1929 Magazine Article – Nothing New Under The Sun


(Alan Watt) Today, people are so overwhelmed with the amount of information and disinformation and just sheer data. They don’t know what to make of it all. They often end up in a bigger confusion than the one they started with, chasing rainbows, false leads and trying to make sense. The human mind, each individual has a logic which depends upon incoming data.

When you can understand this concept, you can also interfere with it if you have power. You can encourage each individual at the bottom level to be completely concerned with their immediate environment. –Their little area. –Their homes, their area, the people around them, their town. Everything they need immediately for day-to-day survival, you encourage that and you can cut them off from bigger realities beyond, by either giving them false data concerning the big picture of the world in general or even their country. You simply withhold data and encourage the trivia.

That’s what most television stations, your local television stations, are all about. That’s their job, to make you think everything you need to know and worry about and care about you is just around you; and that used to be true, at one time, to a great extent.

For over 100 years we’ve had, at least the public have been given forms of communication from telephone and radio and television followed up. Long before this was decided to be given to the public, it was debated at very high levels whether the public should have it in the first place

When you look at Francis Bacon’s “New Atlantis,” a fictional story written in the 1500’s, published in 1602, concerning a future society which would have its headquarters in the West. They meant America, of course. They call it Solomon’s Island, run on virtue, and a secret society running the whole show, comprised of high intellectuals and scientists. There’s no way that Bacon could have imagined a society which powered itself with an energy which could give off the light of the sun. That’s very familiar, isn’t it, if you think of nuclear energy? People think, “That’s impossible. He couldn’t have imagined that.” He couldn’t have imagined that, you’re quite right, in the days of wind sails, canvas sails, the horse and cart and a candle to write by. We could not have imagined that at all, and neither did he, but then atomic energy was speculated upon thousands of years ago, if you go into the writings of the Atomist Organizations in Ancient Greece. These supposed “intellectuals,” simply because they had nothing better to do but pass their time wearing their white robes, and chatting away, and speculating that everything’s composed of these minute particles that spun around. Worlds within worlds called ATOMS, which is just a play on Adam, by the way, the Microcosm. Everything is interrelated in this big joke.

The trick in all ages is to keep real high sciences—which are constantly being investigated by special teams, all down through the ages—secret from the public. To have ultimate control, you can never share all your high knowledge, because sharing power means you lose power, if you want to be dominant. Yet, there’s no doubt that Francis Bacon’s book was published at that time. Not the updated versions that spin in aliens and all that kind of stuff. That’s the New Age spin that the elite have promoted to confuse us even further, because it’s much easier to believe the game’s over if aliens superior to you run the whole world and always have. That’s called “psychological warfare.” The purpose being that you’d give up before anything starts. Actually, “New Atlantis” was written along with other books like Moore’s book on his utopia, along the same lines of this elitist utopic society run by the intellectuals; those who have the right to rule the rest by their vast intellectual powers.

Sometimes they use authors like H.G. Wells. Today, there’s a whole bunch of them being put out there to give us predictive programming; the idea being that if we accept it subconsciously as a possibility, then they can guide you with possibility upon possibility; and then, when it becomes reality, you think it’s a natural evolution. However, it’s nothing of the kind. It’s planned that way in advance and it’s predictive programming.

Once in while, the elite in Britain, this elite being a very, very old elite called “The Establishment,” they’re there regardless of what party yells at each other across the Parliamentary floor. The elite decide what’s to be done. They pick the top politicians. It doesn’t matter about the ones down below. They’re allowed to compete for their little share in the booty of the public purse and fame and glory and high contracts when they leave for lobbyist jobs. The ones at the top are always picked in advance and groomed before the public even hear their names, as long as the top cabinet below to The Royal Institute, then everything is hunky-dory.

I’m going to read an article written in a magazine. It was written in the 1920’s. Think about this. I’ll tell you at the end which one it is and where to find it. On the cover, you’ll see a young British Lord who couldn’t have been more than 22, with his big long braided wig on. In the House of Lords, the guys who have hereditary peer-ships wear these long wigs and they get their robes with the ermine. They dress like something from the 1700’s. No one has ever explained the purpose of these particular wigs, but if you count the curls going up and down, you see the degrees. He has this young arrogant face, as they all do, very solemn, stern, arrogant and all knowing.

