The problem is that we currently live in upside-down land, bizarro world. The biggest criminals, doing the most heinous deeds including mass murder by war and starvation, are protected behind ah-fuck-it levels of red tape and plausible deniability. People are allowed to know that the most successful political campaigns are the well-funded ones, and then get all puffed up and surprised when the elected officials go with the interest of big business against the stated will of the people every single time they think they can get away with it. The most legal and accepted drugs are the most dangerous and profitable ones, while the most demonised and illegal ones are those with the highest risk of pulling your head from your ass.
The problem is that we celebrate one day in the year when it's the season to be jolly and nice to each other, while for all the other ones it's widely accepted that those are the days that everyone is meant to steal as much as they can from each other and be utterly miserable about it. There are enough people taking antidepressants that they're finding it in the drinking water, and all the questions of "why, why, why?" are drowned out by the loudness of "please sir, may I have some more?". Earth's most celebrated day is the birth of earth's most famous martyr, whom everyone supposedly looks up to but almost no-one listens to. It doesn't matter that the celebration is done by lining the pockets of the most usurious and gutless scum to ever walk the earth and that no one actually lives by the lessons that Jesus attempted to teach us, because it's the thought that counts. In a world of make-believe money, hard and soft, where a mental flat line is as common as Colon Cola™, thoughts are the only currency people can still believe in.
In the age where reason has returned to nature, be it tomorrow or in a thousand years, we may well spend one day instead attempting to remember the utter desolation and suffering that can be visited upon a planet when people turn "it's not my problem" into their creed. On asshole day, kids would try to duck little turds bursting from a rothschild piñata, and attempt to loop the noose around the banker, wearing a blindfold made from the precipitated catatonia of humanity. On asshole day, everyone would choke down a glass of piss and then form groups to discuss how much they enjoyed it, because that's how it was done in the old days.
It would appear that the ball is in play with the wikileaks manipulations and its attending effects. The leaks, saying too little and somehow far too much, are meant to serve the dual purpose of being a continued assault on governments and another attempt to shut down the internet. The governments, most or all of them, are collections of weakling sell-outs, attracted to power and status. Their failings are well documented every time they attempt to do something, and we won't shed a tear for them here. Neither will their masters who, much like lizards, are attempting to cast off their tails and leave their minions holding the bag, while they scurry away like the cowards they have always been. They cannot abide the internet, dissonant and nebulous even as it is now, because if people are allowed to paypal each other donations for things they found useful rather than things they really had no choice in buying, it would not be long before people realised that we don't need the burden of finance in order to support ourselves.
It may just be my recent ambivalence on pretty much all subjects, but it seems that every new assault of manipulation is falling on deaf ears. The mammonite offerings appear to be ever more self-defeating and ill-informed, the best example as yet being the leaking wiki. I can only surmise that we've been on the good shit for too long. Mail bombs, reports of subverted threats and FBI-employed flaming crotches just don't cut it any more. Their repeated attempts to kick off a world war from the Koreas have been as flaccid as they are. To get our attention again they have to point out the only remaining threat anyone cares about: thieving bloodsuckers who survive by manipulation.
We need to remember who we're dealing with here. In a system where money is exchanged for skills, they have almost all of the former and almost none of the latter. They're masters of a bygone world where vacuousness is a virtue. By doing everything in their power to remove themselves from anything real in the world, they have lost contact with it all, and have become as aliens trying to communicate their outmoded threats. They have mistreated us in every way they could think of, and as a result have created people who have emerged from it all and realised that they are still alive and ready for the fight of the ages.
Even if it is their master plan and even if they have been for centuries trying to accomplish their sad goal, they are going to find out the hard way that what they always wanted from us cannot be stolen. They can steal our money, our time, our ideas, years off our lives or even our lives themselves, but they will never have the one thing they've denied themselves by their behaviour. Love can only be given, it cannot be taken.
