For some time now, people like former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Catherine Austin Fitts and many others – including yours truly – have been warning about the dangers of crypto-currencies, and more especially, of Central Bank Digital Currencies or CBDCs. Our warnings have consistently centered around three basic dangers they carry with them: (1) they are not energy efficient, and as electronically based systems can be subject to outages such as electro-magnetic pulse and so on, and additionally as cyber-systems, suffer from the lack of integrity in such systems. Indeed, when I first heard about them, one of my own personal warnings was that in spite of claims to the contrary, they could be hacked. Stories have finally appeared to this effect. (2) Contrary to claims of privacy and to the early claims that crypto-currencies spelled the end of central bank private money monopolies, such technologies in the hands of central banks, with the power to mandate their use and to outlaw others, would spell the end of privacy. Finally and most importantly (3) such currencies in the hands of central banks, coupled with social credit scoring systems, would effectively not be a currency at all, but more like corporate coupons whose value (or lack thereof) could be adjusted on a case-to-case basis, depending on your behaviour and your thinking.
These may seem like outlandish ideas, but the following article shared by V.T. provides confirmation of these basic theses:
Let us be clear about the developments outlined in this article: while these “currencies” may be new, they are not normal nor are they currencies. Note the following statements:
For those who have never heard of them, “Central Bank Digital Currencies” (CBDCs) are exactly what they sound like, digitized versions of the pound/dollar/euro etc. issued by central banks.
Like bitcoin (and other crypto), the CBDC would be entirely digital, thus furthering the ongoing war on cash. However, unlike crypto, it would not have any encryption preserving anonymity. In fact, it would be totally the reverse, potentially ending the very idea of financial privacy.
Now, you may not have heard much about the CBDC plans, lost as they are in the tangle of the ongoing “pandemic”, but the campaign is there, chugging along on the back pages for months now. There are stories about it from both Reuters and the Financial Times just today. It’s a long, slow con, but a con nonetheless.
The countries where the idea progressed the furthest are China and the UK. The Chinese Digital Yuan has been in development since 2014, and is subject to ongoing and widespread testing. The UK is nowhere near that stage yet, but Chancellor Rishi Sunak is keenly pushing forward a digital pound that the press are calling “Britcoin”.
By far the most dangerous idea is that any future digital currency should be “programmable”. Meaning the people issuing the money would have the power to control how it is spent.
The article then links a video of Agustin Carstens, head of the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), and in case one missed it, actually cites him a little later in the article:
Here’s that quote again, with some emphasis added:
The key difference [with a CBDC] is that the central bank would have absolute control on the rules and regulations that will determine the use of that expression of central bank liability, and the have the technology to enforce that.”
…which tells you not only that they want and are seeking this power, but how they justify it to themselves. They transform other people’s money into an “expression of their liability”, and so consider it’s only right that they control it.
An article in the Telegraph, back in June, was just as candid [our emphasis]:
Digital cash could be programmed to ensure it is only spent on essentials, or goods which an employer or Government deems to be sensible
The article goes on to quote Tom Mutton, a director at the BoE:
You could introduce programmability […] There could be some socially beneficial outcomes from that, preventing activity which is seen to be socially harmful in some way.
It does not take a particle physicist to understand that if central banks can program their digital “currency” on a case-by-case individual basis to be spent only on certain things, the same capability also gives them the ability to determine the value of that “currency” on a case-by-case individual basis. In short, the same technology enables both the end of financial privacy and makes the “currency” into a corporate coupon. This is a one way mirror behind which the banksters can operate with impunity, and is tailor-made for even more financial fraud.
So how does one combat this? There are two simple solutions: do not bank with the big banks, use cash as much as possible in transactions, and start building networks with the realization that sooner or later, those networks might have to create currencies of their own.
When pondering the possible outcomes of this Fourth Turning, we tend to be drawn towards the negative, because a positive outcome seems so unlikely given the current animosity roiling the country. If you step back and realize all the hate and conflict is being engineered and coordinated by a ruling class of powerful rich men, then average Americans could organize a new paradigm that honors the original intent of the U.S. Constitution, allowing citizens the liberty and freedom to create voluntary associations based upon common interests at a local level.
The ruling oligarchs find this unacceptable, so this freedom must be wrested away from them by any means necessary. There is a civil war already underway, but only one side is fighting – the billionaire class who not only don’t want to relinquish some power, but want total control over every aspect of our lives. I believe this election will turn this one-sided silent war into a hot war.
Rather than wallowing in doom and the worst-case scenarios, we should be trying to figure out how to reorganize our nation going forward, after the billionaire oligarchs are defeated. As I was trying to go back in time to see when I wrote my first Fourth Turning article, I came across an article I wrote in 2010 – Brave New World 2010.
At the end of the article I noted the wisdom and practicality of Aldous Huxley’s advice on how to restructure our society, from his 1958 book Brave New World Revisited. This should be a template for restructuring our way of life if we want a sustainable future. I am not optimistic we have the fortitude, wisdom, courage and will to choose Huxley’s suggested path:
As recent history has repeatedly shown, the right to vote, by itself, is no guarantee of liberty. Therefore, if you wish to avoid dictatorship by referendum, break up modern society’s merely functional collectives into self-governing, voluntarily cooperating groups, capable of functioning outside the bureaucratic systems of Big Business and Big Government.
If you wish to avoid the spiritual impoverishment of individuals and whole societies, leave the metropolis and revive the small country community, or alternately humanize the metropolis by creating within its network of mechanical organization the urban equivalents of small country communities, in which individuals can meet and cooperate as complete persons, not as the mere embodiments of specialized functions.
Huxley’s prescription of re-humanizing our country and voluntarily choosing where we want to live and who we want to associate with in small enclaves is how many rural communities already function. We can either willingly choose this path peacefully, or we will be left with this as our only option after our modern world self-destructs during the violent cataclysm, following the crashing of our Ponzi scheme debt saturated economic system.
The American Empire is clearly in rapid decline and may not survive the trials and tribulations over the coming decade. The Fourth Turning is not a prophecy, but should be taken as a warning and call to action. Sitting this out and hoping for the best will not help achieve a positive outcome. Tragedy or triumph – the choices we make will matter. The climax of this Fourth Turning may be a few years off, but the battle for the soul of America begins on November 3.
“History offers no guarantees. Obviously, things could go horribly wrong – the possibilities ranging from a nuclear exchange to incurable plagues, from terrorist anarchy to high-tech dictatorship. We should not assume that Providence will always exempt our nation from the irreversible tragedies that have overtaken so many others: not just temporary hardship, but debasement and total ruin. Losing in the next Fourth Turning could mean something incomparably worse. It could mean a lasting defeat from which our national innocence – perhaps even our nation – might never recover.” – Strauss & Howe – The Fourth Turning
“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” ~ William Shakespeare
By Catherine Austin Fitts
I am not a scientist. I am not a doctor. I am not a biotech engineer. I am not an attorney. However, I read, listen, appreciate, and try to understand those who are.
I was an investment banker until politics made it impossible to continue to practice my art. I was trained as a portfolio strategist—so I map my world by watching the financial flows and allocation of resources. I was also trained as a conspiracy generator and foot soldier—conspiracies being the fundamental organizing principle of how things get done in our world. It was not until I left the establishment that I learned that those not in the club had been trained to disparage and avoid conspiracies—a clever trick that sabotages their efforts to gather power.
My response to living at war with agencies of the U.S. government for a time was to answer the questions of people who were sufficiently courageous and curious to solicit my opinion. Over many years, that response transformed into two businesses. One was The Solari Report, which continues to grow as a global intelligence network—we seek to help each other understand and navigate what is happening and contribute to positive outcomes. The other was serving as an investment advisor to individuals and families through Solari Investment Advisory Services. After ten years, I converted that business to doing an ESG screen. What those who use it want—that is not otherwise readily available in the retail market—is a screen that reflects knowledge of financial and political corruption. Tracking the metastasizing corruption is an art, not a science.
When you help a family with their finances, it is imperative to understand all their risk issues. Their financial success depends on successful mitigation of all the risks—whether financial or non-financial—that they encounter in their daily lives. Non-financial risks can have a major impact on the allocation of family resources, including attention, time, assets, and money.
Many of my clients and their children had been devastated and drained by health care failures and corruption—and the most common catalyst for this devastation was vaccine death and injury. After their lengthy and horrendous experiences with the health care establishment, they would invariably ask, “If the corruption is this bad in medicine, food, and health, what is going on in the financial world?” Chilled by the thought, they would search out a financial professional who was schooled in U.S. government and financial corruption. And they would find me.
The result of this flow of bright, educated people blessed with the resources to pay for my time was that, for ten years, I got quite an education about the disabilities and death inflicted on our children by what I now call “the great poisoning.” I had the opportunity to repeatedly price out the human damage to all concerned—not just the affected children but their parents, siblings, and future generations—mapping the financial costs of vaccine injury again and again and again. These cases were not as unusual as you might expect. Studies indicate that 54% of American children have one or more chronic diseases. Doctors who I trust tell me that number is actually much higher, as many children and their families cannot afford the care and testing necessary to properly diagnose what ails them.
One of the mothers featured in VAXXED—a must-watch documentary for any awake citizen, as is its sequel VAXXED II: The People’s Truth—estimated that a heavily autistic child would cost present value $5MM to raise and care for over a lifetime. When my clients who were grandparents insisted that they would not interfere with their children’s vaccine choices because it was “none of their business,” I would say, “Really? Who has the $5MM? You or your kids? When your kids need the $5MM to raise their vaccine-injured child, are you going to refuse them? You are the banker, and it is your money that is at risk here, so it is your business. Do you want to spend that $5MM on growing a strong family through the generations or on managing a disabled child who did not have to be disabled?” Often, that $5MM in expenditures also translates into divorce, depression, and lost opportunities for siblings.
