In Defense of Anthony Weiner

173293907-new-york-city-mayoral-candidate-anthony-weiner-attends-jpg-crop-promo-xlarge2

It is fashionable to join in on the condemnation of Anthony Weiner latest sexting scandal, but some serious questions should be raised.

The details of the alleged scandal are more or less the same across the entire range of mainstream media (which of course is one reason to question the narrate).

These details include Anthony sending sexual messages to a 15-year-old girl in South Carolina, who purportedly started this as research and claimed it was consensual.

Different levels of state and federal law enforcement are beginning an investigation, to later determine if charges will be pressed.

Most likely, Anthony Weiner is the victim of a hoax – but not the one he suspects, by the girl. He was set up by the masters of false-flags and constructed scandals. Here is why.

The photographs of the alleged 15-year old victim are not consistent on two accounts.

First, one of the photographs used by the press is of a woman who is not 15 years old. Anyone with even the slightest ability to “read” a photograph should be able to feel that the photo here is of a grown woman: the hair, the skin and the posture, and the overall impression.

Second, a different photograph of the girl is not the same girl (woman, really) as depicted above. Below, she has different hair and smoother skin, etc…

Third, anyone with even the slightest ability to “read” a photograph should be able to feel that the photo here is fakery. Of course the subjects are posing, but there is a second layer of deception. It does not feel right. Why not just take a flash photo if the faces would be blurred out anyway? Why set up the photographer’s light, which reflects of the father’s belly?

Besides, what are they doing in the conference room of a hotel? It would have made more sense to be in an attorney’s office, which normally uses different chairs. Something is not right.

Additionally, right after this scandal broke the father supposedly declares that he wants anonymity. So what does he do? Pose for a photo with his daughter. It makes no sense.

The set-up reminds me of the television series “To Catch a Predator,” which of course snared some sketchy guys but which also employed entrapment. Grown policewomen were in a trailer somewhere, pretending to be 13-year-old girls. The Supreme Court has already defined entrapment as including, among other things, “planting the seed of criminality” in a person’s mind.

I seriously doubt that this 15-year-old North Carolina girl even exists.

This is all a hoax. Anthony Weiner’s attorney should insist, if it comes to this, that the prosecution procures the girl under oath, in three-dimansional reality, with lie-detector tests, and produce a full excavation of the girl’s history since birth. Then they can determine if she is an authentic person or not.

No victim, no crime.

Still, Anthony Weiner is clearly afflicted with some kind of obsession that has taken over his life, and that is unfortunate for him. This level of an addiction must be a torment.

There is also stupidity involved, as his estranged wife, Huma Abedin, (politics aside) is one of the sexiest women in Washington (my type, anyway).

So many wasted opportunities.

Anthony Weiner is probably the victim of an elaborate, ongoing hoax, with the usual masters of deception watching his moves every step of the way, howling with laughter, and amassing enough “evidence” to haul it out into the public and into the courts, where they can mock us all.

Tale of Two Cities

_87552618_fourupcomp

People of all colors have been exploited by an economic and political system that – while once geared toward controlled, incremental growth – now seeks to siphon any remaining wealth from the bottom and middle of society to the very top.

The financial crash of 2008, and resulting bailouts, provided final proof (if any more proof was needed) that American society is run by predators and parasites, by half a dozen or so cults, separate but united in a sociopathic agenda. True, this is a system based on exploitation, but the overall goal is to establish complete and total control over the population.

In this system, minorities have paid a high price, particularly African Americans. Every major city in America is sharply divided along racial lines. Some Blacks have broken out into the middle and upper classes, but not the overall majority.

police-dogs-attack-demonstrators-birmingham-protests

Many inner cities, including parts of Charlotte, are grim places to live. My winter stay last year in the worst section of Brooklyn was an eye-opener. It was mostly liquor stores and pawn shops, run by slumlords and loan sharks, with petty drug dealers trying to get a piece of the pie.

This is a street-level distortion of how American society is grotesquely run at the very top. Therefore: as above, so below. And the dividing line is the law. Those on top are “above” are above the law; those “below” become raw material for a prison-industrial complex.

Along with this geographic division come other divisions: in education, employment and in general opportunities in life.

Because the Past still carries itself forward into the Present, because the Past matters, there remains “institutional racism.”  There remains “structural violence.” The habits and social conditioning of the police are still operative. Hence the criminalization of traffic stops and mass incarceration for petty crimes.

