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.
