Situational Awareness and Shared Awareness

Our circumstances are precarious because our situational and shared awareness are both dangerously low.

It's important to grasp the distinction between situational awareness and shared awareness. Situational awareness is observing and understanding the implications of what's going on around you. Street criminals rely on their victim's low situational awareness: for instance, when three young men approach you late at night and one circles around you, they are not preparing to ask you for the time.

Cyber criminals rely on our poor situational awareness of vulnerabilities in our systems and practices.

In general, people with low situational awareness are sitting ducks.

Fellow author/blogger Chris Sullins recently made this observation in an email:

I dropped by the neighbors yesterday for the first time in quite awhile and they had all their family visiting. Other than the head couple who answered the door and talked with me, no one else even looked up from their laptops in the living room. The control of situational awareness via the internet is more than TV ever had on the world.

Meanwhile, TV as a controller of situational awareness is no slouch: TV Viewing Continues to Edge Up (NY Times)

Historians may someday note with wonder that by the end of 2010, at least six cable television shows were about auctioneers and pawnbrokers. And all were considered successes by their respective channels.

Americans watched more television than ever in 2010, according to the Nielsen Company. Total viewing of broadcast networks and basic cable channels rose about 1 percent for the year, to an average of 34 hours per person per week.

The History Channel was helped by "Pawn Stars" and "American Pickers," trash-into-treasure reality shows that spawned imitators on other channels.

TLC now has "Pawn Queens," Discovery now has "Auction Kings," Spike now has "Auction Hunters," and A&E now has "Storage Wars."

What is the collective effect of TV, iPods, cell phones, Blackberries and the Web/Internet on our situational awareness? There is a great irony here, of course; much of what passes over the airwaves and Internet backbone is loosely regarded as "information" or "news," yet the act of absorbing this flood collectively distracts us and ends up lowering our situational awareness.

Situational awareness includes our financial circumstances
. One of our good friends works in an industry undergoing contraction/ruthless efficiencies (workers compensation). The threat isn't globalization, it's employers closing down and the number of employees being covered by Workers Comp dropping. The system's blood supply (money paid for policies) is being sharply reduced.

The department where our friend works is in danger of being closed down, and jobs in the industry are scarce. Yet she just went to Macy's to buy one of her daughters a $200 coat, and recently declared that she was taking her two teens to Spain this year "even if we can't afford it."

This is a household with no real savings (maybe $1,000 per teen in a "college fund" and the parent's 401K) and no assets (a 12-year old auto). Our friend earns almost double the average household income in the U.S. ($49,777 per year, according to the Census Bureau).

Her situational awareness of the precariousness of her income and lifestyle appears to be near-zero. She is a sitting duck, financially. Is it denial, or a profound lack of situational awareness? Perhaps both, with a large serving of distraction.

We as a nation appear to have near-zero situational awareness. Our friend is a household analog to the entire nation: ignoring the precariousness of our situation, blind to the negative consequences, basking in whatever state is opposite to paranoia (complacency? Denial?)

If as former Intel chief Andy Grove famously declared, only the paranoid survive, then our friend and the U.S. alike are sitting ducks.

There is a higher level of collective awareness, what Clay Shirky terms shared awareness: the ability of each member of a group to not only understand the situation at hand but also understand that everyone else does, too. (Shirky's essay in Foreign Affairs discusses the political consequences of this: The Political Power of Social Media.)

Shirky's main point is that social media (twitter, Facebook, texting, email, weblogs, etc.) has the potential to increase shared awareness: the understanding that our situational awareness is shared by others, who are also aware they are not alone in their situational awareness.

Political change flows from shared awareness. If one million people have acute situational awareness but remain isolated in their insight, then nothing happens on a political scale. When those same one million people become aware that a million others share their situational awareness and the understanding that the other million people are also aware of each other being on board, then a political movement is possible.

The stock market is an interesting example of this phenomenon. Small investors (so-called retail investors) have been exiting the U.S. stock market for 34 straight weeks, pulling almost $100 billion out of the market. They are voting with their feet based on their situational awareness that the game is rigged, and that the rigging alone greatly increases the risks of another meltdown.

Yet nothing happens to change the market manipulation and fraud because the small investors lack shared awareness.

The two political parties are already dead, zombies without agendas other than borrowing and squandering $2 trillion a year to prop up their fiefdoms, maintain the monopoly cartels which fund them and distribute bread and theatrics to keep their respective audiences idle and distracted in between "get out the vote" campaigns to whip up the Coliseum spectators' Monster Id.

Neither party has an agenda based on a situational awareness of the precariousness of the nation's finances, energy, electrical grid, food supply, etc. etc. etc. The political class (the "leadership") claims a situational awareness which is a simulacrum of the real thing, a PR front that they really do "get it" that borrowing $2 trillion a year ($1.75 trillion Federal, $250 billion more in off-balance sheet borrowing, muni and local government debt) has consequences down the road.

But their responses ("we're going to trim $40 billion from the $3.7 trillion Federal budget, you just watch!") reveal that their state of awareness is near-zero, their level of paranoia is also near-zero, and their level of distraction as they pursue their all-consuming need to retain power, at all costs and by any means necessary--is near-infinite.

As Karl Denninger and others have ceaselessly explained, a true situational awareness requires a much different set of responses: a Federal budget which is slashed by $1.5 trillion, not $15 billion, a mortgage/banking industry which is cleaned up and set on solid ground via bankrupties and hundreds of indictments, a policy of sound money as opposed to manipulation to further the pathological needs of the Power Elites to retain every ounce of wealth and power, and so on.

Some citizens have the situational awareness that the two political parties are intellectually and ethically bankrupt; they have nothing left to offer the citizenry except more of the same old failed policies which have brought us to the edge of the cliff.

In January 2011, the shared awareness of the two parties' zombie status is near-zero. That may change in the years ahead.

I couldn't disagree more.

Karl and Max, despite their foibles have hit upon something that has the potential to actually strike some degree of fear amongst our so-called superiors...namely, the 'buy silver-help crush JP Morgan'.  If this truly does get populist support, a million or more people buying silver dollars WILL have an effect.  We won't be just the sheeple.  Tell your friends and co-workers.  Let's take some ownership.

This is the main function of corporate media or other media or social constructs in authoritarian states is to keep the people from organizing.  In early America they did it by pitting free against indenture, poor white against black and everybody against the indians.  Their major fear was that an alliance would arise between the poor whites and the indians by the way.  Good to see that it all still works.

Exactly. For every American who complains about illegal immigrants coming from Mexico, why aren't they down on the border, blocking the inflow? We have a brand new invention called a tent and a sleeping bag. Why aren't they put into use? The people in the US who object to illegal immigrants probably outnumber the illegal immigrants.

 Famed Harvard physician and social commentator Oliver Wendell Holmes observes that Indians are nothing more than a "half-filled outline of humanity" whose "extermination" is necessary. Holmes describes native peoples as "a sketch in red crayons of a rudimental manhood," adding that it is only natural for the white man to "hate" the Indian and to "hunt him down like the wild beasts of the forest, and so the red-crayon sketch is rubbed out, and the canvas is ready for a picture of manhood a little more like God's own image."

