Don’t Give Your Consent to Slavery – Fight Fascism!

Don’t Give Your Consent to Slavery – Fight Fascism! By: Peter Chamberlin

Normal folks do not want to believe that the human race is dominated by dark forces. But, there is a small group of people who know that it is true, the human race is considered to be livestock, cattle for the real owners of this world, the elite.

Since the day of our creation, mankind has been dominated and shaped by inhuman entities, to behave more like cattle. The shapers themselves know this to be true. They also know that if we are not kept ignorant many of us will one day learn to ask the proper questions, until we finally locate the evidence that proves it is all true. Through diligent research, various people have discovered proof of the machinery that controls America’s economy, its political system, its military, its educational system, its medical system, every facet of life. This knowledge is a direct threat to the elite.

The elite power game is designed to wear the people down, as they move the nation slowly toward a predicted outcome, where the majority becomes exhausted from fighting a losing struggle and completely submits to total elite domination of all resources. When the American masses freely surrender their free will to the dark overlords, in the name of security, the fate of the world will be sealed by this lawless tyranny. Destruction and suffering, such as has never been witnessed by the eyes of man, will be unleashed upon the helpless victim populations of the earth.

Very few people can see this future (no one wants to see it) outside of the elite, who gladly accept it as the price of saving whatever is left of the world for themselves. The masters of humanity count on our blindness and willful ignorance, in order to carry-out their conspiratorial plans. They join in secret organizations, where they are free to openly discuss their schemes amongst their own kind.

The documentation of their plotting is kept locked away from the public in corporate vaults and private libraries. Occasionally, someone on the inside discovers their conscience and leaks word of the devilish plans to the outside world, or maybe they simply slip-up and lose track or control of sequestered documents. In order to deceive us and to stall the day of our realization of the multitude of their crimes against humanity, intensive disinformation is introduced into the webstream, discrediting the truth by impersonating it. We have to be diligent in our research to ascertain the veracity of any documents that we might come across. If their revelations cannot be confirmed by multiple sources, then they must be suspect. The “Pentagon Papers” and “Operation Northwoods” come quickly to mind. Both of these major leaks were later partially corroborated by reports of past deceptive military PSYOPS and CIA covert wars.

Then there are the out of the blue revelations offered by researchers who claim to have obtained inside information, or in the case of former MI6 agent John Coleman, a training manual from the Tavistock Institute (British mind control research). - , Conspirators' Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300 - http://www.barefootsworld.net/tavistok.html Coleman’s research is automatically suspect because of his previous government involvement. But this research on social scientists and psychologists at Tavistock, founded in studies by British “Operational Research” at the end of World War II (on the psycho/social impact of bombing upon civilian populations), provided valuable insight to me on the mechanisms for studying and manipulating human cattle. http://www.mortyscabin.net/modules.php? ... e&sid=1769

Another very insightful document of questionable origin, which seems to corroborate Coleman’s work, entitled, “Silent Weapons for a Quiet War,” (an Operations Research Technical Manual) is alleged to be a document from the highly-secretive elitist Bilderburg Group.” http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/ha ... etwars.htm This document may be legitimate, or it may also be a carefully constructed piece of disinformation. Whatever it is, it opens even more insights into the potential opinions of the elite towards the American sheeple, or anyone not living up to their lofty cruel standards and ideas for forging a global dictatorship:
“The general public refuses to improve its own mentality and its faith in its fellow man. It has become a herd of proliferating barbarians, and, so' to speak, a blight upon the fate of the earth. They do not care enough about economic science to learn why they have not been able to avoid war despite religious morality, and their religious or self-gratifying refusal to deal with earthly problems renders the solution of the earthly problem unreachable by them. It is left to those few who are truly willing to think and survive as the fittest to survive, to solve the problem for themselves as the few who really care.”

....................

