Here’s the good news, though I don’t know who in the universe to give credit where such credit is due: I retrieved our precious pooch from the wild side.
Was there some Law of Attraction happening there, as I challenged in my last post? I can’t really say, but it makes for a great story. I found him with a pack of dogs, half of them feral. He was injured, limping and highly disoriented. I am still bringing him back to health, slowly. I am bursting with joy he is home, in any case.
Here’s the bad news. Geoengineering is the greatest shell game on earth. It’s a Psy-Op Supreme with all the fixings, being carried out from the very top of the pyramid with far more angles and rabbit holes, trolls and shills than anyone I’ve heard speaking about it cares to admit. It’s a cesspool of cons, collaborators and deniers, just like vaccines.
I am loathe to admit I have also been a loser in this shell game, but I’m starting to get better at it. For starters, I trust NO ONE now. I’ve been a fool, as I started out saying with this series of posts, on a fool’s journey. I’ve supported, in word and even with our hard-earned dollars, some of the very people I now find highly suspect. I will refrain from naming names at the moment, since I have no proof and no desire to slander, but do know I’m watching them all now with far more critical eyes.
I will retract one thing directly I said in just the last post, I will not be studying the work of Michael Tsarion with any more depth, it’s a dead end. I can add him to the growing list along with Stefan Molyneux, Alan Watt, Alex Jones, and several other shell gamers on whom I once wasted time. I now recognize ‘the scent’ of these players; I can hear their NLP tricks (neuro-linguistic programming); I can see their ‘cult of personality’ following and I am out of their loops.
Still, I’m not saying they don’t have some good tidbits to consume, they certainly do, otherwise they would not be where they are. For example, I think Michael Tsarion has some crucial advice about self-empowerment and his work about ‘psychic vampirism’ has helped me understand some of the nature of evil, how to recognize it and to root it out of my own life. His work in mythology and ancient history is also compelling, but lots of folks are doing compelling work in these fields and arriving at far different conclusions. The conclusions these folks are making is where the issue lies.
For example this fascinating researcher who looks like she’s doing some fabulous work debunking the sciences of anthropology and archeology. She’s turned me on to my new favorite word: Quackademics! Now that’s funny! And it’s so true, I can say that after spending over twenty years in the system—the number of blind order-followers there must surely rival the best armies. I listen for her data, her conclusions ring false to me, like all the others. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bk-o42NNQm4&t=63s
“The truth is precious. It is sad that there are so many in our society who have lost respect for it; people who have traded in their conscience and their soul for temporary financial comfort while sacrificing the stability and balance of the rest of the country in the process. The human psyche breathes on the air of truth. Without it, humanity cannot survive. Without it, the species will collapse, starving from lack of intellectual and emotional sustenance.” Tyler Durden http://www.zerohedge.com/news/disinformation-how-it-works
It’s not just sad, it’s devastating and disgusting. These aren’t just little white lies to keep from hurting someone’s feelings; these are blatant and brutal attacks on sanity and consciousness and nature.
From 80 degrees when I went to bed, to icicles when I woke up in the morning. The mainstream weathermen give this incredible shift some ridiculous new name so we think it’s ‘normal’ or at least ‘normalish’. What I do know, without any doubt is, our ancestors could never have survived with such rapid and regular temperature extremes. If the plants don’t like it, it’s not normal.
Two loaded questions, the very first questions most folks ask.
The devils are in the details, the gods in the conclusion. I prefer not to entertain either.
I committed to knowing in the most thorough way, through intuition and reason, the heart and the mind, combined.
But, let me play a god for a spell, why not, it’s such a popular role these days. I’ve told you in advance, so you understand your role too. Your acquiesce, in essence, to this game.
This post is about frustration. I know you need saving, and I can’t save you.
I say this to our land, to the trees here, to some friends, to the universe at large.
There is nearly non-stop air traffic over my head in our rural location, but now several weeks of unprecedented cloud cover make it impossible to see what sort of aircraft are up there.
