If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever.
Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty.
The first thing you need to know about Goldman Sachs is that it's everywhere. The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.
In other words, I don't think America was ever "hijacked" or "corrupted", but rather everything is going according to plan, and corruption is another word for evolution, as is crony capitalism, also called enlightenment.
I have been wondering if there are teachings of Jesus that are concealed to the masses that were only given to initiates, and that are still given today, and in which were instructions of how to govern society, like for example how to create the Roman empire, and why not Goldman Sachs.
Acts 18 KJV
4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.
5 And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit (ed. Had a temporal-lobe siezure), and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.
6 And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean; from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.
7 And he departed thence, and entered into a certain man's house, named Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.
8 And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.
9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision (those lobes again), Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:
10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.

Problems only arise in the mind of the spiritually week.
Ideas are formed both by the devine and the total of all experience in our life.
The only problem comes from Plato's students who refuse to believe in a devine origin of self. The perfect form of man is love and virtue according to Plato and all religious texts.
Aristotle and Nietzsche believed their is no devine law that suggests love and peace have any devine value. Love is subject to man's definition not some devine archetype.
Plato could accept that divine knowledge, supported our understanding of our experiences. Without accepting the devine truth one's own mind would stand against the Holy Spirit within.
I propose this is why Nietzsche went mad.
Attempting to justify things that stand against the Holy Spirt by refusing to believe in the Holy Spirit, is madness.
Plato believed in the Holy Spirit, The light, Devine inspiration. And believed their was a law at work within men that was devine and could not be altered by our perception of it.
To claim that Aristotle's works advanced the understanding of Plato is simply false. Aristotle is a roadblock to understanding Plato not a doorway.
Rumi has nothing but pity and disdain for those who look at the world around and within themselves and do not understand that what they are seeing is a veil over reality. The world is a dream, a prison, a trap, foam thrown up from the ocean, dust kicked up by a passing horse. But it is not what it appears to be. If everything that appears to us were just as it appears, the Prophet, who was endowed with such penetrating vision, both illuminated and illuminating, would never have cried out, "Oh Lord, show us things as they are!" Rumi draws a fundamental distinction between "form" (surat) and "meaning" (ma`na). Form is a thing's outward appearance, meaning its inward and unseen reality.
The insane person has lost contact with the world; he has withdrawn into himself; he cannot experience reality, either physical or human reality as it is, but only as formed and determined by his own inner processes.
A gramophone record, the musical idea, the written notes, and the sound-waves, all stand to one another in the same internal relation of depicting that holds between language and the world.
