Title changed too, obviously. Choosing Honor is definitely better.
I would have never believed back in 2008 when I was racing to publish before the market crashed that the march on into authoritarian consolidation of assets would carry on no matter how much truth was exposed. Hubris on my part. Though, I was so pleased to see Roger Waters standing up recently.
I recently heard Waters says one must stand up!!!! Pay Attention folks stand up for what you believe in, be willing to lose all and we will gain all. All is all and we, you and I are all. Love and blessings, we can harmonize the world to be the world we want it to be.
There is bitter partisanship, increasingly Orwellian attempts to control the mainstream and social media narratives, the debauchery of “expertise” as dueling “experts” vie for control, the fraying of social discourse, the substitution of virtue-signaling for actual civic virtue, the institutionalization of white-collar crime (collusion, fraud, embezzlement, etc.), the increasing reliance on Bread and Circuses (stimulus, Universal Basic Income) as real opportunity dissipates, and the troubling rise in shootings, crime, random violence and plummeting social prosperity.
“This unraveling of social cohesion has consequences. Once social cohesion unravels, the nation unravels.“
This quote comes from a blog, “The Systemic Risk No One Sees, June 30, 2021, by Charles Hugh Smith. The solutions are not readily evident, yet one thing is for sure, each and every one of us needs to stand for the good of all in the face of forces that we have no control over. How each and every one of us chooses to do this is an infinite variance. Start with being here now and using your spending power to affect change. Be the change you want to see in the world. Money is the magic wand being used to harness society. As you well know, unless you are living under a rock, right now the rising money supply is inflating the price of everything. Protect yourself, your family and community. We are all in this together. Get ready for when the loss of spending power triggers a sell off of assets and major disruptions occur. It’s happened before and it is happening again.
May loving good vibrations rise to the global fore. I pray. Jubilee.
This testimonial of events at Evergreen College in Washington State is extremely important on the freedom vs authoritarian rule front. The events at Evergreen pushed a tenured professor, Bret Weinstein, off campus, out of a job and into the public discourse. Weinstein’s loss of a job is indicative of a canary dying in a the coal mine that is freedom in the United States. The thinking that forced Weinstein out of his job is Bernays psychology in insidious form. Group think.
Most insidious is Weinstein’s experience of the difference in meaning behind the use of the word “safespace.” This “doublespeak” embodied in one word is indicative of a very dangerous authoritarian wave of zeitgeist that is driving wild “tribalism” in our society today. Tribalism that ranks on a level of events found in the book Lord of the Flies. This screams to me that Piggy is going to die, and it isn’t the Piggy one would think it will be.
In my humble opinion, if the public as a whole does not evolve into free independent critical thinkers who question authority with truly open eyes awake to changes in our system being forwarded it is going to find itself “fooled again.” How we improve and or destroy the fair equitable lives of all life is on us all and mankind is at a crossroads.
Bret Weinstein Testifies to Congress on The Evergreen State College riots, Free Speech & Safe Spaces
The thinking at work, Weinstein says, is a “tearing down” ripping society apart without offering solutions. The thinking BLM and the Woke movements are putting forward will not “finish the project” that is the West. We already have the right societal base of values in the focus on liberty in the West. After all the only way to be truly liberated is to address all the issues that infringe on liberty and in so correcting them further the cause of liberty in society. The original call of a liberty movement is to make sure that distribution of opportunity and distribution of resources is fair, you can not have that if free speech is not protected.
Our Mainstream News Media support the intelligence community, fools or magicians? They are mute on defending Assange or Snowden, two fools who should be revered magicians. Matt Tabbi sums up the press’ failure to speak for the public defense in this recent article: https://taibbi.substack.com/p/reporters-once-challenged-the-spy-a32 Tabbi points out that financial corporations are complicit in working with the press and the Global Intelligence community to expose any radical thinking activists. We are not talking terrorists, we are talking about whistleblowers here.
This week retired military officers have banned together in a letter to President Biden that insists he is endangering our Constitutional Republic. https://foreignpolicy.com/2021/05/12/joe-biden-military-revolt-liz-cheney/ These men are derided as extremists who are defying their mandate to submit to civilian authority. Yet, doesn’t their oath to the rule of law enshrined in the Constitution overrule all authority in the United States? In a right side up United States Assange and Snowden should be revered magicians who saved our freedoms.
The entire year of Covid mandates have over ruled all previous self-sovereignty precedents in our nation and have revealed very disturbing realities about the way our government is operating. https://off-guardian.org/2021/05/11/10-things-we-have-learned-during-the-covid-coup/ Not for the good of we the people so much as the good of the ruling corporate billionaire oligarchs is the M.O. of our government. Not new, but never so blatant before, maybe there just weren’t as many awake citizens last century, this century World War as a solution has failed to materialize. This doesn’t mean the same stakes aren’t on the table.
Trump was the “Fuck you” vote, Biden is the last of the globalist economic hitmen. Proof of Biden’s status is in the millions his son has reaped sitting on the made millionaire boards of countries our corporate oligarchs have co-opted. If you are not familiar with the M.O. of US Economic Hitmen start with John Perkin’s book, Confessions of an Economic Hitman. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confessions_of_an_Economic_Hit_Man Can we say that either of these men are standing for the good of all? Trump allowed the murder of Washington Post reporter, Jamal Khashoggi, at the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul to go unpunished without comment. So who are the good guys? Who are the magicians, who are the fools?
