Order Out Of Chaos: The Doctrine That Runs The World

Tyler Durden's picture


Submitted by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market blog,

“From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.”


- Winston Churchill, February 1920, in an article that appeared in the Illustrated Sunday Herald

The concept of conspiracy frightens some people, so much so that they are willing to overlook any and all evidence that world events are for the most part directed, rather than chaotic and coincidental. For those who are uneducated and unaware, explanations for the terrible tides of politics and war generally revolve around a false understanding of Occam’s razor. They argue that the theory states that the “simplest explanation” is usually the correct one for any particular problem or crisis. But Occam’s razor actually states that the simplest explanation according to the evidence at hand is usually the correct answer for any given problem. That is to say, the simplest explanation must conform to the evidence, or it is likely not correct.

Unfortunately, “skeptics” of directed conspiracy often turn a blind eye to evidence that is contrary to their simple explanations, while arguing that simplification is its own vindication. In other words, they don’t feel the need to defend their simplistic world view because, in their minds, simplicity stands on its own as self-evident. There was a time when men believed that the planets revolved around each other because they were tied together by long glass strings, and this was evident to them because it was the simplest explanation they could come up with. The thinking of skeptics of the New World Order and concerted globalization is much like this.

The most common argument they tend to exploit is that the world is far too “chaotic” and that if the elites are actually seeking a fully centralized one-world system, they are “failing miserably” because so many cultures are so clearly divided. For anyone who holds this argument as logical or practical, first I would suggest they look beyond the surface of the various conflicts at the similarities between these so called “enemies.”

For example, what about the United States versus Russia? These two nations have a long history of opposing ideologies and have come close to war time and time again. Certainly, average Americans see themselves as individualists and Russians as socialist or communist. Average Russians see Americans as capitalist imperialists and see themselves as humanists. But what about their respective governments? What about their respective financiers and oligarchs? Do they really see each other as enemies?

If that were so, then why did American Wall Street tycoons and the U.S. military aid the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917?

A false paradigm was created when internationalists supported the Bolshevik Revolution and allowed Russia to become a communist-held country. The eventual Cold War that resulted created the rationale used by the military-industrial complex to build a massive standing army (which is not part of the U.S. Constitution), an army which could then be sent around the world to subdue various nations and even possibly be used to oppress the American people.

Even today, the false East/West paradigm continues, with America painted as the bumbling villain and Russia painted as the stalwart and reasonable objector. Yet Russia’s top government officials and our top government officials work closely with and answer to the same international financiers and elites, like the International Monetary Fund and the Bank of International Settlements, as I outlined in great detail in False East/West Paradigm Hides The Rise Of Global Currency and Russia Is Dominated By Global Banks, Too.

Even closer to current events, the U.S. has now entered into military operations against ISIS insurgents moving rapidly through Iraq’s northern regions toward Baghdad. However, if ISIS is the enemy, why did the U.S. and our ally, Saudi Arabia, support and train ISIS agents in Syria as well as Iraq?

Is it just irony that our government helped birth ISIS and now the White House is at war with the group? Or is it possible that maybe, just maybe, a greater plan is afoot?

As the sinister Rahm Emanuel famously said: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

If a crisis of opportunity does not present itself in the time frame you need, why not ENGINEER a crisis to fit your goals? This is a tactic that has been used by elites for generations, and it is called the Hegelian dialectic.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel’s work was the very foundation of the collectivist/socialist ideology, and it inspired Karl Marx during his writing of The Communist Manifesto. Hegel was an avid statist who believed that the collective must be ruled and directed by centralized governance and that all individualism should be sacrificed for the greater good.

Hegel wrote that the state “has supreme right against the individual, whose supreme duty is to be a member of the State… for the right of the world spirit is above all special privileges.”

In his dialectic theory, Hegel conjured a strategy by which the establishment elites could control the masses through deliberately created division. To define the Hegelian dialectic method simply, the ruling body must first trigger a problem or crisis that causes the citizenry to react with fear and demand a solution. The rulers then offer a solution, which they had already predetermined before they had started the crisis; this solution would usually entail more power for the elites and less freedom for the citizens.

The world appears divided and chaotic exactly because it has been MADE that way by a select few in the globalist establishment. In fact, if you were to name any war in the past 100 years, any competent alternative analyst would easily produce undeniable evidence of the involvement of international banks and think tanks pulling strings on both sides.

If you don’t understand the concept of “order out of chaos,” then you’ll never understand a thing.

Engineered chaos serves several purposes. It provides distraction and cover for the elites to implement other plans that they would rather not have noticed.

It also provides a scapegoat for the masses, who are now divided against each other. When violent changes are implemented that produce destructive consequences, the people must be placated with an easily identifiable villain. Certain changes globalists wish to make in the way the world functions require the careful exploitation of scapegoats.

For example, the globalists at the IMF have been discussing the establishment of a global basket currency for years to replace the U.S. dollar.

