Here’s a new interview with Clifford Stone. I don’t agree with everything Clifford has to say about ETs and ET craft but I do think he has a lot to say that is worth listening to and he has integrity – which is rarer than hen’s teeth ! Clifford of course is of course getting older and has been sharing for a long time now, although he has done very few interviews. Those with an interest in his FOI work, should hunt for his collection on the net somewhere. It’s 6 GB in size. I have a copy but do not have the legal right to share it. Perhaps you can ask Clifford directly via Facebook. It’s well worth reading and has many documents on so called Advanced Propulsion Systems and UFOs Reports.
Humans have this fixation with anti-gravity technologies and wormholes and I think this is the wrong approach for us. It is of course the direction that the military are following. Everything that I have learned suggests to me, that life force and consciousness based interfaces and craft are the critical aspects of most space faring civilisations. THEY DO NOT HAVE PROPULSION SYSTEMS ! And most space faring civilisations have sentient craft – which are living beings that are grown, not constructed from technologies.
As Clifford suggests, by way of comparison (which may not be possible) some ETs are billions of years beyond us. The use of Advanced Propulsion Systems will be slow and keep us at a primitive stage of development. Which is exactly where we are spiritually. I can’t help chuckle that the military think this is the way to go. Stuck on 19th and 20th century ideas and scientific principles. Reality isn’t based on quantum mechanics or string theory. And while ever our scientists think it is, humanity will be caught in a web of self deception, in which everything the ETs do, looks like magic and we know sweet fuck all !

I wasn’t previously a fan of Daniel Sheehan but I’ve changed some of my thoughts about him after listening to this video. He makes some really good points about how The Architecture (although he uses the well known ‘military industrial complex’ term) will react to the subject of ET contact and so called citizen diplomacy. This talk was done 23 years ago and was a pretty accurate assessment of how things are. Much of what he raises is more relevant today than ever. His story of how he came to be a lawyer, after wanting to make contact with ETs is pretty funny and peculiar and demonstrates how sometimes we have to go in a completely different direction to where we imagined, to gain certain things and be who we really are.
TSM120 : A Rough Sketch of The Architecture & The Diamond Complex – Power Structures that Rule the World
Today’s monolgue is dedicated to Sandor and Frederic for your ongoing financial support and encouragement. And to Oliver and Astrid for your ongoing friendship and openeness. I wish you all well !
I’ve spoken on my blog many times about a the global power structure that I call The Architecture. A structure that has both ET and human elements. In today’s monologue I give you a rough sketch of The Architecture (the same basic information has been discussed on the blog previously) and a more pervasive structure I call The Diamond Complex (which I have referenced on the blog only in passing). Consider this an introduction to both. It is my wish to soon describe The Diamond Complex in greater detail on the blog. These structures represent how things really are and bypass such simple explanations as The Powers That Be, The Illumanati, The Elites, The Cabal, Bilderbergs, Trilateral Commision etc. In future blog posts, rather than naming names, I will try to map out how you too can discover certain elements of both structures.
Sorry I didn’t get to talk about how surveillance and monitoring connect with all this ! I was freezing !
Here I am sitting at my desk naked again, with a glass of water and a small fan I purchased last night. It’s 10 am and 37 degrees C / 98.6 F already. The predicted maximum for today is 42 degrees C / 107.6 but it will probably hit 47 degrees C / 116.6 F in the shade, just as it did yesterday. So I’ll be trying my best not to melt and to think clearly. But believe me, it’s not easy, when you feel like getting naked to the bone !
This post is a continuation of the one I started here : https://etandi.wordpress.com/2015/12/09/the-man-who-changed-everything/ . I tried to finish it a few days ago but was unhappy with what I’d written, so here goes round two.
* * *
You will recall that I began this story by telling you that Dude asked me what I knew about Nitroglycerin and he prompted me to follow up by researching it and by asking my ex wife what she knew about it. You will also recall that Nitroglycerin was discovered by the Italian chemist Ascanio Sobrero, who has become a footnote in the history of Nitroglycerin. So today I’d like to tell you a little about Dude’s relationship with Ascanio and how that relationship changed the course of the human story.
I’m not sure how it came to pass but Dude knew all about Ascanio from the day he was born. He watched him as a small boy and then one day, just as he did with Rachel, he introduced himself. The young Ascanio loved the natural world and it was in this context that he and Dude became close friends. For the most part, Dude would meet Asacanio when he was outdoors. Both of them loved plants. Dude paid careful attention to Ascanio’s life and where possible – in small ways, nurtured certain interests that he had. Later as a young man, after Ascanio had pursued medicine and turned to chemistry, Dude encouraged him to explore certain aspects of chemistry. Dude knew something about Ascanio’s family, that was largely unknown to his family. The men in his family were afflicted with heart disease and tended to live short lives. They suffered a great deal of pain and it significantly affected the quality of their lives. Dude had grown very fond of Ascanio and wanted to give him something that would help to alleviate his then unknown heart condition. Dude had already seen Asanio’s future when he first noticed him and so what he chose to do, was if you like, a fulfillment of what had already happened. At that time, Dude could see that if he intervened and guided Ascanio towards the discovery of Nitroglycerin; then one of several things could happen. Ascanio could discover Nitroglycerin and eventually use it to treat himself and alleviate much of his heart problem and the heart problems that would affect his siblings and his children. Others might later develop it for application to a broad range of heart problems. Ascanio and others might then create a range of very powerful Nitroglycerin drugs, that would greatly benefit human and animal health. Following this line of cause and effect, the discovery of Nitroglycerin would have enormous benefits for countless generations of humans and animals. There was however another equally probable scenario that could unfold. In addition to Ascanio’s discovery of Nitroglycerin and it’s eventual application to human and animal health, it could be used as an explosive and propellant. In that scenario, one Alfred Nobel could develop stable forms of Nitroglycerin that could be used to create Dynamite, Gelignite and Cordite – which could be used as powerful explosives in the construction, mining and demolition industries and could eventually play a significant role in opening up the America’s, stimulating the development of the ammunition and explosives industry and in stimulating the development of the space race. Dude could see that this path, could lead to the death of hundreds of millions of human beings, the extinction of large numbers of animal and plant species, lay the foundation for much of what today I call the lower arms of The Architecture, reshape the entire structure of the human world, lead to the development of space exploration and eventually create public and private space travel. At this point in Dude’s relationship with Ascanio, he had a choice – to continue to watch a man he loved and cared about suffer or to ease his suffering. It was that simple. As you know, he chose to ease his suffering and that choice has changed everything, for every one of us.
