The USA’s Pentagon ranks 19th out of nearly 3,000 networks identified to be engaged in peer to peer child porn sharing, the 2019 reporting:

… this has not only gone unaddressed for a decade but appears  to have exponentially worsened since the story first began to break into the open, the 2010 reporting:

The Pentagon’s Pedophile Problem

“Due to DCIS [Defense Criminal Investigative Service] headquarters’ direction and other DCIS investigative priorities, this investigation is cancelled”

The upshot? After NINE YEARS of inaction, it is LITERALLY taking a proposed act of Congress to attempt shutting the Department of Defense child porn network down:

“The END Network Abuse Act would require the Pentagon to enter into agreements with groups including law enforcement, child protection services, social services, and trauma-informed healthcare providers in order to cut down or halt the spread and impact of these images on DOD networks. The bill would also upgrade the training and technical expertise of the military organizations involved in investigating these types of crimes.

“The National Criminal Justice Training Center, one of the groups that has thrown its weight behind the bill, reported in 2018 that DOD’s network was ranked 19th out of almost 3,000 nationwide networks on the amount of peer-to-peer child pornography sharing”

So, the big question: How is it our “Christian Taliban” are rubbing shoulders with a bunch of little kid f**kers, you know, all of that super Christian culture represented in the USA military forces “Officers Christian Fellowship” and Pentagon prayer groups in an organization that can’t clean this shit up?

Pentagon_Christians - 1

Huh. Maybe there’s something to the adage “Nothing fails like prayer.” Certainly the balls to stand up this seem to be altogether AWOL or the ethics & morality factor at the Pentagon is in a state of DESERTION and praying ‘Oh Jesus, save us’ is not going to cut the evil out.

Then, occurs a thought, the organization the NSA reports to, as well the Pentagon owning the Defense Intelligence Agency, together with any idea the Department of Defense cannot solve this problem with exposure of the criminal element, is patently absurd. Nothing short of complicity at the top could keep the little kid f**k circus in business.

Talk about handing propaganda blessings to Russia, when your own top military institution and its law enforcement branch won’t tackle what appears to be endemic child pornography, what does that say about the aggression behind American ‘exceptionalism’? A case of ‘War with Russia’ to make the criminals at the Pentagon ‘indispensable’ is preferable to accountability? Or, just suppose Bibi’s intelligence people demand false flag encounters initiating a war with Iran? What compromising circumstance might be on the horizon where child porn blackmail presents a wealth of opportunity?

Stargate Project Part Two

“There on the hillside, a great herd of pigs was feeding. And the demonic spirits begged him, send us into the pigs, let us enter them.” -Mark 5:11

The New Testament quote adequately describes the NAZI meme’s escape from Germany via various Western intelligence agencies’ operations rescuing German scientists and intelligence professionals (war criminals) in the aftermath of World War II. The ‘demonization’ of paganism, in popularized rewriting of history of the Reich notwithstanding, this rescue was a ‘Christian’ event, end to end, facilitated by conservative American Christians, exemplified in the CIA’s William ‘Bill’ Donovan & Allen Dulles, when rescuing conservative German Christians; recalling the political plank of the NAZI party emphasized “Positive Christianity.” [1], [2], [3]

It follows, when your intelligence agency had rescued the ‘science’ leading to ballistic missile ‘advances’ for hydrogen bomb delivery in our ‘civilized’ world, it should come as no surprise (at all) to discover ‘medical’ experiments at Dachau had inspired CIA Projects Blue Bird, Artichoke & MK ULTRA, ultimately leading to the career path of today’s torturer-in-chief Gina Haspel. [4]

“Publicly acknowledged programs are considered distinct from unacknowledged programs, with the latter colloquially referred to as “black” programs because their very existence and purpose are classified. Among black programs, further distinction is made for “waived” programs, considered to be so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress. The chairperson, ranking member, and, on occasion, other members and staff of relevant Congressional committees are notified only orally of the existence of these programs” [5]

Going to the ‘cellularizing’ of CIA, and an agency phenomena called ‘eye-wash’ where one part of the agency is deliberately deceived as to the actual activities and accomplishments of another, related sector, assigned to solving identical problems, it is a fair question to wonder which, if any of Stargate Project’s goals had been achieved and reported. It would be quite easy for the agency’s criminal deep cover science programs to evade even minimal reporting by simply putting forward oral reports to committee chairmen concerning a team assigned to ‘benign’ research (layer of cover) while the ‘dirty’ research team is never so much as breached with a pinprick of light. [6]

Beyond the preceding, there is the possibility of ‘offshoring’ projects such as MK ULTRA had been, according to a former CIA official:

“Although misleading (and occasionally perjured) testimony before Congress indicated that the CIA’s ‘brainwashing’ efforts met with little success, striking advances were, in fact, made in this field. As the late CIA veteran Miles Copeland once admitted to a reporter, ‘The congressional subcommittee which went into this sort of thing got only the barest glimpse.’ Clandestine research into thought manipulation has not stopped, despite CIA protestations that it no longer sponsors such studies. 14-year CIA veteran, Victor Marchetti, confirmed in a 1977 interview that the mind control research continues, and that CIA claims to the contrary are a ‘cover story'” [7]

fear is a ‘palpable’ thing

Mind control is as old as civilization’s ability to create a message encapsulating one’s environment; example given is the Catholic church war on paganism via avenue creating a meme of fear where in late stage of stamping out any cultural habit deviating from norms established by ruling elites of the era, it had been held in a decree of Pope Innocent VIII, Malleus Maleficarum:

“…many persons of both sexes, unmindful of their own salvation and straying from the Catholic Faith, have abandoned themselves to devils, incubi and succubi, and by their incantations, spells, conjurations, and other accursed charms and crafts, enormities and horrid offences, have slain infants yet in the mother’s womb, as also the offspring of cattle, have blasted the produce of the earth, the grapes of the vine, the fruits of the trees, nay, men and women, beasts of burthen, herd-beasts, as well as animals of other kinds, vineyards, orchards, meadows, pasture-land, corn, wheat, and all other cereals; these wretches furthermore afflict and torment men and women … with terrible and piteous pains and sore diseases, both internal and external; they hinder men from performing the sexual act and women from conceiving, whence husbands cannot know their wives nor wives receive their husbands; over and above this, they blasphemously renounce that Faith which is theirs by the Sacrament of Baptism, and at the instigation of the Enemy of Mankind they do not shrink from committing and perpetrating the foulest abominations and filthiest excesses to the deadly peril of their own souls, whereby they outrage the Divine Majesty and are a cause of scandal and danger to very many” [8]

With a resurgence of paganism (neo-paganism) and wiccan beliefs systems, there had been conservative, pro-life, pagan/wiccan alliance coalesced in support of Ron Paul’s candidacy for president in 2008 (particularly at myspace prior to that platform’s dismantlement as a viable social media site.) Meanwhile Alex Jones’ ‘infowars’ spreads the Illuminati ritual sacrifice meme, smearing paganism with guilt by association, equating pagan beliefs with Satanism (which is, by definition, a Judeo-Christian religion having nothing to do with Paganism per se.) [9], [10]

What we see Alex Jones doing is little different to the Papal Bull Malleus Maleficarum generating paranoia while creating a deep and abiding horror, except in Jones’ case, planting the seeds of a lynch mob mentality in a major under-educated & alienated subset of the American population. When Jones talks about, and does interviews with, clinically paranoid Christians on “mind control”, what he is also doing (with the better educated) is associating mind control as a metadata subject with the idea this is a topic best fit for the mental froot-loops of society. In other words, the subject of mind control seems to have been the target of a serious disinformation campaign with multiple objectives. Relative to his interview with Fritz Springer (who comes across as a ‘jail house convert’ to Christianity), on Springer’s book ‘Bloodlines of the Illuminati’, it does well to recall an earlier incarnation of a compulsive liar & felon, Karl May, who wrote the fiction capturing the mind of an entire nation, to possibly include Adolf Hitler. [11], [12]

In this regard, it does to have a look at Jones’ relationship to the ‘modern inquisition’ or the organization which brought us MK Ultra:

Jones_Wikispooks - 1

^ Wikispooks illustration [13]

Jones has admitted he comes from a CIA career family. With both parents and his maternal uncle identified as CIA operatives and ‘infowars’ co-founders (‘operative’ can denote ‘asset’ and does not necessarily imply or exclude ‘officer’), taken together with the infowars propaganda (disinformation) profile concerning mind control as informed by Alex Jones, it is a reasonable assertion Jone’s InfoWars program had been assigned information operations intended to imprint any mind control accusations concerning the USA as the fantasy of ‘conspiracy theorists’, a terminology that, in and of itself, had been weaponized by the Central Intelligence Agency. [14], [15]

‘benign’ versus ‘dirty’

The parameters of possibilities available to the CIA (recalling the culturally inculcated Cartesian-Platonic limitations), pursuit of ‘transcendent warfare’ in relation to ‘mind control’ and its’ larger possibilities, should include two tracks, cultural anthropology and laboratory.

the ‘benign’

The 1st or ‘benign’ method would, example given, explore historical methodology such as Buddhism, within it’s mind control (meditation) practices, while searching for method of exploitation. A ripe target (low hanging fruit) would be the increasingly Westernized Buddhist communities, with their attraction of the socially dysfunctional in circumstance providing opportunity to study effects of the breakdown in longtime Buddhist cultural strictures, such as prohibited practices (to novice monks & lay people) like ‘external’ meditation. Practices forbidden in mainstream Thai Theravada sects not so much as being mentioned as interdicted in Western adaptation and studies of the same, recalls an oft repeated warning:

“Carl Jung once warned that Western people who take up Eastern spiritual practices run the danger, first, of doing those practices inauthentically, since they are not beginning with an Eastern psychic structure, and secondly, of using those practices to avoid the real psychological work they, as people with Western psyches, need to do to ever become ready for higher spiritual practice”

Such a social environment, via agency clandestine anthropological fieldwork, should provide both; opportunity to initiate & study an altered Buddhism’s effects on the damaged psyches of Western pathological subjects, and serve as a recruiting ground to experiment with manipulating the human psyche for purposes of developing avenues to transcendent warfare. [16], [17], [18]

What the preceding will NOT accomplish is, overcoming the culturally inculcated Cartesian-Platonic stigma on female intelligence (noting the associated Western path to female emancipation is to become like men), as well, it should be noted the classic far Eastern civilizations, if closer to the shamanic origins from which derives ‘Tao’, exhibit their own forms of chauvinism necessary to prop up the narcissistic male hierarchy underpinning the vertical (‘erect’) social structures in ‘civilization.’

the ‘dirty’

The 2nd, or laboratory method, should immediately recall the NAZI inspired history of the Central Intelligence Agency mind control projects. Where today’s ‘known’ USA ‘interrogation’ methods draw their inspirations from experiments at Dachau, we also should recall who’d been hired by the CIA following WWII:

“His torture rooms had tables with restraints, ovens, and implements for electrocution” & “They would carry by the bodies of tortured people. With the point of a boot, Barbie would turn their heads to look at their faces, and if he saw someone he believed to be a Jew, he would crush it with his heel”

Klaus Barbie’s rescue & employ by the USA records NAZI criminality into the 1980s, inclusive of Barbie becoming a veteran of the CIA’s Latin America ‘dirty wars’ (one may presume inclusive of torture) and arms & narcotics trafficking. [19], [20] (also see footnotes 1, 2 & 4)

In light of the preceding, it becomes clear there is a general timeline continuity, where NAZI veterans of the CIA (a presumption of influence) ties to senior leadership of the agency’s current era, or a case of culturally inculcated inter-generational violence. [21]

