To Fight for Freedom, or to Fight for Empire — That is the Question

To Fight for Freedom, or to Fight for Empire — That is the Question 86

“Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.” — Frederick Douglass

So you’ve answered Shakespeare’s question: to be or not to be? What’s next? I hate to break it to you; it only gets harder. Now you must answer an even more daunting question: fight for freedom or fight for empire?

It’s a theme that has haunted the human condition since time immemorial. Indeed, a most intimidating mytheme that has both undermined and propelled the evolution of our species at different times in the overall human leitmotif.

On the one side is Empire: chock-full of status quo junkies and conditioned masses (brainwashed citizens), sycophantic police and military members who blindly obey a corrupt chain of command (storm troopers), and a power-tripping leadership whose power has become so absolute that it can be nothing short of absolutely corrupt (Emperor Palpatine/Darth Vader).

On the other side is Freedom: Free men and women questioning and resisting authority to the nth degree (the rebel alliance/Yoda).

Unfortunately, as it stands in our world, the odds are grotesquely in favor of Empire, and the rebels face a daunting, if not impossible challenge: Free the unfree while somehow remaining free within a militarized police state that upholds an ominous, globalized empire hell-bent on raping and plundering the planet to keep the rich in power and the poor in squalor.

For Neo, in the movie The Matrix, the choice is incredibly clear: Freedom. He would rather the pain that comes from the truth of the Desert of the Real, than the ominous lie that is the Matrix. But the choice is also very clear for Cypher: Empire.

As he insouciantly put it, “Why, oh why, didn’t I choose the blue pill?”

Cypher gives up, cowardly deciding ignorance is bliss, forfeiting truth. Neo rises up, courageously deciding knowledge is pain, but so rewarding that it’s worth it.

Similarly, in the movie Avatar, the choice is beyond clear to Jake Sully: Freedom. Get busy remaining a crippled victim of an ego-centric, oppressive, over-reaching military or get busy becoming an interdependent hero with eco-centric morals and universal empathy and compassion?

But the choice is also very clear for Colonel Miles Quaritch: Empire. He believes so blindly in the military code that his own loyalty and ego-centrism blinds him to the sheer magnitude of his immoral, uncompassionate, mass-destructive, murderous, and ecocidal rampage of a peaceful people and an interdependent cosmos.

Likewise in the movie Divergent, the choice is clear to Tris Prior: Freedom. She perfects a balance with Abnegation (selflessness), Amity (peacefulness), Candor (honesty), Dauntlessness (bravery), and Erudition (intelligence), in order to leverage freedom into an otherwise unfree system of human governance.

But the choice is also clear for the ominous Erudite leader Jeanine Mathews: Empire. She is thoroughly convinced that oppressive divisiveness is the only way to maintain order, not realizing that her blind obedience is at the cost of truth itself.

I could go on and on. There are countless examples throughout human history and within human literature showcasing precisely this same reoccurring theme: fight for freedom, or fight for empire?

It’s a choice no one else can make for us. Indeed, even giving up our choice to an authority is itself a choice. We alone are responsible for how we answer this most daunting, but most powerful, question.

The good thing is, the majority of us understand the now cliché phrase: “with great power comes great responsibility.” The bad thing is, although we understand it, we have been overwhelmingly negligent of it. Let’s break it down as it applies to us, and the state of the world today.

The Fight for Empire (Plutocratic Tyranny)

“No act of rebellion can be effective, much less moral, unless it first takes into account reality, no matter how bleak that reality.” – Chris Hedges

As it stands, we are not free. The reality of our current system of human governance is bleak indeed.

Nobody who lives in a society whose citizens are subject to constant surveillance, indefinite detention, systematic debt slavery, whose courts legalize the crimes of the state, and whose prisons profit off the petty crimes of its people, can be described as free.

Such a society is nothing less than totalitarian in nature, as corruption and tyrannical hierarchies plague it to no end.

It is a society based upon moneyed-masters and debt-slaves. A culture of greedy, power-hungry, warmongering, exploitative rulers with a bloated and violent military industrial complex backing it up, and an ignorant, traumatized, and immobilized populous with no recourse.

The very notion of wealth itself becomes equal parts illusion and yoke for the conditioned masses who, paraphrasing Noam Chomsky, “don’t even know what’s happening, and don’t even know that they don’t know.”

The yoke “jerks” the herd of brainwashed conformists this way and that, using divisive bipartisan political propaganda, homogenized by corporations with a stranglehold on power, to keep its sheeple oppressed and bleating for more authority.