When you think about what Dude did, as I have done, you realize this choice was absolutely catastrophic. But like Pangloss (Gottfreid Leibnez in disguise) in Voltaire’s Candide (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candide – which incidentally is one of my favourite books), you also realize that he had to do this to create “the best of all possible worlds” for the human race.
* * *
Before I tell you a little bit about how Asanio’s discovery changed the world, let me first tell you this. Dude has told me, quite categorically, that there are countless other great benefits to be gained from Nitroglycerin but that we have yet to discover them. We have only just scratched the surface of this wonder compound. It’s greatest powers have yet to be unearthed ! And while Dude and other ETs would be the first to suggest you don’t need drugs to correct any health problem; they would also agree, that at certain times in human history, certain people can and do benefit from drug treatments.
When Ascanio discovered Nitroglycerin, he was terrified of the consequences of sharing what he had learned about it’s explosive potential. But 3 years later, Alfred Nobel’s teacher ProfessorNikolai Zinin At the Uniniversity of St Petersburg (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikolay_Zinin), made the mistake of showing Alfred and his father the explosive potential of Nitroglycerin (http://www.nobelprize.org/alfred_nobel/biographical/articles/russia/):
“The first time I saw nitroglycerine was in the beginning of the Crimean War. Professor Zinin in St. Petersburg exhibited some to my father and me, and struck some on an anvil to show that only the part touched by the hammer exploded without spreading. His opinion was that it might become a useful substance for military purposes, if only a practical means could be devised to explode it … My father tried to explode it during the Crimean war, but completely failed to do so … My father’s later experiments with gunpowder mixed with nitroglycerine were all on a small scale.”
“Yes, Sobrero who discovered it, also discovered that it was explosive. Professor Zinin and Professor Trapp in St. Petersburg went a step further in conjecturing that it might be made useful and called the attention of my father to it, who was then engaged in making torpedos for the Russian government during the Crimean War. My father tried it, but could not get it to explode.”
The Nobel family decided then to use Nitroglycerin in their armaments. But in 1864 an explosion in one of their factories killed 5 people, including his brother Emil. Nitroglycerin was very volatile and unsuitable in it’s current form. It was then that Alfred decided to find a way to stabilize it, which he did successfully, at first by himself and then under the guidance of his father.
You’ll recall that Alfred Nobel went on in 1865 ,to form the Dynamit Nobel AG company. Within a decade, Alfred’s company had 16 explosives producing factories in 14 countries. Alfred’s company did so well, that he began mergers with many other companies and very quickly established a very wealthy and influential industrial empire. According to Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamit_Nobel) , Alfred was involved in the following expansions :
- 1865 Alfred Nobel & Co founded in Krümmel near Hamburg.
- 1866 United States Blasting Oil Company founded in the United States
- 1867 Nobel receives patent for dynamite
- 1871 British Dynamite Company founded in Ardeen, Scotland
- 1876 Nobel receives patents for gelignite
- 1876 Société Générale pour la Fabrication de la Dynamite founded in Paris, France
- 1876 Alfred Nobel & Co changes its name to Dynamitaktiengesellschaft (DAG)
- 1877 British Dynamite Company changes its name to Nobel’s Explosives Company
- 1880 Dynamite Nobel formed by merging Italian and Swiss companies
- 1886 Nobel-Dynamite Trust Co formed by merging DAG and the Nobel’s Explosives Company in the UK.
In 1871 Alfred apparently said, “England is a jewel worth the rest of the world. A dynamite company there would have the entire Empire as its market,” (http://www.nobelprize.org/alfred_nobel/biographical/articles/lundstrom/). It is clear looking back, that Alfred had his sights set on total domination of the explosives market.
Alfred was a very savvy entrepreneur and his formation in 1886 of the Nobel-Dynamite Trust Co, created the first international company that owned shares in other companies and controlled or co-controlled their business. That idea has totally reshaped the way that businesses function in the modern world and has been the driving force behind what we think of as Economic Globalization (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_globalization).
In his life time Alfred developed Dynamite, Gelignite, Ballistite and Cordite – powerful explosives and propellants; which laid the foundation for much of the construction, mining and demolition industries
After Alfred’s death in 1896 but prior to WW1, Dynamite Nobel had become the largest producers of explosives and propellants (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propellant) in Europe. Ballistite and Cordite also became foundation of the emerging armaments and rocket industry (http://www.lr.tudelft.nl/en/organisation/departments/space-engineering/space-systems-engineering/expertise-areas/space-propulsion/design-of-elements/rocket-propellants/solids/). By the time of his death, Alfred had established 90 armaments factories.
By the time of his death, Alfred Nobel had influenced the development of explosives and propellants in America and in Europe. He had over 355 patents/inventions to his name – most of which were related to explosives , ammunition, projectiles and rockets (https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Author:Alfred_Nobel / http://www.nobelprize.org/alfred_nobel/biographical/patents.html ). Many of his inventions became the precursors to the arms and space race. Although he didn’t invent explosives, he vastly improved them and as a result, created explosives that paved the way for the expansion not just of continental North America but South America and many of the British, Dutch, German, Portuguese and Spanish colonies.
It’s worth noting that many of the companies that Alfred started; now have histories and entanglements associated with the worlds major manufacturers of explosives, railway materials and trains, chemicals, weapons, aircraft, educational materials, agricultural products and pharmaceuticals. They also have very close relationships with the military and finance industries.
In 1888 Alfred formulated the first double bass solid rocket propellant (https://books.google.com.au/books?id=UU3v0tbq8acC&pg=PA186&lpg=PA186&dq=propellants+Alfred+Nobel+rockets&source=bl&ots=bkL1u8gQIF&sig=Q_hXOurZwG-otgyOtrouVVa6EqU&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjp2ba-nufJAhUj5qYKHckzD1kQ6AEIGzAA#v=onepage&q=propellants%20Alfred%20Nobel%20rockets&f=false / https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid-fuel_rocket) and this was later explored and developed by Robert Goddard in the US (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_H._Goddard). Robert is considered by many to be the father of modern rocketry. Robert was concerned that industrial/corporate support for his patents might undermine his work, so he turned to the US Army Signal Corps (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Signal_Corps_(United_States_Army) to support what he was doing. But after the end of WW1, the Signal Corps seemed to lose faith in Robert’s vision. So between WW1 and WW2 Robert’s work on rocketry was supported by the Guggenheim family (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guggenheim_family), who saw great potential in Robert’s work.