In this regard, recalling MK ULTRA family of projects had barely been exposed, not only had been swept under the rug according to well placed CIA informants (Victor Marchetti, Miles Copeland) rather than discontinued per the agency’s official line (see footnote 7), it could be a reasonable supposition extreme torture involving hypnosis, memory erasure, sexual abuse & torture of children, and more, had and does go on, in ‘off-shored’ & ‘out-sourced’ laboratories. Had there been, and is there presently, such a thing in the stable of subservient (to CIA) intelligence agencies of the several allied Latin American nations? Colombia and its’ tenure under Uribe should be a candidate worthy of investigation. Also noteworthy is the Australian psychiatric hospital ‘experimenting’ with LSD that birthed the Anne Byrne cult, with its sex abuse and torture focus, sharing a common timeline with MK ULTRA LSD based ‘research’ (torture) in the psychiatric department at McGill University at Montreal, Canada. It is at footnotes 22 & 23 we can conclude part two of three parts:

“most of the researchers and doctors involved in Project MK ULTRA … were not informed of the project or of the fact that the funds for their research originated from the spy agency. In order to conceal the source of money, the CIA created research foundations, such as the Human Ecology Fund, to act as fronts for funnelling MK ULTRA research funds. The CIA then worked through such organizations to target researchers with projects that were of interest to them in developing techniques of interrogation or human behaviour control” [22], [23]

How interesting the Byrne cult, on top of employing doctors of psychiatry from a professional institution, not only used LSD laced torture technique coupled to sexual abuse of children, but also embraced Nazi eugenics.

Within this necrotic history, it is certainly plausible modern lab advances have been employed to study disassociated states in relation to the paranormal possibilities of Stargate Project.

A former Sergeant of Operations and Intelligence for Special Forces, Ronald Thomas West is a retired investigator (living in exile) whose work focus had been anti-corruption. Ronald is published in International Law as a layman (The Mueller-Wilson Report, co-authored with Dr Mark D Cole) and has been adjunct professor of American Constitutional Law at Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany (for English credit, summer semester 2008.) Ronald’s formal educational background (no degree) is social psychology. His therapeutic device is satire.

The question lurking behind this satire is; if Wikileaks is in a position to crush ‘the Russians did it’ DNC bs, why haven’t they? Because Assange is more important than pulling the rug out from the morons in DC using the patent ‘hack’ bullshit to jack geopolitical rivalry and tensions with Russia, incredibly, dangerously high? Craig Murray needs to come clean –

Craig Murray
(& result of the moron-o-meter exam)

I’d perused the Wikispooks biography page on Craig Murray [1] and noticed a few things. Craig Murray insists he has lived…

“as a dissident where I have devoted my life to exposing, and trying to counter, the evil of the neo-conservative policy pursued by our political class at the behest of the corporations who fund them. I have suffered a huge loss in money, status and most of the other normal aspirations. But what I have gained is invaluable. I have respect and love, while Blair and Straw will forever be despised”

Well, Craig, as much as I despise the neoliberals Blair and Straw and their neoliberal policies, you certainly don’t have my respect and love. Notice the first symptom of a personality flaw: the cultural imperative where drive to wealth and status is a “normal aspiration.” I very much doubt Murray has preserved his original working class dialect for everyday use. In Britain, the first words out of one’s mouth typically identifies a person’s class affiliation.

Handicapped by upper class aspirations = minus one point.

Doesn’t know the difference between a neoconservative & a neoliberal = minus one point.

“Following publication of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s Report on the CIA’s Use of Torture in December 2014, Craig Murray said “Can I just say how pleasant it is to be vindicated ten years after being sacked by Jack Straw for opposing the torture and extraordinary rendition programme – which Blair and Straw claimed I was inventing.” In an audio interview on 12 December 2014, Craig Murray recounted his experience to Scottish journalist and broadcaster Derek Bateman examining the legacy of Labour in a week when revelations about state-sanctioned torture by the CIA under Bush/Cheney further threaten the reputation of the Blair government” -Wikispooks

…Murray’s ‘pleased to be vindicated’ based on a calculated whitewash report where CIA complicity in a far wider legacy of kidnapping to torture had been glossed over is hardly the stuff of playing hardball against the team of criminals. Murray should have done the math; 119 prisoners (the report’s numbers) renditioned to black sites versus eleven thousand identified renditions plane flights just doesn’t add up [2]

Sucked up an establishment produced, deliberate whitewash of CIA renditions = minus one point.

Murray believes in virgin birth, the tooth fairy and the patent nonsense World Trade Center Building 7 died of fright on 9/11, no matter thousands of professionals with understanding of steel & concrete structures conclude there was at least one, indisputable, professionally engineered building demolition at WTC on 9/11 [3]

“Craig Murray announced in 2010 that he would summarily remove any comments about 9/11 from his website, stating his own position that “I do not believe that the US government, or any of its agencies, were responsible for 9/11. It would just need too many people to be involved. Someone would have objected”” -Wikispooks

Cowardly aversion to ‘conspiracy theorist’ label = minus one point.

Murray is a professionally trained diplomat but not a spook. This is clear on more than one point (see a second point in his Wikileaks interactions) and this one goes to Murray’s rank fail on how spy agencies propagandize their own people with false intelligence reports when backstopping lies via a technique called “eyewash” [4], [5]

“Craig Murray has publicly supported the Al Jazeera documentary, “Lockerbie: What Really Happened?” which concluded that the Lockerbie bombing was ordered by Iran and carried out by the PFLP-GC, with help from Hezbollah, and if Libya had a role, it was secondary. Murray blogged that “The information on Lockerbie published in today’s Daily Mail from an Iranian defector, matches precisely what I was shown in a secret intelligence report in the FCO just around the time of the first Iraq war. It was decided that this would be kept under wraps because the West needed Iran and Syria’s quiescence in the attack on Iraq”” -Wikispooks

