Reaping The Rewards: How Private Sector (Corporate Capitalism) Is Cashing In On Pentagon’s ‘Insatiable Demand’ For Drone War Intelligence (And Resultant State-Sponsored Murder)

Standing armies and the U.S. military are probably the only area where I see a large part of the  American population are regularly and completely duped by incredibly intensive corporate and military-industrial complex brainwashing and propaganda.  They are duped in large  part because they are generally good and decent people with a substantial sense of morality and duty.   That trust and morality is taken advantage of and manipulated by the state.  Which is why many around the world say they love the American people but despise the American government.   Not because they are stupid as so many narcissistic, self-absorbed elitists characterize them.    Hey, we are all ignorant in some regard.   But, that is changing in many ways.   There has been no great epiphany, at least not yet, but we are tiring of endless wars.  And some interesting dynamics are taking place that is waking up many people to the fact that we are fighting for corporate profits, empire, ideology or other dubious reasons rather than endless wars, violence, bullying and aggression for Jesus.   

Remember, I noted many years ago that we could see a day when Americans refuse to fight these wars.  Or, that we could see something similar to what happened during World War I.    ie, Mass desertions where the French military actually resorted to murdering (or butchering, if you prefer) many of its own soldiers to get tens or even a hundred thousand mutinies back onto the battle feed to fight for the French capitalist aristocracy.    While that may have appeared laughable when I first wrote that, we now are starting to see some simple examples of what may be to come with law enforcement agencies and the military having trouble recruiting new “drones”, er I mean police officers and soldiers, in this nation.   And it is a recognized critical issue by the establishment.    That’s not a coincidence.   People are waking up to doing the bidding of their masters.   

Obviously, on topic with this post, the invention of artificial drones may ameliorate that dynamic for some time.   Ever wonder why the military is so hell-bent on developing artificial intelligence and robotic soldiers?   If we don’t have to actually watch our children die fighting the endless, artificially-created boogeymen and enemies of the state, the state itself can create such an insular, propagandized world of endless violence that we’ll be living in Orwell’s Oceania.  Remember, in 1984 (the book), there were three huge super states, you know, like the European Union, NAFTA and the proposed Trans Pacific Partnership.  (Haha.   How rich is that?   Orwell and many other dystopian state prophets were no dummies.)  And Oceania, the perspective from which 1984 was told, was in a state of permanent war.  You know, like the U.S. empire.    Yet life went on its merry way without any of Oceania’s citizens ever having to give any thought about war beyond the bullhorn of propagandized state-controlled updates.  It was some far off, isolated event that was talked about as abstractly as the weather.   Just like in the U.S. today.   Murder as an abstraction of propaganda has no meaning.   That’s another dynamic that dystopian prophets foretold of.   That is, words would have no meaning.   Or the corporate state’s  propagandized play on words like War is peace, freedom is slavery and ignorance is strength.  These types of play on words are key to Hollywood, corporate capitalist and standing army advertising or propaganda and brainwashing and are already part of our mainstream psyche.

Already many of our wars are already covert and can be operated off of a joystick so its operatives can murder by noon, be home by six to watch the evening news and catch a game of Monday Night Football.    Watching operators run joysticks is even part of modern armed forces TV advertisement.    How dystopian is that?   This is clearly an example of how the state can manipulate humanity into doing its dirty work.    But, hey, corporations are profiting from war (drone intelligence) is something new.  Uh, right.   Corporate capitalism was divine and pure in the good ole days.   Just ask Smedley Butler. (I HIGHLY recommend this book or the audio book in this link.  You will be amazed at how corporate capitalism and its endless propaganda is trying to repeat history.)   It’s only since Obama that it has become tainted.   Or Bush.   Obviously, that depends on one’s belief system.  ie, Are one’s masters Republicans or Democrats? 

Remember, the state exists for one reason and one reason only.   To perpetuate violence on behalf of state actors.    That is why I paradoxically am very close to a pacifist but also support gun rights for American citizens.    Because the threat to humanity is not foreign, it is the class & hierarchy of the state.    Violence is how the state maintains their control over humanity.   This is how they maintain class & hierarchy, which is an affront to the founding principles of this nation and an affront to nearly every form of religion, philosophy and spiritualism the world has ever known.  Well, unless that religion is the almighty power of the state.  Americans are buying guns in record numbers year after year because they are awake.   This is the same reason religion is banned in communism.   And why communism’s state religion is atheism and capitalism’s state religion is Darwinism or what I would label as capitalist Christianity or brainwashed and propagandized Christianity that bears no resemblance to the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.   Because to acknowledge any greater power than the state puts limits on its violence and ability to authoritatively dominate and control humanity as a higher power or omniscient authority.   So, in China, it’s religious intolerance.   In the U.S. it’s contorted and brainwashed state religions that enables the state to perpetuate its massive violence.   Oh, funny how that works.   China is in the process of stripping crosses from thousands of Christian churches.   Just at the same time the communist party is threatened with economic collapse, social disorder and the possible overthrow of communism.  Right on time.  This is clearly because the state’s grip is now threatened and they are tightening their authority.   I noted many years ago that when China’s crisis started to reveal itself, the communist party would start a major crackdown.    Those who ever thought China was going to become democratic because they embraced the state control system of corporate capitalism were surely deluding themselves.   A position I mocked many times over the years.   China is a belligerent, violent state and it will do anything to protect itself.   That means killing its own citizens as well.    It has a long and illustrious history of killing tens of millions of its own citizens that it pretends, propagandizes and proselytizes about protecting.    That doesn’t include  hundreds of millions of state-forced abortions.    If China had the power of the United States, the world would be incredibly more violent than it is even under U.S. Empire tyranny.  Don’t kid yourself.   Evil is in class & hierarchy not any particular state.

Is The United States The Greatest Terrorist Regime In The World Today?

Title link here of a recent report on the number of deaths the war on terror is responsible for.   We can be assured most of those deaths are people who never did anything to you or me or anyone in this nation.  But that the state viewed as expendable or simply collateral damage that was rationalized as acceptable.

“Then I wanted to know the meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others and most terrifying, with its iron teeth and bronze claws (an empire of metal or military empire) - the beast that crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left…. The fourth beast is a fourth empire (or kingdom depending on which Biblical interpretation one uses) that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other empires (kingdoms) and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it.”

I’m going to take a wandering, maybe to some, unusual twist with this post.   But in the end, you will see where I am going.   The above quote is taken from the book of Daniel.   It is very clear that the “beast” written of in Biblical prophecy is an empire or the state.  It is clearly written in its text for everyone to see.    The beast is no mythical monster or left open to our imagination.   It is an empire.    And that makes the mark of the beast in my estimation to most likely to be money.   I’ve talked about why this possibly is in some detail in a lengthy prior post when I talked about the cluster of the blood moons we are experiencing.  

Money (Mammon) never existed before the state.  Neither did corporations, which are the basis for U.S. corporate capitalist empire.   Money is an institution of the ego aka of control.    Being forced into chasing money makes it impossible to lead a virtuous life and the mark of the beast written of in Revelations was almost certainly Roman money or money in general.    If you don’t see the profound tradeoffs you need to make when chasing money, then dare I say you certainly may need to consider what the meaning of life truly is.  Or, spend some time contemplating how your life would be different without chasing after money and its associated outcomes.   The meaning of life certainly is not work.   Or, more applicable in today’s world, dumbed-down corporate work.   Or buying that new Mercedes or attaching oneself to endless mounds of worldly possessions or the perceived prestige one may be chasing.  All manifestations of class-based corporate capitalism.   All manifestations capitalism and class needs to survive.    We can disagree what the meaning of life truly is.   Maybe it’s nothing.   But, I suspect the meaning of life is to experience love.   And to give love selflessly.   Which is so far from the delusions of the corporate state that any semblance of reality is completely vanquished.  

First and foremost, money makes people stupid.   Or, should I say, willfully ignorant.    And money forces even the best of intentions into doing things that are dubious at best.   You know, like working for Monsanto, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, the industrial food monopoly, the medical industrial complex, the military-industrial complex, standing armies and on and on.    Or, choosing between enriching your masters and spending loving time raising your children or building meaningful connections with life, the earth, the Divine and humanity.   Do I need to keep going?   The list of forced coercion, self-deceit and ignorance involved in chasing money is endless.  Even if it is simply chasing enough money to stay alive in a system that forces humanity to chase money to stay alive.

