Failed Mayan Prophecy?

I am writing this essay on Dec. 24, or about 3 days after the winter solstice...
three days after the 'end of the Mayan (long-count) calendar.' 
For some, invoking various manner of arcane reasoning, that date was supposed to mark the end of the world. Others understood that it simply marked the end of the long-count (lasting 5,125 years) used by those excellent time-keepers, the Maya.

Yet, there were pieces of 'supporting evidence' that seemed to corroborate the notion that the date 21-12-12 had some kind of ominous significance. The researcher Terrance McKenna arrived at the same date by transposing the Chinese 'I Ching' symbols into a mathematical time-graph. (And, critics claim, by some subtle forcing of the calculations). Many people noted that the date also can be viewed as signalling the aligning of the solstice with our solar ecliptic and with the galactic plane.

In Aztec lore, the date indicates a time when the solsticial sun rises in the heart of the 'dark rift' at the center of the Milky Way. Some reasoned that the energy output from that core would amplify that of our sun, and cause unknown catastrophes. Others say it marks the completion of the last 'Great Year,' or 'Platonic Year,' the 25,920 years it takes for the Earth's axis to complete its wobbly circuit around the zodiac. Many of these latter believers were convinced that the date marks the transition of humanity's consciousness to a 'higher dimension' or vibration of existence, whether we felt anything or not.

Whatever the case, the fact is that, by objective observation, 'nothing happened' on that date, 
despite the most ardent and dire predictions for 'teotwawki' ('the end of the world as we know it,' as it's often abbreviated). So, the question has to be raised, 'What was this really about?' I.e. was all the lead-up hoopla just media hype and human mass hysteria, akin to the Y2K stuff? Or was there some significance below the surface?

My feeling is that the Maya were no fools; they made that calendar for some reason to end on that date. Pundits are already suggesting that the calendar simply rolled over, like an odometer, thru a set of zeroes, to begin again. I find that conclusion too conveniently self-serving... especially given the tenuous tenor of these times, when even scientists admit that disaster could come in a number of guises, to bring teotwawki. Several aboriginal traditions also converge around the present time with predictions of either disaster or crises of some kind (refer to Hopi, Lakota, Hindu, and other folk-lore).

McKenna's construction may be somewhat artificial, but his understanding of the time-based graph was that it measured relative 'novelty' on the planet. Novelty was a word he used to refer, basically, to the rate of change of events. Moreover, he noted exponential cycles in his graph, where each newer phase compressed all the 'novelty' of previous phases into the latest cycle. Hence, when the graph makes it's final plunge down to the base line, around 21-12-12, it indicates a burst of 'infinite novelty.'

There's an odd remark to be found in the already-odd Book of Revelation, in chapter 10: “[6] And [the angel] swore by him that lives for ever and ever [...] that there should be time no longer; [7]But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he has declared to his servants the prophets.” Most versions use the word 'delay' in place of 'time;' but it's chronos in the Greek, so judge for yourself. In prophetic context, it signals that God is preparing to wrap things up on Earth; it indicates the 'end time.'

Placing our three clues before a speculative mind, one can argue that the Mayan calendar-makers (who were also their priests) saw no point in beginning a new cycle. Their '13th baktun' would end close enough to the end of the current Age that it was futile to pretend the continuation of a following Age. Similarly, McKenna's I-Ching time-line echoes the same theme; after 21-12-12, global events go 'off the charts,' haywire, until the system implodes catastrophically-- his 'time-wave zero.'

 So, gentle reader, there's a possible understanding of the 'failed Mayan prophecy' for you. My theory, projected ahead a few months, maybe years, calls for an unprecedented swirling of totally unexpected events that will make our heads spin. Not very cheery, it's true; but better to be aware of doom than to be caught blissfully dreaming by a very rude awakening.

Chaos in Paradise

As the guru of pop-psychology in America, Dr. Phil McGraw is probably well qualified to make pronouncements on the tragic murder of school children and teachers that took place in Newtown, CT, on Dec. 14. Yet, if he joins the chorus of those seeking quick-and-easy solutions to such a complex problem, he becomes part of the problem, rather than part of the answer. (If indeed, there is a solution to this growing horror.)

Only in the last two minutes of Phil's appearance on the 'Doctors Show,' (Dec. 17) did they dare to brush on more fundamental issues underlying the phenomenon of mass-shootings by deranged individuals. Before they could get into any kind of analysis, the credits were already rolling. Keep that image in mind, for it is symptomatic of the entire manner in which the mainstream media treat all such traumatic events.

Using the power of mass media, the authorities (both seen-- i.e. politicians, and unseen-- i.e. powerful interests behind the scenes) control the complete tone of the public debate on any issue. For decades, the 'media line' has been to support all manner of 'liberal/ progressive' ideas, such as gay pride, and freedom of expression as it manifests in explicitly violent movies, and explicitly sexual music videos. At the same time, the media pretense at analyzing cases of real-life outbursts of violence (e.g. Columbine; Aurora) has consistently focused attention on immediate, proximate 'causes,' so that the implied solutions are always (and inevitably) of a superficial, futile nature.

The current anguish over bullying is a case in point. Authorities bemoan bullying and come up with all sorts of 'programs' designed to 'raise awareness' and other such amorphous tactics, (pink T-shirts, anyone?). Meanwhile, our police officers are out beating and tasering citizens who are, apparently, considered as criminals until they can prove otherwise.

There's a real disconnection between our simple-minded thinking and the reality in our midst. You can't have peace in a warlike nation; and you can't have sanity in an insane society. By any objective criteria, today's Western society is profoundly sick. We say we want peace and security, but our leaders keep starting new wars. We want to end bullying but we can't see that it's woven into the fabric of our 'free-market capitalism.' We want to end violence... but we're enthralled to watch it depicted on our TV screens for hours on end.

Yet, as Dr. Phil commented, there's no scientific correlation between the proliferation of violent, fictional programming and what's observed on the ground. First, we have to be highly skeptical of so-called science, since it has been demonstrated many times that 'science' can be sold out to those who pay the bills. (e.g. Tobacco, the classic example; also, nuclear energy; GE foods; etc.)

Second, secular society neglects, to its detriment, the recognition of spirit in the conduct of humanity. Maybe physical science will never measure the spirit, nor can it detect the influence of spiritually degenerate factors on the behavior of individual persons. Nonetheless, our common sense ought to tell us that broadcasting evil portrayals into our environment 24 hours a day must be affecting the population, and not in a positive way.

The tragic fact is that the dark genie was released from the lamp, years ago; practically speaking, it can never be captured again. I doubt that the majority are willing to give up their senselessly violent TV shows, (or, heaven forbid, their mindlessly entertaining sports and talent shows). As with tobacco, the cause-effect equation between TV programs and societal outcomes does not become evident until years have elapsed. Most people simply cannot make the connection.

Having said all that, however, I think Phil is right, to a degree. Most people would not be capable of mass-murdering their fellow beings, even when clinically mentally ill. There's an ultimate reality behind the mass-murders that's too terrifying, too outlandish, for the average person to accept. Even the lowest among us is too decent to grasp it. When you look at the pattern of world events with utterly objective eyes, it becomes obvious that the evil in our midst is planned, programmed, and orchestrated deliberately, at a 'high level.'

Sure, I know-- this is conspiracy talk... and we simply mustn't 'go there.' No, it's totally against 'the program.' What a brilliant way to keep us enslaved to the illusions created around us! Anyone who points out the bars surrounding our cage is immediately silenced as a nut case. They fabricate the prison, then they let us police it, using their embedded conditioning. Marvellous! Such a demonic system could only have been inspired by the 'father of lies,' Satan... but we can't believe in such a fairy tale in this scientific, modern age.

Whatever your beliefs, there are certain individuals who are eager agents of the satanic spirit, and who have been plotting the present destruction for centuries. These people thrive on war, chaos, and bloodshed. They invent philosophies (e.g. Communism, Fascism, Capitalism, etc.) to ensnare our minds; they instigate wars to achieve their political ends and enrich their treasury; they supply endless drugs and entertainments to drain our capacities to think and act; and they corrupt our morals by any means possible, to leave us spiritual zombies.

These secret controllers conducted their agenda with a certain amount of discretion until the beginning of the 21st century. Then they began to act overtly, starting with the giant spectacle known by its date, '9-11' of 2001. Their hubris is stunning, to the trained observer. Clues of planned 'events' are foreshadowed thru various pop channels; execution of the events is often sloppy, with obvious inconsistencies left unexplained; reporting via their media is outrageously biased;
follow-up actions (e.g. public enquiries) fall unashamedly short of the most basic standards; and so on.

Yet, they rest secure in the strength of their installed, social programming. There's even a famous 'fairy tale,' by Hans Christian Anderson, about the 'Emperor's New Clothes,' that lays out the essential elements of flim-flammery for all to see... if we but had the eyes. The exact details are even thrown right in our faces-- on the screen as 'thriller fiction,' of course. That way, the true explanations for real life imitations can be dismissed as mere fictional imaginings.

Many, if not all, of the mass-shooters are really unfortunate mind-slaves created by agencies of the hidden controllers. This is too monstrous for most normal people to comprehend... therefore, they will reject the idea out of hand. But even  Dr. Phil noted that these mass killers could not be predicted beforehand; they often appear well within the bounds considered normal in a world where norms keep getting pushed towards further limits.

Phil stated clearly that conventional psychiatry is incapable of identifying mass murderers before they act out. How can one explain this phenomenon then?... unless you accept that they have been programmed to perform certain tasks after some trigger initiates the 'buried program.' This theory is esoteric, for sure, but there exists an extensive (if reviled by the mainstream) literature on the subject of 'trauma-induced mind programming,' which is what happens to these killers, usually in childhood.

To re-cap: these horrific mass-shootings are not random, they are planned and instigated deliberately to destabilize a population. These events are used as the first step in the 'problem-reaction-solution' model that the controllers use as their main strategy to get what they want. And if you don't see what they want by now, you're really not paying any attention. It's a full police state, where all citizens are under their complete control. If you need an image, just think back to the media portrayals of the now-defunct Soviet Union.

