"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, pull back the curtains, and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater." Frank Zappa
This chapter has nothing to do with surfing, but it has everything to do with what lies ahead for the sea of humanity. We have already seen several history rhymes that show the similarities of today's institution of cannibalistic slavery with the slavery of old. I would submit that working people of all nations are in a condition of servitude. Some are worse off than others. Some live quite comfortably; others emancipate themselves by suicide; and others are in between the high and low extremes. There's nothing new about this.
Another old book I bought for $6 a few years ago at a flea market near Murphy, N.C. was a book entitled The King's Reeve. It's one of those Uncle Tom's Cabin type books that depicts life at a certain period of history that's drawn from events that actually did happen. This book was written about life back in the Middle Ages during the time of King Edward the First in England. As the Rev. E. Gilliat stated in the preface to his book: "In the following pages the parts ascribed to the Reeve are taken from the ballad of John the Reeve, in Bishop Percy's collection: the stories about Edward the First are taken from various histories, and presumably not fiction." Edward the First was king of England from 1272 - 1307. This was the only book I've bought and read that didn't have a date on any page that indicated when it was printed. But I think it was probably printed in the late 1800's since Rev. E. Gilliat's other books were from that period. The book was bound in a fan-fold fashion, and I was probably the first to read it because every few pages I had to take a knife and slice through an outside fold in order to turn to the next page. According to Bouvier's Law Dictionary, the definition of "Reeve" is: "He was a ministerial officer appointed to execute process, keep the king's peace, and put the laws into execution. He witnessed all contracts and bargains, brought offenders to justice and delivered them to punishment, took bail for such as were to appear at the county court, and presided at the court of the folcmote. He was also called gerefa."1 The "folcmote" was the town meeting. In other words, the king's reeve was an executive officer that carried out the king's laws. He and his family lived very comfortably. They were a lot better off than the ordinary serfs. The question is: Was John the Reeve free or slave? In one of their many conversations, this is what Sir Reginald the Knight said to John the Reeve about his office under the King: "What! refuse the King's command! and you the King's bondman! Why, you will be put out of your office, and your lands confiscated man!"2 According to the standard dictionary I have, a "bondman" is a "male slave." So, your local sheriff and all other people who exercise police power in general are slaves today too; they just have special privileges over the common serfs. The cannibalistic slave beast does not discriminate, but the overseers have always gotten special privileges.
"Maud must be cautioned, for the rebel spirit is apt to spread like the black death: if the serfs get it into their heads to rise up against their lords, society would be broken up - there would be no more fines to be exacted, no more folk-moots to be assembled, there would be no more need of a King's Reeve."3
In the story there's a romance that buds and grows between Cyril, the son of Sir Reginald the Knight; and Molly, the daughter of John the Reeve. But alas! Poor Molly and Cyril could not be married because it was forbidden for the son of a Knight to marry the daughter of a bondman. But King Edward, having a good heart and seeing the love they had for each other, eventually made John the Reeve a Knight so they could be married. It was during Edward's reign that the Parliament was firmly established. Edward was able to subdue Whales and Scotland during his reign and bring them under the authority of the English crown. Let's look at what he did with the Jews.
"The darkest stain on Edward's reign was his treatment of the Jews. Up to this period that unfortunate race had been protected by the kings of England as men protect cattle which they fatten for slaughter. So long as they accumulated money, and so long as the sovereign could rob them of their accumulations when he saw fit, they were worth guarding. A time had now come when the populace demanded their expulsion from the island, on the ground that their usury and extortion were ruining the country. Edward yielded to the clamor, and first stripping the Jews of their possessions, he prepared to drive them into exile. It is said that even their books were taken from them and given to the libraries of Oxford. Thus pillaged, they were forced to leave the realm - a miserable procession, numbering some sixteen thousand. Many perished on the way, and so few ventured to return, that for four centuries and a half, until Cromwell came to power, they practically disappear from English history."4
Here's another example of a small minority being overwhelmed by the majority. Edward could have ignored the clamor and left the Jews alone, but the plunder and the enhancement of his popularity with the people proved to be too tempting. When I look at how helpless a small minority is when a great majority of the people turn on them, it reminds me of a spaghetti western comedy movie that starred Terence Hill and Henry Fonda from 1973 entitled My Name is Nobody. Hill plays "Nobody" and Fonda plays "Jack Beauregard." Beauregard was a tired, aging legend of the old west that Nobody was trying to get to have a showdown with a gang of outlaws called the "Wild Bunch." In one of the scenes of the movie, Nobody is describing what he envisioned that he wanted to see in this regard. Nobody was telling Beauregard that he envisioned him standing in the middle of an immense plain to face the Wild Bunch. Speaking with Beauregard, he described the Wild Bunch as "150 pure bred sons-a-bitches on horseback, and you facing em, - alone." Of course, Beauregard didn't like the idea. Would you? This would especially be true if you were unarmed. But instead of 150 pure bred sons-a-bitches, let's expand it to 150,000, or even 150 million. Get the picture? Montgomery, in some of his concluding remarks on the history of England, said:
"The danger in the past lay in the tyranny of the minority, that of the present is the tyranny of the majority. The great problem of our time is to learn how to reconcile the interests of each with the welfare of all. To do that, whether on an island or on a continent, in England or America, is to build up the kingdom of justice and good will upon the earth."5
Back to The King's Reeve one more time. During a conversation Cyril was having with Molly, he said: "And ye are not ashamed to be bondsmen to our Lord the King?" Molly responded by saying: "Ashamed! we are all too proud of the condition: talk not of being ashamed in my father's presence, I beg thee; for his one great pride is that the greatest knight in England is his overlord, and none that is less than the King can meddle with him so long as he does his duty, and keeps his tallies straight."6 Indeed, make sure that you file and pay your income taxes every year; and don't cheat either! There is nothing new under the sun.
