The biggest obstacle in removing
ignorance is the arrogance

"For the great majority of men are satisfied with appearances, as though they were realities, and are often more influenced by how things appear than by how things truly are." - Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli

"ig·nor·ar·ro·gance: [ ig-ner-ar-uh-guhns] – noun –

offensive display of self-importance based on lack of knowledge

• Arrogance is being 10% right and 100% certain.

Ignorarrogance is being 98% oblivious and 100% certain.

Gnosis is being 100% certain 98% are oblivious!

"Blame-all and praise-all, are two blockheads."

Benjamin Franklin

"The evil that is in the world always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence, if they lack understanding.

On the whole men are more good than bad; that, however, isn't the point.

The most incorrigible vice being that of an ignorance which fancies it knows everything and therefore claims for itself the right to kill.

There can be no true goodness, nor true compassion, without the utmost clear-sightedness.

There always comes a time in history when the person who dares to say that 2 + 2 = 4 is punished by death.

And the issue is not what reward or what punishment will be the outcome of that reasoning.

The issue is simply whether or not 2 + 2 = 4." - Albert Camus

The Arrogance of Ignorance

The man who studies the spread of ignorance

"I was exploring how powerful industries could promote ignorance to sell their wares.

Ignorance is power … and agnotology is about the deliberate creation of ignorance.

In looking into agnotology, I discovered the secret world of classified science, and thought historians should be giving this attention." - Robert Proctor

"A free market has to and does coordinate current and future production against future unknown demands, supplies, and shocks; and it has to and does find ways to alleviate the negative effects of shocks.

People generally accomplish this by planning, forecasting, hedging, insuring, and diversifying.

There are countless ways, each tailored to particular circumstances.

When a man has a backup trade, he is hedging against being laid off in his main occupation.

When a family saves, it is hedging against loss of income.

When family members help one another in hard times, they are insuring each other.

The federal government and the federal reserve are institutions that generate economic shocks, after which they claim that they have the means, and only they have the means, to ameliorate their effects.

These two institutions have unique powers that affect the entire economy, they generate large and pervasive shocks.

In the modern booms that lead to recessions in economic activity, these institutions act in ways which cause private economic actors to maintain rates of consumption and investment and types of investment (as in housing and mortgages) that are too high and too dependent on growing debt.

They induce people to depart from their unhampered or free market needs.

This is a shock to the economy.

To get people on a continuing basis to consume and invest at a higher rate, the central bank has continually to maintain a rate of growth of money that is higher than what ordinary people demand.

This shock raises and distorts the price level, raises and distorts productive activity, and raises and distorts asset prices.

It lowers risk premiums and induces speculation by distorting trade patterns, capital flows, balances of payments, and exchange rates.

The federal government and the federal reserve push economic decisions further and further away from what people would decide if the credit growth had not been manipulated by the central bank." - Michael S. Rozeff

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.