Russia and the East have also, conveniently, been calling for the IMF to replace the dollar with their Special Drawing Rights basket.

And finally, as well as conveniently, the elites in the U.S. government have launched a controlled coup in Ukraine and initiated direct economic confrontation with Russia, thereby giving the East the perfect excuse to dump the U.S. dollar as world reserve and replace it with a basket currency system under the IMF. Despite claims that Vladimir Putin is “anti-globalist,” the Russian is in fact an avid supporter of the IMF, and has stated his goal is to continue Russia’s IMF membership in a larger capacity:

"In the BRICS case we see a whole set of coinciding strategic interests. First of all, this is the common intention to reform the international monetary and financial system. In the present form it is unjust to the BRICS countries and to new economies in general. We should take a more active part in the IMF and the World Bank’s decision-making system. The international monetary system itself depends a lot on the US dollar, or, to be precise, on the monetary and financial policy of the US authorities. The BRICS countries want to change this."

Yes, Vladimir, and so do the manipulative social engineers at the IMF...

Hopefully, you have the sense to see how this works: problem, reaction, solution. Economic or physical war is launched between East and West, while the dollar is killed in the process. The masses react by demanding a fair and balanced replacement for the dollar as world reserve so that economic stability can return. The Americans blame Russia and the East for their fiscal misfortune. The East blames the hubris of the West for its own downfall. Neither side blames the banksters, who started the whole calamity to begin with. And the elites swoop in as saviors with a new Bretton Woods-style agreement to appease all sides and cement their global currency system, the system they had always wanted. And with a global economic currency and authority in place, global governance is not far behind — order out of chaos.

This process is more psychological than political in its goals. One could argue that if the elites already have control of all central banks and governments, then why do they need a global government? The answer is that these men do not want secret global governance, they want open global governance. They want us to ACCEPT the idea as a fact of existence, for only when we agree to participate in the lie will they then have truly won.

The end result of World War I was the creation of the League of Nations and the argument that sovereignty leads to disunion and catastrophe. World War II led to the creation of the United Nations and the International Monetary Fund. I believe that a third world war is nearly upon us, one that may involve weapons of monetary destruction more so than weapons of mass destruction. Each supposed disintegration of global unity has eventually led to greater centralization, and this is something the skeptics seem to forget. The progression of crises suggests that the next war will lead to total globalization under the dominance of a minority of elitists posing as "wise men" who only wish to bring peace and harmony to the masses. In the meantime, the skeptics will continue to mindlessly debate in the face of all reason that the whole thing was a fluke, an act of random mathematical chance, leading coincidentally to the one thing the establishment rulers crave: total global totalitarian micromanagement.

The Hegelian dialectic is the main reason I do not concern myself with "illegals," gays, gay marriage, abortion, niggers, Muslims, etc.

I only concern myself with Restoring the Constitutional republic and the American people to the American country by ousting the DC US usurpers and occupiers.

An American, not US subject.


The Four Rs
Rejection: Quit paying, quit obeying, quit playing
Revolution: It is inevitable, so prepare, as they are.
Retribution: The guilty must answer for their crimes against the American people and the Constitution.
Restoration: Restore the American people, country and Constitutional republic.

Of my own volition and for personal reasons, I am asking that the Tylers delete my Zero Hedge account.  I have been wrestling with this decision for long enough, and now it is made.

It has been a great run for me here at the World's Biggest And Funnest Playground™, but the time has come for me, an impulsive fellow, to leave.  It is time for me to read & listen more, and spout less.  I'll be reading ZH as an outsider from here on.

There are so many here I would like to thank over these years, but the list would be long, and I would surely forget many names, so I thank you all instead.

To all of you, peace and farewell.

Why would you down vote this thread? Its inoffensive and reflecting warmth amongst posters.

I happen to have been kindly helped personally by DoChen, someone I have never met but he went on a limb simply to be helpful and kind.

Be smarter and be kinder; peeps with key boards and red arrows are not as impressive as men who actually help by doing something.

I burn some time here as well and have been thinking of a sabbatical to actually produce something - but frankly my day job as an SEC investigator gives me a great deal of free time; and porn can only consume 20 hours or so per week...

There's a strange sense of obligation to remain informed about all the problems going on in this world, especially if one has kids. It get's to the point though when it must be realized there isn't a damn thing we can do about it any more. I've been thinking that I waste an awful lot of time reading about things that I didn't cause and are completely out of my control so why bother? I don't know but maybe this is what DCRB is thinking.

Be as prepared as possible and that's about all we can do. Success is measured by the laugh here at Half-a-Day Farm.

Your decision to read and listen more is admirable, but I'd urge you to reconsider removing yourself completely from discussion.  There's this thing called moderation....

Your remarks were always worth reading and added to the discussion.  I will miss them. And I wish I could say that about more of the commenters here.  

Think about this (because I know you'e been here for a while):  Shameful was my favorite commenter at ZH and every time I scroll through the comments I hope to see something from him.  Wouldn't it be great if he'd resurface once in a while?  See what I'm getting at?

