Prologue To Volume One
A Brief History of America That You Won’t Learn in a University
One of the more popular historical myths embedded in the American consciousness by the propaganda machine relates to the migration of settlers to the New World, the narrative detailing how hundreds of thousands of the virtuous oppressed flocked to the dockyards in a headlong rush for freedom and opportunity. There may indeed have been five or six such persons, but a much larger group was there to escape the hangman and jailer and an even larger selection were slave traders, hookers, and budding capitalist scam artists looking for greener pastures. When we add in the vast numbers hoping to escape justified persecution for their perverted witches-brew versions of Christianity, the first Americans were hardly role models for a new nation. The evidence is more clearly on the side of criminals, losers and misfits, religious whackos and opportunists than on the mythical oppressed. And, for the record, there is no evidence whatever of settlers emigrating to America in search of either “freedom” or “opportunity”, at least not within the current meaning of these words.
Good mental health was not a prerequisite for European settlers emigrating to the New World. We are fond of reminding ourselves that Australia was (and mostly still is) populated primarily with murderers, thieves and sexual perverts, but the immigrants to America were not noticeably better. Indeed, the inscription on the Statue of Liberty got the words more or less correct in referring to “the wretched refuse of your teeming shore”. While the Australians had their serial killers and muggers, the Europeans went one better with their Christian extremists who spent their weekdays burning witches and killing Indians, and their Sundays in church thanking God for the opportunity. The Australians have marginally improved their habits over the centuries while the Americans have not.
America is widely accepted, and indeed even prides itself, on being a deeply Christian country, with 65% or more of the population declaring religion important in their lives. This would be supported by history, since the major migrations to the New World consisted of a long list of flaky religious sects whose primary goal in emigration was the opportunity to build a society entirely based on those isolationist and extremist heresies. It is probably safe to say that Salem witchcraft was the seedbed in which the peculiarly American version of Christian theology sprouted and flourished, and which also served as a practical introduction to mass hysteria which would later be so usefully applied to the concepts of patriotism and democracy. The enduring echoes of this religious ancestry have been highly influential in all of subsequent American history.
The Preamble to the American Declaration of Independence (“The most famous words in the English language”, if you’re American; just another Hello Kitty greeting card, if you’re not), states: “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all White Men were created superior and are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, the most important of which is slavery”. In the recent history of the modern world, only two nations of people have so thoroughly embraced slavery as to have practiced it on an immense scale for hundreds of years: the Christians in America and the Dalai Lamas in Tibet. And only these two groups so cherished slavery in their hearts they fought a civil war over the right to maintain it. It is hardly a moral selling point that both sets of racist bigots lost the war and, while Mao cleaned up Tibet, the racism and bigotry persisted in America, often violently, for another 200 years and is still widely in evidence today. Christian virtue does not die easily.
Internationally, the American government and its leaders function with an absolute amorality, driven primarily by their commercial Darwinism, their law-of-the-jungle, might-makes-right philosophy. Yet individually most Americans accept all this as somehow being righteous and pleasing in the eyes of their god. The vast network of torture prisons, the numerous governments overthrown, the countless brutal dictatorships installed and supported, the commercial and military enslavement of so many populations, the 10 to 20 million civilians massacred, the constant meddling in the internal affairs of other nations, the so-frequent destabilisation of governments, the plundering of the resources of so many nations. All of these are excused, justified, forgiven, often praised, then quickly forgotten by these moral Christians. Americans may be comfortable with all this cognitive dissonance, but as Jiddu Krishnamurti aptly wrote, “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society”.
Hypocrisy has always been a prominent, if not quite endearing, feature of Americans, and especially of their government. It is Americans who preach democracy and freedom at home while installing brutal puppet dictators all over the world, who preach free trade at home while practicing savage mercantilistic protectionism abroad. It is Americans who espouse human rights at home while building the largest network of torture prisons in the history of the world. And of course, preaching that human life is precious at home while murdering millions in other nations in trumped-up wars of liberation. It is only Americans who moan about “the appalling loss of 5,000 American lives” in Iraq while killing one million Iraqis, half of whom were children. It is only the Americans who use the CIA, NED, USAID and the VOA to pay and prod individuals in other countries to create internal political dissent, then condemn a government for cracking down on “innocent dissidents”. Maybe one day Americans will lose their stomach for all this creation of worldwide instability and have another American revolution. And not before time.
Most Americans are only dimly aware of their own sordid past, a situation abetted by all the blank pages in the history books. The portions of US history contained in these pages have mostly been excised from the historical memory of Americans because they don’t fit the mythical narrative. Most Americans fervently believe their country was founded on God and Christian virtue, liberty, democracy, human rights and free trade, but when we dig beneath the propaganda and jingoism we discover the United States of America was founded on religious extremism, racism, slavery, genocide, a brutal imperialism and a virulently predatory strain of capitalism.
These volumes contain a capsule history of the United States of America with selections that will not be found in any history book, but that nevertheless consists of facts which are not in dispute. From here, we will look at some specifics, beginning with how America became rich. From this point forward, ideology and reality will be in constant conflict, presenting stark challenges to our uninformed beliefs.

Introduction to the Series
David Edwards was quoted in the Third World Traveler as having written:
“Even open-minded people will often find themselves unable to take seriously the likes of Noam Chomsky, Edward Herman, Howard Zinn and Susan George on first encountering their work; it just does not seem possible that we could be so mistaken in what we believe. The individual may assume that these writers must be somehow joking, wildly over-stating the case, paranoid, or have some sort of axe to grind. We may actually become angry with them for telling us these terrible things about our society and insist that this simply ‘can’t be true’. It takes real effort to keep reading, to resist the reassuring messages of the mass media and be prepared to consider the evidence again.”
This is the condition we face in dealing with America and Americans today: a blind faith and conviction based on a century of clever marketing and nationalistic propaganda that is almost inevitably contradicted by the facts. In truth, there is little about the US today that is not based on fabricated historical mythologies, buried history, biased presentations, facts twisted so badly as to be often unrecognisable. Probably 95% of what Americans ‘know’ about their nation, its history and its conduct in international affairs, is wrong, and often violently wrong. I am not so much concerned with what Americans believe about their own country, but it is a concern that this enormous compendium of historical fiction has been marketed to the rest of the world as truth, with peoples in many other nations believing the same fairytales as do the Americans and holding that nation in a level of regard that is to say the least undeserved, and often dangerous for the absence of truths.
These truths are the content of these books, the history of the US as it really was then and still is today, harsh provable truths and documented realities without the vast comforter of propaganda, jingoism, patriotism and misinformation that blankets the nation we know as the United States of America. Coincident with what is truly an almost incomprehensible volume of rose-tinted misinformation about the US is an equal volume of black-tinted information about the world outside the US. To the same extent that Americans have been subjected to a century or more of positive and unforgivably false propaganda about their own nation, they have also been subjected to enormously false negative propaganda and misinformation about the world outside their borders.
This series of books was to a large extent an accident of circumstance which began with my extended stay in China and the almost immediate realisation that the voluminous negative flood about China persistently emanating from the Western Zionist media was entirely false; demonisation and propaganda at their worst, giving Americans wholly unrealistic and often vicious misinterpretations and misunderstandings about the realities of China. After viewing a decade or more of this onslaught, and after writing many series of articles in attempts to correct some of the more egregious falsehoods, it seemed a book might be a more appropriate format. But then during ten years or more of historical research, it became apparent that Americans had been subjected to an even greater campaign of misinformation about their own nation than about China and other foreign countries.
I then seemed faced with a two-fold task: to correct – in the eyes of Americans, and perhaps Westerners generally – some of the more glaring misinformation about China, but then to correct – in the eyes of Americans – the even more glaring misinformation about their own country. To further complicate the issues, it gradually became clear that the world outside the US had been so contaminated by American historical mythology, jingoism and propaganda that foreigners were largely living in the same fairyland, insofar as the realities of America were concerned, as were the Americans themselves. To add to the confusion, it eventually emerged that the US-based power of the media, of advertising, of propaganda and misinformation, had contaminated not only the American view of other nations but the views of the peoples within those nations – to the point where Russians or Chinese or Vietnamese had been excessively exposed (thanks in no small part to malignancies like the VOA and Radio Free Europe) to both the glorified but false images of the US and the comparatively derogatory but false images of their own nations that had been so heavily propagated by the American government and the Zionist media to their own people. One book thus became five.
These books are intended to provide only a summary of the related topics. Full volumes can, and have been, written on many of the topics in these chapters. We have seen many books on the CIA involvement in narcotics or in Tibet, volumes on the discrepancies in the official 9-11 narrative or the Bush regime torture prisons, others on the various failings of US democracy or the American educational system. But these individual offerings, useful as they are, treat the segments as essentially disparate and unrelated issues where in reality most of them are integral parts of a deeply-connected whole. My purpose in these volumes is to present a unified picture to enable readers to see the entire landscape as a single canvas and appreciate the inter-relationships of the parts. It is this unified image that will provide a comprehensive understanding of world events and the forces driving them.
Preface To Volume One
Almost every individual or family has what we call ‘skeletons in the closet’, a collection of perhaps embarrassing or even shameful events, regrettable actions, unsavory family members, sins we committed that we would rather not confess in public, things we do not dwell on and would prefer to forget, recognition not only of our imperfections but reflecting the reality that we not so much make mistakes as sometimes act with less than honorable motives.
Included in this category are lies that we tell. Many of these are what we call ‘white lies’, usually small avoidances of truth often done for convenience or even a good cause. No doubt all of us lie on occasion, but there are precious few of us for whom lies constitute the foundation of our lives, where we are in a real sense “living a lie”. We occasionally encounter people who lie about their educational credentials or work history, sometimes greatly exaggerating their accomplishments, and in these instances the lies may serve as an important part of the foundation of a person’s life, perhaps obtaining a highly-paid position based on entirely false credentials, a life that would in part disintegrate if all the truths were known. We find this sometimes with con artists, whose very existence seems built on a vast and intricate weaving of lies, with lives that would indeed disintegrate if the truths were made public. These latter people are, in some real sense, “living a lie”.
Moving from individuals to nations, there are a few countries in the world that fit this latter category, one being the United States of America – a nation and a people that are in every sense living a lie, with virtually the entire foundation of beliefs, of actions, of history, of national pride, of citizenship, based on things that are not only not true but constitute an all-encompassing network of fabricated historical myths. This is not an idle claim, and is not an accusation that can be made against many other countries. I know of no place regarding the US where we can look and not find the landscape littered with falsehoods and supported by an enormous scaffolding of myths, half-truths, buried facts, boldly revised history, nationalistic propaganda and magnificent outright lies. It is true that most nations sugar-coat some parts of their history, but the US is almost unique in the world in being a nation that is genuinely built – and almost entirely built – on a foundation of lies.
With most other nations, if all their historical and political lies were fully exposed with all truths openly documented, they would still survive. But for Americans, the existential threat would be unbearable and I do not believe the US could survive as a nation if all its historical truths were unveiled and confirmed, in a manner by which Americans were compelled to confront them as fact, where denial was not an option.
As two minor examples, we have the now well-documented fact that the US government abandoned several thousand prisoners of war in Vietnam, men held back by the Vietnamese pending the American payment of the agreed war reparations of several billions of dollars. The US government had no intention of paying the money and so walked away from the table, leaving the men behind. Many veterans attempted to bring this to public attention, even testifying before Congress; many had unshakable proof of their claims, but the government – and the media – ignored them until recently when all the factual details emerged in second-tier internet news sites and could no longer be avoided. A much greater existential threat lies in the truth of Pearl Harbor, where it is no longer a secret, except to Americans, that Roosevelt knew not only of the impending Japanese attack (which he had carefully and deliberately provoked), but that he knew precisely the location and course of the Japanese fleet and the date and time of the attack. Roosevelt and his aides held back this information from their own high-level military at Pearl Harbor, sacrificing those lives for the greater objective of a “justified” entry into both theaters of the Second World War.
