1984’s got nothin’ on us

ideas once considered fringe-conspiracy have become widespread, open occurrence; this of course means that the new fringe is even crazier. orwell & huxley probably never saw it getting this far out-of-hand, then again with people like edward bernays around during their lifetime, i’m sure it wasn’t that hard to imagine.

as far as information-mining and hoarding are concerned – shit like this doesn’t bother me. i don’t buy in to their system, i never believed in the sanctity of their constitution, i don’t drink their water, & i don’t inundate my body with their poisons; over-all something as slimy & paranoid as sifting through everyone’s personal information is the least of my worries.

the guy in this interview is an ex-NSA whistleblower who has nothing better to do than spout more fear & paranoia – he could easily be a disinformation agent, or a useful idiot. it’s outdated and obvious to report that the government is untrustworthy, sneaky, thieving, scared and vindictive. this country, to an extent unsurpassed, was founded on genocide, slavery, rape, addiction, fear, control & deception.

there’s a bigger picture here i think, one that illustrates the need now, more than ever, to find & enact your authentic individuality. mass-revolution may not be possible on a spiritual level (whatever that means), but it can definitely happen with things as tangible as technology and philosophy. ultimately it doesn’t matter if the masses ever wake-up, it all starts with you, and that’s all you really need be concerned with: yourself. protesting, fighting, politic-ing, and philosophizing are all just part of that same system – why waste your time? get busy living your life.

i won’t go off on a rant, but if you’re searching for information, & also ways to combat this illusion – check out the conspiracy & consciousness categories of neoalchemist.

terence mckenna describes novelty theory to director john hazard with an elaboration of its core principles involving hyper-complexification and the compression of time. he holds forth on the correspondences between the structure of the DNA molecule and the chinese i-ching, then shows how his notion of an archaic revival leads from the theories of mind and the art movements of the early 20th century to the shaman as the quintessential figure of the 21st century, with psychedelic substances being the bridge between these worldviews.

aldous huxley interviewed by mike wallace

this fascinating archive of a 1958 mike wallace interview with aldous huxley is more revealing about our current state of affairs in the U.S.A. than ever before.

huxley had just written ‘enemies of freedom’ and it became the focus of the discussion. wallace and huxley discussed such topics as overpopulation, the growing impersonalization of human affairs, propaganda, mind-controlling drugs, and various prescriptions for these problems.

in this video huxley makes some very astute observations that are still very pertinent today, affirming him as a very capable futurologist and one of the great minds of the 20th century.
