Our Mania for Hope Is a Curse

  Demonstrators protesting the influence of big corporations march on Wall Street amid heavy police presence in 2011. (AP / John Minchillo)

The naive belief that history is linear, that moral progress accompanies technical progress, is a form of collective self-delusion. It cripples our capacity for radical action and lulls us into a false sense of security. Those who cling to the myth of human progress, who believe that the world inevitably moves toward a higher material and moral state, are held captive by power. Only those who accept the very real possibility of dystopia, of the rise of a ruthless corporate totalitarianism, buttressed by the most terrifying security and surveillance apparatus in human history, are likely to carry out the self-sacrifice necessary for revolt.

The yearning for positivism that pervades our corporate culture ignores human nature and human history. But to challenge it, to state the obvious fact that things are getting worse, and may soon get much worse, is to be tossed out of the circle of magical thinking that defines American and much of Western culture. The left is as infected with this mania for hope as the right. It is a mania that obscures reality even as global capitalism disintegrates and the ecosystem unravels, potentially dooming us all.

The 19th century theorist Louis-Auguste Blanqui, unlike nearly all of his contemporaries, dismissed the belief, central to Karl Marx, that human history is a linear progression toward equality and greater morality. He warned that this absurd positivism is the lie perpetrated by oppressors: “All atrocities of the victor, the long series of his attacks are coldly transformed into constant, inevitable evolution, like that of nature. … But the sequence of human things is not inevitable like that of the universe. It can be changed at any moment.” He foresaw that scientific and technological advancement, rather than being a harbinger of progress, could be “a terrible weapon in the hands of Capital against Work and Thought.” And in a day when few others did so, he decried the despoiling of the natural world. “The axe fells, nobody replants. There is no concern for the future’s ill health.”

Lab tests: McDonald’s ‘Devastates’ Gut Health in 10 Days

Lab tests: McDonald’s ‘Devastates’ Gut Health in 10 Days

new Friday 15th May 2015 at 09:30 By David Icke

‘We all know food at McDonald’s is virtually unfit for human consumption, but disturbing new lab results have reportedly demonstrated the true extent of the damage you are doing to your body when you eat fast food. Specifically, we’re talking about the ‘devastation’ of your gut health — the attack on the most important part of your biological immune response.

In a report that really brings into focus just what’s going on when we throw a bunch of chemical additives together with some ‘meat-like substances,’ a professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London used one unlucky college student (who also happened to be his son) to see what truly goes on in our stomachs when we chow down on some quarter pounders.

It goes way beyond just super sizing your pant size and clogging up your arteries.’

McDonald’s apologises after customer told he wouldn’t be served because he looked ‘homeless’

new Friday 15th May 2015 at 09:31 By David Icke

‘McDonald’s bosses have apologised after staff told a customer he wouldn’t be served because he ‘looked homeless’.

Landscape gardener Daniel Jackson, 27, was wearing his outdoor work gear when he was told he initially denied service.

He claims the manager of the fast food outlet on Oxford Road in Manchester city centre told him the company had a ‘zero tolerance policy’ to serving homeless people – McDonald’s has denied such a policy exists.’

The Human Cost of the FIFA World Cup

The Human Cost of the FIFA World Cup

‘As the world watches the 2014 FIFA World Cup, people are protesting the cost and the human rights violations being committed by police and security forces to protect this corporate investment.

Working people in Brazil are understandably frustrated with the public cost of the World Cup, an estimated $14 billion. When compared to spending on social services, the cost of the World Cup is the equivalent of 61% of funding for education, or 30% of the funding for healthcare. Private companies, including those in the services and construction industries, will be the main beneficiaries of this public money. Adding to this cost is the forced evictions of the poor living in the favelas (slums) and the dispossession of indigenous people from their lands to build stadiums and parking lots. [1]

Over one million people in Brazil have protested the cost of the World Cup, the cutbacks and increased costs of social services, forced evictions, and other human rights violations.’

Bolivia Passes Law To Allow 10-Year-Olds To Work

Bolivia Passes Law To Allow 10-Year-Olds To Work

‘Bolivia’s Congress has passed legislation to allow children as young age 10 to work as long as it does not interfere with their education and is done independently to help the child’s family make ends meet.

The legislation otherwise lowers the legal working age to 12 — again, as long the job does not interfere with the child’s education.’

