Escaping Society's Brainwashing


Political Age of Illuminated Enlightenment Revolutions Lead To World Wide Endless, Electronically Contrived, So-Called Cultural "Evolutions"

All Types of Mass Communications Were Always The Medium of Government

Communication systems grow government. Word of mouth hearsay morphs and evolves into endless mass electronic multimedia barrage.

Powerful mind altering, highly addictive handheld programming shape human behavior. Government as we know it today would not exist were it not for the power of the modern communications system. Screens act as magical talismans that craft alternate realities that mask the Natural world. A real revolution is unlikely be televised.

The Real Weapon Of Mass Destruction:

Here's a link to an updated version of this article that is a more thorough look at how the News Media works with government to craft a very artificial realty most believe to be real. Please click here: Weapons of Mass Destruction: The Apocalypse of The Problem Reaction Solution Conditioning Echo Chamber for more.

This article looks at the city itself as an example of an artifact of civilization and culture, tools of imposing, what turns out to be a very impersonal and inhuman systems of external control by means of government, on humanity. Despite all the talk of democracies and the rest of the mythology of 'liberty', we are not anywhere as near as free as advertised as we are subjected to a myriad of more borders, laws, taxes, fees, fines and possible needless jail time, for victimless crime, today than before 1776.

The few have long manipulated the many into forever turning the wheel of industry for eternity, or so it seems. The few created slavery and the few still impose forms of less obvious slavey on us all. We tend to take the tolls and endless lines of traffic and licensing and auto insurance fees, for granted. Border walls and cartoon national identifies and passports to protect us from scripted comic book villains that lurk around every corner, or so the News media and governmental agencies keep claiming, like the Boy Who Cried for Chicken Little, are tools used to manage humanity like cattle. Most take all of this and all the rest, for granted. This fear conditioning allows many of us to accept and even demand our very real economic slavery. We are tax based wage slaves tied to an inhuman system of ever growing cancerous government. Humanity is driven by fear based conditioning into herds of more easily managed politically divided communities that have faith in the need for generating ever new layers of law and government. Fictional biblical bogeymen have long been used as Platonic Shadow threats to keep us the mass of humanity in our place as another natural resource to be exploited.

It's difficult for most to accept how fake the News actually is and how much of a hoax history turns out to be.


We were born into a world of electronically connected televised media and many of us ignore this very real medium of governmental control like fish do water.


Cultural Elitism Is Demonstrable Reality: There Are Many Ways To Divide Humanity Into Subgroups

Societies rely on various forms of class discrimination.

Age of Enlightenment style revolutions work out great for those in the right (rising) social classes, but not for everyone.


Utopia and New Atlantis are real for those higher up the proverbial world wide social pyramid structure.

"Elitism is the belief or attitude that individuals who form an elite—a select group of people with a certain ancestry, intrinsic quality, high intellect, wealth, specialized training, experience, or talents—are more likely to be constructive to society as a whole, and therefore deserve influence or authority greater than that of others. In America, the term "elitism" often refers to the concentration of power on the Northeast Corridor and West Coast, where the typical American elite - lawyers, doctors, high-level civil servants (such as White House aides), businesspeople, university lecturers, entrepreneurs and financial advisors in the quarternary sector - reside, often in the university towns they graduated from. Alternatively, the term elitism may be used to describe a situation in which power is concentrated in the hands of a limited number of people. Oppositions of elitism include anti-elitism, egalitarianism, populism and political theory of pluralism. Elite theory is the sociological or political science analysis of elite influence in society: elite theorists regard pluralism as a utopian ideal.

'Elitism' also refers to situations in which an individual assumes special 'privileges' and responsibilities in the hope that this arrangement will benefit humanity or themselves. Elitism is closely related to social class and what sociologists call social stratification. Members of the upper classes are sometimes known as the social elite. The term elitism is also sometimes used to denote situations in which a group of people claiming to possess high abilities or simply an in-group or cadre grant themselves extra privileges at the expense of others. This form of elitism may be described as discrimination."

Societies Needs Cities: Crafting Brave New Worlds

Before hand held "smart" screens there was brick and mortar. Stone was and still is a medium of governmental order.

