In the interest of clearing up confusion, I’ll list my criteria for editing my friends list. I see from the comments that people have completely missed that list that I posted, back in July.
1. Family members
2. Personal contacts from email address books.
3. Active contacts from other social and professional networks.
4. “Likes” on my group page.
5. People who have posted and commented enough on
my page for their names to ring a bell.
- Ok. You’ve all misunderstood. The first reason that I’m so insistent about my group page is that I have thousands of people in my friends list that never interact with me. After I added them, I never got a message from them, they never commented on anything, and I never saw them post anything.
- The second reason is that there were people selling cruises, TVs, cell phones, laptop computers, shoes, T -shirts and more crap than I can list, here. At the time, I was sleeping outdoors in all kinds of weather. I stuck a fork in them, quickly. A big reason for my group page is that solicitors can’t post anything, there. Only the content that I post and the pages I like appear there.
- The third reason is that my personal page gets bombarded by scammers. It seems that everyone in Pakistan is running an orphanage. I’ve made the mistake of recommending them to my friends, only to learn that they’re hustling my friends for funds. My group page puts an end to that. The feed on the page is slower and I don’t have to take all day chasing old posts to weed out commercial activity. I do not advertise, sell or solicit donations on my
pages. No one else will be permitted to do that, either. I try to protect my friends list from being scammed. I’m a writer. I work at that from the time I get up until my head hits the pillow, at night. I get 4,000 email notifications a week on the 70 + blogs that I follow. Those activities demand my time.
- The fourth reason is that I am almost never on my personal page. Chat and messages are disabled for anyone who has not “Like” – ed my page. As it is, I have to appear offline on all of my message services, if I’m going to get any work done. It’s impossible to get anything done while while I have to answer “how r u?” from dozens of people. I’ve found that the experience makes me irritable. After about the 10th time, my answer is “Busy!”
Thank you for understanding. My family, personal contacts and “Likes” total less than 1,000 people. When I complete this editing process, that total will be about twice that number. At that time, the privacy setting on my personal page will change from “Friends of Friends” to “Just Friends”. The only access to my friends list will be through my group page.
Since all of my time will be occupied by my group page, I would still like to maintain contact with the people in my friends list. The only way I can do that is if they “Like” my page. I’m sorry if there are people that have reached the limit and can’t do that. Another way would be to subscribe to my blog. Those people stay in my friends list. http://georgesblogforum.wordpress.com
Purpose Driven Defects
Dredging up the past and trying to make sense of it is usually a waste of time and destructive to the motivation and sense of purpose in life. As introspective as I get, I have to deal with it and resolve it. Until that is done and normalcy is restored, I can be frustrated, bitter and fatalistic. None of those things are functional. I don’t like that “dead in the water” feeling, as though I were just taking up space until the undertaker shows up. The only rational, common sense thing to do is apply the principles of “The Three Areas of Relationship” to sort it all out, drive a stake in the heart of the past, and keep it buried for good. I know that I’ll sleep better at night.
It is very important for anyone’s emotional well-being that they give up on trying to undo the past. No experience involves just one individual. I should take my own advice to heart. Let it go. Admit that it’s gone. It didn’t work and it’s broken. It’s been and gone, dead and went. Forget it.
What brought this update to the surface was a feeling that I couldn’t shake for more than a week. It was the feeling that there was nothing left for me to do in life. The only significant event in my life that I could see was my funeral. I felt that I had written everything there was for me to write. People around the world have told me that I changed their lives. Some of them go back to the same old things they did before they met me. Apparently, they didn’t pay any attention to what I wrote, past the moment. For me, that is a demoralizing and depressing outcome. I have better things to do.
This brings me to the downhill slide that is my personal introspective. I don’t stay caged up in frustration for very long. At some point, the body text of the answer will coalesce and write itself. It’s taken a week, but the moment that was just out of my sight is here. I’ll be as interested to read this as anyone else. I may learn something.
The first misstep in my thinking was that all the things that were supposed to be good in my life, never were. Everything got lost or destroyed, personal relationships flamed out and died. Having an ingrained aversion to the disappointment of the “crash and burn”, I haven’t allowed the opportunity or the vulnerability to even think about relationships. At best, I can only know the things that I don’t want. With that background, I’ll examine what happens, and why.