History has shown us that authoritarian “magicians” always become fools. Authoritarian globalists will lose, they will be unmasked. Let’s just hope it is sooner rather than later. Stay strong, stay free and keep searching for truth. It is out there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWzrABouyeE
Nazi gold valued at half a billion pounds is going to be dug up. This gold was hidden by Head of the SS, Himmler, and his fellow members of an ancient lodge to later fund the rise of the Fourth Reich. “It is thought to include the so-called ‘Gold of Breslau’ which went missing from police headquarters in what is now the nearby Polish city of Wrocław.
It is also thought to include jewellery and valuables from the private collections of wealthy Germans who lived in the region and who handed their possessions to the SS in order to protect them from being looted by the advancing Red Army.
The location was revealed by secret documents, an SS officer’s diary and a map that the treasure hunters received from the descendants of officers belonging to a secretive lodge dating back over 1,000 years.”
WTF. That is all I can say. The Treasure Hunters on the trail of this mother lode of gold are digging under a palace in Poland that was used by the SS as a brothel when they occupied the territory. One of the “girls” hid it for her man, SS officer von Stein.
You can’t make this stuff up. Good night and good luck.
Pay Attention. Question Authority. Do your own research.
The rush to publish warnings in 2008 was shared by myself and author Naomi Wolf. I discovered, The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot, by Wolf while on the book circuit while I was promoting my book, Choosing Honor. Our books shared floor space, if not the same booth shelves. We both called out to readers to pay attention or we, the people of the United States, would lose our Republic, our individual sovereignty and most of our freedoms.
In truth, our warnings had begun to hit the mainstream earlier, the 2005 film, V For Vendetta is proving more and more prophetic in a creepy Covid way. The Science Fiction warnings about how Totalitarian Dictatorships rise to power with the full support and actions of the population willingly following dominate the last century. Health crisis gives plausible reason for inflicting lock downs on innocent people, it is “for the good of all.”
The good of all, is honor. This honor quickly crosses moral and ethical lines when put into place by “might.” Right through might becomes a morally and ethically nebulous line of action. The “good of all” put into place by authoritarian might within occupations and or when facing survival is conditioned into human behavior. Milgram studies continue to demonstrate that all it takes to get good people to inflict horrifying physical pain on an innocent other is for authority to tell us that we will not get into trouble as long as we are following orders, doing our job which is for good and that the victim signed up for it, asked for it. Subtext, you will not question evil if your way of living depends on you supporting the evil.
No one can doubt that this psychological message is well known and validated repeatedly by many well informed journalists, authors, Matt Taibbi, Chris Hedges, and Greg Greenwald, to name a few. You would think with all the great independent work out trying to keep free thinking independent people aware, the Republic would be standing strong. It isn’t. Covid took the legs of truth, justice, free economies and democracy right out from under the Republic of the United States of America. Underscoring this reality, Naomi Wolf has revisited the list of markers for Fascist take over of a population that she delivers in her book,”End of America.” What she has found is that we are much further along the list, in fact in the midst of complete subjugation today.
Pay attention. Remember a nation can only succumb to a dictator if people will do as directed. Question authority, maintain personal sovereignty and realize today we do not face one dictator, as Germany did last Century. Today we face a global oligarchy of corporate dictators. How you spend your money will dictate the outcome of the authoritarian reconfiguration, reset of our lives. What we choose to do with “orders” is in our hands, the power is in the hands of the people if we want it.
While the health crisis is improving and “ongoing vaccinations offer hope for a return to more normal conditions later this year,” Powell said, “the path of the economy continues to depend significantly on the course of the virus and the measures taken to control its spread.” Our current Money Power Chairman testified to the Senate today.
These words are innocuous taken at face value. I tend to be one that is always looking for a mask when it comes to the face of the Money Power. In this case, a chill runs down my spine at what is masked. In no small part this chill is enhanced by the fact that the Weimar Republic is being mentioned in far right monetary newsletters again. https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/bofa-hints-weimar-20-could-be-coming In light of the mid-century monetary military madness this Republic symbolizes and unleashed, the words, “The measures taken to control its spread,” take me to the darkest measures mankind is capable of. The virus induced social control measures will dictate the state of the economy says the man at the controls. Make no mistake Covid-19 is fulfilling the economic role of war, regardless if it is nature or mankind induced.
War economically reconfigures. Covid-19 has often been referred to as the great reset. https://www.weforum.org/great-reset/ We live in a fractal reality, our economy is a confidence game. Confidence is going to dictate how we act. And if we the people of the United States are going to have any hope of hanging onto the United States of America as intended by our founders we need to stay out of debt, bank in local community banks or credit unions and buy local, support small businesses. Corporations and “too big to fail banks” are parasites Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton clashed over this reality. Hamilton called Jefferson’s “people” a beast that needed to be harnessed. Early last century this harness was re-coined as a “cross of gold.” Fiat money will flow in the coming year, it is up to us to direct it into the directions we want to see thrive in our communities. Money is our magic wand, invest wisely. If we do we can control the “popsicle index” of our lives. https://home.solari.com/the-popsicle-index/
Oh my. Pay attention=God’s Will. Love. Harmonize. Know. Choose honor, stand for the good of all in the face of the powerless in your sphere of influence. This can be done. Do it and the good you put out will come back with more of the same.
Be the change you want to see in the world!
Somehow I think what is happening today was meant to happen in 2008. Just sayin. We the people are going to have to kick some common sense into the actions on the ground today. Not sure what comes next, but we have a right to a good and decent main street.
How can you act for the good of all in your day? Think on it when you pause.
