The Tryanny of What Already Exists

by Jon Rappoport

OCTOBER 24, 2012. We want to know what exists. We want to know it at the bottom of the sea and out in the stars and within our own minds and in realms outside the normal channels of perception. Of course we want to journey to those places and find out what’s there.

We search for design and pattern and structure and system, in order to reach the highest kind of knowledge about existence. We need to add a different platform.

Design, structure, system, and shape are not the end of the voyage. They are objectives that serve lesser goals. They are real and very useful and fine and good—but they are limited.

People who are obsessed with What Exists don’t see that. They think the structure and system are the grandest end-points.

This obsession is a deep part of human programming. When operating at full-bore, it obscures the farther shore.

When the goal of discovering-what-exists takes over to the point of obsession, it forms a mesh of reality that surrounds us. It is the meta-program that allows the matrix to have strength.

It’s interesting to reflect on those three famous Matrix films, and how they disintegrate step by step, from the discovery of the reality-prison—and the rush of adrenaline which ensues—on to the mindless war—as if that kind of struggle will actually free anyone.

The collapse of the storyline mirrors what happens when the impulse to see through to the Final Structure tries to continue past that point: there is nowhere to go.

Why? Because the heroes are really only armed with the all-consuming desire to uncover What Exists. Beyond that, they are clueless.

There is something about that voyage that degrades like an element with a very short half-life. It sputters out. The heroes revert back to older, more basic programming. Fight, conquer territory, defend, attack.

One: the thrill of profound discovery. Two: then the feeling of vacuum and confusion. Three: then the reversion back to primitive hatreds. With that sequence—now you are talking about the real Matrix.

In the arena of genetic research, there is the hope that, someday, we will find a gene which will somehow “wake up” all the dormant circuits in the brain—and then we will gain back fantastic insight and power. But based on what scientists have so far unearthed, is there any reason to believe this? Or is it just one more illusion which propels us forward on the voyage of discovery?

Literature, plays, films, and television are littered with stories that contain a mystery—and at the end comes the payoff, when the mystery is solved, when we find out What Exists.For a moment, the audience is absorbed, and then there is the let down.

It’s as if a voyage through a rich forest suddenly ended in a vacuum, in a Nothing.

As long as the secret and the mystery can be prolonged, as long as What Exists can be postponed, you have the audience with you. But when the solution is revealed, all you have is the thirst for another mystery. “Tell us more! Tell us another one! Give us another puzzle!”

I once had a conversation with a modern guru in the field of self-improvement. He is a very successful author and lecturer. At one point, he said, essentially: You know, I have nothing left. I’ve written these books, I’ve told my audiences what they need to know. They keep wanting more. The next book, the next lecture. I’m tired. I don’t have any more secrets. They don’t really want to know what works in their lives. They want stories. They want the thrill of the hunt for the next big thing. But when they get it, I can see them go over the edge into depression…

It’s a paradox. People want to massage a secret, they want it to be solved and yet, when it’s solved, they don’t care anymore. But if you give them a real secret, one that doesn’t resolve, one that challenges them in a different way, they throw up their hands and give up. They claim they “don’t understand.”

Several years ago, I went to the Vatican, to the Sistine Chapel, to see the Michelangelo fresco. I sat in the room with several hundred other visitors. We all craned our necks, looking at the famous ceiling. I’m sure that for many of those people, it was the fulfillment of a dream: to finally witness the greatness of one of the most famous works of art on the planet.

Afterwards, outside in the corridor, I watched them leave. What I saw on their faces was a neutrality tinged with boredom.

The mystery was solved. They had seen the thing in person, finally. They had found out What Exists. It was the end.

I’m sketching here the anatomy of The Voyage to Discover What Exists.

It is one of the great enduring passions. But it has a vast and gaping downside. The payoff melts into a sagging passivity. “Well, that’s over. What’s next?”