My background in this goes back to 1982. I al;most froze to death on a bitterly cold winter night in upstate NY. Ever since then, there has been a moment of panic, every time I wake up. A million thoughts race through my mind. In that instant, I feel threatened. The questions pile up, tripping over each other. Why am I still alive? Why didn’t I just die in my sleep? What am I supposed to do? I dread having to face another day. If I couldn’t resolve this conflict in the past, I wouldn’t have lived through the intervening time between that night and the present day. Fortunately, “The Three Areas of Relationship” dismantles this emotional garbage disposal and lays the parts out for inspection. Now, I can judge the situation from a detached and practical viewpoint.
I observe that my personal relationships were doomed to failure because they became ensnared in a commercial context. When the business of a relationship fails, the personal connection dies. For almost a decade now, I avoid starting a business with a woman like I would avoid Bubonic Plague. In the world of Commerce, every encounter and experience is combat. A legal trust can be “killed”, without anyone standing trial for murder. In the commercial context of the United States vision of society, the commercial construct of an individual is raped and pillaged as standard procedure. There is nothing personal about it. It’s only business.
. How do we keep the Personal and Commercial areas separate? The simple answer is “Render unto Caesar, the things that are Caesar’s”. It’s harder than it looks. It demands more resolve and commitment. The intensity level has to be higher than most people have the stomach for. Commerce is war. Battlefield diplomats end up captured or killed. We can start this process, but can we finish it? Ram Caesar’s fraud and corruption up Caesar’s nose, and pound it home with a sledgehammer. Just keep up the fight until there is nothing that Caesar can lay a proprietary claim on. That’s what it takes to win. I understand that, for me to be the living, flesh and blood human being that God created me to be, that parasitic commercial identity must “die”. The price of losing is loss of Integrity. Of course, most people don’t feel the loss of their Integrity. They weren’t using it, anyway. It is when commercial conditions turn against people that they lament the error of their ways. That’s when people are faced with the consequences of trading thei4r birthright for a bowl of lentil soup.
For all the confusion and turmoil in the world, it still comes down to the most basic issue: living and dying. The important point here is that we are all required to do those things together. In that context, politics and economics become insignificant. They are artificial and contrived. Every work of the hand of man is dust and will blow away as such. If all we see in each other are the things we can do and build, we have missed the purpose of life. We are all living beings, created in the image of G-d. That makes each and every one of us, somebody.
The Two Most Dangerous Phrases
The two most dangerous phrases in human experience are: “If you want……” and followed by, “Well, if you expect……….”. In them are found the roots of every conflict in history. In them are found the chasm between a promise and satisfaction, expectation and disappointment, hope and despair. The frailty of human nature is inescapable and unavoidable. We cannot hide from ourselves. As long as relationships are burdened by the cares of this world, there will be trouble. There is a better way.
The Three Areas of Relationship, Introduction
In this introduction, it is critically important to understand that I see concepts in three dimensions and illustrate in extreme analogies. It must be understood that getting sidetracked in details of analogy misses the point. The analogy is not the subject, but illustrates something about the subject. As you read the next three parts of this series, picture a circle divided into three equal parts. Then, while reading, build a cone on that circle. Keep it divided with the colors red, blue, and yellow. The three areas of relationship are simply, Personal, Business, and Social. Keep the visual concepts in mind as you read over the next few days.
I continue with the description of the three areas. Keep in mind the circle divided into thirds and color coded. In the Personal area, it must be kept in mind that serious issues escalate when the boundaries are violated. In the extreme analogy, we find horror stories of people selling their children for drinking money, while their mothers are homeless in the street. I know that’s extreme, but things like that happen when people get their personal priorities upside down.
Now, we come to the Business area. This is where failure to maintain separation has produced wars, riots, economic collapses, and famines. All for the sake of commerce, people have been sacrificed because someone took what they wanted and eliminated people to do it. Then, they call it good business. Corrupt relationships result from compromising the boundaries of the areas of relationship.
Now, we come to the Social area, by far the most confusing area. In this area, we are subjected to the confusion and commotion of the crowd. The temptation to enter into compromised personal and political alliances are a constant pressure. It is in this area that all of the negative emotions boil under the surface. Maintaining separation in relationships is mandatory if conflict, retaliation and escalation are to be avoided. Remember, the object of life is to get to the top of the cone and stay there. What no one realizes is that requires a recognition of every individual as a living being, created by God, each deserving of that respect and recognition.
The Three Areas of Relationship, Personal Boundaries
In the Personal area, failure to maintain separation produces the horror stories the tabloids thrive on. When economic and social pressure intrudes into the Personal area, marriages fail and children are sold at auction by the adoption industry. A good example is the way the legal connection of the people to the land was severed. Countries are defined as land with people on it. There are no more countries, only corporations. Everyone is presumed to be property of the corporate structure, and managed to the maximum benefit of the corporation. The consolidation of that form of intrusion into the personal status of living beings was all done by contract and is very well documented, all over the world. People have traded their land, wealth and individuality for worthless paper.
