When in the 18th and 19th Century African slaves did not ’behave’, they were cruelly beaten sometimes to death as a deterrent for others. They were deprived of food for their families. Their women were raped. They were traded to even harsher white masters. Their lives were worth only what their labor could produce. They were treated as subjects, devoid of human warmth.
Today we have become all slaves; slaves to the powers of mafia bankster of finance; slaves to the western lie-propaganda; to the lobbies and their giant all dominating corporations – to the war-industry, because we happily believe what we are told about ever-increasing terrorism that needs to be fought with eternal wars; slaves to the environment-destructive hydrocarbon industry; to the pharma-industry; to the Monsanto-ized agroindustry; to senseless consumerism – and foremost – and summing it all up: to greed, endless greed that drives endless growth, nurturing endless competition fomenting adversity, destroying solidarity, instead of amical cooperation for a harmonious human cohabitation.
As people of western nations, we are enslaved to an all-engulfing neoliberal fascism – to a predatory economic. Corporate lie propaganda drip-feds our brains. We haven’t even noticed it. We are enslaved to so-called ‘leaders’, put in office by obscure foreign masters of deceit – the ever-stronger corporate controlled propaganda machine – the six all controlling Zion-Anglo media, whom we believe whatever lie they vomit – because it is more comfortable to believe a lie than to confront the truth – that’s self-imposed slavehood.
That’s how far we have gone. Because we are clearly on an almost irreversible downward track – sliding and running towards our own demise – into darkness – the darkness of chaos and bloody wars, endless wars against self-invented terrorism; wars that keeps our western economy running – and our armchair politics alive. Wars that kill and slaughter millions and millions – but all in ‘far-away’ lands. We are told we are protected. Our police and military watch over us. The new gods – money and military.
To prevent this endless terror chaos happening in our western spheres, once ‘proudly’ called Europe or United States of America, Canada, Australia, Japan – and whatever other country has surmised to the western slaughter machine – we call for police and military protection in our own lands, we give them power to enslave us further to the Dark State – those Zionist – Illuminati – Masonic – Satanic forces that slyly command a worldwide slave trade, called The Market – the all commandeering market. We adore The Market. We want to be integrated into it. The Market lets us live and strive and eat and dream of more. It feeds our greed as if there was no end. Slavehood to Nirvana or Neverland.
Although ‘pride’ was never an appropriate term to integrate our soul and minds, as we the western powers – have for centuries enslaved, raped, exploited and slaughtered the indigenous people, those who have for millennia, for history of mankind survived and passed on our human genes from one murderous civilization to another, always in the hope that the new one would see the light.
We can only hope that the patience of these native people, the survivors, our saviors – will prevail, that before we disappear in darkness, in the void of a manmade blackhole, we will awake, open our eyes and seek the light – become finally human, the term we have fraudulently applied to ourselves – the western civilization.
Beware – anybody who contradicts this truth and course of events, is labeled a conspiracy theorist, defamed and out-laughed, stigmatized. We have to de-metricize. Abandon our western established parameters, they are made to enslave us -so that an ever-smaller elite satanic class that produces and manages the Clintons, Trumps, Obamas, Bushes, Blairs, Merkels, Abes, Hollandes – and soon probably Macrons – and many more of the same kind – may continue their feast.
We are called to vote for these abject people, called politicians, most of them brain-and mindless, who have been preselected by the Masters who control the globe, in the believe we are actually choosing people who represent our society, defend our needs, freedom, justice and equality. Every four or five years we fall for the same rituals and believe things will change. We never dig deep down to find the reasons why all stays the same -and gets worse, despite our unhappiness and despite our ‘democratic’ votes. We are blind. Slavehood makes blind. We are more comfortable as blind slaves than as seeing humans. So, we keep falling for illusions.
