Broke the Koch Brothers' Takeover of America
Class War For Idiots / October 7, 2009
By Mark Ames


Every day and every week we hear another shocking story about how our billionaires have cooked up an even sicker scheme to shake down Americans and plunder the national wealth, as if the last scheme was too easy and boring. They don’t even bother hiding it anymore: take the story about the “Death Bonds” I wrote about last month, first reported (however blandly) in the New York Times: the very same Wall Street bankers who conned $23 trillion out of America’s wealth is now going to use some of that play money to place bets on when we Americans will die—and the sooner we die, the more billions in E-Z profits Wall Street will earn.

It’s as if America is some kind of despised abstraction to our ruling class: a faraway colony to plunder, a mass of humanity to use and exploit as it sees fit. In fact, there’s a pretty clear pattern developing of just how much they despise Americans and how little they value our lives and our humanity.

It’s painful to admit this, but the way our 21st century American ruling class treats the rest of us is eerily reminiscent of the great Russian novel Dead Souls, about the 19th century Russian ruling class’s beastly treatment of its serfs (also called “souls”), back when most Russians were essentially slaves, legal property of the ruling class. Dead Souls features one of the most grotesque shysters in any novel: he comes up with a get-rich-quick scheme that’s eerily similar to today’s Wall Street’s latest schemes: the shyster goes from village to village, buying up “dead souls” (or “dead serfs”) who are still on the census rolls of the local landowners. The dead serfs are of no use to their owners anymore, so the landowners are happy to make one last ruble off their dead serfs by selling ownership rights over them to the shyster. The shyster’s plan: to acquire so many “dead souls” that he can package them into valuable collateral, and take out a huge loan against his “dead souls” which will finally make him rich. Wealth spun out of nothing but human misery, so that the shyster can waste huge amounts of money impressing others from the serf-owning class.

In other words: Dead Souls Loans.

Fast-forward to America in 2009, and now we’re the dead souls. Top American corporations are taking out “dead peasant insurance” on their workers without the workers even knowing it—and cashing in hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars on their employees, even though often times they don’t even offer those same employees decent health insurance coverage to allow them to survive illnesses. To top it off, these “dead peasant insurance” payouts are tax-free for the corporation that cashes in. It was a revelation so revolting that even ABC’s News’ mannequins admitted they were “stunned.”

In fact, as I said, they shouldn’t be stunned. It’s part of an ongoing pattern for our ruling class and their view of America and Americans. It’s time we faced up to this grim fact. Too many of them are against us and against this country, weakening America to the point where it threatens to be permanently crippled, much like how the communists deformed Russia for decades. They had their bolsheviks; we have our billionaire-bolsheviks. The effect of these two rapacious ruling elites is the same: the state and the people serve the tiny ruling class; and when we’re not serving them, we can fuck off and die. Literally. Because that serves them too.

For practical purposes, here is a small handy list of 8 Reasons To Hate Our Billionaire Bolsheviks [or “The H8 8”]:

1. According to Harvard Medical Researchers, 45,000 Americans die each year due to lack of health insurance. That’s one American dying every 12 minutes; it also means that our fucked up health care system kills as many Americans every month as Al Qaeda managed on September 11th, with another 9,000 American dead thrown in for good measure. Doesn’t this count as corporate terrorism? Doesn’t this mean we should go to war against our murderers, to protect ourselves?

2. Those hundreds of thousands of American corpses enriched a handful of American health care CEOs like William McGuire of UnitedHealth: he earned hundreds of millions in annual bonuses in the mid-2000s ($125 million in 2004, more in 2005) along with as much as $1.8 billion in stock options (some of which was clawed back by the SEC), and a $5 million annual pension guaranteed for life; at one point, $1 out of every $700 Americans paid in health care went directly to McGuire’s obscene billion-dollar payout.

3. “Dead Peasants Insurance”: Companies paid out $8 billion in premiums on millions of their employees, and expect to earn $9 billion in the next 5 years when these employees die. To make sure that the life insurance companies can pay out the winnings on our deaths, $22 billion in TARP money–our money– was set aside this spring for insurance companies.

