The Season of Crisis and Total War – Using the Great Depression/WW II as a guide but assuming it will be worse this time will give you an idea of how to prepare yourself and your family

Petr Krivonogov - Atrocities in Rechitsa

Winter is a time of decay and destruction to make way for the coming renewal of spring. Those who fail to prepare for the winter can have a difficult time getting through it. Each season has its’ differences but winter is by far the harshest. Every season has a role to play in the cycle of life.

Strauss and Howe explain the four seasons of human cycles in The Fourth Turning. As it is said, history does not repeat, but it does rhyme. The reason for this are the four cycles we continuously go through. History bears this fact out all too plainly for anyone who cares to look.

We are now in the winter season of the current cycle. This cannot be changed. The generation, born between 1964 and 1984, are the Nomads, the ones with the survival and leadership skills to lead the way in the winter season. This is how it always is.

If they play their roles well, it will usher in a new golden age, like the High we experienced after WW II but if they fail to step forward and do their part, we could begin an era of darkness. The future is not written, but will play out based on human actions that are somewhat consistent. We must not ignore the cycles and prepare for the trying times ahead.

Strauss and Howe explain how human cycles always culminate in the winter season and move us through the gateway into the next cycle. The winter season is a time of hardship and danger. It is a time of crisis. The American Revolution, the Civil War and The Great Depression/WW II were all winter seasons. Each winter season culminates with a great war and this one should be no different. During each of these wars, the newest and most destructive weapons in existence were used to achieve total victory.

With the weapons we now posses, this could make this cycle the most deadly to date. Something noticeable about these three wars is that each was worse than the last. The culminating wars are not the only thing we have to fear in the winter season. The social, political and financial currents that flow through society will be in upheaval as well. As Strauss and Howe have said, you should prepare for the winter season as if it were a winter blizzard that will last seven years. There is still time to prepare for the coming winter cycle but time is short.

Using the Great Depression/WW II as a guide but assuming it will be worse this time will give you an idea of how to prepare yourself and your family. In The American Dream Lost and Rebuilding The Republic I discuss some ways to shield yourself and your family from situations like we are about to face. Those that go into the future with their eyes open and armed with the knowledge of history will be in a position to mold their futures and that of their children. This Fourth Turning is expected to end around 2025 so you should plan accordingly. The bulk of the crisis should be seen between now and 2020.

Another aspect of the two previous winter seasons is the fact that personal liberties and freedom were substantially decreased each time. This winter season could see the final slide into dictatorship or the rebirth of freedom, depending on the will of the people. How the people react to the coming crisis will be the determining factor.

The plans you make now will determine your future and that of your children so due diligence should be taken. As with a winter storm, you should plan for all aspects of this season. You want to insure food, shelter, clothing, energy and medical resources are available to weather the storm. These are not the only things to concern yourself with.

With the passing of winter you need to insure you have the resources to begin the new spring. The seeds to begin anew may be actual seeds, property, gold or silver or equipment to produce the needs of people. The spring should be a time of prosperity and new beginnings so insure you are prepared to take advantage of it. This is something that each and every person must do for themselves. Armed with the knowledge of history, our future will be what we make of it.

Those that understand The West Line and the cycles of history will have a better understanding of the world around them and will have some idea of the changes to come and the actions they must take.

We Are Only Just Beginning To See The Negative Impacts Of Technology, And If The Early Data Is Any Indication, It Is Likely To Have A Significant Negative Impact On The Upcoming Generations

Negative-Impacts-Of-Technology-On-Society

We’ve all seen it.  You’re in a restaurant, and at the next table is a family.  The adults and the kids all have cell phones.  Everyone is on their screen, and no one is engaged in conversation.  Besides the obvious lack of social interaction, is anyone paying attention to the other adverse affects that technology is having on us?  Actually, science is, but first let’s look at some numbers.

