Final Fantasy 7 and The Remake

So I’ve been thinking about this topic, which is a big one in the gaming community. It has been rumored to be in the works for years, and repeatedly denied for years, but has recently been rumored to be in the works.

Final Fantasy 7 was THE biggest game in the late 1990s, put Squaresoft on the map, and was the springboard for the company to become Square Enix as we understand it today. It was a release that showed off the power of the Playstation console and its story, characters, and setting remain video game royalty.

I have been playing it the last couple of days and was absolutely shocked by how prophetic and well written it is.

My theory to why this remake has taken so long to do:

Anyone familiar with Cobra and Portal2012.blogspot.com knows that in the late 1990s there was the Congo Invasion, where a large extraterrestrial military operation took place that set back the progress of Earth’s liberation significantly. During this time, these ETs, who make up the Chimera Group that he has referred to and who are cornered to the Long Island facility in New York, exercised great control over the military-industrial complex.

FF7 paints a very dystopian picture of the world, with a military-industrial corporation having taken over the world entirely. The last great nation fell, there are no other nation-states, and the whole of the economic system is under their direct control. There is a 1984 style total surveillance, their wealth is generated at the host planet’s expense, and their rule is almost unchallenged through use of propaganda, false flag terrorism, and appealing to human being’s desire for an easier life.

After this Congo Invasion, we saw a dramatic change in the culture, arts, government, and military conflicts. 9/11 happened only 5 or 6 years after the Invasion. The War on Terror, Homeland Security in the US, the Housing Bubble, the 2008 Recession, etc. all happened after this part of history.

To keep things in perspective, Square Enix is not shy at all about remaking their previously successful games. The early games have been re-released, remastered into HD, and all manner of efforts have been placed into the historical achievements of this company.

But why have they not remade the one that hit the motherlode?

My TFH theory on it is that they were explicitly told not to by some very scary people who did not want the game, its story, and the setting to be out in the public sphere in the 21st century technology that would have been shocking to most people, especially the new generations who are on the front lines of protest against their tyranny.

The magnitude of the story would have been overwhelming, and my previous posts have explored the reasons why the game is so great and why the writers of the game must have been well-read and informed enough in world affairs.

If the remade, HD, voice acted game actually is in development, which would be a wonderful thing and will be a fantastic moment in video game history, then that is a sign that the diminishing of the Chimera Group, military-industrial complex, the gangster syndicates of the Rothschilds, Bush/Scherf, and the Jesuits is significant. If a game like FF7, which is a direct attack on the NWO from beginning to end, can be made into the kind of cinematic experience we see in much less confrontational later releases, then minds will be blown.

The characters are line-for-line representatives of many aspects of the Earth experience, current and former. Cloud is, with the amnesia and triumph over severe manipulation, an Earth human and the hero within all of us. Aeris is the suppressed Goddess Energy that is such a huge threat to tyrants and manipulators. Sephiroth is the misguided and artificially created Illuminati/Cabal who thinks their power grants exemption from the natural laws, but is put down and sent back to “Spiritual Square One.” Barret is the single parent who is stuck between fighting for what’s right, and being a parent. Yuffie is the nationalist warrior who has turned to crime to try to keep her nation alive when it’s dying. Tifa is a truly positive person trying to find reasons to smile when there are so few. Red XIII is the “red man” Native American inspired “pagan” who just exudes wisdom and is heir to heroism and helping fight for the planet’s wonder. Vincent is a former enabler who wants to use his curse to fight for what is right, like a Cabal/Illuminati mind control victim who broke free and is helping the Liberation.

The Shinra are a mix of evil and showing off the folly of human-designed artificial hierarchy. Natural laws and doing what our instincts and creator have built within is feels better, works out sustainably, and heals us through any hardship. Shinra, the metaphor for our increasingly destructive government/industry, cannot possibly “get it right.” The system guarantees failure. Their desperate plan for “Neo-Midgar” is like the breakaway civilization that is not going to be able to build an empire like the Cabal/Illuminati was expecting. The “Promised Land,” like the warped idea of the Jewish Promised Land, is just a myth that replaced the real message of the Promised Land being within the hearts of an enlightened person or being.

I cannot wait for the Event and for this story to be given the justice that it deserves, hopefully free of the tyranny of commercial profiteering. This game and story is too important to be done half-assed.

Goddess Energy and a 13 Year Old Prophecy

I follow the blog 2012portal.blogspot.com nearly every day and see so much truth in Cobra’s message.

I was thinking about the Goddess Energy he has spoken about for years the other day, and one of my favorite stories literally described the concept right back to me and shocked me into being totally useless for about 30 minutes.

My dogs were staring at me like I was crazy when I was bawling.

The previous post about Humanity’s Theme was what started it, remembering that game’s story and the character in the video I’m linking is who I got hit by as a representation of Sophia/Isis.

Aeris, as she’s called, is the last surviving member of what are called the Ancients, a people who safeguard the planet they live in harmony with and are an advanced etheric and spiritual people. They embody selflessness, nature, and can even communicate with the spirit of the planet when it finds that communication necessary.

Aeris fell in love with a great warrior whose carefree spirit was being manipulated by a global corporation into being an enforcer who fought for their interests, but managed to do great things in his time on the planet. Things that got him killed by that corporation to cover up experiments that they had conducted that he knew about and witnessed personally.

She was seperated from her Twin Flame, as it were. The two were blissfully happy around each other, and only sad when they knew they could not be together for periods of time. Her spirit inspired him and she was the last image he had in his head when he died. It took an entire army to kill him, his training and experience making him a veritable demigod, on his way back to the city where she was waiting for him. It was really sad 😦

When he died, the Planet told her in its way and she mourned him in her sacred place – a run down temple in a polluted slum that she was growing a garden in, despite the biological odds.

Her Twin Flame did not entirely die though. He left a legacy – a young man who was not as strong as he was, but who he protected without question and treated as a brother despite having to work a bit harder to help him along. They suffered together and despite this warrior’s best efforts, his legacy did something amazing that he could not – slayed a frightening and powerful man internationally known as the greatest warrior of the time.