4. Herbert Perone, spokesman for the American Council of Life Insurers, told the San Francisco Chronicle: “Nobody gets upset when a company insures its plant or its fleet of cars or land or any other business asset. To think that your labor force is not a business asset is extremely shortsighted.”

5. The gap between wealthiest 10 percent and the rest of America is worse than at any time on record. Two-thirds of all income gains from 2002-7 went to the top 1 percent. The Walton family alone is worth more than the bottom 100 million Americans combined. Wal-Mart is a major player in the “dead peasants insurance” game; it’s alleged that dead peasant insurance payouts are used for executive bonuses.

6. Bank of America chief Ken Lewis will earn a $125 million retirement package after soaking US taxpayers for $45 billion in bailout funds and $118 billion in guarnatees. Meanwhile, banks like BofA earned $24 billion in overdraft fees in 2008, charging some 51 million Americans an average of $470 each in highly dubious circumstances. It’s thought that banks will pocket even more this year.

7. Mortgages: financial institutions get taxpayers to subsidize losses via $700 billion TARP program, $1.25 trillion mortgage-backed securities buyback program, hundreds of billions in “toxic assets” guarantees, at least $400 billion shoring up Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, $30 billion for PPIP, etc.

8. Mortgages: homeowners. Two headlines tell the story: “Mortgage-relief program helps relatively few troubled homeowner” [McClatchy, Sept 10.] and “Firms are getting billions, but homeowners still in trouble” [McClatchy, Oct 4.] The latter article details how even the meager funds earmarked for homeowner relief winds up getting looted by the mortgage servicers who created the problems in the first place.

And on, and on…

It’s one of the more grotesque yet inevitable examples of just how badly the super-wealthy have warped America so that it’s become little more than a rigged game in which we the people always lose, just like Mr. Lebowski said we would.

In 1965, Ronald Reagan said in a speech: “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largesse out of the public treasury. From that moment on the majority…always vote[s] for the candidate promising the most benefits from the treasury with the result that democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, always to be followed by dictatorship.” [Quoted in David Cay Johnston’s book Free Lunch.]

The great irony of course is that it wasn’t the voters who plundered the public treasury, but rather, the super-wealthy who plundered the public and subverted democracy. But this is worse than mere irony; Reagan was the billionaire’s Trojan Horse to power. They rode on his drooling senile smile into power, on the worst assumptions about the American people and how we’d use our democratic power to take their wealth; so the minute they got the reigns, they plundered us first, before we could get to them. This is what I mean by America’s billionaire class as an alien, colonial overlord class: they hate us, quite simply, and the more they plunder America, the more they both loathe us and fear us, or what we might do to them–or should do.

As for the dictatorship that Reagan speaks of, it’s already here, thanks in no small part to Reagan himself. But it’s not the crude, old-fashioned dictatorship, the kind with cool uniforms and parades. That wouldn’t last a week, because we’ve all been trained to look out for it and spot the crude old saber-toothed dictators. Instead, today we have a kind of highly-evolved dictatorship concealing itself as a functioning democracy. But in all the important issues, where billions or trillions are at stake, where their yachts and private jets are pitted against Americans’ lives or the national interest, you can spot the dictatorship’s horrific Predator-beast head rising from the swamp… such as when the vote on the public option was put to the Democratic supermajority-run Senate committee, and it got crushed by the same margin as if the Senate was split, or run by a Republican supermajority.

Which brings me back to Dead Souls: despite the title, the book is actually one of the greatest comic novels of all time, a kind of comic poem, “laughter through tears” as the author, Gogol, put it. But I’m not sure Gogol would find our 2009 version of Dead Souls very comical. And Hollywood would never buy it. There’s nothing redeeming, no characters an audience can possibly identify with. Our American Dead Souls is just too…depressing.

    There are indeed plots that can’t be used in film. At least not as long as the producers wish to make a buck. Eric Ambler put it best in his “Mask of Dimitros:”

    “A writer of plays said that there are some situations that one cannot use on the stage; situations in which the audience can feel neither approval, sympathy, nor antipathy; situations out of which there is no possible way that is not humiliating or distressing and from which there is no truth, however bitter, to be extracted. . . . All I know is that while might is right, while chaos and anarchy masquerade as order and enlightenment, these conditions will obtain.”