If you wnat to spend less time blogging (a huge time sink, to be sure), then the simplest thing to do, is to change your password and lose it.  This will prevent you from being tempted to blog again, and force you to create s new ID -- which you obviously would not do.

Asking Tyler to delete your comments seems excessive.  But now that you have your own blog site up and running, is it that you don't want your profile associated with ZH any more -- for

I feel your sentiments DoChen, but the Tyler's don't seem willing to respond to these requests. Perhaps rightfully so. The knowledge shared here is a heavy burden, one that requires an outlet. Zero hedge is the perfect place for that. This is a misunderstanding I had, among many, when I began posting here. It seemed to me the information shared here should be put to practical use. That was a silly notion, the true purpose of ZH is now clear to me.

I'm of the opinion the Tyler's do not delete accounts for the simple reason that you will always be welcome to return and take a load off. In these trying times that can literally be worth it's weight in gold. It won't be easy to watch the events ahead unfold, I believe everyone of us will have our own war to fight, but at least here at ZH there will be people who understand the difficulty.

God speed man, I wish ya the best!

Do Chen, you obviously signed up to Z/H because you saw likeminded

thinkers. William Shakespear wrote in Romeo & Juliet.... 'too much honey confounds the taste'. Z/H can be information overload at times I've noticed myself. Eat a can of Tuna to boost 5H-T and read some contemplative writers. Think for a while and then when you feel like writing again, and you feel inspired to write, come back to Z/H where you obviously have online friends. I happen to think you are into solitude to get creative. Go be creative and contemplative in solitude but remember where the likeminded folks are and eventually come back. At least that way one is not purposely burning a bridge or saying chow forever. Ontologically, you will be back on Z/H whether you think so or not. In brief, on a long enough timeline we will all find ourselves on Z/H theoretically and literally.

Quantum Physics would have it no other way IMHO. Just as bearings go round so too does ontology. When your mind feels like saying something on Z/H let that mind speak, Do Chen. Do not sign off of Z/H. Hotel California has no taxi to take you to the airport!!!

I totally understand.  Often I am tempted to give up the ZH addiction.  My hope has been that I'd help some honest thinker once in awhile, and if lucky, find someone to join our collaboration.

Though most of my comments get a lot of up-arrows, I get the impression they're from like minded individuals, not people I'm really helping in any significant way.  But of course I can't know for sure unless someone follows up with evidence in their reply.  Nobody with talents and interests (or funding) to join or help our endeavor has appeared either.

So... why do I waste my time?  Good question.

A Chinese acquaintence of mine who lived in the USSA for many years is looking for a small, simple business to start in Chile.  Would you be interested in helping them start a similar or offshoot of your biz in Chile?  Or do you think Chile is not a good target for this sort of biz (too many suppliers already, perhaps).  Anyway if you want me to put you in touch with them, let me know (here or by email to my ZH username at ymail dot you know what).

I hope you find better ways to spend time than posting in ZH.  Wish me the same.  And the will to actually stop, of course!  Others may not understand why you need to go "cold turkey" with ZH, but I do.

John Perkins has an Interesting Point of View

He says that our NGO Organizations and our American Help actually prolong the Status Quo and the Misery. It is on Purpose too. The US Aid system allows more arms and money for arms to continue to flow into "unstable" regions. We do this so that we can buy the ore, precious metals, resources, or oil on the black market. I don't know the whole particulars. But we set up a system of sending in Aid workers, Peace Corps workers, and others who think they are going to teach new technology to the poor people. But the people actually have been farming for hundreds of years and can better teach any one else how to farm and profit.

Why have arms been flowing into Africa each year? Because of the System, the Western Colonial System or whatever you want to call it. The system is window dressing.

We want cheap resources and war and conflict allows soldiers to go in and get them and sell them cheaply to companies that supply to US Cell Phones and Computers.

Our dumb College kids are sent there to help, but really are just an expense that confuses or drags down democracy.

Another excessively optimistic article, which presumes that the ruling classes are not criminally insane, and have not created so much chaos that they have actually lost control of everything, and so, there may never be any new order emerge out of that. I am not disputing anything in that article above, almost all of which I was already aware of. What I am saying is that what worked for thousands of years has become rampant criminal insanity, that is not going to work for anyone!

To emphasize those points, I emphasize this previous article, and put that inside of a bigger context:’ve-opened-gates-hell

We’ve Opened the Gates of Hell

Cognitive Dissonance had asked:

"When will the madness stop?"


At the present time, the main dialectical debate in my mind is not the social insanities surrounding atomic energy, but rather the bigger picture about climate change, which I could currently summarize as my attempts to guess which one of the following views will turn out to be more correct:

Guy McPherson versus Ben Davidson


Basically, are changes in the combined Sun/Earth magnetic systems going to give us a temporary break from the otherwise apparently runaway feedbacks of greenhouse gas mechanisms? (At the present time, I feel I am clutching at the straws of some reasonable hope for the former, to postpone the latter.)

