Jack Donovan: Becoming the New Barbarians

The PlanetPrisoner ran across this analysis of the situation of today’s man and provides a point of view well worth its consideration.  It surprised me to learn, after reading this paper, that Donovan is gay.  I would have never known by simply reading this piece.  He seems to have a mindset of homosexuality that I have never ran across before.  Donovan emphasizes the importance of masculinity, the male role.  The viewpoint is completely against the grain of mainstream homosexual views.  It seems that Donovan may be coping with his manhood as a gay man by these justifications…or not.  I consider most of his writings to be worth an objectionable point of view, and I view them in their absolute….rather than the opinions of a gay male.

The PlanetPrisoner does not condone the gay agenda as it is totally against the law of God.  Being a Libertarian, I respect all man’s right of choice.

-BECOMING THE NEW BARBARIANS

Jack Donovan · December 23, 2013

There may be a collapse. It could happen. It could happen tomorrow. Vengeful gods could hurl boulders from the sky, cleansing the earth with fires and floods. There could be blood in the streets and gnashing of teeth. A plague of locusts or killer bees, some Chinese flu, or the Zombie Apocalypse. Your debit cards might run empty and your “smart”phones might get real dumb. We may be forced to band together in primal gangs and fight for survival. We may be forced by circumstances beyond our control to rediscover life way’s more familiar to our species—to our ancestral brains—than this endless, banal sprawl of corporate parks and shopping malls.
Or you may just get that one day as a lion, to die like you were born, kicking and screaming and covered in someone else’s blood.
It has a certain appeal.
But while any or all of that could happen (and it could all happen tomorrow), it is also possible that this broken, corrupt system could limp along for a very long time.
Yes, it should fail catastrophically. It deserves to fail. But no matter how much the world needs a reckoning or a reset button, it’s a lot easier on a day-to-day basis for people at every level of society to keep patching it together and doing the best they can until they run out of duct tape.
So . . . until that day comes . . . until everyone runs out of duct tape . . . Until then, almost everyone, even American leaders, seems to agree that America is in decline.
And during that decline, we can expect to see more of what we’ve already been seeing. For most people, that will mean a “progressive” ratcheting down of quality of life, and the lowering of expectations.
What we won’t see is some “great awakening” or a dramatic change in leadership or direction. The people who run America aren’t going to “come to their senses.”
As America declines and becomes a failed or failing state, the corporations and businessmen and bureaucrats who run it will continue to preach globalism and multiculturalism and feminism.
They will continue to condemn anything that could be considered racism or tribalism—especially among whites—until they are safely in the minority. They will continue to condemn “male sexism” and continue to promote any kind of go-girl female sexism that emasculates or devalues men. They will continue to promote reverence for their own academic priest class while condemning as “extreme” any religious belief that challenges the moral authority of progressive beliefs. They will continue to promote dependence on the State for security and income and healthcare—for life itself.
And, no matter how many “conflicts” they escalate or how many people they kill or imprison or how militarized their police state thugs become, they will officially continue to condemn “violence.”
They will continue to do all of this because it makes perfect sense for them.
If you were the rulers and toadies of a nation in decline, whose people were bound to lose wealth and status and you wanted to protect your own interests and keep your heads, why would you not want to keep those people separate, emasculated, weak, dependent, faithless, fearful and “non-violent?”
Figureheads may come and go, but I see absolutely no reason why the message will change.
Many of you may see yourselves as civilized men. Sane men in an increasingly insane, vulgar and barbaric world.
But you’re wrong! You are the new barbarians.
The official message will continue to be that:
• If you believe that all men are not created equal
• If you believe that free men should have access to firearms
• If you believe the government cannot be trusted to regulate every aspect of your life
