I’m seeing a lot of troubling references among a lot of the blogs and sites I read calling the “powers that be” or the elites being called the “Cathedral“. One thing that most of you don’t know is that the words you use to identify your enemies will be used against you.
Any further use of the word Cathedral by anyone trying to describe the powers that be or the elites is forbidden by me.
Why? Because cathedrals are beautiful considering that I’ve been in nearly a hundred during my travels and comparing what is against us and a cathedral is sorely lowering the accomplishments of the men that erected these edifices, some that date back more than a thousand years. It’s like calling a war-pig “curvy”, or a drone strike that kills a bunch of kids “future terrorists being taken out.” We have to take back the language and any reference to the worst evil that has ever been foisted on the human race has to be named and named for the evil it is.
So quit the shit already!
I know what you’re saying, so what do we call this piece of shit government and bureaucracy that we’re surrounded by today? I’ve been using this word for over three years and it perfectly encompasses everything that we are shouting out in the wilderness to try to get some one else to listen. The word?
Just the pronunciation seems sinister. Wait until you see my favorite definition from Merriam-Webster:
“the political state; especially: a totalitarian state having a vast bureaucracy.”
That pretty much sums it up doesn’t it?
So, guys quit using the pussy term “cathedral” and use the proper term, we’re not helping ourselves by using pretty prose and metaphors when this shit is deadly serious.
And it is deadly serious.
Reader Digger Nick sent me this list of links and executive orders in a comment on this post. I’ve known about these for a while but his list was so extensive that I thought his comment deserved its own article. If you don’t think the government sees us as nothing as cattle, this list will change your mind. Plus it’s another reason I’ve bought two AR15′s in the past month. Some of these go back more than twenty years which should tell you that’s what’s coming has been in the works for a long time. My comments about these are in bold:
This is the main reason some calibers of ammo are hard to get these days. No ammo, no functioning weapons. Glad I’ve been buying this stuff for almost two decades.
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.”
This is exactly why the TSA was implemented and now why it’s such a pain to fly these days.
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.”
I’d say they’ve already done that except in our little corner of the web.
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.”
Ever wonder why gas prices are so high?
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.”
I’ll burn my farm to the ground before I let them do this.
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.”
Slave camps anyone?
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.”
They’ve done this already also.
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.”
Mark of the beast anyone?
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.”
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.”
This one is so disturbing I might have to write an entire post about it. From what I’ve read between the lines, this authorizes the cattle cars and FEMA camps we’ve all heard about.
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.”
Got to have the railroads for the cattle cars yes?
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.”
Well, we’re already full blown into “economic or financial crisis“.
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.”
Even Orwell would have been horrified by this one.
“EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institutions in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months.”
There goes your money if you haven’t been rounded up yet. Not that congress would do a thing anyway.
“Executive Order Number 12656 appointed the National Security Council as the principal body that should consider emergency powers. This allows the government to increase domestic intelligence and surveillance of U.S. citizens and would restrict the freedom of movement within the United States and grant the government the right to isolate large groups of civilians. The National Guard could be federalized to seal all borders and take control of U.S. air space and all ports of entry.”
“Isolate large groups of civilians?” Who do you think they are referencing here? I know exactly.
“Welp, enjoy your FEMA camps.”
I would really like to thank Digger Nick for sending these links and the list to me. Go through them at your leisure, what you’ll find is disturbing at the least and horrifying at the worst.
So what are you going to do? I know what I am.
Just four days ago, I recommended this:
“And stay away from bitcoins. If you have any already, go to Silk Road and buy some drugs.”
Well, here’s what happened since I made that prediction. From the Wall Street Journal:
“WASHINGTON—U.S. officials dealt a blow to the fledgling digital currency called Bitcoin, freezing an account tied to the largest Bitcoin exchange just months after regulators warned such entities should follow traditional anti-money laundering rules. The Department of Homeland Security obtained a warrant Tuesday to seize an account tied to Mt. Gox, a Tokyo-based exchange that says it handles 80% of all Bitcoin trading. The warrant alleges the company and a subsidiary were conducting transactions “as part of an unlicensed money service business. U.S. authorities accused Mt. Gox and its U.S. subsidiary, Mutum Sigillum LLC, which held the account, of failing to register with the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCen. The account was held at the online-payments firm Dwolla, according to the warrant.”
You guys really need to start listening to me, I knew this was coming a month ago. And this is the kicker statement:
“The scrutiny comes after the Treasury Department ruled in March that firms issuing or exchanging online cash, including currencies not backed by a central bank, would be subject to the same money-laundering rules as traditional providers like Western Union” (emphasis mine).