Nearly the entire month has been overcast, but with very little rain at all. There have been some odd mists on occasion that make me sneeze. The temperatures are expected to shift by 50 degrees in a day once again this weekend. The winds for this front are just picking up–I started a fire against the chill a few hours ago, now I have the windows open, and by tomorrow at this time it will be frigid. That’s what’s been scheduled so far anyway.
“Four seasons in a day.” Where have I heard that before?
The “media” tells me this is “normal”. The very word “normal” is starting to make me very agitated.
Try to find answers to this “normal”, please. Then maybe I will have one more serious person to talk to. Otherwise, spare me, I’d rather talk to the squirrels.
And try to notice the daggers I’m sending through my eyes the next time I hear the word “normal” from anyone.
Q: “Why don’t you send up a drone and get “contrail” samples so we can trust this is not just conspiracy theory?”
A: “Why don’t you get off the internet for a few hours a day to notice the actual world and what’s happening right over your head?”
Q: “OK, so I see these aren’t contrails, but what am I supposed to do about it?”
A: “Something. Anything. Just not the nothingyou are currently doing.”
This week’s bread crumbs, science or faith, you’re still missing the point. Please try to pardon my attitude.
What’s the truth you are unwilling, unable to see? If you can’t handle the truth, if you can’t handle even speculation, what the hell are you doing here?
As a matter of interest to some perhaps, I’m also reading the Bible, a Masonic King James version. I’m often surprisingly inspired by some Bible quotes that get thrown about in popular culture, yet so far all I’ve read about is war and how to prepare for it, and accept it. I’ll spare y’all the direct lines this time around, but I expect we’ll have some fun with them later! 🙂
In case there are a few out there ready for the spinning barrel ride, you know the one, where the bottom drops out?!
I realize there is a war between the so-called “climate deniers” and the ‘global climate change’ enthusiasts and that both sides are trying to defend their positions with science. I am also trying to get my head around this science and following both sides of the argument and it is a heated argument indeed.
What makes me curious is why does such a complicated argument only seem to have two sides. Already this is a red flag for me. No complex issue has only two sides. If the Empire is using an ‘either/or’, it’s black or it’s white, it’s right or it’s left, they are trying to frame the conversation and stir up oppositional debate that is a diversion from the real issues. Climate change is real or climate change is a hoax, that’s the limits of the discussion. You are for, or you are against. You are with us, or you are with the terrorists. The entire public conversation is rife with fallacies and emotional triggers on both sides.
Lord Monckton calls himself “an outsider” in climate science, though he’s been publishing on the topic since 2011. He says he has made a breakthrough, a simple arithmetic error, that will prove once and for all we have nothing to worry about climate change at all. Poof! A simple math problem in the models! We’ve been throwing money and expertise at this problem for decades based on a simple math error. Oh well. We can move on now, thank heavens. Isn’t science wonderful! He makes sure to sprinkle in some good digs for those who are sure to disagree with his refined models, those “bed wetters” and “profiteers of doom.”
What’s left out of the various infomercials-called-interviews he gives, like this one with Stefan Molyneux, is the most important part, the context. In fact, the essence, the very relevance for us average Joes and Janes.
What’s most to fear is Environmental Totalitarianism, he cries! What he leaves out is that this is what both sides want, they just have differing ways of taking us there. The real problem, he declares, is those who haven’t learned logic and critical thinking. He repeatedly insists the scientists are following party lines, then proceeds to make all the science about politics. For or against. Color inside the lines, citizen-cum-consumer.
What about the spraying campaigns, Your Lordship? When can we expect the Solar Radiation Management programs, and the Stratospheric AerosolInjection procedures, and the other various Weather as Force Multiplier missions the military has been cooking up globally for over a decade, when might we expect those to end based on your new models? You know which ones I’m referring to, surely!
I can imagine Lord Monckton’s reply. “No, you are quite mistaken, those are only proposed projects.”
And I am Alice in Wonderland fallen into a time warp, apparently.
All the now well-documented programs the scientific community keeps saying are a conspiracy theory, while the data compiled by now hundreds of thousands of “average” folks around the globe more than suggests otherwise.
