Culture is a closed system of thinking and values, of the sort I am denouncing; and the
greatest barrier to your enlightenment, your education, and your decency, is your culture.
And I realize with joy that here I skirt the bounds of political correctness.

The Psychology of Authority

"In the Machine Age, overt slavery disappeared,

to be replaced with a system in which nearly everyone

did demeaning work out of survival anxiety.

"Do it or you will die!"

That's slavery, all right.

The great promise of machine technology:

Every man a king!

Every man a god!

Has borne its opposite.

Every man a slave!

Slaves without human owners,

all laboring under the yoke of money."

Charles Eisenstein



the right to control, command, or determine

the power to determine, adjudicate, or otherwise settle issues or disputes

In religious culture the initiated hold religious authority over spiritual needs.

In State culture representatives of the State exercise State authority.

In academic culture academics claim authority over intellectual knowledge.

Authoritarians come in two flavors: leaders and followers.

The two tiers are driven by very different motivations; and understanding these differences is the first key to understanding how authoritarian social structures work.

Authoritian directors form just a small fraction of any group, typically run in a wolf pack with an alpha leader and act as shepherds to the wayward sheep.
Directors are dominating, opposed to equality, committed to expanding their own personal power, and amoral.

Social scientists refer to this group as having a social dominance orientation.
Direction followers have a different but very complementary set of motivations include conventional submission to and aggressive support of authority.

"These people seize every opportunity to lead, and enjoy having power over others." - John Dean, Conservatives Without Conscience

They have absolutely no qualms about objectifying and testing people while breaking rules and even laws to advance their own ambitions.


Another Brick In The Wall

Personality Predicts Obedience in a Milgram Paradigm

econimic blackmail

Pick a brick wall.

Any old brick wall will do.

Look at the surface of the old brick wall and watch it grow.

An ancient Shaolin master said:

"Big moves are not as polished as small moves.

Small moves are not as polished as stillness."

The exercise is done to seek a stillness of the mind necessary for calmness.

The concentration required to see a brick wall grow comes from focus.

That inner focus is derived from excluding distractions, including and up to people watching you yell at a brick wall out of frustration.

When you finally attain enough focus and finally let enough of the world go so that you can watch that brick wall grow mold, you will have learned.

See it as being able to stand perfectly still during a tempestuous storm.

You are calm not because you are unafraid, but because you have attained enough inner discipline and peace as to see things for what they are.

Try watching a brick wall grow. Tell me what you see and how you feel.

"Those who do not engage in high-risk activities
should not be made to subsidize those who do.

Subsidizing high risk activities encourages risk taking."

Athbhreith Athbheochan

"The idea that businessmen are strong defenders of the free enterprise system is one which is believed only by those who have never studied the history of private enterprise in the Western, industrial nations.

Those individual enterprises that are expected to benefit from some new government program have every short-run financial incentive to promote the intervention." - Gary North

"Government subsidizes business in myriad ways, direct and indirect.
These subsidies are known as "corporate welfare."

Corporate welfare can be indirect.

The Export-Import Bank and foreign aid provide financial help to foreign governments so they can contract with American firms for many goods and services.

The common denominator in all these schemes is the forcing of taxpayers to funnel benefits - by one estimate $87 billion a year - to favored businesses.

The scope for influence peddling and corruption is vast. " -

"Every coercive monopoly was forged by government intervention into the economy: by special privileges, such as franchises or subsidies, which closed the entry of competitors into a given field, by legislative action." – Ayn Rand

1998 International Center for Technology Assessment calculates that subsidies reduce the cost of gasoline by $9 per gallon.

2005 George Walker Bush signes a bill overhauling American energy policy.

The bill includes $11.5 billion in tax breaks for the energy industry.

First quarter the four largest petroleum companies report profits of $23 billion.

Second quarter ExxonMobil posts a record $7.64 billion in profit.

ExxonMobil makes a record $36 billion in profit the year petroleum companies report record profits!

18 Senators and 46 Represenatives own stock in ExxonMobil.

2006 ExxonMobil sets a new record of $39.5 billion in profits.

ExxonMobil grants a $398 million golden parachute to the retiring CEO.

2007 ExxonMobil sets another new record with $40.6 billion in profit.

agricultural subsidies

Conservatives Prop Up Rich Farmers

"Our system is so complicated - ie. rigged - that it's almost impossible to know how much agricultural subsidies cost American taxpayers.

Since 2000 the American government paid out $1.3 billion to "farmers" who don't farm.

They were simply "compensated" for owning land previously used for farming.

Cash payments have cost $172 billion over the last decade, and $25 billion in 2005 alone.

These numbers barely tell the story appallingly immoral agricultural.

Subsidies combined with trade barriers (another term for subsidy) prop up the price of food for consumers at home and hurt farmers abroad.

This keeps Third World nations impoverished, economically dependent and politically unstable.

subsidies wreak havoc on the ecosystem.

One small example: There's a 6,000-square-mile dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico.

It's so depleted of oxygen because of algae blooms caused by petrochemical fertilizer runoff that shrimp and crabs at the Louisiana shore literally try to leap from the water to breathe.

