“I have sworn upon the altar of god, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” — Thomas Jefferson
When someone mentions “The New World Order,” it conjures up thoughts of conspiracy involving the Illuminati, the Freemasons, Skull and Bones, old privileged family wealth and royal lineage. Beneath that you might think of the already bought and paid for world leaders and the secret agenda. And you might be right.
When I think of the New World Order, I’m thinking of an idea and it’s an idea that’s as old as war itself. How many times must we keep hearing this same ideology? Every single empire from the beginning of man had this same dream. You know the one: Controlling everything beneath the sky from horizon to horizon.
Nothing has changed in thousands of years except the horizons and the dreamers. When all you could see was the Aztec Empire, then controlling that was good enough. When all anyone could see was the Roman Empire, then that was enough. Then the Spanish saw the horizons of a New World! But when we got to Hitler, he saw all the horizons of the Earth. To the Nazis, that would be enough. Now we hear this same language coming from the President of the US and other world leaders. Then the talk about bases on the moon or Mars as we hear today from Russia and China and talk of the New World Order from the US and Europe. You have to admit it sounds all too familiar.
What’s the difference who says it, if the meanings of the words are the same? Did the populations of Rome, Spain, Germany or the Aztecs think they were any better off as they were conquering other lands? Not if you were in Germany and you were Jewish, Polish, English, Russian or any other non-German. Let’s not forget, that the Germans were the superior race – everyone else was inferior. Even then they were whittling that down with phrenology (the shape of the skull) to include only certain facial structure types. In my opinion, the NAZIs use of phrenology was the direct result of the American eugenics movement of the 1930s. It stemmed from the case of 17 year old Carrie Buck vs Bell 1927. Her case reached the Supreme Court where she was ordered sterilized to protect society from a generation of imbeciles. Although she was an honor student who was raped by her foster brother they cut her fallopian tubes. At the time there was a statute which stated that the state could perform compulsory sterilization of the unfit.
The one thing that most Empires had in common was that the good life was set aside for an elite few. So when you hear the same rhetoric coming from the leaders of the free world, don’t worry because that’s different. We are Americans and we don’t discriminate. We’ll unite the entire world and everyone will follow us. We’ll have one president and of course he’ll be from America. Even if he isn’t, America will still be in control. We do after all know what’s in the best interest of the rest of the world. These ideas stem from the 19th century belief called “Manifest Destiny.” It is the belief that the US was the Promised Land willed by God to the early settlers who were preordained to dominate the Americas. The belief in “American Exceptionalism” continues to this day and that somehow it’s God’s will that we control others. How can anyone argue with God?
Note here that Russia has fairly recently left the G-8 – now called the G-7. So there are tensions between the NATO nations and Russia which were once all considered by most outside observers to be core nations of the New World Order. What is exposed here is just how fragile these one world government concepts are. With the US-European Union alliance always wanting to run the show through domination, this is an example of calamity. What we end up with is arrogance on steroids.
In their study paper titled “US Electromagnetic Weapons and Human Rights.” By Peter Philips, Lew Brown and Bridget Thornton they wrote as part of “The Sonoma State University Project Censored Media Freedom Foundation”:
“We are in a time of extremism, permanent war, and the unilateral manifestation of ethnocentrism and by a cabal of people in the US government. These power elites have been in operation for decades and are set on nothing less than the total US military domination of the world. They defy the foundational values of the American people to achieve their ends. This is nothing new. The repression of human rights has been present within the US government throughout our history.” They continue: “A long thread of sociological research documents the existence of a dominant ruling class in the US that sets policy and determines national political priorities.”
Do I really believe that this is the agenda of some near and outdated pro New World Order enthusiasts? Well of course I do. Do I believe they’ll succeed? In my “OWN” humble opinion, NO! It’s not because the good people won’t go along with it, it’s the masses that won’t. They might as well target most of the world because the ones who are writing about the abuses are speaking for most of the ones remaining silent or who still don’t know. Not everyone is living harmoniously in American suburbia. If you are, then the world is such a beautiful place for you. Most of the rest of the world doesn’t live the good life in homogenous suburban America
There will not be a “New World Order” – at least not the one purportedly being plotted. Besides, where would all the conscientious objectors go? I mean, currently they could go to any number of neutral countries and be granted safe haven. Some well-known people like Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald and Julian Assange have done just that. But where would you go if the entire world were ruled by a one world government? That in itself precludes the NWO from realizing its own existence. The people would never accept that there would be no escape and it is after all a world of the masses.