Our lives are grey-white like a foggy sky, no sun. The sun and its enchanting wonderful brightness has been eviscerated from our enslaved minds. We are living in an oppressive depressive western civilization which we still call ‘democracy’ – because our twisted, manipulated comfort-loving minds do not want to admit – that we are enslaved. That democracy has been a pipedream of some Greek Philosophers 2500 years ago. Nothing more. We stole the term from history as a pretext to wage wars, rape, exploit and – to enslave.
Slavehood of 2017 – and maybe many more years to come – if we do not wake up soon – has gone global, very global. It’s the epitome of globalization. We are being uniformed into colorless cubicles. Culture is massacred, language is synthesized into Anglo-Saxon slogans – we are all supposed to think in globally recognized clichés; clichés repeated and perpetuated at nauseatum by Hollywood, the notorious mass-media; by the western education system, schools from primary to universities – private or state-run are indoctrinating our kids with neoliberal dogmas that keep enslaving them.
Independent thinking has become a crime, as it impedes the advancement of slavehood. Education is designed to kill individual thinking and the wide range of inventiveness – because it’s dangerous – for those who enslave and control us. ‘New-speak’ education has to make us thinking what the system wants us to think. That’s what western education has become in the last 50 years – a farce to keep us as non-thinking idiots.
Idiots are easily enslaved and exploited and sent to wars – to steal foreign resources to satisfy the greed of a few. We love to be cannon fodder, as we were told – enslaved – to believe that good patriots love to die for their country. We are blinded and avoid seeing that we are dying fighting to satisfy puppet leaders’ greed for power and money – whose power is nothing more than that allowed them by the Masters who control the world and who pull the strings on their marionettes.
Wakeup from slavehood 2017! – Make 2017 the last slave year!

The only problem I have with this article, is the over-liberal use of ‘we”. I do not consent to any of the atrocities perpetrated by the western rulers. I do not consent to GMO foods. I do not consent to any wars. I do not consent to their propaganda. I do not consent to what is done to our environment, etc, etc. They, the overloads, do want us to say “WE”, because then the responsibility and the consequences for all of the above will be 100% loaded onto our shoulders. This is why they want us to vote, because our vote is a form of consent.
Good article, but, real history, he is speaking to the slaves as though he was one of them.
He isn’t. He is part of a conscious minority.
They, the “we” that he is speaking to are the unconscious majority, whose ranks he wishes to thin, because their bovine subservience might eventually make slaves of us all.
The kind who are like one mindless individual who I once accosted in a public political discussion, and finally gave up on in disgust, saying “You just don’t get it, do you?”
His response, with an idiotic, farm animal grin on his face: “I don’t WANT to get it.”
I thought, and still think that that was one of the most pathetic, cowardly but honest things I had ever heard anyone say.
Anyone who is profiting from the Endless Wars and Sub-digation of the People of the USSA are the “we” that he refers to, and that includes the wage class workers who work for all of the industries that the author mentioned. If you are living better than others because your job pays you well even if you do sell pesticides, or bombs or over-the-top expensive pharmaceuticals or processed so-called foods or ammunition…… or jet fighter planes….. et al. You are all guilty of the crimes of your employers. Now THAT is the “we” he is talking about. The accomplices to the crimes.
Both Slaves and Criminals.
add mindless consumers to your list
That’s sort of the point of this diatribe, blaming the victim, because he or she might be less victimized.
Zionist guilt makes me puke. Stop being a ZIonist. Stop performing ritualized ZIonist self flagellation and stop identifying with the Zionist elite and it’s goals.
All we have to do is focus on about 1000 top crimminals — arrest, try, then execute them, after which we return everything they have stolen.
It would be easy if you would just stop being a ZIonist.
But you do use their paper money they print from thin air and they call it money and you do use bank cards that they can freeze it anytime you go against them or pu might save it in a bank it will loose the value as time goes on which you are losing but they won’t and you live in a country controlled by slave masters and you can’t criticize openly and list goes on . You think about that again :)
Do you not use paper money? Or have any plug into electronic money?
