As most long-time readers here are aware, I have no love lost for technetronic gurus like Zbgnw Brzznsk, people with vowelless names sputteringly aspirated in reference to their guru-like status in the technetronic community. But, every now and then even these cold-hearted practitioners of Realpolitik have occasional bouts and brushes with sanity, and in the spirit of giving credit where credit is due, consider the following article about some recent comments Mr. Grand Chessboard Himself made to German media outlet Deutsche Welle as reported on the provocative website "Hang the Bankers":

Brzezinsky Admits Alternative Media Stalling War with Syria

Now, by the time this blog appears(for remember, I pre-schedule most of them), the Congress may have decided for some sort of nonsensical punative strike against Syria, or it may not). But even the Great and Powerful Zbig seems to question the wisdom of the B.O. administration, whose foreign policy appears to be a bit of a mystery to the man:

“'Given the contemporary reality of what I have called in my writings ‘Global Political Awakening,’ a policy of force based primarily on Western and in some cases former colonial powers does not seem to me a very promising avenue to an eventual solution to the regional problem,' said Brzezinski, referring to the situation in Syria."

Now, given that Mr. Brzznsk is a lap-poodle for what may broadly be called the Rockefeller interest, and thus, a spokeman for that faction of the Anglosphere, this is a rather significant statement, for it's a message that wherever Mr. B.O.'s foreign policy is coming from, it's not coming from there.

And that's significant folks, because it means there is some serious breakdown and infighting going on, and that the old guard is losing its grip and influence.

Contrary to what readers here might imagine, I'm not entirely pleased with that. Whatever else the old guard was, it wasn't reckless. Cold, yes. Calculating, yes. Murderous, yes. But not insane, and not reckless. It's the addition of "insane" and "reckless" to the stew of "cold, calculating and murderous" that's the problem. When those ingredients are mixed, we're in Hitler territory.

But toward the end of this article Brzznsk makes a statement that is, in its own right, very revealing of the emerging mentality, precisely as the Old Guard is losing its grip over what Brzznsk is calling the Global Political Awakening:

“'[The] major world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality: while the lethality of their military might is greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at a historic low. To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people,' said Brzezinski during a 2010 Council on Foreign Relations speech in Montreal.

"Despite attempts by both the Republican and Democratic leadership to gain support for a war in Syria, a new Reuters poll revealed that only 9 percent of Americans support military intervention in Syria. If the United States intervenes, it will be the least popular war in American history.

"The massive and growing evidence forced out by the alternative media, which points to a US backed chemical attack by Al Qaeda led rebel forces to be blamed on Assad, has only accelerated the inevitable downfall of the corporate press that is now only trusted by 23 percent of the public.'

Mr. Brzznsk is wrong, this is not merely a political awakening. It is a full scale cultural awakening, because the institutions of the old order, the media-government-finance-military-religion complex, are simply no longer trusted. And even if the powers that be were successful in imposing stringent internet controls such that only their favored memes were promoted, that mistrust would simply move away from CNN and Faux news to the internet, or, to be more accurate, the internet would simply join the list of mistrusted institutions and organs. This is going to quickly morph into a mistrust of the "academic" narrative as well, as the role of western universities in promoting elite sponsored memes and programs comes under increasing scrutiny, and the result will be the same: they will be revealed not as places for the promotion of independent thinking, and more a "meme-mills" promoting various disciplinary dogmas.

And Mr. Brzznsk is also wrong in another respect. It may be easier to kill one million people than to control them. But doing so will only dramatically increase the distrust and cynicism already abroad. What needs to be done - if the elites are to maintain their power and influence - is clear, and there's only one way to do it. They must reinvigorate confidence and trust in "the system," and in themselves. And there's only one way to do that. They must earn it, and that means being genuinely open to that "global political awakening."

So far, at least in the West, thanks to people like Mrs. Pelosi and the "let's vote on it in the middle of the night behind closed doors to find out what's in it" attitude she and so many in power exude, the prospects are not very promising.

See you on the flip side.

    What amazes me, is these so called intellectuals and leaders just don’t get it, and they have not done so because their narrative is still stuck up a feudal mindset. “Control.” Humanity is naturally moving towards adulthood, we no longer as individuals need Mom and Pop, we went through our teenage rebellion in the 17th 18th 19th and 20th centuries, it is now time to hand us the key to the door! The object is not “Control,” rather it is self empowerment, responsibility and commitment. They have tried to delay this natural progression through dumbing people down, but it is not working, water will flow where it must. And it is time these dictatorial “parents,” in the form of Kings and Queens, Popes and Gurus, Banking and Corporate Giants who have quite frankly become suffocating, moved aside.

