“If I’d written all the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people – including me – would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today. Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.” — Hunter S. Thompson
“If the eye could see the demons that people the universe, existence would be impossible.” — Talmud, Berakhot, 6
Growing up, I was taught to fear the Underworld: the world of drug dealers, pimps, hustlers, gangsters, and prostitutes. But now that I’m older, I can see that we have much more to fear from the Overworld: the psychopathic power elite and their global conspiracy against the rest of us.
After all, it’s not your friendly neighborhood pot dealer who’s getting rich from fracking while leaving your community with water that catches fire straight from the tap. It’s not the National Trade Union of Pimp Daddies that’s blowing trillions of American tax dollars by waging endless, unwinnable wars that only increase the power and wealth of the Deep State while screwing over everyone else. Three-card Monte hustlers aren’t primarily to blame for the ravaging of our planet’s ecosystem caused by global warming, deforestation, over-fishing, strip-mining, and Monsanto’s version of industrial agriculture. No Mafia made man or member of Los Zetas is in charge of the predatory financial institutions that have been looting public funds and pensions, torpedoing our economy, and then demanding taxpayer-funded bailouts and austerity programs that erode social safety nets and inhibit infrastructure investment. And that single mother who makes extra tips by providing hand jobs at the local Qigong massage parlor has nothing to do with the new slavery ginned-up by for-profit prison stockholders working in tandem with an increasingly militarized police force—unless she gets caught.
My new book, Crash Gordon and the Illuminati Underground, describes an underworld of Gnostic demons—or Archons—that covertly controls the corporations, court systems, and most of the politicians and pop stars in our world above. Those Archon-possessed puppet leaders—or the Illuminati, as most people know them—are waging a covert war on human consciousness. The Archons feast on human fear and suffering—it’s like a crazily addictive drug, or an exotic but necessary fuel for them—so their Illuminati puppets are dedicated to making more of it for them. That’s why our world always seems to be devolving: the people in power are intent on enriching themselves while making things worse for everyone else.
Intuitively, we all know that something like this is really going on, but that intuition has been devalued and routinely subsumed by disinformation campaigns. We know, and take for granted now, that our politicians are bought and sold by corporate interests, that our daily news has been commoditized, and that wars are started under false pretenses—but the level of crime and corruption goes much deeper than that. Hard evidence of the Overworld’s criminal reign has been suppressed in all the major media outlets in this country, but freedom of the press still allows that evidence to be made public in books and on the Internet.
We’re facing huge systemic problems, demanding radical systemic changes. The present-day morally bankrupt neoliberal system of corporate capitalism and globalization is only making our situation worse because it operates like the Archons: it consumes the lives of “surplus humans”—the inevitable outcome of deindustrialization—for its own dark purposes.
If we, as a nation, can’t find a way to release the psychopathic power elite’s choking grip—on our minds, our finances, and our political system—then the overwhelming majority of Americans will be doomed to an increasingly controlled and degraded way of life. The pursuit of happiness will continue to devolve until it’s nothing more than a desperate struggle for survival. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We have the numbers on our side and the power to improve the human condition for all. First, however, we have to collectively acknowledge that we’ve been conned by a criminal overclass—which is no easy thing to admit. As Mark Twain allegedly said:
“It’s far easier to fool a man than to convince him that he’s being fooled.”
I’m not at all convinced that Twain actually said that (I haven’t been able to find the original source for the quote in any of his books), but it’s a true statement, nonetheless.
Unlike so much else we’re told these days.
