In the blogosphere a single picture is sometimes worth a thousand posts.
In the first post of this series Dredd Blog introduced the notion of MOMCOM.
We used the acronym MOMCOM to stand for an amalgamation of all things militant-military, all things hydrocarbon, and all things media.
Dredd Blog observes that this entity MOMCOM is in the engineer's seat on the train civilization is riding to its demise.
Currently, the minions of MOMCOM in the U.S. Congress are looking for more money for more wars, more propaganda, and more oil.
As the cartoon shows, like the bully on the school-yard, MOMCOM plans to take the "lunch money" from those who need it most, the elderly, the poor, and the infirm.
Dredd Blog saw the politics of this fiasco emerging long before it became the latest ad nauseum phase in the media portion of MOMCOM.
In posts like Deja Vu - Guns v. Butter Election Looms and Your Health Is Their Number 1 Enemy, we pointed out in advance the way MOMCOM would dumb down the domestic political debate with a specific purpose in mind.
In The Peak of The Oil Wars series we show how MOMCOM puts imperialism to work to keep the oil addiction at the forefront of the existence of civilization by taking control of oil through worldwide militant imperialism.
Much more recently in Triage: Still In Deep Water we remembered Deepwater Horizon, a mere side effect of the oil addiction driven oil wars, and how that is perverting government into a selfish, self-serving, and utterly dangerous meme complex.
As to the media portion of MOMCOM, in the post GE Serves The Pentagon On TV Near Yoo, following that long-ago post, we noticed recently that GE is trying to hide its propaganda engine, even removing pages from its website, running from history, but not successfully hiding from history.
We have followed MOMCOM down to the DNA in the series A Closer Look At MOMCOM DNA, and we conclude that MOMCOM was "born" just after The Peak of Sanity.
A bleak future of continual demise into the oblivion of the middle class, and eventually the oblivion of civilization itself, contemporaneously with the ascension, then full-on takeover of all-things-government by MOMCOM minions.