This affirmed his confidence in this kid who got sick too easily. They were captured and experimented on, however, and while the experimented didn’t affect the warrior, Zack Fair, it paralyzed and put Cloud Strife, his legacy, into a vegetative state.

After stopping another evil that threatened to bring chaos to the world, an experiment gone wrong, Zack was killed trying to reach his other half and Cloud was miraculously spared the same fate, thought to be dead in his former state.

When Zack, Aeris’ Twin Flame, died, however, Cloud awoke from his slumber and witnessed his mentor and friend’s death, with Zack pulling his head to his bleeding chest in honor of his friend, telling him to live with honor. Cloud was crushed, the trauma adding to yet more trauma he had already endured, and would take time to recover from, but the seeds were planted.

Which brings us to Cloud as Zack’s etheric link to Aeris.

Cloud became someone else in his mind – a combination of Zack’s strength and honor with his childhood dreams of being a cocky asshole who was the best at everything and reminded everyone of it.

He joins a freedom fighting group called AVALANCHE, helps them commit an act of terror, which he appears not to care about, a metaphor to how humanity acts out, but begins the process of realizing who he is. He meets his childhood crush and friend, who sees something is wrong but can’t figure out what. She represents one aspect of Sophia, the Divine Feminine.

Aeris is met soon after, in the same place she had seen Zack die in her mind, a refuge for refugees, a holy place in a polluted city that can only be described as Hell. Cloud’s bravado and act starts to fall apart, though. Something about Aeris is overwhelming, which becomes one part attraction in him, but another the effect that someone spiritually advanced has on us all.

Aeris, this setting’s representation of Sophia, was healing him by simply being there. Her mere presence was helping a man totally screwed up from A to Z in his very being back to his natural place in the world. Of course, her talents with magic helped too but that’s more of the video game aspect than the story XD

They escape the city after being pursued in an operation they pull off that shows them much about this corporation and the world at large, when Cloud sees “proof” that Sephiroth, the Unnatural Oppressor, is alive.

Cloud tells his warped and distorted story of his life, which Aeris could have told him was wrong but did not. Cloud’s childhood crush and friend, Tifa, did the same. Hers and Tifa’s wisdom in letting Cloud sort out his problems and memories gently and supporting him in facing his agony proved to be yet another example of the Goddess Energy to me. Healing and supporting, not overbearing and interfering. They realize that the lost can only find their way with guidance, not being forced.

Their journey became even more difficult, as his agony was quickly becoming a crisis as their pursuit of Sephiroth was beginning to have even more worse global implications than just a dangerous man on the loose. Aeris learned about her ancestors, and that her people safeguard a powerful defense mechanism of the planet in the event of another forbidden magic being used against it.

Cloud’s agony was worse than just something she had to behold and help as gently as she could – he was linked to Sephiroth and could be controlled by him. Cloud was forced into attacking her, to which their friends stopped him, he went unconscious, and she fled to the only place she could go to help – the homeland of her people in the far north.

Cloud woke up after he had a dream of Aeris, who was, like the Goddess, entirely forgiving and positive to him. Cloud, like we as a lost humanity, felt like he didn’t deserve to even know her, much less be forgiven by her and that he was afraid he would betray her if he tried to help. I still choke up when I think about how he beats himself up at that point – I do it all the time.

His friends are upset but understand, leaving him behind until he gets his courage back to join them. He reaches her in the homeland, and before he can say anything to her the control comes back again.

He fights, and stops himself from killing her, but when he pulls back Sephiroth jumps down and impales her with his sword, taunting Cloud and then leaving, his mission accomplished. No one could stop him now it seemed. The Aeris death scene is considered one of the most shocking moments in video game history. I remember being 13 years old when I saw it and crying on the spot. I might have yelled at the TV too lol. Upon reflection of Goddess Energy, represents to me the Unnatural Oppressor (Sephiroth) severing our fragile link to the Goddess (Aeris), and feeling like it is our fault as Humanity (Cloud) who couldn’t stop it.

Everyone in the group is devastated by Aeris’ death. Part of all of them died that moment.

The rest of the journey, as one would expect is incredibly dark. The corporation runs roughshod, Sephiroth teases as he leads them to his lair, and chaos was rampant as Sephiroth’s plans came into fruition, manipulating Cloud even further into giving up the final piece of the puzzle needed to not only revive his original body but give him the weapon needed to siphon the energy of the planet. He needs it to return to the stars and conquer like his alien “mother” did.

Sound familiar, Cobra and friends?

Earth, humanity and its limitless energy a lost hope of a fallen warrior culture at the end of their celestial journey?

After tricking Cloud, he is broken completely. The deceptions lead him to believe that he is an accident, an experiment gone wrong that doesn’t deserve to live. His friends have to break his catatonic body out of the corporation’s clutches, and they try to get help for him but he appears terminally ill. By some miracle, however, a disaster in the village he is being cared for in opens up a hole to the ether of the world. This ether and its connection to life itself allows him to remember who he is and reclaim the strength that allowed him to slay this “God” Sephiroth even before he had the physical strength of the warrior he is today.

His mind was fragmented and incomplete, but the combination of Aeris’ influence, Tifa’s own Divine Feminine energy as she helps him remember who he is in the “Lifestream” or the Etheric Plane as Cobra describes it. The music and tones they use there are agonizing to hear, like pulling a nail out of your foot, but once it’s done and Cloud gets a little more time to heal, he emerges victorious and ready to fulfill his destiny.

Humanity, personified by Cloud, faces his tormentor, the Unnatural Oppressor, Sephiroth, inspired by the Goddess who “died,” Aeris, and whose strength comes the union from his Divine Masculine, Zack’s motivation, and Divine Feminine, Tifa, whose love for him and his for her realized.