    • LSM on September 21, 2013 at 7:43 am

      Hi Gail- I hope this finds you well-

      “Humanity is naturally moving towards adulthood”- am not so sure about this- if this is truly the case then people would finaly realise that their flat-screen TVs, cell phones, Wifis, etc. (the list is endless) is taking them away from reality and putting them on the level of belief that a stuffed teddy bear actually brings them love and the validity of the tooth fairy (money is usually involved in the tooth fairy’s legacy under a pillow if most haven’t yet noticed)-

      electronics are robbing people of their minds- and we’e achieving adulthood?- hardly- we’re going backwards-

      the following concept has been a pet peeve of mine since 9/11 (my political awakening- I got de-flowered big-time on that day): if humanity as a whole is evolving into adulthood then why do more and more people continue to emerse themselves in the mainstream MEDIA; in blindless crap, literally texting/phoning the persons right next to them among countless other things?-

      most of my co-workers have an Ipod (or whatever it’s called) and try to humor me by showing me mindless Ipod s**t they think is interesting/funny but leaves me in the dust as far as its validity is concerned- it’s neither funny nor informative so I just smile politely- then they go away-

      so if humanity is achieving adulthood then why the hell do most people of all ages become more and more emersed in/addicted to mindless toys?

      I experience this every day in commuter trains: few people read books- they’re all connected to their gadgets in their ears, push buttons on a gadget at the same time and have glazed eyes- adulthood?- no, cretins-

      enough for now-

      by the way, great website you have-


      Larry in Germany

      • Gail on September 21, 2013 at 11:07 am

        Firstly ty. I work hard. If people do not have the information they cannot make decisions. You cannot damn someone and call them stupid when they are basing their decisions on the only information available to them.

        Which brings me to the main crux of your answer. If you look at history, you will see that a certain crazy person called Joshua, aprox 2800 years ago came up with this insane concept. Take into account that the world he lived in believed that Kings and Queens were the children of the Gods and had the devine right to rule, and therefore could act with impunity and bash anybody’s head in whenever they felt like it. Against all odds, he set up a society which had as the highest authority Judges, and the Law, the beginnings of a Constitutional Court. One of the first Judges was even a woman called Deborah. And what is more, people were entitled to a proper hearing when accused of a crime with witnesses to speak on their behalf. Crazy concept in those days! What? You mean the King could could just issue the NDAA? OMG! Yeah, In fact there were no kings, no temple priests and there was not even a dang temple!

        In the great scheme of things this was a very small community in this world surrounded by Empire controlled by … Kings, High Priests and Temples. … now here is the thang, talk about looking a gift horse in the mouth, the people themselves started to feel that they were not good enough, and demanded a King. Oh my goodness ! And so we have the warnings in 1 Samuel 8.

        In the first century A.D. another guy also funnily enough called Joshua, Greek translation Jesus, came along and said the same dang thing. He was tempted in the desert with all the kingdoms of the world, and turned the offer down, the people wanted to make him a king and he left for the hills, Pilate asked him if he was a king, and he said, the words are yours, not mine. His message was high-jacked by Constantine who through some really good copy and paste jobs turned the whole movement back into King and Temple worship. Idols basically.

        We sit on the brink again, and the dyke will no longer hold. The internet will wash it away and the old system is done for. A seed planted takes time, and you need the 100th monkey who is prepared to walk boldly and explore a different mindset. It is time. The human race has come of age. It only takes 10% to be aware to tip the balance and I believe that globally we are way over that percentage by now.

        Stay well Larry and thx for your kind words.

        • LSM on September 22, 2013 at 5:23 am

          hey, Gail, many thanks for your very detailed response- very appreciated- I have great respect for your intellect/knowledge (throw your website in there too) otherwise I wouldn’t bother to respond- and thanks again to you providing me with some very essential links-

          “The human race has come of age. It only takes 10% to be aware to tip the balance and I believe that globally we are way over that percentage by now”- I can only hope you are right but I don’t yet see it yet in my personal surroundings here in Germany let alone my family in the US: continued zombification due to electronics- I’m just reporting what I witness on a daily basis- obviously the 100th monkey/10% has yet to reach my personal surroundings- but let’s hope for the best-

          please continue to stay well- regards-


          • Gail on September 22, 2013 at 10:48 am

            Joseph’s beat 🙂 And do not underestimate the electronics. Young people are often more wide awake that you would think. Many of them click onto FB sites that would surprise you 🙂 I have faith.

            Stay well Larry and thx for the kind words.

    • LSM on September 21, 2013 at 8:16 am

      I think you could be right, jedi- the Chinese flag never flew in DC before- just connecting dots on my part: my oldest brother in NE Ohio told me about a yr. ago that many signs at his favorite builder’s supply mart now are now sub-titled in Chinese (his perception of an oriental language- could also be Japanese, etc.)- no s**t- I’m not making this up- so I tend to think the Far East may be in the meantime playing a much more influencial role in western politics than we can even begin to imagine

  5. jedi on September 20, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    ….the military is a double edged sword, historically speaking, overthrowing the ptb Haas been a relatively easy process….and then perhaps the orobus principle might be in play, a waiting game of patience….both are terrifying and eventually cause madness ….of a significant coincidence the ancient texts warned of this peril. Those that lead into slavery soon follow.