Governments rely on urbanization to survive and thrive. City walls protect citizens from existential threats. Today virtual walls are designed to protect us. We have borders and need for passports and all sorts of fees, fines, and other forms of paperwork (now digital) bureaucratic maze gameplay.  The proverbial city mouse is a different creature from the more self reliant country mouse.

"You can tell what's informing a society by what the tallest building is."

"When you approach a medieval town, the cathedral is the tallest thing in the place. When you approach an eighteenth-century town, it is the political palace that's the tallest thing in the place. And when you approach a modern city, the tallest places are the office buildings, the center of economic life." Joseph Campbell, "The Power of Myth with Bill Moyers" (Copyright © 1988 by Apostrophe S Productions and Alfred van der Marck Editions), p. 95-96

Idealopolis

"An ideal city is the concept of a plan for a city that has been conceived in accordance with the dictates of some "rational" or "moral" objective."

"The "ideal" nature of such a city may encompass the moral, spiritual and juridical qualities of citizenship as well as the ways in which these are realised through urban structures including buildings, street layout, etc. The ground plans of ideal cities are often based on grids (in imitation of Roman town planning) or other geometrical patterns. The ideal city is often an attempt to deploy Utopian ideals at the local level of urban configuration and living space and amenity rather than at the culture- or civilisation-wide level of the classical Utopias such as St Thomas More's."

"Examples of the ideal cities include Filarete's "Sforzinda", a description of which was included in his Trattato di Architettura (c. 1465). The city of Sforzinda was laid out within an eight-pointed star inscribed within a circular moat. Further examples may have been intended to have been read into the so-called "Urbino" and "Baltimore" panels (second half of the fifteenth century), which show Classically influenced architecture disposed in logically planned piazzas. The cities of Nicosia and Valletta, whose fortifications were built in the 1560s by the Republic of Venice and Order of St. John respectively, are considered to be practical examples of the concept of the ideal city. Other notable example of the concept is Zamość in eastern Poland founded in the late 16th century, modelled by the Italian architect Bernardo Morando. James Oglethorpe synthesized Classical and Renaissance concepts of the ideal city with new Enlightenment ideals of scientific planning, harmony in design, and social equality in his plan for the Province of Carolina. The physical design component of the famous Oglethorpe Plan remains preserved in the Savannah Historic District. Late nineteenth-century examples of the ideal city include the Garden city movement of Sir Ebenezer Howard, realised at Letchworth Garden City and Welwyn Garden City in England. Poundbury, Prince Charles' architectural vision established in Dorset, is among the most recent examples of ideal city planning."

Thomas Jefferson & The Three False Prophets Of Sun Based Sophistry

Bacon, Locke and Newton

"Francis Bacon played a leading role in creating the English colonies, especially in Virginia, the Carolinas, and Newfoundland in northeastern Canada. His government report on "The Virginia Colony" was submitted in 1609. In 1610 Bacon and his associates received a charter from the king to form the Tresurer and the Companye of Adventurers and planter of the Cittye of London and Bristoll for the Collonye or plantacon in Newfoundland and sent John Guy to found a colony there. In 1910 Newfoundland issued a postage stamp to commemorate Bacon's role in establishing the province. The stamp describes Bacon as "the guiding spirit in colonization scheme" of 1610. Moreover, some scholars believe he was largely responsible for the drafting, in 1609 and 1612, of two charters of government for the Virginia Colony."

"Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence, wrote: "Bacon, Locke and Newton. I consider them as the three greatest men that have ever lived, without any exception, and as having laid the foundation of those superstructures which have been raised in the Physical and Moral sciences". Historian and biographer William Hepworth Dixon considered that Bacon's name could be included in the list of Founders of the United States of America."

TAXES NEED TO BE PAID: ROADS TO CEMETERIES NEED TO BE PAVED

Immigration control means population control. Peasants need feudal prisons.

Licenses, census forms, social security numbers, birth certificates, fees, fines, taxes and jail time are the marks of the allegorical beast. The Biblical beast is simply the inhuman system of human governance unnaturally or supernaturally imposed on the Natural world. The real world is occulted or screened by the scripted fictional work of imagined human construct. Ours is truly a virtual world and this is the way of civilization itself. Civilization means virtual reality. Civil society is bound together by myths and endless reenactment of those myths (ritual). Breads and circus and all sorts of burlesque style, side show distractions, keep most of us chained to the Saturnian, Devil-beast that is the artificially imposed social order of our collective world of human creation.


