The Best Way to Manage Slaves (And How to Avoid Becoming One)

https://www.wakingtimes.com/2018/11/02/the-best-way-to-manage-slaves-and-how-to-avoid-becoming-one/

“If you wish to keep slaves, you must have all kinds of guards. The cheapest way to have guards is to have the slaves pay taxes to finance their own guards. To fool the slaves, you tell them that they are not slaves and that they have Freedom. You tell them they need Law and Order to protect them against bad slaves. Then you tell them to elect a Government. Give them Freedom to vote and they will vote for their own guards and pay their salary. They will then believe they are Free persons. Then give them money to earn, count and spend and they will be too busy to notice the slavery they are in.” ~Alexander Warbucks

“In short: the best way to manage slaves is to erect a state, and to declare that state almighty by forcing people to consent to its law and order no matter how unreasonable, unjust, or violent that law and order may be.

Statism creates massive societies made up of people who are mostly ignorant, lazy, cowardly and indifferent to political underhandedness. As long as they are comfortable, safe, and secure in their immoderate bliss they don’t care about policy. Because of such ignorance, laziness, and cowardice, statists (soft slaves) prefer the certitude of psychological chains over the ambiguity and tension of real freedom. Hence the proclivity toward soft-slave statism rather than the hard work of maintaining freedom…”

“When freedom is outlawed, only outlaws will be free.”

Mail Bombs to Trump Critics Reminiscent of Post-9/11 Anthrax Attacks?

https://www.globalresearch.ca/mail-bombs-to-trump-critics-reminiscent-of-post-911-anthrax-attacks/5658145

“In his important book on the anthrax attacks, titled “The 2001 Anthrax Deception: The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy,” Graeme MacQueen connected the incidents to 9/11.

Falsely blamed on Muslim jihadists and their backers, the incidents were used to launch Washington’s global war OF terror, not on it. They unjustifiably justified passage of the police state USA Patriot Act, trampling on the Bill of Rights. The legislation was written, on the shelf, ready to go long before 9/11 – awaiting a pretext to introduce and enact what no free society would tolerate…

Graeme made a compelling case, connecting the anthrax attacks to 9/11 – both state-sponsored, both transformational, most Americans none the wiser about how they were deceived. The deception continues to the present…

The mail bombs were likely all about influencing the upcoming November 6 midterm elections, undemocratic Dem dark forces likely behind them, hoping the incident translates into winning back House and/or Senate control – wanting elements connected to or supporting Trump blamed for what happened…

Major media transfixing the nation on the mail bombs political stunt diverts attention from what’s most important to report.

Fake bombs hurt no one. Real ones massacre countless numbers of civilians and others in all US war theaters. The carnage continues daily, largely unreported, most Americans mindless about what’s going on. Their attention is diverted to bread and circuses, along with incidents like fake mail bombs, intended to scare and likely achieve a political aim, not cause harm.

That’s how manipulating the public mind works.”

Neil Kramer : Everything Under the Sun

http://neilkramer.com/roamcast-23-everything-under-the-sun/

“Most people in the world demonstrate that they prefer going with the sleepy program of mainstream hogwash than waking to the awesomeness of their own individual excellent life… They choose unknowing instead of knowing. They cannot be bothered to know anything about real politics, real society, real intellect, real sexuality, real freedom, real independence, real anything. How weird.

Still, there they are — driving around, doing things, going to church, going to work, listening to the news, eating things, buying things, saying things, and I look at them: are they really alive? Are they real? Are they our brothers and sisters? Should we look upon them without conceit and radiate our human compassion and understand that everyone is on a journey, everyone is on their own special journey, OR ARE THEY DEAD? Are they soulless? Are they non player characters (npc’s), artificial intelligences like in video games, there simply to fill out the landscape, following programs; no free will, no capacity to self determine?

When I was sixteen, I hated everyone.  And now, thirty years later, I still fucking hate everyone. The only difference is, now I know why. I understand the problem much better. I see how they damage and deprive themselves, and I hate that… My hate is a surge of care and sorrow, very human…

Our society is mentally ill, cracked, insane to all thinking feeling souls that move through it. What a peculiar training ground we are in. The land is good, the society is stupid. What a bizarre place.

How can we do something about that? By accepting the mystery of life, by moving deeper and deeper into the heart of reality, we begin to slowly dispel the madness. Our reason, our experience, the goodness of our presence brings order to everything it touches, in small ways and in massive ways. Our wisdom is in our footsteps. Sometimes that means tackling really difficult things, head on. We must never be scared to talk about anything — race, immigration, guns, violence, hate, education, families, sex, history, death. No political correctness, no censorship, simply to know what is true.” ~Neil Kramer

Neil Kramer : Shadow Mapping and The True Spiritual Path

http://www.higherjourneys.com/neil-kramer-shadow-mapping-and-the-true-spiritual-path/

Shadow mapping is the appreciation that truth brings pain… Frame difficulty as initiation, not misfortune.  Difficulty is soul wisdom set before you on purpose…
~Neil Kramer

Alexis Brooks writes: “Neil joins Higher Journeys Radio once again for part two of a completely riveting and soul stirring discussion about mapping the shadow, growing into a fully conscious human and understanding the painstaking work that comes before any meaningful benefit can honestly be realized.