• If you believe that race means blood and heritage — not just “skin color”
• If you see that men and women are different and believe they should have different roles
• If you believe that men should act like men
• If you believe that gay pride parades and gay marriage are ridiculous
• If you believe in some “old time religion”
If you believe any or all of those things, then, according to the State and corporations, the Academia and the media, you are a stupid, psycho, hillbilly, Neo-Nazi, woman-hating, wife-beating, homophobic throwback, reactionary Neanderthal.
You know it. Dance to it. Make it a techno remix. Because make no mistake: you are dangerous, traitorous and quite possibly seditious.
Well, I’m reminded of the words of rapper Eminem:
I am whatever you say I am If I wasn’t then why would I say I am I’m the paper and the news, every day I am Radio won’t even play my jam
It doesn’t matter what you think you are. You are whatever they say you are. They control the message. No matter how reasonable you think your message is, the radio is not going to play your jam. No matter what you think you are, to them, you are the barbarians. So own it… be it. And, if you’re going to be the barbarians, then start thinking like barbarians.
What does that mean? What does it mean to be a barbarian? Classically speaking, a barbarian is someone who is not of the State, of the polis. The barbarian is not properly civilized — according to the prevailing standard of the State. His ways are strange and tribal. The barbarian is an outsider, an alien.
How must a man’s thinking change, when he is alienated by the State of his birth?
How does a man go from being a man of the polis to an outsider — a barbarian — in his own homeland?
These are important questions because if you see no viable political solution to the inane and inhuman trajectory of the progressive state — and I don’t — then any meaningful change is going to require a lot more than collecting signatures or appealing to the public’s “good sense” or electing the right candidate.
What you need is to create a fundamental change in the way that men see themselves and their relationship with the State. Don’t worry about changing the state. Change the men. Cut the cord. And let them be born to a state of mind beyond the state.
Show them how to become barbarians and break the sway of the state. How do you do that? Well, that’s something I’m going to be thinking and writing about for the next few years.
But I can offer four lines of thinking that I think could be helpful.
1. SEPARATE “US” FROM “THEM”
This conference is about the future of identity. Which identity? Who are we talking about? Who are we? When I talk to guys about what is happening in the world right now, they’re quick to tell me what we should do about it, but who is this we?
You and the corporations that sell you garbage food ruin your land and outsource your jobs? You and the “expert” shills who turn your values into “psychological problems?” You and the paid-for media that mocks you? You and the Wall Street bankers who financialized the economy for their own short-term gain? You and the bureaucrats who want to disarm you and micromanage every aspect of your life? You and the politicians who open up the borders and fall all over themselves to pander to a new group of potential voters instead of working for the interests of the actual citizens of the country they swore to represent?
That “we?”
Americans, especially, are used to speaking in terms of “We the people.” But there are 300 million people in the United States and that’s a lot of “we.” Be more specific.
Be more tribal.
One of the best pieces of writing advice I ever got was this: never say “people” when you mean “men.” Well, my advice to you is to never say “we” when you mean “they” and never say “us” when you mean “them.” Stop using democratic language. Stop pretending that we are all on the same team, because we’re not. And we don’t have to be. Decide who you really care about. Figure out what you have in common. Define your boundaries. Decide who is in and who is out. The people who are in are “us.” Those people are “we.” Everyone else this “they.”
2. STOP GETTING ANGRY BECAUSE THINGS DON’T MAKE SENSE!
Almost nothing you read or hear in the news today seems to make any sense at all.
People get so angry, so frustrated, so betrayed. It’s like “our leaders” are crazy or stupid, or both. It doesn’t make sense to put women in the infantry. That’s obviously crazy! It doesn’t make sense to encourage kids to take out college loans they’ll never be able to pay back. It doesn’t make sense to invite people into the country when you cannot afford to care for the people who are already here. That’s nuts!
