Moloch whose mind is pure machinery! Moloch whose blood is running money! Moloch whose fingers are ten armies! Moloch whose breast is a cannibal dynamo! Moloch whose ear is a smoking tomb!
You may have heard of the concept of the "body politic" used to describe a country. Ginsberg turns Moloch into a Godzilla-like "body anti-politic," tearing at the bond between citizens. His body parts are instruments of capitalist and military might. Rather than produce order, they destroy it. Moloch is a false idol.

Moloch in whom I sit lonely! Moloch in whom I dream Angels! Crazy in Moloch! Cocksucker in Moloch! Lacklove and manless in Moloch!
From resembling a huge monster trampling on America's working class, Moloch becomes a bubble in which the speaker lives, a soundproof room in which he goes mad.

I'm with you in Rockland where you accuse your doctors of insanity and plot the Hebrew socialist revolution against the fascist national Golgotha
The patients of the psychiatric hospital plan a "revolution" to counter the "fascist" elements of society. "Fascist" is an insult commonly hurled at conservatives by progressives, just like "Commie" was a insult hurled at liberals by conservatives. Carl Solomon lives in a world of stark political poles.