Meanwhile in Germany, prior to WW1, certain science fiction writers were developing their own ideas about rockets and space travel. Many of these ideas, such as those of Kurd Lasswitz, who wrote one of the first science fiction stories about ships that harnessed anti-gravity (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurd_Lasswitz); were pivotal catalysts in the formation of the German rocket program after WW1. Many of Germany’s armaments pioneers and early rocketeers used explosives and propellants produced by Alfred Nobel’s companies. But there were also other German inventors, influenced by Alfred’s ideas, who developed their own explosives and propellants. The first serious effort to focus on the development of rockets in Germany, began with the formation of The Society for Space Travel (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verein_f%C3%BCr_Raumschiffahrt . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verein_für_Raumschiffahrt). An orgnization started by Joahannes Winkler (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes_Winkler), Max Valier (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Valier) and Wiley Ley (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willy_Ley – who wrote Rockets – the Future of Travel Beyond the Stratosphere and Engineers Dreams) . In September 1930 the group received funding and permission from the German Army to begin test firing rockets at a local ammunition dump. Two years later at the request of Captain Walter Dornberger (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Dornberger – who would later head the V2 Rocket program), the group (which then included the young Wernher Von Braun (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wernher_von_Braun), unsuccessfully fired a rocket in front of 3 high commanded German officers, who asked for another demonstration. Wernher was in favour of the demonstration but the other members of the group disagreed with him and the group soon disbanded. German rocketry moved slowly during this time but then accelerated in the period leading up to WW2. German scientists and rocket enthusiasts became increasingly interested in Robert Goddard’s work in America.
In 1937 the Germans created the Peenemunde Army Research Centre (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peenem%C3%BCnde_Army_Research_Center), under the technical direction of Wernher von Braun. Which among other things paved the way for the development of the V- Weapons rocket program (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V-weapons) and Germany’s Wonder Weapons (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wunderwaffe).
Near the end of WW2, Wernher von Braun and 127 German rocket scientists (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_German_rocket_scientists_in_the_United_States) came to the US under Operation Paperclip (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Paperclip – which included the transfer of 1,500 German and other European scientists, engineers and technicians). After Operation Paperclip, US defense and industry groups integrated many of their German recruits into their best programs. The 26 year old Wernher von Braun was supposedly “bleached” of his Nazism (though there is evidence to suggest he stayed true to his NAZI ideals) and between 1950-56 he was placed in charge of the Army’s rocket development team. He brought with him knowledge of the then captured V-2 Rocket and the other V rockets and drew upon the inspirational work of Robert Goddard’s, to greatly improve rocket design. Meanwhile the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA /https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Advisory_Committee_for_Aeronautics) continued it’s work on the development of advanced aircraft and propulsion systems. As a result of his work on the Redstone Rocket, Wernher was made director of the Development Operations Division of the Army Ballistic Missile Agency (which reported to NACA) – which later developed the Jupiter-C rocket and in January 1958, launched America’s first Satellite – Explorer 1. This ultimately led in part, to the transformation of NACA into NASA and shifted the focus of their work towards the development of space technologies – which were largely guided by the vision of Wernher von Braun.
At this point in the story, there is no need to go any further. You all know something about the space race and the kinds of things that NASA has been interested in. And you also know something about the development of the American aerospace industry. This story isn’t really about filling in ALL the gaps. That’s for you to do. It’s more about helping you to see some of the connections and how one thing led to another.

In his will, Alfred Nobel’s left 94 % of his wealth US $ 186,000,000 by today’s standards) (http://www.nobelprize.org/alfred_nobel/will/), to the creation of a set of international awards in 5 different categories – Chemistry, Physics, Physiology or Medicine, Literature and Peace (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Prize). The Nobel Foundation was established after in 1900 to manage Alfred’s bequeath and it now manages assets to the value of US $560, 000, 000 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Foundation). Alfred’s brothers Ludvig and Robert also became very wealthy (thanks to Russian oil – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Branobel) and his children have also done very well for themselves. The Nobel family has ties to all kinds of industries – including finance, chemical, explosives, armaments, energy, medicine, defense, pharmaceuticals, oil etc. But they also have ties to medicine, human rights, environmental conservation, helping the disadvantaged, charitable trusts and philanthropy. the Nobel family has often been compared to the Rockefeller family because like the Rockefellers, their seems to be caring family members and greedy family members. Like all families.
Alfred lived alone and unmarried for most of his life, despite having had 3 significant relationships with women. Near the end of his life Alfred met a peace activist by the name of Countess Betha Kinsky (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bertha_von_Suttner), who would become for a short while, his second love. Betha was an Austrian peace activist, who had written a novel called Lay Down Your Arms, which had a significant impact on the European peace movement. She also headed the German Peace Society and edited the Peace Journal Die Waffen nieder! After she returned to her former partner, she remained in contact with Alfred and it is believed by many, that she had a major impact on Alfred’s decision to bequeath money for a set of prizes, that included one which recognized an individual had contributed to global peace. But Alfred was a very complex man, who is not easy to dissect from history. He was an avid lover of literature and dabbled in writing himself. On the Nobel Prize website (http://www.nobelprize.org/alfred_nobel/biographical/articles/erlandsson/), there is this comment about his interest in writing :
“Nobel was in many respects a man of the pen: he was continuously writing letters, noting down all kinds of fanciful ideas and plans for inventions, philosophising over the origin of the cosmos and the evolution of man, discussing questions of faith and knowledge, war and peace.”
Given his interest in all things, including peace, it is possible that he felt some regret about what he had created. No less than Albert Einstein thought that Alfred may have created the Nobel Prize out of guilt (http://www.nobelprize.org/alfred_nobel/biographical/articles/tagil/) to atone for what he had done :
“Alfred Nobel invented an explosive more powerful than any then known — an exceedingly effective means of destruction. To atone for this ‘accomplishment’ and to relieve his conscience, he instituted his award for the promotion of peace.”
Yet Einstein himself contributed indirectly to the development of the Atomic Bomb, by urging Teddy Roosevelt to develop the atomic bomb before the German’s did. But unlike Alfred, Albert Einstein spent much of his life dedicated to advocating peace and the creation of organizations focused on cultivating peace. Whether it was guilt that motivated Einstein to do so or just his constitution is unclear. I think, despite his contribution to the horrors of the arms race, he was at heart a deeply loving and mystical soul, who cared for the greater good.