There is some poetry to the rant yet or much hint of solution. Just cynical woe upon cynical woe. Affirmative action is required. Leaders need to rise up and find their followers. Not on a website of wannabe moral crusaders or those basking in the virtual glow of the chosen ones, assuming much like the rancid left that their view is above and beyond all others….
Mass movement away from the system or mass movement against the system are the only two paths to Hope for a better world.
well i use their paper money like you do thats why im saying that we became slaves of the modern world which i really hate. we cant change the system untill big war accures then destroy everything and most of the humanity . only to free yourself from this slavery that we can just move to country side and make everything natural for our daily life and try to not to use whatever they cteated . isolate ourself from this modern slavery.
Too true as a man/woman we shouldn’t give consent to our Western Zionist controlled governments especially from the commonwealth nations with common law as a base,we can remove that consent and regain our true rights instead of the slave like privileges granted by the Talmudic law and monetary system that’s being imposed today in the west .We don’t want war we want peace and abundance and friendly trade with the rest of the world the elite obviously want to carry on with their gangster tactics of might is right.
National Socialism for all nations and all peoples is the only antidote to your problems.
In six years National Socialism turned an economic basket case Germany in to a leading world power.
It took the entire world organised by our economic slave masters five years to destroy it.
The entire corrupt usurious slave world of democracy and freedom to defeat one nation who had had the courage to throw the money lenders out of the temple.
It is National Socialism or usuary (cloaked as freedom). Your choice!
Actually leading German bankers and industrialists were early backers of German National Socialism, and profited greatly from it, at least for awhile. They didn’t throw the bankers and the industrialists out of the temple. They invited the bankers and industrialists in and made them high priests, then had them build the temple.
The slaves never ran the show under National Socialism. Instead it gave ultimate power to the bankers and industrialists and increased the slavery of the slaves. But, I guess the slaves did get to drive a VW and spend a week in the summer at a holiday camp. But the slaves never ran the show.
Take the case of Max Warburg, the brother of Paul and Felix Warburg (the German-American bankers founders of the Federal Reserve Bank who financed Lenin and Trotsky):
“From 1910 until 1938, he was director of M. M. Warburg & Co. in Hamburg, Germany. As head of that firm, he advised Kaiser Wilhelm II prior to World War I.
Beginning in 1933, Max Warburg served on the board of the Nazi Reichsbank, reporting directly to Hjalmar Schacht, before emigrating in 1938.
Before World War II, Max Warburg served on the board of directors of Interessen Gemeinschaft Farben or I.G. Farben, the giant German chemical firm that produced Zyklon B gas used in Nazi internment camps. His brother Paul Warburg served on the board of directors of I.G. Farben’s wholly owned American subsidiary, which was also associated with Standard Oil (however, Paul Warburg died in January 1932, before Hitler was elected Chancellor). I.G. Auschwitz, founded in Katowice (33 km northwest of Auschwitz town) had its own corporate slave camp called Buna/Monowitz, where prisoners from Auschwitz were put to work. The Kilgore Committee Report of 1942 claimed that all I.G. Farben board members had precise and prior knowledge that Zyklon B (an insecticide) was being used to murder civilians in concentration camps, with no attempt made to halt production of the insecticide after such murders were understood. I.G. Farben, financed through Wall Street, was instrumental in channeling funds for the rise to power of the Nazi Party (as was Prescott Bush). It was claimed I. G. Farben also built up the industrial and war-making capabilities of Germany once the Nazis were in power while simultaneously attempting to restrict industrial production materials to countries marked for invasion by Nazi Germany, all of this to such a degree that all German board members other than Max Warburg were charged after World War II as war criminals. The I.G. Farben factories were carefully avoided by Allied bombers indicating they were protected, as was Max Warburg” (Wikipedia).
You shouldn’t believe CIA-Wikipedia, “the greatest story never told” – another pack of CIA lies – and countless other neo-Ashke-Nazi disinfo about Roth-child’s Hitler Project. (more likely you only pretend, being a certain commenter).
