The Individual – The Foundation Of Society

“They [conformists] think society wiser than their soul, and know not that one soul, and their soul, is wiser than the whole world…Society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members….Whoso would be a man, must be a nonconformist…. Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

By: Zy Marquiez

The collective is often promulgated as the vanguard of society – the gears that keep society moving forward. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Choice, and choice alone, is what allows the pillars of society to maintain themselves atop. Without choice, nothing could be accomplished. Who holds the ability to make choices? The individual.   This fact makes individual consciousness the bulls-eye in the boundless reality we life in the eye of the powers that shouldn’t be.

On a daily basis, individuals are swamped with meaningless information, much of which is designed to keep the collective stagnant, and the individual’s mind overwhelming docile.

In large part the media plays a very incisive/essential role in reality the Matrix. They hold the keys to the kingdom, they narrate what is, and isn’t, and they and only they know what’s ‘good’ for you’. You, being the group, should just follow the lead. Questioning anything is ludicrous. Have you seen how people that say anything that differs with popular opinion are treated? And yet, is the collective that rush towards the cliff unknowingly.

A fitting axiom for this is: “The mind of one free thinker can possess a million ideas. A million fanatics can have their minds possessed by a single idea.”

Ultimately, the individual is the one that gives the media its power.

How is this accomplished? Attention. At its base, attention given to the presstitutes allows the media to profit whilst also infusing the populace’s brain with the latest and greatest agenda. The individual, however, can always detach.

Besides profit, there is the ever present and relentless memes that the media melds into its nightly account of what the news is, and that is the teeth of the monster. This make it seem like the media is the gateway to knowledge – the top of the pyramid. This is a fallacy, however.

The vortex of truth, the grid of reality, the constellation of individuality all center upon the ultimate weapon – consciousness. Without consciousness, everything disappears. And who holds said consciousness? The individual.

Individuals are the foundation out of which society functions. Communities, institutions, corporations, governments & churches all gain their power from the individual. Without the individual the collective cannot even exist.

Without the individual, the media would not only have no one to expound the latest news towards, but also nobody to brainwash in the process.

As mentioned earlier, the individual has is the ability of free choice. This is often hijacked in a sophisticated and surreptitious way, to make the individual think they are choosing. An example of this is the duopoly.

What is the duopoly? It is ultimate illusion of choice. Some of the best examples of this are: pepsi/coke, christianity/islam, republicans/democrats, east/west, and many other underhanded subtle permutations that control our daily lives.

If the individual thinks he is has the illusion of choice, he believes he holds the power. But in most categories, the individual has been given a constellation of empowering information information from a limited box from which to choose from. With narrow, and very constricted choices at that. Politics is the epitome of this.

This remains largely unnoticed since it is a lifelong process by which people have been mold into giving way their power. A sinister example of this takes place in schooling.

If you are reading this blog, there is a reasonable assumption that you realize that the modern public school system leaves a lot to be desired is absolutely useless nowadays.

An example of reality reduction is this: Imagine yourself in school, and taking the classic multiple choice test. Instead of allowing the student to show mastery of the subject, and answering the questions with the best possible answers, the individual is automatically put in a box, asked to choose from multiple choices, of which one is already the correct one. You see, reality doesn’t exist beyond those four choices. Heaven forbid one was actually allowed to use mental precision and answer a question in complete sentences. To show reason and logic.

By constant repetition and intrinsic simplicity, not only is one’s mind unable to stretch itself to the rims of subject mastery, but this essentially creates an automaton out of the individual – a person cog in the machine that merely regurgitates information when asked, rather than an individual who thinks for him/her self and is always at the tip of the spear, ready for action. Prepared for whatever life bring them, and not reactive to situation.

There is a great saying: “Knowledge is power. Lack of knowledge is knack of power.” A corollary to this would be: Choices allow individual power. Lack of choices create lack of power.

By shrinking and pummeling reality at every turn giving us whatever version of the news is convenient/profitable for the comptrollers, the magician behind the curtain systematically curtails the individual’s mental faculties.

The individual must deftly identify all that is inimicable in their environment, and proceed accordingly. He must sharpen his mental/psychological/physical/spiritual blades to be up to the challenge – whatever daily challenge is strew upon his environs.