This is Lord Birkenhead and this is what he says, and he says all of the following because he’s allowed in to a higher circle of science which already existed, at least the basics of it did. He was let in on “the know.” The ones at the bottom that the public hear about are doing research. They don’t know about the findings of those above them done long ago.

This is from February 1929.

Babies will be produced by chemists in laboratories;”

He’s talking about the year 2029.

“…the entire institution of marriage will be changed; we will all live to be 150; no one will need to work more than two hours a day; agriculture will be abolished except as a hobby and all foodstuffs will be produced synthetically; man will be able to alter the geography of climate of the world.

Think about that.

“Coal mining will be an extinct industry. A 48-hour day will come into being by retarding the rotations of the earth. Sitting in our homes we will see and hear events the world over.”

1929. I’m going to continue here. Remember, this guy isn’t sitting with a crystal ball. He’s not channeling. He doesn’t have a medium next to him from his channeling Zeta Reticuli or some far away place.

Here’s the story:

“A century hence. It appears probable that the application of scientific discoveries will have altered the conditions of human life at least as much as they’ve done in the past hundred years. A child born in 1829 arrived in a world that was just beginning to exploit the steam engine in which electricity was the useless byway of a few professors where anesthetics and antiseptics were unknown.

“A child of 2029 looking back on 1929 will consider it as primitive and quaint as 1829 seems to the children of the present day. Our means of travel, our sources of wealth, our medicine and even our ideas will change as drastically during the next century as they did in the course of the last. Applied physics, which has given us the steam engine, the internal combustion motor as well as wireless telephones and all the many other practical uses of electrical energy will certainly make prodigious advances before the year 2029.

“At the moment however, the theoretical basis of physics rests in an undetermined state. Physics is on the brink of a new synthesis, a fresh simplification and restatement of fundamental ideas. This when it comes, and it cannot long be delayed must radically change all our assumptions concerning time, space and the nature of change. Such a revolution of ideas must be accounted among the most important effects of science upon human life in the next century. But, it is of course very difficult to predict what direction this change of ideas will take. Until now, Newton who states physical theory one cannot determine how his restatement will react upon the everyday world. It is easier to prophesy concerning the material changes which will be wrought by applied physics in the next hundred years. The best scientific opinion believes that before 2029 physicists will have solved the problem of supplying the world with limitless amounts of cheap power.

“At present, we derive the energy which drives the wheels of industry from coal and oil. Both these substances are won from nature at the expenses of much money and vast stores of muscular energy, nor are their supplies inexhaustible. By means of the most efficient methods, moreover, a pound of coal can only be made to yield energy of the order of one horsepower for one hour. Yet, locked up in the atoms which constitute a pound of water, there is an amount of energy equivalent to ten million horsepower hour. There is no question that this colossal source of energy exists; but as yet physicists do not know how to release it, or having done so, how to make it perform useful work. This problem will be solved before 2029. Some investigator, at present in his cradle or unborn, will discover the match with which to light this bonfire, or the detonator needed to cause this terrific explosion.

“The consequences of tapping such stupendous sources of cheap energy are almost illimitable. For the first time in his history, man will be armed with sufficient power to undertake operations on a cosmic scale. It will be opened to him radically to alter the geography or climate of the world. By utilizing some 50,000 tons of water, the amount displayed by a larger liner, it would be possible to remove Ireland to the deeper portion of the Atlantic Ocean. The heat obtainable from the same quantity of water would suffice to maintain the Polar Regions at the temperature of the Sahara for a thousand years.”

Think about it.

“The liberation of this energy naturally will revolutionize travel and transport. Engines weighing one ounce for each horsepower they develop will become practical possibilities; and a power plant of six hundred horsepower will carry fuel for a thousand hours, working in a tank no bigger than a fountain pen.

Concerning the nature of the vehicles for which such engines will provide the motive power, is it rash to prophesy. Passengers will travel in enormously swift aeroplanes, which by 2029 will ascend and descend vertically. Goods will be carried cheaply and rapidly by land or sea, propelled by motors whose fuel bill will be almost nil.