I left off in the last entry, having mentioned invalid contracts. Every contract is an agreement, but is it valid? What are the requirements of a valid contract? The requirements are longstanding and well established conditions. They are Equity, Informed Consent, and Free Will. Any defect invalidates the contract. If the exchange in the transaction is not of similar values, the contract is in fraud from the beginning. Warrantees are in this category. To omit or misrepresent relevant information is denial of Informed Consent. Politics is the area where this is most well known. Agreements made under threat of loss or punishment are denial of Free Will. This we see in real estate transactions. The important point is that failure to stay within the boundaries of validity is a fatal error in Personal relationships.
The Three Areas of Relationship, Business Ethics
Where to begin? There are as many definitions of business as there are people. The expression, in all of it’s forms, that business would be perfect if it weren’t for commerce, is true. Unfortunately, they are inseparable. The mechanism of business is commerce. Commerce is amoral, heartless and cruel. It is equity and intrinsic value exchanged for agreed compensation. At no point is honor and integrity considered. Commerce is ugly business. This is the reason that absolute separation of this area is vital. Any intrusions by personal or social issues produces corruption. The potential for destruction is too great in this area. Humanity is capable of self destruction without weapons. In the next segment, the intrusions of corrupting influences into this area will be discussed.
In any discussion of intrusive corrupting influences in the Business area of relationships, it nust be understood that commerce has always been used as a weapon. Commercial entities come into being and immediately employ private armies to subdue and subjugate peoples, nations and continents. It has always been so. The most telling statement on the subject is a famous quote from Thomas Jefferson: “If private banks are allowed to control the issuance of currency, they and the corporations that shall spring up around them, shall deprive the people of all liberty and property. The people shall find themselves homeless on the land their fathers settled.” I wonder if Jefferson, personally, and the rest of the Founding Fathers understood that private banks would spring up around the corporation formed by the States. Whichever came first, the chicken or the egg, is irrelevant. You still get more chickens and more eggs. At least 200 million people were exterminated in the last century through commerce. That could not have happened without the corporate commercial organization of the world.
By giving our consent and willing participation to the policies of the corporate structure of the world, we are paying for our own destruction. We are now so dehumanized that we can watch the powerless die and rationalize it as being done for the common good. We have sunk so low as to call it good. Our consciences are so burned and numbed that we no longer recognize the sovereinty of the individual. This is the place that intrusions into the Business area of relationships has brought us. We hold the cloak of corporate fascism and free it’s hands to enslave and kill. How long will we continue in this and who will we betray to maintain our position in the corporate structure?
What is the desired objective in the Business area of relationship? The lesson of history is that societies that adhere to a system of just weights and measures, prosper. At various times, societies have made attempts at such a balance, only to be thwarted. Balance, honesty and transparency in business stand in the way of acquisition and centralization of wealth. Parity is a hindrance to the consolidation of power. Why would anyone stand in the way of equity between and among people? The answer is simple. The plans for the world do not include everyone. I suggest that a look at the Georgia Guidestones on http://www.radioliberty.com would be very enlightening. The message on that monument calls for reducing the world population to 500 million people. That means that 5.5 billion people are marked for elimination. Be forewarned.
The Three Areas of Relationship, Social Graces
The Social area of relationship may be the most confusing because it involves the unknowns of interaction of multiple priorities. When snap decisions and hard answers are sought in what is supposed to be a relaxed environment, pandemonium rules. It always seems that people are required to be too polite to be honest in a social setting. It would seem that conflicts arising from improper alliances and deceitful purposes in the Social area would be basically harmless. Nothing could be further from the truth. The deepest depths of darkness in human nature finds escape from the restraint of conscience, here.
The Social area of relationship is the most fragile area. All things done in this area are accelerated and spread like wildfire. Remember that there are no countries, only corporations. People all over the world are herded and harvested as livestock. Centralized political and economic entities have always sent corporations to subdue and subjugate land, people and resources. It’s all the same to them. The issue is the transfer of wealth and control. It has always been so. The history of the dark side of human nature, and the evil forces that make war against humanity all over the world, prompted this quote:
“Government, being a magnifier of human nature, is in it’s best state, a sleeping murderer.”
Guard yourselves against centralized wealth, power and control.