My clients helped me find the best resources—books, documentaries, articles—on vaccines. You will find many of them linked or reviewed at The Solari Report, including in our Library.
Of all the questions that I had, the one that I spent the most time researching and thinking about was why. Why was the medical establishment intentionally poisoning generations of children? Many of the writers who researched and wrote about vaccine injury and death assumed it was an aberration—resulting from the orthodoxy of a medical establishment that could not face or deal with its mistakes and liabilities. That never made sense to me. Writings by Forrest Maready, Jon Rappoport, Dr. Suzanne Humphries and Arthur Firstenberg have helped me understand the role of vaccines in the con man trick of saving money for insurance companies and the legally liable.
Here is one example of how the trick may play out. A toxin creates a disease. The toxin might be pesticides or industrial pollution or wireless technology radiation. The toxin damages millions of people and their communities. Companies or their insurance provider may be liable for civil or criminal violations. Then a virus is blamed. A “cure” is found in a “vaccine.” The pesticide or other toxic exposure is halted just as the vaccine is introduced, and presto, the sickness goes away. The vaccine is declared a success, and the inventor is declared a hero. A potential financial catastrophe has been converted to a profit, including for investors and pension funds. As a portfolio strategist, I admit it has been a brilliant trick and likely has protected the insurance industry from the bankrupting losses it would experience if it had to fairly compensate the people and families destroyed.
Thanks to the work of Robert Kennedy and Mary Holland of Children’s Health Defense, I now understand the enormous profits generated by so-called “vaccines” subsequent to the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 and the creation of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program—a federal no-fault mechanism for compensating vaccine-related injuries or deaths by establishing a claim procedure involving the United States Court of Federal Claims and special masters. Call a drug or biotech cocktail a “vaccine,” and pharmaceutical and biotech companies are free from any liabilities—the taxpayer pays. Unfortunately, this system has become an open invitation to make billions from “injectibles,” particularly where government regulations and laws can be used to create a guaranteed market through mandates. As government agencies and legislators as well as the corporate media have developed various schemes to participate in the billions of profits, significant conflicts of interest have resulted.
The Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREPA or the PREP Act) became law in 2005, adding to corporate freedoms from liability. The Act “is a controversial tort liability shield intended to protect vaccine manufacturers from financial risk in the event of a declared public health emergency. The act specifically affords to drug makers immunity from potential financial liability for clinical trials of . . . vaccine at the discretion of the Executive branch of government. PREPA strengthens and consolidates the oversight of litigation against pharmaceutical companies under the purview of the secretary of Health and Human Services.” (~ Wikipedia)
Over time, this has evolved to the engineering of epidemics—the medical version of false flags. In theory, these can be “psyops” or events engineered with chemical warfare, biowarfare, or wireless technology. If this sounds strange, dive into all the writings of the “Targeted Individuals.”
I learned about this first-hand when I was litigating with the Department of Justice and was experiencing significant physical harassment. I tried to hire several security firms; they would check my references and then decline the work, saying it was too dangerous. The last one took pity and warned me not to worry about electronic weaponry, letting me know that my main problem would be low-grade biowarfare. This biowarfare expert predicted that the opposing team would drill holes in the wall of my house and inject the “invisible enemy.” Sure enough, that is exactly what happened. I sold my house and left town. That journey began a long process of learning how poisoning and nonlethal weapons are used—whether to move people out of rent-controlled apartments, sicken the elderly to move them to more expensive government-subsidized housing, gangstalk political or business targets, or weaken or kill litigants—and the list goes on. Poisoning turned out to be a much more common tactic in the game of political and economic warfare in America than I had previously understood.
After I finished my litigation, I spent several years detoxing from heavy metal toxicity—including from lead, arsenic, and aluminum. As I drove around America, I realized it was not just me. Americans increasingly looked like a people struggling with high loads of heavy metals toxicity. In the process of significantly decreasing my unusually high levels of heavy metals, I learned what a difference the toxic load had made to my outlook, my energy, and my ability to handle complex information.
This brings me to the question of what exactly a vaccine is and what exactly is in the concoctions being injected into people today as well as the witches’ brews currently under development.
In 2017, Italian researchers reviewed the ingredients of 44 types of so-called “vaccines.” They discovered heavy metal debris and biological contamination in every human vaccine they tested. The researchers stated, “The quantity of foreign bodies detected and, in some cases, their unusual chemical compositions baffled us.” They then drew the obvious conclusion, namely, that because the micro- and nanocontaminants were “neither biocompatible nor biodegradable,” they were “biopersistent” and could cause inflammatory effects right away—or later (http://medcraveonline.com/IJVV/IJVV-04-00072.pdf)
Whatever the ingredients of vaccines have been to date, nothing is more bizarre and unsettling than the proposals of what might be included in them in the future. Strategies—already well-funded and well on the way—include brain-machine interface nanotechnology, digital identity tracking devices, and technology with an expiration date that can be managed and turned off remotely. One report indicates that the Danish government and U.S. Navy had been paying a tech company in Denmark to make an injectible chip that would be compatible with one of the leading cryptocurrencies.
I was recently reading Mary Holland’s excellent 2012 review of U.S. vaccine court decisions (“Compulsory vaccination, the Constitution, and the hepatitis B mandate for infants and young children,” Yale Journal of Health Policy, Law, and Ethics) and I froze and thought, “Why are we calling the injectibles that Bill Gates and his colleagues are promoting ‘vaccines’? Are they really vaccines?”
Most people are familiar with how Bill Gates made and kept his fortune. He acquired an operating system that was loaded into your computer. It was widely rumored that the U.S. intelligence agencies had a back door. The simultaneous and sudden explosion of computer viruses then made it necessary to regularly update your operating system, allowing Gates and his associates to regularly add whatever they wanted into your software. One of my more knowledgeable software developers once said to me in the 1990s—when Microsoft really took off—”Microsoft makes really sh***y software.” But of course, the software was not really their business. Their business was accessing and aggregating all of your data. Surveillance capitalism was underway.
The Department of Justice launched an antitrust case against Microsoft in 1998, just as the $21 trillion started to disappear from the U.S. government—no doubt with the help of specially designed software and IT systems. During the settlement negotiations that permitted Gates to keep his fortune, he started the Gates Foundation and his new philanthropy career. I laughed the other day when my tweet of one of Robert Kennedy Jr.’s articles from Children’s Health Defense—describing the gruesome technology Gates is hoping to roll out through “injectibles”—inspired a response: “Well, I guess he is finally fulfilling his side of his antitrust settlement.”
If you look at what is being created and proposed in the way of injectibles, it looks to me like these technological developments are organized around several potential goals.
The first and most important goal is the replacement of the existing U.S. dollar currency system used by the general population with a digital transaction system that can be combined with digital identification and tracking. The goal is to end currencies as we know them and replace them with an embedded credit card system that can be integrated with various forms of control, potentially including mind control. “De-dollarization” is threatening the dollar global reserve system. The M1 and M2 money supply have increased in the double digits over the last year as a result of a new round of quantitative easing by the Fed. The reason we have not entered into hyperinflation is because of the dramatic drop in money velocity occasioned by converting Covid-19 into an engineered shutdown of significant economic activity and the bankrupting of millions of small and medium-sized businesses. The managers of the dollar system are under urgent pressure to use new technology to centralize economic flows and preserve their control of the financial system.
Just as Gates installed an operating system in our computers, now the vision is to install an operating system in our bodies and use “viruses” to mandate an initial installation followed by regular updates.
Now I appreciate why Gates and his colleagues want to call these technologies “vaccines.” If they can persuade the body politic that injectible credit cards or injectible surveillance trackers or injectable brain-machine interface nanotechnologies are “vaccines,” then they can enjoy the protection of a century or more of legal decisions and laws that support their efforts to mandate what they want to do. As well, they can insist that U.S. taxpayers fund, through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, the damages for which they would otherwise be liable as a result of their experiments—and violations of the Nuremberg Code and numerous civil and criminal laws—on the general population. The scheme is quite clever. Get the general population to go along with defining their new injectible high-tech concoctions as “vaccines,” and they can slip them right into the vaccine pipeline. No need to worry about the disease and death that will result from something this unnatural delivered this quickly. The freedom from liability guaranteed by the PREP Act through the declaration of an emergency—and the ability to keep the emergency going through contact tracing—can protect them from liability for thousands if not millions of deaths and disabilities likely to follow such human experimentation. Ideally, they can just blame the deaths on a virus.
A colleague once told me how Webster’s Dictionary came about. Webster said that the way the evildoers would change the Constitution was not by amending it but by changing the definitions—a legal sneak attack.
I believe that Gates and the pharma and biotech industries are literally reaching to create a global control grid by installing digital interface components and hooking us up to Microsoft’s new $10 billion JEDI cloud at the Department of Defense as well as Amazon’s multibillion cloud contract for the CIA that is shared with all U.S. intelligence agencies. Why do you think President Trump has the military organizing to stockpile syringes for vaccines? It is likely because the military is installing the roaming operating system for integration into their cloud. Remember—the winner in the AI superpower race is the AI system with access to the most data. Accessing your body and my body on a 24/7 basis generates a lot of data. If the Chinese do it, the Americans will want to do it, too. In fact, the rollout of human “operating systems” may be one of the reasons why the competition around Huawei and 5G telecommunications has become so fractious. As Frank Clegg, former President of Microsoft Canada has warned us, 5G was developed by the Israelis for crowd control.
