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

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.”

By: Zy Marquiez

Recently saw someone portray issues with their friends/loved ones in a matter that made me ponder.

For quite some time this person [although this scenario applies to many] has had continued friction with others. Without going into the details into the situation, and maintaining a macro view without taking sides, the scenario has been repeated quite often. In fact, often enough that it makes one wonder why would someone put themselves through repeated pain if they need not?

Of course there are a veritable cluster of reasons for this, but the focus of this post is not on the negative ultimately. In fact, by noticing that which we take great issue with, not only do we reasonably see what causes us issues, but we can see the opposite side of the spectrum. We can take note of what we do want, or in this case, who we do want in our lives.

Which brings me to my next point.

What brings you up? Who brings you up?

Are you cognizant deep down inside of it? Many folks believe that they are, ultimately to repeat the same mistake over, and over, and over, and so on. This might be personal, financial, or other.

Dealing with this can be quite trying; definitely know this personally as think most of us do.

Still though, why not some introspection and see what we can gather?

Why not bring those people that lift us up into the fold, rather than have folks run all over our spirits day in and day out. And no, am not talking about circumstances where one has to be with said person, or through said issue, such as work. Although there is something to be said for not acting on that which causes you pain/harm etc.

Am talking about the simplest of problems that people can rectify if they were to realize that they are far simpler to solve – in some cases – then some realize.

Perhaps by bringing more folks into our sphere that share y/our values, y/our true values, and beliefs [and not just religious, either] we can transcend into a greater, healthier experience in this life of ours.

This seems very obvious, and yet, its not done as much as it could be. This is speaking from experience and that of close friends at least. Why not?

First, many people hate to be wrong in all of the permutations that that entails. Would be interesting to know how a variety of cultures would react to certain scenarios; here in the West though, starting at the top self-responsibility seems to be a foregone thought. The top being politics, institutions, corporations, and so on.

Secondly, some folks are stubborn. That can be a good quality at times, but at others, its like attempting to move a wall. It just won’t happen no matter how hard you try.

Third, and most importantly, the people that can inflict various forms of mental/psychological/financial harm on us, happen to be the folks many people gravitate towards. Kind of ironic isn’t it?

This is partly because they seem more interesting. They seem more fun, and they might be in a sense.  They also seem more alluring in a variety of departments. Still though, by their deeds they are known, and jerks folks that have extensive resumes in screwing people over, shouldn’t be given the benefit of the doubt. Especially over and over and over again.

As an addendum, this is not throwing people that make mistakes under the bus. Not even close. We all make mistakes. Am precisely talking about the people that repeatedly leech your time, finances and energy – all of which are highly important in our society – and nigh always end up on the better side of the debacle, with you to pick up whatever pieces are strewn about. They also rarely if ever contribute anything positive to you, and many times if they do, they act as they are you doing you a favor by just breathing air. The 10-ton stones on some folks right!

Moving forward, we should always be striving to do our best, and many times doing our best includes making the simplest best choices for us. Positive relationships in all walks of life are a beautiful sunset to our eyes, are an exquisite meal to our body, and a breath of fresh air to our soul. Those relationships are energizing rather than the converse. They make life worth living in more ways than oft get mentioned.

If you know someone that might need some help, why not lend a hand? Nobody wants to face issues alone, especially if they don’t even know there are any in the first place. Be wary of denial though! That might make a situation worse.

Ultimately, we can only lead our own lives to the very bests of our ability if we choose, and our ability to help others rests in what choices they make to better themselves. If that includes you, great. If not, find someone else.

Life is too short to be clinging to folks that bring about negative change in your life. This beautiful thing we call life, offers a beautiful kaleidoscope of choices that will aid us in more ways we could imagine. But only if one chooses.

So, who/what lifts YOUR spirits up? Well! What are you waiting for!? Get to it. Take some time for yourself and make someone’s day while you’re at it.

Each one, reach one.

One that note:

“If you feel like your ship is sinking, it might be a good time to throw out the stuff that’s been weighing it down. Let go of people who bring you down, and surround yourself with those who bring out the best in you.”

GSK whistleblower says Glaxo Marketing VP ‘Sir’ Andrew Witty was deeply involved in massive criminal cover-up

via: NaturalNews
Friday, July 27, 2012
By: Ethan A. Huff

[NaturalNews] The recent landmark ruling against drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), which as we recently reported led to a massive criminal fine of more than $3 billion and a guilty plea by the company of committing felony crimes (http://www.naturalnews.com/036499_Glaxo_whistleblower_bribery.html), was followed by an apology from GSK Vice President of Marketing “Sir” Andrew Witty for the company’s “past” failures. But according to whistleblower Gregory Thorpe, the apology is meaningless, as Witty had been working for GSK during the years when the company was proven to have been engaged in illegal activity, and was more than likely involved in it.

Not only that, but Thorpe was the one punished by GSK for coming forward with the truth, a retribution that he has had to sustain for more than a decade, while Witty was recently “knighted” by the U.K. government for his supposed service to the British economy and pharmaceutical industry. If anything, Witty’s ridiculous apology is nothing more than a lame attempt at shifting blame from himself to supposed “past” scapegoats, all the while claiming that GSK is now a new company that operates honestly.

Thorpe; however, says that he and Blair Hamrick were the ones that tried to change GSK for the better by coming forward with evidence that the pharmaceutical giant was engaged in a massive criminal enterprise that involved illegally marketing drugs, bribing doctors, and drugging children. And rather than change, the corrupt-to-the-core leadership team at GSK, which included Witty, put Thorpe and his family through years of hell for exposing the truth.

