Is it a case of I don’t understand Russian propaganda or is it Russian propagandists don’t fully understand the Western mentality or is it a case of the Russians are handling the madmen of NATO with ‘kid gloves’ ?

…now we dig into the enigma of Russian propaganda in relation to Wikileaks and exactly ‘W.T.F.‘ is going on?

kim_dotcom - 1

Ignoring Kim Dotcom’s assigning of responsibility to Hillary Clinton (a deep state muppet whose singular intelligence is best represented in her giant ass), Dotcom has a point; Robert Mueller’s steadfast determination to avoid any interaction with Dotcom and Assange, only waiting to see them both buried in a maximum security USA prison (where they can’t talk.) Why? [1]

Because circumstantial evidence it was the (promptly assassinated) Seth Rich provided the DNC mails to Wikileaks with a memory stick is so strong, we are only missing the electronic trail of stick itself, and testimony of those (still alive) parties arranging transfer & receipt of data on the stick (together with evidence concerning the DNC mails’ chain of custody), or Kim Dotcom and Julian Assange (likely with an assist from Craig Murray), to send the whole Crowdstrike-Fancy Bear fairy tale to the sewer from which it had emerged (laundered false evidence likely originating with John Brennan’s CIA, THE reason our corrupt FBI leadership never permitted their cyber-experts to forensically examine the DNC servers), back down the toilet together with ‘the Russians did it’ accusation and Robert Mueller’s special counsel mandate. [2]

The Enigma(s)

Julian Assange’s only (or best) chance at avoiding extradition to the USA is to put the DNC mails evidence into the public domain and make the political price of his extradition too high, with the entire ‘the Russians did it’ case collapsed in the public purview. Instead, that moron insists on with-holding the evidence as a classified ‘bargaining chip’ evidenced in his attempt to negotiate a pardon from Trump via Dana Rohrabacher that utterly failed to get past the USA’s deep state minions (John Kelly) and saw Rohrabacher tuck his tail and withdraw from the effort. Result? Status quo ante, the ‘witch hunt’ (Robert Mueller farce) goes on.

Yet Russian propaganda continues to spin Wikileaks in a positive light even as that organization has caused tremendous damage to Russia’s geopolitical interests with allowing the false informing of the Western democracies populace with the DNC ‘hack’ fantasy, by refusing to put it to rest. Recent example is RT’s Jesse Ventura hosting guest John Kiriakou where they gush praise over Wikileaks and Kiriakou disingenuously insists Wikileaks has never given up a source, perhaps technically true…

At minute 10:50: “WikiLeaks is the only organization that has not blown a source” -John Kiriakou [3]

…but in actuality is a lie by omission, overlooking a non-Wikileaks player involved:

Setting aside the blatantly propagandized image of Wikileaks by Western press, one would expect either American ‘alternative’ media, or alternatively, Russian media, would have explored the numerous holes in what amounts to the urban legend surrounding Julian Assange & Wikileaks, because Assange’s  character is certainly not unassailable and the Wikileaks organization is certainly not immune to penetration and manipulation by intelligence agencies. Exploring this subject could/should include Assange’s refusal to provide evidence and name Seth Rich, a dead man, as the source, ending the charade, but he won’t. How is Assange getting such stupid advice as to refuse the act that could serve to save his butt by making his extradition too great a political price to pay? Yet exploring the obvious hasn’t happened in any serious way this investigator is aware of outside of this site’s own assessments. [6]

What is ‘radioactive’ having to do with exploring Wikileaks in this regard? Why isn’t alternative media and Russian media backing Kim Dotcom’s assertions and calling out Wikileaks on the DNC mails, there is quite strong independent evidence and sources, including Seymour Hersh, to support Seth Rich was the source. Is the alternative media intimidated at the thought of alienating Assange’s supporters to point of allowing the farce of ‘Russiagate’ go on? Is the real price the Russians are unwilling to risk to do with an idea the madmen of NATO would pull the nuclear trigger rather than face accountability, that is a case of ‘kid gloves’ ?

In the age of suicide bombers and ‘backpack nukes’, it makes little difference, someone needs to call the criminals out; either you chance it and call their bluff or likely we could all get blown to bits anyway [7]

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:

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

+

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” -theoretical physicist Bernard d’Espagnat

=

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.

Recalling A + B = C:

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

+

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

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.

Here follows are example of ‘Five Rules of Indigenous Understanding’ adapted to this circumstance:

1) I don’t know anything (no one can know what to expect)

Here is western thought’s first hurdle – in a culture that craves absolutes (‘truths’), a result of our world having been ‘objectified.’ Per d’Espagnat’s statement that reality, according to Quantum Mechanics, disallows Plato’s ‘objective’ interpretation, and European thought primarily stems from Plato’s idea of the nature of reality (human consciousness independent of individual objects), if d’Espangnat is correct, it follows the entire European foundation of perception is itself a misapprehension of reality, inclusive of so-called ‘natural law.’ In this case, a rule of ‘I don’t know anything’ is apropos. But this is quite scary to the Westerner because it accurately implies ‘no one can know what to expect.’ That’s likely why, example given, despite science’ best efforts, computer models often fail when applied to nature (for instance global warming), one of the many, extensive, one could say pervasive, failures throughout Western (or ‘Westernized’) cultures’ (Plato’s) presumption ‘to know.’

2) Never lie to yourself.

Here is the necessary follow-on rule. But it seems impossible to achieve already because if it were possible to accomplish and Western scientists were of a proclivity to be honest, they’d have (a majority) ’stopped the press!’ (re-framed the story) already, based on d’Espagnat’s observation, and the entire construct of European based (Western) mentality should have come under scrutiny as a misapprehension of reality in total. That (clearly) didn’t happen/isn’t happening. What in fact we DO see happening is, a sort of ‘if we pretend it isn’t there (overlook the greater implication) we don’t have to deal with it.’ This ‘scientific’ escapism (denial) is little different to what we see in a so-called religious experience or  ‘paradigm shift’ ‘away from negativity’ sans actual sight; where responsibility for environmental destruction is so simple as flipping your everyday light switch; when one traces the wiring back through the grid to the energy source and all of the destructive acts [to sentient ‘objects’] necessary to initiate the energy at its source. It’s not only a matter of simply too much to swallow for any culture shaped by Plato, where self-deceit is pervasive, it is a matter of selfishness arrived at in physical comfort when there is no sense of a deep gratitude that comes of the intense prayer related to making necessary survival fire in ancient way.