James Corbett actually made a pretty good vid. about your Roth-child Führer, except he as most top Ashke-Nazis weren’t double-crossed – Hess might be an exception – but evacuated to South America, and so forth (e.g. http://hitlerinargentina.com/ ). They were simply total frauds (not unlike Satanist Trump).
James Corbett – “Hitler Was A Rothschilde” . . . https://youtu.be/z8ihB1wzJGM
Hess, of course, was Jewish. The Hitler Project was the Inbreds’ most prestigious enterprise since the French Revolutions, therefore non-Jews were not allowed in key positions, except as token ‘Aryans’ for the purpose of plausible deniability.
Piroutte, as he indicates by his name, is all about theatrics & spin. Yawn.
Hess of course was “not” Jewish. And was one of the most anti-Jewish members of the inner circle of the nazi party. One of the more ridiculous things I keep seeing lately is the dislike of Jews in so strong that some people even post the most ludicrous accusations that all the nazis were really “secret” Jews. Seriously,I can’t even comprehend how ridiculous those posts are.You have better luck in accusing a lot of Communists of having Jewish backgrounds.That is actually true.But nazis,really? I know the level of historical subject education in the World has fallen in the last decades.But really,has it fallen that far.
No. Uncle Bob 1, _smr is perfectly right. You know very well that ‘western historical subject education’ is ridiculously fraudulent, and has been so for a very long time.
Besides, it’s not fair to accuse all Jews, but rather the subjects (and profiters) of (Rothschild led) Pharisaic Talmudism, an old very organized and totalitarian, almost schizophrenic psychopathic, primitive backward, but very effective sect and cult. There’re plenty of Jews who are not.
He said that Hess was Jewish. History says he wasn’t. The plain fact is that some people like to accuse Jews of being behind every bad thing in the World. Simply because they hate Jews. The zionist movement is an abomination (in my opinion). But that isn’t a good excuse to blame all Jews for every wrong throughout history. All that does is take the spotlight of the crimes of the zionists. They hide behind claiming that hatred of them is only antisemitism.So the end result is to harm the cause of anti-zionism.I cringe when I see attacks on Jews for things that as a student of history I know they are innocent of.Blanket anti-Jewishness defeats the purpose of condemning zionism and their stooges.That is the same as today’s “Russia or Putin did it” propaganda in the West. And no more factual either.
Actually American Insustrialists recapitalized Germany
Harriman, Warburg, Ford, Rockefeller and more all pulled out of US market after roaring twenties, and invested (capitalized) the Hitler regime. The pulled capital from US and went to Germany. The Germans had the worlds greatest tool and die, once capitalized they grew fast.
There actually was a ten plus year lawsuit over this, the Wall Street 17, and some folks Prescott Bush (Brown Brothers Harriman) actually went to jail for trading with the enemy.
Bit of drama that speaks some of the truth…
There are no economic miracles…just some very very rich folks moving capital and assets around. This is really why they want the world. Bigger the playground bigger the profits
Maybe we can each look to control our own slaveiness. Three suggestions I learned from this blog:
– stop using credit
– grow your own vegetables
– work less
That third one is downright heretical, TSP! And I applaud your heresy. There’s a difference between working hard/responsibly and working a lot. Of course you’ve noticed the pride many people have when they announce how busy they are. Too busy for common courtesy. Too busy for quality entertainment. Too busy for creative silliness. I write songs. Many of the songs I write have an “edge” to them. But the one that seems to pack the strongest punch is the one I have that praises the lazy.
Too busy to think. I believe Orwell deals said that too, in ‘1984’. Everything is strictly regimented, right down to the hate sessions. No time to think.
Resistance is futile! You will be assimilated!
Oops! ‘Assimilate’ is now a politically incorrect word:
– stop using credit
– grow your own vegetables
– work less
– be a little crazy
– become sovereign
– think for yourself (you learn more from your mistakes more than from someone else’s wisdom)
– be creative on all levels, from the way you walk (gracefully) to the way you talk (poetry)
– don’t fight with the matrix – disengage.
