Guest Post: Hey You

Hey you, out there on the road
always doing what you’re told,
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall,
Breaking bottles in the hall,
Can you help me?
Hey you, don’t tell me there’s no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall.

Pink Floyd – Hey You

  

“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.” Aldous Huxley – Brave New World

The world makes less sense every day. Little children are randomly slaughtered in their schoolrooms. Predator drones roam the skies over foreign countries exterminating bad guys, along with innocent women and children (collateral damage when it occurs in a foreign country). Drugged up mentally ill kids with no hope and no future live lives of secluded quiet desperation until they snap. Ignorant, government educated, welfare dependent drones with no self respect or respect for others, assault, kill and rob within their government created urban jungles. Sociopathic criminals who committed the largest financial crime in world history walk free and continue to occupy executive suites in luxury office towers in downtown NYC, collecting millions in bonuses as compensation for crushing the American middle class.  Academics, whose theories have been thoroughly disproven, continue to steer our economy into an iceberg while accelerating the money printing and debt issuance that will sink our ship of state. Corrupt, bought off politicians pander to the lowest common denominator as their votes are only dependent upon who contributed the most to their election campaigns, which never end. Delusional, materialistic, egocentric, math challenged consumers (formerly known as citizens) live for today, enslave themselves in debt, vote themselves more entitlements, and care not for future generations. The alienation and isolation created by our sprawling, automobile dependent, technology obsessed, government controlled, debt financed society has spread like a cancerous tumor, slowly killing our country.

Pink Floyd released The Wall 33 years ago. It was a concept rock opera album that explored the issues of ababdonment, isolation, alienation, authoritarianism, the brutality of war, a tyrannical conformist educational system, and the walls individuals and society build to protect themselves from having to confront reality and deal with the consequences of their actions. I attended the Roger Waters Wall Concert this past summer at Citizens Bank Park with my three sons. Three decades later, the message is more powerful than ever. The government oppression and never ending wars waged by the American Empire around the world have created a society built upon fear and loathing. Roger Waters’ vision is colored by Orwell’s 1984 dystopian nightmare of lies, misinformation, propaganda and brutality. The missing piece, which Waters didn’t see coming in 1979, was the ability of the oligarchs to use their control of the credit system to entrap the masses by convincing them to love their servitude and become so consumed with material possessions and the love of money that they would become nothing more than passive egotistical consumers.

Since 1979, Total Credit Market Debt in the United States has risen from $4.3 trillion to $55.3 trillion, a 1,286% increase in 33 years. Over this same time frame total wages and salaries have risen from $1.3 trillion to $6.9 trillion, a 531% increase. GDP has grown from $2.6 trillion to $15.8 trillion, a 608% increase. Luckily for the oligarchs, the math challenged masses don’t understand that 375% of the increase in GDP is strictly due to Federal Reserve created inflation, as the U.S. dollar has lost 68% of its purchasing power since 1979. This GDP growth was driven by debt, with consumer expenditures rising from 61% of GDP in 1979 to 71% of GDP today. In the one hundred years since the creation of the Federal Reserve the country’s population has tripled, while our public debt and unfunded liabilites have risen from $2 billion to over $200 trillion, a ten million percent increase. The masses have been programmed and conditioned to love their debt servitude and yearn for more debt to fix an economic system that collapsed due to excessive debt. The cadre of ruling elite are obliging by creating debt at hyperspeed levels. The corporate media, Wall Street shysters and low-life captured politicians assure the sheep-like masses that this is normal and beneficial to their interests, as the sheep are sheared and led to slaughter.               

“There are some ideas so wrong that only a very intelligent person could believe in them.”George Orwell

 

Pavlov’s Dogs

   

 “And always, everywhere, there would be the yelling or quietly authoritative hypnotists; and in the train of the ruling suggestion givers, always everywhere, the tribes of buffoons and hucksters, the professional liars, the purveyors of entertaining irrelevances. Conditioned from the cradle, unceasingly distracted, mesmerized systematically, their uniformed victims would go on obediently marching and countermarching, go on, always and everywhere, killing and dying with the perfect docility of trained poodles.” -  Aldous Huxley

Aldous Huxley and Edward Bernays realized in the 1920s that the utilization of conditioning and propaganda techniques could be used to control and manipulate the masses. Ivan Pavlov, the famous Russian physiologist, conducted the ground breaking work on conditional reflexes. Pavlov discovered that when a bell was rung in subsequent time with food being presented to a dog in consecutive sequences, the dog will initially salivate when the food is presented. The dog will later come to associate the ringing of the bell with the presentation of the food and salivate upon the ringing of the bell. To a critical thinking human being who questions authority, resists being told what they should think, and values their humanity, over what is crammed down their throat by government run schools and the corporate controlled media, the thought of being treated like a dog is revolting. But to people like Edward Bernays, who believed manipulation of the masses by an invisible contingent of intellectually superior men, conditioning the minds of the masses through propaganda was a necessity in a democratic society to keep the herd under control.

