carousel freedom

Carnival


"None are more hopelessly enslaved than
those who falsely believe they are free."

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe


So ya

Thought ya

Might like to go to the show.

To feel the warm thrill of confusion

That space cadet glow.

Tell me is something eluding you, sunshine?

Is this not what you expected to see?

If you wanna find out what's behind these cold eyes

You'll just have to claw your way through this disguise.


Momma loves her baby

And daddy loves you too.

And the sea may look warm to you babe

And the sky may look blue

But ooooh Baby

Ooooh baby blue

Oooooh babe.


If you should go skating

On the thin ice of modern life

Dragging behind you the silent reproach

Of a million tear-stained eyes

Don't be surprised when a crack in the ice

Appears under your feet.

You slip out of your depth and out of your mind

With your fear flowing out behind you

As you claw the thin ice.


When we grew up and went to school

There were certain teachers who would

Hurt the children in any way they could

By pouring their derision

Upon anything we did

And exposing every weakness

However carefully hidden by the kids

But in the village, it was well known

When they got home at night, their fat and

Psychopathic wives would thrash them

Within inches of their lives.


Daddy's flown across the ocean

Leaving just a memory

Snapshot in the family album

Daddy what else did you leave for me?

Daddy, what'd'ja leave behind for me?!?

All in all it was just a brick in the wall.

All in all it was all just bricks in the wall.


We don't need no education

We dont need no thought control

No dark sarcasm in the classroom

Teachers leave them kids alone

Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!

All in all it's just another brick in the wall.

All in all you're just another brick in the wall.


I don't need no arms around me

And I dont need no drugs to calm me.

I have seen the writing on the wall.

Don't think I need anything at all.

No! Don't think I'll need anything at all.

All in all it was all just bricks in the wall.

All in all you were all just bricks in the wall.


Mother do you think they'll drop the bomb?

Mother do you think they'll like this song?

Mother do you think they'll try to break my balls?

Mother should I build the wall?

Mother should I run for president?

Mother should I trust the government?

Mother will they put me in the firing line?

Mother am I really dying?


Hush now baby, baby, dont you cry.

Mother's gonna make all your nightmares come true.

Mother's gonna put all her fears into you.

Mother's gonna keep you right here under her wing.

She wont let you fly, but she might let you sing.

Mama will keep baby cozy and warm.

Ooooh baby ooooh baby oooooh baby,

Of course mama'll help to build the wall.


Mother do you think she's good enough -- to me?

Mother do you think she's dangerous -- to me?

Mother will she tear your little boy apart?

Mother will she break my heart?


Hush now baby, baby dont you cry.

Mama's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you.

Mama wont let anyone dirty get through.

Mama's gonna wait up until you get in.

Mama will always find out where you've been.

Mama's gonna keep baby healthy and clean.

Ooooh baby oooh baby oooh baby,

You'll always be baby to me.


Mother, did it need to be so high?

In the Flesh? (Roger Waters Live)




How The Magic Works

It is human nature to believe your eyes,
giving images a visceral power words can not match



Staging is not a new idea as every ruler will attest.

There are many ways to deceive the eye and social engineers use them.

Images are often the only thing an individual will subconsciously recall.

A healthy dose of skepticism is needed in judging the authenticity of images.

Deceptive images that appear truthful poison our sense of reality creating a conceptually false reality and re-writing history.

Images are easily manipulated with computer-generated digital imaging.

This makes it extremely easy to invent scenes for the staging of propaganda.





1996 US military publishes Shock and Awe: Achieving Rapid Dominance.

This doctrine forms the basis of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

The authors state that the invading force should "seize control of the environment and paralyze or so overload an adversary's perceptions and understanding of events so that the enemy would be incapable of résistance."

The signature image of the fall of Baghdad, the toppling of a statue of Saddam surrounded by a large, jostling crowd celebrating was staged.

The crowd was not the "massive demonstration" that was widely reported, a depiction buttressed by the dense congestion in the close-up images.

A Reuters long-distance shot of the entire square where the statue was downed shows the crowd was small, no more than about 200 people.

"Nonsense placed before the eyes has a magical effect
as it fetters the senses the mind remains a vassal."

Goethe in a letter to Schiller ~ 1797

"We are a world divorced from the superstitions of the past, new myths are generated by those wielding media as a wand, one as powerful as the holly wood wands of ancient ceremonial magicians were rumored to have been.

Hollywood is the sacred site of today's elite magician. " - Edward Wilson


Entertainment brings forth the power of emotional sensation allowing a vehicle for escape or release from the rational dissociated mind.

Entertainment relies heavily on instant emotional gratification.

Entertainment is an expression of the will to consume and possess.

Entertainment and consumption are two sides of the same biological coin.

