Machines That Speak

Illustration by David Dees

The Selection-Season has begun: This used to be thought of as the ‘Election season’ but with the advent of technology and the never-ending campaigns for office 24-7, 365 days of every year this has become the season of the Machines—because only the machines are allowed to declare the winners and the losers. ‘People’ and their opinions are irrelevant, no matter how much they vote or call or write to those same people that both imprison us all, and yet still get reelected each and every four years!

There has never been a clearer sell-out of the public than this year’s so-called election process. We have only just begun but beginning with Iowa, the election frauds are running wild while the deaf, dumb and blind public continues to whoop & holler about every minute point of all the political stuff that will never see the light of day; because the Republic will be officially dead in just 38 more days.

What does that mean? It means that your life as you are currently trying to live it will no longer exist. You might survive for awhile, but sooner or later you TOO will be SUSPECTED of something, and that will end whatever you thought your life was all about! Too bad more of you were not just a little suspicious of what this government has been doing since the presidential selection was stolen by Bush Jr. on 12-12-2000!

Robinson Jeffers foretold it all back in 1941


“Be Angry at the Sun

That public men publish falsehoods
Is nothing new. That America must accept
Like the historical republics corruption and empire
Has been known for years.

Be angry at the sun for setting
If these things anger you. Watch the wheel slope
And turn,

They are all bound on the wheel, these people,
Those warriors,
This republic, Europe, Asia

Observe them gesticulating,
Observe them going down, The gang serves lies,
The passionate man
Plays his part: the cold passion for truth
Hunts in no pack

Let boys want pleasure, and men
Struggle for power, and women perhaps for fame,
And the servile to serve a Leader, and the dupes to be duped.
Yours is not theirs.” (1)

Our only real task today is in Part Three of the Journey:

“Give Your Heart to the Hawks”

“…..I am holding the made world by the throat
Until I can make it change and open the knot that past time
tied. To undo past time, and mend
The finished world.”

Excerpt from Give Your Heart to the Hawks by Robinson Jeffers 1933

When the entire world goes nuts, we still have that very personal responsibility to ourselves to stay and fight what we can, to ‘open that knot that past time tied—to undo past time and begin to mend the Finished World’ – despite all the damage that has already been done to her… and there is also this:

“The underpinnings that fallaciously attempt to justify despotic regimes rely upon the perverted practice of controlling the public mind-set in weak societies. The indisputable evidence that civilization is regressing at lightning speed is all us. Governments are becoming irrelevant with the passage of illegitimate authority consolidating into the hands of oligarchic cabals and global tyrants. An objective study of the voluntary abandonment of individual sovereignty is worthy of an entire scholarly discipline. However, before confused citizens seek psychoanalysis on a couch of technocrat design, the basic principles of a classical education should be applied.

Philosophical inquiry is meant to seek an understanding of the truth. Truth, when known, vindicates the dignity of the person and the value intrinsic within the human race. Therefore, it comes as a great letdown to face up to the horrendous savageness that society accepts as typical behavior. The Psychological techniques used to train people to accept tyranny as the normal course of conduct is practiced by every despotic regime.

Jon Roland in an essay, Principles of Tyranny provides a valuable insight.

“Perhaps one of the things that most distinguishes those with a fascist mentality from most other persons is how they react in situations that engender feelings of insecurity and inadequacy. The emergence of tyranny therefore begins with challenges to a group, develops into general feelings of insecurity and inadequacy, and falls into a pattern in which some individuals assume the role of “father” to the others, who willingly submit to becoming dependent “children” of such persons if only they are reassured that a more favorable outcome will be realized. This pattern of co-dependency is pathological, and generally results in decision-making of poor quality that makes the situation even worse, but, because the pattern is pathological, instead of abandoning it, the co-dependents repeat their inappropriate behavior to produce a vicious spiral that, if not interrupted, can lead to total breakdown of the group and the worst of the available outcomes.” (2)

Our little global-world has only been here for an eyeblink in the whole grand scheme of things. The people who actually developed the thoughts conveyed in the short video were here for over 5,000 years; and apparently they learned what we have yet to even remotely understand. (3)

Just 38 days left and counting!
