Blindfold

"In the ancient world individuals have sold themselves as slaves, in order to eat. So in society. Here is a witch-doctor who can save us from the sorcerers -- a war-lord who can save us from the barbarians -- a Church that can save us from Hell. Give them what they ask, give ourselves to them bound and blindfold, if only they will!  Perhaps the terrible bargain will be made again. We cannot blame men for making it. We can hardly wish them not to. Yet we can hardly bear that they should."
--C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), British novelist

Wilderness

"I am not a Labor Leader; I do not want you to follow me or anyone else; if you are looking for a Moses to lead you out of this capitalist wilderness, you will stay right where you are. I would not lead you into the promised land if I could, because if I led you in, some one else would lead you out. You must use your heads as well as your hands, and get yourself out of your present condition; as it is now the capitalists use your heads and your hands."
--Eugene Eebs, "Life of Eugene V. Debs" by Stephen Marion Reynolds, in Debs : His Life, Writings and Speeches (1908) edited by Bruce Rogers and Stephen Marion Reynolds, p. 71

Obsolesence

"Perhaps it is this specter that most haunts working men and women: the planned obsolescence of people that is of a piece with the planned obsolescence of the things they make. Or sell."

Cents

Airport

Breath

What is the name of the test that can be given to determine if a child can safely receive a vaccine?
It's called a breath test. You hold a mirror in front of the child and if condensation appears, they are still alive and cannot "safely" receive a vaccine.
--Author Unknown

Focus On The Real

CNN, Fox, and the rest of the government mouthpieces, stirring up false fear over the government-created ISIS and the infamous bogus video.

Let's focus on things that genuinely pose a significant threat to the people and future of this nation, indeed this planet.

So when you encounter corporate claptrap, whenever they're going on about ISIS, substitute "vaccine pushers" for "ISIS".

Because today, untold thousands of American children will be injected with poison.  Some will get sick, some will have life-changing harm, some will die with a bogus "diagnosis" like "Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)".

Get a copy of "Medical Apartheid" by Harriet Washington.  The role of "Doctors" under the Third Reich has long been well documented, and Mengle was but one of many who eagerly joined in.

Those "Doctors" smiled, those "Doctors" likewise intimidated and scared their victims.

Don't give in to fear or intimidation, don't be distracted.  Focus on the real.  Because innocent children shouldn't be maimed and killed to line the pockets of the pharmaceutical drug cartel and those who profit in the "news media", to weaken the population of the US and other countries to make way for one-world government, or to further the "Depopulation Agenda".

Vacuum

System II

"The few who can understand the system (check money and credits) will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests"
--Letter dated June 25, 1863 to the banking firm of Ikleheimer, Morton and Vandergould from the Rothchilds’s firm, located in London

Continual

"Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare."
--James Madison, Political Observations, Apr. 20, 1795 in: Letters and Other Writings of James Madison, vol. 4, p. 491 (1865)

Institutions II

"For there is another kind of violence, slower but just as deadly destructive as the shot or the bomb in the night. This is the violence of institutions; indifference and inaction and slow decay. This is the violence that afflicts the poor, that poisons relations between men because their skin has different colors. This is the slow destruction of a child by hunger, and schools without books and homes without heat in the winter. This is the breaking of a man's spirit by denying him the chance to stand as a father and as a man among other men. And this too afflicts us all."
--Robert F. Kennedy, April 5, 1968

Debt

Students who acquire large debts putting themselves through school are unlikely to think about changing society.  When you trap people in a system of debt . they can’t afford the time to think.” Tuition fee increases are a "disciplinary technique," and, by the time students graduate, they are not only loaded with debt, but have also internalized the "disciplinarian culture." This makes them efficient components of the consumer economy.

Mania

"The mania for giving the Government power to meddle with the private affairs of cities or citizens is likely to cause endless trouble, through the rivaly of schools and creeds that are anxious to obtain official recognition, and there is great danger that our people will lose our independence of thought and action which is the cause of much of our greatness, and sink into the helplessness of the Frenchman or German who expects his government to feed him when hungry, clothe him when naked, to prescribe when his child may be born and when he may die, and, in time, to regulate every act of humanity from the cradle to the tomb, including the manner in which he may seek future admission to paradise."
--Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835-1910)

Robin Williams, RIP

July 21, 1951 - August 11, 2014


Carpe. Hear it? (whispering) Carpe. Carpe Diem. Seize the day boys. Make your lives extraordinary.
--John Keating in Dead Poets Society

Ah, yes, divorce... from the Latin word meaning to rip out a man's genitals through his wallet.

Our job is improving the quality of life not just delaying death.
--Patch Adams in Patch Adams

I believe Ronald Reagan can make this country what it once was... a large Arctic region covered with ice.

I wonder what chairs think about all day: "Oh, here comes another asshole."

See, the problem is that God gives men a brain and a penis, and only enough blood to run one at a time.

I went to rehab [for alcoholism] in wine country, just to keep my options open.

Some are born great.  Some achieve greatness.  Some get it as a graduation gift.

When I was growing up they used to say, "Robin, drugs can kill you." Now that I'm 58 my doctor's telling me, "Robin, you need drugs to live." I realize now that my doctor is also my dealer...

Death is nature’s way of saying, ‘your table is ready.’

Ingrained

"To live his life in his own way, to call his house his castle, to enjoy the fruits of his own labour, to educate his children as his conscience directs, to save for their prosperity after his death --- these are wishes deeply ingrained in civilised man. Their realization is almost as necessary to our virtues as to our happiness. From their total frustration disastrous results both moral and psychological might follow."

Vulgar

"[T]he child should be taught to consider his instructor... superior to the parent in point of authority.... The vulgar impression that parents have a legal right to dictate to teachers is entirely erroneous.... Parents have no remedy as against the teacher."

Stilted

"Only stilted pedants can conceive the idea that there are absolute norms to tell what is beautiful and what is not. They try to derive from the works of the past a code of rules with which, as they fancy, the writers and artists of the future should comply. But the genius does not cooperate with the pundit."
--Ludwig von Mises, in "Theory and History"

Shadows II

Administrated

"Well, if one really wishes to know how justice is administered in a country, one does not question the policemen, the lawyers, the judges, or the protected members of the middle class. One goes to the unprotected - those, precisely, who need the law's protection most! - and listens to their testimony. Ask any Mexican, any Puerto Rican, any black man, any poor person - ask the wretched how they fare in the halls of justice, and then you will know, not whether or not the country is just, but whether or not it has any love for justice, or any concept of it. It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have."
