Who is Randy ‘Duke’ Cunningham?
He is the Vietnam War’s top scoring ace for the Navy. In fact, he shot down North Vietnam’s top scoring ace in a duel to the death.
But today, America’s top scoring ace, Top Gun instructor, California Congressman, Christian conservative and overall hero, sits rotting in a Federal prison.
I am sure America wants to know how Vietnam's top ace and redoubtable Congressman wound up in this hell hole.
Obviously he must have done something evil.
Let's look at the record, shall we?
1) He sold his house at an inflated price
2) Borrowed a yacht from a friend
3) Received as gifts (brace yourselves): a used Rolls Royce, some antique furniture and a rug and a contribution for his daughters’ birthday party.
For this he got 8 years (count them) EIGHT YEARS in prison, and, of course, the ruination of his entire military and political career.
Selling a house at an inflated price?
Wasn’t the entire American real estate market doing that?
How about selling crap derivatives until you collapse the entire economy?
How about charging the government unreal prices for feeding and housing our troops badly on their way to die in some forgotten place?
How about receiving $1trillion dollars of taxpayer money as a gift?
I don’t see too many Federal prison sentences being handed out for those crimes.
Oh well, some crimes carry more weight than others, I suppose.
But, oh, there are other crimes Cunningham was guilty of as well.
He didn’t like homos, and he specifically didn’t like homosexual Congressmen like Barney Frank, in fact, he made fun of them.
Tsk, tsk, Mr Cunningham.
Oh, and there's one other thing he didn’t like - drugs.
He was at the forefront of actually trying to enact ‘effective legislation’ to cut down the illegal drug trade at the knees.
You know, stop going after the street-corner punks and start going after the frozen food containers in our major ports.
And this, I suspect, was the real crime of Randy 'Duke' Cunningham.
Ace Cunningham made some pretty powerful people at the top pretty angry.
Because they not only framed him (all the gifts and favors came from one man - who then turned Cunningham in), but even after they put him in the pokey, the Internet became awash with anti-Cunningham propaganda of the worse sort.
There suddenly appeared entire websites dedicated to making Randy ‘Duke’ Cunningham look like scum.
Not criminal scum mind you(not enough evidence for that), but simple run-of-the-mill jerk scum – you know: coward, jerk, bigot, racist, chauvinist, religious fanatic, pervert, you know, all the adjectives you normally call an American war hero.
Check out one of those sites here:
Yeah, and I am just wondering, what sort of individuals just get up one morning and decide to create entire websites dedicated to debasing Veteran Congressman and war hero Randy C. Cunningham.
Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
Makes me wonder who paid for the free mud-bath.
Articles in Wikipedia (now removed) accused him of being found in a closet crying after provoking another congressman into shoving him.
Ooh yeah, totally believable.
But it didn’t stop there.
Then the establishment media whores pitched in.
The Washington Post published an editorial calling his actions “the most brazen conspiracy in modern congressional history.”
Talk about hyperbole.
(I guess the Federal Reserve Act was a gentleman’s agreement)
Finally, fellow 'veteran' and ‘pilot’ George W. Bush pitched in by calling Cunningham’s actions outrageous and stating that he should “pay a serious price” for his crimes.
(I wonder what ‘crimes’ our President was referring to - the borrowed yacht, the sold house, the dusty furniture or the rug?)
But whatever the case, the full force of America’s Byzantine system of justice was turned on poor old Duke.
US District Judge Larry A. Burns sentenced him to the 8 years of wastage in a Federal Prison.
Not only that, but this same judicial-thug denied Cunningham the right to see his dying mother one last time before going to prison.
(As a reward for railroading Cunningham, Judge Burns was assigned to direct the cover-up for Rep. Gabriel Giffords' shooting...see here: Giffords Cover-Up )
But wait, there is a bright side.
Mitchell Wade, the man who supposedly bribed and corrupted a Congressman Cunningham with all these illegal gifts - got only 2 years in prison (yes he's already out).
But perhaps Mitchell Wade does deserve such a short sentence because he is the one who baited, entrapped, betrayed and then turned in Randy Cunningham.
On the other hand...
...the torture hasn’t stopped for poor old Duke.
Besides the special inconvenience and harassment he reveives at the hands of his paid-for jailers, Randy gets one more special gift every year.
A visit from the journalist who helped destroy his character.
This kind-hearted individual asks Cunningham if he know acknowledges what a poop he is, and if he feels sorry for all the crimes he’s committed. Sometimes he asks how the penal system is treating him.
Randy once responded to this 'journalist' (perhaps more through him than to him) that he (Cunningham) “was a a human being” and “when would they stop?”
No Randy, it doesn't stop.
Now the IRS is confiscating all of what's left of Randy Cunningham's assets while he rots in jail, which will leave him dirt-poor by the time he leaves the slammer.
Back-taxes for all the 'bribes' he accepted.
Not that he has possession of any of those bribes because they were all confiscated and he was forced to pay them all back.
The IRS (especially when mounting payback) has never let logic interfere with illegal confiscations and license.
Some crimes are just unforgivable...
...like when you try to stop the flow of ‘spice’ in a country whose own intelligence agencies run the drug trade...and whose last three Presidents have been certified coke-heads.
As for me…show me how a country treats its war heroes...
...and I'll show you how it treats its citizens.
Randy ‘Duke’ Cunningham is supposed to be released from prison in 2013.

There has been a lot of talk about secession lately.
It used to be that when the little people said stuff like that the establishment put them on FBI black lists and watched them for the rest of their lives.
Now it’s the rich people doing it, so it’s acceptable and even fashionable.
Fact is the states have been the Federal Government’s whores for more than half a decade.
They have been paid for their compliance with Federal mandates with abundant Federal money, which they have been more than happy to stuff down their bras.
Now the money is running out, and there is trouble at the stud-ranch.
In effect, the Federal government has been bribing the states for decades to go along with its programs and policies, without ever actually making them part of the Federal government or gaining any official authority to dictate. The states have been going along because their coffers have been constantly filled at Federal expense.
You don’t really think state money built that luxurious high school your kid goes to, do you? Nor do you really think your local police department bought all those fancy toys with state money, right?
The problem this has been some bad obedience training and negative conditioning. Simply put, the states have been conditioned to follow the money, not their conscience. They have become accustomed to operating at the level they are at through Federal subsidies.
Once that Federal money dries up (which it will soon), all those fancy high schools, those glitzy police departments, those decadent libraries will cease to function.
What will the states do?
What have they been conditioned to do?
Answer: they have been conditioned to stick their hand and cry for money and even compete against other states for free money emanating from the Federal money tree. In fact, many still have a blind faith that a Federal economic bailout will rescue them just in the nick of time (even though they themselves are bankrupt).
Once the Federal government tells the states “there is no more money,” the likely reaction of the states will be…absolute and total shock.
This will be followed by desperate brainstorming on how to fix their crumbling Federally-dependent infrastructure, followed by…the need to seek more money… elsewhere.
When the money runs out, states will begin to think it their right to distance themselves, from a Federal government that is no longer the sugar daddy that provides for their needs, and in so not doing, has become completely ‘useless.’ They will proceed to individually seek out the favors of nations that have plenty of money to spend, so they can keep living at the level they have been at under the Federal trough.
Depending on how weak the Federal government is, and how whored out the states have become, this could lead to actual or virtual secession by some states due to economic factors.
Think about it. Venezuela has lots of free oil it is ready to give out to its friends, so does Iran. China doesn’t know what to do with all the dollars it’s sitting on. But, oh bother, the states can’t get any of it, because the Federal government has problems with those countries.
Why not just tell the Federal government to get lost, and make a bid for all those goodies?
See, that opens up a whole new box of cornucopia for the beggar states!
Well, who has the money nowadays? Let’s see, China is rather well off in the money department. So are the Gulf States. And don’t forget Russia. Although Russia is supposedly down on the account books, she still has an over-abundance of all types of natural resources she doesn’t know quite what to do with. Trade it in exchange for influence maybe?
The new ‘More Independent States of America’ will soon be offering bids and opening new relationships with all these countries, no matter what the Federal Government says.
In fact, secession is already being offered as a way to revitalize the states economies.
“What?” You say?
Indeed. Just get rid of all those Federal regulations, all those Federal taxes, and all those Federal economic limitations, and tomorrow you could be making millions off Cuban cigars, or restarting your economy based on selling legal marihuana (to hell with the ‘war on drugs’), or revving up your industries on free Iranian and Venezuelan gas.
My point is all of the above is a pipe dream, dreamed up by political entities (the states), who have become used to getting a hand out from their sugar daddy (the Federal Government), and have whored out their principles in the process, and indeed, have become like dependent whores. Well, guess what, the concept of nationhood is itself a principle. A principle that is going out the window based on economic convenience.
But let’s be honest here. Do you want people like the ones that populate your local HOA, county or state government dictating your lives? Yeah, you know, dictating - like the way they are dictating already.
I live in Arizona, and I’ve had two governors I’ve voted for and gotten elected (Mecham and Symington) get kicked out of office by our local oligarchy (called the Phoenix 40) because they didn’t like the men the people elected to run this state,
We also have a scary troll who calls himself Sheriff of Maricopa County, who has been the dictator of that post for 17 years, and who systematically crushes, harasses, imprisons and prosecutes anyone who criticizes him or who simply does not go along with his programs. His name is Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and, believe me, this guy is not nice. He runs his own intelligence agency, and keeps any would be critics scared. I am not joking. This man harasses and intimidates the very members of County government. People are scared of this man, because he uses the law as his own personal baseball bat, and he spies on everyone through the Internet and through his own spy agency.