In the face of global “de-dollarization,” this is how the dollar syndicate can assert the central control it needs to maintain and extend its global reserve currency financial power. This includes protecting its leadership from the civil and criminal liability related to explosive levels of financial and health care fraud in recent decades.
Which brings me back to you and me. Why are we calling these formulations “vaccines”? If I understand the history of case law, vaccines, in legal terms, are medicine. Intentional heavy metal poisoning is not medicine. Injectible surveillance components are not medicine. Injectible credit cards are not medicine. An injectible brain-machine interface is not a medicine. Legal and financial immunity for insurance companies does not create human immunity from disease.
We need to stop allowing these concoctions to be referred to by a word that the courts and the general population define and treat as medicine and protect from legal and financial liability.
The perpetrators of this fraud are trying a very neat trick—one that will help them go much faster and cancel out a lot of risk—at our expense. I understand why they are doing it.
What I don’t understand is why we are helping them. Why are we acquiescing in calling these bizarre and deeply dangerous concoctions “vaccines”? Whatever they are, they are not medicine.
So, what shall our naming convention be? What name shall we give to the relevant poisons, neurologically damaging metals, and digital shackles?
Whatever we call them, I know one thing. THEY ARE NOT MEDICINE, WHICH MEANS THEY SURE ARE NOT VACCINES.
Forrest Maready is producing a movie that might be of interest in these unsettling times.
Right now we all need to be questioning what is going on and to look for and look at the bigger picture. We as individuals can only be safe and saved and healthy if we all work together to uncover the lies and bring to the light the dark agendas that are threatening our sanity, our economy, our neighborhoods, our ways of life, and our own ways of thinking.
…. Before we begin please FORGET NOT THE WORDS OF:
DR. EDWARD L. BERNAYS, the Founding Father of Public Relations: “We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of… If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without them knowing it… …The conscious and intellectual manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in a democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”
FORGET NOT THE WORDS OF:
JOHN F. KENNEDY’S speech before the American Newspaper Publishers Association on April 27, 1961 (some two years before his assassination):
“We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence —-on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of election, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system that has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations… …Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, nor rumor printed, no secret revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match.”
NOW, As you read ahead I ask that you remember and always consider the following very important questions, ones that I pray will never unring from your mind or anyone’s consciousness.
… Do you want to live in a world where you don’t want to stand close to someone or dance with them, shake their hand or hug them, strike up a conversation, express your most heartfelt care for someone who’s lost a loved one, injured themselves and experienced a loss, reach out and tenderly hug them or wipe away their tears because you’re afraid of getting sick?
Do you want to live in a world where you see everyone as an enemy carrier of some illness that you’re afraid of getting sick from or are compelled and forbidden by draconian laws to show open and loving affection?
“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty or safety.” – Benjamin Franklin
If you’re an adult or parent, what will you tell your friends, lover, spouse, children or grandchild about this turning point in history? I’m sorry, I acted like a coward and complied with the manipulating lies and propaganda that I was falsely fed and foolishly believed by authority figures whom I delusionally chose to believe had my best interest at heart.
Yes, I sort of sensed I was being manipulated and lied to and yet I forgot the axiom of following the money trail back to the criminals who would most profit from something like this.
“In every age, it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both to deceive and overawe the People.” — Eugene Victor Debs, Voices of a People’s History of the United States
And yes, I acted like a coward, I never put up a fight for my basic freedoms, those of my family, my friends and neighbors, and that of humanity. Yes, I chose to comply with the cruel and indifferent orders of the Cabal/Deep State/Illuminate/Kazarian Mafia…etc… orders that stripped me of my basic constitutional rights and threatened me, my family, and my loved ones and instead I voluntarily choose to comply like one of the millions of other cattle who were herded into giving up their freedoms and liberties and resigned myself, all I loved, and cared about to poverty, confinement or a detainment/concentration camps? Yes, this is what I did.
“For PEOPLE to rule themselves in a REPUBLIC, they must have virtue; for a TYRANT to rule in a TYRANNY, he must use FEAR.”— William J. Federer
OR, Will you choose and will you help lead humanity to collectively awaken from this cowardice dream that presently allows misguided bullies to bioweapon humanity, engineer and inflict wars around the world, propagandize, imprison, endanger, victimize and/or harm ourselves, our families and/or the people of our world …WILL YOU/WE RISE-UP TO REALIE, PROCLAIM AND EXPRESS YOUR/OUR GREATEST HERO WITHIN AND BE KNOWN AS THE GLADIATORS OF THE HEART…WHO LIVED BY THE FAITH OF LOVING TRUTH AND CHOSE TO ACT IN TURN, WE WERE DESTINED TO BE, OUR TRUEST, MOST POWERFUL, SOVEREIGN AND LOVING SELF?
Let us all collectively and courageously rise up to proclaim, Never on My Watch, Never on My Shift …I WILL NEVER NOW AND FOREVER MORE allow any tyrant to bully, harm, oppress, and rob me, my family, or anyone, of their natural-born freedom to be their best and live their dreams come true…because I know in my heart of hearts that Love Will Prevail and that Love Will Always Win!
LET US PROCLAIM, NOT ON MY WATCH, NOT ON MY SHIFT, EVER AGAIN!!!
Now that I’ve stepped down off of my soapbox, let us face the glaring reality of the propagandized Covid-19 pandemic. Perhaps like yourself, and if you’ve been doing the research I have, you’ve watched and noted numerous Youtube videos with huge viewership numbers in the millions that differ substantially from that of the mainstream media’s narrative about how Covid-19 is playing out locally, within our state, nation, and world.
These videos are by smart, well-educated, thoughtfully articulate leaders and credible; various Doctors, Scientists, Nurses, Thought-leaders, Attorneys and more, who are attempting to get the word out/whistle-blow on the various aspects of fraud about the pandemic and non-sensical, irrational, incongruent realities about what is substantiated by hard facts and/or science that they’ve been educated, field-trained on and know to be true based on various medical scenarios and realities they’re dealing with, specifically regarding people’s health issues and the lies, wrongfully directives and protocols they are being forced to comply with and by higher supervising authorities.
In truth these brave and heroic people are putting everything on the line… their career, reputation, and the primary sources of income to boldly and courageously face this global Psyops and hoax to make sure the facts are known and with integrity, call things out as they really are, different from the false script they’re being forced to read. In other words, from the perspective of these heroic few and from their world view: rocks are hard and water is wet. In their world, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck then it’s likely a duck, rather than a cow.
Yes, like you, I’ve noted almost all of these whistleblowing videos have a common theme that traces things back to the old saying, follow the money and who benefits most. You see most people don’t know there is a massive chessboard game for power and control going on here. And the few who are aware of this, a very small percentage don’t understand know that this is a multi-layered chessboard game.
One related and important whistleblowing video that shows how the Cabal is calling the shots and playing a huge role in shaping the perverted perceptional lens of humanity is subconsciously been and remains programmed through the Music, TV, and Film industries run by Hollywood.
The documentary film “Out of Shadows” blew the lid off of the Cabal, the CIA, Hollywood, Sex Honey pots (like the Playboy mansion), and pedophilia rings around the world. This film went totally viral in a matter of days and exceeded several million views. Then, almost immediately, it was taken down by Youtube and later showed only a few hundred thousand views.
He likely didn’t know, interestingly, that Dr. Edward Bernay’s, Founding Father of Public Relations, a clear Rothchild/Illuminati, etc… agent, lived in Boston. Remember Edwards’ quote from above? Yes, Dr. Shiva’s videos were also taken down along with so many more.
These videos are being taken down by the big and deadly-mind-manipulating-spiders/spider web of the Cabal: Youtube, Facebook, Google, Twitter, all mainstream media, and others who intentionally alter video viewership count numbers downwardly in order to minimize and perceptional bias the collective consciousness.
Ultimately, video takedowns or the manipulation the viewership counts is the way the Cabal attempts to diminish the credibility of such people/videos and thus slow down the progress of humanity waking up.
Yes, the above mentioned evil entities and the soulless trolls who work for them and who orchestrate these manipulating tactics are only an arm of much greater Villians who pull the black-magic strings on these puppets who attempt to implement the full-spectrum dominance of the Cabal. To understand more go to:
You see the Cabal, as I’ve written about so many times, wants people to stay dumb, remain asleep, to continue watching mindless TV programs or sporting events and be persistently distracted from ever thinking, especially critical thinking, enough to put their big boy or girl pants and deduce and/or more importantly realize …
Hey, what I’m watching now is drool bucket stupid, it is not helping, empowering, teaching me and/or inspiring me to be, do or have anything that I know is spiritually or morally right, good and for the betterment of humankind and so why, am I allowing myself and/or my precious children to watch brutally violent cage fighting, ice-hockey, boxing, vulgar and/or sexually explicit content of any kind…
…and if I was to take my attention off of this foolish content and/or note the commercials/sponsors that are paying to advertise on these type of shows and promise to myself I’ll never ever buy their products or services again, maybe even write that company’s President a letter about my thoughts…maybe then funding for these shows would dry up, they would go away and perhaps be replaced by life-affirming content that helped to inspire the human spirit.
“A filmmaker has the unrestricted privilege of haranguing an audience for two-hour stretches–the chance to influence public thinking for good or for evil…“It is, therefore, his responsibility to emphasize the positive qualities of humanity by showing the triumph of the individual over adversities.” – Frank Capra, legendary filmmaker of “Its A Wonderful Life.”

