I finally got around to watching the first three films of the Hunger Games...just recently.
I promised myself I would not read or watch this “franchise” because the week the very first book came out I discovered it was a piece of teen fiction put out by Scholastic (a children’s publisher) which celebrated the torture and murder of children.
Let’s review the facts again.
A children’s book which celebrates the torture and murder of children?
What’s up Scholastic, trying to twist and pervert the little ones?
Whatever the case may be, my button has always been the murder of children on film....or otherwise.
I see it, I turn it off, or leave the theater, throw the book in the garbage, etc.
I saw it for the first time in a movie called ‘The Lord of the Flies’ (the first version)...and when I saw that was the way things were going I turned off the TV.
I walked out of a what looked like pretty interesting film with Kurt Russell called ‘The Soldier’ and later crime drama with Angelina Jolie called ‘The Changeling’ for the same reason.
And its not just me.
There is (still) a social taboo, even in the film industry (for now) against showing children being graphically killed on screen.
In other words our society in general is not ready to accept it.
The killing of children on film therefore always occurs off screen.
How curious then that the entire main premise of ‘The Hunger Games’ is the the murder of children...in a film aimed at a child audience.
Like I said, I was disturbed by it all and swore not to have anything to do with this obviously evil franchise.
But...alas...as I have stated...I have recently viewed all three films and might later read the book.
No moralistic posturing here.
There were several reasons:
1) I love science fiction
2) I love distopian films
3) There was a dearth of viewing material to watch on my DVD player
and, more importantly
4) I began suspecting that Hunger Games contained predictive programming involving Illuminati plans...and that I would remain ignorant of these unless I watched it.
In that I was right.
I can’t say I enjoyed the film...in fact, watching it was a depressing experience...and the film seemed rather stupid at times.
The deaths of children happened, but were kept off the screen
Despite that, the initial scene of the ‘Cornucopia’ not only bothered me, but depressed and haunted me for a long time afterwards.
What my ‘movie-logic’ instinct particularly disliked was the fact of frightened little twelve-year olds were being thrown into an arena against big, murderous, muscled, and trained 18-year-olds.
These little kids didn’t have a chance!
Where was the sportsmanship?
Then I began to analyze the premise of the ritual.
The unfortunate little kids going to the ‘Hunger Games’ were chosen at random because they used government food coupons which put them inside a lottery for the games.
The whole point was not sportsmanship or entertainment, but (as the movie puts it) Tribute.
The kids sent to kill each other in the games are ‘Tribute’ to the Government from the ‘regions’ under its control.
In this case the ‘Tribute’ consisted of underage minors - children - sent to be sacrificed on the altar of the Hunger Games.
Human Sacrifice...as Tribute.
What then is ‘Tribute’ and what is it’s nature?
The dictionary defines tribute as:
"a stated sum or other valuable consideration paid by one sovereign or state to another in acknowledgment of subjugation”
Tribute is a symbolic payment or action which demonstrates subjugation and servitude to an over-power by a lesser power.
The act of giving tribute has the purpose of PROVING that the giver is a subject to the receiver.
The ancient Persian Emperors asked for the simple tribute of ‘earth and water’ from the territory swearing allegiance to the Persian Empire (you might remember this scene in the movie ‘300’) given in the presence of the subject king and his nobles to Persian noble witnesses.
What a nice inexpensive ritual, right?
Well, it got a bit more expensive afterwards...
...when the subject kings were scheduled to surrender yearly portions of their wealth to the Persian treasury and send regular detachments of their troops to fight within the Persian Army.
But the tribute ritual served its purpose.
The Romans required that kings kneel before the statue of the Roman Emperor...who was worshiped as a god.
The extensive monetary tributes followed in turn.
As it happens, this particular ritual led to severe problems with Jews and Christians who frequently refused to do this because they believed it would damn them before God.
...the recalcitrants were themselves turned into ‘tribute’ by either becoming sacrifices to the Colosseum or massacred in the name of Mars.
The symbolic act which proves subjection to a greater authority.
Modern society STILL has its requirements of ‘tribute.’