The coming of this new energy obviously will be accompanied by acute social problems. Its adaptation to industry will entail for example the final extinction of coal mining. Since however it cannot but vastly reduce the cost of oil manufacturers it is hoped that the new wealth it creates will enable governments adequately to provide for the millions whose livelihood it destroys. Some authoritative scientists do not believe that the solution of the power problem will be reached along these lines consider either the winds or the tides will be forced to yield up their energy. Water power is to unevenly distributed over the earth’s surface and too much affected by seasonal variations ever to become the principal source of the world’s energy, but the winds are never still and the tides flow and ebb with unvarying precision. If the winds were harnessed, we could produce a super abundance of cheap power. During stormy weather the surplus energy could be stored in a variety of ways and so be available during calms.”

I’ll break for a second here to tell you that this character, this Lord had been given access to a future already decided upon. The reason being he was a hereditary peer of the realm, a Lord who gains access to the business plan; and they never change their plans.

“The exploitation of title energy presents difficulties which are yet to be solved in a satisfactory manner. These difficulties however are not those of principle but of technique and of the wealth and the serious engineering attention of the world were focused on the question for ten years, there’s no doubt that they would be overcome. The tides of the Bay of Fundy alone could supply the whole of North America with electrical energy by utilizing title energy to any large extent, which will diminish the speed of the earth’s rotation. As it is, the tides act as a break upon the rotation of the earth.”

That’s true. As we spin, it’s almost like a drag as it catches up and tries to catch up. For every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s the old theory.

To continue:

“As it is, the tides act as a brake upon the rotation of the earth. Tidal friction occurs principally in the Bering Sea, which divides Alaska from Siberia. Its present effect is negligible, since it does but lengthens the day by a fraction less than a second in the course of each century.

“If sufficient energy were extracted from the tides to supply every imaginable future development of human enterprise with power, this braking effect would not be greatly increased. Many millions of years would elapse before the day grew as long as our present week. Five thousand years takes us back to the dawn of recorded human history.”

That’s his little lie, because he’s well aware it’s much older.

“So that even a tenth part of 1,000,000 years carries us forward beyond the reach of imagination. We need not therefore, grow alarmed that by harnessing the tides we shall so retard the rotation of the earth as to embarrass our remotest descendants. But the forty-eighthour day is a possibility in the far future. During the next hundred years, applied physics will certainly develop wireless telephony and television beyond our present most imaginative expectations. By 2029 it should be possible for any person sitting at home to be present at no matter what distant event stereoscopic television…”

This is before the public got TV, remember, even mono.

“…in full natural colors and perfected wireless telephony will enable him to see and hear any event which is broadcast as effectively as if he stood beside the transmitting apparatus. Such developments must influence the future of politics, but by their aid it will be feasible once more to revive that form of democracy which flourished in the city-states of ancient Greece. By 2029, the chosen spokesmen of each political party will be able to address every voter as effectively as they now can address the House of Commons and so the electorate itself rather than its representatives made decide each vital political issue.”

They’ve got to give you a bit of icing on the cake to make you believe it and want to eat the cake.

“After the spokesman of each party has had his or her say the votes for the entire country could be recorded and counted by mechanisms installed in telephone exchanges. Within 20 minutes from the end of the last speech the will of the national jury on any subject will be ascertained and announced.”

He’s talking about computer voting.

“Applied chemistry has not affected human life in a manner comparable with the changes produced by physical research. So far the ordinary man’s concern chemistry is only useful to him when it discovers new desirable substances or discovers a means of synthesizing material more cheaply than is produced in nature. In the past, chemists have enriched the resources of humanity with new metals and dyes, drugs, explosives and other substances useful in industry on private life.

“By 2029, thousands more, such new substances will be available. Aluminum will be cheaper than pig iron is today malleable and unbreakable glass will be a common place of domestic life. It’s also been suggested that chemical research will turn to the discovery of new physiologically pleasant substances. At present civilized mankind has discovered and adopted in the three such substances such as tobacco, alcohol and caffeine for tea and coffee. These certainly have added enormously to the amenities of existence and Dr. J.B.S. Haldane has proposed that chemists should seriously consider a search for many more such additions to human enjoyment.

“Most chemical substances are either disagreeable or dangerous in their physiological effects. Though a small number, not more than a few thousand are valuable to medicine. Should chemistry in the next hundred years be able to discover a dozen substances as pleasant and as harmless as tobacco each producing a different effect on the consumer it would have earned the thanks of every hard worked man and woman in the world.”

They love to dope us all, you see.

