"It was the task of industrial society to destroy
reciprocity. All that
"community" implies - self-sufficiency, mutual aid, morality in the
marketplace, stubborn tradition, regulation by custom, organic knowledge
instead of mechanistic science - had to be steadily and systematically
disrupted and displaced. All of the practices that kept the individual from
being a consumer had to
be done away with so that the cogs and wheels of an unfettered machine called
"the economy" could operate without interference,
influenced merely by invisible
hands." - Kirkpatrick Sale
"This call for a world-wide fellowship that lifts
neighborly concern beyond one's tribe, race, class and nation is in reality
a call for an all-embracing and
unconditional compassion for all men. This oft misunderstood and
misinterpreted concept has now become
an absolute necessity
for the survival of man. Now let us begin. Now let us rededicate ourselves
to the long and bitter - but beautiful - struggle for
a new reality. This is the calling of the
sons of God, and our brothers wait
eagerly for our response. " - Martin
Luther King Jr.

As potential beneficiaries inflate their reputations the

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."

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 cooperation. Cooperation does not
occur at the point of a gun.
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