Consumption, aside from the purchase of necessities, allows anyone with money to buy into their own fantasy just like the fantasies on Fantasy Island.

Both are simply a search for the mindless pleasure of emancipation from the onerous halls of reason and the other bonds of self-restraint or self-control.

Entertainment transports us through time and space enabling us to escape our personal reality - if only for a moment before the moment is gone.

"The deliberate application of the techniques of theater to politics, religion, education, literature, commerce, warfare, crime, has converted everything into branches of show business - the overriding objective is to mesmerize.

Andy Warhol ushered in a new age for art causing the custodians of culture to roll over in their graves - art as entertainment.

Andy Warhol realized in entertainment monoculture people themselves became pop cultural artifacts and celebrities were human soup cans.

The most important art movement became the art of the creation of the celebrity, the celebrity business plan." - Neil Gabler


Entertainment is "escapist".

To be entertained is to be dissociated.

Pseudo experience never satisfies.

In the end it intensifies the hunger ...
saddled with a media device


"The "culture" of television has replaced community." - Donald O. Mayer


"I was not surprised to hear that teenagers and young adults are not really entertained by the media devices to which they have become attached.

The reason is that entertainment is like dessert - a little goes a long way.

People derive genuine satisfaction by actually doing things such as making their own music, dancing, creating art, volunteering, growing flowers, knitting sweaters, repairing old bicycles, learning a new language.

The fact that youngsters waste so much time trying to find virtual satisfaction shows that we need to work harder to make real satisfaction more accessible to them." - Ruth Anne Hammond

Before CIA involvement art was sublime.

Art redirected thought from the sensual to the intellectual, from the temporal to the eternal, from the corporeal to the spiritual.

Art was not only concerned with aesthetics but also morality.

Art, operating on the right brain, is beyond the reach of intellect.

When the senses and emotions are stimulated it is sensational.

Entertainment induced neural reactions in much the same way as drugs.

Artists create artwork assuming different spectators will see different things.

Entertainers captivate by deploying familiar words, images, symbols, techniques or stories in an attempt to garner a collective response.

Entertainment is about the power to replace the sublime with fantasy.

Entertainment requires sensation triumph over reason to suspend disbelief.

Electrification and related technologies built the entertainment industry.

Printing advances allowed for illustration and eventually photographic reproduction on billboards and in books, newspapers and magazines.

Magazines aimed to entertainment and condition the masses.

They achieved this by the liberal and extravagance use of photographs of individuals deemed socially important accompanied by improvised articles.

Labor conditions changed as wages rose and hours declined.

Ordinary citizens began to have more money and leisure time.

A new attitude emerged among laborers accompaning these changes - an emotional reaction against the numbing conditions of the machine age.

At the end of the work day, workers left their factories wanting to have a good time, forget work and forget their personal reality.

Entertainment satisfies the desire to forget the daily grind.

Cicero was trained by Roscius the comedian and Aesop the tragedian.

Napoleon Bonaparte took instruction from the actor Talma in the art of small talk and carefully calculated everything from his rages to his poses.

In antebellum America political orators Daniel Webster, John Calhoun and Henry Clay studied theatrical declamation, prompting theater managers to complain that their presentations could not compete with those of politicians.

The theatrical tradition leaped into aritocratic circles when Theodore Roosevelt played the part of a larger-than-life version of himself.

The concept of "the spectacle" interrelates and explains a wide range of seemingly unconnected phenomena. The apparent diversities and contrasts of these phenomena stem from the social organization of appearances, whose essential nature must itself be recognized. Considered in its own terms, the spectacle is an affirmation of appearances and an identification of all human social life with appearances. But a critique that grasps the spectacle's essential character reveals it to be a visible negation of life - a negation that has taken on a visible form. - Guy Debord

"The average millionaire is only the

average dishwasher dressed in a new suit."

George Orwell



Festivals in ancient Rome were an important part of Roman religious life during both the Republican and Imperial eras, and one of the primary features of the Roman calendar.

Feriae ("holidays" in the sense of "holy days"; singular also feriae or dies ferialis) were either public (publicae) or private (privatae).

State holidays were celebrated by the Roman people and received public funding.

Games (ludi), such as the Ludi Apollinares, were not technically feriae, but the days on which they were celebrated were dies festi, holidays in the modern sense of days off work.

Although feriae were paid for by the state, ludi were often funded by wealthy individuals.

Marcus Terentius Varro defined feriae as "days instituted for the sake of the gods."

Religious rites were performed on the feriae, and public business was suspended.

This plagued commerce as there was many festivals: 13 in January, 16 in February, 17 in March, 16 in April, 14 in May, 19 in June, 16 in July, 18 in August, 7 in September(grain harvest), 13 in October, 8 in November, 19 in December - for a total of 176 festival days a year.

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 mass 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.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
