The Global Political Awakening of the Profane Masses

When the target of the American patriot community announced the “global political awakening” from the podium to the members of his ilk during the Council on Foreign Relations conference in Montreal, the patriot radio stations went ballistic in the info-war and began streaming the same portion of his speech to their info-hungry audiences. Of course the speaker was Zbigniew Brzezinski, former US National Security Advisor and the author of the notorious works The Grand Chessboard and Between Two Ages. In the neo-patriot/resistance movement Dr. Brzezinski is known as the geopolitical mastermind, “the gatekeeper” to the higher sciences and the man who worked on the project to provoke the Soviet Union to enter into Afghanistan in 1979 (see Interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski in the Le Nouvel Observateur, Paris, 15-21 January 1998). The speech on the awakening movement was swiftly picked up by every patriot radio station which did not cease to mention it every week during their regular broadcasting periods.
Nevertheless, many social fundamental questions remain unanswered and a continuous replay of Brzezinski’s speech does not act as a catalyst to move closer to the answers. What is the correct interpretation of Brzezinski’s “global political awakening” speech? What does it mean to be awake? Is there a difference between a deep awakening process of the individual and a reactionary movement of the masses? Perhaps the public is merely reacting to the immediate social changes and adapting to them in the process. The following essay will address these and other questions in the context of the general analysis of the contemporary American society.
Due to the growing influence of the alternative media and patriot radio stations any social study cannot afford to ignore certain contributions they made to the perception and behavior of the American citizens. Any influential group must be put under close scrutiny of the social observer in order to formulate the radius and estimate the magnitude of the ripple effects they are producing. Therefore it is utterly important to understand the content of the messages that are being disseminated by patriot groups in the US.  
Before proceeding to the author’s discussion on the realities of the awakening movement few comments are needed to draw the frame of references and define the “awakening” terminology.
To be disgruntled about the current economic situation, outraged after being laid off, generally dissatisfied with social institutions, i.e. family and church, angry from going into the foreclosure are not the evidence for the person’s “waking up” situation. These are reactions to the crunching circumstances, the outbursts of discontent and the expressions of anger. When the person is being squeezed tighter the squealing intensifies. It is quite natural for political/economic/social burdens to cause a cascade of negative reactions in the public. “I lost my job, my unemployment benefits are about to run out, I no longer trust the government, I lost my trust in the President I voted for…I am awake now!” These are the usual expressions of callers on the radio who claim to be “awake”. When the market prices and government taxes go up the wallet of the consumer is drained and the mood suffers respectively. Being kicked in teeth and then punched in the eye does not add smartness to the victim. What has stopped them from being “awake” before? Were they sufficiently satisfied with bread and circuses?
George Orwell gave two examples in his famous 1984 novel that illustrate different levels of the awakening process. I am under assumption that my reader is familiar with this work and I will not belabor him or her with the tedious summary. After the main character Winston Smith understood that something was terribly wrong in his world, he began to make inquiries to find out about the general conditions that existed before the Big Brother System came on the scene. He needed some kind of an idea of the past to compare it to the contemporary circumstances and determine if it is better at the present, as the Big Brother system claims it is, or worse. Winston went to the proles’ district and searched for the oldest person. The old rugged man was waiting at the bar stand, Winston approached him kindly and started to converse with an old fellow, asking questions. What was it like before Big Brother; does he remember things from his young years? The only things the old man could recall from the distant past were that the beer was better and he might have won in the lottery. He had nothing of value to impart. Winston was asking the right questions about the past and the system of the present and he was genuinely curious and eager to learn. But the wisdom of an old man was as useless as the three legged chair, because all of his years were spent on booze, women and playing the lottery.
Another story is found in the narrative of Winston Smith’s illicit romance with Julia. The intellectual rebellion against the Party helped Winston to develop the hunger for knowledge and information. And Julia’s rebellion consisted only in satisfying her carnal desires that were prohibited by the Inner Party. Winston often read to her the excerpts from the aged pages of books and newspapers, but Julia usually fell asleep. She did not have enough wit or desire to understand the orthodoxy that she was forced to regurgitate in public. Her rebellion was “from the waist downwards” as Winston liked to say. Julia was one of those people who knew when to cheer and when to boo at party meetings. She was aware that the Party was lying but did not care to grasp the meanings of the crude distortions of the objective reality.  The adherence to the political correctness of today is reminiscent to Julia’s disposition.         