It doesn’t make sense to start wars and then say you’re trying to “win hearts and minds.” War is not a good way to win hearts and minds! And worrying about hearts and minds is not a good way to win a war!
It doesn’t make sense that bankers and CEOs get golden parachutes and go on vacation or get jobs in the administration after knowingly and intentionally destroying companies, jobs, lives, the environment — whole segments of the economy!
But if you realize that they — the people who run the country — are doing things to benefit them and not you, everything makes perfect sense.
Consider the possibility that America’s leaders really don’t care if American soldiers live or die. Consider the possibility that American colleges and bankers don’t care if you live the rest of your life in debt to them. They’d probably prefer it. Consider the possibility that American politicians care more about keeping their jobs in the short term and looking good in the media than they do about what happens to the people of their country in the long term. Consider the possibility that “you” are not part of an “us” that “they” care about. I promise that if you meditate upon this, things will start to make a lot more sense.
If you let go of the idea that these people are supposed to care about you or the country, and you allow yourself to see them as gangs and individuals working to further their own interests, you can relax and appreciate their crafty strategy.
Let go of foolish expectations about what these people should be doing. Step back and see them for what they are. Don’t be mad. Don’t be outraged. Be wise.
As Nietzsche recommended: be carefree, mocking, and violent.
3. DE-UNIVERSALIZE MORALITY
Men who were raised with American, Egalitarian, “Late-Western” values want to be “good men.” They want to be fair and just, and they want to be just to everyone. This can be absolutely paralyzing.
It really creates an internal conflict for men—good men—who are especially athletic or who have some kind of military or police background. They were taught and they believe in good sportsmanship and equal justice.
They want to do the “right thing,” no matter what. They want to be Batman.
However, it is also in the nature of these men—even more than other men— to think vertically, hierarchically, tribally, to think in terms of “us” and “them.” To evaluate others naturally, primaly, by the masculine, tactical virtues of strength, courage, mastery and honor.
But as soon as the football game or the superhero movie is over, progressive America goes back to hating and punishing those virtues. Progressive America goes back to hating and punishing men who act like men. These “good guys”… these guys who want to be heroes get blamed and played and dumped on and treated like garbage.
No matter what the progressive American message is, when it comes to men who act like men—especially white men—no one really cares if they get treated justly or fairly.
Still, these “good guys” don’t want to exclude women from anything because it seems unfair they have sisters and mothers and they want everyone to have a chance. But women—as a group—don’t care when men feel excluded.
In fact, when men object to anything, groups of women are the first to call them “whiners” and “losers.” “Good” white guys as a group care about what happens to black people as a group. They want to make sure that blacks are being treated fairly and equally and they go out of their way to make sure they aren’t “discriminating.”
Do black people as a group care what happens to white people as a group? Does a Mexican dad with three babies care whether or not some white kid from the “burbs” can get a summer landscaping job?
The problem with these late Western values is that they work best as intra-tribal values.
They only work when everyone else is connected and interdependent. Fairness and justice and good sportsmanship promote harmony within a community. But at some point, you have to draw that line. You have to decide who is part of that community and who is not.
You cannot play fair with people who don’t care if you get wiped off the map. You don’t have to hate everyone who isn’t part of your tribe, but it is foolish to keep caring about people who don’t care about you.
These heroic types are the natural guardians of any tribe, but their heroic natures are wasted and abused when they are asked to protect everyone, even enemies and ingrates and those who despise them.
