Methods of Social Control: Your Own Mind Divided & Conquered- The Art of the Split Peronae

Your Personality is a Mask

"persona (n.) 

1917, "outward or social personality," a Jungian psychology term, from Latin persona "person" (see person). Used earlier (1909) by Ezra Pound in the sense "literary character representing voice of the author." Persona grata is Late Latin, literally "an acceptable person," originally applied to diplomatic representatives acceptable to the governments to which they were sent; hence also persona non grata (plural personæ non gratæ).

person (n.) 

early 13c., from Old French persone "human being, anyone, person" (12c., Modern French personne) and directly from Latin persona "human being, person, personage; a part in a drama, assumed character," originally "mask, false face," such as those of wood or clay worn by the actors in later Roman theater. OED offers the general 19c. explanation of persona as "related to" Latin personare "to sound through" (i.e. the mask as something spoken through and perhaps amplifying the voice), "but the long o makes a difficulty ...." Klein and Barnhart say it is possibly borrowed from Etruscan phersu "mask." Klein goes on to say this is ultimately of Greek origin and compares Persephone

Of corporate entities from mid-15c. The use of -person to replace -man in compounds and avoid alleged sexist connotations is first recorded 1971 (in chairperson). In person "by bodily presence" is from 1560s. Person-to-person first recorded 1919, originally of telephone calls."

persona (n.) - Online Etymology Dictionary

"Masking is a process in which an individual changes or "masks" their natural personality to conform to social pressures, abuse, and/or harassment. Some examples of masking are a single overly dominant temperament, or humor, two incongruent temperaments, or displaying three of the four main temperaments within the same individual. Masking can be strongly influenced by environmental factors such as authoritarian parents, rejection, and emotionalphysical, or sexual abuse. An individual may not even know he or she is wearing a mask because it is a behavior that can take many forms."

Cargo Culture Explored

Please excuse any typos you may come across. Spell check is evil. We will fix them as we fin them. Thank You. AAMorris Staff.

Culture is a Cult.
We think we know how the world works. We are wrong. The Governments and the rest of the institutions are not what we think. We are told that Governments represent us, they do not. Governments are corporate entities that facilitate commerce. Governments are designed to restrict our Natural state of freedom. Bills of Rights are meant to restrict our freedom not grant it. Constitutions are meant to define the rights of the governments, not the freedom of the individual human benign, which cannot be defined. Our freedom means we can do as we like with ourselves. (raising children aside) What we cannot do is enforce and impose our will onto others and this is the real sin and crime. This is the crime of government. Common sense and the Golden Rule and self authority are traded for a form of very real Feudalism and wage slavery. Please keep an  open mind as you read on. Check out the article index for more.

We are wage slaves and have been subject to centuries of propaganda techniques. All social organizations end up reinforcing these cultural paradigms that literally act like prisons, trapping the minds of generations of human beings into a life of servitude to a system of commerce that is based on contracts and treaties. It is based on scripts. The entire system is based on people following orders.

The system is predicated on the concept of a founding statement or mission. Like the Proverbial Ten Commandments engraved in stone. These “laws” or rules of conduct must be followed. Anything else is fair game.

Customs and costumes are artfully crafted by the working class lower down the pyramid structure, who were paid by royal patrons.  The art they commissioned served the same purpose as all of this media does today, propaganda or more specifically, behavior control. The point of it all is to keep you as a  wage slave tied to this absurd “Satanic” System. We have to think we need to keep paying our taxes after all.

The modern mythology of sex slaves and MK Ultra mind control is more nonsense than not. It is a smoke screen. Layers of childish lies that protect the truth, the “Wizard of OZ Defense”. We must believe the elite are insane and evil. We must believe they have magical powers and can and will project that power anywhere round the globe. We must believe they are maniacs with the power to drop bombs on us from the heavens. In fact the truth is this:
We are dealing with small mice who have projected their shadows on a wall.

The media is literally a shadow play. All of it. Including the news and the internet. All of this noise is designed to keep you distracted. Sex is used to literally stimulate portions of your neurology in order to keep your very mind divided and conquered. This is but one example.

We, the mass public, have all the power. The Royalty who run the show keep the public divided into easily managed portions or communities. You are kept dumbed down on purpose and have been for centuries. The Royal Society, for example, was and is a propaganda outfit. We are supposed to root for our team over our neighbors. We are supposed to think our faith is the right one and the other person’s wrong. When we start seeing how things work, a layer of lies is designed to try to  make us  think that Jewish people "run the show" despite the fact that the actual paper work of treaties and constitutions, that all are bound to follow, lead to the British Royal House. This is a sad bit of nonsense that is meant to divide us from each other. Prejudice is a childish and immature method of division and shows how intellectually challenged the minions of the royalty actually are.

All religions are artificial constructs by definition. God is in nature not in a book or a temple or church. By this I mean specifically that any spirituality and hope you find in your religion is good. But that is not the purpose of the religion in the first place. Any experience you have is real and you can find spirituality in anything. But religion has been traditionally used and is still used to divide us from each other by creating cultural divisions and then playing up the public prejudice of those divisions.

And we are even supposed to be divided within our own minds. This is MK Ultra Mind Control. This is the real deal. It is to get you to divide and conquer yourself. You are not supposed to spend hours reading up on one subject. You are not supposed to then spend more time learning about other subjects. The internet makes this ridiculously easy. We have the most powerful educational tool at our fingertips. It is the most powerful library ever imagined.

You are supposed to have a 3 second attention span. If you start to wake up this lack of attention span puts you back to sleep.

Traditional appeals to authority no longer apply. Read through the articles here and come to your own conclusions.

Please listen to this clip, just the part of the lecture where Alan Watts discusses the lie and myth of history


A Real Stockholm Syndrome indeed!

Want to bet this contract is standard practice?

The images of the celebrities and all news personas and even the supposed real people who are the focus of the so-called news stories are very controlled and highly manipulated. When we see something on a screen or read it in the newspaper or hear it on the radio or by word of mouth, we must remember that we are not able to actually examine the evidence and are relying on hearsay.

A lot of the time the hearsay is highly contradictory.

There are layers of illusion woven with some small doses of  truth and this creates the biography and persona of the so-called film, television, news, pop, music or other sort of celebrity "Star" and this includes those who are presented to us as 'regular' folk.

We are supposed to look up to those people as successful examples of human beings. We are supposed to emulate their behavior. We must avoid this sort of idolatry. We must learn to ignore the messenger and learn to appreciate reading the message.

We think we know who the famous people really are, but we only know what we are shown and told. We know nothing about these people and their real lives. We only know the propaganda or public relations noise.

We can not be sure we know who is who.

"Real World" Contracts

“When signing the contract, cast members also agree that producers can humiliate them, portray them “in a false light,” and even hire “actors who may or may not resemble” them to achieve whatever ends they’d like. So, even if you’re a saint, they can make you look like the devil. MTV also gets blanket rights to all contestants’ experiences “which occur, will occur, or have occurred at any time… (my ‘Life Story’).” That means if you tell the producers a story that happened in your past, they can work it in any way they want. It sounds like something straight out of an Orwellian novel.”

Do You Think You Are Free From Propaganda? Do you think the NEWS and Hollywood are independent from the Government?

Ever hear about The Defense Information School? “The Defense Information School or DINFOS, is a United States Department of Defense (DoD) school located at Fort George G. MeadeMaryland. DINFOS fulfills the Department of Defense's need for an internal corps of professional journalists, broadcasters, and public affairs professionals.” This was formed in 1946! The purpose of this school is to brainwash our minds. Don’t believe us? Please keep reading or check out the article index. Please keep an open mind, everything we think we know is probably wrong, we will explain why we make this claim. This is but the tip of the proverbial iceberg.


Did you ever read or hear about any of these other absurd stories about the ‘War to End all Wars’? What we think of wars and history is more lie than not. Did you know film makers have been faking so-called real war footage for years?  Ever read or hear about the Ghost Army and all the rest? Please keep reading this article.

Do You Want To Get Smart?

The old 1960's television show Get Smart was telling us all what to do. Maxwell Smart works for CONTROL - a Government spy agency that exists to defeat KAOS. The secret that we must Get Smart about is that both sides are controlled opposition and work for the same Multimedia Beast that controls and dominates our lives and minds. This ages old control mechanism has taken many forms. It began a long time ago on an estate not so far away...

The first incarnation of the Yellow Beast was the Hoax of Royalty. Of course there is no such thing. This Noble lie must die!

The concept of Royalty is by definition the clear crime of protection racketeering. That's the meaning of the pirate flag and the Vampire Lords who grow fat and immortal feasting off the blood of their unwitting livestock.

When we peasants and rising middle class got tired of the royals protection hoax, the royals cooked up the controlled opposition called organized religion.

Obviously the Vatican and The Church of England are run by royalty of one kind or another from top down. This system allowed and allows the royals too mingle with us commoners. This is how we can join them and move up in rank, like in the game of chess. We pawns can get promoted!

This idea was and is always true with whatever system we are looking at.

Hollywood, The Music Industry, Government, Banking, Corporate and other institutions exist as the result of this long standing racket.

The university system and royal societies and all the museums and all the rest are the royal and elite's tools of social reinforcement,

These are the bars of our mental prison. We are supposed to be intimidated by all the art.