If I have learned anything in studying the Illuminati and history is that there are constants which hold true century after century...millennia after millennia in society after society and civilization after civilization.
YOU are subject to TRIBUTE...believe it or not.
The equation has never changed.
Remember - a tribute is a symbolic act which PROVES your subjection to the system.
It does not have to be monetary.
Society still extracts its Tribute from its subjects today.
When you submit to tribute, it puts the mind of the masters at ease because it proves that the population are subjected and compliant.
It is a reassurance of servitude and subjection.
The ancient Carthaginians and Phoenicians sacrificed their children to the god Moloch (also called Baal or Lord).
The willingness of the population to shout HELL NO! to this abomination proved they were compliant subjects of the system.
The Romans made human sacrifice fun! Most of the Roman population shouted its approval at the entertaining executions of the arena.
The ancient Druids carried out fiery sacrifices of nobles and children to their gods while the compliant population watched.
In the Middle Ages, public burnings (sacrifices) of ‘witches’ (psychic or intelligent individuals) and heretics (Christians whose belief differed slightly from Church dogma) was happily approved and attended by the local population.
Other ‘tributes’ which were popular at the time was the right of local ‘lords’ to get first dibs on peasant brides the day before they got married.
Add to this the right of life or death over every peasant, denial of the right of private property, the surrender of 60% of the crops (income) to the lord and the royal right to ‘impress’ (enslave) peasants for war...and you have a most perfect system of tribute.
Symbolic acts of fealty and subjection.
As long as the population complies unquestioningly and without protest to these acts of subjection, the oligarchy is reassured of its control.
THIS is why any variance, complaint or hesitation to comply with TRIBUTE is treated so HARSHLY by the authorities.
We’ve got some strange tributes ourselves which, unbeknownst to most of the population are part of the tribute which our society demands as proof of our subjection.
Let’s take a look at some of them, shall we?
The most basic type of tribute is the total surrender of all your legal property to an authority.
The right to own private property has been a basic right since the beginning of civilization.
You can’t be more subjected and can’t offer much greater tribute than the surrender of your property...as all the others watch...and accept it as right and just.
Let’s begin with the most petty and most informal of tributes - the authority of your local Home Owner’s Association over your house.
It’s gotten slightly better, but HOAs used to (and some still do) have the authority to apply fines and daily penalties to the property owner,and, if those fines are not paid, shut off your water!
The violations might consist of such paltry infractions as not mowing your lawn, painting your house the wrong color, owning a pet, fixing your car in your garage or having weekly gatherings.
Let these penalties sit a few more months and the HOA claims your house and auctions it off to pay off all those accumulated fines and penalties.
If that is not a flat-out violation of property rights, I don’t know what is!
The HOA system is training for tyranny.
The most petty, power-hungry, aggressively corrupt neighborhood residents become members and quickly find situations in which they can flex their association muscles on the unfortunate home owners.
Violate the city code and your house is declared uninhabitable...and confiscated or demolished.
You don’t have to do much to get into this doo doo.
If you Just possibly own a goat, fail to maintain your yards, have too many people living there, let the paint job peel, have too many possessions (hoarding), park vehicles in your back yard, have too big a tree, have too high a wall, leave parts of your house in disrepair, raise animals, have smells, have your home disconnected from the power grid (by using solar), or sell stuff from your home...then you might be a candidate for serious city code violations.
All that is enough to declare your home to be ‘blight’ or even be declared inhabitable...in which case the authorities will ‘seize’ our property, auction it, tear it down, or do whatever else they want with it.
Your title, paid property taxes and paid mortgage be damned.
This guy had his house demolished and his property seized for no reason other than not being able to inhabit the thing on a regular basis!
Yes indeed, the hunger for power runs deep in our veins, starting with your local city council.
And the people stand idly by and accept it
The theory is you own your property until your local city council decides you don’t...and that your city council does!
How’s that for god-like power?
Two more requirements are that the confiscation be for the ‘public good’ and that you be duly compensated for your property
Can you name ONE law, regulation, executive order or war that was not created for ‘the public good’?
I didn’t think so.
Do you really think you will be given blue-book price for your property?
