    The Army Just Admitted To Wrongful Accounting Of $6.5 TRILLION!


    Aug 28, 2016

    The military budget audit has been the most embarrassing news coming out of the most esteemed
    institution in the country. Where did 6.5 trillion dollars go? How can you criticize social service programs
    when this discrepancy exists?

    Did you say "Mickey" ?

    I'm curious, What is the Mickey Complex? I know that Disney had a UFO documentary that slipped past the censors for awhile. Is that it?

    Yup, early Disney is one of those primary corporations responsible for dogmatizing US children with all kinds of fairy tales about princes and prince protectors, and princesses and maidservants. The reputation of monarchy had suffered greatly in the American experiment under the meme of "all men are created equal", and Walt did his part to resurrect it. Of course, monarchy still enjoyed a solid reputation in Europe. One czar down and one kaiser voluntarily coup-ed, only increased the Mesmer number on the remaining monarchies: English, Belgian, Dutch, etc. ... but perhaps best encapsulated by the House of Grimaldi in Monaco, where banking blood and royal titular fluids had a rendezvous and spawned opulence like never before seen in monarchy; toss in a sexy movie star and voila: the zen and zenith of fairy tales was born right then and there, the British queen appearing butch by comparison.

    So with Disney doing its work against the "all men are created equal" meme, the invitation for class differences was hand-delivered to any American searching for the Mount Everest of vanity, with many ultimately landing on smaller ambitions of rising rock in Appalachia, and some even settling for grassy knolls ... anything to separate themselves from the concept of planarity with other men. Besides, the power pyramid sounds a lot more exclusive than the power plane.

    That said, all that preamble is unrelated to the term Mickey Complex ... which actually refers to the Military Industrial Complex. The "key" part is superfluous but it does help roll the important three letters off the old linguini, in a manner of speaking.

    Heck, let's make it legit. Ok. How about the Military Industrial Corporate Kleptocratic Ergonomic Yarmulke confederacy?

    You know, I wouldn't disagree with that assessment at all. And it's important because those Disney memes have done great damage to our culture. It is curious that Walt Disney, to use Trump talk was a no class loser until Mickey. But that can provide some insight into what drives losers to try to identify with the exalted. Self-aggrandizement. How stupid to believe that identifying with the disgusting makes one 'better'.