I have to be honest enough with myself to admit that I may not know what the hell I'm talking about. It's no secret that by now I'm balls deep in several conspiracy theories, which is really just an honest description of what they are—theories of conspiracies—though a negative connotation has been created around this term by the media. The brain forms its habits and opinions about things by building neural pathways and then using these constructed short cuts to speed up the process of making decisions. The pathways are strengthened by reinforcement and new ones can be built as long as there aren't already others in the place it tries to build them. The bonds can be broken as well, but it is easier for the energy to flow in an established path. In this way, the only reality that exists is what is seen by the being observing it and you can bet that this world is perceived a little differently by everything alive in it. Right now, we are under the spell of a type of mass hypnosis which doesn't use any form of magic besides continuously telling us things that aren't true. This is just good business to some people, and you can certainly blame them for centuries of suffering and mass murder visited upon humanity, but even if it's the last thing they'll ever allow themselves to admit, all they ever wanted is the love and acceptance of their fellow humans. These are the people who secretly hated themselves enough that they could see no other way to get it than by theft. Life only travels in one general direction back to the source and they are the ones who are taking the longest route.
And so we are alive today in a world where majority rules and the most popular form of idea transmission is one that is filtered by what is profitable. Moving outside the generally accepted view of reality is an alien concept, and we'll all have to break this monster down piece by piece inside ourselves and carefully consider which parts can be kept and which are bad for us. The whole process can be more than a little disheartening, because invariably you have to go from a fully constructed reality to a laying a blank new foundation, and our only reason for doing this is a faint feeling that something is very wrong. It's not easy being out here, adrift with no compass, but when the consensus is in error, the only way to find new land is by being lost off the edge of the map. People can call us crazy, but shouted as it is from beneath the golden arches of the local mcdonald's, it is a great compliment.
Everything I've learned since falling down the rabbit hole has been treated with a combination of trust and disbelief, since there's a lot of disinformation floating around out there and what passes for science here is a poor method of confirming anything of real value. Occasionally I get to "see" things, which is really only the momentary lining up of facts in a pattern that conforms to the rules of life, and is most likely also related to how certain ideas "ring" of truth. If I hadn't "seen" the inevitable collapse of the system years ago, when this blog was still populated alternately by game reviews and masturbation jokes, I might've doubted it like I have any other idea I've encountered during my awakening. It was Paris Hilton that showed me the truth one night, of what is to become of the consumerist system. Here is a person who was really the next step in celebrities at the time, being famous only for being famous. Instead of a name, she got a cheap ad for a hotel. Of course we're a couple of generations past dear Paris already, and someone else had to step in after Britney Spears burned out in such spectacular fashion. We've been trapped here so long because they've found a way to sell diluted life and love back to us, but the name of the game is unregulated theft and things of real value have become too expensive to include in this world of mass production. We've finally run ourselves around in a complete circle, and the only step left, if you don't want to repeat the grade, is out.
As the murder of the Gulf of Mexico has proven once again, the most heinous of crimes will go unnoticed by the voting flock as long as it is not covered by the mainstream media. Anyone who's paying attention knows that the markets are a sham. The current so-called performance of it is so far out of whack of the fundamentals that it leaves anyone trying to explain it speechless, spinning around in circles in vain trying to find the right words to convey the utter level of unimaginable theft and lies. It's clear now that markets don't crash, no matter how overinflated and stressed at the seams they are, until the mammonite-owned media deems that they should. A panic erupts when this happens, and the whole flock stampedes to the exit, never realising that the only thing that was keeping the lie afloat to begin with was their belief in it.
Picture if you will, the December 7th bank run is anywhere near successful. If my little voice of guesstimation and bullshit detection is right, this meme is nothing more than an attempt to demonise the truth movement and citizen activism in the mind of the voting public. It would benefit the truth movement to remember that private banks are just the the lowest level in the system of theft, quite insulated from the next one above it. Very few people read my ramblings and I would have it no other way, but if someone knows better, please correct my assumptions on this matter. I only have the stomach to read one financial blog and what I know of finance is cobbled together largely from ZeroHedge and glances at the pit of hate that squats in my darkest recesses. If a private bank—like the ones you're allowed to know the name of without going to find it out—folds, it would be just like when anyone stops paying back a loan, because the largely non-existent money they loan to the public was loaned from the central banks. Contractually, the central banks would then be obliged to seize all the assets owned by the smaller banks, which they in turn seized from the public following the inevitable folding of all those bad loans they issued. Their stock prices would drop into the toilet and any kind of scum that strives to own yet another bank, yet lacks the spine to buy it at market value would then be able to pick up a controlling share for a bargain. The media would spin the people up into the kind of frenzied panic they're famous for, assisted by all the money people who didn't participate just lost, and what would most likely be pushed forward is that this was caused by anti-semitic "financial terrorists" who organise themselves into groups on the internet and plot to overthrow the beloved consumerist system that supplies spare organs to toddlers and food to the needy. Selectively censoring the internet would thereafter make a lot more sense to the voter base than attacking Iraq did after 9/11, where most of the purported attackers were from Saudi Arabia, and the CIA-manufactured terrorist organisation was said to be based in Afghanistan.
