A Gentle Nudge ;) ;)

I went down to Victoria Square to show my support for the 'Occupy Montreal' protest on Saturday. It's nice to be around people who actually care about the world they live in. The spirit to protest has hopefully picked itself up from many of it's growing pains suffered during the rebellious 1960's, dusted itself off, and now undergone a metamorphosis in this second decade of the 21st century; Now it's 'give peace a chance 2.0', providing a hope that we are not yet 'done' as a species. 

 "Does your wife, you know...'Occupy Wall Street?"
I'm not writing this perched atop my self-righteous 'soap-box', I must admit, it's only the second demonstration I've ever taken part in, I always viewed protesting to be useless guilt appeasing 'groupthink'.  My view had always been that a divestment from the elements of society and culture one objects to is a more effective means of communicating discontent and affecting 'change'.

But the tables have now turned on that much beloved aforementioned generation of Hippy protesters, many of whom chose to abandon their 'youthful idealism' for the immediate gratification of their newfound 'materialist idealism'.  There are many leftover from that generation who never did 'sell out' and I salute them, but others unfortunately succumbed to the pressures and 'immediate gratification' of shifting their ideals and allegiances ;)  They moved from one of protest, 'free love', and 'social justice' (and all the fringe benefits of peer acceptance) to a derivative of social justice called 'liberalism' which of course always remained subordinate to the construction of their personal financial empires (and all the fringe benefits of it's peer acceptance).

This new protest movement will gain momentum though, to the point where it will appear to define this generation over the narcissistic one which preceded them, and if I believed we had the resource capacity to endlessly repeat social cycles, I would say that most of those who will latch on to this movement would one day become like the calcified individuals who abandoned their 60's idealism for buckets of leveraged cash.

We all know how history does not repeat itself, but rhymes, and this movement, although similar to the protest movements of the sixties, actually has identified the root problem behind the dysfunction, which is banking (the debt based pyramid scheme thereof) the influence within politics of lobbyists, and the 'eternal' racket of corporate sponsored warfare (a.k.a. The Military Industrial Complex).

In the sixties, as a small boy, I had as much contempt as a five year old could possibly have for 'Hippies', I saw their vices, yet was too young to see the systemic injustices driving their rage by the imbalances of human greed and frailty. For this reason, I couldn't comprehend why these 'pot smoking', 'acid dropping', 'long haired freeloaders' were so pissed off, or how anyone could hope to engage a civilization by simply 'turning on, tuning in, and dropping out'.

The unfortunate consequences of being young and idealistic, is not to have had enough life experience to truly understand what levels of subterfuge other humans will stoop to in order to gain control over others, and also to what degree weaker humans can be manipulated. Many of these protesters are wise, considering their acknowledgement of their refusal to incorporate leaders in their movement. Perhaps many of them learned this apophatically through the coercive techniques used by Security at the anti-globalist G-20 and G-8 demonstrations, or by simply taking Sun-Tzu's advice and choosing to remain formless.

The calcified Grandmas and Grandpas who must be looking on with disgust, squander their acquired wisdom, by apologizing for, and actually defending the status quo. They find comfort with beliefs that the system we have set in place is the best we have at the present moment, so let's not rock the boat too much!  It's an easy position to assume if one has a yearly income which well exceeds the national average, and which compared to most of the world, All of us here in the west fall into that category. From the perspective of someone working at a 'call centre' or 'sweat shop' in Asia, the recent spirit of protest in developed countries might appear to be nothing more than a pathetic 'mea-culpa' propagated by 'spoiled westerners' sensing the collapse of their idealistic globalist financial system. "Where were you before everything turned to shit?" they may just be asking.

Right now, Egypt is going through hell. After rising up to excise their malignant 'Mubarak tumour', the rapid rate at which this transformation has happened has created a power vacuum, and Egyptians are currently experiencing the horrific blowback from this political paradigm shift. One could argue how any radical transformation of our current system would not engender as bad a result as what's happened in Egypt, because our desperation is quiet and not as palpable here in the first world. Should our system fail us or change due to a 'sudden revolution', we would probably experience a 'grace period' until either our patience and/or economic conditions begin to rapidly deteriorate, and at that point, the opportunists will most certainly come marching in with their 'solutions',  however extreme they may be. There was once great hope in Russia, after the Bolshevik revolution, with the Romanov's gone, and the experiment of Communism in it's infancy, delusion and hope at that time reigned supreme, until…

 Although we have a very different culture than that of Egypt, or 20th century Russia, these differences are merely window dressing compared the similarities which bind us... the fact that we are all human beings, forever wanting freedom from external control, yet all too often react violently to injustices by ruthlessly scapegoating other ethnicities perceived to be the 'enemy', all the while consumed by the psychosis brought on by the abdication of personal responsibility, one where we elect 'leaders' and their political parties who in turn volunteer to do the dirty work of parental governance, so that the rest of us can go about 'living our lives' and 'having fun'.