The question is, was that empire of Biblical prophecy the Roman Empire?   Or is the prophecy just the ramblings of a lunatic?   Or something else?   We do know it was an empire of metal (weapons of war) that waged war on the world.    Or, the world as it was known in Biblical times.   The Roman Empire certainly waged endless war with all of the known world.   And enslaved the world to Roman money that then allowed class & hierarchy to extort the surplus value of labor and wit from humanity thus allowing them to hire hitmen, shakedown artists and the mafia (standing armies, tax collectors and police) to maintain their power over humanity.    It seems many scholars believe the four empires of prophecy were the Roman Empire, the Greek Empire, the Persian Empire and the Babylonian Empire.    Or was this some future empire?    I’m not a Biblical scholar nor am I in the end of the world crowd.  Not that I am closed-minded to nearly anything.   But I am dubious of most mainstream belief systems.  Especially when they are really a manifestation of ego and self-interest.   But as I have noted ever since 2008, the end of the world as we know it is finished.   It’s never coming back.   Most people in the system really haven’t grappled with that could mean.    They are too busy living large off of a dying system.   They viewed 2008 as a contained financial crisis.   But, it has never been that on here.   It was the kickoff to a much more ominous global crisis that was coming.   And now we see the world is starting to reveal its true self.  And that world is pretty much exactly as has been foretold of on here for the last decade.         

To be human is to be ignorant and a hypocrite.   There is no escaping it.  I’m no different than anyone else.   Neither are you.    The question is if you see the hypocrisy and ignorance in yourself.   Or, does your own self-deceit only see it in others?   Most people  recognize some degree of their own hypocrisy and ignorance.    Which is why most people are able to forgive others for their failings in suffering from the human condition.   But today, I literally see no measurable wisdom in an position of power and authority anywhere.  (Institutions of the ego)    Only incredible and palpable ignorance and hypocrisy.   The state takes hypocrisy and ignorance to a new level as it waves its hypocritical and ignorant finger at humanity.    State actors are literally the most ignorant and hypocritical people in society.   By state actors, again, I mean anyone who has benefited from class & hierarchy.    That includes anyone who is considered an expert or authority by the state.  Corporate bureaucrats, politicians, religious lunatics, standing armies, the military-industrial complex, the medical-industrial complex, the industrial food complex and on and on.    People in ancient times who may have prophesized would have seen this repressive violence (because that is what ignorance and hypocrisy is)  just as clearly as we can see it today.    Anyway, I was recently reminded of this report so I decided to dust it off and post it.  

The main reason I put up this quote from Daniel is to make a point.  It’s not the face value of that quote or that I am now quoting Biblical prophecy as part of my views on what is about to come.   Instead, it’s actually far more sinister.   It is often very easy for me to see the endless contradictions, self-deceit and even outright delusions we all use to protect our tyrannical belief systems.   Mine included.   Belief systems that are steeped in ignorance and hypocrisy.     Which is why I generally steer clear of any belief systems.  Which means this site will never be a social media destination for sycophantic assholes and narcissists who love to see their own reflection in the mirror or in the shared belief systems of others.   You know, like Republicans and Democrats.    That is, because I spend too much time mocking just about every tyrannical belief system and self-deceit imaginable as the ego’s method of hiding the truth that is often in plain sight.  

End times seems to be a very common theme within religion specific to the United States.   It also seems to be very common within that theme that most of those people with whom it is popular are going to be “saved” while everyone else rots in hell.   And part of the rationale for their belief is said Biblical prophecy and signs of a collapsing world.  But, if that prophecy is true, then end times will usher in the greatest beast (evil) state or empire the world has ever seen.   And that beast will be the perpetuator of the greatest Godlessness and violence the world has ever seen.    Mind you, there is only one empire in this world today.   And it is the greatest empire the world has ever seen.   That beast would be the United States.  There literally is no other interpretation to the words written in Biblical prophecy.    If these are end times, there is no other empire today.   And there is no other empire of metal and bronze other  than the United States.     So, let me get this straight.   True believers are generally adherents to the “state religion” of the United States.   Which includes waging endless wars, subversion, chaos and violence for Jesus.  Well, and spreading the violent ideology of corporate capitalist domination around the world.   Obviously for Jesus too.   Well, and for the benefit of the beast or empire.   And, somehow all of that Godlessness is rationalized as being a “good” adherent to the state’s religion, er propaganda, that somehow intertwines the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth with the beast’s endless violence.   So, those who support the beast, its corporations, its standing armies and its political leadership from either party are those that are going to be saved and everyone else is headed for hell?  Has there ever been a greater contradiction of rationalizations?   

The United States corporate empire is clearly at war with the world.  We don’t spend as much or more than the rest of the world combined on weapons of mass destruction because we are spreading virtue, peace and prosperity in wars for Jesus.   We do so to protect our corporate empire and to pave the way for corporate looting of the world.   But it’s just not the military-industrial complex that is at war with the world.   It is empire’s dictatorial corporate power, its debt-enslaving financial system and its virus of corporate-created dystopian culture.  The violence of empire is well beyond weapons.   The greatest violence is much more sinister.   It is emotional and spiritual violence.   

The U.S. corporate state hypocritically wags its judgmental finger at every nation on earth while itself being the source of incredible misery.    Not just around the world but within its own borders.   Which is why Obama’s remarks about the world experiencing unprecedented peace is one of the most delusional and dystopian statements in human history.   

Contrarily, a group of international physicians has recently released a report that U.S. Empire has murdered more than 1.3 million people in its war on terror.   In other words, in order to fight terror, it uses terror.    It is hypocritically and ignorantly that which it pretends to defend the world from.   That is, it is a terrorist state.  It is a beast.   Whether it is “the” beast is not for me to say.   But it clearly is the most brutal and repressive empire of metal the world has ever seen.  And it uses those iron teeth and bronze claws to wage war on all of the world.          

Regardless of whether these figures are accurate, the reality is the United States military-industrial complex, financial system, corporations and politicians are arguably the greatest source of terrorism in the world today.   Although I certainly don’t “believe” there is any argument.   The case is pretty much settled with facts.

The British Royal Family’s (And British Aristocracy’s) Infatuation With Hitler, Nazi Germany And Fascism Exposed

First, just a brief remark about gold.   The long term outlook of gold on here is grim.   I’ve noted many times that gold could easily return to 1998 levels of about $250 an ounce.  Or, possibly even go to zero depending on how this global monetary system plays out.  And that gold is in a massive bubble propped up by central banks.    Just a few days ago gold took another dive.   And just a few days before that I noted for the umpteenth time that China would eventually start liquidating its gold positions putting downward pressure on gold prices.   Right on time, Russia Today yesterday implicated China sales in the most recent gold plunge.   Although the conspiracy theorists were already blaming it on some secret cabal.   Maybe so.   But not likely.   Ironically, if China starts liquidating its gold positions, and it clearly has not as of yet, it will do so to buy………  you guessed it, dollars.   I’ve noted this dynamic numerous times over the years including leading into the 2008 collapse when Russia was begging for dollars.   One must understand how the world works and when one does, one understands the dollar is king.   Period.   Those who have developed a belief system that China is going to save their gold positions or make them wildly wealthy by driving gold prices higher are simply looking for confirmation bias of their belief systems.    Or, put another way, people believe what they want to believe.   Belief systems are not a source of truth.  The truth is central banks are gold holder’s best friend.   They bailed out the gold holders in gold’s 2008 collapse and they are still bailing them out today.   The myth that gold is an anti-central banking currency is laughable and one of the biggest frauds of our time.   Without central banks, gold would have collapsed long ago.   And, that is why gold is going to collapse.   Because central banks and their grand experiment of useless money printing is going to fail.   

Now onto the post.  

"The 20th Century was a horrible litany of absurd experiments and atrocities committed by intellectuals, or by elite groupings that claimed a higher knowledge. Simple folk usually have enough common sense to avoid the worst errors. Sometimes they need to take very stern action to stop intellectuals leading us to ruin." - Ambrose Evans-Pritchard

Images we had to publish.

This is very interesting given past comments on here about class & hierarchy (the state), birthright privilege & monarchies and the two world wars.   As a human being, there is nothing that I think of being more of an affront to human dignity than class and birthright privilege.   The whole premise behind a king or a queen or anyone of privilege is an affront to our divinity.   No human being should have power over another human being.   Or, for that matter, any kind of privilege.  Class and hierarchy are constructs rooted in violence.   Neither can exist except through force whether that is outright physical violence or some type of esoteric emotional or spiritual violence like brainwashing and propaganda.   You know, like Washington politicians are public servants.   Or  corporate capitalism is synonymous with democracy.     Both world wars were created by the class and hierarchy.   ie, Both monarchs and corporate capitalism.  Mind you, Hitler was a monarch just as Angela Merkel and EU leaders are today.  Both presided over authoritarian, anti-democratic, unelected political tyranny.