It harkens me back to something I was reading by Philosopher, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. It’s the idea of “Thesis-Antithesis-Synthesis” and although it’s credited to him, he credits it to Immanuel Kant. The translation of this is debatable with some saying it’s actually “Thesis-Antithesis-Whole. I kind of like “Thesis-Antithesis-Synthesis” myself, because it reminds me of the logic and writing style of Charles Fort. His writing is difficult to understand at times and you sometimes wonder if he’s really being serious. Also his thinking is circular and as Fort would put it, “a circle leads to nowhere.” Although Hegel lived before Fort his detractors also complained that his writing was too difficult to understand. So even though his contributions to philosophy were very influential throughout the world, other philosophers said he didn’t make any sense. After much of my own reading, I have to agree that he is very difficult to follow but it isn’t just Hegel, much of philosophical writing is.
This however leads us to my point. It was the French Revolution that I was reading about. Thesis = (French Revolution), antithesis = (the Reign of Terror that followed), synthesis = (the Constitutional state of free citizens). Now to me this was the battle formula to freedom. My problem with that is as Fort would put it, “nothing-something = something-nothing.” It’s a constant state of becoming something else in an ever evolving universe. Nothing is the same from moment to moment, there’s only the appearance of sameness relative to the passing of time.
So, is a rock a rock or is it compressed dirt? Before it was a rock it was dirt and after it erodes it will be dust. So is it dirt a rock or dust? It all depends on what it is at the time you look at it. Although objects give us the illusion of sameness from moment to moment, they are undergoing perpetual change. Everything is always on its way to becoming something else. A seed becomes a seedling, to a tree, to decompose back to the soil. So again is it a seed or is it soil? It’s neither and it’s both. It is in a particular state at the particular time that it is being observed.
With everything in a constant state of evolution, how long could the NWO actually hold on to power? This was attempted before in Nazi Germany and the dream of the “Thousand Year Reich” lasted 12 years. So in my opinion the idea of The New World State would be the catalyst or seeds to its own demise. But then where would we go from there? The old Soviet Union broke up. I suppose we could build great walls around all the inner-cities then call it a “prison planet.”
However there would be conscientious objectors and many would be your neighbors. What would we do about them? If there were no safe haven for dissenters, everything would be clandestine. Everyone opposed to a one world government would not go to the polls, they would go underground. This would of course create sub-societies or sub-cultures of resistance groups. This would also inevitably be the downfall of such a government. It would lead to class war and every other socio-economic backlash responsible for the downfall of empires throughout history.
Capitalism which has actually become “predatory capitalism” here in the US will fare no better. Marxism when mentioned spins people’s heads but paints a pretty accurate picture of capitalism as a usurious system based on classism. The entire structure is based on de-facto slave labor. Realistically a worker enters into a voluntary contract with an employer to work for wages. However the employer holds all the power because the worker needs that job to feed his family and can’t simply quit. Yet capitalism is organized to keep the balance in favor of the employers. The US’s “Great Depression” of the 1920s and 30s is a great example of the imbalance. An employer could control his workers with old style abuse. The workers needed the job more than the employer needed them and people expected to work for 20 years at that job.
The fact that so many influential elitists believe these ideas are a plausible solution to our planet’s problems is more about a desire for greater control than a concern for any types of societal structures. And I know this how? I know this, because I am one of those people. I am not one of those born into an elite and fortunate club left alone to live freely. Nor one who went to Yale because my father and grandfather did. I’m not one of those born with the silver spoon – groomed to someday inherit the earth because of the womb from which I dropped. I am the other son. I am the one who was not the “fortunate son,” but the flotsam of humanity washed ashore by the waves of time and chance. I represent “possibility, not probability.”