Babylon Is Fallen – by kate u/v kaia

http://kateofgaia.wordpress.com/ Pictures displayed by Street Democracy

admiralty-law-words-001-640x373

1. NAME: The master key to the entire system’s/CROWN CORPORATION’S game. The NAME is the lynch pin to the entire legal/control construct. Without a LEGAL NAME, which is your consent by agreeing to be said NAME, the system vampires cannot literally feed on your life blood/creation source energy that is typically shown in the physical materials we collect. It is only the CONSENT to be/use/have a LEGAL NAME/Mark of the Beast that is required for your absolute spiritual contract/deal with the devil motif to be in FULL FORCE AND EFFECT with you as a SLAVE and them as MASTER. For PROOF of this, look and see how much of your life/existence involves a LEGAL NAME and you will see the measure of control the system has over you.

BjCJFK1IgAEfU86

2. REGISTER/REGISTRATION etc. : Any/all things registered are FULLY SURRENDERED with consent to the CROWN CORPORATION with NO legal recourse until such things are removed by exposing the INTENT by those who serve the CROWN CORPORATION to commit fraud knowingly/unknowingly.
ex: A child that is REGISTERED is CROWN PROPERTY by ignorant consent where the truth of REGISTERING was not brought forth which is the original INTENT by CROWN CORPORATION SERVANT’S OWNERS to have people offer their children unknowingly into slavery of soul, and thus, body. It’s the soul they’re really after, so keep that in mind.

BllT016CIAAtz2C
3. MONEY, GOLD, SILVER, ASSETS, BITCOIN etc. are ALL illusions of value where YOU are the true creator of all physical manifestations. Money, external value, has been the tool as the third party interloper “middle man” that has made draining your power possible. Money or the like only has value if one has been duped into thinking it does. This illusion is the ultimate distraction and destroyer of creator souls, literally. ALL money is based on the soul CONTRACT commonly known as a BIRTH CERTIFICATE.

Blp8u23IQAAs5PA

4. BIRTH CERTIFICATE: The ORIGINAL SIN CONTRACT. The NAME you think/claim as yours is NOT your creation. Your “assumed NAME” was created by your parents/family members/adoptive kin, NOT YOU. This is an ORIGINAL CREATION manifested by another that is, in turn, REGISTERED thus rendering it CROWN CORPORATION PROPERTY as previously stated. It is upon this deception that YOUR literal soul was and is enslaved and upon which ALL MONEY/DEBT is created. A DEBT BOND “value” was placed in the BIRTH CERTIFICATE based on the assumed accruement of TAXES, LOANS, DEBTS a child is expected to pay as long as they are part of this FRAUD upon humanity.
ex: If someone is expected to pay a certain amount of taxes etc. in their lifetime, the BOND is given a DEBT “VALUE”. A child born into a wealthy family will have a higher debt bond value than someone who is of a lesser perceived “income bracket” rating. This is slave trading at its finest which divides and conquers humanity in the SERF/CASTE/HIERARCHY system that encompasses the planet.

slavery

5. COMMAND AND CONTROL: The courts and governments are the system slaves within, bought and paid for where the true command and control aspects are the POLICE/MILITARY as the front line dogs and fear contractors for those above the courts and governments such as the BANKS/RELIGIONS and those that control them. The courts and governments are merely the filler for this “sandwich” of deception and illusion. Without the ability to CONTRACT via any/all NAMES at the front line level, the whole system of control is destroyed, most importantly those at the very top of this spiritual slavery pyramid. Without the NAME, all levels above are ultimately annihilated completely.

politicallanguage

6. THE TRIPLE CROWN: This consists of ROME, CITY OF LONDON CROWN CORPORATION and WASHINGTON D.C. They are the unholy trinity of the 3 in 1, 1 in 3 as illustrated clearly in the Papal Crown: Religion, to control the beliefs, minds and spirituality of humanity, the Courts and Banks to control the money/bonds and the world Police/ Military to quash rebellion and act as frontline contractors of soul extractions.

1545085_10152119092376445_1612158270_n

7. PRINCIPALITIES OF DARKNESS: This is the true nature of the game that the vastness of humanity is blind to.

Religions have been used to separate you from source by making one believe “god” is external and use the “savior” program to reinforce this. Money is the tool that is used to keep people in the physical-only realm by getting them to equate an external “value” on everything where nothing would exist without the people and their creativity.