Just a cursory examination of our society reveals a population of salivating consumers (dogs) who can be stimulated to buy the latest iPhone or techno-gadget with a simple Madison Avenue advertising campaign (bell). Everyone has seen the videos of the masses lining up like cattle on Black Friday, stampeding through aisles, and fighting each other like their the entertainment at Michael Vick’s house on a Saturday night. All the mega-corporate retailers and the corporate media have to do is ring a bell (SALE) and the dogs start salivating. Product placement, Hollywood star endorsements and influential people using a product immediately convince the easily manipulated dogs to salivate and purchase the products. The difference is that these dogs have credit cards issued by the Wall Street banks and funded by the Federal Reserve with dollars created out of thin air.  We are inundated with millions of TV, newspaper, radio, billboard, and internet advertisements designed to make us salivate (spend). Huxley’s dystopian vision of a society whose economic values, in which individual happiness is defined as the ability to satisfy needs, and achievement as a society is equated with economic growth and prosperity, has come to full fruition. He never conceived of consumers having the ability to consume without even having the money to do so. The credit card became our form of Soma. The so called progressives point to our ever increasing “advancements” in technology as proof that our society is progressing. Huxley knew otherwise, decades before we reached this disgusting point in history:

“Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.” -  Aldous Huxley

In reality our “technological progress” has done nothing more than create a humorless, shallow, superficial world of alienation and egocentric desires. Just as in Huxley’s Brave New World, science and technology have not been used to seek truth and advance our culture. They have been used by the State to sensor, control, and monitor the citizens. They use technology as a means to create electronic entertainment machines that generate both harmless leisure and the high levels of consumption and production that are the basis of societal stability and state designed happiness. When those in control talk about progress, they mean greater control over our lives. When the consumption of material goods isn’t enough to fill the holes within our souls, our owners are quick to prescribe a pill to smooth over those feelings of unease and discontent. In Huxley’s novel the population voluntarily consumes Soma to dispel any anxieties or negative emotion. The saying was, “One cubic centimeter cures ten gloomy sentiments.” In America the government controlled drug industry has thousands of pills to treat every ailment or unhappy thought that might ail you. Just don’t try and treat yourself with an unapproved natural or banned substance. The threat of imprisonment always lurks in the shadows. They just want us to be interchangeable bricks in the wall.

And the Worms Ate Into His Brain

“The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does. They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted.” -  Aldous Huxley

 

 Hey you, out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, don’t help them to bury the light
Don’t give in without a fight.

Pink Floyd – Hey You

The tragic deaths of twenty children and six adults in Newtown, Connecticut this past week and the similar tragedies in Aurora, Columbine, Virginia Tech and Tucson are a reflection of the twisted society we’ve created. The progressive control freak do-gooders that believe the government can solve all problems and improve our lives with another law or regulation, have as usual come to the wrong solution for the wrong problem. Stricter gun control laws would not have averted this this tragedy. Connecticut has the 5th toughest gun restrictions in the country according to the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence. The guns were purchased legally by the mother of the killer. Mentally deranged people should not have access to guns, knives, automobiles, gasoline, or baseball bats. The real issue is not what he used to kill these innocent people, it’s what caused him to snap. Those in power want to divert the attention from this crucial question. In Huxley’s novel the characters do everything they can to avoid confronting the truth about their own lives. They try to alter reality by ingesting Soma, encouraged by the state as the ultimate form of willful self-delusion. Soma clouds the realities of the present and replaces them with happy hallucinations, and is thus a tool for promoting social stability. America has taken Huxley’s dystopian vision to an extreme. There are millions of children in this country being drugged on a daily basis to keep them under control. A majority of the mass murderers were taking psychotropic drugs, including the mentally deranged killer this week. These killings are a result of the state sponsored drugging of children, a culture that promotes narcissism, broken families and our technologically enhanced suburban sprawl isolation from human relationships, love and compassion for others.

