Awakening to reality

awake orwellIt takes courage to be a truth seeker, and more so to be a truth speaker. Many will continue to seek the comfortable shelter of mass delusion rather than disturbing reality.

Most truth speakers will stand alone in many instances. They will be mocked, demonized and punished as a reward for speaking the truth.

“For the habitual truth-teller and truth-seeker, indeed, the whole world has very little liking. He is always unpopular”. H. L. Mencken

“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it”    Mohandas Gandhi

“I call that mind free which protects itself against the usurpations of society, and which does not cower to human opinion: Which refuses to be the slave or tool of the many or of the few, and guards its empire over itself as nobler than the empire of the world.” William Ellery Channing

“I rather be a stupid person wanting clarification and answers, in order to be wiser, than be a stupid person that blindly believes the lies they are told, without question.”
Shannon Alder

Contrail vs Chemtrails – It’s truly baffling that so many people either don’t notice what’schemtrails in the sky above them, or choose to believe it’s normal and natural. Although this site has had over 27 million views, there remains hundreds of millions of people who haven’t taken the time to do their own research.

JFK – I was in high school in St. Louis when JFK was assassinated. This well planned and executed conspiracy (and coup d’état) was blurred and obfuscated both by the Warren Report and the widespread apathy and cognitive dissonance of a shell shocked and indoctrinated population. Well over five decades have passed and most, if not all, of those involved are now dead, many after living lives of privilege, wealth and power.

9/11 – The motherland of conspiracies  is very transparent and obvious to anyone willing to be exposed to disturbing truths by taking a few hours to research it for themselves.

Nine-year old Arkin found a landmine near his house. Not knowing what it was, he picked it up and it exploded. The blast destroyed an arm, a hand and both eyes. Doctors doubt he will survive. Arkin’s family had been living as refugees for 16 years and returned home the day before this tragic accident.

Good guys vs “Terrorists” – The premise that those who are defending their country and it’s population from invading forces are patriots rather than terrorists seems pretty plain. But most Americans have always thought of themselves as bringing their fabled “freedom and democracy” to the world (as well as destroying those who threaten theirs). After years of state propaganda (presented as “history”) it’s difficult for Americans to accept, or even consider, that their country is the world’s #1 exporter of global terrorism. They are the world’s #1 arms exporter. They are directly, or through proxy, involved in dozens of illegal, immoral wars.

smedley butlerU.S. hegemony was in full force long before 9/11 and the launch of the Global War on Terror. Smedley Darlington Butler (July 30, 1881 – June 21, 1940) was a United States Marine Corps major general, the highest rank authorized at that time, and at the time of his death the most decorated Marine in U.S. history. During his 34-year career as a Marine, he participated in military actions in the Philippines, China, in Central America and the Caribbean during the Banana Wars, and France in World War I. Butler is well known for having later become an outspoken critic of U.S. wars and their consequences, as well as exposing the Business Plot, an alleged plan to overthrow the U.S. government.

Here’s a reading of Chapter One of his book “War is a Racket“. As many anti-war proponents are demonized as cowards or traitors, his credentials would make this an exercise in cowardice itself. But this was a brave man who spoke the truth based not on what he believed, but what he knew from experience. Sadly, what he exposed over 80 years ago, has only grown more pervasive, inhuman and profitable.

The business of war is more profitable now than it’s ever been. Sophisticated weapons have replaced the need for many boots on the ground, but they’re still required. Those who actively participate often find their initial patriotism and bravado replaced by the effects of PTSD.

“Soldiers of the Reich! This day you are to take part in an offensive of such importance that the whole future of the war may depend on its outcome.”
Adolf Hitler – 5th July 1943

 

“Sure, we want to go home. We want this war over with. The quickest way to get it over with is to go get the bastards who started it. The quicker they are whipped, the quicker we can go home. The shortest way home is through Berlin and Tokyo. And when we get to Berlin, I am personally going to shoot that paper hanging son-of-a-bitch Hitler. Just like I’d shoot a snake!”
General George S. Patton – (addressing to his troops before Operation Overlord) – 5th June 1944

Eerily similar, aren’t they? Different flags, anthems and language, but the same hidden hand at the controls.

And the winner is, decade after decade, those who profit from ongoing (now seeminglywar profiteers endless and global) wars. Those who die and suffer are collateral damage and easily replaced from amongst a compliant and complicit population. Only a few choose to speak the truth, but they do so on behalf of the many who cannot. These are the truly courageous ones. But their voices are drowned out by “patriotic” fervour and widespread propaganda, time after time, decade after decade.

 

 

Below is an opportunity to hear from those who’ve been directly affected by the Business of War. They believed the propaganda they were fed by those that appear at the start of the Thomas Young video at the end of this post. Most of us are subjected to the same propaganda and lies that these folks were fed, starting in grade school. There’s a huge difference between these courageous (formerly gullible) men and women and the flag waving arm chair warriors who continue to support the GWOT (and likely brand these men as cowards, pussies or even traitors). You can see the truth in their eyes and faces, not just hear it in the words they speak. Show them some respect and watch it to the end.

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it”                           Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

In the next video we can watch some of the psychopaths that send young men and women off to illegal, immoral wars for profit. Never their own children and grandchildren, but those of nameless, faceless families who believe the lies and propaganda that fuels blind patriotism. Many of them are war criminals that continue to enjoy lives of entitlement in positions of power and influence. Listening to them (we’re not privy to the laughter and joking that goes on in the boardrooms of those who profit from the “wars” directly ) laughing about the gullibility of the bulk of the American population is beyond disgusting. It was right in your face America, how did you miss it?
