It should shame any sentient being to say that fully seven years passed before they could see 9/11 for what it is, as was the case with me, but luckily most people who would judge me are still unable to hold the necessary concepts in their heads long enough to form a picture. It is my opinion now that this event was intended not only for sale of the terrorism surveillance state and what will probably turn out to be the last terran-only war, but also to divide the people of earth between those who can see what is in front of them, and those who cannot or will not. Divide and conquer may be an old trick, but as you may note from much the same people responsible for funding new hollywoodland films, originality and creativity comes not when your motivations are fear first and profit second.
What most often comes first to someone who is fortunate enough to have all those trees suddenly click to form a forest, is the impulse to go off crusading to free your co-humans from this most cowardly of world orders. Frustration is then encountered as you begin to notice the utterly obvious way in which most people, including yourself, are accustomed to think and act along the rigidly-defined lines as supplied by years of being surrounded by matured media. Indeed, it is this frustration that is meant to divide the people into "sheeple" and a new harvest of "illuminated ones".
Another fallacy that the newly-sighted have to deal with is that of centralised control, and I think that the impulse to free all is partly or completely derived from this line of thinking. You will inevitably observe this riding on the back of the truth movement: "Every bank turned out to be stealing, therefore we should have a centralised institution to monitor them." What the hilarious euro should have already demonstrated is that even a subset of life's problems are far too complex to have a single solution. Already this manner of institution is being attempted to regulate the universally-evil carbon dioxide. They do try so very hard. Never mind that everything these institutions do will happen behind closed doors, and include in its governing body people that no one and nothing except the requirements of capital elected. Never mind that every cent from the trillions of the first global tax will be spent in secret, until leaks open up a scandal of the oldest kind, to be buried behind some celebrity's sudden death.
No. It is no-one's duty to free everyone from themselves. It is my lifelong duty to free myself from my own stupidity. It's not the state's duty, and it is most certainly not that of the new world order. Giving up every ounce of life force to a pyramidal control structure in return for the protection of a police state is an extension of every person's right to make their own choices. Is someone a prisoner while they cannot perceive the bars on their cell and would never think to venture near them?
But let's not consider only the lowest common denominator, the state's staple diet. There are many who will need help, and that just might make the difference between their continued destruction under the current world order and the start of their lives as free human beings. Knowledge, for one thing, is something that can be shared without being diminished. In fact, it only improves with the assistance of another mind.
Still, many people will die here whose most admirable achievement will have been to paw at their tablets after gratification like some cosmically disappointing hamster seeking its next food pellet. There will be a reality show where someone comes to tie the shoes of those too voluminous or mentally deficient to do it themselves. The choice of this destiny is every person's right.
Here then is a useful word for everyone who insists on a police state to protect their infantile features:
Hau is a word used in southern Africa, and it can be translated to mean "I don't know". Most of the time "how this happened/works" can be suffixed. It is notable in that it often represents the the final step in the most ambitious attempt the user will make in understanding a problem. I suspect it will become much more widely useful than it is even now. Examples:
In order for a building to collapse into its own footprint at free-fall speed, all its load-bearing supports need to be severed at close to the exact same moment. How could this happen due to fire?
If all liquidity is introduced into the system as a loan from a bank, having interest, which means the amount that needs to be repaid is more than what was created, how could you expect anything other than infinite debt or collapse?
Having accepted that they are not capable of producing even possible hypotheses to relatively simple questions, even if their thought pattens are ruler-straight (like this dipshit), people are then free to proceed in giving all of their labour and love to the first charlatan or shill that are capable of speaking the loudest and producing the most shiny false dichotomies and straw man arguments. They have my blessing to continue in banging their heads against trees, trying to jetpack away from within what is actually a dense forest. In a moment of weakness during frustration I may still mark them with the name of sheeple. But that's not because their life is worth less than mine, only because it's apparently worth more to me than it is to them.
The time of the fiction is
completing for now. We grew tired
travelling the path of our culture, and for
a time were enticed to dream of triangles.
The moment of the trilogy, the beginning,
middle and end is passing, for a time. Say
goodbye to the happily ever after, the
fantasy of perfection, at best a
momentary rule of rigid wish,
allowed by a temporary
the journey is
being sought again,
to continue with the road
that changes but does not end.
For a long time we'll revel in the parts
we had missed, how highwaymen said we
could trust them as we rested, and then stole
the burden we didn't know was making us tired.
We will smile as they go, those ones who try to
fight others, and may be qualified to do so if
they ever finish struggling with themselves.
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.
