- America as a concept presents a uniquely contradictory
set of principles that has never been openly discussed; because our 'history'
has largely remained secret, even from most of our own people.
- "For a hundred years the enslaved had been trapped
in a brutal system, resistance was always dangerous. At the outbreak of
the American Revolution, 'Liberty' was in the air. But Black people both
enslaved and free learned that for their voices to be heard, they would
have to ignite their own freedom struggle. A hundred years after the first
Africans arrived, most colonies were heavily dependent upon slave labor.
By 1750, a quarter million enslaved blacks now made vast wealth possible
for their masters. 'Slavery, it seems to me was an extrodinary goose that
laid the Golden Egg.' You had workers that you didn't have to pay and you
owned their children as soon as they were born; it's a preposterous system.
[Yet to survive slaves learned to dance the dance of domination and subordination]
- By 1775 the American Revolution had begun and some half-million
or one in five people were of African dissent, most were enslaved; some
were free, a few even owned slaves themselves. As the situation deteriorated
black people in America faced a new challenge; how to make their voices
heard in the new cacophony for liberty. When position papers were written
demanding rights for the colonists, the Africans noted that phrases like
"Every citizen was entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness"
were being used by the colonists against the crown. Revolution and the
rhetoric of Liberty were in the air.
- The growing resistance of the colonists against taxation
and control produced phases such as "the natural liberty of man is
to be free." By 1776 the language of 'natural rights' began to flow
throughout the colonies. "All men by nature are by naturally free
and equal" these words were promoted in pamphlets throughout the colonies,
and slaves became aware of these contradictions in terms. The patriots
said: "We will not be the slaves of England, they don't say "we
will not be the second class citizens they don't say we will not be the
oppressed people they say we will not be "the slaves."
When people who hold slaves say 'we will not be slaves' you know that they
know what they're talking about. And African Americans were quick
to say we will not be the slaves of England nor will we be the slaves of
- Thomas Jefferson wrote: "We hold these truths to
be self-evident, and that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit
of happiness." In some ways Thomas Jefferson is in some ways so like
America itself. Thomas Jefferson expresses opinions in the Declaration
of Independence that are wonderful examples of fairness, of a belief in
human dignity and freedom, yet Thomas Jefferson is so contradictory because
the man who writes the Declaration of Independence is the man who holds
at one point holds almost two-hundred and fifty slaves or more. The country
that says to the world that we bring ourselves into existence on the principle
of human freedom is the country that is in many ways founded on the principles
of human slavery." (1)
- This contradictory basis has haunted America since long
before our formal beginnings, and is still a major problem that lingers
at the heart of everything we have become. Of course the plight of the
native populations here was yet another total contradiction patterned along
the lines of what is still happening in Palestine and everywhere else we
have sent in storm-troopers to terrorize and occupy the local natives of
other countries that we have decided to takeover.
- Basically these slave owners in this country, that were
largely descendents of the European aristocracy of the Old World; which
at that time did not view women, as a population, or as people with anything
like the full rights of free people-despite the fact that women make up
more than half the world. Consequently with these facts in mind; what the
original Declaration of Independence really stood for was quite different
from how we would like to see that document today.
- Beyond this particular aspect of the current problems
we must confront now there is something even more alarming: That is the
way that most people have ordered their own lives; and in that process
there has been much of what people need to know that has never come into
their own minds or their hearts. This anomaly has been codified by the
late Don Harkins.
- "Behind the first veil: There are over six billion
people on the planet. Most of them live and die without having seriously
contemplated anything other than what it takes to keep their lives together.
Ninety percent of all humanity will live and die without having pierced
the first veil.
- The first veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the first
veil and find the world of politics. We will vote, be active and have an
opinion. Our opinions are shaped by the physical world around us; we have
a tendency to accept that government officials, network media personalities
and other "experts" are voices of authority. Ninety percent of
the people in this group will live and die without having pierced the second
- The second veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the second
veil to explore the world of history, the relationship between man and
government and the meaning of self-government through constitutional and
common law. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die
without having pierced the third veil.
