The few, among the many, in humanity have always called for the brotherhood and sisterhood of all and for a world of peace, cooperation, and goodwill towards each and everyone.

However, the world hardly hears or listens and habits continue on as if nothing has changed. The way of the world, the Great Machine of the World Economy, is churning, turning, grinding and eating up the planet at every moment, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year with no rest ever. Never!

The reality of this world has always been, basically, a world of the self-centered, selfish few, who present themselves as people just like you and me, i.e., kind, gentle, caring, concerned and helpful. However, the reality that has predominated over this world, over the many, and will continue to do so, is the opposite. 

Candidates, for office in high positions of power, have been, are and will be mostly mediocre people. Once again, there will be elections in many places and those selected “leaders” may be the ones that take us towards a collapse in the world economy or war or both, as always. We are at the absolute edge of the cliff looking over an deep, deep abysm which the world may fall into soon. Unless, things dramatically change, and, in my view, they won’t, we are looking at a gloomy future. Ultimately, war or economic collapse or both has been the answer in order to make money and improve the economy so as to “rebuild” the world. The answer that the elite of the elite, who want what they cannot have and who must take control by force, and will do so once again, will be am eventual, serious economic collapse and/or a great war in order to take humanity to the next stage. The world’s system on this planet cannot change and it will not change ultimately. Why would it? It’s working perfectly! Yes it is” But only for the very, very, very few.

The powerful elite are now working night and day to change the “game” again and, who knows exactly when, but, a new “game” will arise. It will begin to be played out on the world stage in the not so distant future. The “New” Economy is coming. It’s almost here!

Will it be for the good of all or for just the few?

Reason and logic is not the way of the elite of the elite who control this world. Force is always the answer and money always wins. ALWAYS!

Nothing changes in this world, except its external aspect.

The essence of this world never does.

This is something I repeat again and again in my blog because it is worth remembering.

Do not be fooled by a new game.

Remember, the game changes, meaning the external world, but the true world, the hidden essence of this world never does and never will. Unless, of course, the vast majority of billions and billions RISE UP!

If humanity is to survive now, at the most critical crossroad in the history of humanity until now, the sword [weapons of destruction and mass destruction] must be converted into plowshares [constructive ideas and actions].

Self-destruction seems to be the path that the world continues to tread and appears to be where the world is headed.

Delayed action, useless debate and lack of money, if you believe that, are the usual excuses in this world in the upper, upper stratosphere of wealth.  In actuality, their strategy of delay is part of their modus operandi.

The “leaders” of humanity want the world as it is and the new game will accomodate what they do not want to change. So then, what?

Societies and, especially, Governments must lead the way.

However, Society and Government never ever “lead” the way. They herd us toward the way. They are not about leading at all. It is about following commands. The commands of the hidden powerful elite of the elite is always through the mass media and government control.  Their way is not the way towards a planet where absolute good actions are done for the good of all. Just look at the world and its history. Do you think it will change now?

Of course not!

It’s time to grow up and AWAKEN!

The world only does good when it is for the benefit of the few.  The rest, well, we know and we see what the few continue to do as they’ve always done. 

The world never changes.

It won’t change unless the vast majority of the People, meaning us, the billiions of us, change.

One day, sooner or later, the People will need to RISE UP and I mean RISE UP to take control and create a system that benefits EVERYONE not just the few!

If not, the few will destroy the many or most of them.

In the elite of the elite world, there are just too many of us now on this planet and in the elite of the elite’s world of scarcity, We, the People, are taking up space, very valuable space.

In this totally connected world now, everyone is watching, waiting and expecting some huge and unexpected event to come. It’s only a matter of time now. We are all now in a waiting room anticipating the world’s next huge move, the world’s next huge event. Will it be for the good of all or what?

Beethoven, in his 9th and last symphony wrote a majestic work with an inspiring final chorus entitled ‘Ode to Joy’.

The Ode is to the New World, the New World we ALL can create. One that can work to the benefit of ALL, not just to the FEW.

Remember, the Americas are still called the “New World” but that is patently false. The so-called “New World” is just a continuation of the Old World, with the same patterns of existence that have been with us since time immemorial. The Old World never lost its power. Actually, it’s even much more powerful than evere before.

The world needs to not only change but to transform. Transformation cannot and will never be able to be imposed from without. The People, by some miracle, by some event or by some way can only be transformed because it will happen en masse within each individual. It will sweep over the world either slowly or very, very quickly because something will trigger it. That’s is how the world has always changed. Hopefully, it will not happen because of some extreme, negative and destructive event. Let’s only hope that the transformation will be within the near future if we are to survive.