Remember the Mike Nichols film, The Graduate? In that middle-class drama, the young Benjamin goes to extreme lengths to win Elaine, the daughter of Mrs. Robinson. He storms into Elaine’s wedding; she deserts her fiancee. Outside the church, Ben and Elaine catch a bus and take their seats in the back. As the film ends, Ben just sits there. He has captured the prize. He stares vaguely at nothing. No joy. Only a blank.

Here is a statement attributed to Nobel Laureate Albert Szent- Gyorgyi (1937 Prize for Physiology and Medicine): “In my search for the secret of life, I ended up with atoms and electrons, which have no life at all. Somewhere along the line, life has run out through my fingers. So, in my old age, I am now retracing my steps…”

How many seekers after the grand conspiracy behind all conspiracies become bogged down in their own journey, especially after they believe they have the answers to their ultimate questions? How many travelers along this road decide their findings add up to a portrait of a hopeless locked-down future, from which no one can escape—and then give up the whole enterprise in disgust and disillusionment?

Many years ago, a friend told me about a UFO cult that had existed somewhere in the Midwest, in the 1920s. The leader informed her followers that a great ship was coming to take them all away to a better place, a wonderful planet. The date and time were set. The leader had been receiving instructions from alien ET guides.

On this basis, all the members of the cult sold their houses and belongings (as if money would be useful on Planet X?). On the appointed date, the group was sitting in room, waiting for the ship to arrive. After several delays, the leader emerged from another room and said the UFO guides had just told her they weren’t coming after all, because the catastrophe that was supposed to decimate Earth had been sidetracked and avoided.So there they were, sitting in a room, all dressed up with nowhere to go (and nowhere to live).

The result? The effort at recruiting new members expanded, and the cult grew! The leader told them a new story about what was coming in the wonderful years ahead—a new mystery was in progress.

THE OBSESSION TO DISCOVER WHAT EXISTS.

What Exists is, on a significant level, the greatest con game ever invented.

Everyone wants to chase down WHAT EXISTS and reveal it.

If Jesus really survived the crucifixion or was never hung on the cross, and escaped the Middle East, and if he married and had children, and if those children had children, and if that bloodline still exists…

Ten or 20 years after this “great secret is exposed”…how many of the millions of people who were originally galvanized by it still care or think about it….it’s old hat…we want another story…tell us another story….

Well, here is a different story:

The human being was placed in a universe that appeared to beg for discovery of its secrets.The die was cast. Humans would forever try to satisfy that hunger.

They would never suspect there was another way. They would never graduate, through a fundamental shifting of gears, up on to another echelon.They would never guess that you have to game the system that is rigged to defeat you.

 You have to turn the con around. (emphasis added)

If things (life) are designed to subvert you…BECOME A DESIGNER.

If What Exists proves to be an endless labyrinth, landing you, finally, back at the starting gate…INVENT WHAT EXISTS.

If reality is created to gobble you up in a voyage for answers and solutions…CREATE REALITY.

Turn the tables.

Move beyond only discovering What Exists, and recognize that voyage was the primary reason you kept yourself in the dark about your own creative power.

Understand, once and for all, that every system is another version of What Exists…they are murals you attach yourself to like barnacles on a ship.

Freedom is the platform from which imagination can spread out infinitely.

The universe is waiting for imagination to revolutionize it down to its core.

…I call them the SOB People. In this case, SOB stands for State of Being. You may recall that the verb “to be” and all its forms is labeled “the state of being” verb. It expresses no action.It’s about Is. It’s about What Exists.The SOB People love What Exists. They pray at that altar every day.

The SOB People look at imagination as an activity like the re-arranging of deck chairs. For them, nothing new ever occurs. Invention merely puts together what is already known. Invention takes ideas and images and fits them together in different ways. The present is only a redistribution of the past.

They are married forever to What Exists. They stake out their territory there. “Nothing new under the sun.” They take pride in this view. They think it makes them very wise.

Actually it deteriorates their lives and energy one drop at a time.