On September 29, 1938, English Prime Minister Chamberlain met with Adolf Hitler in Munich about the issue of the annexation of Sudetenland, and terms were agreed to that deluded Chamberlain and many other people to believe that Hitler's appetite for power was satisfied. Winston Churchill dissented from the majority opinion of the time, and after hearing this news was reported to have said: "Those poor people! They little know what they will have to face."7 The crowds that welcomed Chamberlain's return from Munich rejoiced thinking that peace had been attained and they kept rejoicing for days after that. Churchill, in a speech he gave on October 5, 1938 in parliament, warned that peace had not been attained at all. He concluded this speech by saying:
"I do not grudge our loyal, brave people, who were ready to do their duty no matter what the cost, who never flinched under the strain of last week - I do not grudge them the natural, spontaneous outburst of joy and relief when they learned that the hard ordeal would no longer be required of them at the moment; but they should know the truth. They should know that there has been gross neglect and deficiency in our defenses; they should know that we have sustained a defeat without war, the consequences of which will travel far with us along our road; they should know that we have passed an awful milestone on our history, when the whole equilibrium of Europe has been deranged, and that the terrible words have for the time being been pronounced against the Western democracies: Thou art weighed in the balance and found wanting.' And do not suppose that this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we rise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time."8
We all know that Churchill's warnings went unheeded by the vast majority of people, and events soon led to World War II. The United Stated represents a far greater threat to world peace than Germany did back then. But if you live in the United States, the threat comes from within; and if the people do not rise up and take back their liberties that have been stolen from them, then this is just the beginning of the reckoning. In studying history I submit that most people fall into the category of "the path of least resistence." This being the case, we can assume that the waves will begin when the fruit becomes ripe, and hate, which becomes more abundant with time, is what ripens the fruit.
Alexander Solzhenitsyn used waves to describe the purging of the of the soviet system in the former USSR under Lenin and Stalin. What he was referring to were the great masses of people that were arrested and sent off to the prisons and slave labor camps (gulag).