The disaster situation before us is the height of a conquer-control-exploit-destroy-pollute-repeat process that has been plaguing humankind for a millennia. It is the culmination of a systematic erosion and methodical obliteration of our basic human and constitutional rights.

Like the good folks at Sustainable Man said:

“Every empire that has ever existed can point to over-exploitation of resources as the root cause of their demise. The difference between empires of the past and those of today is that we are now exhausting the entire planet at once.

“Empires of the past could rise and fall and their impact would be limited to a small geographic region. This is no longer true. Today, we live in an exponential economic growth paradigm which sees no limits.”

But limit it we must, lest we perpetuate a fundamentally unhealthy, unsustainable, unequal, and unjust system of plunder.

A clear sign of empire is an ill-informed citizenry that cannot take self-corrective measures because it is denied access to the truth and spoon fed lies by an unchallenged elite. The pathology of the plutocratic corporate elite is unprecedented.

It is a rampant illness infecting the core values of the greedy, overreaching powers that be. Power has become corrupt and will surely become absolute if those who fight for freedom don’t have the moral courage to stand up to empire.

Like Gandhi said:

“Nonviolence does not mean meek submission to the will of the evil-doer. It means the pitting of one’s whole soul against the will of the tyrant. Working under this law of our being, it is possible for a single individual to defy the whole might of an unjust empire to save his honor, his spirituality, his soul and lay the foundation for that empire’s fall… or its regeneration.”

The Fight for Freedom (Democratic Anarchy)

“Once I thought that to be human was the highest aim a man could have, but I see now that it was meant to destroy me. Today I am proud to say that I am inhuman, that I belong not to men and governments, that I have nothing to do with creeds and principles. I have nothing to do with the creaking machinery of humanity – I belong to the earth!” – Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer

The fight for freedom is a fight for non-violent (but ruthless and robust) anarchy: a healthy eco-centric, egalitarian balance between nature and the human soul.

It is a fight to create something new: a peaceful, courage-based, relationship-based lifestyle that has the power to trump the violent, fear-based, ownership-based lifestyle that is currently plaguing the human condition.

When 90% of the casualties of war are unarmed civilians, and a third of them children; Empire’s time has come. Its tyrannical reign must be met with ruthless anarchic civil-disobedience.

When corporations in power have the authority to pick and choose where wars will be waged in order to keep the oil flowing and the greenbacks stacked against an oppressed citizenry that has been tricked into believing fractional reserve banking is okay and war is an honorable thing: Empire’s time has come. Its reign must be met with peaceful insurgency and non-violent aggression.

War is not honorable. It is first degree cowardice. No amount of physical courage displayed in a warzone can match the moral courage displayed in rebelling against the immorality of war, especially within a violent culture that has been duped into believing that war is honorable and necessary to maintain peace.

War is not peace, no matter how much a corrupt authority preaches it or a sycophantic citizenry reveres it as necessary.

Freedom is not slavery, no matter how much illusory debt a kowtowing citizenry, slaving away at thankless jobs, ignorantly attempts to pay back (debt-slavery); not realizing that it is a debt that can never be paid off.

Ignorance is not strength, no matter how much political claptrap and divisive propaganda keeps the conditioned and brainwashed masses ill-informed and anti-intellectual.

So we have a critical decision to make. Each one of us. Fight for freedom, or fight for empire. There is no wiggle room here. Red-pill Neo or blue-pill Cypher? Rebellious Han Solo or chain-of-command-following Storm Trooper?

Eco-centric Jake Sully or ego-centric Colonel Quaritch. Courageous divergence or cowardice compliance? Compassionate human being or mindless zombie? The choice is yours to make, and yours alone, and nothing short of a healthy and robust progressive human evolution is at stake.

“The rebel, possessed by inner demons and angels, is driven by vision. I do not know if the new revolutionary wave and the rebels produced by it will succeed. But I do know that without these rebels, we are doomed.” – Chris Hedges

Conspiracy Theories

Juno probe recorded a radio signal source in orbit of Jupiter which may be an ancient interplanetary station

Juno probe recorded a radio signal source in orbit of Jupiter which may be an ancient interplanetary station 99
© Louis, CK, Louarn, P., Allegrini, F., Kurth, WS, & Szalay, JR (2020)

Juno, is NASA’s unmanned interplanetary station launched on August 5, 2011 to explore Jupiter, the second project under the New Frontiers program. The spacecraft entered the polar orbit of the gas giant on July 5, 2016. The purpose of the mission was to study the gravitational and magnetic fields of Jupiter, as well as to test the hypothesis that Jupiter has a solid core.

