The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance; it is the illusion of knowledge.
– Stephen Hawkings
Truth: the most deadly weapon ever discovered by humanity. Capable of destroying entire perceptual sets, cultures, and realities. Outlawed by all governments everywhere. Possession is normally punishable by death.
– John Gilmore
A man does what he must — in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures.

They Have No Philosophy
The one area where I sometimes have a difference of opinion with friends of mine that are “awake” relates to my certainty that TPTB cannot win this battle. There are two main reasons I think they are completely doomed. The first one is the internet, which I have written in detail on before so I am not going to belabor on it here. Long story short, never in human history have we as a species been able to connect so efficiently and effectively with one another. This makes one of the key methods of control, “divide, conquer, war” much more difficult for them to implement. I have always felt that human disposition lies on a bell curve. So let’s say for the sake of argument that 1% is just extraordinarily wicked, selfish, mentally deranged so along the lines of a Stalin like character. Then let’s say the 1% on the other side is gentle, enlightened, and moral almost to a fault so a Gandhi like character. Then the masses in the middle are not of any extreme disposition in either way, but are easily malleable and generally just “go along to get along.” Well as far as recorded human history is concerned, the 1% of nasty, immoral parasites have dominated humanity through the various playbooks strategies that I and many others have outlined. The 1% on the other side have generally been silenced or ostracized systematically by the control freak “leaders” and if that fails to work, they are simply murdered. I mean even up until the 20th Century think about the kinds of guys that have been murdered. Gandhi. Martin Luther King Jr. John Lennon. Oh and if we want to go back a couple thousand years there was Jesus. The list is endless. Guys that talk about a higher level of consciousness and love and actually make inroads in society are murdered. Yet no one ever seems to take a shot at the genocidal, sociopaths that run our lives through politics and banking (nor would I ever want that as I do not condone violence as a solution to a violent system). Interesting isn’t it? I think it is pretty obvious why this is the case. The 1% on the decent side of the bell curve aren’t murderers. The guys on the other side of it are.
So now on to the point of this piece. These guys are done for. Finished. I have never been more sure of this in my life. When I first started really writing on these subjects four or five years ago there was a certain percent of humanity I felt had to awaken to actually be able to transition from this ponzi scheme global economic system of oppression and death into something demonstrably better. We have now exceeded the number I thought was necessary by 2 or 3 times. At least. We must understand that all political and economic systems that are to survive must have some degree of belief in the system on behalf of the population. In short there must be an attractive philosophy. While it was clearly an evil philosophy rooted in hatred and xenophobia, the Nazis did indeed have a philosophy that they successfully sold to an economically destitute and downtrodden populace. The USA has had its own philosophy since WW2 and it had also been successfully sold to the population. This was a philosophy of “doing good” and being a “city on a hill” as a shining representative for the rest of the world. While there is no doubt that the United Stated had been a wonderful place to live and do business for much of the last 60 years, as our power grew we became an increasingly destructive force in the world. A force of oppression rather than freedom and the truly sick 1% of the bell curve has gradually taken over all of the levers of power in the nation. Particularly in politics, banking and big business. Our very own axis of evil.
Well here is where the parasitic 1% have their problem. What they have “sold” the American public as the spirit of the nation is now in direct opposition to reality. In fact, it has become so obviously untrue that the population is waking in drove to the truth and the truth is that we have a utterly corrupt, sociopathic minority running the nation like a giant criminal syndicate for their own power and money. Therein lies their weakness however. They have no philosophy. These guys are actually so twisted that all they think about is how can they keep growing their money and power. Furthermore, they are operating under an exposed playbook of control. Just take a look at Obama’s approval ratings. They are plunging. They are plunging despite fabricated economic numbers and biblical stock market rigging to make things look good. They are plunging because people are waking up and seeing all of this for what it is. A gigantic scam. All the signs I see point to increasing desperation on their part and exponential awakening on the part of the meat of the bell curve. These guys are toast and what we should now be focusing most of our attention on is what kind of society we want when this one collapses. Hopefully the other side of the bell curve can influence the debate for the first times in five thousand years. That is my hope and my vision of the future.
Greg Smith’s Op Ed
I want to salute Mr. Greg Smith today. Here is a guy that was an Executive Director at Goldman Sachs and head of the firm’s United States equity derivatives business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He has resigned from the firm and today is his last day. In leaving, he has penned a powerful Op Ed for the New York Times. You can read it here http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/14/opinion/why-i-am-leaving-goldman-sachs.html?pagewanted=1&_r=2&smid=fb-share. Now of course to pretty much every on this list this is nothing shocking. We all know the guys that run these firms are complete raging psychopaths that can’t see anything beyond their own paycheck. That said, this demonstrates bravery. Many people may resign and then they don’t speak up about it. They are fearful they might be blackballed or worse. Fear is the most useless emotion on the planet. There is nothing to ever be afraid of. We are on this planet to learn and have an impact. Whether your impact is positive or negative is the beauty of being a human being and it is this exercise of free will that can distinguish us from a pig in a pen. I have no doubt whatsoever that the universe deals with bad karma in its own way. That is not our individual responsibility. We are responsible only for our choices and our impact. As Gandhi said “be the change you want to see in the world.”
Mr. Smith ends his Op Ed with the following. “I hope this can be a wake-up call to the board of directors. Make the client the focal point of your business again. Without clients you will not make money. In fact, you will not exist. Weed out the morally bankrupt people, no matter how much money they make for the firm. And get the culture right again, so people want to work here for the right reasons. People who care only about making money will not sustain this firm — or the trust of its clients — for very much longer.” While this is a noble rallying cry I would say there is a 0% chance of this ever happening. The system is now unsalvageable. It is a total ponzi economy rooted in very few real productive activities and in which crony capitalists and their political minions control everything. This thing has no chance of survival and so the only thing we need to focus on is not allowing the mentally sick 1% determine the next system (oh and to clarify I don’t mean 1% in terms of monetary wealth. Even though the nastiest elements of society do tend to gather the most wealth in this system since they have zero hang ups about murder, theft and corruption, the nasty 1% are all over the socio economic spectrum. Notice how the most ruthless gang leader gets to the top in a ghetto. Same concept in the larger ghetto that is modern America).
Humanity is Rising
To the pessimists out there I want to remind you of a very simple and sad truth. The maniacal 1% already own this thing. They are fully in political and economic control as they have been for thousands of years. So let’s say they kill billions in WW3 and then they keep control. Well guess what? That is no different from what they have been doing forever. It’s not as if we as a species are going to “lose” much. We have been losing for centuries. The bigger point is to take a step back and recognize the moment. We have the tools at our fingertips and the awakening happening to change the paradigm. So get off the mat and do your part. Just like Greg Smith. The choice is yours.
Peace and wisdom,