  • 4. Sarah  |  October 7th, 2009 at 5:10 am

    “It’s as if America is some kind of despised abstraction to our ruling class…”

    No, it’s not “as if”; that’s it, exactly.

    America is just a market for them. A natural resource, like an old growth forest or a strip mine; something to be exploited for profit. It’s not a home, or a country they love.

    Once it’s been used up and sucked dry, they’ll simply move on to greener pastures, leaving the rest of us to pick up the pieces. It’s perfectly convenient for a billionaire to retire to an arbitrary well-run country when things start to go seriously wrong here in the good old USA; for us working slobs, not so much.

    They’re like ticks on a dog that has been sucked dry. Time to pop off and find a quiet place to rest and enjoy the fruits of being a parasite.

    The joke is on them, though. They feel the same way about the earth, and once the biosphere has been used up, they will die too. Idiots.

    The Bolsheviks, for all the trouble they caused, did give the USSR a half-decent universal healthcare system.
    I’ve recently been seeing this term “corporate communism” thrown around to describe the behavior of the health insurance companies and banks. Is that just something liberal commentators use to broaden their base of appeal, or do they actually see concrete similarities? What is the point of lumping together two diametrically opposed concepts?
    The “Dead Souls” analogy is well-taken. I find Gogol to be a rather toothless commentator on the state of Russian society, however. He intended to write a sequel to “Dead Souls”, where the main character, Chichikov, is reformed through religion. Is that the solution for America’s vampiric capitalist? Gogol’s problem was not the very existence of a lower class and upper class, but merely the lack of concern on the part of the latter for the former.

I happen to be reading Dead Souls right now, but I think the analogy is a bit of a stretch. I mean, they’re both despicable practices, but aside from the ‘Dead’ in the title, they’re not the same thing. Otherwise, good piece.

    We have the same exploitative class running New Zealand since the Reagan era of the 80s:
    1.Publically owned organisations were privatized the profits and dividends of which are sent overseas.The public revenue which could help ordinary Kiwis lost for ever.
    2. The mantra now is “Tax Cuts, Tax Cuts”!Reducing Governments power to improve the Commonwealth.And now the National Government have cut funding for night education classes which have been an institution for decades here.
    3.Property speculation for capital gain is huge here helping to make buying a first home impossible for very many.These Capital Gains are not taxed even though the money is borrowed from banks and the wage slaves pay the mortgage ’cause they have to rent to live somewhere!
    4.Hundreds of millions of tax,from capital gain, could be collected to help eradicate child poverty in New Zealand which is bad for a so called developed country
    5.A family financial package to help working families with children was brought in,but the people who really needed the help-beneficiaries with children were discriminated against-They got NOTHING!
    6.Like America we’ve caught your disease of “WEALTH WORSHIP”.
    7.We have a business and government elite here completely blinkered by the ideology of reducing government fiscal ability to help its own people and privatization as much as they can get away with.The same stuff that started with Reagan and has been practiced in California under Shwarzenegger:LOOK AT THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA NOW!
    8. The selfish greed of Kiwis has been appealed to relentlessly by the Right:If we get in we’ll cut taxes and cut taxes until the government is little more than a tax collector and revenue distributor.
    9.Our Prime Minister,John Key, made his millions manipulating money in America and identifies with Wall Street, he was there the other day ringing their bell for another day of speculation without production which has ruined America.
    10. the current government is a dog with the misleading description of Centre Left!but its extreme right is the tail that wags the whole dog!

  • 17. extra-us reader  |  October 7th, 2009 at 2:57 pm

    this is capitalism. wage labourers (=90% percent of the population) are simply inputs for the self-expansion of capital. they are used up, then thrown away – and hey, why not make a buck on their deaths too.

    oh by the way, if anyone was wondering if Moore’s figures on wealth distribution were reliable, here is a handy summary of the FED’s very own statistics:

    “In terms of types of financial wealth, the top one percent of households have 38.3% of all privately held stock, 60.6% of financial securities, and 62.4% of business equity. The top 10% have 80% to 90% of stocks, bonds, trust funds, and business equity, and over 75% of non-home real estate. Since financial wealth is what counts as far as the control of income-producing assets, we can say that just 10% of the people own the United States of America.”