– cultivate everything homemade, local, like-minded
– make your own music, paintings, recipes, rules, entertainment
or as Gautama Buddha said:
– be a light unto yourself
I sense a degree of anger and frustration ….. : )
‘ … are easily enslaved and exploited and sent to wars – to steal foreign resources to satisfy the greed of a few. We love to be cannon fodder, as we were told – enslaved – to believe that good patriots love to die for their country.’
I have a reasonable knowledge of history. There have been two main themes since we were amoeba ….. thugs and theologians. The great unwashed need someone, or some ‘organisation’ to lead them. They thought democracy was the answer, but the ‘masters’ soon mastered that, as we are now seeing, well, some of us are seeing.
Hermann Goering mused about this, he knew a thing or two about getting a nation of people to throw themselves into the slaughter and deceit of war.
So, yes, to add to your anger and frustration, in my opinion we are all too easily enslaved and exploited and sent to wars
There seems to be something in the human psyche that allows this, even demands it
That anger and frustration is indeed shared by me, I agree with your essay, we are being turned into slaves …. I can only hope that Brexit, Trump, hopefully Le Pen … are the first breaths of a slave uprising ….. I just doubt it, and even if the slaves do cut off the head of the hydra, we all know what comes next
“Of course the people don’t want war. But after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.”
— Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials
exactly so, Id like to send Peter and the Saker a copy of my new book “a New Way Now” which shows that we can afford a better future if we reregulate finance and relocalize our politics and our economies. website “newwaynow.com.au”, or through Amazon, or I can post you fine humans a few
Actually the “Market’ wants us to sell ourselves.
Woke up some 50 years ago. Joined some friends in what was then called a ‘counter-culture’.
To consider the power of propaganda, a quick test. What’s the first thought that comes into your mind when you hear the word “hippies”? I bet it wasn’t a positive thought. That’s the power of propaganda.
And ultimately, that’s what killed off the challenge of a “counter-culture.” It sure didn’t die because too many people brought too much peace and love to it.
I think drugs, brought into the mix by the CIA etc, played a HUGE role in destroying the hippie movement.
Any slave revolt has to be from the bottom up. It can’t be rich politicians posturing as “pro-slave”, because that will always be a con.
Any movement has to be a movement of the slaves, by the slaves and for the slaves. And it must produce its own leaders from the slaves. That’s how you’ll know its for real.
Reminds me of the most memorable movie review I ever read:
SPARTACUS: “Kirk Douglas pits the dimple in his chin against the entire Roman Empire!”
His defiant stance infects the others, who all declare “I am Spartacus” :
And obviously inspires the “Oh Captain, my Captain!” scene from Dead Poets Society decades later:
“What is Poetry?” Unlike the stupid essay by that title, ripped out of the text book in a revolt against slavery, it has to do with freedom.
Slaves being “prepped” for the Ivy League and the Deep State (LOL) do Spartacus.
The mind can be a prison or the greatest freedom. Even in physical prison.
On movies, and other “art” there are those that enslave and those that free slaves…….it is richly complex, not simple
Kirk Douglas, 100 years old is interviewed about Spartacus and the Lonely and the Brave and discusses the fear in Hollywood in the McCarthy era:
“Well, before I’ll be a slave,
I’ll be buried in my grave
And go home to my Lord
And be free…..”
Oh, Freedom! Harry Belafonte another black man (Paul Robeson, recently discussed) targetted by McCarthyism:
Here, with a lot of good historical photos:
“No more weepin’ over me…….”
Kirk Douglas, 100 years old
Evil lives long. He raped Natalie Wood when she was 17.
From the horses’ mouth directly:
“The American motion picture is the greatest unconscious carrier of propaganda in the world today. It is a great distributor for ideas and opinions.
The motion picture can standardise the ideas and habits of a nation. Because pictures are made to meet market demands, they reflect, emphasise and even exaggerate broad popular tendencies, rather than stimulate new ideas and opinions.”
