"The World Hangs in the Balance"
by Jon Rappoport
"The overwhelming number of well-funded groups “fighting for change” in this world are misdirected. Intentionally so. These groups are designed to go off track, eliminate freedom, and produce answers that bring about more top-down control. I can’t emphasize that strongly enough: The use of dupes and pawns, organized into groups, which cause more chaos and try to demoralize and box in THE INDEPENDENT INDIVIDUAL.
But the independent individual must survive, because he is where civilization begins. The independent individual must understand this: his rational powers, and his imagination and creative impulse, are the foundation of anything that could be called civilization. He can sacrifice these abilities on some altar of expediency or fear, but if he does, his light goes out.
Virtually ALL well-funded groups in the world who opt for change and betterment, under the banner of “greatest good for everyone,” are controlled. They are paid for and run as fronts for global takeover. Their workers on the ground are clueless. The elites we call the Globalists are basically promoting the following message: “If consent is withdrawn from our brilliant structure, life will go down the drain. We must have more groups who support our structure.”
Who basically withdraws consent? THE INDIVIDUAL. hose individuals who sacrifice their own rational power and imagination are, in effect, consenting to the Globalist takeover. That takeover is not civilization in any meaningful sense of the word.
It is tyranny. Tyranny takes everything from the independent individual, and gives it to the permanently dependent individual. And then, as the vortex spins deeper, more people become dependent, and the tyrants allow them just enough to survive on the margins.
Every sane person wants a better world, but most sane people don’t yet recognize how that impulse can be twisted against them. Do you believe power-elites would promote their vision under the banner of “a police state” or “dictatorship, poverty, and loss of hope for all”? They must paint a glorious future with generalities that, superficially, many people agree to-
"It takes a village." "We’re all in this together." "Hope and change." "Equality for all." "Justice." "Freedom from oppression." "Unity."
But as usual, the devil is in the details. The fall from the “grace” of promises and slogans is rapid. People wake up one day and find their lives are more troubled and perilous. What happened to the better world and the glimpse of utopia? Ask some of the Russians who were around during the early years of the USSR. They’ll tell you.
These days, the m.o. is “kinder and gentler.” The clamp-down is slower. But it’s heading in the same direction. Groups clamor for help, for fairness, for liberation. They’re entering the gates of misery. But they don’t know it.
So-called social justice warriors are already finding themselves out in the cold. They’re waking up to the Big Con. It all started for them with a vision they bought into. It wasn’t their own. Not really. They boarded a bus to nowhere. Their ticket was a victim-story. They thought they were working with the government. But the government was working them. Their one hope is to come back to themselves as individuals, to recover what they sacrificed.
The uniformed and naïve want to lay on a new interpretation of history. They want to claim that no real progress was ever made by men who were flawed. If a man wasn’t wholly pure, nothing he did was of value. On that basis, for example the American Constitution has been rejected as “unworthy.”
We have come this far, however, because of a protracted struggle for individual freedom and, thus, independence. Until recently, that was the arc of history. Now we return to the battle, because it must always be engaged, and because the understanding of freedom is slipping away.
The world hangs in the balance.”
