LET’S NOT LEAVE OUT THE TALMUD EITHER….
Yesterday I wrote about my home state's bill against the imposition or special consideration by our courts of any religious system of law, such as sharia. There, I warned about the dangers of the precedent being established by some courts willing to consider Sharia, in that this would open the floodgates for the imposition of other systems. Well, consider this announcement carefully:
Chabad to hold 17th conference on Talmud and law
Now, in case you missed it, ponder that one section again, that speaks of the special topics and sessions to be covered:
"The topics of this year's conference include 'The Bin Ladin Killing: Extra Judicial Execution and Incarceration In Judaic Law,' 'The Ethics Of Lawyerly Advice: Vigorous Counsel Or Suborning Perjury?' 'A Critical Analysis of Talmudic Citations in American Judicial Opinions' and 'An Examination of American Codes of Professional Ethics from a Perspective of Jewish Law.'"
Now, I'm certainly no specialist in the Talmud or "Extra-Judicial Execution and Incarceration," but the mere mention of such a thing as if it were a special topic of a particular religious tradition should give anyone concerned about the erosion of our liberties due pause, for it highlights the implication that I addressed yesterday, that in addition to the impetus of the national security-state, elite-driven "directed historical narratives" we may add to the list perhaps some hidden or little-guessed at players, namely, a tradition of religious sanction of extra-judicial "procedures" like execution and incarceration. So much the better for the national security state if, in its desperate search for justifications of these types of "procedures" it can cloak them in the mantle of religious respectability, notwithstanding all the cognitive dissonance that stems from that Janus-like god and tradition. As Dr. de Hart and I pointed out once again in Yahweh the Two-Faced God, this cognitive dissonance is inherent to these systems.

This is a question for Dr Farrell, Daniel Jones and Mattb as I know that they are into the hidden sides of Christianity. Under “where’s the outrage” I speculated about Constantine the not so great and his supposed Christian beliefs and his following Sol Invictus. How in public inscriptions Constantine would refer to God as the ‘Deity’, very ambiguous.
Recently I have read ‘The Master Game’ and on a side note I was very disappointed with the numerous mistakes in the names and reigns of emperors of Rome and Byzantium. Who the hell is emperor Cosmas I anyway? Once I got to the part where Bauval and Hancock described Gaius Julius Caesar as the first emperor and Pharaoh of Egypt I could read no further.
Anyway in that work they pointed out something that I had forgotten about, the depictions of Christ with the sun over or behind his head. That and the fact that Christianity has elements of Egyptian, Mithriasm and Hellenistic thought, amongst others, leads me to ask what may be a complicated question.
Is Christianity really Christianity at all?
Seems simple but I am not so sure.
Another question would have to do with the actions of one of the more controversial Emperors of Rome. He reigned after Constantine the not so great. I think with that Dr Farrell, Daniel and Matt will know instantly to whom I am referring to.
Correction they described Caesar as the fist divine emperor. Needless to say that statement is absolute twaddle and actually made me too angry with their incompetence to read further.
Let’s not forget the secular-humanist form of ‘sharia’ for which there are many examples in Europe and the United States. A Rabbi in Sweden has been threatened with jail and fines for homeschooling is children–kids who, moreover have achieved academic excellence as objectively measured. A Swedish official has also threatened to forcibly remove kids from the home if their parents try to home school them. And this link from the Huffington Post that a friend sent me is another example:
These are not isolated examples although the trend has advanced further in Europe–where secular-progressive (‘Gramscian’ as Malachi Martin would say) ‘sharia’ is far more advanced than it is here. But we going down the same road.
Hi Dr. Farrell, i realize this is off topic but i was wondering if you could advise me on how to go about acquiring the book you reference in your book “Babylon’s Banksters”.. ” An Introduction to Global Scaling Theory”.
Question not about the Talmud/
Have you ever heard of this “MYT engine”? Do you think we will ever see it in this country? I can pretty much bet it is already on a government shelf some where for national defense or security reasons classified secret getting ready to collect even more dust!