  • A Kaiser Foundation Study found that elementary age children averaged 7.5 hours a day using entertainment technology.
  • 75% of these children have televisions in their bedrooms
  • 50% of household have a TV on in their house all day
  • 68% of 2 year old regularly use tablets, 59% have a smartphone, and 44% have a video game console
  • In another study, close to 50% of parents surveyed said they use technology of some sort to keep children age 0-3 entertained.
  • 1.8 billion people in the world own smartphones and use them daily
  • In the UK, 70% of 11-12 year olds use cell phones, and that number increases to 90% by age 14.
  • 25% of children age 2-5 have a smartphone
  • The average smartphone user check their phone 150 times a day.

Digital Dementia is a term coined by German neuroscientist Dr. Manfred Spritzer in 2018 based on his research proving the breakdown of cognitive function related to the overuse of technology. Spritzer and other researchers have demonstrated the following adverse effects of technology overuse:

  • Sensory deficits from the the lack of movement associated with the sedentary nature of technology use.
  • Postural changes associated with technology use including forward head posture (tech neck) with slouched shoulders and back leading to headaches, neck pain and low back pain.
  • Increased rates of ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, developmental delay, anxiety, learning disorders, sleep disorders, and other behavioral disorders in children due to the overstimulation of auditory and vestibular pathways.
  • Significantly decreased physical activity levels contributing to childhood and adult obesity.  2-3 hours daily of active play has been shown to be critical for normal brain development in children.
  • Video games and violence on TV have been shown to significantly increase sympathetic activity (“fight/flight” response) in children and adults leading to anxiety and depression disorders.

Brain researchers have now identified what they are calling internet addiction disorder.  Research by Kimberly Young PhD and others have demonstrated that there can be significant negative brain changes associated with excessive time spent on the internet.  These changes are associated with excessive dopamine stimulation via the reward and pleasure centers in the brain.  These are the same pathways activated by certain drugs such as cocaine, opiates, and methamphetamines.

In addition to all the adverse neurological and physical effects associated with technology overuse, there are some other significant issues that should be considered.

All digital devices emit high levels of blue light.  Blue light is proven to increase cortisol levels.  Cortisol is the stress hormone.  Chronically elevated cortisol levels have been shown to cause shrinkage in some brain areas, most notably the hippocampus, which is associated with memory and recall, as well as containing high numbers of neural stem cells.  Elevated cortisol is also a major contributor to obesity and Type II Diabetes.  It also disrupts our normal circadian rhythm leading to sleep disorders.

Another concern is mounting evidence that long term exposure to the electromagnetic fields associated with modern digital devices can have negative health consequences. Over 25,000 articles have been published in scientific journals over the last 30 years about the effects of EMF’s (electromagnetic fields) on human health.

There are thing we can do to reduce the negative impacts of technology on our brains and health:

  • Limit the amount of time we spend on our devices to less than 3 hours a day.
  • Maintain normal posture while using devices.  Forward head posture from looking down at devices alters the resting state of the brain, leading to decreased levels of alertness.
  • Exercise improves brain health dramatically in both children and adults, and has been shown to improve memory and cognitive function.
  • Avoid blue light exposure from all screens and other artificial light sources at night. Install blue light filers such as flux or iris on all devices if possible.  Purchase blue light blocking glasses to wear if you watch TV at night.
  • Put your Wi-fi modem and router on a power strip and shut it down before you go to bed.

This is a serious issue for you and your children.  I implore you to not ignore the very real consequences of electronic technology. The rise of these technological advances has only happened in the last 20 year years, and is accelerating rapidly.  We are only just beginning to see the negative impacts of technology, and if the early data is any indication, it is likely to have a significant negative impact on the upcoming generations.  Given the rise in cognitive and neurological degenerative changes that we are already seeing in our population, it is critical that we protect our brains from the emerging challenges associated with increased technology use.

When Complex Systems Fail, They Almost Never Fail All At Once. This Could Happen Very Rapidly Or It Could Happen Over A Matter Of Minutes, But The Damage Will Be The Same

20160212_2004_3F11E

When complex systems fail, they almost never fail all at once. They usually suffer from a cascading failure or a series of smaller failures leading up to the complete breakdown of the systems functions. Our social, economic and environmental systems are all breaking down and the end result will be catastrophic for the people, but the breakdown will not happen all at once.