Aeris, for her part, never really died, just in body. She lives on in the Etheric Plane, the Lifestream, and as Cloud finishes his journey, which includes a bad ass cutscene of him skewering the “One-Winged Angel” in personal combat, she joins in his efforts to fulfill her ancient people’s duty and protect the planet from the Oppressor whose time is expired.

It should also be noted that Sephiroth’s “mother,” an extremely ancient alien who is excavated and used for the experimentation that created him is like our own invaders. Quiet, lethal, manipulative, and defies all natural law and harmony in favor of power at other’s expense. It can be said she was working through her “son” to revive herself as well as Sephiroth’s plan to for self-revival, since the precedent was already set of death being no obstacle for their kind.

Aeris’ effect is shown yet again at the end when the polluted city of the now distant past lies buried by trees and vibrant life, with another character, whose lifespan spans millennia, celebrates the triumph of purity and nature over the confused recklessness of the former version of Humanity.

This scene of the distant future does not show a human in it, but a world almost alien in prosperity and vigor where the “great human city”, a literal crater of dust and pollution surrounding it in the story’s timeline, is like a rainforest/jungle in its new state.

If humanity exists on that world, which can be safely assumed that it is, then they live in harmony with nature and still thrive. Maybe they live both there and on other worlds, as is our destiny. That they didn’t reclaim that city and rebuild it shows that they have at very least become a more enlightened people.

The developers of that game have changed since then. Their future games reflected much of the American influences they saw as their independent studio became a corporation, which has had its issues with the same problem all corporations have in weighing the shareholder return on investment against putting your heart and soul into something.

Granted, they recently have bucked their recent trends by rebuilding a game that was poorly received and was literally reborn in an almost entirely positive way. The guy who was in charge of the project has no history in business whatsoever, but is a long time video game player who apparently was passionate enough to speak to the souls of the people in charge of the corporation. Interesting time to be the only gaming company who owns up to their shortcomings and works to regain the trust of their fans back O.O

This game, which is called Final Fantasy 7, tells a story of our planet’s and our species’ awakening and defeat of our tormentors.

I believe, especially since that this game happened about a year after the Congo invasion, which was described as a terrible event in a big way multiple times by Cobra, that whoever wrote this story had some understanding of what was going on. He also mentioned that the Resistance Movement has made their mark on some forms of media, and I’d really like to know if Square-Enix, Squaresoft at the time of the game, had any RM members active.

It fits all too perfectly. Sophia through Aeris, the Invader species, Cloud being so PERFECTLY described as our human history and our future, the Divine Masculine and Feminine, mankind’s spirituality lacking his capacity for technology, the populist agony shared by much of the team, the wonder and curiosity of space… it is one of the best experiences one can have on a video game.

Anyway, enjoy the music and maybe Cobra or someone else with that kind of awareness can elaborate on my goofy interpretation of this video game XD

The Senator’s Speech

“Ladies and Gentlemen.”

The Senator peered out at the crowds of people. Estimates had the horde at somewhere between ten and twelve thousand people, all clamoring for their ideals and dreams. He spoke to their hearts and ignited their passions, but as endless as the tide seemed, the Senator also knew that this number of people are but a tiny fraction in a nation of hundreds of millions.

“We have gathered today to celebrate another step in our pursuit of freedom and liberty!”

The roars of the crowd were a false hope, but one that was pleasing nonetheless. The unfortunate reality is that freedom and liberty had been bought with the blood of their ancestors and sold by their lost children long ago. They still roared and would for, he guessed, another 20 to 30 seconds. They loved him like a son, a father, and a friend all at once, but he knew they were placing too much hope in him.

“Our children fight in wars we cannot win, are bored in schools who cannot teach, and are doomed to work in jobs that do not pay. I don’t know about you, but I’m pissed off!”

His southeastern accent was charming to his constituents, but a challenge to the rest of the nation who generally viewed Southerners are backward rednecks. The Senator was different though. Every man and woman in the nation knew the soul of what he was saying, and nobody really cared what he talked like. He was telling the truth and calling out the problems of the nation, not telling half truths and promising too much or outright lying.

The nation has been transformed completely over the course of its history. The former colony, out of sheer need for survival, had developed effective methods of apprenticeship at the local level to support communities, were well-versed in their protectorate’s laws, and studied the economics and trade of the past nations to the east at the political level. They were evolving as a people, with the opportunity to with impunity because they were not surrounded by other empires and mercenary armies. They lived at peace with their native neighbors, again, out of the need to survive.

They were so evolved that despite colonial status, were able to secure the wealth of the colony in greater quantity for their people, not only the protectorate. They were so effective in their defense of the colonial economy that they could resist when the protectorate demanded more from them. Their independence war, however was expensive and devastating, while also forcing the new nation to honor new debts. International interests bombarded the nation from all sides, seeking to change their unacceptable course in order to secure the unlimited potential of the landmass they now owned. The battles throughout the early years of the nation were brutal, but their defense against invasions by eastern oligarchs to take command of their currency was the battlefield, not armies after two failed attempts by the greatest of the eastern empires.

These invasions were not conducted by force, because the new nation protected their people’s right to bear arms. This had long since dispatched any notion of invading the nation through a military and generals. Their society had locked down their eastern coast, making invasions from the nation more like a wilderness to the north too expensive. To their south was a rival empire’s colonies who their former protectorate had warred with for hundreds of years, so any attempts to fight through that corridor would be impossible.

In order to corrupt the nation, they needed to corrupt their society.

“It has been too long since we led the world in so many ways as we did in the past. We were the strongest, smartest, and most cultured people in human history! Now we just kill people abroad and put our own people in prison!”

The young nation held off these quiet invasions and fought the attempts to strangle their economy through what the eastern empires called central banking. This process of consolidating the wealth of a nation and placing in control of “experts” had turned the lands that bore the protectorate the nation had freed itself from into a war zone. Nations went into debt from the loans these central banks provided, and the interest charged had forced action to be taken to seize assets to make up for the ever-increasing return on the loans. Centuries of history and culture were burned and destroyed at the hands of the greedy and manipulative.

