THE FUNDAMENTALS OF MAKING UP YOUR OWN MIND
by Jon Rappoport

Since I’ve been investigating, researching, and writing about what manipulators and controllers have been doing to the population, it may SEEM as if I’m saying you and I and everybody else are, at bottom, victims. You could read it that way if you were predisposed to. But you would be wrong.
Becoming more deeply aware of what the Matrix is and what it entails is highly important. But it’s really only important if the individual already has a strong foundation of responsibility.
I’m talking about making up your own mind about your own life and your own profound objectives and your own deep desires. And acting on that. And taking responsibility for all this in a very natural and final way. What ideas do you buy? What ideas do you reject? What will you create for the next 50 years? Your decision. Your choice. Your action.
We all fall into the victim trap now and then. The question is, do we dig ourselves out of it? Or do we wallow in it?
Freedom is such a basic thing because, in that space, you make your own most important decisions privately and finally, and you alone take the consequences. You, I, everybody. That’s not a theory. It’s the way it is. In a sense, it’s proof that freedom exists.
Now, when a nation or a world sinks to the point where so many individuals are so unaware of what’s happening around them, what decisions are being made on their behalf, it looks like we’re all victims forever. It looks like we never had a choice about anything important. We’re all slaves and we have no power. And this is where a lot of people stop and settle on a picture of what reality is. And that picture is: THE CONTROLLERS ARE DOING BAD THINGS TO ME AND I CAN’T STOP IT. I HAVE NO WAY OUT.
AND WITH THAT PICTURE IN PLACE, the individual will embark on a project of finding the worst thing that’s being done to him, the thing he couldn’t possibly fix, and he’ll say: “You see? That’s proof! That shows I’m helpless. We’re all helpless.”
So be it. If that’s where a person wants to stop and make his home and set up shop, that’s his choice. But that’s not just a choice about chemtrails or radiation from Japan or war or the global bankers, that’s his BASIC choice. That’s what it becomes: his basic choice about his own life and his own power.
As in: he doesn’t have any. He doesn’t have any choice and he doesn’t have any power and he doesn’t have any imagination he could use to make his life far, far different. That’s a hell of a conclusion. But so be it.
Of course, our esteemed leaders try to cultivate and create more victims, because more victims are the building blocks of the world they want to make. But that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about the space of freedom, within which an INDIVIDUAL DECIDES TO PLAY A HOLE CARD AND BLAME SOMEBODY ELSE FOR HIS OWN CHOICES AND HIS OWN FAILURES AND HIS OWN INACTION.
You see, when it comes right down to it, that’s his version of power. That’s his best version of power. And if he wants to fight that war and lose and destroy himself, that’s his choice. And it turns out there is nothing you or I can do about it, even if we wanted to do something.
And this victim situation I’m describing? You can find it in the street thug, you can find it in academia, you can find it all the way up to the boardrooms of the most powerful corporations on Earth. That’s right.
Let’s sweep out the room. Let’s clear out the confusion. No one exits the Matrix thinking he’s a victim. Doesn’t happen. The premise that ANYONE is the kind of authority who can tell you what to do is based on a lie. The lie of your submission and surrender, which is followed by regret.
For the person who is strong, being deceived by an authority through misjudgment is a vital lesson. It shows you what fascism is really all about, on whatever stage it played out. You learn. You see. You react. You bought the con. You were drawn in one step at a time. You paid the price. You took the bait. You didn’t notice the strings being pulled. It’s a joke. In fact, it’s a cosmic joke, because if you look at human history, you see all the ways authorities of one kind or another have been propped up and sold.
Political authorities, religious authorities, money authorities, business authorities, psychological authorities, esthetic authorities, personal authorities, cultural authorities, “universal” authorities, the authority of the one space and one time and one energy and one continuum. All packaged and sold and delivered.
It was all invented through somebody else’s imagination, and we bought that imagination instead of finding our own.
IT’S YOUR OWN IMAGINATION THAT’S IMPORTANT, THAT’S THE KEY. AND YOU HAVE TO ACCESS IT AND USE IT AND DCECIDE WHAT TO DO WITH IT.
The victim ALWAYS buys somebody else’s imagination. He keeps buying and buying until he’s broke, and then he wants to blame somebody for his own habit, his own addiction.
When you offload enough of other people’s imagination and find enough of your own, you discover that reality can be far, far, far, far different than you supposed. There is actually no limit on what imagination can create and bring into being. With work.
It takes strength to go on that road. It’s not a little party with doilies and ribbons and balloons and cartoons. It’s certainly not a party where somebody cries and gets mad because the cake fell apart and somebody else has to be blamed.
If you think what I’m doing here is ULTIMATELY about BLAMING the shapers of this fake consensus Reality, stop. That isn’t it. I’m talking to intelligent strong individuals who want both knowledge and power. Power that comes from living an intense creative life, a life of imagining and inventing new unprecedented realities. ON THEIR OWN. Period.
Do I care what Rockefeller and global bankers and CFR and Trilateralists and Bilderberg and the Vatican and mega-corporations and governments and intelligence agencies and fake scientists and fake media are all doing? OF COURSE I CARE. But that’s step one. That’s something that is a prelude to the INDIVIDUAL AND HIS POWER, HIS IMAGINATION, HIS INFINITE CREATIONS.
Into the Matrix, OUT of the Matrix. ONLY THE INDIVIDUAL EXITS THE MATRIX.
