Round of Applause for the Globalizers, Iran and Syria Sabre-Rattling, Dr. Graeme MacQueen's "The Fictional Basis for the War on Terror"

(note:  reading and watching the following should involve using one's prefrontal cortex)

Just wanted to take a moment to put my hands together and give the globalizers of the world a round of applause.  They have succeeded in their purpose to initiate unending repression and misery.  Let's give these fucks a round of applause.  And then, now, let's work to dismantle the repression, the misery  This is a process which involves acquainting yourself with difficult and complex ideas that will challenge preconceived notions.  I hope we are suited to deal with it.

Let's reflect on little reported facts, thought.  There's no telling how deep the rabbit hole goes, but the Pentagon has been planning to initiate regime change throughout Middle East since at least 9/11.  For the uninitiated, Iran and Syria have always been part of this plan.  Here's General Wesley Clark making it clear this has been the plan since day one, whenever that might have (truly) been:


It's troubling, right?  Hopefully this information isn't new.  But, you also could just be shutting out this information and rationalizing it somehow.  This will not work, in the end.

9/11 is the coup.  This fact cannot be dealt with any other way.  The stench permeates throughout several governments (U.S., Saudi Arabia, Israel, Pakistan) and government agencies, the mainstream media, and among many investors (record United Airlines put options pre-9/11).  Please watch below Dr. Graeme MacQueen's presentation at Harvard on "The Fictional Basis for the War on Terror":

I write about these things because they are of grave importance.  I hope people will wake up to these facts and also that the information culture will improve soon, because the alternative has dire implications. 

Deepak Chopra on Leading @Google, Observations

I have noted the failure of leadership in this country.  I have pointed to propagandized institutions and culture.  I have indicated that we live in a post-modern dystopia.  The question has been, what do we do about this?  Deepak Chopra offers his perspective on how power resides in individuals to "be the change they want to see in the world," and he touches on many other subjects like biological evolution, leadership qualities, consciousness, and universal characteristics of life in this field of existence.  Good questions asked by Google employees, too.  It's a given that Google employees are smart, but it's reassuring to see that first question relates to the failure of leadership in this country.

Let's take stock of 2012.  Over 7 billion people on the planet, and growing.  This has dramatically changed the dynamics of both society and ecology and will continue to do so.  The challenge we are experiencing is reconciling the polluting, repressive, failed neoliberal model with a more inclusive and sustainable system.  This begins with individuals, but we can't do it alone, first of all, and we also need to learn, listen, and talk with one another about how we have to go about this.  If it seems like we are living in a post-modern dystopia, let's do something about it, yes?  Divisions are one thing, but it's the acceptance of these divisions to prevent unity that is a personal choice.  In 2012, we are realizing that the assumptions we have made about the world are only that, assumptions, and there is absolutely no guarantee they are true.  Like Dr. Chopra says in his presentation, the human body is based on processes rather than functions.  So it is with life, that process trumps function, which is why we are collectively confirming the fact that meaningful work takes priority over neoserfdom, why organic is better than conventional, and why we need to go out and "play", like Deepak suggests is fundamental to human development.  Watch the video below for the entire presentation.

Andrew Breitbart Dies: Natural or Unnatural Causes?

The question of whether Andrew Breitbart has died of natural or unnatural causes gets to the heart of the current media climate.  Many people scoff at the mere idea that he might have been killed, but this mentality just comes across as being close-minded and willfully ignorant.  Politically motivated assassinations are a fact of history, yet it seems we suffer from a historical amnesia today, choosing to believe that things are different now, there are no secrets, everyone is always trying to tell the truth.  Things are not different, though.  Breitbart may well have been murdered, even though I cannot say and am not taking a judgment.  However, I am open to the fact that this may be the case.  Immediately, however, I become a conspiracy theorist in today's climate of hyper-sensitized, uber-PCness.  In any death like this, autopsies, medical examinations, and, perhaps, investigations yield the results, not immediate press releases or media corporations.  It is a forfeiture of one's intellect and reason to dismiss the distasteful notion of suspicious activity.  But, this is the environment we operate in today.  Maybe it's because such views threaten one's ability to continue operating in whatever work environment they find themselves in.  Maybe people avoid discussing and exploring unpleasant truths because the personal troubles it causes.  Obviously, there are psychological walls being constructed.  Let's take those walls down.
