With a new face on the American empire, people are looking to vent their frustration on this icon: but who is truly responsible for creating tyranny and suffering in this world? What government, corporate, and institutional entities are truly responsible for shaping life to be hell on Earth for our “bottom” class of people, and how do they do it?
Answering this question, “who is morally culpable for degrading our world,” is critical for any person’s understanding of where we are at as a species.
This article will focus on a rarely touched aspect of the power structure: the institutes of technology, the entities of mad science, and these academic institutions that support the military industrial complex.
These schools pioneer science to the benefit of governments, corporations, and the class of people treating us like cattle. They march society on a path that does not benefit our people.
While they have created a wide range of things, from very helpful to incomprehensibly destructive, they fundamentally side with the people who are perhaps most morally culpable for war and human suffering: the state, and “defense” contractors who ally with the state, just to name a few.
According to Wikipedia, an institute of technology is “a type of university which specializes in engineering, technology, Applied Science, and possibly natural sciences.”
This is an introduction to 10 academic institutions who are marching us on a trajectory toward mad science, warfare, human suffering, and profit at the expense of our bottom class of people. Some are not specifically institutes of technology, but are integral parts of the system.
This should serve as a starting point to your own research: with a little digging, one can uncover much more about these foundational structures of what we call “the system.”
1. Carnegie Mellon University (CMU)
Carnegie Mellon University is, and has always been a center of scientific development for the powers that be, since the industrialist Andrew Carnegie founded it in 1900.
Andrew Carnegie was of course the steel magnate who shaped the 19th and 20th Centuries with such influence, his name should ring a bell the same way as the name “Rockefeller.”
Today, this Carnegie institution is in service to the NSA, the US war machine, and other pieces of the power structure.
People educated here often go into the NSA and other government agencies. Grants are made to CMU to develop things for the military industrial complex.
According to a Pittsburgh Business Times article titled “Carnegie Mellon University awarded $250M for new advanced robotics institute”:
“Carnegie Mellon University’s status as a major hub for robotics is getting a huge boost from the U.S. Department of Defense in the form of more than $250 million to start a new advanced robotics manufacturing institute in Pittsburgh.
The DOD announced the award to American Robotics, a nonprofit led by Carnegie Mellon that includes more than 220 industry, government and academic partners throughout the country. The new institute will get $80 million from the DOD and $173 million from partner organizations.”
According to an article from Cyber Scoop:
“These schools offer a myriad of computer security training programs, each providing a stepping stone into the secretive agency. In this context, Carnegie Mellon University is to the NSA what the University of Alabama is to the NFL. And Professor David Brumley is CMU’s Nick Saban.
“As NSA’s Security Education Academic Liaison (SEAL) to Carnegie Mellon University since 2010 and knowing several CMU alumni that work at NSA, the quality of the individual that graduates from CMU is very high. They have made solid contributions to our mission,” said Ryan Agee, an NSA technical director.”
It makes sense that a school bearing the name “Carnegie” would be deeply in with the power structure.
2. Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech)
Georgia Tech, or Georgia Institute of Technology works closely with the military industrial complex.
Georgia Tech works closely with DARPA, receiving contracts and exchanging in other ways. DARPA is the US war machine’s “mad science” division, a part of the Pentagon responsible for producing technology.
Georgia Tech has aided DARPA in creating these technologies:
– insect-like robotic legs for helicopters to land on uneven surfaces
– “big data” technology, particularly useful for an agency such as the Pentagon or NSA
– Ddos attack defense for the US military
– three-dimensional chip-cooling technology
– “strengthening resilience following malaria infections”
“The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has awarded a $9.4 million grant to a Northrop Grumman-Georgia Institute of Technology partnership to develop a wireless monitoring method for Internet-of-Things devices.”
3. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
Massachusetts is a center of “system” academia.
Entire books have been written about this institution’s involvement in warfare, such as the 1993 book “The Cold War and American Science: The Military-Industrial-Academic Complex at MIT and Stanford.”
From World War II, to the Cold War, to the present day, MIT has been and continues to be a central hub of science for the power structure.
Massachusetts could be considered a central place where the science of weather modification, or geo-engineering came about.
Geoengineering’s historical and present ties to Massachusetts, especially MIT, are documented in Peter A. Kirby’s book “Chemtrails Exposed: A New Manhattan Project.” For more about MIT and geoengineering, you can listen to this interview with Peter Kirby.
4. Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI)
Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) is an original institute of technology, founded in Massachusetts in 1865.
It is involved with “food engineering,” biotechnology and genetic modification, “transgenic animals” or genetically modified animals using DNA of other species, nanotechnology, and many other things which they rarely acknowledge the dangers of.
Their support for genetically modified food is not very hidden. In a 2012 program titled “GMO Awareness at WPI,” they claim it is a myth that “GMOs cause illness and cancer.”
In 2017 more evidence has come out to suggest exactly how GM foods can be harmful. They probably will not want to recognize that.
“Melinda Belisle ’08 is on a mission to defend how valuable genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, can be, despite the scorn that has been heaped on some agribusinesses’ GMO corporate practices. As a science and technology fellow with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, she works in the office that regulates GMOs which include engineered plants made to flourish in parts of the world beset by drought, climate change, and pest infestations.”
Same as many people in institutes of technology, she is working with the US government.
5. Michigan State University
Michigan State University is not an institute of technology, but like the other academic institutions in with “the system,” they are given money to develop potentially dangerous science that serves to benefit corporations and government.
