- "What will become of human beings?"
- "Many say they want to change the world, when what
they mean is that they want the world to change without taking any personal
direct-action to affect the necessary major shift in the global focus.
Ask yourself how many wars were there in the last century; or for that
matter in this century as well? How many Genocides, how many disasters
have continued to go unanswered? 'Are we really capable of learning from
'grace' or 'beauty' or from what we call god?' Do we learn from real innovations
brought about by individuals rather than from privatized-corporate schemes;
or do we learn anything at all from the barrels of so many guns or from
the dropping of so many millions of tons of bombs and phosphorus on unarmed
- In society people deal with each other based upon reputations
and trust as a key to whatever is being considered whether the topic is
business or personal. When people are lied to, routinely, by the same people
whether in government or in private life; then those people can no longer
be considered to be reliable parts of ones' life-if and only if the life
being affected is considered to be an authentic endeavor. What has happened
now, because of all the official lies and public-deceptions, is that virtually
anyone in authority has to be considered as an enemy of those people that
they supposedly "serve." Every statement that this government
issues ought to be met with the simple phrase "prove it!"
- The principles by which we all must live have not just
been ignored; those principles have been methodically under a concerted
and long-planned-for attack that is and was designed to destroy the ability
of ordinary people to have any control over their individual lives. Do
the math: How many hours are left in your day, after you have gone to work,
put up with that tyranny and then undertaken the trek home, only to try
and squeeze any joy out of the few remaining hours before you have to do
it all over again? There is "no time" remaining for people to
even laugh much less to contemplate any of the much larger forces that
are shaping everything we think or see or attempt to do with our lives.
This prison without bars was not an accident: It is the planned outcome
that continues to diminish any chance for any real change in the course
or direction of our lives. The first casualty in that battle was the successful
destruction of our ability to think or to concentrate on anything of substance.
- "(Here) are two verdicts from a pair of recent research
projects respectively, the Poynter Institute's Eyetrack survey, and
analysis by Jakob Nielsen which both suggest that many of us no longer
have the concentration to read articles through to their conclusion.
- The problem doesn't just stop there: academics report
that we are becoming less attentive book-readers, too. Bath Spa University
lecturer Greg Garrard recently revealed that he has had to shorten his
students' reading list, while Keith Thomas, an Oxford historian, has written
that he isbemused by junior colleagues who analyze sources with a search
engine, instead of reading them in their entirety.
- So are we getting stupider? Is that what this is about?
Sort of. According to The Shallows, a new book by technology sage Nicholas
Carr, our hyperactive online habits are damaging the mental faculties we
need to process and understand lengthy textual information. Round-the-clock
news feeds leave us hyperlinking from one article to the next without
necessarily engaging fully with any of the content; our reading is frequently
interrupted by the ping of the latest email; and we are now absorbing short
bursts of words on Twitter and Facebook more regularly than longer texts."(2)
- When government force is used to destroy the realities
of the human condition that would normally prevent people from rejecting
whatever is being done 'in our names,' then that crime becomes the vehicle
by which no criminal act will result in charges or penalties when the crimes
are committed by those in power. So long as no one is ever charged, no
one will ever go to jail for any of the massive crimes in which this country
has not just been 'a party to' but in which they have been one of the original
instigating powers that profits directly from and continues to use these
crimes to buttress and enable the creation of future crimes as well. The
public can be charged with "thought-crimes" yet the government
is never charged with treason against us? None of this will change until
the public is forced to face the openly criminal past that this country
has openly-embraced since the beginning of this 'new millennium.' The Package-of-Lies
that has become known as "911" has been used a billion-times
over to create everything that is now hard at work to destroy everything
that any viable society needs to ensure its own survival.
- These overwhelming forces of government and privatized
corporate power coupled with militarized-policing, privatized and illegal-force
and greed have cobbled together a total fiction which attempts to convince
the public that "resistance is futile," yet this too is nothing
but a lie!
- Obviously ordinary people cannot openly 'fight' their
legions of lawyers and corrupted officials that serve the new world order.
We can however resist the falsely created-realities on the ground when
it comes to their literal implementation of their criminal takeover of
virtually everything in this country. All that remains for this to become
apparent-is the crossing of the last line in the blood-stained and oil-soaked
sand that will happen when the Hurricane season opens with a vengeance.
