How to Destroy a Civilization – Part One

As the last vestiges of our much-vaunted 'Western civilization' come crumbling down around us (tho so many are oblivious), I am moved to ponder how it came to pass. These crashes of empires don't just happen out of the blue; they develop over decades or centuries, like cosmic cancer on the body politic. This crash, tho, will be the final 'gotterdammerung' for the whole planet, and has been in the planning since the beginning of human kind. Overblown rhetoric? I think events happening now and in the near future will bear it out.
From that starting view, I want to uncover the steps by which hidden powers maneuvered our species into the incredible position of willing self-destruction we see taking place. We see it today, but it's been carefully contrived over the ages.
The most important step, from the perspective of the plotters, was to neutralize God in human consciousness. After that, virtually anything becomes possible. And that is what we've seen, especially in the last couple hundred years.

I say 'neutralize God,' because religions have been around from the beginning, and seem destined to persist since they have shown how ineffective they really are, having been infiltrated by satanically-inspired agents. People continue to invoke God's name (as in the nauseous 'God bless America') but it's just futile lip-service.

In the final Age of humanity on Earth, every social institution has been corrupted, co-opted, and used for undermining our inherent (God-given) faculties of mind and morality. In that sense, we were doomed from the beginning, since our progenitors were innocent until schooled by 'higher entities.' Religion as originated was already perverted; the narrative of the Bible is the story of the true God preserving a remnant of true believers down thru the ages.

At this point, I have to disclose my belief in the research of Zecharia Sitchin, noted scholar who studied Sumerian records (in cuneiform script) as well as other ancient scripture, and concluded that humans were genetically engineered by combining 'alien' genes with those of proto-humans. Many disagree, naturally. But they are then forced to rely on a literal understanding of the biblical Genesis, or on the unbelievable claims of the Darwinists. Neither option appeals to me as reasonable. Sitchin's paradigm simply makes most sense... and is not incompatible with the compressed narrative of Genesis.

While the original genetic engineering aliens departed, the orphaned humans were adopted, spiritually, by the Creator of All, whom we call God. Since God destined this bedraggled species for ultimate glory, including mastery over angels, the leader of a disgruntled segment of the angels, whom we call Satan, swore revenge. His perverted plan is to destroy the beautiful planet God provided humanity, and to bring as many human souls to perdition as possible.

The Devil really has only one weapon at his disposal; but it's a powerful one, and he's an expert at deploying it. That weapon is deception! As Jesus identified him, Satan is a liar from the beginning, and the 'father of lies.' That's bad news, because as it so happens, humans are psychologically very susceptible to deception. Yes, we love 'good news,' and hate 'bad news' so much that we'll do almost anything to avoid and deny it, including embracing thinly-veiled lies.

So it is, that even a half-clever con-man with a good command of language can dupe a sizable portion of any populace. Snake-oil salesmen always made a good living-- if they were smart enough to leave town before the truth emerged.

Let's examine some of the milestones in the satanic plan to enslave and destroy humanity.
- language is essential for human communication, and enabled great accomplishments; unfortunately, it also provides an expedient means to manipulate people's thinking.
- religion starts off with the good intention to worship God; then it gets high-jacked by those who recognize it's brilliant capacity to enable mass mind-control.
- education is hailed as the main means of lifting people from ignorance and raising society to heights of peace and prosperity; opportunists recognize public (mass) education as a golden means to indoctrinate whole generations of people.
- money seems like a great idea-- a 'medium of exchange' of value, enabling vibrant economic systems to flourish; by the vagaries of human moral weakness, money has become the total measure of everything and everyone, truly the root of all evil.
- government of some sort starts as a wonderful alternative to chaos and everyone for himself; then quickly becomes the platform from which 'strong men' attain rulership and use it to their full advantage, and the disadvantage of all others.

In the absence of government, people may claim, criminal gangs assume a similar role but without any restraints. Yet, in practice, all human governments become elected/appointed criminal enterprises with a satisfying veneer of respectability. It's governments that mold social institutions towards their desired goals-- education and health-care being two prime examples. Once installed in office, politicians just can't seem to resist padding their coffers, hiring their friends, and gaining maximum benefits, ethical or not.