The same waves that carried all of humanity through a possibility of existence are the same ones that carried me to this existence, to this time, into this phenomenal world. So now I’m here to say that I am no one of any significance and I am everyone of no significance. This circular thinking as Descartes, Fort, Hegel and even me is what makes up this circular world. The masses if you will.
I am only the average American living in a country made up of average Americans. I’m nobody and yet everybody, just one of the whole of averages. However, although as an individual, I am me. I would have to say I am also all of you. I don’t represent all of you and nor do I dare subscribe to that supposition, but I represent me, which no matter what you think about that, I have enough in common with any common man.
No matter what your opinion I have come to find that there are others who think exactly like you. So when I say that I am me, I mean, that I am the common man. The common man who may seem powerless by himself but the common man is America. Is America powerless? And then is the common man in America “powerless?”
Long ago when I was three I remember some construction workers discussing JFK’s assassination. I was in my yard next door and I picked up a dime from the ground – it was in New Haven. As I grew older, I thought about that day and how any man has the power to change the course of history with the flip of a coin. I thought that Lee Harvey Oswald whether acting alone or not changed history. Then I started to think, who was Lee Harvey Oswald? He was a no one and anyone. Anyone with the inclination therefore in this world, has the ability to change history. Anyone can become an assassin or a serial killer if they were so inclined. The ability then to alter the course of history has no more to do with the womb from which you dropped than it does with the lineage of blood that runs through your veins.
It is not a count of the number of the wave by which washed you upon the shore of time into the current of existence, of this world. Anyone can grab for a chance to effect change just as easily as anyone else can. Through words like “I had a Dream” or the gun like “The Son of Sam” anyone can stake their claim to history.
If this is so, then you have to decide whether you even care. Is it important to you? If any man can stake a claim to history, then that man has to decide what type of man he wants to be. Leading back to the epic battle between good and evil, what would you choose? If anyone has the ability to change the course of history, would you choose to be Hitler or Gandhi – loathed or loved?
I for one believe this is so! No one is powerless and can choose whether or not to stake a claim to history. The fact is that a position in history is not that important to most people in the world. Most people in the world would be happy to be free to raise their families and eke out a living in peace. Most people in the world would not want to be Gandhi and would most definitely not want to be Hitler! Most people in the world would not even care to be a revolutionist as much as they would care to be poor. Many times our lots in life choose the individual rather than the individual chooses his lot in life. But, when someone wants to make that choice for us, the timeline seems to send us people like Washington, Martin Luther King, Bolivar, Spartacus, Moses and so on…
I myself would rather be remembered as a good man that tried to live a good life rather than be remembered as a bad man who lived an evil life. My biggest evil in life is synthetic, created by a broken government bent on ruling the world and micro managing the population. Does this mean I can’t stay in the suburbs after the One World Government takes over? Did they give you your “SS” number yet? When you read the fine print, we probably each manage to break many laws per year without even knowing it. That’s because we haven’t read the fine print.
The history buffs haven’t read the fine print either otherwise they would remember it. Four days after the declaration of independence was read by Thomas Crafts in Boston, The Boston Committee of Correspondence ordered the townsmen to show up for military draft. The rich however could avoid the draft by paying for substitutes but the commoners and poor had to serve. This led to riots and shouts of “Tyranny is Tyranny let it come from whom it may.”
The entire revolution started over class distinctions and unfairness, how many times are Americans supposed to turn the other cheek? Americans in case you don’t remember, let you push them up until the point where they push back. True patriots throughout history have always been the ones who speak up about tyranny. This led me to write my own slogan for America because although I like my state’s slogan for Connecticut “the Constitution State.” I like New Hampshire’s “Live free or die,” only it’s too forgiving. So the slogan I came up with for America is: “America – Live free or kill.”
Now before any of you war mongers attach yourselves to this, I don’t mean that in a predatory capitalistic sense. I mean that in the sense of individual Americans’ right to live free and America as a whole of individuals defending freedom in more of a Christian sense of “Just War.” Just as in human rights, social and civil justice or the right of the peoples to “justice” as in St. Augustine’s “Just War.”

