The Age of Confusion – Mass Manipulation, Propaganda and Frequency Prisons

March 17, 2011, the UK Guardian published a report warning that social media is being manipulated.

Revealed: US spy operation that manipulates social media – Military’s ‘sock puppet’ software creates fake online identities to spread pro-American propaganda

“The US military is developing software that will let it secretly manipulate social media sites by using fake online personas to influence internet conversations and spread pro-American propaganda.

A Californian corporation has been awarded a contract with United States Central Command (Centcom), which oversees US armed operations in the Middle East and Central Asia, to develop what is described as an “online persona management service” that will allow one US serviceman or woman to control up to 10 separate identities based all over the world.”

…each fake online persona must have a convincing background, history and supporting details, and that up to 50 US-based controllers should be able to operate false identities from their workstations “without fear of being discovered by sophisticated adversaries”.

Frequency Prisons

Be aware, on the Internet these days there are many locations in consciousness that may be described as Frequency Prisons.  The consciousness of the readers is kept in a certain specific limited range of frequency by the dolling out of a slow low-grade level of constant addictive apprehension. The people behind these websites may have once held the best of intentions; they may not even now know what they are doing and what they are involved in. But nevertheless they have created walls that entrap consciousness in fear — and enlightenment eludes the fearful. We cannot go Home in Fear.

In forums there is a technique to this that may have begun innocently to attract subscribers, but has since become a business. There are ‘regulars’, meaning posters who have built specific identities. And just as actors can take on any role, these regulars reflect an assigned state of mind, a character that perceives the world through a specific spectrum. One may pose as the warning-of-doom do-gooder, another as the chronic hopelessly depressed, or maybe the knows-it-all science-guy, or the new age housewife psychic, or a flamboyant pistol-packing ex-military dude.

All are one-dimensional created characters. None of us are ever so one-dimensional.  For the sake of enthralling entertainment, they work in tandem playing the reader, the sucker.

The threads created by these one-dimensional characters inevitably carry the same repetitive frequency of a chronic apprehension, promulgating unease and doubt — but little if any truth. These threads of insidious fear are tolerated, even encouraged by the moderators. There is a comfort zone and misplaced trust for the addicted innocent reader in knowing the state of mind of the ‘regular’ poster, who often has an accompanying symbolic graphic identity.

Last year I posted briefly on a forum, which shall remain un-named. On one thread the ‘regular’ must have been drunk when I confronted him with being a paid fake. He said, “Yep! The boss says to just keep them entertained!” Well, as you may imagine his moderators soon noticed his half-wit revealing error and quickly moved in to cover the blunder. The ‘regular’ expressed a bit of anger towards me and addressed me as if I was a man. I suppose a woman is considered too stupid to figure out their game. I did what I could to expose them, but was met with an avalanche of resistance, some quite nasty.

Anyone who challenges these actors is derided as being immature and paranoid. The fear created by the actors is transferred onto and attributed to the one who dares to expose the fact that the participants are acting, role-playing to make the forum entertaining. Criticism of the challenger comes across as authoritarian or just plain rude arrogance, which is intended to reduce the challenger to a state of self-doubt and bewildered helpless confusion.  Treating the challenger like a delusional child who needs reprimanding is yet another technique to keep secret the business of Fear Inc. – and posts are extracted. No one is allowed to expose the mechanics of the intentionally fabricated entertainment.

Mechanics of the Crowd

The challenger exposing the fraudulent nature of the thread must be stopped. So the fear-peddling actors move in, perhaps reading the manual. A rude angry meaningless and unrelated comment attacking the motive of the challenger is tried. Oblique anger serves to fuel the thread. Next the original poster chimes in with a reply that shows genuine concern, suggesting the motives of the thread are beyond all reproach. Another asserts no one is afraid, only the challenger! Allay all fears, so the fear thread can go on and on and on. Attack the challenger and accuse them of being a nuisance in an otherwise sincere thread, then validate innocence of intent with ‘respect’ and a fake smile. Finally have someone post express his or her own personal serious fear as further fuel.

Fear is a Mechanism of Control

Fear keeps you quiet. Fear confuses. Fear invades higher states of consciousness and destroys them. Fear is a mechanism of control. Persistent belligerent and false fear mongering can never spring from an evolved and truly enlightened consciousness.

