Our Mania for Hope Is a Curse

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.”

Ministers want to make it more difficult to expose what they’re up to behind closed doors

Ministers want to make it more difficult to expose what they’re up to behind closed doors

new Thursday 14th May 2015 at 09:01 By David Icke

‘Ministers could be given stronger powers to block scrutiny of public bodies under government transparency law, Downing Street has said.

Speaking ahead of the expected release of documents detailing Prince Charles’s correspondence with ministers, Number 10 argued that there was a “strong case” for beefing up the ministerial veto on freedom of information requests.

“Our view remains – as the government has argued in the lengthy legal proceedings [regarding the Prince’s correspondence] – that there is a strong case for there being the ability to exercise a ministerial veto,” he told a briefing of journalists.’

Our Tory government have an intolerable thirst to inflict legalised oppressions with lips of blue, spouting verbal destruction towards human rights, basic civil liberties and our welfare state.

 

Tory political bullies set a furious legalised corrupt expedition at our expense to the point it is so obvious they having to reset laws to become invisible to the public eye.

 

Democracy expresses an ‘open government’ representing its legitimacy and the Tories want a shut tight, closed one.

 

It is painfully obvious corruption is saturated within Tory government with a fanatical commitment to its ceaseless expansion that it needs to legalise hiding behind armed guard doors.

 

We are saturated by antagonising and oppressive policies and forced to walk a darken loathsome pathyway filled with sour principles and unclean wisdom by virtue of the Tory Party.

The frontline of our government shatters the illusion, the fiction we have a democracy when power ‘disgraced power’ struts into Westminster, without any mechanisms of democracy to gain access.
Eyes of ‘Tory blue’ ravenous and allured by scent of political empowerment, the finanical incentives it brings and plenty of extra ‘secret’ corporate hand shakes fill Westminster.
Our government is in fact filled with anti-democratic avenues of nameless and faceless legions of bueaucrats who run government based on financial manoeuvres.BmZEG9NIUAAh-LU
We have a democracy that serves the elites, the oligarchs the corporate masters and now the Tory unhinged, unshackled, free to excel concentrated wealth and power further.
Michael Gove is a weak leader, who hides behind policies that suppress society without using force.
Using the Tory language of ‘double speak’, confusion and political jargon while hiding behind a police state, ‘so there is nothing we can do about it’!
These are the ‘figures of fiends’ in power and we need to watch carefully.

‘Michael Gove is to be returned to a major government department as justice secretary in the wake of the Conservative general election victory.

In a second round of senior appointments since the election, the prime minister is reshuffling Gove, who has been his chief whip in charge of party discipline since July last year, to the Ministry of Justice, taking charge of prisons, sentencing and criminal justice.

Gove was removed as education secretary last year to head the whips’ office, reportedly at the behest of the party’s general election strategist Lynton Crosby, who feared that the former journalist’s “toxic image” could be a vote loser. At the time Gove’s wife, the journalist Sarah Vine, made her feelings clear about the cabinet minister’s move out of the limelight by tweeting a link to a Daily Mail article that the newspaper headlined “A shabby day’s work which Cameron will live to regret”.’

This Kind of Justice, eh Mr Gove?: July 2014 – Home Office ‘child abuse cover-up’: Michael Gove rules out public inquiry into claims of paedophile politicians at Westminster

‘The Education Secretary has insisted that there should not be a public inquiry into a possible cover-up of paedophile politicians in Westminster, after it emerged that more than 100 Home Office files related to historic allegations of child abuse have gone “missing”.

Lord Tebbit, who served in the Cabinet under Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s, said today that there “may well have been” a political cover-up in order to “protect the establishment” of the time.

The files, which related to a 20-year period between 1979 and 1999, were flagged up as part of an internal Home Office review into a dossier, prepared by Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens, alleging paedophile activity at Westminster in the 1980s.’

Concerned? We Should Be! Unshackled from Coalition partners, Tories get ready to push radical agenda

Unshackled from Coalition partners, Tories get ready to push radical agendanoam-chomsky-political-quote-how-the-world-worksStreet Democracy writes:

Our Tory ‘iron fists of blue’ have legalised mechanisms of closing avenues of democracy, obliterating the ordinary strength of the people, ripping the pathways of voice and criminalising the echo’s of dissent.
‘Soulless suits of blue’ with deliberate fierce hosting over the years was shocking enough. Now their chains are loose, corporate heads remain hidden, power given by seemingly legitimate ‘rig free’ voting system, the chill is in the air of ice blue and it’s settled nicely.
Devoid of moral fibre we shall experience ferocious economic cuts for the poor, disabled, the welfare state, nhs and all those within the lower end of society, while we watch the embracing and supporting of the oligarchs furthering legalised money trafficking from the wealth of the nation to the concentrated few and their pockets.

The Tories ‘Austerity Package’ just meant financially starve the welfare state, then when it collapses hand it over to the oligarchs. Job well done! By Debbie Simmons-Street Democracy

It is clear democracy, the ‘trickle down’ effect has failed, or it hasn’t started ever where the wealthy didn’t control it. Democracy is still a good idea for us to pursue, we just have a ‘different’ kind of democracy, one where the oligarchs control government and defend their own economic interests.

‘David Cameron will use the Conservative Party’s first majority in the House of Commons for nearly 20 years to “deliver” on a radical agenda to cut welfare, shrink the size of the state and re-define Britain’s relationship with Europe.

Conservative insiders said Mr Cameron would move to the right to consolidate support among his backbench MPs after five years of compromise with the Liberal Democrats.

Among Mr Cameron’s first legislative priorities will be to enshrine an EU referendum into law, bring in the so-called ‘snoopers charter’ to give police greater powers to monitor internet communications and give English MPs a veto over legislation only affecting England. The Tories also intend to publish plans to scrap the Human Rights Act within their first 100 days. All proposals had been previously blocked by the Lib Dems.’

The crushing force of capitalism: Back to the dark ages of feudalism

The crushing force of capitalism: Back to the dark ages of feudalism

‘History never repeats itself, but from time to time, consciously or not, some influential men attempt to force us into the monstrosity of their imaginary time machines to try to reverse decades, and in the case of feudalism, almost a millennium of social progress.

The mid-20th century brought the years of collective psychosis of Adolf Hitler’s “thousand year Reich,” and more recently what can be viewed as the United States of America’s imperialist manifesto or so-called “Project for the New American Century”, concocted in 1997 but still in effect today under the current administration, with the self-proclaimed objective to “promote American global leadership” resolutely and by military force, if necessary.’

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.

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.

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.
