Hi folks, Iím Alan Watt and this is Cutting Through The Matrix on June the 8th, 2014. I seldom, if ever, really plan what Iím going to talk about because thereís so much you can talk about, and in one hour you canít say an awful lot, on anything actually.  And thereís your problem. Thatís why you generally go to college and universities for higher education, or more insight, and even thatís a joke today. Because everything has changed dramatically, for a myriad of reasons too.  Apart from that, the control factor is always involved in whatís taught to youngsters, to guarantee that what they are taught brings about the culture and civilization for their particular future that masters have already arranged for them to have.

 

Professors themselves can go so far with certain topics; many of them are quite happy to do what theyíre told and get their tenures and so on, and talk a lot of nonsense and at the same time bring in the money, and at the same time churn out the students that the establishment feels happy with. So nothing is ever as it seems. So much of the topics now in university are idealistic. They are idealistic topics, emotive topics, as opposed to really the practical topics or intellectual topics. A lot of folk get disconcerted being in university and drop out because of those reasons, that something is left out, theyíre not being fulfilled. And in fact, theyíre being brainwashed and thatís really what theyíre trying to find out. Thatís the answer to it all, eventually that clicks with them, maybe after theyíve left, and they find out what was wrong.

 

Every generation is subject to its own particular time of existence; and they view the past in the same way. So the past is always colored by the present when youíre looking backwards from the present point of view. And itís very difficult for people to understand how people lived in the past, apart from the TV dramas and so on which are often completely fictitious.  They give the wrong impressions basically of how things were. People in the past, before say the 1800s, really were pretty static in their ways and their views and opinions and so on. Before technology came in in a big way with the revolutions of machinery, you found that people lived in an agricultural society basically. For the majority of people in every country that was their existence. Living on the land, being partly self-sufficient, sometimes completely self-sufficient, but also selling off portions of their produce to the big cities, etc., or even to those around them, the little towns and so on.

 

But most of the people really were classed as peasants across the whole planet. You find itís very difficult to imagine yourself being a peasant, because we look back, as I say, from the present circumstances and try to put ourselves into the past. The peasantsí needs were very little. The forms of control of society were internal. By internal controls I mean you were taught a hard-core religion basically; that gave you all your reason for things happening, the way things were, your existence, your very existence. Things were very simplistic. Education was at a minimal, if even present at all, for the peasantry. Therefore, everything came from the church and the state basically; so these were authorized systems, from the top of course.  But the internal controls on the average individual meant very little crime, even in his own communities, except for the occasional psychopathic type that exists at all classes and levels of society. But most of the people knew the basic rules, the taboos as they call them. 

 

We find once the big technology came in, the Industrial Revolution came in, and folk were crammed into cities, into inhumane conditions, religion started to go on the wane because it didnít answer the terrible circumstances the public had to live in for the first time. Being crammed into these dirty, dirty buildings, inhumane conditions, working conditions too, 16 hours a day, no compensation, no welfare or anything like that. If a man was sick his wife had to take over his position in the mines, for instance, coal mines in Europe; and that went on right up into, really, the beginning of the 20th century.  So we really donít know what it was like to live back then.

 

But what they did give them too, was a fixed system. Thatís when the specialists started to arise to find out how to control the public, basically, how to control them. They put out, they were going to give them basic education, very basic, minimalistic education so they could even read instructions in the factories they worked in and so on. They were given the penny novels, things that kept them off; today itís replaced by television and movies and so on. But back then it was novels, very simplistic novels of heroism, things which they would never get to see themselves or do but they could imagine themselves in that position. You identify if youíre a male with the hero and the women identify with the heroine. So it was a very simplistic formula for keeping people into fantasyland where they can discuss it with their own peer group and escape for a little while from their conditions that they were actually living in.  So internal controls had to shift when the Industrial Revolution came in. This is very important to understand how things have been changing ever since, up to the present time.

 

You find too, that obedience to authority was always stressed by the state church; whichever was the ruling church always stressed obedience to the state and to the authorities. This again began to wane in the 18th century and you found revolutions breaking out too. When people started to complain they formed groups and they were just fed up with their lot. They werenít having it anymore basically. So thatís how things changed.

 

We are still going through the system today, of changes. Today thereís a lot more scientific psychology being used on the general population than ever before, to try and keep restraints upon them. Thatís where the changes, you get both systemsÖ Youíve got external changes working today, external control of the state, the threat of the use of force against you, and you also have more and more internal controls, how to be a good citizen; youíre told what a good citizen is basically.

 

Because we are social creatures itís easier to tell people through persuasive means, many of them that youíre unaware of that are being used against you or to you or upon you, and you go along because you want to belong to a peer group, whatever it happens to be. Even the rebellious types for teenagers, the fashions are given to them.  The language, thereís always a language that goes with a particular age group, so that they are the only ones who understand the in-group conversations, things like that. Itís all given to them by the authorities who own the entertainment industry and the fashion industry and so on. They all work together, and they always have by the way. Even the body piercing all came out with Hollywood showing the tattoos, body piercing and so on, with characters in movies, knowing certain people would identify with them and go for it, especially a certain age group.  Itís down to a perfect art today in fact.

