Immaturity Among Nations

I have to laugh. The new trend in inflammatory rhetoric is complaining about other countries that “interfere” in national policy or procedures. First, it was the U.S. blasting Russia for the alleged hacking of Clinton emails. The latest is China blasting the U.S. because we invited Taiwanese delegates to Trump’s inauguration.  This reminds me of my children as they grew up. Each one got into trouble in some way and got caught…because adults talk to one another

I will never forget the day my second daughter stood in front of me, hands on hips, and said in her strictest, most powerful voice, “You may not discuss me with anyone. I forbid you to talk to other people about me!”

Trying not to laugh out loud, I simply said, “Sorry! Parents talk, teachers talk, and neighbors talk. That’s how we make sure no one gets into serious trouble.”

“That’s not fair!” she argued loudly.

“Life is not fair, and I want you to get to adulthood in one piece!” I replied. As I walked away I added, “And I’m going to talk about you with whoever I need or want to as long as you’re under my roof.”

The nations of the world are like a bunch of siblings with no parents. The truth is, there is no way that any nation can afford to not do what it must to find out what the rest of us are up to. There is no way that one nation can forbid others to talk, visit, or trade with anyone else. We need to talk. We need to know what is going on. We need to know one another. It will keep us out of trouble.

Media, Truth, and Perception

There have been a number of people asking me what sources I use for my information. The latest was Janet, so I decided to answer in a post.

When it comes to television, I watch it rarely, maybe once every couple of months. When I do, I watch Link TV with Amy Goodman. The rest of TV has been a wasteland for a long time and network TV will probably never fulfill the promise of its potential to develop and educate us.

Regarding newspapers, the mainstream newspaper I still read most often is the New York Times – mostly to get a good feel for the propaganda being perpetrated on the U.S. The NYT seems to have suddenly tempered some of their reporting a tiny bit since the election, but is still very biased and still failing to report all of what is going on in a balanced way. As for radio, I no longer listen to radio or NPR at all – most of that stuff is milktoast.

A side note… Since I travel to the east coast a fair amount, it is clear to me that the people in Washington DC and New York – all of whom have been lost in some very comfortable illusions for a long time – are about to experience a taste of what Detroit experienced when the Big 3 automakers suddenly found themselves ousted by Japanese carmakers…uncertainty, loss of income, abrupt expulsion from the illusion of security, a total paradigm shift, and a feeling of their world being turned upside down. My point in mentioning this is that all of the mainstream media has been totally controlled by the people in Washington DC and New York.

To get an idea of what is really going on and how people think and feel outside of DC, New York, and the U.S., I visit sites like NSNBC (my favorite), InfoWars, DrudgeReport, Breitbart, Truthdig, ZeroHedge, RealistNews, NewEasternOutlook, Xinhua News Agency, Jon Rappaport, RT News, Veterans Today, Washington’s Blog, Gmail News, French news, English news, Russian news, and a number of sites that are not well known at all but still provide a serious context for what is happening in the world around us.

I think it would be important to say that I am not looking for “the truth” from any of these sources. I am looking at the consciousness and assessing the language that is represented by each of these outlets. I then put together a picture for myself of what people are saying, thinking, and doing here and there. I weigh all of this along with what my own inner knowing is telling me, and out of this emerges a picture of what might be called “What is.”

This picture of ‘what is’ gets sifted, sorted, added to, subtracted from, dumped, retrieved, tweaked, and re-shaped again and again over the ensuing days and weeks, eventually resulting in something much broader and deeper than any media outlet could ever present. It allows me to see what is happening and to examine all of the factors that are in play at any given time.  In other words, “the truth” is something I discern for myself, and I am never in a hurry to declare what that truth is. What most people think is true, is usually just a momentary snapshot of where they are pointing their perception and attention.

Ch. 1, America—Breeding Ground for Psychopaths?

“It is 10:30 a.m. in central Florida. Beads of sweat drip from the foreheads of tourists waiting in long, winding lines at Disneyworld for an exciting ride on the Submarine Nautilus. Less than 10 miles away, 9-year-old Jeffery Bailey Jr. is also waiting. He is waiting for his young companion to die. After making sure that no one else is around, Jeffery has pushed 3-year-old Ricardo “Nicki” Brown into the deep end of a motel pool. He knows the younger child cannot swim and is afraid of the water.