Media coverage of urban upheavals is superficial. The liberal media, such as CNN and Huffingtonpost, like to sensationalize the protests or riots, with a “Live at 5” mentality. Some in this media have a patronizing attitude as well, and others downplay incidents of violence.

Meantime, the alt-right media, including Infowars and several other large sites, pays little or no attention to the underlying problem of race relations in America. This reporting is completely ahistorical, without context. The alt-right cherry picks from a broad protest movement. Protests or riots? I suppose one man’s “protests” are another man’s “riots.”

Of course, out of any 10 people, 1 or 2 will be a little crazy. If 1,000 people show up for a BLM protest, a number will be inclined to say and do extreme things. The alt-right media focuses on these cases of extremism or nonsense, using them to slander the entire movement – which is further condemned by the alt-right as a George Soros puppet show. Really?

Despite Soros having thrown cash at top players, I doubt it trickled down into the BLM grass roots, where most people have probably never heard of George Soros. Soros is not behind every curtain.

People are showing up at these events for one reason only: They are “Pissed Off Black People.” It’s pretty simple.

Meantime, the underlying structural violence producing this level of anger in the first place remains ignored. What do the alt-right commentators want the African American community to do? That they should return to their Bantustan neighborhoods? That they should stand for the national anthem, godammit… That they should know their place in ‘Murica… It’s the same message promulgated back in the 60s and 70s by what was then called the “white power structure.”

In a better world, a complex set of economic, political and social systems would allow for creative action and inclusive prosperity. This future would delete the primitive “them and us” software of the collective unconscious, and instead encourage empathy and cooperation.

The future could include an expansion of the “American Dream.” But this will require looking past the alarmist headlines to the real problems.

Refreshing Channel

Lift the Veil

Nathan Stolpman, of Lift the Veil, is taking an interesting approach when analyzing the media: question everything – and everyone.

I periodically visit his new youtube channel (below). Despite being shot in a garage with his cat in the background, it has en engaging style. It works. A funny and attractive co-host sometimes appears.

Image result

I’m not going to endorse or vouch for everything Nathan says. I’ve only seen a few recent videos. I do not know the backstory of Lift the Veil.

I simply appreciate his reminder that more of us should question our basic assumptions, and I appreciate Nathan placing his own assumptions under scrutiny. In the video below, Nathan made a valid point about our tendency to accept mainstream media at face value. He can be refreshingly introspective and self-critical.

Everything should be examined and re-examined, if we are to get closer to any truth. There are objective truths in this world (I hope!), but they seem elusive.

I should probably question all news more carefully, mindful that the plutocrats pushing it usually follow the Law of Reversal: All truth must be transformed into lies, and all lies into truth. Most news is just vomited forth.

It seems that “the news” is not about providing information and knowledge: it is about controlling minds. The more I subject that hypothesis to scrutiny, the stronger it gets. I need to enter a round of breaking apart the machinery in my own mind, down to the last nut and bolt, and holding each item up to the glare of sunlight.

Nathan critiques Infowars and calls it “Dis-Infowars.” I’ve critiqued Infowars as well for its steady corporatization, while (like Nathan) still having a personal affinity and respect for the many presenters involved.

One paradox is this: Infowars automatically questions everything mainstream media says about Hillary Clinton (with some reason); simultaneously, Infowars does not question mainstream media regarding many if not most recent terrorist (“false-flag”) events.

Knowing what we know about mainstream reporting for the Clinton-Trump contest, why would we ever believe anything the mainstream media ever said? Ever?

Infowars did not subject the New York attacks to immediate scrutiny but rather parroted mainstream media and FBI talking points by taking their assumptions at face value. An article explaining that Democrats are blaming Russia does not reveal what is likely the true nature of this event (which is instead hidden).

Repeatedly claiming that the liberal media avoids linking the attacks to Muslims because, well, it’s the liberal media, hides the truth with a second lie, a second protective layer.

The recent New York attacks include two documented crisis actors and obvious numerology, but most of the critical media ends up talking about Muslims. Nathan makes a strong case on this point.

To be sure, Infowars maintains that 911 and a few other incidents were inside jobs, but the majority of recent “terror events” have been accepted at face value. This raises the possibility that Infowars used 911 to gain street cred in order to eventually channel DHS and Pentagon propaganda.

