"We are what we pretend to be,
so me must be
careful about what we pretend to be."
"Why is it we have finite
resources for health care but unlimited money for war?
Trillions for war and Wall
Street, billions for insurance companies.
When we were promised
change, we weren't thinking that we give a dollar and get back two cents." -

2004 According to the US
Defense Energy Support Center Fact Book US military fuel consumption increased
to 144 million barrels.
About 40 million barrels more than the prior
"peacetime" military usage.

per day, almost as much as daily energy consumption of Greece.
2006 CIA World Factbook, only 35 countries (out of 210 in the
world) consume more oil per day.
2009 US military
officially uses ~ 320,000 barrels of oil a day. this excludes
Pentagon, after a public relations
campaign to "go green," spends $17.3 billion on oil, a 26% increase over 2010.

"democratic peace" underwritten by an
expanding neoliberal global order, and at the next,
retreating into a "fortress America"

militarily controlling American society
1968 DoD Civil Disturbance Plan 55-2, or
"Operation Garden Plot," is developed in response to the major protests and
disturbances of the 1960s.
November 18, 1988
Executive Order 12656
defines national security emergency
as "any occurrence, including
military attack, technological emergency, or other emergency, that seriously
degrades or seriously threatens the
of the US."
Since this date the US military has been training troops
and police in "civil disturbance planning".
Estimated value of the weapons, equipment and
factories devoted to the
DoD is 83% of the value of all
plants and equipment in US manufacturing.
"The 3rd Infantry Division's 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last
60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle, helping restore essential
services and escorting supply convoys. Now they're training for the same
mission at home. Beginning Oct. 1
for 12 months, the 1st Brigade Combat Team will be under the day-to-day control
of US Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call
federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters,
including terrorist attacks. After 1st Brigade Combat Team finishes its
dwell-time mission, expectations are
that another, as yet unnamed, active-duty brigade will take over and that
the mission will be a permanent
one.They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and
crowd control." - Army Times,

"A new report by the US Army
War College talks about the possibility of Pentagon resources and troops being
used should the economic crisis lead to civil unrest, such as protests against
businesses and government or runs on beleaguered banks. The study says economic
collapse, terrorism and loss of legal order are among possible domestic shocks
that might require military action within the US" - Phoenix Business
"Widespread civil violence
inside the US would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in

domestic order and national security." - Army War College report

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern
propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an
international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt
version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any
group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due
to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of
philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a
rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of
faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in
which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation
with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality
in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human
spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against
individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate
This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the
intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the
international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The
international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system,
corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex
and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered
behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on
cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power

through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been
the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do
