With the new website up, I reflected on why we keep chipping away. Why stay committed?
For a very long time humanity has been ruled by a small war-mongering elite, that have used violence and deception, including a debt based money system to controlling governments. They have also been using earth’s precious resources for created wars — and they seem to have no regard for the planet, or its people. Please correct me if I’m way off the mark.
So when will this madness end?
Mary Maxwell wrote an important article about two weeks ago. In “Call To Action” she concludes:
“The hour grows late. We are making a huge mistake in ‘tolerating’ the cabal, the evil ones, or whatever you want to call them.”
Well if you read alternative sites, many declare that more and more people are waking up — and that the world is undergoing a “Paradigm Shift” (towards a better world). For several years I had thought so, but sadly, I am not so sure. I do think a percentage of the population has had a huge awakening — especially in the last decade (including myself) — through accessing information through the internet.
But, for another percentage, it has had a devastating dumbing down effect. This is partly due to media control, and now how Facebook and Google algorithms serve up more of the same information.
Even though 3,000 architects and engineers, and many more in other specialist professions say that the three WTC buildings were demolished with explosives — nothing comes of it. The apathy of the main populace is almost beyond belief. Even if some have come to understanding the deception — the majority of people are just NOT interested. Maybe society is not ready. A Gumshoe reader recently wrote to me saying this (9-11) truth would “…decimate the universal belief system… They [people] would lose all sense of direction, have no idea what is real, and be emotionally distraught for a very long time,” and this could possibly destabilize the West.
But Gumshoe reader, David, emailed me the other day with this old Russian proverb:
“It is better to be slapped with the truth than be kissed with a lie”
So today I will write about when do we reach that “Tipping Point” – when we say “enough is enough”, and rid ourselves of the liars, war-mongers, and shadow groups that rule us so badly. What will it take for the tide of humanity to change?
Collapse and Extinction vs Thrive
We humans are a creative bunch – and the desire to destroy is also a creative urge. But we should be warned, “…we’ve been residents here for the blink of an eye. If we’re gone tomorrow, the earth will not miss us.” (Michael Crichton). So maybe it is naive to believe that humans could exist in harmony. But, hell, it’s worth a try.
Lawyer and American investigative journalist, Alfred Henry Lewis wrote in a March 1906. “There are only nine meals between mankind and anarchy.” This may be BS, but you get the idea. So would we “take action” if we realised that we are on the verge of extinction, from say a nuclear war?
In Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed (2005), Jared Diamond writes about how farmland in Rwanda had been divided into smaller and smaller parcels of land — making it impossible for most to survive in subsistence farming. This became a major factor in the genocide there. He quotes a Tutsi teacher, demonstrating that it was beyond tribal conflict:
“The people whose children had to walk barefoot to school killed the people who could buy shoes for theirs.”
In Collapse, Diamond describes the demise of Easter Island as one of “ecocide.” We have destroyed vast tracts of natural habitat, and we are fiddling with nature. And we are constantly warned about climate change – but maybe it is our leaders, bankers and elite groups that pose the greatest danger.
Competition For Change
People realise that there is abundance on earth (disproportionally shared) – and several factors are assisting humanity towards positive change. These include the Internet, the rise of independent media, and the shift towards renewable and sustainable energies and systems. There is also a growing decentralization movement where power is given back to the people — but this is in very tough competition with global corporations that are gobbling up national and smaller competitors. The elite understand these movements, and are orchestrating some of these to fail.
So how do the powerful, retain power? Obviously those in charge of the money printing presses have a lot of power, but I believe holding “secrets” is at the essence of maintaining it.
Secrets and Unaccountable Organisations
By allowing secret organisations, like the CIA, MI6, ASIO etc., to exist as they presently do, how can anything really change? These organisations hold un-elected power, and even though they are funded by the tax payer, we are not allowed to know what they are up to. Elected leaders are disposable — and are discarded if they challenge this status quo.
Humanity has been deprived of the real information to collectively make the right choices over the future. If information were more open source, would many of the wars have eventuated? The Intel agencies are in on it. Take the recent war in Iraq. People were completely blindsided by lies to go to war. What a scam.
So what is the point at which this will change?
We are familiar with this term being used to changing climates — but today, I am writing about the point at which society collectively decides a change in the present banking and global cabal structure is a necessity.
After decades of cover-ups, a tipping point in Australia was reached over sexual abuse, and Prime Minister Julia Gillard submitted to the social outrage – ordering a royal commission to investigate. However, with regard to the murders of 3,000 people in New York on 9/11, she said to question the official narrative was “stupid and wrong.”
So what will it take for governments to say — “Let us investigate, prosecute and punish those people that really orchestrated the attack”?
Tipping points have been studied in natural systems. For example, studies done on fires spreading through forests found that once a forest reach a 59% density – the chances of a firestorm spreading went from almost zero to an almost certainty. Does this apply to us? Probably not.
The 10 Percent Theory
“Once 10% of a population is committed to an idea, it’s inevitable that it will eventually become the prevailing opinion of the entire group. The key is to remain committed.
“when the committed fraction grows beyond a critical value pc=10%, there is a dramatic decrease in the time Tc taken for the entire population to adopt the committed opinion…”
I assume that these “ideas” did NOT have (government) resistance. My guess is that if the elite are doing everything to stop competing ideas evolving, it will be much greater than 10%. I hope we don’t have to wait until it reaches the 59% firestorm levels.
Society, it seems, is not ready to be slapped just yet. I was reading the comments to the question raised in this article “Has There Been A Shift In The Collective Consciousness Of Humanity?” I found Dr Lesley Prince’s comment interesting:
“…The shift is palpable, but it is inchoate… But it is very unclear, and people are generally lost, waiting for someone or something to clarify it all.”
Well, we remain committed, and we will give it our best to provide some clarity on this news site — both in the articles and its comments.