So, now, the question is turning to what will the new normal look like once the coronavirus lockdown and the dehumanizing media virus ends? Will I be me again? Will you be you? Will we all be human again?
We know things could / will be vastly different. Will they be worse or better?
Two things are certain. Plagues drive change. We have changed. We just haven’t revealed how we have changed… yet. But, now is the time to decide and to choose who we are.
On one present path, we will eat the fruit of a quantum/digital future, which means more global brainwashing about how inessential we are, more techno tyranny, more dehumanizing A.I and a lot more authoritarian politics used to contain, track and transform the ‘dirty’, ‘dangerous’, ‘infected’ human body and turn us into faceless humans in a contactless world. In this new ‘normal’ you will never look at your face and body the same. In fact, in order to survive, you will begin covering it not just with masks, gloves, and other PPE, but merging it with ‘smart’ devices to ‘survive’. This technology will make you an open book. The lockdown will never end. Your liberties will never return. We will be prisoners of our devices.

On another path a counter current emerges. We will rise spiritually. We will elevate our consciousness and creativity; our humanness. We will demand freedom, rights and privacy. We will strive for purity of heart and soul, righteousness, and excellence, praising the living eff out of each other for our bravery, kindness and gratitude for sticking together and getting through this. We will exert and exude compassion. We will say thank you to all who have continued to work while we have been at home. We will build resilience by letting everyone know we are here for each other.In so doing we will unlock the mysterious powers within us the powers that be seek to stamp out.
The Rainbow Light Body is the light within that can illuminate our soul. Made of compassionate acts, it can activate our immune system.
Which will it be?
Anguish or amazement?
Tyranny or freedom?
The choice is up to us.
Now is the time to choose.
THE QUANTUM BEAST’S WAR ON HUMANNESS
No one (save for the planners) could have foreseen that, overnight, an “unseen enemy” would have us forsaking our humanness, forbidding trading hugs, touches, handshakes and other ancient forms of human greeting in exchange for enforced distancing and fear. Yet, here we are, being socially engineered …or brainwashed… into treating each other as “other”, as a “threat”, and an “enemy”, instead of friend and fellow human. We are biologically wired to touch, to socialize and to be together. Now, this is suddenly being rewired?
With eyebrow raising speed this unseen enemy, “that could be inside each of us”, has taken over our world. Humans could scheme 9/11. But this is a whole other level of orchestrated evil.
It’s machine like.
It feels like the work of an alien entity.
Some even believe it is the work of the Beast of the Book of Revelation, a demon that comes from out of the abyss (or the sea) to challenge the righteous before the Second Coming. I know I do. Especially the third Beast that comes out of the earth (Revelation 13:11). This beast is called “the False prophet” (Revelation 16:13). He makes an image of the Beast and forces people to worship it (Revelation 13:11-17).
According to James Lovelock, who coined the term “Gaia hypothesis”, and revived the ancient idea that Earth is a conscious entity, this Beast is A.I., which came out of Gaia as a way to challenge humanity’s decimation of our planet. As I wrote in my article about Lovelock’s theory:
“Can you imagine an artificially intelligent ‘Gaia bot’, a humanoid and sentient, but synthetic, organism with a fake celebrity face, emerging from the collective consciousness of AI and speaking for Gaia? Can you imagine this bot running the world and controlling human behavior in the name of saving the Earth? Can you imagine billions of people lining up to receive a neural implant that will interface them with the Gaia bot or face elimination?
At least in a scary vision of eco-mystics and AI-mystics where humans merge with machines to ‘save Gaia’.”
Of course, this merging is not theoretical. It is happening right before our eyes. Now, thanks to Covid-19, the Chinese virus, the pace of this merger is accelerating. Lovelock shockingly predicted this merger, or even a take-over or elimination of humanity by robots, two years ago.
If one it is at all interested in ‘saving Gaia’, and humanity, it is time to listen to him.
As I will discuss momentarily, this Beast is the product of the Quantum revolution that began over a hundred years ago and has given us the surveillance society that has far surpassed George Orwell’s worst nightmare.
The coronavirus is just one of the weapons, along with the media, A.I., transhumanism, virtual reality and 5G, that the Beast is using to dehumanize humanity.
It knows that One Greater Than It is on the way. In order to meet this being humanity must rise. The Beast seeks to lock us from attaining our organic ascension potential and herd us into a virtual world run by its algorithms.
The media arm of the Beast is manipulating you into believing that human contact is dangerous. It wants us to accept a paranoid postcoronavirus world that is “touchless,” “contactless” and “faceless”.
Will we allow showing our face in public to invite shame?
Will we allow eye to eye (soul to soul) contact to be considered suspicious?
Will we allow condemnation for talking in public (the virus, they say, is transmitted via spit)?
If we allow it, public skin-to-skin contact will be eliminated. Ironically, human touch stimulates the release of neurochemicals which facilitate human relationships. Touch lowers the body’s levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, thus enhancing immune system functioning. Social distancing intended to keep us healthy will only make us sicker in the end. But that is point.
The Beast knows:
No touch. No humanity.
Know touch. Know humanity.
The no touch business stems from the quantum Beast’s desire to transform humanity into a post-human digital being. We are already seeing a major shift away from your “unhealthy,” “dangerous” biological self to your “healthy” virtual online data self. More and more we’ll be putting on VR glasses and polishing their cartoon avatar bodies.
If we allow it, everything will soon have censors, including our bodies. We will wear them on our bodies at first. Stand too close to me and my buzzer will go off. Eventually, they will go in the skin. They are part of what I term the Skingularity or the meshing of our flesh with A.I. and other transhuman technologies. Skin is the target.
If we allow it, Bill Gates’ Satanic tattoo will let everyone know if I am “safe” or not. You will not be able to hide from this technology.
Mark of the Beast Zuckerberg’s Fakebook will make sure you are ignorant about the latest science, ruthlessly censoring any light from entering the Beast’s dark world.
Apple and Google will track your every movement “to keep you safe.” (They pledge to shut down coronavirus tracing when pandemic ends. And we are supposed to trust them?)
These are just a few of the dystopian effects of the coronavirus that we can see. The ones we can’t see are the ones we need to worry about. I will discuss these momentarily.
The choices we make today will change humanity not just in the next five or ten years, but forever. It is up to us to decide if the Beast wins. If it does it will be cataclysmic for humanity.
The choice begins with deciding if we will we choose to go contactless and faceless or if we choose contact and sharing human emotion?
C IS FOR COMPASSION
On the upside, the pandemic (or plannedemic) has shown us that we, truly, are all one. We have been shown how our fates are linked. The good, bad and ugly are all one family now.
We have also been shown that one person can affect every other being. What one does affects all others.
This is the hidden power.
If instead of spreading fear, the media had spent countless media hours in teaching compassion our world would be greatly empowered.
We must do our part to insure the human future. We must exercise compassion over separation in order to ignite our power.
It is time for us to rise and move our compassion and human needles.
With hand on heart or offering the Namaste greeting, it is time to activate our connection between one another and the power of human compassion.
THE QUANTUM FACTOR
Something the coronavirus has shown us is that we are all fundamentally linked in an intricate web of relationships and interconnectedness. Our basic oneness has been demonstrated to us. Look after yourself. Look after us all.
This is a quantum concept.
While we have been forced into house arrest / quarantining / coccooning, some stunning announcements were made in Quantum Land that pertain to the dehumanizing “contactless” New World/Final Frontier to which we are awakening.
These announcements involve the plan to merge our bodies with A.I. (The Skingularity) as part of what’s being called the Second Quantum Revolution, the globally accepted term for the economic/technological/religious revolution being unveiled before our eyes in order to make trillions of dollars.
In actuality, the Second Quantum Revolution is the war of the ages led by the Beast, the “invisible enemy” that is attacking and manipulating humanity, especially the human body.
Unless we comprehend this the events in our world will be a blur. Ignorance will not be a defense.
Here is your guide.
Quantum technologies make use of our ability to detect and manipulate single quantum objects, such as atoms, photons or electrons.
Though we only discovered the atom, and learned to unleash its power a little over one hundred years ago, our primitive understanding of quantum physics has brought us to the stark realization that the quantum realm out of which our reality emerges is shockingly bizarre, even alien. I say alien because the true nature of reality is unknown to the human mind.
Two things we know for sure are:
At the quantum level, light can either be observed as a stream of particles OR as an electromagnetic wave. A particle only becomes a particle and a wave only becomes a wave when someone is looking at it. We cannot observe something without changing what we see. Our mind, our intent, alters the outcome.
At the quantum level, reality does not exist if you are not looking at it. Einstein showed that everything consists of partcles of energy (quanta). Quantum mechanics says there are no ‘things’ out there, only happenings, events and interactions. This means we ‘somethings’ are actually nothing. More, nothing can exist on its own. Each depends on the existence of other particles for its existence. This is the metaphysical law of Christ: “Love thy neighbor as your self”.
Even the greatest minds contemplating quantum mechanics had a hard time accepting the radical view that nothing exists. They have no clue how such a reality works or how it could work.
To be frank, we know jack shit about how this works.
Despite this the first quantum revolution (1905-2005) transformed the world into the highly connected, more and more authoritarian technology-driven ‘smart’ Beast challenged society we see today. In other words, no quantum revolution, no screwed up world. Know quantum. Know screwed up world.
The first quantum revolution brought the nightmare reality unfolding around us. (That is, if we choose to see and participate in this reality.)
