The main thesis of this presentation is that the current obsession with hierarchical control will soon come to an end, and could go one of two ways: 1) A bloody armageddon in which humanity wipes itself out in a frenzied struggle of competition with nature. 2) A submission to the natural pattern of decentralised control, a recognition of human limits, and the replacement of hierarchical systems of domination by decentralised networks of nurture.
Mastery of basic materials such as flint set the stage for application of a similar process to living creatures, both human and non-human.
Different people were skilled at different tasks, and certain tasks (e.g. hunting) probably worked better when an expert deployed others by giving them ‘orders’. This differed from modern hierarchies in that not only was it more consensual, it was also temporary and task-based.
90% of jobs in Athenian Society were short term appointments.
This process is mentioned in “The Money Masters” and detailed in G. Edward Griffin’s “Reality Course on Money”. He refers to it as “the Rothschild formula”. It is scarcely mentioned in public arenas. Ezra Pound was one prominent person who flouted this convention. His wartime broadcasts about the powerful monied interests who benefited from WW2 were enough to land him charges of treason from US. He was not charged, but detained in a mental institution for 12 years.
“ The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson — and I am not wholly excepting the Administration of W.W. (Woodrow Wilson). The country is going through a repetition of Jackson's fight with the Bank of the United States — only on a far bigger and broader basis. ” - Franklin Roosevelt, letter to Col. Edward Mandell House (21 November 1933); as quoted in F.D.R.: His Personal Letters, 1928-1945, edited by Elliott Roosevelt (New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, 1950), pg. 373. “ The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen. It seizes in its long and powerful tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies, our schools, our courts, our newspapers and every agency created for the public protection... At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties. ” New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, 1922
Historically, fiat (unbacked) money systems such as the current one all succumb to the greed of their controllers. Since 1976, no major currency has been backed. The Swiss Franc was backed by gold until recently???
See “Operation Hollwywood” for an introduction to the Pentagon’s long history of managing War Film production in an effort to exclude negative images of war to encourage fresh generations to feed their youth into its machine.
Schools are the most obvious example, but professional qualifications as just as important. Jeff Schmidt’s details at http://DisciplinedMinds.com how training courses act as social filters, preventing unwanted minorities (e.g. Blacks in the Police force, working class in academia) from qualifying as professionals.
Note the subtle difference between “demand” (=what people want) and “effective demand” (= what people want and have money to pay for). Of course, when economists talk about supply matching demand, they’re only talking about “effective demand”.

Before the September 11 th attacks, Hitler’s Reichstag fire was perhaps the best known false flag attack, but since the organisation of modern secret services, the number of suspicious terrorist attacks has proliferated greatly.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1038914/ On September 13th, Gennadiy Seleznyov of the Communist Party was handed a note by an FSB officer, and announced: “I have just received a report. According to information from Rostov-on-Don, an apartment building in the city of Volgodonsk was blown up last night.” However, the bombing in Volgodonsk took place three days later, on September 16. When the Volgodonsk bombing happened, Vladimir Zhirinovsky demanded an explanation in the Duma, but Seleznev turned his microphone off. Main evidence: The ryazan incident, in which an alert member of the public noticed a bomb planet in the basement of a building. The local police and multiple witnesses and evidence point to FSB. After initially celebrating at a foiled plot, once their own memebrs were implicated, some of the FSB announced it had been an ‘exercise’, a claim which was categorically denied by the investigator Sergei Kovalev (arrested by FSB), and for which FSB have never produced any supporting documentation. The Russian Duma rejected two motions for parliamentary investigation of the Ryazan incident.The Duma, on a pro-Kremlin party-line vote, voted to seal all materials related to the Ryazan incident for the next 75 years and forbade an investigation into what happened.
