Digital Media KGB Multiplies Minions

Digital Media KGB Multiplies Minions

“There can be no liberty in a community which lacks the means by which to detect lies.”

Walter Lippmann, Propagandist for Woodrow Wilson

Author of Public Opinion

It is well recognized that whoever controls the media and education implants the ideas that control the minds and thereby the actions of individuals, groups, and nations.

Today, via the use of digital media, people of all ages are being uploaded with an internal KGB. An addictive digital KGB, which not only provides a steady diet of deception and disinformation, but is also shaping the very neural structure of the individual interacting with the media. Recall that: the behavior, the actions, whatever one does, experiences or focuses on, modifies the neural system no less than the neural system directs the behavior. This is the essence of education ie. Neuroplasticity.

By habituating to a digital media culture we are subjugating to the very means that will be the destruction of free-thinking and rational acting individuals. As digital media integrates into every activity of daily life, from social media, research, education, finance, news, techno-nanny, communication, commerce, labor etc. it widens its net of influence, dependency and control over the social, emotional, economic, moral and religious aspects of human beings.

By controlling, censoring, tracking access to ‘information’ all the while shaping the internal structures and reflexive habits, digital media acts as the KGB shaping the minds of minions. Minions whose internal habits will be conditioned to act upon the embedded logic of software, specific phraseology, emotions, perceived “rights”, and falsehoods– not unlike those of regimes of the past. (French Revolutions, Bolshevik Communism, Stalinism, Fascism, Nazism, Democratic Socialism, Utopianism….etc.)

The success of those regimes laid not so much in their force and fraud, as in the receptive condition of the minds of the common people. The revolutions and regimes were ‘successful’ because the people had been conditioned to want them. Most people do not want to lead, only to follow. Follow a regime that promises comfort, security and prosperity.

But, there are those who wish to lead, and lead they will. Using external means to shape the internal volition. 

—“A government strong enough to act in defiance of public feeling may disregard the plausible heresy that prevention is better than punishment, for it is able to punish.

—But a government entirely dependent on opinion looks for some security what that opinion shall be, strives for the control of the forces that shape it, and is fearful of suffering the people to be educated in sentiments hostile to its institutions.”

Statesman historian Lord Acton (1834-1902) commenting on Democracy.

Most statesmen recognized that democracy degenerates to socialism and ultimately to absolutism of some fashion. (Totalitarianism, despotism, etc.) Recall that Marx stated, “the first step in the revolution is…to establish democracy.”

Just as the: tax on paper in the 18th century; prohibition on slaves being taught to read; Marx’s Communist Manifesto platform of “free public education” aligned with industrial production; Fascism’s Gleichschaltung programs and Agencies of Propaganda, it is proven that the intent is to deny access to truth and the means by which to recognize truth. Thereby creating an easily manipulated mass of common minions, unable to sustain Liberty.

On this subject, the views of a professional deceptionist may be relevant.

“According to a senior KGB defector, Western opinion has been skillfully and systematically duped ever since Lenin’s NEP (New Economic Policy ie. State capitalism).

The control of all information, combined with selective leaks and plants, enabled the Soviet security service to feed the West with an endless stream of false impressions.

The ‘de-Stalinization’ of the 1950’s was only a modified form of Stalinism. The ‘Sino-Soviet split’ of 1960 was jointly engineered by the CPSU and the CPC. ‘Romanian independence’ was a myth invented for the convenience both of Moscow and Bucharest. Czechoslovak ‘democratization’ in 1968 was orchestrated by progressive elements in the KGB. ‘Eurocommunism’ was another sham. Even ‘Solidarity’ in Poland was run by Moscow’s agents.” Published in 1984, before Gorbachev’s rise to power, this expose’ of the KGB by an insider is obligatory reading for anyone pondering the ambiguities of ‘glasnost’ and ‘perestroika’, or the mysteries of the 1991 ‘Putsch’.

The problem is: when do professional deceivers stop deceiving?”

Anatoliy Golitsyn, New Lies for Old: The Communist Strategy of Deception and Disinformation (London 1984), 412

It is said, “perception is 99% of reality.” One’s interpretation, one’s “perception” of reality is dependent upon one’s prior experiences and how the meaning of those experiences was mediated to the recipient. This is why parents are designated by God to be the mediators of meaning, of values, knowledge, beliefs to their children. Fashioning a mind, a value system, a framework upon which to anchor one’s life is serious business. It matters to God and ought to matter to each of us.

Today we have adults online the majority of their waking hours; youth on-line 24-7; mandated K-12 public education digital “E-learning” via Congressional ESSA; ‘educational’ digital media gaming, social media, university, collegiate, continuing ed requiring on-line, digital ‘learning’; presidential BRAIN Initiatives (propagandized as conducting “research” on how the brain works) using taxpayer, foundational, and crony capitalism funds increasing the density of “The NET” to harvest more minions for processing.

This digital Processing is using internal neural chemistry reward centers (nucleus accumbens, dopamine etc.), neural compulsion loops shaping public opinion, neural connections, embedding symbolic images, phrase triggers, ideologies and reflexes serving as the internal formative KGB for soul consumption and mass production of minions.

Research documents 20% reduction in white and gray matter in specific areas of the brain associated with cognition, impulse control and rational thought in digital media users.

Technology oriented countries estimate over 30% of youth with Internet Addiction Disorder.

Digital media use embeds Attention Deficit Disorder as do “Smart Phones”, via the use of changing graphic media, incessant distractions, constant interruptions, texting, emotional content and imperative compulsive nature.

The hyper-vigilant angst inducing state of digital media users is resulting in heightened drug, alcohol, gaming use seeking to imitate the euphoric neurochemical experience induced in the brain or to calm the burnout inherent under digital compulsion overwhelming folks with sensory and information overload.

Kept on a steady diet of propaganda media, movies and global atrocities the masses are increasingly diffusing, sipping, sniffing, smoking, snorting, ingesting and injecting pharmaceuticals, foodiceuticals, supplements, weeds, oils, off label compounding at unprecedented rates in attempts to escape from the stresses of the “technology” that was to make life more comfy, secure and convenient.

And this is good? Perhaps so, if you want a populace designed for slavery…or are an investor in such “capitalist” enterprises.

Economic gobble-ization via division of labor (Adam Smith knew, that while it was good for “Wealth of Nations” it produces very stupid people), removes the ability for independence, self-government, and liberty under God. In the end it results in soul consumption, the self-destruction of the digitally uploaded minions.

The Antidote:

Unplug and take control of your own brain wiring and that of your children.

DeTox. Take charge of the stimuli, experiences and information, which enters your sensory systems.

Return to The Word. Learn to astutely discern the Truth, the times and prepare to fulfill your role in His Plan.

They Thought They Were Free, The Germans, 1933-1945

They Thought They Were Free

The Germans, 1933-1945

By Milton Mayer (an excerpt)

 

But Then It Was Too Late

“What no one seemed to notice,” said a colleague of mine, a philologist, “was the ever widening gap, after 1933, between the government and the people. Just think how very wide this gap was to begin with, here in Germany. And it became always wider. You know, it doesn’t make people close to their government to be told that this is a people’s government, a true democracy, or to be enrolled in civilian defense, or even to vote. All this has little, really nothing, to do with knowing one is governing.

“What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.

“This separation of government from people, this widening of the gap, took place so gradually and so insensible, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms, too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter.

“You will understand me when I say that my Middle High German was my life. It was all I cared about. I was a scholar, a specialist. Then, suddenly, I was plunged into all the ne activity, as the university was drawn into the new situation; meetings, conferences, interviews, ceremonies, and, above all, papers to be filled out, reports, bibliographies lists, questionnaires. And on top of that were the demands in the community, the things in which one had to, was ‘expected to’ participate that had not been there or had not been important before. It was all rigmarole, of course, but it consumed all one’s energies coming on top of the work one really wanted to do. You can see how easy it was, then, not to think about fundamental things. One had no time.”

“Those,” I said, “are the words of my friend the baker. ‘One had no time to think. There was so much going on.’”

 

“Your friend the baker was right,” said my colleague. “The dictatorship, and the whole process of its coming into being, was above all diverting. It provided an excuse not to think for people who did not want to think anyway. I do not speak of your ‘little men,’ your baker and so on; I speak of my colleagues and myself, learned men, mind you. Most of us did not want to think about fundamental things and never had. There was no need to. Nazism gave us some dreadful, fundamental things to think about—we were decent people—and kept us so busy with continuous changes and ‘crises’ and so fascinated, yes, fascinated, by the machinations of the ‘national enemies,’ without and within, that we had no time to think about these dreadful things that were growing, little by little, all around us. Unconsciously, I suppose we were grateful. Who wants to think?

“To live in this process is absolutely not to be able to notice it—please try to believe me—unless one has a much greater degree of political awareness, acuity, than most of us had ever had occasion to develop. Each step was so small, so inconsequential, so well explained or, on occasion, ‘regretted,’ that, unless one were detached from the whole process from the beginning, unless one understood what the whole thing was in principle, what all these ‘little measures’ that no ‘patriotic German’ could resent must some day lead to, one no more saw it developing from day to day than a farmer in his field sees the corn growing. One day it is over his head.

“How is this to be avoided, among ordinary men, even highly educated ordinary men? Frankly, I do not know. I do not see, even now. Many, many times since it all happened I have pondered that pair of great maxims, Principiis obsta and Finem respice—‘Resist the beginnings’ and “Consider the end.” But one must foresee the end clearly and certainly and how is this to be done, by ordinary men or even by extraordinary men? Things might have. And everyone counts on that might.