 

You have no idea what goes on in Hollywood, for instance. You donít know that at one time they did surveys; they still do surveys, constantly, with their particular groups that they have to come in. They show them different clips of movies, or sometimes whole movies, and they ask them questions. But they also bring in the neuroscientists today who literally wire them up. They wire them up and they will show them clips from different particular movies to find out what really makes the personís mind jump all over inside their brain space, the different parts of the brain. Different kinds of movies, thrillers, horrors, things like thatÖ Itís actually a fantastic way to map the brain. A very quick way is through movies in fact; your guard is down.  Youíre not being questioned the same way by people, and they simply do it in real time; they monitor your brainwaves and different parts of the brain in real time, and they know exactly what turns you on. They know of the sexual centers, which youíll see sadomasochism in pretty well all the movies today as they churn them out, things like that, the dominance, etc. in sadomasochism. It really does work awfully, awfully easily upon most people.  Taboos are broken and the fantasy goes to the extreme so people get turned on with it.  Because itís a basic instinct, the sexual centers of the brain. You have a basic instinct, therefore they use that in you. The same with food too of course, in ads, they wire you up for that too and they can tell you what really makes your mouth water and what makes you start concentrating on what youíre seeing, is it the ice cream or what it happens to be. Neuroscience is heavily involved in this.

 

But when you take it out of that arena and you see itís all being used upon you, you get the same thing in social politics and various forms of indoctrination, and persuasion especially. Itís a perfect art today. Perfect.  These really create, as I say, more of a passive control, where you conform, you conform to the peer group you identify with, and the sect inside the group that you belong to or you want to belong to.  You have external controls applied to you, although youíre unaware that thatís being done to you, you think itís all your own choices of course, youíre being the rebel or whatever it happens to be. But nothing is further from the truth.

 

Very few folk today, very, very few really have their own mind. And even then itís almost impossible to completely have your own mind when you can never be assured of the actual true facts on any particular thing. Thatís how difficult this maze is. Because as I say, education itself is a written-out format, with psychologists, neuroscientists, sociologists, all these different factors involved in it, to make sure that you come out with the right opinions and the right ways of looking at things, the authorized ways of looking at things for the future. 

 

This ideology, or way of creating ideology, and basically conformity, to even radical groupsÖ Thatís conformity, youíre conforming to the ideology presented to you, and obviously authorized from the top too. Because they donít ever, ever have any unplanned revolts, believe you me. Then youíre going under a particular system, that you think youíre rebelling in. But youíre allowed to rebel, whether you like it or not, or know it or not in fact. Sometimes theyíll let it go to a certain stage, like on campuses and things, and broadcast it even too. But thatís all part of the planned structure; they know that it will never get out of hand, etc. etc.

 

Sometimes they use certain groups, they create them in fact, to do rebellion, even small terrorist acts.  The 60s was full of terrorist acts, way more than today; and it was all the radical groups within, especially, the US. That was the main country to see this happening within. The Marxist ideologies involved with it, some across Europe, the Baader Meinhof Group, these kind of ones too, but that was all basically monitored from its start to its finish basically, for those who donít know that.  So I always warn people not to get involved in something because itís an ideology, which you think is yours. Oh thatís wrong, I agree with what that guy says, therefore Iíll follow that guy. Itís a very simplistic way of thinking. And believe you me, the guys that are put out for you to follow are coached on how to talk, how to put things across, the technique thatís applied to their personality, and youíll often fall for it.

 

A great thing for any group follower to do is to listen to the term Ďweí. When the leader always says we are going to, we, we, us, us, they canít do that to us. When you start to stop, youíre depersonalizing yourself and becoming part of the Ďusí or the Ďweí. Be very careful of that. Because itís a technique where often youíll have nothing really in common with the standard of living, the income, the real ideals and plans of the person at the top. You have nothing at all in common, and they have nothing in common with you, except youíre awfully useful to them. So be very, very careful how youíre played. And people are played all the time in politics or anything involved that seemingly is politics or political. Be very, very careful.

 

Youíll find what was awfully popular to be used on the general public from the Industrial Revolution onwards, well into the 20th century, which is slacking off today, was the ideology of saving. Benjamin Franklin was famous for putting out his little Poor Richard Stories, and a penny saved is a penny earned, all these kind of things. It was always to do with the future, the future, the future. And people would invest in the future, financially and otherwise too, always putting off the present for a better tomorrow. Of course these ideologies too were used to the extreme with, say, Marxist tendencies when you saw the Soviet Union come into being, where a whole collection of countries, under the Soviet Union, really were striving, supposedly, for a better tomorrow, the workerís paradise.  And when they first took over they flung themselves into it, the people flung themselves into this, thinking for the first time itís our system, itís our countries, itís our decisions that are being put into force and effect for a better tomorrow and our children will reap the harvest. Of course that simply wasnít happening.