“It is taking Nicki a long time to die. Jeffery gets tired of standing, so he pulls up a lawn chair to the edge of the pool. He wants a better view of how someone drowns. Jeffery stays by the pool until Nicki sinks to the bottom, lifeless. Then he puts on his shoes and shirt and saunters toward home.

“A short time later he asks another neighborhood child what the “icky white stuff” is that comes out of someone’s nose when they’re drowning. He doesn’t mention that Nicki is at this moment lying at the bottom of a pool.

“Nicki’s body is recovered from the pool at 6:40 p.m. by the police. Later, after neighborhood children have told Jeffery’s mother about the drowning, the youngster tells his mother about the “accident.” (Kissimmee Police Department, June 3, 1986)

Police officer Beth Peturka who investigated the case says she found Jeffery “kind of nonchalant, like he was enjoying all the attention.” On June 3, 1986, the State of Florida charges 9-year-old Jeffery with murder.”   —from  High Risk – Children Without a Conscience by Dr. Ken Magid and Carole A. McKelvey

I knew there was corruption, but I didn’t know how ugly, and I can’t help thinking about those lost children. How many parents and families put out photos of their missing babies, searching, hoping, but never seeing them again? What sort of agony must they be going through as they wonder, ‘Was it my little one among those who fell into the hands of the Clintons?’

I did not get much sleep last night. I would wake, weep, and then go back into a very restless state of half asleep, half awake. Few things get to me the way the corruption of Hillary Clinton and her team of psychopaths has. When something upsets me, I usually go inside to work on myself until I arrive at a new balance point and in the process, I learn something useful about life.  It is not often that I allow myself to get vividly angry.

The definition of a psychopath is one who is not bonded to anyone else, and is superficially very charming then suddenly explosively enraged. Someone with psychopathic characteristics is cruel, controlling, remorseless, tends to be impulsive without relying on common sense, and is given to primary process lying (which is continuing to lie even when it is blatantly obvious that they are not telling the truth). They are often very smooth and manage to project exactly what they are doing onto others, thus shifting the blame and responsibility to everyone but themselves. We have a government of pathological control-freaks and psychopaths.

I’m sure that I will be able to find that elusive balance point eventually, maybe when I am done grieving, but for right now… in spite of the fact that I keep trying to tell myself that maybe the reports coming out about the Clintons are not true…I’m so angry, so sad… for us, for those who have been raped, murdered, or defrauded…for the people of our country…for the people of Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, and other countries invaded and destroyed by our crazies…for our future…and for the way the Clinton/Bush/Rockefeller/Soros machine just keeps marching ahead, media in hand, as if nothing has happened…as if we are going to fall in line as we usually do. How pathetic and stupid of them. I’m so ashamed of what passes for “government” here in the U.S. and for the way the rest of the world must be looking at us.

I worry, if I am so deeply angry about this, what are other people feeling? Three hundred million angry people would be a lot of anger. What are we going to do with all that anger? Anger is change energy that has not been allowed to go anywhere. How do we channel that energy into something better than what we’ve had for the last few decades?

Paris Parallels

Isn’t it amazing how many similarities there are between the Paris attacks and the attacks of September 11th in the U.S.?

The alleged attackers in both scenarios came from Middle Eastern countries that the cabal has been wanting to take over – Iraq then, and Syria now.

The attacks weren’t even a few hours old when French President Hollande accused Syria of being involved. He sounded just like the Bush gang accusing Iraq of being involved in 9/11.

Someone very conveniently found the I.D. of one of the Paris attackers in the trash, just like someone found the I.D. of one of the men allegedly involved in the Trade Center bombings. Additional incriminating evidence of bombs and jackets have been found in other trash bins, making the whole thing look and sound so hokey.

Even before they found the I.D., police began going after people they said were involved in the attacks. How did they know who these people were? How did they identify them so quickly? Other murder cases languish for years, sometimes forever. It turns out, they had been watching some of the attackers for years, and then carefully looked away as the attackers planned and carried out their attacks. The same tactic was used in the U.S. around the 9/11 attacks.

I can’t help but think about the regular surveillance that goes on by U.S., British, and French authorities and how easy it would be for them to keep their finger on the pulse of what’s happening among the so-called terrorists. Using this ‘inside information,’ they could then use the old Rothschild habit of pretending to support both sides of a conflict in order to create a desired situation, and then betray the attackers by turning on them! Of course, the attackers usually end up dead once their usefulness has been exhausted so they can’t talk about who funded or supplied them.

