Hey sit down and listen and they’ll tell you when you’re wrong.
– Bad Religion “You Are The Government” (Suffer 1988)
America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America’s power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a popular democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public’s sense of domestic well being…….The economic self-denial (that is, defense spending) and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.

You Are The Government
For the last four or five years of my life I have spent most of my time and energy trying to further my understanding of how the control system operates globally and then to write what I saw in order to warn of the danger ahead to as many people as possible. I am only one of tens of thousands if not more of such messengers out there, roaming and posting on that vast sea of collective consciousness that is the internet. The battle thus far has been extremely rewarding and painstakingly challenging, but overall I can say that my post Wall Street life has been some of the best years of my experience on this planet. In case you haven’t noticed, I have been writing a little less frequently as of late. There are two reasons for this, one of which I have mentioned previously, the other I haven’t. The first reason is that I used to write a lot about financial markets, but as I have seen them morph from somewhat free on most days to a completely rigged hologram of propaganda, I have decided it is best for the vast majority of humanity to not be involved. I have said this before but I want to reiterate that I think for most people out there (unless they are professionals that think they can maneuver the end of the financial and monetary system as we know it) it is best to take any excess money and buy real goods. Physical in your hand gold and silver and if you so desire do things such as plant a garden and get your home as self sufficient as possible. I have been sending this message out for much of the last six months and I continue to think that this is the way to go. Even though I haven’t taken my own advice, I say leave the casino and don’t go back unless the whole system is reformed.
The second reason I haven’t been writing as much is because I think it is time for all of us that are aware to move on to the next phase. I believe the “awakening” phase is largely complete. Those that were going to awaken ahead of collapse have done so and now we must move into the “non-compliance” phase. This is not to say that it is not important to keep spreading the message and getting people up to speed on the news. What it means is that enough of us are awake and ready to take action. We know the score. Any amount of bills to indefinitely detain Americans without trials or executive orders that allows the President to take over the entire economy and break commercial contracts in an “emergency” such as war OR peacetime as Obama signed on Friday (http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/03/16/executive-order-national-defense-resources-preparedness) will not wake us up and more. We are awake and we have critical mass. So let’s roll.
From the very beginning of my journey I realized that the Achilles heels of the power structure is precious metals. Central banks run our lives and enslave us through their fiat money that they create and distribute at will. In this was they are able to allocate money at zero cost to those that do what they want, yet at the same time keep funding from those that do not go along. This ensures that most of the people at the top have almost no ethics. Essentially, global central banking is the most effective dictatorship ever imagined because it is hidden and internationally made complicated so that the masses never understand or question it. Global Central Banking reminds me of the Lernaean Hydra of Greek mythology, which would grow back two heads each time one was cut off. In an interesting coincidence (or were the Greeks trying to tell us something) the Hydra was ultimately defeated by using a Golden sword given to Hercules by the goddess Athena. Buying physical precious metals is in my opinion the most effective way to end the control system overnight; however, what I have noticed is that only a small percentage of the population that is awake for whatever reason is able to fully grasp the monetary system and how it works and is therefore uninspired to take this course of action…at least for now. Being someone that does understand the monetary and financial system (please read my piece on why fiat money is immoral (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/guest-post-why-fiat-money-immoral) the most effective way I see for myself to exercise my vote against in and engage in lawful civil disobedience is to convert my control system counterfeit dollars into precious metals.
Since many people ask me about timing on the metals I will comment on that at this moment. The desperation I have witnessed as of late to smash the metals is beyond anything I have seen in the many years of watching manipulation in this market. That means one thing to me. These guys are absolutely terrified and are probably running very low on inventory with which to suppress. Never have I seen such panic. Such panic is what you would expect right before the parabolic stage begins. My feeling has been that they will attempt to get gold below 1600 and silver below 30 one last time in an attempt to break the back of the market. I think the physical off-take on any move down there will be massive and will set the stage for the move to $2,500 gold and $75 silver by the end of the year. On any raid down to those levels I will be in the physical market buying. Moreover, no matter where we are price-wise I plan on buying at least a little physical silver on May 1 of this year. This is to commemorate the one year anniversary of the silver massacre, which occurred as we “caught and killed” our enemy du jour Osama Bin Laden and dumped his body in the ocean before anyone could have a look. While it may not end the fiat system right away, I would suggest everyone consider doing the same on that date. It’s a giant middle finger to the Central Bank cabal and their minions and I think it is worth doing.
Freedom to Choose a Light Bulb
So the other day I saw a notice on my door. It said a team of people would be coming into my place in the middle of the day to change all the light bulbs to energy efficient incandescent ones. First of all, many years ago when I was in NYC I experimented with these bulbs voluntarily. I didn’t like them one bit. I decided to not switch over because I preferred the older ones. This is how a market is supposed to function. Then years later I have this team showing up at my apartment to literally tell me what kind of light bulbs I can use. What is next? How long I can shower? How many cups of water I can have in a day? What kind of food I can put into my body? Will there be a team from the local hospital coming next in an attempt to force a vaccine on me? This is a very slippery slope and we all need to stand up and say the government is not my boss. They are our public’s servants. YOU ARE THE GOVERNMENT.
So anyway, these guys just came to my door not five minutes ago. I asked them if I was being forced to change the bulbs. They said no and they would give me the energy efficient bulbs and I could install them myself. I agreed to that. Then one member of the team became uncomfortable and said they would need to come and take my current bulbs which are operating just fine. So let me get this straight. These clowns that are supposed to be worrying about the environment and efficiency want to take perfectly fine bulbs and toss them out to force these new ones down my throat? Think about how many perfectly fine light bulbs these guys are going to confiscate and then throw away. Once again 2+2=5. This is about conditioning the public to do whatever the government says. When I refused to let them come in and confiscate my bulbs the guy (who was very nice actually) tried to sway me by saying they were working with the Federal Government. Little did he know 😉 In any event, ultimately he admitted that I could refuse the new bulbs and I did. They left without giving me the new ones and without taking the old ones. A shallow victory? Perhaps, but this is how we need to proceed. Little steps. Take control of your own destiny and don’t be bullied around by a NYC/DC oligarchy of bullies with a printing press.
As we move deeper into 2012 I will be exploring more ways in which to exercise legal civil disobedience in my everyday life in order to frustrate the system and remind myself that I am a sovereign human being. I would strongly suggest that you all do the same. I want to hear ideas from people so in the event you have some concepts of legal civil disobedience that will help dismantle the New World Order please send it along. These guys aren’t that strong. Yes they control the mechanisms of power but those mechanisms only function through our compliance. We must stop complying.