The operative statement is “not backed by a central bank” See where we’re going here? Kiss Bitcoin goodbye and I hope you don’t have too many of them.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
If you haven’t gotten them already, don’t worry, I’ve been working my ass off all day trying to get everyone the files that I promised them. Shit, I didn’t know that there were so many of you out there that didn’t know how to find this info. Well, welcome to the society that we are trying to establish, it will be a better society than you have ever experienced. I didn’t expect the response I’ve gotten to this point, but I’ll be sure to answer all of you.
Just give me some time.
Frost sent a few of us who are known for our economic acumen a question via Twitter not too long ago asking the question, “Bitcoin vs. Gold, Cast your votes”. Well, I’ve been thinking about that question ever since he sent it to me and the only thing I can come up with and with very good reasons is…
One of the reasons that made my decision about gold was a comment by Doktor Bill in a previous post.
“My dad once asked me if he should buy gold because he was worried about societal unrest; i replied: imagine this scenario, SHTF-two men are walking down the street toward each other, one has a bag of gold coins, the other has a shotgun…. one man will be walking away with BOTH. Any questions?”
Now that’s not saying I don’t have some gold stashed, I do, with a lot more silver than gold because it’s easier to acquire and is easier to trade with. The only way I would go all in with gold if is the currency was backed by it which is never going to happen in our lifetimes.
Bitcoins are much more problematic, being digital, if the power goes off, so does your stash of bitcoins. for that reason alone, I’d stay away from them.
Most people can’t imagine the power going off for any longish length of time. But it’s a very real possibility during long periods of social unrest. Shit, Detroit can’t even keep the street lights on because of fiscal irresponsibility and thieves stealing every bit of copper wire they can get their hands on without electrocuting themselves. Oh wait, people are electrocuting themselves.
That’s the future we’re facing.
So what is my recommendation?
Guns and ammo, especially ammo are the new gold. A man who is armed can feed himself to a point. Plus, someone who can feed himself by growing his own food will have a huge advantage over the hordes especially if he can do it hidden. I’ve been studying aquaponics for the past few months and it seems just the thing. It can be done in a basement, a garage or anywhere else that can be hidden easily. A small solar panel can power the entire process and you not only get fresh vegetables but enough protein to keep yourself healthy.
That being said, there’s a huge amount of old wisdom out there that I’ve stumbled across by accident that you guys might be interested in. Send me your email addresses and I’ll send you what I’ve found. Hint: some of it dates back to 1881. Those guys survived without all the modern conveniences and so can we. These are large files so if I don’t get back with you immediately that’s why.
So, buy all the ammo you can find, even if you don’t have a gun that can shoot it, someone you know will and will trade for it. Look on the internet for aquaponics and learn how to hunt. Get yourself a small stash of gold and silver but don’t buy too much, that’s just a stopgap.
And stay away from bitcoins. If you have any already, go to Silk Road and buy some drugs.
H/T to bringthereality for the pic.
“It’s well past the point the elites could stop it. In ten to fifteen years, if things stay on track, these will be in a lot of homes. They’ll be the new iPad Better still, their performance will have been greatly increased and their cost reduced. They will have mass market appeal to just about everyone. Imagine the utility of printing a rake in the fall, turning that rake into a snow shovel in the winter, and a lawn chair in the summer. The more advanced models of 3D printers can already use metals and alloys as well as plastics. In about forty years these will be as ubiquitous as computers and will have totally reshaped the world.:
Peering into the future I see a series of tubes which pump the elemental goo into the homes of people with advanced 3D printing the same as water is pumped in. What would the need for a hardware store, Walmart or most other stores be? If you want to invest I’d say to invest in elemental goo companies. These printers are only going to get more complex, sophisticated, cheap, easy to use, and wide spread. Imagine if they became great enough to print out a fully functional computer or IPad What would be the point of mass industry again? Right, there would be no point. The industrial era is nearly over. Everything will be re-written because of it. Consider that the old model of school is built on pumping out factory workers. There’s no need anymore as there won’t be factories. How can our current model of economy stand? It can’t.
There’s another innovation I want to point out. The self-driving car. Taken to it’s logical conclusion, what would the auto-bot (that’s what I’m calling it leave me alone) be capable of? What if it could go to the store and get groceries without you? Or pick your kids up at school? Or fill itself up with gasoline, if gas is still used? It could run as a taxi for you while you’re at work. It could drop you off at work, your wife, your kids, and then go and run errands all day. The autobots out now are already superior to humans. A human driving a car will probably be limited to a race track or private road.”
I think his intuition is correct. Barring a complete breakdown of society and infrastructure, I think we’ll see this in our lifetimes if not in our kid’s lifetimes.
