Depopulation

“Depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World.”- Henry Kissinger

So Harry comments:
There is good reason to believe that the ruling elites favor a cull. I think they've given up on trying to solve things rationally and wish we would all just go away.
After reading his comment, I wanted to run around the room in circles, pulling on my hair, yelling, “Noooo, I don't want to go there. It's too weird and crazy. It's too complicated. It is too nefarious.”

I am aware of the depopulation agenda, and have been dancing around the subject here for sometime. So many of us are addicted to what someone other than themselves have defined as “reasonable”. The evidence shows that the power elite are not so limited, and this handy mind virus has kept us all in the dark and made us easily exploitable. In fact, keep digging, and it begins to appear that what has been defined as reasonable was created by these elite to cloak their dark, occult agenda.

Usually, I prefer to stick to the more philosophical, rather than the specific. Plenty of sites deliver specifics of the conspiratorial nature of our reality. Not so many detail how we played a part in allowing psychopathic control freaks conspire against life loving humans. I think it may be due to our lack of understanding of the fundamental nature of reality.

We embraced others useless and harmful synaptic structures; we were never aware that there are more options in life rather than the usual binary choices provided. That there are those who are orientated toward creativity and those orientated toward entropy, and it is up to each of us as individuals to consciously choose which end of the scale we want to work toward. Perhaps the default is entropy. It sure looks that way now, doesn't it? It is always easier to destroy rather than to create.

We all have some responsibility in allowing the predators to overwhelm the ecosystem, and they plan on consuming everything. Lies work because we want to believe them. Our reality is a brutal and ugly one full of torture, mutilation and rape. Those of us who have managed to avoid the worst of it, and overlook the aspects we haven't can not seem to stare reality in the face without flinching.

A few caveats: If you like so called “smoking gun” evidence, than that could be construed as a character flaw. You probably won't find it delving into the murky underworld of crimes against nature committed by the elite. You can only assign probabilities. Most of the time research can only turn up the outward manifestations of these crimes, and the true nature and extent has to be extrapolated.

The mass media has infiltrated our mind and subconscious far more than we like to admit. The term conspiracy theory and those that write about such things have images defined in our minds by the mass media. These images have helped cover up many a crime, or so I think.

Obsession is bad. You see it often enough in NWO websites, or in the likes of certain conspiracy researchers like Icke or Cooper. It is easy to become fixated on one aspect, or to react in horror and begin an outrageous course of action. Or worse yet, fall for a false lead injected into your environment, as in Icke's case. I think it is better to just focus on seeing. A fine tuned observer has an effect on the environment in non-linear ways I think.

Before studying conspiracy, it is helpful to understand how COINTELPRO or PsyOp works. There are so many smoke screens, blinds, double, and triple reverse psychological tricks that it takes a long time and a lot of research to understand the flavor of such activities and to easily spot them. And even then, it is probably not a good to idea to say case closed.

Often there are screens or crimes that are leaked to the public and everyone is lead down the merry garden path and much talk is generated that leads no where. It is all rather discouraging.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.- Dwight D. Eisenhower, Farewell Address to the Nation, January 17, 1961
It was already too late by the time someone got around to publicly declaring such potentiality. Such talk soon grew dim in a public awareness that is easily distracted by updated vaudeville acts and quick to work toward treasurers in the after life. Most had little knowledge to place such a statement in context anyway.

There may be one over arching conspiracy that could possibly be gleaned from myths. A code left by our ancestors to warn us. Maybe.

The bad guys think they are the good guys. The bad guys aren't always following the same agenda, but often assassinate each other and work at cross purposes. We are all the bad guys unless we choose otherwise, and are aware enough to not fall for what ever bill of goods “they” try to sell us. Ignorance and prejudice are not good excuses. Ego seems to get us in trouble. I have seen it often enough, as someone identifies with some piece of research and can't see further or open up to different possibilities.

Some playing this depopulation card think they are trying to save the earth. Many are big in the new age/occult shenanigans, and have played extensive roles in establishing new religions. Control and destruction are their means to achieve their ends. It is all they know. Some would consider themselves environmentalists.

There is one small problem with their agenda, and it may be their downfall. It is the ultimate in hubris to think that one can control any aspect of the universe, or so I think.