The Three Areas of Relationship, Conclusion
In conclusion, the protective and nurturing aspects of separation must be contrasted with the pitfalls and calamity of compromise. Does anyone keep this in proper perspective? Not indefinitely, and certainly not myself. The world doesn’t let any good deed go unpunished for very long. Being on fair, equitable and honorable terms with all people is a very difficult state to maintain. The requirement is that a price higher than myself must be paid. That price could only be paid by a perfect, undefiled Redeemer, G-d Who became flesh and dwelt among us, maintaining His Integrity, laying down His life in my place, taking my just punishment upon Himself. He rose from the dead and walked out of the tomb, having eternal life in Himself, that He could reconcile all people to Himself. Ask Him about it. He tells it so much better than I do.
The most common intrusion and most destructive process in human experience is that of incursion by Business and Personal issues into the Social area. People understood this perfectly, during the Viet Nam Era. Apparently, people don’t understand that, today. People understood that commerce and it’s companion, taxation, were weapons used to destroy nations, people and cultures. At the root of this is the definition of “family”. Obviously, there are quite different meanings in play. In G-d’s worldview, it is very simple. The thoughts and intents of the heart are known, there is nothing hidden that shall not be revealed. Needs are known before we ask and met according to the perfect schedule, the Will of G-d. Justice is assured by the Righteous Judge. Simple. The corporate world view is quite different. The family is a unit of property, managed by the inventory control institutions. After filling out paperwork and wading through a minefield of bureaucrats, maybe someone’s needs might be met. Consult your case worker. Your abuse may vary.
Earlier, I said that the most destructive events occur by intrusion of the Personal and Business areas into the Social area. Such intrusion has produced nothing less than turning everything in America upside down and inside out. In 1867, as stated in the Preamble to the Congressional Record, Congress changed the stated purpose of the just concluded war from “preservation of the Union” to “conquest”. By edict, the States status as soveriegn nations in confederation was abolished. They were readmitted to the union with the de facto status of occupied territories. The official title for what is now known as the Zip Code is “Federal Occupation Zone”. The best quote on this event and it’s consequences came from John Jennings: “The problem is that we have fake people, living in a fake country, subject to fake laws, and using fake money.”. This is what happens when proper separation of areas of relationship is not maintained. People trade reality for illusion.
Intrusion of Personal and Social issues into the Business area are very difficult to define and identify, resulting in deception and great material loss. Otherwise, why would anyone have gotten involved with Enron? It is in the Social environment that “friends” don’t let friends drive drunk, but they do give each other bad financial advice. Such exchanges may stroke egos and reinforce comfort zones, but such activity is a recipe for certain disaster. When people who insist on believing a lie assemble in a Social environment to enjoy the false security of strength in numbers, the resulting collapse leads people searching for a false messiah to teach them how to benefit from corruption. Never in the history of the world has there been such an intense focus in staying on the right side of wrong.
When Personal and Business issues intrude into the Social area, the process is slightly different. This is the domain of demagogues and corporate predators. People are herded through the harvesting process, here. While mass marketing and media promotion create an environment for the next great social movement, people are distracted into a process of consumption from cradle to grave, concluding life saddled with personal and collective debt that is impossible to repay. It is in this scenario that deficit spending and groundless speculation are presented as good things. The priorities in this area become exactly backwards. The great social lies find root here. People express their belief in the social lies in many ways. We have all been ingrained with the concepts that we must select “the least of the evils” and that this is the way it is and we are stuck with it “until something better comes along”. The legal term for this is “Corruption of the blood”. Historical evidence clearly shows that this is the formula for the destruction of an economy and a society.
This should be easy to understand. When Business and Social issues intrude into the Personal area, it is very obvious. This is where the world comes at the individual. Can’t avoid it, run from it or hide from it. Can you be forced to accept a Radio Frequency Identification Chip in your body? What if during a crisis, the food shelves are empty? What happens in a disease outbreak? Why did the Centers for Disease Control seal the vaccination records of autistic children? Could it be poisoning from the mercury in the vaccines? Could you be injured by people you are required to obey, and later see it covered with a lie? These are all serious invasions of individual Personal space. The obvious statement is that now we know why human nature must be restrained. Betrayed trust can never be trust, again.
The functional purpose of this series is to expose ulterior motives, detect fraud, and point to the right choices. More importantly, to recognize the circumstances in which we are allowed no real choice. If we have the standards of measurement that decide these questions, life is a lot less trouble. If you run into a snag, read everything the Bible has to say about human nature. It will weed out the bad guys.