Or how about Texas Governor Rick “Bildeberger” Perry who mandated all little girls in Texas be vaccinated with an STD whore vaccine by executive order even though he had a business interest in the company manufacturing the vaccine-and- the vaccine was not fully tested or safe – and - the vaccine itself sickened, hurt or destroyed a bevy of innocent little girls who got it. Yeah, this is the same guy who is now talking about secession from the union (with him at the new helm, I suppose).
Or how about all those states who take children away from their parents because the parents refuse to shoot up their kids with autism-causing vaccines, or who take away their kids because they refuse to submit them to deadly chemo and radiation therapy when their kids are diagnosed with cancer. Listen up, these are the people standing on the sidelines ready to take the reins of the new ‘ Turnip Republics of America.’
Anyone who has had his head stepped on or his arms twisted by your local friendly law enforcement thug knows how friendly these folks are. Oh yeah, real sweethearts. Makes me feel all warm and cuddly inside.
The truth is our state governments are composed of some pretty ruthless, mean and corrupt people, who really need someone to look over their shoulders (like the Federal Government) in order to keep them from going completely ape-shit on us.
Don’t get me wrong!
I’m not saying the Federal Government is any better. But what I am saying is that it takes two jealous, corrupt and competing thugs to keep the balance of power. The states don’t trust the Feds and the Feds don’t trust the states. Their mutual power struggle is what keeps either side from going medieval.
So my question is this:
Do you really want all supervision and control removed from your local and state plutocracy?
I thought so.
If you’ve had to suffer through arbitrary high-handed abuse of local HOAs, school districts, local courts and local police, like I have, then you know what type of people you are dealing with: people who need some sort of balance of power arrangement to keep them from going totally ape-crazy on all of us.
No, I don’t get than cuddly warm feeling when I think of the “Republic of Arizona”, because I know that in such a Republic, my ass will probably be drop-kicked into some concentration camp (heard about our tent cities?), my rights totally violated myself totally crushed, without me being able to complain to anyone or anything.
At least under the present system we can go cry to the Federal Government who will probably act if for no other reason than to work and legitimize its own power.
It’s a sad fact that government has kept the states under its control through eternal infusions of Federal money. In this way it has effectively nationalized policy on education, transportation and law enforcement.
So you see, our founding Fathers actually got it right (again) by instituting a system balanced out between State and Federal government. The two losers keep things under control by keeping an eye on each other.
The Feds are obviously getting out of control. What we need to do is come together at the individual, city, county and state level to disempower the Federal Government from the inside, not disassemble the entire USA.
If we are unhappy with the size and power of the Federal Government, then we have the rights and means to get its power back under control through State and Congressional initiatives, not thorough secession.
Secession means the end of the United States of America, a hell of a lot of license to our local warlords and a lot of insecurity for the rest of us.
Think Russia, China and Mexico won’t bribe out, control and walk all over the new “corn republics of America.”

In 9/11 they attacked us, killing innocent Americans who never had a chance.
They used this staged and covered up event – a crime of mass-murder- to justify beginning the destruction of our Constitution, our Bill of Rights and our Constitutional Government.
They used this staged event to label anyone questioning it as a nut or an enemy of the state.
Ladies and gentlemen, the people behind this, the people who covered it up and the people who are using it as an excuse to turn our country into a prison, these are the true ENEMIES OF THE STATE.
And I take the word ‘enemy’ very seriously. They have declared war against American society. And I take the word ‘war’ very seriously too.
In doing so, they taught us a very important lesson about life (and about themselves).
First of all, violence is part of life.
We have lived too long secure behind our borders, separated by two gigantic oceans, rich and prosperous and at peace while the rest of the world suffered mass-deprivation, war, brutality and terrorism. And I’m talking about modern countries like England, France, Germany and Italy.
Yeah, Europe knew terrorism and machinegun-armed security before we did.
9/11 showed us we are not untouchable.
In doing so, they showed us something we had been forgetting in this country:
1) that violence and brutality are a part of life
2) that we have been scheduled for our share of it...by them.
Ever since Vietnam we had been trying to forget.
We made up fairy tales about how everything can be resolved through negotiation. How every conflict is just some sort of misunderstanding.
The “collapse” of the Soviet Union seemed to confirm that.
9/11 made us smell the coffee.
This brings me to the second thing they showed us.
They showed us they are willing to murder us.
Yeah, murder us en masse, and I am not talking about Bin Laden or some other terrorist figure-head who used to be an intelligence asset.
I am talking about elements infiltrated INSIDE our own government, who have shown themselves to be the ENEMY.
The uncomfortable fact is that an unpalatable part of life is violence.
You can include that along with all the other unpalatables of it like work, taxes, debt, unfairness, corruption, disease and rudeness.
For too long we have taught our kids how to dial 9-11 or scream for help instead of how to punch a bully in the jaw.
This habit is especially worrying as it increasingly occurs in our middle and upper middle class communities (yeah, the lower class lives in violence, but they are in charge of absolutely nothing).
The simple fact is there comes times when violence happens.
It happens to you, it happens to a loved one. You didn’t ask for it. You didn’t want it. You get hit with it anyway.
You know it already.
When some big drunk bastard takes a handful of your girl's or your wife's rear end, you know you are in for it.
You got no where to go.
You know you will probably lose the brawl, but you dive in anyway..without hesitation.
Because to do anything less would not only be unmanly, but unnatural, and inhuman.
Our sovereignty and our rights are like that.
We don't presently live in an absolute dictatorship, but a big bastard is there taking it away bit by bit, helping himself to something that is ours and is precious.
Our natural, manly, human reaction is active opposition.
Life is just like that, and we should accept it.
Wars happen, and nations defend themselves (even if outnumbered) because they are sovereign - composed of sovereign citizens and patriots.
Things like this just happen...sorry!
The big problem today is the large majority of our educated white-bread middle class population is not trained to deal with it. It’s like violence is not even a part of their make up or their existence.
It used to be that the upbringing of any distinguished upper middle class gentleman included training in the ability to inflict violence – pistols, sabers, fisty-cuffs, choose your weapon.
Now training in violence for the upper middle class is taboo.
Instead, the upper middle class gets trained on how to cross your T’s and dot your I’s, punch the right tickets please and how to beg just right to get what you want.
I had to hear with disgust how a teenage girl student from a white bread upper middle class school was assaulted by ruder (lower class, bigger, uglier, older less, civilized) versions of her gender at a high school football game and robbed…on her own school’s turf and right in front of her classmates, their parents...and her teachers…all of whom did absolutely nothing.
It took a lower class version of a male teen (from the school of the assaulting amazons) to chase them down and run them into the arms of a policeman.
Stuff like this not only makes me sick, it makes me worry about the make-up of our middle class.
You see, the little girl was from an upper middle class school while the amazons (and the teenage hero) were form a lower class institution.
The problem is the middle and upper classes are the bulwark of society. If our middle class is made out of goo, then that’s pretty much what our institutions are going to turn into as well.
And speaking of goo…
It sickens me to see too many conspiracy websites, blogs and videos (mostly from left-leaning states and institutions) recommending the gooey way out.
One ‘Planet-X’ video recommended not engaging in any violent or disruptive acts of resistance to suppression, since the government would quickly terminate of all disruptive elements.
It also made fun of people who would attempt to flee into the wilderness, saying they would go on until they found their way blocked (showing a picture of a landslide).
Yeah, blocked most likely by government goons stationed on the roads, not landslides (I am wondering how many of these websites are sponsored by the government itself).
In another conspiracy catalog from Hawaii, if worse comes to worse, the writers recommend:
”…respect authority. If martial law is declared and soldiers come to your house looking for trouble, your good attitude may save your life, or lack thereof may get you shot. I don’t advocate the use of arms. The military has been professionally trained to use their weapons. They won’t think twice before blowing you away if you show the slightest bit of hostility, especially if you are toting a weapon. Guns may help you protect yourself from other citizenry but with the military you don’t stand a chance so if you want to live then be cooperative. The only people who are going to be taken away to concentration camps are the insurgents and combatants. They don’t have enough room to round us all up. Don’t try to be Rambo, because you and your whole family might very well die because of it. Are you starting to get what I’m saying here?”
Yeah, friend, I am starting to see a sniveling coward who believes in the omnipotence of a military who hasn’t even been able to occupy Iraq (a country the size of California) successfully, much less the entire United States. I see a person who thinks the overlords will spare him and his family because he cooperates, and let him live out his life as he sees fit because he is a good little lamb.
I see a deluded fool.
For crying out loud, this is an editorial in a conspiracy video and book catalog!
Did the conspiracy community spend 50 years studying the “Illuminati” and what they do to subject populations only to stop and consider the best way of surrendering to them?
Like the above, I am starting to see too many websites and blog comments appearing that seem to be propagandizing surrender and disguising it as ‘common sense.’
‘Why get yourself skewered by the invincible forces of the New World Order?’ they ask, ‘no reason to get carried away.’
My problem is I don’t see the reason or compromise part of surrendering you country and your family into the hands of proven mass-murderers.
These people have a track record.
They financed and facilitated mass-murder orgies like the Russian Revolution, the Chinese Revolution, the Cambodian Revolution, the Rwandan Revolution and from what I can see, the Nazi German revolution.
Oh yeah, real nice guys - people you can reason with.
I don’t like saying this, but the sheep-like nature of the common man seems to run deep.
In Australia, that manly nation down under, gun confiscation occurred in 1996. A lot of people were waiting on the sideline to see what the bronzed macho men of the outlaw continent would do once the government declared it was confiscating their guns.
The Australian cowboys turned in all their guns without so much as a whimper. It was easy for the government to do because all the guns were registered.