We are to be awed by the majesty of their great work. Yet it was artists and not the royals who would really and truly perform miracles. It's one thing to play dress up and make up languages and plays. It's another to actually engineer the electrical grid and to build great palaces and ships and create manufacturing processes and all the rest. Further the actual physical labor was performed by most of our ancestors. This gilded prison is of our own making, built with the blood and bones of our own kin.


Religion Was One of The Original Forms Of Yellow Journalism As Was The Traveling Snake Oil Sales Racket. Another form of yellow journalism was and is The Military.

The Royalty That Runs The Show, Owns The Castle Walls & The Costumed Robes

These Are The Ones Who Created The Idea of War In The First Place - Humans Are Not Really War Like - This is a Lie!

The Royals Become The Top Military Generals & They Run The Wars From Top Down & Still Do Today

Here is how and at what level these so-called royals mingle with us 'normals'.

They Seek To Put the Fear of The Devil Into Us So We Think We Need The Protection of The Castle Walls and Men in Theatrical Stage Robes.

We Must Contniue As Wage Slaves Working So They Can Play War-Games With Toys And Dress Up on Stages & Screens and otherwise play make believe.

All of this is yellow journalism. Yellow journalism = myth.

Joseph Campbell defines yellow press newspapers as having daily multi-column front-page headlines covering a variety of topics, such as sports and scandal, using bold layouts (with large illustrations and perhaps color), heavy reliance on unnamed sources, and unabashed self-promotion. The term was extensively used to describe certain major New York City newspapers around 1900 as they battled for circulation.[3]

Frank Luther Mott defines yellow journalism in terms of five characteristics:[4]

  1. scare headlines in huge print, often of minor news
  2. lavish use of pictures, or imaginary drawings
  3. use of faked interviews, misleading headlines, pseudoscience, and a parade of false learning from so-called experts
  4. emphasis on full-color Sunday supplements, usually with comic strips
  5. dramatic sympathy with the "underdog" against the system.


disney info school = yellow journalism or disinfo!

tender (n.2)

"formal offer for acceptance," 1540s, from tender (v.). Specific sense of "money offered as payment" is from 1740, in legal tender "currency which by law must be accepted from a debtor" (see legal).


is really a Royal Card?

"The United States is still a British Colony


"The trouble with history is, we weren't there when it took place and it can be changed to fit someone's belief and/or traditions, or it can be taught in the public schools to favor a political agenda, and withhold many facts. I know you have been taught that we won the Revolutionary War and defeated the British, but I can prove to the contrary. I want you to read this paper with an open mind, and allow yourself to be instructed with the following verifiable facts. You be the judge and don't let prior conclusions on your part or incorrect teaching, keep you from the truth.

I too was always taught in school and in studying our history books that our freedom came from the Declaration of Independence and was secured by our winning the Revolutionary War. I'm going to discuss a few documents that are included at the end of this paper, in the footnotes. The first document is the first Charter of Virginia in 1606 (footnote #1). In the first paragraph, the king of England granted our fore fathers license to settle and colonize America. The definition for license is as follows.

"In Government Regulation. Authority to do some act or carry on some trade or business, in its nature lawful but prohibited by statute, except with the permission of the civil authority or which would otherwise be unlawful." Bouvier's Law Dictionary, 1914.

Keep in mind those that came to America from England were British subjects. So you can better understand what I'm going to tell you, here are the definitions for subject and citizen.

"In monarchical governments, by subject is meant one who owes permanent allegiance to the monarch." Bouvier's Law Dictionary, 1914.

"Constitutional Law. One that owes allegiance to a sovereign and is governed by his laws. The natives of Great Britain are subjects of the British government. Men in free governments are subjects as well as citizens; as citizens they enjoy rights and franchises; as subjects they are bound to obey the laws. The term is little used, in this sense, in countries enjoying a republican form of government." Swiss Nat. Ins. Co. v. Miller, 267 U.S. 42, 45 S. Ct. 213, 214, 69 L.Ed. 504. Blacks fifth Ed.

I chose to give the definition for subject first, so you could better understand what definition of citizen is really being used in American law. Below is the definition of citizen from Roman law.

"The term citizen was used in Rome to indicate the possession of private civil rights, including those accruing under the Roman family and inheritance law and the Roman contract and property law. All other subjects were peregrines. But in the beginning of the 3d century the distinction was abolished and all subjects were citizens; 1 sel. Essays in Anglo-Amer. L. H. 578." Bouvier's Law Dictionary, 1914.

The king was making a commercial venture when he sent his subjects to America, and used his money and resources to do so. I think you would admit the king had a lawful right to receive gain and prosper from his venture. In the Virginia Charter he declares his sovereignty over the land and his subjects and in paragraph 9 he declares the amount of gold, silver and copper he is to receive if any is found by his subjects. There could have just as easily been none, or his subjects could have been killed by the Indians. This is why this was a valid right of the king (Jure Coronae, "In right of the crown," Black's forth Ed.), the king expended his resources with the risk of total loss.

If you'll notice in paragraph 9 the king declares that all his heirs and successors were to also receive the same amount of gold, silver and copper that he claimed with this Charter. The gold that remained in the colonies was also the kings. He provided the remainder as a benefit for his subjects, which amounted to further use of his capital. You will see in this paper that not only is this valid, but it is still in effect today. If you will read the rest of the Virginia Charter you will see that the king declared the right and exercised the power to regulate every aspect of commerce in his new colony. A license had to be granted for travel connected with transfer of goods (commerce) right down to the furniture they sat on. A great deal of the king's declared property was ceded to America in the Treaty of 1783. I want you to stay focused on the money and the commerce which was not ceded to America.

This brings us to the Declaration of Independence. Our freedom was declared because the king did not fulfill his end of the covenant between king and subject. The main complaint was taxation without representation, which was reaffirmed in the early 1606 Charter granted by the king. It was not a revolt over being subject to the king of England, most wanted the protection and benefits provided by the king. Because of the kings refusal to hear their demands and grant relief, separation from England became the lesser of two evils. The cry of freedom and self determination became the rallying cry for the colonist. The slogan "Don't Tread On Me" was the standard borne by the militias.

The Revolutionary War was fought and concluded when Cornwallis surrendered to Washington at Yorktown. As Americans we have been taught that we defeated the king and won our freedom. The next document I will use is the Treaty of 1783, which will totally contradict our having won the Revolutionary War. (footnote 2).

I want you to notice in the first paragraph that the king refers to himself as prince of the Holy Roman Empire and of the United States. You know from this that the United States did not negotiate this Treaty of peace in a position of strength and victory, but it is obvious that Benjamin Franklin, John Jay and John Adams negotiated a Treaty of further granted privileges from the king of England. Keep this in mind as you study these documents. You also need to understand the players of those that negotiated this Treaty. For the Americans it was Benjamin Franklin Esgr., a great patriot and standard bearer of freedom. Or was he? His title includes Esquire.


An Esquire in the above usage was a granted rank and Title of nobility by the king, which is below Knight and above a yeoman, common man. An Esquire is someone that does not do manual labor as signified by this status, see the below definitions.


"Esquires by virtue of their offices; as justices of the peace, and others who bear any office of trust under the crown....for whosever studieth the laws of the realm, who studieth in the universities, who professeth the liberal sciences, and who can live idly, and without manual labor, and will bear the port, charge, and countenance of a gentleman, he shall be called master, and shall be taken for a gentleman." Blackstone Commentaries p. 561-562


"Esquire - In English Law. A title of dignity next above gentleman, and below knight. Also a title of office given to sheriffs, serjeants, and barristers at law, justices of the peace, and others." Blacks Law Dictionary fourth ed. p. 641


Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and John Jay as you can read in the Treaty were all Esquires and were the signers of this Treaty and the only negotiators of the Treaty. The representative of the king was David Hartley Esqr..


Benjamin Franklin was the main negotiator for the terms of the Treaty, he spent most of the War traveling between England and France. The use of Esquire declared his and the others British subjection and loyalty to the crown.


In the first article of the Treaty most of the kings claims to America are relinquished, except for his claim to continue receiving gold, silver and copper as gain for his business venture. Article 3 gives Americans the right to fish the waters around the United States and its rivers. In article 4 the United States agreed to pay all bona fide debts. If you will read my other papers on money you will understand that the financiers were working with the king. Why else would he protect their interest with this Treaty?


I wonder if you have seen the main and obvious point? This Treaty was signed in 1783, the war was over in 1781. If the United States defeated England, how is the king granting rights to America, when we were now his equal in status? We supposedly defeated him in the Revolutionary War! So why would these supposed patriot Americans sign such a Treaty, when they knew that this would void any sovereignty gained by the Declaration of Independence and the Revolutionary War? If we had won the Revolutionary War, the king granting us our land would not be necessary, it would have been ours by his loss of the Revolutionary War. To not dictate the terms of a peace treaty in a position of strength after winning a war; means the war was never won. Think of other wars we have won, such as when we defeated Japan. Did McArther allow Japan to dictate to him the terms for surrender? No way! All these men did is gain status and privilege granted by the king and insure the subjection of future unaware generations. Worst of all, they sold out those that gave their lives and property for the chance to be free.


When Cornwallis surrendered to Washington he surrendered the battle, not the war. Read the Article of Capitulation signed by Cornwallis at Yorktown (footnote 3)


Jonathan Williams recorded in his book, Legions of Satan, 1781, that Cornwallis revealed to Washington during his surrender that "a holy war will now begin on America, and when it is ended America will be supposedly the citadel of freedom, but her millions will unknowingly be loyal subjects to the Crown."...."in less than two hundred years the whole nation will be working for divine world government. That government that they believe to be divine will be the British Empire."..."