Many people understand that the system is failing but they do not have a clear understanding of how it will affect them. In a cascading failure one part leads to the damage and failure of another part until everything stops. In an automobile, when the oil pump goes bad it stops pumping oil to all of the internal parts that come in contact with one another preventing them from causing excess wear to one another. As the oil flow stops it will not stop the engine or any other parts from working and you will continue down the road unknowing unless a light or gage gives you a warning. As the oil is worn off of the metal parts you begin to get more signs something is wrong. The lifters will start tapping louder as time goes on and the temperature of the engine will start to increase as the parts cause more friction with one another. Eventually the bearings will begin to wear excessively against one another until they seize up and stop the engine completely.

This could happen very rapidly or it could happen over a matter of minutes, but the damage will be the same. Many people feel that the economic problems they see ahead will occur like a car wreck, happening very rapidly and ending suddenly in heavy damage and chaos. With large complex systems, there are many moving parts and they rarely all fail simultaneously. Instead you will more likely see a cascading series of failures that cause increasing damage as they progress. You might think of the coming breakdown more like falling down a long flight of stairs rather than an automobile accident.

As you begin to fall at the top of the stairs you realize you are in trouble but it takes a short period of time before the first damage is done. As you impact the first step you suffer much damage as your body absorbs the initial impact and slows you down a little. Then as you roll and tumble down the stairs you suffer more injury. Some steps you will hit hard and some you may miss entirely along the way. As you fall the injuries will increase until you get to the bottom. One person may fall all the way down and only suffer a few bruises while another may suffer a fractured skull and multiple broken bones. The difference comes in how flexible you are and able you are to absorb the impacts.

As you look at the potential breakdown ahead of you, you must look at your surroundings and consider cause and effect in evaluating the series of failures that will occur. It may take much longer for the breakdown to occur, requiring you to have a plan to carry you through the series of failures over a matter of weeks or months.

Let’s look at one type of breakdown. A hyperinflation situation does not happen overnight. It occurs over a matter of months or years. The systems that the people depend on become more dysfunctional as the inflation continues until they cannot function normally.

As the money becomes worth less the prices of necessities become more expensive. Those that depend on fixed income suffer as their money buys less and less. The workers are able to keep up with inflation for a while due to rising wages but even that becomes a losing battle. As the manufacturers and energy providers raise wages to keep up with inflation they also must raise prices to compensate. This affects fixed income people first then later the average man. As the masses begin to suffer from lack of necessities they sell or trade whatever they have to survive.

If they complain enough, the government may impose price controls to freeze prices. As the inflation continues producers begin to lose money on their products and at some point stop selling the items they are losing money on. This is when large farms will likely be visited by government buyers and will force the farmers to sell their products to the government for the set price which is a losing proposition for the farmers. Many will not continue producing the excess they once did and instead produce only for personal use until the situation changes. This causes real shortages where people cannot get the item even if they have plenty of currency. This is when the real suffering begins.

Those that have money and try to send it out of the affected area to preserve it may find that at some point the government enacts capital controls preventing you from moving your money out of the area. In this type of situation the actions taken by the government almost always cause more problems than they solve but they do them because the people demand action.

The people that get along better than most are the small farmers that operate under the radar and can provide food and items for barter. This is usually referred to as a black market, which operates in the shadows of a failing system to provide those with tradable items with the things they must have.

In a slow decay of support systems, a person must have not only stored items for trade but also be able to create items in a sustainable way to ride out the decay until the situation can stabilize and normal production systems can get back on line.

When the breakdown starts you need to be able to provide basics for your family until it is over. You need to have support systems that are fully owned and will not be lost especially through bankruptcy. You need to have shelter you can depend on. You need to have transportation you can depend on. You need stored food and clothing and a way to replenish those supplies for an indefinite period of time. You need a way to produce the energy you need such as wind, solar or wood gas. You need a place that is relatively safe and a way to protect your family when things become violent. You need resources to grow and store food. You need communications to keep you informed and medical resources to keep you healthy.