The TV box IS the primary control system that promotes a zombie shared awareness. Zombie in the sense that Everyone Loves Raymond but not situational in that no one understands why Everyone Loves Raymond.

This is the desired outcome of the collective programming. Give everyone the illusion they are connected when in fact they are all isolated souls sharing the same party couch.

My suspicion is that a lot of people are getting situational awareness but are in denial. They don't want to know that it's going down the shitter. Even when there are bodies in the streets, they'll put the blinders on and step over them. Play along and hope that it all blows over soon enough, even if that means accepting totalitarian control, hell, they'd embrace it if it means holding onto their idiot box and their chicken nuggets.

Most people will not become aware because it is painful.  It is painful and difficult to study and research and speak out.  It is easy to sit back and watch the programming.  It's the simple flee pain, run towards pleasure.  Even if the pleasure is toxic people will still run towards it because it is the escape of immediate pain.  Everyone does this to some extent.  I've ducked short term pain, that I know will make things more painful in the future, and done so on a conscious level.  Now if I'm overwhelmed by this response even while identifying it then how much stronger is it in those who are in total denial?

Flee pain, run towards pleasure.  It's the way of things in mammals, and it can be manipulated to advantage certain people/groups.

Ah but most anything worth anything involves pain.  So to accomplish great things it is often necessary to endure great pain.

But to most that is the meaning of life.  I've met enough people who express only a desire to "Be happy" as their life's goal.  So filtering out reality and trying to live in a little bliss bubble is sufficient for many.  After all the universe is a hostile place and to look at it in it's naked form is disquieting.

I think that "To be happy" is a reasonable goal, as long as it is coupled with awareness.  If the goal of being happy centers around the goal of avoiding pain or discomfort, then it is either unrealistic or will only be accomplished through denial.  Pain is likely necessary for happiness, as where does the sense of accomplishment come from without having to work for the happiness?  With TV and other sources of endless stimulation, it seems that most think happiness is something that will come externally rather than through learning, experience, and accomplishment. 

No pain, no gain...No brain, no pain.

Great article.

I realized over the past decade, and especially since Fall 2008 that the only "vote" anyone would listen to from me was my money.

I moved everything out of mutual funds and the bank and into cash.  I started to put into precious metals and WILL NOT put any of that money back into equities for Wall Street to play with.

If you are responsible and have assets you are THE NUMBER ONE TARGET of both Washington and Wall Street. 

Unless you make enough to be "one of them" and have a cadre of lawyers and accountants you are SCREWED or will be by the predatory taxes, fees, insurance, pharmaceutical, health care, financial, and legal INDUSTRIES (not professions) that have gradually mutated into a middle class and democratic republic eating MONSTER.

Also, I've noticed that the "shared awareness" that has arisen in the US is one of pitting the heads of the hydra against each other without realizing they are the same beast.  Left vs. right, red vs. blue, Democrat vs. Republican, Liberal vs. Conservative, etc.  It's maddening the arguments I hear from people.  Sadly, even my own father has fallen prey to the illusion.

The old partisan game, keeps everyone from discovering they all have shared interests and shared enemies. If the white, black and hispanic underclasses in the US ever gained shared awareness and managed to shake free from the shackles of partisan games, the elites would be running scared. I think that's what they feared in the 60s/70s from the antiwar crowd. Too many different groups were gaining situational and then shared awareness. It scared the fuck out of the rulers.

People are pulling their money out of funds because they are broke. Not because they see thru the fakery.


When hyperinflation hits the people who lived it up and went broke, will be better off than the people who scraped and saved. In the one case, their debts will go to zero. In the other case, their savings will go to zero. Both end up broke.But the profligates had a good time first.

This is one reason inflation is more destructive to society than deflation.

Good point.

Many aging boomers are having to liquidate a lifetime of IRA's and 401K's and savings to pay for healthcare, mortgage, or food and rent.

Corporations, and yes, even State and Federal governments are dumping people over 35 (a financial "Logan's Run") that aren't higher-ups becasue those people have children on healthcare plan, contributions to retirement, and higher salaries from years of service.

Solution?  Fire them and hire a peach faced college grad with no spouse or kids and pay them peanuts.  That, or outsource to India or China, or a computer voice and web page.

Older guys are screwed.  They do like the young peach faced college kid for reasons you list.

They also like them because they can mold them into their own corporate robot.  They teach them to obey, worship, and kiss ass, and most important - don't question the authority.

You must be a law abiding (the companies corporate law) ass kissing, lying, stooge who worships the assholes your working for, and never question anything.  Just ask "what stupid thing do  you want me to do next."

i almost didnt post this, but to some degree i live with all of you.

I called the IRS today as i have a final notice. In all they want 25 grand by end of the month. I paid 500 per month for years until last year when business died and i closed my shop. Their cut gets bigger every day and makes working a very unrewarding venture.

I average 35 g per year hanging sheetrock and taping, do my own work.After materials, gas ,business lic,ins,bond,state lic, truck ins , gas etc i bing home 26 g max. I was never greedy , my bad. So while telling them i would trade my ssi i got coming for the debt  and that they werent a getting no more , i boke down and friggen cried. I didnt expect that , especially since i am well versed in much of the shenanigans of the governments assault on us. It especially hard as i saw yet more prove of 911 today being done by our own.

We are being destroyed and no one is opposing it..yet

2 coats hot mud (beadex) no sanding in 20 years except all stainless knives edges . All hand work, no boxes and i truly love my work. Time  to move on and change with the times. Hurts tho to see the future suffering needlessly for the greed of the few in the present. I see the tent cities, husbands and wifes fighting, elders losing their homes to the county taxes, farmers wiped out and a JIT delivery system about to fall apart.

war is possible and even more innocent will find their lives shortened. I notice many folks suffering and dying because of our leaders and corporations.

Rot in hell you fucken zionists

It's not likely to go right into hyper inflation, even high inflation will kill the debtors though.  They will already be in debt, wages will lag behind while the cost of real things go up. In this witches brew they will be worse off because they will still have to carry the debt as the money dies.  It's also likely the economic situation would get worse which will force up the money printing so it will make the situation even more dire.

Sure the people who saved will lose their savings but they will be under less immediate pressure when the big event really starts moving.  the debtors will have their debt swiped out in real terms but they will likely lose everything including the collateral behind their debt in the process.  Some savers might actually emerge with something.

Seems to me that at some point along that process there will be a tipping point.  A point where the system simply "fails" due to overwhelming debt defaults.  The big question of course is how far into that process does the "failure" occur.

I believe I will test-i-fy...

The recent iteration of boom and bust woke me up.  During the boom, I kept thinking that things (particularly the RE markets in which I work) were insane.  I was doing well and making money, so I didn't dwell on it.  I expected a recession and then things would get back to normal  Instead, the economy crashed, despite all of the resources dedicated to our fine government and power-elite.  There had been an implicit understanding that a reasonably stable economy would always be maintained by the wizards of smart and the powers-that-be, and, in exchange, we would continue to allow them to run the show. 

