Mis-institutions: Totalitarian is the system that justifies and caters to the spectacle of modern-day histrionics

On the surface of it, we live at a time of unprecedented opportunity and living standards for many. But under the surface shine, the machinations of a totalitarian system are in full swing.

Don’t be fooled by the apparent open spaces of access and avenues for free speech. While they certainly do exist, they exist essentially for a minor few and, even still, the gears of a system intent on occupying your personal space, and intruding into your life, grind on.

Take the extended reach of closed-circuit television cameras, now on every street corner and often in multiple sets. Attached to relatively draconian punishments which include fines of varying degrees and severity, these technological attachments to our lives are one way we daily surrender individual and collective liberties.

For instance, take traffic speeding cameras. While no doubt they can be a public good, yet the ability for social governance to extract pecuniary interest from a hapless motorist for contravening a speeding limit by some 10% margin, atop with the cumulative points system which threatens to strip the same motorist of his livelihood, is tyrannical and austere.

Consider, further, that a street-smart hooligan, knowing the whereabouts of the speeding cameras, who ducks and weaves and yet, ultimately, speeds more than the generally convivial motorist yet escapes punishment.

And the system of fines and punishments is extensive, permeating all aspects of our lives — from driving, to refuse, to taxation, to utility bills, to public amenities, etc. etc.

Ultimately, the people in governance have been placed in that position to look after the interests of those of the population they represent but somehow, somewhere along the line, these governmental bureaus have taken on a life of their own and their apparatchiks paradoxically march to the beat of their own drum (having lost site of the public good) rather than work for the people who elected them. Because there is no one who is good. None.

We live in a self-aggrandising, obnoxious, self-loving, society of selfish people — both in circles of power and without. We live, moreover, in a society where people want only to tickle ears and to have their ears tickled. We live, whats-more, in a society where trust is eroded, a society where you are guilty until proven innocent, one that shoots first and asks questions later.

Besides, administrations preference those with size and weight and disregard the little people and mums and dads of this world. The system is geared to kowtow to the heavies while the least slip through the wide cracks in the system or get forgotten or, worse still, are like they never existed at all.

There needs to be a grassroots, organically-inspired condemnation of largess and public administrations of all persuasions which cater to the biggest and loudest in society at the expense of the silent majority.

The fabric of society is built upon the little people and the countless families and makeshift families, not big business, franchises, oligopolies, and puritan wheelers-and-dealers.

Megalithic shopping centres, leviathan complexes, shiny tidbits come and go but its people, simple and sure, that keep the wheels in motion turning and hand-on the baton to generations more. It’s time the system was redesigned through organic conceptions (devoid of hierarchies of power and stripped of transhumanist agendas) and not the top-down misconceptions of what we might call the mis-institutions.

But that would require people to stop swallowing the cultural junk that they are daily fed and blindly consume with insatiable lust.

New Heaven and New Earth

By all accounts, both secular and sacred, mankind is moving into a new age of consciousness — a new way of understanding and relating to the world around him.

The nature of an enchanted globe, the inherent symbolism in natural signs and their pointing to preternatural events, is being renewed in our sentient existence.

We are returning to an Edenic-like relationship between man — seemingly ostracised for 6000 years — and the natural world. We are becoming as if gods of sorts, pluripotent and reaching that potential.

Two thousand years ago, one came bearing the likeness of God, as a forerunner and role-model. Now, by his example and through the nexus that he forged between heaven and earth, God and man, the primordial sanctuary afforded Adam before the fall is destined once more to come to man.

Man is at the threshold of catapulting into a new age of spiritual awareness; indeed, has crossed the threshold and the rapid changes that it promises have already begun.

New insights, new paradigms, greater efficiencies, improved relating, mean that man and his dominion will ultimately settle into a new harmonious experience and existence of greater potential and greater transparency.

Standards of living will improve as people, paradoxically, become more in tune, and more congenial, toward natural living.

We will live more like animals, in the natural sense, yet more civilised, in the way we relate to each other. There will be far less tolerance for hostile, violent, aggressions against man and beast in all parts of the globe as man recalls his primordial animal roots and recalibrates his mode of action.

There will reign a thousand years of peace on earth, free from all malice and blood spilling.

This will mark the current or forthcoming Age of Aquarius, coincidental with the Millennial Reign. Heaven, earth, man, and beast, will live in a new-found harmony for one thousand years.

Rosh Chodesh Sameach

Or, “Happy New Month”.

According to A Rood Awakening:

The renewed moon WAS seen in Israel yesterday, confirming the start to the 4th biblical month (Tammuz) at sunset Thursday, July 4.

The Astronomical (lunisolar) Calendar for the month of Tammuz can be found at A Rood Awakening.

Eyes to See; Ears to Hear

Isaiah 6:10 King James Version (KJV)

10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

Jeremiah 5:21 King James Version (KJV)

21 Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:

Ezekiel 12:2 King James Version (KJV)

Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.

Matthew 13:15 King James Version (KJV)

15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Acts 28:27 King James Version (KJV)

27 For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Romans 11:8 King James Version (KJV)

(According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

Iran Ups the Ante in a Game of High Stakes

On 6 June 2019, an MQ-9 Reaper drone was shot down over Yemen. But on Thursday, Iranian aircraft shot down a Navy RQ-4 Global Hawk, a turbofan jet with wingspan comparable to that of a Boeing 737 that can operate its synoptic multi-sensor at an altitude, says retired naval intelligence officer, J E Dyer, of 60,000 feet.

Iran was the first to announce having shot down a U.S. “drone” on Thursday, near the Strait of Hormuz, but the Pentagon quickly confirmed it.

President Trump has called the Ayatollah’s raising of the ante by approving a further deployment of 1,000 troops to the region. But that’s not all, according to Jonathan Bernis, CEO of the Messianic mission, Jewish Voice International:

In addition, a squadron of 12 jet fighters, several spy planes, Patriot missile batteries, a B-52 bomber task force, the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group and other military assets have already been dispatched to the region.

Zak Doffman, CEO of Digital Barriers, an organisation concerned with surveillance systems, writes that President Trump’s response is a “game changer”:

“Though crippling to Iran’s military command and control systems,” reported the Washington Post, “the operation did not involve a loss of life or civilian casualties—a contrast to conventional strikes, which the president said he called back Thursday because they would not be ‘proportionate’.”

U.S. Attacks Iran With Cyber Not Missiles — A Game Changer, Not A Backtrack

I think Iran is testing the waters, here, looking for the level of resolve and readiness in the US and Israel, niggling, distracting, and being altogether a nuisance. But it may portend greater strikes ahead, perhaps when the dust settles.