There are many today who yearn to walk a spiritual path, and others who insist they are already on their way. But in that journey, where does pain and trauma come into play? According to Neil Kramer, without addressing the trauma, there can be no true spiritual work.

Neil Kramer : Spiritual Sovereignty in a Mad World

http://www.higherjourneys.com/neil-kramer-spiritual-sovereignty-in-a-mad-world/#

“The way to disinfect one’s self from Empire is to stop feeling that you have to choose from their menu of life options.” ~Neil Kramer

Alexis Brooks writes:  “The forces that craft and peddle control on this planet, though in existence for perhaps millennia, appear to be immutable – too powerful to sink or fail. But for some individuals on this planet, in what spiritual philosopher and teacher Neil Kramer calls “Empire” – the rules and rulers of this Global game just don’t exist.

Neil joined Higher Journeys to discuss his thoughts on what it takes to walk a sovereign path, even amid this mad world of containment and control. And in his signature blend of eloquence and honesty, his message is simple but profound.

In this episode we discuss the origins of societal containment, the acquiescence of the masses to Empire, the rise of Imperial socialism, the importance of finding equilibrium in life, the soul-less collective, education as a conduit for corruption, why we must design our own individualized menu for living, and the importance of being ready and willing to “engage with the mystery of life.”’

Neil Kramer : Why Empire Hates Guns

http://neilkramer.com/why-empire-hates-guns/

“The text of the Second Amendment is very clear: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

To erode the Second Amendment is to destabilize the entire Bill Of Rights. No Second Amendment, no First Amendment. No First Amendment, no freedom. That is precisely what empire wants: an uncodified constitution where freedom is arbitrarily granted as a privilege, not embodied as a natural right…

Empire knows that disarmament breeds dependency, both physically and psychologically. “Gun violence” and “gun control” are control words for disarmament. Gun violence does not exist. Guns cannot kill people. People kill people. Registration, gun-free zones, limiting magazine capacities, banning semi-auto sporting rifles – these all represent pathways to reduction and confiscation, should a nefarious government feel so inclined. None of these things prevent bad people from killing good people with guns. On the contrary, they advantage criminals and put innocent people at risk.

Empire hates citizens having the power to defend and protect themselves. It has worked very hard to condition the population into disarming itself by repeatedly suggesting that guns are inherently bad, have no place in the everyday life of civilized human beings, and are thus best restricted to use by specially trained and approved authorities. Regular people should not have them. The dream is for guns to be removed from circulation altogether and erased from the public consciousness, like in England, where violent crime rates are nonetheless somewhere between 6 to 10 times higher than the United States. Less shootings, but massively more criminality and violence, which is hard to defend against, physically and legally. No right to bear arms. No positive right to free speech. A wholly uncodified constitution. Dependency achieved.

When world society is principled, educated, noble, and greatly distinguished by its intellectual and emotional maturity, there will be little necessity for guns, other than for sporting and historical purposes. Those who believe we are anywhere close to that, should immediately check themselves into the nearest loony bin. You’ve been duped. The perception that we have already somehow achieved reasonable standards of cultural sophistication and international democracy, is a total fiction… It will take many generations before integrity, excellence, and personal responsibility are innate to society at large…

[I]f you are a good-hearted US citizen who has ever contemplated exercising your right to bear arms, now is a good time. Empower yourself, find wise tutelage, defend life and liberty, be an asset to your community and nation, and seriously piss off empire in the process.” ~Neil Kramer

The 2nd Amendment Really is an Essential Safeguard Against Crime and Tyranny

https://fee.org/articles/the-2nd-amendment-really-is-an-essential-safeguard-against-crime-and-tyranny/

“America has been a free and prosperous land precisely because of the fact that as a nation we have chosen to follow political and economic avenues different from those followed by other countries around the world.

As a people, we have swum against the tide of collectivism, socialism, and welfare statism to a greater degree, for the most part, than have our western European cousins. As a result, in many areas of life, we have remained freer, especially in our market activities, than they. The fact that other peoples in other lands chose to follow foolish paths leading to disastrous outcomes does not mean that we should follow in their footsteps.

America was born in revolt against the ideas of the “old world”: the politics of monarchy, the economics of mercantilism, and the culture of hereditary class and caste. America heralded the politics of representative, constitutional government, the economics of the free market, and the culture of individualism under equality before the law. It made America great.

If in more recent times there has been an “American disease,” it has been our all-too-willing receptivity to the European virus of political paternalism, welfare redistribution, economic regulation and planning, and the passive acceptance of government control over social affairs.

We need not and indeed should not fall victim to one more of the European ailments: the disarming of the people under the dangerous notion that the private citizenry cannot be trusted and should not be allowed to have the means of self-defense against potential private and political aggressors in society. Let us stand apart once more and not fall prey to the false idea that somehow our European cousins are more enlightened or advanced than we on the matters of gun ownership and control. They are not.”
