So… I have a question. What exactly are we supposed to be doing to change things? Because everybody is very good at stating all of the problems with this world and our societies in it. Lots of us are "awake" now. We see how the governments want to control us. We understand that the "Elite" thinks of us as slaves. We get how the media is biased and tries to brainwash us. Etc. So… now what?

All people seem to offer are vague "pep-talk" type statements and questions. You know the ones: "how long are you going to sit there and take it?" "When are you going to stand up and fight back?" "Take back your planet!" Etc. Yeah… not helpful.

Many people say to "get mad". Really? So, like, go outside and stomp my feet on the cement? I'm pretty sure that would only result in my neighbors looking at me funny… and maybe calling their kids back into the house. Stand up and say "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore?" Ok, did it. Oh look, the world is all better now! Oh wait... no it isn't. Everything's still the same.

So what then? Boycott the media? Already done it. I stopped listening to the radio, watching the news, etc. for about a decade. Has not seemed to make any difference whatsoever. I've been boycotting flying ever since they introduced "enhanced patdowns". Look at what a difference it made! Not.

Go off the grid? Stock up on food and ammo? Right, because satellites and drones don't exist. Also, plenty of people have already done that and again, hasn't made any difference in the grand scheme of things. The Elite's agenda is still chugging along just fine. Sure, you might be safe in the woods... for now. But we've all seen Agenda 21.

So… what are we supposed to be doing? When you say "How long are you going to take it?" What exactly does NOT taking it entail?

I think mass petitions.

Online or written. Nothing gets done if you dont shout lough enough and stand together.

The gov a huge amount more control over us than 10, 20, 30 years ago. Also there are LOADS more people involved in changing policy's in the governments than there ever was, which is only slowing down the whole process, more people arguing.

What percentage of an entire population really cares about the same thing and agree? Sadly not enough because we all have our little tweaks. Lets say you all want to change somthing thats not working, you are still going to face random percentages that want slightly different things about what we need to change up.

X doesnt work! we all hate it! What should we do about it? We want plan Y, We like plan X, WE like plan Z. We as nations vote ONCE for many years of term with few options available. Its the electronic age, we need to be voting every 3 months on specific topics not just WHO we want for years on end. Many brains are better than few. Also if the party you wanted doesnt get in, you have to just suck it up for the years till the next vote and trust that the decisions those few make in the mean time is decent, which if it wasnt your party in the first place means you just have to sit wait and put up with it.

Major things like going to WAR should be made by a general election process when ever its needed. NSA using private data, mobile phone tracking, if theres a huge hoopla for months, its obviously serious and should involve the people.

Sorry i know ive gone over a few things a few times in this post, please bare me its been a long day.

We have been doing things the same way for hundreds of years and its been a steady slide into khaos. So change the method.

Wow that was a long post, well suck it, this is the rant forum

Start with little, simple things. Avoid the MSM...or at least view it with a skeptical mind. Research the hell out of candidates. use the Net to it's fullest. And then...get involved. Locally - start with your own backyard and work outwards. Run for a local office, even if it's only the local school board. Start a blog. Heck, go old school and start an underground paper. get hold of any good books on activism. Find local groups. Vote. Organize and campaign. Start a letter writing campaign. Write a book. There's a plethora of things one can do. The best part? Things can change...but it requires dedication, effort and sometimes, compromise. It can be done. If you need further ideas, feel free to message me.

Also i find its sad how ironic the term intelligence agency is when can be so stupid and piss everyone off, dont they know what they are doing, are THEY that powerless, arrogant and blind?!!?!?

With all their resources, paid for by the people, they sure are stupid.

Do you think law enforcement, politicians, prime minister/president, NSA, secret service, army, navy, airforce etc get a free pass and thats why they are okay with it?

I have to agree with much of what you say. It all seems like talk, talk, talk... Some people, who are not in North America are attempting change. It is very frustrating for me. I feel as if we are waiting for the hammer to fall... many of the people are waiting for the US revolution to take place, waiting for the many to kill each other off. Then there are us who have awakened, not just to what is happening but to a much bigger picture.