If Western Barbarians are going to hold onto any portion of their western heritage and identity, they need to resolve these moral conflicts.
They don’t necessarily need to abandon morality or moral virtue, but they need to pull in their aegis and become, as in Plato’s Republic,”noble dogs who are gentle to their familiars and the opposite to strangers.”
Be morally accountable. But only to the tribe.
If they are going to prosper and endure in a failing nation, the New Barbarians must give up the tragic, misunderstood hero routine and realize that they aren’t Batman. Why would anyone want to be?
4. BECOME INDEPENDENT FROM THE STATE, AND INTERDEPENDENT BETWEEN EACH OTHER
The United States of America and its parent corporations offer a wide range of products and services. All of them have strings attached and the more you depend on them, the easier it is to control you.
It is not really much of a threat to them if you get online and “like” a naughty page or vent your lonely, impotent rage, so long as the rest of your identity folds neatly into the bourgeois American lifestyle.
So long as you still go to a make-work job at some big company and keep yourself busy for 40 or 50 or 60 hours a week so you can purchase their wide range of products and services.
And then, in the time you have left, you go online and you get to be Orthodox guy or Roman guy or Odinist guy and post cool pics of Vikings and Centurions and Crusaders.
But that’s not a real identity or a real tribe or a real community. By all means, use the Progressive State and take whatever you can from it while there is still something left to take, but if you truly want some kind of “alternative lifestyle” to what the state has to offer, if you want to maintain some kind of tribal identity that can endure America’s decline and collapse—also known as a sudden absence of adequate products and services—instead of “community organizing” on the Internet in your underwear or retreating to a country compound with the wife and kids, bring some of those Internet people close to you and live near each other. Take over a neighborhood or an apartment complex, start businesses and provide services that people really need.
It’s great to have writers and thinkers, but you also need mechanics and plumbers and seamstresses. Serve everyone, but be loyal to people “in the family” and make them “your own.”
It doesn’t have to be some formal thing. Don’t issue a press release. Just start quietly building a community of like-minded men and women somewhere. Anywhere.
Don’t worry about creating some massive political movement or recruiting thousands or millions of people. Don’t worry about changing the state. Barbarians don’t worry about changing the state. That’s for men of the state — who believe in and belong to the State.
Shoot for 150 people. A small, close-knit community of people working together to become less dependent on the State and more dependent on each other.
Recent immigrants—many of whom are literally “not of the State”—can serve as examples. It wasn’t long ago that the Irish and Italians lived in insular communities. Think of Russian parts of town.
Look at places like Chinatown in San Francisco: every few blocks, you see these buildings marked. Something . . . something . . . something . . . “Benevolent Association.”
Sounds nice, right? Could be a front for Triad Gangs. Could be there to help Chinese schoolchildren. I have no idea. But I am sure that it is for Chinese people. There are also doctor offices and law offices and repair shops and grocery stores. There is a whole network there of people taking care of their own people first.
There is a community there of people who are exclusive, insular and interdependent. They go to each other first for what they need. They are harder to watch and harder to control. They are less dependent on the State and more dependent on each other. And when the collapse comes, they’ll take care of each other first, while everyone else is waiting for the state to “do something.”
Whoever your “us” is, whatever your “tribe” is, it’s just an idea in your head until you have a group of truly interdependent people who share the same fate. That’s what a tribe is. That’s what a community is. That is the future of identity in America.
Land belongs to those who take it and hold it. And this land is no longer your land or my land — officially it’s their land. You may not be able to reclaim it, at least not just right now, but you can become and live as happy Barbarians, as outsiders within, and work to build the kinds of resilient communities and networks of skilled people who can survive the collapse and preserve your identities after the Fall.

