Means Are Fossilized in the End
Mission: to argue that the end contains the means: forever
(Means Being Fossilized in Ends)
(Too Often Making Ends Very Mean!)

First, anticipatory of mounting an essay on the subject, let me merely say that whenever you hear about means and ends, especially when you hear any kleptocrat, whether following Marx or Washington, use those terms, please consider that means remain fossilized in the ends. Any portrait of a workers’ society should show at its base a lot of murdered capitalists. Any portrait of George Washington should be structured like the Great Seal on the dollar bill with its mystic eye on the pyramid.
George should be at the top where the eye is: and in place of each of those numerologically mystical pyramid stones should be represented dead natives, enslaved foreigners, lies, broken treaties … Any portrait of civilization should show lost nature as its collapsing base.
