FB comments…the neolithic slave state…does the use of this concept make me an “anarchist” & how is that a bad thing?

thought i w’d archive some of my recent FB comments here.  i had been taking screenshots but realize they are more accessible here.  in some cases, posts & comments are deleted on FB.  i’m hoping that despite that these archived comments will survive.  and when i change computers…which seems to happen every few years, i don’t lose my archived material…  unless…of course… we lose the internet.  i’ll keep adding as i go along…

from August 28 (at bottom) to October 6, 2018…


  • limiting an analysis of women’s oppression to the period of modern capitalism as most marxistas do is tunnel vision. the origins of women’s oppression was the growth of the neolithic (large scale sedentary agriculture) and it’s slave collection state. this began 6-10,000 years ago on various continents.

    though it took 6-10,000 years for early neolithic settlements to metastasize into the modern industrial/agricultural capitalism we’ve seen since the industrial revolution, in all instances where property values became key to large scale ownership of land, the matriarchal family model was forcibly, brutally replaced by the sexual slavery that we call “patriarchy”. imo, it’s necessary to extend our time frame otherwise our analysis is extremely incomplete.

    i know many …not all.. of us are comfortable and prefer “nice”… our concerns for the “other” are neatly parceled. we don’t think it can happen here…

    though it has. the enslavement & genocide that characterized the invasion of this continent began 500 years ago. it was quickly followed by the importing of millions of Africans into slavery for 400 years. the current wave of incarceration & criminalizing of refugees from zones of conflict are causes for great concern. who’s next?

  • Gilberto de Leon commented on Doug Nielson‘s post.
    i know, i know i’m beating a dead horse but “organized” labor bureaucracies have collected millions upon millions of dues from their wage slave membership and failed to do the necessary organizing while showering their favorite slave party with our $. now they’re mouthing “organize” rhetoric to make sure they’re at the head of the parade and remain useful to their slave masters.



there is a difference between hostile participation/ attempted “takeover” of a political party and a friendly “takeover”. in a hostile takeover, a group can run a candidate who if he/she loses, w’d refuse to endorse the eventual winner. in friendly participation….a sheep-dogging operation ala Sanders… a candidate runs, loses and then endorse his/her opponent.

though i w’d be leery of voting in a slave party pr

imary, i c’d see the value of hostile participation. that’s not what we see from Bernie or the DSA…their participation in demi-shit primaries seems genuinely friendly.

this insight …shared by anarchists & marxist-leninists can be expanded to the whole history of the neolithic slave state…in its various incarnations and transformations. we are still living in the neolitihic….settlement society around industrialized agriculture coupled with a slave catching or holding state. over the course of 10,000 years that project has overwhelmed all other cultures, ways of living. these “other” ways are demonized as barbarian, un-civilized, nomadic by the slave empires. in theory, it may be possible to create an egalitarian society based on industrialism. in theory….

this concern for apologies is rhetorical. i understand that while knowing that the slave master’s churches aren’t interested or compelled to apologize to the slaves.


when i first arrived in LA, the mid 1970’s, it had the well-deserved reputation as an anti-union town.

in the late 90’s & first decade of this century that changed…spearheading that change was Unite Here and JOIN unions…hotel service workers & janitors had a high number of Central American immigrants with a high level of political consciousness & organization. some of the same activists that i had associated with in the 1980’s in the anti-war movements around El Salvador & Nicaragua were ctive in these union drives.

at one point, they had a massive march from downtown LA to Century City that had the character of a general strike. supporters all along the way turned out to cheer them on. it was a major turning point for LA labor movement.

  • i thought “we” were the anti-war left…whichever side the “left” took, its main feature seems to be its irrelevance. tragic for the Syrians fighting Assad. and we’ve made a very poor showing in building solidarity. are there explanations for this? yes…
  • Gilberto de Leon replied to his own comment.
    don’t know much about UE though i’ve attended a couple of leftist sponsored events there. do know that the CRFEductors led Chicago Teachers Union supported the demi-can Quinn for re-election. are they supporting Pritzker this go ’round? i also know that my alma mater union, AFSCME gives tens of million of membership dues$ to the demi-shit slave party…doesn’t quite fit in with an un-critical assessment of unions current role.


in the 60’s and after, many of us on the left were very proud of identifying with our “national”, “racial”, “ethnic” identities while at the same time praising “internationalism”. often both seemed legitimately leftist. unless looked at carefully. in most cases, these designations are “imaginary” even if the impetus is “progressive”.