3) Practice invisibility.

This would be a consequent, necessary rule of practice for any person (or community) who dare not expose themselves to ‘the violence of projected ego’ (the Western mental construct, as ‘appreciated’ by numerous indigenous cultures.) However this practical ‘invisibility’ is also related to ‘the ability to listen and observe’ which are valued indigenous cultural phenomena in contrast to the loud, incessant, intra-species conversation of the Western social construct and lack of awareness nature is a wider, sentient environment surrounding it (the so-called objects.) This goes to the ancient (Plains Indian) rule of pipe-making (where pipes are used for communal bonding) which did not allow for ‘just anybody’ to make a pipe; An ignorant person would create an ignorant pipe, a dishonest person would create a dishonest pipe, a deceived person would create a deceived pipe, a dangerous person would create a dangerous pipe, a vindictive person would create a vindictive pipe; because sentient awareness transfers through touch. This is also why the Indigenous peoples would refrain from molesting nearly everything encountered (anti-archaeology) except that it were actually necessary. Quantum Mechanics should eventually sort this as well (also likely to be overlooked and ignored.)

4) No fear.

Fear is different to survival instinct but these two are often conflated in Western culture. In fact ‘fear’ as we know it, did not exist in the pre-Western world, this phenomenon was not endemic but expressly limited and it was the introduced ego concept (a greater, imperative separation) is largely responsible for the inroad of alcohol to native culture; the difference is stark. Common sense is the better description for survival instinct, fear attends uneasiness of spirit and one (Native observation) presumes this to be separation’s alien sense of ego understanding it is not real but an artificial construct built upon a lie (Plato’s objectivity as applied to self or ego-individuation.) This ego or pseudo-awareness fears death (senses it is not real) whereas survival instinct can be overcome without fear per necessity (self-sacrifice for a greater community good.)

5) Paradox is in everything (there can be a exception to any rule)

1) Sometimes one intuitively ‘knows’ and it works out correctly, 2) a seeming false perception can ultimately manifest as reality, 3) visibility has its place and time, for instance calling out a warning, 4) people absolutely should fear mistaken ideas (e.g. Plato) and 5) some laws are immutable.

*

Whether the individual holding ‘you’re one with your divine self’, or the collective ‘you’re one with mankind’, these are examples of Plato’s ‘objective’ exclusivity in the extreme. This is actually isolation from a larger reality per the observation of d’Espagnat. It is this foundation underlying the lie separating the ‘divine’ humankind from a ‘greater’ divine expressed throughout creation where humans are in actuality but one aspect. In fact, humans are no more ‘divine’ than the environment they prey upon. This false sense of ‘light’ (ego-individuation) actually is what promulgates a phenomenon of dark or evil. This is seen where ‘rationality’ is the progenitor of chaos. Without the one, you cannot know the other. This inextricably intertwined or larger, collective phenomenon of self-deceit allows the individuated ‘divine’ (ego) aspect to ‘flip a switch’ (so to speak) and not experience so much as a flicker of awareness and related sense of accountability as they contribute to destructive process by the unsustainable collective they are part and parcel of (illusion of any ‘new paradigm’ notwithstanding.) In short, if the larger environment is sentient/aware and we are but one aspect of that larger expression or consciousness (d’Espagnat’s observation), then ‘objectivity’ must be construed to initiate a cannibalism/cancer where one aspect of the organism (humanity) has gone out of sync. Until this meta-dilemma of ‘Plato is the cancer’ (originating with a light-dark paradigm pervasive in Indo-European thought) is faced, there can be no relevant or efficient problem solving. A case of ‘humanity no longer knows its place.’

Relevant to this preceding, Einstein nailed it: “Problems cannot be solved with the same mindset that created them.” This necessitates solutions for the Western world will not be derived from any culture overtaken by the objectivity of Plato (that is any of the many cultures of the Plato influenced modern, neocolonial, post-colonial infected or ‘global’ world.)

This European mentality which has overtaken us should end in one of three ways, likely in this order of possibility; 1) we will see this culture blow itself to bits, together with the rest of humanity, 2) social-environmental related collapse will bring it all down, no matter individual role or intention (includes a greater sentient awareness brings it all down) or, 3) intelligent self-dismantlement. Our duty is to work for this third, most remote possibility. To accomplish this, the first priority, via radical decentralization, is to point as many people/communities as possible to disconnecting from the grid while respecting a greater sentient environment’s self-sustaining method and process of healing (authentic intelligence.) To disconnect via avenue of intelligent self-dismantlement will absolutely require recovering from the poison of the Western culture’s (Plato’s) thinking and that can only begin with ‘I don’t know anything.’

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

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.

The left ones think I’m [on the] right, the right [wing] ones think I’m wrong -Leon Russell

To start, my message of what’s happening that’s important in its bearing on the new year, the USA animus towards Russia and all of its implications, we begin in a historical context with this screenshot naming the author of a patent lie:

Mueller_Lockerbie - 1

Insofar as 2018 stories, of the several geopolitical events of considerable importance, in my estimation it is the deep state’s Robert Mueller role-as-mole or charade as ‘special counsel’ should draw the necessary attention to underline the so-called ‘Trumanite’ network embedded in the USA’s security structures. Of the MANY exposures (in the public domain) of this man as a fraud devoted to what amounts to an anti-constitutional order that has stepped itself up and above the rule of law, there are three that stand out to degree to disqualify him as anything other than corrupt; 1) in his role as deputy attorney general during the Bush 41 administration, Robert Mueller headed up the USA end of the Lockerbie investigation that was later exposed by a Chief of Scots police as a frame-up of Libya due to false evidence and testimony provided by the USA, 2) it was Robert Mueller had been exposed by a United States Senate investigation (that was never acted on) showing the United States Department of Justice sandbagged the criminal case against Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) and subsequently 3) it was Robert Mueller’s FBI for a decade refused to arrest a serial killer, Enrique Prado, despite more than ample evidence (a proverbial ‘mountain’ of evidence) provided to the Department of Justice by both state and federal law enforcement.

