VIVENDI wasn't the original owner of MP3.com, but they took the website over just after they sucked the original owners empty. A look at the complete story reveals the true intend of the musical industrial complex and the way they try to achieve their goal.
Let's start at the beginning.
In about 1998, 1999, there was a sort of "golden age" of MP3. The format looked very promising because it had created a whole new generation of artists. Sites such as MP3.com began to make it possible for artists to receive a royalty over their downloads. If someone listened to or downloaded your music, you would get a few cents. Other programs were created to have your music heard and get some royalty payment.
All these things were very good for the Artist and the Listener. I could see that I was approaching a situation in which this could totally provide me with my daily bread. The listener could listen to music without having to buy it first; I would have direct response to my releases.
In this same time, the MP3 format was also used in a different way. People would start to record their records and rip the CD's, put everything in MP3 format on their computer and use software to exchange music with others. One of the first pieces of software that enabled people to do that, was called "Napster", perhaps some of you remember the name.
Until this time, I'm still talking about '98, '99, the music industry wasn't really around on the Internet. They were still sitting in their ivory towers, selling people the stuff they want people to buy, telling artists to play what they want artists to play, you know, the usual things dictators and criminals do. The music industry was totally unaware of the revolution that took place in Cyberspace.
But right under their nose, a whole new generation of artists was formed. Artists independent from the main music industrial complex, building up an audience. And they were becoming more and more popular. Download charts at MP3.com revealed the immense popularity of many new artists. Their names were often above some better-known names.
Then, a hard noise came out of a Hollywood villa. The residence from a member of a band called Metallica, to be precise. The hard noise wasn't a new tune, but a complaint. It had come to the attention of this particular individual, that people were actually sharing Metallica music over the Internet, through Napster.
The musician complained that he would lose income as a result of the music sharing that was going on through the Napster software. I'm not a heavy Metal fan, but a bitter Metallica listener told I, that this particular band started out by having people share their music through tape sharing. And I still wonder, why an artist who can live a good life, would complain over people liking his music enough to share it with others.
Because, through the action of this artist, and many other of course, the online Artist community was being attacked, as I will expose later on. So one can safely say that this Metallica member did not have the interest of the online artist in mind.
The music industry woke up from their sleep, their little nap, and they began their take on Napster. Backed by a multi-million dollar well of money, the lawsuits began.
All in the name of saving the Artist Community, the rhetoric and the propaganda began to spread over the mainstream media. The people were warned, that there would soon be no more new music available when people would massively continue to share music with each other. No, they didn't have the online artist in mind indeed. Or perhaps they did but didn't want you to know they did. Because even if the musical industrial complex would go broke because of file sharing, the new music would have been provided by the online artists! In the Netherlands, where I live, there was a campaign where famous artists were being shown with their mouths sown together, like they were torture victims. People obviously had to feel sorry for the rich and famous, eerrr, the artists. Artists who didn't even own their own music anymore and many time have big debts to the record companies than own the rights to their music.
But, as we always see with propaganda, the words and the actions are two different things.
Napster could not resist the flood of lawsuits that were filed against them and eventually they were taken over by the musical industrial complex.
And one can argue over the legality of such programs as Napster. One can say that it's not right to share music like that.
But what about MP3.com and other legal MP3 sites, where the online artist community releases music and communicates with the audience?
Obviously, they are different then the file sharing programs as Napster.
But not for the Musical Industrial Complex!
The guys at Universal were working overtime to find a way to accuse MP3.com of "something illegal".
Completely in the current spirit of globalization and privatization, they themselves were taken over by a company called Vivendi and their orders were to go after the online Artists now. Can't have independents, don't we?
But there was a problem. MP3.com was not like Napster. People were actually offering their own music there, and making quite a name for them. This is the kind of competition you never hear the Musical Industrial Complex complain about, but I think that it is a major reason why they are losing CD sales too. There are many Online Artists who make music of professional quality, especially in the electronic genres. Some are better than the so-called signed artists.
Here it didn't help to pull a Rock Star out of his Villa to complain about loss of money.
Here some people were actually well aware of how artists are treated by this musical industrial complex.
MP3.com looked like a fortress, which could not be taken by the corporate vampires. But there was one weak point, an option for registered MP3.com visitors to "beam" their CD's.
In short, someone could put a CD in his drive, click on the mouse and MP3.com would recognize that CD. You could then go to your work, and log on to the MP3.com website with your own password, and you could listen to the CD without actually having it physically with you. MP3.com had MP3 files of that CD which you could listen to.