The establishment states the economy is great? The individual realizes that it’s a controlled decent at the moment, not buying the propaganda. The establishment says politicians will solve the latest issue? The individual realizes politicians are one the current social issues. The establishment expounds that cancer is on the rise, and we must ‘race for the cure’? The individual realizes many forms to eviscerate and cure cancer, and better yet, knows how to prevent it in the first place. The establishment states that vaccines are needed for the latest flu season. The individual is extremely skeptical of such a thing, because he realizes that the CDC has been constantly caught lying, and is untrustworthy; he also realizes that there is evidence here, here, here, here, here, and here that ultimately destroys the official storyline. The establishment is recommending one go spend money on black Friday! The individual realizes that finances should be used selectively, because only he will ultimately be responsible for their own financial wellbeing. The establishment states that terrorism is on the rise. The individual is skeptical due to the historical media inconsistences regarding this topic and false flags that have taken place, but is always prepared and armed, because he realizes being unarmed automatically makes you a victim if death comes knocking on your door.

And lastly, the establishment states that the individual must be sacrificed at the altar of the collective.
But the individual realizes that he is the roots of the collective, and no group, no system, no institution nor government can exist without him.

Is there a greater power than that?

Let us finalize with some wise words by an esteemed reporter/researcher:

“It’s instructive to read what authors wrote about core values a hundred or two hundred years ago, because then you can appreciate what has happened to the culture of a nation. You can grasp the enormous influence of planned propaganda, which changes minds, builds new consensus, and exiles certain disruptive thinkers to the margins of society. You can see what has been painted over, with great intent, in order to promote tyranny that proclaims a greater good for all.”
– Jon Rappoport, The Underground

Who’s Winning the War On You?

via: TheIntelHub
By Zen Gardner
July 26, 2012

We’re at war, and the enemy is us – a conscious, responsive humanity. World dominion cannot succeed with an awake, empowered population. We’re at a crucial time in history and right now the air is crackling with programmed anticipation, and that’s just how they planned it.

It’s all about our minds and hearts. The propaganda and staged events are triggers to shut you down.

We need to see through all this fabricated bullshit.

Showtime – The Bigger the Lie the Better

We’re witnessing the most massive peacetime militarization ever undertaken. Using false flags, false alerts and false enemies, the United States and England are leading the charge into a technological police state that far surpasses Orwell’s nightmare or Huxley’s drugged Brave New World.

Not only is the over-the-top London Olympics psychically begging for an incident while Israel spews their shrill “Iran’s gonna do it” campaign, but the US is wildly cranking up for a vicious war on its own people based on a completely fabricated series of false alerts and accusations used to justify their metastacizing Fascist “homeland security” gridlock.

Now fully augmented by the military a la the Olympics idiocy.   Get their drift?

All they need now is the right “justification” to make it permanent.

They’ve painted humanity into a psychological corner. 9/11 on steroids coming up. Prepare accordingly.

TSA Searches Unconstitutional? Is Microsoft Part Of Big Brother Network?

via: RT
July 25, 2012

In the light of the latest cases on whistleblowers it looks like privacy in the US is more and more becoming a thing of the past. The TSA has come under fire lately for hands-on searches that some say just go too far. And moreover – TSA now says they have a right to search your smart phones. This is all coming after a man by name John Corbett filed a lawsuit against the TSA. He says they detained him for refusing to be groped and then rummaged though his belongings and read through his personal items.

London’s Militarised Olympic Games Conjures Up Orwell’s 1984

via: GlobalResearch.ca
by: Finian Cunningham
July 15, 2012

The London Olympics are fast taking on the appearance and tone of a full-scale land, sea and air military operation rather than an international sporting event.

With surface-to-air missiles stationed on top of residential apartment blocks, Royal Navy battleships on alert and Royal Air Force fighter jets and helicopters patrolling the skies over Britain’s capital there is a foreboding sense of a nation at war instead of an occasion of internationalist fraternity that the ancient Games are supposed to embody.

The Games begin in just under two weeks. The latest development is the announcement by Britain’s Ministry of Defence that 3,500 extra troops are to be deployed to ensure security at the 30 venues hosting sporting events. This is in addition to the 13,500 military personnel already assigned to protect members of the public and sports teams from the risk of terrorist attack.

British General Sir Nick Parker, overseeing the security arrangements, has said that one of the contingencies being planned for is dealing with a “9/11 type event”.

The total troop deployment in and around London represents 7,000 more personnel than is currently on British operations in Afghanistan.

This figure is in addition to the 10,000 extra police officers and a division of 10,000 private security guards. It was the disclosure that G45, the private security firm with the Olympics contract, could not fulfill its manpower requirements to cover the Games that prompted the latest enlisting of additional soldiers.

In David Cameron’s Orwellian Britain They Now Snoop on Seaside Postcards

via: TheIntelHub.com
by: Richard Cottrell
July 5, 2012

A country crosses the Rubicon to a full blown totalitarian state when its agents decide to read the contents of seaside post cards.