- The third veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the third
veil to find that the resources of the world, including people, are controlled
by extremely wealthy and powerful families whose incorporated old world
assets have, with modern extortion strategies, become the foundation upon
which the world's economy is currently indebted. Ninety percent of the
people in this group will live and die without having pierced the fourth
- The fourth veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the fourth
veil to discover the Illuminati, Freemasonry and the other secret societies.
These societies use symbols and perform ceremonies that perpetuate the
generational transfers of arcane knowledge that is used to keep the ordinary
people in political, economic and spiritual bondage to the oldest bloodlines
on earth. Ninety percent of the people in this group will live and die
without having pierced the fifth veil.
- The fifth veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the fifth
veil to learn that the secret societies are so far advanced technologically
that time travel and interstellar communications have no boundaries and
controlling the actions of people is what their members do as offhandedly
as we tell our children when they must go to bed. Ninety percent of the
people in this group will live and die without having pierced the sixth
- The sixth veil: Ten percent of us will pierce the sixth
veil where the dragons and lizards and aliens we thought were the fictional
monsters of childhood literature are real and are the controlling forces
behind the secret societies. Ninety percent of the people in this group
will live and die without piercing the seventh veil.
- The seventh veil: I do not know what is behind the seventh
veil. I think it is where your soul is evolved to the point you can exist
on earth and be the man Gandhi was, or the woman Peace Pilgrim was-people
so enlightened they brighten the world around them no matter what.
- The eighth veil? Piercing the eighth veil probably reveals
God and the pure energy that is the life force in all living things-which
are, I think, one and the same.
- If my math is accurate there are only about 60,000 people
on the planet who have pierced the sixth veil. The irony here is too incredible:
Those who are stuck behind veils one through five have little choice but
to view the people who have pierced the veils beyond them as insane. With
each veil pierced, exponentially shrinking numbers of increasingly enlightened
people are deemed insane by exponentially increasing masses of decreasingly
- Adding to the irony, the harder a "sixth or better
veil" tries to explain what he is able to see to those who can't,
the more insane he appears to them.
- Our enemy, the state.
- Behind the first two veils we find the great majority
of people on the planet. They are tools of the state: Second veilers are
the gullible voters whose ignorance justify the actions of politicians
who send first veilers off to die in foreign lands as cannon fodder --
their combined stations in life are to believe that the self-serving machinations
of the power-elite are matters of national security worth dying for.
- Third, fourth, fifth and sixth veilers are of increasing
liability to the state because of their decreasing ability to be used as
tools to consolidate power and wealth of the many into the hands of the
power-elite. It is common for these people to sacrifice more of their relationships
with friends and family, their professional careers and personal freedom
with each veil they pierce.
- Albert Jay Nock (1870-1945), author of "Our Enemy,
the State" (1935), explained what happens to those who find the seventh
and eighth veils: "What was the best that the state could find to
do with an actual Socrates and an actual Jesus when it had them? Merely
to poison one and crucify the other, for no reason but that they were too
intolerably embarrassing to be allowed to live any longer."
- And so now we know that it's not that our countrymen
are so committed to their lives that, "they don't want to see,"
the mechanisms of their enslavement and exploitation. They simply "can't
see" it as surely as I cannot see what's on the other side of a closed
- The purpose of this essay is threefold: To help the handful
of people in the latter veils to understand why the masses have little
choice but to interpret their clarity as insanity; 2. To help people behind
the first two veils understand that living, breathing and thinking are
just the beginning and; 3. Show people that the greatest adventure of our
life is behind the next veil because that is just one less veil between
ourselves and God." (2)
- These contradictions and omissions have combined to allow
this country to alter the governance of the nation from a Republic to an
Apocalyptic Dictatorship that is false to its very core. History and a
real knowledge of it, is what makes this charge against our own past so
damning.We are no different that those who came here in chains; unless
we demand what is ours by right of birth that cannot be modified or taken
from us for the convenience of the few at the expense of the many!