 

But weíre always used, for this technique, for a better tomorrow. The West still uses it today in fact, for a better tomorrow, the global society.  Theyíll even bring in things that appeal to your emotions. Again, like helping the people across the world for their standard of living to be raised. And we know from experience that the big corporations at the very top of the tree, especially today, itís nothing but corporations interlocked, often with the same shareholders, dominant shareholders owning them all, that use these Third World countries, to exploit them basically for minerals, their resources, and their very cheap labor.  Theyíve been doing it all through the 20th century to the present time, but now itís under of the term of globalization. Oh, itís a wonderful thing to look forward to, with a global government one day, and fairness and justice for all. All of the usual slogans are put out there.  But the big boys at the top have no intention of having any kind of equality in the world whatsoever. And that apparently is human nature. That is human nature.

 

Human nature is so disregarded by idealists, and especially the followers, that human nature wonít allow that to happen. You have the power impulse that exists amongst many people and again, in all classes youíll find the power impulse, those who know how to dominate others and bully them, or talk over them, yell at them, have them cowering to get what they want, things like that. Other ones are more intelligent and they can manipulate more easily, the better psychopaths, to use folk around them of course.  But the techniques today are so perfected, so perfected that the public are completely unaware that theyíre being used on them all the time.  Thereís not a script that comes out of television that isnít gone over many, many times by different groups within the agency putting them out, and reviews and so on, before you ever get the script read or shown to you. Thatís how delicate everything is today and perfected it is.

 

So getting back to people, especially movements which try to use you, itís always for a better tomorrow.  Some will go back to the past, especially in the US where they had a brief period of prosperity for the working classes, from the end of World War II basically through the 50s and 60s into the 70s, and drastically declining then on. A small brief period where for the first time they could afford, a working-class guy in a factory could afford to buy a house. Mind you, everything was much cheaper, the dollar was worth more.  But the way that the money system is set up it constantly is devalued, because itís backed by nothing but debt, as we well know. So inflation is built into the money system that we all are under, the same con, where money is loaned out to you through governments, or agencies of the government, and itís all based on debt so it naturally inflates all the time.

 

But putting things off till tomorrow for some great utopia is nonsensical. Absolutely nonsensical. Itís never happened in history. And it never will happen in history, or the future history I should say, looking back, it wonít happen; it just doesnít happen at all.  Youíll always get eternal optimists too, and remember too, that all segments of society, and all psychologies involved within society are incredibly well studied. Youíll find leaders put out for that too, the eternal optimists that come out with their motivational courses, etc., theyíre always up... Oh yeah, itís terrible right now but itís going to be a lot better tomorrow, I guarantee it.  Öand so on.  And theyíre never down it appears.  And people like to follow that, as they would often follow a religion, you see. The same techniques are in play, in fact, a form of idealism for tomorrow and itís not all that bad.

 

But we find that when we go through all of these changes, as I say from the 1700s onwards, the internal controls that used to keep us going along with this system, because we werenít being bashed over the head by military, butts of rifles and things like that, to keep us in line, the internal controls are starting to wear off again today.  When that happens you find the militarization Ė this is standard in history Ė the militarization of the system within, and it takes many, many forms. Itís not all uniforms.  Itís not all just government agencies. Youíll also find it within compulsory moving for employees; if you want to keep this job youíve got to move from here to there, but theyíll give you a little increase in your pay and it becomes worth it. That also comes under this big, big system of militarization. Itís moving what is stable for you, uniform for you, into something else, for a reward of some other kind, or else you lose what you already have. Youíre actually being forced and coerced whether you like it or not, you see.

 

No major change in societal structure is allowed, unless itís forethought out in advance by big think tanks, many big think tanks. And everything certainly is, minutely in fact. Not just by one think tank, say, on one topic, it might have about a dozen think tanks working on that one topic. Then they compare all information.  Then it goes for review, and further review and assessment, and rewritten, etc. etc, until they get the plan that they want to deal with possible upcoming problems. In the past of course they thought about revolution that had to be nipped in the bud, if it was not under their control that is.  They decided for the West, for instance, to give them more materialistic goods, which would offset their dissatisfaction with things that were happening in societal change around them, which involved them and affected them too. Because people were becoming dislocated in their minds as to their place in the world and their own little society and so on; things were changing so rapidly in the 20th century, especially in the latter half of the 20th century. The big think tanks were heavily employed to keep the order to be maintained by those already in rule, and I donít mean politicians.

 

You feel your needs are being satisfied when you have more cheap things to buy, whether you like them or not. And again, what you want has nothing to do with what you need of course. If you ask peopleís opinions on what they want, itís nothing to do youíll find out with what they actually need, even for basic survival. So the fantasies, these things which are fantastical in a sense because theyíre disassociated from survival, become of prime importance to them, because itís being pushed towards them to stop them from being too dissatisfied and perhaps forming organizations that get to the bottom of things to find out whatís really wrong. Therefore everyoneís happy theyíre getting their goods for cheap. Even if theyíre low down on the pay scale they can still afford their cell phone and all the rest of the stuff today, which thatís not by chance, by the way. Itís all planned that way.