The new nation wanted nothing to do with it, but knew that as they prospered, their people would become complacent in the face of that enemy who had all the time in the world to wait. Their enemy was few in number and easier to organize than their nation and its ever forgetful people. Generations would pass and their caring for the east would diminish as they did not see them or talk to their people. It was too distant from them, the ravaged eastern people’s problems and their enemies.

Time would prove the weakness of the brave nation, and the warriors who defended them grew fewer in influence. This enemy was patient and wise. They funded endeavors that provided aid to the nation, helped settlers explore and form new communities in the western frontier. They sent their agents as immigrants and settlers, bringing their philosophies and practices to the nation over time, rather than bluntly hitting the nation in such obvious ways as planting Senators and Presidents. Victory was certain, they just had to wait.

“We bicker among ourselves about the colors of our skin, the money we think we have, and the cars we drive but what about bickering with our massive bureaucracy?! What about bickering with the corporations who laugh at our national interests as they pollute our political process?”

This enemy was not content with simply planting agents and being patient, however. They needed to spread chaos. This nation was growing too fast and defying them too effectively.

The world had been, for a very long time, indifferent to the laborers of their nation. Fealty was accepted, as was ownership of lesser or conquered peoples. Labor had never been expensive to most of the nations of the world because it was an accepted practice to force a percentage of people to do what was needed. It was seen as a stabilizing influence of a nation, and a business opportunity that was thriving in the southwestern part of the eastern world. The practices they entailed, however, were horrific – families torn apart by slave acquisition and shipping, villages burned by rival lords to assert their position. Long had philosophers and idealists spoken against them, and while this practice was stabilizing it was far from perfect.

What better way to break apart not only this upstart nation but destabilize even more regions with the destruction of slavery? This nation’s prosperity and victory over natives was expected, but they could not afford the risk of a nation this large who was in full control of their destiny. They had ravaged the Far East, demolished the Near East, and their plans to destroy the Great North were well under way.

The popular support for abolition would be atmospheric, and the stabilizing influence of feudalism and hierarchy would be rendered impossible to maintain. Slaves and serfs do not have to be paid – small local businesses and communities would be faced with an existential crisis, while slave owners who were not in this sphere’s control would be bankrupted. The assets of these former slave owners would be easily obtained and they would be hated, making recovery from their bankruptcy incredibly difficult. Their character as a former slave owner would be tarnished, and it would be simple to corrupt their replacements, who were not wealthy or cunning enough to have become wealthy before.

The people of the world would become ever defiant of the nation-state and government itself, whose stabilization through “tyranny” and dogma were their only hope of any semblance of order.

“Not since the Civil War has this nation been so divided. Every branch of government is dysfunctional and we owe more debt than any nation in history! This insanity has to stop!”

The chaos brewing in favor of abolition boiled over when it was clear that the southern states were being threatened in every possible way. Their slaves were being stolen and snuck out of their plantations, political opposition was growing, riots on the streets of their northern opponents’ nations to do something about it, and the example of the internationally famous People’s Revolution, among other nations fighting their oppressors inspired this generation to rid itself of all forms of tyranny.

When the southern states declared their independence, rather than their economy being destroyed by idealism and their understanding of their eastern enemy’s plans all to familiar to them, it was the end of this nation’s self-determination. Wealth from their eastern conquerors of the coin was poured into the Union armies as they laid siege to the new Confederacy. The war could have been decided very quickly with the superior technology and sheer numbers of the Union, but these conquerors did not want a quick war.

They wanted this nation to be in shambles.

They helped fund the southern states’ military efforts, and their agents fomented states’ rights paranoia among the governors of their states into believing that their central government was going to infringe upon their economy further. They had just broken off of the United Nation, so it was easy to characterize their new central government as just as intrusive, especially through forged “secret meetings” and other lies used to trick the Confederacy into dividing itself at its most critical juncture. The process of infiltration by their eastern enemies was incredibly thorough. This civil war was a masterstroke.

Four years of unlimited carnage ensued, and the devastation was enough for the rest of the world to be just as shocked as the nation’s people were, who were led to believe that the war would be over within months, not years. The length of time was such that even their former protectorate and their rival had almost conquered the two divided parts the former nation, and only stopped by the still powerful Great Northern nation and their navy, aiding the new nation because they knew how important their independence from the eastern tyrants was, just as they treasured their own independence from the same.

Unfortunately, this Civil War and the Reconstruction that followed it destroyed that independence. Forever.

“Most of our politicians are bought and paid for folks. Why else do you think your children can’t get jobs despite graduating from college? They can’t open any businesses because it costs more to open on here than anywhere else in the world! It’s madness!”

The nation now destroyed, and the president of the Union who tried to pull a fast one on them eliminated, their grip of the people was quickly tightening around unsuspecting necks. In a period of time of only 40 years, three of the presidents of this nation were killed, and any that weren’t were either forced into complying with their new masters, or enjoyed their patronage. They passed legislation that made every man, woman, and child a new form of slave, a “citizen” who had the “right” to pay all debts incurred by their government without question.

And debts piled up to enormous degree ever since.

The South had to be shown the error of their ways by, as planned, bankrupting the slave owners and all their wealth seized. Any Confederate government officials were unable to run for political office, unless they made clear that they wanted to aid their new masters in consolidating power. This began a wave of a new attitude in the South, which was gradual but ended up assimilating the once defiant and influential culture of Virginia into the fold. The repurposing of the South, rebuilding infrastructure, rounding up any traces of the Confederacy, crushing resistance, and indoctrinating the younger generations to forget the Civil War was expensive. Debts were accrued to pay for this, and the bill sent to the federal government.

At the same time, the wealth of the nation was being extracted through the proliferation of the enemy’s favorite device – the corporation. The royal corporations of their former protectorate were the bane of the nation’s existence, inspired their revolution, and were systematically locked out of the nation throughout its history. Civil opposition to them was almost unanimous throughout the early history of the nation, but after the Civil War, there was nothing that could stop their advance into a battered nation’s helpless economy in need to rebuilding.

