I do sometimes wonder if as well as a vehicle for my pleasure it is also a vehicle for my discovery, as the utter madness I sometimes come across drives me to get to the bottom of it. I would also dearly love to cure it, but as an individual with only the internet and a small group of people to share with am hardly personally qualified to do more than plant a few seeds and hope they in turn multiply. I've basically never seen such a climate of organised control over the general public in my life. We've had it in localised areas throughout history with a single regime like the Soviet Union and China, but never before across what would like to call the free world.
Think about it, democratic countries worldwide are moving more and more away from national government and more to international policies, often from a perceived problem which needs a universal solution to solve, ie we all must join together or nothing can be fixed. This goes from the world credit crash to global warming, and simply allows this excuse every single time for a tier of government above the national, from the EU to the UN, losing the Soviet Union and simply swapping the principle for others elsewhere, despite its abject failure and lack of freedom and human rights.
Well I expose and call them on it. While the majority happily work together (the internet now publishes many of the minutes and publications, so can see the cogs behind the watchface) a few like Ron Paul and Nigel Farage appear to stand outside the system trying to change it from within. But trust and group dynamics means it takes a shift of at least 10% or more away from the crowd before anything can change. Currently I am aware of no politician in a position of power (one name quoted is in opposition while the other is a fringe European member with no powers anyhow regardless) who campaigns against the status quo- quantitative easing, bank bailouts (besides Iceland, who have bounced back simply by not paying their debts), carbon taxes, low interest rates, high levels of national debt and creeping travel restrictions.
These freedoms and improvements have grown over centuries of breaking the power of the factory owners during the industrial revolution (which, as Marx said, swung so far the other way it needed a return to the centre), improving technology, faster travel and the general ability to live one's life free of excessive government interference. This is all going backwards now, with what is the United Nations Agenda 21, a blueprint for sustainability, actually described thus: "Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control." - Professor Maurice King
Which pretty well sums it up. Reduce the population and effects of technology and development on the planet in any possible way. If anyone wants to learn more check ICLEI online which is how they apply the rules locally through council regulations. This again is not a national plan, but international, applying equally to every single UN country. No one even knows about it, let alone had a chance to vote on it, and it is now one of the general policies under which many others are made. Of course until more people learn this and read it (it's all on Wikipedia), they won't even know it's been running in the background, like a Trojan Horse program, since 1996. It is dressed up to appear to be about caring for the environment, but the quote (and many more similar) I added is the true nature and if you want to see then look at the fruits of the plan rather than the words.
This is not the only reason for it, but the Club of the Isles, Club of Rome, Bilderberg Group etc etc, all real entities and some happy to publish their material, are not a national group but behind national policies worldwide. Why bother trying to change a country or two when you can get it to the UN and send it showering down like a manure spreader? Anyway, I do my bit sharing it and leave it to others to make their own minds up.