THE WAYS THAT ATOMIC ENERGY WERE DEVELOPED WERE THE SPEAR POINT OF THE WAYS THAT A SOCIETY DOMINATED BY LIES BACKED BY VIOLENCE DID EVERYTHING WITH ATTITUDES OF EVIL DELIBERATE IGNORANCE. In my view, the irreconcilable social polarization trends are trumped by the irreparable destruction of the natural world trends. Those two trends are in vicious spirals with each one enabling the other. The problems of apes with atomic bombs were compounded by the ways that every economic decision was always made on the basis of the biggest bullies' bullshit prevailing, because everything was driven by the ways that lies were backed up with violence. Since nothing could stop that happening, nothing could stop the pattern of evil deliberate ignorance dominating the development of atomic energy, the same as everything else.



Personally, after several decades of attempting to do something about those trends, I have abandoned all reasonable hope for the future. In my own little life, I would say that conclusion became clear since about 2008 onwards. I no longer am able to maintain even the slightest shreds of idealistic optimism towards the foreseeable future. I have concluded that the triumphant control of civilization through enforced frauds, so much, for so long, enabling so much evil deliberate ignorance, about everything, from atomic energy on down, has already accumulated to the point of being irreversible.

That madness is NEVER going to end, but rather get worse, faster, for as long as we are still alive to be able to observe that happening ... Since all those trends follow exponentially accelerating, self-reinforcing paths, the time remaining for our lives to still feel somewhat "normal," or even within the "new normal," is disappearing. Some of us, in more privileged environments, may well have some years left to look forward to being able to act in our accustomed ways, inside of a "new normal" that has not yet gotten too extremely abnormal. However, depending upon the outcome of who turns out to have been more correct, Guy McPherson or Ben Davidson, as I linked above, then the next few decades could become MORE ABNORMAL THAN WE CAN CURRENTLY IMAGINE! At the present time, I am personally betting that Ben Davidson provides some correct qualifications to Guy McPherson's views. Therefore, I believe that we may have some more time, inside that bigger picture, to allow the other basic forms of runaway madness, such as the MAD Money As Debt systems, backed by the MAD Mutual Assured Destruction systems, to play through.

I now believe we have already reached the point where nothing remotely like the civilization that we knew will be able to survive through to the 22nd Century. There are no good reasons whatsoever that I can perceive to enable believing that human societies will stop being controlled by lies backed by violence, so that our problems are "solved" in ways that actually make them worse!

IF any human beings are still alive in the 22nd Century, then they will be living in ways which are impossible for us to imagine now, because virtually all of the natural world that we now take for granted will be gone by then. At the present time, I believe that the Sun is giving us a break from the consequences of the greenhouse gas mechanisms. However, basically, I still believe that human beings burning all the fuels that they could, as fast as they could, has practically cancelled out any future that I would like to imagine. Of course, the ways that atomic energy did that was the most extreme example, however, everything our civilization did with its advancing science and technology was done of the basis of that society being controlled by enforced frauds, which enabled attitudes of evil deliberate ignorance. When I look around at the world today, I see no good grounds to believe that madness will ever end. The same basic mechanisms of lies backed by violence, through vicious spirals of social polarization, are obviously getting worse, faster, while the background events of the overall destruction of the nature world are trumping that, in ways whereby their runaway exponential accelerations are only just beginning to be noticed, before their next few doublings become an overwhelming avalanche of changes.

Anything which causes civilization as we know it to be unable to continue, will leave several hundred nuclear power plants in the lurch, as places of the maximum environmental destruction, surrounded by overall globalized environmental destruction. After worrying about that for several decades, and doing everything I possibly could to try to prevent that from happening, finally, during the last seven years, or so, I have come around to conclusions that nothing is going to stop that.

Example of how bad things seem to really be:


"Pacific Ocean Now Dead From Fukushima Radiation"

The same severely devastating destruction
out on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

Pick whichever disaster from the palettes:

During the previous 150 years, the vast abundance of sea life in the Pacific North West has been 99% wiped out. It was already 90% wiped out a decade ago, during the previous Century or so. However, the destruction has been accelerating drastically, as the videos linked above demonstrate has happened even out on the wilder west coast of Vancouver Island, like it has on the inside passage between that Island and the mainland. IT IS HARD TO WATCH THOSE TWO VIDEOS AND HAVE THEIR MEANING GRADUALLY SINK IN, THAT 99% OF THE ONCE ABUNDANT LIFE ON THE COASTS OF THE PACIFIC NORTH WEST IS GONE ...

It is in that context that it does not surprise me that there is apparently enough evidence that the recent Ebola outbreak started in a very suspicious way, that indicates there may have been criminal negligence, or criminal insanity, behind that. Overall, there is now overwhelming evidence that human societies were controlled by lies backed by violence for so long, so much, which facilitated attitudes of evil deliberate ignorance, which have set up the conditions where the accumulating disasters have been picking up size and speed at an exponential rate, so that things even a few more doubling times into the future are impossible to fully imagine.

