How Corporations Hijacked Personhood
by SARTRE
Posted August 8, 2019

corporations are legal constructs, not peopleCommerce is not a dirty word, nor is the creation of wealth when it is achieved within a free market economy. The problem is that the remnant of a free market existed only in an age before the mercantile interests were able to redefine the character of business transactions. Today, few question the nature of the corporation. Even small business ventures migrate towards the organizational structure of a corporate entity.

What is a corporation? Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary defines it as ‘an ingenious device for obtaining profit without individual responsibility’. It is a legal construct, a charter granted by the state to a group of investors to gather private funds for a specific purpose. Originally, charters were granted in the service of a public purpose, and could be revoked if this were not fulfilled.

The relationship between state and corporation is a complex one. Over the past 400 years corporations have conquered territory and brought in resources for the state, breaking laws put in place to constrain them and gaining in power and privilege. History shows a repetitive cycle of corporations over-reaching, causing such social turmoil that the state is forced to reign them back in through regulation. More…

The Facts:
Corporations have now grown more powerful than the governments that initially granted their charters. It is no secret that because of this new power shift, governments now serve transnational corporate and big money interests.

Reflect On:
Consider the consequences of allowing corporations to continue to get larger and larger through acquisitions and mergers. What will the world look like when a small handful of corporations control almost all production, financial transactions, media outlets, and own most of the resources in the world?

The Silver Stealers

The Silver Stealers

Pilgrim Societies of US and BritainThe Silver Stealers have rigged the game since way before any of us were born. They always use the power of government to steal silver. The only way they can be stopped from stealing silver (and gold, and everything else, like private home ownership in America) is to have their identities, and their organization, to become known. Their organization is The Pilgrims Society! You can knock yourselves out just researching the excerpt from the list.

Observe! The United States citizenry is and has been influenced in their thinking by an organization that only an extreme few of them have ever heard of!

Speaking at the United Nations on September 14, 1994, Pilgrims Society member David Rockefeller, whose family donated the land on which the U.N. buildings stand, remarked—

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”

All of the most important globalists, even with incomplete membership lists, can be traced to only a handful of societies, ESPECIALLY THE PILGRIMS; all of the important globalists can be traced to the Rockefeller-Kissinger-Rothschild triumvirate; the influence of these organizations and people are seldom, if ever, mentioned by the mainstream news and has never been recorded in the history books; everyone, at least in the West, is afraid of the word “conspiracy” when the whole process of international relations seems to be one giant conspiracy, not to mention all the other areas that are being affected.” More…

Edward Snowden: With Technology, Institutions Have Made ‘Most Effective Means of Social Control in the History of Our Species’
by Andrea Germanos
Posted August 3, 2019

Edward Snowden has been warning usNSA whistleblower Edward Snowden said Thursday that people in systems of power have exploited the human desire to connect in order to create systems of mass surveillance.

Right now, he said, humanity is in a sort of “atomic moment” in the field of computer science. “We’re in the midst of the greatest redistribution of power since the Industrial Revolution, and this is happening because technology has provided a new capability,” Snowden said.

“It’s related to influence that reaches everyone in every place,” he said. “It has no regard for borders. Its reach is unlimited, if you will, but its safeguards are not.” More…

Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts

Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts
by Martin Seif Ph.D. ABPP and Sally Winston Psy.D.
Posted July 27, 2019

intrusive thoughts Everyone has passing intrusive thoughts that seem to come from outside their control: The content may feel alien, absurd, or threatening, and they pass after a few weird moments. Intrusive thoughts can be frightening worries about what might happen to you or someone you care about, or what mistake you might make, or what terrible impulsive act you might possibly commit.

People who experience unwanted intrusive thoughts become afraid that they might commit the acts they picture in their mind. They also fear that the thoughts mean something terrible about them. Many are ashamed and worried about these thoughts, and therefore keep them secret.