Before this little celebrity endorsed idea showed up on the net, I was half convinced that the next false flag might be a cyberattack that stole everyone's imaginary digital money and left teevee-spawned chaos on the streets, but it would seem that a trembling and palpable fear has made the self-chosen scum pee down their legs and scale down their attack for now. The facts as I see them are these: They are losing control and they know it. As an inescapable result, they are attempting to tighten their grip but ironically that will just make things more unstable, and they know this too. They are the result of their own creation and they're about ready to do some really stupid shit. The financial profit they've been able to extract over centuries is dependant on the operation of a finely-tuned lie. They have been co-opting what started off as an insignificant truth movement for years, and as a result they have pushed a lot of money into letting everyone know how things really are. The pieces have started to line up for some more than others, and ongoing and unchecked theft has created a really unstable situation which could go up with the slightest spark.
It's all good. If the life force could be destroyed it would be long dead by now. Nobody's holding a gun to our heads to make us go to work every day, because if they did it would be too obvious what we are, or more to the point, what we make ourselves. We were sold a bill of goods advertising one thing, but the warranty has expired and now we're seeing, one by one, what we've bought into and where it leads. The walls are coming down and we'll each have to decide whether we want to be inside the system or out. Diversification of the species happens in evolution by separation. There is nothing but ideas standing between us and the next step.
We're severely screwed up. In so many ways that they can't be kept in the broken human mind all at once. When, for instance, was the last time that a nation suffered clustered earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and a tsunami all at once, and the only thing you'd see in the news is that the fat whore queen of england joined facebook? Ideas are in the end perhaps the most powerful things, and when it happens that they can be owned, the perversion of the social structure begins on a grand scale. From the moment that the moneyed interests deem which ideas are let out upon the ruling majority and which are squashed, a festering lie starts growing in the social order. It is in such a way that the idea of freedom gets renamed to poverty and that pervasive remote monitoring is called security.
The scum that has drawn profit from the system of global slavery, suffering and fear have outlived every toppled monarchy and dictatorship. They have done this by diverting energy for change away from the central problem like a lightning rod, by co-opting revolutions and dressing up the old lies in new clothing. What was advertised as change in america has ended in the election of another lying puppet and a group of people teabagging each other. Our own beloved internet truth movement is full of very popular people saying we should buy precious metals. I'm sorry, but aren't the mines owned by the same all-encompassing conglomerates we're trying to get rid of? Wasn't all the gold stolen by those who do the stealing when paper money went off the gold standard? In the same way, it seems, a coordinated bank run is planned for December. Bank runs historically being used for things like the creation of feral reserve banks, and I won't ask where that idea came from. Show of hands then, who here keeps their money in central banks? Maybe some wayward traveller can correct my math here, but won't the vacuum left by the destruction of the smaller big banks only allow the thieves who escape unscathed yet again to further solidify their monopoly by picking up the slack? Far be it for me to try and stop people from teabagging and bank runs, though. We're down so far that any change in scenery will be refreshing.
The solution to this problem is not going to change, we have to stop using money. Money is what enables those with lying and manipulation as their only skills to own the planet. Any diversion on this point will only result in being more food for the Anglerfish of this world. You cannot have your freedom and an SUV. I am in the fortunate position of never having allowed myself anything left to lose, but I have been waiting, hoping that I would not have to go it alone, that I could take my family and some of humanity with me when I leave the money system. It is becoming clear though that the moth will not be diverted from its flame. The only crime of the so-called sheeple is believing what they're told. Their only shortcoming is not being acquainted with the evil inside themselves well enough to see what is being done to them. It's okay, it's not that bad. There are worse things than death by misplaced trust.