Oil, gas, electricity, and transportation were controlled by the new version of the great Near East Company their protectorate employed to ravage the same region in its heyday. The control that these companies and their shareholders possessed made them untouchable to the people, who were now helpless to their now overt manipulations of the national economy and political process.

“Corporations are everywhere around us and are the rule, not the exception. Can you believe that at one point in our history we were actually suspicious of them? Kicked them out of our cities and towns? Tried them when they committed crimes?”

Which demanded more subtlety and a change in course. The enemy had worked far too much to risk an overt corporate authority drawing the attention and rage of the people, so they orchestrated an extremely popular rouse – the Antitrust Act. A political masterstroke, the same corrupt politicians who did nothing to stop the control of the corporations from gaining control of the economy paraded their “dismantling” of them. Publicly, the tyranny of the corporation was defeated before it could even begin, but this Antitrust Act only attacked new shareholders of future corporations.

Privately, nobody who was in charge of these monstrosities had their assets seized or were held to account for previous working conditions or exploitation – they were simply given the ability to make pursuing them even more difficult.

Instead of a single name with a wide scope of power, similar to a nation or empire, the Antitrust Act allowed the shareholders of these corporations to spread their influence out into dozens of smaller companies who were funded by their still massive wealth. They could even own “competitors” and would use that particular ruse to create an illusion of rivalry where none existed, profiting from both.

These “regulated” corporations, now too “minor” to be considered monopolies, formed a network that amounted to the same hierarchy of wealth, but now impossible to connect their collaboration together without infiltration or seizure of records. This veritable army of corporations, all funded by the same few tycoons, banking magnates and any entrepreneurs they assimilated would continue unopposed even today.

“We can’t get them to explain anything they do! They’ve even legally declared themselves people through our courts! They’re LAUGHING at us, ladies and gentlemen.”

The now “weakened” corporations now could fathomably play the victim in the courts as anybody who opposed them were picking on honest businessmen trying to live the Nation’s Dream. They acquired legal personhood during this tumultuous post-Civil War era that allowed them to gain the protections of a “people” of their Constitution. That meant they possessed freedom of speech, leading to endless advertising. They had privacy from search and seizure, which prevented their records from being made public. They had the right to bear arms, allowing them to form private armies. Every right afforded to an individual in America was afforded to the collective of a corporation.

Hell ensued. The worst kind. The one that feels like Heaven but you know is wrong.

“We have been at war for nearly one hundred years folks. Yup, you guessed it. They funded them. Whether it’s a world war or some other contrived nonsense, our nation has been right in the thick of every major war in the last hundred years. We need to stop this bullshit!”

The technological advances of the nation was both the strength of the new Corporate Empire and its weakness. The standards of living in the nation improved dramatically, and the applications of technology they had secured spread throughout the world, granting them nearly unlimited profit and wealth. The people were in euphoria. The new weapons, vehicles, and even flight allowed the Empire to dismantle all of its enemies and place the entire world in a Reconstruction era.

The World Wars ensued, laying waste to almost the entire eastern world, allowing the rebuilding of its ruins and celebration of its victors to change the world dialogue and eliminate any semblance of competition for the Quiet Emperors of the world. None now opposed the Corporate Empire of the West, the Banking Empire of the Island, and the Spiritual Empire of the Peninsula. They only tolerate each other, to this day, but what was a world of variety and culture now became the territories and provinces of only three nations whose sum total of land actually owned was just three cities.

Each of these World Wars saw their Empires consolidate power with feigned opposition between powers they controlled both sides of. The Cross and the Moon religions, both built by the same Empire, were pitted against one another in a Global Crusade. The Corporate Empire had its False Republic pitted against the Banking Empire’s now conquered Great Northern False Equality State, profiting immensely from both nations and all lesser nation’s fears and fighting. All semblance of culture and independence was ravaged by these great nations, every corner of the world attacked and assimilated into the fold of these Quiet Empires.

War and terror raged throughout the Southwestern continent, the Dark continent, and through the Far East, from the mainland to the islands. The Empires’ host states lived in false comfort at the expense of hundreds of millions.

The Quiet Empires continued their experimentation and exploitations, with no end in sight to how far they would go. They polluted food, water, and air. They perverted the human form, created weapons that were invisible, diseases that could infect through sexual contact, and sowed even more chaos by creating divisions between man and woman. They championed minority cultures to further confuse and isolate groups, fragmenting civilization itself into lonely corners, angry at everyone else, and unable to connect to the other sides.

“I wouldn’t be here if not for the strides we’ve made to connect to one another. I went from some guy at the local watering hole who ran his mouth and stood up for his kids to a video getting me voted into office. Beat some moron in a suit to the nice chair. He was so mad; sent me angry letters for about a week after the landslide win. I have served you faithfully for 8 years because of that video. I am now standing before twelve thousand people in a nice suit talking about stuff that actually matters because of that video. I love you people! I love this country! Let’s not waste our chance to save it!”

Hope Remains.

Their technology had betrayed them. Their experiments were backfiring. The truth was becoming clear to them and it brought terror to the hearts of men and women who left their humanity behind long ago.

The Spiritual Empire had kept secrets about the history of man they kept from their upstart rivals and partners, the Banking Empire and Corporate Empire. They knew we were not alone in the universe and that this planet was isolated long ago, quarantined and held captive by oppressors far worse than any of them. They had altered and corrupted the human form, built technologies that had even affected they, the masters of the world, in ways they could not fight. These horrors, who the Spiritual Empire had been granted patronage from, had told them long ago that the time they had on this planet was limited but that whoever maintained their vision for humanity would be rewarded immensely.

That time is coming to a close, and nothing can stop the events to come that will expose them, dismantle these Empires, and awaken Humanity to the truths that will allow them to become something else entirely. All that profit, all that power, all that glory in victory over their downtrodden slaves will be gone. They struggle to this moment. They try to scare people with contrived incidents, blow up buildings they need, and use every resource they can’t afford to spread chaos, but their inventions only speed the process of liberation, not slow it.