The common thread in these events? It is the Central Intelligence Agency. The USA end of the Lockerbie investigation was tied to false physical evidence planted by the CIA and the FBI provided the ‘expert’ testimony of Thomas Thurman (exposed as a fraud) upholding the same under Robert Mueller’s watch, BCCI was all about the CIA’s Iran-Contra international arms and narcotics money laundering investigation Mueller worked to contain (damage control) and Enrique Prado is not only a serial killer responsible for multiple drug cartel related murders that Mueller’s FBI failed to act on, but also happens to double as a high ranking CIA official who moved on to Blackwater where the CIA’s own contract killings became outsourced (Prado remains free & has never been prosecuted.) Of the many instance of Robert Mueller’s dirty work for CIA, these three cases are remarkable for the fact they are reasonably indisputable. [1], [2], [3]

It follows, when Robert Mueller is assigned to support ‘the Russians did it’ forgone conclusion at the trial by Western media, it demands investigation of Mueller’s endeavors and it cannot come as a surprise there are numerous, major holes in ‘the Russians did it’ story replete with CIA fingerprints (Bruce & Nellie Ohr, Fusion GPS and Crowdstrike.) It follows, these are the 2018 ronaldthomaswest.com stories that bear on what will follow in the new year:

https://ronaldthomaswest.com/2018/12/20/usa-really-robert-mueller/

These preceding stories concern a social poison that could morph into WWIII when you think about in certain terms; The USA’s deep state/intelligence agencies framing Russia as a criminal with (excuse me) ‘trumped up’ charges is not like falsely accusing your local rival mobster. The difference is tremendous and what is frightening is, the small mentalities who believe they can produce a stool pigeon, e.g. Christopher Steele, to give false testimony and expect the result will be a conviction, are creating a very big problem for all of us, because you cannot simply lock Russia up … and the falsely convicted are not prone to be especially friendly towards their prosecutors. When the Russians see opportunity to rectify this injustice, because the perpetrators almost certainly will never admit their fraud, likely result will not be pretty. You and I dear reader, could pay for that. In a more radical scenario, with continuing pressure and tensions piled on, everyone could pay. Sans bullshit happy greetings, welcome to 2019.

Moving on, 2018 is remarkable for the fact I’d finally jelled my personal philosophy into print in the English language. This was exceptionally difficult because the pre-Western civilization that has shaped my views is not conducive to translation to Western thought and language per se. In fact I’m prepared to state almost all past anthropological endeavors in this regard are hopelessly flawed, especially those stemming from so-called ‘native studies’ programs (and their academic progeny) for the fact color of skin creates a pseudo or deceptive perception of validity. ‘Native studies’ is a politically correct euphemism for Western anthropology dressed up in red skins in a society which seems hopelessly trapped into lying to itself. Here is my attempted work-around:

My modest blog’s projected performance for 2018: 116 hits daily (on average for a bit under 3,500 per month.) This is up from 2017, but 2014 had been a stronger year, due to Ron Unz linking his assessment of the MH17 false-flag Malaysian airliner shoot-down over Novorossiya (the Donbass area of Ukraine) to my assessment of that same event.

Started in mid-2012, following Alternet discontinuing (and eventually deleting) my ‘soapbox’ blog, ronaldthomaswest.com began to get a bit of traction in 2013, with 2014 the blog’s strongest year, pulling in 45,000 hits. 2015 had about 40,000 (a lingering effect of Ron Unz linking to the MH17 piece), 2016 was at 26,000, 2017 bumped up to 36,500 views and 2018 is up to just over 42,000 reads. Over the lifespan of this blog, we are nearing 200,000 hits.

Alfreda Bikowsky and the Definition of Stupid, lampooning CIA renditions to torture with real statistics, is the most steadily read article over time (since it had been published in December 2014), and has consistently gained on the MH17 assessment and is this site’s most popular and enduring satire. As things stand, it is on track to become this sites all time most read piece in 2019.

The following ‘top ten’ are not all published in 2018 but were the most read for the year. The numbers are probably a bit higher than reflected in these stats as of 26 December; as there are approximately 3,000 reads for 2018 in the category ‘homepage/archives’ some of which probably are hits of articles in the following list. Amazingly, works in relation to my Native American experiences are the top two.

Finally, I continue to hold that sheer numbers are not necessarily the best marker for a blogs importance, who reads can be as important or more important. In regards to this, greetings to the spooks, some of you I admire and know, others I despise but nevertheless know you read here (and know who some of you are.)

Author’s Preface

My Christian, Muslim and Jewish readers, when perusing this series, should bear in mind Jesus is a much abused historical figure, bearing a name that has been used for cynical manipulations since the era of the Crusades. There is a world of difference between the authentic Jesus and the Jesus put forward by radical Christian Zionists who would cynically see the Christians of Syria made extinct (along with Alawites and Druze) by machinations that enrich the American military-industrial complex in tandem with the Israeli radical right wing and Bibi Netanyahu’s pursuit of the Yinon Plan for a Greater Israel. If one gave it one minute’s thought, it raises a question: why are there Christians on both sides of every issue?

This series explores the behaviors of faux Christians and their dishonest allies, that is if authentic Christians follow the Sermon on the Mount. The two cannot be conflated; you cannot stamp out Syria’s Christians in the name of Jesus except to practice oxymoron or hypocrisy. But that would be precisely the outcome if the USA & Israel’s employ of Salafi-Takfiri to overthrow Assad were to prevail. Authentic Christians should be deeply disturbed at the following narrative little different to Jews practicing Tikkun Olam should be deeply disturbed at Netanyahu’s role in the same. No doubt the authentic practicing Sufi who reads here will know precisely what I am speaking of as well, as there are sincere parties in the 1/2 of each group determined to be ‘the righteous of God.’

The Plot To Capture The White House Part 1 treason at the apex

The Plot To Capture The White House Part 2 treason at the apex

The Plot To Capture The White House Part 3 treason at the apex

Additional thoughts: Historically (since JFK’s assassination) it had been more or less CIA neoliberal elements had controlled the White House; best reflected in the nominally ‘conservative’ Christian-Republican George H.W. Bush, whose criminal behaviors were influenced by his (and the CIA’s) Ivy League roots. Ironically, it was the culturally West Texan George W. Bush saw the pendulum begin to swing towards a more radical breed, or hard-core evangelical members of the Doug Coe cult, aligned with the Pentagon, ascend towards practical control of the White House, presently reflected in Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, Dan Coats, Jeff Sessions, Betsy DeVoss (sister of Eric Prince), and The Generals.