MP3.com called this program: Beam It.
I never saw the use of it, but I could also see how it could be abused. I would borrow your CD's, beam them in a few minutes, then you take your CD's back and I could start to download from MP3.com.
Unfortunately, the lawyers at Vivendi also saw this and they started to beam complaints to the judges. Again, they posed as the victims were in fact they were the pirates themselves.
To make a long story short, they provided the Online Artists with a speed-course in Globalization and the vampirism that comes with it.
MP3.com was sucked completely empty before Vivendi bought the website.
One of the first things they did was to label the artists as "clients". Shortly after that, they cut down the royalty payment with 90%. Yes, you hear this correctly. Where some of the artists had a real perspective off being able to live from their music, the fruits of their hands, by the stroke of a pen this future was made impossible. I do not know how many of you would accept an income cut of 90%. We had to, because Metallica could otherwise not have their next car.
In the meantime, they had also fired most of the people who originally set up MP3.com and hired people that would do nothing all day but answering public complaints from artists. In politics, these people are called "spin-doctors". Spin-doctors are professionals in bringing bad news as good news. A good spin-doctor can make someone rejoice over his own death penalty.
The Spin Doctors that were hired by Vivendi did their best to make the artists believe, that they were in fact clients. MP3.com would be a service provider for the artist. And when they had this in the mind of most artists, they pulled back the last ten percent of the royalty income. A contact told me how even in these times, the parking space at MP3.com's office was filled with BMW's and other expensive cars.
Then they went over to charge the artist a big sum of money every month to have more than three tracks available for free download. The website looked like one big MTV ad, Vivendi's signed artists were promoted and the independent artists difficult to find. The quality of the music by the independent artists also didn't increase. Of course not! The serious artists found different sites while the dumbed down remnant who believed the lies of the spin doctors kept on putting their tunes on MP3.com. A thing for which they had to pay a lot of money, too!
Critique could lead to deletion of the website. Sane comments on MP3.com's policy had to be written down intelligently, because the rules were tightened on the site's messageboard. A lot of things were labeled as "insults". After a while they went so far that only artists who paid a lot of money every month to have their music on the MP3.com website could freely post their messages of the MP3.com forum. Only the dumbed down remnant who bought the brainwash education by MP3.com's spin doctors were able to post. This is how they killed the critique.
All these things were so obviously wrong, that it really surprised me to see how easy it was for the musical industrial complex to brainwash the artists. It seemed like the Spin Doctors were making excessive use of a mentality that is planted in western societies. "You respect your music, don't you", they said. "Your music is worth something, so by paying us you show your self-respect". And people were buying these idiotic things. Their slavery was brought to them as a sign of self-respect. How sick can you be?
But when you think about it, it fits perfectly in the works of the musical industrial complex. When you look at the bulk of what is released, it's all about sex and drugs and gang violence. About emptiness. Vanity. Don't think! In my contacts with representants of the industry, I have come across this almost every time. One time I hear an annoyed voice saying to me: "You talk an awful lot about Babylon, don't you". The other time I find out that behind my back people whom I work with closely are being told that my lyrics have to be changed. I hear other artists telling me what they are being told by the music industry: "I want music that makes the pussy wet".
Why were MP3.com's spin doctors so obvious in their spinning and got away with it? How come they knew they were going to be successful in dumbing down the artists? Simple: because that is what they do all the time! It's the reason for their existence! They know they are successful, just look at western society. The fact that a lot of people are absolutely not aware of what is going on, too dumbed down to see they are fooled, is partly because of the works of the musical industrial complex!
For me, being an independent online artist is an essential part of my identity and also one of the premier conditions for my work. I try to spread consciousness, to wake up people for the fact that this Babylon System that you hear the Rastas speak about all the time is in fact a horrible reality. And I am very much convinced that the musical industrial complex is a part of this system. When you look at the bulk of music that is put out to take their place in the hearts and souls of the people, it's all aiding the globalists.
Anyway, I researched further and found out that Vivendi was not only specializing in sucking artists and artist-friendly websites. Like all these globalist-corporations, they are versatile criminals and I am not afraid to say so, because this is an established fact.
Judge for yourself. Dutch National Media revealed how the Vivendi Company also specialize in bringing clean water to people living in the ghetto's and slums of South Africa. Privatization, you know. So they now charge these poor people for the water. Needless to reveal, that these people cannot pay for their water bill. They don't live in a slum because they can, do they. And what happens if you don't pay your bill? Well, simple: you are being cut off.