 

In the 19th century into the early 20th century, for instance, Britain was a fantastic country for studying people. The amount of experts involved from the top, all through society, to study people was enormous; still is today. Today itís easier with the Internet because they get your instant data and they can keep tabs on you. But back then they had many different levels of specialists working on keeping order, maintaining order and keeping the public willing to go and join the military in times of war, that type of thing, to ensure that theyíd always win and the status quo would be maintained. But they had the wages of the people categorized, in all different categories of society, and they knew how much you would need for a family of four, say, as an income, how much rent would be Ė it was often rent, not mortgages, because very few folk could really afford their houses, especially in Scotland, say, and Ireland, places like that; it was all council housing Ė and how much you would spend on food.  But they always left enough over to make sure that the publicans Ė interesting term too, publicans, meaning those who owned bars and pubs; they were licensed by the government to operate. They could go in there and theyíd have their escape for a while. They didnít have so much television years ago and this was their escape, the social escape where they can go in there and get half drunk, or completely drunk, and boast to their friends, to get affirmation of their existence in the way that they wanted, always out of proportion with their reality and situation of course but that didnít matter. It worked awfully well.  The Soviet Union did the same thing, where the workers were kept happy with very cheap vodka, which you could buy without standing in line as youíd have to sometimes do for food outside of Moscow. 

 

Now, weíre always under restraints, as I say, internal restraints Ė self-policing they call it today by the way Ė where you have your taboos inserted upon you, or into you.  You internalize them and they will work upon you of course too.  And we think weíre free. But weíre not really free because true freedom is freedom from restraints. You see. Of course you say, well you canít have that, thereíll be anarchy. Well, true freedom from restraints would mean that psychopaths could go and do what they wanted to do with impunity.  So naturally there has to be some kind of restraint. But of course any society, down to the so-called primitive societies, all have their taboos for restraints so as they can function as a society. The problem in the West and with education and those in power happens to be is because itís so perfected, to give you different kinds of restraints for other purposes rather than to keep basic order. And itís to make sure that you simply donít protest or turn against even the system youíre living within. 

 

People think, for instance, that democracy is the end run of all movements. Those at the top, the ones who even push it and use you to push it, are liars. Because they have studied all the courses at the very, very top. Theyíve studied all the great historians in history and the philosophers in history and they know that democracy is only one part if weíre always evolving in a societal way, thatís only one stage we go through.  And weíve gone through the different stages before, feudalism and so on. Now weíre into a thing called democracy, and really, itís already over with; it never really got off the ground to an extent in fact. It helped internal restraints, self-policing, for a long time. But now itís waning and when it wanes of course, they do know that militarization occurs.  From the very top they say it must occur, more militarization, basically coercion to obedience of authority, all authorities, to make you follow the line and behave.

 

So fear makes you compromise, it makes you self-police, in the new fashion, fear of being caught or accused of anything at all.  Of course that was also perfected in the Soviet Union when so many spies were inserted amongst the populations, in their streets and so on, listening to conversations.  And you get called upÖ Did you say this? Did you say that? Thatís taboo. Today we have all of these things. There are so many topics youíre not allowed to even talk about. Itís not because the ones at the top care about particular segments of society that are being talked about or complained about. Itís because theyíre teaching you, by all the means they can, by what seems to be, seems to be valid excuses, you see, for you to self-police what you say and what you think especially. Itís all to do with changing how and what youíre going to think about.  In Pavlovian style when youíre told, donít think about that, donít talk about this or that, donít even ask a question about this or that as a child, and children should ask all the questions they want by the way, when you canít, then itís for a different reason. Thereís something else behind the topic itself of the question.

 

Now, militarization in itself happens when, as I say, the self-policing starts to fail.  Things are wrong, theyíre obviously wrong. People, today especially, are really noticing the planned inflation, or quantitative easing as itís called by, say, the US Federal Reserve, where all the top banks in the world actually are constantly devaluating their currency.  Theyíre devaluing the currency constantly, which makes you pay more and more paper money or whatever it happens to be for the same goods. Itís quite simple. Everyone is noticing it, therefore you have the militarization aspect of conformity, donít grouse too much. If you grouse about things youíre antigovernment, another term that is taught in Pavlovian fashion to get you to respond and switch off in a specific way. Switch off from the topic, donít complain about it, obey. You see. And therefore you donít have freedom. And you donít have self-policing just to the same extent. You have a form of self-policing but you also have external controls as well, of whoís listening, whoís talking, etc. etc., whoís complaining, whoís reporting.

 

You can see too, how this works with expansionism of countries or states or nations. During their time of expansion in the past, when they were going out to do their empire building, there was more acceptance by the public, because they had to be kept to an extent a bit happier than they had been before, financially and otherwise, to be patriotic to go off and join the militaries and go off and fight various wars, which were completely unjust of course. They were conquering on behalf of those who wanted the riches within those countries, not for the people who fought the wars, the actual sloggers and foot soldiers, etc. But that changes. Once the expansionism is over and the patriotism dies down then itís well understood that now you need a new technique to keep the people stable, obedient and so on. Thatís what Iím talking about right now in fact, are these techniques being used today.