But perhaps the real motivator for Alfred to bequeth most of his wealth for the greater good, was what others said about him. In 1891, he was accused of “high treason against France” for selling Ballistite to Italy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Nobel#Personal_life). Subsequently he moved from Paris to San Remo in Italy, later that year. In 1888, after his brother Ludvig died, a French newspaper supposedly ran an obituary – naming Alfred as the deceased Nobel brother. In it’s obituary the newspaper said,
“The Merchant of Death is Dead”
“Dr. Alfred Nobel, who became rich by finding ways to kill more people faster than ever before, died yesterday.”
Alfred witnessed first hand, how people saw him before he had died and I suspect it made him feel very uncomfortable.
* * *
Alfred Nobel’s inventions changed the face of Earth, its people and it’s plant and animal species. It consolidated the total annihilation of millions of people and animals and almost all the worlds native peoples. And it laid the foundation for the development of space flight. The impact of his inventions will continue to ripple out through time and has forever changed the path of the human species. And everything that Nobel achieved, owes it’s existence to Ascanio Sobrero’s discovery of Nitroglycerin. A discovery that Dude helped him to make.
So let me tell you something important. Dude made a choice. He could have chosen not to guide Ascanio and deterred he or anyone else from discovering Nitroglycerin. And he could have continued to let Ascanio and his family suffer. But he didn’t. Here’s what he did. He consulted with the other 8 ETs who oversee the welfare of this planet and he consulted with the largest collective. He discussed the issue with Number One. And after a consensus had been reached, he chose to help Ascanio to discover Nitroglycerin. Dude’s actions were in alignment with the best possible future for humanity. Voltaire would probably agree ! But in the short term, his actions look like they have unleashed hell upon Earth. Dude wanted to help just one man that he cared about. But he saw how the discovery of Nitroglycerin would create great benefit and great suffering. He saw many potentialities and several probabilities. And I suspect he saw exactly what WOULD happen. Dude made a choice to alter our timeline (see this post on metaphors for time : https://etandi.wordpress.com/2014/12/27/perceptions-of-time-part-2-metaphors-for-describing-time/) for the greater good. This is the timeline that you and I know and the one that created us. Without Dudes intervention, history as we know it and the future as we will know it, would be completely different.
But understand this. The unfolding of humanity is always being influenced by ETs. Not just in big ways but in lots of tiny little ways. You might think that ETs influenced us in the discovery of fire and the wheel but they didn’t. Those were just accidents in our growth. But they did influence the development of the fish hook and spear tip in ancient man. Those two things really changed everything, at that point in human development.
For every ET intervention or influence, there is both a positive and a negative aspect. Just as every human idea has a positive and a negative aspect. But it’s up to us to make choices what we do with these ideas that enter our hearts and minds. It’s not up to the ETs to make these choices. It’s up to us !
We all make choices every moment and every single day of our lives. Ascanio could have chosen stay in medicine or to ignore Dude or to remained quiet about Nitroglycerin or it’s explosive potential. Nikolai Zinin could have said nothing to Alfred Nobel. Alfred Nobel, could have focused on the medical or pharmaceutical benefits of Nitroglycerin. Alfred’s father, could have chosen to give Alfred a stern warning about what he was doing. Any number of countless choices could have been made, that would have changed the path of history.
* * *
Dude didn’t think much of Alfred Nobel. He once appeared before him but he refuses to tell me what he did or said. Normally he would take someone and show them the future. But this time he did something different. I have this feeling that whatever it was, it terrified Alfred and left him an empty man. Perhaps Dude’s actions had as much to do with Alfred’s generous bequeath, as anything else.
Ultimately Dude was unable to save Ascanio but he alleviated some of his physical suffering. As Dude has continued to remind me, the greatest benefits of Nitroglycerin remain hidden before us, waiting for the right people to discover them. And ETs like Dude, continue to influence us and to develop relationships with kind hearted people.
Everything is connected to everything else and everything we do, affects everything else. Life is an never ending series of butterflies, constantly flapping their way across our existence and the development of the human species and life on this precious Earth. Every butterfly casts out it’s own butterfly moments and history itself is made of butterfly moments. You might say that ETs like Dude are simply releasing butterflies at just the right moment. Knowing where the path of every butterfly will lead. And knowing that every butterfly begets other butterfly’s.

I’ve left lots of hints through this post for you to map out the lower arms of The Architecture and to figure out just how enmeshed this structure is in the modern world. It’s up to you, to be interested enough to discover what I have discovered. Or, alternatively, you might just think this was a quaint little story and leave it at that !

Here’s a great interview with former Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson.
Here’s another great interview with Noam Chomsky on the American Empire.
And finally, here’s a great talk on a Imperial Capitalism at play in the 21st century by Thomas Piketty (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Piketty / https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_in_the_Twenty-First_Century / http://www.amazon.com/Capital-Twenty-First-Century-Thomas-Piketty/dp/1491534656).
Think of these videos as primers for the second part of my story about Ascanio Sobrero and how ETs engineer the human future.
This post maybe the most important post I have ever written on any of my blogs. The story I am about to tell you, is perhaps the most important story about ETs and the most important ET disclosure story, that you will ever learn about. It is a story that only one other human being on Earth knows about and a story that has remained out of sight from every covert group on the planet. It’s a story that has great value, only when you give it great value. Some of you won’t get it’s significance and that’s OK but some of you will. And for those of you who do get it’s significance, I suggest you think of this story as an opportunity to do your homework. Look at this story as a catalyst, that might – if you are determined enough; lead you to some of the most unexpected places and most unexpected of conclusions. This story has the potential to lead you, to many of the great secrets of the modern age. I have often left hints in my blog posts, none more so, than in this one. Before you read this story I suggest that you read the last article I wrote here : https://etandi.wordpress.com/2015/12/06/defanging-the-war-plan-and-the-nobel-peace-prize/
This story begins where all stories begin, with the most innocuous and simple beginning. I was sitting on the edge of my bed one morning, thinking about what I would write that day, when Dude popped into my head and said “What do you know about Nitroglycerin?”. “Not much”, I replied, “I think they use it for heart attacks !”. Dude went silent for about ten seconds and then said, “Look it up and see where it takes you.” So later that day, that’s exactly what I did. I turned on my computer and went straight to Wikipedia – that imperfect goblet of knowledge I prize like a best friend and quickly discovered that Nitroglycerin had been discovered by an Italian chemist by the name of Ascanio Sobrero. Sobrero’s discovery was later hijacked by Alfred Nobel, who applied it to the creation of explosives. I remembered that Nitroglyecerin was an active ingredient in explosives, because I’d nearly blown myself up with it in my university chemistry classes but I didn’t know anything else about it. Dude’s teaser sent me on a very long chase, that led me to the Germans in WW1/11, a whole host of European, British and American Industrialists from the last 150 years, the German rocket program, NASA, many different groups in the US and British military, some of the world biggest banks and creditors and ultimately to the lower arms of The Architecture (the Military Industrial Complex).