In the future anyone sending the traditional vacation greeting ‘wish you were here’ to family and friends through the UK’s Royal Mail will do so in the knowledge that faceless clerks working for the intelligence services will try to decipher exactly what ‘having a lovely time’ really means.

A lovely time making bombs perhaps? Is ‘the sea is a bit cold for the time of the year’ some kind of code to transmit concealed instructions to a cell of fiendish plotters?

God forbid that anyone should send love and kisses from anywhere east of Sussex and sign off ‘Mohammed.’  That will be quite sufficient to earn a 4 a.m. wake up call from Scotland Yard’s finest.

Nor is it just about plain old postcards by any means. A new bill crawling through parliament conveys the power to read inscriptions written on the outside of envelopes.

There used to be a very famous message popular with service personnel posted around the empire, who were inclined to inscribe BURMA on the back of coming home letters addressed to wives and girl friends. Decoded, it read: Be Undressed and Ready My Angel.

Lord knows what the censors might make of that in these days of synthetic paranoia manufactured by the denizens of law and order and the security-obsessed guards of the state.

Of course the whole thing is perfect nonsense. Who sends postcards in the age of the Internet, the iPhone, Blackberries and so forth? Intimacies are more likely exchanged electronically these days.

Unfortunately the snoops are listening in there too, so whichever means you employ to communicate, old fashioned steam mail or otherwise, all-knowing, all-seeing Big Brother is on your back.

In David Cameron’s Britain you are doomed to be cornered any route you take.

The extension of the security dragnet to picture postcards and the scrutinizing of scribbles on envelopes in search of some secret hint to blow things up, depicts a state which has broken loose on its hinges.

It has become the true Orwellian condition in which every citizen is a suspect, unless you happen to be a fully paid member of the one percent, a policeman, or a member of the Teflon secret services, HMG.

Let’s not forget, demands for Google user information increasing by a whopping by 25% last year. There is not the faintest reason to maintain this constant state of scrutiny over the private citizen, except to turn every individual into an object of perpetual suspicion.

The word ‘object’ – inferring a human being – conveys considerable weight there.

David Cameron’s administration treats the entire nation as though it were composed of idiots.

So the new powers forced on the Royal Mail will not actually be deployed, just ‘held in reserve’, the response to which is: why the hell bother anyway?

Of course mass sedatives supplied in the form of the recent jubilee jamboree go a long way to distracting the populace from the ever-tightening, strangling grip of the emerging British national security state.

In another garbled version of this story, which spineless parliamentarians swallowed unchallenged, the truly Orwellian sounding ‘Ministry of Justice’ instead of the Post Office already had the powers to read private mail, so the objective was simply to ‘extend’ existing powers.

Did anyone in the UK know that? Were they aware that any mail could be inspected so that all the detritus of private lives could be inspected at will?

I must say that my quarrel is less with sleepwalking Members of Parliament – or even an absent minded prime minister who recently forgot his young daughter after a restoring break from the pressures of high office at a country – than the docile masses who so willingly beckon their own enslavement.

As it is a government that came to power pledged to roll back ever expanding surveillance and intrusion has instead switched the destruction of civil liberties to overdrive.

Airports are madhouses, doctors carrying vital organ transplants are tossed off planes because the containers are the wrong shape or size, tourists are picked up for snapping popular attractions, nosey individuals are encouraged (and even paid) to snoop on their neighbors, spy cameras are fixed to rubbish bins and other street paraphernalia to maintain around the clock surveillance of every citizen, regardless of age.

British policemen on the beat look like Robocops. You wouldn’t dare ask one of these snarling armor-plated Bobbies for destructions, lest he should think you were on a mission to explode some infernal suicide device.

Yet there is a bitterly ironic aspect to the gloomy scenario, namely that the British government – and David Cameron personally – is ensnared in the massive rogue phone hacking scandal connected with the activities of the ravenous Murdoch empire in the United Kingdom.

I intend to return to this theme at a later date, but for the moment these are the quite astonishing edited highlights.

It transpires that for years a raunchy red top Sunday tabloid called the News of the World, owned by Rupert Murdoch’s flagship News International, indulged in serial ‘e-fracking’ of voice mails made by scores of politicians and public celebrities.

These quite shamelessly illegal indulgences extended to the veterans of Britain’s useless foreign wars, survivors of the July 2005 bombing of the London Transport network – and in one especially morbid episode, tapping the mobile phone of a murdered schoolgirl to discover if by some miracle she might still be alive.

Of course all this serial e-fracking was conducted in pursuit of sensational and salacious stories to boost circulation and advertising revenues of the newspaper known to generations of Britons as the Screws of the World.