A Divided Vision of The Four Horses of Empire Division, Imperial Oppression, Empire Prosperity & Eventual Demise:

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Revealed As Tools For Population Control

"...so that workers would struggle to feed their families."

"The third Horseman rides a black horse and is popularly understood to be Famine as the Horseman carries a pair of balances or weighing scales, indicating the way that bread would have been weighed during a famine. Other authors interpret the third Horseman as the "Lord as a Law-Giver" holding Scales of Justice. In the passage, it is read that the indicated price of grain is about ten times normal (thus the famine interpretation popularity), with an entire day's wages (a denarius) buying enough wheat for only one person, or enough of the less nutritious barley for three, so that workers would struggle to feed their families."

"According to Edward Bishop Elliott's interpretation, through this third seal, the black horse is unleashed — aggravated distress and mourning. The balance in the rider's hand is not associated with a man's weighing out bits of bread in scanty measure for his family's eating but in association with the buying and selling of corn and other grains. The balance during the time of the apostle John's exile in Patmos was commonly a symbol of justice since it was used to weigh out the grains for a set price. The balance of justice held in the hand of the rider of the black horse signified the aggravation of the other previous evil, the bloodstained red of the Roman aspect into the darker blackness of distress. :161,164–167,170The black horse rider is instructed not to harm the oil and the wine which signifies that this scarcity should not fall upon the superfluities, such as oil and wine, which men can live without, but upon the necessities of life — bread."

Occult Just Means Screen: Don't Fear Imagined Reapers

Supernatural is a term that refers to something that only exists in human imagination. Phantom menace, bogeyman threats have long been used as impetus for shepherding the mass public into easily managed human workforce based communities.

Religion and government are essentially one and the same thing and both rely on heavy doses of mythical reasoning and ritualistic behavior.


The World is One Big Holy Roaming Enterprise: Nation States Are Fake

Behind the scenes and screens, the world has long been run as one big global banking enterprise and is so to this day.

Governments do not serve any of us, we serve government.

For ages people have had to truly believe in the need for guarded castle walls and city gates as necessary means of governmental protection in the first place. The proverbial Four Apocalyptic Horsemen have long served governmental purpose and do so to this day. The inhuman system of centuries long governance lies at the heart of the problem with the world of human affairs. Our collective history, assumed by too many to be as true as advertised, turns out to be a historical narrative that is made with liberal helpings of lies. Mythic "fibs" bind human minds to unnatural systems of external governance. All of humanity, from lowest serf to highest Queen, all of us would seem to be victims of long standing "occulted" and " supernatural" systems of thought and behavior control that most of us simply do not see.

Washington DC (Divide & Conquer): A Capital City

"In his Federalist No. 43, published January 23, 1788, James Madison argued that the new federal government would need authority over a national capital to provide for its own maintenance and safety. Five years earlier, a band of unpaid soldiers besieged Congress while its members were meeting in Philadelphia. Known as the Pennsylvania Mutiny of 1783, the event emphasized the need for the national government not to rely on any state for its own security.  Article One, Section Eight, of the Constitution permits the establishment of a "District (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular states, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the government of the United States". However, the Constitution does not specify a location for the capital. In what is now known as the Compromise of 1790, Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and Thomas Jefferson came to an agreement that the federal government would pay each state's remaining Revolutionary War debts in exchange for establishing the new national capital in the Southern United States."

New Atlantis: A False Prophet's Vision

"This novel may have been Bacon's vision for a Utopian New World in North America. In it he depicted a land where there would be freedom of religion – showing a Jew treated fairly and equally in an island of Christians, but it has been debated whether this work had influenced others reforms, such as greater rights for women, the abolition of slavery, elimination of debtors' prisons, separation of church and state, and freedom of political expression although there is no hint of these reforms in The New Atlantis itself. His propositions of legal reform (which were not established in his lifetime), though, are considered to have been one of the influences behind the Napoleonic Code, and therefore could show some resemblance with or influence in the drafting of other liberal constitutions that came in the centuries after Bacon's lifetime, such as the American Constitution."