It sounds to me, your Lordship, like you might be suggesting they’ve been experimenting with our weather for decades for no good reason at all! And that maybe the major global corporations like Weathermodification, Inc., will soon be going out of business? Could it be?! Do you suppose their vast number of global clients know this yet? What about the curious spike in aluminum futures, might that have something to do with your new findings?
“Weather modification is not the same as climate engineering,” the good Lord might stammer.
What the scientists and the Empire want us to do is ignore our own sensory data. Ignore what your eyes are seeing, ignore what your ears are hearing, and stop saying anything we don’t want you to say. It’s all hoaxes and conspiracy theories, if and until we say otherwise.
As I committed in part two, I will take no man at his word, still some men I trust more than others. I especially tend to trust more the ones who repeat continually, ‘don’t listen to me, do your own research!‘ Like Dane Wiggington at Geoengineeringwatch.org. I follow-up on his claims, I’ve studied his site, clicked on some of the patent links, and listened to every one of his presentations and weekly radio shows. I do not take him at his word, but I listen and I see where it aligns with my own sense data.
What do I know, beyond what anyone tells me, beyond any guru, beyond any faith, beyond any miracles of science or gods, news reports or military propaganda?
These observations did not take any formal training in logic or critical thinking, go figure!
–the weather in my area has gotten warmer over the last five years, based on my own records, and there are more days with 40-50 degree temperature shifts within very short periods.
—winter has gotten shorter and more mild in my area, based on my own experience. The leaves are not falling off the trees as much, but rather dying while still on the branches, this is not typical here.
—the weather FEELS hotter, to my body. The thermometer reads higher temperatures consistently by 20 or 30 degrees compared to normal the last couple years, and rather than building fires in the woodstove this time of year, I have all the windows open and the fans on, and I’m still hot. Due to the fact that the thermometer corroborates my feelings, I do not think this to be the onset of menopause.
–the pond is not full as often and the creek is lower and floods the banks less often, according to the input of my two eyeballs.
–the plants are not well-adapted to these shifts or something else happening in tandem. Gardening over the last few years has become more unpredictable. Many of the plants that normally thrive this time of year look “scalded” or something, which became worse after the last rain. It seems to me the plants do not look happy. (omg, so unscientific!)
–the clouds are very different sometimes, they look different and don’t behave as the clouds of my youth (NASA brags about some of them as brilliant man-made clouds, I think they are gross, but that’s just my preference).
–there is SIGNIFICANTLY more air traffic over our rural area on certain days and in certain seasons. By significantly I mean from zero flights for many days and suddenly flights non-stop for days. This is based on auditory and sometimes visual data of my own mind-body.
–the “contrails” of some of this air traffic do not look or behave as normal contrails, they do not dissipate, rather they expand, and eventually turn the sky a milky or hazy shade of very pale blue or silvery-white, occassionally turning irridescent in spots. I have taken many photos and they look like the photos I see online that “conspiracy theorists” are calling “chemtrails.” When I respond with my direct experiences, what I see and hear above my own head, I’m often told I’m crazy and/or irrational.
They don’t “believe” in chemtrails or geo-engineering. They equate it with saying one has seen Bigfoot. Why? Because science says they do not exist. They are contrails, period, end of story. Stop being irrational!
The reason I, and many of us trying to find out the truth, become so passionate and often excessively agitated when we discuss this topic is because many scientists and loads of average folks blindly following them are asking us to ignore our own sensory data. They want us to turn a blind eye to our own knowing and believe what the scientists and media are telling us, or that science will save us, and that the truth will prevail, that we should all have faith in the scientific method.
Isn’t empirical evidence supposed to mean data gathered by one’s own senses? And yet, unless the Empire is the one dishing out such evidence it’s not really empirical evidence at all, it would seem.
Climate science sounds remarkably like religion, so it should be expected that there are those of us who will continue to address it with a certain fervor.
