Mon, 21 Jan 2013 21:57:02 GMT If you were born, raised, and lived happily in a cult, would you ever acknowledge, even to yourself, that "it", was a cult?

http://www.opednews.com/articles/The...30121-441.html

It's only a cult for those at the bottom of it, right? - those at the top, feel, think, are convinced, things are just great, yes or no? - I guess you could use Scientology as an example to study.

Absolutely, I can easily envisage the heads of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, etc., dressing exactly like the Pope - you know, wearing the fluorescent nylon sheets, the fish hat, and carrying the big "candy cane"!

Could the case be made that there is no fundamental difference between religious costumes and business suits?!

There was a guy (Greg Hunter: http://usawatchdog.com/) on our radio show last night talking about this.

http://www.nationofchange.org/titani...hip-1342969906

Both he Ellen Brown (author of the article I linked to) say that the big banks are going to get "whacked" by RICO lawsuits from states, municipalities, and class action individuals across the U.S.

RICO statutes allow victims to recover triple damages.

Hunter said, and I agree, that when the LIBOR scandal broke, the U.S. MSM barely indicated that it was news - he indicated that the big banks strongly influence what the MSM emphasizes or de-emphasizes.

I have zero curiosity about banks and finance.

I am certain there is nothing deep involved - just infinite layers of tedious linguistic and legal indirection, in order to make theft as easy as possible (In my opinion, people who are fascinated by all of the arcane financial details, are probably not very smart, but are certainly very greedy - I see the same thing concerning most people with deep interest in the Law.).

But, I do fear and become enraged about the merciless austerity measures that bankers will try to get politicians to impose upon the 99% of people who were not involved in any way, in order to pay for these same bankers' crimes.

And, I do fear and become enraged about the currency being intentionally inflated in order to pay bank lawsuits.

I think that the entire financial system is a total fraud - the Federal Reserve, a group of PRIVATE banks, does whatever it wants, with no legal oversight.

According to Hunter, when judgments (or, do you prefer, "judgements"?) begin being awarded against the big banks as a result of the LIBOR rate fixing, the Federal Reserve will not let the big banks default.

He said that instead, the Federal Reserve will give those banks the money to pay the judgments.

The result will be that once again 99% of the people will end up paying - inflation will go "through the roof".

In other words, the Federal Reserve will give the big banks billions, or even trillions of dollars for free. And that money, is not more than paper. Basically, the plaintiffs will be paid with paper, that will be approximately worthless. But, every penny that an individual owes, will be tracked by the latest technological means, and a debt of just one cent will follow him forever - and the interest on the one cent will also have to be paid.

The entire financial/political system is a "cesspool", the paid-off politicians try to just ignore huge thefts - because, they are funded by the thieves.

Ellen Brown did offer one ray of hope, bank nationalizations - but can you imagine how much damage would have to be done before the politicians who receive the bank cash, would propose and agree to such a measure?

(Inflation doesn't matter if you can always stay ahead of it, right? For instance, if inflation increases by 1000%, that's good if your income simultaneously increases by 10000%, right? I think that's how the thieves do it. I bet many of them become "aroused", thinking about the 99% of the people whose incomes simultaneously increase by 0%.)

For me, I suspect that the article is substantially true, and, I am angry enough to post this before I even finish reading the article.

What is worse for the "puppeteers" of the world than for everyone to know who they are, and exactly what they have done?

Propaganda doesn't always work, correct?

For instance, if someone murders one of my family members and I find out who did it, most likely the perpetrator will not be able to pacify me with his soothing tones and charismatic smile, right?

400 Treaties https://www.thinbasic.com/community/entry.php?38-400-Treaties Fri, 20 Jul 2012 04:17:24 GMT (My opinion.)

"a machine for demolishing limits"

I can't remember ever disagreeing with Chris Hedges (link to article).

http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/10107-chris-hedges-time-to-get-crazy

When the "people" from Western Europe invaded and conquered North America, they made over 400 treaties with the "Indians", and broke every one.

They perpetrated genocide against the indigenous people, men, women, children, babies, and stole (But, I guess theft is not theft, when it is done with the backing of a "legal" document.) their land.

(And, how did Mexico happen to lose the southwestern portion of what is now the United States?)