There have always been rumors, accusations and conspiracies surrounding Hitler and specifically Britain.   Britain’s class-based society of self-proclaimed exceptionalism is really much of what Hitler modeled his regime after.   He noted many times his fondness for the British system.    I’ve delved into that a little bit on here in the past.  Including military expert and former British officer Liddell Hart’s investigative book that exposes concrete evidence for some degree of back channel cooperation between Hitler and the British aristocratic government that encouraged Germany to invade eastern Europe out of their fear of communism.   It seems a rather common viewpoint with some Russian academics from what I have seen that they go so far as to lay blame on Britain for encouraging Hitler to actually invade the Soviet Union.   Regardless, there is much we don’t know.   Because political dunces don’t want us to know how much they f*cked up and misjudged.   Because their asinine decisions and recklessness led to the death of upwards of 50 million people.   If democracy understood this, those British elites could have been tried at The Hague along with the Nazis.    And the dirty dealings of Britain’s aristocracy controlling its government would have clearly been exposed.   Political dunces everywhere are endlessly miscalculating with their insatiable and pathological desire for more control both domestically and internationally.    Regardless, this exposé clearly uncovers the British royal family and the British aristocracy’s infatuation with fascism and with Nazi Germany.   In fact, the direct words of Prince Edward, who would become King Edward, (and who is teaching the current queen mutha the Nazi salute in these pictures) leading up to World War II was that fascism had to come to Britain to defeat communism.  You can be assured that Prince Edward did not form his own opinion of this.   But, rather this was almost certainly a commonly held view of the British political-corporate capitalist corporatocracy.   It also helps explain why American and European corporate capitalists and bankers were so heavily involved in supporting Hitler leading up to World War II.   As I’ve noted on here in the past, corporate capitalism is naturally fascist.   Corporations are created by the state, are granted their power by the state and enrich their bureaucrats through violence of the state.   Dare I say that even if it has never been called this, corporations have always been fascist.   They most certainly were in the British Empire in 1776 when the Adam Smith’s East India Trading Company was running dope for the monarchy.

A system of class and hierarchy, be it political, gentried land owners, corporate capitalism or any other state construct, is a system of ignorance.  It is becoming more and more evident that the ignorance of Britain’s corporate and land owner aristocracy and the political dunces who do their will played a major role in the murder of 50 million people during World War II.    This type of ignorance develops in any form of institutionalization whether it is science, politics, corporate hierarchy or whatnot.  One can only maintain class and hierarchy by dumbing-down humanity.   Because there is no divine knowledge or somehow unique insight and brilliance granted to any one person or group of people.   That is pure mythology perpetuated by class to keep us enslaved.   By keeping all of humanity’s experiences and abilities suppressed, which is necessary for class and hierarchy to exist, we enter these dark times in human history.  We are led into these dark times by class and hierarchy.   It is only by freeing the light of enough human minds that we can ever get out from under these tyrannical, anti-democratic constructs created to dominate and control us for a privileged few.   The state is the virus and an enlightened humanity is the cure. 

This is why people like Bernie Sanders, who make comments that he wants to see the U.S. a lot more like Europe, may be genuine but they are wrong.   Europe created both world wars and through policies of mercantilism, colonialism, feudalism, empire, slavery and fascism, have butchered hundreds of millions of people in the name of corporate capitalism, corporate exploitation and corporate profits.     It’s this butchering and exploitative profits stolen from others that has allowed Europe to fund its welfare state.   Yes, Sander’s comments appeal to many people because this system is so wildly corrupt and because so many people are looking for a savior.   That includes their appeal to me.   But a savior that is not coming to save our endless expressions of emotional self-abandonment and self-deceit.   We are our own saviors and will take upon ourselves that responsibility….  or we will choose our own misery as our own self-inflicted fate.   Bernie talks a good game.   And I certainly do see an authentic nature to his message. (I will be writing more about both him and Trump.)    But, as a baseline, we first needs to start with empowering/making responsible (the flip sides of the same coin) humanity by ridding ourselves of class and hierarchy and embracing real democracy and democratic economics.   Then, any minor holes that still remain can be filled with social uplift programs, guaranteed work of quality and dignity or whatnot to ensure everyone can rise to their level of ability and lead a self-actualized existence.    That is not Europe.  Look at Europe today.   Their monarchs and merchants are literally eating the common man’s children.    European social dynamics are a virus and that is why they are in massive chaos.  

Europe is generally a highly stratified, class-based caste system where social birth status and familial social standing plays a major role in people’s fate.   Merit plays little role except in serving the corporate state.   The same class and hierarchy that existed from the 1600s-1900s that led to tens of millions of Europeans coming to America is still the same tyrannical system that exists today.    There are still a dozen monarchies in Europe today.   Regardless of whether these monarchies still hold absolute power is irrelevant.   It’s the mindset of society that would allow class and hierarchy to maintain a caste structure. (Ask a Frenchman why they don’t have a monarchy and you’ll get a passionate earful.)   Monarchies and class are a form of self-inflicted emotional tyranny that subconsciously allows anti-democratic forces to flourish in European society.   That includes within the class-based constructs of corporate capitalism that the monarchs of Europe created to control the common man long before the common man gained any democratic rights.  

The biggest problem in the United States is that it now looks like Europe.    Democracy is dead and we live in a highly stratified, class-based, anti-democratic caste system of state oppression enforced by ignorant politicians.  That system is extinguishing the divine light of humanity both here and in Europe.    It’s the same devil’s dung and ignorance that led Prince Albert and his aristocratic cronies to fall in love with fascism leading up to World War II.   Because they feared the common man had enough of their exploitation and that may mean another state virus, communism,  could gain hold in Britain.

A Few Remarks On Crises In Europe And China And A Viewpoint On The Manchurian Candidate

Well, I could sum this post up without really writing anything other than I told you so countless times over the last decade.   Chinese markets may yet go higher before their ultimate crash.   In many regards China is far different than any other crisis the world has ever seen.    The only one I want to focus on here is that China is a nation with a currency that is not convertible.  Sure there are corrupt methods through which the state elites are extorting money out of the country by breaking their own rules.   And much of that money is ending up in the U.S, which our pathological leadership will gladly accept.   But we really  have no experience with so much useless money being created in a single nation and no place for it to go or no way to leave the country.    And that is almost certainly why the Chinese stock market is experiencing another bubble.   Not yet as large as the 2008 bubble but still quite large and possibly to get much larger.   China’s capital bubble collapsed in 2008.   So all of that stimulus in the years since went into consumption.   Now, that bubble appears to be in full retreat.   So, the massive overproduction and overconsumption of the Chinese economy is, if not in collapse yet, at least starting to roll over.   Where is all of that money supposed to now go?  Into stocks.   Theoretically, the Chinese stock market could go much, much higher.   By the way, this is what is happening globally, not just China.  ie, This is a crisis of capitalism.   With China being the biggest bubble the world has ever seen, contained within the biggest financial bubble the world has ever seen, how China experiences its crisis is likely to be without precedence with regards to volatility.   There is a lot of useless money to vanquish in China and because the currency isn’t convertible, most of it will never leave the country so the fireworks should be incredible. 

By the way, remember when you used to read about the Chinese central bank buying all of that gold and how bullish it was supposed to be for gold?   And how China was going to unseat U.S. empire and the yuan was going to become the global currency?     I’ve rained all over that parade for the last ten years on here and longer in writings elsewhere.  And instead wrote that China would eventually become a net seller of gold or would have to devalue its currency or its currency would simply collapse under the weight of its massive corruption.  How about that Asian century so many told us about?   Once again, the yuan is worthless.   The Chinese communists just don’t know it yet.   And about that Russian, Chinese partnership to unseat U.S. empire?   Is that looking more and more like a joke?   How many people placed their bets on that delusion?   U.S. empire will collapse and it will collapse from within as has always been written on here.   The U.S. empire is massively larger than anyone seemingly appreciates and is wildly more powerful than either China, Russia and the rest of the world combined.  That’s not a statement of admiration for the the level of evil it represents.  It’s a statement of fact.

The daily political, financial and socioeconomic noise that c0ntinues to unfold around the world is really irrelevant to the final outcome of this cycle.   It won’t change the outcome.   I have laid the results of my analysis out there for the last decade on here and even longer elsewhere.   Nothing in that analysis has changed.    I could lay claim as the top socioeconomic forecaster in the world but there are others who are selling something that already take that claim.  So, I am not going to quibble.   That isn’t a statement of arrogance but of hard work and abilities that make us all individually unique.   Abilities suppressed by the state (class and hierarchy) and corporations.    Letting your light shine in this world has become a sin as fear, ignorance and conformity tightens its grip on the mantle of power and authority.   The only thing that changes with daily events is the ultimate crisis continues to become much larger as the state attempts to keep a “pretend” world of control going.   The more attempts at control (violence) they mound upon this existing system in order to deceive us, the greater the ultimate volatility and end-state crisis.    Money, debt, capitalism, communism and the like are simply the control systems enforcing greater and greater state violence.   That is all that is really happening around the world today.   Each new horrific headline is simply another tremor that the state then applies more violence to (more contrived rules and more illusory attempts at control) in order to paper over the reality.    That reality is the state is already in terminal failure.   We are simply waiting on the illusion of control to give way to reality.    The dozens of major outcomes I have written would happen or would likely happen have either already revealed themselves, are starting to reveal themselves or are coming and there is nothing the state is going to do to stop them.    The daily events in Europe, the United States, China or elsewhere are just tremors of a greater fate that was created by social, financial, monetary and economic policies put in place long ago.   The universe does not play by the rules of the ego’s self-deceit or the state’s intent of control.   There is no option in the outcome of “just kidding” and now I want to take my marbles and go home and pretend none of this is happening.  Or, masking over reality while amusing ourselves to death so that  we can pretend all is well with humanity.  There is no way for this system to avert its karmic fate. 