Look at the Motto for the SIS above - 'Semper Occultus'

The Book of Revelations Opens to Reveal: "Semper Occultis" (Always Secret - the motto of SIS) indeed! The Secret to the intelligence Services is this: they are artists and culture creators and manipulators of public perception and opinion. They also like to play make believe and dress up. The Royals especially love Halloween. They pretend that holiday never ends. They have been playing make believe for centuries now. This is why they promote juvenile behavior and thinking through their system of banking and social control, they commissioned all the numerous Yellow Journals of history and their minions still do so today. All customs and costumes of royalty and religion and all else are the artificial result of a social control mental prison system.  We don't believe that the James Bond Mi-6 is anything more than Yellow Journal myth. The real point is that the Royal Secret Service the so-called 'Kingsmen' * are nothing but theatrical artists, actors, musicians and other types of travelers.

There are many ways that the British control the world and the mythic "MI-6" may or may not be an actual agency, there are so many such agencies, after all. It really does not matter. Our opinion is that a lot of the MI-6 information is misleading James Bond fantasy mixed with some fact. But we think there is no doubt that most of the so-called secret agents are nothing more than actors or other sorts of theatrical cultural change agents. These are the cultural creators, the legendary so-called 'Masons' or Wizards, the writers and actors and artists who manipulate and maintain the 'cult' in culture.

* "The King's Men was the acting company to which William Shakespeare (1564–1616) belonged most of his career. Formerly known as The Lord Chamberlain's Men during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, it became The King's Men in 1603 when King James I ascended the throne and became the company's patron.

The royal patent of 19 May 1603 which chartered the King's Men names the following players, in this order: Lawrence Fletcher, William Shakespeare, Richard BurbageAugustine PhillipsJohn HemingesHenry CondellWilliam SlyRobert ArminRichard Cowley, "and the rest of their associates...." The nine cited by name became Grooms of the Chamber. On 15 March 1604, each of the nine men named in the patent was supplied with four and a half yards of red cloth for the coronation procession." King's Men (playing company) - Wikipedia


Where Do Minions Come From?



Are we surrounded by minions? It sure feels like it. We like them. They are really cute and designed for commercial business. These sweet little yellow products just can't help but fly off the shelves. We are lucky to have infinite supply online.

We know that at installations like the Defense Information School, the military trains agents, actors, voice over people, radio disc jockeys, comedians, journalists and behind the scenes production staff. This is where yellow journalism techniques are taught to trained agents who have security clearances. All news media is nothing but yellow journalism. We can see how things really work now. Yellow Journalism is the method for all of this. These sensationalized techniques really date back to the earliest days of religion, obviously. These are basic military style propaganda techniques designed to win a so-called war, before ever having to fire a shot.

The need or motive to fake news and wars dates back to the earliest days of our so-called civilization. Medieval castle walls were sold as protection to the mass of peasantry. The origins of our modern Mafia run global culture emerges from the shadow and into the light. We can use even wikipedia to reveal the truth. All we need to do is keep following a literal web linked trail and we will end up seeing how the United States is nothing but a corporate racket, an unlawful and unnatural front for the banking and currency industry, that represents old European moneyed interests who had originally funded this economic enterprise in the first place, or so they think. This funding was ill gotten gain in the first place of course.

We would call these people the royals. The Queen of England would seem to be the Empress of the World, at least on paper. The Treaty of Paris from 1783 makes for the proverbial eye opening read. The monarch retained more rights than you might know. The United States government is in debt to the royals. This body does not work for us. It works against us. Politicians swear an oath to defend it not us. They swear to uphold the Constitution which means the Government not the people. This is and was a simple bait and switch tactic. We The People, quickly became the Founding Fathers, and a new kind of elite. These men founded their version of a racket. We call this layer of extra governance and crime, the United States Government. Television is its most important medium and the on air talking head is the weapon of mass mental destruction that the government uses to control all of us. This same weaponized culture is online. In fact it is pretty much everywhere in our artificial world. We are so used to it we do not see it. We are like the fish in water who do now know they are in water. Better still we are the tadpole in a pot of water that is about to start boiling.

As it turns out, we are brain washed member of a cargo cult.

There will never not be a so-called National Debt clock ticking away. We get the long con now. We are all economic wage slaves in an inhumane system that is simply  built on lies. This is the racket and this is the crime. War and other false narratives are literally manufactured and promoted with the intent of creating a false impression in our minds. We have to believe we need all the layers of government to protect us from harm. This is why these bodies craft and exaggerate every event that fits this meme. The news media is state run and staffed with military trained minions with security clearances. This is how the show is run and it is run this way online too. Alex Jones is not alone. More minions lurk and the real purpose is to get us to do their job for them.

Today, the internet is filled with alt media which emulate the practices of the old. Nothing changes. Seemingly amateur web personas might be part of the show. These fellow 'truth seekers' might be no more than dis-information agents, whether on the pay roll or not. We are encouraged to play gatekeepers to ourselves and others and in this manner we are unwitting pawns of the control system.

The Basic Television Equipment Maintenance (BTVEM) course includes apprentice level instruction in the repair of all types of studio and transmission equipment. Students also learn how to maintain the AVID non-linear digital editing systems. The U.S. Army MOS 25R and the Air Force AFSC 2E134 is awarded upon completion. Since December 2006 Air Force class graduated, DINFOS no longer trains Air Force personnel in the BTVEM course.

The Broadcast Radio and Television Systems Maintenance course is an advanced level course where students learn the ins and outs of American Forces Radio and Television Service (AFRTS) engineering standards and practices.

Both maintenance courses are nationally accredited by the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE). Upon completion of either course with an average GPA of at least 85%, students are certified by the SBE as broadcast technologists (CBT)."


Government is a Crime

The Revolutionary War was just another racketeering scam designed to add another layer to the royal racket. The Royal hand picked governors were already managing the estate just fine. The Revolutionary War and subsequent history is more myth than not. It is a true Long Con. The history of the U.S. Navy itself, reveals the layers of deception and the true intent of the scheme. The original Confederation was not what the royals had in mind, so there was a bait and switch convention where they were supposed to do one thing, but ended up doing something else. It's like they were supposed to get your car some new tires and instead they sell you the whole tire store. Our history is replete with examples of a continuous power grab by this federal beast. But we must never forget that the State and even large city governments are just as controlled. The entire system needs to be overhauled, reduced and made to serve humanity proper. Right now we jail each other over nonsense as the royals and the royal minions grow fatter.

Right now we pay taxes for smoke and mirror green screen generated threats. We have been scammed. We should stop paying our taxes altogether. Even to the States. We should not pay anyone who is oppressing us. The truth is government is a long standing mafia run control system racket and it is a crime against humanity. History is the lie that screens this truth. The Social Security system, the Drug War, the private prison, and all the rest of this farce, NEED TO GO NOW! It's time to end this immature game.

The drug war is another great example of this criminal enterprise's lust for control. The whole thing is a huge con. It has to do with the origins of the pharmaceutical industry scheme. The premise for outlawing cannabis, for example, is wrong. It was considered poison. And guess what? It still is. Get it? This needs to end now. Juries should nullify these absurd laws immediately. We should flood the minions cell phones and social media and office phone systems - demanding this absurdity to end. Anytime any one of us is on trial for something stupid and silly, we must ignore the childish system and act like adults and end the game, at least that one time. As a juror you can do it.  All such laws are nonsense and no constitutional amendment or law makes them justified or logical. It's time for the human race to grow up. We do not need this so-called nanny state. It is designed to dumb us down so we are easier to handle. Nobody has any right to tell you what to do with your own body or life.If you try to kill or steal from someone else, that is the equivalent of forcing your will not them. Another person cannot steal your wife, if she leaves you for him, he didm't steal her. People are not property. Basic common sense and limited laws are the the way to go.

Freedom is a natural state. Freedom cannot be granted by a script. A Bill of Rights is designed to restrict your freedom not grant it. A Constitution is a literal recipe for the government. It is meant to describe the rights of the government not you. The Civil War was another scripted event. Obviously slavery is evil. That wrong does not make what happened next any better. The Federal Government used a very real social injustice for their own ends. This is sick and evil too. Every event only led and leads to an expansion of Federal power. There's good reason why Hamilton is on Broadway. The Royals control us through the banking and money system. There's a good reason why there's a story about Jesus overturning the money changers' table and it has nothing to do with a specific religion. Currency is a control mechanism.

We are conditioned to think an activity is natural and logical if everyone else is doing it. We know this is a fallacy.

The Royals & their minion 'grooms of the stool' are children forever playing Halloween. Let's round them up and let them live out their lives on a pretty estate somewhere, where they cannot bother us anymore. We can try to treat their mental disorders without imprisoning them. Banishment to a nice tropical island sounds like a good way to go. We do not need to emulate the ridiculous prison system. In fact we need to end the modern prison system as we know it.  The modern prison system is nothing but another social manipulation experiment we foot the bill for. We should only limit the freedom of this who kill or continue to steal or otherwise pose a logical threat to the rest of us and we should simply limit their mobility rather than confining them to the cartoonish prison life we are so accustomed to seeing on screens. We should try to actually rehabilitate our fellow human beings rather than punish.