As with the death of the Pacific Ocean, that has been getting worse, faster, for a couple of Centuries, from whaling, on through to over-fishing generally, to which was then added every kind of chemical pollution, with the radioactivity from Fukushima being the latest layer of destruction piled on top of all the rest, so that, as I said, the life in the Pacific North West, which was one of the last places that the European Invasions put on its map, have systematically wiped out more and more of the natural environment there, so that there are now only a few junk species left that can still survive.

The same patterns of evil deliberate ignorance that we saw in official lie after lie, behind building the atomic power plants, and then attempting to cover up the facts about their disasters, are the same with respect to the slow motion train wreck of the Pacific Ocean ecologies, and those same patterns are now being found, for instance, in the ways that the Ebola outbreak is manifesting.

Add all the other level after level of similar sorts of human driven disasters, that have all been driven out of human control, and I no longer perceive any feasible ways to cope with these runaway sorts of problems ... I can not imagine actually doing anything but continuing to watch, and wait, as all these kinds of trends automatically continue to get worse, faster. The final results of the human world being dominated by enforced frauds are that we have behaved with so much evil deliberate ignorance towards what we were doing, for so long, that it now appears too late to stop what has thereby been caused to happen.

There seems no point to reading news articles, nor posting any comments, that I can see ... but then, there is nothing else which is possible to do either. People who talk about being prepared for this emerging series of disaster after disaster, multiplying each other, appear to me to be delusionally optimistic. The more you know, the worse it gets ... to the point where there no longer are any possible ways to be prepared, nor respond to this overall runaway social insanity situation, which has allowed its consequences to develop to the point where there no longer are any ways that human beings could bring these runaway trends back under control.

The madness is NEVER going to end! Although I agreed with everything that this recent article by Brandon Smith stated, I no longer believe that it matters much. It is excessively optimistic to believe that the rulings classes are going to bring back order out of the chaos that they have created. The developments of technologies which are trillions of times more powerful have transformed the agenda of the ruling classes into out of control criminal insanities.

Last winter when news media speculated about a connection between the Fukushima nuclear disaster and the sea star die-off, researchers at UC Santa Cruz, who have been monitoring Pacific tide pools for decades, posted on their Sea Star Wasting Syndrome Updates page that, “there has been substantial speculation in the media that the disease could be a result of increased radiation from the nuclear power plant disaster in Fukushima, Japan. We have no evidence to suggest that radiation is a likely culprit.”

I am NOT sure that the Fukushima radiation, by itself, caused the apparent mass extinction. What I am sure of, from watching those two videos that I linked, (as well as many other sources of information) is that there has been an obvious mass extinction of life along the coasts of the Pacific North West. (The starfish die-off, that the news media somewhat covered, was one one small aspect of that.) I think that the general chemical pollution was as much to fault as any additional radiation. (I doubt that the radiation from Fukushima did more than add another injury to the overall accumulating effects.) However, the basic FACT is that the oceans are dying! That fits into all of the rest of the trends and predictions, regarding WHY I assert that the destruction of the natural world trumps the problems of social polarization. Making political arguments which ignore the background biological facts, such as that the oceans are dying, is grossly mistaken, because social polarization IS TRUMPED by destruction of the natural world!

Meanwhile, most of the world of finance operates through its fraudulent accounting fantasy land, which is thought of through a sort of sublime economics, which has no relationship to real ecologies. Most of what people talk about in the context of class warfare tends to take for granted the general background of the natural world, as something which can continue to be taken for granted. People presume we can continue to fight amongst ourselves, with the winners taking all. What I seriously worry about is that everyone is going to end up losing. Nobody is going to win!

I agree with you Radical Marijuana. There is no possible way to get out of what is about to manifest and no matter how much hubris 'the elites' think they have it ain't going to get them where they think they are going to go. There is no hope whatsover and I am with you on the impossibility of such a feat of 'restoring order'. The notion is futile at best. As a believer in God, I have marked the date of March 10th 2008 @ 11:00am Bear Stearns time as being the start of 'the graet tribulation'. The Bible gives us seven years from that date if my calculus is correct. I am related to Sir Issac Newton so I might have an edge here somewhat. ;)

Well, I believe that Energy is Spirit, so that some signatures of God are the apparent principles of the conservation of energy and momentum. I believe that energy will be conserved. However, that does not mean that times of severe social storms can be stopped from happening, after so much energy has been pumped up into making them. In my view, the only thing that compares to these times were the times billions of years ago when life developed photosynthesis. There is nothing in human history which remotely compares to these times of exponential progress in science and technology.

It is an open question whether or not that progress in science can survive its consequences, especially since the first things done with new technologies tended to be making new weapons. I like to propose the idea that we need a series of profound paradigm shifts, or intellectual scientific revolutions, which would be applied to politics, in order to perhaps survive through the development of exponential progress in science and technology. However, so far, we have mostly used powers which were trillions of times greater in the most evil, deliberately ignorant ways.