So, what to do when people no longer have to work to produce these things? I have some ideas about that and will be writing about them soon.
It might not be what you think.
I’m definitely going to have to throw an apology out here to my readers because I’ve been lazy as hell about checking my email that’s linked to this site. I didn’t think anyone would email me when I first started this little venture up and so I didn’t figure I’d get many. Well, I checked it today for the first time in a month and holy crap, I’ve got a lot of you guys to answer. So no post for tomorrow and I’m going to answer all of you. Each and every one.
Thanks for mailing me and I promise I won’t let it get to this point again.
(Bill’s note: I wrote this article exactly one year ago for another web publication but since this site was new at the time, it didn’t get much traffic here. Got shitpiles on the other site however. After a re-reading, it seems just as pertinent today as it was one year ago. Enjoy.)
“In life, particularly in public life, psychology is more powerful than logic.” Ludwig Quidde
Psychology as a field of study originated in the late 1800’s in Germany. Originally its goals were understanding human behavior and mental illness. It didn’t take long however as its precepts were being formulated that certain corporations and governments realized that it is a powerful tool for maximizing sales and control of populations. They also realized that it is a powerful tool for social engineering, by using psychological techniques a population can be steered in the directions they wished. These tools are so pervasive in modern life that I doubt there’s not one thing that you’ve been exposed to today that doesn’t have some remnant of a psychological tool imbedded in it.
“I think the future of psychotherapy and psychology is in the school system. We need to teach every child how to rarely seriously disturb him or herself and how to overcome disturbance when it occurs.” Albert Ellis
When I read that quote, I was enraged. “Seriously disturb himself”? Shit, that’s all part of growing up, being disturbed and learning how to deal with it on your own. The problem is that using psychology on people has been extremely successful and it’s been such an unqualified success that exposure to it starts at a very young age. From the design of kid’s toys, to what’s on TV on to the design of school systems, psychological tools are employed to ensure that the adult that results conforms to what the elites wish. Which is an entire population that is docile, materialistic, hedonistic and unable to think critically.
This has caused incredible damage not just to people but also families, institutions and social structures. It’s caused the population to be unable to set norms, has caused a steep decline in the moral character of this nation, has made more and more people dependent on others for their needs, has made the majority of the population support immoral “Wars” on terror and drugs. In short, the use of psychological tools on the population has induced a kind of blanket social schizophrenia where logic goes out the window and whatever behavior you wish to exhibit is excused and many times encouraged.
And the majority of the population has no idea that they are being mentally manipulated for these ends.
“Idleness is the parent of psychology.” Friedrich Nietzsche
It’s no coincidence that the rise of psychiatry happened at the same time of the ramping up of the industrial revolution. Before the industrial revolution, life in this country was much more agrarian and if you were working the family farm, there wasn’t much idle time and what there was you spent with family. Generally several generations of them. You learned lessons from them, learned your moral code from them and learned how to comport yourself from them. With the industrial revolution, all this changed, farming became more and more mechanized and intergenerational families were broken up as more and more people moved to cities to work in factories. More people found themselves with idle time on their hands and idleness isn’t good for a human, it causes all kinds of mental problems. Enter psychiatry. Once psychiatry was ensconced in the culture, the elites were free to use it as a mean to their ends.
Don’t think you’re immune to it; every individual is susceptible to it in one shape or form. Even though each person’s perspective is unique there are huge societal pressures to conform in one way or another. There used to be societal boundaries that most didn’t cross but when there are no boundaries and all kinds of aberrant behaviors are tolerated then you get the crumbling, sick society you see today. It’s all because psychological tools have been used on the population to brainwash them into accepting what was at one time unacceptable. Present society’s inability to set norms is one of the crowning achievements of the elites using these tools to meet their goals.
Some are starting to wake up however and the internet is the reason. Only on the internet is where what the elites have been doing for over a century (and maybe a millennia) is being exposed. I call it the Internet Reformation (first coined by the Daily Bell) and it’s having an effect that can be compared to what happened after the Gutenberg press was introduced. The elites don’t have a monopoly on information anymore and they are panicking. Why do you think all these new draconian laws and executive orders are being implemented? What they used to be able to do through psychiatric manipulation isn’t working so well anymore and a growing percentage of the population is becoming increasingly angry. Look at what’s happening in Europe and the Middle East, it’s never reported on the MSM but with a click of your mouse, you can watch Greece burn and the Syrian government killing protestors. And that scares them. Thus the big push to regulate the internet, it was a mistake they never saw coming.
I don’t know precisely what’s going to happen in the future, just educated guesses, but times they are a changing.