What did the custodians of law and order do when confronted with the incontrovertible facts? Practically nothing.

Scotland Yard officers turned out to be culprits feeding juice tidbits to newspaper reporters including the News of the World hackers.

Bad enough, but even worse, the Yard did all it could to smother Murdochgate in its infancy, quite obviously responding to orders from a higher level. This of course was not remotely connected with the highly controversial bid by News International for those remaining shares of the highly lucrative BSkyB satellite broadcasting channel which they did not already own.

In a perfectly delicious turning of the tables, senior figures in Cameron’s government – and Cameron personally – were recorded in e-mail exchanges expressing warm sentiments to Murdoch executives, even as the row over the hacking scandal touched fever pitch.

All of this is part and parcel of the sick incestuous merry-go-round pursued by British political leaders, irrespective of theoretical ideological bent, to win the priceless electoral endorsement of Murdoch’s media empire.

The story stretches back to Margaret Thatcher who regarded ‘Dear Rupert’ as an ex-officio member of her cabinet.

Blair was even more obsequious, forever jetting around News International’s Nuremburg rallies of craven executives, preaching from tablets approved by the Dear Publisher in Chief.

We are introduced to Cameron’s rather glaring deficiencies of critical judgment, even one might say, his disregard of his fiduciary responsibilities as prime minister.

Not the least of these was his decision to hire (against sound industry advice) a former News of the World editor who was demonstrably on the bridge during the hacking affair, first as the Tory Party’s lavishly rewarded Director of Communications and subsequently his own personal media controller in Downing Street.

Cameron’s follies in the Murdochgate business are seemingly endless as he blunders from one indefensible stand to the next. A Liberal coalition minister responsible for policing monopolies was taken off the BSkyB case because he had the temerity to stand by the ethical standards approved by the very parliament of which the prime minister is a member.

The minister’s replacement, one of Cameron’s Old Etonian chums, promptly and predictably went native.

The PM is now embroiled in a blazing public row with the high court judge that he personally selected to inquire into media ethics in the wake of Murdochgate. The problem is that the official inquiry under way did not puff up the usual smokescreens, but instead went for the jugular of abysmal disregard for even basic ethics and standards which has corroded the UK media, including the BBC.

Even though the Sky bid is history, along with the now shuttered News of the World, Cameron clings to Murdoch like a survivor of the Titanic rowing towards the stricken ship. Thus, Cameron accuses Lord Leveson of using his intrusive and objectionable inquiry to gag the media and stifle the free press.

This is such a reckless and stupid charge in the wake of the phone tapping scandal, one can only be amazed at the prime minister’s bizarre sense of logic, and for that matter, those who surround him who are supposedly there to tender informed advice.

Wherever one looks, one sees the prime minister’s footprints. It does not help at all that two intimates of his super-rich set roosting in his plush Oxfordshire constituency have been charged with conspiring to pervert the course of justice in the hacking affair.

The fragrant flame-haired Rebekah Brooks, News International Chief Executive and another former editor of the Screws of the World, is in the dock alongside her husband Charlie, a well known figure on the British racing turf.

The case comes up for trial in the autumn, which rather guarantees that Cameron will find himself uncomfortably exposed as the Tory faithful gather for their annual gathering. The omens are not good.

Aside from Murdochgate, the recent local election results were deplorable for the Tories, there is open squabbling among the coalition crew and much touting of Borison Johnson the rowdy populist Mayor of London as leader in waiting.

For certain Murdochgate means dark skies over the annual Tory get-together.

The last occasion such a stench arose from the bowels of the Tory party was in the 1960s during the notorious Profumo affair which featured furious sexual romping connecting the defense minister, an alleged Russian spy and a gaggle of young hookers who became household names.

The setting was a palatial mansion on the banks of the River Thames. By all accounts the upper crust – including a spattering of royals – was out in force for the regular frolics organized by a society osteopath who subsequently died in police custody.

The Tory government was holed below the waterline. The PM, Old Etonian, ex-Guardsman Harold Macmillan was judged as not fully in charge of the ship or the crew and unceremoniously pushed out of office. The socialists, long believed to be dormant if not politically dead, broke 13 years of Tory rule shortly afterwards.

Macmillan was the last Old Etonian to roost in Downing Street. Well, until now that is. In the circumstances Mr. Cameron would do well to remember the age old dictum that déjà vu is invariably the ruling theme of all political cultures.

In any event as MPs prepare to set off for their long holiday recess, their seaside postcards should make for interesting reading in certain quarters.