i deeply regret i didn’t read “Imagined Communities” by Benedict Anderson when it was first published. w’d have cleared up some of my confusion.

a few years ago, i learned that one of my comrades in the SL…a very accomplished economist & professor when i knew her in the early to mid 1970’s went on to be part of Jeffrey Sachs team “assisting” the collapsed USSR. she was on the SL’s central committee at the time i left the SL.

no telling where folks will wander after leaving ORO’s (ostensibly revolutionary organizations- an SL term)…


  • when unions were organizing the unorganized industrial working class…yes… since the ouster of the socialists & communists in the late 1940s, 1950s ??? almost without exception, the labor bureaucrats have managed to squat on any labor insurgency while milking the membership like cash cows.

    i have a knee jerk reaction to any politico running in a slave party primary…and unfortunately, that reaction has never been incorrect. there are instances where i’ve said if so and so pushes single payer/ medicare for all, i will cross the class line to vote for them. never had to.

    i think it was Melody Roberts who posted an article from ISR (???) recounting the history of the socialist hostile takeover of the Demi-cans in Minnesota in the 1930’s, 40’s. they w’d run in their primary but refuse to endorse the winner if their class enemy won. DSA has a friendly, kiss-ass takeover where they mainly capture themselves.


  • Gilberto de Leon commented on David I. Walsh‘s post.
    funny but… in actuality, the billionaires have underlings in their slave party to put out the bs that the slaves eat up with a spoon. of course, those of us on the left regard this slave compliance as false consciousness.
  • this from Simcha Fisher’s article: “Hell, I fell for that with Anita Hill. I let them convince me that Clarence Thomas was the savior we needed to put this country to rights, and that this trashy, unhinged woman was just sniffing around him looking for glory, probably paid off by some secret politics operatives to make up a story that didn’t even sound true”.

    i doubt very much that this nomination by Trump will cause his “base” to bolt. the majority of white women voted for him as opposed to the demi-shit. this was especially helpful in the swing states he needed.

    what this will do is motivate the 45-55% of the voters that oppose him.
    this % is unevenly distributed and will not help the dem’s much in the upcoming slave state election.


  • 'Don't forget to register! We're getting close to capacity! We are lucky to have Bill Bianchi walk us through the House bill, HR 676, Expanded & Improved Medicare For All Act.  Bill Bianchi, a member of Jane Addams Senior Caucus, has served on the Illinois Single-Payer Coalition board for over 5 years, and he’s been active in the Single payer movement since 2007. He is helping to develop a comprehensive report on the ramifications of the current healthcare system and single-payer. Bill also served as the state coordinator of Progressive Democrats of America and on the national training team for the Sierra Club. Professionally, Bill has been a high school English teacher and a developer of customized training programs for businesses and nonprofit organizations. He lives in Chicago with wife Judith and two dogs.'

    faith in the demi-shit wing of the slave state’s party… pardon me, the progressive demi-shits…is what has us up a shit creek.

    Obama was for single payer… before he was elected. oh? wasn’t he a progressive demi-shit?

    read article …ISR?… describing socialists hostile takeover of the demi-shit wing of the slave party in the 1930’s. the Farmer-Labor Democratic Party they ran candidates in the slave party primary but refused to endorse their class “enemies”. zounds like DSA wants a “friendly” takeover of a wing of the slave party.🚮

did she endorse Cuomo in November? there goes the hostile takeover of the demi-shit wing of the slave party.



interestingly, Allende promoted Pinochet to chief of staff…😡…that came back killingly…

i now* agree that blocing with the SP against the coup was the only option though clear that no force with similar weight as the Bolsheviks in Russia 1917 existed. they defended the Kerensky govt against the Kornilov putsch and set the stage for their eventual conquest of power in October 1917.

***i say now because i was a member of the SL at the time and we denounced Allende’s govt …not incorrect…but then didn’t give critical support. wasn’t til decades later.that i read Fidel and John Riddell on the issue and agreed.

w’d it have made a difference? NO. even the MIR was caught up in the Pinochet’s sweep and unable to mount an opposition.


outright chattel slavery existed in the uskkka til the mid 19th century…fuedal serfs were sold with the land…the distinctions are legalistic and self serving bs for the slave owning class.

we’ve had several socialist & communist internationals that claimed to be the int’l party of the working class. in both cases, the leading parties distorted their original mission to their own purposes. in the case of command party slave states after riding a revolutionary wave, they create a replacement slave owning class…based on necessity…of course.