Instruments of the Juno interplanetary probe, which is exploring Jupiter, detected a nearby signal at a frequency of about 6.5 megahertz, which is in the range of high-frequency radio waves. On Earth, they are used for ionospheric communications and over-the-horizon radar, but in Jupiter’s orbit, their source is supposedly natural.

Such signals have been known for a long time: they are called decametric radio emission. However, for the first time, a spacecraft recorded them in the immediate vicinity of the place of origin. In fact, the probe flew through the source of the radio burst, near Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon.

Juno’s sensors observed the phenomenon for about five seconds, and then it merged with the background radiation. Given the speed of the probe – about 50 kilometers per second – we can conclude that the area of ​​space where the signal is generated is about 250 kilometers across.

As NASA explains, the found radio emission with a frequency of 10-40 MHz creates a stream of electrons rotating in Jupiter’s magnetic field. They generate a radio signal as a result of a process of a certain cyclotron maser instability. 

NASA was so terribly interested in this cyclotron instability that the Juno mission was decided to be extended indefinitely, and now the bright adepts are busy building a new ship, the money for which they managed to get in a record short time.

The intrigue is that the conspiracy theorists knew about this radiation back in October 2020, although NASA only spoke about it now. The story began there with the appearance of the following message on one of the network boards:

Juno probe recorded a radio signal source in orbit of Jupiter which may be an ancient interplanetary station 100

According to this modest text, it was written as if by a CIA officer who went on the run in the fall of 2020. The reason for this was the cleansing of a team of agents who cleared and hid information about the discovery in orbit of Ganymede of an object similar to an interplanetary space station, created using some advanced technology. 

It was opened by the same “Juno”, which on June 6, 2020 discovered a strange radio signal, which NASA reports only now. The signal was very powerful and went in a narrow beam, which does not happen in nature, so the satellite was slowed down and at the next revolution turned to look – where is the beam coming from? 

The signal came from an object in the form of a torus, inside which a sphere about 1000 feet in diameter was suspended. The sphere was of a substance resembling metal, glowing with a purple light with a green tint, and rotating clockwise. In this case, the torus rotated in the opposite direction. It also looked like the sphere had been damaged by some kind of internal explosion. Nobody had any idea what it was, and it was thought that this was the work of the proto-civilization of the Earth, which was trying to colonize Jupiter. The version of the object’s alien origin was also considered. 

When people read it in October, everyone laughed merrily. However, when NASA revealed the discovery of something on Ganymede, everyone suddenly realized that the message seemed to be pure truth and therefore now, in order to hush up the information, NASA urgently released its legend of what was happening.

Peruvian court names Gates, Soros and Rockefeller as “creators” of the COVID-19 pandemic

Peruvian judges said the coronavirus pandemic was organized by “authors of a new world order”, including Microsoft founder Bill Gates, investment banker George Soros, and members of the Rockefeller family of billionaires. Such a verdict was issued when considering an appeal to extend the detention of a local resident accused of rape.

Judges Tito Gallegos, Luis Legia and Tony Changaray were the authors of the controversial ruling. They explained that the coronavirus pandemic turned out to be force majeure, since no one, except for the “organizers” of the pandemic named by them, could predict its consequences.

“The criminal process was paralyzed due to the COVID-19 pandemic created by the criminal elites, which paralyzed activities in almost all countries … No world government, individuals and legal entities, nor the defense of the accused can claim that this pandemic can be called ‘predictable’, except for the creators of the new world order, such as Bill Gate, Soros, Rockefeller, etc., who ruled it. They continue to manage it in conditions of extreme secrecy and in global corporations with an eye on the 2030 project,” the Pasión por el Derecho edition quotes the text of the resolution.

Representatives of the department, which is responsible for overseeing the work of judges in Peru, have already announced that a review has begun against the authors of the ruling. The RPP publication indicates that it will be clear from its results whether a colleague committed a violation.

In early 2020, against the backdrop of a pandemic, conspiracy theories related to the spread of COVID-19 spread online. According to one version, some world forces (among which Bill Gates, the CIA and the Chinese authorities were mentioned ) specially brought the coronavirus into the laboratory and spread it to put the inhabitants of the planet at home, irradiate them with 5G, and then microchip them. 