In their graves and beyond, they keep mouthing, “What Already Exists, What Already Exists, What Already Exists.”

Teachers in writing classes and seminars often tell their students, “Write about what you know.” This pearl has stalled large numbers of aspiring authors. I would tell them, “Write about anything you want to—especially what you don’t know.”

From the perspective of ordinary reality, imagination is all about what is impossible. If that sounds like a koan, chew on it for a while.

Imagination is that faculty that can raise the dead.

Imagination can give rise to the spontaneous creation of what has never been before.

Imagination shifts the whole emphasis of living from the discovery of What Exists to the creation of something new, a new reality(ies).

Imagination decimates the entire library of human programming.

With imagination, you aren’t buying a story; you’re inventing countless numbers of stories.

But this invention isn’t just aimless ruminating—you create something new, you express something new, and you propel it into the world.

Of course, there is fear of the New. People think something terrible might happen if they invent something new. Their friends might ridicule them. The whole universe might suddenly collapse. Their minds might shred.

This is where human programming really bites hard. This programming assumes and asserts that, with enough voyaging, with enough discovery, one can find the Ultimate, one can find “everything that needs to be found.”

Whereas the truth is: you can create infinitely.

AND WHAT YOU CREATE IS NEW.

Betrayal: The US Government Is Using Terrorism Against Americans

Violence and Threats Being Used to Intimidate and Coerce the American Public for Political Purposes

We’ve documented that – by any measure – America is the largest sponsor of terrorism in the world.

But remember, terrorism is defined as:

The use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.

The American government has also been using violence and threats to intimidate and coerce the American public for political purposes.

For example, the U.S. government is doing the following things to terrorize the American public into docility and compliance:

http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2013/01/u-s-government-using-terrorism-against-the-american-people.html

Let’s not forget the biggest act of terrorism on american soil, 9/11.  Whatever faction is powerful enough to pull that off and (so far) get away with it is pretty much acting in the capacity of “US government”.

Latvia’s Economic Disaster: A Model for Europe and the US?

A generation ago the Chicago Boys and their financial supporters applauded General Pinochet’s anti-labor Chile as a success story, thanks mainly to its transformation of their Social Security into Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs) that almost universally were looted by the employer grupos by the end of the 1970s. In the last decade, the Bush Administration, seeking a Trojan Horse to privatize Social Security in the United States, applauded Chile’s disastrous privatization of pension accounts (turning many over to US financial institutions) even as that nation’s voters rejected the Pinochetistas largely out of anger at the vast pension rip-off by high finance.

Today’s most highly celebrated anti-labor success story is Latvia. Latvia is portrayed as the country where labor did not fight back, but simply emigrated politely and quietly. No general strikes, nor destruction of private property or violence, Latvia is presented as a country where labor had the good sense to not make a fuss when faced with austerity.  Latvians gave up protest and simply began voting with their backsides (emigration) as the economy shrank, wage levels were scaled down, and where tax burdens remained decidedly on the backs of labor, even though recent token efforts have been made to increase taxes on real estate. The World Bank applauds Latvia and its Baltic neighbors by placing them high on its list of “business friendly” economies, even though at times scolding their social regimes as even too harsh for the Victorian tastes of the international financial institutions.

Can this really be a model for the United States or Europe’s remaining social democracies? Or is it simply a cruel experiment that cannot readily be emulated in larger countries un-traumatized by Soviet era memories of occupation? One can only dream …

But the dream is attractive enough. In a page one The New York Times feature article accompanying that paper’s celebration of the Obama Administration’s Fiscal Cliff commitment to budget cutting, Andrew Higgins provides the latest attempt to applaud Latvia’s economic and demographic plunge as the “Latvian Miracle.” The newspaper thus has fallen in line with the surrealistic Orwellian attempts to depict Latvia’s austerity and asset stripping as an economic success as rendered in the brochures distributed by the Institute for International Finance (the now notorious Peterson bank lobby “think tank”) and international financial institutions from the IMF to the European Union banking bureaucracy. What they mean by “success” is slashing wage levels and leaving the tax burden primarily on labor and lightly on capital gains, without spurring a revolution or even Greek style general strikes. The success is one of psy-ops and engineering of consent Edward Bernays style, rather than of successful economic policy. …