From the simple notion of money (as value) we developed the concept of economies, markets, international trade, and notably, the corporation. Corporations became the ideal stalking horse by which Western nations (governments) carried out the 'legal' pillage of 'lesser developed' nations around the world. (Note how frequently I resort to ellipses/quotes to denote ironic use of the terms).

What happens is that the big institutions, once populated by opportunists (I'm being polite), often become intertwined in terms of disposition of power. In the USA and likely most Western nations, big business-- the corporations-- own the government in the sense that the politicians are virtually all beholden to corporate 'donations' (graft) for their election. The USA has been a 'corporatocracy' for a century or so, with very few presidents daring to oppose their agenda.

In Europe, the trend has been to socialism, wherein the state owns the corporations, but the result is essentially the same-- government and big business are comfy bed partners.

In more traditional countries, the organized church may 'work closely' with the government, and in the extreme, we have Islamic Republics where the religious head is de-facto ruler of the government.
Studying history, the most corrosive effects of the Industrial Revolution are rarely perceived. Industrial methods of production involved 'economies of scale,' and that concept led to creation of 'companies,' and then the LLC-- limited liability company, i.e. corporations. These heartless, faceless entities have legal status equivalent to 'persons,' but without real responsibility. Sure, the officers of a company can be sued, but in practice it's very difficult to establish individual culpability. (Most companies carry special insurance to cover their executives in the unlikely event of a successful law suit.) We are witnessing in this 21st century the consequences of ever larger corporations, having 'limited liability', running rampant across the globe, polluting, pillaging host countries, and paying pathetic wages with minimum benefits... all while the 'CE-X's get paid ridiculous compensation for their predation.

The other result of the Industrial Revolution generally unnoticed is our education system. It always hit me, even as an elementary student, how schools were organized like factories. Teachers are the labor, the students are the products, and curriculum is the methodology. It all runs according to schedules, there are performance measures, quality controls, and it's all done on a mass ('economical') scale!

While the education of millions of previously ignorant people might be expected to result in the lifting of society to heights of general wealth and positive attainments, it hasn't really worked out that way. Instead of teaching our children how to exercise logic, discrimination, and imagination, mass education became the ideal platform for indoctrinating children starting at their most impressionable age. Higher education simply carries on the training (mind conditioning) begun in the lower grades; by then, no one notices the scam-- it has become completely normalized. This is just as true in universities as in high-schools.

For the secretive conspirators to exercise influence (first) and then control over the population, they first had to promote selected 'thinkers' having their required ideas. These people are usually academics who have some connection with the secret societies we are now aware of (i.e. Freemasons, Illuminati, Jesuits, Zionists, etc.). With patience, those thinkers and their ideas, no matter how aberrant initially, eventually gain widespread acceptance. This assent comes with relentless promotion by the mass media. It was newspapers and scientific forums in Darwin's day; today it's TV, movies, magazines, websites, 'social media,' and so on.

The Industrial Revolution was due almost entirely to the blossoming of science in the European 'Enlightenment.' Science, like every other human institution ever invented, soon was transmuted to a 'thought-box,' in this case, scientism, altho by its very nature, no practitioner or believer in science could ever admit it. Scientism has its 'temples,' its priesthood, its many dogmas, its rituals, its holy scriptures, and so forth; in other words, it's a religion in disguise!

You should be able to see the pieces coming together, by now. Darwin was the guru raised at the right time to propose a theory that captured the minds of most in the scientism cult. They were eager, or at least primed, to cast off the yolk of religion, which had long devolved into mostly spiritualistic rhetoric. Invoking 'evolution,' scientists declared humanity free of God, like it or not.