“Any developments in physics and chemistry which recently made and predicted to occur before 2029 do no more than alter the accidentals of human existence and biology, however developments may be predicted which will change the whole nature of life as we experience it today. Even those who know least about the confidently expect prodigious advances from medicine and surgery in the near future and their faith will not be in vain. The abolition of epidemic disease by 2029 is fairly certain as is the discovery of cures for such scourges as cancer and tuberculosis.”

That’s true. They do have all the cures. It’s just that the public will never see them.

“Complete and prolonged local anesthesia will become practicable so that not only will operations be painless but the patient will feel no pain afterwards as a result of them. Such an advance also entails completely painless childbirth. Biologists by 2029 will have learned the secrets of the living chemistry of the human body or at least enough of it to achieve startling results. Rejuvenation will be an ordinary and well recognized matter of a few injections at appropriate intervals.”

Certainly not for you, boys and girls, I can assure you that.

“The desire to keep old age at bay has ever been one of the dreams of humanity. At last, we can predict that it will be achieved. This mortal must put off immortality by extending the length of his days on earth. The attraction of such an idea, especially to women, who will no longer grow old quickly, is far too clear to require emphasis. But the universal practice of rejuvenation will be accompanied by grave social problems, the least of which would be the immensely increasing population. Suppose it possible to guarantee 150 years of life to every healthy child. How will the youths of twenty be able to compete in the professions or in business or against vigorous men still in their prime at 120 with a century of experience on which to draw? The benefit to humanity, which will accrue if the lives of men of genius are so prolonged, is obvious. Before 2029, biologists will have solved some of the mysteries of human heredity. Heredity is determined by certain ‘genes’ or units, concerning which science already knows much. They are minute bodies, so small that if a hen’s egg were magnified to the size of the world, one of the genes in it would lie on a fair-sized dining table. When biologists can control these they will be able to control heredity.

This, remember, is 1929, you know before they discovered a lot of stuff.

“Most probably by 2029 a clever young man will consider his fiancée’s hereditary complexion before proposing marriage…”

He’s talking about eugenics here.

“…and the young woman of that day will refuse him because he has inherited a gene from his father which will predispose their children to quarrelsomeness.”

He’s talking about behavior you see, personal behavior. It’s interesting he doesn’t touch on the physical disability part. These guys are eugenicists. This is the elite talking here.

“By intelligent combination of suitable genes it will be possible to predict with reasonable certainly that truly brilliant children shall be born of a marriage.”

That’s called “genetic enhancement” today. They had that term back then, but we didn’t know about that. We’re kept in the dark. He’s talking in the days of the dirigible balloon and the bi-plane. He’s talking about taking out the bad genes. You know the inferior types that might make you quarrelsome or disobedient to your superiors. That’s what he’s talking about, it was all discussed even before this guy was born that’s writing this.

“It is possible, however, that by 2029 the whole question of human hereditary and eugenics will be swallowed up by the prospect of ectogenetic birth, By this is meant the development of a child from a fertilized cell outside its mother’s body in a glass vessel filled with serum on a laboratory bench. Such a proceeding is neither incredible nor indeed impossibly remote. The result of much research shows that the connection between a mother and her growing child are purely chemical; there is no valid reason why one day biologists should not be able perfectly to imitate that chemical connection in the laboratory.”

What it means really is you’ll be born and immediately you go “ga-ga-ga” and start trying to cuddle your Petri dish as your mother or the bench you’re on; because this love bonding stuff is, just you know, it’s all ‘nonsense’. It’s purely chemical. This was all decided about long, long before the public heard about the little tidbits that we’re given from the ‘60’s onwards, as though it was a brand new idea. Here’s this guy in 1929 writing about it, because he didn’t come up with this either. He was let in on “the know.” It was all decided in the previous century, the 1800’s.

‘The possibility of ectogenetic children will naturally arouse the fieriest antagonism. Religious bodies of many different creeds will rally their adherence to fight such a fundamental biological invention. In fact, the near mention of its possibility here may strike many readers as gratuitously disgusting. Nevertheless the thing is possible and since it’s possible it is certain that scientists will be deterred by no persecution from straining after it.”

All the reactions of the public are already figured out in advance and overcome when they announce these things. All the debating or the problems they foresee are debated and overcome before they tell us any of this stuff, and then retell us later on as though it was brand new again.

“Should ectogenesis ever become an established part of human society its effects will be shattering. Primarily it will separate reproduction from marriage and the latter institution will become wholly changed. Further, the character of the future inhabitants of any state could be determined by the government which happened temporarily to enjoy power.”