We here in the west have accomplished much greatness, and yet also have mastered the art of global injustice to 'near perfection'.  When one considers that half the world's population lives on less than two dollars a day, we must face the fact that our guilt driven foreign aid dollars are just not making the cut. Our government's have happily supported 'evil regimes' when it was 'in their interest to do so', only to destroy them with propaganda and military intervention once the offenders outlived their usefulness.

A good example of what I'm talking about is this recent campaign to discredit Iran, by claiming it's highly skilled Quds forces masterminded an extremely sloppy assassination plot to kill the Saudi ambassador to the UN (how Iran could possibly benefit from this assassination, or by provoking the ire of the west, is one tall tale I'd love to hear). 

It's well documented how Western leaders have been beating the drums of war with Iran for a long time, Spreading paranoia about Iran's plans to build a nuclear bomb. Also by jumping on any thing M. Ahmadinejad says and twisting it any-which-way in order to vilify him. History is replete with false flag events used as a pretext for war. The last notable one being the 'weapon's of mass destruction' fallacy used to jumpstart the war against Iraq.

 What is so appalling is that whenever it suits the agenda of our well funded 'leaders', they choose to abandon 'due-process' by employing extremist policies of 'shooting first and asking questions later'. This recent crisis is an issue to be resolved solely between the Saudi's and the Iranians, without the involvement of the current US administration. It must be brought before an international court in the Hague, so it can be determined who is responsible for doing what, and THEN, and only then, can countries like the United States usher a correct political response. This hasty desire for America to execute 'justice'  has to make any thinking person suspicious, especially given the specious evidence presented in this latest plot. If the Corporatist/Globalist powers driving foreign policy chose to escalate this nonsense to one of military conflict, I believe global consciousness is now such, as to effectively put a PERMANENT END to this hijacking of the common good, ending the capacity of those waging war and more importantly those within the power structure lying just below the surface of it's visible components. to them I say "Check Mate!"

Our Protesters however, see through all this bullshit, now infused with the true democratic and patriotic spirit of action, one which has been born out of the sober realization of the impotency of ones 'vote'.

At the protest itself, I could see some radicals were indeed present and who were using this opportunity to rally and hopefully guide the faithful into believing how only a Socialist, Nationalist, or Anarchist response is needed to combat our current pernicious form of capitalism, when the truth is, we don't even have capitalism to begin with. When profits are privatized and losses are socialized, all we have is what Benito Mussolini once described as: 'Corporatism'.

All that has ever been needed is a moderate, highly regulated, global capitalism, one of small business and small government, one where actual laws prohibit the raping of resources from less developed countries, and one where a small but thrifty government can regulate these monstrosities, in order to prevent the 'positive feedback loop' generated by large banks and corporations... in other words, to help prevent their rapacious greed from driving civilization off a fucking cliff. We the people have been all too happy to cooperate with this madness through both the consumption of this nonsense, and general passivity. Remember, all this must be kept in mind before passing any kind of ultimate judgement.

Those who 'protest of the protesters' will miss out on all the fun, like the Grinch who stole christmas, cynically deriding the protesters imperative for systemic change.  The large Banks have failed due to the caloussness of their own greed, and have tried to persuade and frighten us, with help from our elected officials, with catchphrases like 'too big to fail', or that somehow we would be incapable of functioning in a world without them 'doing God's work'. Yes, without them, the 'system' would collapse. A 'system' which allows the very few to take a greater portion of the 'resource pie' and carve it up into little bits like the eucharist at sunday mass, whilst expecting the rest of us to be grateful to them for doing so. 

The people and the protesters are standing up and calling bullshit!  And although we don't need a revolution overnight, there is a definitely a sense of urgency.  If we're lucky, we have perhaps about one generation to get from where we are now, to where we need to be, so that our little vessel called civilization doesn't get sucked into the 'event horizon', which is the logical extension of our current far-right political/economic methodology, and the inevitability of a totalitarian, oligarchically controlled, neo-feudal police state. (don't laugh, now or then!)

These protests are hopefully a 'gentle nudge' in the other direction. By the simple act of fostering a culture of defiance, there is no need yet to have a clear agenda as to where we need to go. At the moment, we must stop the ship and reverse course immediately, once that is accomplished we can only then set out on a new course! 

One young man at the protest had a cardboard sign around his neck asking the rhetorical question "How rich is too rich?"  a good question.  Like any sociopath, someone is too rich, when they lose the ability to empathize with, understand the needs of, and are clueless as to the day to day obstacles faced by those less fortunate than they are,. Remember, there is no such thing as rich without poor, if the rich fail to make accommodations for the basic human needs of those who earn less than they do (that is food, shelter and the ability to keep ALL the fruits of their hard labour), it will soon be over for us as an evolving species. Revenue sharing need not be confined solely to professional sports; I'm not talking 'socialism' so much as it is simply a responsible form of 'capitalism'.