Thus spoke Zarathurstra, erh, Edward Bernays, the nephew of Dr. Freud, in his book Propaganda, 1928.
Would you believe that he had the chutzpah to say:
“They [the Nazis] were using my books as the basis for a destructive campaign against the Jews of Germany. This shocked me, but I knew any human activity can be used for social purposes or misused for antisocial ones”. It shocked him!!!!
It would be worth reminding that for the Greek philosophers democracy was the most degenerate of the political regimes of a city manipulated by demagogues trained at the school of the sophistes. “Sophistry is a productive art, human, of the imitation kind, copy-making, of the appearance-making kind, uninformed and insincere in the form of contrary-speech-producing art”, of the “appearing and seeming but not really being”, Pseudos, Falsehood, Lie.
Let me add the textbook definition of democracy: Dictatorship of money. One who has the most money, he wins. We know who has the most money in this enslaved world of ours and why.
So, when people claim that there is no more democracy, they are dead wrong! In fact, this is exactly what democracy was supposed to evolve into: more control can result only in yet more control. And, when you hear them speaking about lack of democracy somewhere, don’t think they’re lying – they really mean it!
Thanks to the author for the good article as well.
“How many fingers, Winston?”
O’Brien to Winston, in ‘1984’.
”Is it four or five?”
It’s depressing , but it’s true.
I should have taken the blue pill…
We are screwed beyond fixing, only death now will cure us!
Spoken like a true slave.
The blue pill is the suicide choice. Sounds like you already did take it and are organizing other slaves to do the same.
Misery loves company.
Thanks for the hearty morning laugh!
I am free. I pay no tax, I work for no man, I think for myself, have no debt, own nothing, and I am no longer dependent upon the centralized system. I watch no TV, or play the stocks. I no longer interact with banks, I do not listen to radio, and I don’t have health care. I honor the place I live in, learn from others I respect, work in concert with Nature, live in harmony with the seasons, and I am completely responsible for my own well being.
Recently I wrote about Jobs in the Iron Age:
There lies within you the power you do not even realize you have. You are not powerless, in fact the opposite; you are extremely powerful. The first key to breaking free is recognizing the falsity of time as it has been presented to you. When you understand it is your job to stretch, move and breathe every day in a graceful way, without forcing, the motion itself unfolds the truth to your awareness and ‘time’ expands. Take one step further into prayer meditation, and the mind begins to still, contraction drops away. Fear moves into the distance, the breath guides the self; inward towards stillness. http://columbiabasinpermaculture.com/?p=7783
To all the writers at The Saker, thank you for all you do.
Jimmie Moglia the other day and now Peter Koenig have exposed in dramatic detail the sordid state of affairs and public life which will, inevitably, lead to the destruction of life on earth. By coincidence, my recent posts have addressed the same issues, namely our own individual responsibility in enabling and allowing the Masters of the Universe to drive humanity to its doom. Indeed, there is no difference between the slave, the serf and the wage earner; they are all being used as commodities to enrich the ruling elites. That is the logic and motive force of capitalism – to exploit resources (including human of course) for the accumulation of profit. And there is no alternative to solve the problems of the present human condition of slavery. Even a US Supreme Court judge saw it:
“We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.” Louis Brandeis
“We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.” Louis Brandeis
Democracy doesn’t work. It is designed not to work.That is why the oligarchs have chosen it over all other possible forms of mass control.
Combine democracy with undetectable debt slavery, organized religion, compulsory schooling, junk food and fake news, and paradise is unavoidable. The oligarch’s paradise, that is.

Typical Ex-Banker depression.
There is a german movie “Der Banker: Master of the Universe”. Probably you get it in english, watch it.
When every people bring a little peace of greedy behavior, it will materialize anywhere anyhow. All you can see of our greedy system is nothing else than the summary of every single peoples greedy behavios materialized.
So it makes no sense to judge someone, it just adds hate to the greed, nothing more, nothing less.
But mankind may need some milleniums more to understand the relations above.
Typical Ex-Banker depression.