The Monckton-Molyneux infomercial noted above ends with these prophetic words, further cementing the “us vs them” social programming:
“It’s very difficult to get the truth out. Am I gloomy? No! Because we have the one thing they haven’t got . . .We have the truth and if we have the truth we have everything and they have nothing, and in due course the truth will assert itself as it always does.”
Molyneux replies with enthusiastic vows to do his very best and concludes, . . .to get more of the Lord’s work, visit . . .”
As I attempt to compile information and to uncover, recover, discover my own mind, I’m finding the gaps daunting. I must change the tone and the content of this series of posts on science to reflect my inner reality: I’m on a fool’s journey, alone, with hardly a map.
This makes me certain of only one thing, which I repeat from last post: Science is failing us.
I am alone on this journey, but not without guides. To discern between guides leading astray and those leading toward truth is futile. I will take no one at his word from this point forward. If there is truth to be known, I will find it and I will know it as the newborn knows to inhale and the body knows when to expel his last breathe. There is the mind that knows a thing when it’s told to him—God exists, God does not exist, the scientific method works, the scientific method does not work—this is indoctrination. There’s another ‘mind’ some call it the mind-body, which is a knowing that transcends, a knowing that inhabits the individual and is based in the etheric reasoning of the mind-body. Contrary to the objection any rationally-minded individual has based on that statement, this is not faith, at least not in the way expressed by religion. Might this be what science is hopelessly searching for . . . the God particle? Searching desperately in the material world for an immaterial force, they are, perhaps?
I’m not asking you to follow me, but still I feel compelled to leave a trail of bread crumbs, for you or me, just in case. It’s a sort of mind map of my fool’s journey. I’ve committed that during the next two months I will be in deep study and reflection and my already limited social life will move even further into the background of my existence. Still, I so appreciate any thoughts or comments, breadcrumbs of yours, that might inspire or not, but that I will promise to take in as more food for thought.
My guides will change, sometimes dramatically, and at the moment they include Michael Tsarion. The occult in general will be a primary topic, and how could it not be, now with all the disgusting pedo headlines seizing up our neural networks.
I’ve been a student of the Tarot already for some time, I will deepen into that work and all the so-called ancient mystery school teachings. The origins of science stem from alchemy, they say, so it seems only logical the journey should begin there. I’ve circled around these studies for years, dabbling wherever the truthstream takes me, but I’ve never approached them with intent, with an expectation and an itinerary, yet with the malleability of my nature and as a seasoned traveler.
My foremost commitment—I will take no man at his word and I will follow no gurus be they men of science or faith. I will know it for myself, in my mind-body, or it will not be known to me.
I spent 18 years in formal education, and another 20 as a teacher. How could it be that now, in middle age, I find the knowledge I gained in all that time to be so insignificant in navigating my reality as to be nearly useless.
“In 1997, Teller publicly outlined his proposal to use aircraft to scatter in the stratosphere millions of tons of electrically-conductive metallic materials, ostensibly to reduce global warming.(32)
Shortly after Teller’s presentation, the public began seeing frenetic chemtrailing. In 2000, CBS News admitted that scientists were “looking at drastic solutions for global warming, including manipulating the atmosphere on a massive scale.” CBS confirmed that the plan to load the air with tiny particles would “deflect enough sunlight to trigger global cooling.”(33)
One of my favorite trees, the Sassafras, is flaming red now, one of the few to have changed so brilliantly in this unusually warm and dry fall in East Texas. Between now and winter is the best time to clip the leaves and dig up the tenacious roots so as to indulge in a couple of our ancestors’ favorite libations—root beer and Sassafras tea. Gumbo filé is also made from it, which is an essential ingredient in some Cajun cooking.
Our ancestors adored it, science calls it a carcinogen. At the same time vast groves of it are grown in regions of the globe more easily controlled, in order to mass extract their saffrole to make a version of the popular street drug called ecstasy.
Science is failing us. The case could be made in multiple disciplines, but can be witnessed most dramatically in plant/nutrition science, climate science, and quantum physics. It has become impossible over the last several decades to decipher the spin from the pseudo, the beneficial from the political, the real data and relevant studies from the marketing groups and the string-pullers.