I will disagree slightly with Harry, or rather seek to clarify. It is not that they are tired of us or that this mysterious elite ever sought to solve anything rationally. This elite creates the problem and then offers the solution. Their so called “solutions” continually increases their control.

9/11 is an excellent example of their tactics. The attacks, which an increasing body of evidence shows required inside help, and was not a bunch of terrorists organized from a remote cave, are being used to create perpetual war. More problems, and more “solutions”. More terrorist attacks and less freedom.

After all these caveats, I guess it is time to edge toward the specific. This will require delving into high strangeness. Let's get something straight - The elite are FREAKS.

I will begin with the pseudo science of eugenics, which contrary to the average belief system, began in the US, not in Germany:

Eugenics and the Nazis -- the California connection

Edwin Black
San Francisco Chronicle
Sunday, November 9, 2003

[T]he concept of a white, blond-haired, blue-eyed master Nordic race didn't originate with Hitler. The idea was created in the United States, and cultivated in California, decades before Hitler came to power. California eugenicists played an important, although little-known, role in the American eugenics movement's campaign for ethnic cleansing.

Eugenics was the pseudoscience aimed at “improving” the human race. In its extreme, racist form, this meant wiping away all human beings deemed “unfit,” preserving only those who conformed to a Nordic stereotype. Elements of the philosophy were enshrined as national policy by forced sterilization and segregation laws, as well as marriage restrictions, enacted in 27 states. In 1909, California became the third state to adopt such laws. Ultimately, eugenics practitioners coercively sterilized some 60,000 Americans, barred the marriage of thousands, forcibly segregated thousands in “colonies,” and persecuted untold numbers in ways we are just learning. Before World War II, nearly half of coercive sterilizations were done in California, and even after the war, the state accounted for a third of all such surgeries.

California was considered an epicenter of the American eugenics movement. During the 20th century's first decades, California's eugenicists included potent but little-known race scientists, such as Army venereal disease specialist Dr. Paul Popenoe, citrus magnate Paul Gosney, Sacramento banker Charles Goethe, as well as members of the California state Board of Charities and Corrections and the University of California Board of Regents.

Eugenics would have been so much bizarre parlor talk had it not been for extensive financing by corporate philanthropies, specifically the Carnegie Institution, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Harriman railroad fortune. They were all in league with some of America's most respected scientists from such prestigious universities as Stanford, Yale, Harvard and Princeton. These academicians espoused race theory and race science, and then faked and twisted data to serve eugenics' racist aims. [...]
This will have to be another series. In the meantime, I recommend checking out the rest of the above article.

Drowning the Individual

“There are almost no characters in this story, and almost no dramatic confrontations, because most of the people in it are so sick, and so much the listless playthings of enormous forces. One of the main effects of war, after all, is that people are discouraged from being characters...” - “Slaughterhouse-Five” (KURT VONNEGUT)


“Most people confuse ”self-knowledge“ with knowledge of their conscious ego personalities. Anyone who has any ego-consciousness at all takes it for granted that he knows himself. But the ego knows only its own contents not the unconscious and its contents. People measure their self-knowledge by what the average person in their social environment knows of himself, but not by the real psychic facts which for the most part hidden from them. [...]

”In this broad belt of unconsciousness, which is immune to conscious criticism and control, we stand defenseless, open to all kinds of influences and psychic infections. As with all dangers, we can guard against psychic infection only when we know what is attacking us, and how, where and when the attack will come. [...]

“The bigger the crowd the more negligible the individual becomes. But if the individual, overwhelmed by the sense of his own puniness and impotence, should feel that his life has lost its meaning - which after all, is not identical with public welfare and higher standards of living - then he is already on the road to State slavery and, without knowing or wanting it, has become its proselyte. The man who looks only outside and quails before the big battalion has no resource with which to combat the evidence of his senses and his reason.

”But that is just what is happening today: we are all fascinated and overawed by statistical truths and large numbers and are daily apprised of the nullity and futility of the individual personality, since it is not represented and personified by and mass organization.

“Conversely, those who strut about on the world stage, and whose voices are heard far and wide seem to the uncritical public, to be borne along on some mass movement or on the tide of public opinion and for this reason are either applauded or execrated.