The third historical player (other than CIA & Pentagon) in this tug-of-war would be MOSSAD. All of these cooperate in some areas, and contest in other areas of policy. Each of these vie to control the White House. But just now, there is a fourth agency in the play, that is the personality of Donald Trump, conducive to manipulations but not control. The present era is likely the first era, since Allen Dulles had been Director, the CIA hasn’t had the upper-hand. Interesting times!

Moreover, whether ‘God’s Chosen’ in the original Zionist form, or the ‘new chosen’ in the radical Christian Zionist iteration of übermensch, these present Zionist ‘partners’ fully intend that each will attempt to annihilate the other before all is said and done. There’s not much room for the rest of us (other than as collateral damage) in their plans.

Afterthought would be; the more in the remote past the National Security Act of 1947 had become embedded in the USA’s institutions of governance, the more in the remote past de jure (factual) democratic and constitutional principles had been in play. ‘Liberal democracy’ is just an existential threat (to all of us) and cosmic joke at this point in time.

Footnote: Insofar as the Vatican’s fascist fingers in the intelligence agencies’ pie, the curious won’t be disappointed (or will be terribly disappointed depending on your  degree of cynicism) with a read of this (external link) 1983 investigative history-report that remains relevant today: ‘Their Will Be Done.’ A more recent assessment HERE.

I

This political essay is, in the Western academic sense, necessarily shallow. Why shallow? For two reasons, primarily; 1) the thought all analysis must be subject to exam for the fact of necessary cultural bias, when bias must be synonymous to belief, and 2) this essay does not delve deeply into the subject in ‘academic’ sense but necessarily notes certain phenomena in a context of inter-cultural observation exterior to what is known (in the common vernacular) as the ‘ivory tower.’ This is necessitated by the observation Western academia can be (more often than not is, as a matter of rule) a feedback loop where mistaken ideas are perpetrated by a process of ‘peer review’ or subjected to strict framing by ‘empiricism’ (3rd party interpretation) with a vested interest in protecting a status quo.

The method is not Western but derives from oral history form exterior to European culture. This method proposes a story constructed from metadata and is a hybrid in the sense philosophical elements of non-Western oral history and related underlying principles of thought and format is applied to (or superimposed upon) Western metadata.

It should be noted with short explanation that, in context of the preceding, the following is influenced or shaped by the rules of ancient tribal matriarchy modified or conformed to Western language and thinking. Necessarily adapting the following to the culture (language) of ‘Europe’ is neither an easy nor comfortable fit. This matriarchy had been far away from western feminism or the dualism of the larger ‘old world’, the difference is stark; the (matriarchal) perception would be the western feminists, when competing with men, are becoming the very thing they despise, an order of chauvinism issuing diktat upon the other sex.

In the ancient Native American matriarchal model, radically mistaken Western anthropological interpretations and stereotype set aside, it was the elder women educated the young males to time of puberty, creating from that human clay young giants that should mature into practical demigods (ethical titans) when exiled to male society; by comparison superior in every respect to today’s typical Western male. Complimenting this, the elder women trained the females to care for these males as nothing less than divine beings. The sexes were seen in complimentary light, not opposites, with great respect between their respective worlds. In the course of this social phenomenon, women were the philosophical disciplinarians, stabilizing a radically decentralized society, where men were the enforcers. However youth might have seen opportunity at rehabilitation, woe unto the woman or man who trespassed certain immutable laws, the elder women insisted on a judgement that saw any socially criminal woman (for instance persistent gossip causing problems between families, or promiscuity involving married men) disfigured and enslaved for life, whereas certain criminal men (rapists, example given) were executed outright. Beyond this, there was little law other than practicing a high ethical code inclusive (especially) of a self restraint, often translated (somewhat inaccurately) as ‘non-interference’, extending to all of one’s surroundings, whether human or natural, where all environment is perceived as ‘social.’ Top-down management in the Western sense had been unknown. As such, this social organization had remained in a stable state of equilibrium for millennia.

Grasping and understanding this system, together with living the expected behavior, contrasted to the rampant criminality of a culture remarkable for its compulsion to interfere and control everyone’s business, the present state of the world remind the culturally intact indigenous of nothing so much as trapped in a dark science fiction cinema plot.

It is in the preceding context this essay contemplates top-down hierarchy and the likes of Pence, Pompeo, Kelly, Mattis and Bolton on the one side (with Trump disqualified as an atypical Western political mentality), and Vladimir Putin, Dmitry Medvedev and Alexander Dugin, on the other side, and more generally, the West versus Russia.

The first or Western group, are the ‘liberal democracy’ phenomenon explained as a peculiar ‘religious sociopathy’ sourced malignant curse on civilization in the essay Beware the Perception [1]. Understanding the Russian group is a bit more tricky, as it must depend on acquaintance with Russians who are not particularly political (to temper bias), and secondary sources. It was just such an apolitical source, a Russian whose observation is the Russian mentality, although nominally European, is significantly modified away from typical European thought by its longtime exposure to, one even might say to some extent integration to, Asian cultural influences. This is not to speak of ‘classical’ Asian influence so much as the Siberian cultural influence and other ‘tribal’ societies with longtime influence on Russian mentality. Immediately, from a (perhaps distant but maybe not culturally distant at all) ancient Native American perspective there seems an understanding of one aspect of Russia, the Russian individual’s ability to self sacrifice for the sake of the larger whole. As a metaphor it could described it something like this: when two face five in potentially lethal circumstance, if it were (Western) European men facing Europeans and the fewer number had some slight leverage (everyone’s weapons at the ready) the smaller party should name who they would kill before they died. This might back the larger party down. If it were (Western) Europeans facing a larger group of indigenous tribal people, the strategy that might work would certainly NOT name the individual but simply point out one (at least) of the opposing party must die. Why the difference? The (Western) European men put a higher value on the individual, no one should set the precedent for his own ‘betrayal.’ On the other hand, if you were to name the tribal individual, that very named individual would be likeliest to initiate the attack, ‘to take a bullet for the boys.’ In the tribal people’s concept of a successful strategy, the compatriot is more important to the individual than the individual’s life. The Russian mentality seems very Native American in this respect. Siberia’s influence?