“leadership from below” …isn’t that the original description of an egalitarian movement and society that the anarchist and early socialists advocated?

i’m not informed enough to choose among the various anarchist tendencies…like the command party advocates, they are legion…but after reading a bit on the origin of the neolithic slave states, i agree that the main nexus for slavery…chattel or wage… is the slave state based on large scale, now industrialized agriculture and it’s ambition to enslave all and dominate the planet.


“capitalism’ isn’t the first slave state society…those have existed for 6-10,000 years. the main function of early settlement states (neolithic) was to capture slaves to do the drudge work of large scale agriculture. up until recently, slave states didn’t dominate the entire earth…they did claim it…no longer true…there is no frontier/ no-state lands to which the slaves can go Maroon.

unfortunately, the command party states (doftheP, state capitalist whatever?) have shown us it won’t be the last slave state…the wealthy reproduce themselves very nicely at the expense of a new set of slaves. on and on it goes…

the slave owning class has always been philanthropic…🤗


  • thought the left i identified with could be described as the “anti imperialist left”… a problem… among many… with this left is its current ineffectiveness.

    other than FB posts and the occasional demo, I do not contribute much to the solution. right now it seems that the soft socialists and sheep dogs of the demi-shits have the field to themselves.

    thankfully, in this mix, the pro Assad, pro Putin sliver of the left isn’t very effective either.



counter intuitive for the slave state masters to tolerate, assist the slaves even the most irrelevant of say so in its affairs…

    as a “marxista” I was pledged to the class struggle. realized there was a prehistory to that model but it was near irrelevant and barely worth considering. Lately, i’ve realized that hunanoids have been around for hundreds of thousands years… the neolithic slave states co evolved with agriculture and are 6-10,000 years old… modern slave states are the continuation not the originators of depravation and oppression. Most of humanoid history is the struggle to escape slave states.


  • Gilberto de Leon commented on Doug Nielson‘s post.

    humanoids aren’t the only creatures that co evolved with neolithic slave agriculture…rodents, weeds, insects and microbial parasites came along… conditions were ideal…they were fruitful and multiplied. these 3…4 if you throw in potatoes are responsible for the many diseases that affect humanoids.

    don’t know what the solution may be… It’s a dilemma 6-10,000 years in the making and it has chained earthlings into an impasse.

    earth will abide. Humanoids?

    we, along with most folks, call it a war but it was a combination occupation, suppression of a long running liberation struggle, involvement in a civil war among the Vietnamese. had many elements. after 500 plus were killed in this one village, amerikkkanos went on to kill 10 million or more folks in Southeast Asia. the Vietnamese may forgive…i don’t.

    pathetic. sad. likely voted for one of the slave state parties. as Biko said “the most powerful weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed”.
    • the Bolsheviks did not call themselves the “communist party” until after October 1917.

      the various socialist groups including the Bolsheviks were active in the Russian workers and soldiers movement and though not at the head of the provisional government, were active in the worker and city wide organizations and council’s (soviets).

      revolutions are those rare instances when ordinary folk push the formerly powerful out of the fucken way and begin to make decisions on their own.
      the tragedy of most uprisings of the chattel or wage slaves is that if not crushed militarily, they rarely… never so far… achieve the egalitarian, dignified vision that guided them in the beginning or in their ideology.

      though i’m no longer a command party activist, I don’t minimize the role of the command/communist party in creating mega industrialized, super repressive slave states…these mega slave states are market capitalist slave states’ wet dreams.

      many European and amerikkkan engineers, agricultural architects, planners worked with the Russian Soviet government on mega slave farm and factory projects.

      • Peggy Hotes James C Scott “Against the Grain” & “Seeing like a State”. Richard Manning (also titled) “Against the Grain, how agriculture has hijacked civilization”… which i’m currently reading. have to admit i am drawn to this thesis by my misgivings on command party slave states.

        i now use that phraseology to describe a project i and many others hoped to create.

        my initial starting point was… probably…Martin Buber’s “Paths to Utopia”. at that point, i realized, that like many other traditions of thought, Marxism, Leninism, Trotskyism, Maoism, Fidelismo were narrowly self referential and self justifying.

        these authors are explicitly or implicitly anarchist.

        i am not familiar enough with the anarchist tendencies… as in the xian and communist traditions they are legion…to identify with a chosen one. i do identify with the “crude” post civil war anarchist workers movement that culminated with the Haymarket martyrs and IWW prior to WW1.

        a mind exercise? a dead end? Probably. Practical? if the only way out of slave state slavery is the collapse of the slave states…???

        the books I’ve been reading point out that for much of humanoid history… until recently & overlapping much of what’s identified as the neolithic… the majority of the humanoids lived beyond the authority of the slave states.

        very few people are now beyond the slave state’s domination.