“The low class elements of the society must be brought under total control, i.e., must be house-broken, trained, and assigned a yoke and long term social duties from a very early age, before they have an opportunity to question the propriety of the matter...In order to achieve such conformity, the lower class family unit must be disintegrated by a process of increasing preoccupation of the parents and occupationally orphaned children...The quality of education given to the lower class must be of the poorest sort, so that the ... ignorance isolating the inferior class from the superior class is and remains incomprehensible to the inferior class. With such an initial handicap, even bright lower class individuals have little if any hope of extricating themselves from their assigned lot in life. This form of slavery is essential to maintaining some measure of social order, peace, and tranquility for the ruling upper class.”

“Economic engineers...study the behaviour of the economy and the consumer public by carefully selecting a staple commodity such as beef, coffee, gasoline, or sugar and then causing a sudden change or shock in its price or availability, thus kicking everybody's budget and buying habits out of shape...They then observe the shock waves which result by monitoring the changes in advertising, prices, and sales of that and other commodities...The objective of such studies is to acquire know-how to set the public economy into a predictable state of motion or change, even a controlled self-destructive state of motion which will convince the public that certain "expert" people should take control of the money system and reestablish security (rather than liberty and justice) for all. When the subject citizens are rendered unable to control their financial affairs, they of course, become totally enslaved, a source of cheap labor.”

.............


“Keep the public undisciplined and ignorant of basic systems principles on the one hand, while keeping them confused, disorganized, and distracted with matters of no real importance on the other hand.

Disengaging their minds, sabotaging their mental activities, by providing a low quality program of public education in mathematics, logic, systems design, and economics, and by discouraging technical creativity.

Unrelenting emotional affrontations and attacks (mental and emotional rape) by way of a constant barrage of sex, violence, and wars in the media - especially the T.V. and the newspapers.

Shift their thinking from personal needs to highly fabricated outside priorities.

Preclude their interest in and discovery of the silent weapons of social automation technology.

The best approach is to create problems and then offer the solutions.

Keep the public busy, busy, busy, with no time to think; back on the farm with the other animals.”

The elitists’ control over information, made possible by the creation of a global computer network, allowed them to absorb all available data from both voluntary and involuntary sources and incorporate the latest facts into their studies for manipulating the unsuspecting masses. The computer-modeling they developed allowed them to accurately predict the real world effect of certain shocks through computer simulations.

“A silent weapon system operates upon data obtained from a docile public by legal (but not always lawful) force...The number of such forms submitted to the I.R.S. is a useful indicator of public consent, an important factor in strategic decision making...When the government is able to collect tax and seize private property without just compensation, it is an indication that the public is ripe for surrender and is consenting to enslavement and legal encroachment. A good and easily quantified indicator of harvest time is the number of public citizens who pay income tax.”

..................

As time goes on and communication and education improve, the lower class elements of the social labor structure become knowledgeable and envious of the good things that the upper class members have. They also begin to attain a knowledge of energy systems and the ability to enforce their rise through the class structure.
This threatens the sovereignty of the elite.

If this rise of the lower classes can be postponed long enough, the elite can achieve energy dominance. Until such energy dominance is absolutely established, the consent of people to labor and let others handle their affairs must be taken into consideration, since failure to do so could cause the people to interfere in the final transfer of energy sources to the control of the elite.

It is essential to recognize that at this time, public consent is still an essential key to the release of energy in the process of economic amplification.”

.........


“For the majority of the population real wages have stagnated or declined for the past 30 years, there's been growth but it's going to the wealthy and into very few pockets, benefits which were never really great have declined, work hours have greatly increased and there isn't really much to show for it other than staying afloat.”

“The elite strategy for managing the electorate is to ignore the will of the people as...interpret[ed] through polling data?... We have models right in front of us. Like pick, say, Bolivia, the poorest county in South America. They had a democratic election a couple of years ago that you can't even dream about in the US. It's kind of interesting it's not discussed [in our press]...A large majority of the population became organised and active for the first time in history and elected someone from their own ranks on crucial issues that everyone knew about – control of resource, cultural rights, issues of justice, you know, really serious issues...