A simple plan might be to acquire 2 to 5 acres of land in a rural area, have a large tent, trailer or structure such as a cottage to live in, have some basic tools to produce food and some way to produce your own energy. With these few things you would be able to get by during the worst of the crisis and be able to produce excess to trade for the other things you need. The better you plan for a long series of failures, the more flexible you will be and the more able you will be to absorb the impacts on the way down. When the system fails and you end up at the bottom of the stairs, you want to be in the condition to get up and shake off the few bruises that you have. Those that fail to plan will suffer untold damage as their brittle bodies bounce and roll uncontrollably along the way leaving them unable to function when they reach the bottom.

With The Economy Collapsing Little By Little, The Government Will Slowly Lose The Ability To Respond To Disasters Around The Country

Large scale disasters happen all over the world on a regular basis. In the U.S., agencies such as FEMA are tasked with providing relief for stricken communities when disaster strikes. This is a blessing and a curse. It is good to have a centralized agency that has the resources at hand to immediately react to disasters to help, but the larger the mandate is, the less effective the relief will be.

During the days of the cold war, local civil defense teams were the norm to help communities to stabilize and recover after a catastrophic disaster such as nuclear war. This placed the resources and manpower to help the community at the disaster location and provided an immediate response to any disaster. Resources and manpower would not have to be shipped to the location from somewhere else before recovery operations could begin.

This almost entirely eliminated the 72 hour period when people would be on their own before they could expect help. A civil defense unit provides the means for a community to help itself. With resources and manpower utilized at the community level, it also provided more personalized help for individuals than the current system which is geared to help people in mass.

The current system is not able to respond properly to catastrophic situations as has been proven in the past decade. It is a bloated bureaucracy that siphons money and resources away from more productive systems. In the event of a disaster of national scale, it would be almost powerless to help the average citizen. In that event, FEMA would almost exclusively render aid to government agencies and personnel. Because of this, it is not realistic for the average citizen to expect government help after a regional or national event.

This is the primary reason a community civil defense unit will be needed in the future if and when things go terribly wrong on a national scale. This type of unit should be made up of volunteers with a diverse set of skills. Every unit should be set up to handle 200 to 500 individuals for at least two weeks. Supplies should be acquired at the local level by donations and direct purchase by members. A standardized SOP should be written and utilized by CD units.

Why would you want to utilize a CD unit rather than small groups of preppers? Even a well stocked prepper community can find itself in distress. The destruction from Katrina, Sandy and at Joplin shows that large sections of housing can be flooded or completely wiped away along with everything inside. In this event, a prepper would be lucky to survive much less with all of their supplies in tact. When this happens, it is good to have a well stocked CD unit, situated in a sheltered area away from the immediate destruction. A well planned unit can determine what dangers they may face and utilize a safe area for storage of supplies. With all of the recent flooding in Colorado, a CD unit with storage on high ground would have been very helpful to victims during and immediately following the flooding there.

A community based CD unit will need certain capabilities.
– Potable water supplies
– Food stores and cooking capabilities
– Temporary housing and work space
– Sanitation and hygiene facilities
– Communications (ham operators)
– Medical services
– Transportation
– Search and rescue capabilities
– Security capabilities
– Clothing supplies

The four primary capabilities needed are food, water, shelter and medical support. These are the primary things the population will need short term to start recovery within the community. Food can be donated by local individuals to help provide an emergency supply of food. Bulk foods that are inexpensive and store well like beans, rice, cornmeal, oatmeal and powdered milk can provide a basic meal to those in need. Basic cooking supplies and wood stoves offer an inexpensive source for cooking. Shelter can be as simple as a hoophouse used for plants or large tents. Portable garage enclosures now sold can provide a good shelter at reasonable expense. Basic medical supplies can be stocked fairly cheap to allow the most basic care until victims can be transported to better medical facilities. Community involvement is vital to provide the resources and donations needed to make this type of system work.

Starting small and building up assets is a multi year project but can reap huge benefits over time. One of the biggest problems now is the governments’ opposition to individual self help where government wants total control. This opposition will likely decrease with time as the government looses the ability to respond to emergencies. A local CD unit should make every effort to keep government at all levels out of the planning and response phases due to the fact that government creep will eventually seek to take control of the operations for political and control reasons. That does not mean the CD unit cannot coordinate emergency operations with local officials.

