"There will be in the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears so to speak. Producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution."-- Aldous Huxley, Tavistock Group, California Medical School, 1961I haven't written for over a week. I've been pretty confused lately, and unsure as to what I wanted to write about. Unsure as to what direction I wanted this blog to go. I'm not a professional writer or researcher, and these subjects I've encountered and learned about since I began seriously looking into 9/11 take some serious reading, re-reading, fact checking, and double-fact checking. With that being said, I do believe I have some important things to contribute to this debate and movement. After all, in order to defeat this tyranny that has descended upon our society, we all have to take a stand. The sooner the better.
What I have noticed, especially lately, is the utter absurdness of our political discourse, and mainstream society in general. What you see on TV and get in popular culture, basically. And then, the epiphany I had been waiting for struck me: we are living in a society perfectly described by Aldous Huxley in the quote introducing this post. We are living in the "final revolution."
What a scary, depressing thought, huh?
What else can you say? The evidence is all around us, smacking us in the face on a daily basis. From the lies about 9/11, to preposterous claims about WMD in Iraq, to "enhanced interrogation", to the upcoming war with Iran, the ridiculous claims being made by the Establishment would be laughable, if they didn't have such dire consequences for humanity. It's amazing people can't, or won't, see through it all. The controllers of this country, and much of the world, literally tell us absurd lies, and we go along with it without raising an eyebrow. How else can you explain the fact that the United States is in the position it is in today? We are being subjected to a daily barrage of propaganda, and seeing through it and recognizing what it is, while everyone else in the room acquiesces and takes in the BS, is not a comforting feeling.
That's not to say I don't get distracted, or enjoy mindless, meaningless things in life. For instance, I love football, and sports in general, really. I may be one of the most die-hard Nebraska Cornhusker fans out there (we are all die-hard, actually!). There are things in life, although meaningless in the end, that give us comfort, a sense of who we are, and entertainment. That doesn't mean I have no responsibility to understand what is happening in the world, or what the government that I pay taxes to does in my name. Call me crazy, but I simply don't like being lied to. I don't like watching buildings blow up and being told an airplane made them crash down on each other demolition style. I don't like being told that torturing someone is really just "enhanced interrogation." I could go on and on with the utter absurdities being pushed by these people. I want to know what is really going on in this world, and why.
I was reading Timster's blog the other day, and this post really struck me in relation to all of this. A brief excerpt:
What I feel as if I am doing here...is more for me than against anything. It's important for me, as I am sure it is you...that as The Who said, "We won't get fooled again". That's a huge thing for me. Not to be fooled. Not to be taken in by someone with a hidden agenda. I HATE liars. And I cannot stand to be manipulated. I think that is at the heart of quite a lot of any type of rebellion. Beyond not agreeing with the PTB and their plans for continuous wars and subjugation of masses of people...I refuse to be in that mass.Well said. I will not be fooled again. Will you?
