website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its
author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside
personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from
reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate
cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on
the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate
religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious
ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The
Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason
which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no
church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to
develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit
of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of
the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author.
Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is
considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way condones violence. To
the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already
occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the
human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world
condemning system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military
entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the
elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems.
Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point
of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined precipitously
over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and
more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general
through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been
preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological
operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the
destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