Yo, Craig, wake-up call, your Iranian defector likely took MI6 script matching your own case of eyewash (backstopped the lie you’d been fed), the Pan Am 103 bombing easily should be a reprise of the murder of Dag Hammarskjold, only in this case was Britain and South Africa’s intelligence services execution of Bernt Carlsson who’d been preparing prosecution of Her Majesty’s government yellow cake trafficking [6], [7]

Does Her Majesty a favor with an eyewash blind spot = minus one point

And finally we have Stickyleaks…

“I took half an hour out yesterday from building the Doune the Rabbit Hole site to take part in a worldwide broadcast in support of Julian Assange. You can see me here on YouTube from 3 hours and 43 minutes in, though you may prefer to watch Slavoj Zizek who is on just before me ❤️❤️❤️

“The fact that I could broadcast video to people all over the world from a beautiful but remote field in the shadow of the Trossachs, via a mobile phone connection, is an example of just why the state and corporate media can no longer dominate the narrative with their propaganda. That is the main subject of my brief talk” craigmurray.org.uk July 2018 [8]

Ok, so Craig Murray, who has all but admitted he met with Seth Rich in the DNC leaks case (probably to verify the authenticity of the mails prior to Wikileaks paying cash to Rich, not to be the conduit) and possibly (very likely) as a surveilled  high profile associate of Wikileaks got Rich identified as the DNC source, causing Rich to be assassinated (a trained spook uses a cut out to prevent just this sort of scenario)…

murray_wikileaks-1

“I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things” -Craig Murray

…somehow doesn’t understand (cannot connect the dots) the fact Julian Assange was a critical gear in the intelligence agency (primarily CIA & MOSSAD) information operations responsible for the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ … leading to not only revolution and counter-revolution in Egypt but also the overthrow of Gaddafi and the Syrian ‘civil war.’ How does Craig Murray, when evangelizing with his perception of Assange as a hero, drive that square peg into the round hole of Wikileaks supported the intelligence agency geopolitical engineering called the Arab Spring? [9], [10], [11]

Failed basic espionage 101 by meeting directly with a Wikileaks source = minus one point

Doesn’t understand how organizations like Wikileaks serve intelligence agencies’ interests as in the case of the Arab Spring = minus one point

Narcissistic infatuation with Assange sans perspective, together with not interfered with in his electronic communications by intelligence agencies (allowed at youtube) because he’s actually not a threat as much as a manipulated stooge resulting in a limited hangout = minus one point:

Bank of America - 1

This essay is perhaps best introduced as describing where you WILL NOT find leadership and why. It is in an American historical context with superimposed Native American derived story-telling format; where interrelated metadata is strung together in such a way as to challenge the American expression of the Western cultural assumptions. It will be best understood by (and deliberately presents a challenge to) those fairly competent in the American historical & social context. However this essay might also be of interest to those international readers wishing to explore any of several aspects of the American character development, especially in regards to blind spots and related denial.

On the politics of ‘hope’

“Hope springs eternal” is a cynicism in folk proverb form. Interestingly, in this reporter’s experience, the cynicism has been employed by persons ‘working fingers to the bone’ to right the USA ship of state against very long odds. In such regard, the expression can be seen as a self-lampoon, based on principled action; where one’s devotion to pursue what is correct and honorable for the fact of any and all refusal to compromise ethics is at the core structure of one’s personal state. This person, although certainly not alone in such principled endeavor, is the exception, not the rule.

Insofar as another personality type, one that cynically exploits the ‘hope’ of simple, common people, that is the sociopath in what amounts to an intra-social predator-prey relationship, it is the ‘prey’ most needs examining where ‘leadership’ intersects in relation to “Hope.” This thought is predicated on the fact we have arrived at a place of mass manipulation of humanity on a never before seen scale of propaganda, where leaders are manufactured, whether for selling ‘hope’ or for purpose of color revolution (exploiting hope) inter alia.

“The tremendous expansion of communications in the United States has given this Nation the world’s most penetrating and effective apparatus for the transmission of ideas. Every resident is constantly exposed to the impact of our vast network of communications which reach every corner of the country, no matter how remote or isolated. Words hammer continually at the eyes and ears of America. The United States has become a small room in which a single whisper is magnified thousands of times” -Edward Bernays, ‘The Engineering of Consent’

From Johannes Guttenberg to Marconi to Microsoft Explorer, in just under 600 years, referencing ability to manipulate via a human trait the atheist Richard Dawkins has attempted to explain away as ‘memes’ (a phenomenal order of information sharing that cannot be separated from spirit), the sociopaths’ tools to manipulate have increased in power exponentially.

The most common ‘hope’ (of common people) is a misnomer; it should be better expressed as ‘desire’ that is neither particularly pecuniary nor malignant. It is the desire to have a simple, uncomplicated and meaningful life where one works and is rewarded with a sense of security, within which there should be many small satisfactions that is antithesis of personal empire or the many complications that come with reaching beyond the walls of one’s home and borders of one’s community. This hypothetical person had been (in the modern mythology) described as the ‘salt of the earth’ or it could be said the farmer, the miller, the baker… all respected in small neighborhood with few to none aspiring to affairs of state or sitting in any senate.

Then, the ‘dark side’ of literacy manifest; like a cosmic vomit of goo … ‘freedom’ insists a libertine (not libertarian) corporate neo-feudalism push the little peoples’ face into consumerism until spirit suffocates and all that is sensible seems beyond reach.

It begins with allure and infatuation; the idea “progress” is the inevitable state of humanity, and thus common people are sucked into the machine of mass media where they become consequent debt slaves in actuality, having taken the bait of self-improvement to one’s lot. Perhaps the most cynical example in history of the USA is Blacks persuaded to give up 40 acres and a mule to migrate North and work in a factory where, in a short, subsequent generation or two, capital abandoned those very factories and left these people high and dry, with no marketable skill, and self-sufficiency (personal sovereignty) a mere memory. It was only a short time preceding this event the market crash of 1857 had upended the lives of countless Whites who’d bought ‘the dream’ and their ‘hope’ seen reduced to a ‘great awakening’ that failed (other than to accelerate the economically displaced into involuntary props of “Manifest Destiny”) where a great meme or ‘hope’ inspired of despair was last seen in the Christian ‘revivals’ sweeping the Confederate armies.

