Today I notice a number of TIP posts which tempt me to reblog. However, too many reblogs detract from the purpose of this blog to directly promote material and would swamp my own posts. This “compilation” is another way of getting it out there in a neat way.
We have a number of common readers, not implying that the readers are ‘common’, but that they are common to both blogs, so this is wasted on them. No harm done as we are reaching the maximum number of readers this way.
In keeping with the promotion of truth and justice, in particular regarding serious world issues, these following posts are presented.
A vital factor in the world’s future. The tool for controlling complete countries without going to war or inciting regime change. (Sometimes the methods are somewhat intermingled and confused). In the case of just ‘austerity’ where a country is bankrupt and has no hope of balancing the books, no matter how much austerity is applied, political control is relinquished to outside the country and that is that! Borrowing more money increases the bankruptcy level. Trying to repay the debt, or even just the interest, cannot logically be achieved by creating unemployment and destroying manufacturing and resources capabilities is a no-win situation. Inevitably, the country is driven back into a third-world status and general poverty. (Except for the leaders and bankers, sometimes the same people).
This TIP post provides some good coverage on many aspects of ‘austerity’ but I cannot see much in the way of solutions. The Labour/Socialist proposal is promising but requires submission from the government/leaders, as far I understand it. Workable? Hmmmm!
The US finds itself in a self-imposed or self-generated social and financial decline of devastating proportions. This TIP post is a sort of overview of the relevant factors. I’ve already said plenty on this topic, search ‘Category’ “United States” if interested.
“I’m worried about the soul of our own country from the effects of what we do. That’s certainly on my mind.” – James Hillman, American psychologist. (R.I.P.), from the video, “James Hillman on Archetypal Psychotherapy & the Soulless Society.”
Here is a video commenting on the public’s response to the invasive and destructive factors of consumerism, propaganda and the unavoidable financial collapse.
A little girl asks her Daddy, “Who are the bad guys, Daddy?” “I don’t know, love!”, She comments “I don’t like bad guys!” And that is the whole crux of this lost society theme.
Aldous Huxley, is quoted regarding his “Brave New World” novel, where he predicted that the “whole world would live under a frightful dictatorship” and he now says he is concerned that “this reality is maybe just around the corner”.
This is a full-on doomsday documentary with suggested personal solutions that seem to be only short term and optimistic, but then?? There are choices – choose to watch the video, choose to believe it, choose to adopt the suggested survival ideas, or not! Choose none of these things! Probably it won’t matter too much one way or the other. What happens, happens. Personal beliefs will not make the slightest difference.
Being prepared to believe in these possibilities might help but does not provide worthwhile solutions unless you have the capacity to create an independent lifestyle.
Who knows, we might all have fairy godmothers to rescue us. Many believe in God and the return of the Saviour and a new world of Peace and Love. The very antithesis of the above evidence and predictions. That would be really great. But there is a big IF in most people’s opinions.
(Due respects to TIP, but the 3 parts of this video series are available at Sott.net here.)
If these articles have not created some doubts and soul searching, there are two more of relevance to the possibility of the worst of these scenarios becoming true.
This is another TIP post actually highlighting a number of individual articles concerning the banning and restricting private ownership of serious weapons. Another law change making a mockery of the US Constitution and its Amendments. The right to carry arms has long been the pride and measure of freedom held dear to Americans. This is being attacked, in fact beaten.
Finally, a ‘Golden Rule’ post which besides mentioning the then proposed UN gun ban laws, reveals the frightening other-side of this security coin, the arming of State departments and organizations for reasons that are undoubtedly shaky and suspicious, and, the establishment of internment camp facilities.
As they say in the Classics – Go Figure! Doomsday Conspiracy Theories or Possible/Probable Realities? How can one ignore or differently interpret the evidence presented?