Most of the fertilizer comes from a few Midwestern counties that receive billions in subsidies (more than $30 billion from 1997 to 2002 - Environmental Working Group).

Also consider that American farming is hugely energy intensive.

Those energy costs are not fully borne by the producer, so in effect the taxpayers is paying for greenhouse emissions that do not benefit him."

Jonah Goldberg

"Family farmers and ranchers are America's original and most quintessential entrepreneurs.

The cornerstone of America's economy, the wellspring of American values and the stewards of vast stretches of rural America's most remotest and most beautiful landscapes.

In 1980 there were more than 1.3 million ranches and farms with cattle nationally. Today, fewer than 950,000 are still in operation.

In 1980 there were also more than 666,000 hog farms, but that number has declined to fewer than 67000.

Without family farmers and ranchers acting as stewards of working lands that they own, the beauty and vitality of rural America's greatest assets will be lost forever." - John Crabtree, Director - Center for Rural Affairs

"Despite having the cheapest food system in the world, Americans are arguably the most unhealthy, "starving" for real, nutritious food. Farm subsidies is at the core of this phenomenon, which champions the interests of agribusiness." - Dorit Dowler-Guerrero

The cost of subsidies to growers of wheat, cotton, corn, soybeans and rice is $25 billion per year.

All other farm products are excluded.

The free market works for all other farm production, and it could work for the producers of wheat, cotton, corn, soybeans and rice.

Small family farmers are harmed as they are specifically excluded from most farm subsidies.

Small family farmers subsidize corporate agribusiness through lower crop prices, higher input costs, higher farmland costs and industry consolidation and, as a final insult, through patented gene 'drift' resulting in contamination of healthy seed stock.

Fortune 500 companies and celebrity "hobby farmers" collect millions of dollars under federal subsidized farm programs.

The federal subsidized farm programs, a system originally designed to prevent food shortages and farmer poverty, does neither and has become so corrupt that nothing less than abolition of the system is called for.

Between 1995 and 2005:

Senator Jon Tester (D-Mont.) T-Bone farms in Wolf Creek, Montana, received $232,311 for wheat, barley, oats, dry peas and disaster assistance.

Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) received $715,000 from 1995 to 2005.

Senator Sam Brownback (R-Kan.) received $40,043 for conservation. Sam Brownback's father got $319,662 and his brother John received $286,082.

Senator Richard G. Lugar (R-Ind.) received $126,555.

Senator Ken Salazar (D-Colo.) family farmed in Colorado for 400 years. Ken Salazar's brother, Rep. John Salazar (D-Colo.) received $161,084.

Senator Max Baucus (D-Mont.) has divested but his family business Sieben Ranch Company in Wolf Creek, Montana and received $230,237.

Wasted Days & Wasted Nights

1994 to 2003 Use of government purchase cards increases from $1 billion to $16 billion. General Accounting Office audits of the charge cards found ineffective management, oversight and weak internal controls at the departments of Agriculture, Army, Navy, Air Force, Interior, Justice, Transportation and Veterans Affairs.

A Navy employee had used a government credit card to make 59 fraudulent purchases worth more than $132,000 which included two cars, cosmetic surgery and a motorbike.

A Defense Department employee used a purchase card to charge $1.7 million in fraudulent purchases from a fictitious company set up by her brother.

Federal procurement spending climbed from $ 203.1 billion in 2000 to $412.1 billion in 2006.

2000 to 2006 No-bid and other contracts awarded without full and open competition increase by over 300%. Spending on no-bid and limited-competition contracts surged from $67.5 billion in 2000 to $206.9 billion in 2006. More than half of federal procurement spending is awarded through no-bid and limited-competition contracts.

187 contracts worth over $1.1 trillion are documented to have been plagued by waste, fraud, abuse, or mismanagement in reports from the Government Accountability Office, the Defense Contract Audit Agency, individual agency inspector generals and other independent federal oversight officials.

The author feels that the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern pr☠paganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reaλity on the human race. Religi☯us int☯lerance ☯ccurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religi☸us beliefs or persons due to their religi⚛us ide⚛l⚛gy. This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a ra☨ional gnos☨ic mys☨ery re☦igion 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 pers∞nal relati∞n with Æ∞n through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the hope of curing the spiritual c✡rrupti✡n that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us beliefs in America is considered a "hate ¢rime."

This web site in no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to c✡ntr✡l the human race. The internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel already controls the w☸rld ec☸n☸mic system, c☸rp☸rate media w☸rldwide, the global indus✈rial mili✈ary en✈er✈ainmen✈ complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the eg● w●rship and the destruction of gl☭bal ec☭systems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the p☠pulace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by press☟ng em☠ti☠nal butt☠ns which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior c✡rp✡rate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the fami♙y and the destruction of s☠cial structures that do not adhere to the corrupt internati☭nal elites vision of a perfect world. Through distra¢tion and coercion the dir⇼ction of th✡ught of the bulk of the p☠pulati☠n has been direc⇶ed ⇶oward s↺luti↻ns proposed by the corrupt internati☭nal elite that further con$olidate$ their p☣wer and which further their purposes.
