You are right, its unfortunate but what you say is true. The only way something could make a difference is to stand together as one and we are
so fragmented it's not funny. So is there no hope?
There is no hope for the majority of people because they don't envisage hope in the same way you do my friend. Their hope is to run into the
circumstances that will provide them with greater wealth. Through luck, through a social connection, through developing the sort of skills Tony
Robbins is teaching at his seminars, by reading books like 'Think Rich, Grow Rich' or whatever. They don't see any fault with the system as such -
their only criticism would be that they are not getting as big a slice of the pie as they would like. For example they will ask you, "What kind of
car do you drive? Which model, how much you paid for it" etc. But if you say, (as I have done) "and it takes all of those wars in the Middle East to
keep it running." They will shoot you an ugly glance as if you have spoken out of turn or are some sort of trouble-maker or something.
The fact is the majority of people see nothing wrong with war as such and especially now where so many people are avowed skeptics and atheists. Half
of this group believes that organized religion is to blame for all the wars of the past, and the other half believe war or armed conflict is a
naturally inherited biological instinct - the animal defense of territory.
Americans didn't like Jimmy Carter as a president because he was not a kick-ass kind of guy, and for all G.W. Bush's gaffes and folly, he is still
somehow admired, perhaps as a slightly demented warrior chief.
The masses have been taught to admire soldiers, and the war memorials in almost every town and city attest to this, not to mention the parades of old
soldiers bearing a swag of medals. Why? Because they fought and died for our freedom? Really they fought and died to uphold an economy - an economy
that provides each citizen with the hope of becoming rich, especially richer than his neighbour. War represents competition - the ultimate fulfillment
of all sports' training - us against them.
Who is there no hope for? The mothers who proudly see off their sons to the military? Sons who they have taken pains to care for and protect since
they were in diapers? Mothers who believe their sons are doing something patriotic by killing others in orchestrated wars of economy in Iraq and
Afghanistan? Then saying to their friends and neighbours, "Well I was worried he was going to amount to nothing, sitting in his room smoking
"Oh yes, Mrs Jones, you must be proud of how he turned out"
Then when the news comes in that Mrs. Jones' son has been Killed in Action, she will cry for a day or so and then place a photo of him dressed in
full uniform upon her mantelshelf and tell everyone what a hero he was.
It's not TPTB that have to be removed from their positions so much as the conditioning must be removed from the human mind. Humans are taught to
worship the way of the predator and they practice it, and they appoint powerful and cunning predators as their leaders, because although they
acknowledge that there is injustice in the world, they hope that they will be the chosen ones, the ones who will be under the umbrella of the winning
team. That is what the sport is all about in its psychological conditioning.
The key to breaking out of the ever tightening net that is closing around humanity day by day is to form self-sufficient land-based communities.
Living on properties which have a group title and living in a cooperative sense. These communities would not have to be stone-age and could take full
advantage of many aspects of modern technology. They would produce their own water supply (fluoride free), electricity, non-G.M, organic food etc,
build an aesthetically pleasing designed community by appointing artists to the community's board of directors who have equal status to any other
planners or directors.
An evolution of sustainable growth would then emerge from these cells and branch into other similar cells, trading ideas and people with each
But......most people want what they have been conditioned to want on TV and nothing short of a major apocalyptic event is going to shift them from
Soldier - good. Hippy - bad.