To be fair, many Australians did not turn in their guns…they buried them.
The numbers of guns ‘missing’ or ‘stolen’ are legion. The government did not bother to follow up on all the suspicious disappearances.
After all, why push their luck? They had just cowed down the population of an entire continent with the single stroke of a pen.
But let’s get this straight before I continue: universal gun-confiscation in this country would be like crossing the Rubicon. It’ll be a preparation for the slaughter of unarmed Americans.
Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Whether it be from forces foreign or domestic, an unarmed population is a population ready for slaughter, and these people have a particular habit for slaughter with a capital S!
And lets not mince words. The slaughter begins immediately after gun confiscation is carried out – by the criminals who still have guns.
The unarmed sheep population is then prey to armed criminals, who know the government has made things easy for them. The crime rate skyrockets along with murder.
And this is just the immediate effect of gun confiscation.
The Federal Government has developed a penchant for confiscating everybody’s guns in cases of local natural disasters and where a ‘state of emergency’ has been declared.
It only stands to reason that a general confiscation of guns can be activated if the emergency grows to a ‘national emergency.’
Even the excuse of a national emergency does not hold water. You need a gun to defend YOUR OWN HOUSEHOLD during a freaking national emergency.
My advice: if it is a local emergency, hide and bury your guns, and retrieve them once the search parties have left. Declare your guns stolen, if they get nosey. If it is a national emergency, do the same.
Once the goons are gone, retrieve your guns.
You see during a gun confiscation drive, nothing will work better than the old tried and true method of mass disobedience.
Historically, if a bad law was enacted, the population refused to obey it. The result? The law was abandoned. It’s been this way since the kings of Babylon.
A gun confiscation drive will not work if a major portion of the population refuses to obey. Even if government insists on never abandoning the law, it won’t work.
Don’t be frightened by propaganda showing SWAT teams assaulting gun resistors (the victims will probably be government prepped dupes anyway).
They don’t have enough SWAT, police or Army to confiscate even 5% of this country’s guns. Instead, they will be counting on mass fear and voluntary compliance to make something like this work.
If there is no cooperation, the law will collapse…period.
Don’t believe worthless promises about getting your guns back once the ‘national emergency’ is over.
Just ask the guns owners of New Orleans how many got their guns back once the ‘state of emergency ended’.
This passive-aggressive method naturally used by populations worldwide throughout history is the number one method of populations to resist unpopular government.
If there is a gun confiscation drive in THIS country, I expect zero compliance.
And let me say one thing about this government.
It likes to issue all these high-sounding ultimatums, but it sheepishly withdraws when it sees that the people aren’t going to go along.
When there is no compliance, the government tends to say something like “Oh, did I say that? I’m sorry, I think perhaps you just misunderstood.”
On the other hand, when enough sheep get in line with the program, the battle cry is “zero tolerance!”
In this sense, they are a bit like the Communists (which many of them now are, anyway).
Remember the Real ID, the ‘Super Highway, H1N1 Vaccine?
None of these things happened in spite of the government’s ‘do it or else’ proclamation because the states and the people REFUSED.
The government then proceeded to act like it had never made these arbitrary demands on the people in the first place!
It’ll be the same way with any gun confiscation.
If you see ‘Homeland Security’ treating everybody like cattle at the airports, its only because people are agreeing to be treated like cattle. The minute they start saying ‘to hell with this’ the government will stop.
Now let me speak of the limitations of government and the New World Order.
Our government can’t even control Iraq - a nation the size of California.
In fact, little Iraqi punks kicked police-state-ass when it came to the population-disarm-and-control program.
The government is doing even worse in Afghanistan.
What makes you think an army of this size will be able to control the entire United States?
Why do you think Obama is asking for his own militia?
Because the Army doesn’t have even close to enough men to do it, that’s why!
I am not an extremist to the point to think we need or even want civil war.
Now of late there has been talk of secession in this country.
I am not a fanatical ‘union or death’ person.
If a state is willing to spill its own blood to separate from the USA, my thought is: ‘WHOA....you can go ahead if that’s how you feel about it.’
On the other hand, it doesn’t take a genius to see that we have everything to lose if this country falls apart - through civil war.
It’s the unity of our country which got us independence. It’s the unity of our country which brought us economic and political success. And it’s the unity of our country which has kept us sovereign and secure so far.
You want to see what secession looks like?
Look at Bosnia, Kossovo, the ex-Soviet Republics, look at Lebanon, look at Palestine.
In fact...look anyplace where thugs with different colored bandanas randomly murder people.
And yeah, I am talking about government militias here (please note the word 'government' in this description)
Historically militias have been used by government to commit and cover up atrocities the army can’t commit because it keeps too many records. So why not just hire a gofer with a gun and a colored bandanna to do your murderous dirty work?
Recently I have seen the federal government call for the creation of militias.
I have also seen states calling for the creation of militias.
Finally, I have seen established militias asking to (get this) become operational tools of the federal government!
The philosophy is that as tools of the federal government, ‘our’ militias will safeguard the way the federal government treats us.
And if secession happens, what makes you think your local ‘state republic’ government will be any more tolerant of your difference of opinion or your guns than the feds are?
See your local friendly sheriff, police and SWAT thugs in action lately?
But my point is this:
I believe we stand a better to have the federal government disempowered from the inside than through national disintegration.
I believe we can succeed by coming together rather than separating.
Think about it.
Where would the American Revolution have gone if the colonies began fighting amongst themselves or going their own separate ways?
And as to seceding (and ending the United States as a country) – isn’t that what the New World Order wants to happen?
I believe a tearing apart of the United States into neutralized, ineffective and easily controlled units could very well be a part of the New World Order’s plan for us.
(In fact, I have been told and shown this)
What better way to get rid of the ‘America problem’?
So I don’t believe in secession or civil war.
I believe in local unified resistance to Federal policy at all levels – local, county, state, and federal. I believe in civilian, police and military coming together in rejecting these unlawful and unconstitutional laws emanating from the pens of these traitors.
Check it out:
Russia and China are already licking their chops.
Russia is saying how it will occupy Alaska once America divides into six parts (see Professor Igor Panarin).
China is proclaiming how it will genocide the Western half of the United States to make room for its own population (see General Chi Haotian).
This is why gun confiscation resistance is such a serious matter. Its serious because, unknown to many, it is the prelude to enslavement and slaughter.
It is a sort of Rubicon the government cannot cross at the risk of ending itself. Just as gun registration has historically been a prelude to gun confiscation, gun confiscation has been a prelude to tyranny and slaughter.
I therefore advocate absolute resistance to gun confiscation.
If dying for your country is not up your ally, then disobey for your country.
Hide your guns, declare them stolen. If possible, hide them in a stash someplace away from your home and property, and retrieve them later (the goons might quite possibly bring metal detectors).
Alexander Solzhenitsin lamented in his Gulag Archipelago how sorry all the denizens of the gulag were that they did not simply sink a hammer or shovel into the skulls of the raincoat-wearing goons sent to arrest them in the middle of the night.
If everyone had done this, he lamented, the mass arrests, imprisonments and murders would have stopped.
Our dilemma is pretty much the same.
If every single SWAT team knows that every attempt at gun confiscation will end in a gunfight. If every single goon knows that tonight’s job might very well end up with him not eating cheerios with his kids next morning, then the gun confiscations will stop. Period.
After a couple of dozen of these unpleasant experiences, the SWAT teams will give up.
Oh yeah, they’ll come up with a good excuse like, ‘the law is too unpopular, or ‘its not fair on us to make us do that’ or 'its not our jurisdiction' or even 'its unconstitutional!' but they’ll stop, take my word.
This is the power of individual resistance happening on an individual level…across the board.
So join a ‘patriotic group’ if you want. But please take into account many of these groups are simply blacklist-makers for the establishment (you might want to be less forthcoming with your private information).
With individual resistance you don’t have to put yourself on somebody’s mailing list (or blacklist). You simply make up your mind that you will not compromise your principles, that you will not comply, and, if necessary, that you will resist to the death.
That last part sounds harsh, but who would not resist to the death if his family was under attack? And our families coming under attack is exactly what I’m talking about.
Check out the Soviet, Chinese, Cambodian and Rwandan purges. Huge mess loads of families came under attack there. Millions of families were done unto death in those purges…after all the guns had been confiscated, that is. And remember, the people we are against financed, cheered and applauded all those genocides.
Life is just like that.
My sources tell me that gun-confiscation in the US is too big for our local government to handle. They believe the NWO realizes this fact. That is why they believe gun confiscation will happen only under foreign occupation and after the engineered collapse of United States.
But they could be wrong.
The United Thugs of America might just be stupid enough to try to pry our guns out of our hands one gun-owner at a time.
But regardless, if genocide comes to genocide. If it is already in the cards to ‘genocide’ America. If this is already what the New World Order crowd has decided. I would rather go out fighting than go out sheepishly.
Because a quiet death is oblivion, but a brave death is an eternal message.
I would like to stress this final point.
If the government starts to confiscate guns, keep your guns. If the United States collapses and militia goons start confiscating guns, keep your guns, If UN occupying forces take over and start taking away guns, keep your guns. If we are occupied by a foreign power who declares guns illegal, keep your guns.
No matter what happens, keep your guns.
If you surrender them you will be sorry later…guaranteed.

We could lose the dollar overnight.
The American people don’t know this because they don’t understand the mechanics of the modern day monetary system.
The big can of elephant worms in the room is our National Debt.
Ergo Can of Worms #1: Bankruptcy
The US is already on the verge of bankruptcy.
With its $16 trillion dollar debt and annual $1 trillion interest payments in can barely afford, the US is standing on an economic precipice.