It is one thing to send our troops to destroy and destabilize other nations;
it is something completely other to attempt to do the same thing to this
nation and to the people that gave birth to those same 'warriors' that
we sent in to wreck other nations by our assumed right of 'Manifest Destiny.'
- When the homelessness and the starvation, not-to-mention
the torture of American families takes center stage under the guns of an
occupying force then, and perhaps only then, will there be the revolt within
theUS military that many have been waiting over-long to see.
- For the US government to have designed this plan to criminalize
most American citizens, while at the same time they economically set out
starve us into complete surrender is obscene! Just as they planned to use
our own troops to shut down the society that paid for this entire coup
which has destroyed everything to date that is vital in the United States
to 'life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness,' which only added farce
to criminality. The arrogant cynicism inherent in this attempt alone, beggars
the imagination of anyone that even tries to consider that a betrayal of
this magnitude, just might be true. This seeming impossibility is what
has kept the public from open rebellion since government began to try and
complete what they undertook when they openly stole the White House on
- Consider how much it costs to mount these privatized-military-exercises
against the restive public whenever there is a major event. In Toronto
the costs for three days of beating the hell out of the pubic at the G-20,
exceeded two billion dollars. But if martial law is implemented that would
require the same level of force in every major city in this country, 24-7,
365 days of the year. There are not nearly enough people employed by this
fascist police state to even begin to deploy such a force, much less to
maintain their activities for more than a few days anywhere: especially
once the public becomes enraged at the levels of abuse and personal loss
that the public will very soon be expected to endure; just because the
government says that "we must!"
- Remember please that we have not won a foreign war anywhere
since WWII, and that 'victory' was only a technicality (because we ended
up losing the so-called peace which WWII established). We have now been
"at war" inside Iraq for nearly twenty years; and yet we cannot
win even that aggression, against a nation about the size of California,
which we launched back in 1991: So how can these same forces be expected
to fare against the most heavily armed population on the planet; especially
when we remember that the people those forces will be fighting will be
our own people?
- Where will the weapons and supplies come from to maintain
such self-annihilating policies; especially given all the deceit and the
self-serving constructs that supposedly underpin this farce? These occupying
troops will have to eat and sleep here, not to mention the fact that the
family homes they will be invading might well be their own homes? To actually
believe that by issuing a state of Martial Law that somehow everyone involved
from troops to citizens will suddenly forget that families will be torn
apart along with whole areas of the nation that will be totally destroyed
for nothing but another pack of lies this is absolute insanity incarnate!
- For the last ten years these soulless monsters have been
running this dog & pony show with the near total complicity of all
our so-called "institutions of society and government" in lock-step
agreement; with only the general public in direct opposition to everything
they have undertake to do. Now because we have remained silent they believe
they have won what they needed to finish the job. But just as 'pride goes
before every fall' they are intensifying their crimes accordingly. Now
government is seeking to revise social security and the taxes that were
collected for decades, while retroactively revising the promised payouts
to those who worked their whole lives, with no choice except to provide
that benefit, by government edict, to themselves: Even though no change
in that contract is needed or even will be, for several more decades.
- "The attacks on Social Security have steadily intensified
in the past few months. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer recently called
for a higher retirement age and House Minority leader John Boehner suggested
raising the retirement age to 70. Meanwhile, President Obama's bipartisan
18-member commission dealing with the nation's public debt is due to come
out with a report in November that is expected to recommend cuts to Social
Security. We speak with Dean Baker of the Center for Economic and Policy
- What has been clear throughout these thousands of years
in this struggle between privatization and publicly owned public services
is not something that can be tolerated by any 'free-people," because
in the end people must maintain control over the essentials of their own
lives if there is to be any choice available when it comes to how we live
our individual lives!
- These incompetent criminals cannot possibly win against
an aroused public, and if they are dumb enough to try and do this, despite
the facts then they will lose-but because of the concomitant destruction,
we shall all lose most of what remains of this world-if we allow this fight
to enter the coming phase of new and ever-more deadly wars upon everything
from nature to mankind itself.
- The people that did these crimes must be charged with
their crimes and imprisoned. Their assets must be seized and used to correct
some of the massive problems which they have caused to be created: Because
if we allow this treason to move to the next level then there shall be
virtually nothing left to save because we cannot escape the fact that 'Broken
Promises create Broken lives and Broken People.'
