Consciousness and The Age of Nations

It is pretty much clear that the U.S. is no longer a democracy. This has been obvious for over twenty-five years, but we have to wait until the scholars and scientists tell us so. Sadly, we no longer think for ourselves, nor do we claim the authority to make decisions or proclamations of any sort. Most people just wait to be told what to think or say. People also wait for permission to do anything. Certainly, most people don’t believe they can do anything about government…and government loves this attitude of submissiveness because it makes them feel powerful, but there are unseen outcomes for both sides.

When people don’t believe they can do anything, they stop caring. And so, in many minds, it is not our problem if the government doesn’t have enough money to function. Government doesn’t listen to the people, so why should the people listen to government? Government responds by cutting benefits and spending.  The idea that we should be content with less is their idea, not ours. The idea that we must curb spending is a projection of their consciousness onto us. They project it because it’s something they fear greatly. But here again, government doesn’t seem to get it. People want to spend less money. They want to reduce the waste, the junk, the debt, and the stuff they have. Where people get confused is when the conversation about cutting costs is focused so heavily on health care and welfare.

The statement has been passed around that “those who use government services should contribute toward their cost.” This is one of those illuminating statements that reveal two truths. First, that politicians no longer have an image of themselves as leaders of a nation and now see themselves as directors of a gigantic nursing home. We HAVE been contributing – deductions for federal taxes, social security, Medicare, state taxes, property taxes, sales taxes, you-name-it taxes. Second, the government has not been spending our money on us, they’ve been spending it elsewhere and then borrowing money when they have to do something for us. They didn’t tell us they were doing this, and we trusted them, so they decided we were stupid. Now that government has metastasized into areas of life that have nothing to do with governance, it is stuck with its own perceptual legacy – that of thinking we are stupid, useless people who don’t understand what is happening.

We understand. We may be happy to take a handout when it is offered, and we may hope it keeps coming, but we aren’t stupid. When the handout stops and the truth becomes known, we will go elsewhere for what we want and need. Yes, some of us can be manipulated. Some can be fooled. But the huge majority were not born yesterday, thus, when we turn away, the gig is up.

Politicians act like the game they are playing today is going to last forever. But every move changes every outcome. To raise taxes or cut wages and government spending impoverishes the people. When the people are impoverished, they look elsewhere and do something different in order to survive. When the people can no longer pay taxes, it impoverishes the government. Worse, when the truth becomes known, government has no integrity. When the government is impoverished and without integrity, it has very limited power. Without money, integrity, or power, government will be ignored.

However, there exists a singular law of consciousness that says that for anything to survive, it must have attention. Infants and baby animals die without it. Businesses go bankrupt without it. Education fails utterly without it. Agriculture cannot produce without it. Transportation becomes tragedy without it. Communication falls flat without it. And a government that is ignored will pass away and become a thing of the past. Politicians may talk about cutting budgets, slashing benefits, or closing the door on the “age of entitlement,” but the door that is closing is the age of nations.

Can You See Where the U.S. Is Headed?

It is happening in Syria, in Egypt, Libya, Sudan, the Central African Republic, Venezuela, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, Ethiopia, Somalia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Malaysia, the U.S.S.R., Greece, Crete, Ukraine, and lots of other places.

What’s happening is the intervention of “hidden forces” that are designed to take out the leadership, get control of the money, take over the natural resources…and along the way, sow the seeds of discontent and distrust that will lead eventually to a break-up of stable relationships among the people…and eventually to a break-up of the entire nation..

The financial system of the U.S. was captured long ago, we have the most powerful military tools in the world, and we have long been under the control of hidden powerbrokers. So why would the U.S. break up?

If you were trying to rule the world, it would be very difficult to maintain control when there are huge countries with massive numbers of men and machines that could defy you or ignore your directives. The long term plan would have to include the objective of first getting control of those countries, and then breaking them up so that no one has the physical capacity to resist or wrest control away from you.

With both military and financial power, you would have the basic tools you need to create chaos and uproar in the big players, then let your seeds of disruption unfold. The risk of failure would be enormous, but the allure of the payoff – if successful – would be worth it. You could then say, “I rule the world!”

The military and financial power of the U.S. would be quite useful to anyone who is pulling strings from a hidden position off-stage. Once most other countries are in chaos or have been broken up, however,  the U.S. structural façade would no longer be needed and it would be our turn to be split.

How to accomplish the break-up? Foment unrest in an area by pitting factions against one another to the point that all cohesiveness breaks down… create a financial debacle and then blame it specifically on the idea that the territory or organization was too big, too powerful, too corrupt, or too unwieldy to manage and thus ought to be broken up… create or allow a disaster to occur that disrupts a region completely and forces people into other places where they have no roots, no jobs,  and no support, and then make new laws or decisions about property while they are too distracted to deal with anything other than survival.

When I look at the big picture, if things continue to unfold as they are now, it all points toward the breakup of the U.S. into much smaller units in the not-too-distant future.

Ukraine’s Gold Flown to NY Fed?

My, my! Imagine that! Another step in the state capture process in Ukraine completed! This was the headline of a recent NSNBC International article:

Ukraine’s Gold Reserves Secretly Flown Out and Confiscated by the New York Federal Reserve?