    where to start? I guess I’m a form of exile myself. Living in Montreal. Not in the belly of the beast, more like a little crab nibbling on the Beast’s bloated balls. But, my decision to leave the states was more of a spur of the moment decision. It was the early Reagan-to Hinckly-to Bush era and I found myself down and out in South Florida, with a travelling companion that had a drinking problem, combined with a diabetic condition, that led him from the Palm Beach Polo Club, hobnobbing with Prince Chuck and the gang, to drowning in his own puke in a Sarasota Sally Anne, packed with Vietnam vets hacking their Agent Oranged lungs out every night. I’d lost my wallet with my last c-note in it, after catching a ride with an off-duty cop on his Harley who told me that it I’m stopped with no money, I go straight to the road gang. Reached for the wallet, where I’d stashed my last hundred, saying, when I get to this, I’m out of here. Reached for the wallet. Gone.Panic. Broke, a member of the criminal underclass, because I’d left my wallet in some fucking payphone while calling up some joint where I’d be running around in a white shirt and bowtie, playing the mincing lacky, and bringing madame her lobster bisque…
    so, enter Gogol’s Dead Souls.I walked to Lido Circle and found a phone booth. I was going to make a collect call and make a not too desperate sounding pitch to an old friend outside of DC, asking him to buy this painting I’d left with him and just wire the money. Special deal. Now, the phones need a dime to get a dial tone.
    I stood outside the booth for close to an hour asking the good citizens of Paradise to lend me a dime which would be spat outof the coin slot and returned in a jiffy. You’d think that I was asking for an organ donation by reactions of the passersby. I even had on a clean shirt and a gas station rest room shave.

    Without the shadowy, secret banking cabal AKA as the ‘Fed,’ none of this would be possible. (Quick, name me one member of the Fed, other than Ben Bernanke.)

    We’re born into economic slavery and die in debt, forever enslaved to the Fed’s monetary policies which favor those who have wealth… lots and lots of wealth.

    The wealthy elite are the ones who get bailed out when their Wall Street casino bets crap out while We the People get the layoff notices and watch our savings account interest go to nearly zero percent while Wall Street billionaires get 24 TRILLION in unsecured loans from the Fed, with NO accounting as to whom got the money or what it’s being used for.

  • 24. Expat in BY  |  October 8th, 2009 at 5:11 am

    What I’ve been thinking about reading all this is that most insurance policies are invalidated by “force majeure,” or death from riot or civil war. It’s an evil thought, but if you really wanted to screw over the big boys with the peasant insurance policies in their safes, just start a really bloody civil war, target specifically Walmart or other big name store employees, and the gamble on the lives of their peasants will be a bust.

    It’s happening across the pond too, accelerating since the Thatcher/Reagan years. Recall the panicky demands for a “level playing field” when the Russian billionaires started emerging? Ours didn’t want to be left behind, did they? That playing field means western workers having all the same rights as those in 3rd world/developing/emerging(nomenclature of day?)countries so our big boys don’t get outbigged. It might take ’em a few years longer, but they seem to be successfully pirateising formerly political space, along with all the different public services they can get their reptilian claws into.

Only Mark Ames the brilliant jew thinker can lead us to freedom, the freedom to rise up and have a revolution, like the French and Russian one. Only that can free us all. As soon as we go through a violent revolution in which people will be executed and vital property and infrastructure destroyed we’ll be a free people and a free country, once the militias (who’s skin color will be white) run around battling other militias of different political ideologies and the liberals being the refugees who keep getting genocided on, while the infrastructure keeps getting destroyed, which is common in revolutions.

There are a million white supremacists, millions of gun nuts with stupid mcveigh or glenn beck sympathies, and christian gun nuts just begging for the opportunity to murder a doctor. And of course who knows how many of these town hall idiots we have protesting their own healthcare.

    And on the left? A bunch of uninspiring chomsky reading vegans protesting the IMF, G20, ‘globalization’ and let’s see.. israel (yeah no better way to win than vehemently attacking Israel and alienating the jews, the most historically radically left wing group), their parents’ not buying them a new enough car or a hip enough apartment. The mainstream left seems to have taken over the reagan era republican platform. They have this idea that their pristine moral superiority and refusal to play dirty will win people over. This is of course fucking retarded because Americans are idiots who can only understand things like ‘who is shouting louder and in smaller words?’

