Second Coming

I believe the era in which we now live is the equivalent of the shift from the Celestial calendar to the Gregorian. BC to AD. The Year Zero. And, as before, with it will come a new life-denying and mind-shackling religion, in which the individual is the new devil.

I am the sum of my life so far. And my life is examining life. It is what I do.

I am not perfect and my knowledge is always incomplete. I know more than most, less than many, but I speak the truth of the world as I observe it.

I share information that I acquired during many years of deep and dedicated study of the world around me. My words are inspired by ideas passed on to me from others of much more elevated intelligence and dedication, brilliant journalists, philosophers, and scientists who have left their mark in the permanent archives of human thought.

Many of these documents are available only because they were preserved by those who recognized their crucial nature, from the book burnings of the past, from past iterations of what we are experiencing right now.

The oldest messages to the most current, in stone, on skin, papyrus, paper, and upon film and tape, are these days preserved in the form of electrons, hanging loose in the air, imperceivable to anyone without the proper device, and the means to purchase it. Herein lies the death of our truth.

Via extant video and printed archives, I have watched the work burn, as in the streets of Berlin or the Library of Alexandria, where the prevailing authorities ordered enormous pyres of flames, into which all the knowledge of humanity was to be cast, wiping out the previous history of Man, and obliterating whole swaths of our conscious memory of who we are.

The pyres now take the form of the removal and blocking of video and audio files, supposedly because they contain "dangerous information".

Of course all of us know intuitively if not overtly that the "danger" is not to us, but to the "authorities", the elite class. This has happened before, and it is happening again -- now -- as rampant censorship and propaganda blanket the entire planet this time around.

But the actual and acute tragedy is this:

All we have to do is resist it. That's all. Nothing more. No fighting, no demonstrating, no rioting or wars. Just don't do what you know in your heart is wrong, not just because some authority deems it so. Have the courage to stand up for yourself, though the bought-and-paid-for minds will condemn you for your "selfishness".

We resist tyranny by not participating. Simply. Just exercise your human rights. That is all. Get off your knees and stop begging for your rights from self-proclaimed authorities who spin the yarn of double talk into downright lies. For their aim in doing this is to shift your thinking from self-expression to collective order where a few can easily control the many.

"What you are doing is selfish, because it offends or endangers me. No, I do not have to do anything to protect myself: it is you who must protect me. It is you who must cover your face. It is you who must police your words, remain silent so that nothing you say offends me in any way. It is you who must alter your life in order to preserve me, because either I can not, will not, or by order of authority, must not act to preserve myself. You no longer exist. My comfort is your sole purpose. And, no, I do not have to know why, and neither do you."

Do you recognize this prevailing attitude? Do you notice who promotes it? If not, go find out. Use your mind or you will lose your mind, not necessarily to insanity (though that is entirely possible), but to artificial collective religious dogma, from which we have worked for millennia to protect ourselves, only to throw it out with the bathwater used to cleanse the world of rogues and deviants.

The individual human mind is to be obliterated so that the collective mind can once again slouch towards Bethlehem to be born.
