The Human body is an animal body, its got rules. Old, Old, biological rules. Some of these rules can be bent, some can be tempered, others can be manipulated to your detriment.
It’s been said that the oldest profession is Prostitution. I disagree.
I put it to you that’s a deliberate attempt to destroy the sacred feminine. In a Matriarchy, Sex can be used as a bonding method or a reward. Frankly I’d prefer that system to the Patriarchy method of physical domination and humiliation, including male on male rape.
No friends, the oldest profession in the world, I suggest, is the Con Artist.
Humans learn during infancy that Adults cannot know what you are thinking and pretty soon it occurs to a young child that lying can get you rewards that truth can’t. This seems to be true of the great apes too.
Deception can be a handy tool as a defense against predators, and predators also use it to trick their prey. Telling lies is as Human as Human gets. It’s a trait.
We can choose who and when we lie too. Sometimes we can delay discovery for decades. Lies can be used to achieve status and privilege when talent and honesty won’t. Indeed our world is now so utterly corrupt that honesty is often seen as a P.R. exercise. In business and politics you can lie, just don’t get caught. If you get caught, deny, deny, deny. If that fails, scapegoat, then suicide the scapegoat.
In a world where perception is reality, telling the truth or lying are about the same – at least in the media, where spin and P.R. can turn a disaster into a minor accident, a murder into a suicide, and a cure into snake oil.
Criminal organisations have a twisted view of the world, but it largely runs by Mammalian hierarchy rules, you pays yer dues to the man above, and in return you earn your way to a better pay grade.
From what I gather, it involves a lot of ass kissing, or worse.. that’s male domination for you.
Crime is just the word we use to describe illegality. In truth, our world and its institutions are one giant criminal cartel. There has never been anything legal. Legality is a myth we were taught. Certainly the power brokers of the world had never taken it seriously.
Extrajudicial Killings anyone? Now its U.S. Law. Its LEGAL.
The pretense of authority, is just that, a con. Politicians are Con men. They say one thing, do the opposite, then blame circumstances for their actions. However, the counter issue was their goal all along. They just lied to get you on board with them. It’s that simple.
They treat us as marks. They set up a con and they haul in the rewards. If someone points the con out, they get beaten. If they cross an invisible line too far, they get whacked – hey! fergeddiboutit!
As Humanity has descended into criminal hell, the con men got better at churning out an effective lie, and they even created schools that specialised in lying to the masses. In turn, these schools created educational systems to diminish the critical thinking skills of the silly marks the con men wanted to con.
Properly educated, the marks steadily diminished, to this point in history where they’ll believe sh*t is chocolate.
But I get ahead of myself, lets wind the clock back….
Shamanism and the first Con
In the dim deep past, at some point, a few humans became simply too observant for their own good. They WATCHED others, and learned about human motivations.. they learned how to manipulate those motivations.
At first, I imagine that led to getting more food, more sex and probably unearned status. A con can break easily enough, IF enough eyes see through the glamour. Our early con men had their work cut out for them.
Enter the Shaman, probably the first con man, and likely sitting on the fence between pure criminal and useful psychological practitioner. Now a Shaman, fortunate enough to have gleaned the hows and whats of various herbs, potions, rituals and natural laws, had a distinct advantage.
Seasonal variation made or broke early tribes, so it seems time keeping or Keeping Watch, was a valuable job. Get it right and all was well, get it wrong and people died. Somewhere in the mix of genuine knowledge and skill, was thrown flim-flam and mysticism, probably to help elevate the importance of the Shaman.
I do suggest they had real value and were somewhat beneficial for the tribe. Perhaps they started out decent enough, but then branched into two distinct mindsets.
(A) Secret keeping tricksters who sold their skills to the highest bidder.
(B) Wise Woman & Men who served as medicine men and tribal barometers. Keeping the group mentally stable and vital.
This connection, between genuine knowledge, and pure theatrical bull sh*t, seems to have grown to the point where Religion eventuated. After all, the acolyte to the Shaman, must have eventually thought to delegate. And delegation equates to growth, which meant more mouths to feed, more women to demean, and more social status for those involved.
Now a Priest needed several things to pull off a cool stunt like Religion;
(A) A crowd willing to suspend their own disbelief
(B) Infrastructure to manage the benefits
(C) Acolytes to watch his back and run interference
And all this works best if some of your staff actually believe your bull sh*t.
Now this little enterprise must have been an outlandish success at some point. I can imagine ancient Priests laughing in disbelief at the gullibility of the flock as they robbed the people blind. Sooner or later, though, they needed some serious back up.
Knobs and Nobility
Either via deliberate tinkering, or a marriage made in hell, the Priest class engineered front men to run interference in the form of the Nobility. Otherwise the Nobs caught onto the Scam and wanted in – or they came up with it together. Kings or Queens would appear to be the chosen of the Gods, all anointed by devout Priests – so everyone knew it was all official.
Now if things turned sour, the Priest could blame either the common people or the Nobs, as unholy behavior begot the wrath of the gods. Famine, flood, the usual naturally occurring disasters, and some of the unnatural ones, could all be explain away using the “God did it” – ‘OUT’.