Really the last thing I would do is take any good idea to the us patent office! Strange he is claiming the Russians stole his idea but without them Rushskies I can pretty much guarantee this or his idea would never see the light of day in this country or anywhere else in the world!
THE TRUTH – There are “Two” types of Truth… The REAL & the UnReal (ReFlected-ProJected). The UnReal is Ever-Changing (MutAble), and is of the Relative-Temporal Nature (InVisible & Visible). The REAL Is THE TRUTH, UnChangeable (Immutable). … This is simply stated, and ReVeals The Three Spheres (3 + 1). It is Best if the animal Bear this in mind – It will help Sharpen the discerning of Truth, or “truth.” … “Truth isn’t a lesson to be learned. The Truth Is” (Eloise Franco). … “Reality is an illusion, albeit a persistent one” (Albert Einstein). … Making static observations in Illusion can sure be “fun,” but they give way to kinetic swirls in the dynamic imagery one thinks they perceive. The mon-keys have yet to learn this as a race; the fabulously ruthless elite+ have either been taught such, or necessarily programmed in the less gifted examples of their group members. It Works. Mon-keys resist, because they have Been Taught to resist this knowledge. … “We were talking about interpreting things we sense. Of course we know the senses are easily deluded – because its all an illusion anyway, I guess. Anyway it proves we should always look behind the appearance of a thing to find it’s real nature or what it’s Mind Pattern may be trying to express. That brings us to what it is reflecting. If we take that into consideration as well as what it seems like to us, we’ll have to develop an entirely new way of thinking!” (Eloise Franco). … Reporting “the shots” (news) is attachment to mateialistic effects, and by itself, mon-key-otic and ineffective. The Elite+ merely laugh at this, being hundreds of “movements” ahead of the material expressions They helped Direct into Being. … Try to understand what Brings Forth the Illusion: Twin Counter-Directional Spirals, the Dual VorteXes of Creational Process: Spirals Swirl the Myst-made-Flesh Imagery of the Illusion. Look WithIn their Center to find the Mind Pattern(s). … Polarization to Either Matter or Energy States FAILS to ReVeal (UnVeil) that which Lay At The CORE. … “But I Marvel at how this Great Wealth has made its home in this poverty” (“Gospel of Thomas”). … I have RELATED the First Law of Alchemy previously… To help “the really slow mon-key” grasp its Meaning, Here It Is: To Produce Their (Elite’s+) I-Mages (Mind Patterns), They HAVE TO TAKE THE ENERGY FROM OTHER (budding, incomplete) PATTERNS: YOU & YOU & YOU Ad Infinitum. GOT IT kNOW? … (Probably not, for its very Abstruse, & The mon-key mind confounds itsSelf.) … You Are “PROCESS,” Not “people.” “Duh-Oh?” Correct.
The Talmud,Old-New Testament,Islam-Shria laws assume we are too stupid to make our own laws mentality. If so why do we have a mind to think these things out it does not make sense. This all looks like a blue print for divine dictatorship for us slaves to obay.
A few additional points of interest for your review.

(03) NOW THE GOVERNMENT CAN LEGALLY KILL CHRISTIANS
( Since March 5, 1991 )
On March 5, 1991, in the House of Representatives, and March 7, 1991, in the U.S. Senate, without any knowledge of, or input by, the people of the United States, U.S. Senators and Congressmen passed a law that is so outrageous – and frankly unconstitutional – that it forces the American people to be bound by a set of monstrous rules, called the Noahide Laws, rules that make the belief in Jesus Christ a crime punishable by decapitation by guillotine! On March 20, 1991, President George H.W. Bush, a supposed Christian, signed the bill into law.
Before you respond, “NO, that cannot be – not in our free country!” let me explain.
Just what is the fascination of Evangelicals with Rick Santorum a devout Roman Catholic? I saw a TV interview recently with a book author, Pearson?, that describes an agreement of Catholic Bishops with Evangelicals. I would appreciate info on this if anyone has the details or authors name.
” . . . cognitive dissonance is inherent to these systems.”