The bigger picture truly has a peaceful world, where we all work together. Meanwhile we watch the game get played, and we are pawns, or spectators of this game. I have so many ideas, but I can only do what is in my world right now. I do my best to help others, giving away food to others (which I do) , getting rid of the stuff.. stuff.. stuff.. it gets me no where in life to have stuff. I am still clearing house.

When it comes to the monies of the world, and the people with the monies, who among the powerful and rich would not give all they have for a slice of bread? The absolute worse of it for me is watching others suffer needlessly and having no understanding why. Watching the ill, disabled, elders, children die and suffer ( in our country and others ) because there are people on the planet that think they deserve their 80 billion dollars... but I do not think they deserve it at all, if they can stop all, or a big part of what is going on. Watching people die, when you can help, is no different than being an accessory in murder.

My opinion.

Sometimes, I imagine America as a place that holds massive pie throwing events. The politicians know you'll take it, and I picture this, but I'm not sure why I laugh about it.

Why can't they take anything out of Ukraines playbook? Sure beats sitting. And taking it to the face.

Yeah, occasionally something will pop up on Facebook about other countries, like how somewhere (I forgot where) the community plans ahead of time which vegetables each person is going to grow, and then they all trade with each other. Now that sounds GREAT in theory, but I look around at American society around me and think "how in the hell…" you know? Where to even begin? I don't even know the first thing about growing my own food. I don't personally know anyone irl who does. Well maybe one person, but you catch my drift here?

Besides that, Good luck getting most of us to even eat those vegetables. Nature doesn't make a bacon & ranch flavored green bean.

Many of us are hopelessly, psychologically and emotionally addicted to this way of life (keeping up with several tv programs, reacting to the news, gossiping about whatever we're told to gossip about (like Miley Cyrus, gay marriage, etc.) eating processed crap, stressing over bills, etc.) that to even suggest another way would just invite scoffing. The concept of getting back to nature is increasingly foreign. In fact, I would go so far as to say that an increasing number of people don't even recognize nature when they see it (I'm talking about all the synthetic substitutes that closely resemble natural food).

Why? Because we've been trained to believe that it's our right to enjoy this way of life, and our job to defend it. Brainwashing, pure and simple. If you watch commercials that push the message "fast food is a "treat" for you and your family" every 4 minutes for however many hours you watch television, every single day, year after year... you're gonna start to believe it. If you let yourself get told over and over again that the people on the television are better than you, and that you should let your children look up to them, you're going to be upset when Miley Cyrus sticks her butt in the air and wags her tongue.

We are SO DEEP into this brainwashing program plan thing whatever... and it's SO massive, that I can't begin to conceive how to go about fixing this.

I think you brought up a great point. People awaken, and then what? You can expose this, you can expose that, but how do you really solve it and not take it anymore? Take a big step back and look at it this way: what is the actual purpose of our existence? Why do we exist? What should be the natural state of man, a natural way of life designed for human beings regardless whether there are a bunch of psychopaths out there. The answers to these questions can only come from the Creator who brought the universe into the existence with a Divine Will. Logically, there is no other truth that transcends God's truth.

I'm a Muslim myself. Now before you picture planes into buildings or whatever knee jerk reaction that words like ''God, Islam, Muslim'' may create, bear with me and process this stuff....

Islam simply means ''Submission to God's will''. A ''Muslim'' is one who submits to God's will. You see, everything in the universe has a certain law that it follows. The way how the sun and the moon follow their orbits in coordination and the countless mechanisms that make life on earth possible, all of this is a product of God dictating laws to each entity. So for example, bees have been programmed to collect pollen and to make honey. This is how God programmed them:

(Surat an-Nahl (The Bee), 68-69) "And your Lord taught the honey bee to build its cells in hills, on trees, and in (men's) habitations; Then to eat of all the produce (of the earth), and find with skill the spacious paths of its Lord: there issues from within their bodies a drink of varying colours, wherein is healing for men: verily in this is a Sign for those who give thought.