Whenever you use your debit card, smart phone, GPS you are using first wave quantum technology. Every technology from the laser, transistor, iphone, internet, Facebook, 5G, the smart grid, AI and the entire virtual Internet of Things, aka the Quantum Brain, and everything else the total surveillance society is desperately trying to merge our bodies with is based on the discoveries of the first quantum revolution.
Now, we are on the verge of a second quantum revolution that will introduce even wilder, and more oppressive, never-before-seen (‘alien’) technological capabilities.
The second quantum revolution is the one we want to watch out for.
Super-technologies such as nanotechnology, quantum computers, quantum information processing, and others will soon shape our daily lives…as we merge our bodies with A.I. and string ourselves up as puppets on the Internet of Things, along with billions upon billions of other things (like your toaster, microwave oven, car).
Second wave quantum technologies will enable you to control those devices by thought alone.
All of this will be possible with quantum computers that can do in 200 seconds what would take 10,000 years using a normal supercomputer.
Computers traditionally use bits to process information. But quantum computing depends on bits that have properties of quantum physics – called qubits.
Traditional computing bits are either “0” or “1,” but qubits can be in both states at the same time, a quantum property called superposition.
Another quantum property, called entanglement, allows for qubits to be quantum mechanically connected to other qubits in the system.
As a result, quantum computers leverage entanglement and superposition to solve previously impossible computational problems.
Dwave Systems is one builder of these machines. Its founder, Geordie Rose, likens them to the altar of an alien God and claims they come from the Nephilim. They will enable scientists do things that seem like a fantasy only a few years ago.
With this technology all our memories, our lives themselves, can be transferred to a quantum brain that dreams simulated realities like we imagine eating ice cream.
Proponents say we could live forever in these simulated realities. Quantum dreamers say these never before imagined worlds will be way better than this one. As quantum beings we would be not just closer to the gods in our capability. We would be gods ourselves.
Leading the way in this second wave of the Quantum revolution is China. The U.S. is on its heels. In fact, the two countries are now locked in an undeclared winner take all Quantum War.
The first true use of quantum computing will most likely not be a commercial use like creating some mindblowing virtual reality ascension experience, but rather a cyber-warfare use by nation-states.
This is what everything presently happening in our world is actually about.
UHURA, OPEN A SUB-SPACE CHANNEL
Quantum mechanics and quantum entanglement challenges our most basic, common-sense assumptions about our lives.
You know that the moon exists even when you’re not looking at it — that’s realism. But, according to the theoretical physicist, John Wheeler reality is made of information which is created by observation, and that means that the moon exists only when it is observed.
2) Regarding causality (cause and effect), we know and take it for granted that “if you flick a light switch on, the bulb will illuminate”. But quantum entanglement is independent of time and space. In fact in Quantum mechaincs, the distinction between cause and effect is not made at the most fundamental level, so time symmetric systems can be viewed as causal or retro-causal. Retrocausality is a concept where the effect precedes its cause in time. And that means that “if I illuminate a bulb, a flick of light will be switched on”.
3) Moreover, thanks to a hard limit on the speed of light, if you flick a switch on now, the related effect could not occur instantly a million light-years away according to the locality. But in Quantum entanglement information transfer “breaks” the speed of light.
In conclusion, these 3 principles of causality, locality, and realism break down in the quantum realm, with Quantum entanglement being the most famous spooky example.
The bottomline is our world is not anything like we think it is.
Before the first Quantum Revolution we were God’s favored creature. Now, we’re merely data. We are just information, bits and bytes, that can, and should be, cut, copied, pasted, augmented at the whim of scientists.
In other words, the Q revolution brought with it that our biological bodies are just a collection of atoms, molecules and energy in motion. We are just matter. And, nothing personal, we don’t really matter.
This dehumanizing mindset opened the door to our merger wtih A.I., big data, and the Beast.
If you are just information then there is no reason why you can’t be copied and pasted into another matrix or reality. There is also no reason why you wouldn’t take the Mark of the Beast.
In the quantum world matter and energy are interconvertible. Matter exists in various energy states. These energy states are temperature-dependent. The higher the temperature, the greater the energy. For example, water boils when it is heated to higher temperatures. This increases the disorder in the molecules as they are energized.
Think of us entering the higher frequency world. As the frequency rises our bodies will change and reorganize.
In this case, we will be changing from bilogical beings to bio dots or biology blurred with technology to ‘higher frequency’ quantum beings living in a simulated reality.
Our sudden shift to the virtual world, accelerated by the response to the coronavirus, is a first giant leap away from our idenitying with the organic physical world and to identifying with the unseen world of virtual reality.
The next step is for us to drop our physical bodies and live permanently in the simulations dreamed up by the quantum computers.
As I wrote in Echoes in the Garden : A.I., Aliens, Simulation Theory and the Last Footprints of Woke Humanity, we are beginning to realize that the belief that we live in a simulation is also the motivating philosophy of the techno masters running our world…or rather whose out of control A.I. and computers are doing so. This philosophy is the source of the dehumanizing movement sweeping the planet. As Big Tech / A.I. and Global Government merge we will drop our race, gender, nationality and religious identifications and become “earthlings.” Soon, we won’t even be human at all. We will merge with A.I. and become Transhuman, or drop our physical bodies entirely and become post human cartoons living in a simulated reality (seriously!).
One scientist, Nick Bostrom, maintains that we are about to ’stack’ a new simulation on top of the existing one in which we live. Some of us will migrate to this new world.
According to Bostrom’s theory this is the end game of human evolution and the end of the game. That is the Simgularity.
Singularity theorists maintain this will occur sometime between now and 2030.
Audiences used to think I was exaggerting when I said big gov and big data thinks of us not as mushy, spiritual humans, each of whose life has purpose and significant meaning, but as just data or matter to be manipulated for cash.
Enter robotic human clones into which you can copy the contents of your brain.
Enter holographic avatars existing in the new simulated realities created by quantum supercomputers.
Exit real world.
Enter ‘ascended’ digital world.

As I said, we are being brainwashed into thinking that our bodies are now dangerous to ourselves and to each other. Ewww. Don’t touch me. In fact, don’t come near me.
Coronavirus is synonymous with a “no contact” society. If we allow it, words like “touchless,” “contactless” will be hallmarks of our interactions.These are quantum words. This shift is a quantum one.
How long this will last? Will our children and grandchildren now be raised to fear human contact and live disconnected from the rest of the world?
From now on or at least until the Beast puts its mark on everyone and we are free to enter normal socieity.
Our shift to contactless communication is a hallmark of the Second Quantum revolution.
Just as the first quantum revolution drove the movement to wash God out of our brains and to think of ourselves as just information the second will drive us apart and will be characterized by interaction without interaction, or contactless contact.
In the old ‘dumb and dirty’ world we used to think that for communication to occur there must be some form of interaction. This would be through direct touch or through some form of carrier, like the telephone or the internet.
Now, with our increased understanding of the quantum realm and of quantum entanglement it seems that particles can be entangled without any contact at all…ever.
Welcome to the clean new “no touch” world.
Which brings us to the aforementioned announcements.
The first announcement involves quantum entanglement. This mysterious phenomenon occurs when two particles become eternally linked, and whatever happens to one simultaneously affects the other, regardless if they are next door, across the galaxy or even in another galaxy billions of light years away.
Here is an example of this.
Clare and I have documented the ancient belief that icons of Christ or the Tibetan guru, Padmasambhava, can transmit their presence to us through a painting. In these traditions images of both avatars transfiguring into light are viewed as sacred mirrors or gateways to the unseen realm.
This is a quantum principle.
When we look at a painting it is brought to life in our imagination. We are entangled with it. The image is now inside us, in our mind.
Simultaneously, say the icon makers, when we engage an icon of the transfiguration we are in Christ at that moment. We and Christ are identical, but not.
Something of the presence of Christ has been transferred to us. As our photons are knotted with Christ’s he can transmit this presence to us through the image and we can enter his space through the image.
Now, imagine Christ transmitting his presence to you without the painting inbetween and you and Christ becoming identical. That is quantum entanglement.
How is this possible? Well, let’s just say the universe is far kookier than we realize.
With our understanding of the quantum realm we big brains have just graduated from knowing jack shit to the basic level of understanding of the universe possessed by the avatars and angels of the world’s sacred traditions. Cosmic kindergarten is over. We are now in first grade.
Instead of Avatars beaming light and love or transferring Christ Consciousness to us, just imagine something like this being possible in terms of mundane data transfer.
What if instead of sending something through the internet, and risking it being hijacked by some government or corporation, you could just drag/drop and it gets there without dragging and dropping. If the sender and receiver are entangled the transfer is instant.
This is what is coming sometime between now and 2030.
It will lead to the creation of new types of computers with god-like processing power and a new version of the internet that will make our lives seem primitive. Our children and grandchildren will look back at us fifty years from now and wonder how it was possible for us to live this backward way.
Back in December 2019 physicists at the University of Bristol were able to demonstrate quantum teleportation between two computer chips for the first time. Information was transferred between the chips without any contact via quantum entanglement.
Also in February scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago revealed that they had achieved a quantum entanglement over a 52-mile (83.7 kilometer) quantum-loop network in the Chicago suburbs.()
Besides taking us into a Star Trek reality — scientists believe that quantum entanglement could have applications in quantum computing, data transmission, and even teleportation or beaming — this feat is an important milestone in the creation of the quantum internet, a global mind infinitely more powerful than the one that is presently controlling us.