In just a dozen years, the USA has come a long way towards a dictatorship, by leveraging the 'problem' of 'terrorism' with their 'solution.' TSA goons assume everyone is a terrorist until they've been molested (aka 'inspected') by their agents. Surveillance and wiretapping no longer requires warrants. Anyone suspected of terrorism can be arrested, possibly tortured, and held for years without charges or trial. Anyone, anywhere, identified as a terrorist can be executed by simple presidential decision. It's even worse than in the USSR, because this time there are virtually no restraints.

Finally, I have to point out the pathetic narcissism of the conditioned, American public. The loss of life by violence in America is always treated as an immense tragedy of monumental proportions. At the same time, the loss of equally innocent lives of children and civilians in far-off lands (e.g. Afghanistan, Pakistan) at the hands of American forces is dismissed with barely a shrug... if it's even acknowledged. This kind of callous disregard for the suffering of 'foreigners' is typical of early adolescents, which shows the level of maturity of the brain-dead masses.

Newtown is the latest component of the 'problem' created by the black hands of the puppeteers. The reaction, predictably, is the outrage felt by a populace that cannot feel safe anywhere in the once-fair and enchanted kingdom. Now we await the 'solution,' which surely has been prepared for just the right moment to spring on the primed public. A call for gun-control is going to seem the reasonable course of action to many, including the Ministry of Truth, as the mainstream media should now be called. The hidden agenda is to remove the last obstacle to the imposition of a complete police state on the self-proclaimed 'last bastion of freedom.'

A great many Americans have grown up with the ingrained notion that they have a constitutional right to bear (fire)arms. It will be a colossal clash between the old paradigm and its ardent believers, and the new program conjured by its New World Order manipulators. Year 2013 is shaping up to be very ugly.

What's Wrong with the World?

Well actually, everything. Really-- everything. If this response sounds unduly (radically) pessimistic, 'sorry; but when you take the time to really pursue the question, you can't avoid this conclusion.

'But, that's utter pessimism!' complain the optimists. No, I reply, that's realism.
 Optimism, in the face of overwhelming evidence of immanent disaster, is not optimism, but sheer, pig-headed denial. 
Those presiding over the accelerating destruction prefer the masses cling to their pathetic optimism, because a serious grasp of reality would shake the populace to the core.

Where to begin the litany of what's wrong, then? Answer: at the fundamentals. Let's make it clear; it's not a case of growing problems arising as a result of the increasing complexity of modern life. No, it's much deeper; it has to do with the very basis of our civilization. Especially our Western civilization.

Our 'modern way of life,' as we refer to it with a certain pride, is fatally flawed at its very core. Think of it. Our basic paradigm is a model wherein 'goods' must be produced in ever-greater quantity to satisfy ever-growing demand. If this does not happen, the system goes into recession, which entails shrinking standards of living, with weeping, wailing and teeth-gnashing.

This paradigm is a formula for eventual disaster. In a closed system-- which our finite Earth is-- you can't keep extracting resources at a constant growth rate, to produce 'goods', ad infinitum. In the words of a study produced in the 1970s, there are 'Limits to Growth.'

It's not that simple, the optimists protest. True; it gets worse. The economic model doesn't run in a merely deterministic fashion, like some inevitable law of nature. No; it is entirely a construct of human design, and hence, subject to all the vicissitudes of corruptible human nature.

As it has evolved, the Western economic model has acquired all kinds of complexity that we simply take for granted. One of the primordial elements is money. Originally a convenient medium of exchange (facilitating multiple barter transactions) money has become the great measure of success, the greatest power on Earth. The pursuit of this power has become the ultimate motivator, the instigator of grandiose achievements... and of despicable crimes.

Money is one of those things that sounds like an excellent idea. After all, we don't all have craft skills to make things for barter; but we can all perform some kind of work, and earn credits of exchange that we call money. Except that the inevitable has happened: the good idea has become a monster. The pursuit of money, in combination with the attendant notions of 'the free market,' and social Darwinism, has spawned predatory capitalism that threatens human survival.

Archimedes (or one of those Greek geniuses, back in the days before the almighty dollar) was so confident in the prowess of applied physics that he stated, 'Give me a lever, a fulcrum, and a place to stand, and I can move the world.' Much later, in Renaissance Europe, people discovered that a pile of money can do the same thing, with a lot less effort. Institutionalized money-lending (i.e. banks) took a stranglehold on the economic model, that has only gotten stronger with time.

The invention of the corporation, a soulless entity wholly devoted to the accumulation of wealth, was an important step in the social hegemony of money. Maybe it was corporations that boosted this whole religion of eternal growth. Whatever; the mixing of markets, corporations and capital combined to create monsters that everyone thought were friendly, for a while. 'See,' the people boasted, 'Western capitalism has wrought economic miracles!'

Behind the curtains of history, however, by the manipulation of the three factors, a few clever individuals attained unbelievable wealth. Instead of just being a huge heap of 'beans,' that wealth enabled those families to actually mold history. By financing certain kings and factions and so on, they fomented wars, redrew maps, and installed ideologies. Some diligent research will supply the details of how all these things were accomplished, starting with Mayer Amschel Bauer, whose family line morphed into the Rothschild dynasty that essentially runs Europe, and by extension, the world.

So, out of the abstract concept of money arose the political power to rule the world. And there's a lot more. Leveraging their enormous clout (the lure of jobs, pay-off of politicians, legal threats, etc.)  the corporations have pushed the pointed end of capitalism into every part of our biosphere, wreaking havoc with nary a care... after all, who's responsible? Corp's are mere 'entities' and their directors have 'limited liability.'  Only Satan could design something so prone to malevolence.

While the worst polluters make some cosmetic efforts to mitigate their damage, other corporate criminals pursue alternate paths to perdition. Monsanto, the champion of genetic modification (aka playing God) has been aggressively pushing its modified grains in every market, yet resisting all efforts to have its products labelled as GMOs. If GMOs are so beneficial, why are they trying to hide their use? And why do the elite insist on only certified organic food at their own tables?

Our government regulators once paid lip-service to 'the precautionary principle', that placed the onus on industry to demonstrate the safety of their initiatives. Now, both caution and principle have been simply dropped in favor of a pedal-to-the-metal rush into the great unknown. While species die out, and evidence mounts that this policy is fraught with risks, nothing slows the juggernaut of 'progress.'

Perhaps the worst aspect of corporate hegemony in society is the complete control they have grasped of our communications media. With 96% of the media business owned by only half a dozen mega-corps (in the USA, at least), our view of the world is entirely filtered by the corporate gate-keepers. All the blatantly egregious actions and policies of the global corporatocracy are spun and presented to the populace in the most flattering light. Where the media were once critics of government, they now constitute the Ministry of Truth (i.e. the lying propaganda of the rulers).

The power of money extends to every aspect of life. In education, it's the textbooks that spout the 'correct' (corporate approved) views that get published and promoted. It's the 'proper' research that gets funded in the universities, ensuring the dominance of 'the party line,' in every art and science. We live in a carefully fabricated Matrix wherein the truth is not recognized even when thrust in our faces... which it often is, but in the guise of fiction.

While Americans believe the nonsense fed them by their lying media that the USA has the best form of government in the world, the truth that most of the world gets, by now, is that it is instead, the best democracy money can buy. With virtually no spending limits on candidates, it's a frenzy for corporate 'donors.' It guarantees that politicians go to the highest bidders.

Not only that, but America's system of government departments run by un-elected, presidential appointments is unparalleled in most Western nations. These bureaucrats are largely drawn from the very corporations their departments are supposed to regulate. How are they going to restrict the profit-potential of their former employers... who are most often, also their 'post-government' employers? It's totally sick; but the average, brain-washed 'merican thinks it must be marvellous because it's made in the USA.

Corporate control of a society allows all kinds of crazy abuses. They have convinced most of the 'free world' (giggle) that adding a toxic poison to the water supply is beneficial to the citizenry. Yes; this stuff is going to prevent tooth decay! Wow; what utter crap. What next-- will they add something else to the water supply to prevent, uh let's say, AIDS? Ask yourself, how do they get away with this kind of foolishness?

In a like vein, the pharmaceutical industry exists as the biggest drug-pushers on Earth. But they make mega-fortunes on their products, while your local purveyor of cannabis is always in imminent danger of arrest and jail for his business. Those legal drugs are approved after publishing 'clinical trials' that demonstrate their statistical efficacy. But they don't have to reveal the tests that refute their efficacy! Of course, the FDA (Food and Drug Admin.) is usually headed by a shuttled executive from the drug industry, so... don't expect many refusals. Consequently, the number one cause of death in the USA is now (hold your breath) complications from prescription drugs. Progress, indeed.

With ex-industry executives running the regulatory agencies, is it any wonder that the US gov't is making concerted efforts to 'regulate' (i.e. eradicate) the health product industry? Products made from natural substances cannot be patented, and thus, can't become cash-cows like the synthesized products 'invented' by richly-paid corporate scientists. It's big industry versus small industry, and in the free-market system, we all know what Darwin said about the expected result.

The optimists (God love 'em) will say that the system will eventually correct itself, that's the beauty of 'free enterprise.' Well, I'd like to place a small bet on that. (Actually, a very large bet!) There's only one way this present self-defeating system can ever correct itself-- and that's by total collapse. Which is exactly where it's heading, at full speed now. Even secular analysts agree; see, for instance, The Fourth Turning, for a historical-cyclical study of what's occurring.

This rush towards catastrophe is no accident. The dark force that has opposed the Creator from the beginning of the world is pushing this agenda at full bore. His human accomplices think that they're working towards a system that will reward them with Earthly riches. Meanwhile, their master puppeteer knows that it's a lost cause; they're all soon going to hell together.

Why, you might ask, do the powers really in charge of the world keep themselves hidden, and sustain this pretence of democracy and freedom? Goethe had the answer centuries ago; he stated 'There are none so enslaved as those who think they are free when they are not.' It's simply much easier controlling a society when the people themselves are content to be enslaved to their illusions. Otherwise, it takes a lot of troops/police on the ground to keep the lid on. Compare Orwell's bleak dystopia in '1984' with the happily drugged inhabitants of Huxley's 'Brave New World.'

