Lt Col Jim Channon described a tactic in his book ‘Evolutionary Tactics’ whereby the First Earth Battalion would stand between two opposing armies armed with satalite linked cameras. The idea would be that the world would watch as the stand off unfolded and would see for themselves who started it, if either side dared start it.
Who are the First Earth Battalion? We ALL are. When we record police aggression against peaceful protesters on our mobile phones or other devices and broadcast the video via youtube, we are employing this very tactic. When we leak evidence of government, corporate or other institutional abuse of power, we are employing this tactic.
We are all STARs now, in the Dope Show
SMILE, you are on camera!
CCTV, telephone tapping, PRISM. These are just a small selection of the schemes we have found our about. There are plenty more we still know nothing of.
Big Brother watches us, making us all stars in the greatest reality TV show production on Earth. They even selectively show us bits of it when it suits them. But equally they keep much of it secret in order to protect their own authoritarian agendas and avoid public scrutiny. Governments, institutions, the media and corporations have proved over and over again that they can’t be trusted as editors of the free flow of public interest information. All too often they have been caught out hiding information to cover up their own misdeeds, and protect their own financial interests, often to our cost.
If knowledge is power, then secrecy is tyranny.
Who watches the Watchmen?
As we find ourselVes spied on by ever increasing surveillance state, the answer can only be an ever increasing surveillance populace. Every man and every woman are RATS. There are more of us, so we can watch THEM with more eyes than they can watch US.
“We were here before in the ’60s and when they came with machine guns we just melted into the woodwork, nobody was ready for that, so now there must be a new strategy by stealth, by worming from within, we’re not dropping out here, we’re infiltrating and taking over because it’s our world and our children’s world and we’re not going to see it run over the edge by a bunch of constipated gentlemen — that’s not the plan.” ~ Terence McKenna.
“Every man and every woman is a star” ~ Aleister Crowley
RATS ASRT TRSA STAR STAR = RATS
FEAR and LOVE
Fear is the root of all Tyranny. No one tries to dominate others against their will out of love. One might argue they do so out of hate. But hate itself is nothing if not a reaction to fear. Further more, no one supports Tyranny except out of fear. No one turns a blind eye to tyranny except out of fear. Like being afraid to stand up to the school bully.
“Fear can stop you loving, LoVe can stop your fear” ~ Morcheeba
The antidote to this fear is LoVe. Love is the root of all courage. Out of LoVe, Gary McKinnon risked his own neck looking for free energy technology to save the planet, (regardless of whether you believe such secret technology actually exists). Out of LoVe did private Bradley Manning expose US war crimes. Out of LoVe did Edward Snowden expose PRISM. LoVe for humanity gave them the courage to stand up to tyranny.
RATS That Stare At GOATS
GOATS = Governmental, Organisational and Authoritarian Tyranny Systems
By instensely LOOKING at GOATS we can make them drop dead. DDOS attacks are a perfect illustration of this EVIL EYE principle. But in a more subtle way, the surveilence populace can KILL tyranny by subjecting it to public scrutiny, leaking its secrets.
“You must transcend larval identities of race, culture and nationality. Your only allegiance is to life” ~ Dr Timothy Leary
Thus we Overstand the secret tactic of overcoming tyranny is LoVe. Only through LoVe do we find the courage. And we know that nature LoVes courage. Fear is the weapon of authoritarian tyranny. Resist it or it will make your life a misery…