I could go on and on about Greece and China but I’ve beaten Europe and China like a rented mule on here for the last decade.   There is really nothing new under the sun.   Just more tremors.   And because there are so many, I’m far less inclined to respond to them unless there is a point I would like to make.   And that is what I would like to do with the remainder of this post.    That includes granting some degree of play to conspiracy theory.   Something I have noted often that I simply don’t participate in.  I have noted one possible conspiracy theory that I entertain on here.    Conpiracy itself?  Of course, there is endless conspiring behind closed doors.   But conspiracy is not conspiracy theory.   Most conspiracy theories are reflections of our own mind’s paranoia and fear.    There is growing evidence that communism is far from dead.    Something I wrote about just a handful of posts ago.   I wrote some years ago that I would guess that Obama may be a communist.   Well, I want to push that last post on communism a little further in these ramblings.    But first some more baselining using the mess that has developed in Europe over the last four or five years.  

Europe certainly has become exhausting over the last few years.   It’s the same ego-created drama day after day, week after week, month after month.    All in some effort to deny reality.    That’s all drama is.   It’s the ego’s attempt at maintaining its own self-delusions through control.   But what has happened in the last week or so plays  into a dynamic I have covered on here over the last handful of years.   That is, it is highly possible that we could see contract law collapse around the world.   Greece’s prime minister has, for all practical purposes, illegitimately placed assets owned by the people of Greece into receivership as collateral to criminals in the EU without any authority to do so.    And Costas Lapavitsas on why the only way out for Greece is to leave the EU(And direct analysis of the pure evil criminality of this deal including a little diatribe on money.  It should be no surprise that he recommends the radical changes I have talked about on here not just for Greece but the U.S. – default on the debt, nationalize the banks, return to the drachma…and Greece probably needs to create a currency board to try to manage the exchange rate for some period of time until a stabilization takes place, something he doesn’t discuss.  And as he notes, which is so important, with public money, Greek businesses could re-conquer the domestic market and create substantial economic opportunity.   Something that I have talked about ad nauseam about public banking and democratic money in the United States.  This is a good video!)    This could easily unwind the legal framework of contract law.   If debts start to unwind for any reason, we could have everyone believe that they should receive the same belief be they individuals, nations or whatnot.    Expect all European nations to push for debt forgiveness if the IMF’s private remarks (that were almost certainly leaked for intent) about Greece.   The state continues to push greater and greater violence upon humanity in an effort to keep this system going but once that dam bursts, all hell could break loose and the entire premise of contractual obligations could vanish.  That has potentially unbelievable and immeasurable implications.   That means collateral is owned by whom?  Debt obligations will be paid by whom?   Property is owned by whom?   Trade agreements are enforced by whom?  Not just in Europe but everywhere.   

Tsipras, similar to other political clowns in this world, has gone well beyond his mandate of public servant to an autocratic tyrant.  He is now in the process, if successful, of cementing an even worse fate through his own failures to find the courage and resolve to face down evil.  I’m not wagging my hypocritical finger at him either.   We all do this in our lives.  We just don’t see it in ourselves but the ego clearly sees it in everyone else.    But in times of great crisis, leaders must find the courage and resolve to do what is right to stop the massive suffering of others.   This is simply just another reason why humanity should not be ruled by man but by our natural rights.   Tsipras is typical of the crisis in men we have in the world today.   That is, the failure of men to be men.    To have the courage and fortitude to defend the weak and those who are unable to defend themselves. (Not to mention, to defend our natural rights not to be debt slaves or to grant corporations and unelected bureaucrats control over our natural rights and democratic sovereignty.)   And to hold the ideals of all that is right and just and true.   Notice I said ideals.   We glorify ideals not imperfect people suffering from the human condition.    I’ve talked about this before but since it is Europe in crisis, let me repost the ideals of men that used to define western culture as taken from the the code of chivalry.

  • To fear God and maintain His Church
  • To serve the liege lord in valour and faith
  • To protect the weak and defenceless
  • To give succour to widows and orphans
  • To refrain from the wanton giving of offence
  • To live by honour and for glory
  • To despise pecuniary reward
  • To fight for the welfare of all
  • To obey those placed in authority
  • To guard the honour of fellow knights
  • To eschew unfairness, meanness and deceit
  • To keep faith
  • At all times to speak the truth
  • To persevere to the end in any enterprise begun
  • To respect the honour of women
  • Never to refuse a challenge from an equal
  • Never to turn the back upon a foe

Obviously, these can be be updated to embrace modern society.  Never refuse a challenge from an equal no longer applies since we don’t have duels and sword fights but should instead rely on nonviolence to resolve offenses against each other.  But not allowing lies or untruths spewed by someone impugning your character certainly could be a modern interpretation.  And, to obey those in positions of authority certainly should be replaced with obeying the rule of law based on natural rights.  Or, at least, the reasoned, compassionate, humane rule of law based on our natural rights.  In a free society, no person should ever be subjugated to the authority of another human being; only through natural rights and the written rule of law defending those natural rights.  But, other than that, they are pretty much timeless responsibilities appreciated regardless of culture.   What I find most compelling from the above list is “to despise pecuniary reward”.  That a man’s view of justice, responsibility and our moral fabric are not swayed by monetary gain or the possibility of it.  Alexis Tsipras might need a refresher course here.  How much has this responsibility been abrogated around the world where the god of money (debt) defines and determines everything? 

On that note, watching the drama unfold in Europe, does anyone still believe the EU is based on any kind of democracy as it was  sold to the European people?   Please.   The EU was always about control.   Watching terrorists Angela Cronus Merkel and Wolfgang Schauble, Jean-Claude Juncker and Mario Draghi devour Greece is like watching ISIS devour its way across the Middle East.    The EU’s construct was defined in terms of the rights of workers and capital aka as some sort of communist/fascist manifesto for private corporations and private banks by their political stooges rather than human rights and democracy.    For those who were hoodwinked early on, and we should not be ashamed that we were hoodwinked by pathology, we can clearly see this now.   With this now manifestly evident, and with the democratic will of the Greek people being codified by recent election results, and that democratic will being shat upon by a corrupt Greek and EU political and corporate elite, there is clearly no legitimacy left in the Greek government or the EU.    The state has been exposed as nothing more than a pathological control construct worried more about maintaining its power than serving humanity.  The EU is doling out massive violence in order to prop up a failed system; something talked about ad nauseam on here.  ie, That we would see greater and greater violence around the world necessary to keep these state-created control systems going until the pressure exerted resulted in massive crisis or blowback.

It’s become popular, and I think reasonable, to state that Greece is coming to Italy or Greece is coming to the United States or Greece is coming to China or wherever.   The world of humanity is in a fight for its very life against the state.   But with the decisions this week of Alexis Tsipras, if these new economic sanctions (austerity) of the EU/Greek government hold, maybe what is more reasonable is to assume we will see “ISIS” come to Europe.    I don’t mean that literally.   What I mean by that is Greece could experience total political collapse, an overthrow of the ruling aristocracy and, if this drags on long enough, terrorism in Germany and Belgium (the headquarters of the EU) similar to the terrorism we saw in the American colonies leading up to the Revolutionary War.  Or, for that matter, terrorism that has been part of Europe for a long time.   This crisis is already starting a new phase with violence in the streets of Greece.   Let the world bear witness to what that evil will do to innocent Greek people if  left to its own  volition.   Yes, innocent.   The average Greek lives on very paltry wages and few social safety nets.    The EU and the Greek ruling class has already taken all of the Greek people’s dignity (as a microcosm for the dignity that has been taken from humanity by the state around the world) and are trying to steal the last ounce of their humanity and, even their lives if they could.   Evil covets that which humanity has and will ultimately steal the life out of all of us if we don’t wake up.   But, oh how the world is waking up.  

