Myths vs Facts [Most are no longer taught how to think]

If we are to ever unbind ourselves from the chains of conventional wisdom, we must first come to understand that we are constantly under assault from government propaganda and government propagandists. Our indoctrination begins at an early age and reaches its peak as we glide through the government indoctrination camps deceptively called public education.

When we are born into a system and we live it for a period of time, we lose our imperative to inquire. We automatically and unconsciously assume that things that are have always been. The system is prescribed.

We accept it, and it becomes a part of us. We don't feel animosity or hostility toward the authority that we are born under. We are all born into conventional wisdom. Every bit of information we get from the very beginning of our existence "sells" us on authority. This goes on through public (non)education and throughout life.

The only acceptable social and moral thing to do then is to accept authority, conform to authority and above all, never question authority, let alone its morality and its modus operandi. Once a person is taught a fact and believes that fact long enough, he or she cannot ponder or contemplate information or a question that challenges the fact. The mind simply cannot process information that conflicts with previously accepted data. Prior conditioning is difficult to challenge.

Psychologists call this quirk of human nature cognitive dissonance. It means the rejection of information not in harmony with previous beliefs.

Here's an example. Conventional wisdom holds that there exists two political parties in America and that they pursue two different agendas. The reality is that there are two names of political parties, but the philosophy and morality of all politicians is the same. Things that are equal to the same thing are equal to each other.

The axiom above brings forth the conclusion that politicians cannot be different and cannot have a different morality than the system and survive as politicians. Therefore, they have to all be the same. The power structure quickly dispenses with a politician who has an honestly opposing morality and philosophy.

If as few as one million Americans knew this truth, the corrupt political system in America would collapse.

Here are a few more mythical ideas we accept as fact, followed by what's really true:

Myth: Government is meant to govern the people

Fact: Government was not created for the people, by the people nor of the people. It was created for and later evolved further for the power and benefit of the elite and their politicians and bureaucrats. Government is not haphazard and bungling. It does everything with careful calculation for the benefit of government and the concealment of its fraud upon the people. It plays one economic class against another, one race against another, and it prostitutes the intellectual elite to conceal the nature of government and its purpose. Government creates the public mind and the public will. It channels human thought, human energy and human production and wealth to itself. It works perfectly for the elite. It is organized crime and organized force at the national and international level. It just doesn't work for the people, it works against them.

Myth: Savings

Fact: This is a myth and a hoax. The money creators cause inflation to melt your savings and retirement while you sleep. Certificates of Deposit and bank accounts do not preserve your savings now — nor will they in the future. In fact, the dollar is inflation. It is created to self-destruct. This is theft by deception. The true meaning of currency destruction with inflation is war upon the people. Instead, if you want your retirement and investments to actually grow, please get the real Investing Rules to Live By.

Myth: Inflation means rising prices.

Fact: Inflation is devaluation of the money through an increase in the supply of money. With more money chasing fewer goods, more and more money is required to make a purchase. Is your house now "worth" $750,000, when it was purchased in 2000 for $175,000? No, your money has far, far less purchasing power. Things are not "worth" more, they cost more because money is worth less.

Myth: America is the land of the free

Fact: When you think of a nation that has millions of citizens under lockdown for illegitimate, dubious or purely political reasons, you probably conjure an image of gulags in Russia, work camps in North Korea, or countries like Iran, or Cuba. Or, maybe some Third World backwater or banana republic dictatorship country might spring to mind.

But the truth is the No. 1 prison nation is the United States. No country incarcerates a higher percentage of its population than the United States. The U.S. houses one-fourth of the world's prison population. The Prison Policy Initiative claims the 2022 prison population for America is almost 2 million people. That's 573 per 100,000 population. 374,000 people are locked up for drug offenses on any given day.

Myth: Your body needs no help

Fact: Impossible with the American diet and the current environment. Eighty percent of Americans are malnourished and the chemical burden we are under requires us to help our bodies with chelation, alkalizing foods, and supplemental nutrients.

Myth: Euthanasia is a quick and painless death.

Fact: Euthanasia can happen over many years as drugs and "immunizations" usually kill slowly. The system can reduce the population without blame if they do it over time so as to separate cause and effect.

Myth: Conventional wisdom is just common sense

Fact: Conventional wisdom is simply what most people believe, not what should be believed. That's because conventional wisdom comes from the news media, public schools, the medical establishment, large churches and the government. It's a lifetime programming process that builds parameters of thought from which few escape.

Becoming immune to mythology

Constant bombardment of word patterns like these penetrate the consciousness, rearranging neuron structure. It is an electro-chemical reaction that dehumanizes the human ego. The result is that man no longer thinks for himself. He thinks the thoughts disseminated to the group. Even though he may not be totally transformed, group thoughts and group dynamics dominate.

This is the esoteric system of American psychiatry. In modern America, if one has an ego, he has a disease that requires treatment. If he questions the mainstream, he is sick, he is "anti-social" and accused of wrongthink. He's a "right-wing fanatic."

We must break free of these myths to become truly wealthy and free. Otherwise, you may become like those "educated" people whose thinking has been sealed within the parameters of education.

Yours for the truth,

9 Survival Recipes That Are Easy To Make


Better than rats and bugs as described yesterday!

So you've beefed up your home security, you've gathered plenty of emergency supplies, and you've stocked your pantry with lots of survival food. Now you're ready to ride out the next disaster... Or are you?

My late uncle, who was a super at a public school system always said the same-too many schools are simple indoctrination cams & US kids are poorly prepared as a result.

Kids in Germany seem to have a better and broader education than Americans despite the fact America spends more on public education than any other nation...does this mean teachers are not very good at their job?