“[Witty] calls [the corruption] echoes of the past, another era, another company, yet he was there,” wrote Thorpe in the comment section of a recent article on the GSK scandal published by the U.K.’s Yorkshire Post (YP). Like most other mainstream reports on the GSK scandal, YP glosses over Witty’s potential involvement in the GSK scandal, and all the corresponding unanswered questions, and seems to accept his apology as valid and sufficient.

“Did he participate? Did he know? What did he know? Why did he not come forward? Why won’t he answer these questions?” asks Thorpe about Witty’s likely participation in the GSK scandal. “I blew the whistle, I was tossed out after 24 years with the company. I was terminated and retaliated against for the last 11 years … GSK covered up their conduct, got caught, and now Witty is ‘sorry’?”

“They took 11 years from me and my family suffered. I was blackballed in the pharmaceutical business. In the meantime, Witty was ‘knighted.'”

You can read Thorpe’s full comments at the bottom of the following article:
http://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk

If that comment gets deleted, here’s our captured screen shot of it:
http://www.naturalnews.com/images/YorkShirePost-Glaxo-Mistakes-GThorpe.jpg

$3 billion may seem like a lot, but it is nothing for a massive company like GSK

Even though it represents the largest criminal penalty in pharmaceutical history, the $3 billion fine levied against GSK is mere pocket change in the bigger picture of the company’s overall financial assets and revenues. GSK openly admitted to engaging in a longstanding, organized criminal enterprise that likely cost thousands of people their lives — does a measly $3 billion fine and a phony apology really serve justice in light of this?

According to the allegations originally filed by Thorpe and Hamrick against GSK, which the company has now pleaded guilty to, GSK’s entire marketing strategy involved exploiting and defrauding government health programs; illegally promoting drugs for off-label uses that included marketing them to children; and bribing doctors to promote drugs to patients that did not need them in exchange for illicit kickbacks.

You can watch the recent interview between Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, and whistleblower Blair Hamrick, where Hamrick explains this and much more, here:
http://tv.naturalnews.com/v.asp?v=1FE6404520AA77A877753AA936722510

Since Witty held numerous high-level positions at GSK during the time in which the company was proven to have engaged in the most colossal criminal conspiracy yet unveiled in the pharmaceutical industry, he had to have, at the very least, been aware of what was going on at the company — and more than likely, he was actively involved in it. But either way, Witty did not come forward and speak up about GSK’s crimes, nor did he defend Thorpe and Hamrick in trying to turn the company around by exposing its corruption.

Instead, Thorpe and Hamrick made the decision to do the right thing by themselves, and consequently suffered years of torment by pharmaceutical big-wigs like Witty that continued to hide their company’s evil deeds from the public. And now that the truth has been exposed in plain sight, Witty and his company are getting off scot-free with a canned apology and a relatively small, at least for GSK, financial penalty?

Alternative media blows the lid on Big Pharma’s massive bribery network

via: NaturalNews
Wednesday, July 18, 2012
by Mike Adams

[NaturalNews] Two of the most influential alternative media organizations on the ‘net — InfoWars.com and NaturalNews.com — have blown the lid wide open on Big Pharma’s massive bribery network. Through exclusive interviews with pharma insiders, InfoWars and NaturalNews have done what the mainstream media refuses to do: grant a platform to credible whistleblowers who are exposing the systematic, criminal Big Pharma bribing of doctors who willingly accept kickbacks to write prescriptions for high-profit pharmaceuticals.

These revelations are surfacing on the heels of the drug industry’s largest settlement in history: GlaxoSmithKline’s $3 billion fine and guilty plea to committing felony crimes (http://www.naturalnews.com/036416_GlaxoSmithKline_fraud_criminal_char…). NaturalNews editor Mike Adams (the Health Ranger) was able to connect with one of the key whistleblowers who initiated that nine-year DOJ investigation, and he went on the record with shocking allegations about off-label pharmaceutical marketing and the systematic bribery of doctors (http://www.naturalnews.com/036499_Glaxo_whistleblower_bribery.html).

The video interview with Blair Hamrick is available at:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_RJ9QPG70U
and:
http://tv.naturalnews.com/v.asp?v=1FE6404520AA77A877753AA936722510

Blair was also interviewed by Adams on the Alex Jones Show (www.InfoWars.com), where he revealed additional information about Glaxo’s activities such as the “coaching” of pharmaceutical sales reps to enroll doctors in elaborate kickback schemes. The video of that interview is available below.

Caller blows the whistle on the physician bribery underground

Following Blair’s interview on the Alex Jones Show, a woman who identified herself as “Ally” called in to the show and described, in authentic language and tone, how she had worked inside a company that managed the “kickback” relationships between drug companies and doctors. On live national radio, she proceeded to describe details about how doctors would earn up to $6,000 a day as part of Big Pharma’s speakers bureaus. In her own words, below, she explains how doctors and physicians lined up to cash in on the bribery payoffs, happy to sell their souls to Big Pharma while pimping out drugs that were often shown to be dangerous — even deadly — to the consuming public.

The message or the money?

SilverFuturist

What is more important to your favorite pundits, the message or the money? It is starting to look like the money comes first and the message comes second. Meaning there is no real message, because the message will change in order to make more money!