What are your values? Values are the on/off switches that decide our actions. Do we get up and do something? Do we sit still with a blank expression and do nothing? Do we spend the last money on food, or rent or fuel? All of these questions and many more are decided by values. Everyone has values. We hear about “Family Values” all the time. The natural order of these values are very clearly established in every culture. The issues of right and wrong, reward and punishment, and concepts of authority within a culture are taught and understood, one generation to the next. In the corporate structure, values are set on unnatural priorities. The most basic issues are on completely different ground. Living beings are fodder for exploitation, expendable in the interests of competing power bases within the corporate structure. The millions of people who have lost their lives to the end of material gain and agenda serving social interests are grim witnesses against the institutions of Man. As we sit here and watch the world move toward consolidation and absorption into a common corporate entity, what do our values say? Are we to surrender to forces that claim the power of life and death over living beings?
It’s a normal weekend evening and the usual crowd of regulars are in attendance. Eventually, the topic of conversation turns to the “dos” and “don’ts” of alcohol consumption. Let’s follow this conversation as it moves down the bar.
One man, breaching the subject, says to the next man, “Well, I have a glass of wine with dinner, once in a while. I come in here on the weekend to watch the ballgame and have a couple of beers, but I’ve never been drunk.”
The barstool neighbor replies, ” Well, I come in here a few times a week, maybe have a couple too many and have to worry about getting another DUI, but I’ve never gotten so drunk that I passed out.”
A third patron joins the conversation. Hearing their experiences, he confesses, “Well, I come in here most nights and pretty much drink until I close the place. I’ve sat over in a booth when I got a little too loaded. Passed out, right there. But I’m proud to say I can hold my liquor. I’ve never puked.”
The next guy, hearing this says, ” Well, I’ve had a taste for the whiskey for a long time. I can stay on my feet and keep going. But, I’m ashamed to admit, I’ve lost my cookies more than a few times. At least I’ve never woken up laying in it.”
Another man, hearing this, admits that he has a real problem. ” I have to say that my problems go way past yours. I get drunk, I stay drunk most of the time. I’ve passed out, blacked out, puked and woke up face down in it. I’m ashamed to say that I have rolled over in it. At least I can say that my wife hasn’t left me like she threatened to.”
The next man interjects, ” You’re lucky! I haven’t seen my wife and kids or driven a car in years. I don’t even know where they are. I’ve done it all, been lower than dirt. I drink, I get drunk, I fall down. I’ve passed out and puked. The only good thing I can say is that I never had a blackout and did crazy things that got me arrested.”
The next man obviously is in rough shape. He comes out of his drunken fog to be the unruly drunk. ” Alla you guys is wussies. What wouldja do if you was me? Anywhere I go, the cops stop to check me out. Most of the time, they just let me go. One night, a guy said something about derelicts running around loose. Before he could get in his car, I punched him in the mouth. How was I supposed to know he was an off-duty cop? Anyways, I came to in the Alcohol Recovery Center, not remembering any of it. They said I needed counseling. After I got out, I decided not to go to the counseling classes. I don’t have time for that. I’m usually too drunk, that hour of the day, to go to class, anyway.”
The next man, having some experience in this area, puts in his 2 cents. He says, “WHOA, chief! You should re-think that idea. I was just like you. I get in fights when I get drunk. I didn’t want to go to classes, either. Then I found out the hard way that a warrant was issued when I didn’t show up for class. I hope you can be on time for that class. I wish I still had the money I had before they got through with me in court. They don’t mess around.”
The point of this story is that all of these guys believe that they are normal and functional. The truth is that none of them are. The first man is just lying to himself. He obviously hasn’t learned about how drunk he actually gets. With time, one mistake will inevitably end with a bad breathalyzer test. The rest are years beyond his state. Some of them may be past the point of no return. When I’ve told this story in the past, everyone has, at some point before the end, become uncomfortable and had to leave to be somewhere else. They recognized themselves in the story.
History is not kind to the tyrants who sacrifice the future for gain in the present. Sowing the seeds of corruption reaps a bitter harvest. Knowing the end from the beginning will become very important. We are watching the world approach a bad end.
From Babylon To The United Nations: Road Map To Armageddon
The empires that mark the timeline of history leave a record of many common characteristics. The people and cultural parameters may change, but the basic foundation is found in expression of the dark side of human nature. Lurking under the surface, in every second of human history, is the compulsion to claim and enforce the power of life and death over other men. The fact that history is measured by war and genocide is not a statement of the progress of human relations. To the contrary. History is evidence in a murder trial.