Once the financial system failed and was bailed out, I searched harder for answers.  Through my investigation, I came to learn about Austrian economics.  I was fairly amazed that Austrian economists had accurately predicted the course of events, but (almost) nobody gave it any mention.   I am still fairly amazed that more people are not trying to learn what went wrong with the economy and why.  I guess it will take more and bigger busts to motivate people to learn and share the situational awareness necessary to make a change.

1. They overleveraged into real estate ( got too greedy) - and then got stopped out - during a brief deflationary period ( last 2 years).

2. Now as we most likely revert to normal ( ie. Stagflation) - they have few assets, are pschologically inclined to stay in cash ( too fearful) and avoid real assets. They will thus be doubly screwed.

Most people are just not good traders .

Shared awareness in the US:  everything will be fine if no one rocks the boat.  Not rocking the boat is the key axiom of public school socialization.  Thinking within established boundaries is the University version. 

Optimism has its roots in the American Dream, the idea that anything can be achieved with freedom and opportunity in an underpopulated, resource rich land.   Ad hoc social cooperation was the genius of the expanding west as much as rugged individualism.   But optimism has devolved into dysfunctional denial of reality, and cooperation into fear driven collectivism/conformism.

Most people do not have the pschological resources, or don't believe they do, to tolerate real situational awareness while shared awareness is dimmed, distorted and limited by the media which transmits it.

The US is just too big. It needs to split up into about 5 regions. It's currently going the way of the Soviet Union and may collapse the same way. Dmitri Orlov's site is a good one to visit to understand the dynamics of collapse. Hopefully the US collapse will not be bloody and the country will make a natural transition to autonomous regions. This is what we should wish for rather than keeping the US intact under the rule of the federal government. That model no longer works and to my mind is the whole problem. If we continue to try to return to the past, which is essentially what we are doing when we try to "fix things", we will inevitably find ourselves living in a totalitarian state. Totalitarianism is the glue that will hold the country together. Smaller regions would give much more of a voice to their inhabitants, or at least have the potential to do so. It could be something to look forward to in creating a more just society with a govenment that responds to its constituents. JMHO.

Situational Awareness?

Ok, let's just call a-spade-a-spade, for about ten minutes here; 

No one who is paying attention believes usurer-media anymore. They lie about everything, to maintain this completely fraudulent 'reality', which the working slaves don't have the time to examine for reality, or veracity.

Our Govt and corporate klepto-slavers keep us busy, tired and distracted with CSI murder-action utter drivel as 'entertainment', punctuated by genuinely idiot-generating 'commercials', for rubbish we definitely don't need, thus they maintain the shallow charade, with negligible resistance.

The solution is work only as much as you must and don't go into debt, and don't get too worn out. They want you worn out and in debt. If you are in debt, default, and then you are not. It really is about that simple to get out of debt, if you really want to, and why wouldn't you? This allows you time to be more aware of their lies, and the pervasive inconsistencies with prevailing circumstances, and look into why they insist on enslaving us.

The Govt and social organizations bang-on and on about 'PARTICIPATION' as this is the simplest structural social weapon they can utilize to suppress the ability to pay attention, to learn, or to act to protect our genuine personal and social community interests.

As it turns out, an under-employed population is a more serious threat to these slavers and Pigmen because these people can pay more attention and so become more skeptical and aware, and <gasp!> may learn to enjoy their lives, and realize the best things really are free, as they then have the time and opportunities to do this. The usual remedy to this is a Gulag or something along that sort of spectrum of bastardizing State policy options and responses (yes, as it turns out, the usurers also invented and also operated the Soviet's Gulag system for them, so don't imagine they are above going that far).

So the slavers essentially try to pay more, especially to induce the younger aspirants to keep busy, and thus buy more useless shit and engage in dumb trivial activities (when young and dumb). Then in parallel attack the under-employed (as they age and become more aware) to keep them impoverished or feeling a totally  fake-guilt, merely for not being good and 'productive' little slave for the usurers. Plus to help make sure they are progressively marginalized, then ostracized, for being less affluent, via maintaining an idiotic division of fake classes, based on how much money they levered, and how high their credit limit grew to via sucking up to THEIR TPTB.

All social divisions are accentuated for that very purpose whilst they make a great swanning-pretense of "healing social divisions". But really, they are fully mobilized to generate the opposite of social cohesion, in every situation, they always find ways to make money off the results, and also the material demands of such divisions.

They play the upside and downsides of the young, and they play the downside and the upside of the older. Be it profiteering from private prisons, selling weapons to their private 'police', or running illegal drugs into suburbia via supposed security agencies they systematically infiltrated and entirely run without any recourse, for they are above the 'Law'.

All of it makes the usurers vast sums of money.

So even in the process of dividing and destroying us to conquer, they make vast profits out of our scalps, even as they militate and bring about our decay. It reminds one of those BS Hollywood movies, where the nasty SS guard pulls gold teeth out of the mouths of some murdered usurer. The reality is just the reverse, they are doing this to us, in numerous ways today. The IMF is the ultimate usurer's gold tooth extractor.

Did we not know what usurers were? Was there not historical precedent to warn us of what they had done before to other countries, and would seek to do again? So why are they now into everything, and running everything and this was allowed by the people who's job it was (I'm looking at you defense forces of the USA) to make sure this never happened, and was never possible?

Where were OUR 'Elders'?

You know those phony old geezers in the halls of power who are SUPPOSED to be aware of such things, and warn us of them in advance? What else are such feeble old geysers for, if not to warn us of such long-run things, and outcomes, and dangers? Were none of these old farts on OUR side?

Apparently none of them were standing the watch for us!

The 'fore-fathers' may have been, but what you have there now, and recently, were, at best, total idiots, or traitors (either way, feel free to guillotine with complete abandon as you won't be in any danger of executing any 'innocents' by mistake. Anyone who didn't speak up, or spoke up in defense of the usurers - off them! This is war and they were not there for us, they were there for them).

The enemy's 'Elders' were standing their watch though.

The usurers may have used very unconventional methods but this is a War, and you have been invaded, and completely overrun. Think about who calls the shots now, where, and who do your orders come from now? Who is at the Apex of the chain-of-command?

You have been taken over completely by the usurer bandits from another state. So there is ZERO FORMAL RESISTANCE.

And to maintain this, and eliminate the spread of INFORMAL RESISTANCE, they try to force the wayward 'under-achievers' into 'PARTICIPATION', but of course at a lower pro-slaver and  pro-Pigman rate of 'pay', especially as they age, thus again increasing social divisions, via age, as well as sex, race, and class, and religion, and 'politics', and by countries.

These divisions are all designed to keep us divided to we can never informally organize any serious challenge to their take over and enslavement. And they supplement the divisions with drugs, glitzy rubbish, distractions, utter trivia and a wall of almost impenetrable lies.

And if it works, problem solved, threat to slaver elites attenuated.

If it doesn't work that's just as good, as you are then an informal "enemy of the State", because the usurers now define the 'State' and they will find ways to make a dollar out of your division from THEIR slave society and speed along your oblivion in multiple ways at that point.