        I apologise for the long…for Fb … response.

      • Gilberto de Leon commented on Peggy Hotes‘s post.


        lately, i’ve been reading on the transition from Paleolithic lifestyle to settled agriculture and neolithic slave state slavery and realized that the socialist, communist left that i have identified with all my adult life narrows “relevant” humanoid history to the beginnings of industrialization and the bourgeois revolutions of the late 18th century. Some marxistas reach back to mercantile capitalism, city states of the 13th, 14th centuries in europe.

        the neolithic slave states of Asia, Africa, the amerikkkas and Europe are the origin and model for the now all encompassing, militarily overwhelming modern slave states.

        this is a 6-10,000 years perspective that posits that the primitive neolithic slave state’s mission of control and expropriate defines the modern slave state.

        Freedom? in the past, only the collapse of slave states set the captives free.

      • Gilberto de Leon commented on Peggy Hotes‘s post.

        don’t think this is a “union” campaign. one problem with appeals like this… not linked to actual fight back efforts of the wage slaves involved.

        Marxistas need to look much further back than the industrial revolution for the origin of the slave state and its false consciousness.

        Com’on, Earl…as a long time leftie, you know that wage slaves have always been under assault of the slave state masters…in amerikkka, imo, the workers movement led by anarchists, socialist and other left organizations dates to the end of the “civil war”…

        i think the first general pstrike, initiated by a railroad strike was in 1876. at that time, the slave masters w’d simply reduce the wages of their employees to make up for any loss in profits… they learned that this provoked even the most backward elements of our class to join the fight back. Much less expensive to have bargaining agreements and a corrupted, demi-shit loving labor bureaucracy.

      • Gilberto de Leon commented on Dennis Brasky‘s post.

        the SWP & YSA that i was aligned with kept their distance from these demos. Considered them back door support for McCarthy… though we were later very active in defense of Bobby Seale and the Conspiracy 7.

        despite the admonitions of veteran comrades, many of the younger YSA’ers went to Lincoln Park and the demos in Grant Park to get our fill of tear gas.

        some, like my brother, Tony went with Dick Gregory on his March to the Amphitheatre. He was a bit crazier than me…and a way better street fighter.

      • Gilberto de Leon commented on Eric Draitser‘s post.

        Started reading the first few paragraphs… I’ll pass on the rest.

        though i have a word of caution.. remember when a family that ran a children’s care center in California were accused of slaughtering giraffes to scare children into silence…put those folks in jail… until courts realized how group think can work “miracles”.

        Gilberto de Leon commented on Melody Roberts‘s post.

        the domestication of animals went hand in glove with the enslavement of labor for agriculture. the origin, DNA of the modern and future slave states is in that transition from hunter gatherers to neolithic slaves. no Paleolithic tribe ever gave up its nomad, barbarian lifestyle to slave for the new lords of agricultural accumulation.

        the command party advocates claim that their mega slave state will free the slaves… an insidious fantasy that the cause of the problem will be the solution. only the collapse of the slave states will set the captives free.

A short account of the Deep History of State Evasion by James C. Scott & my comments


been reading James C. Scott’s books on the slave raiding, trading and coerced labor origins & character of the state… the rise of states is co-terminus with the rise of large scale agriculture & settlements in pockets of europe, the middle east, Asia, Africa & the amerikkkas prior to european colonization.  his retelling makes clear that the european slave trade w’d not have been possible without a long history of slave capturing & trading not just in Africa but throughout the world.  often non-state groups main form of inter action with the state was to exchange slaves for food or worked goods.

i began with Against the Grain…a deep history of the earliest states.  currently reading Seeing like a state…how certain schemes to improve the human condition have failed.

first an aside

a couple of years ago, i happened on a novel by Mario Vargas Llosa called el hablador.

“el hablador” translates into english as the talker but has the connotation of liar. the narrator recounts the story of a fellow anthropology student. a young man from a Jewish background who in the course of the story sheds his euro-centered identity and adopts the identity of the aboriginals he was studying.

the “hablador” among the aboriginals is a man who takes on the role of traveling from small group to small group…though of the tribe, these groups are isolated from each other…the major link between them is the “hablador” who listens to the latest news of each family group…gossip, hardships, deaths, marriages, births, movements, etc. he relates what he’s heard from other groups he’s visited and then moves on.  a major element of the story is that these groups’ isolated existence is motivated by their aversion to the euro-colonialist…their way of life, their labor demands, their greed for land & resources and especially their diseases. i had not read Scott’s work at that time but the story gives a narrative version of Scott’s thesis.


hopefully, readers of this blog share my interest in the origin and character of the state.