It is almost impossible to imagine what a society would look like that became more scientific about itself. In my view, that would require a creative synthesis of post-modernizing science with ancient mysticism. That would mean going far back before the Bible, in order to then be able to go far beyond the Bible. Personally, I regard the Bible as being a small part of the data base. However, I do take your point that Issac Newton, one of the greatest giants in the history of science, was also seriously concerned with mysticism, as understood during his times. I think that mainstream science today is a tragic victim of the biggest bullies' bullshit dominating the development of the philosophy of science, just as that dominated every other social enterprise.

I like to day dream about the possible emergence of a transnational scientific community, which may be forged by surviving through the times of tribulation ahead. I do not think that one needs the Bible to predict that runaway exponential growth can result in a boom leading to a bust, and that the biggest boom, will result in the biggest bust. I believe that we are necessarily headed through the psychotic breakdown of the established social systems based on enforced frauds, and that, there must be times of severe social storms, or tribulations, which may well be metaphorically interpreted through various possible readings of the Bible.

However, I am not now confident that "we" will survive through those processes. I am not sure that science will not end up paradoxically destroying itself, by enabling a society based on backing up lies with violence to become too madly self-destructive, not only of itself, but of the natural world around it. At the present time, the dominant groups of human beings are acting with extreme attitudes of evil deliberate ignorance, which are surely going to be the source of the worst suffering in the foreseeable future!

However, the existence of severe social storms does not change the laws of nature, but only demonstrates how those could manifest. In ancient Sanskrit there was a word "Rudra," which meant divine violence, which could include anything from asteroid impacts, to super volcano eruptions, etc. ... Man-made natural disasters are possibly on that list of RUDE things that can happen, to make us cry, at that tragedy. However, those events still operate with the Spirit of Energy.

There is no doubt that, at the present time, the human species is causing the mass extinction of many other species, and is doing so with an attitude of evil deliberate ignorance towards the consequences of even doing that to mankind itself. At the present time, given the degree to which society is dominated by the people who were the best at being dishonest, and backing that up with violence, who directed the progress in science and technology to be applied to make weapons, and rape the natural world, we are clearly headed towards mad self-destruction.

I would like to minimize or mitigate that. However, I can not imagine anything remotely possible which can practically do that at the present time. The established economy IS based on runaway systems of enforced frauds, and within that context there are no practical ways to change the political processes, which were made and maintained in those ways, so much, for so long. The established systems are controlled by money, in vicious spirals of madness, while nothing outside of that madness has much effect upon that!

Destruction of modern civilization and population is a mathematical certainty with p=1.0. What remains after that destruction plays out

will be self guiding. This civilization is running off the rails like Lemmings off of cliffs. It is human nature to build these systems that fail after a century or so. Some civilizations last for centuries and other last for thousands of years. Modern Capitalism is not such a system that survives for any length of time before the currency falls prey to

deflation/inflation and an expected crash. The Western model of Capitalism has run a normal lifecycle in terms of currency and it is time to renew the world and people with the sort of revolution that will bring about the kinds of qualiative/quantitative changes we are collectively seeking to better our lives and the lives of our offspring.

The USA and the Western World are at a crossroads on every level of being and life now. It is incumbent upon us to come up with the solutions we will collectively need to survive and live past the current impossible situation that we are all in now. Empiricism has never let me down in my entire life and I don't believe it will ever let me down as a guiding theory of what needs to be done in the

aftermath of what we are about to witness en masse with this current World. The politics will eventually get ironed out along with

corruption, disinformation/truth et cetera. We are inherently warmhearted people with spirit and the requisite intelligence to

maintain our being and what will be left of civilization. The hawks will not win at war and the doves will always survive in some form or another. Spiritually, in the Anglican tradition, 'the World is without end'. Ontologically, 'the World is without end'. Following the logic of Quantum Physics and Quantum Mechanical Engineering/ Quantum Theory, the World is without end. Epistemologically, the World is without end. In brief, energy does not just disappear as you correctly assert above. Existentially, conciousness just changes shape when we die. Life is good and I love Theory. ;)

As has always been, those who create the destruction all around us offer themselves up as the only solution, and the policies and actions that brought us to this point the only salvation in the doubling down thereof. Chaos has always been their tool of choice to force change from the desperation of the population, but they can only direct the chaos, not ultimately control it. It will reach a critical mass that will exceed all limits of control. We will all be likely praying that God actually does exist, because all other hope will be gone.

Holocaust Honor From Israel Is Sent Back After Gaza Deaths
THE HAGUE — In 1943, Henk Zanoli took a dangerous train trip, slipping past Nazi guards and checkpoints to smuggle a Jewish boy from Amsterdam to the Dutch village of Eemnes. There, the Zanoli family, already under suspicion for resisting the Nazi occupation, hid the boy in their home for two years. The boy would be the only member of his family to survive the Holocaust.