”Since mass suggestion plays the predominant role here, it remains a moot point whether their message is their own, for which they are personally responsible or whether they merely function as a megaphone for collective opinion.“ - ”The Undiscovered Self“ (C. G. Jung)

Robinowitz and "Snitch Jacketing"

All in a day's work.

It's a big, bad dangerous world out there. Confusing too. There are layers of lies, half-truths and misdirections out there. Try to investigate the power elite's crimes, and you are overwhelmed with a huge mess. Many just turn away, or soothe themselves by labeling crimes "conspiracy theory."

Dig here and there, post some of your findings and soon enough stuff like this happens:

Posted at http://www.oilempire.us/cointelpro.html:
http://catalyticconverter.blogspot.com/2005/04/email-from-cointelpro-and-shocking-911.html


amusing and pathetic slander against this website (some of the inaccuracies are so blatant that it suggests massive "snitch jacketing")
The above is Robinowitz's response, to the above linked post of mine where I do a bit of research on his Oil Empire site.


Snitch Jacketing is:
... where the FBI intentionally made the target look like a police officer, federal agent, or an informer. This served the dual purposes of isolating & alienating important leaders, often, as well as increasing the general level of fear & factionalism in the group. "When a member of a nonviolent group was successfully mislabeled as an informant, the result was alienation from the group. When the target belonged to a group known to have killed suspected informants, the risk was substantially more serious. On several occasions, the Bureau used this technique against members of the Black Panther Party (BPP); it was used at least twice after FBI documents expressed concern over the possible consequences because two members of the BPP had been murdered as suspected informants."
Let us see who is snitch jacketing:
My Secret Life as a CIA Operative


By Kurt Nimmo

Lately, things have been a bit crazy. After Counterpunch posted an article I wrote critical of Mike Ruppert, I was drawn into an at times acrimonious email exchange. In order to protect the innocent (and guilty) I will not mention any names, but suffice it to say a few wild allegations were tossed around.

One allegation floating around is that Counterpunch, according to a guy connected to the 9/11 movement, Mark Robinowitz, is a COINTELPRO and CIA front. I found this assertion rather off-the-wall, to say the least. So I decided to do a bit of research, using Google, just to see what turned up...
Kurt Nimmo does an excellent job writing about the war crimes of the US and Israel. A few disagreements about 9/11 does not an COINTELPRO operative make.

From Sue the Terrorists:
"Common sense tells me that anyone who has a web page that calls 20 different 911 pages "bogus", yet shows no research work himself, is not only disinfo, but sloppy, and not very good at it." - From an anonymous posting at Portland Indymedia

It is important to remember here, dear readers, that all of this - all the duplicity, all the vitriol, all the slander and libel, all the attempted character assassinations (not just in this newsletter, but in #53, #54, and #56 as well) - has come about because of just a single posting that I put up on my website some three weeks ago. And that posting was not, by any stretch of the imagination, a personal attack on anyone. It was simply a challenge to the notion that petroleum is a 'fossil fuel.'

I have already posed a series of questions for the 'Peak Oil' crowd, all of them pertaining to the deception employed to sell the concept: Why are we being deceived about the true origins of oil and gas? Why are we being deceived about who is really behind the notion of 'Peak Oil'? And why are we being deceived about the viability of various alternative energy sources?

To those questions I now need to add another, equally important, question: Why is such a concerted effort being made to silence and discredit anyone who challenges the 'Peak Oil' theory?Mark Robinowitz, webmaster of OILEMPIRE.US has seen fit to create an entire page dedicated to discrediting Stanley Hilton and his lawsuit.
The Sue the Terrorist site primarily focuses on Stanley Hilton filing a, "$7 billion federal class action lawsuit against top Bush Administration officials for, among other things, their engineering and orchestrating the 911 attacks."