A couple of years before this they managed to drive Bechtel and the World Bank out of the country when they were trying to privatise the war. It was a pretty harsh struggle... Well, they reached a point where they finally could manifest this through the electoral system - they didn't have to change the electoral laws, they had to change the way the public acts... Actually if we look at the poorest country in the hemisphere – Haiti - the same thing happened in 1990. You know, if peasants in Bolivia and Haiti can do this, it's ridiculous to say we can't.”
The only thing that will save us and the world from the great plundering that is planned for us is another revolution, a revolution of free will. Everyone must stop surrendering their will to the dishonest men and women who claim to represent us. We must reclaim our fading and lost heritage.


"To oppose the policies of a government does not mean you are against the country or the people that the government supposedly represents. Such opposition should be called what it really is: democracy, or democratic dissent, or having a critical perspective about what your leaders are doing. Either we have the right to democratic dissent and criticism of these policies or we all lie down and let the leader, the Fuhrer, do what is best, while we follow uncritically, and obey whatever he commands. That's just what the Germans did with Hitler, and look where it got them.” Michael Parenti, author. http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Fascism/Fascism.html

Americans can stop the overlords from carrying-out the final step for ending human freedom, expanding their global war into Iran, escalating it beyond the nuclear threshold. Advancement of their geopolitical plan through the use of terrorism by our own government and through their proxies in foreign intelligence services remains the immoral center of their unholy schemes. We stop this hypocrisy by making this common knowledge.

Revelations of “silent weapons” being used in a secret war against them and their families will go a long way towards opening many eyes and convincing people to resist. What is needed is massive resistance, on a scale not seen in this country for a very long time. People have to be convinced to resist cooperating with government and private efforts to collect personal data and conform with illegal mandates. Organize to stop the war, to end the illegal progressive tax system, the submission to intrusive government measures. In the end, we must bring down the corrupt Federal Reserve System.

Soldiers must refuse to lay down their freedom and their lives for the war machine. Everyone must stop playing along with our farcical electoral system. Don’t vote on November 6, send them a static-filled signal of our own.

DON’T VOTE, DON’T WORK. General Strike.

DON’T VOTE, DON’T WORK! General Strike.

DON’T VOTE, DON’T WORK! General Strike.

Pentagon Wants Packs Of Robots to Hunt Down 'Non- cooperative Humans'

'The Pentagon has put out a request to contractors to develop teams of robots that can search for, detect and track “non-cooperative” humans in “pursuit/evasion scenarios”. The request, which can be read on the Department of Defense Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program website here, calls for a “Multi-Robot Pursuit System” to be operated by one person.'

Read more...

http://www.prisonplanet.com/pentagon-wants-packs-of-robots-to-detect-n on-cooperative-humans.html

The proposal describes the need to

“…develop a software/hardware suit that would enable a multi-robot team, together with a human operator, to search for and detect a non-cooperative human subject.

The main research task will involve determining the movements of the robot team through the environment to maximize the opportunity to find the subject, while minimizing the chances of missing the subject. If the operator is an active member of the search team, the software should minimize the chance that the operator may encounter the subject.”

It is seemingly important to the Pentagon that the operator should not have to come into contact with the person being chased down by the machines.

The description continues:

“The software should maintain awareness of line-of-sight, as well as communication and sensor limits. It will be necessary to determine an appropriate sensor suite that can reliably detect human presence and is suitable for implementation on small robotic platforms.”


Paul Marks at The New Scientist points out that given the propensity to adapt this kind of military style technology for domestic purposes such as crowd control, the proposal is somewhat concerning.

“…how long before we see packs of droids hunting down pesky demonstrators with paralysing weapons? Or could the packs even be lethally armed?” Marks asks.

Marks interviewed Steve Wright, an expert on police and military technologies, from Leeds Metropolitan University, who commented:

“The giveaway here is the phrase ‘a non-cooperative human subject’.

What we have here are the beginnings of something designed to enable robots to hunt down humans like a pack of dogs. Once the software is perfected we can reasonably anticipate that they will become autonomous and become armed.

We can also expect such systems to be equipped with human detection and tracking devices including sensors which detect human breath and the radio waves associated with a human heart beat. These are technologies already developed.”