Divided we fall. That's how they took us. And we are going to have to be aware of this and unite to remove them. So they are going to sew as much division and fear and mistrust as possible between us, to remain at the helm.

We can't have 'freed' slaves!! Who default on fake debt-money loans, and thus have no debts, and no usury 'tithe' to them each month, and have no desire for 'credit' slavery either, and thus enjoy life at very low cost - how outrageous! Damn free-loaders!

If such 'freedom-loving' utter bastards refuse to 'PARTICIPATE', well, we'll use Govt policy and social condemnation on them. We'll muster an army of robotic self-righteous media arseholes, to ideologically lambaste the selfish poor, and the under-employed for not taking "responsibility for their choices", etc. And thus we will create a truly poisonous divisions in society to prevent the danger of a unified awakening and response. And we will use their own military to threaten them into feeble submission.

And they have done it! Any attempt to awaken and organize is thus defused by infiltration, and division, and extraordinary lies and fake 'event' contrivances.

Thus making society and life as ugly as possible and the 'free' slaves increasingly vulnerable to financial crisis via removing any social supports or legal protections - in practice. The 'Law' is a very different beast when 'applied' to the scummy poor, and that's why they create so many asinine vexatious laws with absurd fine penalties plus generate increasingly arrogant aggressive self-righteous right-wing cops, to ensure you will eventually have some crisis, and come unstuck in some way, thus ensuing impoverishment, probable homelessness and hopefully a descent into hopelessness, or depression, if you don't understand what they are doing, and that you ARE in a civil-war with the PUPPET Govt of a foreign State.

That is what is in the Oval office right and on the Hill, right now.

They particularly like to drive us into self-destructive chemical addictions, which the usurers knowingly, both legally and illegally, import and sell very cheaply to suburban plebs for that very purpose. Thus to create entanglements and malaise and social destruction and even greater divisions and family pain, with the resulting disorderly behaviors, and absence of dangerous social-unity, and often suicidal or jail-time outcomes (with a nice profit on top). Oh yes, that is why the 'US Govt', which the usurers took over long ago, peddles cheap escapist impairing drugs to you, and yours.

There is no "war on drugs", it has all been a ruse, there is only a war to control who supplies the drugs, the formal usurer 'Govt', or the informal black-market competition. That is what the 'US' DEA is for, to control who gets the cashflow.

Either way you go in society the usurers get rich off it. They own the tenements, the Real Estates, they collect the rents, they own the police, they own the shops and the crops, they own the drugs, they own the car companies, they own the fuel, they own the electricity utilities, they own the tax legislators, they own the prisons, they own the weapon makers, they own the banks, they print the money.

They can not lose. They are not keen on suicides though as it costs them potential income and adds to clean-up costs. So they sell insurance to "the vulnerable" to try and cover such losses. All of it is a tremendous rort!

It's like what occurred when these same usurers 'freed' the Negro slaves, they kidnapped earlier from Africa. The masters had to pay firstly the usurer slave-traders, to 'obtain' the slaves and transport them, then to train, operate, feed, house and cloth them, and pay for their family health-care, and provide a security detail to oversee them and keep the master safe.

It was expensive! But why not eliminate these slaver 'overheads'?

The solution was "free them", so then, like the white slaves, they had to "take personal responsibility", and pay for all of it themselves, and still turn up for manual labor, each morning, for a slaves wage.

"Congratulations, you have just been 'freed'! You are no longer a 'slave' - you have 'rights'! Now get back to what you were doing yesterday, or I'll take away your wages."

So the usurers replaced the whip with the wages, then added debt and unemployment, to take the wages off them.

It was much more profitable, and they called it, ... wait for it, 'Capitalism'.

But you had to make sure the slaves 'PARTICIPATED' rather than had time to reflect on what just happened to them and what they actually got out of it ... and who did it to them ... and were they really any better off, or any freer, when dealing with THEIR 'Govt' or before THEIR 'Judges'?

White or black, a slave is a slave is a slave, and we are going to have to become one to defeat this usurer clan, and they are going to try and play the race-card, to divide us again. And they WILL definitely try to create racial violence between us, and jealousy, and rumors, and resentments and blame.

Our job is to decide in advance that they will fail to divide and weaken us on the basis of 'races', we are human slaves, and they are the usurer 'masters'.

They did this.


The indebted have to work under the fear of the whip of the Sheriff and repossessors calling.

The usurers even invented group-insurance, paid for by the slaves themselves, against rising unemployment, to cover the debt repayments, in the event of substantial non-participation. They had all the levers of the new-slavery covered.

They called the new-slavery, 'Equality'.

Actually, nothing much changed for the next century, as it was only when the Negro slaves threatened and then used actual mob violence in the 1970s to press their demands, for social justice, that the usurers decided it was better for their bottom-line to offer social concessions, than to fight an urban war, which they probably could not win or benefit much from.

And when, in desperation, some of the Negro leaders rejected Christianity and turned to Islam, the usurers then turned from race discrimination to religious division, and called them traitors or 'terrorist' guerillas. And thus began the war-against-terror, that continues its stupidity to this day, as a new source for usurer profiteering on behalf of tribal cabal interests who PRETEND to be the USA's true 'Govt'. To still be by the people, for the people. When it's really a Govt "by duel-nationals for duel-nationals", from an Enemy state that was PRETENDING to be an 'Ally', or "one of us".

Or as former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak put it, on Sept 11 2001, after the twin-towers were demolished, "NOW WE ARE ALL ISRAELIS!"

No Ehud.

You are Israeli.

We are NOT Israeli. We are what we are. We will never be you. We do not want to be you. Nor are we in the least bit unhappy with who or what we are. We are 100% proud of who and what we are, for it's clearly immeasurably better and vastly superior to your backward excuse for a civilized society. You are not us, not even close. You are the nearly perfect expression of the ultimate thieves and liars. Some correctly have labeled you the "Great Satan". It is you they are referring to. It is not us they are referring to. Stop trying to make us the party to your outrageous Sins against other Human Beings.


[excuse me, it just felt so right]

You have taken over our Govt(s) by stealth on completely false pretenses and with profound and remarkable sneakiness. We see you are clearly capable of the most outrageous duplicity and shameless covetousness. And there are considerable suspicions that you, Ehud, you in fact caused 9-11 to cement your infiltrated positions, in the power-bases of the countries you stole, of the lands you shamelessly coveted and made war with. And on 9-11 you finally felt confident enough to come out fully from the closet of deception, so that we could see you properly as you are. And by Sept 2008 you had thus become so brazen, you had a little street parade with Ben and Timmy and Hank to celebrate your total conquest of the markets of Wall Street, and of the world.

Because you now felt you could now get away with doing this. You assumed you were in such an unassailable position of strength and your lies so compelling and entrenched that you would never be found out, that your neo-slaves were much too dumb to see what had just done to the world.

But we know what you did.

And they repeatedly told us that through history they were always misunderstood "good guys" and bringers of 'wealth', when it was just exploitative usury and a debt asset-bubble, designed specifically to allow them to take over everything, like a tumor, and inflate away all this 'wealth', as they legally 'acquire' all assets. Then they have the gall to tell us they are rich because they are smarter than us! Even as they steal every form of technology from us.

