“Mutantism on The March” :Chapter 92 “Terrorism and Swiss Cheese”

The mayor of Montreal, Droolpoop, was in a bit of a purple funk. While the world fair EXPO 67 was doing very well the prospect of the upcoming municipal elections was unnerving although he stood and excellent chance of retaining his position. The contractors filled their pockets and the Mafia had done very well selling tainted horse meat at Expo 67. Droolpoop was in the preliminary stages of planning for a bid for the upcoming summer Olympics. Thank goodness no one had vandalized the American Pavilion at Expo 67 because violence in Montreal would not bode well for any Olympic bid! However, some snoopy investigative journalists were braying like donkeys about tainted meat being sold at Expo 67 concessions and this could blow up into something nasty. Selling tuberculosis infected horse burgers could only taint the outstanding reputation of the city. Matters quickly worsened with criminal charges being laid against several prominent mobsters and in their defence they claimed Droolpoop had encouraged their nefarious acts. How ungrateful could they be. Droolpoop had no idea who sold the twenty aged Montreal police horses to Costello Weiner and Frank Company. Droolpoop claimed they were being sold to a well-known American restaurant chain in Nicaragua. Well at least something good could be said about the presence of organized crime. They were always there to bear the brunt of any criminal act!

Speaking of Nicaragua, Droolpoop’s bliss was shattered as on the closing day of Expo 67 the Nicaragua Pavilion at Expo 67 was firebombed. The mutants were immediately suspect as it was well known they had never tired of attacking the Sam Moza regime in Nicaragua and the guerilla fighters who were gnawing away at it. But the mutants were not so rash as to increase political repression on themselves. However they were delighted privately. The mutants could never pull off a firebombing given their small numbers in Montreal. They were too weak and the police could easily crush them. Squid had praised the virtues of revolutionary violence but mostly in the lesser developed world. Sophisticated spying technology was all too prevalent in industrialized countries hence terrorist acts were virtually useless.

In his book “Terrorism and Swiss Cheese” he had made his views known, “Terrorism and repression are bedfellows. Acts of terrorism invite blatant physical repression. In the developed world it is more acute where the apparatus of repression is highly developed and effective. Through legislation, often disguised as “emergency orders” countless people are liquidated or tossed into the brig. And the happy brainwashed majority will clap seeing these actions as a positive manifestation of law and order for the “public good”. Those who contest the abuse of democratic rights will be labelled as terrorists or criminals.

What a total farce. It is the high rates of literacy in the developed countries which stifle acts of revolutionary violence. The masses read the mass media piled high with mistruths. This is called free speech but observe carefully and see just how free it is. For example in the United States if only the public really knew what was happening in Vietnam. The Lie has been so perfected by the American military industrial complex and internalized by journalists forgive them for they do not know what they write and say. The masses can’t see the simple fact that the media is supported by advertisements. Those who advertise increase their business by exploiting people. When there is political opposition to their greed and frequent genocidal projects and products they are angered which is then by osmosis and economic realities transferred into the media they support. I emphasize this attitude need not be overt. When a terrorist group attacks this or that corporation or threatens their interests the press respond as all lackies must. Who wants to see the big bosses, those who pay their salaries, criticized?

We have a different situation in lesser developed areas of the world where literacy has not reached universal levels. Populations there are less susceptible to mass brainwashing. Daily doses of media repression float by unnoticed. It flows through the masses as if they were Swiss Cheese where the multitudes of holes contribute to the overall healthiness of the masses. The masses remain uncontaminated. In the lesser developed countries, the police and army are weak and can’t effectively repress. The political leaders would rather fatten their bank accounts and indulge in lavish overconsumption rather than buy more helicopters. Thus revolutionary violence, if organized, can function with more success although hundreds may be wiped out in clumsy governmental retaliatory raids. Only such highly professional and dedicated terrorists like Santa Claus or Tarzan can function in a developed country. Notice in developed countries Santa Claus relies on hit and run techniques. To stay in the vicinity of the attack would be suicide. He knows his enemies are equally professional and they outnumber him.

In the lesser developed countries people are often forced to fight their rulers as not to would mean liquidation. This is not the case in developed countries due to a higher standard of living. Here discontent and dissatisfaction is catered to due to a higher standard of living and through a highly developed and profitable industry of sex, drugs, alcohol, lotteries, rock n roll, film etc. This escapist industry is one of the most effective tools of repression invented. It makes one forget, a luxury which millions can’t afford in less developed countries.”