Indeed, noted as PHASE III on the Pentagon proposal is the desire to have the robots developed to “intelligently and autonomously search”.

Earlier this year another top robotics expert, Noel Sharkey, Professor of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at the University of Sheffield, warned listeners to the Alex Jones show that the world may be sleepwalking into a potentially lethal technocracy and has called for safeguards on such technology to be put into place.

Professor Sharkey stated:

“If you have an autonomous robot then it’s going to make decisions who to kill, when to kill and where to kill them. The scary thing is that the reason this has to happen is because of mission complexity and also so that when there’s a problem with communications you can send a robot in with no communication and it will decide who to kill, and that is really worrying to me.”

The professor also warned that such autonomous weapons could easily be used in the future by law enforcement officials in cites, pointing out that South Korean authorities are already planning to have a fully armed autonomous robot police force in their cities.

Perhaps one candidate for the Pentagon’s “Multi-Robot Pursuit System” proposal is Boston Dynamics’ rather frightening BigDog (pictured above). The latest version of this hydraulic quadruped robot can carry up to 340lb load and recovers its balance even after sliding on ice and snow:

Are we looking at the future of policing in America?

Technocracy is what we're moving into - looking less like democracy, more like CCTV vs. democracy, every day. Okay this may be from the 1980s but the 'transistor is the enemy' conclusion is just as relevant today.

Beneath the City Streets.
The Secret Plans To Defend The State
Peter Laurie
Granada, 1979
ISBN 0 586 05055 8


Commenting on the Swiss Civil defence handbook - sent free to every household.
Then on the twisted logic of mass extermination.