 

They knew, for instance, that as they went into expansionism or expansionism eventually waned, which it has done, international corporations would have to keep expanding to keep a power elite in place.  Therefore they came up with the idea of free trade.  That was to be a thing of the future, back in the late 1800s, well-documented, from Britain especially, and through that technique they would bring in a global society which would be ruled in the same form that they used to use militaries to do it. Now they would use simply commerce to do it, international corporations.  You donít know that through free trade your tax money is subsidizing the same big international corporations to build factories.  We build them for them in Third World countries; they get it basically for free.  And the Third World countries supply the cheap labor and the minerals, etc., at a fraction of the price they can get it elsewhere. So everything works out for the established control.  But they sell it to the general public as helping the poor and raising the standard of living and so on and so on and so on. Thatís how things are sold to the public, very simplistically.

 

They appeal to your idealism and your natural humanitarian aspects and it works awfully well. But in reality, as I say, when military expansionism stops and conquering and the flag-waving stops, thatís how they have to do it. And at the same time they start giving you massive, more quantities of cheap goods from these countries that are producing the things, as opposed to quality. In fact, quality constantly goes down and down and down, where to maximize profits Ė because this is the time of ultimate greed right now, thatís ever been. To maximize the profits for the big shareholders in these corporations theyíll cut pennies, every corner they can until things are almost nonfunctional in some cases; they definitely donít last long. The cars you drive might look nice when theyíre new, but again, theyíre built to break down faster and faster.  And lots of things happen within the car, plastic deteriorates, things like that. There are even Volkswagens that come out in the past that were biodegradable, biodegradable plastic in them and they were falling apart before six months were out, literally crumbling to powder.  So things are being made cheaper and cheaper and weíre buying junk that doesnít last long at all, and quantity has replaced quality altogether.

 

You canít go to university today without running into Marxism, which is taught openly, has been for an awful long time, all through the Cold War too. Because professors were brought in from Eastern Europe and put into universities in preparation for all of that too, to make sure the right kind of student was churned out for the changes of the future.  And Marx does not explain the causes of things at all. But today you canít go into university without it.  Whatever topic it is, you have to look at it from a Marxist point of view and so on and so on. You canít look at the past with todayís ideologies, through those eyes. You canít do it. It canít be done. Therefore if you do go through that, and you must look at it from this perspective or that perspective or whatever it happens to be, you get a totally false idea of the past.

 

In the past religion was still dominant because religion encompassed the basic values of human experience. In religion you internalize it and you examine it of course, because we are human creatures. Science initially used to say that they were not in conflict with religion, but of course they were, and they have become predominant now, and bashing religions, trying to say that everything is rational when they themselves are not rational because their theories keep changing, all the time. So power struggles go on within all the different professions and so on.

 

One area which has been heavily discussed for a long time by the big think tanks, employed by governments and those who run governments, the big private organizations comprised of the big industrialists, international corporations, they have their foundations of course that employ many of the guys who become politicians, and they are sworn allegiance to the ones who first hired them which are the big foundational organizations. Youíll find that theyíve been very concerned about, again, internal control. Because weíre at an age today where regardless of internal control there are too many dissatisfactions cropping up, as we go through massive shifts between the old systems, going up through society to eventually the nation-state and now into the global society; in the nation-state you become more disillusioned than ever, more disaffected than ever. You donít know who you are anymore, what you belong to; itís not pushed. And everything really is very impersonal; thatís the problem with it all. So there are many, many groups forming of course trying to get something back; thatís the first response the citizenry have, especially if theyíre starting to lose what they used to have personally, financial or otherwise. They want to go back to the past, and that will never be allowedÖ never be allowed. 

 

Even by itself it canít happen that way anyway because you need the total system of community and society to go along together. That can never happen. It can never happen today because weíre not the 20th century man anymore. Weíre not the 19th century man or woman anymore. Weíve changed since then. The whole world structure has changed.  And the economic system has changed. But in the past they used to use, again, shock weaponry. They called it shock weaponry, from the ancient times of using clubs to spears to arrows, missiles and so on.  All the way through the 20th century it was missiles, projectiles and all that. A small force heavily armed could always keep the public in check, if they were let loose upon the public.

 

Today, even with the big internal controls, or I should say, the big internal organizations they have amassed in preparation for any meltdown of society, through these changes, which they understand perfectly well, then they will meet all resistance with overwhelming force, right down to domestic disputes. Weíve had many examples in newspapers of that over the years.  This is their form of controlling. But even at that it cannot totally be controlled by pure physical, brute, shock force. So therefore they went heavily, again, into other forms of control. Electronic control is a big, big, big one that Brzezinski and others have talked about, by using electrical pulses through the atmosphere, very cheap to produce, which can control the human mind to an extent, and definitely the mood. We find going way back to Teslaís time for instance, he talked about knocking out whole cities with pulses, making people unconscious if need be, or even killing them.

 

This has never been let go by the power elite who understand they have to have other measures of completely controlling society without destroying everything in the process. So therefore technotronic warfare, as itís called, is definitely in production today. Itís being used to an extent through all the Wi-Fi, through the cell phone towers, etc. You take the cell phone towers themselves, itís a network of antenna that can broadcast simultaneously in certain frequencies, regardless of all the cell calls theyíre taking and passing on, information theyíre passing along.  They can do that independently and create a particular atmosphere within the public, etc. etc. So therefore thatís why these forms of control, external control, are incredibly well-financed. And there are surveys going on all the time, in various secretive departments of private agencies working with governments, to find out the best way to control the populations should anything occur that would break up society as we go through the big changes that are all planned of course.

