10 Principles for Escaping the Matrix and Standing Up to Tyranny

By John W. Whitehead

Until they become conscious, they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled, they cannot become conscious.— George Orwell

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

It’s a shell game intended to keep us focused on and distracted by all of the politically expedient things that are being said—about militarized police, surveillance, and government corruption—while the government continues to frogmarch us down the road toward outright tyranny.

Unarmed citizens are still getting shot by militarized police trained to view them as the enemy and treated as if we have no rights. Despite President Obama’s warning that the nation needs to do some “soul searching” about issues such as race, poverty and the strained relationship between law enforcement and the minority communities they serve, police killings and racial tensions are at an all-time high. Just recently, in Texas, a white police officer was suspended after video footage showed him “manhandling, arresting and drawing his gun on a group of black children outside a pool party.”

Americans’ private communications and data are still being sucked up by government spy agencies. The USA Freedom Act was just a placebo pill intended to make us feel better without bringing about any real change. As Bill Blunden, a cybersecurity researcher and surveillance critic, points out, “The theater we’ve just witnessed allows decision makers to boast to their constituents about reforming mass surveillance while spies understand that what’s actually transpired is hardly major change.”

Taxpayer dollars are still being squandered on roads to nowhere, endless wars that do not make us safer, and bloated government agencies that should have been shut down long ago. A good example is the Transportation Security Administration, which, despite its $7 billion annual budget, has shown itself to be bumbling and ineffective.

And military drills are still being carried out on American soil under the pretext of training soldiers for urban warfare overseas. Southeastern Michigan, the site of one of the many military training drills taking place across the country this summer, has had Black Hawk helicopters buzzing its skies and soldiers dressed for combat doing night combat drills in abandoned buildings around the state.

In other words, freedom, or what’s left of it, is being threatened from every direction. The threats are of many kinds: political, cultural, educational, media, and psychological. However, as history shows us, freedom is not, on the whole, wrested from a citizenry. It is all too often given over voluntarily and for such a cheap price: safety, security, bread, and circuses.

This is part and parcel of the propaganda churned out by the government machine. That said, what we face today—mind manipulation and systemic violence—is not new. What is different are the techniques used and the large-scale control of mass humanity, coercive police tactics and pervasive surveillance. As we have seen with the erection of the electronic concentration camp, there is virtually no escaping the invisible prison surrounding us. Once upon a time, one could run and hide or duck into a cave, but that is no longer feasible as caves are quite scarce, and those running the camp have their eyes watching everything.

Moreover, we are presented with the illusion that we act of our own volition when most of the time we are being watched, prodded, and controlled. “The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative,” Aldous Huxley stated. “The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him, the walls of his prison are invisible.”

In fact, with the merger of the Internet and the corporate state, unless you are alert and aware, it will be increasingly difficult to discern the difference between freedom and enslavement. With the methods of mind manipulation available to the corporate state, the very nature of democratic government has been changed. Again, as Aldous Huxley writes:

[T]he quaint old forms—elections, parliaments, Supreme Courts and all the rest will remain. The underlying substance will be a new kind of nonviolent totalitarianism. All the traditional names, all the hallowed slogans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days. Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial . . . Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit.

To many, the situation seems hopeless. But is it?

From the day you’re born until the day you die, the choices you exercise are very limited. You don’t choose to be born or choose what sex you are or who your parents are or where you live. When you are a child, you are told what to do, and when you enter school, you sit plastered to a desk and are taught what others demand you should know. Yes, the indoctrinating process begins on day one.

Then there are the rules, the endless rules. If you say the wrong word, write the wrong story or wear the wrong clothes, you can get thrown out of school or even arrested. You live where you are told and eat what others think you should eat. As you grow older, this list expands into employment, marriage and so on. In other words, your so-called reality is socially constructed. It is predetermined for you, and if you step out of line and disagree with what the current society deems proper, you will be ostracized. If you speak your mind to the governing authorities, you might find yourself behind bars.

The point is that in order to develop a compliant citizenry, people must be forced to live in a mental matrix of words, ideas, ideologies, and teachings that are designed to make us conform. “As the Matrix in the movie was used to facilitate the exploitation of humans,” writes author Henry H. Lindner, “so the current ideological Matrix was created for, and serves to exploit us, turning us into unthinking workers and consumers—slaves of the ruling elite who themselves are trapped in the Matrix.” In fact, “few of us are able to escape the Matrix. We do not even know it exists.”