One commercial on Infowars has a vendor selling an immunity health product, to counter what Muslim migrants to the US are supposedly importing: “parasites.” Give me a break.

I’m no fan of Islam or any organized religion, and in the West, wherever Sharia rears its ugly head it should be defeated. Mark Passio is right, and word “religion” is derived from the “religare,” which means “to bind.” Religion is designed to bind, or hold back, human consciousness. Arguably, religions contain some insightful half-truths, but how old was Jesus when he died? 33? There’s your hint right there.

So mainstream media combines with much of “alternative” media regarding some basic assumptions of who is behind these recent attacks.

In the larger picture, and involving a wide swath of media and government, echoing the Party Line regarding “terrorist” events stokes fear. Fear is being grafted onto our reptilian complex, evoking a “them and us” response, (really a “them or us” response), that humans inherited from fighting off Neanderthal apex predators. An interesting quote about the relatively new Neanderthal Predation theory:

“NP theory reveals that Eurasian Neanderthals hunted, killed and cannibalized early humans for 50,000 years in an area of the Middle East known as the Mediterranean Levant. Because the two species were sexually compatible, Eurasian Neanderthals also abducted and raped human females”(link below).

What I’m saying is that Islamophobia, or any fear of “the other,” is very primitive.

Nathan suggests that all this fear mongering falls into a trap, perhaps unwittingly, or that it has been part of the globalist machinery all along.

Meantime, there is a much-needed proliferation of different voices and opinions on the Internet, which is a good thing. Lift the Veil appears to be one small part of the growing complexification of dissent, and I hope to report on other new efforts as well.

Here is a link to Nathan’s webpage and a video below. The video begins with a statement with which Nathan disagrees.

Europe Unleashed

Image result

Libya

Recently, the European Union criticized President Dutarte of the Philippines (a sovereign country) for not doing more to control vigilantes fighting methamphetamine dealers. Dutarte rightly gave the Europeans specific instructions, regarding what they can do to themselves.

Imagine, the Eurocrats are lecturing the Philippines, which has never invaded anyone and in fact has been invaded by at least three powers (Spain, United States, and Japan).

In turn, the Eurocrats promoted and participated in, through NATO, the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq (1.5 million killed), Libya and Syria.

It is high time that the prime ministers, presidents and power brokers in the western world pay the financial costs of reconstruction in the Middle East.

In a better world, sovereign courts would identify the people responsible for the interventions (mostly public figures, but also behind-the-scenes billionaires using the machinery of politics).

By the way, many of these European public figures toured Libya on the eve of the problem, to give Gaddafi the mafioso “kiss of death” before he was killed. It must be harder, in this day and age, for these Eurocrats to “earn their bone” by helping kill someone, so that they can sit at the table with the big boys and girls.

I guess they got to share credit for Gaddafi’s head.

Anyways. These courts would then confiscate most of their wealth (billions, trillions) and establish a new “Marshall Plan” to invest in rebuilding the Middle East. Simply put, the courts would seize the assets of these culprits (bank accounts, property) and direct it to regional development projects that would be 100% transparent and accountable.

A Middle East on the right track – flush with new funds for infrastructure – would quickly attract many of the migrants who were forced to leave their homes in the first place. And I mean, they were “forced” to leave by the sheer imperative of survival. Move to Europe or stay and be killed.

The western role in fomenting rebellions in Libya and Syria is well documented. Perhaps their new blame game, against the Philippines, is their way of distracting us from Europe’s complicity in the destruction of the Middle East – one that goes all the way back to Napoleon in Egypt.

Below, Europe’s Final Solution for the Middle East:

Disarm the Police

Tulsa Police Kill Unarmed Black Man Terrence Crutcher

(Latest question: Did police plant drugs in the car after the fact? Not that drugs can be used to kill officers…)

Did Mr. Crutcher have a weapon? No.

I’m beginning to think that, in a better world, police around the country should be disarmed.

Of course, at home and off duty they retain their Second Amendment right. But why should an officer approaching my car, for an expired sticker or any reason, ever have a weapon drawn?

Taking guns away from the police will de-escalate the situation. If cops cannot handle the stress of responding to a stalled vehicle (where an unarmed driver was shot with his hands in the air) then they should not be policemen and policewomen in the first place.