Cultural Conditioning Through Television Programming

We can focus on broadcast television with the daytime talk shows and the night time talk shows and Saturday Night Live and all the rest of the merry band of the Military Industrial Entertainment Complex™.  Talk shows serve to reenforce the very limited news you are allowed to hear about. This is the social control system, And yes the news is limited. Even if you watch international news, you are still getting scripted fiction. Screens hide reality. Not every news story need be faked. The smaller and more local the news story, the more likely it is real. The fake news stories might even be inspired by real events.

What does not make sense is the way the  media promotes terrorism, serial (cereal) killers and the like? The news media and then the rest of the beast, give these super villain criminals the very platform they should be logically deprived of! This obvious flaw in reasoning reveals the con. None of it is real. Does it make sense to spend weeks reporting on a terrorist or 'cereal' killer, promoting these maniacs' ideas? This is free advertising for terrorism. Does that make sense in any other context but one of social control and manipulation? This is the mythic Project MK Ultra. Groups like SITE manufacture such propaganda content on our tax dollar. We finance the means of our own imprisonment. This is a crime. We should get mad about this centuries old con job.

The news media has its so-called whistle blowers who magically have access to all sorts of information that defies the concept of compartmentalization of information and the legendary 'need to know basis'.

The race war canard is a good example of both the deceptive nature of the multimedia beast and the need to play 'two' and only 'two' sides against each other. Like a sports game or political election. It's all the same and all treated the same. In one news story the police are heroes. The next day, they are the enemy. In one story we all get along and have come a long way with race relations. In another, the mythic Manson Race War is around the corner. Of course we must not consider that the highly edited video we see on our screens is not what they claim it is. We aren't supposed to figure out we are watching drills or that what we are seeing is nothing but contrived theater. We are not supposed to realize the police are our neighbors and relatives, our fathers and mothers, daughters and sons. We are supposed to fear our own local police who should be on our side. We must not allow ourselves to continue to be divided and conquered.


Joseph Campbell defines yellow press newspapers as having daily multi-column front-page headlines covering a variety of topics, such as sports and scandal, using bold layouts (with large illustrations and perhaps color), heavy reliance on unnamed sources, and unabashed self-promotion. The term was extensively used to describe certain major New York City newspapers around 1900 as they battled for circulation.[3]

Frank Luther Mott defines yellow journalism in terms of five characteristics:[4]

  1. scare headlines in huge print, often of minor news
  2. lavish use of pictures, or imaginary drawings
  3. use of faked interviews, misleading headlines, pseudoscience, and a parade of false learning from so-called experts
  4. emphasis on full-color Sunday supplements, usually with comic strips
  5. dramatic sympathy with the "underdog" against the system.


Cultural Conditioning Through Social Media Programming

If we do penetrate that layers of the lie, there are plenty More Minions™ waiting. Gatekeeping and the shepherding of the flock is another old tactic and an obvious one. The gatekeeper is not allowed to mention certain subjects. The gatekeeper is probably on a need to know basis, so some things might slip through the cracks. But over all the intent is to keep us on a merry go round with just enough information to keep us coming back for another ride. We aren't supposed to figure out that we are being manipulated. We are not supposed to realize that this is another protective layer of the lie. We are never supposed to see the truth that is right under our eyes. We are not supposed to use the con to learn. We are supposed to stay duped. Yet the best way to learn is to pretend to be dupable. Or to even be duped. It's ok, we all make mistakes.

The gatekeeper wants us to avoid actually trying to change things by spreading the word in a way those 'asleep' can understand. We must not try to make any real kind of change. Real information is associated with Enquirer yellow journalism nonsense. Many online alternative media blogs are nothing but the new media rags.

So be wary of those who mix ideas that are logical, like all of us being wage slaves, with things that are fantastic, like secret societies of DNA/SUPERMEN who run the show. These ideas are clearly the stuff of yellow journalism and should be avoided unless the person presenting such ideas is willing to spend the time and effort to actually explain why we should take what is obviously absurd, seriously.

We are to be afraid of being wrong and being mocked, as if it really mattered what other people think. This is another trick, the appeal to the majority or peer pressure. Get over it and stop caring about what others think. The more we do it and the older we get, the easier it becomes and before we know it we really don't care what other people think at all, especially the intellectually dishonest. But please do not confuse not caring what others think with repeating absurd nonsense. The person speaking nonsense might not care what we think, but their words are still meaningless.

Tailor Your Act For The Audience

The good media presenter knows how to read the room. The trick is to know the audience before hand and then to present a persona and information that meets or exceeds their expectations. Bait the hook with tiny bits of information, that never really goes anywhere,  and you have a pretty good gig going.

They might be doing it for the show alone, not caring much by way of subject matter, they might believe some or all of what they are selling, what is sure is that whether they know it or not, they are reinforcing the social experimental control system.

The University System of Thought Control

We might want to realize that it is more than ok to be wrong and to make mistakes. This is how we learn  and learning never stops. The University system is a Jesuit influenced indoctrination scheme more so than an educational one. Most school text books are designed to hide the truth not reveal it. Wikipedia or any encyclopedia is a much better resource for leaning history and science. Those resources along with this, the internet, when used as the awesome Library it is, can reveal the truth and teach us basically whatever we want to know. 

Culture has always been 'weaponized'. Religions are an earlier form of this kind of weaponization of art.

Make no mistake, modern Cosmology is a religion too and it is meant to be. The Royal Society wasn't formed to educate us. Newton was more crackpot than not. His work is flawed. His so-called theory of orbital mechanics is very wrong. Simple demonstrable ballistic physics explains why. Gravity is independent of any forward motion. Newton's concept requires that gravity, an accelerated velocity, can be balanced by a fixed velocity and this is obviously wrong. The magic apple that gains mass independent of the tree will eventually break the table it is on. So too the apple proves Newton wrong not right. It will always fall to the ground, unlike the Moon which never does.

The entire University promoted Cosmology is very wrong and a literal patchwork of conflicting ideas. 'Ptolemy' (whoever he was or wasn't)  was right and that geocentric model is still used by planetariums today. 

Copernicus, Kepler and even Tycho Brahe didn't get it right. Kepler's ideas of orbits are nonsensical. The basic idea that the heavenly bodies are solid objects like rocks, is insane, There's no reason to think that. 

Einstein exists because of these sorts of problems with the mainstream model. They claimed that the Ptolemaic model more complicated, but when we compare that one to modern Big Bag cosmology with all sorts of comic book inspired ideas like multiverses and time travel, we can see how wrong the modern University system is. It's a joke. Read the articles here about this subject. The entire modern view of the cosmos is a fantasy. The reason why NASA fakes it, is because it's impossible.

It's no coincidence that the first science fiction writers were the same people promoting the heliocentric model. Arthur C. Clarke just followed along in a long line. Satellites don't exist, can't be put into orbit and are not needed. The ionosphere has long been used to bounce sky-waves back down. See article index for more. 

There is no evidence the Earth rotates or revolves around the Sun. The optical experiments are flawed. some of this is covered in the Einstein General Relativity article and some will be covered in a future article. The Michelson Gale experiment is as misrepresented as the Michelson Morley. In any event there is no evidence for any kind of motion of the Earth.

The Foucault pendulum is also another bit of propaganda that also happens to conflict with the ideas of Sir Isaac Newton. The Coriolis Effect is nonsense and also conflicts with Newton. These so-called proofs are nothing.The pendulum is one of the stupidest things I've read about. If it could work and it can't, it would only work at the poles. The way this thing is supposed to work would mean it has to ignore inertia. And we can demonstrate inertia. This part of Newton's propaganda is correct. Inertia is a real phenomena and so is gravity, Anywhere else on the Earth and the whole apparatus rotates with the planet. (assuming the Earth rotates)

The velocity of light has never really been measured. It is an idea. James Bradley and the rest all have to twist themselves into ad hoc pretzels to avoid stating the real results of all their so-called experiments - The Earth does not move. There is no real stellar parallax. And Bradley's ad hoc explanation "aberration" was designed to save face and is truly a piece of bull™. He overlooks the obvious explanation in favor of fantasy. (See article) Even worse aberration is compared to falling rain. But falling rain exhibits the visual phenomena of parallax! It seems Bradley was either stupid or he purposely promoted logical fallacy as reality. In either case this is not science, his experiment is no such thing and we can call this propaganda.

The shapes of the constellations retain there shape throughout the year and this would be impossible if these were suns light years apart as claimed. This is covered in the article about James Bradley and the one about the Fixed Stars, There are other problems with the modern heliocentric model as well. There's the solstices which defy Kepler. There's also the idea that the precession of the equinoxes is another fudge, Nature does not make mistakes people do. Newton and company would think the modern Big Bang model insane. This model is the result of all the patching that had to be done to the heliocentric model. All to avoid admitting the obvious. This demonstrably globe Earth does not move.

A Silly Con

Flat Earth is a con job and part of the social experiment. The Earth can be shown to be best described as a globe if one merely considers the motions of the heavens or watches a high flying passenger jet fly overhead. Not to mention the ship at sea. A long contrail will also show you that the Earth is best described as a globe. We are too small to appreciate this even when we are high up. We never get far enough away from the Earth's surface to appreciate the globe. It's funny how many Flat Earth videos use fake Red Bull Skydiving and other fake footage to show the Earth is flat, while ignoring the obvious distortion from the Go Pro camera.