One would think that Robinowitz would think that fantastic, and such activity should be supported, because as Kurt Nimmo points out in the article I quoted first:
It appears the criteria used by Feldman and Robinowitz runs as follows: if a progressive publication or web site does not publish or post articles that say the attacks of September 11, 2001, were committed by Bush, Cheney, the neocons, the CIA, the military-industrial-complex, etc., then they are in the pocket of multinational corporations, the wealthy ruling class foundations, the CIA, secretive Yale fraternities, et al.
It also appears that Robinowitz goes around warning people about other high profile writers who point out the Bush administration's involvement in 9/11. Cryptogon writes:
Mark Robinowitz sent me a warning about John Kaminski. Honestly, I've only ever read Kaminski's Hallelujah In Fallujah essay. I didn't know about Kaminski's other antics. (Search page for Kaminski.) I don't follow the 9/11 disinformation operations too closely (because there's so much nonsense), but Robinowitz keeps track of most of it.
He sent me a similar warning regarding my link to the Pentagon Strike Video. The video has had such a huge response that the Washington Post covered it.

Few people do a better job of pointing out the obvious Bush Regime's connections to 9/11, US citizens complicity in allowing this murderous regime to conduct perpetual war for peace and Israeli government's crimes against humanity than John Kaminski.

Robinowitz presents himself as a 9/11 researcher (even while saying, that the real issue is peak oil), yet he picks strange targets to attack.

The Daily Heretic posted a comment to my original entry on this topic:
Yes, as a matter of fact, he is on a list I get copied on about 911. He seems sincere and reasonable until he starts pushing you towards Peak Oil or starts attacking the No Plane theory. It is interesting that those two issues are so important to him and to Ruppert. The No Plane theory is the single most powerful attack on the official story of 911, why take it away? Peak Oil, as you and Dave McGowan have shown, is a roundabout way of justifying the Iraq War and of deflecting attention from 911. Both Ruppert and Robinowitz have explicitly suggested that people move away from 911 and focus on Peak Oil, ignoring the fact that the only people reporting Peak Oil are people whose wealth and livelihood are tied to high oil prices. There are really no one else who has data about this. Doesn't mean they're wrong, but it does mean we should be very sceptical of Peak Oil.

Both Ruppert and Robinowitz also are very concerned that they don't alienate "average people" with crazy theories. At least that is the stance they assume when trying to marginalize 911 theories that get close to disturbing truths. "Beware of hoaxes," they say, but some of those hoaxes are more likely to be true than their "respectable" theories.


Robinowitz spends a lot of time attacking Jim Fetzer, who has written a book on the assassination of Senator Wellstone and who is a professor of Philosophy at the University of Minnesota. He uses the smear tactic of attacking a person for content that you get from sites linked on his website. Here is where it seems like psy ops. He compliments Fetzer on his book about Wellstone, then attributes its realiability to the editor, who, he says, will be coming out with a book with an interview with an "eyewitness" who saw a passenger plane hit the Pentagon!

Finally, he mentions John Judge favorably, whose credibility was pretty much destroyed by David McGowan...
To summarize: We have someone presenting themselves as a 9/11 researcher who then proceeds to say we need to dumb down the discussion for "average" people. Who proclaims we need to control research into this crime with peer review. Who goes around and attacks those who are doing something about the crime of the century. Who attacks those who intelligently write about other Bush Regime crimes, such as the assassination of Paul Wellstone. I have also been privately warned about other tactics that I will not discuss just yet.

So who is "snitch jacketing"?

Unnatural

congress.freaks

Every living creature will naturally attempt to discover and eliminate the cause of a catastrophe in which it finds itself involved. It will not repeat actions that brought about the catastrophe in the first place. This is how difficulties are surmounted by experience. Our politicians are far removed from such natural reactions. It would not be farfetched to say that it is in the nature of a politician that he does not learn anything from experience... - The Mass Psychology of Fascism, Wilhelm Reich

All Peak Oil, All the Time part 4

I want to thank Harry over at Scratchings for posting the link to the peak oil article I will discuss below. The good people at Scratchings do a better job of pointing out the sheer ludicrous nature of the power hungry than I do. (The post Wheeeeeeeee! is but one example.)

If there is one thing a psychopathic control freak can't stand, it would be poking fun at their monkey antics. These control freaks take themselves very seriously. They can pretend to have a sense of humor, but to those who truly have a sense of humor it always comes off a bit forced. It's hard to hide the hate.

They take themselves so seriously, that they worry about things like racial purity. Of course, they consider themselves the pinnacle of creation. They can spend vast swaths of their lives making the case that they are at the top of the food chain, only to be ground to dust just like the rest of us. They just happen to leave behind poisonous literature, "science" and offspring to perpetuate the madness. They often leave a hefty body count in their wake.