Some bankers realize what they’ve done, others don’t. Mr. Koenig is part of the first group. Macron, Ackermann and many more are part of the latter group. They don’t show any remorse at all.
The EU was Technocracy’s mini NWO experiment and it failed. Neoclassical economics is being challenged by a growing number of outspoken heterodox economists like Steve Keen, Michael Hudson, Warren Mosler, L. Randall Wray, Stephanie Kelton, Bill Mitchell Joseph Stiglitz and others.
Revolt must begin in the classroom. In the US, economics students should all demand that pluralism (different economic models) be taught as well as economic history. (Can you imagine majoring in a subject and never learning its history!) The sooner we come together globally, end neoclassical economic thought and dispel all of the financial myths upon which neoliberalism has thrived for decades, the sooner we will see real change.
The Rise & Fall of Global Economic Governance
World Government Summit:
Slave is rooted in Slavic, the Slavic people of the East. Maybe the etymological experts will contribute more to this enigmatic word, to slavehood, to Slavichood ! There was a discussion some time ago here on ‘enthrallment’ which is to be enslaved, but has a different root.
Anyway,on the Slavs, and the Russian language :
In difficult days, when I reflect on the destinies of my native country — you alone are my support, you great, powerful, truthful and free Russian language! if you did not exist, how should one not despair in the face of what is happening at home? Such a language can only have been given to a great nation, a great people !
“When in the 18th and 19th Century African slaves did not ’behave’, they were cruelly beaten sometimes to death as a deterrent for others”
That is an incorrect and misleading statement. It should read as follows:
“When in the 18th and 19th Century slaves did not ’behave’, they were cruelly beaten sometimes to death as a deterrent for others”
or even better:
“When slaves do not behave, they are cruelly beaten sometimes to death as a deterrent to others.”
Because all of the first slaves in North America were white; and because in the 20th and 21st Centuries, the slavery that black Africans still practice on each other – like they have been doing from time immemorial – often results in beatings or death.
Anyone who makes it seems like whites are uniquely responsible for slavery, or that black Africans were unique victims of slavery, or that anyone other than white people have abolished slavery – is a fraud, a liar and an enemy of humanity promoting the myths that facilitate the ongoing genocide and ethnic cleansing of white people from their homelands around the world.
Please read moderation policy regarding ‘no use of caps’ have removed ‘caps’ this time… mod-hs
Truth sets the slave free. The recent DPRK threat against Chinese leadership show that DPRK recognizes that China leadership though officially servant of people and CCP is tool of DPRK enemies . That should be no surprise since Xi sent daughter to Harvard abandoning the traditions of Chinese cultures. The subjects of monarchy resented the wealth and power of king prior to 1600s. Monachy were replaced by election where puppets of Pharisees were put in control of finance politics media religion and the courts . Two thousand years ago Pontius Pilate was the officially the highest government official in Jerusalem but ultimately obeyed the Pharisees’r request to kill the Truth Jesus . Those leaders who were not under control of secret Pharisee oligarchy obey or are targeted for removal . The English common law pharisee controlled countries struggle against non common law. The entire fiat monetary system is based on deceit and false expectations. However the Pharisee systems is delusional and can not recognize its own doom . As Micah said about Pharisees in Micah 3;11-12 The heads thereof judge for reward [corrupt judiciary], and the priests thereof teach for hire [corrupt priesthood], and the prophets thereof divine for money[forecast based on corruption not truth]: yet will they lean upon the Lord, and say, Is not the Lord among us? none evil can come upon us.[Modern Pharisees also believe they will always rule]Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest. ” Note that DPRK KCNA recently cautioned Israel. In global nuclear war the center of Pharisee culture may well be destroyed. Be not dismayed. Before this world ends the Pharisee system shall be destroyed just as it was twice before. The judicial religious and political corruption will precipitate the fall of entire Pharisee system. The Pharisees and servants of Satan lose in the end. Those who lose life in service of Truth win. As Revelation states chapter 12 v 12 “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” The time of Pharisee rule is limited.