Science has become reliant on disinformation and dogma, and driven almost entirely by warfare, which I’ll be discussing in the next several posts.
Climate engineering, including its many different angles like Stratospheric Aerosols, global dimming, Solar Radiation Management, etc. remains a topic so controversial among scientists even regular folks are starting to not believe their own eyes. They still question whether the expanding contrails above their heads and obvious to millions are even real. Trolls on social media claim ridiculous “scientific facts” that these trails and the chemical clouds and weather manipulation that ensues are totally normal. The scientific “community” is itself in denial, though the military has published multiple reports on these projects and it is discussed openly in think tanks, not to mention by millions on social media around the globe.
Here are some above our property, discussed in previous posts.
Scientific analysis, from those few scientists who are bothering to question beyond the mainstream narrative, is interspersed with language of the alienagenda. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjzkEiO6AAc(recent chemtrails analysis, but who is to know at this point who is really using science!)
We have been trained to believe science and faith are opposites. Yet, the push in modern science is to unify these polarities in a similar way as the alchemists once did.
Jay Dyer deconstructs at length various films, especially sci-fi, including the newly released Dr. Strange, through the lens of the occult and the Ecumenical movement. Like in so many Hollywood films, we witness the marriage of science and spirituality, move effortlessly between these two ‘opposing’ worldviews, with “magic” and “science” having become once again interchangeable. While some may argue this is just fiction, a deeper study of fiction will quickly blur those thin lines. “Unity consciousness” is all-pervasive in some circles, especially among those New Age folks who consider themselves “enlightened” and these popular movements are influenced by the same worldview permeating science.
“Such is the mythology surrounding scientism, and its incorrect narrative of how history has progressed and how the scientific method is the only reliable, all-encompassing Rosetta Stone of gnosis. In reality, the global standardized university system is an epistemic cartel dogmatically committed to enforcing naïve empiricism and reductionist materialism, as well as centuries old, outdated “mass consumption” physics. Granted, not every “scientist” is party to this conspiracy, but without a doubt, no one graduates to international prominence without passing the qualifications of the Royal Society’s Holy Office of scientific inquisition. Nikola Tesla and his classified and confiscated work is a perfect example of this international materialist/monetarist control – but more on that later. . . .Yet so many operate under the assumption that funding and desired results somehow doesn’t determine the results of what studies get funded and are done! This is not to say all studies are funded for a specific purpose, but nowadays, almost everyone is familiar with the practice of certain megacorporations funding studies to achieve profitable results. Notable, famous examples of this include the pharmaceutical and GMO food industries. Failing to recognize this fact is simply not living in the real world, opting instead for the fantasy land of imagined objectivity for one special field, “science,” as if science were magically immune to the rest of human weakness.”
“Almost the entire academic world has, for centuries, been under the delusion that the “scientific method” is the best and only reliable means for arriving at an approximation of the natural world. Religion, speculation, emotions, etc., are all lumped into a similar dustbin, giving us no useful data relevant to science. Science, the argument goes, relies on some amorphous form of “reason” (though none of these pragmatists have any idea what exactly reason itself is), that provides us with calculable, generally mathematical results.”
Lots of science fraud has been uncovered by veteran journalist Jon Rappoport concerning disease. For example: declaring and promoting the existence of various epidemics, when the viruses purportedly causing them are not proven to exist or not proven to cause human illness (Zika, Ebola, SARS, West Nile, Swine Flu, etc.)https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/category/science-fraud/
The “thinking” folk, the so-called rational ones, often try to distance themselves from those of faith. A Facebook friend recently made an astute comment when I wrote of my intention to question science.
“Science is the tool. Scientists are the craftsmen. There is definitely a difference between a carpenter and the hammer he uses to perform his trade. If he builds shoddy structures that collapse with the first moderate breeze, was it the fault of the hammer, or the one wielding it?”
Let’s take the analogy one step further. Considering it’s obvious that fraud and fantasy are embedded in the reality of these scientific craftsmen, how useful can we really consider the tool to be? As the old adage goes, when all you have is a hammer, everything becomes a nail.