With God out of the way, morally speaking, the occult agencies were able to really ramp up their agenda of re-making society in their perverted image. Note how, during those heady decades (the mid to late 1800's) every aspect of human civilization became 'scientized.' Freud happened along and developed the field of psychology. Commerce was scrutinized under the study of economics. The 'medical arts' became allopathic health-care. So it went.
Science (I'll call it that) laid the foundation for what became the hallmark of the 20th century-- technology. By the end of the century, the Western world took it for granted that technology would forever bloom, and usher us into the wonderful world of tomorrow. Yet, it was technology as the hand-maid of industry that has led to the many environmental crises that we face today! Reckless use of often poorly-designed or built machines and devices has allowed companies to 'more efficiently' strip our land of forests and minerals, and in the process, to lay off more unneeded workers, and pollute the air and water resources.

The physical destruction of our planet proceeds apace, pushed by ever-greedy shareholders whose corporations promise jobs to the locals in return for tax and regulatory exemptions. Meanwhile, the moral destruction is equally pernicious. Under the siren-song of such desirable goals as 'minority rights,' 'tolerance and equality,' 'anti-hate laws,' and so on, the liberal social agenda has been heavily and mindlessly promoted by the mainstream media and its shameless/brainless academics. All of those wonderful slogans are verbal weapons designed (yes, consciously) to restrict the freedoms of the majority, and also of 'competing minorities,' and to exacerbate the fissures inevitably found in any society.

Under the guise of political correctness and respect for others, the puppet-strung liberals increase the restrictions on not just our speech, but on our very thinking. That's because before we utter our words, the subtly absorbed PC protocols make us police our own thoughts. Eventually, people's ability to think clearly is impaired because of this deliberate shrinking of our range of expression.

Political correctness is another of those 'values' inculcated during the formative school years, along with all the other dogmas of the deep state (our hidden rulers). Since it comes from our teachers-- who are regarded as trusted authority figures-- and is repeated year after year, we register all their 'information' as background knowledge, and as such, it is rarely, if ever, questioned. Everything we 'know' about history, science, social studies, was fed to our receptive minds by teachers working from state-supplied curricula. It's an ideal situation for programming, in the literal sense, the minds of generations at a time, with homogenous beliefs and values!

If you suspect by now that I'm inditing our education system, you're absolutely right. Not that teachers are subversive conspirators, let me clarify. Classroom instructors are mere pawns in the grand game, themselves programmed by the system they service. It's the crafters of the curriculum who are the culprits. The political heads of the education portfolios install as the architects of curriculum only individuals known to espouse the beliefs and values the hidden masters desire to promulgate and instill in future graduates. These opinion-shapers are often the authors of books that expound their 'progressive' ideas, so not hard to find.

To grasp where this convergence of vectors leads, we saw it starkly in the 2016 US election, and are seeing it in the aftermath. First, the conduct of the mainstream media in their utterly biased 'coverage' of the election events, candidates, and issues, demonstrated conclusively their role as primary, mass mind controllers. That fact partly explains their fury at Clinton's loss despite every dirty trick they know being deployed against Trump. The MSM virtually ignored one of the biggest factors in Clinton's defeat-- the periodic dump of damning e-mails by Wikileaks from Hillary's own private, insecure server.

Second, the use of language via 'trigger words' and memes, was one of the means used by the MSM in attempting to manipulate the population-- e.g. Russian interference, election hacking, and notably, 'fake news.' Again, the mesmerizing failed, largely because the 'alternative media' did a very effective job in countering and neutralizing the barrage of trash-talk from the MSM.

Third, the fact that a sizable segment of the population, largely in the younger age groups (Millennials, Gen-Y), actually believed the lies fed by the MSM and their Democrat demagogues, illustrates how effective the brain-washing of the education system has been. Those deluded kids, weeping wailing and gnashing their teeth over the Clinton defeat, have absolutely no clue how to think objectively, no ability to detect bullsh!t. They are sheep ready and willing for shearing. Nor do they recognize the irony of their protests: they want to 'restore democracy' by overturning the clear results delivered by US democracy!

Fourth, we saw ludicrous amounts of money being raised and squandered by the DNC, all for nought, as populism fueled by alternative media triumphed. Ironically (here we go again) the MSM provided free publicity for Trump by their incessant attacks, because everything they were accusing him of were things the 'average citizen' agreed with! So, even the power of money can be countered by the free flow of real information (a lesson that, I'm sure, was not lost on the hidden agencies).