For there to be any hope of real change, you’ll have to change how you think about yourself, your fellow human beings, freedom, society, and the government. This means freeing your mind, realizing the truth, and unlearning all the myths you have been indoctrinated with since the day you were able to comprehend language.

The following principles, taken from my new book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, may help any budding freedom fighters in the struggle to liberate themselves and our society.

First, we must come to grips with the reality that the present system does not foster freedom. It denies freedom and must be altered. “Our authoritarian system is based on cruelty and control—it increasingly drives natural love and feelings from our society and produces violence and greed,” Lindner recognizes. “Our society is deteriorating morally and intellectually. This system cannot be reformed.”

To start with, we must recognize that the government’s primary purpose is maintaining power and control. It’s an oligarchy composed of corporate giants wedded to government officials who benefit from the relationship. In other words, it is motivated by greed and exists to perpetuate itself. As George Orwell writes:

We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship. . . .. The object of power is power.

Second, voting is practically worthless. “In principle, it is a great privilege,” Aldous Huxley recognized. “In practice, as recent history has repeatedly shown, the right to vote, by itself, is no guarantee of liberty.”

We live in a secretive surveillance state that has virtually no accountability, transparency, or checks and balances of any kind. As Jordan Michael Smith, writing for the Boston Globe, concludes about the American government:

There’s the one we elect, and then there’s the one behind it, steering huge swaths of policy almost unchecked. Elected officials end up serving as mere cover for the real decisions made by the bureaucracy.

How many times have the various politicians, when running for office, lied about all they were going to do to bring hope and change to America? Once they get elected, what do they do? They do whatever the corporate powers want. Yes, the old boss is the same as the new boss. The maxim: power follows money.

Moreover, voting is a way to keep the citizenry pacified. However, many Americans intuitively recognize that something is wrong with the way the electoral process works and have withdrawn from the process. That’s why the government places so much emphasis on the reassurance ritual of voting. It provides the illusion of participation.

Third, question everything. Don’t assume anything government does is for the good of the citizenry. Again, that is not the purpose of modern government. It exists to perpetuate a regime. Remember the words of James Madison, considered the father of the U.S. Constitution: “All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.” Power corrupts. And as the maxim goes, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Fourth, materialism is a death knell to freedom. While it may be true that Americans are better off than citizens of other nations—we have jobs, food, entertainment, shopping malls, etc.—these are the trappings meant to anesthetize and distract us.

Like the dodo, any “bird that has learned how to grub up a good living without being compelled to use its wings will soon renounce the privilege of flight and remain forever grounded,” Huxley warned. “Same thing is true of human beings. If bread is supplied regularly and capaciously three times a day, many of them will be perfectly content to live by bread alone—or at least by bread and circuses alone.” Free as a bird, some say, but only if you’re willing to free your mind and sacrifice all for a dangerous concept—freedom.

In other words, the hope is that the cry of “‘give me television and hamburgers, but don’t bother me with the responsibilities of liberty,’ may give place, under altered circumstances, to the cry of ‘give me liberty or give me death.’” This is indeed dangerous freedom.

Fifth, there is little hope for any true resistance if you are mindlessly connected to the electronic concentration camp. Remember, what you’re being electronically fed by those in power is meant to pacify, distract, and control you. You can avoid mind manipulations to a large degree by greatly limiting your reliance on electronic devices—cell phones, laptops, televisions, and so on.

Sixth, an armed revolt will not work. Although we may have returned to a 1776 situation where we need to take drastic actions to restore freedom, this is not colonial America with its muskets and people’s armies. Local police departments have enough militarized firepower to do away with even a large-scale armed revolt. Even attempting to repel a SWAT team raid on your home is futile. You’ll get blown away.

Seventh, be wise and realize that there is power in numbers. Networks, coalitions, and movements can accomplish much—especially if their objectives are focused and practical—and they are very much feared by government authorities. That’s why the government is armed to the teeth and prepared to put down even small nonviolent protests.

Eighth, act locally but think nationally. The greatest impact can be had at local governing bodies such as city councils. Join together with friends and neighbors and start a Civil Liberties Oversight Committee. Regularly attend council meetings and demand that government corruption be brought under control and that police activities be brought under the scrutiny of local governing bodies and, thus, the citizenry.

In Albuquerque, New Mexico, for example, police were involved in 39 shootings dating back to 2010. After a 2014 police shooting of an unarmed homeless man camped out in a public park, residents engaged in nonviolent acts of civil disobedience to disrupt the normal functioning of the city government and demand that the police department be brought under control. Community activists actually went so far as to storm a city council meeting and announce that they would be performing a citizens’ arrest of the police chief, charging him with “harboring fugitives from justice at the Albuquerque police department” and “crimes against humanity.”

