Before presenting the proposal, I feel it would be helpful to point out the need, in case there are those reading this who can’t see one.
By now it should be obvious to everyone that the systems in place and processes at work within those systems aren’t working in favour of the long-term general well-being of the planet and its inhabitants. Also obvious is that the way things are set up and run only benefits a small percentage, those positioned at the top of the sociopolitical pyramid. Dictators and democratically elected representatives alike seem to be doing everything they can to enrich themselves and entrench their position whilst denying the rest of the population the freedoms and rights that are ours as sovereign individuals and co-inhabitants.
Several notable and perceptive people have pointed out that those world controllers perched at the top of the pyramid display mentalities and behaviour that can be accurately as psychopathic. John Lennon, before his murder by Mark David Chapman said, “Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.”
The following two articles provide data that supports the statement.
THE PSYCHOPATH – The Mask of Sanity. A Special Research Project of the Quantum Future School
Twilight of the Psychopaths by Dr. Kevin Barrett
New York Times bestselling author William Rivers Pitt (War On Iraq (with Scott Ritter), The Greatest Sedition is Silence) said, ‘The People versus the Powerful is the oldest story in human history. At no point in history have the Powerful wielded so much control. At no point in history has the active and informed involvement of the People, all of them, been more required.’
A statement in the appendix of Psyclone states that ‘Empires come and go. Aside from their moral bankruptcy, it’s been the combined actions of little people that have brought them crashing down, like termites undermining the foundations of a building.’
All around the world we see little people, those lower levels of the pyramid, realising their situation and reconnecting with their sociopolitical voice and power and getting involved in creating a change.
This proposal centres around another much-needed change that I feel we, all of us, every single one of us, can take part in bringing about.
As pointed out by Dr Barrett in the above article civilisation is largely the creation of psychopaths. All civilisations have been based on slavery and “warfare”, the latter term being a euphemism for mass murder. He goes on to describe the recipe for civilisation thus:
1) Use lies and brainwashing to create an army of controlled, systematic mass murderers;
2) Use that army to enslave large numbers of people (i.e. seize control of their labour power and its fruits);
3) Use that slave labour power to improve the brainwashing process (by using the economic surplus to employ scribes, priests, and PR men). Then go back to step one and repeat the process.
A simplistic description you might say, but it describes a process that can be seen being perfected by, going back to the earlier example given, the US. As pointed out in Psyclone, war is the US’s biggest industry and export.
Fascism has more properly been called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power. When looked at from an overall perspective, the activities of the Military-Industrial-Governmental (congressional/parliamentary) Complex provide the biggest threat to the welfare of the planet and all those living on it. The raping and pillaging of lives, rights, and resources across the world, and direct and indirect domino-effect of the war industry is the single biggest travesty of and threat to our species.
Seven years ago US attorney David G. Mills described what has only become clearer and more obvious now in the article It’s the Corporate State, Stupid. In it he quotes a study by Dr Lawrence Britt The 14 Defining Characteristics of Fascism which include:
- Disdain for the recognition of Human Rights
- The identification of scapegoats or enemies as a unifying cause
- Supremacy of the military
- Cronyism and governmental corruption
- Control of the media
- Disdain for intellectuals and the arts (which should ring bells with those protesting about recent cuts in education funding)
So what can we do about it? If we go back to the pyramid analogy, which isn’t so much analogy as an accurate representation of the system, it can be seen that the foundation of the structure atop which the select few enjoy the most is the wide base comprised of that majority who struggle with the least. Here I’ll quote from Psyclone again:
‘That’s why we’ve got the media, the microwave muzzle, Anti-Terrorist laws, Patriot Acts, et cetera. If the lower levels of the pyramid got restless, it could bring their carefully managed structure down.’
‘Yeah, crushing a lot of little people at the bottom.’
‘We’re not talking civil war, Dan; we’re talking civil disobedience. No meaningful social reforms in history were brought about without a struggle. No struggle, no progress. Those who say they want freedom and yet argue against agitation want crops without ploughing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. The struggle may be moral or physical or both, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.
‘And anyway, the routine functioning of this society is far more violent than any reaction against it could ever be. Think of the number of children that the present system allows to starve to death each day as a result of foreign policies, embargoes, and national debt, and then add to that the thousands it actively shoots and bombs.’
Which doesn’t answer the question what can we do about it. That’s because the answer, or rather answers, can’t be summed up in a convenient soundbite-sized chunk.
Relatively recent history provides an example of what people can do to slow the march of the Military-Industrial-Governmental monster. Back in the 1960′s and 70′s conscientious people took it on themselves to bring an end to the war in Vietnam, a war with many parallels to that going on in Iraq and Afghanistan today. The Conscientious Objectors section of the Centre of the Psyclone details some historical and current anti-war actions.
Psyclone the novel and the Centre of the Psyclone are the result of around five years of research, development, and production. The whole reason for devoting the last five years of my life to the project was an attempt to create change by connecting people with information that was and is being kept away from them; information such as that provided in the Solutions section, where you can find over a dozen sub-sections that detail ways we can all create positive change individually and globally.