"Although I have no statistics at hand, I am not afraid of erring when I say that the wave of 1937 and 1938 was neither the only one nor even the main one, but only one, perhaps, of the three biggest waves which strained the murky, stinking pipes of our prison sewers to bursting. Before it came the wave of 1929 and 1930, the size of a good River Ob, which drove a mere fifteen million peasants, maybe even more, out into the taiga and then tundra. But peasants are a silent people, without a literary voice, nor do they write complaints or memoirs. No interrogators sweated out the night with them, nor did they bother to draw up formal indictments - it was enough to have a decree from the village soviet. This wave poured forth, sank down into the permafrost, and even our most active minds recall hardly a thing about it. It is as if it had not even scarred the Russian conscience. And yet Stalin (and you and I as well) committed no crime more heinous than this. And after it was the wave of 1944 to 1946, the size of a good Yenisei, when they dumped whole nations down the sewer pipes, not to mention millions and millions of others who (because of us!) had been prisoners of war, or carried off to Germany and subsequently repatriated. (This was Stalin's method of cauterizing the wounds so that scar tissue would form more quickly, and thus the body politic as a whole would not have to rest up, catch its breath, regain its strength.) But in this wave, too, the people were of the simpler kind, and they wrote no memoirs."9
Let's look at the thousands of yearly child support jailings that happen in contempt proceedings in another light. The first thing to note is that this class, with few exceptions, comes from the ranks of common working people who work for wages. They are people who live week to week and most of them have little or no savings. Hence they are easily exploited because they have no wealth. They make the perfect class to experiment with because the lawyers can't make any money off of them. You make money off the receiving end of the slavery, which is heavily subsidized. The second thing is how the people, as a whole, have reacted to this. Since it's been going on for many years now it seems normal. Most people have accepted it as a good thing. It's the same process that's been used to make us think we have a legal duty to file and pay income tax on our labor. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. So, the labor cannibals have been able to numb the people already when it comes to jailing people by the thousands in star chamber type proceedings. Since the people are already used to this type of procedure, it's highly unlikely that most people would object to expanding this type of thing to encompass all those, for example, who are labeled as "tax protestors." While we're at it, we can get rid of other problems that adversely affect society. The drug problem, for example. Indeed, there's lots of fodder out there. These types of courts are absolutely necessary for the waves to begin; and, after that, serf is up for wave after wave after wave. It all starts with the arrest. "That's what arrest is: it's a blinding flash and a blow which shifts the present insanity into the past and the impossible into omnipotent actuality."10 Then these star chamber type tribunals simply rubber stamp the sentences and off you go! In fact, you may not even have to see the judge at all! Isn't that great! "The judges were depressingly faceless and emotionless - rubber stamps. The sentences came off the same assembly line."11
"It would have been impossible to carry out this hygienic purging, especially under wartime conditions, if they had had to follow outdated legal processes and normal judicial procedures. And so an entirely new form was adopted: extrajudicial reprisal, and this thankless job was self-sacrificingly assumed by the Cheka, the Sentinel of the Revolution, which was the only punitive organ in human history that combined in one set of hands investigation, arrest, interrogation, prosecution, trial, and execution of the verdict."12
This pretty much sums up the power of "family courts" today. Ironic, isn't it? The courts that are used to destroy families and further enslave people by the millions are called "family courts." This is as insane as calling courts that issue execution orders by the millions "living courts." It doesn't make any sense. But the important thing is that people are now accustomed to these types of courts and they accept them. Gleichschaltung!
"We forget everything. What we remember is not what actually happened, not history, but merely that hackneyed dotted line they have chosen to drive into our memories by incessant hammering. I do not know whether this is a trait common to all mankind, but it certainly is a trait of our people, and it is a vexing one. It may have its source in goodness, but it is vexing nonetheless. It makes us easy prey for liars. Therefore, if they demand that we even forget the public trials, we forget them. The proceedings were open and were reported in our newspapers, but they didn't drill a hole in our brains to make us remember - and so we've forgotten them. Only things repeated on the radio day after day drill holes in the brain. I am not even talking about young people, since they, of course, know nothing of all this, but about people who were alive at the time of those trials."13 (My note: In all the years you spent in the government schools, do you recall seeing "free labor" in a textbook or hearing "free labor" come out of a teacher's mouth? Have you ever heard "free labor" used in the media? Have you seen "free labor" in any newspapers? Do you think this happens by accident?)
Another reason I believe that waves are in our future is the population explosion itself. When Jesus walked the earth it's estimated that the world population was around 200 million people. That was 2000 years ago. In 1900, the world population was around 2 billion people. In 2000, the world population was around 6.1 billion people. By 2050, it is projected to be around 9.2 billion people. A recent History Channel program reported that experts claim that the earth can only support around 8 billion people, assuming nothing happens to the climate. So it's very likely that the waves will be worldwide in their scope. In other words, the millions will most likely turn into billions. I know that most people don't like to think of this, but I think it's time to look it right in the face. Closing your eyes and sticking your head in the sand will not stop it from happening. I'm sure that Winston Churchill would have agreed.