They were given money from a government agency to develop genetically modified potatoes. According to Capital Press:
“J.R. Simplot Co., in cooperation with two Midwest universities, is developing a new line of genetically modified potato varieties intended to help fight hunger in Bangladesh and Indonesia.
The U.S. Agency for International Development announced Oct. 26 that it’s awarded a $5.8 million grant to Michigan State University to partner with University of Minnesota and Simplot in developing biotech Asian spud varieties with genes introduced to resist late blight.”
This “U.S. Agency for International Development” is another vaguely titled cog of the system, not really meant to be understood by the general public. This is an entity pouring millions of dollars into science that shapes society in the state’s image.
6. Purdue University
Purdue University is a home to biotech and big pharma.
A Purdue study had the audacity to claim climate change would be exacerbated by not planting GM crops. An article about it is titled: “Model predicts elimination of GMO crops would cause hike in greenhouse gas emissions.”
The article on the study says: “A global ban on genetically modified crops would raise food prices and add the equivalent of nearly a billion tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, a study by researchers from Purdue University shows.”
If that’s not a complete stretch to fit a narrative they are biased towards, I don’t know what is.
Purdue works with pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly and Company. A 2002 press release provides insight into this cooperation, with the title: “Eli Lilly and Company, Indiana University and Purdue University Join Forces to Advance the Study of Proteomics.”
Purdue University has a pharmaceutical division: the Purdue University College of Pharmacy.
According to Wikipedia: “The College of Pharmacy is one of eight major academic divisions, or Colleges, of Purdue University. It was established in 1884, and is the 3rd oldest state-funded school of pharmacy in the United States.”
7. The Modern War Institute
The Modern War Institute is a part of United States Military Academy at West Point (USMA).
According to their Facebook page: “The Modern War Institute (MWI) at West Point is a national resource within the Dept of Military Instruction that studies recent and on-going conflicts.”
They appear to be a kind of think tank organization similar to the Council on Foreign Relations but much lower level. This is one of many military academic institutions, with a particularly obscene name.
8. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (at Harvard)
This school within Harvard is home to David Keith, the famous geoengineer who is pushing to haze out the sun by spraying aerosols in the sky to “combat climate change.” He is “Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Physics” at the school.
Geoengineering (by seeding the stratosphere) is one of the most dangerous things that could possibly be done to us, and it would usher in a new era of warfare and involuntary treatment.
The skies being overtly hazed out for some allegedly benevolent purpose would set a precedent, making it to where anything could be sprayed on us: how could we differentiate the geoengineering material from whatever else is in the air?
David Keith surely knows geoengineering is a cover for weather warfare, but he is willing to use his career to push for spraying of the skies. This is exactly the type of mad science our world doesn’t need.
9. Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech)
Virginia is of course a center of government and military activity, and this influence extends fully into Virginia Tech.
DARPA works with Virginia Tech as well, with the school participating in the “DARPA robotics challenge” and any other activity you’d imagine with a school like this.
According to a VT publication:
“Two Virginia Tech-affiliated teams are now in California for the finale of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, a worldwide competition to build prototype humanoid robots that can respond to disasters natural or man-made.”
There appears to be little concern of moral culpability: do the people working on robotics understand what it could be used for?
10. Israel Institute of Technology (Technion)
Israel Institute of Technology was founded as an early outpost of western academia in Palestine, before the creation of the state of Israel.
It’s first president was British industrialist Alfred Mond: this perfectly exemplifies how industrialists and business magnates influenced academia at the turn of the 20th Century.
They are involved with biotech and big pharma, and recently have published papers on encapsulating viruses or bacteria in electrospun nanofibers, to fix soil for crops or treat a water supply. Considerably dangerous technology could come, or may have already come from this institution.
According to Wikipedia:
“The Technion was conceived in the early 1900s by the German-Jewish fund Ezrah as a school of engineering and sciences. It was to be the only institution of higher learning in the then Ottoman Palestine, other than the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem (founded in 1907). Its cornerstone was laid in 1912, and studies began 12 years later in 1924. The Technion was the venue for Israel’s “battle of the languages”, an intense debate over the language of instruction.
In 1923 Albert Einstein visited and planted the now-famous first palm tree, as an initiative of Nobel tradition. The first palm tree still stands today in front of the old Technion building in the Hadar neighborhood. Einstein founded the first Technion Society, and served as its president upon his return to Germany.”
Continuing from Wikipedia:
“The Faculty of Biology was established in 1971. Advanced research is carried out in 23 research groups, focusing on a variety of aspects of cellular, molecular and developmental biology. The faculty has extensive collaborations with the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. The Faculty has around 350 undergraduate students and over 100 graduate students.
Established in 1968, the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering has a multidiciplinary scope nurturing research activities that blend medical and biological engineering. Research projects have resulted in the development of patented medical aids. Recent research breakthroughs include the identification of a structured neurological code for syllables and could let paraplegics “speak” virtually through the connection of the brain to a computer.”
These institutions are part of a compartmentalized system of warfare.
They bear responsibility for rapidly dragging us into a world of genetic modification, biotechnology, and “synthetic everything,” while the powers funding them are abusing science to the fullest, ignoring moral or safety concerns wherever they please.
Governments and corporations use money to influence science toward a certain trajectory, giving grants and recruiting people.
Only by recognizing these institutions, can we fully hold people accountable when they develop technology that causes suffering.
Regardless of if scientists choose to ignore what they have done, they are morally culpable for what they create, and it is their responsibility to think of the toll it could take on humanity before they decide to create it.
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?
