On every new question the majority is always
wrong in the beginning. Whenever any new
fundamental issue arises, the majority are in the wrong, because they are
guided by tradition, prejudice and habit.
One of the sources of evil in modern
large representative democracies is the fact that most of the electorate have
no direct or vital interest in most of the questions that arise.
Should Welsh children be allowed the use of the Welsh language in
gipsies be compelled to abandon their nomadic life at the bidding of the
coal miners work an eight-hour day?
Scientists be compelled to call in doctors in case of serious illness?
These are matters of passionate interest to certain sections of the
community, but of very little interest to the great majority.
are decided according to the wishes of the numerical majority, the intense
desires of a minority will be overborne by the very slight and uninformed whims
of the indifferent remainder.
If the minority are geographically
concentrated, so that they can decide elections in a certain number of
constituencies, like the Welsh and the coal miners, they have a good chance of
getting their way.
If they are scattered and politically feeble, like
the gipsies and the Christian Scientists, they stand a very poor chance against
the prejudices of the majority.
Even when they are geographically
concentrated, like the Irish, they may fail to obtain their wishes, because
they arouse some hostility or some instinct of domination in the
Such a state
of affairs is the negation of all representative democratic principles.
Progress comes through the gradual effect of a minority in converting
opinion and altering custom.
For such reasons, it is of the utmost
importance that the majority should refrain from imposing its will as regards
matters in which uniformity is not absolutely necessary." - Bertrand

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
created 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 Life - 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 Life 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
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 central banking
system, mass 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
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 mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed
into the population through prior mass 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.