We glorify technology even though it encourages the building of brick walls, creating a self-imposed isolation from society. The traditional family unit has been discarded, with 50% of marriages ending in divorce and 43% of all children born out of wedlock. Millions of families are dysfunctional, with parents too busy with their careers and acquiring material possessions, to bother with raising their children in a loving nurturing way. One in ten American adults choose to escape their man made cells with prescription anti-depressants. Almost one in four women in their 40s and 50s are popping pills to escape their depressing lives. Huxley envisioned a Soma Nation. America is a Prozac Nation. The wealthy think medicating their kids, spoiling them with toys, gadgets and cars, and occupying their days with organized sports and activities passes for involved parenting. Poor urban children are lucky if they ever lay eyes on their father. Ignorance, violence, and dependency are a given for most of these kids. And all of these children are matriculated into the government run schools whose sole purpose is to teach kids what to think, rather than how to think. Our owners need to keep us “happy” and focused on feelings, material possessions, and an infinite number of distractions, so they can retain control and continue their pillaging of the national wealth.       

Our leaders have attempted to design their own Brave New World, retaining control by making America’s citizens so contented and superficially fulfilled that they no longer care about their personal freedoms, liberties and civic responsibilities. The consequences of increasing state power are a loss of dignity, morals, values, and emotions. We are losing our humanity. The society created by Bernays and his minions who occupy the executive suites in NYC and slither through the halls of Congress has been built upon destroying all human truths, such as love, friendship, community, and personal connections. Decades of media propaganda, public education mind control, and peddling of debt convinced the majority that happiness meant immediate gratification of our desires for food, sex, drugs, clothes, iGadgets, and all the other consumer crap made in corporate sponsored slave labor factories across Asia. These delusional hallucinations of happiness are the prison walls we’ve built brick by brick.

 “This concern with the basic condition of freedom — the absence of physical constraint — is unquestionably necessary, but is not all that is necessary. It is perfectly possible for a man to be out of prison and yet not free — to be under no physical constraint and yet to be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national State, or of some private interest within the nation, want him to think, feel and act.” -  Aldous Huxley

It took the intellectuals and progressives that wield power across the land only moments to hijack the feelings of sorrow and pain sweeping the nation, to misdirect attention from the mental illnesses caused by the society they’ve created, towards the false storyline that gun violence is sweeping the land. In reality, violent crime has been falling for over a decade as gun sales have soared. The homicide rate in this country is the lowest since 1964, with the vast majority of homicides occurring in the urban kill zones created by the five decade long progressive war on poverty. The truth is of no interest to those brandishing power. After decades of conditioning, the masses are psychologically captive to the messages designed to make them salivate. They will be compelled to think, feel and act as instructed by the Alphas. There will be calls for more police, despite the fact that police rarely stop a crime. With all of their armaments, technology, high powered weaponry, and political clout, they can be counted on to arrive five minutes after the tragedy is over. But they are brilliant in luring clueless Muslim teenagers into terrorist plots, picking the target, providing the fake bombs, and taking credit for foiling the plots they created. More union police officers will increase our safety as much as more union teachers have made our kids smarter. This tragedy will be used by the propagandists to impose further restrictions upon those who choose personal responsibility and self-reliance over dependency and trust in the efficiency and fairness of our benevolent government overlords.

As the father of three sons I can’t imagine the pain, sorrow and emptiness the parents of these beautiful children must be experiencing. The grief is overwhelming. I mourn for the children and adults slaughtered by a mentally deranged young man created by our truly perverted culture of alienation. I mourn for the children being raised in a society run by evil psychopathic liars that use the power of propaganda and the tools of debt to control and manipulate its citizens. I mourn for unborn generations that will be forced to confront the dreadful depraved chaos created by our culture of egocentric greed and narcissism. The things we value in this culture – accumulating wealth, outward beauty, acquisition of material possessions, instant gratification, access to debt, government control, and curing our ills with drugs – are driving us insane. Who is really abnormal in a profoundly abnormal society? Believing that possessions, more laws or another medication will truly make us happy is insane. Popping a pill, buying a new iPhone, or passing another law will not cure the disease that permeates this nation. We need to recapture the humanity, civic pride and self-responsibility that built this country. Only an awakened populace can change our course.

Huxley feared that our desires would ruin us. Orwell was afraid that what we fear would ruin us. The oligarchs have pushed the Huxley vision to its sustainable limit. The avarice and greed of these invisible power brokers has devoured the vast resources of the nation. These psychopaths weren’t satisfied with siphoning off most of the wealth of the country. They wanted it all and wrecked the global economy in their odious pursuit of mammon. We are now in the death throes of the most decadent, delusional, debt engendered era in the long history of mankind. Those in power realize it is slipping away. Their “solutions” reflect an air of desperation. Their propaganda efforts have been redoubled. As more middle class workers lose their jobs, more young people graduate from college with tens of thousands in student loan debt and a future of dramatically reduced expectations, and more people are driven beyond their breaking point, this materialistic shroud of happiness will be torn asunder. Anger is building like a lava dome within a volcano. A critical thinking minority are questioning the motives of those in power. The unsustainability of our economic paradigm is certain. The seeds of revolution are being sown. Our society is only fantasy. The wall is too high. It will be up to an irate tireless minority of freedom minded citizens to tear down the wall. The alternative is to allow the worms to eat into our brains. Each of us must answer a simple question. Are you just another brick in the wall?

