Breaking Down The Pyramids That Govern – Part 1 of 2

 

“Everybody who has ever worked for a corporation knows that corporations conspire all the time. Politicians conspire all the time, pot-dealers conspire not to get caught by the narcs, the world is full of conspiracies. Conspiracy is natural primate behavior. A tribe is a conspiracy to survive. Conspiracy is just another name for coalition.” – Robert Anton Wilson

Structures are nature’s way of balancing opposing forces.

For thousands of years, pyramid hierarchies have been used to balance the forces of self-interest and group interest. Though these have been channeled through many different strategies and ideologies, the hierarchy structure remains one of humanity’s most consistent social tools.

This has great implications for our past, present and future.

Pyramids Are Natural

•Especially in survival situations, groups naturally appoint leaders, often without even …

Meet the Architects Of Your Matrix

 

“There are invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions. It is not generally realized to what extent the words and actions of our most influential public men are dictated by shrewd persons operating behind the scenes.” Edward Bernays, Propaganda

“If everyone believes something, it’s probably wrong. Most of the opinions held by the public are contrived. Airtime costs money. It wouldn’t be on TV if someone wasn’t paying for it to be there.” Tim O’Shea, The Doors of Perception

Towards the end of the second Matrix film, Neo reaches The Source and meets the Architect. Here, he finally discovers the truth about the world he has been living in. In a pivotal exchange, these two fictional characters express a very real conflict through their opposing points of view. …

Alternative Media – Piranhas Loose In the Shark Tank

 

“We are in an information war. And we are losing that war. I’ll be quite blunt in my assessment.” Hillary Clinton, testifying before Congress March 2011

You don’t even have to take Hillary’s word for it. The YouTube videos posted for CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News combined are out-viewed by RT alone at more than a 100:1 rate.

1 Million CNN/Fox/MSNBC views = 100 million RT views

Regardless of how you feel about their content, you should take note: People’s viewing habits are changing. Their impact on public opinion is profound, and will continue to grow.

The mainstream media is slowly dying, and they know it. CNN has lost 60% of their audience in the last 3 years. People are tired of having their news fed to them …

Psychopaths – Triumph Of The Ruthless

 

“There were a billion lights out there on the horizon and I knew that all of them put together weren’t enough to light the darkness in the hearts of some men.” ― Michael Connelly, The Scarecrow

“Never has there been born a genius, without a touch of madness.” – Aristotle

Psychopath: This word conjures up images of serial killers for most people. Those are valid examples, but don’t be fooled. There’s much more to the story than that.

Trying to know the world without understanding their influence, would be like trying to explain a beehive without ever seeing the queen. She’s at the center of events. Her influence is powerful and wide. Yet, she’s rarely seen. You could watch the outside of the hive for a long time, and never …

The Architecture Of History

 

Our lives are shaped by forces larger than ourselves. There is no escaping this.

To understand our world and our place in it, we must understand these forces.

Civilizations follow an evolutionary process all their own. Just as school of fish reacts to the presence of a shark, so do human civilizations react to forces and events larger than any member of society.

Carroll Quigley gives a powerful account of these in Evolution of Civilizations. Not many in history, save the rulers of the day, have ever had such perspective. He deserves much credit for the following, though he is not my only source.

Societies are comprised of major social structures that exist in the areas of: Politics, Economics, Religious, Military, Technology, Education, Entertainment, Culture and Communications.
