William-Adolphe Bouguereau Whisperings of Love 1889

 

 

What’s the difference between Julian Assange being robbed of his freedom for 12 years and you being robbed of yours for two? From a legal point of view, very little. Because both are based on, “justified by”, no existing laws. They are based on people who happen to have grabbed power, interpreting existing law in their own favor, aided and abetted by their respective judicial branches.

Assange being told he can have no life, or freedom, today, despite never having been formally accused, let alone convicted, of a crime, is no different than someone in Austria threatened with being imprisoned because they don’t want to be vaxxed with an experimental substance. Neither will have broken an existing and valid law, still both will end up behind bars.

I support people who say it should be everyone’s own choice whether they want to be vaccinated with mRNA or not, but I doubt that more than 2% know even what that is, what it does, and what it still may do to them, and to their children. Informed consent is not just some abstract idea, even if it is treated as such.

The vast majority of people who are coerced into being jabbed, are undoubtedly the same ones who pay no attention to what is happening to Julian Assange. They just read and watch the media they always have, and their media tells them only what the owners and sponsors of the channels and papers want to let them know.

Nothing to do with what is important to their lives, or their freedoms, just a narrow passage way in which their lives are “allowed” to take place. And nothing to do with what that may mean to the lives and freedoms of their children, or to Assange, whose “crime” is he tried to warn them about all this coming.

 

You cannot talk about what government agencies, like the army or secret services, do behind the curtains, that is against “the law”. And if you do, they will say that itself is against the law. It isn’t, but who cares if they find some judge who says it is anyway?

By the same token, you cannot refuse to be jabbed with some untested thing, and then again and again, because some judge will declare that refusing it is against the law. Even if there’s no such law, but there are plenty laws -including weighty international ones- that say it is not.

All three branches of government, along with industry -in this case the pharmaceutical industry, in Assange’s case the secrecy industry-, are lined up against you, just in case you might want to express an opinion that doesn’t coincide with the narrative they have devised for you, your family, your community.

You are now no longer a human being. Not in the sense that western democracies once defined it. You still have two legs and a nose, but your brain has been switched off beyond the point where it is (was?!) capable of original and independent thought. Yes, that is you, today.

 

You never realized it, and how could you, but you are now among the first specimens of a whole new kind of “human” being. Which historians of the future will be sure is proof of a cross between humans and sheep. Either that or a very serious deterioration of brain power, even if no such thing might show up in an autopsy.

Letting your 2 year old child be injected with spike proteins is the exact same thing as letting Julian Assange rot in some prison because the CIA doesn’t like their secrets spilled. Both signal the end of your ability to think for yourself, to make your own decisions, and down the line, obviously, to protect the people, your spouse, your kids, your family, who are dearest to you.

Because no, you do not protect them by giving in to illegal demands about either what you are free to say and do, or to your freedom to not get inoculated with some commercial chemical product. You may think there is safety in complying with the behavior of the crowd, but the bottom of the sea is full of lemmings who had that exact same thought.

Standing up for Julian Assange equals standing up for the rights and freedoms of your children. Who you, make no mistake, surrender to the wolves if you don’t speak up. We do not live in times where these is safety in crowds or in silence. That is not an option.

Or it is, but then we must give up all that makes us human, all that is essential to being who we -potentially- are, essential to your beautiful kids living up to their full potential. Which they cannot possibly do if they follow your example and not use their voices to voice what their brains tell them. You’ll end up halfway murdering your children, just like you’re actively murdering yourself today.

But I have a successful career! I have smart kids! I have a nice house! I have a great car, and the next will be an electric one! Yeah, we know, we know.

It’s just that the essence of a human being is to not be a sheep or a lemming. The essence of a human being is not a house or a car, it is courage, and empathy, and love, and independent thought, independent living.

If we fail to defend the best and brightest and bravest amongst us – that would be Julian – how can we hope to defend the less bright and brave, our very children, and what would it even be worth if we do?

 

What the Assange sorry story, and the blown out of all proportions Covid debacle, make me think is that we live in a turning point of history. The information age has grown up faster than we have, than we ever could.

And it’s leaving us behind. The only defense mechanism we have left is a deep notion of what it means to be human, and how that divides us from other living species, or even from machines. And we are failing.

    The estate of George Orwell has OKed a politically correct re-write of 1984 from a Woke feminist viewpoint. It will be told from the POV of Winston Smith’s lover Julia.

    Ironic as Winston’s job at the Ministry of Propaganda is to rewrite books to fit the Party’s Line. Irony within irony.

    The Woketard’s loved the idea of banning non-PC books but realized it’s better to simply rewrite and republish them.

    Assange’s situation is like that of the Nuremberg Code: both were dead on arrival at the USA docket beginning with the eponymous shit-show trials. He held up a mirror that at first judged the insolently mighty and their associates but with each year, and now probably only days, that mirror reflects on us, the weak powerless well–behaved members of an orderly society, unable to stop one person’s death despite countless millions of us knowing it is fundamentally wrong across the board.

    The mirror asks: Where Were You? and points to where many of us will soon be: feeling powerless, pointless, futile, without so much as the grace of a cage to shield us from the truth.

    Where Are We?

    Having not yet received the order to stop obeying orders, we continue obeying the orders we receive.

