There is a terrible irony at play here: knowledge that was once forbidden, is now freely available, yet now that it available, it is largely ignored.
And also, it's ironic that the more and more we come to rely and be accustomed to technology, the less and less we understand it as a whole.
Distraction and misdirection are very key to your point. Every iota of information is now available electronicly. Folks are being led to rely on an
infrastructure that has every chance of failing, deliberately or not.
Apparently, past civilizations have learned from previous mistakes and developed their structures along megalithic magnitudes to preserve their
knowledge. It seems the knowledge is too obscure to teach, yet vast speculation, eg disinfo, has been spread. Who do you think that favors? Library of
Alexandria should be the best example. Romans burnt it down. Killed Jesus. Yet learned nothing? Knowledge is power. Who really knows what we have been
One of the crazier things I've read.. People = chattel. Moveable property. You are valued at birth for the going rate and insured as such. Everything
extra is just more gravy. You get a guy who creates lots of wealth, much labor, or creates others who fall into the same cycle without ever knowing
the wiser. Worst case = consumer, no kids, dies old. Best case = investor, "business man", taxpayer, family, property. What falls in the middle is
pretty much most of America. If I were stacking the deck for myself, I would have to do pretty much the same. You can't be too obvious when you
cheat, right? I have read on a couple of fringe sites that everyone is written up for $5m in US at birth, that's why you need to be born in a
hospital. I still find that hard to believe, yet I haven't ever been surprised. (pretty much why I indulge in these theories)
Why should us pleebs be divided like we are? Racism, like class, race, man or woman, or sexual orientation, is totally contrived to keep the
multitudes off balance. Its just an easy way to get everyone distracted by the hating. Real people in this world don't hijack your culture of belief.
It happens because people are told that it does happen. In reality, people get along just fine with or without labels attached.
I would have to say that the 99% thing is pretty much useless now. The real 99 should be about going home every night, play with your family, have
good supper, talk about meaningful things, inspire hope, and sleep well at night. WE simply need to make a living wage and not be limited by
regulations that hurt our people.
I finish this by alluding to the fact that our system of rule is more appropiately fascist. Corporatacracy, or Corporate Oligarchy may be close.
Democracy is lagging far behind the reality of today. The only way mob rules is when the walls tumble down. The rules have been silently rewritten
behind our backs and in front of our faces. It really can't be countered, because normal people do not have a year to waste at picking apart an act,
bill, hr, sr, all the joint resolutions, attachments, all the other bs that they throw out there. These pieces of paper have words that mean much
different than what your dictionary will tell you. W described a piece of paper once... He forgot that he was supposed to act all bumpkin like. Paper
has too much power. Just look at religious text.