Humanity does not fare well as a defendant. The names of historical record have entered their guilty plea. The tyrants of the present and future will find themselves waking from their delusion in an environment where they are not the highest authority. To knowingly violate natural law is to incur a life debt. Since humanity can not originate life, history is the record of repeated failures. Impersonating life with forms of institutional death is the ultimate delusion. As we shall see, every great empire is born in delusion.
Throughout the millenia, many have had a vision of how to run the world. Fortunately, only a relative few have established empires. When they have, they left hundreds of millions of dead bodies in their wake. Domination of the world doesn’t include everyone. Here is one such ambitious plan. The corporate structure doesn’t care who the players are, as long as humanity is enslaved. In their own words, see the contents at:
This is nothing new. Planned wars, mercenary civil wars, the spread of disease are all intended to undermine national governments and subjugate people. Unfortunately, there are those who see most of the people of the world marked for elimination. The intended demise of 5.5 billion people is found at:
Such evil inspires to rob, kill and destroy.
Continuing in the line of world domination is the population control agenda. People see war, poverty, famine and disease as tragic events. In most of the world, tragedy is no accident. People are displaced by civil war, disease and a complete disruption of life as they knew it. A thorough study of the document at
would be a good starting point.
Titled “The Population Control Agenda” by Dr. Stanley Montieth, this article and the references it contains outline the global agenda for the world’s population. This is where arrogant men decide who lives and who dies.
The strident calls for global regulation and a global currency are only the beginning. The history of the consolidation of wealth and power is a record of inhumanity. The objective of commerce is always conquest. If all people are under the same currency, how shall they escape conquest?
The only activities that seem to be working these days are those related to undermining existing social structures. Stock market analysts talk like gamblers trying to break even. Politicians talk about ways to get their hands on more money. Legislatures debate on squeezing the Golden Goose harder with more regulations. No one seems to care about inflation as the financial structure works day and night to inflate the next bubble. Just because the central banks don’t seem to be worried about inflation, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be.
The combination of inflation and tax the rich schemes moves jobs to other continents. So much for free trade. The record shows that industries were traded for debt. People borrow money to make other people rich. Next week, people will pull a lever and give their consent to fraud. They volunteered to pay their share of the debt. They have no complaint when they discover that their next job doesn’t exist.
If people realized that intrusion by the corporate structure was the cause of their problems and not the solution, conditions would improve, dramatically. The expert speculation is that we will see fascist takeovers of entire segments of national and global economies. Again, the world falls into the trap of giving up independence for the cost of printing the paper. We are seeing the repeated folly of the ’90s. Trading substance for perception is just a polite euphemism for believing a lie.
There is no real money to pay for the destruction of national boundaries and civil liberties, so everyone will play with paper to get it done. Global government has always been the goal of the corporate structure. More than 6 billion people are expected to check their humanity at the door and lower their heads. It is a dark life, being a robot in the corporate structure.
With all the confusion and commotion of the past week, people have lost sight of the issues that most closely affect their lives. Remember when the bar codes on products and the magnetic strips on the various cards were seen as a gross invasion of privacy? Now they are seen as commonplace and not a danger. The world has gone so far beyond those developments. The cultural conscience has been dulled.
We now see biometric information, retina scans, warrantless searches by surveillance technology. There is no privacy. If the corporate structure wants video of an individual in the shower, that is attainable. Where is the end of this intrusion? As long as people volunteer into slavery, there is no end to intrusion.
A crisis is a problem, rolled into a tube, and stuffed with a lie. Without a fabricated context built out of false content, no problem can become a crisis. A good example is that a bubble cannot be inflated with gold and silver. The only way to inflate the supply of gold and silver is to dig deeper and faster. Contrary to popular belief, it is not possible to manufacture real money. At best, parity in commodities produces prosperity. At worst, false equivalents create shortages. Printing paper currencies is an enabling mechanism for corruption.
The events of the past two months should have opened the world’s eyes. The seamless interaction between government and private agendas has produced a striking change in the world. Now, in the name of “help”, government and private banks are seizing title to property. People now rent everything and pay, according to terms of private contracts. Learning how the modern game is played is good. Learning how to stay out of the debt game is better.
Explanation is in order. Not all purchases and sales are equal. In a mortgage transaction, the real estate is collateral against the debt and title is in the name of the bank. The currency is the property of the banking system, whether in your possession or theirs. Since everything in the transaction is property of the banking system, everything remains property of the banking system. Upon payment of the loan, the buyer is allowed use of the property, under license, by contract. To understand how people enter into such inequitable contracts, we must be able to identify people indoctrinated into the process of the Beast. That is a difficult task, because we may find ourselves looking into a mirror when doing so.