All of France shut down, just as the U.S. did, on the basis of fear. Suddenly people are being checked at train stations, airports, and borders – a total invasion of privacy. Even more disturbing is the reappearance of closed borders, razor wire, and distrust. We didn’t see the borders close or razor wire here in the U.S., but we did see the distrust of anyone who looked like they were from the Middle East.

In Paris, there is a clear attitude of “stay in your house, stay out of the way, and don’t ask questions.” We’ve seen that here in the U.S. in both the Boston bombing, and after 9/11 when George Bush threatened everyone by saying we either had to be ‘with the government or against it’ – no room for anything in the middle that might question what just happened or why.

In the U.S. the sorely misnamed Patriot Act was rushed through after the 9/11 attacks. We’ll probably soon see what France will try to push through as part of their attack agenda…sigh…so tired of all the terrorism stuff. It’s like a never-ending game of cops and robbers. How long do we have to keep playing? I wish the government would grow up.

Snapshot

[This is longer than I like my posts to be, but I couldn’t make it any shorter. It is structured as one brief introductory paragraph and one long, run-on paragraph because I wanted the information in the long paragraph to engulf you without a break in the same way the world engulfs us all…without a break, without time off, and without the ability to take little bites in the form of separate sentences that allow us to grasp things in neatly segregated pieces that we never put together as a whole.]

When I give a talk somewhere, I am frequently surprised that so many people have no idea what is going on in the world. They can hardly believe some of the things I mention, and I can hardly believe they don’t know what I’m talking about. At a talk last June, I promised to put together a list of newspapers and websites that I read frequently. As I was putting the list together, I ended up reviewing what is happening in the world. That led to forgetting the list of links and news sources, and putting together a “snapshot” of what is going on at the moment. I think the reason people don’t know what is going on is because U.S. media is feeding them drivel in order to keep things under control. You have to go outside our media to get the truth…or at least a broader and deeper view.