Somehow we have come to believe that democracy means everything is solved amicably or we all hold hands and sing kumbaya to solve our issues.  And, for the most part, if democracy is working, that is probably true.   But democracy cannot work under corporate capitalism, or under a political union of unelected bureaucrats or under a monetary system not controlled by democracy.   Instead, the EU requires sentient beings become serfs and wage/debt slaves to consume capitalism’s endless overproduction.   And that means the masses must be made ignorant to be coerced (violence) into doing so.  Democracy is dead.   For now.   But in the jungle of corporate/political domination and forced human competition,  violence begets violence.  So when people are oppressed to the point of having nothing to lose, they will respond instinctively aka primitively/tribally and will do what they must to survive.  They are eating out of dumpsters in Greece and they have very few social safety nets- 

In ancient Athens, the birthplace of democracy, after years of trying to reign in a pathological economic/political aristocracy that had subverted the rights of the common man and left him with nothing but misery at the long end of the stick of class warfare, the people of Athens simply rose up, executed the economic/political aristocracy and restored order.   This was the foundational birth of democracy in Athens.   Sound familiar?   It should.   We could easily be repeating that history here.   What is happening around the world is the same class warfare that led to endless  revolts and executions of the aristocracy.  When the aristocracy is willing to literally let people starve or live without basic human needs, it doesn’t take long for people to consider that their lives could be a better by eliminating the aristocracy (the state).   How does one think that the control system of communism became so popular?  It became popular because of the massive injustices of the class and hierarchy of corporate capitalism or Europe’s monarchs and merchants.   And executing the predatory capitalist class & the politicians who do their bidding was part of the purges of communism.     The world had never heard of the forced, dumbed-down sameness and conformity of communism until the world first experienced capitalist exploitation.  Or, as this Pope has noted many times, unfettered capitalism is the devil’s dung.

The main reason I wanted to put up this post was to highlight the fact that in the last week Obama talked directly to Greece’s prime minister and expressed his desire for Greece to stay in the EU.   Again, something he has also publicly stated about the U.S. wants Britain to stay in the EU.   But let me take a few paragraphs to discuss a few reasons why this is so important.  

In actuality, it is not the U.S. that wishes anything.   These are Obama’s personal ideologies (emotional control systems or tyrannies of the mind created by the ego)  that wishes Britain, Greece and all terrorized people remain in the undemocratic, unelected bureaucracy of the EU.  As the world continues to reveal itself we get a greater indication of who represents humanity and who represents the illegitimate autocratic authority of the state.  And what the personal ideologies and belief systems are of the political stooges destroying humanity.   And what the possible control-driven agenda of different players are, be they countries or people.   As more and more is exposed, it becomes more and more obvious that Obama is likely a communist or communist sympathizer cut from the same mold as the communists (and fascists) that created the centrally-planned, unelected EU.   If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck and quacks like a duck…..   Trite labels aside, it’s important for humanity to clearly see what is happening in the world to ensure this never happens again or that protections can be put in place to make it more unlikely.    There is no need to start another reign of terror of McCarthyism.  Being a communist is not illegal.  And being an ideologue for any other state-created “ism”, including corporate capitalism, is no better.   But understanding if the duck is quacking, and thus is likely a duck, helps us appreciate how and why our world is literally being destroyed.  (And has been for most of the 20th century, if not longer.)  No one really knows exactly how many agendas there are or who is aligned with whom but linking the world through corporate governance is in fact happening.   And the disappearance of borders that serves to flatten the world into a system of dumbed-down corporate wage and debt slavery has been happening for more than twenty years.    So, with the recent comments by Obama about wishing Greece & Britain to stay in the EU, maybe we can gain a greater appreciation of the relationship Obama had/has with self-described communist Bill Ayers (and his communist parents), Valerie Jarrett who is from a communist family,  Van Jones who is or was a self-described communist,  Jeremiah Wright and as a youth American communist party member Frank Davis.  How many more are there in his past?   Apparently, Obama’s mother and grandparents may too have been communists.  Obama’s ideologies and belief systems certainly could be behind a wish to destroy America’s Constitution, a system as imperfect as it is is still better than anything else in this world, based on individual rights and freedoms.   Even a blind squirrel finds a nut some time - maybe there is some truth behind the Republican political rhetoric.   

This is where the conspiracy theories come in.   There is some wacky stuff out there that now may not be so wacky.    There is a physicist by the name of Tom Fife who stated before Obama was elected that he was in Russia on a business trip in 1992.  And was essentially told by some former Soviet apparatchik of a Manchurian candidate (a politician controlled by private interests)  that would be a black U.S. president groomed by a network of communists who have global ties.    Fife actually spoke of this before Obama was elected.  I’ve seen and heard his musings and he doesn’t appear to be politically-motivated or crazy at face value.  And then there came this bizarro revelation - could Obama have been groomed by communists from his teens or early twenties?    You can’t determine the odds of whether all of this is real because there is literally no transparency into what is happening in the world today.   Is this and much more secrecy behind Obama, including how he got into Harvard, (a haven for aristocratic state liberals)   just nonsense?   Maybe.   Could communists around the world be united in their underground efforts even after the fall of the Soviet Union?  Hey, stranger things have happened so all we can conclude is there is some degree of circumstantial smell in the air that really needs further discovery.

Capitalism, communism, fascism, what’s really the difference?   They are all control constructs created by the state (class & hierarchy).   If you actually dig into history, it’s a matter of public record that capitalism helped create and fund much of the Soviet Union.   And after World War II a large number of American corporations helped rebuild the Soviet Union.    Someone recently shared this remark to me- 

I am currently reading a book called “Into Oblivion”.  It is about a German Pioneer Battalion (305) that marched across southern Russia in the summer of 1942 and met its fate at Stalingrad along with much of the German 6th Army.  The men of the 305th Pioneer Battalion spent several months trying to subdue the Soviets inside the Barrikady gun factory.  As these German soldiers fought for every inch of the factory grounds, literally back and forth for months, they became increasingly bitter as losses mounted and the unit was reduced from 500 men to less than 40.  One common theme, however, was their shock at seeing every single machine tool (large and small) inside the Soviet-built factory stamped with the names of large German corporations.  A bitter irony for them for sure.

Of course, it is so well documented now that western capitalism helped create Hitler and there appears to be some evidence they even helped fund his political rising.   And who did the corporate capitalists extoll the virtues of in this last decade?  Communist China; a  criminal state asylum that has butchered more people than the Nazis could ever dream of.   And they are still butchering.   Corporate capitalism is a control construct and thus needs an authoritarian, all-powerful, centralized political control system to enforce its tyranny on society.   In other words, capitalism is clearly consistent with socialism, fascism and communism.   And we see examples of all three working in concert with capitalism today.   That’s why our federal government has become an all-powerful leviathan well beyond its constitutional limits on power.   Because without the force of the state, capitalism would collapse.    Hey, the free market dunces can’t hide behind democracy any more.   We have examples all across the world where capitalism works well with feudalism, fascism, colonialism, mercantilism, socialism, communism, authoritarianism and every other ism the state can dream up to allow class and hierarchy to plunder humanity.  What we don’t have is an example of where corporate capitalism works with democracy.  And we never have.  Unless you want to call Robber Barons, Pinkerton guards murdering uppity workers, child labor, slave labor, prison labor, slave wages and the like as democracy.

The reality is the virus is the state.   What form it takes is really irrelevant.   The Soviet apparatchiks reconstituted their power after the collapse of communism.   And they did it through embracing capitalism.   It’s still a state control construct that dominates the masses and plunders on behalf of the state.  Pathology seeks to control humanity.   What form it takes is really irrelevant.   They’ll dream up something else soon enough if we allow them but let’s be honest, there’s really little difference between a communist and a corporate capitalist.   They both are control constructs that use corporations to enslave humanity to a dumbed-down system of work that enriches the state.

I have been more and more willing to consider what may be possible with Obama’s actions of trying to recreate the communist/fascist EU in the United States with these massive trade agreements.  Agreements which really have little to do with trade and a lot to do with global corporate governance, just like the EU.   And, in fact, those trade agreements also link the U.S. to the EU.    Obama clearly wants Britain and Greece to remain in the EU because he is trying to create the same unelected, anti-democratic, corporate capitalist-dominated bureaucracy in the U.S.   And just like in Europe, the fascist right in this nation has joined forces with the communist left to create the perfect paradise of corporate capitalist subjugation.

The writing on the wall is clear.   The fascist right and the communist left have found common ground in expanding corporate domination into a flattened, dystopian world dominated by corporate capitalism and politicians.   Obama, through his own delusions, still continues to try to roll out a world of corporate power and corporate-dominated trade agreements that are actually collapsing before his very eyes in the form of the EU.   Yet his pathology’s intent of control is so overwhelming that he clearly does not see reality.  It is this same ideology/pathology that appears to grip Greece’s current leadership that has dystopian views of a linked European government. 

This is the same reason Alexis Tsipras failed as Greece’s leader.   As a communist, he must believe in the statist ideology of a single, centralized, unelected bureaucracy governing all of humanity.   So, it soon became evident he never really considered leaving the undemocratic EU.   That all of the drama he created had only one intent.   That is, of finding a way to keep the Greek people in the  terrorist organization of unelected bureaucrats that are destroying the rights and lives of people in Europe.   Just like the undemocratic actions of Barack Obama and the Republican Party in the United States.   We don’t have public servants.   We have autocratic rulers trying to enslave us to institutions of man or institutions of the ego.  