I call that criminal. It's criminal to deprive people of their basic needs such as water. It's criminal to cut artists with 90%, no, over 100%, of their income. And now that Vivendi got what they want, they sold the remains to CNET.com and the future remains uncertain for the online artist community.
The lies and propaganda concerning this matter is unbelievable. VIVENDI claimed that they couldn't have CNET take over the contents of the website because VIVENDI did not have the ownership of the music on the website. While that ownership remark was true, it seemed no problem at the moment VIVENDI took over MP3.com from the founding owners. In what seems to be of the final spins, the Online Artists got another blow in their heads, another punishment for being independent.
A heartical request to VIVENDI by MP3.com's founder, Michael Robertson, to have the Archive.org website store the music on their server, was sent to deaf ears. All the actions and reactions made it clear that VIVENDI insisted in having the contents of the website DELETED.
VIVENDI didn't delete everything from the website, though. MP3.com had developed a unique online distribution system for the online artists. People could have music sent to their MP3 walkman, or restaurants and stores could select MP3.com music for play in their place. This system is now in the hands of the corporate vampires too.
Operation Kill Online Artist Community in full effect.
The ballad of MP3.com is a disaster for the online artists and listeners. But, as we see, it goes beyond that even. It's part of a bigger ballad, the "ballad of Babylon"!

VIVENDI wasn't the original owner of MP3.com, but they took the website over just after they sucked the original owners empty. A look at the complete story reveals the true intend of the musical industrial complex and the way they try to achieve their goal.
It was a message about sin and grace, and homosexuality was mentioned in it, too. The homosexual lobby in Sweden makes use of a new "hate speech" law which the Swedish parliament voted into existence. When they read in the newspaper how this preacher was preaching that homosexuality is a sin, they were "deeply offended" by this "disrespectful talk" and put a lawyer on the case.
A lower court agreed with the homosexual lobby, "establishing" how Aka Green was "preaching with the intention to deeply offend the homosexual community". Of course, Aka Green appealed to the ruling of the lower court. The second court agreed with the preacher and turned down the complaints of the homosexual lobby. They were not amused and took the case to the Swedish Supreme Courts. Currently, Aka Green is waiting for the decision of the Supreme Court.
There are many in Sweden who do not really speak up against this abuse against a preacher. The "hate crimes law" is obviously intimidating a lot of other preachers who are afraid to end down in jail too. However, people are also organizing a demonstration to be held in the Swedish capital of Stockholm.
Download a revealing interview with Stefan Grevle (President of the Swedish group, "Christian Oganization for Faith and Lifestyle."), as it was broadcasted by Crosstalk Radio. In the show, there was a call for USA citizens to contact the Swedish Embassy and Bureau of Tourism as well as other representational institutes with a word of protest. November 9, 2005 there will be a demonstration in Stockholm.

Elite Thought and Iraqi Prisoner Abuse
by Paul David Collins
The case of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib is the product of ruling class thought, which has metastasized and spread throughout America's military establishment.
Lurking in the Hearts of Men
The Shadow, the fictional hero of pulp magazines and classic radio shows, used to begin every show with the rhetorical question, "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?" Recent reports of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib have had the world asking the same question. According to a United States Army report, the abuses included:
a. Punching, slapping, and kicking detainees; jumping on their naked feet;
b. Videotaping and photographing naked male and female detainees;
c. Forcibly arranging detainees in various sexually explicit positions for photographing;
d. Forcing detainees to remove their clothing and keeping them naked for several days at a time;
e. Forcing naked male detainees to wear women's underwear;
f. Forcing groups of male detainees to masturbate themselves while being photographed and videotaped;
g. Arranging naked male detainees in a pile and then jumping on them;
h. Positioning a naked detainee on a MRE Box, with a sandbag on his head, and attaching wires to his fingers, toes, and penis to simulate electric torture;
i. Writing "I am a Rapest" (sic) on the leg of a detainee alleged to have forcibly raped a 15-year old fellow detainee, and then photographing him naked;
j. Placing a dog chain or strap around a naked detainee's neck and having a female Soldier pose for a picture;
k. A male MP guard having sex with a female detainee;
l. Using military working dogs (without muzzles) to intimidate and frighten detainees, and in at least one case biting and severely injuring a detainee;
m. Taking photographs of dead Iraqi detainees (Taguba, 2004).