Back when the O.J. Simpson trial was all over the media and the press back in 1995, from September 27th -October 1st of that year, in San Francisco, The State of the World Forum took place, sponsored by the Gorbachev Foundation. A lot world leaders were there. Among them, as reported in the October 30, 1995 issue of The New American magazine, were: "former Secretaries of State James Baker and George Shultz (both co-chairs of the forum), former President George Bush, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, President Askar Akaev of Kyrgystan, former President Oscar Arias of Costa Rica, Prime Minister Tansu Ciller of Turkey, Czech Republic President Vaclav Havel, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, and South African Vice President Thabo Mbeki. Additional participants included: Worldwatch President Lester Brown; New Age gurus Fritjof Capra, Jeremy Rifkin, Willis Harman, Deepak Chopra, Robert Muller, and Matthew Fox; Marxist poetess Rigoberta Menchu; Earth Council president and billionaire eco-warrior Maurice Strong; Microsoft wizard Bill Gates; media mogul Rupert Murdoch; futurists Alvin Toffler and John Naisbitt; Senator George Mitchell; Archer Daniels Midland CEO Dwayne Andreas; computer tycoon David Packard; Esalen founder Michael Murphy; motivation superstar Tony Robbins; Men's Wearhouse CEO George Zimmer; chimpanzee expert Jane Goodall -- not to mention Zbigniew Brzezinski, Carl Sagan, John Denver, Shirley MacLaine, Dennis Weaver, Ted Turner, Jane Fonda, Theodore Hesburgh, Timothy Wirth, Max Kampleman, Milton Friedman, Randall Forsberg, Saul Mendlovitz, and Alan Cranston." Needless to say, a lot of money and power were present. This article concluded by saying: "In the closing plenary session of the forum, philosopher/author Sam Keen summarized the consensus of the learned ones. Among the conference participants, said Keen, there was very strong agreement that religious institutions have to take primary responsibility for the population explosion. We must speak far more clearly about sexuality, about contraception, about abortion, about the values that control the population, because the ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis. Cut the [world's] population by 90 percent and there aren't enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage.' How do we cut' the planet's population by 90 percent? Even genocidal mass murderers Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, and Mao combined did not come close to attaining such a lofty' goal. As always, the devil is in the details. Forum participant Barbara Marx Hubbard may already have provided some of the devilish answer. In The Book of Co-Creation she writes: Out of the full spectrum of human personality, one-fourth is electing to transcend .... One-fourth is destructive [and] they are defective seeds. In the past they were permitted to die a 'natural death.' ... Now as we approach the quantum shift from the creature-human to the co-creative human -- the human who is an inheritor of god-like powers -- the destructive one-fourth must be eliminated from the social body .... Fortunately, you are not responsible for this act. We are. We are in charge of God's selection process for planet Earth. He selects, we destroy. We are the riders of the pale horse, Death.'" Lord help us all if this de facto Brain Trust' of diabolical misfits, murderers, megalomaniacs, terrorists, and tyrants succeed in establishing their new world order,' their new global civilization.'" That article by William F. Jasper was written over ten years ago. Can you feel the love?
In a LifeSiteNews.com article by Terry Vanderheyden on November 16, 2005, we see this striking comment: "Jacques Cousteau, the late, famed oceanographer and environmentalist, is said to have been quoted in a November 1991 UNESCO Courier stating, One American burdens the earth much more than twenty Bangladesh...This is a terrible thing to say. In order to stabilize world populations, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it's just as bad not to say it.'"
Let's say that the Pogrom Parties get power soon, and, for the sake of argument, let's say that there's a 25 year plan for eliminating 5 billion people from planet earth. That would equate to 200 million people per year or roughly 550,000 people per day. Cousteau's estimate was low, he should have added 200,000 per day more. To get an idea of what this would mean, that would be like eliminating roughly the population of Portland, Oregon every day for 25 years. With the advancements in science and technology, who knows what will happen. It could all be done within a year. Who knows? Your guess is as good as mine.
The primary objective of this chapter is to give the reader an understanding of what the future holds for a lot of people. The scroll that God gave Ezekiel to eat was sweet, like honey in the mouth, but it didn't set well on the stomach. The words of this book are not sweet, but bitter. They are not pleasant to eat or digest, but I have a duty to tell the truth, no matter how bitter it is. There's a strong presumption that the time has come for people that oppose this system of cannibalistic slavery to prepare themselves for their ultimate fate. I don't see how it can be avoided, since the majority of people support the system. But once the pogrom demon starts feeding, there can be little doubt that many of the "path of least resistence" people will be swallowed up too.
"Submissiveness to fate, the total abdication of your own will in the shaping of your life, the recognition that it was impossible to guess the best and worst ahead of time but that it was easy to take a step you would reproach yourself for - all this freed the prisoner from any bondage, made him calmer, and even ennobled him."16
Remember the over 600 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners that I mentioned in the previous chapter? Do you really think that they'll stay empty forever? What about prison camps in other countries? How many are there worldwide? After all, why build the cages if they expect to catch no birds? One facility in the Alaskan wilderness can hold up to 500,000 prisoners, and the only access to this facility is by train or air. There are no roads going to it. So, if you find yourself arrested and you eventually end up on a train or one of those big Air Force transport planes, what do you think is about to happen? After all, in the Alaskan wilderness you can scream all you want. No one who would sympathize with you could hear you, except, of course, all the other slaves that are going to be killed along with you. Once one batch is executed, then it's time to ship another one in - wave after wave after wave. Of course, they may use your labor for a little while before they kill you. With hundreds of prison camps to work with, you can get rid of a lot of people in a short period of time. There's another facility in Alaska near Fairbanks that can hold up to 2 million slaves.
