The Devil (XV) is a trump, or archetypal card, from the Major Arcana of the Tarot. Note in the foreground the Devil's captive couple, their nakedness fashionably accessorized with satanic horms, tails and neckchains that can be removed at any time.
...[W]hen a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security."
-- Thomas Jefferson, The American Declaration of Independence from the Crown Corporations of the British Empire, enacted on July 4, 1776
It is now also especially important to remember that those founders were declaring American independence from Crown corporations of the British Empire that had begun to control the delegated governments of its American colonies with the tacit support of the British government.
The American founders in so doing gave eloquent voice to the aspirations to freedom of the people of the world, and a model from which the democratic constitutions of many nations have been created, as political and legal contracts of the inherently sovereign people with their delegated national governments.
We who are alive today exist in a different and even more perilous time, in which the delegated national and supranational governments of most of the so-called democratic nations of the planet are controlled by the transnational corporations of a secretive, sinister global empire, of which the wisest of our leaders throughout history had many times warned us unheeded, with the regretful result that these transnational corporations now control most of the governments of the world.
This sinister, secretive global empire is operated by an international bank-based corporate crime syndicate that now controls, through advanced technologies of globalized centralization, all of the major sociopolitical, financial, energy, military, religious, cultural and information systems of this planet.
This sinister, secretive syndicate has recently perpetrated several heinous crimes against nature and humanity that should be evident to all:
1) An orchestrated worldwide economic depression, with accompanying massive global corporate bailouts, contrasting with massive government service cuts directed at the people of the world;
2)The fraudulent tyrannous,wasteful pandemic emergency ostensibly declared for the H1N1 influenza through the corporate-controlled United Nations World Health Organization. The WHO was assisted in implementing this dangerous fraud by its many allied national governments for the profit of the global pharmaceutical cartel, with plans for forced bioweaponized vaccinations and medical martial law included within it to implement worldwide takeover by the sinister syndicate for which the WHO is a front. This has wasted huge amounts of public resources in a time of such significant scarcity as this sinister syndicate had already engineered;
3) And now the catastrophic false flag oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that has allowed the entire US Gulf Coast and its population to be clandestinely poisoned with megatoxic oil dispersants under the cover of de facto corporate-controlled martial law, while possibly endangering all life on earth.
For all of these manufactured emergencies, it is now well known that those responsible both causatively and administratively have been offereda number of workable solutions which they have deliberately chosen to ignore, thereby showing evidence of the abovementioned criminal intent of ecocide and genocide, and making these crimes against humanity and nature that much more heinous.
There have been over the past several centuries --especially during the unprecedentedly violent twentieth century -- many more atrocities perpetrated by this same secretive, sinister syndicate and its agencies, but none so universally experienced and recognized as these presently pressing events affecting all of us on earth.
All of these heinous crimes were aided and abetted by the delegated governments of the United States, the United Nations and most of the corporate-controlled national and supranational governments of the world and their corporate-controlled communications media, without due consultation with, and without the informed consent of the world's people.
Most of our delegated national and supranational governments have thereby betrayed the inherently sovereign people of the world, acting repeatedly against their best interests in, as Thomas Jefferson has so aptly stated, "a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object":... to reduce(us) under absolute despotism."