There are wars raging across the northern tier of Africa, all the way around the eastern end of the Mediterranean, up into the Ukraine, and over into Afghanistan. All of these wars have been started by the U.S. in an attempt to keep Russia landlocked, cut off Russian pipelines, and encircle China in order to contain the once-sleeping giant. Russia is bombing the strongholds of the U.S.-created, U.S.-trained, and U.S-financed terrorist groups known variously as al Quaeda/al Nusrah/ISIS/ISIL/IS. Japan is arguing with Russia over the Kuril Islands to the north of Japan, and Taiwan is the subject of arguments between the U.S. and China to the south. There is a ferocious but hidden war going on within the U.S. to wrest control of the U.S. from those who have taken over our financial system, our legal system, and the republic itself. When the corrupt ones in the U.S. were in full control, the goal was to get control of poor Syria, kick out Assad, and put in a “democratic” puppet. Now that the corrupt ones are teetering, the good guys in the white hats have made deals with Russia, Iran, and Iraq to make sure Assad stays, which is why Russia is bombing the heck out of ISIS strongholds in Syria…and why the U.S. really can’t say much because if they do, they’ll expose the truth about the fact these are U.S.-backed terrorists doing U.S. dirty work. Brazil is reeling from the same kind of corruption that has taken over the United States. Venezuela and Spain are arguing between themselves, even as Venezuela is fighting within itself and assassinating grassroots leaders who try to improve life for all. Somalia continues its fight against al Shabaab while it tries to deal with refugees from Ethiopia. Ethiopia continues to struggle with Eritrea and is the source of the second biggest refugee crisis in Africa. Eritrea is struggling with itself, its poverty, its martyrs, and its requirement of unending education and then unending “service,” which never allows anyone to leave. “The unfortunate ones who try to escape are kidnapped, or deported, held for ransom, sold, or used as body parts and left in the desert.” Egypt has seen a drop in their foreign reserve financial accounts from $35.8 Billion down to $16.8 Billion, making it clear that tourists and investors don’t like revolution. Yemen is still bombing and being bombed, caught in the foibles of the West and its northern neighbor, Saudi Arabia. Jordan is in bed with the Israeli-U.S.-Turkey corrupt ones and is involved in training terrorists. Europe is being swamped with refugees from Syria, Iraq, Libya, and other countries in northern Africa who are trying to get away from the wars that have bombed them back to the Stone Age. An international court has declared that data mining by the NSA is illegal, thus closing off NSA access to information from U.S. and E.U. corporations. Mexico is struggling to retain at least a little of its power, quite a bit of which has been smuggled away by drug lords who control whole cities. Afghanistan was a major site of fighting until the U.S. pipeline went through in the south of the country. It seemed to move to the back burner, but has recently re-emerged because the problem of how to keep control of that pipeline out of the hands of the Taliban have come up again. China’s economy has lost 40% of its value since June. It is being slowly smothered by coal smog, and the Chinese are not sure what to do after vicious attacks that tried to explode their main financial supercomputer in Tianhe, a computer that is twice as fast as anything the U.S. has. Canada seems frozen in a position of subservience to the corruption in Washington DC and can’t admit that their involvement in current wars is in direct violation of their own national laws. Ditto for France. Israel-The-Paranoid continues to pull the strings in Washington DC, because the U.S. military is the major military arm of Netanyahu’s cabinet. Fighting may have slowed between North Sudan and South Sudan, which recently broke into two countries, but both are uneasy. Chad, Niger, and Nigeria continue to fight Boko Haram – another bunch of terrorists started, funded, and trained by the United States. Turkey continues to play monkey-in-the-middle between Russia, Israel, and the U.S., while all four countries continue to exploit the amazing fighting skills of the Kurds who usually get dumped once the fighting is over. Libya may never recover from the various factions now fighting for control within it. It, too, may as well be back in the Stone Age. Ukraine continues to fight, then smolder on the back burner, then fight, then smolder on the back burner, depending on whether or not the U.S. needs it as propaganda against Russia. Australia can’t seem to find itself or a humane position from which to operate and suffers from serious foot-in-mouth disease as it struggles with the fact that it is located within the Asian sphere of influence while strings are being pulled from yonder England. Japan is under the thumb of the U.S. and their Prime Minister Abe is one of our puppets. Their struggle to get free of this has been ongoing since their loss to us in WWII. There has been a serious financial war going on between East and West that centers around the price of oil and an attempt to sink the Russian economy, which is based heavily on oil. Stupidly, we put sanctions on Russia, which merely taught them to be more resourceful and more creative. Within the West itself another war unfolds between the Rockefeller camp and the Rothschild camp. The Rockefellers are losing, mostly because the Rothschilds are older and have more experience. They also have the good sense to read the writing on the wall and have learned over time to go along with big changes while watching for ways to re-establish control. The Rothschilds don’t waste time trying to win petty battles only to end up losing the war. I think it’s quite interesting that, 1. An article in an Iowa newspaper presents an amazing and coherent story containing considerable evidence, including dozens of photographs belonging to Otto Skorzeny, that Prescott Bush and his son, George Herbert Walker Bush, were originally Nazi operatives and George’s real name was George H. Scherff. 2. That many Nazis fled to South America and assumed new identities, and 3. The Bush family has purchased huge amounts of land in South America where they intend to run if things get difficult for them here. Is the Nazi history trying to repeat itself? The Israelis are doing the same thing to the Palestinians that was done to them by Hitler. How will we ever heal Israel when she has cast herself as the perpetual scapegoat child of Earth’s family? In Argentina they are still using the excuse of “no birth certificate or paperwork – no rights” to deny hundreds of thousands of people the right to education, medical care, and income-producing work. The fastest internet systems in the world are not to be found in the Americas – either north or south. Almost all are in Asia or Europe, which brings the question, why doesn’t the U.S. have decent internet? Are they afraid of what full connectivity would do? There is talk of the coming Balkanization of the United States – a breakup into half a dozen regions – which has been the fate of many places, especially in Eastern Europe, and now the Middle East and Africa. Why? Because a small regional power will not have the ability to challenge a one-world government. The U.S. will run out of money on November 5th of this year. There are serious droughts in Zambia and faltering efforts to keep what little electricity they have going. South Africa is having similar problems. The islands of Kiribati continue to sink slowly as the seas rise. Germany is making the same attempt to distract its citizens with sports and movie drivel as the U.S. does to its citizens. That may backfire as the Germans try to absorb 1.5 million refugees from everywhere who are hungry and tired and have no interest in drivel. And if you have any doubt that Americans are being fed a lot of belly-button gazing, narcissistic crap designed to keep us distracted and dumbed down about what is happening, take a quick look at this website!!:

The great paradox about this age of perfect communication, of course, is that nobody knows anything about what’s going on.” – Wolcott Gibbs, from Backward Ran Sentences, written in 1941.

“The Grid”

Back in early 2015, I kept picking up something unusual happening in October 2015. I am a consultant for a number of people who have a great deal of money, and in doing some work for them, I kept seeing something that I could not identify other than that it was big and would affect everyone.