"That was the initial purpose of imprisonment on the Solovetsky Islands (nicknamed Solovki): it was such a good place, cut off from communication with the outside world for half a year at a time. You couldn't be heard from there no matter how loud you shouted, and you could even burn yourself up for all anyone would know."17
To get an idea how all of this will be done we can look at how its been done before. Solzhenitsyn was a Captain in the Soviet Army when he was arrested. What got him arrested? "I knew instantly I had been arrested because of my correspondence with a school friend, and understood from what direction to expect danger."18 Just before the outbreak of war with Germany in 1941, Solzhenitsyn graduated from the Department of Physics and Mathematics at Rostov University. He was a very intelligent man and served in the Soviet Army until he was arrested in February of 1945. In fact, German shellfire was rattling the windows during his arrest. Millions and millions of people had already been arrested and sent off to prisons and the gulag before Solzhenitsyn became part of the waves himself. The ones who were obviously against the Soviet State had already been purged from society in previous waves, and now they were gathering up the ones who gave the impression of being against the Soviet State just from what was written in letters or what was overheard in ordinary conversation. It would be very easy today to gather lists of names of non-conformists by monitoring emails and looking at their web sites. Also, you'll be happy to know that Jay Leno, on the Tonight Show on January 5, 2007, said that President Bush thinks that the government has the right to open people's mail to help combat the war against terrorism. In describing the system of Napoleon, William Channing said:
"Another important and essential means of securing and building up his power, was the system of espionage, called the Police, which, under the Directory, had received a development worthy of those friends of freedom, but which was destined to be perfected by the wisdom of Napoleon. It would seem as if despotism, profiting by the experience of ages, has put forth her whole skill and resources in forming the French police, and had framed an engine, never to be surpassed, for stifling the faintest breathings of disaffection, and chaining every free thought. This system of espionage, (we are proud that we have no English word for the infernal machine,) had indeed been used under all tyrannies. But it wanted the craft of Fouché, and the energy of Bonaparte, to disclose all its powers. In the language of our author, it sprang through all the ramifications of society;' that is, every man, of the least importance in the community, had the eye of a spy upon him. He was watched at home as well as abroad, in the boudoir and the theatre, in the brothel and gaming-house; and these last-named haunts furnish not a few ministers of the Argus-eyed Police. There was an ear open through all France to catch the whispers of discontent; a power of evil, which aimed to rival, in omnipresence and invisibleness, the benignant agency of the Deity. Of all instruments of tyranny, this is the most detestable. It chills social intercourse; locks up the heart; infects and darkens men's minds with mutual jealousies and fears; and reduces to system a wary dissimulation, subversive of force and manliness of character."19 (My note: In today's high tech world, it would be easy to spy on people by putting spy chips in television sets, computers, and other electronic devices during the manufacturing process.)
The best time to arrest people is at night. Solzhenitsyn said that a night arrest is "a favorite, because it has important advantages..... The arrested person is torn from the warmth of his bed. He is in a daze, half-asleep, helpless, and his judgement is befogged. In a night arrest the State Security men have a superiority in numbers; there are many of them, armed, against one person who hasn't even finished buttoning his trousers. During the arrest and search it is highly improbable that a crowd of potential supporters will gather at the entrance. The unhurried, step- by-step visits, first to one apartment, then to another, tomorrow to a third and a fourth, provide an opportunity for the Security operations personnel to be deployed with the maximum efficiency and to imprison many more citizens of a given town than the police force itself numbers."20 Another problem that the Soviets had to solve was the loading of millions of prisoners onto trains after the mass arrests. Anyone with common sense knows that you don't do this sort of thing in broad daylight in front of a bunch of people. It doesn't look good and can cause problems with the people that still have a heart left.