“Your ‘little men,’ your Nazi friends, were not against National Socialism in principle. Men like me, who were, are the greater offenders, not because we knew better (that would be too much to say) but because we sensed better. Pastor Neimoller spoke for the thousands and thousands of men like me when he spoke (too modestly of himself) and said that, when the Nazis attacked the Communists, he was a little uneasy, but, after all, he was not a Communist, and so he did nothing; and then they attacked the Socialists, and he was a little uneasier, but still he was not a Socialist, and he did nothing; and then the schools, the press, the Jews, and so on, and he was always uneasier, but still he did nothing. And then they attacked the Church, and he was a Churchman, and he did something—but then it was too late.”

“Yes,” I said.

“You see,” my colleague went on, “one doesn’t see exactly where or how to move. Believe me, this is true. Each act, each occasion, is worse that the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join with you in resisting somehow. You don’t want to act or even talk, alone; you don’t want to ‘go out of your way to make trouble.’ Why not?—Well, you are not in the habit of doing it. And it is not just for fear, fear of standing alone, that restrains you; it is also genuine uncertainty.

“Uncertainty is a very important factor, and, instead of decreasing as time goes on, it grows. Outside, in the streets, in the general community, ‘everyone’ is happy. One hears no protest, and certainly sees none. You know, in France or Italy there would be slogans against the government painted on walls and fences; in Germany, outside the great cities, perhaps, there is not even this. In the university community, in your own community, you speak privately to your colleagues, some of whom certainly feel as you do; but what do they say? They say, “it’s not so bad’ or ‘You’re seeing things’ or ‘You’re an alarmist.’

“And you are an alarmist. You are saying that this must lead to this, and you can’t prove it. These are the beginnings, yes; but how to you know for sure when you don’t know the end, and how do you know, or even surmise, the end? On the one hand, your enemies, the law, the regime, the Party, intimidate you. On the other, your colleagues pooh-pooh you as pessimistic or even neurotic. You are left with your close friends, who are, naturally, people who have always thought as you have.

“But your friends are fewer now. Some have drifted off somewhere or submerged themselves in their work. You no longer see as many as you did at meetings or gatherings. Informal groups become smaller; attendance drops off in little organizations, and the organizations themselves wither. Now, in small gatherings of your oldest friends, you feel that you are talking to yourselves, that you are isolated from the reality of things. This weakens your confidence still further and serves as a further deterrent to –to what? It is clearer all the time that, if you are going to do anything, you must make an occasion to do it, and then you are obviously a troublemaker. So you wait, and you wait.

“But the one great shocking occasion, when tens or hundreds or thousands will join with you, never comes. That’s the difficulty. If the last and worst act of the whole regime had come immediately after the first and smallest, thousands, yes, millions would have been sufficiently shocked—if, let us say, the gassing of the Jews in ’43 had come immediately after the ‘German Firm’ stickers on the windows of the non-Jewish shops in ’33. But of course this isn’t the way it happens. In between come all the hundreds of little steps, some of them imperceptible, each of them preparing yo not to be shocked by the next. Step C is not so much worse than Step B, and, if you did not make a stand at Step B, why should you at step C? And so on to Step D.

“And one day, to late, your principles, if you were ever sensible of them, all rush in upon you. The burden of self-deception has grown too heavy, and some minor incident, in my case my little boy, hardly more than a baby, saying ‘Jewish swine,’ collapses it all at once, and you see that everything, everything has changed and changed completely under your nose. The world you live in—your nation, your people—is not the world you were born in at all. The forms are all there, all untouched, all reassuring, the houses, the shops, the jobs, the mealtime, the visits, the concerts, the cinema, the holidays. But the spirit, which you never noticed because you made the lifelong mistake of identifying it with the forms, is changed. Now you live in a world of hate and fear, and the people who hate and fear do not even know it themselves; when everyone is transformed, no one is transformed. Now you live in a system which rules without responsibility even to God. The system itself could not have intended this in the beginning, but in order to sustain itself it was compelled to go all the way.

“You have gone almost all the way yourself. Life is a continuing process, a flow, not a succession of acts and events at all. It has flowed to a new level, carrying you with it, without any effort on your part. On this new level you live, you have been living more comfortably every day, with new morals, new principles. You have accepted things you would not have accepted five years ago, a year ago, things that your father, even in Germany, could not have imagined.

“Suddenly it all comes down, all at once. You see what you are, what you have done, or, more accurately, what you haven’t done (for that was all that was required of most of us: that we do nothing.) You remember those early meetings of your department in the university when, if one had stood, others would havde stood, perhaps, but no one stood. A small matter, a matter of hiring this man or that, and you hired this one rather than that. You remember everything now, and your heart breaks. Too late. You are compromised beyond repair.

“What then? You must then shoot yourself. A few did. Or ‘adjust’ your principles. Many tried, and some, I suppose, succeeded; not I, however. Or learn to live the rest of your life with your shame. This last is the nearest there is, under the circumstances, to heroism: shame. Many Germans became this poor kind of hero, many more, I think, than the world knows or cares to know.”

I said nothing. I thought of nothing to say.

“I can tell you,” my colleague went on, “of a man in Leipzig, a judge. He was not a Nazi, except nominally, but he certainly wasn’t an anti-Nazi. He was just—a judge. In ’42 or ’43, early ’43, I think it was, a Jew was tried before him in a case involving, but only incidentally, relations with an ‘Aryan’ woman. This was ‘race injury,’ something the Party was especially anxious to punish. In the case at bar, however, the judge had the power to convict the man of a ‘nonracial’ offense and send hi to an ordinary prison for a very long term, thus saving him from Party ‘processing’ which would have meant concentration camp or, more probably, deportation and death. But the man was innocent of the ‘nonracial’ charge, in the judge’s opinion, and so, as an honorable judge, he acquitted him. Of course, the Party seized the Jew as soon as he left the courtroom.”

“And the judge?”

“Yes, the judge. He could not get the case off his conscience—a case, mind you, in which he had acquitted an innocent man. He thought that he should have convicted him and saved him from the Party, but how could he have convicted an innocent man? The thing preyed on him more and more, and he had to talk about it, first to his family, then to his friends, and then to acquaintances. (That’s how I heard about it.) After the ’44 Puntsch they arrested him. After that, I don’t know.”

I said nothing.

“Once the war began,” my colleague continued, “resistance, protest, criticism, complaint, all carried with them a multiplied likelihood of the greatest punishment. Mere lack of enthusiasm, or failure to show it in public, was ‘defeatism.’ You assumed that there were lists of those who would be ‘dealt with’ later, after the victory. Goebbels was very clever here, too. He continually promised a ‘victory orgy’ to ‘take care of’ those who thought that their ‘treasonable attitude’ had escaped notice. And he meant it; that was not just propaganda. And that was enough to put an end to all uncertainty.

“Once the war began, the government could do anything ‘necessary’ to win it; so it was with the ‘final solution of the Jewish problem,’ which the Nazis always talked about but never dared to undertake, not even the Nazis, until war and its ‘necessities’ gave them the knowledge that they could get away with it. The people abroad who thought that war against Hitler would help the Jews were wrong. And the people in Germany who, once the war had begun, still thought of complaining, protesting, resisting, were betting on Germany’s losing the war. It was a long bet. Not many made it.”

******

Vielen Dank to our German friend, who kindly recommended Milton Mayer’s book.

This brief passage details the systematic intentional transformation of a people’s principles, values and culture gleaned from interviews with German people, many of whom look back with shame and regret. Shame and regret for lacking the courage to stand, resist, and refuse to made minions of The State.

While many of the German people sensed something was wrong, they chose to conform, adapt, ignore, compromise and capitulate the very foundations upon which liberty is possible; they allowed The State to usurp the reign of God.

Perhaps if individuals had been more diligent in the study of God’s Word, they would have recognized the “end” and acknowledged their part in acting in behalf of God’s chosen people The Jews.

Particularly, those that take His Name, ought to consider this and act upon this truth while there remains Time To  Choose.

Socialism 101: Recognizing 18 Features of the Socialist “Family”

Socialism 101: Recognizing 18 Features of the Socialist “Family”

 

“What has made us free is our Constitution…

The genius of the American constitutional system is the dispersal of power.

Once power is centralized in one person, or part [of government], a Bill of Rights is just words on paper.”

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia

 

Planning leads to dictatorship; the direction of economic activity inevitably necessitates the suppression of freedom.”

Friedrich Hayek, The Road to Serfdom 1944

 

Socialism: Socialism is a Collectivist social system based on public control of the means of production and distribution by a planning central authority.

Central planning is totalitarian. Any deviation from the decrees of the central authority are deemed as treason to the authority, the community, ‘the state.’

 

Totalitarianism: The term totalitarianism was taken up from 1928 to encompass the common denominator of both fascism and communism.

The socialist twins of terror, communism and fascism, were never identical: each evolved over time producing their own variety of offspring. There are at least 18 traits which ought to be recognized as American’s consider submitting to socialism.

  1. Nationalist-Socialist ideology. Both fascism and communism were radical movements which developed ideologies professing a blend of nationalist and socialist elements. During the 1920’s the Bolsheviks watered down their inter-nationalist principles, whilst adopting the characteristic premise of ‘National Bolshevism’. The German Nazis modified the socialist elements of their ideology over the same time period. In both cases the socialist-nationalist or national-socialist blend was stabilized in 1934.

Intentionally the communists and fascists were schooled to stress their differences. But when pressed to summarize their convictions they often gave strikingly similar answers. The populaces immersed in such social emotional education were apt to think of communists as ‘red fascists’ and of fascists as ‘brown communists.’

The 21st century version is touted as united nationalism on global proportions stressing humanitarianism, environmentalism and thus, centralized behavioral and economic planning.

 

  1. Pseudo-science. Both fascists and communists claimed to base their ideologies on fundamental scientific laws which supposedly determined the development of human society. Communists appealed to their version of ‘scientific Marxism’ or ‘historical materialism’, the Nazis to eugenics and racial science. Today, via the use of digital media, adaptive computer software, integrated formative assessments such as the Brain Initiative, computer gaming, social media etc. society is being engineered to a unified group mindset.