So, here we are in the second decade of the 21st century... somewhere with the worst combination of Brave New World and Oceania. While the restrictions imposed by urbane but brutal governments grow increasingly inhuman, the number of mindless TV reality and entertainment shows keeps growing. Television and electronic gadgetry have become the 'soma' of our age. Behind the lugubrious scenes tho, lurks the true reality... of Guantanamo, Bagram, Gaza, Libya, Afghanistan, ad nauseum. One day, there will be a rude awakening.

The preceding diatribe is the bad news. But, there is behind it all, good news. The present corrupt, irremediable, irredeemable system, devised and advanced by the 'father of lies,' Satan, is about to collapse spectacularly and definitively. (See Revelation 12:12). There will be no sudden airlift to safety for those who attend the right churches. Everyone will have to make their choices and deal with it.

When the destructive forces of the cosmos reach a zenith, and the diabolic sentient forces seem poised to deliver world-wide death, then our Savior will appear and will restore true order to creation. Until then, we're in for a very rough ride, one where the 'new optimists' will be the former pessimists, who have faith in the ultimate victory of the Rock of Ages.

End Times Craziness

... continues unabated. In fact, it gathers speed, as you read. The sheer magnitude of the insanity is staggering... for anyone with 'eyes to see' that is. For the majority of frogs in the metaphorical saucepan, it's just normal life on planet Earth. It is what it is, as today's contemporary generation loves to intone.

One gets the feeling that all the still sane folks are taking refuge in the last bastion of freedom, the blogosphere, all exchanging our anguished musings on various aspects of the unfolding train-wreck. The big names are now familiar to us. Regrettably, many of them are wasting energy fighting among themselves, no doubt to the glee of the madmen behind the scenes.

The rest of us unknowns toil away at our keyboards, posting our pearls of wisdom, and casting them at the feet of... who? The odd reader who happens upon our obscure websites, perhaps truly seeking the wisdom provided, or maybe just entering a misspelt URL... who knows?

Meanwhile, the destruction accelerates. We finally reached the finish line of the uniquely bizarre American pretence of selecting a head of government-- a marathon run covering most of 49 states and 12 months (minimum) and, oh yes, burning thru something like a couple billion dollars of 'donated' money. To assuage your post-election blues, there's still the inauguration games to be held in January, wherein more millions will be spent to make sure dignitaries and commoners alike are all duly entertained.

Do I sound slightly sarcastic, jaded by the banal stupidity of it? Sorry, but I just can't help it. Last month, we celebrated (if that's the word) Remembrance Day. November being the rottenest month of the year seems ideally chosen as the season when, since there's nothing better to do, we 'honor our valiant soldiers.' You know, those brave men and women who fought for our freedom, giving their lives and blood to preserve our glorious system.

This day has always troubled me; there's just something ironic about sending people off to fight and, perhaps, die, and then holding this public holiday to 'honor' them. I realized long ago that wars were events where old men sent young men off to die for dubious invented causes. Later, I found a few truly brave soldiers who admitted that the whole thing was a racket-- our armies were the enforcers for big corporations with interests in foreign countries.

Only late in life have I discovered the ultimate truth, which is, at once so bizarre and so awful that few individuals can accept it. It is that (stated bluntly) the world is run by gangsters. Sure, you think I employ literary hyperbole; but I mean it. These gangsters wear expensive suits, travel in exclusive circles, have charming manners in public, and give high-sounding speeches at important-sounding functions. They make the decisions about war and 'peace' (such as it is), about flows of currencies, the flow of 'energy' (petroleum, for all intents), the flow of guns, drugs, slaves, and most of all, deception. I almost wrote 'bull-sh*t' for deception; but this might be read by sensitive eyes.

We fortunate folks born in the 'democratic West' think the world is somehow, 'mostly sane,' with periodic outbursts of organized violence involving professional or amateur soldiers attempting to kill people for any number of ostensible reasons. We have come to take it for granted that that's just how the world works. A growing number of matrix-dwellers are starting to wake up to the realization that those manufactured excuses don't just fall out of the blue. Someone-- persons or organizations-- concocts those reasons and promotes them as 'casis belli' (the excuse for wars).

Those wars always create outcomes, which normal people consider highly negative-- death, destruction, chaos. But for the manipulators behind the scenes, the sick minds who instigated the conflicts, the results are usually positive-- profit, political gain, and consolidation of their schemes. They call it 'Ordo ab Chao'... order out of chaos. (Yes, it's printed right on the US green-back; ponder that item a while.)

But the world is in continuous chaos... so where's the order? It's coming; or so they believe. Each new outbreak of violence and war brings them a step closer to their ultimate goal-- a single government over the whole globe; their 'order' established over all. Some innocent souls actually regard this notion as wonderful. With one world government there'll be an end to international wars, and one police force fighting crime in all its forms.

Some religions actually anticipate this glorious state. That's how effective is the propaganda of the globalists. The innocent lambs know nothing about the essential corollary terms of their utopia, which involve the reduction of the Earth's population down to a 'manageable' 500 million selected individuals. How they get rid of the other pesky 6.5 billion persons is open to (very dark) speculation.

What most pundits miss is that we already are under 'one-world governance.' It may not be recognized under a UN acronym, but it's been in place for a long time. We are all under Satan's government. The satanic spirit rules behind the scenes in every area of our lives-- education, politics, economics, entertainment, science, and even religion.

That's precisely why we (society) keep failing at making things better! Think of all those 'rhetorical wars' that drag on ad-infinitum-- the 'war against crime;' the war against drugs; the war against terror; the war against bullying; the war against poverty; the war against war... all of them 'lost causes!' We can never eliminate even one of these perpetual problems because  the managers of these 'wars' do not want them to be won! Their funding, and big salaries, would dry up; and who wants that?

The ordinary Joe and Jane want a peaceful, decent world where they can get on with life. The globalist/Satanists, on the contrary, want to turn the entire world into a feudal fiefdom, with themselves (the 'one percent') lording it over the majority, who would exist purely as their slaves. They will resort to any level of chaos when they think it will further their stinking ends.

But there's a huge problem for the globalists. They are being played for suckers by their boss, the 'capo-stone' of the satanic pyramid of command and control. The human agents of evil think that they're going to ultimately inherit, by following their superior's plans, the feudal world described above. But Satan has other plans, based on higher knowledge.

As it states in Revelation 12:12-- “Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.” The great game of the ages is coming to a dramatic conclusion. In every sphere, this planet is being destroyed, as the environment and ecology are pushed beyond all ability to recover sustainably. This destruction not only consumes the Earth, but naturally, the human population as well.
At a deep, subconscious level, many people are becoming aware that we're approaching this precipice of history. Many cope with the notion by envisioning it as a beneficial crisis, wherein the Earth's inhabitants will ascend to some new, higher, conscious state of existence. Others seem to succumb to the darkness, and end their existence violently, often taking others with them.

A segment of so-called Christians grimly yet eagerly await 'translation' into heavenly realms, in rapturous deliverance from the end-time chaos they anticipate. Other 'Christians,' plus many Muslims, are expecting the one called Antichrist to make an imminent appearance, prior to the return of Christ as deliverer from evil. Jews too, await their long-expected Messiah to finally install them in their rightful place as the rulers of the world, from their capital, Jerusalem.

As much as a cadre of prescient bloggers are striving to awaken the masses to the dangers ahead, the great majority are highly resistant to anything that disturbs their  slumber. So much so, that they denounce the prophets as 'doom-sayers,' alarmists, miscreants, exploiters, and so on. In no way, tho, are they prepared to do a little investigation of their own to assess whether there might be some truth in the warnings.

So it's a period of great confusion. Globalists are hell-bent on reducing the world to an unlivable state over which they somehow rule. Religionists are sitting on their holy books, waiting for Godot, their favorite deus-ex-machina, to suddenly arrive and rescue them from the evil that the secularists insist is all in our minds. And the stupified majority would rather tune it all out and watch 'reality TV.' Crazy times!

See... I did bring this essay back to the original theme. There's a glimmer of sanity to cling to.

Bullying – Mark of the Zeitgeist

Zeitgeist: the general intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of an era.
Last month one of the saddest stories in the news concerned a 15-year-old girl who committed suicide as a result of harassment from her peers.
The story reminded reporters of previous cases where young people took their life when overwhelmed by the pain from bullying. In response, there was the expected outpouring of grief, search for culprits, questions raised over why these tragedies happen. The question of 'why' is even more acute after society recognized the problem years ago, implemented 'programs,' and attempted to do what the experts recommended. Yet the problem persists. We go back to 'Why?'

 Here's my observation. 'We,' meaning society at large, and schools, in particular, are telling our children that bullying is bad and should be stopped... while our 'adult' institutions are doing the opposite. What do I mean? Consider these illustrations. Police will send a PR officer to a school to lecture the kids about bullying... while their colleagues on the beat are out there beating a 'suspect' so badly that he (or, sometimes she) ends up in the hospital recovering from multiple injuries. Then, the police charge the suspect with 'resisting arrest.'

 Does anyone see a radical disconnection here, or is it just me? Oh, and if someone happens to photograph the cops beating up on a 'take-down' (great euphemism, btw) then they stand to be subjected to the same treatment, or at least have their cell-phone/camera confiscated. Is all this behavior by our 'peace-keepers' not bullying, or what?

We can also look at those who are often held as role-models for young people. Think of professional sports, where whatever it takes to win seems to be approved. In Canada, where hockey has the status of national obsession among a certain proportion of the populace, the game, in recent years, seems to have devolved into organized thuggery on ice. The hockey stick, besides being useful for moving a puck, has proven effective for clubbing opposing players, sometimes with tragic results. Yet the big-wigs in charge of enforcing the rules show no serious sign of wanting to end the modern gladiatorial combats on skates.

 In practically all professional sports, intimidation is considered an integral part of the game. It may be mostly verbal, but very often gets acted out in physical clashes. Either way, it's really bullying, plain and simple. And it's in our faces.