I’m chasing down a memory
Of the way that things used to be
Kids playing underneath an old street light
Knowing they were safe when they laid down at night
I’m looking for something I ain’t seen in a while
I’m looking for a factory
Where a man can feed his family
Not worried about them moving it south
Closing the doors and shutting ‘er down tomorrow
I’m looking for America
Chorus:
The land of the free and the home of the brave
Seems like I just woke up one day and it was gone, long gone
But I know in my heart it’s still out there
Can somebody please tell me where
I’m looking for, America
I’m searching for an old church steeple
Where inside you’ll find people
Who live their lives unashamed
And they ain’t afraid to say…

PBS Frontline’s ‘United States of Secrets’ must be watched | Opinion Northwest | Seattle Times.

The PBS documentary program, “Frontline,” has topped itself with an extraordinary and deeply disturbing report on the National Security Agency’s domestic surveillance abuses.

We know NSA contractor Edward Snowden is hiding out in Russia because of the secrets he leaked, but the story goes well beyond him. Long before Snowden, there were NSA

employees and security experts – people who spent their professional lives in and around state secrets – who were shocked and appalled by what they saw their government doing.

“This is as close to the complete picture as anyone has yet put together — and it’s bigger and more pervasive than we thought,” said veteran “Frontline” filmmaker Michael Kirk. The first installment aired Tuesday night, and can be watched online at this link.

…understatement: PlanetPrisoner highly recommends this PBS film to be watched and shared, by all.

Muscle Shoals -2613 Jackson Highway, Sheffield, AL, USA

Independent Lens, NPT, showed a film tonight that knocked me off my feet.  It is about Rick Hall, FAME, and the Swampers foundation of the Muscle Shoals Sound Studios.  -EXCELLENT FILM- I’ll soon be 3 score and never knew of the fact that most of the great music I grew up with, had recordings of, whose artists concerts I attended, and have imprinted memories of…was recorded in a small modest studio just south of Sheffield, AL using an awesome NEVE8078 …at a place called Muscle Shoals.  Really feeling like I had slept through the ‘music listening’ part of my life, I watched this film tonight in awe.  I’ll be StartPageing the history and happenings of  Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, aka. FAME Recording Studios, off and on until I truly gain the as much of it’s richness as possible.  What is regretful is the fact that I worked on a project for almost 2 weeks just last year….right down the street from this epic gathering place and didn’t even know it was there!!  …argh!   If you really love ALL genre of music from the late sixties thru even today you will truly love clicking these links….and also watch the film yourselves.

This IS where it all happened, and where most began.

This story is true Americana musical history which brought artists from all over the world.  What is so unique about this story, as you will read below, is the fact of the four musicians who have played background and full arrangements for Grammy winning artists [some of whom were ‘nobodies’ until they went to Muscle Shoals].

Muscle Shoals Sound

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:  The Muscle Shoals Sound Studio was formed in Sheffield, Alabama, in 1969 when a group of four session musicians called The Swampers decided to leave the nearby FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals to create their own recording set-up.

The four, Barry Beckett (keyboards), Roger Hawkins (drums), Jimmy Johnson (guitar) and David Hood (bass), then became known as The Muscle Shoals Sound Rhythm Section and were the first rhythm section to own a studio and eventually run their own publishing and production companies.

Their backing and arrangements have been heard on many recordings, including major hits from Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, and the Staple Singers, but a wide range of artists in popular music recorded hit songs and complete albums at the studio.

NEVE8078 in London, England…only 12 exist in the entire world.

The group first came together in 1967 and initially played sessions in New York and Nashville, as well as on recordings made at the Rick Hall‘s FAME facility. The initial successes in soul and R&B led to the arrival at the Muscle Shoals Sound studios of more mainstream rock and pop performers, including The Rolling Stones, Traffic, Elton John, Boz Scaggs, Willie Nelson, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Dr. Hook, Elkie Brooks, Millie Jackson and Julian Lennon.

The studios at 3614 Jackson Highway were relocated to an updated and larger facility on Alabama Avenue in Sheffield in the late 1970s, but the original building still sees occasional use as a recording studio. The Black Keys album, Brothers, was recorded there in 2009 and achieved Grammy Award success in 2011. Recording equipment was brought into the former studio to make the album.

The original Muscle Shoals Sound Studios building is listed on The National Register of Historic Places.[1] In June 2013, it was sold by businessman Noel Webster, who kept the building maintained, to the Muscle Shoals Music Foundation. Their goal is to eventually make the historic building a music museum.[2]

The Alabama Avenue studios were sold in 1985 to the Jackson, Mississippi based soul and blues label, Malaco Records, which also bought the MSS publishing rights. Malaco used the Sheffield studios for their own artists, including Johnnie Taylor, Bobby Bland and Little Milton, as well as continuing to operate their own facility in Jackson. The building was bought by a film and television production company in 2005 after Malaco decided to close the studios, selling the two Neve sound desks to studios elsewhere in the U.S, according to an article in Billboard magazine.

