THE AMERICAN DREAM…EVAPORATING?
The Daily Bell reported a little over a month ago about a recent Congressional study detailing what everyone living in the elitist imperial culture that America has become already knows: there is growing social immobility, a shrinking middle class, and growing cynicism and unease:
Hush-Hush Congressional Research Report: The Myth of Social Mobility
In my opinion the critical paragraphs are these:
"The empire that the US has become is commonly seen by the bought-and-paid-for media as the apogee of sociopolitical and cultural achievement. But as we have pointed out, empire is nothing more than the last exhalation of a dying and corrupt culture.
"It is the time PRECEDING empire during which cultures achieve greatness, when people have social mobility and control over their own lives, inspirations and inventions. Empire is inevitably a military excrescence that takes each positive enumeration of civil society and weaponizes it.
"Pre-empire cultures are great places to live. But cultures that celebrate empire are miserable ones, full of hate, fear, paranoia and socio-economic and political control."
True enough: America is hopelessly Balkanized by a variety of federal "policies" that have stressed this group or that group, and denuded the school system of anything approaching an adequate grounding in American History (or European History for that matter). Civics courses in the constitution and the basic precepts of American jurisprudence and fundamental law have all but disappeared from the curriculum; science and mathematics and English language and literature - the essentials for any meaningful communication and analysis - have fallen by the wayside.
The prices of decent housing and vehicles are skyrocketed while, in the meantime, the corporate elites have fostered policies of "free trade" that have all but gutted the once mighty American manufacturing base. The cynicism of most Americans towards the engineered (s)elections that constitute the political "process" - with each party making promises of radical change, of dealing with the energy crisis, the education crisis, the financial crisis, the debt crisis, falling on increasingly deaf ears because nothing, fundamentally, ever changes.
That cynicism is reflected in the increasingly draconian measures coming out of Washington, for the power elite in this country realizes that in some hard-to-articulate fashion, it has lost the backing of the people; the enthusiasms as hollow, the platitudes are increasingly seen as just that. Some have simply given up trying to pursue the "American dream" and seek alternatives. That growing cynicism, that apathy, however, is a sign of something else...
The Daily Bell is correct in that the Internet has fostered some of this. Increasingly Americans turn to foreign sources of news and from the major media, and simply refuse to take part in a political process that is corrupt to the core. Increasingly there are the "institutional subversives" that refuse to follow the directed history narratives being advanced in the academy or in the media.
The elite has never learned one simple lesson: empires, no matter how technologically sophisticated, no matter how draconian the measures instituted against their own populace, always fail of their own over-extended dead weight. Unlike in previous ages, the elite cannot simply pick up shop and move from one swamp to another...
See you on the flip side...

Well, it`s no wonder the “american dream” is kaputt. When the people are stupid enough to vote for a communist for president, they`ll find out soon enough what that means. The only jobs will be spying on your neighbours and ordering them around. Even little kids will be turning in their parents for a lolly. On another subject which I want to ask Joseph about. The Bilderberg Group was supposedly called that because they first met at the Bilderberg Hotel in the Netherlands, but they always claimed it was just a moniker. Now I read they are really called the “Bormann Continuity P2” as in Martin Bormann Phase 2 or Plan 2? Does anyone know about this?
“The elite has never learned one simple lesson: empires, no matter how technologically sophisticated, no matter how draconian the measures instituted against their own populace, always fail of their own over-extended dead weight. Unlike in previous ages, the elite cannot simply pick up shop and move from one swamp to another… ”
Another view is that this is all part of the plan, and always has been: despite what we might think, the true elite always continue on whether visible or not. They discard empires the way we buy new cars or new houses. Your latest empire just fell? So what . . .many goals of the “master plan” were achieved, just move on and start the next empire.
The Aerican Dream the ultimate drug a just as mind numming vacant the wheel of exsitance we all trap on.
In white countries when you force/coerce or socially engineer integration, tolerance and blending of races, in the end you have a non-white population left. Its just a matter of time. That is white genocide.