This type of citizen led unit fits well with the institution of a local citizen militia. The CD unit can provide support to the militia when security issues warrant and the militia can provide manpower to the CD unit during disaster response. This would be similar to breaking military units into support elements and combat elements.

With the economy collapsing little by little, the government will slowly lose the ability to respond to disasters around the country. As that happens, the civilian population will need a backup plan to care for themselves. It is a certainty that disasters will continue and government will become less effective as time goes on. In the future, help will come from within the communities more so that from outside so now is a time to plan for that eventuality.

Technology Is The Master of Modern Slavery – A Double Edged Sword That We Wield That Must Be Handled With Care Less We Cut Off One Of Our Own Limbs

Technology is a double edged sword that we wield that must be handled with care less we cut off one of our own limbs. Technology allows us to be more productive and work faster than without it but as we embrace more technology to relieve us of many manual tasks we must not let it rule our very existence.

Technology must be used as a lever, not a crutch. When we give up our ability to function in daily life and allow technology to rule our every move, we ultimately give up our freedom. To allow technology to dictate what we can do and when we can do it is to reduce ourselves to nothing more than compliant slaves to it.

When a hospital cannot perform operations or even see patients because their computers are down or we cannot communicate or travel because of computer hacking, we have allowed technology to become a crutch that prevents us from falling on our faces in its absence. When we cannot buy food or fuel or depend on electrical power for basic needs we have become too dependant on the technology we invented to assist us.

The use of technology is a good thing that allows us to move forward and build things we never dreamed of before but when it becomes a weakness, we need to reexamine our use of it. If we become so dependant on technology that we cannot function without it we are preparing ourselves for a doomsday scenario when it eventually fails and we are helpless to care for ourselves.

It is only logical to have backup systems to utilize in the event our technology fails for some reason. This is the whole reason we have people to warn us before hand such as the EMP Commission to tell us we are in danger if certain events happen. Technology provides us with many good things but it also leaves us susceptible to many bad things as well if we ignore our responsibility to use it wisely and not become too dependant on it.

Many people today can actually have withdrawal symptoms if they lose access to their technology for any length of time. This should be an alarm to society but most just brush it off as fear mongering. When the loss of technology causes a business to completely stop operations, that should be an indication they do not have sufficient backup systems to fall back on.

One of the prime tenants of the prepper movement is that they have multiple backup systems to rely on if technology stops working. This is just a logical step taken by people that have taken the time to analyze the threats posed by the loss our technology and determine action is warranted for the preservation of life following certain events. The less technology you require to take care of daily activities, the more freedom you have to live a normal life.

Most people still do not take the threat of technological disruptions to society seriously. They think that if something happens, someone will fix it and life will go on as normal. What they refuse to contemplate is if something happens and nobody can fix it. As society moves along this technological road they become more dependent on it and the risk to their lives increases as they lose the ability to do basic tasks. Hopefully this latest cyber attack will instill in people the need to have backup systems in place to continue their daily activities and live life as a free person and not be a slave to the technology they so eagerly seek.

The Bible states that no one is going to buy or sell without a “mark in their right hand or forehead.” This “mark” is in the advanced developmental stage with various applications to put RFID Chip Implants in the body.

Revelation Chapter 13:16-18 states

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast (Antichrist), or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six:” 666

Imagine what the apostle John must have thought when, in about 95 AD, he saw a vision of this taking place in a futuristic world. People ever since have been baffled as to how any such universal, totalitarian economic system could be established or policed.

Tied into the ability to control all buying and selling will be the complete monitoring of everything related to you. For centuries, the fulfillment of these verses in Revelation 13:16-18 was a mystery.

New technology for a cashless society is marching right in step with other moves toward the coming Antichrist world government.

The technological ability to operate a world-wide cashless economic system is now being worked on. Marching in step with this new technology is a propaganda war to eliminate cash to transform the world into a cashless society.

Let’s take a look at some of the new technology that is preparing the world for the coming 666 mark of the beast financial system.

Does Google Want To Put A Chip In Our Brains?