Averaging something like seventy and some years, from the American Revolutionary War, to crash and the American Civil War, to crash and World War Two (American history cannot ‘own’ WWI), to impending crash and pending war to save empire, there is yet to be seen a true generation of ‘little people’ allowed fulfillment of any promise surrounding a ‘pursuit of happiness.’ In the end, everything is conscripted, repeatedly.

The opportunities for poisoning the populace via inventions of Guttenberg, Marconi and Microsoft cannot be counted but they can be quantified in a sense of social; simple people desiring only honest opportunity at uncomplicated pursuit of happiness are morphed, via imposed artificial expectations that are in turn exploited for fact of inevitable false result (predicated upon lies), and all of the associated implications, in circumstance where simple, gullible citizens become instinctively fearful for their future and many of these become numb or worse: the violently angry cynic. Behold the Tea Party and whatever will become of the liberal progressive movement repeatedly poisoned by the likes of Barack Obama’s ‘hope’, ‘the burn’ of Sanders and coming politically correct demands (deceits) of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The ‘discovery’ of Dawkins’ (memes) had long been known already in human observation; and shortly (repeatedly) poisoned by Guttenberg’s invention, example given, Generals Lee & Jackson cynical manipulation of the religious tract for morale purpose (spurring on a false spirit or ‘great awakening’) in doomed armies that served little more than to ‘convert’ the Southern soldiers of the USA into a ‘Bible believing’ embittered and bigoted postbellum social atmosphere that became the ‘Jim Crow’ South.

If religion has been historically used to manipulate, there is small contrast when ‘The Enlightenment’ had served little more than to ensnare the common man in a self-deluded trap of personal freedom underwritten by fraud from its’ inception; no different to the farmer cannot be freed from rain, the miller cannot free himself from the farmer, the baker cannot be freed from the miller nor can the cottage industry be freed from the baker. Every living person in the Western culture imagining oneself independent (having failed consideration of these preceding) is exercising nothing more than what had been described in a 2,500 years past observation:

“Their judgment was based more upon blind wishing than upon any sound pre-vision; for it is a habit of mankind to entrust to careless hope what they long for, and to use sovereign reason to thrust aside what they do not fancy” -Thucydides

Leadership in time of crisis should not underestimate the evil humanity has subjected itself to. To be ‘disillusioned’ should be synonymous to disabused of false notions of ‘hope’ when looking forward to what is possible. The structure humankind has erected, particularly those adopting the Western model, is far removed from realistic understanding of what it means to depend on the rain. When the burden of this structure has reached point of crushing the shopkeeper, and one looks only to discover the shopkeepers support structure is gone missing, in circumstance where the community farmer, the miller and the baker are fast becoming relics of memory, intelligent dismantlement should be a radical focus (prior to collapse.) Without the spine of the community kept intact, and one cannot count on Syngenta & Monsanto to safeguard any one community’s economic sovereignty, let alone any nation’s national security, there is no spine because multinational corporations are not a backbone, rather these resemble an exoskeleton.

Leaders cannot be liars, they do not manipulate the common citizenry away from a healthy community interest and they do not conceal the reality. Religion does these things, whether the religions of science and the Enlightenment or, the Emperor of Rome’s religion of politics shaping Christianity into an instrument of state where the wisdom of the Christian culture’s historical Jesus is buried by the inventions of Paul, drawn from Greek paganism, or more properly, the blood sacrifice ‘mystery religions’ of that era. Jesus cannot save you but given attention, his authentic teachings (e.g. The Sermon on the Mount) can help people to save themselves.

Lastly, leadership in time of crisis is not to be drawn from the model that produced the crisis, that is a model of corporate sociopathy. If there is a true spirit will manifest in the so-called ‘age of liberty’ that had become the sociopaths’ media playground, it must be organic spirit fostering organic intelligence along the lines of a Native American proverb:

“Spirit puts it into the mind of a man, to know what to do”

Disabusing the people of ‘hope’, real leadership will send Guttenberg to hell when pointing community to intelligent dismantlement of existing structures in process of return to self-sufficiency; where endeavors beyond a backbone of rain-farmer-miller-baker-shopkeeper are ultimately unsustainable, particularly those foolhardy ‘pie-in-the-sky’ endeavors that dismantle the spine of a community.

In our rapidly disintegrating world, it seems apropos to touch on the work of theoretical physicist David Bohm and the implications of a gross misapprehension of reality pointed to apocalyptic collapse (or worse.) If Bohm is correct in his ‘implicate order’ of things, we don’t have long to reverse and straighten out the damage of Cartesian-Platonic philosophy underwriting modern science and our social paradigm. The revised-expanded essay “Reality Check” (with references)

Apocalyptic essay on cross-cultural observations

I know most of my readers are into the ‘intelligence’ stuff, nonetheless I lose some readers and gain others depending on the political moment. When the sublime criminal Obama left office and I turned my guns on the morons surrounding Trump, there was (to some extent) a change in my audience’s political demographic. My satire has no doubt also ‘expelled’ certain people who otherwise might have continued reading at this site. None of the preceding has ever effected the material I produce, I call things as I see it in the geopolitical moment and poke at our would be ‘leaders’ with a sharp stick of ridicule if only because the court jester tradition is in danger of dying in the era of political correctness. My native sense of responsibility rebels at the thought.

For those who had been unaware of a certain biographical fact in this reporter’s shaping and evolution, it just so happens my mentality’s most stringent beliefs are derived from many years immersion in a pocket or remnant of Native American language community where pre-Columbian thought was still within reach. These ideas are as different to Western thought as the Earth is to Mars. More importantly is, when fluency in this sort of thinking is attained, one is never tempted to return to Western.

It’s not easy to translate this sort of thinking to Western language, in fact outside of one Native teacher (of mine, personal ), [1] I grade most (nearly all) attempts I have seen to translate high concept a rank fail. Maybe I will fail too, but here goes with trying to bring a greater perception across.