According to the writings and interviews by Zbigniew Brzezinski the meaning of the “global political awakening” concept differs from what is understood by the patriot community. The 20th Century will go down into the annals of history as the century of mass education, mass proliferation of literature and when the precedent of the political awakening extended across the globe. The political awakening in the sense of the process in which the people are becoming politically aware and of the world in which the subject of politics has entered into everyone’s household. The politics are being discussed by the working class Americans on par with sports, entertainment and social affairs. The newspapers and books on the political issues can be purchased at any bookstore and are affordable to any working person. There are enough publicly available studies and data on any subject, but the only thing that is lacking is the number of concerned individuals. Anyone can become educated and informed on issues in order to fulfill their citizen duties. But how many do that? How many Americans do you know who can recite at least five amendments to the US Constitution? Therefore, the masses cannot fathom to pose any intellectual challenge to the elites. The core of the problem is in the public itself which is too easily distracted by the banalities on the television sets. Furthermore other innate obstacles prevent the genuine awakening to take place in the minds of the populace. For example, examine how easy it was to convince the public of the WMDs in Iraq and the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, the former friend of America, on the basis that he was simply a “bad man”. Brzezinski’s collection of papers called The Geostrategic Triad and his article in Foreign Affairs January/February 2010 Issue in addition to the political awakening concept mention the “trivialization of news” and the “CNN effect” which makes every crisis relevant. The statements by the geopolitical experts on the rising complexities of the global order do not imply any insurmountable problems. The complex world can be defined as the multifaceted, interdependent and intertwined global order in which the establishment of the new world order is only the beginning.
The indefatigable repetition of the term “new world order” by the neo-patriots will not postpone the emergence of the global system. And those who are not familiar with the globalization nomenclature in the first place will not be psychologically inclined toward the anti-globalist stance. In addition to that what they have failed to realize is that the World Government is the next logical step from the National Central Government. The nation-state emerged from the amalgamation of princes’ and barons’ owned provinces under one polity, which in turn emerged from the integration of dispersed tribes and villages. For example, Pushkarev’s A Survey of Russian History explains that under the threat of outside barbaric herds small Russian regions were united into the larger political bodies in the early stages of the Russian history. In America the states were unified under one Federal Government after the Civil War. And the nation building in France began under the reign of Louis XIV who enticed the noblemen and the clergy to unite under one polity. It is humorous to hear certain leaders of the patriot community and their enthusiastic remarks on the global awakening: people are getting smarter, the elites are panicking, there is an actual possibility of victory over the ruling elites and the forestalling of the “globalist agenda”. The Congress cannot even audit the US Federal Reserve Bank or Fort Knox, the US has no private property to speak of ( the property taxes nullify the very concept of private property), all the rights are being turned into privileges through licensing, etc. This has been going on for at least 100 years and the globalists’ plan is not being grinded to a halt.
If there is an actual global awakening taking place and everyone is getting smarter, we would not be in a mess we are in right now. And what has stopped them from doing that before? America had more opportunities in the past to nip the creeping globalization in the bud. The anti-globalization rhetoric is the primary milieu of any patriot radio station and so far their resistance is proving to be futile. In the background we are witnessing the continuous process of domestication of the American public. When the public is unaware about the basics of their own country, how can they comprehend the intricacies of the global picture? Many voice their opinions on Democracy. But according to Founding Fathers America is supposed to be a Constitutional Republic, in which the rights of the individual supersede the stampeding desires of the majority.
The members of the John Birch Society and many other researchers have warned Americans about the impending global government for decades and its explicit death sentence to the national sovereignty. Despite their numerous jeremiads the vitality of the New World Order has not been drained. The globalization trend which was launched in the 13th Century AD was never reversed and we are on the march toward an integrated international system. Jacques Attali, the France’s high-level bureaucrat, gave a historical account of the globalization phenomenon in his A Brief History of the Future. After the thorough examination of the movement of Capital and its designated elites Attali affirms that history flows in the stubborn direction and that not even Napoleon or Hitler could deflect it. The average person does not stand a chance against the prevailing global trend.     