No doubt, the psychology that motivated these atrocities will be examined for years to come. Already, social psychologists have drawn parallels between Abu Ghraib and the famous simulated prison experiment conducted by Philip G. Zimbardo at Stanford University in the summer of 1971. Zimbardo wanted to find out what happened when you put good people in a bad place. Would humanity overcome evil or would evil overcome humanity? To test these questions, Zimbardo recruited students in creating a facsimile of a prison. Certain students were designated "prisoners" while others were designated "guards." Initially intended to be a two-week experiment, the project had to be aborted after only six days. Why? The "guards" became abusive and sadistic while the "prisoners" became seriously depressed. Faced with the potential of worse abuses occurring, Zimbardo prematurely halted the experiment.
While Zimbardo's case study is certainly pertinent to understanding the tragedy of Abu Ghraib, another case study might prove more profitable. This case study, however, does not involve overt abuse or simulated prison experiments. Instead, as a whole, this body of work constitutes a collective psychological profile of a small, shadowy segment of the population. That insular and exclusive segment is the power elite.
In his seminal book entitled The Power Elite, sociologist C. Wright Mills defines this wealthy and powerful stratum of society:
The power elite is composed of men whose positions enable them to transcend the ordinary environments of ordinary men and women; they are in positions to make decisions having major consequences. Whether they do or do not make such decisions is less important than the fact that they do occupy such pivotal positions: their failure to act, their failure to make decisions, is itself an act that is often of greater consequence than the decisions they do make. For they are in command of the major hierarchies and organisations of modern society. They rule the big corporations. They run the machinery of the state and claim its prerogatives. They direct the military establishment. They occupy the strategic command posts of the social structure, in which are now centered the effective means of the power and the wealth and the celebrity which they enjoy (Mills, pp. 3-4, 1956).
It should not be lost on the astute reader that, in addition to running the various other machinations comprising modern society, the power elite also "direct the military establishment." Because of its firm grip on this institution, the power elite plays a large part in sculpting the paradigms that govern the military establishment. This transformation from within the military is the direct corollary of authoritarian hierarchalization. In The Architecture of Modern Political Power, Daniel Pouzzner explains this concept:
When a superior determines to encourage, discourage, demand, or forbid among his subordinates a mode of action, thought, or awareness, those modes will tend to be encouraged or discouraged among everyone below him in the hierarchy. If that superior is a nuclear establishment leader, then these modes will tend to be encouraged or discouraged throughout most of society. In this case, only those not within the conventional hierarchy of civilized society escape the brunt of the behavioral tyranny (Pouzzner, p. 17, 2001).
As modes of thought and behavior are selectively encouraged or discouraged, those who occupy the lower layers of hierarchical strata begin to tangibly enact the vision of those in the upper layers. In other words, the world above shapes the world below. This is accomplished through a Pavlovian system of reward and punishment. The lower level individual notices "whatever characteristics favor ascension to higher echelons" and adopts this mode of thought or behavior (Pouzzner, pp. 17-18, 2001). After all, given the lowly conditions of his/her current tier in the hierarchical framework, who would not want to ascend. Oh, and just who determines what characteristics guarantee ascension? The elite above, of course! Pouzzner explains:
The characteristics are arbitrarily dictated by those who are already in the upper echelons of the hierarchy, and once those who exhibit them have ascended, the characteristics are themselves efficiently spread through society (Pouzzner, pp. 17-18, 2001).
Thus, a meme (a contagious idea) is implanted and the status quo is born. The military establishment, with its hierarchical configuration and Pavlovian system of behavioral control, is the ideal transmission belt for memes. Abu Ghraib represents the final product of memetic metastasis. The characteristics exhibited by the torturers of Abu Ghraib were "arbitrarily dictated by those who are already in the upper echelons of the hierarchy." Who controls the upper echelons of the military's hierarchy? As Mills has already made clear, it is the power elite.
As Above, So Below
Indeed, the military's hierarchy seems to conform with the Hermetic dictum of "As above, so below." This prompts a very disturbing question. If the soldiers below were so horribly cruel, what modes of thought and behavior were promulgated from above? To answer this question, one must examine the collective psychology of the elite a little closer.
In the book, Secret and Suppressed: Banned Ideas and Hidden History, Jim Keith reprinted a document that supposedly records much of the criminal activities of the elite throughout history. Of the manuscript, which he referred to as simply "The Franciscan Document," Keith stated the following:
It purports to be a secret history of Western civilization gleaned from secret documents in the Vatican library by a member of the Franciscan order. The inked imprint of a Vatican library entrance chit affixed to the original document and duplicated at the end of the article is a strong indication that the author does have access to Vatican sources… (Keith, 1993, pg. 215).