I haven’t seen it happen yet.
What I have seen are entire square miles of productive mom and pop trade stores plowed under to make way for a glorified strip mall called Tempe Marketplace.
Also, I have seen miles of humble mom and pop businesses on Apache Avenue raised to the ground to make way for mile after mile of section -8 (government subsidized housing) cinder block structures which resemble a prison.
(sounds like a great urban development scheme...but I don’t even want to think what Tempe, AZ will look like after Tempe Market Place collapses)
It’s gotten to the point where just having a Walmart move into your neighborhood is good enough reason to confiscate, underpay and vanquish people who have struggles to build a business and clientèle over decades.
Not only that, but the truth is this forced type of relocation basically ENDS the dislocated business due to loss of clientèle (nobody in the controlled media mentions this fact).
As if that weren’t enough, did you know Walmart gets PAID by your own city council to move into your city?
Thought it was the other way around?
Obviously, you don’t under stand the ways of tribute.
Walmart not only demands free infrastructure, but also a payment to the tune of millions of dollars for the ‘honor’ of having mom and pop stores
dislocated and the remainder shut down through unfair competition.
All I can say to the towns which do this is PRAY that the CEOs doesn’t one day decide to close down your local Walmart...because if they do what you will have left will be a GHOST TOWN!
And the people stand idly by for this rendition.
This one’s as old as Babylon.
It’s main purpose (unknown to the sheep) is to keep the little people from getting wealthy.
It’s so old even the Founding Fathers thought it was a good idea and planned to run the government off of it.
The truth is that it is an unfair tax simply because property does not necessarily produce wealth...in fact, it is frequently a liability and COSTS wealth.
Yet under this Illuminati logic system property represents your wealth and your ability to pay.
The child-like logic (justification) of this tax is that if you have a large property, you must have a lot of money, and vice versa.
Not included in this logic is that you might have inherited your large property or spent your whole life earning and saving money in order to get it, but that doesn’t matter.
You don’t pay...the state confiscates your property....rather quickly I might add!
In fact, some states have entire departments standing by to move on the property of forgetful oldsters and confiscate their property the minute they fall behind on their yearly property tax payments.
Many have referred to Property Tax as something that proves you don’t really own your property....the state does.
Also called a ‘death tax.’
And yes, this one is as old as Babylon as well.
In fact, there are Sumerian cuneiform tablets complaining about this one (and Sumeria is OLDER than Babylon).
The Sumerian account has the tax collector standing right there at the funeral to collect on this tax on the sons’ inheritance the moment the corpse of the father is buried.
History and tradition aside, this is one of the most bizarre and unnatural taxes ever conceived.
It simply puts a penalty on accumulating wealth and passing it on to your spouse or children - something very natural - and frequently the tax is unnaturally heavy - up to 50%!
There is the constant story of the wife or children inheriting a factory, only to be forced to sell it in order to pay the Inheritance Tax.
The elite have good enough reason to fear the accumulation of wealth by the peasants - that is how they became the elite!
In other words, the Inheritance Tax is a mechanism to prevent the accumulation of wealth (that is something only the Elite are allowed to do), and as such is the ultimate tribute displaying how little control you and your family have over your own wealth.
Brief review so far:
If you own property, you let an authority (a HOA) tell you how to run it... obey the Codes set by the State for its upkeep...pay the taxes for the mere right to own it...and surrender half of it upon your death...or have all of your property confiscated.
Doesn’t that just make you feel all warm and Peasant-like inside?
CORPORATE TAX AND SUBSIDIES
The difference between a peasant and the King is the King pays no taxes - the peasants do.
As progress steadily from a capitalistic and democratic system towards a Feudal kingdom, it comes as no surprise that the people on top are beginning to resemble kings.
Corporations, for example.
Legally a corporation is a ‘person’ before the law.
A living, breathing entity - that’s why when corporate decision makers make decisions that get people KILLED (like selling dangerous medications) it is the corporation that gets sued, not the decision makers.
Which brings me to a curious legal point:
Has the death penalty ever been pronounced over a corporation?
How about a prison sentence?
Didn’t think so.
That’s only happens to ‘persons’ like us.