The incapacity to pay interest on a debt is a threshold measurement for bankruptcy.
The day America fails to make its trillion dollar interest payment on its debt is the day America is declared bankrupt.
If you look at Greece, then you get a hankering on how bankrupt countries are treated.
Now everything in this world has been turned into speculation (as you might have noticed).
Money is no exception.
Money is speculated at the International Currency Exchange or ICE.
Here money and government bonds are bought and sold like you buy and sell stocks on the stock market.
Ergo, the value of your national currency is liable to rocket up or sink downward depending on the speculation that occurs at the ICE.
It is because of this that the value of the dollar (or any currency) can disintegrate overnight.
A massive speculatory move by the powers that be can destroy the value of the dollar within 24 hours.
Remember Mexico in 1994?
The bottom totally fell out of the Peso and it began losing all its value within a days.
It was an emergency of such magnitude that the US had to come to the rescue with an immediate $50 Billion bailout set up by President Clinton.
Now if this happens to us, who is going to come to OUR rescue?
The answer is nobody.
In fact, a lot of countries might just cheer as we go down the toilet.
The worse thing is, that the mechanisms that can destroy our dollar are already in place.
Can of worms #2: Dollar Collapse
The Communist Party of the People’s Republic of China is holding $1.13 trillion of our debt.
All it will take is for China to start selling those bonds and dollars to cause and OVERNIGHT collapse of the dollar on the International Currency Exchange (ICE).
If this happens, you might be hearing of the sudden plummet of the dollar as you watch the morning news (or check your morning email), cause it won’t even have time to appear in the newspapers.
This opens can of worms #3: Inflation
We are an import-based nation.
Most of the stuff that we get we import (including all our produce!).
If the dollar starts plummeting in value…
…all those exporters are going to start wanting more and more (constantly depreciating) dollars for their stuff.
At this point, I guess we could print even more dollars on the currency exchange market, but that would be like a drowning man trying to drink his way out of a swimming pool.
Our debt is already at peak levels, and the results would be temporary if any.
At this point, the cost of every imported item will begin to skyrocket - and that’s just about everything.
Because we import gas, the price of gas will skyrocket.
Because the price of gas is skyrocketing, the price of transporting everything will skyrocket.
Because the price of transporting everything is skyrocketing, the price of EVERYTHING will skyrocket.
Now comes can of worms #4: Stagflation
Our economic situation is unique not just in the world, but in history.
The government is constantly borrowing more and more money, but none of it is making its way to the public.
Because all of its is going into saving the government and the banks…not us.
It’s all going into Wall Street banks (which have made $trillions disappear in the derivatives market) to keep them solvent.
And the rest is going to the government to keep it running, service its debt, keep the dollar high, keep our allies friendly, Iraq, Afghanistan, social security, welfare etc.
So what we have a situation where the government has actually borrowed $5 trillion dollars since 2008, with very little if any of it going to the American public.
Incredible but true!
This has led to a situation where the government borrows more and more, while there is less and less money inside the American economy.
As you might have noticed, prices are going down, not up, because we have no more money, and no more money is being injected into the economy.
This then is the setting for the perfect storm.
Inwardly, there is no more money circulating within the American economy.
Outwardly, the dollar loses all its value.
Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in world history, I would like to present to you the hitherto theoretical phenomenon of STAGFLATION!
Stagflation is the condition in which people have less and less money while prices keep going up and up.
This is literally the worse of both economic hells.
Up until know this has been a condition which has only existed in the minds of economic theoreticians.
But it now seems about to become a plausible reality.
Now, for the first time, it seems like its going to happen right here in America!
This indeed is the worse can of worms: rising prices within a population that has less and less money.
If you can imagine a total economic hell, this is it.
I don’t think a society in a condition of stagflation can stay a society for very long.
At this point, the best thing America could do is:
1) get rid of the dollar
2) default on its debt completely and absolutely
3) shut down the Federal Reserve
4) start printing a new debt-free currency through the Department of the Treasury directly (if possible backed by gold or silver)
This would be what a real America run by real Americans would do.
But what are the chances of it happening under the watch of the internationalist custodians who inhabit the Federal Government?
Didn’t they let the Federal Reserve run our face into the ground in the 1930’s?
Chances are…they will run to the Federal Reserve, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank for help…while they let us stew in our stagflation for a while.
The solution, of course, won’t involve defaulting on our debt, but exchanging something for it to the international banking order (our public lands, our spheres of influence and trade, our natural resources, perhaps even our rights and sovereignty).
This solution would have more to do with submitting to the New World Order than recovering our economy (remember, many other countries would also have be thrown into chaos by our collapse).
The UN might even be called in to manage some of the riots while the President and a desperate Congress sell the country over to the New World Order.
(End of Article)
I felt a sudden urge to include an addendum here, instead of leaving everyone clueless with a lap of bad news.
What you can do if the stuff hits the fan?
What could you do to prepare?
The only thing I can think of economically is to buy silver (my sources told me gold will confiscated by the government).
Silver is ‘spendable’, affordable, keeps its value, and historically has never been confiscated.
People also say, accumulate food, water, weapons and ammunition.
The advice I have received on this is to do it, but do it as a community of several people or families you trust, not just one, living in the same location and watching out for each other in the lowest key possible.
The other advice I have gotten (and this is directly against my nature) is hide: hide your wealth, hide your possessions, hide your weapons, if possible, hide your location.
Don’t tell anyone of your plans or what you have (not even friends or colleagues) who is not a direct member of your ‘survival team.’ The advice I received is that this can be done at the urban or rural level.

Before the year 1990 every decade seemed to have a flavor all its own.
The 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s seemed to have their own distinctive fashions, music and lingo.
Something happened, though, near the turn of the century during the mid-1990’s.
We entered the matrix.
As I awaited the new eccentricities of the new ‘oughts’ decade... something happened:
The culture that had been implanted in the 1990’s pretty much stayed the same right through the new decade (which is now almost over).
As a careful watcher of fads, fashions and decade culture, for the first time I saw absolutely no change in the music, the clothing or the language.
Decade culture, in other words, had come to a grinding halt.
I waited patiently for the changed to come. I waited ten years. Haircuts seemed to go crew with long sideburn for a while, then that went away.
The clothing was the worse. The exact same baggy clothing of the 1990’s.
Music was no different: the exact same obnoxious hip hop of the 1990’s. In fact, hip hop seems to have become an eternal fixture.
Now we are finished with the first decade of the New Millenium with no noticeable change in pop culture.
Did we finally enter the Matrix?
I asked around.
I asked young people and old people. I asked culture experts.
I found nothing.
They agreed with me that the new decade had brought absolutely nothing new.
Pop culture seemed to have come to a jarring halt.
Then I though about it for a while.
If a ‘new world order’ is being built, then it would have to come with a world culture.
You can’t create a world culture if the culture is changing every 10 years, much less expand on it.
So they froze it.
The New World Order culture was created in the 1990’s and frozen in time to be carried into eternity.
Welcome to the Matrix.
Welcome to the culture of the New World Order.

This group has declared war on us.
These people are not college graduates, they are servile products of the elite institutions of Yale, Harvard, Princeton, MIT, Columbia, and Berkeley.
These people are not politicians, they are members of obedience-based political clubs called Round Tables, represented by the Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and Club of Rome. They attend secret meetings (which we called Bildeberger meetings) where they receive their commands verbally every year.
These people are not members of college fraternities, they are members of obedience-based sodomistic cults.
These people are not you and me. Their attitude towards you and me is like that of people towards cattle.
These people are not naïve politicians, they are conscious accomplices in crime.
These people are not Christians, Mormons Muslims, Jews, Buddhist or any other type of normal and ‘moral’ religion, they only masquerade as being religious, they have their own secret religion, in which they must prove their disdain for the rest of us.
These people are not normal people, they are bisexual sodomists who butch up their act in order to be accepted by normal society.
These people are not like us. They just resemble us.
Our modern dysfunctional economic system was built by them, is now threatened with collapse by them, and is targeted to be rebuilt by them, with us on the bottom tier.
For 100 years they have controlled our economy because we gave them the power to print our money, and now they are using that control to gain absolute social and political control over us.
It’s about time to call them out for what they really are.
We don’t need acolytes from Yale, Harvard, Princeton, MIT, Columbia, Berkeley, or any of the other anti-human institution running our government.
We don’t need followers from Freemasonry, Mormonism, B’nai Brith or any other ‘cult’ making decisions on our behalf.
We don’t need any ‘obedience-indoctrinated members’ from the Round Table, the CFR, the Trilateral Commission or the Bohemian Grove telling us what to do.
We don’t need any more crypto-people who masquerade as something they are not either religiously, ideologically or ethnically.
We don’t need any more closet Marxists guiding our way.
We don’t need anyone with ‘lineage’ who can trace (or has bothered to trace) his ‘lineage’ back to the Mayflower or the kings of England.
We don’t need parasites from the Federal Reserve front organization keeping us informed of how much our phony ‘debt’ is and how much we ‘owe’ them. We owe them nothing! They credited us with debt from money they made out of nothing
THESE PEOPLE ARE THE ENEMY.
They have sworn to kill and bury us.
We don’t need to follow them anymore.
Their laws aren’t our laws. Their ideas aren’t our ideas. Their beliefs aren’t our beliefs. Their loyalties are alien to us.
In fact, to hell with their beliefs, their laws, their rules and their regulations, in fact…
…TO HELL WITH THEM!
It’s about time we realized this concept…and acted on it.

The US Government KNEW in 1994 that irresponsible and illegal banking practices would steer the country towards a financial collapse and an economic disaster 15 years before it actually happened.