I was duped and that’s maddening, not to mention a bit humiliating too.
When I first heard of Globalism I was an avid world traveler fancying I could make it as a travel writer. I remember seeing some anti-globalist picketers in front of a large bank in some major European city and thinking “Wow, these folks are really afraid of McDonalds!”
I was no big fan myself, but didn’t consider any differing perspectives or a bigger picture than “Don’t they realize how much more pleasant it is for us travelers to use ATMs and credit cards all over the world rather than deal with cash or Traveler’s Cheques?
How very naïve I was and what a difference a decade can make. I imagined global government meant a global democracy. Really! What a slap in the face it was to witness the U.S. become far more like the formerly Soviet-bloc countries I’d known.
I remember once on an overnight train ride through a few countries in Eastern Europe I was awoken five times by fierce agents in differing uniforms to “Show your papers!”
It seemed so absurd to me, so pointless and paranoid. Not to mention how very annoying it was to have to perform this ritual throughout my sleepless night.
Then I got repeatedly frisked in my country’s own airports—required to go barefoot on filthy floors and to strip to my tank top in front of hundreds of passengers. I watched as cities transformed for military operations, boiled as I learned about the mass surveillance, screamed when I heard about the force-feeding of GMOs, and just when I thought it couldn’t possibly get any darker, yes quite naive once again, darker indeed it got—it’s called Global Dimming, http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sun/ and it’s part of the on-going global climate manipulation.
The spin agents in the mainstream media want to make it look, at best, like beneficial progress harmless to humanity and, at worst, as if it’s all one giant conspiracy theory invented by inconvenient crazies.
But how can any mind dismiss it all when it just doesn’t add up? When the military says one thing, and the weathermen another, and the public officials, the experts, the alternative media, social media are all aglow with speculation and hype, yet, it’s never on the mainstream news. Surely any rational mind revolts and roars–Something is very wrong indeed!
It requires extensive independent research to unravel. Luckily these days that can be done from the comfort of your bed or kitchen or living room. That may not be the case for much longer.
The mainstream media would have us think normal contrails are crisscrossing the sky at various locations around the entire globe. Greenpeace calls it a conspiracy theory. I actually volunteered for them once upon a time. Arghhh!
So, Greenpeace, we are to think the pilots are simply bored and playing Tic-Tac-Toe up there?
Please folks, I’m begging y’all here. Help us do the research and raise awareness. If we all stop being so naïve and self-focused and do a bit of study on behalf of future generations, we just might be able to take back control of our skies and our lives.
Thanks to the tireless work of so many the initial research can now be as easy as watching some Youtube videos. This is a new series that’s very approachable called In the Garden with Max Bliss.
And a few quotes to inspire your resolve. Thanks for reading y’all, please take action.
“The concept of national sovereignty has been immutable,
indeed a sacred principle of international relations.
It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to
the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation.“ – UN Commission on Global Governance report
“Democracy is not a panacea. It cannot organize everything and
it is unaware of its own limits. These facts must be faced squarely.
Sacrilegious though this may sound, democracy is no longer well
suited for the tasks ahead. The complexity and the technical nature
of many of today’s problems do not always allow elected
representatives to make competent decisions at the right time.”
– Club of Rome,

“Regionalism must precede globalism.
We foresee a seamless system of governance from
local communities, individual states, regional unions
and up through to the United Nations itself.”
– UN Commission on Global Governance
“The goal now is a socialist, redistributionist society,
which is nature’s proper steward and society’s only hope.”
– David Brower,

I wish I could say I was not guilty of it. I watched on two different days last week as a coyote trotted off contentedly first with a duck, then a chicken. The latter time I was outside, with our very large Dane-Mastiff guarding, reading on the deck as the coyote pranced by 200 feet from us, without any chicken ever making a sound to alert our attention.