 

An die Freude “Ode to Joy”

Freude, schöner Götterfunken,
Tochter aus Elysium,
Wir betreten feuertrunken,
Himmlische, dein Heiligtum!
Deine Zauber binden wieder
Was die Mode streng geteilt*;
Alle Menschen werden Brüder*
Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

Wem der große Wurf gelungen
Eines Freundes Freund zu sein;
Wer ein holdes Weib errungen
Mische seinen Jubel ein!
Ja, wer auch nur eine Seele
Sein nennt auf dem Erdenrund!
Und wer’s nie gekonnt, der stehle
Weinend sich aus diesem Bund!

Freude trinken alle Wesen
An den Brüsten der Natur;
Alle Guten, alle Bösen
Folgen ihrer Rosenspur.
Küsse gab sie uns und Reben,
Einen Freund, geprüft im Tod;
Wollust ward dem Wurm gegeben
und der Cherub steht vor Gott.

Froh, wie seine Sonnen fliegen
Durch des Himmels prächt’gen Plan
Laufet, Brüder, eure Bahn,
Freudig, wie ein Held zum siegen.

Seid umschlungen, Millionen!
Diesen Kuß der ganzen Welt!
Brüder, über’m Sternenzelt
Muß ein lieber Vater wohnen.
Ihr stürzt nieder, Millionen?
Ahnest du den Schöpfer, Welt?
Such’ ihn über’m Sternenzelt!
Über Sternen muß er wohnen.

Joy, beautiful spark of the gods,
Daughter from Elysium,
We enter, drunk with fire,
Heavenly One, thy sanctuary!
Your magic binds again
What convention strictly divides;
All people become brothers,
Where your gentle wing abides.

Who has succeeded in the great attempt,
To be a friend’s friend,
Whoever has won a lovely woman,
Add his to the jubilation!
Indeed, who calls even one soul
Theirs upon this world!
And whoever never managed, shall steal himself
Weeping away from this union!

All creatures drink of joy
At nature’s breast.
Just and unjust
Alike taste of her gift;
She gave us kisses and the fruit of the vine,
A tried friend to the end.
[Even] the worm has been granted sensuality,
And the cherub stands before God!

Gladly, as His heavenly bodies fly
On their courses through the heavens,
Thus, brothers, you should run your race,
Joyful, like a hero going to conquest.

You millions, I embrace you.
This kiss is for all the world!
Brothers, above the starry canopy
There must dwell a loving Father.
Do you fall in worship, you millions?
World, do you know your creator?
Seek him in the heavens
Above the stars must He dwell.

Noam Chomsky Wants You to Wake Up From the American Dream

 

Of course, Brazil will copy this same scenario for itself, again, as will other nations, too.

This world is really the Planet of the Apes. You don’t think so? Look closer!

The majority of nations copy what the “leading” nations do. This scenario will be no different. Appearances in this world especially, in the world of politics, are deceiving, but behind what we see and who we see in power, the animal mind, humanity’s lowest of low nature, is still at work. In this world, there are so very few true human beings because mostly, the human ape, the animal mind, is still in power and still in control of everything. The vast majority of the People, ordinary, everyday people, of this planet are asleep, under mind control, nescient or just plain unable to “see” the world as it really is. I don’t claim to see it as it really is either but I do know this, or, at least, I can agree with Noam Chomsky in his vision of what he sees about the concentration of wealth and power. The world is not what we think it is or are led to believe that it is. Believing in those in power is our first mistake. People at the level of power far above, not only government but, also, above corporations is what is truly frightening because they are, virtually, untouchable, either in feelings or in caring about humanity as a whole. If you believe they do feel or care then what can I say.

I will say it plainly as I have experienced and have come to know from many great minds like Noam Chomsky, Ralph Nader, Chris Hedges, Howard Zinn, so many other current and living thinkers and philosophers.

This world we were born into is only for the very, very, very, very few who consider themselves above all others because of their vast amounts of wealth which insulate them from the reality of what 98% of this world goes through and what it suffers in the struggle just to survive. This is the way the world has always been since time immemorial. You only have to look back to ancient Egypt, the super power at that time, and then look at all the powers of this planet up to now. Appearances, methods, thinking has all basically changed, of course, except for the one underlying reality that still and may always pervade this world. That is what is called currently as selfishness. The story of selfishness has, basically, always been the same thing, and this that the very few extract the majority of the wealth of this world off the backs of the many who actually do the hard menial and, sometimes, backbreaking tasks, if not, then the jobs that have such stressful workloads that many ages decades older beyond their years after being in the corporate world. What good does it do to work in the super stressful corporate world and then retire terribly ill and spend the rest of what life you may still have in doctor’s office and/or in a hospital with all the concomitant illnesses that go along with a life lived under constant and intense pressure. Those at the apex of power in this world are literally incapable of any feelings for anyone except for those who are similar to them, i.e., those with enormous amounts of wealth who live in a totally different world than the vast majority trying to make it in life from day to day. Our contemporary world has everything to make this a much, much better world but we are always told that a better world is just utopia, it’s non-existent, it cannot be done, it’s a dream, a fantasy. Maybe it is, however, I have my own personal doubts about that.