Your point is well taken, but methinks you miss the main point: the goal of religion in our society (imho) is a COMPLETE LACK of cognition altogether . . . .
Anything beyond the ability to do simple tasks like make a sandwich, or stare at the TV, or besides the all-important ability to BLINDLY follow orders, is simply irrelevant to the big three monotheistic religions, probably most others as well.
I respectfully disagree. Religion is a form of cognition, one might, per Joseph Campbell or Carl Jung, call it a form of mythological or archetypal cognition. Yahwism’s essence is to scramble these forms, to be cognitively and morally dissonant.
A post of yours I can almost totally agree with.
Some good people are so fed up with this ‘scramble!’ They no long wish to associate their deepest feelings with the word Religion instead talk of Spirituality this and spiritually that. The second the word Religion comes up one hears the refusals. This, if you ask me, is evidence the person is still held captive of what (Yahwah – Churchology?) – their past!
As if those two words – Religion/Spirituality were permanently separated as in divorce. Their not but I wont go into that for you know it’s a long and tiresome story to keep on repeating..
I think the ‘feelings’ I have while dreaming at night whisper to me as when I am awake in the morning. They intuitively give me one among many possible answers to this ‘What is BUGGING ME about some of your writings. I couldn’t place my finger on or touch in a certain way but ‘tactile’ is probably the wrong word for it? It was more like a command to WAIT? (I am one of Post-modernity’s discontents — patience is a word I don’t always place a welcome doormat out to greet it. More like go away, don’t bother me – when I am not in a good mood or at my best!)
I can remember George Carlin in one of those U-Tube sketches saying over and over again to his listeners/viewers this. “It’s a goddam click and YOUR NOT IN IT!”
Farrell — I hate to spoil your dreams but you were in his audience too!
Translating mystery into MATHEMATICAL language is a marvelous and very difficult accomplishment and your due much credit for the effort but you are not an Engineer like someone else you may know.
Stick with the COMMON PEOPLE and forget about “some” of your former ambitious dreams if you know what’s good for you? ( You did Cambridge and proved to yourself something so cut that shit out and come join your family — even if it is a bunch of misfits, oddballs, cranks,hobos, monks and fumblers who end up marrying the princess and also a few artistic geniuses and clowns here and there mixed in like pepper — life is a Carnival so why are you holding an admission ticket in your hand but waiting forty years like some Kafka figure to walk through an open gate?)
OK I will put it in another way. Jews in Germany before the rise of Hitler wanted to assimilate with what they found to be an EXCELLENT CULTURE! So they ended up to be better sic -Germans ( after all despite their Religion (the non-secular ones) they were born in Germany so naturally they have the Right to call themselves Germans than many of their fellow Germans.
Too bad that is not how it always goes IN—-JUST AN ORDINARY WORLD!
Boy —- Did some find out the hard way!
Farrell — dig deeper. The acceptance is there! “There” isn’t always where its supposed to be? (ok I will make some of what you call ‘sense’ and call there the Philosopher’s Stone. OK?)
Now the other part of this buggy annoyance of mine – Biting off more than one can chew or wolfing down one’s chow. I believe this is what you and your co-author (is that right?) did in Babylon’s Banksters.
Mixing Physics, Economics, Finance and Religion altogether like you did is a grand ambition but only/usually/generally ends in imperfection – but we get what we deserve. A bunch of BOOMERANGS! ha, ha!
I play around like a bright child but that Kangaroo out there is dealing with her/his life! If you are that hungry for the big T rather than the little “t” = Truth then you better learn some more hunting tricks or starve. Kangaroo’s just may be a little smarter than what we first make them out to be?(what’s this about Australian Dream-time that some Anthropologists speak of? No Yahweh mention there or at least yahweh is a bad relative no-one has?)
I don’t know anyone who really pulled a COMPLETE BABYLON BANKSTERS off? (always unfinished business – never a moment’s rest!)
I wont say it’s a good try but then again I am not saying its a bad try.