Go Pro and Red Bull produce too many fake videos for marketing purpose. The other purpose is to get us to think cartoon physics are real. Youtube is their home. The yellow journal minions  love faking military aircraft and flying men. We can guess who makes and perpetuates the UFO hoax and why. Cartoon physics all the way! 

The Flat Earth map is a joke and the mental twisting some of these self proclaimed Flat Earthers engage in is quite silly. Youtube is filled with yellow journal minions and their videos. Flat Earth is one example. The numerous fighter jet videos and other sorts of war footage are other examples. All part of this social control experiment. They treat us like the proverbial mice in the laboratory maze. Youtube is just another screen.

Now do you see why the Flat Earth Society was created by a noble lady in the latter part of the 19th century? It was to cover for all the obvious flaws with the heliocentric model. The basic tactic is to add noise to drown out the obvious truth. This can only work so well for so long.

Today the Flat Earth canard is used to distract from the very topics we are writing about here. The Flat Earth con is filled with obvious minions. It is a corralling exercise and part of the social control experiment. The social controller think the internet is theirs. This is supposed to be the medium for their experiment. The basic idea is to keep us from doing anything to try to change things. We are supposed to stay with our like minded new friends forever in a circle of friendly bliss. Don't try to educate our friends and family, instead wonder if Beyonce is really a different person from Sasha Fierce. That right there is by definition, yellow journalism and we can see how whether intentional or not, this kind of article is the stuff of the rags, just like the National Enquirers and is entertainment and can only make anything valid about this control system look absurd by association. Some real good research and work gets associated with a jackass. And there is the great tactic. This is a joke These people are jokes and not really worth engaging with other than to have a laugh. More and more we see that there is a real childish nature to all of this. It's not we who are as children, it's them. The minions of the royals are the ones acting just like children. The immaturity that is encouraged seems to have backwashed and effected the morons themselves. What a shame. We were supposed to be dumbed down, but in the process they ended up dumbing themselves down. They might want to rethink this scheme. It might take a hundred years, it might take fifty. More people will wake up and the game will have to change or end.

Literal University Nonsense

We can say that today more people around the world are not only in contact but are aware of the big noble lie and the existence of this social control machine. 

The old control mechanisms are losing power.

The University system can be challenged, We can get into mathematical silliness and all sorts of obvious logical fallacies that can be found through out the University system labeled as famed "Paradoxes'! In fact these so-called paradoxes are nothing but sleight of hand, fallacious, brain teasers. Arithmetic literally means counting. Math is counting.  The so-called higher level mathematics proves nothing but the limits of language. These so-called educated elite have no ability to actually reason. They do not know a logical fallacy, nor do they care to. They are rewarded for clever parroting and nothing more. They just need to recite the catechism and all is good. Nobel Prizes for the biggest fool. We've watched their University videos, all the high level doctorate types on a stage, talking about nothing real at all and not even understanding that the words that come out of their mouths proves how unbelievable unintelligent and unthinking these people are. It's either true or feigned ignorance. In either case it is not watchable. It's complete and ridiculous  garbage.

Here we refer to the work of people like Kurt Gödel and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, which is subject for a future article. In short, the idea of infinitesimals is that we can divide the space between the inch marks on a ruler indefinitely. Now obviously we cannot actually spend eternity making smaller and smaller marks. Even if we existed forever in the forms we occupy now, we would be limited to a certain size. We'd be unable to make smaller marks at some very real moment in time. Further the concept itself is presented in the context of a person walking across a room, with the supposed paradox that the person can never reach the other side of the room if he keeps dividing the space between him and his destination. This is no way to model a person walking across a room. Division would be the wrong tool for the job. We'd use subtraction.


"A pyramid scheme is a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme, rather than supplying investments or sale of products or services. As recruiting multiplies, recruiting becomes quickly impossible, and most members are unable to profit; as such, pyramid schemes are unsustainable and often illegal.

Pyramid schemes have existed for at least a century in different guises. Some multilevel marketing plans have been classified as pyramid schemes."

The Modern & Very Commercial World is Based On Feudalism

Welcome To The 'Real' World Pyramid Scheme

"Interesting history, facts and information about the life of the people
who lived in England during the Medieval times

Medieval Jobs - The names of the Medieval people who worked on the manors
The Lord of the Manor was based in the Manor House and from here he conducted the business of the manor. The names of the Medieval jobs of the people who worked on the manors are described as follows:

  • Vassal - A Vassal or Liege was a free man who held land ( a fief ) from a lord to whom he paid homage and swore fealty. A vassal could be a Lord of the Manor but was also directly subservient to a Noble or the King
  • Bailiff - A Bailiff was a person of some importance who undertook the management of manors
  • Reeve - A Reeve was a manor official appointed by the lord or elected by the peasants
  • Serf - A serf was another name for a peasant or tennant. Medieval Serfs were peasants who worked his lord's land and paid him certain dues in return for the use of land, the possession (not the ownership) of which was heritable. The dues were usually in the form of labor on the lord's land. Medieval Serfs were expected to work for approximately 3 days each week on the lord's land.
  • Peasant or Villein - A peasant or villein was a low status tenant who worked as an agricultural worker or laborer. A peasant or villein usually cultivated 20-40 acres of land
  • Cottager: A low class peasant with a cottage, but with little or no land who generally worked as a simple laborer
  • Servant: Servants were house peasants who worked in the lord's manor house, doing the cooking, cleaning, laundering, and other household chores


Two principal estates of the realm

"The gentry is formed on the bases of the medieval societies' two higher estates of the realm, nobility and clergy, both exempted from tax. Subsequent "gentle" families of long descent who never obtained official rights to bear a coat of arms were also admitted to the rural upper-class society: the gentry.

The three estates

The widespread three estates order was particularly characteristic of France:

  • First estate included the group of all clergy, that is, members of the higher clergy and the lower clergy.
  • Second estate has been encapsulated by the nobility. Here too, it did not matter whether they came from a lower or higher nobility or if they were impoverished members.
  • Third estate included all nominally free citizens; in some places, free peasants.

At the top of the pyramid were the princes and estates of the king or emperor, or with the clergy, the bishops and the pope.

The feudal system was, for the people of the Middle Ages and early modern period, fitted into a God-given order. The nobility and the third estate were born into their class, and change in social position was slow. Wealth had little influence on what estate one belonged to. The exception was the Medieval Church, which was the only institution where competent men (and women) of merit could reach, in one lifetime, the highest positions in society.

The first estate comprised the entire clergy, traditionally divided into "higher" and "lower" clergy. Although there was no formal demarcation between the two categories, the upper clergy were, effectively, clerical nobility, from the families of the second estate or as in the case of Cardinal Wolsey, from more humble backgrounds.

The second estate was the nobility. Being wealthy or influential did not automatically make one a noble, and not all nobles were wealthy and influential (aristocratic families have lost their fortunes in various ways, and the concept of the "poor nobleman" is almost as old as nobility itself). Countries without a feudal tradition did not have a nobility as such."

"The nobility of a person might be either inherited or earned. Nobility in its most general and strict sense is an acknowledged preeminence that is hereditary: legitimate descendants (or all male descendants, in some societies) of nobles are nobles, unless explicitly stripped of the privilege. The terms aristocrat and aristocracy are a less formal means to refer to persons belonging to this social milieu.

Historically in some cultures, members of an upper class often did not have to work for a living, as they were supported by earned or inherited investments (often real estate), although members of the upper class may have had less actual money than merchants. Upper-class status commonly derived from the social position of one's family and not from one's own achievements or wealth. Much of the population that comprised the upper class consisted of aristocrats, ruling families, titled people, and religious hierarchs. These people were usually born into their status, and historically, there was not much movement across class boundaries. This is to say that it was much harder for an individual to move up in class simply because of the structure of society.

In many countries, the term upper class was intimately associated with hereditary land ownership and titles. Political power was often in the hands of the landowners in many pre-industrial societies (which was one of the causes of the French Revolution), despite there being no legal barriers to land ownership for other social classes. Power began to shift from upper-class landed families to the general population in the early modern age, leading to marital alliances between the two groups, providing the foundation for the modern upper classes in the West. Upper-class landowners in Europe were often also members of the titled nobility, though not necessarily: the prevalence of titles of nobility varied widely from country to country. Some upper classes were almost entirely untitled, for example, the Szlachta of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

Before the Age of Absolutism, institutions, such as the church, legislatures, or social elites, restrained monarchical power. Absolutism was characterized by the ending of feudal partitioning, consolidation of power with the monarch, rise of state, rise of professional standing armies, professional bureaucracies, the codification of state laws, and the rise of ideologies that justify the absolutist monarchy. Hence, Absolutism was made possible by new innovations and characterized as a phenomenon of Early Modern Europe, rather than that of the Middle Ages, where the clergy and nobility counterbalanced as a result of mutual rivalry."

Below a glossary to keep in mind. Words have meaning. Learn the origins of the words we use and you will have powerful tool at your disposal.

