The Five Elements to Understanding the Truth About Everything

smartknowledgeu's picture

Today we live in an age of universal deceit, and as 1984 author George Orwell stated, “In an age of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”  I would amend that statement in regard to financial well-being to read, “In an age of universal deceit, not knowing the truth is a sure path to financial suicide”. Today, far too many people put all their faith in deceitful politicians and bankers to tell them the truth and consequently are dreadfully misinformed. Below, I present to you “The Five Elements to Understanding Truth About Everything”.  In this video, I have come up with five key elements of human nature that one must understand if one desires to really understand the truth about anything. I speak about each of these separate five elements at length.



Please read the provided video description on YouTube to gleam the most benefit from this video

Those that aren't afraid of seeking out the truth will always be more successful in life than those that shun truth or are too afraid to confront the truth. The people in power in top government and banking positions ALL know the truth, so how can it be possibly be advantageous to us to know as little as possible about the breadth of knowledge that they possess? Yet, because the easiest path to take is the path of least resistance provided by the powers that be in their daily bread and circus act, this is exactly the path the majority of us unfortunately choose to take. It is the courageous ones that seek out the truth in the face of ridicule and the angry misinformed opposition of those ruled by emotions instead of facts that are the ones most likely to thrive in uncertain and increasingly risky economic times. One must take the time, if one is to survive these currency wars being enforced upon the world by global bankers, to understand the paradigms used to mislead us and then, learn how to parlay these disadvantages into our advantage. Learn to do this, and the most entrepreneurial of us can thrive even during disastrous economic times.


Here are three quick examples of the universal deceit of which I speak.


Patrick Rock, a close aid of UK Prime Minister David Cameron, of whom Cameron even stated “play[ed] an important role at Downing Street” was recently arrested on child-pornography related charges. What was Rock’s role at Downing Street? – ironically, to craft child porn prevention laws.


In the political hemisphere, CNN reported headlines, “What can Obama do about Russia’s invasion of Crimea?” while other Western headlines blared “Ukraine says Russia sent 16,000 troops to Crimea.” These headlines run in direct opposition to the following facts: In 1997, Russia & Ukraine signed a Partition Treaty that allowed the Russian Black Sea Fleet and up to 25,000 troops, 24 artillery systems with a caliber smaller than 100mm, 132 armored vehicles, and 22 military planes to remain in Crimea until 2017. This agreement was extended in 2010 until 2042.


Thus, any journalist that reports that Russia has invaded Ukraine with 16,000 troops is simply peddling propaganda and serving the same role as Patrick Rock, executing the exact opposite of what their pledged profession demands. Despite what opinions you may have regarding the Russia and US/EU/IMF conflict in Ukraine, to state that Russia has invaded Ukraine is as misleading as running a headline today stating that the US has just invaded Japan with 25,000 troops although the US is allowed 25,000 troops to occupy 14 separate military installations in Okinawa, Japan at the present time. Again, whether or not you agree with the presence of US troops in Okinawa is a completely different topic, as many Okinawans called for the departure of all US troops after 3 US military servicemen infamously raped a 12-year old Japanese girl repeatedly and left her for dead in 1995. However, as the agreements stand now, it would be just as misleading to call the 25,000 US troops present in Okinawa “an invasion of Japan” as it is to call the presence of Russian troops in Ukraine an “invasion of Ukraine”. When reliable sources can prove that Russia has violated the above terms of their Partition Treaty, then one can accurately report that this treaty has been broken. However, please refer to the video below titled "Why Bankers Want Control of Ukraine" to understand that all wars are ultimately a global banking cartel-funded fight to control the debt, money and resources of a nation.


Today, politicians and bankers often say “to hell with the truth" in pursuit of their misanthropic agendas. After all, war is the ultimate racket that distracts people from the truth of a degrading global economic situation. In the US, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen has been very vocally lauding the decline in US unemployment to 6.7% as she testified before US Congress in these exact words: “The unemployment rate has fallen nearly a percentage point since the middle of last year and 1-1/2 percentage points since the beginning of the current asset purchase program.” However, here is the truth about unemployment in the United States. There are about 243 million Americans of working age. At the beginning of 2014, there were 102.2 million Americans of working age that were not working. Does 102.2 divided by 243 yield an unemployment rate of 6.7%? Of course the unemployment rate depends upon the methodology used to calculate the unemployed, but dividing the number of out-of-job Americans by the number of Americans of working age seems like a fair way to derive this rate to me. And why does Martha Stewart go to jail for perjury for 5 months with an additional 2 years of supervision after her jail release, while the Chairwoman of the largest private bank in the United States can lie to US Congress with impunity? (Remember, Martha Stewart went to jail for lying to Federal Prosecutors and NOT for inside trading as many still wrongly believe.)