Now that the foreclosure fraud is breaking in the mainstream media, the exodus of managers from large banks a few months ago makes a whole lot more sense. At the time, the stampede of these managers and CEOs of large companies out of the system made a couple of ripples in the truth movement, and although the rats-from-a-sinking-ship imagery was obvious, nobody really knew what had spooked them.
This isn't an "oh dear, what happened?" or a "nobody really knows what's going on" deal. The sub-human scum that escaped with all they could steal knew what would happen next. Financial bloggers and all kinds of not completely hypnotised people have been mystified by why banks would approve loans that they knew would eventually be defaulted on. The answer, as it turns out, is profit. The people who did this are gone, beyond the reach of the system of prosecution they exploit so effectively, doing whatever it is that mammonites in retirement do. Paying for sex, probably. Now whoever was stupid enough to take over from them, much like Obama, has been left holding the bag.
There is an undeniable and rather shocking level of hate that has built up against banks, and I'm not so sure it wasn't intended. Humans, while hypnotised and near-catatonic in our dealings, are not completely dead yet. Every now and then, the truth about the ongoing theft and slavery starts to get a little too obvious and people—as much as they are still capable—start thinking about what the problem is. The scum that run this system know this, they are not completely dead yet either. They have continued their rule of this planet by feeding us something that looks like the truth, but is in reality a hollowed out shell wherein the snakes hide.
Their play in situations like this has always been Problem -> Reaction -> Solution. Go look up the history of the american feral reserve if you want proof of this. Historically, they create a problem, like, say, by printing in newspapers how some bank no longer has the capital to cover their loans. As a result, people panic and withdraw all their money from the bank in question. Then of course the bank really doesn't have any more money, and the first two stages are complete. The people are unhappy. "The thing we trusted you with don't work like you promised," they'd say, "fix it now." This is where step three comes in, the real reason the first two were executed, because if a gigantic fucking national bank were created for no reason, people might become suspicious. But if you found that gigantic privately-owned bank after some manufactured crisis, you can say that the crisis will never happen again. "You can trust us," they'd say, "we know what we're doing." Problem -> Reaction -> Solution. False flag -> National mourning -> War for oil. Control through the media is important here, and by now exceedingly easy, since if the people of today don't see something on the teevee, it didn't happen. You can tell a lot about the intended effect by what the mainstream media is and is not allowed to cover.
So one of the things you can probably expect from this Watergate remake is a gigantic oversight and regulation institution, sold to you as preventing such atrocities from ever happening again, but in fact is just another way to ensure that no one can profit who is not mammonite approved. It will probably require all banks and private institutions to pay this new institution all kinds of prohibitively-priced tributes, thereby further solidifying the old money system precept of you need money to make money. So far, the effect of the so-called financial crisis has been that the huge mammonite institutions could buy up smaller businesses and banks at bargain prices, and that will also only get worse. This is what is happening and has happened many times inside the mammonite system. Surprise, surprise, the interests of money guard the interests of money, and money is the god of this age. You have free will, even though the options you've been presented with seem more than a little one-sided. It doesn't matter to me what you do, but don't say you weren't warned.
Oil, gas and pharmaceutical companies, banks and weapon manufacturers form the foundation of the pervasive current world order. It is exceptionally profitable for these organisations to start wars and supply both sides, and to keep the public sick, overworked and in debt, while preventing much cheaper and efficient energy technologies from reaching the world, by any means available. From the vantage point of this type of scum, it's just good business. It's true that the directors and chief investors to these organisations are mostly all the same people, and that the list of names looks like the guest list for Satan's bar mitzvah, but it's also true that the current world order survives in part by division among the people.
It seems that, historically, the term jew can be more accurately understood as a synonym to the word victim than the name of a race. Though maintaining an edict of purity, the bloodlines of many races have been absorbed into this nation while apparently being chased all over the planet for stealing. As a result there are different types of jews, like you get different coloured credit cards which are meant signify importance. The only two types that really matter though are the type that continuously extract profit from the victim label, and the rest who are periodically sacrificed to keep this label alive. No prizes for guessing who arranges the sacrificial war.
mid-13c., "sacrifice by fire, burnt offering," from Gk. holokauston , neut. of holokaustos "burned whole," from holos "whole" + kaustos , verbal adj. of kaiein "to burn." Originally a Bible word for "burnt offerings," given wider sense of "massacre, destruction of a large number of persons" from 1833.
