"The power of the killing machine rests in
the broad based popular support it receives through
the investment system and the financial
markets." - Catherine Austin
"The hegemonic system is bound to strive after the annexation
of all independent states.
The Reich of the Nazis and the commonwealth
of the Marxians are planned as societies of undisturbed peace.
They are to be forged by pacification - the violent subjection of all
those not ready to yield without résistance." - Ludwig von
"Suspension of international politics through hegemony has been
the fundamental aim of US foreign policy since the 1940s.
Since the end
of the Cold War, the US has
sought to preserve its hegemony by possessing a margin of military superiority
so vast that it can keep any would-be great power pliant and protected." -
Christopher Layne and Benjamin Schwarz
"The historical record shows that
in the real world, hegemony never has been a winning grand strategy.
The reason is simple: The primary aim of states in international
politics is to survive and maintain their sovereignty.
When one state
becomes too powerful - becomes a hegemon - the imbalance of power in its favor
is a menace to the security of all other states.
So throughout modern
international political history, the rise of a would-be hegemon always has
triggered the formation of counter-hegemonic alliances by other states." -
"The rot of imperialism, which is always
incompatible with democracy, has seen the military and arms manufacturers
monopolize $1 trillion a year in defense-related spending in the US even as the
nation faces economic collapse." - Christopher Hedges 02/10/10
"A society becomes totalitarian
when its structure becomes flagrantly artificial, that is
when its ruling class
has lost its function but succeeds in clinging to power by force or fraud." -
"Neoconservatism, whatever its complex
roots, has become indelibly associated with concepts like
change, unilateralism and American hegemony." - Francis
"Since 1945 neo-cons have insisted
on acquiring and maintaining military supremacy. The US continues to expand its
power and military reach. " -
"Two centuries ago, a former
European colony decided to catch up with Europe. It succeeded so well that the
USA became a monster, in which the taints, the sickness and the inhumanity of
Europe have grown to appalling dimensions." - Frantz Fanon
"Transnational elite is indeed running
the old world order, and they will for a while longer. Most empires are
destined to implode. The overreach of the American empire (more than 700
military installations around the world in 120 nations), coupled with a defense
budget of $1 trillion annually (all related "defense" expenditures) cannot be
long sustained." - Mitch Paradise
"I am absolutely convinced, you
never have to give
up any freedom in order to be secure." Ron Paul
"In the end, more than freedom,
they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -
security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give
to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from
responsibility then Athens
ceased to be free and was never free again." - Edward Gibbon

This 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
forged 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 the Lumière Infinie - 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 spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human
spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie 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
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 economic 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
coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a
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.