UK Queen’s Statues Torn Down Amid Anger Over Mass Graves for Indigenous Children
This year may have had one of the most muted Canada Day celebrations, but this didn’t stop Indigenous protesters from making their anger felt – especially in the wake of the discovery of over 1,000 children’s bodies near the residential schools run by the Canadian state and church authorities.
And with churches being likely targeted by arsonists for the crimes of Catholic clergy, protesters are now attacking the symbols of Anglo colonialism – namely, statues of Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.
About 150,000 First Nations children were forcibly separated from their families and communities and forced to attend the religious schools which were established in the 19th century to assimilate Indigenous children into the Anglo settler-colonial culture of Canada.
Former students have testified to the horrific sexual, mental and physical abuse they suffered while enrolled at the schools. Myriad children died from preventable diseases, as well as in accidents and fires. Others disappeared when trying to escape. The Commission has denounced the schools for institutionalizing child neglect and for being organs of “cultural genocide.”
The discoveries have churned up deep-seated anguish and memories of the suffering visited upon First Nations peoples, with many lashing out at the symbols of colonialism.
At least seven churches, all but one of which were Catholic, have also come under apparent arson attacks throughout Canada in recent weeks.
In June, a statue of the late Pope John Paul II at a Catholic church in Edmonton was splattered with red paint and red handprints.
On Thursday, July 1, residents in Canada also held organized protests and pulled down the statues of the top figurehead of British colonialism: Queen Elizabeth II, as well as that of her great grandmother, Queen Victoria. Sky News reports that the toppling of the statues was accompanied by the chant, “No Pride in Genocide!”
In Ottawa, protestors gathered en masse at Parliament Hill chanting ”Cancel Canada Day” and ”shame on Canada,” urging an end to the national holiday over the deaths of Indigenous people.
Indigenous groups and Canadian politicians are demanding an apology from the Catholic Church – specifically Pope Francis. The event could take place by year’s end, according to the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops.
However, it remains unlikely that the British crown will offer the same amends to Canada’s Indigenous nations who, like many across the globe, suffered greatly in British Colonialism’s worldwide search for riches and glory.
3 Reasons Why Introverts Are Undervalued in Today’s Society
It’s undeniable that our society favors assertive extroverted personalities with strong communication skills and underestimates the quiet ones. If you are an introvert, you have probably learned it the hard way.
It could be that you felt unseen in the classroom as a child or teen. Or you may have watched your less competent co-workers get a promotion thanks to their social skills.
It feels unfair, but if you think about our society, it makes perfect sense. The consumerist mindset that has become our second nature inevitably affects the way we treat other people. It seems that everything, including our personal qualities and worth as human beings, is translated into some kind of market value.
In other words, to make other people see your worth in personal or professional life, you need to be able to ‘sell yourself’. Yes, this expression alone tells it all.
You need to know how to make a good first impression, say the right things, and be assertive. If you can’t do it, you are perceived as incapable and uninteresting – whether we are talking about a job interview or an informal social gathering.
But it’s not the only reason why introverts are undervalued in our society. Here are a few more:
1. They are less efficient in teamwork
Communication and teamwork skills are required for all kinds of jobs. It seems that without being able to work in a team, it’s impossible to do your job even if your duties don’t involve interaction with clients.
Introverts are much more efficient when they work on their own and are given a certain extent of independence. They thrive in quiet environments with few distractions and interactions. This is when a quiet person gets the chance to unleash their creative self and make good use of their analytical skills.
Most office jobs don’t give employees this opportunity. Office meetings, group projects, phone calls and all the other attributes of a 9-to-5 job make it almost impossible for an introvert to be productive.
2. They don’t like to be in the spotlight
Sometimes it feels like we are living in a society of attention seekers. Today, you are expected to go public about the most personal matters, such as your relationship and family life.
People share their most intimate thoughts and feelings on social media, post updates about the most trivial events, such as what they had for dinner, and upload countless selfies.
Introverts are among those who still value privacy. They are less likely to showcase their lives online or share the details of their personal affairs with the whole world.