The next morning when I woke up I asked Dude, “Now what ?” and he promptly replied, “Go ask Rachel (my ex wife) if she knows anything about Nitroglycerin ?”. So later that day, I jumped in my car and went to see Rachel. We sat down and had a cuppa and I explained what had happened and then I asked her “What do you know about Nitroglycerin ?”. She looked at me for a long, quiet minute and then proceeded to tell me that what she was going to tell me would lead me on a very interesting journey of discovery. I thought she was going to tell me a long story linking all the dots together. But she didn’t. Instead she said two things, “An ET worked with him” and “That particular ET really liked him”. So we had our cuppa and we sat staring at each other. Then she turned to me and with a smile on her face said, “He was Dude’s friend”. And that was it. We finished our cuppa and I went home.
All night I tossed in bed, unable to disconnect myself from the pattern I could see. I should also tell you something. At one point I worked with people who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia. I’d seen first hand the impact of total delusion and paranoia and what happens when people join too many dots. I worked with the young guy who thought he was a Russian general in World War 1 and the lady who thought she was an angel and the guy who thought he was the antichrist and the young man who wanted to kill people because he thought they were scanning him with their jumpy legs. Had I not had the experience of two people helping me to join these invisible dots, I would not have followed that path myself. But I did and I knew that there was a damned good reason that Dude had prompted me to go down this path. Both he and Rachel know that when I get a sense of something (usually it grabs my heart and I don’t know why), I have to follow it to a conclusion and find the pattern that is hidden from my rational mind. So that’s just what I did. And so now, with both Rachel and Dude’s permission to do so, I’m going to tell you what I learned.
* * *
Ascanio Sobrero was born in Casale Monferrato in Northern Italy on the 12th October, 1812; to Joseph Gaetano Sobrero (a doctor) and Josephine Demichelis. Ascanio had a sister, Felicity (of who history tells us nothing) and two brothers, Candido his twin brother (who became a general) and Lorenzo (who became a prominent judge). Ascanio was a precocious young boy, who developed a great love of the natural world. He especially loved plants and found them endlessly fascinating. He was constantly curious about how things worked. And as a 9 year old boy, he witnessed his grandfather make an extract of Peruvian Bark (Holy Bark) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesuit%27s_bark) for a farmer, who came to him with a severe fever. At the time he didn’t know anything about microbes or what would become what would become the theory of antibiotics. But his grandfathers actions ignited his curiosity in the power of plants as medicine. Later in life he would learn that Peruvian Bark contained Quinine, which has strong antimpyretic/analgesic properties – which are perfect for the alleviation of pain and fever (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quinine). Peruvian Bark or Poor Man’s Quinine was used as a cheap way of treating fever and early on as a major treatment for Malaria.
Ascanio was also fascinated by spiders web. In particular – its elasticity, tensile strength and antimicrobial properties (which keep it safe from bacteria and fungi). But he had no idea how it worked. The natural world remained a constant source of intrigue and inspiration for Ascanio and he took that inspiration into his young adult life.
He went on to follow in his fathers footsteps, studying medicine at theRoyal University of Turin in Italy and in 1832 graduated as a surgeon. His great love however was not surgery but teaching. So, naturally he went on to do his PhD. In 1835, he presented his thesis (in latin) on nerve function and the characteristics of nerves in various diseases. But his application for a doctor of philosophy was declined, apparently as a result of certain in house jealousies. His thesis had already met with favourable review from numerous medical professors in Europe but he could not convince those at the University of Turin to accept it. Ascanio was naturally very upset and abandoned his studies of medicine, never to return to his field of expertise or his interest in teaching medicine/physiology.
A short time later, Ascanio (perhaps under the influence of his father or uncle), began studying and researching chemistry under his Uncle Baron Carl Raphael Sobrero – who was then director of the Chemical Laboratory of the Arsenal of Turin. After a few years of study and research, he developed a strong background in chemistry. Ascanio then travelled to Paris, where he worked in the laboratory of Theophile-Jules Pelouze (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Th%C3%A9ophile-Jules_Pelouze). Ascanio soon began experimenting with adding certain forms of nitric acid to organic substances. His love of plants and nature, had returned to his work in chemistry.
In 1845 Ascanio returned to teach chemistry at the University of Turin and became a professor of chemistry in 1848. Then, from 1860-1882 he taught and researched chemistry at the School of Applied Engineering. During his time as a researcher, Ascanio discovered a whole host of new chemical compounds – including Nitroglycerin, Mannitol Hexanitrate, Sobrerol, Quajacolo, Tetrachloride and Sodium Sulfur Colloid. Ascanio discovered that Nitroglycerin was a powerful vasodilator, which was later refined by Russian chemist Nikolay Zinin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikolay_Zinin) (who also tutored the young Alfred Nobel) and used by Dr William Murrell (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Murrell) in 1878 to treat heart conditions (angina pectoris and chronic heart failure). Nitroglycerin was also a powerful explosive, which would eventually replace black powder (gun powder) as the worlds most potent explosive. Realising it’s potential as an explosive, Ascanio remained silent about his discovery for more than a year. Ascanio had even hurt himself in an explosion that occurred while he was working with Nitroglycerin and so he was very weary of promoting his discovery. After his injury, he tried to discourage anyone from using it as an explosive. But he had made the mistake of sharing his discovery with several colleagues, including Alfred Nobel – also a student of Theophile-Jules Pelouze. Ascanio had little interest in money, power or success and so he did not think to patent his discovery. But Alfred Nobel did. He and his brother found a way to stabilise Nitroglycerin and together created the Dynamit Nobel AG company, using Nitroglycerine as the active ingredient in Dynamite and Gelignite. Nitroglycerin would also be used as an active ingredient in solid propellants such as Cordite and Ballistite. Alfred and his brother focussed on developing Dynamite, Gelignite and Cordite as powerful explosives for the construction, mining and demolition industries. Alfred acknowledged Ascanio as the discoverer of Nitroglycerin and supposedly even provided Ascanio with a pension, as a kind of compensation.