But it was only fantasy.
The wall was too high,
As you can see.
No matter how he tried,
He could not break free.
And the worms ate into his brain.

Pink Floyd – Hey You

 

The oligarchs will not give up without a fight. Their realization that the Brave New World method of controlling the masses has run its course has convinced them to shift their methods towards Orwell’s 1984 tactics. In part two of this series – Mother Should I Trust the Government? - I’ll address how the use of fear, war, pain, and surveillance are becoming the new controlling method of the oligarchs.

Well said, Jim Quinn.  This is actually a difficult concept to put into words.

Long before, Bernays was utilizing powerful socially based messaging, perceptions managemant, to effect the very same behavioral responses.

To wit: the 1929 Easter Sunday debutante smoking parade in NYC....
Generally referred to as "Torches of Freedom" which is credited with changing virtually single handedly, the very perception of women and smoking, forever.

I KNEW IT! Big pharma killed those children the same way they killed and butchered a little girl in our state.

cougar_w's picture

It isn't an excuse just because it might be a fact. A lot of societal ills are the results of corporations using their freedoms of speech to convince people (starting in childhood) to do things to themselves that enrich the corporations at the expense (physical, mental and financial) of the individual. They do so knowing the result will be lost lives and lost consumers of their products or services, but don't particularly care, because new people are entering the pipeline every day ripe for the taking.

It is a form of predation. They are eating us. Though they eat some of us more readily that others.

Could you please provide the primary source link, from the US Senate, where it says that Peter Lanza, a "Tax Director and Vice President - Taxes at GE Energy Financial Services" based on his LinkedIn page, was scheduled to testify over any Libor related issues.

If you hang on for a minute ~ I think I can come up with something on Holmes... I ran across it back in mid-July (right between the Aurora shootings & the Olympics timeframe)... At least the part about the connection to FICO & Libor...