    This is a sorry and pathetic state of affairs- how can *conservatives* have a monopoly over *radicalization* of the lower classes? It’s insane on so many levels. There needs to be counter-radicalization in the correct direction. Why the fuck aren’t there millions of uninsured serfs rioting in front of the capital?

    The oligarchs did not “buy” your congress, executive and judicial system. They are your government.

    “The chief problem of American political life for a long time has been how to make the two Congressional parties more national and international…(therefore) argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers…Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy (Tragedy and Hope: 1247-1248).“

    Not to mention there economic famine imposed on Russia by the same international Bolshevik people 3 million Russian children killed form preventable symptoms by 91-97, state sponsored terrorism over a billion dollars and ethnic cleansing, drug trafficking and distribution in Russia, sex trafficking, Jewish lead organised crime, trade embargo, etc.

    Stop the ethnic Russian genocide!

    James from UK supports Russia, Serbia and Orthodox Christianity.

    Western back and installed Bolshevik Red Army commander Leon Trotsky paid a billion dollars by Jacob Schiff, Ashberg, etc to found the Red Army (who built there banking and media empire from profits of Russian blood and slave labour) with US passports with other Jewish Bolshevik revolutionaries in New York through Schiffs “Friends of Russian Freedom” of direct the civil war and install Communism in Russia.

    Trotsky said of Russia:

    ” – We should turn Her (Russia) into a desert populated with white Niggers We will impose upon them such a tyranny that was never dreamt by the most hideous despots of the East.
    The peculiar trait of that tyranny is that it will be enacted from the left. Rather than the right and it will be red rather than white in color. Its color will be red literally because we would spill such torrents of blood that will pale all human losses of the capitalist wars and make (the survivors) shudder.

    The largest overseas banks will cooperate with us most closely. If we win the Revolution and squash Russia, on the funeral pyres of its remains we will strengthen the power of Zionism and become a power the whole world would drop in the face of on its knees. We will show (to the world) what the real power means.

    By way of terror and blood baths we will bring Russian intelligentsia into the state of total stupor, to idiocy, to the animal state of being…And so far our young men dressed in leather – the sons of watch repair men from Odessa and Orsha, Gomel and Vinnitza – oh, how beautifully, how brilliantly do they master hatred of everything Russian!

    With what a great delight do they physically destroy Russian intelligentsia – officers, engineers, teachers, priests, generals, agronomists, academicians, writers!”

    The American Male.
    King of Pap.
    Satan’s Sap.
    Sack of Crap.

    You deserve it. Why should anybody care about a bunch of useless eaters? There are billions of worthless morons on this planet and you want the elite of the world to care about Americans? That would be highly discriminatory and nonsensical. Americans are subhuman filth.

    We’re laughing at you because no matter what we do to you, you still bow and scrape and fantasize about becoming one of us. You’re biowaste. It’s just that simple.

    Kudos to James2 for telling it like it is. Hitler called Slavs “mud people” and that’s why I’m such a fan of Hitler, because as a “mud person,” I suck up to my superiors.

    There are traitor lists all over the internet. CEOs of corporations that have looted the U.S. treasury of we the people of the united States have their names plastered on their sites, signatories of the PNAC documents are listed, officers of the unconstitutional Federal Reserve and its armed and dangerous (and also unconstitutional) strong arm collection agency known as the IRS, etc., on and on. And we all know who our own “representatives” are in the Senate and Congress and the leaders in the military and at the Pentagon. You only have to start demanding the names of the very well-paid attorneys who have been writing all of the unconstitutional bills which are being passed. The security and bodyguard business should be booming shortly.

    I’m not a coward–the reason why I post on anonymous forums is because I choose to be anonymous. I’d be happy to sign my real name to anything, it’s just that I don’t want to. Out of bravery

    Citizens (lol) Of America. We, the Banking Elite will tend to your needs. You should go turn on your miniature home coliseum box and stay tuned for the lasted distraction to be broadcast. Relax knowing I am managing your fortune wisely putting that money to far better use than you ever could.