And finally we learned conclusively that American democracy is an utter sham, an overblown spectacle intended by its very theatrics to bamboozle the citizens into treating it as a serious exercise in grass-roots politics. Moreover, it has always been fake, orchestrated by secret agencies skilled at manipulating the populace. Those forces have always owned both the 'major' parties (why aren't there other choices?) and their candidates. They knew from the start of these tedious quadrennial political orgies who would win, and the winner is given his marching orders before even taking office.

The US presidential election was like a beta-test or demonstration of how the 'great work of the ages' is supposed to function to capture a society. Thus, they (the hidden elitists) played all their hands, and got exposed for it. They had not figured on a wild-card like Trump upsetting their apple-cart; even tho, evidence suggests the Democrat plotters had floated his name as a useful candidate in the RNC for splitting their opposition. Nor had they foreseen the power of the social media and alternative news websites in reaching the minds of the masses... who were quite turned off by the blatant lies being spouted by the MSM.

It was a case study for the global audience in New World Order politics, and how rotten it is. The NWO proponents will not go away, however. As I write, in mid-December, 2016, they continue to throw every possible hurdle in front of a Trump inauguration in January. Likewise, their European toadies continue to defy the will of the citizens, and push for more immigration, erasure of borders, and enforcing the Euro currency regardless of the impending bank failures in Italy and elsewhere.

In every sphere of human life, the masters in control demonstrate an insane desire to keep their feet firmly on the accelerator of destruction regardless of all indicators that disaster awaits such policies. Given the size of the global population, the widespread application of unbridled technologies, and the interlocked financial and other institutions, the collapse of our civilization is virtually unavoidable. Add to those factors the increase in natural disasters that we've witnessed in the 21st century-- large earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, tornadoes, wild-fires, sinkholes, and temperature extremes-- and the scene is more than precariously set for a catastrophe of unparalleled proportions.

In the Bible, Jesus spoke of this time (Matt 24), and the book of Revelation outlines the geo-political maneuvering. The 'die is cast,' the scene is set; all that remains is for the final fuse to be lit. So, it looks as if Satan wins-- he achieves his two goals: to destroy the Earth as a habitable planet, and to deceive vast numbers of humans to abandoning faith in God. But, that's not the end of the story! Stay tuned for Part Two.

How To Destroy The World – Part Two

[Recapping from Part One] Given the size of the global population, the widespread application of unbridled technologies, and the interlocked financial and other institutions, the collapse of our civilization is virtually unavoidable. Add to those factors the increase in natural disasters that we've witnessed in the 21st century-- large earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, tornadoes, wild-fires, sinkholes, and temperature extremes-- and the scene is more than precariously set for a catastrophe of unparalleled proportions.

One could also mention the extinction of species happening at an alarming rate, as well as strange die-offs of masses of birds and fish noted world-wide. As always, many are dismissing whatever evidence is presented, using every kind of psychological dodge possible in order to not face the reality of imminent danger. While those deniers bluster and stonewall, stories persist (substantiated by sales data) that
 the wealthiest among us are busy building and stocking 'doomsday shelters,' clearly indicating their desire to prepare for some big disaster. 'What kind of disaster?' is a question that leads to interesting discussions.
If you still prefer to trust the MSM to inform of at least critical news, then there is nothing to worry about... besides crime, terrorism, drug abuse, and visits from your mother-in-law. On the other hand, if you are brave enough to do some digging into the subject, you will discover 'theories' about a so-called Planet X, a.k.a. Nibiru, and various other names. You can find numerous Youtube videos and other sources giving various descriptions of Nibiru, and others giving dates for when it will appear in the skies, and still others trying to de-bunk the whole idea. What to believe?

Here's what I believe, after many years of investigation. All those natural disasters that I cited above are indications that 'something' has changed in our cosmic neighborhood. The MSM generally ignore 'local phenomena' unless forced to report them, and then they avoid any hint of a connection with anything else. A few observers, me included, have connected the dots, and there is only one theory that explains all the observed phenomena from around the world; and that is Planet X.