The very concept of the “New World Order” is becoming passé; every politician, every big social leader and every mind molder uses it quite profusely. World leaders propagate the idea of the world government as the foremost solution to the world’s problems and a firm foundation for world peace. “Global problems require global solutions!” And what are “smart” Americans doing? Corporate revenues are a great indicator for that: eating in McDonald’s and watching sports.
One cannot claim ignorance for his or her defense when it comes to dangerous food additives, preservatives and GMO. There are so many informative documentary movies one can watch on the dangers of junk food and horrible food processing practices. Food, Inc. (2008) on the corporate food processing practices and their harmful impacts on the environment, The Future of Food (2004) about the threat that the genetically modified organisms pose on the biodiversity, The World According to Monsanto (2008) on the bankrupting of small farmers by the leading company specialized in the GM seed technology and Super Size Me (2004) on the effects of McDonald’s food upon human health. Furthermore if I were to step into a McDonald’s fast-food place and ask people: “How many of you believe that fast food is bad for you?” At least 70%, if not all of them, will raise their hands. What is wrong with that picture?      
There are many so-called radical right-wing groups in America who assign the guilt for all the problems and sufferings in the world on the international elitist families, i.e. Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Astors, Du Ponts and others. However, if one looks deeper into this conundrum he or she will find the cause in every American who supports this diabolical system through passive acquiescence or passionate justification. For example when they buy goods shipped from the Chinese slave factories, eat at McDonald’s, buy Tyson’s industrial meat, pay $150 a month for TV brainwashing, justify the atrocities committed against the Iraqi and Afghani civilians and put their personality profiles on facebook.com. Do you know that it takes several dozens of Chinese and Indian industrial slaves to manufacture your electronics, weave your clothing and make your shoes. The American consumer is a distant slave master, taking the crème from the world’s wealth, eating the fruits of somebody’s labor and keeping the surplus of production. Americans are now being told that the world is entering into an era of Global Competition. How can an American compete with 5-25 cents per hour Chinese worker?       
Americans are too preoccupied with sports and cheap entertainment and they have no time to be engaged in the public discourse or in the study of their supposed republic. However, a sports fan remembers all the game scores, keeps track of all players, he or she can go into elaborate sentences on picking the best players and placing them in the suitable positions to win the game. The brain capacity is there, but it is not utilized for more elevated purposes. It is not considered “cool” or “trendy” to study history, examine the preponderance of the US and related geopolitical imperatives throughout the world, read holy scriptures and conduct private research.
Can I speak with an average American about genetic engineering, the “great crash of 2008”, Goldman Sachs and its unlimited supply of personnel to the United States Department of the Treasury and the emergence of the Bretton Woods System Part II? Can I speak with an average Christian about the Talmudic interpretations of the first chapters of the book of Genesis, certain unsavory portions of the Old Testament, the zodiacal parallels with the twelve tribes of Israel and the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ and the Bible being ridden with sexual symbolism?
After several years of spirited Bible devotions at the age of eighteen I became a Christian zealot and made witnessing for Christ my personal duty. Every minute of my social life was devoted to the task of spreading the Gospel and sounding warnings about the impending Day of Judgment. Frankly, I would have had more success preaching to the sheep than to the stubborn nominal Christians. I had spent two years on the journey to spread the word which taught me a valuable lesson about the human nature and the overall social gradation. My discovery was not new to the history of thought. It was a mere personal understanding with strong spiritual connotations. People within each and every group are intellectually divided into two unequal parts: leaders and followers, independent thinkers and dull observers, actors and spectators, people with inquiring minds and those who “float” through life. If you are catching my drift, you will be of an opinion that sentient beings constitute a minority and the rest of the mass are blind followers of somebody’s bright idea. Therefore the entire structure of society depends on the wit of its leadership which can be either benevolent or tyrannical and the masses go with the flow and ride with the tide.