In this preceding regard, when one contemplates Putin has Dmitry Medvdev on his liberal left and Alexander Dugin on his conservative right, men with ostensibly opposed approaches to future vision of Russia, it might be expected it is a very wrong perception this is somehow a cynical manipulation on Putin’s part, playing one off the other, and underestimates the Russian character. Suppose, just suppose, Medvedev is loyal to Russia beyond his personal political prejudices and Dugin is the same. Were this actuality, Medvedev is Putin’s loyal foot-soldier for the sake of Russia, more so than personal loyalty to Putin, and Dugin lends his philosophical expertise to Putin’s associates with identical motivation. In this case, the three of them might be Russian patriots in a sense of patriotism rising above that demonstrated by the politicians of the USA where Hillary Clinton back-stabbed Bernie Sanders for the sake of her individual ambitions; and likely reaction of Pence, Pompeo, Kelley, Mattis and Bolton would be to snort a laugh through the nose at the very suggestion of Sanders as a serious contributor to the Trump administration. Western individualism fences out collective action for the common good, and this even goes so far as Sander’s refusal to compromise his ‘individual’ image as a loyal Democratic Party operative and step away from that corrupted institution to attempt a credible 3rd party run for the greater good or opening a future for his supporters.

Into the vacuum this individualism creates in the American politic steps the ‘shadow government’ (corporate board personalities) and their ‘deep state’ minions (bought in bureaucrats.) Never were there so dangerous a world where a ‘super-power’ sees military-industrial profit and related individual power (wealth-greed) supplant a patriotism of personal integrity dedicated to the greater good.

Relevant to this, 2024 will be a momentous year, that is, if the world is to survive the psychopathy of the liberal democracies’ determination to encircle, isolate and dismantle Russia. Rome had its’ Nero, ‘modern’ Russia had its’ Gorbachev, who lost his grip, and its’ Yeltsen, who surrendered his sobriety prior to Russia manifesting a man who has raised Russia from the coming ashes of almost certain ruin. What is to insure a post-Putin political consolidation of Russia will see this nation placed in competent hands? Certain able men serve the interests of Russia in the present moment but none of them are immortal. One dissolute ruler can undo the work of ten titans preceding, so one might hope Russians look to the psychology of Siberia as in Russia’s best interest, sans liberal delusions of individualism and return of the oligarch.

II

When compared to the top-down Western hierarchy of Europe, and its’ many iterations of violent, internal and inter-national (within Europe) upheavals, the radically decentralized, ancient tribal matriarchy with millennia of stability, does at first glance look to be the superior model. But then, one is reminded the decentralized system stood no chance when confronted with Europe and its’ hierarchical or concentrated power in pursuit of wealth that is become capitalism. How could one encounter the concentrated power (wealth) of a top-down hierarchy and not experience a perfect slaughter of the decentralized authority? Is there a middle way?

Simplified, why the decentralized or tribal model sustained for millennia worked like this: there was no opportunity for abuse of power because the leadership was immediately accountable to the community at the local level. This system was ‘federalized’ in a sense where the communities each sent a single elected representative as a ‘spokes person’ with no power other than to express his community’s view to a gathering of like representatives who elected a greater ‘spokes person’ with no power other than to express a consensus view, where the communities would meet to determine future direction. This system was founded on immutable law that laid down a constraint preventing any deviation from the common good, down to the nuclear family level, without exception. In other words, if it were true the law recognized the common good as inviolable across the spectrum of the allied communities, the law also necessarily recognized no one community’s best interest could be singled out as expendable to the benefit of the other communities. For this system to function, communities must have real power over the totality of their environment at the local level. This system would be altogether incompatible with hierarchical structure imposed from the exterior. The fatal element concerning this decentralized structure in the present day is, if the local community were so empowered to protect its values at every level, and those values were inclusive of minimal social and environmental impacts for purpose of maintaining traditional lifestyles, the local communities would have not only a power to block certain national development initiatives, a corporate model of sustained development becomes nonviable.

III

History points to top-down hierarchy as subject to collapse. Native America experimented with this form of hierarchy, and if we are to correctly consider the oral histories, these hierarchies were imports from elsewhere (prior to Columbus) as well noted in some instance by European historians, example given:

“I saw in this land an Indian woman and a child who would not stand out among white blonds. These people [of the upper class] say that they were the children of the gods” – Pedro Pizarro, chronicler of the Spanish conquest of Peru

The Toltec collapsed prior to the Aztec and the Maya collapsed prior to the Spaniards, Cahokia collapsed prior to the arrival of the English and no doubt the Aztec, Inca and Maya (2nd iteration) would have collapsed as well, as opposed to being conquered, had they been left to their devices. The rise and fall of hierarchies related to Europe, with its many internecine wars, are too many to bother with counting. Asia and its classic cultures, as well, has its numerous examples of rise & fall and meanwhile, the Blackfeet tribal culture and others, based on the decentralized model shortly described in the preceding, had remained stable for millennia.

Top-down hierarchy, by its nature, depends on exploitation of humankind in its’ environment. If the term ‘capitalize’ (take advantage of) is self-descriptive in every respect, the associated deceit of ‘democracy’ notwithstanding, by contrast it would be of superficial consequence if the Marxist model claimed emancipation for the ‘workers’, the workers ended up working for someone other than themselves and in practice this meant the Central Committee, Politburo and Secretariat in what amounted to a top-down hierarchy, no matter any pretense of power derived from the ‘base’ of the pyramid. Relevant to the preceding, whether the capital model or the Marxist model, the economic development necessary to ‘progress’ has proved environmentally destructive, inclusive of the human social environment. In this regard it should be noted the necessary underpinning of progress that is ‘sustained development‘ of natural resources, is based precisely on a principle of cancer. Where do you see this proposed fact amending policy? Would a healthy policy ‘manage’ its cancer (state of denial) or work to remove its’ cause?