I believe there are almost no Americans with the emotional capacity to face this brutal truth, either philosophically or emotionally, and yet similar evidence virtually floods the available information sources. I would repeat here David Edwards’ words that “we will become angry with them for telling us these terrible things about our society and insist that this simply ‘can’t be true’.” Yet these things have always been true about the American government. It wasn’t so long ago that declassified documents revealed Operation Northwoods, where the CIA proposed to shoot down a planeload of American college students and a US space shuttle launch, using those as justification to invade Cuba and remove Castro. The US government has both proposed and executed dozens of these atrocities over the years, all hidden from the American mind and heart with the compliance of the media. Pearl Harbor was by no means the worst of these, but few Americans will be able to deal with these truths of their nation.
Many other events are perhaps less brutal but no less breathtaking in their dishonesty. All the tales of how the US became rich, the jingoistic mantras of ingenuity and innovation, of wealth resulting from freedom and democracy, hard work and fair play, are entirely false, and repugnantly so. America became rich through a program of organised violence encompassing hundreds of years, through centuries of unpaid slave labor, military invasions, and the bullying and plundering of weaker nations. The propaganda of the benefits of American-style capitalism follows this same pattern, but Americans are fed this pulp from birth and no longer have the intelligence to see the truth. The US government statistics on items like inflation, unemployment, GDP and more, are the most misleading and dishonest of all nations today. The propaganda machine tells us otherwise, but one need only look at the facts. The US has for the last century been the largest perpetrator of espionage in the world, this activity provably including commercial espionage on a grand scale for more than a century, but the propaganda machine lays this accusation on other nations while claiming a desire to collect only information on terrorists. An enormous lie of a magnitude almost too large to comprehend or refute.
Thomas Edison, revered in American history books as one of the most prolific inventors of all time, never invented anything. The stories about him are fabricated historical myths, as are the cherished legends of the Wright Brothers making the first powered flight or Alexander Graham Bell inventing the telephone. Coca-Cola was a world-famous Spanish product stolen and patented by US pharmacist John Pemberton, with the US government refusing to recognise the prior patents. Tales of American inventiveness and IP are almost 180 degrees from the truth, with solidly documented proof that the US stole more IP from more countries than did any other nation, by orders of magnitude, paying $20,000 to $50,000 to anyone who could accomplish such a theft, at a time when even $20,000 was a lifetime salary for an average person. This pattern is consistent in every area and every field of endeavor in American society. The entire history of the US, as described in the history books and repeated incessantly by everyone from Hollywood to various Presidents, is almost all false, and the parts not false are almost always misrepresented. The nation of America and all of its people, are truly living a lie.
The entire thread of “Democracy” and “democratic values” is one of the greatest serial lies ever told. American history books, and American minds, are filled with tales of the US “making the world safe for democracy” by battling tyranny everywhere and installing democratic governments, but this has never happened even one time. While the propaganda machine was flooding the imaginary world with tales of democracies, the US was flooding the real world with brutal military dictators that would permit US multinationals and banks to pillage their countries. All the theory of the US’ fabled democracy, the government by the people, the checks and balances, is false, with the truth in the open but Americans so indoctrinated nobody seems able to see. Furthermore, the US government has made it illegal to teach many of these truths in America’s public schools.
All the propaganda of moral superiority, of concern for human rights, are, as we will see, lies in their entirety. The US is not only not morally superior, but has the worst human rights record of all nations excepting one, in recent centuries. Americans have many tales – almost all false – of other nations committing wartime atrocities while their own government and military were committing far worse and heavily censoring the media to prevent that knowledge from escaping custody. Almost no Americans know of the vast massacres committed by their military in the Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Germany and Iraq. Human rights atrocities began from the first days of the white settlers landing in North America, and have never ceased. Ever since the US outsourced to other countries its human rights atrocities, it has boasted to the world of its moral righteousness in human rights leadership, but all was based on lies, deception and marketing. The world’s only “torture university” – the infamous School of the Americas, the decades of cruel and even savage atrocities inflicted on so many of the world’s nations, have been lost in the American propaganda of goodness.
The US heavily promotes its fictitious position as the world’s policeman, but it has never once acted in such a capacity. No nation has ever been protected or defended from anything by the US, but many dozens have instead been ravaged and destroyed by this same imaginary angel of mercy. Everything about the US protecting any part of the world, is an outright lie. American heads are filled with tales of American goodness rescuing these populations from tyranny, but the hundreds of US military interventions have been undertaken to beat down indigenous populations who were rebelling against American imperialism, poverty and death. The US Congressional Record lists these interventions as “protecting American interests” without providing details on precisely what interests were being protected, by what means this “protection” was being inflicted and, most importantly, why America had any “interests” in those nations in the first place.
The US government has not only lied about every war and foreign military intervention, but has most often created false-flag events to accompany the lies and create fictitious justifications for belligerent action. The American entry to World War One was promoted by perhaps the greatest woven tapestry of lies ever created, thanks to Lippman and Bernays, a project that involved literally millions of lies told over a period of years, sufficient to brainwash an entire population into hating an innocent country. The promotion of World War Two was not better in any respect. The Americans have done this since the destruction of the warship Maine in Cuba’s harbor more than a century ago, and have never ceased these enormous self-inflicted injuries. Lies used to justify more lies.
It is now well-known and not in dispute that US officials told more than 900 separate lies to justify the invasion and destruction of Iraq. The same is true with Libya, and with Syria today. The same is true of the destruction of Yugoslavia, another devastating military adventure based 100% on lies. All of the so-called “color revolutions” and other similar were not initiated to protect local populations from dictators but to punish unwilling nations for resisting the brutal American-style capitalism that was ravaging their shores. Ukraine, Russia, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Brazil, Venezuela, Nicaragua, and so many more nations have been under attack by the US government simply for resisting colonisation, but stillborn American minds believe they are God’s representatives pressuring “the bad guys”. Every part of American foreign policy and foreign involvement is covered with a carpet of lies, the media assisting in subversion and burying of the truths.
It would be useful to collect a catalogue of lies told by American presidents, Secretaries of State and other high officials, and publish these alongside the true facts. Consider this statement by George Bush made in 2003, just as his vast international kidnapping and torture regime was running at top speed: “The United States is committed to the world-wide elimination of torture and we are leading this fight by example. I call on all governments to join with the United States and the community of law-abiding nations in prohibiting, investigating, and prosecuting all acts of torture and in undertaking to prevent other cruel and unusual punishment. I call on all nations to speak out against torture in all its forms and to make ending torture an essential part of their diplomacy.” Name one president of any country that has told a greater lie than this one by George Bush.
The US government and its agencies boast to the world about their freedom of speech while condemning censorship in other nations, yet the US is probably the most heavily censored of all countries. The fact that the media are willing conspirators does not change the fact that all news and public content is heavily controlled and that 95% of what Americans “know” about their own nation and the world, is false. The US news media invariably present only one side of events that proselytise the current political agenda, leaving the American people hopelessly in the dark about the true facts. This is so true that one US columnist noted that only 4% of Americans have any awareness of the immense brutality perpetrated on the people of Palestine by the state of Israel for the past 70 years. American history books and other educational materials consist largely of historical myths, propaganda about the goodness of America, about the badness of other nations, lies about the foundation and entire history of America itself. Hollywood is one of the worst criminals in this regard, with virtually every movie containing historical content being little more than a twisted propaganda film, satisfying one ideology or another while totally misleading Americans on the truths of their own nation. Stephen Spielberg’s recent ‘Lincoln’ movie is one such example, but there are hundreds of others.
The US, the one nation in the world stridently claiming an absolute freedom from propaganda, brainwashing and censorship, is in fact and reality the nation most overwhelmed with precisely these attributes. We will see irrefutable evidence that American schoolchildren are exposed to extensive indoctrination virtually from birth in terms of politics, capitalism, consumerism, patriotism, moral superiority, American exceptionalism and so much more. We will see that this indoctrination and brainwashing are so extensive that the American view of itself and its place in the world bear almost no comparison to reality, to the extent that this vast gulf between beliefs and reality constitutes a national mental illness. Given the enormous cognitive dissonance in America today, one can conclude only that Americans are the most deluded people on earth.
And in the end, this is the reason the US Department of Homeland Security has built its 800 detention centers and purchased its three billion bullets, the same reason that many (Western) columnists are openly suggesting that the rampant abuse of power, the entrenched corruption and feeding from the public trough, the persistent plundering and terrorising of nations with civilian casualties in the millions, “has become so widespread, so deeply entrenched and so increasingly bold, that the only possible remedy is a revolution”. American and European columnists are becoming increasingly vocal in actually recommending another American revolution, convinced that only a popular uprising of the population acting in concert would have the power to reverse this tide. Until then, America, unlike almost every other nation in the world, will continue to be a nation built on lies.

“It our manifest destiny to overspread and to possess the whole of the continent which Providence has given us for the development of the great experiment of liberty and federated self-government entrusted to us.” – John L. O’Sullivan, 1845
US Manifest Destiny is based on the racist notion that certain Europeans were “chosen” by God to come to this continent, displace and murder the aboriginals, and steal their land and resources. If this sounds a lot like what the European Ashkenazim are now doing in Palestine, you are noticing something that any Native American or any Palestinian has known since forever. Manifest Destiny equals Zionism equals racism, pure and simple.
Well, this essay sure fulfills the words:
See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this. How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield my glory to another. (Isaiah 48:10–11)
This essay also fulfills the words of St. Paul when he said in Romans 2:24
For “the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you,” as it is written.
That this would become applicable to so many today is unfortunate but alas we were warned.
Further, have to ask and wonder how many of us would survive what Job went through and the shocking importance and ignorance of this book in the lives of so many today. Few I’d imagine could say with Job:
But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold. My feet have closely followed his steps; I have kept to his way without turning aside. I have not departed from the commands of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.
But he stands alone, and who can oppose him? He does whatever he pleases. He carries out his decree against me, and many such plans he still has in store. That is why I am terrified before him; when I think of all this, I fear him. God has made my heart faint; the Almighty has terrified me. (Job 23:10–16)
You know there is a very important reason as to why God never allowed His Temple to be rebuilt and that is because its where His name was and will be. It is why Solomon was allowed to build it not David. That then takes me back to that essay by Straight-Bat and the Conversos of Portugal.
To read about the development of slavery and the looting of the wealth of other nations/peoples only to end up in a city where great cathedrals were built just proves that God never changes! and so the words about judgment:
The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its people and their animals, even if these three men—Noah, Daniel and Job—were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord. (Ezekiel 14:12–14)
Did you ever read about those 148 tornadoes that slammed into America over a twenty-four-hour period on April 3–4, 1974? 1974 is not an insignificant date in relation to the Vietnam War. I’d say just another coincidence that really isn’t a coincidence at all! The bible does refer to these as His whirlwinds?!
We live in a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants, in a world that has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. We have solved the mystery of the atom and forgotten the lessons of the Sermon on the Mount. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about dying than we know about living.
—U.S. Army General Omar Bradley to the 1947 U.S. Army Graduating Class of West Point
Thanks again Romanoff. Always look forward to everything you write!
So here Larry is providing accumulated convincing detail as to why Islamic scholars will refer to America as “the great Satan.” Now we know that Satan is “the father of lies” so this fits. Does Satan not also work very hard, with as appealing a demeanor as possible, to convince us that he is actually God? The master lie! There is a good propaganda opportunity here for Uncle Sam. Maybe this angle is already being well worked. I have noticed how easily and frequently Americans casually lie to each other, often quite without need. One American joke goes that lying is the social contract. Politicians know they have to live by it. The pressure here is so enormous to the point where only strong souls can resist it. Then they are marginalized by the herd. If people here in America are so trapped and terrified inside a Satanic matrix that calls itself “America” then perhaps a little understanding and forgiveness can be offered for the strange postures they must adopt simply to survive. How does one possibly hope to survive going head to head with Satan?
They have a saying here; “the great American lie.” And we are left to decide exactly what that is. I read that “great American lie” as the posture that the American male ego drive is greater than God, and that egoism must have the final authority over what happens on earth. Ego control is everything here. Islamic scholars have recognized that the real problem is “the egoism of the West.” Satan feeds on ego.
However I would offer a subtle distinction: America is not actually the Great Satan. It is more that the Great Satan has, over time, established itself in America. Then one of its lies is to try and convince people that it is actually the real America. So the Satanic construct is then identified with America. Then Satan has the protection of people’s belief in America. When people cannot tell the difference between the authentic America and the Satanic imposter that sits in its place then the Satanic Death Star is secure. Would the father of fear and lies not seek this security? This is the key to an “American” education. So David Bowie has to sing “this is not America.”