A Solar Obsessed Culture: The City of The Sun Exposed

Heliocentric City: The House of Ra, "The Pillars"

"Heliopolis is the latinized form of the Ptolemaic Greek name Hēlioúpolis (Ἡλιούπολις), meaning "City of the Sun". Helios, the personified and deified form of the sun, was identified by the Greeks with the native Egyptian gods Ra and Atum, whose principal cult was located in the city. Its native name was I͗wnw ("The Pillars"), whose exact pronunciation is uncertain because ancient Egyptian recorded only consonantal values. Its traditional Egyptological transcription is Iunu but it appears in biblical Hebrew as Ôn (אן‎) and Āwen (און‎), leading some scholars to reconstruct its pronunciation as *Āwanu. Variant transcriptions include Awnu and Annu. The city also appears in the Old Kingdom Pyramid Texts as the "House of Ra"."

The Place of Pillars: Sun City

"The chief cult center of Ra was Iunu, the "Place of Pillars", later known to the Greeks as Heliopolis (lit. "Sun City") and today located in the suburbs of Cairo. He was identified with the local sun god Atum. As Atum or Atum-Ra, he was reckoned the first being and the originator of the Ennead ("The Nine"), consisting of Shuand Tefnut, Geb and Nut, Osiris, Set, Isis and Nephthys. The holiday of 'The Receiving of Ra' was celebrated on May 26 in the Gregorian calendar."

The City of The Sun: Civitas Solis

"The book is presented as a dialogue between "a Grandmaster of the Knights Hospitaller and a Genoese Sea-Captain". Inspired by Plato's Republic and the description of Atlantis in Timaeus, it describes a theocratic society where goods, women and children are held in common."

"The City of the Sun (Italian: La città del Sole; Latin: Civitas Solis) is a philosophical work by the Italian Dominicanphilosopher Tommaso Campanella. It is an important early utopian work. The work was written in Italian in 1602, shortly after Campanella's imprisonment for heresy and sedition. A Latin version was written in 1613–1614 and published in Frankfurt in 1623."

"The book is presented as a dialogue between "a Grandmaster of the Knights Hospitaller and a Genoese Sea-Captain". Inspired by Plato's Republic and the description of Atlantis in Timaeus, it describes a theocratic society where goods, women and children are held in common. It also resembles the City of Adocentyn in the Picatrix, an Arabic grimoire of astrological magic. In the final part of the work, Campanella prophesies—in the veiled language of astrology—that the Spanish kings, in alliance with the Pope, are destined to be the instruments of a Divine Plan: the final victory of the True Faith and its diffusion in the whole world. While one could argue that Campanella was simply thinking of the conquest of the New World, it seems that this prophecy should be interpreted in the light of a work written shortly before The City of the Sun, The Monarchy in Spain, in which Campanella exposes his vision of a unified, peaceful world governed by a theocratic monarchy."

"Protected and defended by seven circles of walls, constructed of palaces that serve as dwellings for the citizens, the city is located in a place with an ideal climate, conducive to physical health, and on the slope of a hillside because the air there is lighter and purer. One of the most significant aspects of this community is the distribution of work. Once again Campanella engages in an explicit polemic with Aristotle, who had excluded artisans, peasants and those involved in manual labor from the category of full citizenship and from the highest levels of virtue. In the City of the Sun no occupation is vile or base, and all are of equal dignity—in fact, those workers who are required to expend greater effort, such as artisans and builders, receive more praise. Everyone must be acquainted with all lines of work, and then each person practices the one for which he shows the greatest aptitude. They have no servants, and no service is regarded as unworthy. The only thing that they consider to be despicable is idleness, and in this way they come to privilege the dignity of work and to overturn an absurd conception of nobility, linked to inactivity and vice.

Thanks to the equal division of labour, it is sufficient for each person to spend only four hours a day working; but it is essential that they all work, because the idleness of one would have repercussions on the profit and the effort of the others. The citizens possess nothing; instead, everything is held in common, from food to houses, from the acquisition of knowledge to the exercise of activities, from honors to amusements, from women to children. There are “officials” in charge of the distribution of each thing, who keep an eye out and make sure that this happens justly, but no one can appropriate anything for himself. According to them, possession of a house or a family reinforces “self-love”, with all the dire consequences this generates. They live “like philosophers in common” because they are aware of the negative impact, not only on the social but also on the moral level, of an unequal distribution of goods.