Be a Sovereign Not a Sovereign Citizen: Are You Not King (or Queen) of Your Own Castle or Domicile?


sovereign (n.) 

late 13c., "superior, ruler, master," from Old French soverain "sovereign, lord, ruler," noun use of adjective meaning "highest, supreme, chief" (see sovereign (adj.)). Meaning "gold coin worth 22s 6d" first recorded late 15c.; value changed 1817 to 1 pound.

sovereign (adj.) 

early 14c., "great, superior, supreme," from Old French soverain "highest, supreme, chief," from Vulgar Latin *superanus "chief, principal" (source also of Spanish soberano, Italian soprano), from Latin super "over" (see super-). Spelling influenced by folk-etymology association with reign. Milton spelled it sovran, as though from Italian sovrano. Of remedies or medicines, "potent in a high degree," from late 14c.

domicile (n.) 

mid-15c., from Middle French domicile (14c.), from Latin domicilium, perhaps from domus "house" (see domestic) + colere "to dwell" (see colony). As a verb, it is first attested 1809. Related: Domicileddomiciliary.

Can we get Free by withdrawing our consent to be ruled? I think maybe so....



Man VS Nature
“Natural law is a philosophy that certain rights or values are inherent by virtue of human nature and universally cognizable through human reason. Historically, natural law refers to the use of reason to analyze both social and personal human nature to deduce binding rules of moral behavior. The law of nature, being determined by nature, is universal.”

Look at the word robe. The nobles and clergy (who were really the nobles too) all wore robes. The word robe relates to the word “rob” or “robber”. As in thief. The peasants didn’t wear robes, not while working out in the fields at least. Please read through the glossary below. 

robe (n.) 

"long, loose outer garment," late 13c., from Old French robe "long, loose outer garment" (12c.), from a Germanic source (compare Old High German rouba "vestments"), from West Germanic *raubo "booty" (cognate with Old High German roub "robbery, breakage"), which also yielded rob (v.). 

Presumably the notion is of garments taken from the enemy as spoils, and the Old French word had a secondary sense of "plunder, booty," while Germanic cognates had both senses; as in Old English reaf "plunder, booty, spoil; garment, armor, vestment." Meaning "dressing gown" is from 1854. Metonymic sense of "the legal profession" is attested from 1640s.

crook (n.) 

early 13c., "hook-shaped instrument or weapon," from Old Norse krokr "hook, corner," cognate with Old High German kracho"hooked tool," of obscure origin but perhaps related to a widespread group of Germanic kr- words meaning "bent, hooked." Meaning "swindler" is American English, 1879, from crooked in figurative sense of "dishonest" (1708). Crook "dishonest trick" was in Middle English.

pray (v.) 
early 13c., "ask earnestly, beg," also (c. 1300) "pray to a god or saint," from Old French preier "to pray" (c.900, Modern French prier), from Vulgar Latin *precare (also source of Italian pregare), from Latin precari "ask earnestly, beg, entreat," from *prex (plural preces, genitive precis) "prayer, request, entreaty," from PIE root *prek- "to ask, request, entreat" (cognates: Sanskrit prasna-, Avestan frashna- "question;" Old Church Slavonic prositi, Lithuanian prasyti "to ask, beg;" Old High German frahen, German fragen, Old English fricgan "to ask" a question). 

Parenthetical expression I pray you, "please, if you will," attested from 1510s, contracted to pray 16c. Related: Prayed; praying. Praying mantis attested from 1809. The "Gardener's Monthly" of July 1861 lists other names for it as camel cricket, soothsayer, and rear horse. 

prey (n.) 

mid-13c., "animal hunted for food," also "that which is taken in war," from Old French preie "booty, animal taken in the chase" (mid-12c., Modern French proie), from Latin praeda "booty, plunder, game hunted," earlier praeheda, literally "something seized before," from PIE *prai-heda-; for first element see prae-; second element related to the second element in prehendere "to grasp, seize" (see prehensile).

prey (v.) 

c. 1300, "to plunder, pillage, ravage," from prey (n.) and in part from Old French preer, earlier preder (c.1040), from Late Latin praedare, from praeda (see prey (n.)). Its sense of "to kill and devour" is attested from mid-14c. Related: Preyedpreying.

artificial (adj.) 

late 14c., in the phrase artificial day "part of the day from sunrise to sunset," from Old French artificial, from Latin artificialis "of or belonging to art," from artificium (see artifice). Meaning "made by man" (opposite of natural) is from early 15c. Applied to things that are not natural, whether real (artificial light) or not (artificial flowers). Artificial insemination dates from 1897. Artificial intelligence "the science and engineering of making intelligent machines" was coined in 1956.

artifice (n.) 

1530s, "workmanship, the making of anything by craft or skill," from Middle French artifice "skill, cunning" (14c.), from Latin artificium "a profession, trade, employment, craft; making by art," from artifex (genitive artificis) "craftsman, artist," from stem of ars "art" (see art (n.)) + facere "to make, do" (see factitious).

We do not really need the Federal government at all.

A more limited bureaucracy is a better idea at all levels of ‘government’.

Government literally means mind control.

Complaining to the IRS is pointless.

Call and bother the elected officials who make the laws in the first place. That’s a place to start.

Don’t waste your time with the collection agency who cannot change anything.

The laws need to be changed. The entire system is predicated on bills being signed into laws and these laws being followed by everyone working in the system in the same exact manner soldiers are to follow their orders from their commanders. It is the same thing.

thaumaturge (n.) 

"wonder-worker," 1715, from Medieval Latin thaumaturgus, from Greek thaumatourgos "wonder-working; conjurer," from thauma (genitive thaumatos) "wonder, astonishment; wondrous thing," literally "a thing to look at," from root of theater, + ergon "work" (see organ).

theater (n.) 

late 14c., "open air place in ancient times for viewing spectacles and plays," from Old French theatre (12c., Modern French théâtre, improperly accented) and directly from Latin theatrum "play-house, theater; stage; spectators in a theater" (source also of Spanish, Italian teatro), from Greek theatron "theater; the people in the theater; a show, a spectacle," literally "place for viewing," from theasthai "to behold" (related to thea "a view, a seeing; a seat in the theater," theates "spectator") + -tron, suffix denoting place. 

Meaning "building where plays are shown" is from 1570s in English. Transferred sense of "plays, writing, production, the stage" is from 1660s. Generic sense of "place of action" is from 1580s; especially "region where war is being fought" (1914). Spelling with -re arose late 17c. and prevailed in Britain after c. 1700 by French influence, but American English retained or revived the older spelling in -er.

war (n.) 

late Old English wyrrewerre "large-scale military conflict," from Old North French werre "war" (Old French guerre "difficulty, dispute; hostility; fight, combat, war;" Modern French guerre), from Frankish *werra, from Proto-Germanic *werz-a- (cognates: Old Saxon werran, Old High German werran, German verwirren "to confuse, perplex"), from PIE *wers- (1) "to confuse, mix up". Cognates suggest the original sense was "to bring into confusion." 

Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian guerra also are from Germanic; Romanic peoples turned to Germanic for a "war" word possibly to avoid Latin bellumbecause its form tended to merge with bello- "beautiful." There was no common Germanic word for "war" at the dawn of historical times. Old English had many poetic words for "war" (wigguðheaðohild, all common in personal names), but the usual one to translate Latin bellum was gewin "struggle, strife" (related to win (v.)). 

First record of war time is late 14c. Warpath (1775) is originally in reference to North American Indians, as are war-whoop (1761), war-paint (1826), and war-dance (1757). War crime first attested 1906 (in Oppenheim's "International Law"). War chest is attested from 1901; now usually figurative. War gamestranslates German Kriegspiel (see kriegspiel).

For sense development from "turning" to "becoming," compare phrase turn into "become." 

The sense "uncanny, supernatural" developed from Middle English use of weird sisters for the three fates or Norns (in Germanic mythology), the goddesses who controlled human destiny. They were portrayed as odd or frightening in appearance, as in "Macbeth" (and especially in 18th and 19th century productions of it), which led to the adjectival meaning "odd-looking, uncanny" (1815); "odd, strange, disturbingly different" (1820). Related: Weirdlyweirdness.

In English, psychological sense "mind," is attested by 1910.

Related: Hall-of-famer.

hut (n.) 

1650s, from French hutte "a cottage" (16c.), from Middle High German hütte "cottage, hut," probably from Proto-Germanic *hudjon-, which is related to the root of Old English hydan "to hide," from PIE *keudh-, from root (s)keu- "to cover, conceal" (see hide (n.1)). Apparently first in English as a military word. Old Saxon hutta, Danish hytte, Swedish hytta, Frisian and Middle Dutch hutte, Dutch hut are said to be from High German.

hide (v.1) 

Old English hydan (transitive and intransitive) "to hide, conceal; preserve; hide oneself; bury a corpse," from West Germanic *hudjan (cognates: Middle Dutch, Middle Low German huden), from suffixed form of PIE *keudh- (source also of Greek keuthein "to hide, conceal"), from root *(s)keu- "to cover, conceal" (see hide (n.1)).

Its general sense in Middle English was "insight, vision; hallucination;" meaning "a cataclysmic event" is modern. As agent nouns, apocalypst (1829), apocalypt (1834), and apocalyptist (1835) have been tried.

But it also might be from, or influenced by, Medieval Latin machio, matio (7c.) which is said by Isidore to be derived from machina (see machine). The medieval word also might be from the root of Latin maceria "wall." Meaning "a Freemason" is attested from early 15c. in Anglo-French.

Spelling influenced 16c. by unrelated mouse, "when mose had long been obsolete as an independent word" [OED]. The proper plural is titmouses.

mouse (n.) 