“Hopi and other Native Brothers [nations] were warned no man should bring anything down to Earth from the moon. It would imbalance natural and universal laws and create more severe earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, hail storms, season changes and famines. This is now happening. Most men have strayed from their life plan shown to them by Massau’u [a native concept of messiah, different to Western.] These signs tell us we are nearing the end of our life patterns. We are coming to the time of the Purifiers, the high kachinas commissioned by the Great Spirit to stop man’s destruction of self and nature” -Thomas Banyaca [2]

First, these sort of ideas don’t literally translate if one considers in Native American language generally, and Blackfoot language more specifically (example given), mostly it is the verbs carry the important information (do the heavy lifting), whereas nouns are few(er) and less important, in circumstance of perception which is largely based on, and conversation reflects, process. As example, with the process of heat, the important information is the degree of intensity, or one could say the state of its activity across a spectrum, while the vessels containing it, for instance the nouns kettle or stove, would be a detail and in most instance altogether unnecessary to the sentence structure (a case of the obvious.)

Interestingly, these languages (as opposed to Western) do not appear to struggle much with some of the more paradoxical questions raised by quantum mechanics, particularly noting the work of theoretical physicist David Bohm attempting to replicate a language of process based on his awareness of the Hopi (and other languages.)

“We’re not used to thinking about process. We communicate with an object-based language. David [Bohm] invented a thing called “rheomode“–language in which we speak to each other in a flowing mode. There are some ancient languages which do this–Hopi Indian and some others. In his book Wholeness and the Implicate Order, you’ll find a chapter on language, in which he discusses this rheomode. It didn’t work, because we were still thinking of objects” -theoretical physicist Basil Hiley [3]

From the Native side, it was an action anthropologist, Dr Karl Schlesier, in his ‘The Wolves of Heaven’ based on many years fieldwork, drew the conclusion Cheyenne Shamanism not only confirmed Bohm’s theory, but surpassed his elementary understanding of the implicate order. [4] [5]

Despite that relatively few grasp this, there must be a reason behind the convergence, it can’t just be some freak occurrence. With the preceding in mind, I’ll attempt to expand on the Hopi Thomas Banyaca’s words.

What the ancients (as proposed by Banyaca) were referring to is very likely string theory [6], a concept in its’ infancy in the Western understanding. The indigenous understanding is everything is interconnected by a vibrational web with phenomenal properties that can be established via a careful, focused, long-time intensive training in observation.

In this view, when you bring a moon rock back to earth, it recalls not an isolated history of the Moon created by an early, large asteroid impact with Earth (Western science view) but awakens (shakes awake or invigorates a previously sleeping or dormant, not dead) PROCESS. In short, this act is like sending a message inviting a large asteroid impact (or similar effect) because all is inter-connected process without static element but multiple living elements (cells) of a greater organism (cosmos) in various states of activity (process), whether asleep, awake or somewhere between (‘between’ misconstrued as the many ‘gender’ of the native languages as interpreted by Westerners.)

The ‘earth shaking’ is the web awakening awareness (not merely ‘memory’ which is but one element) of a time of great flux and it is that consciousness-awareness is in state of re-initiating process. What had been a long time calmed down or still ‘string’ has been ‘vibrated’ into action similar to web delivering information alerting or awakening a spider but this is alert of waking process coordinated in multiple phenomena.

These interconnected process(es) can be interpreted as varying states of graduating androgyny, over a spectrum of acceleration-de-acceleration in relation to time, with male representing acceleration and female de-acceleration (of time.) The male principle (common sense-action) when over-emphasized (or separated, cold rational) becomes destructive, whereas the female principle (serene-determined) over-emphasized (or separated) will morph into chaos. Either and/or both in extreme state of agitation point to process that will ultimately result in decay. This violence leading to decay will not only reflect in a form of A to B sequence but also can be observed as simultaneous phenomena even while observable in linear form where male initiation works out as destruction = chaos = decay, and female initiation reflects as chaos = destruction = decay, with either followed by birth that is not necessarily ‘rebirth.’

Whenever one manifests in exaggerated form, awakened process will seek correction as a matter of immutable law, whether expressed on the small or grand scale of events. In the case of a grand scale destruction-chaos event, what follows decay will be a new expression, or a birth which is not a rebirth, but imperatively a new birth (new form.)

That said, an extraordinary case of acceleration-de-acceleration pulling in opposite direction risks tearing the fabric of time (ripping apart the web.)

The parallel universe(s) ‘inferred’ by quantum mechanics (Western science almost certainly won’t survive to understand due to causing implosion) could be seen in the light of the preceding with the following metaphor:

Presume for just a moment our brains (we each have a pair) are self-expressed models of parallel universe in mirror image (facing each other.) Each of these universe has a character, principle and laws expressed as female and male, respectively. To sustain in orderly fashion there must be kept a close balance, and so we must keep a center of consciousness (self-aware state of equilibrium) to accomplish this, and further, suppose we are ‘the gods’ (per Jesus ‘don’t you know you are gods’) charged with keeping the balance in good order. As ‘custodians’ of our small cosmos (Earth), whether in the individual, the community, the nation or our collective cosmos (because we are possessed of creative consciousness that can and does initiate process via ‘the web’), it is critically imperative to locate aware-action in, and restrict these actions to, a space where balance is maintained and that requires a rigorous self-discipline and self-restraint where disturbance is kept in a minimal state.

Destruction and renewal are easily consequence of disturbance of ‘the web’ that were unnecessary, and a fact brought on by simply not paying attention can initiate these things, on the small or grand scale. The metaphor of the “Purifiers“ or “high kachinas” speaks to the grand scale.

This goes to the crux of theoretical physicist d’Espagnat’s observation concerning consciousness and the fact human awareness cannot be ‘disconnected’ from the awareness of ‘objects’, despite this ‘disconnect’ has become the innate cultural belief of Platonic thinking (modern psychology.)