Of course even the most finely tuned propaganda doesn’t suffice when people actually start going hungry, thus the need for the other prong of the skewer, paramilitary counterinsurgency, developed in vietnam and honed to an algorithm in latin america:

The recruitment of death squads is part of a well established US military-intelligence agenda. There is a long and gruesome US history of covert funding and support of  terror brigades and targeted assassinations going back to the Vietnam war. 

As government forces continue to confront the self-proclaimed “Free Syrian Army” (FSA),  the historical roots of  the West’s covert war on Syria –which has resulted in countless atrocities– must be fully revealed.

From the outset in March 2011, the US and its allies have supported the formation of death squads and the incursion of  terrorist brigades in a carefully planned undertaking.

The recruitment and training of terror brigades in both Iraq and Syria was modeled on the “Salvador Option”,  a “terrorist model” of mass killings by US sponsored death squads in Central America. It was first applied in  El Salvador, in the heyday of resistance against the military dictatorship, resulting in an estimated 75,000 deaths.

The formation of death squads in Syria builds upon the history and experience of US  sponsored terror brigades in Iraq, under the Pentagon’s “counterinsurgency” program. …

It doesn’t take a genius to see what’s in store for this country if the robber baron scam-masters get their way.

By Any Measure, the U.S. Is the Largest Sponsor of Terror

Preface: As a patriotic American – I was born here, lived here all of my life, and love this country – I want the best for the U.S.

Lawless actions are tearing my country apart.  I want my country to regain its vision, strength and moral compass.  Thomas Jefferson said that “Dissent is the highest form of patriotism”.  I criticize my country because I know we are better than this … and that if enough people know how far we have fallen, we can start to pull ourselves back and reclaim our greatness.

The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan – Lt. General William Odom said:

By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation.

(audio here).

The Washington Post reported in 2010:

The United States has long been an exporter of terrorism, according to a secret CIA analysis released Wednesday by the Web site WikiLeaks.

The head and special agent in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles office said that most terror attacks are committed by our CIA and FBI. ….

http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2013/01/by-any-measure-the-u-s-is-the-worlds-largest-sponsor-of-terror.html

Lawless actions are tearing my country apart.”  This is the glaring clue to the nature of the problem: criminals masquerading as public servants and acting with impunity, a “collectively autocatalytic” network of mutual back scratchers under the control of foreign and private interests.  It’s time to stop using terminology that implies their legitimacy.  Terms like “our government” or what “we” as a country are doing under their “leadership” are inappropriate here.  If someone showed up at your front door wearing a funny hat, claiming to be the emperor of your neighborhood and demanding your first born for his slave, would you oblige?  You’d laugh in his face.  But what if he had a WMD?  What if he threw a vial of plague through your window “for your own good” and STILL demanded your first born?  This is the state of affairs we have with with a “national government” which predictably and repeatedly acts against the national interest, actually wages an undeclared war against the people of this country. They’ve managed to ship much of our industrial infrastructure overseas.  Public education is a menace to be avoided or compensated for.  The FDA harms american children with dangerous drugs, vaccines and pseudo food.  The ATF smuggles guns to the same mexican drug gangs that the DEA launders profits for (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/04/world/americas/us-drug-agents-launder-profits-of-mexican-cartels.html?_r=3&).  The CIA has been caught repeatedly smuggling heroin and cocaine into this country while its wall street controllers profit from slave shops in private prisons, and brazenly maintains a foreign legion (Al Qaeda) to terrorize americans into eternal war both here and abroad.  The nation’s children are being sucked into destitution, slavery or the military for private profit.  This hoax of a government only exists by a shared fear of pointing out the emperor’s clothes.