Old English mus "small rodent," also "muscle of the arm," from Proto-Germanic *mus (cognates: Old Norse, Old Frisian, Middle Dutch, Danish, Swedish mus, Dutch muis, German Maus "mouse"), from PIE *mus- (cognates: Sanskrit mus "mouse, rat," Old Persian mush "mouse," Old Church Slavonic mysu, Latin mus, Lithuanian muse "mouse," Greek mys "mouse, muscle").

vaudeville (n.) 

1735, "a country song," especially one for the stage, from French vaudeville (16c.), alteration (by influence of ville "town") of Middle French vaudevire, said to be from (chanson du) Vau de Vire "(song of the) valley of Vire," in the Calvados region of Normandy, first applied to the popular satirical songs of Olivier Basselin, a 15c. poet who lived in Vire. The alternative explanation is that vaudevire derives from Middle French dialectal vauder "to go" + virer "to turn." From the popularity of the songs in France grew a form of theatrical entertainment based on parodies of popular opera and drama, interspersed with songs.

The Théatre du Vaudeville is rich in parodies, which follow rapidly upon every new piece given at the Opera, or at the Théatre Français. Their parody upon Hamlet is too ludicrous for description, but irresistibly laughable; and the elegaut light ballet of La Colombe Retrouvée [The Dove found again], I saw parodied at the Vaudeville as "La Maison Retrouvée" [The House found again], with a breadth of farce quite beyond the genius of Sadler's Wells. Some of the acting here, particularly that of the men, is exquisite; and the orchestra like all the orchestras in Paris is full and excellent. ["France in 1816," by Lady Morgan]

As a sort of popular stage variety entertainment show suitable for families, from c. 1881 in U.S., displaced by movies after c. 1914, considered dead from 1932.

Meaning "socially appropriate, decent, respectable" is first recorded 1704. Proper name "name belonging to or relating to the person or thing in question," is from late 13c., a sense also preserved in astronomical proper motion(c. 1300). Proper noun is from c. 1500.

gander (n.) 

Old English gandra "male goose," from Proto-Germanic *gan(d)ron (cognates: Dutch gander, Middle Low German ganre), from PIE *ghans- "goose" (see goose (n.)). OED suggests perhaps it was originally the name of some other water-bird and cites Lithuanian gandras "stork." Sometimes used 19c. in reference to single men or male-only gatherings (compare stag).

There was a white mouse consultation
Down at the county fair
All the church mice, field mice and not
so nice mice
Everybody gathered there
You see the muckidy muck he was
speakin', tellin' them where it was at
He said hear, hear there ain't nothin' to fear
Except a three eyed Siamese cat
And the crowd was stunned
See, no single mouse had ever seen one
He said don't be scared
We're prepared.

Then he held up a great big picture
So every mouse could see
What a three eyed Siamese cat looked like
The face of the enemy
And the crowd let out such a shudder
As they lined up file and rank
Starin' at a twenty foot picture frame
Surroundin' a twenty foot blank
Just empty space
But every single mouse
Swore he saw a face
He said don't be scared
We're prepared

Then the muckidy much started screamin'
Yellin' till his voice gave out
He said now that you've seen what the
cat looks like
Gonna tell you what he's all about
He said he don't eat cheese on Friday
And he goes around lickin' his paws
He's awful mean and he loves to keep clean
And believes in changin' laws
And the crowd went wild
And every mouse began to fear for his child
Don't scared
We're prepared.

Now two times two is forty-five
The muckidy muck explained
And the flat side of the moon is green
And the farmer don't need no rain
And the night is light and might is right
And Supermouse is on our side
And the three eyed Siamese cat's a plague
From which nobody can hide
And the mice all cringed
The whiskers of that cat would soon
be singed
Don't be scared
We're prepared.

Bobby Darin "The Proper Gander" From the album Bobby Darin - "Born Walden Robert Cassotto" 1968

Then the muckidy muck started singin'
Through his great paternal grin
And the church mice, field mice
All the patriotic mice
Everybody chimed right in
They sang this land is mice land
Mice country tis of thee
Well my father took it from the beaver rat
Nobody's gonna take it from me
And the mice all cheered
The sound that they were makin' sure
was weird
Dont' be scared
We're prepared.

Then the muckidy muck said line up here
Everybody give a buck
To fight the three eyed Siamese cat
takes money
And a little bit of luck
We've got a million of our best young mice
To go out and volunteer
To give up what they're livin' for
To make the cat disappear
Let's give 'em a hand
We don't want that cat invadin' our land
No way
We're not scared
We're prepared.

Then a mighty strange thing happened
Guess you could call it fate
You see, a gust of wind blew the picture
frame down
And it landed on the muckidy muck's head
And the mice they all went crazy
For the first time they saw the lie
It was all a hoax on just simple folks
And the muckidy muck must die
And die he did
The members of his staff they just fled
They were scared
Just not prepared.

property (n.) 

c. 1300, properte, "nature, quality," later "possession, thing owned" (early 14c., a sense rare before 17c.), from an Anglo-French modification of Old French propriete "individuality, peculiarity; property" (12c., Modern French propreté; see propriety), from Latin proprietatem (nominative proprietas) "ownership, a property, propriety, quality," literally "special character" (a loan-translation of Greek idioma), noun of quality from proprius "one's own, special" (see proper). For "possessions, private property" Middle English sometimes used proper goodsHot property "sensation, a success" is from 1947 in "Billboard" stories.

sheep (n.) 

ruminant mammal, Old English sceapscep, from West Germanic *skæpan (cognates: Old Saxon scap, Old Frisian skep, Middle Low German schap, Middle Dutch scaep, Dutch schaap, Old High German scaf, German Schaf), of unknown origin. Not found in Scandinavian (Danish has faar for "sheep") or Gothic (which uses lamb), and with no known cognates outside Germanic. The more usual Indo-European word for the animal is represented in English by ewe

The plural form was leveled with the singular in Old English, but Old Northumbrian had a plural scipo. Used since Old English as a type of timidity and figuratively of those under the guidance of God. The meaning "stupid, timid person" is attested from 1540s. The image of the wolf in sheep's clothing was in Old English (from Matt. vii:15); that of separating the sheep from the goats is from Matt. xxv:33. To count sheep in a bid to induce sleep is recorded from 1854 but seems not to have been commonly written about until 1870s. It might simply be a type of a tedious activity, but an account of shepherd life from Australia from 1849 ["Sidney's Emigrant's Journal"] describes the night-shepherd ("hut-keeper") taking a count of the sheep regularly at the end of his shift to protect against being answerable for any animals later lost or killed. 

Sheep's eyes "loving looks" is attested from 1520s (compare West Frisian skiepseach, Dutch schaapsoog, German Schafsauge). A sheep-biter was "a dog that worries sheep" (1540s); "a mutton-monger" (1590s); and "a whore-monger" (1610s, i.e. one who "chases mutton"); hence Shakespeare's sheep-biting "thieving, sneaky.

flock (n.2) 

"tuft of wool," mid-13c., also found in continental Germanic and Scandinavian, all probably from Old French floc, from Latin floccus "flock of wool, lock of hair."

flock (n.1) 

Old English flocc "a group of persons, company, troop," related to Old Norse flokkr "crowd, troop, band," Middle Low German vlocke "crowd, flock (of sheep);" of unknown origin, not found in other Germanic languages; perhaps related to folc "people," but the metathesis would have been unusual for Old English. 

In Old English of humans only; extended c. 1200 to "a number of animals of one kind moving or feeding together;" of domestic animals c. 1300. The special reference to birds is recent (19c.). Transferred to bodies of Christians, in relation to Christ or their pastor, from mid-14c.

flock (v.) 

c. 1300 "gather, congregate" (intransitive), from flock (n.1). Related: Flockedflocking.

folk (n.) 

Old English folc "common people, laity; men; people, nation, tribe; multitude; troop, army," from Proto-Germanic *folkam (cognates: Old Saxon folc, Old Frisian folk, Middle Dutch volc, Dutch volk, Old High German folc, German Volk "people"). Perhaps originally "host of warriors:" Compare Old Norse folk"people," also "army, detachment;" and Lithuanian pulkas "crowd," Old Church Slavonic pluku "division of an army," both believed to have been borrowed from Proto-Germanic. Old English folcstede could mean both "dwelling-place" and "battlefield." According to Watkins, from PIE *ple-go-, suffixed form of root *pele- (1) "to fill," which would make it cognate with Greek plethos "people, multitude." Superseded in most senses by people. Generally a collective noun in Middle English, however plural folks is attested from 15c. 

Old English folc was commonly used in forming compounds (59 are listed in the Clark Hall dictionary), such as folccwide "popular saying," folcgemot "town or district meeting;" folcwoh "deception of the public." Modern use of folk as an adjective is from c. 1850 (see folklore).

shepherd (n.) 

Old English sceaphierde, from sceap "sheep" (see sheep) + hierde "herder," from heord "a herd" (see herd (n.)). Similar formation in Middle Low German, Middle Dutch schaphirde, Middle High German schafhirte, German dialectal Schafhirt. Shepherds customarily were buried with a tuft of wool in hand, to prove on Doomsday their occupation and be excused for often missing Sunday church. Shepherd's pie is recorded from 1877.

shepherd (v.) 

