"Gods of the Copybook Headings"

As I pass through my incarnations in every age and race, I make my proper
prostrations to the Gods of the Market-Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn.
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breath of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market-Place;
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in

With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch.
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch.
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings.
So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”

On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Heading said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”

In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul; But, though we had
plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Heading said: “If you don’t work you die.”

Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not God that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four-
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man- There are only
four things certain since Social Progress began:-
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,

And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wobbling back to the Fire;
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins

When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

In 25 days We The People will take an important step in favor of the survival of the American experiment, perhaps even a necessary step for the very survival of the human species. For if the Constitutional Republic of these United States of America is allowed to fall, there is no other firewall against the inevitable conclusion of worldwide “Social Justice”. Europe, Great Britain and Australia have fallen and we are teetering on the edge. But they have made a fatal error. An error in judgment that will not only forestall their 100+ year quest to obliterate the last beacon of Freedom on the face of the earth, but END it, once and for all time.

Perhaps they would have succeeded had the Eco-Terrorist-in-Chief been able to “manufacture” an additional 537 votes in Palm Beach County in 2000, but A.C.O.R.N. failed him. The progressives/Marxists/socialists/anti-colonialists would have no doubt not “let a crisis go to waste” when like-minded America-haters attacked on 9-11-2001. Declaration of War, evoking the War Powers Act, Marshall Law, revocation of property rights, Social Justice … checkmate. It didn’t happen. But now that they have so arrogantly exposed themselves, I can see how it might have.

That near miss emboldened them to crawl back under their rocks, hone their election fraud skills (A.C.O.R.N.), create the “perfect” candidate and imprint it onto one of their own, spoon-feed the “useful idiots” of the LameStreetMedia to silence all dissent, ramp up indoctrination in the public schools and universities, carefully tweak and corrupt market forces through regulations and monetary policy (Fannie & Freddie, Federal Reserve, IMF, United Nations, etc. – tailor-made constructs to be manipulated and operated outside the reach of the US Constitution and the rule of law) and wait for the engineered collapse to create a new “crisis of capitalism” to take advantage of … then strike. The Marxist Progressives went all-in in 2008 after successfully duping the American electorate into electing their puppet and huge majorities in Congress.

I am reminded here of that famous quote of the Japanese Admiral after Pearl Harbor, “I fear that all that we have done is awaken a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve.” In 25 days, the awakened giant of the American People, will strike back.