You can’t have a national intelligence agency smuggling drugs into its own country without raising the obvious question of whether it’s actually part of any government.  But it’s easy to prove the CIA isn’t part of the US government.  Go to the delaware secretary of state’s corporate registration web site (http://corp.delaware.gov/onlinestatus.shtml) and look up the CIA’s corporate registration under file# 4979825 .  They didn’t even bother to register it as a non-profit.  You can find the federal reserve registered there too, under file # 0042817, claiming to be a non-profit.  But of course the profits are made by its shareholders under the debt-money scam.

The delaware website has been sanitized, it used to give some details about the history of the CIA’s corporate charter:

Transfers: With the National Security Council to the Executive Office of the President by Reorganization Plan No. 4 of 1949, effective August 20, 1949; to independent agency status by EO 12333, December 4, 1981. Central Intelligence Group established under the National Intelligence Authority by Presidential directive, January 22, 1946, to plan and coordinate foreign intelligence activities. By National Intelligence Authority Directive 4, April 2, 1946, NIA assumed supervision of the SSU dissolution during spring and summer 1946, assigning some components to Central Intelligence Group at request of Director of Central Intelligence, and effecting incorporation of the remaining units into other War Department organizations. SSU officially abolished by General Order 16, SSU, October 19, 1946. Central Intelligence Group and National Intelligence Authority abolished by National Security Act, which created the CIA, 1947. SEE 263.1.

http://rense.com/general60/gove.htm

I saw this with my own eyes years ago.  More on Reagan’s EO 12333 (or rather GW Bush’s EO, Reagan was only in charge until his attempted assassination by Bush family friend John Hinckley.  After that he was kept doped up on meds)

“While the [Reagan] administration trumpeted its anti-terrorism policies to justify its alliance with repressive central american governments, it buried under the deepest kind of cover its campaign against hundreds of thousands of law abiding dissenters inside the US.

“According to a 1980 Heritage Foundation report [a policy white paper presented to president-elect reagan] compiled by an anonymous group within the intelligence community, “extremist political groups should be kept under surveillance, at first by reading and fileing publicly available information … the more serious surveillance can be carried out by the use of such intelligence techniques as wiretapping, mail intercepts, informants and, at least occasionally, surreptitious entries.” (5)

“The report noted that terrorist groups may be difficult to detect, since “clergymen, students, businessmen, entertainers, labor officials, journalists and government workers may engage in subversive activities without being fully aware of the extent, purpose or control of their activities.”  (5)

“Lamenting the weakening of law enforcement capabilities in the wake of the revelations by the church and pike committees in the 1970’s [these congressional investigations dealt with past abuses of the fbi and cia during the vietnam era], the report recommended “contracting with one or several of the many private groups that have specialized in providing and disseminating relevant information with legal complications.” [meaning illegally obtained information] (5)

“The group recommended scrapping the 1976 fbi guidelines instituted by then Attorney General Edward Levi [instituted in response to the above investigations].  It suggested exempting the fbi from the Freedom of Information Act.  And it called for the appointment of an attorney general and fbi director who “understand the nature of the threat and the professional tradecraft of internal security work.”  (5)

“Most of these recommendations found expression in an executive order (EO 12333) which reagan signed in december 1981.  That order permitted the fbi, among other things, to contract with private groups for intelligence gathering and to conceal the existence of such contracts; to engage in warrantless break-ins under certain circumstances (which remain classified); and to accept any material it received in the course of a counter-terrorism or coutnerintelligence investigation regardless of how the material was obtained.

