The New World Order has arrived and Nobel Peace Laureate President Obama is now doing what he was elected to do ~ Preside over a 1984 world Oligarchy where War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery and Ignorance is Strength. The stage is set because a common enemy (ISIS) ~ that our illegal invasion of Iraq created ~ keeps the people of Oceania in fear and sets the stage for a New World Order cemented in manipulation and control and totally out of sync with Altruism and Social cooperation ~ the driving forces of evolution and a universal loving plan in action: Allen L Roland, Ph.D
A nation of apathetic and complacent spectators watch their world explode in between commercial breaks.
The United States is just over 230 years old and is now firmly entrenched in the seventh stage of all civilizations (Apathy) with only Dependence and eventually Bondage ahead of it. Apathy is the glove into which evil slips its eager hand.
The public Hanging of Head of State Saddam Hussein was an excellent example of that evil at work ~ for his crime was bucking the aims of the Empire or global elite whereas he became more valuable to them dead than alive.
The last person the Empire wanted to talk about his betrayal by the West was Saddham Hussein who was eliminated by the Global elite as was Gaddafi in Libya ~ while Hillary Clinton laughingly exclaimed to the world “We came, We saw and He died ”
The rope used to hang Saddham is now being put up to auction at 7 Million dollars. See auction details
Power corrupts and absolute power absolutely corrupts particularly when its built on a shaky scaffold of blatant lies and manipulation.
The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through a nine stage sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacence to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependency back again into bondage. ( Attributed to Alexander Tytler )
In our present Plutocracy we have just made the transition from complacency to national apathy ~ which will surely be followed by dependence on the state and eventually bondage by the state. As Ramsey Clark, former U.S. Attorney General, has said ~ ”We’re not a democracy. It’s a terrible misunderstanding and a slander to the idea of democracy to call us that. In reality, we’re a plutocracy: a government by the wealthy.”
The obvious vehicle for this rapid shift in consciousness is FEAR. Fear, in actuality, is False Exaggerations Appearing Real (under the guise of National Security) but APATHY is a lack of interest and indifference and it has always been the Great American Sin.
Joseph Fort Newman, Atlantic Monthly, wrote about the Great American Sin of Apathy in October, 1922 ~ and it’s worth repeating now in February, 2015;
”What is the great American sin? Extravagance? Vice? Graft? No; it is a kind of half-humorous, good-natured indifference, a lack of “concentrated indignation” as my English friend calls it, which allows extravagance and vice to flourish. Trace most of our ills to their source, and it is found that they exist by virtue of an easy-going, fatalistic indifference which dislikes to have its comfort disturbed….The most shameless greed, the most sickening industrial atrocities, the most appalling public scandals are exposed, but a half-cynical and wholly indifferent public passes them by with hardly a shrug of the shoulders; and they are lost in the medley of events. This is the great American sin.”
Unless we as individuals, and then as a nation, conquer fear and apathy we are doomed to dependence and then bondage by a state ruled by the wealthy. That state of dependence is drawing near and only faith and the great courage of civil revolt and even civil disobedience can revitalize this nation .
Now, President Obama is seeking a blank check for perpetual war with his recent proposal for a new Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) ~ ostensibly targeting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The draft sent by Obama requests that Congress give its approval for military operations against ISIS or “associated persons or forces,” defined as anyone “fighting for, on behalf of, or alongside ISIL [ISIS] or any closely-related successor entity in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners.” This is formulated so as to potentially include organizations or individuals as diverse as Islamist groups in the Middle East and North Africa, homegrown “cells” in Australia, France or the United States itself, or anyone the US claims is aiding and abetting ISIS.
Obama’s proposal didn’t get rid of the law that started it all: 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force. Last summer the president used it to launch airstrikes on Iraq and Syria. As long as that law stays on the books, he can use it to override nearly any limits in new war authorizations against the Islamic State.
