A lot of people in the Western world are 'waking' up, you only have to look at the numbers of protestors at the NATO summit in Chicago to see the extent of people who are beginning to question the world and who runs it. Veterans giving away military medals in protest of the Iraq and Afghan wars couldn't be a stronger symbol of opposing the NWO and the murder and suffering it imposes around the world.

We can condemn NATO for bombing countries, we can argue these 'humanitarian' wars are paving a way for oil contracts, we can say how evil the 'elites' are, those who profit from war and fund the propaganda machines to convince us these wars are helping people in order to justify waging them. We can see the truth, and talk about it, but are we prepared to act on this knowledge?

We drive cars to get to work, we rely on cars for transport. The truth we must acknowledge is that we are married to this system. The very oil contracts being set up through murder and exploitation in foreign lands gives us the petrol that drives our cars. People in Britain pay the highest tax on petrol in the world, and we happily pay it. Is this not hypocrisy?

Our very way of life is built on the expolitation of others, wars to make way for oil contracts, slave labour in clothing factories, the plunder of Africa for materials, and yet we all buy into this system. It's like cringing at the slaughter of pigs then eating a bacon sandwich hours later. Or drinking a pint of milk despite the horrendous suffering dairy cows have to endure in their lifetime. It's 'easier' to forget and put the blinkers of ignorance back on once we sign off the internet.

I'm guilty of it too, I'm sitting in a comfy chair typing this whilst people are dying around the world of starvation, Africa is the richest continent in the world, yet we keep the people divided and killing each other, we fund dictators to supress the people from getting the resources that are theirs. Our comfortable life is built on the starvation and killing of millions of people every year.

The only way the world can ever change for the better is if people stop buying into the system. But we are too comfortable? Not many people will like this, and I actually believe many people remain ignorant to the truths because deep down they know their way of life is built on this awful system.

I'm not prepared to give up my job to make a change, because I need to eat. We can hate this system as much as we like but we rely on it to survive. So even with people 'waking' up, what could we possibly do? The entire world is built on this model of exploitation, we rely so heavily on it, what could the possible alternatives be?

If the world is ever to change, it would come at great sacrifice for people in the West, our comfortable lives are built on the current model. People may disagree and say our way of life is bad, but as I've argued many times, we are free to travel, go the beach, go the cinema, walk the dog, go on the internet, say what we want, do what we want within the rules of society. Yes, we live under rules and pay taxes, but again, what is the alternative? Imagine society with no law of the land, no hospitals or police, no street lights, no schools, it would be chaos. Again, we rely on our controllers.

Personally, when I step back and look at the sheer level of control, how ignorant the masses are to some of the realities, the exploitation and suffering around the world, the consumerist based society of the west, increasingly brainwashing education, military power that defends the elites, the entire world is under their control, could humans be so dedicated to a cause at this level or is something else at work? It sounds like a ridiculous notion but some of the elites have more than enough money to ever need more, if it is no longer about money but pure control, that makes me feel it is something outside of human capability. The dedication to the cause of total control over the ENTIRE planet, it's almost as though humans are pawns in this game.

Got a bit off track there
, my main question is, are we prepared as a society to go against the NWO, or are we too comfortable and reliant on the system? Even if we wanted to make a difference, could we? Given the sheer progression of TPTB in regards to total control, could we even make a difference if we adopted a strategy of non compliance?

I've made up my mind long ago, That we went to a materialistic world very quick, and until we can learn to be self reliant and don't need the distraction tools the government puts out there for us...I'm willing to bet that around the election time a new electronics gadget will be announced as the must have app/gadget.

I for one do not need the government in my life as much as they would like to, To take down the powers that be, we need to stop needing the crap we buy from them.

And yes for now a par take in the material things, but would lay them down in an instant.

If we're all going to live in the same spot, jam packed into cities, then yea there needs to be some kind of system.
If the entire land on earth was shared though, we'd all live comfortably.
The problem is that some land is better than others, which one would you want?
Because maybe your land is not fertile enough, you'd want me to share mine.
But maybe I don't want to share it with you, because I have too many people sharing it with me already.
Then starts the tension, and, a plan to attack and take the others land.

Fast forward 12,000 years of feudal tension and we have the current situation.

I knew this post had to contain bacon, it's good.

It's time for global revolution in my opinion.. We need to wake up more people to what's going on around them. Throw out TPTB and establish a new better system, my idea is meritocracy... every system will have flaws, but it's better than the current system, and all problems could eventually be worked out. The Utopian society is inevitable, now is the time to start though. The first step is to overthrow TPTB. We will either achieve Utopia, or humanity will die out from mass war.. Political reform, religious reform, educational reform. Check out my ideas for meritocracy here and tell me what you think: www.abovetopsecret.com...
Our advancement as a species can not continue until we change the current society to something far better.. It will take a lot of work, but it is the most noble cause in my opinion. What better thing to fight for then the advancement of humanity and Utopia? TPTB are happy as they are, sitting right on top, with no chance of ordinary people reaching their status. Lets show them they're wrong, end the current world order and bring on a new world order.
Its time for change.


EDIT: There is no need to fear a New world order.. it is the current world order you should be afraid of. It is a common misconception that TPTB want to bring in a New world order, nothing could be further from the truth. Why would they want a new order when they have everything going for them in the current order. It it the New World Order they are afraid of, and they should be.

Good points. The NWO from my view also is currently under way, so I take your point it can be seen as the current world order. It is slowly but surely progressing, and I quite firmly believe it is non human forces at work. I mean, we are almost like cattle to the elites- they brainwash us daily, from when you first start school to the media- TV, radio, film, we are constantly being conditioned and formed. All the while we live in ignorance of what is happening around the world.

Sadly, and I aplogise for repeating this over and over, but outside forums like these, the vast majority of people live in total ignorance and simply do not care, they won't even acknowledge the possibility of any form of conspiracy.