Give me a bit (or I'll post it in a later thread)...

~~~

Edit: These weren't the links that I was searching for, but they are compelling nonetheless...

To satisfy anyone's appetite in the mean time... One could easily SEARCH [Holmes + father + FICO], & there's tons of stuff out there... I can't ascertain the validity...

I always tend to work backwards... IOW ~ if the 'official' story is full of holes [or, too fast to publication, or too convenient], I'm a skeptic... 9/11 taught me that... So did:

- The USS Maine

- The assasination of Lincoln

- Ft. Sumter

- The Lusitania

- Pearl Harbor

- The Gulf of Tonkin

- The Kennedy Assasination

I apologize in advance for being such an idiot, so as to believe EVERYTHING I was taught in school...

Hello Tyler,

Only reference media is

Which seems too overstretched. Another theory is elite clandestine wars from an OBVIOUS source :)

True is usually in the middle- bloody culture mixed with psychodrugs and paranoia used by special service forces for their purpose.

c'mon falak, there's no concrete evidence in that article.   you or i could have wrote that article for shits & giggles.   this is DisInfo 101, more fodder to divert attention from the legitimate questions on the inconsistencies that surround the official "narrative".  shit like this is what gives tinfoil a bad rep, which is precisely the fucking point.

It's a good thing we are a small club, and largely powerless.

In another sense I like to think that what we're doing on ZH is sharpening our meat hooks for the run-down of the American empire. It's going to be sad and brutal. There will be a lot of crazy people doing crazy things, but also a lot of good people doing amazing things too. The hours spent here tweezing apart the elements of this trajedy will be useful when the incoherent mobs form in the square demanding blood from some hapless and innocent subgroup of their neighbors. We will have alrready wrestled with enough blind hate and dark paranoia that some of us will then be able to turn that situation around, finding more profitable labor for unfocused anger.

A small club setting sharp hooks and pulling down the false gods of failure. But we're not a bad bunch when you get to know us.

Aurora Ex Machina's picture

Good man.

Cut yourself from the InfoWars disinfo camp, sensible ~ +$ to you.

Hint: if you think security services leave such obvious trails, you're an idiot. "Murdered ex-Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko worked as a paid agent for the British security service MI6, it was sensationally claimed today". [source] It took 4 years for that obvious piece of knowledge that we all knew to come live; and that was a message from Moscow to London, deliberately made obvious. (What's the rumour? That Putin loves poison to make a point, due to KGB background? Who would possibly poison a spy trying to get nuclear material out of Russian facilities with radioactive material? And not only that, they made sure that he voluntarily took the payload back to the UK [hint: the tea poisoning is a lie, just fluff])

BlackOps? 15-30 years. If you're programming people, you're really not giving those obvious links. Car accidents are far more common. Or, you know, what happened to that Banking whistle-blower. No, not that one hung from a bridge, the other one in the Caribbean. There's a few million mentally ill people on the streets or in institutions if you want to practise your zombie weapon psych tests.

 

Your mind is an incredible linkage machine; the trick is over-seeing and patrolling those linkages. Don't get sucked into the bollocks.

I guess I should apologize for ever thinking that WT7 fell down for any OTHER reason than a fire (which was caused by debris came cascading over from two other buildings that were struck by airplanes comandeered by boxcutter weilding ragheads who managed to not only slip by authority, but close down NORAD for a few hours in two of the most tightly guarded civil airspaces in the world & knock down 3 steel framed buildings in the same day [a feat that had not EVER happened to ANY steel framed building in history)...

Truthers ~ They sure do mess with your mind...

Aurora Ex Machina's picture

No, but there's a difference:

What you suspect you merely keep in the mental folder of "probability"; what you can prove you keep in the mental folder of "ammunition", and you'd better learn encryption and USB drives and sharing that info if you get burnt (remember, even WikiLeaks got burnt when the 2nd in command got sold off to the MS red-headed vixen to his desires and he burnt all the data).

Are you that stupid you don't know the principle of "plausible deniability"?

Heck... I shouldn't tell you this, but whenever you see a black-eyed person without any color in their eyes but black (no whites) or find a couple of people (usually male & female) singing in a language you don't understand who will be very friendly... yes, you should probably skip out quick, unless they're there for you.

 

Well. If you're that aware, they can see you too. And that's only the cusp of the matter. The other ones are a little more weird.

francis_sawyer's picture

All I fucking know about 'plausible deniability' is that it's the first & last line of defense in any caper perpetrated by the global elite...

~~~

You know how I know this?... EASY ~ Because If francis_sawyer was that rich & powerful, I'd probably have to pull the same fucking shit... Not because it's in my nature to do so, but if you're BORN INTO that crime syndicate you either go along with it or get KILLED for swimming against it...

Me?... Nobody gives a fuck about what I say (or have the power to pull off), so I can do whatever the fuck I want... It's the ONLY FREEDOM I enjoy (which is more freedom than the elite themselves actually have)...

So fuck them... Come & do it!... Put a contract on my ass... Rub me out... People like VAST-DOM & his vast empire of 'semitically correct' ball lickers & scrotum tasting society will drink a toast [because SURELY the world will be a better place after francis_sawyer is gone]...

Aurora Ex Machina's picture

Here's a serious tip:

Let it go. Enjoy life, the small things, revel in the dawn. If you're where you think you are, then, no, you're not worth the contract. Take a small blade, look at the moon, cut your hand and claim neutrality under the Goddess.

The more important question is how important your connections to others are. Love them, love yourself, never love the inanimate objects that surround you. It's not hard.

Oh, and "lol". Someone is running around "junking" all my comments. Think I'm anything but amused? Nope. I find it odd that someone would be so hurt by my comments, they'd need to do that.

 

 

Walk away. Enjoy your life. There's not much left of it. If you can't influence the meta, then ignore it: only ever add your +information and +spirit, never anything else.

 

As I said... It's not rocket-science.

 

 

francis_sawyer's picture

Is that supposed to be like, some kind of Zen bullshit?... Here's some advice:

If you can't influence [francis_sawyer], then ignore him: only ever add your +silence, never anything else...

No, it's saving your life.

Rule #1: Lions, Tigers and Bears.

Unfortunately, a large part of the modern World has never tasted liberty, so Orwell's 1984 seems like a reasonable and safe place to live.  But as Benjamin Franklin said, Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

What if I told you it's always been Orwell's world and we are merely seeing what happens in Orwell's world when the oil wells dry up, resources are unavailable and the scavengers dismantling the system of any copper scrap are the outcome.

 

Google copper theft camera systems.  The powers the be put them up, same day stolen, striped for copper and then more than likely sold right back to TPTB.  Since the power that be aren't replacing the systems.  Scavengers are starting to target hospitals now, rail lines, sewer covers, etc.