It’s a brief article.

PS – The news site is typed correctly –  NSNBC. It’s an independent news source, not state sponsored like US media, or even Russia Today, which is sponsored by Russia.

The 10-Step Program for State Capture

We have just had a textbook example of “state capture” demonstrated in Ukraine. Just in case you don’t know what the steps are, here’s a quick outline:

1. Send in undercover agents to find unhappy, power-hungry, ruthless people willing to create a ruckus, then promise them positions of power if they will help topple the current government.

2. Begin sending them guns, money, and agents to help make chaos until the government falls.

3. Quickly empty the government coffers using Promis software to transfer it via satellite to hidden accounts.

4. Blame the toppled government for taking the money.

5. Tell the people they have been robbed and must either undergo a period of severe ‘austerity’ or, if they are cooperative, accept a loan.

6. Bring in the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to make a big loan, with interest.

7. Set up a ‘democracy’ with ‘elections’ that can be manipulated.

8. Institute capitalism – a system that involves a process of shoveling money up the pyramid to the guy at the top.

9. Ensure that the former governmental leaders won’t be reconsidered for power by accusing them of homosexuality, lavish living, legal impropriety, or other things that seek to make them look illegitimate and unworthy.

10. Carry on a media campaign that presents nothing but propaganda, falsehoods, and bias.

That’s it! You’re done! You have people in power who will do your bidding, the country’s financial system is under your control, you have elections under your control, and voila! you help yourself to the natural resources the country has, make business decision that favor you and bankrupt them, and maybe have gained a strategic position in terms of war or shipping. A bonus would be that it also forms a cover for something else that you’re trying to get away with!

George W

As many of my family and friends know, I was seriously upset by the 9/11 bombings of the trade center in New York, and I was NOT in favor of the war in Iraq. I knew the “weapons of mass destruction” claim was fabricated, and I was insulted by U.S. President George W. Bush’s statement:  “Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.”  I happened to be reminded about this statement today, and was irritated all over again. How I would like to stand in front of him and say, “What the hell kind of 6th grade thinking is that!!??

Climate Change, Snow, and Government

There was an article in the New York Times a couple of Sundays ago that said, “Nothing besides a national policy shift on how we create and consume energy will keep our mountains white in the winter — and slow global warming to a safe level.” The article then went on to mourn the loss of snow cover here and there around the planet and what this might mean for the author’s love of skiing in fresh, “waist-deep powder.” He also brought up how ski resorts are struggling to stay open, how many jobs the skiing industry provides, and points out the $66 billion that the winter sports industry contributes to the national economy.

I am sympathetic, but only to a point. This article is a perfect example of the kind of thinking that has gotten us into trouble with governments, with each other, and with Mother Earth.

First, the appeal to government to “do something” is an appeal I see often. It reminds me of a little kid who, recognizing that he doesn’t have enough size, strength, or power to beat the neighborhood bully, appeals to his dad to “do something.” It’s like running to tattle to a higher authority with the expectation – or hope, or secret demand – that they use their power to change the situation to what you think it should be. We run to the U.S. government because it’s supposed to be the biggest, bad-est, power in the land. It is our papa, our mama, our last resort when we feel powerless. And this is exactly how government began to overstep its bounds. We began asking it to do things that government should never be invited to do. Government exists, if at all, to determine the principles by which their people should be guided – not make a string of laws that are shallow reactions to a constantly changing landscape of competitors.

Second… is job creation or job maintenance the spur we should be digging into the flanks of an ailing government, or is that just beating a dead horse? Shouldn’t that spur be digging at the flanks of business? When are we going to recognize that having a job is akin to having a babysitter? With a job, we don’t have to think about responsibility for the self or the world. We just show up in order to collect that paycheck. All the real problems are someone else’s headache.

Third…to demand a national policy shift on how we create and consume energy in order to keep our mountains white and slow down global warming is to demand that government enact laws to benefit big business – and isn’t that the essence of fascism? The definition of fascism is the unholy and unrestricted alliance of government and business.

At what point are we going to stop insisting that the cycles of Mother Earth stop inconveniencing us? She has things she must do for herself and her own health and healing. It is clear if you study the cycles of climate change that the earth has been much colder and much warmer in the past, and it had nothing to do with the amount of carbon-based fuel being consumed. Sea level has also been both much lower and much higher, and yes, living beings were forced to change. I’m sure these climate cycles were not designed just to stress humans. And personally, I think it is the height of human arrogance to think that we can or should interfere with these cycles.

If there is any change that is needed badly right now, it is the need for humans to become more flexible, more willing to shift as the climate changes. The Earth is not here for us. We are here for the Earth.

Mobile Phone Hacking

I see that the trial of a half-dozen people for hacking into mobile phone messages is close to the end of the Prosecution side of the case. I wonder why these six people are being prosecuted for listening in to phone messages when the NSA and its accomplices are doing the same thing. Not only that, they’re building a gigantic warehouse in Utah to store the recordings of those messages! We used to say, “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.” Who is going to prosecute the NSA?