People who are bothered by intrusive thoughts need to learn a new relationship to these sticky thoughts—that their content is irrelevant and unimportant. Virtually everyone has occasional weird, bizarre, socially improper, annoying, and violent thoughts. More…

US Government Tops All for Creating Refugees

US Government Tops All for Creating Refugees
by Eric Zuesse
Posted July 26, 2019

US creates more refugees than any other nationOn June 19th, Statistica headlined “Number of forcibly displaced people reaches new high”, and when one looks at the data, one finds an even bigger story which stands behind those numbers:

This new report from the United Nations documents Statistica’s headline, and it proves that America’s regime-change operations have actually created around half of the world’s refugees. It proves that America’s penchant for invading and trying to overthrow the governments that its billionaires want to replace (“regime-change”) has been by far the biggest of all single causes of refugees worldwide, vastly higher than any other government. Regardless of how bad those other governments might possibly be, the US regime is far worse — at least as being the cause, the creator, of the world’s refugee problems. More…

The Lessons of Rome: Our Neofeudal Oligarchy

The Lessons of Rome: Our Neofeudal Oligarchy
by Charles Hugh Smith
Posted July 20, 2019

lessons from the pastThere are two points worth discussing. One is the acceleration of change; what took 300 years now takes 30, or perhaps less.

The second is the slow erosion of commoners’ self-rule and ownership of meaningful, productive capital.

This gradual, almost imperceptible erosion is what I call neofeudalism, a process of transferring political and economic power from commoners to a new Financial Aristocracy/Nobility.

If we examine the “wealth” of the middle class/working class (however you define them, the defining characteristic of both is the reliance on labor for income, as opposed to living off the income earned by capital), we find the primary capital asset is the family home, which as I have explained many times, is unproductive–in essence, a form of consumption rather than a source of income.

The Jackboots Are Coming: Mass Arrests, Power Grabs and the Politics of Fear

The Jackboots Are Coming: Mass Arrests, Power Grabs and the Politics of Fear
By John W. Whitehead
Posted July 19, 2019

be afraid, be very afraidHow do you persuade a populace to embrace totalitarianism, that goose-stepping form of tyranny in which the government has all of the power and “we the people” have none?

You persuade the people that the menace they face (imaginary or not) is so sinister, so overwhelming, so fearsome that the only way to surmount the danger is by empowering the government to take all necessary steps to quash it, even if that means allowing government jackboots to trample all over the Constitution.

This is how you use the politics of fear to persuade a freedom-loving people to shackle themselves to a dictatorship. It works the same way every time. More…

The Facts:
US Constitutional protections are being rapidly eroded as citizens experience warrantless surveillance, censorship, stop and frisk searches, SWAT team raids, roadside strip searches, asset forfeiture schemes, private prisons, indefinite detention, militarized police, etc.

Reflect On:
Consider what you are giving up the next time you feel fear from some menace, threat, or perceived enemy. Who is placing you into this state of fear? If certain rights are given up, do you believe they will later be restored?

Why Technology Favors Tyranny

Why Technology Favors Tyranny

Posted July 14, 2019

technology favors tyrannyArtificial intelligence could erase many practical advantages of democracy, and erode the ideals of liberty and equality. It will further concentrate power among a small elite if we don’t take steps to stop it.

There is nothing inevitable about democracy. For all the success that democracies have had over the past century or more, they are blips in history. Monarchies, oligarchies, and other forms of authoritarian rule have been far more common modes of human governance.

The emergence of liberal democracies is associated with ideals of liberty and equality that may seem self-evident and irreversible. But these ideals are far more fragile than we believe. Their success in the 20th century depended on unique technological conditions that may prove ephemeral. More…

Quotable Sayings

great accomplishments

Mainstream American liberals think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by Fox and Donald Trump, and mainstream American conservatives think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by MSNBC and the Democrats, but the propaganda strings on both trace back to the same puppet master. And seeing that is just the beginning.

main stream media propaganda

It is obvious that the US government is destroying Assange to signal to journalists the consequences of publishing information. It is therefore also obvious that any journalist who fails to use whatever platform they have to speak out against Assange’s persecution has no intention of ever publishing anything that the US government doesn’t want published. Their silence on or support for what is being done to this man can and should be taken as an admission that they are nothing other than state propagandists.