It follows, a culture practicing ‘plausible deniability’ should be examined as suffering from a virus, an underlying principle or driver of a sickness in the Western, modern, or European (readers choice) human spiritual state. This diagnosis is as easy as the simple and very black & white observation where a culture incompatible with its pretensions should assert liberal democracy is egalitarian. There is nothing egalitarian whatsoever in a scheme consolidating corporate-fascist control where feeding weapons into conflict increases a geographic theater’s social alienation. This in turn increases the violence level which demands more armaments applied to suppression of the increased level of violence, an oxymoron in actuality; and all of this vicious cycle is then billed to the consequent financially drowning common citizen-taxpayer while the liberal democracies’ stockholder-oligarchs are fed obscene amounts of money. The only egalitarian opportunity within this plausibly deniable scheme as applies to the liberal democracies’ ‘war on terror’ is the opportunity to sell one’s soul; as detailed in a rather ‘Calvinist’ (sociopathic) American folk-monograph: ‘The Devil and Daniel Webster.‘

Plausible denial must be as old as vertical hierarchy and related civilizations. Insofar as the ‘cradle of civilization’ responsible for birthing the modern liberal democracies or, alternatively stated, a culture incompatible with its pretensions of egalitarianism, one need look no farther than the English philosophers.

Thomas Hobbes contribution to Western philosophy is a typical self-imploding set of contradictions, in an era where Gutenberg had practically made it possible for anyone literate to become a blogger of that era. Hobbes, finding himself at loose ends, decided he would become a Western philosopher (‘confidence man’ would be the better description.) The recipe is simple in the Western European tradition; fill a 900 liter bag with verbiage-verbosity like Bernard-Henry Lévy, engineered as to incredibly complicate a subject, à la James Joyce, and discover result in generations of philosophical progeny spending endless semesters wrestling a ‘Leviathan‘, whilst attempting sense of nonsense.

Distilled from Hobbes’ inordinately complex, presumed order of things, his points may be summed up so: In our natural state or in raw ‘nature’, mankind is an inestimable beast prone to every savage act where:

“the life of man [is] solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short”

And in the same moment, without Man’s ‘natural’ understanding, God’s inspirations cannot be known:

“we shouldn’t renounce our senses and experience, or our natural reason, which is the undoubted word of God”

Do you suppose Hobbes actually meant to insinuate understanding derived from a ‘naturally endowed’ beastly nature inspires one to deeper knowledge of God’s message? Is he acknowledging ‘God’s image, man’ is naturally possessed of the violence we have seen Englishmen visit upon every culture deemed inferior to their own? Certainly not. If Hobbes were of a proclivity to be honest, he wouldn’t have to bury the contradictions of his culture in a massive circumlocution that can serve no other purpose than to conceal the facts. What we are actually looking at is, the phenomena of Western philosophers burying their culture’s contradictions in immense complications, so those contradictions never need be faced. Hobbes is a master of this common (but patently dishonest) philosophical fraud. And then, we have John Locke.

The similar problem with John Locke’s “An Essay Concerning Human Understanding” is, his philosophy demands all men are born a completely blank slate upon which everything is drawn subsequently. In effect, there is no innate understanding bestowed on man in which case there can be no innate spirit. If that were true, then his holding…

“The Bible is one of the greatest blessings bestowed by God on the children of men. It has God for its author; salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture for its matter. It is all pure”

…demands the awareness of omnipresent “God”, who ‘created man in his image,‘ drew a portrait of self based in a perfect human ignorance. Again we find a fundamental contradiction buried in dishonest method employing circumlocution. Similar contradictions (culturally self-excusing form of denial) may be found in either the works or lives of Francis Bacon, David Hume, Jeremy Bentham and more recently, Richard Dawkins:

“Plants cannot think, and you’d have to be pretty eccentric to believe they can suffer. Plausibly the same might be true of earthworms” -Richard Dawkins

In fact earthworms writhe mightily in pain, while being skewered the length of their bodies on a fish-hook, where technique requires the shank of the hook must be entirely concealed in the worm’s living flesh. And plants can’t think? Plants & trees remain Platonic ‘objects’ for purposes of Dawkin’s scientific atheism and yet are known to communicate  by land and by air. But for reluctance to look, where Dawkins plausible denial could be confronted, is in the modern lab:

“The [Cartesian-Platonic] 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” -theoretical physicist Bernard d’Espagnat

What Russia is confronted with in its relations with the Anglo-Saxon world, and the related liberal democracies, or for that matter in a larger sense, the culture of Europe, is a denial mechanism.

IV

One cannot pretend to know how the Siberian cultures affected and/or modified the Russian mentality if one were not Russian and have no sense of the historical context of that experience from within the Russian community. On the other hand, this naivete also might be useful, sans Russian cultural bias, particularly were the Siberian cultures to have some very fundamental similarities to the Native American, and this would appear to be the case as detailed by Karl Schlesier in his “The Wolves of Heaven.” There is no pretense made the cultural critique herein [the present essay] would come from any but the tribal side; however any criticism must be oblique as there is no presumption to go direct to the Siberian tribes’ Russian experience.

That said, if, as expected, the Russian ability to self-sacrifice and rise above the Western or European individualism is due to Siberian (or other tribal) cultural influence, there should be other Siberian (or other tribal) cultural markers as well. One of those markers should be an impelled intention to state the facts in no uncertain terms per the American folk proverb ‘say what you mean and mean what you say.’ Now, comes the relevant anecdote that might surprise (or discover denial in) many more Americans than Russians:

It was in America from its earliest days, but with increasing frequency post trans-Appalachian migrations or from 1830s and onset of Manifest Destiny, through the 1880s or end of the Indian Wars, tens of thousands of mixed marriages occurred between White European males and tribal women during the American expansion west. This marks the period of not only Manifest Destiny with its many wagon trains west, but also the ‘mountain men’ (fur trade), gold rush (California, Montana), Civil War (many thousands of Army deserters fled west, Mark Twain is perhaps the most famous of these), aftermath of Civil War (dislocated populace due to devastation of the South and lost livelihoods), where many single males took aboriginal wives during an era which had seen enhanced mortality of aboriginal males throughout (Indian wars.) The majority of offspring from these marriages were absorbed into what became the predominantly White Western states population. The result of this had been quite unexpected; the children of what amounted to robbers, with great disdain for the rights of the aboriginal people they had abused, became the precursor of conservative, highly principled men of the Western territories where one’s word was one’s sacred bond, or men who ‘say what they mean and mean what they say.’ How did this happen? The aboriginal women raised these children in the only way they knew how: to become ethical titans. Within a subsequent generation, again and again, a class of men sprang up whose handshake on any oral agreement was an inviolable contract.