Despite Nitroglycerine being used for a purpose that Ascanio’s condemned, his other discoveries, although not as significant, were also of great importance. Mannitol Hexanitrate was also found to be a powerful vasodilator and hypotensive agent and explosive, that was considerably safer than Nitroglycerine. Guajacolo became an important antiseptic/analgesic/balsemic/expectorant for treating lung diseases. Sobrerol became a major mucolytic drug (clearing mucous in the respiratory system) and kick started a whole chain of Mucokinetic drugs. In addition, Ascanio made important discoveries with Tetrachloride and Sodium Sulfur Colloid – which became another important medical drug used in the treatment of acute illness and chronic disease. Ascanio also did significant work on fermentation, which influenced the work of Louis Pasteur (father of vaccination and pasteurisation (heat treatment as a means of preserving food).
Despite Asacanio’s discovery of the worlds most potent explosive, he focussed all of his research on chemical substances that would benefit human health. Many of his discoveries have become our most important medical drugs. They have made invaluable contributions to medical research, pharmacology and human health. We can only imagine how many people’s lives have been saved with Nitroglycerin alone ! His drugs have also made many people very wealthy !
During his life, Ascanio had friendships with many of the great scientists of Europe, cultivating close relationships with scientists in France, Germany, Italy and Russia. He was a member of the Italian Academy of Science and as a scientist he was revered for his intellect and his kindness. He was by all accounts, a man of great modesty, who was gentle and caring. He was above all, considered to be one of the great gentlemen of science in his day. He was a brilliant scientist and a master chemist. He was to chemistry, what Galleo had been to physics. As a man, he was driven by a desire to do good for the world, which compelled him to work in cooperation with people from many different fields. He was a student and above all a teacher. A man who loved teaching and igniting the curiosity of his students.
It must be remembered that Ascanio worked as a scientist, at a time of great conflict. He lived at a time that witnessed the French Revolution, The Franco Prussian War, The Crimean War, The American Civil War, part of The Spanish Wars of Independence, The Mexican War of Independence, The Venezuelan War of Independence, The Peruvian War of Independence, the last of the Napoleonic Wars, The Brazilian War of Independence, The Java War, Liberal Wars, Opium Wars, The Italian Wars of Independence, The Hungarian War of Independence, The Apache Wars and other Indian Wars, The Ten Years War and dozens more wars. In his time, there was no such thing as peace. It was an era of great expansion and the dispossession of native people all over the world. People everywhere were seeking wealth, at any cost. Some millionaires came from families with money and others came from families with nothing. These self made men were determined and ambitious. Many of them were uneducated but some of them came with the finest educations in Europe and America. Collectively they created the greatest industrial empires that the world had ever seen. Many of them, were empires that spanned the globe. One such empire, was the empire created by Alfred Nobel and his Dynamit Nobel AG company.
And while Alfred enjoyed great success with the development of his company. It is ironic, that later in life he lost a major court case, when a British company supposedly infringed upon one of his explosive patents. It is also ironic, that a couple of months before Alfred died in 1896, he was prescribed Nitroglycerin for his weak heart.
Ascano did not admit to his discovery of Nitroglyecrin publicly until near the end of his life. He was so appalled by the destruction that it brought to the Earth, that he dared not speak about his discovery with any sense of pride or satisfaction. He died in Turin on the 26th May, 1888, of heart trouble. Ascanio was so busy trying to help other people, that he had ignored his own health. Most likely, he probably didn’t have his own supply of Nitroglycerin. As a chemist, he was the modern equivalent of a shaman. An alchemist who used his gift for good, rather than evil. But he was ultimately unable or unwilling to save himself.
Unfortunately Ascanio Sobrero is just a foot note in the annals of history and in the history of Nitroglycerin and explosives but in my view, he is one of the great heroes on the last 200 years. But few people if any, know of him. The website of the Nobel Peace Prize has a page dedicated to him; there is a whole room dedicated to him at the Museum of Natural Sciences in Monaco; and a short street in Turin is named after him.

A few days after my journey with this story began, I went back to Rachel and asked her how she had come to know the story of Ascanio and how he’d become Dude’s friend. She looked me in the eye for a minute and began pulling at her fingers. She always did that when she was uncomfortable. And then she turned away and said “Sometimes something bad would happen at home and Dude would come to visit me. I’d be crying and I’d tell him how unfair life is and he’d just listen. He didn’t say a word. And then once, when I had finished crying, he told me a story about a man who knew all about what was fair and what was unfair. And when he was finished, I stopped complaining about how unfair my life was. And I never complained any more” Rachel had grown up in a terrible environment, with a mother who was a violent alcoholic and a father who was a workaholic. She had learned from an early age that she had to take care of herself, if she was going to survive. But Dude had been there for her since she was 4 years old – when he walked up to her in her backyard (while she was playing in her sandpit with her plastic animals) and began to play with her.
When Dude told Rachel the story of Ascanio, he didn’t take away her suffering but he gave her just enough understanding, wisdom and experience, to help her to cope. She was a child prodigy, who had the heart of an innocent child and the mind of an adult. She could see what others twice her age could not see. But she couldn’t see a way out of her situation. That day, Dude gave her exactly what she needed, to help her understand that life isn’t fair but it is what it is and sometimes you have to accept life as it is.
* * *
In part two I’ll discuss a little about Dude’s relationship with Ascanio and how Dude decided to intervene in the life of one man to help alleviate his suffering and how that choice changed the fate of the world as we know it. I’ll discuss a little about the link between Ascanio’s discovery and the formation of the military-industrial complex. Finally I’ll discuss how Dude and other ETs engineer time lines for the best possible outcome for any given species.
While much of part one of this story can be discovered by anyone who bothers to do a little research, part two of this story will help you to see that some mysteries simply dissapear from history. It’s my privilege to bring a little of Ascanio’s story back to life and to help you to understand the true nature of the ETs who care for our planet.
Hey folks, here’s an old article I posted on Project Avalon Forum a few years ago. I thought it might resonate with some of you.
* * *
I want to share some thoughts with you about a subject which is very uncomfortable for many people to contemplate – especially those of you who live in the USA. I am by nature a very optimistic and compassionate person but I am also not afraid to see how the world really works and I tend to take notice of certain trends. So this subject is coming from that place – that part of me who is curious about the world at large.