While there are many posting on forums who do have an evolved consciousness and are attempting to balance the dark energies, their efforts are overwhelmed, swamped by the ‘professionals’ who know that fear sells and keeps the readers addicted. These locations feel suffocating, like dingy cells padded in fabricated lies that hold consciousness in a perpetual state of apprehension. Privately many will complain and after a time most stop posting leaving the frequency prison to the fresh new hopeful clueless and unaware innocents, and the bored cynical paid pros.

Controlling our Minds with Propaganda

The idea of manipulating public opinion, beliefs, and habitual consumption is very old. Using the fear of death, religions have been duping us for centuries. The Jesuits were experts. We should not be surprised that more recent and intrusive ways have been found to influence and herd the masses.

In 1928, Edward L. Bernays (nephew of Sigmund Freud), wrote a small book entitled, ‘PROPAGANDA’, in which he delineates how to organize mass chaos, how propaganda can be used by an elite few to start wars and influence business, politics, literally every aspect of our lives. The book is available online free as a PDF. The final chapter is entitled: The Mechanics of Propaganda. For example:


“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government, which is the true ruling power of our country.

“…We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.”

And from an introduction to the published edition:

“That propaganda easily seduces even those whom it most horrifies is a paradox that Bernays grasped completely; and it is one that we must try at last to understand, if we want to change the world that Edward Bernays, among others, made for us.” – Mark Crispin Miller, NYC 2004; Ig Publishing edition.

The Age of Confusion

An important book worth looking at on propaganda was published in 1997, entitled, Taking the Risk out of Democracy: Corporate Propaganda versus Freedom and Libertyby Alex Carey, 1997; University of Illinois Press.

While this might not seem exactly metaphysical, my usual area of study, I believe it is very important for us all to understand the mechanics of propaganda and manipulation. Alex Carey’s book is key to learning how Americans have been lied to and manipulated — and thus fits into the predictions from the ancient Sanskrit text the Linga Purana concerning our current Age of Confusion, the Kali Yuga:

  • People will prefer to choose false ideas.
  • Base [low minded] men who have gained a certain amount of learning (without having the virtues necessary for its use) will be esteemed as sages.
  • Thieves will become kings, and kings will be the thieves.
  • Rulers will confiscate property and use it badly. They will cease to protect the people.

‘Taking the Risk out of Democracy, Corporate Propaganda versus Freedom and Liberty’ by Alex Carey, sheds some light on the demons in the closet of the United States of America.

As Mr. Carey informs us, “The common man…has never been so confused, mystified and baffled; his most intimate conceptions of himself, of his needs, and indeed the very nature of human nature, have been subject to skilled manipulation and construction in the interests of corporate efficiency and profit.”

This book tells us that we the American people have been subjected to a 75-year long multi-billion dollar intentional assault on our freedom to think and to choose.

“… propaganda techniques have been developed and deployed (in the United States)… to control and deflect the purposes of the domestic electorate in a democratic country in the interests of the privileged segments of that society.”

What is Propaganda?

“Propaganda is the management of collective attitudes by the manipulation of significant symbols… Collective attitudes are amenable to many modes of alteration… intimidation… economic coercion… drill. But their arrangement and rearrangement occurs principally under the impetus of significant symbols; and the technique of using significant symbols for this purpose is propaganda.”   (Laswell, Bradson, and Janowitz 1953:776-80).

These significant symbols are the catch phrases by which we human beings can be aroused to anger, to go to war, or merely to consume. Phrases like the American Way, the Free Enterprise System, the American Dream, and the global economy are meant to empower our faith — as opposed to creeping socialism, the red menace, and a national threat.

Significant symbols are “symbols with real power over emotional reactions, ideally symbols of the Sacred and the Satanic.”

People are polarized by these symbols. They see life in terms of good and bad, black and white, and thus are more easily manipulated. The ‘enemy’ out there may indeed seem evil. But in the solitude of our own hearts, we know that we are all a mix of both. None of us is so clearly saint or sinner. Instead of emotionally polarizing we could have a dialogue, a discussion; and yet, it seems we can be manipulated by propaganda into thinking almost anything.

Alex Carey suggests that we Americans might be the most brain washed country on the planet! One professor in Carey’s book, Professor Harwood Childs, states, “Americans are the most propagandized people of any nation.”