“Genocide involves the attempt to achieve the disappearance of a group by whatever means. It does not have to be violent, it could be a combination of policies that would lead to a certain group dying out.”
M Fraser-PMinister of Australia 1975-83
Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-white.
I’m sure the Babylonian banksters know the importance of genetics, and part of their power game is to tell the rest of us that genetics only codes for skin colour.
Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.
The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.
Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.
What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?
How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?
And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?
But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white. Anti-racist is a code word for Anti-White.
Unless that swamp is the Dark Side of the Moon…..or an underground civilization decades in the making.
Like all delusional people, the elites will never consider that they are to blame for anything – it is always the “other guy” who messed things up, in this case us “useless eaters.” this is why empires never learn the ultimate lesson of empire.
They are addicted to a worldview which doesn’t work, and anything that threatens to interfere with that addiction is the enemy, including the truth or reality.
Still, even in the worst depths of Nazi Germany, there were still people who managed to find themselves a little niche where they could be relatively immune to the greater effects of empire. That is still true today. There will always be ways to weave oneself into the fabric of a culture and make a path out of the darkness, especially since empire is always chasing shadows. (Which always turn out to be the shadow of their own delusions…)
We aren’t seeing a new empire, we are seeing yet another attempt by the Same Old Guys who have attempted to control the world for millenia. Are they just deeply retarded, or intentionally stupid? It is like they make a virtue of stupidity. Arrogance is ignorance.
By building up their prison planet utopia where they are the all powerful wardens they are quickly becomeing irrevelant to the 99.9% of the world’s populace. Just like in prison systems around the world the inmates are redevelopeing their own underground economy and power structures and rules. Biggest difference between the global prison planet and the smaller populated heavily fortified compounds is that when we inevitably riot there will not exist a policeforce or military large enough to get the global riot under control. And the elite need to keep in mind what the prisoners do to the prison guards and wardens when they get their hands on them during a riot. Those who love their new unfettered unconstitutional powers in the establishment need to know where this is leading for them if they don’t do the right thing and learn to police themselves and arrest their constitutionally unlawful superiors. That and they will watch their kids and grandchildren become the victims of a tyranical system in their retirement and know that this is the true legacy they have left their offspring because they got off doing the wrong thing.
Rebellion’s the only solution.
InCorrect. Rebellion By slaves InVariantly Reduces (Falls) to Dominance By Tyrants. Study Cycles both in Nature & “Civilizations.” Peruse the following regarding the Nature of Choice in Duality (Tyrants / slaves):
“For the past 6,000 years men have been forced to choose between becoming tyrants or the slaves of tyrants. With endless wars raging around the planet, men have been subjected to the horrors military life. They have been trained to reject emotional information, to endure pain in silence, and never cry. A man separated from his mother at an early age has little opportunity to cultivate tender feelings and makes a better warrior. Just as a woman separated from her father is more easily dominated, manipulated, and always seeking the lost father, she makes a better whore.
As cannon fodder the motto of men was often, “Ours is not to question why. Ours is but to do or die.” I sometimes wonder how many 1000s of men have spent days, wounded, lying on battlefields fighting off vultures and praying for the mercy of death – lifetime after lifetime.
The ancient Sanskrit PURANAS tell us that in the Kali Yuga: ‘Men will devote themselves to earning money; the richest will hold power’ – as if this is something bizarre, an anomaly. In today’s world a man is measured by the size of his bank account.
Young men, who do not have the opportunities that come with money, continue to join the armed forces. For a man the choice still lies somewhere between being a beggar and becoming a tyrant. But spending a lifetime in a giant corporation for a pile of possessions and a mortgage just doesn’t appeal to every man. Some dare to wonder why they should work all their lives at a job they hate and that bores them only to acquire stuff.”
“THE FATE OF MEN…”
(Suggest reading the entire 13 pgs. – you might learn “something.”)