"The preparation of the train has been completed - and ahead lies the complicated combat operation of loading the prisoners into the cars. At this point there are two important and obligatory objectives:
to conceal the loading of ordinary citizens
to terrorize the prisoners
To conceal the loading from the local population was necessary because approximately a thousand people were being loaded on the train simultaneously (at least 25 cars), and this wasn't your little group from a Stolypin that could be led right past the townspeople. Everyone knew, of course, that arrests were made every day and every hour, but no one was to be horrified by the sight of the large numbers of them together...... Therefore it was done only at night - and every night, and that is the way it went for several months."21
The fact that many of these prison camps are at or near Air Force bases reveals that trains will be replaced with planes as the primary mode of prisoner transfer when the waves begin. One of those Air Force transport planes can carry a lot of weight. If they can carry tanks then they can carry a lot of people. Imagine, if you will, being transported to a place where within two hours after arriving you were dead and being thrown into a mass grave or incinerator.
"The whole process, from the arrival of the train to the remains being hurled into the pit, took less than two hours. Most of the victims were never certain where they were or what was happening to them until the last moment. Every effort was made to try and deceive them about their fate. Treblinka station was decorated like a real station with a clock and timetables. The victims were told that they had arrived at a transit camp where they would have to take a shower."22
How many will be killed outright from the beginning and how many will be allowed the privilege of working for a time until they are killed remains to be seen, but, as I've already said, I submit that they will be counted in the billions. Whenever evil of this magnitude assumes power over the masses of humanity, it's by-products naturally follow.
"During the years when the prisoners' cases didn't carry any indication of their final destination, the transit prisons turned into slave markets. The most desired guests at the transit prisons were the buyers.... The buyers had to be sharp, have good eyes, and had to look carefully to see what they were taking so that last-leggers and invalids didn't get shoved off on them. The buyers who picked a transport on the basis of case files were poor buyers. The conscientious merchants demanded that the merchandise be displayed alive and bare-skinned for them to inspect. And that was just what they used to say - without smiling - merchandise. Well, what merchandise have you brought?' asked a buyer at the Butyrki station, observing and inspecting the female attributes of seventeen-year-old Ira Kalina..... Human nature, if it changes at all, changes not much faster than the geological face of the earth. And the very same sensations of curiosity, relish, and sizing up which slave traders felt at the slave-girl markets twenty-five centuries ago of course possessed the Gulag bigwigs in the Usman Prison in 1947, when they, a couple of dozen men in MDV uniform, sat at several desks covered with sheets (this was for their self-importance, since it would have seemed awkward otherwise), and all the women prisoners were made to undress in the box next door and to walk in front of them bare-footed and bare- skinned, turn around, stop, and answer questions. Drop your hands,' they ordered those who had adopted a defensive pose of classic sculpture. (After all, these officers were seriously selecting bedmates for themselves and their colleagues.)23
How do you mentally prepare yourself for imprisonment and death? You can pray, of course. But some other counsel from Solzhenitsyn might help too.
"From the moment you go to prison, you must put your cozy past firmly behind you. At the very threshold, you must say to yourself: My life is over, a little early to be sure, but there's nothing to be done about it. I shall never return to freedom. I am condemned to die - now or a little later. But later on, in truth, it will be even harder, and so the sooner the better. I no longer have any property whatsoever. For me those I loved have died, and for them I have died. From today on, my body is useless and alien to me. Only my spirit and conscience remain precious and important to me.'"24
Solzhenitsyn told about the people on the prison transport trains that wrote letters and dropped them through the cracks in the floor of the train cars they were in. Occasionally, someone would find one of these letters and forward it on to the relative it was addressed to. Better to just accept your fate and deal with it. The less you think about the people you once knew and loved the easier it will be for you to adjust to your condition as a prisoner. After all, you're probably going to be murdered sooner or later anyway.
"But it is better still to stop as soon as possible being a sucker - that ridiculous greenhorn, that prey, that victim. The chances are 95 out of 100 that your letter won't get there. But even if it does, it will bring no happiness to your home. And you wont be measuring your life and breath by hours and days once you have entered this epic country: arrivals and departures are measured by decades, by a quarter-century. You will never return to your former world. And the sooner you get used to being without your near and dear ones, and the sooner they get used to being without you, the better it will be. And the easier!"25
Back in Solzhenitsyn's day there was a big need for labor, and the gulag system provided this labor. Massive projects were undertaken that required enormous amounts of labor. For example, one massive project was the construction of the Belomorkanal. This was a canal that linked the White Sea and the Baltic. Tens of thousands of prisoners died during its construction in 1932-33. Then there was the large nickel production facility in Norilsk, north of the Arctic Circle. That construction project began in June, 1935. There was much more than this too. The waves that we have to look forward to today are not going to be primarily for labor, but just plain death - mass extermination.
Since it is unlikely that the course we are on will change, I submit that mass extermination is inevitable. It will happen sometime in the future, perhaps sooner than many people realize. One should never underestimate power that has no limitations.
