careful about what we pretend to be."

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.

world) consume more oil per day.

"In the realm of diplomatic and strategic theory, this
version of reality creates a
fluctuation of appearances, at one moment fleeing into the ideal of a
"democratic peace" underwritten by an
expanding neoliberal global order, and at the next,
retreating into a "fortress America"
protected by a ballistic missile defense.
Ethical inquiry into
the relationship of this form
of reality to organized violence begins with an inquiry into rationality of
the necessity of, or need for, government sanctioned violence." - James Der
Derian, Virtous War
"What experience and history teach is this - that
nations and governments have never learned any thing from history or acted upon
any lessons they might have drawn from it." - Georg Wilhelm Friedrich
This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
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 coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at
the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined
precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has
garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the
populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which
have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media
psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family
and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