Google engineering director Scott Huffman says that within five years people will have microphones attached to their ceilings and microchips embedded in their brains in order to perform quicker internet searches; the goal is to insert a chip inside your head for the most effortless search engine imaginable.

According to a survey by tech giant Cisco Systems, about a fourth of professionals ages

18 to 50 would leap at the chance to get a surgical brain implant that allowed them to Instantly link their thoughts to the Internet.

A chip in the brain? Didn’t we see the potential for this new technology in book of Revelation 13:16-18?

As amazing as these new technologies are, the Antichrist will not be able to fully set up his new world order until it?s all pulled together into an integrated network with universal standards?an obstacle that might not be an obstacle much longer. Governments and industry are setting international standards and expanding their electronic networking by sharing information, services, and technology. As more countries turn to the latest technology to help solve their particular social and economic problems, they expand the network?s reach and capabilities. The level of technological development now varies greatly from nation to nation, but the whole system could be ?online? in a relatively short time.

Proponents of these new technologies and cooperative efforts always point out the positive aspects, such as convenience, security, lower costs, and improved quality, speed, and efficiency in the delivery of goods and services. Little is said about the negative aspects of this public intrusion into what were once private personal affairs. Under the banner of science and technology, and more recently ?the war against terrorism,? the governments of the world are rushing to complete the Antichrist?s economic and political system for him?the very system the Bible warns against.

Don?t be duped into following this false messiah or receiving his mark to buy & sell! Follow the true Messiah, Jesus Christ. Then you?ll be on the right side, the winning side, when Jesus returns to put a stop to the Antichrist?s wickedness and set things right at the Battle of Armageddon (Revelation 14:9-11; 19:11-21).

Technocrats Will Thus Be Able To Build A Global Society And Control Its Every Facet, But In Order To Achieve These Lofty Goals, They Need To Re-Program Humans

0__J1Sl2Ktkdr8Gbli

“Well, boys, we’ve got this strange thing called THE INDIVIDUAL. Could somebody tell me what he is? He’s not conforming to our algorithms. He’s all over the place. And while we’re at it, what the hell is this IMAGINATION? It keeps slipping out of our grasp, it doesn’t fit the plan…”

PART ONE

Technocrats say they want to wipe out poverty, war, and inequality. But in order to achieve these lofty goals (or pretend to), they need to re-program humans

Technocracy is the basic agenda and plan for ruling global society from above, so we need to understand it from several angles.

Consider a group of enthusiastic forward-looking engineers in the early 20th century. They work for a company that has a contract to manufacture a locomotive.

This is a highly complex piece of equipment.

On one level, workers are required to make the components to spec. Then they must put them all together. These tasks are formidable.

On another level, various departments of the company must coordinate their efforts. This is also viewed as a technological job. Organizing is considered a technology.

When the locomotive is finished and delivered, and when it runs on its tracks and pulls a train, a great and inspiring victory is won.

And then…the engineers begin to think about the implications. Suppose the locomotive was society itself? Suppose society was the finished product? Couldn’t society be put together in a coordinated fashion? And couldn’t the “technology of organizing things” be utilized for the job?

Why bother with endlessly arguing and lying politicians? Why should they be in charge? Isn’t that an obvious losing proposition? Of course it is.

Engineers could lay out and build a future society that would benefit all people. Disease and poverty could be wiped out. Eliminating them would be part of the blueprint.

This “insight” hit engineers and technicians like a ton of bricks. Of course! All societies had been failures for the same reason: the wrong people were in charge.

Armed with this new understanding, engineers of every stripe began to see what was needed. A revolution in thinking about societal organization. Science was the new king. And science would rule.

Of course, for an engineered world to work, certain decisions would have to be made about the role of the individual. Every individual. You couldn’t have an air-tight plan if every human were free to pursue his own objectives. Too many variables. Too much confusion. Too much conflict. Well, that problem could be solved. The individual’s actions would be tailored to fit the coordinated operations of the planned society.

The individual would be “one of the components of the locomotive.” His life would be connected to other lives to produce an exemplary shape.

Yes, this could imply a few problems, but those problems could be worked out. They would have to be worked out, because the overriding goal was the forming of a world organization. What would you do if one bolt (an individual human) in one wheel of a locomotive was the wrong size? You would go back and correct the error. You would re-make the bolt.