Seventy-one years later, on July 20, an Israeli airstrike flattened a house in the Gaza Strip, killing six of Mr. Zanoli’s relatives by marriage. His grandniece, a Dutch diplomat, is married to a Palestinian economist, Ismail Ziadah, who lost three brothers, a sister-in-law, a nephew and his father’s first wife in the attack.

On Thursday, Mr. Zanoli, 91, whose father died in a Nazi camp, went to the Israeli Embassy in The Hague and returned a medal he received honoring him as one of the Righteous Among the Nations — non-Jews honored by Israel for saving Jews during the Holocaust. In an anguished letter to the Israeli ambassador to the Netherlands, he described the terrible price his family had paid for opposing Nazi tyranny.

“My sister lost her husband, who was executed in the dunes of The Hague for his involvement in the resistance,” he wrote. “My brother lost his Jewish fiancée who was deported, never to return.”

Mr. Zanoli continued, “Against this background, it is particularly shocking and tragic that today, four generations on, our family is faced with the murder of our kin in Gaza. Murder carried out by the State of Israel.”

His act crystallizes the moral debate over Israel’s military air and ground assault in the Gaza Strip, in which about 2,000 people, a majority of them civilians, have been killed. Israel says the strikes are aimed at Hamas militants who fire rockets at Israeli cities and have dug a secret network of tunnels into Israel.

Mr. Zanoli transformed over the decades from a champion to a critic of the Israeli state, mirroring a larger shift in Europe, where anguish over the slaughter of six million European Jews led many to support the founding of Israel in 1948 as a haven for Jews worldwide.

But in the years since Israel occupied the West Bank and Gaza during the 1967 war, Europeans have become more critical. Israel blames anti-Semitism, which has grown in Europe with the rise of right-wing politicians. Some European protests against Israeli military action have been marred in recent weeks by open anti-Semitism, blurring the line between criticism of Israeli policy and hate speech against Jews. But many other critics, like Mr. Zanoli, say their objection to Israeli policy is not anti-Jewish but consistent with the humanitarian principles that led them to condemn the Holocaust and support the founding of a Jewish state.
“I gave back my medal because I didn’t agree with what the state of Israel is doing to my family and to the Palestinians on the whole,” Mr. Zanoli said in an interview Friday in his spare but elegant apartment, adding that his decision was a statement “only against the state of Israel, not the Israeli people.”
“Jews were our friends,” said Mr. Zanoli, a retired lawyer who uses a motorized scooter but remains erect and regal, much as he appears in a yellowing 1940s photograph archived at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem.

Mr. Zanoli said he had never publicly criticized Israel “until I heard that my family was the victim.”

In Gaza, Mr. Zanoli’s in-laws say his gesture is a fitting response to the losses of their family and others who have lost multiple relatives in strikes on homes. Those in-laws include Hassan al-Zeyada, a psychological trauma counselor who is an older brother of Ismail Ziadah. Their mother, Muftiyah, 70, was the oldest family member to die in the bombing.

Like Mr. Zanoli, Dr. Zeyada, 50, who works to treat the many Palestinians in Gaza traumatized by war and displacement, has given much thought to the fact that Israel was founded after the Holocaust, one of history’s greatest collective traumas.

Dr. Zeyada, who transliterates his family name differently from his brother, said Friday that he admired Mr. Zanoli and his family for their struggle in World War II against “discrimination and oppression in general and against the Jews in particular.”

“For them,” he added, “it’s something painful that the people you defended and struggled for turn into aggressors.”

Brandon Smith seems to be living in a land of delusion if he thinks

'the elites' will ever bring 'order out of chaos' after the USA crashes

into Chapter 11 wholesale. When the FED 'Greenspan bubble' pops

there is a little mathematical matter of a $1.4 quadrillion petro-dollar

derivatives universe that will unwind whether 'the elites' like it or not and there is absolutely nothing that 'the elites' can do about it because the $1.4 quadrillion derivatives universe does not differentiate between 'the elites' or 'the masses' that 'the elites' had tried to enslave for over a century. Karl Marx was spot on when he claimed that the masses would rise up and overthrow 'the elites'

to eventually come around to a socialist system. Americans just can't take the fact that Capitalism is dead and so is Elvis. Dream all you want about the good old days of 'American Exceptionalism' and

'Capitalist elites' because that is all you will ever have left of the lies that Americans have been force fed for over a century. Americans are in a bankrupt country that has a destroyed superstructure and is not going to rebuild by simply opting for a re-set on 'cap n' trade'

or 'carbon based trading'. The failure of the entire superstructure of the USA manifested in a split second of time when expectations changed on trades with Bear Stearns on March 10th 2008 @ 11:00am. The end of American Hegemony occured in that instant

and American Hegemony is completely defunct in today's contemporary historiography of global economies proper. Americans

are deluded en masse and will die out as a people as they had planned to do to all other countries in the world with the exception of the USofA. In brief, American are sliding down a razor blade going 500,000 miles per hour and using what's left of their balls as breaks,

and they are about to fall into a pit of iodine, as they say. I think I'll run with the skeptics on this one, America.

i think we need to consider what they mean by order.  this is a concept different than what most believe.  The NWO is satanic at the core.  and while even most conspiracy theorists will dismiss what I am saying, look hard enough and the picture begins to emerge.  They are waiting to remake the world in a satanic image, with themselves as a protected elite, ruling over a planet of slaves.  order will be maintained through a level of brutality that few can imagine.

