Watch this video:
Spread the word. Change the global conscious. ENGAGE IN CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE AND NON-VIOLENT PROTEST.
Or trash talk me and each other and wait to be drafted and/or shot in the back of the head in front of a mass grave.
one world, one chance. We are conscious beings capable of overriding “old brain” impulses with frontal brain capabilities. In other words, we can change our thoughts and therefor, our behavior.
@ijesuschrist, Lol, where have you been for the last 100 years?Nearly every war waged in the last century was done for wealth or strategic importance to get more wealth. Wars are the most profitable thing you can possibly do. A recent report released from RT has calculated that Haliburton, a major military industrial manufacturer (probably the biggest) made almost 40 billion dollars from the Iraq war alone. I highly recommend you look up a detailed history of the Rothschilds and the strings they have been pulling for almost 3 centuries. This isn’t conspiracy friends, this is what was been going on in America for the last century.
Holy shit. of all the things, secrets, conspiracies i knew of this nation and world this video just rocked my world. Makes me grieve and brings tears but at the sametime excites me to be part of a new revolution of freedom and truth. civil disobediance yes but how? Where does one start? Where does the revolution start? Where is ghandi?!!!
”Would you like to save the world from the degradation and destruction it seems destined for? Then step away from shallow mass movements and quietly go to work on your own self-awareness. If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.” —Lao Tzu
On the subject of war and peace, I would start here –
@spadoincle, Wow, awesome video man thanks for posting it. I’ve been thinking a lot of the same things and right now I try to spread as much information as I can to raise peoples awareness. Humanities only hope of survival is community, if every human being on planet Earth works together the results would be extraordinary.
@spadoincle, Thanks for sharing. Hopefully people realize. I have been hearing everyone talking about North Korea lately and all I keep saying is dont be afraid. They want you to be afraid. North Korea isnt doing anything out of their ordinary. It is U.S. that is provoking this! Blaaaahhhh
@drakonerythros, woops sorry thought this was totally different. Thought it was going to be how the US enslaves its people and what not.
I can’t necessarily agree that this video’s prediction is correct, however I can definitely see it as plausible (in contrast to making the US a police state and enslaving its citizens which is a view point running rampant). A friend of mine works in military as a contract engineer, he at least doesn’t do any designing of killing stuff directly but this is a quote he hears often, and from various people;
“All we would need is another war to get this economy back on track”
And, yes, given our history, war increases the economy, mostly because it is a huge moral boost for the citizens, as they feel ‘safe’ to spend their money. However, with the past wars not necessarily being complete push-overs as far as acceptance (steady decline in the acceptance of war ever since WW2).
Iran made an absolutely breath-taking speech some time ago, when he was to speak at the UN (and the US didn’t even show up). The president’s speech was so thoughtful and beautiful, I couldn’t help but realize the fucked up shit our media is doing to these guys. Nothing in the middle east is unbiased now, nothing. Even RT has some bias, even peace network.
How civil disobedience is going to do anything is beyond me. It didn’t do shit for Vietnam, Iran, Iraq, or afghanistan. Nobody who really funds and runs this company is going to stop doing things. Nobody that matters to the machine of capitalism is going to conduct civil disobedience. I’m sorry but a bunch of blue-collar people and college students protesting isn’t going to get the president to say “OK I’m sorry”. The country still runs without you.
You need to convince the masses of CEOs and CFOs and transportation authority’s and police, and infrastructure to stop and do something, not us.
@ijesuschrist, Yeah, an empire would never kill of it’s own citizens. How many times has that happened in the last decade alone? A lot. Look at all the genocides going on in Africa right now. History is filled with empires murdering it’s own citizens. Actually, now that I think about it, when HASN’T a government at some point in time murdered it’s own citizens at some point? I can’t think of a single one, can you? It makes me rage when people who are for gun control are willing to chip away at their own rights and then make themselves feel better with “The government would never do that to us.”. As if this time in history is different than any other.As if enacting arbitrary feel good laws will accomplish anything. The WWIII that this video describes may or may not happen in our lifetime, there are WAY too many factors involved. It wouldn’t hurt to be prepared. Worst that happens is you have a garden and know how to shoot a gun.
@ijesuschrist, Ah ok, you replied very quickly to me, yeah, I totally agree. The problem is the people that run this world will not stop. They will never stop the wealth accumulation, or the grabs for power. Like at all points in history, there will be revolution, there always is, and the tyrants will be replaced with new tyrants and the cycle will repeat itself. I only wish there was a way to start a new cycle. I only wish there was a way to get money and power to not corrupt people.
@rudygazudapek, It’s not like we’re saying lizard aliens from Planet X are controlling all the governments of the world. The things we are talking about in this thread is only conspiracy to the naive, unenlightened retard. There are already enough mouth breathers out there who question nothing and are completely ignorant of the true intentions of world events. Don’t be one yourself.
@timoteo, “Where is ghandi?!!!”
Cruising up and down the street in a cherry red 1975 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, smoking fine cigarillos and taking pulls off a bottle of cognac while behind the wheel, and concealing a .357 magnum revolver in his shoulder holster. While blasting ’70s funk at the loudest possible volume, and mouthing off to British police who pull him over, who let him go on his merry way.
