One of the greatest devices of derision is the ad hominem attack. It was employed by Saul Alinsky and his disciples to perfection. By the way, remember Sandra Fluke? Rush Limbaugh? Last time I checked, he was still on the air, but it did give people a strong dose of raison detre, hitting the send button with vengeance and purpose on FB, as Limbaugh awkwardly waddled through the gauntlet. But that’s another story. Back to the ad hominem stratagem.
It kind of works like this; Person A says, “911 was a lie.” Person B overhears it and says, “Oh, you’re just a nutty, truther-birther with tin foil underwear” Without even hearing their arguments there’s a slam, a personal affront, mockery and an attack on their character.
Here’s another example. The same guy says, “Everything seems to point to the Israelis doing 911. There were the dancing Israelis that were pulled over by New Jersey police because they were seen doing the Hava Negila on the roof of their van while watching Manhattan burn. They were filming the event as well. After being held for a month, they were eventually allowed to go free and return to Israel, where on Israeli TV, they admitted that they were working for the Mossad. Then of course, there’s Odigo, Dov Zakheim and the missing trillions from the Pentagon, etc.” The other person says with whiplash tongue; “Oh you’re just an anti-semite.”
That’s how the game works.
The only way to win is to stay on point, stay calm and and keep presenting the facts. This goes for almost any situation. The challenge is, is that most people are deathly afraid of anger (theirs or someone elses) or rejection, so that staying clear, calm and focused in a discussion can be extremely difficult, especially when there is social charge.
This is why the “truth” movement is important. Its not necessarily about wielding excalibur and slicing away at the lies and illusions, but it is more about the process itself and where it can lead us, which is why I believe that its a vital force to be nurtured and supported.
The truth movement is ultimately a spiritual movement or one that gets us closer to understanding our own truth; who we are, why we are and where its all headed. It might start with the “Creature From Jeckyl Island” then veer off to the “Protocols” and the “Committee Of 300.” Somewhere all notions of history become obliterated and blurred, realizing that the victors were the ones that wrote it. And here we are today, doing our very best to perform surgery on the mechanical guts of the beast with pen knives and darning needles. Whether its Obamas birth certificate, the NDAA, HAARP, Fukushima or the Gulf, truth is the name of the game.
The truth movement is a catalyst and not necessarily an end, in and of itself. I really don’t see us returning to some agrarian version of Jefferson’s commonwealth with really cool computers or networks, though it sounds mighty pleasant to me. Let’s face it, the corporate state is not going to unclench its savage jaws, just because a few of the unwashed masses camp out in open spaces.
Ain’t gonna happen.
Do you think Monsanto will simply shut down its mad plan to mutate every single plant genome on the planet and thus own it, since they’ll have the rights to the patents on very vegetable or fruit? Do you think that the likes of the Rothschilds, Rockfellers, et al are all going to wake up tomorrow and suddenly grow a conscience? That’s the truth.
This is Pluto in Capricorn baby, this is their time and they’re going to put one foot on the accelerator and the other on your neck as they drive over you in the luxury coupe of their choice.
Agenda 21 is getting cranked up as a new wave of foreclosures are about to hit, while the jobless rate ebbs closer and closer to record lows. The days of brand new sub-divisions are over, done. Builders aren’t getting tax credits for the sprawling burbtopias of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Not only that, but cities and counties will not get federal funds for services for new developments either, so even though a builder might go it alone, dauntless, with deep pockets, there’s zero guarantee that they’ll be able to get emergency services out there. Its all being supported to build mixed use, pack’em and stack’em condos in urban spaces.
This is the future.
Most people, especially, green people don’t want to hear it. That’s not the kind of truth they want to listen to. Did you know that green is the devil’s color by the way? Money and envy share the green. I bet the apple that Eve bit into was a shiny green Pippin.
The green movement is built on deception which is Nick’s stock-in-trade. No I am not knocking treating this planet a little more respectfully, I am in favor of it. But while most “greenies” will recite scenes from Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” they’ll stick their fingers in their ears when you talk about chemtrails, or corexit, or Fukushima’s ill winds. For most greenies, what’s really going down passes for a much more convenient truth. But I’m getting away from the real thread of this post. You see, we may never get to the bottom of the rabbit hole or pull the fleshy masks off the perps to reveal their scaly under-armor.
The truth movement, either by design or its inherent psychic architecture will lead the lead the individual into deeper spheres of wisdom and knowledge, where the world is meta and we vibrate higher than the crushing gravity of consensual, ignorant, uninformed, reactive, reality of platitude chirping robots.
Getting to that truth has never been more essential and perhaps its never been more available to so many either, which is frustrating given the lockdown of the media, from the top of the pyramid downward. To this day, some people still sadly believe that FOX, MSNBC and the New York Times matter.
Astrologically, we’re approaching the arrival of Jupiter in Gemini, which is the opposite of Jupiter in Sag, the most kick ass placement there is for Jupiter I might add. Jupiter in Sag takes on the big picture, while Jupiter in Gemini expands in the details, the micro to Sag’s macro. Jupiter in Gem is trivial pursuits on Adderol. Its dime store novels and in the modern world, an expanding, unending universe of apps.
The USA has Venus in Gemini in its chart. We love tabloids, game shows and the New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle. Expect even more of this with Jupiter in Gem. The “66” girls, aka the Kardashians just signed a three-year-deal for their show. Talk about Jupiter in Gemini!
But as spaceship Terra drifts ever closer to the path of the galactic center on 12/21/12, Jupiter in Gem will begin to oppose the deep degrees of Sag, where the galactic center pulses the electro plasm for the entire universe. We’ll be challenged by the enormous amounts of trivia, data, information and disinformation. Sorting through the details will be a full time job with Jupiter in Gem.
Gemini is also the sign of spycraft and deception will be stock in trade. Did you notice that CISPA, the internet surveillance bill just passed the house? Its a precursor to Jupiter in Gemini.
We won’t suffer from lack of information, in fact, we’ll be flooded with it. But information doesn’t always add up to wisdom and knowledge.
The truth movement is important because its related to being free. We can’t have one without the other and when we get right down to it, the only way we can be truly free is if we’re truthful with ourselves, ruthlessly rooting out the crap that keeps us from flowing, being open to the moment and saying “no” when its appropriate and even mandatory. Truth and freedom lead to personal sovereignty, which is the most divine state any of us can attain. Personal sovereignty equals Godhead.
The systems around us are corrupt. The people we are supposed to trust are mostly bought and paid for. They’ll fall on their own accord when we all get down and own our own truth movement, then simply find others that have done the same. That’s the only way I see this change taking place. The labyrinth of the truth movement descends into the core of the self. Its an inner journey that we impose upon the outer and as we get ready to align with the galactic center in Sag, those that are ready, willing and able to embrace the truth will be in the perfect spot. Those that aren’t, well, let’s just see how misaligned they are. It won’t be pretty.
On today’s show, I ranted on this topic and more. You can listen below.