It's important for the Oligarchs to remember too, that although providing 'soul destroying' jobs at low wages may offer employment, it does little to enrich the quality of anyone's lives, or the development and flourishing of 'human potential' within any given society. Without the infusion of proper inspiration, those ineffective 'individuals' rejecting these jobs are all too often viewed by elitists and those who stroke them as being lazy, whilst these same supremacists ironically bathe in the 'unearned riches' of their abstract financial 'investments'.

Radical but manageable change is needed over time, and the time to begin has begun. The protesters will be inheriting the consequences of the narcissism of my generation, We can only hope they will not judge us too harshly, despite the global and environmental circumstances which may dictate otherwise.

Protesting, therefore, is the left arm of defiance, and a systematic divestment from that within our society which has control over us, is the right arm.  It will ultimately boil down to the individual choices we must be conscious of when employing our one and only true power to 'vote', the money we chose to 'spend'.

Event Horizon (or Tau Jones' Locker and A Pi Coup Of Wall Street)

There's going to be an 'Occupy Montreal' protest this weekend, and I'm already working on my placard: "End the OverFed!… and bring back the Expos!!!"   Remember, the great challenge will be to always keep it light; humour is the social lubricant which keeps away bloodshed, and allows the message to penetrate to those calcified individuals who desperately need to change. 

I'm Much Too Important To Be Captured!
But I'll be there, reluctantly though, avoiding groups that use the symbol of 'a raised clenched fist' as their logo. I will be there not to 'end the fed' (they're doing a pretty good enough job at that by themselves), but more as a way to say, we the people are fed up with policies run by and for the super wealthy. One where the wealth of nations is being funnelled to the top of the pyramid to bail out the oligarchs. To stand for the voiceless in Libya Afghanistan Pakistan, Iraq, and against the racket of immoral corporate wars. To stand beside the people of Iceland, Greece Ireland, Portugal and other nations  whose leaders gambled the public treasuries on toxic assets sold to them by unscrupulous banksters. To stand in unison and in leaderless defiance, without a political agenda other than to express our right and obligation to say 'NO', and 'Please Stop!!'  Just as an assault victim needn't have a clear agenda or vision while being assaulted, other than to say 'NO' loudly, and to fight back any way possible.

No doubt there will be people with megaphones chanting vitriol, and placards made by those whose beliefs I do not subscribe to, but desperate times call for creative solutions. My immediate concern is the necessity to somehow help turn our ship away from the 'event horizon' before we can even think about getting down to the task of figuring out what kind of a world we want to live in, and what system will work best. (and the 'vultures' are waiting for that day, believe me)

Momentum is on the side of the 'Occupy Wall Street' protesters. The spirit to protest has now spread throughout the land beyond it's borders and on to other lands. Iranian leadership has just declared that the OWS protests will bring down capitalism in the US, I doubt it, but if it knocks down this current mutated strain, most of the protesters will be satisfied. The years of greed, corruption, Ponzi scheme economic theory, and the prosperity delusion provided by easily available credit, has exhausted itself in the minds of rational people who can finally see clearly where this racket is taking us, however…

Why do I get the creepy feeling these 'spontaneous' protests which began a few years ago in Europe, Asia, Burma, Thailand, and now the Arab world,  is only  'phase 2', or the 'anti-thesis' of the Hegelian Dialectic (thesis, anti-thesis-synthesis, or problem reaction solution)  If not cautious, we lucky humans will likely wind up scrapping it out, as we'll all be encouraged to chose a side. Who will win? will it be the totalitarian corporatist agenda or the totalitarian socialist agenda, six of one…in either case,  when the dust settles in that battle, the individual is poised to become just another function of the state.

I believe the Combination of 'Big Business' and 'small government' is a bad thing,  just as the combination of 'Big Government' and 'small business' is doomed to failure. What's even worse though, is our current arrangement of 'Big Business and Big Government' (corporatist), one where those who have the money get the freedom and respect, and those who don't are viewed as lessers. Whether their money was acquired through actual hard work, or by using leverage on capital, the investment returns on borrowed money, the creation of wealth through the buying of another's debt, in a system like ours, pardon seems to be given easier to those who have, than to those who have not.