There is a depressing and realistic preview of the Third World War. Long before it begins we must be alert and learn to keep our mouths shut. Spies are interested in every thing - railway timetables, the telephone number and habits of this or that civil servant. Railway uniforms are found hidden among grasses near a main line. A watch is kept and three spies are caught. Children at play find a wireless set buried in a wood. Alas, they bring it home and spoil a promising lead. Four spies are sentenced to death, and their appeals are refused by the Federal Assembly. .
'The beds are cold this winter. But we hold on.'
The city is attacked, is flattened. Every street becomes a battlefield, every ruin a fortress. (The owner is of course entitled to compensation for property requisitioned by the armed forces. He should be careful to get a receipt from Divisional HQ.) A thoughtful two pages on the laws of war as they affect civilians with a drawing of some who did not pay attention tied to stakes before a firing squad.
A chapter on the Resistance. 'All those who participate in the Resistance risk their lives. This is not a game, it is a pitiless war.'
But why should an enemy waste time and effort in crushing little Switzerland when he can achieve the same results by guile ? Note the fictional adventures of the wicked Party of Social Progress, the PPS. An agent of a foreign power reports: 'We have placed at its head MJ, an intelligent and active man, devoured by ambition and much in need of cash. The bourgeois parties offered him slender hopes. '
A sample of the PPS's sinister wares is a wall poster,:
'Why spend these millions on the military?
We could build homes
Pay for holidays
Raise pensions
Reduce the hours of work
Reduce our taxes.
YES to a better future!'
Here is the organization table of a revolutionary movement, its HQ abroad, its front in the homeland, its secret cells, its sleeping members, unsuspected 'by even their best friends among the gullible Swiss. Agents of the enemy unleash a terrible scandal about the finances of the Federal Council (happy the land where such scandals are only the work of enemies). The weaker citizens dispute among themselves, the stronger stand firm in their confidence! We must be constantly on our guard against calumnies on our chiefs and authorities. Absolutely.
Altogether this handbook is a work of passion and breadth which sits uneasily beside the bland nothings of our own civil service. From one point of view one can detect self-interest; from another plain barminess. But perhaps there speaks British insular complacency. After all, the Hungarian revolution and its disquieting sequels happened as far from the Swiss border as North Wales is from London. France and Italy nip Switzerland pretty close: both might have communist governments in five years or less. Not to mention the PLO raging round central Europe, seeking whom it may devour. But the possibility that he might be right never made a Calvinist tone down his rebukes. The National Director of civil defence, Hans Maurenthaler, asked about the curious absence of civil defence among the nuclear powers, comments:
. . . we live in a world of tension, of brutality and of blackmail, that is everything but peaceful and reassuring. The best proofs of this are: Disarmament conferences; non-aggression pacts; non proliferation treaties. . .To misunderstand this menace, to want to minimize it or even steadily to deny it while knowing that it exists amounts to evidence of laxity, foolishness or even depravity.
If the superpowers had not obligingly invented the H-bomb, the Swiss government would have had to invent something equally threatening.
So, simply because the H-bomb has not yet been used in anger, does not mean that it has not had a profound effect on the modern world. Without it we might have learnt to live more in amity. Or, of course, we might have torn each other apart with the weapons that were quite effective enough in the Second World War.
When might it be used? In spite of the Soviet military's obvious determination to fight and survive a nuclear war, it is difficult to believe that such a course would be in the broader interests of the civilian leaders of Russia.
I am coming to believe that there is a much more serious threat to the technological way of life than the H-bomb. It is the transistor. Over the last two or three hundred years in the West we have followed a course of development that coupled increasingly powerful machines to small pieces of human brain to produce increasingly vast quantities of goods. The airliner, the ship, the typewriter, the lathe, the sewing machine, all employ a small part of the operator's intelligence, and with it multiply his or her productivity a thousandfold.
As long as each machine needed a brain, it was profitable to make more brains and with them more profits. Industrial populations grew in all the advanced countries, and political systems became more liberal simply to get their cooperation. (You cannot safely put a bulldozer in the hands of an aggrieved slave.)
But now we are beginning to find that we do not need the brains - at least not in the huge droves that we have them. Little by little, like a calm tide creeping over flat sand, with a finger of water here, a rush of foam there, artificial intelligence is dispossessing hundreds of thousands and soon millions of workers. Because 'the computer' is seen only in large installations doing book-keeping, where it puts few out of work, this tendency goes on unnoticed. But in every job economics forces economies on management. Little gadgets here and there get rid of workers piecemeal. And so far the real thrust of artificial intelligence has not yet begun. In journalism, for instance, it is now quite unnecessary to have printers. Journalists can type straight onto a small computer that edits their work, checks spellings and punctuation, arranges it in columns, sets it in type and makes up the newspaper page. Any job that can be specified, say, a thousand rules, can now be automated by equipment that costs £200 or so. The microprocessor, which now costs in itself perhaps £20, is the heart of a computer. It has not begun to be applied: over the next 10 to 15 years millions will be installed in industry, distribution, commerce. Machinery, which has almost denuded the land, will now denude cities.
Politically, this will split the population into two sharply divided groups: those who have intelligence or complicated manual skills that cannot be imitated by computers, and those - a much larger group, who have not. In strict economic terms, the second group will not be worth employing. They can do nothing that cannot be done cheaper by machinery. They cannot contribute their own intelligence, because the machines will have enough of their own. The working population will be reduced to a relatively small core of technicians, artists, scientists, managers, surrounded by a large, unemployed, dissatisfied and expensive - mob. I would even argue that this process is much further advanced than it seems, and the political subterfuges necessary to keep it concealed, are responsible for the economic malaise of the western nations and their galloping inflation. This is not surprising: if one has to pay several million people who are in fact useless, as if they were not, this is bound to throw a strain on the economy and arouse the resentment of those who are useful, but who cannot be paid what they deserve for fear of arousing the envy of the others.
If the unemployed can be kept down to a million or so in a country like Britain, the political problem they present can be contained by paying a generous dole, and by lavish social services - even though they are beginning to crumble under' the strain. The real total of unemployed is much larger, but they are hidden in business. What happens when automation advances further and the sham can no longer be kept up? A recent report from the Manpower Commission said that Britain's 90 largest firms planned to get rid of a third of their workers when current technological improvements were brought into use. To cope with millions of unemployed and unemployable people needs - in terms of crude power greatly improved police and security services. It demands that factories and computers should be put out of cities, preferably where they are inaccessible to the mob or the saboteur. It suggests that the unemployed should be concentrated in small spaces where they can be controlled, de-educated, penned up.
And, seen from the right point of view, this is just what is happening. All over the West, police and security forces have been growing apace. Civil defence, active in Russia, being revived in America and many other countries, puts useful national industrial assets out in the country, underground. The useless masses gravitate to decaying cities like New York: one can foresee a time when the rest of America will put barbed wire across the bridges and throw enough supplies over them to keep the mob quiet.
Unless some drastic alteration occurs in economic and political thought, the developed nations are going to be faced in the next thirty years with the fact that the majority of their citizens are a dangerous, useless burden. One can see that when civil defence has moved everything useful out of the cities, there might be strong temptation on governments to solve the problem by nuclear war: the technological elite against the masses. Doubtless, to salve consciences, it would be dressed up as a war between superpowers. But it would not be surprising if the only survivors were just those who found the dead masses the most oppressive. In short, America and Russia, Britain and France, India and China, Egypt and Israel might agree to take in each other's dirty washing.
So one might guess that when Russian industry is as automated as America's, then we may look for action. Happily it lags some way behind; and because it spends so much effort preparing for war - which is very labour-intensive - it is likely to lag further behind. Crudely speaking, the longer the Russians prepare for war, the longer we can expect peace.