From the universities, those bastions of higher learning, emanate many of the proposals that get realized as behavior-modification programs. Yet, there's a dark side hidden within those ivy-covered walls. The custodians of knowledge have a bloodless, sophisticated form of bullying, based on their rigid, hierarchical pecking order, that ranges from lowly lecturers to lofty deans. Within the overall pyramid, there are sub-pyramids by faculty, with everyone scrambling to become tenured professors. Woe-betide any bright aspirant who produces an idea that bucks the current orthodoxy of his/her area of study... they don't call them 'disciplines' for nothing!

For those who bother to take notice, there's the world stage, where nations have been competing for regional and global hegemony from time immemorial. Since the collapse of the USSR, there has only been one 'superpower'; and it's produced total mayhem. The 21st century opened with a bang, on 9-11-01, and we've had virtually on-going war since then. And every war has been one where the world superpower has taken upon itself the imperative to invade and subdue other, sovereign countries.

Looking at the world stage, it becomes evident that the USA and NATO are on some kind of bullying binge, determined to provide secular democracy in every Islamist state, regardless of the cost in lives and money. Even in our institutions, we hear self-serving baloney along the lines of 'We aren't bullying/abusing; we're just applying enhanced interrogation techniques.' Ya, right.

None of this institutionalized bullying can be a surprise in a society that has essentially embraced a 'scientific', secular paradigm for the cosmos, and prides itself on casting religion on the scrap heap. There's a serious problem with that choice, though. The so-called science we've exalted has no place for morality; the best it can produce is what's considered the driving engine behind the theory of Evolution, the dogma that does away with God. That driving force is called 'survival of the fittest,' and has been adopted as the prevailing moral code of the capitalist paradise.

In the human sphere, survival of the fittest has come to conveniently justify predation by the strong against the weak. At minimum, Christian society paid lip-service to the concept that the measure of civilized society was how we treat the weakest members. Under neo-Darwinism, the predators have come out of the woodwork, practically boasting of how they trample the 'weak,' whom they regard as not worthy of living.

All this implosion of society is predicted in various traditions. The Hindus call this age the Kali Yuga, with the salient features outlined here. The Hopi and other aboriginal tribes see this age as a time of choice between a self-destructive status-quo and a radical change in consciousness. In the biblical eschatology, the final days are characterized by global strife and social breakdown fostered by self-centeredness.

The point is, that while we prepare programs for our kids, and document news stories on the evils of bullying, Western society shows its true colors in what it tolerates (or celebrates) in all areas of life. The news features are followed by your favorite crime drama, whose violence is the model for extreme bullying. Our politicians hold press conferences to convince us that War is Peace. In short, the spirit of bullying is broadcast into the very aether, subtly pervading every aspect of our mental/moral landscape.

If there's a zeitgeist of the third millennium, we have created it. We could likewise dismantle it. The question then, is 'Do we really want to?'

The Truth Is Out There!

We've heard that expression a lot, these days-- the truth is out there. But what does it really mean? Let's consider the implications.

By 'out there,' one may be referring to the fact that, regardless of the variety of theories that are proposed to explain something, there exists one explanation-- somewhere, out there-- that is 'true,' i.e. that 'fits the facts.' The problem then, is how to find that truth, intermingled as it is with all the 'pseudo-truths.'

'Out there' is also modern slang for esoteric; i.e. things that are hidden in knowledge that's accessible only to adepts. So the implication is that truth is too 'far out' to be accepted by the average person.

There are still people out there who are confused about truth. They don't know what it is, arguing that it is a 'relative concept;' that it's subjective, etc. No! By definition, there is only one truth; truth describes what really exists. If you want to cling to a relative reality, a pseudo-reality, how do you expect to live in a consistent universe? If there's no such thing as absolute truth, then how can you plan the next moment, let alone the next year? Come off it! Truth is out there; all around us, every day, as the basic laws of nature.

Humanity's big challenge is one that faces every person alive-- what is the truth about our situation, the human predicament? Sure, we are constantly told-- by authorities, by the media, etc.-- certain things about the world that we are supposed to accept, without question, as true. Let's call this manufactured picture our meta-paradigm. This includes our entire world-view, our value system, religious views, and so on.

Every culture has it's own meta-paradigm, and hence, the kind of society it is now has been largely molded by that shared, group paradigm. That explains why the 20th century saw such a concerted effort to homogenize global culture. Those who want to gain total control of our perceived reality must first ensure that everyone has the same views on virtually everything. (That was the premise of the Matrix movie series-- all had fallen under the techno-spell.)

It doesn't take much reflection to see how successful the manipulators have been in creating a single meta-paradigm distributed across the 'civilized' world. Even before the collapse of the 'alternate paradigm' (i.e. Communism) it was remarkable how uniform our cultural characteristics had become, thru-out the Western and Eastern societies. Think of our cities and their steel/concrete structures and streets; our music and it's rock beat and electric impulse;  TV broadcasts and global interest in so-called 'reality' shows; and on it goes. The languages may differ, but the patina is tending to ever-greater uniformity of style and content.

Yet the devils seem to play by curious rules whereby they must divulge publicly exactly what mischief they are foisting upon us. Either that, or they enjoy flaunting the truth in our faces, confident that we are too mesmerized to notice, and even if we do, it will be of absolutely no avail. That in-your-face taunting is the 'true' meaning of the throw-away expression, 'The truth is out there!'

Despite unprecedented amounts of misinformation, disinformation, and outright lies inundating the very aether surrounding us, the truth of our world experience is also floated before our very noses!

Amid all the falsehoods proclaimed daily as 'news' by our presstitute media, often times one will hear genuine-- and perhaps ingenuous-- statements of truth, inserted as if to somehow balance all the associated nonsense. For instance, former presidents, now free of their obligations to the mob, will utter clear fact into the mikes, knowing it will make no difference to the big picture.

Hollywood movies, while hugely responsible for socially programming our minds with demonic drivel, can also (sometimes in the same vehicle) speak complete truth; often exact descriptions or depictions of how the manipulators operate, hidden in plain sight. As prime example, we have the Matrix series, that depict in allegory the kind of control system that has been constructed around society, not with technology or force, but with mass psychology.

Certain movies have characters who go on a rant, shouting in our faces exactly how television is used to program our minds and direct our thinking (remember Network?); or how the USA, far from being the 'greatest nation on Earth,' is really a 3rd-world nation on numerous social-success scales.

The media can flaunt truth in our faces because they know it will fly over the heads of the vast majority of their audience, such is the robustness of their  accumulated hypnosis. The intentional use of every new technology towards the accomplishment of 'the great work of ages' (as understood by the Masons and their ilk) has been going on for centuries.

Of note, the invention of the printing press initially had the same salutary influence among the masses (of course, mostly poor, and kept ignorant) as the Internet has had in the late 20th/early 21st centuries. Availability of great books, notably the Bible, freed ordinary people from the 'helpful interpretations' of the authorities (largely, the Church) in understanding religion and the world. This breakthrough led to new insights, rejection of enslaving beliefs, and a restructured Europe. Yet the printing press had hardly achieved those benefits when it was co-opted to produce volumes of less enlightening content. Eventually, mass printing provided everything from advertising to pornography to whatever. By the late twentieth century, so much 'stuff' was being printed every day that no-one could possibly even catalog the deluge of verbiage.

Television had the potential to truly improve the lot of humanity. Think of it; we could have broadcasts of morally uplifting, educational, and thought-provoking material that would enlighten and ennoble. Instead, we have exactly the opposite spewing forth from the studios. Levels of depicted violence and perversion have jumped to mind-numbing magnitude-- if the masses were able to remember beyond last week's Idol winner.

So, yes, the truth is indeed, out there, free for the taking. Your challenge is how to recognize it amid the daily barrage of 'information' that now streams into your consciousness via an array of technologies. Originally, we had books, and they were relatively hard to produce, and expensive. Then came newspapers, which were cheap enough to be produced daily, and thrown away after reading. Next we had radio which could be listened to while doing something else. Then came television, which demands and commands complete attention, and fosters a vacuous mind. Next we had computers which were of mere hobby interest until connection to the Internet made them all-purpose information sources. Now we have mobile telephones that are also pocket computers, capable of keeping us 'connected' (i.e. shackled) 24/7. And, notice; all these technologies presently co-exist and overlap. Hence, each individual on Earth has never had so much information thrown at him/her.

Only by raising your consciousness, your awareness level, can you hope to discern truth amid the garbage. By re-connecting with your common sense (something utterly discouraged by the education system) you can begin to detect 'data' that rings untrue, the falsehoods spewed out by the control system. Gathering information from several sources, representing various facets of an issue, you can piece together a probable scenario... as opposed to simply absorbing the pre-packaged 'story' disseminated by the media.

Nobody said the truth would be easy to find; nor easy to accept. Only by expanding your imagination will you be able to digest some very unpalatable truths that rule our reality. Our culture does everything to atrophy our imagination. Hollywood does the fantasizing for us, so you don't have to. The school system rewards the rote answers from the experts, not your creative insights. Get back in touch with your imagination... but, again, temper it with common sense.

As they say, the truth will set you free-- but first it's going to upset you! Don't quit the quest at that point of irritation. Work with it; go deeper before abandoning an annoying new concept. Don't give up because it doesn't accord with your pre-conceptions (and acknowledge what your pre-conceptions are). In other words, be courageous if you want to be a seeker of truth.

How many atheists just 'know' that the Bible is nonsense... without ever reading it with an open mind? How many believers just know that the Bible says this or that, without ever reading it themselves? How many people hate governments, yet cannot believe that these governments would do things to harm them? What you don't know may be harmful to your health and survival. What you DO know may, similarly, be detrimental to your existence.

The truth is out there. Now, either you find it and benefit from it, or be overwhelmed when truth finally is thrust in your face and can no longer be denied. The choice rests with each of us.

What I Know- Mark Well!

