$52 million dollars a day. That’s how much tax money gets sucked out of Americans’ pockets to pay for NASA’s whopping $19 billion annual budget.
But folks, things are about to get a whole lot worse.
On Monday, Trump officially announced the creation of a “Space Force” which he described as “separate but equal” to the Air Force.
Remember, Donald “I’ll balance the budget” Trump? So much for that.
We can only speculate the astronomical costs of establishing this sci-fi fantasy, but the implications are massive.
Military Industrial Complex? What about the Military Cosmological Complex?
Houston, we have a problem. I can already see the arms manufacturers—Lockheed Martin, Boeing, and all the usual suspects—salivating at the thought of some real-life Star Wars.
What does an X-Wing sell for? Lightsabers? Or how about a Death Star?!?
Meanwhile, poor old Elon Musk is trying to scratch up some funds to send his private, boring space company into the stars—all while Trump can snap his fingers and suck the cash right out of Americans’ pockets.
No wonder Musk came out on Twitter last week announcing he’s an anarchist!
But is there a more sinister motive behind Trump’s space farce?
Is this just a grand illusion by the Emperor to misdirect the masses from real-world, down-to-earth issues that directly affect us?
Of course it is.
Historically, space has been regularly used to distract the public from the state’s atrocities. Back in the 1970’s, when gold was de-linked from the dollar by Richard “I’m not a crook” Nixon, the promise of exploring the stars kept people blissfully ignorant of the complete financial ruin coming their way.
They had to fake playing golf on the moon numerous times to divert the public’s attention away from that.
And, to distract from the bloody, costly, evil terrorist attacks known as the Vietnam War.
What could the “Space Force” be attempting to distract us from today? We can start with the obvious answer, that is, the impending dollar collapse, which will in essence invalidate the state itself—all while cryptocurrencies continue their meteoric rise.
It’s not rocket science, it’s math. The US government cannot avoid the consequences of their destructive central-planning for much longer.
But perhaps this is NASA’s final death throe. Over the years, NASA has seemed to escape public criticism and scrutiny—even from libertarian and anarchist types who love harping about government incompetence.
It’s as if we assume NASA—since it’s engaged with “science”—must be doing a good, wholesome job.
But if the state can’t even maintain roads well, how can they be trusted meddling in space?
It’s been half a century since they seemingly went to the moon—yet still no moon base, or at least a return mission? In fact, they now say they “destroyed the technology” to go back to the moon.
Because, yeah, technology was so advanced in 1969.
It’s apparent that all this Space Force nonsense is just another elaborate statist distraction—a tax scam at best—keeping the masses inspired about the heavens so they remain good little worker-slaves.
It’s like the bread and circuses of the Roman era: feed the masses some sports (and a little bit of space) and they’ll never rebel.
Oh, and make sure to spy on, oppress and enslave all humans in the process, while they pay for it and even cheer for it as the global subjugation system is built.
I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see it! You can’t make this stuff up.
Well, politicians can keep doing what they’re doing (stealing and killing), and we, the peaceful people of Earth, will keep fighting the good fight.
As NASA’s budget inflates, whether you like it or not, the attendance numbers at Anarchapulco continue to grow—but we didn’t need to point guns at anyone!
The real leaders of the free world will converge again on the beaches of Acapulco, Mexico in February for the largest gathering of freethinkers.
Anarchapulco 2019 is the place to be if you’re interested in a true bright future for humanity. Tickets are now available for a discounted price, but the special offer ends on July 31, so BOOK NOW.
As Dr. Ron Paul, who will be speaking again at Anarchapulco 2019, famously said, “I don’t think we should go to the moon. I think we maybe should send some politicians up there.”
Send them all—one-way ticket.