Physical death and harm is the tool used to clamp down your true essence which is all creation itself. The tools employed are languages with the corruption of pure frequency intent with multiple meanings of the same sounds/frequencies, using WORDS and SPELLINGS (literally), thus dividing and conquering us and redirecting our energy into THEIR creations and control. These entities CANNOT create anything since they are soulless and thus, utterly powerless.

They know this and are absolutely terrified because this spells their doom, once and for all. We are life with consciousness where these entities are consciousness without life/soul/spirit. They are COMPLETELY AND SOLELY DEPENDENT on getting our CONSENT or spiritual contract agreement and this is easily achieved through the NAME deception, buying people off, ego comforts etc. Their whole house of cards/pyramid is BASED on this FACT. We are the fuel for their system/vehicle. Without spiritual fuel, they are destroyed.

Vodafone reveals how governments around world spy on calls

‘Secret cables allow government spies in many countries to listen in to conversations on Vodafone’s network, the telecom giant has revealed.

The company, which is publishing a report on surveillance by governments, said the system was widely used in some of the 29 states where it operates.

The direct-access wires or pipes are connected to its network, allowing conversations to be recorded and mobile phone users to be tracked. In six of the countries, the wires are a legal requirement for telecoms companies.

Stephen Deadman, of Vodafone, told The Guardian: “These pipes exist, the direct-access model exists.’

Fracking is another blow to our already fragile eco system.

We are witnessing psychopathic greed, selfishly careering us all towards imminent death with the contamination of our natural water’s down underground, with no concerns about this at all.

BbF2p7_CYAA-HDG

It is insanity to believe the industrialisation of fracking isn’t going to harm our planet, causing death zones of greater magnitude destroying our wildlife, our plants and eventually cause serious water shortages!

It is the extinction button these greedy corporate psychopaths are willing to press at the expense and great cost of our planet.

The fossil fuel industry with aggressive drilling technology is ecological suicide, by venal politicians fondling their pockets for more profits.

Our deformed corrupt capitalist economic model is a model of death-destruction and pollution. It must be changed!

 

Hydro fracking is an aggressive and dangerous method of extracting natural pockets of gas and our current political apparatus is ignoring the public’s pleas and much educated demands by saying ‘no’ to this exploitation.

We are under an Oligarchical Hierarchical system of Corporate control of our State and Government. That is equal to a Totalitarian ruler-ship!

The evil’s crippling our economy, are planning to cripple earth also systematically stealing earth’s natural resources with a model of corrupt capitalism, a model of pain and death that has strangled democracy further into obliviation.

Anti-Fracking-in-Manchester-2994521

Dear Street Democracy,

Shocking news.

Today David Cameron announced plans to let fracking companies drill under our homes without asking us. 

He suggested an appalling change to the law that almost three-quarters of the people in Britain oppose.

The Prime Minister is trying to put fracking company profits before our right to decide what happens underneath our homes. But MPs will have the final say on whether these changes become law.

So we’ve joined up with our friends at Greenpeace to launch an urgent petition to all MPs.

Please add your name

Cheney

Just last week we celebrated three years of keeping our homes and communities free from dirty, dangerous fracking. The fracking industry and Government know they’re losing this struggle. That’s why they’re trying to change the rules. But we can stop fracking companies from ripping up our countryside and polluting the climate.

Sign our petition asking MPs to oppose this underhand attempt to allow fracking under our homes

945572_460379020720415_819738100_n

These plans are hidden and kept away from public knowledge. This is a serious crime against humanity and we have every right to have our free, clean, unlimited energy.

You’ve helped communities across the country hold back fracking in their area. Now we need your help to make sure MPs don’t let the Government take away the right to object to fracking underneath our homes. Let’s stand up to this disgraceful bullying tactic together.

Best wishes,

Nikki & the fracking team

BmdRzcvIUAE0ix-

Fracking is the extinction button ready to be pressed. We cannot allow the destruction of our planet, the pollution of our natural water for the few greedy individuals wishing to profit.

Ask MPs to stop companies fracking under homes without permission

Fossil fuel companies fracking under people’s homes without asking them. That’s what David Cameron wants. And he’s sneakily trying to change the law to make it happen.

Please don’t let him get away with it. Sign our petition below. And share it far and wide. Thank you.

