A great look at the machinations behind the scenes and the people who wield incredible power behind the scenes in our government and by slopping their mass to one side of the boat or the other can steer the great ship America to horrible ends.
When The Pentagon is spending billions per year and employing nearly 30,000 people purely for the purpose of “recruitment, public relations and advertising” it might help to have a little healthy skepticism.
This is why we have a republic, not a democracy. Democracies are ruled by the voice of the mob (the 51st percentile), not the rights of an individual in a free society to life, liberty and property. In this case the mob is preventing a woman in a wheelchair from leaving a “conservative” event because they have blockaded the doors.
Hearing the laughter in the background near the end of the video, it’s sounds like there is some heavy spiritual stuff happening here as well.
This makes me think of my friend David Weber at KingDavidsTable.com; he’s been talking lately about the power of “remitting other’s sins” and how we can use this to create profound shifts in people and society (I know it’s a sharp turn, stay with me).
In the remitting process we take another’s bad behavior on as our own, and apologize to God on their behalf as if the sin were our own, to free the person from their bondage and judgement.
11-8-11 Update: after discussing this a bit with the aforementioned David Weber, I should make an edit: remitting for someone else’s wicked ways might actually bring judgement upon them–not free from from it. In this way steel could be forged from iron, and the trial the God may bring to bear to judge someone may be very positive in the long run. Also, the line about freeing them from bondage is too black and white; rather the remittance process can be a catalyst to “freedom.” Where “freedom” is defined as the progression towards God, and righteousness.
Although foolish to most people, this is a technique that acknowledges the wisdom of The Cross; that through our own sacrifices and trials, we can slice through the “spiritual wickedness in high places” to get to the core of a person’s actions and cause profound waves in the spirit world.
David talks about remittance it in more detail here.
I bring it up now because if we are to manifest lasting change in the world, we need to use this technique far more frequently than we currently are and demonstrate true people-power democracy.
Here’s my crack at it: “God, I recognize that in reaction to the madness I see in the world, I’ve tried to control people around me and have been blind to your plan. I bring my own flaws to your altar along with the protesters in the #Occupy movement so that we can both be dealt with and the spiritual wickedness at work behind the scenes can be purged and bound by the Almighty Spirit of Christ. In the name and character of Christ I command it to be done.”
If we assume that the police and government do not like the #Occupy movement, and are therefore likely to try to stop it, what are the best ways of achieving this?
How about some violence that could justify a larger scale police/military force? (Maybe even martial law itself)
Police around the world have a long history of posing as protestors and often create a false-flag events that are used as a pretext or justification of violent action against what would have been a peaceful, Lawful assembly.
Whether you agree or not, this is an interesting insight into the protests. Taibbi’s still working on his street cred with me, but usually I like his stuff.
Maybe I’ve just been biased in my poor perception of Uygur since he is an MSNBC host. This is a great segment. The whole vid is honest and objectively details the zombie government we have ruling over us while supporting capitalism and denouncing Marx.
His Obama critique after 8:20 is fantastic.
Apparently he has a major announcement coming on Wednesday and a plan to “restart” our country “Constitutionally” and create real change. I’ll be listening in for the details.
In the midst of these days of angst, worry, fear and doubt we can foster a deep and granite-carved Faith and a trust that surely there is a plan in place “from above” and even the forces at work “from below” are here to guide us to the Truth and a relationship with our Creator and His Son, Jesus Christ. If you’re in doubt, pray and see what you get back. Leave your perceptions at the door and just ask for God to give you something to show He’s real. I wasn’t disappointed.
Have peace; only from within the eye of the hurricane can we pull others to safety—in mind, body and spirit.