In days of yore, when a person attained a certain seniority, as determined generally by years, people would often ask them first, the secret of their longevity, and second (and only optionally) what they could or would tell those who follow. Neither of these traditions survive the modern world, where everyone knows that ‘modern medicine’ is the obvious answer to Q1, and Google the answer to everything else. However, for the exercise, and
snubbing the new norms, I will attempt to record the wisdom of my years… 
for the benefit of ‘whoever,’ which may include no-one.

The following observations  (opinions, whatever you want to label them) did not spring full-blown into my mind upon a milestone birthday. Some of them I’ve known for a long time; others developed over the age, sometimes appearing too soon, and being rejected for their audaciousness until I had matured enough to accept them. I present them here, not necessarily in order of importance, but more as they come to mind.

1st conclusion is one that took serious decades of trial and error. It is, simply, that religion is a hoax, often a deadly one. That statement must be immediately clarified by my 2nd assertion, that I believe in God in a not-unusual sense as the Creator of all that is, and as a spiritual force involved in human affairs. So consider me ‘small-r’ religious, but opposed to all those humanly-organized, and invariably misguided attempts to corral God and codify a system of worship. True religion is a relationship between each individual and God. Those who would erect structures around this relationship, package it, market it, and then impose it, are doing the greatest disservice to the God they claim to worship.

3rd gem is that virtually ALL humanly organized systems are nothing but games; games invented to exalt certain individuals above their fellow travellers on this brief, earthly sojourn. Clearly ‘religion’ constitutes one of those ‘games.’ But there are numerous others, such as armies, stock markets, higher education, professional sports, entertainment, (contemporary) science, and so on. If you can’t see what I’m getting at with one or another of these examples, then give it a few years—you just haven’t been subjected to it long enough. And, these humanly-devised activities should more accurately be designated as 'rackets,' as in 'War is a racket' (google it); but I'll use the less inflammatory term.

The common thread in all the games is that they are organized with built-in hierarchies of command, glorification of ‘star players,’ elaborate rules of play (complete with rewards and sanctions) that govern advancement and recognition, and so on. And, most importantly, they are all completely artificial; that is, they’ve been invented by human ingenuity. There is no natural, organic method of doing any of these systems. Even science, that loves to regard itself as so ‘objective,’ has devolved into a labyrinth of academic gamesmanship, sucking for sponsors, producing 'papers,' and basically selling to the highest bidder.

The vital point to take from the games paradigm is that it doesn’t ultimately matter how you perform according to the system’s criteria—it’s all BS, anyway! Lest you think I’m a genius or a nincompoop for making this cynical remark, let me remind you that the Hindus knew this fact millennia ago. They refer to all the world’s systems as ‘maya,’ that is, illusion. More precisely, they are self-delusions. We believe in them because we’ve been taught since birth to believe they are real, that they matter. As implied above: these games were all invented to create a matrix within which players (the populace) find their level of competence. The ambitious rise to the upper echelons, reaping measurable (yet artificial) rewards, basking in adulation, and usually lording it over those who ‘score’ below them.

Anyone with a bit of imagination can apply my paradigm to any of the examples  cited above, and notice that the characteristics I mention can be found. One other comment about the games is that they are in a constant state of growth. As the number of players increases, they keep getting more complicated, allowing new avenues for clever players to thrive. For examples—the stock market spins off ‘derivatives;’ armies incorporate ‘intelligence,’ psy-ops, high-technologies, etc.’ universities offer ever-more-specialized degrees; new sports are added to the Olympic Games; and on it goes.

With the above in mind, the reader should be able to acknowledge my next assertion—that money is the biggest game of all. The invention of money was a major step in creating a do-all scoring system for this race. (Hmm… could that be why humankind is called a ‘race’… as in another sport?) Money provides the incentive, the reward, the measure of success, and finally, the power, that are essential features of any good game; and life is the only game in town.

But, as the Hindus discovered, all this frenetic fumbling and grubbing for greenbacks is, in actuality, illusory, and self-defeating. What humanity needs is not a giant game-system, with artificial scoring and misplaced allegiance. What we need is a lofty vision of existence, one characterized by spiritual, rather than material values. One where individuals matter more than things and ‘goals;’ and where they are valued for their humanity rather than for their functions.

If you are with me up to this point, you may possibly be ready to make the final, aweful leap to my biggest, most astounding conclusion about life. This is the crazy fact that human history has not just happened, haphazardly (as the history books would lead us to believe, typically). The truth is so bizarre, so counter to the mental conditioning we get from cradle to grave, that the majority of people cannot accept it. Instead, they retreat to the comfort of denial, resting in the soothing spells of the trained spokesmen of the hidden puppeteers, those who spout the dogma of the ruling elite without ever revealing those who pay their wages.

Yes, history has been, and is being propelled in a very specific direction, over the ages, by a small cadre of individuals. Those individuals are persons who have invented some of the ‘games’ cited herein, or developed spin-offs, and have exploited the rules to ensure that they inevitably win. They are descendants of a limited number of dynasties (some say 13 only) worldwide, who regard themselves as self-appointed over-lords of the vast majority, whom they consider inferior and needing their rulership. These people have schemed, labored, deceived, murdered, and done whatever necessary to advance their plan. That plan (incredible as it may sound) is nothing less than to ensconce themselves as rulers over a reduced global population, effectively regressing humanity to a neo-feudal system of governance, where they have all the privilege, and the masses exist for their exploitation.

This outlook only appears insane because we have been raised in a inverted world—one where evil is called good, insanity is called normal, and illusion is accepted as reality. If one can free him/herself of this carefully crafted cocoon of consciousness, then one finally starts to see the world as it truly is. It took me more than 50 years to peel the filters from my perceptions. And it was a process that took place in stages. The good Lord knew that I wasn’t able to reach the truth in one leap, so he gently guided me from my first big ‘epiphany’—that being religion—to further, all-encompassing revelations.

Yet multiple millions of humans will soon have to confront this discomfiting truth—that they’ve been manipulated for eons by evil, self-serving elitists who want to destroy the majority and enslave the remnant. As validation of this view, it is quite revelatory that  many ordinary people have awakened to the concept by demonstrating against the '1%' (the elite) who enslave and impoverish the '99%.'

To put it bluntly, the world is being run by criminals, a political-economic mafia. Virtually every country and most systems are under their control or influence. They are now arrogantly flaunting their ghoulish game in our faces. If you still doubt, just do a little research on the 2012 Olympic Games as a major instance. Probably, most people will not be capable of digesting such a bitter pill; they will effectively go mad, and/or perish, in the short or long term.

All of which brings me to the next big revelation (as I see it) which is that this world, this planet, is a mere few years away from destruction—the end of this age. Sure, this is another bizarre, incredible (literally) assertion that most readers will attribute to a kind of mental illness. However, those who glibly make that assumption are, invariably, persons who haven’t bothered to make the slightest effort to investigate the clear signs before our collective eyes. In ages past, (even as recently as 25 years ago) people may have had an excuse. But today, we have the Internet and worldwide web. As much as this technology can be misused (as can every human invention) it has provided 21st century man with unparalleled information access.

You might argue that television and radio already give us worldwide information, but there’s a serious flaw in that logic. What has happened is that the elitists have gained control over all the major communications media, with the result that only their approved message gets delivered, and that message is conducive to their ultimate, globalist plan. Only the Internet allows the diligent to obtain ‘unapproved news’ from around the world.  Sure, I understand that there’s a huge amount of ‘noise’ on the ‘Net—misinformation, disinformation, speculation, bias, and sheer nonsense. It’s true; but amid all the chaff, the noise, there is a signal, true news, clear views, that constitute valuable knowledge.

My point here is that after years of sifting the information available on the Net, I can arrive at no other conclusion than that the current physical turmoil in the world (again, you’ll have to face this fact yourself) is due to the approach of a giant entity in our region of space. Known as Planet X, or Nibiru, this body has been causing a variety of physical effects ranging from climate instability, earthquakes, fireballs, to sinkholes, and mass deaths of bird flocks and fish schools.

Everything is coming together in these first years of the third millennium. The wickedness of the materialists is flourishing like noxious weeds in a farm field. Signs are clearly discernable in nature, in the weather around us, in the ground beneath our feet, in the skies above. While basking in our progress, destruction lurks in a shaky future. Information abounds as never before, yet ignorance reigns supreme among the televiewing audience. Our leaders speak empty words of peace while plotting the next wars. Corporations fight to be persons, while working mindlessly and recklessly to consume the world’s resources. Atheists scorn God with nothing to cause their cosmos but an illogical explosion of matter from nothing.

All these things are accepted as normal… and you think I’m crazy for believing in the Bible. Yet the Bible and other holy scriptures foretold much of what is unfolding at the present time. Of course, it’s not spelled out in descriptive tweets that modern readers expect. But the outlines are there for those who bother to put in a little effort to understand, rather than simply dismiss what isn’t right in your face.

Jesus told a parable about ‘weeds’ allowed to grow until harvest time, which he stated represented wicked people flourishing until the end of the age. He also spoke about other signs: ‘wars and rumors of wars,’ (Iran, anyone?) earthquakes in ‘diverse’ (i.e. unexpected) places, signs in the heavens (google ‘fireballs’) and so on. Most tellingly, Jesus stated that conditions at the end of the age will resemble those that characterized the days before the Deluge. Scripture tells us that in those days, evil ran rampant, yet people carried on life as if things would never change. Does that sound familiar?

Many would dismiss me as a ‘prophet of doom;’ as if putting a handy label on a pest will somehow eliminate the threat. It’s not so simple. Until you, cher lecteur, take the initiative to do a little research, you can’t just dismiss my outlandish views as wrong. But, as I stated, it’s another thing I’ve learned with maturity—broad is the route to error, and many there are who take it; while the way of truth is narrow and steep, and few are they who bother to pursue it.

We are living in the valley of decision. If it isn’t totally obvious at this moment, it very soon will be. Each of us will have to decide; will we drift along the broad way of the material world that leads surely to death and destruction; or will we turn our heart to the ineffable One who Created reality?

Final Choices

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! (Is 5:20-21)
Most of the 'heresies' of the Biblical faith are old news; they've been seen in centuries past, perhaps with different labels, and with slightly differing emphasis. They mostly stem from the original error of gnosticism, the belief that 'salvation' (or ascension, or enlightenment) comes from studying esoteric science that will transmute base ignorance into the gold of godly knowledge. (Alchemy is but an allegory for this transformation.)