It's not only wrong to sell someone a lie, but we've been all too happy to buy that lie for a long time. Those who seek an end to the 'evils' of the system must look inward and determine to what degree they honestly helped sail our ship a little closer to this apocalyptic 'event horizon'. These people must always remember this when the eventual collapse occurs, and fear once again fuels outrage at the 'Evil Bankers', 'Evil Police', or 'Evil Protesters'. You can't enjoy the fruits of capitalism during it's halcyon years, only then to decide you are a 'Socialist' the moment the ship sails into peril (or when it becomes fashionable again to do so). Yes it's better to wake up to injustices sooner than later, but please do us all a favour and leave your 'hammer and sickle' at home! 
(Oh, and by the way, didn't Germany have a reactive movement/government in the 1930's known as National Socialism? I refuse to be 'guided' by the repetitive chants and mindless marching of any George Soros funded demonstration, either before or after a financial collapse).

 Although I recognize the protesters desperation to reverse course immediately, I do think there will be enormous challenges ahead of them (to put it lightly). Their biggest one will be to resist the temptation of following anyone or any group which asserts itself as the 'leader', or any attempts to steer the protest movement with a political agenda of it's own. It's one thing to chop off the head of the Hydra, but if it has the ability to grow itself a new head, or has the Rasputin like resilience of Glenn Close in 'Fatal Attraction', then these protesters may not only be wasting their time, but actually helping to usher in an order which could be much worse than the one they are protesting against.

A 'Pi Coup' of Wall Street
'Leaders' eternally propose to solve effects and often do not understand causality. Causality will be debated denied, ridiculed, spun, for the sake of pushing forward agendas which better suits the needs of the 'leaders' and by extenuation, the needs of those who finance them. A reaction is not a solution. The solution to aggressive, soulless and pernicious Capitalism is not invasive, soulless, and oppressive Socialism. 

'Leaders' emerge buoyed by the delusional belief they can somehow guide the heathen masses to a better society, only to later find out that the matrix of power which lies sub-rosa, shielded from our elected officials, dictate the policy to them once elected. This is why someone like Obama, who I believe is probably a pretty nice and well intentioned guy, has failed so miserably at keeping his non-violent election promises.  People who run for public office or 'service' do so earnestly thinking their vision can make a difference, but without understanding the true principles and laws of 'cause and effect'  they can foolishly underestimate the strength and determination of our system to brush aside their scrawny idealism and steer the course of events in any particular direction it chooses.

I'm concerned too, that the mathematical certainty of a second wave, and even greater financial collapse than that of 2008, will lead to the far-right blaming the collapse on the OWS movement,
negating the entropy and simple arithmetic lying at the heart of, and within, the financial system's inherent flaws. Things, at that point, could begin to get really ugly. The Russians and the Chinese have already been vocal about the necessity of a new 'global reserve currency', one independent of the U.S. dollar, considering the Euro is currently on life support, the stage will be set to usher in a new global currency upon any partial or complete financial/economic and/or social collapse. And like most things at first, this remedy will be viewed as being 'a good thing', that is until it's occulted underpinnings begin to rear it's ugly head. 

With the formation of the European Union, only a very few had the vision to see how this particular model was doomed to failure, but due to the short term attention span of those trapped within their imbalanced 'left-brained prison cells', the immediate rewards of this projects past successes have proven to have been too seductive.

Currencies are now poised to collapse, gauging by the rapid rise in the prices of gold and silver, and the over-investment of the measly but 'safe' Swiss Franc (and it's subsequent devaluation), this upcoming meltdown appears to be a mathematical certainty. If you look at the outrageous bond yields in Europe, the troubled Big Banks on both sides of the Atlantic, and an inability to bail out faltering european economies beyond covering their minimal debt requirements, the over 'un-printing' of money courtesy of 'Dr. Ben Bernanke's Quantitative Easing Elixir of Economic Health', throw in a dash of ever increasing oil speculation and the depletion of petroleum reserves, and we have more than just a few alarm bells going off.  

If the 'End The Fed' movement is 'successful', how will China or other creditor nations feel about this?  With enough domestic problems of their own, these relatively poor people have been working long days, weeks, and years in human work camps to manufacture cheap shit for our lumpenproletariat to consume, Their government has been gobbling up US debt (over a trillion dollars worth), and if the 'Fed' is ended, what will become of China's little 'trust fund' once the financial system collapses? 

Hopefully the Chinese people will see the truth, that their leaders are just slave-owners mollycoddled by western interests.   (Now these assholes are breathing down the necks of South Africa's once mighty, now gelatinous invertebrates, known as the ANC. Who have lost any of it's rebellious right to self determination by pandering to that all too Chinese fetish of giving the Dalai Lama a really hard time.  A f**king loser's club both of them…let the old mystic go visit his buddy Desmond Tutu and partake in some birthday cake, come on!)…but i digress.

Much as the immediate benefits of obliterating the Glass-Stiegel act was for US investment banks, fools rush in where angels fear to tread, much like those who most certainly couldn't resist the tasty bargains in world markets once the dust had finally settled after the collapse of 2008.  These opportunists were not unlike those curious types who wandered bedazzled and amazed onto the vastness of empty beaches just before the tsunami struck. So too will their fate be, those who caused and then capitalized on this racket and chose to build their temples on the ashes of other peoples misery.