Lethal force should only be employed by SWAT teams and other highly-trained officers, who respond to truly violent crime. And every jurisdiction has SWAT. So why arm ordinary police?

Regular policework is not for everyone, granted. But at this point, with the body count so much higher for civilians than for police, disarming the police would obviously keep our country safer. They cannot be trusted with weapons – unless we are willing to accept a traffic-related murder every few days.

Disarming police would help prevent, in the long run, police from being on the business end of retaliation. While the retaliation against law enforcement is not justifiable, it is an understandable reaction to their having gone rogue. Across the nation, ordinary police forces have been militarized, both in weapons and mindset.

Meantime, most of the people outraged about Kaepernick remain silent… I can hear the crickets chirping.

Civilization 2050 (reposted)

Civilization 2050

1 Natural Law    2 Empowerment    3 New Economy    4 Complexity

Introduction

The survival and progress of western civilization depends on many things.

We need new cities and more efficient energy and agriculture. We need to harmonize high-tech civilization with nature. We need planetary defense and human colonies in space. For this, we need new political and economic systems.

And for this, we need people to be free.

These pages describe 20 realistic strategies for the progress of western civilization: Civilization 2050.

The first part, Natural Law, lays the foundation for individual sovereignty and rational order.

The second part, Empowerment, explains the political changes required; this is closely related to the third part, New Economy.

Finally, the fourth section, Complexity, describes how natural law, empowerment and a new economy all transform western civilization into a decentralized “complex adaptive system.”

Natural Law

Natural law was first recognized by the ancient Greeks, and it echoes in Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence. Natural law holds that certain rights and values are inherent in the Universe and can be understood through human reason.

Natural law includes the law of cause and effect, the law of attraction, and moral law, which binds people to the principle of doing no harm. Understanding and respecting natural law creates a rational order, as a manifested good, in contrast to the chaos of the world today, where rights are trampled upon.

Indeed, sovereign individuals are required for meaningful group solidarity and real cooperation. Their personal responsibility resonates upwards and outwards.

The concept of “individual sovereignty” is slandered by mainstream politics and the media. They depict “sovereign individuals” as people who think that they do not need a license to drive a car, or certification to perform surgery. This is nonsense. Driving and surgery, among other things, are privileges that have to be earned.

Simply put, sovereign individuals do not tolerate the violence or coercion initiated to deprive them – or others – of all of their natural rights. These deprivations, these theft of rights, are always illegitimate.

Sovereign individuals cannot have their civil liberties restricted, or be prosecuted, unless they have violated the rights of others, as ascertained under due process.

Sovereign individuals cannot be taxed or conscripted, because those infringements depend on someone (the state) using the threat of violence.

Individual sovereignty leads to a wide range of what is right, moral, and correct – wider than those currently allowed by governments, organized religions, and other manifestations of the control grid.

In order for individual sovereignty to mean anything, to be significant, it requires enormous personal responsibility. It requires continually reflecting on thoughts and actions, and regarding “free will” as a gift for bettering the condition of ourselves and others.

Empowerment

Western civilization has witnessed slow and steady enfranchisement, with voting rights expanding to include lower-class men, women, and minorities.

But what has voter enfranchisement done for us lately?

Legislatures across the western world are useless and corrupt. Their sham debates happen within a narrow spectrum of discourse. They rubber-stamp orders handed to them by their masters, bailing out the banks and endorsing one foreign intervention after another. No wonder the approval rate of the US Congress is below 10%.

The next logical step for western societies is a transition from representative to participatory democracy. This can happen at local, state and national levels: as below, so above.

If we affirm our rights, within a republic, sovereign citizens participate in what the ancient Greeks called the “polis.” With today’s technology, this would look different. Participatory budgeting. Open and transparent systems. Crowdsourcing.

With digital networks, and with the wisdom of the crowd, citizens replace congresses and parliaments. This is not mob rule. Executive and judicial branches remain operative in a system of checks and balances – and within constitutions that more strongly defend civil liberties.

Today, everything government does is secret but citizens’ lives are transparent (to government). This situation needs to be reversed, with public structures being transparent, and private lives remaining private.

New constitutions can protect individual and popular sovereignty within a system of separation of powers, checks and balances, civil rights, and civil liberties.

Civil liberties include all 10 Amendments in the Bill of Rights, with new “freedoms from” to include forced or coerced medications, relocations, and other modern violations of natural law.