While some of the document's findings maybe inaccurate or disinformation, its author does provide a very precise description of the psychology of the ruling class. He writes:
The elite are an insular, clannish clique, given to raging idiosyncrasies and immense deposits of superstition. Their insulation from the rest of us, and from the world which we inhabit, has rendered them emotionally undeveloped, incapable of loving, of caring, of giving - to them, the sacrifice of an innocent is no more noteworthy than swatting of an annoying fly, and eminently more useful (Keith, Secret and Suppressed, 1993, pg.234).
The Franciscan's words should not be dismissed as hyperbole. Indeed, several elitist tracts bear out this contention. One such tract is Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, the manual for elite control authored by Hatford Van Dyke. The document states that, in 1954, an issue of chief concern amongst the elite was the problem of managing the masses. The unknown writer claims that the hidden rulers arrived at the following conclusion:
Although the so-called "moral issues" were raised, in view of the law of natural selection it was agreed that a nation or world of people who will not use their intelligence are no better than animals who do not have intelligence (Keith, Secret and Suppressed, 1993, p. 203).
The elite surmised that:
…the low-class elements of society must be brought under total control, i.e. must be housebroken, trained, and assigned a yoke and long-term social duties from a very early age, before they have the opportunity the propriety of the matter (Keith, Secret and Suppressed, 1993, p. 203).
Other elite treatises have expressed identical sentiments and prescribed similar methods. There is no more appropriate example than Zbigniew Brzezinski's The Grand Chessboard, which delineates the geostrategy that he believes will insure the Western elite's global primacy. The methods and means prescribed by Brzezinski reflect the elite's overwhelming disdain for those they wish to subjugate. Painting a vivid portrait of his geostrategy, Brzezinski writes:
…to put it in terminology that harkens back to the more brutal age of ancient empires, the grand imperatives of imperial geostrategy are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and to keep the barbarians from coming together (Brzezinski, 1997, p. 40).
"Vassals?" "Barbarians?" Indeed, such terminology does recall a more brutal age. Those with the slightest modicum of moral compunction would gasp with outrage at such words. Yet, they are more than words, as is evidenced by America's military expedition into Afghanistan shortly after September 11. Returning to The Grand Chessboard, Brzezinski refers to an area known as the "Eurasian Balkans," a region that must be controlled in order to insure American primacy. Afghanistan is nestled comfortably within the "Eurasian Balkans," thus making her a nation of geostrategic significance (1997, pg. 124). The transmission of Brzezinski's virulent strain of thought to the military establishment was tangibly evidenced by America's invasion and subjugation of Afghanistan.
As for the "barbarians" of Afghanistan, the devastation visited upon them could very well keep them from "coming together" for many years. No target was spared in the attempt to capture or kill Bin Laden, civilians included. In an article in the Toronto Sun, Eric Margolis described some of the results of the "war on terrorism":
To date, the U.S. has dropped 10,000 bombs on Afghanistan, killing sizable numbers-in the range of 1,500-2,000, according to Afghan sources. U.S. bombing of cities, towns, and villages has driven over 160,000 people into refugee camps (pg. 1).
Inflicting such massive losses also carries a psychological effect for the "barbarians." It was the Western elites' hope that, after sufficient suffering had been induced, the average Afghan would become tractable enough to be "housebroken, trained, and assigned a yoke and long-term social duties from a very early age." Indeed, a new duty had been assigned to the "vassals" of Afghanistan… planting and harvesting opium.
In 2000, Taliban leader Mullah Omar decreed that opium production was illegal (Harding, 2002). At the time, Afghanistan was the largest producer of heroin and the Taliban reaped enormous profits from the trafficking of the drug (Harding, 2002). Any number of motives could have underpinned Mullah Omar's decision to ban opium, including Islamic tradition, appeasement of the international community, or increase in heroin prices (Harding, 2000). Whatever the case may be, much of the available data suggests that opium production declined significantly:
United Nations officials last month confirmed that poppy production in Afghanistan fell by 91% last year - from 82,172 hectares to 7,606, with most of that grown in areas controlled by the Northern Alliance (Harding, 2002).
Yet, with America's invasion of Afghanistan and the installation of the Northern Alliance as the dominant regime, this trend has come to an abrupt halt:
One senior UN official based in Kandahar said: "The Taliban ban was implemented almost 100%. Already we know that farmers are planting opium again. Without any proper enforcement, advocacy and assistance from the donor community, the problem won't go away" (Harding, 2002).