Today, another curious belief seems to be gaining increased traction, due probably, to the Internet. This theory stands the story of Genesis on its head, claiming that the 'serpent' in the Garden of Eden (i.e. Satan) was really the friend of mankind, while 'God' was the mean spirit! How's that? By advising Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, state these new heretics, the serpent wanted mankind to have access to all knowledge, not just the restricted portion that this God allowed. God was cheap with his blessings, they say, and feared sharing his full knowledge with his new creatures, mankind.

I must say, when I first encountered this 'Edenic role-reversal,' I was taken aback. There is just enough odor of possibility in this view that it could, no doubt, convince those morally ambivalent people who couldn't understand the Bible anyway. Sure enough, the same theory has reappeared on other sites, and put forth as fact.

In effect, the promoters of this view are saying that 'Satan is God, and God is the real Devil.' This is the belief proclaimed by Aleister Crowley and other satanists. God, they say, is a cosmic kill-joy, who made man with wondrous faculties and then forbade him to indulge his faculties to the full. Their solution is to turn to Satan and his urging that 'everything is permissible.'

A lot of misguided souls, those raised in an environment of moral relativism or amorality, goaded on by the entertainment media that recognize no limits, are all too ready to buy this heresy. It's a heady message-- if it feels good, do it! Why not? shrugs a generation of atheists, who can't believe anything they can't see... unless of course, a 'scientist' tells them it exists.

The thing is, God does not force his ways on people; we have to make the decision ourselves which path we'll follow. Every individual must decide, during his earthly lifetime. Like a child learning to walk, we stumble and fall many times before succeeding. We learn what approach to living leads to true success-- the way of self-centeredness ('evil') or the way of other-centeredness ('good,' the Godly way). There are only these two choices, ultimately.

In these apocalyptic times approaching the end of this age, we are seeing the fruit of good and evil mature. It is exactly as Jesus foretold in his parable of the wheat and tares (Matthew 13:24-30). God is represented as a man who sowed good seeds in his field; Satan is the enemy (literally, too) who planted weeds among the wheat. The farmer lets both crops grow to maturity, so as not to risk harming the wheat. The harvest is the judgement at the end of the age. Jesus specifically cites 'those who practice lawlessness,' (vs 41) as being cast into the fire.

What is 'lawlessness' than calling evil good, and good evil? That's what the lawless do! They don't technically eliminate all laws; that would be anarchy, and quite obvious. No; the lawless scum of today are those who are experts at abusing the system. (I call them scum because they generally rise to the top, where they fester and pollute the body below.) They twist laws and logic to make themselves look good, and their accusers evil. They are masters of deceit; lies roll from their mouths with no trace of hesitation.

So, dear readers, here we are close to the harvest. The seeds have sprouted and matured into ripeness-- there's only 'wheat' or 'weeds;' nothing in between. We are witnessing as never before, the warped logic of the 'captains of industry' as they justify the continued pillage of the planet. We are seeing the political heads play their geo-political games of deception, always ready to justify as 'humanitarian' their next attack on some innocuous nation. The tigers/skunks are showing their stripes... for those willing to observe.

It is clearer than ever before, this dichotomy between the followers of God's way and the followers of Satan's way. Yet, how many onlookers are still swaying in the breezes of indecision; still not concerned enough to raise their heads and see the choice facing them?

Sad to say, many of those who are deceived regard themselves as Christian. Their pastors rant on about abortion, homosexuality, and other sexual sins, yet they cheer when the US army invades 'pre-emptively' (i.e. immorally) a sovereign nation, or uses drones to kill civilians. These putative Christians seem to see nothing amiss that their government can spend trillions of dollars on wars, while millions of children and adults in poor countries die every year for lack of simple water and basic food. Their deity is not God, but the flag!  Are these followers the ones that Jesus stated he would denounce with the words 'I never knew you'?

Maybe the end of the world will not come tomorrow. Maybe the world will have more time to make the final choice. But, for certain, the end of your world could come at any time! We don't have to wait until 'Armageddon' before making our own, personal decision. In this uncertain world, don't be like St. Augustine, who prayed, 'Change my heart, Lord... but not just yet.' The time to choose is now.

Final Act - Part 2

An astute reader noticed a discrepancy between my last two essays. 
In 'Death of Truth,' he notes, I implied that the great majority prefer not to think for themselves, preferring entertainment over information. Then, in 'The Final Act,' I assert that the big mistake of humankind was to pursue 'knowledge' (as symbolized by the fruit tree in Eden). Is this a contradiction?

The Canadian philosopher, John Ralston Saul, discusses six basic faculties of the mind-- memory, imagination, common sense, ethics, intuition, and reason. Of these, Saul is most suspicious of, and reluctant about, reason. By "reason," he means applied logic, or method set free from the restraints of the other five qualities. He argues that under the modern corporatocracy (that the West, particularly the USA, has become) reason assumes a perverted and disproportionate authority, and other qualities are suppressed. 

More than that predominance, tho, there's an even bigger, more sinister problem associated with the exaltation of 'reason.' It is that-- how to put it delicately?-- 'BS baffles brains,' as a colleague of mine used to say. What he meant is that a verbal assault employing a lot of sophisticated-sounding 'baffle-gab' mixed with a modicum of apparent logic-- and coming from an authority-- can push people into all manner of illogical or immoral or destructive actions.

We have seen this tactic invoked time after time over the decades, to push our nations into wars the common people never wanted (or even understood properly) with far-off, generally poverty-stricken countries that posed no danger to us. The same kind of 'applied reason' has introduced us to various other, subtle, social policies that, in the long run, are proving ruinous.

A wide open immigration policy in European nations has led to increasing tensions between the indigenous populations and the immigrants, who come from predominantly Islamic countries, and who have tended to integrate very little in their new home. The capitalist imperative for 'de-regulation' of markets has led to extreme abuses of the environment, and to the legalized theft of billions of public funds thrown at the Wall St. Investment bankers as 'rewards' for their deliberate abuses of an unregulated industry.

Other examples abound; but the point is that all these disasters are man-made; they were all packaged and sold to the public as 'good ideas' that must be implemented. The rationale always sounded so good-- more peace; more tolerance; more capital (sure, for the 1%); and so it goes.

The problem with 'reason' then, is that it can be so easily high-jacked by blustering opportunists. Scientific studies (oh, so rational) can be easily skewed to support a desired conclusion. Experts can be bought; opinions can be swayed by the spending of advertising dollars; statistics can be sliced and diced in numerous ways. All the information that we so rationally use as input to our decisions can be altered to point us in a particular direction. All it takes, fundamentally, is sufficient money. And for certain factions, money is no object!

So, if we cannot rely on our reason, one can lament, then what else is there? We've rejected divine inspiration as superstition (and rightly so, in most cases, since this is another claim that too often proves to be mere human expediency). Is there no option?

J. R. Saul enumerated six mental faculties; yet Western civilization has, for centuries, exercised almost exclusively one only-- i.e. reason/logic. What about the other five? I'd argue that the faculties of mind were endowments of the Creator, intended to give us the necessary tools to thrive. It was a devilish plan that convinced us to let all those tools atrophy, except for the one that is so vulnerable to deception!

While reason is entirely a 'left brain' function (after all, we can program computers to make rational decisions) the other faculties are of the 'right brain.' (Altho I use the terminology, for familiarity, I don't necessarily believe literally in the right/left hemisphere distinction.)  It seems that the right brain functions are the ones that are (or can be) attuned to the Infinite.

In the world envisioned by J.R. Saul, “individuals would live in harmony with themselves and others around them, guided by common sense, tempered by ethics, animated by imagination, inspired by intuition, constrained by memory and moderated by reason.” Would this not produce a kind of paradise on Earth, in contrast to the dog-eat-dog struggle for existence that our over-lords tell us is the 'natural order' of life, where Evolution is the religious dogma, and 'survival of the fittest' its stark ethic?

Going back, finally, to the Biblical garden, the tree of knowledge represented this exaltation of knowledge obtained by reason alone; and we are seeing today where it takes us. In 'The Death of Truth,' my point was that individuals must 'wake up;' stop sleep-walking in the miasma of denial and escapism. To do that, they must use the dormant mental faculties that were suppressed by hyper-reason.

Notice how our school system virtually stamps out the faculties of imagination and common sense, with its insistence on 'right answers' derived from approved logic. Even memory is, in the new curricula, dismissed as 'too routine' or whatever. Movies and television have, to a vast extent, supplanted innate imagination and intuition-- why bother, when Hollywood has done it all for you? As for ethics, well it all seems to flow from Darwinian causes, as noted above. Again, the media have pushed society, wholesale, into a brave new world of 'anything goes; if it feels good, do it!'

Which is to say that there appear to be forces at work that are bent on corrupting the very faculties of mind that are necessary to extract us from the hyper-rationality trap. This is no accident, I assert. This assault on the mind is, crucially, the characteristic battle of the age.

The human race took a wrong turn in falling for the 'sin of pride;' i.e. we are endowed with such magnificent reasoning brains that we can achieve anything we put our minds to. Taken to the extreme, we don't just 'shoot ourselves in the foot;' no, we destroy ourselves and the planet, too!

The desirable course of action would have been for mankind to utilize ALL the God-given faculties that distinguish humanity. By exercising the mind under the direction of the Creator, we could have remained in equilibrium with the natural world, learning to live in harmony with creation and with each other.

Have I reconciled the dilemma? I realize that I've probably raised more questions than were apparent before; such is the path of enlightenment. But, I hope that the boundaries of the problem are better defined, and its dimensions better understood. More to follow (probably).

The Final Act

In these nervous early years of the 3rd Millennium, what we are experiencing is the final act of a drama that has been playing out for several thousand years. 
It is a conflict that has been raging between two forces, two ideologies, over the centuries. This drama is now in the crisis stage, where the situation is approaching criticality, and the battle-lines becoming ever sharper. Soon, everyone will have to make a choice, and decide to which ideology he/she pledges allegiance.