“What is known today of the administration’s assault on the first amendment is vague, partly because the administration promulgated a series of directives which effectively pulled a blanket of secrecy over the government.  But despite the administration’s use of random polygraph exams, censorship agreements and legislation (passed with the consent of the aclu and the approval of congress) which adds dramatic restrictions to the freedom of information act, some clues exist as to the nature and scope of its campaign to silence dissent.” …

[FBI special agent Frank] Varelli spied on numerous groups opposed to central american policy.  He testified [to congress] that he was asked to visit the offices of cispes and the institute for policy studies, to check out the locations of filing cabinets, alarms, exits and fire escapes.  He was told that the work had been authorized by the NSC and the White House.  Soon after his visits, these offices were broken into.  In texas, he worked closely with members of Rev.  Moon’s church, who had been hired by the FBI to disrupt cispes events on the southern methodist university campus.  “Whenever CISPES mounted a lecture or demonstration, members of CARP (the collegiate arm of the Moon organization) were on hand to throw rocks and start fights.”

He also came to know a network of rightwing salvadoran spies financed and organized by a group of wealthy salvadoran exiles in the US. He arranged to provide the names of airline travelers enroute to el salvador to the fbi, which was able to look up their names in a database of leftist salvadorans provided to the fbi by death squad leader Roberto d’Aubussion. The FBI then alerted the salvadoran national guard to the arrival of suspected subversives. He arranged with the salvadoran consulate to get the names of american activists who were applying for visas to el salvador. He testified that much of the information stolen from activists offices in the US (including the names of salvadoran activists) had been provided to the salvadoran national guard, probably costing many salvadorans their lives.

That doesn’t begin to scratch the surface of GW Bush’s war on central america (see the torture links in the reference section) which made it a haven for sweat shops that decimated american industries.  But at least back in those days they were embarrassed by such revelations, there was even talk of prosecuting the criminals.  Not any more.  Everything and anything can be done in the name of “national security” with a straight face.  They still work for foreign interests according to Sibel Edmond’s testimonial (http://www.classifiedwoman.com/), and they still wear funny hats, but the joke is wearing thin.  Let’s at least admit that they’re lying.

Foreign Troops to Confiscate American Guns Under UN Treaty

“Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order … tomorrow they will be grateful.”-Attributed to Henry Kissinger during the 1991 Bilderberg meeting

For those who’ve been wondering how the domestic gun grabbers or the United Nations think they’re going to get away with gun control here at home, one need look no further than Article 15 of the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty.

Many American troops are patriots who understand their oaths to uphold the Constitution, so they can’t be counted upon to confiscate guns. But foreign troops are another story.

Article 15 of the UN Arms Trade Treaty, if ratified, provides for foreign “assistance to implement the Treaty,” and mandates that nations who can provide requested support must do so if requested by member nations. That includes legal, financial, technical as well as “material” assistance to enforce a treaty that declares “recreational, cultural, historical and sporting activities” to be the “exclusively” recognized reasons for lawful private ownership, and which further recognizes the “inherent rights” of the State (i.e. nations under the treaty) to self-defense, but makes no mention of the rights of the individual.

Read the language of Article 15 for yourself:

Article 15
International Assistance

In fulfilling the obligation of this Treaty, States Parties may seek, inter alia, legal assistance, legislative assistance, technical assistance, institutional capacity building, material assistance or financial assistance. States, in a position to do so, shall provide such assistance. States Parties may contribute resources to a voluntary trust fund to assist requesting States Parties requiring such assistance to implement the Treaty.

States Parties shall afford one another the widest measure of assistance, consistent with their respective legal and administrative systems, in investigations, prosecutions and judicial proceedings in relation to the violations of the national measures implemented to comply with obligations under of the provisions of this Treaty.

Each State Party may offer or receive assistance, inter alia, through the United Nations international, regional, subregional or national organizations, non-governmental organizations or on a bi-lateral basis. Such assistance may include technical, financial, material and other forms of assistance as needed, upon request.

Will foreign troops be going door-to-door to ensure compliance with new gun registry policies, imposed limits on ammunition and magazines, or in enforcing outright confiscation? Joint training exercises conducted between U.S. armed forces and various foreign armies have trained to do just that.