I know you are thinking, “Hey! Only the bad guys use propaganda. Only our enemies use propaganda.” And you are right, they do. But as we are now learning, the ‘bad’ guys are sometimes right in our own back yard and we don’t even see them.

Who are these ‘geniuses’ that believe they have the right to manipulate our thinking?

In the early days of World War I, we the America people – like any intelligent group of human beings – didn’t want to go to war. So we had to be convinced, or coerced, and this was done very effectively by a campaign launched by President Woodrow Wilson, Walter Lippman (an eminent journalist), and Edward Bernays (who just happened to be the nephew of Sigmund Freud). I can always remember the Bernays name because it sounds like that really fattening butter sauce.

Lippman and Bernays were brilliant at brainwashing.

Bernays is famous for saying, “If we understand the mechanisms and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it.” [from ‘Toxic Sludge is Good for You!‘ Common Courage Press]. Bernays called this ‘engineering consent.’

I don’t know about you, but I sure like to spend my weekends thinking about controlling the group mind. What are these weirdos thinking? The reason none of us have known that these things are going on is because none of us is capable of thinking like this! We have better ways to occupy our time.

The World War I propaganda campaign of Mr. Lippman and Mr. Bernays “produced within six months so intense an anti-German hysteria as to permanently impress American business (and Adolph Hitler, among others) with the potential of large scale propaganda to control public opinion.”

Bernays found a very practical use for his Uncle Sigmund’s science of psychology. “When the war ended, Bernays later wrote, business realized that the general public could now be harnessed to their cause as it had been harnessed to the war, to the national cause.” (Alex Carey).

This has been going on in the USA since before most of us were born, and propaganda has been used since the beginning of written history. Before metaphysics, I studied art and art history and I have concluded that much of what we consider to be art is in fact propaganda, wonderful beauty designed to intimidate and instruct. Think about those big statues of gods, rulers and tyrants.

Propaganda has Become a Profession

Today we have far more efficient means of distributing propaganda than ever before. The television, the Internet, and the media in general have made it easy for the masters of ‘spin’ and the public relations firms with their armies of lawyers, lobbyists, and paid-for-scientists to tell us what to think so that we will all be good little consumers. The true religion of the West is consumerism, and we are working night and day to spread that religion to our brothers and sisters around the world.

Every man, woman and child on the planet now has a right to shop at a Mall and eat burgers & fries, whether they want to or not. Was that in the Bill of Rights? Oh, yes, of course “the pursuit of happiness” is  — having more things! Or as one journalist noted, “When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping?”

Contempt for Us…

In 1927, Harold Lasswell wrote “Propaganda Techniques in World War I” and suggested that, “familiarity with the behavior of the ruling public (meaning those who had so easily succumbed to the propaganda) has bred contempt… as a consequence, despondent democrats turned elitist, no longer trusting intelligent public opinion, and therefore should themselves determine how to make up the public mind, how to bamboozle and seduce in the name of the public good…”

As Alex Carey points out, “propaganda has become a profession. The modern world is busy developing a corps of men & women who do nothing but study the ways and means of changing minds or binding minds to their convictions.”

Independent Thinking

There is nothing in our culture that encourages a person to think independently. Tell your family and friends that you are going off to think, and they will think you are crazy.

We in the West have had to access Eastern religions to realize that pursuits like meditation and contemplation are actually fertile uses of our time. We are encouraged to keep busy [deluded!] from the time we can walk until the day we die. Parents now send their babies to pre-schools.

What would happen if the human species were free? What would happen if we were not coerced, herded, and manipulated? What if each of us wanted to and had time to think, to become who were are, to cultivate our uniqueness and commune with our Source, the God that lives with-in each and every one of us? What might we become?

Is That What ‘They’ are Afraid of?

They must be afraid of something to have expended so much energy, money, and time all these years to keep us in such a narrow frame of expression.

These bozos who specialize in controlling and brain-washing us can only despise themselves — more than they so obviously despise and distrust us. Next time you spend a few hours absorbing mindless entertainment-and-advertising (they are never separate) designed to make you go out and consume more, more, more — stop for just a minute and think who you might be.

The corporatist elite continues to get away with the lies and the contempt.

Isn’t it time that we the people grew out of our adolescent denial and faced our own demons? If we confront our responsibility for our freedom, we might not lose it.

