On The Fault Lines of Change

Globalisation-v-Localisation

Virtually everything that conventional wisdom teaches about ‘economics’ is undergoing changes of an almost seismic nature at this time. Albeit mostly beneath the surface of superficial day to day activities.

The old model, which is still being forced along the aging and unbending tracks of tunnel vision determinism, teaches that ‘economic growth’ is the be-all and end-all of planetary prosperity. Never mind that it is quite literally ‘costing the Earth’ – and will require another five Earth’s if all seven billion citizens are to achieve the supposed goal of attaining a ‘standard of living’ equal to that of post-industrial countries like Northern Europe.

Yet, according to its protagonists, an eternally expanding globalized economic market place remains the only valid prescription for this long suffering and deeply wounded planet. They still adulate notorious figure heads of the past, such as Adam Smith and John Maynard Keynes, neither of whose visons of a sustainable economic order have proved equal to the actual task at hand.

A Scandal in Our Skies

In my last post ‘The Global Warming Matrix’, I showed how the vast military industrial complex which stands behind the promotion of global warfare, has been almost completely left out of the climate change debate. And yet it contributes the largest single volume of particulates associated with what scientists have claimed to be the causes of climate change.

The level of denial surrounding this state of affairs, is truly remarkable. However, it is matched by another equally remarkable phenomenon. The conspiracy of silence which surrounds the almost daily appearance of great streams of artificial, non-dissolving jet trails spreading out across our skies, eventually causing a dull haze which blocks out normal levels of sunlight.

The Three Ugly Sisters: TTIP, CETA and TISA

One knows to be on one’s guard immediately one hears that The USA and European Union are negotiating some ‘big deal’ on transatlantic trade. Sure, big deal – in trading terms – typically means big power, big money and big mess. But when one also hears that it’s all being done in secret, then one has to add ‘big scam’ too.

The designers of the trade agreements claim that they will bring greater GDP and more jobs at both ends; a view which has been widely challenged by those likely to be on the receiving end.

So let’s spell it out: TTIP stands for Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. It’s the big brother brokering of new trade deals between The USA and the European Union. CETA stands for Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement. It is pretty much the same deal, but is being brokered by Canada and the European Union. And lastly there’s TISA: Trade in Services Agreement, also involving the USA and EU, with some other Countries also in on the act. Here, it is ‘services’ that are under the spotlight. (more…)

NATO, Agent for the Provocation of War

A Letter from Occupied Poland

Poland, a Country repeatedly occupied by foreign armies in the past, is once again suffering the humiliation of foreign troops encroaching upon her sovereign territory. Only this time, the occupying armies are under the flag of NATO and the agenda is the establishment of an ostensibly anti Russian ‘war theatre’ – a logistical bridge-head in preparation for a possible Third World War.

Not surprisingly, I am deeply troubled by this manoevring. As a British citizen working in Poland for the past fourteen years, I feel a keen sense of the injustice being perpetrated upon the Polish people. Most fail to realize that the nation is being led down a road which could end-up establishing a dangerous precident: a near permanent US led foreign army on Polish soil.

Perhaps the most disturbing part of this ‘occupation’ is that it is being welcomed with open arms by the Polish government, which appears obsessed with the notion that the Russian Federation may be planning to invade Poland. But any realistic evidence for this is entirely lacking, rendering the entire exercise nothing short of criminal.

The degree of carefully controlled NATO propaganda being put out by the national government is unprecedented in recent history. It resembles, but is far more efficient, than the techniques used by the Communists during their occupation of pre 1989 Poland. This resemblance is reinforced by that fact that the present government (Pis), has taken a 100% controlling influence of the Country’s media in order to reinforce its position. (more…)

Calling Forth the Great Revolution

Real revolution starts from within. There can be no outward revolution without an inward revolution to start the fire.

The word revolution derives from the word ‘evolution’, a process of growing awareness. So ‘re’volution is a return, a revisiting, of a state of growing awareness. In this case, a dynamic state, as per the revolution associated with the complete turning of a wheel through 360 degrees.

There is no other way of changing a society than through the process of change in the individuals who make up that society. Nor is it possible to change people from outside. However, it is possible to inspire an awakening, or reawakening of the individual or individuals, through sharing awakened energy.

This is the essential significance of the word ‘guru’ or teacher. But rare indeed is the guru who both preaches and practices true awareness raising. Holistic awareness. For these are true revolutionary qualities.