It's also interesting to note that not all those who extract profit and exert control through the above mentioned industries are jews, and that those who don't qualify to attend the bar mitzvah still get invited to Satan's stool parties. It is why I like to instead use the term mammonites, since it also provides a far more accurate description as well as an understanding of the pre-historic scale of the problem, time-wise.
There are many labels available for us to identify with, of which the jew label is the most divisive. Most of these come with a mortal enemy and a sordid tale of who did what to whom, so that we may continue to advance the arms race of revenge. The goal of this is not simply murder, but the same goal as the the slow-motion destruction of Palestine, and the widespread and all-consuming coverage of manufactured global terrorism by the commercial media, and that's fear. The suggestion that no one is safe. The intention is to keep the people subjective all the time, so that we can't take a step back and consider who's benefiting from it all, but most importantly that we don't realise that our cooperation in our own destruction is voluntary.
Life is composed of cycles spinning around larger cycles, spinning around even larger cycles, and so on and so forth. These can also be observed as waves arriving at different frequencies, their peaks and troughs interacting to produce a pattern unique to when it is observed. Every once in a while, the conditions are right for most or all of the peaks to line up. The resulting increased energy state manifests in the world created by the interaction of these waves as excitement, which in turn manifests as a change or transformation of this world. I believe that we are experiencing the lead-up to such a shift right now.
All money in our economy has been issued with interest by those who have the resources to issue it. From the very moment the first amount was lent, the amount that needed to be paid back to settle the loan was more money than actually existed. Without further loans being issued then, it is impossible for the loan to be settled as agreed. This applies to resource or gold based economies as well as fiat or paper money based economies. To keep this system from collapsing in upon the truth of itself, either more loans or more resources need to be continuously "created," or else the people inside the system would have to admit that we've been had.
This is how, over centuries, the institutions that began this death spiral have been able to extract more and more from everyone by doing nothing more than maintaining the appearance that the system benefits everyone, when in truth it only benefits those who made the loans. Much time and effort has been applied to hide the fact of the matter, and as a result, finance has become by far the most obfuscated field there is.
Life exists because it fills a perfect balance of strength through attraction in a hostile environment. In a temporal sense, nature and parts of nature survive because they are continuously tested and forced to adapt or be destroyed. We've had ample time to build anything of our choosing, and now the squeeze has been applied to see which of these things have been built on the principles that have enabled life to endure all.
We've been brought increasingly face to face with the monster we've been feeding because of the excited state we now exist in. Many have been shown the truth of this system, by finding themselves in debt and yet in ownership of nothing with value. Energy or light is being released by the interaction between the many elements, and the financial system cannot stand up to this scrutiny because it is based on a lie, something which can only survive as long as it can be hidden.
I was planning on doing a predictive post on the things you can expect from these crumbling institutions, but there are now simply too many variables. This is a good thing, since it also means that anything is now possible and the only thing standing in our way is the limit of our trust in something better. One thing you can be sure of is that they will make a play to re-assert control, because that is the thing they are most afraid of losing. Another false flag attack seems the most likely candidate, since it serves the dual purpose of excusing the further erosion of non-profitable human rights and the escalation of exceedingly profitable war.
It's too late for their beloved monstrosity. Their worst fear has already been realised: The truth of what they've been up to has already grown far beyond their control. Reacting in fear, they will now proceed to make ever greater mistakes. The larger the scale of their next attack, the larger the margin for error will be. Can you imagine a greater and more obvious miscalculation than World Trade Center building 7?
Fearful and superstitious offerings like Christianity have turned many aware individuals away from faith, by association. In truth, love is the only thing strong enough to grow through the darkness of oblivion. Anything not based on it can only eventually shrivel up and die. The system we are operating in is so far removed from anything that matters that the answer only exists in most of us as a barely discernible spark. Every form of control of varying subtlety in our society has been designed to counteract this force, and there is no way to escape this control without trusting the light within ourselves.
Someone very wise once said: Hate is not the opposite of love, apathy is.