So, back to royalty.
The top 50 Corporations in this country PAY NO TAXES.
And not only do they NOT pay taxes...but In fact GET government subsidies (tribute from the peasants) because...well...they are who they are!
And the corporate executive who run these corporations pay no taxes either...yet get paid more than the Queen of England.
We are talking royal entitlements....er....I mean salaries of tens of millions.
Now I am sure these are highly capable, talented and gifted people...but what type of talent and skill entitles you to $22 million per year, like John Stumpf, CEO of Wells Fargo gets.
Is John Stumpf really THREE HUNDRED TIMES more talented than an electrical engineer?
Is his IQ 300 times higher than the typical American?
Does he make the company 300 times more money than an accountant would?
I don’t think so.
And neither do I think so of Joshua Sapan of AMC Networks ($40 million per year)...
...nor of Satya Nadella of Microsoft Corporation ($80 million per year)...
...nor David Zaslav of Discovery Communications ($156 million per year).
These people don’t make these obscene amounts of money because they are particularly talented, they make them because they have the right connections and represent the right people (mostly at the international bank level).
And yes, they pay no taxes...because they are our royalty - the princes of the capitalist world.
In fact, it is a great irony that most of the companies who these CEOs manage are LOSING money...but that doesn’t stop them from getting multi-million dollar BONUSES every year.
So what CAN you call a group of people who pay no taxes yet receive millions every year while the peasants CHEER?
And the millions that the corporate managers receive tax free, most of it from government contracts, government subsidies and government welfare...paid for by taxes from the peasants?
What better name for it than...Tribute.
Again: tribute is something that is required of you as a symbolic act of subjection...and punished severely if refused.
A major tribute that must be surrendered is your meek acceptance of violations of your privacy.
One is consistently asked at stores for your ‘preferred customer’ (i.e. registered and tracked person) card and your polite refusal to get one is met with an attitude reserved for suspicious criminal behavior.
Not only that, but, you are PUNISHED by being forced to pay HIGHER prices for the items you buy. I call this a privacy tax.
The traffic stop, an everyday surrender of tribute to the authorities demonstrates that you are a law abiding citizen willing to sit under the imposing criticism of authority. Refuse to stop and the punishment might well be death. Complain and you must pay a arbitrary tax bases on the cop’s opinion. Be disrespectful and you might trigger an extreme punishment.
These types of tributes on the road have expanded to roadblocks, where you must know stop and be questioned...and answer if you are a US citizen...where are you going and your business there. Refusal to respond to these random and basic violations of privacy might result (as with all tribute)
with extreme and drastic (not to mention brutal) consequences.
An extreme type of tribute must be rendered at the Airport in order for you to enjoy the PRIVILEGE of traveling. You must be questioned, searched, touched and processed like a common criminal. In addition, you must raise up your arms and surrender before being stripped of all your clothing figuratively through X-rays photography which produce a NUDE photo of you surrendering tribute with your arms raised. If you refuse, you must render tribute in the form of having your genitals squeezed by a uniformed enforcer.
As with any tribute, refusal results in drastic action - you can’t travel and must leave the airport immediately. Refuse to do this and the consequences can get extreme (as with the woman they tied to a chair and suffocated to death right here in Sky Harbor Airport).
A further type of privacy tribute is COMPLIANCE recording of your communication. When the American people have officially been told that ALL their email and phone conversations are recorded for perpetuity (through the Snowden releases) and don’t rise up in protest, that is tribute. It is an acceptance of subjection to the state and the fact that what they say and write is no longer theirs.
Finally, monuments to the tribute of sacrificed privacy are line our very streets in the form of cameras. That they have not been spray painted or torn down is a monument to our zoo-like subjection. It’s gotten to the point where people (either through shame, embarrassment, dread or straight out double-think) are denying that these cameras even exist.
SURRENDER OF OPINION
One of the most basic tributes of subjection is the surrender of the freedom of speech. The population’s surrender to Political Correctness has reached the extreme as words like ‘Homosexual’ ‘Jew’ ‘Black’ ‘Brown Bag’ ‘Mexicans’ have become prohibited. Along with this are the enforcement of business-destroying fines for refusal to serve certain people (like Gays, Transexuals or any racial group).