@all I generally agree that the elite benefit from the existence and outcome of wars….but I don’t think WW3 is likely to happen. Also, I don’t think there will ever be a draft in America again. People just don’t go along with that stuff anymore. After Vietnam, people realized they have choices. There’s already hardly any support for the Iraq or Afghanistan efforts, after a decade of war I highly doubt the American people for one would support another war. We’ve been wanting peace for a long time now.
As for the president of Iran, speech or no, the man is still a jerk. Women and homosexuals are still not treated well there. He and the old-school people over there need to realize that you don’t have to agree with something, or do it yourself, but they need to stop being a dick and trying to control other people’s lives. If it doesn’t affect you, forget about it.
Personally I think WW3 is just more fear-mongering…
@theskafish, “As for the president of Iran, speech or no, the man is still a jerk.”
Sorry forgot to mention he mentioned Praise allah like 40 times in his speech.
You should still watch it. He is a very intelligent man, with some heavy cognitive dissonance.
@ijesuschrist, I think most people watching the news at the time that Saddam Hussein crossed into Kuwait understood we were going to use a military force. So yeah, I sort of did see it coming. As for the US attacking Iran, it won’t happen. Certainly not a US assault. Perhaps a NATO alliance might move forward if Iran actually threatens nuclear war with another neighboring country, but no, with the current President (thankfully) we will not as a US led assault. Nor will we do the same with North Korea. Neither country currently possesses ICBM capability, and when and if they ever do, it will be a sad day simply because this planet is moving in the wrong direction. The likelihood of us ever going to war with a nuclear weapon capable country is as possible as us attacking the USSR at it’s cold war best. These are all scare tactics propagated by a youtube video made by the same moron who made money off his fear mongering of 9/11. It’s the same guy who kept wanting everyone to believe the CIA black programs and other black agencies blew up the twin towers and not two airplanes flown by radical extremists.
I’m not naïve, and I understand there’s problems out there, and we certainly have corruption in all forms of business and government, including our own. I hardly think the “three” stages this idiot sets out is in proper proportion. Notice the non-violent “stages” are covered in a one minute time frame (from 11:15 to 12:15) and then the violent stage is covered for another minute (from 12:15 to 13:19). Might not seem to mean a lot, but it does. It’s a simple ratio, and this ratio says “I want to be provocative and incite violence”. It seems if you truly wish to change things, stage two is where it’s at. Always has been. You need to change thinking, not leaders. Remove a leader, and all you will get is the same leader with a different name.
So yeah, pardon me if I don’t much like this idiot who made money off the fear of 9/11, and now that teat has run dry, he’s moved on to WWIII. Fuck him, and his fear tactics, preying on the ignorant.
I would have liked a video that teaches people how to use a free democratic society to create change towards a cleaner planet, towards a less dangerous planet. Voting is a privilege we possess in America, and though it seems we can’t seem to rid ourselves of corruption in politics, it can happen, but everyone needs to be on board. That’s the way we make this planet safer. We don’t make it safer by toppling a government to stop a make-believe war. Even if it did begin, it takes “two” as most parents will say when it comes to fights.
Getting closer to a more utopian society isn’t done by starting a civil war. That doesn’t work, because all you are doing is postponing a result.
Change minds and you change the future.
@drakonerythros, I am much smarter than you’ve assumed. “naive, unenlightened retard” nice….but having a simple understanding that we are a bunch of warring nations, and making the leap to “this is how it’s going down people” smacks of charlatanism, so don’t be confused. Stating the obvious, then peppering it with volatile rhetoric is crowd control.
@ijesuschrist, I’ve seen some of it before, it’s just hard for me to believe in any peace-and-love talk coming from him though when he treats certain groups of people badly or allows them to be continued to be treated badly. If he is so enlightened, why can’t he see that people’s lifestyle choices are not his problem, and that women should have equal rights?
Smedley D Butler, one of Americas most decorated soldiers, wrote a book called ‘War is a Racket’.
He said the following things,
“War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small ‘inside’ group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.”
He went on to argue the 3 steps to disrupt the war racket as the following
“1. Making war unprofitable. Butler suggests that the owners of capital should be “conscripted” before other citizens are: “It can be smashed effectively only by taking the profit out of war. The only way to smash this racket is to conscript capital and industry and labour before the nation’s manhood can be conscripted. … Let the officers and the directors and the high-powered executives of our armament factories and our steel companies and our munitions makers and our ship-builders and our airplane builders and the manufacturers of all other things that provide profit in war time as well as the bankers and the speculators, be conscripted — to get $30 a month, the same wage as the lads in the trenches get”
2. Acts of war to be decided by those who fight it. He also suggests a limited plebiscite to determine if the war is to be fought. Eligible to vote would be those who risk death on the front lines.
3. Limitation of militaries to self-defence. For the United States, Butler recommends that the navy be limited, by law, to within 200 miles of the coastline, and the army restricted to the territorial limits of the country, ensuring that war, if fought, can never be one of aggression.”
I would also add that without anyone in the army, there would be no war. A warless world is possible if the people refuse military service.
We still have roughly 20,000 nuclear weapons on the planet and many developed nations (with taxpayer and voting support) still support enormous military expenditure. If things are going to change, it has to start with you.