 

Because the world is always in a stage of planning for the future and itís never discussed openly to the public at all. Youíre kept entertained, youíre kept distracted. Your local AM radio shows, and FM, across nations are simply devilís advocates where they give you emotional topics of local incidents.  They come out as a devilís advocate, knowing youíre going to phone in and complain, oh no, I donít agree with that.† They get involved with emotive topics, but itís nothing to do with whatís really happening to you on any large scale whatsoever. These are all carefully planned that way, not just for ratings.

 

Society as it stood from the 20th century to the present canít be static. It canít be that way forever. Itís impossible. Because we were raised basically on a form of competition. Everyone was taught at school to compete, compete, compete. And if you can compete and get to the top youíll have a minority of winners and all the rest are losers. And the winners supposedly go into either governmental positions, as they did in the UK for instance, or theyíd work for big corporations. In the UK they didnít stress, for instance, private enterprise. That wasnít pushed in the schools, because they already had the big boys controlling the big corporations.  They didnít want other competition to come into it so they taught most folk in the UK to become employees and they could go up to a higher scale of income if you could join these big corporations as an accountant or an economist or something like that. But in the US they stressed competition which would lead, hopefully they thought, to again, more private enterprise. For a short time they had a success as again, a minority rose to the top. And they had the competition and they had the corporations spring up very quickly. Once they sprung up of course, corporations by nature form cartels and they keep the prices standard for themselves, and they donít want competition coming in so they monopolize everything. Thatís the history basically of corporations; they always monopolize everything that they need to produce whatever it is theyíre producing.  All areas of production are monopolized.  And that canít go on forever, obviously. Weíre at a stagnant state today where all up-and-coming corporations are simply appendages of the multinationals that already exist. Theyíre putting up variations of their plants in different countries, but theyíre still owned by the corporations, the same corporations.  So they decided they canít have any more competition.

 

But competition itself destroys everything. It doesnít form friendships, competition; it creates envy and jealousies, etc. At one time, going back to the Middle Ages, communities had to be self-sufficient.  Any surplus they could trade with their neighboring communities and things like that, but they were not in competition with the external communities, until the businessmen got involved and started to use whole communities as their business basically. We found this with the weavers and things like that. Guys would rise up, theyíd get local backing, local governmental backing for authority, and they would take over and become, basically the public free enterprise system became theirs, they owned it basically, and they had everybody working for peanuts. Thatís the way of human nature, unfortunately.

 

But itís very destructive. It canít go on forever; itís not meant to. Of course the boys at the top, who study all of these things in society, get word through their think tanks to their bosses and they plan for the future so they can still maintain control, although sometimes it doesnít appear as though theyíre still in control to the public. But theyíre still in control, the same old families. Communities, though, have been destroyed. We see it, too, with the UN, the United Nations pushing the formation of city-states, where they amalgamate all the communities around them into one huge massive city.  Once again, your identity becomes depersonalized because you now belong to this massive thing, that is sometimes the size of a small country, and you really feel impersonal, everything is impersonalized and youíre sort of drifting along in this.  Youíre a nobody in this massive system. That has an effect psychologically upon the people too. Many breakdowns occur to it. Others go to extremes trying to find something to belong to, and of course they can be used too by the wrong people.

 

Part of the problem too is the very effect that industrialization has.  At one time work was something you did naturally. Many cultures, Iíve mentioned before, primitive cultures, have no word for work. You did it as a matter of your daily course of things and work was minimal to an extent, and pleasurable too. It was necessary but you didnít really think of it as hard, hard labor. The industrial system and profits created a misery system for most folk. An inhumane system for sure. We know that also what goes along with it too, is so-called labor saving in the workforces. In other words, they bring in more mechanization, computerization to get more profit out of things. But that profit also takes a lot of energy to produce, through the mechanization process, whichever fuel theyíre using or electricity in itself as well, and people are left, then, with no work to do.  Because as I say work is a necessary thing, and they have no function, therefore theyíre laid off, theyíre put on welfare.  And the welfare system was created primarily to deal with this, the thing that would come down the road, weíre at it today of course. Because they knew it would reach this stage eventually. It also creates a very cheap workforce when you do need the actual labor itself.

 

Now, when it comes to government, and human nature in itself, government always expands. It doesnít matter what department is set up or its primary function is supposed to be, once itís set up and there are hierarchies involved within the structure or the sector or department that was set up, they want to expand to increase their power. Power is their motive for being, not for the task they were set out to do. Because everyone wants a better job, more money, more status, for powerís sake, therefore every department will expand. Because they go back to their top bosses of course eventually and say, look we have all these responsibilities to take care of, even if their responsibility when they set up in the first place was one thing to look after, now they have taken over half a dozen or a couple of dozen functions and they say, itís impossible for everything to continue without us. Thatís the way it always works.