So what about us? We as human beings have been given free choice. So the idea is to give back the free choice that we have been given, and to do what God commands us to do. For our own good. This is basically what all the Prophets of God taught, from Adam all the way to the final messenger, Mohammed (peace be upon him).

Have a look at this. :

1. LUCIFERIAN SCUMBAGS! If you are awake, then you probably know that the world leaders today are into satanism. They sell their souls and worship satan and the demons for fame and power. The scumbags sacrifice babies to please their dark lord. So with all the occult garbage that the elite are into, have you ever asked yourself, what the truth is about God? After all, God has been warning mankind about satan and his deceptions. You should know that the luciferians hate God. What does that tell you? Perhaps God is the Truth after all, ey? It is to the Creator that we should turn to, and this is what Islam is about. To worship the Creator alone, to do good, and to know that there will be a Day when all of us will be judged for our actions. A sense of accountability. This is what we all need, not only the lunatics who are in power.

2. RELIGIOUS CONFUSION! You have Jews, Christians and Muslims all claiming that they follow the true way. Which one is right? Islam's position is that there is only the Creator, Allah. You can call Him whatever you like, but it is about the nature of God. It's about the Abrahamic god who does not have a physical image, and who does not enter into His own creation. All prophets from Adam to Mohammed (peace be upon them all) taught this same thing about God. They also taught to submit one's will to Him. This is exactly what the word ISLAM means. It means ''Submission to God's will.'' Abrahamic monotheism and following the law of God. This is the 1 Truth since day

3. THE TRUTH ABOUT JESUS! Once again, confusion. Who was he? What was his nature? Was he God, the son of God? Islam teaches that he was 100% human, 100% prophet. A servant of Almighty God who was sent to a specific nation, the lost sheep of Israel. All God did was utter a single word, a single command: BE! And he was. It was a miracle creation. And he was not sent to die for anyone, but to be a teacher, an example. When he was threatened, God intervened and saved him. He will return to defeat the antichrist.

4. WHO TO FOLLOW NOW? The media matrix presents us with these characters that we are supposed to follow: movie actors, pop artists, models... Why should we be following these fake people solely because they can cry on command or sing high notes? Even in the truth movement, you have these figures who are treated as gods. And all they do is read books and repeat what they hear...... Throughout time, God has sent to us prophets as examples for us. These were outstanding men with high standards of character and the uncompromising will to follow the truth, no matter the odds. The Final Messenger is Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him), who by the Grace of God, transformed his people who were into idolatry and injustice, to a powerful nation of God with a Law. God commands him to say in the Quran:

(Quran 3:31) Say(to them o Mohammed): If you indeed love God, then follow me. Then God will love you and forgive you for your sins, for God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

This is the model that Muslims follow, an amazing individual who spent his whole life remembering God in everything that he did, and who had such a pure character and behaviour towards others. EVERYTHING that he did in his lifehas been preserved for all of us to see.

5. ECONOMIC PROBLEMS! If you look at the economic troubles we are facing, one of the factors causing this, is the use of usury. The FED prints money and that money has to be paid back with usury. Where does it come from? This comes down to slavery, just like third world countries are up to their necks in debt and they get owned by bankers/. Islam forbids usury, and has its own economic model that promotes equality and guaranteees basic needs for everyone. Human needs come first. With all the resources that we have in the world, we should be able to provide everyone with what they need. From the poor living in the west, to the starving in Africa.

6. POVERTY! One of the fundamental practices in Islam is to give 2.5% of one's saved income to the poor and needy. If your wealth is below a certain amount, then you don't have to give that charity, but you then are on the recieving end.

7. OVERSEXUALIZATION! We look around in society today, and we see excessive oversexualization. In commercials, movies, and especially porn is damaging to our youth. Marriage is very much encouraged instead of the free promiscuity that leads to sexual diseases, divorces, and even many times murder. Islam recommends modest dress code for women, but also teaches men not to engage in sexual misconduct. Marriage is the way to go.