In the minds of the elites, Afghanis were "barbarians" who were neglecting their duties as loyal "vassals" on the global drug plantation. Through authoritarian hierarchalization, this virulent strain of thought was promulgated within America's military establishment. The final result is a paradoxical one indeed. Soldiers of a free constitutional republic subjugated another country and enforced a feudal form of control. The characteristics of those in the upper echelons are made painfully evident by the actions of their surrogates on lower levels of the hierarchy. As above, so below.
MacNamara and the "Moron Corps"
There are even more examples of when the elite have eagerly practiced what they have preached concerning the masses. These examples are almost too voluminous to document. However, one case should be cited to demonstrate that this mentality precedes the post-September 11th world. This is the case of Robert MacNamara and his "Moron Corps."
MacNamara's practice of the elitist tradition is plainly illustrated by his approach to the question of military recruitment. This Secretary of Defense devised "a cynical recruitment gambit aimed at the underclass known as ‘Project 100,000'" (MacPherson, 2002). Myra MacPherson describes this dubious project:
Under his direction, an alternative army was systematically recruited from the ranks of those who had previously been rejected for failing to meet the armed services' physical and mental requirements. Recruiters swept through urban ghettos and Southern rural back roads, even taking at least one youth with an IQ of 62. In all, 354,000 men were rolled up by Project 100,000. Touted as a Great Society program that would provide remedial education and an escape from poverty, the recruitment program offered a one-way ticket to Vietnam, where "the Moron Corps," as they were pathetically nicknamed by other soldiers, entered combat in disproportionate numbers. Although Johnson was a vociferous civil rights advocate, the program took a heavy toll on young blacks. A 1970 Defense Department study disclosed that 41 percent of Project 100,000 recruits were black, compared with 12 percent in the armed forces as a whole. What is more, 40 percent of Project 100,000 recruits were trained for combat, compared with 25 percent for the services generally (MacPherson, 2002).
It should be noted that MacNamara put this plan together after privately declaring that there was no way of winning the Vietnam conflict (MacPherson, 2002). Project 100,000 took place in 1966, a time when the civil rights movement was beginning to gain momentum. Even with the cry for equality going out everywhere, elite MacNamara was still willing to wage class warfare.
Peters' "Warrior" Thesis: Indoctrinating the Military Establishment
Recall C. Wright Mills' contention that the power elite wields a substantial amount of control over the military. With the exercise of this control, elitist thought has gradually permeated the armed forces. No doubt, many individuals have acted as conduits for the instillation of the ruling class paradigm within the military establishment. Perhaps one of the best examples of the elite's meme transmitters is Ralph Peters, a particularly smug Army Major with a penchant for unabashedly elitist rhetoric. Peters' elitist evangel is most thoroughly delineated in his article entitled "The New Warrior Class." The article can be found in Parameters Magazine, the official publication of the Army War College. He begins the tract with the following remarks:
The soldiers of the United States Army are brilliantly prepared to defeat other soldiers. Unfortunately, the enemies we are likely to face through the rest of this decade and beyond will not be "soldiers," with the disciplined modernity that term conveys in Euro-America, but "warriors"--erratic primitives of shifting allegiance, habituated to violence, with no stake in civil order. Unlike soldiers, warriors do not play by our rules, do not respect treaties, and do not obey orders they do not like. Warriors have always been around, but with the rise of professional soldieries their importance was eclipsed. Now, thanks to a unique confluence of breaking empire, overcultivated Western consciences, and a worldwide cultural crisis, the warrior is back, as brutal as ever and distinctly better-armed (Peters, 1994).
Who are the "erratic primitives" that constitute the "new warrior class?" Peters states: "Most warriors emerge from four social pools which exist in some form in all significant cultures" (Peters, 1994). He proceeds to enumerate the four social pools and their respective warrior offspring:
First-pool warriors come, as they always have, from the underclass (although their leaders often have fallen from the upper registers of society). The archetype of the new warrior class is a male who has no stake in peace, a loser with little education, no legal earning power, no abiding attractiveness to women, and no future. With gun in hand and the spittle of nationalist ideology dripping from his mouth, today's warrior murders those who once slighted him, seizes the women who avoided him, and plunders that which he would never otherwise have possessed (Peters, 1994).
In other words, the "first-pool" of "erratic primitives" is composed of unattractive and patriotic males who suffer the misfortune of occupying a lower layer of socioeconomic stratum.