One of the most spectacular and imaginative aspects of The City of the Sun, which immediately struck its readers, are the painted walls of the city. Apart from enclosing and protecting the city, the walls are also the curtains of an extraordinary theater and the pages of an illustrated encyclopedia of knowledge. The walls of the palaces are painted with images of all the arts and sciences. Starting with the wall that holds up the columns of the temple and gradually descending in large circles, following the order of the planets from Mercury to Saturn, we encounter illustrations of the heavens and the stars, of mathematical figures, of every country on earth and of all the marvels and secrets of the mineral, vegetable and animal worlds, until we arrive at mankind: on the internal wall of the sixth circle the mechanical arts and their inventors are represented.

Campanella was greatly interested in all ingenious discoveries, and in The City of the Sun he provides many examples of curious inventions, such as vessels able to navigate without wind and without sails, and stirrups that make it possible to guide a horse using only one's feet, leaving one's hands free. On the external wall legislators are depicted; and it is here, in “a place of great honor”—but along with Moses, Osiris, Jove, Mercury and Muhammad—that the Genoese sailor recognizes Christ and the twelve apostles. Knowledge is not enclosed in books kept in separate places such as libraries but is openly on show to everyone's eyes. Visualizing in this manner promotes a quicker, easier and more efficient form of learning, in that it is connected to the art of memory, which underlines the evocative and emotive power of images. From a tender age children run around in this theater of knowledge, appropriately guided and following correct itineraries, so that they learn joyously, as if playing a game, without effort or pain. In addition to the community of goods and the painted walls, another characteristic feature of the City of the Sun, one that is more difficult and disconcerting and that Campanella himself describes as “hard and arduous”, is the community of wives. This is the solution adopted by the citizens to the problem of generation. Echoing the teaching of the Pythagorean Ocellus Lucanus, Campanella says that they are amazed that humans are preoccupied by the breeding of horses and dogs while neglecting their own. The act of generation entails a large responsibility of the part of the parents; and if it is exercised in an incorrect manner, it can give rise to a long chain of suffering. Moreover, there is a close connection between a person's natural “complexion” or character, which is inborn and not afterwards modifiable, and moral virtue, which needs a suitable terrain in order to take root and prosper. Generation should therefore respect precise norms and not be entrusted to chance nor to individual sentiments. The citizens distinguish between love and sex. Affection between men and women, based on friendship and respect more than sexual attraction, is expressed in acts that are far removed from sexuality, such as exchanges of gifts, conversation and dancing. Sexual generation, on the other hand, must obey strict rules regarding the physical and moral qualities of the parents and the choice of a propitious time for conception, determined by an astrologer. Such a union is not the expression of a personal, emotional or passionate relationship, but rather is connected to the social responsibility of generation and to love for the collective community. The religious beliefs of the citizenry, even though they include fundamental principles of Christianity (such as the immortality of the soul and divine providence), form a natural religion that establishes a sort of osmosis between the city and the stars. The temple is open and not surrounded by walls. In one of his poems Campanella promises: “I shall make the heavens a temple and the stars an altar”.[1] On the vault of the temple's dome the stars are depicted together with their influence on earthly affairs. The altar, on which are placed a celestial and a terrestrial globe, is in the form of the sun. Prayers are directed toward the heavens. The task of the twenty-four priests, who live in cells located in the highest part of the temple, is to observe the stars and, using astronomical instruments, to take account of all their movements. It is their job to indicate the times most favorable for generation and for agricultural labors, acting in this way as intermediaries between God and human beings."

"In Trento's Civic Library, there is kept a 1602 manuscript of The City of the Sun (shelf mark BCT1-1538), discovered in 1943 by Italian historian Luigi Firpo. It is considered the most ancient manuscript copy that has survived to present time. The text arrived at the Library through the baron Antonio Mazzetti [1] 's (1781–1841) bequest. He was a book collector and bibliophile and, as written in his will, he donated his book heritage to the Civic Library. The manuscript was restored in 1980. It is made of parchment tied on paperboard. It consists of two codicological unities joined together years after their writing: the first is a Venetian historical chronicle from 1297 to 1582, followed by a list of "Hospedali di Venezia" ("Hospitals in Venice"). At the bottom, it is sewed to a small-sized booklet independently enumerated: it's a copy by anonymous author of "The City of the Sun". The transcription is meticulous and there only are a few insignificant mistakes. In 2016, the manuscript was uploaded to the digital library Wikisource."