This is a major step in establishing a New World Order with of course America in charge but WSWS points out Obama’s blatant attempt to delude the American public in the process ~ ” In an attempt to delude the American public, which is overwhelmingly opposed to war, that the new operations are to be limited in scope, the authorization states that it does not provide for “enduring offensive ground combat operations.” Again, the wording is formulated so as to allow virtually any type of military action. There is no definition of “enduring” or “offensive.” Extended combat operations in Iraq, Syria or another country could be justified on the grounds that they were “defensive” or not “enduring.” See WSWS article
Remember that Dependence is the eighth step in the fall of civilizations ~ only to be followed by Bondage. In many ways George Orwell’s 1984 Oceania has nothing on 2015 America as Paul Joseph Watson wrote two years ago in Infowars.com ~ “Americans are now living in a society that in some cases is more draconian, more invasive and more Orwellian than the dystopian tyranny fictionalized in Orwell’s chilling classic Nineteen Eighty-Four. On almost every front, American citizens are under an equal or greater threat of abuse, control and more pervasive and high-tech surveillance than anything Winston Smith ever faced.”
And here’s the proof that Oceania is almost here ~ Wired magazine’s April cover story in 2012 covered the construction of the blandly named Utah Data Center ~ which was being built for the National Security Agency and is now completed and operational.
The NSA’S SPY NETWORK
As Wired says, “there is no doubt that NSA has transformed itself into the largest, most covert, and potentially most intrusive intelligence agency ever created.“
William Binney, a former NSA official as well as senior NSA crypto-mathematician largely responsible for automating the agency’s worldwide eavesdropping network, has gone on record (in Wired) to describe Stellar Wind (NSA’s Domestic Spying Program) and offers the best summation of its consequences to all Americans ~ “We are, like, that far from a turnkey totalitarian state.”.
And now President Obama just announced and signed an executive order in Silicon Valley where Homeland Security will be in charge of all information sharing ~ thus cementing the role of the Orwellian Department of Homeland Security, rather than the National Security Agency, as the government lead for information-sharing with the private sector. But in an interview last month, Timothy D. Cook, Apple’s chief executive, said the N.S.A. “would have to cart us out in a box” before the company would provide the government a back door to its products ~ which remains a formidable stumbling block for Obama’s intrusive and growing security state.
And thus step by step the stage will soon be set for America’s shift from Apathy to the eighth stage of a civilization’s collapse, Dependence on the State which will be quickly followed by Bondage to the State and Orwell’s prophetic words will finally become a reality ~ “There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You had to live ~ did live, from habit that became instinct ~ in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”
War is peace,
Freedom is slavery
Ignorance is strength
These words are the official slogans of Orwell’s INGSOC Party, and are inscribed in massive letters on the white pyramid of the Ministry of Truth, as Winston observes in Book One, Chapter I (1984). Because it is introduced so early in the novel, this creed serves as the reader’s first introduction to the idea of doublethink. By weakening the independence and strength of individuals’ minds and forcing them to live in a constant state of propaganda-induced fear, the Party is able to force its subjects to accept anything it decrees, even if it is entirely illogical ~ for instance, the Ministry of Peace is in charge of waging war, the Ministry of Love is in charge of political torture, and the Ministry of Truth is in charge of doctoring history books to reflect the Party’s ideology.
That the national slogan of Oceania is equally contradictory is an important testament to the power of the Party’s mass campaign of psychological control. In theory, the Party is able to maintain that “War Is Peace” because having a common enemy like ISIS keeps the people of Oceania united. “Freedom Is Slavery” because, according to the Party, the man who is independent is doomed to fail. By the same token, “Slavery Is Freedom,” because the man subjected to the collective will is free from danger and want. “Ignorance Is Strength” because the inability of the people to recognize these contradictions cements the power of the authoritarian regime. See 1984 notes
If you’re not outraged and ready for action, you’re on life support or mired in Apathy and already in Bondage. Take the Red pill before it’s too late.
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, unless your own reason and your own common sense agree. ~ Gautama Buddha – (quotation is a paraphrase of the original)