"Power is a poison well known for thousands of years. If only no one were ever to acquire material power over others! But to a human being who has faith in some force that holds dominion over all of us, and who is therefore conscious of his own limitations, power is not necessarily fatal. For those, however, who are unaware of any higher sphere, it is a deadly poison. For them there is no antidote..... Physics is aware of phenomena which occur only at threshold magnitudes, which do not exist at all until a certain threshold encoded by and known to nature has been crossed. No matter how intense a yellow light you shine on a lithium sample, it will not emit electrons. But as soon as a weak bluish light begins to glow, it does emit them. (The threshold of the photoelectric effect has been crossed.) You can cool oxygen to 100 degrees below zero Centigrade and exert as much pressure as you want; it does no yield, but remains a gas. But as soon as minus 183 degrees is reached, it liquefies and begins to flow. Evidently evildoing also has a threshold magnitude. Yes, a human being hesitates and bobs back and forth between good and evil all his life. He slips, falls back, clambers up, repents, things begin to darken again. But just so long as the threshold of evildoing is not crossed, the possibility of returning remains, and he himself is still within the reach of our hope. But when, through the destiny of evil actions, the result either of their own extreme degree or of the absoluteness of his power, he suddenly crosses that threshold, he has left humanity behind, and without, perhaps, the possibility of return."26
When it comes to crossing the threshold of constitutional limitations on power, that threshold was crossed decades ago. Once limitations on power have been removed, it just stands to reason that those who have the power will take it to whatever limits they desire. Government can become a very evil thing. After all, "Pride grows in the human heart like lard on a pig."27 We should never forget that. Actually, George Washington, in his Farewell Address to Congress in 1796, gave some pretty good advice and some warnings too. You see, Washington declined to be a candidate for the presidency for a third term. He wanted to set a "no king" example, and until FDR, no president had ever sought a third term as president. So, since he had decided to retire from political life, he had no reason to bias his counsel in his speech. He said that his speech was "the disinterested warnings of a parting friend, who can possibly have no personal motive to bias his counsel."28 So, let's what our old friend George had to say.
"The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government. - But the constitution which at any time exists, until changed by an explicit act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all."29
I fail to see how sacred a fundamental law is when you just carve out exceptions to it and create legal fictions whenever you want to justify a law that obviously is in violation of it; and then you label the duty you have imposed upon people that is in violation of the fundamental law as something that is sacred you've imposed upon them. Makes sense to me. How about you?
"I have already intimated to you the dangers of parties in the state, with particular references to the founding of them on geographical discriminations. Let us now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally. This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its roots in the strongest passions of the human mind. - It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy. The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissension, which, in different ages and countries has perpetuated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. - But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result , gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and, sooner or later, the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty."30
When the people saw that their fundamental law was being violated back in the 1930's, they should have gotten rid of the quislings that had taken over control of the Democratic Party by not voting for Democratic candidates. But the spirit of party prevailed, didn't it? George was right; and now both major parties in the United States are labor cannibal parties.
"It is important likewise, that the habits and thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department, to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power and proneness to abuse it which predominate in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositories, and constituting each the guardian of the public weal against invasion of the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern: some of them in our own country, and under our own eyes. - To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them. If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the constitution designates. - But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil, any partial or transient benefit which the use can at any time yield."31
So much for what our old friend George Washington had to say back in 1796. Of course, we should remember that the labor cannibals think his opinions are old and outdated. After all, the people's popular god of the 1930's and 1940's and the father of American labor cannibalism, FDR, in a press conference he held on June 1, 1935, said that the Constitution was written back in the "horse-and-buggy days" when there was "no interstate commerce to speak of." This was the press conference FDR held shortly after the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the Congress didn't have the constitutional authority to surrender its legislative powers to the executive branch. Let's read some of what happened at this press conference.