Simply put; America was slowly and steadily deliberately reconquered by the very forces from which it originally sought liberation. The real America has been banished to the underground by the empire’s stealth re-invasion. Now post re-invasion the father of lies works overtime day and night to convince people that Satan is America. The egoism of patriarchal power that Larry details so well here does appear to be a very convincing argument for that equation.
However to speak of America and Satan in one breath is to employ a mytho/religious code that suggests unrecognized evolutionary forces may be at work. It goes without saying however that the lie machine will work overtime to make sure that these deeper countervailing energies cannot receive the light of day.
Snow Leopard, I would agree with you if there had been a fundamental shift in the American psyche, but through my study of U.S. history, I have found none. The expansionist and imperialistic thoughts and actions haven been there since the original 13 colonies with the Indian Wars and the Whiskey Rebellion. The opposing sectarian religious exceptualism mixed with ecumenism has always been there. Just examine the painting of Washington in the dome of the capital building or the pagan temples of Lincoln and Jefferson.
Proctor: Your response is very understandable and I am sure many would agree with it. At first sight it is obviously the case.
However, allow me to continue with my metaphor; History has given Satan a unique opportunity to wield an enormous and frightening new power in America. Satan draws power through “separation”. Progressively over time the Satan force has separated the American conscious mind from the life giving springs of the collective unconscious, to a uniquely extreme and dangerous degree. Europeans can often see this quite easily. For example America totally freaked out Sigmund Freud, but Carl Jung had a deeper and more accepting understanding.
Consequently The American mass mind has been a conflicted nightmare wherein the mental ego of the white patriarchal male, uniquely cut off from the life force of the unconscious, is driven by its inner pain to fully invest itself into an ego dominated conscious outlook. The result has been horrendous cultural distortion. Ken Wilber notes that the Declaration of Independence was also a declaration of the modern ego’s independence from any traditional fealty to god (the unconscious). Historians can read this as America suffering a psychological loss. For two hundred years the patriarchal outlook of the individualized ego marked the boundary of any understanding of the sacred virtue of liberty. So the Yankee boys developed a global reputation for being lost in egomania. (Faust on steroids). Notwithstanding many noble exceptions, this pattern has been the cultural dominant.
Because of this separation the God given manifest destiny of America could only be interpreted at the egoic level, and in so doing effectively turned (by Satan) into its opposite. Tommy Apeiron’s frequently spirited condemnations of manifest destiny is accurate as a valuation of the extreme of ego bound distortion of its true meaning. Compare the gulf of contradiction between Jesus and the Pharisees when talking about liberation.
All of this really means that Satan has succeeded in forcing the America that merits treasuring into the unconscious. So if David Bowie’s real America has been forced into the unconscious – then how easy is it for us to loose sight of it in any “intellectual” analysis. That is the heart of the Satanic plan all along. It has been institutionalized and it works so well. To varying degrees we all fall for it.
However Satan is never alone. Forced into the “unconscious” America has begun to consort with powerful new friends it finds there. Friends whom it has been seeking all along. It is from these unconscious well springs of history that we encounter repeated wave functions, all steadily building up to what you call “a fundamental shift in the American psyche.” The shift we seek is actually happening in repeating waves, all building and preparing the ground for the decisive shift which lies immediately in front of us. People can see the Death Star more easily now.
All I am really doing here, In speaking of the central role played by this dichotomy between ego and the unconscious in America, is offering a psychological interpretation of what Matthew Ehret is writing about in his new book “The Unfinished Symphony: The Clash of the Two Americas.”
This is a passionate indictment of the Evil Empire, and seemingly an accurate one. I can vouch for the truthfulness of the first few paragraphs describing the ruthlessness of the early Whiteman settlers in treatment of other ethnic people, since I have read much of how the early immigrants of Chinese ethnicity fared, as back breaking hard labors working in mines and on constructing the cross continental railways. These immigrants were referred to as ‘pig-lings’ sold for pittances in China and shipped to America in inhumane long haul boats. The accounts of how they were treated were written in both America and China. They were identical in one respect: that Whiteman treated Chinese like animals. If one searches the Chinese literature of the 19th-early 20th centuries on how Chinese immigrants fared in the New World, one would not find any heart-warming accounts or joyful memoirs. It’s uniformly bleak, sad, and lamenting. Even the lucky ones wo lived to return to China did not have nice things to say about where they returned from.
It wasn’t for nothing that white people were referred to as ‘foreign devils’ since those days. That label stuck until today, for legitimate reasons too.
Thank you Larry Romanoff for documenting an aspect of history that’s has been deliberately hidden from western populace. I await the publications of the remaining 5 parts.
By the way, there are nearly 200 countries in the world and the people of all these countries are naturally ‘foreigners’ to Chinese. But the label of ‘devil’ were/are applied to only two groups: Europeans and Japanese. I for one believe there is a sentimental reason behind this ‘compliment’.
I have been a regular reader of the saker blog for several years and this is the first time I have ever posted a comment.
I bring to the writer’s attention another famous quotation from Justice Holmes: “no generalization is worth a damn, not even this one.” I encourage the writer to keep it in mind as he continues writing his ebook.
Some specifics: within my own family I have five ancestors, three grandparents and two great grandparents, all of whom came to America to find a “better life.” All of them found it. None was a criminal or a whore – not here nor in the old country. My great grandfather, a successful manufacturer, went to his grave, at age 75, proud of the fact that he had never needed a lawyer because he was a man of his word.
I will read the writer’s future offerings not with a grain, but with a couple of pounds of salt. Dennis
My ancestors also came to the USA on the run from starvation and lack of opportunity in Sweden. But what they didn’t come here with was any sense of “chosenness”, like what so many other Europeans came here with starting about 500 years ago. US Manifest Destiny embodies that idea and was the justification for displacing Native Americans and stealing their land all over the continent. That evangelical Christianity in the USA has devolved into being a crude fundamentalism that not only justified slavery in a different century, but also what the European Ashkenazim are now doing in Palestine, is racism in its ugliest most perverse form.
Your point is an important one, Dennis. Romanoff’s piece blurs an important distinction that must be made between common, good-hearted people, and that class of people that generation after generation descends to the level of elite policy maker and the helpers in executing bloody-minded policies of murder, rape and looting as the legitimate tools of empire.
Having lived in the US for 60 years, I know and have known that a vast majority of our Nation would not willingly condone such behavior as outlined in the above pop-quiz. Until I found Howard Zinn and Chom I, for one, had no clue about the alternative perspectives on US history. For example, people of my parents’ generation actually believed that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were necessary and relatively humane alternatives to the full-on invasion of fanatical Japan. My parents had ever heard that Japan was trying to surrender at the time. If Japan seeking surrender had not been concealed by leadership, few would have supported those bombings.
Mass media deception is as old as the printing press. It should be common knowledge by now that the government does not reflect nor does it enact the will of the common people (See Gilles and Page of MIT). Doesn’t now and never has.
Dear Ed, and to Tommy Apeiron as well.
I keep thinking of Benjamin Franklin’s warnings, and the facts he learnt when he travelled to England and erred in telling them just how the Americans had become wealthy, and laws were made to ensure that never happened again.
What I am finding here is that the guilt of a few has been made the guilt of a nation, much like the tribe of Dan, which simply means that this tactic is older than the Bible, and it has often been used by the guilty to hide their sins, as this was obvious even in France after the Normandy invasion of 1944.
Why even Ann Frank’s father who was employed by the German army until he was caught cheating, and thus forced into hiding used the tactic, and of course his daughter’s diary, part of which was written with a ‘biro’ tells us that, as the ‘biro’ was not invented until around 1952. But to use this to blacken Jews, is also erroneous as it was another Jewish survivor that pointed out that fraud.
Excellent! Looking forward to the complete series becoming available. It’s tempting indeed to contemplate the proverb “The owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the coming of the dusk”, given that the sun is setting remorselessly on the US Empire.
What’s the most compelling evidence Jesus wasn’t born in the US?
Three wise men don’t exist there
But the three wise men came from the ‘East’ and later the invading Persians believed that those three men were actually Persian themselves.
@everybody and especially those who will be offended by what Romanoff wrote or dispute his facts and/or interpretations:
Let’s begin with the latter: his facts.
Frankly, not only have I known about 80% of them, but I would add that most educated people in Zone A also have known about it. I mean – this is not big news in, say, Asia or Latin America.
Let’s assume, for conversation’s sake, that he got some of them wrong. Say a whopping 50%.
That STILL leaves 50% true, “factual facts” – right?
And if that is true – then why being offended at anything but the propaganda he so well describes?!
My sincere thanks to Larry Romanoff for a superb piece of research and a MOST NEEDED one for any real discussions to take place.
It is not ‘the facts’ that are in dispute, as most of these facts are well known, but rather the the blame being placed on the head of all rather than the head of the perpetrators.
In regards to that attack on Pearl Harbour, consider this in regard to HMAS Sydney.
By June of 1939, Britain and Australia had “full control” of the Japanese naval cipher JN-25.
On the 19th of November 1941, the very same day that HMAS Sydney was sunk, Lt. Com. Nave RAN, decrypted a message in the Japanese consular code TSU, explaining that should hostilities be initiated, involving a “Japanese-American crisis,” a subsequent “execute” message would read “Higashi no kazeame” — “East wind rain”. The ‘execute’ message was intercepted at Park Orchards near Melbourne on Thursday, the 4th December 1941.
So just exactly what does all of this mean? Both Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt are trying desperately to get America into the Second World War. To do this, they both require Japan to attack America, and more specifically the American Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbour.
By the 19th of November 1941, Japan has initiated the final preparations for an attack on Pearl Harbour, and the Australian government and the ‘Admiralty’ are aware of this. However, if it was discovered that a Japanese submarine had been involved with the sinking of HMAS Sydney, then that would be an ‘Act of War’, and as such Australia and Britain would have to declare war on Japan prior to the Japanese attacking Pearl Harbour on the 7th of December 1941.
The Declaration of Independence might have been created to ensure that from that point forward, history would be recorded as it actually happened, and not from stories of the past.
Prologue To Volume One
A Brief History of America That You Won’t Learn in a University
The strangest statement in this article. Yes, your history was very brief. Your opinionated vitriol, however, was in depth.
And your comment had no factual or logical content whatsoever.
The “opinionated vitriol” is just your butthurt, that’s it.
You are hereby invited to write a rebuttal.
Prettiness is not good bait.
Please feel free to dispute anything Romanoff wrote!
Well let us start with the beginning.
One of the more popular historical myths embedded in the American consciousness by the propaganda machine relates to the migration of settlers to the New World, the narrative detailing how hundreds of thousands of the virtuous oppressed flocked to the dockyards in a headlong rush for freedom and opportunity. There may indeed have been five or six such persons, but a much larger group was there to escape the hangman and jailer and an even larger selection were slave traders, hookers, and budding capitalist scam artists looking for greener pastures..
Can Larry please name those five or six such persons. I think the narrative of this article would indicate the number was closer to zero.
Wait, that makes no sense to me. If you want to dispute his number, clearly meant metaphorically, it would be YOU who should give the evidence that there were many more such people.
If the article is wrong, and you correct, and that number was (closer to) zero (a negative which cannot be proven), then that only strengthens Romanoff’s argument, no?
Thank you, but first, I ask that when somebody posts a comment, it at least would come along with a commentary and maybe an analysis. The link, whose author I can’t find, indicates that a lot of Irish people fled to the USA because of the famine in Ireland.
How does that refute or support anything Larry wrote?
Even if we accept the veracity of what the (very official) LOC says, this in now way addresses what Larry wrote, it is a typical non-sequitur.
In fact, poor and desperate people often HAVE NO OTHER OPTION than to resort to crime or prostitution, or join the local mob, which many Irish had to do. That is also what the Scots did in Ireland, by the way.
Now I will readily agree that Larry’s writing style often resorts to rhetorical hyperbole, but your comments, so far, have not made even a dent into his argument.
If you want to really understand the Irish role in America, a good eye opening book is “How the Irish Became White” by Noel Ignatiev.