Imagine, the 1787 Constitution prohibited excessive power in the executive branch, but that is what we have today. The 1787 Constitution prohibited violations of civil liberties, but that is what we have today.

The 1787 Constitution did not create a permanent standing army and required wars to be declared. Now, by contrast, we bounce from one undeclared war to another.

Most recently, we see western militaries and intelligence services helping Al Qaeda overthrow a secular government in Libya, and arming up ISIS to overthrow a secular government in Syria. This is the foreign policy of chaos – as if an army of demons was unleashed to run things.

Nor can western governments provide security to their own citizens, as demonstrated every few days. Having created the problem, they still insist on being part of the solution.

It is time to restore national security concerns to citizen militias that are, as the Founders intended, “well-regulated” by themselves.

These are the basic principles of a political transition:

  1. Individual Sovereignty
  1. Constitutional conventions
  1. Civil liberties
  1. Participatory democracy
  1. Citizen militias

Much more change is needed. Most police and first responders are professionals deserving respect, and significant salary increases, but accountable policing needs to become embedded in community oversight.

The United States in particular suffers from a criminal justice system that systematically violates natural rights from coast to coast, and African-American and Hispanics are often targets.

It is possible to remedy the abuses with a seven-step plan, listed below by continuing the earlier number count.

  1. Immediate end to the war on drugs, and a focus on medicalization and rehabilitation.
  1. Immediate end to the militarization of law enforcement.
  1. Immediate end to defendant-funded courts and mandatory sentencing.
  1. Immediate end to private prisons.
  1. Immediate end to unwarranted and warrantless search and seizure.
  1. Immediate end to capital punishment.
  1. Immediate release, and record expungement, of all offenders incarcerated for drugs, prostitution, and petty, victimless crimes.

One reason all the political and judicial reforms listed above are needed is because they are a prerequisite for restoring natural rights and empowering citizens. The country needs to roll back the systematic abuse of citizens.

Empowered citizens, organizing from below – and offered a general, inspiring set of goals by higher levels of public and private leadership – have the inclination, energy, capability, and creativity to make progress.

New Economy: Energy, Land, Sea & Space

Before outlining a new economy, it is necessary to perform a vivisection on the existing one, opening up its bowels, and letting its cancerous entrails spill out.

Western economies – of unemployment, debt and austerity – syphon wealth from the bottom to the top of the pyramid, just to benefit a range of oligarchic factions that have captured governments. Their next move is to create a global corporatocracy, using so-called “free trade agreements” to formalize their positions above governments and beyond the reach of law.

These economies, supposedly based on capitalism and free enterprise, actually privatize profits and socialize losses. Witness the endless corporate welfare and bank bailouts, while the middle classes are pushed into a high-tech, neo-feudal serfdom.

Everything about these economies is rigged. The creation of money is rigged for those at the top. The stock market is rigged. The value of major currencies, and of gold and silver – all rigged. Even inflation is rigged. Inflation is timed, just another weaponized strategy to periodically destroy wealth and reposition financial power. Elections, too, are rigged.

There is absolutely nothing about the trans-Atlantic economic and financial system, and even the political system, that is not a lie.

Governmental debts skyrocket, all of it presumable to be paid by taxes that will never be collected in sufficient quantity. This is an illogical system, even by the standards of their own so-called logic. Untold trillions in debt.

Current estimates of the world’s “derivatives” are 1.5 Quadrillion dollars. This is a measure of how much speculation has infected the world. If they go down, they hope to pull down everyone else with them.

A transition to an economy based on natural law and citizen empowerment would, of course, entail the cancellation of much or all sovereign debt. A transition would also prioritize Main Street assets and obligations before those of the top 1%.

It is possible to have a new economy allowing for bottom-up development that transforms cities and infrastructure on Earth, and that colonizes the solar system.

This economy can be briefly outlined below, although the exact details would be emergent. That is, the details regarding the structures and processes of a new economy would emerge from adaptation – from the interaction and negotiations among all layers of public and private organization.

There are many apologists of the Old Order. There are many advocates of a centralized and pyramidal New World Order. They deserve no explanations of a new economy. It matters not what they think, say or do. Their protests and lamentations should fall on deaf ears.