    *The Crisis at Fukushima 4
    by HARVEY WASSERMAN/CounterPunch
    We are now within two months of what may be humankind’s most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis. There is no excuse for not acting. All the resources our species can muster must be focused on the fuel pool at Fukushima Unit 4.

    Should the attempt fail, the rods could be exposed to air and catch fire, releasing horrific quantities of radiation into the atmosphere. The pool could come crashing to the ground, dumping the rods together into a pile that could fission and possibly explode. The resulting radioactive cloud would threaten the health and safety of all us.

    … A new fuel fire at Unit 4 would pour out a continuous stream of lethal radioactive poisons for centuries.

    … We have two months or less to act.

    For now, we are petitioning the United Nations and President Obama to mobilize the global scientific and engineering community to take charge at Fukushima and the job of moving these fuel rods to safety.

  • Jacques

    There is actually a name for these paid shills – Astroturfers. They are recruited to espouse a certain ideology – and attack anyone going against whatever their client’s want said.

    They do become easy to spot over time – the same tired cliches are often used (“off your meds, eh” “where’s you tin foil hat” and the ubiquitous “you’re nuts, man.”)

    Long on personal attacks and short on reasoning and hard, cold facts – they get paid extra when they’re the first to post a blog. (The first responders get read far more often than the others.)


    • Jacques,
      Thank you for excellent technical updates. The more we know about how these ratzoids operate, the better. They are a menace to freedom!
      Astroturfers – indeed.

  • Tone

    I read people like Paul Craig Roberts & more for many years. I got my first spiritual books in 1996. I notice that nearly all forum posts are incorrect & saturated with darkness & confusion.

    But worse, I had all bad experiences with people since birth, even though I met hundreds of people & used thousands of self-help, therapies, meditations & more. Ive only ever experience fraud & abuse, since birth, no matter where I go & what I tried. Only profound strange stories like people having amnesia & disappearing on me after saying im the best they ever met & to talk to. Plus massive hostility & attacks.

    I wish that life wasnt all bad experiences, since birth, and a prison in which years of thousands of honest efforts all just so happen to fail at a 100% rate.

    • Tone,
      Sounds like you are destined for Enlightenment in this life. This constant repeated running into brick walls and useless external experiences is a sure sign you are being called Home.

      Truly there is no lasting happiness in the external world. In Sanskrit the words for pleasure & pain are often written as one word: SukhaDuhkha – implying that one is irrevocably always linked to the other! You will find you way inside. Turn within your own Heart with the same fervor and dedication you have sought answers outside of you. That which you seek has been patiently waiting there all along!

      * excerpts from The Secret in the Heart’:

      It seems I saw You everywhere
      But in that secret place.
      There You waited,
      All along.
      How was I to know You’d pick
      Such a humble spot to dwell?
      I thought of You on top of Everest,
      Unreachable as stars as well …
      How quietly You waited, knowing,
      While I rushed about seeking You.
      High in airplanes over distant lands,
      Out the window I strained to gaze,
      Stretching to see … is that You?

      Yet all the time, You remained
      Being, shining, radiant …
      In the last place, it seems
      That I could see!
      Mysterious this game of hide and seek …

      What were You doing all this time?
      * There is no Time for me, beloved.
      Could You not stop me searching madly?
      * I hoped you would slow up and See …
      How could I be so foolish, Lord?
      * You are not foolish, my beloved. You ARE ME!!!

      • Its not that there is no lasting happiness…instead Its that life is 100% pain & suffering with never a state of being ok. I feel nothing but torture & imprisonment. 24/7/365 is misery with no good in life, no relief. Nothing matters whether its a poem or other words on screens, because life is torture & suffering no matter what is done inner, or outer. When i say torture & suffering i mean forget about working a job or doing any personal hobbies because the pain is excruciating. That is the frequency prison. I would say the problems are far under-stated

        • Fresh Poppin

          If you want to elicit sympathy or empathy, don’t say “I read a lot of self-help books”. Helping yourself is counter-productive, even though it might not seem that way, what with the genre’s misleading title and all.

          Try volunteering, or maybe visiting an old folks home to read to someone whose eyes are going. Anticipate the needs of others before they themselves do, then comply by being there to fill those needs at the right moment. Anticipate and Comply.