Now the people discussed in this article may have had at least on such person amoung them.
Well, of course they did, but do you the problem in which you try to refute his point? You take a particular and then expand it to the general.
And “at least one” or even “many thousands” would not really address his point.
Do you see that or not?
How about this group? Larry maybe right about this bunch.
To refute an argument, you cannot just use links as counter examples, unless the argument you are trying to refute specifically excludes even ONE SINGLE counter-example to the general rule.
So please instead of posting links, try to think logically about what Larry wrote and about what you have established (that Larry uses metaphorical hyperbole too often, which I would actually agree with). But his key thesis is in no way affected by such specific counter examples. Please think about this.
As you well know, I am not to bright and I am only following your previous instructions and using my search engines. What do you expect from those of us with such limited intellect?
okay, fair enough.
then I would ask you to only post comments which you are sure make logical sense.
Let us think about it from a different angle. In early days, when the British settled America. No, the word settle means there was some negotiations between two parties to agree on something. But, we all know for a fact that wasn’t the case. There were killings and genocide of the indigenous people of America at the time. That can’t be called settled or settlers. That is called occupiers by force against the will of rightful owners like Izrael doing to the Palestinians. We all know for a fact that in the early stages, the British empire sent the killers and criminals to get rid of and benefit from them, to do what they do best, killing. “Don’t let good opportunity go waste”. Now those killers, occupiers, thieves can’t be pilligrims who came to America to escape persecution to warship (war ship, ironic) God and spread the word of God in peace. Or, do you thing the God fearing pilligrims, when they reached America decided and said themselves, let us kill those subhumans and have this vast land and warship God and that will please him and we will live in peace and happily after. True religious people don’t kill other people. So, we must conclude killers and sociopaths who did the killing. Now, logically, as my professor used to say “it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand this and l’m one”. Now, how are the killers and religious peoples going to live together in peace? How are the religious persons going to live with killers they escaped away from in the first place. To come here and the killers not only there is no law, but encouraged to kill. So, I must conclude Mr. Romanoff was very generous when he said 5 or 6.
I’m not talking about America today, I’m talking about the establishment who controls America and the American people. Many Americans are good and hard working and naive like the natives of the rest of the world, but much worse. I met Americans who is ashamed of the government of what is doing in their name.
Go work hard and shop til you drop enjoy the American dream so you get poorer and make the rich richer.
That explains, very well, why the ms media do not bring up Tibet anymore.
I actually am ignorant about the history of Tibet in general and slavery there.
Can anybody please recommend a good article about this for me?
Thanks for your article(s) Mr Saker, I did conduct a bit of a search about it, but unfortunately and as usual, only Wiki talks about it in pseudo-neutral term while the rest of the search is anti-Chinese material.
This is a start:
Sorry, no particular piece comes to mind at the moment Andrei. However ever since the Communists became dominant in China the CIA has quietly intertwined itself with the Feudal religious hierarchy of Tibet. So the Reds now saw two “evils” in Tibet and sought to respond with their own form of “liberation.” And then the CIA counters by manipulating for its own agenda the entire narrative for the West. There is now documented sources about early CIA penetration of Tibet.
This much I have picked up over the years. So I speculate that China would have been more relaxed about Tibet if it wasn’t being used as a target against them. I believe China now claims that it is simply enforcing the borders of the original Chinese “empire.” I find it interesting that on one hand the CIA can be quietly tangled up with the Tibetan Pope and on the other hand Hollywood puts out propaganda saying “Free Tibet.”
as far as I understand the system in Tibet was a feudal theocracy, great if you were a Lama, not so great if you were a serf,
“Can anybody please recommend a good article about this for me?”
This is the Autobiography of the Dalai Lama, a short book. It only deals with the topic of slavery incidentally which is all the more valuable as it is not defending or condemning the practice. It also provides a glimpse into the social and political situation around the time of the Chinese takeover and exile of the Dalai Lama which is illuminating.
It will likely generate more questions than answers which is also useful for further study.
In the Kunming, Chengdu and Beijing archives (in that order of importance) there are tens of thousands of documents, monastery laws, emperor edicts, court records, bureaucrat reports, novels, traveller accounts, etc. All are in Chinese.
It is one thing to be ignorant and say, ‘I don’t know,’ but quite another thing to throw up endless lies and slander because of and taking advantage of that ignorance. Today it is Xinjiang and Hong Kong. Before it was Tiananmen. Before that, their anti-China campaign, that had focused on Tibet, the US-CIA/Indian/European had constructed a citadel, with the ignorance still buried inside.
For those Chinese who could read English, it was incredulous to read western materials not because those are anti-China propaganda but because the state of Tibetan society was completely flip upside down so tat black is white, Satan is God, good is evil. How to put this upside down more concretely?
Think James Hilton: “The Lost Horizon” then imagine the opposite.
Yet, we still see derivatives of Hilton and his Shangri-La fairy tales (Shangri_la, by the way, is the English translated name of a place in northern Yunnan not Tibet), in dozens of comments, even in Saker.
One reader blamed China for not being as proficient as Anglo-America in communication, even CGTN is not good enough for him, hence losing the ‘information war’, as if the world is a theatre of war, as if we Chinese must fight that war for his sake, and answer to him. And in the English to boot! We now say to people like that Saker reader, F**k off!
Another, in a Saker article, perhaps a Serbian, said Chinese governance and politics are not proven models to emulate, compared to American idealism in its beginnings. This suggests we Chinese hanker after European approval and we are badly hoping to export our form of politics and government. But not to worry Serbian: Go ahead, follow the Yanks. Don’t let us stop you, Bigot!
More to the point, it is no wonder you, Andrei, find nothing: The lies from the State Dept or the Norwegians in the Nobel Committee, have merged with the like of Hilton, transferred to the CIA, redistributed by the Anglo Press, and deified by Scandinavians. White people are the only truth. This is why, also, you know so little, why reader ANO1999 could only find Wiki and anti-Chinese material, and why Moon of Shanghai in its introduction on Tibet is so light and cursory in substantive information.
This brings us closer to an answer to your question: Where can you not find anything worthy to read on Tibet?
For that, you will have to be able to read Chinese. That is to say, your primary problem, really, isn’t one of availability or access; it is language.
For Chinese, as I, the best and most reliable sources were provided, even today, by court officials, bureaucrats, especially teachers, and some travelling tradesmen who we call salesmen today. Chinese novels are also excellent because they give details, down to describing hairpins and the ingredients in the dinner menu.
Understand that this group, especially government employees, whether 500 years ago or today, belongs to the literati class steeped in the Confucian tradition. Imagine their encounter with Tibet. So horrifying was what they experience, so oppressive was the situation in Tibet that they had to expel all of it from their consciousness by writing what they saw, read and heard. But none of these can go in the official reports sent to Beijing. Instead these had to be personal, and thanks to the Internet are slowly finding their way in the public domain (though those accounts are in Chinese).
For example, under Qing sovereignty (circa 1600) court officials in Tibet came across a thing called 《十三法典》、later 《十六法典》, in rough translation, respectively, 13 Codes of Law and 16 Codes of Law. Both sets of laws were probably new at the time because none of that had appeared in prior Ming dynasty records.
But, here’s where we owe Michael Hudson an immeasurable debt of gratitude because he provided not only the macroeconomic interpretation but a Mesopotamia, western and global context to the Tibetan operating system, but which is many times more cruel. A few key points about the 13/16 law codes:
1. Debt not capital is a family inheritance, hence transferable from father to sons, daughters, and onward down the generations. This explains why slavery was so mainstream and deep-rooted and was not a fringe occurrence. Slaves, often girls, were transferrable, and not only from one landlord to another but from one monastery which owed another monastery.
2. All land is owned by the monastery, hence all produce from the land accrued to them. This explains why the code laws were enacted because the head of monasteries were also the political elite and governing class.
3. There is no debt jubilee because the Dalai Lama is the forever ruler, generation following generation, each succeeding Lama appointed by the prevailing monastery clique. Unlike Mesopotamia they were no internal wars to replace one king for another, triggering the debt jubilee.
4. Without debt forgiveness, and a constantly impoverishing system of production, primarily agriculture, the point was reached sometime in the 1930s to 1950s, wherein there were more slaves than free people in a Tibetan population of about 1.5 million. A survey carried by Beijing in 1957 found that, outside Lhasa, the normal diet for 75percent of households was “weed boiled in bones of oxen” discarded by the land owners, i.e. monasteries.
5. What to do with those who still can’t pay, even after five sons and daughters? (PLA soldiers actually recovered accounting ledgers of these cases stored in the Potala palace.) For the answer, land owners look up details in the 13/16 Codes and consulted the Lamas. Depending on debt load, fingers are chopped, half an arm or a whole arm, or a leg. Debt still not settled? “Where is that pretty girl of yours?”
(Do you want me to go on, Andrei?)
China was actually glad the Dalai Lama fled and we did let him go in the middle of the night.
One, you can’t reform such a system. Two, the Dalai Lama had to go because as figurehead, he provided a Buddhist cover for the scale of evil, like democracy and the US constitution are today the covers for US war crimes, cruelties inflicted on the world. The problem isn’t with Press propaganda because those are just flunkies and hangers-on doing the Master’s bidding. (This is why China is not engaged in any ‘information war’ because war requires two sides. It’d be a waste of our time, and besides US propaganda is done primarily in the English, on their turf, not Chinese, so there is no way we can win.)
A very, very brief history follows: Until the 700s CE, Tang era, most contacts between Han and Tibetan were of private in nature, trade, families and the like, eg a Tang daughter of a high court official sent as bride gift demanded by the monastery ruling class.
The first record of any big scale and official contact was between the Tang emperor’s troops against an organized Tibetan force that came down in several waves onto Qinghai, Gansu, thence to Xinjiang and present-day Afghanistan and Tajikistan where they allied with some small time Arab warlords and local nobodies.
Fed up with the Tibetans for joining northern tribes in plundering villages, Tang era troops entered Tibet proper for the first time. But they did not declare sovereignty over it. The first Chinese sovereignty declaration did not come from Han but during the Mongol rule of China, later cemented institutionally in subsequent Ming and Qing dynasties. Although western propaganda called 1950 an invasion, and still does, the PLA entry into Tibet was merely an extant of sovereignty, brought forward from Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties, one central government replacing another, in like fashion to PLA troops entering HK on July 1, 1997, to take back authority from the Brits.
When people, in Saker included, look for information, their automatic bias is some western academic or journalist articles, presuming them to be impartial or accurate when they can’t even write their mother’s name in Chinese. Or Tibetan. But to those who are sincere, wanting to know more, below are two lists of readily accessible groups that are slowly, individually, releasing their accounts of the past over the Internet.
Below, I will only cite examples of those groups, thanks to the Internet wherein individual accounts are slowly being posted (perhaps by the children, perhaps kin or friends, anyone who knew how to operate a computer):

These below are translated English works found in the Beijing national library. I re-translated titles and authors back into the English from the Chinese, and so may not be faithful to the original:

Jian called, admonishing: “Stop!” She scolded: “They (Saker, the World) can say what they want. But why are you joining them to mind our business?”
I don’t know, I tell her. These White people…. It will be the last time, I promised her.
“Wait, just you wait…and I’d beat the daylights out of you!”
maybe Jian is right. why get beaten for the white ppl who has no ability to self-aware, definitely not self-correct. I am now seriously doubting that the silent sound of mushroom cloud is enough to open their eyes and wake them up. More likely they will reframe and make another hollywood movie for the local consumption/mind programing. but then the answer to jian’s question, “But why are you joining them to mind our business?” is simple. Because we want every chance for our children to hv peace in the world and not hv to go through war. isnt that is why XJP w russian and euarasia hasnt launch war back at USSA? but apparently that has changes just today/yesterday. PLA has now a statement/law on their website to approve of force unification of TW, read carefully for the white readers, means war on USSA proper, as you already know, rule based order will be abused by your congress and potus and will then kick in to effect the war drum and apparently over 80% of your USSA citizen approve USSA starting another war in TW, as if there is no cost in and to your homeland, even thuogh none of them know geography, hisotry and math. anyway I am half a toe nail from abandoning this place and all hope, should at least 100M flies drop like rain, then it is fated, it is definitely their choice, like the language issue you pointed out, they think white is the only color, so be it. earth is definitely more than one color and definitely more than 250yr+. be well be safe 云林 Yun Lin :) if you still want to and get to hang around, you can be the authorized chinese face around here… i hv been here for nearly 5 yrs now and i am too done for hoping…
p/s if you need to, you can use me as your crutch, I did request your company here. I am from the dragon family, you can tell Jian that.
pp/s dear amarynth dear take extra extra Extra care
Dear Yun Lin,
Thank you! I enjoyed that. If you’re ever in and around Geelong, would love to have a chat over a cuppa.