I continued to keep my eye out for pieces of additional information that might come to me. On June 14, 2015, one of my Washington DC clients asked what I sensed for the second half of the year. I said I was picking up things that were basically good, although there were rumblings in the financial markets, and something else that kept coming up that I hadn’t been able to get many details about other than it “started in August, became bigger in September, and engulfed the world by October…something that turned the applecart over.”

Because of my clairvoyance, I have an 8-track mind and I watch information coming in on many mental screens at all times. One day in late July I was doing something in the office when one of my “screens” opened up. I glanced at it, thought, “Oh, that’s the October problem,” and went back to what I was doing. A second later I was electrified and thought, “Hey! That was… what was that???” But I could not remember what I had seen.

I gave myself directions to see that screen open again, and about four days later the same thing happened. This time I managed to get two words, “the grid.” I wasn’t sure if that meant the electrical grid, the communications grid, the financial grid, or some other grid.

I then gave myself directions to gather more information about what was happening with the grid, and about two weeks later a piece came to me that “the grid” referred to the internet. I had the question in my mind, “Is the internet going to go down?” A response came… “The internet will not so much “go” down as much as it will be “taken” down.

When I asked “Why?” the answer came back, “To stop the free-fall.” I then had a picture of computers being stopped because if they had been allowed to keep going, the banks would be empty and everyone would be bankrupt. By shutting down the whole system, the wealth of a few would be preserved and the authorities could then say, “Well, we had this problem, but everything is now okay. We just need to sort things out and get back online and everything will be fine.”

But everything was not fine. It was chaos.

I received a video link yesterday. Today I clicked on it and found it to be a news report from a place called Real News. It was an analysis of a 10-part television series called Mr. Robot, which has evidently been shown on national TV over the summer. It concluded with the 10th episode, which spelled out the exact scenario I’ve been seeing – the grid goes down and our financial system is destroyed. Here is the link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b015nM4GPK4

The newsman observed something I have heard many times before, that the Cabal LOVES to warn us of what is going to happen next in our world by making a movie full of ‘hidden information’ about the future. He then went on to point out what the TV movie series was saying – or warning us about – and it is exactly what I’ve been seeing…with a little more detail added.

In the television series, a group of hackers were hired to insert a virus into the banking system. This would begin September 23 and would eventually collapse the system everywhere – Europe and China included. September 23 is 2 ½ weeks away. That doesn’t leave much time to prepare, should the scenario be accurate.

The government is in complete control of the financial system and if the financial system collapses, the government is going to collapse with it. The government cannot afford to let the financial system go down because it knows that doing so will be the end of government. Thus, it would seem they would go to extreme lengths to keep the system from collapsing.

However, if I assume that the predictions offered by the Mr. Robot TV series are true and I look at the situation from an intuitive point of view, it appears that the government is responsible for inserting the virus. This is somewhat confusing. Why would they engineer a financial collapse? And then shut down the internet?

The answer might be just what I saw – so they would be able to claim that the internet is to blame, that the financial system is still viable, and the government is still legitimate. They would claim that we just have to sort out the mess and carry on with life as usual…and no one would ever know the truth about why it happened, what went on in the background, or what was really lost.

First, the U.S. is bankrupt. Could they be trying to hide this fact?

Second, besides the bankruptcy, there have been more and more exposures of corruption, and the people who have been directly involved in the corruption are under tremendous pressure. If the truth came out, it would destroy them and the government. Would destroying the financial system help cover this fact?

Third, now that all of the bankers who could point fingers and blame anyone have been murdered over the past three years, is the government going to destroy the computers – i.e. burn the books – that hold all the evidence of illegal transfers and payoffs, and that also reveal that they’re bankrupt?

Ruining the banking system using a virus is a very selective hack. In the TV series, the whole internet doesn’t go down, just the banking does. How convenient for the government, which needs to keep the drama going! If we can all just be kept occupied with Facebook and texting, we’ll be too distracted to do anything else – like think clearly or act with intention.

Fourth, looking at the whole thing from another point of view, it looks a lot like the September 11th bombing of the Trade Center buildings in New York in 2001. That was a massive gold heist of money that had been moved into the Trade Center in order to begin shipping it back to the East on September 12, 2001. We all know what happened. The gold disappeared. The take down of the internet/banking system may be another situation just like the Trade Center. Neil Keenan and Group K have just announced what appears to be a deal with the UK in which the Global Accounts are now being set up in several locations. According to Neil, $1.7 trillion in gold has already been deposited and more is on the way. What happens to the records of that gold if the financial system gets a virus and collapses? The take down of the internet or the banking system sets the stage for the gold to disappear and the elite to act as if there never was any gold in the first place.