Filmmaker Greg Camalier premiered his documentary Muscle Shoals at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2013. It is about Rick Hall, FAME, and the Swampers foundation of the Muscle Shoals Sound Studios, The film includes interviews with Bono, Alicia Keys, Mick Jagger, and Keith Richards.

The Muscle Shoals Sound Rhythm Section are referred to as “the Swampers” in the lyrics of Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Military Suicide …outnumbers casualties

Mar 4, 2014 5:42PM ET /

The Military’s Suicide Rate Is Much More Complicated Than Combat Stress

Suicide rates have historically been lower in the military, because recruiting tends to weed out some at-risk people (like elderly men, for example, who have

Support the TROOPS….NOT the WARS

a higher suicide rate than the population at large). That changed in 2008, when the number of military suicides surged ahead. The suicide rate for civilians of similar age and demographics to the Army has remained relatively level at around 19 per 100,000 people. But during the last decade of war, that’s changed. In 2013, the Department of Veterans Affairs released the startling figure that 22 veterans were killing themselves every day, or one soldier every 65 minutes.  That’s 8030 in 2013!  …or over 15 times more than in 2012!!
524 suicides in 2012:
by Alan Zarembo
LA Times, June 17, 2013

In data compiled by the Defense Department on military suicides, perhaps the most surprising statistic is that between 2008 and 2011, 52% of service members who took their own lives had never been deployed to Afghanistan or Iraq.
That figure, which challenges the popular belief that exposure to war is the primary driver of a surge in suicides, became the basis for an L.A. Times story Sunday.
But another statistic in the story also deserves attention: 524.
That is the number of suicides in the military in 2012.
To those who have followed the issue, it may seem like a misprint. The Pentagon recently announced that the 2012 total was 349.
The Defense Department, however, has only tracked suicides of military personnel who were on active duty when they died.

SUICIDE CONTEST: Study Reveals Game Among Army Commanders to See Who Could Abuse their Subordinates the Worst

Former Army Anthropologist Looking at Suicide Causes Found Numerous Cases of Army Leaders Who Held Competitions to See Who Could “Smoke” their Troops the Worst … and Push them the Brink of Suicide

by Daniel Zwerdling
National Public Radio, Feb. 6, 2014

*Editor’s Note – This story perhaps explains better than any so far in the reporting of military culture, and why so many young men and women would rather die than continue serving in the military. The “toxic leader” issue has been mostly ignored by reporters and experts examining the circumstances behind military suicide. This report is shocking, and in this writer’s opinion, reveals criminal behavior among Army leaders charged with the health and welfare of their subordinates.

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without
a license, but not for being in the country illegally …
you might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents permission to go on
a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get
an abortion …
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to show identification to board an airplane,
cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book,
but not to vote for who runs the government …
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding
citizens from owning gun magazines with more than
ten rounds, but gives 20- F-16 fighter jets to the crazy
new leaders in Egypt ….
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas,
but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a
sugary drink might make you fat …

If your government believes that the best way to
eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions
more …
You might live in a country run by idiots.

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school
for saying his teachers “cute,” but hosting a sexual
exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable …
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If hard work and success are met with higher taxes
and more government intrusion, while not working
is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid,
subsidized housing and free cell phones …
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If the government’s plan for getting people back to
work is to incentivize NOT working with 99 weeks
of unemployment checks and no requirement to
prove they applied but can’t find work …
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself
makes you more “safe” according to the government …
You might live in a country run by idiots.
 
 
If you are offended by this article, I’ll bet you voted
for the idiots who are running, and ruining our great country today.

Obama Funds Insurers, Dumps Insured

Obama lets insurers keep more profit, pay less for care | The Daily Caller.

Obama LIES.... again!

Republican Tennessee Rep. Diane Black says that the Obama administration’s most recent Obamacare rule change will result in insurance companies keeping more profits while paying less for customers’ health care needs.

“I am writing to express my concern with the proposed rule change released on Friday, March 14th that would allow insurance companies to keep an additional two percent of premiums for purposes other than medical care…your department is now proposing to increase the amount of money that insurance companies will be allowed to retain for profit,” Black wrote in a letter Tuesday to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, which was obtained by The Daily Caller.