But revolution does not usually feature in the consciousness raising messages of gurus. Maybe this is because most stop at the first station and then float up to the ether beyond. That station stop goes under the heading ‘spiritual emancipation’. However, spiritual emancipation is not synonymous with
holistic change, the only force capable of catalysing true revolution. (more…)

Seven Stumbling Blocks on the Road to Consciousness

The purpose of Life is to Live! But upon arrival on this Earth it quickly becomes apparent that this is not the agenda. Ninety nine percent of what’s going on here is not about enhancing human creative potential, but about suppressing it.

It’s about stepping onto an invisible ladder whose rungs form the seemingly inviolable rules of a stagnant, pyramid posturing status quo. A status quo which has almost nothing to do with growing, but a lot to do with decaying. With becoming a well adapted slave in a world whose task masters are kings of a two dimensional sub reality.

That reality consists of a monotonous fixation on the acquisition of power, money, prestige and preeminence. A world in which a quite deadly lack of awareness remains the prevailing condition; ruthlessly maintained by a small cabal in whose interests it is to keep things exactly as they are, lest some unguarded rebellion should dislodge them from their imperious, sterile thrones.

Why a European Super State Must Be Resisted

The European Union is a centralised super state trading block whose conceptual origins lie in the Third Reich of Hitler’s Nazi Germany.
The concept of ‘global trading blocks’ was already well established under Hitler’s regime, but their origins go back further: to the British Royal Society. Post British Empire colonial ambitions were hatched around the desire to form a number of global trading empires whose leadership would be essentially elitist and corporate, with banks mostly at the helm.
Here lies the origin of the ‘free trade’ concept. A trading pattern which is anything but ‘free’ due to the fact that it is designed to prevent any one country stopping any other country from resisting the import of products that it has no need or no wish for: I.E GMO maize and soya, beef raised using growth hormones or sweat shop mass produced cheap goods that undermine the ability of the blocking country to fairly trade its own quality home-made items.
Free Trade is controlled by the World Trade Organisation, another autocratic top down institution the majority of whose board is composed of the CEO’s of the World’s largest multinational and transnational corporations with a sole interest in profit and power. A hallmark of the neo conservative and neo liberal capitalist dream (nightmare) which is dying a painful death even as I write. (more…)

The Original Sin – A Myth Whose Time Is Up

Of all the deceptions pulled on humanity over the ages, The Original Sin is probably the most devastating. Yet hugely successful from the perspective of the perpetrators.

Almost everywhere the doctrine of Christianity forged its zealous mission to convert the masses, so the Original Sin accompanied it. Imposing the rationale of guilt on untold millions whose open minds no doubt thought they were receiving a message of emancipation and light.

Not so my friends, you were in fact receiving a message just about as dark as darkness gets!

The extraordinary power of a message, properly formed, packaged and publicized, is something we have all come to learn a lot about in recent decades. ‘The medium is the message’ declared Marshall McLuhan back in 1964. And that edict could easily pass for the moment the first biblical texts let it be known that a man called Adam and a woman called Eve got the whole human race off to a very bad start … from which it appears to have never recovered.

There’s a Seal On The Soul

. . . . . that cannot be removed

None of us who were raised in the orthodox Christian Tradition are likely to remember the moment when the priest placed his index finger on our foreheads and moved it so as to record the shape of the cross on our tiny brows.

Yet this moment becomes a symbolic and strategic ‘freeze frame’ within the wider context of our initiation into the control system called ‘society’.

Some at the receiving end of this ritual have gone on to repeat it with their own children. Holding, or passing to the priest, the little bundle of innocence so that the mark of the cross can be painted onto that beautiful expanse which links the two temples. But there’s one thing one can almost certainly count on, the fact that almost nobody truly understands what they are doing. (more…)

Heavy Hearts, Heavy Metal and Eagles of Death

The Paris Deception

France has, on the back of the horrific slaughter of innocents in Paris on Friday 13th November, emerged as the new flag carrier for ‘the war on terror’, eclipsing both the USA and the UK – whose ‘special relationship’ is a partnership founded on the pursuit of war.

France’s president Hollande has performed the mirror like sequel of George Bush’s post 9/11 declaration of a ‘war on terror’. A war directed at the supposed perpetrators of the twin towers attack of 2001. Bush followed-up with his phony counterfeit proclamation on the need to ‘defend national security’ by invading the ‘evil empires’ of Iraq and Afghanistan, in full knowledge of the fact that the destruction of the World Trade Organisation was a carefully planned inside job.