To make things worse, it was one of our government’s own agencies (doing its job) which blew the whistle on the matter. The government (specifically Congress, our Executive and the Federal Reserve) squashed it.
Here it is:
In 1994 over-the-counter-derivatives (OTCs) got the attention of Clinton’s Commodity Futures and Trading Commission (CFTC) chief Brooksley Born, when it was revealed that OTCs were behind the collapse of Banker’s Trust.
CFTC’s Born, began investigating over-the-counter-derivatives and quickly found out that:
1) the government did not follow OTCs
2) the government did not regulate OTCs
3) the government did not know what OTCs were
4) the trade of over-the-counter-derivatives (OTCs) was occurring between banks freely, without exchanges and secretly without any accountability (in short, it was a gigantic black market)
5) the trading market was awash with secretly traded OTCs
6) OTCs had collapse of the major banking institution of Bankers Trust)
Now it does not take a genius to see that this needed looking into, especially when you are the head of the COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION, in charge of regulating the TRADE OF COMMODITIES AND FUTURES, like Brooksley Born was.
But in this she was about to discover how wrong she was.
During the investigation, Born got an alarming impression of over-the-counter- derivative trading as she heard the recordings of OTC traders laughing at the gigantic amounts of money they were getting for junk derivatives.
These men knew they were selling junk, that they were selling it in mass quantities and that somewhere down the ladder, people were going to get screwed.
In fact, they called the act of investing in OTC derivative options “placing bets,” a term that would become more and more common in Wall Street.
It didn’t take long for the 12 largest banks in America to notice that the CFTC was about to launch an investigation into their unrecorded, under-the-table, free-for-all trading of derivatives.
They mobilized all their resources at their disposal to stop the CFTC, and its chair, Brooksley Born, from uncovering their scam.
They sent their peons, Arthur Levitt (Security and Exchange Commission – the SEC), Robert Rubin (Secretary of the Treasury), and Alan Greenspan (Chairman of the Federal Reserve) to talk to CFTC chair Brooksley Born and block her investigation.
Their message to CFTC chair Brooksley Born and to Congress:
if this type of investigative effort was pursued, economic Armageddon would occur.
But the CFTC wasn’t buying it. Quite to the contrary. In their mind, if this type of out-of-control derivative trading continued, they saw a definite economic Armageddon coming.
So the banks mobilized Levitt (SEC), Rubin (Treasury), Rubin’s deputy, Larry Summers (Rubin’s deputy) and Alan Greenspan (Federal Reserve) to testify before Congress on what a clueless amateur and destructive bureaucrat Brooksley Born was.
Unbeknown to Born, they also mobilized their trump card: the banking lobbies (the most powerful lobbies in the nation), who assailed Congress in an all-out coordinated lobby blitzkrieg.
By 1998, Congress was brought into the picture, and a whole series of Congressional hearings were scheduled to see what the CFTC was doing.
Arthrur Levitt (SEC), Robert Rubin (Treasury), Larry Summers (Rubin’s deputy), and Alan Greenspan (Federal Reserve) all testified before the Senate on how CFTC interference in the flow of derivative trading would bring the economic boom the nation was enjoying to a jarring halt.
This was strange because all the CFTC was threatening to do was investigate derivative trading.
But this seemed such a delicate issue that the cover-up quartet lobbied for immediate suspension of all such investigative activities.
You see, what the CFTC had stumbled across something very big and very dangerous.
During the Congressional hearings, one bought-and-paid for Senator after another took turns grilling and chastising CFTC chair Brooksley Born on what a presumptive, over-reaching and economically damaging thing she was doing by threatening to ‘interfere’ (actually merely investigate) derivative trading.
Senator Phil Gramm (R-Texas) made an especially big ass of himself, as did Senator Richard Lugar (R-Indiana), who could not help nodding and smiling warmly at the testimony of the cover-up quartet.
Most of these Congressional jack-asses did not even know what a derivative was, but there was Alan Greenspan, reassuring them everything was alright, but that the alright would not continue if Brooksley Born was let loose.
That was all that Congress needed.
Brooksley Born was trying to warn America that the economy was on its way to self-destructing. And it was our very own Congress who was putting her through the wringer for daring to do so.
Our very own Congress was selling America down the river!
In fact, it would later be Congress itself who would pass all the laws further de-regulating the banking industry and guaranteeing this irresponsible behavior when it came to mortgages (for the 'good of the American homeowner', of course). This would eventually lead to the bust.
But back to 1998...
Congress, and more specifically, the Congressional committee had the whole situation sewed up, with the respective committee chairs, under the guidance of the banking lobby, directing the crushing of Brooksley Born and the CFTC.
Congress proceeded to remove the authority of the CFTC from investigating any derivative trading...which was incredible in and of itself.
In effect, Congress had shut down the CFTC and crushed its director on the behest of the banking lobby.
Brooksley Born would resign soon after the thrashing.
The memorable and haunting image of Brooksley Born, a highly trained commodity specialist, simply looking down and smiling in resignation as one congressman after another figuratively breaks a chair over her head is priceless.
She knows the game is up, the congress has been bought, and that the big bosses have taken control, and that America is on course for destruction.
That same year, LTCM (Long Term Capital Management) went under by way of derivative trading.
Greenspan, Rubin, Summers and Levitt again appeared before congress, warning that economic Armageddon was here if the government did not act...to bail out LTCM.
Let me point out Greenspan’s hypocrisy here.
He had always said, and his attacks on Brooksley Born were based on the assumption that the “market regulates itself.” Well, here was a golden opportunity for the market to do so - by doing away with LTCM.
What did Greenspan do?
He went screeching to government for a bailout!
After 4 days, Mr. ‘market-regulates-itself’ Greenspan arranged for the top 14 banks to contribute $400 million each to the Fed bailout fund to rescue LTCM.
That was just the beginning.
Later, with the Bush administration, and its compliant Congress, absoute deregulation mania took hold.
With Bush, derivative trading increased exponentially, and spread to the real estate market.
By 2007, the totally unregulated over-the-counter derivative trading market had grown to $595 trillion (that’s $595 trillions worth of junk!) kept afloat by a continuous river of demand created by the banks funneling the Fed’s easy money.
So there you have the names of the men who helped cover-up the biggest, most corrupt and most destructive (it has destroyed our economy) scandal in our history:
Alan Greenspan (chair of the Federal Reserve)
Robert Rubin ( Secretary of the Treasury)
Arthur Levitt (head of the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC)
…and Larry Summers (deputy secretary of the Treasury and Rubin’s stooge)
Along with the cooperative members of our Congress.
Oh, and one more thing.
Brooksley Born was replaced as head of the CFTC by Rubin’s assistant, (Gary Gensler) who now continues to hold the post under Obama.
…Larry Summers survived his role in covering up the economic destruction of America to become…
…director of the National Economic Council under Obama!
From here this man continues to make key economic decisions.
In other words, a man responsible for America’s ‘economic armageddon’ under the last administration continued to direct economic policy behind the back of our new 'change' president.
More recently, after making sure the US economy was totally trashed, Larry Summers abandoned the sinking ship of state and went back to Harvard. Who wants to be on deck when the stuff hits the fan, right?
Some ‘change,’ Obama.
What’s important here?
The Federal Reserve, The Treasury Department, the SEC, the CFTC, Congress and probably the President himself (the Treasury, the SEC and the CFTC are all agencies under his supervision) knew what was happening in 1996.
They went out of their way not to listen to the CFTC’s whistle-blowing alert on the unsound state of our economic system, but they collaborated to squash it.
Our government knew the economic basis of this country was not sound way back in 1996. They were warned, and could probably see that it was self-destructive system, bound to collapse some time in the not too distant future.
They did not care.
They said ‘we are going to continue on this road.’
In 2008, a full 12 years after our government was informed and abundantly warned that a collapse would happen. It happened.
What the CFTC warned us would happen, happened.
The shame of it all is that our own Congress (especially our congressional committee leaders) itself led the way into silencing and then disempowering the CFTC from doing what it was supposed to do: regulate the commodity and futures market.
This was an incredible instance of the Legislative branch castrating a portion of the Executive…for the worse.
But, I guess the incredible happens when the banking lobby enters the picture.
In other words, we were warned more of a decade before of the economic collapse that would follow if the irresponsible banking practices of the 1990’s were allowed to continue.
And I am sure the CFTC and Brooksley Born were not the only ones giving us warning.
We did not listen. In fact, we killed the messengers.
Do we deserve what we are now going to get or what?
I always held our Legislative branch (Congress) in high esteem. I always thought they would be the branch that would blow the whistle (not kill the whistleblower).
After analyzing this event, I cannot see Congress as more than a branch of the corporate and banking world.
These guys are not our representatives, they are their whores. They represent Wall Street directly and will do whatever Wall Street tells them to do, even if it means destroying their very own country.
Congress went out of its way to make sure we continued along the road to doom that we were following. They suddenly developed a form of solidarity and dynamic initiative when it came to shutting down the agency which tried to warn us.
See, Congress is not really a collection of ineffective fuddy duddies. They act quite cunningly and effectively when they get a direct command directly from the masters!
In this case, a direct command to let America destroy itself.
What gets me is the hypocrisy of these people.
They are the first to start pointing the fingers and screaming at Greenspan, AIG, and FreddiMac,when it is THEY, yes THEY who created the laws and deregulations which destroyed this country economically.
It was they who, after having created such laws, destroyed the careers of anyone who opposed them.
Thank you Congress, you bunch of bought and paid for whores.
The key lesson is this:
The PAC/Lobby system is completely broken and has to be done away with before it does away with us, which cannot be too far off.
