. All of them were murdered by violent thugs of the U.S. government, or the dirty, racist cops.

When FBI and ATF goons assaulted the people in Waco in 1993 at the Branch Davidian complex, 86 people died in the fire — including 25 children. And this was after a long siege where the FBI and ATF agents psychologically tortured their victims by keeping them awake day and night, playing powerfully amplified, bizarre noises such as the sound of rabbits being violently murdered.

The crazy people were not inside the Branch Davidian complex. The real psychos were outside, wearing FBI and ATF uniforms.

When the violently racist Philadelphia pigs firebombed the MOVE house on May 13, 1985, the resulting fire killed 11 MOVE members, including 5 children, and burned down 61 homes in the surrounding African-American neighborhood.

And of course there was the Weaver family at Ruby Ridge, Idaho. In 1992 an FBI sniper blew Vicki Weaver’s head off as she stood at the door of her cabin, holding her 10-month-old baby. They murdered her 14-year-old son too. An FBI sniper even purposely shot the family dog. I wonder if those cowardly slimebags got special commendations.

These are just a few of the well-known incidents of the last 20 years. But the U.S. government has arrested, imprisoned and murdered American citizens for political reasons since it’s beginning. Decent, pacifist Americans were actually arrested and imprisoned merely for speaking out against our involvement in World War One. Decent, conscientious Americans were arrested and imprisoned merely for being socialists in the 1950s.

Dr. Wilhelm Reich in white lab coat, sitting at a table and looking pensive. Dr. Wilhelm Reich

Anybody who has ever threatened the pathological status quo has been a target for persecution in America. The world-renowned, anti-Nazi psychologist Wilhelm Reich is one of the most interesting cases in point.

He fled Germany in 1933 after Hitler’s rise to power, eventually seeking safe haven in America in 1939. But in “The Land of the Free” he was framed, arrested and imprisoned on thoroughly bogus charges in 1955. He died in prison in 1957.

The real purpose of Wilhelm Reich’s imprisonment was to silence him. They couldn’t silence his books, however, and today he is well known for his ground-breaking work in “orgone energy” and sexual psychology, some of which involved an astute analysis of the sadistic sexual perversions which are inherent to the Nazi/fascist mentality. (Such perverted, Nazi-like psychopathologies are also manifested by violently racist Israeli soldiers and “settlers” when they shoot Palestinian children dead, rape Palestinian women and torture and urinate on Palestinian men whom they hold prisoner.)

Unfortunately, before he came to America, Reich had no idea that there were staunch defenders of the perverted Zionist/Nazi mentality at the highest levels of the American plutocracy. They supported Hitler’s rise to power in the 1920s and ’30s, and did a lucrative business with the Nazis. Zionist Jews actually secretly collaborated with the Nazis to drive ordinary Jews out of Europe. Zionists and Nazis shared not only similar psychopathologies, they also had a common political interest: the Nazis wanted all Jews to leave Germany, and the Zionists wanted as many Jews as possible to invade Palestine and take possession of it.

American flag - swastika and stripes - symbol of realpolitik in America.

From its founding in 1947, the CIA hired a lot of former Nazi officers, and these Nazis taught the CIA and the U.S. government all they knew about torture techniques and mass mind-control. Under such influences the United States government mutated into an increasingly fascist state, epitomized by the anti-communist witch hunts of the McCarthy era. Decent people like Wilhelm Reich were the natural enemies of the Nazi-sympathizers within the CIA and the American plutocracy, and he was one of many casualties of that time. See the review of Listen, Little Man!, a book by Reich published in 1948, which is an eloquent warning to the sheeplike American people about the disease of creeping fascism within the American culture.

“I came to America because of the great, great freedom which I heard existed in this country. I made a mistake in selecting America as a land of freedom, a mistake I cannot repair in the balance of my lifetime.”

— Albert Einstein

Fortunately, Einstein was far too famous for the American authorities to frame him and throw him in prison. So his honest political views were simply ignored and censored by the corporate mass-media. And to this day, few people know that Albert Einstein was actually a socialist.

The FBI was behind the murder of Martin Luther King in 1968. In fact, since it was founded in 1908, the FBI has been burglarizing, framing, terrorizing and occasionally murdering American leftist activists. Of course it has always put out a lot of PR about how it “fights crime”, but the FBI is first and foremost a political tool of the criminal rulers of this country, so you know what their PR is worth. This American Gestapo has been particularly active against American leftists since the 1960s. The FBI’s illegal and infamous COINTELPRO operations are well-known among politically informed people in America.