          Helping others makes me feel so good I almost feel selfish when I do it! To see their faces when they realize you were thinking of what they were gonna need before they were… That’s good stuff.

  • Not Sure

    Hi Susan,

    This isn’t a complaint but more of a request. Feel free to remove this post.

    This is from a real person living on the surface of planet earth.

    I read the article and have experienced similar things on various web forums. I no longer post at those forums.

    This was the first article I read on wakingtimes and found these two sentences odd.

    The Jesuits were experts. We should not be surprised that more recent and intrusive ways have been found to influence and herd the masses.

    …techniques, the Jesuit’s Inquisition…

    To someone who is an atheist these two sentences stood out.

    One other thing I found displeasing is your link to “”. To me the website is paranoid’s dreamland, it’s filled with “Propaganda” but maybe you haven’t been there and just linked to the pdf. I feel the site is psychologically damaging to people with problems.

    I would like to suggest to wakingtimes to add a page about each author with 15 to 20 Yes/No or simple to answer type of questions like:

    “What religion are you?”, “Do you believe in Aliens?”, or “Do you believe reptilians are ruling the planet?” Do you believe in Evil? etc… This would help me and maybe others to have some idea of where the person is coming from.

    From what I have found is that groups of people generally distinguish themselves from other groups by exclusion. I also believe that very little true knowledge gets communicated via the internet, you are usually preaching to your own choir.

    I’m trying to understand people who don’t think like me.

    I’m one of the 0.0001%


    • Victor Gagnon

      “Not Sure” your handle says it all. No one thinks like you and no one thinks like me.That is the beauty of who we are. I can never make you believe anything nor can you make me believe anything that I do not wish to believe. Your thoughts and your feelings belong to you. If you are not sure then start looking within and if you don’t understand that than find out.There is lots of information to choose from out there. You may find something wonderful in you and if you can understand this quote then you will have gained some knowledge but in order to make knowledge wisdom you must first experience the knowledge. Quote:”What people think of me is none of my business” To be self expressed is the ultimate for me as a human being. Being a sovereign human being is so much fun.
      Remember believe nothing you are told.
      This is simply my truth/my opinion.
      Try it you will like.
      Love yourself into life.

    • Hi Not Sure,

      I don’t quite understand what perplexes you about “…techniques, the Jesuit’s Inquisition…” The Jesuits wrote the book on brainwashing and wouldn’t you say that the Inquisition (torture & burning heretics) was the ultimate fear tool technique? To be honest, I never looked at and was only very pleased to be able to offer readers a free copy of the Bernays’ Propaganda book, as I had paid for mine.

      As for your questions:
      I have no interest in any ‘religion’ as such.
      I do have an unshakable understanding and faith grounded in primordial traditional metaphysical Wisdom Knowledge. My own experiences of 60 years have revealed to me that there is a ubiquitous imperishable eternal ONEness that dwells within the Hearts of All, and simultaneously permeates Earth, the galaxies, and the entire universe.

      As for the beings existing in other realms, I personally have seen over 30+ UFOs in daylight & night; also I have experienced a series of visions (that lasted for 6 months) of the colonization of this planet Earth by off-world beings, which I saw literally through their eyes; and I have written a book entitled “Colony Earth and the Rig Veda” which elucidates my ideas about planet Earth being a colony, one of hundreds, from the perspective of ancient Sanskrit and Tibetan Buddhist texts.

      We live in a polarity universe, so evil is simply part of the package of ‘appearances’ that occur in such a temporal illusory holographic universe.

      I hope this helps. Even though it seems that you now feel quite isolated, it is evident that you have not given up searching – and thus I am certain that through your own intelligent inquiry, you will eventually find your own answers. I also recommend Rene Guenon.

  • Thank you all for your kind comments.
    Here is a link to one I feel is courageously working at breaking down the propaganda.

    Coup d’etat — Paul Craig Roberts
    July 13, 2013

    The American people have suffered a coup d’etat, but they are hesitant to acknowledge it. The regime ruling in Washington today lacks constitutional and legal legitimacy. Americans are ruled by usurpers who claim that the executive branch is above the law and that the US Constitution is a mere “scrap of paper.”