At the same time, the quiet ones don’t like to be in the spotlight at social events. An introvert will never interrupt you. They will listen to you and talk only when they have something important to say. This tendency to avoid attention can be mistaken for insecurity and even a lack of intelligence.
3. They prefer to be real than to be ‘nice’
If you want to make a good impression on others, you are expected to be nice. But what does it mean to be ‘nice’ anyway?
In an introvert’s mind, it equals saying things you don’t mean. Quiet personalities will never bombard you with compliments or say meaningless social pleasantries just to win your fondness. But if an introvert said something nice to you, then be sure that they truly meant it.
Small talk is another component of social relationships most introverts struggle with. To them, it embodies utterly dull, uncomfortable, and pointless conversations they can perfectly do without. For this reason, introverts are often mistakenly believed to hate people.
The truth is that they don’t – they just crave stimulating, meaningful conversations and choose their social circle more carefully than extroverts.
In my book, The Power of Misfits: How to Find Your Place in a World You Don’t Fit In, I write about the reasons why so many introverts feel inadequate and alienated from other people in today’s society. It all goes down to social expectations this personality type has to deal with from a very early age.
But the good news is that every introvert can overcome the negative effects of these expectations and find the right path in this loud, extroverted world.
The Esoteric Meaning Behind Neo’s Interrogation Scene in The Matrix
More than 20 years old now, The Matrix is recognized by fans across the world as being one of the most brilliant films in history, most notably for its deeper meaning and esoteric philosophy.
One scene that is particularly intriguing, considering the social climate of today, is Neo’s interrogation by the Agents of the Matrix.
Now, before we dig into the potential hidden meaning here, as I perceive it, and how Neo found himself in this uncomfortable position to begin with, let’s first establish some key points in relation to the overall story line that will help us to appreciate the implications behind this scene a little bit more.
What Does The Character Neo Represent in the Matrix?
Neo in ancient Greek (νέος) means new/young one. This is an important piece of the puzzle to help us understand what the directors of the film are trying to communicate to us. With that said, when we assess Neo’s character in the first film, we find that he is a solitary individual that keeps to himself and is struggling to find deeper meaning in this world by constantly searching the internet.
What Does The Character Morpheus Represent in the Matrix?
Morpheus in Greek mythology is a messenger of the gods. He appears to humans through dreams with the intention of delivering divine Knowledge and Truth. In the Greek mythos, he can appear in almost any form in people’s dreams, which could be because anyone, regardless of race, gender, or outward appearance, can be a messenger of enlightenment and Truth.
The First Matrix Film is About The Beginning of the Journey to Awakening
With the understanding of the deeper meaning behind what Neo and Morpheus’ characters represent in the film, we can now appreciate the intro scene of Neo sleeping (whilst searching for Morpheus) through a different lens of perception and awareness.
You see, Neo sleeping whilst searching online for Morpheus represents the early stages of the Truth seekers journey — “asleep” but still searching for deeper meaning in life — and hoping to find that meaning by seeking out a “messenger” of higher Knowledge and Truth.
Truth is Terrorism in the Empire of Lies
Through his incessant efforts, Neo begins to get closer and closer to finding the elusive Morpheus. This, however, also attracts the unwanted attention of the Agents in the Matrix, which represent the enforcers of the shadow government of this system. Their job is to ensure that no one exposes what the Matrix really is, and how it turns unsuspecting every day human beings into useful resources that it can use and exploit.
The Agents proceed to apprehend Neo and interrogate him, where they make it very clear that they’ve been spying on him and keeping meticulous records of his activities, both online and offline, for quite some time now. As we all know very well today, all around the world intelligence agencies are doing exactly that — tracking what we view online and keeping meticulous records on many of our movements.
The agents, however, do not see Neo as being a major threat to the Matrix system, as he is still in the early stages of his awakening and does not know enough to be a major threat. Instead, they offer him a deal where they will be willing to “wipe the slate clean” on his illegal activities online, if Neo will simply help them track down the man they call Morpheus, who they claim is “a known terrorist” that is “considered by many authorities to be the most dangerous man alive”.