 

  1. Collectivism: Totalitarian regimes laid on all sorts of activity which strengthen collective bonds and weaken family and individual identity. State-run nurseries, ‘social art’, youth movements, party rituals, military parades, and group uniforms all served to cement high levels of social discipline and conformist behavior. In Fascist Italy, a system of Party-run Corporations was established to replace all former trade union and employers’ organizations.

 

  1. Utopian goals. All socialist totalitarians cherished the vision of a New Man who was to create a New Order cleansed of all present impurities. The nature of the vision varied. For some it was the final, classless stage of pure communism as preached by the Marxist-Leninist: the racist, Jew-free Aryan paradise of the Nazis; or the restoration of a pseudo-historical Roman empire in Italy. The New Order was a mission which justified all the sacrifices and brutalities of the present.

 

  1. Gangsterism: Many observers have noted the strong similarity between the conduct of socialist elites and that of professional criminal confraternities. Gangsters gain a parasitical hold over a community by ‘protecting’ it from the violence which they themselves generate. They habitually terrorize both their members and their victims, and eliminate their rivals. They manipulate the law and, whilst maintaining an importance façade of respectability, use blackmail and extortion to take control of all organizations in the locality. Ie. Regional Cities Initiatives.
  2. The dualistic party-state. Once in power, the totalitarian socialist party created organs within its own apparatus to duplicate and to oversee all other existing institutions. State structures were reduced to the status of conveyor belts for executing the Party’s wishes. Thus, this dualistic dictatorial system was much more pervasive than that implied by the familiar but misleading term of the ‘one-party state.’
  3. The Fuhrerprinzip or ‘Leader Principle’. Totalitarian socialist parties operated on strict hierarchical lines. They exacted slavish obedience from their minions, through the unquestioning cult of the Party Leader, the source of all wisdom and beneficence—the Fuhrer, the Vozhd’, the Duce, the Cadillo or the ‘Great Helmsman’. This was the centerpiece of both Stalinism and Hitlerism.
  1. Bureaucracy. All totalitarian socialist regimes required vast army of bureaucrats to staff the bloated and duplicated organs of the party-state. This bloated bureaucracy offered rapid advancement to droves of opportunistic individuals of any social origin. Entirely dependent on the Party, the bureaucracy formed the only social constituency whose interests the regime had to consider. At the same time it included a number of competing ‘power centers’ whose hidden rivalries gave rise to the only form of genuine political life in existence.
  1. Propaganda. Totalitarian Socialist propaganda owed much to the subliminal techniques of modern mass advertising. It employed emotive symbols, political art and impressive architecture, and the principle of the ‘Big Lie’. Its shameless demagoguery was directed at the vulnerable and vindictive elements of society uprooted by the tides of war and modernization. In the 21st century it is catalyzed by centralized control of technology used in education, social media, communications, healthcare, investment, industry, commerce and financial sectors.

“A government strong enough to act in defiance of public feeling may disregard the plausible heresy that prevention is better than punishment, for it is able to punish.

But a government entirely dependent on opinion

looks for some security [as to] what that opinion shall be, strives for the control of the forces that shape it, and is fearful of suffering the people to be educated in sentiments hostile to its institutions.”

Lord Acton in Essay on Democracy in Europe

 

  1. The Aesthetics of Power. Totalitarian Socialist regimes enforced a virtual monopoly in the arts, propagating an aesthetic environment which glorified the ruling Party, embellished the bonds between Party and people, reveled in heroic images of national myths, and indulged in megalomaniac fantasies. Italian Fascists, German Nazis, and Soviet Communists all shared an obsession with self-portraits of the Leader, grandiose galas, ostentatious building schemes, bogus benevolence, and monumental programming for populace homage.
  2. The dialectical enemy. No totalitarian regime could hope to legitimize its evil designs without an opposite evil to contend with. The rise of fascism in Europe was a godsend for the communists, who otherwise could only have justified themselves by reference to the more distant evils of liberalism, imperialism, and colonialism. The fascists never ceased to justify themselves in terms of their crusade against Bolshevism, nor the communists through ‘the struggle against fascism’. The contradictions within socialism provided the motor for hatreds and conflicts which it promoted.
  3. The psychology of hatred. Totalitarian Socialist regimes raised the emotional temperature by beating the drum of hatred against ‘enemies’ within and without. Honest adversaries or honorable opponents did not exist. In the fascist repertoire, Jews and communists headed the bill; in the communist repertoire, fascist, capitalist dogs, ‘kulaks’, and alleged saboteurs were mercilessly pilloried.
  4. Pre-emptive censorship. Socialist ideology could not operate without a watertight censorship controlling all sources of information. It was not sufficient to suppress unwanted opinions or facts; it was necessary to prefabricate all the data that was permitted to circulate.

21st century socialism advances the use of technology to fashion the socialist mindset for 21st century global workers via the KGB of internet media and computer adaptive software assessing and formatting the internal neural systems, thus behaviors, of users to be useful idiots for the socialist state.

  1. Genocide and coercion: Totalitarian Socialist regimes pushed political violence beyond all previous limits. An elaborate network of political police and security agencies was kept busy first in destroying all opponents and undesirables and later in inventing opponents to keep the machinery in motion. Genocidal campaigns against innocent social or racial ‘enemies’ via abortion, eugenics, euthanasia, medial experimentation or forced labor camps added credence to ideological claims and kept the population in a permanent state of fear. Mass arrests and shootings, concentration camps, and random murders were routine.

21st Century medical ‘care’, medical research, third-party payment (socialized medicine), healthcare rationing, UNCRPD tribunal oversight, taxpayer funded abortion, abortifacients, and legalized physician assisted suicide in the United States and Europe assure that Totalitarian Socialism is alive and well, while the masses will be whittled down to efficient proportions for said socialist ‘Utopia’.

  1. Universalism. Totalitarian Socialist regimes acted on the assumption that their system would somehow spread across the globe. Communist ideologues held that Marxism-Leninism was ‘scientific’ and therefore universally applicable. The Nazis marched to the refrain ‘Denn heute gehort uns Deutschland, Und morgen die ganze Weld’ (For today it’s Germany that’s ours, and tomorrow the whole wide world.) Lebensraum required room to live, propagate and build the Socialist Utopian Scientific Culture. UNESCO, Globalization 101, Communist Internationale-Comintern etc.
  2. Contempt for Individual Rights. All Totalitarian Socialists despised democratic constitutional republics for their personal liberties of conscience, religion, speech, association, private property, right to bear arms, and free-market commerce and for their attachment to law and tradition.
  3. Moral nihilism. All Totalitarian Socialists shared the view that their goals justified their means. ‘Moral Nihilism’, wrote one British observer, ‘is not only the central feature of National Socialism, but also the central feature between it and Bolshevism’.
  4. Militarism. Totalitarian Socialist regimes habitually magnified the ‘external threat’, or invented it, to rally citizens to the fatherland’s defense. Rearmament received top economic priority. Under party control, the armed forces of the state enjoyed a monopoly of weapons and high social prestige. All offensive military plans were described as defensive. Even against their own citizens. Today this is exemplified in Technologic armament dispensed to and stealthily acting upon citizenry for 21st century mind and soul mutilation.

Communist Socialism and Fascist Socialism obviously differed in their sources of self-identity. Communists were wedded to the class struggle, the Nazis to their campaign for racial purity. Important differences also lay in the social and economic realm. The fascists were careful to recruit the big industrialists to their cause- today’s global capitalism and chamber of commerce infrastructures.

The Communists abolished most aspects of private property. They nationalized industry, collectivized agriculture, and instituted central command planning. On these grounds, communism could be judged the more totalitarian branch in Socialism’s family tree.

“Economic control is not merely control of a sector of human life which can be separated from the rest;

It is the control of the means for our ends.

And whoever has sole control of the means

must also determine which ends are to be served,

Which values are to be rated higher and which lower—

In short, what men should believe and strive for.”

Friedrich Hayek, The Road to Serfdom

 

Personal liberty of life, labor, religion, conscience, education and private property cannot co-exist in a centrally planned economy, socialist nation, or a United Nations Globalized New World Order.

Once again Edmund Burke’s famous statement that ‘men learn the price of freedom when they are masters of slaves’, will resonate with the few that stand in resistance after the majority has surrendered liberty under God, for what is euphemistically called ‘socialist security’.

Definitions 101: Defining Terms to Precipitate Political Truth

Definitions 101: Defining Terms to Precipitate Political Truth

“There can be no liberty for a community which lacks the means

by which to detect lies.”

Walter Lippmann, author of Public Opinion

 

Ever since Man became a political creature, there have been two opposing views of the relationship between a community and its members:

  1. a) One that puts the state above the individual and
  2. b) One that puts the individual above the state.

Community: A body comprised of smaller units, individuals, citizens or cells united around a common creed, interest, locale, identity or purpose.

Polis: literally means “city” in Greek. Polis can also mean citizenship or a body of citizens. A polis was the typical structure of a community in the ancient Greek world i.e. City/states. A polis consisted of an urban centre, often fortified and with a sacred centre built on a natural acropolis or harbor, which controlled the surrounding territory of land.

Broadly a polis is a state or society especially when characterized by a sense of community.

Republicanism, Monarchism, Collectivism, Socialism, Fascism, Nazism, Communism, Anarchy, Tyranny and Liberty under God, exist because the mindset of the people is such that they want it.

Monarchy: Rule of one man (monarch, despot, autocrat) through appointed officials

Rights of ruler stressed over those of the ruled.

Monarchies exhibit the tendency to centralization of power and atrophy of regional and local authorities.

Ancient models: Sparta, Persia, and Roman Empire

 

Absolute Monarchy: Ruler’s will is supreme. “Law” is equivalent to the ‘ruler’s decree.’