Why protest? Let's face it, Our beloved cities are rapidly becoming moonscapes of rapid-condos, made manifest to stimulate the ravenous and insatiable appetite of developers and bankers desperate to peddle their mortgages and toxic debt to those living in cities also drowning in debt and desperate for new taxes. 'Condo Madness', is like an endless smorgasbord diet of cheeseburgers, and the compound debt from this pseudo-stimulus low interest rate fools 'recovery' will ultimately choke the arteries of economic growth, banking and send our economies , cities, governments and societies, and likely send us into a massive 2012 apocalyptian coronary.

Gil Scott Heron's prophetic musical statement 'the revolution will not be televised', now appears accurate. Yes, there are demonstrations taking place on the streets and being broadcast on FOX CNN, the BBC, and Al-Jazeera, but the 'revolution' in reality is taking place inside the individual's conscience, and the word is spreading world-wide on the internet. The web allows both fresh points of view, and dubious ones, to be cross referenced and juxtaposed against those in the mainstream media. This is a good thing, as many points of view help to create a more 'three-dimensional' perspective. There may still yet be no clear vision of what the protesters ultimately wish to achieve, but the critical first step has been taken, which is identifying that which they do not want.

How will all this end… if we look back into history, it will end peacefully, if the new way forward isn't a radical departure from the status quo. If what becomes necessary is radical change, then there will be resistance, and I fear bloodshed.  After any such battle is 'won', the joy of victory, and all it's accompanying optimism, will likely fade once the victors realize they've run from the devil they know, straight into the arms of Satan himself. Don't believe me?… just ask the Egyptians.

Remember to 'keep it light' I keep telling myself, therefore I must admit there's a side of me that wishes to detach and turn away from all this protesting, like 'Madame Yes' in everybody's favourite episode of 'The Flintstones' who once said: "So long you stoopid good lookings, I'm much too important to be captured!"

Circle Quest 270º-360º(or The Hunt For Red October part3)

It's starting to get weird!

The hemispheres of the brain, like two eyes properly aligned, can see in 3-D and therefore experience reality in a new way. Close one eye and you will see a flat representation of a three dimensional world. You will be able to discern, due to perspective, how things in the distance, as related to objects in the foreground, must be. Yet without the use of both eyes, a true experiential understanding of three dimensional space is not possible. One can stare at the random dots in a holographic pictogram, yet not see the complete image if the act of integration fails to take place. By looking beyond the image,and altering ones perspective, the magic of the holographic image begins to unfold.

Back in 'ye olde 90's', the 'buzz' in 'conspiracy' circles was coming from 'mysterious black unmarked military helicopters', but after the Iraq fiasco, it's not a stretch to imagine how they were probably just test flights conducted by the 'swell folks' at the Blackwater 'soldiers for hire' corporation, aka 'XE'. Another star contender for the spotlight was that Wile E Coyote experiment up in Alaska called HAARP, a 1.8 zillion watt bug-zapper built into the arctic permafrost, which we can roll into one big gooey ball along with the mysterious 'Area 51' in Nevada and the Pine Gap research facility in the Australian outback…Good on Ya, Mate!

Much has already been revealed about what used to be purely speculation. Yesterday's 'conspiracy' sometimes becomes today's 'ho-hum' back page news, just as much of today's 'conspiracy' speculation should become common knowledge in about ten to fifteen years, or if the Red October permits, much sooner!


The next 'port of call' on my circular sojourn is the U.F.O. phenomenon. There are simply too many well trained observers who have had intimate and very direct experience with strange craft and beings to dismiss outright as purely 'wild fantasy'. Thousands of reports from trained military pilots, several astronauts, politicians, and scientists (not to mention multiple witness encounters from civilians of good standing), have all had first hand experience of this phenomenon. Most report o having had similar experiences, despite the many official attempts over the years to quash the truth (projects Blue-Book, Grudge and Sign, also self-contradictory claims of weather balloons, crash test dummies, and 'swamp gas') 

The Final Frontier
Those who haven't had the pleasure of witnessing disc, cigar shaped, orb and triangular craft glide through our skies, making right angle turns at impossible speeds, are often quick to sit back, roll their eyes, and scoff at the absurdity of it all. All that condescending eye-rolling will become useful practice once those 'bug-headed' space-visitors show up with their 'bad-ass' rectal probe stimulators in hand.

            LAUNCH TORPEDOES!!

Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell, Gordon Cooper, and storied shuttle astronaut Story Musgrave (I couldn't resist!) have all spoken eloquently on their experiences and knowledge of UFO's. So has former Canadian Defence minister Paul Hellyer, who has gone on record as saying that UFO's are as common as airplanes in our sky, and that events on earth risk "interplanetary war"…a far out statement YES, but if true, we need to know why.