These 'Allies' may as well just slit our throats openly, but they are far too devious to do that, directly, they have done that enough to know how it ends if you do that.

But we see you Ehud, we see you very clearly now. You won't throw us off the scent. You are setting up to do to Australia the very same thing you did to the USA. And you have worked tirelessly to capture and take over the Govts of every Euro-based nuclear-armed state, including Russia, to make sure they would not take you out, when the lid came off your deceptions. (Oh, and good luck trying that trick on China. I'm sure they'll see themselves in you and know what you are, and what you are after)

And with these gargantuan lies and lots of fake-sincerity and a Ponzi scheme from the pit of Hell, with a routine of counterfeit smiles, and a phalanx of over-rated over-paid phony-intellectuals to trumpet the praises of your neo-conquistador take-over of the New-World [Order ... or, dis-Order], you have tried to enslave the whole world via central bank usury and sociopathic money-lenders.

We were never supposed to notice your not the "good guys", nor a part of us.

You think you can't lose, ... well, maybe, unless we happened to pay attention by the billions ... and just snapped-out of it, all of a sudden ... and saw you in the stark relief of your actual actions ... and thus fully understood the lies ... and realized the trap you have set for us to fall into ... and simply refused to pay any attention to your people any more. Well, not the sort of attention they prefer.

Then you are finished. You can try and threaten us with the "Samson Option", but we will survive, and recover - but you, you definitely won't survive, as a state, as a people, or as a culture. This is our world. There is no room and no place here for a 'Master Race' of genocidal usurer slavers.

You are dismissed.

The usurers realize the now rapidly growing awareness in the developed world means they will need to stymie/eliminate this swelling wave of awakening critics, but they can't be seen to do it themselves. They'd ordinarily use a hellfire missile through a bedroom window at 3 AM or a car bomb or sniper. But they can't do that in the suburban Western world, well, not on the scale they need to.

So they plan to use their proxy puppet Govts, come Police States, that they have infiltrated and infected and turned against the people, to do it on their behalf. Hence the growth of fascism-lite police states and suitable laws, all over the world, in recent years, in preparation for fascism-heavy, that's still coming, and the great purge of any resistance. Which will be made to look like something other than a purge of those awake to them. You can be sure of that.
Thus, if they don't get you with mandatory 'PARTICIPATION' in their neo-slavery, even as wages fall (and their profits rise), they just ratchet up the pressures on the individual, and weaken and divide your social bonds and families, and eliminate our standing, with smears, innuendo and legalism, plus psychology-operations, peer pressure and ostracism, poverty, drugs, sanctioning and programs to 'help you' in some way, to thus stunt and eliminate your bigger-picture awareness of them AND THUS BRING ANY POTENTIAL THREATS TO THEIR USURY SLAVING TO NAUGHT.

(and yes, make a big profit and keep asset stripping even as they do it).

And here you were thinking you fought in wars to save everyone FROM tyranny. Sorry fellas, you are very brave, and very capable soldiers, but you saved the tyranny itself while making them a pretty penny.

They have tried to convince us all that we are just stupid, incapable, lost the edge, that our people are dumb, that they are rubbish, that the future is whatever they make it. But they have done everything possible to generate a loss of confidence in our own capacities. On the contrary, it's our prerogative to make the future. No arsehole usurer slaver is going to dictate a damn thing to me. I don't want their opinions, or their 'advice', or their ideas, or their input, to anything - period!

Again Ehud, FUCK YOU!

The usurers told you, you were fighting 'Just Warz' for the sake of the 'Peese', and for our 'Phreedom' and our 'Way of Lie-fe'. Which is that of a combat slave and a tax sucker for another foreign power's tribal in-breeders.

This is the bitter Red-Pill. They kill us because they can, and they love it.

Thus the slaver's momentum is sustained while ours, and societies in general is in endless division, attrition and disorder, that of course can only be addressed with massive oppressive police intervention and intimidation.

Don't play the game of these inbreeds, their debt-money, their baubles, their 'entertainments' (invariably involving murders and some pretty damn sick debauching that results in negative family and social effects), and their escapist drugs, both 'legal' and 'illegal' (which is entirely relative to whether you wear a Badge and uniform).

These are all a snare created by the usurers to destroy our countries and eliminate our capacities, and our social structures that are needed to learn about them, what they are, what they have done to us, what damage they have deliberately wrought to our education systems, whereby we could have gathered together against them, to protect ourselves from their degenerate designs and polished attacks.

They have made it 'illegal' to gather against them, in a hundred different ways, legally and socially, specifically to place stumbling block after stumbling block in our path, to prevent us ever becoming free of their complete financial and political control.

That is what an internal enemy does. This is how the 'inside-job' gains ground, every year, as our countries and societies fall into decay. This is the very purpose of what they do in offering to run our money for us.

Or alternatively, they were just being 'nice', you know, just helping us dumb shits by sorting it all out for us, because we are, like, so incapable of using our brain in such tricky matters of finance. Thank goodness for all those lovely helpful Central Bank usury slavers! ... says the MSM.

NO! Reject their slave mechanism, pay attention, act, really help others to understand what's happened to us, or rather what being systematically done to us, who's doing it, what's coming, and what they want to do to us. This will quickly produce what we need. They can turn the Internet off, but they can not stop word of mouth and documentation.

In Orwell's 1984 'fiction', TPTB banned all books for that very purpose, and changed words, and converted the info medium from two-way, to one-way, and eliminated the off-buttons altogether and you never knew when you were being observed. Brings new meaning to 'always-on' broadband. Already with smart-phones a Govt can remotely locate you, turn on a camera, and the microphone, without your knowledge, and listen to whatever you are doing, at any time. Almost all of what Orwell foreshadowed is here right now.

We are really not far from the fascism-heavy full-enchilada.

They will do this if they can get away with it. And make no mistake, they plan to do it, and they plan to get away with it.

I wish it were no the case, but we are in a genuine war. It may not have combat, yet, at least not where you are right now, but this is war. It is not just economic. There is no such thing as a purely economic war, or a genuinely cold war.

It is a Strategic war and strategic wars are always total wars.

There is one winner of such a war who gets to write the 'history'.

I want that to be us, not the usurers. I want us to warn future generation about who these people are and what they tried to do, and tell them to never trust these scoundrels again, or ever let them into your country. I want them to understand that this is not a one off, they have been at this for centuries, and that they have been caught red handed many times and been forcibly expelled. And that they always try to get the money supply and the media of the day and paint a story of pure innocence, until they again get discovered and out-ed again, for the pit of vipers they truly are. I want them, and especially their potential future victims to understand that the usurers are a sickness. That it's not merely the case of one or two bad generations, but a recurrent peculiarity of that religion, of that culture, of that belief system of the usurer, that they can not help but make war on the rest of the world. That they are an evil and malicious and unredeemable bunch of eternal crooks and murderers, and a spring of endless badness on Earth.

That is the history that must be recounted, and understood, and passed on, and that is why we must get to write it.