The funny thing is how they keep threatening economic Armageddon every time we disagree with their policies.
What did Treasury Secretary Rubin tell Congress would happen if they began supervising derivative trading?
What did Treasury Secretary Paulson tell America would happen if we failed to bail out all the banks?
That’s right, Economic Armageddon.
Well, guess where we’re at guys.
That’s right: ECONOMIC ARMAGEDDON.
The funny thing is we got here by being stampeded by the same people who made sure we would come to this by threatening us with exactly what we would get anyway.
Let’s stop listening to these people.
Oh, but before going, let me just demonstrate to you who is really in charge with a simple list of our 'officials':
Treasury Secretary under Clinton: Robert Rubin (ex-head Goldman & Sachs)
Treasury Secretary under W. Bush: Henry Paulson (ex-head Goldman & Sachs)
Treasury Secretary under Obama: Timothy Geithner, (Rubin’s (Goldman-Sachs’) protégé and undersecretary)
Head of the President’s National Economic Council under Obama: Larry Summers, Rubin’s (Goldman-Sachs) obedient protégé and undersecretary).
See the connection?
Goldman-Sachs and peons of Goldman-Sachs are in charge of the Treasury Department, …and have been since the Clinton Administration.
They engineered the economic collapse of America which has been happening since the Clinton Administration.
Since the Treasury Department is itself in charge of the President’s security through its Secret Service, this makes the President de facto dependent on Goldman-Sachs for his own life.
How else to say it?
The President, along with the Treasury Department, and our entire economy seems to be held hostage by one of the most powerful banking house in the world.
Can you spell o-w-n-e-d, boys and girls?
How’s that for corporate government?
You can see a well documented version of the whole sickening story in the Frontline episode “The Warning” available from PBS.

I urge you to first watch the film ‘Pandorum’ before reading this essay.
It will make so much more sense (and prevent any spoilers).
I watched the science-fiction film ‘Pandorum’ the other day and quite soon soon I began noticing a few things about it.
First of all, it was not an American production (too much meaning on too many levels).
Second, it was continuously referring to many archetypes and myths, which struck me and stayed with me much after seeing the film.
It took me several days to work out what had haunted me about the film, and I found out it was more than just the disturbing story.
The movie was talking in code.
It was babbling about reality and creation, about god and the devil, and about the ‘fall’ of man.
I have never been struck so deeply by a film.
This to me was a very disturbing movie, and not just on the viewing level.
The film actually puts factors into play that challenges and questions our view of reality from the occult and religious point of view.
In short, it offers us an alternate perspective of the fall of creation by stating:
Creation has a mad man at the controls
How off-base is that really?
I am not a religious person, but I do believe we exist in a state of denied reality.
I admit that what follows comes from a momentarily disturbed mind. Disturbed at being exposed to the concepts that Pandorum had to offer.
But then waking into a nightmare is often disturbing.
Read the following carefully, but be forewarned - the material which follows...
...can trigger Pandorum.
What follows is a direct list of the astounding 'triggers' and archetypes which appeared in the film, many which contradict basic understanding or religious culture:
The concept of trinity in the three crewmembers who are left to manage the ship while the rest of the crew sleeps in suspended animation (unawareness).
THE DEATH OF THE TRINITY
The concept that the world had originally been put under the rule of three ‘gods’ (The Trinity) but that that this trinity is now dead, and that the world is now headed by the one surviving member.
We always hear of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
In the movie, if you look at the three crewmembers of the trinity, they are equal to father, mother and son (God, Mary and Christ?).
In remembering the Holy Trinity, are we remembering not what is, but what was?
The concept of the devil in that one of the trinity turns against the ship (creation) and kills the other two, leaving him as sole god of that world (the ship). The Trinity (and the correct order of things) has been totally deposed.
FALL OF THE GODS
The concept that humanity is a race of fallen gods.
Every crewmember aboard the Elysium is the equivalent of a ‘god’ in that he or she is a highly trained technician, in other words, a peer and equal of Gallo.
Yet because creation has fallen and is under the control of the Devil (Gallo), they are not allowed to see this. They emerge from their sleep chambers, and they don’t even know who they are, vulnerable to Gallo’s instruction on what reality is. Everyone has heard the occult phrase ‘We are all gods’ or ‘I am god.’
Makes you think, doesn’t it?
BEING CAST OUT OF PARADISE
The concept of humanity being cast out of paradise (a better existence) not out of righteousness, but because of more base reasons.
The casting out of the crew into the lower bowels of the ship to live in a state of slow deterioration, constant fear and eventual cannibalism resembles the casting out of man from Paradise unto this world.
But in the case of the Elysium, it is not punishment, but the will of a ruthless control-freak. Add to this the reason Adam and Eve were cast out (for eating from the tree of knowledge) and you have another uncomfortable analogy.
THE CORRUPTIVE EFFECT OF ABSOLUTE POWER
The concept of absolute power corrupting absolutely through a form of inevitable insanity.
As absolute God of the ship, Gallo gets to practice every sort of depravity amongst the sleeping crew, as he awakens them one by one to play games with them for almost 1000 years.
Power was made to be shared.
The holy trinity demonstrated in the story reflected this natural fact, which exists in things like the distributed powers of our own government, and in many other things.
Absolute power is not only evil, it is unworkable.
Just look at North Korea, and its god-man. The absolute power that Gallo assumes over every single member of the crew on his ship corrupts him absolutely, and leads to a form of existential hell.
The notion of one man, without any reference to the opinions of any other (like absolutist dictators - or God?) is demonstrated as leading to a form of alienated insanity.
The concept that time is not what it seems.
The relativity of time comes across as something awesome.
What does time matter if you are Gallo?
You can walk out of your suspended animation chamber and do whatever you want until you become bored. Then you can go back to sleep. For how long? A decade, a century? How about for three centuries, just to supply some interesting change to the environment?
Time is meaningless to a being that can suspend time, and come in and out of it at a whim.
In this way, Gallo is virtually immortal (like god).
THE CORRUPTIVE EFFECT OF IMMORTALITY
The concept of immortality as being corrupting
As a ‘god’ Gallo is not only omnipotent, but immortal.
He is in total control of the reality of his creation. Because there is no limit either by way of morality or time, or reference, Gallo truly assumes the disposition of a ‘god’ in that everything he thinks simply is or becomes. Every thought he creates is righteous and true. In other words, it just is.
CREATION AS HAVING BEEN SABOTAGED
The concept that creation has been sabotaged and taken over by some evil force.
Obviously creation was something majestic and grand – the Elysium functioning as it should be, granting its entire crew an aware, secure and prosperous future, and a measure of immortality (through the hibernation chambers), as well as a democratic and powerful society on its way to paradise.
The Elysium could itself be seen as a sort of Mount Olympus, a home of the gods. All this until the ‘one’ enters the bridge and takes over the entire vessel (creation).
Mythology is filled with the concept of a ‘war of the gods’ and a ‘casting down’ of the gods. The Greek mythic battle of Kronos and his Titans (the original inhabitants of creation) againts Zeus (Kronos’ son) and his allies (the rebels of creation).
In the end, Kronos (the real father of creation) is cast down into Hades, along with all his loyal allies, and Zeus is left in charge. Now Zeus’ one can readily relate to that of Gallo.
Zeus is simply a self-absorbed and paranoid imp, toying with creation, which he treats as his own private playpen.
The Greeks respected Zeus not because he was the most perfect, but because, he quite simply seemed to be at the controls of creation (much like Gallo is).
In the same manner, Christian concepts present a battle between the Devil and his angels and God and his angels, with the Devil being cast down into the world.
But who is to say who cast down who?
Isn’t the victor the very first to proclaimed the vanquished ‘the devil?’
Take a look around you. Read the newspapers, and then think about it: who cast down who?
In the Egyptian mythos, Set, the Devil, actually kills Osiris (the good god). Osiris later re-emerges again, but this time the god of the underworld, to which he has been cast down.
How is that for uncomfortable?
The concept that demons are the enslaved and servile remains of what used to be gods.
The concept of demons, the ‘Hunters,’ represent the fallen gods (or angels) who have been corrupted by the actions of the one god so much so that they can no longer be considered to have any resemblance to their original form. They are virtually mindless beasts.
How close is the behavior and appearance of the ‘Hunters’ to that image we all have of demons. But the tragic revelation is that the demons did not become so through acts of their own, but of the god who enslaved them, and now manipulates (not orders) them to do his bidding, just as he does with the humans.
The double tragedy is that the demons emerged not from the very worst, but from the very best, who refused to go along with the Devil, and so were banished to the ‘netherworld’, not for being evil, but for being good.
Tolkien offers a similar concept in the creation of the ‘orcs’.
LOWER AND HIGHER EXISTENCE
The concept of a lower and higher existence or dimensions.
The ending of the film, brings into stark and chilling contrast, a form of ultra-dimensionality, of opposite worlds so close to each other, yet an infinity away.
The Elysium is only a thousand meters under an ocean surface that separates it from paradise. Yet how hopelessly separated it is!
ABSOLUTE POWER and UNAWARENESS PAVES WAY TO HELL
The concept that absolute power and absolute unawareness leads to a hopeless perdition.
The movie makes clear that there is a very clear cut way to hell:
1) absolute power and 2) absolute unawareness.
Looking at this planet’s history of intellectual suppression and reinforced ignorance, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we are quite close to achieving it (absolute hell, that is).
Centralized absolutist governments have not made happy abodes for their inhabitants. Each one becomes like a Gallo, slowly losing touch with reality, while reality becomes more hellish.