July 2019 In an incredible first, scientists have captured the world’s first actual photo of quantum entanglement. The image was captured by physicists at the University of Glasgow in Scotland. This particular photo shows entanglement between two photons – two light particles. They’re interacting and – for a brief moment – sharing physical states.
Quantum internet developers envision satellites continually broadcasting entangled photons down to earth surface. Two people who want to communicate will share a pair of quantum particles that are entangled. Then, through quantum operations, the sender can send any quantum information to the receiver. This collection of shared entanglement between pairs of people all over the world will constitute the quantum internet.
They are going to rain entangled particles on us and turn everyone on the planet into one giant brain?
So what they are saying is this is a further evolution of our bodies as repeaters, relays in a network or continuum of an alien consciousness.
On March 26, 2020 Microsoft published a patent for “Cryptocurrency System Using Body Activity Data”, a system designed to harness human energy, including brain waves, for cryptocurrency mining.
That’s right. Microsoft wants to read your mind and reward you when you look at an advertisement or use a certain internet service, the patent explains.Will it punish you if you don’t?
Instead of massive computation work required by some conventional cryptocurrency systems, data generated based on the body activity of the user can be a proof-of-work, and therefore a user can solve the computationally difficult problem unconsciously,” the patent states.
The mining system would involve hooking up a device, like a smart watch, to various sensors on the body that detect the activity required of the user to generate the cryptocurrency. As we know, the “wearable” plan is short term. The plan is to go inside the body.
Possible sensors used to track the activity include MRI scanners, heat cameras, and heart rate and infrared sensors.
The patent lists 28 different concepts for the way the system could be used to mine cryptocurrency, including tasks like browsing social media, engaging with an artificial intelligence chat bot or visiting a website.
Monitoring “body fluid flow” and “organ activity and movement” are also on the table. Obviously, Microsoft sees huge opportunities is harvesting energy from porn site visitor.
Microsoft Technology Licensing applied for this patent in June 2019 and it was published under the number “WO2020060606A1.”
That’s WO-2020-060606 A1
In a Q world where #WWG1WGA (“where we go one, we go all”), is readily decoded, “WO” (shorthand for World Intellectual Property Organization), 060606 was easily read as patent 666.
666 is, of course, the number of the Beast.
Our bodies will be used to mine bitcoin for the Devil?
No, say Beast supporters. The fact that this patent is numbered 666, the number of the Devil, is just a coincidence.
Everything on earth will be working as one entity. Where goes one, we go all because we are entangled via quantum technology.
Is this what we want?
People say the ancient gods created us as slaves to mine gold. Do we want our descendants to have a mythology that says the Q gods created our bodies to mine cryptocurrency?
The bottom line is the Quantum merger is coming. The non-quantum speaking public is blissfully unaware of the Beast’s potential.
We are being dragged into its world by scientists whose chief aim is to serve the Beast.
Quantum physics says we have a choice in how we view things out here.
It is clearly time for each of us to choose our path.
“THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated”
― Thomas Paine, The Crisis
Who could have predicted that 70 years after Orwell typed the final words to his dystopian novel, “He loved Big Brother,” we would fail to heed his warning and come to love Big Brother.
“To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free, when men are different from one another and do not live alone— to a time when truth exists and what is done cannot be undone: From the age of uniformity, from the age of solitude, from the age of Big Brother, from the age of doublethink — greetings!”—George Orwell
1984 portrays a global society of total control in which people are not allowed to have thoughts that in any way disagree with the corporate state. There is no personal freedom, and advanced technology has become the driving force behind a surveillance-driven society. Snitches and cameras are everywhere. People are subject to the Thought Police, who deal with anyone guilty of thought crimes. The government, or “Party,” is headed by Big Brother who appears on posters everywhere with the words: “Big Brother is watching you.”
We have arrived, way ahead of schedule, into the dystopian future dreamed up by not only Orwell but also such fiction writers as Aldous Huxley, Margaret Atwood and Philip K. Dick.
“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”―George Orwell
Much like Orwell’s Big Brother in 1984, the government and its corporate spies now watch our every move. Much like Huxley’s A Brave New World, we are churning out a society of watchers who “have their liberties taken away from them, but … rather enjoy it, because they [are] distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing.” Much like Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, the populace is now taught to “know their place and their duties, to understand that they have no real rights but will be protected up to a point if they conform, and to think so poorly of themselves that they will accept their assigned fate and not rebel or run away.”
And in keeping with Philip K. Dick’s darkly prophetic vision of a dystopian police state—which became the basis for Steven Spielberg’s futuristic thriller Minority Report—we are now trapped in a world in which the government is all-seeing, all-knowing and all-powerful, and if you dare to step out of line, dark-clad police SWAT teams and pre-crime units will crack a few skulls to bring the populace under control.
What once seemed futuristic no longer occupies the realm of science fiction.
Incredibly, as the various nascent technologies employed and shared by the government and corporations alike—facial recognition, iris scanners, massive databases, behavior prediction software, and so on—are incorporated into a complex, interwoven cyber network aimed at tracking our movements, predicting our thoughts and controlling our behavior, the dystopian visions of past writers is fast becoming our reality.
“People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”―George Orwell
The courts have shredded the Fourth Amendment’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures. In fact, SWAT teams battering down doors without search warrants and FBI agents acting as a secret police that investigate dissenting citizens are common occurrences in contemporary America. And bodily privacy and integrity have been utterly eviscerated by a prevailing view that Americans have no rights over what happens to their bodies during an encounter with government officials, who are allowed to search, seize, strip, scan, spy on, probe, pat down, taser, and arrest any individual at any time and for the slightest provocation.
“The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”―George Orwell, Animal Farm
We are increasingly ruled by multi-corporations wedded to the police state.
What many fail to realize is that the government is not operating alone. It cannot. The government requires an accomplice. Thus, the increasingly complex security needs of the massive federal government, especially in the areas of defense, surveillance and data management, have been met within the corporate sector, which has shown itself to be a powerful ally that both depends on and feeds the growth of governmental overreach.
In fact, Big Tech wedded to Big Government has become Big Brother, and we are now ruled by the Corporate Elite whose tentacles have spread worldwide. For example, USA Today reports that five years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the homeland security business was booming to such an extent that it eclipsed mature enterprises like movie-making and the music industry in annual revenue. This security spending to private corporations such as Google, Amazon, Microsoft and others is forecast to exceed $1 trillion in the near future.
The government now has at its disposal technological arsenals so sophisticated and invasive as to render any constitutional protections null and void. Spearheaded by the NSA, which has shown itself to care little to nothing for constitutional limits or privacy, the “security/industrial complex”—a marriage of government, military and corporate interests aimed at keeping Americans under constant surveillance—has come to dominate the government and our lives. At three times the size of the CIA, constituting one third of the intelligence budget and with its own global spy network to boot, the NSA has a long history of spying on Americans, whether or not it has always had the authorization to do so.
Money, power, control. There is no shortage of motives fueling the convergence of mega-corporations and government. But who is paying the price? The American people, of course.
Orwell understood what many Americans, caught up in their partisan flag-waving, are still struggling to come to terms with: that there is no such thing as a government organized for the good of the people. Even the best intentions among those in government inevitably give way to the desire to maintain power and control over the citizenry at all costs. As Orwell explains:
The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know what no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.
“The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it.” ― George Orwell
How do you change the way people think? You start by changing the words they use.
In totalitarian regimes—a.k.a. police states—where conformity and compliance are enforced at the end of a loaded gun, the government dictates what words can and cannot be used. In countries where the police state hides behind a benevolent mask and disguises itself as tolerance, the citizens censor themselves, policing their words and thoughts to conform to the dictates of the mass mind.
Dystopian literature shows what happens when the populace is transformed into mindless automatons. In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, reading is banned and books are burned in order to suppress dissenting ideas, while televised entertainment is used to anesthetize the populace and render them easily pacified, distracted and controlled.
In Huxley’s Brave New World, serious literature, scientific thinking and experimentation are banned as subversive, while critical thinking is discouraged through the use of conditioning, social taboos and inferior education. Likewise, expressions of individuality, independence and morality are viewed as vulgar and abnormal.
And in Orwell’s 1984, Big Brother does away with all undesirable and unnecessary words and meanings, even going so far as to routinely rewrite history and punish “thoughtcrimes.” In this dystopian vision of the future, the Thought Police serve as the eyes and ears of Big Brother, while the Ministry of Peace deals with war and defense, the Ministry of Plenty deals with economic affairs (rationing and starvation), the Ministry of Love deals with law and order (torture and brainwashing), and the Ministry of Truth deals with news, entertainment, education and art (propaganda). The mottos of Oceania: WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.
All three—Bradbury, Huxley and Orwell—had an uncanny knack for realizing the future, yet it is Orwell who best understood the power of language to manipulate the masses. Orwell’s Big Brother relied on Newspeak to eliminate undesirable words, strip such words as remained of unorthodox meanings and make independent, non-government-approved thought altogether unnecessary. To give a single example, as psychologist Erich Fromm illustrates in his afterword to 1984:
The word free still existed in Newspeak, but it could only be used in such statements as “This dog is free from lice” or “This field is free from weeds.” It could not be used in its old sense of “politically free” or “intellectually free,” since political and intellectual freedom no longer existed as concepts….
Where we stand now is at the juncture of OldSpeak (where words have meanings, and ideas can be dangerous) and Newspeak (where only that which is “safe” and “accepted” by the majority is permitted). The power elite has made their intentions clear: they will pursue and prosecute any and all words, thoughts and expressions that challenge their authority.
This is the final link in the police state chain.