I wonder when the Greek people will say enough is enough.   Greece has been manipulated and preyed upon time and again for hundreds of years.   Most recently, since the end of WWII when Britain essentially invaded the country and murdered Greek nationalist rebels who were more sympathetic to communism than Britain’s corporate capitalism.   Then in the 1960s the CIA overthrew a democratically-elected Greek government and installed a fascist puppet dictatorship that was clearly the most brutal “developed country” government post World War II.  (Once again, who says capitalism doesn’t like fascism?)   Mind you, there is still tremendous anti-American animosity in Greece because of it.   And given Greece would likely run to Russia, the NATO military-industrial complex certainly wishes to see Greece remain in the communist/fascist EU.    Then in the last 15 years the EU and its communist/fascist central government has again preyed on the Greek people to lead us to where we are.    Do you think the common man in Greece is fed up with foreign interlopers?  Oftentimes interlopers brought upon them by their own corrupt aristocratic, corporate state government?   Greek GDP is down over 25% and has been for the last handful of years.    The country is essentially non-functioning and is ruled by a capitalist aristocracy in concert with fascist/communist unelected EU bureaucrats.   Greece only has one way out.   The EU is headed for collapse anyway.  There are separatist movements gaining populist momentum in just about every EU country.  The more this system reveals itself, the more countries will be forced into abandoning it by a populist, democratic revolt.   The fastest rising anti-EU movement appears to be France and its leader is who may become the next leader of the country, Marine Le Pen.

NASA’s First Close Up Images Of Pluto

Link here.   There will be much more in coming days and weeks.   If you click on the images of Charon and Pluto in this article, they will eventually take you to close ups of both.   Pluto is obviously still an active planet from the first close-ups.  This is the conclusion scientists have drawn given the dearth of craters on the surface.     Obviously, this fits well with continuous transformation, regeneration and rebirth associated with Pluto.   Smile

NASA’s New Horizon Closes In On The Destroyer Of Worlds (Pluto)

We are now just a few days away from the New Horizon mission’s closest approach to Pluto.   This is really quite an amazing experience for science.

Given the first rule in government spending is why build one when you can have two at twice the price, NASA’s two web sites for the mission are here and here.    The Guardian also has a pretty good story on the latest here and Wired has some interesting print on the reaction of scientists to some of Pluto’s geology.

Let me make a few choice comments here as well.  I’ll try to keep this brief with a little background…..   Some years ago the scientific establishment downgraded Pluto from a planet to a dwarf planet.   Hey, the establishment has to always be doing something useless to justify its existence.   But, planetary and mundane astrologers, I mean real astrologers, not those who write horoscopes near the Sunday funnies section of the newspaper, know that Pluto is not a dwarf planet.   Pluto is the most powerful planet in our solar system.  And, it is possible that statement may actually not only apply to planetary and mundane astrology but to the real world.  

Humanity today stands on the shoulders of giants.   Nikola Tesla and Albert Einstein, whom were on opposite sides of a disagreement between factions of science, were both two of these giants.  There is no one alive today that compares to the genius of these two men.   There are a lot of incredibly smart people in this world but we have become institutionalized.   That has some amazing ramifications for the kind of world we live in.    Electrical engineering, electrical research and theories of electricity in the time of Tesla were pioneering and new ideas, new research and new inventions were put forth at a dizzying pace.     There were countless amazing men who were making amazing discoveries and doing amazing things.  There was no well-accepted science or ideology or institutionalization.   The mind was free and men were able to therefore think outside of the prison that eventually becomes mainstream scientific dogma and ideology that creates institutionalization.  (Mind you, it was men and not corporations making these advances.  Corporations suppress and attempt to control the purity of science for the intent of profit which is why we are in the midst of such incredible scientific bullshit and junk science that is going to end in the collapse of much of institutionalized science.)   My point is those were the golden ages of electrical discovery and there is nothing today that is anywhere near comparable be that in talent or research.

I’ve noted on here in the past that we don’t really know what electricity is.   It just goes to show you how ignorant yet arrogant we are today.   And how that ignorance has exalted science as its new religion.   We know how to manipulate electricity but we don’t really know what it is.   Most people, including many scientists, would mock me for making such a statement.   But, then they’ve never really thought fundamentally about the question of what electricity really is.   So, they don’t really know what they are talking about.    Anyway, the history of electricity’s discover is really quite profoundly interesting.   And did not come out of theoretical models but out of pure coincidence and accidents.  

During those golden ages of discovery, there were many theories about the concept of the aether.   Or ether, if you prefer.   I believe it was Tesla who first theorized that matter itself had no inherent energy.   But, rather matter drew all of its energy from the aether, or simplisticly, the invisible force making up all of the empty space in the universe.   And, as such, all man needed to do was to discover and invent ways of tapping into the aether for endless free energy.    And Tesla had a vision of endless free energy for the world that his research was driving towards but frankly, lacked the funding to prove.  When Tesla died, the United States government confiscated his research papers and they still remain classified.   So, you can see why many free thinkers and conspiracy theorists have raised Tesla to the level of god.  They believe the government is covering up free energy solutions in order to enslave us to corporate greed.   Now, I don’t have an opinion on this topic because I’m not Nikola Tesla but it is not impossible that his theories had some credibility.   Remember, the scientists who were inventing all of this new science were some of the most brilliant people in human history.   So, their theories, while not mainstream today, have not necessarily been disproven.  They just aren’t accepted as the prevailing theory and there are some good reasons for that.  

Anyway, the theory of the aether was eventually supplanted by modern physics.   Substantially because of Einstein.   And the fact that Einstein developed the math that proved his theory.   To his death, Tesla mocked the physics community’s theories on electricity.   Given the accomplishments of Tesla, one must consider his theories could possibly have some merit.   And, interestingly, Einstein and Tesla may not have been too far apart in a larger picture view given Einstein’s work on Unified Field Theory (the theory of everything), which he could never finish.  In some regards, both men were looking at the same problem through a different lens.  

As an aside, in discussions of the brain and mind, I’ve noted on here in the past that some scientific experiments have provided unusual results that makes it appear that our actions are controlled from outside of our body.   There are so many things about life that could much more easily be explained by a universal energy source providing the energy for all matter.   Now, I am not stating that I support this theory.   Just that I have an open mind.  Existing models of the universe involve just pulling a concept like dark matter to describe 95+ percent of the universe out of institutionalized science’s ass because their models now don’t work.  Maybe dark matter is the aether and the scientists of the 1800s were right. 

Regardless, that golden age of electrical discovery died off very quickly once corporate capitalism learned it could mint mind-boggling profits off of much of the basic research of Tesla and countless other geniuses.   Profit is the high priest of a corporate and profit-dominated society and once the grifters and con men of corporate and political control got involved, basic electrical research died off quite rapidly and the focus was turned to monetizing discovery for the intent of profit.   Monetizing science is not necessarily a bad thing  but this highlights the dilemma we still face with science and basic research that does not derive any profit in a profit-driven, corporate-controlled society.    There are literally no good methods of funding basic and theoretical research.   So what happens?   It just doesn’t get done.   To a large extent, we are living off the brilliance of men who lived more than 100 years ago in many aspects of our lives.   At least during that time, a scientist, engineer or inventor could tinker in his garage.   Not today.    Eisenhower noted this in his full speech on citing the well-known remark “beware the military-industrial complex”.   His words included that science was no longer done by the tinkerer or the inventor but instead by the corporate and government-funded establishment and how this was a potentially huge problem.  

This is much more profound than anyone in the mainstream realizes.    Science is dying.  And basic research is essentially dead.   Especially since the Clinton administration.    Especially when it doesn’t align with institutionalized scientific ideology.    So, the research simply doesn’t get done.   And because the pipeline of new theories and resultant economic value they always create is vastly empty, unless something changes, (Getting the state, politicians and corporations out of the manipulation and control of scientific research.)  humanity could be witnessing a very dark economic future.   The Soviet Union actually did a much better job of managing this than western society.    Interestingly, on that note, Tesla died broke.   A man that, in many regards single-handedly created the most complex, largest industry in the world today was f*cked over and his research stolen by corporate capitalism without any patent or invention payments.    Why is that?   Because how is a single man with little to no money going to beat the system and massive corporations?  We see this time and again in today’s world where corporations exploit the masses through endless predatory behavior.   Tesla’s fate was really no different than any of the consumerism debt slaves we see today.   The only difference is that over the last 130 years corporations have simply increased their grip on humanity to the point that there is no escape anywhere.   Anyway, there is essentially no basic or theoretical electrical research conducted today nor has there been since corporate capitalism essentially destroyed its golden age of research over one hundred years ago.  

So, back to today.   I’ve railed repeatedly on institutionalized physics views of the universe.   95+% of the universe remains unaccounted for in their theories.   That’s oftentimes the least of the problems with their theories.   Now, obviously some of applied physics works quite well.  But we can thank Newton, and not modern physics, for that.   There is ample, and quite frankly, overwhelming evidence that much of theoretical physics is one big jumble of bullshit perpetuated by keepers of the faith and the institutionalization of perceived knowledge.   So, every time a new discovery doesn’t fit into their existing models, in order to protect those in the system and the institutionalized “faith” they have created, the new discoveries are curve fitted, shoe horned or contrived into existing theories to make the data fit.   You know, like human-caused global warming theories, none of whose predicted outcomes have actually come true and none of whose research has been proven accurate over time.  Or, Wall Street’s theoretical models that failed miserably in 2008 and are going to fail again.   Or, the theoretical horseshit of economics that is a massive and consistently wrong form of voodoo.   It’s no coincidence that failure of human-caused global warming, Wall Street’s models and the economics profession have been written of for years on here.  