These are the defenders of a system that sacrifices the wellbeing of entire nations on the altar of their own greed. They are invested in the emerging police state to protect their positions in Orwellian and fascist control grids. These Champions of Oligarchy, these lunatic sociopaths, have piggy-backed for too long on systems that are corrupt, predatory and parasitic.

Looking forward, taking civilization to the next level requires new infrastructure, increasing economic productivity and the standard of living. First it is possible to explain what this looks like, and then how it can work.

Taking civilization to the next level requires becoming more efficient with energy. It is important to increase the energy-flux density, so that we derive more energy transfer from smaller and cheaper units – more bang for the buck, with less ecological damage.

There are many promising new sources of energy. Nuclear power is also one attractive option – if based in space, with the energy then transferred to earth, which is technically feasible. Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima should be lessons learned, regarding the unpredictable combination of human error and nature.

In the United States, a specific vision has been in place since Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy, elaborated by the US Army Corps of Engineers. This vision is called the North American Water and Power Alliance, or NAWAPA. Today the concept of NAWAPA is being advanced by Mr. Lyndon LaRouche among others.

NAWAPA redesigns the water management and power grid of the United States, creating a vast, interlocking system of canals, tunnels, highways and now high-speed rail. Today, modified, revised and higher-tech versions of NAWAPA assimilate environmental concerns.

This plan reduces erosion and carves out enormous areas of the West to remain untouched. As a result, NAWAPA moves to a new and higher balance between culture and nature.

Obviously, NAWAPA creates millions of new jobs, many in private sector. NAWAPA requires national vision but perhaps more importantly, it requires local and state coalitions.

New cities include urban gardening, cheaper energy, and more transportation options, the last of which are being pioneered by Tesla Motors, led by Elon Musk. New cities, and redesigning existing ones, increase livability, standards of living, and economic efficiency.

Hyperions-by-Vincent-Callebaut-3-889x667

The Venus Project, led by Jacque Fresco, includes inspiring designs, and other architects are also working on the concept of the new city.

There are many workable designs for floating, maritime cities, with some designs advanced by the Seasteading Institute.

9a79bfc11e5415c49ffa24c14310d5fc (1)

These cities can be used as a base for ocean clean-up, fishing, scientific research and the experimental colonization of challenging environments.

Of course, an upgraded western civilization includes a robust space program.

AC75-1886f

Also, what we know today as the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines, would pivot from disastrous and useless foreign interventions to instead protecting the Earth against asteroids, building and manning new space stations and lunar colonies, and beginning to terraform Mars.

Again, Civilization 2050 depends on an empowered citizenry, multiple and layered public networks, and coalitions of private sector firms.

A new economy respects private property, but it does not unconditionally worship private property, sacrificing everything on its altar.

Private property is respected when there is rightful and lawful possession of that property; when there is effective control of its usage; and when the commercial use of property responsibly accounts for the interests of stakeholders.

When stockholders are the only people whose interests are taken into account then we have what we have today: a race to the bottom, a hollowing out of the middle class, and economies centered only on empty, mindless consumerism for its own sake: brand-name schlock, just to keep their Machine turning.

A new economy does not automatically gift money to the largest banks, the largest corporations, and to the federal government, in the hope that it trickles down to the underclasses. That is what the current economy does. We have a Wall Street economy, not a Main Street economy.

A new economy precision injects funds horizontally across different layers of both the public and private spheres, to maintain human security and fuel development in open and transparent systems. (We will address monetary concerns momentarily.)

A new economy leaves no one behind, but not by promoting dependency, and not by tolerating subsidized sloth. That is not how a new civilization is built. This is an economy of personal responsibility, where no able-bodied adult gets something for nothing.

Considering the huge scale of work to be done, considering the monumental task of building new infrastructure and new cities, this new economy assumes “full employment” with work available in the public or the private sphere.

Considering the huge scale of work to be done, it makes sense to offer indebted students an option, for example, of either paying back their loans normally or merging their career interests with a development project. With a decent salary.

Considering the huge scale of work to be done, it makes sense to offer undocumented migrants the option, of either returning to their countries or origin or accepting an assignment with a development project. With a decent salary.

All of this sounds ambitious? How is this to be paid for?

Let us first demolish the two assumptions behind current monetary and financial policies.

The first assumption is that the current systems in the West are legitimate. They are not. They violate natural law.