Lhasa, the Open City (1976) by Han Suyin
After briefly looking into Tibet, aside from the heavily politicized articles you mention below, I found a fascinating bit of history concerning Douglas Seymour Mackiernan, the first CIA agent to be terminated — some of the info has only come out relatively recently. Mackiernan was skulking around Xinjiang posing as a diplomat (vice-Consul) but actually talking to various militants and spying on the USSR’s atomic tests. He was shot dead by Tibetan guards, said to be in order to steal his gold, weapons etc. and they were subsequently sentenced to grotesque mutilation (nose, ears to be hacked off) commensurate with punishment for theft in those days.
Then another article in Wikipedia refers to the CIA trying to find a “third force” (after KMT soldiers had changed sides and their other hope- a KMT-affiliated Muslim Chinese fellow named Ma Bufang- fled to HK & Saudi Arabia) they spent $100,000,000 (1951 dollars!) on weapons but were unable to find any sufficiently motivated anti-Mao group to gift them to.
70 years later and some things have not changed much.
One of the more prolific bottom->up historians is Peter Linebaugh whose writings about the Commons and Enclosure and their relationship to the plantation of North America are absolute must reads. I highly suggest starting with The Many-Headed Hydra: Sailors, Slaves, Commoners, and the Hidden History of the Revolutionary Atlantic, which you can freely read if you’re an Archive member, which is also free. What you’ll learn from that book will help you understand that Mr. Romanoff isn’t too far from the mark. And it will lead you to many other places to learn more about what you weren’t supposed to learn. I disagree with Mr. Romanoff as the Antinomians were one of the primary forces of revolution within England, and you’ll learn the crazy fact that Baptists being Antinomians were in the vanguard–essentially the polar opposites of today’s Baptists within the Outlaw US Empire. Another fact you’ll learn is the basis for hatred of the masses by Royals and their Class allies, which is distilled in the person of Francis Bacon. Do be prepared to take notes as you read; my hard copy is very heavily annotated as are his other works in my collection.
Were the English any more ruthless than the Spanish, French, or Dutch? I would say yes. Knowing the genuine history of the planting of North America is central to understanding what happened later, including up until today. Most importantly, once you learn, pass on where you found that knowledge so others are informed. For if we’re going to overturn our current mess, we’ll all need to share the same overall understanding of how and why.
Outlaw Historian; I have been looking for this book. Thank you for promoting it. I have ordered a copy but that is going to take a while. I am interested in the pivotal role of Francis Bacon so I was interested in what you said of him. Can you say a little more about how you see Bacon fitting into this story?
Historically, Bacon’s portrayed as a learned philosopher, a leading thinker of his time and generally a good person. However, Bacon also promoted a Genocide not much different from Hitler’s in his An Advertisement Touching on Holy War. The discussion in the book absorbs most of its second chapter, “Hewers of Wood and Drawers of Water,” but also builds on what the first chapter portrays. Essentially, Bacon endorses the English Royal policy of Terror against the masses and also the Enclosure process that created those masses. And the Terror is very real and extremely important as it was responsible for attaining the raising of Capital that would finance discovery/plantation and the wars they would entail. Contemporarily, he’d be similar to Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, or John Bolton in his evil and any means goes to get his ends. That he himself was corrupt but never saw that failure of his person to be an impediment–why he wasn’t hanged or decapitated like his victims is curious. Bacon’s prevailing attitude is also a reflection of what his peers thought and acted upon, which is essential for understanding the great snap regicide provided within the context of England’s Civil War, which too many historians have framed as between Cavaliers and Round Heads, completely omitting the masses who were really the primary actors.
I never attended a school in England so I’m ignorant of how the English Civil War is taught there, but I do know what gets taught to students of US History, and not nearly enough is taught about the English Civil War for it had a massive influence on settlement and attitudes. Indeed, the term “Free Born Englishman” and the beginnings of British/English White Supremacy emerges from that war. Quakers are deemed Regicidalists and Baptists radicals–very few were allowed to vote in pre or post-revolution America. And since it’s an ally of The Terror, one can see why the Church of England is deemed an enemy of the masses–particularly in Ireland where it abets the genocide.
Because its importance isn’t taught, I didn’t appreciate Enclosure’s gravity in providing the wherewithal for nascent Capitalism. LInebaugh’s other works concentrate on that as well. As you’ll learn, the concept of Private Property wasn’t invented until Enclosure became Royal policy, although we’re taught that it’s been around for thousands of years. No! What’s been around that long and longer is Collectivism the common humanism reflected in Community, which is what made basic Christianity attractive.
And another very important subject almost omitted from study nowadays are the great number of religious wars fought well before Luther tacked his theses to the church’s door in 1518 and after. That’s usually where volume one of Western Civilization textbooks end and volume two begins–the semester never being long enough to cover all of volume one, with volume two having a similar problem with the 20-21st Centuries. Yet a great deal of important happenings occur during that time period, particularly the wars and (in the case of US History) how they affected England, France and the Hapsburg Empire–which at the time included Spain, Italy and the Low Countries.
After 50 years, I’m still learning what I wasn’t taught, but I don’t blame my teachers; they didn’t know either. In my training to become a history teacher, I discovered how poorly we’re taught. IMO, to properly teach history at any level the teacher needs the equivalent of a PhD, but they often just have a BA/BS, which means they remain ignorant.
“Were the English any more ruthless than the Spanish, French, or Dutch?”
Depends on your definition. The Spanish, French and Dutch carried out most of the ruthlessness by themselves while the British outsourced most of it by various means. For example the British had rewards for Indian scalps in North America. In India they declared around 160 ethnic groups to be “outlaws” meaning anyone could kill, rape enslave or whatever to them and they would not be punished for it. So, technically that does not come under British official ruthlessness as it was others who carried it out.
most people would be or ought to be familiar with the points mentioned. This maybe a little out of context (not really)

Excellent questions indeed.
I easily passed the quiz, almost all the answers supplied herein coincided with my own. Some answers are actually quite intriguing, and it would behove the author to provide references.
BTW, the answer given to “c” would explain much, but it appears not to mesh with what the Jews themselves are saying. For instance, the notorious “Wikipedia” is their fiefdom, and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Jews_in_Cuba asserts that, yes, most Jews left Cuba, but voluntarily. If Castro had actually expelled them, don’t you think they would be extremely vocal about it? A far more plausible explanation is: that they didn’t find the new ambient conducive to their thing – just as they did not find the old USSR “comfortable” and were leaving it in droves! While Fidel Castro himself made it clear that he condemned “anti-Semitism” (check, e.g., https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2010/09/castro-no-one-has-been-slandered-more-than-the-jews/62566/ , etc.).
The Jews DO NOT publicise their recent expulsions, only those in the past. The reason is that those long-past events have a buried history and can thus be blamed on unjustified anti-Semitism (whereas the expulsions were actually for their crimes, and unrelated except in the most general way to dislike of Jews).
But the expulsions of Jews has never actually stopped, because the crimes never stopped. Few people seem aware that the Jews were expelled from Cuba, but even fewer are aware they were expelled more recently from Japan, and even more recently from China. And of course Germany wanted the same thing – to expel all the Jews from Germany to Madagascar – Hitler’s “final solution”. Unfortunately for Germany, he failed.
The Japanese expelled all the Jews first from Nagasaki a bit before the Second World War, and from the entire country shortly thereafter. A Jew, Bernard Baruch who, by his own admission, was perhaps ‘the most powerful man in America’, chose the targets for the atomic bombs. It is likely much more than a coincidence that Japan was chosen as the target, and specifically Nagasaki. Just as Cuba will never be forgiven, so Japan today is a Jewish colony and will suffer forever.
With China, one of Mao’s first acts after cementing power was to expel all the Jews from China and confiscate all their “opium-derived” assets, including all the Mainland branches of the HSBC, virtually all of Shanghai, and much of the rest of the country. Jewish history books tell us the Jews “left China quickly” after the end of the war, without specifying exactly why they left or the conditions under which they did so. But China will never be forgiven either, which is why we have the non-stop hate campaign against China in the Jewish-owned media, and why the push to have the US begin World War Three with China.
You raised an interesting point, but there is more to this story.
“Just as Cuba will never be forgiven..”
I can’t say whether they will be forgiven or not, but I remember when they begged for forgiveness.
“El ex presidente cubano Fidel Castro cree que Israel tiene derecho a existir como Estado judío pero a la vez piensa que un eventual restablecimiento de relaciones diplomáticas entre los dos países “tardará algún tiempo”.”
“En el curso de la conversación, según una primera entrega de la conversación publicada en el sitio de la revista The Atlantic, Castro sorprendió a observadores manifiestando simpatía hacia el estado judío y el sufrimiento generacional de su pueblo. Al tiempo que exhortó a las autoridades de Irán a que dejaran de calumniar a los judíos y negar su pasado de sufrimiento, incluyendo el Holocausto.”
And they made sure to throw some shade on Iran in the process, just for good measure.
“China will never be forgiven either..”
In your estimation, Mr Romanoff, how much of the industry and finance sector in China is Jewish-owned?
China has massive investments in Israel and vice versa. The Chinese government owns a controlling stake in Tnuva, the largest food processor and dairy in Israel:
That’s just one example out of many. Chinese enterprises even go about covertly acquiring Israeli tech companies without explaining why they are doing so in secrecy, for example with StartCom:
What RAND has to say about Israeli investment in China (2020):
I mean, I could go on and on with more examples. China and Israel are too closely intertwined, and without the backing of Global Zionism, there is no way China could ever have become the world’s second largest economy, which many analysts are now saying has actually surpassed the U.S. to become the largest.
It is all a circus of lies and contradictions.
That is very interesting.
It may interest you to know that the Tatas- a large, powerful family which owns major industries. One of the largest, if not the largest, industrial/financial families in India- made their fortune during the Opium Wars against China. They are very much respected in India.
If your thesis is correct then India is firmly on the side of the Empire. But will it support the Empire? It has done so in the past (WW1 and WW2) but then you could argue they were not in control of their affairs then.
While we are correcting history narratives,
Please Mr Romanoff, start with this one:
The Slave industry of North America is overwhelmingly Jewish.
Jews owned the ships on which the Africans were transported.
They conducted the slave markets, and were overwhelmingly the owners of slaves.
Of course this is contrary to what is the prevailing narrative of US slavery…… but that’s kinda what you are capturing in your article, the many “truths” that just ain’t true.
Like everything, when the curtain of concealment is tug away, what’s revealed is quite astonishing.
Here’s some info on the slave owning, opium trading Sassoons.
The Sassoon jewish family controlled the opium monopoly in China
And The Radhanite (centuries ago) controlled the Silk Road and specialized in white woman slaves, young boys, eunuchs, drugs, and weapons. They were Jewish, based in Shanghai.
David Sassoon became an agent for the Rothschilds in Ottoman Empire.
In 1911, in an attempt to bring together British and German interests competing in the region, Sassoon formed a consortium of British investors composed of banks and companies and formed the African and Eastern Concession Ltd.
Sassoon’s eight sons also branched out in many directions. The Sassoon family was heavily involved in the shipping and opium production industry in China and India.
The Sassoon family was heavily involved in the shipping and opium production industry in China and India.
Elias David (1820?1880), his son by his first wife, had been the first of the sons to go to China, in 1844.
He later returned to Bombay, before leaving the firm to establish E.D. Sassoon & Co. in 1867, with offices in Bombay and Shanghai.
Another son, Albert Abdullah David Sassoon (1818?1896) took on the running of the firm on his father’s death, and notably constructed the Sassoon Docks, the first wet dock built in western India.
With two of his brothers he later became prominent in England, and the family were friends of the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII.