We are literally in a war with very evil and culturally-elitist demented a-moral actual inbreeds (which is known to create genetic damage and induce psychosis, proportional to the degree of inbreeding), and they are being mighty careful to pretend they are our very best friends, even compatriots, even allies to the bitter end, as they destroy us from within with the tools of a Neo-Conquistador [i.e. Neo-Con for short].

As I heard a guy recently point out, what we call 'Capitalism' with debt money, is in fact the outright expression of the perfect implementation of usurer slavery - the 'perfect' economic world from their point of view.

And this is what they keep telling us, through their media, via their people and employee and beneficiaries.

Don't just accept it!

And don't be surprised these scummy charlatans are so keen on their form of debt-based usury-as-Capitalism, that 'won' over their other invention (i.e. Communism), and also don't be surprised that what you really got instead is kleptocratic usury and slaver bailout, with 'bonus' tax-slavery (literally!), and enforcer Police-States, all overseen by IMF Usurer-in-Chief, field Marshall Kahn, and the Usurer-owned BIS, the 'US' Federal Reserve, that FOREIGN Central Bank that still PRETENDS to be of, and also for, the US of A.

This is their perfect 'Capitalism'.

Naturally the usurer foot-soldiers in this IMF+BIS War-Profiteering machine is always going to be protected and 'overlooked' by THEIR 'regulators' and they are assured to never be jailed for their numerous criminal acts and open flouting of Law, and wonton acts of social destruction and its cohesion, and their barely contained disgust for any sort of common decency among Human Beings. They are capable of it, but they have no intention of ever doing it, unless it furthers their plans. That is the real extent of their 'moral' behavior, a vehicle to a greater despotism and elimination of morality.

That is the real nature of the 'advanced', 'progressive', 'developed', 'free', 'democratic', globalized-world they have foisted on us. That is why the world seems to be strangely profoundly, for want of a better word, 'faulty', and deeply and apparently unresolvably troubled. How could it possibly be otherwise in a carefully perfected usurer's 'economic' and political Paradise?

And this is why it must be changed. All through the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries they have repeatedly tried to assert that revolutions and overthrows of existing orders never produce anything better than already exists, and they have even engineered overthrows with their people playing both sides, specifically to 'prove' this point in graphic and violent detail, to scare us away for that logical path to be rid of them.

BULLSHIT! ... and oh yes ... FUCK YOU!

They created such overthrows, specifically to vandalize the outcomes, and create dysfunctional destructive systems, specifically in order to establish that only their perfected Capitalist usurers paradise, their status-quo, 'worked' economically. That the financier, the usurer was the most important aspect of a modern economy.

Like a grand symphony, they have played us, to make all the 'right' conclusions, and paint ourselves into THEIR corner, as though these were our own, and also only valid possible conclusions. And when we did that, they figured they finally had all of humanity in their slaver's mits.

And that is what they desperately don't want us to notice, or dwell on, and what future generations must know about. Any attempt to highlight this is met with increasing layers of condemnations, right up to and including the 'terrorist' label, and imprisonment for mere free speech of already established facts. Or else you meet a 'demise', for those daring to state what's really happening in our world today, and who's really doing it.

When you see news reports condemning Vladimir Putin for intervening in the imprisoning of oligarchs, be aware, ALL of those mega rich oligarchs are usurer slavers - not one of them isn't. Putin knows exactly what they were doing to Russia, and he decided to do the world a big favor and make sure it was stopped so they could not make trouble all over the globe with the stolen loot. This is what the usurer-owned MSM 'reaction' to Putin's intervention is all about. He's on to them, and they don't like it one bit. The bottom line is Russia has a lot of nuclear weapons situated very close to Israel, and the usurers would desperately like to take these out of the strategic equation by taking over Russia in the same way they have taken over the USA. Putin stopped them in their tracks and took what they took back from them, and threw them and their criminal helpers into jails and tried to rescue his country, and it has been largely been an outrageous galloping success measured over the past 15 years.

Don't look now, but that's how you take your country back.

In the end, no bailout, no stimulus package, no 'regulator', no 'judge', no acts of the people's Con-gress, no El-Presidente, will ever even attempt to fix this "inside-job" or to nail the arse of those that did it.

They are one and the same, and a similar Nationalist leader will have to emerge, at some point, to take the USA's Govt and property back and we'll see what they are, from what they DO, not from what some complete arse of a fraud merely 'promises' to get elected, and do nothing, but create greater theft and police state oppression of the actual REAL citizens.

I'm not an American citizen, I'm an Australian, and we both face all of the same usurpers and Govt supplanting issues, and I hope we can unite as people to throw off these international stinking crooks without too much destruction, but they have done all they can to make throwing them off as destructive as possible, to deter that. That is how the slavers plan to win in the long run.

"Usurers-are-us" are still inside our countries and their smiling attack on all of the developed world is on-going and open-ended. They have no intention of ever stopping the usurer slavery and theft voluntarily. They can't help themselves.

Only one process will end this, and it will come from the awake citizens, not from some laughable Govt, in the USA or elsewhere. The usurers literally OWN all but six of the world's central banks.

The Central banks the usurers don't own are in "Rogue States" and ones that openly hate, distrust or have been recently at wart with these usurers.

So have no doubt that 'our' Govts are totally usurped, they are not going to suddenly start to be OUR Govt again. We are constantly told of the evils of "Nationalist Leaders", but who is it that has been constantly telling us this?

The usurer's mass media, the very ones who know very well that this is what it would take to dislodge them. The usurers made sure of this. THEY are the 'Govts' of the 'developed' world. They did this to increase all divisions in society, and distrust of anything that could aide us, and also to increase their destructive controls to make sure we could not take a country back. And they sent out their agents and intellectuals to write books and shape discourse to convince us that civil masses could never win a conflict against a Govt, that did not want to lose, so don't even try.

But they would say that, wouldn't they. We have to question all of these fake assumptions about what we can do and what is possible.

Vietnam did succeed against a Superpower, and so did many other peoples who fought earlier foreign corporate 'colonial' takeovers and race colonization, but only to then quickly have their money supply and Govts taken over by these usurers! Wherever they could weasel their way into a young country, firstly via humanitarian 'aid' programs, that pretended to help, to get a foot in the door of the Govt, then take over the infrastructure, and services of the Govt, and then of the country, under the pretense of foreign 'investment'.

They did it everywhere with less and less resistance.

We are all being carefully destroyed, taken over from within by a virulent usurer enemy, that tries always not to be seen, to not be fully out-ed and to thus use proxies to pass the blame on to others, for the harm and impairments and structural stealing they seek to impose (in our "best interests").

Other times they just change their surname, to try and hide their real ancestry, and allegiances, so people don't realize who has taken over, and who starts and maintains the wars, and accentuates social division. The usurer Conquistadors arrange all of this as a now well-lubricated mechanism.

The IMF is run by Dominique Straus COHEN - not 'KAHN'. His family changed their Surnames to hide their real identity as belonging to the usurers.