The social isolation and ridicule experienced by those who try to blow the whistle on secrecy, is enough to make one want to shut up and go back to watching 'Ultimate Fighting' or 'Dancing With The Stars'. Some gain notoriety for their courage, and if lucky, a bit of pocket change, but most become vilified by those content to remain within the friendly confines of the consumer paradigm and all it's accompanying social approval.

Keeping the truth secret breeds the 'conspiracy' speculation, which has it's roots in hard research'


It's not my responsibility to convince anybody of these concepts, theories or potential realities; the information and data is comprehensive for anyone who chooses to dig deeper and wishes to come to a greater understanding. I write about these things purely for the love of writing and the potential facilitation of this tentative dialogue.  

If your way of finding the truth, or testing the veracity of these kinds of theories, is to read well written articles in 'respected media publications', you will likely view only a narrow spectrum of what are in fact very complex phenomena. You will also likely get a 'balanced' report, equipped with opposing viewpoints presenting various 'plausible explanations' from 'experts'.  However, to dig a little deeper, one must be prepared to dust off ones 'tin-foil hat', and risk the humiliation and resulting isolation of thinking outside the limited confines of the 'two-cheek kiss' crowd.

What I mean when I speak of the 'two-cheek kiss' crowd, is a reference to those people who live without care for the stupidities of the phenomena to which I speak, and of those who enjoy the respect given to them by other members of the 'two-cheek kiss' crowd, accompanied by all the creature comforts that our opulent western lifestyle has to offer. It's ironic, yet predictable, that these same people will probably be the first to arms, pointing fingers and laying blame, whilst proposing 'solutions', once their financial/economic/paradigm rug is pulled out from under them. 

                                                   Launch a few more torpedoes (for fun)

I don't blame those who dare not risk their reputations and vicarious enjoyment of a lifestyle they KNOW exists, instead of putting themselves on the line to support a reality they have NEVER experienced. This is a crowd who will never reject anyone for being a Fabian Socialist, a Leafs fan or having atheistic philosophical views comprising of hermetically sealed left-brained eviscerations of 'the God argument', so long as you bring some balsamic vinaigrette and a fine Merlot to the dinner party ( oh, and please leave the foil hat at home).

What of all this information is in fact disinformation, or misinformation, I do not know, but it serves someones needs. Like the hunt for that elusive submarine in the Tom Clancy novel 'The Hunt For Red October', I feel the truth behind the deception within many levels of human interaction is beginning to surface, and for the simple reason that decisions made out of sync with nature's laws have chaotic consequences, or to use a colloquialism, 'our chickens are coming home to roost'. Given the political, social, financial, and environmental extremes of recent years, we now have a situation which is metaphorically not unlike some juggler on the Ed Sullivan Show, or any other variety show, who could only juggle so many pie plates or spin so many tea cups on the tops of poles at one time, without the whole thing coming crashing down. 

I feel these upcoming revelations will probably forever alter the way we relate to one another and the planet we live on. 

Already we have come a long way in consciousness and education due to our increased access to information. Unlike a computer though, it's not simply a case of 'garbage in, garbage out'. We humans have the capacity for thought, and to rationally separate what is true, from what might be, to what isn't, and make reasonable conclusions based on this.

"Hey, Kowalski?!"
Now we've reached a point where more and more people can see the consolidation of power into the hands of fewer and fewer people (as witnessed by the recent 'Occupy Wall Street protests) Many of us in the middle and lower classes, have been presented with an 'illusion of prosperity' due largely to the availability of 'cheap credit'. brought on by banks whose lending practices are made possible due to the egregious corporate assaults on the cheap labour force and desperation in the third world, as a means of justifying the taking and consuming of a larger portion of our planet's precious resources. This misperception of 'personal prosperity' will continue to delude us, as it did the Irish and Greeks, until the Ponzi scheme that lies at the core of Keynesian economic theory, exhausts itself. 

Completing the circle, and parking our asses back in the eight-ten dry dock, we may yet witness another financial collapse (sometime within the next twelve days to twelve months), which is poised to crumble from the top down, quick n' tidy, at free-fall speed, as it collapses into it's own footprints… unlike that untidy crumbling of WTC 'building seven' (Intelligence headquarters in NYC) whose outrageously lopsided implosion (as we all know) was solely the result of 'fire' ;)

                                                                UP PERISCOPE!

Okay Kowalski, I have to sit down now, I think I'm becoming 'Conspira-Sea-Sick!

Circle Quest 180º-270º(or The Hunt For Red October part2)

Now the real journey is about to begin, as our submersible dives deeper, down to unfathomable depths, guided solely by our right-hemisphere contextual navigation system, truly challenging the abyss, and it's murky waters.  ...DIVE!