This represents that the single greatest threat to this manipulative system — which is overwhelmingly ruled by deception and exploitation — is any messenger of higher Knowledge and Truth that can potentially awaken those who are still “asleep” to what the proverbial Matrix really is. In fact, one could argue this sort of power struggle has been going on for thousands of years, and is possibly why Socrates was accused of “corrupting the youth” by the ruling class more than 2,000 years ago and subsequently sentenced to death; or why Fred Hampton was assassinated by government authorities in 1969; or, in more recent history, why civilians that were peacefully protesting against Wall Street and the bankers for their part in destroying the world economy in 2008, were targeted by the FBI and even labelled as potential “domestic terrorists“.
Simply put, Truth is terrorism in the empire of lies.
Neo, still being somewhat naïve and unbegun in his journey, rejects the Agent’s offer and demands he get a phone call because “I know my rights!”
To this, Agent Smith retorts, “tell me Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call if you’re unable to speak?”, which results in Neo’s mouth warping in the most eerie of ways.
This scene represents a lesson that all genuine Truth seekers eventually come to learn — this system is not concerned with human rights nor is it concerned with upholding authentic justice. Instead, it inculcates these beliefs and misperceptions into our minds from a very young age, because it serves to help legitimize its unnecessary existence in the eyes of the unsuspecting public and indoctrinate us as to why we think we need it. But in reality, our government guaranteed “rights” can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye.
In relation to current events, for example, many thousands of people worldwide have been arrested for violating curfew orders; In one Indian state, civilians were told they must take selfies every hour and send it to the authorities to prove that they are staying indoors; in South Africa, some have been fined for not wearing masks while driving their cars; In Boston in the United States, people have even been told that they will be fined if they walk “the wrong direction” down the street; Homeless people in France have reportedly been fined for not staying indoors; Some people have been arrested for attending funerals of loved ones because it violated lockdown orders; Others (including doctors and scientists) have had their right to freedom of speech censored online; In Australia, a pregnant woman was actually arrested in her home for facebook posts that encouraged protesting against the lockdown; According to the International Labor Organization, tens of millions are being pushed into unemployment; and travel all around the world has been severely restricted by these authorities who have taken it upon themselves to be the rulers of this planet by dictating what the rest of us can and cannot do. Whether you agree with these policies or not, these things cannot logically be called “rights” since they are so very easily violated and taken away from us.
There are many other examples that demonstrate how our government given “rights” are more of a comforting illusion than an actual reality, such as the CIA’s secretive Black Site torture programs, which have been done in cooperation with other intelligence agencies and authorities throughout the world. In these programs, people have been kidnapped — without any legal criminal charge or trial — and then taken to undisclosed secret locations where many of them are tortured for many months on end, in ways that are considered to be in violation of international law and basic human rights. The CIA, of course, simply claims they are suspected terrorists. In 2014, however, a Senate Intelligence Committee Report found that at least 26 of the people that were kidnapped and tortured were actually “wrongfully detained”.
Wake Up Neo — You Are the One
Fortunately, Neo manages to escape this unthinkable situation without any serious injury or harm. Soon after, he is contacted by Morpheus, where he is told that he was very lucky that the Agents underestimated his great potential and spared him, because if the Agents had known the great secret that Morpheus knows, then Neo would probably be dead.
Confused by the obvious strangeness of everything taking place, Neo asks Morpheus what the hell is going on, and what exactly is he talking about?? Without hesitation, Morpheus replies to him, “You are the one Neo — You see, you may have spent the last few years looking for me, but I have spent my entire life looking for you.”
This is perhaps the most important lesson the new Truth seeker must eventually come to learn — We are the ones we have been waiting for to change this corrupt world my friends; and we must stop looking for heroes and human leaders to absolve us of this very serious responsibility. Instead, we must all take on the role of Morpheus — which is to awaken as many Neo’s (new minds) as we possibly can, whilst also taking on the role that represents the journey of Neo, by challenging ourselves to become the best version of who we authentically are.
By doing this, we will help to awaken and unleash the unique creative forces of each individual’s problem solving imagination; and we will also find unity in our shared struggle against the injustices, and corruption, of this inhumane system which invariably exploits us all.
If not us, then who? And if not now, then when?