Robots will take over most jobs within 30 years, experts warn
The rise of robots could lead to unemployment rates greater than 50 per cent, according to Professor Moshe Vardi
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/12155808/Robots-w ill-take-over-most-jobs-within-30-years-experts-warn.html

Sarah Knapton By Sarah Knapton, Science Editor in Washington3:15PM GMT 13 Feb 2016
Robots will have taken over most jobs within 30 years leaving humanity facing its 'biggest challenge ever' to find meaning in life when work is no longer necessary, according to experts.
Professor Moshe Vardi, of Rice University, in the US, claims that many middle-class professionals will be outsources to machines within the next few decades leaving workers with more leisure time than they have ever experienced.
Speaking at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting in Washington, Prof Moshe said the rise of robots could lead to unemployment rates greater than 50 per cent.
"We are approaching a time when machines will be able to outperform humans at almost any task," said Vardi, a professor in computational engineering.

“Robots are doing more and more jobs that people used to do. Pharmacists, prison guards, boning chicken, bartending, more and more jobs we’re able to mechanise them.
“I believe that society needs to confront this question before it is upon us: If machines are capable of doing almost any work humans can do, what will humans do?
"The question I want to put forward is, 'Does the technology we are developing ultimately benefit mankind?'

Prof Vardi, said existing robotic and AI technologies were already eliminating a growing number of middle-class jobs and claims that pace of advancement in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) is increasing.
In December, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore unveiled the most humanlike robot ever created, which will work as a receptionist on campus.
With her soft skin and flowing brunette hair, Nadine does not only meet and greet visitors, smile, make eye contact and shake hands, but she can even recognise past guests and spark up conversation based on previous chats.

Today Airbus and the Joint Robotics Laboratory at the University of Frankfurt, also announced it was developing humanoid robotic technology to perform difficult tasks in aircraft manufacturing.
The company said it would relieve workers of the most dangerous and laborious tasks, allowing them to concentrate on ‘higher value tasks.’
The robots in development can climb ladders and crawl into small spaces and are expected to join the workforce within the next decade.

But Prof Vardi is unconvinced that a workforce of humanlike robots will be good for mankind.
"A typical answer is that if machines will do all our work, we will be free to pursue leisure activities," he said.
"I do not find this a promising future, as I do not find the prospect of leisure-only life appealing. That seems to me a dystopia. I believe that work is essential to human well-being.
"We are approaching a time when machines will be able to outperform humans at almost any task"
Professor Moshe Vardi
"Humanity is about to face perhaps its greatest challenge ever, which is finding meaning in life after the end of 'In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread.
"We need to rise to the occasion and meet this challenge before human labour becomes obsolete.”