Taxation is always theft. Taxation depends upon coercion, the threat of violence, and the deprivation of property and liberty. All at gunpoint.

There are even systems of “bonds” – derived from the word “bondage” – by which governments promise to pay back their debtors with money raised from taxes. Again at gunpoint. Any inclusion of taxation, in a reformist economic plan, merely replaces one form of servitude with another. To be more exact, it would replace one form of violence with another.

How much merit does an economic system really have, if its sponsors must resort to threats? Does this sound like a system designed for us? Or for them? There are other ways to pave the roads.

A new economy can only be based on voluntarism and non-discrimination. After all, discrimination denies equal opportunity, equal access, and constitutes harm under natural law.

The second assumption – even held by many critics of the current system – is that money requires “backing” with something other than the willingness, or faith, of people to accept it.

The reality is that all money is fiat money. Again: All money is fiat money.

Mainstream economics contrasts fiat money with money backed by physical commodities such as gold or silver, falsely assuming that gold or silver have intrinsic value. They do not. This is just another layer of faith.

Many ancient cultures around the world valued jade more than gold and silver, or ivory more than gold and silver, or turtle shells more than gold or silver.

While some people derive comfort from the idea that gold and silver provide permanent and universal value, in reality their value is a cultural construct – a projection, and one with nefarious origins at that.

Who knows, maybe a century from now money will be obsolete. Maybe it makes sense to move towards multiple currencies, fracturing any possibility of hegemony.

Today, however, money is now part of human civilization for better or for worse. It can be used as a tool to dominate others, as it is now, or it can be used as energy, or fuel, to propel civilization forward.

A new economy would entail money deriving value because people have faith that, as a medium of exchange, it is the energetic currency powering up a civilization encouraging real development, a leap in human consciousness, and an enhanced possibility for the survival of the human species.

A list of eight related principles follows the number system from earlier.

  1. Increasing the energy-flux density

Complexity

Complexity is the manifested, rational order that emerges within a civilization based on natural law.

Complexity depends on increased individual freedom and increased group solidarity, thus transcending, or evolving past, existing political philosophies.

Complexity describes how systems spontaneously adapt from the bottom up (or from the outside in), without clear parameters of control, although initiative and leadership can emerge from all levels simultaneously.

Individual action scales upwards and outwards, to cities, provinces or states, and nations, and along both public and private networks. This structure mimics the nested fractals we see in natural systems.

Civilization 2050 is the opposite of social engineering. Progress emerges naturally and organically, from societies resembling complex adaptive systems.

Complexity is the ideal condition for the generation of variety, innovation, adaptation, symbiosis, and progress. Visually depicted, complexity moves the western world away from its current pyramidal shape – and towards the shape of a de-centralized network, where, necessarily, portions temporarily converge around a task.

GLOBALISM      versus      COMPLEXITY

For western civilization, a complex adaptive system fluctuates between periods of centralization and decentralization. Thus, the system is never really in a state of “equilibrium” as envisioned by classical thinking.

On the largest scale, with cooperative politics and new, people-powered economies, we move from nations to western civilization, which then engages with other, autonomous civilizations in a decentralized world system.

Non-western civilizations determine their own trajectories: evolution depends upon variety generation.

At this highest level of the world system and specifically of the world-city system there are no politics; there is only trade, collaborative projects, and educational exchange.

Conclusion

Most likely, today’s prevailing system in the West – economic and political – will come down under the weight of its own absurd cruelty, much like the Berlin Wall.

This system will someday collapse so rapidly that its defenders – both “order givers” and “order followers” – will be dumbfounded and immobilized by the sheer numbers of people dancing on globalist rubble.

Fortunately, the use of force to initiate systemic change would be unnecessary. Still, it is important to note, as a matter of principle, that those who deprive citizens of their natural rights, by resorting to coercion and the threat of violence, deserve only one warning before the use of force.

Illegitimate violence and coercion always invite a legitimate response: lethal force. Most likely, this will all remain a matter of principle.

Today, the most serious crisis we humans face today is not an economic crisis. It is not a political crisis. It is a crisis of confusion, or memory loss, over who we really are.

Many of us have forgotten our true nature, our higher selves. We have forgotten that were never meant to be peasants, peons, serfs, subjects, or slaves.

If we recognize our individual sovereignty, and exercise free will for the good, then the rest will follow, and our perception and consciousness will expand exponentially .