I first began thinking about a second American Civil war in 1989 when I was studying science and I became friends with a Canadian exchange student, who spent a great deal of time talking about what was wrong with America’s Foreign Policy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_policy_of_the_United_States). I hadn’t really thought much about it before then – except for the impact of a potential nuclear war (I was the guy who wrote an essay on it and did a class presentation in high school – scaring the crap out of all my class mates). Later in 1994 I spoke more about the issue of a civil war with my girl friend. At that stage she didn’t think it was likely to happen, on account of the preparations that had been made by the worlds power structures. Back then I knew little about what I would later come to know as The Architecture. So anyway, the issue has floated in and out of my head since then and in 2006 I began to consider that it might be a real possibility.
When I first began exploring the possibility of a major solar event more than a decade ago, I was also told by someone that back in the early 80’s, a new currency had been planned to replace the $US. I suspected that this was a way of steam rolling the escalating debt. I wondered what else was being orchestrated to fit with with a possible solar event.
In 2006 it became very clear to me that there were numerous possible events that might coalesce under one event. These being :
- An unsustainable rise in population (and proportionate fall in biodiversity).
- Covert planning for slow culling of the ageing population (think paid Euthanasia, back van weapons targeting those with heart disease etc.) and specific populations (think lower socio-economic groups and people with high health care needs).
- The replacement of the $US.
- Major race and religious riots and riots against government.
- A major solar event and subsequent loss of the power grid and all infrastructure.
Of course we could take any one of these events and see them as catalysts for a major internal national event.
Now 8 years later I have a much better understanding of how The Architecture works and how the subtle structure of The Architecture is integrated into every aspect of modern life (particularly modern American life). There has been a definite coalescence of issues. And collectively they are acting to transform how humanity functions. The most significant issues may yet be on the horizon. What I see is this :
- There are major plans to reduce the population in gross and subtle ways (personally I think it’s necessary but I don’t agree with the methods – I might well be a supporter of the Georgia Guide Stones !). There really is a major population issue. The key issue is the impact that human numbers are having on biodiversity and ecosystems and planetary health (non global warming related issues).
- The American government has only a handful of ways out of it’s current debt :
- Cull the population and specifically reduce the budren of Medicare (and those who create the greatest Medicare burden), which if not amended will totally collapse in 1-2 decades.
- Print more money and risk hyper inflation.
- Print more unaccountable money to support the lower arms of The Architecture and in so doing create lots of business and employment for the military industrial complex – which in turn will help keep the economy buoyant.
- Prepare to replace the $US and completely transform financial systems beyond what is currently recognized as a democratic capitalist state.
- Those who are really in power are laying the plans for a new social model, which emulates other social systems which were successful for those in power – such as the Indian Caste System, Stalinist Socialism, Mussolini’s National Fascism, Huxley’s Brave New World, Blair’s 1984 and so on. Just which system has been developed as a model is unclear but it has all the hallmarks of integrating the best and worst of every totalitarian/authoritarian system (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Totalitarianism / http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Authoritarianism ) known to man. It may well be much more subtle in some ways, than we can ever imagine – which giving the appearance of encouraging freedom and human rights.
- The Architecture is well entrenched and the lower arms (the insidious part) will be almost impossible to dismantle, while ever it is linked to geopolitics, profit, employment and livelihood.
- The lower arms of The Architecture is using a wide range of methods to shape internal US geopolitics and demographic politics.
- Those in power know that a major external event is on the horizon. They know this because in the early to mid 80’s they used naturally gifted psychics to look into the future and create probable future profiles spanning many thousands of years (think recent references to FUTURE WARFARE which have been all to easily dismissed). Since then, I suspect they have used other psychics and remote viewers to double check the future. The most likely event (and the one that I was shown) is a catastrophic solar event. Those in power could have taken widespread preparations to fit the appropriate capacitors to vulnerable transformers or build standby transformers en masse but they haven’t. Why ? I suspect because a major solar event will :
- Naturally cull the population.
- Help shift geopolitics that would otherwise take decades.
- Help those in power to reshape the social structure.
- Facilitate the implementation of a new currency in the US and a restructure of financial infrastructures.
- Help in the implementation of future population control policies.Catastrophic events are a natural part of Earth’s existence. The fact that such an event could result in the death of many, is an unfortunate side effect.
Anyway that’s a brief overview of what I see. Now to explain how that links to a new American Civil War.
First let me ask you a few questions. How do you define civil ? How do you define war ? How do you define civil war ? How do you define civil disobedience ? The answers to these questions underscore the possibility of a Second American Civil War. But consider this. Those in power have tried to answer these questions and as a result have more than likely developed strategic, operational and tactical plans (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strategic_planning / http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tactical_objective / http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_strategy / http://usarmy.vo.llnwd.net/e2/rv5_downloads/info/references/army_strategic_planning_guidance.pdf / http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_military_tactics ) to address how these answers relate to the maintenance of their current structure and addressing the their own key priorities. What the civilian population lacks overall, is a sense of the planning that has already been done regarding the threat of a civil war or civil disobedience. But what those in power lack is the unpredictability and uncertainty element of individual people, groups and systems in how they will respond to specific events and interventions.
But no doubt, those in power (in and out of the lower arms of The Architecture) are learning all the time. Movements like the Occupy movement and the Arab Spring, provided those in power with the perfect opportunity to study humans, systems and society and get a better handle on what was once considered ”a loose variable” – human unpredictability. In many ways Occupy came at the perfect time and provided those in power with the opportunity to tests the weaknesses of some of their plans. You know the adage “A plan is only as good as it’s weakest link.”.
So in addition to defining what these terms mean, it’s clear that those in power continue to update and create new plans to deal with future events. Such strategic, operational and tactical plans also include methods for shaping internal geopolitics, demo-politics, initiating events and shaping events . How for example would the American public know when a civil disobedience event was orchestrated and when it was genuine ? Such methods have been used for thousands of years. Is it little wonder that China produced The Art of War http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Art_of_War, given the methods it had been using since before the first dynasty ? And what if such an event was used as a single step in an unfolding strategic plan (with many steps) to catalyze the implementation of a new social system ? And how for example would the American public know if an internal event based on defending a basic human or constitutional right, was orchestrated or genuine ? America has already been hoodwinked by 911. And although many people get it now, few were in the know before 2001. What other attempts to defend human rights have concealed a hidden agenda ? The civil rights movement ? Feminism ? Pro abortion, pro choice ? The rights of refugees ? The protection of biodiversity ? Anything can be used to conceal an ulterior motive and very few people ever really see !