8. DRUGS/ALCOHOL! If the world can summon such powers to raise up hell with the new world order, don't you think they are able to eradicate the drug problem? But no, the elite make a profit from it. As with alcohol. Look at the widespread rampage it causes, but hey, it's profitable to them, so let us all simmer in our own hells. Islam's solution first of all begins with the DEMAND for drugs. The purpose of why we are here is to worship God. This is how we attain true happiness, with spiritual fulfillment. Not by drugs and alcohol. At the next level, all the sources of drugs (crops) must be dealt with, and people should be given an alternative means of substinence.

9. RABID INDIVIDUALISM! What do you do when people don't give a damn about anyone but themselves? This is based on a selfish worldview that thrives on self interest. Profit. Besides what Islam teaches about righteousess and a great reward for those who do right in the hereafter, Islam has mechanisms to support this. Fasting. Once you go without food or drink for a period of time, you become humble, grateful for what you have. Your heart softens and you will become more willing to help your fellow man.

10. THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH ABOUT OUR ENEMIES As truthers, it is our job to inform and enlighten people about the evil forces in our world. Islam is an all inclusive package. God has informed us about the jinn, or as you may refer to them, the annunaki. The evil ones among them, are the demons, the ones that follow satan, who is also a jinn. God commanded satan to bow to Adam (pbuh) when he was commanded, and satan refused. He then vowed to wage war on us because of his jelousy and spite(he was once a righteous servant of God). We also know about the antichrist that the illuminati are expecting. We know this by what Mohammed (pbuh) said about him, in a crystal clear way. Not by nebulous texts (book of revelation) that can be interpreted differently by anyone. The absolute truth about our enemies (satan, demons, and the antichrist), can only come from the Creator Himself.

My point, is that it is not about resisting the NWO initially, but submitting our wills voluntarily to the Will of the Creator. Then everything falls into place as that should be our natural state. You see what I am saying?

I made a documentary called ISLAMICA on Youtube. I recommend you check it out.

Well, I wasn't planning on personalizing it too much (because I didn't want to alienate people), but since you brought up being a Muslim, I will say that I am eclectic. I enjoy studying religion & philosophy. I love God and do my best to hear him in a sea of confusion. Aside from this, I imagine that there would be stuff that we would disagree on. I personally have no problem with that, but I worry about offending others.

Lots of people follow many different beliefs, and I believe this comes from a variety of things, such as environment or personal experience. For example, Luciferians. If you know about them, I'm guessing you know about the 48 laws of power?

My personal philosophy/morality is rooted in two things: compassion and freedom. I have 3 rules that I go by: 1, everyone in the world is suffering, and I should remember this when interacting with them. 2. I can't control other people, only myself. And 3, I should strive to spread love.

I feel like the way I choose to behave is in direct defiance with Nature. When I look at how the Earth works, I do see "law of the jungle", "survival of the fittest", etc. The strong and aggressive climb to the top and rule over the weak and the passive. I see it in our social structure and I see it in Nature herself. The strong/fit survive, the weak are lunch. This is greatly reflected in Luciferian philosophy, particularly the 48 laws of power. So I can understand why they think the way they do, even though I choose not to follow it myself.

Ugh, don't get me started on pop culture, lol! That's kind of a soapbox of mine!

Well ok, here I go. I believe that extreme hedonism has a lot to do with a) why so many are losing their empathy towards one another, which in turn leads to b) why so many people are so depressed. We are not built to be so selfish and to constantly consume, consume, consume! We are turning into what I call an input/input society, rather than an input/output one. What I mean by that is that the human mind needs to be able to both process the information it has received, as well as use it to be creative. But in our society we are constantly bombarded with distractions 24/7; and unless you go against the grain and put time aside to do the processing/output, the default is ever-ending input.

Many aspects of pop culture bugs me. I don't like the oversexualization myself. People say "if you don't like it, change the channel". Lol, yeah right. I'd like to see under what circumstances one can avoid pop culture- just the music alone. No more trips to the grocery store for starters. No more stops at the gas station, eating out at fast food restaraunts, doctor's visits, etc. Hell I heard sexual-themed pop songs while I was at the local Water Park. Sometimes I wonder how long it will be before they install a stereo system at the Nature Walk.