Of all False Flag terror attacks, 9-11 is the most famous and there are some excellent websites about it on WWW (as well of course as some complete junk and deliberate obfuscation). Some points to look at to understand what went on: 1) As well as WTC1&2, WTC7 also collapsed completely and immediately on September 11th. This was not widely known for several years, since it was never shown on TV. BBC and others announced the collapse before it happened. 2) WTC1,2 & 7 were shut for unscheduled maintenance a few days before 3) Larry Silverstein leased WTC buildings 1,2,4 & 5 a few weeks earlier, including an anti-terrorism insurance policy that paid up $4,577,000,000. 4) Sep 11 th 2001 had more military exercises than any other day in history. Many of them involved aeroplane hijackings. 5) Some people made a killing by investing huge sums in PUT options of the affected airlines, betting that their stock price would fall. The securities and exchange commission has the records, but have refused to provide them. 6) Donald Rumsfeld announced that the US Pentagon had ‘lost’ $2,300,000,000,000 on September 10 th , 2001. 7) The 9-11 Commission had a tiny budget, was only created under public pressure, was staffed by insiders, and did not require key officials to testify under oath. 8) Officials from the Pentagon moved with great speed to requisition CCTV from gas stations and hotels which might have shown what hit on September 11th, but they have never released any footage showing what happened, only 4 still photos. Peter Dale Scott is very worth looking up on the matter of Monetta’s testimony and the different accounts of his movements he gave to the 9-11 commission.
For an account of how CIA subverts other hierarchies such as US military, see L. Fletcher Prouty’s book “ The Secret Team: The CIA and Its Allies in Control of the United States and the World”
A cabal have used a mixture of public and secret societies to consolidate power. For a detailed account of how CIA began to use the structure of interlocking hierarchies to carry out military operations clandestinely, see L. Fletcher Prouty’s book “ The Secret Team: The CIA and Its Allies in Control of the United States and the World” The following groups are worth investigating: Bank for International Settlements Bilderberg Group Council on Foreign Relations Trilateral Comission Historically, the following have been very important Milner’s Kindergarten Royal Institute for International Affairs
Why is this never mentioned? Because the oligarchs control big media. Discussion of the US government’s official conspiracy theory regarding September 11th, is not welcome on mass media. Anyone who has exressed skepticism about it is unlikely to be mentioned unless they agree be quoted with a rider that they have “moved away from 9-11 truth”, or suitably vague term.
Lacking a conscience, psychopaths are manipulative in their relationships. Devoid of love, they cannot understand that others could love them, so their lives are plagued by insecurity, the fear that others could treat them in a psychopathic fashion. Their only defence against this is power, explaining their zealous pursuit of it. Unsuccessful in terms of human relationships, they often group with other sufferers of psychopathy. Their ruthlessness propels them to success in the business world, aided by the fact that they have formed it in their own psychopathic image.
“ For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it. ” David Rockefeller, Memoirs, 2002
Modern systems were incrementally built on one another, often with little thought to the fact that some of them at least (such as those resistant on fossil fuels) are necessarily short term.
Wikipedia is good basis for starting research, but don’t expect truth on contentious issues. If the page is ‘locked’ (to prevent vandalism...) this is a sign that perhaps something is being hidden. For example, look at the pages on 9-11 or WTC7. Possibly they just got tired of reverting people’s edits. In this case, look at the page’s history, since this should contain earlier copies. In the future, more fully decentralised systems could emerge, which will not be so vulnerable to censorship by hierarchy.
The apparent universality of modern “common sense” notions of money, society, family, life etc. is one of the greatest barriers to noticing their psychopathy. To the abused child, becoming an abusive parent can seems like the ‘normal’ thing to do. How much more so those whose society is steeped in psychopathy. To anyone who has looked at the figures, the hypocrisy of foreign “aid” is clear. The materially poorest nations of the world support the materially richest. To them that hath, shall be given. Oftentimes, foreign ‘aid’ is linked to acceptance of political or economic interference. John Perkins book “Confessions An Economic Hitman” details how he and others worked to ensnare the peoples of the financially poorest nations the World Bank. The hypocrisy of WTO’s ‘fair trade’, the U.N.’s “peace keeping”, many other supposedly altruistic organisations is similarly blatant. The active participation of those lower in the hierarchy is ensured through threats of violence (the most obvious ones stemming from lack of money - for example, whoever doesn’t pay their mortgage is liable to violent expulsion from their home).
The technological spin about new sources of energy is largely a distraction, especially in the context of climate change. The real issue is reduction of energy use, which does not necessarily mean hardship. Consider, for example, how much is consumed by the military, or by making cheap plastic rubbish or shipping stuff around the world.
Few would argue, this is the direction the world is going in, driven by a set of psychopathic ideologies that emphasise submission of hierarchy, and ignoring the evidence of our own senses.