At the end of the day, only those that have the balance, the calmness and the wisdom to not be misled by their emotions and to see the truth will survive these currency wars. There are bound to be those that are blinded by their emotional allegiance to one of the above topics and therefore let their emotional allegiances cloud and obscure their judgment of simple facts. For those willing to tackle the truth head on, many of these people are not deterred or afraid of how gloomy this truth may be, and instead, knowledge of this truth only increases their resolve to take the necessary action right now. For this group, their future will be markedly more optimistic than those that continue to avoid the truth for reasons as varied as "taking the buried head in the sand approach" to "ignorance as a means to avoid the guilt of being part of the problem". Those that have the courage to act upon the truth will flourish as these currency wars escalate while the rest will suffer great sorrows as a consequence of either their refusal to process the truth when presented with the truth or their fear of confronting truth. While the means of escapism are endless today, I tend to believe that the majority of people in the world know that their governments and bankers are lying to them about the “recovering economy” meme. Most know from direct experience or the witnessed suffering of family and friends that this meme is but a huge lie. However, equally crippling to their financial future is the inability to act in confronting this reality. Most do nothing and just hope that miraculously the economy will recover and things will get better, instead of learning as much as they can right now about what they must do to position themselves to flourish as the global economy worsens over the next few years.


Most continue to believe the commercial bankers’ lies about diversity being the key to wealth preservation and concentration being risky, even though concentrated investments in gold and silver assets over the last 7 years have crushed the performance of diversified US S&P portfolios. So much for diversification being the wise strategy over an extended period of time. Sure, last year was a terrible year for gold and silver investors. That is a fact. However, a more important fact is that those that get caught up in the minutiae of these global currency wars and that are unable to piece together the big picture are those that are eternally and easily distracted from realizing the truth by the one-year schemes conjured up by the very politicians and bankers they detest. Those that have the courage to tackle what will undoubtedly become even leaner economic times in future years around the world right now, as I urged people to do at the end of last year (All the Big Banks are Saying that Gold Will Crash in 2014, But That's Not What Will Happen), and that have the courage to learn about the truth right now will be the only ones that flourish.

About the Author: JS Kim is the Managing Director of SmartKnowledgeU, a fiercely independent research and consulting firm that concentrates on gold and silver as a means of protecting one's assets in the ongoing global currency wars. A $1,000,000 investment in our Crisis Investment Opportunities portfolio since our launch in June, 2007 has outperformed a $1,000,000 investment in the diversified S&P 500 index by a whopping $597,258, despite the S&P 500’s phenomenal 29.6% yield and gold and silver’s signficant drops of -29% and    -37% last year (a nearly $600,000 of additional yield in a tax-deferred account in less than 7 years on an initial $1MM investment in our concentrated SmartKnowledgeU portfolio over the diversification approach, click here for the performance chart). In our opinion, the windows of opportunity in 2014 to position oneself for the future correctly will be limited only to those willing to aggressively seek out the truth.

I wish the word "SmartKnowledgeU" didn't convey the opposite of its intent.  Something lost in translation.  JSK, I suggest you rename your enterprise with a phrase that in English doesn't sound so incredibly clumsy.  I appreciate your work, a better name might help more do the same.

I can't imagine what I need truth for - as long as I have da bible and da gubbermint to tell me whut ta thinks all will be happy!!

Well I did watch the vid, here are the 5 elements;
Understand we live in a world of false information
Maintain a childlike curiosity
Check your ego at the door
Recognize fact vs opinion
Don't be afraid of the truth

All solid points. Few observations. One reason adults curiosity is diminished is because one of the core objectives of institutional schooling is the crushing of curiosity, or the redirection. People not curious about history, nature, world events but can't get enough of celebrity BS or athlete news.

The world is enslaved by lies and deception. Therefore the 'truth' is the mortal enemy of those who control others and profit from the grand deceptions(s). The 'truth' today can be deadly if those who actually know the truth are willing to kill to keep the truth concealed... see recent banker 'suicides'.

Maybe the more realistic goal is not 'understanding the truth', but 'recognizing the lie'. Since in many cases it is impossible being an outsider to discover the facts that only an insider could know.

To truly know and understand the 'truth' one must personally live and practice the 'truth' in their own lives.

Nice summary (and nice use of 'quotation marks').  For those who don't have 45 minutes, just watch the last ~5 minutes (watch the last 9 minutes for a little more).

What is your truth about 9/11? What are you doing about it if anything?