Acclimation, I think, is the cornerstone of perception as we know it. It is both the source of our remarkable ability to adapt to the most horrid conditions, as well as the source of our boredom or discontent. It is also the reason a frog will be boiled alive rather than jump out, if the water it sits in is heated slowly enough, and the reason that the world like the one of today can exist: Where people can be counted on to routinely act against their own best interests, where almost everything with real meaning has been taken away from us by those who seek financial gain, and we have been given shit in return.
Another effect of acclimation is that whatever you focus your thoughts on will form the walls of your reality. A mountain climber and someone who digs tunnels for a living will look at the same hill and experience it in very different ways, for instance. Whether you love or hate something, whatever it is gets drawn into your reality because your thoughts are occupied with it. The big similarity between love and hate then, is that they are both attractive forces, the hallmark of any strong emotion being its ability to dominate perception. It is ironic, since people hate things that they want to get away from. When you hate something, the tendency is to continuously seek a more complete definition of it, so that it can be avoided with greater efficiency. Through constant mental focus, the definition will keep growing until eventually everything is coloured by it, until the hate has consumed everything that is perceived as reality. When the focus on hate has consumed us this way, it is a lot easier to act like the thing we hate, because it has become the law of the world we live in.
It is my belief that we can only love or hate something when we recognise it, if unconsciously, as a part of ourselves. Being part of the fractal of life/nature/god, everything in it conforms to the rule of self-similarity, where even the smallest sub-parts of the whole share all the characteristics of the original, albeit perhaps with different concentrations. It would be no great feat if someone who does good things did not also have the choice to do bad things. Life, in its greatest sense, would not be remarkable if it didn't exist where there could've just as easily have been nothing.
One thing you can be sure of about people that became consumed by their hate and ended up acting exactly like their despised adversary, is that they believed that they could never become like that, and thus did not notice their actions sliding ever more toward their point of focus.
It is too easy to hate the people I continue to call the mammonites, those who seek nothing but money for the power it has over others. They are the ones who had planes flown into the twin towers before bringing them down in a controlled demolition, so that they could collect the insurance money and use their media empire to tell everyone that the culprits, the ones who are to be hated beyond reason for this atrocity, were the ones who lived where the oil is. They are the ones who arranged the holocaust so that a new state of Israel could be formed in Palestine, so that their empire could draw the benefits of a nation state. I'm not talking just about the jews and I'm not talking about the germans, though some of them may be german, and as I understand it, some may say that they are jews when it benefits them.
Sometimes the facts of their deeds line up, and I can feel the hate making rage to bubble up from some dark place. In these times it is important to remember the nature of hate and where it leads. That if you focus on it, eventually it will consume you as it did them. Most importantly, it will benefit us to remember that fear-as-hate is what enables them. It is the weakness they continue to exploit, and the only tool they have.
The old world is gone, in my opinion. You may say goodbye, but it can't hear you.
Chances are, if you found this you've probably heard recently about things like the new world order, planetary population reductions or the shape-shifting reptilians that are supposedly behind it all. There is a nebulous cloud of information out there and disinformation dwarves the truth by several orders of magnitude. Truth is, once you've caught a whiff of the atrocity at the core of the crumbling monetary system, you will believe just about anything about those who run it.
If you made a chart that showed the volume of empathic ability possessed by every person on the planet, it could be assumed that the product would be a bell curve, just from statistical distribution. With the most marginal extremes at both ends, on one side you would find the most loving and generous people, while at the other will dwell the most selfish and fearful creatures ever to not see the light of day.
The monetary system, that is, a system that is based on bartering or the illusion of equal trade as opposed to simply sharing, is the result of the idea that we are all separate, sovereign beings. In truth, the one and only constant in life is attraction, which in turn results in the fractal of experiences that is available in it. If you go back far enough, everything observable comes from the same source. Not that you need to go back that far to see that the difference between white and black people is tiny compared to the difference between either and a possum, and that the difference between a possum and a person is tiny compared to the difference between either and a rock.
Through fear we have been led to believe that we are all separate, that our individuality makes us sovereign. In this world right now, you have to be extremely careful just to not end up with a nemesis. The jews, republicans, hispanics, tree huggers, lesbians, cagers and the trekkies are all just aching for you to hate them. All groups zealously defending their wonderful little arrangement of life that, it is assumed, no one else could ever understand.