    Ever Onward

    But never mind that. Here we have vintage mask-free psychedelic ski-footage-as-art. One can only hope they suffered making this thing:

    What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? – Jesus

    Or if you will,

    “You must give up the life you planned in order to have the life that is waiting for you.” – Joseph Campbell

    For me, I was born with the mark of the beast on hand and forehead. Not in the literal sense, but in thought and deed.

    The antichrist, the great Satan, is the great deception, this antithetical material reality.

    Apparently. those crazy meso-Americans can’t have chimerical mythobeasts of their own:

    Apparently, the Illuminati have nothing better to do than taunt us with grotesque statues symbolizing their power. You know, the Nazis got suckered in big time via art forgeries. Someone at the UN thought this was an inspiring work of art?

    Does anyone know the name and/or the website of the former TAE moderator who went off to start a Christian website? He was in law school at the time.

    FYI, this is prophesied to be the BEAST empire system of “humans,” no?

    Even the Rothschilds view us as beasts, and they define the term, too…

    Although the so-called “moral issues” were raised, in view of the law of natural selection it was agreed that a nation or world of people who will not use their intelligence are no better than animals who do not have intelligence. Such people are beasts of burden and steaks on the table by choice and consent.”

    Former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan and whistleblower Craig Murray was released from prison last week, after serving four months for contempt of court over some blog posts. He was “the only civil [non-criminal] prisoner out of 900 inmates.”

    “I was confined in a cell, which was 12 feet by 8 feet. I was confined in that for a minimum of 22 hours a day. For much of the period of 23 hours a day, with very little association with other prisoners,” he said…

    Prisoners in the cells on each side of Murray became ill with COVID, though the cells themselves are not “hermetically sealed” and the window, which is separated by bars, cannot open to let in fresh air.

    Murray said staff discouraged prisoners, even the symptomatic ones, from asking to be tested in an environment Murray described as “filthy” with rats scurrying around cells.

    He posted this on twitter today, after travelling to London for the Assange ruling:
    Another very hard day; feel shattered. Tomorrow morning we wake up and we start to fight again, with more energy, more determination and more cunning. And we do that every single day until the people win.

    Great article. To be human has been lost, but I think the good news is that it is not that hard to recover. We are human after all.

    A bit like CS Lewis’s story about the Great Divorce. The folks in “hell” have a hard time letting go, so too are the NPCs who are afraid of becoming who the are, human.

    I have to admit that this whole Covid thing has forced me to closely exam what it means to be human, spirituality, and appreciating what our ancestors did in the founding of western civilization.

    >>appreciating what our ancestors did in the founding of western civilization.<<

    The Ugly Truth is that they pretty much did what earned them money. The Money Power, following their perceived Biblical prophecies, that financed what exists — and nothing is more important than financing. Yes, there was some rebellion here and there, but it was short lived.

    The well crafted Beautiful Lie is what most people believe.

    The one caveat is the Money Power is mad at Tesla. They did NOT intend for ordinary humanity to benefit from A/C electricity. They wanted DC in order to centralize energy, the essence they value above all else (and why they biochemically deplete it from the unwitting). Think Hunger Games-ish. Even then, they respected “natural law” and allowed it flow… according to their belief system.

    We have been UzBanksterstan for a very, very, very long time — well beyond your entire lifespan.

    Ilargi,

    Thank you for presenting a bold “call to action” by asking us to examine what it means to be human. I believe this is the key to understanding what we have lost – and more importantly, what we need to be fighting for – as we move forward TOGETHER.

    Yes, “The essence of a human being is courage, and empathy, and love, and independent thought, independent living”. Add respect, devotion/commitment, and co-operation.

    We have sacrificed and surrendered our AUTHENTIC selves in the quest to achieve a dream. When you speak of loss of independent thought, living and action, you are referring to our AUTOMATIC selves taking control in response to an unrealistic, unfit pursuit. Over the years we keep “investing” even though the “returns” never measure up. We stay the course. Eventually we wear out (rust out) and give up.

    There is only ONE WAY forward. We have to RECLAIM our Humanity. How? It starts with each of us, right here right now, in our own circles (family/friends/work/school/church/community) – being our best AUTHENTIC selves in LIFE/LIVING in thought, word, and deed.

    A shared PURPOSE is essential – and RECLAIMING OUR HUMANITY is a worthy VISION.

    It would also be helpful to have a practical, tangible, actionable Roadmap. My long-time friend Charles Hugh Smith continues to lay the groundwork for such a plan. His new book will offer insight. In a personal note I received yesterday:

    “…the better solution in my view would be for the people to take back their country. We both know it might already be too late for that, but I still hold out hope for a secular Great Transformation that is social rather than political, a refusal to go along with the status quo and an embrace of a positive degrowth future”.

    A secular GREAT TRANSFORMATION that is social not political – reclaiming our humanity becomes a rallying point. The REFUSAL – clear lines drawn, taking a stand. The EMBRACE of a positive degrowth future which could include all kinds of exciting realignments.

    Being Human means LIVING life: you have to put yourself out there in alignment with a meaningful VISION and PURPOSE. I believe we can do better. Some of us will RECLAIM our HUMANITY (our better selves) for the good of All. Every effort done with GREAT LOVE will bring GREAT LOVE in return. LOVE TRANSFORMS and TRANSCENDS.

    LOVE is with YOU my Friends.