Thanks for speaking truth to power.
The truth will make us free.
Dear Peter Koenig, this is one of the most powerful article I ever read from you. Many thanks !
Please not again.
Peter, we know life is full of bs, stones and depression. Everybody knows it. What we need is solutions!
People are not born victims. People chose to be victims! As Bro 93 write, people WANT it. If people didnt want the slavery, it simply wouldnt be there.
Those who cries about their slavery, should be asked to leave the lies and to see the truth. Then the truth will set you free because the truth is divine and spiritual.
When you make truth your priority, no one and nothing can slave you.
Yes, unfortunately, and nothing new under the sun.
Black slaves, white slaves:
I have a similar analysis. I think only a shock therapy will be able to wake-up the slaves. Going to Armageddon is like commiting suicide, it is not a therapy.
With the French eIections, there was an opportunity with Marine Le Pen to get rid of the yoke of the International Finance. By renoncing our huge debt accumulated for having live beyond its means and sending all the usurers owning that debt to hell, could have been the trigger for the implosion of the finance system and the New World Order. This could be a shock therapy to wake-up people as the world economy could shrink by more than a large percentage, inducing people to change.
But I am afraid that we will miss that opportunity as people are too much afraid of assuming their liberty and have better acting like irresponsible children.
up to two third of young peoples in countries like Greece, Spain,Italy France are willing to join mass orotest movements, other countries at least a third…….

The power of the globalist oligarchy is rooted in the control of the international banking system. The ability to create unlimited money-as-credit is translated into physical power over nation states through sovereign debt and legal tender laws. This allows control over the broader financial complex such as Wall Street or the City of London and the multinational corporations. Governments become subverted through bribery at various levels.
Given all this, there are still methods to resist, as already pointed out by several posters on the thread. These methods must be through the economic and financial spheres. These are the mechanisms through which wealth is funneled upwards to the oligarchic classes.
The most crucial strategy is frugality and thrift. Pay off debts and do not incur more. It’s difficult to convey how liberating it is to be debt free. I, personally, have never borrowed money and probably never will.
Resistance to corporate power must counter the long term efforts to commodify humans as labor units. We are told that we must develop a marketable skill based on competitive advantage. We must then sell our labor in the market and purchase whatever we want and need from other market participants. Because of this, over time, workers have been “de-skilled”. When perhaps one hundred years ago most people could provide for their own basic needs, this is now rare. Even cooking from basic ingredients seems quaint. Obviously, the solution is to resist this trend. Learn to garden and cook. Learn to do simple repair work. Do things yourself instead of hiring someone. Try to cultivate local economic activity by buying local. Resist purchases from global market entities whenever possible.
This is what has worked for me. Ultimately these are solutions based on individual actions or small groups. What I don not think will work are what is usually suggested: looking for a politician or government to save us, buying gold, guns or crypto-currencies, armed revolutions or telling people to “wake up”.
Ok, but we also need to identify, specifically, “the preselected by the Masters who control the globe.”
If we’re going to make any progress, we need their names and the corporations they own, etc.
Freedom is a mental state not a physical one. You are as free as you think you are.
First off, thank you so much for your resilience. There have been days when I’ve woken up, stumbled to my computer spilling coffee the whole way, and expected your site to no longer exist. I know how difficult it is to maintain this website, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing so.
I do have one thing I’d like to say though. I’ll open with acknowledging how many different folks write articles for this website, and how much I appreciate translations from multi-lingual sources. That said, I read every article I share from your website in detail before sharing it with anyone. Some of your best articles have grammatically incorrect content, which makes it super difficult for me to share with people. While I understand that English is not the “Worlds Language”, English speaking readers are of the upmost importance when it comes to the information you so valiantly publish. If I share an article with my I’ll-informed friends, they will pick out grammatical errors and say things like “these people can’t even spell”, and so on and so forth. Just an observation. Thanks again for everything, and please don’t take this the wrong way. All the best!