It creates no polis. It expresses no relationship between a group and its members, only the power of one individual over all others. In a state identified with a single exalted individual, the conceptual connection between the community and the other individuals is dissevered and no more speculation is possible about their relative importance i.e. Louis XIV

Oligarchic System: “Rule by the few.” Membership in the ruling class can be acquired by birth, office, wealth, education, economic, business or financial control etc.

Double Political System:

For most communities there existed/exists a double political system. The relation between the state and the “upper class” being built on individualistic lines –the state as a device to protect elite interests– Protectionism of the privileged few.

For the lower class the system was/is Collectivist. The state does not see itself in a subordinate role, but rather as Master. The state grants the lower class protection of the law, but only in exchange for a claim on their services, resources and on unconditional submission to regulation of their lives. i.e. Plato’s Republic, and many current “constitutional republics.”

 

Collectivism: Supremacy of the State over the individual.

The community is no longer merely the sum of the total of the individuals. By addition of an imponderable element, The Collective gains life and an aim of itself. Aka “the cloak of tyranny.” The weapon of those who wish to kill the mind, thought and conscience, thus The Collective begets the “New Idol”, “the coldest of all monsters”, the State.

Its purpose is no longer to benefit its members; on the contrary, the Collective assumes that the sole natural function of each individual member is to serve the interest of the Collective Community.

The final goal is not the well being of the individual, but the well being of the Unified Collective, the State. Fascism, Communism, Socialism, Nazism etc. The Collective easily gained control where state religions were also hierarchical in structure, such as Italy and Germany where both Mussolini and Hitler received worship.

 

Socialism: Socialism is a Collectivist social system based on public “community” control of the means of production and distribution by a planning central authority.

Control is accomplished via legislation, regulation, decree, protectionism, favors, force, behavioral conditioning, status etc.

In this regard it is equal to communism.

But it differs from communism in so far as there is no equality of the portions allotted to each individual for his own consumption.

Marx, Lenin, Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, Mao etc. were all “socialists”. The distinctions in application arose as to the methods of executing Socialist control. Those that envisioned a rapid transformation applied acute violence, coercion, elimination and oppression;

whilst the Fabian Socialists applied, and continue to apply, steady infiltration into existing institutions of education, government, and media. i.e. United Kingdom and United States of America.

 

Communism: In simple terms, liberty is exchanged for “equality.”

The dialectic of materialism. Collectivism and Equality.

To accomplish this “equality”, the State appears in pronounced authoritarian role to take control of the means of education, production and distribution for the supposed welfare of the society on the road to some ill defined, yet advertised as “inevitable,” Utopia.

Karl Marx, like many Jews, hungered for political equality and social acceptance. Thus, his stated goals were to “dethrone God and destroy capitalism.” And level the field flat to a standardized mediocrity.

Precisely who is to coordinate the ‘will of the community’ or the ‘will of the people’; who is to distribute the goods; and on whose principles ‘equality’ is to be defined– has long plagued this ideology.

Alas, digital media, electronic learning, the use of computer adaptive software, embedded formative assessments, computer ‘gaming’, using artificial intelligence with embedded “logic” have now fulfilled the Dewey, Pavlov, Skinner, Vygotsky and Turchenko dreams of “teaching machines” to behaviorally condition the “community” members to their servitude to the Comintern, the Communist International, State. The goals of socialist, communist, and fascist regimes aim toward globalization.

Duty to Work: The communist rights include the ‘right to work’, which means the duty to work. To fulfill the needs of the collective, each member must fulfill their labor role. This duty to work is closely related to the “Right to Existence”. The right to existence must be justified by claiming one’s allotment of work. One’s mind, body and soul belong to the entire Collective and it is only the lack of 100 percent participation that has supposedly forestalled Utopia’s arrival.

 

Balkan joke: “What is the difference between Communism and Capitalism?”

Answer: “Communism is the exploitation of man by man.

In Capitalism it is the reverse.”

 

Fascism/ Prussianism: Liberty is exchanged for “prosperity.”

Collectivism and Capitalism.

Fascism removes the need for individuals to think. Confers simple tasks to “do” as commanded, with no responsibilities and restless busyness. Controls the intellectual diet, eliminates any reasoning and produces a religious worship of the fascist state.

Per Benito Mussolini:

“Fascism is a religious conception of life, in which Man is seen in his inherent relation to a higher law, to an objective will that transcends the individual and raises him to the consciousness of a spiritual community…

“According to its anti-individualist attitude the idea of Fascism is for the state, and for the individual insofar as he coincides with the state…since the state has changed in the consciousness and will of the people…Fascism affirms the state as the true reality of the individual. It is the only freedom which can seriously be considered—the freedom of the state, and of the individual within the state—because, for the Fascist, everything is in the state, and outside of the state nothing legal or spiritual can exist, or still less be of value. In this sense Fascism is totalitarianism, and the Fascist state is unity and synthesis of all values and gives the whole life of the people its meaning, development and forcefulness.”

This might as well be a catechism for communism except for who gets to determine the “objective will” of the Fascist state.

The Fascist/Prussians still want to hang on to the Capitalist incentive component; so representative government is replaced with: the Prussian Road to Capitalism: State control of Infrastructure, Education and Crony Protectionism. “Prosperity” is defined by material economic production, organization, and efficiency, regimented obedience to said goals of the state.

  1. Hierarchy- Appointment from the Top.

The supreme head of the state appoints a few big officials, each of whom appoints a great many smaller ones, and so down to the mayor, judge and county clerk…and every official is responsible not to the people whose affairs he administers but to the official who appointed him. “Just following orders, doing what I’m told.”

  1. Authority- government by Command from superior. The method of government decisions is by decree from superiors; subordinates have no vote, only unquestioning obedience.
  2. Fascist ‘Discipline’- Voluntary Obedience

Comprehensive Gleichschaltung

Fascist discipline involves a surrender of individual consciousness and devotion, without reserve, of every activity of body and mind to the collective will. This social- emotional conditioning means the complete voluntary adjustment of an individual to a group, the change from and independent human mind to an intellect capable of working in a group, through a group, and towards a goal not chosen individually but always common to the whole group community.

It comes perilously close to the concept of a Robot programmed for the collective will. For the Fascist the function of making up his mind has simply been formatted as reflexive via social engineering. Today this is being accomplished via adaptive computer software with ongoing embedded formative assessments. (see below for more on Digital media and E-learning, Behavioral and Cognitive Science)

 

Republican government: is that government in which the body, or only a part of the people, is possessed of the supreme power.

When the body of the people is possessed with the supreme power it is called a democracy;

When power is lodged only in the hands of a part of the people it is called an aristocracy.

Examples: Ancient Roman Republic; Peoples Republic of China, Federal Republic of Germany, United Soviet Socialist Republic, United States of America

 

Democracy: Rule by the body of people who have been granted suffrage to participate in or elect representatives to act on their behalf in the assemblies and institutions of government.

Rule by code of law (in constitutional government), which limits the powers of all, including the ruler.

Rights and freedoms of citizens stressed over those of rulers or the state.

Democracy has nothing to do with any economic point of view. It can logically exist in connection with socialism as with capitalism.

It is a system of representative self-government of a people, and its one and only axiom is that the community exists only to serve the interests of its members. Thus, as a political tool it is subject to the current perceived “interests” of the members. Compare the interests and outcomes of Revolutionary America and Revolutionary France. A Democracy can be as despotic in its oppression of the individual as can the Collective or the Czar.

This is precisely why the United States of America was founded as a democratic Constitutional Republic, to protect the God given rights of the individual.

 

Constitutionalism: Recognizing that human nature is fallen and that government is needed among men; recognizing that power tends to concentrate and corrupt those in power– a framework or restraint defining organization, purpose, duties and limits of government is required.

The United States Constitution is singular in the history of mankind. Aptly described by Abraham Lincoln as the “frame of silver” surrounding the Declaration of Independence, the “apple of gold.” Proverbs 25:11

“It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions….There are men, in all ages…who mean to govern well: but they mean to govern. They promise to be kind masters; but they mean to be masters…They think there need be but little restraint upon themselves….The love of power may sink too deep in their own hearts…” Daniel Webster

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly in adequate to the government of any other.” John Adams

One must ask, “What then has changed, the Constitution, or the people?” And if the people are no longer moral or religious could an immoral and unfaithful mass be entrusted to fashion any better Constitution exists?

 

Purpose of Education in America:

To prepare a moral and religious people for self-government.

The founders’ vision was never for labor force development.

 

Theocracy: God as King, Lawgiver, Judge and Redeemer. As much as the Isms wish to deny the reality of humanity and human nature, each individual is created for a relationship with their Creator. Why God should wish to do this is beyond our human comprehension, but it is the purpose for which we were created. From Genesis to Revelation, the Purpose is clear. God is to dwell, shacan, mishkan, tabernacle with man.

God’s Theocracy recognizes the sanctity of each individual life and each individual’s responsibility to God and his fellow human beings.

God’s Law came before the Jewish monarchy. The king, like any other man, was subject to God, His Law, His Priests and His Prophets.

 

Liberty: Individual liberty, physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual liberty requires the ability to discriminate between a set of moral absolutes of right and wrong, good and evil in thought, motive and behavior.

Liberty is not a state of domicile as in a fiefdom or freedom, but implies a choice of behavior, participation, action and the responsibility of each individual for the consequences of each decision. (Ezekiel 18)

There can be no “liberty” in a collectivist state.

 

Culture: Culture is the means by which we transmit knowledge, values and beliefs from one generation to the next.

 

Cybernetics: Machines governing men. Machines performing what human beings used to perform.

 

Behavioral Science/ Cognitive Science: The behavior modifies the neural system no less than the neural system directs the behavior. What one does modifies the brain and the behavior.