The world we see is the way of the world. It didn’t just happen. The world we see is the way it has always been, is now and will always be until a GREAT AWAKENING of the mass of people on this planet. Only then, maybe, will real change come if the People awaken and realize how they have been duped, how they have been put to sleep about the vast wealth of this planet and how it has been siphoned off, up to the very, very, very top of this world for only a very few, while the vast majority, literally billions, live from month to month, if they have anything, never knowing if next month there will be a source of income, especially, in this debilitated, shaky world economy now and at this most crucial point in history.

This awakening may never, ever happen because the powers of this world will not let it happen. It will take a virtual miracle if this planet is ever to change, where everyone cares about one another and never ever lets anyone fall by the wayside, not one, at all.

Utopia?

No, but a better world than this? There has to be!

But for now, fasten your seatbelt because the real show is about to begin, in the near future. The near future could be as far away as 10 years but, remember, 10 years is nothing when you really consider it.

While Mr. Trump, as head of the U.S. government, is drawing most of the attention to himself and saying and doing the things that he has now become famous for, in order to shock everyone in the world and to distract most everyone from real important stories, the real, hidden powers of this world, centralized through Washington, D.C., are now working throughout the world in the most incredibly stealthy ways ever known to humankind, with all the best technology that money can buy in this world, so that, behind the scenes, preparations are now underway in order to become ready for the real destructive change that is to come. We are only at the beginning of this “New World” which is just around the corner now. The world is going to be depopulated soon, in ways we will not know about until it is too late to do anything. The world, as we know it, will be destroyed, perhaps, in ways we cannot imagine yet. Many, many economies like Brazil, where I live, will be taken over by the puppets of this New World Order so that these superpowers can extract even more wealth. Also, other countries in the region with tremendous wealth will begin the same process of funneling more wealth to the very top of the pyramid on this planet so that these hidden powers can begin to finance their Machiavellian schemes to prepare the planet where the mass of humanity, who are not going to be needed anymore, because of technology and A.I., will be somehow swept away, like so much trash, into the trash heaps of this world in order for these elite to create their own world, a new world where the population will have been vastly reduced over years or decades. The new planet will then be a planet of only the “elite”, the “select”, the “few” in control of a technological world of “new” types of slaves to serve the new masters and robots to do the heavy work, all controlled from a central source with other sources of control spread throughout the world as backups, just in case of sabotage so the system cannot fail or be destroyed totally.

I, sincerely, hope this is not the case, of what many have foreseen as a possibility. Unless something as big, as what many foresee coming, counterattacks this coming horrible possibility, when it begins, what may happen, will happen, unless the mass of the People of the world rise up and counterattack this so-called New World Order when the change begins to be finalized. This possible future of evil, so great that we cannot even imagine it, will happen unless there are opposing forces to stop it.

This coming possibility will be a totally new way of creating a so-called “better world” where most of us are not needed anymore. Hopefully, we will all have eyes to see this absurd reality, if and when it does come. We must all be vigilant and watchful because what is coming will be something never before seen. The old ways of changing the world have to be done now in a new way. I think this is why most feel that this is the quiet before the “storm”.

Let’s hope it is not!

 

Like Al Jolson used to say: “You ain’t heard nothing yet!”

 

The cheerful, happy song below, You Ain’t Heard Nothin’ Yet, came out just prior to the Twenties, which later were to be known as a super, great economic boom in U.S. history. Little did most anyone know that ten years later, on October 29th,1929, the U.S. would suffer one of the greatest economic crashes on Wall Street in history. People severely affected by the crash lost everything and some even killed themselves.

At that time, credit cards didn’t exist like they do now. Many credit cards are extremely easy to get, so many people have multiple credit cards and survive that way. It is a hidden way to live better and maintain the illusion of the American Dream by living on borrowed money through credit cards and paying only the minimum payment necessary, in order to survive.

