I often say that darker days are here in that there seem to be a general increase in symptoms such as anxiety, tension and fear--due to possibly, this dark era, which seemingly has no end--and when is it
going to end? When will things get better again? When will the dark era end--and when will this political charade world wide come to an end---and is it that which is affecting people? Or is it because each of us has to function in a world, which, seemingly is not as it is supposed to be? Seems to be there is some sort
of chaos going on--in life, in the world, which, seems to be spinning around faster than ever it has done
and maybe we have made it that way because of this fast pace of life that we have been leading, and
has it really gotten us anywhere at all? We, maybe have made it that way, and is the earth now rebelling because we think we are in control? Were we ever? How have we been infected--chem trails, HAARP, GMO's?
or are we feeling uneasy, because, perhaps, we are feeling "evil" just around the corner, which has reared its ugly head? Maybe, the world is the way it is because history has somehow taken the wrong course. The course of history perhaps, moved to the left, and not the right way, at all--how are people feeling? This constant feeling of being "off balance" perhaps we are moving into a new era, where all will be balanced again--one thing I do realize is that things are not normal and happy as they used to be--lots of anger, lots of confusion, lots to moan about--how many think that these are, indeed, dark days and can we make the light shine again?
And if a waiting game is on--how do we cope with the stress of it all--how many want the dark era of fear to be over? or will it ever be over--perhaps, at the end of the day there always will be that constant struggle to carry on--in spite of the consequences....all the best...

Hmmmm it seems dark forces are slowly affecting the entire world, from North Korea threatening all out war to Al Qaeda beheading Christians in Syria is it setting the stage for a dark dystopian future for humanity. I wonder then who will be the Chosen One that will save us from this darkness.

Please consider the premise that some --but not all conspiracies are true. If you can accept that basic premise there is potential to shed a great deal of abstract fear.

Spend some time making a ranked list of conspiracy memes based on hard evidence. Discard the lower 50% percentile from your daily activities.

You might find that the era of fear can instead, be the era of liberation.

I agree with the OP but the bigger concern is the NWO Rothschild central banking scheme, the West and its warmongering allies and the introduction of an ever growing militarized police state in the US and other "free" countries.

History has been manipulated since the begining. A dark hand has lied, misinformed and misled for a time. If the Tzolkin is correct, then the 13 heavens (bond Heaven-Earth) has yet to happen. When this day occcurs, the cabal will fall on there faces.

Things are going to have to get a lot worse before they can get better.

The people like you and me that have electricity, computers, food, clean water...we're the furthest away from how bad it's getting. We're in the top 10% of the industrial elite compared to the rest of the billions of people living in poverty. When everyone of us begins to feel it, change will happen.

The question is, will it be positive change?

There has actually been a decrease in anxiety in the world compared to past times in history. People now are more apathetic to things going on in the world and this is in stark contrast to previous times.

The Cold War was a prime example with everyone living in fear that we were only minutes away from nuclear annihilation at any given moment.

The Red Scare with everyone wondering if their neighbor was a communist. We could go all throughout history and list things like this but I think you get the point. Out in the general public, away from conspiracy boards, there is not an underlying fear of anything actually.

As long as people have their cell phones and their reality tv to watch at night they are reasonably content.

The world is much brighter IMO than it was in the 70s and 80s (I'm too younger to remember the 60s) when the threat of real nuclear war loomed over us. And, here in Britain, we were being blown up by terrorists whilst walking in the park, commuting to work, Christmas shopping or attending Remembrance Sunday services .....

Maybe some parts of the world are darker, but here in the West it's never, in my lifetime, been so good.

In the early 40's our country was actually attacked by a foreign power and we went to war and although not many of us think about what that was like now, many people had doubts that we could actually beat the Nazi's.

Europe had fallen, Britain was all but destroyed, and Russia was on the run. It was only us left in all actuality and those were very grim days if you ever go and look at some of the old editorials in various papers.