"The style of criticism toward both the United States Supreme Court and the Constitution was set by the President. On the Friday following the Court's decision declaring the NRA to be unconstitutional, he assembled the newspaper correspondents at the White House and talked to them about it for an hour and a half. That clause in the Constitution granting to Congress the power to regulate commerce among the states - the so-called interstate commerce clause - had been written, he said, in the horse-and-buggy days, when there was no interstate commerce to speak of. That was the clause, very liberally construed by himself and his advisers, under which the government had been extending its power to act directly upon social and economic conditions, both to reform them and to promote economic recovery, as, for example, through the mechanisms of the NRA; and just when both he and his advisers were happily thinking they had found solutions for various national problems, then suddenly their solutions had been thrown back in their faces by the Supreme Court. Such a literal and narrow interpretation of the interstate- commerce clause as the Supreme Court had just made would mean that this was the only national government on earth without power to enact an administer laws in control of social and economic conditions. He deplored the decision. Its implications, if projected, would mean that the Federal Government was stripped of all authority to act in behalf of human welfare. And with what all the reporters present described as feeling, the President suggested that the Supreme Court not long before had construed the same clause broadly when in a certain case it was for the benefit of coal- mine owners, wanting an injunction against strikers, only then to narrow it again when the case the government needed the broad construction in order to improve the living and working conditions of miners. In the New York Times report of that extraordinary interview (June 1, 1935) this paragraph occurs: He compared it with the decision of 1857 in the Dred Scott case, an important factor in the events that precipitated the Civil War. Mr. Roosevelt did not make the latter reference, but later in the conference nodded when an interviewer cited the results of the older decision.' The use of these open reflections, the President said, was to clarify the public mind. What he wished people to see clearly was in what a disastrous way the New Deal had collided with the judicial power and that something would have to be done about it. He was not yet prepared to say what ought to be done. But at the Capitol, on the floor of the Senate and in the well of the House, voices were saying rashly what ought to be done about it. They were saying this dictatorial judicial power ought to be abated, and resolutions to accomplish its downfall were in writing, one to forbid the Supreme Court to declare an act of Congress unconstitutional, another to limit the tenure of judges, so that it should be a changing court, more responsive to the popular will, and so on. And arising at the same time was the absurd argument that the power to be abated, this dictatorial judicial power, telling Congress what it could and could not do, was a nonexistent power - the argument, namely, that for the Supreme Court to invalidate an act of Congress by declaring it unconstitutional is in itself an unconstitutional act, because there is nothing in the Constitution about it; that John Marshall, the great Chief Justice of the United States, invented the power and put it over on the country; that in England such a thing never happens, and there a judge was hanged for declaring an act of Parliament to be void."32
In reading the quotes from George Washington's Farewell Address and then comparing them with what FDR said in 1935 at his "Horse-and-Buggy Days" press conference, which president do you like better? It reminds me of a History Channel documentary on FDR, and what Harry Truman said about Franklin Roosevelt when asked by a journalist what he thought of him. Truman was vice-president when FDR died and therefore became president upon FDR's death. He was re-elected in 1948. The question the journalist asked was after Truman's presidency was over and he was retired from politics. When the journalist asked Truman what he thought about FDR, he paused for a moment, and then said: "Franklin Roosevelt was cold, very, very cold. He didn't care about you, he didn't care about me, or anyone else." Solzhenitsyn made a comment about FDR while having a conversation with a prisoner named Boris Gammerov. He said: "I recalled one of the prayers of the late President Roosevelt, which had been published in our newspapers, and I expressed what seemed to me a self-evident evaluation of it: Well, that's hypocrisy, of course.'"33
There are other things that Solzhenitsyn warned us to look for when the waves begin and then continue to splash and foam. If you get to see a judge a lot of them like to look you in the face when you are sentenced to see what your reaction is. You know, the look of fear or terror; and then maybe you'll beg for mercy. Better off to hide any fear and look like an emotionless zombie. "The judges would look the condemned man in the eye. It was interesting to see how he took it. What was he feeling at the moment?"34 Another thing is being compelled to strip naked. "After all, a naked person loses his self-assurance. He cannot straighten up proudly and speak as an equal to people who are still clothed."35 When you arrive in prison camp "everyone will try to deceive and plunder you. Trust no one but yourself. Look around quickly: someone may be sneaking up on you to bite you."36 If you are allowed to sleep, then sleep as much as possible. It's the best way to pass the time if you're a prisoner. Then there's the other extreme where they deprive you of sleep for days. That's a hard one to deal with. Then there's hunger. After all, if they're going to kill you then why waste food on you? Hopefully, if you end up being a victim of the upcoming Great Pogrom, they'll kill you quickly and not use you as a guinea pig first.
If the mass arrest method is the primary method that is used in the upcoming Great Pogrom, when the waves start people will continue going about their daily lives. Everything will be business as usual. The media and the press will keep the people entertained and make everything seem normal. It will all be well planned ahead of time. And one last word of advice for all those who will carry out the orders of the Pogrom Parties (that is, those of you who will exercise the police power) in executing the Great Pogrom. Do not complain or give the slightest bit of criticism while carrying out your duties. Solzhenitsyn witnessed many police and military officers get thrown in the waves for that. After all, he was one of them. So, my advice to you is to always speak highly of comrade Stalin and never stop applauding.