Yes, we have met the enemy, and they is us. Thank you, Pogo.
Evidence of indoctrination into the process of the Beast is easily identified, if you develop the eye to see it. The trouble is, universal training makes sure that you can’t see it. Once the public school brainwashing is addressed and overcome, obvious slave trading practices become glaring warning signs. The first sign is when your slave status is questioned. If you are required to show proof of who owns you (U.S. citizen) or which plantation you are working on (employment history), then you are being measured as a slave.
That is the beginning of containment. Complying with these requirements sets in motion a series of traps that are easier to get into than out of. This is why most people can’t see that they are trapped. The cultural boundaries are set to prevent escape. This is why there is so much cultural pressure to comply with the demands of the corporate structure. People are now monetized and packaged, bought and sold. At the heart of the process is the transfer of human beings into the ownership of a legal fiction. That box is the prison that people walk around in.
The chain of custody of evidence of indoctrination into the process of the Beast can be very difficult to trace. Since most people aren’t Sherlock Holmes, the worldview imposed by education and culture blinds people to the truth. The most secure prison is the institution in which the inmates believe they are free. The thought of escape never enters their minds. One facet of today’s prison is the concept of the free market economy. Such a social construct has never existed in the world of fiat paper currency. Such economies are operated as a managed corporate benefit. As such, participation in said economies is restricted by license and contract. The obligations incurred by those encumbered by such contracts do not manifest until a time of crisis, whether real or imagined. At that time, unquestioning obedience to the corporate structure is the requirement. This is how millions of people are abandoned to the death camps and slave labor, while the rest of the world is frozen in inaction.
Again, I ask: Who will we betray to maintain our position in the corporate structure?
After a month of travel and observation, it is painfully obvious that people accept controlled environments as a viable means of survival. They worship at the feet of their masters and promote compliance with obviously destructive social and political conditions as a good thing. Accepting what is perceived as benign dictatorship by commerce is a fatal error. The coming days will see desperate people in desperate circumstances. People will accept the only choice made available to them, over and over. The result will be repeated episodes of corporate management. Populations will be marginalized and impoverished. Those who benefit from the betrayal of humanity will call it good. Those who have positioned themselves to benefit from the policies of commerce will one day find innocent blood on their hands. They refuse to see it now. They will admit it, in despair, when their efforts won’t wash away the evidence of their guilt.
An interesting transformation takes place when people are separated from land. People become a fabricated image, created and manipulated by commercial culture. As such, they become property. This is proof that the objective of commerce is always conquest. Since history is taught as a commentary on commercial activity and control, the only world that people know is the one created for them to see. People have no frame of reference to test the validity of what they are taught. Independent audit of content is the only method of evaluation that works. The first question that must be asked is,
Who controls the land and resources?”
Without that answer, people have no way of knowing how their choices are eliminated and their free will is limited. In this condition, people keep themselves in a system that does not recognize the inviolate status of life and the intrinsic obligations of life. It is a system of artificially monetized commercial utilization of human beings. To be indistinguishable from resources harvested from the land is the most wretched condition that any civilization can impose upon itself.
Is it lawful for one individual to assist another in the commission of a crime? If people knew the crimes that they gave consent to and allowed to be committed by the authority of their name, so many of the aspects of commerce would disappear. All manner of thefts, assaults and murder are inflicted on the people of the world, WITH THEIR OWN CONSENT!
The corporate structure demands active and willing participation in it’s declared opposition to the Creator. Where there is required to be reverence for life, commerce inflicts death. Where kindness and compassion are to be the standard by which men are judged, commerce inflicts cruelty in unquenched greed. Where honest weights and measures are the required standard in transactions to assure prosperity, trading substance for debt brings poverty and bankruptcy. It is the false institutions of the corporate structure that deprives people of all wealth, property and liberty. Come out of the debt system before it crushes everything that is good in life.
“When the laws undertake to add to these natural and just advantages artificial distinctions; to grant titles, gratuities, and exclusive privileges; to make the rich richer and the potent more powerful, the humble members of society, the farmers, mechanics, and laborers, who have niether the time nor the means to secure like favors to themselves, have a right to complain of the injustice of their Government.” - Andrew Jackson
Over the past three months, we have seen trillions of units of currency devoured in consolidation of financial institutions, commodity and stock speculation and without a clear accounting of where it all went. Little or no access to these funds was granted to those taxpayers who are pledged to repay the debt. Yet, the people labor under the threat of economic collapse. This is a repeated pattern in history. There is a day of reckoning in the near future.