There is also the industrial revolution which scared many people. Here is an old write up about electricity being introduced into society and how it was producing fear among many parts of the nation:

ELECTRIFIED PORTSMOUTH, NH BRIGHT IDEA IN 1900?
JANUARY 1900
A Reporter's Notebook


Electric, electric, electric! The way people bandy that word about nowadays, you'd think electricity is the new salvation of mankind. That attitude is particularly "on the wire" this week as the Old Town by the Sea hurtles relentlessly from the comfortably familiar 19th century into the unknown landscape of the 20th.

This writer, however, urges caution as we contemplate the coming Electric Age, admonishing readers not to entertain Utopian flights of fancy. Certainly this modern miracle has its usefulness, but for every labor-saving benefit, electricity brings us -- something, we fear, is lost in the trade.

But to see the future, a local pundit informs me, one need only walk down Water Street at night where the incandescent glow of electrical lights beckon hapless sailors from across the Piscataqua to visit houses of adult entertainment. Vice and corruption, it seems, have deep pockets. Electricity is the new Jezebel, seducing our young men into the arms of immorality.

Who will you chose to save you from darkness, who can you chose other than yourself?

Someone will bring a message and they already have many times, its up to the individual to save them selves from the darkness in their hearts and darkness they perceive corrupting the world around them.


You are the chosen one, the one reading these words.

Positive to those that have not,


Negative to those that have.

If there is a universal unity in humanity to be found then duality will cease and we will no longer understand positive or negative, love or fear.

That is a change that cannot be comprehended in the state we are in at the moment.

The Cold War was a prime example with everyone living in fear that we were only minutes away from nuclear annihilation at any given moment.


And this trick has been used again in recent times with a number of countries from the "axis of evil" .

Look at the threats of nuclear war coming from the Korean peninsula the last 2 years, might not be as full on as what was done in 60s-80s but still follows the same suit.




The Red Scare with everyone wondering if their neighbor was a communist.


The terrorist scare where most western governments have hot lines where you can ring and point out neighbors you have suspicions about. sound very similar to the red scare.

Yes there are certain similarities in content but not in degree. People worrying that Korea may set off a nuke somewhere in Asia is nowhere compared to the threat of global annihilation that everyone feared. It was also used to great effect during a presidential campaign and although this ad was only shown once it is considered to be an example of the feeling of dread in the US which made it extremely effective.



As for the terrorists they are still "over there" not your neighbor or family members or school teachers or what have you. Similar but ultimately a very different feeling. The FBI is not going through Hollywood actors and claiming some of them are terrorists.

I suppose change in and of itself is neither positive or negative, it simply is change. Humans judge change based on our circumstances. As you said, it might be positive for some, negative for others.

I'm a firm believer that this top heavy accumulation of wealth has to topple in order for everyone to float a little higher. The rich can only walk on the backs of the poor before their backs break.

Bu a nuke going of in today's era would most likely mean such with so much tension between everyone.

But I agree, before it was the two had the power to destroy all, now its a rogue nation that will perform an act which in turn will open the doors for any past grudges to be resolved in the confusion of whats happening.

"over there"?

Terrorists can be anywhere can they not, where is over there?

If they are over there where ever that is why is a terrorist watch hotline in Australia and Great Brittan I believe also has one?

When I said, "over there" is was meant to be as a general perception, not an actual fact. We don't generally walk into our local grocery store with the thought of our cashier being a terrorist but during the Red Scare little things like that were exactly what people thought about.

"hmmmm, he is packing my groceries funny, I wonder if its because he is a communist...", that's how bad the fear was during that decade roughly.

Capitalism leads to plutocracy as communism leads to oligarchy.

What threats?

You really think N Korean is as big a threat today as the Warsaw Pact was in the 80s?





The Red Scare with everyone wondering if their neighbor was a communist.

The terrorist scare today is just that. A scare. In the 70s and 80s it was reality for us. And many hundreds of innocent civilians died because they went for a walk in the park, or shopping, or to work, or a for drink in the pub ...... Murders paid for by money from the USA, btw - though that's not the issue.

I take it you are talking about IRA and the issues in the UK?

I am comparing the terrorist scare of today to the red scare of the cold war era based on my opinions from a US media perspective, Whether one is more of a threat than the other they seem to follow the same path of instilling fear into the public, thats all.