They built a computer communications network that went from a military operation to a global interface that continues to expand with no end in sight. The Internet was undoing thousands of years of secrets, generations of profits, and made their network increasingly more impossible to conceal.

This network is exposing murder after murder of inventors, intrigues that have destroyed nations and insulted all others, supressed histories, and spiritual texts. This network is connecting parts of the world that would otherwise raise arms against one other in love and harmony. This network is being used to expose atrocities and to recruit domestic protest movements, political action, and has developed alternative news outlets to report more accurate information than the propaganda arm of the Corporate Empire.

The Internet is destroying these Empires at an unbelievable pace and without anywhere near the loss of life associated with the popular revolts of the past.

No longer will human minds be capable of being so easily tricked and manipulated. No longer will we need the contraptions and frauds imposed on us. No longer will we be disconnected with more than 90% of our functionality. The entire structure of control that allowed these Quiet Emperors to conquer us will be dismantled, and nothing can stop it.

“The media is gonna black out this speech, just like all the other ones. They’ll probably have a reporter with some drunk rednecks Free Birdin it up somewhere in the parking lot. They’ll edit out the cheers and anything meaningful I say, replacing it with something they can make fun of me with. You all know the kind of common sense stuff it takes to fix this crap. I’ve said it so many times and you’ve repeated it even more. You’re not stupid. I’m not stupid. I just talk stupid. But by God we are going to win. It might not be today. It might not be me. But I swear to God we will get our country back. We will get our honor back. We will be Americans again!”

“Thank you for spending your precious time to hear me rant. God Bless America!”

Eleven thousand, one hundred eleven people roar in approval at the University of Alabama for the Senator, with a reporter from Corporate News talking to drunk locals outside a nearby bar about the Senator to get a good series of clips to marginalize the rally.

The ongoing blackout of the Senator and his popularity, especially his status as a permanently viral internet icon, is but another manipulation to hide the real American spirit. The spirit that brought Black, White, Latino, Asian, Middle Eastern, Native American, and Indian together to reach a cosmic number together in harmony to celebrate their coming victory.

The oppression will soon be over. When it is, there won’t be any more tricks left to pull, no network of chaos to maintain.

It will be an entire world of truthspeakers and truthseekers. An entire species of heroes and heroines, survivors of a manufactured Hell, and who embody all that is Hope and Courage. The Universe is already in awe of Earth humanity.

Our Chance to Make Our Speeches is Coming.

Humanity’s Theme

For anyone who has never played Final Fantasy 7, I want to share a truly beautiful piece of music that represents both the protagonist of the game, and I’d argue humanity as a whole. Cloud, a young man whose memories are altered physically, and whose fear of who he really is veils the truth, only knows that he has to defeat a terrible enemy, Sephiroth.

He lives under a false identity as an elite operative, leads a group of ragtag freedom fighters against a global corporation and their destruction of the planet they share, and in pursuit of this enemy. He is battered mentally as the journey causes him to lose a close friend, and is manipulated into doing a terrible thing at the wrong possible moment.

This enemy, for his part, taunts him the entire way through and is revealed to be alien in origin, but human in form. He uses his link to Cloud to control him and laugh at his “weakness,” but has something to hide, which Cloud discovers in an etheric and spiritual process.

Cloud learns that he is not who he believed he was – not an elite operative but a second rate grunt who happened to be around this enemy and his forgotten mentor and inspiration for a terrible moment in the planet’s history. He is weak, frail, but in a moment that inspired me and probably millions of people, found the strength to stop Sephiroth after he destroyed his home village and nearly killed two of his friends. He did the unthinkable – killing a man whose alien origins amount to several degrees past the normal strength, speed, and intelligence of normal humans.

Sephiroth was dead and used every trick in the book to get Cloud, the man who killed him, to bring him back to life so he could finish what he started. Cloud, now empowered by the truth and with friends at his side to support him, finds strength that only an awakened and spiritually aware person can have. He leads his friends into the heart of Sephiroth’s domain, his friends and he dismantle his defenses, and he slays him again to stop a terrible catastrophe that would have killed millions.

Cloud was as we are as a people – brainwashed, controlled, dominated, and tricked into betraying ourselves, but our spiritual process is ongoing and we will emerge aware and victorious.

This music is a reminder that we all live a tragic life but our destiny is to defeat our tormentors and save our homes, our friends, and our soul from those who would ravage it.

Moral Society Concepts in Video Games

It’s been a bit of time, but I have a new post regarding morality and using concepts in a somewhat strange medium – video games. The games I reference here are Civilization V and Simcity, games that allows the player to be in charge of the development of a nation-state or city of their choice. Civilization V lets you compete with other civilizations, under the control of the AI, who are in competition with you to create the greatest and achieve victory. I believe strongly that a great society can be made by sound moral decisions and concepts, even if you are surrounded by others who do not participate in morally sound practices. I aim to show you that in video games, you can consciously build these societies and see the effects for yourself, a powerful tool, in my opinion, of giving you the gifts of visualization, planning, and pragmatism in these efforts.

Visualization is one of the most appealing things to me about video games, which bring a story or imagination to life as opposed to simply being in your own mind. Your mind depends on your frame of reference and reservoir of knowledge, which in our society is under attack every day. The power of being able to see your ideas in practice and making them work makes video games great. The gift here is seeing both successes and failures. An example of visualization in Civ 5 is one where I decided that I would employ the concept of trading with others, but staying out of international entanglements. This is called “isolationism” in the media and one of the things that was lambasted by critics of Ron Paul as a sign that he would be an incompetent president. In the game, I basically would take extra resources I had, approach any civilization with them in exchange for wealth or other resources they had extra of that I did not. When these civilizations approached me about joining in with them to declare war on another I refused every time, and the only war I was involved in over the entirety of the game (over 6000 years!) was one where a regional military power decided to aggressively attack me, represented by a Greek / Macedonian empire. This limited war, and incredible prosperity my nation had of the largest population, the best scientific and cultural presence, more wealth than I ever needed for infrastructure, and a military that was designed only for defense that held off a force that, based on power metrics of the units they had, was double in strength. This allowed me to see for myself that this concept not only works but created incredibly wonderful results within my borders!