As far as rebellion goes, it is Too Late to wake up the masses against The Order… Consequences Must Play Out to A Conclusion. These “consequences” which “Initiate Change” Are Always “A Transformation,” another description of which is: “All these changes may appear to us as death and disintegration” (Eloise Franco),
take away the cause but not the symptons….freedom is an illusion for all in the materialist system.
The order has never been threatened….ever.
One cause is a private debt based cuirrency that should be replaced with a state currency debt free. Trillions issued after FED is nationalized to be spent on infrasture, High-Speed Rail, internet, roads, bridges, ect., All with living wages. Have an economy that works for a 100% of the people, instead of working for the .01% at the expense of 99.99% of society. The gap between the haves & have nots is becoming ever larger. It’s time to stop this madness. Start with nationalizing currencies & also prosecuting corruption gon wild. The Chinese are executing banksters others like them. Time to flatter the Chinese by imatating them, in their execution of imposing justice upon those who have assumed they are above the law.
Time to rock the bloated, status-quo ship of state.
See Jedi’s comment. … Nothing is 100% In Duality, A Resistence Field/Realm. … Chinese? Neh’eh. Humanity is Contending with Itself as the Fallen Logos & Its Dogz, the Ancient ELemental Beast. You can’t confront That with Whelming Ignorance.
You can always count on the blind and ignorant running to the front of the line.
Naga you got a youtube account?
Yes. And use it often. … The Construct IsIs A DISC that Sines. Anti-&-Matter: Lemniscate of Eternity (BOLD); Infinity IsIs Recessed, Right-Angled.
The ole law of the force motion reversed cubed.
Well, you had a youtube link you’d like to share?
I kind of agree with you on this post of yours.
If you call this “Civilization” then I would agree with you.
A mother’s care insures a proper “Development” in more ways than one? (Yanked from a Mother’s Nurture (site of love) to be placed into a TRAINING CAMP called a Kindergarden or Elementary School!)
Those kids crying on the first day of school SENSE WHAT’S AHEAD or what’s in store for them? (so they cant express in words why they feel that way.)
The adult’s dimissal of the child’s crying is moot because most adults cant really give good reasons for why they are feeling the way they are? (Do we have to be Mechanics in order to know how to drive a car. No, I don’t think so neither do we have to have sic —legitimate reasons for why we feel what we feel? We just DO! Our biological being just KNOWS.)
This third level you mention is interesting but sounds cliche like —- God’s Chosen Few! (it’s just another out or escape value so one does not have to feel the pressure of Reality! A Kindly Opiate (messainic notion of being the ones saved –wouldn’t you agree? Remember George Carlin’s short U-Tube presentation. It’s a goddam clicke and YOUR (Naga) NOT IN IT!)
Your such an AESTHETIC type person. Try jumping into the fray (I think you have certain experiences but like they say in 12th step programs —“You cant rest on yesterday’s sobriety and do nothing today?”)
Although it’s not easy to unemotionally observe and draw conclusions from this “LIVE AND LET DIE!” philosophy of neutral detachment keep in mind a saying Howard Zinn used — “You Cant Be Neutral on a Runaway Train!”
DIVE IN TO THE RIVER!
I once heard it put in another way by a Paul Shepard who was siting on a sofa beside his wife in a cabin that had a large picture window overlooking some very beautiful wilderness forests and mountains. His remark to wife’s comments on how beautiful it looked was something like this —- Honey — Your looking at Nature through a FRAME?
So Naga — my uncalled for advice to is get off your virtual-reality butt and get some real experience of what YOUR TALKING ABOUT!
Or to be even more Blunt —- Add some F2CKING PAIN then you will get the COMPASSION you are so deeply SEEKING?