That chapter about the Swamps of Venice to the Heights of London was much needed. It really re-CLARIFIED a true condition which then helps me to make sense of a few really naturally confusing areas what with all the HYPOBOLE surrounding Illuminati and how superlative they are. (standing in the muck of a bog isn’t my Confusian Idea of Superior as the Chinese might say!)
Liminal topics such as these such are what George P. Hansen warns us about. Areas do not necessarily have anything to do with the paranormal but are assumed to have henceforth the confusion.
Groups like that fall apart because some experiences are just too far-out or difficult to digest. (you did hint at “packing up your bags(website maybe) a few months ago?)
Now I would like to contemplate the possibility of what part a figure like the ‘TRICKSTER could be playing (iffy?) behind the scenes or maybe in DRAG as Yahweh?
Somewhere in the back of my mind (whether my unconscious space has been COLONIZED or not doesn’t make any difference here) I like HOLLYWOOD ENDINGS.
Now if this Trickster Figure is up to his (sic-the word his?) mischief then we all may have a hopeful chance? Like the (cop-out) ending of Faust where Goethe doesn’t really solve the problem of draining the swamps.
Lets not predict (yet) or hope for Kafkan responses where in his writings he never gets to meet the Captain or King. (makes no claims to have resolved anything?)
Just more RAT MAZES…. for the time being.
One more mention or CREDIT You made in another book of yours that really ‘hit the nail’ on the head or was driven home inside of my Soul —. About yahweh destroying someone outside his tent.
You theocity-like question finally enabled me to make a long-standing problem go away for good! ( are you subverting me like Socrates if so drink up, ha, ha! No your not for i ain’t a Youth.) That’s OK as long as I aint getting PERVERTED —- as if I am innocent enough, ha, ha!)
I am ‘GUILTY AS SIN” just like all the rest of you SAINTS, ha, ha!)
—- I am going to take a short skip and a hop down to Grant Park to the Modern Waterfall they have there which is also like a stone screen displaying various electronic art images. I am going to sit on a nearby bench drinking from a thermos I just bought the other day – GOOD COFFEE and enjoy the fine Spring Atmosphere watching the Tourists’ pleasant faces enjoying them selves on their Vacation.
Who needs a Outdoor Cafe in Paris during the 1920’s. This will do just as well!
Bon Jour all you good people —-this day = TODAY!
You are both missing the point.
There is no cognition (implied thought)
of any kind in any religion or it ceases to be religion.
Unknowing FAITH is a mainstay of ALL religions
even the corrupted far eastern ones.
The ‘god’ of all religions is taught as completely unknowable.
That ‘god’ must be very lonely !
Truth and true spirituality (consciousness energy, if you will)
is not only knowable, but begs to be understood.
It is, in fact, in your face. Is that too close perhaps ?
The British knowledge of the existence of Australia for centuries prior to the rest of the world would qualify as a break-away civilization, Dr. Farrell. They knew of the existence of an entire continent with a totally different race of men and hugely different species of animals is very similar to the U.S. government`s (likely) knowledge of the (close!) existence of extraterrestrials (and their artifacts). The secrecy of the British government was for no special reason. It was mundane, if there was any reason at all for it. The U.S. government`s secrecy regarding the E.T./U.F.O. issue is probably the same — mundane and stupid. If “disclosure” did not occur for centuries about (the existence of) Australia, we probably have an equal amount of time to wait for the U.S. government`s acknowledgement of E.T.
With Respect Crown, the only ‘breakaway civilisation in Australia is the ‘echo’ or memory of the original one we find in the First Australians.
Aboriginal ‘Dreaming’ is replete with stories that are similar to South America, Sumeria, Africa and the Bible, yet they are perhaps 60000 years old!
For example the term ‘Dreaming’ translates as different words in different languages of the Aboriginal peoples—the Arrernte call it alcheringa ngambukala, literally meaning ‘that springing from its own eternity’(pg 10 Living Religion 4th Edition.Pearson 2000.)
Sounds familiar to the concept of the Aether doesn’t it?
We have an Aboriginal ‘Stonehenge in Australia as well called Wurdi Yuoang
(very interesting resource site)
The Pitjantjatjara people called the Dreaming ‘tjukurpa’ which means ‘the time of the creation of the ancestral beings’.