To remain at the top of the food chain they devise all kinds of clever propaganda to justify murder and war. They have a real knack for getting all of us untouchables to do their dirty work. Peak oil may very well be the latest devious ploy:
(S)Peaking of oil… again

‘Peak oil’ – Newsspeak for ‘too many poor people’
by William Bowles
12 April 2005

[...] Note that the ‘peak oil’ issue is always set in the context of countries like China and India, for nowhere do I see these harbingers of doom advocating changing their OWN consumption patterns, it’s always someone else who has to change theirs eg, 1.6 billion Chinese, but never these comfortable pundits. So screw Michael Ruppert and the host of other alleged progressives who badly need to get a reality check!

Whenever the subject of ‘peak oil’ comes up it’s invariably in the context of rising Chinese and Indian demand for the stuff, in other words, they’re competing with ‘us’ for the stuff and by what right do these people who are “darker than blue” have to take ‘our’ oil. This is why the ‘over-population debate’ goes hand-in-hand with the peak oil rubbish, they are, in fact, two sides of the same (devalued) dollar bill.

Firstly, so that there’s no misunderstanding here, I am by no means advocating the unrestrained and wasteful use of oil or indeed any other energy source or primary product, but the fundamental issue here is not ‘running out of oil’ but the fact that it’s the advanced capitalist countries who have to alter their economies, whether we’re running out of oil or not. The Earth is after all bountiful but obviously not a bottomless pit of resources. As with food production, it’s not the amounts but the distribution that’s the crucial issue here.

In addition, it has to be said that the entire history of the development of technology shows that we continually achieve the same or better results with less; less materials, less energy, less labour and so forth. It should come as no surprise then that the ‘peak oil’ disinformation campaign comes along at just the ‘right time’ for the imperium, hovering as it is on the edge of economic meltdown. [...]
Let us not forget that it was the USA that was the first industrialized nation to enact racial purification laws. Certain doctors in Michigan and Massachusetts got real excited about castrating young boys and mental patients they deemed "unfit".

If my memory serves, the Nazis claimed during the Nuremberg trials that they got the idea for human testing from the US deliberately infecting prisoners with malaria.

But of course, it gets worse...much worse. Those who like to believe in what is "reasonable" should skip merrily away:
Background Intelligence on the American Red Cross

Dr. Len Horowitz

Founded in 1881 by American humanitarian Clara Barton, the American Red Cross (officially named The American National Red Cross) was first chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1900. A second charter, still in force, was granted in 1905. Not long after, however, John D. Rockefeller pirated the entire blood banking industry, along with the administrative leadership of the ARC. As you will soon learn, this quintessential coup de tats represented more than a glorious economic opportunity. The takeover of the ARC, and the entire blood industry, was apparently required to fulfill a far more sinister, even occult-linked, political objective—eugenics management for a racially purified planet.

To begin, during this time, John D. Rockefeller and his associates were making a concerted effort to control the entire field of medicine in America. During the 1890s, Rockefeller interests in medical education and “scientific medicine” were spearheaded by Frederick T. Gates, John D. Rockefeller’s investment manager. 1901 saw the founding of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. In 1902, Rockefeller’s General Education Board was founded with a mission to annihilate the causes of racial discords. This agenda was clarified two years later with the publication of John D. Rockefeller’s Occasional Letter No. 1 in which he detailed his plans to mold Americans to his concept of “perfect human nature.” This, he claimed, might best be accomplished by destroying parental influence, traditions and customs, while reducing national intelligence levels.

In 1904, the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (home to today’s Human Genome Project) was built on the estates of John Foster and Allen Dulles, lawyers for the Rockefeller Standard Oil Company. The Dulles Brothers, who openly professed John D. Rockefeller’s racial hygiene doctrines, later directed the U.S. military’s Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and after World War II, the CIA. Charles B. Davenport constructed the Cold Spring Harbor facility to provide a home for racial hygiene research, what was then called “eugenics research.” The first racial hygiene laws in the world evolved from investigations and reports issued from here. The John D. Rockefeller and Averell Harriman, America’s wealthiest oil and railroad magnates, invested more than $11 million—an extraordinary fortune at that time—in funding this facility. Soon thereafter, in 1909, the first genetics laboratory was established at the Rockefeller Institute and directed by Dr. Phoebus Aaron Theodor Levene. [...]
The above facts are easily checked. The rest of the article covers more murky territory, and is really only for the more conspiratorially minded who can sort through such stuff. Most people's eyes glaze over when the word Illuminati is tossed around. The article also contains links to such articles like "Tetrahedron" and "Prophecy & Preparedness", so be warned.

