The famous Allegory of the Cave, originally scribed by Plato, tells the simplistic tale of how a group of prisoners live in a cave.
They are shackled and unable to move and their cave is lit by a fire behind them. The shadows on the walls is all they can perceive of their lot, and the shadows are how they interpret reality.
This allegory is rather pertinent at the moment as nervousness runs naked through the corridors of day-traders and bank employees across Europe, while fears bleeds survival thoughts in the minds of poor pedestrians from Spain, Greece, Ireland and Italy.
The truth is far different. There is enough food, water and housing on the planet to home 10 billion people.
But scarcity is the de rigueur meme of those with power. Scarcity is a psychological backstop - think Auschwitz survivors - that empowers the captors and dis-empowers the captives. Only a cataclysm could lighten the Euro-crisis dread, in the way a 5.3 earthquake arose the slumbering Melbournians in Australia last night and shook us from the idiot box for a brief few seconds of clear thought.
The only financial crisis that exists is
the one which exists within the mainframe of the wealthy, but what
we see is nothing more than debt theft.
Meanwhile, the media giants keep getting bigger and hungrier, gobbling up their opposition, while cutting back on staff and resources. In medical spheres, we call this neoplastic metastases, but in global economics it is just good business acumen.
The Internet herself appears to be in
threat of overloading with users and as a consequence
a form of
global control is being heralded in Europe as a way to manage
(regulate) user interfaces. It won't be surprising to see draconian
control of ISPs be passed into law when the Depression hits in
Syria finally falls into allied hands.
This is bound to annoy the USA no end as they will now have to attempt rendition extradition through normal legal channels or Flame the embassy's doors. Personally, knowledge of microwaved water may suffice.
Little do they know that the intent of Julian Assange is to eventually apply for an Australian visa from Ecuador with a hope of furthering his chances as a politician opponent against Julia Gillard.
I doubt the average Aussie would vote for such a maverick though, despite his credentials, as well as a unique capacity to reinvent global transparency. But the USA is already distracted by the CFR making the outlandish claim that perhaps a nuclear-armed Iran is not such a bad idea.
doubt such remarks are making the FBI ideologues nervous.
Although the treatise is lengthy, it is
well worth the read. Not only does it assist in learning more about
channeled and whistle-blower information and how to develop methods
of discerning truth from lies, it is also pertinent for those
interested in improving their critical thinking skills.
I remember the famous syllogism about Caesar when he was murdered:
Yet we ignore common logic when we observe things around us.
The vast majority ignore the truth of economic crime as a basis of global recession, deferring to the homonym that it is unexpected, unpredicted and therefore an accident, or 'a fluke'. One must be reminded that a fluke is a fish, not an accident.
Whenever something unexpected happens, it almost always smells fishy, suggesting someone or something is manipulating the action.
As Jung once said,
Never more pertinent than in this
of difficult learning.