In Davis County, California, in August 2014, after a public uproar over the growing militarization of local police, council members ordered the police to find a way of getting rid of the department’s newly acquired MRAP tank. One man at the council meeting was quoted as saying: “I would like to say I do not suggest you take this vehicle and send it out of Davis, I demand it.”

Ninth, local towns, cities and states can nullify or say “no” to federal laws that violate the rights and freedoms of the citizenry. In fact, several states have passed laws stating that they will not comply with the National Defense Authorization Act which allows for the military to indefinitely detain (imprison) American citizens. Again, when and if you see such federal laws passed, gather your coalition of citizens and demand that your local town council nullify such laws. If enough towns and cities across the country would speak truth to power in this way, we might see some positive movement from the federal governmental machine.

Tenth, understand what freedom is all about. “Who were the first persons to get the unusual idea that being free was not only a value to be cherished but the most important thing that someone can possess?” asks Professor Orlando Patterson. “The answer in a word: slaves.”

Freedom arose from the hearts and minds of those who realized that they were slaves. It became a primary passion of those who were victims of slavery.

Some Americans are beginning to realize that they are slaves and that if they don’t act soon, they will find themselves imprisoned in the electronic concentration camp indefinitely. Mind you, there may not be any chains hanging from the dungeon walls, but it is a prison nonetheless, and we are, without a doubt, inmates serving life sentences.

Mass Control 21st-Century-Technologies: Artificial Intelligence, Smart Dust/Nanobots, Mind Control EMFs/ELFs Being Deployed Against All Humanity

Ultimate End Game 101

Chem trails, which we are all familiar with by now–the white zigzag of chemicals being sprayed into our skies, literally all over the world, definitely visible for years now in America and Europe–may not be just about “Geo-engineering” and “Solar Radiation Management,” as some of us have believed or imagine.

chemtrailsMore and more, researchers inform us about AI — Artificial Intelligence — self-replicating, self-generating, self-assembling nanotechnology being included in aerosols, neurological assaults via these nanobits and nanobots, and their connection to Mind Control technologies involving EMFs, ELFs, radio surveillance and weaponry from satellites, and other technologies, including HAARP – the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program of multiple phased-array antennas, starting in Alaska, now installed all over the US and worldwide, sending massive amounts of radio energy into the ionosphere, and engaging in weather modification and directed-energy programs, including the manipulation of the aerosols in chem trails, and transmitting EMFs into neighborhoods. In other words, covert forms of Mass Control are being implemented via these technologies against all of us.

This information has been and is frequently dismissed as “conspiracy theory” by Disinformation “cyber-warriors” online; today, researchers on Chem Trails include scientists, meteorologists, biologists, doctors, and atmospheric physicists, all of whom continue to educate us on the content of these aerosols, and the dark implications of their long program and continuance in our skies.

(For detailed analyses of aerosol content, visit premier researcher and former Government scientist Clifford Carnicom’s website, http://carnicominstitute.org/)

HAARP

HAARP

Sofia Smallstorm, a researcher with a talent for explaining science with great lucidity, details here, in this talk titled The Dark Agendas of Synthetic Biology, with great precision, slides, photos, and informative analyses, what chem trails are, what they are doing, and the numerous dangerous aspects to their presence in our midst, including the implications of “synthetic biology” via biological material dropped down on us–what HAARP and chemtrails together are doing via Bioengineering to our plants and trees, our air, our soil, and our bodies–which are being hybridized and “transhumanized” by the nano-technology entering our bodies through these aerosols:

Deborah Tavares and Ron Angell discuss a variety of issues in this video by PureMomentum.net on Youtube, including Artificial Intelligence, nanobots in chem trails, and the influencing of minds and emotions (mind control) via EMFs being pumped into our neighborhoods.

Deborah Tavares is also profiled here. Visit Deborah Tavares‘ website Stop the Crime and her Youtube site Stop the Crime.Net New for more information on all her ongoing research and videos.

These issues are also touched on in this article at NeonNettle:

(The video linked there is also posted here, under Earth/Environment.)

