According to Pico, Anaya's descriptions in Bless Me Ultima shows the type of operant conditioning that is perfectly aligned with the Order's agenda of dumbing down the masses through routinized conditioning like that inherent in the Roman Catholic sacramental system and the Mariology that supports it.
Pico was asked, "But Clive James in an interview with Bill Moyers argued rather convincingly that the world needs the U.S. if for no other reason than to come to the aid of the world when some despot like Saddam Hussein or Assad throws humanity to the wind, don't you think James' is right?"
"James is describing the U.S. before 1833. After 1833 the U.S. has been at war with itself and its best self is losing. Consider that the American Civil War was not fought for the abolition of slavery, but to use the high moral ground of Abolitionism to fund the Order and their railroad across the U.S. to the Pacific where their China Trading opium dealers could profit from their dirty dealing. This legacy survives to this day and a window on this reality is seen in the Iran-Contra fiasco and the outing by Barry Seal and others in the Contra-cocaine connection to the poisoning of inner city poor. It's not Sarin, but it's in the same family and more profitable over time. No, if James was correct....and he uses the Yanks' aiding Australia during World War II to support his conclusion, but if he were correct and the U.S. should take out despots for gassing their own people, George Herbert Walker Bush would have killed Saddam in the first Gulf War. You must always remember that Vannevar Bush was responsible for much of America's Manhattan Project and used Dresser Industries' pumps extensively in the cooling towers needed in the harnessing of nuclear energy. Neil Mallon, for whom Neil Mallon Bush is named was head of Dresser for decades and gave GWB his first job. When Harry Truman said "the buck stops here," he didn't know what he was talking about. The decision to let Hirohito survive while vaporizing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians is what the Order's power elites do best. Why? Because they thrive on nurturing a brutal imperialistic inner circle of like-minded bastards who help to spread the wealth around after the war and share the buried booty. As Sterling Seagraves' The Gold Warriors has shown, Hirohito's Pacific Rim booty wasn't fully commandeered by the Order until the Philippine's Ferdinand Marcos gave it up after it was hidden there as American troops advanced on Japan in 1945. Nope. If Clive James was correct, the U.S. would have acted more like Oliver Cromwell....not opposed to loping off the head of the emperor," said Pico, "but they would have also done it to the Shah of Iran for his brutality. Harry Truman, the haberdashery owner from Missouri? He didn't make the decision to scapegoat the civilians and to spare the little grizzly Japanese sun god all by himself. Meanwhile the plundered wonder when they will get their gold back. Ayn Rand said 'achievement without plunder', but that idea is not in the Order's vocabulary."
Pico noted that when during World War II a handful of Germans knew that Hitler had to go and that the Generals were too corrupted to do it themselves, the Colonels....."You know the not yet rotten apples floating around in the putrefied and rotting barrel, rose to the occasion. The same was true of an American Colonel named Theodore "Ted" Westhusing, the American Von Stauffenberg, who confronted General Petraeus in the Green Zone after he discovered just how screwed up things were in Iraq and just how the U.S. was at war with itself," said Pico referring to the first chapter of Christian T. Miller's book Blood Money . "This is the world that Karl Rove knows and loves and whatever he thought he was saying in declaring his love of Borges, I'll be damned if it's not really, really obvious," said Pico.
Pico noted that Edwin Black's research had traced the direct aide to Germany by American industrialists that paralleled the direct capitalization of the Soviet Union through exported technological transfers which were the point of Anthony Sutton's trilogy on the subject that was verified as accurate by Zbigniew Brezezinski and summarized in Sutton's book National Suicide.
Pico ruminated. "Since 1833 you Americans aren't in Kansas anymore. Rove? He's in Bavaria of the 1930's!"