Planning is something that Simcity absolutely requires and is a gift that keeps on giving in life. In this case, I wanted to see whether or not I could run a modern city with no taxes of any kind sustainably. This would be considered outrageously naive today in America, even though I have read that taxation was pretty much nonexistent in parts of our history where we did not have central banks, such as after Andrew Jackson “killed the banks.” What I noticed was that with residential, commercial, and industrial zones these businesses would be content, but issues like sickness, crime, and the lack of money from traffic, spending too much, getting fired from their jobs, would be rampant on a moment’s notice if I did not watch everything going on closely. Early on, I could not afford to develop the city’s services without taxation because we were too small a city and did not have any supplemental income, like gambling houses, oil refineries, mining, etc. I planned to improve education and the technological level of my industry so that I could build processor factories and export them, as well as build a recycling center to reclaim alloys and plastic I could use to construct them. After about a year of raising funds through taxes alone, the combination of these two improved my income in the city to more than a million of the currency per day, when my expenses were less than 10,000. At that point I got rid of taxes entirely, which made my margin about 28,000 in the red. I effectively had a bankrupt government that did absolutely nothing to raise funds. The results, however, were that my approval rating, which was about 77 to 80 percent, has never changed from 96 percent or higher since. I have no homeless people, my businesses are thriving, and am able to afford services of such sophistication that nobody needs to drive a car to work, all healthcare issues are taken care of quickly, fires are put out almost the moment they happen, and crime is completely under control. I planned for this and created a sustainable, incredibly wealthy and tax free city that is quickly removing other issues, like pollution and improving education further to build a giant solar farm in the area that provides power for every city in the region. This is what we can do if we focus on making REAL changes to our society!

Pragmatism is the gift of learning what works and what doesn’t, one that everyone has to learn, especially those who are more idealistic. Examples are everywhere in decision based strategy games like this: In Civilization 5 I decided that my military efforts would be so minimal that nearly every man, woman and child would live in peace as farmers, fishermen, miners, etc., keep what they own, and their nation’s leaders would focus everything they have on improving their lives. Unfortunately, my neighbors saw this as an opportunity and despite not provoking anyone, I was involved with four different wars in defense, which spent money, killed my people, and undid my vision of peace. Furthermore, aggressive local tribes would constantly raid my farms, mines, and plantations. The fact is, when a predator sees a chance to strike they will and people with incredible amounts of power will take that chance every time they can. So I had to learn that defense had to be prioritized with at least three units of defense per city and that lesson kept enemies out of my lands, reduced aggression on my rivals’ parts because they knew that my forces would slaughter them, and let me improve my citizens’ lives in peace, protected by those heroes. This was a bit of a compromise to my vision, but the price of that secured a Golden Age that guided me to a complete victory through scientific, through humanity’s first settlement of a new planet, and what would have been cultural supremacy as well. In Simcity, I had to learn that you have to earn your way to removing taxes by providing value to others first, and then returning the wealth to the people. While it would be a collective scream of “not my problem” if you went to the board of directors of a multinational corporation to help improve people’s lives with their profits, the city I built where the electronics industry effectively funded the city made it a paradise by making sure their profits were spent on improving the lives of their neighbor. This could be argued as “socialist” but here’s why it is not – the government is not involved at all. Taxation would never have raised enough revenue to fund the incredible healthcare, fire prevention, police, transportation, and education that city has or the pure bliss of the people who keep every penny they earn, spent it on what they want, and keep their jobs as long as they want to work. This is the power of giving back more than what is culturally deemed “acceptable” to the profit mongers.

Video games have helped me see the power of bringing unconventional, controversial, and “idealistic” concepts into practiced, pragmatic reality with a desire to challenge this and to build them into something tangible. While there are certainly elements that are unrealistic in these, which would be a long list, admittedly, at least trying to do this begins the path down the road of building a better world for everyone. We don’t NEED taxes or aggressive war and even if there are predators out there, we can protect ourselves from them. We can run profitable businesses and, as a culture, give back those profits to help our neighbors in need and to protect our rights to keep what we earn! It is possible, and what is possible can become real with effort.

First Time Blogging

Hello my name is JMA2286 and my life has led me to become a “blogger” at an interesting time.

America the Beautiful, as people used to call it, has become an authoritarian state disguised as the global force for freedom. I have worked most of my life in restaurants, helping support a system that has its workers indirectly brainwashed into profitable livestock that serve a single purpose that outweighs all others – make their owners money. I cannot honestly say that it has been an entirely negative experience, as I have learned quite a bit of Spanish in that time (este idioma y los mujeres son bonitas increibles :)), been given opportunities to lead others, and to learn how corporations are from the inside. I recently have decided to leave that part of America, which I am going to call the New Plantation, because I see no honor in living that life and supporting the disguised enslavement of good, honest, hardworking, yet gullible people.

I am going to format each of my posts in an organized way – an introduction, a thesis setting out three points that I will go over, and a conclusion wrapping it all up. They will be longer posts than usual, and I am going to work at finding as much supplementary material to the posts as possible, from sources I think are honorable.

Today I am going to go over my goals for this blog and, in conjunction, my life post New Plantation. These goals are the promotion of public accountability accessible in real time for all organizations public and private, the promotion of the Golden Rule as the basis for all law in the world, and to speak about any and all subjects that help make our world better.

I

Public accountability of an organization is probably one of the scariest things you can bring to anybody in charge of a business, country, bank, church, or social club. They know that what they are doing, under a microscope of any kind that reaches people, is not going to be perfect and certainly not good for “business” if it isn’t kosher.