Submerge this!
Full integration of the analytical left-brain and contextual right-brain must be in order to fully grasp these new depths . 'Left-Brainers' are ones who see the universe as being random (atheistic, logic, coincidence, a universe without purpose) , whereas 'Right-Brainers' see everything as being inter-connected (religious, deterministic, serendipitous, or even conspiratorial). In what way are both perspectives right and wrong? I've experienced too many meaningful coincidences in my life to regard them as purely random coincidence (if they were random, then randomness and magic are one in the same).  I dare say that randomness is actually a chaotic field which can be tapped into and manipulated for personal gain, possibly using the quantum method of being aware of somethings presence without actually looking at, or in scientific terms, by not drawing a wave into particulate form. Some might call this magic. Those who cannot or refuse to recognize the value of coincidence/synchronicity as being part of the fabric of nature, miss out on it's tremendous energetic properties. Therefore, if one sets up conditions for a desired outcome, one need only sit back and allow the chaos field to work wonders for good (the betterment of oneself and others) or heaven forbid, evil (the betterment of ones position within a hierarchy at the expense of others).

My explanation could be one way of understanding how uncanny synchronicity accompany many aspects of human political interaction. Those at the true top of our power structure remain beyond reproach by using either desire, for those who wish to better their status, or fear, for those who fear a decline in status, as a means of manipulation to get the wretched souls to do their bidding for them. Like great chess masters who need not use a bishop to do anything a pawn can just as effectively do, those at the top of our world's hierarchy sit back and watch the rest of us heathens whack each other on the head, warring and protesting, whilst they opportunistically take advantage of the discord for personal gain.

Many respected researchers and authors resist the more right-brained analysis of those in the 'conspiracy field'. But to negate those views, I believe, is to cut ourselves off from an awareness which could put the frustrating warring dichotomies in their proper perspective. Many respected scholars risk depoliticizing themselves by skirting too close to the 'event horizon' of conspiratorial right-brained perceptions.

"Integration" by Milton Bradley
Being one who is 'conspiracy friendly' I entertain concepts which many trapped within 'left-brained prisons' will dismiss without second thought. As a house painter, I have little in the way of status to be lost for entertaining these possibilities. I'm happy to report that much of what is out there in 'Conspiracyland' is but a half-baked potpourri of semi-truths. Clown like speculations of silly notions like "Paul is Dead", "Elvis is Alive" or the latest seismic link between the Earth-Sun alignment and comet Elenin in relation to the national emergency drill which took place at Denver Airport a week ago last Tuesday. These loose speculations only serve to tarnish the credibility of those who entertain, and more importantly, RESEARCH alternative viewpoints, or question the official narratives.

From the many hours I have spent looking into this stuff, I can honestly say I have never come across anybody who sincerely thinks 'we never went to the moon'. This being said, 'theories' are essential to the scientific method. Even the theory of relativity, which incorporates an accurate calculation of the speed of light, is now being challenged. Yet many have always assumed this 'cosmic speed limit' to be an example of 'absolute knowledge'. That was until this past week, when the Italian physicist Antonio Ereditato, working at CERN with the Large Hadron Super Collider, presented scientific evidence to the contrary. He proved that neutrinos had defied the laws of conventional physics by exceeding the previously believed limitations for the speed of light by 60 billionths of a second.

In the world of geo-politics, theories have been proven to be fact with the revelation of deceptions like the 'Gulf of Tonkin incident', as disclosed to us by the late US Vietnam war general Robert MacNamara. This 'revelation' has proven to us 'officially', that governments and military will not hesitate to use a false pretext to advance their war agendas by manufacturing a 'false flag' event.  Therefore those so-called 9/11 theorists must also be forgiven for believing that the official story concerning the events of that infamous day is deceitful or an incomplete one at best, due to the fact that declassified documents have shown how the C.I.A. had hatched a similar plan back in the early 1960's called 'Operation Northwoods'. This scheme called for an orchestrated attack on U.S. cities, (you know, fly a few planes into buildings, etcetera) and blame the whole thing on Castro. The plan was quashed by then president John F Kennedy, before he was assassinated by a 'lone gunman' in Dallas, in November of 1963.

Then there's that uncomfortable and unavoidable obstacle called Newtonian physics, which prohibits the free fall collapse of a steel frame structure through the path of MOST resistance.  The buildings collapsed at free fall speed from temperatures insufficiently high enough to weaken substantially a steel frame structure of that size, especially given the fact that the majority of jet fuel, whose extremely high, but insufficiently low burning temperatures, was ignited the moment the planes struck. The ignited fuel created the ball of fire which blew out the sides of the buildings upon impact. I'm not even going to get into those theories about explosives pre-planted within the buildings or the Pentagon attack secrecy, the Air-Defence 'stand down', and all the other official inconsistencies, because we haven't been allowed to see the raw footage. 