You must Grow more. Using a Limited perception produces sweet error. You readily note the Detachment I evince, but you fail to apprehend the FYre that produced it. Wise Up. There are Two Kinds/Types of Everything… one passive, one Active. I Am the Latter (Ladder). The yogi’s become subverted into by the Immensity of what they Encounter, and immediately resonate passivity in the Lyght, for they find the Hierarchy awaiting (False Order, ‘the “gods”‘). Beyond this IsIS Active In The LYght. Contemplate (don’t “think”). It IsIS The Aggressive(+)-Dynamic. You are being “undone” via entrainment. No one can “save” another. Beyond Intuition & Reason, Is Knowing.
NAGA the WIT,
Some good advice, thanks.
On the face of it we do need to grow more but to contradict this— in the aging process we are really ‘DECAYING!” (decomposing before our very eyes!) So the idea of growth should be trans-mutt-ed into some kind of idea of the “conservation of libido” or sticking around longer in this life we are thrown into!
Your words squeal on you Naga. There is no such thing as UNLIMITED PERCEPTION. All perception ‘excludes’ or selects something henceforth it may be gargantuan but still limited FINN-ITY! ( it’s a bullshit momentary-transcient-fantasizing to think we can really TRANSGRESS or transcend our Finn-ite Lives- permanently! ( all we can do is exercise our fins swiming for a little while then WE SINK!)
We can check out in suicide but what’s the point of that —- Life is just one unfinished never to be completed business.
The yogi isn’t subverted as you say? The yogi realizes he is a DROPLET in the ocean. If he is confronted by a heirarachy or false order than the yogi hasn’t reached samhi or however you spell it and needs to go back to the drawing board or get out of his hiding place or cave!
So you still use that old-fashioned, worn out, cliche-metaphor of LIGHT! It makes me think of those creatures at the bottom of the deepest part of the Ocean who don’t need eyes because why on earth would you need eyes if there is no light? Ha, ha!
Eyes would be a useless appendage wouldn’t you say? So if the Universe is not composed of Light but just DARK MATTER then why would we not need the eyes of Intuition to see?
I partially agree with this beyond of Intuition but its inexplicable nonsense! —–A COSMIC MOZART LAUGHTER!
(as far as Reason goes it’s like the lesser word-cousin – rationality — stretch rationality so far and you find total IRRATIONALITY! ( like the good minds who invented the ATOMIC BOMB that has the potential to destroy all life on Earth = totally NUTS!
The bottom line is we need a cheap source of power and soon! I doubt if you will look at it Joseph I posted it in the Russian Moon article! Sometimes things are so obvious it is like I as a prophet have to slap you up side your head!
I mean you are a physicist type person and you been talking about missing Gold and being ripped off! And yet sure as shooting I believe I have revealed to you a God type idea! Yes like a sort of hidden “Savings account” I almost missed it myself!
I mean you will never look at the hazardous nuclear waste site industry the same again! What is it going to take for you Mr. Scholastic Genius to0 wake up and smell the coffee and realize we have a possible Trillion dollar type industry maker hidden right under our noses. Cheap electric power we been stock-pilling it for years and years!
But yet it takes a numb nuts prophet to try to show you “you still can’t see the forest through the tree’s”! Jobs, construction, engineering, reusable waste products, cheap electric power, seemingly endless power source we already have, and totally cleanup the environment both now and for future generations. Both for here in the USA and around the world and give everybody a hand up not just a hand out!
I would say this is definately a God sort of idea because it is impossible for any one man or any one group to produce and or control.
And it is not even my idea and it has already been proven by GE physicists and engineers it has been buried for over 50 years! Maybe it is time to pull our shovels and special red tape cutting equipment!
It has been said sometimes one good idea is all most people can hope for in their life time can put them from Rags to Riches!
So really the American dream seems like it is dead if you cannot think outside the box or explain the types of things God begins to drop into your lap!
Huge as in beyond anything you could ever ask or think on your own
I don’t have to own this idea just get on board some place and hang on for the ride!
Dude I just lost my job and am about to lose my home! And God gives me an idea like this? So it ain’t about me!
Hey Atlas Shrugged is out in theaters, Ayn Rand actually predicted this scenario.