Incidentally, if I am correct, they originally began referring to the native people as, "Indians", because, these "DF"s thought they were in India.

They were almost successful in making the American buffalo extinct, just for the sake of greed..

I see zero fundamental difference (Do suits and ties soften the infliction of annihilation?) between those savage barbarians of 175 years ago, and those at the tops of the power pyramids today.

Therefore, it is no surprise to me, that today's power brokers fully intend to doom the vast majority of human society to suffering deaths, while glorifying themselves from inside their fortresses of insulated opulent decadence.

And, to me, today's power brokers are yesterday's (also today's?) slave traders, too.

But, on the other hand, dullards never believe doomsayers, correct?

And, "climate change", is cyclical, it has nothing at all to do with man-made combustion, right?

Coincidentally, we happen to be going through a cycle in which it is very hot, and some places get no rain - ever, while others are "drowned" - daily, nothing to worry about though!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By the way, when the power brokers do begin to see their own futures jeopardized due to global warming, watch how they start taxing anything to do with combustion - for instance, driving automobiles.

The vast majority of people had no choice about becoming absolutely dependent upon industrialized society (making the power brokers obscenely wealthy), and, they will have no choice about being financially penalized into destitution for being dependent upon it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One more thing.

Let me know when you can enumerate the fundamental difference between a country and a gang.

What, for instance, besides lack of power, is to prevent me from declaring myself as a sovereign nation, and producing a document giving me the legal authority to take your property?

It's interesting to me, countries always seem to create legal documents which give themselves the authority to do whatever it is they currently want to do.

The mafia could do the same thing, correct?

However, who can remain gloomy when the all important Olympics are beginning next week?!

Maybe I'll see you at the stadium!!

Ouija Boards https://www.thinbasic.com/community/entry.php?36-Ouija-Boards Tue, 10 Jul 2012 06:10:06 GMT According to this article, the movements of an Ouija Board are due to the users' subconscious(s).

http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/shortsharpscience/2012/07/-is-there-anybody-there.html

I believe it.

Further, I would bet that the articles on the following two sites are straight from the authors' subconscious(s) (of course, some of the authors may be intentionally attempting to deceive), i.e., the authors are channeling no one, and they have zero special knowledge.

http://galacticchannelings.com/english/index.html

http://the2012scenario.com/

How someone can become absolutely convinced that what he or she writes is actually an important telepathic communication from non-humans, is a mystery to me (narcissistic mental illness?).

I doubt myself all day, every day.

How can people make such a great emotional investment in a phenomenon, which seems to me to have, a very tiny probability of being genuine?

If you look at the two sites above, you'll see that unbelievable changes are forecast for humanity before the end of 2012.

My bet is that none of them will happen.

But, if they don't happen, I would also bet that the two sites will just continue on.

I don't think anyone associated with the failed predictions will profess embarrassment, humiliation, or shame.

I'm reminded of cults.

When Steve Beckow, from the 2012scenario site, wants to prove something, he'll write, "Archangel Michael said..", or, "SaLuSa said..". In my opinion, either he is scamming, or, he is, "missing some screws". It doesn't seem to occur to him that Archangel Michael may be no one other than, his supposed channeler, Linda Dillon, and, SaLuSa may be no one other than his (her?) supposed channeler, Mike Quinsey.

(Also interesting to me is how the various "channelers" read what each other write, the result being that their storylines are similar and complementary. And, over time, an entire New Age vocabulary has evolved. If I am correct, in fact it has no connection to reality.)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today (tomorrow I may feel differently), I would bet that no human has ever communicated with any higher-terrestrial, extra-terrestrial, or spiritual being.

If I am correct, then, isn't it weird how religions spread and thrive like weeds?

In that case, religions remind me of little kids pretending, and telling each other stories - and then coming to believe them, maybe simply because of repetition. I can imagine the same thing with religions - what begins as fantasy, grows to become perceived reality - no one even remembers the original creator.

Today, I see the evolution of a human, from primitive to advanced as,

1.
hedonistic

2.
religious

3.
spiritual

4.
nihilistic

I would theorize that the nihilist is unlikely to reproduce.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(All of this is just current my opinions, I didn't type it in blood.)
