We are all familiar with the concept of balkanization as it applies to dividing states into small, quarrelsome, ineffectual factions for the purpose of control. We see it happening right before our eyes in the Middle East and Northern Africa. Once we take off the blinders we also see the speeding up of the dividing of our own nation into the haves and have nots, the sanctioned criminal elements vs. those who would prefer honesty and equality and the false premise of political parties to save us.
I heard from someone again the other day … “there’s nothing we can do.” That’s the balkanization of the spirit. The feeling of helplessness that pervades those whose struggles are only beginning. The lack of unity and most especially courage. The problem is how to put into as few a words as possible to counter that type of thinking when the conversation is in passing. I’ll be the first to admit “I don’t know” how to quickly address these feelings of weakness and that’s a poor excuse.
The last couple of days brought what I’ve been waiting for almost a year. A fresh salad from the garden, spinach, 5 kinds of lettuce, chives and spring onions. A simple pleasure that I won’t take for granted. Chemical free, non-GMO, radiation free … well maybe radiation free, at least for now. I was thinking about those near and even not so near Fukushima whose crops are contaminated like the spinach that can’t be sold on the open market without deception. What’s a hungry person to do? You eat it and hope for the best as I would think many are doing already. Perhaps this is coming to our own backyards. As of this writing, I see that Japan’s nuclear event has dropped off the front page of Google News and the TV networks are quiet about it. The controllers are hoping that we will forget that what we can’t see can hurt us.
I noticed that World Bank president Robert Zoellick, the neocon, zionist, Goldman Sachs, treasury department, PNAC signatory who has jumped from one criminal enterprise to another throughout his career is issuing a warning that rising food prices, driven partly by rising fuel costs, are pushing millions of people into extreme poverty. It’s more predictive programming to prepare us for increased poverty so they can say “we told you so.” 1.2 billion people living on less than $1.25 a day and on the verge of starvation is not enough. The goal is 99% of the world’s population, minus a great number of dead useless eaters, living hand to mouth. It’s more than enough to test our spirit.
If the shills and enablers of the ruling psychopathic class have their way, many of us will soon be singing the “Fixin’ to Die Blues.” Some already have, the rest of us are waiting in line humming the tune and that line is moving right along.
Put simply, besides food control, the two most destructive forms of manipulation have to be war and usury. One kills quickly, the other a bit more slowly but the end result is still the same. Greed and big profits override the rule of law and although many see it they are frozen in place by the fear of what it may take to end it. Better to go along with the program and the politics of hurt than to stand toe to toe against the enemy within. That could be dangerous and ‘sensible’ people tend to avoid danger.
But that’s enough negativity. Dwelling on what could be or what is to be should not be the main focus. Once we can see the possible outcomes it becomes necessary to prepare ourselves, educate others and develop alternatives and actions to what is being planned. Of course that’s easy to say. The application will be much harder. Suggestions are always most welcome.
Once our spirit is divided and unsure, it leaves us vulnerable and that’s when the predators sense the opportunity to strike. Unity in spirit will keep the wolves at bay. They will sense that we are not as weak as they would like us to be.
Nothing that is possible in spirit is impossible in flesh and blood. Nothing that man can think is impossible. Nothing that man can imagine is impossible of realization.