If the Priests got caught – say – buggering children, and it was politically useful, the Nobs might have scapegoated, suicided, or executed the aberrant INDIVIDUAL. After all, its always the INDIVIDUAL that does bad stuff, the group is always collectively right…ah-hem.
And having a book of rules that only they could read, parallels nicely the synthetic language of the Justice systems ‘Legalese’. Also comprehensible only to the select few.
At some point the in-fighting started. The Nobs had had enough and demanded a superior cut, or the priests got greedy and demanded way more than they could get away with. Either way, we live on a planet being wrestled over by generational crime families, who some time long past made a deal.
The scam would never abate. Territory could change hands, kickbacks could too, but the SCAM would always remain.
Now all good criminal Cartels need a place to hang out. We call that place the Government, it’s the middle management tier, and it has one job to do.
Keep the People buying the Scam…
They’re not actually in charge.. they’re front men, they are salesmen.
The Bureaucracy behind the law-making and administration coordinates the effort to keep the TAXES coming in, and now and then they pretend to give you a say via the Election scam.
Governments use the Legal system and police to enforce the blatant theft called Taxation, and like any crime family their enforcers punish people who say “NO”.
They make rules (laws) so their friend don’t gotta pay no taxes.. that’s for the little people.
Now time and time again, the Truth Movement blames the Elite, but I think you’ll find that they aren’t in charge. Biology is. Some lies are so good, so well crafted, they even fool the liar.
If Humans are clever liars, and a criminal enterprise is governed by secrets, then the biggest secret out has got to be the solution to the mystery of WHO’S IN CHARGE.
The SCAM is in charge.
Once the method for successfully lying and coercing people was polished to a high gloss, there was no going back. Things get odd when we invoke Metaphysics, and Jehovah or Saturn or Set, BUT, regardless of those theatrics the scam has so much momentum now it won’t stop on its own. Actually it can’t.
Humans are daily screwing each other over, because they can get away with it, and so much criminal infrastructure is now in place that it operates almost on its own. No one cartel could crash the whole enterprise. That’s probably a deliberate safety mechanism.. it’s how I would do it.
Compartmentalize everyone and everything, with a small group overseeing the big picture, and local middle management enacting policy. War is enforcement, Government squeezes the Marks for protection money (taxes), and hands it over to the real power brokers.
The Awakening (will be delayed)
Occupy wall street, The Truth Movement, The Patriot Movement, The Tea Party,… all of these things are simply managed theatrics. It’s true people will self organise to meet a threat, but there is a 99% chance it will be derailed. Consider that misdirection is far more economic than destruction.
Let the earnest and deluded build your Scam infrastructure for you, then take it over, and steer it where ever you want. All the while, others are paying for everything, but the rewards are all yours.
Gullible buy-in comes from the people who put in genuine effort. They’re the last to see the enterprise has been stolen from them.
The Awakening, is a fabricated Meme, built in part in the sixties, reinforced by the new age movements in the seventies and eighties, and strengthened by the Matrix Memes of the Nineties. There is NO AWAKENING en masse.
But it is happening on the micro scale. Individuals are coming around to the simple notion that Criminal Humans – not ten foot Lizards from Alpha Draconis, operating from Nazi UFO bases on the dark side of the moon – are f**king mankind over. Seems obvious, doesn’t it?
Because of the Biological root of the Criminal Psychosis, and because of the Social enforcement of the various criminal cartels, and the size of its infrastructure – this Scam will not be stopped by kids tweeting from a tent downtown.
The truth movement has been utterly infiltrated and nothing is coming out of it that will change the Criminal Enterprise that dominates Human affairs.
You can round up the entire cabal of bankers, world leaders and religious pundits and imprison them if you want – but 30 minutes later you’d have an entirely new tier of the same criminally minded wankers take their place.
They protect the scam, and the scam protects them – so whats the scam?
Its utterly simple, ‘The Scam’, is a play on biological blind spots and psychological flaws particular to Humans, the scam is this:
Play the Mark and groom them to…
“Don’t TRUST your own judgement.”
When confronted with a scamster, the desire to be part of a Mammalian herd or group, will immediately pressure you to seek leadership cues from those around you. It’s an animal trait – its built into your body. This is the first or primary reflex of social animals. BUT, you can override it, and if you’re reading this you may have already.
As a deeply rooted biological response, it causes mental discomfort to reject it. People give into peer pressure to conform.
Once you have accepted a falsehood as truth, you’ll defend your position, to avoid SHAM(E).
Embarrassment, or the fear of embarrassment, will prevent the Mark from revealing their mistake, folly, cowardice or stupidity. To the extent, FEAR of the PAIN of exposure, will prevent and protect the lie almost indefinitely.
However if you are smart enough or courageous enough to push through all that bullsh*t, you’ll be dismissed, destroyed or recruited, IF you give your position away.
(A) Recruits are absorbed
(B) Genuine challengers are killed
(C) Harmless but persistent types are paraded as lunatics – to be shunned by the herd.
There are two other groups:
(D) Those who know the truth, who are not part of the criminal system and say nothing
(E) Those who don’t know the truth, suspect something is wrong, and conceal their suspicions.
Self-censorship doesn’t ultimately benefit the individual. It just helps maintain the scam.
Which is where many of us find ourselves, on the fringe of the fringe, sitting in the cheap seats.