Other people entered the game. High-echelon Globalists saw technocracy as a system they could use to control the population.

Essentially, an already-misguided vision of a future technocratic utopia was hijacked. Something bad was made much worse.

In a nutshell, this is the history of technocracy.

A locomotive is a society? No. That was the first fatally flawed idea. Everything that followed was increasingly bizarre.

Unfortunately, many people in our world believe in Globalism, if you could call a partial vague view a legitimate belief. They dreamily float on all the propaganda cover stories—greatest good for the greatest number of people; no more poverty; equality of sharing; reducing the carbon footprint; a green economy; “sustainable development”; international cooperation; allotting production and consumption of goods and services for the betterment of everyone; and all of this delivered from a central platform of altruistic guidance.

If you track down the specifics that sit under these cover stories, you discover a warped system of planning that expresses control over the global population.

The collective utopia turns out to be a sham.

Waking up is hard to do? Breaking up is hard to do? They must be done.

A workable technological fix is a very nice achievement when the project is a machine. But transferring that glow of victory to the whole of society is an illusion. Anything that calls itself education would tackle the illusion as the first order of business.

Engineering society requires engineering humans.

That is the fatal flaw.

It’s called mind control.

PART TWO

Any genuine artist, any builder of communities, any sane activist, any honorable visionary stands outside technocracy, and is not part of this program.

Instead, his thrust is toward more individual freedom and a more open society with greater decentralization of power.

Decentralization is the key.

The use of technology does not imply living inside its control. The use of technology does not imply that society should be laid out like a giant machine with fitted parts.

Those futurists who have offered “overall plans” for the disposition of society generally ignore or sidestep the issue of who is going to administer the plan. To say this is an error is a vast understatement.

Where is one far-reaching center of power in our world that would run society?

All such centers of power are, first and foremost, dedicated to their own survival. And after that, they are dedicated to control of the territory they believe they own. THE INDIVIDUAL is a messy thing that needs to be sidelined or dealt with as a disruptive element.

I speak to those people who understand that the idea of the free, independent, powerful, and creative individual is being sidelined, shelved, and sent down the memory hole. This is no accident. This isn’t just a devolutionary trend. Technocrats see this as a necessary action, in order to “clean up” their equation for the civilization they’re building. The individual is a slippery variable that throws a monkey wrench into formulas.

PART THREE

Imagination never dies.

It belongs to the individual. It isn’t property of the group.

It enables solutions that eradicate problems and get out ahead of problems before they raise their heads.

Time and time again, the individual, as he wends his way through life, encounters persons and organizations that consider imagination a negative. In the clearly defined shapes of society, imagination must take a back seat to planning.

Is the individual resistant to such manipulations, or does he give in?

This is the key question.

Does the individual view society as an operation that can potentially lift up individuals and empower them? Or does he give in to the idea that society should create more and more dependent people?

The individual can be a source of spreading freedom, or he can defend the notion that there are an endless number of “entitlements” that must be honored.

Technocracy promotes entitlements as a doorway into the future. Its ultimate entitlement goes this way: you have the right to be re-programmed to believe you have a slot in the future world; we will make this slot as attractive as possible; you will serve the overall good as we engineer it.

That is the fundamental justification for the Welfare State. It’s the justification for a future technocratic policy which will assign citizens energy quotas. A citizen would be permitted to consume a set amount of energy in a given time period. (So-called smart meters are a step in that direction. The meters enable more specific measurements of energy consumption.)

This is how technocracy views the future…your future.

The ultimate technocratic vision? Your brain is a processor, and your brain is your mind. That’s all your mind is. Therefore, connecting your brain to a super-computer, or to the Cloud, will magically expand your mind and make it “more than human.”

You will become trans-human. A hybrid of human and machine.

This is the fairy tale to end all fairy tales.

It’s wishful fantasy dressed up as science.

The idea is: you will become More. You will overcome the limits and problems associated with being an individual.

Every individual will receive the same information and the same answers and the same solutions from the Cloud. AUTOMATICALLY.

