We often bandy about the term "deny ignorance" here on ATS, and with good reason.
We know that without enlightened, wise, informed and deprogrammed people, nations, and by extension the globe, will always be controlled by those who
are running the program, by those who can skew the view of the unwary, motivate people around non-issues, motivate people against one another, drive
wedges between voting blocs and decrease the unity with which we face that which is to come. We are essentially, easier to control this way.
Our brothers and sisters across the pond in the United States, are living in an era of extreme division, driven by an expensively maintained program
of deliberate acts, obfuscations, lies and deceits, put together by persons rich and powerful the world over. By this method they have been separated
from their rights, little by little. By this method they have been rendered powerless, by parties unwilling to allow non-narrative candidates to run
for office, despite overwhelming public support. By this method over successive decades, they have been coerced into paying for illegal wars and the
destitution of entire regions of the globe, death on an industrial scale since before the Reagan era, and following on from that.
Our members here know that, even those who staunchly stand beside either one of the current batch of cretins running for office, know this to be
absolutely accurate, regardless of the precise details of who may be responsible.
But the vast majority of people in the US do not have access to the same information that our members have, do not have access to the truth, because
they are not being driven to find that truth. They are shown the flashing banners, they see the ticker tape, they hear the National Anthem of the
United States of America, and without relent or question, do what their programmers demand of them, without being aware of the programming itself in
I do not think it is fair to throw up ones hands at the people of a nation so UTTERLY controlled as those of the United States, when they make
choices that boggle the mind. This is, one must remember, a nation whose most heroic and selfless are called traitors, whose least noble and wise are
called heroes, and whose most corrupt are called leaders. While people like Edward Snowden are in exile and under threat of arrest if they return
home, and while people like Trump and Clinton are in line for the presidency, the moral centre of the nation has to be considered a contested zone, an
area which is being influenced not by the pure concepts of justice, freedom, liberty, but by concerns far less noble.
In a nation where right is considered wrong, where injustice is stock in trade, where people are fooled into extending their wrists that they might
be shackled to the abusive corporate structures which are bleeding their communities dry, overpaying those who need for nothing, and underpaying those
who can barely afford to accommodate themselves, there can be no doubt that the control program being run against the people is absolutely effective.
It has rendered education so poor as to allow even geniuses to have the wool over their eyes, and for those not gifted with heights of intellect to
bumble about in total ignorance, to never even question the rod at their backs, the whip across their shoulders, the boot on their necks.
This is not a nation whose people, en masse, can be held responsible for the actions of their leaders, or even for electing worthy leadership. They
are not operating in their own minds, but following a program, and until the machine is smashed from within and without, that program will continue to
run. There will be anomalies within, as there always are, as you are SLAYER69, as all our American members (with very limited exceptions) are. But for
the vast majority, all there is in their lives, is their place within the program, the unseen hand at their backs, the need to bow to a pressure from
an invisible source, to act, feel, and vote a certain way.
These people are not acting of their own minds, because the circumstances they are in denies them reason. Throw up your hands at the program, not the
components of the machine which runs it.