What is interesting here is how specific ‘initiated’ groups or ‘chapters’ are responsible for specific sacred sites or ‘iwara’ (ancestral paths). This knowledge is forbidden to outsiders, as are the sacred objects which can be ritually created and destroyed. Their form and existence is highly restricted.
Aboriginal Dreamtime mythology contains many stories of the ‘Rainbow serpent’ who taught culture-very similar to Viracocha and Quetzalcoatl. First Australians also have a connection with the Rainbow Serpent AND asteroid/large explosive devices hitting the ground:
(Excellent site-the asteroid impacts that feature in Aboriginal mythology almost look like a carpet bombing pattern)
An extract from this article:
“2.2 Wolfe Creek
Wolfe Creek crater, located in northeastern Western Australia, is 850×900 m in diameter with an estimated age of ~300,000 years (Shoemaker et al 1990; 2005). The area is home to the Djaru, who call the structure Kandimalal (Tindale 2005:376). According to Cassidy (1954:198), Kandimalal has “no particular meaning in their language, and no legend exists to give a hint of its origin.” However, the literature reveals multiple stories associated with the crater, some of which describe cosmic origins (see Sanday 2007). One of the earliest Djaru accounts tells how a pair of subterranean Rainbow Serpents created the nearby Wolfe and Sturt creeks. One serpent emerged from the ground, creating the circular structure (Bevan and McNamara 1993:6; Goldsmith 2000). Another story tells how one night, the moon and the evening star passed very close to each other. The evening star became very hot and fell to the earth, causing a brilliant, deafening explosion. This greatly frightened the Djaru and it was a long time before they ventured
near the site, only to discover it was the spot where the evening star had fallen (Goldsmith 2000). Goldsmith reports that the Aboriginal Elder told him this story came from his grandfather’s grandfather, indicating it was handed down in its present form before the scientific identification of the crater. A Djaru Elder named Jack Jugarie (1927-1999) gave his account of the Wolfe Creek crater: “A star bin fall down. It was a small star, not so big. It fell straight down and hit the ground. It fell straight down and made that hole round, a very deep hole. The earth shook when that star fell down” (Sanday 2007:26).
That star is a Rainbow Serpent
This is the Aboriginal Way
We call that snake Warnayarra
That snake travels like stars travel in the sky
It came down at Kandimalal (Wolfe Creek)
I been there, I still look for that crater
I gottem Ngurriny – that one, Walmajarri/Djaru wild man.
Since reading Joseph’s Cosmic war, GGM&M, TPS and now reading GOTG, Hancock’s ‘Fingerprint of the Gods’ and Bauval’s ‘Orion Mystery’, I have started looking at Aboriginal astromythology in a very different light.
We have the oldest civilisation in the world and their languages hold the key (what is left of them).
Try Arnold Mindell’s “Earth Based Psychology.” He says he’s donating some of the proceeds from the book to the original inhabitants?
You may be a bit ‘put off’ by his way of explaning things Those lines or angles self-experiment of motion don’t do a single thing for me but they might for you ( II am not a PHYSICIST like he is or was— he worked at Livermore Lab so I heard —)oh 0h NO! – I heard some bad things about that place from the Charlie Sheens of the world but…)) but still there’s a few points that are BULLS-EYE!
SENT-SHE-ENT Awareness of the Earth’s Rotation and Aborignal Inhabitants AMAZING abilities to know DIRECTION even in a rotating-restaurant (they put the silverware in the opposite position it was before because after all the rotating restaurant was not in the original position?) Fascinating!—
I think Mindell may be a peace-keeper for he has an Institute in Portland which grants problably mickey mouse degrees in Negotiations and he also was a former Director over at Jung’s Zurich Institute (pretty impressive credentials) and the war-torn world certainly use more PEACEKEEPERS BUT this Livermore Lab business and a picture of him on the back cover of one of his books ( I’ll admit the likeness was him a while back but still?) i could have sworn he looked like that Black Devil Pope (with the skin-shaven head and van dyke beard (fashion maybe?) – Levoy back then in San Franscisco. ( not the kind of people you want to meet up/with in a dark alley late at night.)