Scott begins his presentation with a quote:  “it is said that the history of people who have a history is the history of class struggle.  it might be said with at least as much truthfulness, that the history of peoples without history is the history of their struggle against the state.”  from having read Against the Grain, this struggle is mainly the struggle to avoid the grasp of states’ need for coerced labor, conscription, sexual slavery & contagious diseases.

he then gives the gist of the author of that quote, Pierre Clastres who suggested that “what anthropologists had thought of as stone age, primitive people were in fact, ex-sedentary cultivators who took up foraging and hunting in order to escape forced labor and the diseases associated with the Spanish (unintelligible) and that they devised a social structure & subsistence practice that kept them away from states and prevented states from arising among them.”  (note:  i haven’t read any material by Clastres.  will do so and if interesting blog about it.)

the information that Scott provides and his conclusions about the origins and nature of states calls into question the view of advocates of state socialism (mainly Marxist-Leninists) that in order to obtain our desired relationships among humans…equality, fraternity, liberty, from each according to their ability, to each according to their need that we would need to create a “worker’s state”, “dictatorship of the proletariat”, five-ten-20 year-never ending industrial development plans guided by “the” vanguard party.

from the framework provided by Scott, i can ask some seemingly awkward but actually sly questions.

if the slave raiding, capturing and holding nature of the state is its main characteristic, its DNA… Lenin referred to the state as an “armed body of men” whose purpose is to crush any opposition to the ruling class whose bidding it is doing…then why do we imagine that creating a more intensive, aggressive, intrusive, repressive state will carry us to liberty, equality, fraternity???

this assertion runs counter to the result seen in Russia, eastern Europe, China, North Korea, Cuba.

state building, creation, existence is the problem not the solution.  Engels, Lenin and the anarchists suggest that in a truly democratic and egalitarian society, there would need to be the administration of things but not a state, armed bodies of men that w’d exist apart from the governed.

Lenin was accused by other bolsheviks of having gone over to the anarchist view of the state when he stated everyone w’d participate in the governance of things in his most democratic minded formulations in the state and revolution.

when in power, the Bolsheviks and later communists, w’d govern on a militaristic, pyramid models of decision making in which centralized decision makers …their own membership and leadership bodies… made decisions and the toiling classes followed these directives.

no successful governing model, entity is a completely closed circle.  one could join the ruling party and work one’s way up the pyramid.  and some very skillful, charismatic folks did just that.  of course, these societies quickly became as stratified as the hierarchies they had displaced.

for the vast majority of the population, discipline or prison were the understood alternatives.  the new boss looked very much like the old boss.  perhaps in different uniforms, with different lingo.

what is to be done?

we cannot return to pre-neolithic times…for one thing as Scott points out states have metastasized and now occupy what was once “frontier” …most of earth’s space.  states have pushed ever deeper into the zones of escape.  areas once open to  the barbarians, nomads, escaped slaves, defeated peoples have been closed.  genocide.  disease.  displacement have taken their toll.

the never ending wars among these slave states have destroyed the infrastructure of the losers (& at times the winners) which is the story of the current middle east, Africa & the resulting massive displacement of peoples with no asylum.

is there a way that we can share in the advances of science, technology, infrastructure and realize our utopian dreams?

no one author, activist, blogger can offer a sure fire solution to this dilemma.

let’s take into account the obvious. if we allow a state apparatus to usurp decision making the result is the state will be our slave master.

Lenin & his progeny made a virtue of central planning & decision making at the expense of direct decision making by the toiling classes…in factories, industries, communities, local representative bodies.  the designated “higher” levels gained veto power over local decision making.  this is the history of the period following the 1917 Revolutions.  oppositions outside the Bolsheviks were suppressed a few months after October.  in 1921, the Bolsheviks banned factions within their own party while suppressing an Anarchist revolt in Kronstadt.  later anyone the slightest out of step with the inner circle was sidelined, jailed or slaughtered.

the entire repressive apparatus of the capitalist states the Bolsheviks claimed they had replaced were recreated and super-charged. Russia went from being the “prison house of nations” under the Tsar to being a massive prison house of its own citizens.  a modern nation slave state.