It is time to wake up from our long slumber.

The current Democratic and Republican contest is being pitched as Establishment versus anti-Establishment, and that is only true on one level. The power elites would prefer Clinton but would happily get behind Trump in the end.

If Trump was truly a threat to the system he would be entirely ignored. Instead the 2016 campaign is being turned by the media into a Barnum-and-Bailey, Divide-and-Conquer Carnival.

The power elites would be reassured by several aspects of a Trump presidency, if one were to come about. True, Trump sensibly rejects globalist trading agreements, but once in office he would surely be boxed in on that score – and largely because at this point reforming the status quo is an “all or nothing” proposition. Half-measures will be defeated and reversed.

The Federal Reserve. Trump would replace the Chairman and perhaps audit the Fed, but the monetary regime would remain in place (government borrowing money as debt from a private cartel, and then injecting this into the economy from the top). Ron Paul is right, and this is the most central question of our time. We are either citizens or debt slaves. By contrast, Stein’s promise to “democratize” the Fed suggests a more radical change.

Federal Agencies/Mass Surveillance. Trump would have to grow the bureaucracies of DHS, NSA, FBI, Border Patrol, etc.., and so forth, in order to implement a strict revision of immigrants and vigilance of possible terror networks (many of which are initially founded by the intelligence services mentioned, but that is another topic). Stein’s campaign includes immigration reform that is not statist, and ending mass incarceration, etc.

Foreign Policy. Trump correctly recognizes that the current administration set the Middle East on fire but then imagines focused interventions to put out that fire. The game in the Middle East was never intended to be won by anyone; it was meant to be played in perpetuity… Enemies become allies; allies become enemies, and they both appear and re-appear, morphing along forever.

At the center of this conflict model is Israel, to which Trump has pledged extreme allegiance (despite pledging allegiance to the United States). Stein would end the blank checks and move the US towards neutrality (the only sensible position).

As has been argued on these pages previously, Jill Stein’s platform represents the sharpest challenge to the status quo in terms of domestic and foreign policy. This is why the Green Party is being ignored by the mainstream media even more than Ralph Nader was ignored in previous years.

So in 2016 as in previous years, the country is left with two mainstream candidates. However, the mainstream and alternative media are both depicting one of them (Trump) as anti-Establishment. Trump is a likeable person and makes sense on many issues, and he writes excellent books, but he is not ultimately anti-Establishment for the three reasons noted above.

The “alternative” media is only partly “alternative.” Consider Infowars, for example, which is often commendable, but if the rumors are true of entanglements with entertainment conglomerates, or connections with long-term intelligence operations, then Infowars is participating in yet another Coke-Pepsi contest, and it is steering many of the angry masses, by design, into a dead end cul-de-sac. 

Heck, even if the rumors are not true: that is what Infowars is doing.

Infowars offers no explanation for their epic, long-distance journey from Ron Paul libertarianism to Nixonian conservatism. It just happened I guess.

Take 33!

Multiple independent sources are analyzing the Clinton Rally In Greensboro NC.

Please compare the two photographs below of the same event.

In the first photograph, the flag is quite far back; in the second photo (of the same event) the flag is immediately behind Clinton, and the video suggests that she is actually speaking from a position closer to the flag.

Above: The flag is 10 – 15 yards behind Clinton.

Below: The flag is so close that reporters shadows are cast on both her and the flag.

Also, the crowd – of a segment of the video, strangely – appears to be fake.

People’s cellphone videos, their screens, revealed scenes different from the reality they were in (or were not in). The crowd has probably been pasted in for that segment, as detailed in the 3 minute video (below).

None of the other candidates – Stein, Trump, Johnson, are pulling these stunts, or allowing their handlers (if they have them) to pull them.

So my theory is that she makes a brief appearance in front of the real crowd but saves the speech for the green room (no hecklers, no coughing). Then, the two scenes are spliced together, along with a crowd of cardboard cut-outs.

Mainstream reporters will not pick up on this, as they fake their locations all the time with green screens.

This is all practice of course. In the future, if the usual suspects are not derailed, political candidates will be completely holographic.

Meantime, how they love to mock.

If you cannot see through this deception, you are being mocked.

Here is a 3-minute video, and it is revealing.

Also: Who is she pointing to? – Or should I say: To whom is she pointing?