Distilling reams of information, much of it inferred from diverse sources, ancient and modern, here is the essential scoop on Planet X. The theory first appeared in the public sphere in the 1970s thanks to the research of Zecharia Sitchin, a 'Russian-Israeli-American' scholar who learned ancient Sumerian language and interpreted a great many of the extant clay tablets of cuneiform script. He augmented the stories from Sumeria with parallel or derivative accounts recorded by the Babylonians, Assyrians, and others, and including the Bible.

Sitchin found in the texts, not fanciful myths of ostensible gods, but poetic accounts of the creation of our planet and the configuration of the solar system, and also the creation of the human race. He contended that the texts gave vivid descriptions of how Nibiru, as the Sumerians called it, is a large planet in a highly elongated (comet-like) orbit, in retrograde motion (i.e. clock-wise, as viewed from our North Pole), and with a period of approximately 3,600 years.

That orbital period is long enough for the human race to forget it's cyclical passages; however, historical and geological evidence lends support to the hypothesis. Successive close encounters with Nibiru would account for widespread disasters implied in various aboriginal traditions, as well as in physical phenomena often ascribed to a universal deluge, for example. In the ancient records (and the Sumerians were diligent record-keepers and able mathematicians) Nibiru is said to be about four times the diameter of Earth and having a strong magnetic field. It is depicted as a 'winged planet,' due apparently to a vast dust cloud and/or debris field that accompanies it. The ancients also described it as a red star, implying that the dust sheath is rich in iron.

Alright, but what do modern astronomers say about it. Here's where it gets 'woo-woo' (to borrow from Clif High; do a search). Most authorities say it's a myth or a conspiracy theory. The few that acknowledge the existence of Planet X (Nibiru) seem to meet untimely and suspicious death... strange how that works. I'm talking about the 'West.' In Russia, their TV stations have carried frank reports on Nibiru, some of which can be found on Youtube. Even China's media have carried news items on related sky phenomena such as a 'double sun' effect.

While NASA stonewalls on Planet X, they nonetheless have projects that suggest they're searching for, and monitoring, evidence of Nibiru. In 1983, US News and World Report published a story on NASA's 'IRAS' (Infra-red Astronomical Satellite) quoting the director of the Palomar Observatory, Gary Neugebauer, who stated that it had detected a new object, 50 billion miles distant, that was part of our solar system. Then in 1992, NASA issued a brief press release stating: "Unexplained deviations in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune point to a large outer solar system body of 4 to 8 Earth masses, on a highly tilted orbit, beyond 7 billion miles from the sun."

Later, NASA went on to launch several other satellites that could also monitor for the presence of Planet X-- e.g. SOHO the solar observatory; WISE the wide-area, infra-red, satellite. They are interested in the infra-red spectrum since Nibiru is suspected of being a 'brown-dwarf' star, and not normally in the humanly visible range.

If you're one of the neo-innocents you're wondering 'if NASA is tracking Planet X, why aren't they telling us about it?' Right. Why aren't the authorities telling us the truth about anything? We live in an Age, a society, of endemic deception, a virtual Matrix as depicted in the movies. I mentioned the wealthy who are building survival bunkers, remember? Now you know what they're for. The 'one-percenters' expect to sequester themselves comfortably, while the 99% mostly perish in the passage and aftermath of Nibiru. Any survivors will be expected to become slaves of the elite in return for a subsistence life. Back to feudalism, folks.

Regardless of its exact nature, Nibiru is definitely enigmatic, defying attempts to predict its trajectory and velocity. Nevertheless, observing our environmental and geophysical data over the past few decades, it appears that its presence in the inner solar system has been increasingly felt since the early 1980s, and particularly the last 15 years. With everyone now walking around with a camera (in their phones) numerous photos and videos have been posted on the Internet showing 'strange anomalies' in the sky, especially at sunrise and sunset; e.g. the 'two suns' effect, that can be best explained as sunlight reflecting off Nibiru or its extensive moons.