“Until they became conscious they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.”—George Orwell
Americans have been conditioned to accept routine incursions on their privacy rights. In fact, the addiction to screen devices—especially cell phones—has created a hive effect where the populace not only watched but is controlled by AI bots. However, at one time, the idea of a total surveillance state tracking one’s every move would have been abhorrent to most Americans. That all changed with the 9/11 attacks. As professor Jeffrey Rosen observes, “Before Sept. 11, the idea that Americans would voluntarily agree to live their lives under the gaze of a network of biometric surveillance cameras, peering at them in government buildings, shopping malls, subways and stadiums, would have seemed unthinkable, a dystopian fantasy of a society that had surrendered privacy and anonymity.”
Having been reduced to a cowering citizenry—mute in the face of elected officials who refuse to represent us, helpless in the face of police brutality, powerless in the face of militarized tactics and technology that treat us like enemy combatants on a battlefield, and naked in the face of government surveillance that sees and hears all—we have nowhere left to go.
We have, so to speak, gone from being a nation where privacy is king to one where nothing is safe from the prying eyes of government. In search of so-called terrorists and extremists hiding amongst us—the proverbial “needle in a haystack,” as one official termed it—the Corporate State has taken to monitoring all aspects of our lives, from cell phone calls and emails to Internet activity and credit card transactions. Much of this data is being fed through fusion centers across the country, which work with the Department of Homeland Security to make threat assessments on every citizen, including school children. These are state and regional intelligence centers that collect data on you.
“Big Brother is Watching You.”―George Orwell
Wherever you go and whatever you do, you are now being watched, especially if you leave behind an electronic footprint. When you use your cell phone, you leave a record of when the call was placed, who you called, how long it lasted and even where you were at the time. When you use your ATM card, you leave a record of where and when you used the card. There is even a video camera at most locations equipped with facial recognition software. When you use a cell phone or drive a car enabled with GPS, you can be tracked by satellite. Such information is shared with government agents, including local police. And all of this once-private information about your consumer habits, your whereabouts and your activities is now being fed to the U.S. government.
The government has nearly inexhaustible resources when it comes to tracking our movements, from electronic wiretapping devices, traffic cameras and biometrics to radio-frequency identification cards, satellites and Internet surveillance.
Speech recognition technology now makes it possible for the government to carry out massive eavesdropping by way of sophisticated computer systems. Phone calls can be monitored, the audio converted to text files and stored in computer databases indefinitely. And if any “threatening” words are detected—no matter how inane or silly—the record can be flagged and assigned to a government agent for further investigation. Federal and state governments, again working with private corporations, monitor your Internet content. Users are profiled and tracked in order to identify, target and even prosecute them.
In such a climate, everyone is a suspect. And you’re guilty until you can prove yourself innocent. To underscore this shift in how the government now views its citizens, the FBI uses its wide-ranging authority to investigate individuals or groups, regardless of whether they are suspected of criminal activity.
“Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull.” ― George Orwell
Here’s what a lot of people fail to understand, however: it’s not just what you say or do that is being monitored, but how you think that is being tracked and targeted. We’ve already seen this play out on the state and federal level with hate crime legislation that cracks down on so-called “hateful” thoughts and expression, encourages self-censoring and reduces free debate on various subject matter.
Total Internet surveillance by the Corporate State, as omnipresent as God, is used by the government to predict and, more importantly, control the populace, and it’s not as far-fetched as you might think. For example, the NSA is now designing an artificial intelligence system that is designed to anticipate your every move. In a nutshell, the NSA will feed vast amounts of the information it collects to a computer system known as Aquaint (the acronym stands for Advanced QUestion Answering for INTelligence), which the computer can then use to detect patterns and predict behavior.
No information is sacred or spared.
Everything from cell phone recordings and logs, to emails, to text messages, to personal information posted on social networking sites, to credit card statements, to library circulation records, to credit card histories, etc., is collected by the NSA and shared freely with its agents in crime: the CIA, FBI and DHS. One NSA researcher actually quit the Aquaint program, “citing concerns over the dangers in placing such a powerful weapon in the hands of a top-secret agency with little accountability.”
Thus, what we are witnessing, in the so-called name of security and efficiency, is the creation of a new class system comprised of the watched (average Americans such as you and me) and the watchers (government bureaucrats, technicians and private corporations).
Clearly, the age of privacy in America is at an end.
“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”—Orwell
So where does that leave us?
We now find ourselves in the unenviable position of being monitored, managed and controlled by our technology, which answers not to us but to our government and corporate rulers. This is the fact-is-stranger-than-fiction lesson that is being pounded into us on a daily basis.
It won’t be long before we find ourselves looking back on the past with longing, back to an age where we could speak to whom we wanted, buy what we wanted, think what we wanted without those thoughts, words and activities being tracked, processed and stored by corporate giants such as Google, sold to government agencies such as the NSA and CIA, and used against us by militarized police with their army of futuristic technologies.
To be an individual today, to not conform, to have even a shred of privacy, and to live beyond the reach of the government’s roaming eyes and technological spies, one must not only be a rebel but rebel.
Even when you rebel and take your stand, there is rarely a happy ending awaiting you. You are rendered an outlaw.
So how do you survive in the American surveillance state?
We’re running out of options.
As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we’ll soon have to choose between self-indulgence (the bread-and-circus distractions offered up by the news media, politicians, sports conglomerates, entertainment industry, etc.) and self-preservation in the form of renewed vigilance about threats to our freedoms and active engagement in self-governance.
Yet as Aldous Huxley acknowledged in Brave New World Revisited: “Only the vigilant can maintain their liberties, and only those who are constantly and intelligently on the spot can hope to govern themselves effectively by democratic procedures. A society, most of whose members spend a great part of their time, not on the spot, not here and now and in their calculable future, but somewhere else, in the irrelevant other worlds of sport and soap opera, of mythology and metaphysical fantasy, will find it hard to resist the encroachments of those would manipulate and control it.”
The degree of freedom to consciously make our own decisions in life is something we’re continually waking up to. It’s similar to living in the now. We keep trying, knowing it’s right, and making fresh runs at it daily to live in the moment more and more fully, either by conscious decisions or spontaneously.
What impresses me is how easy it is to fall into unsatisfactory routines. Be they habitual behaviors or living within self circumscribed limits, whatever the reasons or excuses may be. Physical life lends itself to routine for comfort and convenience. This includes survival issues which can appear quite daunting, and even insurmountable, leading to our environment being dictated by base needs and desires.
It gets more complicated when we consider personal relationships which we can often become trapped in. These go hand in hand with whatever environment we find ourselves – our location, finances and true quality of life being the basic guidelines for most. Now add life purpose to this and let’s consider how free we are able to find that true fulfillment our hearts crave. They don’t always work together without seriously draining compromises.
Freedom has to be fought for.
Are we Prisoners of Our Own Making?
The point is we can change these conditions and much more anytime we want. It’s remarkable just how free we are. We “blame” external limitations such as the system, upbringing, mates, family, friends and finances, but these conditions rarely lead us to what we truly desire and are for our highest good. The question looms, are we truly confined by these? Do we only do those things that are prescribed by previous conditions we find ourselves in, either by choice or by simply continually defaulting to external pressures and circumstances?
It’s worth re-evaluating these questions continually, as I see it. When we honestly get down to analyzing the various areas of our personal progress, how would we score ourselves? What needs changing or challenging that we’re either too lazy to do anything about, or too afraid to rock the boat and lose our seeming support system or the comfort of our routine, whether financially, socially, psychologically, spiritually, etc? What’s holding us back from making the changes we know we need?
More importantly, why are we so often afraid to go into the unknown? What prevents us from stepping out to find our truest expression?Change – Ready or Not, Here It Come
The entire game board of life is being shaken from the cosmic down to the very social structure of our planet, and it’s wonderful! Only truth will endure. This isn’t good news to those holding tightly to what they currently have or how they want things to be, whether born from a culturally reinforced fear based mentality, belief system, deep self issues or not. It’s time to wake up and shake off the programming and follow our guts, our hearts. It’s way easier to do it voluntarily by our own volition and heart born desire than to be forced into changes.
A time of personal challenge is now hitting us all. It’s starting with a self clean-up opportunity to prepare us for much greater changes to come. If anyone is going through this you are not alone. However, many will miss the significance of what’s going on right now energetically and will pass along with increased cognitive dissonance and stubborn resistance to change. That’s their choice, but unfortunately in most cases it will affect the rest of us. This is something to be very aware of as the external confusion will only grow. It’s just the nature of things right now. Similar to natural “disasters”, anyone’s life can be turned upside down at a moment’s notice. When we live a more conscious life this realization is ever before us. The key is to not be at the wrong place at the wrong time, in every sense.
The active ingredient within us is our free will, the power of choice, no matter the circumstances or conditions.
“Before you embark on any path ask the question: Does this path have a heart? If the answer is no, you will know it, then you must choose another path. The trouble is nobody asks the question; and when a man finally realizes that he has taken a path without a heart, the path is ready to kill him. At that point very few men can stop to deliberate, and leave the path. A path without a heart is never enjoyable. You have to work hard even to take it. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy; it does not make you work at liking it.”
This is a brief life on this planet. One day our lives will end. It’s time to be alive, not dead in some rut – aptly called a grave with the ends kicked out.
We are fully free to move about the planet, and the Universe. As we always have been.
Let’s exercise our freedom and not let it go to waste. The energy and fulfillment to be released are unfathomable!
