Other Thoughts and Goals
I don’t want to cause offence just for the sake of it, but I suspect that most readers are at some point going to find the content challenging for different reasons.
I expect the website and journal content to become more interesting. I want to continue the themes I have already begun (Brave New World, vaccines, carbon tax, petitions), but there is also a lot of diverse information to share with readers. Even though I build on the work of other researchers, hopefully you notice some original ideas occasionally, as everyone has their own individual ways of thinking and life experiences.
I think it’s likely that I will be sharing some information that has never been published on the Internet before, and I hope to make new connections and discoveries–at least as far as the Internet and alternative media is concerned.
As far as doing something about the awful reality we are facing–to put a stop to H. G. Wells’ “Open Conspiracy” of “social reconstruction”–I have started to take a fresh look at the topic of active strategies (in addition to the sort of political activity I was involved with in the past). I want to take a look at what others have already come up with and see what can be applied in the real world effectively—beyond social media and into official channels. What can be done using words and information–when words and information are directed off-line through independent politicians, the legal system, affidavits to police and prosecutors, product boycotts, petitions to legislatures, petitions to corporations, school boards, and officials of all kinds?
A major reason for creating this publication: As there are growing efforts to censor the Internet–the noise about “fake news” being a sign of this–I think that we should prepare to direct a lot more attention to off-line communication so that data can be shared in different ways, in print or otherwise. I have other ideas about this (nothing original as far as I know). The problem with the Internet isn’t just the efforts at censorship, and it isn’t just about how it is used as a surveillance tool. I also think that the Internet leads us away from making beneficial connections with others, connections which are necessary for building something real.
All of this might seem too ambitious, but I think that’s how it has to be. I feel like making a break with most of the alternative media trends. After a while, being mesmerized with alternative media becomes very similar to being mesmerized by TV.
One of the realizations I’ve had recently after considering the wrecking ball that is demolishing the lives of many people we know personally–as far as health and relationships and everything else–is that it’s not enough to think that we can actually have any kind of tolerable future at all if we just have a passive approach to the New World Order machine imposing its toxic policies.
Even though its agenda has been in the planning for a long time and most people are in differing degrees blind to what is happening, I really don’t think we can just stand by as paralyzed and mesmerized on-lookers.
Myself, for sure, I am not going to get caught up in the manipulations of some false opposition either, letting some bozos herd me around in useless directions with ridiculous fantasies. Don’t hand over your responsibility for your thinking and decisions to those who are going to lead you around in circles.
I am hoping that those who are like-minded and able to build connections can work together in some ways while at the same time exercising independent thought.