Meanwhile, certain forms of criticism against Obama, or denying Global Warming and the Holocaust and stating that Government or the United Nations is corrupt...much less any speculation on any conspiracy theory is enough to bring heat on you...if not incarceration.
A family bakery was shut down through massive public fines after they refused to bake a cake for a homosexual marriage.
Europeans are regularly INCARCERATED for affirming that the numbers of the Holocaust might be off by a few fractions.
My aunt was INCARCERATED in a MENTAL ASYLUM in New York City for saying the NYPD was ‘corrupt.’
People who espouse government conspiracies are regularly committed to mental institutions as insane.
The American public has submitted to the tribute of having their tongues figuratively cut off as they not only watch what they say...but ENFORCE this self-censorship on others.
I am frequently given the crazy-person look by my fellow Americans as I point to a camera that is obviously THERE. No matter, the mere fact that I am expressing alarm is enough to judge me potentially insane.
We are indeed a population which surrenders tribute to the powers above.
You cant use the water. You can’t use the land. You can’t use your own property. Even rainwater is proclaimed to be the property of the almighty government and, in certain states, anyone collecting rainwater is fined, arrested or imprisoned.
Tribute is granted to the corporate state in the way of slaughtering live-stock which doesn’t ‘look right,’ culling entire herds during times of ‘epidemic’ and destruction of agricultural product like non-pasteurized milk, and denying ranchers the God-given right to use unused and unoccupied public lands they have been husbanding for decades in order to feed the nation.
You might have noticed your electricity bill has gone up as tribute has been surrendered by way of destroying our coal-run power plants.
Buy this product or else.
The perfect fusion between corporatism and statism is called FASCISM.
What else can you call a government mandate to buy a privately produced corporate product except unconstitutional fascism?
Now, as the nice facade has fallen, the American people have discovered no only that their medical insurance rates have gone up, but that their services have been curtailed and that they will be severly fined if they don’t pay them.
Obamacare is nothing less than tribute to the corporations that control government.
When you can’t confirm the vote and you cant’ reliably count the vote, what you have is a RITUAL, not a democracy.
When your faith is in a digital GOD that tells you what the results are, what you have is a RELIGION, not an election.
We HAVE surrendered our RIGHT to elect our representatives as TRIBUTE to the state...without a whimper.
The process of electronic voting is NOT an democratic electoral process, it is and act of FAITH.
That the people meekly surrender this TRIBUTE every year is PROOF that they are a compliant and subject population who have voluntarily subjected to the state.
Totalitarian societies have always demanded the young as tribute.
In today’s tributary state, you must give your children over to the state in the form of surrendering them to the state for eight hours a day.
This is public education.
Don’t think this is tribute?
Refusing to surrender tribute is something that carries DRASTIC consequences.
Just try to opt out of the education system and see what happens.
Even Home Schooling follows the curriculum, rules and guidelines of the state.
So what happens when you opt out?
Well, the State takes your child!
(talk about the ultimate tribute)
That’s right, the State (CPS) takes your child indefinitely.
Secondary penalties may apply in the form of prison sentences.
All of this is directed by commissar-type enforcers called Truancy Officers.
Understand this: your child...and more particularly the MIND of your child must be submitted to the state for proper indoctrination.
Failure to do so will result in the confiscation of your child by the state, which gives rise to an important legal question:
Since the bringing up of your child is completely in the hands of the State and the State has the right to confiscate your child - doesn’t this mean that the STATE, not you, owns your child?”
Any subject state surrenders slaves to the emperor on a regular basis.
Presently slavery is being introduced back into America.
Did you know that in most High Schools your child is FORCED to preform a certain number of hours of SLAVERY for the state or NOT be allowed to GRADUATE?
It’s called Community Service.
The same Community Service convicted criminals are forced to perform in lieu of a prison sentence.
The most famous blood tribute of our youngsters has been induction as a war slave during times of war.
They used to call this the Draft, but got rid of it in 1973 (with European countries following suit in the 1990‘s).