What two forces could possibly have been contending for thousands of years? It is the basic dichotomy between good and evil. These simple words are more than just adjectives; they capsulize opposing modes of thinking. The concept of 'good' embraces the notion that every individual person is valuable and deserving of life. Conversely, the basis of evil is selfishness, the belief that no-one else matters but the big 'I'.

While it may be purely allegorical, the biblical story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden illustrates the crux of the dilemma facing mankind. The prototypical couple are presented with two choices, represented by two trees. Genesis 2:9 states: “In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” God warns them that eating the fruit of the tree called 'the knowledge of good and evil,' will result in their death. A curious entity called 'the serpent' comes along and convinces the woman to eat the fruit, and the man follows suit. When questioned by God, the woman replies, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate” (Gen 3:13). She acknowledged that she'd been duped by the serpent being.

Concerning the other tree, not much is written except this verse: (Gen 3:22)  And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and [lest he] live forever.” Apparently, the fruit of this tree would impart immortality... which would be very dangerous after they had eaten of the other fruit, that of knowledge.

What is this all about? It's about the two big choices facing every person, and collectively, the whole human race. The tree of knowledge represents human reason-- the idea that every individual can use his/her own ability, apart from God, to determine what's good and what's evil. At the racial level, it stands for humanity's rejection of believing in and following God for guidance in all our ways. Symbolically, this tree is the origin of gnosticism, the belief that one can obtain knowledge (gnossis, from Greek) by arcane means that are independent of God and his guidance.

The tree of life, conversely, represents what it says- life in a fulfilling sense, guided by God, and hence, resulting in only good. Had Adam and Eve passed the test, and declined to eat of the tree of knowledge, as instructed by God, they would eventually have been allowed to partake of the tree of life. Instead, because they had taken the irrevocable step, they had to be prevented from having eternal life since it would have become an everlasting nightmare.

As it is, everyone must die, which under the circumstances of the world created by 'homo sapiens' (reasoning man), is a merciful end to the woes that assail us. To those who shun the notion of God and an after-life, death becomes the final end, followed only by nothingness. To those who believe the scriptures (of most faiths) this life ends, but we will continue to exist in a new, spiritual form.

You can look at history and see that humanity has drifted away from a largely theo-centric view of reality-- i.e. where the notion of God, or of gods, is the background assumption. Today, at least in the scientific Western societies, atheism (secular humanism) is the predominant paradigm. Even nominally religious adherents behave basically in the same manner as secular society. Using human reasoning, Neitche stated that 'God is dead,' and Freud implied that man invented God, rather than vice-versa.

The 20th century was the bloodiest in our recorded annals; all while we were making unparalleled 'progress' (ostensibly) in the sciences and engineering. Every invention from the fertile mind of logical man has the potential to be used for good or evil. And, as history demonstrates, if it has the potential, it inevitably will be used for evil, every time!

We have let our industries pollute our environment, the very air we breathe and the water we drink, because our leaders think that profit is more important than quality of life. It's not simply 'quality of life' as they blather; it's life itself, survival, that's at stake. It may take a few more generations to manifest, but we are seeing today unprecedented rates of debilitating diseases that were rare, if not unknown, just a generation or so ago. Fertility rates are dropping; males producing less sperm; deformed babies being born; epidemic and chronic diseases running rampant.

The phenomenon of bee colony collapse eludes our understanding, and has the potential to drastically reduce food production. Radiation from the reckless use of depleted uranium weapons and from careless design of nuclear reactors permeates the global atmosphere, and is much worse than authorities will admit. Animal species of all kinds are disappearing under the stress of human encroachment. In America and elsewhere, the 'precautionary principle' has been tossed in the dust-bin, and companies like Monsanto have free hand to promote and sell their genetically-modified organisms in place of traditional seeds for farming.

The examples cited above are merely the most egregious ones that demonstrate our headlong rush towards what amounts to racial suicide. Sure, the optimists have this pathetic faith that, come what may, we will muddle thru... and even thrive in some yet-to-arrive utopia that will miraculously spring from the rational mind of men when all seems lost. This kind of thinking simply illustrates how deluded mankind  can become under the paradigm of the 'tree of knowledge.' This is the thinking of the adolescent mind that has always had its needs met by more mature custodians. But secular atheists don't believe in any other custodian apart from ourselves. Where does that leave them?

While the common people talk about, and long for, peace, our leaders give us the Orwellian double-speak that 'war is peace.' They spout this nonsense... and send our young people off to some distant land to kill strangers that never bothered them, and to be sacrificed on the altars of corporate profit.

Some readers may object that most humans desire, even strive for, good. It's the leaders who drag us into the endless wars, who approve of destructive industrial activities, in short, who are evil. And this view is correct, but does not absolve the rest of us from responsibility, or from having to make the choice between the way of caring for others, or the way of selfishness.

Shakespeare put it this way: “The fault is in ourselves, not in our stars, that we are underlings.” His character was referring to the belief in fate, but we could also think of it as referring to the human 'stars' who run our world. Most of us prefer to be entertained than to study, even in the mildest sense of the word. We'd rather leave the decisions to someone else than have to learn enough to make them ourselves.

What has happened in the USA is the epitome of what happens when men apply their best reasoning into designing a society. Think of it. The American constitution used to be hailed as the highest example of a governance model. The American populace regarded itself as a beacon on a hill; the New Atlantis, a present utopia, and so on. The awful reality is finally beginning to dawn on many people, both within its borders and without-- the USA has become an abominable image of what it aspired to be!

As described in the Book of Revelation, the once-luminous virgin clothed with the sun, has grown into the debauched harlot riding a scarlet beast. Now, I'm not saying that is the interpretation of the scripture; merely that the words echo what has taken place, historically, for this one nation. If the US, and its system ('democratic capitalism') is the best that human reason can devise, and in barely two centuries it has turned rotten to the core; then how much hope can anyone seriously retain that reason shall somehow lead us to earthly nirvana?

This century is showing the world's population the true, mature fruit of the tree of knowledge. Regrettably, it will have to get much worse still before the die-hard, optimistic, secular humanists finally get it-- we can't save ourselves! Human reason will lead only to death-- individual death, and collective destruction. (See proverbs 14:12).

Sure, it's true that 'religions' have equally failed to ever create utopian societies. Every religion quickly falls under the control of men guided by the way of evil. It's the lot of mankind to need organizational structures to achieve things; and as soon as structure is in place, the opportunists rush in to occupy it. The great messengers of God did not found religions; that aberration was the idea of their followers.

But, if each of us were raised to develop a personal understanding of the Creator, and individual openness to His subtle guidance, things might be different. Had our primordial ancestors avoided the allure of the tree of knowledge, we could have developed the planet into a paradise.

As validation of the maligned scriptures, the present state of the world reflects exactly what was written so long ago. As the book opened with a symbolic pair of fruit trees in the middle of a garden, so this chapter of human history is drawing to a close with the ripened fruit of the prohibited tree of knowledge. In the past, we thought we had options; but today, there's no middle ground as the bounds of the dichotomy are delineated. There are only two choices facing mankind-- life or death. (See Deuteronomy 30:18-20 as a similar choice facing the ancient Israelites.)

The arc of destiny is approaching completion. The forbidden fruit has brought death to every person ever born, and is now bringing destruction to the whole race as we come to the end of the Age of Reason. Sadly, there is no avoiding the calamities that will soon assail the world; what has been prophesied will come to pass. But there is still time for everyone who reads these words to make the awesome choice for themselves. Forget about the swollen heads who scoff at the notion of God-- let them suffer the consequences of their arrogance! Listen, instead, to the 'still, small voice' within your heart that speaks life to your soul.

Death of Truth

The greatest feat of magick in history, the greatest hoax ever perpetrated, was accomplished before a global audience on Sept. 11, 2001. 
Being such a complex operation, it was inevitable that there were glitches, some of which were anticipated beforehand, others that were not. Anyone who observed the events of that day, and who thought about the explanations provided by the US government and other commentators, could not avoid becoming either confused or skeptical, at the least.

The 'success' of the whole operation rested firmly on the cooperation of the media, in particular, and crucially, on television. The other, underlying, critically important ingredient in the success of the 9-11 magick show is human psychology. Like all magic tricks, only by exploiting the weaknesses of the human psyche could this psy-op be pulled off.

Yet, there were giant, fundamental flaws in the overall scenario; flaws that anyone with even elementary understanding of physics, chemistry and logic would be able to detect. If we truly had an independent press, and analytical journalists, and honest editors, those glaringly obvious inconsistencies would have been immediately highlighted in the media, and explanations demanded of the authorities. Instead, the mass media did the exact opposite. They repeated the official stories with nary a hint of doubt, acting for all the world like the Ministry of Propaganda for the Bush administration.

The public, having been duly shocked into a malleable mental state, fell back on their favorite position-- i.e. 'they' must know what they're doing... despite all evidence to the contrary. The sheeple willingly surrendered their common sense (what's left of it) and their doubts to the pre-arranged talking heads, who, like good magicians' assistants, directed their attention to plausible-sounding, but basically ludicrous, explanations.

The clever people, academicians, engineers, aircraft pilots, security staff, demolition professionals, etc., must have sat amazed and dazed for the first while, trying to come to grips with the enormity of what they were witnessing-- i.e. nothing less than a conspiracy of the elected government to create chaos within their own realm. When they eventually recovered their composure, it was already too late, in the sense that the media had blanketed the masses with a cover story, and the Bushmen were calling anyone who questioned it, a traitor. Hardly a suitable atmosphere to entice anyone to step forward to question the Emporer's new clothes.

The 9-11 truth-seekers had little choice but to take the 'alternative' route-- setting up websites to proclaim their rightful questions and opposing theories. First ridiculed with the perfectly legitimate label of 'conspiracy theorists,' they persevered to become simply '911 truthers.' Today, more than a decade later, the criminals who orchestrated the shocking events are comfortably at liberty to do the speaking circuit, getting handsomely rewarded for reciting their odious lies.