  • DarkStarAz

    The drunk guy in your article strikes me as sarcasm rather than the real deal. I often post my opinions on 911 “Loose With The Truth” videos, and am often accused of working for the CIA; Got tired of it and finally started responding with things like “yeah I’m doing the CIA’s work for them, I hope they mail me a check soon!”
    I haven’t seen Cynthia Askee on CNN since September tenth, so please mail out another check. Thanx!

    • DarkStarAz:
      “The drunk guy in your article strikes me as sarcasm rather than the real deal.”

      If that were true then there would have been no need to attack me or send the entire working fake-personality group force after me. He and the others were quite vicious to me, a 67 year old lady. Although he did accuse me of being “pretty smart”! The absurd fun was that he (the pretender & fake) thought I was a clever male – only pretending to be an older woman! The paid employees quickly moved in, discredited and trounced me, and kept the lucrative and BTW complete & utter lies rubbish thread in business.

  • zx83b

    Thank you V.Susan, another thought provoking, interesting piece.

    Your experience of the orchestrated interference on the mystery site left me mildly incensed, I wish I had stumbled on that when it went down, I would have have crafted a baseball bat of truth and gone clubbing.

    I’m very curious as to which site it was, but as you made it clear, a gentleman never asks and a lady never tells!. 🙂

    These establishment trolls will not survive too long I’m sure, before being unmasked, after all their purpose is dishonesty and disinformation so they’ll expose themselves eventually.

    Perhaps a new sport will arise out of it, shrinking the troll with truth and humor!.

    Be honest or beware! 🙂

    • zx83b, thank you!
      Yes, I wish you would have been there with your baseball bat of truth! I could have used the razor sharp edge of your courage and keen intellect. They attacked me in droves. Even sent me emails, which eventually I understood were in fact computer generated! One kept sending me the same creepy email, saying something like: “I have been having very weird dreams lately…etc.” It was as if they thought they could by the power of suggestion place fear in my psyche! If you simply think of the most notorious forum… …

      * From my original article written before the Snowden revelations:
      Writing this has reminded me of a scene in my second book ‘Inanna Hyper-Luminal’, which has a frequency prison scene that I had envisioned in the eye-of-my-mind. On page 224, the evil tyrant Marduk confines “a mangy bunch of cranky criminal aliens” in one of his holographic prisons. “Large projectors flung the usual scenes of violence, maiming, and overwhelming mayhem against the wall, floor, and ceiling — a ghastly and unnerving sight, really… Some of the alien thieves were beginning to tremble; the ominous images projected around them were making them nervous.”

      In the 1971 film entitled ‘A Clockwork Orange’ a man is forced to watch endless hours of images encoded with horror, pain and fear. By a process of trial and error, perverted tyrannical manipulators had learned that this forced visual exposure to such terrible images left the victim helpless and without the will to act or think.

      The Internet is rapidly becoming embedded in the business of FEAR Inc. It is difficult to access even intelligent websites without seeing deformed pink creatures with teeth, bloodied faces or body skin, and the protruding breasts of young Asian girls (who we are supposed to believe are available & to whom?). I find it increasingly difficult to read web content and attempt to cover images with email or other cleaner blocking pages.

      This sort of scripted ‘FEAR Inc.’ entertainment has its sinister side. Somewhere in a dark room, most likely many floors deeper down, sit some highly strange and deviant excuses for humanity. Are they studying all this with the objective of ultimate control? Are we, the clueless innocent participating in an experiment that will make Lippman & Bernays’ Madison Avenue advertising techniques, the Jesuit’s Inquisition, or any other form of brainwashing propaganda seem by comparison like a Mother Goose fairy tale?

  • Thanks to people like you Susan, and internet, individuals can research deeper, and help one another discern fact from deception without judgement, until unity Consciousness brings our individual inner-net back on line, and self-reliant autonomy.

    • Thank you, Doreen Agostino!

      “help one another discern fact from deception without judgement”

      Yes, I agree. We need each other. We need to stand shoulder to shoulder in equality, in mutual respect. Freedom will come when we abandon both tyrants and cults.