Fifth, with all of the intelligence and tracking capabilities of the CIA and Mossad, how was it that Keenan was allowed to remain alive? Was it because they let him do all the heavy work of finding the gold, convincing the elders that it would be used to rebuild the Earth, and get the gold shipped into the hands of the Western bankers – who already had plans to insert a virus into the banking system computers and make the money disappear? Or maybe to make the old system disappear and when the internet comes back on line to fill out their balance sheets with numbers from the gold Keenan sent them, as if nothing was ever wrong in the first place? In Neil’s latest blog post, he says point blank that London is the financial center of the corruption…and in the same post announce that he has made a deal with the UK!!

In concluding, it is not clear whether the grid would be taken down more because the Cabal doesn’t want the Global Accounts to be available to rebuild the world…or because they just want the gold to replenish their own coffers…or because they are trying to avoid admitting that they cannot pay China…or because they want to screw Russia…or whether they really just want to make sure the extent of their corruption and bankruptcy will never be known. If they can hide the extent of their corruption and bankruptcy, AND get their hands on more gold, they have a chance of maintaining their power and keeping control over everything.

All of this really comes down to a massive attack on Russia and China because they hold billions – no, trillions – of dollars in U.S. currency. If a bad-boy virus wipes out our system of currency, then…oops! It’s not the government’s fault! Somebody did it to us, and we’re trying hard to fix it, but it just isn’t fixable, so we’ll just have to start over…unless…you have records, Mr. China? Oh! What’s that you say? You’re having difficulty with your computers too?! My, my! I guess we’ll all have to start over. Darn. That’s too bad.

And just like the Robes said, the corporate dinosaurs would go after one another and take each other out in a fierce competition to be able to say, “I rule the world!!!” I always expected this to be corporations like General Motors, or the coal companies vs. the solar companies. But now I’m realizing that it could very well mean the Corporation of the United States and the other countries who have incorporated or at least adopted capitalism. If those nation-state structures are now in a battle to the death, their death throes will shake us all.

Of course, if we could wake up and take charge of things, we might begin to understand the game, realize that we’re the pawns providing the pinball drama that entertains the big players as they pull the levers and watch the chaos created by their games. Perhaps it is time for us to learn to shake or slant the table to make things go the way we want them to go. We might discover our power and learn to use it wisely and well.

Thoughts?

The Rise of Corporations

Years ago I was visited by a group of little men in brown Robes. They showed me lots of things about the future. One of the things I saw when with them was the break-up of nations. I found this hard to take in and I expected it would be a rather messy process, but it seemed to proceed in a way that looked like a strange combination of logical, surreptitious, and natural…although there were certainly lots of arguments and court fights, complicated by natural disasters, assassinations, and regional fights.

In reading the few snippets of information coming from those who have been allowed to see the TPP, TiSA, and TTIP agreements, I was reminded of what I saw with the Robes – the rise of corporations to power, which then precipitated the break-up of nations.

The trade agreement that was “fast-tracked” through the U.S. Congress has sealed the power of corporations, up-staging government altogether, usurping the power of nations and making them redundant, almost unnecessary. This will lead eventually to the coalescence of fiercely bio-regional agreements that become corporations in their own right in order to balance the power of the big corporations. The difference between these regional corporations and the big global corporations will be that the regional ones will care deeply about their people and their corner of the Earth.

As of yesterday afternoon, the TPP was approved by the Senate. The whole thing was kept secret because it accomplishes the take-down of the nation and transfers legal power to corporations. The bottom line is that we no longer have a sovereign nation.

The Robes warned against trying to go back to what was. As they predicted, we would not pay attention to what was really happening until it was too late. Suffice it to say, the day of the nation is over. The questions we have to ask ourselves might include:

  1. What can we envision that might be even better than what we used to have?
  2. What do we need to be creating that looks beyond the ascendancy of the corporation and compensates for its shortcomings?
  3. How has our government infantilized us, and what do we need to do to take responsibility for our lives?
  4. How should we be positioning ourselves to move into the future?

I have a sign hanging in my bathroom that says, “Accept what is, let go of what was, have faith in what will be.” We are going to need this advice.