One daughter of the family, Rachel Sassoon Beer, joined her husband in running a number of British newspapers, including The Sunday Times (1893?1904) and The Observer, which she also edited.
Of those who settled in England, Sir Edward Albert Sassoon (1856?1912), the son of Albert, married Aline Caroline de Rothschild, and was a Conservative member of Parliament from 1899 until his death.
Everything you say is true, and your admonishment about my attribution to Christians is deserved. I chose those words because I didn’t want to start a war with readers so early in the article. It is a provable fact that the slave trade was almost entirely Jewish and had been for hundreds of years – one reason the Jews had been expelled from so many countries. And yes, the opium trade was nearly 100% Jewish, David Sassoon receiving the exclusive franchise for marketing opium in China from Queen Victoria herself.
It should be noted that Victoria (the entire British Royal Family for generations, in fact) was a full partner in the god-forsaken British East India Company and collected commissions and royalties throughout several hundred years of the most astonishing atrocities. Victoria was one of the most ruthless gangsters the world has seen. The British Royal Family today is not better, and the total assets of “The Firm” are rather higher than the stated public figures by probably two orders of magnitude, most of it from despicable criminal activity that would include the rape and looting of India, the destruction and looting of China, the Boer wars and very much more.
Again, not quite correct. The ‘British East India Company’ could only have started with William of Orange, who invaded England in 1688 with his 30,000 Danish mercenaries to remove James II and his lawful son James.
Prior to that event, the so-called ‘British’ had been the ‘Dutch East India Company’, but the title on the door changed once William moved house to London.
And of course the Boer Wars had nothing to do with the ‘British East Company, but rather the Bank of England. once the largest known deposit of gold was discovered in the ‘Orange Free State’. Well the Bank just couldn’t stand by and let somebody else benefit from all of that gold, could they?
I would add a note of caution to your posting. It is generally unwise to use articles as references if you are not well-acquainted with the history or at least the character of the author. I have for you below two references to Jeffrey Goldberg that might amend your thinking on his value as a reference.
I read the Goldberg article you listed and I find it impossible to believe many of the claims Goldberg makes. I am much more familiar with Castro than with Goldberg, and have grave doubts Castro said any of the things claimed by Goldberg. Given the control of the media, nobody would ever be aware if Castro took exception to those words, and the Atlantic would be unlikely to give him space for a rebuttal. But in any case, the entire article is just too cute and (for me) seriously lacks a ring of truth. I have seen too many of these, and I’m guessing it’s fake almost in entirety, a position supported by dozens of speeches made by Castro including those during the time the Atlantic article was published.
If you want to read something sick by Goldberg, read this:
More tear gas, please? – The Jerusalem Post – By Jeffrey Goldberg – 1991
THE RECOVERED HISTORY OF JEFFREY GOLDBERG, NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT FOR THE ATLANTIC
Fair enough. Could you direct me to a source on how Castro actually felt about Israel and Global Zionism?
I was in Cuba in 2014, and I didn’t see any “Death to Israel” slogans painted all over the place, like one sees in Iran.
Thank you Larry! All of that needed to be said and NOW is a very good time for knowing the truth and providing true exposure of the most vile place on our planet. Yes, the founding DNA of that place is pretty awful, with dregs of the old world “society” commiting numerous ghastly atrosities there – genocide of the indigenous population and slavery as only two examples, but in fairness, SOME did arrive to that place as genuine settlers, perhaps not right from the start, and had made their lives there, bringing up the next generations. And perhaps the critical mass of THAT type of population, with time, COULD have prevailed over the one with garbage DNA if not for the whole place being taken over by AZ Cabal. First Jewish settlers were rather few, mostly dirt poor and prosecuted ones, but soon it became a flood of them coming to these shores, especially after WWII. Before you knew it, everything WAS taken over by them, starting, as usual with them, money and banking. After that politial arena, entertaiment (Hollywood), media corporations, education etc. The takeover was complete. And because it was taken over by one of the most parasitic entity that ever existed, this is the result. People living in that country, in reality, really, never had a chance. Is it too late for them? We will soon see as what will happen in the next few months there as things are unfolding very fast in that place right now..
“… We will soon see as what will happen in the next few months there as things are unfolding very fast in that place right now.. …”
I hope I am wrong, but perhaps it is too optimistic to even wonder whether anything might change to the better.
Some statistics (from four years ago already): 40 of U.S. Senators and Congressmen are holders of dual citizenship with Israel, and many more such are embedded in the administration; while the rest of the Congress is held in full bondage to the tribe of ill repute. Not to mention what is happening on local levels these days, in judiciary, in universities, research institutions, in the entire corrupt health industry… Things are only getting worse.
In that I believe you are correct, why else would Tony Abbott be visiting Taiwan? Of course Senator Jim Moylan had previously warned that where could be a war with China within the next five years, and as a former ADF General, he would be aware of those things.
Imo, the author has given a brilliant example or account of the human condition. We live in a world of appearances, but deep within the individual a battle is occurring for domination of that individual consciousness. On one side, the mind is saying, “I can get away with this,”, on the other side the Soul, through the conscience, is saying, “I fear the consequences of what I am doing…”
In this journey, or unfolding saga within the Soul, there comes a point when Soul moves past the tipping point, and accepts that “of myself, I know nothing” and must submit to learning the ways of life anew. That new way of being is as simple as accepting that there is an overriding consciousness that oversees, ie; supports, maintains and sustains all life systems, everywhere from the smallest blade of grass to the movement of the heavenly bodies. Examination of this consciousness reveals that at bottom of this creative, sustaining and maintaining force or principle, is love. A love that we as human beings may not understand, yet love nonetheless. So all a human being has, at the end of the day, by way of truth, is his own understanding of what love is, and the choice as to whether or not to trust his instinct and live by this love, or not.
I believe the story of America is that of a people who were given an opportunity, but instead of living and upholding the stated ideals, have instead taken a short cut, being the way of power over others. We’ve all been “Americans”, etc. at one time or another in our long histories on planet Earth, ie; we’ve all been perpetrators of unspeakable crimes as well as victims, ( the journey of Soul continues throughout eternity and Soul moves from ignorance to realisation of Itself as a responsible spiritual being, not as a helpless human being ). If we take the above into account, we will see examples of great “sinners”, who moved dramatically from servants of the Negative Force to vehicles for Divine Love. St. Paul is one example, Milarepa, the Tibetan Saint, who began life as a black magician is another but who went on to serve as a great Buddhist “siddhi” or Master. And this too, is our destiny as individuals, to move from ignorance to consciousness.
The upshot to the great tragedy of human beings perpetrating unspeakable crimes over other fellow human beings, is that one day, each and every one of us – “the least of Thy servants” – will one day unfold in consciousness and become useful to the spiritual hierarchy. So, the world may be burning, while we are wondering whether we will “get our comeuppance or not”, but the choice of which road we will take is ever before each of us as individuals, every moment of every day of our existence. This is so, because the spiritual principle,
“Thy Will be Done”, cannot function or find expression, through the individual, if Soul is not true to itself, ie; lives according to what it knows to be true.
As long as Soul is living a lie it will be subject to “the arrows and slings of outrageous fortune”, but the key to Soul’s destiny, lies ultimately within Itself and the choices It makes today.
“… the spiritual principle “Thy Will, Be Done” cannot function or find expression through the individual consciousness, if Soul is not true to itself…”
To clarify… the principle “Thy Will Be Done” – or the Holy Spirit, the “Music of the Spheres” or whatever one wishes to call the Spirit of Life – is an impersonal force, and finds expression through every living creature to a greater or lesser degree, but working in conscious harmony with the principle “Thy Will Be Done”
puts the individual in the category of aiding and abetting God’s Will, or ‘fixing the problem’. Whereas those who are manipulating the laws of life for their own personal gain at the expense of others, are ‘contributors to the problem’…
This is the choice we face daily as individuals, ie; being either contributors to or fixers, of the problem.
Dimitar, ‘the Spirit of Life – is an impersonal force”. Dimitar, are you sure The Holy Spirit for Jesus was “an impersonal force”? For me and many, The Holy Spirit is a very personal force. Dimitar, I will prayer for you.
Stuart, our relationship with Divine Spirit is personal, absolutely, it cannot be otherwise, but It of Itself, is impersonal, or impartial, if you like.
“To clarify… the principle “Thy Will Be Done” – or the Holy Spirit, the “Music of the Spheres” or whatever one wishes to call the Spirit of Life – is an impersonal force”.
Dimitar, I very much appreciate your bringing all together into one meaning, “Thy Will Be Done” – or the Holy Spirit, the “Music of the Spheres” or whatever one wishes to call the Spirit of Life”, to which I add, one’s conscience too, and in so doing, bring your Holy Spirit to you, as a personal acquaintance, to dwell amidst you.
Contact with Spirit makes us view the happenings of this world in a more impersonal way. As the individual consciousness becomes spiritualised, we develop detachment from the things of this world; we may enjoy them as a blessing of life, but our ultimate aim must be detachment from all love of material things and events, from all concerns about them. We do this by centering our love above the perishable things of this world.
But detachment does not mean indifference or even identification with the things of this world, it means detachment in our innermost self in order to maintain our connection with Spirit. Say if everything were taken away from us, if we over-identified with our possessions, our station in life etc. even our loved ones, we would not survive in the event they were taken away from us. The saying, ‘his emotions got in the way’ are a direct expression of this.
Dimitar, you are a lovely personification of the expression: The Seeker (the saker).
Dimitar: Contact with Spirit makes us view the happenings of this world in a more impersonal way.
Stuart: Time to reverse course. A blade of grass becomes so personal, i stop, and bend down to notice. It speaks to me of wonders not spoken or heard. My teacher, a blade of grass (thc). I love my teacher. What is not personal?
Dimitar: As the individual consciousness becomes spiritualised, we develop detachment from the things of this world; we may enjoy them as a blessing of life, but our ultimate aim must be detachment from all love of material things and events, from all concerns about them.
Stuart: Don’t detach merge.
Dimitar: We do this by centering our love above the perishable things of this world.
Stuart: We don’t make distinctions on who should receive our love; Who is worthy of our love, for love flows through us, it is not us, and we are not it, we just flow to the maximum. Full Stop. I begin with an ‘a’ and not a ‘c’. it’s awareness over consciousness every time; in awareness, you seek totality and achieve at your ability to receive; in consciousness, you might emerge from the unconscious or the collective unconscious (dt), or the subconscious missing totally consciousness. The other reason why awareness is better, and more achievable than total recall (expanded consciousness) is that awareness self-fortifies, for it relies on ‘excitement – endorfins’, as in heightened alertness, awareness, and in contrast, consciousness is ‘fleeting – lacking sustained arousal, as awareness of isis is is fulfilling.
Dimitar: But detachment does not mean indifference or even identification with the things of this world, it means detachment in our innermost self in order to maintain our connection with Spirit. Say if everything were taken away from us, if we over-identified with our possessions, our station in life etc. even our loved ones, we would not survive in the event they were taken away from us. The saying, ‘his emotions got in the way’ are a direct expression of this.
Stuart: Think less, do more. Take a mud bath – lol. Dimitar, it is not important to worry so much. Be Happy. You’ll get through it. I’m with ya on your side, really i am. One last point. Two words: Soul and Spirit. The Soul never left the “Light of the Divine”…When mind split, The Spirit Left, The Soul remained behind in the Light of the Divine, and remains, unto eternity as only present as is is. I try not to conflate the two.
Dimitar on October 17, 2021 · at 5:31 am EST/EDT
Stuart, our relationship with Divine Spirit is personal, absolutely, it cannot be otherwise, but It of Itself, is impersonal, or impartial, if you like.
Stuart: You could not love this world, even if you wanted too; as in merge with the other as same, we’re distinct from matter and form, you and I, but best to ‘learn to appreciate the gross – and through utility, make it useful to your conscience’, which must be personal, yes?
Stuart, I’m not trying to disprove what you may believe. However, if you’re trying to ‘prove otherwise’, insofar as my comments are concerned, then if ‘God sees the sparrow fall, and yet, allows it to fall’ wouldn’t a personal God scoop down and save the poor creature, instead of ‘turning HIS face away’, as an impersonal God would?