HHS’ Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services quietly introduced the new rule Friday, which relieves insurance companies of some of the damage about to be levied on them by Obamacare-related administrative costs.

“In the proposed rules, you have indicated that this adjustment in the ‘medical loss ratio’, or 80/20 rule, is due to the possibility of increased administrative costs in 2015. However, adjusting the percentage that insurance providers are required to spend on medical care by two percent would have the combined impact of reducing the amount that insurance providers will be required to pay for people’s medical care while increasing the amount that insurance companies are allowed to retain for profit and for executive pay,” Black wrote.

“This is deeply concerning, as it could result in higher out of pocket costs for consumers solely for the benefit of the insurance industry.”

I watched ‘Collective-Evolution‘ tonight followed by ‘Garbage Warrior‘.  All that I can say at this point is ….that I have been so caught up in hammering at the elitists, learning about chemtrails / aspartame / derivatives / false flags / Morgan / Rothschild and others….. filling my days with trying to stay on top of what they are up to, filling my mind with ways to try to expose them……I have not been able to see the forest because all that I thought I saw was the trees!!!

Earthship Biotecture

The film ‘Garbage Warrior‘ truly awakened my open, resourceful, inventive mind that has truly been dormant.  Since awakening to the TRUTH [2005] my time has been spent keeping up with the evil lurking all around us instead of moving ahead and beyond its control.  Seeing  the documentary film ‘Gargage Warrior’ tonight seems to have taken a burden weighing a ton off of my shoulders.  Having spent a short career in architecture, I gave up because of the bureaucracy involved in trying to develop true design.  I did accomplish building a few designs that were not the norm, but I let the system win and folded just before 911.  I am seeing now, that I have mainly been wandering around with my career and personal life since, without even realizing it.  Michael Reynolds, renegade New Mexico architect, ….I have read your message -Loud and Clear.

I don’t normally get personal on this site…. but seeing both of these films on the same nite has seemed to set a ‘restore point’ in my internal hard drive….  I must think, I must sleep …and I must dream for now.  I have been way too personal on this post…….

Preparedness Manual

..the link for the [PDF] 509 page manual is at the bottom of this article.

Normalcy Bias: the idea that people believe nothing bad will happen because it hasn’t happened before. It’s also known as analysis paralysis, incredulity response or the ostrich effect. Of course, that last one refers to someone behaving like an ostrich who puts its head in the sand.

Situational Awareness: paying attention to your environment and those around you. And you don’t have to be on a survival camping trek in the wilderness to put this into practice.

‘I won’t say it, I won’t see it, I won’t hear it’ …it will just go way.

Most Americans, sadly enough, practice the first of the above mental attitudes.  It doesn’t seem to matter how many natural disasters occur or how many toxins are announced in our foods or how many tic-tac-toe sessions appear in the sky above or how many disclaimers appear at the end of a Big Pharma drug ad or how many fiat dollars are taken from us to be given to the Wall Street crowd or untouchable global banks… the average American seems to think that he/she shall awaken in the morning and all shall be as it always is.  This attitude is truly the most dangerous situation in our world today, leading to the negative issues that impose upon our cultures, personal lives, families, and our world’s future.

Monument Valley

Most tend to fill their lives with sports stats, the latest gadget that the most popular movie star is possessing… or worst of all, most think that a fulfilling life is all about going to a J.O.B for 10 hours a day / 50 weeks a year,  then going to DisneyWorld for 2 weeks spending most of the money saved over those 50 weeks.  Before you know it, …your kids are grown, your partner is someone else, your physical health has deteriorated.  We send our kids to soccer, ballet class, winter camp, summer camp, public schools and more without ever simply taking the time to sit down as a family, teaching and sharing the basic skills needed to survive in our world.  The media and systems in place create the environment which lends most of us to detach from the basic practices that once abounded in our world and expanded individual thinking / cultural progress.