  6. DownunderET on September 20, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    Wasn’t it secretary Kerry who said two weeks ago “that is was hard to govern with the internet”, well Mr. Secretary, it is, and believe it or not, the toothpaste is out of the tube.

    Poor old ZB is breathing his last breaths, and he’s probably looking back on his career and saying to himself, “well I did give it a shot”.

    What strikes me about Zbig’s latest comments is that he seems forced to voice his opinion through the MSM, which indicates to me that he is no longer the #1 advisor to the President, as he seemed to be in the beginning. Looks to me like he is now on the outside, looking in.

    Gordon Duff (Veteran’s Today intel site) said in an interview recently that he, personally, has been shocked by what seems to be Brzezinski’s conversion to “telling the truth” now, all the time! Even he doesn’t know what to make of it.

    • MQ on September 21, 2013 at 9:36 am

      Maybe ZB has found out he has a terminal illness. Some people try confession to be able to rest (or is it wrest?) their guilty conscience.

          I’am reminded of:

If there is any kind of legimate nostalgia, it’s for everything we’ve never senn, the women we’ve never slept with, never dreamed of, of friends we haven’t made, the books we haven’t read, all that food steaming in pots we’ve never eaten out of. THat the only kind of nostalgia there is.

            The reason there will always be herds, be they cattle, sheep, or goats; is due to the double-nature of mankind.

          • jedi on September 20, 2013 at 4:25 pm

            The reason of herds, is natures answers to safety in numbers..whales take advantage of this by grouping the fishes in a big baal and taking the the entire orb by surprise…….

            Thanks shockandawe. There is a recent book that goes into that very subject of the dual nature by E. O. Wilson. Great insight.

            Yes jedi, i’ve read many papers and books that tell of mankinds’ cannilbalism being not unusual. In that “our” history has been so contaminated by elitist propaganda, I have no doubts that “we” went green long, long ago (soylent green, that is.).

    Dr. Farrell: I am SO glad that your blog here, and your recent Nefarium video, brought attention to the statements being made by Mr. Z.B. When the Syria warmongering began heating up last month, I too was shocked at the unexpected call for caution coming out of Brzezinski’s mouth. My knee-jerk reaction was: “What is the world coming to when a word of sanity has actually been uttered by HIM??!!”

    I will be interested to hear Dr. Fitts’ take on this new crisis: Old Guard vs. New Guard.

    BTW, I follow Brzezinski’s twitter feed. Here are a few tweets by him (or authorized by him … can’t really imagine him sitting in front of a computer, tweeting, but there you go.) These are statements in the last 3 weeks, in chronological order. Quite revealing, and supportive of your theory. I inserted my own response regarding his comment about “Russia and China not being joined at the hip” in mutual interests …. uhhh, what about the natural gas pipeline, Ziggy?

    ‏@zbig 25 Aug
    The geopolitical context of Kosovo in 1999 and Syria now are vastly different-we must not rush into a bellicose foolhardy response à la 2003

    @zbig 28 Aug
    The US should seize the moment in Syria to generate wider international engagement to prevent a region-wide conflict.

    ‏@zbig 30 Aug
    Even a generalized UN condemnation of chem. attacks on civilians would clarify the moral dimensions of the Syria conflict.

    Given recent events we now must act in Syria to maintain credibility, but we badly need a strategy. GPS

    Military stalemate in Syria would be best because it might prompt an internationally sponsored regional accommodation http://nbcnews.to/161Uel0

    Could not agree with you more, and I quote: “This is going to quickly morph into a mistrust of the “academic” narrative as well, as the role of western universities in promoting elite sponsored memes and programs comes under increasing scrutiny, and the result will be the same: they will be revealed not as places for the promotion of independent thinking, and more a “meme-mills” promoting various disciplinary dogmas.”

    Many view the so-called ‘mainstream media’ as puppets, of the political puppets themselves. This same pattern IS rolling along and over the university systems, including their much-vaunted centers of ‘higher research’.

    As ZB has gasped in horror at the parting of the curtain behind the stage that is Syria, and the Middle East at large; fleetingly revealing the insider trading schemes of the NSA, et al. So too doth he seek to hold the curtain closed over said institutions of ‘higher learning’.

    For it is these ‘hallowed halls’, that generate manipulated minds, serving the puppet master.

    From disgust of military brute force in jungles, to rage against stooges in political circus, to rallies against greedy banksters…the hordes of serfs upon the net are travelling down a myriad of rabbit holes…only to discover Cheshire Cats smiling up from the darkened depths of laboratories of manipulation and control.