the solution to the slave-state intolerance of democracy , local decision making is (i thinks) obvious:

advocate for the fullest levels of direct, local decision making.  adopt the rule of the Paris Commune, immediate recall of any elected or appointed public official & extremely high standards & strict term limits for some duties…especially for police duties.  the administration of things not people.

a ridiculous objection

i’ve heard some ridiculous objections to this by otherwise very intelligent Marxists.  one was by David Harvey …and recently at the ISO’s Socialist Conference by Todd Chretien at a session where i questioned the forever character of the dofduP… they both asked by way of analogy, if we w’d get on a plane flown by committee instead of an experienced pilot?  that’s just plain bizzare.

if corporate for profit airlines can staff their flight crews with trained & reasonably experienced pilots, i don’t see where that w’d be a problem when the administration of things is the guiding principle.  policies w’d be set by the widest possible circle of folks involved in that enterprise while direct operation of machinery w’d be assigned to those with known skills and knowledge.  the necessity of expertise in many areas would still operate, be acknowledged as a practical need.

folks w’d not lose their capacity to reason simply because they are now making their own effective decisions.

this ridiculous objection translates into only slave state style directives can manage an airline or other complex operation.  i don’t think so.

often folks who are directly involved in production are key to advances in production.  that was certainly the case prior to state usurpation of the landscape and has continued to be the case for the last 10,000 years in which states have dominated.  in fact, this sense that working folks can determine their own conditions, make their own decisions is the driving element for the socialist, anarchist movements.

interestingly, Scott has a chapter on practical knowledge which he calls by it’s Greek name, Metis in Seeing like a State.

Some guiding Dichos, Man to Man about You Know who, Famous Last Words & Ay, tu…Los Buenos Dichos —four short sections of the Maldixos

6 5 2018.   these short sections are the last to be culled from the 2001 MD’s.  i edited the raw Dichos for format or punctuation purposes.  the entire collection is now in category titled MalDichos.  i don’t pretend that there are redeeming qualities in taking a non-censorship attitude and allowing vulgar, gender insensitive Dixos to pass into the public realm…but….in my defense, i’ll take Jimi Hendrix’s statement when asked why he played…though i would say destroyed the slave anthem? …. fuck it.  i’m an american.


some guiding dichos

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are underlings.       – W Shakespeare Julius Ceasar

Let us waste no time in sterile litanies and nauseating mimicry. Leave this Europe where they are never done talking of Man, yet murder men everywhere they find them, at the corner of every one of their own streets, in all the corners of the globe.                                             -Jean Paul Sartre’s preface to Frantz Fanon’s The Wretched of the Earth

It is the system itself that, that is incapable of producing freedom for the twenty-two million Afro-Americans. Just like a chicken can’t lay a duck egg because the system of the chicken isn’t constructed in the way to produce a duck egg. And just as that chicken system can’t produce, is not capable of producing a duck egg, the political and economic system of this country is absolutely incapable of producing freedom and justice and equality and human dignity for the twenty-two million Afro-Americans … and if a chicken was to produce a duck egg, it would be considered a revolutionary chicken.”            -Malcolm X

“I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the system of exploitation. I believe that there will be that kind of clash but I don’t think it will be based on the color of the skin.”      -Malcolm X

Your Honor, years ago I recognized my kinship with all living beings, and I made up my mind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on earth. I said then, and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it, and while there is a criminal element I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.   – Eugene Debs statement on being convicted of sedition for opposing WW1.  September 18, 1918


Man to Man about you know who……

Women think that we should bathe at reasonable intervals, every day if possible.                    I thought they were suppose to like the way we smell?

The personal is political.  Everything is personal.

The only person you’ll scare away is your future ex-husband.

The idea that you could possibly be happy without them makes them cringe.  They don’t like to have their game called for the bluff it happens to be.  They want us to continue thinking that we need them.

Don’t hang out with them, it only lowers your intelligence….oh….and makes your tongue hang out.

No bitch can be my friend…I got enough trouble as it is.

Let no B write my epitaph.

What was that?  If the bitches had hooks, what would you do?  -Mr. SK’s question

If they’re the weaker sex, how come they have us by the balls?  How come, my man????

Nothing sadder than a man looking for some lost pussy he can’t find:  “I know I left it right here….fuck, did it grow legs and walk away.”                                                                               -a voice in the B wilderness (banned in the Ciudad)

She’s just too weird for me.                                                                                                                 -the monster puts a brutal, perhaps dishonest face-saver on rejection

Nature has given women so much power that the law very wisely has given them very little.     -Dr Johnson…exactly what was this old boy a “doctor” of?