Curious isn't it, that during this global era of obvious 'insider-job' Sovereign financial collapses, that the apparent independent 'third-party', charged with sorting it all out, in the "best interests" of these country's peoples, is also from the same usurer slaver camp as those who engineered the debt growth bubble-economies to create the largest pool of distressed-assets, in all of history, ripe for criminal financier 'harvesting'. The biggest looting of humanity - ever.

Cute! I'm sure it's all a fabulous coincidence and no persons should be put up against a wall as a result. Gee!-who-cuda-knowed!

Think of that the next time you hear this consumate deceiver and fraud-artiste speak to defend the 'interests' of usurer bankers and supposedly the state and people they are screwing to 'economix' death. You know, when the poor bankers get such a rough-deal on the inevitable haircuts on the muney they created from nothing and did nothing for, with zero risk of a NET loss. It must be real tough on them.

This is what they do, they set up and OWN the BIS, they set up and 'OWN' the IMF, they setup and OWN the US Federal Reserve, and they have their man, Timmah, running the US Treasury, and a complete and utter boob in the Oval Office who knows with great panache how to behave as a proper and professional traitor of the people he swore and oath to protect, from such, and the foreign power and clearly nefarious interests pulling all their strings - in concert. The Symphony of our demise.

It's all just "doing God's work", as Lloyd and Hank, Tim and Benji, would all heartily agree.

But we are talking about the 'God' of the plagues, like Pass-Over, burning bushes, animal sacrifice, slaughtering the neighbors, killing the men, raping then murdering the woman, enslaving all the children, stealing and sacrificing animals, thieving the beasts of burden, pillaging the land then annexing it in the name of 'God'. All done on the orders of some rat-minded psychotic 'prophet' or high-priest. THAT is the 'God' whose work these invading usurers are doing. That is what they plan to bring to our century, and the next one - without end.

Trying to merely survive this avid, "serving of God", is no real help to you, or anyone else. It will only ensure the usurers victory. Sure, be prepared, survive, but don't leave it there. We are going to have to treat this as real war against all of us. They have been looking at it as a real war, for global control, for literally centuries, and all the while they pretended to be a part of us, the better part! Refining us, making us better and stronger via their financial 'growth', or else, they pretended to be something other than the rank usurers they are, bent on global conquest to enslave the whole planet.

'Survive' and you are still their slave, which will quickly become even more obvious.

So a survival plan for the family is just a baseline. They want to keep us separated and infiltrate anything that is not separated in order to divide it and defuse it. It always works, unless you know that's what they aim to do. And if we don't thus just splinter apart, then they'll paint it as a 'cell', and describe its leaders as "Nationalist demagogues", or outlaws, or mere 'racists', and they will take great efforts to impute they are dangerous 'terrorists'. And thus bring THEIR 'State' (the Inside-Job) to bare to crush whatever part of it they can.

But they can only do it, if the public buy this crap, and agree with that characterization.

The problem for them is; we can awaken in really big numbers. There are billions of us and a very small number of these usury slavers.

So they want to pay the bought 'police' and judges and Politicians to control the Internet, to try and stymie it.

A literal Neo-Conquistador "Thought-Police", is what they now require and desire.

The author of '1984' was also of usurer ancestry, and he prepared the way for what he knew was to come, from the usurer slavers, and here it is, about 20 years late. But as their Thought-Police controls and censorship improve, their propaganda will be intensified and seek to take over all avenues of free or open discourse, of anything of the nature mentioned above. And they don't intend to just censor it, they intend to ruthlessly eliminate any possibility of it's re-emergence.

That's when they will be able to openly use Gestapo-like tactics all the time, and drones with Hellfire missiles at 3AM with abandon. You can bet they will be harvesting human organs as well. There's always a sweet profit to reap if you have zero scruples, or any sense of moral conscience, for mere rebel slaves and 'terrorists'.


They can pretend to be 'part of us' but cancer is also 'part of us'. But that does not mean it's not a mortal threat, We unreservedly have the JUST RIGHT to cut it out completely and fight to totally eliminate that "part of us", the destructive 'growth' that's trying to pretend it hasn't already taken us over. And is now busy attempting to pretend this wasn't really an "inside-job", by a completely double-dealing clique of duel-national traitors.

Literal premeditated traitors, without any true sense of belonging, or honor, or allegiance to the society they live in, and into which many of them were borne, and prospered within. They have been turned against the local Goyim slaves from an early age, and commanded to hide their barely-contained disdain and racism. They are a genuine fifth column and they are in all our lands in significant numbers and they live very-high-on-the-hog that they did not work for, nor deserve. A people who although superficially like us, are profoundly foreign and an anti-thesis to "our best-interests", and to our social unity, and national health, and to our Common-Wealth, which they have only fattened in order to plunder.

If it's us, or it's them, then by 'God', to Hell with this pustulating a-moral scab of inbred degenerate muck.



How's that for some improved situational awareness?

Thanks. What can I say. The usurers are a self-contained inspiration. Too many are asleep. It's high-time we made a whole lot of noise. In a real war there are losses, people cop it in the neck. I accept that, we all should, we all in fact will, as it's not like we can just wish it away now.

We didn't start it, but we are in it - and do we want to lose it?

No. So it's time to wake up.

This is too intense; I can hardly handle it.

I am young but I have seen everything written above in society well before I read this. I seen it and became frustrated and confused. Why would people live this way? Why do people exisit, live and work and die miserable and bitter? I would much rather be poor but FREE. I would much rather NOT mortgage a 5 bedroom house for then next 40YEARS of my life then work 60 hours a week at a job I hate, going nowhere on the corporate tredmill for those same 40YEARS- life wasted away and left burned, bitter and weak. I would gladley NOT have a brand new BMW and be FREE. I would much rather retain my individuality, creativity and humanity then become the prototype corporate PAWN.

When I awakened to these feelings it was as if a personal crisis  had occured. Everyone around me judged myself and everyone else on their house, their job, and their car and here I was disavowing the entire idea. I no longer fit into society, I now have completely different goals- I've stopped chasing the house and the car and the job, all while my family, friends and seemingly society as a whole looked at my actions and screamed "NO!! what are you doing!!" I began to pursue freedom from debt, freedom from the corpoRATe RAT race; I desire self reliance and admire the men of the past that lived humble but completely FREE.

Thank you for this. Thank you ZH, thank you Element for opening my eyes- my awareness of all of this made me feel isolated and crazy but now I see that this awareness is SHARED AWARENESS and this is HOPE for the future that I thought I had yet to find.

You are not alone. And you’re mentally already in a process to being free of the straitjacket of the fake reality.

In many parts of the world basic minimal physical freedom is a disappointing flop.

You are still relatively lucky, but we both know it can be made much better. You always have to do some of what you would prefer to not do. But there is a place, inside, when you are in that situation that is completely free, and can’t be taken-over and ruled or enslaved. You can't live for you family, and they can’t live for you. At best, you can only help each other, and you should if that is viable. Your family can protect you for a time but then you just have to say, “ok, this is how it really is, I accept that, and my mortality, and my vulnerability to what comes.” Be it a Hurricane, a thug, a slaver employer, or the IRS, or a disease.

