I was recently watching the secret, and it gave me a thought. I realize that many people probably take issue with the things espoused in that movie,
but I think that it has some merit. I really do believe in our creative power and that the world , or astral light, patterns itself according to the
image we impress upon it. The thought that this gave me is that all of us here on ATS spending so much time and energy contemplating TPTB taking
controll, instituting a slave/police state, talking about how and when they would do it, could be helping to manifest this reality.
Even if you don't believe in the power of thought, or anything besides tangible reality. I can still prove the inherent worthless of such
speculation and conversation, using only natural arguments. The only possible benefit of such conversation is thinking of strategies to defend
against any power play "they" could make. But, by discussing this strategy in an open forum, your telling your perceived enemy what you would do in
that case, giving them time to plan around that.
In keeping with this insight I would like to propose solutions to this, as pointing out the problem is unhelpful. Perhaps anytime we would like to
talk about a potential problem, we should point out potential solutions. For example I was thinking about how banking (usury) is inherently a scam,
because over time more and more of the overall wealth is concentrated into the hands of the bankers. But this thought, or issue can be nullified when
we realize the money has no inherent value, and if someone were to try to take advantage of their disproportionate wealth do to this scam (using the
money in your hands to shift more money into your hands), we can just not recognize the buying power of said money.
Of course if the bankers who have accumulated mass wealth through these means were to buy up material assets, and resources, before they drained
liquidity from the system, then they would have real wealth, with which they could feed, and equip armies to protect their assets. Which goes back to
my second point that any strategy can be circumvented. Which is why, imho, it's best to just ignore your perceived adversary (while recognizing the
worthlessness of money) and to live the life you would want to live whether they were standing in your way or not.