A man may pass through a barrage of cannon fire with less damage to his character than through a squabble with a nagging wife.         –GB Shaw

 To marry a second time represents the triumph of hope over experience.   -Dr Johnson

A bitch with no teats might as well kill herself.       -Minnesota Fred

More than a mouthful’s just a waste.                        -Minnesota Fred

There’s an extradition order out for her nose:  get out of town and take your big nazz with you.                 -speaking of Celine Dion #1

Why does she carry two Canadian passports…one for herself and one her nose.                                                   -speaking of Celine Dion #2

There were four of us at the table/ me, you and your big feet.                                                           -Fats Waller Your Feets Too big

don’t give ’em your real name.    – advice from Fats Waller

Most of the time, we act weak.  That’s what the B’s want.                                                                        GdL:  sure…keep telling yourself “i’m not weak, i’m only acting..”

Nothin’ more fun than spending $.  Women take it to a higher level:  Nothing more fun than spending your money, honey.

Sometimes, I’m passive…mostly I’m willful…and I like it like that.

You’re too young for me…I need an ohhhhhld lady…someone who’s slower than I am.                             -perhaps i am too old

the sky is crying…Palestinian nurse Razan al-Najjar murdered June 1, 2018

Razan al-Najjar murderered by Israeli snipers 6 1 2018

On 14 May 1948, the day before the expiration of the British Mandate, David Ben-Gurion, the head of the Jewish Agency, declared “the establishment of a Jewish state in Eretz-Israel, to be known as the State of Israel.” (Wikipedia).

i was born later that same month…unfortunately, i’ve grown old and angry as the bodies of Palestinians piled up to the sky.  the sky is crying.  (phrase borrowed from blues song done by Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, others)

Los Dichos del Mentiroso (@ section of the MalDichos and other MadDixos for a Troubled world)

been editing, re arranging, adding phrases that change character of some of these old dixos.  think…not 100% sure that these came from 2001 version  of the Maldichos and other Mad-Dixos for a Troubled World.   few prurient or sexploitative dixos are in this section though there are more than a handful that can be regarded as “politically incorrect” or culturally, gender insensitive  there is some overlap with other sections.  some favoritos i repeat.  i’m a bit tired of my admonition to NOT READ ON if you retain the capacity to be offended by verbal twists & turns.  these are “fiction”, perhaps nostalgia not biography…though if the shoe fits?  …i wear it.  what do you do, sir? or madam?


here’s one of the only two jokes i know…

heard Gilbert Gottfried tell this joke but now can’t find the ytube video.  if i do, i’ll insert a link.  here’s my version:

Mr. M***  is in a rush to get home to his plush outskirts of NYC home.  there’s tons of traffic on the turnpike but he’s in a hurry, so he rushes off at an exit he thinks will get him to a shortcut he’s used before.

it turns out to be a two way frontage road.  there’s some cars goin’ too slow for him in front of him & he decides to pass them on the left.

crossing over just before a bend in the road…on the other side there’s an 18 wheel truck hauling timber barreling down the frontage road.  our man, Mr. M**** meets him head on going 50-60 miles.  his car is crushed like a tin can & knocked into a deep ravine.

15, 20 minutes later the fire department & ambulances arrive.  takes another 20 minutes to extricate him from the near unrecognizable car.  he’s rushed to a hospital.  another 20-30 minutes.  on the way, the crew is able to identify Mr. M**** and the hospital calls his wife.

she’s at home with her daughter.  the two of them rush to the hospital.  they arrive 90 minutes later.  they provide details on the husband.  insurance information.  they’re told to wait.  the husband is being treated in a high tech emergency care unit & the doctor will be out to see them as soon as he’s treated the husband.  they wait.

30 minutes.  they ask again.  are told to wait.

30 minutes later, a doctor in bloodied smock shambles down the hall.  smoking a cigarette.  they’re shocked…it’s a non smoking area.  he comes over to them with a smile on his face…they’re hopeful, relieved, not sure.

the doctors sees they’re the only ones in the hospital’s emergency care waiting room and goes directly to them while lighting another ciggie.  they hold their breath.  he asks if they’re related to Mr. M****.  they respond yes.  wife & daughter.

he breathes outs slowly.  cigarette smoke fills the waiting room corner they’re in.