There are alternative theories of the universe that provide a much better explanation in some regards.   One is the electrical universe theory.  This theory and some others aren’t put forth by kooks and loons.   There are brilliant scientists, even scientists that worked for NASA and other mainstream institutions, that posited some of these theories.   While the electric universe theory is not unified, and thus has some differing views because it is not institutionalized, the concept of the aether does reappear within this theory.  In other words, what was once considered as a basis to the theory of electricity by thousands of brilliant minds is not quite dead.  It just isn’t accepted in the mainstream.    But science is not a popularity contest as it has been turned into today.   Science is the search for truth.   Now, obviously the electric universe is considered fringe by institutionalized science.   Just as people who reject the junk models of human-caused global warming based on strong understandings of science are considered fringe today.   Institutionalized physics science hides behind their models just like the failed global warming crowd.  The reality is no one theory or single person understands everything about everything and there are massive holes everywhere.   Science is the search for truth, not truth itself as many nonscientists often spout with an intent of controlling others.   Einstein failed in his attempts at creating a unified theory.  Tesla failed to prove his theory.   Modern physics has many dubious and outright laughable theories.   The reality is we just don’t know nearly as much as the mainstream would have you believe.   So, it’s laughable when someone says the science is settled whenever it involves theories rather than practical applications with repeatable outcomes.  

Here’s where I’m going with this.   As you can see from the graphic below, Pluto’s uniquely highly elliptical orbit  and its large inclination to the ecliptic, or the plane of other planet’s orbit around the sun makes it unique amongst all planets.  Now, if one understands how the electric universe could potentially work, or if aspects of it could be accurate, there are some interpretations that may make Pluto the most powerful planet in the solar system.   I’m curious if anyone reading this could tell us why that is?   If you do, then feel free to email me.   If your answer is accurate, I’ll post it.   If not, maybe at some point I will delve into this in detail.   But for now I just want to state that not only is Pluto the destroyer of worlds in astrology, but it may also be so in reality. 

Science is almost never settled unless it is practical science or engineering science like using engineering mechanics to determine the load carrying capacity of an I –Beam in a bridge.  You can’t put the earth’s climate into a lab and run experiments ten thousand times to verify your results.   At best, scientific theory is nothing more than the leading edge of what humanity perceives.   And we all know how perceptions are just that.   How many people perceived the world was experiencing unprecedented prosperity in 2008 before the start of what will be the biggest economic crisis in human history?  That includes most mainstream scientists who were duped.   Do you think scientists are any different in their perceptions surrounding theories they defend because they pay the rent or are fundamental to their own career?   Frankly, this economic crisis is, in large part, created by science.   At worst, scientific theories are crackpot delusions impacted by self-interest, money and other forms of deceit. 

Who knows.   Maybe Nikola Tesla will get the last laugh.   Or maybe Pluto will.

A July 4th Post: Thomas Paine And The State’s Endless War On The Common Man (And Woman)

I was originally going to put up an  astrological post on the battle between good and evil that kicked off in Scorpio of 2013 for this 4th of July.   It will be the only astrological post I will ever put up on here.    I still plan to put that post up very soon but it has become gargantuan in scope.   The topic is wide and deep enough to write a book.   So, it requires a fair amount of editing into something that is reasonably concise and readable for a blog.   I may actually have to index it depending on its final length.    Itt is going to take some time to whittle that post into something that is readable.   It will be the most important post I ever put up on this blog so it’s coming soon enough as my next major post. 

In the mean time humanity continues to lurch toward its showdown with the global criminal class so I decided to put up a post on Thomas Paine and how relevant his writings and viewpoints are to what is happening around the world today.   Humanity would be well-served to reacquaint itself with Paine’s principled view of democracy.   I think many people will appreciate how special interests and self interest have brainwashed us to a greater and greater degree over two hundred plus years.   How much what the mainstream social views manipulated by class are not freedom at all but tyranny.    Both parties in this nation, and those who outsource their thinking to them, look very substantially like the British aristocracy in 1776.   Common man doesn’t mean uneducated man.   It means ordinary people of all walks of life.    When you read this, I think it’s important to keep in mind that Thomas Paine’s views and words are what stirred this nation to democratic revolution.   The real state of mind and thought processes of all common people were captivated and captured by Paine’s appeals to their sensibilities and their own personal empowerment.   He had exponentially more of an impact on the psyche of the colonists than any other founding father.  Yet for two hundred years all of his ideals have been, and continue to be, under massive attack in this nation and around the world.    In reality, the American Revolution was a revolution of, by and for the common man.   It’s amazing to see how our entire system of democracy has been hijacked by grifters, con men, predators, parasites, politicians, corporations and the like.   And all of this pathology is directed at exploiting the individual common man, be he(she) a doctor, a teacher, a laborer, a plumber or whatnot.  And that attack is spiritual, emotional and physical.    Serve the corporate state and you can become wildly rich in terms of worldly possessions, title, rank and privilege.    Serve the common man, your own innate human ideals or that which Thomas Paine espoused, and you will almost certainly die financially destitute but rich in your own spiritual and emotional rewards.   Assimilation into the dumbed-down, ignorant corporate state Borg is nearly all-consuming.   And, as such, the ideals that this nation and the entire Age of Enlightenment was founded upon are nearly dead.   Nearly.   Humanity is in recovery and will win this battle. 

Paine was a self-educated common man.   He was not of the aristocracy and not a land owner.   But he saw how the common man, being educated and aware, was capable of making reasoned decisions about his own fate.    Of engaging in reasoned conversation and dialog with others to create a just and decent society for the betterment of all.  Paine completely rejected the notion of the state and class.    He was the leading voice in the pre-Revolutionary War colonies for democratic self-rule.   Thomas Paine was THE tour de force of the American Revolution.  He was clearly the crown jewel of our founding fathers and was probably the only reason for America’s independence.  Literally.    For many years Paine’s voice was the only real revolutionary force outside of religious circles.   And, because of its treasonous content espousing freedom and liberty from the state, Paine published some of his works anonymously.    

Interestingly, on the note of that last sentence, there was a massive movement within many New World religious communities to topple existing state-indoctrinated and state-sponsored religions.   Many of these common people had left Europe in rejection of the tyranny of state taxes used to prop up and enforce state religion and the religious aristocracy that state violence created.  (European state religion still exists in many nations to this day.   And the state still collects mandatory personal taxes on behalf of those religious institutions.)  There were many attempts by the king to extend that religious state tyranny to the colonies.  That included possible efforts to bring the institutionalization of the king’s religion to the colonies.   Some of those rebellious religious New World voices bellowed against the injustices of the comingling of the religious establishment and the state.    Today, in this nation, we see that same comingling in this nation as a status quo religious pathology enriches itself with the alignment and support of state power and its inhumane and violent policies including empire’s endless war, tyranny and aggression.  Well, and as noted in the last post, the state and institutionalized religion’s war against gay people.    Similarly, today we also see many grass roots religious and spiritual awakenings rejecting this comingling of state and religious authority just as happened in pre-Revolutionary War America.  Ironically, one of those voices, although not specific to America, is the current Pope who is giving an honest account of the institutionalized corruption and even outright evil in the Vatican and within state comingled religion in general.  (Amongst other truths the Pope has exposed the global economic and state evil dominating humanity.)  I doubt the Pope will be able to save the Vatican, which is the consummate state religious authority, but he may delay what I see as its possible ultimate demise.  Or maybe he will unwittingly hasten it through his own transparency, decency and honesty.    Anyway, one of  those voices in the New World who we all recognize was the minister who coined the infamous “No taxation without representation”.   That was Reverend Jonathan Mayhew.    A man who eloquently and very popularly argued publicly that it was our duty as sentient and spiritual beings to resist the tyranny of the state. 