Remember too, this character is the same age group as Aldous Huxley that wrote “Brave New World” in the 1930’s. They all knew this stuff because they were in on “the know.” All this stuff they’re talking about had already been done secretly a long time ago.

“Further, the character of the future inhabitants of any state could be determined by the government…”

Further, I’ll say that again.

“…the character of the future inhabitants of any state could be determined by the government which happened temporarily to enjoy power by regulating the choice of the ectogenic parents of the next generation. The cabin of the future could breed a nation of industrial dullards.”

That means morons, folks.

“…or live in the population with fifty thousand charmingly irresponsible mural painters.”

This is a little high-class joke, chuckle, chuckle.

“A further immediate consequence of ectogenesis would be a plea that society should be allowed to produce the human types it most needs instead of being forced to absorb all the unsuitable types which happen to be born.”

Eugenics again and the planned society, arranged long ago, long before you were even born or your parents were born.

“If it were possible to breed a race of strong healthy creatures intelligent to perform intricate drudgery yet lacking all ambition, what ruling class would resist the temptation? Many of the arguments brought against slavery would be powerless in such a case, for the ectogenic slave of the future would not feel his bonds. Every impulse which makes slavery degrading and irksome to ordinary humanity would be removed from his mental equipment. He wouldn’t care as long as happiness would be his task. He would be the exact human counterpart of the worker bee.”

Oh, where have we heard that before, going all the way back to ancient Egypt? Oh boy, oh boy, as above, so below.

“Only the arguments of religion could be used to prevent this evolution.”

Evolution, here we go.

“His emancipation could never be considered, for in freedom he would find only crushing boredom and misery.

I’ve got to work. I’ve got to work. I’ve got to just work a hundred hours. I just have to do it to make me happy.

“It seems improbable however that the future developments of industry will call for such a being to tend it wheels. Production will become so cheap, and barring political international upheavals, wealth will accumulate to such an extent that the ectogenetic robot will never be needed.”

The humans now are robots. These are Golem.

“It is far more likely that men will work as machine minders for one or two hours a day and be free to devote the rest of their energies to whatever form of activity they enjoy. Such a condition obviously presupposes that all drudgery, not only the drudgery of the coal mine and the machine shop will be abolished by science. It predicates the end of agriculture as the fundamental industry upon which human life rests.”

Think about that.

“Probably biology in alliance with chemistry will make an end of agriculture even sooner and the cheapening of production will render a ten hour maximum week universal in the workshops of the world. By 2029 agriculture if not abolished will be in decay at least in civilized lands.

They knew that back then you see and long before.

“The first step towards the end of agriculture will be the production of benevolent bacteria able to fix the atmospheric nitrogen which is essential to the growth of plant life. Such bacilli never could develop naturally since many of their ancestors will be unable to live except under entirely artificial conditions in the laboratory; and when the active nitrogen fixing bacteria are at last hardened off and allowed to multiply in agricultural land, their immediate effect would be to act as a super efficient manure by their aid. Five or even ten years of wheat will grow where one grows now, while the pasture which now feeds ten beasts will feed fifty.

“Such a development will of course be watched with anxious eyes by all governments. Food prices will slump. Millions of laborers all over the world will find their livelihood vanished. Hard on the heels of this development will come the perfection of synthetic foodstuffs. At present, we nourish ourselves by a curiously wasteful and roundabout method. Solar energy is absorbed by plants and stored by them in their structures mainly in the form of cellulose. The human body is unable to digest cellulose and so to extract nourishment from it. Many animals however aided by obliging bacteria are able to perform this feat and keep herds of sheep, cattle and pigs all on the base new task of digesting cellulose and transforming it into the meat and milk upon which we live. Already it is impossible to convert indigestible cellulose into digestible sugar. But as yet, the cost of the operation prevents its being carried out except as a laboratory experiment. Such processes as this will certainly be further investigated and developed so that by 2029 starch and sugar, two of our most valuable foods will be as cheap as sand or sawdust today.

“Concerning proteins, the other most important human foods, two possibilities exist. Either they too will be produced synthetically or else the more highly prized varieties of animal foods such for example as beef steak or chickens breast will be grown in suitable media in the laboratory. From one parent’s steak of choice tenderness it will be possible to grow as large and as juicy steak as can be desired, so long as the parent is supplied with the correct chemical nourishment. It will continue to grow indefinitely and perhaps eternally. Whenever it is sufficiently large, a few pounds can be cut from it and sent to market.