I’m sorry.  Mr. M**** was in a real serious auto accident.  he’s suffered all kinds of trauma & injuries.  we can’t even begin to repair him.  the truck rolled him up like a human enchilada and shoved what was left of his car into 100 foot ravine.  his car careened down taking out trees & shrubs, smashing boulders…well… not a good thing.  i would like to spare you seein’ what was left of him…

in any case, the doctor continued, that’s not the most serious thing i have to tell you.  the cost of treatment, trauma care nowadays is huuuuuge.  it will ravage your savings and then come for whatever you own, home, cars, furnishings.  whatever equity you have in your home will go for multiple hospital surgeries, very expensive medications…pain killers, steroids, ant-biotics…shit, the list goes on for pages… physical therapy which is mainly goin’ through the motions.  he’ll never return to work.  may never recognize you or speak again.

forget about the relationship you’ve built up over the years.  and yet, your financial obligations will never end…they have a name for it.  medical bankruptcy.  if your daughter is in college…she can quit now.  daddy won’t be making next year’s tuition.  she’ll have to get a mediocre job in a government or some other dead end office to help pay daddy’s hospitalization bill.

oh, i know…you’re thinking but we have good health insurance….the doctor snorted and laughed… the 20% deductible will still eat up your savings & home.

you…nodding towards the wife…will have to quit your job…career? to take care of him at home.  a thankless, never ending & unpaid job.  that’s in addition to hiring caretakers to assist you…for the most part not paid by insurance.  and you won’t be eligible for assistance until you relinquish your assets.

you and your daughter …pausing as he looked them over with a studied glance… may even have to pimp yourselves out to make ends meet.   no telling what kind of nightmares you’ll encounter there.

your own health will suffer and by then your own health insurance will be a thing of the distant past.  no insurance company would give you a policy that w’d cover the costs of this and your own illnesses.  he might survive for a while …long enough to drag both of you down into a living hell.  the standard of living you’ve enjoyed up until now will be a bitter memory.

forget about your pets…you’ll hardly have enough to buy  meals for yourself or keep your single room apartment heated.  a short, bitter, withered life.

he lit another cigarette.  blew out smoke very slowly and watched their reaction.

by this time, the wife and daughter’s anguish has turned into loud sobbing & tears. oh, god they’re screaming.  but no one pays attention.

then smiling through the clenched cigarette…the bloody smocked doctor claps his hands…they’re startled by this.  he’s shaking his head left & right as if saying no, no, no.

then reaching out, he takes their hands in his and says I was only fucking with you…He’s dead.

perhaps it’s a vaca-pata thing?

It could be a social disease … everything is… without a doubt.

I don’t think it’s physico-biological…so it must a be mental.

Why would I be a Boston (Red Sox) fan?                                                                                      What am I?   insane? crazeeeee?  What am I?  an idiot?  What am I?  stupid?  am i a sicko?  a drunkard?  a psychopath?  a lazeeeeee ass FBI agent?  (reference to Boston Marathon backpack of nails.  The FBI had interviewed the dead terrorist 20 times, then forgot the spelling of his name?  sure.  yeah.  i believe ’em.  way to go.)   –  not a BRSox fan dixo

Ain’t nothin’ you can do in a riot…except join in.

My needs are now so un-natural…no woman would put up with me.

It is better to keep quiet and have folks think you’re ignorant…Than to open your mouth and have folks know you’re ignorant.

Deja Vu…….all over again.   -Yogi Berra commenting on something eerily similar:

Everybody’s having them dreams
Everybody sees themselves walkin’ around with no one else
Half of the people can be part right all of the time
Some of the people can be all right part of the time
But all of the people can’t be all right all of the time

What should be is a dirty lie!!!    

the right to say "fuck" is freedom of speech                                                                                                              what can i say?  i feel compelled to honor Lenny Bruce.  in June 1965 i graduated from Lane Tech & was headed to Loop City College that fall.  my mother, an immigrant single parent had very little resources & 6 kids to take care of.  we knew nothing about higher education.  that summer i had my first steady job & saw a copy of Lenny’s How to talk dirty & influence people and another of his comedy routines.  they were a revelation.  of course, by this point he was never on tv.  he passed away the following year at the age of 41.  perhaps the M-dixos are my way of following in his footsteps…though i never stepped on a comedy stage.  thank you Lenny.

my usual warning:  don’t continue to read if you’re offended by verbal humor.  i try not to censor these.  very few contain what folks call scatological or puerile elements.  they do reflect my own cynical, sarcastic bent of humor.
