Ten things that will transform the whole situation without requiring you to make up you mind on any of the binaries being thrown your way - Republican/Democrat, Left/Right, Romney/Obama, Gold/Paper, or anything else:
1. Withdraw your money from the big banks (multinational banks, especially those tied to the financial crisis).
This can’t be done suddenly. You’ll need a lot of research. And you may have to park your money in one of them for a while, until you’ve decided. So be it. But start doing it and don’t tell anyone when you’ve done it.
Invest it in real things, in businesses, in tangibles, collectibles, metals, land, and property, after careful research. Only you know what’s the right mix, but it should produce both safety and income for you.
Get out of debt either by paying it off, restructuring, or begging forgiveness. Save money or borrow from friends or community banks or groups. Better yet, pay as you go.
2. Get the best encryption you can afford and use it for everything. It won’t always work. Your enemies will crack it; it will be buggy and slow. But live with it. Eventually, it will become second nature. The Internet is not a lovely playground. It’s teeming with all kinds of threats and dangers. Even with encryption, try to limit posting on forums. Someone, somewhere is always targeting your computer.
3. Stop watching all mainstream TV and cancel your print subscriptions. This will bankrupt the major media and their owners. If you can add to that all mainstream Hollywood movies, you are well on the way to warrior status. You will have foiled the main avenue by which intelligence prepares the public mind for its capers. Become a pop culture idiot. Brittany who?
4. Minimize shopping at major stores like Walmart. I know. It’s hard. But believe it or not, there are some better deals in smaller shops. Try them. Avoid rebates and programs that need your information. Or set up fake accounts, if you can. Try anonymous cards, nominee accounts and anything else to foil ID thieves and snoops.
Loose the consumer attitude. Make your own stuff, recycle, reuse, make do, buy second-hand, avoid the society of consumption addicts. Bargain for everything. Make companies earn your dollar.
Want to change corporations? Become their savviest, cheapest, most value-oriented customer. They will respect you. Heap contempt on people who do not live within their means. Take them under your wing and show them how. If they don’t listen, don’t pony up when they come back to you crawling. Give them a loan only if they renounce their evil ways. Even then, get your money back. Helping a friend and subsidizing his bad habits are two different things. When people want to trample on something, give them a doormat and keep your boundaries.
5. Disbelieve any major story in the media, reflexively. Practice saying, “It’s a psyop” to anything that comes up. You will be right about 85% of the time. And the remaining times you’re wrong, someone will be forced to actually dig to prove it. So much the better.
6. Refuse to endorse any personality cult whatsoever. Whether it’s for Obama or anyone else. Even politicians with “better” sounding credentials. The NWO wasn’t born yesterday. It’s had decades to decide which person to put into which slot at which time.
It has nothing to do with the individual merits of the person. The system is more powerful than any one person’s attempts to work within it. It will crush him, take your time and money, and destroy any real change.
Avoid people who promote personality cults. They are either fanatics who can make anything fit their ideology, genuinely naive, not the brightest bulbs, or shills. That doesn’t make for long term happiness in their company.
Remember what Yeats said. The worst are full of a passionate intensity.
People who say “I don’t know” or ” I was wrong” or “I changed my mind” are greatly in short supply. Join their ranks.
Practice not having an opinion and just watching other people having them. Then shrug and tell yourself something like “It’s all part of the great web.” Go for a walk.
7. Refuse to get involved in any cointelpro-type slandering of people. It’s perfectly correct to criticize and call out people, especially those proposing political programs or campaigning on them or harassing you.
But gross invective, malice out of nowhere, obvious mischaracterization of words/arguments, accusations without evidence are all signs of an agenda.
Life is too short to figure out all the agendas out there. Stay on top of the ones that hurt you personally, but stay clear of the rest.
Don’t make more enemies than you need to. They’ll add up on their own anyway, if you’re doing what you need to do and saying what you have to. So be it.
8. Develop religious faith or belief in the universe and its essential goodness. Don’t believe, however, in the essential goodness of men. Those are two different things, often confused.
Be prepared for the very worst from your fellow man, but expect nothing but support from the universe. In both, you will never be disappointed.
9. Don’t be transparent. It’s giving ammunition to your enemies and material to IP thieves. Let them work for it. Rehash old ideas, but keep your best ideas and thoughts to yourself. There is no law you have to share ideas with people who don’t credit you or share with you. Name and shame, if needed.
In fact, by defending yourself, you put others on guard that there are such things as rights. The internet is teeming with rights violators, who are never called out, because this is considered “free speech.”
It’s intellectual fraud and violence, which is the source of physical fraud and violence. The two go together like dosai and chutney.
Anyone arguing otherwise is simply wasting their time and yours. Avoid them.
10. Don’t reinvent the wheel. There’s no great complex idea needing to be discovered to change the world.
The prophets have already come and we killed every one of them.
We don’t need any more prophets. We need people working on at least one thing wrong about themselves.
No need to tell anyone what that is. Just work on it. And keep your mouth shut about it.
Stick with the good old ideas. The essence of the old ideas was - don’t do to other people what you don’t want done to yourself.
That works out to - don’t lie and steal and murder and screw around.
Remember there really is a god and he’s (she’s) the final judge, not human beings.
Make your parents proud (at least, sort of).
And take a day off.
That’s about it.