When I spoke with my fellow Christians about some of the Biblical content, I received either a stare or a sense of the complete lack of knowledge on the dogmatic stances. Some would relate a personal story to hold the conversation and avoid a deeper discussion on the postulates and principles of the Christian faith. Christians are not interested in the Bible and those who do show an interest are immediately placed into the pre-structured and preconceived interpretations of the scriptures. It will take another essay to explain how the interpretations of the Bible differ from one group to another and the asinine internal strife among Christian sects. The Church is treated as a social club, where people can congregate for general human interaction, build friendships and find a suitable mate. Very few individuals pursue knowledge and truth. In addition to that, the Christians who claim to be “truth seekers” are simply searching for evidence to reinforce their existing belief systems. The intellectual horizons cannot be expanded beyond the sect’s given philosophical frames. By the way, this is a premise of the Christian fundamentalist. The undesirable and contradictory evidence is discarded in order to preserve a cordial relationship with his or her predetermined ideology. The more ardent and knowledgeable “truth seekers” become leaders in the protestant communities and sometimes they are blessed with a large following.
The New Testament of the Christian Bible is explicit when it comes to comparing the people with a flock of sheep. Jesus Christ in the Four Gospels made it clear that people followed him because he gave them food and healed the sick, i.e. the provision of bread and entertainment. “…it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.” (Genesis 6:6) The mediocrity and the feeblemindedness of people have been noted many times in history. “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you?”—the words of anguish uttered by Jesus Christ in the Gospel of St. Matthew to the commoner’s request to heal his son.
After I delved into the subjects of history, sociology, philosophy and comparative religions, my educational horizons began to expand and the number of topics in my discussions with the average person swelled. As a consequence two societal instances were unveiled to me: first, people’s knowledge is limited to the education they received in their schools and second, the pursuit of the factual information is directed toward the areas directly pertaining to their professions.
The masses are not interested in the global processes and trends which contribute to the formation of national and global structures. Every person lives inside a small circle of acquaintances and stays within these boundaries for the rest of his or her life. The burden of solving national and global problems is transferred to the elected officials to whom people lend their power. Thus, more time is freed for fun and games. The fundamental question of survival is neglected in the process and people become more prone to be misled by the cunningness of the elites.
An individual who is truly awake has qualities peculiar to the wild animals. Alertness, carefulness, responsiveness to the changes in the surroundings and individualistic dimensions are all sound qualities of the sane person. According to the work by Charles Galton Darwin, the grandson of Charles Darwin, The Next Million Years, the human beings who have retained to their original wildness are the only ones who deserve and who are fit to survive. The survival of the fittest is the basic concept of the Darwinian evolution and everyone abides by it regardless of the participant’s faith in it or lack thereof. But the fundamental question of survival has been disregarded by the majority of domesticated Americans. Henceforth, this is the true “secret” [obviously I am alluding to the popular self-help book by Rhonda Byrne The Secret] behind the success of a handful of families who control the majority of wealth in the U.S. One of the first graphs the professors in colleges show to their students in Economics 101 courses is the wealth distribution graph. 95% of the entire US wealth belongs to less than 1% of the US population. So much for the equality in the great U.S. of A.! This situation is reminiscent to the George Orwell’s scenario in the Animal Farm: “All are equal, but some are more equal than others.”
Another forgotten truth in our modern civilization is that the only protectorate of the mind is the conscious self. You are the guardian of your mind and you are the only one who will be held responsible for the corruption of your mind. When the primitive types of defenses are down, which are responsible for survival, the person becomes susceptible to all forms of malicious influences. Hence, the personal walls can be breached and the mind conquered. The easy way through life is to be guided by an appealing leader, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many follow it. The narrow way, which leads to life, few find it (The Gospel according to St. Matthew). “Let the dead bury their dead” (Luke 9:60). This is a common expression found in the lexicon of philosophers and sages who designated all the unawake and uninitiated people as the walking dead, spiritually asleep and the profane bunch.
 One of the first things I stumbled upon in my stages of independent learning is the concealment of certain information by many organizations and the prevailing secrecy on certain topics. For example, the overriding power of the Federal Reserve Bank and its non-federal but private status, the 100 ruling families in the US and the real prospects of the single world government. It was both puzzling and nerve-racking. Many independent researchers from the patriot groups label the elite’s secrecy as the greatest threat to America and the rest of the world. I was of kindred spirit until I read the work by W. L. Wilmshurst The Meaning of Masonry. The author of the book [which was conveniently reprinted by Barnes&Noble in 1999] makes an argument for keeping certain truths away from the public’s eyes. The truth is too sacred to be unveiled before everyone. When the truth is released to the public, it immediately becomes corrupted, perverted and distorted beyond recognition. Wilmshurst contends that the public has a tendency to misunderstand many profound ideas and principles expressed by the world’s greatest teachers. Jesus Christ was a supporter of such a worldview when he spoke in parables and only the chosen pupils could understand him. Jesus also said metaphorically during the Sermon on the Mount: “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.” (Matthew 7:6) In other words, do not throw the gems of wisdom to the unwashed masses, because you will pay a dear price for that. The knowledge is too sacred to be handed out like thanksgiving turkeys in the food pantry.