The Satanic order you are referring to was taken down on March 10th 2008 @ 11:00am Bear Stearns time. Their plans of complete totalitarian control were thwarted at that instant and the 'Illuminati'

does not have the mathematical knowhow to figure out what went wrong with their carefully crafted 'Ponzi/pyramid' scheme. I know exactly what happened and I assure you that 'Skull N' Bones' does not

know shit-from-shine-O-la apart from theater. The great conspiracy to

control the world ended on March 10th 2008 with the downing of Bear Stears. The only mind in the world that was smart enough to figure it out before it happen was Dr. Rajan. No ther Economist

in the world actually figured it out before Dr. Rajan did. Within our current world population Ragurham Rajan is the smartest Economist

the world has ever known. He warned the motherfucker Banksters of the world at a world Banksters meeting and Larry Summers told him he was acting like 'a Luddite'. Larry Summers is the dumbest man in the world and Ragurham Rajan is the smartest. Further, the 'establishment' is already running scared with Ferguson and they have opted to put new management in the form of policing with 'The Hiway Patrol' instead of the old police force because they cannot afford to piss the American people off more than they are presently. Don't ever kid yourself here, the USA elites are frightened out of their minds and do not know what to do about their situtation. The hawks want war but everyone knows that will further bankrupt the USA quicker. There is no way out for the USA

and they are going down for the count for sure.

last seven days and the articles speculating on their take down.

Watch Frontline's _Inside the Meltdown_, and _Breaking the Bank_.

john39, you use the term "Satanic" and others use the term "Luciferian".  I find it extremely difficult to believe that in this day and age, highly intelligent, well-educated and extremely informed Elite would worship anything at all (in the classic sense of worship), least of all "Satan" or "Lucifer".

I submit that even such clubs/orgs/groups use it as nothing more than a "Flag of Convenience", and that whatever rituals and mumbo-jumbo they might practice, is nothing more than a gimmick for its leaders to control its members.

Verily I say unto thee that... mankind shall never grow up and be free until it has outgrown its childish myths and superstitions, childish fairy tales.  We should not bend our knees, bow to or "worship" any self-proclaimed deity -- until they've shown some ID, and impressed us openly, publicly and massively with technology, energy levels and intellectual concepts that go WAY beyond the quaint tribal drivel that we call "religion", and goes way beyond what we today consider as "wisdom".  IOW... I'll settle for nothing less than a Type II or Type III Galactic Civilization on the Kardashev scale (  All the alleged miracles/wonders of the Bible is stuff we can do today or in the next few decades.

Sorry buddy, but my standards and requirements are much, much higher and tougher than that of 99.99% of the populace, when it comes to any "Deity".  And seeing that you're a smart, rational and reasonable/reason-able guy, I hope that your standards are high also -- in spite of the biblical reference of your stage name.

p.s. The only literal "worship" of this mythical entity that people call "Lucifer" (Light Bearer) or "Satan" (Adversary) is if they found archeological evidence of a crash-landed UFO, and an angel-like humanoid enity, whose DNA they are trying to use to bring it/him back to life -- in the form of an Alien-Human hybrid.  In that sense, and using Biblical passages for inspiration, they can make the Antichrist a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Kirk I always enjoy your posts, even occasions such as this where you propose intelligence and belief in a higher power are mutually exclusive.

Ironically, search for meaning in the secular world leads many to conclude God is real. There are many famous examples of scientists who became believers in a higher power after spending their lives believing in randomness. Faith is everywhere in the secular world but since it is a faith unaffiliated with a religion it flies under the radar. Evolution, global warming, carbon dating are examples of faith based “science”. At their core, each example demands suspension of the rules of evidence in order to avoid answering questions that undermine the theory. It may be entirely coincidental these examples were hijacked and promulgated by those attempting to disprove the biblical faith and supplant it with a new system of faith in which man is God.

Of course if you don't believe in God anyway, this notion is foolish. It is always a curious question - why do those who don't believe in God work so hard to prove he doesn't exist?

It is hard to believe anyone with an inquisitive mind can conclude there is such a thing as God or Lucifer because proof is impossible and it becomes a matter of faith. Faith is inherently subjective. A skeptic who demands direct evidence or a scientific approach (e.g. reproducible evidence) will quickly discover faith cannot withstand rules of evidence. In the biblical view this is known as the parable of Doubting Thomas.