I don’t know — keep an open mind if you read the book but ‘guard the gates” as well?
I don’t know about the Oldest civilization in the World?
As you probably know already I am not always a stickle-er with words (very sloppy/messy but sometimes I prefer not to be a Sticklefish?
Are you reading Farrell CORRECTLY?
(but I know what you meant.)
Some more grist for Hamlet’s grinding mill?
PRIDE OF PLACE
is fine if you weren’t born (thrown into —- like some philosophers would put it?) into a location like FALL RIVER , Massachusettes. Liike I was! (what’s that song by Paul Simon —Nothing but the Dead and Dying in my Home Town…)
Yeah—We have an AXE-MURDERER (Lizzy Borden) to be proud of —ha, ha! (although some women libbers would congrad-uate her for putting it to a very rich Miser who was sucking the life out of thousands of poor workers in those factories! Now with unemployment the way it is — almost everyone wishes they come back — it’s not very nice to call people names but their IDIOTS who can breathe much better but don’t even realize the blessing , Ah— the vainity of us idiots!)
I guess that’s the kind of fruit that grows from certain trees! The dark Satanic MILLS kind of trees as Blake might put it?
I use to have a good internet friend (we lost touch) She married one of those aborigenies. She claims the only place she could live in peace is with them. So Austrialia isn’t all that its cracked up to be. She was a white migrant from the United Kingdom who moved to Aussie-land as an infant!
When I heard of those cheap government sponsered hostels they have all over Austrailia I was almost tempted to go there to use my THUMB again but I am too old for that kind of enjoyable nonsense.
I would like to go to Turkey (wait a minute maybe , yes Lebanon)
and visit a few sic ancient ‘landing pads????? Who knows what kind of vibs are there!
I guess Turkeys like me would feel natural in Turkey, ha, ha! ( hey — give me the money and I am off….! at least for a little while. I can hear my wife say, ‘He sure is off his…!”)
So Matt if you were offended by one of my comments —“I insulted myself for you, got it?)
No offence taken. Actually I can’t see how i would be offended.
Many people focus on the Middle East and South America in regards to connection with a ‘Paleo-Ancient High society’ as Joseph would put it. However, the Australian Aborigine has been in this land for at least 60000 years (by the ‘standard model’ which I have issues with).
What this means is that this culture’s language, mythology, astronomy is FAR older than any other on earth (some scholars have posited a paleological age of possibly 70000 years). My point is why aren’t people looking here?
The only possible genetic link to Aborigines may, and I stress a very dim MAY be southern India-interesting in and of itself. The legends we have here PRE-DATE South America and the Middle East (yes I am well aware of the possibilities of the Sumerian king lists etc).
As for Australian Aboriginal languages-they appear to be unrelated to any other language group in the world,older than ‘pro into-european’ etc. If you are going to find the most ancient accounts of the ‘paleoancient high society’, I think it could be here in Australia.
It could be possible that the real secrets lay in Native Australian mythology and language. I am greatly concerned we could lose the vital links very soon.
Your answer is as I expected but I didn’t take any chances because one never knows for sure nowadays. Say one little different thing off the beaten path and it’s the gullitine for you! (coincidently — this mainstream beaten path (more like a rut the size of the Panama Canal is loaded with skull and bones!)
Although some of these off-beaten paths are dangerous and do have skulls and bones but one needs COURAGE (the ability to suffer) to successfully traverse them rather than chickening out and running the opposite direction. ( although sometimes its better to forget the heroics and run for your lives because Some GARZILLA is ….. using Magilla Gorilla tactics is smart!)
As far as ‘Why hasn’t people looked into it or here! I know for I constantly ask myself this dumb question which we already know the answer. We don’t live in a world of our own making where such aquestion would be put up on Billboards on Main Street like it should be!”
You know why don’t you Matt?