Let’s think about that for a minute – what if the Department of Homeland Security, who just bought a ton of ammunition: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/02/14/why-is-department-homeland-security-buying-so-many-bullets/, was required to explain why they bought it? Would they have made that decision? What if the Communist Party in China was required to have every department show detailed minutes of their meetings in all departments? Would they have murdered so many of their citizens? http://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/COM.ART.HTM. What if Monsanto Corporation was required to show detailed records of every product they have and what their effects are? http://www.ucsusa.org/food_and_agriculture/our-failing-food-system/genetic-engineering/eight-ways-monsanto-fails.html

Public accountability of any organization is not good for business, but great for the people, if not incredible. Nobody wants to live in a world where your views will get you killed, where your food is going to poison you, or where you don’t know who your true enemies are because of how disguised they are. Public accountability is a way to address and fix this. I argue that if records had to be kept on the activities of all organizations that are required to be public and for information distribution to be publicly audited for its capacity to do so, we would have the immediate resignations of every authoritarian on the planet by next week.

This is the best quote I’ve heard on this concept of public accountability:

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” Henry Ford

Do I want a revolution? Not a violent one, but yes. The question then becomes what do I want to replace our government with? This is a good start, but is definitely not the best http://www.constitution.org/constit_.htm.

While the Constitution for the United States, and all others in the world, certainly aims to promote freedom and responsible leadership, public protection of privacy is one of the biggest reasons, in my opinion, why these freedoms and responsible leadership have been perverted and corrupted. Nobody who wants to limit or eliminates these virtues do so publicly and honorably, just as a robber who has a gun that faces a shopowner with a gun himself runs away. Public accountability is the best weapon against tyranny I have ever seen, and that is illustrated by the global force for public accountability that has changed the world drastically – the internet.

Wikileaks, heroes like Bradley Manning, and bloggers who promote subjects of spirituality, youtube pages that provide inspirational videos, music, and alternative news are lifting the veils that took thousands of years to trick most people into thinking were the right way to do things. In only a tiny fraction of that time. The astonishing efficiency with which information is getting out is terrifying everyone with something to hide and its only getting worse for them.

What better way to protect that which we consider to be sacred virtues than exposing and holding accountable anybody who threatens them, and recognizing people who promote them?

The solution to this is simple – make part of citizenship as a member of any nation include the responsibility to bring to the public attention any and all matters you deem important to the well being of others. Imagine the things employees of DARPA, Rand Corporation, the CIA, NSA, ATF, and Homeland Security would bring forward, if they are brave enough! That revolution that Henry Ford spoke of would come, and anyone wanting to rule over such an informed population would have to have some pretty significant moral fiber and a very thick skin.

II

My next point is the application of the Golden Rule as the basis of law on the planet. This one is so simple it’s stupid, and yet so flawless in its application. Do you want people to spy on you? No? Then don’t do it. Do you want people to make money off of you without telling you how they’re doing it? No? Then don’t do it. Do you want someone with a gun telling you to not have one yourself? No? Then don’t do it. Do you want someone to kill you for some sick fetish? No? Then don’t do it.

This concept would work in conjunction with public accountability to make everything brought to public be examined by the question posed to all who participate of whether you want this done to you.

The outrage that would come forth as the information flooded about the deceptions in banking, espionage, business, corporate law, would both expose and protect from in the future these actions by people collectively realizing that they do not want this done to them and that there will be consequences if they ever do this to someone again.

It is not enough to stop perpetrators from the one action they took, you have to have people look inside to find and eliminate the criminal within. The Golden Rule flawlessly executes that – anyone who violates that by doing to somone what they wouldn’t want done to them is so easily found guilty it would literally make the “court proceeding” take 5 minutes at a time.

Example:

Judge: Do you, George W. Bush, deny that your executive order to begin the military invasion of Iraq and its people adversely affected, on measurable levels, the state of well being of that area of the world?

George W. Bush: No, I do not.

Judge: Would you wish for these effects to be performed on you?

George W. Bush: No, I do not.

Judge: You are hereby found guilty of violating the Prime Rule, we will now meet to convene regarding an appropriate response for your actions.

Think about how this can be applied on so many levels of society – would business owners who pay their people less than half of what it would take for them to afford rent, bills, and enough time to be with your children be ruled for in this situation? Would espionage organizations who participate in assassinations be protected? Would advertisers of Roundup be protected for infecting gardens with difficult to kill weeds?

The judicial systems of the world would be made so simple and easy that way. Nobody would be “immune” to the law, regardless of religious, national, or socioeconomic affiliation. If you make life hard or painful for others, you are in violation. That even goes down to something local like someone who plays really loud music at 2 AM. The application is universal!

III

Getting the word out about ways we can bring this out and other good things in the world is what I’ll be doing most.

My views are about as minority as the term can be – I know that it would take an incredible amount of effort to craft a society that is willing to accept public attention for everything it does and even more bravery for a judge to be an arbiter of accountability and responsibility on such a basic and spiritual level. I do not think we have the capacity to do this yet.

I have done things in my own past that I know I would not want done to others and I have no shame in admitting that. I would be honored to be considered for that kind of work, but would I be qualified? Not yet.

I tend to be drawn to science, spirituality, public exposures of tyranny both overt and covert, uncovered history, video games (a guilty pleasure), women of valor, cases of courage, honor, and heroism in society, and music like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMzI9QS-Kj4

I’m tired of misery and helplessness in society. I want to bring good news to anyone who wants to hear it, see it, and to feel it in their souls.

I hope my views have been made clear and that my intentions are honorable. That is all I can hope for in life in a sense that matters to me. I don’t care if I am rich, poor, cool or awkward, attractive or feo, I just want to have one thing.

Honor

Everything else is what’s on sale. You cannot buy or sell honor you earn it, which is a lifetime of hard work, or lose it, which is easier than breathing the air around you.

I am going to end all my posts with a quote about what matters most to me that time:

Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