 

You Ain’t Heard Nothin’ Yet

Oh boy, you oughta meet her
Oh boy, nobody sweeter

I mean that girlie o’mine,
I’ll say, she’s simply divine!

Oh boy, I wanna tell ya’
My heart is gone!

Maybe this’ll give you some idea
How we carry on

Say, when I call, she takes my hand

But you ain’t heard nothing yet!

And, and in the hall, we act as grand

But you ain’t heard nothing yet!

When we talk about the weather
Then we cuddle close together.

That’s great
But wait

You ain’t heard nothing yet!

She’s got the charms,
Such curvy arms

But you ain’t heard nothing yet!

And I can’t wait
Until that date
When I’m married to my pet.

We’ll have such cute things runnin’ round
Our bungalow you bet!

We’ll first commence
With a picket fence

But you ain’t heard nothing yet!

She’s all I ever wanted
My dreams are always haunted

By this sweet, sweetie of mine!
I’ll say she’s simply divine!

She’s just the sort o’ girlie
You all adore

So I’m gonna tweek my cheek again
Just to make it sore!

Hey listen!

When I call, she takes my hand

But you ain’t heard nothing yet!

In her heart, we are good friends

But you, but you ain’t heard nothing yet!

When we talk about the weather
Then we cuddle close together

That’s great
But wait

Oh, you ain’t heard nothing yet!

Oh, she’s got charms
Such curvy arms

Ah-ha-ha-ha, but you ain’t heard nothing yet!

And-and-and when those arms are round my neck,
Believe me, I am set!

And when the lights are turned down low
I hug and kiss my pet

Now she gets sore
If I told you more

But you ain’t heard nothing yet!

Brother, Can You A Spare A Dime

This song was one of the principle songs that defined what the Depression of the 1930s was like for most working people who, after the Roaring Twenties (1920-1929), with one of the greatest economic booms in American history, were mostly left to beg in the streets. Many Americans, like my stepfather, were left affected by this devastating event for the rest of their lives. My stepfather literally drank and smoked himself to death. He probably, also, had many other problems that I didn’t know about but, for sure, the Depression and what he and his family went through had its effect, not only on him, but on many, many people in the U.S. from that time. Those times were never forgotten by the people who lived through it.

Now in the 2010s, after the Great Recession of 2008, as it is called sometimes, the economy has not really recovered, at all, for about almost twenty years now. For most people in America and in the world the effects of the Great Recession are still being felt. Despite what Wall Street flaunts as a “great market”, especially now with Mr. Trump in power, the mass of people are living from month to month. Since the beginning of this new century, the 21st century, I think it needs, finally, to be call what it truly is. We live in The Great Age of Lies and Deceit. That certainly would be the best way to describe, not only the U.S., but probably much of this wonderful world we live in.  Just know that these economic disasters and booms are all created by so-called superior, intelligent people at the very pinnacle of wealth and their so-called power, both economic and influential, in order to take advantage in both types of economies. These superior, intelligent people always come out on top. Always! The rest be damned to suffer what these superior people have created for their own benefit and profit.

Wake up world!

Don’t believe me, do your own research and confirm it for yourself. The world is a game and it is rigged for the benefit of only a very, very, very few. It is what has always been forever among what we call “human beings”.

They used to tell me I was building a dream
And so I followed the mob
When there was earth to plow or guns to bear
I was always there right on the job
They used to tell me I was building a dream
With peace and glory ahead
Why should I be standing in line
Just waiting for bread?
Once I built a railroad, made it run
Made it race against time
Once I built a railroad, now it’s done
Brother, can you spare a dime?
Once I built a tower to the sun
Brick, mortar and lime
Once I built a tower, now it’s done
Brother, can you spare a dime?
Once in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell
Full of that Yankee doodly de dum
Half a million boots went marchin’ through hell
And I was a kid with a drum
Say, don’t you remember, they called me Al
It was Al, Al, all the time
Say don’t you remember, I’m your pal
Brother, can you spare a dime?
Once I built a railroad, I made it run
And I made it race against time
Once I built a railroad, now it’s done
Say brother, ain’t got a dime about ya’, have ya’?
And once I built a tower, yes, a tower to the sun
Of brick, mortar and lime
Yes, I’m the fella who built the tower, now it’s done
Hey, buddy, ain’t got a dime about ya’, have ya’?
Once in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell
Full of that Yankee doodly de dum
Half a million boots went marchin’ through hell
And I was a kid with a drum
Say, don’t you remember, don’t you remember!
They called me Al
It was Al, Al, all the time
Don’t you remember, I’m your pal
Brother, can ya’ spare a dime?