Awareness is the key factor here. Each inhabitant of the Elysium (except Gallo) is totally unaware of reality. As such, they are totally under Gallo’s control.
This asphyxiating unawareness makes it impossible for them to better their condition or change their reality in any way. The ‘hunters’ represent the ultimate and extreme condition of unawareness.
There is a tie-in here: Absolute power demands absolute unawareness.
They go hand in hand.
The outstanding fact here is how much of a gigantic difference awareness really makes, and how devastating unawareness really is.
If you come right down to it, absolute power reinforces unawareness and proceeds to construct its own reality, just like Gallo does.
MORALITY IS RELATIVE
The concept that morality is relative, changing and totally dependent on its environment.
Morality is presented as something which is subject to what surrounds it. If there is no one to judge or even know what one has done. judgment becomes impossible.
Without judgment, morality becomes nonexistent.
Morality is relative.
One hopes that there is a universal law that proclaims what is constructive moral, while what is destructive is immoral, but who is to differentiate if only one entity is in charge of it all, and everything revolves around his own construction?
STAGNATION AS A PROCESS OF PERPETUAL DESTRUCTION
The concept of perpetual self-destruction as a form of perpetual stagnation.
Every single living thing aboard the Elysium exists to serve as protein (food) for the other living things.
In other words, it is a world that exists by eating itself in perpetuity.
How close are we to this dark world of perpetual destruction?
All you have to do is read our history to see how we rise and fall, create and then destroy ourselves.
Isn't our very own world building and destroying itself…in perpetuity.
How many civilizations have risen and fallen into dust?
Aren’t we really trained to ‘eat' (compete against) each other and prey on each other? At work, we fear those under us because they are bright, and hate those above us because we find them undeserving.
Aren’t we living out Gallo’s reality?
THE DEVIL AS IN CHARGE OF THIS WORLD
The concept of an evil being having dethroned creation and sabotaged it, to present us with the reality in which we exist today.
Having killed off the other two thirds of the trinity, the true Devil is in charge of the world, regardless of what he calls himself: Peyton, Gallo, or God.
GOD OR DEVIL?
The concept of us not really knowing who is God or who is Devil.
Do the terms actually mean anything except who is the evil one and who is the good?
How do we know which is which? Who deposed who? Who won the struggle?
Is God Gallo, disguising himself as Peyton?
Is the 'Devil' Bower really the 'serpent' trying to rescue us from a fallen and naked existence?
Certainly the serpent sounds more like Bower when he tells Eve to eat from the tree of knowledge.
And God sounds more like Gallo when he becomes alarmed that man has eaten from the Tree of Knowledge and makes sure he does not also eat from the Tree of Life to make sure to deny man all true knowledge and all true life.
What is this really?
Who is who?
Indeed, what type of God is God, when he becomes alarmed that humans are coming together and collaborating in their endeavors. His greatest fear: That "there will be nothing too difficult for man to accomplish"?
How much like Gallo is he at Babel, where he makes sure humanity is separated and neutralized through alienation and ignorance?
The victor will always present himself as just, and the deposed will always be presented fallen.
So does it really matter who claims to be God and who is proclaimed to be the Devil.
You will forgive my ‘blasphemy’ if I say to judging any entity by its acts instead of its label.
THE DEVIL IN DISGUISE
The concept of the Devil always presenting himself as someone else.
But the devil cannot reveal his true self to the inhabitants of his ‘creation.’ First of all because it is an usurpation and a fraud, and second because he is the cause of it.
So Gallo, through his many releases of the unfortunate humans, always presents himself as someone else. Someone good, someone they can trust…like Payton. But the Devil’s purpose is not really to cause someone to fall (he has caused that already), but to amuse himself, and to make sure his creation continues under his control.
Somewhat a more complex view of the Devil, isn’t it?
What would an enthroned master teach to his fallen slaves?
'Turn the other cheek'?
‘The meek shall inherit the earth’?
‘Give Caesar what is onto Caesar’?
‘Slaves, be loyal to your master’?
Or how about this masterpiece:
"Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment." (Romans 13:1)
Makes you think, doesn't it.
Feel any divine blessing after reading that?
Or how about a philosophy of pacific acceptance and resignation like self-sacrificial Christianity or the resigned deprivation of India's caste system?
How about this one:
Believe exactly what you are told, do not deviate from it in any way shape or form, or you will be subjected to eternal torture.
In so many words, this is the mantra of most religions.
It isn’t clear what Gallo attempted to teach to those whom he released, but one thing is absolutely clear: there is only one master and one absolute source of all authority and power - Gallo.
And for humanity there are only three commandments:
1) Eat each other
2) Do and believe exactly what your are told
3) Never truly come together in any way shape or form.
Gallo plays with the destiny of those he releases rather than speak to them directly or reveal anything of value to them.
The concept of religious myth presenting only a vague reference to reality.
Who is to say that Gallo did not release Leland at one time or another to play with him and finally approve with amusement of Leland’s final transformation into a well-off, indifferent cannibal priest?
Leland is indeed a special case.
Gallo seems to have revealed to him more than any other on the Elysium: the true story of how it all began, which Leyland preaches with a form religious fervor inside a form of ‘cathedral.’ He even uses the original end-transmission from Earth as a form of church organ.
Leland is the archetype of our priesthood.
Gallo might have perhaps revealed the story to Leyland as a sort of existential self-affirming and confession.
But it is only half the story, told in a veiled and occult narrative. The real culprit is not even identified by name.
How many Leylands do we have in our cathedrals telling us only a vague and veiled reflection of what has really happened?
When Leyland arrives onto the bridge of the Elysium, indeed, its almost as if he and Gallo had known each other before. Gallo seems to become frustrated at Leyland’s unplanned appearance and kills him (the Devil God likes everything to happen his way and hates surprises (loss of control).
THE DEVIL AS INSANE
The concept of the devil being hopelessly insane.
The image of Gallo is the image of insanity. He is obviously hopelessly demented, absolutely self-absorbed, and ultimately, self-destructive, left at the controls of creation by a moment of carelessness and a set of unexpected coincidences.
TO THE DEVIL, WHAT HE DOES MAKES PERFECT SENSE
The Devil following his own unmistakable logic.
To Gallo, what he does makes perfect sense. Liberated from any bond of morality, responsibility, accountability or conscience, he sees himself and his creation – the sabotaged Elysium – as one.
Gallo is an insane god.
He does as he pleases and what he pleases becomes creation.
‘Life eats life, and what remains is what is,’ he says.
By that same token, his proclamation seems to support the notion that what exists is the result of the strong and the cunning. Everything else is swept away and meaningless. That is the way of nature and the universe. That is what Gallo sees.
How many times do we hear this same philosophy from the mouthes of deluded evolutionists, racists and ghetto dwellers?
THE DEVIL IS NOT ALL POWERFUL
The concept of the Devil, not as all powerful, but simply as one of the Gods who has found himself at the controls.
The devil is rather weak and vulnerable, as Gallo demonstrates. He is just a human being fooling a ship full of other human beings (or what’s left of human beings) into following his map of existence.
The main mantra is ‘Do, don’t think.’
Ever hear the expression "You think too much?"
As such, Gallo is not a revealed god. He is not to be worshipped, or even known, but instead, a god happy to be at the controls of existence.
As such, he is an occult and all-powerful god.
Isn’t our own God an occult being we know little or nothing about?
Isn't our own God an occult God?
The concept of Hell as a warehouse not of the evil ones, but of the good and the true.
Elysium is the ancient Greek paradise reserved for the good and the just. The very name of the ship is a cruel mockery of the crew’s destiny.
The Elysium is no paradise.
The good, the just and the brave are literally clobbered, ridiculed, destroyed and forced to live in deprivation, while the corrupt rise to the top of the food chain.
In the film, Elysium is not the paradise of the brave and the just, it is simply their warehouse.
It is the place where they are trapped by the Devil simply because they are a possible danger to him.
The concept of the Devil tempting man.
Gallo’s appeal to Bower at the end of the movie represents the temptation of the devil. We see the archetype within the Bible during Eve’s temptation by the serpent, Christ’s temptation by Satan and in Star Wars, by Vader’s appeal for Luke to join ‘the dark side.’
The Devil actually believes in what he is talking about.
Gallo represents surrendering to Pandorum (a type of space insanity) as a form of liberation, a total freedom from the bonding chains of morality, restriction, limitation or parameters. The ‘sky is the limit’ or ‘remove your parameters’ or ‘you can do anything you set your mind to’ as they say.
And Bower is tempted. He feels the ‘power’ of the insanity. Hasn’t it, after all, given Gallo absolute power?
"I am offering you the kingdom" says Gallo.
How similar to the Devil offering the world to Christ.
Wasn’t Christ (like Bower) ‘released’ here, meandering here and there in a supposed nebulous ‘mission’ he didn't even seem to understand completely - a cruel set up by the impish god?
Wasn’t Jesus abandoned at the end, crying out “father why hast thou forsaken me?”
Just like when Gallo abandons the clueless Bower in the bowels of his creation?
Who was Jesus's god?
Gallo playing another one of his 'games' perhaps?
EVIL AS NATURE
The concept of the false idea of nature as brutal and hard.
During the temptation of Bower, Gallo uses the old justification of nature as brutal. “life eats life” he says. How many times have we heard evil being justified as blunt reality...or the lesser evil...or that might makes right...or that the future belongs to the strong?
The concept of a purposefully divided and alienated humanity.
The humans aboard the Elysium are themselves hopelessly alienated from each other. The humans Bower runs into are fearful, distrustful, parasitical or exploitative, several speak undecipherable languages.
