"Ideas shape the course of history. The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as escaping from old ones."

John Maynard Keynes
Director, British Eugenics Society 1937-1944

In "General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money" John Maynard Keynes begins by observing that before we can construct relevant theories for the present, we have to unlearn the useless theories of the past.

Shedding old theories is more difficult than building new ones.

John Maynard Keynes concluded with the observation "practical men" who chart national policies are more often than not the slaves of useless theories.

The political elite responsible for the current global disaster are disaster capital purveyors of antiCulture who intend to replace the gods of the past with the gods of the future within a generation.

Keynesian economics

"Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men
will do the wickedest of things for the greatest good of everyone."

John Maynard Keynes

Language evolves over time.

The word symbol liberal was originally defined as of, pertaining to, or befitting a freeman, free by birth.

Liberal acts became those actions appropriate for an adult person of free birth - a lady or a gentleman - an action inappropriate for a serf, slave, peasant, landless craftsmen (tailors, cobblers, carpenters, blacksmiths).

Over time a connotation developed with use of the word liberal.

An individual branded liberal was liberated from moral constraint, acted licentious, lacked moral restraint or exercised the freedom to live excessively.

When liberal was first used to describe a form of government a liberal government was defined as a representational form of government, democratic or republican, as opposed to monarchies.

In a monarchical system laws are designed to appease the landed aristocracy whereas in a representative form of government laws are designed by the people with the peoples overall welfare in mind.

Today those who define themselves as liberal:

Hahn's Masterpiece of Macroeconomics

A liberal individual may show a willingness to make "liberal" donations.

A liberal interpretation of a rule or law is not strict or rigorous while a liberal interpretation of the Bible is an interpretation that is not literal.

A liberal education is defined as an education based on the traditional arts and sciences that disciplines and conditions the mind through recognition.

Today a liberal education connotes liberation from moral constraint.

Opponents of liberalism have attempted to revive this obsolete definition as morally unrestrained or licentious opponents of established moral systems.

Usage: Liberal, Generous.

Liberal is freeborn, and generous is highborn.

The former is opposed to the ordinary feelings of a servile state, and implies largeness of spirit in the vein of giving, judging, acting as the Hero.

A nobleness of soul, in the past appropriate to those of high rank, - a spirit that goes out of self, and finds enjoyment in consulting constituents.

Generosity is measured by the extent of the sacrifices it makes.

"c. 1375; from old French, liberal "befitting free men, noble, generous;" from Latin, liberalis "noble, generous;" literally, "pertaining to a free man;" from liber "free;" from Proto-Indo-European base *leudheros; (Greek, eleutheros "free"), probably originally "belonging to the people" (though the precise semantic development is obscure), from *leudho- "people" (evolutions: Old Church Slavonic, ljudu; Lithuanian, liaudis; Old English, leod; German, Leute "nation, people").

Earliest reference in English is to the liberal arts (Latin, artes liberales), directed to a broader understanding, not immediate practical purpose.

Sense of "free in bestowing" is from 1387.

With a meaning "free from restraint in speech or action" (1490) liberal was used in the 16th century through the 17 century as a term of reproach.

"Free from prejudice, tolerant," emerged in 1776-88.

"Purely in reference to political opinion, "tending in favor of freedom and democracy" it dates from 1801, from the French libéral, originally applied in English by its opponents (often in French form and with suggestions of foreign lawlessness) to the party favorable to individual political freedoms.

But also (especially in American politics) tending to mean "favorable to government action to effect social change," which seems at times to draw more from the religious sense of "free from prejudicial favor of traditional opinions and established institutions" (and thus open to new ideas and plans of reform), which dates from 1823." - Douglas Harper

unique library index

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 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 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.