“Synthetic foods and the production of animal tissues in vitro will finally set at rest those tissues of those timid minds which prophesied a day when the earth’s resources will not feed her children. But if all the inhabitable surface of the globe were inconveniently crowded, the millions of mankind could still be feed to repletion by such means. This second revolution in food production will consummate the decay of agriculture, which can only survive as a rich man’s hobby. Probably however, the synthetic foods of the next century will be so much more easily digested and appetizing that their present equivalents that agriculture will survive only in historical romances. Since the beginnings of history the city has been the parasite of the countryside.”

Boy, he’s right there.

“In 2029 science will make the city a self-supporting unit and Britain the land of laboratories capable of feeding no matter how many millions of mouths without importing a ton of foodstuffs. Many will bewail such a prospect for they insist that a flourishing agricultural peasantry is the only sound basis of any political life. It will be necessary when agriculture goes into irrevocable decay to plan the evolution of a stable industrial society. Such an undertaking should not lie beyond human wit. The agricultural basis of society, which has existed for so many centuries, was itself evolved from nomads and savages to reconcile such folk with a peaceful static life of the husbandman’s need far more violent adjustment, than will be necessary to urbanize the descents of the world’s present agriculturalists.

“It’s conceivable that not all these changes will have occurred by 2029. The progress of scientific discovery is checkered and subject to no ascertainable regularity or period. In many instances, an applied science after a few years of violent progress stagnates or at best is advanced by small refinements and simplifications. The history of the locomotive steam engine provides an illustration. During the last century railroad trains have grown steadily longer and heavier. In consequence, larger and more powerful engines have evolved to draw them to their destinations, but the huge locomotive of today differs only in size and power from its parent of the 1860’s and 1870’s. No new principle of any importance has been introduced into its design or construction.

“A similar stagnation may overtake the development of airplanes or of wireless telephony. Such halts in the progress of any applied science however are comparative and not final. A fresh mind produces a new idea or a simplification which inaugurates another period of rapid and speeding activity. I have assumed therefore that the rate of progress in applied physics, chemistry and biology during the next hundred years will be maintained approximately at its present level. It may even be greatly accelerated by the ever-increasing interest in scientific research on the part of industrialists and governments.

“Nevertheless, unless science is able to change their ideas no less rapidly than our environment, some of the developments of which I have hinted may not come to pass. Unless, for example the ideas of Asiatic peoples have drastically changed, it will impossible to stamp out epidemic disease from the world. But it is not self evident that all applications of scientific discovery deserve the support of intelligent men and women; because science has benefited humanity in the past, there’s no reason why it always should do so in the future. A biological discovery may well plunge the world into such a catastrophe as it would destroy civilization for a thousand years. As you are reading these words, some disinterested researcher may detonate an atomic explosion which will involve the world and reduce it to a flaring vortex of incandescent gas.”

There you have that one. That is from the Cosmopolitan Magazine, February 1929 when it was owned by Randolph Hearst. This little talk on our future, with much of what we’re seeing happen today and much of this information re-released in the 1960’s and onwards, as though it was brand new. It was written in 1929 by Lord Birkenhead of England, one of those “in the know.” You’ll see his photograph on the first page of his talk in the magazine, with his big wig on and all his curls of this artificial rug that he wears and the arrogant upper class official appearance that he puts on there. I think they must practice that from birth, and a little emblem of Saturn on the left, Old Kronos, who eats his children. Then you have two lighting bolts behind him, which turned out eventually to be the sign and the symbols of the Nazis. What does it all have in common? I do wonder.

Science is not new. All the things we’re told about are obsolete. All the stuff that we use is obsolete; and in fact, before we get any of it, there’s massive debates at very high levels as to whether they should give it to the public. There’s always a material purpose in doing so, as we snap up all the goodies and say, “my goodness, isn’t this fun, fun, fun. I can play longer and more,” and yet we’re all brought into a catch-22, where we can’t think for ourselves anymore because it’s all done for us. Many people in today’s world are quite happy with that arrangement. They haven’t consciously thought it through. In fact, most people (and it’s true) don’t really consciously think much through it all. Their ideas are marketed to them and downloaded into them, as efficiently as a program is downloaded into the computer; because essentially, we are just “walking computers,” in a sense.