Many and varied are the crimes of the U.S. Corporate Mafia Government against the American people. These crimes have been committed for as long as the government has existed. And the corporate mass-media has always been a very willing accomplice in covering up those crimes, so most of them you will never hear about unless you knew the victims or their family and friends.

Effective strategies for fighting The Beast

So as a mass-movement, “within the belly of The Beast” itself, the most practical long-term strategy for people in America is one of nonviolent civil disobedience and tax-resistance. Those who know have a duty to speak out to others. Those who can must organize and lead. And all people of conscience will refuse to pay extortion money to the criminal U.S. government.

That would be enough — if enough people would do it.

It’s amazing to realize that if enough people in America would simply wake up from their patriotic brainwashing and rediscover their consciences — then the apparently omnipotent U.S. Corporate Mafia Government would topple like the rotted house of cards it really is.

If only people would refuse to do their dirty work for them! If only there were no legions of brainwashed morons eager to join the U.S. military. If there were no violent, sadistic creeps to fill the ranks of the criminal CIA, FBI, ATF, DEA and the many other governmental goon squads, then all the heartless freaks in their corporate boardrooms and government/Pentagon offices would be totally powerless.

“Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one’s self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice.

“Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all.”

— Michael Rivero

What goes around, comes around

The fact that the evil bastards of the American plutocracy can draw upon an ample supply of moral cowards and brainwashed idiots to do their dirty work is a shameful indictment of the American people themselves — not merely of our government.

What happens when a seriously ill individual refuses to take any steps to cure their disease? What happens when they refuse even to admit they have a disease? Their illness worsens until they die. It’s the same with whole nations.

American society is profoundly ill. And far worse, it is causing great harm to the entire world. If America refuses to cleanse itself and atone for its crimes, then it will be destroyed by a universe of forces — both from within and from the outside. This is the lesson of history. All evil empires are doomed.

But the nonviolent civil disobedience and tax-resistance of enough decent people within the U.S. would bring down the most violently predatory empire in the world today.

Maybe then we wouldn’t have to suffer the evil fate of our evil government. Maybe then we wouldn’t deserve it.

“Those who exchange essential liberty for temporary security shall have neither liberty nor security.”

— Benjamin Franklin

National War Tax Resistance
Coordinating Committee

Drawing of a little white dove sitting on the end of the barrel of a big howitzer cannon. Above and below the cannon are the words: 'If you work for peace, stop paying for war' “The National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee is a coalition of groups from across the U.S., formed in 1982 to provide information and support to people involved in or considering some form of war tax resistance (WTR).

“Affiliate organizations and individual supporters are joined together in a common struggle for a more just and peaceful society. We oppose militarism and war and refuse to participate in the tax system which supports such violence.

“NWTRCC sees poverty, racism, sexism, homophobia, economic exploitation, environmental destruction and militarization of law enforcement as integrally linked with the militarism which we abhor. Through the redirection of our tax dollars NWTRCC members contribute directly to the struggle for peace and justice for all. NWTRCC promotes war tax resistance within the context of a broad range of nonviolent strategies for social change, and is firmly embedded in the peace movement.”

“NWTRCC’s goal is to maintain and build a national movement of conscientious objectors to military taxes by supporting, coordinating and publicizing the WTR actions of groups and individuals. These actions include: war tax resistance, protest, and refusal; the redirection of military taxes to meet human needs; support of the U.S. Peace Tax Fund Bill; and adjustment of lifestyle to avoid tax liability. WTR actions are undertaken in accordance with each individual’s moral, religious or political conscience, and are hoped to contribute toward changing the priorities and policies of the U.S. government.”

NWTRCC makes available the book:
War Tax Resistance: A Guide To Withholding Your Support From The Military

“The most comprehensive guide to war tax resistance (WTR), including philosophical and political questions, information on the federal budget, the history of WTR, personal WTR stories, methods, consequences, international WTR, WTR organizing, and more."

We The People Organization: Taxes - Showdown

“The federal income tax and social security tax are unconstitutional and illegal; the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (the income tax amendment) never even came close to being ratified in 1913; federal income taxes are voluntary, not compulsory, and there is no law that requires citizens to file and pay federal income taxes...”

Listen, Little Man!
by Wilhelm Reich
A Review

“Reich wrote Listen, Little Man! in 1946 and it was published in 1948. The book is Reich's warning to the common man in all societies that he, the little, average man, is lethally responsible for the rapidly spreading social cancer of fascism.

“Reich had seen how common citizens in Germany embraced their enslavement by their Nazi overlords. He was now seeing the reappearance of the same phenomenon in the United States and Europe. Someone needed to tell the average citizen that his personal characteristics were at the root of the world-wide plague of totalitarianism.”