Why the petition? We need as many MPs as possible to vote against this change in law.

A petition with tens of thousands of our names will put great pressure on MPs to vote no.

What’s more, we’ve teamed up with Greenpeace to get as many names as possible.

Please sign now

Dear Members of Parliament,

74% of people in Britain are against changes to trespass laws that would allow fracking companies to drill under homes without permission. I urge you to oppose government plans to change the law and vote against it when you have the chance.

Infowars analysis note: The official list ends above.

What’s important to understand is that there are always members who will be attending, but who don’t want to be included in the list, due to laws such as 18 U.S. Code § 953, otherwise known as the Logan Act, which makes it a felony offense – punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years – for any member of federal or state government to meet with members of a foreign government without the express authority and authorization of the president or congress.

Yesterday, Bilderberg put out a press release detailing the official talking points to be addressed at this year’s meeting. From our research, this is not their primary agenda, but usually one put out to appease the media:

Copenhagen, 26 May 2014 – The 62nd Bilderberg meeting is set to take place from 29 May until 1 June 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark. A total of around 140 participants from 22 countries have confirmed their attendance. As ever, a diverse group of political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media have been invited. The list of participants is available on http://www.bilderbergmeetings.org

The key topics for discussion this year include:

• Is the economic recovery sustainable?
• Who will pay for the demographics?
• Does privacy exist?
• How special is the relationship in intelligence sharing?
• Big shifts in technology and jobs
• The future of democracy and the middle class trap
• China’s political and economic outlook
• The new architecture of the Middle East
• Ukraine
• What next for Europe?
• Current events

Founded in 1954, Bilderberg is an annual conference designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America. Every year, between 120-150 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media are invited to take part in the conference. About two thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America; approximately one third from politics and government and the rest from other fields.

123

The conference is a forum for informal discussions about major issues facing the world. The meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule, which states that participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s) nor of any other participant may be revealed.

Thanks to the private nature of the conference, the participants are not bound by the conventions of their office or by pre-agreed positions. As such, they can take time to listen, reflect and gather insights.

There is no desired outcome, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued.

Update about ‘Balcombe Drilling: Cease the oil exploration activities of Cuadrilla in Balcombe.’ on Change.org

The Fracks in local democracy.
(Concerning the WSCC planning meeting to decide on Cuadrilla’s planning application)

Despite a petition of nearly five and a half thousand signatures, despite over 850 objections – West Sussex County Council chose to ignore the material objection that Cuadrilla has no social licence to be in Balcombe. Well informed and well researched speeches were delivered by residents, which only served to highlight the obvious lack of reading and thought that the voting councillors (with the exception of one – thank you Sue Mullins) had put into this planning meeting. It is a sad day for democracy when the committee, like every other body involved in this process from the EA to the DECC, dismisses some of the most serious concerns as ‘not in their remit’. Then whose responsibility are these concerns? It shows a ridiculous lack of foresight, when an exploration company is allowed to have its process considered piecemeal in separate planning applications, without considering the end-game of oil production close to residents. Thus, each new application is in part validated by the fact that the previous one was approved. Very clever Lord Browne!

Cuadrilla director Lord Browne

Back to our WSCC committee of elected representatives – evidence of health risks from flaring? Not their concern. Cuadrilla’s own researchers admit fluid can migrate up to 2000ft along fault plains and intend to put fluid down an uncased lateral borehole in a highly faulted area, within 1600ft of the aquifer- apparently nobody’s concern. Cuadrilla failed to include certain gases in their models of flaring emissions; have lost air samples and failed to consider the contour of the land so that the flare will actually pump chemicals out at more or less the level of our village (Lower Stumble is lower than Balcombe remember) -apparently nobody’s concern. Then of course there are the regulatory bodies that are supposed to protect us, but instead make assumptions that Cuadrilla has effectively self-regulated, which we know from past history that they have not. The HSE for example, have admitted they made no onsite checks of the well, yet this is part of their own best practice to ensure well failure does not occur. The WSCC and EA have then based their own permits on the idea that the well is, in fact, sound. This cannot be guaranteed, and as we have seen in Singleton, well failure does happen. Again – apparently nobody’s concern. Climate change? Clearly nobody’s concern, and certainly not the government’s, who admit climate change is occurring in one breath whilst redirecting subsidies away from renewables and into onshore oil and gas with the other. At what cost do we want our energy? We can only hope now, that an educated public will use their votes wisely.