The tribal peoples very survival had, over millennia, demanded accurate reporting, placing a high value on truth and this value passed, via the aboriginal women, into the Western territories new populace. The pity is, this social value never became a prerequisite to wield power in the American political experiment, rather having remained localized and ultimately become overwhelmed by the corrupt nature (or as the case may be, reactionary forces, such as the religious right) of liberal democracy per se.

It is true it would be a speculation from the North American indigenous perspective, as to whether the present day Russia, finding itself somewhat freed from its’ Euro-centric political past, were to discover its’ source of impatience with the liberal democracies pervasive lying (a denial mechanism) stems from the Siberian cultural influence. However if this were indeed the case, it should surprise no one familiar with certain tribal cultures.

V

Ostensible Siberian (or other tribal) cultural influences aside, the relevant question would be to what extent the self-deceit of Europe DOES hold the Russian mentality in its grip. If this small inquiry had begun with insistence exploring the subject matter must necessarily be in some sense shallow, let us conclude, if only for a moment, what must be shallow is a means to intelligent end; a tribal bias circumventing the European philosophers’ propensity to bury the contradictions of European culture in circumlocution.

To begin, let us examine what would seem patent nonsense on its’ face: the thought ‘without the chainsaw, there could be no advanced space exploration.’ But suddenly this absurd proposal might seem less far-fetched, were one to consider the idea in a sightly refined form; 1) chainsaws are typically employed to strip valleys slated to be filled with the water of hydroelectric projects 2) in turn feeding the electric grid supplying the immense power requirement of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (particle accelerator) which 3) provides necessary understanding to design advanced probes capable of long term survival in space.

Now, we can extrapolate from this immediate preceding and consider it is not only the altered environment from hydroelectric but also gas, coal and nuclear, with all of its’ environmental cost, makes powering the Large Hadron Collider possible. Meanwhile, the chainsaw not only fells the Amazon and the forests of Indonesia, but also encroaches in Siberia, while feeding a principle, that is sustained development, a principle of cancer, that has made development of civilization possible to point of exploring space. It follows, the tribal understanding’s challenge to the honest Russian physicist would be to give us the mathematical equation providing the sustained development related ratio of damage to our environment to the ratio of achieved advancement in knowledge necessary to explore space. God did not provide us with wings, let alone propulsion rockets integrated to space suits, maybe the intention was to keep our feet on the ground.

VI

Whether for 14,000 years or 40,000 or more years, a concept similar to intelligent design, which Richard Dawkins rejects as matter of fact, preexisted the European top down hierarchy through which Dawkin’s science descends. We don’t know if this idea were borrowed by, or influenced, the Deists of the Enlightenment who also were essentially believers in Intelligent Design recalling Thomas Paine…

“The wonderful structure of the universe, and everything we behold in the system of the creation, prove to us, far better than books can do, the existence of a God, and at the same time proclaim His attributes. It is by the exercise of our reason that we are enabled to contemplate God in His works, and imitate Him in His ways”

…but we can know it is the study of quantum mechanics moved one of its’ primary researchers to the same:

“I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence. Believe me, everything that we call chance today won’t make sense anymore. To me it is clear that we exist in a plan which is governed by rules that were created, shaped by a universal intelligence and not by chance” -theoretical physicist Michio Kaku

Recalling theoretical physicist Bernard d’Espagnat stating…

“The 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”

…consider these preceding and then have a look at how it is Native American tribal people were thinking:

“In 1918 Christian missionary A. McG. Beede took Yale graduate Harry Boise to the Standing Rock Sioux and Turtle Mountain Chippewa reservations on separate occasions, where Boise explained scientific ideas to tribal leaders. Beede wrote in his report that both groups immediately understood the concepts without difficulty, saying: “There is no difficulty in leading an old Teton Sioux Indian to understand the ‘scientific attitude’ that the processes that give rise to phenomena may be more and more known by man and may be, to some extent, controlled by man, and that in this way the forces of nature may become a mainspring of progress in the individual and in the human race. The idea of atoms and electrons is easy and pleasing to an old Indian, and he grasps the idea of chemistry.” -Vine Deloria, Evolution, Creationism, and Other Modern Myths

The two tribal groups spokesmen replied to Harry Boise, following discussion among themselves:

”The ’scientific view’ is inadequate to explain … how man is to find and know a road along which he wishes and chooses to make this said progress, unless Manitoo by his spirit, guides the mind of man, keeping human beings just and generous and hospitable”  -Rising Sun, Chippewa

“The knowledge and use of any or all the powers of the objects on Earth around us, is as liable to lead a man wrong as to lead him right, because it is merely power, with no way of knowing how to use it correctly- except that spirit is with a man’s spirit for the light” -Red Tomahawk, Sioux

When Rising Sun says ‘Manitou by his spirit’ (guides the mind of man) he is speaking of collective creation, our very surroundings are intelligent design integrated to nature, or one might say omnipresent god. When Red Tomahawk says ‘spirit is with a man’s spirit’ (for the light), he is saying the same thing, both these men, at the end of their cultures’ many millennia era of knowledge, are looking at what d’Espangnat stumbles upon nearly 100 years later; recognizing an innate consciousness embodied in our surroundings plays in everything we can experience.

Moreover, Red Tomahawk is discriminating between a sole, intimate knowledge of any single object’s raw power, and an understanding of the larger purpose concerning the nature of that very object, recognizing these are distinct things. His understanding (different to the European concept) opens to the possibility of allowing for the trees (recalling trees communicate by land and by air), stones, or for that matter, everything surrounding us, to possess consciousness and to ‘know’ purpose exterior to the European self-centered or ‘individual’ cultural shaping and resultant handicapped perception. And it is only when this larger door of understanding is opened, we can know how to listen, know the ‘timing’ (the knowledge of creation as synchronized, to grasp nature as a living clock), and to ‘see’ our way through the multiple dimensions of reality; as the nearly extinct Native thought embodied in now past Native American elders so often attempted to point out to us, when stating ‘it’s all related.’ In retrospect, who are the primitives? The tribal people? Or the people who, if they were to work out honest equation, must discover their ‘advancement’ & ‘progress’ via method of sustained development exploiting, desecrating one could say, the omnipresence of what amounts to the living god expressing us through creation, must point to our ceasing to exist and nullify awareness? Jesus admonished “Know you not you are gods?” What sort of gods should we propose to be? Those who put creation to death through the arrogance of the individual ego? That would be the effect of sustained development, globalism and the international oligarchs’ cancer on the very expression sustaining us.