And when you discover inner strength, peace and perfect resolve, and make no mistake it is THE discovery of your life, then you will not be troubled, you will have had an inner 'revolution', and you will exude this, in whatever you do, from there on.

Don't expect others to understand any of it, they almost certainly won’t. No one gets this if they don’t work for it.

You are correct to reject the meaningless and the shallow and tempting and dissipating at a young age. It is very good thing that you implicitly grasp and ache deeply as that means you can see through to the real worth of things. And it means you will ‘find’ real worth, if you stick to that dissatisfaction.

That means you will develop real values, and no one will ever have to ‘educate’ you as to their fake ‘values’, and can not lead you astray, or trick you, not for long anyway.

Whatever your thoughts focus on amplifies. Thought is a feedback loop and amplification is a process of replicating and adding to what is in the loop. The usurers and propagandists know this, very clearly, they invented the field of psychology to leverage the inner-war, and further it aims to conqueur us internally. They have tried to infiltrate us on every conceiveable completely devious level. 

So they keep throwing utter nonsense and lies in our path to get our thoughts to amplify and loop that drivel internally instead - i.e. instead of looping and understanding what they are doing all the while. You go through early-life feeling increasingly ill from this process, (some simply go mad, some take their life, some just go zombie) and one day you look down to discover that a snake was biting you on the leg all along, injecting poison. Now you know it's there. It's something they made monumental efforts to stop you from noticing and understanding.

The world we live in, now, that you are feeling disappointed with, is the inevitable result of this. You are entirely right to be internally shattered by how debauched and disappointing it is – this was their plan. Smash your will - inside first - then the exterior would be a pliable supplicant weakling. That is what the propaganda is for.

Don't amplify what they serve up, don’t impair your brain, enjoy its clarity, and power to see deeply into things. It is your greatest asset and weapon, and they know it. They must sabotage it and fill it with lies for that very reason. All that stuff stops it fully functioning, especially the chemical abuse and 'medications'.

It’s time to turn down the volume, stop the feedback loop, and have the inner-space and mental strength to understand their war on our minds.

This is what you family any friends don't yet understand, and may never, and why you, "don't fit in", anymore. Don't worry about not being like the rest, that is unfortunately normal in a world and with minds that have been so systematically exposed and bastardised by such an unrelenting rain of propaganda, that the world has never seen or experienced it before. If you don't fit in, because you don't buy it, then you are very fortunate, and very lucky, to have made it this far, basically still intact inside.

Once you understand what they have done to you, and to your family, you are going to become the sort of person we all need to turn them back. I assure you, they will be afraid of your unstoppable inner strength because they know that mentally you have become unstoppable.

Strengthen others.

You were borne into a war. I’m really sorry that has happened.

It’s a very nasty war, and at the present a lot of it is in the internal domain, a cerebral pre-war, to soften us up, but with an equally ugly outside expression that is amplifying with the internal one, that you clearly and naturally can't bare to see develop. Inner or Outer – they are the same war.

This pre-war is coming to a defining moment of truth when the real fighting starts everywhere, we are close, but take deep breaths and step back and reflect on what you are in, don’t be rash, consider what is happening so you don’t make things worse for you, and those who amplify the good in Human Beings.

If you find others as dispirited as you are via being borne into this world of war help them to understand, to become clearer on what’s taking place inside and outside (if you feel ableto, and not just going to create unhelpful confusions, or resentment. Exercise judgment and be smart, don’t ever create needless offenses – the usurers want us to do that, and dissipate in that way).

Any 'goodness' you feel, for want of a better word, it's not outside you, it is in fact - YOU. That's no joke. Not a mere claim. It isn't there without you, it is inseparable from you, because it is you. You can bring it with you and amplify that goodness, subtly in the world, anywhere you are. And I guarantee you most people will ‘vibe’ off that.

And the ones that don’t, they are not amplifying goodness.

It is as simple as that. But this does not mean they can’t they just have to stop their loop of amplifying badness. And don’t get all 'missionary' about this, and think that's a job for you. That is their job, no one else’s. No one can make them stop - but them. There are no 'conversions' to something, there is just helpful instruction, and then take it, or leave it.

That goodness in you is what you really are, so let that loop play itself. Enjoy that and learn always, but also accept that war gets real nasty, and unbearable at some point, often for long periods of utter bleakness and monumental evil. You will see this as well. You will probably have to fight. You did not pick this fight, you were dropped smack into the middle of it on birth. Now, what do you want your child to be borne into?

Don't fear it, for that fear is what you then become, and you will amplify that, and the goodness will drain away, and we won’t get the world and the peace we need without that goodness remaining in us, even in the brutalist damage of the physical combat.

We are going to be the destroyers of the destroyers. Get your head around it, see it within your mind’s-eye, the day it’s over, and what you want to be, as a person, on that day, and if you do that, you will not go wrong in this process of war between now, and that point, so that others are not borne into this slavery war.

We did not start this, but we are going to have to put an end to it. And people are going to be destroyed, and you may be one, but do what you know will bring what you need in this world while you can, and you never know, it could, overall, turn out far better then we think is possible now.

The reality though is, wars recur when people willfully amplify badness and lies flourish to cover it up - these behaviours always come back and seek to consume all. There is no 'final' peace, just as there is no continuous war. There is just the NET result of what we globally amplify and allow to form the basis of this feedback loop.

That ultimately is why 'morals' are there, to establish what it is we amplify in this world, and to manage the result. Morals are not there for to please some prudish 'Priest', of some daft religion, or for some phony notion of a particular God, or to please some endlessly corrupt and corrupting Govt, or to make 'authority' figures happy. 

Morals and our establishement of goodness is to help stop young people being plopped down into the middle of such a war, and into slavery, on birth.

There will be a lot of good with the bad to come, there always is, and in the end you’ll be so glad you got to live in this time, and would not swap it for anything.

This is too intense; I can hardly handle it.

I am young but I have seen everything written above in society well before I read this. I seen it and became frustrated and confused. Why would people live this way? Why do people exisit, live and work and die miserable and bitter? I would much rather be poor but FREE. I would much rather NOT mortgage a 5 bedroom house for then next 40YEARS of my life then work 60 hours a week at a job I hate, going nowhere on the corporate tredmill for those same 40YEARS- life wasted away and left burned, bitter and weak. I would gladley NOT have a brand new BMW and be FREE. I would much rather retain my individuality, creativity and humanity then become the prototype corporate PAWN.

When I awakened to these feelings it was as if a personal crisis  had occured. Everyone around me judged myself and everyone else on their house, their job, and their car and here I was disavowing the entire idea. I no longer fit into society, I now have completely different goals- I've stopped chasing the house and the car and the job, all while my family, friends and seemingly society as a whole looked at my actions and screamed "What are you doing!! Are you crazy lol." I began to pursue freedom from debt, freedom from the corpoRATe RAT race; I desire self reliance and admire the men of the past that lived humble but completely FREE.

Thank you for this. Thank you ZH, thank you Element for opening my eyes- my awareness of all of this made me feel isolated and crazy but now I see that this awareness is SHARED AWARENESS and this is HOPE for the future that I had not yet found.

 And I thought coming to work today would be a complete waste of time..