Also consider this article, by Dr. Michael Salla of Exopolitics.org, discussing the dangers of Artificial Intelligence, as noted by various scientists, including those actively pushing AI, within a larger, esoteric context of human futures, secret space programs, and imagined extraterrestrial AI life:

Bio-Technology Hybrids open the Door to Extraterrestrial AI Robots Replacing Humanity

“Professor Martin Rees, the Royal Astronomer and former head of the Royal Society, made some startling statements about robotics and the search for extraterrestrial life. In comments published in yesterday’s Daily Telegraph, he claimed that it is far more likely that extraterrestrials will be discovered to be advanced robots rather than organic life forms. Rees believes this is due to the requirement for technological enhancements to organic life forms in order for interstellar space travel to occur. Rees’ claims are supported by Google Director for Engineering, Ray Kurzweil, who recently said that by 2030 most humans will have nanobots implanted in the brain to augment human intelligence in order to access the cloud internet and perform other complex tasks.”  Visit Exopolitics.org for the whole article.

Artificial Intelligence networks and robots, networked human brains via nanotechnology, Transhumanism, and Cyborg’ing humans are no longer speculative or imaginative constructs, they are actively being pursued in American, European, and Asian laboratories, research institutions, and universities; they are also being experimentally played out on the world’s populations, as Deborah Tavares, Ron Angell, and Sofia Smallstorm and other researchers note, without our consent.

The more we get up to speed on what exactly is going on in these areas, the more able we will be to determine for ourselves what we each think and feel regarding the ethicality, morality, and legitimacy of changing humans–meaning us, and our children, and our grandchildren–against our will, without consent, and become empowered to speak out from our individual perspectives.  There is a lot of information online on these subjects, more commentary and links on these subjects to be posted here soon.

Jim White: The Culling of Humanity

Re-blogged from Freedom Outpost: The Culling of Humanity by Jim White

Ultimate End Game 101

One of the leading, hardest working researchers in Alternative Media is Deborah Tavares. From her main website, Stop The Crime.Net, to her numerous companion websites, Deborah’s research and accompanying information is second to none.

Joining Deborah on The Liberty Brothers Radio Show was usual host, Jason Van Tatenhove, and guest-host Rich Scheben. Rich was invited to co-host in my absence, and he did a splendid job.

As usual, Deborah’s delivery and information makes you feel like you are taking a drink of water from a fire-hose. The depth and width of the knowledge that Deborah has committed to memory always amazes me, and what’s left out can be found on one of her outstanding websites.

In the 90 min interview that follows this article, Deborah covers a wide range of topics; many eligible for an entire broadcast of their own. However, Rich and Jason both did an excellent job getting clarification for some of the more complex issues Deborah covered.

Some of the topics in the interview include the idea of Primary Water, the fact that the Uniform Commercial Code has replaced the US Constitution, human tissue in our food supply in the form of Senomyx, the illusion of scarcity and the lies about oil being a fossil fuel, a lie perpetrated and propagated by the Rockefeller Family.

Jade Helm: The Reality, & Underneath the Reality

Control Structures in Place/Underneath the Reality of Jade Helm

Please take some time to listen to this inspiring radio talk on Weekend Vigilante/Waging War on Corruption hosted by Sheila Zilinsky, with Deborah Tavares (Episode June 12-Deborah Tavares), California activist and researcher extraordinaire who has been on the cutting-edge with her research and findings on all aspects of the control grid tightening its noose around us, including smart meters, restricted land use/water use, the use of electromagnetic/psychotronic weapons on unsuspecting citizens, gang-stalking/COINTELPRO, Agenda 21 moves to shortly confine Americans into a matrixed, highly-surveilled city-space in urban areas, robotizing humans, the use of nanotechnology, GMOs, aerosol assaults, vaccines putting biomedical devices into children, and more. 

She touches on a variety of subjects, starting with water issues in California, and moving on to “smart” implants already in our children’s bodies through vaccines, “Targeted Individuals,” and psychotronic weapons. These are the realities underneath the visible intimidation of Jade Helm. These covert control mechanisms and assaults — not touched on in mainstream media — are the ongoing and continuing controls we need to fight.

Visit http://stopthecrime.net and http://primarywater.org/ her two main websites for more information–she has a vast collection of information and documents at Stop the Crime.

Reality of Jade Helm

Visit Tat’s Revolution to read this article on Texas gearing up to defend itself from any untoward outcomes of the Jade Helm drills: Texas Mobilizes State Militias To Protect Against Occupying Federal Troops–and watch posted videos, one by Dahboo7 detailing the movement of military vehicles and heavy construction materials all across the West and Southwest.

This, in conjunction with Deborah Tavares‘ analysis, offers some insight into reasons behind these drills, which, as they roll out, compel one to face the reality of Jade Helm, the physical presence of army machinery and personnel in our midst.
