Just 100 Companies Sign Humanity's Death Sentence
September 13, 2022

Only 100 companies will sign humanity’s death sentence. That’s it. One hundred corporate boards filled with sociopaths. But I’ll get back to that in a moment.

Not long ago climate activists in New York City jammed up foot traffic on Wall Street with a die-in, covering themselves in fake blood and lying on the ground. Other activists in Washington, D.C., blocked intersections using a variety of tactics, gridlocking traffic and pissing off a lot of people. It seems clear that when it comes to our impending extinction, practically no one cares unless it means they have to sit in traffic for 10 extra minutes. Apparently there is nothing that upsets Americans more than being stuck in their car, moving at a negative MPH, completely unable to get to the jobs they fucking hate.

And that’s why those are the types of protests that matter — the ones that interrupt the flow of capitalism, not the colorful marches where we all show up for two hours while the politicians we’re ostensibly trying to influence go play golf. I’m not saying don’t get involved in the friendly marches — I’m just saying our rulers don’t care that you did. It’s like when you dress up your baby in a costume: I’m not saying you have to stop, but you’re only doing it for yourself. The ruling elite, like your baby, don’t actually care.

But since I aim to please, here’s a point for those of you who don’t give a shit about the climate crisis. The corporations that are screwing up your life, tainting your water, polluting your air, buying up your favorite coffee shop and turning it into a gas station, sucking your tax dollars up through subsidies, and all the while paying their employees a warm can of farts per hour—those corporations are the same ones creating the climate catastrophe.

In fact, The Guardian reported that just 100 companies are responsible for 71% of global greenhouse gas emissions. These include:

Silencing Democracy: The Threat of Centralized Censorship

The digital age has brought about a significant transformation in how we communicate and share information. However, it has also presented new challenges in the form of misinformation and Disinformation. While it offers unprecedented access to knowledge, it also makes it more challenging to distinguish truth from falsehood. This article aims to delve into the complexities of these challenges, the structures that perpetuate them, and the democratic ideals at stake.

Information (the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly:
Censorship has an inexorable link with Misinformation, Disinformation, and Malinformation in insidious ways. Governments and institutions often use the spread of misinformation and Disinformation as a pretext to implement censorship, arguing that controlling or restricting certain content is necessary to safeguard the public. However, such censorship measures can also be selective and biased, shielding those in power and suppressing dissent. Malinformation, which ...

The 239 Times The US Gov't Tested Bioweapons on Americans
That's right - We're the guinea pigs.

The 239 Times The US Gov't Tested Bioweapons on Americans

This is a chapter from Lee Camp's new e-book "Dangerous Ideas".


One thing you’ll certainly never hear from the mainstream media is that the U.S. has an impressively prodigious history of the American people provably being used as lab rats by our own government. For example, as reported at Business Insider, “On September 20, 1950, a US Navy ship just off the coast of San Francisco used a giant hose to spray a cloud of microbes into the air and into the city’s fog. The military was testing how a biological weapon attack would affect the 800,000 residents of the city.”

So they, uh, perpetrated a biological attack on American citizens to find out what would happen in the event of a biological attack on American citizens?! Honestly, the mind reels. In one of the largest human experiments in history, our military covered the people of San Francisco with “...two kinds of bacteria, Serratia marcescens and Bacillus globigii...” (Nowadays you can only find that kind of treatment from Cleveland’s tap water.)

The gas attack sickened many and was known to kill at least one man. According to Rebecca Kreston at Discover Magazine, this event ranked as one of the largest offenses against the Nuremberg Code since its inception because the code requires voluntary, informed consent to, you know, hit people with bioweapons. (Unless you’re trying to kill them, in which case I think the informed consent is off the table.)

But that experiment did not mark the end of such things, just the beginning. “Over the next 20 years, the military would conduct 239 ‘germ warfare’ tests over populated areas, according to news reports from the 1970s – after the secret tests [had] been revealed – in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Associated Press, and other publications, and also detailed in congressional testimony from the 1970s.”

After it came out, the government explained that their goal was to deter the use of biological weapons and be prepared for them. Apparently we wanted to deter biological weapons attacks on Americans by dropping biological weapons on Americans first. What a genius strategy. Our enemies would never see it coming. Plus, why would our global nemeses attack us with germ warfare if we do it to ourselves? You can’t threaten to kill a man if he wants to die!

Of the 239 biological and chemical warfare tests perpetrated by the military, some were done across the Midwest to see how the pathogen would spread throughout the country (and probably to clear out some parking spots). When asked why military planes were dispersing unknown clouds of shit over cities, they claimed they were testing a way to mask the cities from enemy bombers.

In another study of how vulnerable New York City subway passengers were to covert biological agents, for six days the U.S. military broke light bulbs brimming full of the bacteria Bacillus subtilis and S. marcescens inside NYC subway stations and watched it spread throughout the city. “Clouds would engulf people as trains pulled away, but documents say that the people ‘brushed their clothing and walked on.’ No one was concerned.”

That’s New York for ya. Hit commuters with germ warfare — they just brush it off and keep moving. Every day to a New Yorker is germ warfare. I once rode from Montauk to Hoboken sitting across from a man relieving himself (the entire way). A little experiment by the Military Industrial Complex doesn’t even register on a New Yorker’s list of things to worry about.