Sierra Nevada

Crime rates soar, belief and faith in our Creator diminishes, the ‘family’ slowly disappears, empathy becomes sympathy ….as Normalcy Bias takes over.  The tendency of narcissism is a normal trait for the 2-6 year old child, NOT an adult.  Narcissism in adulthood creates failing personal achievement and a society that forgets about its elderly and poor.

T R U T H N O W defines preparedness as: having the capability of

providing yourself and those around you with the wonderfulness of life and living in whatever environment you choose to live in and under any natural or imposed change in that environment that may occur.  Preparedness is a word that many misunderstand.  Preparedness is not all about hoarding guns, ammo, bunkers, and batteries.

There is looming threat lurking in our immediate future of an occurrence which would literally send our world back in time.  No electricity, no internet, no ATM machines, empty grocery shelves, no police protection…..a CME [coronal mass ejection] has happened before and shall happen again, not a question of ‘if’ rather a question of ‘when’.  The CME of 1859 was an event that was

CME

documented world-wide.  At that time, the main method of communication was telegraph and the ‘Pony-Express’.  People grew their own food, made their own clothes, were aware of natural homeopathy medicines… were essentially self reliant.  The CME event set telegraph wires and poles aflame and even electrocuted the operators.  It was also documented as a most spectacular light show in the night skies.  …..TODAY is another story.  Some figures put 90% of our world population have little if no knowledge of growing food or simple first-aid.  The US power grid relies upon roughly 350 mainframe power generators that, during a CME, would be lifeless for months if not years.  This would send us back into 17th-18th century environments.  …Not ‘IF’, but ‘WHEN’.

It is written in books of old, of many faiths, of many cultures that knowledge of such events happening and the frequency of them is practically a given.  Many scientists and theologians understand that it is a point of ‘WHEN’ and not ‘if’.  WAKE UP PEOPLE!  The choice is yours to hone skills and knowledge that have been used throughout the ages ….which have disappeared for almost 90% of mankind.  Are YOU one of them?

The PDF link below is a voluminous work of providing you with the awareness and knowledge needed in the event of a CME, or in a worst case man-created EMP which would devastate most of our way of life, EITHER of which would cause

complete social chaos and violence, specifically in heavily populated areas as people would be at the mercy of their own survival knowledge.

We have no idea as to ‘When’ an event may occur, although history simply proves to us that it Shall Occur.  Some feel that techno is good and it very well is, in most respects.  BUT, techno is NOT an assured permanent way of life.

Vineyard

Personal knowledge and skills in art, planting & growing food, using tools, dressing game, teaching others, etc. are abilities that have always and shall always perpetuate the citizens of Earth.

Please read, enjoy and share this wonderful reference which is useful at any age and in any era. I am not affiliated with the LDS church [contributors of the document], but you will find that this reference is packed with knowledge, links, and methods that can keep you and those you care about alive and protected during a life-changing event.

Justina Pelletier …update

GREAT news for the Pelletier family.

02/28/2014 | 10:48 AM

Mass. agency says it is actively working to return Justina Pelletier to Connecticut

By Patricia Wen / Globe Staff

Massachusetts child protection officials are actively working to return 15-year-old Justina Pelletier, the teenager involved in a year-long custody fight that’s drawn national attention, to her home state of Connecticut, a spokesman for the state Department of Children and Families said Friday in the agency’s first public comment on the case.

“Our primary goal has always been the health and well-being of Justina. We want the parents to be able to work with the providers and courts to ultimately move Justina back to her home state of Connecticut. That is the objective, and is consistent with our previous efforts to find an appropriate placement near her home,” said agency spokesman Alec Loftus.
If she were to live at her family’s home in West Hartford, Conn., child-protection officials in that state, who would likely oversee the case, would likely demand that the girl receive services at home or that she attend a day program.

Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier, reached by phone Friday morning as he was driving to the family’s weekly visit with Justina, said, “Obviously this is a step in the right direction.”