For a time Paine was the only famous voice who stated that there was no possible method of amends with Britain and that we must break free of the king and form our own country under democracy.    He was unwavering in his opposition to reconciliation.    (How today’s Greeks need to find their courage in the words of Thomas Paine.   There can be no reconciliation with the undemocratic EU.)  This was a very unpopular position with many of our founders until it became apparent to them that Paine was correct.    No one in history has aroused the common man as Paine did.   Common Sense and the Rights of Man were aimed at the common man and his sensibilities of making his own decisions for his own life and through his own rights, creating his own form of self-government.   It’s hard to measure the impact of Paine’s writings but there is some evidence he produced more pamphlets than there were literate people in the colonies.    His words became wildly popular and his pamphlets were so foundational to uprisings in every monarchy capable of getting their hands on them.   Regardless, it’s quite apparent his writings were the most popular print at that time.   More popular than the best selling book of all time, the Bible.    Who had ever talked to the common man as Paine did?   Who expressed faith in his dignity, his rights and his abilities?   No one.   One can imagine how stirring to the heart Paine was to so many.   He was Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez, Gandhi and Moses all wrapped into one for the masses of people who had lived lives heretofore considered meaningless by the repression and tyranny of aristocracy.    His words were so powerful that England essentially placed him on the terrorist watch list and put a death sentence on his head.   Few people really understand the power of Thomas Paine’s words because they see history through a filtered lens.   A lens filtered created by the state.   No one anywhere in positions of authority really wants the masses to know what Thomas Paine fomented that led to democratic revolution.    As Christopher Hitchens points out, never before in history were the words Rights and Man included in the same sentence.   It was a novel concept for the common man to have rights.  It was novel because the Rights of Man had always been suppressed so that the ruling aristocracy could maintain their authority by living off the economic servitude of the common man to class and the state.

Unlike our dystopian world today where words no longer have meaning, and the play on words by the master manipulators of pathology is used to endlessly deceive, Paine’s words had meaning and consequences for the common person in every nation that got their hands on his writings.   He forcefully argued publicly in his writings, while all other founders attempted appeasement with Britain,  that there was no chance of any reconciliation with England.  

Paine vociferously argued to end the trade of humans, slavery and economic exploitation that was so ingrained in English class-based culture,  its aristocratic corporate and land barons and within the trade and exploitation of humanity that created the massive wealth of the British Empire.   Paine argued that all men should have the right to vote regardless of property ownership or lack thereof, which was a horror to many founding fathers.   Paine wrote of the need for a living wage for all people.   And Paine supported worker’s unions and even tried to form a worker’s union against the tyranny of the state while living under the repressive monarchy in England.   Paine talked about how poverty created by the state was the foundation for what would become a lawless society and this injustice was the basis for crimes that the state so violently sought to suppress through projections of military and police power.  ie, Rather than grant people their economic freedoms, the state used debtor’s prisons, poor houses, prison and ultimately death to enforce the common man’s subjugation to state power.   Paine railed on the massive injustices in England that left incredible poverty and homelessness in the cities and the cruelties of common people laboring on the land that seemingly left those who produced all of the food for the aristocracy with none left for themselves.   Social Security is based solely on Thomas Paine’s writings of Agrarian Justice.  Even the Social Security Administration tells us that on their web site.    In fact, Paine went so far as to say when people in a democracy reached a certain age, he wanted government to give them a lump sum of money to get married or open their own business or whatnot.   His writings were literally read by just about anyone and everyone of common origin who had the ability to read.   And, his words were shared with those who could not read by those who could.   His writings were so widely discussed and shared that today it would be comparable of everyone in this nation who was literate being aware of or having read his polemic rantings against the cruelties of the state.  And, mind you, he was not universally-loved amongst our founders.   He was close to Thomas Jefferson but many of the wealthy founders were very threatened by Paine’s Rights of Man.   Poor people and slaves were meant to serve the wealthy and granting them their own rights was just a little too much for many to support.  

After successfully inciting revolution in the colonies, Paine’s words incited revolution in France and he actually moved there to fuel the uprising against divine rights of monarchs and merchants.   ie, Politicians, corporations, debt-based money and private banks or the tools of state slavery.    Yet Paine was not a rabble rouser or member of the mob.   He believed in civility and decency.     He tried in vain to stop the French mob from its vigilante justice and murdering countless people in kangaroo courts that ultimately destroyed any chance of democracy, and instead, laid the seeds for the rise of the dictator Napoleon.  (After being granted honorary citizenship by the French revolutionaries, he ended up in French prison for of speaking out against vigilantism and violence which was simply stooping to the level of the tyrannical aristocracy the French had just sacked.) 

Back in the New World, Paine wanted a single house of Congress that was “overly-representative” of the people.   (Comparative to the lower House of Commons or our House of Representatives.)   He wrote of the British House of Lords or the upper house (Similar to our Senate) as just another form of aristocratic tyranny.     He wanted the people’s voice to have greater power than the executive branch that could (and actually has) become a monarchy in this nation.   Something Jefferson noted when he actually accused the Washington administration and Alexander Hamilton’s economic policies as setting up a monarchy in Washington.    And he wanted judges to be elected rather than appointed by political privilege.  

The English crown essentially stated that Paine was to be hanged if he ever returned to his home country.   Interestingly, according to Paine’s own words, they burned effigies of him all over England.   I find this one fact to be incredibly amusing as today the common man, be he college educated or high school dropout, is still manipulated by the state into believing who their enemy is.   Again we burn effigies of who our modern day monarchs and merchants brainwash us into believing is our enemy.   And we fight the aristocracy’s wars against the common man in other nations be they economic or military or otherwise.   But it was Paine who so presciently wrote the enemy is not the common man but is the state itself.   While revolution never came to England, much of the rights and reforms that happened for the next hundred years in England were because of Paine’s writings.    

In many regards, Thomas Paine was the American Revolution and was the revolution all across the western world for the rights of the common man.   Without any doubts, there would have never been an American Revolutionary War and, thus, possibly no other western revolution towards greater human rights without the support of the common man.   There never has been and there never will be progress for human rights without him and her. 

Isn’t it ironic to see the endless propaganda of power and authority in this nation and around the world has shit all over the ideals of who may be the main person responsible for the founding of this nation?  For literally without the power and meaning of Paine’s words spread to every corner of the colonies, there would have been no possibility of the common man supporting independence.     Thomas Paine is the poster child for why the state has book burnings.   And we certainly have plenty of our own figurative book burnings in the modern world created by the state.    In fact, through the tyrannical actions and usurpations of the state, they have figuratively burned the contents of Common Sense and The Rights of Man many times over.   And the most obvious example of that is the absolute failure of our educational system that has left the masses substantially illiterate.   This is no coincidence.   This is a modern form of book burning (attempts at keeping the common man ignorant to state authority)  that is no different than what the Nazis or the British Empire did.     

Is there anyone in Washington who espouses the ideals of Thomas Paine?   Personally, I would say no without any equivocation.  No one within any political party could qualify.   For they only got to where they are by serving party ideology in lieu of the Rights of Man.    The closest I surmise  may be the flawed but seemingly genuine Bernie Sanders.   All I see are the antithesis of Paine’s ideals of a society where the common man is his own king and able to determine his own fate and the fate of his community and his nation, be they college-educated or high school dropout or be that genius or simple man.   Our masters do not want this.  And they clearly suppress the rights and freedoms of the common man.  

There is so much about the times of the American Revolution and the Age of Enlightenment that has been suppressed or written out of history by the state.  Like people rising up to grab land from the aristocratic land owners in the colonies or forced renters rebelling against aristocratic landlords.   Or, the endless war that left Britain massively indebted to private banks.    Or the massive addictions, homelessness and poverty that corporate capitalism created in Britain.    Or, the massive power grabs with greater and greater rules of violence and force in the colonies created by the state.    Or, the attempts to raise taxes through the roof on colonists in order to pay for endless state profligacy.   Or, the intrusions of the king’s police force, the British Army, into people’s homes and lives in the colonies.   Or the forced use of the king’s private, debt-based money to enslave the colonies into debt servitude that enriched the economic aristocracy.   Sound familiar?  

It was the common man who really provided the impetus for revolutionary change.  Because it is the common man who is exploited by the aristocracy and the state.   That is how class (the state) actually maintains its grip on humanity.    Today we see the common man is once again yearning to have their voice heard.   250 years ago it was Thomas Paine who gave them their voice.   2,500 years ago it was Pericles.   Who shall it be today?  We shall see.  But in many regards, with the advent of instantaneous communications and the Internet connecting all of us into virtual communities around the world,  the world is in the midst of a leaderless revolution of the common man.   And, in a world where the common man is born with inalienable rights, that is as it should be.   A leaderless, classless revolution to reclaim his rights.   Is that what we witness from the common man today?

The state has obliterated the founding ideals of this nation.  It has worked for the last two hundred years to destroy any semblance of the Rights of Man and Common Sense for the masses.    The common man has no voice in this nation regardless of political party.   Or, maybe I should say the common man has no voice because of political parties.   The state has attacked everything Paine stood for and in some manner or fashion has worked over decades and centuries to destroy all of those ideals.   The question is why?   The answer is obvious.   Because evil covets that which we all have.   And it does so by controlling us to loot our wit and our labor to maintain their authoritarian  pathology – “Woe to him that coveteth to build his house (power, wealth and authority) through unjust gain.”

Here are the complete writings of Thomas Paine by Project Gutenberg.   Although they actually aren’t the complete writings.   Paine was a prolific writer and most of his writings were lost by accident.    Paine fled England where he was to be tried for sedition and hanged by the king for actually speaking out against the cruelties and injustices of England.  I am not sure anyone really knows what all he wrote while in England but one thing he did write was the Case of the Excise Officers in 1772.