You can think of Nibiru as a cosmic cannon-ball careening towards Earth. No, it will not collide with our planet, but its close approach will cause horrendous havoc of an extent not seen since the Biblical Flood. It is postulated that Planet X will trigger a geological pole-shift, whereby the Earth's crust will slide over the underlying magma, such that the poles of the rotational axis will end up in far different locations than presently found. It's not hard to envision that this shift will entail huge tsunamis washing far inland, and enormous earthquakes creating new mountain ranges and flattening others. Back in the 1950s, scholar Emmanual Velikovsky described in vivid terms what must have occurred during previous pole-shifts (see his 'Earth in Upheaval').

All the preceding information is to break the news to the neophyte reader that Planet X is expected to rendezvous with our Earth 'sometime in the near future.' Expected by whom? Well, apparently by those wealthy folks building the survival bunkers; including the hidden eminences who have been engineering the chaos as described in Part One. You can easily find out that the USG has been transferring essential services to new offices in Denver, in anticipation of the inundation/destruction of DC. Many in the 'prepper community' also anticipate the soon arrival of Nibiru and the resulting devastation.

For Christians, it should be a 'slam-dunk.' Jesus' 'apocalypse' (Matt 24) sets the general scene for what we observe presently, pretty much, altho it's still only 'the beginning of sorrows.' The plagues described in Rev 16 can be seen as consistent with the calamities that would be expected in a close encounter with another planet. In short, it's TEOTWAWKI-- the end of the world as we know it!

So, as I wrote at the end of Part One, it looks as if Satan 'wins' because he does succeed in manipulating his human agents into destroying the ecology and in enslaving humanity to a demonic, anti-christian system. However, it's a victory similar to the one he thought he'd gained at Calvary-- yes, Jesus was executed, but... it was all in God's master plan, and Christ was raised from death as the first of many believers who would one day follow him!

This time, Satan barely has time to relish his dual destructions when the whole Earth is totally re-set in violent manner by God's pre-destined wallop from His cosmic bowling ball. As all these events unfold-- those in the human sphere, plus those in the heavens-- people around the world see that they are in accordance with the scriptures. They finally realize how they've been deceived, and that God is real. Even if Satan's agents force some to join their devilish ranks, many people will turn to Jesus. Satan's win turns to his final defeat.

This is the way the world ends-- not with a whimper but a bang! The scriptures will be fulfilled, regardless of the pathetic attempts of man and demon to subvert them with their wicked distractions.

Boost Your Level of Awareness!

Another dark truth revealed by the last US election is that none of the people around me 'get it;' i.e. have a clue about what's really going on.
They are, to a person, living fully immersed in the Matrix of elaborate lies fabricated mainly by the dominant media voices that define our world for us. For those of us who've been awake for some time, it's truly grating to listen to the lies pouring glibly forth from the TV on a '24/7' basis.

What the media put forth as 'news analysis' has been well described as an echo-chamber. They simply repeat the prevailing propaganda of the governing corporatocracy, ad nauseum. The 'analysts' interview talking heads chosen from the same institutions that are essential to creating the false reality in the first place. There is no longer anything resembling true, objective journalism. It is all about crafting artificial reality using all the means at their disposal.

But, how did some of us succeed in extracting our minds from the all-pervasive murk of deception? In other essays (look under 'Resources') I've given practical methods by which a diligent seeker can arrive at truth despite years of programming and coordinated media falsehood. In this one, I want to describe another approach that I believe is a vital aid in discerning the reality behind the lies.

You could call it perspective. What I mean is expanding your frame of reference to the greatest extent possible at your current moment of awareness. As an example, when you see people vehemently supporting the Democrats or the Republicans, you know they are stuck firmly in the artificial matrix of duality constructed by the hidden manipulators using their cradle-to-grave cultural programming. If you hear someone state that the two parties are both pawns of the corporate lobbyists, then you recognize that they have raised their awareness to a higher level.

In the example, you would also (assuming you're 'quite enlightened') recognize that the person has only moved up one level, and has to climb higher on the 'pyramid' to obtain a more accurate picture of what's actually going on.

In other essays, I've argued that the highest frames of reference are necessarily found in the realm of what we call spirituality. One who insists on staying firmly ensconced in the physical domain is thereby limited in perspective. As a number of prophets from a multitude of backgrounds have informed us over the centuries, the reality perceived by the five senses is not the full picture of the ultimate universe in which we exist.