Here we arrive at:

A: “The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato” -Alfred North Whitehead [7]

+

B: ”The [Plato’s] doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment” 
 -Bernard d’Espagnat [8]

=

C: nouns or millennia destructive process ‘objectifying’ language, projecting individual identity onto pieces of one’s surroundings, or dis-integrating environment; a result of the isolated projection of self or (ego) individuation by Western humanity exclusive of integration to a sentient, aware surrounding, where all environment had been/should be, social. [RTW]

The result of this ‘separation’ (delusion of independence) is, Western science blind to the obvious staring them in the face. In the absence of experiencing clear observations, they are constrained to ‘inferring’ aspects (what they cannot see) concerning the nature of reality, piecemeal, as opposed to integrated, native view. Because they are nevertheless part and parcel of what they must sense but cannot see, understand or experience holistically, the Western mentality is condemned to ‘experiment’ in a state of thirst ‘to know’ that can never be quenched. This is a radical state of disturbance (blowing things up, smashing things apart) with consequence that cannot be shunted aside but must be accommodated, even to collapse and perhaps humanity gone out of existence. Some (ancients in the native traditions) say ‘there are always a few’ (survive), others (ancients in the native traditions) say ‘there is no promise’ (of survival.)

As a matter of fact, we have been here before. The oral histories point to a range of events that should be consistent with man abusing his powers in the past. The Hopi record multiple ‘renewal’ events, the Navajo have their stories and others, inclusive of the Plains Ojibwa & Blackfeet (my primary understanding.) These stories should be consistent with certain evidence ‘high’ civilization had been erased or otherwise brought up short and curtailed in their behaviors in other areas of the world, for instance records laid down in Hindu civilization:

“Vishnu incarnated as the Brahman Parashurama in this era because there were too many warlike Kshatriyas plaguing the Earth, and he therefore had to wipe out most of the world’s warriors. However, some of the Kshatriyas survived or more were created, and their population grew again” [9]

Finally, whether you believe Man went to the Moon, or when he will arrive, is unimportant; the Hopi warning is relevant in other (and many) respects.

As I write this, an American space vehicle is orbiting an asteroid to study & determine whether (and if so, when) that particularly large space rock will collide with our planet. There is integrated to this ‘mission’ the intent to return a sample of that very asteroid to Earth, which in native view would be like giving that particular space body a scent to follow with purpose.

Relevant to this, the dinosaur extinction impact site, or Chicxulub crater, has been drilled several times over these past decades, most recently in 2016. [10] As well, archaeology is recalling (literally) past civilizational collapse inclusive of epidemics & the attending violence or social upheaval.

In the current era, the mind as shaped by Plato fences out self-sight, sense of place and understanding of the cosmos. What the Native side has failed to understand is, the modern mentality (taken collectively) is actually incapable of possessing the psychological tools necessary to grasp reality and the implications of the things they do. What the Native side DOES understand is, this erasure could be big, very big, along the lines of the dinosaurs erasure occurring 66 million years ago:

dumb_result - 1

If this seems far-fetched, consider Western science is derived from a culture where two billion+ people ostensibly believe in “Virgin Birth.” In the case of Western ‘scientific atheism’, it is as simple as a matter of a delusional culture’s mentality swapping one misapprehension for another.

For my eyes have see the gory
Of the coming of the horde,
It is trampling out in scrimmage
Where a wealth of crass are whored,
It hath loosed the f’d up frightening
Of a republic’s faithlessness reward,
Goose-steps keep keeping on…

Gory, gory hallelujah! Boo-wa-ha-ha!

Ok, so this one could have as easily been titled ‘stupidity hymn of the republic’ because the facts are, where the USA has devolved to is at least as stupid as it is obscene. As an American patriot in principle, that is one faithful to the constitutional rights, principles and ideals we should have strengthened rather than allow to be discarded by the Trumanite network (created by the National Security Act of 1947), I see it as our duty to call a spade a spade in the tradition of Thomas Paine, a man who did not mince his words:

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime”

I have not (yet) come across a better quote to describe what is known as the ‘political correctness’ underlying the American body politic, where one must conceal the reality; for instance a closet homosexual, Senator Lindsey Graham, whose Evangelical base condemns homosexuality per se. This is a case of interest in light of a simple question: What is the greater abomination, Senator Graham’s sexual orientation in the eyes of his hard right constituency, or his record of murderous votes bought in support of an empire, amounting to payola by corporate multinationals? Or is the greater abomination Senator Graham’s concealment of his sexual orientation, going to the point of the Thomas Paine quote and Graham’s representing a base that condemns what he actually is, in his personal life, Jesus stating “You hypocrite!” notwithstanding. I can’t think of a better sobriquet for Lindsey Graham than “political fag” or “male prostitute” but today’s demand for ‘political correctness’ will have none of it. You have to be willing to lie, from the get go, to play ‘up’ in the American game. That Senator Graham’s orientation, and concealment, resembles the two-faced life of, example given, J. Edgar Hoover, any intelligent body politic should have a problem with NOT calling it out. That we don’t should point to what actually is frightening, the fact modern Americans match up rather well with what Thomas Paine had condemned; ‘the moral mischief of mental lying in society.’

If we define a generation as “all of the people born and living at about the same time, regarded collectively”, it wasn’t even a generation ago American conservatives were not the pervasive bigots we see today. They were largely both; honest and polite, wherein conversation gays were euphemistically ‘greek’ (without animosity) and lesbians described as ‘never married.’ In pre-Tea Party libertarian Montana, gay and lesbian folk were tolerated across the wide swath of Montana’s conservative community, with little overt hostility. It is worth noting in this pre-bigot (pre-Tea Party) life, libertarianism had been one of a very indigenous self-restraint, where seldom people pushed an agenda in the other’s face.

