clash, between the authoritarian and the liberal democratic, that I believe to
be the major ideologcal conflict of my time-not some concocted, prejudiced
notion of an East-West divide, or of a resurrected crusade against Christendom
or Islam. Authoritarian states are typically not governments of laws, but
governments of leaders, who demand loyalty from their subjects and are hostile
Liberal-democratic states, by contrast, make no or few such
demands, but depend almost solely on each citizen voluntarily assuming the
responsibility of protecting the freedoms of everyone else around them,
regardless of their race, ethnicity creed, ability, sexuality, or gender.
Any collective guarantee, predicated not on blood but on assent, will
wind up favoring egalitarianism - and though democracy has often fallen far
short of its ideal, I still believe it to be the one form of governance that
nost fully enables people of different backgrounds to live together, equal
before the law.
This equality consists not only of rights but also of
In fact, many of the rights most cherished by citizens of
democraies aren't even provided for in law except by implication. They exist in
that open-ended empty space created through the restriction of government
For example, Americans only have a 'right" to free speech
because the government is forbidden from making any law restricting that
freedom, and a "right" to a free press because the government is forbidden from
making any law to abridge it.
They only have a"right" to worship freely
because the government is forbidden from making any law respecting an
establishment of religion, and a "right" to peaceably assemble and protest
because the government is forbidden from making any law that says they can't."

"The London gold fix-all of the major pricing
mechanisms for calculating government economic policy as well as commercial
decisions - has been discredited because of manipulation by self-interested
In the case of the gold fix, designed to not only fix a price
for settling contracts between members of the London bullion market but to
provide a recognized rate to benchmark pricing for the majority of gold
products and derivatives throughout the world, an employee of Barclays (took
fix from N. M. Rothschild & Sons) manipulated the process to prevent a
derivative previously sold to a client from leading to a payout." - Patricia

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
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
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 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 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 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.