My philosophy is to believe nothing, and only assign probabilities which can easily be amended as more data is obtained. I have always liked the following quote from Kafka:
There is no need for you to leave the house. Stay at your table and listen. Don't even listen, just wait. Don't even wait, be completely silent and alone. The world will offer itself to you to be unmasked; it can't be otherwise; in raptures it will writhe before you.
But who is listening?

Israel is not immune from having their share of power mad psychopathic eugenicists:
100,000 Radiations - A Review

By Barry Chamish
chamish@netvision.net.il
8-18-4

On August 14, at 9 PM, Israeli television station, Channel Ten, broke all convention and exposed the ugliest secret of Israel's Labor Zionist founders; the deliberate mass radiation poisoning of nearly all Sephardi youths.

The expose began with the presentation of a documentary film called, 100,000 Radiations, and concluded with a panel discussion moderated by TV host Dan Margalit, surprising because he is infamous for toeing the establishment line. [...]
If you have made it this far, I should reiterate that my dislike of all the peak oil talk is not the fact that we will never have to face the consequences of no oil. It appears that we will. But behind it I perceive a racist agenda of totalitarian control. I also perceive it being used as a distraction from the crimes against humanity that have been conducted, that are being conducted, and will be conducted.

The first real instance of my seeing this travesty was when I began to notice that Ruppert and ilk were literally hijacking events where the crime of 9/11 was supposed to be discussed, and instead twisted into peak oil events.

There is good commentary coming from those who think that oil will peak, such as After the Oil is Gone. The article is an interview with Author James Howard Kunstler, and he paints a vivid picture of what we might experience in the future.

It appears that we have all been royal dupes. Racism is a fundamental basis of the US, and may be so much a part of our culture that we may not be able to recognize it. (Native American Massacres)

We believed that only Germans could be monsters, or Catholic popes during the Crusades, or African dictators (which more often than not were placed there as CIA dupes). We trusted our leaders. We were desperate to believe in the innate goodness of America, which left us vulnerable for exploitation even as we benefited from the exploitation of the rest of the world.

We are proving to be the biggest dumb asses the world has ever seen, as so many of us continue to hold out hope for someone with basic humanity to step forward and lead us out of captivity. What is it going to take before our perception of reality begins to resemble actual reality?

The concept of America has become a religion. Dissenters will be promptly cast into hell. Religion has been used to conduct war after war. Religion is obsessed with being saved and special, and to prove one is special one has to manufacture the satanic other, and then proceed to destroy that other.

I don't place any hope on saving or changing the world. Only people becoming individuals offers any hope to our beleaguered world.

Mass movements are too easily corrupted, their energy harnessed to further the Death Cult's own ends. We are lazy and forget to think for ourselves. We seem to have a tendency to desire to be a part of something larger than ourselves. We don't like responsibility.

The Death Cult

invisible dead

[image via One Man Safari]

Did a bit of traveling, so I haven't posted for a while. Visited the lovely city of Toronto. I met Inspector Lohmann for dinner one evening, and we had a great chat. It is a strange feeling sitting on the precipice of complete entropy, but it is encouraging to visit with those who can see what is going on our strange reality.

Whenever I take a break from writing, I always feel a keen resistance to getting back to the practice. I really should never take a break, but I always look for any excuse to do so. I can usually trick myself into getting back into the game by starting with a quote:

"Every living thing is a sort of imperialist, seeking to transform as much as possible of its environment into itself and its seed." - Bertrand Russell

I suppose the above is true. We are so close to that whirling vortex of death that we adopt its values without questioning their origin.

Some of us think we are so damn special that we seek to subsume as much of our environment as possible, and return as little as possible. We want something for nothing. We want to be saved for just being who we are.

Producing fruit for the modern crop of Christians means shoving the Bush cult of death down the world's throat. It will come back and drag them down with it too, but we will likely be too miserable to cough up a feeble, "I told you so."