If this line of questioning were to continue, we would arrive at the great conondrum, ‘why does God allow suffering, injustice and cruelty to exist in the world?’
Can you see where I’m going with this?
Spirit is an impersonal force, that is why It is misused by human beings. Human beings misuse It, b/c first of all, they have free will, and also, how will they ever learn that It is not meant to be misused if they do not use It for personal gain, and then one day realise that their efforts at enriching themselves at the expense of others, result in the aforementioned suffering, injustice and chaos?
Experience teaches Soul that there are consequences insofar as the decisons it makes are concerned. It also teaches us over time, the true nature of God’s love, and it is this love that transforms Soul from a self-serving being, to one that becomes a responsible part of the spiritual hierarchy.
Best, D. and I hope this is clearer.
Dimitar, your words are kind, thank you.
Okay, “Why does God allow suffering, injustice and cruelty to exist in the world?”
First, we must settle on the correct outcomes, those terms we use, or those phrases that guide us, as in, “Let your conscience be your guide”, or more literally, “Let The Holy Spirit Be Your Guide (And Not – Let the Soul Be Your Guide), for our soul is pure pure fine, nada problems with the soul, it’s that,”Ever Wandering Spirit (that left the light of the divine to encounter what is counter to our spark of the divine dwelling within, but not within in the body, but without the body. Actually, our Spirit lies beyond “The Wall of Fear”, and is not temporal with the body, there is a delay in time, where eternity rests a bit before becoming what is coming and now has come.
God does not allow suffering, he permits all outcomes. The difference is this, “your suffering and the bird exists as we do, as an idea”, the moment you formalize your feelings as in: “This bird-form is real”, your consciousness chooses not God, but an illusion as more real than what is real, eternal life, the idea, the logos – and if I ever hear in relation to God, that logos means word, and not idea, I will internally condemn them to hell, for god does not speak, and thus God has nothing to say in words. God is all about feelings. How does this make you feel?
The word, “allow”, as in God allows suffering, is problematic, for myself, i would say, “Why does God permit suffering”. In reality you’re placing suffering where it doesn’t belong. How do you know what the sparrow is feeling? You only now your own feelings, and displacement is not a cure, it’s a detour. I say this: At the moment of completing a mountain descent on a mountain bike that had been lifted up to the summit with me, i turned left onto pavement mixed with mountain grit. It was the resort parking lot. I fell badly and immediately went into shock, the whole nine-yards, obe (out-of-body bliss). I was able to walk to the lobby and collapse. As I lay down with head up, the humans around me, about twenty looking down were horrified, because I was dying, I was turning white from shock. Since, I couldn’t see ‘my face’ and since my feelings were euphoric, this is how I imagine your sparrow eaten by an eagle, bliss and euphoria. You saw your own projected fears on the sparrow. Where is God when he is needed?” – He couldn’t come, but don’t worry, he knows something is missing within, so he’s left behind your god-inspired companion, Mr.Mrs.He/She and Other, your best friend, your very own conscience, which also means, con as in “with” and “science” as in itself, so your conscience can be reduced further, to your personal version of the facts, your Science, which we each have according to our abilities, aim, and desire….wouldn’t a personal God scoop down and save the poor creature, instead of ‘turning HIS face away’, as an impersonal God would?”
Yes, and an impersonal God doesn’t exist. It happened Dimitar, the sparrow was saved, trust me, you just slept through it.
Ok, Stuart, see it your way. I will overlook the fact that I think you’ve crossed a line telling me “I slept through it”,
b/c the fact remains that you only see through the prsim of your own experience, as such, ans so, don’t really have a clue as to what I am saying. And no, I will not say I am right and you, wrong, as you appear to be saying.
what’s right for you
is wrong for me,
what’s right for me,
is wrong for you
We part friends,
Dimitar, been thinking all day: Why do i I feel so backasswards not being able to explain myself : “The Immaterial Forces” that govern our world, are Gods in a pagan sense only, so yes. Every spoon is God. You’d never get through a meal though and it’s okay to be hungry and not have to bless God every bite. So, here’s the confusion: your observing events without “proper” causes and this causes in you a decision: God or impersonal; but there are no impersonal Gods, ergo, you must be conflating two distinct terms, that of a force, as in the electromagnetic force or the gravitational force that got the sparrow eaten by eagle. Which came first, a perturbation from within the electromagnetic fold (a 3-D expansion based on different properties) which does exist, and as well, we are all told that soon they will have reduced all forces to just one letter, say, b = b, and we will be marveled, that all forces are now understood as actually just a transformation of one into another fold, now two folds, merged end to end, yet one day will all reduce to one letter, b, yet are not God. Okay, I agree they are God.
Or are there?
Is not fire (emotion)
a part of love,
and air (heavy breathing),
and water (of life) merge
into matter (earth) to bring not life, but animation.
Love not the animation,
but the animator.
Most biblical translations miss this distinction. This is no life on Mars, sorry to say, there never will be, God did not create, God/dess “animated”. It is not creation, it’s all an illusion of animated matter, it’s not real, that part, yes, move away from, as you prefer, “detach”, but not the interaction between you and that other that has no form, yet carries all the meaning in a world above ours (one vault among eight in the library is the akashic record archives, another is : “Meaning” : similar to the Kabbalist ten, yet three (head, heart, and scrotum) have merged into one, a simple reference would be our three brain types which coordinate in unity to assist perception, but not meaning, meaning, they have not merged, they coalesce).
there is or will soon be matter in motion.
This does not equate,
to also, ‘having a life’.
I need to add something for clarity. I stated that I had an out-of-body-experience (obe), yet also, that I couldn’t view my face, which I should have, had i had an obe. Here’s why. At that point I was very familiar with self-induced obe’s. I could trust that whatever, the entire experience will be all mental, of course there is a physical strain, but you don’t have to move, if you don’t want to. You can stay in bed. A sauna. And like no different than walking into your favorite restaurant, you can relax even before the meal arrives. Well, the instant I was free, i traveled back to my home planet for a briefing, no time to look back.
The words of James Bacque in the Foreword were prescient indeed.
“Thanks for the information–as you guessed I have encountered much of it myself already. I wish you good luck . . . Be as moderate as you can in expressing your very important findings. Remember that hardly anyone knows as much as you do and some of your findings are very upsetting.”
I can personally attest, as Andrei has already here above, that :
“Let’s begin with the latter: his facts.
Frankly, not only have I known about 80% of them, but I would add that most educated people in Zone A also have known about it. I mean – this is not big news in, say, Asia or Latin America.”
Andrei is right that Larry’s facts are not big news in Asia, Latin America and we could certainly add in all the non-Western world.
But this does not apply to Europe, and all its geographic extensions, that have been forcing Modernity on “others” over the last 5 centuries at the price of the extinction of numerous civilizations, worldviews, and the lives of hundred of millions. Propaganda, historical and present lies, explain why the minds of most Westerners, as well as the elites of “other” continents, do not know the facts Larry exposes which explains that these facts may appear very upsetting for those people as James Bacque presciently informed about in his foreword.
Arguing with these people is thus understandably a difficult proposition as the exchange between Andrei and Marcus Chapman illustrated. I personally find that this kind of argument is a lost cause because there will always be isolated facts to pick from that will allow would be critics to deny the veracity of Larry’s argument. I think that it would be a far more world changing and convincing proposition, for everyone, to try to understand the mechanisms that “force” peoples’ individual thinking, behavior, and actions in the present.
Peoples’ individual thinking, behavior and actions in the present, are indeed being “forced” in their minds by their “societal cultural field”. By that I mean that the citizens’ individual thinking, behavior and actions in the present, do not emerge from their own free-will but from the cultural field in which they live in and share with their fellow citizens. And the cultural field of a society is given by the civilization it participates in and its worldview.
This explains why the daily life experience, of those who live in the non-Western world, forces them to observe that the facts are different from the propaganda and the lies of the West. But this also explains why Western citizens are unconsciously driven to think that they are on the side of good while “the other” who is different must necessarily be on the side of evil. Western behaviors, and actions, are thus unconsciously been forced to try to change “the other” in their own image… and Western propaganda and lies are thriving in such an environment.
While Larry’s exposé is largely correct I’m afraid that it will only inflame passions on all sides which unfortunately will not convert anyone. Exacerbating passions is never conducive to a better understanding between people. It only delineates the boundaries of different camps of would be warriors. I guess what I’m trying to say is that, in the present situation of the world, fighting is not the solution. We have to find a way to render understandable to all what are in reality very “otherworldly” civilizations and worldviews. Only such an understanding could possibly allow humanity to set its sights with earnest on answering the predicament the human species faces in this Late-Modernity.
Well, I do understand where you are coming from in your assesment, but then we most not forget as to what can REALLY focus the mind – when there is no food on the supermarket shelves, no petrol for your car and no job to pay for your morgage or rent. This is not “exacerbating passions”, this is the life’s reality that will be staring most of these people in the face. It will be, plain and simple, a case of surviving..
How did America become rich?
Good old Yankee Ingenuity, and a devotion to Democracy, Freedom, and the Rule of Law!
And if you believe this, I have some prime real estate/swampland right next to Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago resort that I would like to sell you….
America became rich through … War.
Far from being a peace-loving people as their propaganda claims, Americans are a war-loving people.
And Americans just love to shed other people’s blood in faraway lands in order to colonize … er “democratize” these countries.
America wages war to force other nations to adopt its malignant brand of Free Market Capitalism (aka the Washington Consensus) so as to privatize and deregulate their nations for plunder by American capitalism.
America wages war to steal or dominate the resources (like oil) of other nations so that the USA can control the energy that drives the economies of its competitors in other nations.
America wages war to compel other nations to continue propping up the United States Dollar as the world’s only reserve currency (aka American Dollar Imperialism) and thus enable Americans to live beyond their means and devour goods from around the planet in exchange for IOUs (US Treasury “debt”) that will never be paid off.
And finally, America has waged war to invade, conquer, and occupy the North American continent itself, which allowed the self-styled “Land of the Free” to steal Indigenous Native, Hawaiian, and Mexican lands, as part of the greatest land theft in human history.
The business (and national character) of America is War–mass murdering, genocidal, malevolent American wars.
Only 15 Years of Peace In The History of the United States of America
A most horrendous story you intend to tell. I know some of it, but no doubt you will bring in more. I would suggest that the telling of it may be too late for anyone to profit from it.
The current Covid bioweapon attacks on US and world populations are certainly nothing for the state you describe. It is indeed late in the day to speak of the avarice and evil so piled to the skies. Soon, a large part of the world population may not be around to read of it.
Many, perhaps yourself, do not believe in this coming chapter yet. I expect many to change their minds in the coming months. But, given your claims against the US it is really nothing much. Best wishes in the telling of your tale. I suspect the near future will provide some spectacular fireworks for an afterword.
I understand that some consider this essay a little bit offensive, because they do not see themselves (and their ancestors) as part of that America as described in the essay.
Without entering to discuss that this essay is well written or not, realistic or an hiperbolic exageration (for me it is an impressive piece) it is important to know about the history of the US to really understand it.
Knowledge of the historical background in where the US were born and developed is important. Most just have a very infantile (propagandised) idea about the history of the USA. Reading this Essay is a schock, a slap in the face.
You have to be mature and intelligent enough to see the real message in the Essay, to brush away the (wery well written) satire, and get to the heart of The Message.
For me it is: this l country (was) is based on lies. The American Republic was born dead. The (as some like to call) “Old American Republic” never existed.
I have read much of the writtings of the founding Fathers (Jefferson being my Favourite) anf for me the contrast have been there all the time. The contrast between what they said, their original ideas, their designs for the country, government, etc… What it is and what it should be are like nigth and day, black and white, good and evil.
So Mr Romanoff. Very Good for your Essay.
For those slapped in the face… wake up, look around, do something…
I would also recommend Daniel A. Sjursen’s True History of the United States or his many articles in TruthDig as good places to start. A good place to find collections of US primary sources is from the conservative Ashford University (which believes all this stuff) https://teachingamericanhistory.org/documents/ I have personally found them to be fascinating.
Interesting quiz. Unfortunately I only knew the answers to a few.
Details of Abe Lincoln was an eye opener. Others, like the ones regarding inventions, I had my doubts but didn’t know the details.
Regarding the deaths of Germans after the war. I checked out this website.