“It is to the property of the citizen, not to the creditor of the State, that the original faith of society is pledged. The claim of the citizen is prior in time, paramount in title, and superior in equality.” – Sir Edmund Burke
Such a principle should be obvious. Apparently, this wisdom was either lost or ignored in the last century. No deception by monetization of debt can absolve those charged with care of the public trust of their duty. The first obligation is to the people who produce wealth from the land, by their labor. Mortgaging the future to feed the excesses of the present is dereliction of duty and an outright theft. Now, where did that $8.5 Trillion go, again? Are the common people that it was stolen from also expected to repay it?
May the outrage of the people reach Heaven.
“The power to issue money should be taken from the banks and restored to Congress and the people” – Thomas Jefferson
The creation and implementation of the Federal Reserve System continues to be the biggest bait-and-switch scam in the history of money. The original contract was that all paper currency must be redeemable in gold and silver coin. With the advent of the Federal Reserve, the currency represents an exchange of debt instruments. Since the currency is created from nothing, is suppported by nothing, it is worth nothing. The banks are owed nothing. When will the American people ask the fundamental question:
“Where is our gold and silver?”
Never underestimate the ability of people to ignore common sense to get around the voice of their conscience. Taking shortcuts and “easy” paper credit is the trap the world won’t escape, this time. The world has never escaped the consequences of believing the lie that is paper “money”. If people can’t see it coming, they must surely be able to hear it coming. The currency devaluations of the past week are not keeping things on an even keel. People seem to feel that, as long as their country doesn’t have to admit to being insolvent, everything is good. Nothing could be further from the truth. Every bank is insolvent. All are bankrupt. The coming year will bring the ugly truth to plain view.
Hyperinflation, currency collapses and civil disturbances will eclipse anything seen before in history. Government can’t save anyone, now. The fraud and theft has gone too far. When government, the financial structure and the media lie, cheat and steal, the people suffer for it. Last September was just the beginning. It’s headed into the Pit, now. Every time the currency supply doubles, the closer it gets to a crash.
Whether with head in the clouds or buried in the sand, people have to pay attention when the thunder rolls and the ground shakes. If you can’t recognize the signs, at least read history. The currency supply has increased 765% in recent months. That’s more than a decade of inflation in no time, at all. Politicians can’t raise taxes, so they get it out of people with higher prices. Freedom disappears at the same time as independence. A nation of producers becomes a nation of beggars. The borrower becomes servant of the lender.
“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell
Pressure comes from everywhere in the modern world. Whether from media, the culture of globalization or marketing, an endless barrage of demands not seen in any previous generation flood over everyone, everywhere. The information gathered on individuals is staggering. Private information is no longer private. When that information is used against someone, it is news to them. When medical records are used to deny employment or insurance coverage, it is a sudden shock to an individual. When purchase records on a store discount member card are used as evidence in a trial, it is a gross invasion of privacy by the corporate structure.
Where does it end? It ends with the tracking and restraint of everyone’s freedom. People have forgotten the value of the liberty that is inherent in privacy.
There is always a crisis in the world. Most of the time, independent verification is not possible. There is a proper response in the lessons of history. Things that haven’t happened yet aren’t necessarily an immediate crisis. Taking care of and paying attention to important things such as food, water and shelter keeps situations from becoming a crisis. Big things, like the warnings in the weather changes and the verifiable threats of future actions and conditions are not so easily compensated for. If the dire predictions for the immediate future are all true, there is no place to run to, anyway. If governments and banks collapse, we are all on our own. If the global climate goes into an ice age suddenly, we as individuals couldn’t stop it. To avoid that helpless situation, prayer would be a good idea. Now would be a good time.
As we approach 2012, the most prominant feature of human nature is the ease in which people suppress their personal convictions for the promise of prosperity. History teaches that people always end up in shame and poverty. Today, there is such outcry for peace and safety. How do people find the lack of integrity to go back and beg at the feet of leaders who betrayed and robbed them? If a neighbor did the same thing, they would confront the neighbor. Yet, countries are plunged into war and starvation. At no time in history has any nation achieved prosperity by internal plunder of it’s citizens. In every instance, leaders strip nations of wealth and the rich men of the Earth celebrate in victory. Recent events repeat the mistakes of history. Change for the sake of change always leaves the people who’s enthusiasm turned to dismay less free and prosperous than before. Where will it end?
The world will either break the yoke of debt or succumb to the slavery of the moneychangers.