Besides we all had our part to play in the current crop of troubles. US citizens couldn't be bothered to shut our country down for the rape and pillaging of South America. We just bought bigger cars. Most of us aren't interested in truth, and are so self satisfied that we can't imagine a disparity between our subjectivity and objective truth can possibly exist.

The middle class squandered what little extra time left over from their jobs and raising kids. They passed on their imperialist values to their children. They taught the kids to love television, and then sacrificed those children to the death cult of the elite.

We divided ourselves up like we were told: Left or Right, Democrat or Republican, etc. We trapped ourselves in the binary world, and we trusted on their authority that it was the only reality. We educated ourselves under the system we were told. We couldn't be bothered to ease the burden of the imprisoned or the impoverished.

The same tune played through out history. This time their may be a key change, but it pretty much sounds the same. Science has harnessed itself to the death cult, like it usually does: the quick jaunt from the catapult to the anti-matter bomb is not really an advance but devolution. It as if many of us are compelled toward nothingness; we give into that siren song of peace through death. So many of our great minds seek to speed the process with greater and more glorious means of killing.

Those who are of a life affirming orientation have remained in a blissful state of ignorance of this death cult. We have lacked the imagination or the willingness to see its manifestations, despite the overwhelming evidence littered throughout history. The body count is astonishing, yet we are willingly distracted by strange beliefs such as "progress".

Frank Manuel credits Jacques Turgot (1727-1781) as having, "framed a new conception of world history from remotest antiquity to the present and constituted the first important version in modern times of the ideology of progress."

Apparently, this Turgot character delivers a lecture in 1750 that is the catalyst of change in human perception of history. Humanity begins to change from perceiving history as cyclical, and begins to view history as a straight line. And with every passing moment it is progress and enlightenment, well occasionally there is the wrong turn and the the step backward but...
We see societies establishing themselves, nations forming themselves, which in turn dominate over other nations or become subject to them. Empires rise and fall; laws, forms of government, one succeeding another; the arts, the sciences, are discovered and are cultivated; sometimes retarded and sometimes accelerated in their progress, they pass from one region to another. Self-interest, ambition, vainglory, perpetually change the scene of the world, inundate the earth with blood. Yet in the midst of their ravages manners are gradually softened, the human mind takes enlightenment, separate nations draw nearer to each other, commerce and policy connect at last all parts of the globe, and the total mass of the human race, by the alternations of calm and agitation, of good conditions and of bad, marches always, although slowly, towards still higher perfection...
I don't know about you, but I have not noticed much "perfection". Turgot's narrow, racist vision inspired other loudmouths such as Locke and Adam Smith, and the rest is history.

Many of us still believe in progress, despite the obvious fact that we are experiencing a replay of WW II and the Crusades. Sure, the players have changed slightly, but the goals appear to be the same: Power through destruction, death except for a small elite, and plenty of us peons willing to play along. Techno-toys do not equal progress. We can teach a chimp how to use an ipod or a robot arm.

I am pretty sure chaos results when the distance between reality and our perception of reality are so great that the resulting clash of the two explodes in our face. When so many of us have no idea of objective reality the resulting chaos may expand exponentially. It is impossible to achieve complete objectivity, we are not god, but so few are even open to learning. The unknown is too frightening, and we prefer to cower in the corner hoping to be spared or taken care of like a good sheep.

We dream of a good shepherd, while forgetting the shepherd's motivation for protecting and feeding the sheep is to shear and eat them.

Plenty of people who may begin with a life affirming orientation can be easily swayed toward the dark side. Fascist subconscious motivations and beliefs can creep in so beguilingly and slowly that we are not even aware of it. We have all met people who truly believe that if everyone thought like themselves the world would be a pretty good place. This is merely a desire for control and conformity - the opposite of creativity and life - and perhaps an understandable, if misguided, wish for the suffering to end.

For too long, those who love life have refused to examine the death cult that has held humanity under its hypnotic, predator's spell. We have ignored the evidence; we refused to see that some beings may wear a cloak of humanity but are truly monsters. We try to warn each other with zombie movies, but after the impact has worn off we shuffle along much like a zombie ourselves.

These monsters are working under the bright light of day now. We no longer can afford the luxury of not paying attention to reality left and right.