Gates himself later stated that such theories were “difficult to deny” because they are “too ridiculous.” 

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) believes that the virus was not created artificially – the organization is of the opinion that the infection was transmitted to humans from bats.

US “on the edge”: Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US?

US "on the edge": Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US? 102

The United States is in danger of going to extremes, which after the January 6 events, no one knows what is happening in the country and the uncertainty seems to peak in the next few hours.

There are facts which could show that we are heading for the most dramatic hours the world has experienced since the August 1991 coup in Russia when the communists attempted to return to power and take control of the nuclear arsenal.

First, after an incomprehensible and unexpected blackout in Pakistan, a blackout happened in the Vatican.

A few hours before the blackout in Pakistan, the frequency of power grids in Europe dropped sharply,   and only renowned German engineers and no less famous German quality of equipment saved Europe from plunging into darkness, as it happened a little later in Pakistan:

Are there plans for some kind of Pentagon intervention, as Washington now resembles Moscow in August 1991?:

Second, US President N. Trump is ready to activate the Emergency Alarm system that bypasses all conventional media (television, internet, radio, etc.) to send a message to US citizens!

In response, of course, to the decision of the dominant online media, from Google to Fb, Amazon, Tweet, Twitch to ban Trump from communicating with US citizens, even through Parler, the medium used by tens of millions of right-wing Americans to communicate.

The Emergency Alarm System (EAS) is a national alert system in the United States that came into force on January 1, 1997 and is coordinated jointly by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). 

US "on the edge": Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US? 103

The system is designed primarily to allow the president to address the country by intervening in the programming of all radio and television stations in the event of a national emergency.

The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) is used as a backend for the dissemination of warning information via EAS and related technologies, such as Wireless Alerts Alerts (WEA), using Common Alerting Protocol (CAP). EAS messages are mainly transmitted via terrestrial and satellite radio and television (including broadcast and multichannel television), which must be part of the system. 

Millions of SMS have been sent in the last hours with the following update:

Third, the US military has been embroiled in an unprecedented political conflict. According to the New York Times, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked Chief of Staff General Marley Miley to restrict the president’s access to the nuclear arsenal, but he refused, as it would be a purely military coup.

The representative of the American Military leadership, David Butler confirmed that “the phone call was made and there was information about the nuclear control procedures”.

To add that 70% of the military support Trump, but one can not imagine the involvement of the US armed forces in the internal political conflict, even if it has gone beyond what could be assumed as “within reason.”

Fourth, the airspace above Washington was recently closed. Theoretically, it closed because an air traffic controller fell ill with coronavirus. Information was then leaked about “a possible terrorist attack by Iran in retaliation for Suleimani’s assassination.”

How likely is that? Then there were rumors that it was closed because N. Trump moved out of the White House accompanied by USAF fighters.

That is, for the movement of the aircraft of the presidency “Air Force 1” but it does not cease as a fact to be unprecedented.

The official excuse is that they disinfect the Air Traffic Control Room for flights over 18,000 feet because of a controller who tested positive for the virus.

See the picture of air traffic on the east coast of the USA, now:

Fifth, the arrival of the National Guard in Washington in large numbers:

https://twitter.com/disclosetv/status/1348423276255653889?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

Military helicopters observed over many US cities. There are many helicopters, they fly at unusually low altitudes and, if the helicopters are attack helicopters, people can consider full suspension systems with weapons:

https://twitter.com/serious_war_eng/status/1348292865315786754?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

Sixth, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released an UPDATE of the nuclear attack guidelines it gives to all Americans through the Ready.gov website. Among the items added by FEMA are the following:

On your way to work, find suitable hiding places to look for in the event of an explosion. Due to COVID-19, many of the places you may walk to and from work may be closed or may not work during normal hours. 

Such things were brought to the attention of the Americans for the last time fifty years ago, at the very peak of the Cold War, and the fact that this is now remembered again is very surprising to everyone. 

Seventh,since Sunday, January 10, the Boeing E-4B is constantly in the air – one of the so-called “doomsday aircraft”, that is, an air command post:

US "on the edge": Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US? 106

In normal times, any of these messages taken separately would have caused a serious panic among American conspiracy theorists, since, apart from periodic flights of “doomsday planes,” nothing of the above has ever happened. And now it turns out, as it were, seven inexplicable sensational news in 24 hours.

This allows one to think that in the United States either some not very good things are being prepared, or these things are in full swing. That is, we can talk either about some grandiose false flag or even a possible world war.