Perhaps that fact is the reason why the capstone of the Illuminati pyramid is shown floating above the bulk of the structure below. The gap depicts the secret that the 'all-seeing eye' in the capstone exists in a higher dimension; hence it's supernatural ability of insight! For there is no doubt that, evil as they are, the human agents of darkness have been guided with seeming uncanny prescience in pushing forward their sick agenda, over generations.

As long as the good people who oppose the global project of enslavement refuse to acknowledge that the battle is spiritual as well as physical, they will always be at a disadvantage. Those who have fully delved into the investigation of the secret societies who (think they) run the world almost inevitably are forced to acknowledge the presence of an 'extra-dimensional force' or beings that supply black knowledge to their human agents.

In return, those dark spiritual forces require rites and sacrifices of the most abhorrent kind, involving ritualistic torture and death of innocent children. Virtually all the political leaders, major corporation executives, heads of big universities, religious leaders, entertainers, and cultural icons, are compromised with connections to these secret societies and their sick rituals. This is a fact that most 'average decent people' find too outlandish to believe. And for that ironic reason, they leave the way open for the evil cabal to continue its ruinous activities!

To truly understand what is going on in the world in this era, you have to reach for a higher platform, a more powerful paradigm, than the 'trust us' directive of the mainstream authorities. This fact has been known from antiquity, which is why the ancients gave us a number of such paradigms. The Indian Vedas speak of a cycle of four 'yugas' or ages, that each end in disaster followed by the next era. In that system, we are presently near the very end of the last age, called the Kali Yuga or Iron Age, characterized by a low level of human consciousness wherein greed, lust, fear, and muddled thinking are predominant.

For many, events on Earth can be understood by studying the configuration of the heavenly bodies, i.e. astrology. While materialists scoff at this endeavor based on a cursory glance at newspaper horoscopes, there is evidence to suggest that the planets do indeed exert unseen influence over the lives of individuals as well as institutions, countries, etc. Those who have the skill possess a higher frame of reference with which to comprehend terrestrial goings on.

Even limiting our purview to just the past, say, several hundred years, students of history have identified a cyclical pattern that recurs in an 80 year period, i.e. within roughly four 20 year generational spans. Two authors (Strauss and Howe) show that we are at the end of what they call the Fourth Turning, which is a period of political, economic, and social chaos that always culminates in disaster. You could have scoffed at this conjecture a few years ago; in the light of events of just 2016, you'd have to agree that there's something to this.

In another essay ('Wheels Within Wheels') I reveal how several of these overarching, metaphysical cycles are simultaneously converging on this period of time, multiplying their separate effects to bring about these end times. If you aren't aware of any of these phenomena, you are futilely trying to understand world events with a perspective somewhat better than that of an insect.

In trying to understand why some people stubbornly refuse to give any credence to the truths that the authorities label 'conspiracy theories,' (regardless of the fact that those theories make far more sense than the official fairy-tales), I looked for meta-level paradigms. One interesting area of study looks at inter-generational differences at the aggregate (statistical) level. While every individual has his/her own personality, it's amazing how generational cohorts share the same basic values and outlooks.

So, for instance, those born in the 1920-45 interval generally exhibit implicit deference to authority and institutions. To question either is unthinkable in their world-view. Their children, the 'Baby-boomers,' have far less reluctance to challenge authority and to operate outside the institutions. Researchers in this field have identified five generations living concurrently, each having its own predominant world-view... each of which is different to a degree from the rest. Is it any wonder life is so 'interesting' on this planet?

So, reiterating, to get a firmer grasp on the 'whys' behind the news-- assuming you're fairly confident in the 'whats' in the news-- you must do your research and determine which higher perspective framework resonates with your growing understanding of reality. After decades of this game, I know what works for me, and I've written several essays describing my approaches. I'm not going to be dogmatic about a precise paradigm for everyone; don't expect to be spoon-fed! Take responsibility, do some digging in places you usually avoid; use your common sense and 'ask the universe' to guide you. Start tugging on those boot-straps!