MeelionDollerBogus's picture

What would you do, hop in a time machine? What's done is done. Silverstein & Cheney did what they did, 3 buildings are gone along with a lot of gold, and 10+ years of war for pipelines can't be reversed. It's too late. You don't do anything about it. You position yourself for security & survival. You leave the USA.

The sheeple were trained to believe trust is a virtue; the media is their guardian; and the office makes the man honest.

How does one measure "success" through knowing the truth? Clearly the message for all to see is that being a smarter speculator, and following the lead of your master, is the key to success for now.

But yes, I think we'll find that, in the end, we are as barbaric as the relic we are enslaved to. Fitting indeed?

understanding the truth about everything : now dat is a phrase to be posted on every billboard of every university.

Docet Omnia means we teach everything; its doesn't mean we understand the TRUTH about everything. 

ThAT can only be attributed to the school of the Vatican (victory of divine faith over reason)  or that of Ayatollah Qom's version of Sharia!

In a game that includes either national or global populations, the idea that you can "win" is rather ridiculous. While I understand Mr. Kim is talking his book, every economic law regarding gold, silver and debasement have been broken. This means: one, the market is controlled and thus impervious to "market discipline" and two, the oligarchs retain enough possession or control to dictate metal values and whether they will be allowed to trade freely.

The populations have been educated to be slaves, not free men. While YOU may be capable of parsing the realities of this life, by and large, no one else IS. A revolution of one or two lacks the cohesion and support neccesary for meaningful change. The dampened intellectual condition further exacerbates the problem. Truth, in human interaction, is totally subjective and remains a tease.

There are no frontiers to run to, every country is well within the Elites' grasp. There are ways to make your own life minimally invasive, but that is about as good as it gets. Less an alien intervention (by good aliens) we are destined to enlightened bondage. 

Tell me when we eliminate law, because until then, I will attempt to resolve the chaffing on my wrists and ankles throgh individul rebellion and the establishment of state citizenry status.

Actually you can do more. Produce only what you need. Do not produce "surpluses". As taxes increase and there is less and less income or value-added to tax (and interest is a tax) the system that reward predators and parasites collapses.

Deficits from here to eternity is the best yardstick to watch as the system collapses.

"Russia & Ukraine signed a Partition Treaty that allowed the Russian Black Sea Fleet and up to 25,000 remain in Crimea until 2017. This agreement was extended in 2010 until 2042" - yes, in Crimea, but they were supposed to stay on the Russian military bases, not walking in the middle of the cities with automatic weapons, not blocking roads with tanks, and surely not storming the local parliament building.

And by the way, since they don't have any insignia and do not aswer any questions, how do you know they're russian government troops?  Maybe it's some oligarkh hired Blackwater contractors???

Btw, have you seen many american tanks in the cities near Okinawa naval base?

I understand the point, but where the fuck are the five points. I cant read pablum word for word, you gotta make it skimmable if your'e going to write shitty.

JS Kim states about video, "I have come up with five key elements of human nature that one must understand if one desires to really understand the truth about anything. I speak about each of these separate five elements at length." You need to watch the video to hear the 5 truths. At 40 minutes however, it will take you a lot longer to "be informed" than any ZH article would be to read (or in your case skim...)

Those that aren't afraid of seeking out the truth will often have a shorter than average life ...

I'll take the shorter life over living the bullshit, fraud and deceit propogated by my want-to-be masters.

But the Irish in me will kneecap a few of these slimy thugs before I go.

Full faith and credit bitchez...

In other words, no faith, means no credit.

Only one rule applies now; when fraud is the status quo,

Want to know the real reason the west will leave Ukraine alone?  My contacts in the military are telling me that there is already anarchy in the ranks.  In fact militia numbers may be higher than the number of voluneteer soldiers (although many are in both).  Can't comment on the black ops forces as the CIA really never lets congress know.

Interesting times indeed.

JS Kim,

Take heart mate, all is not lost.

On friday gone the Telegraph published a photo of Cameron looking serious on the phone to Putin, it was roundly, quickly, and seriously ridiculed as the stunt it was.

People are no longer fooled my friend, Cameron is a child in a mans body, just like Obama, and thanks mainly to the internet people have woken up and see through the shit they peddled for far too long.

We are winning.


LawsofPhysics's picture

Optimist.  When is see political and banker heads on fucking pikes, then I might be convinced.

Inthemix96's picture

Cheers laws ;-)

On a different note though, I know some seriously not very nice folks who arent relly enjoying the show anymore, and thanks to places like ZH, they know WHY they dont enjoy it anymore.

If I were a boss man, like Cameron, I would be fucking shitting myself.

There is a reason water cannons were recently allowed on British streets.  And you dont need me to tell you why mate.

Its coming my friend, like a force of nature, it cant, and wont be stopped.
