In Star Trek - The Next Generation, there is an episode where an entity named "Ardra" comes back to a planet demanding that they fulfill a thousand-year old contract.

The contract stated that "Ardra", otherwise known as "The Devil" would bring peace and prosperity on this planet for 1000 years, in exchange that the evil entity may take possession and enslave the entire civilization when the time of 1000 years had elapsed.

Arbitrating the dispute between the people and Ardra, the crew of the Enterprise asks the people of the planet how the sweeping changes occurred which brought them peace and prosperity, and whether Ardra was present making those changes directly.


What they found was this:

1) The people reformed their society by changing existing laws to promote equality, peace, and justice.

2) They cleaned up the planet's pollution.

3) They built long-lasting infrastructure, roads, buildings, bridges, and farms.

4) They directed financial resources towards peaceful endeavors rather than profits and warfare.

5) They learned to create machines and systems in society which produced more, with less pollution, and no waste.


When the people revealed this to the arbitrators, Ardra objected and said that they had all done these things via her influence.


Later in the episode, the crew of the Enterprise found a cloaked ship and crew working on the holographic images, magic tricks, and earthquakes which were attributed to be the power of the coming god Ardra.


Once this was found, both sides realized that the people of the planet had actually saved themselves, and that the supposed God was nothing but an opportunist charlatan attempting to enslave their civilization.


So, I ask you... Do we need leaders to corral us into saving the earth? Can we do it ourselves, from the ground up? What changes in our mindset need to occur before we believe that positive changes can happen? And those who stand up claiming to have the people's interest in mind, would we be wise in trusting them?


“The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule.” - H. L. Menken

So, exactly what point are you trying to get across with this?

How does this fit in with the NWO?

Do you think this has any relation to Project Blue Beam?

that was a good one. =)

i also wonder if you had a point or if you were just bringing this to the attention of the ATS'ers as some mind food.

Sounds like science fiction to me


I think dionysius9 is saying that there is no point in relying in the NWO to improve the Earth, we can do it just as well without them.

That was a good episode. Picard with his Vulcan-like logic saved that whole civilization.



The plot of that episode has many similarities to what many people believe may come in 2012, aliens showing up and actively manipulating human civilization.