Summed up from the ancient tribal view, when incorporating the modern understanding, our existence is Macro-Gaia (in the big picture) or all is [inter] related, from sub-atomic particle to planetary structures, with an element of Vitalism (the ‘great mystery’), taken together presenting as quasi or mimic intelligent design. The intelligent design would be ‘quasi or mimic’ because the tribal take on this aspect would be better described as ‘intelligent expression’, ‘design’ implies an egoic projection or attribution, whereas ‘expression’ should not. This thought goes to the ancient tribal persona of humility: There are some things one simply cannot know. This is why (in the tribal view) we cannot know ‘god’ except as a projection where man has created god in man’s image. The mystery of our existence cannot see god individuated except in a sense of arrogant projection of individual self, the ultimate self-deception. Our creation and inseparable god is named a “mystery” for the very fact of its’ indecipherable nature; and when this is accepted, by a community in its entirety, the mystery opens at several levels but always with a caveat: no-one can know absolutes; as ‘reality’ is an elastic thing with frequently shifting parameters and any related ‘truths’ are often of fleeting relevance. Absolutes, something the European monotheists crave, are counter to flexible adjustments necessary to navigating reality, example given, Indo-European ‘civilization’ and its’ hierarchal relatives have a habit of rising and falling; wherein this Western civilized perception ‘truths’ become absolutes, leading to a brittle construction when the elasticity of reality shifts away from any particular society’s foundation in the Indo-European family of nations. Brittle constructions imply impending collapse as the given society’s parameter of ‘perceived reality’, which is actually a state of inter-generational perception in stasis, becomes farther and farther removed from the shifting nature of reality in actuality.

I somehow doubt the major Indo-European family’s enlightened figures, whether in the historical order of Krishna, Buddha, (or the adopted) Jesus and Mohammed, made any pretense to embody the entirety of the Great Mystery of our existence but it didn’t matter, lesser men were certain to falsely confer this upon them; insuring lesser ideas became fixtures of those respective cultures. The many cases of rise & fall throughout history are example of the hierarchies stasis of thinking or inter-generational inflexibility of thought pointing to repeat of collapse. There is likely no greater coming probability of collapse than that of present day Europe and its’ foundation in the objectivity of Plato.

Finally, this ‘outside looking in’ analysis from the tribal side holds the focus on the individual sets the collective adrift, there is no anchor to prevent a collective suicide where archetypal myth determines Europe create its’ collective fate altogether independently of its’ leaders; when events take on involuntary volition powered by a ‘super-conscious’ intelligence that is organized, functions as though it were managed by individuals (even when it is not) and the result is, we can read into today’s events as though they were managed in a sense they actually are not. If this were the case, the idea the West’s leaders could correct course is impotent. This collective ‘meme’ can explain what is called in the biblical sense ‘principalities of darkness’ or that is to say a ‘spirit of evil’ progressing in a sense of superstition yet effectively implementing reality. Thusly Western culture creates reality independent of the individual’s aware thought, despite appearance this is certainly by design, when design is not actually the case. Such would explain a belief in Illuminati when in fact it did not exist in any factual ego-aware or organized form but nevertheless manifest as an observable phenomena of symptoms or consequence derived from a collective super-conscious phenomenon. A conclusion could be the European mentality has created paradox of a seeming unconscious yet ‘super aware’ phenomenon of evil as its’ cultural driver. The natural progression to end result would be, when a large portion of an aggressive society collectively believes in an Armageddon archetype, all of the necessary players will naturally manifest in a super-conscious organized format empowered to bring it off, where no one individual or group of individuals or players could effect this by individual or personal volition; nevertheless the super-consciousness of the event’s initiating group insures creation of this reality for the collective whole. A case of Shiva causing Europe to fall on its’ sword?

There is a remarkable convergence in the apocalyptic ‘good versus evil’ fables driving our world’s several fundamentalist religions’ reality. If a futuristic cosmology of destruction is the effective driver of what appears to be pointed to inevitable catastrophic outcome, better to change fables should be a rational conclusion. Or alternatively, turn to ancient tribal intelligence for inspiration. A society founded on a redevelopment of North America-Siberia tribal principles and related ethics should prevent Man’s technical applications aspiring to exercise the authority of God.

If one can be convinced, cultural bias notwithstanding, radical decentralization with total community control over environment, social and physical, is the only road out of today’s geopolitical madness and environmental train wreck; with a strict model of community self-sufficiency demanding high degree of care for the natural environment of the world we live in, one should not be so naive to expect this should happen overnight. One only need recall what happened to the said tribal cultures in North America when faced with top-down hierarchy and the thoughtless, multiple aggressions of Europe. The history of Manifest Destiny and its European predecessor (and contemporary), that is colonialism (and present day corporate neocolonialism), should caution not only the tribal people, but also Russia and much of today’s world. Empire covets the untapped, raw natural resources of Siberia, and Russia herself, if she fully commits to the European path (never forget what went on while Yeltsen was drunk!) will cease to be a reservoir of possibilities for future sanity. In this regard, one should not envy President Putin, even had the internal circumstance he inherited been sane; never yet has Europe learned from its’ mistakes, but only compounds them, and it cannot be denied Russia is also Europe. Let’s hope Russia’s most remarkable minds step up to not only support consolidating a future Russia pointed to its’ best interests but also fearlessly support new direction open to possibility of discarding the European ego’s (whether individual or collective) most damnable traits.

How Europe came about was the fusion of Plato’s misogyny (denigration of female intelligence principles) with the Judeo-Christian archetype myth ‘The Fall.’ It would not matter whether you were an astro-physicist with an IQ of 170, all are subject to the reality-perception limitations created by European cultural shaping, from infancy, of this artificial, internal conflict of intelligence or conflicting light-dark duality. This unnatural duality (split) is reflected in the personalities of those high IQs in science who can see no oxymoron in the fact of any proposed ‘saved by science future’ is relying on the culture and mentality producing the technologies destroying us, to save us. Grasping this oxymoron of conflicted spirit is key to surviving the trap the Western mentality had set for itself. As Einstein had noted, our “Problems cannot be solved with the same mindset that created them”