I did shoot at it, far too late, but I was so slow and stunned I hardly had a chance. I asked on social media whether, had they been faster than me, if they would have choosen to shoot the thieving coyote with their cameras or their guns. Most chose cameras, which demonstrates a double-bind, I believe.
We have lost sight of the predator/prey relationship. In fact, when we look closely into New Age groups and the major push in education currently, the prey has been deluded into believing they can transform the predator into something ‘better’ or “safer” or at least less scary.
The prey goes into school and later even therapy so as to come out better adapted at the game and to his role as prey. The predators understand perfectly this relationship can be best described by the old parable of ‘the frog and the scorpion.’ Since at least Biblical times, it has always been the same game. The predator/prey relationship is easily paralleled to our more civilized equivalent of Master/slave, which can be extended further to our current neo-serf system of Parent/child and State/citizen.
I fancy myself aware, self-reliant, pro-active, resourceful. Yet, in my ‘truth quest,’ which a great many of us have been on for many years now, I’ve demonstrated my talent at pointing fingers, shifting responsibility, projecting, and most grievous and destructive of all, further nurturing an identification complex. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Identification_%28psychology%29
An identification complex is plaguing seemingly all of society right now so I have plenty of company. We are all pointing our fingers at the 1%, or in the case of “truthers” or “conspiracy theorists” the .001%, as the core problem with the world. We criticize from one side of our mouths and go along with the other. We go along in hundreds of different ways every day. We fall for their fashion and entertainment, we sit in their schools and on their boards and in their governments. On the surface there seems to be little other choice. When someone opens their eyes wide enough to see this is the same master/slave relationship indoctrinated and institutionalized at ever level of the system that has existed since the beginning of history, we are then met with the next inconvenient truth: We are only looking at the gameboard, we are not understanding the game.
We the slaves both despise and envy the master, and the master knows this and uses it against us. Obedience is the price and the master sets the terms. Our role is to remain passive and uncomplaining against the unspoken contract. When the noose tightens, some slaves become restless and resentful, while others adapt by learning to breathe more shallowly. Livestock breeders use identical methods. This is how the system perpetuates and exacerbates to such an imbalance that an excess of predators disrupt the natural order until collapse is inevitable.
Of course the game is rigged! And if you had your way, it would be rigged in your favor. Your preference might be: I want it to be fair and safe for everyone, for there to be no predators or prey, nomasters or slaves, and many might support you, to the point they’d be willing to become the predators in order to preserve your collective safe-space.
What we see politically we are also allowing in our personal and professional lives. We feel the boot, there are fewer in denial everyday. We know we are being surveilled and minimized and made obsolete. We know we are victims and we react in one of the many ways they know we will, as prey always will: Fight, Flight, Fawn, or Freeze. If one can find another courageous enough to rebel, he is also lost eventually, because to rebel is to remain still inside the game. They have plenty of room for rebellion, they count on it, they thrive on it.
“I can hire one half of the working class to kill the other half.” Jay Gould
Obedience is the prey’s cost in the master/slave, State/citizen relationship, making the passive society become increasingly easy prey; little more than a flock of smiling depressives. These easiest of prey develop a quintessential need for their one-season world, for un-natural order, until passivity replaces fear and we all become the woman watching the coyote trot by with one of her ducks, too slow and maladapted and untrained to stop him.
When one is lucky enough to find another who has the courage to change the game, or at least give it a go, one has met the Fool soon to replace the Father. The game changes when we ourselves change, it’s an inside-out process, not an outside-in. We choose en masse, to not be prey or predator. We choose to have no rulers. We choose Autonomy, Sovereignty and Self-government.
The ones who understand you must stop the predator or soon all your poultry will perish are the ones rebelling, which the masters then flaunt in front of the more passive prey to get them focused toward each other. The fawns point fingers at the fights, the freezes blame the flights, and around and around we go.
Where will we stop? Does somebody know?
When the most passive meets the predator enface they realize their only hope is one they’ve been trying to avoid all along. Because the most unpleasant truth of the human condition from the mindset of the frog is that not every frog has to become aware of the nature of the scorpion, they just have to become aware faster than the last frog.