70 Reasons To Mourn For America’s Decline

via: ActivistPost
by: Michael Snyder
July 4, 2012

Every single year, Americans take the day off on July 4th and they celebrate everything that is good about America. We tend to be very proud of our achievements and we generally are not shy about talking about them. For example, today CNN is running a piece entitled “100 great things about America“.

And you know what? There are a lot of great things about this country. I am not afraid to say that I love America. In many ways it has been a great light for the rest of the world since it was founded.

However, things have changed. The United States has greatly fallen from where it once was. The truth is that America is rotting and decaying in thousands of different ways. We need to repent and go back to doing the things that once made this country great. The road that we are currently on is a path that leads to national suicide.

So, to be honest, now is not really the time for happy celebrations. Rather, now is the time for weeping, mourning and deep reflection. We need to turn from our profligate ways and we need to return to the fundamental principles that the early Americans understood so well. As a nation we need to look into the mirror and understand just how bad our decline has been. We are a complete and total mess, and it is time to admit that.

The following are 70 reasons to mourn for America….

1. Most Americans know much more about Kim Kardashian than they do about the Federal Reserve.

2. The way that the TSA abuses travelers is a national embarrassment. One TSA agent recently sifted her finger through the ashes of someone’s dead grandfather and then spilled his ashes all over the airport floor.

3. Many young people in America are willing to wait in line to pay a 400% markup on new Kanye West sneakers, but most of those same young people cannot even tell you how many members of Congress there are.

4. Many Americans seem to be far more interested in American Idol and Dancing With The Stars than they are in dealing with the very serious economic, political and moral problems facing this nation.

5. A recent survey found that 61 percent of all Americans believe that “paying your fair share of taxes” is being patriotic.

6. We currently have the worst president in U.S. history, and there is a chance that we may have to endure another 4 years of his insanity.

7. We have a Supreme Court that appears to have very little respect for the U.S. Constitution.

8. The financial center of our country, Wall Street, is full of psychopaths.

9. America has the highest incarceration rate and the largest total prison population in the entire world by a very wide margin.

10. The highways of America are rapidly being turned into a high tech prison grid.

11. American children today are very spoiled, very undisciplined and most of them wouldn’t know a day of hard work if it came up and bit them on the behind.

12. Today, approximately 25 million American adults are still living with their parents.

13. Back in 1962, only 13 percent of all Americans were obese. Today, approximately 36 percent of all Americans are obese.

14. Of all the major industrialized nations, America is the most obese. Mexico is in second place.

15. According to one recent survey, only 25 percent of all Americans have 6 months of emergency savings stored up.

16. The United States leads the world in credit card fraud.

17. You know that things are bad in America when even the U.S. Secret Service has developed “an Animal House reputation” for partying wildly while guarding Barack Obama during his vacations on Martha’s Vineyard.

18. In many areas of the country crime is getting worse and thieves are stealing just about anythingthat is not bolted down.

19. One recent poll found that only 70 percent of Americans agree with the Declaration of Independence.

31. The United States has the highest rate of illegal drug use in the entire world.

32. Faith in almost every major American institution is near an all-time low.

33. The U.S. healthcare system is a complete and total mess, and now Obamacare is going to make things much, much worse.

64. The U.S. government wastes more money than any other government on earth does by far.

65. All over America, people are being attacked by mobs simply because of the color of their skin.

66. Today, the United States actually has a higher percentage of workers doing low wage work than any other major industrialized nation does.

IARPA: US Government Spies on Us Through Vimeo and YouTube

via: ActivistPost
Susanne Posel
July 4, 2012

Igor Curcio heads a team of researchers at the Nokia Research Center and has developed complicated algorithms that can take clips of thousands of films, and create a movie that is seamless and perfectly matched with an audio track.

Right now Google and YouTube assist corporations in mining for information on internet users by tracking what videos they watch. From there, a profile is derived from preferences.

The move toward utilizing computers to collect and decipher information is being seen across the intelligence community. On the US-Mexican border, developments are moving toward using computers to track border-crossers, film them with video cameras, and use software programs to analyze the data.

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) is a US governmental research agency that:

  •  Shares information with other US Intelligence Communities (IC)
  • Fills in the gap between other agencies
  • Provides innovations in line with business models
  • Provides intelligence concepts that surprise enemies

Lisa Porter, former head of NASA, directs projects at IARPA on everything from cyberspace to biometrics.

IARPA is divided into 3 offices:
The Office of Smart Collection was created to “dramatically improve the value of collected data from all sources.”
The Office of Incisive Analysis will “maximize insight from the information we collect, in a timely fashion.”