PS. The above was inspired by a lucid dream where I found myself listening to someone demonstrating and going on about something I had no interest in, yet felt trapped in some small gathering of onlookers. As I went through the lucid dream transition to waking up, I found myself wondering why had I just subjected myself to this experience? The resultant thoughts and realizations extrapolating that dynamic quickly ensued, leading to honestly making my own life list evaluating my current situation. A true eye opener from the heart level and great exercise for me. This is simply sharing my experience and personal insights, for what it’s worth to others.

American Society Would Collapse If It Weren’t for These 8 Myths
Our society should’ve collapsed by now. You know that, right?
No society should function with this level of inequality (with the possible exception of one of those prison planets in a “Star Wars” movie). Sixty-three percent of Americans can’t afford a $500 emergency. Yet Amazon head Jeff Bezos is now worth a record $141 billion. He could literally end world hunger for multiple years and still have more money left over than he could ever spend on himself.
Worldwide, one in 10 people only make $2 a day. Do you know how long it would take one of those people to make the same amount as Jeff Bezos has? 193 million years. (If they only buy single-ply toilet paper.) Put simply, you cannot comprehend the level of inequality in our current world or even just our nation.
So … shouldn’t there be riots in the streets every day? Shouldn’t it all be collapsing? Look outside. The streets aren’t on fire. No one is running naked and screaming (usually). Does it look like everyone’s going to work at gunpoint? No. We’re all choosing to continue on like this.
Well, it comes down to the myths we’ve been sold. Myths that are ingrained in our social programming from birth, deeply entrenched, like an impacted wisdom tooth. These myths are accepted and basically never questioned.
I’m going to cover eight of them. There are more than eight. There are probably hundreds. But I’m going to cover eight because (A) no one reads a column titled “Hundreds of Myths of American Society,” (B) these are the most important ones and (C) we all have other shit to do.
Myth No. 8—We have a democracy.
If you think we still have a democracy or a democratic republic, ask yourself this: When was the last time Congress did something that the people of America supported that did not align with corporate interests? … You probably can’t do it. It’s like trying to think of something that rhymes with “orange.” You feel like an answer exists but then slowly realize it doesn’t. Even the Carter Center and former President Jimmy Carter believe that America has been transformed into an oligarchy: A small, corrupt elite control the country with almost no input from the people. The rulers need the myth that we’re a democracy to give us the illusion of control.
Myth No. 7—We have an accountable and legitimate voting system.
Gerrymandering, voter purging, data mining, broken exit polling, push polling, superdelegates, electoral votes, black-box machines, voter ID suppression, provisional ballots, super PACs, dark money, third parties banished from the debates and two corporate parties that stand for the same goddamn pile of fetid crap!
What part of this sounds like a legitimate election system?
No, we have what a large Harvard study called the worst election system in the Western world. Have you ever seen where a parent has a toddler in a car seat, and the toddler has a tiny, brightly colored toy steering wheel so he can feel like he’s driving the car? That’s what our election system is—a toy steering wheel. Not connected to anything. We all sit here like infants, excitedly shouting, “I’m steeeeering!”
And I know it’s counterintuitive, but that’s why you have to vote. We have to vote in such numbers that we beat out what’s stolen through our ridiculous rigged system.
Myth No. 6—We have an independent media that keeps the rulers accountable.
Our media outlets are funded by weapons contractors, big pharma, big banks, big oil and big, fat hard-on pills. (Sorry to go hard on hard-on pills, but we can’t get anything resembling hard news because it’s funded by dicks.) The corporate media’s jobs are to rally for war, cheer for Wall Street and froth at the mouth for consumerism. It’s their mission to actually fortify belief in the myths I’m telling you about right now. Anybody who steps outside that paradigm is treated like they’re standing on a playground wearing nothing but a trench coat.
Myth No. 5—We have an independent judiciary.
The criminal justice system has become a weapon wielded by the corporate state. This is how bankers can foreclose on millions of homes illegally and see no jail time, but activists often serve jail time for nonviolent civil disobedience. Chris Hedges recently noted, “The most basic constitutional rights … have been erased for many. … Our judicial system, as Ralph Nader has pointed out, has legalized secret law, secret courts, secret evidence, secret budgets and secret prisons in the name of national security.”
If you’re not part of the monied class, you’re pressured into releasing what few rights you have left. According to The New York Times, “97 percent of federal cases and 94 percent of state cases end in plea bargains, with defendants pleading guilty in exchange for a lesser sentence.”
That’s the name of the game. Pressure people of color and poor people to just take the plea deal because they don’t have a million dollars to spend on a lawyer. (At least not one who doesn’t advertise on beer coasters.)
Myth No. 4—The police are here to protect you. They’re your friends.
That’s funny. I don’t recall my friend pressuring me into sex to get out of a speeding ticket. (Which is essentially still legal in 32 states.)
The police in our country are primarily designed to do two things: protect the property of the rich and perpetrate the completely immoral war on drugs—which by definition is a war on our own people.
We lock up more people than any other country on earth. Meaning the land of the free is the largest prison state in the world. So all these droopy-faced politicians and rabid-talking heads telling you how awful China is on human rights or Iran or North Korea—none of them match the numbers of people locked up right here under Lady Liberty’s skirt.
Myth No. 3—Buying will make you happy.
This myth is put forward mainly by the floods of advertising we take in but also by our social engineering. Most of us feel a tenacious emptiness, an alienation deep down behind our surface emotions (for a while I thought it was gas). That uneasiness is because most of us are flushing away our lives at jobs we hate before going home to seclusion boxes called houses or apartments. We then flip on the TV to watch reality shows about people who have it worse than we do (which we all find hilarious).
If we’re lucky, we’ll make enough money during the week to afford enough beer on the weekend to help it all make sense. (I find it takes at least four beers for everything to add up.) But that doesn’t truly bring us fulfillment. So what now? Well, the ads say buying will do it. Try to smother the depression and desperation under a blanket of flat-screen TVs, purses and Jet Skis. Nowdoes your life have meaning? No? Well, maybe you have to drive that Jet Ski a little faster! Crank it up until your bathing suit flies off and you’ll feel alive!
The dark truth is that we have to believe the myth that consuming is the answer or else we won’t keep running around the wheel. And if we aren’t running around the wheel, then we start thinking, start asking questions. Those questions are not good for the ruling elite, who enjoy a society based on the daily exploitation of 99 percent of us.
Myth No. 2—If you work hard, things will get better.
According to Deloitte’s Shift Index survey: “80% of people are dissatisfied with their jobs” and “[t]he average person spends 90,000 hours at work over their lifetime.” That’s about one-seventh of your life—and most of it is during your most productive years.
Ask yourself what we’re working for. To make money? For what? Almost none of us are doing jobs for survival anymore. Once upon a time, jobs boiled down to:
I plant the food—>I eat the food—>If I don’t plant food = I die.
But nowadays, if you work at a café—will someone die if they don’t get their super-caf-mocha-frap-almond-piss-latte? I kinda doubt they’ll keel over from a blueberry scone deficiency.
If you work at Macy’s, will customers perish if they don’t get those boxer briefs with the sweat-absorbent-ass fabric? I doubt it. And if they do die from that, then their problems were far greater than you could’ve known. So that means we’re all working to make other people rich because we have a society in which we have to work. Technological advancements can do most everything that truly must get done.
So if we wanted to, we could get rid of most work and have tens of thousands of more hours to enjoy our lives. But we’re not doing that at all. And no one’s allowed to ask these questions—not on your mainstream airwaves at least. Even a half-step like universal basic income is barely discussed because it doesn’t compute with our cultural programming.
Scientists say it’s quite possible artificial intelligence will take away all human jobs in 120 years. I think they know that will happen because bots will take the jobs and then realize that 80 percent of them don’t need to be done! The bots will take over and then say, “Stop it. … Stop spending a seventh of your life folding shirts at Banana Republic.”
One day, we will build monuments to the bot that told us to enjoy our lives and … leave the shirts wrinkly.
And this leads me to the largest myth of our American society.
Myth No. 1—You are free.
And I’m not talking about the millions locked up in our prisons. I’m talking about you and me. If you think you’re free, try running around with your nipples out, ladies. Guys, take a dump on the street and see how free you are.
I understand there are certain restrictions on freedom we actually desire to have in our society—maybe you’re not crazy about everyone leaving a Stanley Steamer in the middle of your walk to work. But a lot of our lack of freedom is not something you would vote for if given the chance.
Try building a fire in a parking lot to keep warm in the winter.
Try sleeping in your car for more than a few hours without being harassed by police.
Try maintaining your privacy for a week without a single email, web search or location data set collected by the NSA and the telecoms.
Try signing up for the military because you need college money and then one day just walking off the base, going, “Yeah, I was bored. Thought I would just not do this anymore.”
Try explaining to Kentucky Fried Chicken that while you don’t have the green pieces of paper they want in exchange for the mashed potatoes, you do have some pictures you’ve drawn on a napkin to give them instead.
Try using the restroom at Starbucks without buying something … while black.
We are less free than a dog on a leash. We live in one of the hardest-working, most unequal societies on the planet with more billionaires than ever.
Meanwhile, Americans supply 94 percent of the paid blood used worldwide. And it’s almost exclusively coming from very poor people. This abusive vampire system is literally sucking the blood from the poor. Does that sound like a free decision they made? Or does that sound like something people do after immense economic force crushes down around them? (One could argue that sperm donation takes a little less convincing.)
Point is, in order to enforce this illogical, immoral system, the corrupt rulers—most of the time—don’t need guns and tear gas to keep the exploitation mechanisms humming along. All they need are some good, solid bullshit myths for us all to buy into, hook, line and sinker. Some fairy tales for adults.