The population drop between 1940 and 1947 is at 1-2 million. This is strange and does not seem credible.
If 10-12 million died after the war how do they manage to gloss over this anomaly? A quick look in the internet gives figures from 3 to 7 million died during the war. If 10-12 died after the war that would be a total loss of around 25% of the population. How did the economy recover so quickly after the loss of such proportions?
That’s nothing. If you look at the official (heavily massaged) statistics, Japan exited WWII as a wash – same population after the war as before. Nobody died. Nothing to see here, although no explanation for Curtis Lemay’s firebombing that killed at least 10 million, but maybe that’s a small point.
The US, the victor in both instances, took control of the government stats departments in both countries and manipulated the population statistics in very creative ways, done mostly to cover up their genocidal crimes.
With Japan, It took me weeks to locate and examine the original population statistics city by city and town by town, from before and after the war, to arrive at accurate numbers. The US manipulations were thankfully done only on the national level – they didn’t bother recreating population numbers for every center. I suspect Germany is the same.
You can understand why this was necessary. If the true numbers are public information, everyone would ask what happened, and the truth of Eisenhower’s Death Camps would readily surface, as would the tales of ten or more millions starved to death – deliberately. Today, almost nobody knows because there is no remaining evidence to trigger their curiosity. It wasn’t Hitler burning all the books. It was the Americans, under orders from their Jewish masters. How can you generate sympathy for a holocaust of 6 million if I can prove you killed 12 million?
With Japan, if nobody died, then no questions asked about the 100 cities LeMay firebombed. Easier to rewrite the history books so all the truths are gone in one generation. Same as Germany.
The US has done the same (kill millions, then literally burn and rewrite the history books so all history is lost in one generation) in the Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Iraq, and much of South and Central America.
Could births have more less matched the number slaughtered?
The answer is forced population displacement.
All over Europe the Countries expelled their German Populations to the RFA and DDR,
in the years after the War. In Total they displaced about 15 to 20 millions Germans. Of which about 3 millions died also due to the endurances of the process…
Look at it in Internet under “Flight and expulsion of Germans (1944–1950)”
In the end looks like as if Germany had almost no losses in WWII…
Yes, the forced German population displacement by the “allies”! As for how many of these civilians died in that process, the 6 million figure is closer to the truth, not 3 million.
Here is what no less than the first western puppet chancellor of West Germany, Adenauer, himself admitted, http://worldfuturefund.org/Articles/Germanwardeaths/germanworldwarciviliansdeaths.htm :
“… According to American estimates, some 13.8 million Germans were expelled from Eastern Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, etc. 7.8 million arrived in the eastern and western zones. 6 millions Germans disappeared from the face of the Earth. They are dead and gone … …”
How many German civilians in total perished in WW2 and in the aftermath is unknown, and parts that are known are hushed up. As for the number of Germans murdered after the war alone, some claim even 11 million.
The above link concludes:
“… Since World War II the German political establishment has been very reluctant to investigate these matters. War crimes by England and America were a problem for NATO so these were ignored. War crimes by Poland and the Czechs were also hushed up because of German desires for better relations.
An utterly nonsensical event took place when an official “study” tried to pretend that only 25,000 German were killed in the giant fire bombing attack on Dresden
However, as time goes by, these matters will be researched and the world will know more. Exact figures will never be known. However, the official figures are clearly way too low. …”
Concerning German military deaths during WW2: the site https://www.feldgrau.com/WW2-Germany-Statistics-and-Numbers/ provides a careful breakdown, totaling 10,340,728 – more than 10 million that is.
I for one did not mind Larry’s hyperbolic statement. In fact, it yet again educated me as to how people like Mike Pompeo were accepted in the US American population and even seen as an asset. If he can say in public speech that they lied, they stole and they cheated which we all know, but that this is the Glory of the American Experiment?. That was a moment of recognizing a nation that lives on the lie.
This did not grow just today, it has been the working modus operandi forever. Where did these liars and cheaters and thieves come from?
I have a story – my father in law and he is not alive any longer so I can say this. He was first generation immigrant as a young child from Sweden. His parents had a saw mill and they came to the US for more opportunity. His mom had to work as a house cleaner and his dad worked as an assembler in some manufacturing plant. This is after having their own small business in Sweden. They struggled and from all family stories told, they were good people. He did his doctorate with loans from his mother’s employer and as the family stories go, there was rejoicing when he paid the last of the loan back.
So, this will be equal to many people that hold that their families were just good people trying to make a living.
My father in law was a gifted scientist with a number of patents to his name (the companies that he worked for of course own these), a good businessman, and traveled all over the world, working for the biggest companies in the world at the time, setting up new industry for countries operating sometimes in the grey area between military objectives and objectives of commerce. We call that the Military Industrial Complex. He hobnobbed with the highest echelon in the whole of the world and managed to catch as a wife and life long companion a DAR from the Philadelphia lawyer class. He was forever known in this family as the ‘dirty Swede’.
So far the quintessential story of the immigrant child doing well for himself we would say, yes?
He was also a good and honorable man. But what he had to do to support the system took a toll.
Forward a few years when he was older and retired and visited us frequently. One evening we had friends over and a spirited conversation ensued: ‘Where were you when the wall came down’ (the Berlin Wall). My dad in law took himself off to bed, too noisy and too spirited for him at his age.
The next morning we were alone at breakfast. My dad in law gently asked me if I wanted to know where he was ‘when the wall came down’? Of course I could not pass up the story. So, he told it. He told me that he was part of the Rape of Russia and he was in Russia and had been there in periods for a year or two before. He also knew what they were doing was unconscionable and told me what the military and the industrial focus and actions were at the time and how people justified the actions of the US. For him, this conversation was like an unburdening of his soul as he was inherently a moral man. The conversation continued for months. The ‘dirty Swede’ now had to take part in dismantling the ‘dirty Russians’. Even today if I look at some of the Russian industry, I can say, my dad in law set that up for the only purpose to enrich the US and impoverish Russia – I think he will be pleased to see it now as it is enriching Russia as it should have been. And so we can go through a few other countries like India and South American countries. I’m talking here of a man with one hell of a resume.
‘The Glory of the American Experiment’, Pompeo said.
So I heard firsthand the details of the Rape of Russia from a high level insider, a moral man, a principled man, a good man, an immigrant made good. The system of war and cheating and lying and stealing and I will add bribing is absolutely true. Where did it come from? Did it grow up in the US? Or did it come in to the US as Larry says here?
In this presentation of this ebook through its sections we will learn more about that. To my mind it is something that the USA’ers must know and also must come to terms with, in order not to go to war against China, to leave Russia be, to stop bombing countries into oblivion, and to stop raping other countries, to take their talons off the rest of the world with all their long arm jurisdictions so that we all can take part in development. No, you are not militarily intervening ‘over there’ in order to be safe ‘over here’. You’re stealing, and lying and raping and killing and calling this a ‘rules bases international order’.
If you don’t know it, you cannot recognize it. If you don’t know it you cannot resist it. It is also an incredibly hard lesson to learn.
“During the Swedish emigration to the United States in the 19th and early 20th centuries, about 1.3 million Swedes left Sweden for the United States of America. While the land of the U.S. frontier was a magnet for the rural poor all over Europe, some factors encouraged Swedish emigration in particular. The religious repression practiced by the Swedish Lutheran State Church was widely resented, as was the social conservatism and class snobbery of the Swedish monarchy. Population growth and crop failures made conditions in the Swedish countryside increasingly bleak. By contrast, reports from early Swedish emigrants painted the American Midwest as an earthly paradise, and praised American religious and political freedom and undreamed-of opportunities to better one’s condition.” (Wikipedia)
This was about 40% of the population of Sweden at the time. My grandparents were among them. Needless to say, millions of Swedes came to the USA on the run. What they didn’t come here with, however, was a sense of entitlement that brought others here, “… to overspread and to possess the whole of the continent which Providence has given us for the development of the great experiment of liberty and federated self-government entrusted to us.” (John L. O’Sullivan, 1845).
This is what Romanoff was all hyperbolic about, the notion that certain Europeans were “chosen” by God to come to this continent, displace and murder the Native Americans, and steal their land. It is also why we have been the AngloZIONIST Empire for a long long time.
American and European columnists are becoming increasingly vocal in actually recommending another American revolution, convinced that only a popular uprising of the population acting in concert would have the power to reverse this tide. *EVEN* then, America, unlike almost every other nation in the world, will continue to be a nation built on lies.
Note my one word change. If the imperial “we” can put a fake populist like Chump in charge funded by the likes of Bolton and Adelson and no one notices that something is wrong, what are the odds that the masterminds of such a “revolution” would be a deep state / shadow government operatives right from the starting gate?
It’s in the hands of YHWH, Allah, or whatever you want to call him now. When the U.S. gets into mixed martial arts smackdown with China (and probably others such as Russia, Iran, and N. Korea) probably in March 2022 is my guess, the least bad we can hope for somehow is an announcement of an armistice followed by sufficient European troops on U.S. soil before the official surrender. For one thing, a civil war will probably start early during WW3 (or WWV or WWVI (Cold War, War of Terror)). Of course, getting nuked is more likely, in which case the destination of 7.9 billion will be sorted out by Peter and a three-headed creature. A U.S. win would mean chaos everywhere at home and abroad for decades as it loses the “peace” that is far more violent than the war. As far as I know, from what I have read primarily from sites such as The Saker and Moon of Alabama, Russia and China do not have the ability to mount an operation to restore order in the U.S. Perhaps they could develop the capability quickly in record time but it only takes four days of bare shelves or lack of power and the like for chaos to ensue (or so I keep hearing).
as a very well known russian said:
“Every society is three meals away from chaos”
I think the amuricans lack now two of them…
“… American and European columnists are becoming increasingly vocal in actually recommending another American revolution, convinced that only a popular uprising of the population acting in concert would have the power to reverse this tide. *EVEN* then, America, unlike almost every other nation in the world, will continue to be a nation built on lies. …”
Except that the premise itself is an utter impossibility. The flaccid Pindos stock lacks basic vitality, vigour and intellect requisite for any semblance of an “uprising”. An exemplar of a genetic blind alley if there ever was one.
“n. The government of which country for decades silenced political dissidents by performing frontal lobotomies and turning them into vegetables?”
Same happened in Norway, not only dissidents but “uppety” Sami men/women that held on to traditions and thought their language to the children(Romani/gypsies people were treated the same).
This barbaric bullsh#t went on up to the 70`s.
I have family that was destroyed with lobotomy by Indremisjonen and the gov.
(Indremisjonen- https://nn.wikipedia.org/wiki/Det_norske_lutherske_Indremisjonsselskap )
…the US government has made it illegal to teach many of these truths in America’s public schools…
I hope elaboration is in parts 2-6.
About three months ago I sent the following summary of the US involvement in wars, coups, and (known) assassinations to my nephew. (A major in the new US Space Force) Sometimes it’s helpful to actually see with your own eyes what the problem is.

In my opinion, your articles are all very good, and indeed the Jews have conducted a lot of crimes against the humanity…
But why don’t you also speak about the Levites (who select among themselves and appoint Rabbis for the Jews and their synagogues)?
I’d say that the Levites (Rabbis) are the true top criminals there, aren’t they?
P. S. For example, the Levites (Rabbis) for several thousand years have been collecting 10% of income from all the Jews (see the Bible).
The topic here is not the Levites. Why don’t you write that for us?
In my opinion, Larry is very good in writing (I like his articles very much), so I hope that my question could be helpful (useful) for him.
As for me:
a) I am not a researcher or writer, and
b) English is a foreign language for me.
Anyone who is interested in the Levites can read the Bible (the Old Testament) and ask himself (herself) this question:
if there is a group of people (the Levites = Rabbis), who for more than 2,000 years have been collecting 10% of income from all the Jews (through their synagogues), then aren’t they completely responsible for all crimes of these Jews against the humanity?
…where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” 2 Cor. 3:17
In a Nutshell:
The USA is owned by the 1%. The Washington crowd is THEIR elected-by-the-proles management. Evolution to a sane (mostly antithetical) society is frustrated by cultivated pluralism, and the Electoral College, the final (peaceful) refuge of the owners.
I may be wrong, but I doubt it.