 

Logic, Adaptive Software, E-learning and Digital Media:

Behind biology is chemistry;

Behind chemistry is physics;

Behind physics is mathematics;

Behind mathematics is logic;

Behind Logic is God….

 

BUT with the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) with self-adapting algorithms; adaptive computer software—whoever writes the software program embeds the logic and assumes the role of “god” over those participating in the embedded formative assessments, computer gaming, digital media, educational “learning.” This was the dream of behavioral scientists such as Pavlov, B.F. Skinner; socialist philosophers like John Dewey and communist educators such as Vladimir Turchenko.

Ongoing embedded formative assessments/computer adaptive learning is now funded by American Taxpayers and used in public education across the USA. It is completely incompatible for a self-governing people, to be governed by machines. It is incomprehensible that machines would educate human beings. Which begs the question: What will these beings, be?

 

Charter Schools: A public school charter granted to a Charter Management Organization (CMO) by the state, which provides the CMO access to taxpayer funds in exchange for compliance with state and federal criteria. The public, taxpayer, parents, teachers and students are denied access to and authority over the Charter Management Organization board, as well as denied the oversight of educational content, personnel, purposes, testing, assessments, methods etc.

Parents seeking to escape a traditional public system, one that is no longer safe for minds, bodies or souls of children, are finding CMO’s another tragedy of government meddling in education.

(There are a few dozen admirable parent led charters…but these are the rare exceptions.)

 

“School Choice”: Another of those Double meaning phrases that gushes with curb appeal until…

  1. The term School Choice sounds like a no brainer. Who wouldn’t like a choice? Chocolate, Vanilla, Butter Pecan. The Naïve interpretation; the Marketing Propaganda, Public Opinion Pollster sound bite, sounds great to the harried masses. But just like its “choice” cousin in the abortion industry…Pro Choice, means to choose death to the baby—School Choice, implies, and invites death to the Liberty of Parental oversight in Education.

 

  1. The meaning and implications behind the Public Relations blitz of “School Choice” Propaganda.

“School Choice” means the use of taxpayer funds via vouchers, Education Savings Accounts (ESA), credits etc. to expand state and federal control over any form of educational institution or approved use that would participate in the receipt of the redistributed funds.

All taxpayer redistribution schemes whether via grants, vouchers, tax credits, tax deferment, favors, financial aid, scholarships etc. require adherence to a bureaucracy of state and Federally defined criteria, administrations, accountability, tracking, measureable outcomes, methods, content, processes, accreditation, licensing etc.

Expanding the access to monies via special legislated accounts follows the dangerous pattern of any account in which the “government” pretends the part of benevolent parent broker.

Consider the constraints, changing rules, lack of access, penalties, maintenance fees, etc. of 529 plans, HSA, FSA, IRAs, 401K plans etc. These accounts provide fertile ground for increased central planning, fraud, hacking, and opportunistic businesses to reap more taxpayer plunder, while encouraging global dependency in the cradle to grave welfare state.

Considering the effects of similar federal/state redistribution schemes in healthcare, health insurance, college-university financial aid; Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security Insurance, banking, finance and investment industries one can be certain that the results will include: hyperinflation of costs, rampant fraud and a proliferation of hungry beasts, “the eager entrepreneurs,” of services, books, media technologies, self acclaimed ‘experts’, advisors, investment funds brokers to devour the state/federal taxpayer subsidized dole.

These “Choice” accounts, credits, favors etc. will of course demand, yet another, layer of infrastructure, independent regulatory agencies, staffed with, yet more, bureaucrats and technocrats to regulate, adjudicate, define, administrate and execute the legally sanctioned plunder. Needless to say, the masses will get what they are manipulated to demand, particularly since they believe it is their own idea.

 

Classical “education” method:

Classical is an educational method known for training statesmen, leaders, clergy, intellectuals and self-governing laity.

The Classical method traces its popular origins to the Ancient Greek philosophers, notably Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. The method employs a master- sage(s) lecturing, facilitating discussion, debate and thoughtful rumination using the art of inquiry, rhetoric and logic. Each master had his own focus. Socrates mentored Plato and Xenophon etc.; Plato expanded to an Academy; Aristotle, who tutored Alexander the Great, founded his Lyceum.

Greek and Roman education of the elite included the mastering of the trivium: grammar, logic and rhetoric, before advancing to the quadrivium: astronomy, arithmetic, music and geometry. The content was not standardized and depended greatly on the knowledge of the particular master(s).

Rhetoric, the art of persuasion through spoken or written language was central to political life. Julius Caesar and Marcus Cicero both studied under Apollonius Molon of Rhodes, in order to advance their political careers. Rhetoric was central to persuading the masses, the military, the Senate, the slaves, the subjugated, the occupied and the allied. And still is.

Charlemagne resurrected the classical method in the late 8th and 9th centuries due to a lack of educated priests and scribes for the royal court. The 12th century again witnessed a renaissance of the classical art of debate combined with a growing demand for education, which led to the foundation of the first universities in the 12th and 13th centuries.

The rediscovery of ancient Greek and Latin texts during the later medieval period stimulated interest in classical learning and contributed to the artistic and cultural Renaissance of the 15th and 16th century.

Humanism, the key intellectual movement of the Renaissance also had its roots in classical education as the loose network of scholars attempted to reconcile the wisdom of the ancient Greeks and Romans with their Christian faith. They became known as “humanists” reflecting the degree to which they placed humankind, rather than God, at the center of their world-view.

This prepared the way for the Protestant Reformation, the Ages of Reason, Enlightenment, Rationalism, and the ongoing waves of Revolution. Thus, by the time Bastiat and Acton, had witnessed the effects of “classical education” on their nations and Europe at large, they urged extreme caution as to its content. Pointing out that it is a method, a form and like any other method or form the key factor is in precisely what is the content, and who is acting as Master mediating the meaning, shaping the logic, the principles and the purposes that will guide the rhetoric of their disciples.

Economic Chipmunks: How Americans Fell for Ism’s Central Planning

Economic Chipmunks: How Americans Fell for Ism’s Central Planning

“We cannot extend the mastery of government over the daily life of a people without somewhere making it master of the people’s souls and thoughts.

That is going on today. It is part of all regimentation. Even if the government conduct of business could give us the maximum of efficiency instead of least efficiency, it would be purchased at the cost of freedom.”

Herbert Hoover, The Crusade Years 1933-1955

  1. Lying in State.

Methods to control the exploding chipmunk population parallel those employed by central planners to trap citizens at large. The evolution from liberty embracing vigilant moral citizen to behaviorally conditioned fur ball, has nearly reached epic proportions.

In the past, snoopers had to search for concealed bait, clandestine connections, conspiracy theories, and such agendas…now the savory rewards are right out there in the open for all to shamelessly partake. Gobble quickly or be gobbled. It’s a race to see who can consume the most or be consumed in the systematic processing, aka Central Planning.

For chipmunks the bait is black oiler sunflower seeds floating atop and concealing enough depth of water in which to drown chippy in a 5-gallon bucket.

For conditioned politicians, city councils, school boards, citizens, businesses, labor, unions, bureaucrats, administrators, taxpayers, entitlement recipients, educators, healthcare, managers, non-profits, for profits, no-profits, etc. etc. the bait is cash for causes, grants for compliance, favors for fraud, incentives for infrastructure, reimbursements for data collection, “join the clause” but don’t read the fine print or what you’re competing for and what liberties it will cost you, your community, your family, your faith, your business, your fortune…or your future. Oh, that’s taken care of…you’ll be lying in state. The State that Works.

  1. Polls report:

“The Economy” is the number one concern for Government to Fix.”

Really?

When did it become “the Government’s” role to fix the economy?

Good grief chipmunks! How did you fall for this pail of….poop? Oh yes, about the same time the progressive educators, Woodrow Wilson, John Dewey and a host of Fabian Socialists invaded “higher education” to poison the seed and promote a path to….where was that trail supposed to lead anyway? Utopia was it? Who cares, chipmunks don’t ask where it leads, just to be fed…by the Feds. Now! Majority rule, democracy and all.

Wait a minute…..Democracy? Really? Since when are we a democracy? Oh yes, since that’s what they teach the little fur balls in the government schools. Little fur balls grow up to be big fur balls…who eat lots of seeds, consume lots of goods, easily conform and perform for accolades because that’s what they’ve been trained to do. Not think. They’ve no absoute knowledge to think with. Government ED has seen to that.

  1. Give them what they want.

So how do you catch a chipmunk? You give them what they want. Or what they’ve been conditioned to want.

Americans have been conditioned to believe “someone” else, The Government, will fix the economy, provide dole, employment, healthcare, food, retirement, entertainment, utilities, abort or babysit, educate, feed, counsel, and culture their children forever; assume all risks, appease, condone and promote their whims, wants, and wayward ways.

“Fascism works because the mindset of the people is such that they want it.”

E.B. Ashton, The Fascist, His State, His Mind 1937

https://dawnkazmierzak.net/2015/04/16/framework-for-fascism-usa-an-altered-state-of-mind-heartand-soul/

Americans asking The Government politicians to “fix the economy” are “Americans” asking for Central Planning, Totalitarian Economics. The Isms. 

It’s an oxymoron, it is UnAmerican.

How many times do we have to say to the chipmunks: “You can’t have the government controlling your economy without the government removing your personal liberties…your human personhood?”

  1. Every Child Achieves Act (ECAA) ie. Prussian Education in America….not again!

The joke of laborers under Communism continues to be:

“What’s the difference between Communism and Capitalism?”

The answer: “Communism is the exploitation of man by man…under Capitalism it is the reverse.”

That pretty much sums of Fascism: Education of a populace for a hierarchy of obedient utilitarian laborforce. No thinking required. Chipmunks will walk the assigned plank, in regimented high stepping fashion, while other chipmunks manage their seed, feed, and determine where and when they bleed.