Yet, the military was testing more than just germ attacks. “Other experiments involved testing mind-altering drugs on unsuspecting citizens.” That program went by the name of MKUltra (which is also a great name for a metal band or a homemade cocktail containing absinthe). MKUltra continued for twenty years, during which the CIA tried to achieve mind control by using torture, LSD, hypnosis, and electroshock therapy — sometimes on unwitting subjects. (And even if they were ‘witting’ going into the experiment, afterwards not so much).

Among other things, this program resulted in...

We Should Be Crying Over Spilt Milk
43 Million Gallons To Be Exact

Over 40 million gallons of milk is dumped into fields, lagoons, and landfills every year. ...And it demonstrates everything that's wrong with our socioeconomic system.

People love to pretend our market economy simply maximizes efficiency and happiness. “Humankind has never seen anything better than good ol’ American capitalism”, they like to yell out the window of their pickup trucks with a couple of confused migrant workers kidnapped in the back. But in reality, the invisible hand of the free market belongs to a drunk evil villain with his other hand slowly petting a hairless cat. 

In order to explain how, I have to first ask you this question: Do you still drink a glass of milk? Ever? Probably not. And that means our society is collapsing. 

(I know that's a weird question, but I've never claimed to be normal. I've claimed to be a lot of things — ambidextrous, a terrible dancer, the last person in the world you want to babysit your kid — but I've never claimed to be normal. Besides, normal is boring. We don't have much time on this strange rock. Existence is fleeting. So why spend it "fitting in"? I've never wanted to fit in. That’s not true; I very much wanted to fit in from the age of zero to 17. Then I realized it was a fool’s errand. No one should seek normal. That's half the problem with our society — everyone is trying so hard to be regular, to allow cultural hegemony to just wash over them, but when was the last time anyone excitedly told people how normal they were? Or got an award for being the most normal — which is an oxymoron to begin with? "This year we give the trophy for not standing out to... DAN! Come on up here, Dan. You must find this moment horrifying." Point being: Don't be normal, bland, typical, or harmonious. Be strange, weird, bizarre, and perplexing. And if you find yourself so unusual that no one wants to hang out with you anymore, then maybe back it off a little and think about putting your pants back on.)

Back to the question: Do you still drink cow milk? Like the mucus that shoots out of the penis-looking things under a cow? I don't know anyone who does. I don't even know that many people who force that stuff on their kids anymore. And don't worry, the point of this column is not to inform you how disgusting milk is. I'm not going to waste your time with sentences like, "What are you crazy?! Shoving all those hormones and antibiotics down your kid’s throat??" ...I'm not going to say that. 

No, my point is that people don't really drink much bovine juice anymore and our response to this new reality reveals how inefficient, poorly planned, and troublesome our society is. Milk has faded as a standard American beverage, hanging out on the forgotten grocery store shelves with 7Up and Tang. My personal belief is that milk has slipped from our cultural consciousness because there are so many other options of drinkables that don’t squirt out of hooved animals. The shelves boastfully display almond milk — or truthfully almond juice — soy juice, cashew juice, rice juice, which I think they call Rice Dream for some reason. (I'm sorry, no one dreams about fucking rice juice. And if you do dream about it, get a hobby for the love of god! Become a boating enthusiast or an arsonist or something, because you’re dreaming about rice and that’s not normal. ...The bad kind of not normal, not the good kind of not normal.) 

So how is the dairy industry dealing with the waning need for their product? Are they backing off? Are they shrinking in size? Are they going out of business? Of course not — because capitalism requires infinite growth. Therefore, the dairy industry makes the same amount of milk as always and simply dumps it out. I kid you not. Roughly nine million dairy cows saunter around the farms of America, and it's not uncommon for producers to simply purge millions of gallons of extra bovine juice into ditches and landfills and lagoons.

Here’s from the Wall Street Journal a few years ago: "More than 43 million gallons’ worth of milk were dumped... (To read the rest of this excerpt from Lee Camp's new e-book Dangerous Ideas, become a paying supporter. You will also receive the entire e-book as a gift for becoming a member.)

12 Reasons Housing Should Be A Human Right
A preview chapter from "Dangerous Ideas"

                What If Housing Were A Human Right

      (This is a chapter from Lee Camp's upcoming e-book "Dangerous Ideas".)

Congress’ inability to actually represent the real live human beings of America, combined with an economic system that rewards lack of empathy and an excess of greed, has brought us to a dark time when an oncoming tsunami of financial ruin, destitution, and evictions towers over our heads, blocking out the sunlight.

No matter when you’re reading this, there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of homeless people across the U.S. Bear in mind during the pandemic our government bailed out big banks and Wall Street to the tune of $4.25 Trillion, but on top of that the Pentagon has over $21 Trillion of unaccounted-for adjustments on their books over the past 20 years and can’t account for half their assets. This is to say — there’s plenty of money.

Money is an idea, a concept, an imaginary metaphysical belief, and it’s high time we faced the fact that the U.S. government has an unlimited imagination. As philosopher Alan Watts once put it — Money is not a thing, it’s a measurement. Saying there’s not enough money to do something is like a builder saying there’s not enough inches to build a house. He has the wood, nails and hammers. He’s just out of inches.

The U.S. government could’ve easily given every American $2,000 a month during the pandemic housing crisis to keep almost everybody in their homes and apartments. In fact, Canada  opted to give $2,000 a month to those who lost work because of the pandemic.

But ignore the fact that there’s enough money. That’s not what we’re here to discuss.

There are also enough empty homes. As of 2022, there were 16 million vacant homes in the country. Compare that to...