But the specter of ‘service to the state’ remains with the Obama administration under the guise of ‘obligatory public service’ which the Democrats have been wanting to introduce for the last 15 years.
To top off the return of tributary SLAVES to our country, one must keep in mind the re-surging phenomenon of PRISON slaves.
Judges, Counties and Cities all over the country are introducing the subject of having the prisoner PAY for their incarceration and having them WORK to pay for it.
This basically means you become a debt slave to the state the moment you enter the prison.
i have always believed prisoners should be put to work...and paid half minimum wage...for themselves and their families...not the state.
But the new slave labor program being prepared for our prisons will make them virtual slave property of the government.
YOUR BODY AS TRIBUTE
Already covered have been the surrender of your privacy and your dignity as tribute at airports.
Further confirmations that you DO NOT own your own body comes by way of vaccine laws.
In half the states of the union you DO NOT have jurisdiction over what goes into the body of your child by way of vaccines.
As it so happens, many toxic and even deadly chemical and biological agents have been found in vaccines which cause autism and auto-immune disease in the injected.
No matter, the slaves WILL be injected. Their bodies are tribute.
Parents have had their children CONFISCATED by the State as tribute when they have refused to vaccinate their children and say that they, as parents, have some say over what enters the body of their child.
Like I said, don’t get between the State and its tribute.
Further violations of human dignity stand to be established by way of across-the-board obligatory vaccination laws.
California has led the way be removing all exemptions and basically declaring that the State has authority over the body of all children.
But imagine when (most probably during a manufactured national emergency) the government rules that ALL citizens must be vaccinated.
FEMA training makes it clear that the government is ready to enforce this tribute at the gun point.
But imagine what this type of tribute signifies.
It means you no longer have a very basic human right - the right over your OWN BODY.
Your heard that right.
The very premise universal vaccination laws defines your body as being property of the state and subject to being penetrated and injected with substances from the state.
Now call me a pervert, but I have always seen the hypodermic needle as a form of penis and its forceful use as a form of biological rape.
Ergo the forced use of this injection amounts to forced RAPE of the population.
And why not?
They already have this right over your children, why not gain it over YOU?
YOUR HOME AND YOU
You know that when you live in a place with no privacy...
...which can be confiscated by the state at any moment...
...and in which your children are basically property of the state...
...is a place where the State has right of entry and authority of force at any time!
This is the premise of the SWAT raid which hangs like a Sword of Damocles over the head of any American.
At any time of day or night a SWAT team of either police or Bounty Hunters can kick their way into your home and KILL you.
It doesn’t matter if you are a criminal or not, nor under what circumstances the legal killing of your and your loved ones has taken place...
...it will all be justified as tribute to the state.
There is nothing you can do before, during or after the event.
You don’t have to be a criminal, you don’t have to break the law, you don’t have to bother anyone.
These legal MURDER raids can happen at any time of day or night, and in many cases, the targets are completely innocent of any crime, the premises having been irrupted into be mistake.
Frequently these raids are programmed by the establishment to afflict people who expose or oppose them - a recent incident being the ‘raid’ on the Phoenix Police Chief by private bounty hunters, which the establishment treats as an ‘innocent mistake.’
The real message of all this is:
Your house and everything in it can be taken as tribute to the state at any time by armed enforcers.
The passive acceptance of this barbarity by neighbors, as well as local Police, Mayors and Courts is TRIBUTE to the subjection of humanity.
The very concept that Americans have to go to bed at night with evenva passing thought that their doors can be kicked down and their families murdered by the state...and that they accept this reality...is TRIBUTE enough to the state.
The surrender of your body as tribute through the biological rape of vaccination and body searches at the airport, the giving up of a part of your inheritance to the state as tribute, the forced tribute to the state for the right to keep your property and further tribute for any enhancement to it, a committee demanding tribute in the form of subjection to their dictates over your property, the surrender of your speech as tribute, the force tribute to the corporate state through Obamacare, the tributary acceptance that you and your family can be assaulted and killed in your home by the government at any time of day or night.
How much tribute do we SURRENDER to the state every day?
...much more than you think.