Indiana is proposing the Clinton aligned NCEE (National Center on Education and The Economy) http://www.ncee.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/Executive-Summary.pdf

Prussian/ German style model of manufacturing children from compulsory daycare into three basic diplomas.

See how nicely the ECAA http://thefederalist.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/ECAA-Talking-Points.pdf

mates with the “Align, Engage, Advance” Strategic Career Council http://www.in.gov/icc/files/Indiana_Career_Council_Strategic_Plan_-_Align_Engage_Advance_-_FINAL.pdf showing up in nearly every state.

http://www.thenewamericanacademy.org/index.php/home/our-philosophy-menu/the-prussian-industrial-model

Some parents will continue to buy a diploma depending on how well connected they are, or how many sunflower seeds they can drop along the way into the higher Ed 529 plans etc.

http://www.iahe.net/blog/indiana-proposed-diploma-changes-may-affect-homeschoolers-201506

Proposed Choices of certified diplomas, determined at Kindergarten roundup are:

  1. Workforce Ready diploma …these will be the basic laborers ready to hop onto the conveyor belt, the folks that actually labor.
  2. College and Career Technical/ STEM pathway diploma. These will be the drones in cubbyholes (arranged like a calling center) staring at a screen coding, bitcoin mining, collecting and crunching metrics and designing more technology to bait, control and monitor the populace.

Share that with a naïve student (with parental permission) who gushes over their major of “Information Technology, Engineering, Medicine or Finance….”

Better yet, share a photo of an open concept room filled with hundreds of degreed STEM workers, Analysts, Medical Administrators, Medical metrics gatherers, Actuaries, Financiers etc. sitting in call room fashion, staring at monitors, connected to headphones,– dazed, hazed, frenzied and glazed.

https://dawnkazmierzak.net/2015/06/07/stem-ware-the-life-cycle-of-a-science-technology-engineering-mathematics-drone-or-worker-bee/

  1. Honors diploma. These get to be Bureaucrats, Administrators, Metrics Monger Managers in the layers of technocracy in the hierarchy of Ism’s insect authorities. Just how many folks can be “employed” managing other peoples’ lives is a black hole akin to another abyss. Recall that the least amount of care is given when spending other peoples’ resources on other people. Thus the compulsion driving the food chain as all must answer to those on Top…not those being managed like chattel, research pigs, or genetic resources.

Diplomas 1-3 will all be conditioned in the social, emotional, behavioral mantras of The Global State. http://www.casel.org/social-and-emotional-learning/core-competencies

https://dawnkazmierzak.net/2015/02/23/mind-warp-globalization-via-civics-gamification-the-formatting-of-marxist-minds-in-the-palms-of-hands/

(4. Diplomas of Wealth and Graft. These are not on the proposed public list)

These folks are groomed to run the show, and don’t learn on digital. Attend elite private schools, No Vulgar Core, No embedded formative assessments, no fraternizing with the peasants unless for bogus philanthropy ops)

They set the ideologies, not regurgitate them. There is little room at the top. These are by appointment or lineage only. These folks own the maze in the Globalization 101 Economy …or so they are indoctrinated to believe.

https://dawnkazmierzak.net/2015/02/09/the-mouse-trap-the-maze-mice-men-and-the-administrative-state/

* The Other diploma

  1. Isms at odds turning Purple. When Right merges Left, don’t hold your breath.

We’ve long recognized the Hilarious, yet consistent, agendas of the Left. The limited vocabulary, progressively morphing, but distinctively Dis. The principle gleaned has been:

If The Clintons and Company are for it…run the opposite direction.

But when the thesis and antithesis merge as one Global Unit, God-fearing citizens find themselves between a Rock, a rubble and a drowning pit.

Many on “the Right” appear to have embraced Fascism, assimilating to the Left as they continue in their adamant Socialism. Both parties appear bent on Central Planning, pandering to a Totalitarian Global Economy with Utilitarian German Imperialism as Kaiser.

What’s a country to do when its debt is not unlike Greece, and its people indoctrinated to believe The Government’s Keynesian Money Magicians could keep the Theme Park afloat?

  1. What’s a Chipmunk to do?

The interpretations of the G-7 Summit and emergency meetings hint at the obvious. “Debt ridden nations, you’ve been weighed in the scales and found wanting.” When the currency is fiat, and there is no actual value backing it up….when all the combined assets of a nation, the United States, are not enough to pay the debt of the nation (over $18,000,000,000,000. Trillion, actually over $200,000,000,000. In unfunded debt and liabilities) and this fiat value exists only in cyberspace of digital media…what’s a chipmunk to do?

Plan A :What any debtor family, state or nation has done in the past. Offer their people, their children, their citizens, their living assets, their human resources as indentured servants. Simultaneous with the continual fractional banking, quantitative easing, (printing more fiat currency) and “management” of “investor” resources in banks, mutual funds, index funds, bonds, stocks, annuities, trusts, blah, blah, blah the planks are burgeoning under the weight of chipmunks eager to be harvested.

  1. Plan B- Repent and reclaim Moral Foundations (The original Plan A….)

In 900 B.C. the nation of Judah was at the brink of attack from three surrounding nations that far outnumbered them (the Moabites, Ammonites and Meunites).

The first thing King Jehoshaphat did was to proclaim a fast, to confess personal and national sins and seek help from The LORD.

“For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us.

We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.”

2 Chronicles 20:12

King Jehoshaphat and “All the men of Judah, with their wives, and children and little ones, stood there before The LORD.” vs. 13

This reverence for and dependence on The LORD was a foundation that King Jehoshaphat had begun early in his reign. “In the third year of his reign he sent his officials…with the Levites…and the priests and they taught them the Book of the Law of The LORD; they went all around to all the towns of Judah and taught the people.” 2 Chronicles 17:3-9

You see, these people had a Godly foundation of what was right, wrong, good and evil. They knew upon Whom their lives, livelihood and security depended. And they knew That He could deliver them. Which He did. Upon receiving the news of their forthcoming deliverance from the Ammonites, Moabites and Meunites, “Jehoshaphat bowed down with his face to the ground, and all the people of Judah and Jerusalem fell down in worship before The LORD.”….the next morning, “As they began to sing and praise, The LORD set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated….they helped to destroy one another.”vs. 20:22-23

Do we think all of the chipmunks are going to do that? Not likely, yet. But those who do know God, need to embrace the admonition and the Truth of Who their God is and what He requires of them.

The Isms are not God.

The Isms will be routed into confusion and destroy one another. The question remains as to Whom will you and your heirs look? Are you a chipmunk or a Human Being, created in the Image of God?

What have you taught your children? To walk the plank and drown for the seeds? Or to Stand in Christ, knowing The Book, Its Author, and growing in faith, mind and muscles for the journey ahead.

 

* The Other diploma

There are still committed parents who have chosen to not place their heirs on the ergonomic path. These parents choose for their children to major in being Human beings.

** We use our buckets and seeds to feed the ducks…

Usury and You. Fiat Economics’ Finance, Funds, Fraud and Fallout: When Babel’s Bubbles Burst

Usury and You. Fiat Economics’ Finance, Funds, Fraud and Fallout: When Babel’s Bubbles Burst

“Do not charge your brother interest, whether on money or food or anything else that may earn interest. You may charge a foreigner interest, but not a brother Israelite,

so that The LORD your God may bless you in everything you put your hand to in the land you are entering to possess.”

Deuteronomy 23:19-20

 

“And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you?

Even ‘sinners’ lend to ‘sinners’, expecting to be repaid in full.

But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back.

Then your reward will be great, and you will be

sons of The Most High,

because He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.

Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.”

Jesus Christ, as recorded by Luke 6:34-36

Usury, the taking of interest on money lent, was regarded in Christian Europe as both a sin and a crime. Churchmen pointed to Christ’s teaching quoted above, as well as to the numerous Scriptures in the Old Testament, the Torah, the Tanakh and the New Testament against the sting of charging for the use of money or items borrowed; and against the oppressing and enslaving of one’s fellow countrymen.

Translations of the Hebrew and Chaldee roots of the words used for Usury, Debt, Creditor, Money-lender from Strong’s Dictionary (5377,5383,5391,5392) include: naw-shaw’, naw-shak’, neh’-shek which mean:

to lead astray, beguile, seduce, deceive greatly; creditor, exact, extortioner, lend, usury; to strike with a sting as a serpent; to oppress with interest on a loan;–bite, lend upon usury; interest on a debt: usury.

The Bite of Usury:

Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) in his epic allegory The Divine Comedy addresses the horrendous sins of usury when Virgil is explaining the structure of lower Hell. Virgil states the punishment of those practicing violence, fraud, and treachery.

“Since fraud’s a sin peculiar to mankind, God hates it more; and so the fraudulent sink further down…Now fraud—which bites at every conscience—can be used on one who puts his faith in you or one who pockets no such confidence. (Canto eleven)

As they are wrapping up this didactic time at the edge of lower Hell, Dante asks Virgil for clarification:

“Could you go back a little, though,” said I, “when you said usury’s an offense against God’s bounty? There’s a riddle to untie.”

(Virgil replies)

“Whoever understands philosophy and heeds it, notes, not in one place alone, how Nature takes her course,” he said to me,

“From Intellect Divine and from its art, and in your Physics*, if you gloss it well,

you’ll find, not many pages from the start, That your art strives to follow, as it may, Nature—- you are the pupil, she the teacher.

So we might say that human industry Is the grandchild of God. From these two things—

Remember the first part of Genesis— Man must derive his life and his advance,

And since the usurer takes a different path,

Setting his hope in something else, he sins,

Despising Nature and her follower.” (Inferno, Canto eleven)

From The Beginning Man, woman, mankind was to depend on God. From Genesis man was to be in relationship with God. Particularly after The Fall, man was to derive his provision from his labors and man’s recognition of his dependence on God to bless his efforts and to look forward to his forthcoming redemption: man’s liberty in Christ.