You can also detect the double-speak of Lord Birkenhead as he talks about methods of controlling the population growth. On the other hand, he talks about millions of people being able to eat because of they can easily synthesize foods. The double-speak. He didn’t want to panic the general herd too quickly. He left that to his later offspring and relatives who’ve been drumming the drums, since about the ‘60’s onwards, about crisis, crisis; too many people. “My goodness, what shall we do?” Hence all the abortion clinics opened up all over the place and free sex was promoted; free love in order to create the problem to give the solution and need more abortion clinics and legalize it all. Before you know it, a fetus (which is a baby) is just a wart and you can get rid of that, can’t you?

There’s nothing happens in society that isn’t planned long ago and debated long ago by those who already ruled the world and ruled this system. This one financial system of commerce, working and laboring, and buying and selling that we are all taught to grow up and compete in. When he gave the speech, of course, the agriculturalists couldn’t really picture being out of work, even if it was “ha-ha, that’s silly. We’ll always be rearing these cows here.” We’ve already seen the agribusinesses being promoted. These big foundations and businesses that have buildings opposite every capital of the world and they lobby all the politicians. Most of them either having been politicians themselves, or they will be after they leave their CEOs position back into politics, back and forth like ping-pong balls. We’re under this corporate fascistic system already; and we have been really all our lives.

The purpose of life has never been discussed by the ordinary people. They’ve never had a say in anything, to be honest with you. Even when we think we’re winning a little bit and getting a little bit more of the material world, the goodies, even the things you need to survive have a temporary respite. They’re already designing the plug to be pulled a little further down the road. So the Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away—Lords like Lord Birkenhead.

If you’re allowed to clear land and create a farm with hard work and sweat and tears, it’s all right; because once you’ve done it, they’ll simply tax it from you to get you off the land or put you out with massive fines because you can’t keep up with the ever increasing standards—building standards and codes and land codes et cetera. Yes, two or three generations down the road they can take it back from you. You’ve created some real estate and the big agri-businesses move in and say, “thank you very much for your hard work and now it’s ours for peanuts.”

Remember, the releases of this Birkenhead are just the same kind of releases of Francis Bacon or Moore (the “Utopia”) and many others who have been given inside information from higher sciences. Not from the professors down, but much higher up where they’d already been investigating many different areas to do with everything we now think they’re investigating today. It’s all been done a long time ago. That’s why they all it research: RE-search. At the bottom level, they don’t know that it’s all been done before by much higher levels that are kept secret from everyone, except those at the top.

That’s how power really is. It doesn’t share itself. It gives you an illusion occasionally of having choices, but in reality all of your decisions were made a long time ago with “your betters.” You know those people who are your betters, because “we have better genes than you,” you see. They’re not Levis. They’re good genes [jeans], better ones, old genes that are mated up with other good genes. These genes last a long while before they wear out, obviously, and they’re still here today, as they mate each other up and marry their power and add to power and money; and, of course, the psychopathic trait of the gene that they have is passed on to their offspring. They’re not as silly as people would like to make out. They have a natural instinct for power and control and dominating others, sometimes with the most pleasant faces—another gift of the psychopath. Always depending on the fact that ordinary normal people with empathy, with consciences will believe them, whatever they say. They cannot believe (the ordinary people with empathy) that there are such evil cruel people who would do the most horrific things to not just us, but anyone across the planet—because the end justifies the means, and they sleep well at night. That’s why they get away with it. They start wars. They’ll continue wars. They profit from wars.

The structure of society is held together by natural laws, which are well understood and exploited by those that know the sciences. Formulas that worked thousands of years ago are RE-applied in the same sequence, always with the same results with the populations. We believe what we’re told. We do what we’re told and then we look towards these benefactors at the top, these superior people to take care of us. Many people like it that way when they’re reared in this socialistic system of expert rule, scientific rule. We have no time to go and play while these weighty decisions are all made for us by the superior ones above us. We’re well managed and dictated to, from cradle to grave, and it’s getting worse all the time as each department above us of bureaucracy shows their teeth and shows their power with more and more powers being demanded over the public.

This is a battle for the heart and soul and the mind, and the right to decide a future for ourselves. Where do you stand on this?