So my problem isn't that is exists, my problem is that I can't choose to not be exposed to it. That's impeding on my personal freedom.

Back to hedonism leading to lack of empathy, what I'm observing is an increasing amount of misery in people. Also back to the 48 laws of power (which I believe are being promoted through our pop culture), people often seem to believe that the only way to alleviate their own suffering is to take it out on someone else. Forgiveness, mercy, kindness are dirty words to so many people I see online.

For example, I visit a video game website because that's one of my hobbies. I enjoy it, and sometimes want to share my enthusiasm with others who also enjoy it. But I swear you'd think these people absolutely DESPISED the hobby, the way they talk about it. Nothing but complaints, whines, demands, and insults. (And for the record, this is not just one gaming website, this is pretty much everywhere).

I'm like "hey, let's rejoice in our wonderful hobby made possible by amazing technology!" and they act like it's a sin. They respond "how can you have such low standards? You're the problem with the gaming industry! People like you just enjoying anything they put out! We demand better!!"

The very concept of being thankful and happy seems foreign to them.

And it's not just the video game community. One of the few shows I watch is Supernatural. I visit the Supernatural forum, for the same purpose. There is so much venom there that sometimes it's hard to read. People literally say "I can't believe they took this character in this direction. God I hate this show!". I'm like "Then why watch it???"

It's like being negative has turned into a noble characteristic.

Well, stop with the negative posts.

I think discussing the problems and suggesting solutions is constructive. Just merely pointing out the problems and advocating a vague action like you say is not very constructive.

People feel frustrated because they think the problem is obvious and solution is everyone uniting. Uniting seems like the solution but the solution will be the goal of uniting not just because they agree there is a problem. The problem isn't even agreed and the solutions voiced certainly are not. Just seeing the problem doesn't fix it.

Difference between anger as sadness. I tried to evoke change, but people didn't like it so they lied about me and sent me to the gutter.

So now I don't even have the capacity to be angry, just devastated with a soul filled to the brim with tears.

What we do is form alliances with those who are very different from ourselves yet are adversely affected by the same issues. Police are trained in investigation, but they can't speak anywhere near as openly as us. Military are trained to use force, but again they can't easily speak out. We can say whatever we want, the consequences are limited to being harassed or murdered. We can't be disciplined because we have no contract that allows for disciplinary action. We can just argue back with any delusional fool who attempts to discipline us. We can't have our promotion blocked or our wages reduced. We have the freedom to express ourselves without facing the consequences that keep so many Police and Military silent.

The British Police protested en-masse on the 10th of May 2012.
Before the next big Union protest the chairman of the Police Federation said, "You will see my officers walking alongside you. I want you to know they are marching with you." Then he was murdered. One of his colleagues said... "He died doing his duty, fighting the government".

The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers marched on parliament for the first time since Cromwell.

"On the plus side, with my conversations with the lads, they have woken up to the fact that our government is the REAL enemy..." - See more at:

Alliances is what we do. Our part is to tell the censors where to shove their censorship.

Wow OP, what did you do, crawl in my head and read my thoughts? [smiles]
I hear you and you know what??..... At my age now, sometimes its just enough to keep me going to log on here and see the postings and realize that I am not alone.
Until we have an Arab Spring type awakening in this country, there really isn't much I individually can do except talk to people and post comments when I can.
I went through the young age stage of protesting and doing all that.
Now I keep to my own and family. Spread the word when I can and try my best to not feel like a stump when I cant and all the while hoping the younger generations will take it back but I dont see that happening here because they are not to the point of nothing to lose. We are still a spoiled nation. Until that rug gets yanked, I can't see much changing.

Someone told me a long while can't change an evil system. But you can change one person at a time.
Don't know if you are a christian or not, but the story sticks with me that Jesus didn't try to change Rome, just at a time.
Kinda like pyramid selling. I found that to be more effective than being a whistleblower.

Chin up.