In 2010, the Infowars crew covered Operation Vigilant Guard, a joint training exercise in Chicago, in which U.S. troops drilled with Eastern bloc troops to partner in stopping terrorism, dealing with meth dealers and WMDs, as well as in gun confiscation. Countless other exercises have taken place on U.S. soil involving similar joint operations for a martial law occupation with the participation of foreign troops: …

And what happens when the government has a monopoly on guns?  Will our robber baron owners who financed the rise of hitler show the way into peace and harmony?  For my answer I refer you to this article:

Spain’s Central Bank Loots its Social Security Fund

Thus converting bought-and-paid-for assets, entitlements to retirees, into future tax liabilities for their offspring.   As noted below, the US has been doing this for years (starting under the clinton admin), spain’s fraud is just more transparent because no one else is buying spain’s bonds.  The same will happen here.  Are the outlines of the real rulers of the world starting to take shape?  They aren’t politicians or generals or think tank operatives.  Look at who owns “sovereign” debt (backed by taxes enforced with guns).   That’s who owns you and everyone else who uses the currency backed by that debt.

With Spanish 10Y yields hovering at a ‘relatively’ healthy 5%, having been driven inexorably lower on the promise of ECB assistance at some time in the future, the market has become increasingly unsure of just who it is that keeps bidding for this stuff. Well, wonder no longer. As the WSJ notes, Spain has been quietly tapping the country’s richest piggy bank, the Social Security Reserve Fund, as a buyer of last resort for Spanish government bonds – with at least 90% of the €65 billion ($85.7 billion) fund has been invested in increasingly risky Spanish debt. Of course, this is nothing new, the US (and the Irish) have been using quasi-government entities to fund themselves in a mutually-destructive circle-jerk for years – the only difference being there are other buyers in the Treasury market, whereas in Spain the marginal buyer is critical to support the sinking ship. The Spanish defend the use of pension funds to buy bonds as sustainable as long as it can issue bonds – and yet the only way it can actually get the bonds off in the public markets is through using the pension fund assets. The pensioners sum it up perfectly “We are very worried about this, we just don’t know who’s going to pay for the pensions of those who are younger now,” or those who are older we would add.

Prescription for Peace: Stop Abandoning Children to the State

It is generally known (back to medieval or ancient times) that deprivation of sensory stimuli like voice and vision in the early phases of human life will cause irreversible mental retardation in the child. Also the prevention of child play will cause intellectual deficits in the adult. But eyes, ears and the nose are not the only human sensory systems.

Additionally there are the two body sensor systems, the “somatosensors”. One is the vestibular sensor for maintaining orientation and upright walk. The other one is the skin, for sensing touch.

MOTHER BONDING IS ESSENTIAL FOR PEACE

Through the work of James W. Prescott, Ph.D. and various others until the mid 1970s it was established that these previously neglected senses are of overwhelming importance for the development of social abilities for adult life. Their deprivation in childhood is a major cause for adult violence.

James W. Prescott, Ph.D., was a health scientist administrator at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), one of the Institutes of the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) from 1966 to 1980. He created and directed the Developmental Behavioral Biology Program at the NICHD where he initiated NICHD supported research programs that documented how the failure of “Mother Love” in infant monkeys adversely affected the biological development of their brains. These astonishing abnormal brain changes underlie the behaviors of depression, impulse dyscontrol and violence that result from mother-infant separations.

CULTURES THAT PUNISH INFANTS OR REPRESS SEXUALITY ARE VIOLENT

These behavioral effects were confirmed in his studies on primitive cultures including the effects of sensory deprivation of human sexual pleasure and affection during adolescence. The results of these scientific studies do not support the many traditional religious and cultural values throughout the world, which deny the importance of “Mothering” and of youth affectional sexual relationships for peaceful and loving behaviors.

The continuation of this research was obstructed and eventually cancelled by the NICHD. Even the existence and results of these NICHD supported research programs was consciously omitted in a recent NIH publication.

On this web site, you can read the whole story.