Peters proceeds to examine the "second pool warriors":
…as society's preparatory structures such as schools, formal worship systems, communities, and families are disrupted, young males who might otherwise have led productive lives are drawn into the warrior milieu. These form a second pool. For these boys and young men, deprived of education and orientation, the company of warriors provides a powerful behavioral framework (Peters, 1994).
As the elite co-opts traditional institutions, Peters foresees the emergence of youthful dissenters. These younger "erratic primitives" are potential recruits for the "warriors." They, too, must be expunged. Reiterating his globalist Weltanschauung, Peters proceeds to identify patriots as the next class of "warrior":
The third pool of warriordom consists of the patriots. These may be men who fight out of strong belief, either in ethnic, religious, or national superiority or endangerment, or those who have suffered a personal loss in the course of a conflict that motivates them to take up arms (Peters, 1994).
This particular variety of "warrior" would probably oppose the amalgamation of its respective nation-state into the elite's world dictatorship. Therefore, it must be eradicated as well. Finally, Peters reveals the fourth "pool" of "warriors":
Dispossessed, cashiered, or otherwise failed military men form the fourth and most dangerous pool of warriors. Officers, NCOs, or just charismatic privates who could not function in a traditional military environment, these men bring other warriors the rudiments of the military art--just enough to inspire faith and encourage folly in many cases, although the fittest of these men become the warrior chieftains or warlords with whom we must finally cope (Peters, 1994).
These soldiers of the "obsolete military paradigm" have no place in the elite's military establishment. The duty of the new soldier no longer involves the protection of nation, family, or the traditional way of life. These are outdated constructs embraced only by the "warriors" awaiting their coming extermination. Thus, the soldier of the past also constitutes a threat.
According to Peters, the "erratic primitives" that comprise this emergent "warrior" class represent a global epidemic:
Worldwide, the new warrior class already numbers in the millions. If the current trend toward national dissolution continues, by the end of the century there may be more of these warriors than soldiers in armies worthy of the name. While exact figures will never be available, and statistics-junkies can quibble endlessly as to how many warriors are really out there, the forest looks dark and ominous enough without counting each last tree. And perhaps the worst news comes right out of Macbeth: the trees are moving (Peters, 1994).
Peters predicts a period of protracted conflict with these "warriors":
The US Army will fight warriors far more often than it fights soldiers in the future. This does not mean the Army should not train to fight other organized militaries--they remain the most lethal, although not the most frequent, threat. But it would be foolish not to recognize and study the nasty little men who will haunt the brutal little wars we will be called upon to fight within the career spans of virtually every officer reading this text (Peters, 1994).
To counter this threat, Peters recommends the following prescriptive measures:
Although there are nearly infinite variations, this type of threat generally requires a two-track approach-an active campaign to win over the populace coupled with irresistible violence directed against the warlord(s) and the warriors. You cannot bargain or compromise with warriors. You cannot "teach them a lesson" (unless you believe that Saddam Hussein or General Aideed have learned anything worthwhile from our fecklessness in the clinch). You either win or you lose. This kind of warfare is a zero-sum game. And it takes guts to play (Peters, 1994).
In other words, campaigns of propaganda and brutal aggression are the solutions to the "warrior" problem. Doesn't Abu Ghraib conform to this "two-track approach"? As is painfully evidenced by his reference to Saddam Hussein, Peters contends that one of the regions infected by the global "warrior" epidemic is Iraq. Because the alleged "warrior" problem is widespread, Saddam is not alone. No, the Iraqi people are "warriors" as well.
According to Peters' criterion, which is vigorously promoted within the military establishment, the prisoners being held at Abu Ghraib were not soldiers. They were "warriors." Thus, the possibility of prisoner rehabilitation was automatically precluded. After all, Peters himself opines: "You cannot ‘teach them a lesson.'" Following Peters' prescribed approach, the American soldiers at Abu Ghraib acted with "irresistible violence directed against the warlord(s) and the warriors."
If Peters is right about anything at all, he is correct to call this war a "zero-sum game." However, the war is not between soldiers and "warriors." It is between the elite and the rest of humanity. Yes, it takes guts to play. However, something else is required to give the player the ultimate advantage. That pivotal element is the human spirit. Given the elite's history of parasitic usury and brutal suppression, it is safe to say that they have forsaken this crucial attribute.

PART ONE: ALEX JONES INTERVIEWS BAJA CLUB (APRIL 2004)
Alex Jones interviews the head of the Baja Beach Club, who is introducing the implantable chip as a trendy toy for the elite members.