 

Thereís never a limitation put on anything to disband it after a certain time. They keep them in power and they expand like cancers. And they become, again, consumers, they consume our cash, our taxes, etc. And theyíre all liable in this present setup Ė itís been here for a long time actually Ė theyíre all liable to incredible corruption. They all have access to lobby groups, continuously.  The citizenry canít get into their national governments to complain about something, but the lobbyists have instant access.  And donít kid yourself that money and different favors donít change hands. They certainly do. Politicians are bought and paid for before theyíre even selected to get put in. Theyíre well vetted by the establishment before you even hear their names.

 

At one time nations looked towards the US Constitution as something to emulate and they wished they had in their own countries. Because on paper it looks fantastic.  You have the three branches of government and theyíre supposed to have eight aspects of sovereignty in all. But they donít because the three branches donít stay within the limits of their own function. Each one goes around the basic tenets they were formed to handle and they try to, again, get more and more power, until things become dysfunctional as theyíre all competing with each other for power. Then you have a president who is looked upon more as an emperor in this modern day than an actual president, someone who presides over something; thatís what it means, to preside over a governmental parliamentary type system or a congressional system. That doesnít happen today. He literally is involved in all the branches of government. Today you literally have rule by lawyers, basically, as opposed to the rule of law.

 

The US is supposed to be set up so that if the three branches of government couldnít agree on a particular policy or whatever, then it simply wasnít done. But now it goes to the Supreme Court and lawyers decide, they have the final say in things. And thatís not the way it was supposed to be set up at all. So lawyers, as I say, who, again, are under the sway of the big-money boys at the top, are given their marching orders as to how to push for something. And they get what their Masters want. So it makes a farce out of everything altogether. Another thing that makes a farce of government too, and constitutions, is that if the government does not have control over corporations, and the money system entirely, the creation of it and so on, then it cannot possibly be sovereign. In fact, the opposite is true. The corporations and the money boys own the government. Thatís how it really works, in all countries of the Western world today.

 

Most folk in the US are kept blissfully ignorant of their past, their real past, their true past. In the 1820s, for instance, youíll find that the US states, the different states had uproar from the general populations over the corporations and what they were doing. Therefore they agreed that corporations must have a charter to exist. And the charter was a limited charter to be reviewed for renewal, if it was going to be renewed at all, according to any benefit to society and the community they had, as opposed to the detrimental effects theyíd have and so on. Thatís out the window today, completely. Corporations are immortal; they live forever basically.

 

And thatís all wrong, regardless of what you think. Because the corporations have more sway in what youíre eating, for instance. Even though most of what youíre eating, in the bread, any fiber that exists at all in it is taken from wood pulp today and chemicals are added galore; itís all waste products as well.  Most of the taste you get of what you think is food today comes from chemicals, the chemical industry.  Many byproducts, again, are chemicals and theyíre put in there to improve the taste quality. In other words, to create some kind of taste to make you think youíre actually eating food. And folk have become accustomed to it so they eat all the packaged foods and processed foods with all the different enhancers, flavor enhancers they call them, added to them, to make you think youíre actually having something awfully good and nutritious. And in actual fact itís often very poisonous and the nourishment value is pretty well zero.

 

Now, it doesnít matter how many restrictions you put on anything to do with corporations or whatever. It all ends up being decided by lawyers, not by the actual law thatís written. They will reinterpret everything to suit themselves. Everything is always being reinterpreted by lawyers. All laws always are, to suit the times, to suit the bosses that they were employed by and itís a bit of a joke to even think of it as being something static whatsoever, some rule of law.

 

I always think about the emotive topics, the way that theyíre pushed upon the public, by repetition of course Ė it works awfully well through advertising and slogans and so on Ė for you to accept all of the changes that have been decided by your betters, those way above you that youíll never, ever hear of or never mind meet. You donít know itís even happening to you. You go along with the quotations that the multicultural thing is all good. And Iím not saying itís good or bad.  What Iím saying is, the motive of pushing it upon you is not because they want to help anybody anywhere, believe you me. Itís to bring in the society that they want with a massive global workforce, which is going to be awfully cheap down the road of course, and itís also going to create massive inequalities too. By the time itís really here, where those who are working and earning a decent salary are negated by the masses of unemployed people, the people on welfare, the people on governmental assistance, because they canít afford to even survive.

 

This is the Brave New World thatís being brought in of course.  And neuroscientists, behaviorists, psychologists, and again too, different techniques and even technotronic techniques are being used upon the general population, along with all the massive authorized drugging of society through the authorized pharmacies and the authorized doctors that are nothing more than pushers for the drug companies, all working together with what you think is your government, or governments, because theyíre not yours at all. Itís all one big system.  Itís out of your control, out of your hands. And itís planned this way. Itís not by chance, and itís not always just for pure profit. Never fall for that one.

 

I always laugh at Hollywood when it says, well weíre only reflecting societyÖ Meanwhile when you go and listen to the top people talking at the big, big shows that they have, amongst themselves, in the awards, they quite openly call themselves, ĎThe Culture Creatorsí. They are well aware of what their job is supposed to be. And theyíre all prostitutes because they go along with it. They have no social conscience; thatís part of being a star. Thatís a quality that you definitely need.