Jack Kerouac, Alan Ginsberg and William Burroughs are responsible for changing all of that, when what amounts to ‘gay evangelism’ or ‘in your face’ libertine lifestyle pushed the conservatives to an extreme, intolerant right position and the left had become infected with a ‘value’ of ‘tolerance’ where everyone, conservatives included, are expected to ‘tolerate’ what amount to dissolute behaviors in a more traditional lifestyle. This split saw immense amounts of money, one could say obscene amounts of money, pumped into either side of the divide, widening the split and hardening the opposing positions. ‘Liberty’ were never so abused before ‘social issues’ became the political prostitutes’ preferred agenda; where now the epithets of choice in the common parlance are faggot and bigot respectively. These terms are no longer constrained to application towards the truly deserving, and the real tolerance allowing for a discreet lifestyle of choice is a thing of the past.

In fact, if the American republic had gone on to secure its intended secular nature, there would only be civil unions (contract law) and ‘marriage’ would be the sole purview of the concerned individuals in relation to religious institutions entirely fenced out of matters of state, no matter were one straight or the alphabet of LBGTQ (RS_UVWXYZ.)

As this cultural war is exploited by the USA’s military-industrial complex, while American empire had expanded and is pointed to collapse like a 33-1/3 LP recording of Rome played at the speed of 78 RPM (millennials might have to research that metaphor), it’s small wonder the nation itself is become the junkie represented in Burroughs (the opioid epidemic), a collective perversion of American genius, where everyone is either a faggot or bigot, merely depending on which side of the divide the voices are funded from. Meanwhile, there is no peace and there is no actual ‘tolerance’, everyone is caught in a war zone, either the cultural war at home or the battlefields of empire abroad.

Considering this circumstance of ‘liberty run amok’ is not likely to resolve amicably, it is interesting to this author, when observing perfectly intelligent people (one should presume), these people seem either incapable or unwilling to examine the very nature of the reality underpinning their experience. For 2,500 years Plato has defined what we have come to perceive; but in the end ‘objectivity’ has produced no ‘objective’ ability to solve our problems, in fact the 21st century has only seen these problems compounded. Something is seriously wrong. And something is seriously wrong with the fact my own analysis drawing back the curtain, when exposing criminal talent, can be widely read (by this modest blog’s standards) and even admired, but this simple, damning equation cannot seem to get traction:

This likely had been going on for a very long time prior to Plato who merely organized what amounts to a (mistaken) idea and managed it into imperative. Subsequently adopted by Europe as its cultural driver, finally we arrive at what appears to be the end of Europe’s existence, about the time (now) Quantum Mechanics says this is all wrong.

Watching Nassim Taleb and Daniel Kahneman at…

…my impression is Taleb (whether he realizes it or not) is, in a nice way, saying (Western) language lies about the nature of reality, he gets that much right, and I see Kahneman in some sense struggling with the idea (I sense he is disturbed at the thought) people actually prefer it that way and they do, because it is comfortable. But, one could also observe hypothermia is comfortable, in late stage or final approach to a permanent state of sleep (that would be death.)

What I do not see (in the video or Western culture per se) is holistic approach to interpretation of reality in and of itself. Rather my impression is (Western) language, in its disintegrated state of nouns, is become the trap curtailing possibilities and Taleb simply provides sense of intelligent management within a spectrum of what amounts to cultural self-deceit, creating a sort of proposed ‘armored hernia’ in the failing Western structure one can retreat to; a retreat which must ultimately discover its’ own (the hernia’s) limitations. This is because chaos is part and parcel of the Western (Plato’s) construct. When rationality becomes extreme, this inflates chaos as result; both are result of segregation of the self from peer relationship to environment or the product of ego-individuation (Western or Indo-European perception of reality, i.e. Plato’s objectivity.)

When rationality, and resultant chaos, must symbiotically generate tension to point of cultural and consequent civilizational implosion, there should be nothing left in any case, and, ‘skin in the game’ notwithstanding, Taleb’s proposed management will simply be footnote to outcome of destruction. Severed from the gone-out-of-existence body (Western civilization), there is no ‘afterlife’ for what Taleb proposes. Accordingly, I would propose his solving this problem:

In any democracy, ethics, self restraint, tolerance and honesty will always take a second seat to narcissism, avarice, bigotry & persecution, if only because people who play by the rules in any democracy are at a disadvantage to those who easily subvert the rules to their own advantage (Ronald’s Maxim)

The alternatives? Judges? That didn’t work out for the Judaic tribes, top-down hierarchy was too attractive. Wise kings? For every wise king, there seems to have been two corrupt ones or arguably worse, greater numbers of incompetent kings as opposed to good ones, and is likely why that system didn’t sustain. Autocrats along the lines of the several caesars who replaced the Roman republic? That didn’t work out because personal (individual) ambition cannot know innate sense of restraint:

“The extension of the empire has meant the growth of private fortunes. This is nothing new, indeed it is in keeping with the most ancient history” -Gaius Asinius Gallus (from Tacitus, The Annals of Imperial Rome)

The problem here is, anyone aspiring to rule a hierarchy that is vertical is limited to role of predator in the food chain and that only works in a healthy state of nature where the predator is subject to immutable law keeping its own species in check; where wealth is measured in the health of one’s surroundings, more so than personal possession and accumulation of wealth or sustenance which must be recognized as transitory (day to day) and limited or the prey species vanish and the predator with it. Talib seems to sense fragmentary echo of this in his astute demand for decentralization but he has not solved the problem. A factually ‘healthy’ understanding likely had been last seen, in what has become today’s Western world, in ‘Old Europe’ or pre-Indo-European neolithic (Danubian) culture, ending perhaps 4,000 years ago, abruptly halted by Indo-European thought and associated individuated ego or drive to personal empire. Talib perseveres in this Indo-European trap.

The missing piece of the modern equation? Our experience is (or should be) part and parcel of a greater phenomenon than ego-individuation of humanity, where a process (ego-sustenance) blocks sight of one’s larger surroundings as sentient, aware, self-balancing and possessing a power of volition that could easily see us erased.