1790, "to herd sheep," from shepherd (n.). The metaphoric sense of "watch over or guide" is first recorded 1820. Related: Shepherdedshepherding.

crook (n.) 

early 13c., "hook-shaped instrument or weapon," from Old Norse krokr "hook, corner," cognate with Old High German kracho"hooked tool," of obscure origin but perhaps related to a widespread group of Germanic kr- words meaning "bent, hooked." Meaning "swindler" is American English, 1879, from crooked in figurative sense of "dishonest" (1708). Crook "dishonest trick" was in Middle English.

wage (n.) 

c. 1300, "a payment for services rendered, reward, just deserts;" mid-14c., "salary paid to a provider of service," from Anglo-French and Old North French wage (Old French gage) "pledge, pay, reward," from Frankish *wadja- or another Germanic source (compare Old English wedd "pledge, agreement, covenant," Gothic wadi "pledge"), from Proto-Germanic *wadi- (see wed (v.)). 

Also from mid-14c., "a pledge, guarantee, surety" (usually in plural), and (c. 1400) "a promise or pledge to meet in battle." The "payment for service" sense by late 14c. extended to allotments of money paid at regular intervals for continuous or repeated service. Traditionally in English wages were payment for manual or mechanical labor and somewhat distinguished from salary or fee. Modern French cognate gages (plural) means "wages of a domestic," one of a range of French "pay" words distinguished by class, such as traitement (university professor), payesalaire (workman), solde (soldier), récompenseprix. The Old English word was lean, related to loan and representing the usual Germanic word (Gothic laun, Dutch loon, German lohn). Wage-earnerattested from 1871.

wage (v.) 

c. 1300, "give (something) as surety, deposit as a pledge," from Old North French wagier "to pledge" (Old French gagier, "to pledge, guarantee, promise; bet, wager, pay," Modern French gager), from wage (see wage (n.)). Meaning "to carry on, engage in" (of war, etc.) is attested from mid-15c., probably from earlier sense of "to offer as a gage of battle, agree to engage in combat" (mid-14c.). Related: Wagedwaging.

slave (n.) 

late 13c., "person who is the chattel or property of another," from Old French esclave (13c.), from Medieval Latin Sclavus "slave" (source also of Italian schiavo, French esclave, Spanish esclavo), originally "Slav" (see Slav); so used in this secondary sense because of the many Slavs sold into slavery by conquering peoples.

This sense development arose in the consequence of the wars waged by Otto the Great and his successors against the Slavs, a great number of whom they took captive and sold into slavery. [Klein]

Meaning "one who has lost the power of resistance to some habit or vice" is from 1550s. Applied to devices from 1904, especially those which are controlled by others (compare slave jib in sailing, similarly of locomotives, flash bulbs, amplifiers). Slave-driveris attested from 1807; extended sense of "cruel or exacting task-master" is by 1854. Slave state in U.S. history is from 1812. Slave-trade is attested from 1734. 

Old English Wealh "Briton" also began to be used in the sense of "serf, slave" c.850; and Sanskrit dasa-, which can mean "slave," apparently is connected to dasyu- "pre-Aryan inhabitant of India." Grose's dictionary (1785) has under Negroe "A black-a-moor; figuratively used for a slave," without regard to race. More common Old English words for slave were þeow (related to þeowian"to serve") and þræl (see thrall). The Slavic words for "slave" (Russian rab, Serbo-Croatian rob, Old Church Slavonic rabu) are from Old Slavic *orbu, from the PIE root *orbh- (also source of orphan), the ground sense of which seems to be "thing that changes allegiance" (in the case of the slave, from himself to his master). The Slavic word is also the source of robot.


Indian tribe of northwestern Canada, 1789, from slave (n.), translating Cree (Algonquian) awahkan "captive, slave."

slave (v.) 

1550s, "to enslave," from slave (n.). The meaning "work like a slave" is first recorded 1719. Related: Slavedslaving.

sex (n.) 

late 14c., "males or females collectively," from Latin sexus "a sex, state of being either male or female, gender," of uncertain origin.

Meaning "quality of being male or female" first recorded 1520s. Meaning "sexual intercourse" first attested 1929 (in writings of D.H. Lawrence); meaning "genitalia" is attested from 1938. Sex appeal attested by 1904.

For the raw sex appeal of the burlesque "shows" there is no defense, either. These "shows" should be under official supervision, at the least, and boys beneath the age of eighteen forbidden, perhaps, to attend their performance, just as we forbid the sale of liquors to minors. [Walter Prichard Eaton, "At the New Theatre and Others: The American Stage, Its Problems and Performances," Boston, 1910]

Sex drive is from 1918; sex object is 1901; sex symbol is 1871 in anthropology; the first person to whom the term was applied seems to have been Marilyn Monroe (1959). Sex therapist is from 1974.

shack (n.) 

1878, American English and Canadian English, of unknown origin, perhaps from Mexican Spanish jacal, from Nahuatl (Aztecan) xacalli "wooden hut." Or perhaps a back-formation from dialectal English shackly "shaky, rickety" (1843), a derivative of shack, a dialectal variant of shake (v.). Another theory derives shack from ramshackle

Slang meaning "house" attested by 1910. In early radio enthusiast slang, it was the word for a room or office set aside for wireless use, 1919, perhaps from earlier U.S. Navy use (1917).

Apparently first in English as a military word. Old Saxon hutta, Danish hytte, Swedish hytta, Frisian and Middle Dutch hutte, Dutch hut are said to be from High German.

person (n.) 

early 13c., from Old French persone "human being, anyone, person" (12c., Modern French personne) and directly from Latin persona "human being, person, personage; a part in a drama, assumed character," originally "mask, false face," such as those of wood or clay worn by the actors in later Roman theater. OED offers the general 19c. explanation of persona as "related to" Latin personare "to sound through" (i.e. the mask as something spoken through and perhaps amplifying the voice), "but the long o makes a difficulty ...." Klein and Barnhart say it is possibly borrowed from Etruscan phersu "mask." Klein goes on to say this is ultimately of Greek origin and compares Persephone

rat (n.) 

late Old English ræt "rat," of uncertain origin. Similar words are found in Celtic (Gaelic radan), Romanic (Italian ratto, Spanish rata, French rat) and Germanic (Old Saxon ratta; Dutch rat; German Ratte, dialectal Ratz; Swedish råtta, Danish rotte) languages, but connection is uncertain and origin unknown. In all this it is very much like cat

Perhaps from Vulgar Latin *rattus, but Weekley thinks this is of Germanic origin, "the animal having come from the East with the race-migrations" and the word passing thence to the Romanic languages. American Heritage and Tucker connect Old English ræt to Latin rodere and thus PIE *red- "to scrape, scratch, gnaw," source of rodent (q.v.). Klein says there is no such connection and suggests a possible cognate in Greek rhine "file, rasp." Weekley connects them with a question mark and Barnhart writes, "the relationship to each other of the Germanic, Romance, and Celtic words for rat is uncertain." OED says "probable" the rat word spread from Germanic to Romanic, but takes no position on ultimate origin.

RATS. Of these there are the following kinds: a black rat and a grey rat, a py-rat and a cu-rat. ["Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue," Grose, 1788]

Middle English common form was ratton, from augmented Old French form raton. Sense of "one who abandons his associates" (1620s) is from belief that rats leave a ship about to sink or a house about to fall and led to meaning "traitor, informant" (1902; verb 1910). Interjection rats is American English, 1886. To smell a rat is 1540s; "to be put on the watch by suspicion as the cat by the scent of a rat; to suspect danger" [Johnson]. _____-rat, "person who frequents _____" (in earliest reference dock-rat) is from 1864.

Guelph (n.) 

also Guelf, one of the two great parties in medieval Italian politics, characterized by support of the popes against the emperors (opposed to the Ghibellines), 1570s, from Italian Guelfo, from Old High German Welf, name of a princely family that became the ducal house of Brunswick, literally "whelp," originally the name of the founder (Welf I). The family are the ancestors of the present dynasty of Great Britain. The name is said to have been used as a war-cry at the Battle of Weinsberg (1140) by partisans of Henry the Lion, duke of Bavaria, who was of the family, against Emperor Conrad III; hence it was adopted in Italy as the name of the anti-imperial party in the Middle Ages.



“In law, the process of choosing a domicile within the jurisdiction of a specific government is called “animus manendi”.
26 Latin is used to describe the process because judges don’t want you knowing that you can choose NOT to be protected by
27 the civil statutory law. That choice makes you a consenting party to the “civil contract”, “social compact”, and “private
28 law” that attaches to and therefore protects all “inhabitants” and things physically situated on or within that specific
29 territory, venue, and jurisdiction. In a sense then, your consent to a specific jurisdiction by your choice of domicile within
30 that jurisdiction is what creates the civil statutory "person", "individual", "citizen", "resident", or "inhabitant" which is the
31 only proper subject of the civil statutory laws enacted by that government. In other words, choosing a domicile within a
32 specific jurisdiction causes an implied waiver of sovereign immunity, because the courts admit that the term "person" does
33 not refer to the "sovereign":
34 “Since in common usage, the term person does not include the sovereign, statutes not employing the phrase
35 are ordinarily construed to exclude it.”
36 [United States v. Cooper Corporation, 312 U.S. 600 (1941)]
37 “Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law for it is the author and source of law;”
38 [Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 U.S. 356 (1886)]
39 “There is no such thing as a power of inherent Sovereignty in the government of the United States. In this
40 country sovereignty resides in the People, and Congress can exercise no power which they have not, by their
41 Constitution entrusted to it: All else is withheld.”
42 [Juilliard v. Greenman, 110 U.S. 421 (1884)]
43 Those who have become customers of government protection by choosing a civil domicile within a specific government