In my opinion it was a huge mistake to let the Holy Bible out of the monastery to the unprepared peasants in the Western World. When the Bible was first translated into the vulgar or common languages and allowed to be read by the laymen, these occurrences gave rise to the revolutionary changes in Europe. It was a turning point for Christendom when hundreds and thousands of rivaling groups appeared, each battling to push through their interpretation of the Holy Scriptures. Instead of brotherly charity and kindness, there are numerous sectarian battles springing up from the differences of opinion over a single Bible verse. Each protestant group claims exclusivity and superiority in their understanding of the Bible and believes that they will occupy the first row in Heaven. These are not the signs of spiritual maturity or greater cosmic understanding.
The above mentioned observations are not some unimportant personal remarks or isolated incidents, but a set of prevalent sentiments which are becoming the perils of our modern civilization. There exists an innate inability of the large percentage of the population to come out from the ignorance and spiritual darkness into the illuminating light of knowledge and higher levels of understanding. Therefore I will make a postulation similar to the one made by Wilmshurst: it is dangerous and erroneous to give out sacred truths to laymen like Halloween candy on the streets.
Generally speaking the awareness spreads unevenly, few individuals here and there raising their heads from the ground and for the first time starting to think for themselves. It is a rare and almost a religious type of experience. Buddha’s, Lao-Tzu’s and Jesus’ message was never meant to be accepted en masse. When it is given to the larger segments of the population the original doctrine is usually watered down and remolded to be attractive and sellable to the Joe Shmoe. The average person is a cheering or a booing spectator. The average listener of the “truth” radio station is waiting to be intrigued by the latest exposé, the dirt under some politician’s fingernails and, my god, somebody is going to take over the whole world. They are tuning in for entertainment reasons and not to amplify their global understanding or reach the next level of discernment.               
What happened to the America’s industrial base? Why products are suddenly all made in China? It is not that I want to work in the steamy factory, but apparently there is a growing nostalgia about the great productive American past. According to the Foreign Affairs articles [e.g. January/February 2009 Issue and others] the door to China was opened and all US industries started to move out overseas in the early 1970s after Kissinger and Nixon initiated activities with the Chinese government in secret. What was America doing at that time? America was in the deep recession, inflation and unemployment were skyrocketing and everything else was summed up in the cliché “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll”. They were busy having fun, copulating left, right and center. The whole country was in the one psychedelic dream. Nowadays, when the industries are totally gone we are forced to consume Chinese goodies which break the moment you get them out of the box. Wired magazine, May 2009 Issue, had a short article on page 52 written in small print stating that there are scientists who work on formulas to ensure that the electronic gadgets go out of order and break right after the warranty expires. The product lifespans are deliberately lowered to increase sales. The best brains work on techniques to compel consumers to dish out their hard earned money and buy products which they do not really need and are not meant to last.
Another set of best brains works on Wall Street, manipulating the stock market prices and earning bonuses for sinking the entire economy. However the only thing that the public still knows how to do is to be disenchanted about the corruption, the injustice and the inequity. Time magazine, March 11, 1974 issue, in the Letters section included a complaint from a reader who was decrying the ridiculously high salaries and bonuses the executives of the oil companies were receiving. Remember this was going on in the midst of the oil crisis. And in the midst of the financial fallout of 2009 the Americans were complaining that the CEOs of large corporations and banking firms were receiving bonuses while the economy was suffering from the financial crash of September 2008. I guess the times do not change and people never learn.
From the days of the passage of the National Security Act and the creation of the CIA the techniques of the psychological and informational warfare had become known to every peculiar researcher. However, little attention has been given to the levels of success of the brainwashing campaigns upon the populace. Aldous Huxley, a well known English writer and philosopher, clarified in the non-fictional book Brave New World Revisited that not everyone is susceptible to the workings of propaganda and persuasion campaigns, but the large bulk of the population does succumb to the state approved ideas and views. The acquiescence of the overwhelming majority was well understood by Edward Bernays, who used it to create the Consumer Society in the US. For further details on the exploitation of human weaknesses to produce happy consumers watch The Century of the Self by Adam Curtis, a British documental filmmaker and writer who currently works for BBC.        