God modeled in Creation the Sabbath rest, and clarified explicitly on Mount Sinai the directive of “six days you shall labor and on the seventh day you shall rest”. Shabbat: rest, cease from labor, desist. The Shabbat is not just that man needs rest, but that man must recognize his dependence on God for provision and for salvation. This again was emphasized in the command that the The Land was to rest the seventh year. The Shemittah, The Sabbatical Year.

“But in the seventh year the land is to have a Sabbath of rest, a Sabbath to the LORD. Do not sow your fields, or prune your vineyards. Do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the grapes of your untended vines. The land is to have a year of rest.”

Leviticus 25:4

By leaving the fields untended and unguarded the Jew was to demonstrate it was God’s power over nature that supplied his bounty and that true life comes when man stops striving for material gain in favor of dedication to spiritual growth. Slaves were also set free, and kinsman redeemed.

Laborers in the Global economy no longer acknowledge a Sabbath. Most businesses are open 7 days a week, 365 days per year, and many boast 24-hour access. Multitudes of workers are enslaved to schedules including twelve hour shifts, shifting workdays, rotating weekends and overwhelming demands to processes and metrics gathering for central planners, which leave them dazed, hazed, glazed and in constant state of disconnected limbo. Most of healthcare, hospitality, food service, manufacturing, transportation, first responders etc. fall under these inhumane demands. No rest for the weary, when the wicked hold the whip.

Even greater slavery for the countless billions shackled under in sweat houses turning out mass junk for mass consumerism for the mass marketers and box stores. Every American in “the Market” via whatever funds or accounts, likely has their hand on these whips, although distance, mass participation, and mass ignorance attempt to assuage guilty consciences.

The Year of Jubilee, Jovel.

“Count off seven Sabbaths of years— seven times seven years—so that the seven Sabbaths of years amount to a period of forty nine years. Then have the trumpet sounded everywhere… Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; each one of you is to return to his family property and each to his own clan. …do not sow…do not reap….Do not take advantage of each other, but fear your God.” Leviticus 25:8

https://dawnkazmierzak.net/2014/05/27/jubilee-or-captivity-you-decide/

The Jubilee laws bring home the truth that the land and liberty are Divine Gifts and that ownership reverts to those whom He wills it. If folks realize this it will help them refrain from cheating, usury, fraud, stealing as they reflect on Who owns the Land. By counting the years the nation(s) are constantly reminded of this.

When Capitalism Catalyzes Nimrod’s Rebellion

Shortly after the deluge, there arose Nimrod, a builder of cities, towers and enslaver of men. On the planes of Shinar, men sought to defy God. Men still seek to defy God. Capitalism under the yoke of Globalization has metamorphed to fraud, to deceive, shackle, enslave, oppress, and crush mankind who has blindly fallen under its yoke of false security.

Throughout the millenia from The Garden, Towers of Babel have been fashioned euphemistically offering men “security” or “securities” in exchange for Liberty under God.

Nimrod’s Fascist Collective speeds hastily to the abyss via mortgages, retirement plans, mutual funds, 401K, College 529’s, stocks, bonds, annuities, trusts, securities, FSA’s, HSA’s blah, blah, blah, all feeding a self-propelling compulsion loop of mutual oppression.https://dawnkazmierzak.net/2014/06/26/little-red-beware-of-whom-you-let-hold-your-goodie-baskets/

Nearly all publicly traded investment vehicles create more oppression over the very same investors who fund and often labor in these globalized companies. Each investor and fund manager, trader, technocrat, administrator, analyst demands greater returns in the fiat economy based largely on deceiving others to purchase it. Or intimidation of penalties for “early” withdrawal from The Market accounts.

This is an oppression no less real than the slave trafficking, the indentured servitude, the putting up of children for collateral that has been practiced and condemned throughout millennia of history.

This is the very Usury in which God prohibited the Jews from participating and which Jesus also taught against. This is also why God commanded The Sabbath, Shemittah and Jubilee.

The Jews, like Shakespeare’s Shylock, in The Merchant of Venice have gotten a bad rap over this.

If one connects the links between the Rothschilds, European Banking moguls, Schiff, Rockefellers, Carnegies, Harrimans, Woodrow Wilson, WWI and WWII and the Federal Reserve System, fractional banking, the European Market, International Monetary Fund etc. with the current EU and potential Grexit consequences coupled with The United States’ unquenchable debt expansion, one can recognize that it is not only a Jewish stereotype– but that Christians too, have built their share of Nimrod’s Trade Towers.

“In reality, the laws on usury were observed in the breach, Christian bankers could conceal high interest rates by not recording the sums borrowed, only those repaid. Jewish moneylenders probably drew the greatest opprobrium because they concentrated on petty loans. Hypocrisy, and a measure of animosity were perhaps inevitable…. Even so, the prominent role of Jews in European credit and banking is a fact of history.” Norman Davies on Usury in Europe, A History.

An interesting twist of this self-inflicted demise–that of exchanging God’s provision for that of Crony Capitalist’s Central Planners of fraudulent “security”, is that the Qur’an is also adamantly opposed to Usury. Which fits in the equation of proclaimed jihad against the infidels, Jews and Christians, quite clearly.

The Jews, who rejected the Theocracy in 1095 B.C., and stopped practicing Shemittah, the Sabbatical rest of the land, went into Babylonian Captivity in 605 B.C. as a consequence of their disregard for God’s laws. They were captive for 70 years, one year for each of the Shemittah rests they had failed to observe. Cyrus of Persia, as foretold in Scripture, permitted their return to Israel after he conquered the Babylonians in 536 B.C.

In 445 B.C. Nehemiah led a group of Jews from Babylon (Persia) back to Jerusalem. He was appalled to see what fellow Jews were doing to fellow Jews. Folks were starving for grain; they were mortgaging their fields, vineyards and homes to get food; and had to borrow money to pay the king’s tax on their fields and vineyards.

“Although we are the same flesh and blood as our countrymen and though our sons are as good as theirs, yet we have to subject our sons and daughters to slavery. Some of our daughters have already been enslaved, but we are powerless, because our fields and our vineyards belong to others.”

When I heard their outcry and these charges, I was very angry. I pondered them in my mind and then accused the nobles and officials. I told them, “You are exacting usury from your own countrymen!”

So I called together a large meeting to deal with them….I continued, “what you are doing is not right. Shouldn’t you walk in the fear of our God …? …Let the exacting of usury stop! Give back to them immediately their fields, vineyards, olive groves and houses and also the usury you are charging them—the hundredth part of the money, grain, new wine and oil. “Nehemiah 5

Just as God used the Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Vikings, Magyars, Moguls and Turks to accomplish His purposes to draw mankind to dependence on Him,— perhaps He is permitting this current scourge of unfathomable brutality to awaken the slumbering before the gates of t’shuvah **(repentance) close.

The Lord will have His Shemittah. He will settle accounts with those rebellious to His Sovereignty.

If you’re involved in Usury, in the markets, funds of fraud, stocks, fiat currency accounts best prepare for reality and for dependence in Whom dependence is due.

“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.”

Luke 6: 36

Merciful, “rakh-oom”, full of compassion, love, mercy

There is nothing merciful about usury, debt, fraud funds, global markets or the oppression of others via the pooling of monies for said “capitalism.”

 

**T’shuvah, repentance, has the basic meaning of “return” or “come back.” One who does t’shuva is on who, after going astray, returns or comes back to the right path.

Americans Under Compulsion: PQRS…T-4, Hitler’s Healthcare

Americans Under Compulsion: PQRS…T-4, Hitler’s Healthcare

“Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give,

not reluctantly or under compulsion,

for God loves a cheerful giver.”

2 Corinthians 9:7

Merely a generation ago, folks entered the practice of medicine, or allied healthcare professions, out of a genuine sense of compassion; a desire to sow generously into the lives of others. But the sower of weeds and grafter of STEMS implanted bogus humanitarianism, laced with operant conditioning of fiat rewards, into the fields of transcendent grace and hope. Compassion has been supplanted by compulsion.

Welcome to O’Fascist-care facilitated by the ergotrons of data mongering; the technocracy integrated with psychology’s operant conditioning playing upon neurochemical compulsion loops of the brain’s reward center. (Nucleus accumbens)

Compulsion: An irresistible urge to perform some act without rational purpose.”

That definition, in and of itself, pretty much sums up the entire American lifestyle. At least Skinner’s rats were searching for cheese. American’s don’t even know why they are in such a hurry to scurry through the maze.

The Greek roots (agkale’, agkos, anagkastos, anagke) which linguistic scholars have translated as compulsion, provides the graphic of “twisting or bending of the arm, constrained, coerced, in bonds.” Something is compelling these beings onward over the cliff.

In what used to be “healthcare” that “something”, that tool of Skinner’s Operant Conditioning for rewards, that scent of cheese, is the Federal Government and Third party payers of “healthcare” reimbursements.

The Federal Government has long had its hands, graft, whips and chains over healthcare education, licensing and delivery. In fact, it was the Federal Government’s entitlement schemes that drove the costs of healthcare delivery off the charts. https://dawnkazmierzak.net/2014/03/17/sanctioned-travesty-connecting-the-dots-to-reality/ Create a crisis, then swoop in to create dependence. (impress, indoctrinate, intimidate: Isms 101)

  1. Data for Dollars. PQRS, Physician Quality Reporting System

Using information technology to catalyze collective dependence and social engineering is nothing new. The Babylonians, Jews, Chinese, and Romans conducted censere, or ‘estimates’ of their population numbers for taxes, tribute, dole and military force.

Hitler did this with the help of IBM, for the Nazi’s T-4 elimination, eugenics, research and euthanasia programs and pogroms.