It is clear to me, that the shaping of the American mind (and the same is true of most nations in general), fits within a well planned, well orchestrated, well thought out strategy to redefine what it is to be an American citizen. The tools of those in power (in and out of The Architecture) span everything from religion, medicine, food, science, academia, education, healthcare, agriculture, pharmacology, mental health, financial management, work, sport, entertainment, the internet and a wide range of other systems and aspects of modern life. Americans are in the system whether they like it or not. But freedom is always just a heartbeat away !
So it is almost impossible for any American to know if what they see and experience is what it appears to be. The ability to distinguish between orchestrated and genuine events is widely diminished and conspiracy theorists from every variety add confusion and chaos to the healthy mind.
So it maybe impossible to say how or what a new American Civil War might look like before during or after. But we can speculate why it might happen. It might happen because :
- Those in power orchestrate key events in key places.
- The populace loses complete faith in it’s government.
- The populous is conditioned to choose sides over the divisive issues of race, religion, foreign and domestic policies, constitutional or human rights.
- The populace grows tired of a push for a one world government.
- Conspiracy grows disproportionately to reality and becomes a catalyst for widespread dissension and civil disobedience across a range of issues in many different places.
- A single profound truth or untruth grows like wildfire across the internet, invigorating widespread civil disobedience.
- The man at the core of Anonymous reveals precious information about plans the lower arms of The Architecture are about to foist on the American public.
- The rapid development of a novel Pandemic/Epidemic across the American continent.
- The complete collapse of the financial sector and the flow on effects throughout the American nation – including the collapse of many systems and the food supply system.
- The over extension of American Foreign Policy into one too many wars (e.g. another Gulf War) and the subsequent death of thousands of soldiers and civilians.
- The continuation or development of widespread natural disasters (e.g. drought, colony collapse disorder etc.) that widely diminish food and/or water supplies or a sharp rise in prices of food, water and other essential commodities.
- A major solar event which collapses the power grid and subsequent essential infrastructures.
- A powerful EMP attack on America which also collapses the power grid.
Secession of one or several states from the union, as a result of federal or state bankruptcy or any number of the above.
No doubt there are many other reasons why a Second American Civil War might start. My money is on some kind of social contagion that is orchestrated at the beginning. I suspect that if it were to happen, the solar event will not be long in tow. But who knows, maybe neither will ever happen !
One thing is for sure, that if there is a Second American Civil War, it will not be south against north or fought just with guns. And unless some of the right wing ultra conservatives or neo Nazis gain power, it will have nothing to do with traditional slavery. It will however have everything to do with other interpretations of slavery ! So even though we can’t say what it might look like, we can speculate about who might be engaged in such a war. Here are some possibilities :
- Everyone or anyone against each other.
- Christians vs non Christians.
- The people vs the government (ain’t the people the guv’n’ment ?).
- States vs state or State vs state.
- Crazy people vs less crazy people.
- The people vs the military.
- Alex Jones vs the guv’n’men.
- Alex Jones vs The Reptilians.
- The haves vs the have nots.
- Children vs parents (I like this one).
- The government vs the government.
- The government and the people vs the government.
- Veterans vs whoever they feel like.
- Bikies against whoever they feel like.
I mean honestly, is it at all possible to accurate forecast who will fight who ? How can we possibly decide who will be at war and define who is the enemy ? If you fight and beat the government, you still need a government later on to help run the country. And for every evil man you replace, there are 10,000 who would like to take his place.
So perhaps now more than ever, a new civil war is on the cards but I’ll be damned if I can understand the logic of any of it. My sense is that what we are seeing is an unfolding a very old pattern in the development of human societies. The occasional outburst of turbulence (war and civil disobedience) is logically inevitable, when the populace lacks self awareness and when mankind overall is driven by fear and emptiness and an attachment to things that are impermanent. A new civil war may well be on the cards for the making of a new America. But if it does happen, what could this new America look like ?
Will it be a $USA Inc. 2.0 with more pretense of what appears to be democracy ? Or will it be $USA Inc. 1.0, where every citizen complies and behaves under the watchful eye of a Robocop like system of authority ? Or will it be $USA Inc. 1.0, where every citizen is given the illusion of democracy, while being shaped and molded (a softer version of the previous but closer to a soft version of Huxley’s Brave New World or Blairs’ 1984). Will it be a fairer America that continues to expand democratically, pull it’s foreign policy head in and begins to create a more just and loving society ? Or will it be an America that returns to an agrarian age or a type of Agrarian Socialism because that’s how it will support the elite or because it sees it as a better option ?
America is such a diverse country with an incredible history, that almost anything is possible ! But my suspicion is that the future of the American experiment has been planned. What remains to be seen is whether or not a Second American Civil War is part of that plan or if the unpredictable element will alter those plans.
Thank god I live in Australia !
Those in power long ago, thanks to their psychic profilers, recognized that Australia offered many unique opportunities for a new kind of social experiment. The key difference is that we do not have the right to bear arms. As a social experiment of the British, we began as a penal colony by dispossessing our first people of their land. We were on the whole, more of a dumping ground, than many countries. And that has surprisingly made all the difference to the long term development of the democratic model. But Australia is not Scott free of problems. We too have huge social and environmental problems. But unlike America, our constitution (despite it’s lack of address towards human rights) does not recognize the right to bear arms. The right to bear arms is in many ways the Achilles Heal of American democracy – a thorn to both government and citizens. In addition we have a small population relative to our land mass and are close to Asia – both of which have completely altered our experiment with democracy.
America is both a wonderful model for the human social experiment and a model for how not to do things. The retaliation and hostility from many non Christian nations is sometimes morally justified. What is lacking is human compassion for the ordinary citizens of America.
There is no perfect model for how human societies should function and there never has been. Bhutan has a pretty good model but it is an isolated country that has done a good job of keeping tight boundaries. And it has many challenges ahead of it.
America remains both the crossroads of the human social experiment and the greatest prophet for the collective human future. However America’s future plays out, it will effect all of us in many different ways.
Whatever happens, all is good. This is ”the best of all possible worlds” to quote a certain well known French man ! All that happens in the American future has it’s place and will ultimately help our descendants to be a happier, healthier species and lay the foundation for humans to be fully embraced by our cosmic family.
All civil wars are a really just a revolution of sorts. The greatest American Revolution is the revolution of the heart. The revolution that will never end.