One thing is sure, the humans are lone wolves, who exist in absolute alienation from each other. They do not trust each other, they cannot work together, many cannot even speak to each other.
How similar is that to this world we live in?
Aren’t we kept in a form of social, cultural, linguistic, religious isolation, down to our lowest denominator?
How did this come about?
Is it because Gallo releases only one human at a time (like he did with Bower), so that they and their descendants (like Manh) grow up depending only on themselves? Remember – Gallo has the luxury of waiting entire decades between each release.
The ‘creator’ has made sure man exists one apart from the other, separated by fear, distrust, predatory instincts and rage.
In the case of the hunters, they are no longer even members of the same species, and are its predators - the demons at the mindless service of 'the devil'?
One can see the method to Gallo’s madness. He keeps the inhabitants of his creation separated by race, language, fear and aggression, so that they can never come together to do much of anything.
Read the story of the Tower of Babel.
Was it really God or the usurper of the Trinity who created Babel amongst us?
THE OCCULT - SECRETS THAT ARE KEPT FROM US
The concept of occult worlds and occult reality.
The term ‘occult’ means that which has been hidden or which has been cut off from our reality. I can think of no better term. What we see and know is not all there is. A large chunk of it has been hidden from sight, just like with the inhabitants of the Elysium.
The occult has been occluded for a reason, good or bad.
Is it to avoid having to face nightmares like Pandorum? Or has it been made so to keep us impotent subjects of a self-absorbed monomaniacal god?
I don’t know the answer, but the fact that the occult is occult for a reason is enough to scare me.
The concept of too much knowledge leading to insanity.
The very name seems to suggest Pandora, who opened up the forbidden box, and let all sorts of evil out onto the world.
Is it really an insanity, or a revelation which is so awesome and powerful that it drives the limited minds of the revealed insane? The nature of Pandorum is always left a mystery, presumably because the humans themselves don’t really understand what it is.
Could Pandorum be simply the universe forcing its way into the mind of a perceptive recipient, driving him totally insane?
Upon perceiving the awesomeness of the universe, and, perhaps its oneness, does the little mind of he perceiver begin to think he is the universe?
Whatever the case may be, the end-symptoms of Pandorum seem to be a form of lucid insanity – the individual victim become a perfected form of sociopath.
How many of these are up there at the controls of our society even as you read this? What did they get revealed to them?
If anything, the disease called ‘Pandorum’ is simply a warning to us, innocent and naive space-faring race that we are (on our spaceship Earth), that we know little of what’s out there and that we’d better be very careful where we step.
THE CROSSING OVER
The concept of the frightfulness of taking that first step into occult reality.
The jettisoning into the void is one of the scariest endings one can imagine. Indeed, it was the ending for many aboard a previous expedition. But near the end of the film, it becomes the means to reach paradise.
What a powerful symbol for crossing-over into the occult!
It is frightening because it is unknown. How much secure and safer is it to remain aboard the Elysium than to jettison yourself into an unknown void?
Of course, the occult secret is there is no deep space, but an ocean, and on the surface of the ocean, paradise, but no one has gone there until Bower breaks the pattern.
I don’t pretend to know what the occult is. But penetrating it is bound to be scary, just like jettisoning into the void from within the bowels of the Elysium.
Just like following the directions to one occult experience or another, whether it be accepting Christ, going into a drug-induced trance, participating in a sweat-lodge, summoning entities, etc, penetrating the occult is scary and unnerving.
Sometimes, just getting to the bottom of the truth is scary.
How many of us really dare to jettison into the void?
And, for that matter, what really lies on the other side?
AWARENESS SO CLOSE YET SO FAR
The concept of awareness as a world-changing factor.
The inhabitants of the Elysium are only a few thousand meters from paradise, yet they are totally unaware of it.
How well this represents the occult.
How close this resembles the trance of religious masters who see the glimpse of something we can’t imagine? Life is an illusion, they say. You are a lot more than this, they say. We are at the bottom rung of the universe, they say.
Who’s to say they aren't right?
It sure looks like the bottom rung from where I am sitting.
WE ARE GODS, WE JUST DON’T KNOW IT
The concept of humanity as fallen gods.
The film presents a curious opposite view of creation. Instead of it being the Devil who is cast down from heaven by God, it is the Gods who are cast down from Heaven by the Devil…who then proclaims himself to be God. Then, he proclaims the down-casted Gods mortals, groveling for their very existence.
Nobody knows the better, do they?
Is humanity a race of cast-down gods, ruled by one of their own, who exalts himself above all simply because he has gotten at the controls?
The concept of the flood as doing away with an unloved creation.
It is obvious that what threatens to end the existence of sabotaged Elysium and all therein is a giant flood.
The man-god in charge, Gallo, in fact, puts all the pieces in place for it to happen. Did he plan it that way? Certainly he seems not too perturbed that his entire creation is about to be destroyed.
It is simply god allowing his unloved and abused creation to be destroyed.
The monomaniacal self-absorbed God is a total sociopath. He doesn't care for the very creation he himself created, and is willing to destroy it at the drop of a hat.
Read the story of the Flood
GOD ESCAPING HIS OWN CREATION
The concept of God bailing out of his own creation or destroying it at a whim.
It is obvious that Gallo, the god-man, has created a living hell, which he does not even really care for one way or another.
Everything is a whim.
As the end of his world seemingly approaches, he begins to consider abandoning his own creation.
Young Gallo’s advice (actually Gallo talking to himself) about jettisoning from the ship is not insanity, but a serious consideration as he begins to suspect Bower might not shut down the reactor and that the ship is doomed – the Devil is considering abandoning his doomed creation without a whim, just like God abandoning his 'creation' at the time of the Flood.
IS THE ELYSIUM EARTH?
How similar is the meaningless existence we are offered here on Earth to the existence of the hunters and the derelict humans on the Elysium.
The truth is we don’t have much of purpose here except to survive, compete, breed and die, oh, and go along with one of the occasional brutal and demented games called wars and genocides (Gallo having fun?).
How similar to the inhabitants of the Elysium we are.
Did the inhabitants of Earth ever have a higher mission (seriously - did we ever have a higher mission?), like the crew of the Elysium did?
Isn’t Earth itself a form of spaceship traveling through space with its unfortunate crew, totally ignorant of its original goal or mission, stagnant, sabotaged and seemingly at the hands of a mad ‘god’?
How much like the gods are we ourselves?
Does not the Bible say God made man in his own image?
Wasn’t God’s prime directive to Adam and Eve that they never eat from the Tree of Knowledge?
The order is to remain in ignorance in perpetuity. A directive that might very well have come straight from Gallo.
Of course, in any conflict, it is the winning side that assumes the mantle of righteousness, and the losing side who is labeled as evil.
In other words, the winner will always be the god, and the loser will always be the devil.
So we read with a bit of suspicion when we see the ‘devil’ say to Eve:
“God knows in fact that on the day you eat it (from the Tree of Knowledge) your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods.”
Isn’t 'the devil’ in this instance acting and sounding more like a Bower than Gallo?
Isn’t he seeking the actual liberation of mankind?
And in the end, isn’t God acting more like Gallo than any form of righteous entity?
Once ‘god’ finds out that man has eaten from the Tree of Knowledge, he becomes alarmed and frightened.
Really, the God creator of the universe frightened?
If what the ‘devil’ said was a lie, why is ‘God’ frightened?
Indeed, ‘God’ states (apparently talking to himself like Gallo):
“See, the man has become like one of us, with his knowledge of good and evil. He must not be allowed to stretch his hand out next and pick from the tree of life…and live forever” (Geneseis3:22)
Is this a kind and caring god, or is it a Gallo, seeking to cover up the truth about the Elysium and keep fellow crewmembers from learning the truth -that they are all Gods just like him?
Let me quote ‘god’ again at the construction of the Tower of Babel, when he sees men come together and collaborate in his endeavors.
Yes, the ‘god’ of the entire universe becomes frightened again, and exclaims
“There will be nothing too hard for them to do.”
Accordingly, he proceeds to separate and alienate humanity, much like Gallo has done in the Elysium with his human victims.
Oh yes, if the human population of the Elysium ever came together, who knows what havoc they might create aboard Gallo’s twisted creation?
The scene where Gallo argues with himself is one of the most disturbing in the film.
How many times do we see god arguing with himself in the Bible? Who is he talking to?
Or is he pretending to talking to the Trinity he himself murdered?
The purpose of this essay is not to tell say God is the Devil or the Devil is God, but to point out a possibility of a lie and an occultation in our existence, and the reason for that lie and that occultation.
I am not going to say I know exactly what is, but I will say things smell very fishy now and then.
Regardless of what the truth may be, of one thing I am pretty sure: humanity is a fallen race with a lot of latent potential, which has been put in that condition (fallen)probably more by design than by accident.
The ‘Gallo’ entity or sabotaged reality (whatever that may be) probably wants to keep it that way.
We use 10% of our brains.
Most of our DNA is ‘useless,’ and, according to our bright scientists, serves no purpose at all.
90% of humanity lives in abject poverty and deprivation.
Hey, that's virtually all of us.
There goes that fishy smell again.
Is reality our reality or the reality we experience really a manufactured reality put together by the Gallo of this planet?
Are we living reality or Gallo’s reality?
Are we going somewhere or are we simply existing in Gallo’s insane manufactured version of the world?
Our mission, our reality, our purpose has been sabotaged.
Our World (the Elysium) has been sabotaged.
Gallo is at the controls.
All we are left with is the twisted reality of an insane and isolated existence, vague twisted explanations of the past and glimpses, dreams, insights really of a future that was supposed to be...
...and the feeling or idea that we can somehow reach the true 'paradise' we were destined for.