A large number of deep thinkers and philosophers issued dire warnings on the dangers stemming from the obsession with the technological advancements. Neil Postman, who was a professor of Media Ecology at New York University, argued earnestly in his books that it is a Faustian bargain to accept a new technological breakthrough, because the new electronic device brings forth both advantages and disadvantages. Professor Postman was also aware of the indifference about such thoughts that exists in America, the country which celebrates and feels proud about its technological society. Couple it with other insightful and exhaustive works by social critics, participants and culture engineers: The Hidden Persuaders by Vance Packard on the workings of advertising on the human brain, Propaganda by Edward Bernays on the engineering of consent in the democratic state, The Impact of Science on Society by Lord Bertrand Russell on the scientific techniques employed by the central government to control the masses and The Technological Society by Jacques Ellul on the standardization of culture and its impact on men and women. These and other valuable books carry enough insight to wake anybody up and begin resisting the standardization of thought. I wonder sometimes how many Americans have read them.
Human beings were created to be an intimate part of nature and given a job of stewards of the Earth, to care and tender for her and become the wise guardians of her eternal treasures. We can only reap adverse consequences from the transformation of pristine forests into the concrete jungles of the city. We were made to live on open spaces, be spread out and gaze at a distance. Conversing with nature and our fellow species is the practical cure to all diseases and mental ailments. There is no need for a psychiatrist when you have an opportunity to listen to the soothing melodies of the creek, the sounds of the forest and the chirping of birds. The above narrative is not a digression from the article’s main theme but a vivid example of the level of detachment of people from reality. For instance, I have a great concern for the food I eat and upon my discovery that all apples on store shelves are covered with wax type of compound I started speaking out. One day standing at the store’s register I brought the wax-covered apples subject to the store’s employee and without any hesitation he gave me a shocking response. Apparently all apples naturally release a wax-type of liquid and cover themselves for protection. Finally I went to the Whole Foods’ store manager and her response was of no greater merit. She kept repeating that the apples are certified organic and all the standards were met. Others were simply indifferent to my remarks. I cannot change people who are willingly ignorant and do not look for the cure from their profane states of being. These instances are illustrative of the conditions in which the majority of the public dwells in. The conditions of blissful ignorance.
For the past 50 years Americans have complained about Big Government. The alternative media, including various patriot groups, specialized in exposing government cover-ups and sounding alarm bells on the looming one world system. However, the indignation alone did not produce any tangible results. The first step of the awakening process is getting indignant against the evils of the system, but it is not the last step. Howard Beale expressed these sentiments succinctly in the movie Network (1976) and the words of his speech that he delivered on the air are surprisingly relevant today: “I don’t have to tell you things are bad, everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s worth. Banks are going bust. Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the streets. There’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat! And we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had 15 homicides and 63 violent crimes as if that’s the way it supposed to be! We know things are bad! Worse than bad, they’re crazy! It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out anymore. We sit in the house and slowly the world we’re living in is getting smaller and all we say is, “Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV, and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything! Just leave us alone!” Well, I’m not going to leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don’t want you to protest, I don’t want you to riot, I don’t want you to write to your congressmen because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write! I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians, and the crime in the streets. All I know is that first, you’ve got to get mad! You’ve got to say, “I’m a human being, God damn it, my life has value…I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!”
Unfortunately the sheer madness and complaining will not resolve the societal and political quagmires. The author’s suggestion to the patriot groups and everyone who still resists the planetary empire is to inject a healthy dosage of pragmatism into your resistance movements, unite under the common front and tackle the beast you are fighting against. The only enemy of the international elites is your individuality, your mind and the belief that human life is sacred. By grasping those things you will place your foot on the narrow path of profound understanding. “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6) is the warning to those who made the choice to remain willingly ignorant and found refuge in the acquiescence to the popular streams of thought. Challenging the conventional wisdom is the sign of the thinking individual, regardless of how correct or faulty the new proposition is. Start thinking for yourself and the path of awakening will illuminate before your eyes.