The 'truth community' has made some progress in raising the issues in the minds of the public, no thanks to the mainstream media that continues to cover for the cabal, while spouting the new lies invented by the latest government operations. Without at least one major, national media outlet to publish their views, truthers like Richard Gage, are at a severe disadvantage in reaching the masses with their compelling evidence, despite speaking directly to audiences across the country.

But 9-11 was just the opening spectacle in the elitists' plans for the 21st century. After that came '3-11' (2004), when a commuter train was bombed in Madrid, apparently to underscore the Spanish government's support for the illegal invasion of Afghanistan. While various forces tried to pin the blame on Al-queda or on Eta (the Basque separatist group), circumstances directed suspicion on secret provocateurs, and the ploy back-fired, when Spain, instead, voted to withdraw its troops.

Then there was 7-7-05, the bombing of a London subway train and a bus, that caused 52 deaths and numerous injuries, and incidentally, led to even greater surveillance of the populace. The 'beeb' (BBC) did a marvelous job of detailing the 'facts' surrounding the events, and publishing obituaries; but failed to adequately investigate the curious 'coincidences' and inconsistencies that easily led the alert, alternative media to suspect, and later confirm, another government-created, false-flag attack designed to advance the plan of the globalist elite. As in the USA, the public in the UK fell victim to the same psychological theatrics used so effectively to deceive and manipulate. The real perpetrators could not have gotten away with this deadly deed without the full cooperation of the media, especially the BBC.

Yet the shock and awe tactics of the globalists is not limited to mere political terrorism. When the opportunity presented itself, a month later in 2005, they seemed to be amazingly prepared to take advantage of nature itself. Hurricane Katrina raged as a magnitude 5 storm in the Gulf of Mexico, and by the time it struck the coast of Louisiana, had been down-graded to category 3, still very powerful. Altho designed to handle a class 3 hurricane, the levees (dikes) on the inland-side waterway 'failed' after the worst of the storm had passed. For the alert observer, there were initial reports of a gun-battle between N.O. Police and a group dressed in combat gear, in the vicinity of one of the major levees that subsequently failed. That story quickly disappeared, never to re-surface. First-hand accounts, published on the 'Net, told horrific stories of national guardsmen forcing refugees to remain in dangerous conditions, denying water and food to homeless victims, and even turning back a convoy of citizen-organized rescue boats from neighboring states. To those with eyes, Katrina was clearly an exacerbated disaster at the least, and a manufactured tragedy, at worst.

Then there was the big, urban spectacular event, of the attack on Mumbai, in Nov. 2008. Again, to anyone who closely followed the reports in real time, things were darkly suspicious. If the attackers were Muslims, as alleged by India, why were some of them wearing a traditional Hindu wrist-band? Why did the attackers include the Mumbai synagogue in their raids? How did a boat-load of armed commandos slip into India's premier sea-port undetected? Why was only a single attacker captured alive? If one takes the time to read 'unofficial' accounts of the raid, it soon becomes obvious that the government narrative is full of holes, and seems intended to achieve political objectives, not the least being the ongoing demonization of Muslims to justify increasingly strict 'security' measures, and increasing military expenditure.

Back in the USA, there were more shenanigans. Remember the Fort Hood massacre in 2009? A 'lone Arab-American psychiatrist' suddenly goes on a shooting spree, killing a dozen people and wounding another 30. For those who delved into the early reports, and read the analyses of those with military background, this was another story held together by a web of lies. Another fabricated atrocity, involving mind-programmed puppets, was foisted on the gullible public.

The last glaring, government-rigged set-up was the ludicrous tale of the 'Christmas, underwear bomber of 2010. Once again, if you bothered to read any of the silly details, it reads like a TV sit-com. We're supposed to believe that a man from Nigeria boards an aircraft in Amsterdam, in December, bound for Detroit, with no passport, no boarding pass, no luggage, and wearing only his summer attire... and no security guard raises an eyebrow to prevent it. Maybe there is a Santa Claus, after all; it would make as much sense. Another passenger reported that Abdulmuttalab was 'escorted past security' and airline staff by an Indian-looking man in a suit. But, of course, you didn't read that info in a mainstream media story.

As for the unfortunate 'bomber,' he apparently made no reaction when his crotch burst into flame-- don't try this at home, folks. For any reader who still doesn't get it, the said Muslim bomber was another mind-controlled agent, and couldn't have found his way to the toilet without secret-service escorts. And because Americans can't be bothered to investigate a few readily-available details, they now have to have their privates frisked or X-rayed every time they want to take an air flight. And does it not strike you as 'interesting' that the said X-ray machines were already waiting to be deployed, and that a certain Michael Chertoff (yes, that guy who was head of FEMA) just happens to be an owner of the company that sells them to the government?

So, there you go; I won't belabor the point any longer. The point is that the first decade of this 21st century has seen a string of outrageous deceptions perpetrated (quite easily) on, mainly, the American and British public, by their own governments. (Who else could have orchestrated these charades?) Clearly, beyond any doubt, the mass media are complicit in every case, and it's useless to expect them to conduct any sort of journalistic investigations into the criminal conspiracies of the masters who pull their strings.

We've had one opportunity after another to discover the deceptions played out in front of our noses, to demand answers to obvious questions, and to proclaim that we won't take it any longer. But... it's more fun to watch American Idol (or is it Idle?).

Because the media create reality for the average American, and because the average person has been conditioned since birth to passively accept the illusions presented to them as reality, we now live in a virtual, Orwellian dystopia. Future-shocked citizens are desperately trying to maintain the generated reality; to question it would create unacceptable dissonance in their mind. It's going to get a lot uglier yet. Since the globalist-elitists have been shown they can get away with (literally) mass murder, they are emboldened to push their insane agenda to its crazy limits. We can expect anything to happen in the next several months, and maybe years.

What If They Held an Olympiad, and Nobody Came?

Nothing can stop the power of an idea whose time has come!
How's that for a radical idea? Surely it's rather remarkable that on any mention of Olympic Games, it's simply assumed that throngs of people will attend, from all over the world. Yet, why should that be? Consider that the hurdles involved in attending the games are getting more formidable at every occurrence.

To begin with, there's the increasing inconvenience of travelling by aircraft-- the scrutiny by security agents, which has reached humiliating proportions in the USA, being the prime example. With the games occurring in the height of the summer travel schedule, cost of air tickets is high, delays can be expected, crowding will be the norm, and so on.

On arriving at the locale-- this year's being London, England-- the games fan will pay a premium for accommodation, transportation, food, you name it. Adding to the insults, the avid spectator will again have to go thru strict security checks to enter any of the sports venues; and will be restricted in what they can carry with them to their seats (e.g. only so much water, snacks, etc.).

All this inconvenience to watch an event that may be completed in a matter of seconds (in the case of track) or minutes. All that, to support the self-adduced pomposity of a cadre of 'dignitaries' from the international Olympic committees of participating nations, who love nothing more (or less) than being ushered about in priority limousines, and staying at five-star hotels, at no cost to themselves, of course.

 And this time, there's an even more ominous factor to stress the harried sports fan-- the threat of staged terrorism. Already, at the Vancouver Winter Olympics, the alternative news sites were speculating on the possibility of a false-flag, terrorist attack of some kind. Fortunately, it didn't materialize. That may make the threat all the more likely at the 'Zionist Games' in London... especially if such an event does not occur at the G8/NATO conference in Chicago, this month (May).

Certain credible sources have theorized that the 2012 Olympic games would present a prize opportunity for a spectacular act of terrorism, to be blamed on the boogie-man of choice, which seems to be Iran, at this time. Some pundits have speculated that the act would employ either a mini-nuclear device, or else a 'dirty bomb', that would cause 'significant' loss of life. Others have made a case for an attack using a biological weapon of some kind-- i.e. a lab-created virus.

Given the concentration of global media, especially television, at every Olympics, the odds would definitely favor a 'big bang' over a bio-weapon. After all, what would be more trauma-inducing on the innocent masses than an explosion, captured on TV, that takes many innocent lives? And widespread trauma is what terrorism is all about.

As for the games themselves, they seem to have devolved into a question of which nations can afford the most efficacious and undetectable, performance-enhancing pharmaceuticals. If sport is effectively ritual aggression, then international sport represents 'peaceful warfare' among competing nations. In any case, the idealistic rhetoric surrounding the games as being for 'amateur athletes,' and fostering goodwill, and not about winning, rings pretty hollow in the glare of the big-money sponsorships, TV concession payouts, mega-salaried sports-lords, and so on, ad nauseum.

 Given all those negative factors, isn't the time ripe for shunning the Olympic games? There's so little to gain by attending/watching, and so many good reasons to give these games the cold shoulder. All you frustrated 'occupiers' of Wall St. and it's associates: get the word out to your groups-- boycott the 2012 Olympics! That would be a move that the globalist media could not simply ignore. Think of it; with all the world's journalists covering events 24/7, the sight of near-empty stadiums could not be hidden. The impact of an effective boycott would be widespread and effective beyond anything that is achievable thru any other 'local' strategy.

 All that effort and money spent on planning and implementing elaborate security measures would be futile. All the police preparations for dealing with protestors would be in vain. There might not even be any point to staging a terrorist attack if the Olympic lanes are deserted.

Make no mistake-- the Olympics are just another 'game' exploited by the globalist elite to give them another avenue for bestowing themselves with importance, for sucking more money from the bedazzled masses, and for providing entertaining diversions from the sick, and serious crimes they commit in the shadows. The unexpected boycott of their games by a substantial number of spectators would surely throw a monkey-wrench into their long-dreamt plans for this 'global event,' being held in a portentious year, in one of the epicentres of their occult empire.

So, dear readers of the alternative (i.e. truthful) news sites-- take note; this is the year to shun the over-hyped, hyper-politicized, Olympic Games. Don't subject yourself to the abuses of travel, and put yourself under the myriad restrictions of the games' security thugs, and endure all the expected rip-offs. Don't go to the games! Don't even watch them on TV! Just ignore the whole modern-Roman-circus called the Olympics... and wait for the proverbial crap to hit the fans. Sports fans of the world, unite; and spread the word!