This is the programmer’s wet dream.

Technocrats will thus be able to build a global society and control its every facet.

That’s the revolution.

The counter-revolution is YOU.

The free individual.

Never forget it.

The Winds of War is Coming to The World And to America on Many Levels And it Cannot be Stopped

The winds of war are now blowing around the world. One day we will look back on these days with longing as one would look back on the gentle breezes of summer as the hurricane blows outside.

The winter season of the fourth turning is increasing with intensity as most people are fooled into believing that summer is just a few days off. When the winds become deadly and the snow begins to pile up, many will not be prepared to care for themselves. They will find themselves helpless and unprepared for this new weather system. Many will die and many more will suffer as they are cut off from the supplies and materials they depend on for normal living. They will become immobile and have little communication to tell them what to do. When the weather has them at their most vulnerable, the wolves will begin to show up at their door.

It cannot be over emphasized as to the amount of danger America is facing. We are being systematically cut off and separated from our allies and will eventually stand alone to face the fury of the hurricane that approaches. We are currently being set up to take a fall that some hope will be the end of this nation as we know it. The treason and treachery being perpetrated on this nation is a result of the mutation of the population from ants to grasshoppers. We are about to get exactly what we voted for and most people do not understand what that means.

Our birthright has been sold for a hand full of magic beans that will turn out to be rancid leftovers from someone’s failed business adventures. The wealth this nation has amassed over the decades is rapidly dwindling and will suddenly disappear in its entirety as the nation sleeps one night in the near future. The masses will awake one morning in a strange new land that holds no future for them or their children. They will be dumbstruck as to how they got there. The warnings will have been dismissed as insane talk by delusional people that don’t conform to societies norms.

It will be these few delusional, insane people that will determine the future of the once great nation. They will be the only ones that understand the dangers and are prepared to deal with the deadly winter weather. When the snow piles up they will have supplies and heat. When the wolves appear at the door they will have the weapons to fight them off. When the winds blow away the shelters of society the few will be safe in their structures reinforced to handle the tempest.

Those that deny the coming weather will be laid naked before it and will pay the price. No amount of facts or pleading will change the mind of most of these grasshoppers until it is too late.

There is a storm approaching and measures must be taken before it is too late to prepare. Just as you would prepare for a hurricane, the population must lay in stores of food and supplies to maintain their standard of living for the duration of the destruction. They must make sure they are in a safe location that will not get brown away or inundated with water from the storm surge. They must have the means to provide heat and cook food when the power system goes down. They must be able to protect themselves from any wolves that appear in any form. They must be prepared to rebuild after the storm passes. They must be prepared to weather this storm for 10 to 20 years until it blows itself out.

War is being fomented in the Middle East and in Europe and when it comes the U.S. will be hard pressed to survive it. Our military is being downsized, weapons systems are being reduced and many senior commanders are being fired for dubious reasons at best. The civil population is being systematically impoverished while government operatives tell them the nation is strong and getting stronger. Our manufacturing base has been dismantled and over 17% of our food is imported today. We have bankers that are stealing hard assets with fiat funny money and plan to steal peoples savings with new government regulations and laws. We are on the verge of losing reserve currency status and our banking system as we know it.

We are being inundated by foreigners that seek government entitlements and refuse to assimilate the American culture or language further dividing the civil population into domestic tribes hostile to one another. We have terrorist training camps within our borders and a lack of border control. We have members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the highest levels of our government and leaders that are ignorant at best and treasonous at worst.

In 1996 Thomas Chittum wrote a book called Civil War Two where he describes the breakup of America into ethnic regions. Many of the things he wrote about are evident today in society and spell doom for this nation as it is, even if we were not threatened with world war we would be headed for balkanization. The increasingly dysfunctional nature of this nation as it is will provide its citizens with many difficulties to overcome in the coming years.

War is coming to the world and to America on many levels and it cannot be stopped. The best anyone can do is to prepare and try to stay out of the way of the most serious fighting and bide their time until they can get the upper hand in their locality. The world is about to change in a very radical way and many are not prepared for it either physically or mentally. The forecast has been given and the storm flags are up.