Begin to ask one simple question and the dogmatists’ FOUNDATION begins to vibrate or shake a little or rocks the well-helled-boots a little.
These people don’t have the wing-span our minds do.
Unlike birds for when a tree branch their sitting on snaps or breaks it’s no big deal for they have adequate wings and just fly off to some other perch. These Dogmatists who only thought they were getting the BEST EDUCATION MONEY CAN BUY didn’t realize their feathers were getting clipped!
So a slight tremor under-foot (psyches) and you would think the world is coming to an END! Ha, ha!
My question would be for how long did the British know about the existence of Australia? As far as I can recollect two Dutchmen Janszoon and Dirk Hartog were the first Europeans to discover Australia in the very early 1600’s. This being many years before the first Englishmen William Dampier. And if memory also serves the Dutch had named Australia as New Holland.
I can’t let this go without mentioning the relgion that’s at the heart of what is going on today. Before I address it, it is important to say these religions, are at heart, believe systems put into play, and then adopted by the powers that/to be – for exactly that said purpose: Power.
That said the new belief system is the so-called: Market.
I have to say: that because of economies of scale, technolgies, and other factors – the markets are simply manipulated, as were the religions, by the powers that/to be.
Voltaire argued that market activity should be valued not because it made society wealthier but because it was a more reliable motivator than religious zeal. But, both Voltaire’s and Adam Smith’s views were based on an idealized view of commerce, among small enterprises, none of which had economies of scale to distort pricing mechanisms.
This business of markets deciding right from wrong is insanity!/as is the private central banking cartel’s usurping a country’s power to issue their very own currencies, as debt plus compounded interest, owed to the private banking cartel.
Greece(you name the country) could do it at no cost, plus have 100% employment.
To allow an international private banking cartel to usurp all these nation’s currencies is pure insanity!
And religion can do that, if one isn’t careful.
I so agree. This is the hidden suprastate, religious authority/Law which lurks in all three of the Abrahamic “desert” (Yahwist) versions of one mysterious religion whose origins have yet to be traced out fully.
For while we mention Sharia (Islam) and Talmud-based law (Judaism), let us not forget that if they had their way, fundamentalist Christians in the United States would – today – make “the Bible” (whatever that would be for individual sects) the Law of the United States and each of its states.
We have just (barely) survived 2,000 years of that – including the Inquisition – when the Catholic Church was the final arbiter of the laws of European states. The Reformation brought us a new religious tyranny in a Protestant takeover of states, the imposition of harsh Calvinism on city-states, and the attempt to found whole nations (South Africa/Boers) and America on “God’s Law” alone.
It is interesting to note, lest we succumb entirely to ethnocentric “Western” analysis, that India has had to take a bag and forked stick to fight off the drive of fundamentalist Hindus, organized in a successful political party, who are seeking to “take back” India for Hindus and Hinduism…This has a nationalist ethnic thrust against the Muslin population of India, but is also a drum beat for the return of religous laws, customs and practices to replace India’s secular law and society.
I think you have the best of the “watch-dog” sites out here on the Frontier, Dr. Farrell, and I am so enjoying your books! All the best at the UFO conference…
Dr. Farell, you might find this article interesting:
Ties into the SSPs-ops book of you which I have just finished reading 2 days ago. Was, once again, a great book! Now I’ll have the drawback of reading your work: I just need to hunt down and read the references and I’ve got to wait for the next book/interview you write/do. ;-D
Much love and blessings! 🙂
They might rank them like in secret, top secret, or ‘for your eyes only’.
Perhaps they could start with a kosher killing and work upwards or downwards, or sideways, or go about it in a round-about-way?
For those educated in the inertial humanimal automatonic (bio-mechs) systems of intellect, perception of self-replicating behaviors should be seen as typical, not atypical. “Thou talkst of Nothing…” Over & over, trapped in those same systems, unperceiving (ignorant) of Creational Principle. … You are of Earth, part of the Fallen $Oil, $oul. *kicks the dead-in-the-head in the head* “I think its dead.” Of course it is – that’s The Hidden Secret of “life.”