(If you sincerely want to challenge yourself and ones beliefs in the official story of 9/11, may I suggest reading David Ray Griffin's excellent book The 9/11 Commission Report "Omissions and Distortions", also worth mentioning, there are over 1500 accredited Physicists and Engineers who have come forward to challenge the physics presented in the official claims)  ...DIVE!!

This brings me to another theory, and that of a 'grand conspiracy' to kill JFK. This one, when looking at the evidence and the 'deep politics', that is to say the connections which existed between Oswald, the Mob and the Communists, has quite a bit of weight to it. It also has a motive, which was to eliminate a man who used the political power of the presidency independent of the will of the 'power elite'. Kennedy, five months earlier, had been the first president since Abe "don't go to the theatre tonight" Lincoln, to bypass the banker backed currency and issue US notes.

What do I mean by the term 'power elite'? Well it's simply a term for the collection of wealthy and influential investors and the lowly minions who do their bidding on the world stage. Their job is to pull the platinum levers at the helm of major banks and large corporations (usually ones involved with the military industrial complex), organized crime syndicates, or those other minions of Eurocracy, the heavily cuff-linked,and  unelected ex-commies heading the European Commission. 

These people are comprised of many different nationalities, have "mucho dinero", and fund politicians on the promise they will always break their promises to us, and will in turn enact domestic and foreign policies which favour their own, and their owners, corporate interests (as explained in part 1). We know who THEY are, it's well documented, but if you want names, and you care, I prefer you do your own research. This way there will be no mistake when reading authors who use proper footnoting and accreditation. A good place to start though would be to research a list of the attendees of the annual Bilderberger Group meetings, a collection of warm and fuzzy folks from all walks of the global power structure.

Whether the methods of the 'Secret Government', as they are sometimes affectionately known, are done as part of some 'malevolent conspiracy', or part of a course of action which is consistent with their perceived 'self-interest' or a believed 'planetary vision', is only for those on the inside, or for those who have done the hard research, to say. In essence, these are the 'Elite', who fund the politicians who in turn appoint 'non-elected officials' of their choice, to positions of high power. Examples of such appointees are Henry Kissinger, Tim Geitner, Condoleeza Rice, Karl Rove, Philip Zelikow, and the beat goes on and on and on.  Conflict of interest accusations are also most common as researchers will often point to people like Dick Cheney (Halliburton), Michael Chertoff (Airport Body Scanners), Donald Rumsfeld (Tamiflu Vaccine), or the self-serving investment portfolios of the private council members of the W.H.O (Novartis, Glaxo Smith-Kline, Pfizer). 

However, this does not mean the people I've listed above are 'conspirators' in any way, just facilitators of an agenda based on a chosen 'philosophy', worldview, or narrative of reality. We cannot ignore, nor forget, the unelected power wielded by those well groomed individuals at the Federal Reserve, or the nepotistic relationship that Goldman Sachs, and it's 'prodigal sons', have assumed within recent US administrations.

The latest monkey-wrench thrown into the machinery is Al Qaeda's criticism of Iranian leader M. Ahmedinejad, for not attacking the US and peddling 'conspiracy theories'. This of course runs counter to Rick Santorum's claim that Iran has been responsible for more deaths of US soldiers. To hold both beliefs as being 'true'  would be considered "doublethink".  With Santorum's rhetoric: Iran=BAD, it kills many US soldiers. Whilst listening to Al Qaeda's rhetoric: Iran=BAD, does nothing except peddle 'conspiracy theories'. One of these two extremities of the 'warring polarities', (the 'Neo-Con' Santorum or the terrorist Al Qaeda), is wrong. The reality is, that both viewpoints spin the truth for political gain. Both criticisms of Iranian policy serve the interests of the people who espouse them. and both viewpoints are essential opposites acting as a battery which powers and attempts to justify the expansion of the 'Military Industrial Complex'.

The profiting and exploitation of polarities is the life-force of rulers. Divide and conquer!  Perhaps the 'internalized paranoia' of certain schizophrenics, whose imbalanced minds compensate by seeing a cosmic conspiratorial integration of all things, have touched upon a truth that we have been culturally programmed to reject?  To negate those who see an interconnectivity of events has it's consequences as well. The flip-side to this 'internalized paranoia' is the systemic 'externalized paranoia' we see all around us, in the form of draconian airport security, foreign military ventures to eradicate enemies who kill less people than do peanut allergies and bee stings, the disastrous 'war on drugs', police overreactions to peaceful demonstrations and lemonade stands, and their predictable under reaction to real violence and rioting. The proliferation into our daily lives of Alarm systems, GPS systems, CCTV camera systems, and on and on, is another example of this 'externalized paranoia', after all, there's big money in the controlling of what frightens us… but just how deep do our fears go???      ...DIVE!!!