      We meet in the Heart,

  • Victor Gagnon

    Well Susan you have out done yourself. I enjoy all of your articles but this is one of your best articles that I have read for this time. Your light hearted comments made me laugh and thank you for that. “fattening butter sauce” Yummy! Ha!
    You talk about Americans. Well I am Canadian, oh wait a minute actually I am a want to be American but think I am Canadian, you know the goody two shoes. Those Canadians are so nice but that is just another word for very unconscious. Whatever the U.S. does we simply follow like sheep. I have friends in the U.S. but now after my last encounter last summer with those bozos a the border, I stay home.
    In my retirement I have decided to remove myself from the big cities and spend a lot time thinking, contemplating and simply being in a state of joy, my choice. I am experiencing the joy of having time to look at the big picture but never giving away my power. I am simply observing the world. I now understand why some hide in caves or go to very remote areas to get a way from all the BS which is being fed us.
    Thanks again for your wonderful article. (great research)

    • Victor Gagnon,
      Thank you! What a lovely reply! I’m delighted I was able to make you laugh. We need a sense a humor, do we not? Bozos is right!

      You have said, “…decided to remove myself from the big cities and spend a lot time thinking, contemplating and simply being in a state of joy, my choice. I am experiencing the joy of having time to look at the big picture but never giving away my power. I am simply observing the world.”

      Excellent! Remaining alone in the countryside off and on throughout my 67 years of my wandering life has always brought incredibly wonderful rewards! I highly recommend this to everyone. Wisdom Knowledge and all things of real value are revealed to us in deep Silence. Many years ago I wrote this for my website and it continues to be popular:

        Susan, just read your attached article (alone) and you are so bang on and I also enjoyed your reply. What I like is that you respond to all who reply to you.You are definitely a gift to us all. Because I am no longer rushing around, fixing, buying, working, going here or going there I have time to observe nature at its best. Something I used to do so much when I was younger. Still many who live in this remote area as I do they are still caught up in the “I don’t have time and I am so busy” Now all of the things I do in my life I do with absolute joy and pleasure. I truly love myself into life. The journey continues.
        Thank you Susan you are one with perfection.

        • Hi Victor Gagnon,
          Thank you for your generous words. You are a gentleman! I’m happy that you liked the ‘Alone’ article. As you say, “Now all of the things I do in my life I do with absolute joy and pleasure. I truly love myself into life. The journey continues.”

          Beautiful! Sounds as if you have found the secret.
          And yes I agree with you, the journey does continue.
          Thank you, kind sir!

    Many diverse and important point nicely brought together. Thank you especially for the pointers about how opinion is manipulated on the Internet. I get particularly dejected when seemingly truth telling sites like Zen-Haven repost reports and stories straight out of the MSM Be Afraid meme machine.

    So don’t we live in “Babylonian” times? The Tower of Babel couldn’t be completed because its builders all started speaking “in different tongues”, i.e. there was a complete breakdown in reliable communication.

    • dimitri ledkovsky, thank you!
      I do appreciate your reply. It is so good to know I’m not alone out here. I know exactly what you mean about some sites that initially appear to be something and yet cause a reaction of constant apprehension in my being. I have tried to train myself to just stop reading what creates Fear in me. Sometimes this process is quite subtle.

      I am a ‘sensitive’ and a bit of a hermit. My mother was the 7th child of the 7th child. I pick up energies rather too easily for my own comfort. I can often actually see visualize my readers! Thus I have experienced the actual accumulation of what I call “cooties” (astral energies) on various web sites and forums. They haunt my consciousness. Sometimes I have to leave commenting altogether!

      Babylon indeed! Thank you again!

    This is a great article, well put together and encompasses the big picture. The awakening has begun and no one can stop it.

    • Thank you, Dustin, for these good heart warming words:

      “The awakening has begun and no one can stop it.”

      Having sources of information we can trust is key.
      The internet has become a constant challenge to discern the liars from those who are sincere. The “Mix” of lies with truth makes our job even harder. That ‘Propaganda’ book free PDF by Bernays is amazing!

  • For those of you who follow economics and the travesty of the current stock market, a recent comment on CNBC from a billionaire actually gets down to the pathetic reality and tragic truth beneath the layers of media propaganda thus:

    “This is the biggest redistribution of wealth from the middle class and the poor to the rich ever. Who owns assets—the rich, the billionaires.”

    Druckenmiller is among those billionaires, but explained that as a citizen this concerns him. But “as a money manager and a wealthy person that deals in markets, this is great for me,” he continued, “But I don’t think this is great for America.”