The United States compiled information databases for social engineering in the Eugenics Record Office (ERO), founded in 1904 at Cold Spring Harbor, New York by eugenicist, biologist, mathematician Harry Laughlin, funded by the Rockefellers, Carnegies, Harrimans etc. https://dawnkazmierzak.net/2014/07/17/double-trouble-a-tale-of-two-republics-eugenics-genetics-and-history-repeating/

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ushered in a toxic flood of operant conditioning, incentives for building information infrastructure, Electronic Healthcare Records, Registries, Federal Education curriculum and databases etc. breeding and feeding a host of saprophytic technology industries that would collect, feast, fabricate and integrate “information” to basically run the nation’s people ragged. http://www.hitechanswers.net/about/about-arra/

These competitions for cash were initiated under the guise of ‘Economic Recovery’; which was never the purpose of The Government anyway. (You can’t have totalitarian economics and have personal freedom.) Totalitarian economics means life under compulsion and the loss of humanity. https://dawnkazmierzak.net/2015/01/12/what-americans-still-need-to-know-from-the-man-who-crusaded-against-the-current-collectivism/

Under the PQRS Physician Quality Reporting System, physician practices, clinics, hospitals, rehab facilities etc. are incentivized by higher reimbursements for collecting more data and reporting this data to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Those doctors and facilities that don’t play the PQRS game are penalized up to 6% for non-compliance in reporting patient information and procedures.

This coercion occurs under the propaganda that somehow this data registry will improve patient care. As if your grandma is exactly like someone else’s octogenarian grandma to perform a scientific based comparison anyway. (You see what happens to scientific method when the higher ed, research, pharmaceutical and medical technology dollars are government/crony funded?) This is why if you take your grandma to the ER or the internist, the chiropractor, the therapist or even the Optometrist, they’ll be asking unrelated questions like: “Has grandma had her pertussis vaccination? What political party does grandma identify with?…Has grandma ever had chicken pox?….Is grandma pregnant? What kind of birth control does grandma employ? What ethnicity is grandma?” (she’s laying on the gurney….septic)

  1. Doctors in a World of Hurt.

Speeding through the ER, (you know it’s all clocked now, so they can post it on the Interstate signs: “6 minutes to ER doc,….be out in time for fast food and the early matinee..”) they must assign a diagnosis code (ICD-10) in race to the top time, so that they can assign a discharge date. No bed remains unused or more staff present than warranted by ratios of bodies in beds. No matter the level of illness of the patient, it’s a body. As soon as a patient is admitted to the hospital the social worker is already researching and reserving beds in rehab facilities. Like the game of hot potato, there are fewer beds than patients, and far fewer staff to care for patients.

By the way, no one looks at bodies anymore.

Back in the old days of healthcare there was the S.O.A.P. format: Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan. “Stop, Listen and Look”.

You asked the patient their history, why they were there, what ailed them, what happened to initiate their visit. You reviewed their drug history, their allergies to medications, (Subjective) their vital signs, and looked at their body. (Objective) Assessed this information, discussed it with the patient, (oh yes, it is their body) answered questions, provided options, education and developed a Plan as to how to best meet this unique individual’s healthcare goals. You also considered cost. After all, the patient was responsible to pay for this or that testing, scan, lab, drug, therapy, surgery, device, implant etc.

Ahhh, that does precipitate another factor in the O’Fascist-care frenzy. Pharmaceutical and equipment vendors sponsor and pay for Doctor, nurse, therapist, assistant, technician healthcare Continuing Education. How convenient is that? Make a drug, device, or product and then educate the doctors, nurses, physician assistants, technicians to prescribe your drug and link with insurance companies for payment schedules and “approved” drug lists. Provide “free” samples, waiting room brochures, pens, magnets, cups, lunches and pre-printed prescription pads and coupons to promote drug ware.

  1. Time’s Up, On-line and Over time….losing patience with patients….

Doctors, nurses, physician assistants, technicians, therapists etc. in a world of hurt are now forced to enter reams of data in the Electronic Healthcare Records, Insurance claims, Reporting and Registry databases. They also must go through terabytes of data each day as labs, scans, consults, pharmacies, insurance claims, social services, therapists, assistants, nurses, managers, software glitches, claim rejects, patients, patient family members and The Government’s O’Fascist-care system demand their review, approval, interpretation, action and entry into the patient Electronic Health Record notes. And they must swear verification that all this information in said record is accurate and true.

EACH DAY a doctor receives literally hundreds of “TASKS” to perform regarding “information” via the data maker. These medical professionals are under compulsion to review, ruminate, correlate, research, sort, assess, dialog, communicate and formulate a plan as to how the data affects this particular patient times hundreds. In addition to this never-ending data stream these doctors are usually “seeing” over 30 patients a day. (They too, have quotas to meet like any factory worker.) Each of these patient encounters will produce yet more “TASKS” on the transistorized tormentor.

Obviously, there is not enough time to humanly accomplish these demands. So, something of the SOAP must fall by the wayside. Skipping the subjective history and the objective examination of the body….this leads to the default of an Assessment based on Assumption and a “plan” that includes : REFER OUT. Thus, the patient moves along the accelerating conveyor belt on to Specialist-land.

More codes, more tests, more interventions, more confusion, more cost, less communication and sadly more induced trauma. At this level the healthcare teams largely seem to have overlooked the fact that testing, scans, CT contrast dyes, catheters, biopsies, sensory overload, infusions, big gun drugs, narcotics, this study and that intervention, all induce their own trauma on the already traumatized patient. As the tower moves higher up, the specialists become more narrowly defined in their realms of expertise and less likely to look at the entire patient’s body or hear or review their entire history. Instead they too, often crave more data.

  1. Living on the Edge.

The definition of Trauma is: being in a state of overwhelm and not being able to flee from it. When demands exceed the person’s abilities to successfully accomplish their TASKS, the human being reverts into their limbic system. This is the emotional midbrain, the fight, fright or flight, reflexive survival oriented habits. Limbic comes from the Latin root, limbus…the edge….limbo.

Limbo, or the limbic system is not where you want your healthcare team to be. This is not thinking in the higher cortical areas of the brain or accessing the executive function of thoughtful integration. It takes time to focus, perceive, gather accurate information, systematically compare, contrast, analyze, elaborate, hypothesize, and communicate. No one can do this well under compulsion and coercion of computer screens, monitors, codes for cash, cash for dash, dings, dongs, bells, smart phones and unrealistic demands to interrogate, record, and stuff a national database full of metrics information under threat of reimbursement, life, livelihood, degrees, perjury, lawsuit and death.

  1. Doc in a Box, Vending Machine Medicine…just google it.

Just as Federal intervention disabled parents from the educating their children, the Fed Led O’Fascist-care, has disabled doctors from caring for their patients. That was their intent. Data for dollars will replace healthcare practitioners just as Data for dollars has replaced classroom educators in government schools. Data is not knowledge nor is it wisdom. But data, bogus or not, does provide lots of fodder for the technology folly to manage mass men with machine medicine.

Doc in a Box

  1. Place your hand on the screen, as it takes your vital signs, or connect your fit bit bracelet to the USB port;
  2. Enter your I.D. number or demographics, age, gender, ethnicity, and political party, education level. Your bank account will be charged per determination of your worth to The STATE
  3. Check a box of symptoms
  4. Current pharmaceutical prescriptions will already be accessed via pharmaceutical links; allergic reactions? Too bad.
  5. Push “DIAGNOSE”
  6. Receive Diagnosis Code
  7. Pills will be delivered via Drone.

Pills may be SOMA, secobarbital, pentobarbital or whatever the Fed Led Med technocracy determines as cost benefit ratio favorable to The State.

Just think of the saved revenue! Doc in a Box, eliminates the doctor, nurse, receptionist, pharmacist, drug rep, insurance clerk, actuaries, social workers, therapists, aides, technicians, maintenance and dietary staff and perhaps, even the patient.

  1. Haitian Healthcare: Faith, Family, Food, Friends and Future

We used to joke about Haitian Healthcare. In Haiti, if one gets put in a hospital, one must have a family member come and take care of the patient, bring food, water, bedding, and often go searching for drugs on the open market.

Today in America, we must learn from our island neighbors, not living under compulsion. We too, must have a family member with our loved one in the hospital. While the hospital staff is so busy entering data, so under staffed due to ratios, quotas, and cronyism, so specialized and so in a hurry, a family member must be present to look, listen, communicate, advocate and feed the patient. The food in the hospitals is processed byproducts full of glutamic acid, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, hydrogenated oils, malto dextrins, emulsifiers, whey, preservatives, dyes, artificial sweeteners, reconstituted chemicals…items you’d not eat if you were well, let alone sick. So, be certain to bring your own food, vitamins, real butter, real water and real yogurt, particularly if on antibiotics.

Goes back to the basics. Family, Faith, Food, Friends and look to the Future. The Haitians have always had their social security plan. Perhaps we ought to recognize the transcendence of it. If Haitians have enough children and nurture them well, perhaps their children will take care of them in their old age. Better to nurture your seed rather than to kill, consume or leave it enslaved by compulsions.

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you,

so that in all things at all times,

having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

As it is written:

‘He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor;

His righteousness endures forever.’

Now He Who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.”

2 Corinthians 9:8-10

Must say there is more need than ever for volunteers at hospitals to fill in support roles for those lacking family and friends and for helping to ease the pain, confusion, trauma of a system bent on dehumanizing humans in the race of dollars for data.

Pray for those in every aspect of healthcare and align with those now retired from healthcare. These seasoned professionals still possessing the knowledge, compassion, liberty and the seeds to keep planting, caring, and healing despite technocracy’s poison pills.

Your life may very well depend on it. 

You too, may be visiting Haiti or the free clinic for your healthcare….as many of these retired healthcare geniuses have taken to delivering their acts of mercy in mission clinics unencumbered by the technocracy.