As a result of the decision taken in this meeting Frack Free Balcombe Resident’s association has now written to WSCC to inform them that they are prepared to take the case to a Judicial Review on the basis that the decisions of the committee were unlawful. They were not made with due diligence and attention to a number of very important issues. Among these being the issue of flaring, lack of well checks and WSCC ignoring public opinion.

Here We Go! Spreading Across Nations Like A True Ruling Elite Psychopathic Disease-Nice And Slow-Thailand’s army declares martial law

Thailand’s army declares martial law

rothschild-banks1 (1)

Deliberate engineering of societal destabilisation treating each nation as one open air prison, one giant economic plantation. They are using the divide and conquer technique as it never fails.

Street Democracy writes:

Although very real for the people, mainly the poor, the working poor, and lower classes, this social and political agitation is a game set and match for ruling elites pushing for a World War.

It’s a psychopathic main frame of no empathy or compassion but a hunger for power and control.

It is a deliberate destabilisation of each society to cause confusion, blaming one group then involving another group, and then having the government declare ‘Martial Law’ as if legitimising police brutality for social control.

BjlYnBjIcAA_bVi

They don’t mind you knowing. They are beyond reach and sit above the law-for now.

The ruling elites treat our societies across the globe as ‘outside’ prisons, we the people are ‘free range’ but caged never the less by the hidden hands that rule over us.

They are engineering wars.

They engineer civil unrest, a spiral of social agitation and destabilisation for peaceful nations which are viewed as simply ‘economic’ plantations or ‘work camps’ by the elites, just on the scale of a nation.

We are to work for them, so this is just business.

This is depopulating the planet to make it easier for them to manage.

takers

They dumb us down-make us skill-less, blame our poverty for the failures of the world, call us ‘useless eaters’ and now they want us dead to take our lands.

They want the lands free of peasant ownership.

The want the lands free of people full stop.

They want their own governments in charge of these nations and then to move in their banking systems and their micro chip populations. 

We will see more social unrest, more civil uproar and more societal legitimate rage being waged at the ruling elites split into two.

543840_360140194104078_446810302_n

Sophisticated psychology of dividing our minds to blame those being pointed at by corporate controlled mainstream news and people still believe it.

One set are the legitimate rulers whether good or not, if they don’t obey the Rothschild’s they are out with all kinds of staged propaganda highlighted frequently by the controlled corporate mainstream media.

To financially destroy the lands is easy and this creates a new level of poverty and a new level of anxiousness that blames and points the finger at whoever the media says.

In the meantime it gives the powers who shouldn’t be access by causing so much division, divide and conquer, that they come in playing the hero’s while they caused the savage agenda.

bbc

Keep your eyes on behind the system being played out.

Don’t get sucked into the nitty gritty politics of the blame game as you have no real evidence anyway, its all on hear say by main stream.

Don’t let them fool you, but see the game played out in each nation.

You’ll see the pattern of destruction then, a little bit more easier.

Thailand’s army declares martial law

‘Thailand’s army declared martial law in a surprise announcement that it said was aimed at keeping the country stable after six months of sometimes violent political unrest. The military, however, denied a coup d’etat was underway.

The move effectively places the army in charge of public security nationwide. It comes one day after the Southeast Asian country’s caretaker prime minister refused to step down and follows six months of anti-government demonstrations that have failed to oust the government.

The army said in a statement it had taken the action to “keep peace and order.” Armed troops entered multiple private television stations in Bangkok to broadcast their message nationwide. Although troops were deployed at some intersections, the vast metropolis of 10 million people appeared calm and commuters could be seen driving and walking to work as usual.’

Thailand’s army declares martial law: Military chief orders censorship of media and ban on protests… but insists it isn’t a military coup

‘Thailand’s army has declared martial law, intensifying the turbulent nation’s deepening political crisis but denying a coup d’etat was under way.

The shock pre-dawn announcement, which effectively places the army in charge of public security nationwide, came after six months of anti-government demonstrations aimed at ousting the government and a day after the south-east Asian country’s caretaker prime minister refused to step down.

The army said in a statement that the military had taken the action to ‘keep peace and order’ and soldiers entered several private television stations in the capital Bangkok to broadcast their message.”