The man reveals how he has a military back ground in "communications" where he can't talk about, and how the implantable chip will be a "global passport" and that he "believes wholeheartedly in the Chip System".
PART TWO: ALEX JONES INTERVIEWS CHIPPERS (DECEMBER 2004)
Alex Jones interviews two people who are actively involved in getting people chipped and is later joined by Kathryn Allbright from NOCARDS.org who confronts them with many dangers of taking the chip.
The interview is (again) very revealing and will definitely provide you with a WAKE UP EFFECT.
For example: it turns out to be so, that also this man has a past in Government Inteligence. And the companies are lying about the number of people who are actually getting chipped.
In Mexico, they claim, 100's of people to be chipped. And it turns out to be only 18 (=3x6, but that aside).

Every now and then, you'll hear stories about the Freemasons and other secret societies. Mostly can be identified as conspiracy theories. Many people laugh over the conspiracy theories that surround them, and so they should. After all, a theory is only a theory. Fiction. And a conspiracy theory therefore is like a good thriller.
Secret societies such as Skull & Bones, and the Knights Templar, are often called "fraternal organizations". Many do not know what they are and therefore think it's all fiction and irrelevant. But it's not really that mysterious.
Because the secret societies are simply the fore-runners of what we now know as the Secret Services: MI5, CIA, MOSSAD, et cetera.
There are very ancient accounts of the early Secret Services. The James Bonds of the days of old were serving EMPEROR NIMROD OF BABYLON by committing covert operations against who-ever was unwilling to bow for the ORDO SECLORUM, or WORLD ORDER OF THE AGES.
Nimrod's agents were trained at the Mystery Schools. They were initiated into the Secret Luciferian Doctrine. Today we would call it Satanism. Satan is called The Father Of Lies and it will therefore be no surprise that a crucial element of the Satanist State Religion is a course in manipulation.
This is not so far-stretched when you keep realizing how the Secret Societies or Lodges are simply the forerunners of the Secret Services. We know that the Secret Services manipulate and all. That's why they're called secret. We enjoy the great stories about James Bond, we let ourselves be entertained because we know James Bond stories are conspiracy theories: fictional stories.
But we equally know, that there are real James Bonds. We know that there is a reality which serves as foundation for the theory. And we also know that the real James Bonds are no theory. And what they do is not fiction either.
The secret societies are not fictional either. And when you know what they are, there's no need to waste your time trying to unravel the web of the conspirators.
We know there is a conspiracy, but Psalm 2 describes. The leaders of nations gather themselves against the Creator. and what does the Creator do against it? He laughs and scorns at the little conspiracy.
So it's perfectly normal to laugh over conspiracies and theories. However, there is a conspiracy reality. This reality isn't laughable at all, and not a puzzle to unravel either. Everybody can see the wickedness caused by the conspirers, whose New World Order isn't a theory but a horrible reality.
Blood of sufferers is spilled every day. And the sufferers are crying to the Creator for revenge. As the book of the Apocalypse reveals, there will be a time in which the measure of wickedness will be full. The cup which is currently filling itself with the blood of the sufferers throughout the ages will run over and that is when JAH RASTAFARI, God Almighty Himself, will stop the wickedness.
But until that time, we have to deal with the fact that Babylon system is still working.
So let's get back to Nimrod, when Babylon system was founded after the days of Noah. The mystery schools that trained the early James Bonds are still there. They make no secret about it either. No, they even brag how they're here for over 6000 years.
A very well-known mystery school is the Order Of The Freemasons. The masons are a subject of many conspiracy theories. But not everything is a theory.
Take for example the Knights Templar. Everyone who hears this, immediately thinks about the crusades. After all, the Knights Templar were a Secret Service for the Pope.
And they still exist!
They "take care of matters in Jerusalem", according to the 8th highest ranking Freemason in the United States of America. "Larry", as he calls himself, admits that the Knights Templar are a part of this network of Secret Societies of which also the Freemasons are part.
But it's not really "admitting", it's bragging. And "Larry" loves to brag!
Bragging also how the freemasons were there when the first boat arrived on the American coast, for example. Yes, the freemasons were there when the Europeans "discovered" a "new world" to build cities on.
Who is "Larry"? Well, the name of a caller who phones into the talk-show "Radio Liberty" where the Freemasons are discussed.
In a very entertaining phone conversation, he contradicts himself so many times that it's almost impossible not to see through the lies.