This concept of life as I have used it can be understood in many ways. Some choose to call it God, while the more scientific approach might be to define it as a natural force of attraction called love. Unfortunately, both of these terms have been contaminated almost beyond recognition by people who wish to deny this force, so more suitable terms are life or trust. It is both a thing as it is a rule or an imperative, which manifests because it could not exist any other way. Every creature on the above-mentioned curve understands this on some level, or they would not be on the graph. Nothing exists that does not share at least some measure of life.
The insanely selfish people that fall on the one side of our imaginary bell curve choose to deny this singular truth because of their extreme fear, or hate. As a result they act as they believe, with exceeding selfishness and destructive will towards every other part of life. Life allows this because it is flexible and curious--it is loving.
One thing anyone who's ever spent time in the bowels of a monetary system probably understands, is that the less regard you have for the well-being of others, the more money you can make. Understand that this monetary system has been running for a very long time, and all it's had to do over the hundreds of years of its existence is to make the extraction of profit ever more effective, and to pervade the most heartless beings to the highest echelons of its control.
The bottom line is that, by now, every money-based organisation or institution operates under the unwritten rule that more money is better. Think about any facet of the civilisation that is unceasingly minced through the TV: More money means more options. What we ended up with is a system which awards power to those who seek to destroy everything else for their own benefit.
The irony of what these selfish people--let's call them the mammonites--seek is that they need everyone else to accomplish it. Everyone else either needs to trust them or to become like them to play along with the monopoly that their contemporaries have created. Their power, such as it is, relies entirely on the people's willingness to believe in it. This has worked as long as it did because up until now there's been a balance between the trust and the hate. But the earth has entered a critical period. It's no longer as easy to follow the old patterns, and my feeling is that this is just the beginning.
2010 has been the world year for records. In many places, decade- or century-old records have been broken for minimum winter temperatures, maximum summer temperatures, highest and lowest rainfall. You may have missed the large and sometimes devastating earthquakes and/or volcanic eruptions recently in Haiti, Chile, Indonesia, New Zealand and the Philippines, or the floods in Brazil, Poland, Pakistan and Australia. It's difficult to tell now, but things weren't like this in 2009. The production of staple foods, which has kept those who have least sufficiently alive and satisfied, has already been greatly diminished by unusual weather, to name just one effect.
The mammonites, of course, have more than they could ever spend, and yet they will never have enough. They cannot help themselves, it's all they know. The banks have not only stopped lending, but they have been calling in their loans. Since everything from personal to government spending in the most "developed" countries has generally been based on debt, the wheels of this monstrosity have all but stopped. The governments, as corrupt and short-sighted as ever, have decided to address this problem by paying all remaining public funds directly to the institutions that created the mess. As a result, most countries are broke and the only thing they can do, since the banks won't lend, is to attempt to take another country's resources. Incidentally, a world war would be very profitable if you happen to be on the board of directors of several "energy" and arms companies. Owning most of the media probably wouldn't hurt, either.
Through centuries of applying various forms of control to increase profit while decreasing revolutions, they have attempted to breed just the right kind of slave: A selfish creature meant to be closer to animal than human. They have succeeded with a certain portion of the population and, having forgotten the laws of nature, pushed their atavistic creations into a mortal corner. Given the situation, there really is only one thing that can happen next.
The voluntary slavery system known as the international economy has been rotting from the inside ever since the trust to fear ratio reached a critical point. Now that it's begun, the cycle will only reinforce itself until eventually there is nothing left of the world we once knew. Every person in this meat grinder has to decide whether they are going to speed the sinking of the ship by taking on more gold or if they are going to get as far away from it all as possible.
There is no easy fix for dealing with the darkness that has saturated our lives. Even now, when many of the beings that constitute the mammonites come from a certain group of people, a group who calls themselves the jews, it would not help much to marginalise or attempt to destroy this group, because as our twisted society has demonstrated, greed is an option that is available to everyone. It was by attempting to delegate away our resposibilities with seemingly easy fixes like monetary and governmental systems that we landed in this mess to begin with. The only real way to deal with the taint that resides in each of us is through constant, dedicated effort, because it will always be easier to take than to give.
