In Donald Trump’s latest speech in Florida he claims by default to be the leader of a movement to end the corrupt political establishment in the US.
Is this true? It’s a fair question, and so far all opinions are nothing but a guess.
He is certainly hitting the hearts of many, not just in America. Any person who has begun even a mediocre investigation into the reality of the current state of world affairs knows that the corporate media is a tool of ‘belief control’ which will not inform you of many truths, including that the US and many other governments have been hijacked by “global special interests”, as Trump puts it.
Put simply, the banksters and the corporate oligarchs have turned the system into a corporatocracy, where those with the money and power control the direction of governmental policy and procedure. In stride, the money supply, banking and a plethora of other vital public infrastructure have been stolen from the people and used to further enrich the thieves who took it from us.
This is why the tens of millions of people across the planet who have woken up to the disgraceful state of our social system are salivating when it comes to the potential of actual, real change. Many have already thrown their full support behind Trump – including many voices in the independent media – yet is this just playing into another divide and conquer strategy designed by the ruling class?
It might be, it might not. The powers-that-will-no-longer-be don’t deserve any extra credit, which is one reason why its not wise to assume anything at this stage. It may just be that the Donald is the real deal who is truly in this fight for the people of his country (and by default the rest of the world), but on the other hand he might be just another pawn in the game of global governance.
Now before I go on with how we’ll know for sure, let me just say for all the people who hate Trump because of whatever big word you’d like to use to describe him, is it based in truth or just some opinion you heard? Obviously the mainstream media are clearly colluding to destroy his character, so you can’t trust them, but even some of the independent media have been sucked onto the Trump hate-train.
We really can’t blame them though; Trump may have refined himself in recent months, but he did start off using language and an approach that concerned any heart-centered man or woman.
Now I’m not saying he isn’t without fault. As should be abundantly clear by now, I’m not a Trump fan, nor am I a Trump hater. I simply want what’s best for the people and the environment, and if a somewhat narcissistic and brainwashed person such as Trump is one man out of many who can help that cause, I like so many others, would like to know.
Here’s my disclaimer though: it’s not Trump or anyone else who’s going to save us from social and environmental destruction, only a united populace can do that. We always have the ultimate Trump card, with or without Donald, because we have the numbers. It really is that simple.
However, that doesn’t mean that individuals don’t play a role, so let’s consider in terms of action whether Trump really is an authentic man who aims to bring back some sort of life back to the dying freedom that the US once stood for.
Of course if he is serious in his stated agenda he couldn’t disclose his full strategy, otherwise it would put the ignorant offside. For example, one of his primary goals should be to implement massive electoral reform to ensure that the democrat/republican two party illusion of choice is dissolved so that independent candidates represent their electorate, and external money is removed from politics entirely.
Considering that he has been shunned by his own party I’m assuming that wouldn’t be too difficult for him, but would the millions of Americans who deeply identify with their party be okay with this?
Probably not. They’d have an immediate mid-life crisis in response.
So it’s understandable why Trump needs to be relatively quiet about certain things before he gets into office. That also includes the entire Israel/Zionist issue that is a high matter of importance among the truth-seekers. The other reality is that this guy is far from perfect and will not have all the answers, so we cannot expect him to touch on every area that is important to every person.
Regardless, there’s some pretty straight-forward paths that we need to take. If the Trump card is truly owned by the people, then Donald will have no problem with undertaking the following actions:
- As mentioned, electoral reform needs to occur to bring some sort of democracy back to reality (see my previous article for a strategy put forward by ex-CIA officer Robert David Steele)
- A systematic investigation into any laws and regulations which undermine the constitution;
- A genuinely independent investigation into 911 and the role certain factions of the US government has in funding and supporting terrorist outfits such as ISIS;
- Recreating an honest and debt-free money supply;
- Disassemble the Federal Reserve;
- End the socially destructive war on drugs (see my previous article if you’re ignorant as to why);
- Investigate the sellout of science and medicine to the pharmaceutical monopolies; and
- Massive banking, education, media and tax reforms.
I wouldn’t even bother writing this article if so many people weren’t supporting Trump, including many in the independent media. My hope is that any person or alternative media organization who supports him consider these issues before they truly believe he is a proponent of the revolution that has been bubbling beneath the surface for many decades.
Yet there are many people who write off any hope of using the system against itself. Given that many political and social revolutions have occurred innumerable times in our history, I wouldn’t be so quick to rule out someone like Trump actually bringing about some serious change. But once again – and I cannot emphasize this enough – the people have the ultimate Trump card, so don’t you forget it.
But getting back to the cartoon character of the Donald, as previously described it is understandable if he doesn’t touch on all the above issues prior to coming into office, that’s if he makes it. But if he does, the people need to hold him accountable according to these gold standards.
Anything less would be another false revolution.
In any case, Trump has positioned himself as the mouthpiece of the disenfranchised and struggling people of America. I want to once again make it clear that he still could be a tool of psy-opery employed by the very people that he verbally condemns, but if he isn’t, his recent speech in Florida on the 13th of October 2016 will go down as one of the greatest and courageous moves made by an individual to bring back some sort of sanity and honor to our fast-decaying world.
If he’s the real deal, JFK would be high-fiving his soul right now.
For your own research purposes, the embedded video is a five minute highlight of his speech. A link to the full speech is also included in its description.

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?

This Clever & Controversial Artwork Will Help You Think Deeper About Society
True artists are what I view as the antithesis of entertainers…
You see, an entertainer is concerned with popular opinion and giving the public what it wants to see. They intoxicate us with mindless amusements to help us escape reality and the everyday stresses of life. But artists, on the other hand, they give us what we need to see; by challenging us to to think deeper about the nature of reality, and the society in which we live, and they do this through the transcendent language of art.
With that said, I decided to collect some of the most thought provoking artwork from around the internet and offered my own little commentary on them…