 

So as I say, we donít live in the projected image thatís projected to us. A lot of people try to conform, they try to go along with the image thatís pushed to them.  But of course it ends up that you have neurosis and internal conflicts where you blame yourself for not being happy. But donít worry, hereís the pharma to help that. Thatís all planned out that way. And if you donít have that, you have even what you think is the underground system of drugs, illicit drugs, etc, which are all controlled by the same boys at the top. Youíll find, for instance, a lot of the illicit drugs are created in big pharmaceutical companies, like ecstasy and things like that. These are not little handmade pill things. These are perfectly-formed machine-made things that come out of big, big production units. So the boys have you trained one way or another that whatever is wrong with you, take a pill; they donít really care if itís illicit or authorized, you see. Theyíre both technically authorized. Thatís why in the welfare systems, and societies too, thereís a certain restriction only, by almost name, by coming down on the occasional little street runner thatís not authorized to sell them, where the big boys go totally free all the time.

 

We know that governments are heavily involved in bringing in these various drugs too, illicit drugs, etc. etc. We know that Afghanistan has the troops, our troops guarding the opium crops and heroin is flourishing more than ever before today and being brought into the US and Britain and elsewhere. Thereís been too many exposťs in the past of the CIA bringing in this kind of stuff and along with the cocaine from Latin America.  Right up to the government level, weíve heard the exposťs in the past, and the so-called inquiries that go nowhere, when the Oliver North scandal came out with the guns for drugs and things like that, scandals like that. We tend to forget it all.  But what itís showing you is that nothing is as it seems. Nothing is as it seems. But for those at the top, theyíre perfectly aware of whatís happening, why itís happening. Because theyíre generally behind it all.

 

Weíre managed completely at all possible levels. Today with the Internet youíre monitored more than ever before. Theyíve got your complete personality profile. They know your behavior, your projected behavior for the future.  If you deviate from that behavior they want to know why, immediately, and youíll tell them immediately by chatting to your friends and so on. Total information network is well underway. Well here, itís a permanent thing. Itís here. Itís not going to change.  And it will get worse and worse in fact. One day youíll get called in, or get a visit, when you deviate from your routine norms and theyíll want to know why. If youíre looking into an area that they donít quite want you to go into theyíll want to know why youíre doing this. This is pre-crime basically, one day you might go into a radical sect or something like that and theyíre nipping you in the bud before it happens. This will definitely be authorized, and youíll be mandatorily drugged or whatever it happens to be, and have psychiatric care until youíre formatted back to the person they want you to be, fit to live in the society that theyíve created for you.

 

But Iíve rambled on tonight, as I say, off the top of my head as I always do and this is just to let you know that, always question whatís going on. Donít be overwhelmed by things. Donít be caught up in the fear mode thatís always pushed, because fear is a good seller for those that push it. Always be very, very careful who is trying to get into your head, and by whatever means you think youíre choosing that are going to get into your head, itís often not your own choice at all; youíre being fooled. Beware of those that say we, us, etc. becauseÖ Are you really part of the we or the us? Who is using you? Think about it. Be very, very careful. Because there is only one you and the mind has no firewalls. You have to guard everything that comes into your own mind, and think about it too.  No matter what youíre told, question it, intensely. Thatís what freedom is. You see you still have the freedom to do that, if you wish to do that; at the moment you can still do that. As I say, down the road I really donít think youíll have the ability, because theyíll nip you in the bud when they catch on that youíre actually thinking for yourself. And that can be a dangerous, dangerous thing in the world that theyíre shaping around you today.

 

Those at the top become very nasty, believe you me, when the fake society of peace and security that they often project is threatened, at all, from a source, even a great idea. Thatís what terrifies them, more than anything else.  All the other authorized areas, which they clamp down on, are often led by them in fact to make you think that you really need these organizations to keep you safe, that they actually create their own problems. They put them out there, and they get lots of patsies that are available, and the techniques are perfect for creating them today, perfect in fact. But thatís an old technique.

 

Now, Iíd like to say too, remember folks, that Iím not sitting here just dishing out information for nothing. I have to live too. I have to pay for all the websites I have, and I have to pay for all the other things you pay for along with the websites. People seem to think I live in some kind of happy mansion somewhere where I smoke a pipe and drink brandy or something with a dinner jacket on. Nothing is further from the truth. I live at a lower standard of living than many of you out there.  I really do. Because what I get goes into what I do, and itís not a lot of money at all. So Iíd really appreciate it, for the learning youíre getting, and lots of folk are getting a lot of teaching, and they write to me. But I really do need folk to help out. You can donate, remember, by either donating straight donations, by PayPal or cash or whatever. Youíll find it all at cuttingthroughthematrix.com as to how to do it.  Or you can buy the books I have out there where I go through different things and different techniques of control, that have always been used.  Thereís much more than just control in it, I show you how people think, I show you how you think.  And I put a way in there, too, of the writing that enables you to think as youíre actually reading through it. So thereís a lot in those particular books. So you can help me out too so I can tick along here. Because Iím not really even ticking along right now.

 

Now from Hamish and myself from Ontario, Canada, itís good night and may your God or your gods go with you.
